C, June _6���One of tin molt satisfactory poet-planting tripe ever undertaken
by a good raids association in Western
America was completed at nine o'clock
Thursday night, when the ertw of Vie*

the Canadian Highway from Nanaimo
to Aebernl, reached here and placed the
last post In position at the present farthest north point which can be reached
by road on Vancouver Island,
A. E. Todd, president of the Automobile Club was in charge of the post-
planting crew, and had as lieutenants
Messrs. George Helloy, P. Bannerman
and H. 0. Kirkham. Each of these
gentlemen drove his own car, and was
accompanied by a party of friends. In
all, well over three hundred miles of
road will have been travelled by the time
the crew returns to Victoria, and one

An important question has been settled by this marking of the Island roads;
that is whether the Canadian Highway
signB will have precedence over the
Island Highway signs. It was finally
decided that inasmuch as the Canadian
Highway was a national road, and the
Island Highway a local stretch, it would
be best to have the National sign above
the Island board. This rule will be followed throughout Canada, now that a
precedent has been set by Vancouver

Citizens of Chase Will Decide Where
They Want Government Money
Expended On the Streets,
There will be a mass meeting of the
residents of Chase at the Chase Opera
House Monday evening, July 8th at 7:80
All ratepayers are earnestly requested to be present. The question of building streets within the town limits will
be discussed and some agreement reached so that the government engineers
may be notified and the work begun ss
Boon as possible.
There is $1460 available for the purpose of improving the streets of this
town. That is the amount set aside for
Chase this year. It is not very much
money when the amount of necessary
work is taken into consideration. But
it is all there is.andthat being the case
it is up to the people of Chase to make
the best possible use of the money.
There seems to be a strong sentiment
to the effect that a start should be
made on the road leading to the government wharf.   Engineer Ford sort of dis-
j take them back to the boat. The Notch
Hill people know a good thing and like
to hold on to it.
The boys finally made good their
escape, however, in the dim light of the
next mornigg they might have been
seen Btealing away through the mud in
mournful procession, packing their instruments and saying a few things now
and then.
Band Master Jimmy Allen says never
any more for his. He likes to see people appreciate his music, but the long
walk doesn't appeal to him.
Barnes' Topsy.
The Topsy, that's the name of the
new Barnes launch. Probably he calls
her that because she "jest growed
She is a dandy little boat at that, even
if she is a foundling. She glides through
the water like croton oil through the
alimentary canal. She was formerly
the Gipsy and was owned by the A. R.
L. Co. She was turned adrift last fall,
a derelict, her term of usefulness served to all intents and purposes.
But Mr. W. F. Barries, boatbuilder
and contractor, is a devout believer in
the theory of the transmigration of Bouls.
He rescued the little Gipsy, scraped the
rouge from her cheeks and the tinsel
from her body. H? round beneath a
heart of oak. He ought her some
new clothes and calleu her Topsy. And
now she laughs her gasoliney laugh
as she pokes her pretty little nose
through the waters. She will carry a
dozen people without Mr. Barnes.
With him on board she will carry two

He advised that a temporary road be
built and that Shuswap avenue be not
opened at present.
But the residents of that section of
the town beneath the hill want a road.
Also, the business men having interests
along Shuswap avenue are anxious that
the street be made a good one from the
depot clear to the lake.
The ratepayers of the town will be
asked to decide the matter Monday
K. P. Install Officers.
At the last regular convention of
Chase Lodge No. 47 Knights of Pythias
held on Tuesday evening July 2nd, the
officers for the ensuing semi-annual
term Were installed by D. G. C. Bro,
S. P.Bradley assisted by P. C. Bro. W,
Scatchard acting as G. M. at A. and
P. C. Bro. C. L. Barker, acting aa G.
P. During the evening the outgoing
C. C. L. Cumming was presented with
a P. C. jewel by the members of the
lodge, in token of their appreciation of
hia services to the lodge.
Residents and Property Owners Have
Not Been Slow to
the Great Abvertising
Merits of Same.
What does that Special Edition of The
Cliase Tribune mean to you? Have you
stopped to consider!
Perhaps it means more than you
know 1 It means a great deal to every
citisen and property owner of Chase. It
means that the people of the outside
world will know that there is such a
town as Chase, even if it is not on the
map yet. It means that the value of
every dollar's worth of property in the
vicinity of Chase and the Shuswap and
Adams Lakes will be enhanced to a
most appreciable extent.
The Special Edition will tell all there
is to tell about this country if it can. It
will be filled with pictures that will
make* even our own home folks sit up
and take notice.- Besides actual photographs, there will be cartoons by that
master hand, Howard Smith. He has
promised to draw |a funny picture of
almost everybody in town. It would be
a shame to be left out in a case of that
There will be a story of the town and
the adjancent county.   It will be writ-
co-raged the proposition a short time ten with a vie,w- to giving the outsider i^_i._     "\      i     1

