Large Crowds Attended Both Days—Large Display
of All Kinds of Fruit Grown in the District
The exhibition beld this week   was
just about as great a success us   we
could    possibly    wish    for.     Apart
trom the crowds of city people there
were a great quantity uf visitors al-'
to,  who, when entering the grounds, '
exclaimed their admiration for    the'
splendid exhibition ball tbat has been '
erected.        The   abundance of space,
that everything enjoyed was also   a |
•octree of delight.     Thc accommoda- j
tlon provided was such    as to war-1
rant an expectation next year of the!
largest and best exhibitions tbat has [
ever been    seen   in the west, it     is j
never,too soon to start planning for
it and the encouragement given    to I
exhibitors   this year   will no doubt
put Into the minds of those Interested a confidence that will  unmistakably bear fruit in future exhibitions.
Everything wns placed under cover
and at night two watchmen wore
placed in thc building to look after
Special mention should bo given to
the fact that the ladles enjoyed what
to them was a great treat,—practically u room to themselves. They
werc also delighted with the arrangements mnde to keep people from
handling tbe various articles they
had on exhibition.
Our local tradesmen were also to
the fore with their exhibits. The
Hash and Door Factory made n
splendid exhibit of doors, halllsters,
ornamental work, flooring, etc.
Cranbrook Trading Oo. hnd a lurge
collection of harness, trunks, rugs,
poultry supplies, etc.
J. D. McHrldo with not perhaps
such au abundant display of gi.ods
but tho farming Implements, lumberman's stoves, cooking ranges, antl
workmen's tools of 'ill description,
was very tastily arranged.
The Saskatoon Flour Mills of
Moose Jaw had a Inrgo showing of
Robin Hood and Keynote flours. The
company were making this large exhibit on behnU of tho Cranhrook
Jobbers, Ltd., who are the general
distributing agents for Cranlirook
and district.
W. H. Wilson's exhibit of jewelry
and diamonds drew lurge crowds to
his stand. There could be seen the
genuine Cullivan diamond nn well as
numerous others set In a ground
work of beeswax colored with lampblack, Mr, Wilson also had his leuse grinding machine on show and an

jams and pastry, took advantage of
the advertising scheme of Messrs.
Fink    Mercantile &.   Co,, and Camp
bell & Manning's, Both of these
well known stores had lixed up in
the hall a stove where water could
be heated und cups of tea and coffee
aud a biscuit could be partaken of
by thc ladiea and they were not slow
in saying how good it tasted.
Little & Atchison had charge of
the refreshment booth proper, that
was in the grounds away from the
exhibition hall.
Especially must attention bq drawn
to the large exhibit that the East
Kootenay Produce Co. had on view,
Tt really did not matter what you
wanted so long as it was on wheels
they had it. They occupied a binding as we said in our last week's
paper that was built entirely at their
own expense and they are to be congratulated on their enterprise.
Messrs. B. H. Short and J. S.
Mennle were the men who painted
the many signs that spread themselves all over the exhibition hall.
It is to be hoped that the large
display of fruits and garden produce
grown on tbo St. Mary's Prairie and
brought in for exhibition purposes by
Father Heck of St. Eugene Mission,
and also by tbe Oblate Fathers will
prove a big advertisement for tbe
district ns a positive proof of tho
wonderful productive power that is
contained in the soil hereabouts. F.
Russell the real estate and bind a-
gent, also bud n large display ol
wheat, oats, barley, in fact all kinds
and varieties of grain.

Y.M.C.A. Notes.
The after church song service Is
now n regular feature at the "Y".
A hearty and cordial invitation Ib
given to every man to come out, and
spend aa hour in singing the old
time hymns. Tho orchestra is
growing, but there is room for a few
more instruments. Don't forget tbe
bour,   8.45 p.m. ewi'y Sunday.
During the past week visiting
members from tbe following places
have called at the Y.M.C.A.: Blrming
ham, Eng., Glasgow, Scotland, Montreal, Winnipeg, London, Ont., Portland, Maine, Boston, Mnss., Pocatel-
lo, Ida. This goes to show how far
afield a membership ticket may he
used and shows how world-wide the
movement is.
Bowling alleys are in Al condition
at the "Y," some good scoring has
already been doue. Some of the old
timers have gone over the two hundred mark. It is now in order to
bave names of teams and players on
same, handed into the office.
The Y.M.C.A. football team in
coming away strong. LaBt Saturday afternoon they had an easy victory over the C.P.R. shopB. Score 7
to 5. The "Y" team are open for
a game with any team today (Saturday)   15-46k.
Owing to the kindness of Mr. Mof-
fatt, the owner of the Wilmer town-
site, wbo has promised a town lot
for the purpose, thore is now a good
prospect of getting a church of England building erected in Wilmer this
fall. Every effort will be made to
raise funds to cover the expense of
building which is estimated at something less than one thousand dollars.

Dear Kir :—
I notice you copy a statement
which the Nelson News attributed to
me saying that 1 stated in Nelson
that only those wearing pig tails,
wooden boots, etc., could get a job
with tbc Otis Staples Lumber Company. 1 at once wrote the News on
seeing . this report denying—as thc
fact is—that I mentioned the Otis
Staples Lumber Company In any
shape or form in my speech at Nelson. The allegation Is untrue nnd
I would he obliged if you could publish this denial.

The Conservatives elected everywhere were returned hy larger majorities than have ever boon given be-
fore In a Canadian elect ion. Tbe
election results indicate that the Canadian electors were move! by sentiment as much as by material consideration. It bas been an adorn
in Canada's politics that no Party
could succeed without a majority tn
the province of Quebec, but the results of today's voting bave destroyed this theory, for tbe government thougb defeated, retained a
majority in Quebec. Many who ,ie-
lleved tiiat tbe Conservatives wouid
win expected the majority to lie ■om-
paratively small, and the result would be that the French Nationalist
group oi the opposition would held
the bnlanee ol power and that ll>nn

