One of the most successful, if nol
the most successful meeting held
by the P. S. A Society, wns thnt of
Sunday afternoon, when about one
hundred nnd sixty men gathered ill
tbe Lyric Theatre to hoar the ad-
drtsi by Itev. It. J. Douglas, As
previously announced, tho title
chosen was "From Messenger Boy|
tu Premier," and ninny were the
cogitations ns to which Premier
reference would   be   mnde.    Not  n
, few were surprised on learning that
the life of Jiiscpb, tlic shepherd boy,
who became second in authority to
Pottphar, was the subject of tho address. The manner in which this
was handled reflected great credit
on tiie speaker who   held  the  rapl
.attention of his audience /mm Start

(bid to Thee'' wus most ably render-
ed by Itobt. Cnriuicbnel, and rcociv-

COMMUNICATION.
'I'., ihe Editor—The Rev. R .A.
Fordo, on Sunday lasl officiated for
the first lime as Rector, elect of
: lio-cdale. He preached an interest-
: ing and appropriate sermon, taking
for his text ihe introductory sentence "In ihobeginningGod created,
tho heaven and the earth." The
discourse had reference to the
journeys of the children of Israel
bis address being one of a course
whicli he proposes to preach ou the
subject indicated. Briefly stated,
the lesson submitted to hi" congregation was that, in weal and woe,
we should as nu.. Christians and
believers, always bear in mind the
origin of all things, the Creator ol
thc Universe, who orders everything
for our good, although we may nor,
like  the   Israelites,   r gnize  that
solemn fact, especially when tribu-
I lutiun overtakes us. The setvicfj
was belli in the public boil. It is
I to be devoutly hoped that the
j residents of that quarter, who are
i members of the churcli of England,
will unite in making every effort to
I retain Mr. Forde's services, in bis
[good work. I understand that the
district is not sufficiently weahhv
| to support ti clergyman without as-
Isistauce elsewhere. If thl" be n>,
it appears to me, if I mav so -»g»
;gest, thai the Mother Chraeh .ir
Chilliwack might devote ta ■>(■
foi'tory from time to time in aid
I of her daughter, the poorer parish.
| Until the latter becomeself-sirpput*-
. ing.   One fact i" clear that  "the
laborer is wnrtby of his hire" and
that a Rector should not, under any
circumstances, In- invited to undertake the work in a parish, tiniest
the people are prepared to muin-
i Iniu him in a manner due to his
sacred calling and dignity ind
make provision for tbat purpose.
At least, a reasonable sum should
iioguaranteed annually for h'u. hoard, •
I bulging and clothes and a moderate
! amount for petty expenditure.

BURIED TREASURES
Yon remember tlie story of tho old
uian who When lie was on his deathbed, called his sons to him and told
them that it great treasure was buried
on   the  farm.
After he died the sons dug that
form deep, from one enu" to the other,
finding m gold or silver, they planted
it aud in the Autumn they discovered
what the old man meant. The treasure was there, bul its name was Digging and  planting.
Then you, no doubt, remember another story of an old man who, on his
deathbed, called his sons to him and
told thom to try to break a number
of sticks that liu the story) lay near
the bed. Tliey oould not do it, but
when the oltl man told them 'o* untie
the bundle and try each slick seperate
jly, Ihey broke them without trouble.
And the story goes on, making the
old man say:
"Now hoy;, if you work together,
BO one can overcome you; but if you
quarrel with ono another and seperate
it will be as easy to break you as it
is to hn-ak one stick: Irom the bundle."
i Which, in its way, was n fortune
for the hoys.

