The Municipal oiliee is now
graced by a new outfit of oiliee
furniture. A line table for llie use
ol the Council ami Clerk, a spacious
desk, swivel chairs, and olher
furniture give lho olllco a thoroughly up to date appearance.   Tho nl.l
crcscut shaped table which has done
service for so  long   is  absent  and
visitors to the oiliee miss it prompting of the question iu tbc  mind  of
"why."    There is snid   lo  lie  an
interesting story connected with the
history of this piece of olllco decoration.   More anon, perhaps.    Tlie
accommodating and genial clerk  of
the Municipnlitv, Chns. W.   Webb,
betrays at once his delight and satisfaction wiih Ids new surroundings.
The Free Press mini  called  at the
offlce Tuesday, ami found the clerk
actually sending a pressing  invitation to every proporly owner iu the
valley to call on him before December III of this year, when Ihey  will
have the delightful experience of
passing over a certain  amount of
the coin of the realm or its equivalent,  amidst surroundings   which
will  give  them  one of the   most
pleasant sensations of   thc   year.

A Pretty Weddn*
A quiet but pretty wedding took
place here Wed. at one p.m. at the
resilience of Mr.  Wm. II. Walker,
the brides uncle.    The   contracting
narties were Mr. II. C.  Puttee,   son
of Dr. It. P. I'attei' of llawkeshury,
(Int.. and Mi-* Jeasla lsal>ell.s It,.itl
youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
.lames W. Rnltt.ofEdmonton, Alta.
The home was decorated in beautiful
and artistic taste,  with sweet peas
andastorsliy Mr.C. Muir, representing the John McLeod   Nursery Co.,
of Kast Chilliwack.   The ceremony
was porformed in the drawing room
which luul been transformed into a
fragrant   bower,   und   tlic   bridal
party entered to the strains of the
wedding maroh beautifully rendered
by   Mrs. (Rev.)   R.   .1.    Douglas
The bride was given  away  by  her
father, and looked very dainty and
pretty in her wedding gown of pal-
lettc  silk,  and  carried  a   shower
bouquet of asparagus fern and roses.
The ceremony was performed by Rev.
It. J. Douglas, in the presence of the
immediate relativesiindnfcwfriends,
after which a sumptuous wedding
dinner   was   served.   The    happy
couple were the recipients of many
beautiful ami costly  presents from
friends here and al Edmonton,Alta.,
llawkeshury, Ont., and Lachute, I'.
Q.    The groom's gift to the  bride
was a cameo brooch  studded   with
pearls.    Mr.   and Mrs.   Puttee left
immediately after dinner on their
wedding trip tss the  Coast  and  on
their return will reside inChilliwnck.
The bride's travelling costume was
of cream serge trimmed with green
iiiiii hat to match.
On Thursday Inst tho Chllllwaek
Creamery started making ico cream
and ico, tho latter being until this
year ureal luxury 111 Chilliwael;, the
absence nf whloli was often regretted
by the thrifty housewife, Frum

in tho neighborhood of $6000. The
Ico cream freezer operated by steam
motive power, is also of lhe latest
design and tho first day, I'orly gallons
of Ico cream was made as a starter.
To taste this ico cream is to acquire
a desire lor inure and a good demand
will doubtless be fouml by tho cream-
cry for their pure ice cream.   Tho
milk anil erenin cooler bus nlso been
installed lliis year and  is u  greal
assistance to the delivery of  cream
and milk iu proper condition at its
destination,   When milk and cream
is brought to the Creamery it is
weighed, put ill large vats and pasteurized from where  it is  run and
forced up to a position at the top of
the cooler, which consists of tiers of
copper pipes covered with tin.   Tlic
top tiers ure tilled  with cold   wuter
and the bottom ones, over  whicli
the milk passes last with a cold brine
between (I and l"t  degrees,   so thnt
when the milk and cream is allowed
to pass over these from the top down
to the receptacle al the bottom it is
cooled to a temperature between 40
and 45 degrees.    It is then allowed
to run through taps into milk cans,
they lieing taken to lhe cold storage
room where they are ready fnr shipment.    On the day the Free  Press
representative wns   kindly   shown
through the Creamery by the genial
manager, Mr. W. K. McLeod, abnut
12,880 pounds of milk and over 1000
pounds of cream were -hipped from
the plant.   The priee of these two
dairy products has advanced nearly
forty per cent for the producer in
about a year anil a half, thus making it a very profitable thing for the
rancher to dispose of bis cream and
milk to the Crcamory.
TWELVE REASONS
For Supporting the Local Oil, Gas and Coal
Proposition.
(I) ll means (he development
of the Natural resources in ymir
own district.
L'l) The prosperity ol lho whole
menus the prosperity of tho In-
diviihiul, thorefore you will bonellt,
(:i)   Tl ontrnot between lho
Company and lhe Stockholders  for
THE CITY COUNCIL
is explicit   arid
ar   is  he    spent
in     Chilliwack
Chilliwaek  Field
snfe.
(I) Every ilol
in actual work
dial i id.
(5) The slock is tho common
Btpck of the company nml bouollts
by success in the company's holding tm matter where they are
loealcil.
(li) The engineer's report is Incontestable evidence of good pros-
pucts, and recommends immediate
investment.
(7) The amount required by
the Company dues not amount to
!-(! of 1 per c_nt of the present land
value of Chilliwack Valley. Success
means adding at least 85,000,000
1st the value of the lands in the
district. Tlie blanket formation of
the valley places the same value
all lands in the valley, as a prospective oil field.
(8) The Company hold their
lands under leases anil have no
claim on the surface. As these
only amount to 1-0 of the total
ureas iu event of success, other
companies will immediately seek
holdings, thus the market will  lie
timulnleil and prices advanced.
(!l) Oil or gas means an industrial centre, increased markets at
your door and factories with payrolls
for the city.
(10) Money is being taken out
of the valley daily for the building up of other cities and districts
both in Canada and tho United
States. Your own community is
lieing starved for funds in consequence.
(11) During drilling operations
the district, is being freely and
effectively advertised all over the
continent.   You will benefit.
(12) A small investment cannot
cripple you and has every chance of
winning rich prizes Imth directly
and indirectly; very little more is
needed to ensure thc drill lieing
started. Be public spirited for
your own advancement.
The Cily Council held n short session nn Friday evening ut which the
four Debenture By-laws voted on
that day were finally   passed.    The
subject of amending tho   Liquor

that tlic drainage afforded was a
necessity.
Win. Young, through his solicitor
Mr. Ewen, claimed 81000 damages
froni the city for alleged false artest,

Yates A Hunley, who run a bus to
tlie ferry from the city, thought
they should not lie asked to puy n
license of 85 per year for so doing.
Tlie Council could not see the proposition in that light. Livery anil
automobile licenses were also a subject of discussion.
Mayor Waddington stated that he
would lie absent in Vietoria for a
week and appointed Aid. Gervan as
acting Mayor. While in Victoria
tlie Mayor will secure lulvicc on the

Tho Milan exhibit had opened up n new
channel for speculation. If Saxon's
pictures were being pirated and sold

whom suspicion would fall more naturally tbun the (unscrupulous St. John,
Marston's factor in Paris. Steele
vaguely remembered the Englishman
wiih his petty pride for his stewardship, though his own art life had lain
In circles that rarely Intercepted that
of the Marston cult even at Its outer

John to desperate means of self-protection.
Tin- conversion of tho rooms formerly occupied by Marston Into a school

At all events. It was lo this address
that  Steele   directed   his   mossag '.     ItS
purport was to inform St. John that
Americans, who bad only a short slay
In Paris, were anxious to procure a
Marston of lato date, and to summon
him t" the Hotel Palais d'Orsay for
Hn- day  of  their arrival  there.
When they reached the hotel, he lold
ihe girl of ids plan, suggesting that It
might lie best Cor him to have this
interview with tho agent alone, but
admitting that, If -sin* insisted on bo-
Ing present, it was her right. She
elected to hoar tin* conversation, and,
when St. John arrived, he was con-|
dueled to tho sitting-room of Mrs. Hor- j
ton's suite.
Pleased witli the prospec! of remunerative salts. Marston's agent made his
entrance jauntily. Tho shabblness of
the old days had been put by. lie was
now sprucely clothed, and in his lapel
ho wore a bunch of violets.
His thin, dissipated faeo was adorned with a raklshly trimmed mustache
and Vandyke of gray which still held a
fading trace of lis erstwhile sandy red.
His eyes wore pale and restless as he
stood bowing at the door. The afternoon was waning, and the lights had
not yet lieen turned on.
'Mr. Steele?" he Inquired.
Steele nodded.
Si. John looked expectantly toward
the girl in the shadow, as though
awaiting an Introduction, which was
not forthcoming. As he looked, ho
seemed io grow suddenly nervous and
III-at-ease,
"You are Mr. Marston's agent. I believe?"    Steele spoke crisply.
"I havo thai honor since Mr. Mars
ton loft Paris some years ago. You
know, doubtless, that tlie master
spends his lime In foreign travel." The
agent spoke wuh a touch nf self-
importance.

