ALL through the bleak winter
. months that home of yours has
given of hi best in comfort and
protection. It has sheltered you
and your family from the elements.
Naturally it has suffered somewhat.
Paint is needed to restore its beauty
and protect it from decay. Give it
the best that money can buy by
which costs no mote but assures a
greater degree of protection and
beauty than any other paint made.
B-H English Paint has been used
throughout Canada for many years,
winning highest commendation for
long wear, unusual spreading capacity and lasting beauty. Its basic
element is Brandram's Genuine B.B.
White Lead, famous as the world's
standard since 1729. Your home deserves this quality paint. See that
it gets it.

Ii was well inlo the silent hour of
mldnighl when final preparations were
made for the advance on the bandits'
camp. Their p.ans Were laid. They
tightened and fixed up their saddle
girths, and saw lo (he security of Ml
ihe fastenings. Then, witli their five-
arms loaded and ready for action, they
started on their way. Ronald leading
and the other closely following behind.
Increased precautions were taken lhe
nearer they approached Lhe vicinity
of the camp. In this way (hey continued their advance until, through
Ihe opening in Ihe trees, Ihey could
distinguish the small open place
wherein lhe tenl was located. At a;
signal from tin* leader, they stopped
lo lake careful note of tlie ground.
They could hear the horses grazing
and stamping close by. Beyond I heir
temporary pasture there was no stir,
lo indicate Ihe close presence of the
outlaws. All was quiet, Satisfied,
ihal all was safe, and lhat. no sound;
had yet betrayed Ihelr presence. Ron-:
aid proceeded lo carry his scheme of
advance into effect.
Signalling lUs companion to stop
where he was, lie look his position beside his horse and quietly urged hint'
forward. Finally emerging into the,
open .spare, and using his horse ns
cover, for his nan color blended well
wllh the surroundings, he gradually j
worked his way on, carefully guiding
his horse in lhe desired direction as
lie allowed him occasionally to pull at
a tuft of grass al his feet. • A few
yards beyond and slighlly to lhe right
was ihe tent, now distinguishable in
tho darkness. Willi his eyes now
well accustomed lo the darkness, lie,
on closer inspection, made out Ihe
lorin of the man on guard as lie reclined in front of the tenl. .lust
ahead of him two horses were grazing
on the space between, and, using
litem as additional cover, he continued lo slowly advance stop hy step.
When he was within ten yards or BOi
of the reclining man, he was startled;
to see him suddenly look up and take;
a look around the grounds. Effpc-
niailv screened behind ihe horse, he
still hopi d io es.Mpc detection, hui yei,
Without    uttering    a    sound, ami  la
Ronald knew that the crisis had
come, and that nirther delay was dangerous. He covered Ihe distance that
separated him from the reclining man
wllh the silence and swil'lness of a
panther. With unerring aim he landed him a blow on tlie head with his
"hilly" and the man rolled over unconscious, uttering a low moan.
Swiftly taking hold of the arm of the
prostrate girl, ne raised her lo her
feet. Seeing lhat she was conscious,
he placed his revolver inlo her hand,
gave her the bridle rein of Ids own
horse, and whispering into her ear,
he (old her that her father was nearby |
and to go to him. Then, taking . n
look in tho direction of the other
sleeping men, and noting lhat they
were still undisturbed, he rolled Ihe
unconscious man off Ihe saddle, took
his revolver and, picking up his saddle, he swiftly and noiselessly placed
it on the back of one of the horses
grazing beside him. Lastly, as if inspired hy a new idea, he went calmly
and quickly aboul aud cut loose, one
by one, (he remaining horses in (he
hand. He then moujited lhe one he
was leading and drove Ihem back over
the trail they had come. At the
(point where the trail ascended the
hill, Mr. Fraser, wiih his rescued
daughter, even in their agitation, commanded sufficient presence of mind to
turn them on to tlie (rail leading up
lhe side ol the lull. Quickly following al (he heel;, of Ihe horses, they
were soon out of danger on the level
prairie- above. The sound of firearms iu lhe valley below warned them
lhat the bandits had discovered their
loss—too late.

