Shall Canadians Conserve or
Destroy Their Forests
By Hon. E. H. Bronson, Ottawa
The conservation ol natural resour
cm la perhaps the mnst Important la-
aue belore thc public ol thn American
continent today, and Ihc one dcserv-
edly attracting the moot attention.
Certainly, thero Ib not n Blngle in
dividual tn faiuuta or thc I'nited
States who IB not vitally concerned
In lt whether he in aware n( It or
not, Inasmuch «h it represents Interests upon which is built our commercial and industrial prosperity. It
lollows, therefore, that sn.h a question deserves our most careful consideration and our carne.it efforts in
the promotion of the objects It has
In view. It is tbe purpose ol this
paper to deal briefly wi'h one phase
nf this problem, namely, the conservation of our timber resources and
particularly as to their protection
from fires started by settlers ami by
the railroads.
Let ub glance for a moment, flrst
at the results that have followed tbe
exploitation of our timber resources
coupled as it has been practically up
to the pre&ent time throughout the
greater part of Canada, with liability to settlement at almost any time
In any part ot the areas, even in
the very best of them. In the eerly
'60's a colony of German setters
was located on what was called the
Opeongo road, leading up tho vnlley
of the Madawaska river in Cntarlo in
tbe very best timber belt In the province, located on the height of land
and extending from the Mississippi
river to Lake Temiskamlng.
They, raised two or thne fairly
good crops, exhausted tho light soli,
and In doing so burned up many millions of dollars worth ot tbc llnest
timber. A smaller colony went into
the same belt up thc York branch of
the same stream raised a few bushels
of oats and potatoes, a little hay,
and destroyed more timber than was
ever taken out of that section. A
little farther to the south, along the
Toronto-Ottawa branch of the Canadian Pacific railway, the whole country, practically all the woy from
Perth to Petcrboro, was devastated
hy settlers' fires, and while it might,
with proper conservation, be a very
valuable timber reserve, today, it is
virtually valueless even for agricultural purposes. The same iB true
along much nf thc line of thc Ottawa
section of the Grand Trunk railway
between Arnprior and Whitney. Farther westward in this same belt, one
hundred square miles of heavily timbered territory were destroyed in 24
hours. In the province of Quebec
similar burnings occurred some years
ago, as, for instance, on the Gatln-
eau and North Nation rivers and in
Bonaventure county, where, in each
case, a colony of settlers was located, two or three cropB rais.d, timber that would now be worth to the
public and to the private licensees
millions nf dollars destroyed by fire.
while each location Is to lay a desolate wilderness. Almost every licensee of the Crown report similar
cases of timber destruction, but time
does not permit lurther detail reference to such disasters. SuTlce it
to aay that the accepted opinion a
mong practical lumbermen ls that
much more timber has been destroyed
by Ore than has been cut by tbe axe.
The natural eflect of such uncertain conditions as to settlement with
in or adjacent to his holdings, and
the inevitable results therefrom, was
the prompting! ol the licensee to skim
his territory, taking out from time
to timo only the best timber, without any regard to the Imminent risk
ol fires from the refuse of earlier cuttings thus left scattered through thc
forests, without any consideration as
to the consequent destruitlon of the
smaller trees, or to the ma'. Ing any
eflort whatever at reforestation.
It is true that, mainly owing to
our reckless treatment and to tho
absence ol conservative methods of
forest management, our best timber,
and probably the greater part ol it
ol whatever quality has already disappeared. It Is also truo that conditional as to the cutting of timber,
and as to the creation ol forest reserves have improved somewhat during later years, but there Is a necessity tor still greater Improvement if
the remainder ol the timber Ib to be
preserved and its growth made permanent; but particularly in the matter ot protection Irom settlers' clearance fires and fires from ratlway locomotives, even these Improved conditions must be met by a more rigid
enforcement ot protective measures.
In considering this question of future protection we are compelled, at
the very outset, to admit that settlement upon public lands cannot altogether he stopped or prevontod, but
that the two Interests ol thn proper
placing ol our growing population
upon tbe soil and ot the protection
and utilization ol our forest heritage
must go orf band In hand as can heat
ba done, having regard to the importance ot both ol them; lor be It remembered, the licensee or lumberman
la   not   hoetile    to, but rather tha
Great  Victory
trienit of, settlement that is strictly
legitimate. There ean he no doubt
that, without encroaching upon Umbered territory, there is sutlleient
land in all sections of the Dominion
for all ilemanils of legitimate settlement tor many years to come, vory
much better land thnn the poor soil
upon which timber.Is mostly found,
land already available nr being opened up by our oxtnnBive railroad systems.
The question then arises, bow can
this apparently complex puiblem
best be solved. Borne thirty years
ago a mooting ot the Quebec Timber
Limit Holders Association was held
at the city of Montreal, at which
there were present, among many
others representing the government
of Quebec, Mr. K. E. Tactic, at that
time and still the very able and indefatigable Deputy Minister of Lands
and Forests; and Dr. B. K. Fcruow,
now Dean of the Forestry Faculty of
Toronto University then Chiel Forester of the Department of Agriculture of the United States.
At tho meeting, for the first time,
so far as tbe writer is aware, a proposal was made and attor discussion,
adopted by tbe mooting, that seemed
to be the only satisfactory and effective solution of that problem,
namely, that a cnrctiu examination
and rocord be mado of all public
lands as to tholr value for agricultural or forestry purposes, nnd that
all the lands as shown by such examination to be best suited for agriculture be set apart for settlement,
and that all lands shown to be mo.it-
ly valuable for forostry pui-potes to
be set apart as forest lesorveB.
That suggestion has been acted upon to a greater or less extent by
the establishment of timber reserves
tn some ot tbe provinces ot the Dominion, but it would not appear tbat
in any of them has the setting apart
of timbered lands, for exclusively
forestry purposes, been given such
effective enforcement as would produce the host results; for unless settlement be confined altogether to tht
agricultural areas, (where alone it
should he permitted the best interests of the settler being considered)
and absolutely none ol it to be allowed on the forest areas, or in such
proximity thereto as to endanger the
growing timber—such division of the
public lands would he of Utile avail
in promoting the best interests of
agriculture as well as tbose of tores-
try. Those two Interests are well
deserving of the very best treatment
we can give them, inasmuch as, together, they constitute the vcry foundation upon which is built our national prosperity.
Next to settlers' fires, probably
one ot the most, (if not the most)
prolific destructive agencies in starting forest fires is the coal-burning
locomotive—the wood-burning engine
being absolutely out of ail question
even in construction work. It is a
fact that at one time, not so very
many yearB ago, practically the entire right of way, and considerable
areas on both sides of.it, ol the
'Soo Line,' • ot the Canadian Pacific
Hallway trom Sault Ste Marie to
North Bay were on lire, and that
was tho second burning. It Is
ported that the third burning alo.ig
that lino took place during the past
Mr. Henry S. Graves, Ohiel Forester ol the i'nited Stales Government
in bis annual report of 1910 just Issued says that eighty-four per cent
of the fires during the calendar year
1909 were duo to the 'lack of preventive enro on tbe part of the users bt
tbe forests and of the railroads traversing thoni. He says that the
railroad companies renllve that such
tires are against their own interests
and 'have shown an admirable spirit
in co-operating to prevent them,'
and suggosts that the railroads be
required either to ure elticient spark
arresters or to burn oil. And in reporting on the use nf oil as fuel during 1910 Mr. Graves states that 'the
use of oil as fuel brought ideal results. Tho Chicago, Milwaukee and
Pugot Sound railroad uses oll-burn-
lng engines passing through the forests ol tho northwest. During the
summer ot 1910 which was disastrous lor forest fires reports show that
not a single fire was started from
the engines of that company. On
all lines using sparking fuel repeated
tires were started, in somo cases, 25
to 30 fires ln a slnnle day within a
stretch of fifty miles.'
District Forester W, B. Grcoley In
charge of all forest work from the
Great LakeB to tho Washington state
line made tho statement, at the soml
annual meeting of tbe Weatom Forostry and Conservation Association,
held a short time ago, that 'last
Bummor 945 fires started within 2'0
feet of tlie rights of way of thn
Groat Northern Pacific Railroads in

