Wilson,  The   Jeweler
Although the St. Eugene Consolidated Mining enmpany, owning the
wonderful St. Eugene mine at Moyie,
B. 0., made profits nl $11:\!I36.09 in
operating the property for the four
months ending September 3ft, yet the
lead bounties paid by the. Canadian
government, amounting to (91.061.11,
were the most important factor in
the profits, says ihe Spokesman-Review.
As the president, George Goorier-
ham, says in his annual report, "We
arc depending almost wholly upon
the bonus for our profit, and while
that will last for three years from
the 30th of June next, on the ore
smelted in Canada, tbe bonus on ore
exported will cease with the close of
the government's fiscal year."
It is a remarkable commentary on
the condition of lead mining in British Columbia when rhe St. Eugene,
which is admitImI to bo one of the
greatest mines in the North West, is
tJbliged lo look for government aid
to permit of its operating at a profit.
John A. Finch, of Spokane, is a director.
In his annual report .James C'ronin,
of Spokane, the manager, says :
" The strike made in June in a
rnisc from Ihe l,8»0 feet level, and al
a depth of about 1,01)0 feet horn the
surface, is proving ol substantial
value. About (be first of September
the * tunnel of Ihe 1,700 foot level
reached the oreshont of this strike
and was Continued In ore 150 feet,
the ore varying in width from '1 to 10
foot. The ore lu lace of tunnel shows
a width of live feet, and is ol a qual-
tily that will yield one ton of concentrates lo every two tons of ore.
So far there are no signs of weakn
cuing of the on- as the drift pi-ogres'
ses easterly.
" In running the east drift on the
1,900, or shaft level, the development
work there has heon going on very
satisfactorily. Since the first of May
this anft has been extended 280 feet,
and in all this distance only about
20 (cct of the drift showed the vein
that was of an unprofitable quality.
At present (October 28) the voln in
the face of the drift shows seven feet
of good concentrating ote.
" My last annual report, made
when the mine was operating, stated
that 46,000 tons of concentrates were
practically in sight; without giving
the details here, I find that there are
now about 43,000 tons in sight.
" From s topes and development
during five months of milling operations, the ore broken amounts to 58,-
45R tons, at a cost for breaking of
$1.00 a ton.   It has concentrated 4.7
toi.s   of crude pre into one of   concentrates."
The financial statement is :
12,786,860 lbs. concentrates,     net     value     from
smelter $130,053.24
Government bounty on 8,-
260,357 lbs. lead    62,127.04
Total   net value $193,181.18
Or About $30.00 per*\on.

Government   bounty    20,533.20
Total   net value $156,943.91
Or about $30.00 per ton.
" The milling capacity being reduced by rain places us in a very serious
condition about filling our contracts
in due time. The total of the contracts calls for 33,000 tons, and we
have until July 1, 1905, to complete
the total. The October production of
872 tons brings the total to date up
to 11,611 tons. Adding 1,500 tons
Tor November make 13,111 tons, leaving 18,889 tons to be made in the following seven months, or an average
of about 2,700 tons per month. I am
of the opinion that we will be able
to produce the required amount unless some other unforscen trouble occur^
The attendance ol tbe pupils of the
Cranbrook schools for the month   of
November is as follows:

One naturally looks for a display of
artistic taste in a modern jewelry
store, and one is not disappointed in
this respect when he goes into W, il.
Wilson's place of business. Although
a month ago Mr. Wilson had a very
attractive place, yet he was not satisfied, and since that time he has expended considerable money in papering, painting, adding new fixtures, until now his store is an ideal place for
the display of jewelry stock. And to
keep up that stride of progress that
has marked his career ever since he
came to Cranbrook, Mr. Wilson has
more than doubled his stock within
the last month. As a result, today
he has a magnificent collection of
jewelry, cut glass, silver and gold
ware, toilet articles, in fact everything that one would natura'lly cx-
ficct lo find in an up-to-date eslab-
ishment of that character. Not only
has he the goods, the quality, but he
has something more that is causing
considerable comment this year, and
that is prices that are proving extremely attractive to the people.
That is why his trade is advancing
by leaps and bounds. The people appreciate such conditions.

