Crarbrook 5 - Nelson 3
Thursday's game of ball was a het-
tsr quality on the part of Nelson
than on the previous Wednesday.
But Oranbrook got an early cinch in
the first Innings, and beld It, though
Nelson tied the score in the sixth.
This was due to Peterson being
struck ln tbe face by tbe ball, and
being put out of commission. This
occurred in the last halt of tho third
while at bat. Tbe Cranbrook hoys
were a little rattled at the loss of
Peterson and played ragged ball, but
tbey pulled themselves together at
this time and shut out Nelson in the
next three innings, at the same time
adding two scores for themselves,
thus again defeating the visitors
from the Lakeside city.
The score:,,
Nelson      000   12000 0—3
Oranbrook   80000101 x—6
Batteries: Phillips and Chapman,

two meters from the done, which waa
closed. Rouletabllle glided softly from
the corner of the parapet and stepped
between tbe door and the tij-ure of Bernier, who was struck with terror. He
put his hands upon the shoulders of
the concierge.
"Gome with tne!" lie commanded.
"It will be a ureal misfortune if you

And he drew him, clasping him by

completely his old self again.
Bernier walked In front of ua, bla

And  when  we reached  Uouletabille's

"Whut! You acknowledge that he was

M, Durzac never took the key with

While he was there."

Mere Bender heard a commotion ln
the apartmeaa of M. Darzac. The furniture was being thrown about and
blows ruined on the walls.
They heard the voice of Mme. Dor-
cue shouting "Help, help!" This was
the cry that we, too, hud beard tn

heard the words, "With this blow I

Durzac, who culled his wife lo bis aid

Bernier had called to his wife to bring

A Change Over.
It is many years since there existed a Federal Government whose majority in the House of Commons was
so small that its existence wag in
danger when the division belts rang;
and only once since Confederation
has a Government gone out of office
because of the hostility of want of
confidence of u House then in session.
And on that occasion the Government, anticipating the result of a division, took thc hint, and resigned
before a vote could be taken. That
was in the autumn of 1873, when the
debate on the Pacific Scandal was in
progress. Like Duvie Crockett's coon,
the Government "came down" before
it could be fired at. The resignation
of the Ministry was announced while
the House was sitting, and with a
rush and scramble the parties at once
exchanged sides, and so carried out
literally the oft-repeated expression
about crossing the floor of the House.

'That's Juat what I'm going to do,"
■aid Mr Prentice, turning a danger-
sua glance toward his tormentor. "I've

