Tremendous   Undertaking
Coincident with the purchase of
"Ads" Limited und lhe Uroadhridge
Co milium til Photo Company by the
Advertisers' Corporation ol British
Coluinhin, Limited, Announcement
waa made, that arrangements hud
been completed to send Mr. Broad-
bridge, a stall of assistants, and an
expert moving pic tin- operator from
end to end of the Province with a
view to making the lirst cumplete
p ctorial record of British Columjbia'H
growth, Industrial progress and opportunities ever ae tempted, Although
the organizers of the Advertisers'
Corporation of British Columbia,
Limited, have been working out thc
details of this undertaking for several weeks, it wus impossible for them
to make any definite announcement
of their plans until thoy hnd completed the purchase of every share of
stock in "Ads" Limited from the
original stockholders.
Their purchaso of "Ads" Limited
and of thc Broadbridge Commercial
Company, together with their taking
over thc business of ttu- Yukon aud
Southeastern Alaska Publicity Bureau, the organisation of a thoroughly equiped art department and tlie
enlargement of the working staff
gives to the new company the dis-
t. action of being the largest advertising organization in the new West,
and their proposition to prepare a
comprehenHive pictorial story of Canada's riches* province has met with
the Immediate endorsement of Government officials and of inlluential
men whose interests lie in the industrial and commercial upbuilding of
the Province and in the development
of its vast natural resources. In
spite of the unprecented industrial
growth of British Columbia, and the
rapid development of its wealth, no
systematic effort ever before has
been made to prepare a pictorial record for the benefit of immigrants
and outside investors. The publicity organization of the Eastern agricultural provinces have made their
strongest appeal to investors and to
immigramts through the wide dtstri-i
hutlon of well made photographs re-,
vealing conditions as they actually
arc. The success of this method of
campaigning was evidenced hy the
enormous influx of people into Alberta immediately followin the publication of the tlrst few hundred photographs of Alberta's wheat fields
and granary, published in the news
phperu of England and  America.
Following the plan of the Eastern
Canadian provinces, the Government
bureaus of New Zealand and of the
various provinces of Australia imported photographers from England
and expended n vast sum of money
and a yoar of time in photographing
all points of Interest. AgAin the result of this method was immediate,
as is demonstrated by recent statistics compiled by emigration officials.
California adopted the same plan,
and at tho present time the State of
Oregon is spending $101800 for photographs of the Eastern aud Interior
section of the States.
Mr. Richard Urondbridge, who will
bave charge of the tour arranged by
the Advertisers' Corporation ofUrlt-
ish Columbia, Limited, is probably
the best known commercial photographer in British Columbia. During
the years that he has worked in Vancouver he has become known not
only as a photographer, but as a
man whose abilities enable him to
take the right kind of a picture from
the right point of view. And tbe
tour of Mr. Broadbridge has been so
carefully mapped out that no city in
the Province and no district will be
overlooked, and the time schedule
has been so arranged that Mr.
Broadbridge will reach each section
of British Columbia at a time when
Its most Important industries are in
the best shape to he photographed.
The story which Mr. Broadbridge'B
camera    wlll toll    will he the most
WEEKLY TRADK    REPORTS.
Clear weather for the past week
has helped retail distribution, but
warmer weather is needed to stimulate trading in spring and summer
merchandise.
Tbe demand for   agricultural   tm-
complete that has ever been told
about British Columbia. In spite of
all the literature that has been pub-
lisued about British Columbia, no
adequate description of the extent
and resources of the province has
been placed in the bands of the pub*
Lie. Few persons ever have stopped
to consider that the StateB of Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana
uud Kentucky could be set down iu
British Columbia and still room
enough for part of Minnesota, a third
ofOhio, more than a third of Iowa
and a good-sized slice of Missouri,
And when thc vast area of British
Columbia is considered in the light
of comparison with the areas of the
greatest agricultural States in Am
merica, it it easy to understand why
full justice never has been done the
Province from a photographic point,
of view, and is also easy to appreciate the magnitude of the undertaking which the Advertisers' Corpora-
t on ot British Columbia Limited,
has shouldered.
During the Broadbridge tour of the
Province, moving pictures will be
made at all points of interest, and
will portray nut only the industrial
life of British Columbia, but also the
more picturesque side of the provincial life, which cannot fail to make
a special appeal to tourists. Arrangements have been made with
moving picture theatres throughout
Eastern Canada, America, an'd England for the presentation of these
motion [.ictuses, and the films will
be furnished to the theatres as rapidly as they are developed, so that
long before Mr. Broadbridge returns
from his tour the public of the English-speaking world will have seen
Dritish Columbia at Its best.
In addition to the photographs}
which Mr. Broadbridge will take vita,
his camera and with his moving picture machines, a large number of pan-;
oramfc views will be made, and ar-j
raugements have been completed for j
the publication of many of these pictures in the leading magazines of
Canada, the United States and England.
The new company which has taken
over "Ads" Limited and the Broadbridge Commercial Photo Company
has a personal which bespeaks of the
company's ability to carry on the
work of exploiting British Columbia
nnd Its resources In a way that will
reflect credit to the Province. Mr.
! hillock C. Dundy, managing director
and treasurer of the company, was
formerly head of the Yukon and
Southeastern Alaska Publicity Bureau, and lt one of the best known
community advertising mon west of
the Mississippi. Mr. David Swing
Kicker, editorial director and secretary, was for a number of years editor of the "Chicago Sunday Tribune." He loft the "Tribune" to become chief "ad writer" for the Herbert Kaufman and Handy Company,
and recently was the manager of
"Ads" Limited until that company
was absorbed hy the present organization. Mr. Percy G. Bundy, director of the art department of the
new company, was the leading illustrator for all the advertising matter
issued by the Southern Pacific Railroad during the strenuous campaign
of a few years ago, and recently
came from Winnipeg, where his work
had attracted widespread attention
among those who keep an eye open
to community publicity. Mr. Rlch-j
ard Broadbridge, photographic director and vice-president of the company, is well known throughout the
Province as a commercial photographer wbo can be relied upon to
combine the artistic with the practi-j
cal, and his work has attracted attention from publications through-
out the Dominion. I
Mr. Frank J. McDougal Is president
of the company, and will serve as '
its solicitor.—NewB Advertiser. j

