great obstacle to development; and:
the population being so scattered over a wide urea the necessity for good
means of communication Imposed a
task upon Uie BOYt.MU.uut whlcb is
huge Indeed. But If that is true, it
is equally ion eet tn siy that ln no
country in the world Is a better effort being exerted to grapple with
that problem, as the people of this
province arc prepared tn testify.
In view nf the fact that the Legislature at the lust session made appro
prlutions for good road work for the
ensuing year largely in excess of any
previous year, it is pertinent at this
tim* to devote some little attention
to a theme which is of such great Interest to the entire population of
this province, road building.
Space permits but a very cursory
examination of the framework upon
which the Road Building Branch of
the Public Works Department Is constructed, and first consideration is
necessarily given the potentiality and
other characteristics of the immense
area dealt with to the fact that
Hrltlsh Columbia, a province of over
400 000 square miles, has a population of less than one person per mile;
that its resources although a matter
of fimazement, not aloue to ourselves
i>ut throughout the empire—and placing the province already on a most
enviable financial position are, practically speaking, undeveloped, as instanced hy the agricultural Industry
whose production lost year was over
$21,000,000. And in this connection
it Is Interesting to note that this is
the first time in the history of the
province that ber production has exceeded her imports.
S:multsneously with the demand
for good roads tn eoable this ever increasing production to he economio-
ally marketed. Is an even greater demand for new highways to give ae-
ress to the hundreds of thousands of
tertite ncres which He ready for the
[<tnueh in the hinterlands. Note
cIho the vast forest ares which al
chough al re uly producing a revenue
to the people of neirly two millions
ner vear, nnd providing material fof
"70 mills He practically unknown and
mcrulsed except In the Immediate
"iclnlty of transportation.
The mining possibilities In a country of which less than one third the
surface hns been prospected must be
aken Into account, concurrently with
the fact thnt already In coal production British Columbia is second only
to Nova Scotia; thnt it supplied all
the lead, 03 per cent nf the copper,
with Ontario shares the silver output
of the Dominion, and the value ot
gold recovered last year won five and
a half million dollars or greater
than the production of tbe Yukon for
the cornsponding period.
Consideration, too. should be given
the Fisheries. And finally our scenic
unset. In the capitalization of wblcb
good roads arc the supreme factor,
but which unlike our other enter-
prises, requires no drain upon tbe
initial gift nf nature. Coupled with
these assets we find that wbut Is a
nations greatest endowment, a people
(if character nnd enterprise, wltb
the result that every section of
the province is optimistic and in*
creasing In Its demand for more
rOftds nnd better roads; roads to fa*
rflltuts travel for business and pleasure; to devclnpe am) enhance tbe
value nf holdings: to reduce the cost
f marketing, and In tarn the cost 0*
Hvim*: also to complement tbe rapid
rnllroad extension and construction of
recent date
To     ln nny way   successfully meet
the
tun
same    time     meet   local   conditions
with tbelr varying requirements,
A plan which whilst Insisting upon
certain given standards of road lied
Is elastic enough to accomodate its-
self to each of the thirty-five divisions already exhi-tting in the province, no two of which are alike in
physical or climatic characteristic, a
plan which can define the trail of the
mountain section, the highway of the
plain, or the puve road outside of
the city in its relation, not only to
the actual territory tt covers, but to
a general comprehensive scheme embracing the entire province.
Krtremely interesting ts road construction in British Columbia, and
probably where more diverse and difficult in character. In certain districts, gravel, If required for road
construction, must be hauled hundreds of miles; In others the drought
must he contended with, whilst the
disposition of surplus water Is usualy
one of the worst problems with all
water bound roads, and to meet the
transportation problem whilst a
round the const we see the traction
engine or steam truck up north the
dog team Is often the most economic
method.
It must be remembered, too, that
tbe changed conditions of recent date
have rendered tbe road building me
thods of even a few years ogo obsolete, not alone bave we an entirely
new means of transport to provide
for, but tbe economic value ot good
roads is batter understood. Then,
too, there la another condition incidental to a new country the general
plan must, contend, with, nnd thnt ls
tbe fact that in tbe earlier days.from
then unavoidable causes, principally
lack of money, old trails, many of
them Indian or game trails or locations that followed the line of least
resistance, were adopted, and often
improved from year to year, with
more regard to immediate necessity
and what wn« considered economy,
tban future utility, with the result
tbat a most careful reconnaissance is
required of existing, ns well as projected roads, not only that they may
conform to tbe general plan as regards direction, but as regards tbe
cost of transportation.
No longer can the greatest promln
eace be given to initial cost, the gen
eral character of tbe road, and the
amount per annum required to maintain It.
The vital figure is the cost of trans
portaUon upon the road when completed, as affected by its length, rate
>)( grades and amount ot rise and fall
Cost of transportation has been carefully estimated by various engineers,
and tbe conclusion reached Is that
although on many of our western
roads it will bave averaged 25 to 30
cents to haul one ton one mile, the
same load can be bandied on stati
dard road bed the same distance for
fl to 10 cents; the enormous waste of
tne post was perhaps unavoidable,but
wltb the awakening on all sides to
tbe ecomomlc feature of the good
roads movement, future loss can he
tery largely guarded against.
Of no less Importance than construction Is proper maintenance, for
it must be bourne in mind that the
average road of this country Is very
miles of ruudwuy. Whilst for the
present year an appropriation uf
${.,000,000 hns beeu provided fur British Columbia's highways and bridges
with the possibility that this will be
supplemented by a contribution from
the Dominion Government towards
the main highway.
In tbe distribution of this sum, ami
entirely apart frum the District
grants, provision lias been made tor
several feature undertakings. ttilt.