I don't want to stand In anybody's

They all aaw nnd passed the wink
to Fletcher. Thut gentleman pulled at
his long mustache, turned It fiercely
upward and smiled thoughtfully.
-Thank you. Luke," he snld at last la
a velvety tone. "I've been waiting
■ long time for a chauce. so aa you're
dropped out of the game I'll Jusl
mope along tbe Chlniapin trail tonight I got a box of enndy laid aside
for Just such an emergency."
Tbe Cblncapln trull led to tbe Chinkapin ranch, and there wus where Ea-
telle Blair lived with ber brothel
Frank. It was suld that Luke Prentice
mounted on Stebblns bud worn the
Cblncapln trull down to bedrock. It
iwas a fart that he had fallen desperately lu love with Eatelle Blair and
that for a time nt least she appeared
to reciprocate his feeling. Lately,
however, Estelle hnd grown cool and
distant, and now their friendship had
been severed by the curt little lettei
lho bad sent adjuring him that bus
would uot be at borne hereafter on.
.Wednesday nights.
Luke could not understand why mat
tars had turned out tbis way unless It
was that Estelle bad learned to love
somebody else. lie knew tbat Fletch
*r occasionally called at the Cblncapln
to see Frank Blair, and be must at
the same time have opportunities of
meeting Frank's lovely sister. But
both Fletcher and Blair were rival
aultors for tbe fair band of Hiss Gertie Ulbbs. tbe schoolteacher at Lone
Tree, und It was not supposed that
either cvci' wavered In bis allegiance to the plump little beauty. As a
matter of fnct. the two rivals were
close companions, and It waa whispered that In this wny eacb kept track
of the other's movements.
Nevertheless Luke felt a fierce stab
•f Jealous- aa Bert Fletcher emerged
from the bunk house Immaculate In a
white shirt and wearing In bla bosom
tbe large yellow topai pin be had won
from Mexican Tete. Bis mustaches
were twisted fiercely, and bis black
•yea sparkled maliciously as he look-
ed at Lube Prentice playing solitaire
by tbe light of a lantern.
-Any messages you want to send.
Inker' teased Fletcher aa he passed
Prentice lifted a dangerous eye ana
aorveyed bis companion's getup with
contempt. "You might tell Miss Gertie I can't get over tonight, but I'U
be around sure thing next Wednesday." he said, lazily gathering up tha
cards and snapping tbem Into a rubber band.
"Miss Oertler Fletcher reddened
■neaslly. "1 didn't say I was going
to Lone Tree, did IT Besides, I reck-
od-I didn't know you'd been prospecting around there."
"All gals Is alike to me," returned
Luke sententlmisly. "When one ain't
to home another wlll do Just as well
go long as they'll sing and play and
amoose me. As I was saying, Jnst
tell Miss Gertie I'll come around nut
Wednesday. Ho long, Bert. You're
aure going to hnve a moon."
• Fletcher strode a wny without a
Word, bis Joke nn Luke Prentice quits
forgotten In bis own misery. Frank
Blair might lake tbe opportunity of
his being there with Eatelle to ran
over to Lone Tree and thus steal a
march on bis rival. It was a matter
that required much thought and delicate handling
In the meantime Luke Prentice waa
arguing with himself against bis riding forth Into the moonlit nlgbt and
assailing Ihe Chlncnpln and demanding an explanation from Estell*.
There must he some reason for her
■ot earing to see him again, and If
the reason waa Fletcher-well, Luke
Would tee thnt Fletcher stopped flirt-
lag with Miss fifths and gave al-
balance to Eatelle Blair.
Buddeuly be aroae aud made a tasty
toilet Tben be came out, saddled
Stebblns uud rode uway dowu tha
moonlit trull. Wben be came to Iba
place where tbe trulls divided, ouo
leading straight to lbe town of Perdition, another to the right leading to
Loue Tree aud oue to tbe left—tbo
Cblncapln trail-be hesitated, uud tben
with a sburp sigh be turned luto tho
Lone Tree trull aud coulered briskly
toward the borne of Miss licit Ic tubus.
Here be spent a pleasant evening listening to Ulas Untie', vivacious (butter, enjoying the conventional music
ahe clattered from tbe tinny piano and
mean lol___ tn tbe cliutua uf tbat bob-
ular melody "Because I Love You So"
until uld man Ulbbs pounded uu tbe
parlor door and requested silence that
he might snatch a tew hours' rest before he arose to pursue bis dally vo
ration of englueerlug tbe stugcciwch
dowu to tbe nearest railroad stutlou.
Later In tbe evening Bert Kletchet
appeared, and close ut his heels cume
Frank Blnlr When tlie rivals found
Lnke Prentice Installed aa court fa
rotite they unburdened themselves of
large boxes of candy and touk a
gloomy departure, Blulr galloping back
to tbe Cblncapln to tell his sister uf
the faithless Prentice. Eatelle sneered
openly uud then flitted off to bed without even a Hood night
Buck In the Gibus house Luke Pren
tlce and Miss Gertie u|>eiied the boxes
of candy and enjoyed Ibe contents
hugely, and wheu Luke departed Miss
Gertie tied it handful of chocolates Into
a corner uf bla cleunest pocket handkerchief.
Seven Wedneaday evenings Luke
Prentice culled upon Miss Oibbs, and
then the following seven Wednesdays
be rode down tbe Chlncupln trull, but
In every instance, strange to relate, he
did not Ond Miss Estello at borne.
Tbe Swedish housekeeper eyed bim
blankly the seventh time.
"I wuden't t'ink Miss Blair be seeln'
yuuse. der says her ain't to home,
but ber Isl" she explained with a
world of pity In her light blue eyes.
Stebblns, muzzling tlio parched grass
In tbe dooryurd, brought up his head
with a Jerk as Prentice passed through
thc gate. Suddenly be baited and looked back at the ranch house where be
had known many pleasaut hours picketed under tbe trees where tbe herbage was green aud succulent and
where lumps of sugar were tendered
bim In Estelle's pink and white palm,
Luke dug bis spurs lu Stebblns1
flanks and flapped tbe relus about the
pony's ears. "Get along, you son of
Satan!" be muttered angrily. "Yon
trying to make more kinds of a fool out
of me thau I naturally am? Hump
Tbe pony started forward Just aa a
abutter oiiened cautiously In a second
atory window aud a low whistle sounded softly across the yard. A soft, seductive whistle It was, and In tbe old
days It always served us nn invitation
to partake of a lump of sugar from
Miss Blair's bund Luke did not hear
tbe whistle, but Stebblns did and Instantly turned and shot through tha
gate and galloped wildly toward tbe
bouse, while Luke sowed at the reins,
mad clean through ut the mortifying
spectacle be was muklug of himself
before the round eyed Swedish woman wbo gaped at bim urouud a corner
of tbe bouse.
"Sbe says she woden't be to borne."
sbe mumbled excitedly us Stebblns cur
voted and pranced aud balked uud utterly refused tu leave tbe hospitable
Blair doorstep.
Tben It wns tbat Luke Prentice
brought forth a Mexican quirt trom
beneath- his suddle blanket uud cut tho
balky Stebbfns uuce across the Banks.
As a result be found himself sitting on
tbe ground teu feet a wuy witb a badly
wrenched arm, while Stebblns whinnied sharply near tbe front door.
Luke dragged himself painfully toward a convenient cblncaplu and
leaned wearily against the truuk and
closed his eyes. Instantly be forgot all
bla troubles. Wbeu be opened bis eyes
to consciousness again Estelle waa
kneeling beside him binding bis arm ln
strong cool bandages while tbe Swedish woman beld un Ice cold cloth to
his aching head.
"1 cun get along all tight now, Bel-
ma." aald Estelle briskly, and when
the woman had departed ber voice
dropped almost to a whisper. "I'm ao
sorry, Luke! lt was all my fault, yon
see. I whistled lo Stebblns. I could
aee he didn't want to go. He knew
better thau bis master what bla master ought to do. Why didn't you come
and make me give you un explanation.

Luke Prentice said bis part with
auch good effect tbut be rode away
from the Cblncapln with a radiant
smile on his handsome face.
At tbe forks Prentice met two dejected riders turning uut uf tbe Lone
Tree trail. One waa Bert Fletcher, and
the other wua Ealelle'a brother, Frank

Thc two stared unhappily at each

"So did I." said Frank Blair bitterly.   "I suppose you did. tun. I.like?"

Getting Into a Scrape.
Many years ago the wild deer that
roamed through the lorests of Kngland
used to dig holes in the earth with
their loreleet. They pawed it out
sometimes lo the depth of several
inches, sometimes a loot or more.
These holes were called "scrapes,"
and travelers' at dusk or night or
those who were careless about their
looting often tumbled into them. They
wore luughed nt lor their heedlessness when tbey cume home covered
with mud, and as this frequently occurred after they had been imbibing
a bit they were said to have "got into
a scrape." Some Cambridge students
took up tliis expression, and thus it
name to be applied to people who had
got into difficulties ul vurious sorts.
"When ths Turkey Said 'Goodby.'."
The five turkeys we had taken on