The siiii had risen In Iho north-east
and lis warm rays hail dried the dew
on tho grass by the time the three
weary traveller-!, Fraser, his rescued
daughter, and Ronald MacKae arrived
al ihe broken stretch of prairie that
hail been used lhe previous day as
their way soulh. Suffering from the
reaction and the weariness due to the
exertions and excitement of the previous thirty-six litem's, they decided to
yield to nature's demands for rest and
relaxation. They took advantage of
this suitable locution lo make a break
or two or three hours In Ihelr Journey
and enjoy u much needed rest. They
accordingly dismounted and tethered
their riding horses, while the remaining horses were allowed to range at
large In the vicinity, On lhe shady
side of n clump ol bushes, blankets
were spii-nil on the grass. Tlie provisions, ol which Ihere wns n plentiful supply in their haversacks, were
produced nnd preparations made to
enjoj Ihelr flrsl real meal.
While Mary spread oul the contents
ol lhe haversacks,   ltonald   produced
ishnicnt would be indicted;  perhaps
they would be tortured,-1 lien hanged."
"But, father, only one ol those men
knew I wns a woman. While I should
like lo see him caughl ami punished,
yet I think that shooting, or hanging,
would be a dreadful punishment, lie
has done me no real harm nor Injury,
and now that we have our horses buck
again. It is. not so bad. 1 think Ihe
rest of the gang hud enough punishment In the loss of Ihelr horses. Bon'l
you think so Mr. MacRae?"
Ronald*, thus appealed lo for the first
lime, entered into the discussion by
saying: "Miss Fraser, 11 Is sometimes
hard to decide on lhe justice or injustice of Ihe severity of punishments inflicted for various crimes. Hut, according to Ihe code of justice of western plnneer life, horse stealing ls considered one of the most serious crimes,
even on a par .villi murder itself."
"Why should It be considered a
more serious crime in Ihe wesl than
in Ihe east? Stealing a horse Is not
as bad as killing a man."
"It ls," Miss Fraser, "because human life depends so much on the service, of horses, that, in many ways, lo
be forcibly deprived of lhe use of them
means the life or death of those who
depend on them. This Is not the
case in thickly settled districts. There
law and order is administered nnd enforced by the proper.authorities, and,
where life ls not so dependent on the
services of the horse. It Is looked upon
ns nn ordinary case of theft, and ls
punished as : uch."
"Bul why," she added, "should.people lake the law In their own hands?
Why not let the proper authorities administer   the   law   aid   punish   for]
"II Is because of lhe difficulties o!
administering lhe law In large unset-
lied territories that Ihe people, feeling the lack of protection, lake the law
Into their own hands and deal suni-
harily In handing oul what justice is
due, according to Ihelr common code,
lo horse thieves and other offenders."
"I don'l know, Mr. MacRae, but it
seems lo me that laws of that kind,
land enforced in Hint, way, would be
In many cases drastic and unjust. So
many might he wrongly accused, and
innocent people suffer punishment and.
perhaps death, without a chance ol
proving their innocence."
"What you say is quite true," Miss
Fraser. "To those of us, who are
protected, and aro accustomed to the
ordinary procedure of law in su'.U
cases, lhe punishment may seem
drastic and unjust. Bul, on the other
hand, lo those who live surrounded
by lhe dangers of nn unsettled country, remote iiohi lho proper administration of law nnd order, It seems lo
ihem to be the only effective way of
handing nut swift justice lo a danger'
ous class of criminals."   ■

Concrete Railway Ties

Concrete railway ties, used on a section of a right-of-way In Northwestern
India, have proved to resist wear and
weather equally as well as wooden
ones, according to a report. It is believed their employment will result In
greut savings of lumber and labor,
since Ihey will not require replacing
as frequently as tbe timber. The
cement beam consists of two blocks
lied together with sleel straps. The
rails are fastened on by means of

Those who have tested oul numerous liniments will agree that where
something ls needed to dislodge a
deep-seated, more or less chronic condition, there is nothing lo compare
with Nerviline. It's because Nerviline penetrates so deeply, because it
has about five limes lhe strength of
the ordinary oily preparation, it has
come to be known as King over all
Pain. Tor Rheumatic conditions,
musuclar and Joint stiffness, Nerviline works wonders. A trial proves
this, (let a 35 cent bottle from your

fore retiring. Rub the creamy,
foamy lather well into tlie tiny
pores. Rinse — and repeat thc
washing. Then rinse again.
Then—if skin is dry—apply a

all. Skin so cared for is not
injured by cosmetics, by
wind and sun, or by dirt.
The simple, correct way

sung "Taps" at the close of their
camping scene, there was not a hitch
or a delay to spoil the delight ot
the audience.
Tho character songs and dances
by the girls were well received und
heartily applauded, but all encores
were refused. A skit by six of the
girls, "Wanted—A General Servant," showed dramatic talent and
was well put on Miss Mildred Lun-
dy was good, as usual, with her
solo dancing.
The only single adult numbers on
the programme wero Miss Doane
and Mrs. Thomns In vocal selections, and Jack Goddurd In imitations with the help of a mouth organ. These three received well deserved   encores.

