Banquet to World's Best Weat Grower
Anglo-phobia Press
Berlin, Nov. 23.—The statements
made In the house of commons by
Capt. Walter V. Faber, M. P., and
others concerning the narrow escape
which was made from war between
Germany and England over the Moroccan situation, and the outbreak ol
the English press regarding the matter, has stirred public feeling deeply
While the German newspapers print
the news of it prominently but few
of the most responsible journals have
thus far commented on thc matter;
their silence Is in marked contrast to
tho angry outbreak ol the Pan-German organs, which loudly voice the
Indignation of that part of the public which is easily swayed by jingoism.
Tbo antt-Brltlsh feeling of those
sections of the populace has been
feverishly Increased by the publication of tho statement tbnt when the
crisis was acute orders was issue.1 to

which won the prize and many other
varieties of wheat arranged in tbe

Lieut. Gov. Brown, who bnd been
tendered a civic reception at Rosthern at noon today, and who later
visited the Wheeler farm, five mllea
east of town, thanked the citizens of
RoBthern Ior their cordial reception.
The record ol Rosthern was one of
progress and advancement. Perae-
verence nnd laith of Rosthern settlers had boen an incentive to other
settlements. They had met tbat
night to do honor to one of tbeir
settlers. Agriculture being the leading industry ol tbe province, it was
not wise to allow the remarkable
achievement of Segar Wheeler to go
prize at New York with Marquis,, a
new variety ol wheat. In competition
with older varieties. Though Wheeler's enterprise proved that Rosthern
Saskatchewan, raised the best wheat
In the world. Wheeler had tbe
courage to raise this wheat and exhibit It at New York In fnce of tbe
strongest competition. Many others
might raise excellent wheat, and,
know lacking Wheeler's courage, never vnow It was the best wheat tn tbe
world. In tbe south part of the
province wc are as proud ot Wheeler's success aB you are. It means
toilers to every farmer tn the Province. Saskatchewan today produces
two-thirds ol the wheat raised in all
Canada. Canada is eighth in tbe
list ol wheat-producing countries In
tbe world.

tha senate threw out last year.
R. B. Bennett, of Calgary, then
arose to reply to the' speech from
tho throne.
Mr. Bennett mnde an effective
apeech which was listened to with
great attention He began by saying that bis selection for the important duty which he wna now fulfilling
was a recognition of the fact that
his constituency was the third largest In Canada west of the great lakes. He aUo recalled the fact that
this was the first parliament of the
British empire opened by a governor

naught was welcome to Canada not
only because he was of tho blood
royul but because of his fine record
on the. burning plains of Egypt and
in Mnlta, an well aB In Ireland and
England, and in every other place in
which he had labored for the empire.
The speaker nlso referred to the fact
that an additional welcome to the
duke wns extended on account of his
near relation to tho late Queou Victoria.
Tho Canadian people bad made it
clear that they would never have
anything  to  do   with  anything  that
He also believed that tho government should provide some means to
limit the issue of securities by tho
corporations. (Mr. McLean—Hear,

been C.P.R. solicitor, and gave this

In conclusion he thought that Canada should tirst seek her market with
in the British empire and so strea-
more than j ^then communities. He congratulated the present government on having already taken steps in this d.r-
Albert 9evel=ny of Dorchester seconded the address with a briel
speech  iu French.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier arose to speak
at-4.30. Thc fnct that today marked his seventieth birthday was made
an occasion for a special demonstration by both si les of the house. His
desk was covered    with an enormous
bouquet of roses, a gift from his fellow members.
Sir Wilfrid    began by  congiatulat-
products. The present admlnistra
tlon rejected a recent trade agree*
ment on the grounds of sentiment
but I fear tbat there is more sentiment than anything else In the pres
ent proposal.
"As regards reciprocity,  1 wish to j
frankly  think      the

mistake.       Nevertheless,    we   accept!
their    decision    loyally    and uncom

John A.  Macdonald advised  the Ca- |

making    way    for    some negotiation |
such as that we recently entered into I

