Guests Rush from
The  Carlton, one  of  London's
Fashionable Resorts in
London, Aug. 9— .lamieson I*ee Win-
ney, the American actor, is believed
to have perished tonight iu a tire
which destroyed a portion of the
Carlton hotel, where he was a guest.
He has not been seen since the fire,
and a roll call of the hotel staff
shows that none of its members are
After the dames had heen quenched
a charred body was found on the top
floor. It is believed to be that of the
American actor, Finney. The Carlton
is one of London's most fashionable
resorts, and about 2U0 p3rsons were
stopping at the hotel when the lire
broke out, and while all had narrow
escapes none except possibly Pinley
suffered any injury.
The fire burned for two and a half
houss, hut was confined mainly to
that end of the hotel adjoining His
Majesty's theatre and Hie fifth and
sixth floors were gutted. Part of the
roof also was destroyed. Only the
hardest work hy the firemen saved
the hotel and theatre. Lines of hose
were hauled up the stairways and
tons of water were poured into the
rooms. The damage from water is
greater than that by fire. Most of
the interior of the building was thoroughly soaked. The manager says
the hotel will resume business immediately.    The alarm  was  Bounded
at 7 o*clock while most of the guests
were dressing for dinner.
The bluzu started in the elevator
wire ashaft from the fusing of an electric wire and roared so threateningly that the people poured out into the streets leaving all their baggage. Men in their underclothes with
overcoats over them, women half
dressed, their hair hanging down
their backs, fled from the building.
The firemen arrived quickly and ran
up the ladders and rescued a number
of servants from the upper windows
who were shrieking to the excited
crowd below for help. They also cat-
rled out two invalid guests. The
general alarm sent out was that the
"Carlton hotel iB well alight and
lives are supposed to be in danger."
This brought a great force of apparatus from all the stations within a
radius of three miles. The upper
floor where most of the damage by
fire was done, was given over mostly
to servant's quarters. Comparatively few of the guests lost their baggage. The salvage corps removed
trunks and bags and piled them in
the streets. Thousands of persons
on foot and in motor cars filled the
adjoining streets and watched the
fire. The Haymarket, across the
street from the hotel were compelled
to cancel its performance on account
of the fire. His Majesty's theatre is
In the Storm Centre
Premier McBride has said that Ontario and Quebec will be the storm
centre in the coming election.
In considering the present complexion of the different provinces, we are
of the opinion that what Mr. McBride said is true. And if this is so,
the fight against reciptocity should
be fought there, and that the big
guns of the opposition should be centered upon these provinces.
There is no use in scattering the
Conservative forces along the skirmishing line for the sake of accomplishing a possible gain of one or
two constituencies, when if'"we make
a (determined attack at the storm
centres. Quebec and Ontario, it iB
more than probable that some twenty to thirty new seats can be Becured.
Let the Maritime provinces go as
they please, if they remain as they
are we shall be pleased. If we gain
several constituencies' so much the
Brltith Columbia will give the Conservative party two additional members.
Manitoba is sure to remain true to
In Saskatchewan and Alberta,
which, from present reports will remain Liberal, let the local Conservatives put up the b.Tt light possible,
and if we gain a seat or two we will
say well done. If these provinces belong to the "grits" let them have
them. We can get along without
them. The best Interests of the Dominion will not be sacrificed to the
selfishness of a few narrow minded
people who cannot, see beyond the
wire fence that surrounds their fields.
Make the fight in Ontario and Quebec, The farmers and industrial
workers of this province can see their
daagcr, and will tight to the hitter
end, for there is nothing for them in
reciprocity, for it will retard the development and progress of the province. A good stiff fight here will
surely add at least 12 seats to the
Conservative opposition. A gain of
12 seats will give Conservatives 60,
and Liberals 22 seats, with two independents.
In Quebec the conditions are very
similar, the manufacturing industries
as well as the farming industry are
opposed to reciprocity. They can see
an influx of United States commodities that means disaster, the shutting down of manufacturing plants,
that cannot compete with the large
plants^of the United States, for, taking the word of President Taft, as
true: "we sell more products to Canada than sho sells to us, and we
shall sell her even more, after the
treaty goos into effect." Will Quebec
Btand such n compact? With a strong
fight ln Quebec where so many interests are affected the Conservatives
should gain at least 12 seats.
The present status of the House of
Commons Is 133 Liberals, 85 Conservatives, and 5 Independents.
A gain of 12 seats In Ontario, with
a gain of 12 in Quebec, with two
more sure seats In British Columbia
would put the Liberal party on the
Opposition benches. ,
Opposition Sure
The Conservatives are confident of
sweeping the country. The party was
never ao optimistic and hopeful. It is
simply impossible for the Laurier
government to survive.
In the prairie provinces where there
has been so much talk that reciprocity would Bweep the country, the
Winnipeg Free Press, the leading grit
organ, admits that the best the Liberals can hope for is to hold their
The Conservatives are confident of
piling up the biggest majority of
seats in Ontario in its history; and
the outlook in Quebec could not be
better. Laurier Ib up against it, and
he knows it, too.
There waB not a Liberal member in
the last house that would bet on tbe
Liberals securing a single seat in this
province, British Columbia, and in
fact the Grits practically concede the
province to the Conservatives.
Everything points' to the slaughter
of cabinet ministers, and tbey will be
kept husy fighting for their lives.
The defeat of Wm. Templeman and
Prank Oliver, unless they retire, is
practically conceded, and Hon. Mr.
Fielding ia sure to have trouble to
get elected in Nova Scotia, while
Paterson, Graham, King aud Aylesworth don't hold a safe head in Ontario among them.
The Conservative members of parliament received the word of dissolution with great satisfaction. It was
just what they had started to force
the government to do some time before, to submit the reciprocity t|U0S-
tion to the people. It was evident
that the government broke up in a
panic, nnd on the Friday previous io
dissolution it wns not expected thnt
the house would Im dissolved on the
following day. They wanted to shut
off the Oliver enquiry nnd some otber
matters   and   that accounts' for   the

