preiieut, it i.i a poetical   description
winch in a very short    time will    be.
inappropriate     Ior, au yuu also well
aald, the Prince, In Hie Bhape of the
Canadian  I'acilic  Hallway   Company,
han appeared on the scene,
1 waa talking recently with a prominent traveller [rom the United
State*, and he remarked. "As a
playground, this haa got the rest of
the continent of North America
skinned." Not an elegant phrase,
perhaps, but expressive. To realize
the glories of the Columbia valley
one luu: to see It, aud, aa a few of
us old timerB Imve done, Live in it.
Hitherto, It Iiuh heen a little difficult
ol accent, to the ordinary tourist, I
but, a motor road in to be built by I
the 0. P. R. in conjunction with thej
Provtiuclal Government. Thia road
wlll be "The Highway ol the Great j
Divide," and will be, perhnpB, thej
most wonderful in the world, It will I
run between towering peaks and
glaciers ol the Rocky Mountains, and
wll) gradually drop from the summit
of the Rockies Into the valley of the
Great Columbia River Hero it will
continue in thc narrow valley separating the two groat ranges, the
Rockies and the Selklrks, amidst
scenery of unrivalled majesty und
grandeur, which will awe the most
blase globe trotter.
On the shore of Lake Windermere a
new town la to be established, named Invormere, and hern the company
intend to erect a chalet to accommodate tottrifltB. But it is not only as
a tourist resort and a world's playground thnt the Columbia Valley iB
destined tn come into prominence. It
Is an ideal location for British settlers, and the Canadian pacific Railway Company are equally interested
in ite development in that direction.
It iB well adapted for fruit growing,
and the Dominion. Government has
decided to establish immediately au
experimental farm in the centre of
the Valley, where a aeries of experiments will be carried on to determine
what apple trees are the most suitable to the district. Experiments
will also be made in the growing of
alfalfa and other valuable crops. At
this farm the settler will see how to
plant, prune and generally cultivate
fruit trees, aud the institution will
be a valuable object lesson and
guide. The Kootenay Central Railway now under course of construction, and which will connect with the
main line of the C.P.R., will provide
a means of trail sport whereby strawberries aud other small fruits picked
In the morning at Windermere will
be In the prairie market the same
day. This proximity to tlte prairies
will mean much to the growth of the
fruit industry of Columbia Valley,
as it Ib thero the great market for
British Columbia fruit exists. But
thero are other resources as well as
agricultural and horticultural. The
timber ia being converted into merchantable lumber, and tho mining industry will probably become evon
more active than It Ib now. Silver-
lead, copper and gold deposits arel
now beiug worked, these being principally in the Selkirk range.
Such, then, Is tho Land of Charm.
to which lovers of nature, sportsmen
and settlors are being invited. It la
a land ou mountains, vale, water and
sunshine. Health, simple but satisfying pleasures with tlio rod, gun and
canoe, and surroundings ever pleasing to tho oye await the newcomer.
Tbo hunter will Ilml gnme lu plenty,
bear, moose, doer nnd car Imu; thc
mountaineer has for a test of his
skill and nerve peaks as yet unsealed
by man, great glaciers that have yet
to be crossed and wonderful- canyons
waiting to be explored. And for the
settlers there will be in addition
polo clubs and grounds—an association was formed last year to encourage the breeding of horses—a golf
club and course, motor boating and
canoeing. Bach and every sport
dear to the heart of the Britisher
Will be available, and In a land
where a steady income Ib assured
from fruit growing and mixed farming.
A large Irrigation scheme is now
being established which will be an
Important factor in the development
of tbe district. When the fertile
benches are covered with hundreds of
prosperous orchards and happy homes
made possible through thc life-giving
water, and when the noble fir has
given place to the apple tree with
Ur beautiful blossom—in short, when
"The Bleeping Beauty" is fully awake
—then will the Columbia Valley he-
come tho fairest spot in our fair
Dominion.

Recognized
Mineral
Centre
The Vancouver Exhibition which iB
to be held August _s to September 4
Is making every effort to establish a
representative mineral display thnt
will be a credit to one of tlie leading industries of British Columbia.
Thej have arranged with the Qrcal
Northern Railway Co., the Qanauinn
Northern Railway Co., tiie Grand
Trunk Pad tie Railway Co., and expect to compiote arrangements with
the Canadian PaciUc Railway Co.,
whereby exhibits of ore from all lines
und points in the Province, including
Cranbrook, will be brought to the
the Exhibition when properly boxed
free of charge.
It ia tho Intention of the Exhibition Association to sot aside a large
building for temporarily showing the
mineral resources of British Oolumbla, It le hoped that next year a
permanent building will be erected
when such exhibits as are accumulated from time to time will be on exhibition at Hastings Park and open
to the public all the year round
The Canadian Fairbanks Co.. of
Vancouver havo kindly ollered to install a Stamp mill in operation. Arrangements havo beeu made during
tho Exhibition to have some person
thoroughly acquainted with the
various minerals present who will give
talks several times a day calling attention to ttie resources of British
Columbia's mines. The Association
especially requests that any mini
owner, miner or prospector who will
co-operate with tho Association in
making these exhibits a success will
do so, and are specially requested to
send samples to some person who
will be arranged to receive same at
Cranhrook, and who will when the
shipment Is complete bill them to
the Vancouver Exhibition Association, Vancouver, and write also to
tlio Association stating whether you
wish the samples to he returned or
whether they will be allowed to be
retained by the Association to he
used in the permanent exhibits. It
is specially desirable that valuable
hand samples wlll be sent in and
these will be returned by the Association to the shippers.
Wo believe tbat this Is the first
time that a real eflort bas been made
to draw the attention of the travelling public and tourists to the valuable mineral resources of British
Columbia, and wo truBt thnt the
efforts on the part of the Exhibition
will be such as will receive the cooperation of the miners and those interested in mining.

matters pertaining to the conciliation board Just formed to InqUlro
Into the dispute herweeu the mine
workers and operators iu the Crow's
Nest Pass District, received notice hy
wire on Monday from Rev, C. W.
Gordon, chairman of the hoard, that

aud would arrive iu Lethbridgo oil |
Tuesday morning. Mr. McNiven at
once notified the other two members
ot the board and all will meet at
Lethbridgo on Wednesday and the
board will have its llrst meeting one
day earlier than was expected.
The order of business, scope of tho
inquiry, and other details will be de
cided at tomorrow's sitting, and it
Is thought that the real work nl the
board wlll be in full blast on Wednesday. Mr. McNiven and Secretary Carter left on Tuesday for
Lethbridge. The time of meeting at
different places will be arranged as
circumstances may determine, hut it
is thought that sessions will he held
at Lethbridge, Blairmore and Fernie,
though other places may be visited
before tho Inquiry closes.
Tho feeling at Fernie and Conl
creek Ib that a thorough examtna
tlon into . the causes which have
brought about so many disputes be
tween workers nnd employers should
be made, even nt the expense of more
time than would bo necessary for a
short and unsatisfactory inquiry
which would result in another compromise, which would have no lasting effect.

Canada Loyal to
Empire
Opposition of the Conservatives to Reciprocity
WHEN* OUR INTERESTS CLASH
Ottawa, April 26.—"Tho Conservative party will make no truce on the
question of reciprocity which involves
the national existence of the country
aud gravely affects its relations with
the empire."
This statement was given out today hy R. L. Bordeu, opposition
leader, after a conference of opposition members at which two members
of tho British Columbia government
Hon. W. J. Bowser, end Hon. W. R.
Ross, were proaent.
This means the Canadian opposition will continue Its filibuster until
the American senate has taken action, and possibly all summer.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and the other
Canadian ministers probably will
cancel their engagements at. the Imperial conference in London next
month, and at the coronation In
June, aa the government is determined to force reciprocity through and
will stay in the fight to the end.

