A Sporting Offer.
Lord lnverclyde, chairman at the
annual dinner uf the Glasgow Shipowners' and Shiphrokera' Henevolent
Association, went into business with
Messrs. Q. and J. Burns, of Glasgow,
on leaving itepton, and acquired a
knowledge of -hipping affairs, which
subsequently made him known in the
House ol Lords aa the representative
of shipping.
Then, again, Lord lnverclyde is one
of the best-known sportsmen in the
north, and besides being a good shot,
is an expert at hockey, and curling.
His lordship has recounted many good
stories, one of his best concerning a
pigeon-shooting match: A party of
amateur pigeon-shooters wine time
agu arranged for a match, and ordered thirty pigeons from a dealer in
a neighboring town, The shooting waa
of a really marvellous character; but
the actual performances need not be
described in detail.
The net results will be gathered
readily from the following note, which
was subsequently received from the
dealer. It ran:—"Gentlemen,—I beg
sincerely to thank you for your order,
and to intimate that I shall be only
too happy to supply you with any
number of birds on future occasions of
this sort. The whole of the thirty
birds, for which you paid me at the
rate uf eightpence per head, returned
home in safety, and moreover,
brought with them a stray pigeon. My
price to your party henceforth will
be sixpence a doy.cn "

SPRING REMINDERS
OF RHEUMATISM
RAW,  DAMP   WEATHER    STARTS
THE PAIN, BUT THE TROUBLE
LIES IN THE BLOOD.
■ Spring weather is bad lor rheumatic
sufferers. The changes from mild to
severe weather, cold, raw, dump winds
following mildness start the aches and
twinges, or in more extreme cases, the
tortures of tho trouble going. But it
must be borne in mind that it is not
the weather that causes rheumatism,
tlie trouble is rooted in the blood—the
changeable weather merely starts the
pains. Thc only way to reach the
trouble and to euro it is through tlie
blood. The poisonous rheumatic acids
must bo thrown off and driven out.
This is a solemn medical truth every
rheumatic sufferer should realize.
Liniments and outward application
may give temporary relief but they
never did and never can eure rheumatism, Any doctor will tell you this is
true. The suflerer is only wasting
time and money with this sort of
treatment, nnd all the tini" Ihe trouble is becoming more firmly rooted—
and harder to euro. There is just one
sure, speedy cure for rheumatism—
Dr. Williams' 1'iuk I'ills. They act
directly on tho weak, impure and
tainted blood, They purify and
strengthen it and thus root out the
cause ol rheumatism, Here is a bit
ol proof out of thousands nf similar
eases lhat might be given. Mrs. K.
X. Boissoatl, St, Jerome, Que., says:
—"For almost two years 1 wiih a terrible sufferer from rheumatism. Tlie
trouble llrst loeuted in the riglit leg,
milking work about the house impossible, and walking very difficult, I
tried to eure mysell by means of all
sorts nf liniments and lotions, hut
with no result—it waH only money
win—cd. The trouble constanlly grew
worse nnd lhe pains more unbearable,
Finally it attacked the other leg, and
I was all but helpless and completely
discouraged, thinking 1 would be a
sufferer Ior tlie rest ol my Iile. At
tliis time 1 reail in our home paper ol
Ilie trouble being cured by Dr. Williams' I'ink I'ills uud I decided to try
them. Alter using the pills tor hov-
ernl weeks I could see thut thoy were
helping me, nnd I continued taking
them until 1 bud used nine or ten
boxes when every symptom ol the
ttiilk as well as ever I did, Hud I

A Consumption Curt
Milk strippings when taken from a
healthy cow that gives very rich milk
and taken In quantities of a quart
twice a day immediately after milking helore it cools any, will cure a
larger per cent, ol cases of consumption than any other treatment and
will cure in half the time ol any
other method. It will also prevent it
when taken in time. The renson why
it is so successful is because it is absorbed or transfused into the circulation almost Immediately without
taxing the digestive organs as other
foods do, and as the strippings or
last quart of the milking from a cow
that gives very ricli milk is nenrly all
cream the patient will tnkc on fat so
much faster than cnn be accomplish-j
cd by any other method that they
soon gain enough strength and vitnli-l
ty to overcome the germs causing
consumption.
To get best results one should begin
with u glttss of strippings and in-!
crease gradually; but if there is nny
disgust created for it any time the
quantity should be dropped at once to
one hull and then increase gradually
again. In two or three weeks they can
usually tnkc a qunTt in the morning
and evening.
It is very important to take it
Immediately after milking so us not
to allow it to cool below blood heat.
In cold weathar it should be milked
into a dish resting in warm water to
prevent it from eooling any.

The Pale Poet and the President
A pale poet who wrote pale poetry
was taken to tho White House one
day and presented to President Roosevelt by a friend. The friend and tlie
President hml occasion to go downstairs, followed by the pale poet, who
lagged a few steps behind.
"I don't like that man's poetry,"
snid the President.    "It is anaemic."
When the President left, the poet
turned lo his friend and said, "Did 1
understand the President to refer to
my poetry ns anaemic?"
"AnaomicP" said the friend. "Oh,
not" And then, working his wits!
overtime, he added: "You misunderstood.    He said  it was academic."

