nre now In progress.
UBEIUI.I* OPPOSED IT.
Under the act which Hon. Martin
Burrell, Minister ol Agriculture hnd
pnsaed last session—nnd which by thc
wny the Liberals opposed—no ten
than ten million dollars iB appro-
proprinted (or the encouragement ot
agriculture, thc amount to be spread
over ten years. Thc sum ol $700,000
la allotted this first year and this
amount will he increased by 1100,000
annually until 1917 fiom which yea
until $1923 $1,000,000 will be provided yearly. The gradual expansion
nnd growing es-ulpment of the provincial organizations it is felt, will bc
met in this way more b/dpfully than
hy start ng at thc million mark.

The marriage of Mr. Maurice Quain,
(an account of which we give below
taken from the Victoria Times) to
Miss Ella G. Cocker, will be received
witb many expressions of congratulations from his many friends. Maurice made friends wherever he went
and though he has remained a long
timc*| single may he also remain a longtime married to enjoy the union he
hu so recently made.
Mr. Quain is manager of tbe Quain
Electric Co., whose head offices are
at Cranbrook, having also a branch
is Medicine Hat, where the business
ot the firm is increasing so rapidly
that Maurice is going there himsell
to make his home. 'Hia Interests,
however In Cranbrook will call him

Commission Sits
Sitting of Agricultural Commission at  Cranbrook-
Many Useful Suggestions Offered
Last Monday morning the Agricultural pommiBBion appointed by the
Government met in the Government
Buildings at Oranbrook, to enjuire
into the interests and needs of the
Agricultural requirements of the district; tiie i', i in ni i**,-, 11 hi incidentally
enquired in to ether issues having
bearing upon, tho matter iH interest
ing citizens'with nn agricultural turn
if mind to locate in the country in*
stead of continually flocking toward
the larger cities.    The chairman   ol
the Commission cited eases wliere the
people from the Old Country and
Knstern Cnnada wore all Mocking to
ward tho const cities and in a way
bocomlng ft burden to the authorities
as well ns (l disappointment to them
selves.
It were far better i-i the settler
would give more thought to remain
ine on the lands and properly cul
tlvating the Same thnn becoming Inhabitants of cities already overburdened by too largo an inllux of inv
migrants. The interest the various
Provincial governments throughout
the length and bnadth of Canada
arc taking in the farmer and th
material help which is being offered
to them makes It more to their ad
vantage, and more interesting to tht
family to have a dwelling of their
own and n piece of land to cillttvati
from which thoy cnn produce foi
their material help and prolit,
The Commission made several en
ipiiries as to the possibilities which
lay in the future whereby the farms
of a district, could he connected with
the nearest city for the benefits o
communication and co-operation.
Much stress was laid on the ad van
tages of the co-operative system ae
applied to farmers in the sale o."
their produce as well as to the benefits which would accrue it cheaper
money, in the way of loans, wen.
made by the Government for the de
velopmcnt of the strips of lund taken
up by the settler.
Attending tills Commission were a
large number of farmers nnd several
interested citizens, beside various
members representing the Agrlcultu,r
ul Association and the Farmers' In
stitute,
The Com mis don was composed o
the following gentlemen'
W.  H.  Hay ward, of Duncan
J.   .1.  Campbell, of Nelson
W.  Duncan, of Comox
S.  Shannon, of (-loverdale
J, Kid ston, of Vernon
C.B.Christenaen.   Sec.   Victoria
Thc    first  farmer  to  give  evidence
hefore the Commission was Mr. John
Levitt.     Mr.   Levitt   stated   that   hi
hud for a number of years had souu
."(M) acres  of  Innd  near    Koit     Sceil
upon which he went  in more for Cat
tie   and   dairying.      The   principh
breed of cattle which he stocked wa
the  Shorthorns   from    which be had
met with a considerable amoi nt o
success.    Cpon some part of the land
be had  to inoculate it rs the hlltnui
in  the  soil  was  not altogether sulli
rbnt   for   successful   growth.      Upon
hei ii;;  questioned  by  the chairman as
to the  po.Hlbility  of establishing  a
Co-operative   Creamery   in    the    dis
trict,   he   stated   that   tbe   poBslblli
ties were good and should meet with
distinct   success    The   chairman   ex
tended   the  suggestion   of soft cow*.
for a basis for a successful creamer)
and Mr. Levitt said he thought they
could |>e obtained without much
trouble. One trouble Mr. Levitt had
was with tbe labor market, he always found a trouble to get suitable
men to work on the farm. The wane
ffered were good being about $*r*
month and bonrd. In clearing the
Innd for farming purposes he found
tbe early days thHt it cost lum
an average $138.00 per acre, but
he Uio light it could be done considerably cheapei now as tbe price of
stumping powder is very much less
price now thnn formerly. Mr.
Levitt is now going in more for poultry and butter and eggs, all of his
produce  being  disposed  ol  locally.
A. It. Smith, president ol tbo Fur
mors' Institute, stated that a considerable    number    of    settlers    were
coming   into  the  district,    in  reference  to an  enquiry  irom  the  chairman Mr. Smith said that there was
good   money  in   poultry   and  tbat a
considerable   number   cd   the   snu.U.r
farmers   were   taking   poultry   up  en
tlrely for   the   benefit   ol    the    eggs
tbey  produce  (or  which  tbey  are obtaining   4flc   per  dozen   just  now  and
in   the   winter   months   from   75c   ip.
Interrupted    by    the   chairman   Mr.
Hay ward  stated  tbat   under  the cooperative   movement   ae   Dunc&n,   In
the year or  1910  they  handled  31,000
doz,   e__fl;   1911   81,000;   1912   154,000;
and  already (for  1913  they  had  handled over 2!.0,00fl dozen; wblcb goes to
dhow    that    if   some  movement  was
made   here  for  all   the  poultry  dealers    at*    they    hail  at   their   home  it
would  be better for  them and obtain
for them much better prices for their
produce. Mr.  Smith suggested to the
commission   that   a   better class   of
stock be brought into the district for
)r ceding  purposes.     In   the   majority
all tbe hecf now raised in the district
was taken up by the lumber and construction camps;   in referring   to the
meat  sold   in   the  stores  he   ventured
to  say  it nil  came  in   from   Alberta,
thus  prov inr  tbe    possibilities  that
lay  in  tbe future in  cattle  raising.
He also recommen led that a fumigation station be placed in the district
a*, the majority of the fruits brought
in were flrst  of nil s*nt to the coast
and   then   sent   back   again   to   ('ran
brook, much to the detrlmint of tht
fruit in uuettion.     Upon hei ig questioned by Mr.  Kidston of Vernon, he
saitl  that   it  was uot  so much iu the
fumigation that the trouble lay, but
rather in the repacking.     Mr.  Smith
made  strong  references  to  the  unexpired   ti miter     leases    which   covcre I
Some 100,000 acres or more,  whlcb he
thought  ought  to  be  thrown open to
tbe  settler.
Ita H. Manning stated that potatoes, currants and gooseberries
could be secured from the local producers In sufficient quantities to hup
ply tin- local demand, but that apples, strawberries, raspberries, peach-
months this year, which had never
Mote local fruit could he purchased if the growers knew more
about packing and were provided
with tbe necessary crates and boxes.
The average prices paid for these
fruits .on the local market for the
past  three    years    were  as    follows
Strawberries,    (8.00 per crate;   raspberries, per crate,   $2.50; gooseberries
and red currants.    $1.40;    black   cur-