Tbo tollowing circular on tho eradication ot bovine tuberculosis has
been Issued by (Vl. A. .lull, provincial
livestock commissioner:
"One of the most important problems which confronts the agriculturist and mor. particularly ilm dairymen ot Urltisb Columbia is the eradication ol bovine tuberculosis. The
serioue injury which this Insidious
disease in working on tho dairy industry in genera! iH uot sufficiently
realized. It is a disease which gains
entrance to the herd often without
the knowledge of the owner and it
may exist In one or more cows of the
herd fot some considerable time and
also it may spread rapidly without
auy apparent outward signs.     It   is
supplied  by tbe department of agrl-
0,     The only  request which is
of the    dairymen is   that tbey
| accommodate     the veterinary inspector while bib herd is 'jeing tested.
"If, when the test ie applUd, any
cattle are found to be diseased tbey
ate quarantined uud eventually
slaughtered, in tho presence of a veterinary inspector, and if the animal
aftei an inspector's inspection U not
fit tor beet compensation io a'lowed
by the government. The value of
tbc cow is at the discretion of the
inspector, the maximum value being
$125 for pure breeds, and J.75 for
grndeu, and on tho inspector's valuation 50 per cent compensation • ia
allowed. •
"it is possible that the general
public do not* realize the material
assistance tho government is giving
them "*by compensating tbem for all
slaughtered animals which are sheeted with tbe disense. This Ismore than
is being done in any ofner part, and
tho responsibility of completely eradicating the disease largely hen with
the dairymen. While compensation
Is being granted it is their opportunity to take advantage of the government assistance and It is also the
a disease which saps the vitality   of, dairymen's responsibility to ice that
thu cow ami niter it bus advanced
sulllclently affect- the quantity of
milk giveu, at' well as the bruediug
qualities of its victim. It may be
transmitted from one cow to anoth-
ei, which fact, emphasizes the importance of its eradication. Also It
may bio transmitted from the cow to
tbc hog und, in fact, this ls the
principal source of infection among
our herds of swine.
"Hritish Columb a has probably
not had so much of the disease as iu
othei' parts whore the dairy industry
has been highly developed, such as
in some of the eastern states. However, wo have enough to givo sufficient cause to take every precaution
ior its eradication. While thero is
yet little ot it we should see to it
that it is entirely eradicated in order that our dairymen may be in a
position to tirccd healthy herds and
produce wholesome milk.
"While there are many features
concerned in the eradication of this
disease, and while various methods
have been adopted iu other parts, it
Ir to bo seen that in British Columbia the work bad been progressing
favorably. One significant feature
In oui work is tho co-operation on
thc part ol the dairymen. Mauy of
our dairymen are anxious to maintain herds free from the disease and
are having their herds tested, and
premises Inspected, by the provincial
veterinary Inspectors, of which there
arc four in tbe province, Ou the
otber hand, many of the dairymen,
have little or no knowledge of thej
disease and do not realize the impor-1
tauce of Its eradication. This department has been carrying on educational work throughout the province, in an endeavor to show our
dairymen the nature of the disease
and why It should bo eradicated
from out hords. Inspection work
lui.-i also been undertaken tor some
time and nny Inspection which Is
done, to be official, mu.it he done by
the provincial voterlnary Inspectors.
All dairies that are Inspected are
graded Into four different grades—A,
D, 0 and D, according to the sanitation nml equipment or the premises,
Tin.BHO_.l_IN TEST.
"The only way  lu  which  the pros
our herds ure entirely free from   tbe
disease.
"Any one wishing to have their
herds tested and tbeir dairy promises
Inspected should apply to Dr. A.
Knight, chief veterinary inspector,
Snrdfs, B. 0., under whose charge
the work Is being carried on. It ts
to be hoped that every dairyman will
have his herd tested and Inspected
regularly so that all milk which is
being uspd tor human consumption
may be as wholesome as possible,
and that our herds may be ai free
as possible from this disease.

was already the wife of Bnllmeyer.
'She day In which Muthllde had decided to tell blui the story of (be past,
which must clear up the present with
a tragic light to the eyes of tbe professor, already warned by the myster- .
les uf tbe (_land.er-t.-i* day when, fulling at bis feet, she had told him the
story uf bor youth, Professor Stangerson bad raised the form of his beloved
child from the ground and bad pressed
her to his heart; he bad mingled his
tears with the sobs of her whose fault
had boon so bitterly expiated and had
sworu that she bad never been more
precious than since be bad known how
Bhe had suffered. Hut he when she ■
left his presence was another man—a ,
man alone, all alone. Professor Stangerson had lost Ids daughter and his
goddess.
He hnd experienced only indifference

Matbllde,   with   the   warmest   tender*

old feeling In tbe heart of her father

Evidently she was Instinctively
drawl) toward Itouletubllle by ull the
mysterious forces of maternal affection, In spite of the fact tbut she hud
every reason to believe that her child
bad died years before.
She showed for her husband tbe
most charming solicitude, She was attentive to him at every moment, serving him hcruel., und smiling gently at
bim as she did so.
If tbe design of Larsan In showing
himself bad been lo deal u frightful
blnw to a happiness which had yet
scarcely begun, he had completely succeeded Muthllde bad given Darzuc
at once lo understand that she did not
regard herself as bis wife, since the
uuiii to whom she had pledged herself
In ber early girlhood was still living.
1 bavo said Unit Mai hllde Stangerson
hud been brought up In a very religious manner, uot by her father, who
cared little for such things, but by her
female relatives, especially her old aunt
In Cincinnati. 1 might have passed
over these religious beliefs of Matbllde
In silence If they had not had so strong
au influence on the resolution which
she lind taken In regard to her second
husband when she discovered that her
first husband was still alive, lt had
seemed to her thnt Larsan's death bad
been proved beyond the slightest doufct,
tind she had gone to her new husband
ns n widow with the approval of ber
confessor. Aud now she learned that
In the sight of heaven she was not a
widow, but a bigamist!
Leaving the Dnrziics, my eyes wandered to the neighbor of Mme. Darzac,
M. Arthur William Ita nee, when they
wore suddenly arrested by the butler's
coming to sny that Iterator, the concierge, requested to speak to Itouletabllie.   My friend left the room.
"What!" I tried. "'Tbe Bomlers arc
no longer at the Clandler?"
[tenders of "The Mystery of rhe fellow Room" will recall that these Her-
tilers—the man and tils wife—were the

of their devotion. As the Itunces hnd

to send them his faithful domestics, of
wbnui he had never bad reason to complain except for one slight Infraction
of the game laws, which had .urnt4
out most unfortunately for them. t*w*t
thpy were lodged lo one or the tow«»»
of the posloru. where they kept the

The unexpected exit of Rouletubllle
sent a chill to my In-art and seemed to
spread a general sensation of alarm
throughout the company, Mme. Dar-
sale was very restless And because
Muthllde showed herself to be disturbed nnd nervous I fancied that Arthur Ranco thouglu thai it buboovefl
him to display some little anxiety
Arthur fiance and bis wife were noi
aware of the whole of the unfortunate
story. It bad soumed useless to Inform
tbem of the fad "f Mathilda's secret
marriage to Jean Ruussei, afterward
known ji* Larsan That was something which concerned only lbe family Hut they were fully aware of the
way in which tin* secret service flgont
had pursued Mine Dannie. Thecrlmes

of Arthur Ranee by a mad passion for
Muthllde, the Indications of an Insane

In Edith's eyes as she watched her
husband gazing at Matbllde. Ah, those
black eyes of geutle Mme  fc-dltt.;
Matbllde asked me where I thought
Rouletubllle bad gone As she left the
dining room I walked with her to the
entrance to the fort l'arzac aud
Mine. Edith followed us, Stangersou
bad bidden us good uight. Arthur
Ranee, who had disappeared for a
moment, joined us while we were at
the passageway. The uight was clear,
and the moon shone brightly, as we
passed beneath the uni. we heard
Rouletabllie's voice.
"Come on'. Oue mure effort I" he
cried, and tbe voice which answered
him was husky and panting. The two
portals uf the Immense Iron doors
slflmmed. They were closed for tbe
tlrst time In u hundred yenrs.
Mme. Edith looked astonished at tbe
net Of her guest and asked what bad
happened to tbe gate, which bad always served III place of the doors.
Rut Arthur Ranee .caught her urm,
Impressing upon her that she must
keep silence.
Rouletabllle announced that if any
of ua had any desire to mate a trip to
the village we must give It up. for the
order had gone forth, and no oue
could leave the chateau or enter lt.
Pero Jacques was charged with tbe
carrying out of the commnnd, and
every one knew that It was Impossible
to bribe the faithful old servitor.
Pere Jacques, whom I hnd known so
well ar the (.landlor, bad accompanied
Professor Stangerson as bis valet.
Thut night he was sleeping In a tiny
closet In "la Louve," uear bis master's bedroom, but Rouletabille bad
changed Unit, and It wns Pere Jacques
wbo took tbo place of tbe concierges
lu the tower marked A.
"Uut where ure tbe BernlersV" cried
Mme. Edith.
"They ure Installed In the square
tower In the room ou tbe left, near
the entrance. They are to act as caretakers of (be square tower," replied
Rouletabllle.
"Rut tbe square tower doesn't need
any caretakers," exclaimed Edith.
"Tbat, luudame." returned the young
reporter, "Is what we cannot be sure
of."
Ile made no further explanations,
but he took Arthur Uance to one side
and Informed him that he ought to
tell his wife about (be reappearance of
Larsun. If there was to be the slightest chance of biding tbe truth from
Stangerson lt could scarcely be accomplished without the uid and Intelligence of Mme. Edith. Aud, tben,
too, It would be us well henceforward
for all of those lu the Fort of Hercules to be prepared for everything
and surprised ut nothing,
The next act of Rouletabllle was to
make us walk across the court and
place ourselves ut the postern which
cuiuniuuded the eutrunce to the luner
court, but ut that point the moat bad
been (Hied up. Kouletuhllle declared
that ho Intended to have tho moat dug
out and tu replace the druworidge.
Al the newly funilied postern Rouletubllle had stationed no oue, for he
reserved that place that night for
himself. From there he could obtain a
complete view ot both the Inner and
j outer courts. Une could reach tbe

I sweet, a proof that it hud nothing to

He   walked   for  a   few   steps   with

I  leave  of   us   and   entered   the  square
'  tower.    Darzac and Arthur Ranee, at
j   tbe request  of  Roilletabltlo,  remained
|  with us.    Some  words of excuse ud-
I dressed to Mme   Edith mude her understand that she  was being politely
asked to retire, and she bade us good
night with a nonchalant grace.   Route
tahille beckoned  us-tlie men-townrd
the postern into (he little room of tbe
gardener,  a  dark,   low  celled  apartment.    There  Arthur  Ranee,  Robert
Darzac, Rouletabllle and myself without even lighting o lump beld our flrst
council or war. !
"We may make our plans here In
tranquillity." began RoulMnbllle. "No
one can hear us. aud we shall not he

should attempt to puss (he tlrst gate.

