A young lady, one of Cranbrook's high school maidens, Inspired
hy the celebrations that the American citizens of the city were
holding, compared tbe same with the emptiness that pervaded tbe
city ot all festivities either on May 24th or July 1st., and on the
thought built up the following poem which we are plen>ed to give
to our many readers:—
Ob, miserable, unpatriotic town,
You know not the dull anguish which you bring
Unto the liory patriot wbo sees
Strange nation,! celebrate, not of our king.
Come people, sing aloud your Empire'* praise,
Awake tbe fiery dame of loyalty;
Let uot the foreign nations laugh at the*
And England say we care not what we be.
Fair Canada, our own Dominion dearl
Did Mother Nature e'er inteud to be
A land for people far from o'er the sea,
Who lacked a sense of that great loyalty?
Nay! Nay I Dame Nature sought out people true,
A people with a heart ol loyal song;
A nation that would praise that name, (air name,
And sing its Country's praises loud and long.
Awake, Proud Empire I Stand and sing with Joy,
Sing praises of the Nature land so dear,
And wake the Joyful echoes near and (ar,
With loyal songs of country, Home and Oheer.

I Tbe attention of the municipal

I Tho attention of the Board was

advisable if tbe proper arrangements
could he made (or them to be met
at Fort Steele or even at Wardner
and brought through to Cranbrook.
Undoubtedly by doing so Oranbrook
and Calgary would be better benefited because of coming into closer
personal touch wtth ita chief citizens. There could easily be a banquet or dinner and some sort of en-
ertalnment arranged, the results ot
which would mean much for tbe welfare ot both cities.

1 turned and walked around tbe boo*
levard of tbe court, my heart beating
wildly. I seemed to see a form arise
In a listening attitude from beneath
tbe arch of tbe ruined chapel. 1 paused
lo tbe shadow cast by the gardener's
tower and drew my revolver. Was It
realty a human creature wbo stood
there listening? U was tbe Lady In
Black. Tbe moon uuder tbe half ruined arch showed me tbut she was as
pale as death.
Suddenly 1 perceived a shadow beside tbe Ludy In Black, and I recognized Darzac. From ttie corner where
1 was 1 could now bear ull tbut tbey

of Edith aud her I'rluce Oalltch. 1
(bought ouly of Larsan. Why? Why
wus It on account of Lursuu that 1
beut my ears so anxiously to beur all
that weut ou between those two? 1
learned from their words that Matbllde
had descended Stealthily from lu Louve
to be alone lu the garden with ber
agony and that her husband had followed ber. Aud she took his hands
uud said to him:
"I kuow. dear-l know nil your grief.

accuse myself of being the cause of
your sorrow. Hut do not tell me tbat
I no longer love you on. I wlll love
you dearly, Uobert. Just us I huve always done.    I promise yuu."
Sbe pressed his band snd turned
away, casting upon Dim a smile so
sweet and yet so sorrowful that I
woDdered how this woman could apeak
to a mau of future happiness She
brushed past tue without seeing me.
Darzac remained standing lo the
same spot, looking after her Suddeu-

tbe gesture of defiance uud rupture I
dared lu say (o myself. "If be should

To tbe gesture of this man my mind
answered with (he cry. "Ibis la Larsan!"
I was white with terror, and when
I saw Darzac coming In tuy direction
I could uut refrain from a tnuvemeut
which reveuled my presence while I
wus trying tu conceal ll. He saw me
and recognized me. and. grasping m«
by the arm, he exclaimed:
"You were there. Saiuclalr-you were
watching. We are all watching, my
friend. And you heard what sbe suld.
Her grief is too great I can beur no
more. We would have been so happy.
She Imagines that she Is to be pursued by eternal punishment It waa
necessary for the frightful tragedy of
last nlgbt to prove to tne tbat this
woman did love me once. Yea. for one
moment ull ber fears were for me, and
I. alas, have blood on my hands only
because of ber. Now sbe bas returned
to ber old Indifference. She carea no
longer. Her only desire Is tbat tbe
old man shall be kept In Ignorance."
He sighed so sorrowfully and so sincerely tbat tbe abominable idea which
It bad harbored fled from my mind. 1
thought only of what be was saying
to me—of the sorrow of this man, who
seetned lo bave lost completely tbe
woman whom be loved lo tbe moment
wbeu tbe woman bud found a son of
whose existence the husband continued to be Ignorant. In fact, ba bad In
no way been able to understand tbe attitude of tbe Ludy In Hluck us regards
tbe facility witb wblcb sbe bud detached herself from bim. and be found
uo explanation for this cruel metamorphosis otber than the love heightened
by remorse of I'rofessor Stangerson'a
daughter for ber father.
Then tbe frightful fancy that he was
Lursuu ussalled me. and 1 demanded:
"How did it happen tbat tbe sack
was empty/"
He was not In the least taken aback.
He replied simply:
"Rouletabille must tell us that,"
Then be pressed my band and wandered a wuy througii tbe undergrowth
of the gurden. 1 looked ufter bim and
said to myself:
"I have gone mad!"
Now he was standing erect upon tbe
western boulevard, wblcb looked like
a pedestal beneath his feet. Tbe rays
of the moon enveloped him with a
cold and mournful light. Is It you,
Darzac. ur your Specter or tbe ghost

