Board of Trade Excursion
Over   300   visit   the  St.   Mary's   Prairie
The Garden of St. East Kootenay
Cranorook is the Centre of a Vast Agricultural District which was clearly demonstrated
by the Thousands of Acres of Grain, Mixed   Farming,   and   Fruit   seen
in  the  most   Florishing  Condition
The outing that the Hoard ol
Trade inaugurated on Thursday with
the generous assistance of tht: Auto
Association was a huge success. The
efforts that have been put forth of I
late to exemplify the value of the
tliatrlct of Cranbrook as uu agricul-;
tural centre, reached a climax wheu
some ,100 people, some of whom were
from the prairie provinces, as well as
townspeople, viewed the several ranches out on St. Maryjs prairie. To
say that almost everyone was surprised with the wonderful fertility
that is in tbe soil there, is no idle
boast, for, until a perm i. became \
personally acuuuinted with the products no one can form a true opinion
of the valuable material wc have
close at hand, and the wonderful
commercial value that lays ready to
be grasped by evory progressive man
whose ambitions nre directed in tbis
There werc eleven automobiles, all
owned by prominent Oranbrook citizens, put into commission to carry
oue pnrty of sight seers, and a special train was obtained trom the C. F\
R. to take the others, hy which same
250, or, in all, about 300 journeyed
toward Wycliffe and Ht. Mary's prairie to have demonstrated to tbem the
wonderful growth that can be produced and the quality of fruits, etc.
tbat can be raised in this district
One of tbe Prospector's representatives left Oranbrook with the auto- !
mobile section, and one of the tlrst
things remarked upon as we ran
through this beautiful country was
tbe wonderful strides that have been
made these last few months by the |
government road gnngs, providing excellent thoroughfares for the increas- '
lng traffic that is to be seen running
from Cranbrook and to Cranbrook j
from all over tbe distiict. This, in
itself, furnishes ample proof of the
confidence tbe authorities have that
tbe district is to he one of thriving
industries, and about to reap large
crops of the soil. This must all be
provided for by transit, and by the
aforesaid means ore the authorities
providing ways and means to combat with the certain increase of farmers and the various dealers iu land
After running over hill and dale,
and through long valleys of the best
farming lands we terminated our ride
at B. (-• Smith's ranch. The party
here seems to have been split up Into
several different sections under differ-
ent leaders that the end tor which '
thc outing was originally organized
could be bettor served. There were
ubout H> in our party when we started out under tbc leadership of Fred.
Itussell, a man well acquainted with,
and possessed of n thorough knowledge of tbe country we were to pass
through. As we walked ovei- the laud
and looked in the several directions
In turn Mr. Russell kindly explained
the different growths and the ninny
various products of tbe llelds, drawing our attention llrst to the large
productiveness and the results that
are being obtained from the various
sections of Mr. Smith's ranch.
Here we saw llelds of potatoes.
oats and wheat, also an orchard that
would he hard to heat In many/of
the older portions of Canada, nnd
never ln B. C. Leaving here we came
to Mr. A. Graham's ranch, where wo
again H»w a duplicate of the wonderful fertility that we bad seen In Mr.
Smith's iu the llrst plane, potatoes,
oats and wheat were again In prominence; close by this could be seen
whole llelds of beautiful hay and
timothy already cut stacked waiting
to he haiilod to the market.
Passing along In our circuit for our
ultimate resting place was Wycllffo,
where the remainder of thn party
was to be met, we paused Tuylor
Bros, llelds of pQttttOBB, oats, wheat
and in this case some splendid fields
of rye.
Dr. Hall's, or rather tbe lands tbat
werc bis, but that have recently been
bought from him by Mr. West, we
saw as iu the previous llelds, wheat,
oats, rye, and potatoes with the addition of barley, in all their splendid
Our party did not visit H. H. Mc-
Clure's ranch, but we bad explained
to us the results that he was obtaining in the several noted products
wheat, oats, barley, timothy and alfalfa; Andrew Pietre is another of the
ranches that is specializing in wheat,
oats and potatoes.
Upon our return we learned of the
wonderment that had taken hold of
some of the strangers to this part of
the country, upon seeing the products
of George Ttsdale's labors. Here bad
been seen the Holds of oatB, wheat,
barley and potatoes, but what most
astonished the visitors was tho rich
fruit, its largeness and delicious
taste. Here tbe kindness of the ranchers might be mentioned, as at every
place wo visited an open Invitation
was freely and courteously gtven to
"take and eat." The invitation being accepted, practical proof was had
of the richness and beauty of tbe
fruit partaken.
Otis Staples, of Wycliffe, hns at
present under direct cultivation over
600 acres. His hay llelds producing
one and a half tons, or a little over,
per acre. Like tbe rest of the ranch-
era ell along the prairie, Mr. Staples
ts producing wheat, oata, timothy,
and alfalfa, as well as vegetables of
every description, only on a much
larger scale thau the other ranchers.
Special mention might be given to
the fact tbat the products are of a
genuine value when we say that the
whole of tbe crop of the Staples
ranch, outside of that which he will
use for himself,  is spoken for.
Mr. Staples planted this spring a
field of alfalfa that will yield a splendid crop this year, this is moat unusual, as never has it been demonstrated that alfalfa would yield a
crop the first season.
Clearly has this outing shown that
the fruit and mixed fanning possibilities of this district iB In no way underestimated, but rather underrated.
The practical proof of this is too
clearly shown by tbe several references before referred to—R. 0. Smith's
George Tisdale's H. H. McClure's,
and also J, Hold's orchards. This,
all possible purchasers of land Bhould
take serious notice of, it is a fact,
nml proof Is directly at band.
In reference to fruit-trees, when the
question is asked; "What (runs are
best?" "What have been trlod?" re*
commendation is given to ni pies,
pears, cherries, etc, also small fruits
of every variety.
\ The laud of this district was previously turned only by the disl, and
good results were obtained, (bis
atone should convince n.iy y sslblo
unbeliever of the wonderful and immense productive value of the still;
but uow, when more modern methods
are brought to hour, there fs no estimating the productiveness nud
wealth possessed by this rich and
fertilizing soil.
| When the party returned home in
the evening everyone in their several
ways tried to show their appreciation
to the originators of this movement
for the pleasure shown and the lessons received.
No more doubts can rest In anyone's mind, or stnnd iu the way of a
person recommending a friend or
stranger to this productive country,
of which Cranbrook la tbe metropolis, the centre of the finest agricultural and fruit growing country In British Columbia.
The Board of Trade excursion to
Wycllfle and the Ht. Mary's Prairie
was a most pronounced success. Over
260 people comprised the party tbat
vent by train.  The flrst stop    was
made at Wycliffe, where a transfer of
locomotives was made, and through
the courtesy of Mr. Otis Staples, tbe
Shay locomotive of the lumber company was hooked ou to the string of
five cars for the trip over the fertile
lands of the Prairie.
The Prospector seut out two representatives with the party, one with
the automobiles, the other by train.
It was the writer's duty to report
that portion of the district In the
vicinity of Wycliffe.
Wycliffe is a small town situated on
the St. Mary's river about seven
miles north of Cranbrook. The principle business is lumbering, and the
mills of the Staples Lumber Co. are
located here. The Staples Co. is one
of the largest mills in tho province,
and at present are cutting an average of 200,OUO feet of lumber every
24 hours. This company is sending
out from 12 to 111 cars of lumber
Mr. Staples, president of the Company, bas ahout tiOO acres of land
under cultivation. Along the river
bank there are some forty acres of
potatoes that are looking exceedingly
well. A patch of about tive acres are
planted with cabbage, with a couple
more acres in onions. Upon the
prairie land overlooking the town
arc immense fields of grain suitable
for feed. Among them are some 40
acres of oats, 40 to R0 acres of cow
feed, acres of peas, together with
■about five acres of millet. Also some
10 acres of alfalfa which was planted
:this spring,  which  is  a Bight worth
going to see, just because many have
said that alfalfa will uut grow on
these prairie lands. This statement
U easily disposed of by a visit to
tliis field. Witb hundreds of acres
sawn to grass, feed, etc., also
Vegetables of all kinds,  Mr.  Staples
as demonstrated that the soli      of
t. Mary's prairie is fertile and capable of producing immeuse crops, and
tbat the rainfall ol the district Is
ufneient without any further irrigation.
The crops raised and now maturing
by Mr.  Staples will be sufficient to
upply the town of Wycliffe with
vegetables, also to furnish feed for
Ithe large number of horses employed
■by the company.
Mr. Staples has also contracted
with Mr. IS. C. Smith, whereby he
wlll cut hay from about 1000 acres of
wild land, which will yield about a
tou to a ton aud a half per ucre.
Tbis article would not he complete
if mention was not made of the Wycliffe hotel. Harry Kdwards Is the
proprietor, and it is one of the beat
hotels in the diatrict. It Is up to
date,   and  many  of  the ladies   wbo
ttended the excursion were loud In
their praises of the hospitality of
Mr. Edwards and his housekeeper.
] From a strictly business point of
: iow the Board of Trade excuraion
was a most complete success. It has
demonstrated that '.Ue prairie lands
of the St. Mary's prairie are fertile,
and that fruit growing and mixed
farming can be carried on on a commercial basis.