German Government Considering Vast
Scheme of an Internal Waterway
It Is rumored that the German government is considering very closely
lhe question rf building a cnnal link*
Ing the Rhine to the North sou. Several schemes have been before theni.
the most practical being lhat of Ileri-
Josef Rosenlli; er, a leading engineer
of Cologne.
The projected canal would begin al
Wlesdorf, neur Cologne, on the right
hank of the Rhine, would run parallel
to th.* river us far Dulsbui-g, and
tbence In a straight line to Dltzum,
near Emden, on tbe North Hen. The
whole length would be lii miles, the
averag ■ depth SH feot, tbo average
breadth i ts i -,-t. The cost of construction Is estimated at 160,000,000,
Tiie principal argument In favor of
ihls canal is thai It win allow the
Rhine steamers to reach tbe port nf
nortbern England and of the Scandinavian countries much quicker than
Is now possible. It Is calculated that
tho voyago trom Cologne to Emden
and hack by the now canal can easily
I iadi by : ii ordinary Itlilne steamer In seventy-nine hours, whllo tha
same steamer, taking the only available rout.* rlc Rotterdam, now lakes

Britain and Europe From the

Silver aud gold articles made in
Great Britain and Ireland rrom tho
year 1303 were required to be marked
with a maker's symbol or initial letters, says the "Queen." In addition
it had beeu ordained in Ihe year 1300
that, a leopard's bead, or. more accurately, a lion's head, should also be
stamped on every piece. This head
bore a crown until the year 181.1.
In tiie yean 1545, In addition to the
maker's mark aud lion's head, it was
ordained that a lion passant should
be placed on all silver. From March,

Why Should I Use
Cuticura Soap?
. "There is nothing the matter
with my skin, and I thought
Cuticura Soap was only for skin
troubles." True, it is for skin
troubles, but its great mission is
to prevent skin troubles. For
more than a generation its delicate emollient and prophylactic
properties have rendered it the
standard for this purpose, while
its extreme purity and refreshing
fragrance give to it all the advantages of the best of toilet soaps.
It is also invaluable in keeping
the hands soft and white, the hair
live and glossy, and the scalp
free from dandruff and irritation.
While its first cost is a few cents
more that) that of ordinary toilet
soaps, it is prepared with such care
and of such materials, that it wears
to a wafer, often outlasting several
cakes of other soap, and making
its use, in practice, most economical. Cuticura Soap is sold by
druggists and dealers everywhere,
but the truth of these claims may
be demonstrated without cost by
sending to "Cuticura," Dept. 7M,
.Soston, U. S. A., for a liberal sum-
plecakc, together with a thirty-two
page book on the skin and hair.

Rain And Lightning.
Bain and lightning are very closely associated, bul. not in the way mosl
people suppose," said an expert on
electricity after a recent thunderstorm. The fallacious supposition
arises from the observations made
during thunder storms by people wlm
reason wholly from what they can see.
Wheu the thunderheads obscure the
sky every peal of thunder ia followed liy an increased downpour of rain.
Since lightning precedes the thunder,
it seems reasonable to conclude that]
the rain Is caused by the discharge
of electricity. The reverse is true,
however. When the air of the thunderheads, heavily laden with moisture
and heavily charged with electricity
comes In contact wllb a cooler current of air, the moisture condenses,
becomes water, and ttie condensation
frees the electricity. The liberated
electricity rushes along llie lines of
which is charged to a normal degree,
or to another thiiuderhend which
Is charged in a lesser degree.
The movement of thc electric current,
after condensation, is so rapid that
the whole process is complete before

Why  doos    quicksilver    run away

Quicksilver is not silver, but it baa.
a silvery appearance. The strict
chemical name for it moans water-
silver, says ibe Children's ICncyclo-
podla. but the uame by which it i«
generally known Is mercury. Quicksilver Ih not a kind of silver, nor a
mixture of water and Bllvor. nor anything oiso but It-s-a-if. It belongs to
ihe group of the metals, like gold and
sliver, lead, Iron and so on, but It in ,
unlike all other metals ln being liquid
ai. ordinary temperaturos. Quicksilver is very heavy, so that even iron
and lend can float ou it-
Tbo tiny partloles of quicksilver
have ;. great attraction lor each other.
The roiisoii wo cannol pick up quick
Bllver Ih that It Is liquid, Helng a

that Is whal happens when li Is

Sir Wilfrid l.ttiirfcr Will l,e remembered in history as tin* man who
could not learn. Time was «lien the
Liberal leader had some reputation
dr political sagacity, That tnu-lin-
passed.
Perhaps sir Wilfrid is no longer as
good n Judge nt political conditions
and of public sentiment as be used to
lie. Perbars In* in sunn uled by!
pour advisers where I irmerly he hail
good oms. Wlmtever the reas n, the j
result is plain. •
ABOVE THK   PEOPLE.
Sir Wilfrid l.anri'r plunged his party into ruin on the reciprocity issue. I
but never would admit that he was
wrong, choosing rather to put him-
set; above the great ma'orlty of th
Canadian people.    The same unswerving self-eonlidence wub shown in h -
conduct on the naval issue.    His own
policy waa a failure, if indeed he was
e.er  really  Bincere  in  his disire lo
evtn  a  tin pot  neutral   navy.       Yel
when the Borden nnvnl pro. osal »■»•

