Life in British Columbia
An interesting Article in the Empire Magazine
The followiDK rondnble article wider tbe above caption aii-Huiru la the
Oetober number of thc Umpire iu.-irh
line published in London:
"Brltleh Oolumbla has been culled
thc land of 'muf-nlllcent dletancee
ft would he fur truer to wiy of thle
or any other mountainous country
that the viown are nenernlly narrow
tn the valleys at any rate, one Is de
cldedly shut in. Here and there
from high' places, or, of course, from
the tops of mountains, one cnn see
fnr and wide. One such view may be
•een from thc now rotid on Long
Pake trom un altitude of 600 fiwt
above the Inke, anil 1,900 feet above
the sea. Oue cnn nee tho Oold Rungr.
which is 70 or 80 miles nwny. Another equally line, thouch not so
extensive, view mny be seen trom tho
escarpment on the rond through thc
Shuswap Valley. It Is a view which
were it situated in Kurope would
call loudly to nwny thousands of vis-
tors every yenr. Uritish Columbia
bus also been culled the land of
great opportunities. Wc nre proud
of its resources. But the description
savours too much of the dollar. A
minor poet addressed this country
the other dny us the 'Lund of last
hope and latest victory.' I don't
quite know what he meant by 'lust
hope.' At any rate, it wus not a
misprint for 'lost.'    But let It puss.
"None of these phrases seem to me
to hit tiie null on the head. We
need „ description which has some
relation to the life of the people, as
well as to tbe physlcnl aspect of tbe
country. It is a land of incomparable   Incongruties,    A bird's eye view
of the country would betray a huddled muss of mountains trom the
Rockies to the Pnclflo const. Range
upon range of mountains everywhere.
Thre;.' main ranges between the Rockies nnd the ocmu,Intersected, buttres
fed. crossed here und there and every
where hy ragged foothills wblcb
broaden out. In places into vust pint-
euui from 4,000 to 5.000 feet in
height. An absolutely Impossible
country to live in, one would say
except from tbo point of view of the
eagle. But It Isn't. Thc valleys,
thc hed-i of ancient lakes or glaciers,
nre among the most fertile ln the
world. Almost anything belonging
to the temperate, zone inuy be grown
in thom • • • The amount of vnlley luud ls small, of course, com
pured to thc vast tracts of mountains nnd plnteaux. But the writer
ventures to predict thnt some day,
and nt no distant date, many thou
sands of ncres even on tbe highlands,
w:ll be cultivated and inhabited. Bo
this Inhospitable, bleak and barren
country belies itself from the start,
It is quite other thnn lt seems. Visit in thc long, and to most people
dreary winter, nnd you would Bny
that no deciduous tree could possibly withstand the steely blast from
the north. But It is not so. Apple,
pear, plum nnd peach trees thrive.
The Oak, (though rarely planted),
tbe walnut, the filbert, the beech,
oven the so-called copper variety, all
do well In sheltered localities. Tbe
growth of these trees under tbo in-
ttuence of thc hot summer sun is prodigious, but sturdy as well.

early date, as the winter season was
the best time to do suchwork.

Strikers Justified
Board Upholds Strikers on all Salient Points-
Await   Decision of C.P.R.
•Men:
Ottawa, Dec. 9.—That tho members
of the Cnnndlnn Brotherhood of Railway Employees of the Canadian Pa-
clllc Railway were Justified in their
demand for a board nf conciliation and
In the resultant strike which followed
Its rofusnl by the minister nf labor,
Is bourne out in the majority report
of thc hoard which was later appoint
ed two weeks ago and which this afternoon brought down its Uniting.
The report which Is signed by .fudge
McGlbhon of Brandon, Ont., chairman
and by J. A. Macdonald of Halifax,
representing the employees, fully
Justifies almost every claim made by
thc men, nnd is considered hy the off!
cers of thc Brotherhood to moro thnn
vlndicnte the position which they took
throughout. The minority report of
J, E. Duvnl ot Montreal,who was up-
pointed by thc department of labor
to represent the compnny, upon the
latter's refusal to he represented, ban
not yet been filed with the department, but it is believed that though
it does not agree in every particular
with that of the majority in certoln
vital points it Is an agreement.
The dispute between the members ot
the Brotherhood affects, it Is said,
.-i.OOO men engaged iu thc clerical
freight and bnggage departments of
the C.P It from const to const. Recognition of the schedules was asked
tor from the compnny, together with
Increases of pay averaging 75 per cent
The minister o. labor, after considering the application of the men decid
ed that a board would not be justified
and that the investigation of the dispute would Involve months. The
strike was therefore called and is
still on. The general disorganization
which has ensued especially at the
lakes during the grain moving season and the consequent representations which have been addressed to
tbe department on tbls account, final
ly induced the minister to grant a
board for a limited territory, it being generally understood that tho
finding would apply throughout the
system.     The board   held   its   first
mooting on Nov. 89, nbout two weeks
ago and Its report Is now ln the hand
of tlio minister.
FINDINGS  ON  VARIOUS
POINTS
Thc report nt the outset commends
tbo minister for limiting the scope of
I the enquiry  and recommends as follows:
; 1. —The Btiikers should be relnetntod
in their old positions forthwith at
the same salaries they wero receiving
at the time of the strike.
2.—The strikers should receive back
pay for tbe time they have been on
Htrlkc.
3.—Themon who were discharged
for their connection with thc Brother
hood nf Railway Employees should be
treated as strikers, receiving the
same treatment.
4.—Incrense of salaries is recommended, hut It Is left tn tbe parties
interested to arrange nt a future date
r..—Tbls report is to cover all districts affected within the scope of tbe
application.
The hoard theu lays down certain
rules which shall povern the members
nf the Brotherhood regarding seniority, vacancies, appointments, otc. It
further decided that tbe schedule re
enmmended shall take effect irnm Muy
1, 1912, and shall remain In effect
for one yonr, and from year to year
thereafter.
Time aud a ho.t for overtime, public holidays, and Sundays is recommended by the board.
COMPANY TO ABIDE BY
AWARD
lt is understood that Mr. Duvnl, in
his minority report, recommends the
reinstatement of the men. No communication in connection with the
award has been received from tbo
company, but there is reason to believe that an amicable agreement will
be renched, and tbe minister is confident that the company will abide
by the award when it is presented.
The recommendat nn, however that
back pay be given to the men for tho
period during which they wero on
strike inuy be opposed T,y the company. The strike was called on Nnv.
■I, and the men have now beon out
(or over llvo weeks.
The strike will be continued until
the company hns decided upnn what
course it will pursue
JlrdgQ McGlbbna Who acted us chair
mau o the board, lias acted ia llko
capacity nn no iem tban ten arbitrations, some of which ooncornou tlio
biggest railway disputed in Canaan
Ho hus the further distinction c.I having every award he made faithfully
carried out afterward.
President Mosher, of the brotherhood, when seen tonight, was thoroughly satisfied with tiie result of bis!
offnrts and thoRe nf tiis fellow officers
and is optimistic that the award will
he carried out by the company. At.
n meeting uf the Ottawa division this
afternoon three cheers were given for
Judge McGibbon, the minister uf labor, ond President Mnsher.
BOARD FOR WESTERN
DISPUTES
Ottawa, Dec. 9.—The minister o* labor has consented to grant a board
of conciliation In the mutter nf thc
iispute between tho employees and
the owners of the Metallurgies mlno
of the Kootenay district in llrltlsh
Columhla. Between 15 und 'itl mines

