About five o'clock on Wednesday
afternoon the barn of Chas. Kerr,
(on the J. T. Mnynnrd Farm) was
totally destroyed hy fire, together
with the season's feed, five horses,
and hay , etc. Mr. Kerr was
feeding hay to the horses, and had
the misfortune to over turn a lighted lantern. The oil ignited nnd
although Mr. Kerr made a heroic
effort to put the tire out, his efforts
were of no avail, owing to the in-
flainable nature of the surroundings
und a draught through tlie stables.
He cut the horses loose but they
refused to leave their stalls, but
the stock was saved. The barn
was valued at S2.000 on which
thoir is an insurance of 81,500.
The horses, and feed arc a total
loss, amounting to about 81,500.
The loss is an unfortunate one to Mr.
Kerr, he having taken possession
but a lew months ago.
Besides his own loss, about
fifteen ton of hay, belonging
to Mr. J. T. Miiynad was burned.

From Fort William
The Daily Times-Journal, of Fort
William, bus the following reference
regurding the election of R. F.
Waddington as Mayor of Chilliwaek.
Mayor Waddington has received
many congratulatory messages from
Eastern friends on the occasion of
his election to the position lirsl
honor in Chilliwaek: "At the
municipal elections in British Columbia held the first week in January,
I!. F. Waddington was elected
Mayor of Chilliwaek, polling 197
votes to his opponent's 121. Mr.
Waddington will receive the congratulations of his Fort William
friends on his election OS he is well
known to most of the people of this
city.   He was a member of the firm
Snelgrove-Waddington Co. that carried on a general business for a
numlier of years and is still doing
business at Murillo. Mr. Waddington was a member of the Board  of
Education for a term of years and
was always held in  very  high  regard by the business  men of this
Tke P. S. A. Meeting
About three hundred men listened with much interest to a very
fine address, well delivered, on
Sunday afternoon, in the Lyric
Theatre, by Rev. II. J. Birch, of
and Westminster Hall. Vancouver.
The subject was an uncommon one
and handled in ii terse nnd striking
stylo by the jpoakor, "How miion
man is bound lo customs or ghosts
of the past, and to what extent litis free," was the theme.    By several
illustrations Rov. Mr. Birch showed
how much moro men, governments,
and religion are bound to the past
than to the present, and yet in one
phase of bis life man is absolutely
froo. Each man and he alone
must grapple with his life's problems
a purely personal matter, in which
man learns that the Christ of
History is the Christ of Eternity;
that it is truth that frees men's
minds and men's Imdios. Truth
would bring mnn lo his proper relation to his (Ind. Robt. Car-
miohnol sang a solo whieh was woll

son, being confined to his homo by
illness, the Vice President Mr.
Simple conducted the meeting.
An adjourned meeting nf the
City Council was hold in the Clerk's
oiliee on Monday night, all the
members    being    present    except
Alderman Gervan.
A communication froni Elk Crook
Waterworks Co. in reply to a lottor
from Mayor Waddington re purchase of Water works plant. The
loiter pointed out that the city had
no right to purchase same before
December 111, 1015, throe months
notice to bo given. A reply of the
Mayor was also read asking the
Company lo state as to whether the
Company was willing to sell.
A letter wns road from City
Solicitor stating that according to
Section -15 of Municipal Clauses Act,
the city may dismiss a City official
at any time.
E. Minton of Vancouver applied
for position as stroot cleaner for. tbo
city.    No action wus taken.
M. Riley applied to Council for
position of Goalor. Referred lo
Police Commission.
O. Hay, J. II. Ross and others
petitioned tlio Council to have
Lewis street botween Young road
and Cnrbold street opened up. The
matter was referred to Chairman of
Board of Works with power to act.
A petition wus presented asking
that Victor street lie graded from
Recce avenue to Ynlo road.
Thc printing of thc By-law Debentures hy the Progress Co. for the
sum of 850.00 was confirmed. The
Free Press tender was $54.00.
The matter of thc contract between the city and Engineer wus
brought forward by the Mayor, who
re-ollirmed the truth of the statement, made hy him ut lust meeting
drawing attention to the fact that
the Council could not contract beyond thc year for which it was
elected. The Mayor stated that he
had interviewed the memhers of lust
year's board, as to the impression
they had of thc matter. Two
members had no recollection of
anything being brought forward
supporting Mayor Waddington's
contention, while the others, were
of the opinion tliat thc agreement
as understood by the Council did
not extend beyond the year 1911.
The Mayor stated he had two
reasons for bringing the matter forward at the time: that the Council
should be right, and that Engineer
might not get a false impression.
The amount involved in tbe
matter was small, and the whole
thing somewhat trilling, und a
legal dispute over it wus, the Mayor
considered, beneath the dignity of
of tbo city, und as tbe Engineer's
lervices eould   Ik-  used   in taking
of chimneys on a blacksmith shop.
Mr, Knight was promised a copy of
the By-law covering these  matters.
Two Vancouver purchasers of
City lots in old agricultural ground
site, were reported by the clerk as
not having made payments due nor

The Chairman of the Board of
Works brought up the matter of
obtaining a suitable shelter for tho
road machinery and municipal tools.
It was suggested that n barn be ranted, but the majority of tho Alder-
mon were of opinion that  it  would
be belter to build a suitable shed
on a city lot on Victoria street, in-
eluding accommodation also for
city teams and BUpply of feed.      In
compliance with this idea the chairman of the Hoard of Works was
asked to submit a plan and probable cost of such a structure, to
next meeting of Council.
Council then adjourned.