He did this apparently in n passion
of resentment, stn'ing everything on j
tha c'lnncc ct forcing a general e!c> j
tion when it might not be too lati i
to hold  together a  rennint of  the
Liberal party on n campaign ol mis
representation.
POLITICAL OUTCAST.
Prior tn the aesiton Sir WH'rid
Lauri r bad planned a loir ol the
West. He wns warned against tak
ing this tour nud for onco he hee.l u
the warning. He toured On tin loam
Quebec and found himself political
an outcast.    Yet he has not learnod.
PROMISED. HUT—
mile made tbe solemn  promise tlm-
he would not muke the n wnl (l_3
ton n i iiity issue. He forgot tbo
promise. He had received urgent ap
I eals from Liberals all over i Hna.li,
to leep the navy out of politics. He
iinornl those aprculs. lle made the
luostton a football iu the worst and
must disgracefully unpatriotic ii -J-'
ever put up by an npiiositi.il in Par

ASH LOST AOAIK.
He lost again.    With the aid of lii.
tools in  fie  Senate he s .ccetded ii

iven yet b: has not learned.
He wan*s to a_ n tour Ontario

enough- but Its proper enforcement

Much af the lo-t- to crops, buildings

railway fires In cultivated sert'ois of
the Prairie l rovttices could he avoid
:d if the farmers would laise h »i,ic
non-combustible crop on a st'ip o
'anl ad acpnt to railway rights o
way. Alfalfa is suggested in thh
connection, since (hs crap will not
burn and a narrow st.'lp would f >rm
a thoroughly eftlel n fireguard.
Where clover (an he grown successfully, It will answer e;iunlly well. Tlu
.'lowing oi  potatoes, beets, or otlnr

Street Paving
The paying ol city stretts with
wood is agnin coining into favor,
new methods of laying the pai e nents
making this cn. ol the most satisfactory of pavements. Vancouver's pavements are largely of the same mater.
al. Eighty-two per cent of the new
l^ivin * in Minneapolis is wood-;,lo:k,
and Ha.batch'wan and otber West
rn towns are gi.inj t„ wood-block
.laving the preference,
Hest results are obtained f*om ue
tan fulnr-shaped blocks cut from Southern or Norway p ne which is thor-
oughiy ser.son.d nnd ereoEottd. Thi.
latter process not only lengthens the
life of the wood, but reduces its ab-
sorptive capacity for water, thus pre-
ianting the weukenin*: of the wood-
Hurts und reducing its tendency to
buckle. The most approved method
< t la*, ing this pavemfnt used in Lon-
don, New York and other large ci-
ties, Is to first muke ft toncrete fotln
dation four to sii inches thic; on
which is laid * thin li^er of sand, or
h tt, r still, of melt Portland em
ent, Into which the bloaks ure c'osely
set.
The bloc' s are from five to nine
incheB n depth and must be free from
defects. Care must be taken to Place
them with thc grain perpendicular to
the ro:id-hed. If laid with the long
cd.n'eu ut rislit angles to the curb tbe
joints arc apt to 1 e-ome wo n by the
lutlks on the horses' shoes, so to prevent this nnd to pro.ide for possible
expansion, the pavin; is laid at an
ungl* of about sixty-seven degreeB
degrees wllh the curb. The joints
ure usually f lied with ground cement
nnd the surface of the paving Is ihen
covered with a thn dressing o
conrs; sand, which heds int. th*
pores of the blocks nnd rout-hens
them.
Such n pavement hns the smoothness of asphalt and will last ulmo't
without repair for fifteen years un-
der ordinary condit'oni. lt ls sun
itary, noiseless, ensily kept clean and
has a certa'n springiness lacing in
us. halt, nnd so is much easier on
hor.es' feet. Expert 1 ibor is nit re
quired in its laying and thi cost o
maintenance is practically n 1, so
that from the standpoint ot ccst a,
well, it compares favorably with the
asphalt, macadam and brie; now be
ing used in Canadian towns nnl ci-
tis.
The manufacture of wood-blocks for
paving would furnish siwmill ottnaeR
with a means of utilizing fie mnny
defective logs of Norway pint unfit
for saw material, and, could n ster
dy market he developed, much of the
waste in connection with the present
lumbering and milling operations
could he avoided.