■•It will be difficult- perhaps expensive i,ut 1 think it may he possible."
si. John spoke dubiously.
Steele's eyes narrowed.
"l am noi requesting," he announced,
"1 am ordering."
■•Uut those canvases, my dear sir,
represent tin* highest note "f a master's

and you dlroci me to procure (hem as

Steele walked over to the. door. and.
planting his hack against tl.' panels,
folded his arms. His voice was de-
llberate and dangerous:
"H's not worth while to handy lies

work, and moan tn sell thorn at the

position to prove lhe swindlo, nnd to

St. John hnd at the firs! words Stiffened with a sudden flaring of British

"No. im!" The Englishman's voice
was charged wiih genuine terror, and
the hand that in- raised in pleading
protosl trembled. Mis carefully counterfeited Bprlghtllness ot guise dropped
awny, and left him an old man, much
broken,
"1 will tell you ihe whole story." he
went on. "It's a miserable enough tale
without Imputing such evil motives as
you suggest. It's a shameful confession, and 1 shall hold hack nothing.
The pictures you saw nre Saxon's pietures. Of course, 1 knew thnt. of

mil that possible. I knew thai, if onco
I palmed off ibis Imitation as genuine,
all Ihe art-world would laugh tu scum
ihe man who announced Hie fraud. Mr.
Soxotl himself could lint hope in persuade the critics that lu* had dono
(hose pictures, once they were accoptod
as Marston's. The art-world Is led like
sheep, it believes there is one Marston, and lhat no other can counterfeit
him. And I knew that Marston himself eould nut expose mo, because I
know that Marston is dead." Tho man
was ripping nut his story
detached sentences.
Steele looked up with
eyes. The girl sat llstenlti
lips parted,
"You see—" ihe Englishman's voice
was Impassioned in its bitterness—"I
am nd shielding mysolf. I am giving
you tin* unrelieved truth. When 1
determined the fact of his death, I devised a scheme, 1 did not at tliat time

is as his ambassador. Men believe me.
My daughter—" the man's voice broke
—"my daughter lies on lier death-hod.
For hor, thorn nre a few months, perhaps only a fow weeks, lofl of life.    I

police, you will kill her. For myself.
It would bo Just, hul I am not guilty
of harming -Mr. Saxon, nnd she is
guilty of nothing." The narrator hailed in his stoif, and covered his face
with his talon-like lingers. St. John
was not a strong man. The metal of
his soul was soft and without temper.
He dropped into a chair, and for a
whilo, u^ bis auditors waited in silence,
gavo way to his emotion.
"I tell you," bo groaned. "I have al
least boen true tn one thing In ilfo.
I have inved my child. I don't want

Suddenly, ho rose and faced the girl.
"I don't know you." ho said passionately, "but I am nn old man, 1 am an

more steadily,

I followed his development, and I hesl
uini to announce ihe death of Marston.   .Nn idea began to dawn on me in

tiiis man's work might bo profitably

was  vory   foggy—my Idea- but  1 fell
lhat iu ll was a possibility, al all
oventB enough to be thought over and
so 1 did nol announce lhe death of
Marston. Then, 1 realized that I could
BUpptoment the Marston supply with
these canvases. I was timid. Such
sales must ho cniitloitsly made, and
solely lo private individuals who would
remove the pictures from public view,
Al last, I found those two which you
saw al Milan. 1 felt lhat Mr. Saxon
could never improve thom. 1 would
take lhe chance, even though  1  had to

I could realize enough from these to

might have a chance to llvo, I bought
the canvases in New York in person.
They havo never boon publicly shown

I thought it was an American Croesus,

had talked rapidly ami wilh agitation,
Now, as lie paused,-#ie wiped lho moisture from his forehead with liis pocket-
handkerchief.
"I havo planned tho thing with the
utmost care. 1 have had no confederates. 1 even collected a few of Mr.
.Marston's earlier and less effective pictures, anil exhibited them beside .Marston's hesl, so the public might compare
ard ho convinced in its idea, tbat the
boundary between the master and the
follower was the boundary between the
sublime and the merely meritorious.
Thai is all. For a year 1 have hesitated. When I entered this room, 1
realized my danger. Even In the growing twilight. 1 recognized the lady as
the original of the portrait."
"But didn't yon know," questioned
the girl, "that sooner or later the facts
must become known- that at any tlmo
Mr. Sax n might come to Europe, and
see one of his own pictures as I saw
the portrait nf myself in Milan?"
St John bowed his head.
"I was desperate enough to take that
chance," he answered, "though I safeguarded myself iu many ways. My
sales would invariably ho to purchasers
who would tako thoir pictures t-
private galleries. I should only hav<
to dispose Of a few at a time. Mr
Saxon has sold many pictures In Paris
under his own name, and does not
know who bought tbem. Selling them
as Marston's, though somewhat mor
complicated, might go on for some time
—and my daughter's life can nol last
long.    After that, nothing matters."
"Havo ynu actually sold any Saxons
as Marstons heretofore?" demanded
Steele.
St. John hesitated for a moment, and
then nodded bis head.
"Possibly, a half-dozen." lie acknowledged, "to private collectors, where 1
felt it was safe."
"l have no wish to be severe," Steele
spoke quietly, "but those two pictures
we must have. I will pay you a fair
profit. Tor the time, at least, tho matter shall go no further."
St, John bowed with deep gratitude.
"Thoy shnll he delivered." he said.
Steele .stood watching St. John bow
himself out. all the bravado turned to
obsequiousness. Then, the Kentucklan
shook his head.
"We have unearthed that conspiracy," lie said, "but wo havo learned
nothing. Tomorrow. I shall visit the
studio where the Marston enthusiasts
work, and seo if there is anything to
bo learned tliere."
"And I shall go with ynu," the girl
promptly declared.
CHAPTER XVIII.
(in an unimportant cross street
wliieli cuts al right angles tbo Boulevard St. Michel, that axis of art-
student Paris, stands an old and somewhat dilapidated house, built, after the
same fashion as ail its neighbors,
about a court, and entered by a door
over which the concierge presides. This
house has had other years in which
it slood pretentious, wllh tho pride of
a. mansion, among its peers. Now, Its
splendor Is tarnished. Its respectability
is faded, aiu) the face It presents Io
the street wears tho gloom tliat cornea
of past glory, heightened, perhaps, by
tin* dark-splrltedness of many tenants
who have failed to enroll tholr names
among the great