It stands for and what its advantages
and possibillities are. The story will be
illustrated to a fare-thee-well. Those
who are unable to read will at least be
able to gleam the story from the pictures.
And right here, gentle reader, we ask
you again: What does the Special
Edition mean to you? We'll tell you!
It means tbat you are going to have a
bright and shining opportunity to do
something for your town and at the
same time do something for yourself.
Perhaps you have wanted do It for lo
these many yean. But you have never
got to it. It ii a delicate task to go
about, Isn't it? And yet you want to
let the folks tn the old home town
knbw when you are and how you are
prospering, don't you?
That is where the Special Edition of
The Chase Tribune will come to your
aid. You couldn't sit down and write
a letter home and say one half the nice
things about your town and yourself
tha' will be said in that Special Edition
of The Tribune. It wouldn't seem right,
coming from you. But it will Bound
mighty fine to those friends of yours
back there who have often wondered
just what sort of a fellow you have
grown up to be. And when they pick
up a copy of that Special Edition and
read all about the marvelous growth of
the latest live town in B.C.; when they
read about the wonderful resources yet
to be developed in this section; and
when they see the picture of little old
Jimmy Brown mixed right in with the
men of affairs of this great country-
well' .you know what it will mean to
old home town will instinctively get the
estimate of you that you have long
wanted them to get, but modesty prevented.
This Special Edition of The Tribune
Ib not a money making proposition,
Far from it. If we break even on it we
will do mighty well. And yet we will
have to raise a little revenue from some
source or other. We don't want one
side of the ledger to outweigh the other
too heavily���unless it is the right side.
Home Cooking Sale.
The Ladies Aid Society will hold another home cooking sale at Miners
Store On the afternoon of Saturday,
July 6. This will b; the biggest sale
yet held and those who want table delicacies for Sunday should not fail to
take advantage of the opportunity.
Mrs. Lammers Gone.
Mrs. Walter Lammers and little son,
Bubbles, are visiting at Stillwater, Minnesota and St. Paul. They were accompanied as far as Sicamous by Mr.
Lammers. And in connection with the
family's departure there is said to be a
joke. A section had been reserved on
the early morning train last Friday,
that train being the only one carrying
a through car for St Paul. Mr. Lammers made all arrangements for getting up early in the morning. He had
the alarm clock placed at the head of
his bed upon the upturned bottom of a
dishpan; he had it arranged for the
mill whistle to be blown; he had two
men to call him; and he had an automatic collapsible device attached to his
bed. But all to no avail. The Lammers family reposed in sweet and silent contentment while the train rattled
by. Several hours later they awakened,
and Mrs. Lammers made the overland
trip on the Limited, which is faster,
but does not go to St, Paul.
W. L. Fernie in Chase.
W. L. Fernie, chief of the provincial
police of Kamloops, was a visitor in
Chase last Saturday. He was accompanied by his wife and little son. Mr.'
Fernie was here on official business,
principally in connection with the erection of the gaol and courtroom. Also,
he made enquiries concerning the granting of a new license in Chase. Upon
his report will depend largely the fina'
action of the commissioners.
Serious Accident.
A serious accident happened on Sunday morning last, to a party of four
men and two boys, out on a pleasure
trip. They left Vernon by automobile
for Kamloops. About four miles south
east of Ducks, the wheels skidded and
with great force came into contact with
some obstacle, causing it to turn turtle,
imprisoning its occupants. A boy of
13 years of age was killed and two men
injured, one seriouily. It was sometime before the imprisoned men, could
be released, the car being a heavy one.
The body of the deased lad was taken
back to Vernon the same night.
A party of Chase people will go to
Celista tonight on the Old Reliable to
attend another one of those Old Timer
Do not fail to attend the Home Cooking Sale at Miners Store on Satur^y
afternoon. The Ladies Aid Society will
have some delicacies for your Sunday
After The First.
Those who had "a time and a half"
on the First of July, either at home or
abroad are advised that the singing of
the following may ease their feelings
largely. It is the national anthem of
Siam and is executed to the tune of
"God Save theKing." Try It:
Ova tannas Siam
Geeva tanna Siam
Ova tannas
Sucha tammas Siam
Inocan giffa tarn
Osucha nas Siam
Osheha nas.
Hedley V. Harbing of Louis Creek
was a visitor in Chase one day last week.
. Larry Taylor was among those who
attended the' festivities at Armstrong
on the First of July. Larry stuck pins
in the elephants and otherwise had a
perfectly excruttating time of it.
Mr. E. Scott, recently of England,
was a visitor in Chase the first of the
week. He is making his first tour of
Canada and has visited at a number of
summer resorts. He paid quite a compliment to Chase in stating that the
scenery here excelled anything he has
yet come across.
Misses Gladys and Lois Underwood
have returned from thier school at
Kamloops and will spent the summer
