Expert Opinion The Canadian Government recently sent an appraiser to the principal bicycle factories in this country, to determine the exact value of various makes for import into Canada. After an exhaustive investigation, his report to his Government rated Columbia Bi 7Vs per cent, higher than any other make and they«* pay duty accordingly. This but confirms the pop- dar verdict.

It is several years since hfr evolution, nnd '.she. has bnd rather a lively time not only in break-, ing-down the barriers of masculine disapproval but, in uprooting 1 a few. feminine cbnracteristics which proved to be superfluous. . ''•...', ;. The business -woman of to-day.has acquired the habit of thinking logically, di prefering' justice to sentiment, and of facing 1 a'shnrply outlined.fact without displr.j'ins 1 the siightert tondcncy to hysterics. And she is everywhere, this nineteenth century business woman, dignified, well- j groomed and tailor-mad':. She is very often ar pretty woman, 'but she never flirts—in business hours. She was rccontly in onrmidstnschief engineer of the great electric show .in JS'ew York. She is lecturing on the coasi of Norway on the eclipse of the'sim. S.he is superintending 1 funerals .in Boston, She is a war correspondent in Cub;i and an explorer in the.wilds o£ Africa. Very often she is the mother of children who adorn her. and who somehow am quite as dainty and lovable as any other children. • '. s Women have b'een lawyers, physicians and colleg-e professors so long that these I occupations have grown to seem leg!ti- j mateand normal fields of activity for in- ! tclligcnt, ambitious young women; but | ti is only within the past few years that j the VfomanVlentis.thas.appearpd, i s.t4'Oiii7 in her integrity, biceps nnd diploma, to [ smilingly assure tortured patients that- ; sJic "pulls teeth without pain," and will chat volubly with n. man whose mouth is dammed up with rubber and unexpressed adjectives. ,0ne of the mostsuccrssf ul dentists of New York is Dr. Josephine Maud Han- business in the Pickering building, Main street, in the prettiest kind ipf a little office. She is a. fine-looking woman, tall and dignified, and is a lively and entertaining talker. Her .work is of a nature that demands a vast knowledge of detail. In assessing 1 duties on imports she has need of an accurate knowledge of tables of weights and measures and for nil lines, of her work must be o-breast of the.tiroes even to a perfect understanding of tariff and tho money question. . . . • -.. Miss Grasej was born in Afon.trcal. Her pnents were Swiss. She came to Cincinnati when, quite a liltle child and has lived in a brokerage, atmosphere all her life. Her father was a broker a.nd at his death when Miss Helena Gra&er was only 10 years of age, his work was taken up by an. older daughter. She taught Miss Graser the,priuciples of tJic business. After a yenr and a half the sister .sold her interest, and married Dr. Hoethe, a well-known Cincinnati physician. Two years later Miss Craser started out for herself as customs broker and many of the. old patrons of her father and sister returned to Jicr, After an.cx- pericjice of seven years she has a thriving business and'is the-only licensed broker in the city. Women lecturers who are their own business manageo's and imprc.ssa.rios form an over increasing list. There is Miss Kiiigslcy, who talks about, Africa; Mrs. Custcr, who knows all about biif- ialos and camping in the west; Mrs, .T. Wells Champney, who is in touch with the latest developments in literature-, arts and politics; Miss Clarkson, who tells yon "what Kmerson-a-nd Browsing meant," or whatshc tJiinks they meant; Mrs, Olive Thorne Miller, the. feminine Audphon—women who are trying to reform! politics, and women who can talk with airy flippancy of the latest- fads in china or bonnets, or. who can fix you with an eagle eye while tJiey convince you. that tho Mahatmas have at last domesticated .themselves in the tenderloin district of New York.

