Letter of Appreciation
Cranbrook, May 8th. 1911.
To tbe Editor Cranbrook Prospector:
Dear Sir:—
i want to avail myself of this opportunity to publicly express my appreciation of tbe manner iu which the citizens of Cranbrook supported tbe
production by the local talent of the "Geisha," and tbe encouragement
received, not only by attendance, but by applause and generous praise, is
a source of great pleasure and satisfaction. Kvery member of tbe organisation, from the least to the greatest, deserves great credit for the
manner lu which they acquitted themselves, and my warmest and sincere
thanks are due tbem, as, without their kindly support and whole-hearted
interest, success would uot have been attained. Each member of the orchestra is nlso entitled t" my warm thanks nnd appreciation us tbey
played no small part, and tbeir co-operation and assistance added greatly to the musical charms of the production.
In conclusion, I hope tbat this attempt is only a forerunner of greater
things to be accomplished in tbe future, and that (Jranbrook will reap a
decided benefit, and in giving utterance to these sentiments I know i\x\\
well that every member ot the Cranbrook Operatic Society will sincerely
re-echo tfiem.
Thanking you tor your valuable space,
Yours very tincerely,

May have General Election
Possible   Outcome   of   C.onsei valiic
Opposition to Reciprocity
Ottawa, May 10—There will be a general election in Canada before
Christmas if tbc opposition clings to its avowed intention of obstructing reciprocity after the parliamentary recess is over, according to a
high government otlicial.
The great stumbling block in the way now is tbe enforced absence of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier at tbe coronation and tbe iact that the Canadian west
will be under-represented in parliament until there has been n redistribution of electoral divisions. This can not lie made until the census has
been completed.
The census figures will be available in October. If the opposition then
is still obstructing reciprocity it is said a redistribution will be given
precedence over reciprocity and election will follow.

Women's institute meeting— ?
A very interesting meeting of the
Women's Institute was beld in the
Presbyterian school room last Friday
evening. There was a large attendance. The meeting was called to order by tbe president Mrs, B. Palmer
who occupied the chair, and in a neat
address presented the speaker for the
evening Mrs. Ravenhill who lectured
on '"ibe Object of tbe Women's Institute," as follows:
" In the course of our travels we
have found very nourishing institutes
in some places, but there have been
places we have visited where the poor
Institutes are In thc last stue.es ot

"We are often asked what nre the
objects ot tbe Institute. One of the
objects is to uevelop home life. The
difficulty we Mud in keeping young
people happy in tbe family circle, is
because everything else hns gone on
aud developed but home life, which
for some reason or otber bas remained where it was a thousand
years ago. If we want to secure tbe
prosperity of the borne und to maintain tbc interest of the young people
we must go foi'ward in the home as
we do outside tbe home.
"Some young people look on housework as needing no Intelligence, If
homes arc to be intelligently directed
they call for intelligence and study,
which taxes women's brains and powers to the utmost.
There must be a steady growing
knowledge of the reasons why
we do things. Why some food*is
cooked in oue particular way
and Borne in another. Experience has
shown us that potatoes want cook

"We must have sympathy with our
young people. Sometimes we lose
this sympathy, and if We do so we
cau never expect to leud tbem in their
recreations and pleasures. Their constant craving for amusement seems
exaggerated tu fis. Let uu bold tbeir
confidence, and they will allow us to

to check where check ng is advisable,
and to encourage when encouragement is necessary. Do not let us shut

done by tlie minors and paid lor, but
latterly the company laid the track

anil this was often very much delayed. He bud left the urine iroquentiy
foi want ol track ami timber, which
were supposed to be kept on baud for
him. Tbe records of the company
showed that he had worked 208 days
out of a possible 258 days the mine
was operated.
Mine Engineer J. R, Roaf wus called to testify as to the numbering ui
the coal seams, some dlllerence being
expressed regarding the identity of tue
number one seam. Mr. Shanks stated
tbat prices in number one south were
ii'i cents per ton aud iu number two
00 cents. The number one south
price was not according to the agreement, because it had not been working when tbe contract was made.
Mr. Stookett put in a statement
showing the earnings of each man in
number two where the change from
pillar to long wall was being made,
The number of shifts lost did not
appear, and the average daily per
man was $8.79 the highest being $6.95,
Thn. wae earned by Mr. Lyons.
This work was started in March in
1910. There was some contention
about tbe application of "the average
to tbe whole of the district, and it
came out that tbe statement contained tbe names of hut,25 men, while
there were more men working in that
Pit Boss James Lancaster stated
that there were men coming and going often In thin part of the mine,
but he could not tell from memory
how   many.
A.   L.  Carter heir stated   that   be
1 bought no fair average for that
work could be struck from the state
ment containing but 25 names. Mr.
Lancnstcr stated to Mr. Stuhhs that
be had gone to the check welghman
to get the tonnage made by the men
and hnd the pit committee assist him
in determining the amount of makeup due to ihe men. Mr. Lancaster
had worked as day digger in tbis
mine four and live years before at
5H cents per ton, nnd had mude from
four to six dollurs per shift.
He thought men could make as
much wages there now, but the earning power of money might be less,
owing to the extra cost of living. He
was now getting -$4.7.r. a day ami saving money.
Manager Wilson here made a state
ment tbat during the years 1909 and
PJ10, number two mine hud produced
203,632 tons of coal at an average
cost of $2,69 per ton, and that tbe
average selling price bad been $_.-.»,

Thu showed that there were 70 days
Irtst, of which 30 days were on ac
count of lack of railway cars. He
bad lost other days on account ol
guH, want ul timber and uf truck. He
thought that at least six days were
chargeable tu larity un the part of
the management, but iu justice bis
loss was much more than the t_*5
which the six days represented.
Nick MtflcLsco, an Italian miner,
had experienced difficulty in having
timber supplied and tracks laid as
needed. He worked in number 6 mine.
He bail to build cogs with timber
that was often too large and he had
to split it. Ile had built these cogs
sometimes with lagging which be bad

one month he bud to go borne at
lease eight, tunes because of lack of
timber or track or cars. He bail to
get other diggers to help put up the
heavy timbers. He had to make lagging to build cogs on top of pobts,
and got, no extra pay for it. He had
to throw coal a long way to the car,
sometimes as far as forty feet. Mr.
Wilson read a statement of the witness' earnings for 1910. This showed
100 days at au average of $3.00. Witness did not think this was quite
J. W. Cray, a member of tbe pit
committee on grievances gave evidence which showed similar conditions as stated by previous witness
lie stated that the men did not register complaints with the committee
because of the prevailing opinion that
kickers lost standing with the ofHcii-
als. This statement, caused tbe chairman to comment upon It and he
[stated that if such a condition existed it spoiled tbe usefulness of any
committee. The witness had decline-,
to answer a question and the chairman asked him if he would make a
statement to him in private MT.
Macleod thought any statement made
should be tu the full committee, but
the chairman said be would take the
statement alone if the witness agreed
to it. Another witness, Beattie, was
on the stand and his evidence coincided with that given before by the
others regarding lack of timbering,
track, cars, etc.
Tbe company records showed Gray's
earnings to have been $790 during the
last year, an average of $4.75.
Arthur Warring worked in No. 9
mine. Ile explained bow he had to
throw coul forty feet at times to get
it iu the car. This witnesu disputed
the statement of bis earnings. In
one month, March, when he began
work on tbe 24th lie hail worked six
dnys and had been credited with but
live. Manager Wilson promised to
look the matter up. Mr. Wilson stated that the earnings of the men in
No. 5 mine for L910 averaged $3.80.
Tbe last witness for tbc day waa
Pit Doss Win. Wilson of No. 9. This
Witness did not agree with the testimony of Beattie in some respects and
at one time be told Mr. Stubbfl that
it wns none of his business, wben
that gentleman asked him n uueBtion.
This brought the chairman un the
scene at once and Wilson was told be
could not use sucb language before
tht board. Dr. Gordon tben asked
the witness the question himself and
he answered it.
i The crowd was still greater than
on the previous day and the interest
seems tu grow with the progress of
the inquiry.