vacation in Chase with their parents.
Mrs. Underwood and Marjorie went to
Kamloops Friday and accompanied
them home.
B. W. Sawyer took a party of friends
up the lake in the Tillicumone day last
week. Coming back they encountered
some decidedly rough weather and it became necessary for the women and
children to take to the lockers for protection from the elements. In the party
were Mr. and Mrs. Sawyer, Mrs. Haylock, Miss Barnes and Miss O'Sullivan.
Miss Annie Gilford, principal of Longfellow school, Seattle, and Miss Letta
Nason, also a teacher of Seattle, have
been spending a few days with their
friend Mrs. E. E. Brooks. On their
way up they stopped for a couple of
days at Vancouver. They left Chase
last evening for their old homes in Iowa
and Wisconsin, and will take in the attractions of Field, Laggan and Banff
in route.
Visits Chase and Upper Lake Country With Party of Capitalists
From the West
Mayor Robinson of Kamloops was a
visitor in Chaae last Friday. With him
were Mr. Nell Murray, manager of the
Arrow Lakes Lumber company and
Messrs. Jackson and Hockey of Seattle.
The party made a trip up the lake in
the steamer C. R. Lamb.
Mr. Robinson is deeply interested in
the development of the Kamloops district. He is one of those broad minded
gentlemen who believe thai the prosperity of the whole district depends upon
the progress of each integral section.
He is not for the aggrandizement of
one particular small locality to the detriment of another. Of course he wants
to see Kamloops prosper. But he does
not want to see Chase remain In a standstill. He feels that as Chase grows so
will Kamloops advance.
Mr. Robinson is president of the Con
serative Association! of Kamloops and is
counted among the strong leaders of the
parte in this section ��f the province.
, An ot'pii gentlei-lii expressed them-
aelvJs as ajjreenblyvsut)pris^L��t. tbe
manner in which Chase has gone ahead
ln the-past two years. And all bf them
predicted great things in store for this
town and district for the very near future.
Morris Stafford, Jim Hughes and
Gerald Bradley were over to Armstrong
and attended the celrbration. They are
wearing their heads on one side since
their return as a result of looking at the
bird man as he soared over their heads.
School Term Closed.
On Friday, June 28th, the public
school closed the second full year of its
history. The kids have had their shoes
taken off and been turned out to grass
for a couple of months, The plant up
at the knowledge factory will not be
in operation again till the laat Monday
in August.
It was on March 1st, 1910 that the
Chase school wss first opened in what
is now the City Reaturant. Its next
resting place was in the Presbyterian
church until it finally took permanent
root in a building of its own, which it
has occupied now for two years.
The year just closed has been the
beat yet in point of attendance, keeping pace with the growth of the town.
It will not be long before another room
will need to be added.
Some good records in attendance and
punctuality were made. There were a
number who were never tardy during
the year. These include Hazel Brooks,
Minnie Chase, Alice Chase, Jean Haldane, Gerald Bradley and Harold Mc-
Alpin. Hazel Brooke has made the unusually creditable record of never having been late for a session since the
school was first opened in 1910.
It is the custom of the Education Department each year toaward three honor
certificates in each room. This year the
award waB: In first division; for pro-
feciency, Herbert Land; for punctuality,
Ethel Loyst; for deportment, Alice
Chase: In second division; for proficiency, Fred Chsse; for punctuality, Lloyd
White; for deportment, Mary Haldane,
Last year the winners in the first division were: Harry Coy, proficiency;
George Grant, punctuality; Jean Haldane deportment. In 1910 the successful ones wete: Roberts White proficiency, Hazel Brooks, punctuality; Jeannie
Grant, deportment.
Next year the first division will be
under new management. Miss McKin-
nell of the second division will remain
for another term.
Chase Doesn't Want That Class of
Gentry and Makes Fact Known
with Emphasis.
There Is no room In Chase for the I.
W. W.-that band of human cattle who
won't work and don't want anyone else
to work. The people of Chaw are industrious; they are law-abiding; and
they are home-loving. They greet the
stranger within their galea with the
utmost cordiality, to long aa he accept*
conditions bore as he finds than. But
the moment he tries to make thing-
over to suit himself, just that moment
will he Und himself very much tn the
bouillon at It were.
All ot which is very much apropos.
One only I. W. W. has lit In Chaae
thus far. He landed right, too. That
means he landed in jail. He it big
and fat and lazy and mouthy and dirty, all
the essentials for the making of a Weary
Willie. He made a bluff at working
down in the mill of the Adams River
Lumber Company, but it was only a
bluff. The sponge in his makeup soon
asserted itself and he began soaking up
our Canadian booze at a rate that made
it look like a possible drouth for some
of us regulars. When the booze began
to talk it sounded like this:
"1 Wont Work, I Want Whisky, I
Wont Wash."
And at just about this stage of the
game Constable McLaughlin applied the
hook. The big tub of trouble Was
tumbled into the ash can and loft to repose in his natural element. Wester-

