I now, however, fully anticipate
Ithat tho labor will he got tor less
I than we allowed, and the pipe will
certainly be cheaper than wo figured
I —those are the two principal Items iu
the work. As an additional check I
hnvo ascertained Irom your engineer,
Mr. I'nrker, the actual coat for which
ho Is doing trench work hero under
various conditions, uml have no hesitation In saying that ample allowance has been made lu the estimates
lo cover ull reasonable emergencies
that may be expected in this class of
work. There Is every possibility of a
good sum being saved out of the estimates, but In nny case tho coat will,
certainly not exceed the amount ol
thc by-law.
If we carry out these works by
"Day labor" I expect to secure tho
services of the two foremen who constructed the works at Vernon, and
nlso tho chief foreman from the Wet-
nsklwin works. As our resident engineer in charge I expect to put on
the man who was in charge at Wotos-
klwln, and who bIbo hnd experience
on tho works at Regina nnd Indian-
head. Those arc all thoroughly experienced men anil among the best
I know of In the country for work of
this kind. Such a combination would
assure the host clnss of work obtainable.
Yours faithfully,
For the John Qault Engineering Co.
A copy of this agreement is here
givon that everyone may see oxactly
what arrangements tho city have
made on the citizens' behalf.
Mr. Hnddin vcry emphatically stated that the work would he completed

The sewerage by-lnw was at this

was hoped that something could bo

During the course of the discussion,

Mere Hornier was al lln; back of tho

tiny taper. Her features were distorted with fear.
"Some one Ilrod off n pistol!" I said.
MWhat has happened?"
"I do not know,' site responded.
And nt thnt moment 1 heard some
one open tlie door of tho tower, and
I'ere Hornier stood on the threshold.
"Bernier!   What has happened?"
"Oh. nothing very serious, 1 am glad

"Darzac has come In. then?"
"Ue got here almost as soon as you

the shot was tired almost immediately after be entered his bedroom. You
cau guess tbat I had a pretty fright!
I rushed to the door. Darzuc opened
It himself. Happily uo oue was injured."
"Did Mme. Darzac go to her owu
room us soon as 1 left the tower?"
"At once. She heard M. Darzac wueo
be came lu and followed hlra directly
to their apartments. They went in
almost ut the sume moment."
"And Darzac— Is he still in his room?"
"Here he Is uow."
1 turned and suw Hobert Darzac.
Despite lbe gloom of (he place 1 Suw
tbat bis face was ghastly pale. Ue
made tue a sigu uud (heu said very
calmly and quietly:
"Listen, Salnclalr! Ueruler told you
about our little accident. It Ls uot

some one should speak of it to you.
Tbe others perhaps huve not heard tbe

1 pressed his band witb a force which
attested my sentiments toward bim. I
was persuaded that both De aud Beruier were concealing something from
us—something very grave.
Durzac re-entered bla room, and I
weut to nnd Rouletabllle iu tne sittiug
room of Old Bob.
But upon the threshold of the apartment I jostled aguiust the Lady In
Black and ber son, wbo were passing
out Tbey were both so silent and
wore an expression so unexpected to
me, who bad overheard tbeir exclamations of love aud Joy ouly a few moments before, that 1 stood before them
without saying a word or making a
movement. Tbe extremity which induced Mme. Darzuc to leave Bouleta-
biile so soon under sucb extruordiuary
circumstances as tbose which bad attended their reunion puzzled me greatly. Matbllde pressed a kiss upon tbe
lad's forehead and murmured "Good
nlgbt, my duriing," iu a voice so soft,
sc sweet aud at the same time so solemn tbut lt seemed to me tbat It must
resemble tbe leave taking of one wbo
was ubout to die. Uouletubllle without answering his mother took my arm
and led me out of the tower. He was
trembling like a leaf.
it was the Lady in Black herself
wbo closed the door of the square tower. 1 was sure that something strange
Was passing wlthiu tbose walls. Tbe
account of the pistol shot wblcb bad
been glveu me satlstled me not ut all.
We   were at  (hat  moment  not  far
from a window In which a light' was
still burning und which opened upou .
the sittiug room ot Old itob and sloped i
out upon the sen.   This window was
not closed, nnd it was this, doubtless,
Wblcb  hud permitted us to bear so
distinctly in spite of the thickness of
the walls of the tower tbe pistol shot ,
and the cry of agony that bad fol-
lowed It.    The storm was past, but
tho waters were uot yet appeased, and j
the waves broke ou the rocks of tbe
peninsula with a violence that would [
have rendered  the approach of any j
vessel Impossible.   The thought of a
vessel   crossed   my   mind,   because  1 |
believed for an instant tbut 1 could !
see the shadow of a vessel of some !
sort appearing or disappearing tn tbe
gloom.    Hut what could It be?
We stood there motionless for more '
tban tive minutes before we uearu a
slgh-a groan, deep as au expiration, I
like a moan ol agony; a heavy sob,
like the lust  breath ot a departing
soul—which   reached   our  ears  from
tbat window und brought tbe sweat
ot  terror to our  brows.    And  then ■
nothing more—nothing except tbe in* ■.
termlttent sobbings of tbe sea. 1
And suddenly the light in the win- '
dow went out.
My friend aod I grasped eacb other's
hand as If instinctively commanding
each other by tbis mute communication ,
to remain motionless and silent.   Some !
one was dying there in that towerl
Some  one   whom   tbey   hnd   hidden.
Why?   And who?   Some one who was
neither M.  Darzac nor Mme.  Darzac
hor Pere Bernier nor Mere Bernier nor ,
'-almost beyond tbe shadow of a doubt
—Old  Bob; some one wbo could not
bave been in tbe tower.
In a few moments we again beheld
Pero Beruier. And then we beard
something which climbed uuder tb*
arch of tbe gardener's postern, and
Pere Beruier reappeared witb tbe black
aud Bofily rolling form of a carriage
beside him. We could see that tt was
tbe little English cart, drawn by Toby,
Arthur Uance's pony.
Pere Bernier, reaching at length the
oubliette, raised again his race toward our windows and tben, still holding Toby by the bridle, came to ths
door of tbe square tower. Leaving tbe
little equipage before tbe door, be entered the tower. A few moments passed by, which seemed to us like hours,
particularly to Rouletabille, who was
seized with a tit of trembling which
shook his frame like a leaf.
Pere Bernier reuppenred. ne crossed the court aloue and returned to the
postern. A beautiful moon had arisen,
which stretched its radiance across the
court. The two persons who came out
of the tower and approached the carriage appeared so surprised that tbey
almost recoiled at what they saw. But
we could hear the Lady In Black rs*
peat lu low. Arm tones: "Courage, Uobert!   You must be brave uow!"
And Durzac replied In a voice which
froze my blood, "It is not courage
which 1 lack!" Ue was bending over
something which be dragged before
bim and then raised iu his arms as
though It were a heavy burden and
tried to slip under tbe long seut of (he
cart. Houletabille's teeth were chattering. To move this sack Darzac was
making tho greatest efforts. Leaning
against (he wall of the tower, the
Lady in Black watched bim without
offering any assistance. And suddenly, ut the moment that M. Darzac had
succeeded in loading the sack luto (he
curt, Mathilda pronounced these words
iu a voice shaken with horror;
"lt is moving!"
"It ls the end!" said Darzac, wiping
his forehead With bis pocket handkerchief. Then be took Toby by tbe bridle and started off. making a sign to
tbe Lady in Black, but she, still leaning against (be wall, as though she
had beeu placed there for some punishment, made uo signal in reply. Darzac seemed to us to be quite calm. His
figure straightened up; his step grew
firm. One might almost say that his
manner was tbat of au bouest man
who has done bis duty. Still, with the
greatest precaution, be disappeared
with his carriage at the posteru of tbe
gardener, and lbe Lady In Black went
back Into the square tower.