"I'll bet that's Jlmsy now," be muttered.
Much hurt, but disguising ber feelings, KniniH hurried Into the kltcbeu
and pressed the button that opened
the entrance door of the house.
THERE   was  a   knock,   tbe  unlatched door opened, and Jamea
Smith walked in.
"Anybody at home''" be demanded briskly.
"Not a solitary living soul," Emma
assured blm. "Come In."
"Hello, Joe! You a dead one. too?"
he said.
"Almost," replied Brooks, brightening up a little In spite of himself under the Influence of his friend's good
naturcd smile and rheerlness tbut positively emanated from him. 'Just
come up?"
"Yep, and I reckon tn about time to
help," be said, glancing at tbe crockery on thc tuble.
"Just ln time." assented Emma,
whose drooping spirits also tn-gun to
rise under tbe diversion cuused by his
advent. "But first explain what you
mean by not eo.ning to dinner."
"I couldn't come, really. 1 tried my
best, but I had to attend to such a lot
of business that couldn't be put off
that 1 was unable to get here In time.
1 hope you didn't wait long for me.
I'm awfully sorry."
"You look It—I don't think," she
scolded. "Co ot;; get busy if you're
going to!"
"All right," he answered, taking up
a Finall idle ot cups nnd saucers very
gingerly. "Where do these go? If

and slip n broom Into tbe sideboard."
"They go right lu here."
He stopped on tbe way to the sideboard and turned to Brooks.
"Seen thc latest extra, Joe?" he In
quired.    "The Orinoco  wasn't  hardly
scratched getting out of Rio Janeiro."
"You don't say!"
"Kind o' scraped over the bur. She'll

"1   mean   real   china."  she  emphasized.
"All china aud Chinamen look alike
to me. Here's thu paper, Joe. You'll
find all about tbe Orinoco on the Inside page."
He drew it from bis pocket, uud as
be did so one of tbe cups balanced on
tbe saucers slipped off and smashed to
bits ou tbe carpet.
"Now, Jlmsy, you certainly are going
to get It," commented Joe, rising and
taking tbe pnper extended to blm.
Smith looked appeullngly at bis
'■Jlmsy," she cblded, assuming nn
expression of mock gravity, "how
could you—my very best Sunday go to
meeting china!   How could you!"
"Not bow could I—how did I?" be
corrected, stooping and picking up the
pieces. "You know, tlinniii, I've had
butter fingers ever since I was a little
shaver, and I guess I alwnys will

"Why, how do you mean?"
•i "I've been clumsy all my life, thnt's

"How broken even?"
"Taking their side for tbe book. 1
win tbe first bet and lose thc second.
There ain't nothing sawed off and
hammered down about me, Is there?"
"I should say not," sbe said, with a
merry laugh. "You've been pulhd out
like a piece of taffy."
"Then I win, but It was In doubt

Brooks, who had been reading thc

"I>—n blm!" be growled.
"Joel" exclaimed bis wife reproachfully.
"1>~D who?" Imiuln d Smith.
"Why, Williams." be replied.
"Lots have done tbat," Held the superintendent "But what's the matter
now. Joe?"
"His luck." went on Brooks. "The

drcd to oue that she'd bare foundered

"That's right," assented Smith.
"But Williams—he don't lose her. He
"1 should think you'd be glad," remarked Emma. "She's a brand new
ship. Isn't she?"
"No, I'm not glad," he declared furiously, rising and walking about the
room. "I'm tired of bim, of his rotten old steamship line, of alt of it-
1 you hear?   Of all of It."
"Joe, please 1" she protested. "You
kuow I"—
"I kuow you've slaved aud bore witb
me long enough! Here 1 am handling
all the mouey of thut line, ain't tbat
so, Jlmsy?"
"That's right." admitted tlie latter.
"But What's the matter?"
"Matter? Isn't It matter enough thai
' I should do uii tbis for a mean, miserable living? I suffer uml work, aud
work and suffer, fur that nasty, nig
gurdiy salary and this Least, this wild
animal of a Williams, keeps us all

you know wbut I could do? I could
steal thousands, and no one wuuld
ever know It!"
"Joe!" she ejaculated, greatly shocked.
"Oh. I'm not going to do It; but. with
all this responsibility, when I ask for
money I don't get it -not a dollar. You
do, Jlmsy; you're single and you can
quit. And then Williams- what does
1 he do? Comes around here to my
wife wtth my mother-in-law—d- u blm
-and rubs It In."
Emma looked at him pleadingly
"Joe, you mustn't. Captain Williams
means well, but"—
He turm-d upon her savagely.
"That's it-he means well. He
meant well when be was a south Pacific trader. He meant well when he
treated his crew like dogs. He meant
well wben he'd kill a sailor witb as
much thought as a spider kills a lly.
He meant well when he cheated natives, murdered men, smuggled Chfua-
men Into this country, sunk vessels
for insurance, He meant well when
he came east, bought the Latin-American company and put your father ou*.
of business, and now—now that be
hns bis money, his millions maybe, he
means well wbeu be refuses to give
!il« men a fair share of what they produce.     Means   well?     Yes,   ho   does—
"Joe, nre you crazy?" demanded his
wife, alarmed and a little angry at his
"Well, there's a  whole  lot of truth
In what Joe says.** put In Smith con-
clllatlngly.    "You  see,   Williams  did
start out as a captain of a soutb I'acilic  trader,   but.   like   most  of  them
fellows,  I guess he stole a pood deal
; more than he traded.   He had tbe reputation of being tbe Btrongest man on
thc coast or In the tropics—could break
s  man's  arm   with  as much ease as
| you'd snap a Btraw.   Ue'B harsh, WIN
Hams Is—harsh!    When he cume east
he got eortroJ of the Iaitin-Anierleaii.
He loved money, und be got It-most
any way he could.    Yes, Joe ought tu
I nave more, that's sure.    He ought to
| have more,"
"You   know   I   should,"   went   on
|  Brooks,   somewhat   mollified   by   bis
friend's nci-ulcsceuce and support and
drawing a bulky pocketbook from the
Inside pocket of his waistcoat.   "I've
got control of nil the money of the
company.   That's my Job.   Why. here,
this alone Is the afternoon collections,
too  bite   to   put   tn   the  safe,   nearly

"Why, Joe, I'm surprised!" bis wife
| broke In.
j "Of course Joe wouldn't tnke a cent
; that don't belong to him," said Smith.
I "I know that. Williams does too. So
I guess he figures hltn snfe nnd don't
■ see the least bit of use in paying him
j more."