there followed: "Our Club Will

Thos. Melghan In the new George
Ada Paramount comedy-drama "Woman Proof" wins many new admirers by
the masterly manner In which he interprets the excellent role of Tom
Rookwood. The story was written
for Mr. Melghan by the great American dramatist and humorist George
Ado in hla own delightful humorous
style. The plot hinges on a will disposing of several millions of money
to four heirs on condition that all
marry In a specified time. Three of
the family are prepared for wedding
bells, but the* fourth, a civil engineer,
played by Mi> Melghan, is too busy
with some huge engineering project
that he proposes to finish to a successful Issue. How the Rockwood
family all work to have Tom fall in
love and marry, so the fortune will
not go to an old folks' home, makes
one of) the most loughable and enjoyable comedy-dramas ever penned by
Geo, Ade. A Sunshine comedy and the

night's brilliant and humorous entertainment showing at Hammond Theatre,  Thursday,   Maj   um.

thoy could do und far too little
room in which .to work. Their Btore

where are found very beautifully
finished and perfectly exquisite chet-
tonieres, cheffrobes, buffets, cedar
Chests, dressers, dressing tables,

Almost hundreds nf finished pro-
duds have now gone out to various
parts of British Columbia, the Prairies and to Australia' But, of more
value than tho distance that the products are sent, is their Quality, which
is of Hie highest possible merit.
Nothing but the best quality of

A magnificent audience greeted

of any resident singer Winnipeg has
ever had who could be classed with
him.—Manitoba Free Press.
The visiting soloist, Mr. David
Ross, made a highly favorable Impression. He has a good baritone
voice, excellently cultivated and under perfect control. There ls absa-
lutely no nonsense about Mr. Ross
—none ot those florid effects which
mar so many otherwise good singers.
Good enunciation, pleasing and not
too showy method, perfectly natural

Without any cash deposit al all.
In many cases there are settlers in
lhe same district who are willing to

advantage oi these circumstances it
Is believed ihal tho road will be opened to a considerable number of British and European settlers with a
knowledge of agriculture who find
themselves with little capital at this
The land settlement branch of the
immigration department was recently
organized lo direct new set Hers to
lands where they have lhe best chance
of success, to safeguard Ihem from
exploitation In the purchase price ol
lands and to facilitate the placing of
immigrants of boih sexes in farm employment.
The statement of Hie minister of
Immigration cays that the interest ot
the land settlement branch will not
terminate when tho settler Is satisfactorily located, but the branch will
continue to exercise friendly assistance as long as 11 Is needed. II Is
particularly emphasized that the scope
or the branch extends to all Canada,
not merely to Western Canada.
One peculiar problem confronting the land settlement branch Is the
disposition of settlers so that they
may have the benefit of community
life with people of Ihelr own tongue
and race and Yet to diffuse European
settlers In such a way as to secure
their absorption into Canadian life
and Ihelr understanding of the Canadian point of view.
The branch i.s listing lands available for sale and advisory settlement
boards are being formed In many districts to pass on the suitability of the
lands and assist lhe department in
fixing a fair price for them. These
boards also wil promote community
welfare work, Irving lo prevent the
oversettling of any particular district
and to provide a helpful medium lor
"Through tho branch's field staff
special impetus will be given to community welfare organization," says
Mr. Robb's statement, "and every endeavor will be nude to extend to lhe
new land settlers not only a friendly
welcome, but practical guidance in
initial operations to overcome Hie inevitable difficulties awailing lhe newcomer. This guidance and direction
will be continued so long as it is
found necessary. It is lo be a real
ser/ico organisation, permeated with
a desire lo assist Ihe incoming settler
and lo make him, as speedily as possible, Inlo u prosperous Canadian citizen. Permanency of settlement of
lhe Immigrant is the keystone of lhe
The land settlement branch recently formed will be a new factor In tlie
solution, of farm employment problems. The branch will make a survey of farm labor requirements and
seek to meol those by placing Immigrants as well as directing the settlement of Immigrants Who wish to take
up their own farms on arrival.
Field officers of the land settle-
mint branch will seek to place to ihe
best advantage all Immigrant laborers, and an linmeillale Result of initial surveys hy lho branch Is that it
has more applications from Canadian
farmers for labori is lhan it ls able at
present lo supply.
The branch will see partloulasly to
placing advantageously those who
come to Canada under Ihe nominated
passage scheme. A considerable
movement of Britishers to Canadian
farms is anticipated wil hin lhe next
six weeks. There is nlso in evidence
a considerable Immigration from the