She tit once started in business for herself, and now occupies an entire 'ouilding ou Sixth avenue near Twenty-third street. .Her patronagc.luis increased to such an extent thnt .she now employs ten men as assistants, all college graduates, and hn-s nctua,lly established a company called the "World's Dental Association," of which she is the manager.' When asked why f>ho did not. employ women as assistants and so aid the sisterhood, Miss Ennkin replied: "Why, I would like nbUi ing better, bu t do you know that since I began business not a single woman, lias applied to me for a position. I think worocn'arc too ambitious to start that way. All thv; women dentists I know nrc in business for themselves. : I began thnt way, however. I was in a dentist's office three years before going to college, nnd during vacation I used .to go a.s 'lady assistant 1 to help- pay -my way in the winter. I have hnd, altogether, inn? years' expuri- snce, and am very proud of the exhibit of dental work I was. a.ble to send to th? Atlanta exposition."^ / ' Miss Haiikin isji Brooklyn girl, young, vivacious, thoroughly in earnest, a graduate of the Brooklyn high school, and probably the 'most successful of the 200 women dentists in. the United States. The woman photographers, insurance agents, nnd lecturers of Boston share their progressive honors with Mrs. Alice E. Cram, one of the most prosperous contractors of the busy Hub. Mrs. Cram vas originally in business with her husband, but soon determined to manage her own business affairs. She is now established in offices next door to.hci-hus- band, a.ml has mot with unqualified sue-, cess. Although a.n unusually pretty woman, Mrs. Crnm possesses' a. keen business sense, ~is brisk and decisive in all dealing with men and women, and, as she says, "believes .in leaving ,- n-11 pre'iu'diccs, sentiments' and. personal)-' ties at home;" .a.nd, being a womanly woman, she has a, very lovely home at which, to -leave them.

Proven Klch In GoU u'.iil Copper—Martin Jfcl'lly TollH'tllo Story of , • IILH lUcli.'Strlba. . .: .Ln'st .Monday Martin Noilly, of Spokane, -Wash., was returning to Rose- lantl, Ii. C., afte'r an unsuccessful prospecting trip iuto the Salmon river district. ' He.'reached the Colitmbia river ut a point about six miles uorth of Trail Landing.'B, C., at noon'on that clay, and selecting a spot on the bunk of the stream at the .foot ofLookoutmountain he sat down to eat his dinner.; >\s he did so he noticed a huge bowlder hall buried in the scmd in a, dry. portion of the river not far'from where he sa.t. When be >vas through with his repast he shouldered his pick and sauntered ovev.townrd the huge bowled. Ite ex- nmin'e'd it at first, in a casual way, and then,his experienced eyo told him that it was promising-looking quartz rock. He struck his pick into it several times and dislodged a piece of the decomposed, rock., Great was his surprise' when upon picking up the fragment he saw 'traces of gold and 1 copper. IT.e walked around ,the bowlder and knocked of? piece after piece, and as ho did so his excitement incranscd with each succeeding disclosure. Tn speak- ing'of the circumstance to a St. T.ouis Globe-Democratooi-respbndi'nt; he said: - "It wn's some time T>°forc I fully realized what a fortune T ha:l discovered, but when it dawned upon me that at last I was a rich man I arti afraid I made KUiih demonstrations as would justify 'anyone who might have, seen me in believing- that I had lost,my senses. For several years I have been 'gmb- stake'd' in prospecting these mountains without. SUCCESS, and many is-the time I have gone hungry for the want of the price to get something to>nt, and can )'ovi blame me for going nearly crasy when T- realized that I was no longer poov?" \Vhcn Noilly had i1emn:istratpd to his satisfaction that the huge "mountain of rock before him was full of rich metal he, proceeded to locate his discovery by SEILLY'S BOWLDER. posting the usual notices taking in the ground upon which the boivkV.v rested. •He then 'selected a number of the specimens of rock that lie had chipped off, and, putting them in his pocket, he .'.tartccl for Kossland, arriving 1 there late in .the-nf-fwnoon."' '•• • He went to several ossaycrs afld left ?om'i of the rock to be assayed. The 'ji«.\t morning one assayer's report showed that the ore contained 4571 in gold K> l,he ton, besides.being rich in copper.. Tbc 'other two assays showed S47 and ?5S in gold and also copper. From the posit ion'of the bowlder, lying as it does ou tlie dry bad of the river all by ilj=el£ and at'the foot of Lookout mountain, which rears its crest.several thousand feet up in the a.ir, it-is evident that, a t.stJtne period this huge body of rock has beeome-dislodged from the niouiitn'-m and rolled down with fearful momentum to the point where'-it now rests. • ^ The .bowlder; ns near ns can be estimated, contains in the neighborhood of L'0,000 tons of rock. As-yctEeilly is un- clec-Wcd.what he will do v.-itb his bowl-, dci-'. He says he may conclude to have iV mined and shipped to the Trail smel- ter.for. reduction, .or he. rn:iy decide to 'dispose of it to some syndicate or capitalist for a. good round figure. He has F.et no price on it, and says he will not '.liitil be has hnd time to think the matter over. A.Tranco Modlam'B Prediction. Mile. Henrietta Concdon. the tra.nce raecliimi who is the rage of Paris, and who, Jimong other lucky guesses,.foretold that Queen Victoria would be in fresh mourning 'this year, has now prophesied that the queen will live to the !:ge of 90. This prediction will, no doubt, be the deathblow to the pi-iuca of Wales' hope, who may.ns well make up his mind to'go down to 'his grave an uncrowned king.

