"Oh, yes," said Barbara, "thai will

I will pay you for the first, week now;
please wall a minl.ue."
Barbara took out her little purse;
she extracted eight shillings from her
tiny store. The landlady saw the
purse. Plie had a quick eye and she
noticed Its quality. It. was a purse
with a heavy gold ring round it, and
the girl's initials were worked in a
gold monogram on the front, her little cambric handkerchief had also appeared out ot smie pocket. It was tiny

ed. The landlady further caught a
glimpse of a heavy, a vory heavy, gold
chain, and yet another glimpse of a
gold walch, and above and beyond all
these things there was something in
tho make of the girl's clothes, her
whole carriage, the sweetness in her
eyes, and the smile which came and
went round her lips, which softened
Mrs. Russell's heart.
"My dear, my dear!" she said, "we
landladies is often took in, we has to
be particular like, but I believed in
you, you're a right, good sort. You
mustn't take the battle unelss yon

Barbara went upBlairs with tlie woman. Try as she would, she could

as snug can be. It's a clean room,
miss. It's only the dust and the smuts

Barbara responded in pleasant

greatly obliged to you. I am sure the
room will suit me. And���don't forget

"Oh, my dear, I trust you, I do so.

Red Rose. It is distinctive in this respect, being specially selected and blended
to suit the hard water of the Prairie Provinces. No matter how hard the water it
cannot destroy the rich strength and flavor of Red

why Red Rose is such a favorite.

Strange Race of Ancient Britons
Among tho races ot human Kind
which awuy back of history's records
passed llko clouds over various parts
of the earth one of the most puzzling
to ethnologists Is that of tlie early
bronze age men who dwelt in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, and are supposed
lo have constructed the special forms
of stone circles whose remains are
now found there. These men differed
significantly from all the prehistoric
racial types previously determined in
Britain. They were remarkably
hroadheaded, nnd their average stature waB only five feet three inches,
as shown by' skeletons. Tho British
neolithic race was markedly long
headed, and the bronze age race,
which built the round tumuli, was also
long headed and tall.
Will  The
Increase Its Dividend
The statement which the General
Manager of the Merchants Bunk of
Canada has just issued to Its Shareholders, shows that the Bank's reserve
now stands at $7,000,000, which is
also the amount of Its paid up capital.
Will the Shareholders now come In
for a share ot tha profits, earned on
this accumulation?
Bank Managers, in Canada, have
very rightly aimed at accumulating in
good times a reserve which would enable them to weathor any ordinary
business stress without having to curtail dividends, but the present strong
position ot the Merchants Bank ot
Canada, its good percentage of quick
assets; Us high standing among the
community, would ssein to justify at
least a bonus distribution.
Canada has a light to lie proud of
Its Banks, and under the present Management, the Merchants Bank of Canada, has increased Its right lc be considered oue of the lenders, ot the foremost financial institutions of the country.

Will  The
Increase Its Dividend
The statement which tlie General
Manager of the Merchants Bunk of
Canada has just issued to lis Shareholders, shows that the Bank's reserve
now sta_ds at $7,000,000, which Is
also the amount of Its paid up capital.
Will the Shareholders now come in
for a share of ths profits, earned on
this accumulation?
Bank Managers, In Canada, have
very rightly aimed at accumulating in
good times a reserve -which would enable them to weather any ordinary
business stress without, having to cur-
tall dividends, but the present strong
position of the Merchants Bank of
Canada, Its good percentage ot quick
assets; Its high standing among the
community, would seem to justify at
least a bonus distribution.
Canada has a right to be proud of
its Banks, and under the present Management, the Merchants Bank ot Canada, has increased ils right to be considered one of the leaders, of the foremost financial institutions of the country.