be minus Christmas and New Year's

we've written some sussy editorials

lisbutid is ten years younger; tugeth-
r they form n pair that would aruusi
io Interest of any visitor.   Like many
f  the old  people  for  whom  Cauuda
i noted, they are Irish.
Mr. Grimsby was horn in Ireland 88
ears ago this summer; he crossed tlie
'eitn   al   twelve   with   uii   aunt   who
ied on the trip, and he arrived in
'.muds uhne, Undine a brother and
tiler  relatives  near   Kingston,  Out
.[ter   reuctiing   manhood   he   was   a
■uilor lor lifteen yuurs, both on the
real  Lakes and ocean-going vessels
rom   Quebec.     Meeting   Sarah   Jline
jullughcr he married her and settled
town  on   a  farm  near   Perth,  Ont..
liven her hy her brother, and there
iiey lived lor over thirty years. When
.ver seventy he left (or Manitoba and
lettled   a,  a  pioneer  near   Kstevan.
| mt after three years removed to an
'ther lurni near Neepawa, successful
iy operating it (or twelve yenrs. Lasl
.ugust he built a small house in Nee
,iawa town and retired—but now hu.-
bought   tae   house-moving   outfit   ol
tlie place,  aud intends to enter that
arduous line of work next season.
To talk to Mrs. Grimsby seems al
i.  jt weird.   She was born before thi
, battle ol Waterloo;  came   to   Canada
las a child—and here the reader wi!'
pardon a ruther personal touch in this
1 narrative, for she casually mentioned
that her tirst teacher in Canada was
Charles Norris Manly, und she wus de.
lighted to hear that this mun was tin
greut-grundfuther of   her interviewer
She further gave good evidence thai
iier age  wus authentic,  for  she  said
that John Grunge Manly, son of Chua
I .-anly,  was teacher in the school at
< "Oliver's    Ferry,"    as    she    culled
j Smith's Falls, and was a year or si,
I younger than she was.   By looking up
; family records it was found that Bev
I Juhn Grange Manly died in Toronto
: two years ago at the age of ninety-
j five.    Apparently   there   were   many
long-lived people amongst the settlers
j near Perth, for in  Bowlaud's cemetery, where the Bellamy  Road forks
| toward   Almonte,   is   buried   Churle.-
| Norris Manly, aged ninety-nine, und
| near  his  grave  may  ulso  he   noted
i "John    Rath,    ai^oj    ninety-seven,"
' "Mrs. Jamctf Smith, aged  one hun-
| dred years und three months," "John
I Marshall, aged one hundred and three
years,"   and   "Mrs.   Joliu   Marshall,
iged ninety-eight."
Mrs. Grimsby, though blind and
leaf, has all mental faculties us bright
is ever, and seems likely to live far
beyond the century mark. As a
iroof of her physical condition—she
'ell two yeurs ago and broke her

Menace of the Salmon.
- .4 there is one danger thnt threatens Uie salmon fishing industry of
British Columbia, the same danger
that threatens always when game or
ish are too easily taken, and thut is,
that with so many clever devices for
japturing the salmon before thoy
'ti'er tlie rivers, not enough muy
r.ach the spawning grounds to keep
up the supply. Restrictive legislation
nts been attempted, but has not prov-
ii very successful. To lessen the
langer the Canadian authorities have
-stuhlished several fish hatcheries.
The first was built at Bon Accord on
ihe Fraser River in 1884, aud since
•h:n nine others have been establish-
•d, and the Dominion Fisheries Commission has recommended tlie establishment of several more.
It would seem that it would not
be necessary for a large number of
ish to reucli the spawning grounds,
for it is estimated thut each female
salmon C iposits uot less than 36,000
•ggs, so that, if all were hatched, and
■aiiie to maturity, no river wouM be
large enough to hold them. But it is
ikidy that not more than lour per
•cut. are even hatched, and ol these
t large numher come lo grief before
heir (our yours of life are over, and
iiey return to perform their lune
.on in tlie perpetuation ol tlle race.

To Keep Hair Light and Fluffy.
The proper cure uf tbe balr does not
require a womuu to scour ber scalp
witb soap aud drench her balr with
water until a shnmpoo, including drying the hair, takes tbe better part of
the day. In fact, the less soap and
water used on the hair tbe better, as
alkali and moisture tend to make tho
hair coarse, dull aud brittle.
If you want to keep tbe scalp clean
and the hair light and fluffy try dry
shampooing. Tut In a quart Jar or
any other handy container four ounce*
of powdered orris root and four ounces
of therox. Stir aud shake until thoroughly mixed. A beautiful cleansing
powder with a delicate perfume win

Mahes Carried It
There is a good story told of Chair
man Mnbee of the Railway Com mid*
lion. It has to do with a certain
bylaw which was to be submitted in
Stratford, the purport of which is a
mutter of no moment. Mr. Id ington
was city solicitor. He was violently
apposed to the proposition. He wa-
to address a public meeting, and the
friends of the bylaw were almost
panic-stricken, for they had no material heavy enough to oppose him
At this critical moment, however, a
member of the Board of Trade hat
an inspiration. He imparted his idea I
to a few of his colleagues, nnd they
at once sought out Mr. Mnbee, He I
took little interest in civic affuirs,
had no knowledge of the question at
issue, but he loved a "scrap," nnd
he quickly fell iu with the plan. The
meeting was held, and after Mr
Idington had fired nil his big /guns,
Mr. Mnbee appeared on the platform.
To all hut those concerned in lhe
plot, his arrival was a surprise. Then,
tor the space of an hour or so, to the
infinite delight of his hearers, he
proceeded to twist Mr. Idington inside out. It cannot he said that he
had his "cbsc" well prepared. He
did not know the intricacies- of the
situation, but he did know how to
make fun of his opponent. After
that night there was nothing to it

A Terror to African Qame and tha
Despair of Sportsmen.
Hunting where   and   in   whatever
country  he  likes,   without  leave  or ,
license, the Cape hunting dog ib noi j
only a terror to many kinds of Afri-
cau game, but the despair of sports-
men generally.    Once afoot with hu
game, nays  Itaily'a Magazine, a kill ,
becomes almost an absolute certainty. '
He needs no help.
He stands twenty-five to twenty-
seven inches high, with good galloping quarters, ruther long but very
muscular legs, with strong feet and
toes. The ears are very large and
ereoi, beautifully formed to catch the I
faintest nound when working in thick
coverts. Added to this he has a very
keen sense of smell.