ing roads, or ono for every two-
tblrdB ot a mile ol railroad.' Mr.
Greeley added, 'I am convinced that

Enthusiastic Procession  in Honor of R.
L. Borden
Leaders Exchange Congratulations—Sir Wilfrid and Mr. Borden Meet at Ottawa
Banquet—Many Lawyers Present
Ottawa, Sept. 26.—The Conservatives ot Ottawa tonight celolirated
the victory of September 21 with a
procession which surpassed anything
of Its kind ever before Been in tho
capital. II. L. Borden, George H.
Perley, chief Conservative whip and
the two local Conservative members
Dr. J. L. Chabot and A. E. Fripp,
wero the central figures. Tbe carriage conveying them wos drnwn by
sixty stalwart conservatives and a
long procession of automobiles, carriages, vehicles of all kinds, and conservative organizations on foot took
forty minutes to pass a Riven point.
Mr. Borden's carriage made its progress along tho route of march to
the accompaniment of a steady roar
ot applause.
Five bands took part ln the parade
which was led by a single horseman.
Twenty-five feet behind caiio 100
mounted men. Behind thcin again
wero sixty mon drawing Mr. Bordons
carriage, followed by hundreds of
men and youths on foot carrying
Union Jacks and transparencies.
Then came long lines of vehicles of
all descriptions. Ono of thi ti apparencies bore the words "Reciprocity is dead," another, "Ottawa welcomes Canada's new premier," while
another was inscribed, "Ono flag, one
fleet, one throne." Tbe parade organized in the centre ol the city anl
iu.u chod to Mr. Borden's residence'
on. Wurtemburg street, where the appearance ol the premier-ehct excited
wild enthusiasm. Here torches were
lighted and the procession moved off.
The route was via IUdoau Hall, Wellington street, Laurier avenue west
and IUdoau street, back to Mr. Borden's residence.
The celebration was not confined
to Ottawa people only, several hundred Conservatives from the Ottawa
valley   and     Quebec   points   having
places in tbo parade.
Ottawa, Sopt. 26—At a dinner
given last night at the Hidiau club,
Sir Wilfrid Laurier ond It. L. Borden
met for tlie tirst time since the election. Sir Wilfrid Laurier extendod
his hearty congratulations to the
man who hnd at lost succeeded in
defeating bim nt tbe polls. The two
great rivals grasiied each other's
hands cordially. Mr. Borden, "-tio
expressed pleasure that he had won,
was touched by the cordialities of
Sir Wilfrid's Congratulations.
The dinner to Kail Grey waB a
farewell given by the members ol the
club. His excellency Earl Grey sat
to tho right ol the chairman and hir
Wilfrid to his lelt, Mr. Borden sitting at the right ol his excellency.
Both premier and premier-elect paid
high tributes to the services rendered
by Karl Grey to Canada. Mr. Borden wore the customary dross suit,
while Sir Wilfrid wore the uniform of
an imperial privy councillor with ai
array of ordors.
Ottawa, Sept. .,20.—The Even nr
Free Press In describing the first
meeting of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
R, L. Borden last night says;
"The tarownll banquet tendered
last night by the members of the
Rldeati club to hla excellency Earl
Grey, was of unusually historic Interest. It was the flrst public appearance since the general election of
the old and now prime ministers, and
the conduct of both was an Inspiration.. The motto of tbe Rideau club
being 'None for party and all tor the
state.' It was particularly fitting
that under its roof the veteran Liberal chieftain should publicly bow
himself out of power, and the vigorous and victorious Conservative leader bow himself in. Both played the
game like true men. The fallen
champion held his head high and confessed himself honorably beaten; the
successful ..one   accepted   his success
wltb modoaty and with consideration
for bis vanquished foe. Tbe speeches ot these two, aB Mr. Tavers Lewis
chairman, said; added "dignity and
distinction' to tho occasion. They
were an inspiration to everyone present. Curiously enough loth Sir
Wilfrid and Mr. Borden travellel
from their homes to tho club in a
street car. Tbey met in the reception room. They shook hands like
old friends. They congratulate!
each other, and each had a merry
Sir Wilfrid started upstairs, then
with inborn courtesy, stopped, waited for Mr. Borden and followed tba
gentleman, the pair proceeded to th
top chatting pleasantly. Sir Wilfrid was in the best of spirits. He
bore no signs of the campaign which
ho has been through.
The gentlemen of tho Rideau club
cheered both the men long and loud,
no more one than the other. And
were tbey not right? Are not both
men great citizens and la not Canada proud of both? It waa truly a
historic gathering, and lt was a coin
cldence that it bid farewell to thc
beat governor-general Canada ever
had, together with the first public
reception to the vanquished and victorious champions of one of tbe greatest parliamentary fights Canute
haB ever had.
Ottawa, Sept. 86.—J. U. Nincent,
the defeated Conservative candidate,
stated today tbat be would protest
the election of Hon. Oharles Murphy.
Among the charges he will make are
those of corruption, and that le
some polls there were mora vote-
cast than were on the list. Definite
returns have not yet reached the city
regarding the majority which Mr.
Murphy had, but It ls understood to
be over   1,000.
Ottawa,    Sept.   26.—It Is possibl,
that   Sir Wilfrid Laurier witl leave
some time next month to spend three
weeks or a month in California.