Nothing very original about that, you

In tbe matter at nil I didn't supply It
Kate lays all the plots for stories, and
all we scribblers do is to write them
op. Nevertheless, though 1 didn't
know it, I was doing lhe biggest Job
or my life. Aud do you know while I
thought I waa writing a blood and
thunder lore tragedy I was turning
bitterness and gall In a real household
Into a great happiness.
Tbe story was coming out, the installments appearing once a week. 1
bad convicted the hero, and be waa
walling tbe result or an appeal which
I Intended to buve denied by a merciless Judge. I wns writing the description uf the hanging nnd Intended
as soon us It waa over lo drive the
heroine Insane and conclude with ber
shrieks dying uwny griiduntty as doors
were closing behind ber In a madhouse. The Issue or the paper had appeared contnlnlng nn explanation of
thnt chain of circumstances which had
convicted the murderer. Though tbey
were not to snve hlin. I felt bound to
show my skill In rinding n key lo them
which If brought to light would snve
the victim. Hut, relying na I did on a
double tragedy nl lhe end. I proposed
to bring out the key when It wus too
late to do nny good You see. I didn't
Intend to spoil lhe tragic effect hy beiug chicken hearted, especlnlly aa the
people Involved were merely creatures
of my own bruin. Resides, I remembered the Insiriictlons of the managing editor, and I waa to attract the
attention of lhe reading public, which
Increases the circulation of tbe pnper
•nd brings in lbe ndverilsements, the
nltlninle object of the whole thing.
, About a week after tbe appearance
of the Issue containing tbe explanation of the Incidents thut had proved
Hayeroft guilty, while I waa engaged
writing the removal of dwendolln to
a madhouse, n servant knocked at my
door to any lhat a man waa downstairs
wbo wished to see me.
"(let out of here." 1 cried, "nnd tell

■ The mnld went away and returned

the sort to can" me to break off from
my work, and, throwing down my pen,
1 hastened away. The man bad burled
bla face In the lounge pillows and waa
giving way to violent spasmodic eon
tortious. Hearing me enter, be arose
and faced me. I never saw greater
agony on any face. He looked from
me to the maid and pointed to the
door. I told her to leave ns and cloned
the door Is-hlnd ber. Then I turned
to my visitor.
"Uow did you get on to 117" be asked,
hia eyes starting out of bla bead.
"Uet on to what)"
"My making up that prescription

"What prcscrlptlonr
"That killed tbe man In your story."
"Killed the wan in my story!" 1 repeated, my eyes bulging witb astonish
meut. I had been writing of an Imaginary lunatic, and my Drat Impression
wus thut I had a real one before me.
"V.i.i culled bim Chesterton."
"Welir
"Oh. my God! Be waa Middleton.
Vou might aa well bave given tbe real
name aa oue so like It"
I stood staring at the man for awhile,
then said to bim:
"My friend, you must pardon me for
ex. using myself, but 1 have no time to
devote to cranks. 1 am putting tbe
finishing touches to tbe serial you
speak of, and tbe copy must be ready
this afternoon. The hero has been executed, the girl wbo loved bim bas
gone mud. nnd"—
1 didn't finish tbe sentence, for the
fellow fell lu ii fit true enough. 1 picked him up and Inld him on the lounge.
As soon us he quieted down a bit be
started up and begun to talk in a
hoarse whisper Jusl as people on the
dramatic stage do when they hnve
something harrowing to communicate.
"I'm u drug clerk. Oue dny a prescription came In and I put It up.
Hours after It bud gone uut I found a

The mnn hud given the key to the

office. I told the story to Heaton.
"Shake!" he aald. thrusting out his
baud and grasping mine ln an Iron

Then I called the drug clerk In and
Introduced him to the managing editor
Heaton gave bim whnt money ba
wanted and told him to go where he
liked-leaving bis address, of course—
and keep bla mouth abut The next
morning out came acare beads announcing tbat a remarkable combination detective-Action exploit bad led to
the discovery tbat George Barton, tbe
man wbo hod been convicted of tbe
murder of Bunker Middleton, waa innocent. Thla set everybody agog for
tbe next Issue.
In the morning we announced tbat
tbe pnper bnd produced a drug clerk
whose mistake had caused the poisoning of Middleton. A hlut waa thrown
out that an uutbordetective who wrote
exclusively for tbe paper had built a
theory of his own aa to the cause of
Middleton'a death and bad written the
story with tbe Intent of bringing out
tbe real culprit
And ao It came about tbat an Innocent man was saved from a banging
because |>eople like to read about such
tragedies aud because I waa lustrue-
ed to bong an Imaginary character.
Rut, after all, did It not come about on
the principal of an ad.?
We got Ihe drug clerk off with light
punishment and bnd Barton up In our
editorial rooms, where I waa Introduced lo bim aa tbe man who bad
saved him from a felon'a death. He
asked me If I bnd really written tbe
story on lhe theory thnt Middleton had
been poisoned hy the mistake of a
drug clerk The look of noncommittal
wisdom I put ou wus a stroke of
genius. It claimed nothing for me, but
hel|H'd tbe pa|HT.
There wns anolker coincidence which
I hnve left to the lust, for II la the
touching part Barton waa engaged to
a very lovely girl. She bad stood by
him during hia trial, coulldent In bis
Innocence Burton asked me to go la
see her, und I did ao. The Interview
was very affecting. She told me thnt
If ber fiance hnd been executed ahe believed she would have gone innd. as

realized thnt better things bad been

She fllugs herself recklessly into the
mad rush for pleasure, devouring It at
whatever cost. She tulks In u vernacular thut ia ofteu unintelligible to cub
tilled people. She ls lucking in dignity aud good tuste.
This Is a sweeping arraignment, but
ull of us have met this type often
enough to know that It hears tbe outline of truth und suould point a moral

explains tbe urtllb-inl excitement of

It brushes nway with relentless
hands tbe charm and simplicity of

makes companions of cynicism aud

vision of life nnd drags cureless young
feet through tbe ugly marshes of materialism.
II throws upon life ot the very out-

robs u young girt of a proper sense of

And the girl wbo bus uo eye for the

Brum on tbe surfuce pour off tbe water
and add fresh cold wuter. A better
way, If one has time, Is to remove the
kidneys, put them In u new pot or lay
them aside u moment until Ihe pot they
were cooked in has been thoroughly
washed uut. Then put tbem back. In
order lo get tlie strong tlttvor out of
this meat It is necessary to remove as
much scum uud blood from It us possible. Let ttiem reheat ln water a second time. Then pour off this second
water nnd treat as before. It tuny lie
necessary to do It a third und a fourth
time also. When the stage la reached
la which the water ls quite clear and
free from scum cut up oue or two
onions—a good slued une for every kidney—une or two small carrots uud one
or two potatoes. Tut them into the
watcr around the meut uud cook slowly for ubout two hours or until a
gravy Is formed, dome cooks add a
little lemon Juice or part of tbe yellow

