At that moment we climbed to the

by the ardent lava to serve a.** the tlrst
roof fur the lirst  rurally  In the tirst j
days of the world!   We could see bin*
brandishing his skull as he had done
at tbe table, and we could hear bim I
laugh, laugh, laugh.    U tore our ears ;
and our hearts.
Our attention was drawn to Darzac.
wbo was coming through Uie postern
of tbe gardener, lie did uot see us.
lie was not laughing! Rouletabllle felt
the deepest pity for hlin, for he saw
that he was at the end of his endurance. In the afternoon be nad said to
my friend, who now repeated the
words to me: "Eight days Is too much!
I do not believe that 1 can bear this
torment for eight days!"
We followed him with our eyes to
the door of the square tower. We
could see from his looks thut be could
endure no more. Well, M. Darzac a
little after this gave me cause to experience the most frightful thrill ot terror which could freeze oilman bones.
Darzac went straight to the square
tower, where, of course, he found Bernier, who opened the door for him.
As Bernier bad been keeping constant
guard before tbe door of the room, as
he hod kept tbe key lu bis pocket and
an we had proved by our investigation
tbat tbe place was empty when we
had left It we had established the fact
that when Darzac entered his room
there could be no one else there. And
this Is tbe truth.
At tbe moment that we saw Darzac go
to bis room we heard a clock strike 5.
Rouletabille and I remained chatting
upon the platform of the tower B toi
another hour. Suddenly my friend
struck tue a little tap on the shoul-
der and exclaimed, "For my part I
think"— And then, without complet-
lng the sentence, he started for tbe |
square tower.   1 followed him.
Hu thought of Mere Bender's bag of !
potatoes which he emptied out on the {
white Moor of the room to the great
amazement of the good woman; then,
mulshed with this act, which evidently
corresponded to the slate of his uiliid,
he returned with me, while behind us
we could hear Pere Bernier laughing
as he picked up the potatoes.
Aa we reached the court we saw the
face of Mme. Darzac appearing for a
moment at the window of tbe room occupied by her father on the first story
of la Louve.
The heat had become Insupportable.
We   were threatened   with  a violent
storm, and we believed that It would j
begin to lighten Immediately and relieve us.
A few drops of water had begun to
We turned lo the door of M. Darzac's
room.   Beruier was smoking his pipe [
ln the corridor, sitting astride a chair. |
"ls M.   Darzac still  there?" asked
"He hasn't stirred since he went In,"
Bernier replied.
We knocked. We heard the heavy
bolt drawu from the inside. (These
bolts can only be used by the person
within tbe room.)
Darzac was writing letters when we
entered.    He had been seated beside !
a little reading table facing the door.
Now mark well all our movements.
Rouletabllle complained that the letter which he held In Ids hand con- j
firmed the telegram wblcb be bad received lu the morning and pressed him
to returu to Paris. His paper insisted ,
upon bis proceeding at once to Russia.
Darzac read Indifferently the two ot
three letters wblcb we had brought
him and put them In his pocket. I
now held out to Rouletabllle a let tei
which I hnd received. It was from
my friend In Paris, who, after having
given mo some Important details re-
garding the departure of Brignolles.
Informed me that the latter had left
his address for mall to be forwurded
to Sospel. the Hotel des Alps. This
was extremely interesting, and Darsac
and Rouletabille were greatly excitsd
over It, We decided to go to Bospei
as soon ns It could be arranged, and
we went out ot iu_ room. -Hie door
of Mme. Darzac's sleeping room was
not closed.
I have mentioned that Mine Darzac
was uot in her own room.
Then the three of us went out of the ;
square tower, leaving Pere Bernier in
bis corridor like the good  watchdog ]
that he never ceased to be until tue i
last day of his life.
It   was  about   half   nnat  0  o'clock
When,  In  emerging  from  the square
tower, we went to pay a visit to Old
Bob In the round tower. Itouletabille,;
Darzac and I.   As B0OU as we entered

OXClnmatlOll  ol  surprise at   seeing  (he

upon a  wash drawing 11(1011  which he
had been working ami which represented the plan fot it great scaling

kind which had existed lu the fifteenth
century. Tills drawing had been gashed with a knife aud paint had beeu
smeared over It. He endeavored In
vain to obtain some explanation from
Old Bob.
As Old Rob seemed to he In a churl-
lsti humor, we left ..Im that Is, Rouletabllle and myself did M. Darzac remained gazing at his •polled drawing,

at her too.