25 cents per day. Thc mon are imt
hoWever, sat;s!ied, and bave applied

Women's Institute
MOTTO-"For Home and Country"
The Women's Institute was favored
wltb the reports of tbeir representatives to the lethbrldge Dry Farming Congress some six weeks ago.
Tbis may seem to some a llttlo late
to receive thes-> reports after so long
a tinv ban Intervened; but if our
readers were better acquainted with
tbe large amount of work which the
members of the Institute have recent
ly accomplished and the amount of
lnhor attached to the ideas they are
trying to promulgate, surprise would
give way to wonderment, and hesltan
cy would take a back seat to enthusiasm on these Indies- behalf.
When we consider the duties attached to the hnme which every woman (and especially InBtltuto women1)
in the city is carrying out in a proper manner with respect fnr the res
possibilities pertaining to that station, and in many cases parental duties tn be tn! en Into account, the
work ths Institute is doing in the
city of Cranbrook today has reason
to call fnr e-frlutuutions of surprise.
We hear on nil sides suggestions
for the improvement of the spars
hours of the young men of the city,
the Y.M.C.A. wns hullt prlncipnlly
to detract young men from thc evils
wh ch we know exist; and now we
have tbe Men's Club in course of
construction, to be used for tho
same purpos* at the Y.M.C.A., only
in a much broader and better sense.
Rutwhat nbout the young women of
the city? There are those who nre
residing In the city, away from
home and the childhood friends, and
those other friends they have made
in later years in other places—aenar-
atlons caused partly by the calling
they separately follow—what of these
It may be said here that the ground-
workor foundation of a plan tor providing help towlle away the time
and provide somethin,: for the »inr<>
hours thnt exist In every young
Indies career was nne of the reasons
for the founding of the Women's
Institute.
The work which Is being orgnnlxed
lor the winter season Is worthy ot
every woman's best tnonght. The recent visit to the city of Mrs. 0. T.
Townley nud Miss A. Taylor, of
Vancouver and New Westminster respectively, both government experts
in their particular branch of ladles-
work, Is but a pnrt nf the privileges
pertaining to tbe interests nt thn Institute. Dressmaking and Needlework Is now bring considered nnd It
can be safely tnken thnt the end of
tholr resources nre extended towards
many other plnns for the helping uf
the   ladies   of   ths   city and which
plans are now occupying ths attention of the Institute. Whnt about
the young women!
Provision should nlso be made for
their comfort and pleasure ns well as
the young men. Render the assistance which lays best to hand and
we could then have in the city a
Woman's Club, and rightly so, as
well as a Men's Club.
Six weeks bave gone by since the
Congress Sessions opened, Monday
afternoon, October 21,1912, when tbo
flags of fifteen nntlons waved peacefully over the young city of lethbrldge.
These fifteen nntlons represented a
world-wide movement, showing tbe
brotherhood of nations and the
world's interest in agricultural development; they, hnvlng heen Invited by
the government ot Canada to meet
ot lethbridge to participate in whut
Is now a great movement.
Many of the delegates travelled
linlf-way around the globe to study
the work of the Congress and to
lenrn the system of agricultural
work represented in dry-farming.
The Women's side ot fnrm life received due attention during the Congress; It helng the second annual
session oi thc International Congress
of Farm Women.
Tbe first session op-uied Tuesday
morning nnd continued for four days
with a large attendance at every
meeting. Thc keynote wnn the bet
torment of country life; the lessening
the burdens nf the farmer's wife and
mother; and, the adoption of methods
and devices that will help the women
In tbe Improvement of the home nnd
rural community.
The flrst session nf the Congress
wns called to order hy the President
Mrs. leslic Stevart, of Winnipeg.
Invocation wns nsked by Rev. A. G.
Cameron, followed hy music from tbe
Curdstnn Choral Society. Mrs. Bul-
yen, wife nf the Lieutenant Governor
of Alberta, expressed tbe welcome on
behalf nf the Dominion; while Mrs.
Marshall, wife of tbe Minister nf
Agriculture of Alberta, welcomed the
delegates f,,r the Province; nnd Mrs.
Fred W. Downer, chairman of the local bonrd wolenmol thc delegates lor
tbe city of lethbrldge. Thon followed speakers from Belgium, Palestine
and Australia, bringing greet ngs
from thn women nf their eountrrloB to
the women nf our country. As I listened I could not help being impressed with the tact that theyrcatost
thing In the world, an Drunimond