Mr J Fink of tbe Fink Mercantile
company who ban been efist for never
nl weeks returned to Cranbrook on
Wednesday. Mr. Fink saw tlmt ul
most all eastern farmers are a gainst
(the proposed reciprocity agreement.
There was a well attended meeting
of tbe Cianurook Board of 'iraue
held in the committee rooms of tbe
Craubrook hotel on Tuesday night.
The discussion of tbe matter of advertising Craubrook and district and
the sewage nyiuw was the principle
business oi the evening.
In the matter ot advertising, Mr.
Gurd, chairman uf the committee
asked the Board how much tbey
would grant for this purpose, ami
hinted that the pamphlet should bu
the best that could he produced in
the city. He outlined what the com-
mlttee had done, uud thnt the mun
phlet would cost from f_oo to »5oo,
a portion of which would be covered
Iiy advertisements.
i Mr. Benedict, secretary of the
Board stated that he hud received a
number of communications irom laud
asking for information, which hu bad
read before the Hoard and tyled.
Mayor Hunt thought that pamphlets were good advertising, ami referred to Mr. Richardson, ut Lethbridge, Mr. Richardson said: "tbat
the local newspapers were the best
advertising   mediums  for  a district."
Mr. Christian, manager o{ the Pius-
pert ui, slated that bis company pio-
posod getting out a splendid coi('.nation edition consisting "t i ■•: leas
than 2,600 COplot and asked that the
Board through Its secretary provide
as much information as to the resources of the city and district as
Mr. Gurd. chairman if the advertising committee said, "ttiat both
ideas were eicelleut and Lhat tbo
Hoard should co-operate with tbe
Pro»| tor Co.
The secretary then announced 'that
a meeting would be held in tbe Edition theatre on May the PJth when
Mr, Hnddon, of the John Gault Co.,
would addre»H the citizens on the

The night passed wltlioul nny event.
Wbeu the dny duwued I BUluted It
with a deep sigh uf relief. Itouletabllie was already In the midst ot tbe
workmen, laboring actively lu repairing the bretict.es of the tower H. Tbe
work was dope so expeditiously aud
so promptly that lbe strong Cbateuu
of Hercules wus soon sealed as hermetically close ns It was possible for a
building to be, Seated mi n big bowl-
der In tbe bright suulight, Itouletabllie began to draw upon his notebook
tbe plan wblcb I have submitted to
the reader, aud he said:
"You see. these people believe that I
am fortifying the place to defend my-
self. Well, thnt la merely a small part
of the truth, for I am fortifying tbe
place becnuse reason bids me do so lo
order tbat l.araun cannot gef In."
When 1 heard a knock at my door
about 11 o'clock lu tbe morning a&*4
the voice of Mere Bernier told ma
lhat Houletabllle wanted me to get up
1 threw my window wide open and
looked out lu delight.
Never bad nature appeured to me
more sweet. Tbe serene air, tbe beautiful shore, the balmy sea. tbe purple
mountains, alt this picture to which
my northern senses wer. so little accustomed, evoked in my miud the
thought of some lender, caressing human being. As these thoughts passed
through my mind I noticed a man who
was lashing the sea. I could not understand what had excited his wrath
tn this trampii! spot, but he evidently
felt that he bad some serious cause for
Vexation, fur be uever ceased his blows, i
At tbis polut 1 was interrupted by
tbe voice of Itouletabille, who lutd me
that breakfnst was nearly ready. Roule-
tabllle uppeured iu the garb of a
plasterer, bis clothing showing fresh
mortar, 1 asked him whether be bad
Been tbe man who was beating tbe water, and be told me that it waa Tulllo
wbo wus frightening tbe fishes _*drlve
them Into bis nets. It was tVr this
reason, 1 realized, that Tulllo tiud obtained tbe nickname of the "hangman.
of tbe sea."
Itouletabille went on to tell me thut
be   bad   asked   Tulllo   that   morning I
about tbe stranger whom be bad rowed
about lu  his  boat thc nlgbt before.
Tulllo   bad   replied   tbat   he   bnd-no
knowledge whatever of whom tht* mau ;
might be; tbat be was a crazy sort of
Jellow whom he bad taken lu ua a pas- ,
senger at Mentone.
1 dressed myself quickly and joined ;
Itouletabille,   who   told   me   lhat   we
were to have a new guest at luncheon
In the person of Old Bob.
Old Bob mnde his appearance. And j
•-let me say It; let me say It here—It j
man not this apparition wblcb could
have turned our thoughts toward anything dark or gloomy. 1 have rarely
seen anything more droll than Old Itob
walking In the blinding sim of the
springtime in tbe Midi, with a tiilthat
of black beaver, his bluck trousers, bis
black spectacles, bis white linlr and his
rosy cheeks. Yes, yes, wu sat tbero
and laughed In tbe 'Power of Charles
the Hold. And Old Hob laughed with
US, fnr Old Itob was as gay as a child.    |
What was Ibis old savant doing ut
the Castle of Hercules?   Why did he ;
quit his work and precious collection
In Philadelphia?
At tho time of bis Infatuation for
tbe daughter of M. Stangerson, Arthur !
Jtunce was regarded by American sel- j
enlists   us  tbe   rising  anthropologist
Bis   subsequent   marriage   to   Edith j
J'rescott revived his enthusiasm for re-
search, which she shared.   When they
visited tbe region of Itochers Rouges
the leading scientists of Prance, were
moving  the   govornment   to   promote
their work, which was yielding great
results.     Discoveries  In  tbe  private
grounds of M. Abbo, owner of tbe res- i
tauraut   of   tbe   0 rot to   of    Parma I
Grande,   proved   that   primeval   mun
bad   lived   there   before   the   glaclul
epoch, 'JOO.UOO years ago.
The Itaoces eagerly entered Into
these antiquarian researches. Mrs.
Itance, being of u romantic turn, took
a violent fancy to the ruined castle
aud persuaded her husband to buy ll
While it was beiug made habitable
Itance telegraphed aud wrote to her
uncle, Old Uob, wbo was then bone
digging lu Patagonia. These messages
never reached him. for Old Bob, wbo
bad previously promised tu Join his
nephew and niece after Ihey hud been
married fur u while, hud already taken
the steamer for Europe, livldeutly report hud ulreudy brought to him the
Story of the treasures uf the itochers

bud been dispatched be lauded at Mar- ,
Bellies and arrived at Mentone, where
ti** became tho companion of Arthur
Jtunce and his wife m tbe Chutenu or
Hercules, which his very presence
leemed to till with life and guyety.
The gllyety of Old Bob appeared to
ua a little tbentrical. but thut feeling
arose without doubt rrom the effects
of our apprehensions of the evening
before. The Old Bob had the soul of
a child. Ho was us much of a coquette as an old woman.
Mrs. Banco presented him to us. and
be uttered a few polite phruses, after i
which he opened his wide mouth In a ■

heard that Prince Oalltt'b hud declared that he tiad discovered "the

Kvery vestige of gayety fl>*d from
Old Bob's face aud manner. Ills voice
wus husk; with passion as he exclaimed:
"That Is nn Infernal lie'. The oldest
skull In all history Is Old Bobs skull
Do you understand me. It Is Hid
Bob's skull."
"Mattoiil. Matton1 Brlyg raj trunk