Ib to be seen at the Auditorium The
atre on Thursday, April 27th, when
local playgoers may form tbeir a
opinion as to the merits of the
young person.
No musical comedy iu years hns
created the amount of discussion us
this work of Paul M. Potter: It has
been condemned and lauded. It*ran
for a season at the Circle Theatre,
New York, and so great was its success that the playhouse lifted a great
loss and showed a profit at the end
of the season.
Washington, Baltimore. Boston;
Pittsburg and Chicago have all en-
Joyed this enchanting picture of the
nlghr life in Paris on tlie occasion
of the annual sete of tbe art students, the Quat-z-arts Bull. Mr.
Potter knows his Paris as he does
the other great cities of the world,
aud travelers who have .-sen seen
"The Queen of the Moulin Rouge"
have lived again the night of that
great fete.
The story is a simple love tale of
the wanderings of the young King of
Orcnnia, Sgcha, and tiif, bride <o he,
the Princess Marotx, who disguises
her Identity by masquerading as
Rose Pompette, "The Queen of the
Moulin Rouge".
The little Princess is an art student at the academy Savottrette.
Sacha and two of his officers arr ve
at the academy to see the princess.
There iB the usual lover's quarrel
about a kiss, and the young King
leaves ln a huff. When upbrn ded
by ber attendents for her nnolnosB,
Matotz declares that she will attend
the Quat-z-arts hall as Ro?e Pompette, the Queen of tho Moulin Rouge
who has heen absent for a couple of
years.
The third scene of the first act
shows the interior of the famous
Cafe Quat-s-Arts, whlrh takes Its
name from the celebrated fete. Here
one lias a picture of Parisian life,
which is absolutely true to life. It
is a cosmopolitan gathering; thc
the beautiful women, the superb costumes, the gay badinage, the spirited music, lively songs, mad antics
and whirlwind dancing, oil proclaim
that it Is the festival night of the
year.
A dozen models are carried in ou
ftontes by the students, exhibited and
tben thrown into the waters of the
Seine, It is a picture of joyouB
bound ng, careless, happy, unthinking youth on pleasure bent, which
warms the cockles of the heart and
b Aa age stand aside for the night.

this is the commercial uud business
centre of n vast Inland Empire, all
portions of this, immense miniug,
lumbering and agricultural region Is
directly tributary to the City of
Crunbrouk. He would also say,
that all railways now under construction, or to be constructed In the
near future, must of necessity, either
have its Initial point, or its terminal at Cranhrook.- There is no wi-;-
dim or ability lu recrimination or
regrets, the situation with its ^vantages and disadvantages is before us,
ami the question-, is "how con we
advance the interests of tbe entire
district, as well uh benefit our own
City of Cranbrook," and in pushing
this project of development to city
and district, we must look into 'the
future, for our interests are, and will
always be, the best interests of thc
entire district; we must then stand
shoulder to shoulder, showing our
faith in the natural resources of the
district, nnd the advantages of our
beautiful city, by working tirelessly
for Its advancement. By showing
this faith on all occasions, and hy
helping ourselves, we shall sooner or
later get others to see these things
iu their proper light, assured that
under no circumstances can future
development, commercial or agricultural, lumbering, or miniug, avoid
making this City the metropolis of
this vast Inland Empire.

MARKET    BULLETINS
	
"The provincial government is tak
ing steps for a most comprehensive
system of market reporting for tbe
benefit of the fruit industry this sea-
sou. Tbe past season Mr. Metcalfe,
the markets commissioner, was alone
in the field, nnd his reports to Victoria were distributed throughout
thf! fruit districts by mail. This
season, the government has promised
to have agencies iu the principle distributing markets of tbe prairie provinces, and from the telegraphic ru
ports sent to Victoria, bulletins will
be wired out to the affiliated associations. This wlll cut at least
tive days from the time required to
got market information to originating points and will, in fact, keep
Lhe association posted to within 24
hours of the actual market. In addition, a man will be maintained in
the competitive valleys south of the
line t/> advise us of market conditions there, for with reciprocity
looming up it is Important for us to
become acquainted with the American conditions, methods ami organisation.'

we bad passed through tne postern
and found ourselves iu uuotiier court.
Opposite us was the onl dotijou. Its
appearance was more tnau impressive, i
It wus hlgb and square, und it was on
account of Its shape ilmt It was
known us tbe square tower. And us
this tower occupies ttie most ttupor-
tant corner ot the fort Ideation it was
also known ns the corner tower,
"That lower youder In the opposite
corner," went on bid Ith, "ts the lower
of Churles the Bold, so culled because
he wus tbe duke who furnished the
plnns when U become necessary to
transform tbe defenses of the chateau
bo as to mnke tbem resist the attacks
of tbe artillery. Old Hob has made
this tower his study. 1 huve uever
been able to refuse old Bob anything
he wanted. Old Bob," she added, with
a charming smile, "is my uncle, 'that
ls the name he taught me to call him
by wben I was a little thing. Ue went
to Paris on the 5 o'clock train, but ne
will be buck tomorrow. Ah, here is au
oubliette:"
And she showed us iu tbe center part
of tbe second court a small shaft
which she called ro ma uth. a lly au oubliette uud above which a eucalyptus
tree, with its white blossoms aud us
leafless limbs, leaned like a womuu
over a fountain.
Since we bad entered tbe second
court we understood better—tbe topographical piau of the Fort ot Hercules.
Tbe custle bad beeu built lu 1140 by
the seigneurs ot Mortoiu. ln order
lo isolate it completely trom the laud
tbey bad made an Island ot tbe peninsula by cutting away tbe narrow lata-
mus which connected it with tbe mainland. Tbe Isthmus iu tbe course of
tbe centuries bad again resumed us
old form, tbe drawbridge bad been
thrown dowu, and tbe trenches had
filled up. The walls of tbe Chateau
of Hercules followed tbe outline of
tbe peninsula and were built upon tbe
rocks, und the latter in some places
extended over tbe waters in sucb a
manner tbat u little ship might have
taken shelter beneath tbem, fearing no
enemy while thus protected. 'J his
building wus murvelously well adapted
for defense.
The fort was entered by way of tbe
nortb gate, which guurded the two
towers, A and A',,connected by u pus-
sugeway. These towers, which had
Buffered greatly during the last sieges
of the Genoese, hud been repaired to
some slight extent some time afterward und hud shortly before we cume
to I tochers Itouges been mude hnbllable
by Airs. Itntice, who used them us servants' quarters. The front or the tower A served as the keeper's lodge. A
little dour opened lu the side of the tower upon the piissugeway and enabled
any one looking out to observe till those
who cume or went. The entrance to
the castle was closed only by a little
gate which any one might open at
will. This entrance was the only one
by which It wan possible to get into
tbe chateau, As 1 have snld, in pass*

Its dark bulk against the blue waters

figure, looking thousands of years old.
I have spoken also of tbe ruins of tbe
cbnpel. The undent commons (shown
on the map by Wi. near the pnrnpet
between B nnd B', had been transformed Into tbe stables and the kitchens.
One could only penetrate Into tbe
second Inclosure through the postern
(indicated by ID. which Mrs. Arthur
Ranee called "the tower of tbe gardener" and which was actually only a
pavilion, formerly defended by the
tower B" and by another lower situated nt C and which had entirely disappeared at the time of the erectiou
of the new castle (shown at C OO. A

Of the chateau of the seventeenth
century, known as the new custle,
they bad only repaired two bedchambers ou the tlrst lloor and a little sitting room for guests. It was to these
that Itouletabllie and myself were assigned. The Imr/aes were lodged In
the square tower Two rooms tbe
windows of which opened u|h.h the
balcony were reserved lu this square
tower for "Old Bob," who slept there
M Stangerson wus in "la Louve," In
the rear of the Itulice suit.
Mme. Edith herself showed us to our
rooms, which recalled to us nothing of
tbat magnificent post, Tbey had been
swept and garntstied with a care that
was almost touching As I have already said, tbe t»o sleeping rooms
were separated by u little parlor.
After dressing for dinner 1 called
Rouletabllle to ask hlin If he were

Into bis room and dis.overed with
surprise that be bad already gone out
1 went to tbe window of his room,
which opened, like my own, upon the
empty court.
But what was tbat dark shadow?