In the nttornoon an address by Dr.
J. H. Worst, President of the North
Dakota Agricultural College, Fargo,

it any of bis hearers had married u
man too poor to support her he ud-
vised them tn start with fifty chickens and lay by as muchofthe profits

Miss    Ermu  B. Mitt thews, Supt. ol
Oklahoma Women's Institutes proved
to lie a clover speaker in ber address
"Farm    Homes    oi    Our    Country."
Miss   Liln   A. Hnrksus, Prof, of tbe
Dept.    of   Hnme    Science,    Montana
.State   College    ni Agriculture. Boze-
mnn   gave   an interesting address on
'Homo   Economics.'     Sho   told of a
woman,    whn,   just ns she wna coming in with a basket of eggs, slipped
and   broke   a   doren   eggs.     Rnther I
than   see   the eggs go to wnstc, she i
cooked   and at. the dozen ergs with
the result that she wus sick for sever j
ul   days.     She didn't   wish tn speak
on   thnt   kind nf saving, but rather'
how  to   economize  <ur   strength by
hnvlng our homes equipped with saving devices.
Tbeie were many more addresses
by nrominent men and womeo of nur j
land ,,n subjects of grent importance
in our country, among which was the
educating of nur hoys and girls; tbelr I

At this Congress assembled were

The Belgian novetnment manifested
interest and sent greetings from ten

Wealthy Parents,
Seeking Assurance of
Safety for Mother and
Child Do Not Grudge
$1000 a Day to the
Doctor
/F IT comes high for a millionaire baby
to make its debut into this world, there
are reasons—reasons which, in the estimation of its parents, are literally vital, for
ihey apply directly to the outcome as meaning
life or death, for mother as well as child;
mid indirectly, in after years, as health or
weakness, happiness or misery.
Every large American city has its little
froup of specialists to whom the wealthy turn
when that event impends, which, after all, is
the sole reason for the family's existence and
the sole means of its perpetuation*
Race suicide may be playing its danger-
ctts, fateful part among the men and women
whose superior inheritance of vitality, intelligence, wealth and, to some extent, social position have combined to aid in making the
nation what it stands for today. But when
the knowledge is present that a newcomer is
to be looked for, all other considerations
sink into insignificance; and the daughter of
royalty, who is for.nally reported in court
bulletins as being graciously pleased to do her
maternal part iu preserving the dynasty, receives no more costly attention than the
daughter or wife of the American millionaire;
in many instances, she probably gets considerably less.
FOR even the fees ot tho famoue court physicians,
In the lessor European kingdoms, would
scarcely surpass the fortune, at the rate ol
$1000 a day, which wae the attendance charge
et Dr. Edwin Bradford Cragtn, who assumed the post
of attending: physician to the widow of the late
Colonel John Jacob Aslor, when the posthumous help
to 13,000,000 of the immense Astor estate was about
to make hla appearance.
The young woman wbo, as pretty Madeline Force,
was so unexpectedly translated to the position that
ranked her among: the highest in American society
and was so tragically bereft of the husband whose
life meant to her all except the mere millions she
could receive by the antenuptial agreement, had ber
baby In the imposing .\stor residence on Fifth avenue.
A first child, its advent was attended by all tbe
anxieties of a young, inexperienced mother. What
-wonder tbat, with millions of her own, and, with her

Doctor Cragln left his own country place, in Connecticut, at Colchester, lo be at the Astor "mansion
in New York by August 4, to remain there until well
past the middle of September, a period of half a dozen
weeks, bis arrival In good time before the event, hts
stay continuing for an ample period afterward. Doctor's total fees, it was estimated, would approach
very nearly 150,000, The world at large, startled by
so huge a sum, could scarcely believe any physician
could earn the recompense.
But men of his profession who know the ordinary
fees wlileli are paid to specialists of hie class, while
they at first wondered at the impressive total, ceased
to doubt tt after reckoning up the ordinary charges