Quebec, Dec. 3.—The remarkable
fecundity of the French-Caua.li.ui imputation of the Province of Quebec is
Illustrated in official statistics in ihe
public offices of the Provincial Government here. It is shown, for instance, that up to the present time
no fewer than 3,437 applications
nave been made for the state reward
of free grants of land for fruitfiilucss
in the marriage state.
The rewards were provided for by
an, act, adopted by the Legislature of
Quebec some fifteen years ago, when
the late Mr. Mercier was Prime Minister of the Province.
As tbe law now stands, tbe Government of the province records a
grant of a hundred acres of land to
every father and mother of twelve or
more living children, and, as already
stated, more than 3,400 married
couples have already applied lor the
legislative prize.
The Fink Brothers, of the Fort
Steele Mercantile company, arc great
hustlers after business, and they arc
believers in the use of printer's ink.
For the past year they have been experimenting along this line in The
Herald, and with such satisfactory
results that to them it is no longer
an experiment. When they have anything special to say they say it in
The Herald, because they know the
people will read it. This week they
make an announcement that will prove
interesting reading to the people.
They take the first half ot the front
page to do it. because they believe in
doing the thing right. And by the
way, they have the greatest stock of
Clunaware that one cares to see. It
is worth one's while to gaze upon
the beauties they have displayed.
Have you seen the special spoon
sold hy Tate, with the Crows Nest
stamp, He has them for all towns in
the district, and there is not a nicer
present to be found.

The Liberals ol British Columbia
met at Victoria last Friday and gave
Senator Templeton a banquet in rcc
ognition „f his services in tlie rrcrn
The authorities are still alter the
hallut-box criminals in Ontario. More
power to tl.eir arm. The Herald
hopes that they will not cease lu
theii ellurts until every man guilty
ol monkeying with the ballot box Is
landed behind the bars. That is tin-
only place lul such reprobates.
Any party that lavors the granting
ol a land subsidy to the Ota id

ish Columbia will die oo the vote
that is taken to settle the question
Tho people ol this province will not