I all at once breathed the perfume—
the odor so sweet and penetrating and
haunting that Its fragrance has remained with me ever since—tbe perfume of the Lady In Black. 1 understood uow bow Rouletabille had remembered it all these years.
Yes, It was a fragrance f«H of sadness—something like the perfume of
an Isolated flower which has beeu condemned to be seen by oo one, but to
blossom for Itself all alone. A strange
perfume! Surely it was that, for 1

How Sandow Became Strong.
Mr. l_ugen Sandow, who has been
appointed to the new post of Professor
of Scientific Culture to the King, an
indication of the importance His Majesty attaches to the subject of physical development, made the interesting confession a short time ago that
as a child he was "pale, frail, delicate—even weakly. I inherited no
abundance of health," he continued,
"or extraordinary physique, for my
parents •■ere not exception in this
respect. That 1 have acquired health
and strength is due entirely to the
fact that 1 have exercised regularly
and aytfematically—not spasmodically and erratically—from the moment I
first determined to emulate those heroes of old, when I set my eyes upon
their sculptured forms in Italy's galleries of urt."

Planning   tht    Bad —Some    Famoua
Typat—To Secure Early Flowers.
Ou accouut of their free flowering
habit and ease of culture tbe canuua
are general favorites for summer bedding purposes. There are two types,
tlie green leaved end tbe red leaved.
Tbe green leaved varieties are cultivated for their flowers, while tbe red
leaved type la grown primarily for
the broad, richly colored leaves. Tbe
canna Is useful aa a bedding plant
ratber than aa a cut flower, aa tbe
flowers are fragile and soon perish
wheu cut.
Oue type known aa tbe orchid flowering produces unusually large blossoms. Tbe Austria and Italia ara
good examples.
Iu color the canna ranges from car
dlnal to yellow, Including every stage
of lutergradation. Iu some varieties,
at the Florence Vaugbuu, the body
color of the petals la a deep red, scattered through which are bright orange
Tbe cauna was developed and Improved by a Frenchman of the name
of Crony. One of the most widely
known varieties la the Mme. Croty, Introduced hy him and named lu honor j
of his wife. Tbe canna ranges from
two to six feet In height ln arranging a bed core should be taken to have
tbe taller kinds In the center, tapering
down toward the border. Sam '.'release Is one of the dwarfcat forms and
an excellent variety for tbe outside
row. For a large bed a single plnut
of tbe red leaved castor bean may be
used for tbe cetiter. Next to this
place Ihc taller variety of cuunas, next
by a row of the red leaved canna,
such as Black Beauty. Follow the.
last row of cuunas with the scarlet
sage. Salvia spleudena, aud for the
border next to grass there Is nothing
superior lo the candytuft or the variegated leaved geranium, Mme. Sel-
lerlo. The size of the bed should be
proportionate to the area of tbe lawn.
Tbe canna requires a rich, moist,
well drained soil. This may he secured by the application of well rotted manure or nitrate of soda.
Tbe propagation of the canna Is very
simple. Wben the frosts come on tha
tops are cut back and tbe clumps lifted with ns much soil as wlll conveniently adhere. These clumps ara
closely packed on shelves or In boxeal
and stored In tbe cellar at about the
temperature required for the potato.
The next spring the clumps nre subdivided luto pieces three-fourths of nn
inch long and having oue or two
strong eyes to each piece. To secure
early flowers the eyes should be started In a hotbed or window box; other
wise they may be planted directly ln
the bed. Aside from cultivating and
watering, the one point of Importance
is to keep the seed pods cut away. Aa
witb all flowering plants, tbe one purpose of the flower Is that of reproduction. If the seed pods are cut away
aB soon as the flowers wither they continue this effort Indefinitely; otherwise
flowering ceases with tbe maturing of.
the first crop of seed. The new flower

Canning by Machinery.
Since so much has been written
about the uncleanlinesi oi canned
ments, cannol salmon has come In
for it.; share of doubt, but a visit to a
canning factory in British Columbia
usually dispels all qualms. There
wo* ti time wben much of the work
in the factories was done by band,
but that time is past, except in ths
Aiualler factories. In the old days the
llsh were counted ami put un tables,
behind which Chinamen pined with
large knivos, ami cut off the heads
and tails and removed the entrails.
Now bes-ide the table n large machine
called the "Iron Clunk docs the
work of many Chinaman, Then iu
days gone by Indian., washed tho flih
and sent tbem on to be cut into pieces
of a convenient sise to go into cans.
This work was done by hand, but
now machinery does it all, After the
nnlmoti is packed in the cans, tha
cans nre all soldered and are then
put into test tanks. Here if any Haws
in wilder ing are detected, the cans
are set aside. If not, they are placed in a re-iort and subjected to a very
high degree of heat which thoroughly
cooks the flsh. The cans are again
tested and then conveyed tn the labe'..
ling and packing rooms. Care is taken to insure cleanliness, and to proven! coutamiuation ot all k-u U. IN'. PROSPECTOR, CRANBROOK. BRITISH COLUMBIA

