Increased Wealth of U.S.
From a total valuation of sixteen billions of dollars, or $514 per capita, in
I860, just before the outbreak of the
Civil war, the wealth of the United
States had Increased to nearly 188
billions of dollars in 1012, nearly $:;,-
000 per capita,
Population in the meantime Increased from n little more than 31,000,000 to
more than 95,000,000, having little
more than trebled, while the wealth
had increased nearly twelvefold. New
fork's share of the total���about twenty-live billions uf dollars���is so much
larger than that of any other commonwealth as to justify her title of
the empire state.
The increase of wealth in a greater
ratio than growth of population means
general increase is.well being. Complaints about unfair concentration are
not well founded. There never before
was, a time when the comforts of life
were so widely distributed or when
the purchasing power of a day's wages
was bo high compared with tlie in-
couie from capital.���New Vork Herald,

A   girl's  complexion   Is  something
more than a matter to concern her
vanity.   It is nn Indication of the state
of her health. Pallor in a growing girll
means a thinning ot the  blood.  Parents    should    be    watchful of their |
daughters'  complexions    and  should
see to it that these danger signs are
corrected.    When a girl In her teens
becomes pale and sallow, if siie 3howsi

nnd inattentive    to    her    work    or
Studies, sbe needs Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, n Ionic which directly nnd spec-!
Ideally  corrects  the condition    from'
which  she  is  suffering.  A  chemical
analysis of the blood of such n girl
would show it to be deficient in just
the elements that Dr, Williams' Pink
Pills can  supply, and  which restor -
brightness    to    the    eye    and  . olor
to   the   cheeks.     .Miss    Delina Arse-
unull,    (Jrbatnville,    P.E.I.,    Is    one
of the thousands of anaemic girls restored  to  health by  the  use  of  Ur.
Williams'  Pink  Pills.    She  says:   "1
was attacked with anaemia, and was
in such a miserable condition that 1
had to consult a doctor, and was under his cure for several months, but
without getting better.   1 was growing
thinner every day, had dark circles
around the eyes-   1 could hardly sleep
at night, but tossed restlessly and got!
up in the morning with black antiei-j
pation of tbe  day's  miseries  before
me,   I was always bothered with headaches     and   pains  In  the  back  and
limbs.    My appetite was poor and I
frequently   vomited    what 1 did eat
My friends feared that I would not recover.   I had often seen Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills advertised and finally decided to try tbem.   1 used altogether nine j
boxes and tbey made me as well as
ever I was in my life. All the pains and
aches  disappeared;   my  appetite  re-1
turned.   I could sleep soundly at night,
and the color returned to my cheeks.
I   also  gained  seventeen  pounds  in,
weight-    I am now always  well, and
for this   h-ppy condition   1 have to,
thank Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.

Army Stcrer,
Tlie vaslness of the work of maintaining  the   army���apart   i'rom   feeding It���may  bo guaged  from  a  few i
figures.   In    ono   mouth there were
issued lo the troops 4.">n miles of telephone-wire,  570 telephones,    534,000;
sandbags, 10,(wo pounds of dubbin for
boots, 38,000 bars of soap, 150,000 pairs
of socks, and 100,000 pairs of boots.
ln  ten  days  there   was  also   dis-1
tributed  11.8,100  fur  waistcoats   and
315,075 flanhel bolts.
The wny that Insignificant Items i
mount up where large numbers of j
troops are concerned is shown by
the fact that every week there is j
issued on an average five tons ot i
vaseline for the feet and 100 tons of!
horse shoes-
Some idea of the complexity of,
the work can be gathered by reference lo the official "Vocabulary of|
Stores," which contains 50,000 items,:
As the head of an insurance com-|
pany, he decided to visit one of the;
districts which showed a falling off in j
business     and    quietly    investigate.;
While thus engaged ho was asked how
his company found business, speaking
for itself.   ''Oh, we will be about half
a million ahead of the first half of thia
year," he replied.   "Ahead of what?"
"Why, ahead of the undertaker."