New Theory of Mule's Kick.
Prof. Wyndnam Cottle of the Royal
College of Surgeons, says that long
continued painful emotion in a mule,
such a» fear or anger, is translated
into actual, if temporary, paralysis.
In this announcement the professor
is publicly hacked up by Dr. R.
Cunyngham Brown of the Isle of
These two inves-tigatora, who are
prominent members (' the National
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
io Animals, assert that what is commonly considered as "cuasedness" in
a mule is simply a sort of cataleptic
state into which the poor animal has
fallen through fright or indigestion.
The beatt does not balk intentionally, and there is no m uce in the kick
it so often delivers when in this unfortunate and regretful condition.
Often the kick puts whoever gets in
the way into a state of paralysis or
Gentle treat*, ant, kind words, perhaps a hit nf sugar, are the best ways
for restoring a distracted and irresponsible mule to it* normal Btate.
"Sulking" animals, assert the two
learned investigators, are as a rule
not sulking at all, *~ut are merely
scared out of the voluntary use of
their muscles.
House Numbers.
Before the advent of the house
number, only business signs, coats of
arms, and house names marked the
different buildings. Then, in London.
for instance, one had to look for Mr.
Jones, should he desire to cnll upon
that man, in. sny "Whitechapel, not
far from the Blue Boar.'*
It is thought Berlin, in 1795, was
the flrst city to employ the numbering syatem. The German innovators
did not put odd number-* on one side
cf their streets and even numbers on
the other; they merely started from
the Brandenburg Gate and numbered
straight ahead, taking no account of
change of street.
As they proceeded, therefore, the
numbers grew higher, tiie height tn
which they attained being limited
only hy the supply of houses. The
first house they numbered was nam
ber one, the ln?t the number thnt he.
tokened the total numher of house*?
in the city.

fewer than the average number during the preceding 10 years. The mar

Mrs. R. Cotton, Golden, B.O., snys:
—"Ah a matter of duty I wish to say
a word in praise of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for what they have done
for my daughters, one id and the
other 18 years of age. Both were pale
nnd bloodless ami suffered from many
of the symptoms of anaemia. They
would tire easily, suffered from fre-
quent headaches, were ensily discouraged, ami often fretful. I saw in our
home paper the story of a young girl
who had similarly suffered and W'as
cured through the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I bought three
boxes of the Pills and my daughters
started to take them. Before they
were done they began to feel better
anil look better, and I got a half
dozen more boxes, und by the time

I lioodall.   lecturer   to   tbe   Middlesex
1 Hospital Medical School.   Hu declares
that wheu you enter a rixtaurant and
select a chocolate-colored food you un-
| consciously  show  yourself a man of
! taste and refinement; but if, on the
! contrary,   you   show   a   partiality   lor
| yoi low-colored   foods,   your   ta_to   i-j
i most probably low and vulgar,
Dr.    (ioodall,    iu    explaining    his
i strange theory, says tbat he first made
experiments   witb   animals.    "A   eat,
fol instance," lie suys, "is very much
. ii.ltueuced   by   the  color  uf  its  food.
' lu one experiment I placed a number
i of plegei  ol  meat, each  tinted a different color, before a cat.   The animal  looked  at  each  piece  carefully,
aud then selected the red colo el meat.
Dogs, on the other hand, do not appear   tit   use   their   visual   sense   lika
cats.    If the  food  smells ull  right a
dog will eat anything.
"Human beings are very sensitive
us to the color of their food. By
making Inquiries among caterers I
found that choeolate-colored foods
, were easily the most popular anion*

classes have a liking for yellow. One
of tlie reasons of this may he that they
think such foods are richer thun
Pink is by far Die most popular color with children.   If a child is offered

