all," said Miss Lavinia. "Hut don't
torment mc now; keep your own counsel, don't breathe a word lo lhe child.
I wj'll lull you what our friend, Dean
Chance, says  when 1 hear from bim."
On Tuesday morning, Aliss Lavinia
received a letter from Dean Chance,
which was short and to the point:
"My Dear Aliss Lavinia, I am glad
to heiir fron you again and to receive
Information, both with regard to your-
self nnd your sister Octavia. 1 am
sorry poor Octavia is in bad .health,
but 1 am glad ahe has got a nice companion in Barbara Chance. I knew her
father exceedingly well; he was my
cousin and greatest, friend; 1 cannot
possibly understand why the girl
needs to earn her living, for 1 know
he Insured his life for at least, two
thousand pounds for her. ln addition
she hud sonic, little money, which she
inherited from her mother. 1 will, however, consult the lawyers, Messrs.
Parkes and sunningley, and let you
know if there is anything to conceal,
but 1 cannot think that there is. The
child lias always been a sweet child;
1 am sorry that she is obliged to earn
her bread. Of course, she belongs to
perfect gentry, both on her father's
and mother's side.
"I am, dear Lavinia, your sincere
"James Chance."
Aliss Lavinld could not gel much out
of this letter. She told Miss Octavia,
however, that it was (juite satisfac
tory, anil that she was, on no account, to breathe one single word with
regard to it, to Barbara.
"1 am glad, of course," she said,
"for 1 cannot be too particular with regard to the person who is so much
with my sister. The Dean's letter per
fectly satisfies me, and we will treat
the child with every consideration.
She evidently is not so poor as we
thought; but perhaps she is of a saving turn of mind and wishes to put
by against a rainy day. If so, I respect her all the more for so doing,
and shall treat her accordingly."
Meanwhlla Dean chance, having
sent oft his letter, sat for some time
in a puzzled attitude in his luxuriously Iltted-up study in the cathedral
town of Kxham. He liad been Dean
of Kxham Cathedral for long years.
Me was n man of about sixty years of
age; tall, with white hair, and a most
dignified presence. He had been present when the Hector was buried, and
bud seen little Barbara in her bitter
grief. He had said a few words to
Ik. on that occasion; but when he
wrote to llnd out where she was, he
was told that she bad left her home
suddenly, and lhat nobody knew anything about her. "How strange that
she should have become reader to poor
Octavia lienslowe!" be said to himself; "a disagreeable, poor woman,
very. But Barbara is so sweet that
she would make anyone love her,"
thought lhe Dean. "Well, I'll go to
the luwyers and lell them that J hnve
found her address at last."
Accordingly he went up to London,
and wus shown into the offices of
Messrs. Parkes and Sunningley. By
this time they had given up their
search for Barbara in despair; they
were amazed, therefore, when their
old friend, Dean Chance, entered the
room. Air. Parkes was the llrst to
greet him.
"No news, my dear sir," said the
lawyer. "Tbe girl has managed to
hide herself as absolutely and completely as tliough she didn't exist. 1
must confess " feel anxious about her
���so young, so pretty. She hasn't
even taken any of her clothes with
"And vou knew the reason why she
has left?"
"I am afraid I do."
"Can you tell me?"
"That I cannot do."
"Is it a- good reason, or a wrong
"It is a very terrible reason, but it
has nothing to do with Barbara."
"Well, I can, at last, tell you where
Barbara is," said Dean Chance.
"You can!" exclaimed Mr. Parkes.
"You can!" He jumped to his feet In
his excitement. "Let me cell Sunningley.    This is news Indeed."
"I have got Information about the
child in the most remarkable way,'
said Deiiii chance, whon sunningley
ami he bud shaken hands, "Site bus
gone to a house In Vuiixhull .ridge
iioud, where two old friends of mine
���at least oue oi' them would   feel

