StMary's Church Lawn
On Tuesday evening the ladies of
St. Mary's church gave a lawn social
which was a pronounced success.
The grounds adjoining the church
wete beautifully decorated with ever
greens, Chinese lanterns, electric
lights and bunting.
Tbe lawn was crowded with meu
and women, and presented n most
attractive appearance, and the various booths were well patronized.
The flower booth conducted by Miss
Drummond and.Mis* Wright did a]
great business, and their many choice
flowers and posies found many eager
In charge of the candy and ice
cream booth were Mrs. Henderson
and Miss E. Drummond, and a very:
thriving business was done.
Miss Bouchard in a very pretty
little booth dispensed lemonade and
sodas to a seemingly thirsty crowd.
Mrs. tlenest and Mrs. Mackie conducted a well lilted tish pond, where
every fisherman or ftsherwoman were
sure of catching something. There
were many patrons to tbe tish pond.
Miss Anette Urault, as a fortune
teller, had a neat little tent which attracted many of the young folks and;
many wtcrd and startling tales and
predictions relating to matrimony,
best boys and girls, deaths, misfortunes, etc., were unfolded when a
small portion of silver crossed the
palm of the seeress.
During the evening thc city band,
under the direction of Geo. Ingram,
discoursed sweet music to an attentive audience.

The Rightto Appeal
The Liberal press Is trying to;
show that the Opposition is responsible for the impending dissolution of
Parliament nnd general election. Under the clrcumstniices the Opposition!
may well be proud if it is responsible for aa appeal to tlle people.
Primarily the reason of the appeal
rents with the Dominion government,
Sir Wilfrid Laurier was returned to
power three years ago on certain issues. It is a well known principle of
constitutional government that un
great llacal or political change should
bo made without the people having
been consulted. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
negotiated reciprocity with the United States without any mandate from,
the people, and in the face of his own
declared promise that missions toi
Washington were forever at an end.
Tbe present government was returned
to office partly on Its own declaration that no further effort to obtain;
reciprocity with the United States
be undertaken by Canada.
In the face of all this, the govern-,
ment made a pact with its American
friends and then tried to force it
down tho throat of Parliament by the;
brute strength of Its majority. Mr.
Borden replied: "Give the poople a
chance tn say whether they want this,
or not. We do not holleve they want
it, and we claim on behalf of the
public the right to lie heard before it
is decided."
This plea Hir Wilfrid Laurier refused and on this Issue the light has
ao far beon made. Mr. Uorden and
the opposition stand t..»*iiy for the
public, for the right of public appeal
for the torce of public opinion. The
Government stands for the polley of
coercion.—Calgaey Herald.

One of the most successful and
pleasant events ever participated in
by Cranhrook folk took olace an
Saturday, July 22nd, when, under the
auspices of a committee representatives of every department of the (J.
P. R. here, an excursion was run to
Marysville for an all day Open basket picnic.
Thc morning of the 22nd broke very
dull and threatening, and when rain
began to fall soon after 7 o'clock, it
looked as if the one thing thnt the
committee could not guarantee, was
going to bfi tbe factor to spoil all the
rest of their excellent arrangements.
Fortunately, however, nothing
worse than a light shower fell, and
it was a bright and warm sun that
shone on the holiday crowd that had
assembled on the depot for tbe llrst
special train scheduled to leav* at
8.30 a. m.
It was about 10 o'clock when the
tirst contingent arrived at Marysville. Owing to the kindly thought
of Marysville people, conveyances
were In attendance at the station to
take the ladies and children to thc
picnic grounds which were very
pleasantly situated on high and level
land commanding an excellent view
of the surrounding couutry.
Hery soon after arrival the sports
committee had the llrst event of their
long programme in full swing—A
baseball match between the Mechanical and Traffic departments of the
C. P. R. A good fast game result-
iug in a win for the shop team.
At a quarter afc'tcr oue the second
aud larger party had arrived from
Cranbrook, and with these on the
grounds, the crowd must have totalled over 400 people, tbe larger proportion of whom immediately distributed themselves into lunch parties.
It must have been a very hasty
lunch for many people though, for
with an unusually long and interesting programme to carry through, the
Sports Committee very wisely decided to commence immediately, and
tbe list of events opened with four
races for juniors.
From tben on the fun and excitement never flagged all through the
long afternoon, while several really
creditable athletic feats were achieved, sometimes in unexpected ijuarters
too, so that from the onlookers point
Oi view, there was plenty of variety
in every way.
All the usual fun ensued when the
four legged race came to be decided,
a team in which our two Y, M. 0.
A. secretaries were partners came tn
llrst in tine style, in the llrst beat,
hut failed to repeat their performance
in the final tie.
In the ladies' potato and spoon
race, Miss Millard arrived at the tape
cool, easy and smiling iu the     llrst
heat with no competitor within dan-
ger distance of her, but in the second
try, Miss Ada Hlekenbotham camo
home n vcry close second, so close
indeed, that her near proximity
would seem to Imve excited Miss Millard's self possession sufficiently to
drop the potato, though fortunately

retaining thc llrst place, Six worried

left on the return journey with
threaded needles, the partners of the
othcr three having '.ailed to pass tho
crucial test. There might hnvo been
a fourth, hut the man who shall he
nameless, after having actually successfully negotiated tlie thread
through the tiny hole, become so excited at his performance that he pul-j
ted it out again.
Another intcrestltlg event was the
hop, step and jump competition in
which several line distances were
leapt, the record going to Sam, of
Mission, whose agility wns more than
a match for any  white man present.
It was MS p. m. when Ilie Dual
event came on for decision, this being
a tug of wnr between lhe shops and