I    "Certain colors," he says, "atimu-

corps was founded by Lord Charles,
who lately decided to personally test
their ideas regarding scouting. Driving over the Portsmouth hills, where
the youngsters wero emjaged in manoeuvres, his motor-car was smartly
confronted by three youths, who exclaimed in chorus, "We take you prisoner, Lord Charles!" "Well, what are
you going to do with me, now that you
have got me?" inquired the distinguished captive. There was a brief
pause, after which one ol the lads replied, in a grave tone, "H'mJ Well,

Truth About Spnln:" "The steel screw
of a cargo steamer which traded with
Bilbao und other northern ports was

voyage. The vessel was beached pending the arrival uf a new propeller from
Hug hind.
"At last, when the steamer wus about
to sail, the captain was Informed tbat
he had to pay a duty for putting
ashore a manufactured urtlcle—namely, tbe 'scrapped' or broken propeller.
Tbe cnptaln protested und offered to
drop It Into the sen, but tbe officials
were obdurate. They seized tbe ship
and demanded payment. The captain
declined tu ease the tension by the
customary bribe and complained to tbe
British foreign office.
"Tbe duty waa returned, but tbe
captain was warned to be very careful
about contraband, and for several voyages nothing occurred. Several months
later some Blight Inaccuracy In the
ship's papers nnd tbe declaration of
cargo gave tbe excisemen tbeir chance.

Electricity Fails as Patient is
under Operation, but Nurses
Aids Successfully
Hartford, Conn., June 4—Believing
2 o'clock in the morning to be a good
time, the Willimantic Gas and Electric Co., shut down its plant this
morning to make repairs on %e dynamos, and that a patient at St.
Joseph's hospital is alive tonight is
due only to the steady nerves of two
surgeons. They worked fast and true
in the darkness, which was broken
only by the continuous lighting of
matches and the dull glow of two oil
lamps which an orderly detached
Irom waiting automobiles. The three
surgeons were summoned in baste
from a dinner at tho Hotel Garde in
this city and dashed away for Willimantic, thirty-one miles'distant, coon
after midnight. A delicate operation
for an internal construction had progressed to thc critical point when the
lights in thc building, Including the
powerful oporating rellectors, went
out and nurses lit matches in relays,
using up throe large boxes. Tho physician who was administering the
ether, noted the patient's pulse in
the dark and regulated the flow of
the anaesthetic in that way.
Tonight the patient is resting comfortably, and thore is no indication
of any serious complication aB the
result of the unusual conditions attending tbe operation.

To uy that Cranbrook district la
mineralized all over is merely repeat
lng a well worn platitude, for we
hear almost weekly of reports ot
fresh discoveries, and tbe development
of prospects into mines.
In no Part ot Canada is there so
large a trade per capita as in that
portion of the province known as
Bouth Bast Kootenay, aud Cranbrook
is the principal city in thla vast area
which includes a territory of over
7,0011 square miles.
The Canadian I'acilic Is the principal railway in this portion of the
province, with two branches, one to
the south, the other to the north, to
the mines and lumber mills of the Bt.
Mary's valley. The Canadian I'acilic
Is also building a branch line from a
point on the Crow's Nost line near
Calloway to Golden on the main line.
When this line ls completed lt will
open up a mineral district of largo
proportions, a vast agricultural
grazing country, with large areas of
forests, awaiting the coming of the
Iron horso to bring In supplies and
machinery for mills that will be erected here and then through the
Kootenay nnd Upper Columbln valleys.
'lie   valley    of   tho   Kootenay   Ib

river and mnde one of the finest river
f"'- s <n western Canada.
Thin nort'nn of East Kootenay Is
rapidly being opened up, and with the
advent of the Kootenay Central railway, which Is now under construe
tlon will become one of thc foremost
districts in British Columbia for ag-
rlculture and fruit growing. It has
large areas ot bench land Instead of
deep valleys as ls usually found at
the toot of mountain ranges. This
land is singularly free from rock and
is composed of rich nnd fertile soil,
with, in mnny cases a large growth
of fine timber. Water for Irrigation
is plentiful, and when needed, can be
brought on tho land from the many
Btreams nnd rivers that flow from the
The valley of the Kootenay Is remarkably free from extremes of heat
and cold. Summer heat Is moderate,
and winter mild. The snowfall is
light, and cattle and horses range
the year round.
''iood qualities of apples, cherries,
and smaller fruits can he, and are
being,' produced in abundance, also
potatoes, tomatoes and garden stuff.
Silver-lead, coal mining and lumbering are large and growing Industries in this district. Tbe largest
silver-lead producing mines on the
American continent are located ln
this district. The largest areas of
coal are also found fn East Kootenay, and the lumbering Industry takes
no second rank in the resources of
this district.
-ast Kootenay justifies the title of
a mineral district, inasmuch that 60
der cent, of the lead produced in this
province came from the mines of Bast
Kootenay. Silver, copper and gold
are found, and are being mined on a
commercial basis. Iron is found in
abundance, also zinc, with mica, asbestos, gypsum and other metals,
which are undeveloped, but which wlll
be drawn upon, as soon as the Kootenay Central railway ls completed.
Coal and coke are expanding Industries, (or railway extensions, increasing populations and manufacturing
industries demand even an increased
production of coal.
Practically all the mining which
has been done to date is confined
within a comparatively few miles
Irom the railways, and but a small
area, though prospected, and In many
cases developed Into mines, yet for
lack of transportation have not become shipping mines.
The Crow's Nost coal fields comprises an area of high and splendid
cooking quality of coal. This coal Ib
used not only by Canadian consumers but by American railways, since
lt excels ln quality the coal in the
western States to the south. The
coke produced at theBe mines is used
at the smelters and rellneries ||at
west Kootenay and in the smelters
and other works of Montana and
The lumbering industry of Bast
Kootenay is of equal Importance with
mining. Tbe vast forests of large
trees Is heing cut by some twenty
saw mills, each cutting from 29,000 to
200,000 feet dally. It will be many
years hefore the supply ls exhausted.
The mills of Bast Kootenay bave become the chiet source of supply for
the immense demand that has opened throughout the prairie provinces.
Oranbrook, with a population of
about 4,000 ls the chiet divisional
point on the Crow's Nest branch of
the Canadian Pacific railway. It is
the centre of a fine lumbering and
mining country, and Is the distributing point tor almost every mining
and lumbering camp ln the district,
as well as many of the smaller towns.
The clearing of the surrounding timber ls opening up a fine agricultural
country. Tbe city is equipped with
fine stores, three up-to-date newspapers, three hanks, churches, schools,
hospitals, a lino electric light and
telephone system, a 24-hour power
service, and a fine gravity water
supply, ample for a city of 25,000,
with a pressure of 100 tbs. per Inch.
A number of mines are connected
with ths city by a branch railway.