with beautiful white teeth.   They can
break bones which few animals ex- I

Their mode of hunting is very clev-
er. Having found and started a buck, {
some ol the fleetest dogs gallop for*
ward ahead of the main pack, keep-
ing on cither side to prevent the buck
turning and doubling back. As these
dogs tire they fall back, and others
take up the running in their place.
When the quarry tires the pack closes
In. and all their energy is devoted to
killing by tearing out the viscera.
Some writers say the pack takes, tho .
form of a crescent when running their
prey, gradually closing in as the game
tires. Al) agree that the short timo
taken in running down a buck Is simply marvelous, a quarter uf au hour
being the estimated time in hunting,

large a trade per capita as lu that
portion of thc provinco known as
South Boat Kootenay, nnd Cranbrook
is tbe principal eity in this vast area
which Includes a territory Ol over
7,000 square miles.
The Canadian Paciflc is the principal railway in this portion of the
province,   with   two   branches,  one  to
the south, the otber to the north, to

The valley of the Kootonay Is
drained by the Kootenay river and
its tributaries, which flow frum the
main range Of the rock mountains on
tbe east, aad the Selkirk range on
the west. Between these ranges of
mountains Hows the Kootenay for a
distance of over 160 miles, and is
navigable for its entire length, la the
early days of the district 1895-6-7 and
eight, four steamers plied on this
river and made une of the tinest river
trips in western Canada.
This portion of Bast Kuotenay is
rapidly being opened up, and with the
advent ol the Kootenay Central railway, which is now under construction will become one of the foremost
districts In British Columbia for agriculture and fruit growing. It has
large areas of bench land instead of
deep valleys as is usually found at
the foot of mountain ranges. This
land is singularly free from rock and
is composed of rich and fertile soil,
with, In many cases a large growth
of fine timber. Water for irrigation
is plentiful, and wben needed, can be
brought on the land from the many
streams and rivers tbat flow from the
The valley of the Kootenay is remarkably free from extremes of beat
and cold. Summer beat is moderate,
and winter mild. The snowfall is
light, and cattle and horses range
the year round.
Good qualities of apples, cherries,
and smaller fruits can be, and are
being, produced in abundance, also
potatoes, tomatoes and garden stuff.
Silver-lead, coal mining and lumbering are large and growing Industries In this district. The largest
silver-lead producing mines on the
American continent are located in
this district. Tbe largest areas of
coal are also found ln Bast Kootenay, and the lumbering industry takes
no second rank in tbe resources of
this district.
East Kootenay justifies the title of
a mineral district, inasmuch that 60
der cent, of the lead produced in this
province came from tbe mines of East
Kootenay. Silver, copper and gold
are found, and are being mined on a
commercial basis. Iron is found in
abundance, also zinc, with mica, asbestos, gypsum and other metals,
which are undeveloped, but which will
be drawn upon, as soon as the Kootenay Central railway is completed.
Coal and coke are expanding industries, for railway extensions, increasing populations and manufacturing
Industries demand even an Increased
production of coal.
Practically all the mining which
has been done to date ls confined
within a comparatively few miles
from the railways, and but a small
area, though prospected, and in many
cases developed into mines, yet for
lack of transportation have ntft become shipping mines.
The Crow's Nest coal fields comprises an area of high and splendid
cooking quality of coal. This coal is
used not only by Canadian consumers but by American railways, Bince
it excels in quality the coal in the
western States to the soutb. The
coke produced at these mines ts used
at the smelters and refineries ||at
west Kootenay and ln the smelters
and other works of Montana and
lumbering Industry of East
Kootonny is of equal Importance with
mining. The vast forests of large
trees is being cut hy some twenty
saw mills, each cutting from 25.000 to
200,000 feet dally. It will be many
years before the supply Is exhausted.
The mills of East Kootenay have become the chief source of supply for
the Immense demand that bas opened throughout tbe prairie provinces.

There apneara to be a disposition

The chair known as Queen Mary's

It would appear from what Sir
George Reid says ubout the taste of
Australians in the matter of public
speeches thut they like pretty much
the sume kind of public speech as
Canadians do. Sir George advised
Lord Denman, who is going out to
Australia as Governor-General, to give
up the "cold, rigid, calculating style
of speaking thut obtains in the House
of Lords," and impart more life,
warmth, and enthusiasm into his addresses. Lord Denman regretfully replied that he feared he could not do it.
"Humor is the most important quality in a speaker who wishes to interest Australian audiences," said 8ir
George. "The people huve un intense
love  of  amusement,   and   will  listen
Sutiently to a speaker it they think
e will show some humor before he
"Pretty frequently the interruptions
by members of the audience are extremely clever, und u speaker has to
decide quickly whether he can find a
better retort or pretend nut to hear.

which caused me much momentary
perturbation. I wus getting out of
the humorous into a very sad vein of
thought (it wus towards the close of
my public career in Australia), und I