It is proved thnt in many parts ot
Belgium the massacres of the civil

were killed and thc- Red Cross and the

Notes and Comments
Lv'ng as well as thieving seems
to In- characteristic of so .ie German
princely families, The latest instance of the former appears in a
French official statement answering
a Germau prince's assertion that
50 percent of the shells used hy the
French artillery north of Arras
were American-made. As it hap-
pens France has bought ro shells of
any kind in the United States since
the war began.
The value of advertising wns
never moreconclusivel) shown than
in the enthusiastic response which
has ccinc, 1 nth from masters and
men, t'i Mr. Lloyd George's appeal
for the nations cooperation in
Spi .ding up the output of war munitions. The replies of all 'he employers and leading tepresentatives
of labor has been "tell us what you
want done and we will do it." It
is the patriotic equivalent to the
commercial advertising giving pub-
licit y to a sale of goods, and it has
brought the same result. There
never was a clearer evidence of the
fact that ''it pays to advertise."
Two scientists from the United I
States department of agriculture,
accompanied by a number of assistants and guides with a pack train
are to spend the summer and fall
months of this year in the Chilcotin
pull Peace river districts, making a
utudy of the big game there, Their
work is part of a bijj plan, which
has beeu in progress for some years
for an exhaustive study of the animal life i.f the entire North American continent. The gentlemen employed to lead the expeditions are

known here in Victoria. A little
publicity would be a certain harvest and would not lie a costly operation, The railway company
coukl do much too to help Courtenay by giving note favorable terms
for return tickets, but this concession and the advent of tourists will
not be secured unless steps are taken at the Courtenay end. Publicity campaigns to sell B, C. apples
and strawberries have been eminently successful. Why not a campaign with the object of getting
holiday makers to patronize 11. C.
It was announced in Victoria hist
week that no more Comox butter
wou'd be forthcoming. Happily
the rumor proved to be incorrect,
although it was given out on thu
authority cf one of the wholesale
firms handling butter. The Cowichan people make r. point of
regularly advertising their milk,
cream, eggs aud butter, with the
price of the latter.
Now that New Zealand butter
hns ceased to come in, in fact the
butter is going tbe other way now,
fiom Canada to Australia, Alberta
butter nnd eggs are making a bid
for the housewives' custom. Alberta eggs command a price of 30
cents a dozen, while local new laid
fetch 35 cents. There is every
reason to suppose that a large
quantity of eggs is being placed iu
cold storage, uud that pi ices will
steadily rise.
The news of the approaching nr-
rival at Fraser Mills of the steamer
"Llandudno" to load one million
feet of lumber will give pleasure to
the Valley. But for the lack of
tonnage, the lumber industry
would be iu a much better condition than it is today.

At a meeting ot farmers held in
the Agricultural Hall, Courtenav,
on Friday last, the committee ap
pointed in April last to consider the
question of co-operation in this
district, made a report. The following were stated to be the conclusions
to which the committee had unanimously come.
(1) That co-operation would be
much more effective in thit-. district
if it were found possible to have one
stroug central association upon
which the farmer could rely to
handle his business with safetv as
well as with economy to himself
(2) That the difficulties of
forming such an association lie
mainly in the directions of capital
and management, and also that the j
turnover of the business likely lo be
handled by such a business, at anv
rate in its early stages, would not
justify the expense of such a staff
as would ensure its continued sue .
cess and salety. That there would
be a difficulty in borrowing the
necessary capital to run it with the
proper margin of safety, having regard to the fact that it would be
in w and untried,
(3) That in th se circumstances
before trying to deal with difficulties
which on tlie face of them were
formidable, it would be wise to approach the Cowichan Creamery
(which in that district forms such
,1 central association as is contemplated in paragraph one) with a
view to seeing whether some work-
iu r arrangemeut between the two
districts might not solve the difficulties referred to above, and so,
in the first place obtaining by such
an arrangement a larger volume of
business to justify the expenses
necessary to run it with real safety
to the farmer and in the second
place to procure for this district a
share in that closer associatiou with
the markets already possessed by
the Cowichan Creamery.
(4, That under tliese circum-
tsatices the meeting should be asked
to request the committee to undertake such an exchrn^e of views
with the directors of the Cowichan
Creamery, and to report to a meeting to be called at a later date, when
if there seemed to be a reasonable
prospect of doing better business in
that way, further steps could be
The committee wished to make it
quite clear that they approached
the matter with an open mind and
that they were by no means convinced that such an arrangement
would be possible or profitable, but
that they felt it would be extremely
unwise to leave such a possibility
out of account or to abstain from
looking into it.
Accordingly after some discussion
tlie following resolution was passed
"That this meeting rcauests the
committee already appointed, to
treat with tb. Dire t r of the
Cowichan Creamery with a view to
ascertaining whether tiie two districts may not become associated
co-operatively to the better
vantage of both, and to reporl
farmers meeting to be held at a
later date,"