Editor Review
Sir:���The slurs cast from time to
time by our Socialist friends has
has prompted nie lo air my views
in the columns of the Review.
These gentlemen keep howling
the needs of the country, I am apt
to stray from some of llieir ideas.
The greatest need in this locality
is the spirit of tolerance, tlie need nf
recognition that we have a ri^lit lo think
anil form opinions of our own anil get in
accordance with those opinions.
It is very remarkable in tliis glorious
twentieth century which we are so food
of calling tlie century of progress and
enlightenment, that we should meet so
many people with no breadth of vision,
their outlook seems narrowed aud their
horizon limited.
They Imagine the bit of world within
their circumscribed vision is the whole
earth, and the little poor they sec themselves is the whole ocean of truth,
Anything outside their velw they deride, or condemn, foolishly fancying the
grain of knowledge ihey possess is the
Thus is born the spirit ol Intolerance
and bigotry, which has sent men to the
stake,    crippled progresI'i nnd closed lhe
shutters agalnstenlighteiiment,   tt Is the
spirit of Intoleration that has stood ill
the way of all reforms, and hindered the
spread of knowledge, and hound liberty
witli red tape.
men are not allowed to think for themselves hut must accept certain man made
creeds, follow certain rules, and move iu
thought, word, and deed within a small
circumference marked out for llieni by
the narrow sources.
We find this spirit everywhere and in
every department of life. There are certain types of homes where parents
imagine their children must think along
exactly the same lines as themselves'
making no allowance for the changing of
times and changing of thought.
If parents are allowed to have all tlieir
own way, which they have sometimes,
what is tlie result? in many cases disaster
Alas, their children grow up with no
ideas of tlieir own, weak wilted, and
weak minded. They lack the power to
think for themselves and become rudderless vessels on tbe stormy sea of life, a
menace to others and a grave danger to
In tbe world of polotics we find tbis
spirit of intolerance and Bigotry rampant
there have been many instances of the
length men will go spurned on by political bigotry, it is not necessity or advisable for me to particularise. - We can
see cases every day if we keep our eyes
open. Why not give other people credit
for possessing as much sincerity of purpose and honesty of notion as we ourselves possess.
II we were to cultivate a little more of
the spirit of tolerance, and took the
trouble to clear the mist of bigotry and
prejudice from our eyes, we should be
able to take a more wide and comprehensive view, and many and much needed
refo-ms would be carried through to the
lasting benefit of all concerned.
The man that would be a man must
assidiously cultivate a spirit of tolearation.
He must, while observing bis own individuality recognize the individuality of
others and respect tlieir opinions.
True progress will never consort with
intolerance and bigotry scotches the
wheel of reform.

plies of capital, at present the very
money that should be feeding the
development of Canada is being
blazed away and used un productively.
To turn to pleasanter topics, the
Boy Scouts have from time to time
rendered splendid service in fighting fire, in the States and on the
mainland of B. C especially, and
iu this connection it is interesting
to record thnt the Minister of
Lauds the Hon. W. R, Ross has
issued 1.000 specially designed
whetstones, bearing the Scout
motto, "He Prepared," and the
legend'Help protect, our forests:
build camp fires iu safe places;
when you leave, put them out."
This will serve to remind the scouts
not only to be careful themselves,
also to keep a lookout for fires,
ami aid the Forest Service.
Two years ago, when it was
proposed to start a troop of ScotltS
in the town of Cumberland, opposition was raised to good effect that
the movement would encourage
lllilitaryism. The foregoing paragraph will show that the movement
litis other things in view, ("Peace
hath her victories not less renowned than war") and ranges from
extending help to the old dame
who wants a bucket of water, to
standing by for sixteen hours protecting an up-country town from
destruction from fire.
Too many of our lads 'stand
idle in the market place" and develop the habit of loafing. The
Scout movement aims at making
them into useful, courteous, self-
reliant citizens. That the aim has
been a success, is proved by reference to any newspaper almost one
chooses to take up, It is Courtenay's loss that there is no troop of
Scouts at presenti although the Island generally has taken up the
movement to good effect.

The war bulletins posted up each
day at the newspaper offices in
Victoria command the keenest attention, and from the tangle of reports it is evident that the whole of
Km ope is face to face with the
prospect of a long and disastrous
struggle, the tension alone being
little worse than war itself in its
commercial effects. The fact that
foodstuffs are already rising in
price herein B. C. should convince
those who delight to read accounts
of battles at the breakfast table that
the effects of war are widespread
and that the whole of humanity
suffers; "Man's inhumanity to nan

170 miles of trails were cut,   and
this year 175 miles miles of telephone were built for the forestry
branch. The new' Forestry Act
will   shortly   double  the  revenue
from timber licenses etc. The
heads of the various departments
of the Government were good busi

good reputation. He also made
brief mention of the European war
situation, and regretted the fact
that Canada had not a few battleships to offer to aid the Mother

Fiji Islanders' Sugar Cane Dance
A very curious and exceedingly
clever dance may ho witnessed in
Fiji called by tlie natives "the sugar
cane moke," or sugar cano dance. It
represents the growth of the sugar
cine, in the lirst figure the dancsrs
squat low on the ground, shake their
heads, shut tlieir eyes and murmur
slowly and softly an unintelligible sentence. Gradually they all stand up together, growing taller and taller, and
as they "grow" they wave their arms
and tremble all over from ankle to
head, like tlie tall, tasseled cane waving in the wind, and still they keep
on chanting louder and louder. The
last figure represents a series of combats meant to symbolize the exactions
of tho chiefs, who compel the "kalsi,"
willing and unwilling, to coine out and
cut their crops.���London Standard.

