Eleven   Reasons

Reciprocity Agreement
In  meeting the objections    to    the

< on national grounds,  the   advocates
; of  reciprocity  point  to  the  declarations of Sir John  A.  Macdonald    iu

In his speech during the reciprocity

the path of such reciprocity leads to
commercial union and that leads to

the parting of the ways.
Mr. Borden concluded with this notable peroation: "Two great races

wonderful sacrifices In planting their
homes in thia western wilderness. In

"The heaviest burdens have been
lifted. The greatest obstacles bave

energies of their fathers have been

trust the standard will not be thrown
aside aud the retreat sounded when
the battle is more than half won.
The self-denials, the sacrifices, the

Brief fur nil those whom she loved-
Btnce she hml rend hy the l:_bt of her
restored reason tbe shorthand reports
of tbe trial, ut which Itouletabllie appeared at tbe last moment like some
hero of u miracle-she had surrounded
the youngster with an affection little
less Hum maternal. She Interested
herself in everything which concerned
him. She begged for his confidence.
She wanted to know more about bim
than 1 knew nntl perhaps more even
than he knew himself. She had shown
an unobtrusive but strong curiosity in
regard to the mystery of bis birth, of
which all of us wore Ignorant aud ou
which the young man bad kept sileuee
with a sort of savage pride.
1 returned from the Lyons station
still pondering over the numerous
fantasies, the strange caprices of
Itouletabllie during the last two years.
But nothing that entered my mind
could have warned me of what had
happened or, still less, have explained
It to me. Where was Itouletabllie? 1
went to his rooms In the Boulevard
St. Michel, telling myself that If 1 did
not find him there 1 could at least
leave Mme. Darzac's letter. What
was my astonishment when I entered
the building to see my own servant
currying my bag. I asked him to tell
me what he was doing and why, nnd
he replied that he did not know-that
I must ask M. Itouletabllie.
The boy bad been, as ll turned out.
while 1 bad been seeking bim everywhere (except naturally in my own
bouse), In my apartments In the Hue
de Hlvoll. He had ordered my servant to tuke him to my rooms and bad
made the man till u valise with everything necessary for a trip of three or
four days, 'iheu he hud directed tlie
man to bring the bag In about uu hour
to the hotel In the "BouC Mich."
1 made oue butiud up (he stairs to
my friend's bedchamber, where 1
found him packing iu a tiny hand
satchel an assortment of toilet articles,
a change of linen and u nightshirt.
Until this task was ended I could obtain no satisfaction from Itouletabllie,
for In regard io the little affairs of everyday life he was extremely particular uud despite tlie modesty of his
means succeeded in living very well,
having a horror or everything which
could be called tmtieminti. Me Dually
deigned to announce to me Hint "we
were going to take our Master vacation" uud that since I had nothing to
do and the Epoch hud granted him n
three duys' holiday we couldn't do better thnn to go and lake a short rest at
the seaside. Hut my silence did uot
disturb Koulctubilly iu the least, aud,
taking my valise In one band, his
satchel In the other, he hustled me
dowu tho stairs and pushed me into a
hack which awaited us before the door
of the hotel. Half nn hour later we
found ourselves in a tlrst class carriage of the Northern rniiway, which
was carrying us toward .'repot by
way of Amiens. As we entered the
station be said:
"Why don't you give me the letter
that you have for ineV"
1 gazed at him in amazement. He
had guessed that Mine. Durzac would
be greatly grieved at not seeing turn
before ber departure und would write
to bim. He hnd been positively malicious,   i answered:
"Because you don't deserve It"
And I gave him a good scolding, to
which be iuterpused uo defense. He
did not even try to excuse himself,
and that mude me angrier (bun ever.
Finally 1 handed bim the letter. He
took It, looked at it uud inhaled Its
fragrance. As 1 sat looking ut bim
curiously be frowned, trying, as I
could see. to repress some strong feeling. His face betrayed the fact tbat
be was Buffering profoundly.
"WellV" i said. "Aren't you going
to read tbe letter?"
"No." be replied; "not here; when
we are yonder."
We arrived at Trepot in tbe blackest
night that I remember arier six hours
of an Interminable irtp aud in wretched weather. The wnul from tbe sea
chilled us to the hone nnd swept over
the deserted quay with weird sounds
of lamentation. I walked behind Itouletabllie. wtio made his way with difficulty In this damp obscurity. However, he appeared to know the place,
for we finally arrived at the door of a
queer Utile inn which remained open
during the early spring for (tie Usher-
men. Itouletabllie demuuded supper
and n tire, for we were lui If starved
and half frozen,
"Ah. now. tny friend," 1 snld when
we were settled afier a fashion, "will

coughed and turned toward the tire to
warm his hands again.
"Oh, yes," he answered; "I am going
to tell you. We have coino to look for

This phrase gave uie so much to
think about that I scarcely slept at all
that night.