The Gold  Penny.
The most valuable penny ever coined in Great Britain wus tlie gold
penny of Henry HI. On August lb,
1227, a writ duted at Chester was issued, commanding the Mayor oi London to proclaim in that city that the
"gold penny which the king had
cuused to be made should be immediately current there and elsewhere
witnin the realm oi England, and alt
transactions of buying and selling, ati
the rate uf twenty pennies a sterling
(I.e. twenty silver pennies) lor every
gold one."
The time, however, wus by no means
fuvorable fur the issue of the p.eces
oi a denomination so much higher
than had previously been kuuwn. Accordingly, the city oi London petitioned against these coins, and the
King issued a proclamation that no
'one should be ubliged to take them.
The coins, nevertheless continued tu
be current, and in 12U5 their value was
raised irum twenty to twenty-luur
pence; probably equivalent in purchasing power to two pounds sterling
ol to-day.
It is unlikely that any great number of these coins ever was struck. It
is probable that, by reason oi their
high value, they would soon be melted down, ior they were of pure gold
without alloy of any kind. The collectors of tii-dny know oi only three
or four specimens. One of thes.- was
sold iur mure tnau $2U0, anutuer tur
$701), and another ior  $1,000.
Gas and Matches Were Novelties.
We left Geneva somewhere about
163d, and I made my first acquaint-'
ance with Kngland. I recollect being very mucn struck by the gas
liguting in tne streets and shops,
then recently introduced and still a
matter ol interest. The master ol
a lodging house taught me how gas
waa made by means ol a tobacco
pipe, tue buwl of which he tilled
with coul dust, covering it with putty and placing it in tne fire, ln a
short tim.' gas enough was generated
to be lit at the mouthpiece. Lucifer
matches at that time were quite a
novelty. All lighting had previously
been done by Hint and steel. At flrst
there was a complicated arrangement
by which the Luciier had to be held
in a bottle oi some piatparation, which
lighted it. Kubber Lucilers were oi
later date.—From Wolff's "Rambling

The Conservative meeting in Elko
was very well attended considering
the weather, but the chairman and
speakers had overloaded themselves

Canadian that would vote for Reciprocity could not tell a gold nueget

A thrilling ride on the hurricane
deck of a wild cayuse was tbe experience of Mr. J. Taylor, recently
arrived from Aberdeen, Scotland. Mr.
Taylor who is chief accountant    for
on Monday the llth Dr. King held a
most successful midday meeting, a
large crowd turning out from the adjacent mills.
the A. Binnic contracting and transferring Company, had heen superintending the transferring of a big pack
train into the mountains for a big
game hunt. Mounted on a native
Mountain Bro nek, unaccustomed to
J riding he was returning back to Elko
after seeing the pnrty to the hunting
grounds, when he was overtaken by a
thunder storm in the mountains. The
pony knowing the danger started for
home and haled hay and Taylor was
hanging on to the stock saddle like a
wood tick to a niggers shin, pleading
with the pony like Hairy Lauder does with his wife to stop and let him
get off down the South Fork trail
tlie pony fairly Hew said Mr. Taylor
and in its mad rush missed the ford
and jumped into the deep water below and swam the stream and we'll
bet Taylor thought of Bonnie Ai».*-
'lyii.i and wee ones at home rea;h'ig
. i' other side he climbed thi hanks
like a mountain goat and through
the thick bush until it reached the
sheep mountain trnll into Elko.' In
relating his experience Mr. Taylor
said be'bad no idea that a moanlain
cayuse could bent the Scotch express
and he had rode both. We have
been in these mountains a good many
years and the storm was the worat
in our experience. There is no damage reported other than the mountain streams were in flood for a te*
hours. On being informed that the
storm came from the south Mr. Taylor pleaded with Mr. Birnie to vote
for Mr. Goodeve as nothing good
could come from the south. Mr. Taylor snid his experience on this occasion wasn't exactly what you might
call a Parlor game.

Mr. F. Spalding, the Fernie photographer, has spent n busy week In
the vicinity. Judging from results

Owing to an automobile break
down, Lawyer Flshor nnd pnrty wore
unable to hold tho reciprocity meet

the late General Hugh Fitzhugh Lee,
"without thinking of an old colored
preacher in my state who was addressing his dark-skinned congregation, when a white man arose in the

" 'Mr. Preacher,' suid the white
man, 'you arc talking about -ain,

But the Bible only mentions Adam

The Farmer and The Banker
Our flrst advice to the farmer
whose ambition is to improve his
business methods is to open a bnak*
account if thut has not already been
done. The banks deserve more credit for improving business conditions
on the farm than any other single
institution. They serve, not only as
markets for cnpital and credit, but
as business counsellors and educators
to the farmer. The opening of a
bank-account is a distinct step forward townrd the improvement of
one's business methods. Almost unconsciously tbe depositor will acquire
some of tlie exact methods of the
banker; and hiB business will be improved accordingly, That the farmers all over the country are beginning to appreciate . the banks ih evi-1
dent from tlie enormous growth ot ■
deposits in rural communities. It
is claimed that fully ninety-five per
cent, of the country's business is!
done by credit currency such as J
checks, drafts, notes, and tbe like.
It is, therefore, of the utmost im-'
por tan ce that the progressive fanner
acquaint himself of the methods and j
practices of bunking.
The most Importnnt advantages ot
banking may lie set down under night
heads, as follows :
1. The depositor's credit and in-1
liuence as measured largely by tho i
condition of bis bank-account.
2. A tendency to economize will be
fostered hy a desire to increase the
bank balance.
3. Tho banker becomes the depositor's bookkeeper and business counsellor.

The lives of the early pioneers oi

would contain romance, tragedy ami
pathos such as in the hands of an
able writer wuuld fill volumes. Mat))