K. T. Lawrence and his son Lester,
E29 Seventh avenue, returned early
yesterday morning trom an autonoo
bile trip to Cranbrook, B.C., In
which they had many queer experiences, they being the first people to
ever drive an automobile in the Canadian towns of Creston and Klteli
ener. Mrs. Lawrence and daughter
Hazel made the trip to Cranbrook,
but returned hy train becaise of the
hardships which had to Le endured
owing to poor roads.
Mr. Lawrence and family left Spokane Sunday morning, September 9,
going trom Spokane to Bonners Ferry, Idaho, thence to Port Hill, Canada.
In speaking about his trip last evening he said : "In driving an auto
mobile from Spokane to Cranbrook,
B.C., many miles of rough road have
to be passed over. In tnsny places
we bad to cut a trail through tbe
woods in order to proceed, because
of the big stumpB which had been
left in the wagon roada. I was surprised to find so many people in several Canadian towns that bad never
seen an automobile and we created
more excitement than a circus. The
Canadian government is spending a
great deal of money on roads and
for many miles we had ideal traveling.
"My son and I returned Irom Cranbrook by Montana, crossing the Flat
bead reservation. Notwithstanding
the hardships occasioned by rough
roads we had a most delightful trip.'

Toulon, Fiance, Sept. 25.—More
than four hundred oflicers and men of
the French battleship Liberte lost
their lives today when the ship was
torn apart and totally d stioyed in
.he harbor here by an explosion of
ber magazines. The battleship Re-
publique was badly damaged and the
battleships Democratic and Vertie
suffered heavily from the masses of
twisted Iron and armor plute burled
upon their decks.
Tbis is tho greatest disns'.er that
has ever befallen tho French navy
and In magnitude is almost without
precedent In the annuls of the wo Ida

The explosion, which wised out
one of France's most powerful battleships, occurred at 5.35 o'clock
this morning. It was the result ol | began rescue

spread rapidly in spite of all efforts
to extinguish them and reaehed the
magazines before there was time to

with tremendous violence, sowing
leath and destruction in every direction.
It will be necessary to go through

list of the victims can to prepared.

evident that the fire had obtained
firm hold. Signals of diitress vere
flashed to other ships, and these dispatched steam pinnaces and launcbes
to assist in the work of extinguishing the flames and rescuing the men.
The position of the fire made It Impossible to flood tho magazines, and

It was followed by tbree others at
one-minute Intervals. Tben came
the final tortitic detonation, which

Those still on deck were burled
skyward amid a shower ol iron and
steel. The boats of the rescuers
were sunk and serious damage was
done to thc Hepubliqite, which lay
at anchor close by. Two ul her
decks were stove in, and one of the
I.irerte's armor plates was hurled a-
gainst Iier port side and demoltthed
the cabin of an absent ensign.
For a few minutes after the final
explosion an intense black cloud of
smoke hovered over the harbor.

Mrs. Harris and Miss Beth Harris
were out for a ride wltb Captain Wil
Hams, who accompanied them, and all
were in automobile tenue. Her mother
and sister greeted Emma effusively
Their escort extended his hand, but
Mrs. Brooks was too much occupied
for once in responding to her parent's
embraces to notice It. He stalked in
with rude familiarity without rcraov*
Ing his automobile cap, upon which hf
bnd pushed up his goggles and found
himself face to face with Smith.
"Hello! You here?" he said by way
of greeting, greatly surprised to se*?

