"Try the Drug Store first"
Another ot British Columbia's
pioneers and an old resident of the
Fraser Valley was called when Elizabeth Ann Whelpton, relict of the
latu Joseph Whelpton died at her
home here at eleven a.m. April 24.
Death w:ih the result of an attack of
pleurisy, an Illness lasting ouly about
a week. Mrs. Whelpton was 79 yeara
and 5 months old and Is survived
(out of olevon children) by two sons
and one daughter, Mr. Fred Whelpton and Mr. Walter Whelpton of Agassis and Mrs. I. Armstrong of Pin-
oher Creek, Alberta. She was born
NovMrtber 23, 1844, at ThornhlU,
12 miles north of Toronto and marred Joseph Whelpton, September 24,
1862. Mrs. Whelpton with her husband and children came to British
Columbia 30 yeara ago, spent a year
In New Westminster, then came to
Agassiz where she bas lived ever
elltce. All her family were born in
ihe East. She had eight brothers and
dlslers of whom three are living, Mr.
T. Q. Ratcllffe of Atwood, Ontario;
Mrs. James Keys of Ontario, and
Mrs. J. A. Calblck of New Westminster, who was with her during ber
Illness, Her grand-daughter, Mrs. I.
L. Coffey, of Port Coquitlam, daughter of the2 late Mrs. 8. R. Ames,
Brookdale, Manitoba, and Mrs. Monty
Oouldlng, daughter-in-law, nursed
her through her Illness. Roy and
Beatrice Whelpton were also present
at the time of her death,
A most Impressive funeral service
was held on Friday last at the home
of Grannie Whelpton which was conducted by the Rev. G. Turpin of (he
Agassiz Methodist church, assisted
by Rev. James Dewar, Agassiz Presbyterian church.
Among the hymns sung was that
beautiful number "Nearer My Ood
to Thee" and also "When the Mists
Are Cleared Away." Miss Eva Horwell, In her usual splendid voice,
sang a very appropriate solo.
Tho Rev. Turpin preached a very
striking sermon using for his text
the passage In Mark "She hath done
what she could." During bis discourse he spoke of "Grannie" as a
very wonderful woman, living an un-
•Dirish life, loved by all who came
in contact with her and always having a pleasant, smile and a good word
for every one. She worked as a real
pioneer has to work.. "She did what
she could," and, many a poor soul
walking the railroad ties and wbo
had been turned down by others
would stop In to see "Grannie," and
vvould always be roll fed and sent
>n his way feellna; a better man. She
'iad, as It were, kept her lamp trimmed and her house In ordnr. Even
:!"ring her Illness she called In Mrs.
!. H. Morrow, president of the Meth-
■vlist ladles' Aid, and paid her some
rule charity s.he remembered having
""nmlsed. At the same time she remarked that she was afraid those
who were nursing her would make
themselves 111 In their ministry. Always thinking of others, "She Did
What She Could."
The service was attended by one
->f the largest gatherings of friends
seen in a long time to pay their last
respects to one of tbe noblest women
'ml loving wife, and a devoted mother. The following is a list ot the