Mme. Edith trembled for (Jul Hob anu
for berselt
And the Incriminating fuel remained
tbnt there bud been nothing miywhere
around the corpse of Hern Inr but the
■tone knife which Old Hob bud stolen!
She lead the certainty of mis conviction In Hie eyes nnd in tbe manner
of Rouletabllle and of Uarr-ae tsui
she understood us soon us ttie young
mun began speaking thnt be seemed
to hnve no other end In view than to
sure Old Hob from (tic suspicions ot
tbe authorities.
Rouletabllle In giving hi? evidence
proved with a logical accuracy mat
overwhelmed tbe examining magistrate und plunged (tie deiegato into
despulr tbnt Ibe deed could only tune
been committed by the dead iiuid
himself. The four persons at the
postern gale nml the two persons in
Old Hob's room hnd each been looting at the others and tind uot lost
Bight of each oilier while some one
wus killing Bernier a few steps away.
bo It was Impossible io believe thut
tbe killing could have been done by
any other Hutu tbe victim.
To this the esn filing magistrate,
greatly interested, replied by Inquiring whether any of us bud renson to
suspect nny motive for suicide oil the
part of Herider, to which Rouletublllf
answered that tbe supposition of suicide might easily be laid aside and
that of accident substituted for It.
The stone, which might have attracted his attention by its strange form,
might have been picked up by t'ere
Herider. and If be bad happened lo
slip und full while holding It In his
hand everything would be explained,
and very simply. Here Hernler undoubtedly must, have thus unfortunately fallen upon this triangular tlmt,
which had pierced Ids heart.
Oue of (he physicians summoned tr
care for Old Hob wus railed, and In
decided that Hernlur's fatal wound
was caused by lbe Hint.
As to Mine. Edith and myself, nfter
Home futile and useless questions, asked while the doctors were ut the bed-
wide of Old Hub, we were allowed to
leuve (he room, and we went to sit In
the little parlor just outside lhe bedroom and were there when the magistrates were ready to depart.
Kdlth suddenly seized me by the
hand and cried out:
"Oo Dot leuve me! I beg of you
don't leave me! I have only you left.
I do not know where Prince Oalltch
is—I do not know anything ubout my
husband. That Is what makes this so
horrible. Arthur sent me u message
uuylng tbut be was going iu search of
Tulllo. lie does not know even yet
thut Bernier bus been murdered, iius
be found tbe 'hangman of the sen?'
Is It from this mau—from Tulllo now
that I expect tbe truth! And not a
word has come!    it is horrible!"
As slit* took my bund so cnnlldiugly

I felt that I wus for Mme. Kdlth witb
ull my heart and soul, ami i assured
ber that she Dllgbl rely upon my devotion.
Houletabllle never failed to cast a
glume In our direct loo every time be
bad tlie opportunity.
"Ah. he is watching us!" exclaimed
Mine. Edith.
"You ought tn be grateful tn Rouletabllle," i ventured to remind tier,
"fur Ills Intervention and his silence
relative to the 'oldest knife known to
tbe human race.' if tin- officers bad
learned thai this stone dagger belonged to your uncle Hob. what could
huve hindered them from placing him
under arrest?"
"Oh!" she cried bitterly "Tour
friend bas ns muny good reasons to
keep  silence  as   I   have,   uml   I   dread
only one thing, M. Suluelnir—I dread
ouly one thing."
"And whut Is Ibat.*"

turning her beautiful eyes run upon

"I am ready."
"AgllltiSt your friend even?"
"If   it   should   be   necessary,"   I   un

across my forehead.
"Very well; I believe you," she answered. "In (hat case I will leuve

"Charles Reade, a genius certainly,
never could uei tbat genius into any
organic condition. Charlotte Bronte,
a geniuB likewise, had too short and
crumped an existence, too narrow an
experience, too little critical faculty,
and perhaps a temper none too genial.
"George Eliot bound hersell to the
school* and the systems till *he became Httl« more than a mere eyeless grinder at the mill with scientific slaves.
"And the late Geonze Meredith,