"Ya-as," replied .Jlmsy, "I'm here
"Ought to take a berth here." grunt*
eij his employer, looking round for the
most comfortable chair and lustultlng
himself In it.   "You're always around."
"Much ns possible." admitted Smith
tranquilly, rem.tl'ilng standing. "How

Mrs. Harris and Beth bustled in.
throwing open tiieir automobile coats
and disclosing very handsome gowns
that contrasted strangely with Km*
ma's poor little cotton frock.
"Why, pood evening, Jimsy!" cried
Mrs. Harris.   "Where's Joe?"
"Gone out for a walk. I gueBB," hn
answered,  "Howdy, Beth?"
"Very well, thank you, Mr. Smith."
responded that young person somewhat frigidly,
"Mr, Smith?" he echoed, looking at
her curiously.
Thn girl raised her eyebrows and
affected surprise.
"Isn't that riglit?" she inquired,
"Yes- Smith is the name," he replied. "It ain't that I've forgot it—no-
only to remind yuu that the first ono—
Jlmsy—ain't   been  changed."
"No, deurie; Jimsy wouldn't know
what it meant to be mistered," ob-
bcrved Mrs. Harris with un intonation
uf disdain.
"Me neither," put in Williams,
"but a man's pot to get used to it."
"Have you got used to it, captain?"
asked Emma,
"Yes and no.   I never had it given
to rue until 1 came east always used
to ho Cup'n Hill or something on that
order- but with eastern airs and a bit
of prosperity your old ways have got
to change,"
Mrs. Harris had been gazing about
her deprecatingly. She wanted to
know why they should stay in the dining-room. Km ma explained that they
hud succeeded in Inducing the janitor
to have the bUting-room papered and
that it was all  upset.
"This ain't bad," commented Captain Williams. "It's real cozy, and
you can see n woman's had a hand in
the arrangement."
"But it's a little bit of a stuffy four
roomed flat." objected Beth, turnim?
up ber pretty nose. "Really, I should
lie In one."
"Well, Beth." remarked Smith, with
his quiet drawl,  "you  uever cau tell.
Maybe you will."
Beth made a grimace,
"I   would. If  1   had  to do  my  owr.
work, washing dishes— ugh!"
"I don't aee how Km i tin stands It,"
declared Mrs. Harris. "It's Just drudg
"Well, mother, please remember It'i

please, please, dou't you mind."
"I think It's n great little nook. Mrs.
Brooks," opined Williams,
"Thank you, captain." she said graft--
"And fixed up alee and comfortable
Can't say as anything looks cbean."
'Thank you again. Perhaps It Isn't."

It to me. I earned what I earned, and
then I ma<le that earn more."
"You sure ain't glveu It no vacations, captain." commented bis superintendent dryly.
"And that's right." affirmed Mrs
Harris with some heat. "I believe In
men getting money. Mr. Harris was
one of (hose soft hearted men who

Using the Gospel as a Disguise
Shanghai.—Letters from Canton give
disquieting accounts of un ingenious
device of the revolutionaries to distribute seditious pamphlets in tlie guise
of gospels published by the British
and Foreign Qible society, and other
missionary societies, One of the par*
ticipuuts in the recent attack on Admiral Li Chun wns observed to throw
away a box which was found to contain bombs concealed beneath two gospels. These books are readily obtainable, and thus the revolutionaries
easily pose as mission colporteurs.
The revolutionary scare in Canton
is possibly overrated, but the authorities are Biost nervous and the wealthy
continue to quit the city. The missions have heen requested to temporarily suspend the street sales.

Effect on Woman of the Color ot
i Her Clothes.
Tht ttrvtnt Probltm Apprtaehtd by
t Ont   Houatktap.r   In   t   Dttldtdly
Ntvtl   and   Intartating   Wty   That
Wtrktd Batutifully All Rtund.
Dear Elan—This It a season when
Color Id clothes rertalnly rum riot
Uauy of the cotiililnntlona are fetching aud fiiacliiiiiiiiK If put together by
au artist, but wheu the layman's fancy la turned loose in this work the re-
■ult It often dlsnsiruua Indeed. Now,
please explain. It you can, the reason
.why aouie women never seem to understand their color atliultle*. And
■till another question. Why don't women Btudy the InlHience of color on
tht spirit and reeulate Ilie colon In
their wnrdrolie iiuordlngly?- If tbey
Old It would mnke dressing so much
more Interesting, don't you think}
To give you au Idea uf whnt I mean
concerning the effect of color on Ibt
■plrlt, t black gown aggravates mel-
tnrami noes or botteo hull, ih-
ancboly of mood. Put on a black
gown In I somber mood and see If It
doea not teem port of the mood.
Brown la another color that ahould be
■voided In depressed tlmea. Brown
lt a charming color, but should be
worn only wltb u glowing mood. Gray
Is another color to bewure of ln down
timet, but wblte never draga on the
•plrlt. lt haa alwaya a terene Influence.
1 am trying the effect of color on
my own ego. and the otber evening
1 went to a dinner wblcb 1 waa sure
would be deadly dull because 1 happened to know who had been Invited
to lt—nice people, but not In the least
Inclined to be Jolly. 1 waa eure tba
women would wear conventional black
evening gowns. So 1 wore a brilliant
red frock. And you bave no Idea
bow my spirits rose tbe Instant I pot
It on. When I entered my friend's
drawing room I waa conscious of the
lively clash ot the atmosphere of my
gown and tbe dull atmosphere of tbt
dinner party. 1 felt appreciation ot Its
cheery radiance tingling In the air.
There was a apeclal warmth tn tbt
iway I waa greeted by those people
that would not have been ln their
manner, however cordial, simply and
aolely because ot tbe relief tbat my
gown brought their aplrlta. That
evening waa a Jolly tuccess just because of tbe color 1 had chosen to
i Tbere'a no color like red for putting
tbe beart Into one. and a red gown la
a wonderful nerve aaver. Ureen Is a
refreshing color to wear, especially ln
summer. A gown of tbla abade on a
hot day will invite one'a thougbtt
■way from tbe discomforting temperature.
I Vet, It'a a fascinating study and
geta more ao tbe deeper one goea Into
It. Women who stick to few colors
or who wear colors wltbout relatlou to
mooda are Immensely behind In tha art
of being attractive.

while waitlug ber turn to be served by
the white aproned salesman sbe noticed the neat manner in wblcb he had

Let us suppose a countryman, carpetbag In hand, lu bare alighted at
tbe union station and set out to see
the lights. Although bis nnme Is conveniently printed un Ibe outside of bis
bag or set down in a legible band on
the botel register, lie is amused to Hnd
himself hospitably greeted by an utter