(Published by special Arrangement
with ihe Author)
Descending the southern slope of
the hills, Hhe recollected the directions
she hud written on the piece ol' birch
bark. Half a mile to the south of the
deep decline, and running parallel
with the range of hills from east to
west, ran the Moose Mountain trail,
which was used at that time as the
main highway as far west, as the
Wood Mountains. She determined
to drop her note in the vicinity of this
trail, with the hope that some transient traveller, or search party, would
pick it up. She felt confident now,
after hearing her father's voice, and
an answering call In reply, that by
daylight a rescue party would be on
their trail. Secretly taking the note
from her pocket she awaited her opportunity. As they approached the
trail she slightly retarded the speed
of her horse to escape observation. As
she did so, she quickly dropped it
directly over the trail. Then, turning
her head, she had the satisfaction of
seeing its lighter shade dimly outlined against tlie darker soil of the trail
During the darker hours of the short
June night Ihe cavalcade continued on
its course with a steady lope till the
flrsl. streaks of dawn commenced to
show in the northeast. No slop was
made, nor was there a word spoken,
except an occasional gruff order from
the leader as Ihey covered mile after
mile of open prairie. At dawn a halt
was made at a stretch of prairie, broken by sloughs, around the edges of
which scrub poplars and willows grew.
Here the men watered their horses,
and, dismounting for a time, allowed
then) to graze on the long slougli
grass. Here, also, her escort released her from her bonds and allowed
her to dismount. He gave her a
couple of hard biscuits and a pieee of
dry pemmlcan to eat, and told her
that she was at. liberty lo walk around
within lhe confines of the scrub—a
relaxation which she was In condition
to appreciate after her long ride.
An hour's rest, and Ihe Journey was
resumed. This time the unnecessary
precaution of tying her to the saddle
was not. taken. It was a relief to her
to be thus allowed greater freedom of
Action. Her horse, however, remained hitched to tin' saddle horn of tlie
leader, who evidently considered this
BUfflcient security against her escaping, she having no knife nor other
weapon with which lo cut herself free.
As daylight was now well advanced
she was able lo size up the gang into
wlios.. hands she had fallen prisoner.
The bund consisted of lour men besides lhe leader, Each man led two
horses together with the horse he
himself was riding. Among them
she recognized her father's four
horses. Two of Ihe men were half
breeds and Iwo besides the leader
were whites.     They wero   all   well

armed with revolvers slung tu cartridge bells around the waist. Bach
man had also a rifle slung lo Ills sad-i
die. In appearance they were not j
prepossessing. This was a fact that
offered little encouragement to ilie|
girl in her present plight, should she;
be forced to call ou them for assistance and protection against, the evil j
designs of her immediate escort. Shei
entertained no illusions as to her!
probable fate at his hands, and she
shuddered at Ihe thought of the consequences of thnt fate, should no]
chance of escape open lo her within j
thc next twenty-lour hours. Hen
father's voice calling to her hi the
darkness and Lhe answering hail in re-!
lily gave her a measure of assurance
thai a rescue party would soon be fol-i
lowing close on Ihe trail of the des-1
peradqes. She, however, feared the!
consequences of an open encounter,
between a rescue party and the out- j
laws. Dul, with the optimism of i
youth, and the courage born of her|
western experiences, she determined
to wail and take advantage of such
chances as fate might put in her way.
In her present plight, her case seemed hopeless, but time was in her favor
and she determined to take advantage of the accidents of chance.
Those were the thoughls that oc-i
cupied her mind while travelling the
remaining distance to the Souris River. About mid-forenoon there opened up before them the vista of the
Souris Valley. This valley forms a
depression in the level prairie about
two hundred feet In depth and about
half a mile to a mile wide. It follows
like u river an irregular winding
course from west to east. About two
hundred feet below the prairie level
a stretch of level land a few hundred
yards in width forms tlie bottom of
this valley. This is bounded on both
sides by the steep embankments, rising, in many places, like sheer vertical cliffs from tlie level bottom. This
narrow irregular stretch of bottom
land is broken by the zig-zag windings of a small stream that lazily
winds Its snake-like course, meandor-
ing from side to side within the confines of the deep valley. Tills is tlie
■ Souris River. A small thread-like
stream is all that Is left to remind
t the present time of the once mighty j
j river, whose Irresistible currents
ploughed this wide channel through
j the cretaceous formation that in ages
I past confined It within its deeply
: eroded embankments.
No time was, however, wasted by
j the outlaws In contemplation  of the
scene  that  opened  up  before   Ihem.
! Following along the brow of the hfll
I for a  few hundred yards, lhe riders
[ In the lead turned  lo Hie right and
disappeared down the side of the valley.      A  sleep and  narrow path  led I
I down the decline hy which Ilm horses
| were led  In single (lie.      TiTIs path
followed a  winding course down  the
steep side of tho hill   lo   the   level
ground below.     When they  reached [
, the level bottom land, they again turned sharply In the right along a path
| ihat hugged closely in to the overhanging bank.     This  they   followed
for about a mile, till Ihey came to a
cove,   or   recess,   In   the side ot the
I embankment.       Here   on    a    small
' grassy plot, well protected on all sides
I from    view,    Hie hand halted,      DIs-
i mounting, they tethered their horses
In lhe shelter of the underbrush and
trees, where all seemed  to be familiarly ai home.
The location seemed an  Ideal  plot I
for a  secret camping ground.     The'
I high banks formed a triangular simp-
I I'd enclosure, which In from and along!
j the  sides,  was  well   protected   from,
j view by a heavy growth of scrub pop-j
lars and willows,    it comprised aboul
half an acre of level grafts)' ground, in i
appearance a sheltered grove.   On the
near side nl  llils op'ii  space was a
lent, showing thai  It hail been used
by Ihem nn previous occasions.     This
was   evidently   tlie  secret  lent,   and
ihe spm where Ihey intended to spend
Hie day anil lhe flrsl part of lhe coming nlghl preparatory to making [heir
Intended dash across Ihe International boundary In the early hours of the
next morning.
Regarding their Intentions as to this
she was not leit long in clnubt. For, t
no sooner were the horses disposed of I
anil the two half breeds sent out to
act as sentinels, than the leader, or
"Pete," as lie was called by his associates, came mi m her anil told her
that tlie tenl was reserved for her use.
He suggested that she take a good
rest «nd sleep, as she was going to
have a strenuous day's ride ahead of
For the first time she had a, good
look at her captor, A lace that ill
Its* natural condition would have been
by nn means inviting hor cheering,