"Can this be the candidate we elected two months ago ?" Sir Wilfrid
thanked Mr. Bennett for his birthday

thank all tbo members of the house,
nnd especially those on the opposite from an economic
side for their kindness in this respect.     The member    from    Calgary
I had wished him to remain long    Ifi

ment the hope, that was in the
breast nnd heart of all, that same
day there would be a commercial and
organic union of that empire.
Mr. Bennett congratulated Sir Wilfrid on tbe fact of reaching his 7<i
birthday, and expressed the hope
that ho would be long spared to
lead the opposition. (Laughter.)
In discussing the dofcat of reciprocity, Mr. Bennett snld thnt from the
western viewpoint such a defeat was
extremely  fortunate,    The   west   was
tlie melting poi Into which all      the
nation*.    won1 poured and thousands
of settl'TH bad come from thc i'nited

| There was not much, the ex-premier
continued, In the speech from the
throne to invite great discussion   at
; the present time.     The speech    had
! promised Improved roads, aid to agriculture and the establishment of   a
[ tariff commission.     It was Imposslb-
i le   to   estimate    the value of these
! things until tbe character of thc
measures  providing  for  them       was
'known      They could mean much,   ot
tbey could mean little.
There was,  bowaver,  in the apeech
I from tho throne words placed ther"
by the honorable gentlemen In powei at which the members of the op
position bave every reason to congratulate themselves.     It spoke     of
j the spread of continued prosperity,
ud the Increasing revenues, revenue:
better than anything In tbe past,
and they hoped such a stale of af

ago such a compliment could not   be

for an American market came chiefly

It did not meet with objection
standpoint, but
solely on sentimental grounds, During tbe late election campaign tbe
nearest to aay economic argument
was a speech from Hon. CliiTord Sifton, which I read because the remarks from that source arc usually
worth some attention. '
Sir Wilfrid read a paragraph from
Mr. Sifton's speech telling how the
United States was now confronted
with an unemployed problem, with a
problem of exhausted resources aud
with monopolistic tendencies characteristic of the country.
"What." asked Sir Wilfrid, "aro
the chief causes of those tendencies.
It is the high tariff, aow ;n force in
from outside countries inipcneuuble
on any fair terms. That high tariff
has now arrested her development,
made her fields deserted, congested In
thc cities a larger population than
ever before. It has put the United
States at the mercy of the mon *po-
lists. This is thc cause of the United States' problem and tbo dlfllculty
is now how to get rid if wieeo causes which lead to the present condition. Now compare onr own conditions to the conditions in the United States. Do we see mue'i dlfle.en-
CS? Are we free from monopolistic
control? Do not trusts and mergers
llourlsh n« luxuriously In the Dominion as in the i'nited States? Mr. S,f-
ton, In saying we would involve ourselves In the problems of tho United
Statev, is singularly mistaken. If
tt Ib true that the meat trade puckers in Cnnndn are organizing to
raise prices to the consumer, wo
have already the first proof of Canada's mistaken declBion on September 21. It Is not yet two months
past nnd th" Cnn^dlan people nre
already about to suffer for listening
that the last election wae carried under falao pretension". Thoro ure
men on tbe other side who truly believed that the rejection ot reciprocity waa a great service to Britain
and tho British empire. With respect to their views we will not

Knocked Out in the First
Mc Leod No Match For The  Local   Man
The boxing contest wblch took
place at the Auditorium on Wednesday night between Young Streeter of
Cranbrook and Wm. McLeod of Flagstone, was a short but fair exhibition ot the manly art.
The fight was somewhat disappointing to a large number in attendance
from the fact that It was short and
the end came too soon. The result
showed that Young Streeter has improved to a large extent since bis
fight with Bid Ryan, also that he
has a punch, like the kick of a mule,
and when he lands some one goes to
sleep. McLeod might have been a
good man, in the ring at one time,
but that time has passed, and his
action In the contest Wednesday
night Indicated tbat be stood no
show of winning from his youthful
and stronger opponent.
The preliminary was a ftve round
contest between Eddie McLeod oi
Flagstone, and Curly Smith of Cranbrook. By agreement the rounds
were of two minutes duration.
"Camp" Lindsay retereed this contest, and Introduced the boxers.
When time was called they broke
for the centre of the ring, and McLeod' landed a right Bwing to Smiths
head, Smith retaliated with a Jolt In
the ribs, both clinched; lt looked as
If Smith was laying low evidently
taking tbe measure ot his opponent,
honors were easy when the bell rang.
In the second round, Smith having
sized up his man, got down to business. McLeod sent a hot one to
Smith's head, and then another to
the shoulder. Smith got In a loft
to McLeod'e head, and tben a right
Jolt on McLeod's Jaw sent him down
and out.
Tbere was some clinching in the
light, but clean breaks were made.
It was plainly evident tbat Smith
was too good a ring general for bis
opponent, and a much better boxer.
Immediately after the preliminary
Streeter followed by his seconds entered the ring, and received an ovation from bis many admirers. He
looked to be In perfect condition,
and well able to put up a stiff fight.
A few minutes later McLeod entered.
He also appeared in good form, but
did not have tbat freshness, nor et-

