not very favorable tho first part ot
the day, as a cold rain fell in the
early morning, but towards noon the
sky cleared and the afternoon was
nice and warm. On account of the

none   the   worse.

GENERATION after generation has mounted those steps and
entered that door, and still—although the original owners are
gone—the old home clings to its youthful appearance. The bride
and groom of yester-year, who made this their love nest planned
wisely. They saved and preserved by the use of paint, pther generations saw the wisdom of this, and today the old home stands as
a monument to those who not only built well but knew the economy of surface preservation by paint
has been in use throughout Canada for many
years as a surface protection against the elements of decay.

humor of his allusion, "No," she
said, "while we are really horse]
thieves, and have been discovered by
lhe police with stolen horses in our|
possession, we trust to the paroled
honor ol' our prisoner, and the Bareness of our aim, to bold our captive
in subjection."
in this way they travelled three
dei']> during several miles of their
journey. They kepi up a spirited conversation that covered in its range
many topics of Interest. College
educated himself, Ronald found that
Ids companions' range of reading had
covered the works of all well-known
authors, which they were both able to
discuss with an understanding
intellectual grasp that surprised him?
Expressing surprise nt their umisual
accomplishments in lhat respect, heI
asked them bow it was. In reply Mr.
Fraser told him that, feeling lhe disadvantages under which they were
placed, by being so far removed from1
schools and oilier advantages for
their daughter, ihey^occupled the long
hours of the winter nights in reading
In turns to each other, and in discussing th*; wonts thej; read. He said
they found this mode of pastime very
interesting, and thus the loneliness of1
their home life In the lack ol neighbors and social advantages were large-
ly overcome.
This Interesting information height-!
ened his admiration for his companions. Ih ing of a studious and liter-j
ary turn of mind himself, their conversation proved to be of Intense in-
terest Id him, as his also seemed to
be entertaining to them. In this way
the otherwise tedious hours of the
long trip passed most pleasantly.
Gradually, as ihey advanced; lhe
deep blue haze of the Moose Mountains looming in the distance, and
blending more and more with the
green of Ihe vegetation, indicated lhe
progress they were making. Though
the sun was hot, a light, western
breeze swt eplng over the prairies added not a Utile lo the comforts of the
trip. By Ronald the weariness of his

I Was Greatly Benefited by
Taking Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound
Sydenham, Ont.—"I took your
medicine before my baby was born,and
il was a ureal help to me lis I was very
poorly until I bail started to take il. I
just felt an though I was tired out all
lhe lime and would have weak, faint
spells. My nerves would bother me until I could get little rest, night or day.
1 was told by a friend to take Lydia E.
Pinkham's vegetable Compound, and I
only took a few bottles and it helped me
wonderfully. I would recommend it to
any woman. I am doing what 1 can to
recommend this good medicine. 1 will
lend lhat little book you sentme to any
one I can help. You can with the greatest of pleasure use my name in regard to
the Vegetable Compound if it will help
others take it."—Mrs. HARVEY MlLLI-
qan, Sydenham, Ont. (
11 is remarkable how many cases have
been reported similar to this one. Many
women arc poorly at such times and get
into a weakened, run-down condition,
when it is essential to the mother, as
well as the child, that her strength be
kept up.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is an excellent tonic for the
mother at this time. It Is prepared
from medicinal roots and herbs, and does
not contain nny harmful drugs. 11 may be