moat appropriate to designate any
particular road nr roads as scenic

beauty, kvhen every road upon the
mountain Bide, stream, through the
magnificent forest, nr across the luxuriant lowlands, Is full ot interest,
i-vun the commercial centres at the
coast possess scenic beauty that render them unequalled the world over.
Of probably greatest interest is the
development of the Ibter-Provlnclal
Highway plan—which, whilst In many
Mictions of the greatest commercial
utility, Is linked up to form u feature
road of unsurpassed length and beau
ty; tho organization required to plan
this road and unsure its successful
completion Is now *f common knowledge; nn the mainland this year will
nee further work on that portion connection Vancouver nnd New Westminster to Hope, whilst a special sum of
175,000 will be spent upon the section
surveyed last vear between Hope nnd

Ymir Ridings substantial sums have
been provided fnr local sections al
ready located, the new steel bridge nt

will be completed, and ns fnr as the
systematic and careful survey, first
required will permit, the old Dewdney
trail improved through to the boundary*; thus mnklng certain that British Columbia, the most westerly
Province, and the one where the expense of construction is immeasurably the greatest, will he the first to
have Its portion of the Dominion

Another road which will inevitably
excite the greatest attention is the

deep, warm well drained soils such

of manure to most soils profitably
increases tho yield. This plant is a
rank feeder, and removes considerable
potash and phosphoric acid from the
land, making it imperative that a

vailable form. The effects of nitrogo-
oua fertilizers are very beneficial.
The Innd should be heavily manured and ploughed in the fall previous

in some places where a fair summer
rainfall occurs should he shallow and
performen early. In general, thorough and repeated cultivation and
harrowing at this season will be
sufficient to being the land into suitable physical condition,conserve the

If the land is dry, the addition is
beneficial. Transplanting of larger
luautitiea of plants may bo done by
ploughing then placing the youug
plants 3 feet apart 111 furrows tho
same distance away from each other.
Ri lling, after transplanting In this
manner, is recommended to make tbu
soil arm and compact.
\fter transplanting, cultivate fro*
HUently, while the size of the plants
permits.
FEEDING
Feeding may commence in OctODftY,
though kale will continue to grow till
the winter comes on. If the growth
baa been forced, it may be fed earlier
than October, and the practice Is a-
dopted by some of stripping tho lower leaves in the early part of the
feeding season. This prevents loss
by feeding the whole plant before it
has nttained its full growth. It
stands In the field until required,
when the stalk is cut off at the
••round. Enough may be hauled iu
at a time to last four or live days,
but it should not he thrown into
heaps and allowed to bent. Do not
feed wet or frozen knlo.
Thirty or 3ii lb. of kale may be fed
n cow milking. This, in combination
with hay of good quality, clover, alfalfa, or vetch and oats will assist
materially in keeping down the
amount of grain necessary to tbe
ration.
The famous Jersey cow "Adelaide