whlch prevail in society for attendance that doos nut
make such exclusive demands upon the physician's
time. ^
Thoso who were well informed as to tho range of
expenses applying to babies ln other equally wealthy
households had even less surprise to express. Thom
havo heen many babies of recent years, born under
circumstances Infinitely less trying to lho nerves of
tho mother, where thc actual riches are far greater
than those inherited by both Mrs. Aslor and her
child, and where money is never stinted in any
emergency which can possibly call for the magic of
lis wand.
There wns thc famous |100,000,000 McLean bnby,
who had the romantic background of nn elopement to
enhance the Importance of hie debut. The smart
wedding, which hud been planned to unite Miss Evelyn Walsh, heiress to the $25,000,000 of Thomas F.
Walsh, Colorado's Croesus, and Edward 13. McLean,
son of tho multimillionaire editor, of Cincinnati and
Washington, struck lho prospective bride as rather
a ridiculous proceeding; sbo wunted to be as simply
happy as any poorer girl ought to be In the love of
ihe man she had chosen.
SOLID  GOLD  CRADLE
When their son arrived, a couple of years ago. he
was the only child in both the McLean and the Walsh
families, and there was a solid gold cradle awaiting
him, the gift of Leopold, king of the Belgians, with
whom ble maternal grandfather had been closely
associated in finance. The overwhelming riches of the
two families were at the disposal of the young couple
to an unlimited extent, and the birth gifts alone that
poured in on the baby, would have supplied an endowment big enough, if put out ul Interest, to support him In luxury to the end of his days. When
there was rumor of kidnapers for Kaby Vinson
McLean, an army of guardians was straightway
enlisted, and no young prince on whose safety a
dynasty depended ever fared forth under more efficient surveillance.
To the parents of that young hopeful—but more
especially to his grandparents--double the sum It
cost to Insure the Astor baby's debut would nol have
appeared  other than trivial.
What life or death can mean in read.hts to
disregard expense In such a family was evidenced
only a few days ago, when Mrs. John R. McLean, the
treasured baby's grandmother, wus stricken with
pneumonia at Bar Harbor, Me. The recollection of
the desperate quest, by every agency wealth could
command, for tbe one physician in whom the family
bad complete faith la still fresh, with tho mental
pictures of Dr. I* D. Barker's automobile dash down
the mountainside In North Carolina, nnd of tiie
broken speed records across lhe 1000 miles and morn
that separated him from the dying woman, only to
arrive too late.
Just such conditions of great wealth and intense
cherishing attended the birth of little Edith Klngdon
Drexel, the daughter who came first to Mrs. A. J.
Drexel, Jr., that charming young Marjorlc Gould,
whose father Is Oeorge J. Gould, the man who now
may be regarded as the holder of the major portion
of the Gould millions. Increased with time. There is
a whole brood of young Goulds, children of Marjories parents, to share with her ultimately tho fortune of her father; but how well she will fare, and
how large waa the resources at lhe young couples
command, can he guessed at from the |500,000 residence, on Fifth avenue, which was the paternal wedding gift. Little Edith Kingdon Drexel belongs to the
class of children who may cost something less tban
1100O u day for the doctor who brings them Into the
world, because such fees are unusual; but any
untoward incident in the course of thc event would
bring out a willingness to pay whatever charges were
in the homo for which she fought ao hard, nntl ean
do nothing but wait to be put out into the Btreetj
and only at the last hour is something liable to
turn up out of till tlio sympathy proffered that
produces the hard cash to stave off thc disaster.
Where nro they all, not only tho great ones
wlw withdrew with competencies within late recollection, but also the long-vanished slars and that
host of lesser lights, each the proud possessor, in
earlier years, of her thousands of admirers?
The grave, of course, bus claimed its heavy
tolls. But life, too, fights on to do iis pert, leaving to somo large comforts and case, but lo others
anxious parsimony, half-hearted enterprise, the
boarding house often, whero, whether landlady or
lodger, they aro alike thc victims of adverse circumstance.

THE world seldom hears of the ultimate fate
of its favorites of the stage. The land may
he full of dear old soubrettes, distinguished
leading ladies, acclaimed singers, who are
passing their years of retirement in dignified
affluence; or, again, it may be full of just such
women who nro fighting the hard tight against
poverty, too proud to give any intimation of their1
need. Only when the mortgage is foreclosed after
years of desperate, unavailing struggle docs ono
blow that ft Clara Morris is blind on her sickbed
THB typical close of auch a career la where
aome remnant of lhe robe of greatness still
nerves tho turn of shielding the once*Iauded
figure from poverty's chilliest winds. And
that Is the ense ln which rsneweu discovery of genius
may work Its cruelest unkindness, yet may bring
about again a lucky turn In fortune's wheel and
relieve all the needs which the new, distasteful
notoriety discloses.
Such women are like tbe gentle old poet Mistral,
Homer of the insects and Holds, who boasted of
hla own vine and fig tree, his cigars and bin rare old
brandy when Indiscreet charity sought to do him
good with heartrending articles tn the French newspapers, Tliey know how tbe brilliant Louise dn la
Kamee, tbe famous Oulda, fell when she drove straight
down Into Htnrvatlon rather than acknowledge bor
need of food.
Such a woman Is Madame Albanl, once the Idol 0t
the opera and concert stage, only a lj\$ts W
unearthed In London and hastily reported, through
the breadths of two hemispheres, as clutched ln the
grasp of want.
How sho repudiated tbat shameful reproach! What,
she In need? Had she uot her husband, aged though
he was? Had she not her home, which Bhe maintained
in dignity, If not tn new and foolish luxury? Had she
not her pupils, whom she taught singing by the
method which, in the years that arc gone, made the
notes of Albanl the delight of the greatest audiences
that assembled in her time? Away with your pity
and your proposals of charity! Albanl was Albanl
still, her genius still her own, although her voice and
beauty were long since lost to her. Kindly withdraw
and offer your sympathy to Adeline Pattl, who lives
with her great fortune and her handsome young husband In her own castle, and see whether sho accepts
lt any more than Madame Albanl.
But tbe brave show of pride and courage failed to
quilt, mislead; a little longer und thc husband admitted that perhaps they did have a hard time making
both ends meet. And It wuh apparent that thc refuge
of tho great singer, instruction in her art, provided
but a thin defense against the ever-waiting wolf outside the grimly guarded threshold.
How many are there who remember that Albanl is
an American, who made the charming choice of ber
stage name from that distinctively American city,
Albany, N. Y., and made her debut only forty-two
years ago?
Nor has the thus far wholly abdicated lhe throne
she won so quickly. Kvery year she haa given a concert In London, where her fame Is ono of the national
Institutions, to be accorded a patriotic reverence. For
Is she not among tho most honored survivors of the
Victorian eta, that unloved queen's expressly lauded
model of the good, Irreproachable wife that every
prima donna should be? Did not Victoria bestow upon
her the English Order of Merit, which, tht} friends of
Florence v.ftitVhX-h dollglit for many years ere the
<iiiuen»ft consent could he ohtulned?    ......        ,
All these and countless other distinctions have
been hers.   She becume suddenly fsinous In Italy, In