Odd Fellow's Funeral Aid
One of tho newer features of Odd
Fellowship in llritish Columbia is
what is popularly known as The
Funeral Aid. This was authorized
by tbe Grand Lodge at its meeting
in Kamloops in 1010. The formal
organization, however, was not
effected till much later in the same
your. The object of this latest
expression of fraternal Odd Fellowship is to place such immediate
linunci-I assistance in the hands of
the families of deceased tlild Fellows
as will meet the crisis caused by
the removal of the head of the
family end the consequent disarrangement of  his business all'iirs,
ponding the legal adjustment of his
estate. Thc British Columbia
Funeral Aid is organized on linos
similar in most respects to what is
known as the Manitoba Association
which bus been in existence for
nearly thirty years and whieh has
a membership of over 3,500 nnd
has relieved over 200 families.
Notwithstanding the growth nnd
the 8UCCCB8 of the Manitoba Association, the British Columbia Association has made u larger guin in
the lirst yeur of its existence than
was made iu Manitoba during the
lirst six years of that organization,
As its aims and objects become bettor known to tho membership at
large the directors have evory riason
for feeling confident that they will
ice the membership reach the one
thousand murk during the year
1012, The Association bus re

A petition wus presented asking
that Victor street lie graded from
Reeee avenue to Y'alo road.
The printing of the By-law Debentures by the Progress Co. for thc
sum of 850.00 wasconfirmed. Thc
Free Press tender was 854.00.
The matter of thc contract between the city and Engineer was
brought forward by the Mayor, who
re-offirmed the truth of the statement, made by him at last meeting
drawing attention to the fact that
the Council could not contract beyond the year for which it was
elected. The Mayor stated that he
had interviewed thc members of last
year's board, as to the impression
tliey had of tlic matter. Two
members had no recollection of
anything being brought forward
supporting Mayor Waddington's
contention, while the others, were
of the opinion that the agreement
as understood by the Council did
not extend beyond the year 1911.
The Mayor stated he had two
reasons for bringing thc matter forward at the time: that the Council
should be right, and that Engineer
might not get a false impression.
The amount involved in the
matter was small, and the whole
thing somewhat trifling, and a
legal dispute over it was, the Mayor
considered, beneath the dignity of
of tlie city, and as the Engineer's
services eould lie used in taking
levels for a proposed sewage scheme,
he recommended that the subject
be dropped, in which tho Council
The City Engineer was instructed

Bills nf expenses of prisoners
from Cliilliivack to Nanaimo were
presented. It appears that if a
prisoner is given a term with the
option of a fine, the lino not being
paid, the prisinnor on lieing sent
down, the expense is charged to
the city, while if the sentence does
not contain the option uf a fine, no
charges nre paid by the (ioverninoiit.
The matter was referred to the City
Solicitor to take up with the Pro-
vlnoial Warden at Nanaimo.
Reeve Wilson, of the Municipality of Cliilliwnck, addressed the
Counoll making a request for accommodation for Council meetings,
Municipal ulliee, and lockup in tlio
now City hall. Reeve Wilson was
promised consideration nnd thut
suitable arrangements could no
doubt he made, when the Hall was
ready for occupancy, whicli would
lie some time yet.
Fire Chief T. P. Knight interviewed the Council ns to his jurisdiction, us Fire Chief. Complaint had
boon mado to him regarding tin-
over seating ol one of the eburehes,
recently, and also as to  condition
of chimneys on u blacksmith shop.
Mr. Knight was promised a copy of

Two Vancouvor purchasers of
City lots in old agricultural ground
site, were reported hy the clerk as
not having made payments due nor
paid taxes. The matter wus turned
over lo the City Solicitor for attention.
The Chairman of the Hoard of
Works brought up the matter of
obtaining a-suitablo shelter for the
mad machinery and municipal tools.
It was suggested that n barnberont-
id, but the majority of the Aldermen were of opinion that it would
he bettor tn build a suitable shed
on u city lot on Victoria street, in-
iluding accommodation also for
city teams and supplv of feed. In
compliance with this idea the chairman of the Hoard of Works was
asked to submit u plan and probable cost of such a structure, to

Postmastor Thomas. "Sometimes in
tho mornings 1 cannot straighten up
for hours, but if 1 tako two Dodd's
Kidney Pills before going to bed the
pain all disappears and 1 have
trouble in the morning."
Dodd's Kidney fills act direetly ou
tho Kidneys. Where pain in the back
is caused by slight Kidney disorders
the pain is relieved at once. Where
the complaint is of longer standing
and the Kidneys are diseased tho CUT
takes longer, and Dodd's Kidney Pills
never fail. Thousands of Canadians
tell of the cure of Kidney Disease of
all forms, from pain in the baek to
Bright'fl Disease, by Dodd's Kidney
l'ills. There is not on record n single

Dealers in horses might avail them

The performance of tho double-gait-

"a known that, for lack of timo to
change shoes, the horse was changed
from pace to trot morely by putting
four-ounce toe weights forward and a
shift in boots—bell quarter boots and
scalpers in place, of the usual quarter
boots worn when on a pace. To balance
the horso just right for trotting James
Brown, his driver, has found tbat it is
best to rig Scapegoat with a ten-ounce
ihoe on the off hind foot and wear two-
ounce toe weights forward, but with
tht races coming so close together he
was forced to put on tho heavier too
weights and let the hind feet remain as
they wore in tho pacing race.

bo cured with Catarrhozono. Its rich
balsamic vapor is carried along with,
the breath into the innermost recesses
of tho lungs, bronchial tubes, nnd

germ of any disease to live. Thus
soreness in tho chest is at onco ailo-
viated—phlegm is loosened and eject*
ed from the throat, old-standing coughs
uro removed.
'I suffered from an irritable, weak
throat for three years,. I had a severe
cough, pain ovor the eyes, constant