She was told there was none, bul bad
enquiries made, which resulted in the
telegram being found, set aside. It

war name, indeed, is just as old fu the
: title   itself.     It   appeared   lirst  on   the
navy list iu ITi*. in honor ol Qeorgo
the    S'Oond's     -trollg-tuindeil     eldest
daughter, the Princes! Anne, married
'. In 17.14 to lbe   Prince ol Orange.    \
| second man-of-war here it in honor
of George the Third's eldest daughter,
lho Princess Clinrlotte-Augusta-Matll-
da, "n chaste ami gentle Princess,''
married in 1707 to the luturo King ol
Wurtemburg. The third wns given
the name in honor ol Queen Victoria's
eldest daughter, the Into Empress
Frederick; and a fourth shin now
takes it In honor ol King Edward's
eldest daughter, the Duchess ol File.
Rigid economy in naval matters and
little shipbuilding marked the earlier
days of George lite Second, so that
monarch had to content himself bv
taking nway the name ol an old ship
and substituting Princess Royal lor
it. The man-of-war in question was
un old three-decker ol William the
Third's nuvy. originally named the
Triumph. H.M.S. Princess Royal the
First lost the only chance she got ol
firing an angry gun. That was In
1744, when her admiral was Sir John
Norris.    "Foul    Weather   Jack"—tbe
| llrst ol the two the nnvy has had.
Just as Norris had caught up the
French fleet he was chasing and a
bnttle seemed inevitable, one ol the
admiral's storms burst, and tbe fleets
were lorced ttpal't and never sighted
one another again.
H.M.S. Princess Royal the Second
was launched ill 1773. by Oeorge the
Third's brother, the Duke ol Gloucester. The little girl Princess Royal of
that day, a nine-year-old child, was
sculptured as the figurehead, "The
Princess Royal is seen seated on a
chair supported on the shoulders ol
Neptune und Atnphitrite, who ride on
dolphins. Many Tritons are playing
about tbem." So u newspaper reporter wbo witnessed the launched ut
Portsmouth described the figurehead.
"Foul Weather Jack" tho second,
Admiral John Byron, Lord Byron's
grandfather, who "bod no rest ab
sen." wns ber first admiral, and bis
ill-luck came 1,11 board with him.
Starting Irom England to tuke up
the chiel command ofl New York in
the American war with u fleet ol
thirteen ships, storm after storm fell
j on him. Only two ships arrived at
the rendezvous, the Princess Royal
and another. A third crawled in later
on, ber musts gone, und leaking badly. Three more bud to turn buck,
buttered wrecks, lor England. The
remainder, with signals ol distress
flying, put into various American bur*
bors. When Admiral llyrnn at length
got tbem together and refitted, and
was sailing lor the West Indies, two
of them were wrecked in another
storm. He was reinforced and met
the French ofl Grenada, made n blundering attack, uini wus badly mauled,
being lucky to escape defeat nnd the
loss ol half his fleet. After tbat the
Princess Royal fought iu three battles
under Rodnev. and then went botno
to England to be presettt at ihe sinking of the Royal George, and to take
part with Lord Howe in the final relief of Gibraltar, which closed the
great siege. Then cume the war with
Ibe French revolution, nnd we see tbe
Princess Royal in the 'hick ol the
midnight horrors ol the fighting in
Toulon Harbor when an "unknown
captain of artillery" Napoleon Bonn-
parte, drove tbe British fleet out headlong. Two fights with the French in
1795, one off Genoa, the other near
Toulon, make up the Princess Royal's
record oi eight battles. For some
yours alter that the Princess Royal
hud her place in the Channel Fleet,
helping to hold in check Napoleon's
intended invasion irom Boulogne, one
of   "those   lar-dlatant   storm-baaten
.ships upon which the Grand Army
never looked, but which stoed between it and the dominion ol the
world." Her end, to be taken to
pieces at Chatham, came two yenrs

Plnce three almonds on the table and

Then pick up eni h hat, take the uut

After one of the three hats is selected you wave your band mysteriously
j over the hat. say "Hocus pocus," aud
place the bat un your head.
This U nn old trick, but lt always

WORKING FOR PBAOB.
The United States is one of the six
great powers that shape the course
of history and civilization. The
presidency of this nation is a seat of
tho mighty which in opportunities of
influence yields only to the papacy.
When such a representative of such
n people proposes absolute arbitration of all questions between America and England he rnises hopes for
all nations and races.
Tbe governmental force that drags
back most heavily on the movement
for disarmament nnd peace among all
people is the medieval feeling and attitude of such sovereigns as Emperor William and Tsar Nicholas and of
such states as Austria-Hungary and
Russia. Their people groan and
sweat under the burdens of armies,
navies and preparations of war, but
the rulers and governments are obsessed with the glumour of military
prestige and the seeming necessity of
keeping questions of national honor
and territory out of the scope of arbitration.
America and England have outgrown these feudal ideas of warring
civilization ns to the standards and
principles of honor. their people
and their governments have learned
hy the inspiring and hallowing experience of nearly a century of unbroken peace that these two nations
at least can. if they sincerely desire
it, adjust differences involving national honor as gentlemen adjust
theirs—without resort  to  war.
hut tins great gain could not have
been won unless America had shown
that it possesses power to enforce
peace as wall as that it loves and
seeks peace. So long as European
powers build up colossal armaments,
and the United States has dominions
oversea and the Panama canal to defend, so long, uh Mr, Roosevelt has
shown, it remains needful for the
United States to havo a great nnvy,
Efforts for disarmament and arbitration should be pushed unremittingly, but the crention of an adequate
fieet should not he neglected.—Spok-