Almost us soou as the words were
spoken we saw Matton! crossing the
Court, of Charles the Bold with Old
Bob's trunk on bis shoulder Old Bob
took bis bunch uf keys, got down oo
his knees and opened the box. From
this receptacle he took a hutbox, and
from the batbox he drew out a skull,

I were unable longer to eoutrol ourselves and nearly spin uur sides with
laughter—all the more because Old Bob
every few momenta, would Interrupt
himself in the midst of a peal of merriment to demand of ua Whut was the
object or uur mirth.
Suddenly Old Bub grew serious. He
lifted tht* skull iu his right hand und
placed the forefinger ot the left hand
upon the forehead of tils aucesiur.
"When oue looks at the skull from
above one notices very deurly u pen-
tngomil formation which Is due to the
notable development ol the parietal
bumps and the jutting out or the shell
of the occlpltats. The great breadth
of the race comes from the exaggerated development nt the zygomatic proportions, while in the head of the troglodytes of the Baousse Baousse what

I shall never know whut It was that
Old Bob found In the head of the
troglodytes, for I did uot listen to
him, but 1 looked at hlin. Aud I -had
uo further IncllniUlon for laughter.
Old Bob seemed lo me terrifying, horrible, as false us the father of lies,
with his counterfeit gayety and bis
sclculltle jargon. My eyes remained
llxed upon hlin as If they were fascinated. It seemed to me that 1 could
sec his hair move, Just as u wig might
do. One thought -the thought of Larsan. which uever left me completely—
seemed to expand until It tilled my en
tire brain. I lelt us If 1 must speak
It out wheu nil at once 1 felt an arm
locked in mine, aud I saw Itouletubllle
looking nt me with un expression
which I did not know how to read.
He drew me uway from tbe table,
and we walked toward tbe west boulevard. After he bad looked closely on
every side and made sure that no one
was near us be said:
"You are In the right in seeing him
everywhere around us. If he were
uot there a little while ngo he Is perhaps there uow. Ab, he Is stronger
than the stones! He Is stronger than
uny thing else In the world. 1 fear bim
less within than without, for, Salnclalr. I feci tbat he Is here."
I said to Itouletabille. scarcely daring to put into words what was tu my
-Old Bob?"
He did not answer At tbe end of a
few moments he said:
"Hold your left band In your right
for five mllfbies and then ask yourself.
■Is it you, Larsany And when you
have replied to yourself do not feel too
sure, for he may perhaps have Hod to
you. and he mny tie tn your own skin
without your knowing it."
With these words Itouletabille left
me alone lu the west hotilevurd. It
was there Mint Pere Jnequaa come to
look for me. lie brought me a telegram.
I wus not lu much of a hurry to
open the dispatch which Pere Jacques
hud brought me. nnd in ibis I waa
wrong, for as soon as I cast my ejea
over the words wlilch It contained 1
realized that it wtia of the deepest Importance. My friend nt Paris, whom I
bud requested tu keep uo eye upon
Brignolles, sent me word that the
said Brignolles had left Paris the
evening before for the Midi.   Ile had
taken lhe 10.33 tram .My tricud Informed me that be hud reason to believe that Brlguolles had taken a Octet fur Nice.
What should Brlguolles be doing irf
Nice'/ I kepi Brimiolies to myself all
alone and so welt lhat when, assuming
my must Indlfterent air, I rejoined
Houletabllle lu Hie Court of Churles
the Bold I never mentioned tbe subject

his hand, ll seemed to me tbut be
wus devoting considerable time und
energy to a comparatively simple task,
und, like a fool who does nol see beyond the end of his own nose, 1 could
uot refrain from telling him so. But, uo!
1 was only able to understand tbut,
half nu hour later, wheu 1 came upou
hltn lying beside the ruins of tho
chapel, murmuring in his dreams the
oue word which betrayed the sorrow
of his heart- "mother." Umiletaldlle
was dreaming of the Lady in Black!
After having relieved his overcharged
heart with that one word he left noth
ing more to be h <*\rd except bis heavy
breathing. IL' was completely exhausted. I believe (hut it was the llrst
time he had really slept slave we bad
come from Paris.
I left the chateau unseen, and soon,
my dispatch In my pocket, I took the
train Tor Nice. On the way I chanced
to read this item on ttie lirst pagO of
the peiit Ntcots. "Professor Btanger

Everyone know*) that ut the coming

be aware that these emblems of rank
are not what llicy appear to he, nor

Gcorgo .im ii ik the ceremony is, of
0OUrS4, priceless, and so also is that
which tlie Queen will wear, hut the
coronets worn by the peers and peeresses may he oblalliod for a comparatively small sum, uud if wc take into
account thc sum -.pent upon the robes

(act is that these coronets are not

hut as a ruin are bought as required.
Very lew. if any, are made of gold:

Who is to be successed by Hear Admiral Charles Henry Coke in the
naval command of Ireland, has forty-
six years' service in the British navy
to his credit,
Sir Alfred waa first in action in the
Egyptian war of 1882, obtaining the
tigyptian medal and the Khedive's
bronz- star. Two years later he saw
mor. active service in the Eastern
Soudan, aud in 1888 was mentioned in
despatches and promoted to the rank
of commodore for his gallantry at
Suakin. He haa since been naval
attache in Paris, St. Petersburg, and
Washington, and served in China in
As commodore on the North American station, he took part in the negotiations Which resulted in the settlement of Vne Fre_nch claims in Newfoundland. All who have served with
his speak in warm terms of Sir Alfred's abilities and his pleasant, genial manner when off duty.
He o-ten tells a story of how a
more than ordinary cheeky "middy"
once scored off him. He happened
to meet the youngster during a house
party, and was criticising him in a
friendly manner ior not having made
better progress. "When I was your
age I was a sub-lieutenant," he remarked. "Yes, sir," replied the boy,
with an affection of simplicity, "but
tben is it not a fact that the navy
was never so efficient as it is to-
dayP" Sir Alfred is a younger brother of the popular Gen. Sir Arthur
Paget, whom he resembles in many
ways, and he married in 1906 Miss
Viti Macgregor, eldest .daughter of
Sir W. Macgregor.
Admiral's Taunt.
The new commander-in-chief a*
Portsmouth, Admiral Sir Arthur
Moore, although noted for his sarcasm, is one of the most popular
officers in the navy.
Some years ago, when second in
command of the old Channel fleet,
one of his toTpedo destroyers answered its helm so badly that on more
than one occasion it narrowly escaped a collishm with the other vessels
of the fleet as they proceeded on
their way down the channel.
The admiral watched it, and then
signalled to the unlucky commander
aud apologized for being in rather
narrow waters at the moment, but assuring him that if he could only keep
his vessel from bumping into the rest
of tlie fleet for a short time longer,
he would soon have the whole of the
Atlantic Ocean to manoeuvre in.
On another occaaion whtfe the hie
funs of his ship were being practiced
at ilouting targets, one gun made a
very bad miss. The captain of the
gun in question was at once summoned to thc admiral's speaking-lube to
receive a gentle inquiry to the effect
that did he suppose the Lords of the
Admiralty supnlied him with livt
shell fnr tne sole purpose of ahootinp
The captain oi the gun, however.
had a speedy revenge, for his next
shot knocked the target to pieces,
aud so stopped the practice for the
rest of the day.
He Soothed Her All Right
j "You'll Httd," said the proprietor ol
| a dairy to a new milkman who was
linking over the "walk," "lhat the
lady ut 75 is inclined to find fault.
Vou must soothe her down, uud not
be rude to her; she is a pretty good
customer.'' "Leave that to uie, sir,",
answered the milkman.
"Thee eggs you left hero yesterday
were stale," griiiilcd the Woman at
No. 75 on the milkman's second visit.
"Them hcgffs was laid 'arf au 'our