The Tell-Tale Thumb.
The thumb confesses the man; no
man is clever enough to deceive it.
ll has been divided into threo parts,
typifying the three qualities that mas- j
ter the world—will, logic, and love.
The first, or nail piialange, signifies
will; the second logic, tbo third,
which is lhe boundary of the Mount
of Vdmis, love.
When the thumb is unequally developed and lln llrsi phalange is ax-j
tremely lung, i< is neither love nor
logic that governs lhe individual, bul
merely sheer will. If the middle i-lni'l-
ango be muoh longer than the llrsi,
reason predominates; yet the mini
may nol have the power to will himself lo do lliat which his reason dictates.
Wheu the third phalange Is long and
the thumb is' shorl, man is revealed
as tho slave of lho senses, guided
neither bj will nor reason.

topography of Kent, published in 1667,
a copy of which was in tho library:
"A monstrous tlsh shot himself

of water ho died, as tlsh sometimes
do under such circumstances, ills

JAPS IDEA OF IDEAL WIFE
•Ix Essential Points He Holds Absolutely Necessary te Perfection
Mr. Icblba is a clever and
famous Japanese author, better known
however, for his eccentricities that
for his literary ability.
His last wife died ln April last,
after ten years' patient endurance of
•ho literary temperament, and llie
mourning spouso Immediately set
about finding another partner. He
commissioned all his friends to keep
their eyes open for a suitable person,
and gavo a stnndlng order to the various matrimonial agencies in the capital to reoort Immediately any likely
candidate for the honor ot being the
second Mrs. Ichlba.
Ho laid down six primary conditions which the successful candidate
would havo to fulfill.     They were:
The lady must have passed through
all tbo various conditions of lite and
•the various phases of society from A
to Z, ns only by ripe experience can
perfection bo attained.
Except the clothes she should Bland
np ln she should have no worldly poi
sessions whatsoever.
Sho must be severed from her family entirely.
She must contract to keep tho kltoh-
*n and bathroom absolutely spick and
span and ready for instant use.
Her style of halrdrcsslng must h*
<x la mode Japonalse—no foreign frills,
nads, switches or toupets to be permitted.
She must stand five feet high ln
her tabl, and her limbs and body be of
a proper plumpne-ss—as to face, feat-
uresjind other points, these were no*.
to matter.
Mr. Ichlba looked over forty-seven
candidates hefore helng satisfied with
a woman 28 years old. whoso exper
lence of life appears lo have been such
as to meet with the eccentric author's approval.