of dead? 1 speak as though lt were

He began to walk again. 1 was certain no longer- There ts something In
his walk wblcb is not Darzac's, something lu which 1 seem lo recognize
Larsan. but  whut?
He was QlinOSI upon me. He passed
by     He hud not seen tne

it was Lnrwinl"
Hut he paused for n second und

"ll is Dur/ac!"
And theu he nas gone, and I remained tin-re behind my hedge overwhelmed with me horror of the
thought which | huo dared to harbor.
I was still beneath the anh of the
gardener's iwsieni, and l was just
it Ihiii t to enter the Court of tbo Bold
when it seemed to tue thai I beard
something   moving,     it   sounded   as
though a door tulglll have been closed.
Then (here was a Round as of wood
striking on Iron. | thrust my head out
from under the arch, and I believed
that I could see the shadow of a person near the door of the new castle.
I snatched my revolver from tn.v pocket and with three steps was nt (be

could see nothing but darkness. The
door  of the castle   wun  closed,  and   I
was certain tlmt I bud left it open I
was disturbed and anxious I felt that
I wun not alone. Who. then, could be

I listened attentively for more than
five minutes without making tbe slight*

been mistaken. Hut nevertheless 1 did
uot even strike a match, hih! as silent

: most extraordinary entertainments at
i which he was ever present was in 1861.
1 First of all he and his fellow-guests
were taken upstairs to a room, in
; which forty or titty young ladies were
seated on sofas, and each guest was
. told to pick out two of these young
• ladies to pour out wine Ior him. He
! was new to the cu/^jin and to the
< people at that time, but he asked one
[ of his hosts to pick out two for him.
This wus done, and the two damsels
! trotted down and sat on each vide ol
1 him and poured out the wine. This
j particular entertainment began at Vi
o'clock in the middle ot the day, and
( ended   at   five   o'clock   the   tollowing

A Hudson Bay Pasture.
There has been appearing in one ot
the daily newspapers of Edmonton a
small-type, five-line advertisement,
which may be added to the hundred
and oue other indication nf the change
that has come over the Canadian
West in the past few years. The advertisement announces that the "Hudson Bay pasture is now open to receive stock; 800 acr^s in pnsturc, also
city water ami good fences."
There are men still in active life in
Canada, who cun recall the time when
the "Hudson Bay pasture" extended
from the Arctic Ocean to the International Boundary, and from the Lake
of the Woods to the Rooky Mountains.
The occupants of the pasture were
buffalo, upon a certain number of
which fell tho duty of paying the rent
by giving up their lives aud surrender-
Ing their hides und beef. Now the
Hudson Ilay pasture is a mere patch,
enclosed by a good Ience, like an Ontario farm, and supplied with city water, like a suburbanites lawn.
The West is changing so rapidly aud
so radically that it scarcely knows
itself from duy to day.

"the had EhtI Lonsdale," who died
bI Lowther Hall, in Westmorland, in
1802. According to a biographer,
"Jemmy was more detested than
any man alive, as a shameless political -harper, a domestic bashaw, and
an intolerable tyrant over his tenants
and dependents."
His ghost was said to career all
over the estate in a coach and aix.
To quote a chronicler. "The hall he-
came almost uninhabitable on account of the dead man's pranks, and
out of doors was, for a long time,
almost equally dreaded, as there was
constant danger of encountering the
miscreant ghost." The bad earl's
kinsman and successor, the first
Earl of Lonsdale of the present creation, lost no time in pulling down
the hall, ghost or no ghost. On the
site he built Lowther Castle, which
was finished In 1809.