Executive Afraid of Secret
Fernie, Aug. 7—The executive board
of District 18 is in session here today, but no authentic report of the
vote cast last Friday has yet heen
handed out. This is because the official returns have not reached the
secretary's olllce. Enough is known,
however, to make it certain that the
proposition placed before tbe locals
has heen turned down hy a most decided majority.
It is expected that the vote will
stand about nine to one against accepting tbe findings of the Concilia
tion board as signed by Chairman
Gordon and Mr. Macleod.
The vote at Lethbridge was a surprise to the miners as well as the
public, it being supposed that the increase to contract miners recommended by the Gordon report to tbe
miners at that place would have the
effect of Inducing a large number to
vote for the agreement the Corbin
miners were working on Saturday,
but the effect of the return to work
there of a portion of the men seems
to have had the opposite effect to
what waB expected upon the other
mining camps.
The district board will be In session
tomorrow again upon regular business and it may be that the vote in
the district will reach here in time
to be canvassed, and the result made
public before the board adjourns,
It is almost certain that the vote
will be adverse to the proposition us
j presented, and in tbat case nebotia-
tions upon another basis will probably be opened.
The Corbin mines are still working
and the men who have gone to work
iu that camp are doing so under thc
terms as recommended by Chairman
Gordon, stripped of the Maclead provisos, aud it may be that this fact.
will be made the basis of negotiations for a general agreement for the
whole district.
Miners Vote to be
Fertile, Aug. 8—The executive board
of the district adjourned this evening without canvassing the votes of
the locals which responded to the
call for a ballot last Friday upon
the report of Chairman Gordon as
qualified by the Macleod riders.
Instead, it was decided to issue another circular, urging those locals
which refused to comply with the
first request to hold an election on
Thursday, and the board adjourned
to meet Priday to canvass all the
votes cast.
Prairie Harvest in
2 weeks
Winnipeg, Aug. 9—Lack of warmth
and real steady sunshine is responsible for many late reports to the
effect that it will be another two
weeks before harvesting is general
throughout the west. Cutting has
commenced with'a vengeance in many
districts but speculation still varies
as to tbe probable average yield even
where cutting is under way. In several districts it is claimed by crop
specialists that cutting will not commence for three weeks or possibly a
month but the concensus of opinion
is that the harvest will be in full
Bwing within a fortnight. Humors and
denials of damage to crops continue
to flood the city, but all are equally
lacking in authenticity. Another big
instalment of eastern harvesters are
expected within the next two days.
Fruit will be dumped
on Prairie
How the western railways of America view the prospects of increased
freight traffic in fruit, is very strikingly revealed in information which
reached the parliament buildings today. The Oregon and Washington
Railway and Navigation Co. has already cut rates hy over 25 per cent,
from points in the western states to
points in the Canadian northwest
This reduction applies to fruit alone
and affects from Walla Walla, Le
Grande and North Yakima to Lethbridge. The former rate of $1 per
hundred weight has been reduced to
75 cents and from thc same points
to Winnipeg where the former rate
was $1.12, It 1ms been reduced to 65
cents. From Hood River to lethbridge, where the former rate was
$1,124 it is now RO cents, and from
Hood River to Regina and Winnipeg
where the rate used to be $1.25 the
new schedule is 81) cents.