Abundant  Water
One of the greatest essential* to n
town's development is an adequate
water supply.
Nokomis is noted for its pure water
which is supplied by numerous arte
slan wells, Good water is Invariably
obtained by going down Irom one
hundred to one hundred and twenty-
five feet, the watcr rising to within
fifteen or twenty feet of the surface,
and it is this abundant supply of
good water that is more than ltl'.ely
to cause both the Conmlian PA.iflc
and the Canadian Northern railways
to establish Nokomis as a divisional
Canadian Pacific Station and Prain Elevators at Nokomis
Nokomis Likely to b* a Divisional Point on Two Railways
It Is claimed that the Canadian Pacific has expended over $40,000 at Strassburg; thirty-two miles
south of Nokomis, ln 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 Strassburg, and
It is being rumored that the Cauadlan Pacific probably will make Nokomis a divisional point on its
Pheasant Hills line.
The extension of the Canadian Northern through Nokomis will assure the future of this rapidly grow
ing new town as one ot the important distributing points in Western Canada. It is not only possible, but
very probable that Nokomis will also bo a divisional point o. the Canadian Northern. Tho Canadian
Northern must have a divisional point at or near Nokomis and as an abundant supply ol pure water at a
divisional point ls essential, It is believed that Nokomis' advantages iu tbis respect will not be overlooked.
Modern Educational
Nokomis points with
pride to its public school
building erected last year
at a cost of $12,
000, and conceded to be
one of the finest in the
province. It Is built of
brick, with stone trimmings on an ideal site,
commanding a good view
of the town and surround-
Ing country. There are
four large, airy class
rooms, gymnasium and
recitation rooms, principal's room and library
The equipment Is complete
and in keeping with the
building. Recently a well
'elected library was purchased for the use ot the
pupils. The playgrounds
are large and well laid
ofl, and lt is the intention
of the school board this
coming summer to plant
suitable trees and shrubs
Where and what Nokomis Is
Social Life, Nokomis
Nokomis offers every inducement to the farmer
ind business man, owing
to its attractive surroundings and .social advantages. A large rlnk Ih
maintained in which hockey and curling matches
ire held. Baseball, football and tennis are among
the favorite summer
Nokomis has four fraternal societies, the Foresters, Odd Fellows, Tem-
plars and Orangemen. A
literary society has been
recently organized under
the auspices of the Church
of England.
There are five church
congregations in Nakomis,
the Methodist, German
Baptist. Presbyterian, Roman Catholic and Anglican.
Last Mountain Lake is
but 12 miles south of Nokomis. During the summer season this is a favorite pleasure resort, their
being an abundance of
wbitetlsb, pickerel and
pike in thc lake. This
lake is navigable for
about sixty miles and a
modern steamboat Is run
regularly between Water-
town and Lumsden, touching at several other
Nokomis is situated midway between Winnipeg and Kdmonton, in the center of the
Province of Saskatchewan. Nokomis is in the heart of Saskatchewan's renowned wheat
districi—the Last Mountain Valley.
The future of Nokomis as an important Railway Centre is assured by two Transcontinental Railways—the Grand Trunk faciric and the Canadian Pacific. Another Transcontinental, the Canadian Northern Railway, is to extend its Hue through Nokomis. Five
large implement warehouses, a Hour mill, and the Imperial Oil Co. now use Nokomis as a
distributing point. The lead taken by these institutions is about to be followed by others
of similar importance, and in a short time it is expected that the railway yards will be
hedged in by warehouses and mercantile establishments, 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 command a lurge part of the jobbing
trade for a considerable distance up and down the main lino of \im Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway, aud the two important branch lines which will centre there. Its shipping facilities
make it an especially advantageous location for manufacturers, tt has been demonstrated
that an abundance of Water for factory use is obtainable.
Backed by a rich agricultural district, an important railway centre, a distributing
centre and destined to become a 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 in real estate there at present prices. When population doubles
real estate values quadruple.   Today is the time to buy lots in Nokomis.