of lingering dignity. A plate, set in the
door-case, announces thnt tho great
Marston painted here a fow seam
years ago, and hero stin that more-or-
less- distinguished      instructor,     Joan
Hautecoeur. tells his pupils ill the second-Hour atelier how It  was done.
He was telling Ihem now. The
model, whn had heen posed as "Aphrodite Rising from the Foam," was rest
Ing. She sat nn the dilapidated throne
amid a circle of easels. A blanket was
thrown nbout her, from the folds of
which protruded q bare and Shapely
arm. Die hand holding lightly between
two lingers the cigarette with which
sho beguiled her recess.
Tin* master, looking about on ihe
many Industrious, if not Intellectual,
faces, was discoursing on Marston's
feeling for values.
"He did  not   learn  It"  declared  M.
Hunt ur; "bo wns born with It   Hfl
did not acquire It:   ho evolved  it,    a
faulty value caused him puin us a false
noto causes pain to the true musician."
Then, realizing that this was dangerous
doctrine from tho lips of one who was
ondoavprlng to instill tlio quality Into
others, born with loss gifted natures,
he hastened lo'amend. "Vet, other
masters, less facile, havo gained by
study whal  they  lacked  hy  heritage."
TllO room was bare except fm* Its
accessories of art. A few well-chosen
easts hung about the walls. Many unmounted canvases were stacked in the
corners, tho Hours weie chalk-marked
where easel-posit ions bad been recorded; charcoal fragments crunched underfoot wlu-n one walked across the
boards. Prom tin* sky-light- -for the

wni Intched. The students, bizarre and
unkompl in ihe bohemlanlsm of their
i uii, mixed colors on their palettes as
Uny listened. In Ihelr llttlo world of
narrow horizons, tho discourse wus like
n prophet's eulogy nf a god.
As the master, his huge figure somewhat grotesquo In lis long, paint-
smeared blouse and cap, stood delivering his lecture with much eloquence of
gesture, be was Interrupted hy a rap

"Someone wishes a. word wllh M.

The master stepped importantly into
the hall, unit Steele introduced himself,
M. Itauto* ur declared  thai  he quite
wii remembered monsieur ami his excellent painting, lie bowod lo made

"Mr. Hubert Saxon," bogan tho American,   "Is.   I   believe,   one of  (lie mosl

both friends oC Mr. Saxon, and, while un
in Paris, wo wished to visit tho shrine
of ilu- Marston school. Wc have taken
the liberty of coming here, is II possible lo admit us?"
The instructor looked cautiously into

ninihj had not resumed her throne and
nudity, (ben Hung hack the door with a
ceremonious    SWeep       Steele,    familiar
with such surroundings, cast only a
casual glance about the interior. It
was like many of the smaller schools
in which be had himself painted. To
the girl, who bad never soon a iife-
claSB at work, it was stepping into a
in w world. Her eyes wandered about
the walls, and camo back lo the faces.
"f have never had the honor of meet
ing your friend, Monsieur Saxon." declared the instructor in English. "Bul
bis reputation has crossed the sea! I
have had the pleasure of seeing several
of liis canvases. Thoro is none of us
following* in the footsteps of Marston
who would not feel his life crowned
With high success, had bo come as close
as Saxon to grasping the Bccret that
mado Marston Marston. Your great
country should be proud of blm."
Steele smiled.
"Our country could also claim Mars-
Bton.    Tour forgot that, monsieur."
The instructor spread his hands in
a deprecating gesture.
"Ah. mon ami, that Is debatable.
i True, your country gavo him birth, bul
it was Prance that gave him his art."
I "Did you know," suggested Steele,
I "thnt some of the unsigned Saxon*pictures have passed competent clitics as
the work of Marston?"
Hautecoeur lifted his heavy brows.
"Impossible, monsieur." he protested;
"i|Uite Impossible! It is the master's
boast tliat any man who can pass a
painting as a Marston lias liis Invitation to do so. HO never signs a canvas-it is unnecessary—hii stroke—his
treatment—these are sullicient signature, I do not belittle the art of your
friend." he hastened to explain, "but
thoro is a certain -what shall I say?
--a certain individualism about the
work of this greatest of moderns which
is Inimitable. One must Indeed bo
much lhe novice to hv misted. Yot. I
grant you there was one quality the
master himself did not formerly possess which tho American grasped from
lho beginning."
"His virility of touch?" Inquired
Sfeclo.
"Just so! Your man's art is broader,
perhaps stronger. That difference Is
not merely one of feeling: It Is more.

spaces—of tin- broad spirit of your

absorbed, morbid, anemic. To he the

"yet. the kilter pictures of Marston

"Precisely. 1 would in a moment

theory. Since leaving Paris, I believe
Marston has gone perhaps into the
Alps, perhaps Into other countries, and

The girl spoke for Ibe first tlmo, put-
ling, after the fashion of the uninitiated, tbe question which the more learned
hesltato to propound!
"Whnt is this thing yon cull the
secret? What is II lhal makes tho

"Ah. mademoiselle, ir I knew lhal!"

as usual at a window, looking absently
out on Iho court.
In Its centre slood a stone Jardiniere,
now empty. About it was the (lagged
area, also empty. In front was th

warmth of tin* spent summer, made a
vague appeal to animal instinct; possibly, the tlrst ray of mental dawn was

heavily, and made his way Into the

At last, he wandered t«> the street-

a smile. It |s ihe universal word with

SoXon   looked   up.   and    across   th

He opened his thin lips, closed them
again, then smiled, and said wllh perfect   distinctness:

ONE C.P.R. PURCHASE
A Nineteen Million Dollar Order
and What it Means
The Little Path
By LOUISE DEFOREST SHELDON
In these days of big Iliings, When
people talk of millions where their
grandfathers spoke of thousands, tbc
fact tbat (be Canadian Pacific Railway Company has ordered 12,500 additional freight oars ami 800 more locomotives may not attract more than
men passing attention, except amongst
railway men. And yet Ibis order Involves an expenditure of the Immense
sum of $10,000,000~-the freight cars
costing $14,000,000 and the locomotives
$5,000,000, This is a pretty big amount
for any railway-even one like the
C.P.R.—to spend at one time In additional equipment, especially when costly sleepers and diners or passenger
coaches of any description whatever
are not included.
If figures are seldom amusing, thoy
are sometimes entertaining, and this
latest purchase of the C.P.R. furnishes
a few facts that ore of more than ordinary Interest.   Here aro some of tbem:
The length «.r a freight car from
buffer  to  buffer  iti  S'.t   feet.   Its   weight
37.000 pounds and its carrying capo-*
city   80.000   pounds.       The    length   of
those locomotives from pilot to buffer
or the tender is aboul *>:• feel, and
its weight. In working order, 176 tons.
Each tender curries 5,000 gallons of
water -nul lit ions of coal. Each locomotive Is of Ifi.oou horse power, aim
tan haul oil the level at least 75 ears.
or on an average of 50 oars over tlie
whole system, String these ears iu
one long line and they would reach Q
distance of .'- miles from Montreal
more than half-way to Quebec.
The 13,600 freight oars would make
up _f»0 trains, and If thoy were to
start, say from Calgary, at Intervals
of one hour, running on a regular
schedule of SO miles an hour, nearly
ten days and a half would elapse be
tween the dispatching of ibo first and
of Ihe last (rain. When the last train
left Calgary, there would bp a grand
procession from the Rockies to the Atlantic and 5,000 miles out on Its depths

practically reach around one-fifth ui
iho globe The distance from Calgary
to Montreal Is 5,251 miles, nnd lbo run
would occupy four and a quarter days
If lho ears were unloaded prompt ly,
the lirsl train could reach Calgary, OH
the return trip, two days before tho last
olio hud boon dispatched east.

reminded him, reproof in her eyes, "and i
Beth was always tho naughtiest,"
Father laughed again. "Wo should;

"There   sbo   is   now."   mother   said
eagerly,   "I hear the bell."
j    In another minute Elisabeth herself

I How sweet  you'ro looking,  mammy—1

She smiled, looking around. "How
old-fashioned mi this furniture begins'
to   seem!       Itut    I   love   ll."   she   added
quickly, lest she burl iheir feelings.
Mother saw her glauce'iip at th.- handsome lambrequins she and fathe.' had
bought so many years ago. "We have
sonu- new window-hangings, too." j
Elisabeth said -"groen art-cloth. They
make our living-room so attractive. I
think window-hangings really make
more difference than anything else--!
Just as :t woman's hai does!"
Suddenly lur eyes began to shine—I

more closely, then hurried out of the

Tho front door closed. Tho house
seemod appallingly unlet to lhe two she

hnlf darkness. The groat clock In the

mother spoke—without turning her
head.
"She has gone home, father dear.
She   has   left   our house   lo   go   homo."