Dr. Hall Opens New Dental
To he exact it was on the 16th of
March, L909, when Dr. H. E. Hall
rented tbe rooms over Mr. B. H.
Short's paint store. Dr. Hall at
this time was a complete stranger to
the majority of the people of Oran-

Home Aspect
Of course that aspect will be aa
many sided as the conditions of
tbose who make the homes. To those
absolutely free in tbe matter of
choice, Crnnhrook, on lirst. sight
might not offer us many favorable aspects us some other larger cities.
Cranbrook has a way of growing upon you. It docs not show all its
lines of beauty ut one glance, any
more than does a beautiful face. Nature has done much, put has done

i   One great desideratum for business
man, man of letaure, and working

i water. Cranbrook's supply comes
from a source laying up between two
mountain spurs, about three and a
■half miles from town. It is brought
\ by gravity pressure to the city, and
laid Into every home at a reasonable
cost per year, tio soft is the water
that it cau be, and is used, for
uny and every home purpose, and so
abundant that 2f»,0ti0 could use It

this account, some day in tho not

laboring man, Crnnbrook with Its

We turned with oue Impulse* uttering uu exclamation ot horror.
We all stood there, shivering, our

Rouletabille was (be most terrified
of us all.
Matton!, who wus passing through

We rushed Into the square tower,
the door of which still stood opeu.
We entered in n t»>dy the beUrooiu of
Old Hob, passing through 'he empty
silting room. I'he Injured mau was
lying ijuletly on his bed within, aud

Mere Beruier. Koth -.vere as calm rmd

Home calamity. She bad beard uothing; she kuew uothing. Hut she rushed Into tbe ulr like a streak of lightning and went straight, us though Impelled by some hidden force, directly
tc Ihe place where the bodv wns lying.
And now It was her groans tlmt
founded on the nir under tbe terrible
mn of tbe Midi over the bleeding
corpse. We tore tbe shirt from tbe
dead man's breast and found a gaping
wound just ubove the heart.
We looked for t he wen pon everywhere without finding It. The mnn