When It comes to the table cover tbe
lop with a cupful of ih li creum.
To make fried apples wash and
wi|*e dry souie tart i-ouklug ape les,
cut ihem lu Slices a quarter of an Imb
thh k and fry them In butter until
tender nnd brown. Dredge wiih powdered sugar and serve piping hot uu
warm plates.
Caramel apples may he made ns follows: Into a skillet put one cupful of
light brown sugar aud one-half cupful
of hot water, Let boll for three o"
four minutes, tbeo drop tn five nl-e
cooking apples which bave Iteeti peel-

Wattsburg company   from occupying

I Plaintiff, Hilton ie to pay thc costs
of both claim and cotinter-clnlm. The
judgment ot Mr. Justice Murphy lollows:
"I am of opinion that the main
action should be dismissed. The
plaintiff agreed with the defendant's
foreman to allow bia house to bo
used as a cook house in consideration
of the defendant purchasing the supplies on hand. I think this arrangement was not brought to an end in
February and 1 accept the evidence of
the foreman that plaintiff did not
make the statement he swears he did
and upon -which he relies to terminate the contract he ahmittedly made.
I find ns a fact that the house had
been broken into nnd was open when
defendant's workmen returned In
March to resume operations. The
articles claimed for were probably
fltolen before thc meu so returned.
In nny event in the view I take of
thc case the defendants cannot be
held liable for their valuo ns no evidence was given showing tbey had
appropriated such articles. I think
the case falls also on the ground
tbat no damage was shown to have
been Buffered by thc plaintiff nnd thnt
the ense—no matter what view of the
evidence Is tnken—Is not one In whloli
nn Injunction could successfully lie
The defendant counter-claimed for
damages nrlsing out of the issunnce
of nn ex parte Injunction obtained
by the plaintiff. 1 hold nn injunction
should never been applied fnr and admittedly as obtained It prevented dc-
fendnnt's from using their own proporty and put an ond to their operations. The plaintiff must pay damages as arise from Its having been
issued, hut I do not think such damages can bo increnBcd by the act of
thc defendants. Under the cirenm-
stnnces I hold it wan reasonable tor
defendants to wait until the bearing
of the motion to dissolve, notico of
which wns given for the Nelson Assizes.
fin tho statement of counsel T hnve
to hold tlmt the plaintiff Is responsible fnr llio unfortunate adjournment of this motion for hearing nt
Cranbrook. I iln not think however
tlio defendants should have removed
tholr machinery.
There will bo n rofcroneo to the
Registrar to uncertain:
First. What quantity nl Umber,
fulling within the timber ngi-iuiient
hold by defendants and available lor
logging could hnvo been logged ofl
tho lot, which defendants Intended to
log, by the defendants between the
dnte when defendants finally abandoned the camp and the tlmo limit.
Warning: to Many
Acting under special instructions
from the Attorney Ceneral's office,
the provincial prosecutar at Vancouver, Mr. W. M. McKay, has just
successfully carried through the court
thoro proceedings under tbe Companies Act of 1910 against thc Steamboat Central Mines, Ltd., (Non-Personal Liability) which serve to demonstrate how far the present much
maligned Companies Act of British
Columbia In renlity goes in tho protection of the trustful investor, and
in the legitimate supervision of promotion literature upon which stock
subscriptions nre solicited. The case
iB the first of the kind to be presented to the courts, the information
having been laid under thnt section
of the act which specifically forbids
the issuance of any prospectus until
it has first been accepted by and tiled
with the Registrar of Joint Stock
Companies. The recent prosecution
may therefore be regarded as largely
in the nature of an object lesson in
nnd a demonstration of the law, tor
the instruction of the public and as
a warning to Compaay promoters
generally that strict compliance with
the law's provisions will henceforth
be insisted upon.
Mr. McKay, under his instructions
from headquarters, did not press for
more than nominal penalties In the
Steamboat company's case and the
defendnnt directors pleaded guilty
through ignorance of the law and escaped with minimum lines. It was
lurther explained by Mr. J. A. Harvey K. O, In their behalf that Charles 8. Wangamott, M. E., the original owner of thfl propeBtlcs
exploited and tbc principal member
ol the company's directorate, had
"skipped thc country;" while Maurice
E. Gilbert, M. E., the managing director, is at. present iu Eastern Canada, The three remaining members of
the board—Frank c. Stevenson, A.
E. Jacks and Alexander Smith, all i f
Vancouvei—urged that thoy hu I unwittingly offended, the prospectus
having lioen prepared and issued by
Wangamott: without their cognizance
The company, it may lie parcnthlii'il-
ly mentioned hnd been recently formed and duly registered with a cnpl-
talizatioa of $1,600,000, in .*! Oti
shares, to acquire by purchaso from
Mr. Wangamott, the Saddlo Heck,
Hadd.o Rock Bo. 3, nnd Kile No. :..
mineral clnlms on Red Hill Steamboat Mountain.
The prospectus issuod, .lllegedly by
Mr. Wnngamott contains numoioUB
statements ostensibly of fact which
have been challenged ns untruthful
Ud calculated to deceive the prospective purchaser of Btoek. This
did not, however, enter into the proceedings just taken, which were confined to the offence of insuing a prospectus not filed with tho roglstrar.
For this, exceedingly heavy peniil-
ties mny lie imposed; while the low
ns It now appears on the provincial
Statute book prescribes as woll that
every director of a compnny is per-
tonnlly liable for the contents of a
prospectus with which his name is
connected, nnd for compensation, it
such is c.lnimed to ull subscribers
for sbaroH In the full account of nny
loss or daiunge suffered by tbem in
consequence of misleading prospectus
For default, in the llling of tho pro-
spoctus with thc Rcgistrnr, the company and every person identified
therewith are liable to penalties of
t'iti per day from the date of the llrst
Issue of the unfiled prospectus, until
its filing with the prescribed provincial official.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier ia to sail homeward from London on the 2nd instant and Premier McBride, of British
Columbia on the 20th proximo. The
general impression prevails i;i the
best informed political circles that
in the event of the United States
Senate adopting tho reciprocity agreement—which there is small doubt
they will do—Sir Wilfrid will apply
for an immediate dissolution of the
House, and go to the country in late
August or early September. Should
the Senate by any chance reject the
treaty the Dominion session would
proceed to an early termination,
possibly in a defeat of the Laurier
ministry, on the floor of tho parliament, In the event of an election
being brought on shortly, it is ox-
pected that Hon. Mr. McBride will
tour Canada to deliver a number of
speeches in the Conservative interest
and against reciprocity.