Suving tht Children.
That it is better to save a child from
crime than to send him to a reformatory afterwards is the key to the spirit
that animated the people of Regina,
Susk., in establishing a shelter- which
was opened the other duy—so as to
deal effectively with the cases of child
neglect that come before the courts.
The movement for the betterment of
the children wus started two years
ago, and the work began in a small
way, a house being rented for it. The
movement appealed to the citizens,
and a bylaw was passed voting ten
thousand dollars, which enabled the
directorate to erect the present building and give it up-to-date equipment.
On the ground floor, says The Regina Standard, in describing the building, is the board room, where in future the Juvenile Court will be held
On this floor also ure thc dining-room
and matron's suite, while upstairs are
dormitories, bathrooms and other offices, including rooms that can be used
as isolation wards. A great feature is
the entire absence of anything suggestive of "an institution" about the
furnishings uf the home. The enameled bedsteads are such as might be
found iu auy well-to-do home, and the
spotless linen and beautiful furniture
will always be a pleasant memory iu
the minds of the children; During the
short time the home has been in existence over one hundred children have
passed thruugh it, the policy of the
directors being to find homes for the
children at ttie earliest opportunity,
so thut no child is detained any long-
e' than absolutely necessary. Even
children comm.tted by the police magistrate are allowed horn- on parole,
the parents, of course, being kept under observation. Three boys are ut
present on parole, who but lor tlie influence of the home would in all likelihood have been serving terms of imprisonment.
Canadian Pistol Record.
Corpl. A. Rutherford, a member of
the Toronto Revolver Club, which is
affiliated with the U. S. Revolver Association, in a medal match of the
latter body at the Armories the other
day made a score of 96 out of a possible 100. His score was made up of
eight tens and two nines. His performance gives him the Canadian record by a big margin. The former re-
cord was 95, and was held jointly by
RutherforJ and H. D. Young of Montreal.
Rutherford's score was made with a
Colts' service revolver of 45 calibre ut
twenty yards, with hand-loaded ammu-
i.ition. Rutherford used the-U. S. Revolver Association targets. Ou several
occasions recently Ruttierford has
threatened the Canadian record, only
to full down ou his last shot.
Rutherford is a corporal in the
Q.O.R., and his friends ure naturally
jubilant over his really wonderful performance.
Jealously guarded in every detail of
Its impressive ritual. From beginning to end it is intensely symbolic;
the series of acts presenting the King
fn hi* triple capacity of priest, soldier
and civil magistrate. Each article ot
the regalia symbolizes one or other of
these functions, all being summed up
in the crown itself—"the round and
top of sovereignty." The richly-jeweled "sceptre with the dove recalls the
peaceful days of Edward after the expulsion of the Danes, and the gloves
are a reminder of his abolition of the
Danegelt—a token that the King's
hands should be moderute in the
taking of taxes.
The coronation ring of pure gold,
with a magnificent ruby carved with
a St. George's cross, and surrounded
by diamonds, typifies thc marriage of
the sovereign to his people, nnd hai
been poetically culled "England's,
wedding ring." The anointing with
oil is traced back to the set tins apart
of thc first King of Israel. The ampulla, the vessel of pure gold in
which the consecrated oil is contained, is in the i-hape of an eagle witli
outstretched wings, the oil being
poured out of its beak. The spoon
into which it is poured is of silver,
richly gilt, and adorned on the handle with four large pearls. These two
articles, it is interesting to note, are
supposed to be the sole relics of the
original regalia of England demolished by the ruthle-s Cromwell at the
time of the Civil War.
The existing emblems were made
on the old models for the coronation
of Charles II. The curtana, or sword
-of Mercy, is the principal one In dignity of the three which are carried
unsheathed before tbe King. It has
no point, its blunted blade being a
token of mercy. The sword of Justice
to the Spirituality, is pointed, but
somewhat obtuse; and the sword of
Justice to the Temporality is sharp
pointed. The tcabbards of all three
are covered with a rich brocaded
tissue ot cloth and studded with gilt
ornaments. The sword of State is a
two-handed weapon, with a scabbard
of crimson velvet, decorated with
gold plates of the royal badges.

The Crossbow.
As a weapon of war the crossbow
lasted on in Europe all through tha
middle ages. Even so late as tne Napoleonic invasion of Russia it wa# in
use by the Cossacks. The crossbow
was a most formidable instrument of
destruction, comparing most favor-
baly with the old fashioned musket.
It was with the bow that the English
won their celebrated victory over tha
French in the Hundred Years' war.
Its timber shafts often pierced tha
armor of the "mailed chivalry4' and
made the British yeoman moro than
a match for the French knight.

Coronation Carpet.
Scotland i.i having tne honor of making thi; carpets which will cover the
floor of Westminster Abbey fur tlie
coronation, and tho looms of a great
curpet factory at Glasgow ure busily
engag-frd upon thc important titak. Thf
Hoor cuvering has from curliest times
been a apecilic featuru in the preparations for the stately ceremony, and
in tho Liber Realis prepared for Richard II. a copy of which is in the safekeeping of the Deans of Westminster,
there is a definite order as to tiie "Ray
cloth or Burrel" to be placed under
the King's feet as he goeth." At all
the later coronations the carpet has
been of a rich and beautiful character, with aa lustrous a surface as possible, and from tiie Quantities needed
in tiie more recent times it is une of
the first requirements to be set in
hand. The new carpet will follow very
closely upon the lines of tlmt ordered
for King Edward's crowning. Then
as now the color was a -ingularly
soft, rich blue. The design was symbolical uid embcdled the badge and,
motto of the Order of the Garter and
the Tudor ruse, with the thistle, shamrock, and lotus connected with festoons of bay leaves and ribbons.
These were effectively shown in a
rather lighter shade oi color and the
whole formed an admirable background to the niagnilicence of the
state robes, the eccleaiasticai vestments, the crimson of tlie peeresses'
dresses, und the military and diplomatic uniform-;.
The Shadchan.
East of Aldgute. in London's Ghetto, where the descendants of Pharaoh's brickmakers dwell, is where the
Shadchan — the Jewish matrinioniul
agent — is to be found.
The name denotes u "bringing together," and it is the Shadchan whu
initiates the whole affair. He says to
a young man, "You ought to marry.
Now, 1 know the wry girl. Her beauty—ah t—nnd her dowry—h'm!" The
Shadchan'* fee, you see, is generally
calculated upon in*, dowry.
This strange, decaying occupation is
an ancient une, Hebrew literature of
the thirteenth and fourteenth century
refers to the Shadchan and his legal
claim to remuneration, which was always higher when the couple lived
more thun ten miles apart. Perhaps
the extra fee was for shoe-leather.
Amongst old-fas fe'ied Jews, the
world uver, murr.agc-Tare st.ll brought
about by the Shadchan, who has figured as a witness in a.breach of promise case before now, when the
charms or tlu; dowry, or both, have
proved illusory, or exaggerated.
Markets   for   Farm   Produce   on   the
Down Grade
There has beon a decided recession
in the various  markets for consumable    commodities    in    tlio     United
I States since  a  year  ago,  when  the
great body of consumers in different
j parts of thc republic protested against
j the high cost of living in the form
of anti-men t-onting   leagues   and by
many petitions to the government at
Washington.    Thc  Pioneer  Press,  of
St. Paul, Minnesota, recently published  the following table which  shows
prices   of   various   commodities   in
April, 1910, nnd April, 1011:

The above statement combined with
the recent prediction of Mr. Patrick
Cudahy, foremost of United States
packers, that 4-cent hogs would be
the next sensation at Chicago, seems
to point quite plainly to an era of
low prices across the line for everything that the farmer produces. Reciprocity with the United States according to these facts would only let
the Canadian farmer into a country
where trade is demoralized and markets are falling.