Erskine replied that "such sn honor
would make death a pleasure." The

too are played out. Then comes the
pains in the hack, the headaches, the
attacks of constipation and indigestion.
The quickest and most certain way
to overcome this condition is by the
use of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
They act definitely aud directly on
the liver and kidneys, awaken them
to renewed energy in filtering poison?
from the bowels and remove the cause
of indigestion, backache and other
body pains.
You are not experimenting when
you use Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills. They are unique in their combined action on the liver and kidneys and for this reason stand without a rival as a means of purifying
the blood and cleansing the filtering
and digestive systems.

A Sample Sale.

fund sale for a club or tu raise monej

It's a sample sale. The sample may
be a bonk which some author has do
nated—a sample uf his or her literary
style- or It may bu a sample uf some
noted housewife's cooking, a cake or
some candy pickles, homemade wine
or preserves. A "sentiment" of an au-
tbur, together with his or ber autograph, may constitute another sample
nicely Inclosed In au envelope tied
With ribbon ur In a cover uf suede
leather, when it makes a specially
choice sample.
A sample of a friend's crochet work
or embroidery or hand sewing, such as
au apron or corset cover; a recipe fur
a salad or other edible originated by
a good professional cook, a small water color ur painting ln oil, a sample of
an artist's ability—any of these will
make an excellent feature at a sample
The samples which a manufacturer
or storekeeper gives away of a new article—tooth powder, stove polish, sewing silk or any of the numerous samples afloat Jn tho market—make fine
things fur the sample sale.

L.cnrded  the  Governor.
Capt. Dan Mnouuley. a Newf und*
hinder engaged many years in sealing, had an adventure at the Com-
mnnderofski seal rookeries some years
ago, which was as daring as it watt
cheeky. It was a dull April morning
when his schooner Beatrice—■she af*
forwards became tin* Duchess of Bed-
ford when used by tht- Mikkelsen
Arctic expedition ami was wrecked
in the Arctic—anchored ofl the senl
rookeries and the Russian guard of
the governor ami ten men did not
see the scaler in the fog.
There were twenty-four men on the
sealing schooner and flteen of them
landed witb rides and went direct to
tl).; little fort nenr the seal rookery.
Capt. Mncauley went in to see the
governor of the island, ami presented
his compliments. He told tlie Russian that he luel come to raid the
sealing ground. He informed tlie
governor tlmt ten men were no good
to drive out his twenty-four men, and
they might as well look at the mutter
in a proper light.
He had brought some whisky ashore
anyhow, in th ■ hope that the governor
might accept his hospitality. The
Russian sat down at one side of the
table, the scaler nt the other, while
his crew was engaged on the sealing
grounds clubbing and skinning the
valuable fur bearers, For several
days Capt. Mncauley remained on the
rookery loading his schooner with
pells.    Then he sailed away.

That policy already has driven American manufacturers across the Canadian borders, built vast plants with
American capital on Canadian soil,

Keep Capital at Home
"Thnt capital should be kept at

men to supply Canadian demand. We
should admit Cn nadian wood pulp

Canada's admitting agricultural implements , our engines, pumps and

Canada's freely admitting other American manufacturing products to

Why a Cat Arches Her Back.
Nature has taught the cut how to
make up fur small size and weakness
by pluck and ulmbleness. In the
presence of n dungerous animal the
cat arches her hack and elects her
tall. This increases her apparent size
nnd Is calculated to strike terror into
the heart uf the enemy. It Is curious
that the cat assumes nearly the sume
attitude when she comes luto the room
or Bees the family enter. Now, her
object is to attract atteutlon, and with
this end in view she rubs herself
against your legs or your chair and
purs. The similarity of the attitude
assumed under sucb extremely different circumstances ls explained by
supposing that apparent increase of
size is useful, either to inspire terror
or to attract friendly uotice.