Of age. and he, being BU inveterate

some remote pnrt «.t' his father'*, house.
Mr. Frederic Harrison, one of our great
est men of letters today, preaches
against tobacco as ono uf the great
curses of society.
One day, some months, ago, I entered
a carriage in B railway train, iu which
sat the great essayist. tie asked un*
anxiously before I entered whether 1
smoked, and was not happy till I informed him that smoking was imt
among my many vices. John Bright,
on tbe other hand, was all his llfo it
very determined smoker. He usually
smoked a big morschaum pipe, but he
also loved a cigar. When he was in
the House of Commons, you very seldom found him in the chamber itself.
For years before his death he had that
eurlous nervous horror of speaking
which overcomes ever men of great ora
torleal ability after a certain time of
life. Once lifter his Bene tight against
the Crimean War, when he was mobbed
in several towns, Bright was for a whilo
thrcatonod With softening of the brain,
and he never, 1 bollevo, got over the
in jury to his uervous system, though
ho did not .nuke many of Wl greale-t
Ipoecbes after that opoch.
He used tO Bay that when he was
templed to speak he always was fright-
onod by tho though! that bo would fall
down the moment he got on Ills legl B
not unusual terror wilh men who have
to do an excessive amount of speaking.
Many old electioneers have told ine of
the same terror, and it is one from
which 1 myself have BUfforod when long
months of campaigning have brought
me down to nervous weakness. Bright
W0S naturally a man to lOVO smoking.
He was a lethargic man-never was
enpable of drudgery, and he used often
to say Hint the one nuibilion of his life
|,   wns a passionate desire to do nothing.
[ Ho never read a bill ibrough and ever
mattered the details of anything. Thus
he was a failure as a minisler, nud
ttaUS also be was the greatest orator of
modern times in England -for it added
to his 0lT0CtiV0nos8, especially as a platform orator, lhat  he drew all his pie-
I* hires in simple, broad lines, cosily un-
dorstOOd bv the people.
Today the majority of politicians nre
smokers, nud often political leelotalers
|f eompenintfl for their abstetntion from
alcohol bv extra devotion to tobacco.
Mr. I.loyd OoorgO is a great smoker, so
is Winston Churchill, nnd the one man

It is perhaps oven more incredible,

Labby was the employer and manager
of a theatre iu London, of Honry Irving. Charles Wyndham. Ellen Terry,

Early-day settlers in any state were

"There are 00 fossil meu," exclaimed tho great Cuvier just a century ago,
and wilh this dictum settled definitely,
as he supposed, the question of man's
origin, HOW fnr we have progressed
in the century that lias since passed is
well sot forth iu a summary of archaeological discovery, appearing serially in
recent numbers of the Nuturwissen-
Bchaftllche Wochenschrlft, by Dr. H.
von Buttol•RoepOU of Oldenburg.
The foundations of modem archaeology may, indeed, be said to have been
laid only with the discovery of the
Noonderta] skull in 1850, so that our
entire knowledge of prehistoric man is
actually but lifty years old. This discovery, oue of the most Important of
the kind ever made, was nearly coincident witli (he publication uf Darwin's
work, so  that   the  progTOM  of incline
oiogy and of modern biological scleuce
can be said to havo moved hand in
hand. The Nenn.lerlal skull was a most
remarkable specimen, in that it WU
clearly Hie skull of n man, whilo more
apelike than that of any existing man,
and having a brain capacity about midway between that of man and tbat of
the higher apes. Its peculiar physical
features, differentiating it from lli.ise
of any previously known human skull,
were the extriiordinury nrhlt.il ridges,
tho low retreating forehead, and its
long narrow shape. Derided at first is
merely the skull of n modern degener
ale, its discovery wns followed iu succeeding years by that of n whole race
of Neandertat men. and ns the mi**.is
which enshroud recent geological lime
have cleared away, we have cume to
distinguish successive epochs moro on
less   closely   ent related   with   tlioso   of
the Quntornnry and Tertiary periods, In

Four hundred millions of Chinese contribute heavily to tho undertaker every
year. ltailway constructors aro especially aware uf this, fur ouo of the most
troublesome obstacles in the way of industrial progress in China is tbo presence of tho old graveyards. A Chinaman reveres his ancestors in direct proportion to thc timo they have heen dead
and some of them, if the translations
of inscriptions ure to bo believed, have
been dead for a prodigious while.
The man wbo can go out end claim
as his own a mound that bears an inscription auto dating the Christian era
a few hundred years has no need to
seek distinction through literary or official channels-     Be is a made man, and
his doscondauts will   continue tu be

along uinl obliterates his "maker."

The iustunee of tbo BttBUUI railroad
from Harbin to Port Arthur, whicli
made a twenty-six mile detour to avoid
Ihe ancient .Manchu tombs at Mukden,
has often been cited to show tho expense and trouble tliat may arise from
this cause. This was many years ago,
and there seems tu bo a popular idea.
even among (lie old foreign residents of
China, Ibat the way of the builders of
railways is much easier now than then.
As a matter of fact, since people are dying right along and the number of
graves increase as n consequence, it is
very doubtful if the conditions nro not
becoming worse rnlher thuu better. The
l utnoso hnve accepted the railroad as it
convenience in transportation, nut as a
destroyer of their beloved graves. They
have shown tho greatest readiness to
patroiit/.e, unco it is built, but they
never hnve, and never will, cease putting obstacles iu the way of n line thnt
disturbs so much as a single isolated
ancestral resting plnco.
Most nf tbe QOUCOSalOM granted by
the OhlflOM government stipnluto that,
as fnr ns possible, graves of nil classes
lhall be left undi«turbed. and tn tho

heuvy losses of time and money, those
agreements havo been, for tho most
part, scrupulously observed in spirit us
well as in letter.
Tho Kowloun railroad will presently
give tho hinterland of Hong Kong rail
communication with Europe, via Po*
kin, Manchuria, and Siberia. It is tho
most expensive ploco of railway construction in the east, its twenty-two
miles uf almost continuous cuts, tills,
and tunnels having cost in the vicinity of thirteen million dollars (Mexican) per mile,
Sir Frederick Lugard, the governor of
Hong Kong, tells the following story
of ono of the bridges whieh was built
higher and longer Umn tu tho Westerner would seem accessary.
"A little cluster of horseshoe -shaped
hollows faced with concrete wore a
couple of bundled yards ou tbo downstream side ni tim bridgo. They were
lbo earthly resting-places of lho lincoa
tors of lho headman ol llm llttlo village
around the. bend, und the oldest of (hem