too little the comforts of life; the

take a few lessons in frugality from

IMPORTANT TO FARMERS
The Hritish Columbia Stock Breeder's Association has been organized
for some years and during this time
it has been working on lines of improvement in the live stock industry
of the Province. It has endeavored
in many ways to assist breeders of
pure bred live stock and to improve
existing conditions pertaining to tbe
industry. While its primary function is tbat of education it has also
undertaken much practical work. Por
the ensuing year it will assist in defraying transportation charges on
pure bred stock imported Into the
Province, as well ax stock shipped
from point to point within the Pro-
ince, to all who are members of the
association.
Among other things, it is also pra-
viding Special Prizes at the leading
Pall Fairs, for this year; also prizes
(or Stock Judging Cumpetlous will
be carried on under thc auspices of
thc Association and it is advisable
that all intending competitors in
this competition should become members of the Association.
Recently the Directors decided tbat
a Directory should he published in
connection with the forthcoming annual report, which will soon be
the press. Thc Secretary has been f pany, yet experts are convinced tbat
instructed to compile a Directory of! other areas equally large and con-
pure bred live stock, which is being; talning coal of like high quality are
bred by all thc members. This DI- still awaiting only transportation
rectory should be the means of en-i facilities in this East Kootenay
couraging stock sales throughout the country to be developed
THE PREMIER'S OPINION.
During the second reading in the
Provincial Legislature of the bill to
amend the Coal Mines Regulations
Act,     Hon. Mr. McBride said:
"I am glad now to be able to report to this House that since prorogation last spring the department of
mines bas prepared and now presents
a thoroughly up-to-date law for thu
regulation of the coal mines of tbe
province for your consideration during thia session."
"The Southeast Kootenay country
brings us to the largest and possibly
most important of all the coal fields
which we in British Columbia can
claim. The illimitable extent of tbe
East Kootenay coal fields have obtained world-wide recognition, people going abroad from tbis province
and telling of its resources have in
the past heen very liable to have
their veracity called into question,
when they have told of the inexhaustible resources of the coal fields of
Southeast Kootenay, but all the experts who come here and investigate
for themselves are at once convinced
of the superlative greatness of our
resources tn that particular section.
And large and valuable as arc the
inines of the Crow's Nest Coal Com-

The citizens of Everett, Wash.,

the
agreement between  the mine owners  dark, whether thoy are nrmWI or not.
and mine workers for thc operation
of the coal mines in the Crow's Nest
Pass, and in Alberta, is at au end.
Mine owners, until a day or two
ago, were optimistic regarding a sot-
tleincnt. Now they seem to feel that
the mine workers are so unreasonable in their demands tbat the dispute
bad better be fought to a finish at
thii time.
The city council hns ent out the appropriation for street lighting on account of no revenue being received
from liquor licenses.
They ure possibly going on the
assumption tbat if there are no
licenses, the men of Seattle will he
ahle to get home without any light.
It is not often that liquor men are
called upon to "lighten the darkness."
Province, and at least, it will be a
means of advertising. Blank forms
to he filled in for tbe Directory have
heen sent to all present members hut
should any one desire to become a
member, in order that they may
have their breed of stock listed Ln
the Directory, they should become
a member of thc Association at once
and send in a list of the pure bred
stock which they are breeding.
Also as a    member of the Association, any one of these four Agricultural Journals are given gratis.
Farm and Dairy,
Farmer's Advocate, Western edition.
Farmer's Advocate, Enstern edition.

When sending in membership tec
do not fail to state which papor yon
desire The annual membership fee
to tho Association is .**1.on and may
be forwarded to the Secrotary, Department of  Agriculture,   Victoria.
It iu interesting to note the number of persons employed in coal
mines In British Columbia. There
are today some 7,000 odd, perhaps I
might safely say 8,000 persons engaged in the coal mining industry
directly in this province. The last
statement from the department,
which I should judge would be au-
thoritlve, makes a return of 7,702
actually engaged in the coal mine
business in this province. There is
a gratifying feature in this as wr
tind that ot the total number only
<!(>!! were Asiatics, of these 12ft wore
Japanese and f>44 were Chlneso; so
thnt It Is gratifying to tind that the
coal mines arc In control of white
mon to so large an extent, The
proportion of Asiatics is gradually
diminishing, nnd I am glad to be
able to report thnt I tind among the
ooal mine owners u general disposition to invite white labor to come
to British Columbln."