U-  read.
In the Township of Westminster,
Middlesex County, with ns northern
buundary on ttie River Thames, there
are many authentic sturies uf the
pioneers of ', ie district which deserve
t.i be told to succeeding generation*
M only to inspire them with the same
feeling of brutlierhnod, heroic courag.
and perseverance which distinguish**..
these early settlers. There have been
three separate surveys of the town
ship, On the lir-.t and second con
cessions, running parallel -j the river,
the lots are a mile and a ijuarter iu
length. The second survey, whicn
wa- inaile along the west ride ot the
township, almost at right angles with
tht first, gave concessions two and a
hall miles wide. This is known a*
the Nortli Street survey, and the mail
which runs through it is purt of th.*
old Talbot road of Elgin County
Tne remainder ol the township was
surveyed several year* after the se
cond, and the concessions are Bvh
sixths ol a mile wide. In oonse
quence of this variety of surveys a
map of the township looks something
like a section ol a crazy patchwork
Digman's Creek runs acros? the
township from east to v st, crossiug
and recrossing some of the concessions nearly a dozen tini-s, and close
to this creek occurred one of the
most pathetic Incidents associated
with the early settlers of the town
ship. Here lived a family named
Crouse, about three-quarters of a
mile south of the second concession
but at the time when they settled in
the locality there were no road-
simply old Indian trails and the foot
paths m: !e bv the incoming settlers
On the 4th of April, 1832, two little
boys, members of the Crouse family.
which, by the way, was a lurge une
wandered away from home und wer-
lost in the woods. Thomas, the elder
of the twu. was nearly five years,
and Nelson, the younger, barely three
years of age. As soon as it was realised that the children were lost the
signal was sent around and the settlers, though few and widely scattered, came from all directions in an
■wer to the frantic calls ol tlie parent*
for help to search for their missing
The blessed feeling of brotherhood
which was such a striking character
iastie of the early settlers never showed
itself more strongly than when sor,
row or trouble fell on uny family, and'
work was abandoned, homes left with,
no one to care for them, while old,
and young gathered and formed them,
selves into search parties to look for
the boys. The gathering included
men from as far away as Barilla,
Chatham, antl even Windsor on the
west, and on the cast (rom pot nte
twiinty i: iles distant, for thc newe

cabin. All came on foot. loi if they'
had brought conveyances they would
'have been useless iu the forest. At
that tim*, however, hurst's were few
And the beast of burden was the slow
but   useful   ox.     Kvery   Inch   of   thi-
fTouml within easy distance of the
lume was searched, but uo trace ol
the missing children found. The parly!
then divided itself into sections and
formed a long line for the purpose of
closely searching further nway from
the Crouse home. A numbei of the
men stationed throughout these lung
(lines hud guns or the useful dinner-
horn, and the system of signalling,
•wus arranged bo that if the children;
were found it could be mude known
along the whole extent of the search
line, which stretched for miles.
, The settlement lay nearly all to
the nurth of the Crouse homestead,
while to the south us far ns St.
Thomas, a distance of abuut seven
miles, not a stick uf timber had been
cut, and this was the district it was
agreed tu sweep. Nearing une uf the
many curves of Digman's Creek lute
in the evening, a Mr. Patrick found
the younger boy, Nelson, seated on a
log, crying and almost perished with
the cold, for the   two  children  had
f'one away barefooted. As well as the
ittle lad could tell, he explained that
they had gone in search of wild onions,
and that ne, being unable to keep up
with his brother, decided to wait there
while Thomas went farther afield.
Mr. Patrick heard the older boy
call back two ur three times words
of encouragement to his little brother.
The signul wai sent uut t..at une of
the children had been found, and almost everyone felt sure that then,
wuuld bo no dilliculty in locating
Thomas, fir he could not be very lar
away, seeing that he had been heard
shouting to Nelson. But al'.huugh the
search was continued all that night
and the next day, and for several day-
after, Thorr. . was never found.
What became of him was never even
known for certainty. Some thought
that the it-ar uf strangers which characterized al) the children of the early
pioneers—for ihey seldom saw Strang-
ers—hud induced Tommy to hide in
some place, and in that hiding he hail
probably perished. Other thought tha:
■ome wandering tribe uf Indians had
carried him away, but, whatever tin
fute uf the lad was, no truce ui mm

A   Good   Returt.
!    Dr. Rutherfo'd, Live Stock Commis-
f sioner Ior Canada,  who used to be in
politics, got back neatly at a m.-.nber
'of Parliament, a short time ago.
The doctor was under examination
[in the agricultural committee, aud in
:--peaking uf Canadian cattle he produced an old photograph which he
I stated he had obtained in the Province
i of Quebec, He said that he had found
I it in the barn of a farmer, and he
; smilingly related how, by a little care-
iul manipulation he had managed to
earry it away with blm.
H. H. Miller, the member for Soutr
Grey, thought he saw a chance to
take a fall out uf the doctor, so he
interrupted with the comment, "1
hope you left tlie barn, doctor."
"Yes," said Dr. Rutherford. "Ynu

West Africa. The message was received at Dakar within one hour ol

especially tu those who are descendants of the settlers. Beside the many
interesting "tablets" erected to the
memory of "Tne Pioneers ul Canada
West" which une sees on the walls of
St. Andrews, not the least interesting
is a beautiful memorial window over
the altar to the memory ot the "pioneer builder of churches in the west,"
the Rev. Archdeacon Cochrane, placed
there some thirty-two years ago.
St. Andrews Parish, which is so rich
in history, has one historical advantage over Furt Garry in that it still
retains its original name and identity,
while Furt Garry and other places are
lust in name to the people of to-day.
The old church building and rectory
are in a good state of preservation,
and the latter is occupied by tiie
present rector and his family.
Mr. Bryce, writing to the Rev. John
West, who wus tne first minister ol
St. Andrews, suys; "He arrived in the
Red River Settlement in October,
1820, aud at once began his labors by
holding services in Fort Garry, and
in 1823 he erected the first Protestant
place ol worship on the Red River,
and when he returned to England two
years afterwards the second minister
of St. Andrews, the Rev. William
Cochrane, and his wife arrived at the
settlement, aud to Mr. Cochrane, afterwards created Archdeacon, is given
deservedly much of the credit of laying
the foundation of the church ou the
Red River. He not only luid the foundation o! the Protestant Church in
Canada west, but he also supervised
the erection ol this pioneer church
sixty-one yeurs ago. It was not until
1844 that the tirst Protesant Bishop,
Dr. Mountain of Montreal, visited tliis
then remote spot. In 1849 the Diocese
of Rupert's Land was established, and
the Rev. David Anderson consecrated
its first bishop. To this church belonged, besides the settlers, nearly all
the English-speaking hall-breed population of the colony, as well as a large
number of the Hudson Bay Co.'s of-
During the sixty-two years of its
existence the parish has had, besides
the Revs. Mr. West and Archdeacon
Cochrane, the following incumbents in

Archdeacon Hunter, Bishop Young,
Bishop Grisdale, Rev. A. L. Fortin,
Rev. Mr. Barber, Rev. Canon J. W.
Matheson, Rural Dean Johnson, Rev.
Mr. King, Rev. G. E. Brownlee and

The old municipality of St. Andrews
has a superficial area of about five
hundred miles, aud extends from
Purkdale tu Winnipeg Beach, along
the west shore ol the Red River. The
municipality where Lcrd Selkirk established the lirst colony, exactly one
century ago, hus just been born to a
new life, und a lew years hence will
see this picturesque valley become one
of the most attractive and densely-
peopled suburban districts in Canada.