, H. G. Wells Owes His Literary Start
to a  Broken  Blood  Vtsset.
In view of the criticism* aimed nt
I him  because   of   bis    recent    books.
"Ann Veronica" and "Tbe New Mac
hiuvelli,"   H. G.  Wells   has   written
what  might be called a defence, but
which is  in fact  more of an attack
I on his critics and on life.    He tells
, in his own way of bis emergence from
the   teaching   profession   into   litera.
"Then I tolled for years to Income
j eitber u  biological   investigator or  a
i teacher.   I set my face sternly npainst
', tbe sort of work T do now, and which
I even tben attracted me most, because
j I thought it a mure unprofitable indulgence of the mind.    I  hammered
j at tbe doors of bchco] and laboratory
i for a chance—for half a chance—for
i ju-d a little bit of a chance to give
j my  life to  these  things,    t did  not
I understand  thai   both   these   worlds
are  ruled  by  academic  cliques; that
I should have entered either only to
live n life of embittered obscurity.   I
should have spent my days in hampered,   suppressed,   or   unrecognized
researches, and in attempts to ventilate   highly    specialized   grievances,
Jived, indeed,   like   a mnn   swearing
with his head in a hag.   But my good
luck in its usual disguise of misfortune  intervened,  and one  day  as  1
ran down Villiers street with a hag
of rock specimens I had been show
ing to a class of candidates for the
London Bachelor of Science degree, I
coughed   and   broke   a   blood-vessel.
Thereby I was stretched out, it seemed, a broken and ruined and almost
penniless young man, and as 1 could
do nothing   else I wrote,   and   in a
year found myself free to live any
where and write ai I liked, twice as
prosperous as I had ever been in my

The Tafl.Hattad Highlander.
Field Marshal Sir Evelyn Wood,
V.C., wbo bus recently formally us-
sumed his new position as Constable
of the Tower ol London, surely holds
the record fur versatility among distinguished army officers, having served und fought in the navy, Light lira-
goons, Lancers, Irregular Horse, and
Highlander-, in addition tu which he
joined tbu Middle Temple and was
culled to the Bur in 1874, and is tbe
author ol wurks renowned for their
high literary distinction. A good story
muy ba told of bin attachment tu a
regiment of Highlanders, when the
latter were stationed at Portsmouth.
Sir Evelyn, then a captain, one day
returned from London, and with great
hurry proceeded to array himself for
parude. When he last emerged, he
observed that his men were evidently
at great pains tu conceal their laughter, and he quietly questioned his
subaltern as tu the probable reason.
"Well, sir," replied the latter, "you
are dressed correctly as to kilt, sporran, and all tbe rest of it; but you
have forgotten tu remove your tall
hat I"

they didn't stop. Silar didn't fir"-

held up uie dynamite ready to throw,
and Silas never took his finger off

wus covering. But The Pup wua drifting off, and when she was at a bit ;

The Real "Buffalo."
Most towns are like other towns—«s
a rule. Wainwright, Alberta, breaks
the rule. Wainwright is just aa much
unlike any town in America as could
be. She has a park. So bas New
York, Central Park; Toronto, High
Park. But because Wainwright bus a
park she is different.
Waiiiwright's park is tbe whole
town. That explains partly why she
is different. Who would think of naming Toronto or New Ycrk Paradisos?
Waiuwright is Puradisos. Wainwright, tlie park, ia different from
Central Park or High Park. It's bigger. Wainwright is 11,000 acres sur-
rounded by a wire fence 25 miles
long, which cost $1,000 a mile to put
And Wainwright has over a thousand of the rarest animals ou the
globe—over a thousand buffalo.
Really tbat is why Wainwright,
Alberta, in different—the buffalo. The
Albcrtan never mouths Wainwright,
he speaks of "Buffalo Park."

Dr. Johnson's Cudgel.
The reign of George II. was a great
fighting time. Kvery man who went
abroad knew that he might have to
fight to defend himself against footpad or bully. Most men carried a
stout stick. When Dr. Johnson heard
thut a man had threatened to horsewhip him he ordered a thick cudgel
and was easy in his mind. There
were no police, and therefore a man
had to tight. It cannot he doubted
that the martial spirit of the country,
which was extraordinary, was greatlf
sustained by the practice :if fighting,
which prevailed alike in all ranks.
The English  Regular.
I/ird Roberts has given out the impression that the English soldier it

The Second Infantry Brigade Is one
of the commands which hns attained
the highest proficiency. They marched out of Blackdown early one morning and made a 40-mile tramp to Aldershot. pitched their tents and in one
hour after arriving had settled down

are looklug to their millinery laurels

The millinery course at this Institution Is Immensely popular for two reasons—tlrst, because it is prai tleal uud
meets everyday requirements nnd, second, on account of the charming personality of the instructor, Mrs. Evelyn
Tobey, who Is a Barnard graduate.
The course, by the way. counts for as
much as any of the elective studies lu
the college curriculum,
lu the workroom there Is nn air of
suppressed enthusiasm, tin atmospheric feeling of everybody trying to do
her best, anil the ideal held up by Mrs.
Tobey Is .1 high one.