93 drowned by
Gibraltar, Aug. 9 — The French
steamer Emir foundered today five
miles east of Tarafla, Spain, in the
straits of Gibraltar. Ninety-three
persons were drowned.
Thc ship sailed from here at three
o'clock this morning for Moroccan
An hour later, in a dense fog, she
collided with the British steamer Sil-
verton, bound from Newport, England, for Tarnnto, Italy.
The crew of the latter rescued 27
of the Emir's crew and passengers.
The Silverton later put in here with
her starboard how stove iu and her
forpeak full of water.
The Emir floated only a few min
utes after the collision. Sixty-n:n
passengers and 24 of the crew went
down with the ship. Twelve of the
crew and 15 passengers were save'..
All the passengers were French. The
Emir was a vessel of 1291 tons an
was owned at Marseilles by the Don*
paigne de Navigation Mixte.
Growing    Interests
in Farming Pursuits
The Greatest Eagerness is being shown by
the People today in what may now
be termed Our largest Industry
Mr. Borden a busy Man
Mr. R. L. Borden Is kept busy
these days with his voluminous nnd
ever Increasing correspondence and
with requests made upon him by
many prominent men of both parties
who desire to see him personally.
The press of business may prevent
him from attending the monster rally in West Toi onto today. He Ib
very anxious to attend, and will attend, If possible, but the work of
organization at thc capital Is a
heavy one, and both Mr. Borden and
Mr. Geo. H. Perley, chief whip, have
their hands full. The former is specially anxious to clear the arrears of
his correspondence before taking tbe
stump. It is understood that Mr.
Borden will not only tour Ontario,
and tbe Maritime provinces, but will
address meetings in Montreal, Quebec
and the eastern townships.
The field of agriculture Ib broader
than almost any other subject of human intereat. It requires more
knowledge, deeper »tudy, and wider
experience than practically any other
subject within tne realm of human
investigation. It has until recent
years received the least attention
from scientific investigators. While
the practice of agriculture goes back
to the earliest beginnings of the race
and really antedates our historical
knowledge, still it is only within recent times that most of the scientific
facis regarding the subject bave been
discovered. Earnest work on the
part of scientists and others in all
parts of the world Is now in progress ln order to learn something of
the operations of natural law as they
are revealed In farm practice, and
yet, notwithstanding all that has
been and is being dene, there are
still  many problems unsolved.
It Is not surprising, therefore that
the practical farmer finds himself fre-
queiitly face to face with problems
which are beyond his ability to solve.
Almost every day during the growing
season he may be confronti-d by
questions tbat be cannot answer. It
Is because of tbe fundamental importance of agriculture as a source of
natural wealth and thc difficulties involved In carrying out its suc<:c.inful
practice that tbe governments nf all
provinces, states and nations in the
more highly civilized communities are
today maintaining at public expense
experimental farms, laboratories and
highly-trained technical experts for
the specific object of helping ihe farmer to solve his problems and if possible to assist bim in answering thc
questions that occur to him In his
dally work.
The most encouraging feature of
Canadian agriculture is the use that
the best farmers are making of the
various agencies established and
maintained for their heiMlt, but the
bulletins thnt are published and distributed free by the Department-H of
Agriculture nre not read as they
should he. Only a small percentage
of the farmer^ of Canada ask for
them. The Instruction given at the
colleges of agriculture does not meet
with the sympathetic bearing that
one would expect.  There is not that
keenness on the part of the people
for information that would indicate
progressiveness and enthusiasm in
the prosecution of their work. In
Brief, the facilities for acquiring
knowledge are not used aB they
might be by the majority of the people who need the information.
Tbe reason seems to be that there
are so many things that are not understood and the amount of knowledge is so vast that the average man
does not feel capable of attacking
the problem in order to get just exactly that kind of information he
requires. A good plan for the man
who would make a beginning is to
decide to specialize a little in some
branch of animal or field husbandry,
and then secure and read bulletins
dealing with that specialty. Take,
for example, potato growing. Nearly
every farmer grows a few potatoes
each year, but very few make a specialty of the business, and the oonse*
quence Is the average production is
not only low, but the quality is poor
making the crop, Instead of one of
the most remunerative, perhaps one
of the least productive. There is a
great deal of excellent literature
available on the subject of potato
growing, and any mau of ordinary
Intelligence could easily, if he desired
to do so, become more or less of a
specialist in this subject, and add
materially to his annual revenue
therefrom. This is merely an example, but serves to lllusi rate how
to go about acquiring agricultural
There is a great deal of truth in
the statement that most farmers
have too much land. If they would
put half their farms down to grass
or dispose of them nud give their
whole time and attention to the
careful cultivation of what tbey had
loft, In many InfltancoH, probably In
the majority of instances,, the profits from the year's labor would be
materially Increased. Tbc handling
of a large farm requires not only
expert knowledge, business management and executive ability of n high'
order, but more capital than the ab-
erage man has available. Home
farms are run at a profit on   small
capitalization, otber farms with larg
er available capital yield compara
tively meagre returns. But it does
not seem to he a matter of acreag-
or capital that controls or governs
the profits resulting from a givci.
farm. The investigations that have
been made in this direction are un
(millions and conclusive in fixing tlu
secret of success in almost every in
stance on the kind of managemen
given to the farm property. A farn.
of fifty acres is often more profit
able than one of a hundred acres.
Sometimes a well cultivated s:nal
farm yields double the profit of a
large acreage extensively equipped.
Ab land Increases in value and be
comes less fertile it is important
that the cultivation should be In
tenslfied, that the resources of tin?
soil should be conserved, and tbut
the wast*' and leakages should bl
curtailed, The labor problem ais.
has an Important bearing on the
methods of farm practice employed.
The yields per acre of various fain
crops can be enormously Increased bj
better fertilization and better tiling*
methods. The llrst. cost is apjiroxt
mntcly the same for a poor crop n
for a good one, while ilie advantages
in results are altogether with tin-
latter. Intensive culture |n really tin
crying need of Canadian agriculture
today, especially in the long-settled
sections of older provinces.
There ought to  be some better me
tbod  of distributing  labor through
out the country than exists today.
At the present time jn larger cities
there are a surfeit, of laborers seek
Ing employment. Au advertisement
In tbo local papers for unskilled help
brings at once forth or tifI.y nppli
cants, There are largo numbers o'
men seeking employment, and witling
apparently tn do any kind of wort
for the small ost rate of pay. Th"
cost of living, Including rents, seems
to be on the increase. What these
people are going to do during the
coming winter in order to feed their
families nnd to keep themselves supplied with sliolter and clothing Is
difficult to ascertain.   At thc   same

time, as everyone knows, throughout
the rural districts and in the .smaller
towns and villages necessary work is
at a standstill because there are not
the men available to do it. One reason why so many people desire to
live In the large ceotres of population is because they feel that they
must bave some form of amusement
in the evenings. Their type of mind
is different from that of the people
who prefer to live in tbe country.
Tbe rural people need more amusements; but city people have too
many. City people are shallow and
lack    that    depth uud stability      of
haracter   that  country   people   possess,
But it seems that the country   and
ity might get closer together in this
matter of handling thc labor population in some way that would be a
benefit to both. The problem iB not
an easy one. The first step toward
relieving the congestion in tlie cities
itnd supplying the need or the country, is for the governments to estab-
,Ish distributing bureaus through
which   those   in   need   of labor   can
nuke their requirements known und
tbose who are hunting employment
can secure the opportunities desired.
Such a bureau, for example,, in tbe
•ity of Toronto would be of material
advantage to the whole province, and
would help large numbers of men nnd
women who are now on tbe verge of
starvation, to find profitable and
suitable employment of a permanent
and satisfactory character, as well
as comfortable and self-respecting
iurroundingB, instead of tin- un.lesir-
ihle conditions under which at present they must  live.   The inflow   of
emigration is daily increasing the
lerlousness of tbe problem, as large
numbers of the newcomers need assistance and advice to get themselves
properly located. Otherwise they
itay in the cities and become a bur-
len to themselves and to the community in which they dwell. Many of
'lie British immigrants who have
•ome to Cannda during the past
twelve months have failed to tmd em-
loyment in the large centres, and
have gone home in disgust. Thei'- is
abundance of work for all who come
'o onr shores, lint some government
tgency should be organized which
vill  help those who desire  work    to
ocure it without expense to them
selves or without excessive cost to
those who need the labor.
and that their object was to secure
the easy passage of borne rule. Walter Hume Legg, ex-chief secretary for
Ireland, challenged Mr. Asquith to
reveal his conversations with King
George, but Winston Churchill, the
home secretary who wound up the
debate, declined to consider the request. The delay was characterized
hy numerous interruptions, but there
was no disorder.
Mr. Asquith taday told the house
that it was at the King's expressed
desire tbat he bad disclosed the communications which hud passed between them, so that there should be
no mystery and no misunderstanding
of a perfectly simple and correct
transaction. He stated that his intention to aak for guarantees in certain eventualities bad been communicated to King Edward first ou April
14, 1910. Mr. Asquith concluded by
maintaining that thc only method of
dealing with the situation was
through the use of royal prerogative.
"I hold my office," he added, "not
only ry the favor of the Crown, but
on behalf of the people, and 1 should
be guilty indeed, of treason, if at the
supreme moment of a great struggle
I were to betray their trust."