.Who was he? What we did not know
Bernier bad known before he died,
ind it was perhaps because of tbut
knowledge tbat his life bad been forfeited. "Frederic Larsan!" We repeated tbe lust words of the dying
mun In fear und trembling.
Suddenly on the threshold of the
postern we saw Prince Unlltcb, a
newspaper in his bund. He was reading us be cume toward us. Ills ulr
was jovial, and his face wore u smile.
Ilu) Mine. Kdiib rushed up to bim, I
snatched the paper from bis hands,

Mrs. Itance fairly snapped out the

wanted to search through the square
tower, the Tower of tbe Hold, the new
castle, all the dependencies of the

the assassin must still be concealed.
The reporter rtfiouk his bend dreurlly

Rouletabille and I knew only too well
tbat any search would be In vain. No,

Col. Patterson Tells of an Experianct
In    "ast   Africa.
At our next camping.place on the
Guaso Nyiro, in British Kast Africa.
our fisherman had a very narrow es
cape indeed, and aa all the eireum
stances connected with it were rao*1
extraordinary aud dramatic, 1 musl
relate bhe entire adventure.
Un this particular morning 1 happened to be riding alu-uJ ol the "sn-
ia i'i" on tbe look out lor a suitable
camping place, wnen 1 suddenly came
upon an impula and, knowing tbat we
were in want of some camp meat, I
mule a hasty shot at him as lie tied
uway  through  tiie scrub.
My bullet struck bim and knocked
him bend over heels, but before 1
could reach him he picked himself up
and made Iur the river. I fired again,
bit mi.-aed, jmd then ran to the river
tank, fully expecting to see bim mak-
i.'g his way across, but there was no
trace of him to be discovered anywhere. I wus very much astonished at
this, as 1 could not understand how a
beast wounded so badly could get
away so quickly; but after searching in
t very direction I gave him up and
tumul my attention to the selection
ol our camping-ground, which I chose
close by, under the shade uf some
huge trees.
As soon as tbe tents were pitched,
Nyumbu went down to the river to fish
us usual and was just about to step
off tbe bank on to whut be look tu be
u log. when the apparent log gave a
slight movement, and he saw thut
it wus the back ot a crocodile,
The man wus luckily uble to draw
buck, nud rushed up the slope, calling
out, "Uwana, mainba, mamba!"
("Master a crocodllel a crocodile!").
We all happened to be close at hand,
so 1 seized my rifle and ran down to
the river, and, seeing the hideous creature's back close under the bunk,
quickly put a bullet into it.
Instantly there was a terrific heaving and writhing in tbe water, which
the reptile lashed about in all directions, though In* seemed unable to get
away. Seeing this Abbudi ran down
to tne water s edge, stepped oil to a
bough which projected out over the
river, uml thrust bis spear with all his
might deep into the creature's back.
Tlie moment the crocodile lelt the
steel he twisted himself round on his
tail with indescribable speed aud vie-
lousness, snapped at the spear, whipped it clean out of Abbudi'§ band, as
we.l as i ui ol bis own back, ami flung
it yards away to the bottom of the
river. ,
1 never in all my life suw such an
astonished and crestfallen expression
an appeared on Abbudi's (ace, aud indeed il wus no wonder, ior the rapidity
villi which the brute bad turned on
him waa incredible. His position was
now highly dangerous, but before the
crocodile could whip round again to
mnk- a second grill), 1 put another
couple of bullet- into his spine, thus
rendering him quite helpless,
In the miilst ol all thin excitement,
and while the crocodile was lushing
about ami snapping his vice-like
jaws, Mrs. It., forgetting that she wns
-,lil an iuvulul, jumped on to the
branch beside Abbudi to get a better
view ol what was going on. Tbis was
ii most unwise proceeding, but fortunately the reptile was too badly hit
to be able lu do any damage,
An soon as he wus quite dead we
bud a rope fastened round hlin, and
witli Lie- aid of a dozen willing hands
hauled bun un out ol lhe river. The
most extraordinary part of the whole
occurrence then  happened, for  when
ll.il     b.llll
him tho bull of a fruthly-eatcn impalal
There wa" un doubt i.but il wus lhe
one which I hml BhoL, and which bad
disappeared su mysteriously aflei making Its way to the river bank. It was
no wonder thai I could not Ilml him,
»s  he must even  then  havo been  in
the mow  ol the i'r dile, whloh, ol
course, bad cnughl lum uml dragged
him under ni Poon ns be attempted
to struggle across lbe stream.
Alter' considerable trouble Ahhudi
recovered his spear from the river bed,
but found that the soft blade bud been
benl almost to u right angle by the
crocodile when he grabbed it out of
bis band.-From "In tbe.drip of tbe

The Woman Who Played Bridge a

table. They congratulated themselves I
j and lln tbe secrecy of confidential bed-
room chats at nlgbtl eacb otber on tba
deftness witb which they hnd managed
to hold aloof from the cheating one
\ and her play and at tbe same time
prevent their host aud hostess from
noting the fact One night, however,
their wrath rose at the sight of tbe
distress tbis unscrupulous little per
son was causing a young girl who was
her opponent The two wise ladiea
watched the small, Innocent aeemlng
dame cheat time after time and win.
Ths girl waa very unsophisticated.
Sbe continued playing, although ber
face grew white and drawn, for abe
was losing more than she could afford
Beveral tlmea she attempted to leave
the table, but eacb time the other three
players persuaded ber to play on. At
length tbe game ended, and the girl
stood up tbe loser ot a sum that ran
well Into three figures. Like a thorough little sportswoman, ahe made no
ontcry about her losaea, but the other
two—the lookers-on—knew what tbey
meant to her. Tbey knew tbe girl,
■nd they knew ber family, a great
though oot a wealthy one, one wblcb