"All the ardor of our young love, the

She  leaned   bor cheek  against   i

Then ho bout toward her eagerly,
"Dear," lie said, "in lhe beginning,
When it was only you and I, wo wauled

"Ves," she said softly, "lovo was enough."
lb- bent nearer, the eagerness still
in his voice: "Then camo tho fulness

We were doing the things they're doing now—living and loving and working and rearing our children. And now
Hint is done, Little Mother, aud over,

There was a pause, then their eyes

A   Journalist   Tells  of  the  Advantages
of Keeping Nerviline Handy
Q On the Shelf
Fifty years ago Nerviline was used
from coast to coast, and in thousands
f houses this trusty liniment served
the entire family, cured all their minor
Ills and kept the doctor's bill small.
Today Nerviline still holds lirst rank in
Canada among pain-relieving remedies
—scarcely a homo you can find that
loesn't use it,
Prom Port Hope. Ont., Mr. \V. T.
Qroonaway, of the Guide newspaper
•sit'iiT. writes: "For twenty years we
have used Nerviline in our home, and
not for the world would we be without
it. As a remedy for all pain, earache,
toothache, cramps, headache, and dish-red stomach I know of no preparation so useful ami quick to relieve as
Nerviline."
i.ei  every  mother give Nerviline a
trial;  it's good for children, good for
Id folks    ymi can rub it on OS B liniment or take it internally.

MATCHES
Some of the smaller conveniences of
todern life seem so natural and indispensable to us that it is not easy to
think of tho time when people had to
do without thom. /
Not ono century has elapsed since
matches wore invented, and before
them tlio flint and steel were used in
lighting fires and lamps.
The ilrst matches were about six
Inches long, tipped with sulphur, and
caughl lire easily from the spark of the
flint. Iu 182") an elaborate apparatus
called the "eupyrlon" was In general
uso in the cities. This was a large-
mouthed bottle containing BUlphnrfic
aold soaked in fibrous asbestos, and tha
matches; which were about two •
long and sold for twenty-five '.-'.'nts a
box, were tipped with i chemical combination of which chlorate of potash
was produced. But the icld ras Locoi_-
tho end of the match was dipped into
the acid and rapidly withdrawn rtre
was roduced. But th-- acid woe inconvenient, the matches wore Likely ■ ■ m
spoil,-,| by damp. ;ind tho eupyrlon wu
soon discarded.
In 1S3_ the tirst friction match ivu
made to be pulled through l pleas I
sandpaper and ir was Jokingly 'jailed:
a "luelfer." Loclfers wor" subsO-iit-r
ally the same as our present nffllfthiw.
The only changes lince then sate wai
in altorlne it from a silont to a numy
match and in the invention of t&S
safety-match, which will ignite only
when rubbed upon chemically Dr»pa_*»if
paper.

EDITORIAL   COMMENT
Several hundred catalogues from
nn eastern mail ordor house arrived
at tin' Cliilliivack Post office lust
weok. Good citizens will consign
these to lhe IliuiH's. This valley
will novor progress an iota by its
citizens patronizing concerns ol this
kind. Not the most iiiliiiitsimnl
part nt the money sent to these
concerns ever conies hnek, directly
indirectly. They roup where
they do imt sow. Individual need
in times of distress and misfortune
finds im response, nothing is sold
unless wish is paid in advance, A
paltry sum nmy be saved the purchaser nt the time, but it is n ease
of "penny wise pound foolish."
Your homo City is the city for you,
nnd to ynu it should bo the brightest
spot iu the unniverse. It is Inline
nnd should receive enthusiastic support. Ynu live hero beoliuse von
like the place nnd the opportunity
is here presented for earning 11
livelihood. Bo loyal to the home
town, for the snnie reason that you
would be loyal to vour home and

A NURSERY FOR CHILUWACK
Following material development
comes naturally in new cities the
aesthetic aspiration, ns pioneered for
yenrs in Vancouver by the parks
board and more recently exemplified
by the formation of such organist
iitions as the City Beautiful association. And following the aspiration
again come those who are equipped
with the ideas nnd material to give it
expression.
Hence the new British-Canadian
company of landscape architects and
nurserymen now in process of formation which will make its western
Canadian headquarters iu this city,
the lirst company of its kind to turn
its attention to the Dominion.
One of the moving spirits of the
new company is Mr. R. Mawson
Mattocks, who is one of the greatest
nurserymen in England, employing
over 300 men in his gardens near
Liverpool. He is n nephew of Mr.
Thomas H. Mawson, the landscape
architect who reported on Stanley
park of this city recently.
Another director will lie Mr. W.
P. Bull, K. C. of Toronto and Urn-
dun , n distinguished Canadian jurist
and still another, Mr. M. A. Hep-
worth, of Huddersfield, England.
The Vancouver headquarters of the
concern will be at the offices of Mr.
O.K. MacLean, the well known local
landscape architect,   an  engineer

ladies should wenr only while hair—
the color supplied by nature being of
no importance—the operation of put-
a tiriff on tlie powder mado special arrangements necessary.
These took the form of a special
room or cabinet and in,evory house of
any pretention a small chamber was
set aside Cor the exclusive use of powdering the hair. A ourtatn divided in
the middle, a powdering stand to bold
the bowl of powder, and possibly a
stool, were all that lho closet contained, nnd through thla curtain the lady
whose head was to be powdered protruded her head, tho maid standing on
the other side and throwing the powder at her head by means of n powder
puff. To preserve the eyes and complexion a mask was hold lo the face.
Unfortunately, no Illustration of a
"pandering closet*' seems to huve been
preserved.

Of men, if one can Judge from the CttUS*

"Most of tho men who oppose universal suffrage think women wnnt to vote

If they would look at themselves in tho

It would seem to bo Juit a llttlo questionable whether Anna Shaw radiates

of her utterances from lime to tlmo, It
would not seem unfair to compare hor
to a cold, drizzly day In onrly Bprlng.