followers,  "Let  your   light  so   shine
before   men  that  they   may   see  your j
good  works aud  glorify  your   Father i
which- is in heaven" (Matthew v, 16). j
Tu live righteously, soberly and god-1
ly in this present world to the extent I
of one's ability in what everyone
ahould do—uu less. To live a life of
sacrifice—to lay down our lives fur the
brethren, for the truth, in the service
of the Lord, is another mailer, which
i'ustiee does not require and which the \
tible nowhere enjoins upon mankind.
It is pointed out as a privilege to j
those who desire it, and glory, honor i
mid immortality on the spirit plane i- !
the reward attached to this inviU- j
tion or High Calling. It is the selection ol this special class nf cunsccrat- !
ed ones that is the particular order uf j
the Divine program at the present |
Having clearly defined what we do ,
not mean to teach, let me now asaert
that, nevertheless, every sensible man j
and woman, saintly or not, must feel |
a deep  interest  iu   the   welfare  uml I
moral progress of the human family, |
uf which he forms it part.    All therefore,   should   rejoice   in   every   move- ]
ment and endeavor working to even
temporary enlightenment, blessing and
uplift  amongst  mankind.   The  many |
benevolent institutions uf the civilized
World attest this general thought.   My j
only conflict with these humanitarian
efforts is that   they do not approach
the subject of human betterment from
what 1 consider to be the right standpoint.   With nearly all of these efforts,
more or  less   distinctly   stated,   are
those God-dish ono ring and love-opposing   Intimations   of   an   alternative  of
tomient, either purgatorial or eternal.
This   is   the   great   blight   which   had .
worked   and   is  working  incalculable
harm—driving  intelligent minds into
opposition to tiie true Uod and the Bi*
ble,   Which   is   the   revelation   of   His
Wisdom, Justice, Love and  Power.
The Bible freely tells us that many '
features uf the Divine plan are uow
hidden in mystery, hut the last book \
of the Bible, which prophetically pic
lures the future, assures us tnat In
God's due time "Tlie mystery shall
be finished, which He hath declared
to His servants, the prophets" (Reve<
lalion x,7). The same book assures
US ttiat in God'l due tune, when the
mystery is cleared, "All nations shall
come and worship before Thee, for
Thy righteous acts havo been made
manifest" (Revelation xv, 4». We are
now living in tiie time when the "mystery" is ending and the righteous
dealings of God, from the Scriptural
■tandpotnt, may be clearly seen.
But these revelations are not meant
tor the world in generol now, hut
merely for "the elect," tiie "sanctified
in Christ Jesus." "To you it is given
to know the mysteries"; to outsider*
these thing.-, are spoken In parables
and dark sayings (Matthew xni, 11,
13). But not until the elect shall be
glorified nnd the Messianic Kingdom
established will tiie 'mystery" remade fully known to the world and
every knee how and every tongue con-
Divine Plan of the Ages.

ut general, should awaken to the fact
that  a  world  that  has   lost  its  God
must   of   necessity   be   au   unhappy I

floated over the Town Hal! declaring
that Estevan was "the city with a

cause it certainly has no past. Estevan has not the distinction of possessing an eld -st inh.ibitunt. Five

Escaped   From   Bastille.
The Karl of Verulam has kept his
fifty.ninth birthday, and, as head oi
i Grimston family, descends, though
not in a direct line, from the Sylvester
de Grymstone who was one of the
Conqueror's standard bearers. The
family archives contain many stories
of this adventurous family, one of the
most famous being that o* the escape
of Sir Kdward Grimston, Controller
of Calais in Kdward VI.'ft day, from
the   Bastille.
Sir Kdward had languished in thai
terrible prison for two years before
his opportunity came. Then a ttie
was smuggled into him, and with in
finite labor he cut through the bars
ol his cell, and changing clothes with
his servant, not only got clear away.
but lived till he was ninety-two.
To his grandson, Harbottle Grim
s'-i, Sheriff of Kssei in the tlrst
Charles' time, a baronetcy was given
in 1612, and with the death of the
third baronet the Grlmstons gave way
to the Lucky ns, the first of whom was
made Viscount Grimston, and thereupon adopted the lauii'y name. The
Barony of Dunboyne was conferred
upon him, and later on came thut of
Forrester of Corstorphin.
Thus is comes ahout that the Earl
of Verulam of to-day is one of the
only th*ee members of the Upper
House who ure Knj'lisli, Irish, and
Scottish peers. Among Lord Verulam'*1