The  fault-finding lady gasped.
"The milk didn't seem so good as
usual yesterday either," she ventured,
"The guv'nor will he cut hup when
'e 'ears that, madam," continued the
milkman. " 'Y, sent down to Haider-
ney a purpus for a eow whntil eat nothing but peaches and pine-apples.
'Never mind the hcxpense,' says he,
'this cow we keeps a purpus for the
lady at 75; and mind it sleeps ou a
feather bed at night,' he says, 'nnd
don't forget the heiderdown quilt.'
Was there anything wrong with the
butter, ma'am!'"
But the lady shook her head; she
had been effectively appeased.
You think you can do another
man's job better thnn he does, and
fortunately for you, there isn't any
law against thinking.

"Let tue see the index," snid the

Lord Flngatl's Story.
Apropos of the recent talk about
the troubles and trials of touring companies, Lord Fingall tells a tunny
story of a certain company, which
had been doing bad business in the
provinces. While the proprietor and
sole responsible manager was standing, outside the theatre a small boy
with a large melon arrived, and proponed to barter the fruit for a seat
in the gallery. The bargain was duly
concluded. At the end of the performance the manager accosted the boy.
"Hoy," he said, severely, "that melon
was rotten." "That's all right," ne-
tprned the youthful critic; "so was
ver show."

her name was Marie aud her father

he returned to lhe town above.

longer than before.
Wilcox continued these visits. He
found a wineshop down among these
fishermen's quurtcra and would go lu
there for a liter of wine and to smoke.
Sometimes he would take Marie In to

Quair Ornaments.
Thc Langos, a native tribe inhabiting the region east oi the Victoria
Nile, in Africa, wear some peculiar
ornaments. Iron, or sometimes, brass
bauds arc worn on the arm. These
are put on when the penon is young
and as the arms grows the muscles
'ire forced into unnatural bunches. Lip
ornaments, usually of glass filed down
from pieces of broken bottles, are worn
in the lips. The hole into which such
ornaments nre inserted is from a quarter to half an inch below the lower
lip. Tile pointed end of the glass is
outside, while the thicker end is pressed through the opening in tlie lip
and lodges against the lower incisors.
Why Not?

confusion. Piles of stone along the

It Started In thi Fartln and la Still
The spring exhibitions ot the Montreal Art Association are the outcome
oi shows which were organised chiefly ty ttui'iteurs about the forties, wlieu
the British soldiers were there, says
M. J. Mount in The Canadian Century. Among these military men many
were talented, especially the engineers, who were all draughtsmen.
These were later recalled to be sent
to the Crimeu.
Most of the oflicers stationed here
and tiieir families were persons of high
education and taste. This naturally
assisted the people ill their efforts toward elevating thu standard of society, and tiierefore any endeavor towards tlie tine arts met with great
Kvery year they had a small exhibition of paintings, drawings and so
forth, to encourage and bring forward
tlu local talent and to enable comparisons to be made between their
work und thut of other contributors.
These werc small beginnings, a few
pictures, a tew drawings, still they
were the pioneers of art in Canada,
and wu owe to them what we have
now. Those exhibitions were organix-
cd and judged by tlie early patrons
of art, who every year gradually became more discriminating.
Such men were the forerunners of
tlie Art Association, which was otli-
dally organised in IHUtl, and ever
since, the Spring Exhibition has been
an anxiously expected event by artists
and by the artistically inclined public.
A writer lias said: "Probably many
ot the pioneers who led the way and
opened a path fur the arts in our
country hud little merits as artists,
but they are objects uf CUriout inquiry
t.i us of the present duy. fur us we
earnestly desire to kilow every particular relative to the first settlers who
raised the stuudurd ot civilization iu
tire wiiderness, so the same rational
desire is felt, especially by artists, to
learn who were their predecessors,
who raised und who supported the
standard of taste and decorated th'
social column with its Corinthian
'iu these annual exhibiti'ins all artists may send pictures, but no work
is admitted which lias been exhibited
before in Montreal, tlie aim beiug to
urg < artists to new efforts.
It will be at once remarked that
there is u great unevenness in the
quality uf the work. This is tlie re-
sul. of the peculiar conditions surrounding the exhibition. Amateurs of
more than usual merit are encouraged
to exhibit, as are also students. As
years go by the standard is much
higher. Nevertheless their work is
not judged from such a high standpoint us the work of the professional
The Council of the Art Association
usually cull in two or mure artists ol
reputution to assist them in judging
tlie pictures. The technical side is
considered as well as the general ar-
tistic value. Leniency is shuwn tu
amateurs and tu promising students
— but woes to them if they do not
improve from year to year, for they
may not pass the committee.
lt is not easy for outsiders to appreciate the really great progress
made, but to one following the exhibitions carefully every year the progress
is remarkable.
Vear by year new names are being
added to the roll ot acknowledged
leaders. Besides our veteran Harris
we have Brymner, Cullen, Suzor-Cute,
Morrice, Heber,t, Hammond, Graham.
Reid, Brownell, Clupp, Laura Muntz,
Florence Curlyle and others.
The educational advantages given to
the children as well as to tiieir elders
in visiting these exhibitions cannot be
over-estimated, for the study of works
of art elevates the taste lor all things
good aud beautiful. As Ruskin says;
"To cultivate sympathy, you must be
among living creatures, and thinking
about them; and to cultivate admiration, you must be among beautiful
things and looking at them."
Concurrent Sentence!.
There is no one who enjoys a joke
more than James P. Huverson, and
no one who scents one on himself
quicker than the same "Jimmy." It
is a clever man who is able to put
one over on him. But Mt. D. C. Hos-
sack, now a lawyer, though formerly
a minister, turned the tables on his
fellow-lcgalite not a great while ago.
Mr. Haverson approached Mr. Hns-
sttck with words to the eflect that he
wished spiritual advice trom the ex-
Treacher whom he said he regarded as
is father-confessor.
"In the course of my defence of
my clients, the hotelmen," he said,
"1 have to tell the same lie over and
over again. Now, suppose I have told
a lie fifty times, will I be punished
in tlie hereafter for one lie or lor fifty
lies? Perhaps you better take a day
or too to think over that question
before you answer it."
"No need to do that," responded
Mr. Hossack. "The answer is a very
simple one. You will be punished for
everyone you tell, but if it is any consolation to you to know it the sentences will run concurrently."—Toronto Star.