He entered the cabin with his companion, and there they found a lame youup: rmm called Amos, sitting by the fire scraping at an old violin with most disastrous results. He laid,the violin on the bed ai'.d started away to the stable with the horses. Mr.'Whitcomb at once took up the violin, tuned it, ami when Aaos returned was playing light and beautiful airs. Amos was entranced.. He sat down, and, mouth wide open in wonder, watched the musician.^ Then Jilr. \Vhit- comb struck up "Hail Columbia," and the youth could bear it no longer. He sprung to.his feet.. "If I had $50," cried he, "I'd give it all foi- thnt fiddle! I never heard such music/' . Mr. WhiteoraVsaid nothing, but kept on playing. By^ond by, whoii he .had finished, he laid the violin on- the bed. TJiis-was the young man's opportunity. He sprang tip, seized the instrument, carried it to tbe fire, where he could sec more plainly, and turned it. over and over, examining every pnrt, "Mister," he- sang- out, in high excitement, "I never in my life see two fid j dies so much alike as yours nnd mine!'* The tonp Year Bird. One of the most ill teresting species of birds described by Mr. Elliot is the red- necked pha.:a.r'ope, a beautiful bird, of which we sec little in these islands, but which 'is upon its native heath, in the nretic regions of America. It, is especially remarkable because, as rarely happens among birds, tbe female is larger and more brightly colored than her mate. And it is the hen bird that does all the courting. "The uia.le," says Mr. Elliot, "is as coy end retiring as the most bashful maiden, turning away from the proflercd attentions, first to this side, then to that, even flying to tire opposite side of the pool, or. to another -near by; but all in. vain, for he is followed by the. fair one who has .chosen him from his fellows, and there is no es- /inpe.

Therefore,''! say, whathasolready been implied—thoroughly chew your food. This old. admonition has been repeated RO oftin that it has become a platitude observed as often' in the breach --as in the fulfillment. Undoubtedly this .in due to Ac lack of a proper sense oMhe importance of mastication and insalivEr tion. Now that my renders understand the proper relation of these acts to the whole process of digestion, let us hope that the suggestion will be observed. Fresh bread, or any food whicJi-iE r.pt to form into a doughy or gluey mass is impervious to the digestive juices anfi should be avoided. The diastase of the saliva is incapable of changing starch to sugar if either the stareh is uncooked or the saliva not alkaline. Breakfast foods and other: starchy cercaJs, therefore,, should be- well cooked, and vinegar pickles shotfld. be sparingly used or saJivary digestion will be impaired. • The thinner the gastric juice the-moifc rapid and efficient will be the digestion oC meats a.nd other proteins. Ih.c,pTes- once o£ digested food in the-stomtch hinders the action of the gastric juice .on the undigested portion. Digested food should therefore be removod- r aE quickly as possible.