I   The Canadian  Reciprocity  Bill  has
assed the United States Senate
without amendment, by a vote of 53
for and 27 against.
Thirty-two uf those voting for the
reciprocity agreement were Democrats
"free traders" whu. if absolute free
trade hud been the issue wuuld have
voted iu tin- affirmative. President
Taft tried hard to net the Republicans lined up witli him, but failed
Btrlklngly. It thus became perfectly
apparent tiiat President Taft Mini the
Democratic party passed the bill,
It is the iloBire of Preeldenl Taft to
bring all Canada as a preserve to the
United states. Ho wants tliis country o( ours, with its untitled room
for scores of millions ol Inhabitants,
with Its Immenso Btore nnd diversity
of raw material as a hinterland to be
exploited by citizens of the great republic
The reciprocity pad is the small
part ol the entering wedge for absolute free trade between the two
countries Tho Liberals of Canada
win, were elected on a platform of
free trade as it was In England, whu
however, have never dared to Introduce any resolution to this otloct in
the House uf Commons, all bull the

United Htntoi nlocLlon the battle cry

it  w 11 ISGli that Canada, to use
a phrase thai Presldonl Tafl has
made familial was al tho parting of
the wnyH, when the Elgin Roclprocl
tv treaty of 1853 hnd pud terinin.it.
ed. the motive being to bring pies
sure upon tho people of Canada in
favor of continental union.
The great Canadians whu brought
ahuut the confederation of tho North-
American provinces, brought their
labors ta n successful conclusion the
year in which thc reciprocity treaty
neighbors are now making another
attempt to bring Canada within their
sphere of influence, and Sir Wilfrid
Laurior's government is falling in
with their plans. The premier cannot ,be expected to have auy great
sympathy with the men who repulsed
an advance movement of the annexationists on the eve it Confederation.
Much ado is heing made about an
arrangement, to enable, us they put
it. the two countries to increase their
commerce with each other. They
keep saying that the reciprocity pact
will  enable  Canada to sell  more   to
, the United States. But these economists need to be told that there are
some things Canada does not want
to sell, For example, it does not
want, or desire to bargain away its
fiscal independence. Also it will refuse to put a price on its national
honor. Its British connection, too, it
prizes above money or anything our
neighbors    can    give   in the    way of
(market advantage. Strange as it
may seem to tbe exponents of Laurier political economy. Canadians
do not include these things among
articles of exchange. They will not
barter their country or their place in
ithe Empire. They will not sell even
their home market or their domestic
■industries    for     anything the United
'states has to offer.
The Prince of Wales
nearing his mafority
The Prince of Wales has now entered into the first month of tbe last
year of his  majority.
Born at White Lodge, Richmond
Park, in 181)4, bis royal highness was
baptized there sonic three weeks
later, as Edward Albert Christian
(Jeorge Andrew Patrick David, thus
combining the names of his father,
grandfather, and his great-grandfather with those of the patron saints of
England. Scotland, Ireland and
Wales, on April, 1907, be passed tbe
qualifying examination for tbe royal
navy, and on .May in tiiat year he
entered Osborne college He completed his course of instruction there in
April 1909, and in tbe following
month entered  Hart mouth college.
On the accessiun of bis father, King
(Jeorge to tho throne on May fi last
year, tho young prince succeeded to
the Dukedom of Cornwall and to the
Scottish title of Duke of Rothesay,
Earl of Oarrlck, Huron of Renfrew,
Lord of the Isles, and Great Steward
of Scotland, uu Juno 'i'i he was crc-
1 a ted Prince of Wales and Earl of
Chester. On tho 'following day, he
and his brother, Prince Albert, were
■ confirmed in the private chapel of
j Windsor Castle, hy tbe Archbishop of
Canterbury, among tin* assistant clergy being Rev, II. D. Wright, by
whom the young princes bud been
prepared for tho ceremony. The investiture of tlie Prince as a Knight

These   ate   the   leading  events   lip   to
the presonl time in a life which bas
so fm neei'Hsnrily been one of prepar-
otion for the greal career which lies
before the Prince of Wales as heir to
the tli^iic. (ir his home life it, need
only be said that, under the care of
a devoted mother, he has grown up
a splendid example of the best type

Necessity for reorganization of the
system o( land surveys and classifications has long beeu recognized by the
government. The obviously desirable
changes require time for their con
summation necessarily, but a beginning has been made in tbe revision of
tbe instructions this season issued to
the surveyors taking tbe field, and in
the appointment of an inspector of
surveys, in thc person of W. S. Drew-
ry, at present engaged on a first official tour through the Kootenays.
Hereafter surveyors employed under
government auspices will be required
in so far as possible, to supplement
their field notes with a report on
forms prescribed by the department
of agriculture as to temperatures,
rainfall, soil characteristics, timber,
etc., which information will be tabulated and compiled in ready reference form for the convenience of land
seekers. The force of surveyors at
present engaged in field work (for the
provincial department of lands numbers some 32 parties, these being
widely distributed throughout the
awaking northern areas, and on the
outlying islands.