traveler a rare glimpse of the olden
times, us here ure to be seen the

view on any subject, and you will not
only get a view worth while, hut
promptly and with distinguished courtesy—even to an unknown, bothersome
person. And the chancellor's voice is
so young and fresh you would not
believe him to be past the "alloted
'■ span."
The courtesy of Dr. Burwash helps
you to understand how, in  all conflicts of theological opinion, he calmly holds his way and yet escapes on-
I kindly criticism.   Other men may be
a.  absolutely  sincere  and   yet misunderstood.    But the chancellor can

Chancellor Burwash was born in
Argenteuil, Quebec, ol United Empire
Loyalist stock. With a broad education on a broad foundation of virtuous,
virile manhood, he entered the Meth-i-
dist ministry in Ontario in IBM. He
became a professor at Victoria sii
years later, and was appointed president and chancellor in 188 He is the
author of a number of theological
works, also of "The Life and Times ol
Egerton Kyerson" and "Development

father was also connected with Canada, having been in command of the
Imperial forces in Halifai iu 1377
and acting as the Administrator ol
Canada while Lord Dufterin, then
Governor-General, waa absent iu
Washington. To the late general is
due the credit lor the establishment
ol Canada's School of Musketry,
which, to use Sir Frederick Borden •
words spoken in October, 1903, has
"proved one ol the most valuable adjuncts that the militia of Canada na.
ever possessed."
Oen. O'Grady Haly acted as A.DC.
to the general In Canada Irom 1870 to
1879, and had thus gained a thorough acquaintance with Canadian conditions belore his appointment to the

Christening Midland.
At the extreme southeast end of
Georgian Hay is the inlet marked on
the Uayfleld chart "Mundy's Bay,"
now better known as "Midland Bay."
It is the exact shape of a horseshoe,
and the waters are deep enough, even
at the shore, to permit the old sailing ships to lock their spars in the
branches of the trees. The bav is
without rock or shoal, and is by long
odds the best harbor on fresh water.
Thirty-five years ago the land along
the waters of the bay was an unbroken'
wilderness. To the south, about'half
a mile from the water, there were one
or two farms, the merest clearances in
'the woods, which had been cut out'
by one or two settlers who were half
farmer and half trapper.
! The location is an ideal oue for a,
town. There is enough r.at land close,
to the water for business sites and1
factories, while as you go further back
the land rises in terraces so that thei
residents can have an uninterupted'
view of a magnificent sheet of water
beautiful in calm or storm.
The place took the lancy of a number of capitalists in Port Hope and
that neighborhood, who had become,
interested in a scheme put forward
by the late Baron Adolph. Von Huge!
to build through the Midland Counties of Ontario a line of railway from
Port Hope to the Georgian Bay. They
selected- it as their terminal point and
christened it "Midland City."—Canadian Century.
The Ketcheeoni.
The reunion ol the Ketcheson
lamily held recently in Sidney Town,
ship, Hastings County, was attended
by about 800 of the descendants ol
the founder of the Canadian branch of
the family. Win. Ketcheson was born-
in Howden, Yorkshire, England, In'
1759 and came to the States with his
parents in 1773. In 1786 Wm. Ketcheson, one of the old Loyalists, came
to Canada, settling in what ie now
Hastings County. In 1800 the King
granted him the patent of 600 acres
of land on Ihe filth concession of Sidney, and there he built himself a
home, which still stands and is in
excellent repair. The farm is occupied by George A. Ketcheson, a direct descendant of the original pioneer.
' The title of lieutenant-colonel was
conferred on Mr. Ketcheson for. services rendered the country ln the troublous days of 1819. In 1814, at a.
reunion of the family of the veteran,
there were living eight children, 71
grandchildren, and 69 great-grandchildren. The descendants to-day
number nearly 1,700, Mattered all over

Rifle and Pistol Cartridges
The advent of smokeless powder called for improved methods in
the manufacture of rifle and pistol cartridges with the result that
all cartridges are now made better than formerly. Winchester

in the most complete plant in the world, by experts, and can be
depended upon to be sure fire and accurate, and of maximum
shooting strength.   They cost no more than many inferior makes.

The terrible bubonic plague, which
appeared iu Hongkong In 1S1M. spread
from there to Botuhuy uud iu the next
twelve yeara carried off more thnn
6,000,000 victims, hos heen almost quiescent for the pust few yeurs, but ln
1010 it uppenred in u virulent form ln
Uurbin, hns since spread to other cities and is now a worldwide menace.
More alarming than the reappearance of the disease In Munchuria la
the discovery of tho disease lu the
eustern coastwise counties of Kngluud,
where several deaths huve occurred.
Until 1000 little was known regarding thc mode of propagation of this
terrible dlseuse, ultliough the disease
Itself Is us old us history. In 1000
the Indian plague research commission ilellnitely traced (lie spread of the
epidemic to tbe Hens on tbe black rats
of the country. Tbo rats themselves
hare the dlseuse. A Uea which tucks
the blood of the rut takes the germs
Into Its stomnch. If the den bites a
human being within a period of three
weeks tbe germs are transferred and
the human being contracts the disease.
Until recently It bud heen supposed
that only the black rut Is susceptible
to the plague and that ouly the Ilea
known as 1'ulei cbeopls could transfer It Later discoveries, however,
have shown tbat the common brown
or Norway rat Is also liable to the disease and that it may be transferred by
the ordinary rat flea.
Still another matter of grent Interest
bos been disclosed by the cases in
England, which are uot tbe bubonic,
but the even more deadly and more
dangerous pneumonic plague. The bubonic form, in which the lymphatic
glands swell and suppurate, is transferable only through some such medium as tbe rat and the flea. The pneumonic form, on the other hand, Is directly Infectious.—Youth's Companion.