James  Wilson,  Secretary  of  Agriculture at Washington, Writes
on Reciprocity
Mr. James Wilson, secretary of
agriculture for the United States, in1
a recent article on reciprocity says:,
"Half a century ago tno American
farmer bad no home markets in
which to sell bis surplus crops. He
arranged for a home market by protecting all diversified industries.
This brought the home mnrket, tbc
best in the world. Population has]
outgrown production from the farm
in some cases, and threatens to out-1
grow it in others.
The   American     farmer     brought
about the  building of the  American '
factory  because be wanted  a    home,
market.    That  home  market  is  thej
best to be found  anywhere,  because,
our people all live well und are all
able to buy the best funn produce—
that is, all who are willing to work.
It may be Baid, without much exag-f
geration,   that  the  American   farmer j
is  responsible for the upbuilding ofj
the factory.    He  haa voted  steadily I
for half a century to give protection
to the extent of the difference in cost
of production between   this    country!
and any country that desires to sell
in  our markets.    Was that  right  or
wrong?   Was it wise for the fanners
to do that?   There was no market at
home.    They  wanted    a    market  as
near the factory as they could bring
it.   Now millions of people who work
in these factories and in occupations1
other  than  farming    want    food    at
reasonable prices.   Wbo can condemn,
them for that desire?
Tbe. advantages that will enme
from reciprocity to the people of tbe
United States will be, first, access to
the Canadian woods. Then there will I
be access to Canadian markets for
our fruits, free lish, free trade iu
seeds, free trade in (lax, free barbed1
wire fencing, free trade in horses
Tbc hist will give ns a market for'
our draft horses in those new provinces that are being opened up. * # *
The people who live along the hor*!

to the growing people to the north
of us, who can not raise tbem nsl

vegetables than those north of the

"I am finally convinced that it
would he to the advantage of both
countries for us tu take the export
wheat of Canada, mill it, and semi
the flour to the markets of tbe world
because the dairymen of the United
Staten would t-ii-ri get the by-pro-
ducts of the mills and as the population of the United States increases
tbe dairy market wil be greater and
greater. We will get these by-products then, instead of having the
wheat go as wheat to foreign countries wlrere the by-products would be
sold and used to great advantage by
dairymen in those countries."
Mr. Andrews praises Dr.
1    Morss's Indian Root Pills.
Mr. George Andrews of Halifax, N.S.,
. writes:
' "For many years I have been troubled
with chronic Constipation. This ailment never cotnes single-handed, and I
bave been a victim to the many ■lltiesses
that constipation brings in ils train.
Medicine after medicine I bave taken in
order to find relief, but one and all left
me in the same Impeless condition, It
leemed that nothing would expel from
me the one ailment that caused so much
trouble, yet at last I read about these
Indian Knot Pills.
That was indeed a lucky day for me,
for I wns so impressed with the state*
incuts made that I determined to
give them a fair trial.
They have regulated my stomach snd
bewels. I am cured of constipation, and
I claim they have no equal as a medicine."
For over half a century Dr. Morse's
Indian Root Pills have been curing constipation and clogged, inactive kidneys,
with all tlie ailments which result from
them. They cleanse tbe whole system
and purify the blood. Sold everywhere

Why  These   Lots  Are  Offered  To  The  Public
The Grand Pacific Land Company, Limited, is chartered and authorized by the Dominion govornment
to buy and sell western Canada lands. The question might be urged that if we honestly believed that
these Nokomis lots were going to advance in value, why do we not hold thorn. Not even a Rockefeller
or a Rothschild could buy and hold all the good things ln the business world. If the townsite ol Nokomis were owned by a group ol men, and no lots could be purchased by the business man and investor,
Nokomis as a town would ceas; to exist. It ls the business men who will go to Nokomis and engage ln
various lines of bustness, ths farmers who will store their grain and purohaso their supplies at Nokomis
and the railways already thore   which afford unexcelled transportation facilities, that will cause Nokom
is to develop into an important city, It is those who buy woll located lots when a town is in tho infancy ot its development that make the large profits—not those who huy at the top of the market. It
is a woll known fact that more than one-hall ol mankind nre like sheep-thoy wait until others hnvo
started and then follow. We are offering well located Nokomis lots at such low prices that Nokomis
will not havo to grow very much belore these lota will he worth double what we aro now asking for them.
Wo believe ln Nokomis and tbat those who InveBt in this new railway city at present prices will have
made an lnvestmsnt, the result ot which will fully demonstrate the soundness of our advice.
Easy Monthly Payments without Interest
The lots wo offer range ln price from $5 to 13.50 and they can be
nought by paying one-tenth ol the purchase price with application and
the remainder ln nine equal monthly payments without interest. A
Filty Dollar lot wlll mean a payment of $5 with application and nine
monthly payments ol 35 each. Can you afford to miss this opportunity
when the terms are so easy? Remember this is not a subdivision property. Every lot shown on the above plan is located in the original
townstto of Nokomis. Perfect title will be Issued to purchasers of these
lots. Come ln at onco or phone, write or wire us, at our expense, asking us to reserve tho lots you want. Tbsy aro going very rapidly,
and the close-in lots are going flrst. Don't delay, send in your order
or All in attached coupon  TODAY. *	
Building Operations Active in Nokomis
It Is understood that arrangements have practically been 'completed by tho Council ot Nokomis to at once begin the erection ol n
large, modern town hall. Debentures running over a term o, years wlll
he issued tor this purpose, This building probably will be erected at
the N. W. corner of Third avenue and Main street, where the fire hall
is now located. The Kire Hall probably will be moved back on third
avenue. One ol the grain elevator companies Is to at once begin the
construction ol a large grain elevator. Several new residences nre
now under construction, and it is expected that many new business
buildings will he erected ln Nakomis within the next lew months.