j The Free Trade party of England!
hnve been exultantly declaring that
the Taft-Flelding reciprocity treaty
will make tariff reform and Imperial
preference impossible. Yet Sir Wil-
(rid Laurier say.4 he will, at this j
year's Imperial conference, attain sup-
port the Imperial preference program
which was supported hy the conference three years ago and Rix years!
ago, and from which the Imperial
Government dissented ou both occa-J
sinus. Sir Wilfrid has overlooked i
explaining how an Imperial prefer-;
ence would be possible with free trade
in grain between Canada and the
United States. Possibly the reason
is that it cannot he explained. Thc
British Free Trader and Jim Hill are
right. Reciprocity with America
and the British preference cannot exist simultaneously.

st ami point of the Province and dlstrlcl which Mr. Goodeve represents.
Hi' dealt some stinging blows to the
arguments recently advanced hy Dr.
ClaJ ke, the free trade Liberal from
Ked Deer, Mr. Clarke, for example,
based a tree-trade argument upon the
great commercial success of "The
Sunlight Soap Company." ThiB company has undoubtedly built up u
great business in free-trade-l§nglaud
and throughout tbe world. It has
established great branches including
a branch factory in Canada but as
Mr. Goodeve pointed out it was a
Canadian tarlfl winch compelled the
Company to erect a brunch factory
In Canada. Except for this tariff
the soap would be made in England
ami sold here. All the receipts of
the business except the money spent
on salesmanship would go from here
to England; as it is we have a Canadian factory employing Canadian
work-people keeping the money paid
by the Canadian public in Canada.
Mr. Goodeve read the strong resolution passed hy the Nelson fruitgrowers telegraphed to him for transmission to the Government on the
very day that thc reciprocity resolutions were presented to the House
ami commenting upon the same said:
"1 immediately had copies of this
resolution made and forwarded to
the parties mentioned, from whom I
received replies saying they had received it. Now, Sir, look for a moment at this remarkable situation.
These men, whose means of livelihood were absolutely threatened,
wired down to their representative,
as they had a right to do, asking me
to endeavor to protect their interests. And what was the result?
Why, ir I am to take the answer of
the leader of the Government to tbe
fruit-growers of Niagara district: 'it
is too late.' Did you ever hear of
such a thing, Mr. Chairman, at any
time of your life? I ask you if tbat
is a constitutional method of procedure. No one can be heard. Who
are the peoy>le of this country? They
are not the Government. As I said
before, the Government stands for
the whole people, it menus the people in tliis Democratic country of
outs nnd no two men, antl no set of
men, have any right to put the
country into this position. Having
forwarded their message to the gentlemen mentioned, I was forced to
write bnck tn them: "I am utterly
helpless in the situation." 1 appeal
to you, I appeal to anyone in this
House, if that is a Democratic form
ot Government."

The suggestion of our text is that

will   be   granted to  mankind   in    the
future.    God's saintly  people are expected   to develop  character  and   to
approve themselves to (iod as "over- j
comers" within a very brief space of
life.    And not only so, but they ore |
required  to  "walk  by  faith  and  not ;
by  sight."    Tbey  merely have God's j
Word   as   respects   His Justice and |
Love and  gracious  plans,  while,   in
the next Age, tbe world will have tbe
actuality instead ot the promise—the 1
world will walk by sight.   "The glory j
of   tbe Lord  shall   be revealed   and j
all lie-all shall see it together" (Isaiah |
vl. fi).
The   world  during   Messiah's reign I
will be privileged to walk in a high- j
way of holiness, from which all the j
stumbling stones will have been gath-
ered out.   But the overcomers of the j
Church class ure required tu walk in
the  narrow  way, steep, narrow, rugged,   and   beset  with   snares  of   the ;
Adversary     "For   we are  not  Ignor-
ant of   his snares"   (II.   Corinthians
ii, 11).
We are not to forget, however, that
these differences between the Church
and the world are fully offset by the
differences of reward. The over-
comers ot the Church are to be rewarded with glory, honor, immortality, "the divine nature," ami be joint
heirs in the Kingdom as members of
the great Messiah. The world is to
have no such change of nature from
human to spirit, but is to have the
earthly Eden. Truly God's ways ar-3
equal. True and righteous are Thy
w.-.ys, Lord God Almighty! (Hevela-
tion xv, .'), 4.)
The Church's teat takes place in the
present life. And in each member
thereof the matter of worthiness or
un worthiness of eternal life on the
spirit plane for all time is determined
at death. Not so with humanity in
general. As we have just seen, som"
may live for only a hundred years
and then he cut off in the Second
Death, tiecause found unworthy of
further opportunity, Others, by avail
lng themselves of the privileges and
rendering obedience to the laws ol
the Kingdom, may live to the very
; close of the thousand years, and be
found unworthy of eternal life. Still
others may so fully appreciate Divine
Wisdom, Justice, Love and Power
and may heroine bo obedient thereto
that God will be pleased to grant
them eternal life. Their days, their
lives, will be far more than the days
of a   tree.
The world of mankind, at the eon
elusion of Messiah's reign of righteousness, will have attained again the
1 perfection   originally    enjoyed     hy
t father Adam.   Like him tbey will be
in  Eden,  which then will be worldwide.    Those  perfect   human   being-