comes iu bei ween, and bocilUSO we
couldn't   build   it   low enough   for Ilimu
l.o s ner  it, we had to built  il high
OOOllgh for Ihem to seo under il. The
change cost iu tho vicinity of i|i_0,000,"
At Hoochow, all of the ground necessary fur llm erection of railway shops
was seemed, with the exception of a
single small squaro in one corner, the
owner of Which Btoatlfnstly refused to
sell   lor  any   coiisideral ion   on   tho  plea
that lbo building to bu erected would
cast an '* unlucky" shadow on sumo
Iiousob iu I bo adjoining compound,
which bo also chanced to own. Tho
righl of way man had about given up
iu despair, when tho Chinese vice-president of tho company hoard of the difficulty ami promptly stepped in and
touk a hand. Ilo visited tho geoinau-
cer himsolf, to return with a rough
drawing of a cheap frame bid hii ng
which he ordered to bu put up at once
on n spot which he selected only after
a whole day of pacing, calculating, ami
The new building, tall, slender, and
very shaky was erected in u couple of
days, and no sooner was it completed
than lho owner of the desired property
called on tho right of way man and offered to sell out at once. The latter,
having had his instructions from tbe
vice-president, began scaling his offer, ultimately buying thc land for less
than half of his original bid, The rea-
son ior the owner's change of mind was
that tbe new building was su placed
and designed us to cast an "unlucky"
shadow on tho house which occupied
the desired lot, making it impossible
for him either lo live in it himsolf or to
find u tenant to occupy it.
Of course, wben it is imperative, for
topographical or otber reasons, that a
line should take it certain course, means
bave tu be adopted which will render
the owners of conflicting graves willing
to sell, A hundred dollars is considered a fair price for an "unimproved"
grave of no special antiquity, aud if
the owner of one which stands in the
way of a railroad seems disposed to
stand out for u higher figure, he is
quietly ignored, while the grading is
carried up to both sides of his holding
and stopped. Then the constant passing to and fro of tho workmen, the
screech of the construction engines and
the presence of tho "foreign devils"
seem novor tu fail to convince the re
calcitrant that tbo spirits of his ancestors will rest mure quietly in a cheaper
and less crowded locality.
Many of tbe foreign educational institutions of China have been years acquiring tho land fur their grounds, un
account of the reluctance of certain
grave owners to sell, aud tho blue
print maps of some of their holdings remind one of tbo drawing of tho original "Gerrymander" Congressional
district iu Massachusetts. The Canton
Christian College, ia Smith Chinn, has
a striking monument to the obduracy
of a solitary grave holder in tho form
ni an upright cylinder of yellow clay
in the middle of the basketball field.
Not tho deseoruting touch of tho feet of
tbe hated "foreign devils,'' not tbo turmoil of the mad gumes that surge
around it, not even the tact that its elevated crest is occasionally utilized by
au irrcveront student as a coign ui
vantage from which to toss a gual, has
ted the old woman who owns it to
aicept the generous offer made her by
tho college authorities for her little
"six feet of soil,"
The obvious thing for the college
authorities to do would be tu pay a
visit lu the geomoncers ami arrange
that the old lady should be instructed
that the "feugsbiii" decreed thnt her
I.i te husband would rest with mure
tranquility in some oilier place; hut ;w
subtlety of this kind is hardly in tbe
line of a Christian institution, it is nol
unlikely that tbe strange looking cylinder of yellow clay may star the campus
basketball field until' the game old
widow is herself numbered wilh her an
Cremation, which, according to Marco
Polo, wus practised by si.me of the
Chlnoso in tho thirteenth century,
would prove Ihe logical nud practical

Cremation, however, is opposed tu the
present principles of the general run of
tbo people, wbo beliuves that unless the
whole body goes ititncl into tho next
world it will not be able to reassemble
itself for the following reincarnation.
Most of tlie Christian institutions are
encouraging cremation ipiietly and unobtrusively, and it is not impossible
that the adoption of the saving practice may come with the spread of the
foreign religions.
The difference thnt tho universal