Nokomis   Likely  To  Be  a  Divisional  Point  On   Two  Railways
It   is  claimed   that the  Canadian Paciflc has expended over $40,000 at Strassburg, thirty-two miles  " ' "" ' '""" w"'*h""n " "'• M"'' ■'
south of Nokomis, In endeavoring to secure an adequate supply ol water to enable it to make Strassburg a divisional point. It ls understood that sulllclent water has not yet been obtained at Strassburg,
and It is being rumored that tbe Canadian Paciflc Ib considering making Nokomis a divisional point on
its Pheasant Hills lins.
The extension ol tho Canadian Northern through Nokomis will assure the future of this rapidly growing new town aB one of the important distributing points of Western Canada, it is not only possible,
but very probable that Nokomis will also be a divisional point on the Canadian Northern. The Canadian Northern muat bave a divisional point at or near Nokomis, and as an abundant supply of pure
water at a divlaional point ls essential, it ia believed that Nokomis' advantages In this respect will not
he overlooked.

prehensive Address
Vancouver, June 14—In a comprehensive address at North Vancouver,
the minister of lands, Hon. W. R.
Rose, dealt with forest wealth and
the care and assistance citizens, par*
; tirularly ram pent, lumbermen and
railway nien should render the government in protecting it, from des-
; miction by lire."
| "By the end of the season," he
said, "careless citizens of this pro-
l vi uce .vill have shut several milium
dollars worth of our natural resources out or exietebc* into smoke. All
this will happen, and the reason will
ha QarelMsnSBfl — rank carelessness.
This Is our greut weakness as a peo-
ple, we art* careless ahout our great
resources of timber, and we toleraU
Bach other's carelessness. Public op*
iiiiou is all important in tbe proven-
tion of forest (ires. Orators may
plead, Koveruments may strive to do
their utmost, as the present govern*
meut is doing, to save the forests,
but in the long run success depends
ou a very commonplace matter, the
care the average citizen can be iu*
ducod to cxercine when using fire
nenr woods; care with matches, tobacco and cigarettes; care with camp
and clearing tires, care with donkey
I engines and locomotives. Kvery man
I woman and child in the province can
| do a little to help protect the forest.
"Lately," he said, "in British Co*-
umbia lumbermen and timber owners
buve organized themselves into a voluntary Ure protective association aa
the lumbermen of Washington and
Idaho have done so successfully. The
provincial government has had to
step in anil shoulder the entire responsibility for tire protection, lor
the time being, and it has had to do
this more or less in a hurry to prevent as far as possible further damage to one of the greatest assets of
the province. The government haa
had to employ a large force of men
and to cover the timbered districts
with a network of patrol and expend
a very large sum of money both laat
year and this, and it has had to do
so under great difficulties. I am
glad to say that to some extent the
difficulties caused hy the overlapping
of the provincial and dominion Jurisdiction haua heen overcome. In the
matter of inspection of railway locomotives, und clearing of right of way
I have heen able to come to an arrangement with the Dominion government. Moreover, railways have begun to realize the enormous destruction they have caused and are willing

Sydney Site at Naval Dockyard
Ottawa, June 14—The bulk, If not
all of the first hatch of ships for the
Onnadian navy, will be constructed at
Sydney. This may be taken as authentic. Such was the rather Interesting statement mado today by the
gentleman who interested Sir Henry
M. ivllatt in the matter and who la
in close touch with the situation.
The company of which Sir Henry la
chairman, will get the contract for
the bulk of the ships at least. This
bad practically been decided on by
tbe naval department aa the company's tender was the lottest of the
lot. British concerns affiliated with
Sir Henry in the enterprise, the Fair-
iicld Shipbuilding Co., and the Clydebank Shipbuilding Co., are now preparing to send engineers and equipment to Sydney and it was expected
that construction of a shipbuilding
yard would he commenced before fall.
A definite announcement regarding
contracts will likely be made on the

Vancouver, June 14—The lumber

into British Columbia each month,
according to Tacoma lumbermen. Of
this amount ..00..000 feet are shipfM

Washington men are able to compete
with British Columbia mills because
of the condition of over-production
In Washington, tbey declare.
Lumber shipped from Washington is

heaviest orders ever placed (n Washington by Canadians was received recently by Port Blakely Mills from