Hance."
1 listened to Rouletabllle with admiration. Muie. Edith wus right, lie
had Indeed constituted himself a captain, and bu hud uot left oue Impregnable spot without defense.
Uouletubllle lit his pipe, took three
or four puffs and suld:
"Well, here wo are. Can wo hope
that Larsan, ufter having so Insolently Haunted himself befure ua, at our
very doors, lu order to defy us. wlll
confine himself to sneb u platonlo

What he has done, wlll Ue go away?

Satisfied with ti partial success, and,
second, because DO one uf us has tho

A FORGOTTEN REVOLT.
Seventy    Year.   Ago   There   Wat   11

"Indeed,"  said  my   mother,   who
was vi-itiug me in the West, "ymir
Kiel  rt hellion out  here  wai  not  the
Hrst Cunadlan   rebellion  among the
settlors: nnd the llrst one was about

"There wus a rebellion in Ontario
when we settled there, ami one that

the militia were culled out nml shut*

man   was killed.
"I was hut 11 child, seventy or mon1

that time they made quite a nam. foi
themselves and quite a scare for the
rest of the settlers, for they took tb-
crazy notion thnt now tbey were far
enough away from England thej
would have that hind for themselvo*
So they raised a form ol rebellion,
"They were camped at the site
where now is the town <,f Almonte
then called Shlpmun's Mills, and
Shipman was the leader of the militia when they were c. 'led out to put
down the trouble. The mi'.itla met
them at tbeir camp nnd tired Upon
tbem, and at least one man, named
Curran, was killed. Some pacifying
was done, by the priests 1 think, and
the matter was dropped soon; mo_1
of those that had caused the trouble
went to the States—that was the tint
ut the rushes to the States that in
those days look the place of the present rushes to the Canadian Wett.
The rush was to Cincinnati, Ohio,
which was much talked of as a good
place for settling.
"The lands of those who went away
were soon settled by others—but
many of tbem were good quiet people

his place being taken by a substitute.
Mr. Forget passed through the door

Miss Roddick's Embargo.
Miss Kimna Roddick is one of the
prime movers in the series of schemes
which were carried out in Montreal
within tbe past year to make tlie lot
of tne children in the crowded, poorer
districts a little happier. She is une
of the most active worker* iu the
Parks and Playgrounds Association.
This winter the association opened
a free slide for children on the lower
slope of Mount Royal, and Miss Roddick was ut work daily superintending the cares of the kiddies wbo
thronged to it. She was explaining
tlie scheme to a little group of newspaper men the other day.
"You see," she remarked. "We sup-
ply the toboggans for them and they
Aio allowed perfect freedom while they
are on the slide. They can enjoy
themselves as thy like.
"There is one thing, however, that
we make It an absolute rule tiiat no
child must do," she added.
"What is that," politely inquired
one of the scribes.
"No child is under any circumstances allowed to discuss reciprocity
while at the slides," Miss Roddick
boliiiniily  announced.

The elder Sherlock greeted his sun
with a pleaaaal "flood morning."
"Dad," Henry stammered, "1 want

"Whal's wrong now?"
"Everything."
"And lo particular!"
"Harah won't marry me until I du

"And you Intend"— ,
"To throw up the vice presidency,

"Very well. Wben do you wish to

"Tomorrow."
"All right.   I'll see fo tbe job."
That night his father said quietly:
"Report to the dispatcher at Erie.

of your youthful whims. Just as soon
as you learn lhe job you will be glren

"Good night," suld Henry and turned
to.
And the nest morning found him on
his way from New York to Erie with-
out having seen Harah. Happy In the
thought that be was to prove himself,
he a|ient uuwt of bis trip composing s
letter to her telling all and explaining
his departure without teeing ber.
The nest afternoon be reached Erie

he was tn lake. Then begun the uight
shift. As fur ns pupulutiuu wns concerned, Krle wus hardly ou Ihe mup,
but as a rullruud ihiIui II was most Important. It wns a division point of
consequence, us severul branches uf
the main line converged there.
Henry was given complete charge of
I brunch which boasted but four
trains, so It was easy fur him to tuke
care of the wire and Ihe train sheets.
Huw could he keep awuke? The sialic,, nlili its eozy Ore was almost
homelike eicepi for the feeling of
loneliness.
Ue worked on, continually cheered
by bis letters from home and Sarah
ind by his own satisfaction at dulng
Something well. And tbe first pay
day -could lbe bank hold bis flrst four
weeks' wages, his $30? Tben he wa,
given a really Important desk.
Rut soon he began to be discouraged.
Nothing hnpiiencd. There seemed to
be no wny tu prove himself. And
then the test cume.
In the middle of February came
probably tbe meanest and moat severe
■lorn, ever known lo that region. The
rain, chilled hy the lower air and falling on the colder objecta below, frote
■ud formed one continuous Ice sheet
•aveluplng everything below. Down
went tree*, fences, wires and brldgca-
work, work ulgtii and day for lbe repair gangs.
With Ihe wire* down, the railroads

Uu tracks sllpiiery. After sli hours

Hinder,, by Ills useless leg, he
seem,, tu mnke but little progress.
Would he never reach the oilier side!
He wus fast becoming exhausted when
he struck linn ground aud crawled out
of the wuler. Painfully be made his
wsy up lo a section shanty, where
were kept torpedoes for Jusl sucb an
emergency. He grasped Beveral and
hurried us fast as possible up the track.
He must give Ihe wurulng far enough
from tbe bridge to allow tbe racing
train time to stop.
Aud uow his Iron constlullon, which
wou him collegiate sporting fume,
served bim well.
Hut be must go faster. He had
but little time. He tried to walk on
bis broken leg. but It would not support bim. He must crawl again. Oh,
If he could only ruu, even for a admit*

distance be hears tlie whistle of Ibe
approaching I rain, Disappointed, he
stops his mud race nnd Uses the torpedoes securely to the truck.
Now he walls, but not for long. The
train reels around the curve. Surname
the torpedoes should full! But his
fears are groundless. As the train
passes, one torpedo after another explodes with a deafening mar, the
brakes are slummed ou, tbe engine and
coaches groan, creak and come to a
standstill.   Tbe train Is saved!
Exhausted and no longer upheld by
Ihe Intense excitement, he sunk down
unconscious. In this condition he was
found by the trainmen. From letters
In his pockets his identity was established aud became known throughout

Again the doctor examined lbe mnn

"Oh!" cried Sarah.

Tbe limited was detoured aver another railroad, and wben tbey reached

With her father and mother Sarah

After tbe accident she refused lo go

STRANGE AROUT
THOSE HATS
MYSTERIOUS DREAMS.
TWO HMABT HATH   OF THE IPASoW.
Years ago bats had trliuinlugs. A
box of feathers, roses und ribbons,
laee and velvet, odd ornuuients and
algrets was ln every woman's possession, from wblcb she trimmed a bal
or two eacb season with ber own fair
angers. Tbe velvet draped tbe crown.
Tbe aigret was for height, aud tbe
lace brightened lt up a bit and lent a
dressy air, and tbe dowers nestled ai
ttie base of tbe wlug to set the whole
thing off. Tbat was a but. And 1
cost If you were rich $12, and if you
were just worrying aloug ou a smut
salary tbe same effect was arrived ai
for about $<J.
But now lt ls quite different. Hat.

very little. A bare hut Is chosen
P'l ed an; where from, say, $4 to $2
in the nude, and tbeu It Is udorneo
perhaps with a single feather or qui!
or an odd looking ornament. It bus u
positively naked appearance, but It Is
chic. That's enough. But the marvel
oua part about lt ls tbat It cost* much
more than (be on> with lace and the
feather aud buckle. Sometimes there
Is nothing on (be cuapeau but a perk.
Utile rose about as big ns a baby's

and the hat costs $14, aud there you
are. The tuts illustrated are charm

Orangt Jelly In Baskets.
This makes a very pretty dessert:
Extract tbe Juice of six oranges nnd
one lemon. Tut two ounces of sugar
with It and let stand until the sugar
Is dissolved. Soak half an ounce of
gelatin In a little cold water until soft.
Add audit-lent water to tbe orange
juice to make nearly a pint, and to
this add the gelatin. Warm the whole
mixture until tbe gelatin Is fully dissolved, stirring thoroughly. Pour Into
your orange peel baskets and set away
In tbe cold to harden.
Orange Bankets.-Cut away part of
peel on one side of orange to form a
handle, leaving lower half as bowl of
the basket. Of course tbe pulp has
got to be taken out very carefully sn
as not to break tbe sklu. An easier