tbat 1 was wrong? He was only too
easily to be recognised.
Oh, yes; it was be! It was "the

erect, bis arms folded, his face turned
toward tbe tower, a diabolical apparition on tbe threshold of the night,
wbli h slowly crept up behind him und
enveloped him in Its shades.
When he had vanisbed 1 lowered my
eyes aud beheld two figures In tbe
Court of Charles the Bold. Tbey were
near the little door of the square tower.    One of these  forms- the taller—
. wus supporting the other and speaking In tones of entreaty. The smaller
attempted   to   break   away,  as  If  to
; throw Itself Into the sea.    I beard the
: voice of .Mme. Harzae say:
i     "Be careful.     If   is a  gage  of  de-
i fiance. Vou shall uot leave me this
evening."   Itoulelilbllle's voice answer-
I ed:  "He  must   laud  upon   tbe   bank.
1 Let me hurry to the bank." Matbllde
spoke again.    Her voice was terrible
I to hear.    "1 forbid you tu touch that
I man,"
1 descended to the court, where I
found Uoidetabillc alone.    1 spoke to
| him. but be did not answer.    I went
i on Into tbe outer court, and 1 saw
Darzuc coming toward tne lu greutest
. excitement.   He called out:

"And she-my wife-do you know

Thomas Lauriault had Kidney Disease and his Wife Bright's Disease
and Dodd's Kidney Pills Made
Them Both Well.
Lac Cayamont, Que., (Special).—
There is a world interest in the simple story of Madame Thomas Lauri-
nult of this place. In her own words
it is as follows:
"Dodd's Kidney Pills cured my
husband of Kidney Disease and myself of Bright's Disease. We recommend Dodd's Kidney Pills to all who
suffer from Kidney or Bright's Disease."
This is a splendid example of the
grand Work Dodd's Kidney Pills are
doing among the plain people of Canada. Kidney disease is the commonest of all ailments among those who
have to work hard, becuuse the kid
neys are the first part of the body to
feel the wear and tear of heavy work.
When the kidneys go wrong the
blood goes wrong, and the whole body
goes wrong. Rheumatism, Dropsy,
Diabetes and Bright's Disease are the
usual results. Dodd's Kidney Pills
cure these by simply curing the kidneys.
The block fox is very rare. Its pelt
is marketed nt London, where the