Invitation and readily accepted.
Both of tbem accompanied ber to
'he room of the one guest whose rooms
Ity farthest from tbose of tbe other
members of the houae party, and something very, very like tba following
took place:
"Ton are a cheat" one haughtily
•ontemptuous dame asserted ll soon
U ths bedroom door was locked on
their victim. "We, Lady Barbara and
myself, have watched you on several
occasions. For the sake of your poor,
unfortunate husband's name we bave
remained silent, but tonight was too
Ouch. First of all, you wlll return to
oa all you have won from poor little
Laura tonlgbt and also give back to us
ber 1. O. U.'s.   We Insist"
After a feeble and frightened protest
ths money waa bnuded over, aud the
pieces of paper signed by tbe little
dupe were quickly placed on tba red
hot coals and burned to ashes.
"Now we will aee that Laura receives
the money wblcb you fleeced her out
of, and also we will guarantee tbat
from ua sbe will never learn the truth
No; yon cannot go yet" (aa tbe terrt
fled little madam turned toward tbe
door), "and lt ls useless your attempting to escape, for I bave tbe key of
tbe door. Painful as lt ta to us, wa
have determined to teach you a severe
lesson. We are going to beat you. If
yon scream you may attract the attention of some other guests; If they
corns and demand sn entrance they
■ball be admitted: If tbey Inquire the
reason of such drastic treatment we
shall tell tbem the truth. I abould ad
visa yon not to scream. Now, are you
ready!" Witbonl more ado one lady
held the wriggling, sobbing small per
son, while the other administered a
sound and well deserved whipping.
Ths little lady did not desert ths
houae party; ber two chastlsers were
sweetly amiable to ber for the remainder of the visit and, lo tbeir da

Many and varied are the stories ol

most that in all the earlier settled
districts ol Ontario there are treasures buried to tind which would mean
eternal opulence Vo the fortunate
Under. Many of these stories are
undoubtedly myths, but it is equally
true that a goodly number are l,us«l
upon more or less authentic facts, s,,
thut a story of a lost treasure that in
itself evidences a considerable degree
nd is substantial.

About  midway  between tlie town

The  story  goei  that during  the   war

bay  afforded  shelter  to  a Canadian
schooner while engaged in curry gold

as they dared and commenced to bom

tain, fearing lest they might land and
attack him ou shore, thought it best
to unload his cargo und endeavor to

we now arc childless, for we are ever
mourning the loss of our son aud our
daughter twenty years ngo. My girl
would have been forty now, and \
ahould bave had grownup grnudcbll-
dreu around me."
By dint of perseverance inspired
by the momentary feat of assault at
the hands of the enemy, the tusk wa<
finally accomplished and the treasure
temporarily secured in concealment
Darkness began to fall over the laud,
which added security to their position.
I since it afforded more complete con
cealmeut .and because of the fact that
tbe Americans, when there was En
sufficient light to enable them to di'
rect their tire, simply sailed away,
to the great delight of the defenceless
] Canadians. Anxious to reach York
and the protection of its fort, as soon
i us they felt assured that the enemy
had abandoned the attack, they be
| gait the work of reloading prepura-
I lory to continuing their voyage, It
'■ is not bard to believe that the task
' was most difficult, considering thai
: all was absolute darkness by now and
the nature of the ground over which
they had to carry the kegs of gold,
nor is it nt nil improbable thul, aa
the story goes, one of the kegs wus
dropped during the hai,tiling from the
small bout up to the side of the
schooner. Means were not at hand to
recover it, and indeed hud they possessed facilities it might have been
impossible to locate it and extricate it
from the mucky bottom of the little
bay. So, having finished loading,
they weighed anchor nnd were soon
glad to be ouce more on the open lake
and on a fair way to a place of safety.
Chiefly through one of the crew,
who wus on the spot and saw the
keg drop into thc water, a William
Medium, has the story been handed
down. The buy lias been long since
emptied ot watcr by reason of the lowering of Lake Ontario aud the deposit
of sediment, but it is not known that
the treasure bas ever been recovered.
Many have sought in vain und some
have made tbe spot the mecca of their
financial peregrinations. Divining
rods and various devices huve been
used in the endeavor, and the appearance presented by many of these
treasure-hunters working in the light
of a lantern ut the deud of night is
extremely ghost-like. A number of
cannon balls huve been picked up
in thc vicinity, both by those engaged in the quest and by farmers working in the fields nearby, but the nest

is more apt to be encountered thau

Nokomis   Likely   to   be   a   Divisional   Point   on   Two   Railways
It Is claimed that the Canadian Pacific has expended over iiOfiUO et StraaBburg; thirty-two milea
south ol Nokomis, in endeavoring to secure an adequate supply ol water to enable It to make Strassburg
a divisional point. It ls understood that sufficient water has not yet been obtained al Strassburg, and
lt Is being rumored that the Canadian Paciflc probably will make Nokomis a divisional point on Its
Pheasant Hills line.
The extension of the Canadian Northern through Nokomis will assure tlie future of this rapidly
growing new town as one ol the important distributing paints in Western Canada. It is not only possible, but very probable tbat Nokomis will also be a divisional point on the Canadian   Northern.     The
Canadian Northern must have a divisional point at or near Nokomis and as an abundant supply of pure
water at a divisional point is essential, it is believed that Nokomis advantages in this respect wi,l not
lie overlooked.
But the future of Nokomis does not depend upon its being made a divisional point on either the Canadian Pacific or the Canadian Northern. Its varied natural advantages and the fact tbat It will be
served by three Tranecontlnental railways practically guarantee its rapid growth into au important