He dug a little trench for the water

The case commenced soon after 11

Tbo evidence aud the cross-examination followed similar lines to lhat of
the former trial here last spring hut
was marked by a number of requests
which of several occasions were of lhe
nature of warnings, to tho defendant
to keep the case as far as possible
within the hounds, of legal precedent,
The flrst point that, arose was the
question of excluding witnesses from
the court room. Hia lordship gave
the usual onler at the request of the
defendant and Mr. McTaggart then
raised tho question nn to whether

Victoria, Mny u -That his hixcell*
i'ii.y tho govornor-general and Lady
tin*, will pay, a visit to Victoria,
and u othei ol the chlof population
centres ol British Columbia during
the tosthcomlng July, is the news
whloh bus been unofficially communicated through a telegram from Pr«iu
lot McBrldo, received by 'the prime
uun ist er's locum tenons, Hon, Dr.
Young, prior to the Mailing of lib*,
thief trom New York for Liverpool
yesterday. The substance of the
message has been communicated to
the lieutenant governor and it Is
said his honor will before long be
fully advised from Ottawa ns to tho
probable extent of the stay of his excellency ami his party in this province, and the precise nature of the
unexpected hut welcome visit. If the
July visit Is to bo regarded as Bomi-
privato, as was his excellency's last
year's visit, spent almost exclusively
at tin vice regal camp near Windermere, it Is expected that hospitalities
hero will he limited to possibly a
largo garden party at Government
houae, with u few state dinners, or
informal lunches, etc. If, however,
the promised visit is to he taken as
official and in the nature of a leave
taking to British Columbia a more
formal nnd elaborate program of entertainment will quickly take form.
A graceful illustration of the unfailing thoughtfulness and invariable
kltutilnoss of heart of Premier McBride was furnished just before the
departure of the Prime Minister from
tlie Capital, when in his capacity of
Minister of Mines he had the pleasure of forwarding to Mr. John Cum-
mings of 150-mile house, the fiftieth
renewal of bis license as a free miner
of British Columbia. Mr, Cummings
was one of the old brigade through
whose indomitable courage and strenuous endeavors the golden treasures
of Cariboo were disclosed to the
world, now half a century ago. He
was indeed one of the original workers on the world famous "Cariboo
Cameron's" claim, and ever since he
has spent at least a portion of each
year in prospecting the Cariboo
montains for precious minerals.
During hiB visit to fr/e Upper country last season, the Premier had the
pleasure of meeting the old veteran
of the mountains, Mr. Cummings being at tbe time in tbe government
agent's office for thc purpose of taking out the forty-ninth renewal of
his license. This year Hon. Mr. McBride anticipated the usual application of the pioneer argonaut and
seut him the license renewal from departmental headquarters, accompanying it with a graceful personal letter
in which the Premier's and Minister's
good wishes were expressed in cordial
and felicitous terms. . The Free Miner's license as it exists in British
Columbia is u document carrying
very extensive special privileges and
wide authority. Armed therewith,
one may even invade the sanctity of
private property or of declared re-
servos in quost of precious metal.
Only last year bis late Majesty King
i.dward VII. not only was the holder
of a "ticket" accrediting him as a
free miner of British Columbia, but
the fee therefor duly proscribed hy
Inw was charged in the usual course.
This exceptional situation arose
through the transfer to the Dominion
government for park purposes of the
famous Deutschmaun Caves, or Caves
of Cheops, not far from Revelstoke,
which had originally been taken possession of by the discoveres under
and by virtue of bis miner's license.
When the formalities of transfer to
the Dominion obtained consideration,
it wat found that serious obstacles
presented themselves In the imperative dictates of the mining Inw, uud
it was Anally determined to complete the transfer and transaction under that Inw, the caves being regularly located and subsequently Crown-
granted to His Majesty, as represented in and by his government in Canadn, and the fees nnd costs attaching
being subset)uently rebated by the
Provincial authorities.
The Premier, with Mrs. McBride
and Mr. Lawrence Macrae, private
secretary, left Saturday afternoon en
route for London and the coronation. It will he the sincere hope of
all British Columbians that their
trip will be in every wny a delightful
one, and thnt the summer vacation
may prove of the greatest benefit to
the bnrd working First Minister. An
entirely spontaneous gnd very pleasing demonstration of Hon. Mr. McBrldo's great personal popularity
was afforded during the last twenty
four hours of his presence at. home,
during which time he managed in the
intervals between Items in clearing
his desk of pressing public business,
to shake hands with ami receive the
gootl wishes of no fewer than five
hundred callers at bin ollices -men In
all walks of life nnd all complflXlOM
of politics.

Reciprocity, rather limn gnlnliiK
headway lu this country, Is getting a
hlack cyo every day that people have
r, tttrtho! opportunity nf studying lt.
Canadians    who   regarded   lt  as   a
harmless but necessary experiment at
first, are rapidly coming round to the
conclusion that it is dangerous, and
in every way ill-ailvised. There was
a time when the western farmer
could not see the jokers hidden in the
pack. "In the laBt few weeks, however," says no less an acute critic
oi affairs than the editor of Fne Winnipeg Saturday Post, "they hnve lie
conic educated, with the result that
il a vote were taken in western Canada today on reciprocity tho proposition would he turned down cold."
Thnt politics should llgure In the
reciprocity discussion is Inevitable.
Politics are a necessary evil. They
take their tliag alternately as the
salt and the poison of public life.
One of the most displeasing features
of the campaign in Cannda anent the
proposed trade treaty, is the attempt
in certain quarters to set up eastern
Canada tu he knocked down by thc
west, and vice versa, to pit the west
era farmer against the eastern manufacturer, to repreteat thnt tbe interests of one sect on are detrimental
to the other. To build a big nation
there must he internal harmony.
Provincial governments fencing with
the Dominion authorities, the west
taunting the enst, the east making
wroth tlie west, are not lectors conducing to nation building of value.
The manufacturer must realise that
there is something more for consideration than the growth of his own
Industry, that tariffs must he stretch
ed or slackened for the nation's and
not the individual's benefit. The
western farmer must realize that
there is something more for consldcr-
tion than his own prosperity, that he
must regard the tarift as an intermediary between the captain ol industry and the agriculturist, not as
hie own toy. The selllsb view Bhould
be eliminated when considering the
nation's good.--Calgary  Herald.

ingeis are still spirit beings, althuugh

ship. In other words, human nature
is not an imperfect form of spirit
nature but a totally separute antl dis
tiuct nature.
The Logos, the Only Begotten ol
Ihe Father, "was made flesh" (John
i. 11). He was nut a spirit being incarcerated in a body of flesh and
wearing it as a garment, or living
In it us a houae. He became l:k-

was holy, harmless, separate from sinners," while all others are sinners,

Jesus was not a dual being—a spirit
being living in a human frame. He
was merely human.
__*it the Redeemer became a dual being when He received the begetting
of the Holy Spirit at the time of His
baptism. Thenceforth, for three and
a half years, until His crucifixion,
He waa dual. The flesh was the
lame; but the spirit-begetting received from the Father constituted Hun a
ne-.v Ego, a new person. He not only
thereafter had new hopes, based upon
Divine promises, but He hHd a new
mind or new will specially illuminated, quickened, enlightened by the
Holy Spirit. From the time of His
baptism Hia flesh (all t. it belonged
to His human nature) was given up
lo die in t'.ie carrying out of the Heavenly Father's purposes. Thenceforth
th. Spirit-begotten One waited merely
for tlie accomplishment of His sacn