But the atranger la very affable and
Itys himself out to entertain the newcomer. Tbey itroll about town In

a lordly disdain of money; good fellowship Is Its own reward.
The two atroll by devious waya until
finally while tbey are walking arm In

lying on the pavement He pauses to
examine It. It ls a miniature globe
about tbe also of a billiard ball. Tbe
•tranger turns lt over curiously tn bis
fingers and finally sees tbat lt la fitted
with a small plug, which comes out
nnder pressure. Continuing bla explorations, be then unscrews the top
ot the plug, takes out a piece of crumpled paper, shows bis dupe Ihe empty
box and throws tbe paper on tbe
ground. Tbere Is a similar lilt of paper In tbe tmull chamber at the end
of the plug, but this tbe countryman
does not see. The two then stroll on,
discussing tbe mysterious ball.
Presently they come upon a worried
looking man, who la studying tho

wants to know whether be has lost

man. "Why, I've lost nn Invention of

Dr. King's victory in Kootenay is

triumph is a tribute to the member-

Alas, "Poor Yorick" his triumph

His smart-Aleck address la>.t winter in which he urged the annexation
of Canada to the United States, a-
roused the instinct oi Canad an nationality and strengthened the spirit
of pride ani loyalty as members of
the  world-wide British empire.
The tire burned silently bK steadily in the heart of Canada during all
the months of delate at Washington,
The Canada Conservatives fanned it
into rtame in the sessions of the parliament at Ottawa. During the
last six weeks' campaign Bourassa
plied the French of Quebec witb drastic excoriation of the liberals' naval
policy and alleged extravagance and
with demagogic appeals to the French idea of independent nationality
for Quebec. Borden charged the
United States with intentions of annexation that it never dreamed of
nnd twisted an innocent statement
by President Taft into a meaning
and a connection that are the reverse of those in the president's mind.
The combination of what the Canadian wits called Bonraasic acid and
Borden's condensed milk, reacting on
the public utterances of such public
men in the United States as Speaker Clark, convinced the Canadian?
that reciprocity world finally eventuate In annexation.
Every liberal province, except Alberta, according to present returns,
has cut down the liberal lead severely. Quebec was liberal and remains
liberal, though much less so, but
British Columbia, Manitoba and Ontario not only were conservative, but
remain conservative hy increased majorities. Alberta ts reported aB
having returned five liberals and two
conservatives to the new parliament
as against four liberals and three
conservatives in the present one. The
Conservative gain of nineteen in Ontario and the liberal loss of eighteen
in Quel.ec chiefly turned the tide.

If therefore we are to take effective
Htepn to conserve our forests and
their future growth no time should
be lost in pressing upon tbe proper
authorities the absolute necessity of
tiie prompt adoption, by all Canadian railways tra\ersing uny forest
ureas, of oil us fuel upon a'l locomotives. Sucb action cannot be called
radical because, as freight carriers,
such railways have a paramount Interest in any reform that wi'l protect the raw material thnt contributes    so large a    proportion directly
. nnd indirectly, of their revenue. And
now that railway development is
progressing so rapidly in Canada the
present would Heem to be a mont opportune tlmt to ndvocntc not only
tlie adoption of the safer and equally cheap fuel, bnt to secure, if possible, such reasonable legislntlon    a.

(These Include thriflj nlrendy In lorcn

Compliance with sui4i regulation!
would devolve upon the UotalM, who
in. lor most obvious reason., the
best agent and in fart tbe only on;1
upon whom tbe government can satisfactorily rely to protect and con
.serve bis timber holdings, nt a mini
mum cost. But bow best can we
change the. iu main cases, rather
reckless huilientiHii, into the careful
aud conservative operator ?
Would not the best, aud in lact
the only way to secure his adoption
of new methods of forest treatment
be. to give him a positive guarantee
—even of the nature of a contract if
you will—that the timber that he
protects and whose growth he promotes, shall lie permanently secured
to him against any appropriation or
destruction by either tbe axe ol the
settler or by his elearnnce tires; and
would it be unreasonable that he
should ask the government—his landlord—to assist him in the conservation of his forest holdings to their
mutual benefit, by refusing all locations to real or pretending settlers,
within the torest areas ?
Without such absolute guarantee
can it reasonably be expected that
su:h regulations will be carried out
by thc licensee, otherwise than in
the more or less perfunctory manner
that has hitherto obtained to a large extent, and that haB been productive of such great waste; instead ot
with that zeal and alacrity which a-
lone can secure the very best results
and which would be born ol his assured protection ol the property under his care.
Permit mc to draw attention to
one more phase ol this conservation
question, viz.: the lact that by lar
the greater part ol the cost ol all
articles mantilactured from torest
prodicts, represents wages paid to
labor. Hence the labor elemtnt ol
our population has a much larger interest than any other in the conservation in perpetuity of our lorest resources to the end that in the cutting of the timber as it matures, the
harvest ol raw material lor their employment may be an annual one for
all time to come.
A somewhat extended acquaintance
wltb conditions in tbe Adirondack^
in New York state warrants the opinion that the coarser timber—the
spruce and hemlock—resulting from
more recent lumbering operations is
icing produced in larger quantities
than were obtained from the better
pine that practically disappeared
years ago. Conditions now changing so rapidly in Canada will doubtless produce the same result with us
so that while our best timber Ib
gone, that still remaining, though
poorer In quality, il protected hv
conservation will eventually be
found to be equal in voltine to our
best pine (or even greater in volume)
and It will no doubt also be lound
that by the adoption ol proper conservation methods the supply can be
maintained in perpetuity.
The probable early completion of
thc Georgian Day canal will doubtless mean the making o! the vnlley
ol the Ottawa river, Irom Montreal
to the head ot Lake Temlska.ning,
with its many waterrowers, n great
industrial hive, particularly for the
manufacture ol woodpnlp and pap.tr,
provided sufficient promise be gl"en
of the permanent supply ol timber
lor those industries; but within,
such promise capitalists will hardly
risk the very large expenditures necessary to build the mills and other
extensive Improvements required to
exploit such enterprises.
In these competitive days II one
would conduct his business with the
greatest success, he must do so upon
a large scale, and unless one has had
actual experience one can have no
idea ol the immense sums required
to install a successful wood and
manufacturing plant.
lt is quite possible, nay even probable, thnt some may think that
lumbermen are too sanguine as to
tho supply in perpetuity ol our timber; and thnt olTnrtn In tbat direction am labor lost; hut thore who
have had experience In such matters
nnd huve soon the timber actually
reproducing Itscll over large areas,
will say most positively that—given
natural conditions, a tblng not difficult to do, provided only that Brt
losses be prevented—It la Just as certain to do so, for all time, as any
othor of the ninny prolific products
of the vegetable kingdom.
Let us tben give Nature a chance
to conserve and perpetuate our forests, and sbe will at tbe same time
conserve and regulate our water supply—lor a forest carpet Is Nature's
best storage    reservoir—aid   ln pre
venting on- spring floods and the
consequent erosion ol our river banks
supplement the flow of water during
the low season, and thm maintain
the all year around efllciency ol our
valuable water powers; fertilise our
valleys by the supply of needed moisture: maintain our game and llsh
preserves; give us necessary sanitary
drainage of thc vcry best kind, and
canal and river navigation that can
be relied on lor the development and
extension of both our domestic and
foreign commerce nt a minimum cost
create conditions in the highest degree satisfactory to the settler, thc
timber licensee, the general public,
and all our representative governments; point the farmer to the best
agricultural districts, where he can
secure a good living lor himself and
lamily, inBtead ol wringing a reluctant support lor them [rom a scanty
soil; tn.'iic to the various provinces
lor all time to come u lurge nnd constant revenue from their permanent
foreBt lands; give the licensee satisfactory protection to his timber holdings; guarantee to all wood-consuming industries a reliable supply of
raw material; furnish to labor the
steady employment so desired by the
working man, and through labor a
demand lor the surplus farm products ol the legitimate settler.
Shall we not, then, I repeat, give