lously. Anybody can talk lo tbo loose-
Miiuded crowd of the modern city, but it
takes pluck ami health ami organization
I lots nf other solid attributes lu run
a farm.
There is a farm in England where womon aru trying to learn these elements.
it is in Checkendon, a tiny little placo
among the Chiii.-rn Hills In Oxfordshire, nnd is known all lho country
round as* the "women's farm." It is
known all tho country round, too, as a
successful farm. Its milk and eggs and
potatoes and poultry aud what, not else
iro reckoned as line products as auy
that como out of the Thames valley
througn all its fruitful extent.
Mlsa K. Kate Le Laehour is the principal of the women's farm, und sue is
a woman who is a great deal more
English than her name. Sbo is a graduate of Nownham College, the women's
innex" of Cambridge University- and
her feminism is sufficiently attested by
a large wooden sign marked "Votes for
Women." displayed prominently on Ibe
porch—the lirst detail that a visitor to
the farm is likely to take in. Her pro-
sent occupation, however, is not iu getting votes for women, but in providing
work for women, and this she doc"** with
vengeance. At present there are
bout -U students at tbo farm—there
are 50 when it is running in the .regular summer term time—and their programme is a very rigorous one. Dp in
the morning at seven, they sit down to
tea when six o'clock comes, a lot of
very hungry farmors nud tired enough
to relieve Miss Lo Lnehenr of tho
trouble of making any social arrangements for the evening. Mind you most
of these nro girls of culture, "bluestockings" frum tho universities ur
delicately reared daughters of the cities,
BO their grit is all the more notable.
There is nnt even a moving-picture
palace at Checkendon, nu dunces, no
revels on tbe modern village green; nothing but a hundred acres of very profound silence. Some of the women farmers stay at tbo neighboring cottages,
others fix up cots iu the spacious back
yard of the farm; but wherever they
stay, none of them have yet complained
nf insomnia. Tliey learn uixe thing at
least at Checkendon ov dint of this
feminine wrestling with the bounty of
the earth—how to sleep.
Miss Le LaebOUr explained tbc women's farm. "Our original idea," sho
said, "was to train girls to tako up
farms at home, but now many of our
pupils aim for America and the colonies as soon as they are finished with
the course. So what the enterprise
really comes to is fitting Knglish girls
for life in the new countries. And you
must know nt the start that ihey all
get on; not one to my knowledge thnt
We have really sent out thoroughly
equipped 1ms found the fanning proposition too hard for her,
"Most of our amateur farmers come
from the city," she continued In answer to a question. "Tho occupations
open  to  WOman   nowadays  are all  ion
Bodontnry, uud thousands of typists ami
clerks 'slogging' alung in their stuffy
shops and uflices would give anything
for work that would bring Ihem .ml on
the green grass with a mow in front of
tbem ami goml, cariuv work tu do instead of clacking typewriters and adding up figures nil day.
"Don't go away with the idea that
the work at this farm is a dream. We
ilo everything ourselves ami we rely en
more than our air nnd our view to cultivate n healthy spirit of enterprise, fix-
net information nnd hnrd work nro our
mottos. Our poultry instructor, the only
mnn   on   the   place,   has  been   on   the
staff of tho University College Poultry
farm at Heading, and tho women who
study with us carry awny an expert
knowledge of incubating, breeding,
feeding, and housing, laying, stock and
table rearing, marketing and demon
tnry carpentry before wo allow tbem lo
take up a poultry farm.
"One of our students is soon going to
Canada to stiirt on a dairy farm in
Athabaska. She had to learn how to
milk five cows—she was n typist when
sho came to us—clean up, and get them
safely in the sheds for the night within
an hour before she could 'pass.' Then
sbe learned filtering, cooling, and set
ting, nil about crenm raising, butter
making, pasteurizing, the use und enre
of the U ton sill, milk testing, nnd finally
how to male good dotted Devunshire
cream and cream cheese. That is » curriculum for you, isn't ltf
"These are only two departments of
tbe work,  however,  Besides these the
girls can nlso learn to ropair engines
and farm machines, haymaking and cutting, the cultivation of all sorts of garden truck, and several crops us wed—
the product of tbo 10 acre potato field
bore this out—while cooking, cleaning,
and all thu uther departments of country housekeeping are taught in our kitchen. Can you think of anything we

As a summer recreation the actress
decided to start a poultry farm, which
she did with a barnyard hen and thirteen eggs from the village store.
Not haring even the most elementary
knowledge ef poultry, she enquired of
a neighbor how long eggs generally
took to hftteh.   Mho received tho reply:
"Three weeks fur chickens mid four
for ducks."
Tho neighbor met hor somo timo afterward, and on boing asked how the
poultry farming was going on, she replied, with a lowering coutenance:
"Oh, I've finished with it. At tho
end of threo wooks there wero no chickens, so I took tho hen off. as I didn't
want ducks."
Governor Eberhart, of Minuosota,

"Once while travelling through my

went into tho diuing-enr, which wus
crowded, so 1 snt down near one end
of the car, opposite a fleshy lady, who
1 thought weighed at least two hun
dred and fifty pounds.
"As I looked past, the lady through
tho ear window, not noticing her pur
tii'iilarly, I wns impressed by the vust
IllllOUtlt of furm umchiiiery that was
unsheltered und exposed tu tin*' weather
and could not help but remark. "What
a waste!'
'' The lady opposite mo faced me
squaroty and said: ' Mister, you just,
mind your own  business,, "
Itobort MaCOl), congressman from Ar-

Tho owner of n pretentious town
dwelling was reading in the smoking
room of his homo when he looked up
from Ins paper uud saw u seedy-looking
Individual Standing down on the carriage way, eyes dilatod ami mouth wide
open, seemingly dazed at tlio imposing
sight  before him.
After watching him some time thc
owner bocaino annoyed, and leaning out
of tlie window, said:
"My mnn, don't you know this is
private property! Why do you stand
there staring at my house! Do yon tako
it for a church!"
His unwelcome visitor, after looking
him over as carefully ns he could at
the distance, replied, "Wall, I thought

it an impromptu reception one night:
"The teacher of the class in English
hnd demandod thnt thc pupils all write
for their daily exercise a short account
of a baseball game. Ono youngster sat
through the period, seemingly wrapped
in thought, while the others nil turned

After school the teacher, impatient
and disgusted at tho laggard, offered
him only five minutes to writo the
description, with a thrashing as an alternative.
The boy concentrated all his attention upon the theme in hand, and as
tho teacher counted his remaining moments.
At the last, he scratched a Hue un
bis tablet, and with a sigh of relief
handed it to his master. It read, 'Haiti

The meeting of Cliilliwnck Dairy-
mon culled I'nr Insl Saturday was
largely attended. .1. A. Evans
ocoupied tho chair. Tho mooting
was culled for tli- purpose of organizing the dairying interests of tho
valloy, The need of such combining
of individual interests has heen
more or less impressed upon the
producer of dairy products of lnte,
and the suggestion hns gained
strength readily, Tbo Chillhvaok
Dairymon's Association is now launched Into lieing, with the following
capable mon to pilot tho organiza- j
tion to the success which should

of tho Constitution and By-laws of
this Association, nud  requested  to
; nominate, n man to represent it on
tho Board of Commissioners, with
full power to act in accordance with
tho plan of this Association.
Whereas, realizing thai "in
union there is strength," and that
by co-operation, llm dairymen
throughout Iho Frasor Valley would
bo able t" secure for themselves
better conditions in the market,
Bo it resolved: Thnt this Association express its willingness to co-
oporatc with any similar organization at present in existence or
which may Inter bo organized, that
hns for iis objections ihe attainment
of lietter conditions und results for
the dairymen,
Whereas, an Act of the Legislature providing for the inspection of
dairy herds nnd premises, if fully
enforced requires the services of a
competent parson in cortain districts
almost continuously, Bo it resolved:
That the British Columbia Dairymen's Association be asked to
endorse a resolution urging the
Provincial Government to pass a
lnw extending the dut'- I of Dairy
Inspector to include thut of testing
the milk und cream for each dairyman nt Ihe several collecting centres

\Vhi:iii:as, the present lnw governing the inspection of dairy premises
and health of dairy cattle, nre intended lo protect the   public   pur-
: chasing milk mid cream from
diseased and spurlc articles, lie it
therefore   resolved:    That   we   in
Lonventton assembled, ask the B.