Bellini's "Sonnambula," and England rejoiced to accept her as one of the world's greatest singers.
Royalty, especially all Its scions who were kin to
England's queen, delighted to be her ally. Tho Empress Frederick secured her the appointment of court
singer there. She made the grand tour of Russia,
India and Seuth Africa; she repeated her triumphs
hore and in Canada, again and again. And she retired
at tlio height of her career, extremely wealthy, with
Ernest Gye, her manager, as her husband./
Was not that a wisely ordered life; which of her
•liiler.-t in her art chose better?
Hut the wealth her voice had brought her was lost
through her husband's ambition. He Imagined lie
could vastly Increase their fortune In the stock-
market, iiiid all her savings went iimt risky road.
ENTERTAINED  ROYALLY
Sho returned to tho stage, lu concerts nnd tours;
she matin another fortune. She took u splendid mansion In South Kensington, uud thero royally entertained royalty, for the queen and her Immediate
•family mado Madame Albanl their favorite hoBtess.
Uut of lute years, even the second fortune haa
dwindled. The Houth Kensington mansion Is for rent,
and tbe famous singer lives obscurely enough In a
modest dwelling nearby, giving vocal lessons, her one
other dependence helng a son who has devoted himself to her caro for thu reat of her life.
Tho fute that pursues so many stage favorites has
been hers, perhaps, not In so harsh a measure as In
tneted out to some; yet nufflcionlly startling to the
llrltlsh public, that has regarded her us far above

may ho that her admirers will try to aiSUffl her

startling nnd how swift cnn he the vlclllltUdOl of lho

SAVING THEIR   OWN  LIVES
With Infinite car,; i|lt-y plan -|,.|r

the vitality their work «-• serlnusl*. Impairs. In leet
acute form, but as surely in utility, Doctor narker wa*
saving ids own life by his disappearance Into the easinesses of the North Carolina mountains,
Tho summer is their time for recuperation, o'ften
as gravely needed as the patients can need ihem.
itut tho physician who cannot ordinarily give up blfl
patients for any ono among them docs feel free to
sacrifice himself if either personal Interest In a case,
or a great-fee, prove sufficient Inducement.
l-'ur the case which occurs in a rich but not an
extraordinarily wealthy family, (hn whole term of
attendance calls for a fee ranging from 9600 lo $3500;
and that expense is accepted as a matter of course
by hundreds of parents In cities outside of New
York, by thousands whoso homes are in New York.
The attention given includes all such visits ns may
ho required for the customary care—perhaps not
more than fortnightly at first, but soon Increasing lo
weekly, and then Up lo three times a week, until the
event Is Imminent, when the doctor, unlet', an
emergency arise in a no l her family Unit demands a
few hours, takes his pool as sentinel for the arrival
of tho stork. Uut such emergencies, in practice, are
rarely permitted to arise.
Tho physician of that standing can always ohooso
bis oases, and must, lie has hundreds of other
patients along hia general iin** of work, and almost
Invariably he has hospital practice and prlvato charity work. And his colleagues In tho profession-- mon
with a general practice among lenn prosperous families—fee] that they have a right, which he commonly
concedes, to csli on him in maternity cases which nre
beyond their self-reliance. ITor Ihem be dues, at i.
very moderate charge, what (hey fear to attempt
themselves. S<> he limits his own maternity COSCS to
perhaps a dov.cn, or ti score, foi- a year's practice, ami
then given them priority of attention over all others.
Wllh his year's calendar before him, he can so
select and reject cases of childbirth that every one
allows for a dut Interval before lhe critical Huge of
the next arrives.
To ihe less fortunate men of (he profession, fees
of 12G00, with the cerlalnly of double that if the
caise take on unusually trying aspects, look like so
many fortunes; and so they are. Uut to llie men Who
no readily get them, they represent men-ly ;i duly
performed,   that   costs   more   ti>»n   other   features   of
their practice paying bettor lu proportion io ths outlay of time and anxiety.
The charges Incidental io haby's debut, under
average condition of American society, may \ery
easily double the doctor's fee If It remains at or
near the   minimum;  and  they  can   an   readily   double
n if unfortunate complications raise it to the maximum, Uaby costs, what with nurses and Incidentals,
HOliO at least; and  $10,000 at. most.
■     MONEY   MEANS   HEALTH
Uut not when families of many millions begin to
worry over a favorite daughter, especially If It's her
flrst biiby. The supposed leader of the profession is
likely to be iho regular physician of Uie family; and
If he Isn't, any diHquffling symptom may cull hliu
in as consultant. Tbe attendance charges will rlso
to $0000, with easy possibilities of ?10,ut)0, and even
|U,000; and still the great man doesn't undertake
to give up ull his time for any period beyond portions
of lhe few days Immediately embracing the crisis.
And here the incidentals, expanding Into fields of
gifts and gorgeous layettes, may readily lift the total
to 930,000.
What does the money buy?
'-It buys thos? most precious gifts humanity can
know—life and health," said one of the leading
specialists ln maternity practice. "Tiie mother who
has such perfect care no long before her time, and
such complete protection during her ordeal and after-
ward, comes through It with health absolutely unimpaired, and gives to tbe world a child which Is
equipped for life with the greatest store of vitality
modern science can provide, The Iobccs In childbirth
under these conditions are now so small as to he
entirely negligible.
"Statistics have never been complied for this
class of patients; but my experience has been tlmt
it is practically naught; the insurance secured is so
neur to 100 per cent of j-afety thnt the fraction can't