went to the floor; he took the count

the jaw, McLeod swung round, dazed

his face. He was counted out. He
was carried to his corner, and it was
a couple of minutes before he realized that he was down and out.
Streeter's seconds and friends lift-
ed him on their shoulders, and tho
audience cheered him to the echo
It took Streeter just one minute
and thirty seconds to put McLeod to

For sheer stupidity and contemptible brutality commend us to "hoi-

in some of the British and American

recent, despatch from London, Ont.,
however, conaluslvcly proves that
our surmise is incorrect, because it
appears that tho annual Initiatory

compelled to run over a cinder track

Some sophistical people acquire
such a morbid craving for work, and
derive such gratification in thinking
they are working desperately hard,
that they regard doing absolutely
nothing as a crime. In some cases
tbis may be true. For instance, if
a man is habitually neglecting bis
duty by tailing his ease, he Is undoubtedly breaking a moral law, bu:
on the othcr hand, he may have
earned bis leisure by lung hours of
labor. "Work well and rest well," is
an old and oft-repeated adage, and
a strictly true one, although apparently tho very busy Individuals do
t know how or have not the Inclination to adopt it. They thoroughly appreciate tlle first part, but
the "rest" is a privilege they have
not yet learned to value. My readers may remark, that, a change of
work Is rest ;—'there is the appearance ot truth in this statement; tht.
brain may be active when tbe hands
are still, or vice versa. But Is this
real rest ? The giving up of doing
altogether. Decidedly not! The average person devotes a fair amoit.it
of time to recreation. During the
summer months excursion trains are
daily running and occupied by all
classes. The question at once arises, "Why do not moro people avail
themselves of the manifold opportunities which are constantly heing held
out to tbem for putting their leisure
hours to good use, Instead of denying themselves tbe pleasures and
benefits whlrh nre tho outcome of
moderate rational enjoyment?" They