Canadian Northern must have a divisional point at or near Nokomis and as an abundant supply ol pure

at a cost of $12,-

one of tne finest iu the
province. It Is built of
brick, with stone trimmings on an ideal site,
commanding a good view
of the town and surrounding country. There are
four large, airy class
rooms, gymnasium and
recitation rooniB, principal's room and library.
The equipment is complete
and. in keeping with the

The future of Nokomis as an important railway centre Is assured by two Transcontinental railways—the Grand Trunk Paciflc and the Canadian Paciflc. Another Transcontinental, the Canadian Northern railway is to extend Its line through Nokomis. Five large implement warehouses, a Hour mill,
and the Imperial Oil Co. now use Nokomis as a distributing point. The lend taken by these institutions
is about to be followed by others of similar importance, aud in a short time it is expected that the
railway yards will he hedged in by warehouses and mercantile establishments, and will be active, not
only  with a huge national forwarding and traffic business, hut witb the hum of the local manufacturing
aud wholesale enterprises. As a distributing point Nokomis affords advantages which manufacturers and
jobbers will not overlook. It will command a large part of the jobbing trade lor a considerable distance up and down the main line of tbe Grand Trunk Pacific railway, and the two important branch
lines which will centre there. Its shipping facilities make it an especially advantageous location for
manufacturers.   It has been demonstrated that aii abundance of watcr for factory use is obtainable.

an address setting forth the Divine
Plan uf the Ages from the Bible
bland puint, 1 have been approached
afterward by Christian brethren who
said, "What you say. Pa. .r Russell,
i*s cheering, is God-like, is ju>t what
our hearts are hungering Sw and crying fur, bul—but I cannot accept it
because of the Lord's Word respecting the 'Rich Man and Lazarus,1 and
His description of their ta'-'S."
What 1 say to these privately never
reaches the ear.- oi others who have
tlie same query and the l • obatac u
to ine.'t, hence 1 take this as my topic
on this occasion, not only for the ben ■•
fit of thia uudience, but fur the benefit
of the larger audiences to whom I
speak weekly through the columns ol
Ilie press uf this land and Great Britain and Australia — numbering millions, All need to have this -tumbling
stone removed from their pathway,
and by God's grace we will remove it-
He will remove it, using our stammering lips for the purpose.
It is nut sufficient that I declare that
in tbe Scripture under consideration
the great Teacher was giving a parable, It is not sufficient ttiat 1 quote,
''Without a parable spake Hi- not unto
the people." Some dear, earnest children of God would object, saying, "It
reads, there was a certain Rich Man,
etc." 1 must, therefore, prove that it !
!.*> a parable and not a literal stal -meut
by showing that, considering it as a
literal statement, it would be untrue
aud absurd. Alter thus proving it to
be a parable 1 will discuss it as such
II il be a statement of literal tacts
then all the facta must be taken literally. This would mean that because
a certain man was rich and fared
bountifully every day and was clothed
in purple and line linen lie would gn tu
an eternity of torment, without a single charge being mude against him
along tho lines ol murder, ur injustice
or blasphemy, (or in the ac -uni nothing of the kind appears. Furthermore,
nothing i.s said of the poor man as being a godly man, a saint, but merely
that he was pour, full of .sores, which
the dogs licked; and lhat he ate the
offal from "The  Rich Man's" table.     :
If those be the grounds and cimdi- j
tions .Upon which any ol us have had i
hope Inr eternal bliss, surely a comparatively small numher could claim
it. Uni we ever have such experiences?
11 nut, what ground have we, according lo this leaching, lor a hope ul
re-chins Abraham's bosom? And, additionally, it the statement is a literal
one, Abraham and his bosom must be
considered literal also, and if only two
or three who were beggars like Lazarus were before us, what hope would
we have for room in Abraham's boa-
ow? But enough of this! We see
clearly that the statement is parabolic
aud we must look lor such an interpretation as will tit ail conditions. And
here it is!
Viewing the matter as a parable,
our difficulties all disappear as soon aa
we get ihe key. The great Teacher in
thia parable was criticising the leaders
of the Jewish nation and foretelling
their late. He Himself was an outcast, so were His disciples aud so
have all been since who have become
His followers, As He wai so are we
in this world."
"The Rich Man" ol the parable represented the Jewish nation. Tbe tine
linen he wore represented the typical
justification granted to thai nation under the Law Covenant mad'- with Israel at Mt. Sinai. "The Hich Man's"
purple raiment pictured the royalty
which belonged to Israel as God's
typical kingdom in the world Thus
we read, "'Solomon sat upon the
throns of the kingdom of lhe bord, in
tlte room (or stead) ol his fathei
David." Jesus recognized tin's kingdom dignity as still ^dunging to that
nation when He said. "The Kingdom
ahull be taken from you ai. 1 shall be
given to a nation bringing forth the
fruits thereof" (Matthew xxi, 4;J>.
The Rich Man's bountiful table
represented the glorious promises ol
God which were theirs primarily, and
granted to no other people until after
they had rejected Jesus and erueili.il
Him, St, Paul refer- to tins table in
thia way ami quotes David lln- Prophet saying, "Let their table become
a trap aud a snare and a recompense
so Ihem." This was because they did
not riglit!y appreciate tiieir glorious
promises and live up to the condition*]
which they required. The death ol