A Day Off In B.C. as Described by s
Hospital Worker.
Au hospital in the bush BOUttdl very
lonely; but only those who have lived alone; the coast of Vancouver Island cau realize how wonderfully
grand il is. The hospital of which I
have charge is situated many milei
north of Vancouver. I hud had heavy
work Ior many month-., and was ju*t
getting n bit slack when I awoke o' e
morning iu August to find the sun
streaming Into my room It wus one
of those sparkling clear mornings
when everything stands « ut with that
remarkable clearness peculiar t--
Western Canada.
ThUk how much I should like to
take a "day off," ami repair to one ol
the lakes to llsh, | made known m>
wish ut breakfast time, and we ur-
railged that tbe doctor's wile and my
self should go off, taking with us a
male patient convalescing, uftor am
putalion   ol   leg,   and  a mad  scramble
Alter helping with the morning ward
work, and packing up it hasty lunch, 1
was Just nXing up my lishing tackle
wheu th.- whistle of the first train ol
lugs came down to us from not very
UU   up  in  the   woodl.
Tims meant hurry, for the men can-
Pol bee time waiting for holiday-
makers So off we trotted Juit in (initio Bcrumbla into lhe engine cabin,
ami away eight miles through the
bush nil we reached the beautiful lake
which was to be OUC destination.
Having got down again from the
engine, we made our way to the luke
edge, there t> lind an old boat; into
this we scrambled, and pulled out a
little way, then threw out our lines.
We luut plenty ol bites, and landed
seine half-dozen line trout; but tbe
S.UU shone too brightly for tlle fish,
and  they   soon  became  buy.
While they were enjoying a "siesta,"
we rowed about two miles across the
lake, and landed on the very smallest
ol islands, which we christened "The
Uie of Delight." Here we made a
lire and prepared a lunch, giving our
patient his in the boat, as be, poor
fellow, could  md  land.
After our repast we again settled
down to fish, ami a very exciting two
hours followed, landing trout as fast
as we could for two hours. In fact
we were so engrossed that we had
forgotten the train foreman's instruc
tions to be at the wuter tank ut 4.:J"
p.m. Now it was after 6 p.m. The
last train of logs had gone down, and
our position was indeed a serious one.
After much consultation between
ourselves we finally agreed that there
was at any rule uo use remaining
in the boat, that we had better get
to shore, und that 1 should walk'the
two miles to the nearest camp and
ask the manager to kindly send us
home on a "loose engine."
Suddenly through the stillness came
a strange sound. Oh, joy; it wus the
whistle of a train! We could scarcely
believe our ears, but it surely cam"
nearer and nearer, and ut last Imve
into sight. We waved frantically, and
pulled with all our might to shore,
but the men saw us and called out
to us to hurry. And we obeyed their
instructions to the letter, but the
task of getting our patient out of the
bout und up through the bush to the
truin in a hurry was an extremely dif
flcult one, and, looking back on it, 1
hardly know how we accomplished it
However, wc eventually reached the
line, and managed to squeeze oui
selves into the small space available,
fur it wus no train and carriage we
had stopped, but an engine only, und
we were soon speeding on our way
home. We learned that ..ie engine
was going down to bring back a water
tank, otherwise we should have 'fared
badly—how badly I do not like to
think. As it was, we got buck safely
with our fine load of fish.
And a very nice homecoming it
wus! Putients wuving to us, as we
rounded the corner, evidently on the
look-out, and even military hon^r*),
for the gramophone was playing ou
the veranda.

ago, one of the very, very few survival*- of the real i Id pioneer days of
Ontario- Hugh Ma in, the father of
Sir Donald, of the great team of
Canadian railroad builders, Mackenzie
mo Mann, in his 94th year. Here was
a mnn who, if he had stayed in the
laud of his birth, would have reared
u family unknown, in all human
probability, outside ol the Scotch parish where he himself was born. Huv-
ing married a tine young woman
named Helen Macdonald iu 1043, he
sailed away to Canada shortly afterward, and iu this land of possibilities
a sou of his became one uf the country's  biggest   notabilities.
Hugh Mann aud his wife settled
on the 4th concession of Ksquesing
Township, one mile eust of Acton Vii-

of  ten  were  born,

Ontario's Prison Figures.
According tn the annual return for
1910 for the prisons and ref jrmatories
of Ontario, issued by the Provincial
Secretary, a decrease of C5 in the
number of prisoners sent to Kinyaton
is shown, while there was an incense
ol 61 in the number sentenced to
the previous yeur. The commitments
for murder lust yeur were 41, as Corn
pared with 21 in 1909; manslaughter
10, as compared with 11 the previous
The total number of persons committed to jails or lock-ups of the province last year was 13,687, uu increase
of 152 over 1909. Of this total number.

D, D. Maun was born in l-*o3. Like
the boys in "Tbe Hoosier Schoolmaster." he worked in the summer aud
went to school iu the winter. His old
schoolmaster iu Acton recalls that
be was a very dull scholar. Hugh
Maun was the smallest member of bis
family, but of his sous "Don" was
the biggest. He was big and husky.
Presently he struck out and worked

D. 1). Mann was about to take his
small earnings and go to college. But
he didn't. He weut to Crewsou's Corners, a little way from Acton, and
rented a farm. He farmed for nearly
three years, but he couldn't make
good. He sold out his belongings aud
weut West. It is said he left the
town in debt, but it is on record that
with his first earnings in the West
he came back, called lus creditors together, and paid off every dollar he
owed, after which he was giveu a
supper, cheers, and other things at
the Dominion Hotel in Acton.
Mr. Hugh Mann followed his sou to
Manitoba. Right at the outset, as he
was crossing the river at Cartwright,
his horse and wagon fell into the
stream and were lost. And while his
son climbed up steadily, from a small
contractor, teaming ties for the Canadian Pacific Railway to a railroad
builder on his own account, the lather, now widowed, failed to prosper.
ine Manns, it seemed, were simply
uot cut out for funning.
Sir Donald, since tbe dawn of his
greut prosperity, took the best of cure
of hi-', father. About 21 years ago he
purchased fifty acres of excellent land
adjoining the G.T.R, property ut Acton, and installed the old gentleman
there in comfort. Tho latter could
not be happy except ou a farm. So
competent help was employed and
Mr. Hugh Mann spent his declining
years in ease. One boast he made
was that he would go into Acton every
duy of his life, and go he did, rain,
storm, or shine, driving or being
driven when he became feeble.
Sir Donald Mann has two brothers
still living, and three sisters. The
brothers are Mr. Allan Mann, a Saskatchewan farmer, and Mr. Alexander
Mann, the Winnipeg contractor,
whose firm, Mann and Mackenzie,
are sometimes confused with the
greater one of Mackenzie and Maun.
Another brother, the late Hugh Mann,
jr., gave promise of being something
of a celebrity. He invented a track
luying machine which did wonderful
work, but he wus killed one day by
his invention.
Acton feels that it Is the most noted
birthplace   of   prominent   railroaders
I in the country, for it not only claims
! D. D. Mann, but J. J. Hill, although
I the  latter  wus  born  on a farm  six
] miles   from   the   village.    In   recent
j years both Mackenzie and Mann have
been  frequent visitors at Acton,  for

