THE SITUATION IS GRAVE
OLD CANNON CAN'T BE BROKEN.
Armament of Old Craft Was Made to
A good story Is being told at the
Mare Island navy yard" concerning a
Ban Francisco contractor who bought
all the old obsolete cannon which wer°
•old at the local yard some time ago.
The cannon were all of the smooth
bore kind, and In order that they
might be easily handled for shipment
to the city all sorts of schemes were
tried to endeavor to break them with
dynamite and blasting powder, but
they were unsuccessful.
An electric drill machine was even
•®t up at the yards and the cannon
were drilled full of holes in order to
weaken them for breaking open with
wedges, but this was also unsuccess-
ful. The cannon were then taken
away and the last heard of them they
were corralled in the hills near Point
Richmond, where an effort was being
made to break them open with dyna-
The cannon which proved to be so
strong were among the armament of
the war craft which sailed, the seas

Cures Her in Five Days.
"After my granddaughter of about
seven years had been cured of the
measles, she was attacked about a
fortnight later by a furious itching and
painful eruption all over her body,
especially the upper part of it, forming
Watery and bleeding sores, especially
under the arms, of considerable size.
She suffered a great deal and for three
weeks we nursed her every night,
using all the remedies we could think
of. Nothing would help. We tried the
Cuticura Remedies and after twenty-
four hours we noted considerable im-
provement, and after using only one
complete set of the Cuticura Remedies,
in five consecutive days the little one,
much to our joy, had been entirely
cured, and has been well for a long
time. Mrs. P. Ruefenacht, R. F. D. No.

A curious point in regard to the new
dogs act occupied the attention of the
Carnorvan county bench on Saturday,
aays the London Dally Mail. The su-
perintendent reported that eight per-
sons had applied for exemptions in re-
Bpect of dogs which were used for
churning, lssard Davids inquired
whether It had not been decided that
to use dogs for such a purpose was
cruelty, but several of his colleagues
replied In the negative. The bench
decided that the owners of the churn-
ing dogs must take out licenses.

Chicago, March 29. — The contro-
versy over a wage scule between the
general managers of the Western rail-
roads and their employes In the train
service can not be arbitrated. The
only way In which a strike can be
averted is for the officials of the roads
to make terms with the men. This is
the ultimatum Issued by the represen-
tatives of the two unions involved in
the difficulty after a meeting Thurs-
day night to consider the action of
the railroads In asking the federal gov-
ernment to try to bring about a set-
tlement by mediation, along the lines
provided by the Erdmann net. The
arbitration move of the general man-
agers was considered at considerable
length by the union representatives,
but the proposition was finally re-
jected and a resolution passed refus-
ing to aibitrate the wage scale ques-
The general managers Thursday
night for the first time, admitted the
situation was grave. The crisis was
Intensified by the fact that no com-
promise had been effected with the
representatives of the 15,000 locomo-
tive firemen, who are here negotiating
for higher wages and an 8-hour day.
Another conference was held between
the general managers' association and
a committee representing the firemen,
but nothing in the way of a settlement
Secretary Slason Thompson of the
General Managers' Association said
"We are waiting to see what the
government will do. We do not ex-
pect to hear directly in answer to our
request that the whole difficulty
should be arbitrated along the lines
suggested by the Erdman act, but we
believe when the labor leaders involv-
ed received word from Washington
that the government has been asked
to take a hand in the matter, that they
will look at the matter in a different
light and will be willing to submit the
iiuestion to arbitration. We are not
looking for trouble, but we have made
all the concessions we can afford un-
der the present conditions and the
sooner the men become reconciled to
this the better It will be for everyone
Benito, Manitoba, Nov. 26, 1906.
At Swan River Valley, In May, 1900,
a settler took up n homestead on Sec-
tion 30, In Township 34, Range 29
West of the First Merldan, at that
time 50 miles from a railway, tele-
graph, school or church. There Is
now a railway within two miles of
my farm, and all these other advant-
ages close at hand. His story is:
"After making my homestead entry
fee of $10 I had 4f .00 total (forty-five
dollars) capital. Through doing
homestead duties in slack times of
the year, I managed to get a start. I
am a married man of 28 years of age.
"I built my first house, or shack,
and broke up 8 acres, putting five
acres in crop the first year.
"This year, 1906, 1 had 80 acres In
crop—G5 acres in wheat, 20 acres of
which yielded 850 bushels, or 42 %
bushels per acre; 15 acres of oats,
which yielded 355 bushels, and one
stack of oats In sheaf for feed.

Best Violin Strings.
The best strings for violins are of
Italian make and are from the intes-
tines of spring lambs, killed in Sep-
tember. The process of drying and
bleaching of the woods and strings by
the hot Italian sun, rather than by
the artificial method used In other
countries, accounts In a great meas-
ure for the superior quality of both
materials. This Intense heat was also
the reason for the slow distillation
of the oils used by the Italian mak-
ers, which always remained at a high
temperature, and the varnish, slowly
soaking into the woods of the violins
beneath the heat of those Italian sum-
mers, produced. In part, the mellow-
ness of tone that gives to a Cremona
Instrument Its value, after a lapse of
200 or more years.—March Circle.
Laundry work at home would be
much more satisfactory if the right
Starch were used. In order to get the
desired stiffness, it Is usually neces-
sary to use so much starch that the
beauty and fineness of the fabric Is ;
hidden behind a paste of varying i
thickness, which not only destroys the
appearance, but also affects the wear-
ing quality of the goods. This trouble
can be entirely overcome by using De-
fiance Starch, as it can be applied
much more thinly because of Its great-
er strength than other makes.

is to leam as to the relative standing and reliability of tbe leading mnnui.ictur-
ers of medicinal agents, as tbe most eminrnt physicians are tbe most careful as to
the uniform quality and perfcct purity of remedies prescribed bv the.n, and it is well
known to physicians and the Well-informed generally that the California Fitr Svri-p
