■■ Bnssnho, Alta. This dam is being erected by the Irrigation Department of
i thr Canadian Pacific Hallway to divert
water from the Uow River Into the
mult) canal of thc cast section of the
Irrigation block, It will consist when
completed erf an earth embankment on
|the BOUtli bank of the Bow River, and.
a reinforced concrete spill iu the existing river channel, connected ut the
northerly end with the canal bead-
gates. The river is approximately (100
feel wide ul this point, its south hank
ihit*.ing it gravel beach several hundred
foci in width, at the thickest part of
the base, containing approximately
one million cubic yards of earth,   ljs
1 upper surface will he paved With
boulder concrete or reinforced concrete
i The total length of the weir will be
nbotit six hundred feet, another construction will be about THO ret In
length between abutments. Tbe
overflow cresl will ho at n maximum
i height or forty feet, above which elov-
leu feet of water will be retained by
'structural steel gales.
i The spillway will contain aboul
40.000 cubic yards tif concrete, and

Women s Secrets
There is one man in the United States who has perhaps heard
snore women's secrets than any other man or woman in ths
country-   These secrets are not secrets of guilt or shame, but
the secrets of suffering, and they have been confided to Dr. <-^
K. V. Pierce io tbe hope and expectation of advice and help.
That few of these women have been disappointed in their ex-
pecutioa* is proved by the fact that 98 per cent, of all woman
treated* by Dr. Pierce or his able staff, have been absolutely
and altogether cured.   Such a record would be remarkable if
the cases treated were numbered by hundreds only.   But when
tbat record applies to the treatment of more than balf-s-mil*
lion women, in a practice of over 40 years, it is phenomenal,
■nd entitles Dr. Pierce lo the gratitude accorded him by woman, as tbs first of
specialists in tbe treatment oi women's diseases.
Every sick woman may consult us by letter, absolutely without eharge.

Recently an Indian was hauled up
nnd lined for leaving liis horses ui-
proteoted from the cold for several
hours, while others came near to
contributing to the city funds in
like mi'.nner, Opinions are diverse
as to the justice in fining the Indian,
snme even claiming that while the
Indian was lieing fined there were
animals belonging to some of those
connected with the enforcing of the
law, which stood out in part of the
same storm. This may or may not
be so, but the point is, where is the
farmer, be he white or brown, going
to shelter his horses while in the city.
Some say go to the church sheds.
.Many do go there, and while the
churches do not close tlieir gates to
such, yet these sheds were not constructed for general use, nnd the
heavy rigs cut up the yards so badly
thai ou Sunday it is difficult for
church uoers t.i get their horses out
or into the sheds without doing a
mud wading stunt, which mud in
Hun is carried into the church, besides being very inconvenient to the
church goer with his extra glad rugs
ou for the Sunday occasion. A
suitable public sheil should be provided, ns has been suggested to the
Free Press by an old resident, theeost
of its erection ami maintenance to be
paid I'm' by the Municipal and City
ICouncils. That suvh a place of
shelter bus not. been provided long
before now is it strange fact. The
erection of such ii place would lie
la very practical way of showing interest in lho propor caro of man's
great friend and sei'vuiit—the horse,
j Provide a place of refuge and none
will have any excuse for leaving the
burse unprotected from llm elements.
The City Council met in the
Clerk's office on Monday evening in
regular session, all the members being present except Alderman Ashwcll.
A communication was read from
0. W. White, of Victoria, regarding the establishment of public
municipal libraries. Received and
The claims of Mrs. (1. \V. Chad-
sey re compensation for trees and
plank walk was dealt with. The
amount of twelve and a half cents
per lineal foot for sixty five feet of
plank walk wasallowed. ThoCouncil
did not consider the city responsible
for trees removed as same were on
sidewalk allowance.
The question of teams and wagons
driving over sidewalks was brought
up and Chief of Police will be Instructed to enforce the City By-law
prohibiting the same.
The dispute re the payment of a
piece of walk on Mill street was settled by Alderman Jackson agreeing
to pay the amount in dispute, some
84. 80.
The Kire, Water and Light com
niittce rccommonded the placing of
a hydrant at the corner of Charles
street and Yale road and report
was adopted.

the Clerk's ottice on Monday next
nt ten a.m.
An account from Duncan Halt was
considerably reduced before pay
ment was ordered.

ported tbat he hnd received no

tbe lighting system nnd also that he
had again  written.