Hands Tied to Prevent Scratching
The Great Westt Thtt Comtt With
Making Up Thtir B.dt.
In logging operations the felling of
one of the big trees requires much
skill iu order that it muy not be broken ln the full, as such an accident
means perhaps the loss of fully $000.
owing to the value of the wood. As
yet, however, the old method prevails
of cutting It part of the way through
wltb the crosscut saw worked by two
men, the ax being used for an incision
on tbe opposite side, tbe trunk being
felled by means of wedges.
In felling the tree, a number of
smaller ones are frequently cut dowu
to form a bed on which it may fall so
that It will not break ou account of
Its weight. Here is n great waste,
since the felling of a Br 150 tons lu
weight may require the sacrifice of a
group of other trees wbleb at maturity would equal It ln size. In the
"clearings" mny he seen thousands of
the young trees wblcb bave been cut
dowu merely for "beds."
Undoubtedly a mechanical system
could be utilized In tbe work, such as
a portable power derrick, tbe top of
which could be attached to a tree by
the block and tackle system, thus allowing tbe trunk when cut through to
be lowered gradually by means of
ropes of steel cable without tbe timber being Injured ond tbe crushing of
tbe smaller trees near It.—W. A. Oay

ln the modern skyscraper we have

Should the metal pipes or frames of

is asked hy the Electrical Review,
which apprehends that a powerful
wireless station within a large city
might cause trouble. It will be remembered that the high voltage and
powerful sparka at such stations
have already earned them in England the title of "thunder factories"
The probable effect of such a station
in a city "certainly seems to be a

That apparently up-to-date method
of Illustrating centrifugal force
known as "looping the loop" waB
practiced, it seems, as long ago a.
i.iie llrst half of the last century. A
French journal ascribes its invention
to M. Ciaviero, of Havre. At first
the car that did the "looping" bore
nothing hut bags of sand, but Boon
a passenger made the venture, aad In
1850, the sport was a prominent feature of the performance at tho Paris
Hippodrome. Apparently, however,
it was reserved for thia country to
throw tbe sport open to the public,
as was done at Coney Island, and
later to produce a performer daring
enough to make the trip on a bicycle
In spite of this long record, the feasibility of the loop trip with .,i car
running on rails was denind se\eral
years ago in a technical journal, on
the ground that the necessary initial ,
speed could not be ohtnined.

The extraordinary ine nslstencl s
which characterise the administration of the laWB in Great Britain arc
legion. It is not Infrequently ex
tremely difficult for a ci nsclentloua
handicraftsman, who may, perchance
unfortunately lind himself in some

keep hla family out of the work

ample scope for numerous Itinerant
musicians, street-hawkers, quack-doctors, cheap-jacks, etc., not to mention the regular army of foreign Importations, such as German bands,
Italian organ- grinders, French onion
boys, and Hebrew tally-men, who
pay uh periodical vIbUb and make
our lives a veritable misery by tholr

—especially when engaging In mounting climbing exploits. A noteworthy Instance of rocklessnesB occurred
lust week, when W. A. .Skipper and
wife of Dallas. Texas, were frozen to
death near the summit of 'Ike's
peak, Colorado, The lady, despite
her two score nnd tive years, was fr.Il
of vim and vigour ami evidently of
the "I'm from Missouri and >ou
can't Btoer me," temperament.
Against her husband's express vUhes
(she was some years his junior) Mra.
Skinner insisted on climbing the peak
She was exceedingly ambitious to be
considered an intrepid mountaineer
and laughed to scorn her husband's
Bound advice and cautionary admonitions. Replying to Mr. Skinner's
oft-repented opinion that they voild
not succeed in reaching the top of
the mountain; -she is reported to
bave suid, "I'm from Texas, and
they're not going to say, when I get
back, tbat I could not climb Ciko'fi
Peak." Well—now they will say
tlmt SHE DID climb the mountain
hut with sucb disastrous results that
neither the foolhardy, misguided
lady or her poor unfortunate henpecked husband will bear them say
40. As if to add to the tragic circumstances surround im* tlie deplorable deaths; a letter was found in
Mr. Skinner's pocket containing the
passage "1 hope you don't freeze to
death on Tike's Peak." Oh, the bitter irony ot fate. Two lives forfeited for the nakc of satisfying a silly
woman's petty pride. How inexpress-
ubly sad. What un object lesson to
the thinker.
A young Scotchman who has only
just "arrived"—his christian name la
Jack—in Cranbrook irom the "land
of the thistle," is nnxious to ascertain the origin of tbe term "to get
the needle"—a typical old-country
slang phrase which translated into
the vernacttlar of "the land of the
maple" means "to get sore or
mad." After consulting several authorities of repute we are forced to admit, my dear unsophiscnted young
friend, that the actual origin of this
charmingly idiomatic remark "to get
the needle" is a little obscure. It
doubtless sprung, however, from ths
following rhyme which was NOT
written by Kipling but by one of ths
minor poets :
There was an old lady at Cheadle
Who sat down in church on a noodle,
Dy good luck it was threaded
So it was not imbedded,
And was promptly pulled out by tbe

Sir Wilfrid Laurier
Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, B.C.L.,
P.C, late prime minister of Canada,
nnd one time leader of the Liberal
party of thc Dominion, waa
born November        24th,      1841,

C. From an early age Sir Wilfrid
took a deep Interest in public alTalrs
aud also gave his attention to literature. In IS71 ho began public life
by bolng elected to tho legislative
assembly of tho provlmo of Quebec.
Ho remained thore until 1(174, when
he enterod the houso of commons. At
once his brilliant, abilities and high
character woro acknowledged. Whon
Mr. Mnckcnzin waB railed upon to
form an administration, the portlol-
lo of Inland Rovenuc> wns assigned to
him. Since that time Sir Wilfrid