Central High school team. He eats
'em alive and can spit out a mouthful
of signals any time he wants to. Also,
he can jump high, run fast, dive deep
and do the turkey trot, He is there
with blue bells and buttercups. Better
grease you patties before you handle
him, girls, for he's all to the butterscotch.
Mr. Holden will remain in Chase
about a month, during which time he
will give the Adams River Lumber
Company the benefit of his services as
much as possible. He is also making a ,
Btudy of phrenology, tor which purpose

obligingly had his noodle shorn.
On his return to old Spokane Mr. Holden will go via Seattle, Vancouver,
Victoria and Portland. Mr. McGoldrick
will accompany him to Portland. After
biting eacb other good-bye at Portland,
Mr. Holden will beat it back to Spokane

|T etui lacked nearly an hour
of the appointed time when
Howland came to the secluded spot ln tbe trail where be
waa to meet Meleese. Concealed la
the deep shadows of the bushes he
seated blmseit on tbe end of a fallen
spruce and loaded hla pipe, taking care
to light it wttn: tbe Mere of the match
bidden ln the bubow of his bands.
His blood waa tlugllng at fever heat
ln his desire for vengeance for the
punishment ot tbe human fiends who
bad attempted to blow bim to atoms,
and yet at the same time tbere was no
bitterness In him toward tbe girl. He
wae sure tbat sbe was an uu willing
factor ln tbe plot and tbnt she was
doing all in ber power to save bim. At
the same time he began to realise tbat
be sbould no louger be Influenced by
her pleading He hud promised���ln return for ber conlideuee this night���to
leave unpunished those whotn ahe
wished to shield. Ue would take back
that promise. Before sbe revealed anything to bim be would warn ber that
be was determined to discover those
who bad twice sought to kill him.
It was nearly midnight wben be
looked st bis nntcb again. Was it
possible tbat Meleese would not come'/
He could not bnug bimself to believe
that ahe knew ot his Imprisonment In
the coyote���of this second attempt on
his life.   And yet it sbe did���
Suddenly be beard a step, a light running atep. and with a recognising cry
he sprang out into, tbe starlight to
meet tbe slim, panting, white fsced
figure that ran to bim from between
the thick walls of forest trees.
"Meleese!" be exclaimed softly.
He beld out ni�� arms and tbe girl
ran straight tnto tbem. thrusting her
hands Against bis breast, throwing
back b* bead A that she looked np
Into by fsce wljb great, >tarin^ horror ailed eyes.
"Now���now." she sobbed, "now will
you gof"
Her hands left bis breast and crept
to hla shoulders. Slowly they slipped
over them, and as Howlsnd pressed
her closer, bis lips silent, she gave an
agonised cry snd dropped her bead
against his shoulder, her whole body
torn ln a convulsion of grief and terror that startled bim.
"You will go?" sbe Bobbed again
and again. "Tou will go-you will
He ran bis fingers through ber soft
balr, crushing hla face close to hers.
"No: 1 am not going, dear," be replied ln a low. firm voice, "not after
what happened tonight"
Sbe drew away from bim as quickly
as If he bad struck ber. freeing her
self even from tbe touch of his bauds.
"1 beard wbat happened a. bour
ago." sbe said, ber voice choklug ber.
"1 overheard tbem talking." She
struggled bard to control herself.
"You mnst leave the camp tonight."
In the gloom sbe saw Howland's
teeth gleaming. There wss no fear
In-bis smile. He laughed gently down
Into ber eyea as be took ber face between bis hands again.
"I' want to take back the promise
thst I gave you lest night. Meleese.
I WBnt to give you a chance to warn
any whom you may wlsb to warn. I
shall nor return Into tbe south. From
this hour begins tbe bunt for the cowardly devils who bave tried to murder
me. Before dawn every man on tbe
Wekusko will he ln tbe search, and if
we find tbem tbere shall be no mercy.
Will yon belp me. or"���
She struck bis hands from ber face,
springing bsck before be bad finished.
He saw a sudden change of expression.
Her lips grew tense and firm From
the death whiteness of ber fsce there
faded slowly away tbe look of soft
pleading, tbe quivering lines of fear.
Tbere was a strangeness ln ber voice
when sbe spoke���something of tbe bard
determination wbicb Howland had put
tn bis own. sod yet tbe tone of It lack
ed his gentleness and love.
"Will you please tell me tbe time?"
The question waB almost startling.
Howland beld the dial of his watch to
the light of the stars.
"It is a qiiorter past midnight"
Tbe faintest shadow of a smile passed over the girl'n lips.
"Are you certain that your watcb ts
not fast?" sbe asked. >
In speechless bewilderment Howland
stared at ber.
"Because tt will mean a great deal to
you and to me If It ls not a quarter
past midnight" continued Meleese. a
growing glow in ber eyea. Suddenly
sbe approached bim and put both of
ber warm bands to his face, holding
down bis arms witb ber own. "Listen." she whispered. "Is there nothing-nothing that will make you
change your purpose, that will take
you back Into the south-tonight?"
The nearness of the sweet face, tbe
gentle touch of tbe girl's hands, the
soft breath of ber lips, sent a madden-
In. Impulse through Howland to Sur
render everything to her.   "Wor aa In- j
stunt be wavered.
���There might he one. lost one. thing
that would take me away tonight" \
he replied, hla voice trembling with
the great love tbat thrilled hla. "For I
yon, Meleese. I would give up'every-
thlng-smbltlon. fortune, the building
of thle road. If I go tonight will yon
go with me? Will yon promise to be
my wife wben we reach Le Past"
A look ot ineffable teoderneao came
Into the beautiful eyea eo near to hla
"That l> Impossible. Yon wtll not

For a moment her eyes faltered,
tben hesitatingly there fell from her
lips: "l-dont- know. I believe 1 bave
Bit it's not thot-lt'e not that"
"Do you mean mat-that 1 have no
right to tell you I love yonr he asked. "Do you mean that It la wrong
tor yon to listen lo me? 1-1-took tt

"No. no; It Is not that!" she cried
qnlckly. catching bis meaning. "It la
not wrong for you to love me." Suddenly ebe asked again. "Will yon
please tell me wbat time It Is���now?"
He looked again.
"Twenty-five minutes after midnight."
"Let us go farther np the trail,'' she
whispered.   "1 am afraid bene."
She led the way. passing swiftly beyond the path tbat branched out to
his cabin. Two hundred yards beyond
this a tree bad fallen on tbe edge ot
the trail, and, seating herself nn it.
Meleese motioned for him to sit down
beside ber. Howland's back was to
tbe thick bnsbes behind tbem. He
looked at tbe girl, hut sbe bad turned
away ber face. Suddenly sbe sprang
from tbe log and stood In front ot
"Now," she cried; "now!" And at
that signal Howland's arms were seised from behind, and tn another Instant
be was struggling feebly ln tbe grip of
powerful arms which had fastened
themselves about him like wire cable,
and tbe cry thai rase to his lips was
throttled by a band over bis month.
For an Instant be caught a glimpse of
tbe girl's white face as sbe stood In
tbe trail; then strong hands pulled him
bsck, while others bound bis wrists
and still others beld his legs. Everything bad passed In a few seconds
Helplessly bound nnd gagged, he lay on
his back In the snow, listening to the
low voices that came faintly to bim
from beyond tbe bushes. He could
understand nothing that they said, and
yet be wag sure tbat be recognized
among them the voice of Meleese.