Christmas is almost at hand, and
the question arises in our minds 11
the true spirit ol the season is being
carried out. "Peace on Earth, Good
will towards Men" is a well-ltnown
saying and appropriately so tor the
time ol tbe year; but there is ano
ther which carries just ns much and
even more weight in importance,
"Hurler the little children to come
unto roe" "Inasmuch as ye do it
unto the least o these, ye do it unto me" is another daylng uf Jesus
Christ. There are homes in Cran
broolr, lew perhaps, but we believe
there ure some, who would not wish
to receive charity in th* sense of
and so we have to be
to the methods of ap
these people. Perhaps
neighbors, or it maybe
friends, who would like to see these
less fortunate folk receive some
thiug of a Christinas cheer, if there
are any such that any of our readers
know of and they will send us parti
culars or give the names- and addresses to the various ministers of
tbe city efforts will he made to provide a good square meal for that day
of ail days—Christmas. In this
world the most beautiful thing in
Charity which gives without hope of
reward or return, simply or the
love of giving, and for the love of

Memorial for Booth
The members of the Salvation army are now actively engaged, from
the Atlantic to the Pacific, In securing the necessary funds towards the
establishing ol a memorial In Cane-
da to the lute Oeneral William
Booth. It has been decided hy the
loaders ol the Army, In thin country that a new training Institution
should commemorate the llle and
work ol the honored Pounder of the
Organisation.
This Is to bs erected In the city of
Toronto, the centre ol all salvation
Army operations In the Dominion,
In whlrh tbe young men and women
wbo    oiler    themselves    as   officers
could be thoroughly and efficiently
trained lor their life's work.
It is the intention to provido accommodations for 125 persons, including Class Rooms, Lecture Rooms
Libraries, Sleeping Rooms, Dining
Rooms, Kitchen, Hospitals, Baths,
Swimming Pool' Gymnasium, Oflices,
etc. The expenditure necessary, ls
estimated at 9250,000, and while this
msy appear a very large sum ol
money, would be' well s.ient, as lt
will bo an investment securing very
beneficial results lor tho future.
At the moment, the Army Is
handicapped In their training operations, inasmuch as the nccomadatlons
of the present training college is considerably overtaxed; the idea therefore of this Memorial ls not only one
of sentiment ht.t of necessity.
Captain Carruthers officer In charge
of the local corps desires to enlist
the. practical co-operation of all the
adm rers of tho late general who was
truly a benefactor oi humanity and
of whom was said in bis lite time
"The poor thy clients, and Heaven's
smile thy fee."

Cooper is a noted breed r of Plymouth Rocks and her paper contained great deal of prnctlenl'lntoreal to

The remainder of thn evening wna
devoted to a scoring cless on Rhode
Island Reds The birds being supplied hy Mr. V. V. Sullivan and Mr.
John I^vltt. One ot thcfli present
handled the birds, presenting ench
section to the oxatnlnnlion of each
person in tli,- class Tlio demands of
the standard were read oil by Mr.
Shopberd and oaeb placed their Bcore
as their judgement dictated. Ths
scores were then called for and a
free discussion us to tha reasons lor
tho same wns indulged Iir nil present
evincing a lively Interest In tho pro
roodings. A few notes on the origin
ol the hri ed were then rfl id from
Brown's work on Domestic Fowls.
With    several    a.perlCI I  breeders
present, tbls nibbing up ol idem, must
certainly result lu greater knowledge
of thn slock for nil ron.vrnetl and

A Cry of Help
On Thursday morning there came
into our ofllce a chinaman, by name
Wong Pong, wbo is currying on business on Armstrong Avenue, with tie
report thut tbe gambling houses in
Chinatown were being run continuously every duy. The gomes begin at 12
noon, r, p.m. .ind it p.m. The reason
loz doing this la to make a break In
the games and to possibly put out
siders off their track, as they can arrange tbe Hire when the games are
not in progress to show possible lu-
,(Hirers that Ihe gair.es are properly
stopped according to tbe bye'aws ol
the city
The appeal lor help is from Wong
Kong and his little nil,, who are al
most heartbroken nt the result these
guinea are having on some of thfllr
relatives, and who, eonse.iuent on
losing so much nt the tables are constantly appealing to then, for help In
a material way. In talking with
Wong Kong we lenrn that he has constantly appealed to the police (or as
si.t'ince and they have only laughed
at iiim and put him off. "See thnt
man. he said, an one of the City Police pnss'-d the door, "1 have told
that man 10 or 13 times nnd he has
done nothing.    Police no good    Who
muat'T Bee?'   What must I do?"
In tbe Interests ol humanity we
took this matter up for him and
placed it In the hands ol the Justice
of the Peace and we are hoping aome
good will come for the efforts he is
making.
We bear that Wong Pong lahav-
lag a petition drafted out and will
go to everyone in the city and get it
signed and forwarded through prope-
channels It the gambling is, not stop,
ped at once.
Tne man ls In earnest aad means
only good to result to bis people.
Tbe house he makes complaint ol
contains eight tables and are always
In use, not only by his own people,
hut olten there are white people low
enough tn associate with these peo-
plfl In their games'
In the interests ol the people he
represents who know that under Uu
new government of China gambling
after the third offence, Is punishable
by death, in tbe Interests ol tba
white men who are not able to
nidge the proper standards of a res
lieolalile city, and In the interests of
the elty itself, these haunts ol vice
and Iniquity should cease and that
fit onn. The cry lor assistance
should not ne let pass unheeded
by any clvlll'rd community or pro-
lessmlly Christian people wbo are
supposed to he possessed of higher
morals, and a better standura ol
Ms.
As a suggestion to those In authority we would sny II only to be
sure that these game* «re nut played
In tbe Iuture. orders should bt given
at once tn hnve ths tables removed
and so remove temptation ont ol Ut