his left cheek. This vivid scar gave
his face a sinister expression, which,
added to his li erlng looks. Inspired
her wiih both fear anil apprehensionsI
of his evil designs. li was a lace
thai was by no means expressive of J
humane feelings. His deep penetrating eyes, his firm set square jaws. Ills
compressed lips, expressive of determination and cruelty, gave her little
promise nf sympathy or mercy. Showing ihe first sign of fear nr agitation
since her capture, she exclaimed:
"Whal are you going In do to me?
Where are you taking me? Vou know
.'nn have no rlgln in trenl mo like tills,
Why do you nut lei me go back home?
Are you not saliselled wllh lhe theft
nf our horses? Why do you want to
add lo horse stealing lhe crime oT
kidnapping and perhaps murder? For
1 swear to you, if you attempt tn harm
me in any way, either you or I shall
die In lhe attempt."
'Ah," he.said, "you have some spll
fire in you, eh? I have busied
bronchos lhat have killed broncho
busters, and If 1 have1 to I'll bust you
and lame you lo do what I want you
to do. You'll have to change your
mind on that flghtin' stunt my young
'un. he sensible, and cut out the
fight In' stunt, my young 'un. and you'll
come to no harm. / You slay around
that tent like a good young 'un and
you'll get no hurl."
Assured to the extent that no immediate harm threatened her she retired to the tent, and remained there
during Hie entire morning till late
afternoon. The day's proceedings
were unevontful. While she remained within the tent the greater pari of
the day, she none the less kept a
sharp lookout on all their doings and
movements. She was conscious of
lhe fact that, while she was apparently free to move about, the leader kept
a strict watch upon all her movements. The three men, and particularly the leader, remained In close
proximity to her during the entire day.
With the object of diverting suspicion and causing them to relax their
vigilance, she assumed nn air of indifference as to their movements and
her surroundings.
She was convinced that any plan of
escape would have to be carried out
during the few hours of darkness before a start was made in Hie early
morning. Towards evening she came
nut of Hie tent with the object of sizing up her surroundings nnd take mental note of the lie of the land. The
sheer steepness of Hie embankment
prevented all possibilities to escape to
the rear. The only avenue open so
far as the nalure of the ground permuted was to the front Into the open
valley, or along both sides through
the brush along the foot of the hills.
But escape in either of these directions was pretty well cut off by the
men, who kept strict guard over her
and whom she would have to pass in
making an attempt to escape by that
way. After taking a stroll around
the tent and Its vicinity, she sat down
on the grass in front to think out her
plans. The only feasible way of escape rested on her hopes of being able
to slip away in the darkness, and, by
hiding In tho underbrush, remain concealed there, and await the coming of
a search party. Indefinite as her
scheme seemed lo be, she decided to
take advantage of such chances as the
darkness of night would offer. She
knew that the lender of the gang was
lhe only one o( the men who was
aware of her sex. as during the day
she had overheard the oilier men referring lo her as "the boy." Conscious ol this fact she surmised that
it was his design to keep her identity
In this respect a secret from his companions, hi order to succeed In this,
she concluded that he would devise
mailers so lhat they would be kept at
a distance from her.