In these moments tbat be lay on his
back in the freesing snow a million demons were born ln bla blood. The girl
bad betrayed him again. This time be
could find no excuse���no pardon for
ber. Sbe had accepted his love, had
allowed him to kiss ber, to hold her lo
bla arms, while beneath tbat hypocrisy
she had plotted bis downfall a second
time. Deliberately sbe bed given the

Dear Blsa-Kver since Lent began.!
have bad tbe time ot my Ufa dressmaking-that is, making np little
frocks for tbe summer tbat are so ex*
pensive to bave made out of the bouse
by a really good woman. Now that
the width ot skirts bas been definitely
settled It la parrot-try safe to begin oa
one's summer wardrobe, although we
are shivering with cold here In ou
New York upartnient And tbe sleeve
question-that too. la definitely fixed
as far aa the passing of the kimono,
effect la concerned, which Is decidedly
de mode. And. by tbe way, 1 am altering all my last year's kimono sleeves
by cutting them off about three or tour
laches from what would be a legitimate aboulder seaui and at this point
attaching a puffed lower sleeve a trifle
below tbe elbow or a long straight
sleeve on morning frocks.
To bring about the now fashionable
tunic effect on a last year's pink linen one piece frock waa a simple affair. Fortunately I had some of the
Unen left, and witb it 1 made u band
about four luebes deep to tit about the
skirt The lower edge of this strip 1
scalloped und bound with white wash
eoutucbe braid. The baud was theli
placed on tbe skirt about rive luebes
above the kuees and a little longer ln
the back. The up| or edge wus simply
turned In and stin-hed In place. Tbe
sblrt waist front was seulloped; also
the edges ot tbe long tight sleeves. A
black patent leather belt and n wide
sailor collar of eyelet embroidery completed a mlgbty smart looking frock.
Tbe neck ls slightly low. So I am going to wear a black velvet bow at tbe
throat opening.
Turkish toweling, that bas been to
mucb exploited In fashion talks, Is
now being taken up as a dress material for entire gov-ns, and 1 am sure
you will be Interested In hearing about
the toweling gown thst 1 have just
finished making.
It is of pale lilac mixed with white,
an exact duplicate of the regular

skirt has three narrow plaits Inserted
In the middle of the front running up

piece of violet embroidery on heavy
white linen. ,
This embroidery Is also used on
sleeves at the elbow, where It Is finished with a turnover cuff. The frock
fastens up the front with white crochet buttons, and tbere are a V shaped
yoke and a stock of white wash net
A Leap Yeer Perty.
Since tbe new year began there
have been lots of leap year parties
among hostesses of my acquaintance.
Perhaps tbe most amusing feature ot
a recent Jolly affair was tbe proposal
contest In this the men were seated
around the room at Intervals, aud the
girls progressed iihout the circle, euch
girl making a mock proposal of mar
rlage to each man. Each girl employed ber own methods ot persuasion
by kneeling to ber adored one or by
taking bis band or walking off witb
him to a corner or by sitting by bis
side or writing bim a note. Tbere
waa only three minutes' time for tbe
girl to put the question before going
on to tbe next victim. The man was
allowed to accept or refuse. When
the circle was completed eacb man
wrote on a slip ot paper tbe name ot
the girl whose proposal seemed.tn bim
the best either the most amusing, tbe
most natural, the most original or tbe
most convincing, and tbe girl wbo got
tbe most votes received a prise. The
girls also voted for the man who received the proposal In tbe best mau*
her. the coyest or tbe most Ingenious.
A variation of this Idea would be to
bave eacb girl propose out loud to
Just one man. with all the others listening, and huve tbe crowd vote on
tbe best proposal made under these
highly embarrassing circumstances.
Wben a buffet supper Is* served ut a
leap year party the girls must take tbe
refreshments to tbelr partners and
keep tbem well supplied with every
thing. The Ice cream should be lo the
form of hearts, nnd the favors may
Include hearts and arrows und tbe rest
of tbe trifles usually associated with
valentine affairs To give u real leap
year atmosphere Cupid may be replaced among the favors with girl
dolls armed with bows and arrows,
und there may be miniature suffragettes. For it very frivolous leap year
party tbe prises might be suffrage car