The ApoHtlea wero to bear witness
to thc resurrcotton of Jesus; but Judas having lost his place., mid It having been given to St. Paul, it was
proper that, the latter, as well as the
rest nf the Apostles, should Im able
to hear wltnoss to Jesus' resurrootion.
Recounting those who had seen the
Lurd after His resurrection, iu some
of the various manifestations, St,
I'aul saya, "Last of all lie was seen
of mc also, as one born before the
Jesus appeared  tn St.   Paul  in the
florimis brightness of His Spirit He-
ng, "shining above the brightness ul
thc sun at noonday." The sight caused
injury to the eyes of tha beholder.
Buch a manifestation would have boen
inappropriate and unsatisfactory had
the Redeemer su appeared to the eleven during the forty days. Mow could
they have Monti Aud the glorious Per*
son age, wtio shone abovu the brightness of thn sun at noonday, as the
Lord Jesus, whom th-'y had known
for years. How could Ihey have boen
enabled to fully identify Him, in His
many different appearances, with His
former self -their Friend, their Teach*
er? But to Saul of Tarsus, the revealing iu licry lignt, above the noonday
glare, was very appropriate, It convinced him, in a manner that no hu*
'ihe error of supposing that Jesus ;_
still a man .iglilU.H thu denial ui His
wild, that lie would ascend up where
Ho was before, and the denial of the
Apostle's teaching that He has been
highly exalted to glory and distinction, the divine nature, as instead ol
human nature. This error, iiu- Pastor
declared, had led tu other errors, one
ul which "*-' cited, namely, the error
mad-' by many Christian people of
expecting the Becond coming of Jesus
iu the flesh—us a glorious man and
not as a glorious Spirit, Partaker ol
the divine nature, and entirely di_-
associated frum human nature,
Thinking ol the Lord at HU second
ailve.it a-- u glorified man, they associate Him with a material throne and
an earthy court. This, iu I urn, leads
other Christian people in an opposite
direction, l.eahzing that such an
earthly kingd >m would be u step backward rather tnan ti step forward, they
.deny the second c- ruing of Messiah
to establish thu Kingdom io long
Thc proper thought is that Jesus, in
th_ flesh, acpumplished the work
which the Father had given Him to
do, when He s icrillceu His earthly
life. The Father gloriously rewarded
Him on the ..p.rit plane. Now He is

Tennyson's Love For Birds. .
Alfred Tennyson was all bla life S
great lover of the woods and fields. ;
Trees, birds ond flowers were bla er* \
erf day companions, and he faithfully
studied tbe habits of Dame Nature'!
English nurslings. Tbe lurk, tbe nlgbt- |
lngale, tbe owl and the linnet were bit
favorite birds.   He was also greatly tn- \
terested lu the sen birds,* tbe peregrine
of the realm, and a remarkable man
in a unique job. He was in charge
oi the funeral of Queen Victoria, and,
twu years later, he officiated as director of the Peacemaker's coronation.
Nine years afterward it was his duty
to bury the dead King in sitting pouip
and ceremony, and tu announce to
Britain tiie accession of her new monarch. Now he is ut the end of a year
of untold activity, in which he has
completed the arrangements for the
mo t magnificent ceremonial iu the
history of Britain.
The Duke of Norfolk is a member
oi one of the oldest noble families in
Kngland, and is tiie lay head oi the
Roman Catholics in the United Kingdom. Ho is the fifteenth duke in a
house that wu? created in the fifteenth
century, and his ancestors have played important roles in history. He is
rich beyond the Imaginings of ayario
und enjoys the rentals from nearly
fifty thousand acres oi land. He ha.*
one city and three country houses,
and for all the fact that he has everything hu can ask, he is oue of tin-
most active public men iu Kngland.
Henry Fit/.A Ian-Howard is 64 years
old, and became duke at the age uf
JJ. He haa represented Kngland at
the Vatican, has been mayor and
Lord Mayor of Sheffield, and Posl-
master-General in the Conservative
Cabinet. He served in the Boer War
with honor, and since that time has
lived the life of an agricultural country gentleman—except when emergencies ut court demanded his presence.

Issued instruction, regarding thc robes
to be worn by peers and peeresses
They are to be ol crimson velvet, and
th. capea are to be powdered with
bars similar to the "powdering" on
t..: capes ot peers. By the depth of
'he edginc of tur on the mantle the
degree of the wearer it indicated. A
baroness, ior instance, wears an edging of two inches of fur, a viscountess also has two inches, a countess
three inches, a marchioness 4 inches,
ind n duchess five inches.
The length of a peeress's train upon
the ground—yet another sign of de-
jree—is prescribed by the Karl Marshal as follows: Baroness, une yard;
i/lscnuntess, 1 1 4 yard; countess, I 1*2
cards; marchioness, 13-4 yards; and
i duchess, two yards.
The order concerning peers Is as
follows: That trie robe or Mantle be of
.rimson velvet, edged with miniver,
'in? cape furred with miniver pure,
ind powdered with bars or rows of
ermine (i.e.. narrow pieces of black
•iur). according to their degree, vii.:
Barons, two rows; viscounts, two rows
tnd a half; earls, three rows; mar*
■ueases. three rows and a half; dukes,

Still In Harness.
Threatened men live long. In his
early days, when he announced his in.
tention of becoming a minister of the
Gospel, that wonderful old man, General Booth, who, at the age of eighty,
two, is still in harness, forming
schemes for the reformation of the
world's outcasts, was told by the doctor that "it would be sheer suicide.
You would be dead In a year," Baid
the physician. But young Booth would
not be deterred. He weut ahead with
his ideas, and, although he was the
sole support of his mother, found time
to conduct evangelistic meetings in
the slum d'stricta after b sines- hours.
And when he married he and his wife
separated from any recognized body
and went out to catch their converts
from public-houses and gambling
Friends were found who sympathiz-,
ed, and one invested a small capital—
about $26,000—in William Booth's interest. It is from the Income this
sum brings in that tbe general has
brought up his family, and at present
his only personal moneys are derived
from the same source. He does not
draw a single penny from the funds
of the army, merely receiving his traveling expenpes from that source. The
original capital returns to the friend
who invested it on the general's death.

the captnin tells an amusing Eskimo
story. Having lost several dops, Cap.