"Vou are not listening to me," Mrs.

"The face, a faee at the window,"
Geoffrey gasped, "A horrible looking

with a gash in his forehead, lie seemed io be looking for something. When
he caught sight of me he disappeared."
Mrs- May had risen and crossed to
the long French window opening on to
the lawn. Her hack was towards
(leoffrey and she seemed determined,
or so he Imagined to keep her face
concealed from him.
"Strange," she said, carelessly,
though she was obviously disturbed.
'Surely you wore mistaken 'dome

Geoffrey laughed. Voung men nt his
time of life, men, who follow healthy
pursuits, are not. given to tricks of
the imagination. His pulse was beating steadily; his skin was moist and
"1 am certain of it," he said. "What
is that noise'.1"
Something was calling down ihe
gulden. Long before this lime the
good people of the farm had gone to
"Shall I go and see what it is'.'"
Geoffrey asked.
���'No, .no," Mrs. May whispered.
'Slay here, I implore you. 1 would not
have had Ihis happen l'or anything.
What am I saying?"
She passed her hand across her face
and laughed Bteadily,
"Thero are secrets in everybody's
life and there are in mine," she said.
"Stay till I return. There will be no
danger for nie, 1 assure you."
She stepped oul Into the darkness
."nd was gone. Geoffrey stooped and
bent over a dark blot or two that lay-
on the stone still ill the bottom of the
"lllood," he muttered, "blood beyond

I-'roin outside eame the swish of

Ihis lime.
"The danger is past," she said, "if
danger you choose lo call It. The next
time we meet we shall laugh together
over this comedy. I assure you it ts
a comedy. And now I am going to
ask you to leave me."
The woman was playing a part and
playing it extremely well. With less
innate knowledge, Geoffrey would
have been thoroughly deceived. As it
was he affected to make light of the

crept up io him and laid a hand on

Geoffrey handed diem over, getting
a pair of rubber soled shoes and a

pocket of the latter lie found a revolver.

(leoffrey might   have asked another

j lost  111  thc  darkness.    And  then  followed  for  (leoffrey    the  most  trying
i part of the business, wailing for the
lirst sign of the foe.
Half an   hour  passed  and  slill  no
sign.    Had  lhe affair miscarried and
lhe miscreants gol away in some olher
| direction?     Strain    his    ears   as  he