Another evidence of election is that

am' [g elated at the prospect.
S'r f'hnrb-s, who was born In Xova
Scotin ami educated in Scotland has
been a great ntrure ln the public life
of Canada nnd hnd no small share in
bringing about the marvelous progress which lias been made in this
country during the Inst half century.
Before he helped to bring about the
Canadian federation he had for a
Jong period been premier of his own
province of Nova flcotia. Subse-
uuently he was high commissioner of
Canada In London for l'i yi-ars anil
then became premier, a position he
held for only a tdiort period. The
veteran statesman had a baronetcy
conferred upon him in IH8H. His son
is also Hir Chnrles, a K, C. M. 0. of
1R0.1. He Ih a barrister and llrst entered the dominion parliament. In
At Cranbrook the ponfllhllltlos of
an election this fall nre being discussed and tho question asked when
it will be pulled off.
The political situation nm! the probability of an election Is about this: |
Parliament is to meet on July 27th. I
! Before that date the government will
be iu possesaiuu uf the rigureti sbow-
] ing the pupulation ot Canada by
I provinces and by constituencies. As
soon as the House meets, the sjovern-
, ment will be bound, m view ol the
| opposition to "further supply and to
ithe reciprocity proposals, tu iu-
[ troduce a bill readpisting the repre-
I sentation as to provinces, and redis-
I trilniting the seats iu each province,
| as set out in the re-adjusted representation based on the census now
! beint, made. The western provinces
I will be given more seats, and the
: eastern provinces, outside of Quebec
(65)  will    he  reduced.    So    it   means
■ many changes all over.   The opposi-!
j tion in all likelihood will seek to get
as fair a deal as they can in the redistribution, and, once that is [
over, to refuse other than supplies |
for a stated period, aud refuse to
pass the reciprocity pact. They may
give the government supplies up to
.That will mean nu election between
September lat and November 30th,
(based on the new census) by which
time this existing parliament will be
only three years old. Of course, nn
arrangement could be made, if reciprocity happened to be defeated at
Washington to hold another session
of parliament, in 1912, Uut thiB is
uot likely.
Prom now on it will lie a good deal
of   an    election campaign.   But   the
shape f>f the constituencies and     the'
candidates   will    be a matter of un- j
certainty     until   the   re-distribution
bill    is    paused,    lu    fact,  the actual
candidates    are   much farther   away
than  the turmoil of the election.   It'
mentis a  summer campaign    without 1
knowing  the actual  constituencies or'
champions.   Rut the main issues will
be   up    in all     their   strength.   And
there never was such a campaign   in
Canada before.    It will therefore, be
little  use  in  calling conventions   or
selecting candidates  until the re-distribution bill  is passed, except in   a
few constituencies like the Rootenay.
■ And this will require a few weeks after the prorogation in August or
In Kooteuay, the situation ia not
'so difficult to anticipate. In all pio-
bnbility there will he two constituencies, east and west Kootenay. And
I even at the present writing it is easy
to name candidates, and knowing
' these facts we can go ahead with an
[ election, the opposition being just as
J fully informed as the government
supporters. It is a two to one bet
that opposition and Liheral men be
Cranhrook men.
Oeneral    Election in  August or
An Ottawa (special' says—A general election in August, or September,
without a redistribution. It is stated positively that thiH is the Lntiner
program a program which will be
carried mt" eflsct almost Immediately after Launer's return from (treat
Hritain. So strong is the prevailing
belief that tht* latter part of the summer or the early fall will see the
governmene going to the country,
that Conservative party leaders are
thoroughly Convinced ami are making
plans accordingly.
Ii. L. Uorden will make his promised tour of .Manitoba, SaHkaKhewriri
and Alberta, hut it is probable that
his Hat of meetings will be short iii-tl
to allow him to return for a tour of
nil the provinces eiiHt of Manitoba.
Hritish Columbia alone wlll not be
visited by the Conservative lender,
who relies upon the promise of Premier McBride to deliver a "aolld R.
C." In the meantime Mr. Uorden Ih
preparing for his western trip and
for a possible participation In the
Novn Hcotin provinrial campaign.
The last word of Hir Wilfrid
Laurier to his supporters In CAUCUS
was to prepare for an election. Hn
did not give them the date, but ho
left the impression that the jump
would be made soon. That. Is why
Messrs. Lemiuex and Fisher are planning n long series of meetings in cjtie
bee, and that la also why tbe depart
ments ol public works and railways
are daily banding out announcements
oi contracts, ttie Hudson Ray construction work being a sample.
Tbi_i means, ol course, that there
can be no redistribution before the
election, but it is well known that
Sir Wilfrid Laurier rates more to get
his last election over than he does to
see the west endowed with thirty additional seats. He was urging tue
advi*mbiltt> ol an early election ten
weeks ago, and only yielded to the
Ontario wing of the party. It is possible that he will a_k for a dissolution during the present adjournment,
but it is also quite possible that he
will allow parliament to meet again
on the ISth for a two week's gallery;
play, after which he will tell the
west that the opposition euchred
them out of their increased representation.
The fact seems to be that Sir Wilfrid himself, desiring an early election, has allowed his hand to be forced by the opposition and by the recalcitrants in his own party who
have rebelled against a long midsummer struggle in parliament. The danger of the reciprocity pact failing in
the United States Is another incentive.
The house has voted supply till
September 1 only, despite Sir Wilfrid's repeated efforts to get enough
to tide him over till October. After
a dissolution it will he open to bim,
however, to raise what money he
needs by governor-general's warrants.
Tbe election will be short, and will
have reciprocity aa the one issue. So
determined has the government been!
to force a favorable resultton tbis
question that caaea are knotwn of Liberal party men approaching strong
Conservative members in their ridings with oflerB of "walk overs" in
return for support of the reciprocity
agreement. It 'is expected here that
Sir Wilfrid will do some flag-waving
on his own account while in England
as an otTset to the annexation cry in
One of the sure signs of an early
election ia to be found at the printing bureau where a large staff are at
work on the voter's lists.
Musical Score the Feature.
The real feature of "The Isle of
Spice" which cornea to the Auditorium [or tbis afternoon find evening,
with the sane comedy of Mr. Woolsie
and the surprising chorus, iB the
musical score. If you tire of the |
tunes themselves, ban hack and listen restfully to the tootlings from
the orchestral pit. It Is reassuring
to hear how the instruments festoon
themselves around the cleancut melodies like morning glories around tho
lightning rod. There is good excuse
for hope in the future of musical
comedy, for the man who adjusted this
score is no dabster whistling hia
tunes i<> a carpenter for whittling
into usable shapes.