intimated his desire to purchase one

however, the request was promptly

Alberta Bull Retains Her Ranching
Alberts U a greater cattle country
now titan it ever was in the old ranch*
iug duys. Surprising though it muy
se em, tins statement is bunw uut by
■sii-iinn:.** which show tlmt the province lust year exported uiury hwi
inun iu any previous year iu iu history.
Once upon a time all that Alberta
hud in tin- wuy ut industries wus the
fur trude. Then tlie country became
thu tneooa ot cuttle uud horse ruueh-
ers, Anally the ranchers were crowded
out iu must purls und the cry wus
raised thut the raiichiiiti industry wus
lu 100U the ranchers of the province hold oil tholr surplus stock and
u generu. O.GtttVUp wus observed
throughout the cattle couutry. Meu
with greut herds uf cattle sold almost
every hoof; othor men with just as
big ruuehes cut down the number uf
their herds su as to be able tu run
them un tiieir restricted runges.
The homesteader had cume in and
taken up the ranch country, he had
broken tne ground and planted wheat,
he had bruught a few cows. The big
ranchers declared the cuttle industry
wus deud, the range wus gone, thc
herds were gone, and the cattle could
not be raised, In Iihh. the runehcra
mude their big sale, 114,000 head In
all. The rancues were swept uleun uf
almost everything suleable.
The two follow.ng yeurs the cuttle
shipments were low, Ud.000 iu HMW aud
80,000 head in 1007. Then nunc 1900
when the homesteaders began tu have
something to turn off themselves. The
total of the cattle shipments of that
year was 127,000 head, mure than the
big year wheu the ranges were cleaned
IP to 1906. Uut the increase did not
stop in 1900. The small farmers' output was increasing and iu 1010 the
total number of beef cuttle sold in
the province of Alberta was lW.OOO
It is declared by those who thor*
oughly understand the cattle business
that it is but now in ita infancy.
There will come a time uot far distant
when Alberta will be supplying hundreds of thousands of head of beet to
the markets of the world, an even
better grade than those thut were fattened on the ranges by the big ranch*
era. In the old days a beef steer was
allowed to range until fut. In the
full he waa in good shape and was
turned off for sale. There was no grain
feeding. Even the spring cattle that
were sold were fattened simply on
hay.   But Alberta beef, with its sim*
Ele method of improvement, was good
eef and was desired on the markets.
Now a great deal of the cattle that
are sold are from small fanners, men
with tive or ten or fifteen head to
sell in a year. These animals are
fed the winter around, they are taken
up aud grain fed for market, the
grade of Alberta beef is going up. It
has been proven that the small farmers are bringing mure wealth to Alberta than the big cattle ranches, and
the cattle industry, at one time four
or five years ago pessimistically declared to be dead, has proven to be
simply in an infant state of development with every prospect of becoming
one of the greatest industries of the
province, second only to the raising
of grain.
The official figures for the live stock
shipments and sales of Alberta since
1906 are:—
1905-Cattle, 83,000; horses, 12,000;
sheep, 40,000; hogs, 24,000; export beef,

excellent features of the Boy Scout's

surprised when he appeared at the
breakfast table with a piece of white
string tied around one of his coat
"What's that for, Harold?" she
"To remind me to do a kind act
to-day," he roplied briefly.
Harold returned nt noon without
the white string adornment. He was
somewhat reserved during the early
moments of the meal. But when
des.-crt appeared he became communicative.
"Well, I've done my kind act—
helped an old man across the street,"
he informed the family. "And I've
kept from vulvar slnng all morning.
But after four I'm going to knock the
tar out of Billy Gordon for calling
me 'goody.' "—-Courier.

Mr. Walter Allward Has Had an Interesting Career.
nto man of hii age in the Dominion
has had u more Interesting oareer
than Mr. Walter Allward, ol Toronto,
the foremost sculptor ol English-
speaking Canada. He wai born in
that city i.i June, 1-75. and with a
public school education began to
study architecture at the age of fourteen. But carving and elay modeling
came natnrul to him, and were his
chief hobbies. H- htayed four years
in the architect's office, and then began his work of seu'pture in earnest
At thnt time he coula not even study
this art in a school, arid, as a profession, it seemed tn offur small prospects. Mr. A11 war*!, however, went
on with his work undlscouraged. He
couldn't go BW8V to study—he hail to
earn a living. So he made busts and
sold them and studied assiduously all
the time, getting all the light possible
on th- methods of such French sculptors os Fremlet and Paul DuboU.
His first larffO work of note was the
Northwest Rebellion monument in
Queen's Park, Toronto. Then he
nroduoed th" ftntuea of Governor
Btmooe and Sir Oliver Mowat. After
his marriage, Mr. Allward ipent
some time in Europe, and since then
he has been constantly employed on
hiri.fr and more Important works.
Chief among these, probably, is hi*
'mpressiw inmori-il to t.i« Canadian
herons of the South African war.
which stands in University avenue,
Toronto. Among his other now tiun-
0U8 outside statues are the John
Bund field Macdonald monument in
Queen's Park. Toronto; the Nicholas
Flood Dftvin memorial, iu Beech wood
Cemetery, Ottawa j '.he Baldwin-La-
fontaine group on Parliament Hill,
Ottawa, and the memorial to Dr. Bell,
inventor of the telephone, at Brunt-
ford, Ont.
Mr. A1!ward's studio ts on Walker
avenue, Toronto. When he begins a
statue he first records his inspiration
in a small figure of dark green wax.
Then he makes another with more
detail, in either wax or clay. If the
design is to be submitted for approval
still another figure is made—in tne
case of a single statue-—nf one-third
or one-half life size. If tlie work is
a group a enst in plaster of -Paris is
arranged in the shape of a complete
model. Weeks and months are spent
in this preliminary work. Then, if
his life models have been satisfactory, the monument is commenced
"in large." This is done in wax on a
large skeleton of iron and wood.
Then it is boxed up and sent to the
United States to be cast in bronze.
There are no bronze-costing works in
Canada able to do such work. He goes
down to Providence, R.I., to inspect
the casting. Then from Mr. Allwnrd's
blue prints the contractor builds the
foundation and erects the monument.
All Mr. Allward's work is marked
by deep human feeling, as well as
remarkable artistic skill. Personally
he is one of the most gentle and
modest of men, large success in
youth having spoiled him in no par*
A very good story is told of Mr.
Allward and an Irishman, who wu_
one of his models a few years ago.
The latter was a magnificent specimen of physical manhood, but he suf.
fered from rheumatism and talked
about his malady constantly. One
day Mr. Allward was taking a cast of
the man's neck, but either he or his
assistant overlooked putting on the
customary cout of grease. On attempting to remove the plaster it wns
found that it had apparently hardened there to stay. So they fell to with
knives and other irstiuments and
hammered and cut it away. The
Irishman lost some hair and had
quite an experience.
Some  time  after  the model  disap-
fieared, and Mr. Allward did not see
dm for many a day. Then ho met
him and asked him if he remembered
the cast incident.
"Ren-limber it!" said the Irishman.
"Faith, how should I be forgettin' it?
An' would ve believe it, Mr. Allward,
I've niver nod a touch of the rheumatics from that day to this."
It had been cast out, so to speak.
Chickens can now he plucked by
means of a apeeiul electric fun. But
the old-fashioned fan is still good
enough to pluck the umpire.