i Then  al.  length  something soft and
rustling seemed to he creeping along

Geoffrey crept Ihrough the gap in-
I to the garden.    Almost instantly he
| dropped on his fnce, for somebody carrying a lantern was softly creeping in
his direction.    It was the ligure of a
woman, a woman who had a black lace
shawl so wrapped about lier that in
the feeble light it  was impossible to
make   our  her   features.   She  paused
I and made a hissing sound between her
I leeth.
| As if they liad been evolved out of
! Geoffrey's inner consciousness, there
appeared two men upon tlle lawn. One
was lying on ids back, his head supported on the arm of his companion.
They were Indian unlives of some
kind, but of what race precisely Geoffrey could not say. The prostrate man
had an ugly cut across his forehead;
it was lhe same man that Geoffrey
had seen looking' through lhe window.
A crafty, ugly, sinister face it was,
full of cunning malignity. The eyes
were dull, but the fires of hate were
still in them. The woman stooped
down und produced cool bandages
soaked in some pungent liquid, which
she proceeded to bind round the
brows of thc injured man. Even at his
respectful distance Geoffrey could
catch tile odour of the bandages.
Ile watched the weird midnight
scene witli breathless interest. There
was something creepy about, the whole
business. If tliese people had nothing
to conceal, all this surgical work might
have taken place indoors; they might
have called assistance, Geoffrey tried
to catch sight of the woman's features.
Ilut that was impossible. Still, there
was something familiar    about    her.
i She stood  up presently and Geoffrey
no longer hud any doubt.
It was Mrs. Mona May.
The injured man rose also, lie staggered along ou the arm of his companion and Geoffrey could wiih some
difficulty see ihem enler the sitting-

The total imports of merchandise
into the Union of South Africa during
1914 were valued at $150,812,600 compared with $192,631,900 for 1913. The
largest decrease wus in imports of articles of food and drink, of which the
values were $30,000,000, and $35,000,-
000 respectively. Exports decreased
from $326,o73,000 in 1913 to $192,474,-