or as sonic enthusiasts clnim, nny-
where in tbe world, writes Currie
Love in the Toronto "Globe."
The construction of n great Canadian highway fcom the Atlantic to
the Paciflc Const is the question engaging the attention of motorists ull
over North America since the Hon.
Thomas Taylor Minister of Public
Works for Hritish Columbia, hns interested himself in tho building of n
road trom Vancouver through the
mountains to thc western boundary
of the province of Alberta, which,
when accomplished, will bu joined
from the south by the Pacific highway, leading from Mexico through
Vancouver, and on the east by the
road the Dominion Government in
now planning from Calgary to Band
nnd from Banff to Windermere in the
Columbia Valley. Eastward from
Calgary the road to the Canadian
boundary line requires but little engineering work, the trails of Alberta
nnd Saskatchewan being unexcelled
for motor travel.
Hut it is in the Btretcb of road
from Vancouver eastward to Banff
that we are especially interested, for
the thousands of tourists who annually ship their cars to California will
now return via the coast, and then
on through the mountains. While
en route the fertile districts of British Columbia will assuredly tempt
many world travellers to settle down
and rest awhile within sight of thc
splendors of the mountains, and
those who do so are almost certain
to establish summer residence amidst
the glories and wonders of n hitherto
almost unopened country.
Could one imagine anything more
beautiful than mile and mile of glit-'
terlng road, stretching along by the [
plctureasqe Fraser and Thompson j
canyons, winding through forests and j
skirting by mountain sides, past,
river, lake and seashore? The rond j
will surely combine greater variety
of beauty and grandeur than any yet
opened up for travel on any continent.
Just imagine how beautifully 'the
sombre cedars, the hemlock, aud the;
serried rows ot tlrs that clothe the
rocky slopes contrast with the ex-j
quisitely colored mountain flora that
nestle and glow in vivid patches of I
color here and there amidst thc j
green.
Across the peaks the clouds float |
slowly, like drifting smoke, obscuring and then revealing the snow-cap ■ I
pod summits. Along you go through
narrow, winding canyons, black walls;
of rock, towering on either side and
a roaring mountain torrent tumbling!
and foaming beneath; then skirting
one of the beautiful Arrowhead lakes,!
that lie like gems in an emerald setting, you come from Vancouver to'
the Columbia Valley.
Picture to yourself how beautiful
it is—this stretch of over a hundred
miles of a lovely country. With the
Rockies on one side and the Selkirks
on the other you glide along past!
stretches of fertile fruit groves and j
over high sloping plateaus of ranch J
land, where cattle and horses wander)
almost undisturbed; follow, at times, |
the winding, picturesque Columbia
River gliding through this paradise,
gleaming like a silver band, anil stay
awhile to gaze, enraptured, at the
exquisite loveliness of Lake Windermere, tbe queen of British Columbia
lakes, which lies in the centre of the
valley. Mile after mile you travel,
finding fresh beauties as you go;
eternally fascinated and thrilled
above all by tbe massive grandeur
and splendor of the snow-capped
mountains on either hnnd, rearing
their lofty peaks far into the clouds,
grim sentinels and guardians over
tbe marvellous beauty aud richness
of the country nestling at their feet.
As yet untapped by any rnilwuy,
the only means of transportation,
except by motor or carriage, is a
queer, flat-wheeled little steamboat,
which runs from Golden to Wllmer,
Tbe carriage road has been well kept
up, and last summer tbe writer was
one of a motor party which made
the eighty-mile stretch between these
two points in half n dny, without a
single mishap to mar the enjoyment
of the trip.
There can be but little doubt thnt
when the government makes the improved road, nnd the connection Is
established with the I'nclflc highway
and thc good eastern roads, the attraction of the boundless stretehos of
the prairie provinces, tlie glorious
magnillconce of the mighty mountains
and of tbe variety beauties of the
forests, lakes nnd rivers of Hritish
Columbia, will make Cmmdn t.ne home

all scholars, because these verses are
not to be found in nny of the oldest

century or later, Moreover, we gave

addition. 1- il tru ■ thut whoever be>

to do with twisting the th
delivered   to  the  lainta,
inst une-'. the   closing   words of   the
Lord's Prayer:
"Thine is the Kingdom and Power
and Glory."
These words, if uttered by mir
Lord, should be found In the old
Greek MSS, But Ihey are not found
therein. They are, ther?f ire, to be
rejected as additions mn le by people
centuries after Matthew's Gospel wa*
written. These words were Intre
duced when the fnith of the Church
respecting the Kingdom of Messiah
wn.s changed or changing from what
it was originally. All throueh th*/
New Testament the Second Coming
ol Christ in power und glory to estab*
llsh His Kingdom and tn glorify th"
Church, His Bride, Is set for the -nd
of this Gospel Age. Mut ns the tim"
grew, long a change of sentiment cume
into the Church. It became popular
nrul rich. Its bishops were respected
Finally the theory prevailed that Gotl
did not intend to delay the establish*
ment of the Kingdom until the Sec*
ond Coming nf Christ, hut did intend
to establish it in tho hands of the
Church during this Age and to use
the Church fur the conquering of tin-
world and the fulfilling of all tl."
promises ot the past.
In line with tlii- the most Important bishop of tlie time   was  recognised as Divinely appointed h
sent Christ In the world and t
over the nations in Hi-, stead i
briny   about   the   Millennium
Thia was  the  Bishop of Rome,
subsequently   was   styled   the
and  who claimed  and  wns accorded
the   honorable   title,   "Vicegerent of
tbe Son of God."    It. is sail that the
equivalent of tlii- title to thla ilay 'e
worn   by the   Pope   on his   tiara or
three-crowned hat -Viearius Del Filii.
Thus the change came in thn gen*
eral sentiment of thc "Christian
world." Messiah's Kingdom was no
longer to be looked for as corning,
but was to bo recognized as hero.
The Pop", as Messiah's reigning
representative, was to be acknowledg
ed. All Kingdoms that were to horn
and obey Messiah were eommandf
to honor   mid   obey  the  Pope.    Tl