Into slanders and calumnies and bias-

the Almighty, with full power to hav.*
done otherwise, so created humanity
that a child once born Into tlie world
can never die—he must live some-
where unceasingly—either in pain ur
iu pleasure. By what authority any
make these declarnti >us we have i.ever
Surely it is a gross slander upon a
God oi infinite Ju-t;ee, Wisdom, Love
and Power to claim thut He ever entrusted to poor, (alien, human parents the power to hring into existence
siii-bl:ghted and sin-disposed human
creatures such as we aee our race to
be, and then made the happiness ol
their eternity dependent upon a super
human resistance of tiie evils of their
environment and of their depraved
constitutions! This blasphemy ugitinst
the Holy Name i* common tu nearly
every cieed of Christendom.
Our Catholic friends tell us that by
Divine arrangement terrible purgatorial experiences await practieully
every member ol our race, in the hope
that, if rightly exercised thereby, after
centuries of torture, un eternity of
bliss will be gained. Is not this also
a blasphemy uguiust the Holy Name-
W'ho tun deny itf Who would not
shudder to huve such an awful crime
of evil design charged against himself
or against his earthly parents? Who
thut is begotten of the Holy {Spirit is
not pained even to think of such a
oharge being made against hia Heavenly Father, "tiie God of ull grace"?

the majority to the heart us It Bhould.

tiuti of the very humblest nf our race,
we have uulinly uud without protest

indursed it as our belief, either publicly or tacitly, that He would look
upon u holacatist of millions with uo
fire brigade fur their reKef. I* not
tliis blasphemy uf the Holy NumeP
la il uny wonder thut in early life
our childish heurts were filled with
fear rather than with love toward our
Creator and toward His Revelation,
the Bible? la it any wonder that it
required all kinds of fighting with
our coin mon sense to believe, us we
were taught we should, that God lovingly predestinated that ull the families of earth should suffer eternally
extept a saintly handful—because He
wus pleased to have it su! because He
fureurdunitd tiiat it must be so! he-
cause He made a great place called
hell before He made ttie earth, and
made it Urge enough to hold the entire human family' because He created rlre-proof demons iu Inflict tor

many of them left without an opportunity of hearing of the "only name

that He wisely and with devilish intention laid up fuel enough to last to

Lobsttr Fishery.
From Canso, N, 8., we learn that
with warmer weather lobster fisher*
men are having better luck than was
their lot in the early season. With
such a continuation of rough weather
as has prevailed since the opening ol
the season some were inclined to prophesy a p .or season. Indications point
to a smaller catch than last year, but
prices ure so high that fishermen will
realize equally as good returns on
the whole scusmi. The live lobster
shipments to Boston this season hav*
l uot been up to tiie average, the canneries have handled almost the total
\ catch.