During tho political campaign of
1891 his lahors were most abundant
and successful, especially in Quebec,
whore ho changed the government majority Into a minority.
In 1896 Sir Wilfrid was called upon to form an administration, and
since that time he has been prime
minister of Canadn. His government for a brief time wns most satisfactory, but gradually it was
weakened by politicians who brought
charges of graft and corruption.
These charges increased, and calum-
nated with the building of the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway.
Sir Wilfrid was staunch to his
friends. Honest himself, he could
not credit the statements that his
friends nnd personal advisors had
gone wrong, It was, in all probability, his fidelity to his colleagues,
Messrs. Fielding and Patcrfion, tbat
contributed to his defeat on Thursday. Wc arc of tho opinion that Sir
Wilfrid went to the country, so as
to place the responsibility of the reciprocity pact on the trainers of the
agreement, anil to let the people decide whether they wanted reciprocity
and commercial .union with the United 8tates. His defeat on Thursday
may ho attributed to the over zealous free-trade agreement of Messrs.
Fielding and Paterson.
Potato Growers
The Editor,—
Sir,—I would ask you to kindly,
through the medium of your paper,
Inform potato growers in your district that the provincial government
has decided to make a display of
potatoes at the American Land and
Irrigation Exposition to be held at
Madison Square, New York, November 3rd-12th. Mr. Asahel Smith, of
Ladner, has been appointed commissioner to arrange for the collection
and preparation of this exhibit, and
wlll also accompany it to New York.
The preparation of tbe oihibit will
be undertaken at New Westminster
from which place the exhibit will be
shipped to New York. In order to
allow latitude to Mr. Smith, who
will have charge of the preparation
of the exhibit, it will be necessary
that he receive at least fifty pounds
of carefully named and selected'pota.
toes, and these potatoes must be
chosen having reference to smoothness of skin, uniformity of size, and
flushness of eye, and absolute freedom from all scab or blemish, and
all potatoes must!be received in New
Westminster not Inter than October
It is desired to make this exhibit
as comprehensive aB possible. Tbe
Stillwell trophy award, value 11,000
will be given by the exposition to
the best collection. It is the desire
of this department that a big effort
be mnde to capture thiB trophy. This
can only be done by the co-operation
of the growers. The exhibit will be
made up of as mnny varieties as possible, and not loss thnn half a bushel
of each varioty. The yield of each
variety per acre, which acre must be
officially surveyed, must he sworn to
by the grower and attested by two
or more reputable witnesses. Officials
appointed by this department will be
considered sufficient authority in surveying the land from which potatoes
are taken. Arrangements are being
made for two or three men to cover
the whole of the province, and visit
the growers who wish to compete, ln
order to officially measure the
ground Irom which the potatoes are
Any potato growers in your district wbo are willing to assist the
department in making this exhibit,
are requested to communicate Immediately with Mr. Asahel Smith,,Ladner, B.C.
The winning ot this trophy will
mean a great deal to the district In
which the potatoes are grown, and I
trust that we may receive hearty cooperation nl all tho potato growers,
ln order to make the oxhibit a success,
I have the honor to bo, sir,    your
obedient servant,

How It Feels to Fly
The sensations ()f ascending from
the earth are told graphically by W.
A. Blonck, an aviator ol uote, iti
"Being a Birdman," which appears
in Canada Monthly (formerly Canada
West) for September. Mr. Blonck
says :
"I did not know that I wa* in
motion. The sensation was one of
being stationary, while the earth
dropped away heluw ine. As tlie
balloon travelled steadily with the
breeze and I looked over the olge of
the basket, it seemed as though an
immense and variegated carpet was
being dragged over the surface of a
vast concavity. When a twist of air
caused us to veer or turn round a
few times, the concavity with its
wonderful pattern of llelds nn'l towns
roads nnd trees and hoimes, were
seeming to be revolved—not us. And
as we went higher, the concavity appeared to descend until men were
like mites, and the towns and houses
trees and hills, dwarfed into a toylike expanse of beautiful scenery. No
sound came to us then. The city and
the great crowd that hud gathered in
it, had motion, but no voice. And
always thc horizon, thc rim of the
concavity, remained level with my
eyes. The hollow seemed depresslb-
le, bnt its edge roue with us. Not
that we had any sense of rising. We
were alone and alive over a concave
and elastic world, hanging from a
round, fixed rim.
"It was in Frnnkfort-on rhcM-un,
and I was nineteen years old. I hud,
but then entered on tho engineering
courBe in my college, and was having
my initial view of the great globe I
had heen taught so much about, and
many of whose secrets 1 knew. The
balloon was a captive, with a limit
of fifteen hundred skyward feet. The
trip did not last long, but when the
horizon had lowered to its accustomed level and the surface once more
become flat, I stepped out of the car
with a new idea. That idea 1 have
followed ever since—the idea of aerial
navigation. It was a most awakening experience, which has shaped my
course in life."

How Spirits Appear
According to W. li. Katoti, the
"sperruts" uf seonceB arc in a certain sense real. Souls on a low
plane, eidolons, thnt have mischievous or idle tendencies come back to
earth. Their commun lea tlons arc
worthless, however. lu "The True
Flame," an article in September Canada Monthly (formerly Canada-
West) he quotes an instance of such
an appearance.
"I had two sittings with a Mrs.
Lltkens, in Louisiana Avenue. Washington. They were separated by an
interval of two weeks. 1 tried them
at tho suggestion of Doctor Phoebus
Baxter then chief medical dispensing
officer of tlie Unitod .States army.
Mrs. laiikens believed herself to be
controlled by the spirit of Leopold
de Meyer, n famous musician, A more
impatient or dictatorial control I've
never come across. At i!ie second
sitting I ventured to question some
statement that seemed to me unsound.
"Don't contradict mc," came with
a burst. "I'll hot you every dollar
this woman has in Ihe world that 1
am right."
I withdrew tbo question. I don't
recall just what it was, but 1 can't
forget that sporting offer,
The conversation went on to cover
uvents known by me as having marked de Meyer's professional work in
America. "Corroborative detail, intended to give artistic verisimilitude
to a bald and unconvincing narrative." He or it claimed to have
died the bodily death several years
At the time 1 was associate editor
of the Washington Republican, now
thc Post. The first thing I picked
up from my desk when 1 returned to
the office was a copy of Freund's
Musical Journal, just issued, and the
first thing I saw in it was the announcement of the deatli of Leopold
do Meyer in Europe, the week before.
I have no doubt the control was genuine, hut likewise there was not the
slightest doubt he was a liar etcar-
nate. He had impersonate:! de Meyer to mc at my first sitting, two
weeks before, while the real de Meyer was still in the flesh.
A trolley car had collided with n
heavily iaden milk cart, and sent can
after can of milk splashing into the
street. Soon a crowd gathered. A
man, coming up, had to stand on tip
toe and keep dodging his bead about
to see past a stout, lady in front of
him. "Goodness !" he finally exclaimed, "what an awful waste'"
The stout lady turned and glared
at him. "Mind your own business."
she snapped.