'you have not heard, it Is also nboul

Whether on account of nn attack

a lit of lilncs, or a s|icll of indisposition it matters very llttlo, so long as
we are hero again with our joys and
sorrows.
When sick nml fed with allowances of milk one has visions of liy-
gone days, when llie   bottle  represented the sta IV of life, and  talking
f milk reminded mo of a question
heard relating to  this  important
article of diet.
"Is ii compulsory tor Dairymen,
in the wholesale or retail business
to guarantee the milk supplied to
lie pure and unadulterated, clean,
free from dust and other impurities,
and in a suitable: condition lit for
use as food for infants and invalids,
and for tho general purposes to
which it is applied?"
. .
We bear quite a lot and read
more, about regular testing amongst
the Dairy herds, and 1 believe tho
ranchers try to select only the best
animals, as a result of this work.
But is tlm testing tlic end of it. all?
Docs tho necessity for clean, hygienic
and well ventilated barns enter into
the details of the business. What
proof have customers (I s)ieak of
the whole valley) that they are being supplied with the genuine article,
and obtaining full value for money.
To drink milk and find a thick
sediment of dirt remaining at the
bottom of the glass is scarcely conducive to the nation!'s rapid recovery, Even should ihe person lie
in good health, there is small satisfaction in knowing that a percentage
of impurities may have accompanied
llie milk iu its downward journey!
Should the boys and girls of our
schools bo given home work to do?
Ask the parents and the opinion
RUty be divided. Ask the teachers
and tlieir actions prove tlieir
opinion. Ask the kiddies themselves and the consonus of opinion
will be a firm negative. With
all due deference to lliosc who
think otherwise 1 should cast in my
lot witli the youngsters this lime.
. *
When children take work
home, the usual Way is for the
parents to do the teaching and their
style cannot lie altogelher in line
with that of the teacher. The
children must have a healthy,
strong, vigorous hotly, to be able to
develop an intellectual brain, and
in my way of thinking, the homework partly prevents the possibility
of sullicicnt recreation to produce
this desirous condition.
. .
j    In a  community  such  as ours,
too, the boys and girls are called
111*111   to   |B-I'f.,| III   quite a     lot     of
chores and domestic duties, and the
lime fm- play and freedom from all
:cares and worry is, in sonic cases,

A TRIP TO PRINCE RUPERT AND GRAHAN : a boat huilding yard and we saw n
ISLAND ' tine sailing boat on thc stocks built
  ; of yellow cedar, and  Hearing completion.     There     arc     altogether
Leaving PrincoRflpcrtatfivon.nl. about fifty buildings in thc Village
by the ti. T.   P. Steamer  "Prince land a few of them arc set   back  on
.John" a good seaworthy boat about  short side streets.    The whole makes
two hundred feet long and accomodating about -10 lirst class passengers.
We steamed  west   through  Dixon
Entrance past   several   islands  en-
route for Graham Island.
We sighted Prince of Wales Island,
the most southern portion ot Alaska
about nine a.m.   There was a nine
fresh breeze blowing and the water
was just roughened enough lo make
sailing pleasant. We were entertained for some time watching a few
small porpoise darting ahead of us
right under llie prow of the vessel
and crossing and rcorossliig each
other, coming to the surface nml
living again, easily keeping abend
or catching up after allowing the
boat to pass thom, though we were
steaming a good ten knots.
Afler a while about ten a.m. we
sighted the low coast line of (Irabain
Island on our Port, bow, with I»w
Hill rising up on the north east
comer of the Island, tin- land
seeming to spread out from south
to north, as we approached nearer
Rose Spit whieh runs out from the
shore to the northeast, runs shallow
for some miles out ami necessitates
boats keeping it long way to tin-
north until nearly opposite Masset
Inlet.
As the Prince John calls at Xaden
Harbor on the same trip and as a
bar exists at (lie mouth of Nation
Harlmr, the steamer according to
state of the Tide, visits Masset lii-
forc or after N'udcii. In our case
Xaden was called at first and we
entered this pretty land locked
harbor about 12.80. After steaming slowly iu we arrived at McKcn-
ziu and Mann's whaling station and
pulled into the wharf where we saw-
dead whales moored at the .Slip,
and crossing the wharf to the Sheds
we were asaileil by a combination
fo live or six different scents each
one a poem in itself, together n
magnum opies of no menu strength.
It was however an,interesting sight.
Some men (all .laps) were hauling
a dead whale on to the wharf with
its hide sinsncd into longitudinal
ribbons, others cutting up with cross
cut saws one already skinned, and
stashing and chopping it with huge

settled down over tha wnler, which
seemed lo come as a  gl'cnl   surprise
to the old   timers.     As  il   seemed
dangerous to proceed any further iu
Ihe fog, we decided to camp at   the
mouth of a   lillle  river called tho
Nadu whicli was close hy and where
thoro  was  a big   closed  in   shed,,
open partly al thc top and used  as
a camping plnce   by   lllc   Indians.
We soon had the camp fixed and  a
good lire built in the"kccntrc of  the
shed, the smoke going out through
thc roof.    After  we  had  partaken,
of a good  meal  of canned  meat, j
canned fruit and hard tack, washed
down with hot tea, wc smoked and
talked,   but  soon    unrolled    our
blankets and stowed away  for  the;