it  was  not considered  wrong  to de- |
Btroy those who rejected and opposed
the Papa) Kingdom and to give them
to the burning (lame.
The  Lord's  prayer  was  already  in I
the Scriptures,  and   was   known   to ]
many.    It could not   be   eliminated. '
But some zealous   person, fully   believing    that    (JikI's    Kingdom    had
come,  felt  justified  in amending the
prayer to correspond to what he supposed   were   tbe   facts.     Hence   the
prayer which boglns, "Thy  Kingdom
come,"   is made   to end   by saying,
"Thy Kingdom has come iu its glory
and power."
If Papacy Is the Kinpdom of Messiah, it is certainly not what the
Jews expected. It is certainly nut
what we expected. It is certainly not
what the masses of mankind had any
reason to expect, although it is bo
accepted by the majority ,,\ Christen
dom,
Although onr protesting forefathers
broke away from the Pop.' and denounced him as Anti-Christ and declared that he falsely sat In the place
of Christ without authority, they.
nevertheless, were Imbu id «ith the
same error. They did not think to
go back to the message of the Scripture- and to look for the Son of God
to set up Mi- Kingdom at His Second
Advent and then to bless Israel and
the world through His glorified
Church. Instead they held to the
Papal theory that God'B Kingdom
was set up and was conquering the
world, and thnt thus the Messianic
reign mentioned In tii" prophecy is
being fulfilled. They hold that Chri-t
him.-elf |i the Invisible Kin- but that
the Pope is not authorized to represent him. Hence this spurious ud
dition to the Word of (iM is as ac
ceptnble to Protestants as to C it tho-
lies; inde-d more so, if we may jud_"
by the fact ilmt the Catholic Bible
omits the spurious words, while the
Protestant   Bible quotes  them,
W- b-r- remark that according   tu
Messiah's Kingdom
is and whut Is not the Word
of God, the Bible, as It waa recognised
by the Apostolic Church and written
down iu th- original Creek manuscripts. Why any Christian minister
should assail mc because 1 endeavor
to tl" f..r the people what he has neglected to do I cannot understand. I
must leave it to the Lord to judgo
between us. 1 am informed that
hundred, of ministers went to the
Editors of the paper.- which publish
my sermons weekly and endeavored
tti hav- them discontinue their publications,
Uut th- Editors perceive that their
r-aders are no longer under the bondage of the "Dark Ages," but have
b-gun to think fir themselves, and
that many of them ar- hungering and
thirsting for the Truth respecting the
Bible—tno Christian's spiritual food
and drink. To the claim that man)
read my sermons instead ol _ Ing I
Church the answer is, that Pastor
Russell is preaching t-> the non*
church-going ten millions who are in
th- majority anil that it behooves tht
ministers to provide for their people
the spiritual food for which they arc
famishing, if they would uot lose
them all.
To the credit of such men as Lu
ther, Calvin. Knox, ZwingH, Wesley
and others living prior to our day we
must explain that they had no opportunity f.*r knowing of the spurious
passages of the Scriptures. They.
therefore, hav- no responsibility such
as devolves upon ministers of our
day who do, or should, know all about
these matters. We cannot on this
occasion mak- further investigation,
take out more of those dead flies;
but, th- Lord willing, at some future
time I John v, 7. 8, will have out-
attention. It is worthy of it. It bus
caused th- Ointment to stink and 1ms
confused the minds of many of God's
dear saints by the way in which the
error iu this case !•;_ been interwoven
witb the Truth.
My  hearers  should   bear distinctly
in mind that what 1 am here present*
ing is   not at all   in   line witti   the
presentations of  the   High-r Critics.
Their method is to read through the
Scriptures and judge of them by their
; own  keen    intellectual   powers,   and
thus to discriminate between   which
| were written by the Prophets credited, and which were additions.   Their
r    Higher   Criticism    claims    a    keener
' | scent   or    mental
ordinary    mortals
they know these things whether otl
ers can see it so or not.
I resent Higher Criticism and ar
cept the Word' of God iu full. I re-
ject nothing because of my own f.r
othor men's surmises, but merely go
by the facts. If the oldest Greek
MSS. do not contain certain passages
of Scripture, how could they get into
later MSS. except us spurious additions?
Nnr should I be considered as faultfinding with our Common Version ot
the Bible. While it is not without its
faults, it has so many excellent quuli-
ties and beautiful translations that I
prefer it to any other aud generally
use it. But I must not, I cannot, up
prove those imrtions of it which all
orthodox scholars admit to he spurious. We must, not handle the Word
of God deceitfully. If we do we must
expect darkness instead of light, confusion instead of harmony.
Just three centuries ago our English Common Version Bible was pub
lished. This year its Ter-Centenary
is cel-hrated. It is a grand book, h
lias done a grand work. The facl
that it is not perfect must net con
demn a work possessed of so main
glorious qualities. It was the r.-sult
of seven years' labor on the part of
forty-seven persons learned In th
languages and appointed by Kin.'

Instead of the Bishop's. The translation was. perhaps, the best that could
be made at the time.

received the call   from Rome   to   go j
to Ottawa.
His grace, though French on the
paternal side, is more English than
French, for it was at old Regiopolis
College, Kingston, that he was educated, and afterwards taught rhetoric.
He was horn on November 13, 1845, !
In the historic county of Glengarry. |
For the pnst forty-four years he lias
been a faithful priest of his Church,
and has served entirely in eastern
parishes. He was made Vicar-General
of the diocese of Kingston in 1891,
when at B rock vi lie. On August 27,
1898, the Papal hull appointing him
archbishop reached him. His con-
Bee rati on took place In ?-t. Mary's
Cathedral, Kingston, on October 18,
1-398, and the ceremony was perform-
ail by the Into Archbishop Duhamel,
whose place he now goes to fill.
Archbishop Gauthier has ruled thr)
archdiocese of Kingston wisely and
.veil, and he departs for the capital
not only wiih the regret of his own
people, but with that of the Protestant community, for during his twelve
years' residence iy spiritual head of
the Roman Catholic Church at Kingston it was ever his; ni.ii to promote
the Bpirit of unity among the creeds.

The discussions of the question of
votes for women which have taken
place in Toronto of late as a result of
the visit of Miss Sylvia Pankhurst
recalls a story of a retort once made
by Sir Wilfrid Laurier to a member
of a party uf ladies which waited upon him as a deputation, asking for
several things.
The main point was the necessity of
enacting a nti-cigarette legislation.
The members were well-posted W. C.
T. U. workers, and they presented
their arguments with force and ingenuity. But presently one of the ladies
strayed from her subject, in an attempt to bring tact as well as argument to bear an appeal to the Premier.
| "If you would only do this for us
and then give women votes, we would
be glad to do something for you," she
said.
"Ah," observed the Prime Minister,
with his courtly smile, "you nre a.
bad as the me", after all. Before you
will give anything, you want something for yourselves."