In the/early twlllghl she arose from
her reclining position nn Hie grass,
and assuming an air of Indifference,
she sauntered round to the rear of the
tenl. As she did so, her font struck
against a small boulder stone, which;
as if acllngjin inspiration, she secretly slipped with her toe under the fold
of the lent. She had a weapon of
defense, and she conceived lhe no-
liun that this primitive weapon might
serve a useful purpose if forced lo
put up a light. Entering the lent a
lew minutes later, she eagerly picked
up and concealed this small rock under Ihe illicit grass within. Then she
calmly eat of the biscuits and pemmlcan wllh which she had been provided.
As night was falling lhe two men
who had been sent as oul posts, re*
turned to camp and reported lhat all
was clear, and no sign of anyone In
the vicinity. As they were now under the protection of darkness, they
took their horses and watered them
In the river nearby, and then tethered them on.the grass on the more
open ground. When this was done
the men made preparations for lhe
night's camping. Blankets were produced from packs and spread, and
saddles arranged for pillows. She
noted with satisfaction that they arranged their beds towards the farther
outskirts of the grassy plot, about
forty yards away from the tent. The
leader, however, did not join in these
preparations. After the rest of the
men had ararnged their beds, h e picked up his saddle and pack and brought
them towards the tent. He deposited
Ihem in front, and, taking out a blanket, he passed it into the tent and
Skid, "Here, take this blanket and
have a good sleep, for you are going
to have a long ride tomorrow. We
are to start before daylight." He then
spread his own blanket on the ground
In front, and sat down reclining
against the saddle. It was evident
to her now that It was his intention
to keep guard over her himself during the night. It was a matter of infinite relief to her, however, that he
did not take the precaution to bind
her up as added security, against escape. To that extent Providence seemed to favor her.

High Price_of Whisky
Milk Said to be Taking the Place of
Hard  Drinks  in  Glasgow
Milk is hiking lhe place of whisky
as u workman's beverage In such an
extent lhat Glasgow publicans are
gradually transferring to the milk
business. The principal reason for
lhe change Is said lo be the high price
ol whisky, workmen being unable to
afford lb' pence for a drink.
Some years ago publicans paid from

Getting Back to Peace
A Difficult Task to Get the World Back
to Peace Basis ■
Lord Cecil is authority for the
statement that there are now 3,750,-
000 men under arms in Europe, and
that this number is only one hundred thousand less than there, were
before the great war began. And
over against the fact of this slight
reduction is to be placed the other
fact that there are behind these men
actually In uniform many millions ot
trained and demobilized soldiers. The
task of getting this old world to carry
on on a peace basis seems a tremendously difficult one, and yet we must
keep working away at It. The folly
of the present situation is surely evident lo every one.—Christian Guardian.