road. Tho Liberal or the Conservative- who advocates such a move
lounds his own death knell. The land
that Is left must be held lor tlie people. Tliere are some reservations
now that must come oB. The people
have a lew rights, and what Is more,
they propose that they shall be respected. No more land gills la British Columbia.  Wc have had enough.
A couple ol weeks ago the editor
ol the Medicine Hat Times called
The Herald's attention to the lact
that Cranbrook was not the only
banana belt on earth, and spoke
many words ol praise of tho climate
ul the Medicine Hat brand. Last
Thursday the weather report said
that the thcrniumetor marked 20 degrees below in the Hat, while here In
Cranbrook it was 05 degrees above
and the men were it. their shirt
sleeves and the ladles wero wearing
summer dresses. No, no, Irlend Harris, thcro may be a lew imitation
banana belts, but there is only one
genuine article, and that Is found in
" Buy Irom tho Fellow Nearest
Home." That is a good slogan, and
one that The Herald firmly believes
in. The shorter the distance your
money goes the more likely it is to
come back. That is the way many
communities are built up. We can't
expect to have people follow out this
plan unless we do llie same. II a
man owns property in Cranbrook the
growth ol the town is lar more important than to save a lew cents on
the puicbaso of itomcthiiig down east.
The way to make a towa grow is to
all stand together. The property becomes moro valuable, and the man
who owns property is better oil. .So
let us buy Irom tbe fellow nearest
Our old friend, Fred Foritel, editor
ol the Medicine Hat News, has been
aiked to become a candidate tor
mayor ol that prosperous city. For
the past lour years he has sat as a
member ol the council, and during
thai time has made an enviable record lor himscll as a municipal legislator. And lor the past tea years or
mora he has edited The News, and
week after week he has labored lor
Ihe best Interests ol the whole com-
munlty. We would be willing to
wager that there Is hardly a man
who has lived in that towu lor a
year or more who is not under obligations to Mr, Forster lot some .ci
that would assist in some way. We
know that Forster Is competent, we
know that he is honest, we know
that he is progressive, we know that
he is loyal, and il we had tbe say
about that election, we would simply
make it unanimous for Forster, and
(eel satisfied that the town would
have a first-class mayor.
A report irom Ottawa says : It is
about a year now since the poll tax
on Chinese entering Canada was increased to five hundred dollars, but
so far not a single Celestial has paid
the price. The C. P. R. has paid the
entry lee for two Chinese who were
being carried through the country in
bond and escaped from tho railwav
company's custody. This should
make good reading to every white
man in Canada.
The death ol the muck parliament
Is due to the indlflcreuee ot a lew.
In this way an institution lull ol
promise has met an undeserved fat*.
Man has his strength and the ei-
etcln of bis power ; be is busy,
goes about, oeeupies bis attention,
thinks, looks forward to the future,
and finds consolation in it ; but
woman stays at home, remaius face
to face with her sorrow, from which
nothing distracts her ; she descends
to the very depths of the abyss it
has opened, measures it, and often
nils it with her vows and tears. To
feel, to love, to suffer, tn devote
herself, will alwayd be the text of
the life of woman, Man has a precise
and distinct language, the world being luminous speech. Woman possesses a peculiarly musical and magical
language, iiiterspering the words With
song. Woman is affectionate and suffers ; she is constantly in need ol
something to lean upon, like the
honeysuckle upon tbr tree or fence
Man'is atlaehed to tbe lireside, by
bis affection to her, and the happi
uess it gives him to protect and support her. Superior and inferior to
man, humiliated by the heavy hand of
nature, but at the same time inspired
hy intuitions of a higher order than
man can ever experience, she has fas
i united hi in, innocently bewitched
him forexer. And man has remained
nnclianted by the spell. Women are
generally better creatures than men.
Perhaps they have, taken universally,
weakei appetites and stronger affections, but they have much stronger
affections. A man with a bad heart
has been somet imes saved by a
strong head , but a corrupt woman
is lost forever.
A group of sticcesslttl men were
once recounting the scenes and in
(unices that had sluytd by them
-into youth and given them help ami
Inspiration through their struggling
manhood. One said his dearest mem
Qriw clustered about the old apple
live by the kitchen door, where his
grandmother sat and sung familiar
hymns of old, while she sewed and
spun. Another said that memories
oi a certain coiner in the living
loom lu his childhood's home always
siifSnoio ts.iq s;t| iitiii.it! oiu; pojieo
and hiKhest motive*. This corner
was covered with pictures of great
men and women taken from newspapers and magazines unframed—simply
fastened on the wall with flour paste
-but their influence has never been
effaced. Still another said : "Whenever 1 sit down at a dinner table, be
it a grand banquet or a simple res
taurant, the memory of my mother's
i able i ernes back lo me and I once
more see the plain glass vase with
its few green leaves and its spray ot
pinks or its sprig of mignonette—al
ways there—summer or winter, shedding a sweet benediction upon us.
You may smile if you like, but that
memory has kept me pure."
The wife becomes a pillar of
strength by being the inspiration of
her husband's life. For her be is
strong, and through the years of
wedded life he has drawn from her
the inspiration that would hold him
in a spell of love ; and the desire to
retain that love develops in his character all that is good in him.
Some one has said a good wife is
Heaven's last and best gift to man,
his angel and minister of graces innumerable, his gem of manly virtues;
her voice bis sweetest music, her
smiles bis bright day, her kiss the
guardian ol his innocence, ber bosom
the safest pillow for his cares, ber
prayers the ablest advocate of Heaven's blessing upon bis bead. Tbe true
wife makes a man's life better, nobler, stronger, by the inspiration oi
her love and devotion turning all the
forces of his nature Heavenward. By
her refinement she clothes him with
the gentle graces of a refined and cultured manhood.
Tbe wife makes the spirit of the
borne. As an inspiration in the home
sua is universally loved, and no
woman need feel her sphere ot Influence is limited as long as she is
tbe crowned queen of a worthy man's
home. She is the ruler of his career,
and she can inspire him by filling his
home with the desire to b« what she
truly isa