Trevor breathed bard. All doubt tbal
Miss Iddleston had beeu sent to In

letters be had written and fortunately

struck him. The best defense agalusi
a woman is Uie opposite of fighting
ber—tbat Is, making love to her. He
would outwit ber la this way. It did
Dot occur to bim tbat by so doiug be
would get another affair on bis band*.
Meu uever reuliy use their reasons
about women. Tbey think they do,
but they are under the Influence of
their feelings instead.
Trevor was au attractive fellow, aud
since be was to Miss Iddlestou a celebrated artist he bad only to say a few
honeyed words and look at her In a
melancholy, yearning way to achieve
a complete victory. Be was not fool
enough to give ber the letters be hnd
written to another woman; tbat affair
wns passed so far as any tender feel
ing was coueertied. Instead, he wrote
tetters to Miss Iddlestou direct. It
wasn't necessary for him to write ber,
for be could see her every day. but
she said she needed these letters In
her work, so be consented to write a
few for her. He intended to refrain
from commuting himself Iu nny of
them, but a mini's tetters tn a woman
may he Interpreted to mean more than
be Intends, and he Is apt to grow in'
cautions. Trevor hud been through
the mill before nnd ahould bave known
better. He did know belter. The
trouble wus nol In what be knew, but
what be did.
A very curious condition existed be
tween Mr. Trevor and Miss Iddlestou
Just before Iheir separation at the end
of the summer Mr. Trevor hnd treat
ed her as a spy and bad taken means
to outwit ber as such. She considered
him a famous artist nnd an honorable
man. whereas lie bad never achieved
anything remarkable and was hiding
from u wonmii be feared.
Then suddenly her eyes were opened
to the fact that be bad been entirety
mistaken ln tbe authoress. Some
friends came to see ber whom Trevor
met. and he became aware that she
wus au eminently respectable young
woman and very highly connected
Moreover, he discovered that he bad
been caught lu bis own trap and was
In love wllh her.
Whut wus he to dol Confess? Con
fess what? That be bad taken her
for a detective. Suppose be should
conceal this, his only reason for permitting her to remain under tbe Impression thnt he was a great artist.
And ln any event he must come down
from thnt high position and acknowledge himself simply as one wbo had
begun an attempt lo reform.
While be was debating what to do
Miss Iddleston tnld blm that her story
was completed and that sbe would like
to have his opinion of It. An Idea
struck Trevor. He told her that he
would take It to the city with blm,
read It and return it with his criticism.
He nlso Intimated that he would tben

Mr. Thomas Basset Macaulay was
born in Hamilton, and has spent all
his Hie in the insurance business.
He received his schooling In Hamilton and Montreal, and has been in
the service of the Sun Life Insurance
Company since 1877. In 1880, when
he was still hut 20 years ol age, he
became its actuary, and eleven years
later assumed the secretaryship. His
father, Robertson Macaulay, is a native of Scotland, ond, after serving
in the Canada Life and Ihe Mutual
Life Association of Canada for some
years, allied himself with the Bun
Life, of which he became secretary fn
1874 nnd manager two years later. So
that the Macaulays, father and son,
have been at tbe head of the concern
for many long yenrs. T. B. Macaulay became a director ol the concern
in 1808, nnd succeeded to the position
of managing director Ave years ago,
upon the retirement of nis lather
from thnt position.