Minard's Liniment for Sprains BYRON
April   10th,   I8*i4-I!)34
Bettor known as Primrose Day that
;is thi' date <>f Byron's death. Byron's
nitty Ik> -said iu have been tlie fame
• if 11 day. Vol wo would not hide the
fact thai fifteen towns in America
lire iLuiiu'il after him.
Byron was famous, is still ftunnus
Inn  his fame does not oome tu him
nny lougei* from his poetry.   He continues on (he world's stage us u dead
hero.      Did  he not  brand his wife?
brand every woman who descends to
counting the cost of teu and sugar as
"mathematical?"   He continues to be
picturesque.      Did     he    not    brand
Wordsworth as the hero of his own
piece—"The tdiot Boy?" wound Keats
to death by his sarcasm of Keats' pretension to poetry?    lie was n powe**
in  his*day  for the world waited oi
him and on his next word:    He wn
unique in that he was "a hero lo hi;
valet" for he could flp.it.   Was he no'
u sparring partner of champion John
Jackson?    He could stay in tbe water.
Did   be   not   swim   the   HellespontV
He was a gentleman.   Did he not for
years refuse io take a penny for the
writings of his brain?   And was be
not the idol of the day? the lover of
the day? the stylist of tbe day? the
poet, of the day?   And a peer of the
realm!    To be sure be wns all that
and more.   Where is he now, in 1924?
His   anniversary  will  bring  along
un   enormous   amount   of   criticism
but it will not place him high in l'nr-
nnssian circles.    Year by year, Byron
has gone back and today his place in
literature is negligible.     But for his
Kpectacular   career   we  doubt  if  his
anniversary would be celebrated outside of London.
What then holds him to his fame?
Partly scandal; but it is to be hoped
that today, a century after Misso
longhi, there will be no revival of
scandal. Partly because he is the
least Provincial or insular of all poets.
He is European and yet his early up-
. bringing was in Aberdeen, that city
where every schoolboy believes "take
away Aberdeen and twelve miles
round and where are you?"
For a time Spain claimed him, then
Greece. France had a part in him
and today Germany would gladly acclaim for him high place in her Valhalla ; but old England demands trial
by test. She demands to know the
"best sellers." She demands to judge
by the writer's or the poet's influence
on contemporary literature. She
watches with critical eye and has ears
open for tlie most quoted, the most
parodied. She watches for the contents of each new-appearing Golden
Treasury. Then she weighs and
measures and shifts the seats on Parnassus around, according to test,
By that analysis, Byron has been
moved down ond down until today,
Southey, who has been forgotten except for his lyrics, sits beside him
while Keats, Shelly, Wordsworth,
Burns and even Wulter Scott look
down on him from seats higher up
nnd probably wonder at fickle time.
For did not Scott acclaim him as tbe
greatest of all poets—did not Shelly
sit at his feet on earth; Keats weep
that Byron would not condescend to
see him in Home; Wordsworth believed himself an idiot since Byron
dubbed him an idiot?
Alas! All, nearly all, even Leigh
Hunt, poor, dilettante Hunt; Tom
Moore, beside those we have mimed
of his contemporaries are read and
Byron neglected or nearly neglected.
What, is the reason for the downfall? It is bard to explain from any
point, of view, for Byron is full of
beautiful verse and of original
thought. His "Don Juan" in parts is
sublime. His "Beppo." "Vision of
Judgment," his "Hebrew Melodies."
in every line, are perfect art. His
"I.ochnngar" as a song is a classic.
Some of the short poems delight. But
he lacks in reverence and In power
to console. Burns will live by his
power to console although he too
lacks in reverence. So it is hard to
have Byron condemned for that alone.
Autobiography In ShakesfAarc is actually hunted for with a microscope
and devoutly cherished, but Byron has
been put out of place and' abused because he has too much of It scattered
through his work, Indeed the critics
say that it Is therein he falls down.
The fact eunnot~be overlooked. His
work is often labored to show himself a hero and history declares that
he does not always tell tbe truth.
To believe him, tbe "Corsolr" in 1H21
made a hern of him.     Today we kimw
he but romanced,
It would be prudish to omtl mention
of the truth lhat for long years Byron was taboo lo young hands. Par
cuts kept him out of sight for w
reason that we can discover today,
That should have helped to make, him
the rage. Anyhow it accounts for
nothing now. it no way accounts i
his lowly place hi literature. Who
then reads Byron V The Harrow
school boys; Cambridge undergrade
Americans who go globe trotting
These are aboul all his audience to
day. It is dittletilt to convinco an
isolated reader of Byron lhat be ]■.■
not read. It is, alas, the solemn
fact. His life was a romance anri
will always make good mutter for
the biographer. His letters are gciml
literature but all ego. Byron wil!
continue to live not for bis poetry hut
for his life. The last phase has not
yet been written although we have
had "the last word." Probably the
anniversary will discover someone
fitted to give the world the last phase
nnd then peace to his ashes.