Chinese are able to produce at

in China is very cheap. The average
wage rate for a full-grown male laborer is 30 sen, for a female 25 sen,
and a child draws 15 sen. In spite
of such ludicrously low remuneration,
they can develop at least 60 per cent,
of the efficiency of Japanese labor.
China's disadvantage lie* In tho
high rale of interest which is due

which makes speculation In some

WEDNESDAY,  MAY   7,  nn
At tho recent Provincial Convention
of the Women's Institutes °( B.C. a
resolution was passed \hy an overwhelming majority in favor of urR-
Ing upon tho Provincial Government
tho necessity of bringing into force
some form of state medicine or of a
state health, Insurance scheme. Dr.
Lyle Telford, chairman of the State
Health Insurance Committee or the
Provincial Medical Association, spoke
for the resolution, making a powerful
appeal to the women of the country
fo;- their support both on Its practical merits and its humanitarian principles. His efforts were rewarded
by the above mentioned satisfactory
results. This resolution was an ol
old friend to some of the Institute
members, having been ,bcfo:« the general meeting of the Lower Mainland
Jn the autumn of 1922 and again In
1023. On both occasions It was laid
on the table, the delegates with few
exceptions saying "What the measure
was a new one and little known to
them, and that before sending It
to the Government they would like to
know more about it. This, under the
circumstances, Is always a wise decision. Since then the matter has become more widely known. One rarely glances through a loading paper
without seeing some reference, or well
written article on the subject—almost
invariably strongly in favor of It.
Fnom some of these, this article
quotes in explanation to the general
publllc, if explanation be still needed.
The whole matter stands exactly as
was put in the resolution, namely,
that the Government off. B.C. place an
Individual tax or health Insurance on
all adults, that would be paid into a
Government fund, which would give
to all men, women and children free
hospitals, nurses, medical attendance
of all Winds, and also the benefit of X
nay  and  other  scientific  treatments.
Those who have gone very carefully
Into these things and back their arguments with statistics, say that ft
would not be a very high tax. People
as a matter" of fact, are usually well,
even a small universal tax flowing
constantly from the whole population
of British Columbia would surely be
sufficient to care for all the sick of
the country and ca:fc for them In a
way they have never been cared for
before. Dr. Young, provincial health
officer for B.C. and secretary for the
F».ov*lsclal Board of Health, ln an ad.
dress at the annual meeting, suggested as a remedy for problems facing
tlie Vancouver General Hospital, the
im|>osition of a health tax as a premium for ptate health Insurance,
stating that the public, for the most
part, does not get the care it shoult
from the standpoint of health becaust
of the cost. He contended that the
remedy lay in state health insurance.
One premium, he averred, would do
for each family und entitle any member, in case of sickness, to freo caro
and hospital treatment. Dr. C. s. War
iren, Surgeon United States Health
Service, says "It Is; a significant fact
that no country that has enacted sickness Inhurance laws has ever repealed
them, but, instead, many countries
have broadened and strengthened
thcrr(." Those1 who have had the benefits of the health system of Gr*at
Britain, both patients and physicians,
would not willingly return to the old
system. Dr, Carr, medical secretary
<if the British Medical Association,
stated confidently not one Doctor In
ono thousand, who is doing nations)
Health Issurance work, would willingly go back to the old system. Of the
present system of caring for the sick
il Is batwly necessary to hpeak to
prove the case. The rich, of course,
can care for themselves; the utterly
destitute the'Government and Municipalities care fori; but what of tho
people between thehe two classes when
severe cases of sickness comes to
their homos? The present system, it
system It can be called, spells only
ruin and desolation to them. Prof,
Fisher, of Yale University, a great
authority on politfcal economy, says
"We conclude that health insurance Jn
tho United States is needed in Ordei
to tide the workers over the grave
emergencies incident to Illness, as well
ns to reduce illness Itself, lengthen
llfo, decrease poverty and Improve
working power. It will not bring tlie
Mfllennum, but there Is no other meos-
urt now before the public which equals the power of State Health Insurance   towards  social  regeneration.