Those who know the man and tha
system say that the letters Q. M. attached to the front of Bosworth's
name will eventually be moved around
to the rear aud be capitalised and enlarged into General Manager. However, thut is iu the future. At present the letters stand for George Morris, and are the front appendages of
the name Geurge Morris Bosworth,
vice-president of the Canadian Pacific
Rnilwny Co.
A while buck G. M. Bo?worth was
fourtu vice-president ul the C.P.K.,
but a year ago the numerals were
abolished, and he is now known as
vie --president, iu charge of the pas*
senger and freight business and ocean
steamship lines. At first sight that
looks like a big man's job, as it includes pretty nearly everything the
ordinary layman connects with t
transportation system. However, ths
C.P.K. is a big concern, and there are
still a few odd jobs which are attended to by others than G. M. Bosworth.
St*II, he tills a big place among tha
seventy-five thousand odd employes;
and, if rumors can be trusted, he is
destined to fill a still bigger place;
but more of thut anon. Bosworth

Apropos of Mr. Irving's interest tn
crime and criminals, i.n amusing
story is told. One duy he was on a
country walk wit' a friend, a very
nervous man. At a particularly
desolate spot Mr. Irving stopped
with the abrupt exclamation:
"Wouldn't this be an ideal place for
murder!" His companion made
some inarticulate noise that might
be taken  as dissent.
"Oh, but suppose I were to murder you now," Mr. Irving went on,
quite charmed with the idea, "it
would be almost impossible to trace
the crime back to nte." Calmly
ignoring the other's obvious objections, he went on very earnestly to
elaborate his wicked plans. He ex*
plained exactly how he would commit the crime, pointed out where he
would conceal the body, and finished
up b" showing 1 w easy it would
be for him to escape detection.
"Don't you agree with me?" he
asked, turning again to his companion. To his surprise he discovered
that he was alone. The other man
was disappearing over the far horizon as fast as nib legs could carry

Sir Walter Gilbey, who recently celebrated his eightieth birthday, has
probably done greater service to practical farming in England than any
other individual, a fact duly recognized when he was appointed president
of the Royal Agricultural Society of
England in 1890. Small holdings, the
rural housing question, fruit-growing,
flower culture, live stock breeding,
particularly in regard to horses, are a
few of the questions on which Sir
Walter is an authority. He is an all-
round sportsman, ana in his early
days devoted his leisure time to mountain-climbing. On one occasion he
was about to make an ascent ill Switzerland, when he thought he might
as well make some inquiries about
his guide. "Is he a thoroughly skillful
clluiDerr1" he asked bis hotetkeepcr.
"1 should say so," was Uie reply. "He

| He was born in Ogdensburg in the
i year 1856, and is therefore another ex-
j ample of our free trade policy with the
| United States in the matter of ex-
! changing railroad men. We have re-
I ceived from the States such men as
I Van Home, ..haughnessy, Hays, and
I Bosworth, and have given them J. J.
H.-i and a few others cf lesser calibre.
Bosworth's ftrrt job iu the railroad
business netted $25 per month. That
was away back in 1875, when he was
o. i boy with the Ogdensburg &
Lake Champlain Railroad. He moved
to Chicago as traffic freight agent ot
the National Despatch Line, and came
to the C.P.R. in 1882 as assistant general freight agent of the Ontario and
Quebec unes of the company. Two
years later he was appointed general
freight agent of lines east ot Fort
; V."ill:am. Then he became assistant
1 freight traffic manager, and in 1896
freight traffic manager of the whole
system. In 1901 he was appointed
fourth vice-president of the company,
and in 1910 he became vice-president.
Mr. Bosworth has done almost everything around a railroad except run an
engine, and could probably do that if
occasion demanded lt. He has been
on the pay-roll ot a railroad for over
thirty-six years', and knows exactly
how it feels tu hear the 7 o'clock whistle blow. He has been office boy,
olerk, passenger ageut, freight agent
and assistant to fifty-seven varieties
of bosses, but always kept moving up
nearer those initials of his. No doubt
he felt that those letters, G. M., in
front of his name looked lonesome
there, and decided early iu his career
tiiat he would huve a more symmetrical name if it read G. M. Bosworth,
G.M. It his motives could have beeu
analyzed there would have been found
an innate desire to put those initials
where they belonged, lt has beeu a
big job, but unless his butting eye
tails him he is apt to get there. His
long training, especially with the
C.P.R., has been invaluable to him,
The C.P.K. is not only a transcontinental road, but it is also a transoceanic steamship company, and Mr.
Bosworth has to keep his eye on the
Atlantic steamship boats, the unseen-
ger and freight business from Halifax
to Vancouver, aud tuke an occasional
look at the Pacific. Certainly a man
whose field runs from Liverpool to
Hong Kong has to have a lona arm
and a clear vision, and can't take all