Hence, during the period of oui

Thus was our Lord "put to death

No longer was He a man. No longei

Him as He is" and  not as  He was,
and  share  His glory—because "flesh
'. an 1 blood cannot inherit the Kingdom
: of God" tl. Corinthians xv, 50*.
St.   Paul,   the   last   of   the   twelve
j Vpostles   to   be   called   (to   take   the
, iface of Judas),  needed, as  well tn
! tl.    others, to be able  to  witness to
the resurrection of Jesus.    Of thi* He
te'.li us. saying. "He was seen of Cephas,  then  of  the  twelve;   after  that
He    as seen of above five hundred
brethren at once; after that He was
•een of James; then of all the Apostles; and, last of all. He wu* seen of
me ulso, as of one prematurely born"
(I. Corinthians xv., &•£).
In the ordinary course of events
St. Paul would not have seen the Lord
until His resurrection, when he himself would come forth as a member ot
"ti. • Church of the First-born." He
therefore describes his view of Jesus
on his way to Damascus as being like
that of one born before the time. In
u. r words, St. Paul saw the Lord
as He is and not as He waa. He saw
tl Lord of g.ory, and uut the man
Jesus. The appearance v aa glorious
indeed. In various parts of tlie Bible
angels in their normal condition are
pictured as bright-shining ones. Thus
one of the Prophets fell aa dead before an angel of the Lo.d, whose
face shone as the sun. Thus John the
Revelator, granted a glimpse of the
glorified Christ, fell as deud before
Hiii. The effect of this great light
above the brightness of the sun upon
the eyes of Saul of Tarsua was destructive aud a miracle was necessary
lo*- their repairment.
Thus   the   Lord   identified   Himself
in   glory   with   His  former   self,  the
man Jesus.   These lessons of the Lard
should not have gone unheeded.   We
should not have thought of the glori-
fie- Messiah as a man.   The effect ol
th i wrong thought haa not only beclouded  our  appreciation  of  the Saviour in glory, but has also confused
many respecting His Second Advent.
It is safe to say that even yet tbe
maloritv of those who are exneeii-w

I . i took not back that sacrifice,   lut

These   wrong   expectation-   respect-

the hearts of many in a contrary direction.   They have reasoned correctly—that tin- establishment ul an eartn

Apropos of the historic "peace"

I.- interesting to note that he mad-
Ida first public appearance in H**~i
by taking the chair ut a political
meeting at Alnwick. He was encouraged to make tins debut by a letter
from Mi-hop Creighton, then vicar ol
the parish in which the family seat
ol the Greys U situated. "It Is quite
the right tiling to do," said the bishop to his promising parishioner.
"Use every opportunity that may
offer itself of making yourself a poii
tical personage with a distinct line.'
He advised Sir Edward to aim at
speaking for a quarter cf nn hour,
and lo hav.* an ending definitely pre*
pared. Sir Edward's hobby, when
free from carea of   tute, is fly-fishing.
Dickens as a Dude.

".'. very spruce man," is Ihe description given cf the famous novelist by
one writer. "He brushed his coat
frequently, changed his collars several times in a day and combed his
hui    100 times in a day."
A photograph of Dickens taken iu
l<i_ shows him in a frock cout with
a broad velvet collar, i waistcoat
mude of some furry stuff and trousers
of a huge cheek. Percy Fitzgerald
says the French painter's remark,
that Dickens wus "more tike one of
the old Dutch admirals we see in
the picture galleries than a man of
let lets," conveys uu admirably true
idea to his friends.

Soma Personal Cronias of tha New
Consort   ol   Britain.
The late Queen Victoria used to
say, "May is a continual ray of sunshine," and this statement is borne
out by Her Majesty's principal
friends. It is well known that Her
Majesty is slow to make friends, but
onco made she does not easily ullnw
anything to never the friendship. Her
tastes are, of course, uot like those
of many looioty women. Her ohiel interest i.- centered in her home and her
children, and she his no desire tu be
like the "bultcrlly" society woman.
Itunk does uot receive any great
consideration from Her Majesty, und

made with people in comparatively

is generally acoompanlod by Lady
.Catherine Coke, who, since the death

was Lady lu-Waltlng, has been una
ol Her Majesty's Women of the Bed-
ohorabor. Lody Katherlne Coke is a
very keen ait critic, uud Her Ma-
j sly is often amused by her clever
comments upon the pictures which
come under their notice.
Her Majesty has very few intimate
friends among society ladies, bul
among those honored with her friendship may be mentioned the Duchess
of Devonshire, who was recently Installed us Hr Majesty's Mistress of
the Robes, and Lady Mount Stephen,
to whom Their Majesties, it will be
remembered, paid a visit at Brocket
Hall, uear Hatfield, some few weeks
Lady Eva Dugdale is perhaps the
oldest and most intimate friend that
Her Majesty possesses. Aa is well-
' nown. Lady Kva has beon the
Queen's Ludy-in-Waiting, or Woman
of the Bedchamber, as she is now officially known, ever since her marriage
nearly eighteen years ago. She is a
very clever needlewoman, and is also
said to be an expert upon furniture
and old china, two topics in which the
Queen takes a very ere"t interest.
Neither tho Queen nor Lady Kva Dugdale cares a great deal for outdoor
snorts; both are great readers, and
often discuss and criticize books together.
The Countess of Shaftesbury, who,
it will be remembered, accompanied
Their Majesties on their last visit to
India, and will a_:ain this November,
is the Queeh's Lady of the Bedchamber, is another intimate friend of Her
Majesty's. Before her marriage with
the Karl of Shaftesbury she was Lady
Constance Grosvenor, and is a sister
of the Duke of Westminster.
All the Queen's friends have something to recommend them more than
a mere social qualification. Her Majesty takes a very great interest both
in British manufactures, which she
has done so much to aid in every
possible way, and in social questions,
Old relics of the Royal Family have
also a great fascination for the Queen.
Among the Royal Family Her Majesty
is immensely popular, and this is uo

The Leek or ths Daffodil?
There are th ise to-day who maintain that the Welsh national emblem
is not the leek, but the daff jdil. Both
leek and daffodil are known in the
ancient British tongue as "cennin,"
and it is held by those who favor the
daintier flower that owing to the similarity uf name the two became confused uud that Shakespeare's influence,

Old  Man's Thought of Rheumatism.
Sir Alfred East, A.R.A., who recently underwent a serious operation in a
nursing home, bears, beside his English title, thc honors of half-a-dozen
Continental societies.
When quite a small boy Sir Alfred
was obsessed with a passion for painting, His first studio was a seat at a
window, where, popped up on cushions and chairs, to prevent him falling, and supplied with a slate and
pencil, he tried to draw horses passing in tlie street below. Despite the
fact that he was only a tiny toddler,
the animals in his drawing, although
shaky as to tlie anatomy, never lacked the eyes, tail and mane, and the
importance the young artist paid to
detail augured well for his future success.
Sir Alfred once had a striking, if
amusing, example of the fact that the
best qualities of art are not always
appreciated by the public. One of his

Saskatchewan is one of the youngest provinces of the Dominion, says

Muusejaw is one uf the youngest cities uf the province. It is also oue
uf the largest. With a population
ahuut equal to that of Regina, tbe
scat of the local Government, Moose-
jaw is increasing with greater rapidity. It is the transportation centre
ol the province. The Cuiiadian Pacific Railway Co. have, this year, decided to make it the headquarters
for the new Grand Division of Saskatchewan.
More miles of railway are operated
out of Moosejaw than from any other
point iu the twu provinc s of Alberta
und Saskatchewan. In addition to
this it is the only city in Western
Canada having direct railway communication with Ut.  Paul.