Bill Muckeuz.e uud Dan Mann, the
builders uf the Canadian Northern's
vust system of transportation.
Tho most illustrious example which
Canadian Malory holds of such friend*
ship is thut which lias existed for su
many yenrs between Sir Willium Van
Home and Ins faithful hcnclimun iu
many a ha*.tie, Sir Thomas Shuugh-
neisy, says C. Llntern Sibley in Can*
adian Century.
Sir Willium Van Home's figure
looms lurge upon the euuvas of his
. time, uud how splendidly would it
leuve its impress upon the records of
I the Dominion if some day Sir Thomas
. were to enter the realms of literature
as Bos well to the Johnson of Sir William. There would be ull the roitiuuce
! of the lifting of Cuuada from a colony
'. tu a nation to tell: all the fairy-like
| atory of the gigantic tasks and gigau-
I tic achievement.- of the small group of
, men who huve accomplished the won-
i der thut is the Canadian Pacific: all
, the delightfully human stories which
I cluster round the name of Sir Wil*
i ham, ull ths fart- uud foibles of the
! singularly complex character of tlu*
| one-time farm boy. Sir William,
j Sir Thomas is probably too much
! wrapped up in the cures of his high
1 oflice even to think of undertaking
| such u work. But it would, indeed, be
j a splendid thing if somebody were to
1 do it before the records and the memories perish; Bomebody with au inti-
* mate knowledge, a lively humor, and
; an incisive grasp of essentials, such
as  Sir  Thomas   has.
\    There are many picturesque acces-
, sories to lighten the record of such a
man as Sir William.   I like that picture of him that you hear from the old
! construction bosses, of how, when he
was out  in- the  wilderness  with  his
unities of  workmen from  the Orient
and the Occident, carrying to a suc-
| cessful   consummation   thrusunds   of
I miles of what were regarded as engi-
■ neeriug   impossibilities—how,   in   the
\ starlit nights, in the vastness of the
i Itockies or the solitary wastes of the
fiiains, there would flow nut upon the
istcning air some wonderful'strain of
j music—the solace of a Chopin nocturne or the deeper melody of a Beethoven tone poem—telling Indian and
Orient and Furopeun ulike thut the
Big Chief Van Home hud been pleased with the result of the day's struggle with primeval chaos. That music
{ was of the Big Chief's own making;
it came from his beloved violin.
And, contrasting with this, there is
the other side of his nature—the explosive wrath, the cataclysm of purest Anglo-Saxon, the fiery will of the
man expressing itself in fiery terms,
, and the sudden flash of humor that
came like mellow sunshine following
upon the thunderstorm.   It took a big
fund of humor, of optimism, of sheer
1 brute strength,  and of magnetic,  In-
1 domitable  will, to carry on u buttle
such  as  he  won ugainst forces  and
, discouragements sn vast as attended
the   construction  of   the   C.P.R.    To
huve built the C.P.R. was a greater
achievement than the building of any
1 other railway hud ever been; a great-
; er achievement than any future rail-
. way on this continent can be.   For he
built through  an   unknown, untried
land; he had  to be prophet as well
as pioneer; seer as well as general.
I    The stories of the triumph, the humor,  and  the   tragedy  of  this  great
I task  may  yet  be gathered  from the
| memory of living men, and intimates
I of Sir William, like the friend he calls
' Tom Shnughnessy, have heard scores
upon scores of such stories from 8ir
William's own lips.
Such   stories,   for  instance,   as  he
tells, ot how he was once lost amid
! the interminable mountains of British
. Columbia.   How he wandered all day
swallowed up in a vast landscape that
stretched away in an endless sea of
snow and glacier-clad peaks, and how,
towards   evening, down   among   the
trees on a mountain side, he espied
' smoke.   How he crawled on his hands
and   knees  to  tbe  camp,  fearing  it
, might be hostile Indians, uud how to
this big man, with his giant hunger,
, there floated on the breeze the glorious  smell  of  frying  beef-steak,  betokening  the   flesh puts  of  the   white
mnn—us, indeed, it wus—of his own
: surveyors.
The secret of Van Home's success
< is thut thc man was always bigger
thun his tusk. You cun see how much
bigger   he   is   thun   a   mere   railroad
i builder if you should ever visit him
| tn   his  home—and   especially    if   he
1 should ever show you over his picture
! galleries und art und curio collections.
He cun not only discuss art with the
artist—he is an artist himself.
One  of   the   foremost  of  Canadian
{ artists lins told me that it wus from
1 such obiect lessons of Sir  William's
, that he learned to nignt a ruilroad as
; a railroad should be painted.
Sir Willium  is u student—a deep,
not a superficial student — of every
school of urt, so much so that he can
| usually tell by a glance ut a picture
< by either a modern or un old master
j the name of the man who painted it.
And   sometimes  after   u   hard   day's
| work, he has gone home and sat up
all   uight   and   painted  a   picture  ol
! some scene that has vividly impress-
I ed him during the day.   As for sleep
! —well, that is only a habit, he says.
In   literature,   Sir   William's   taste
runs to the works of men who leave
their impress on their time.   Triflera,
lie has no us or/or, either in literature
or   in   life.    And   parasites  on   the

More About Sir Wilfrid.
The   London   journal, Modern Society,  once  more  favors  its   readers
with  a   lone   distance   information
about Canada's   Premier.    Undoubt-
edly one of the most cnteresting visi
tors to  our  shores just  now  is Sir
Wilfrid   Luurier,   who   has   been   de- ]
scribed  as  "The  Simple Life   Prime
Minister."    Although he possesses a j
knighthood, he is at heart as demo-
cratio     as     Lloyd-George     himself. \
"Titles and budges," he said on one |
occasion, "do not mnke the man, and j
I myself would   prefer   to be   called
simple    Wiifr'd   Laurier."     Indeed,
considering his high public position, j
Canada's    PrenYer    is    almost    too j
modest,  but   hi3   sterling   character
and wonderful powers of oratory huve I
won him the affection of all classes.
It  is interesting   to   note   that,   although  Sir   Wilfrid   is   the   virtual
ruler of millions of English-speaking !
men and women, he himself was not j
able to speak a word of English until j
he was nrgliteen.    Up to tbut age he
could only  talk in  French,  and  hi« j
first lessons in English were received
from an old Scotch farmer, to whose
house young Laurier used to go for
family worship.    Sir Wilfrid  is very
advanced in all his ideas, und some
time ugo he publicly expressed him* j
self as   ba:ng in   favor of   woman'*
suffrage.    "Well," said a lady mem- j
her of the audience, "If you give us j
the vote, you will find that we shall j
vote for you and the Liberal party." ,
"Oh, no doubt," replied Sir Wilfrid
with   a   knowing   smile.    "You   ard '
just like the men.    You want some-
thing first,  and  when  you  have got
it, you  will  show  your gratitude—if |
you don't forget it.