In examining lho dotalli of pay-
incuts for mail transportation over
stage routes, one is often surprised lit
Ilie siiinllncss of the remuneration, us
a few instances taken at random from
the statement will show.
for instance, the distance between
Hay fortune and Souris East, Prince
Kdward island is len and a hull miles.
The mail-carrier hns to make tlireu
round trips 0 week, for which lie ia
paid $110 a year. That iiiail-carrier
travels 03 miles a week, or 3,970 miles
n year lor -VI1U- Ho must either like
rilling, or he must supplement lho Income received from tho Government
liy carrying freight nnd passengers,
l-'rnin llnirdsville lo Beiiconsville. New
Brunswick, the distance is nine and
n half miles; Uie mail is carried between tlio two places three times a
week, and lho mail-carrier ia paid
$112 a year. In the Victoria poslal
division, British Oolumbla, the Gran-
tliim — Sandwich stage route is live
and a half miles long — eleven miles
in tlio round trip. 'Two trips ore
made each week and the yearly remuneration $60. And there ore scores,
even hundreds of similar cases. These
contracts for mail carrying are awarded to the lowest tenderers. The carriers ore being paid the prices fixed
by themselves, but how those prices
can remunerate the curriers they only
know.
The record of the dead letter branch
is always interesting, showing how
successfully tho officials overcome the
mistakes of many persons using the
mails, and also giving an insight into thousands of letters and parcels,
and enabling one to seo what odd
things the mails are culled upon to
carry.
Many of the pieces of dead mnil had
curious contents. Money, receipts,
bills, notes, deeds, contracts — these
and other liko things were to he expected, but not so baby's bibs of
which there were half a dozen, a bill
ol divorce, three butterflies, almost
three hundred pieces of cake, or four
corn-cobs. One hundred und seventy-
two certificates were found — certificates of birth, marriage, deutli, ol

one set of foxears, one mince pie,

j Little Things That Count.
I Business woman shuuld nut ask favors of their employers. Tho employer
, Boon begins to feel that there aro otber
! thinga wblcb are of a great deal moro
! Importance to the employee (bun her
work.
It Is the little things which make or
do nut make lho business woman n
success.   One of tbe first things to be
' learned by a young woman is lhat ot
being aUentlve nud showing she feels
! an Interest In the work she Is laklug
up nnd Is not Interested aloue In the
salary she will receive.
[    It certainly does not pay a business
; woman to tell of her great ability nml
'• merits.    Time will show tho sterling
finalities she possesses as nothing else
can.   Above all things, Ibere Is nothing
' more disgusting than to hear girls cou*
tlnuutly  talking uf the oppusilo sex.
Don't do It, girls.
I    Clothes are another thing  wblcb 1*>
not given enough of tho right kind of
! thought.    Tlio young woman, nccom*
( panted by a friend, will go Into a store
| and try on a garment.   Tho friend will
i begin something like (his:
"Oh, how pretty you look In that!"
or "That is certainly nifty on youi'1
and this will be repented a few times
' or something similar until n garment
: Is bought, nnd often the purchaser Is
not satisfied, but thinks If tho garment
makes ber look ho beautiful she shuuld
; nut do without It.    Always look  for
; something practical, durable and bit-
_ coming and decide Just whut you want
; before going Into a store nnd don't
, take anything else.   Always pick for
\ something which will look neatly at
well In six months after you buy it as
tt docs tin- 6*1 day.
I    'i'hen Ibe way clothes art taken enro
i of Is as Important m, If not mure Important tban, tbe buying. Always keep
. dresses, skirts snd coats on bangers
i wben not being wore sod have a case
{to slip over ibeia and always keep
| tbem brushed well.   It Is sn excellent
plan to bare ■ cleaning fluid on band
I In a bottle and look over each garment
j every nlgbt wben taking it off ond
j not Jet the spots accumulate,
i    After n season for u certain weight
! of clothing is  over take a   big  box,
, label It und put all of that weight Into
i thla box.    It Is well to have three or
four big boxes, one for summer clothing, full, whiter and spring clothing.