•; p rs, nnd shipowners begin to give

1 mr. Tho Eworsand, with nn en
gtnc "f no horso powor, made a cruise
of Ave weeks with throe tons of oil
as compared with the twenty tons of
coal tli.it would have boon required un
dor steam, The uso of tho oil engine
increased the length of tbo boat avail
able for cargo by thirteen foot.
Knowlodgo nf theso things gotting
abroad, the Anglo-Saxon Petroleum Co,
ventured to build lbo first motor ship
of really substantial size, the oil carrier Vulvanus, This vessel, Infi foot
long, '•'•"> toot beam, and 117ft tons gross
register, was fitted with Diesel oil engines of 550 homo powor, which proved
to bo aide to drive her at a speed of
***. 1 knots an hour on n consumption of
■2,5 t"ns of oil in twenty four hours.I
The most Interesting point about tho
Vulcnnus was that her operating ox
bonsefl were $10.60 a day lo*-s than those
of a stonmship of tho same capacity.
The performnncc of the Vulcanuswas
tbo match which tired an exceedingly
Inter) ting train of events. Intore-t
in tho now marina motor became acute
nnd widespread. Orders came in upon
the naval architects thick and Fast for
larger and siill larger motor -hips, the
ownors of tho Vulcnnus taking tho load
by laying down u motor ship twice tho
. ,. ■ , | q successful pioneer.
One "f tho curliest ..f the largo crnfl
to l-o put Into commission after the
Vulcnnus was tho Toiler, built to op
.rate on lbo Canadian bikes and can
Hla, Tho Toiler is 848 foot long, 12.8
foot   beam,  and   10  feet   molded depth.
On iic'-ount  of the speed limit   Imp
by  canal  navigation  tbo  oil  onginos
were only 100 horso power, which is
lufllciont to maintain a speed of six
miles an hour when fully loaded, Tho
Toiler looks very much like an oro
canior on tho Oroat Lakes, except that
sin* ban no funnel. Tbo pilot hOUSO,
bridge nnd part, of tho crow's accomodation! are porcbod on tho bow, while
tho engine room and the rest of the
crow's quartan appear nt tho farther
end of 0 long expanse of hutches at tbe
OXtroma stern. On her trial trip tho
ruler carried 8,050 tons of coal in
Calais at a spend nf 5.0 knots (C.78
miles) an hoar.      Tho return light was
n ado at a speed of s._ knots (0."> miles)
nn hour, The fuel consumption for
the roui 1 trip was 0,5 tons of oil, or
nn ovornge of 1*7 tons a day, worth
(15,(10, bi compnrod with 0 tons of coal
worth $28, which a steamship of lho
•miine capacity would have require 1
daily. To this laving of $12,40 n .lay

to employ the Toiler in the coasting

but everything worked so woll that the

havo boon so importuut, and tliu fact
became so evident that Diesel engines
would soon be used extensively for
ship propulsion, that Lloyd's some
months ago appointed a committee to.
investigate the new motor. The re-'
.-.nits of the Investigation must have
boon satisfactory, judging Irom a paper
which ,i. T. Hilton, chief surveyor for
Lloyd's, presented at a meeting of the
Institution of .Naval Architects last April, in which he predicted that the on-

To thu patriotic American, who   is
convinced  that  nothing  really    worth
while ever originates outside the boundaries of his  native land, and  whu pru-
bably aovor heard of Dr. Diesel or his
oil engine, tho sudden appearance of the
motor ship must be astonishing,   Perhaps it may surprise him still more to
bo  told  tiiat the Disel  engine is tar
from   being new or untried.      As long
ngo as 1901  the franklin  Institute, of
Philadelphia, awarded tho Elliott Ores*
in gold medal to II orr Rudolf Diesel
... recognition of tbo groat service ho
had rendered mankind by his invention.
Even then the Diesel engine had been
in  general  use  in   Europe  for seven
years,      Since then Diesel  engines to
lliu value of millions of pounds sterling
vo beeu built fur use ou land.
An account Of the origin of the oil
OOgino falls entirely tu measure up to
thu  popular idea  of  what the history
of a great invention should be.   There
was uu starving inventor burning the
midnight oil in n garret, uu miraculous
discovery of an elusive secret, nothing
romantic, nothing spectacular.   Dr. Die-
boI, the   inventor,    is a    bard -headed,
sober-minded, thoroughly educated German, who knew exactly what he wanted
to l-i before he undertook to do it.   The
task he sot himsolf wus the production
of an Internal-combustion motor which,
t>y nvoiding the troubles of other motors
ui  that class, would bo thoroughly re-
liablo, suitable  for  universal uso, and
economical, tirst by using a cheap fuel
obtainable anywhere;   and, second, by
utilizing tbe greatest possible percent-
ngo of tho heat value in llie fuel.
The next stop was to work nut this
proplem theoretically in a thoroughly
Hclontlflc mnnnorj the next was to make
drawings  lor an engine  iu accordance
with tho tl rotical study; the last was
to build an engine according to the
drawings. Under tho circumstances, the
experimental onglno did precisely what
it was expected to do. The first oil
ii-jine over built marked aa advance
of 50 per cent, iu fuel economy over the
host existing interiial-combiistion motor.
All that was loft to do wns to adapt
ihe plan to constantly increase sites until oil engines of six thousand bono
power are now built and in operation,
.•md to elm ngo the typo from a fourcycle to a two cycle and provide a
method of reversing to adpt it to mar
ine use.
It, Should be oxplainod that whilo tho
Diesel  engine belongs to the Internal*
itnbustloh class, which makes it a first