But the parable declares that Dives
Ma.- in torment! How could this be
seeing that the word hade- signifies
the death state, the un ouscious von-
dition? We answer that the Jewish
pei.pl1-1 have a double a?pect, In the
parable and out of it. Nationally,
they arc dead cr asleep, but a? a people :h"y are very much alive—no other people more so. It is as a people
that they haw been suffering the tor
tures of persecution during the past
e.ghteen centuries, while as a nation
they huve been dead, burie in hades,
and are awaiting a resurrection, ot
which the present Zionism is an ad
vance tok.*n. Soon Israel's persecutions will end. when M-^iah's glorious Kingdom shall take its power;
an. then will com.- their uut.unul re

let us now seek fnr -.mor Lazarus He
represented a God-fenring and God-
seeking claa3 outside the pale of of
ficiaJ Judaism -not all the Gentile.*,
but certnin one.- concerning whom
Jesus said. "I have not found sw
great faith, no, not in  Israel!"
The Jews were in the habit f
Bpenking ,(f the Gentiles as "dogs."
The grent Teacher Himsplf used this
expression (Mark vii. 25-; 10), Lay.n
rua had no fine linen garment gran*.*
ed to bim because lie was outside tin*
pal-1 of Israel, for whom alone the
typical sacrifices were offered. Lazarus had no purple robe for the same
reason—because tlui kingdom of
blessing, for the time, belonged exclusively to the seed of Abraham
Ttie dogs (other Gentiles) licked hn
sores, in tin- sense of considering the
Lazarus class upright and godly an I
iu some sense showing sympathy for
them. His euting of the crumbs that
fell from the children's table signifies that Jesili did, on a few occasions, allow some special blessings of
healing, which were for thc Jews, to
go to tliis worthy class of Gentiles.
Kor instance, the daughter of .lair-
us, raised from death, was a crumb
from the children's table to on-!
noble-minded Gentile who feared God
and who had built a synagogue for
the Jews. The healing of the centurion'.- servant was another crumb
from "The Rich Man's" table to one
of the Lazarus class. Healing the
daughter of the Syro-Pbcnician woman was another crumb from "Tin1
Bich Mau's" table to a member of
tne Lflzftrin e;oa*. in answer to npr
rpque?t Jesus ftli'wered. "It iJ not
proper to tak- the children's bread
and give it tn dogs"—Gentiles. Accepting the suggestion the woman
replied, "Yea, Lord, yet the dogs eat
of the crumb- which fall trom the

Military Musical Famlllea.
The honor of a dinner paid recently
to Mr. Dan Godfrey, conductor ol the
Bournemouth Municipal Orchestra, by
British musical composers, is a re*
miuder ol the Godfreys' remarkable
association with the Guards' bands.
From 1825 until 1880 the Coldstreams'
band was continuously controlled by a
Godfrey; tlrst by Charles, the founder
ol the family, and then by his sun
Fred; and lur some years all three
Foot GuardB* bands were conducted
by the three brothers—Fred, Charles,
and Dan.
The second of these then went to the
Royal Horse Guards, and Dan became
famous as the bandmaster of the Grenadiers, to which position he waa appointed, ou tne recommendation ot tue
Prince Cuusort, at the age of twenty-
five I He was the first British bandmaster to be commissioned, and some
some idea ot his world-wide celebrity
may be gained from the luct that the
King ol the Sandwich Islands conferred on him a "Royal Order," whilst
the Sultan ol Zaniibar presented him
with two massive gold bracelets.
Besides the Bournemouth conductor
honored, there is Mr. Herbert Godfrey, conductor ol the Crystal Palace
band. Only the Winterbottom family
can rival this record, four brothers,

that the same ore could be imported

were closed. And thereupon the village was abandoned, leaving streets of

In the pust year an effort has beeu
made to revive tha English game of
rugby football in the province of Quebec, and three strong teams have been
formed in Montreal playing the game
under the British Rugby Union rules.
The three clubs are McGill University, Montreal English Rug y Football
Club, and the Canadian Pacific Railway, E.R.F.C. In Ottawa the Royal
Naval College also hopes to take up
the game. English rugby football ii
further played to a gict exleut iu