Hut the incide t should serve to remind those who expect exceedingly
rapid .eelopment in rural South Af-
r'ea that maiv <-f the quaint ideas
of the simple Voortrekkers still cling
to the Veld. The old tyr of Boer
[armers is disappearing before the advance of education. But he is going
slowly. Ii you read the Dutch papers
you will still find very earnest and
very indignant correspondents pro-
testing'that the distraction nf locusts
is a blasphemous attempt to oppose
the will of the Almighty, Who has
sent the scour-re as a punishment for
the sinfulness of the people. You will
still find farmers declaring that the
natural disease of stock should not
be interferred with, and suggesting
that all the Government veterinary
surgeons should be turned out of the
These old farmers were horrified to
hear the godless people in Johnannes-
burg had insulted tbe Almighty by
firing bombs at the sky in time of
drought to endeavor to bring rain.
The Rand Railway was only built
through the subterfuge of calling it a
"tram." Fierce discussions arose on
a proposal to destroy locusts, and
some members were so offended at the
ties affected by their more up-to-date
colleagues that they proposed that the
size and shape of the neckties worn
by legislators should be fined by law.
At one time in Johannesburg
oranges were at famine prices, and an
Oriental trader went out with a cart
to a farm on which there wen many
trees. He offered five shillings a hundred for the fruit, and in order to
keep count, arranged that every hundred oranges planed on the cart he
should put ,a "t.ckey" (a three penny
piece) in the farmer's hat. When the
hat had become about half full of
-tiekeys" the trader purposely looked
away for a few moment. The Boer
did just what the trader expected.
He hurriedly plunged his hand Into
the ' hat and thrust a handful of
"tiekeys" into hi- pocket. And when
the trader paid f r the oranges according to the in:mber of "tiekeys"
in the hat the Bier did not realize
that he had robhed himself of 4s. !)d.
for every "tiekey" he had put into
his pocket.

trader took the precaution of armin;
himself with a ready-reckoner. The
trader worked out the account by a
rorm of mental arithmetic peculiarly
his own.
"But," objected the Boer, puzzled r.t
t' e result, "that is wrong. I have

aH it is different;
The trader paused a moment "Let
me see it," he said, taking the booh.
"Ah!" he exclaimed, "I thought so.
This ready-reckoner is last year's. Ii
Is out of date!"
And the Boer accepted the explana
tion without a suspicion of doubt.
The Boer is given to pilfering store?
when making purchases. But the
traders said nothing. They just kept
a sharp eye on the things taken and
put them down in the bill. A storekeeper told me once that an old Boer
came in one day and ordered a bag
of coffee among other things. While
looking round the store he noticed
several heavy lead pipes, and when
he thought the trader was not looking
he slipped them into the bag of coffee.
The storekeeper made no remark.
When the trading was over he simply
placed the bag on the scales and
weighed it, and charged the Boer for
it at the full price of coffee per pound.
And the coffee in those days was
many times clearer than lead.

When Jack Deserts.
Desertions from the navy are much
le... frequent than in the days of the
press-gangs and pigtails.
When Jack has exceeded his leave
of absence, and has contritely returned to his duties the master-at-arms
takes charge of him, and parades him
with the ordinary defaulters, before
the ship's commander. Sentence r f
what i,i known as "10a" often follows.
This means extra drills, duties and
the stopping of leave.
When, however, Jack is classed a*
a deserter, a court-martial follows his*
recapturo by the civil or naval police.
Ninety days is thp average punishment for desertion, but ir flagrant
cases the sentence is sometimes dou-
ij e I or trebled.
The sentence may be worked out
aboard the ship if away from a home
station, but nn an English coast the
culprit is sent to an ordinary prison.
Here he has to perform hard labor.
Sometimes dismissal from the navy
follows the sentence. And a deserter
who has a rating, such as petty riffi*.
cer or leading seaman, is "'most sure
to lose it.

Who trill bethenext president of the lliiited States?   TJjat is the
question that is causing almost as much speculation Ou Canada and the
mother country as it is in the United States itself,
Taft has been nominated on the straight Republican ticket. He.
stayed home and minded his business while the convention went ahead
and indicated its choice. Perhaps he was aided by the magnificent Republican steam roller. But if he was he at least has the satisfaction
of knowing that the steam rollerdid not run over him. He was on top
and the man who fell victim to the unrelenting advance of the big
machine was.none other than the iuventor and onetime manipulator
thereof, oneT. Roosevelt. Back in the good old days Roosevelt was
the boss of the street paving gang. Mostly he drove the steam roller
himself. But sometimes he let Joe Cannon or Billy Taft or Elihu
Root ride on top while ho herded the victims into range with thnt
dreadful big stick of his. Sometimes he used the big stick on the boys
themselves. But they were growing up and learning all the time. And
now Willie Taft may pat himself on the buck with the satisfaction of
having licked his teacher.
Roosevelt has nominated himself on what he calta an Independent
ticket. Koosevelt is the only independent man in the bunch' though
the rest of them are absolutely dependent upon him.
Woodrow Wilson is the nominee on the regular Democratic ticket.
Champ Clark made a good fight, but, withdrew in time to allow the nomination to be made unanimous. Thus the Democrats are presenting n
solid front. And thus they have the oue greatest chance for success
that they have had in the past twenty years.
Meanwhile the financial standing of the United States is in the
usual shuky condition prior to election. Business will be more or lesB
stagnated. And Canada will profit to a greater or lesser extent, both
by the influx of settlers from the States and by tho coming hither of

That Vernon Chapman, editor of the Golden Star, is the kind of
sport we like. Hero is the way he extends the glad hand to a new
paper about to be started in ids own town:
"Rumors to the effect that two new papers are to be
started in this district in the near future were rife during the
week. It is understood that one of the new journals will be
published in the upper country and another at Golden. It is
said that the new publication in Golden will be known as the
Golden Era and will make its initul appearance during the first
week of July with F. P. Armstrong as editor. The Golden
Star will welcome the issuance of these contemporaries which
should do much to aid in the advancement of the district Especially will this paper rejoice at the publication of another
newspaper in Golden ns it will necessiate the installation of
a costly plant and the employment of several highly paid journalists and printers and make for the establishment of another
local industry."