Dante   Gabriel   Rossetti,   the   poet

it should be a young elephant.
"But what on earth," said Browning, "will you do with an elephant if
I give him to you?"
"I will teach him to clean the windows," Rossetti answered. "Then
when some one pasees the house he
will, see the elephant cleaning the windows and will say, 'Who lives in that
house?' And people will tell him, 'Oh,
that's the painter called Rossetti,' An I
he will say, 'I think I should like to

sailors and some ricksha coolies, and
while executing his duty aa a policeman he was stubbed in no less than

Ono change significant of the times,
to which to a more or less extent \s
due tbe change in the tone of tht
sport, is the absence of whisky. In
tne fifties, and thereafter for forty
years, no curling game was complete
without a "guid old cutter of whisky"
—guid old rye. As the "skey" has
disappeared, so the boisterousneas has
faded away. However, the games, in
those times, were much more interesting to the spectator, and goodly
crowds gathered to sue the curlers
make merry. After every game throe
cheers wus given all round and a
tiger for good measure, lt wouldn't
hurt the game a whit to have this
feature reinstituted. It is iu keeping
with the spirit of the gome.
However, those were the good old
days, when the men worked for their

said before, Uie game is pretty well
indicative of tho trend of the times,
more scientific now, but not nearly
so physically strenuous.

us his political faith. He took part iu
many election contests, but sought no
political honors. When the Whitney
Government assumed power Mr. Eti-
glehart's prominence as a successful
business man and his Intimate knowledge of railway affairs marked him
out for preferment when the Tends-
kaming Commission was being reorganized. On his return from Europ.
in 1900 he was appointed to member*
ship on the commission, and wh.n
Mr. Cecil B. Smith resigned the chairmanship soon after, Mr. Kuglehart
was regarded as his logicul successor
for this important post.
The sulicnt characteristics of Mr.
Kuglehart are his simultaneous grasp
of the broadest aspect nnd the m st
minute detail of any subject, and his
unfailing courtesy and affability,
The visitor to the offices of the commission tinds its bend easy of access,
urbane of manner, debonair of person,
nnd unvaryingly genial and obliging.
It does not matter whether it be a

In the conduct ol the affairs of the
Temlskaming Railway Mr. Engk-
hurt has adopted what might be called the paternal, out lo say the patriarchal, method. The employes of
the road are mado to f -I that Ihey
are not only active partners, bul members of one big family.
In addition, Mr. Kuglehart keeps
close watch upon tho work of all employes, und tlie man whose monthly
report makes u good showing is li.
able to receive a personal letter of
commendation for excellent wo.-k
done, with a hint that the faith.ul
and efficient performance of duty will
not he forgotten,
Possessing abundant means of his
own, the $5,000 salary which he receives as chairman of the commission
is but a bagatelle to Mr. Kuglehart.
His pleasure lias never been in ac-
cumulating money, but in us'ng it
wisely. His services to the people of
Ontario are given freely, not for the
monetary return which he receives,
but far tbe pleasure he takes iu demonstrating the possibilities of success in Government ownership aud
operation of a great public utility.