Do Animals Swank?
The d alight fui story of Brer Hab-
bit and Brer Fox will help us to answer thia nuestion in tbe affirmative.
As a matter of fact, animals undoubt-
edly do swank, and the domestic ones
when made-pots of,'will glvo themselves as mnny airs and graces as a
girl iu love.
It 13 this characteristic that, renders
so many of them amenable to training. Tbe writer has known a rat in
a stable to lie on Its side and pretend
to be dead. When tinned over with
the foot 11 haa Instantaneously become very much alive and scooted
for all it was worth,
.\n old horse employed In farm
work would pretend to be very lame
when put ou the milk-churning, which
necessitated hi- u-'.,^ round in a circle, hut directly ne was taiten off he
would, metaphorically speaking, frisk
like a kitten.
The Irish terrier and the collie ate
terrible swankers. They will put
t-p with any amount or petting, hut
directly the victim ia off his guard
tbey will not hesitate to nip.   .
Everybody is funIIlar with lhe
phrase, playing possum, mooning of
course, lying low, or pretending. This
extraordinary llttlo animal, If attacked, stretches Itself stiff upon the
ground. Yo i may heat It, throw water upon I;, and all but kill It. yol when
yon have turned away in the firm holier that it is dead, the little Impostor
will Jump up am', scurry to safety.

"Did'' the Doctor
Tho otliM- day a well-known doctor
was eating lunch in a restaurant and
silting next to a business mun, when
the latter remarked:
I have just seen a case in the to-
l-acconlst's which would Interest you.
There is a man there who has no
feeling at all ln his right arm.
Case of paralysis, uo doubt, suid
the doctor.
Oh. no, lt Isn't; he has been examined by some of the leading physicians
and they declare It's not paralysis.
How long has it  been  so?
Over twenty years, be tells me.
He says he'll pay any doctor a thousand pounds to restore tho natural
feeling.
I'll see hlnl, said the M.D.. and
when dinner was over they went to

Introduced.
Dlil lhls happen all at once? asked
the doctor.
Yes. sir; there was no warning
w'mtever.
Does the arm feel dead?
Perfectly. You can stick your knife
Into It without my feeling It In the
least.
That's odd      Let me feel it.
The doctor put out bis band, mado

heel and loft the place, his faco liko

It wa-. a wooden arm.

The Loading Platform
The pre-jnl sCAeritlOtt ot Wes'.ern finnnrc will never know U>e
difficulties and V'Mtkna experienced by Ibelr predeceasore In the
earlier years when no ono could got a carload of grain shipped In
bulk except ty ioii'.lng ll through uu elevator. The Bystem force*
tho majority of farmer- to sell their grain to the elevator ownere
at arbitrary fries, and oft limes to submit to heavy dockage and
other anhoyanoea, laualng continual dissatisfaction. Now however
lhe distribution ot .are ns fixed by the Drain Act, and tho use of the
loading platform, provide faollltloa whlc'- enable Ihe farmer tn secure
satisfactory 'reatnitnt In tbo disposal or his grain, and the hlgheit
market prices at II.ue of salo. Every farmer thorefore. should more
anil more endeavor to use tho loading phi."ifm ln shipping hla grata
to lho terminal elevators, lt Is lho safeguard of the farmers' freedom In disponing ol hla grain to tho heat advantage for hlniaelf. II
farmers refrain Irom i:slng lhe loading platform freely. II might result In lis being d^ne away with, booaiipo railway companies and
elevator owners ur.» strongly opposed to It. It. Is easy to understand why elevator people desire tho loading platform abolished.
The railway >eoplo on tbelr part say It dolnys thc loading of cars
and helps to canto ear alienage. Thia we knew to bo nonsense,
because frenuently after ears aro load"d whether with grain, coal