Are Your Children Properly Fed?
LET us talk ahout the right feeding of children.
Of course, you want your children to grow
up slrong and healthy; you want to equip them
for the battle of life with rugged constitutions and
good red blood. Now, the first step is to see that
they are properly fed. And these words "properly
fed" mean much in the diet of children. For it isn't
quantity that counts, hut quality.
There is no better food under Heaven for
growing children than plenty of first class bread
ind butter. They thrive on it, grow strong and fat
and rugged. Their systems crave it because it is a
complete, well-balanced food.
But the bresd must be goal—the vrry best, snd tire belt U made

Taft'sjot Air
In hiB inetSBa^e tu Congress on January 26, President Taft said:
"Ought we not then, to arrange a
commercial agreement with Canada,
if we can, hy which we shall have
direct access to her great supply of
natural products without an obstructing or prohibitory tariff?. . . .
Tlie Dominion has prospered. It hay
an active, aggressive and intelligent
people. They are coming to the parting of the ways Should we
not now, therefore, before their policy has become too crystallized and
lixed for change, meet them in a spirit of real concession, facilitate commerce between the two countries, and
thus greatly increase the natural re
sources available to our-people? . . .
May 8th, 1911. To the (American)
National Grange:
"1 believe it is contrary to nature
it is. flying in tbe face of providence
to put an artificial wall like that between this country and Canada, and
not get the benefit that will inure
to people of the same traditions,
the same language and practically
with the same character of labor. If
we take down that wall we will benefit by it, FOR WH SHALL SELL
President Taft in New York, April
"The bond uniting the Dominion
with the mother country is light
and almost imperceptible. . . .1 bave
said that this was a critical time ir
the solution of the question of reel
proeity, it is exceedingly probable
that no such opportunity will ever
again come to the United States.
The forces which are at work in England and in Cannda to separate her
by a Chinese wall from the United
States, and mako her part of an Imperial commercial hnnd reaching from
Kngland round the world to England again by a system of preferential tariffs, will derive an Impetus
from the rejection nf this treaty; nud
if we would have reciprocity with all
the advantages thnt I have described
nnd that. I earnestly believe will follow Its adoption, we must take it
now. or give it  up forever."

Ba 1 Report on Crops in States
A tremendous decline in the con
dltion of crops in the United States,
general throughout the country and
traceable to diotight and intense
heat, occurred during the Inst month
as indicated hy official figure:* and
estimates made today in the month
ly crop reports to the department of
agriculture. The report today Is the
worst as to general crop conditions
that the department bus issued for
any single month since 1001. Tin
area most seriously affected extends
from New York and Pennsylvania
westward to the rocky mountains,
embracing all ol tho great, corn,
wheat, and liny producing states In
ihe country. In the sou thorn states,
with tbe exception of Virginia nud
North Carolina, ample rains served
to maintain gooorally favorable xon
dltioiiH throughout the past month,
These conditions, thus far, continue
to he favorable.

Advantages of British
The Duke and Duchess of Connaught
and Princess Victoria Patricia, the
Landgrave of Hesse, Princess Louise
Duchess of Argyll, and thc Duke of
Argyll attended a lecture given at the
Imperial Institute by Miss Agnes
Dean Cameron, who, to use her own
jibrase, has heen "sent to the dear
mother land as a direct representative of the government of Canada
for the purpose of giving a series of
talks in order thnt the mother land
and the Dominion may become better
known to each other." Lord Strathcona, high commissioner for Canada,
took tbe chair, and thc large audience included the Baroness Deicbmann
the Baroness de Knoop, Sir William
Vincent, the Hon. Mrs. Joyce, the
Hon. Maude Pauncelote, the Hon. J.
Turner (agent-general of British
Columbia), professor Dunstan, Major
Lugard, Mr. Ward Book and Miss
Mary Williams.
Miss Cameron, who is a native of
British Columblat and who has been
further north than any other English
woman, said she had been asked
whether Canada was loyal to England, and her reply was: "No, Canada is loyal to tbe British Empire.
Let England look to It tbat Hhe is
also loyal to the Empire." (Hear,
hear), in this country she has beard
the phrase "disintegration of the
Empire;" hut in the Dominion anybody who used in seriously would he
considered disloyal. (Hear, hear).
Those who felt alarmed at what they
called Americanization of Canada did
not realize the pride of the Canadian
in belonging to the greatest of Empires. Besides Canadians would have
nothing to gain by joining the Re
public, which Canada was destined
to pass in wealth and population us
she did in extent of territory.
(Cheers). MIsh Cameron went on to
describe tJhc advantages of Canada,
and especially of British Columbia,
for emigrants.
Lord Strathcona thanked tlie royal
visitors for thoy- attendance. Of the
five years spent in the Dominion by
the Duke and Duchess of Argyll Can
udians bad a happy recollection, ami
when It wns announced that thc
Duke gnd Duchess of Connaught were
l.o represent the King in Canada a
great wave of enthusiasm ran
through that country. His Royal
Highness was no stranger to tlie Do
million. As Prince Arthur he was
there In 1809 and 1870, when he gain
od I'he affectionate respect of thi
people. Afterward, when he passei!
lh rough the country with the Duel.
esH, he was regarded as an old friend
and now the people of the Dominion
ookod farward with gratitude and
pleasure to the prospect of seeing hi"
royal highness as governor-general
with the Duchess as his gracious as