CANADA MUST IMPROVE HER
LIVE STOCK PRODUCTION   !
What Is lo be done In order to |
build up the meal Indus.Ty of Canada?!
Then.1 wtll bi* HUlo uro for abattoir,
it tho (armors do not raise, animals
for slaughter therein nml lho tiuostlon
is now net so much huw enn we export
our surplus meat, but rather how cun
wo Import enough meat to food ourselves.
Canada, like othor growing countries, Is already facing a shortage in
meul Buppty, Tho population is rapidly lucreaslug, who,ens the supply of
cattlo, sheep and hoga Is decreasing
rapidly, In several provlnecs the
hetual number of outtle, sheep and
hogs is less than live years ngo. The
breaking up of tho ranch and range
country in tho west Into small farm.!
has mado serious Inroads into the supply of beef and mutton from that territory, and bas practlcully out off the
supply of thin young cattle which
formerly were shipped to Ontario to
bo finished over.
Grain farmers of the western provinces are being urged by experimoit*
al fnrm worUm'S, rarmers' Institutes,
livestock and farm papers to diversify
Ihelr running not only for safely as
to returns, bul, as an Insurance against
tho time when fori lilly will he so depleted that yields of grain will he no |
longer profitable,
Llvo stock Is a safeguard, not only
for the farmer, but would ho n big
factor in helping to solve the car shortage problem which is so acute ovory
fall. Grain farmers all want to
market thalr grain at the samo time
and get the money. Sheep and steers
can be marketed every day tn the
year, provide a safe revenue, and distribute lhe traffic for the transportation compan-es. Thero Is at pro-
sent a market in Canada for nil live
stock produce ond for all kinds of
smoked meals, lard, ham and bacon,
so tbat the market Is bore with good
prices. As the population increases
Ihls market will grow.
One nf the greatest drawbacks
against wore llvo stock ln the wost
Is the fact that Canadian banks are
not. allowed to accept live stock as
collateral for loans, whereas in the
United States nn enormous and pro-
fitable cattle loan market Is done by
largo cattle loaning companies who
get behind tho beginner In tbo live
stock business nnd carry him until
the returns come In from his Investment.
It 13 generally supposed that the extremely low temperatures which prevail during tho winter in the west
are absolutely prohibitive of the successful and economical handling of
llvo stock. As n matter of fact,
much of the best beef sold In Calgary.
Edmonton and Winnipeg tills spring
was fed out. In tho open air last winter with no shelter, except a few
buildings, and here and there some
haystacks or very cheap sheds. Northwest winters are no harder on live
stock than the winters of Outarlp.
Although the Province of Alberta Is
unusually well equipped for producing
cheaply mutton of the finest quality,
largo quantities of frozen sbeep and
lambs nro eaoh winter brought In
Trom AiiL-tralla and Now Zealand. In
addition to the large number of live
sheep and lambs driven across the
border from Montana and Wyoming.
Ono thing our farmers and stock
raisers should learn 4s that tho home
market Is the best. The cattle embargo bas combined with other causes
to make shipping catilo to Liverpool
unprofitable. Indeed, several firms,
formerly large exporters of cattle,
bave practically ceased their shipment to England.
Again, the Canadian market, Is better than American markets, for tho
Canadian farmer and rancher will almost uniformly get a better price net
at Edmonton, Calgary or Winnipeg
than he will at Chicago. No more delusive argument was put forward by
the advocates of reciprocity than the
argument that the Canadian cattle
raiser would be benefited by freer access to the American market.
Some Western Canadian stockmen
have been led by Chicago market reports and rumors of an acute shortage of finished cattle In the United
States to ship their finished cattle to
the Chicago market. In the case
of the first large shipments of catlle
made from Alberta to Chicago this
fall the market was unusually favorable and entirely abnormal. Cattle
for that week touched tbe highest
prices ever known in Chicago stock
yards, so that the Alberta cattle being carried along with the current,
sold for a few cents a hundred more
tban tbey would have brought on the
same date in Winnipeg. Tho success of this shipment led numerous