The six-masted barquentine "Everett G. Griggs," claims the double distinction ol being the largest sailing
vessel on the Canadian Register, and
the only vessel of her type afloat.
When launched from the yards of
Messrs. Harland and Wolff at Belfast, in 1883. the "Griggs" was originally a four-masted barque. In 190H
she was dismasted and re-rigged as a
six-masted barquentine with double

the son of the captain.
Registered at Victoria, B.C., the

record for walking two miles in New

But for the Cuticura Remedies I might

So uneventful was the life of thia
•ountry lawyer in that remote corner
ef the world that his mime would
kave perished in oblivion had he not
been fortunate enough to enter
How he got there Is a question that
ffonoratlon after generation of lawyer,
have been asked by sceptical clients.
It has been answered in two different
ways, each of which makes a legend
that is interesting. One mediaeval
chronicler describes the event aa
Yves died, a. anyone else dies, the
Bum of his years complete. His body
remained here under the ground to
await the last judgment at that terrible
tribunal before which we shall have
ho other advocate hut ourselves, our
secret virtues, our silent good deeds.
And the soul of Yves, free and ingenuous, flew up und presented itself
before the pearly gate, of puradiso.
At the door sfood St. Peter, and before the gate was . group of nuns
.waiting entrance. Of one ot the
ei.ters St. Peter asked:
"Who are you?"
"We are religion.." replied the
nun. And St. Peter, not unkindly
but perhaps u little hastily, answered:
"Oh, you can wait. We have
plenty of nuns here."
Then, noticing Ym de Kaermatin
standing silent and deferential, he
"And who nre you?"
"A lawyer," answered Yves.
"Come in," cried St. Peter; "we
have no lawyer here yet."
This ia a very old story. Yet in the
remote nge when it was born, lawyer,
had already become subject, for ma-
licious pleasantry.

Judges at the British Hunters' Improvement Society's Show, is among

Not only in Ireland, but In England, too, the owner of Killarney is
looked upen a. a singularly able critic of horseflesh. When in the ring
he invariably rides his own horses,
which are trained and schooled at
Lisnagree, the earl's hunting box at
Charleville. This district the earl regards as the best schooling ground
in the world for young horses.
Lord Kenmare is an ardent sportsman, and has followed the Meath,
Ware, and Kildare hounds for several
seasons. The Kenmare acres amouut

The Archbiatop of Canterbury il
known among his friends as especially partial to two things, children and

the following story against himself:
A. Bishop *l London, he was one
day walking in thc suburbs of the
British capital when he chanced up-
o.i a little girl who was standing looking up somewhat wistfully at a four-
barred gate. "Oh, please, sir," she
asked, "will you open this gate lor
Smiling upon the demure maiden,
tii. bishop lifted the lutch and pushed
back the gate, but, in spite of its site,
at swung so easily that he said,
"You're such a big little girl that I
should think ynu could yourself have
opened so nie* n gate a. this."
"Oh, I cowfd. sir," she replied,
"l'it then I sWul. have got my hands
all over fresh puint." 1:1 then the
bishop saw Bat that was just what
had happenei to him.

elocution in tlie Normal School, Toronto, I think it is safe to say that
every unengaged male stude.it was in
love with her, and the male student,
formed a pretty large proportion in
thoae days too. Her success as a
teacher was equalled by her platform
successes, and 11 good many Canadians have always felt a certain grievance against Dr. Charlton Black for
carrying her as his bride away to dis.
tant Boston. Even there Mrs. Black's
talents could not be hidden, and she
is now dean of a college whose name
1 cannot for the moment recall.
Then there is Agnes C. I.aut,
teacher, journalist and historian, who
after completing her education in
Winnipeg taught in the city schools
fur a time. Later she joined the
Staff of the "Manitoba Free Press,"
and soon fount, her feet in the journalistic arena. As a special correspondent she is among the elect, and
the editor who secures her services is

about publishing "Sowing Seeds io

turned the scale in its favor. Learning that the author was a Canadian,
she read the manuscript and r.commended it. publication. In this instance she has done us all a good

Cameron — A.D.C.—aide-de-camp to
the Canadian Commissioner of Immigration. Born in sunny Victoria, she
began to teach before she was out of
short dresses, and for twenty-five
years she has been closely identified
witli the schools of her native province A few years ago while holding
the position of principal of South
Park School, Victoria, she had a dispute with her trustee board and resigned. Then she ran for trustee and
had the satisfaction of being elected.
It was ubout this time that she
took up journalistic work, writing ol
Canada's wheatfields. Her success
was immediate, and in 1908 she made
a notable journey into the Northland,
covering in all about ten thousand
miles. This trip furnished her with
material for a book, a number of brilliant magazine articles, and a breezy
lecture, "From Wheat to Whales."
Miss Cameron is now employed by
the Immigration Department in special work in England; and it is rumored that she will publish another
book this spring. Her style is most
original, and this little description of
the English remittance-man is characteristic :

Was Weak, Nervous, Run-down and
Suffering from Rheumatism —
Dodd's Kidney Pills made her a
New Person.
Bonuvallon, Alfa, (Special).-Women who an- nervous, inn-down ami
suffering from Kliotiuiuti.sm, cannot
fail lo he interested in the ease of
Miss Gertrude 13. Rcyoinc, of this
place. She wns exactly in that condition. To-day she is as she puts it
herself "rt new person." Dodd's Kidney Pills cured her. Here is her
.statement given for publication.
"My kidney disease stalled from a
cold two years ago. Rheumatism
set in, and I was weak and nervous,
and in a run-down condition. I was
attended hy a doctor who did not
appear to understand my case. Three
boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills made al
new person of me."
fs not Miss Reyomo'B condition an
exact, description of nin_.-tOJ.thfl of
the ailing women of Canada? The'
doctor did not understand her case.
It was simple enough. It was Kidney Trouble. And Kidney Disease
is the one groat cause of women's
troubles. Dodd's Kidney Pills always cure it.
Canada's One  Boast,
Most Canadians are r -arc of the
love of statistics which characterize
their cousins across the line. They
all know where their native cities
rank in sice in the Union, and can
tell as many other interesting fact*
is a guide b-^k. A man from tin-
United States was recently taking-
lunch with a Torontonian and by waj
of entertainment he gave facts about
lis own town, lt had a picture gal
'ery which ranked seventh on thr
continent; its park system stood about
Ifth, and he told some ot its perfections; there was a spire on one of
the churches which stood well to the
top in height; and different nwmufnc
lories were also leading in their special lines. Then he turned tu comparing different things in the United
States with corresponding things in
Canada, and the Toronto man found
that he always had to remain silent
when overshadowed because he was
so  ignorant of the exact  figures.
The talk turned upon railroads, and
the champion of Uncle Sam told
some startling fvts about the lines
in his country.
At last the Canuck was sure of his
ground. "Well," he remarked, "your
railroads may be longer, but I feel
sure that ours are just as wide."