further enraged the bird and with a
shrill scream it pursued the mono

Gilbert, trying to strike his eyea with
its aharp claws.
Realizing his peril Gilbert got out
his revolver. His flrst shot went
wild, but the second entered the body
ot the bird and it fell earthward.
Gilbert lost control of his monoplane
for a second, but managed to get on
an even keel just aa he was about to
crash to earth. He continued his
flight unharmed, hut he was compelled to alight shortly afterwards, having covered only 60 mllea. Gilbert,

To the Editor of the Proapector:
Cranbrook,  B.  C.
Dear Sir:—As the work in connection with the Dominion Cenaus for
1911 commences today, I wiah to re-
quest the cordial co-operation of the
public generally, with the dutiea involved upon the several enumerators.
1 would like particula ly to draw
attention to what might be termed
as the mo-it Important part of the
Census, that is to aay, who are, and
who are uot to be taken in the Cenaus.
The instructions from the Department in regards to those who ought
to be taken, are aa follows:—
"For the purpose of the Census,
the home of any person means the
habitual place of abode, that is to
aay: where the person deeps or
dwells; where hia fixed home is. In
each case where members of \ f.imily
or houaehold are temporarily absent
from their home or usual p.'ace of
abode, their names and records ahould
he entered on the achedules, the facts
concerning them being obtained from
their families or other persons aMe
to give the information.
Domestic servants who live with a
family with whom they are employed,
muat he enumerated where they are
found at service.
It is not possible to lay down a
rule applicable to every case, but
generally a student at college, a sailor, a lumberman in the forest, a
commercial traveller on the road, inmates tfT hotels and other like persons whose period of absence ia more
or less known, should be entered with
the family, that Is to say at their
habitual home or place of abode.
With regards to tbose persons who
are not to be enumerated. The rules
laid down are as follows:
(a) Persona visiting a family.
(b) Transient boarders or lodgers,

j where.
(d) Servants or other persona em-
| ployed in a family or working ln the

homo for the aged, reformatory or
prison or any other institution of a

will not he uaed or given to any person for any other purposes.
The enumerators and all officers
connected with the Census are sworn
in to absolute secrecy.
Yours truly,
Census Commissioner.