Phantasms of tht  Night That  Have
Caused a Sensation.
The Interest in the general election
iu \he British Islet gave wuy to the
MMfttloO caused by the evidence glv-
eu by Mr. Claude Sawyer iu the Wara*
tah otie, Mr. John Dickinson, who
>■•;.-. Ju. led thl Board of Trade inquiry
into the mysterious d:-appearance of
this Uoer Li-u.'t ii Durban und Cape
'I.imi last June, said ut the close, I
heartily cuugrutulale you, Mr. Suw*
yer, on being ulive and being here lo
give evidence." Mr. Sawyer told that
three or lour days before the ... lated
vessel reached Durban, bo hud "a
dream, which wan most unusual." He
hud booked tt first-clan passage from
Sydney to Cape Town by tbe VYara*
tab, and he seems to have fell anxiety before leaving Australian water*..
Three times he had a dreaming vision
of u man in u peculiur dress, who wis
holding in hi** n_lu hand a b'.OOdy
sword. "The second time it came, I
thought, 'I will ltuow il again', and
the third time 1 looked at il so intently that 1 could almost design it.
-word and ull, even now. Next day 1
mentioned the dream to a gentleman*
and he mi id, 'It's warning,' Th n I
began to think why I should bo wuru*
ed, and I wus anxious to leave lliu
ship."   lie loft il at  Durban.
Perhapi tho strangest story of a
dream at sea if that told by Oeorge
Burrow in the opening pages of "Tlie
Bib.e iu Spain." "1 was bound for
Lisbon. We passed Cape Kinisterre,
aud, standing farther out to sea,
speedily lost sight of land. Ou tbe
morning of the llth the seu was very
rough, aud a remarkable circuunitume
occurred. I was on the forecut.e,
discoursing witli two of the sailors,
One of them, who had hut just left
his hammock, said: 'I huve had a
strange dream, which 1 do not much
like, for,' continued be, pointing to
the mast, 'I dreamt thut I fell into
the sea from the cross-trees' He wa*
heard to suy this by several of the
crew besides myself
A moment later the captain of the
vessel, perceiving that Uie squall was
increasing, ordered the top-sails to
be taken in, whereupon this man,
with several others, instantly rati
aloft; the yard wns in the act of being hauled down, when a sudden
gust of wind whirled it round with
violence, and a man was struck down
from the cross-trees into the sea,
which was working like yeast below.
Iii a short time he emerged. I saw
his head on the crest of a billow, und
instantly recognized in the unforunate
man the sailor who a few moments
before had related his dream. I shall
never forget the look of agony he cast
whii*>t the steamer hurried past him.
. . . The poor fellow who p-rished
in this singular manner was a fine
young man of about twenty-seven, thn
ouly son of a widowed mother. He
was the best sailor on board, and was
beloved by all who Were acquainted
witli him."
May Knight Women.
In olden days they were not so
chary of recognizing feminine services. The abbesses of great nunneries used to be "knighted" and even
now there is a ohurming young
French woman, who, though, unmarried, is a countess in her own right
by reason of being the Ciianoinesse
of a religious order.
At present iu Englund there is
somethi'ig anomalous in the fact that
man takes all the titles, stars, and
ribands, as well ns place, power, and
money, and allows the women folk to
toil all their lives at inferior sa'arie*
and with no hone even of those ornamental rewards, such us coroncta and
orders, to which human nature is m
persistently attached.
It has been whispered, though, that
the two ladies who have been electe 1
Mayors of English towns, will be
knighted during this coronation year,
precisely as their masculine compeers will receive this honor at the
hands of King George.
The idea should be persistently
dwelt on, as tlie circulation of such
a rumor may lead to the foundation
of some order—with a title attached—-
whir can be bestowed on eminent
women, whether married, single or
widows.
A Luxurious Bath.
By next sprlug Miss Helen Miller
Gould wlll bave one of the largest of
private swimming pools at her country
home In Irvlugtoti on-the-Hudaon. Tbe
pool wlll measure 03 by 70 feet. It wlll
be Inclosed in a one story brick and
limestone building covering an area 65
by 105 feet. The exterior will conform
wtth the architecture of otber buildings on tbe estate. The Interior will be
fashioned after a Itoman bath, in Pom*
pellan style. There will be fountains,
with statuary, resting rooms and shower hatha. Tbe structure wlll cost about
$00,000.     	
A Long Rope.
One of tbe English exhibits at the
Brussels exhibition was un immense
coll of rope mude from cotton. Tbe
rope, which was one and one-half Inches In diauieter, measured 14,110 feet lu
one continuous length without pleclngs
of any kind and constituted a world's
I record for length. It has been estimated tbat were tbe Individual yams
of tbe three strands placed end to end
tbey would have encircled tbe earth
at tbe equator and then have left
enough to reach 1,890 miles.
Keep tht Prolific Sow.
lo It not a serious mistake to fatten
a good sow for market ufter she has
weaned her litter? If the sow la a
good producer she is entitled to a good
home on the farm as long tn she Is
profitable. Market the poor producers
and keep (he good ones. Tlie sow Is
the best and quickest money irnk-r ou
'he farm, and she bas never done bet-
er work than right now wben prtcaa

Reprobate's Disturbed Slumber.
Dr. / rtnstrong Robinson, Dean of
Westminster, who has been transferred to the Deanery of Wells, Somerset, a position which will not entail such a strain upon his health as
life in the Metropolis, was the last
canon appointed by the late Lord
Salisbury, and the first deun to gain
preferment under Mr. Balfour's regime as Prime Minister.
Dr. Robinson is a scholar of the
first rank, and is an impressive
preacher. He does not mince his
words when he wishes to drive home
a point, and beneath a somewhat
austere appearance there lurks a refreshing capacity for humor.
One of his best stories is about an
old reprobate who had decided to repent, and announced to everyone that
whatever wrong he had done should
be made right. So one of the villagers to whom he owed a big sum of
money, went round to his cottage at
midnight to demand it. "Rut what
did you come at this hour for and
wake me up? Why not wait until to.
morrow?" asked the old sinner. 'I
came early," said the other, "to avoid
the crush!"'
Soma Curious Taxos.
From time to time the exchequer of
Great Britain hns been replenished by
singular taxes. Henry VIII, taxed
beards, and graduated thc tax accord
ing to the status of the wearer. The
Sheriff of Canterbury was constrained
to pay the sum of 3s. id. for the
privilege of sporting his veiiembl •
whiskers. Queen Kliznbeth fixed u
similar tux on every beard owr a
fortnight's growth, and bent on mak
ing uu example of people who did uot
attend church imposed a fine for ah
senee. In lll.K> il was decided that
ihe arrival of every child in the world
.should be greeted with a tux. Thu
birth of ii child to a duke cost the
futile- ll&u. whilst the advent of n
commoner', child with hailed hy a tux
d 50 cents. Moreover, it was an ex
pensive mutter to die, a- it is, in
deed, in this year of grace I UK), with
tho exacting of death dues. Bache
tors and widows were compelled to pay
for the privilege of single blessedtiesi
it was due to William l'itt thai the
window-tax was instituted, and in th--
reign ol Qeorge I. ii was necessary
to have a license in order to sell hut*.
Then there was a tax mt hair powder
and another was laid on watches and
clocks. In the reign of Oeorge 111
a duty ot UU cents wus imposed on
bricks. Al a later period in the same
reign, bricks were divided tor the pur
pobe of taxation into common and
dressed bricks, and the duty on eacb
kind ot brick was regulated according
to its site,

