II was a lloshin child, or com se,
who said when somebody naked her
whul. sin considered umi tiers good
"Why, ynu see, (iod couldn't be
ivcrywhere, and .so lie just had to
make mothers."
Hut it lakes grace "to he a good

control. Prof. Swing once said lie
knew many mothers whose children
were well washed, well scolded, well
dressed, and well whipped, 'but few
whose children were Inspired and it
certainly takes grace to lead such a
lite before the children that trey
spall be inspired.
If you have good, healthy children,
fntl of animal spirits and frolicing
with fun and life, lie thankful for It
even if they do make more noise
sometimes than il seems possible to
hear; for llie weak and nervous child
is ten-Fob! more of a problem. There
are two general types of nervous
children, the aclive child always on
ihe go inquisitive, and acquisitive
hut delicate as the mimosa, leaf
shrinking hack into ilself at tlie first
repulse nr harsh word, and the pale,
quiet, affectionate child, thoughtful
responsive, reserved. The child of the
first type may he lhe embryo philanthropist or leader of criminals, inventor or social iconoclist, as his
training tends, while llie child of lhe
second type develops into lbe philosopher, lhc poet, ihe man of letlers,
nr ihc misanthrope, the recluse, tiie
anarchist, as tin* case may be. One
of the greatest mistakes iu training
a nervous child is t-o think that
strength can come through opposl
Won. Sued a child should he guitt
e,l. mil driven. If afraid lo sleep in
thc dark, il should not lie forced lo

days ago cn route for Alaska. Mo is
in charge of the coast and geodetic
survey which is to determine tho
exact point at wliich the lllsl meridian crosses the Yukon river. The
141st meridian is the boundary between Alaska and Canada-, hence the
importance of having it established
to tho utmost exactitude, Even the
personal equation, the heal of thc
body of thc observer, must be allowed for. In previous operations signals have been flashed from Ottawa
allowing the precise lime at which a
certain star passes the meridian and
when the same star passed ihc meridian at Ihe place of observation word
was flashed back to Ottawa, Allowance was also made for the time
it would take the operator to flash
the message, for lhe sliglilesl devla-
tionwould mean at least 500 or fifiO
(dot being placed on one side or

All a pessimist has to do in British Columbia, to become completely
cured of that dread disease, is to
travel over Br tish Columbia. A
visit, to North or Soutli East Kootenay, the Boundary, West Kootenay
ilie Similkameen, will show a
ml rv with resources unparalelled
Unequalled in all ol this great
Dominion. West Kootenay is rapidly developing, and times are better
ihere now than itcy have been for
years, and Nelson as tbe commercial
center and natural supply point
is ten times a better town than ever
before. Even the knockers in Nelson arc silenced by the prosperous
limes of lhe present.
And speaking ol Nelson, did you
know that it was a socialist town,
headed by that prince of socialists,
Mayor Gillette. But in characterizing' Nelson as a socialist town, it
does not follow that the majority ol
the residents are blind followers of
Comrade Hawthornthwaile and he-
lievers in his weak, fallacious and
senseless theories. On the contrary
the people oi Nelson are giving the
world a practical Illustration ol
modern day socialism, since they
have appropriated lo their own use
all public utilities, and are making a
success of Ihem. The city municipality owns the water works and the
electric light service, and have control of the street railway, and under
the management of Mayor Gillette,
who is giving Nelson "a business
man's administration, all of ' Ihese
public utilit es have lieen placed on a
business basis, But the hackneyed
phrase of Mr. Hawthornthwaite,
"the capitalistic classes," finds no
lodging place in the hearts of the
people here, as thai gentleman
would have it. The people of Nelson, through iis 20,mm club, are
looking for the capitalistic class lo
develop the marvelous resources of
ihal territory. There are fruit
lands to be developed, mines to he
developed, railways to he huilt,
business blocks to be constructed.
Industries lo he Introduced, and capital is whal is wanted hy the "wage
slaves" of West Kootenay. And
what is more, capital is coming,
aud with it opportunity for tho
laboring man wilh wages that makes
life in Eastern Canada look like a
hare existence by comparison,
And speaking of the doings ol the
boi rihle "capitalistic classes'" one
might remark Hint they are going
ahead spending hundreds oi thousands of dollars, yea, millions il vou
please, Imilding railroads, saw mills,
smellers, developing copper, gold,
lead and coal mines, making a vast
hive nl industry out of the resources
of this province, which is furnishing
work to a great army of men at
wages that is satisfactory to all
concerned. It is bhis kind of development that makes a country, it
makes homes, it mates a happy and
prosperous people. And wlien a
man like Hawthornthwaile, who
toils not, neither does he spin, goes
around the country preaching pes-;
simism and discontent, sowing the
seed of unrest and distrust, arraign-'
Ing employee against employer, it is
time for the laboring man of the
irovince to call a halt. Who is,
iawlhornthwaite and what has he
done? Where and when has he toiled by the sweat of his brow to pro-1
duce that whioh would make the
world richer and the multitudes |
better off? To-day, by his work,]
by his influence over certain classes, |
he is a menace to the peace and
prosperity of British Columbia,
The Boundary country is a wonderful section. God was good when
he laid   out    that   territory.    Talk