were offered; tins year the nujnber at
the midwinter sale was only 04. The

A Pastoral Love
Affair
Combin.tioo oi the Natural and
the Artificial.
By ARTHUR BEMERTON
Copyright by American Pre Asao-
»Uin. 1911.
Bessie and 1 fell In lore naturally— In fait, too naturally. 1 hiiTe often thought how pleasant It must be
for the animals and birds to mate
without having to look Into each
otber'a record. A tiger may not only
kill a uitin. but eat him and mate with
• moat reH|K,-table ttgreaa without any
question, beiug asked. Two birds
may meet ou tbe branch of a tree and
without the slightest knowledge ot
each other become mates. Hut mau
•ud woman must not ouly know all
■ bout each ottier. but be of the same
grade and each bave a clean record, or
there comes a lot of trouble.
Aud the most singular thing about
It all Is that either of them will mur
der any animal, except their own kind,
•nd eat tbe carcass.
1, being an artist, wben the buds
were beginning to open went Into
the country to catch that first delicate
■bade of pale green which appears on
the trees at that seasot. I was sitting
•o my trl|ud in a wood working In tfw
colon, when I heard tbe bark of a dog.
■nd a moment Inter a little terrier
■tood growling nt me. A girl, budding
like the trees, not Into leaves, but luto
womanhood, hurried up, calling in a
•oft voice:
"Frisk! Come away, Frisk! What
do you mean?"
I paid no attention to the dog, and
there waa uo need for tbe girl to call
bim off, for he bad no Idea of attacking me, but he gave me an excuse for
addressing the girl.
And yet I question if any excuse
was required. People who meet In
crowds are constrained by conventionalities. We two, meeting In a wood,
nvltb not a sound about ua—when the
dog bad ceased barklng-except an occasional twitter of birds engaged in
Best building, felt constrained In another way. We were Impelled to be
companionable. I began by telling ber
Bot to mind tbe dog, tbat he wouldn't
disturb me, and ahe sidled around
where she could catch a view of my
■ketch. One thing led to another uutll
.we felt quite well acquainted. I had
chosen a delightful spot to transfer to
canvas, lt was on a declivity. An
opening In the trees below revealed a
|«tch of landscape, while nt my feet
gurgled a stream, at this season well
■applied with water from snows re-
cently melted at higher altitudes. Tbe
■Ir waa balmy aud laden with per
fumes.
One bas but to mention this outline
picture to Indicate the result. Given
■n opening spring In a wood, buds, wild
Bowers, twittering birds, a vltta, a
brook, a dog and lastly a young mau
Ind a young woman, both lo the flrst
freshness of youth, what follows?
Why, exactly what tbe poet says-the
young man's (and tbc young woman's,
fancy turns to thoughts of love.
The result of this meeting was an
•ther meeting nnd another and another.
I didn't count them; I wns too preoccupied to do so. I painted so long on
toy picture that before I finished It the
flellcate shade 1 hnd come to the country for had grown Into a dark green
Ind the full grown leaves had blotted
nut the vista which gave the work
more than half Its beauty. But while
thla beauty was disappearing the bud
of love was opening.
So much for the natural features of
thla story. Now come the artificial—
vtf, a girl's confession to her father
tbat ahe had met ber fate, but bad not
met with nny knowledge of that fate'a
antecedents; then a command from
Ihe father, tears from the girl and a
triangular condition between the father, the girl und the artist such aa
bus taken place ever since the first
primeval girl planned to give her father tbe slip and climb a tree with the
Brat primeval youth, tbe tree being too
high for the old gentleman to follow.
Bessie's father was really as reasonable aa we considered hlin unreason-
able. He merely wished to know who
I waa. Since 1 had lived In Soutb
America from the time I waa two until
twenty-two years of age I must solid
there for my credentials, Involving a
delay of a month or moro. What cruel.
ty to force a pair of lovers to wait all
that time In a state of suspense!
"Sweetheart," I snld to her one day,
"■appose the reply ahould come that 1
im an escaped defaulter, Jailbird, murderer."
"I would not believe the story."
"But your father would," 1 added
■eaten tloualy.
One day, after having painted alone
In tbe wood, ou leaving lt I saw something half covered with shriveled
branches and dead leaves. I examined It and found tbe dead body of ■
man. Horrified lest I might be Implicated In a murder, I threw back
what I bud removed and waa about
lo hurry away wben I aaw two men
coming for me. Within Ave minutes
I wu on my way to the nearest puttee atatlon.
My antecedents were now nrt eo
much needed tu enable me to poisess
my love aa to preserve my neck. The
statu, hnd changed a second time.
The caw was not now one of a father,
■ girl and nn unknown mnn. but a
father, a girl and nu unknown man accused nf murder I sent at once •
bote to Bessie Informing her of my
trouble en ouravtiig her tn keep ap ■
goal heart nnd assuring her of my Innocence. Hecelvlng no reply. I concluded tbat her father would not permit her to send a reply.
Brooding In my cell, I could not but
revert to the good old primeval times
I bave cited before when a suitor
might kill aa many of bis fellow be
lng. as he pleased without being ob
Jetted to on thut ecore for a sou-Ill-
law. I had killed uo oue. 1 wus mere
ly auepected of killing a man. And
If Bessie's father did uut kill men he
killed the uext grade of animal below
men-or other men did tbe work fur
bim, which la Just aa criminal -and
devoured tbe Been. It teemed lo -Ut
thai the only logical Iwlng* ue tha
beasts and the birds. They kill and
eat each otber without Inquiring
whether or no they are eating the
same species, while man—well, thla ls
what man doea.
Ue kills and eats every animal be
low himself. To kill even oue of bis
own kind be considers tbe greatest ot
crimes unless be kills tbem in battle,
where the more men he kills the bigger man he Is, which Is exactly what
made the chiefs among his savage ancestors.
1 was so Impressed with this reasoning that I asked my Jailer for writing
materials and wrote It down. or. rather,
elaborated tbe bare skeleton I bad
thought out. When tt wus finished I
asked to bave it delivered to Bessie's
father.
Iu due time a reply came as follows:
I hav. always desired my daughter to
marry a mul, distinguished for aoine-
thlng. Artists and poet. ar. usually distinguished tor their Ideality. You. being
one of the kind, share that distinction.
Vou mny further hiy claim to being th.
moat Impracticable numskull that, to
my knowledge, tlie world ha. yet produced. Vou have Interested me In yourself and your case. 1 have retained th.
heat criminal lawyer 1 can nnd to tak.
ctuirg. of your case, .nd If your Innocence I. proved I .hall deem my daughter honored In wedding .uch an eminent
fool.
This reply stung me to the quick.
I regarded it as tantamount to a refusal of his daughter's hand even If
my Innocence were proved. Aa to the
lawyer be spoke of hiring for mc. I
wrote him Immediately tbat 1 had engaged tho moat eminent counsel lu tbe
laud and would bave uo need of tba
oue be had retained.
What was my surprise, when I wus
folding and addressing this second letter,' to receive n visit from Bessie.
She threw herself Into ny arms
hysterically. I couldn't tell whether It
wus Joy or grief that moved ber.
When she became calmer I spoke of
her father'a communication.
"Father has turned right around,"
she said.   "He's your friend forever."
"Really?"
"Yea, really. He considers you Innocent of this crime with which you
.'.re charged. He aaya that no mun
who could have written thut letter
could bave committed murder and If
be did be would convince the Judge
tbut there was no ense against him,
since there is no logical difference between killing a man and a steer."
"I am glad," I said, embracing her,
"that in thousands of years one couple
may in some respects return to the
natural methods of our progenitors.
Are you quite sure your father la sincere In his change of mind toward
me?"
"1 nm. If he were not he would not
have permitted me to come here to
visit you. He says you are the first
man be ever met wbo did not talk and
act artificially. He's simply delighted
with you."
I allowed ber tbe note I had written
declining her father'a offer of counsel.
She hurst out laughing. I aaked what
amused her.
"You huven't any money to pay
counsel," she aald.
"Upou my word! 1 never thought
of thnt."
"You ure ideal and Impractical," sh*
aald. "That's the reaaon 1 love you."
And she embraced me
Our colloquy waa broken In upon
by tbe sheriff, wbo came ln to say
that tbe real murderer had been ar*
rested nnd had confessed. 1 was free
to go. At the same time be handed
me u letter poatmarked Itio Janeiro.
"Ah," I exclaimed, "my credentials!"
Slipping the letter ln my pocket, I
accompanied Bessie to her father'*
house. He greeted me warmly, aad
1 handed bim the credentials 1 bud
received at the Jail. Removing the envelope, he began to read, hia eyes opening wider as he read,
"Are you n fool or a knave?" he
aaked, looking up nt me.
"Both," 1 replied.
"What Is Ity naked Bessie.
"Why, daughter, thia pastoral business of yours haa reaulted In your
catching the only son nod heir of tb*
biggest coffee plnnter ln Brazil. I
knew when 1 received bla note that
he waa an original, but I didn't know
he was rich. You tell me," addreaslng
me, "that yon are both fool and
knave. Will you kindly Inform me of
the Introspective reasoning by which
you have arrived at tbta result?"
"Well," I replied, "no one but a fool
who haa the career before bim that I
have would apend his time sitting on
a three legged stool ln a wood daubing, and no one but a knave would
make love to a girl without ber father even knowing that he Is doing
it."
It waa decided that Bessie aad I
should be married In June, and I concluded for my prospective father-in-
law'* sake—who must hnve a noted
man for his daughter, even If a fool-
to return to Bntr.ll. I told Bessie'*
father that 1 ahould like to Iw married ln the wood on a carpet of June
roses, whereupon he aald that be bad
had enough of thai nonsense and
didn't wish any more of It,
Bo we were married la a very matter of fact faahloa at the brides horn*
of course, and anlled a few day* later
for my country.

Silver spoons were not counted b>
the host in thc days ol good Queen
liess, lor then every lady and gentle
man curried bis or her own spoon
when going out to dine. Substantia1
s|kh)|is they werc, too, not u,e.l for
mincing bites, but hail-grown Indies
with oviform bowls and squure shanks
Ouly is'isons ol wealth could ufford
them.
During the reign ol Henry VIII. the
apostle spoon came into vogue. At the
top ot the shanks were small figures
ol thu upostloa and in the days when
they were mndo it became the custom
to give u set ol 13, including one with
un clligy ol the Christ, to brides. It
was considered generous, however, to
give the wedded pair two sitoona, one
for each, with their initials plainly
marked, so there would be no eoulu
sion nt lashionnble tables. There were
also spoons which were a combination
ol marrow borer (or handle and just
plain stKKin (or tho bowl.
How the Roundheads rebelled against
the religion ot the Catholics is shown
by spoons Irom which the saints have
heen chopped. This made the shanks
hard to hold and gradually a concession to ornament was made by flattening the shanks at the end. This form
developed into tho modern spoon with
lis w'ulctopped handle. In the past
two hundred years spoons have varied
little in lonn.