Ncrkomls Is situated midway between Winnipeg and Edmonton, iu the center or thp
Province of Saskatchewan. Nokomls is In the heart of Saskatchewan's renowned wheat
district—the Last Mountain Valley.
The future of Nokomis as uu important Kailway Centre is assured by two Transcon-
tlnental Railways,—the Grand Trunk Paciiic and tho Canadian Pacific Another Transcontinental, the Canadian Northern Railway, Is to extend its lino through Nokomis. Vive
large implement warehouses, a Hour mill, und the Imperial Oil Co. now use Nokomis as a
distributing paint. The load taken by these institutions is about to be followed bv Others
of similar importance, and in a short time it is expected that the railway yards will be
hedged in by warehouses and merountil«>ostablishments, and will be active, not only with a
huge national forwarding and traffic business, but with the hum of the local manufacturers
and wholesale enterprises. As a distributing point Nokomis affords advantages which
manufacturers and jobbers will not overlook. It will oonimand a large part of ihc Jobbing*
trade for a considerable distance up and down the main line of tlie Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway, and the two Important brunch lines which will centre there. Its shipping facilities
make it un especially advantageous location for manufttotui'01's, it has been demonstrated
thut un abundance of water for factory use is obtainable, oi
■Jacked by a rich agricultural district, an important railway centre, a distributing
centre and destined to become u manufacturing centre, Nokomis cannot help' continuing to
grow rapidly, and continued growth means continued increase in real estate values and big
profits for those who invest iu real estate there at present prices. When population doubles
real estate values quadruple.    Today is lhe lime to buy lots in Nokomis.

Nokomis Likely to be a Divisional Point on Two Railways
It is claimed that the Canadian Pacific has expended over $40,000 at Strassburg; thirty-two mllea
south of Npkomis, in-endeavoring to secure an adequate supply of water to enable it to make Strassburg
a divisional point. It is understood that sufficient water has not yet been obtained at 8trassburg, and
it Is heing rumored that tbe Canadian Pacific probably will make Nokomis a divisfonat point on its
Pheasant Hills line.
The extension ol the Canadian Northern through Nokomis will assure the luture ofthie rapidly growing new town as one of the important distributing points in Western Canada.   It ls not only possible, but
Nokomis a
Live Busi-
Practically every line ol
business is represented at
Nokomis. It has a planing mill, blacksmith
shops, three lumber yarda
live implement warehouses
two banks—the Northern
.Crown and Canadian bank
of Commerce—a local telephone system, three well
appointed hotels, Ave
grain elevators, flour mill
livery stables (one ol
which is said to have been
built at a cost of 116,000)
tanks of the Imperial Oil
company, and a well edited newspaper, etc.
The business men ot
Nokomis are progressive
and successful; its people
sober, intelligent and industrious. Its location
and environments are such
as to facilitate its commercial prosperity and
render a steady growth
possible.   The surrounding
country ls well cultivated, the Boll is fertile, the farmers thrifty and progressive. Then, too, the geo-
raphical position ol the town Ib such aB to make it an excellent distributing point. From its advantageous surroundings, its commercial facilities, its business opportunities, its advantages as a shipping
nd distributing point, ItB excellent sanitary conditions and water supply and the thousand and one
tilings that tend to make It a desirable place in which to dwell, the town is attracting the attention of
tianufnctiirers and men ot business from afar, and tlle outlook of Nokomis is ol a most bright and
'iromiHing character.   The healthfulness of the climate, the character of the public Improvements, the de-
rnble class of settlers—practlcnlly all Kngllsh speakliiK— together with the beauty of the site, all corn-
line to placo Nokomis in the front rank of modem western towns.
very probable that Nokomis will also be a divisional point on th- Canadian Northern. The Canadian
Northern must have a divisional point at or near Nokomis and as an abundant supply of pure water at a
divisional point is essential, it is believed that Nokomis' advantages in this respect will not he overlooked.
But the future ol Nokomis does not depend upon its being made a divisional point on either the Canadian Pacific or the Canadian Northern. Its varied natural advantages and the fact that it will be served
by three Transcontinental railways practically guarantee tts rapid growth Into an important city.

All the Ear=
Marks of
a City
If there is anything in
laying a good foundation
for future greatness then
Nokomis is surely well in
evidence. The complaint
is frequently heard that
one      Western    town     is
iretty much like another—only more so. In this respect Nokomis is an exception, for here one misses
he homely and unpicturesque shack and square front hostelry of the budding Western towns. Nokomis
Is but a babe in arms in age compared with some towns, yet it can boast of permanent buildings of
brick, cement block and frame construction: whilst many ol the private residences would do credit to
a much more pretentious town. Nokomis is proud of her buildings which are a tribute to the unboun.il-
Ing faith of her people. So marked is this feature of the place that strangers are quick tp perceive it,
and the Rev. Dr. Carmichael, of Winnipeg, voiced this expression when he publicly declared here, a few
eeks ago, that the people of Nokomis have laid the foundation, n ot of a village or town, but rather
Here is a plan of thc property we are offer ng you; study it carefully;
every lot is in the ORIGINAL TOWNHITIO. No lot shown on this plan
Ib further nortli from the Grand Trunk Paciiic station than four
blocks, and no lot is moro than four blocks from Main street. Note the
width ol the business streets—Plratave,, Second nve., Saskatchewan Ht.,
queen street, Main street and King street—all   KKIHTY FKKT WIDE!.
That these lots aro selling rapidl y can he seen from the fact that only
those loft blank are available. No matter whoro you decide to buy, you
will Und that business houses, or residences, aro quite close beside the
property you purchase. Nokomis is a real live, growing town, and tbose
who buy now wilt participate In the advance of prices which is almost
suro to come.