AN AERIAL WARSHIP
Zeppelin Airship Co. Turning Out
Monster fpr German Army
A great aerial war vessel Is being
built for tho German military authorities ot tho Zeppelin Airship Company's works at Frledrlkshatcn. Undeterred by the long series of cuUs-
trophies which haa overtaken steer-
,\blo balloons of almost every description, tire German Wur Office Is continuing Its strenuous, endeavors to
build an aerial navy which will glvo

the air, nnd the now cruiser will ho
larger and more powerful Ihan any
aerial vessel yet built exclusively for
mlllliny purposes. She will, In fact,
be only olght yards shorter than the
monster passenger airship Sohwnben,
recently completed by the Zeppelin
Company,  and   will  bo built  on   lho
same general lines.
The main dWeit'iicc will he llie absence of the huge passenger car,
which Is swung   amidships   on    ihe
iSchwabon, and which on the military
vessel will he dispensed with. Tho
extra margin of lifting power thus ac-
quired will be utilized lo cany tho

horsepower each. She will he propelled by  font' screws, two    at    the
■stern being four-hladed and two
mounted over the forward car being

The vessel Is estimated to attain n
nominal speed of about 4r. miles nn

Education Better Than Cash
Don'l let tbo boya ro to work merely
because the first excitement of money
earning is on them. Don't, let them
heedlessly sacrifice themselves lhat
your own burden may be a trifle lighter. Your family is standing still when
you do tbat sort of thing and not progressing as a Canadian ftimlly ought
to progress. Look to tbe future of
your boys, not to your present ease.
Tbey do not realize what they are
missing but you do—especially tf you
bave missed tbe higher education
yourself. Tbe evolution of tbe family is one of the finest things anyone
can play, und it is one in which anyone may take a band. Bettor hold to
the old ideals and keep the boya in
school. Your self-respect will increase
If you do. and the harder It Is for you
to do.it. the more satisfaction you will
have from your achievement.

Bolivian Production of Tin
Iloiivia produces one-quarter of the
total tin output of the world. Recently lis tin sold for $1,000 a ton. The
wealth accruing to tho Andean Republic front this source would be a
simple arithmetical problem If this
price was constant. Fortunately during tho past two years the vaiae of
a Ion of tin htm never gone much below %'.<v. nnd at that price the Bolivian tin miner Is assured a good profit, despite  the difficulties of trans-
\ portution.
Certain  economic factories operated against the highest exploitation of
, tin in Bolivia, especially the necessarily heavy freight charges, tho de-
(pendonee on the price of Straits tin,
!the export duty and the fluctuation
of the Bolivian money. In tlmo moBt
of these handicaps will be overcome
nnd the proceeds ot the tin miner of

Beware of Matchmaking
Matchmaking Ik a dangerous business. Literally it is so. foi these little light-makers often burn their own
fingers. If a mistake Is made the
couple ore apt to blame the persons
who brought them together and led
them Into matrimony. To recoro*
mend anyone for a husband or a wife
[8 a very responsible business, and lt
Is as n rule, best lefl alone.

This new Winchester is reloaded by recoil,

wonderful in operation and powerful in

An Innovation in Oil Heaters
The Perfection Smokeless Oil Heater, with its
drums enameled in turquoise, is an ornament to any
room, -whether in the country or city home.
No home is quile complete without a Perfection Oil
Heater. It is a necessity in the (all and spring, when it is too
warm to start the regular healing apparatus, and too cool to be
without heat. In the midst of winter it is often convenient as
an auxiliary heater, as there are always some cold corner*
in a house.
The enameled heater always presenl. a nice appearance,^ ai ihe
enamel will not tarnish or bum off. It ii nol an "enamel paint," but it
ii the tame ai the enamel ot your cooking utensil..
The Pcrfcclion is the most reliable and convenient portable heating
device you can find. An automatically-locking flame spreader prevent!
turning the wick high enough to smoke.