NIGHT GALL

The Revelations That Came After

By   CHARLES   SLOAN   REID.
"Hal-lou-eh boo!"
It lloated over the river, up tlie Ilnle
ravine and in through the doorway of
the catilii where Mm Welleslcy sal
luuklng oui Into the night.
"Hnl-loo-ebhoo.'"
The bills, the sky. the rocks mid tbe
trees all were lost in one formless sea
of darkness auishle. hut this was urea-
-louully rifled by zigzag streaks of nre
from lhe heavens, und Mul found a
grim son of enjoyment lu watching
these.
"Hnl-lon eb-hoor
For the third time the call for the
ferryman cume sieullng through the
larkuess M.it looked back luto the
.-aliln lo where au old man lay stretch
sl across a Im-,1.
"I'isir old dad!" she murmured "It's
s pity to wake hlm-he's so tired, and
the old Isuit's a limit. Seems to uie the
Feller could Jusl as well go hack and
slay the nlghi al Amos Salter's as lo
want tn make the croasln on a ulght
like this."
"Ilal-loo-eh hoo!"
Mat urose reluctantly
"I reckon there's oothln' else for It"
she snid to herself, "hut It's hard on
lad."
She went to the bed aud put her
band on the man's shoulder.
"Dad." she called In bis ear, leaning
forwnrd.
But there was no response She waited a moment, then dropped her hnnd
u|ion his forehead.
"Oh. dad!" she exclaimed and fell to
her knees, wtth a moan, by the aide of
the bed. Tlie forehead wus clammy to
the touch, and an instinctive messenger of the truth bad darted to the girl's
heart-the old man was dead. Mat
laid her ear over bis heart, and another
moan of horror eBcaped her lips.
"Ilal-loo-eh-boo!" came over the
river, filiated lu through the cabin
loorway and fell upon the girl's ears.
The ferryman would never more
earry the boat over tbe river, and the
terrible loneliness which enme tn Mm
witb the thought almost prostrated
Ber. Alone, alone, alone with the dead,
with the storm gathering outside and
the voice on the breeze calling from
over the river.
"Hal-loo-eh-hoo! Hal-loo-eb-hoo!" It
-a me ngain.
But this time It brought a tnlte of
comfort to the ear of the girl; It re
lleved a little of ibe loneliness. A aud
den thought came to Mat's mind, ami
,be ruse and staggered to the doorway
inflating her lungs, throwing out her
chin and tiptoeing with the effort, she
called uut through the night:
"Ilal-loo-eh bulloo-eh-boul"
It thrilled through the blackness ot
lhe sky. every tremor of it bearing the
suffering of her breast Mut wmiieu
lhe companionship of a living human
being through this nlgbt, uud ahe bud
determined to take the bout over the
river fur the traveler. She had done It
before In the daytime, and she did uot
fear lhe trial at night
"Dad," she murmured, kneeling
agulu by the bedside, "you will forgive
tne fur leavln' yuu-you'll forgive tne
in heaven. I know, for leavln* yuu this
little while, but I am ao lonely."
She pressed ber lips to the clammy
brow and went oui, closing the doot
behind her. Down tbe rugged ravine,
with nothing to guide ber footsteps,
she mude her way. She kuew tbe big
lree where the bout path led off from
lhe mnln road to the lauding place al
the edge of the water, and she knew
every Inch of the path, which was now
oue with tbe unbroken darkuess of
everything. The roar of tbe river grew
louder ua she approached until she
could bear the waves lapping tbe aides
uf tbe bunt at ber feet
"llal-loo-eh boo!" Mat called softly,
and "Wnltln"' came tbe answer from
uver tbe water.
Mat shoved off In tb* long bateau
and carried II with all ber might
against the current of the Btream.
"Hal loo eh hoo!" she called again
when near the opposlt* shore, ond the
traveler's answet told ber she wus
making Ibe lauding safe.
But when the keel touched tbe sand
Mat's strong arms gave way under the
strain they had had to austalu.
"(Jet ln. stranger," ahe said, "but I
must rest before we go. It I* daya
since I brought the boat over."
"(lire me the blade. I'll take ber

moment I heard yer answer from the
bill uu Hie other aide. But where'* the
ferryman that ye're seut to bring me
across?"
The stranger had pulled the boat
luto the stream, hut ll was some lime
before Mat answered but question. She
was sitting In the stern end of tb*
boa i, with her chin on her boaom,
shedding silent tear*.
'"I'he ferryman the ferryman," ahe
stammered nl lasl, "1* deud!"
"Since wbeu?"
"Tonight." | ,| I
"An' ye're nlonel"
"Yea "
"H'm! When ye answered me tonight from over the river thn cry
brought a sadness to my heart liul
who was the ferryman*"
"Ahe Welleslcy. my father."
"H'm, h'm!" iiiuitcrcd the man aftet
severul minutes' silence, and Mat knew
thai lhe uai had ceased tu move In I_
lands
Bat presently * few quick •trots*
■•tie by Ihe strong onus of th* stranger carried the noes of the bateau out
upon the saud of the shore.
"I-andcdl" asld the man. and Mat
was conscious of a softness In hi*
tone that had not marked hi* flrsl
word*.
"Lend Ihe way." he added a* tb*
girl brushed past him ou tbe sand.
"I'll try to follow."
Mat turned along the path, and th*
•tranger kept close behind her.
"H'm, h'm!" be muttered again presently, and Ihe lone of It brought fre*b
tear* to Mat'* eyes.
Tnllaoruelv she led tb* wa* an lbs
ravine, and the man kept track of her
witb a good degree of skill.
"If ye'd left ihe door open we might
have hnd the light to lead us," be *ug-
gested,
But Mat shrugged her shoulders.
"1—1 couldn't do that," she said.
"No. I guess not" Tbe stranger'*
voice hod grown so wonderfully soft
that Mat felt an Impulse to fall back
and pat her hand upon bis arm.
But   now   tlie   faint   light   shining
through the chinks outlined the cabin
door   to   their   eyes,   und   Mat   soon
caught  ihe  laichstrlng  In   ber  hand.
Bul she paused     'I'he horror of the
death   scene   inside   tilled   her   with
dread.   The stranger came up the steps
! aud stood beside her.    it was a long
| silence.     Mat   stood   with   her   bead
; pressed against tbe door, the uupulted
latchstring  held  In ber band.    I'res-
; ently lhe stranger's arm slipped about
! ber waist, and the girl made no re-
I sisiauce.
j "Did-did ye ever heur the old man
| lay anything about Joe?" Tbe worda
i fell from his lips lu whispers, bul Mat
caue.li' them
I    "Joe! .i»k>:" she exclaimed.   "Tee. tell
me. tlo you know anything of Joe?"
"I'm Joe."
I     Mai's hand suddenly drew tight the
I latchstring, mut as the door awung lu-
i ward she burled ber face against the
! tirensi ot the stranger.
I    "I wonder, dad," said the mau a few
I minutes   later  as  be  bent   over  tbe
! -or|we on the bed, "bow many minutes
i toil late I was.   But I reckon ye know
,11 alioiit it uow."
Weeks slipped hy. and Joe Wellesley
was doing the duties of the ferryman,
i'he loneliness which bad held Mat one
awful moment bad not come upon her
again.
One day Joe mine and sat down beside Mat un the cahlu steps und lit bis
pipe.
"Ye were two yenrs old when I left
.Mat." be said presently, "an' of course
ye don't remember me theu. 1 waa
sixteen There wua a misunderstand-
lu'. Dad accused me o' taktu' bis
weasel skin with two gold pieces In It
Well. I hadn't done it. but I guessed
who luul, for the chap hud skipped uul.
Su I swore I'd follow him all uver the
west or have u eoufesulon from him,
an' I got It"
Joe unfolded a paper, and Mat read
a confession of theft
"But  It seems I got here too late
with It. Mat."
Joe sucked his pipe slowly.
"But ll warm about tbat I wanted
In talk particularly, Mat" be went on
at length.   "I reckon dad never did tell
•e anything about yerself?"
"No.    Why, Joe?"    Mat sought his
gaze.
"Never told ye that ye wum't hi*
flesh on' blood daughter?"
"What are ye telllu' me, Joe?" Mat
wns holding her breath.
".lest the truth, Mut. Your father an'
mother were killed In a tornado, an'
dad found you. without a scratch In a
haystack a buudred yards from the
house. An* somehow I kuowed after 1
left dad would never let on ye waru't
his flesh an' bone."
Silence for some time.
"But I'm glad it's that way now.
Mat, for l-l been thlnkln' that If ye'd
have me I don't see tbe use o' we two
goln' different ways through this old
world.   What d'ye say, Mat?"
"I'm so glatl we're no blood kin,
Joe," tbe girl suld softly aa he drew
ber to bim.