United States delegates paid Canada
the compliment of asking that Canadians should be included with them

Australia's Town-Planning It a Model
For the World.
Adelaide is a practical example nl
the aiivantuge ol scientific city plan-
lung ou a large scale. The modern
architectural teaching that large city
centres may be judiciously planned
to become healthy and artistic abiding places for thfl olty dweller instead
ot depressing accumulations of bricks
and mortal where all aesthetic and
healthful ideals are sacrificed to inflated city lot values, may be observed in practical working iu Suulh Au.-
tralia's capital city, says The Evening
Standard. Adelaelc is not tu well
known tu visiters to Australia at it
should be, because it is lu some, extent
overshadowed hy the greater sine and
commercial Importance ol Sydney and
Melbourne, but it is, perhaps, the
most naturally attractive city in Australia, and thfl most scientifically
built. The lurcsight ol its original
founder, Col. Light, hat given ample
opportunities tu its past and present
municipal rulcts to carry out his intention cl making Adelaide u garden
city. Ool, Light planned a city ut
straight, wide streets, enciroled by
public parks. To-day Adelaide ls a
city ol breud straight streets and wide
footpaths, terminating in specious ornamental squares lu every block, and
completely surrounded by a wide bell
of park lauds, thu property of the
people ior all tune,
Adelaide's wealthier cltiiens have

city's gardens and plantations. Tha
mayor is, however, even prouder ol
the fact that the poorer residents who

spirit In this lorm, yet contrive to
help on the public adornment of Ado.
luide ill tiieir own way, "While our
city is adorned with parks, squares.
plantations, and gardens un every
side," he said, "yet visitors are invar.
luhly struck with the fact that the
cottages—many ol which are the property ol the worker who lives iu them
—as well as the larger residences in
thc metropolitan area, is surrounded
by handsome flower-beds." Adelaide's
public reserves total abuut 11,000 acres.
The city, Willi its stone public buildings and numerous fine churches—
throughout Australia Adelaide it
known as the "city of churches"—
wide, clean streets, and statue-dotted
squares, stands in the midst of its
parks. In the long summer evenings
thousands of tlie residents of the city
go to the parks by foot or tram. These
fiarks are also largely used ior ath-
etic recreative purposes. Last year
the City Council issued 221 permits
to athletic clubs to play cricket, football, hockey, gull, etc., on their wide,
level spaces.
Linked with the artistic development of the city is the equally important work ot scientific hygiene and
sanitation. This has received, and is
receiving, ita proper share of attention
in Adelaide. The city's sewage system
is practically perfect, and the street
cleaning scientifically carried out. The
City Council recently acquired 486
acrei of land abuut six miles from
the city, and on this site a quarter
ol a million Is to be expended on a
municipal abattoir. Municipal supervision also extends to a Food and
Drugs Act, and $90,000 has just been
expended by the council on the most
complete municipal baths in Australia. One ol the most important oi
recent works undertaken by the council Is the construction ot a retute
destructor and steam disinfectant at
a cost of 11,900,000. The dust nuisance
—perennial problem of all big cities—
ii not yet completely abolished, has
heen considerably mitigated by tar
paving and oil sprinkling. The latter method has proved so successful
that it is to be largely extended.
Adelaide is entirely without slums—a
unique feature in a city ol more than
200,000 Inhabitants. In its square mile
of city streets, Bet within the frame
oi parks, no patch oi hovel habitation,
overcrowded and squalid, is tc be
iound. Wide street succeeds wide
street, but the visitor comes across
none of the dirty, little slums that
disfigure other capital cities. The
population of Adelaide ln the metropolitan area is slightly over 200,000.
There are 06 miles of streets, in the
city proper, and it is doubtful whether finer roadways could be found
ln any part ol the world.

Crab Makes Its Own Wing,
There is a small crab 'ound upon
thc English coast thut is so alraid ol
his enemies that lie has iound out, or
has perhaps been taught, a clever way
to hide himself.
Ihe writer once saw one ol these
crabs which was kept as a pet, and
he was lucky enough to visit him
when he was in the very actol making
his wig. Thc crab first tore oil a piece
uf green, ribbonlike seaweed_ with his
pincers and put one end in his mouth.
Tliis he sucked and nibbled and
moistened with some kind of glue that
hardens under water, and then he
pressed the sticky end upon his back.
By and by his broad back was covered
with a regular green and waving wig
to that as he crawled about he looked
like a bunch of seaweed in gentle
tnc tion.
We must suppose that he makes a
very sweet mouthful lor a hungry fish,
and that he makes the wig to preserve
him from being gobbled up. From
time to time the wig required repairing, ol course.