New Ontario RtCfCnVea the Scandinavian Ptopfu. , ... .
"Ontario is now obtaining' a larger
proportion of the right sort of men
and women from the United Kingdom
whom we require; this reault ia largely due, I think, to the good accounts
that are sent 'home' by those who
have settled in the moat British province of the Dominion since we established headquarters in London and
organized n campaign throughont
Greater Britain." Mr. O, C. James,
C.M.G., former Deputy Minister of
Agriculture in the Ontario- Government, made these remarks to a representative of the press not long ago.
"Now that the superior opportunities
Ontario can offer various classes of
intending emigrants are becoming better appreciated, we hope to use the
ma|hiui?ry of our agencies on this
siil��� more effectually in sending the
right people to the right localities.
For instance, my visit to Norway,
Sweden, and Denmark has confirmed
an impression I formed on my first
short visit to these' areas two yearn
ago that there is a large Scandinavian
population who will find in the prolific virgin soil of the newly-opened
areas of Northern Ohtario, climatic*
and other conditions similar to those
in which their present persevering, intelligent hard work leaves them only a
bare subsistence*. While I should be
very careful as to what British agriculturists I advised to settle in Northern Ontario, I think it woald be difficult to make a mistake in encouraging Scandinavian emigrants to these
areas, and the more of this class of
foreign settlers we can get into Northern Ontario the better it will be tor
the province, and, indeed', for the
Dominion as a whole.
"Ontario has become a great manufacturing province, by far the largest
in Canada, and her growth* in this
regard is increasing more and more.
The one thing in which Ohtario haa
been deficient, and for which' she has
had to* depend upon the adjoining
states, ia coal, but the great water
powers, and the distribution of electric power will soon make tha province well-nigh independent of the
coal fields- of Pennsylvania:. That
Northern Ontario also has its part to
play has been shown by the1 recent
mining developments in the Cobalt
area and the 'Porcupfcie district; its
local marke.s will in time be- unexcelled. Fbr the present we advise the
British newcomer to spend a yeaV or
two in Southern Ontario before'taking
up land in the area more remote* from
conditions as t<> chools, neighborly
intercourse, and general routine;, than
thr\se he haa been accustomed to in
Britain. Toronto, our capital, it snould
always be rem inhered,. i within1 seven
days reach i>' London, and 'in the
centre of the most thickly populated
area of all Catadda. Our manufacturing industries are growing so rapidly
in the area that the agriculturist is
sure of his market. But speaking as
Deputy Minister of Agriculture, responsible for advice to the emigrant,
it is to the agriculturist, the domestic
servant, and" the prudent investor,
that we hold' out the most inducements."
As illuatrating the extent of the
organization of Ontario's Department
of Agriculture, for the benefit alike
of the new-comer and the native'born,
it may be mentioned that it has fifteen district representatives in1 various parts of the province, and there
are eleven separate branches, managed by experts in dairying, live-stock,
fruit growing, or co-operating* with
farmers' institutes, agricultural* societies, and' women's institutes.
"The latest addition to the Agricultural Department," concluded Mr.
James, "is a veterinary college;.which
will shortly have a new building in
Toronto, and add to the opportunities
afforded at Guelph, at Kingston, and
Toronto, for the most practical education to be given upon reasonable
terms, to the sons and daughters, of
those who decide to cast in their lot
with the prospering Provinue of Ontario."
Mr. James was recently appointed
a Companion of the Order of St. Michael and St. George, upon the recommendation of the Governor-General, Earl Grey, aa a recognition of
hia general services in promoting the
scientific promotion of agriculture in
the Dominion.