elsewhere, it differs widely from Us

automobilistfl nro familiar with the wonderful capacity of tbo electric spark,
which sometimes fires the charge in n
gns< lino onglno, has for failing at the
very timo when it is most particularly
wanted to dn its work well. The Die
-.1 marine engine is of the twoevele
type; that is, the fuel charge is com ■
ri  sod at one stroke and fired and ex I
hausted   iu   tho  next.      lu  tho  Diesel
inglno the cylinder is filled with pure
iii* which is compressed nt ono stroke
;if  tho  piston     to u  prossuro of 500
pounds to the square inch.      The suddon   and   high   degree   of   compression
raises tho tumpernturo ut' the air in the
cylinder to a point mure than sutlicioat
to ignite the crude, oil, which is uuw injected by u jut of tiir from a rosorvoir,
supplied by an independent pump, at n
pressure B5Q pounds above that in  the
cylinder.       Tho   jot   of   oil   is   finely
divided by passing through a spool of
wire netting so that each particle of oil
is  surrounded  by  a   film  of air.      As
thoro is more thnn enough nir preseut
for combustion, and us combustion takes
placo  in compressed nir   more   readily
I ha ii at atmospheric pressure, the charge
is  instantly  uud  couiplololy  consumed,

But its special attraction for vessel

powor for one hour, while u steam on
requires 1.17 pounds of coal to do
tlio same work, An oil onglno requires
onl", :.,v> per cent, of the weight of fuel
that a Btcoin engine uf thu same eupae
ity would require for thc buuiu longth
of timo, according to - hlof Surveyor
.Milton. Dr, Diesol, himself, says his
engine roqulros only a fifth to a sixth
of tho weight of fuel thut a steam engine would. When it is remembered
thai i ship's duitblo bottom, tanks iu
bow and stern, and other places not
:i i blo for cargo can bo utilized for
carrying fuel oil, and that all tho spaco
occupied by boilers and coal bunkers
in a steamship is saved for revenue producing cargo in a motor skip, some idea
of llie advantages offered by such craft
may be obtained, Por example, if
tho Lusitaula had oil engines, she could
make the sank* speed ou -SO tons of oil
a «lny that sho now makes on a thousand
Iol*. of conl. This would make a difference of 8,000 tons in the weight of
fuel that would have to be carried on a
voyage. Besides this tho enormous
amount of space now given up to boilers
and funnels in the choicest part of the
ship could be turned over to passongers
or used for cargo.
I >r, to give more precise figures, it
has boon calculated that in a motor ship
of 5,400 tons now building for lho
Black Hen trade, 16,000 cubic feet
spaeo ia thc hold can be saved, which
oa four voyages a year would earn
$4,380. In addition to this, the vessel
would save $-,077 on fuel und $1,16S on
wages of stokers and coal-passers, making a total saving Of $8,225 a year as
compared with a steamship of the same
Other merits of tho motor ship are
that oil fuel may be taken on board
much more easily, quickly and cheaply
than coal nnd that coal trimming is eliminated. As there is no steam to
raise, the ship is always ready tu start
at a moment's notice, while there is no
expense whatever for fuel while tho
vessel is at anchor. The work is
easier for the engineers und more comfortable, too; beeauso thc engine-room
is cooler. Finally, so little fuel is
required that tho vessel can go much
farther without stopping for a fresh
supply. Dr. Diesel says that n warship with oil engines coiibl go around
the world, tight battles, and return to
her home port without stopping for fuel.
Al) the numerous auxiliaries needed
on shipboard can bo operated by small
oil engines as readily ns by steam. An
electric generator driven by an oil engine will supply current for lights, for
steering, for ventilation, for running
winches and windlass, for operating
bilge and othor pumps, while tho waste
gases can bo used for heating, and com-
pressed air pumped by an oil engine

Bod figure. Mr. Anderson was one of
the links between Uie eailv times and
the smart up-to-date  West.
It, was whon the Canadian government was establishing its sway over the
Western territory and replacing the
pnternalism of tho Hudson's Hay Company that Thomas Anderson became
crown timber agent, the leading officer
appointed to represent the government
at Ottawa, His forceful character,
combined with an athletic frame, exercised a great Influence i'i tho life of
that part of the country, and many
anecdotes nre told about him. One oi
them is well worth repeating as related
by the late Charles Lewis Shaw.
"It was iu the very early days, and
.Mr. Anderson, almost llie first, it imt
tho first, civil represent at Ive of law and
order under thu Dominion government,
was waited upon by a deputation from
Edmonton and tho outlying settlements
to inform him as a newcomer, n tenderfoot, as to the manner In which tho people desired him to conduct his oiliee.
"Various and original woro the Bug-
gestious uml instructions given by the
delegates and received by Mr. Anderson,
standing in n quadrunglo formed by the
buildings of old Hudson Bay Port.
More and more aggressive did the various speakers become, deceived by the
quiet attention paid by tho officer addressed, until one of the deputation
with an insolent drawl in his voice remarked:
" 'And see here, if this is not done,
..e'll throw you out of thc country and
do business with the government at
Ottawa direct and as wo thiuk best.'
Tho crown timber agent rose quietly
to nu athletic height of six feet two,
replaced his lead pencil in his pocket,
closed his official notebook, buttoned
his coat deliberately, aad stood before
the deputation, the embodiment of virile, middle-aged manhood, the whilom
champion oarsman of tho St. Lawrence
"'Now gentleman,' he said quietly,
'the discussion has become personal as
well as official, I will receive this deputation one bv ono or in twos nud
settle tlie personal side of the question
without any parley.'