|his .side. Her sprightly bonring under the strain through which she bad
pnssed, and through which she was
still passing, Indicated a vitality that
seemed to surpass human endurance.
Showing no sign of weariness, she
kepi up her part of the conversation
wlib a vivacity and cheerfulness llml
was most surprising to him.
Toward tlie lad.' hours of lhe afternoon they reached lhe foothills ol Uie
mountains, Here, lu order lo relieve her mother's distress, she decided in gallop ahead, aud bo the flrsl
bearer ni' tlio itood news. Accordingly selling spurs lo her horse, she was
soon oul nl slghl over lho brow of tlie
first rldgo of bills. Within an hour
oi' her departure, Ihey reached tbe
house and soon had their horses
cornlled. Tlio; were assisted in this
task by a couple of young men from
the settlement, who, on learning ol
lhe kidnapping, had conic to ihe ranch
hi offer their assistance.
Through feelings of delicacy, Ronald
remained behind chatting   with   the
men, while .Mr. Fraser wenl Inlo tlie
house to rejoin    the    family.     Both
men. Ronald learned, were on transport   service   during   the   rebellion.
What interested thmi    chiefly   was,
however,    the    particulars  regarding
the abduction.     They evidently had

tHey endeavoured    to   make I
him their informant.    He accordingly
related the facts io them. !
Mr. Fraser. In due lime appeared at. |
the door nnd invited them Inlo thej
bouse. As Ronald entered the large
room, Mrs. Fraser, still showing the
signs of distress and anguish she had
suffered during their absence, arose
lo greet him. Taking his extended
hand Into boili her own she held It
clasped, while for a few moments, unable to find words lo express herself,
she scanned his face with eyes dimmed with tears of joy and happiness.
Composing |ierself, at last she said:
"Oh, Mr. MacRae, it was God's Providence that sent yon oil" way when be
did lo save our child! I cannot find
words lo express our deep gratitude
lo you for vlrat jou havo^ono for us.
But, I nm sure. God will reward you."
"Mrs. Fraser, it is sufficient reward
lor me to have earned your gratitude.
I was fortunate to have been in a posl-
ilon to give what help I could at a
lime whin I was needed. We were
fortunate In being able lo save your
daughter iu time before harm ^atl
overtaken her, and to have her
brought home safe lo you again. In
that itself I feel that I am well rewarded. What I have done, with the
assistance of Mr. Fraser, was only
doing a duty that ah>* other man
would h.ave done In the same position.
At the same time. .Mrs. Fraser, 1 thank
you for your most kind words."       *
"Mary has told me what she has
gone ihrough, and she feels more
lhan grateful lo you for what you
have done. It was a sore trial for us
while ll lasted, hut God lias been good
lo us in restoring our daughter to us
without harm. While we feel that
we shall nt-x^r bo able to repay you
for what you have done for us, our
gratitude and blessings shall follow
iiiu iii the years lo come wherever
you may be."
Deeply Interested, lhe only words
Ronald could Und to express himself
were: "ll Is kind of you In say Ihal,
Mrs. Fraser, and I shall ever bear Hull
fact In mind."     ,
As iho iwo strangers intimated Ihelr
Intention to sinning on their return
Inline, Mrs. Fraser persuaded upon
ihem lo remain for dinner, she
then proceeded Iii sel Ihe table and
niiike perpnrnllons for the evening
meal. The men. In ihe meantime,
sal around and engaged In conversation llll the dinner was prepared.
They had nol long lo wall, lor I lie
table sei io accommodate six, was
soon ready and laden Willi everything
lo tempi tho appetite. Arier Inviting them li, sli In, she went to the
stairway and called her daughter, who
was dressing lor the dinner.
Tlie few niomenls lhat preceded the
daughter's apperrance were exciting
minutes for Ronald, who had not yel
seen her decked oul In female garb.
He awaited In r appearance with a
rapidly pulsating heart, As she en-
lered lhe room, he Immediately arose
from bis chair at the (able and, stepping back, he drew oul tlie chair reserved fo:1 her on his lefl. As she
sat down she acknowledged his courtesy with a nod and, smiling, thanked
him, Too mentally oinfused to lake
note of her appearance, he sat down
beside her and carried out his pari
with sufficient composure to conceal
his menial agitation. Trained in the
art of tablo manners, and conscious of
common usages, he did hls'paTl with a