Kootenay Valley
In the Kootenay valley there are
thousands of acres of vacant land;
there Is land unexcelled for farming
purposes, vast tracks of timber
lands, and large areas with mineral
Indications. Southeast Kootenay is
nut entirely a miniug couutry; its
mineral resources are certainly uot
fully developed, owing to lack of
transportation facilities, yet in spite
of this fact there are a thousand meu
constantly employed in the big silver-
lead mines. These men with their
families demand foudstufls, and at
this time a large majority of tbe
farm and dairy produce consumed is
imported from tbe Northwest Territories. Farmers are wanted throughout tbe whole valley. High cash
prices are paid for fresh eggs, milk,
cream, butter and cheese, and garden
truck finds a ready market. Southeast Kootenay presents opportunities
tbat are equalled lu no other undeveloped agricultural district.
Mining is yet in its infancy. Some
portions of tbe district are practically unexplored, and mining experts do
not attempt to estimate the mineral
wealth that may still lay bidden beneath the surface. Lumbering is progressing rapidly, but there are boundless tracts of the finest varieties of
tamarac, fir, spruce and pine. Numerous sawmills and wood-working
factories have been located during
the past few years and there Is a
ready demand for all forest products.

Briefly we remind yuu that ancient
Babylon wus bu.lt on the river Euphrates; that she hud impregnable
walls, that the river ran through the
midst of the city, and the great galea
of brass spanned the river as a protection against assaults of au enemy
from that (punter. The name of the
city was attached to a large area of
country outside of it, for which is
served as tbe capital. Indeed, at iti*
zenith Babylon was mistress of the
then civilized world - the first Universal Umpire.
We remind you of the captivity, first
of the ten tribes of Israel, nud later
on nl tin- remaining two tribes or
kingdom called Judah. The method of
Bubylon was to scatter the Israelites
amongst the Babylonians, and through
tlr r earthly interests to amalgamate
them as part and parcel of Babylonia.
This condition of things lasted until
the lull ol Bubylon before its conqueror, Cyrus.
The (juneral gained his victory in a
remarkable manner, while tlie Babylonian*., assured of their security, were
revelling at a banquet. Although thc .
crisis came suddenly, the preparation
had been long in progress. The sol- j
diers ol Cyrus, under his direction, !
had digged a canal of considerable
depth ready to drain off the water uf
tl.! river as sunn as the necessary connection was made. When the canal
waa in readiness tho connection witli
the river wa-. speedily made and the
wub*r flowed rapidly Into the new
channel, leaving the bed of the river
under tho great brazen gales, on both
Bides of thu city, au open roadway,
through which inarched the army of
Cyrus. Suddenly, at an unexpected
moment, the boastful city, the proud
Bubylon, was captured.
Then it wus that Cyrus, tlie victorious general, gave the command which
granted liberty to every Israelite carried captive thither, to return to his
own land. Additionally, assistance
was rendered lu all who desired to return, and lhe golden vessels pertaining to the worship of Uud in the temple were sent buck. But strange to say

Tbe Book of Revelation, the book
of symbols, tlie last message ol our
ascended Redeemer to His Church
through the Apostle John, was written long eenturies after literal Babylon perished. Its reference tu Babylon, therefore, can be viewed only in
the light of symbolism. As already
suggested, many of the prophetic utterances seem far too strong tu be
applied to liters] bubvluu and her
Indeed, while speaking directly of
Babylon aud her (all at tne hands of

Now, however, the message is. "Babylon is fallen, is fallen (sentenced lo

Indeed, tiie in t: mat ion is that the

is particularly explained that all the
grtat, the rich, the mighty, the infiu
■■ntial of earth will mourn lhe catastrophe of her fall. Only the saintly
few will recognize its true import and
rejoice; as We read, "Alas' that great
city that was clothed in tine linen

with guid ami precious stones and
pearls! Por in one hour so great
riches la come to naught. • • * What
city ia like unto this grt-at city I Auu
they cast dust on their heads aud
cried, weeping and wailing, saying,
Alas, alas, that great city!* (Revelation xvtii, 16-19).
But. on the contrary, another class ,
rejoice=, as we read:
"Rejoice over her, thou heaven, aaid
ye Holy Apostles and Prophets; for
God had avenged you on her. And I
neard a voice ot muvn people in neav-
en. saying, Alleluia! Salvation, and
glory, and honor, and power, unto the
Lord our Uod; fur true and righteous
uie His judgments; for He hath judged
the great Harlot which did corrupt
the earth with her fornication, aud i
huth avenged the blood id His servants at her hand" (Revelation xviii,
20, and xix, 1, 2).
It seems very clear, my dear brethren, thut many of us were once part
and parcel of this great Babylou-—this
great system of confusion by which
tlie Divine character has been so traduced through misinterpretations of
the Divine Word. I am aware that
Catholics declare that Protestants are
this Babylou system; aud 1 am award
that Protestants claim that Catholics
are this  Bubylon system.
To my understanding of the Divine
Wurd, both ure right! Babylou is the
Mother system and the various sects
of Protestantism ure the daughters,
ami the name Babylou is a lauiily
name. It belongs to the mother system tirst, and to ull the daughters uf
the system now, as well. Improper association with the world, its governments and systems, ia a crime to
which they are parties. The "daughters" have followed the example ol
the "mother." aud more or less are
coming back into sympathy with her
iu all particulars. None of them have
maintained the proper attitude of virginity aud separateness (rum the

their own erroneous theories. The fall
ol their present institutions will be a
startling blow lv them, f r they verily
believe them to be Christ's Kingdom—
aud style them such—Christendom.
The fall of Bubylon will astonish the
entire world, so complete is the illusion that Christendom represents the
throne and government of Messiah
amongst men. And, be it remembered,
t ' vast majority in all -ie various
sects and denominations of Christen
dom are worldly people who have no