"TAG  DAYS" ABROAD.      ,
Flowers Aro  Used  Instsad of Bits of
Cardboard.
"Tag day" is almost as popular In '
Europe as In the I tilted States.   This '
custom of selting apart a time at which |
young people  may  sell  bits of paste
board on (he street lo passersby witb
tbe ideu of nil lug funds for charitable
purposes original-d in Sweden, but Is
being adopted in the neighboring countries.   The foreign  methods, however,
are far more attractive than ours, he-
cause, in the llrst place, the sellers do
not go about It lu such an aggressive
maimer and. secondly,  because they
sell   (lowers  Instead  of hideous card
board dangling ou a string.
Two Herman cities illustrate the success of tbe plan to get mouey. At Cas
eel, In August, the "taggers" netted
about 100.000 marks by selling blue
rugged sailors, and In Wiesbaden they
made 35,000 murks lu a day through
the sale of daisies, the "Dowers of
charity," as thiy ure called. Tbe reason for the larger results In Cassel
muy be found In thu fact that the kill
ser was staying there at the time, ami
his example of paying lio marks In
stead of 10 pfennigs apiece for his
blue Mowers tired the citizens of the
towu lo be proportionately generous.-

the kitchen, after the meul is prepared,
tbe gus range will disappear through a

During thc proposed visit of the
King and Queen to Ireland they wlll
reside at thc Vice-Regal lodge. On
the last visit of Queen Victoria she
occupied the vice regal lodge during
thc whole period ol her visit and on
two ol the three ocenstons on which
King Edward visited Ireland the
res:a! lodge was selected .as thc plac-
ol h;« residence. At present nltorn
tions and improvements aro being
carried out at both » the vice regal
lodge and the castle.
While this will he thc llrst visit ol
King Oeorge with his consort to
Dublin since his accession to the
throne, he ia well acquainted with
Ireland. Six years ngo, when
prince ol Wnles, he was the guest ut
Lord Ardilnun In County (Itilway.
Upon leaving Galway he wont to
Dublin where a state ball was given
in hi,' honor at the castle by tbe
viceroy.
The King nnd Queen visited Ireland
when duke and duchess of York, iu
1897. Tboy arrived August 18 and
their state entry was marked by
most onthusiastlc scenes. On the
80th thc duke received addresses In
the throne room ot Dublin castle,
and afterwords took the oath as n
member of the privy council in Ireland. Subsequently he and Lord
Roberts wero Invested its knights of
St. Patrick. On August 19 the
royal visitors left this city ou a
tour in tho south and west of Ireland, afterwards visiting Belfast.
Thoy wore received with expron
slotiH of the good will from the
wealhier classes, nntl there is no ros-
son to loal thnt their welcome wlll
be less hearty when thoy come bore
In July.
The unnotincomont bos already
been made of tbeir intention to visit
Snitlnnil soon ufter the coronotlon,
when tbey will hold a levee and a
court in Holyroad palace. This will
bo the King's second visit to the
northern part of inn kingdom since
his accession. During Inst Autumn
he spent ovor two months with the
queen nnd tlte members of his rami
ly nt Balmoral, hut owing to the
recent death of King Edward the
time was then spent quietly in
countryside nccunatlohs nml In duties ol state. In anticipation of the
forthcoming visit to Holyrood extensive alterations are bolng made
at the palace. Troops will be massed here while the monnrchs are In

Britain on any provlous visit. He
expects tho greatest immigration tbis

Mr. Hcott predicts that there will

ol all is that the quality ol the im-

train in a great Idea. It would be
hard to exaggerate the educative value of Huclt trains, ami I hope lhe example of the Pullman Agri-ultural
College of Watihinp,ton will he rollow-
ed In thia province."
Such whs tbe statement of air. W.
Agriculture and perinnnuiiout cinei of
the Agricultural Department of Brit
ith Columbia, who recently returned
from a trip through the Kootenays.
Deputy Minister Scott repntH-mted
the Provincial government in welcoming and accompanying the olt.eialH of
Pullman Agricultural College—in
the State College of Washington--
tbeir demonstration tour through
the Kootenay. He left Victoria on
March 21, and performed tho official
ceremony of welcoming the visitors
from the Washington Agricultural
College at Nortliport, on tbe American border, on March 'I'd. The town
gave Its visitors a big banquet In the
evening, at which Mr. Scott spoke
on the work of the Agricultural Department in British Columbia, particularly In regard to the work done
by tbe Farmers' Institutes in tbe
province. Prom Northport, tbe demonstration train proceeded to
Frultvalo, where some of tbe farmers came from over 20 miles ta witness the demonstration, given by tbe
party.
The demonstration train, said Mr.
Scott, consisted of nine coaches. At
each stop, lectures were given from
the train by tbe various professors
who accompanied the enterpriser The
coach—all tbe demonstration coaches
being, of course, open-was devoted
to livestock. In It were cattle, pigs,
sheep and poultry..,, The second car
contained some fine fruit trees, between Ave and seven years old, on
which practical demonstrations were
given tn pruning and "spraying, with
iectureH on the different branches
of horticulture. . The third wae a
horticulture car, on which domons-
strationa were givon in budding and
grafting. Samples were shown of
the different fungi and insect pests,
with their curative treatment. Var-
tools used ior orchard cultivation
were also exhibited in the car. Tbe
fourth car was full of mode poultry
houte.s, different breeds of live poultry, and eggs and poultry food exhibits. Demonstrations were given
from this car lu tbe balanced rations
of food, and in the use of incubators
and brooders. Next followed the
dairy car, from which tho profensor
in charge explained the Babcock tester, the different makes of separators,
and all tin* latest appliances for producing absolutely sanitary milk.
Models were shown of tbe latest hygienic dairy barns, cattle sheds aud
milk houses, and specimens of the
balanced rations to cows to obtain
the best results.
The sixth car was devoted to domestic science. Kivo ladies were in
charge of tbis car, which proved of
the greatest interest to women.
These ladies gave practical lessons in
cooking, Howing, etc., with lectures
on hygiene in tbe homo, Tbc cur
was equipped with a number at tbe
latest labor-saving appliances.
"The women of British Columbia"
added Mr. Hcott, "badly veed
new labor-saving appliances. Only
those who have lived there, know tho
enormous burden nf work that falls
upon women who dwoll on ranches.
Anything that tends to lesHon tbe
all-to-heavy labor of women on the

located that a very tittle effort would
improve ibe surroundings tu a measure thut in unattainable under urban
conditions.    One notes     with  regret ,
that thf attention paid to this im ;
por tant    mat tor is    not increasing .
with any degree of rapidity, and, SO
far,  too many  rural  home surround '
iugs remain as tbey buve been ban,
homely, barren und desolate,    it is
surprising thut In the older settled
parts of Canada we find even now ui
very large portion ol the farmer's
homes huve few trees planted about |
them, and no shrubs, or flowers, or j
graceful vines, and, therefore, are un
Inviting to the passerby. Thin must
have, if the farmers themselves or
then families are tu lhe least sensitive, u depressing effect. The trout)
le 1h tbat the matter has nol beeu
seriously considered, aud people do
not reali/o bow easy it would be to
make tbeir homes much more attractive than they ure. There is plenty
ot room In the country und abundant
sunlight, while trees and shrubs will
grow luxuriantly if tbey ure given a
chance. It Is not necessary to plant
flowers so that a great deal of work
is entailed, but something can be
done to improve appearances without
excessive labor. There are many
country homes iu our Dominion that
are a pleasure to see aud that are au
enjoyment and a credit to their
owners.
Tho expense involved iu getting
plants need scarcely be considered.
Thero are many beautiful wild trees,
shrubs and vines which cnn be obtained from the woods. Professor
T, Macoun, the Dominion Horticulturist at Ottawa, suggests that each
farmer should have an arbor day
once a yenr, and that tbe planting
be done about the home grounds. He
say that, "one can i nasjlno Arbor
Day becoming a day looked forward
to in every community, rVhon* eucb
family would vie with Its neighbor
in making the greatest improvement
in tho shortest time.
It Is surprising how quickly a
change is made. Oue year a tew
trees are planted; the next year
a vine or two, or perhaps a shrub, a
flower bed, a hedge, or a flower border. Abundant information is Available, aud a little planning o; this
time ol tlte year will make possible
to effect In a few years a change in
the character of the landscape. Rural homes might become witb the
minimum or attention uud labor .the
most beautiful in Hie land. When
taste is used in tbe planting <ind arranging, atid tiie trees and shrubs
grow, and the value of the property
increases rapidly. Thero Is no home
however humble, that needs to be
barren and unattractive because of
the absence of thrifty trees, shrubs