natural ease of .Manner Ihal attracted no attention from those around
htm, she. "io the manner born," responded with equal grace.
Mrs. Prasor, presiding al lho head
of llie [able .mil generous tu a fault,
pnssed the good things witli which
her table was supplied, and urged her
guests iii parliiko generously. This
iho appetising food tempted them io
dp without urging. Tho two si rung,
ers had a long ride ol twenty-Are
miles ahead of them befori   renchlng
their   l les   foi    the   night,   thero
was, accordingly, no pressing on them
lo prolong iheir slay. Before leaving, however, they Intimated lo Mrs.
Fraser that, judging rrom Ihe Interest
the people oi' their selllemenl were
taking In the disappearance of her
daughter, she need nol be surprised if
she should lime several guests for the
following   evening.    Slio   told   them
thill   she   would   be   pleased   to see   as
many of them as fell like coming. "Wc
have lots of room." she said, "we
shall be pleased lo eiiieriain them the
best we can."
Alter a refreshing bath In Hie cool
waters of tlie lake, Ronald was sii-oll-
ing along tlie beach in th" direction
nl' the house when Mr. Fraser called
him to conn and join Hi" family circle on the verandah. Here he had
the flrsl opportunity ol gelling a good
look at the young lady as she graced
lire family lire—the young lady around
whom his chief interest al the present
lime centred. As she sal In from of
Itlni, now daintily atllrcd in a muslin
frock, her nimble lingers deftly working on an intricate plei r embroidery, and at the same time keeping up
an animated conversation, (ids young
soldier, so lung removed from Hie social advantages to which he had been
accustomed, became deeper and deeper enmeshed In her attractive charms.
Her thick mass ol wavy brown hair
was neatly arranged wiih slight waves
covering tlie upper corners of her
forehead; thence It was drawn with a
wavy sweep along the sides of her
head, covering the ears, and gathered
in a neat broad roll al the back of her
head and neck. Her lull blue-gray
eyes, encircled by long curved dark
lashes, were overhung by dark slightly arching brows and a full Intellectual forehead. Her regular features
showed strength and refinement, lending a cast to her countenance that
would attract attention among many—
a face that would be noticed for distinction rather lhan for beauty. Her
skin, while showing evidences of
weather tan, still retained its natural
unruffled smoothness of surface. In
appearance she was the picture of
heallh and perfect physical development. She had that strength of carriage and poise that ls characteristic
of an athletic and active life iu lhe
Ronald took in these delalls of her
personal appearance while engaged in
conversation on general topics and
mailers of local and home interest.
This was kept till (he dusk of lhe
evening, when Mrs. Fraser suggested
retiring and taking a long rest in tlie
morning. This suggestion was readily agreed to by all three weary
travellers. They were all commencing to show signs of weariness, especially Mr. Fraser, who, as he sat
in bis chair, was yielding lo nature's
demand for sleep.
"Mr. MacRae." said Mrs. Fraser,
"your room is the one on the northwest corner at Ihe head of Ihe stairs.
I shall leave a lighl in it for you when
you feel like retiring. I hope that
you will enjoy a good rest, for I am
sure you will need it after all lhat you
have gone ihrough the past two days.
Goodnight all."
"Goodnight, mother dear," added
Mary, as she hugged and kissed her
mother affectionately on retiring.
Ronald was shown to his room a
short lime after this by Mr. Fraser.
It was one of four bedrooms inlo
which the upper floor of the house
was divided. While the room, whose
rustic walls were whitewashed, was
chiefly furnished with rustic handmade furnishings, evidently the bandy
work of Mi-. Frnser himself, It was
neat, tidy and clean, and as suggesllve
of homeyness ns lhe lower apartments nt th,- house. Winn particularly look bis fancy was Ihe while Immaculate!) clean linen sheets between
which he was to sleep—n luxury he
had nut enjoyed since he hail enllsl-
ed wiih Hie Queon'a Own Rifles at
Toronto four years before, and with
which regiment be hud served mull

horsemanship, to act as scout in advance of the troops, II was a pleasing denouement in nn unexpected and
exciting two days' adventure, Ills
lasl thoughts as lie yielded to the

within lhe past Iwo days, had become
an obsession with him.