TO MAKE AW ASFARAGUS BED !
Direction*   by    ■    Suc.tnful   Virginia
Grower of tho Vogotabfo.
The first uuii must lm,»orlum feature
|q a good permanent uspnragus bed 18 :
having a piece uf good soil, ouiurally j
well dn_ltied and handy to the house.
It sbould be tbe best spot ta the gar-
den.
Make your soil as rich as you can
with thoroughly rutted manure, nnd
set out three-year-old plains so thut
tbe crown is Just below the surface.
Bave the routs of each plant well
spread out and cover lightly with tbe
richest dirt you cau bud, or If you
are in no hurry fur results you can
plant tbe seed either in a bed to be
transplanted ur where they will re- :
main in tbe bed. 1 prefer the latter
method, declares a Virginia corre-
spondent of Ynxm Progress, And
wben I say "bed" I mean what the
term "garden bed" Implies—that Is, a
rich, deep si.il. full uf bumus as well
as fresh organic matter, ln a dry and j
sunny place aud bave the rows to run
east und west.
If yuu plant three-year-old roots vou
van cut some asparagus the next sea-
sor If you nre in a hurry, bin it is better not to. I_nough space must be left
between the rows to cultivate and
wa k lit wben cutting the roots lu tba j
spring.
l'ut 1 would not stop at merely mak- I
inr u bed or two.    If you buve some '
rii li   land   along   fence   rows   where
there Is space enough  for something;
to grow scatter soma seed, nud the
chances are that in a few years you
will   lie  getting   as   much   asparagus
from these out of the way {duces us
from the beds that you cultivate and
pay special attention to.   And another
point, when you are planting asparagus If you are near a good town  It
may lie well t<> plant for a great deal
more than the family needs.   No oth- i
er vegetable is more salable.
If there are nnv who feel the need
of more Information they can get but-
latins on the subject from their state
experiment station or tbe department j
of agriculture at Washington.
As to those  who  already  have as- i
purugus beds,  I  will say tlmt it will !
be well worth while to put on them a j
good   thick   coat   of   good   barnyard
manure free  from   weed seed.    It Is
better to do It In the fall or winter.

of the district that is tributary to
the city of Cranhrook.

CHRISTIAN CREEDS
Which Is the True Gospel and What
Must Our Creeds Sacrifice for

Lond- n. April 2.—Pastor Russell ad-

Albert Hall tonight. Few preachers I
are so well known in Great Britain as !
he. Many uf the leading newspapers, j
both here am! in America, publish his ;
Weekly discourse.. He to.-k for his'

God and His Word has coin". Whoever thus approaches the subject cannot tail of a blessing from God, in
harmony with the Masters prayer,
"Sanctify them through Thy Truth;
Thy Word is Truth" (John Jtvii, 17).
Our topic must be. What is the Gospel of which St. Paul waa not asharn-
ed—"the faith once delivered unto thn
saints"—-"one Lord, one Faith, one
Baptism" (Jade 3; Ephesians iv, 6).
The speaker showed that tlie Roman
Oatholic Church, in order to unite witb
others, would need to cut out of hei
creed everything not found in tlie
Bible—prayers to saints, homage tu
pictures and images, the sacrifice of
the mass, holy candles, holy water,
Purgatory, the infallibility of the Pope.
and the general theory that the clergy
alone are the Chur* and brethren ol
Christ, and the laity are merely the
Children of the Church. He acknowledged that so great u concession could
scarcely be expected at once; that
the study of the Bible must prepare
Catholics to accept it as the only
standard of the "faith once delivered
to the saints."
The Protestant Episcopal creed next
had attention. Little that was objectionable was found. One point alone
Could cause any hesitancy, he was
sure—Apostolic Succession. He urged
that ni) Scripture could be found sustaining this theory in clear terms. On
lhe contrary, he gave numerous citations in proof that the twelve Apostles only possessed plenary inspiration and were directly under Divine,
control -St. Paul taking the place ol
Judas. These are the twelve foundation stones of the New Jerusalem,
and the foundations of the holy temple
mentioned by St. Peter—the twelvo
authorized by tin* Master to bind or
tj loose from doetrines and practices
(Matt, xvlii, 18).
The Westminster Confession,
foundation nf the majority of Pro*
testunt creeds, distinctly emphasizes
tlie teaching of Brother John Calvin.
We can all agree that thc words elect
and election, predestinated and foreordained are Script und terms and
that a truth must underlie aud pervade thom. Hut it will give none of
us any pain to repudiate entirely the
peculiar definitions attached to these
words by Brother Calvin. Surely we
aro all prepared to deny that a God
of Justice, (Wisdom, Love and Power
foreordained and predestinated from
before the foundation of tbe world
that everybody but the "elect" Bhould
go to eternal torment! If wo cannot
all agree as to what these terms
mean, we ran unite in denying the
atrocious doctrines of Uie past which
have so greatly dishonored our Creator
and ourselves and which have driven
•o many honest minds away from
God and from His Hook.
lieved and taught that our Almighty
Creator prepared a great hell, manned
with llre-prool demons, with the fore- >