Phoenix is a marvel. .It is the

Thus Mr, ,T. II. Ilawihornlhwaite
in the course of a lenglhy anil impassioned exposition of revolutionary
socialism, addressed a crowded meeting in the Grand theater Sunday
At the level of practical politics the
speech was remarkable merely for the
violent contrast it revealed between
Mr. HawthornthwaHe's attitude to
the McBride administration a few
weeks ago, and his att it uric now t-hat
his tour in the upper country bas
taught him that an alliance formed
solely nn the ground of political ex-
pediencv and entirely at variance
with the principle he professes, j
while it might ptace him temporarily
in a position as gratifying lo him as
a was humiliating to his" associates
would be found lo haVc discredited
him in the constituencies. When Mr.
liawihorittbwaile spoke in Vancouver
some wicks since, it was as the
apologist of the McBride administration; Sunday nighl, on tlie contrary, he declared, with regard io
ihe Kaien island deal, that il Lands
uud Works Commissioner Green had
| been a member of the socialist administration, he would have had to
quit on 21 hours1 notice.
For the most part, however, it was
as the apostle of the revolutionary
socialism lhat Mr. Hawthornthwaite
orated. At    the close, a list    of
eighteen questions was. sent up by
Mr. Kane. It dealt in stinging detail w'ith the events of last session,
and Mr. Hawlhornthwaltc's peculiar
votes on popular questions. Mr.
1 lawHornIhwaile opined that the
writer was a lawyer, and Invited him
to stand up. The questioner seemed
lo have the slave taint well under

At six o'clock Kriday evening last
a bush lire which had started adjacent
to the east side of the town had
reached such proportions and approached so closely to houses across
the creek that a fire alarm was turn-
mi in. to which the hose company
quickly responded. A line of hose
was laid from the corner near W. F.
Curd's residence, and after an hour's
hud work the flames were got under
control and the fire confined to a
limited area, alter which a careful
watch was kept until the rain of
Sunday and Monday succeeded in ex-
tlnguishlng  the bui nine embers.
The origin of the fire is unknown,
but was undoubtedly caused by the
carelessness of some one in passing
the vicinity throwing a lighted match
or cigar into tbe dry t,r*ass 0r brush
along the road. Had there been an
easi wind blowing at the time there
is no estimating the amount "(
damage thai might have been done,
as at the time roe alarm was turned
in the fire was but a 1 T*Ie over J,tio
\ards from the residences in 'hat
part of the town.
With everything in 'he brush in
ihe dry and parched condition lhat it
was lasi week it is little less than
criminal for any person to grow careless in regard-, to the use of fire in
any shape, and it is only to'be regretted that some of tbe miscreants
responsible lor the numerous bush
lires cannot be secured aud punished
so severely that it would l>e a wtoie-
some lesson to others.

Prince Albert, Sask,, Aug. II.-
I Ai the last session nl parliament a
company nf Prince Allien capitalists
secured a charter for a railroad from
Prince Albert to Hudson Hay. This
road, will, it is expected, Ik- an assured fact within the next iwn
years. Steps are now la ing taken
in build about thirty miles of Mie
road ibis year. Tliis will be as fat
as SiiiiM'i-on take, where tbe Sturgeon
Lake Lumber company has its saw
mill. This company has bad in
leant the lumher intn Prince Albert
during Hie winter. The railroad
expects to handle ihis business ihis
fall. Lasl winler many carloads nf
lish were shipped from Prince Albert
io lb.' eastern market, These fish
were teamed from the northern lakes
an I ii is expeeled that a portion of
Ihis trade will also be secured. The
lumbei companies heie will also use
the railroad for logging as it will be
l cheaper ib.ni bringing them down   in

handle ibe railroad as a loeal undertaking, and will push tbe const it »■-