toi i eon sen foga this is oul of tho question. Tho distance which tho fog ox-
tends seaward is not definitely known,
but it is thought that an average would
bo about ."ii miles, There are Instances
when a fog has noon reported several
hundred miles off shore.
Whether a fog appears for a few
hours at certain seasons, as on tho Atlantic coast, or regularly through the
luminer afternoons nnd tho winter
mornings, as along the Pacific coast,
whether it forms sharply defined streaks
„ttd strata, als at San Francisco, or lies
ia undefined banks, as off Newfound*
land, in either case it is duo to a cooling of air and consequent condensation
of water vapor. Tbo cooling may be
brought about by elevation and expnn*
ni or by rapid radiation or by mix
Hire with a cooler mass of air or contact with a cooler surface. Tho water
vapor condenses on minute nuclei which
may be exceedingly fine dust or possibly
The morning wilder fogs are low lying banks of condensed vapor, which, ns
0 rule, move from the land seaward
and are probably formed by a cooling
due to radiation and contact, the land
-nrfaces being much cooler in the early
morulng hours than the water surfaces,
owing to the high specific heat of water.
The summer afternoon togs are probably duo to cooling caused in part by
tvation and expansion and in part by
...xing. Pogs, as a rule, form when
cool nir passes ovor warm, moi.t surfaces, but in the case of tho fogs near
the Golden Hate, San Prancisco, whoro
the surface temperature is 55 dog. P.,
and the air temperature, at a height of
700 feet, 80 dog. P., condensation is
more probably duo to a mixing of air
currents having different temperatures,
humidities and velocities.
The seemingly unaccountable failure
of fog signals at the critical moment has
been a source of much perplexity and
serious disaster. It not infrequently!
happens that tho master of a vessel will
testify that the fog wnistlo could not
be heard, whilo tho light house officials
will maintain with equal posltlvonoss
that there wns no failure to give the
proper signal. It is now known that
both sides may havo been correct ia
thoir statements. If sound travels
through a medium, such as air, the density of which varies more or less from
point to point, it suffers a refraction, or.
in other words, the line of propagation
is not u straight lino. As a result of
this it may occur that a sound wave

partial 'emutsi Heat ion of tho fat glo
bules. It is vory difficult to subsequently eliminate the biiltormilk from such a
product, uud Ihe kneed ing operation
merely renders tho material homogeneous without sufficiently freeing it from
milk to impart to it the proper firmness. There is thus an optimum speed
for every churn, uml this must not be
departed from once it has been determined by trial.
" It has frequently been observed
also that soft butter hnd been Insufficiently washed. Abundant nnd repeated washing should be applied without
hesitation in tho churn, to remove impurities nnd thc buttermilk, For this
purpose water inny bo injected in a
fairly strong jot; this watering operation must, however, not be looked upon
as a good opportunity for cleverly introducing water into the fatty material
for a purpose which it is unnecessary
to point out. It may be just as well
to mention that it is of courso unlawful
to romody BOOftness of butter by introducing into il margarine or similar materials. Hut ter may bo hardened by
placing il in a cool place, but the torn-
perature must  not  bo too low.
"Lastly, it is well to consider whether the fault whicli wo aro discussing
may not at times bo put down not so
irs in manufneturo, but to
tho material fed to tho cow. Thus, for
lUStanco, it is well known lhat oil cake,
Indian corn, barley, rice Hour, bran, etc.,
cause the butter to bo soft. On the
other hand, vetches, pons, cocoauut and
palm cakes cuu-o the butter to bo hard.
Thus by a judicious diet the properties
of the butler may be Influenced in one
direction or the othor,   It may be well
to note, however,, that the amount of
palm or coconnut cake fed to the cows
should not exceed two or three pounds
per head."

Ho dried hia eyes and seated himself

famine of words which had so long

tho sound of his own voice, ho wont on:
I was so intent upon my work when

no opportunity for becoming acquainted with my kinsfolk thero until aftor
I had competed my studies. Even theu
I should havo lacked the money to pay
railway fares had it not been for tho
kindness of my preceptor, who put mo
in tho way ol prosperity by almost
forcing mo upon tho concert stage. You
may remember Hio trip I mado to Austria immediately after completing tho
series of porformnncos iu which I made
my professional debut. I recall that
you awaited my return, in Paris, and
theu accompanied mo to America.
After leaving you X journoyed to
Vienna, whero I spent threo happy
woeks with tho hospitable Jews of my
father's family. From Vienna I followed, into tho foothills of tho Matras,
a letter notifying tho Magyar relatives
of my mother of my intended visit.

military bearing of tho man, his unusual height, tho aggrossivo poiso of
his chin, compelled my regard. The
empty sloove. pinned to the breast of
his coat; thc up-pointing, gray moustache, waxed to sharpness at tho onds,
convinced mo of his identity.
Alighting, blithely, from the carriage,
jl approached him, hand extended.   The
immobility of his po?o, tho hostile light
in   his   eyes,   repelled   me.   My   hand
dropped to my side.

Ills faco bushed and tho big scar loft
by tho subro of tho Austrian, who laid

Tho rebuff surprised and confused me.
Dimly, it caino to tny mind that my

"Tonight, thoro is none ia me," ho
grunted, over his shoulder.
"I am learning the violin; perhaps
I might please you," X suggested. Tho
Hungarian passion for music, I hoped,
might soften their attitude toward me.

In the Canadian Century of October
21, it was pointed out that the Canadian people would expect the new goad.., something that would tako the
popular fancy and advertise Canada
throughout the world while increasing
the population nnd industries of the
country. We received, 501110 days ago,
the following telegram from W. J. Kerr,
first vice-president of the Automobile
Association of Xew Westminster, British Columbia:
"The answer to your leading editorial October 21st, is a Canadian highway from Halifax to Alberni, B.C. Tho
first convention for this movement will
bo held in New Westminster, B.C., on
November 3rd and 4th.''
The convention referred to iu tho
telegram has already lieen held and was
very enthusiastic. While we look to
tho new government to give us something bigger than this for tho advance
incut of Canada, we think the movement
for a national highway from ocean tr
ocean is a good one and well deserving
of substantial support. Sir dames
Whitney has announced that Mr. Borden has promised that tho Dominion
will assist in tho construction of roads
for farmers in Northern Ontario.