Taking out his fountain pen he

which was fatally apropos. "Facllls

daughter has always beeu fond of
mathematics. Even as a child she saw
mathematical problems iu her environment and experience very clear.y
One day at luncheon, when she was
six years uid, she was very quiet for
»um« time, and then she turned tb
her mother and said: "Mamma, Helen and Bertha" Cher older sisters)
"are only half-sisters lo Oue.-rt.T and
me. Now, if you should die, and papa
should marry again, and they should
have children, would their children
be any relation at all tu Helen and
Bertha?"
She knew that tlie death of one wife
had done away with one half of the relationship, and she wondered whether
the death of another wife would do
away with the other half relationship,
and leave no relationship whatever
between the first family and the third
family.
Her younger brother, then about
four years of age, was evidently not
considering tlie question from a

William Sora Middlebro.
After the votes were counted at the
last general elections, among the gains
to be found in the Conservative column was North Grey. The turnov r
in a riding which had gone consist mt-
ly Liberal by large majorities since
1696, wai due entirely to the good
campaign of William Sora Middlebro,
a barrister-at-law at Owen Sound
Since he entered Parliament Mr. Middlebro has forged his way rapidly to
the front and this session he was called upon by his leader and colleagues
to fill the position of Opposition whip
for Ontario. A forceful debater, with
the ability of thinking clearly and rapidly while on his feet, Mr. Middlebro
is easily a leader of the group of
younger Conservatives who came to
strengthen the old fighting line of Oppositionists at the last appeal to the
country. He has a head which closely resembles in its contour Unit on
which reposes the saucy black derby
of Sir Alan Aylesworth. Thc Aylesworth head, with its long bald stretch,
and massive forehead, is as familiar
to those who frequent the precincts
as the clock in the main tower. It
seems to be built in a series of layers.
But his fame does not rest on that
alone. The member for North Grey
is always in the thick of the fray, and
his oratorical repertoire contains
many a slashing uppercut.—The Mace

Art Critic's Wholehearted  Praise.
The early life of Mr, Frank Short,
A.R.A., president of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers, who has
heen elected an academician engraver, was spent at Stourbridge, End.,
where for some time he attended the
School of Art, but this was rather
with a view to attaining proficiency
in civil engineering. However, by
degrees, the desire for freedom of
line superseded his ambition to shin.)
at mechanical draughtsmanship.
Twenty-seven years ngo he entered
the National Art Training School and
the Westminster School of Art, where
he st ud led u nder Professor Ted
Brown, and two years later he became a full member of the Painters-
Etchers.
Then came his magnificent mezzotints of the late G. F. Watts's most
famous pictures, and his masterly
interpretations of the old English
school of wnter-colorists. Next came
his plates completing Turner's "Liber
Studiorum," which elicited from Rus.
kin the highest possible praises.
"You are doing all these things simply as well as they could be done,"
wrote the great art critic, "and I believe Turner haa got through Purgatory by this time and his first stage
in Paradise is at your elbow."
Fight Fire With Wine.
Even on the stage it would be difficult to match the scene in the hold
of the Wilson liner Hero. The Hero
left Dunkirk early last month with
three dock laborers under the battened down hatches. They had seen case
after case of champagne stowed away.
.'hey followed it, aud broke into *
case.
The Hero weighed anchor and closed
her hatches. But these poor men, ttp-
pliug gloriously in the hold, heeded
nothing. They drank on until drunken
sleep came upon them. When they
woke they were in darkness among
the creaking cargo. Shout as they
might no one would heed them.
Then one of them struck **, match,
a sulphur-spitting French Government
match, and a bale ot goods took lire
from the fallal head. They (ought for
their lives in the dark; but there must
souu have beeu light for thu struggle.
They wrenched open the wine-cases
and broke the buttles of the wine uf
luxury among the burning bales. And
so, lighting fire with champagne, half-
drunk and half-mad, they met the
smoke that choked them. Tlie Hero
put into Hull, reporting the main hold
ou (ire; and dowu iu the hold the
three dockers were found, dead,
among tlie broken glass uf champagne
bottles.
The Windmill  In War.

It la Now a Much Mora Artistic and
Humorous Proceeding.
"Ragging," having lost the greater
part uf its ancient ferucity, ha_, iu
modem days, beeu elevated to the
rank ot a tine art ou which auy
amount of ingenuity and inventiou
can be exercised. In the old day*,
says Thy Manchester Courier, nothing was easier than to punish au ob
jectiouable undergraduate hy spreading jam all over his hooks, wrecking
his pictures and crockery, and d_pus
itlng the fragments iu his b.-d. Some*
times after such a cour.e had been
pursued it was the custom to raise a
subscription tu offer contemptuuu*
payment for the damage done. Many
valuable planus and pieces uf furni
lure have been before uow chopped
into firewood for bonfires..
Unpopular persons have heen punished by the shaving off ul half their
moustache.-;, and frequently disiiked
undergraduates, especially teetotal'
Icrs, have been ducked in beer. Al
thcSQ iiu thud, are now things of the
pust. The modern "raggjr, as an
artist uf a high degree of ability ati.J
good nature, one may be g.ud t.
think, enters moro completely into
these yuuthful ebullitions of spirit
Some unhappy "fresher" may have
quite uue.iiiM-iiiu.--ly offended against
thc esprit de curps of his college, and
tbe second-year men, who s.ciu tu
constitute themselves the peculiar
avengers uf outraged college propriety
-presumably un account of their recent emergency from the "fresher'
j tage—decide that his rooms must be
"ragged." lt will be advisable for the
I rest) man in question, ii he gets wind
uf the proposal, tu "make him_t.ll
scarce" till execution has been put
in, iu cunscqueuco of llio judgment
passed.
Probably he will return to college
lo tind his rooms in a condition uf
hopeless, though amusing disorder.
Quite a brilliantly lugubrious effect
can be cumpaased in the lirst place
by turning all the pictures with their
faces to the wall. One unlucky man
found several thin slices of bread
and hut: t, carefully cut for afternoon
tea, stuck airily over the panes ol
his window. The bath is found neat
ly hanging on the wall. All photographs and small ornaments are us
ually discovered in a stack on the top
uf the bookcase, the whole surmounted by a lamp, whoso oil vessel has
been filled with water. The bed will,