other ranchmen in the west to take a
chance on the Chicago market, with
the result that ln every case, so fur
tbo net prices received for stock
would have netted at Calgary. Edmonton or Winnipeg. Western Canadian
prices for beef, mul ton and pork nro
regulated by supply nud demand.
Wllh the west each year importing
larger quantities of moats from Eastern Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand, It is obvious
Hint prices for finished products in
lho west must he at least on a parity
with prices for those products In other
countries 'from which they aro exported.
Tills general subject will ho found
discussed nt great length In tho last
annual report Issued hy Pr. ,T. G
Rutherford, as veterinary general of
the Dominion Government, which was
extensively quoted from und comment
ed upon at the time by The World,
The general subject <»f the languish
lag meat industry of Canada was the
subject of a lengthy debate in the
houso of commons about a yonr ago
and it is a fair surmise that the present government Intends in some way
to encourage the Industry. Unfortunately, tiie cold climate of Western
Canada aud the natural deslro of tho
new settler to get a quick return from
his land and to pny for his farm as
quickly as possible militates against
tho Industry. Ill the end, however,
the farmer who raises some livestock
and wlm foods his frosted grain will
como out ahead, and unquestionably
the country us a wh.,le will be greatly
benefited by more mixed farming lu
Eastern nnd West eru Canada alike.
Indeed, tho situation is becoming so
(."rave as In demand tiie earnest and
early attonllnr of tho Dominion and
provincial governments, Nothing, perhaps, will accomplish ao much ns a
campaign of publlelly and education,
which Will convince tho western farmer that hi- will benefit himself and bis
land by raising live stock. And in
this connection It Is to bo hoped tbnt
lho government when revising tho
Dank Act, will permit loans to he
made to the farmer upon the pro-
duels of hU farm, Including both i;rain
and live slock.
Tho lesson cannot he too Strong*
ly impressed upon Ihe farmers of the
noribwe-t, tint the growth and proa-
norlty or the live stuck and meat business of tbe country depends up,™
an ample aud steady supply 0/ live
stock being furnished to the packers
and butchers scattered over the country. Without ample supplies and
raw materials these people cannot op-
orate economically.' so lliat It is greatly to tho ben. tit and profit of the farmers to keep a steady supply moving
forward In order that the home market may be maintained and developed
and the host prices established for the
live stock grown wlthlu thc provinces.
!     ILLNESS OP THE CZAREVITCH
I Malady of tiie    Middle    Ages    With
>    Which Man/ Princes are Affected
In Russia, a recent pronounce-
I ment of the czar's physicians concern-
j ing the illness of the czarevitch—Uiat
the boy is a haemophilia or a bleeder
—Is tlio subject of interesting comment In the current issue of the Hospital.
»It. Is slatad that this strange and
terrible malady, whoso victims bleed
excessively after comparatively slight
injuries, has occurred at intervals
among tho scions of European royal
families since the middle ages, und
lhat at present many princes are suffering from It.
In popular language, tho victims of
this constitutional tendency to bleed
excessively havo been said to have
only one skin Instead of three. The
truth Is, of course, thnt hemophilics
liavo just, as many skins as any ono
else (to wit, cne); but that their hlood
lacks to a greater of lesser degree
that power of coagulation or clolting
which in normal' persons leads to
natural arrest of hemorrhage after
any except, vory serious injuries to
large blood vessels,
At tlio, present time It would seem
that hemophilia is more prevalent than
ever among princes. The late duke
of Albany suffered from it, and eventually died of it, The second son of
the king and queen of Spain Is said
to be afflicted by It, and to bo incurably deaf In consequence of hemorr-
hage info the Internal ear,
Humors are also current that the
E-Ohenzollerns aro not exempt from It,
aud that some of Queen Mary's relations are hemophilic to a slight de-
Tbe disease hardly ever occurs In females; but it Is handed down
almost excessively through the female
line.