Theodore Roosevelt, ox-president of the United   States   says: "Kvery
person who invests In well selected real estate in a growing section of a
prosperous community adopts the surest and safest method of becoming

Exclusive Sales-Solicitors For Cranbrook and District
Remarkable Escape
of a prisoner
Steve Madura, alias Gabble,, who
was sent down for 30 days by Justice
of tlie Peace Gaff ney, of Wardner,
made a desperate bid for liberty on
Mondny. The charge he was convicted of was "drunk and disorderly,"
and it appears that he had given the
policemen at Wardner some trouble
before he was dually arrested. The
mau la an Italian, aged 40, of the
stocky, bull-necked type, and he waa
being taken to Nelson to serve his
sentence by provincial Constable
('has.  Adney.
.Madura and the constable were sit.
ting in the smoking car of tha first
class coach of No. 313, no other pas-
lingers being present at the time of
the escape, Shortly after the train
had crossed the Goat Kiver canyon,
the prisoner, who was sitting near
the window nursing his head in hia
bands, suddenly dived through tbe
window, The constable made a grab
u the disappearing legs of his man,
but with no success, and ho saw his
irisoner alight on the back of hia
lead down the embankment, with
irms akimbo, as if dead. The train
.vas then travelling at the rate of
about twenty miles nn hour. Constable Adney rushed through the
coaches and apprized Conductor Cameron of the incident, and the latter
in mod lately stopped the train.
Judge of their surprise when the
spot was reached where the man had
alien, that no signs of him were to
>e found. He had disappeared as if
.lie ground had swallowed him up.
\fter waiting for ten minutes the
.rain continued its journey, and Con-
tflble Adney remained to continue
he search, A number of men in the
warding curs of the Hamilton Bridge
'o., who were working on the contraction ol the steel bridge across
he Canyon saw the prisoner fall
•om the train, and a few minutes
■iter saw him pick himself up and
Isappear in the bush. Some of the
ridge crew joined in the search with
lie constable, uud although his tracks
ould he seen for several hundred
ards, tbe man made as clean a get-
way as has ever been recorded.
Vben 313 reached Creston conductor
'auierou informed provincial Con-
jtftbto Gunn, who was on the depot,
>f the occurence, and the latter im-
nediately secured a speeder and hur-
■ied to the scene of the daring es-
:ape, where he met constable Adney,
and together they continued the
leflrch until late in the night. Adney
wired to his chief, advising him of
lis prisoner's escape. On Tuesday
norning constables Gunn and Adney
■vere out again scouring the country
'or their quarry, but they returned
at noon unsuccessful.
Interviewed by our representative,
constable Adney said that he is convinced that the Italian is wanted by
the police for something else, or he
would not havo taken so daring a
chance for his life. Asked if the man
was handcuffed, Adney said he was
not, and he considered there waa no
necessity, as the prisoner was perfectly docile, and that he would leave
ib to any man's judgment If he was
justified in putting handcuffs on a
mau who was being sent down for a
month's Imprisonment on the charge
of "drunk and disorderly."
Adney further added: "I bave taken
dozens of prisoners over tbe Crow to
Mclson, and nlso several britches of
men to New Westminster who were
crazy, and this is the tirst man who
has got away from tue. A. E. Watte
of Wattsburg, and chief of provincial
police Morris, of Cranbrook were sitting in the smoking car with me and
uy prisoner up to a few minutes before he got away. At the spot where
Madura fell there is a sandy embankment, and the ground was ploughed
up from the spot where his head
struck. When I grabbed at his legs
as he was going through the window
he was too far out for me to secure
a hold. I leaned out of the window
and saw him strike the ground. T
had time then to take a bead on him
with my Colt's automatic, but I
thought the man was dead for sure.
I rushed through the carB and told
conductor Cameron that my man had
'caped through the window and was
killed, and Cameron immediately
stopped the train. I do, not believe
'.hat the prisoner gave me hiB right
name anyway, as he was very evasive
>n this respect. He admitted tbat he
vas a vagrant, and that he had heat-
•ii bis way in from Nelson.
The consenses of opinion in Creston
la tbat the police are correct in tbeir
"onjectures thnt the man is wanted
or a more serious offence. That he