A Mack Parliament.
'the page boys of Parliament are fea-
Iur's of tlie institution. Kecently they
held a "mock" session, and it was
highly funny. One diminutive chap
occupied the Premier's seat and made
a speed] about the great and glorious
suggestions he was going to make at
tlie coming Imperial Conference. As
Canada curtly stated she hud no suggestions to offer, the irony of the lit-
tie fellow with his praise of the "allied route," the "all-British cable,"
and the like of that, was clever, ln
Hr. Borden's seat was another midget
who imitated thc somewhat ponderous
style of the Opposition leader with
great fidelity. "1 would like to ask
the right lion, gentleman," said this
little mummer, "if it is the intention
of the Government to push the reciprocity proposals. In this particular
regard 1 muy say that there ia no one
un this side oi tne House who is more
anxious to see this pact ratified than
i am."
But the climax came when some
one who was for the time being, the
Minister of Labor, rose and said: "Mr.
Speaker. 1 think a few practical observations on this interesting subject
would be timely."

thut while iu the south of Kngland the

may go to tbe country at once, and I When Sir Wilfrid Laurier was ln
many things being done at Ottawa' the wcHt ho Invited the grain growers
Indicate that these indications are to come to Ottawa and help the
something more than blulls. The Trade and Commerce department
prlntora   at the    government bureau I draft a bill to their liking respecting
the ownership and operation of terminal grain elevators at Fort William and Port Arthur. The grain
growers came and „ committee selected by thorn labored tor Home time
with Hir Klchard Unrtwright. A bill
wns tinnlly drawn nut entirely to
their liking hut which did provide for
the appointment of a commission to
Huporviso the working of the elevators
and power was taken for the government on the recommendation of this
commission to tuke over the elevators and operate them as public utilities. This hill was introduced iu
tho Senate, sent, to committee nnd
seriously amended. In Its present
shape It certainly falls far short of
what tbe western farmers demunded
and are demanding. Yet even this
weak attempt at redressing a grievance could not be pllt through Parliament by the Lnurler government.
It was only brought to the attent on
of the bouse upon the morning of the
day for adjournment and after a
brief discussion was luld over.
Nothing has heen even attempted
respecting government abattoirs or
any otber legislative device to
help the chilled meat industry. A resolution asking that something he
done, introduced by Dr. Sproule (east
Grey) was voted down by tho government,
When Sir Wilfrid Laurier wns in Alberta he assured the peoplo that this
subject should be dealt with as soon
as parliament assembled. At one
time when he stopped on his tour between Lldydtnlnster and Edmonton
he announced dramatically that he
had sent a telegram to Hon. Sidney
Fisher, the minister of Agriculture,
at Ottawa, directing him to frame a
policy on this subject at. once. The
Prime Minister did not toll his Alberta audience that Mr. Fisher was
1.1 Europe, and Judging from Mr.
Fisher's inactivity, tho telegram has
never heen delivered.
Nothing has heen done to help tho
[>acklng industry ln the west; on tbe
contrary the government ls attempting by the reciprocity agreement, to
further strengthen and build up the
Chicago Beef Trust.
It now seems to he generally understood that Parliament will he
prorogued shortly after It reassembles
in July. Thus all the pressing questions urged upon the government by
the Canadian west will go o/er indefinitely. There is every reason to
believe that Mr. R. h. Borden, upon
his western tour will meet all these
questions more squarely and moro
satisfactorily. Certain it is that the
tour of the Prime ministor bas not
resulted in the government taking
any decided atand. There seems little
prospect of ft doing so. The western
Conservative members will bave a
strong case when they go back to
their constituents before re-election.
are working overtime on tho voter's
lints and large expenditures aro sot
on foot in various parts of tho country indicates a fear ou the part of
the government that tbey may soon
have to face the electorate. Tenders
havo at last been called for the construction of tbe llrst section of tho
Hudson Bay railway, although parliament have only been askod to voto
two million dollars. At this rate of
progress Mr. Dako, Qu'Appolle, Sask.
estimatos that twenty years will be
required to complete the rond. The
Saskatchewan river waterway from
Edmonton to Lake Winnipeg Is again
revived and a survoy party has heen
sent out to Impress the western people with the activity of the government. Finally, in Eastern Ontario,
predictions are being made tbat work
wlll be commenced at once on tho
Georgian Bay canal.
While It Is aa well for the opposition to be on Its guard there Is no
necessity for lt being stampeded and
election may come at almost any
time hut few hero believe that it will
come much before 1912. Thore Ib no
necessity for burrled-up conventions
or belter skelter organizations. It is
In the highest degree unlikely the
possibility of an election will be considered by the government until after
redistribution. No party would dare
to condemn tbe western poople to under representation in the next parliament. Tbe census will show tbat tbo
country west of Lake Superior is entitled to thirty more seats ln the
House of Commons. To bring on an
election before redistribution would
he to leave some one million people
in western Canada without adequate
representation in the Dominion parliament. The redistribution bill cannot be drafted until alter the census
figures are known and it can hardly
be presented to the Hoase until some
time In September. If any jerrymander Is attempted there will be a stubborn fight and lt will be remembered
that lt took tive months to get a redistribution bill through parliament
after the census of 1891.
There are many who believe that
the fag end of the present session will
not last long after July 18th, hut
that redistribution and reciprocity
will go over together until tho next
regular session In November. Of
course, should the U. S. senate reject
lie reciprocity agreement, which now
seems not at all Impossible, the reciprocity Question will disappear from
Canadian politics. But even should
the assent of the United States he
given in June or July of this year
there can be no serious objection to
the Dominion government reserving
it for final disposition next winter.
In a word. Conservatives should
be on guard against any surprise because an election might be sprung almost at any time. On tbe other hand
they should not be stampeded hy any
rumors flying about, because no one
knows or can possibly know at this
time just when the elections will be
The six months put ln by parliament from November to May were
six months pretty nearly wasted ao
far as legislation is concerned. The
government put through no measur
to which there was any party opposition. The aubslty ot the Canadian
Northern railway had friends on both
sides of the House and the Bill passed without division. A number of
private billB were passed incorporating companies, granting divorces, etc.
But it would be hard to point out a
single measure of public importance
passed in the public interest. Indeed
the Government showed no disposition to push government husiness; it
oven presented reciprocity in a nerveless, listless way which left one in
doubt as to wliether they really
wanted it to pass. A number of set
speeches were made but there waa no
attempt on the part of the government to force a vote. Night after
night the House adjourned at ten or
half paBt and the debate was allowed
to drag on with an average ot two or
three speeches a day.
Mr. Fielding made no attempt to
press his bill for the revision of tbe
Bank Act; although members on both
sides of the House were anxious to
take up this important piece of legislation. The failure of the Farmer's