With the Horses
A PLEA FOR THE HORSE
By Lena B. McMtcken
The horse is one bflhe most useful
domestic animals and is also the most
abused. Then- is an almost startling
affinity between a boy and a whip
and 1 fear in many cases, lids characteristic applies also to boys "f a larger
growth. .Many members of the "gentler" sox, from whom one would naturally exp.ci consideration for tne
faithful   beasts   before   them,   are   He
worst   offenders,    Continual  nagging
and .jerking will spoil a goml horse
as quickly as It will a child.
11 makos lha lean of a horse lover
ache io see ihe cruelty practised upon
horses, in our cltlos, especially. Row
many times do wo see 0 boy Jump into
.1 delivery wagon and bring the cruel
"rawhide*' down upon the flanks of
the poor, old spavined cr0atU(S lietween tho shafts,   (generally the spirit
tins   1 11  crushed   out  nf  it  by  yours
of this sort of treatment. A cruel Jerk
of the reins brings the old fellow back
on his haunches, then he Is lashed
again for lying back in tbe shafts, and
so It goes, over hard pavement and
stony road he is driven at tho top of
his broken-kneed speed, and if he
dares to Humble, lie Is Jerked and
whipped again. The Ul*jkept harness
galls his poor old buck, the bit cuts his
poor old mouth, nnd tils poor old legs
pain him Intensely, but go ho must
for some "ludy" has forgotten lo ordor
some dainty, until almost loo late, nnd
old Dobbin must pay the penally.
When ono considers how well n
horse repays (In better work, better
appearance and longer yours of service), tho cure expended upon It, it Is
amazing that more ownors do not
realize this fact.,
If I can't appeal to you ownors and
drivers tn the name nf humanity, then
let mo entreat you In tho "blessed name
of expense-" Do you know that by
properly caring for and feeding ynur
horse,  If ho is well, and  giving hhn
qareful treatment by a skilled veterinary practitioner if he in sick, that you
can prolong the years of usefulness
of ynur animal, and thus ho money in
pocket lu ihu end; also you will know
that you have done your duty to one
of the most useful animals alive.
Even a vicious horse may be tamed
by persistent kindness and good treatment, The nexl lime you go near that
"had one" take an apple or a piece of
sugar with you, coax him to eat It
und pat him gently and above all, remember that one of the greatest instruments In laming a horse of his
nature is Hie human voice. Speak
gently to him always and some tlmo,
when your life depends upon the effect
of your voice on him, you may bo
pleased and gratified to find him obeying lho familiar tones. Of course, this
kind of treatment must he given indefinitely, in large doses tempered
with firmness. A horse soon takes advantage Of over Indulgence.
It lakes ;i llttlo mure tlmo and
I nm lile, perhaps, but oh, when ymi
see him slep away ns If 011 velvet,
when you feel Iiiiii respond as a sensitive machine, lo ybur every mood,
ymi will nol rogrel It. What pleasure
greater Lhan io sll behind 0 woll-
brokon trotter, on a good road? When
an oapeclally tempting son piece pf
roud cnnics nnd you let him mil Into
his tun stride, yon wouldn't change
places with a king, and when you sail
pnsi  Hi hor "fellow's" cranky, m-
brokou nag, you an- as proud as lhe
gonorul of a victorious army.
Fow horsos reach the age of maturity   WllllOUt   giving   evidence   Of  defects
of om> kind ihat would pass for unsoundness in iln- judgment of the
horseman. Docs tills unsoundness incapacitate the animal for breeding
purposos? The question is easily asked, evorybody has his own answer,
and probably nothing that can be said
ul Ihls time will change very much
Ihe opinion of tho reader. Yot the
subject is nf so much importance that
its discussion from time to time cannot be without value.
In thc popular mind, a serious
blemish or defect of any kind constitutes by that much a bar to the
breeding value of the animal, the
theory that pretty generally defects
are transmissible; therefore, that to
breed blemished animals Is lo Invite
disaster. Quite Inconsistent, however,
with the popular belief, tbat tbe country Is full nf antiquated and otherwise
discarded mures of litlle or no use for
work yot held for breeding. This inconsistency is no groator than Is often
found between theory and practice,
nnd yot it is worth while to discover
hnw much real Inconsistency exists
and to what extent. If any, we nro
justified in using imperfect horses and
mares for breeding purposes.
# ♦   ♦
It is manifestly true that if every
blemish to which horse llesh is heir
were faithfully reproduced by heredity our horses would have become
long before this a veritable walking
museum of spavin, ringbone, sldebone
and thoroughpin, until the logs would
be unable to carry the assortment.
Fortunately this extreme of inheritance
does not exist, and in the light of the
present day knowledge thc ([UPstion is
not so much whether the brood marc
Is actually spavined as whether her
hock Is one which would easily become spavined without especial strain.
In othor words, there are many horses
and mares with spavins that are undoubtedly better and safer breeders
than many others without, simply because the hock is bettor, the spavin being evidence only of unusual and excessive strain.
• •   •
Too long the mind of the horseman
has been confusing the blemishes and
othor abnormalities of tho horse. For
every man who knows a really goml
horse and Aio difference between one
of second or third class, there are a
dozen or more who profess to kimw ail
about* the blemishes nnd what will
cure thom. The truth of tho matter
Is that ordinary blemishes have of
themselves uuie significance to the
breeder. Their significance lies along
commercial lines In Incapacitating the
horse for service. The breeder, on
lhe other hand, needs to give his
attention to the natural conformation
of the animal before the blemish occurred, because, without a doubt, tho
blemish itself is not transmitted, The
writer Is perfectly aware at this point
thnt many of his readers will strongly
dissent 'from this statement and yet
he Is satisfied tho statement Is true.
We have been cutting off lamb's tails
for many generations without effect
upon (In- breeding powers of the animals and if any matter Is settled in
those   -lays,   this   one   Is   settled—that
ordinary mutilations and blemishes ore
nut transmitted,
1 in the other hand, the breeder needs
lo scan much more closely than he
has been scanning, those dofects In
conformation thai easily load to blemishes ami above all. to fear those constitutional weaknesses that shorten life
or thai lead to Inefllcloncy the weak
back, the poor bock, tbo round bone,
the stupid head, the blundering manner.    All  these   ir institutional  and
all are transmissible,
When Hu- blemished oh) mnre is
turned oul to mass f.»r breeding purposes, tho sin that is committed is
not so groat us may at tlrst be supposed. That she has grown old lu
service Is evidence nf strength and
vigor of constitution that are exceptional and If she conies upon her leys
Ibo evidence of service which nre a
good   deal   like  the   knotted   bones   of
the toiler tliat aro not reproduced In
the offspring, sin* is infinitely more
valuable ns n breeder than the slick
young maro in the pasture which ims
never seen servi-e. und which, though
yol clean In body nnd limb, would
from defective conformation go down
under a fraction ot the labor thnt tho
Older animal has performed. This Is
the individual that deceives tho brood-
an aspect of fierce determination. Each
snnke priest has two attendants, one
of whom bears a feather wand. The
snakes aro handed out from a bower.
The priests hold ihem ln their mouths
iind carry them around while dancing.
The assistant attracts tho attention of
the snake, and perhaps thus keeps it
frum biting the priest. When each
snake has been carried in tho dance
and each In due time has been drop-
pod and nil have been gathered up
again, an old priest sprinkles sacred
meal on the ground, outlining a ring
wilh six compass points.
The snakes aro then thrown on the
meal. So they arc entrusted with tbc
prayers of the people and then are
given their liberty to carry these prayers to the gods who arc able to causo
the copious rains so needed In this desert region to water the corn and other
crops of the I-Iopl.
Some wbo havo seen as many as six
dances say that they have never seen
a   dancer bitten;   others have seen  tho
rattlers strike their fangs deep Into
Lha priest's flesh and remain thero
fastened by their long, curved, fish
bonollko fangs until removed. Tlie
prlOStS are certainly extremely carefill, ami, loo, they have an antidote for
snaka bltos made of the roots of a certain plant.
FRED  GRANT'S OPINION  OF  HIS
FATHER
Tho class which entered In ISfiC reported In camp on duly Fourth, just afler :i first classman hud rend to the
assembled cadets, new and old. tho Do-
olaratlon of Independence. An oration
by ii cadet had followed and In Its
course a "glowing tribute was paid" by
the boy orator to George Washington,
Wheu the now cadets entered plebc
camp on that Independence Day an upper classman, bent on having some
fun with tho son of Ulysses Simpson
Grant, looked him up and asked him:
"Which do you think was tbe greater
man, General George Washington or
General Ulysses S. Grant?"
Fred's answer blunt and quick was,
"Washington may havo boen the greater man. but my father was the greater
soldier."
"Mr, Grant," said the upper classman, "to compare your father to
George Washington in any sense Is
like unto the comparing of a plucked
hen with tho American eagle."
Then a fight started, but It was stopped almost Instantly by some first
class men, because the place was too
public for a fracas.

MARITIME   STRATEGY
Mr, Julian Corbett bus done good
service In producing his new study of
naval history, "Some Principles of
Maritime Strategy." Aa student of
history and u lecturer at tho Naval
War College, ho hus no doubt realized
that n need exists Cor such n work, do-
voted exclusively to the consideration
of the principles of strategy to bo
adopted by n .Maritime Slate, says
ilu- London Daily Telegraph, Until
comparatively recent yenrs tho theory
of war was usually viewed from tho
standpoint of continental Powers, with
their long und exposed frontiers always
open to attack. Even today, owing to
various Influences, reference Is frequently made lo naval strategy and
military strategy as though they were
separate and distinct, and had no 00m-
Imon ground. Mr. Corbdtt's thesis is
I that lho theory of war brings out their
Intimate relation, "li reveals that embracing them both is a larger strategy
j which regards the fleet und lhe army
las one weapon, which co-ordinates
Ihelr action, and indicates the lines on
which each must move to realize lho
full power of both." This is a consideration which In British defensive ur-
rangements has been only too fre-
Iquotltiy—indeed, usually—Ignored. It
(is the dominating factor in tho study of
I wnr ns employed by a maritime State,
and ll has been ignored, the War Office
working In ono watertight compartment und the Admiralty In anolher.