British Columbia and Calilornia,
where it has in recent yeurs taken
the place of the American game.
While it Is not the wish of KngUsh
rugby clubs iu Canada to try and
make converts to the British game,
yet they feel that it is time that Canada, especially on account of her eloss
situation to Great Britain, be able to
put a fifteen iu the held under British rugby rules and capable uf holding its own against representative
teams of Greut Britain, lt auy of her
overseas dominions.
This would make one game of rugby
throughout the Empire and induce
British, us well us tlie teams of South
Africa, Australia, and New Zealand
to visit Cunudu.
Almost 500 first class clubs are members of tlie British Rugby Football
Union, and these clubs ure spread all
over the world, the head office of the
rugby buard being in Loudon, Eng-
The rules governing the British
game have chuugi'd considerably since
the game was lust played iu these
parts of Cunudu, now many year*) ugn,
and the g.tne us played to-ouy is, uo
doubt, tlie lastcst, exciting and most
spectacular guine of football in exist
There are lots of men In this country who know uud huve played the
grand uld game, aud muny will probably come forward uow aud help the
gume along in tlie Dominion,
An English International team will
probably visit Canada in ttie spring

Yorkshire's Strong Man.
George Hirst is oue of the greatest
of modern all-round cricketers. Re-
eentjy he took nine Worcester wickets
for forty-one runs and followed up
this bowling feat by scoring a century. Not a bad performance for u
mau in his fortieth year, who has
beeu playing first-class cricket fur
nearly twenty years. Hirst is one
of the most popular figures in the
cricketing world, and everyone was
delighted when, in 1904, he had a record benefit wWh brought him in
$17,600, part of which he invested in
a toffee factory, which is doing a big
business. An amusing incident occurred at Brania.il Lane gome time ago.

How Clouds Got Tholr Frlngti,
Prof. Tyndall used to explain to
popular audiences, with the aid of a
brilliant experiment, that the blue
color of the sky is owing to floating
particles of invisible dust that break
up and scatter the short waves, which
are the blue wuves, of light. Thia
occurs principally at a great elevation, where tne utmuspheric dust is
extremely fine, while in the luwer
regions of the hir, where the dust U
coarser, the scattering affects all the
rays, or colors, alike. The brilliant
fringes of couds, seen nearly iu the
direction of the sun, ure largely due
tu dust, which especially accumulates
in the neighborhood of clouds aud refracts the sunlight uround their edges.

0! weight of years und iu order to
prepare for deaih taking ip the work
which tiif apparently vigorous young
man was cut off by death from performing. The return of Ur. O'Connor,
even temporarily, into public life re-
minds tlie writer uf an iuteresting
episode connected with this saintly
und humble-minded man. 'Ine writer
wus told off to report Archbishop
O'Connor's sermon at th; blessing oi
the bells of Bt. Mary's Church, Both-
urst street, Torouto. Seated in me
fro..t pew immediately under tiie pui-
p.t, 1 was writing away, oblivious Ol
everything but getting down the ser*
mon, when sudden iy there wus a
breuk in the discourse, and as I looked up to see what was the mutter, the
Archbishop leaned over the pulpit
and said: "My friend, would you
kindly put away your notebook, lt
disturbs me." ut course, 1 put away
the notebook nud reported the rest of
tnc sermon from memory.
This reminds me of two other archbishops wait whom 1 had rattier interesting experiences. Tlie iir.it wus

assure you tlie old man's head is

work he wus tlieti doing, und did afterwards perform, many people were
reudy to agree that Archbishop Tochfl
wus uot sick in his head.
The other Instance was in connection with hia successor, Archbishop
Langevin. The Manitoba school question controversy wus then at its
he.ght, und tnc newspaper 1 was
working on was strongly opposed to
Separate schools, which Archbishop
Langevin was us strenuously supporting. When I called to see him he
suid jocularly; "l just received an account for your papet, this attemoon.

J. L. Cote, who represent Athabasca

Mr. Cote is enthusiastic concerning

u apeecu 111 tue Legislature, wlueh
included quotations from the opinions
of other civil engineers und from geological reports, na gave reasons lor
litis faith in tin* h.g riding's future.
lu thc conclusion of his speech he
became prophetic.
"Quite Hue," he said, "we cun slur
the north country hy saying that there
are muskegs. Mut swump loud is land
that needs drainage. In thc south of
Uie province the CP.lt. advertize today millions of acres of irrigated laud

only difference between these two

Agricultural     Labor   is   Not  Su    Well
Paid  in the   United States
In adopting Reciprocity with the
(init.-il Slates, Canada would entei
into nn unequal nnd unfair competition in farm labor, Senator Stone of
Missouri, spoke at Washington the
other dny on this phase of ilu- agreement, nnd showed tbnt farm labor
was cheaper in the States than in
Canada. The Rrooklyn Times] commenting on thi*. speech »s follows,
shows how foolish it would be for
the Canuck to fry to compete with
cheap Yankee labor:—
"It hns been generally assumed that
farm wages paid on the Americun
aMe of the Hue were higher than
those paid in Canada, and that therefore tlie ndvnntugci of tree entry for
Cnnndinn farm products conceded hy
the proposed reciprocal agreement
iiiennt n decided advantage to the
Cnnndinn fanner at tin- expense of
his American competitor. But, according to Senator Stone of Missouri,
who in his -pei'eh quoted liberally
from American official figures, the
boot is on the other leg. The Missouri Senator demons)rated that the
Canadian farmers really pay more
for their form labor than we pay on
the United States side of the line,
find that if anybody has cause to
fear disaster from reciprocity it is
tln.> Canadian and not the American,
It is the Canuck who has cause to
dread the competition <>f cheap Yankee labor, and not the bloated plutocrat of Americun fnriiis."