Wine Jugs of Leather.
Ono does not usually think of leath
er as a material with which engravers
and sculptors could do effective work,
and yet hundreds of years ago nmaz
iug results were obtained by artists
who had the knowledge and the patience to achieve success. Collectors
who have devoted their time to searching for leather art work have been
richly rewarded in Spain.
The leather made at Cordova of dot-
and goat skins gave that city a repu
tation which has endured until to-day.
and thia pliable material was doubtless the means of enabling the Span
Ish leather workers to excel the crafts-
men in other lands.
During the sixteenth century, when
the Spanish manikin wine jugs were
made, the art was at its height. Often
these manikins were of an ironical political character or were satires on
leading ecclesiastical rulers.
These jugs were usually made of
thin wood, wax or cement and were
then covered with leather that had
been boiled to a pulp. The features
were then worked in as desired. The
leather was allowed to harden and
was stained black and polished. They
thus became objects of real beauty as
well as curiosities. Some of these
wine jugs resemble polished ebony.
Queer Coronation Gifts.
One of the most extraordinary gifts
made on the coronation day of Edward I. was that of 500 horses which
had been used by the royal princes
and othcr personages in the procession to Westminster Abbey. These
horses, all richly caparisoned and bar*
nessed just as they were, were let
loose into tbe very midst of the mob
after the banquet in Westminster
Hall that always succeeded a corona
tion in those days. The people in the
streets were permitted to catch the
animals, aud to him who caught a
horse it and its appointments belong*

Improvements In Ocean Travel,
When Charles Dickens went to
America he was stuffed into a miserable little cabin and bunk, as com.
fortable a.* Fal.taff in the buck basket,
and was bumped more unmercifully
than was Sancho when loaned in the
blanket. Then a water \oyage in the
ships of that day facing high gales
was an inconceivable horror, and
many a voyager tailing to join the
family group at Christmas never came

and moro luxurious on the whole than
any other form ot travel without exception—London Telegraph.
"*" Pewleos Churches.
There were no pews in the churches

MRS. ANNIE VAN VORST'S HEART
DISEA8E CURED BY DODD'S
KIDNEY PILLS
She found Quick Relief in the old
reliable Kidney remedy, and advises all her friends to use Dodd's
Kidney Pills.
St, Benedict, Bask. (Special).—Gladness has replaced the anxiety that
reigned in the household of Mrs. Annie Van Vorst of this place. For some
time past Mrs. Van Vorst has suffered
from Kidney Trouble nnd palpitation
of the heart, nnd feara were entertained of those terribly sudden fatalities that so frequently accompany affections of the heart. But relief from
both ailments was quickly found in
the old reliable remedy, Dodd's Kidney Pills. In an interview Mrs. Van
Vorst says:
"I had palpitation ol the heart nnd
my Kidneys were out of order. 1 took
one box of Dodd's Kidney Pills, and
found great relief. For a Kidney pill
Dodd's Kidney I'ills cannot be beat.
You mny publish what I say ns it
may be the means of benefitting
others who suffer with Kidney Trouble or Heart Disease."
Pure blood is the basis of all health
and you can't have pure blood unless
your Kidneys are in good working order. Dodd's Kidney Pills never fail
to put the Kidneys in perfect working
order.

Grasping at the Shadow
Many a man has frequently been
persuaded or tempted to withdraw
from a savings bank the hard earned
saving.-; which he has, perhaps, fur
years been laying aside to keep him
iu his old age, sometimes hy a friend
who applies to bim fur a temporary
lonii—"just fur a few weeks," the inducement tu part with his money being the offer uf a handsome bonus,
but more frequently is he the victim
of the silver tongued exponent of
some get-rich-quick scheme. Expert*
enee teaches, however, that ton often
does the borrower'fail in his probably
good intentions, and the lender loses
the amount [tint, and that in w times
out of a hundred dues the get-rich-
quick scheme fail tu materialize—in
grasping at the shadow we lose the
substance. The Canadian Governmenl
Annuities Act protects a man ngninsl
improvident acts aud injudicious investments—it safeguards him against
himself. Moneys paid into the Annuities fund cannot be alienated or
used for any other purpose, hut must
remain intact for the object for which
the payments have been made, other,
wise the end niiucd at would never,
as has been illustrated above, he attained, and old age would overtake us
unprovided fur its many trials and

Why Do cidrelLike Zam-Buk
A Chat with Mothers
"Whenever my children have any
.ore places, cuts, or skin troubles,
they ask for S5am-Buk. They can always depend upon it doing what is
needed."
So says Mrs. A. Alee, of 170 Chatham Street, Montreal.
A missionary, writing from the
l West Const of Afrien, says: "Ona
boy who was treated for a bad ease of
ulcer, came back recently and said,
'I like best that green medicine.'
The 'green medicine   was Zam-Buk."
Now why should children, nil the
world over, show such a marked preference for Znm-BukP
Children like Zam-Buk because, as
soon as applied to a burn, a cut, or a
sore, it stops the pain and then gradually, but surely, it heals. As soon
as the pain of a wound or sore is relieved a child can go on with its play
and leave Zam-Buk to finish off the
healing.
Mothers might look a little more
deeply into the action of Zam-Buk.
First, it is highly antiseptic. As soon
as applied it stops all danger of festering, blood-poisoning, and inflammation. Second, it is soothing. It
cools the wound or sore; allays the
irritation; stops the pain ami smarting. Then, thirdly, it stimulates the
cells, beneath the injured .>•"■*■ }°

DR. CHASE'S NERVE FOOD
Every man and every woman has
an individual idea of what constitutes
beauty.
Is beauty skin deep or does it depend on tlie glow which health alone
can give? Is it due to regularity of
feature or to the gracefulness and
elasticity which accompany health
and vigor?
To win beauty you must first gain
health. Rich, red blood is the secret.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Pood is successful
and popular because it forms rich,
red blood and in this woy gives gracefulness to every movement and a
healthlul, natural glow to the complexion.
Thin blood and weak nerver soon
give one a tired, worn cut appearance. Worry and anxiety show themselves in wrinkles and care lines. Dr.