Hi- text was "T.n Church of thf

As last Sunday tht« question *■-»
"What ll ths True Gospetr" and a*
*,!■ [ound t.:nt truo Gospel m pe of
less   mattered   In   all   the   various
er I". and none oi them the pure and
unadulterated Gospel, so to-night we
ihuuM be prepared to tind that lhe
one true Churen ol Ohrlat Mr tii- past
eighteen centuries has been icaltered
h and there amongit various denomination-, and that do) one nf these
denominations is ihe tru-^ Church. Not
one ui them can claim to contain al!
the "wheat" and none ol th" "tares."
Nut ont* ol thi-m can claim to eon*
tain all ol the saints and no hypocrites. Th*; time was when the var
ku.- divisions ol the Christian Churoh
severally laid claim to being thn one
and only Church. But that time ha?
pa.-wd, so lar a_ the people are concerned, and haa passed so far as the
majority of the clergy are concerned
I am not here to charge Intentional
wrong-doing on the part ol any of the
divisions of the Christian Church,
said Pastor Russell. On the contrary
I shall assume that the tram era of
th" various creeds were s'neere, honest men; and that the original followers ol those creeds were sincere, and
that a few to-day may be equally sincere, I shall assume, however, thut
the majority U Christians, ministers
and laymen, realise that the sectarian
fences are largely composed of misconceptions of the Divine Word and
Plan and that the causes which originally led to Church divisions have
Col siderably disappeared. II we can
now recognize one true Gospel we tna\
all reunite, i'i harmony with our
Master's prayer, that "All may be one
as Thou, Father, and I arc one."
i remind you again of the simplicity
of this Gospel which recognizes the
broad outlines of the Divine Plan and
allows each individual to see as many
ot tne Hner lines ol the same as his
spiritual development will permit. On
that broad basis ot Christian union
the early Christians were one and reprobated any division. St. Paul re-
nuked those who .said, "I am of Paul;
1 am of Apollos, 1 am of Peter" (I.
Corinthians i, 12). As only Christ
died for us al!, He alone must be recognized as i ur Saviour. As He [a
the Head ol the Church and the only
Head, He un' must be recognized. As
all ye are brethren, so the class distinction as between clergy and laity
must be abroguted that we all may
be one Church witb one Lord, one
Faith ami on Baptism end one God
and Father over all (Kphesiaus iv,
6),
How the divided Church, with clashing creeds, appear a to the Almighty,
IL' tells us, calling it Babylon—which
signifies confusion, And wbo can deny
the appropriateness of the name? in
times past Catholics have applied this
name to ihe Protestant Beets, and
the Protestants in turn have applied
i; to tlie Churc liof Koine. Rut when
we come to examine the Scriptures on
the subject th y seem to include all—
the Church of Koine being represented as the mother Church and the vitriol.- Protestant Churches as her
daughters. The charge ol harlotry
WilJjh the Lord makes against mother
an I daughters much be acknowledged,
although with some this harlotry has
been more op i and pronounced than
with others.
Using the Jewish marriage ceremony
is the basis of the figure, all Christians, as members of the true Church,
are declared to be "espoused to one
husband, which ia Christ" (II. Cortn
tnian.i xi. 2). Under the Jewish custom the espousal uruugnt tne woman
under the same obligation of chastity
a- though the marriage had taken
place. Thus the Church, by her vow
to her Lord, Is obligated to the full,
although the marriage with the Heavenly Bridegroom will not take place
until Hts Second Advent and the
change nf the espoused from earthly
to ..eavenly conditions, for "flesh and
blood cannot inherit the Kingdom ol
God" (Revelation xix, 7; John _iv, 3;
I. Cor. xv., 50).
Spiritual harlotry is the condition
ln which the espoused nf the Lord
becomes affiliated with and joined to
the world- thus the Church of Rome
became affiliated with or united to
th, civil government of Rome; and
when the Roman Empire went to
pieces the Papal Church entered into
covenant relationship with various di*
visions of the civil government; and
► une of these paramours she still
has. while others have left her. France

Spain is moody; Austro-Hungary t
h -■ chief reliance at the present time.
She is well treated In America, but
ik . joined to the American Govern*
ment   She   is   well   entertained    and
(iv.n every  ilVrty  In Germany and
y many in Qreai Britain, hut these
countri.-s are noi hn  paramours.
The Greek Church is joined to the
Russian Government; the Church n|
Bnfland tn tha British Government,
Th Lutheran Church is married to
a+veral European Governments. Oth.
m at Mir Protectant Churches, hav
ing no opportunity for affiliation with
earthly governments, have become
united to worldly systems, worldly
organizations ol their own, in winch,
as a rule, wealth, mammon, sits at
the head of the table, "Like mother,
like daughters" is an old saying. Instead of charging tbis whole matter
upon others, let us each recognize
and take to heart our own share, lor
wrncii   we  are  responsible.
As the doctrinal errors which caused our divisions gradually developed
during a long period of darkness, so
our development along thi1 lines of
spiritual h irlotry were gradual. It is
not for us to quarrel with the facts,
which are undeniable, but lu sincerely repent ol the wrong condition and
renounce it. Coming back to th'* on*
faith, we should come back also to
\ one Lcrd. Bo doing He will graciously receive us and thenceforth His

FIRST WAR CORRESPONDENT.
But .than FroitMit Wai Late In
Reaching Battle Scenti.
The twentieth century read.; who
alt. l.'iur. thu tire idly aniu-ing him*
aeli with the pages of ancient history
never Stops to think of the trouble
ttiat the faithful chronicler of tbat
age had to take to get the facta set
forth in his book. Back in the days
*heu gentlemen wore sheet-iron
clothes and handled a bat.le-axe with
more facility than a pen, tlie history
writers had a hard time of it.
War was the principal occupation
uf the nobility, and they applied
themselves to it so faithlully that tbey
bad little time for anything else.
So much attention waa paid to the
business of killing each, other, and so
little to keeping count of the number
killed, that the news of a battle or
th; sacking of a town, or even of a
crown changing heads, traveled so
slowly that the historians seldom
beard it the same year. By the time
thev had prepared their vellum sheets
and mixed their paints to illuminate
the text, other battles had been
fought, other towns had been sacked
and a whole catalogue of new kings
had started in to reign. Despite these
difficulties the chroniclers labored on,
setting down in their best hand print
the happenings of court and tented
field as fast as they heard about them,
and whether their information was
correct or not it is all the present-day
world has to go by.
Jehan Froissart was the first war
correspondent known to history. He
reported the tattle of Grecy with
great success some thirty years after
it was fought. So lar as known he
was several years late in reaching tht
scene uf any of the battles about
which he has written, but he wouk.'
travel any distance to interview a survivor and take his deposition. He
heard of the mix-up between the English and the French at Poitiers aud
hurried to the field as fast as his nag
could carry him, but only the oldest
inhabitants could remember anything
about it by the time he arrived. He
wrote a very good account of it, how-
•■ver, and spelled correctly the names
nt all the slain. This feat never has
heen duplicated by a modern reporter,
-o far as the writer knows.
Froissart was a regular visitor at
the courts of Europe, where his
stories of carnage were regarded as
the best form of after-dinner entertainment. He would take hia trunk
an '. his manuscripts and make a lone
itay, paying for bis board with tale.-
ol the wars. Upon his departure it
was his custom to bestow a copy of
his book upon his ro*yul host and re*
ci'ive in turn a gold cup or a pair of
silver spurs, or some such token. Tbis
wus the only pay he ever received
F -r his writings. The spirit of self-
sacrifice whloh animated the chronicler should awake tbe emulation of the
reporters of to-day and still their loud
clamor for sordid cash. But probably
i*. won't. -lust what a reporter of this
age would say if his city editor offered
lum a birthday cup for his story may
only be (fjui.'ssed at.

and tbe land hns been taken up by
settlers. With the exception of the
Burns outfits, there are no more bis.
herds, and no more ranches, and no
more ranges and their accompanying
picture-que characters. They ail be-
loim to a bygone day.
There is one man in the west still
wl.n remains a cattle-man and rancher, He still count* his head* of steers
by the thousand, and he still has th■■
open ranpe. Thi- is Pat Burns. H°
has watched the ehnnge from the old
ranching days to the present, when
the farmer is supreme, with a keen
eye. And he ban withstood tbe
"evcrlastine, drop which wears awav
tbe stone." Pat has been fortunate.
but more than that, he ha? been far-
sighted. He saw the west coming,
away back in the "eighties. Then in
the 'nineties he saw the farmers
coining, and he prepared. Pat U
firmly entrenched, and it will b"
many long years before the growers
of wheat invade his domain.
Pst started life as a cattle trader
when he was eleven years old. That
was away back in his schooldays.
when he worked for his father, a
farmer of Kirkfield, Ont., and played
with William Mackenzie, the Canadian Northern president, and James
Ross, now of Montreal. Then he
moved west nnd homesteaded near
Brandon, where, by dint of careful
living and steady saving, he commenced to roll up a wad of bank bills.
When Ihe Canadian Pacific drove its
last spike he went further west and
located in Calpary, then nothing but
a cow-town nestling in the foothill.-
of the Rockies, as a rancher.
British Columbia commenced to
open up Mines were discovered in
the Kootenays. Settlers swarmed in.
Pat saw his opportunity. From his
herds on the prairies, which by this
time bad become vast, he commenced
to *hip beef into the mountains. This
was the commencement of a business
which to-day requires two huge packing plants, one at Calgary and the
other at Vancouver, to supply the
needs of seventy-six distributing
houses and retail stores throughout
British Columbia and Alberta. At
Ciilf-nry the packing plant i* a town
In itself. The plant at Vancouver is
on the water-front, and will shortly
have a wharf to which ocean-poin^
vessels wilt be able to tie up to toad
with beef on the hoof or dressed meat
for foreign lands, The two plant?
can knock on the head, clean, dress
up and get ready for market about
liv hundred steers a day!
Most of the ranchers have thrown
up their hand.- and said there was nu
future to cattle raising or cattle killing or anything connected with cattle. But such is not the case. Pat
Burns has made money, and pileg of
it, under tho old conditions. Anl,