Saviour, aft -r His ooming, when He j
was not s mt for over four thousand |
years   after   the  fall.    Looking   back j
tu the "Dark Ages," we behold with j
horror the terrible effects of this bias
phemous doctrine upon good men o' I
that   time,   who   thought   they   wen j
copying the Divine spirit and method*! j
when tney burned one another at the
stake.
As we have learned that Purgatorj
i-i not taught in the Bible, so also wt
have  learned  that   this  hell  of  oui
forefathers  is   unscrlptural—that   tlu
Bible hell is the grave, the tomb, the
state ot death.    This just penalty  for
sin  is   what   the   Bible everywhere
teaches. We now know that the Hebrew   word  sheol  of  the  Old   Testa- ,
ment, and the Greek word hades of the '<
New Testament refer to the grave, the I
state   of   death,   the   tomb;   and   that {
they   are   so   translated   more   times ,
than they are rendered hell.   We now i
know  that  in  old  English  literature |
the word hell was so used as signifying  a p t, a covered place, a grave
Tin Pastor announced that free pamphlets, discussing the word hell and
tbe   parable   of  The   Rich   Man   and
Lazarus,  etc.,  would  be  distributed
by the ushers.
With our hearts and heads agreed j
to discard thos_ features oi our creeds
not found in the Bible and, as far as
possible,   to   harmonise  what   we  do'
find therein, what is the result'    Is
it the Gospel of which St.  Paul was '
not ashamed?   The speaker submitted
•l<at it Is. ind b-dieves that all Christians could heartily unite and fellow-
.nip u.'ni its uruad basis.
John  Calvin   and   our   forefathers
were rig.it in declaring that the Scriptures teach tlie "election" oi a "little
Hock"; but they were wrong in claiming that the great mass of humanity, ,
the non-elect, are "passed by," routed
f r eternal torture.   On tlie contrary
they   all   go   to   the   Bible   hell,   the
grave.  They are all unconscious there.
The Divine promise guarantees the re-
surrection oi the dead, both the just
arid the unjust, by One Who gave His
lit.- : ir their redemption—"Wno died,
the Just for the unjust" (I. Peter iii,
13).
In  a  word,  merely  the "called o'
God" are being dealt with in the present time, although the remainder of
mankind ar,- having a "witness" and
are   learning   lessons   which   will   ba
valuable to them when their trial tirus
shall come.   We have not in the past
sufficiently noted the difference between the Church and the world. The
Church is invited to walk the "narrow
way" In the footprints of the Redeemer, bearing the cross wtth him.   The
faithful are promised a share with
Him in His heavenly glory, honor and
immortality.
But nothing is said about tormenting the world. The entire race of
Adam lias been under condemnation
for six thousand years. The coming
of Jesus and His death were not intended-to increase man's condemnation, hut, by providing for their resurrection, to set them free from
Adamic condemnation—to give to each
and to all a full, fair opportunity to
demonstrate their love of sin or love of
righteousness,  when  the  latter shall
be fully as easy as the former—during1  town to town was mark
Messiah's glorious reign of righteous- 0f   self-inflicted   murd
i ness—the thousand years. The reward
for well-doing will then be human
perfection iu a sinless   Paradise   re-
j stored.
Brother   John   Wesley   lived   in   a
I time when practically all Christians
I had accepted Brother Calvin's theory
| that God had foreordained the great
mass of humanity to eternal misery.
[ Brother Wesley's heart was tender and
thi. I sympathetic.    He  could  not  believe
Kt-aat uay oi wmen Jesus and tne
ipost les and the PropheUAOBHnually
spoke, lt will be doomsday only for
all the systems of iniquity and unrighteousness.
Have  we  not   all  felt  more or less
ashamed   of   the   unsatisfactory   presentations of our various creeds? said
Pest or Russell,    ls  it  not time that
from self-respect, as well as from respect for the Almighty, we repudiate
them?    Have I not presented lo you
this evening the Bible message which
the angels proclaimed at the birth of
Jesus—"Behold,   we   bring   you   good
tidings  of  great joy   which  shall be
unto all people?"  (Luke :i, 10).   No
Gospel message  reached  anybody  be
fore Jesus  "brought  life  and  iinmor-
J tality to light  t.trough His Gospel."
i This   "great   salvation   began   to   be
! spoken by our Lord." as the Apostle
i declares (Hebrews ii. 3).  None heard
j it during the lirst four thousand y 'am.
a.id   not   more   than   one-fourth   of
! humanity   have  heard   it  during  the
j last   two   thousand   years.     And   the
i message  which has been  proclaimed

tor every  text  appertaining  to  Flection, as well aa to every text teaching
Free Grace.    It shows the Justice of

ing back the dead to life and in up- '
lifting all the willing and obedient of '
earth   to   human   perfection   and   an '

Wisdom,  Love and  Power are all demonstrated   m   his   wonderful   favor
toward the saintly few now being developed   as   the    Br.de,   the   Lamb's

Let us, beloved brethren, lay aside
every weight and hindrance. Let us
cume quickly into the "narrow way"
and walk in the footsteps of the Redeemer and make our "calling and

Many centuries atfo there lived a

He was a man nf great eloquence and
he went about declaiming to multitudes and drawing for them the dismal condition'^ of mortal man. "Life
is no better than death! Life is no

So vividly did he paint the horrors
of life that many who henrd him
committed suicide. His journey from

One day
after he had finished speaking an
attentive listener went up to him and
asked:
"If life is no better than deuth,

When one of the Pell's friends was

The Pastor could not think that the
Baptist and Dlsclpla brethren would
have much difficulty in rejecting
water Immersion, as a test of Christian fellowship, if once they bsw the*
matter in its trua light, thus: The
Disciples, in holding that immersion
In water is for the remission of sins,
are claiming, in fact, that all not
thus immersed are IobI — doomed to
eternal torment, according to their
theory. Baptists should see the ab*
surdity of claiming that only the water immersed are members of tha
Church of Christ, for thus, according
to their theory, tbey doom to eternal
torture, as unsaved, all «jf their Christian brethren who have not been immersed. Surely Baptists anil Disci-
pies, thereforo, may be expected to
promptly and heartily repudiate these
test features of their theories.

recalls the rather curious coincidence
that he. Lord CVr'ngton, and Lord Elgin, who sat together in the late Sir
Henry Campbell-Bannermun'a Cabinet, were all born on the same day o'
the year—via., May 16th. A powerful
speaker, Lord Wolverhampton never
wrote out his speeches His plan was
to saturate his mind with the facts,
and then to make a few notes of the
order in which he proposed to deal
with them in his speech. "If you
would become h great speaker," he
once snid, "practice, practice, practice, and always he sure of your
facts." He was the first solicitor and
one of the first Nonconformists to be
admitted to the Cabinet, as well as
the first Wesloynn Methodi_t to be
raised to the peerage.

But the old lady rattled on incessantly until she had to pause for breath.

wit' the appointment, made by the

the olllce ol historian of the apostolic

the work of the modern notary was

APPLYING THE PROBE
Hamar Greenwood', Tip.
In a recent article it was .lated that
if Mr. Hamar Greenwood once con*
qnere I the British House ol Commons
nothing seemed to be in the path ol
a brilliant career. Mr. Greenwood
quick'y signalized his return to the
House by making a speech, the second
of his career, the opportunity being
afforded by the precipitation of a tariff discussion which enabled Mr.
Greenwood to tell what he knows
about Canada.
In some wayB Mr. Greenwood'*, care' : has been a marvel. He went to
England immediately alter graduating
Irom the University of Toronto, with*
out friends, without fortune, without
anything but his own personality. A
story is told of him which is probably
ai<rryphal but well illustrates the
Greenwood temperament. It is related that on one occasion when Greenwood was lecturing in the cause of
temperance, he was a guert at a grand
country house in the English village
where he was to sneak. In the morning a valet entered the guest chamber
an', proceeded to arrange Mr. Greenwood s apparel. Out of a trousers'
pocket dropped a two-and-sixpence,
which was, as it happened, at the moment the entire liquid capital ol the
coming statesman. Alter a time the
guest opened his eyes The valet who,
no doubt, had his own impressions
about the meagre contents of the
guest's pockets, remarked: "The two-
and-sixpence which dropped out of
your pocket I have laid ou the table,
sir." Greenwood's reply came back,
"Oh! that is << you, my man. I left
it in that pocket for you in case I did
not waken."
Those days are not so long since,
hut in another sense are far away.
Apart from politics, Mr. Greenwood's
law practice is now understood to be
exceedingly remune' '.tive.