Tlie Reunion which huH just opened
wlll necessarily be a comparatively
short one. A nrjw government just
taking hold cannot he expected to
at once prepare Important conatruc'
tive legislation, Tbo reciprocity la
ime decided I y the laat election will
die a natural deatli without nny, action bolng required hy the govornment. Tbe tariff resolutions profl-
cntod hy Mr. folding nml which
were att.Ml pending at the dissolution
ilied with the session nnd tlioy will
not araln of cotireo he presented to
parliament, Oanada hat „ standing
offer of reciprocity upon her statute
booh tor eighteen yeara which the
United HtateH OongrosB nnd govern
ment simply Ignored. Tho United
States may or may not permit their
ofler of reciprocity to atnnd hut the
fact thnt it remains open doeB not
call for any action by the Dominion
Government.    Since  1909 thc United
States has had a standing offer of
reciprocity on agricultural implements open alike to Oanada and all
the world. Great Britain automatically took advantage of the offer
becauBe she levied no duties upou
agricultural implements. Canada
took no action nor was any action,
Even apart from the recent speech
delivered by tho minister of finance
there ia every reason to doubt whether any tariff legislation will bo
proposed iu the near future. Possibly a bill may he introduced at tho
coming session to establish a tarift
commission, but until the commission
has been created and hns had time
and opportunity to investigate the
fiscal question there is no likelihood
ol any Important tariff changes being Inaugurated. Indeed during the
last campaign it was quite evident
that tbe existing tariff was in tlie
main working well although there
may be Industries which Btand in
need of more protection. The farmers, for example have long been complaining that the United States duties upon agricultural products were
much higher than tho Canadian duties upon the same and similar products.
The prime minister's recent trip to
Halifax will not be without benelit
from a party standpoint. Some of
the ministers who accompanied him
were not well known in the Maritime
Provinces and it is not beyond the
mark to say that they, nil of them
made a most favorable impression.
Hon. F. U. Monk made a notable
speech ln which he declared tbat tbe
opposition to the Laurier navy in
Quebec had never uttered a word ot
dlBloyalty to the British crown or
to tho will of tho Canadian people.
He and his friends had Bimply demanded thnt tbo voters ho consulted
on the naval question aa thoy were
bolng consulted upon tlio reciprocity
question. Hon. Frank Cochrane
who, ns minister of inilwnys, will
have much to do with lho Maritime
Provinces received mnny deputations
along the lino of tbo l.C.lt. as well
as at Halifax and got into close
touch with a great number of people. He certainly made a good impression as a practical business man.
Hon. Mr. Pellcticr, thc new postmaster general, made a most eloquent speech at the Borden bnnquot.
He io a mti'h younger man than thc
newspaper photographs show him to
be and be Is an orator of tho high-
cat type found ,n Quebec whoro oratory ia most practised and most appreciated.
Halifax has a magnificent harbour
but a cramped waterfront. Tho
navy yard wblch belongs to the Imperial government takes up n vast,
amount of valuable front which
could bo usefully devoted to railway
terminal and Bhipplng facilities, Tho
1.(1.R. Is already embarrassed for
room and when tho three great trans
continental linos enter Halifax the
terminal problem wlll be most perplexing. The elty nnd Its twin town
Dartmouth, nn the opposite side   of
the harbour are deeply Interested In
tho foundation nnd development ot
Ihe steel ship building Industry. This
concerns them n good deal more than
the navy whlrh ns represented so far
at Halifax by tho Nlobo Is looked
upon somewhat as a Joke. The Laur
ier navy bill was bitterly opposed by
the Conservative party as ft separatist measure. There will be a general disposition to repeal thc bill entirely rather than to attempt to
patch it up. It Is believed that tho
Borden government can build better
from the ground up than by resting
its policy upon the present naval act
The project of a Maritime union
has not been in practical politics
since it gave way to tbe larger idea
of Canadian Federation at Charlotte-
town in 18M. Nevertheless since j
Confederation there Imve been many J
who believed that the three provinces!
down Iiy tbe sea could better themselves by amalgamating into oue
large province. Hon. O. D. Hazeu,:
minister of marine aud ex-premier of
New Brunswick, announced himself
strongly in favor of sucb a union at
the Halifax, banquet. So far aB
could be judged from the comments
among those who heard him it will
require much argument to bring a-
botit what seems to an outsider to
be so desirable a result.
Hon. Mr. Nantel, minister of iu-
laud revenue, ia au optimist; he
looks forward to prorogation at tho
end of January. One thing is certain that tho session will not be
unduly prolonged unless by tbe opposition. There are many of course
who will run away with the notion
that the government must disclose a
rent deal of Its policy when tbe estimates ot 1912-13 are laid cn tho
table. They expect, tnese to include appropriations for the Georgian
Ilay canal and the new Welland canal nnd for tho expropriation ol terminal elevators at Fort William and
Port Arthur, lt Is moro than like,
ly however that any estimates Involving high matters of policy will
not bo brought down until the next
session. Ono mutter which will
soon ongage tho attention of tho
Government will he tho encouragement of better highwayH throughout
the country. This plank iu the
Conservative platform has proved to
bo a most popular one and the Borden government will implement Ito
pledges upon this subject un soon as

the Continent has on many occasions given its readers most
delightful premium pictures but thiB season they have secured
wbat is beyond any question ot doubt the best picture ever offered newapaper readers. It ls entitled "Home Again" and

who meet after anxious separation.
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous for his beauty and gentleness, winner of many prizes at dog shows, the pride of tho
family and neighborhood, has been stolen, and after many
days absence he escapes one night from his captor and returns
home on a snowy wlnter'B morning with the ropo whlcb he
broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
HIb familiar 1 ark brings his little mistress, Majorto, to
the door and she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries ot Joy which bring her mother and brother to tho door. "Laddlo" ls equally delighted to be "Home
Again" and answers her welcome by putting his paws ou hor
shoulder and resting bis head against her breast with R little
whine, which, iu his dog language means—"Where I love is
Tbe sweet faced young moth er, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes and parted lips—the two glad eyed children—an eager
boy with hair liko hlo motber's and tbe quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warmhearted girl with rippling locks, her