ly as it does tlie brute creotion. But
the Bible due. not leave the -object
here. It tell.- of God's pity and love,
nnd of His provision to rescue mankind from sin nnd from death.
Since the Divine sentence i- thnt
only tlie pi rfeet may live, Adam nml
his race, as imperfect sinners, could
not have eternal life after a violation
of the Divine Law; but to meet this
Emergency, Divine Love provided a
Redeemer, who died, "the Just for

hy a Man also comes lho resurrection
of the dead; for as all in Adam die.
even h> nil in Christ shall bu made

(I   Corinthians xv. *_i 2.1).
Thus God has manifested lliJ character in a way and to a decree which
could never have been known to angels or to men hail He not permitted
aiti lo enter the world,    il
has been manifested in the
of (lie death  penalty upon

"In my flesh dwelleth no perfection."
Tiie trial is to demonstrate the loyalty of the will and of the heart. It
is faithfulness in conquering the will
of the flesh and bringing Into subjection to tlie will if Ce d a'l the
powers o| the natural body, ao far
as possible. It is the test of its
love Ity to principle, to righteousness,
to Cod.
St. Paul, as one of these lov.il one«
d-elnred befo-e his death. "I have .
fought a good fight, 1 have finished
my criirse. I have kept the faith.,
henceforth there is laid up for me a
crown of righteousness, which th-*
Lord, the righteous Judge, will giv
me nt that day, nn 1 not to me only
Imt to all those nl*o who love Hi-
appearing." This include? nil wh-
ure hungering and thirsting uml
striving for that righteousness which
Messiah's Kingdom is to bring to th--
Church through the Kir-t Recurreo*
tion. Righteousness will eventually
tie brought to the world through th
establishment of the Messianic Kin;.*
dom. which will nut down all thing-
contrary to the Divine will, und uplift every person and principle loyal
to Cod.
The immortulity for which th"
Apo.-tle declares the Church is t
seek is >f a different kind entirelv
from that which the world may ex
pect. It is ii different kind even from
that which the angels possess. It i*
tho Immortality which is a feature or
quality o| the divine nature. This
immortality, the Scriptures assure
us, wa- originally possessed by the
Heavenly Father alone. We reid.
"The Father alone hath immortality,
dwe ling in the light which no man
can approach, Whom uo man hath
seen nor cnn see." Tbe Only Begot*
ten of the Father, the Logos, when
made flesh, revealed the Father to
mankind (John i, 18) The faithful-
ness ol the Logos us tbe Mnn Christ
Jcmis was rewarded by the Father
Tilth "lory, honor and immortality—

A Contractor's Lament,
Mr. George Ham, publicity expert
of tbe Cunadiun Pacific Railway Co.,
recalled, in connection witb tbe remarkable era of railway construction
now iu progress, particularly in Ontario, and the west, a lamentation
mude to him twenty live years ago by
a railway contractor, It was ut the
conclusion of the bui.diug of the
C.P.R. to the const, and tlii.4 contractor wailed: "Well, I'll have to sell all

Canadian Winter Ports.
The two winter ports. Halifax and
St. John, have begun the serious
work of the season, fetching in loads
of Wtmlvants that manage to get in
by a few thousands before the St.
Lawrence breaks up. Already this
year severul thousands of immigrants have arrived at these ports.
This is the flr.t season for the two
ships of the new Canadian Northern
line to carry in immigrant, to Halifax, which is their regular winter
port, just as St. John is the winter
port of the Canadian Pacific. Though
not originally built for immigrant
traffic these vessels have been adapted to thc business, Hnd curry third*
class passengers much more comfortably than the average ocean liner
with regular "steerage" accomodation. But of course the usual third-
class passenger bound for Canada is
not over particular us to niceties of
accommodation provided he gets
three square meals a day, a bunk at
night, and pknty of fresh air. From
all present indications the immigration this year will be considerably
ahead of 1919. Halifax has good reason to be glud of being the terminus
of a new line. There is no reason
why both Halifax and St. John
should not continue to become more
rapidly than ever the great east gate
to Canudu; and it is the greut hope
of both provinces thut future immi-
grution of the right sort will be less
likely to pass by the fertile fields
along the Atlantic for further but not
greener fields in the prairie provinces.
He H»d Not Changed.
Sir Jumes Whitney bus ulwaya enjoyed a reputation for being a militant politician, ln Opposition he
thundered across the Louse like a
bombardment of heavy guns, and even
as leader of a strong Government he
occasionally feels called upon to rush
a position. The Premier uf Ontario
looks the part, and his miff bearing
and determined walk betoken a fighter. All this combined to cause an
amusing little scrap of conversation
which was overheard in the ladies'
gallery during the last session.
The House was sitting, und two women, who apparently possessed political friends, had wandered in to look
upon the scene. They passed a number of comments on the various well-
known members who happened to be
moving in and out or occupying seats
iu the House, At last Sir Jumes entered, and oue uf tbem turned to the
other witb the remark, "Being in
power does u it calm the Premier.
Why, I positively believe he looks
more bellicose thun ever."
"Oh, I don't know," replied her
friend, "I do uot think he in any
stouter tha:. he wus lust year."