Lord Knollys, tiie King's private

Koyul Household for many years, and
the association of his family with the
reigning house dates back for several
Au ancestor of the present peer was
Treasurer ol the Household to Queen
Elizabeth, and was raised to the peerage eventually, becoming the Earl ot
Banbury, a title uow extinct. Lord
Knollys' father wus General Sir Willium Thomas Knollys, who likewise
h-'d various oflices in the Royal
Household, and was also at one time
Usher of the Bluck Rod.
Ixird Knollys became private secretary to the late King in 1870, and con*
tinucd his Majesty's adviser until his
d .;ath. During all those years the
qualities of a prince, who was
acknowledged as the most tactful gentleman in Europe, were reflected in
the courtesy, the patience, and the
tact of his servant. The barony which
Lord Knoylls holds was conferred iu
the year of the late King's coronation. He is one of the few peers who
have not taken the trouble to acquire
a grant of arms, and the record of his
peerage contains this entry: "The
stamp duty ou this peerage patent
was remitted" — a reminder of the
faithful services lor which the peerage
waa bestowed.
h used to be a joke at Marlborough
House that if Lord Knollys, who will
be seventy-four in July, was awakened in the middle of the night by an
inquiry as to whut the King would
do on a certain day in the following
week, he would at once name the engagements.

What is the connection between the
Moiiiiioii Church in Canada and the
Cuuruli in Utah? Tlie Cauadiau territory is treated exactly as il it were
part of Utah. Under the president,
councillors, apostles and other olticers
of the Utah Church are tne quorums
of elders and quorums of teachers, uud
the quorum of deacons. Where the
quorums are is called a Stake, lu
Canada there are two Stakes, the Alberta Stake, extending from Spring
Coulee to the international boundary,
aud the Taylor Stake, including the
territory north from Spring Coulee.
The order is duplicated through the
Stakes and through every auxiliary organization. There is the btake president and his two councillors, tne quorum of twelve, called the High Council,
the quorum of seventy, the quorums of
eiders and priests, teachers and deacons, lu the two Canadian Stakes are
twenty-three wards, each again with a
separate aud complete organization
from a bishop and two councillors
down to the deacons again, all thc
Ward organizations being under the
immediate supervision ii the Stake
presidency. Buys irom twelve to fifteen years of age are deacons, from
fifteen to eighteen teachers, from eign*

What Did ths Chauffeur Say?
The chauffeur of a prominent Toronto business man tells a good story
concerning an occasion when his expectations didn't by any means come
true. Several years ago he was one
of a number of chauffeurs who were
taking from Hamilton to Toronto a
number of delegates to a Y.M.C.A.
convention in Toronto. The delegate*
had gone on a little trip to the Am*
bitious City and were anxious to get
bock in good time for the convention.
All the automobiles were having
trouble, and much time waB being
lost. A man who was especially anxious to get to Toronto in the evening
said to the chauffeur whu figures in
this story: "Hurry all you can. Keep
going as much as possible irrespective
ot trouble, and I'll Ux you up. when
we get to Toronto."
The chauffeur followed instructions,
and when the party reached Toronto
the anxious passenger gave him — a
reserved front row seat for that
night's session of the convention.
Alberta Farmers Prudent.
A writer in a western paper, who is
perhaps more long-sighted than the
average westerner engaged in agricultural business, points out that the
Fiovince of Alberta has uo need to
feel hurt by repeated criticisms ol
her puny wheat exportation wheu
compared with that ul Saskatchewan.
The farmers in Alberta, he says,
realise the advantages that flow from
feeding grain to live stock instead of
exporting it, and they ore inclined to
fiuy as much attention to mixed faming as to grain production. There is
no room to quarrel with that tendency.—Montreal Standard.

Province   of Alberta   Nat   Cold   and
Bleak  as Many Imagine.
Eighteen hours nf sunshine, brilliant, life-giving sunshine, tempered
by a delicious, cool breeze from the
Pacific. That's what constitutes the
longest day in Alberta, the Canadian
province which lies at latitude ft-'l
degrees 30 minutes, far above Newfoundland, above the island of Anti*
costi, more than twice as far north
of Montreal or Halifax, N.S.. as Halifax is nurth of New York. It lies
level with the foot of Hudson Buy
and nearly to the middle of Lahrudor.

Dancing and Oratory.
There is a certain member of the
present House of Commons—for obvious reasons he shall be nameless—
who is a good deal of a gay Lothario.
You see him, day ulter day. perched
up in the Speaker's Gallery beside
some fair one, his head gallantly
bent, his whole attitude one of respectful  admiration and devotion.
Among his other accomplishments,
and the one he holds in highest regard, is that of dancing. He has a
lofty reputation for this, and practices it on every possible occasion-
incidentally, he does it very, very
Now, once upon a time there was
a big dance in Ottawa, one of those
gorgeous affair.- that are fairly common In an official centre like Canada's capital. Member X was invited, and had a fine time. It so happened that several newspaper correspondents were there, too, and one
of them heard a lot about X's ability
in the Terpslchorean line. Copy was
scarce, he made a little story about
it, and next day forgot the whale
thing. Chance so directed things
that the next day X had to make a
speech about something or other. It
was rather a good speech, and the
papers gave him plenty of space.
When this happens it sometimes happens that the man who gets the
notice buys a number of copies of the
paper which he thinks has treated
his speech in the best way.
X bought papers all right, he
bought one hundred copies of the
paper which had printed the little
eulogy of his dancing. Here's the
beauty of it though, he ordered one
hundred copies of the issue containing the description of his dancing,
not the one that told about his
speech. It wasn't any mistake either.
He was ten times as proud of that
little story about the hit he made on
the ballroom floor as he was about
the big one on his success on the
floor of the House.