Safety First in
Poultry Raising
Conditions Necessary to Ensure Success in the Poultry Business
To produce poultry that will meet
the present day high standard of (nudity requires business-like attention to
the essential things lhal tend to influence the proper growth and l.cep
llie flock in such condition ns to keep
production proportionately great
throughout Hie whole year. Thai
great success can be attained In small
lioeks on comparatively small spiicci
has been repeatedly demonstrated.-
Of course, lliere are a number of
very essential considerations that may
make or innr success, but we believe
failure is due hi more eases lo neglect io avoid difficulties than by lack
of attention to furnish whal mny be
generally termed every day essentials,
The pouliryuuui who raises birds to
show wants to produce something that.
will  outclass  Ills   rival's  birds  al   Hie
tlmo of the show and the market poultry man wishes to produce moro marketable eggs and poultry of prime
quality to secure the top prices for
Ids product, lie who can produce liis
goods nut of llie regular season iu as
vigorous nud thrifty condition as those
produced during llie natural si .non
has gained an advantage that his rlv
als cannot make up on him,
In considering any aspect of poultry
work we believe it wise to most carefully consider Hie season's work nnd
plan in advance the possibilities with
tiie available material and conditions
and on a most conservative basis
make preparation lo carry out the
plan by taking all the precautious that
will avoid the difficulties frequently
seen where poultry is Kept.
Generally some objective is Hie incentive tu" any special effort during
tho season, lt may be some special
show at. the end of tho year or a group
of shows. It. may be to supply winners for customers or perhaps to fur
nish early broilers or soft roasters or
to get eggs early at the season when
prices are high nnd in consequence
obtain a much bigger return. Whatever the results desired it is necessary
to plan a sufficient time ahead to lie
sure of accomplishing what is wauled
with some allowance fnr shrinkage or
failure on Hie hoped-for results.
If seasons were nil identical one
could plan le get llle same resells
wilb the same treatment year after
year, but conditions vary so lhat ordinarily Hie crop i.s materially affei ted
by any deviation from the regular season. The shortage of early chickens
last fill! was a marked example of this
Before starling ihe season's hatching, which is usually Hie big factor in
lhe year's work, the condition of Hie
breeders must hnve the closes! consideration. Here is involved Hie task
of having the breeders in the pink of
condition when the hatching eggs are
Io be secured. Tlie best eggs for Ihis
purpose will lie si cured from lhe
hens when they are in lhe best physical condition, If tbey nre run down
from too much showing or from forcing for egg production Ihey will not
become physically Ml until well en iu
the season, We would consider il
easier lo hatch chicks in December
if Hie breeders were in line tit then
and carry them through a month moro
of winter weather than to hatch in
January from the same birds if liny
bad lost llieir simp, 'the chicks with
one month less of winter to go Ihrough
wiih a weaker start would lie harder
lo handle than (he sturdier chicles out
of eggs laid when the hens were most
physically fit.
Ho much is dependent on the good
qualities of the male thai we consider
one of"the tlrst considerations of snfe-
ty is the selection of Hie male, lie
cannot be too good, either, from a
standpoint of ihe productiveness of his
parents or his own constitutional vigor. Wc believe this to be true no matter what branch of poultry work is
contemplated, fancy or utility. A
weak, well finished male may produce
something nice mated with strong females, but it takes the most careful after-selection to keep up the vigor and
prevent the lowering of the vitality of
tlie progeny on account of Hie introduction of the bird lacking vitality. As
a general plan we consider it wise
to select the very best type of male
nnd male to him such females as will
affect his faults by Hie qualities they
may show that he is lacking. At Hie
same time it, is a help to remember
that the more nearly alike two birds
are the more nearly alike should the
progeny be. Great extremes cannot
produce u great proportion of similarity and require longer careful breeding to utilize Hie original trails of
value in both specimens.
Having cur breeders selected il is
advisable lo incite sure that tlieir environment is all that could be desired
to give all the nattual comfort. Ihey
need to keep them vigorous and capable of reproducing themselves in the
largest possible way. Hy ibis we do
not mean thai lavish expense must be
made l'or llie birds- Very frequently
the simple conditions are much more
result-getting than extravagant conditions, and require less production to
make a profit,
Tho housing must be of a nature
lo provide great abundance of fresh
air and sunlight at all times of the
year. 'The temperature is not Important, but the birds must, be protected
from stormy winds and lr.1 well
well protected when on the roosts at
night. Males that we carry over the
winter get out every day and most of
the time have nothing but snow for
drinking water. We know of no method that has made hardier, sturdier
breeders than this rough treatment of
the males.
While the male is h.ilf lhe pen, llie
besl male lhat could be secured could
not. possibly produce d ipendable stock
unless lhe females were nlso of a high
calibre. Hood females wilb good males
that will mate well wiih Ihem make
the best selection -for building up a
sturdy  (lock.
Having the pins tcleeted and muled
and everything in order so lhai they
will be In good condition to produce
eggs that are capable of hatching
strong, sturdy chicks it becomes necessary to plan ahead SO as to have
everything in readiness to give these
chicks every opportunity of mnklng
the best growth. Willi the early
hatches il Is necessary tn provide conditions that will us much rs possible
furnish those elements Hint make
them thrive in the natural season,
We believe It possible lo mention
these in a single sentence. They need
sanitary quarters, clean feed of lhe
right properties, lols of sunshine ar.d
fresh air of suitable temperature, pure
(lean water and conditions that
make them scratch and work for
lhe feed they got, All of Ihese conditions can easily bo supplied if a
little thought is given lhe matter in
advance of the actual need of Hie
supplying of them, Ordinarily d'tli-
, cully does not develop with the lirst.
i brood or two, but as the chicks in-
��� crease and space and equipment become used up anil the work begins to
crowd, Hie little fellows or the later
i hatches get less attention and either
from having lo be accommodated in
coops that have already been used
by earlier broods or placed on tlie
same ground that lias become soured
or contaminated do not make the same
growth as the older or earlier ones.
Perhaps there are no causes thai
have made failures Willi poultry like
overcrowding aud contamination of the
soil. The last we believe to be tlu
greatest usual factor that Impoverishes successful plants, the former being contributory to the same result.
Even on large plants where Hit
acreage is larger than i8 always in ao
tual use for the chicks, it haB sonic
limes happened on most successful
plants Hint soil contamination lias
has made it necessary to abandon foi
the time the location where llieir nper
aliens have been heaviest. This if
one of the troubles that can bo pre
vented by taking safety methods be
tore conditions arise that will affecl
the growth of the young stock. But t
short time ago we heard of a vcrr
successful poultry man who had mnde
iu a few j ears $110,000 lo $30,000 whe
found it necessary lo abandon hit
plant on account of the ImposBlbilttJ
of gelling the same growth in his
young stock due lo soil contamination
When this occurs ou ,i farm with reasonably good management how much
easier can it occur where the runs
are smaller and tho birds niorc closely confined all the year round. By us
ing the proper precautionary mens
ures this tendency may be entirely
prevented and u benefit to both the
fowls and the soil from lho treatment
to prevent this contamination from
constant use without any treatment
By frequently turning the soil nnd