"But whui bus happened in lhe

owned, wus [llll of intense curlOSlt) . I
"Why   should   she   hide   herself   from j
lier friends?   And I happen to know    j

(To be t! on Unin di
Government Behind tbe Banks in Effect's. Preparations to Meet All
Tho   financial strain or threatened
and actual war, which bar, been so severely felt in olher countries, is being
admirably met. in Canadn
At a conference enrly 'his week between the. Finance Minister iiiiiI representatives of the .Canadian Bankers'
Association, lho whole situation was
carefully considered, und effective arrangements made to meet, any unusual
demands on the Canadian currency
mid banking system.
The provision of most importance
to the geiierui public is the announcement of the Minister of Finance authorizing payments in Bank Notes instead of In gold or Dominion Notes.
In other words, the public may continue the usual custom oJ paying
money in "hills" as we cull them, of
$5, $10. $20 or other denominations, issued by our Chartered Bunks, as well
as In bills issued by the Canadian
Government. Tradesmen, transportation companies and all putllc offices
will continue to accept these bills: as
they have always done, ami so far as
our currency is considered lhe war
will have no effect.
The government's readiness to give
the Banks any support they may re-
'quire coupled with their own exceptionally strong position iu reserves of
ready cash, should allay any uneasiness which might he felt by depositors. In times of war, as In limes of
peace, the safest place for private
savings is undoubtedly in the hand.,
of our Banks.
How Flowers Are Fertilized
In order that fruit may come on our
fruit trees and bushes, it is necessary
that the blossoms he fertilized, and
this is carried out either hy insects,
such an bees, Hying to one (lower, getting dusted with the pollen, and then
flying to another, where tlie pollen is
rubbed off, or by the wind, -which
blows the pollen from one blossom
to another, or blows the various dowers together. In greenhouses, however, where some of the choicest
fruits, such as peaches, are grown,
this natural fertilization is impossible;
there are probably neither bees nor
wind under the glass. In order thut
the fertilization may be affected, the
gardener takes either a eamelhair
brush, or, for the blossoms that are
out of eS-h reach, a rabbit's fluffy tail
tied to the end of a stick. With this
Hie pollen is collected from one flower and dusted off on to another very
effectively, and without injury to tlie

The   Sea-Horse   Family
Visitors to tlie Children's museum,
Brooklyn, have recently been entertained by the graceful movements of
some sea-horses swimming in a salt
water aquarium. They tro lish, but
they look like knights of tlie chessboard attached as heads to coiled-up
Their horse-like heads end in a
mouth like the end of a pipe. Tlie seahorse watches a tiny shrimp until
this comes near its mouth; then, witli
a sudden darting motion, accompanied by a distinct click, it expands the
mouth-tube, placing it over Hie shrimp,
which is quickly drawn, it on lhe current of the water produced by the

"The male lish takes ull the care of

In  "Insect  Biographies   With   Pen

plight of the unlucky fly who has entered Mrs. Spider's parlor;
It is struggling to escape from tlie
unexpected nel which In some mysterious manner hus suddenly enveloped it when a creature of terrible aspect hastily rushes out upon it. Eight
head-like eyes glare wildly upon the
terrified Uy. A large, hairy and bristly
linger-like-palpus on each side of tills
appalling face waves and flourishes
with angry menace in the air, apparently quivering with malignant glee.
Then one of those combed and clawed feet is stretched toward tlie hapless prisoner, and the threads that
hold the fly are suddenly tightened Up
as the monster pulls them together.
Then the spinnerets eject a shower of
silken strands over the fly, and It is
spun round and round on tlie threads
that hold it until at last it is secusely