to    Sir    Wilfrid    I mirier   on having
reached his .seventieth birthday   and
expressed  the ho.ye  thut tbe ex-pre-
■ mler would be spared for many years
of usefulness and happiness.       After
j congratulating   the   mover and sec-
| ondcr of the address he paid n X\i-
bute to thc Duke and Duchess      of
Connaught.     A distinguished feature
of the lives of the duke and duchess,
he said, was   the high   and earnest
sense of their duty and responsibility.
Regarding Sir Wilfrid, Mr. Borden
lirst touched on the former's references to the prosperity of the Dominion. He seemed to be possessed
with the idea, he said, that he had
created all thc prosperity of Canada.
Ab a matter of fact the prosperity
of Canada was not due either to Sir
Wilfrid Laurier or to any measure
introduced by his administration but
to the splendid resources of the
country and to the capacity of Its
After the verdict of September 21
Sir Wilfrid should have realized that,
tho development of the coin try was
not due to himself. His remarks
afforded an apt illustration of his
self-appreciation. Sir Wilfrid has
solaced himself with the observation
that he desired no better epitaph
than that which has been given to
him by tho new government. He
was glad to see it recognized that
the verdict given on September 21
was a suitable epitapb.
Dealing with the opposition leaders
references to tbe reciprocity agreement Premier Borden said he had
taken vigorous opposition when it
wns Intimated tbat the people had no
right to reject the pact with tho
United States and that they could j
not give a proper verdict on this question. For twenty years Canada!
had a standing oiler of reciprocity j
on its statute books. It was there
until changed by the Liberal govern-
ment, and during all that time the■
American people hnd not hern denied
their right to decline that offer.
Surely the Canadian had the samel
Tho leader of the opposition when
bo   appealed   to   the   country, had j
made tbe boast that he would sweep:
Eastern Canada
Low Round Trip Rates to
Ontario, Quebec & Maritime
tho country from the Atlnntlc to
tho Paciflc. He had advised the
young men of tho country to follow
his white plumes, and had intimated
to the young men that they would
do well to place their money on the
"old cock." Many who had taken
bis advice were today sadder but
wiser men. Premier Borden vigorously disputed the contention that
the Conservatives had not combatted
reciprocity on economic grounds, He
quoted from a manifesto which he
had issued during tho progress of
the campaign to show that he     had
dealt at Ungth with tiie ocuUutulc i

of the teachings of the Lil eral lead

"I hope that friendly relations with
the United States will always in
maintained, and thnt the approaching
anniversary of one hundred years of
peace will be celebrated in Canada
well as in the United States in
manner worthy of the occasion.
"Canada would lose neither the
friendship nor the respect of the Un
ited States by a determination to
retain the control of her own affairs'
Premier Borden declared, proceeding
to criticize the references to the cab
inet, Mr. Borden said :
"Tho right honorable gentleman
dealt with the construction of the
cabinet and expressed very great dis
satisfaction with it. Indeed, in thc
closing port of his resolution he
adopted the most extraordinary
course, one of which I have never
known to be followed in the house
before of submitting to his royal
highness (he governor general that
the construction of the cabinet ought
to receive the disapproval of this
house. I never heard that it was
tbe duty of the king's representative
to concern himself with what should
or sbould not receive the npproval of
parliament. My honorable friend
has launched an unconstitutional idea
In asking his royal highness to pronounce upon such a question.
"I have always understood that
under modern systems of constitution
nl government these were matters
which had been secured to the representatives ot the people in parliament
free from interference.
"My right honorable friend, in thc
course of his speech, supposed him
self to be what In days gone hy was
described as a scrap book. It certainly was refreshing to And that he
has not only gone back fifteen or
twenty years for the purpose of bringing matters to the attention of this
house wblch are more or less irrelevant, but he hns gone back about
two hundred and fifty years for his
ideas of constitutional government.
I would like to explain to my right,
honorable friend in the flrst instance
lest there should be any misunderstanding on the subject, that this
cabinet was not concluded with the
idea of satisfying him.
"Before we proceed perhaps il
would not be out ot place, and con
ducive to a better understanding of
the present situation, if we ask our
selves what Is the character of thi>
administration. If I am to judge of
the character ot the present administration by the resolution I have
judged wrong. From the speeches
made before the election and the sol
emn declarations by party leaders I
would judge that the pres-nt administration is a true blue Tory admin
Istration, tinctured nn:l saturated