A Tour of Inspection.
The Dominion Department of Mines

metallic mineral products, ln a report by Howell Frechette, it is stated
that Canadian industries import large
quantity of many non-metallic mineral, raw or partly manufactured,
while the greater part ol Canadian
production of these is exported. The
Department proposes to send Mr. Frechette on a tour of discovery In Canadian manufacturing districts, to
learn what minerals are used. Certain points in the United States will
also be visited with the obiect of
studying the manner in which Can-
dian minerals are treated before they

Tbe injurious control of the United
Stilton   Reef Trust over  tbis  country
would be one of the most dangerous
outcomes ol the   reciprocity   agree*
meut if it should be adopted between
the States nud Camilla.   Particularly
would   the   results   Of   the   Heef   Trust
regime be dire to Western   Canada.
The history of tbe Iteef Trust in the
United Stnles law courts shows that
"the big six" packing companies of
Chicago have almost entire control of
the producing regions ol tha Western
The United States Iteef Trust is

under tlie joint management of Armours, Swifts and Morris'; Swarf,*
child & Sulzberger and Cudnhy &

subsidiary packing companies, and
these l'i tentacles stretch over the

States, feeding on the fat of the laud

Nearly every year tbe Beef Trust
is brought into court for breaking the
Sherman nnti-trust aw. There is a
case in progress now in the District
Court nt Chicago against the Reef
Trust for having been accused of being nn illegal combination iu restraint
of trade, lt is said the Beef Trust
knows no law. Iu previous cuses evidence bas shown that 98 per cent,
of alt the cattle killed in leading
western centres were slaughtered by
the Trust, which it was also shown
controlled 75 per cent, of the meat
trade in New York, B5 per cent, in
Boston, 85 per cent, in Providence,
aud in a number of otber important
cities from 50 to 00 per cent.
In view of this indisputable evidence, it is not difficult to understand
the depleted condition of thc rural
districts of the Eastern States. Note
that 1)5 per cent, of the raw supply
in the West is killed by the Trust,
which also controls from 50 to 05 per
cent, of the meat trade in the large
eastern cities. The Beef Trust has
thus robbed tlie Eastern farmer of his
rightful heritage, the home market
in the adjacent large industrial centres. Tlie west nnd the Kast have
been hound together in the tight
grasp of two tentacles, which have
shot out greedily from the huge cen-
trnl body ut Chicago. If but nnother
tentacle could be extended northwurd
and coiled around the producing regions of Canada, what rich blood
could be sucked into the heart of
tbis massive creature.
Tbe Beef Trust exerts its enormous
control by getting hold of the railroads nnd then monopolizing sources
of raw supply. President Ripley, of
the Santa Fe Railroad, in 1005, before
the Interstate Commerce Commission
said: "The packing house business
today is concentrated in so few hands
that this fact, together with the keen
competition between railroads, practically makes it possible for them to
dictute rotes for dressed beef and
packing house products." The Beef
Trust each dny ships out of Chicago
600 cars of packing house products.
Armours alone control over n dozen
car lines; they own over 14,000 re-
frigerutor cars representing nn investment of $14,000,000 and the owners of these cars besides enjoying
special rates, also draw a rental from
the railroads for every one of these
cars than run over their lines. Swift
& Co. for the fiscal yenr ending
January, 1009, did $'240,000,000 worth
of business. The largest Canadian
packing house does n business of
about $5,000,000 n yeur. Put both
concerns on a free market; would it
he n fair deal?
Dressed meats and meat products of
different kinds enme into Canada
from the United States lost year,
ending March, 1911, to the extent of
over $.1,000,000. The great proportion
of these imports came from the Beef
Trust and in face of the duties. Reduce the tariff on packing house pro*
ducts, as Reciprocity proposes to do,
and give the Reef Trust free access
to our natural products, and you
simply perpetuate and aid a gross
evil ns well as imperil the best interests of Canada.
How Their Salaries Ara Paid al tht
Present Tlmt.
Should the bill for tbe payment ot
$2,000 a year to member* of Parliament go through, it will mean tiiat,
in the majority of cases, the income
of Labor M.P.'s will be considerably
increased. At the present time Labor
M.P.'s are paid by Trade Union* for
their Pnrliamentcry duties, usually
at the ran* of only $1,000 a year. In
aonK* cases, however, the unions supplement this $1,000 by a special allowance, varying trom $1,000 to I1.2W.
It U proposed, however, ti stop this
special payment when salaries are
provided from Btate funds.
There is no doubt that the cost ot
maintaining members of Parliament
has proved no small strain on the
funds of the Trude Unions throughout
iho country. As u matter of fact, it is
estimated tbut the pnrty headquarters
i* paying at the rule of $40,1)00 a year
in M.P.'s salaries, und iu addition
they have spent an average ol $-50,
ooo on euch of the last three general
elections. This expenditure bus hlth
■rto been met by a levy of twopence
per member per annum ou the total
membership of the aril Hated societies!
md it may be recalled that it wu*
this compulsory levy which, in 1009
led to the now famous Osborne judg
ment, when it wus decided by the
courts thut such levies were Illegal,
A newspaper correspondent, writing
to The Times, mentions that when the
Labor party was first formed the levy
whs one penny per beud, but it was
tuuud ueeessury tu incivuse it in 1007
Io the present figure, it is sUgK'^d
thut if Labor members ure paid $2,000
a year by the state, the levy might
aguin be reduced to oue penny. It
is, however, unlikely tbut this will be
doue, for the simple reusoti thut payment of members will naturally afford
the Labor party un opportunity lor
increasing tne number of Labor candidates at future elections.
There is one fact regarding the
Labor M.P. of which the public is not
generally awure. At the present time
most of the unions claim the right to
tuke their Parliamentary representatives away frorr their duties nt Westminster from time to time to attend
to organizing work for the unions, and
unless this practice is stopped the
Labor party may be accused of receiving salaries for its M.P.'s for such
work in connection witli tbeir unions
instead of political work at Westminster. It is proposed, however, to stop
this practice, against which protests
have been unde by the party leaders

could repeat all of Gibbon's foot notes

King, from cucumber. The farmer
thought he had "stumped" the scholar, but Porson immediately accepted
and won the challenge.

concluded, "which is a cucumber."