Trapping a Coyote
The coyote is one of the sliest ant
lu.rdest of all fur bearing animals to
trap. He delights in digging up traps,
springing them, eating the bait and
otherwise disturbing- the set without
getting caught. His sense Vf smell Is
very acute. The best way to trap him
is to build a bonfire over the sot after
lhe. traps have been properly placed.
Throw into the embers some bacon
rinds, chicken bones or, better yet,
bones ot sage hen or grouse. The coyote habitually searches about camp-
fires for stray bits of meat nnd Is
there less wary. The lire obliterates
the traces of Hie set, eliminates the
tracks and smell of a human being,
and the odor of the burned meat will
attract him from a long distance. He
is more likely to walk into the trap
thus disguised with the remnant; ot
a camp-fire than any other unless you
hr.ve a carcass literally surrounded
with traps with a severe winter on nnd
no other carcasses within mi.es.���W.

Artistic Temperament Cured
It will be news to many of her my.
iads of admirers to hear that that
noble artist Tiliens "used to suiter
from a bad temper, and in these outbursts she felt a strong desire to
smash anything that came handy."
How Titiens was ultimately cured of
the habit Mr. Gaiu relates in his reminiscences: "She was sitting at supper
after a concert in a provincial town
when the manager made some remark
which annoyed her. As usual, she took
the first thing that came to hand, a
soda water bottle and flung it at him.
The manager was sitting at the ta_le
with liis back to the window. The bottle missed him, smashed through the
window and nearly killed a casual
passerby. This, said Titiens, gave, her
such a shock that she was completely
cured of her failing."���Pall Mull Caz-
The lirst "birds" were .ot much like
those of tbe. present time. The pterodactyl, supposed lo bo (he pioneer ot

monster, with great speurs un tlie
binges of the wings and a moulh full
of sharklike teeth. The pterodactyl
did not sing, and could we have seen
him wc wouid not have felt like singing ourselves. True birds, and especially the warblers, are very late In geologic, time. There was no bird melody
in the carboniferous jungles. The singers, in all-probability, did not greatly
antedate t_e human race.���New York

Canadian Patriotic Fund
The promoters of the Canadian
Patriotic fund are sending out
literature advocating the forming
of branches of this Society in every
place possible, and sending all funds
collected to the central society.
This proposition does not appeal
to us. During the Boer war thi..
society collected a vast sum of
money and after doling out a few
dollars here and there, had the sum
of $77,000 left over, which the pro
moters still profess to have on hand

Timber Resources of B. C.
In the vast forests of British
Columbia 360 billion feet of the
finest mature timber is now awaiting manufacture, Cuttings at
present a notint to less than 2
billion feet a year, which is but a
portion of the annual forest growth.
Far larger markets for the timber,
therefore, must be found; and thus
the Provincial Government, assisted by the Department of Trade and
Commerce at Ottawa, is leading the
industries concerned in a commercial campaign, both in the existing
markets, and in those now being
made accessible by the opening of
the Panama Canal,
Some of the largest mills in the
world are in British Columbia, and
the cutting and manufacture of
timber is the most important business iu the Province. The number
of saw, pulp, paper and shingle
mills is over 400, and their output
for 1913 wasvalued at $30,000,00.
The Supreme importance of the
forests and of the industries dependent upon them have made the
prevention of forest fires an im
portant matter of public policy,

the Government Service. The

In connection with the wreck at
Lazo, it is stated that the wireless

vicinity. This does not seem altogether right. There is generally
a tug or a steamboat at Comox and
always one at Union Bay. If these
places were notified, vessels and