Canada is having a prosperous year
Thc west will have a bumper crop
and tbe cast la by no means poverty-stricken. With the increase of
immigration and better methods of
farming tbe agricultural wealth of
Canada should rapidly multiply
many fold. Tbe foundations are
laid. We have the soil, the climate
thc grain, the fruit, the live stock,
the men and women and everything
else required to mnke our agricultural
wealth certain and permanent. Better methods of tillage, better crop
rotation, more energetic war on
weeds and more business management in farm practice ought to keep
up the standard of our achievements
and bring increased honor and wealth to the men on the land. The
time is uot far distant when a solution to the labor problem will be
possible. It will come by providing
steady work for farm help, throughout the year, by Increasing the horse power on tlie farm, by using machinery to do more of the farm work
aad by adding to the amusement!,
recreations and social advantages of
the country.
With this invigorated outlook for
the future when a newer and better
agriculture will prevail and with
prosperous Bcasons such as we have
had for several years and more generally this year, no one.who knows
thc potential wealth of this country
can doubt its future growth and prosperity. It is the duty as well as
tho privilege of each farmer to do
his best to till his own farm well
and thus help thc whole country.
Only at times does it come home
to Canadians buw many millions of
people in Asia are now living Uuler
the beneficent rule of King Ceorge as
Emperor of India. The population
of India for 1U11 is placed at 315,-
000,000, an Increase of twenty-one
millions in ten years. In the decade the bank ine capital has increased from twenty millions to forty-
three millions. Industrial expansion
had been most marked, particularly
in cotton manufacturing. Twenty
years ago there were 126 eotton
mills, employing 112,000 people; now
there are 232 mills employing 2S6,-
000. In all there has been enumerated 2500 factories, in which many
thousands of people are at work.
His Majesty's ministers are of the
opinion thnt the loss in tiade from
the elimination of the opium tralflc
v.iii be balanced by this wonderful
growth of industries.
Judge a. A. Adams, of thf Indiana
Appellate Court, tells a story of a
man who was a good horpe-trader,
but, through lack of a mathematical
oducatlon, was unable to determine
his per cent of profits.
"This man, relates .Judge Adams,
"made ft good trade and he was anxious to know bis real per cent of
profit, so he consulted a school teacher.
"I bought n horse tho other day
for $2f> and sold It for $175; now,
what wns my per rent of profit?" he
asked  tbe teacher.
"Thai," replied the teacher, "waa
nol  profit; If was larceny."
"I thought you said there were flab
around here," said the disappointed
"There are," replied Farmer Corn-
tonsel, "but they nre experienced flah
Moreover, they're kind and considerate."
"I haven't hnd n nibble."

The sum ol $400,000 is being spent

The complex process ol filtration

London Correspondence — Lon lon
has lost one of its quaintest personalities in the death of Judge Willis,
who may be said to have occupied in
the British metropolis the place once
held in thc affections of New York by
the lamented Judge Duffy. Judge
Willis was a Loudon institution and
the newspapers in this big town are
poorer by his death. When news of
Mic lighter and more amusing kind
ran short, editors always turned to
thc reports from Judge Willis' court
to till the gap.
The judge waB a genial humorist, a
good deal of a philosopher, and by
no means a mountebank. He could
nut resist the temptation to crack a
joke or work off an aphorism, but
hia jokes were always kindly and hia
sayingfl generally had a good deal of
hard common sense. He was a self-
made man and never tired of saying
•in to the litigants who came before
him and of pointing a moral from
his own career.
He began life as a clerk hi a
wholesale dry goods house, and as
be often tnld hiB court audience he
saved money from the first. When
he cam d tlvo hundred dollars a year
'•■ ■ lived on two hundred dollars and
uud the oth'r three hundred, and
he iietl no patience with young men
.vim were sued before him for tailors
bills and othcr petty debts. "I never owed any one n penny in my life"
'.e often said. He wasn't ashamed
io toll how he did it either. He
walked to and from his work, six
miles, every dny, nnd he never went
to a theatre or any other place of
While he worked in the dry goods
nlore by day he read taw at night
and when he abandoned the yar.l
stick for the courts he soon was recognized as an uncommonly Bound
lawyer, He became a judgo in 1886
his court being one in which minor
civil actions were tried.
Here are some of his quaint sayings :
"No house is furnished unless tt
has children and a mail-cart in it.
"A good overcoat, if brushed and
properly taken care of, ought to last
seven years.
"1 have never met n policeman yet
who saw an accident.
"ff you err on the aide of benevolence it. does not. follow thnt you are
n fool.
"When 1 was a student, 1 kept a
partition between what. I was doing
and every other thought so that 1
•night, concentrate my attention nn
what I was doing. Hy that meaim
I Buccoodod,
"Don't sav dad. say father. It. Is
• me uf the most beautiful words In
the English language,
"It was not Intruded that there
should lie any worry in thin world,
if people obeyed a few rules.
"On tho whole, tho poor are happier thon tho rich right through tho
Judge Willis, although a Liberal In
politics was nothing If not conservative. The good old days of his boyhood were good enough for htm and
he had no patience with modern   in
ventions—he would have protested a-
gaiust calling them improvements.
For instance, he never used a telephone in his life and never ro;!e In
an underground railway or an automobile. He never gambled, never
borrowed money, never saw a horse
race, never read a Sunday newspaper, uever looked at a stock exchange
ticker tape, and he declared recently
that he was probably the only man
in England who never read a word
ahout the Crippen trial,
In spite of this apparently sour
and stern outlook on life Willis was
one of the kindliest of men. He
spent a lot of money helping poor
persons who were sued before him for
rent and similar debts, and a homily
from the bench of the folly of getting into debt often would be followed hy a quiet visit from the judge
anil a "loan" of enough to relieve
pressing necessities. -It was one of
his rules that if these "loans" were
repaid, aB they sometimcB were, to
put the money out again at once in
a similar wny.
In "Who's who," that English
work of reference in which the famous and would-be famous are allowed to write their own biographies,
Judge Willis gave bts recreations as
follows :
"Collecting books, both old and
new. walking hy the side of brook
and river, speaking to everybody he
meets and seeing how much there is
in others to be admired nnd loved."
It wns a nice little house, built
specially to the owner's plans, and
hnd everything up-to date, with a
few reminders of the good old ttavs.
Por instance, there was a inn-dial
plnced at the foot of the garden.
Uu thc first sunny dny the owner
compared his own reliable gold chronometer with Old Sol's timepiece and
found there was a difference of two
hours. Obviously tho figures on the
sun-dial had been misplaced. The
butlder was sent for, and arrived.
"Have a look at that sun-.iial a-
gain," said the owner, significantly ;
"it makes the time eleven a.m., and
as a matter of fact, the correct t'nu
Is one p.m.
The builder looked long and earnestly at his handiwork, and then
slapped his log.
"Ah !" he exclaimed with a .road
ring in hiB voice, "I see vot lt is,
ah. There's something wrong with
