\.e are in danger, however, of going
to the opposite extreme—in danger ot
carrying the subject o( personal iudt-
fiendeuee too tar—in danger uf neglect,
ng lome who should have a saltan celt*, danger of thinking of all men a-*
being uot only free but equal. While
we all ahould have proper freedom ut

8t. Paul said, "We cannot du the
things whicli wc would." We are
slaves of aiu and death, aome more
aud aome less, The Prophet David's
explanation applies to ua all, "I waa
sbapen in iniquity, in aiu did my mother conceive me" (Psalm li, ft).
It waa in view uf audi Inequalities
of the flesh that St. Paul wrote to Unchurch, "We that are strung should
bear with the intlrutities of the weak,
and not please ouraelvea (merely)"
(Romans xv, 1). Thia principle, tip-
plied by the Apoatle to the Church,
would certainly be appropriate and
beneficial in the natural family. And
aa our hearts enlarge we ahuuld all
come to realise more aud mure the
unenesa, the solidarity of our race—
Uie entire human family, ul which St.
Paul aays, "Ui om- blood God created
all men, to dwell upon the luce uf
the whole earth" (Acts xvil, Ail
God'a inquiry of Cain implied Cain's
responsibility, and teaches ua a leaauti
respecting uur responsibility in (Jod's
light for one another. We will begin
with the Church, the highest type of
brotherhood imaginable i We ahuuld
not be content to split into sects aud
parties. Whatever waa tlu ignorance
of the paat, which led to the formation
ol the various creeds and deuomiua-
tiona, there can be uo excuse for these
now, because Christians of all denominations have come to discredit the
old creeds. Should there not, then, be
a movement toward heart unity and
fellowship, outside of denominational
and creedal lines, amongst those whu
recognise Ood aa Father, the Lord
Jesus Christ as the Redeemer, and the
Bible as the Divine Revelation?
It Is not proper to aay as did Cain.
"Am 1 my brother's keeper?" Every
true Christian should realise that today Christianity is being assaulted in
Hs own House and by its professed
friends. In the universities, colleges
and seminariea of all denominations a
battle is raging, which threatena the
destruction of our Christian faith.
Posaibly a few are blind to the situation, but the insurgents—the Higher
Critics and Evolutionists—realise the
situation and are craftily saying to
the people, "We are the Watchmen
upon the walls of /.ion! Hearken to
our cry: All :s well!" These Higher
Critics aeetn to have no conscience.
They claim that the people must be
gradually taken by guile. They encourage them to "sleep," while they
raise over them thc banner of infidelity called Higher Criticism.
Many who ace the killing of this
antitypical Abel shirk thc reaponsi-
bility by saying, "Am 1 my brother's
keeper?" not real.ting that Irom the
Divine standpoint they have a responsibility toward every other Christian with whom they an* in contact.
They should realise that loyalty to
Ood means that ihey "should show
forth the praise** of Him who hath
' called us out nl darkueas into hia
ui.nvi-l.iii-, light."
In a word, i-vciy true Christian who
has made a full CuniecTltloii ul himself tu the Lord, lo walk in the (oot*
steps of the Saviour, should waken
to the fact that We are in a critical
time. We are in the time mentioned
by St. Paul, when "every man's work
shall be Vied to ai by tire" (1 Corinthians iii, lit). Th.- lusting trill be
alung thc lines l-uih of fit th ami ot
works, only those holding lirmly t»
"the laith unci- delivered tu the
saints" will be able to bring forth
such fruits, such good work-, us the
testings ol this hour require. Thia
clans, awake to their responsibility toward Ood and thu brethren aud the
Bible, and full of iaai therefore, will
thereby be kept in this "evil day.'
Uud wUl.bliH them in their endeavors
ai glorify Him. .,
In the days ot slavery and serfdom,

The scrub is a small hush-like tree,
anything frum lour to sixteen or
twenty feet high, growing oil light
sandy soil in a ten or twelve inch
rainfall. The Malh'e was formerly
useless even tor sheep on account of
the scarcity of grass, and the hordes
uf dlngos.   Many sheepiuun tried the
MnIIt'i- country, and must uf them
have been h.-at.-u out. It was found
that the Maiiee trees or bushes could
be rolled down by hi-avy rollers, us-

and flattened vegetation burned com*
pletcly off when dry, Hundreds of
acres can be cleared in this way in