Creston Celebration
Committees are appointed to
arrange for Labor Day
There wae a thoroughly representative gathering of business men1
and citizens at the Mercantile hall,
on Tuesday last to discuss the ad-:
visability of holding another labor;
day celebration, and so splendidly!
wsb tt attended that it augurs well
for the forthcoming eventful day.
Promptly on time last years chair-
man called tbe meeting to order, and I
W. H. Crawford was again unanl-'
mously elected chairman, and Mr. S.|
A. Speers treasurer. Mr. J. J. Ath-j
erton, the secretary for Creston's
flrst annual celebration, was unanimously elected again.
The following committees were then
Transportation: R. M. Held and
J. B. Moran.
Advertising: R. 8. Uevau, R. M.
Reid, (i. B. Henderson, and R. T.
Collections: R. S. Hevan, G. M.
Gunn, R. T. WalmBley, W. Burton,
W. H. Crawford, J. B. Moran, 8. M.
Hatfield, W. B. Metcalfe, G. Bayle,
0. J. Wigen, G. and J. Huscroft, C.
O. Rodgers, Walter Hall, J. J.
Some discussion followed as to tbe
best site for the celebration. Some
of those present were in favor of
again holding it on the flats whilst
others were strongly In favor of the
new park grounds. Ultimately lt
was decided to appoint a committee
who will report at the next meeting
as to which site In tbeir opinion Is
the best.
The meeting adjourned at tbe call
of the chairman, The subscription
list was immediately opened and
$265 was guaranteed amongst those
present. Besides a cash donation,
Mr. Bevan presents two boxes of
apples for a bannock baking contest,
and Dr. G. B. Henderson besides
cash also presents a box of apples.
Tbe following day the transportation committee got busy, and communications by wire and mail were
sent to the Canadian Paciflc railway
with the object of securing a special
train from Cranbrook, and we understand this will be assured for a guarantee of {.205.00. J. B. Moran baa received notification from the Great
Northern railway that thoy will run
a special train from Bonner's Perry
for a guarantee of 1100, and he him.
self has guaranteed that amount.
Whilst no committee have yet beeu
appointed for conducting the various
events of the day, we are safe in
saying that Creston's 1911 celebration will far surpass all previous
events. An effort will be made to
secure a baseball game, either with
Cranbrook and Nelson, or Cranbrook
and Bonner'a Ferry, either of which
will prove an immense attraction.
Forest fires destroyed nearly.
1,400 acres of valuable timber owned
by A. E. Watts near Creston, early j
this week. A big crew of men from
Huscroft's camp were out several
dayB and nights fighting the flames,
and back firing, and tor Borne time
it waa thought the camp waB in danger.    The    cause   of the   fire Is un
known, but several persons are suspected of starting a Ure for clearing
purposes without the necessary permit.
The ferry across Kootenay river is now In commission again. Early thia spring the cable waa cut to
aave the ferry from a log Jamb, and
on Wednesday laat a crew of men
wore put to work by the provincial

the barge. At the pond where the
cable was cut it was clamped together again. This will not Interfere
with tbe progroaa of the barge, as

"Squaw Man"
was Enjoyed
Lethbridge theatre goers bad al- :
most given up hope of having the op- ]
portunity of seeing a melodrama that
is uot almost Impossible, and the
[airly large audience that turned out
tu see the "Squaw Man" played at <
the Majestic last night were very
much agreeably surprised to see a'
western play played in a really convincing western style. Of course to
western people the parts played in
that sort of melodrama always seem
tu be more or less overdone, but
with one or two exceptions the dif-;
ferent parts were splendidly taken,
and even we, who boast of being real
westerners must acknowledge the
"Squaw Mun" as played last night
to be a fairly cotroct intrepertation
of the real thing.
George Dill as Jim Carston, the;
"Squaw Man" really left nothing to'
be desired, and he hud thc sympathy!
of the audience 'trom the beginning.
Adieu Marshall, whuse sweet and
striking personality won all hearts,
managed by her superb acting to carry through a very difficult part,
which called for a considerable show
of heroics thut would ln most cases
have been very trying to the audience.
The smaller parts were each splendidly taken. Nat U Reech the Indian
girl was very realistic, and Tabywa-
nn the peace chief of the Utes, acted
the part of the Indian chief to the
The scenery and stage settings were
typically western without being overdrawn, and there wns just enough
flourishing of revolvers to give the
play the proper touch.
Taking everything into consideration I fancy it will be some time before the theatre-going public of L.eth-
brldge have the opportunity of seeing
an American drama that will give
as much pleasure and satisfaction as
tlie "Squaw Man" gnvc last night.