As n result of the war and accentuated by the German atrocities
a boycott of German goods is becoming general. One firm in Victoria, winch has a large agency for
German goods, is now substituting
goods of British origin. It must
also be remembered that German
production has iu most industries
practically ceased, and" therefore
the merchant needs to find other
scources of supply, It was a black
day for the Fatherland when the
military caste, that of the Junkers,
succeeded iu entrapping the German people If a revolution is
avoided in Germany, either during the war or immediately after
the war, it will be a wonderful
event. In the meantime, what
may be termed the "goodwill" of
the German trader has disappeared
and the wonderful trade connections worked up by enterprising men
of commerce to such an exteut that
Britain was compelled to look to
ber own trade position to avoid
being driven out of business, all
this has gone like a faded dream.
While, it would be bad taste to
advocate "flag-wagging," at the
same time one could wish for a
greater display of the Union Jack,
the symbol of freedom.; Let it be
.proudly hoisted to the top of the
family cloihespost each morning,
and hauled down at sunset, and
when people ask "What ye mean
by this service," let them be told
that but for the power and the
security, the freedom and the silent
strength, represented by that Elag.
Canada had been as Belgium today.
When we read of a girl of six years
of age, whose hands have been
lopped off by German troopers, the
fact being vouched for by an
American, there cannot be too
much emphasis given to the display
of that dear old rag which, floating
all over the world and upon which
the sun never sets, is a guarantee
in itself that oppression shall be
punished and that cruelty shall be
visited by stern reprisals, We
have never made enough of that
Flag, and now is the time to turn
over a new leaf. A Britisher lean
doff his hat when he sees the Flag,
and feel proud that he has the flag
for his own.
At a time when the hat is being
freely passed on behalf of the
Patriotic Fund, it is only seemly
to remind your readers that to give
to that fund at  the  expense  of
other charities is hardly proper.
By all means hive, but to give in
addition to what one usually gives
to other hinds, For instance, it is
said that the Wesleyan clergy of
Ontario are suffering through the
diversion of money to 'he war
funds, at a time when their expenses, like everybody else's, have
gone up; Church funds all over
Canada are feeling the pinch, and
it has been necessary for the Anti-
Tubercit'.osi. Society to ' remind
subscribers that their work 011 behalf of thv poor sufferers must go
on. and that they will need the
money to carry on, as before.
Mention of the Patriotic Fuud
brings to mind the method of administering that fund; in Victoria,
so far as is known, the exact
method has yet fo be decided, but
there could be no better way than
to copy out the system followed
out in the case of strike pay, viz,
to allow so much for each child in
addition to the sum for the mother,
aud, departing from the strike
method in one particular, send a
cheque weekly or fortnightly, To
dole out food tickets is surely an
insult to the relatives of the man
who is patriotic enough to leave all
and go; to distribute food is to invite trouble because here again the
recipitents are entitled to say what
they shall eat. To send public
spirited ladies around with money
is to place a burden on their
shoulders such as no expert financier could bear, and even public
spirited ladies are as liable to make
mistakes as anyone else; also there
is the risk that the applicant with
the longest face would get the
lion's share on the round of the
lady in charge. With all its risks
it is safe to say that the cheque
method is the best and least likely
to cause friction. There are some
people whose "no"|is more welcome
to the ear than the "yes" of others
and in the same way there is many
a woman w'io would rather starve
than have a well-meaning but
blundering relief visitor enter the
house and criticize the breakfast
table, for instance. Just as the
recipitents of a pension from the
army' navy or civil service get the
instalments in the form of a cheque
and cash the warrant produly and
without shame, to spend and dispose cf as they think fit, so in like
manner tbe people who are to receive help at such a time like this,
should be allowed the same honourable way, without intrusion upon

It is refreshing to hear of tenders
being called for the erection of tlie
Eaglish. church in Courtenay,
Apart from tin. natnr_ of the work]
itself, and besides the fact of it enabling many men to keep going, it
is typical of a sprit of optimism ''11
Courteuay which must have an
early reward. In too many places
the war has been made the plea fur
closing down and curtailing wholesale, to an extent unwarranted and
tending to bring about a panic.
Those responsible for the building
deserve all support and commendation, and there could be no better
"boo��t" for tlie district than to be
able to say that when other communities were dead nud despondent
Courtenay went ahead with another
church, One wonders what the
dedication of the church i.s to be.
and how the memorable year of
the war is to be woven into the I
name by which it shall be known 1
Shall it be St. George's, the name,
of the patron saint of England or
is that dedication not broad
enough? Shall it be St. David's,
as emblematical of tlie fight against
the German Goliath? That
savours of a conflict between the
Welsh patron saint and the shepherd king. St. John would seem
to be more suitable, the fiery nature
combined with the capacity of
ardent love, of the apostle and
evangelist being somewnat of a
parallel to the night of Britain
tempered with justice and mercy.
But we shall see. and iu lhe meantime one hopes to hear that the
work has been started. It is a
splendid opportunity for perp.mating the memory of those who have
fallen or who shall fall before the
war is over, known and unknown,