Making Theatrical History
Edmonton     and     Calgary     Register
Strong Interest in "Lightnin'i"
With mall orders pouring in and
other early indications of heavy at
tendance, thaf engagements of "Llghtnin"' In Edmonton the week of May
12 and in Calgary the week of May 19,
are expected to contribute inleresting
chapters to theatrical history in the
Canadian northwest.
When John Golden first planned to
send Thomas Jefferson, Bessie Bacon,
Charles E. Evans and a rPal all-star
cast on a tour of the principal Cana
dian cities, several of his colleagues
predicted dire results. The expense
of sending such an organization for
long jumps through a rather sparsely
settled section of tho country was regarded by older producers as precluding any chance for profit. But the
tour has been a brilliant success, financially as well as artlsllcaly. An
enormous gross was registered during the company's two weeks' engagement In Winnipeg and packed theatres
have been the rule in the cities since
visited.   •
During the Edmonton and Calgary
engagements tho usual Wednesday
and Saturday matinees will be played.
The Kmplre Theatre in Edmonton ls
now conducting Its regular box office
sale for the week of the 12lh and the
Grand Theatre, Calgary, ls filling mall
order for the week of tho 19lh.

Then—if skin is dry—apply a

so cared for is not injured by

by dirt.

one man in every four in British
Columbia Is exclusively engaged in
somo actual process of logging, manufacturing; or selling B.C. wood product!!, according to figures based on
official   Industrial  estimates.
in other words, if a lumberman Is
a man who makes his living out of
tlie produce of a log. then no less
than twenty-five per cent, or the entire muh- working population of British Columbia comes under that category.
There are between '10,000 and 41.-
Olltl men employed hy the i 620 concerns handling B.C. wood either In
its raw state or one nf its numerous
manufactured forms.
This army of workers may he classified as follows: 111,111(1 in thc logging Industdos, 16,800 In tho plants
converting forest products, 2,200 lu
selling either the unmanufactured oi
finished materia,, and 2,300 solely occupied in Its transportation to the

a  livelihood.
It la quite reasonable to estimate
that the wage-earners of the timber
industries and theln dependents comprise one-fourth of the entire population of the province, and so actually outnumher the inhabitants of the
city  of  Vancouver.

Supplied New Word
"Buncombe" Said to Have Originated
In  House Debate
Buncomber, meaning Inflated or
bombastic speerlmiaking. simply for
effect, is said to have originated in
the following way: In the debate on
the Missouri Compromise, In the Sixteenth Congress, Felix Walker, an old
mountaineer of Norlh Carolina, who
represented Buncombe county, a part
of his district, rose to speak, says the
Detroit News.
The House, however, was clamoring
for Ihe question, end several members
gathered aboul lhe Carolinian, begging him lo desltt, while others left
the hall. The old man, however, persisted, saying that the people of his
district expected him to speak, and
lhat he was In consequence bound lo
make a spcecli for Buncombe. Hence
the meaning of the word: to speak
for mere show or popularity.
A  Lead  Towards  Moderation
Some   World   Power   Must   Vindicate I
its Faith In Disarmament
Without  utterly  disarming oneself
in an armed world, someone or otheri
has goi lo give a lead towards moderation.     Somewhere oi other a power I
niitsi  vindicate its good  faith about j
nil-round disarmament by keeping its
own armament notably low.    Otherwise  lhe general   will-to disarm   will
never begin.    Of course there is some
pleasure ot risk in this selling of the
generous example,     llul there is risk
aboul almost everything thai Is worth
I doing,  and  most  of  Europe's  recent
miseries have arisen from Ihe chini-
ercal  ainbiiinn  of one power or another lo secure an absolute physical
security which Is, In truth, utterly unattainable.     The sane policy for nations, as for Individual men. Is neither
lo court the most obvious and gravest
perils  nor  lo  dream  of  eliminating
peril completely from    their   lives.—