DR. MERCHANT WILL SOON FINISH BILINGUAL REPORT.
The Man Who Has ths Investigation

Ont., In lit. and Has a Splendid
Record as T.sch.r and Educational
Official—Author of Tex, Books.
The statement of Sir James Whitney the day before the Ontario Legislature closed that the Government
could do nothing in the matter ol bilingual schools until a report was received lias had a tendency to once
more throw the spot-light on Dr. F. W.
Merchant.
That gentleman in his capacity ot
chief inspector of schools tor the province is now going over the ground
to see tor himself what the state of affairs is. Thus far the chiel reports
have been from local inspectors who
are scarcely favorable to two-language
primary schools.
Dr. Merchant's report iB now eagerly awaited by the authorities and the
public and wilt no doubt greatly
strengthen the bands ol those who are
opposed to the bilingual system. The
abdity and standing of the chiet Inspector and his high character give as-
DR. r. W. MERCHANT.
surance that the tacts ol the case will
be impartially stated and that the
Government and public will be placed
in a position to fully understand the
whole educational situation in as far
us these bilingual schools are concerned. Francis Walter Merchant,
educationist, was born at Oil Springs.
Ont., in 1666, and was educated at
Albert College Grammar Sch.iol and
Albert University, taking his B.A. in
1878 and Ins M.A. in 1880. He commenced his career as a teacher in 1876
and has been principal of the High
Schools at Port Dover and nt Aylmer,
Ont., and at Collegiate Institutes at
Ingersoll, Owen Sound, Stratford and
London. He was for a time lecturer
in physics in the Western University
and College and he is the uuthor ot
a number of text books oil physics
and other similar works. He stood
tor many years in the fore front ut his
profession as a teacher and since being appointed chiet inspector ot the
firovince he hns made a splendid repu.
ation for himself as a competent,
progressive educational official.
Sir Edward Clarke, K.C.
Born within the sound of Bow
Bells, Sir Edwurd Clarke,'K.C, re-
cent!y completed his seventieth year.
He is entirely n self-made man, and
it wns through winning a scholarship
at King's College that he was ab'.e
to enter the legal profession. During
his first twelve months as a barrister
he made only $600, but in less than
thirteen years he had brought his
professional income up to $16,000.
He is the inventor of an Ingenious
system of shorthand. Some time ngo
Sir Edward confessed that: "For
twenty yenrs I was in the volunteers.
I was always a full private, more or
less efficient. We went for long
marches, principally by train, to
Wimbledon Common, and we fought
sham fights at Newhaven. Although
we had our uses, I should not like to
claim that we were efficient according to the modern notions. Still, I
strongly object to the description of
an individual that I, as a volunteer,
was 'born in a panic, nursed in neglect, and grew in my maturity into
a military monstrosity.'"

IN THREE ACCIDENTS!
It would seem thnt Znm-Ruk, the
famous healing Imlm wo ht*nr so highly spoknn of everywhere, is particularly useful in the family circle. A
report sent hy Mrs. E. Dnvey, 786
Kllice Ave., Winnipeg, will illustrate
this. She says: "My little hoy, of
three, while plnying, fell from a high
verandah to the ground, cutting his
forehead badly. Instead of calling a
doctor who would undoubtedly have
put in a number of stitches, I bathed
the wound well, and applied Zam-
Buk. The little fellow, although suffering keenly, soon had relief from
his pain. In the course of three
weeks, by applying Zam-Buk daily,
the wound was nicely healed.
"Since then I have also used
Zam-Buk for a boil which came on
my check, and which proved very
painful und looked unsightly, Zum-
Buk soon drew the boil to a heud
and it then quickly banished it.
"Another time my baby was scalded on her left thigh and calf of leg
with boiling water. Directly it was
done I thought to use Zam-Buk, nnd
spreading some on lint I wrapped up
the baby's limb. Next morning she
rested much easier and I applied a
fresh bandage with Zam-Buk. I kept
this treatment up daily, and was rewarded by seeing a great improvement each time I dressed the wound.
In a very short space of time the
scalds were all nicely healed.
"I cannot recommend tins wonder*
ful healing preparation too highly for
family use, and I have such grout
faith in its healing powers that my
house is never without a box."
For all skin injuries and diseases,
piles, eczema, salt rheum, and face

William Kuke, who introduced
Patti, Trcbelli and Christine Nilsson
to the concert platform in Kngland, is
eigthy-seven years old, an age which,
he thinks, entitles him to be known
as the oldest musician in the world.
He was born in Prague in 1823, the
son of German parents. He is a pinn-
ist and has given concerts in association with some of the world's most
famous artists.
Feeding tht Heifer For Future Dairy
Usefulness.
It ts very necessary thut the dairy
cow have u large, strong aud well distended digestive oppurutus. For tlie
purpose of dt»velopmy iIih [mrtlon of
tier give tbe bei ter free access to
roughage of a palatable nature, such
■s com sllnge und clover, alfalfa or
oat huy, says Q, G. Van Pelt in Farm
und Fireside. Clover, alfalfa or oat
huy are specified lU preference to timothy nay. corn stover or straw, because they contain a much larger percentage of protein, which nutrient Is
useful lu growing bone and muscle,
und for this reason by their use great*
er growtli of the eow will be secured.
Small potatoes, mangels ami carrots
■re very useful for winter feeding Id
that tbey are succulent and keep the
digestive appuratus lu excellent condl.

It Is not advisable to feed her heavily of concentrated grains until after
she freshens. Four pounds a day of a
mixture of equal parts ground corn,
ground oats, bran nud ollmeul will
keep her Ih excellent condition and
growing rapidly when fed In conjunction with the roughage.
There ls a difference of opinion ns to
when heifers should freshen, but If
fed well during their early life they
are large and strong nt the age of
twenty-four months and should freshen
then In order that ihey may early in
life attain tbe liubit of converting a
large portion of ihelr food Into milk
aad butler fat rattier than Into beef
and body fat. It. on tbe other band,
tbe cow ls small for her age. breed
considered, It Is oftentimes better to
allow her to develop further and
freshen at tbe age ot thirty months.

Broken Down Swine.
The breaking down of swine In the
bind legs or ull fours is a well known
difficulty tbut fanners are obliged to
coutend with, says tbe Furiu Journal,
Animals begin by showing weakness in
the bind legs or a knuckling over of
the rear fetlock Joints and it not given
treatment soon become helpless. It is
believed to be due to tbe overfeeding
of corn for generations, to tbe exclusion of tbe phosphate supplying grains.
The trouble ts seen most frequently
tn brood sows which exhaust this element ln nourishing tbe fetus und suckling the young. It should be warded
against by feeding the sow during
pregnancy und while nursing ou ground
oats, bran nnd ollmeul, with us much
milk as possible.
With tbe first symptoms the following treatment should be begun, both
for sows nnd for shotes three or four
months of age: Oue tublespoonful of
cod liver oil. fifteen grains of phosphate of lime and three drops of the
fluid extract of mix vomica at a dose
In a little food twice a day for several
weeks If necessary. A cure cannot
be guaranteed when the cuse bas run
too long.
Contagious Abortion.
I bave bundled dairy cows for tbe
last fifteen years und I nm glad to suy
that 1 huve never bud any case of contagious abortion, writes a correspondent
of the Country Gentleman. I bave always made It a practice at least twice
a week all through tbe winter to mts
up a gallon or so of warm water and
some carbolic dip solution, get a dandy
brush and dip ln mixture and give
every cow and heifer tn the barn a
good soaking all around the tall head
and let lt run down the tall. Do this
ln the middle of tbe day and there will
be no danger of tbe disinfectant's flavoring the milk. I know of three
neighboring farms where this was
done summer and winter, and for five
years not a single case of abortion occurred among a total of 125 dairy
cows.