According to the statistics of the

usually marry at 26, but marriage at
the age of IT, is not unknown, and _,-

30 years was 18,00(1. The decline In
tlie figures after this is rapid; only

Salt Water Fishing
The total value of salt water lish
in first hands landed In Canada during the month of Hay, 1014, amounted to $1,7-1,1.9, which is 373,056 less
than the total for May last year. The
falling off is due largely to the fact
that, tlie Lunenburg banking fleet was
prevented from getting to the Magdalen Islands for bait till much late.1

"Master  Humphrey's  Clock"
There has just come into the. market the famous old relic which gave
Charles Dickens the title of liis story,
"Master Humphrey's Clock."
It is a grandfather clock, inscribed
with the name of the maker, William
Humphreys of Barnard Castle, and
tlie date, 1820, with a dial of brass
and silvered metal, in a tall case of
Dutch lacquer, with architectural top.
William Humphreys was tho son of
Thomas Humphreys, a watchmaker of
Barnard Castle, whose shop was opposite tlie King's Head Inn. where
Dickens spent six weeks In 1837 while
studying tlie Dotheby's portion of
"Nicholas xickleby."
Tlie clock remained In possession Ot
its maker until his death, when It
was acquired hy the father of the, present owner.

In nearly every instance where oil

the masters claim excellent results
from dripping oil through a s.tort piece

his best returns, and he can tell you
without Hesitation. Upon this hangs
liis chance of stiecesu. Farming ib a
business of many parts, but few farmers have any correct idea of Just what
portion of 'heir mixed operations pays
them best. The modern method of
profitable farming is not all work on
the fields, but considerable "head
work" is made to count in final reckoning. To use tlie head to best advantage it is necessary first to find
Out what is wrong and what is right
with the farm operations. There is
only one real way to do this, and that
is by figures. Figures talk in farming,
and the quicker more of our farmers
fet busy and by a simple method of
ookkeeping find out for themselves
what makes tlie old farm pay its way
and what keeps it from paying more,
the better for all.���Farmer's Advocate.

Never as Popular as it is at Present
Dancing in the woods was the old
manner ln tlie classic times, and
mythology tells of tlie worship thus
paid by Jie pagans to tlie gods. The
poets sang of it. The pries'.! of Mars
were the principal dancers in tlie sacred rites to that diety. Theie was
also the religious dancing alluded lo
in the Old Testament, as where David
danced bsfore the ark to express his
joy and th:.t of his people, and there
were the dances of the Druids round
the altars and the mysterious stones.
Never, perhaps, in the history of the
world, was dancing more popular than
it is today���not even in the pleasant
times whin in England, Ireland and
France the people danced on the
green. Oliver Goldsmith, travelling
ou foot, pa'd his way by playing for
the dancers on bis flute.

If You Trespass
Trespassing, is defined legally to bt
the entering upon the land of another
without his permission or against his
will. Trespassers may be "peaceably
ejected." Damages, nominal or otherwise, can be claimed for trespass without actual loss having to be ; roved.
Actual damage to hedges, crops, etc.,
may be dealt with as a crime���malicious damage to property���and th��
punishment may be a fine or a term
of imprisonment. It is an offence ta
set man-traps or spring guns en land
as a protection against possible trespassers or poachers. A trespasser ao-

has never done damage before, lie