With the Horses
What is the weak point in the trotter today? It is not speed. We have
distanced the dreamer of yesterday,
and the end Is not yet. The weal;
point of the trotter Is lack of uniformity  and  absence  of  type.
A retired millionaire once said: "I
like the trotters, but I'll never breed
them till you can show me a sire with
a dozen colts that look just like him.
I can breed cuttle, or sheep, or hogs,
or chickens, or dogs; yes, even other
breeds of horses such us hackneys,
percherons, etc., with some uniformity.
But  when you  breed  trotters  you  get
everything,"
When you come to think of lt the
mun was right. Anyone who has tried
to iind n team-mate for a horse knows
how un uniform the trotter is.
Now that extreme speed has so nearly become a fixture in the prepotent
trotting families, lt is high time for
breeders to become Individual propagandists  With   tho  object  of fixing a
type.
Why is it that type Is more firmly
established In almost every breed of
fancy stock except the trotting horse?
Then- must be something lucking In
trotting breeding that is present in
other breeding. There Is something
lacking, to Wit, line-breeding, which Is
assiduously practised by every other
breeder except tho trotting horse
breeder.
Why Is line-breeding neglected?
There seems no reason except that the
great mass of trolling breeders are
great Imitators and the system has
never been very generally tried. Wo
can count on our fingers the prominent  breeders who are line-breeding In
anything like n systematic way.
The trotter Is essentially a line-bred
horse, but this result wns not achieved
through   design.    The   Hambletonlan
family early showed Its superiority and
Immediately thai blood was sought und

arms ashore,"
i    This is well put If the words are not
.'misinterpreted and are taken as a gen-
'eral statement of a great truth which
we in this country are only just beginning   to   realize.     But'  this   larger
stratogy   is   not   merely   governed   by
naval and military demonstrations.   As
Mr. Corbett observes, "wars are not de-
I elded exclusively by military and naval
force, because "finance Is scarcely less
Important," and when other things are
equal, "It is lhe longer purse that wins."
It is even true that it has many times
redressed an   unfavorable   balance of
armed force, and given victory to the
physically  weaker  Power.      Nor  does
this exhaust the issues involved in the
larger strategy.     Mr. Corbett has done
no belter work for the nation thnn in
setting out the plain facts in this book:
J   "War being, us it is. a complex sum
:of   naval, military, political, financial
and   moral   factors.   Its  actuality   can
seldom offer to 11  naval  staff it clean
' slate   on   which   strategical   problems
..an  be solved  by  well  turned syllogisms.   The naval factor can never ignore the others. From the outset une or
more of them will always call for some
[act of exercising command which will
not wait for its turn in the logical progression."
From this indication of the field covered by the author it will be understood
how appropriate Is the appearance of
this volume at a moment when a Naval
I War Staff has been established at the
1 Admiralty to co-operate with the
general stuff already in existence at
the War Offlce, both bringing the fruits
of their labors, as required, to lhe committee of Imperial defence, where sit
the ministers of state (and their
■officials on occasion), whose special
'duty it Is. and must be, to study the
[political, financial and moral factors of
war. v
( Mr. Corbett'a work covers a wide
i field, nnd he writes with all the restraint and scrupulous care which one
i expects from him. His ".Maritime
Strategy" la probably the best book
which could be put Into the hands of a
naval or military officer beginning the
study of imperial defensive policy; and
if only it could be a sine qua non to
presence at the committee of Imperial
defence that all ministers should be
able lo pass an examination in Its conduits, tlu* nation might be saved millions of pounds due to changes in unln-
structod opinion. That Mr. Corbett
has set forth none but unexceptional
propositions Is not, *>f course, suggested, because on several points there
is room for criticism. But. general.y,
It may be said lhal there Is no other
volume so Interesting, lucid, and convincing.

turned to (lie girl.

"Do you fancy Mr. Marston will accept that explanation?"
"Mr. Steele—" the derelict drew back
his thin shoulders, and faced the other
with a glint lu lho pale pupils that

"I leforo 1 became a scoundrel, sir. I

hope that he will make somo allowance

I hope so particularly Inasmuch as that
daughter Is also his wife."
Steele started forward, ids eyes going Involuntarily to the girl, but she
sat. unflinching, except lhat a. sudden
spasm <if pain crossed the hopelessness
of lier eyes. Somewhere among Duska Fllson's ancestors, there had been
a stole. instantly Steele realized
that it was he himself who had
brought about the needless cruelty of
thai reminder, St. John had disarmed him, and put him In the wrong.
"1   beg your pardon, sir."   he said.
"I came here," said St. John, slowly,
"noi unly to notify ymi about your

"Mr, SI. .lolin," she said slowly, ■■may

For a moment, the Englishman look-
i-d al her quietly, then tears Hooded
his oyos. II,- thought of the message
uf the portrait, ami. with no infor?
mation except that of his own observing eyes. In: read a part at leasl
of  tbe  situation.
"Miss Fllson," he said with as simple
a dignity as though his name had
never been tarnished, as though the
gentleman had never decayed into the
derelict, "ray daughter would be happy to receive you, but she is in no
condition to hear Blartllng news. By
hor own wish, we have not in seven
years spoken of Mr. Marston. She
does not know tliat I believed him
dead, she does not know that he has
re-appeared. To tell her would endanger her life."
"I shall not go as a bearer of news,"
the girl assured him: "1 shall go only
as a friend of her father's, nnd—because  I  want   to."
St. John hesitatingly put out bis
hand, When the girl gave him hers,
lie bent over it with a catch in his
voice, 1 ut a remnant nf the grand
manner, and kissed her lingers in the
fashion of the old days.
Driving with Steele the next morning to St. John's lodgings, the girl
looked straight ahead .steadfastly. The
rain of the night had been forgotten,
and lhe life of Parts glittered wilh sun
and brilliant abandon. Pleasure-worship atid vivacious delight seemod to
lie like a spirit of the departed summer on tho boulevards. Along the

flowed a swift, continuous parade of
motors, bearing in state gaily dressed
women, until the nostrils were tilled
with a strangely blended odor of gasoline and flowers. The pavement cafes
and sidewalks flashed color, and echoed laughter, Nowhere, from tho spot
where the guillotine had stood to the
circle where Napoleon decreed his
arch, did there seem a niche for sorrow.
"Will you wait here to see to what
he awakens?" questioned Steele.
Duska   shook  her head.
"I have no rlghl to wait. And yet—
yet. 1 can't go home!" She leaned toward  him. Impulsively,     "i couldn't