Coronation Stone Said to be the One

by Moks and thai form it flowed the

visitors tn Westminster Abbey more
-than usually*keen tn >?ee the corona*

;ir incloses.
The Archdeacon preaching ln Hie
Abbey, stated that u well known art*
Uf|uary. who had made a special study
of the history connected with the
stone, was convinced thut it wt&s Uie
:;:(;n;' on which Jacob rested his head
when he had the vision or angels al
Bethel, and that front that night it was
: considered sacred, and carried from
place to place. lie believed It wais
this stone that Moses struek, and tliat
it was carrlod by *hy Israeli tea during
their forty years of wandering,    lie
|showed me a big cleft In the hack
from whloli he believed Ihe water
gushed out." The antiquary traced the
stone front Solomon's temple to Spain,
thence to Ireland, thence lo Scotland,
then to Weetmitiflter.
I Only the front and sides of Uie stone
could he seen by visitors to the Ah*
'bey. for the top is hidden by the aeat
ctf the coronation cbth* for an Inspec*
jtion of the back. To appearance, it
la a piece* of jwarllsli-gray ruck, oboul

Whatever Its onvly history, there U

DurltiR the summer of 19— Constance
Phillip*, nu ii rt student, chose tha
Coast of Maine for a Held lu which to j
paint pictures, There Is un Island on
thst const which hus been made pre-
eminent nitiutig Its neighbors by a
celebrated authoress, who loeuted one
or her stories there. Harriet Beocuct
fil.iwo's "I'eurl of Orr's Island" has
llCOJI read liy million., of her fellow
eiiiiiilrynien, tin", familiarising them
Willi al least the ilnint! of the locality,   j
Miss Phillips, being albue, slopped at
a Kinull hotel near the homo in which
Mn. Btowe wrote het' Btory. Ill tint
iflOruUig nfler breakfast she wuuhl
inl...  her  nrtist's  paraphernalia  uud
stiirl out Iu search of n scene to trans*
fer to .-iinvas.    Hut she found niitlilnn
uf the marine ordor thai pteaaeU her
inure thnn the vlow looking eastward
from tbo lower ond nf the island. De-1
scowling un incline, she fouud herself
Jusi ui.ove a rocky shore overlooking
A strip of disco bay. There nlio sel i
up her easel uml. embracing 111 tier
subject n lilt nf the rucks and a bit of
tlm ocean, began her work.
Constliucb painted all the mornlnc.
but unfortunately her shinty in trans-
ffcr to cnnviis whal she saw was not of ,
B Ill's'!! order.   I.Ike muny aspirants for
success In art, she felt It. but was un-
Bhle   lo   express   It.     What  she  had
placed on the canvas disappointed her.
Bhe was looking at her work ruefully |
when she beard a step behind her and, .
turning, saw a man descending through
the wild grass and weeds.   As be puss-
ed tier bo lifted Ills cup und, costing a
glance i.i her picture, paused, looking
from it In Us subject.
"Von have selected quite an attrac- :
tlvo view," he snld.    "Tour dlsertml-
nbtion  lu this  respect Is pnved  by
your having chosen tbe best there Is
"1 fear It Is all discrimination," said
Constance,   viewing   her   work   lugu- I
"You mean that you are not gifted
-With the artistic touch!"
"1 fear 1 am not"
"A   good  desl  depends  upon  that I
which for the want of a better word ]
I shall call tbo trickery of art   There !
are all sorts of methods of producing j
effects  which,  though  In  themselves
mechanical, tend to snccessful painting.   Judging from thin bit of work, 1
fun T you bave something to learn ln
this respect."
"Por instance, this bit of rocky clIT
Is depicted against tbat wood across
the   water.    The cliff is  of a  dark
brown, tbe wood a dsrk green, two :
durk substances, the one directly be-
hind tbe otber.   You must make ono
cf tbem  of a  different 'shade from
what lt Is.   The rock, being In tbo
foreground,   Is   Ibo   most  Important. ,
You havo got Its color to perfection. '
Tbe wood, being distant, would bear
more  blending  wltb  Its neighboring
objects.     It   will    bear   lightening,
•which will darken the rock."
Constance mixed some colors on her
palette, gave the wood beyond Ibe
rock a dab and wns quite pleased with
the Improvement The rock stood out
boldly, while the wood appeared at
Its proper distance.
"Are you a teacher of art'/" she
"1 have taught art bnt 1 do not
teach now. I am Interested at present
In regaining my physical strength,
Which Is somewhat run down.''
Consttince noticed thnt he wss rale
snd thin. Ills eyes, whlcb were large
and eipresslve at auy time, seemed
more so in his Invalid condition. She
thanked htm for bla suggestion nnd.
removing her canvas, folded ber easel
and Iter Btool, put her palette and
paint tn her boi end wna starling
sway when the stranger said:
"Have you to carry those things
"To tbe village, about t mile up tbe