Queen Kllznbclh of Belgium la thirty-live .veins old, ber birthday, July
26, being celebrated by her admiring
and grateful subjects ns a public holiday. This Is due to no royal decree,
but  Is  entirely  a   voluntary   mutter.
,nst yeur nt Ibe queen's request those
who wished to pleuse her donned a
red celluloid rose, whlcb wus sold for
a trill lug sum. The money from tbe
sale of Ihe roses was set aside us a
fund for lighting the white plague.
Queen Elizabeth, who Is a princess of
Bavaria and clever and learned, like
all lbc members of tbls remarkable
royal bouse, takes a grout interest In
the cumpulgu ugalnst tuberculosis.
She is herself a doctor of medicine und
frequently visits the bosplials, wblcb
are her favorite charities. Queen
Klir.abetb's plan for raising a tuberculosis fund was so successful Ibal
sbe bus announced tbat this year ber
(lower will be tbe edelweiss uud tbnt
It is her wish that all money derived
from Ihe sale of Ihe flowers on her
blrlbduy be applied lo lluliliitg tbe
sleeping sickness1 lu the Kongo, where
Ihe hue Kiug Leopold left the nation
Immense possessions.
Queen Rllznbetb Is the mother of
two sons, ono of tbem tea and tbe other eight years of age. She haa a
daughter, Princess Marie, who Is five
yenrs of age. The queen personally
superintends thc education of her children, even to teachlug ber eldest son,
who has a talent for music, to play
upon the violin.
Since she has been In Belgium sbe
bns Irlcd lu every way to promote Ihe
welfare of the people. Her Interest In
ediicnllon and all good works Is not
restricted to permitting tbe use of her
mime as patroness for these ntove-
incuts. She contribute! money nnd
takes a personal part In the good
work. No wonder llmt the good people of Belgium, nfler Ihe reign of Hint
selfish old worldling. King Leopold,

It. Ills evident perturbation was snf-
Iclont f.r her nmuaement. Then she
relumed lo tho subject of Benson.
"It doesu't seem to mo you're treating Joe quite right In that Benson matter, Enoch." sho remarked nfler a Utile pause. "Tho very Idea of your furnishing tbat mnn capital to go Into
business across the street from yonr
•wn store! It's all vory well for you,
because you will have n share of profits either nay, but what aboul poor

"Yes," echoed Joseph, wide eyed,

"Knnch Cheever!" shrieked Madge
Suddenly. "You nre not eating tomatoes ufter what the doctor said}"
"I'llllet" snorted Joseph testily. He
Was thinking of his brother nnd the
wily Benson, who bad once been tbelr
bend salesmen and who wan noxious
lo start another shop lu competition
with hla former employers.
"Enoch Cheever I" cried/Madge once
Inore, "The very Idea of your speaking to me tn lhat manner! If you do

lo father to come up bere!"
"Why-why. what did I say)" de-
•landed Joseph, uncomfortably awnr*
that ho could net face, unflinching.

Chester's father.
"Ton said -pine.' and you never used
Inch an expression before In your Itfs

talks to poor Ada Hint way. hut I

Mary entered the room at that mo-
Vent, and while she removed the
llshes snd plnred the dessert beforo
Kir inl.tress there wns nn iinenmfortn-
• silence between Mrs. Enoch ihee-
*»r snd ber mlsehlerons brother In-
ke.
•Tben tber were alone Joseph sail
meekly: "I apologize, Madge, l was
really thinking of something else."
And then, wltb a sudden accession ot
dignity, he added: "1 think you are
mistaken ubout Ada, I nm sure Joe
doesn't net like such a brute as you
suggest."
Madge tossed ber blond bead. "1
kuow whut Ada tells me ln coult-
detice," 'sSe said loftily. "I am sure
that she Is sorry sho ever married
your brother,"
"Sorry - she — ever — married me—
him?" asked poor Joseph, aghast,
"Vou know she had lots of chances
to do better," pursued Mrs. Enoch
Cheever couipluceutly. "Joseph Is
nice looking, und ho wouldn't be that
lt bo didn't look so much like you
Enoch. But ho Isn't clever ono little
bit, nnd you know Ada adores cleverness lu a man."
"1 suppose so," admitted Ada's husband, neglecting his pudding.
"That Ned tnurloson—you remenibor
Hie fellow who was so wild about
Ada's dark blue eyes? Well, you know
lie went on lho singe nfler sho refused him, nnd ho tins become n great

think she still feels it sort ot—or—at*

Mliilgo smlli-d fondly nt Joseph, who
ultinngod ti sickly gtiu in response.
"1 dare say sho does," he suid gloomily. "Sort of Blonder, willowy chop, l
suppose." Tho Cheever brothers wero
liii'lliied lo stoutness, with thinning
liulr ou top of tholr hind bonds.
"Ho bus an ndornblo llgure," gushed
Madge, suppressing n desire to glvo
wuy lo laughter, "and lho thickest
wavy balr and"—
"And n thick bond, too, I'll warrant,"
blurted tho Indignant Joseph, forget-
ling his role.
"Why, Enoch, dear, nre you Jealous?
f nm not In love with Ned t.uttrloson
even If Ada-oh, well, we went, to tbe
mullnco yesterday to see him. I wlsb
you could huve been there."
"I only wish 1 could hnve been