feels unbounded eratltiulo for the hen-
fits obtained from the use ot Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
For years he had suffered from a
congested condition of the liver and
kidneys, with headaches, backaches,
pains in llmbc and body. Words
fail to describe Ills sufferings as well
as thfl gratitude ho wauls to express
for the cure.
Mr. Alev. .T. Stone, WAftt Point.
Nfld.. writes:—"I suppose you
thought. I had forgotlen all about you
when I got Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills, but. I haven't, .'ou must excuse mistakes, for like many Newfoundland men I have not much education, but I want to thank you many
times for your medicine.
"I cannot tell ynu what. I suffered
from liver and kidney derangements,
indigestion and constipation, nor can
I find words to expresR how much
good this medicine has done me. I
feel bettor than T have for five years
and have given some of theso pills
to friends, who tell me they have dono
them a wonderful lot of good. I want
to express my heartfelt gratitude for
the benefits derived from tltc great
medicine."

Pretty Personal
In one ot the large cities a street
ear collided with a milk cart nnd
sent can after can of milk splashing
Into the street. Soon a large crowd
gathered. A very short mau coming
up had to stand on tiptoe to see past
a stout woman In front,
Goodness! lie exclaimed. What an
awful waste.
Tho stout woman turned nround and
glared at tho Hltle mnn nnd said,
sternly: Mind your own business!
What Matter WhlchJ
When the news became known, his
fellow-clerks gathered around and congratulated him.
But, said one man doubtfully, I understand the girl you're engaged io
Is a twin. Bit awkward, isn't it? How
do you'tell Ihe difference between hor
and her sister?
Tho man who had just spent six
weeks' salary on an engagement ring
smiled Indulgently.
Tut! That's all right, they're a Jolly
nice family, anyway, and I never
bother very much which ono it ls.

Little Jack, aged live, bad accompanied his mother ou a trip to the
city.
When the conductor came around
to collect the fares, he asked the usual question:
How old ls the boy?'
After being informed the correct
age, which did not require a fare, lhe
conductor passed on to the next person.
The lad sat qulto still, apparently
wondering over something, then, concluding that, full information hat! not
been given, be called loudly to tho
conductor at the other cud of the car:
And mother's 155.

• ULTAN'S   HOUSEHOLD   IN   MAR
OF INFIDEL
Women of the  Imperial  Harem In a
State Bordering  Upon  Panto
In Constantinople there waa undoubted consternation at Dol-naba-?-
hcheh Palace, which the sultan inhabits whli hia household.
Tho fear that the Bulgarian army
may after all manage to break through 1
the Tchatalaja lines and enter lho'
city has become active in the minds |
ct thoso responsible for the safety ofl
the city, and this* fear has been communicated to the royal palace. '
Every preparation for flight haa
been made, floats are ready in tiie ■
13or.porous adjoining the palace
grounds, and the flight to Asia, flrst
to Scutari and thence to Broussa,
could bo accomplished at a moment's
notice.
Nevertheless, the women of the lm-]
perial  harem,  with their attendant?, j
numbering many dozens,   are    In    a
state" bordering on panic, and the chief 1
eunuch has been making daily rounds
of tho apartments, trjlng to reassure
the female members of tho household I
that thero is no danger and that the I
army Is still able to defend the capital against tho infidel.   But with air
theso efforts there is undoubted panic j
iu the harem. j
Thero are no great treasures to take 1
away. When Sultan Abdul Hamld
was dethroned hts priceless collect*j
ions were confiscated and distributed,
so little of great value was left io his
successor, and YUdi/ Kiosk, where
Abdul Hamld lived, was closed permanently. The new sultan remained,
in his old home, where lie had been a
prisoner for no many years.
Klamll Pasha is constantly In attendance on the sultan, who await?,
with feverish anxiety any reports trotfl '
the front, hoping against hope that
victory may yet come to the O \o-
man nrma.