Has   Changed   Canada   Into   An   Exporting Country
Inasmuch us economic history
shows ti protective tariff to have been
the must successful policy iu agricultural countries much older thun Cannda, fur instance, Russia, France,
Austria, Hungary, Belgium, Italy,
Germany, Holland und United States,
that sort of fiscal system should ulso
be In-st for Canada. The Cunadiun
farmer, especially in the West, bus
had the opportunity of seeing just
exactly how Protection helped him
in tlie llax industry, lu the light, of
events since 1IH)7, when a protective
duty of 10 cents per bushel was placed
on flax, it is interesting tu record
tho prophetic words of a prominent
Canadian speaking at Winnipeg in
llHMi. He suid: "Our llux is shut out
uf the American market on account
of a duly of 25 cents per bushel.
Why do uot our Cunadiun farmers
ask our Governmenl to place a duty
mi llux grown iu Canada to give them
the home market which they are just,
ly entitled toP There is from one uud
a half to twu million bushels of flaxseed consumed in Canada annually
by our Canadian linseed oil crushers,
und why should u million bushels or
more of foreign seed be used instead
of buying "Crown in Canada" flaxseed, und grown right here in the
Wesl, tlie best thut cnn bo produced-'
"I wish to point out to the intelligent farmers of the West that the
American farmers lind flax mure profitable to grow than wheat nnd 1 hope
thut, when revision uf tbe tariff takes
plnce, there will be u duty placed on
llax seed fur the benefit of the farmer
uud tbut till fluxsed used in Cuuuda
will be "Crowu in Oanada."
These utterances buve been, since,
most fully vindicated, Up to 1IM17
flaxseed entered Canada free of duty
and as shown by the statistical record of exports find imports for Mldfi
und Illllll, Cuuuda was an importing
In 1905, imports were 17G.Sft7 hinh-
els and exports were onlv 314 bushels,
In IIHHI imports were 711,1:18. bushels for home consumption, and exports were only 2.824 btishols,
After the duty of 10 cents per bushel wus placed against United States
uud oilier foreign countries, Canada
became an exporting country. In
104)8, Imports were 495,164 bushels,
mid exports were I0,0<)7 bushel*. In
moo. Imports Rtendlly decroased lo
288,4(18 bushels, uud exports iiicreun-

Dear Elss—I hare been Tlsltlng orer
Id Washington for a week, ond It ta
surprising how tunny new faeea oue
tees there now, particularly at tha
Congressional Woman's club, wbere
tba wives and duuglitera of membera
of congress congregate. Tou see, the
laat election made ninny changes In
tbe personuel of congress, aud the new
people who arrived lu March are aa
jet practically unknown quantities.
Every one la wondering Just wbere tba
wives nud daughters of the newcomere
Will fit luto the social sebeme. There
Is tbe state of Ohio. Until recently tbe
mires of Ibe sonutors from Ohio bare
occupied a conspicuous place ln tbe society of tbe capital, Mrs. Hanua aud
airs. Foraker were leaders whose eras
will not soon he forgotten. Beuutor
Burton bas uo wife, aud tbe wife of
tbe late Senator Dick cared little for
■oclot leadership. Every one Is wondering bow It wlll be with Mrs. Atles
l'omerene, the wife of Senator Dick's
■uccessor. Both Mr. and Mra, l'omerene are particularly charming persons, and, altbougb one can often say
this of senators' wives, It too frequently happens that the senators themselves are lacking In su voir falre. Botb
the Pomerenes nre equipped to shine
tn society If tbey have auy taste for It,
■nd Wasblngtonliins are hoping that
they bave, for every one Is pleased
irltb thla simple, unpretentious couple,
Who In culture and cleverness are so
Inucb above lbe average Money does
not count In Washington as It does In
Mew fork or In many other cities, and
ao the fact that the Pomerenes are not
conspicuously wealthy does not ln ths
■eaat Interfere with their social position.
1 Mrs. Pomerene was Miss Mary
BocklUB, daughter of a Canton (O.I
manufacturer. He also la an Obloan by
birth, tbe early part of his life having
been spent on a farm ln Holmes county, wbere his father was a country
doctor. He was graduated from
Princeton wltb honors lu 1884 snd
after graduating In the Cincinnati
Law school ln 1886 settled down to
practice bis profession ln Canton. Mr.
■nd Mrs. Pomerene were married in
1802, and the marriage baa been a
very happy one Mra. Pomerene la
ber buajiand'a comrade, bis chief
friend and adviser, and probably the
fact that tbey bave no children haa
enabled her to give more time and
thought to his comfort. Clubs snd
■Imllar attractions bave no charm for
bim. He la essentially a domeatlc
man, altbougb far frum a mollycoddle.
Wben tbe Pomereuea appear In society tbey appear together, and Washington Is learning this fact. It la
quite obvious that Mrs. Pomerene admires her hushnud Immensely. When
•be heard of bis election to the senate
■bs remarked to a friend:
r -I always told Alice that any ons
wbo led such sn upright life and possessed sucb a clear conscience aa hs
would surely reap a rich reward. Per-
bsps this Is part of tbe reward."
Mrs. Pomerene Is a pretty woman In
tb* early forties. Her busband Is said
to be forty-seven. Neither of tbem
bss any fads In Canton, where they
bars resided since their marriage,
tbey are eiceedlugly popular. Tbey
bave a pretty borne In the neighborhood of the late President McKlnley'.
■nd live as do muuy otber prosperous,
reined families of tbat attractive
Ohio town, lt Is said that the people
•f Canton bave great faltb In the future of Mr. Pomerene aud believe that
b* wlll go fur politically. Since the
passing of the McKlnleys the town ls
so longer the Mecca of famous persons, Tbe people of Csnton believe
tbst In Mr. Pomerens they have s
presidential possibility.
Ths new senator from Ghlo was discovered by the late Mayor Tom L.
Johnson of Cleveland wbeu be waa

Mr. Pomereue presided. Mr. Jobhsoi

Father of the English Dukes.
Such is the distinction of which
that fine old English gentleman, the
Duke of Grafton, who is in his ninetieth year, can boast. After a distinguished military career—he fought
through tlie Crimean War and was severely wounded, a bullet entering his
jaw and passing out through his neck
—the duke became equerry to Queen
Victoria. In his capacity as a magistrate, the duke was once corrected by
a poacher who appeared before him.
The man had been caught with a hundred rabbits in his possession, and in
his severest tones the duke said,
"You are fined five guineas and sixteen shillings costs." "You'll pardon
me," said the culprit, "but I'm not.
You can't make me pay more than
five pounds. You aee, I know what
I'm talking about. I've been up before." And he paid the five pounds
with the air of a man who bad scored
a point, for he was proved to be in
the right.