He took up n pnrt of her belongings
Hvhlle Blm carried the rest, nnd they
walked together up n llttlo pnth to one
of those summer collages containing
only beds, chairs nnd cheap tnblcwiire
which city folk rent either for n few
weeks In summer or for "the senson."
There was a broad porch ou three
sides uf It, and Its occupant, setting
down lho artist's materials on tbe
porch, wild:
"They muy remain here till yon return In tbu ufternoiin. and if you don't
ronio again today 1 will take ihem In-
rtde and keep tbem for you till you
need tbem."
"You nro very kind," Constance ro-
plled.  "Do you llvo here all alone?"
"For tho present. I go back to tho
city, curly In September."
"I will rollovo you of my belongings
about 8 o'clock this afternoon,"
"If It Is not necessary that yon
•cork all day 1 would advise you aot
|o do so,"-
"WoH"-he looked up at the sky foi
a reason and fouud ono—"In the morning wo are fresh and can do our best
work. Besides, when we have Jusi

"No, you can't. Aod ln the morning
when you ure fresh you will know I
just what It requires. You see, thai

ways than one."
Constance left hliu and, striking a
disused road through Ihe pines, walk-j
ed uwuy toward liiit-iiswell village.
After dtnucr Instead of going back to,
her work she look a slestu snd Inter I

I.nst evening 1 wns disposed lo throw

I um very well sntlslled wltb It."
"Perhaps It Is liecause you ace II

Constance look her picture down to
Iln- position i'he liiiil occupied thu day
before and began her day's work. Sho t
was again disappointed. It scorned
to her when noon came that her pic-
lure looked much as II hail done (he
day before. She carried It up lo tlio
Btrungor's cottage, lie saw her coining
and went out lo meet her.
"1 fear Hint I have spoiled II," she
suid lo lilin. "This morning It was

"Put It away from you again," he
said, "till tomorrow morning."
"I will leave It with yon till to-

he replied, "but when we are In Its
tolls there is a kind fairy called rest
tbat unwinds them, und when we are
refreshed we take bold again with
renewed vigor."
So Constance left her picture with
her new found friend, went to ber
room and lounged the rest of the day.
In the morning sho found her picture
again set up in an advnntngenus light,
and again her dlssallsfactlou wilh It
of the dny before was changed to
Day after dny Constance worked on
her picture, every morning comforted
by its appearing to ber to be improved
from what lt was the dny before,
every noon fearful lest she bad lost
more than sbe bad gained. The
stranger tuiigbt her many a "trick," as
he called It by wblcb objects wero
liroilgbt to their relative [K-Jltton ond
striking effects produced. One thing
sbe knew—taken altogether, the picture was renlly growing Into something beautiful. Sbo believed that
what sbo was doing was due entirely
to a subtle Influence ber Instructor
exerted over bere.
During tbts time tbe summer was
fading Into autumn. The water ond
tbe sky took on s cold line, nnd tbe
cottsge residents of Orr's Island began
to return to ihelr permanent homes.
Constance finished ber painting and
wns delighted wltb It She was surprised at ber talent
Constance's Instructor told her that
tf she would take her picture to a
prominent nrt dealer In Huston he
thought she would get n goud prlco
for It. He snld ho would meet her
there on a certain dnte and Introduce
ber. On tbe day named she took her
work to the store, but her Instructor
tailed to meet her. She showed lbs
dealer the picture, and he aludied It
"Did you point Hi" he asked.
"Certainly,   Why to you nsk thai?"
"Hecause I would have swum thai