oats, rape or any other quick growing
vegetation, the trouble will be entirely

Where chicks are being raised in
large numbers, we believe much
trouble can be prevented if all specimens showing the least tendency to
contagious disease aro removed immediately from the others. How hard
it seems to the inexperienced to kill
off any sick stock for the sake of the
others. We fully believe that 00 per
cent, of the losses in young stock could
be prevented if those showing sickness were removed or killed the moment signs of illness appeared, lt is
better to kill one -lick bird than to
take a chance of losing dozens that
might be most excellent specimens.

Ibis fact the country would have a

of the best result::. No, the care musi

greatest possibilities cannot be realized. When the breeding season is
over it is time to begin to think of
the next season and do everything
possible to prepare the breeders for

Wise Bankers Will Hcip t'nc Wise
Farmers  to  Raise  Stock
Every farmer who lias tho feed and

aptitude for livestock raising and
feeding, should use it. If he hasn't
had such experience he should begin
to acquire It- If he hasn'l the ready
money, bul is otherwise prepare.I, his
bankers ought to be glad to make the
loan for livestock purposes, for it is
not going io slump in value ami every
bushel of corn fed makes the stock
and tlie loan that much better,
I'nder any reasonable conditions
this practice gives the farmer a utco
additional profli on his gralu a

Hogs are easy to huudlc, require
very little Investiueiil lo start with,
and cholera ean he prevented. The
great world scarcity is certain to
iiinke prices lilghor, especially In

im reused   consumption   of     pork   and

their high price, in spite of n more

It is the banker's duly to urge such
a policy ami encourage loans of this
kind: il is real and resourceful banker-farmer work. Illinois figures in
more or less degree are typical of
many of the older and richer States,
and newer Slat'���s und lliose with
cheaper lands can vastly profit by
her short Blglltedness. For example,
not since the war has Illinois marketed as few cattle as this year; not
since Hie state board of agriculture
began keeping statistics 58 years ago
has she sold so few hogs; not in 35
years lias she reported less dairy
cows. A man who doe" not raise or
feed some livestock, who does not
have a proportion of colt-raising mares
anions liis horses, who does not have
a manure spreader working on schedule or a few sheep to clean up, is
not a real fanner and is not .getting
more than a fraction of the return
he would otherwise gat- The banker-
farmer who is not alive to or who is
partly responsible for this situation
and does not attempt to improve it, is
not a real banker.
As soon as the livestock farmer has
made a good start, the silo and paved
feed lot. must follow. Ths silo makes
profits in every direction and a paved
lot permits the hogs to save i.i per
cent, of the corn fed to cattle above
what they would save if fed In the
usual mud lot, ., in addition to cattle
comfort and manure saved. Bankers
know that under proper conditions,
livestock or notes secured by livestock
on feed, is one of the best and most
liquid loans lo be hud. The farmer
must "stock up" and llie farmer-banker is wise who will "stock up" with
his notes.