THE EttfclfANT 0��LT,
Irishmen   Excel   fn   Every Walk   ef
Public Lffe tn Britain.
It is remnrknhfe to wh_t extent
Irishmen hold hi.*h' plae? and power
in British public life to-day.
To begin with the army. There
couFrf hardly be found in the last 26
year* a njore brilliant trio than was
formed by the lata Sir WilTinm Butler (tho man who could' have saved
the nation from the Boer war* had his
voice of warning been listened to).
Lord Roberta of Khandahar. and
Kitchener of Khnrtoum���a man of
Btttel and the English Bismarck. Yet
eaeh of them Inherited Irish blood in
his veins, says a writer in Thi' Springfield Republican. Sir WMlnm was
the very embodiment of the Irish
soldier. He wns* horn and bred in
lHand. educated like Redmond by
the Irish Jesuits.nf Kildare, and an
hfs writings throughout his life
breathed th- national sentiment. Lord
Roberts���"Who fs little, but who'*
wiee and who's ��� terror for his sike"
���as Kipling putt, it���is also of Blah1
extraction, though- to the man in* the
stawts "Bobs" i* synonymous with-
the British army, and many remember well how, during the black week;
of the South African war, the press-
Kept the heart oC the nation alive-
proclaiming, almost like a battle ngp*
m' reassurance, "Wait till 'Bobs' goes-
out."' Yet he was trial.; while as tk��
Kitchener it Would be useless to argue
in favor of a genius- fecognized by all!
Then take the nutf- Who so typical'o*" the breesy popufar English tar
a�� Lord Charles BeresfcHP Yet what
family has taken a greater part in
IrisH* history than that from which,
ss second son of the fburth Marquis
of Waterford, he takes- his namedP
Entering as a cadet in 1869 and only
retiring in 1909 wh?n rear-admiral of
the fleet, he has seen active service
at tKe- bombardment of Alexandria
and in Egypt, while as an author
("The- Break-up of China") and as a
member of Parliament, he has always
been tftie foremost advocate of a
itrong and effective navy-:.
In the sphere of law it would be
hard ten single out among* the hosts of
brilliant'Irishman, one who can represent h&race more efficiently than the
rest, but men like Sir Edward Carson
an-1 Gill; two of the leading English
(?) K.C/s may .h- mentioned, while
mi the Bench one may point to Lord
Ashbourne, an Irishman again, educated at* Trinity College, DMHin, later
memb?r of the University;,, then Attorney-General for Ireland; and then
Lo:i Chancellor from 1895 to 1906. In
the whole past century there have
been fcw, if any, more prominent at
the bar than the late Lord'Russell of
Killowen; whose fnmous cross-examination of Piggot, the forger, is one
of the most dramatic of English causes
celebres, exculpating as it' did, the
Irish leader, Charles Stewart Parnell,
from one of the grayest charges ever
brought up against a politician���and
Russell was an Irishman.
Tn science, if anything a test of
capability, ther* is no name which fs
more known and respected' in1 foreign
pai versifies, than tl-nt of Sir WiTIimn
Thompson, the late Lord Kelvin. Yet
he was an Irishman from Belfast, and
:luring th"e whole of his life devoted
ti great part of his interests tot the
furthering of Irish education. Going
on to the application of science to
invention, Cnst-char, in Freland. can
noost of her I.ouis Brennan, the originator of the celebrated torpedo,
superintendent of a Government factory c;iir d after him, and'the producer of" the jryroscopic-monoraill sys-
terq of transit. Then .Here is, Marconi, son of an Irish mother and married to an Irish wife.
The impractical Irishman is almost
a mucli of a popular superstition as
the incapable Irishman; yet here
again we are met by tfle fiat contra-
diction of fact. When that'universal
umpire* th' "Man in the Street,"
wants tt> speak of a great prince of
"(i-nm'rce, he speaks of: "a Lip. on."

Notch Hill.
The first of July waa a record day in
Notch Hill. There were never bo many
people there before or since. They were
there from as far west as Shuswap
and as far east as Seymour Arm.
The chief attractions were the Chsse
band, the pretty girls, ths Royal Hotel,
and George Hammond.
The performance of the band waa so
good that some wanted that and nothing elee. They played some twenty
odd different selections snd there were
those who would have liked a hundred
and twenty.
The girls���well, they ere modest and
don't care to be advertised, but the line
up for the ladies' foot race was worth
taking a day off to look at.
For some who set more store by what
touches that dry spot in the throat than
on what appeals to either ear or eye,
the Royal Hotel was the centre around
which- they revolved. .,
As for George Hammond, he wee the
man who pulled off moet of the big
athletic starts, snd left the Impression
that he could have beaten all his own
records if he- had thought it worth

teams could play good ball if they would
practise, and that neither of team had
had any practice. The redeeming feature of the game was that the teams
were evenly matched. The line-up was
as follows:
Notch Hill Tappen
Hammond Carlin
G. McLean A. Farrell
Vernon Nash
Bischoff .". McDonald
McDonald B. Farrell
O.Farrell J. Farrell
Norman F. Farrell
F. McLean  Croddock
Sandahl Sanderson.
The game resulted in a score of 18���
14 in favor of Notch Hill.
In other events George Hammond won
the running high jump at 4ft, 11 in;
the standing board jump at 9 ft. 4J in;
the running board jump at 18 ft; the
running hop-step-and-jump at 38 ft 7 in
and the hundred yard dash.
He didn't win the mile run because'he
didn't enter. The prize for this event
went to John Rily of Celista.
Another event that Hammond might
not have been able to win even if he
had been allowed to enter, was the fifty
yard dash for ladies. The fair ones
were sure some sprinters. The honors
fell to Miss Hazel McLean of Blind Bay,
Miss Jean Brown of Celista being second.
A football match between Notch Hill
and Celista ended abruptly in a draw.
Some one got tired of the strenuous life
and kicked a hole in the ball.
Excellent music, a good floor, and a
light-hearted, light footed crowd made
the dance in the evening one of the
best ever held in the little burg at the
top of the grade. Some who had spent
the day in Kamloops and other places
that celebrated, felt the attraction and
came to the Hill for the dance.
The musicians were the noted Celista
orchestra, and Harry Fowler did the job
as floor manager in the way he knows
how. It waB after daylight when the
home waltz was called.
The whole celebration was creditable
to the committees that had it in charge
and the dollars they gathered in were
for value received. Come again, Notcli
Hill, but next time have a place for us
to sleep when the dance is over. The
scenery doesn't look good to us in the
grey light of the morning after.