Taking up a smsll microscope, hs
brought it lo bear on u lower corner.
"I. Is an Billot," he snld.
"What do you menu?" exclaimed tha
astonished Constance.
The denier handed her the microscope, nnd she brought II to bear on
tba picture. There sbe saw "If. Klllnt
"Who I. Prank Klllot?" she asked.
"Our i>rlii<-lp..t American murine
painter just at present."
"Where does he live?"
"Nowhere.    He's been tning to regain his health ut Orr's Island, I believe."
|   Constance was dtimfouiided.
"Whnt value do you place npnn (tin
i picture?" she asked.
Tbe denier pondered u few momenta,
then said:
"It Is worth about $1,200."
"(ioiidness gracious!" exclaimed the
girl, her brentli quite taken nwuy.
At thnt moment Constance's Instructor walked Into tlio shop.
"Hello. Billot,'* snld lha dealer.
"Heen trying to fool luo ngnln. bnre

African   Birds  That   Lead   Men to the
Nests of  Bees.
"For many ages/' says a writer, "the
smnll birds which art* known In A fri- I
co ns honey guides have been iu the
habit of leading human beings lo the
nests Of bees. The first notice of the
kind of whieh I have knowledge is lu
'Lobo's Travels In Abyssinia,' published by Le Grand In 172S. 'The moroc
or honey bird,' Bays this author, 'Is
endued with n peculiar Instinct or faculty of discovering honey. When the
moroc has discovered any honey he repairs immediately to the roadside and
when he sees a traveler sings ami
chips his wings, making many motions to invito him to follow him, and
when he perceives his coining Hies boforo him from tree to tree till he coined
to the place where the boos havo stored their treasure and theu begins to
Ring melodiously. The Abyssinian
takes tho honey Without fulling to
leave part of tt for lho bird lo reward
him for his information.' span-man,
who traveled at the Cape In 1775-70,
gives also a very good description of
tho bird as observed In the southern
pari, of the continent
"The honey guides lend human beings to the uosts of wild bi-es not so
much for the honey as for the grubs
or larvae found within the comb. The
natives are for thc most pnrt well
aware of this fact, and If thoy reward
the honey guide, whicli they usually
do to some grudging extent, break off
for It a piece of the comb In which the
grubs nre batching. Sparrman has a
curious note upon this detail. Ilo Bttys,
'I was Informed by my bosblesmcn
(bushmen), ns well us v>y lho colonist.1?,
that 0 man who makes it his constant
business to go after the bees ahould \
not at tlrst be too grateful nnd goner- |
ous to this officious bird, but leave for
it only just as much as will
stimulate Its appetite, by which means I the other side is white satin witb

Harry I-. Paddock, United Stales consul at Amoy, China, writes). "Tbo Chi*
neflo farmer Is tip before daybreak and
ot work In his sterile lields— fields
whose productivity has been exhausted
eieept under high fertilization. He re*
turns to his little shanty after nightfall. To lho view of the foreigner he
never rests, ami for this ticver ending
labor ho raises a crop of rice or corn
that does not support his family for the
year. His clothing consists of n loin
cloth In summer and a coarse cotton
suit In the winter. Farmers, like all laborers and artisans of China, work
hard to live. Laborers earn 10 cents u