Then? Is one aspecl of Canada's national position, however, deserving of; home,  mulling Is more efficient than j
the most thoughtful attention of all Canadians Irrespective of Ihelr views In
regard lu fiscal matters.
Eastern manufacturers constantly advance as an argument in support
of their demand for tariff protection that the balance of trade between Canada
and the United States is decidedly against the Dominion and in favor of viie
Republic; that weMtnnually buy millions of dollars worth or goods and supplies from the United States in excess of the amount we export to Ihe soulh,
and that as a result the Canadian dollar is at a discount across Ihe line. And
ibis is perfectly true.
Hut who is responsible for lhe heavy importations from the l'nited
States? Is It the Canadian farmer through his purchases of agricultural implements and other farm Implements? Is it the great body of Canadian consumers Ihrough their purchases of United States clothing, boots, hats, furniture and other articles? Or is il tlie Canadian manufacturer himself who so
persistently urges Ihe greal loss lo Canada because of lhe existing adverse
balance of trade?
A return just tabled in lhe House of Commons contains the answer.
Canada is one or lhe richest countries in Ihe world in coal deposits, yet In
1923 the Dominion Imported 20,417,239 ions of coal from the United Stales
which even at the low figure of five dollars a Ion means over $100^)00,000.
During the same year Canada imported $152,861,567 worth of Iron and Iron
products. Here is a lotal of a quarter of a billion dollars largely for the use
of Canadian manufacturers. On lhe other hand during 1923 our imports of
farm Implements and machinery from Hie United Slates only amounted lo

« The Canadian manufacturer Is blameworthy In thai he has not to anything

followed the lines of least resistance ami gone on Importing raw materials,

Had Canada's manufacturers made use ot'lhe protection afforded ihem

drained oul of lhe Dominion would have been saved to Canada and facilitated

The recent Interchange
sentiments betwqen the Sovereign
and Prime Minister of Ureal Britain
on tht one Bide and the President of
the United Stales on ihe other, of
which Sir Esme Howard was the hied'
him, 'was more lhan the mere formal
■httnge of compliments which transpires whenever a duly accredited Ambassador is received. King George,
speaking with the ndvlsemenl of his
ministers, comes oul openly with the
declaration thai good understanding
between Great llriialn and lhe Unltod
Slates Is Ihe best guarantee of the
peace of the world. President Cool-
Idge declares that the conscious ideality of general alms iu the iwo nations
will be a mighty force in bringing to
the world a just and lasting peace.
To some these utterances may
seem like common-places, because
they huve been made unofficially on
thousand occasions by journalists
and public men in both countries; but
we nre not aware Ihal on any previous
occasion sueli declarations have received the official seal of recognition
by the highest authorities of the two
great Anglo-Saxon powers. Woodrow
Wilson, for, instance, was honorably
zealous for permanent peace, but he
did not admit unity of aims between
Great Britain and the United States.
The sentiments of the King and of a
great majority of the leading slates-
men of Great Britain have undoubtedly lain along these lines for years;
but European considerations have presented so direct an official declaration
of unity or aspiration wllh ihe United
Slates.    „
While couched In lerms of diplomatic courtesy, the words of holh
King and President cannot be otherwise construed than as a notice lo
European peoples that the two most
powerful nations In the world arel
as one In a determination lo opposed
all measures provocative of future
wars. And undoubtedly In both instances these potentates voice the
rooted sentiment of the.better elements among their nations. It is
because popular senllment Is infinite
and based on firm foundations (as
President Coolldge intimates) that
both feci themselves at liberty lo
speak so frankly.
There may be those who hold that
In pronouncing good understanding
between the Anglo-Saxon nations, the
best guarantee of the peace of the
world, the British Government Is unfairly ifnorlng Ihe functions of Ihe
League ot Nations, of which the British community of nations are members, while the l'nited States Is not.
But the declaration Is based on a
sense of realities. Everyone concerned for-the well-being of Ihe human race and the future of civilization