The Trouble is Often Really St. Vitus
Dance-Do Not Neglect It
Many a child lias been called awkward, has beta punished iu school for
not keeping slill or for dropping
things, when the trouble was really
St. Vitus dance. This disease may
appear at any age, but is most common between the ages of six and fourteen years. It is caused by thin blood
which fails to carry sufficient nourishment, to the nerves, and Ihe child
becomes restless and twitching of the
muscles and jerking of Ihe limbs and
body follow. In severe cases the
child is unable to bold anything or
feed itself. St. Vitus dance is cured
by building up tho blood. The most
successful treatment is to remove the
child from all mental excitement, slop
school work and give Dr. Williams'
fink Pill's. These Pills renew the
blood supply, strengthen the nerves,
and restore the child to perfect health.
Here is proof of their power to cure.
Mrs. Geo. A. _ lacDonuld, Harrington,
M.S., says: "My son was al tacked by
St. Vitus dance; at the outset his
muscles would twitch and his step
was weak and jerky. We called in a
doctor who treated hiin, but nol withstanding he continued to grow worse
and at last grew so bad that he could
uot hold a cup in his hand, while his
head .constantly twitched, and his
speech became rather indistinct. At
this juncture I saw in a paper the
cure of a boy from similar trouble
through the use of Dr. Williams' IJi.ik
Pills. We at ones sent for a supply,
and in a few weeks after he began
their use there was considerable improvement, aid it was not long after
this before he was completely
cured, and has never had a symptom
of the. trouble since. I am convinced
that there _ no medicine like. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for the cure of St.
Vitus dance.

This calculation has been made iy
Sir William Lever, one of the millionaires who will have to pay, but
who does not object.

Royal Society of Canada
The late Duke ��f Argyll established
one permanency in Canada���a'"Royal
Society," whose membership consists
of men of literature, science, art, etc.
When he started this body, a litera-
teur, who has since become P.K.C.,-remarked In print that "it will never do
anything for literature except furnish
satirists with a subject." The prophecy waB not realized. Of late, largely
by the able guidance of the honorary
secretary, this royal society has ex-
libited vigor, now contemplating useful plans for promoting ils avowed
Reach .ole by Airship
The famous explorer, Captain
aid Amundsen, has long been
vlnced of the practicability of an aeroplane expedition to the Pole. He has
learned how to Hy In France, and during the next few weeks he will be
practising the art at tlie Johannlstbal
Aerodome. Mis companion, Captain
.lacobsen, Is also to lake lessons in
aviation. The machinery destined for
the Polar journey la to be constructed by German engineers after plans
drawn by Amundsen himself. It will
be provided with floats resting on runners curved in such a way as to allow an ascent from the Ice itself. Especial intention is being paid to ihe
petrol reservoirs, since the spirit
freezes at a temperature of 20 deg.

No decision has as yet been come to
as to the type of motor, and experiments will be made at Spitzbergen before tbe explorers make up their
minds whether it shall be cooled by
water or air.
Duke of Argyll Left Papers and Essays
The late Duke of Argyll left a great
mass of papers of various descriptions
and, it is believe'd, ample material
will be found therein to compile the
story of his life when the time comes j
for this work to be taken in hand.
He also left several unpublished I
essays, and these ultimately may be!
published In volume form. |

Is not likely lo make Its appearance)
for two or three years.
Who is an American?
There hasn't been a president
Lincoln whose speeches on great
lie occasions can take rank with Mr.
Wilson's. That over the bodies of tha
sailors killed at Vera Cruz was a moat
striking utterance.
"Notice that these men were of cur
blood,"'lie said.   "1 mean of our American blood, which is not drawn from
| any other country, which is not drawn
! from any other  stock, which  Is not
| drawn from any one language tn the
world, but free men everywhere have
[sent   their country In order to make
' that great compounded na.ion which
11 onsists of all :he sturdy elements and
of all the best elements of the whole
globe.    I  listened again  to  this  Met
with a profound interest at the mixture of tin names, for the names bear
the    marks   of the several national
i stocks from which these men came-
But they are not Irishmen or Germans
lor Frenchmen or Hebrews m\v more.
'They were Americans, every'one of
ihem. and were no different In their
Americanism because of   the    stock
from which they came."
The idea needs to be emphasized for
Canadians quite as much as for their
neighbors, for here the same process
is going on.���Edmonton Capital.