Tbe order was for 5,000,000 feet of

Halifax, Juno 14—Tho provincial
general elections took plnce today,
and resulted in victory lor the government, who carried 27 of the 35
seats in the province.
Halifax elected 3 Liberals with a
majority lor the highest ol 1,056 end
lor the lowest 705. The labor candidate in Halifax polled a total ol 3,741
votes, compared with 4,888 lor the
highest government candidate.
Gape Breton elects two conservatives.
A notable feature ot the election ls
the defeat of three members ut the
government, Hon. C, C. Chisholm,
commissioner ot works and mines;
Hon. B. F. Pearson, In Colchester,
and Hon. Dr. Leblanc, in Yarmouth.
Premier Murray had a large majority
In Victoria, and his colleagues have
a lead.
Thc issues were chiefly local, although reciprocity ttgnred to a very
considerable extent. The Liberols In
this province will now have Ave
years more to add to, their 29 years
ol rule. The opposition in the last
legislature numbered five. They will
now have eleven, and they have the
advantage ol having with them 0. E.
Tanner, formerly opposition leader,
who is elected ln Plctou. This is also the largest opposition since the
days of Cahan, the redoubtable opponent of Fielding in hia provincial
days, having only a lollowing of 9,
whereas Tanner will have ten. The
opposition is also singularly a' le,
Tanner, Olrror and Corning, the two
former aa legal lights in the province
making a strong Iront bench,
The results of the polling was as
Inverness—McDonald and McLellan
(Liberals) leading* with six places to
hear from.
Victoria—Premier Murray and Buchanan (Liberals) large majority,
with two places to hear trom.
Guysboro—Ellis (Liberal) 139 mn-
lority; Torry (Liberal) 197 majority.
Richmond—Joyce and Bissctt (Liberals) leading, with good majorities.
Cape   Breton—Butta   and   Douglas
The publication ot Hansard, with
its ten thousand pagos of embalmed
discussion, once more intcrcntinlly
raises the question ol tho closure
which is Invariably suggested when
any question ot great national interest comes up for discussion. Hut
It is a debatable question whether
the closure Is of any benefit in the
deliberations ot parliament. The
closure was invented hy tlie late W.
E. Gladstone during the homo rule
clatter of the eighties of thc last
century. It was invented to pass the
home rule measure, but that question
ia not settled yet, despite the precautions that were taken to railroad
lt through the English house.
At the present time in Canada, we
are threatened with the introduction
ot the Closure at Ottawa. It has not
heen suggested as yet that the closure should be Invoked to push through

the pending reciprocity agreement he-
ore nu election; hut no ono can tell
■.o what lengths party seal may go
Ijefore.the matter iB settled. Certainly no graver outrage on public tooling nor violation ot public liberty
lould be Imagined thnn that a
Tiainiity should gag a minority in
irder to torce through a measure
which that minority in Parliament-
believed to Imperil the very existence ol the nation ns a political entity.
Tbe only renl reason for anything
approaching n closure is a pressure of
business. When a parliament can't get
through with its basiness properly,
nud indulge In free debate In each
measure, a closure might be necessary.
And the politicians at Ottawa have
not yet reached anything like the
stress ot business that requires bolstering up any gagging process.—Calgary Herald.

The result of Wednesday's eRStlons
in Nova Scotia gives to the Conservatives the greatest number of seats
that it has had in fifteen years. The
standing of the parties in the last
house was: government 32, opposition 5, Independent 1. In tbe new
house the government will nave 17
seats, the opposition 11, practically
cutting the government's majority In
The principal reason given for this
change iB the fact that Premier Murray tried to force a resolution endorsing reciprocity, the result being tbat
the Conservatives gained six seats,
besides defeating three ministers.
The result is mont encouraging to
Conaervatlves. With reciprocity as
the leading issue in general elections
we may look for still larger gains
for Conservatives from Nova Scotia.
Arrangements for Mr. R. L. Borden's western tour are complete, and
it is worthy of mention that the
western press, conservative and liberal alike, have united in offering words
ot welcome to tbe conservative chieftain.
j There Is no doubt that a portion of
the warmth may he traced to the silly tactics adopted by some of the
officials ol tbe Grain Growers' Asro-
clatlon. Wben Mr. Borden announced
the dates of his western tour they
Kent the call round that the meetings were to be broken up, Ot course
the Conservatives, and tbe better
clasB Liberals resented this as an insult, tn a man whose views, whether
opposed by some or not, ought to
command respect and attention. If
the weat failed to give the opposition
leader a decent hearing, it would not
redound to the credit of the western
Mr. Borden has a programme and
a policy for the west, which will not
only benefit the wtmt, but at the some
time conHolldate the Dominion. The
opposition leader Is not of the sort
who talk one policy in Nova Scotia
and another In British Columbia, He
has n general policy for Canada.
Certainly the political situation in
Cannilii hnn seldom lii'i'ii so disturbed
as it Is at present, To begin with no
Canadian premier has ever hern so
criticised in Kni'lnnd as bas Sir Wilfrid Laurier on the occasion of his
present vlHit. The British press bas
discovered the suave Canadian Premier, and the name which one newspaper has given bim, "Mr. Faclng-
Hoth Wiiys," wlll stick to him as
long as he lives.
When it was discovered that the
Premier was ln trouble ln England,
owing to the fact tbat he did not
understand the effect of the reclpro-1
city agreement, and could not explain
ts terms, and when lt was learned
that be had cabled for Mr. Fielding
to come over and help him, there was
tbe usual chorus of official denial and
expostulations., It was given out that
Mr. Fielding had gone to europe for ,
a rest. !
It waa a mighty rush for a man going to take a rest. Most folk rest ln
some other fashion. And it la possible to rest in Canada.
That tbe government haa prepared
ita plans for a sudden appeal to the
people shows anything may be expected at any moment. The voter's
lists are now being printed at the
government printing bureau. Men are
working night and day, and the lists
will be ready ln two months.
• • • •
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has got tired of
London, or possibly very weary of
the newspaper attacks upon him and
the government. He leaves the Hon.
Mr. Fielding to fill the gap made
vacant by his return to Canada,
wbere the political situation ls disturbing to tbe Liberal machine.
Special cables trom London show
that the Canadian premier has lost
caste among the people of Great
The London Times and the London
Standard do not hesitate to say that
Sir Wilfrid, by his policy ln Canada,
and his tactics in London is tending
towards tbe disintegration of tbe
Tbe London Globe Intimates that
he ls Insincere and unpatriotic. It
tells him it would rather bave "candor" ln his speeches than "measured,
graceful periods," and suggests that
"true statesmanship" is more Important than soft soap.
The London Times in a letter calls
Sir Wilfrid "Mr. Facing Both Ways."
These are serious words to apply to
the Premier of Canada. The impression is gaining ground that as Sir
Wilfrid draws near to the close of his
political life he is exposing bis real
desires, and that these are not conducive to the best interests of the
British Empire aa a whole, or to tbe
best interests of Canada as a part of
that Empire,

least the mother country where she
needs help, at the central source.

continue in office to enjoy further
I The Standard ls NOT in favor of
letting a 185-mile contract for so
chimerical an undertaking aa the
Hudson Bay railway when lt is an established fact that the Hudson  Bay