his wrath nml pacing the floor.
"1 enn feel lho thrill thnt shot

heroine," murmured Madge wltb a faraway look lu her eyes.
"I could puss him a few thrills that
would put blm out of the show business for good and all," growled Joseph, Jerking on tils gloves aud reaching lnio the hall for bis hut.
"1 don't see any reason for your losing your temper ovtt. your brother's
affairs,'! complained Mrs. Enoch. "I
nm euro If Joseph only treated Ada
balf as well as"— She paused slgnlO-
cnntly.
"Half as well as—what?" demanded
Joseph Impatiently.
"Half as woll as you (rcat me,
Enoch," said Enoch's wife with shining eyes. "If you could only talk to
Joseph t aui stiro that"—
"Talk to him. madam! I'll read blm
n lesson he'll not soon forget." And
Joseph Cheever. for once stirred out of
bis easy going ways, shot out of the
door and Into tbe down dropping elevator, hopped ou a ear and went to
lho appointed rendezvous wllh bis
brother ut their club.
After lbc door had closed behind blm
Mrs. Enoch Cheever threw herself
down ou o couch nud laughed until the
tours rolled down her cheeks. Theu
she went to tho telephone nud called
a number.
In the meantime Mrs. Joseph Cheever hnd passed through a similar scone
with her brother-in-law, for she had
deceived Immediate news of tho mixed
identities from her sister-in-law before
the Enoch Cheever tlluner wus served.
"Well, Adili" a very much perturbed
Enoch was saying, "1 am sorry you
feel called upon to pity my brother's
wife, hut Mndge has always seemed
to me to be a happy woman."
"But of course, dear Joseph, you
hnve never known of her teuderuess
for Ned Lnurleson. ihe actor. Poor
Mndge! 11.in so sorry for her. And It
does seem too bnd. Josepb. that you
should havo entered Into that questionable deal wllh Benson ot this time, for
It Isn't fair to Enoch, as I said before,
i.ud"-
"Womun." Interrupted Enoch solemnly, "if there Is uny peace lu the world
hold your tongue! 1 am going out to
settle several mutters and will not get
borne till late."
He disappeared as rapidly as his
brother had doue In another apartment
s short while before and Jumped on a
car for hi. tinh. There he met Joseph
In one of (be smnll writing rooms, nod
Ihe two brothers, who hnd never disagreed since their childish quarrels,
now glared at each other fiercely.
"What's ibis about, Benson?" .put-
lorod Joseph threateningly.
"That's Just what I wns going to
ask you." retorted Enoch. "And do
von know Neil Lnurleson. the actor}"
They stared nl each other, bewildered, not ot flrsl comprehending the
situation Then a great light broke
over Joseph's face, and he nluppcd bla
slice.   "Slung!" he yelled excitedly.
When Enoch hail gathered the Import
of tho attention he fell Into a Turkish
ro.ker and gasped for breath. "And
they hnd It all cooked np between

Enoch as lho Iwo, much relieved of

"What can we ntfortl lodo. Josepb. now

Is It possible tnr an eastern woman
to enjoy western education ond training ami rcuiiilu characteristically oriental? This Is a question frcqiicuMy
asked hy Europeans Interested In the
education nud progress of eastern women.
To see Dr. Yomel Kin, China's first
! womnn  doctor,  and,   better  still,   to
' hear her speak In perfect English of
I ber hoiies for Iho further progress ot
Chlneso women, Is to answer the question In the affirmative.   Dr. Ynm.-l Kin
stands for the well balanced oriental
woman,   familiar   with   tbe   science,
learning and methods of the west, but
losing none of her own nationality.
Sho Is typically Chinese ln appearance. Thero me the pale complexion,
the dark bulr, Iho small dark eyes,
twinkling with fun. Small In stnturo,
but alert nnd active ln body and mind,

Women's Medical college. New Turk,
' now merged Into Cornell university.
! The years spent in  tbe  west  hnve

': command of tlio English language and
a knowledge of medicine and surgery.
j She does not approve of all she has
heard and  sccu, but she recognize.
I that modern science ts tho greatest
j gift of tho west to the east today.   Ic