Mm nt Mils Madge Bruce, ot Dunbar
Scotland, lu appearance Mis» Bruce
ts very refined, wtth a low pitched
voice and a witty, fluent manner of
speuking, but her address caused her
hearers more than one thrill of surprise. She carries hir views of th*
equality of the sexes to great lengths,
for to a mixed audier.ee she calmly
; made statements which would have
been calculated to raise a blush in
a meeting for men onlv. What Is
more. Miss Bruce talked In a matter-
of-fact way as though she was doing
nothing out of the ordinary.
| As a historian, Mi_B Bruce would
J be very interesting us she gtve^ some
I oi'd Interpretations uf recent episodes
in Kngland. She Eays that Lord
Gladstone received a peerage and th--
appuintment as representative of the
crown iu South Africa, because of
mistakes made in dealing with Lady
, Constance Lytton. That young ludy
1 wu*. arrested for militant tactics, but
as the men in the jail could not force
a real iive peeress to eat, they allowed her to go on the pretext that her
heart was weak. Later she wore the
disguise of a seamstress when arrested, and found that she did not
receive such lenient treatment. When
the facts became known, Mi.-s Bruce
claims thnt it was thought well to
dispense with Lord Gladstone's presence on the Government benches.
Miss Bruce possesses a record as a
militant suffragette herself. 8he is a
tighter for her sex against the tyrannies of man, and on one occasion,
she not up in a court room and berated her father, who is a magistrate,
because he addressed a young woman in the dock as "prisoner." To
the feminine mind of his daughter,
this looked like an infringement of
the rule of British justice that every
person is innocent until proved
guilty. Even in a land where yellow
journals are s«arce Miss Bruce's action brought herself and her father
very much into the public eye.
"A Very Ordinary Person."
Mr. Wilt Crooks, the British Labor
member for Woolwich, was recently
relating some of his experiences during his trip through Canada. "At
Toronto," he said, "I was met by
seven reporters. 'Well, gentlemen,
what do you require?' I asked. 'We
want a few words,' replied one of
them. 1 hesitated a moment, and
then blurted out, 'Well, gentlemen.
I can only say I think Cannda is the
greatest country in the world.' 'That
will do nicely.' said the reporter who
acted as spokesman for the party;
'we will fill in the rest.' I pot a paper

Lord Craws, Bibliophile.
Lord Crewe's serious illness is causing the gravest anxiety among his colleagues. Not only is he extremely
popular personally, but his absence
Irom the House ol Lords at the present juncture is a source of the utmost
inconvenience to the Liberal party.
Witli Lord Lansdowne's resolutions
for reform of thc House ol Lords once

of extreme delicacy and difficulty, and
one which must impose altogether extraordinary duties on ihe Government spokesmen, will have arisen.
And with the exception ol Lord Morlcy, who is himself far Irom robust,

benches in the Lords, now Lord

t Lord Crewe is emphatically one
on whom, up to the present time,
fortune has smiled. He is the lucky
possessor of a princely estate, a great
name, and a cultured mind. Also he
possesses an extremely well-stocked
and well-chosen library, his volumes
at Crewe Hall numbering nearly 35,-
000, and including some ol the choicest editions and rarest manuscripts
extant. In addition, he has filled some
of the highest offices in the state, and
has been elected aa a steward of the
Jockey Club—a distinction which he
prises as highly aa any ha has won.
Irish Wit.
I must admit that Irish wit la often
of the most mordant and even sardonic kind. Was there ever a more
sardonic stroke ol description than
that O'Connell gave of Peel's blood-
lessness? "His smile waa like the
silver plate on a coffin."
OI another and lower quality, but
good ol its kind, is the following
fishwife's sarcasm: A friend of mine
was waiting his turn to ba served in
a Ash shop while a little, weaicned
old gentleman priced every fish in
the shop. "How much is this—and
this—and this—and this?" etc., till
the exasperated shopwoman exclaimed: "AhI Go on out of that wid yet

*        EngllaS Women Mayors.
The gradual entr;- of women into

il. tact that there are three of them
acting as duly elected mayors of cities.

towns of Lancashire is Oldham and a
woman, Mrs. Lees, is its mayor. Miss
Philip Morgan is the mayor of Brecon, in Wales, while Dr. Garrett Anderson is serving her third term as
mayor ot Aldeburgh, on the east coast.
The change which has come over
fiublic feeling in England during the
ifetime ot Dr. Anderson is emphasised by the (act that in 1860, when
she applied to the College of Surgeons
and Physicians to be admitted to examinations the request was refused,
while now she is the president of the
East Anglican branch of the British
Medical Association—a branch of the
Identical society which had refused to

MAKE   THE    USE   OF   A   TONIC
MEDICINE A NECE8SITY
Dr. Willium*' Pink Pills nre on all
yenr round tonic blood-builder, nnd
nerve-restorer. But they nre especially valuable iu the spring when the
system is loaded with impurities ns
a result of the indoor life of the long
winter months. There is no otber season when the blood is really so much
in need of purifying und enriching,
and every dose ol these Pills helps lo
make new, rich, red blood. In the
spring one feels tired nnd weak—Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills give strength.
In the spring the appetite is often
poor—Dr. Williams' Pink Pills develop tho appetite, tone tho stomach
and aid weak digestion. It is in the
spring that poisons in the blood find
an outlet in disfiguring pimples, eruptions nnd boils—Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills speedily clear the skin because
they go to the root of the trouble in
the blood. In the spring anaemia, ihcu.
matism, neuralgia, and many other
troubles are most persistent because
of poor weak blood, and it is nt this
time, when all nature regains life,
that the blood most seriously needs
attention. To Improve und fortify the
blood is the speeial mission of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, nnd that is why
they ure the best spring medicine in
existence. II you feel tho need of n
medicine this spring give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a lair trial and you
will rejoice in new health, new
strength and new energy, and will be
especially fitted to stntid the torrid

Removal  ol  Famous  Bronte  Figure
That Inspired Many Fights.
The liimnu. (Inure of lho brown
dog hat heen taken Irom lhe fountain in fluttcr.cn, Kng. It created a
lively sensation while It was there
ond was the came nf a great many
ine-iunters between tho police ond Its
Iriend. nnd enemies. Thc brown
line wai a hronto and stood on a
grnnlto fountain In a prominent
place. Tho inscription on Ihe fountain sufficiently explains why the
brnnse beast was a source of war nnd
Is ns follows:
"fn memory of the brown terrier
dog done to denth In lho laborotori-s
of the University College In Febrn-
sry. 1903, after having endured vivisection extending oyer more than two
months and having been handed over
from one vivisector to another until
denth came tn Its release. Also in
memory of the 232 dogs vivisected at
the some place during the yenr 1902.
Men and women of England, how
long shall these things Inst?"
The friends of the young doctors
tried to tear down the figure, the
anti-vlvlscctionists fought for its
protection, and 'here was rioting
about the fountain. Finally the
Bntterseu Common Council had the
figure taken down and broken to
nieces and the inscription on the
fountain removed.
Most Effectual.
A well-known and popular bishop
often relates with great gusto the following little episode:
"Many years ago," he says, in the
earliest days of my ministry, when
In chnige of a small parish in a
northern county, I was much vexed
during the Sunday services at tbe
somnolent propensities of the major
portion of my small congregation.
"Rebukes and reproofs were of little
avail. At lust I determined on' a
new, and perhaps unique, course of
treatment. It was one Sunday afternoon in the depth of winter; and
after nil had, as usual, fallen asleep
soon ulter the commencement of my
discourse I c.refully lowered my
voice until presently it became a
mere whisper, and then ceased..
"Then, noiselessly, I quitted the
pulpit; and after disrobing stealthily
stole out, quietly closed the door ufter me, and left my unconscious
hearers alone in their glory.
"What they said when they pres.
ently awoke, nni found the service
concluded and .h^mselves in darkness, I know not. At any rate, my
drastic method of procedure proved
successful, for sleepers were rare afterwards."
A Popular Ambassador.
Americans like Mr. Bryce, Ihe
British Ambassador .. Washington,
who has come in for some criticism
on account of his attitude on the
question of reciprocity between the
States and Canada, because there is
no "side" about him. A visitor called on him one Sunday morning, and
Mr. Bryce met him in the hall and
begged him to "come this way. where
we can talk undisturbed." He led
the way to the library, and the first
thing he did was to take out a well-
worn tobacco pouch and blackened
briar pipe, which he proceeded to fill
and smoke. Mr. Bryce, although a
diplomat and bookworm, is fairly
"tough." He was the first Englishman to climb Mount Ararat, and has
been president of the Alpine Club.
It was once said of him that "he
walks down Whitehall at the pace of
a man who has left a roll of banknotes in tho smoking room ol hi*
hotel." His knowledge of books is
such that he was once described in
the House of Commons as "a walking
encyclopaedia."
A Famous Inn. '
The historic house of Calrndow Inn,
Lochlynehead, is no longer to be used
aa an inn, and general regret is lelt
throughout the district as the inhabitants were proud ol the ancient house
ol refreshment, which haa existed lor
several centuries.   The older part of
tho present building formed the inn
in 1145, and Prince Charlie took dinner in one ol the rooms, when he paid
a hurried visit to Ardkingtaa, ln the
hope that the laird would join his
standard.     An old  tree   still  called
Prince Charlie, stands in the grounds
ol Ardkinglas House. Here the Prince
waited, tradition says, while a messenger went to the houae, endeavoring to
obtain an audience ol the laird.