AUSTRALIA IS NOW 142 YEARS OF
AGE
All Australia ims Just celebrated the
l_8nd anniversary of the discovery by
Captain Cook of tho last continent. A
Melbourne contemporary contains an
account of the event lhat Is at onco
interesting and Informative.
"It was stormy weather, and tlie llt-
tlu ship had had a severe buffeting in
the gate. Suddenly above the roar of
the wind rang out the volco of tho
lirsl-Ilealennui—"Land ahoy!'
"The captain—one of the greatest
captains that over sailed llie seas—
was pacing tlie dock wbeu he heard It.
lie slopped and, straining his eyes,
peered into tho distance. 'Ay—land,'
he said.   'Mut what land?*
"Something nf what lay to the southward he know, but nothing of this land
that loomed like a mist In the northern horizon,
"It was early morning—(i o'clock on
Thursday, tbo 19th of April, 1770—or
as It Is given In the ship's log, the 18th
hour of the 18lh of April, the nautical
reckoning being from noon tn noon uf
each day, and not from midnight to
midnight. It was tin- Ninety Mile
Beach of Eastern GippBlnnd that lay to
llie nortllWOBt, and Point Hicks received its name from the llrsl-licutenant
whn sighted the lund.
"Kor nine days Hie little ship skirled
lhe coast, heading northeast, and keeping a sharp lookout for a suitable harbor iii which she might lie in safety.
A southerly wind carried lhe vessel
pa.h| .b-i-vls Hay, and an attempt to
huu) noar Clifton wuh frustrated by the
rough surf; but ul daybreak mi tint
_siii of April tin- opening Intu Botany
Hay was sighted, and by the afternoon
the Kndcavor was at anchor Inside lhe
bay, and Captain Cook set fool upon
these slmres. Tlie spot whore ho laml-
od, togolhor With Mr. (afterwards Sir)
Joseph Hanks, Dr. Solander nud other
members of the expedition, was at
Kurnell, where tbe groat ovonl was especially celebrated.
"Thai was the discovery of AUS-
Iralla; or, at all events, thc hoisting of
lhe ting of possession dates from lhat
lime. Hong before tills the existence
of a groat southern continent was
known, The discovery uf Cape York
und the Gulf of Carpentaria hy the
Dutch dates back to 1580, and many
years prior lo that, our geographers
aud historians tell us, Hie Portuguese
ami Spanish knew, or guessed, of the
existence of this land.
"In Hiss came William Dampler, who
discovered the northwestern shores of
Australia, and the name of Dampler,
for all his buccaneering, has a special
charm for us, because of his connection
wilh another personage whose namo is
a household word In almost every land
—Alexander Selkirk, or, as ho is more
familiarly known, Robinson Crusoe.
Selkirk was ono of a crow collected by
Dampler in fitting out an expedition in
170T* to destroy Spanish commerce on
the South American coast. The vessel
became leaky, and when the small
| island of Juan Fernandez was reached,
one of tlio crew—no other than Alexander Selkirk—preferred to stay alone
on the island rather than venture forth
in the ship again. The ship was afterwards lost, but Dumpier escaped, and
in 1709 he once again found himself at
Juan Fernandez, and rescued Selkirk,
on whose strange nceount of his four
years' sojourn on the lonely Island Defoe based his 'Robinson Crusoe,' the
most delightful of all romances that
our children read.
"For nearly 70 years alter Dampler
nothing happened in the way of Australian discoveries. It was then, in
176S, that I.ieutenant James Cook was
sent out In command of the Endeavor
with a party of scientific men to Tahiti
for the purpose of observing the transit
of Venus; and the spot where the observations were made, some 10 or 12
miles distant from the French township nf Papeste, is now marked by n
monument and tablet. Rut Cook also
had Instructions to search for traces of
a southern continent in the Pacific;
and after sailing round both Islands of
New Zealand, making maps as he proceeded, wi' find him making for Tasmania. II was then that he was driven
northward by a storm, and Ninety-
Mile Reach WOS sighted.
'"On Saturday. March 31/ we read
in 'Cook's Voyages.' flrst published ln
1788, 'our commander sailed from Cape
Farewell In New Zealand, and pursued
his voyage to the westward.' New Holland, or as It is now called, Now South
Wnles, came in sight on April 13, and
on the 28th of thnt month the ship
anchored In Rotnny Bay.
"Then follows nn account of the unsuccessful attempts to gain the con-
fidence of 'the Indians,' and the narrative proceeds: 'While, on lhe 3rd of
May, Mr. Ranks was gathering plants
near the watering-place, Lieutenant
Cook wenl wilh  Dr. Solander nml Mr.
Monkhouso to the head of ihe bay for
the purpose of examining that part of
the country, and of making further attempts to form some connections with
the natives. In this excursion they nc-
quired additional knowledge concerning
(he nature of the soil, and Its capacities
for cultivation, but bad nu success in
their endeavors to engage the Inhabitants in entiling In a friendly Intercourse. Several parlies (hat were sent
Into lhe country on lhe next day will)
tin- same view wero equally unsuccessful.
"It was on account of (he great
quantity of plants which Mr. Hanks
and Dr. Solander collected In this place
thai Lieutenant Conk was induced to
give ii tlm name or Botany Ray.
"As for Hie natives, 'they seemed, like
olher animals, to lie scattered about
along the coast, and tn the woods, Not
a single article was touched by ihem
of all that were left at their huts, or nt
tin*- places which ihey frequented, so
little sense had they of those small conveniences and ornuments which are
generally very alluring to Hie uncivilised tribes of Ihe globe.'
"That was Australia H2 years ago,
when Cook planted the Flag of Rng-
luml on It. It was from tliat time tbat
tbe colonization of the country began.
Karly in January. 1788, the 'First Fleet'
came, disembarking Its passengers on
the shores of Port Jackson. It is not
often that a commencement so inslgni-
lleanl has been the prelude to successes so vast. Unconscious thuugh Ihey
were of It, those 1,0'-1 persons who
landed here were Ihe pioneers of a
great  nation.
"'I know that 1 forecast no shndowy
picture,' siiid tho late Sir Henry Parkes,
In January, 1S88—the year of the ccn-
tennry of the foundntion of the colony
of New South Wales, 'when I tell ymi
that these young Australian States will
in the course of a very .short time—
another generation will do lt—tako
Ihelr rank among the nations of the
world. I, tor mie, fervently hope tlmt
our connection with Hie grand old State
from which we sprang may long continue. I can conceive of no higher distinction for Ilu; young Australian Commonwealth thnn that of being affiliated
to old England by some delicate but
sufficiently binding ties, taking a noble,
world-embracing course uf progress
under the same grand old flag. But
whether thai be so or not, one thing is
beyond all doubt, namely, thai wo shall
be a groat powor; and it is lor you to
seo that ihe foundation of a grout national fabric is laid in solid rock, and
by pure and elevated motives—lo see
that tlie spirit whicli inspires your legislation and ymir admlnislrulion in
every act nf your political life be pure
and durable.'
"Wo have an Australian flag today,
and It flies from Australian ships, but
it is Intertwined wilh 'iho same grand
old flag' as li, I88S, lhe same llag as
lhat whicli was hoisted on the shores
of Port .lackson liy Philip In 1788, and
which 18 years before was planted at
Kurnell, iu Botany Bay, by Captain
Cook. We have to thank Cook for Ihe
fact thai we am living under Hie Uil-
lish flat;, a free aud llbcrly-lovlng people.
"Cook has no claim to distinction on
account of Hie lustre of his birth or lhe
dignity of his ancestors - Ids fnlber was
hui n farm sorvant—but Ids deeds havo
made him illustrious, and in Ihe roll of
Australia's pioneers he stands flrsl ami
greatest. Ilo was born in tbe village
of Marlon, in Yorkshire, on October 27,
1721; he was killed by Ihe natives of
Hawaii on Hie morning of February
14, 1770."
RAISING FLAX FOR ITS FIBRQ
Tlie Cniiadiaii Board of Control of the
International Dry-Panning Congress in
its diversified farming campaign announces that Hie growing of flax for its
fibre should he taken up in Southern Alberta, ami points out that it can he
made a veritable bonanza with tho establishment of linen mills, which must
come in this section because uf the ro*
iin leinents of tlm home market.
Tliere being abundant water power in
the province for mechanical mole.- exb.*
eiicics. sullicient coal lur a ciioa-t engine
fuel, and suitable water for rotting in
tlie conversion of flax fibre Into fabiica-
tions of linen, there is everything re-
quired as a natural raw material right
at hand. Thus, right here iu Alberta,
ai) kinds uf linen goods can be produced tu sell within a fraction if not at
just as luw a price us cotton goods—a
great boon tu all farmors.
The growing uf flax fur seed hns been
very successful, and many of the progressive dry-farmers oi' Letlibridge and
vicinity have this season begun tlic putting in ui' a large crop, lt is uot too
late yet, fur flax can bo sown up to tlie
15th of June, although the earlier the
safer.
For many centuries 111 weeks have
been consumed in getting flax ready for
spinning, and a further four or live
Weeks havo been necessary in which to
bleach tho linen product for the market.
By a new process raw flax can now bo
converted into perfectly bleached linen
fibre ready for spinning iu one day.
Sound straw will yield 17 per cent, of
spinning fibre, realizing (500 per ton on
the market. By harvesting at tho proper time good fibre can be produced,
und a fnir crop of seed can he obtained
at tlio same time—tlio mechanical operation uf removing tlie seed without, as
hitherto, injuring tin- Bbro for linen
production being practised in the United States.
The new process fnt converting flax
straw into linen withitp the short spare
of a day, lias passed beyond the experimental stage, and capital invested in
this direction would bo a far bettor
method, because of the certainty of returns, than in gold or other mines where
milling requires millions, and then the
outcomo from a financial standpoint is
always, ur nearly sn. an Indefinite quantity, and the duration of the lode n
mighty uncertainty.
PlttX is n hardy plant to grow; with
an abundance of water it is a certain
wealth producer, ami the various uses
to uiii di the straw and seed can be put
place it beyond the stage of the uncertain.
OLD  ENGLISH  EXECUTIONS
Kxecutions, when criminals wore
banged in the Old Bailey in London,
had certain customary sequels. The
governor of Newgate, fnr instance, always gave a breakfast to tlioso friends
lie had invited to see the hanging, ami
by established custom devilled kidneys
always formed the principal dish, although, as John lloiliugsliciid hnd re
hited. nearly every one was obliged to
swallow n glass nf brandy first.
Another function described in "Li
dim in the Sixties" was tiie reception
held afterward by the hangman nt thi
Groon Dragon, in Fleet street, whore hi
look refreshment wilii his admirers and
sold the fatal rope at tho rule of sixpence per inch.
In the good uld times nearly every
criminal who was executed was credited
with a confession and "last dying
Words-"   whether   lie   uttered   them   ur
not. According fn Case ami Common I
these wero printed iu thousands hy Mr.
Catnnch nf Seven Dials. And sotnotlmoi
an oll'emler wim reprieved on his way tu
Tyburn ami had the pleasure like Lord
Brougham, of leading his own obituary