Famous  British  Admiral.
Tells What Zam-Buk Did For Him.
Many famous persons huve testified
tu the great value of Zain-lluk, nnd
amongst the most recent is Admiral
Rodney M. Lloyd, Writing from Ilie
Royal Naval (,'lub, Portsmouth, England, Admiral Lloyd says:
"I huve found /.imidtuk most reliable for healing cuts and abrasions;
while for the relief of skin irritation
it is invaluable."
Another famous user of Ziim-Huk
is Mr. Frank Seudamore, the War
Correspondent, who supplied Oana
dian papers with their dispatches
during the Doer war, Mr. Seudamore
snys: "Some poisonous dye on my
underclothing came in contact with u
small ulcer on my leg nnd . blood
poisoning set in. Inflammation, pain
and swelling followed. My medical
man's treatment did not seem to do
any good, as ulcer after ulcer hroki
out, until my left leg from knee to
foot was one mass of sores. I had
scvititcoii deep ulcers at one time.
1 could not put my foot to the ground
ond was really in a pitiful state. A
friend advised Zam-Huk, und I np-
plied this herbal halm. It wns really
wonderful how it soothed the pain
nnd aching and gave me ense.
"I continued with it, leaving off nil
other treatment, nnd nt tbe end of n
week's treatment my leg wns not like
thc same. A few boxes of Zam-lluk
healed all the sores, nnd bit by hit
new, healthy skin covered the places
which hud been so deeply pitted and
scarred "by ulceration and blood poison. The limb is now perfectly healthy, and with no murks of the old
ulcers. For this splendid result 1
have only Znm-I.uk to thank."

The reason Dr. Williams' Plna Pllla
eure nervous disorders Is that they
restore weak, run-down nerves to
their proper state of tone. They net
both directly upon tho nerves and on
the blood supply. The highest modi-
cnl authorities have noted that nervous troubles generally attack poopl
who nre bloodless and that the nerves
are toned when the blood supply is
renewed. It Is tinn seen that Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills eure nervous

Mrs. J. 0. Adams, Norris Lake,
Man., says: "I am writing you at my
husband's request ta let you know
the great benefit Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills hnve been to him. lie Is a river
driver and therefore much exposed to
all kinds of weather and wetting. As
a result he hnd an attack of rheumatism, and then to add to his misery a
severe typo of neuralgia set in, locating on the left side of the face, nnd
causing him such terrible pain that
it would drive him almost wild. He
was treated by several doctors, and
finally went to Winnipeg, where tbey
blistered bis head and applied hot
plasters which really only added more
to his misery, and he returned home
till unetired. Iu this way he Buffered
for nearly six years, trying all sorts
of medicine, but never finding a cure.
One day while he was suffering I
went to u store tn get u liniment,
hut they did not have the kind 1
wanted, and the storekeeper asked
me what I wanted it for. I told him
about my husband and how he suffered, and he placed n box of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills on the counter
saying, "Take my advice, this is
what your husband should take." I
took the Pills home with me and my
husband started taking them. I am
not sure bow many boxes he took,
but ono thing is certain, they completely cured him, nnd he has never
since had a touch of those torturing
pnins, You can tell how much he
suffered when I say that the hair on
the side of his head in which the
pain was located turned quite gray.
It looks odd, but he says it. does
not matter since the pain is gone. I
believe he would not have been living
now had Dr. Williams' Pink Pills not
cured those terrible pnins, and you
mny be sure we gratefully recommend them to all our friends und all
suffering ones."

F. Curd, socondod by 1, Manning
was ns folluws.
"That this Board of Trade consider that tbe definition of persons dub-
Ject to pay a road tax under the bylaws of the City uf Cranbruuk is too
wide and confers the franchise upon
many persons who have no Interest
in thc dty, and that tho following
words in the present by-law, namely:
"'and being between tho ages of 21
nnd 60 years" be struck out, and
that the following bo inserted instead
thereof." "The owner or occupant
over the aire of 21 years, in bis or
tier own right, of a dwelling place,
who has boen actually a resident ou
such premises for three months Immediately prior to the time of hls'or
tier exercising any rights under this
Act, but shall not include or menu
any boarder ur lodger merely, or
such other change which in the opinion of the Council will limit the
franchise to property owners, tenants
and holders of trade licences who
have been carrying on business under
such licence three months previous
to being plncod on the voter's list."
Upon taking up the "lack of Information" statement; Mayor Hunt
staled that a representative of the

For the information of the readers
of the "Prospector," we publish tho
following extract, from tbe Municipal
Clauses Act:
Prior to 1905 the qualification of a
householders vote wits a tenancy of b
man occupying premises and paying
not. les:? than $60 per year rental.
The Legislature of 1905 altered that
•is follows:
By making the qualification of a
housobolder, that be lie a British
subject 21 years of age, tbat he has
resided In the Municipality since the
Ist ilay of January, and that he hns
paid $2 to the Municipality other
than taxes on property and water
rntos. Subsequently it wns altered
by adding "licence fees on dogs" so
that any person that pays $2 a yenr
to the city is entitled to a vote.
In connection with the above tt
must be remembered that a houso
holder, or ttie holder of a licence of
•ny kind is not entitled to a vote on
by-laws, debenture or otherwise, this