England's Only Woman Publllhw
•ays Her Father, tht Engraver, and
Every Mtmbtr ol Her Family Wen
Engaged In the Work af Bringing
Out Rutkin't Book—Author Had a
Strange Sytttm c   Bookkttping.
Miss Maud Allan, the only woman
puolisher ill Kngland and a daughter
of George Allen, who was first the engraver for John Ruskin, and later the
publisher of his works, recently returned to London after a lecture tour
tu tliis country. She is a goddaughter
ol Mrs. Margaret Ruskin, the mother
ol the author, and she knew Joliu
Ruskin Irom her curliest childhood.
"I remember distinctly the day my
father returned Irom a visit to Denmark Hill, the Kuskn home, and told
niy mother that it had been decided
Unit he should publish 'Furs Clavi-
gera'," Miss Allen said to a reporter.
"Tlie name ol the firm was George
Allen A Co. All the publishing work
waa done lor years in our home. Each
and every member ot the family took
fiart in it, so yuu see I became a pub-.
isher's assistant while I was still iu
"Fortunately my.father waa a practical man. Had lie not been I don't
really know where the venture would
have led, because Mr. Ruskin had such
peculiar ideas about publishing. In
the first place he never ceased to re-
Eroach my father for taking the trou-
le to keep accounts.
"He wanted lather to have three
boxes, one box in which to keep the
pennies sent to cover the postage on
his books, another box lur the sixpences, and a third box ior the seven-
pences. That was to do away with
Keeping accounts.
"He insisted that there should be
no lree copies ior reviewers, no interviews or inlurmation given to the
newspapers, and no discount allowed
to booksellers. He said purchasers
should pay the bookseller tiie amount
they considered his services worth and
not have it added to tlie price oi the
book. It was uphill work publishing
for Ruskin.
"John Ruskin was adored by both
his mother and father, though the
latter did not always agree with his
political views. I nave three chairs
whioh formerly were used in* the
library ol Denmark Hill. While writing 'Modern Painters' Ruskin sat in
one oi them.* while hia parents used
the two others. They eat in the library while he was working, and when
he finished a chapter he would read it
to them lor their criticism.
"He was their only child, and
neither ol them was young when ha
was born. Mr. Ruskin, sr., was engaged to the lady who afterward became his wife nine years belore they
were married. He was working to pay
off his father's debts. He was in affluent circumstances when his sou
was born, and his wealth increased as
time went on.
"It was because he was reared in
affluent circumstances that so many
people contend that John Ruskin was
arrogant and dictatorial. In reality
he was quite the reverse. He waa
not only charming to grown people, hut he was beloved by all the
children who ever knew him. Hil
having had everything that money
could buy all his life made him a little difficult tor some persons to understand. I never heard of his riding in
a bus but once in his life. If he didn't have his own carriage he hired
"He didn't get tha love of his Hie,
however. He was in love with two
women, but never with his wile. In
1874 he told my fattier that while at
college, when he was less than Id, he
'became desperately in love with Adele
Clothlide Domecq, the daughter of his
lather's Spanish partner in the wine
business. He said she had led him
on, and when he finally proposed she
laughed at him and treated his love,
which to him was most serious, a matter for jest.
"My father told me that even at
that late date, 1874, Ruskin spoke of
her with bitterness, Baying her flippant treatment of him had affected his
whole life. She was a beautiful, vivacious girl, and nobody wondered lhat
he lost his heart to her, though it
would have been remarkable had aha
fancied such s serious young man as
he was at the time.
, "Thero was nothing romantic about
hla marriage except Its tragio ending.
He had not recovered irom his attack
of calf love when he met Euphemia
Chalmers Gray, a beautiful Scotch girl
and the daughter oi old irisnds ol his
Sarents. Both his lather and hla mo-
ter and mother were anxlons ior him
to marry her, so much so that hla
lather paid her lather's debts to tha
amount of 170,000. Their marriage waa
a marriage in name only.
"Mrs. John Ruskln's love affair with
Millsis began while the two Millais
brothers ware tn Scotland one summer
with the Ruskln's. Millais used Mrs.
Ruskin as hia model ior the wile in
his painting 'The Order for Release.'
It waa during this time that they fell
ln love with each other.
"Rose La Touohe, the girl who waa
really the love of John Ruskln's life,
wu born just one year alter Ruskin
waa married, though he never saw her
until lool. Bhe was the daughter of
an Irish banker, and I have heard
that her mother and lather were a
strikingly handsome couple. Ruskin
proposed to her, or rather spoke to her
parents, when she was sbout 17. Because of her youth her parents refused
their consent, but Rose promised to
wait ior him. He wore her promise
between two gold plates over his heart,
and always kept the date, Feb. 2, aa
a festival.
"His beat work waa inspired by her.
Some of the most beautiful and touching letters I have ever read were written to him by her. When she reached
ber twenty.fl.Mt birthday, which was
Iha date named by her parents as ths
end of Ruskin's probation, her hsalth
waa toe poor lor her to marry. Instead
of getting stronger she went into a
decline, and she died in 1875. Ruskin
as-far recovered Iron Uie shock."

If This Star Ware Our Sun It Wauld

Tbe parallax of a star Is Its angular
displacement as seeu from two o|t-
IKislte points ou tbe earth's orbit The
base liue employed tu Ibis glguuttc species of surveying Is 18O,O0U,UUO miles
In length, but the calculation ls reduced to tbe semldiameter of the orbit
Tbe results are at the same time aniai-
iug uud instructive.
Let us take the famous star Arc-
turns, often called the "star of Job"
because  lu   the  Old   Testament  tbe
Almighty Is represented aa saying to
the unfortunate patriarch, wbo maintains a certain dignity In spite of hia
helplessness and his sufferings, "Canst
thou cnll forth Arcturus and his sons?"
Many  coulllctlug  measures  of  the
parallax of Arcturua bave been mude,
but the latest made at Yale seem more
probably correct than tbeir predecessors.   They lix tbo parallax at 0.uua
j seconds—I, e., sixty-six one-thousandth
I of a second of arc.   From tbis It la
J easy to calculate tbe distance of tbe
I star,   lt comes out at nearly 290,000,-
000,000.000 miles (two  hundred aud
ninety trillion miles).   This Is more
thau 3.000,000 times the dlstauce ot
the earth from the sun.
Having this distance, we cnn calculate the actual amount of light sbed by
Arcturus, or, in otber words, Its actual brightness as compared witb that
of our sun, on the supposition that
both were at tbe same distance from
us. We thus find that Arcturus exceeds the sun as a light giver about
'',500 times! It la a sun 2,500 times
brighter thun ours.
Tut the earth aa near to Arcturus
as it Is lo the sun and all life would
disappear from Its surface as If swept
off by a blast ot Inconceivable heat
The summer temperature would rise
to tens of thousands of degrees. The
oceans would boll away. Vegetation
would be burned up In a twinkling.
Tbe eyes of living beings would char
in their sockets. Tbe plains and
mountains would bunt Into flame.
Minerals would run ln molten streams.
There would he no comfort tor a living world nearer to Arcturus tban
about 4,000,000.000 mllea. If be has
planets he must keep them nt a respectful distance. And yet nearly
300.000,000.000,000 miles from blm we

These results are aeeured by the use

and you will be surprised ut the healing which will take place overnight.

with internal medicines. You can see

I tried four doctors, giving each a fair
trial, but got no hotter. Iu fact, the

Because this ointment has made