Thieves    Loot    Jeweler's     Shop    In
Something Like a Record Time
In Paris n theft ot about   $60,000
worth of Jewelry was carried out with I
extraordinary daring and In less than j
Ave  minutes in a Jeweler's shop  at
the corner 01 tho Place de 1'Opera iu
Paris, early yesterday morning. 1
A fortnight ago tiio Soclete Gener-I
ale gave up its little branch ofllco next
door to the shop of M. Here, the jeweler, at No. 4 Place de rOperaf The (
Jeweler took ever the premises of the!
bank to increase his own space, nnd
tbo wall between, tbe two bu.lldln.jg
Is partly down.
Tlio inquiries mado by the police
lead them to believe that the thief
spent the night in the premises which
recently belonged to the Soclete Oeneral e.
His opportunity came when at 7
o'clock this morning the watchman
went outside tho jeweler's shop to
wind up the Iron shutter. Then the
thief must havo slipped into the shop
through tho hole lu the wall, and
rifled the many cases ot jewelry standing ready to I is hand.
Whether tills theory he true or not,
there Is no doubt that the thief got
clear away With maty valuable rings
and a diamond necklace and othor
jewelry to the valuo of $60,00.0.

HER MEMORY LOST
Woman Put Into Hypnotic Trances In
Effort to Discover Her Identity
A   very   strange   and   remarkable
mystery of tho Identity of a young
Englishwoman In Paris who completely lost her memory eighteen months
ago is still unsolved,
Tall nnd slim, blue eyes, chestnut
hair and a bright, happy disposition,
this young Englishwoman when I
saw her recently, appeared to be
about 30 years of age.
Sho Is supposed to have lost her
memory ns tho result of a ahock. Al
one time, when Dr. Ie Meuant dea
Chenala, the eminent nerve specialist
in charge of tlio case, put her Into
a hypnotic trance, she gave the name
of Alice Meadows, hut on several occasions ahe has declared that her real
nnmo U Winifred Courtney Henderson. In her trances she never aus-
wercd to any name but "Winifred.
This statement appears to be confirmed hy the Fact that she has a trunk
bearing tha Initials 'H.C.H.' Theae
letters are supposed to represent the
name or an uncle, Herbert Courtney
Henderson.
The woman says that she was horn
In India and lhat sho remembers Simla nnd Bombay, and that her father |
and undo woro ofllcers In tlio British
army. Sho also remembers a certain Captain Andrews who used to
visit her family.
In hcr childhood, she says, she had
a governess called Bella, who left to
marry a Mr. Harding, and they may
have gono to live at Chatham.
' When Bella left lo be married Mls-j
Henderson went to a convent at Ipswich. The details she gave of this
convent were so complete that the.
Abbe Her noli, who has conducted
many Inquiries for the young woman,
accompanied her to Ipswich to teat
her Btory.
All the particulars she gave of the
convent and the neighborhood and the
names of the streets were found to
ho exact, but at tho convent no ono
hiif w her.
Before leaving it she recalled that
she wns shipwrecked between New-
haven and Dieppe when traveling with
a woman.

Do You Value Good Meals
and Perfect Health?
There is only one way that people can be assured of keeping food in proper condition during the
heat of summer, and that is by putting everything on
ice in a receptacle that is perfectly sanitary. Have
your own private cold storage plant-a refrigerator.
It will maintain health and comfort in the most trying period of the year. It is sun-proof, fly-proof and
germ proof.
AND GET A GOOD ONE
When you sre Keiting a refrigerator, be sure to get a Rood one.
A poor refrigerator allows the ice
to melt away to rapidly and proves
the more expensive in time. We
have the BEST.
LOOK AT THIS ONE
This handsome refrigerator is made
of selected ash, golden oak Anish,
thoroughly kiln dried. It is trimmed with bronze lever, lock and
hinges, galvanized iron lined, with
removable shelves and automatic
syphon trap. It is guaranteed in
every respect.