Insurance for the Coronation
A postponement of the coronation
would mean a heavy loss to many
manufacturers and shopkeepers. Innumerable warehouses, particularly city
warehouses, aro filled with goods, a
great part of which would become
practically valueless if the coronation)
did not tako place on the appointed
dato. But it is possible to insure
against such calamities, and this
leculiur sort of Insurance is, underwriters say, being taken advantage of
this year more than ever.
They are asking n 20 per cent, premium, so that for every $100 handed
over now to the underwriters at
Lloyd's $f)00 will be recovered If the
coronation Is put off.
Must people know that King Kdward was heavily insured by tradespeople and commercial men. Even before the public learned how grave tils
last illness was the insurance premium had jumped to thirty per cent.
When ho died, over a million changed
hands. Not only Lloyd's but some
50 Insurance companies were interested, though there are a few firms that
refuse this sort of business.
But thn insurance people were not
so heavily hit as one might suppose,
for most of the policies on King Edward's life had been taken out when
he was very young, and was the Uuko
(if Cornwall—largely by tenants of
the Duchy with copyhold leases, or
leases that expire when the person
named in them died. So that the insurance firms had already received
more in premiums than they had to
pay out.
It is for a similar reason tbat the
young Prince of Wales, being Duke of
Cornwall, fs already heavily insured
ln the districts forming the Duchy.
Uut neither King Edward nor King
George nor the young Prince of Wales
has ever had so much money hanging
m his life as had Queen Victoria.
This sort of insurance was unheard of
till her accession, but she looked so
delicate that it soon became popular.
The insurance companies demanded—
as they have always done since in
the case of royalties—a premium
about half as large again as an ordinary case, owing to the fact that
they could not, of course, have ber
examined by their medical officers.
Owing to the length of her reign tbey
only recovered in the end about a
third of what tbey had paid In premiums.
When the Insurance companies have
taken as much as they care for they
pass the overflow on to Lloyd's. And
tt is Lloyd's that do all the coronation insurance. It Is all done in that
famous long, low room known all
over the world as "The Room.''
There   is   a  line    of    pews    called
boxes," down either side, each pew
containing a narrow writing table.
In each sits an underwriter and his
clerks. An Insurance broker's clerk
walks around the room. His firm
may have bad a commission to insure against the postponement of the
Coronation for say $25,000 at 20 per
cent. He stops at one table and
iwb the "slip." The underwriter
there Jots his name down for $5,000
ot the total.
At the next table the clerk may
find an underwriter willing to be responsible for $2,500 at tbe suggested
premium. And so Lhe clerk goes from
box to box till the whole sum is underwritten. All big responsibilities
are shared in this way.
Though underwriters have not the
guarantee of the whole house behind
them, as have members of tbe stock
exchange, a bill in parliament gives
it to them. But even without that
an underwriter's financial soundness
can be counted on, for before he is
accepted as a member of "The Room"
he has not only to undergo a searching examination into his career, but
to make a deposit, the minimum
being $25,000. So tbe Coronation
money ls pretty safe.

In tbe senate the bill will run a
gauntlet of speeches and amendments.
At leant 30 senators expect to speak
in opposition. No one counts upon
less than six weeks of debate. There
is no outward evidence that the President has succeeded in making terms
with the Democrats, many of whom
say the House free list bill will inevitably be presented as one of the
modmcations of the reciprocity bill.
Pressing the free list bill would
give serious concern to tbe Democratic senators, who really favor reciprocity, and would be the subject of
much debate. Despite Democratic
and Insurgent opposition Senator
Penrose predicts the passage of the
bill and an adjournment of the extra
session before August lst.
A favorable report is not expected
from the committee. In deference to
tbe President's wishes many republican senntors will restrain tbeir opposition to tbe extent of permitting
the bill to go to the Senate without
opposition, but they will reserve the
right to oppuse tbe bill in open senate.