Many uf theso brondstdos, printed on
a peculiar whitoy-brown paper, can still

Dials at certain quaint little shops that
seem to have dcllcd alike time and the
'' Improvement acts.'' Van can see
them iu the window alongside of old
ballads, forgotten comic songs, children's toys, and bottles of sticky looking sweets.
An execution whicli never came oft
was that of l-Mwnrd Dennis, the public
hangman, who in 1780 was sentenced to
death fur complicity in the Gordon
riots. He was respited and resumed his
Occupation. Ho thoroughly did Dennis
regain favor that in ITS.') the shcrifffl of
London presented him with a gorgeous
oflicial robe "as a testimony to his excellent mode of performing business."
Dennis found this robe not only inconvenient when at work but rather conspicuous nt other times, so he Bold it. to

"THE   FIRELESS  COOKER"
I have just cooked today a pint of
wheat, direct Jrom the granary, in two
ways, both of which, to my taste,
afforded a breakfast fond of superior
quality and character, as to taste and
nutritive value, to any breakfast fond
now on the market. Tho preparation
is most simple, Half a pint of wheat
1 ground In an ordinary coffee mill,
making a coarse whole wheat flour.
This ground menl was mixed with
choul four pnrts water hy volume, ono-
half teaspoon of suit and was then
cooked as follows: The water, boiling
hoi, is placed in at: aluminum bucket.
belonging to a tireless cooker, and
the coarsely ground flour Is stirred In
slowly so as to avoid forming lumps.
The muss Is stirred until it Is certain
that It is perfectly homogeneous in
vessel Is then clamped ou and the
character. The top of the cooking
bucket placed on tho stove and boiled
for Ave minutes, under the slight
pressure whicli the tight cover gives.
Meanwhile thc two circular stones,
which lit lulo the compartment of the
tireless cooker, arc healed, until a drop
of waier sir/Jos when placed upon
Ihem. nne stone Is placed at the bottom of the conker, under the aluminum
vessel, ami the other nil tOp, The
COOkor Is then closed and the vessel
left inside fnr Ave hours, when the
Whoio wheat mush Is ready fur use.
The other half pint of wheat was left
unground and wns prepared In much
Ihe same wuy, although slightly loss
wuter was used. In Ihis latter way
llie wheat can be prepared lo hnve all
lho delicacy and tenderness of cooked
rice, while the whole meat meal, described above, makes a mush unsurpassed lu flavor, quality and whole-
sonieness.
A cereal prepared In Ihls way, as is
well known, forms a practically complete food. It contains the four elements of human food, namely, protein,
starch, sugar and mineral substances,
iu almost as favorable proportions as
In milk. Its quality and flavor, of
course, nre greatly increased by using
cream or rich milk and sugar, but this
adds a groat deal more to the cost of
the dish tban the cereal itself. A
little sugar, however, without anything
else makes a most palatable dish, or
the addition of stewed prunes, or other
fruits forms a nutritious and agreeable
combination.
When ono considers for a moment
the cost of living, especially to the In-
boring man, he wonders why tho
schools and colleges and tho agricultural schools and colleges of this
country do no* teach the working man
tiie value of operations of Ihis kind.
There is no invention which a laboring man can make which will bring
I'lm a large return than a tireless
cooker and a stovo fn whicli the heat
can be easily started and slopped. I
use a coal oil stove with three burners of the wiekless pattern, and find
that for my small family one gallon of
kerosene will do the cooking for two
days (in connection with tho tireless
conker) and this estimate Is perhaps
a little high in tbe consumption of oil.
On such a stove all tho operations of
Hie kitchen can be easily and cheaply
performed. My experience Is that an
investment of $27 will furnish a family
of moderate size wltb a good stove and
■i flreless cooker, bubt of course i
smaller outlay would sufflco for a
smaller or less expensive grade of articles, nnd Indeed the principles of the
cooker would be easily supplied In the
construction of a home made article.
If In connection with these appliances
a family can secure a reasonable supply of milk the problem of nutrition
is largely solved with the minimum
outlny.
I will venture a prediction thnt tbe
man who eats a well prepared cereal,

CHINA'S  WAX-MAKING   INSECTS
on the border lim- between China
nnd Thibet there is a native industry
whicli is not only novel in many respects, but involves a pilgrimage of
great length each year. This Industry
consists in the breeding of insects that
raise wax. This wax is employed in
various parts of China for the making
of temple images and candles.
Those curious Insects are about the
size and shape of shoe-buttons.    Their
mosl peculiar characteristic Is that
they do not secrete the wax in their
birthplaces. Accordingly, about May
each year tin- natives take them from
ihe branches of tin- trees where they
were born and convey them many miles
awny across the mountains, They are
carried lo a part nf tlie country wherein grows the dowering ash upon which
Hu- insects delight to feci ami to deposit tho wax.
Ii is a strange procession tliat proceeds from tin- Chlen Chang valley
every Hprlng. Each porter carries two
bamboo baskets fastened together with
curved sticks. These tit over his
shoulders, one basket being before and
Ihe other behind. The man's burden
consists of gourds containing the Insects which are wrapped in leaves
from the wood-oil tree. The females
are then almost ready to lay their eggs.
The porters set out at nightfall, for
all their travelling must be done at
night. The journey Is about four hundred miles. Upon the conclusion
thereof the porter immediately goes to
the "master" nf the Industry and delivers his burden of goods.
At once the leafy bags are tied on the
branches of Hie ash-tree, which are
only five or six feet high. A blunt
needle Is pushed through the leaves rathe bag In order that the insects may
find their way out. Once they have
left, they creep rapidly up \.y the
of the trees and begin to feed. In a
short lime they have scattered along
the  branches and  soon  th-  egga   ure
hatched and tin.' wax Is being d--[JOSite.ii
on the twigs. Hy September :-:
trees look as though they were covered with snow. Tb? branches ure
then cut ntr and their coating la Kiuped
awny. The wax la heated, strata d,
and turned Into the moulds.
In addition    to    the purposes   i
mentioned,..this wax is also rosed for illumination,   It   serves   aa  a  polish   foe
furniture, and it is useful in imp.;.-'.   ;
a gloss to silk.