Census taking  in different
An Article of Special Interest   '
At the census enumerator of the
Dominion is now neing taken, the
following article on "Census taking
in Different Countries" will be of In
terest to many of our readers.
"Census taking Is a practice of
great uutUiulty going back to a,(mil
or 4,(1110 years lt. C. In Uabylonla,
China and Hgypt. In ancient Homo,
whence we obtained tho word "census" the enumeration was minute
and full, comprising tbe numbers and
respective classes of all Iroe persons
and their relation to thc head of the
house. Slaves wero also counted and
landed property was clnssined according to its character and produce. The
Roman census was iiuintiuennlnl from
430 B. 0, to the niicklng of the city
in A. D. 410.
Amongst the Israelites an enumeration ot the people was made In thc
wilderness 13 months after fiultting
Bgypt, and thc first chapter of the
book of Numbers describes arrangements under which Moses and Aaron
as chief commissioners were assisted
by 12 enumerators, one for each
tribe. Prom the result, of thin census we learn tbat thc population of

wo may estimate—nssumlug an average ot six dependents upon each warrior—that lbe total population ut the
time of tbo otodus was Upwards of
3,000,1100. Hebrew enumerators were
strictly tribal, and Jewish custom
was respected by the Romans ln the
decree of Caesar Augustus that nil

Passing over tbc mediaeval Inquiries of Charlemagne and "Willium the
Conqueror we come to the gradual Institutions of modern times, of periodical censuses. To Canada, It is
utated, belongs thc credit of holding
the tlrst of those, as a census wm

Sweden took a census in 174s.
The first Census hill in Mngland

A census enumeration is usually effected upon one or two principles; it
may be either 'de jure' or 'de facto;'
by the former system the people are
counted according to domicile wheth
er actually present or not at the
time of enumeration, whereas in
a 'de facto' census unly those actually present iu a Riven place at a given
time are counted. The lli;at Ilritish
census wun taken in ISOI, and it has
been decennial .-tinn* that date. Up
to the present each census has been
the subject of u special Act of Parliament; It is taken on the 'de facto'
system, and the census of the present
year sought to record every person
living on the night of Sunday April
2. Hitherto British censuses have
heen limited to simpl? enumerations,
ol tho people by means of u single
schedule; but the Census of Production Act 1006, provides for the taking by the Hoard of Trade of a periodical census of production, and the
first census under this act was taken
in 1908 in respect of the year  19(17.
In the new Commonwealth of Australia the first federal census was
taken on April 3rd last, on the same
general principle as that of thc
mother country, but a new departure
in respect of method was made by
the adoption of personal and householders' cards instead of schedules.
A card is required to be filled up for
every person and lor every household!
ou the former are collected all tlie
usual particulars and on the lutter
the nature of the building and a summary of the members of the household hy uex. The card system Is also adopted in some European countries.
Mr, G. H. Knibbs, G.M.G., P.S.B.,
in a pamphlet ent i-led "Notes on the
First Commonwealth Census," mentions, as showing the dlibculty in
drat ting absolutely unambiguous
ijuestions, that at the last census ia
Western Australia a reply received to
tue question "Length of residence;
if not horn iu Western Australia,
state length of residence therein,"
was, "86 teet half block," while In
several other casus the "lengtn of residence" waa stated to he tixK, evidently referring to a tent of those dimensions.
un the European continent the census bus au important relation to
military conscription; it is generally
both 'ue jure' aud 'de facto,' absentees being recorded at tbeir usual
homes and also as temporary residents elsewhere, the two records being afterwards compared and the
necessary adjustments made. In
iVrunce, where the census bas beeu
.|Uinu,uenulal since 1878, the decentralised system of local government
throws much of the work both ot
enumeration and tabulation upon the
local authorities. Each commune is
divided into enumeration units of luu
Inhabitants, with a controller for
every L.llUO inhabitants. The required
information is collected upon an Individual uml a household schedule;
the former has to be tilled up for
every person present Including infants. Upon the household schedule
are recorded particulars concerning
the members of the household present, those absent, and temporary
rosidents such as travellers, soldiers,
students, etc. Altogether about 12
forms are used for the census Upon
which tabulations and reports are
made by the mayors of communes for
transmission to the prefects ot departments and by tbe latter for ultimate transmission to the Department
ot Labor iu Parts, lu Uelgulm the
administrative arrangements for tbe
decennial census aro somewhat similar, but tho principal schedule records
VI names. In Germany, where tbe
census is quinquennial, and In Austria where it is decennial, tlie duty
of enumeration devolves largely upon
proporty owners or tholr agents.
In the United Stales a decennial
Census has been taken since 17!M) in
the last year of each decade, In HHI2
Congress passed an act establishing a
permanent consus olrlco, while in 11109
it was enacted that a censtlB of live
stock and agriculture should be taken
in 1911. and every ten years thereat-

propouou tuac the Hritish Columuia
uutlioutles uuoiild co-operate in tbe
park plains by setting aside a section
on the west ny the Flathead river
aud irom i'l to in miles north and
south. Speaking oa the subject today
Game Warden Williams did not appear entirely to favor the plan,
speaking ou it us follows:
"oui ..ast Kootenay reserve is not
lar away,'' be saidl "and is a much
better game country, its boundaries
are well denned aud we ure able to
protect it carefully, lt also possesses
winter and summer feeding grounds
tor game. 'There is no reason at present for thc disturbance of game in
this park through tbe granting of
mining uud timber leases, while I am
told that the section in the southeastern part of the province wblcb ls
proposed to he taken in with Glacier
aud Waterton lake parks is covered
with coal, oil and timber leases. Furthermore it is without winter range
for deer and wapiti, which all go
soutb across thc boundary line from
that portion of the province for the
colder months or else migrate to the
Kootenay valleys." The boundaries of
the proposed park are not very well
delined and owing to the location of
the tract in question it will be somewhat difficult for the British Columbia authorities to enforce the game
regulations of the province. One ot
my greatest objections is tbat Bhould
game Increase it is more likely to
Alberta or Montana than to stay in
British Columbia owing to the nature of tho country in that particular
district. Tbe othcr parts of the preserve would get the overflow to our
disadvantage. In any event the operation of one large park by two or
three governments is never very likely to prove successful. We bavo
practically enough game areas in
Hritish Columbia for the present."

ross the Held at a speed muter thnn
the host horse or mule tan walk,
breaking 40 acres a day for tho price
of one gallon of lubricating oil for
thc entire work. This means 25 cents
for*breaking an acre 6t ground, tbut
with horses, would cost $8 on ncre.
But there iH another Mc to it. Except a farmer cultivates ono thoutand
acres ho cannot afford one of the
monster machines, and thus will go,
must go, the farmer of snail holdings, unless a score or so of the latter should combine to own one in
common, and that ia undesirable for
the reason that too many cooks spoil
the broth. Ours Is an age of wonders, and here is au Invention that
enables two farmers to do the work
nf more than a score of the farmhands of a score of yen™ ago. Yet
farm products command more than
twice the price in the market tbey
brought in 1896. Of course, these big
machines are not for a broken tt un-
try. made up of bills nnd hollows.
Tbey am for the prairies, but smaller ones may he constructed for the
fanner of narrow acres. Word comes
from Sweden that a man there has
perfected the storage electric battery
that Thomas A. Edison has been
striving for for years; and if he has,
the gasoline motor for held and road
must give place tfi thc electric. That
again, will be a triumph of cheapness, antl we may expect an acre of
corn land to be ploughed .for 10 cents.
But ploughing and cultivating arc
not all tlie work this machine cau
do. It is promised that by its agency cows will he milked, crops bar-
vested and garnered, hay cured, and
what not."