German    Pride    Hurt    In
Balkan War
While public opinion ln (Sormanj-
Irom the very outbreak ol tli* Balkan war haa been with the allied peopl*, the Kaiser, in his capacity ot
German general, and Herman officers
have taken a certain interest in the
Turks, a lact whlcb is easily understood when It ls remembered tbnt
the Turkish army has been re-organized and drilled by German officers
and the Turkish fortresses have bcen
constructed by German military engineer*.
One ol the tacts which the war ln
the Balkans has been expected to
demonstrate is the absolute superiority ol German military taction
and German military enginojring.
The result has heen a great disappointment and although, quite naturally, it ia aaid that it is not German taetlcB and strategy which have
been defeated, but the Turks themselves have blundered into disasters,
it eannot be denied that even among
the ofllcers there ls a feeling that
tbe time is passed when Germans
mightclaim to posses absolute supremacy in things military.
CANNOT CHANGK OPINIONS
What makes the position ot the
army officers even more difficult Is
tbat from the very start they have
praised the soldierly dualities of tbe
Turkish troops as discovered hy German army instructors in Turkey;
and now, when thc Turks have been
routed time and again and when
whole regiments of them have been
captured by their enoml'-s, German
officers cannot very well auddenly
change their opinions nnd Mams
everything on the Turkish troops.
There muat be something wrong with
the tactics taught tbe Turks by German officers and with the plan ot
war which General von der Goltz
outlined for tbe Turkish govcenment
with just such an attnek in view as
has occured.
When the wnr first broke nnd was
discussed In every officers casino In
Berlin, everybody mnde Hunt of the
first Turkish defeats and claimed as
did the government also, that these
were merely part ol a magnificent
strategetlcal movement, thc aim ol
which was to entice the Servians and
Bulgarians down on the gr-at plains
around Adrlanople where tliey would
Warships   May   Embarrass
England
Oannd'a naval contribution has
far overshadowed the eastern war as
topic ot ths week In England. Tbe
politicians and newspapers, with lew
dissenting voices, welcome the Iloniin
ion's gilt for its own Bake and us a
memorable step toward consolidating
the ISmplre.
Dispatches Irom Australia and
South Africa report that Canada's
munificence is kindling naval enthusiasm in those dominions.
The report ol tbe gift of warships
from the Indian princes proves to be
a canard. India's financial load is
already ho heavy that Knglish opinion deprecates any attempt to induce tbe native rulers to embark on
new expenses.
If the smaller colonies fall Into
line, Grent llrltliii may Und herself
embarrassed hy oilers of more ships
than she would he ahle to build and
support.
Uncertainty exists as to whether
the government proposes1 to receive
Canada's   ships   as  au   addition to
8.C. Foreits Increast
At least 1100,000,00(1 annually is
tb* value placed upon th* potential
growth of British Columbia forest*
by R. K. Benedict, Cbiel ot operation
In the Forest Braneb ol th* Depart
mentol Laud*.
Bringing the estimate down to Its
very lowe»t, the area ol timber-producing lands In the Province is IS,
000,000 acr**," my* Mr. HeneJI-.t,
"and every acre should produce !00
hoard leet per annum. This would
make our timber crop f,J billion
leet, worth about i;| million dollar*
to tbe Government, and probably
fifteen times that amount to ths
community before It Is In its final
•tat* ol manulocture."
At the present time In Mrillnh Columhla there is helng cut about I'
billion feet per annum. It I* evident therefore, that the lumbering
industry ia lust one-quarter developed.
But before the full expansion can
take place, the timber muat be pro-
tected Irom lire. A dry season and
a little carelessness might combine
•t   any  time to start a blaze whlcb
the minimum fleet considered necessary to maintain naval supremacy or
as a part of that fleet.
Lord Charles Bereslord will ask na-
sttranccs in the hous? of commons
thnt the ships constitute an addition to the English program, not
part ol it.
The only feature of the policy caus
ing uneasiness is the Innovation of
giving the colonies a place on tbe
committee of imperial defense.
The Manchester Guardian says:
"Fcom the English viewpoint we
view with distrust the adm.salon of
a Canadian representative to the
committee ol defense, especially when
he Is armed with the power, lf his
advlre Is not tnken, otwlthdrawlng
nearly hull a squadron from the Imperial navy.
"We are certain that this power
would not be exercised frivolously or
ut a time o. nntlonal danger but
the lact thnt It exists would give
tho Canadian member of the commit
tee more than ordinary influence.
would undermine the prosperity ot
the country. The importance ol preventing Area It is impossible to overstate. The growtb ol th* Province
depends upon the forest.
A Wise Judge
There will not he a man In British Oolumbla outside of the professional ranka who will not applaud
the act lou of Mr. Justice Clement In
stopping aa Important case being
argued before bim In Vancouver last
week. The ground on which he stopped   lt  was   that a Company Inter-
j ested was being wound up In liquidation;    that    no    good     eould    ac-
| erne   and   that   tbe  ends  of   Justice
I would not. be served by contlnulngthe
ease; thnt It was thereforo n needless wnsto of time of the Court, and
I no one could benefit except the legi I I
gentlemen enpagod, who between j
thorn were drawing the not lnaon.1,1-
erable sum ol 11,000 a day In foes, j
AsRimifng. and ono cannot for n mo- J
ment iiisiiiiie anything else, that tho
learned Judge was right in his law,,
the layman enn only rejoice that
such a common-sense decision ahould
be forced to surrender as was the
groat French army under similiar
circumstances at Sedan.
HURTS MILITARY I'tllDR
Spirits are low ln the military
clubs ut present. 'I'he unexpected
fall of Kirk KIliBSeh was au awful
blow to German military pride, so
much more as this aad many of the
uthcr forts around Adrlanople captured by the Bulgarians were constructed by von tier Goltj, aad by
lilm declared almost, If uot absolutely, Impregnable. At any rate tbey
wore not to he taken lesB easily than
wore the forts around Port Arthur
during the Russo-Jnpnueso war.
Tbey fell almost immediately, and a*
tho Bulgarians cannot, be declared
better lighters than the daring Japanese, the lault must necessarily
Iio with the lorts, which must have
had vulnerable points and weak spots
unsuspected by Goltr. Pnsba.
Explanations, ol coursel must be
found, and they nre forthcoming daily. Major-General ImhofI, organizer
ol the Ottoman artillery under Marshal GolU, thinks slow mobilization
is tho secret ot the Turks' discomfiture. He regards their plight as
grave but not desperate.
GERMAN   PRIZE PUPIL
What makes the debaclo ol Kirk
KilisBoh still more unpalatable to
Germany, ls thnt Its defend, r, Mah-
mud Mukhtar Pasha, was one of
Mnrshal Goltz* prize pupils. He had
the advantage of several years' train
ing at the Berlin wnr academy, was
attached to the general staff tor a
pnrt of the time, and did active ser-
ice with tho socond foot Guards at
Potsdam. He ranked In German military circles as aa extraordinary
capable commnnder. How and why
he lost Kirk Kllespeh without a more
stubborn defense is a question bis
old time comrades cannot at the moment fathom, anil t'ie explanation
that his defeat may possibly be due
to thc fact that the French General
Bonnnl is the lather of the Bulgarian plan ol war and that the French
guns of the Bulgarian army are superior to those manufactured by
Krupp, doeB not find favor la military circles.