The development ot Strathcona
Park, an area nf 240 square miles,
containing every conceivable form of
natural beauty, even to magnificent
glacier bung peaks, is intended to
provide—not only from its own great
national pork reserves—the laBt word
in a public domain of this character
nnd the Island Trunk Road programme is being formulated to conform with the Park Development, and
provide not only nn unequalled Park,
but means ot access which will be
worthy ot it.
Por development work nnd within
the park proper $100,000 has been set
aside to be eipended during 1912.
On the lower mainland co-operntlve
road building is being undertaken
with municipalities; last year Richmond, Burnnby, 8. Vancouver and
Dewdney receiving substantial bonuses, whilst the Granville Street extension to Kbnrne is a sample of Joint
work with the Point drey Council.
This year, In addition to monetary
assistance upon trunk roads, a rock
crusher has heen erected,at a central
point with a capacity of 260 yards
per day, from which municipalities
will be supplied with road making
material nt cost price.
Then ton, of particular Interest will
be the work jointly undertaken with
Point Grey to give by completion of

On the Marine Drive the Provincial
Government are working Irom the

assistance in view, let a contract for

To attempt to properly spend such

The truth is out. Tbe weakness of
the large majority of the members
ol the Parliamentary Press Gallery
ia not for the Holy'Writ. Th .
mind one of Chaucer's Doc tour of
Phiayk, whose "studie was but litsl
on the Ilible." In the course of his
eloquent speech at the Liberal banquet to the victors of South Renfrew
the other evening, Dr. Michael Clark
paraphrased a quotation Irom tlic
soug of Deborah in the Book of
Judges. "All, sir. the stars in their
courses are fighting against t-isera."
Kvery Liberal newspaper man present who used tbe quotation iu his
report endeavored to make it a elastic, representing iho westerner ns
having chronicled a conflict between
tho firmament und Cieero. It ia re*
ported tn have been Sir Wilfrim Laurier, himself an adept at scriptural
quotation, wbo first spotted the blunder of the newspaper men. Thereupon
there were manifold trips to the Parliamentary Library to inspect the
dust*eovered copy of the Scriptures
which there abides. A poll of tiie
press men was taken on the question
with disastrous results lo all but the
Anglican's'. Not a Presbyterian nor
a Roman Catholic in the Gallery
knew whence tho quotation was taken,
and only ono Methodist qualified,
Seven of tlio Anglicans, however, at
once recognized and located it, these
correspondents, with the one Methodist, being tho only members of tho
Parliamentary Press Gallery who apparently had any acquaintance with
the Hook of Judges. Only one Anglican ".vent wrong, and iio confessed,
amid laughter, thut he was brought
up a Presbyterian.

In ihe treatment of summer complaints, the most effective remedy

Dysentery Cordial. It Is a standard

it in preference to other preparations.
It is a highly concentrated medicine
and its sedative and curative qualities
are beyond question. It has been a
popular medicine for many years and

kindred complaints.
Knew His Man.
Tlio members of tlic staff of The
Montreal Star have been selling tickets for a concert by means of which
that paper aided a charitable cause.
One of them sold a ticke, to one of
tn men who are partners in business.
Then the newspaperman made a bet
with anothor member of the staff that
ho couldn't sell a ticket to tlio other
partner, who was known to be close
in money matters.
Tiie man -who took the bet soon reported that he had sold Iwo tickets
to the close one and had collected
two dollars.
But the man who had taken the
other end of the bet was still doubtful. He hunted up tiie alleged buyer,
who told him lliat he had bought the
tickets and, after tearing them up, had
thrown them into tho waste-paper
basket. Tho doubter searched tiie
waste-paper basket and found what
looked like bits of the tickets. Somewhat sadly lie went back lo Tho Star
oilice anil asked the "boys" out for
tlm promised refreshments,
Soon afterwards the man who had
taken the two tickets met the seller
and U&ked why the doubter was so
anxious t'j find out about ttie tickets,
"He nearly had me," said the close
one. "Just after yuu sold me the two
tickets, a friend came in and I re-Isold
them to him. It was fortunate for
me that there were some bits of cardboard in that waste-pnpe: basket,"