Thia is a peculiarity o( the stumps

In his speech at the opening i*f
the forty-fifth provincial exhibition
at New Westminster, the president,
Mr. T. J. Trapp, referring to Victoria as tlit- political capital of the
province, Vancouver its the commercial capital, it ml New Westminster as the agricultural capital,
declared that the Feasor valley is thc
most fertile agricultural land in the
World. The claim is not an extravagant one. The alluvial lands of
the Frnser from Hope to the Dolt
are at least equal to any on earth.

of the British Hoard of Trade, com

President Tuft makes a statement
regarding tbe Panama Canal. He
says/'Don't get heart failure if the
first steamer passes through this
wonderful waterway in 1913 and
don't blame anyone if it is not finished before 1016, because this statement is not given out as a fact but is
based on conclusions.*1 The people
of the United States are given an
opportunity to purchase government
bonds and thereby receive dividends
which the mammuth undertaking is
bound to produce. Every person
who purchases these bonds does so mi
an equal basis, there being no preferred stock issued.
Wt* talk a lot these days about conserving our resources, There are
enough resources on the farm that
are squandered away every year to
pay a large share of the National
debt, comments tin-Canadian Farm.
Take the egg business ns an example.
Thousands and thousands of dollars
are lost every year because of the
way the egg products of thc country
ure bandied, tt Is estimated that in
the United States $46,000,000, or 17
percent, of the total value nf the output, is lost annually through improper and antiquated methods of
handling eggs, Tin- Ih-paiinienl of
Agriculture at Wosblngton a year
ngo. decided tu take itc'ie to prevent

lo make un Investigation and work
out srlii'iui-s fnr improvement. One
(-1 tin-plans ret-..mmeiided and which
was adopted by shippers was "lo*»s-
ofl" system of Inlying and selling.
Previous to the adoption of this
system, quantity rather than quality
was a handicap shippers encountered. The immediate effect of buying
on a "loss-oir' system produced such
u marked change in the quality of
the i-uk- reaching market that out
side buyers now manifest a preferem*
lut- eggs bought iu this manner
Such a system of buying or selling
would certainly have tho effect of
iKhtcIng the producer of those handling the eggs to take care that there
would la* no "loss-off" In their shipments,
On September IH, in the Broadway Tabernacle, New Vork, was
inaugurated the "Men and Religion
Forward Movement." Some live
hundred ministers and many layman were present, some of the
clergymen coining from as far away
as Australia. The aim of tho
enterprise is to "convert men to the
"course of Christianity nnd to on*
"list thorn in active church work."
Thirty church workers arc to proceed
to organize committees of 100 to 76
large and 1,",00 smaller cities of the
United states and Canada. J. Pier-
ponfc Morgan, Cleveland II. Dodge,
James H. Post, Cyrus McCormiek
and others are furnishing tho necessary funds. At tl)0 dinner given to
the leaders in the movement of the
above date.it was stated that "tbe
'terms uf trained workers will make
'complete charts of tho towns which
"tbey visit, show ing religious and
"social conditions as thoy find them,
"such as nationalities,the number
"of saloons,how many labor organ-
"izations meet in saloons on Sunday
"and whether the schools seem to
"be adapted to the 05 (ier cent, of
"boys who don't go to college."
Co-operative buying by consumers
is a system lhat lias been tested with
too much success in many parts of
Europe to make necessary foolish or
half-considered tirgtimont, With
characteristic fondness for panaceas,
we are inclined to discover in every
experiment results thut stagger (be
mind. A Western city throws opoi
the municipal park to fond vender
and immediately prices drop by ■"*"
percent. The representatives of a
farmer's cu-ujierative movement in
Pennsylvania complain of the vast
profits tbut go to tho middleman.
The latter, may indeed, take more
than lie is entitled to, but what
proof is it to adduce the facts that
tbe farmer gets only 820,000,000
for products that (he consumers pay
840,000,000 for, or that only one-
half the money paid for eggs by
consumers reaches the farmer?
Every schoolboy with a smattering
of economics, bus learned the meaning of place value and the importance of railroads. We pay four
times as much for a ton of coal as it
costs at the mine; but in the ease tif
coal the element of carriage is
obvious. It is presenl iu all commodities. Tho question is not iv hat
the difference is between Iho price
jiaid by the ultimate consumer and
the price obtained by the producer,
hut whether the profit-* of the middleman and carrier are more than
they should be.—New York Evening Post.
Before the sound of (In* building
of the Canadian Northern Railway
dies away to the north-east of Hope,
grading will have begun for the
Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern in
the valley of the Coquihalla. To
the Canadian Northern Hope will
l>e a station of steadily growing importance. To the V. V. ami E, it
will lie a junction from the first and
practically tho western terminus,
lt is learned that the company has
decided to locate its ear shops and
yards at Hope on tt site not yet determined, or if determined not an-
lOUIieed, but probably ou the west
side of the Coquihalla. As is well
known, the V. V. ami E. will not
parallel the C. N. R, between Hope
and Port Mann, but will run over
the C. X. It. tracks, connecting
with tbe limit Northern system
again at the southern approach lo
ihe New Westminster bridge. The
gap to lie tilled is between Hoih-
and Princeton, where, at different
limes, no fewer than four routes
have been surveyed. The Coquihalla route, however, hits beeu definite
ly decided upon nnd ll e netiinl
work of building tlm mud-bed will
begin next Spring us early as
practicable For nearly tho whole
of tho work Hope will be tho base
of supplies and headquarter.'*.. J.
II. Kennedy, chief engineer of tlTe
lino, who hits been ou I for some time
with a survey party, arrived in
Hope Tuesday nighl and left for
Vancouver Wednesday night. The
completion of tho lino will give
Hope direct connection with tho
cast and south and will open a big
rich territory in the valleys of the
Cot'tiihalln and Tulameen, and all
will Im tributary to Hope, There
will lie a direct and substantial increase iu the permanent population
f the town. Some employees of
the two   railways   will   no   doubt
boose to reside here and it will remain the. headquarters for the V. V.
id E. link of the Groat Northern.