Marie Corelll Is dead at the age of
60. Since 1880 she has held her public In spite of the critics. They would
have crucified her at tho outset of
her novel writing career for without
exception they condemned her first
effort, but Instead of that they made
her. They derided her book, "The
Romance of Two Worlds" and they
declined to believe that any such
being as Marie Corelll existed. It
was, they said, the non-de-plume of
a man. perhaps Hall Calne. No woman could have written the book,
but edition after edition was printed
nnd quickly snapped up while not
a dozen people In England knew the
Then along In the same year came
"Vendetta" to give more pabulum
to the press and to the public.
"DarabbaB," published in 1893
made the world wonder. Clergymen
from the pulpit, had to reaffirm that
Judas and not Judith was the actual
betrayer of Jesus. Mayors and councillors and library committees everywhere disputed whether this author
should not, us to her books, be publicly burned at the market cross, but
common sense prevailed and she waa
allowed to remain in most libraries.
And she certainly was sought after
and read.
But the "Sorrows of Satan," two
years later, revived the controversies
with ten times the energy and longer
faces, only to make Marie Corelli's
fame International and the world her
public. It is a little difficult for us
in these days to take In the attitude
of the press and the long faces ot
only a short generation ago, towards
the novels of Marie Corelll and to
attempt any explanation would require a lecture. Today she is read
with pleasure and we venture to affirm that her vogue will last longer
than did that of Fanny Burney who
in her day also made the vogue.
"The Mighty Atom" published
after the "Sorrows" nearly upset
Miss Corelli's fame. It is a gruesome
tale and not true to life in general.
One reads it shudderingly. Still the
public scrambled for the book and
although for a time banned the libraries, it gradually came to be accepted for Its moral.
Since the beginning of the present century Marie Corelli's public
has dwindled; not exceedingly so,
but gradually. She has still, however,
a large following, mostly of people
who read her before and take pleasure In a second reading.
She hated all men but one: Shakespeare; and to show her admiration
for him she retlrad to Stratford-on-
Avon to live, as she gave out, In
seclusion. The whole world to her
has been an enemy because of the
critics and because of one man's default In some manner never largely
explained. »
She was a musician of note but
never or rarely exhibited her talent
in that art.
Her mother waa of Scottish Highland descent and her father an Italian and she herself may be said now,

Our agent, Mr. 'Graham, and Mr.

On April 22 Mr. and Mrs. J. J.
Mnronoy and daughter left for Vancouver for a few days. They had
quite an experience coming down
the river from Callals', where Mr.
Maroney has charge of a school.
There was quite a gule blowing on
Harrison river. The gasoline boat
that was bringing them down to the
C. P. R. station ran out of gasoline
and, of course, the engine stopped.
They hud no oars, so were at the
mercy of the wind and waves. Tbe
wind took tlium to the other Bide of
the river, where they lauded and got
pules and boards for puddles, and
managed to iross to the Harrison
Bldo. Thoy left Chailals to catch the
ChllHwack ferry to go to Vancouver by that route but did not get to
Harrison Mills till about 1 o'clock,
too late for the ferry. They had to
wuit till 8.20 p.m. and take the Kettle Valley train. If tho government
would complete the Morris Valley
road these folks would be able to
drive to the C. P. R. station at Harrison Mills and save all these
troubles ou the river. Let us hope
the government will rush this roud
through and give these people the
road they have waited bo many
years for.