"if some of the pluck chat carried us

opinion ot a number of the old Bettlers
In ihe Beaverlodge district of tho
Pcaco Rlvei' counlrj of Northern Alberta.
A number of these men, who have
spenl from ten lo sixteen years in

in normal times cannot reasonably be
expected to earn, and having. Ihrough

can only conclude thai a good deal is

Elections arc on. The party candidates arc about fully "lined up"
and the battle of tho ballots will occur on Friday, June 20.
Previous to that date there will,
no doubt, be a barrage of oratory
and intensity of effort previously
unknown. Citizen duty will be morn
in evidence than ever heretofore.
It is, as tbe man of tbe walk would
say, up to every man and woman
to do his or her duty. Each voter
will be constituted both judge and
jury and tho verdict will be in his
or her hands. The bill will come
personally. All our three papers will
aim to give, full tfnbiased reports
of all meetings held and so lay tbe
bare facts before every elector. That
is the full measure of our prerogative. All parties are entitled to impartial reports and the people to unbiased evidence that they may best
be enabled to record their votes.

In a well contested game the Agassiz Central,, under tlie captaincy of
George Otfilvle, won tlie first league
match from Harrison Hot Springs
(Tigers) under the captaincy of Hiram Graham. The Tigers started with
an awful rush, and before the first
Innings closed . foun runners bad
crossed the rubber at home. However,
the veterancy of the Centrals (including G. Ogflvle and W. H. Hlcks) norm
began to show the advantage of A
steady head, and as the innings were
played hits matured into runs. The
crowd was very large, and If the
splr.lt shown this evening continues,
some lively games may be anticipated.
A nice-sized collection was taken up,
and the boys appreciate whatever donation can bo given, as the expense
of   balls  and   bats   Is  quite   an   Hem.

As the Liberal Candidate for
Dewdney, I have been the subject of some comment, in the
Press, generally friendly, but
sometimes badly astray as to
facts ad the matters of most importance.
John Oliver and I had no
"FALLING OUT IN 1916". In j
1915 we did have a misunder-i
standing re the nomination in!
Dewdney. But in 1916 I was oncl
of his strong supporters, and
was credited with being largely
influential in electing Mr. Oliver.
The man who was chiefly responsible for the misunderstanding between Oliver and myself
in 1915 has been dead for some
time, and that is the reason that
I have persistently refused to
discuss the subject. I think it
only the part of good taste to
erase guessing and let it rest.
I have never worn a "Sombrero" or "Cow Boy Hat" in my
life. I do wear John B. Stetson's
best "real Nutria" broad brimmed, soft hats, pearl gray in
summer and black in winter,
simply because they are the only
hats outside of a silk, that become me. I wear a white four-in-
hand neck tie for the same reason, I absolutely ignore fashion
ad wear just what suits my comfort and taste.
I never was editor of "Fruit
and Farm". I did found and
edit the "Fruit Magazine"' of
which I was justly proud, until
ill-health compelled me to give
it up, after three and a half
years in 1913, It then passed into
the hands of Mr. John Nelson,
who changed the name to "Fruit
and Farm" and the form to a
cheap, common publication. I
was so ashamed of the retrogression that, I never even contributed an article to the fallen angel.
Some of the things that I consider of public value during my
31 years residence in British Columbia are:
1st. The educational campaign
that I carried on from 1902 to
1909 establishing the proper
grading of fruit, under the
"Fruit Marks Act", Cor the Federal Government.
2nd. My services to the Agricultural and Horticultural interests of the Province, us editor
of the "Fruit Magazine" 1910
to 1913,

Deroche, from a tangled wilderness to a productive and picturesque home, that in a few more
years promises to be one of the
beauty spots of the lower Fraser Valley. This work I have
done almost entirely with my
own hands, and regained good
health in the operation. I have
experienced all the difficulties
and discouragements of farm
life, as a boy in Ontario and in
Dewdney, but the development
of agriculture is the future hope
of ^he prosperity of British Columbia just the same.