King Edward Was the First Bearded
Monarch In 300 Years.
| It was often remarked at the acces-
' non ot Kdwurd VII. that be was tha
tir-t bearded King tor nearly three
hundred yeur*. The tll-tated King
1 Charles I. was his immediate predecessor in this respect, and he came to
thi? Ihorne iu ltii*5, whereas the lata
King succeeded his mother in 1901.
Churles was the last of the Kings for
a very long time to represent the
Elizabethan or Shikespeareau tashiou
uf the pointed heard uud to wear his
own hair on his head.
Cromwell, the uncrowned Kiug ot
Euglund, certainly wore no wig like
the long line uf his successors; but,
though he wore his own liuir, he wore
it pretty long. Churles 11. wore a
tremendous wig, curled in a hundred
ringlets, but tlie only hair on his face
was u slight moustache. None of his
successors until Edward VII boasted
even that. Both beards and mous*
laches went clean out ol fashion, aud
James 11., Willinm UL, all the
(Jeorges, nud William IV. were just
as cleanshaven us ull the rest of their
masculine subjects. There was a time
when a beard hud not L-en seeti iu
England within living memory I
lu Wearing a beurd Charles 1. followed the example of hli lather

wus; for, like our late King, this
much-married monarch could look
back upon several bare-faced predecessor*! without a break, lor none of the
Kings from Henry V. to Henry VII.
wore the least hair upon their laces.
Prior to Henry Wa t. .«, however,
beards might be said to be Hlmost the
rule; and, indeed, from William L, in
IUG. to the death of Hen.y IV., iu
1413, no King sat ou the English
throne who was clean-shaven. The
Conqueror and his two sons aud successors were content with a moustache
only, as were Henry II. and Richard
II.; but Richard the Lion-Hearted
would seem to have mude tha beard
fashioiiHble, for his brother Juhn,
Henry III., and the first three Edwards entirely gave Ilie re- ir the goby.
Thus, though George V. is the flrst
of bis name to wear a beard. Edward
VII. wus only lollowing the example
of his most famous predecessors.
Thus out of the thirty-three Kings

wearers und the clean-shuven almost
provide a tie, for there u.j thirteen
of the former und fourteen of the
latter.  Six Kings wore moustaches.

The Dugong.
The old stories about mermaids do
not seem so improbable ufter all when
oue looks at a lull-sized dugong. The
ouly thing it lucks to muke it a real
seawomau is long hair. This enormous tish has flippers instead of fins,
and rudimentary arms. The Hipper-!
end iu tour distinct fingers, and are
sfurtlingly like the human hand. Tin
shoulders of tins weird marine crea
ture slope into a short but perfectly
defined neck, ou which is set a round
head. The eyes ure l..te a human being's in shape and expression, but
very much larger. They are set 'nr
apart on each side of the head, and
have a brown iris swimming iu a
wnite bull, but nre lidless. The
dugong bus no nose, but the forehead is broad uud well developed, aud
while the mouth is "fishy" iu shape,
there is a distinct under lip. Ihe
dugong is twice the height of a tail
uiuu when it is full grown, and a mother dugong moving about through
the water holds her buby tenderly in
her "arms" pressed to her breast, just
as a human mother does. Glimpses ol
this .strange inhabitant of the sea no
doubt gave rise to the old-time belief
in mermaids The dugong is rapidly
becoming extinct, but still can be

The Census
The census for the Crauhrook district has been completed, and jud'giug
from the result, as spoken of around
town, it will not be satisfactory to
Cranbrook. It ls said that the population of the city will he iu the Vi
fin ity of ;i,oini yet within a radius uf
half a mile there is a population of
1,000 to 1,500 the most of them em
ployed in the city, which are counted in the district. The Y. M. O. A..
the telegraph, and laud department,
also the townsite company's building
are ou the west side of Van Home
street, occupied by 75 inmates, will
he counted as lu tbe district, hut
Cranbrook will not have them counted as part of thc population of the
city. This also applies to thone residing In the vicinity or tbe Sash &
Door factory, and those east of town
on St. Joseph's creek, afso tbose on
the hill south of town. We are of the
opinion that if these were counted as
Cranbrook, tho population would he
close to 5,0000.
In referring to this outlying portion
we might say that thc whole of this
area was formerly plotted as Cranbrook, but when the city was incorporated, the lines of the municipality
were adjusted to only take tn the
more thickly settled portion or thc
original  plan of Cranhrook.

Revelstoke in Darkness
by electric storm
Revelstoke,  U.  0.   July  il—A   fierce
thunderstorm,  which swept over the
city thia afternoon, struck the power
Hue of the electric plant and succeeded in putting the unit in uae completely out of business for about ftve
hours. The armature uf tbe plant
burned out and tbe supplementary
kh« producing plant had tu be started up tu generate power to rim the
remaining units which were not iu
uae on account of the tlume being
rebuilt to thia portion of tbe plant.
It ls estimated tbnt the damage
done will amount to somewhere in
the nelgbbOflhood of (1,000. The accident was due to the lightning passing the protective fuse. Several
blazes also started in the muuutaius
but were speedily put out by the de