Attention .must be paid to cooling the cream just as scon as separated. However, the greatest exposure

Gleichen districts it is being introduced more slowly Everything indicates, however, that it enn be profitably raised Ihere. provided care
is exercised in ascertaining th i
source of the seed so thai only hardy
types are used, and proper cultural
operations in the manner and Huie
of Irrigation are i raployed.
Alfalfa is peculiarly adapted to Irrigation, n produces large crops
each year and owing to tho tacl
thai a stand will last for many years
after it |a sown, it is very profitable
there   being  no  expense    attached   lo
It   excepl    Irrigating and harvesting
the crop.
To gel the best results tha land
should be Irrigated for each crop or
eiitting. The yield depends entirely on
tbe care exercised in Irrigating, tbat
is, nn parts of tlie Held should he missed and no parts over-irrigated sufficiently to injure the crop. In this connection it must also be mentioned that, according to reports in
lhe spring of 1914, fall irrigation is
not a safe practice in all districts.
The average yield per acre on the
Experimental Farm, Lethbridge, since
llltifl (the lirst fields were sown in
11)08) of field-cured hay has been
just a little over live tons per acre.
Some tests have been made to ascertain the best, quantity of seed to
sow. The results obtained are given
In the following tables. The plots
were all sown alone, no nurse crop
of grain being used
'i'ha farm superintendent recommends using from 15 to 20 pounds
of seed per acre. If conditions ale
very favorable, i.e., If good rains
come just, after the seed is sown, less
will do, but as it is a crop thai will
remain a long lime on the land and
one that will nol thicken but rather
is apt In become thinner as il becomes older, a liberal supply of seed
is usually Hue economy. The hay
from a thick sland bus finer stems
and so is better in quality.

started from a cold and 1 suffered for
six months with it. I also had stiffness in my joints anil cramps In my
muscles and I felt heavy and sleepy-
after meals. My appetite was fitful
and my limbs wero heavy- Then I
decided lo try Dodd's Kidney Pills.
I took four boxes and received great
benefit from them, That's why 1 recommend Dodd's Kidney Pills."
Every one of Mr, Hill's symptoms
showed that his trouble was of the
Kidneys. Thai is why he got such
benefit from Dodd's Kidney Pills. They

llird hunting if carried on under restraint may be legitimate sport, but
bird slaughter is merely a means of inviting calamity. Take as one little instance the "sealp act" ot Pennsylvania, which paid In bounties Si'O.eOO
for the extermination of hawks and
owls. These "pests" were destroyed
but the small rodents upon which they
fed turned on the farmer and did almost $1,0011,000 worth of damage. Our
bird friends possess infinitely more

The matter of holding up Read's sal-
nry came in for a lot of discussion. There
are several garnishees against it. The
mayor was of the opinion that the city
were not liable to pay it. Aid. Robertson thought it should be left to the lawyer for his decision; if he said pay, do
so. It was then pointed out that he was
the solicitor for the creditors. Aid. Johnston asked the council to wait until he
could send to the place where they had
brains for an opinion. Aid. McKenzie
said these little insignificant personalities occupied more attention than the
city's business.

constable had refused to perform his duties, and he had asked for his resignation, which he understood was in the

to me from the Honorary Secretary
of the Over Seas Club.
Christmas gi��ts for Old Country
There will probably  be  a  gool
deal of distress Ihis   winter iu  the
Old Country,  and our committee
wonder whether you or any of your

I known to you will be contemplating

for distribution in the British Isles,

only too pleased   to   act   as   your
j agents in the matter, and   see  that
I these iifts  are   distribute 1   where
t they will be of much  good.   We
j are in touch with  all   the  leading
charitable organization 1 in London,
I and have done a great deal of work
of this kind.    Practically iu   every
case the steamship companies  have
been good   enough   to   cany   the
goods five   of   charge,    It   see ns
rather   premature   to   talk   about
Christmas gifts,   only   matters   ol
this kind require a lot   ol  arrangements in a Ivauce."