An Airboat.
The aeroplane is an airboat rather
than a flying machine. The only action of the bird that it imitates is the
bird's soaring, in nearly the same
sense in which a boat floats or a duck
swims. With the duck, however, there
is one difference. It shares the balloon
principle, because its body wi.l not
sink when it stands still, whereas the
aeroplane will fall unless it is constantly urged forward. The duck is
lighter than its bulk of water, as the
balloon is lighter than its own bulk
of air. To call an aeroplane a flying
machine ia therefore exactly the same
as to call a boat a swimming machine
(keeping in mind the swimming ol
the duck and neglecting that ol fishes
and ol human beings)

Reproductions Have Nottsd Fortune)
for Publishers.
An artist's lot Is not always a
happy one. Tho lata Holnuin Hunt
struggled lor years against adverse
eritieistn in Ids effort to simplify,
purify, and heujtify British art. At
c ne time Ills povrety was so great thnt
he mude up his mind to emigrat" to
Canada; bul, fortunately, Mills!.
cume to his brother artist's rescue,
and persuaded him to go down into
Surrey und continue his work.
It was here that he painted Ihe
background for his famous picture,
"The Light ol tho World." For three
months Holnuin Hunt painted all
night in the open air by the light of
the In i moon und a solitary candle,
nnd during Hint time he pluced upon
the canvas his immortal work. All
over the world "The Light of the
World" wus exhibited, ond cuused a
great sensation. Reproductions sold
in every town and country village.
Its soles tip to the present lime cannot fall fnr short of a million pounds.
The original picture was pluced in
a chapel nt Oxford, but iuter the
artist spent some weeks in repairing
the damage .hat hod been caused by
neglect. Then ho tainted a larger
copy, which wus hung in St. Patrick's Cuthednl.
"The Light of the Wod-li ia almost, but not quite, tie JdflMjHilur

—just the head. The eyes seem to lie
closed, but utter guzing at lhe painting for some time they appear to
open. It is, of course, merely on
artist's trick, but so wonderful does
it seem Hint some people regard it
as a miracle. This is the most popu-
lur of religious paintings, and well
over a million reproductions of it
have been sold.
The picture that beats all record,
is thai of the Eiffel Tower. In two
yours one firm ol photographers sold
over 700,000 copies, and at the present time there are between 3,000,000
and 4,000.000 scattered about the
world.
Compared with this, the soles cf
photographs of the Tower Bridge are
quite insignificant, although they
amount to nearly 1,000,000. Strange
to say, Londoners do not buy many
of these pictures. Most of them are
bought by visitors to the Metropolis,
who take them away as souvenirs.
The historical interest of the Tower
of Londici always appeals to those
who come to London for a holiday,
and hundreds of thousands of photographs of the Tower have been carried across the Atlantic to the Slates.
Thc sales of it greatly exceed those
of the Tower Bridge, and since photography became so popular it is eeti*
muted that about 1,200,000 pictures
of the Tower hove been produced.
At the small sum of a penny each
thi: would realize $25,000, but many
of these were sold for two und three
shillings, and even more.
The sales of photographs of the late
Queen Victoria were simply enormous, and must during her lifetime
have totalled 1,500,000. Thousands if
pounds worth hove been sold in the
Colonies and in India, and in one
cose a single Australian firm took
over $25,000 worth in one consignment. The photographs of Queen
Alexandra command a ready sale;
one firm mokes over $5,000 a year
from thia source alone.
May Be Result of Hor Diet.
For years English women never
ceased to be interested in the secret
of Queen Alexandra's beauty and even
to-day they cannot quite comprehend
how a woman well pust 60 — one who
has had her share of grief—can appear
more youthful than many a woman ot
40. It is said that her diet has much
to do with this. Queen Alexandra never touches red meat. She eats only
chicken, turkey, duck and game. The
vegetables she has served to her are
cabbage, spinach, peas and beans. She
does not eat pudding or pastry and
lor dessert has simply fruit cooked
or uncooked and nuts and raisins. She
is particularly fond ol nuts and haa
been known to make an entire luncheon of ulmonds and walnuts dipped in
salt. Site eats tonst rather than bread
and very little butter, but quantities
of cream.
Her Majesty drinks nothing but hot
milk, having given up tea, coffee, cocoa and wines years ago. On this
diet with a moderate amount of exercise Queen Alexandra keeps wonderfully well and preserves a girlish symmetry ol figure and wonderful softness of skin.
Botany Bay.
Sir .loseph Hanks was the man who
invented the once familiar phrase
"Botany Bay.' He was the botanist
attached to the expedition ol Captain
Cook, thn "Australian Columbus."
Landing at this buy, close tn the present eity ol Sydney, he lound such
an abundance ol strange plants and
flowers that he associated the word
"botany" with it for all time For a
long time llotiiny Ilny anil Australia
were synonymous in Kngland. Sydney
Iin, spread out to the historic liny,
and you cnn travel by tram cur to
"Botany." It was Bir Joseph Hunks
who made the kangaroo and other
Australian unimnls known to science.

covered with glazed tile. This is the
temple so much admired by Cum
byses, and it is supposed there is
some connection between the trndi

the Homeric legend of Zeus and the
other gods who feasted 12 doys eoch
year among "the blameless Ethiopian."
The Temple of Amon more nearly
than that of the Sun conforms to the
Egyptian style of architecture. The
approach to the sanctuary was
through four-columned halls. Toward the western end were three
shrines, the high altar of dork sandstone in the middle shrine being still
practically intuet. Ethiopian deities
were curved upon it, ana at the fool
were found offering tables of terra

What a Pencil Will De.
An English statistician was aaked
how many words could be written
with an English lead pencil, ami, being determined to answer it, he
bought a lead pencil and Scott's [van-
hoe und proceeded to copy the latter
word by word. He wrote 95,608 words
and then was obliged to stop, for the
pencil had become so short that he
could not use it. A German statistician who heard of this experiment was
dissatisfied with it because all the
lead in the pencil was not used on
the work, and therefore he bought a
pencil and started to copy a long German novel. When the pencil was so
short that he could not handle it with
iris fingers he attached a holder to it.
and it is said that he wrote with this
on? pencil 400,000 words. Possibly,
however, his pencil was longer or the
lead iu it was of a more durable quality.
Housing In Manchester.
The municipality cl Manchester.
England, has taken hold of the housing problem in an active way by
providinn; houses and furniture for
the poor. At the present time there
is under construction a group of
seventy-four one-room houses which
the corporation is building. Each
home haa a separate entrance, kitchenette, bathroom, water supply and
gas meter. The furniture will include a range, cupboard, coal buuker,
window-peat lockers, bed and bed*
ding, chairs, table mirror and hou-e-
clcaning outfit. The charge for the
"suite" will be 9d per night or 6s 3d
a week. It Is expected that the investment will pay at the rate of fcui
and one-half per cent.
Barmaids Scarce.
South Australia is suffering from a
barmaid famine. Two years ago bar*
maids were abolished in that State by
aft of Parliament. No more should
be legally engaged, but those already
employed could remain on condition
that they registered themselves. There
au now only 400 of them left, and the
competition for their services is such
that their wages have jumped from
25 shilling to £3 a week. The hotels
tha*. have had to employ barmen re*
port a considerable change for tbe
worse in their receipts.
Honors Mary of Scots.
Theodore Napier, who for fifty-Hunt
f'earg has taken a wreath from Edin-
turgh Jo the site of Mary Queen of
Scot's execution at FotheringHy, near
Peterborough, attended for the same
purpose recently in full Highland
costume. On this occasion, however,
hu wns refused ulmission to the cattle site by the occupier of the farm
nf which it forms part. Not to be al*
together outdone, Mr. Napier left the
wreath on an adjacent hedge.
Australians Easy.
A remarkable story is to hand of an
immense import trade in bogus curios whirl, has been flourishing in
Australia. According to the ytory told
by the customs ofllcials, hundreds of
violins, swords, china, boomerangs,
aboriginal weapons and idols made in
Germany and in Rirminghnm, have
been imported Into Auntrnlia and sold
at high pr*»*- to the unsuspecting
public.
"Why don't you try to intike yourself one of the intellectual celebrities
of your time?"
"What'-i the usap" answered tho
bright hut indolent young man; "the
firm whose patent food I have been
eating would come along and want all
the, credit."
Mr, Sopht— I see some fellah 1ms an
article in the paptth entitled "Have

Fligh?
Miss Pllgh—Well, really, between