Thc safety of Royal personages is
guarded with a watchfulness tbat
would render their lives a burden to
them were it not for the fact that
they are accustomed to being guarded from their very earliest yeara, so
that later on in life the knowledge
that tbey are practically never out
of the sight of thoso whoso duty it
is to watch over thoir safety does
not specially trouble them.
A detective who is charged with
the duty of guarding the safety of a
cr.owned head must, however, take
care to cause his Roynl charge aB
little inconvenience ns possible, and
tho various plans and arrangements
that u Hoyal detective may tind it
necessary to make In the course of
hlfl work must be as Unobstruslve lu
character as they aro oltectlvo in attending tholr object.
King George, for eiamplo, is nt all
times guarded with tbo greatest caro
It is doubtful, Indeed, if lus Majesty,
except when ho ifl actually in his bed,
is over out of night of at leaBt one
of tbo personal detective stall at
Buckingham Palace, yet so secretly
and nnohstnmlvely In tbo work „f bhe
detective department carried out Mint
nobody, oven in tho Immediate encourage of Royalty, would have the
slightest renson to suspect that any
apodal arrangements for safeguarding thc King existed, did they     not
know that such was thc case.
When King George dines at the
house of a personal friend, a member
of the .Buckingham Palace detective
staff is present in the house from the
moment the King enters it until his
Majesty leaves; but he is never observed. Frequently be in disguised
in tbo livery of one of the Royul hit
van tit, two oi whom ure usually lu
attendance in any private house at
which thu King may dine.

Of a friend, the chief of the detective

companies his Majesty, and always
occupies a room immediately adjoin,
ing the Roynl apartments; but
throughout the visit the presence of
the detective Is no more noticeable
than is the presence of any othor
member of tho Royal suite, and It
would hn impossible for anyone pre
sent getting to know, uiiIohh lie were
told, that there were two detective:)
In tho bouse on gaged nlgbt nnd day
in watching over tho personal safety
of the Royal guest.
Ho secretly nnd imobstruslvely do
detectives on the BtnfT of Buckingham
Palaco perform t.bplr work thnt, wltb
tlie exception of the chief detective,
most of thom are unknown even to
King fieorge.
The chief detective hns interviews
from time to time with th«' King
when tt mny be necessary to make
special arrangements for safeguard*
his Majesty; but normally tbe chief
Margarat Marion with "The Jeanne Russell Co."
detective's plana are known only to
the King's private secretary.
A detective who has charge of the
safety of an important Royal personage has to receive n special training
He must be thoroughly woll verso,
in tho ways, doings, and methods ot
those innumerable secret societies
with which Kurope is honeycombed,
the members of which nre eternally
plotting against the lives of Roya
personages. The detective wbo
guards the Bafety of tbe German Emperor was for two years a member
of one of the most dangerous societies in Europe, known as the Third
Union, and be acquired during tbat
period a most intimate knowledge of
the methods of the clasa of criminal
which men in hiB position bavo to
keep a watchful eye on—greater, perhaps, than any other Royal detective living.
During thnae two years the detective lived with bis life in bis hands.
Had the faintest suspicion been a-
roused among the members of tbe
Third Union that the detective was
a spy, he would, without the slightest doubt, have paid for bis daring
with hia life.
A Royal detective must also be a
good linguist, tor he is constantly
brought into contact with foreigners.
The chief of the detective department at Buckingham Palace In n
good linguist, and cnn speak French
and German quite as fluently a" Eng
ltshl; hut in this respect the detectlv
es at foreign Courts are distinctly
ahead of their brethren at the Eng
liHh Court.
The chief detective at the court of
the Tsar is probably one of the most
remarkable linguists living. He can
actually speak nine languages as
fluently and easily as bis own.
No lady detectives are attached to
the detective stuff at the English
Court, but there are several at the
Luuru ut li.ietQii .nonnrchs.
In the entourage oi tbe Queen o(
Spam is frequently Been a nu.'.
dressed lady whose name, however,
never appears in the papers or in the
Court circular. She is supposed by
some to be a wealthy American, who
Ib a maid of her Majesty; but in reality bhe is the chlel of the lady de
tectlve stafl at tbe Spanish Court,
and iB always lu attendance when her
Majesty travels.
The German Empress, the Tsarina,
and the Queen of the Hellenes are
also continually guarded by lady detectives.
A Royal detective's life is one of
ceaseless care and anxiety. He Is
always fighting what might be termed an unseen foe. ft is true he Is
able, as a rule, to keep himself well
informed as to the enemy's doings,
and as long as his information ts
trustworthy and reliable, he can out
manoeuvre him; but he never cnn be
quite certain that hiB information
it; reliable. In making his plans, he
has to use his own judgment as to
how far he can rely on the truth of
tho information gleaned from bund-
reds of different quarters. If hi
makes a mistake, the chances are,
especially In the case of a foreign
monarch, that nn attempt will be
made on tho monarch's life, and even
it it completely falls, the detective's
reputation is mined.
A Royal detective seldom COpUnu
mi to hold bin position after fifty;
and, If he hns fulfilled his duties sue
cosflftilly, ho cnn retire comfortably
A detective engaged In guarding n
monarch Is not paid un especially
high salary, not more thnn five hun
dred n year, certainly, but his "per
qulHitas" nro considerable. Royalties
always are very generous in their re
wards to the chief of tbe detective
Staff at the Courts they visit, nnd It
is quite a commpn thing after n
Royal visit for n detective to be se
vera]  hundred pounds the richer.
It Is safe to S«y tbnt. the chief de
tectlve at the Court of nny importnnt monarch makes at least £1,000
per annum in this way, and, of
course, is well pensioned on retiring.