Stag   In  Station.
The meet of the Surrey Staghounds
at Crowhurst, Engta*hd, the other day
had a remarkable finish at Upper
Wnrlingham Railway station. The
stag took a course across country till
it ran on to the main railway line
towards London. It continued along
the track until it arrived ut Upper
Warlingham station, where it mounted the platform, and ran into tlie waiting room, where it dropped to the floor
exhausted. One of the hounds was
close upon the stag, and also reached
the platform, but dropped before H
could" enter the doorway, being as
exnausted as tne iniarry. The station officials closed the doors and
thus kept out the remainder of the
fiacJt tuut cume up severul minutes
ater. The stag was eventually taken
to a stable and lodged there till it
was fit to be removed.
Objected to Theology.
Owen Seaman, editor of Punch, was
the principal guest at a dinner of the
London Authors* Club recently; which
was followed by a discussion on "Humor." Mr. Seaman began with a story
deprecating tha spoil.ng of a good
dinner by any discussion at all.
There were throe characters in the
story, a bluebottle fly and two Scots-
n.ju. The story at once struck a note
of probability by showing the Scots-
mc.i drinking whisky. Ihe bluebottle
buzzed ou the pane; otherwise silence
This was broken by one of the Scotsmen trying to locate the bluebottle
with zoological exactitude. Said the
"Sandy, I'm thinking if yon fly Is a
birdie or a beastie."
The otber requied. "Man, don't spoil
good whisky with religious conversation."
A Story of  Kitchener.
Lord Kitchener is sometimes accused of a lack of humor, but the following story, which is going the round
of the Loudon clubs, goes far to show
that such an accusation is unfounded.
He happened to be lunching, not lung
ago, with a friend at a well-known
club, when a rising young politician,
wim is not noted (ur his luck of self-
confidence, entered the room.
" 'Morula', Kitchener," called out
the youthful politician, genially.
The victor of Khartoum, who does
not love to have liberties taken with
hnu, stared ut him without u smile.
"Mr. Ho-und So," be replied, "I wish
you wouldn't cull me Kitchener. It's
su beustly formal,   Cull me Rertie,"

! Amonc the many ship captains who
j contributed to the foundation of Brit-

remarkable was Captain .lohn Mon res
of the Felice, n vessel of two hundred
and thirty tons bufden, a mere yacht
in comparison with the vessels of to-
day. Meares did a number of things
worthy of note, and some of historical importance. Oue was to brim.
Chinese to the Paciiic Const. That
wa3 in 1738. The question of Oriental immigration is. therefore, more
than one hundred .enr3 old.
The Felice had a companion ship.
the Iphigenia, commanded by Captain Douglas, and the crews of both
vessels comprised mechanics, Chinese
smiths and carpenters, ag woll as
European artisans. "The Chinese,"
writes Meare-, "were fhipped as an
experiment; they have heen generally
esteemed a hardy and industrious a*
well as ingenious race of people. They
live on rice and fish, and, requiring
but low wages, it was a matter of
economical consideration to employ
them, and during the whole voyage
there was every reason to be satisfied
with their services." That voyage
from China to Nootka occupied al
most four months.
The natives in canoes came out to
inspect Meares' ship in much thi*
same manner as when Captain Coolj
was there. Two of their chiefs went
on board, one of whom, wrote Meares
in his rather quaint style, "had a
fine open arrangement of features.
The inferiot people were very proper
and personable men. A sealskin filled with oil was immediately handed
on board, ot which the chief*- took a
small quantity, and they ordered it
to be returned to the people in the
canoes who soon emptied the vessel
of this luxuriant liquor."
Meare? promptly set his artisans,
both Chinese and European, to work
constructing a house to be used by
those whom he would leave at Nootka, and to form a headquarters for
his trading operations. The house
'was surrounded by a breastwork on
which was mounted a small cannon.
The next undertaking was the
build.ng of a vessel!—the first built
on our Paciflc Coa.-t—and christened
the "North-West America." It was
of forty tons burden, and in its con
struction the Chinese carpenters were