The sports of the valley who do nut

number of outsiders came iu with
dogs and a full equipment including
wire cutters for use in removing

carelessness for tbe sanctity of the

the matter in band and insist a

Facts About a Little-Known Spot In
thi   Empire.
Ocean Island lies only 52 miles
mulli uf the equator, nud in lull rush
d( the equatorial current, which.
itrcaming across lha mid-Pacific from
east io west, runs past the island with
s varying strength ol from one to three
miles uu hour. From the early years
of the last century tlio island was i
well-known calllug'Dlace for wlialing
ships, which cama-Hne're to buy "hogs «
and to diversify the monotonous sea
rations of their year-long cruises. Hut
although these visits were no doubt
(airly numerous, says a writer in
Blackwood's Magaxlue, any lengthy
stay nt the Island must always have
been Impossible, since there is no anchorage at which even a modern full-
powered Steamer can lie with any degree of safety. .Steam must be kept
up all the time so us to leave at a
moment's notice, even though these
vessels are moond to the splendid series n( buoy* which arc now within two
cables length of thc reef and iu 20s
fathoms ol water.
There are Ht present 475 aboriginal
inhabitants, the remains ot a population which only forty years ago numbered over 1.000; nnd they aru the
owners of an island which, although
only 1.500 acres in extent, had a total
trade with the Commonwealth of Australia alone valued in liMW at £314,000,
and whioh In lhat year exported one-:
twentieth of the whole world's supply,
ut phosphate. Probably no richer ls>]
laud of the same fixe exists; I am
sure that there Is none mure curious.
I first visited the place in 1996. and
found it in the occupation of a purely,
native community. All communication]
with   the   outer   world   was   then   ro.
striated to the occasional visit of .V
Sydney steamer, which called in passing to buy shark tins and tails for
export to China. The day was fine,
and the sea (for Ocean Island) slight,
and I well remember the natives com-,
ing off iu their canoe with bundles
of shark flns, nnd their extreme anx»
lety tu exchange their murderoui*look«
ing spears und .-.words edged withi
sharks' teeth for glass bottles, with1
which I suppose they shaved them*;
selves and cut each uther'a hair.
The men were n tine athletic race,
wonderfully clever in managing their,
outrigger canoes, and rather dark in*
color when compared with the Gilbert]
Islanders, the result of their constant1
exposure to the equatorial sun white!
fishing, clothed with but a scanty kilt
of grass or pandanui fibre. Ttuy spuko*-
the purest Qllbertlne, and are beyond'
question members uf that race; their
tattuoiug closely resembled that of the
Gilbert Islanders, with whom I wasi
well acquainted. Since the current'
was strong, aud it wus impossible for
us to anchor, thc vessel flood "off
and on," while the barter of shark
fins for "trade" was in progress, and
I only landed fur a short time at tho
village of I'lim, on the southeast cor-
ner of the island, at a spot protected^
to some extent by a point of the reef
upon which an enormous ocean swell'
was breaking. I little thuughl as I
walked about among the curious natives, followed by a troop of delightful-looking clamorous children, that
under my feet luy wealth beyond thu
dreams of avarice, and that in 13
years' time I should again visit th-j
island, to find railways, electric light,
and telephones installed, and to sea

to carry away the very ground on
which I stood. Iu 1806 thc last white