The discovery by Watt of the expansive quality of wnter when subjected to heat gave the cue for tbe

During the cold man of last week
devotees of the "roaring" game have
been husy with their "stanes" and
"brooms," Cranbrook wtll send bjv*
oral teams to honsplels all over thc
province this year.
The omission ot ten or even five
per cent, of the people in a city like
Cranbrook would seem to be impossible, without the enumerators wero
grossly careless, or extremely ignorant of their duties.
This is the nge of womeu. We find
all the avocations, professions and
trades of life opening their doors to
admit the enterprising woman. Some
are going into tbeir own, and somo
are going into other people's business
In our admiration for tho new woman there is danger of forgetting the
wife and mother and woman's true
sphere as a home maker.
The many friends of Rev. H. I'.
Spellar, who, has, during the summer been ministering to the spiritual
needs of the Baptist church, will bo
very sorry to realize that his departure is now to take place. Mr.
Spellar leaves tills week for Calgary
ou his way home to Mooso Jaw,
where his family resides. Mr. Speller will go away from Cranbrook
carrying the well wishes and prayers
of bis numerous friends.
Miss Jeannic Russell scorod n

to respond to ln Nelson is anything
to go upon crowded houses may be
expected in Cranbrook and It will
be just as well If everyone obtained
their seats early.

of ihe hiast Deering Y.M.C.A., Maine,
and making good in his work thore.
Upon his arrival ln Maine the Portland newspapers must bave had a
rare tax upon their geographical
knowledge when they described Cranbrook as being away up among
the Rockies of "Northern Ontario"
and apparently the Impression they
have of the inhabitants ol B.C. is
significant when they describe this
province aa being overrun with Indians. It is now up to Frank to
remove theBe ancient ideas from
their minds and educate them up to
the fact that we really have in Bri
tish Columbia the finest race of manhood on the continent.
The purpose ot store advertising ls
not merely to sell goods, but to sell
more goods—to make friends, build
up a patronage that wlll not only
stick but grow. Newspapers reach
the greatest number ot peoplo in the
Immediate vicinity In tho most natural way, at tbe least expense, and
they are therefore the best of all
mediums for stores. In a newspaper
you follow the lines of least resistance—ytui follow with the stream—
you talk to an audience already assembled, to the peoplo who want to
read—tholr mental cosmos Ib Tight
—they are on your wire, and thoy
won't ring oft it you hold their Interest. Attraction iu tbe basin of
all advertising—the store i< the suit,