meets in succession with Islands,Sea-
lands. River-lands, Hake-lands, Wheat

Magnlflcient  Exnibition  of  Aerial
Scouting—Fleet Celebrates
Anniversary.
The fleet dressed ship on Tuesday
tu celebrate the anniversary of King
George's accession, and at noon fired
a royal salute. A magnlflcient piece
of aerial scouting was done by Coin
mnnder Sampson. After the flrst and
second squadrons had put to sea to
join the third nnd flfth in order to
make a spectacular entry into th
bay, Commander Sampson launched a
hydroplane from the shore on the opposite side of Portland bay. It Bkld-
ed along the surface of the water for
200 yards, then arose and in tbe middle of the bay did graceful right
hand circles.
Then the commander went 12 miles
out to sea and picked up the great
fleet heading toward Weymouth, the
flrst time nn aeroplane, has ever done
this. Commander Sampson circled in
front of the ships and then, steering
by compass, dashed back to the hay,
arriving over the very spot at which
he hnd started his scouting expedition
and brought his machine down. It
settled on the water as gracefully as
seagull.
Thin novel feat wan performed after
Commander Sampson hnd broken
both wings of the Shortt biplane
near Lonmoor early in the morning.
Lieutenant Cray also met with a
slight accident, ln attempting to
land, biH aeroplane struck the ground
with considerable force. One of the
wings was damaged.
Leiutant Gregory also made successful aeroplane flights over the
fleets.
KINO    VISITS    FLEET
The sailor King, George V, paid
his third visit, to the fleet since coming to the throne on Tuesday, for the
purpose of witnessing the maneuvers
of the ships and the gunnery practice
All the more Interesting because of
Its novelty will be the flights by
naval ofllcers in tho new nerlal wing
of the service before the King. This
will be the outstanding feature of the
four dny's program.
The progress made by tho students
of the naval aviation school at East-
church has been so rapid that it will
come as a surprise to many to learn
that there are already two dozen
qiiallfled aerial pilots in the navy .Six
of them will be with the fleet at Port
Innd. They will bnve with them uot
only aeroplanes of different make, but
hydro-noroplanea for the purpose of
showing how air craft can be started
from battleships, There will be a
submarine attack upon the battleship
fleet by dny and a destroyer attack
by uight.

RIGHT KIND OF A9SI3RSOR
There is an assessor in a neighbor
ing   county   that   is certainly   doin
business with a proper spirit.     Whe
be  goes  out  to assess  and  three  or
four  dogs  meet him  at  the  gate  he
proceeds calmly to the proprietor of
the farm,   makes his assessment and
asks how  many dogs he hns.   If the
proprietor says he has none, and that
a few  dogs just  " hang  around   th
place" Mr.  Assessor just pulls out
revolver  and  speedily   dispatches th
canines in sight.     He says he may
not be elected assessor again but h
is  going  to  get  the  dog  tnx  of hiB
township   while   he   is   on   the   job
There should l>e more assessors of thi
kind in every county.

age Sunday morning and, strangly
perhaps, each in his sermon had
spoken of tho necessity for man to be
possessed of the lifeboat of religious
consolation ln time of spiritual shipwreck. Tbe story of the deaths of
the priests wus related yesterday by
three women survivors of the Titanic
Ullen Mocklare, Bertha Moran and
Miss McCoy.
When the liner struck, they said,
Father Byles came down in the steer-
nge passageway wltb hand uplifted,
commanding the people to be calm
and giving them absolution and bis
blessing,
"He led us to where the bouts were
being lowered," said Miss Mocklare,
"meanwhile saying prayers, and helped women and children into them,
lie whispered words of comfort and
encouragement to all. The passengers were deeply impressed by his
sell control. Twice he refused to enter the boat and save himself.
"After the boat had left the ship's
side," continued Miss Mocklare, "I
could hear distinctly the voices of the
priests and tho responses of the
people to their prayers. Then tbey
grew fainter and fainter and Anally
I could only hear the strains of
"Noarer, My (lod to Thee."
The person who stands on the
strcot corner looking around for
something to gossip about or to And
limit with, can always And what he
is looking for, hut what n life he
lives. Ills soul shrivels mul withers
until It Is shown in his manners and
looks. For such a person life has lost
its savor. It. becomes sour, misanthropic, whining. He pusses from
bad to worse nnd sees no good In
anybody. His tuxes are always too
high, no matter bow low they may
bo and lie ciiHses his neighbor became
IiIh neighbor Is prosperous nml enjovs
llle. In fact be bates himself, is a
j menace to a town's prosperity, a loe
to Ood, and no good to the devil.
These persons seem to he a necessity
! evil in every town. They ought to be
put out.