on Evans creek, six miles from Slo

for the erection of a milling plant at

by next April.
Messrs. Proctor and McOougall, or
the Fernle Lumber Co., of Fernie,

Oregon is building a factory that is
the only one ot Its kind in the United
States. The plant is located in Sum-
merville and is owned and managed
by Turner Oliver. It manufactures a
fiber and an oil from pine needles
The fiber is used for stuffing mattresses and the oil utilized in the manufacture of medicine. A powder is also
produced which has a great value as
an insect destroyer. The plant is
building now and will start operation? about .lanuray 1. The entire
product of the plant has been contracted to D. M. W- Brune, of Alaska, and H. H. McCarthy, of Portland, for a period of five years. The
operation of the plant will be watched with a great deal of interest in
other parts of the country, as on its
success depends the erection of similar plants in districts wEcre the pine
tree thrives.

A Cohjnatal  Duel.
Charles Coypeati, Sieur d'Aisonet, a
French poet nnd musician of the seventeenth century, relates in one of bit
"Aventurea" that his father and moth*
er were one day engaged In a discussion upon questions of law when a dispute arose between them with regard
to the precise signification and bearing
of a provision In Justinian's code with
respect to the rights of brothers. Ulti*
mately tbe quarrel waxed so furious
that the disputants lost all control of
themselves, defied each other to single
combat and proceeded to settle their
difference and determine the mind of
the ancient legislator by a fight .with
This singular duel took place In their
son's presence. Coypeau pere was an
advocate by profession and a member
ot one of the French parliaments.
Madame was exceedingly diminutive
and had to wear exceptionally high
pattens to approach the ordinary stature of women, but she was fierce and
domineering tn temper. Tbe combat
appears to have been a drawn battle,
and the sense of Justinian remained ai
obscure and debatable as ever.

Public men, he said, had great re-
sponslhiliiies m making end retailing a united Canada. "The man
who ought not to be sent to Parliament or trusted as a leader," said
Mr. Gordon, "and Bhould be turned
down SWHt and hard is the man
who, under stress of party exigencies, emphasizes the difference between people and people, or Province and Province, I'm a Protestant and a Ottisen of Winnipeg, but
my interests es a Canadian in Manitoba are not different from those of
the French Roman Catholic who Is a

likes to go on a ramble once a year,
differ from those of any cultured
ire'itleman of Toronto. They are
hnth here, and each is Valuable In
his place. Both the man of Toronto and the Poukhobor of the plains
may turn out to be equally good
nnd honest citizens." No member of
Parliament should, therefore, he
said, be representative purely ot
manufacturers, or of farmers, or any
oiher class. He should represent Canadians In the broadest sense of the
Tt* Miking of th* Wesl.
Turning te the making of the West.
the speaker said that schools and
colleges should take an important a
place in this Western development.
Some men failed to sea the advantage of higher education. For the
Wrist ihey though' only self-made men
wore needed, men who perhaps could
only read and write, or maul*
wealth. Of what use were poets or
writers of ficiion. for instance, they
said. "Well, if he is a bad poet,"
observed Rev. Mr. Gordon, "or a
bad water of fiction, h* is a dangerous man; but if he writes a good
pn-rn or a good novel, he should be
paid a iarce salary. Do not deapisa
the unpractical man."
On the previous Friday afternoon,
Mr. Gordon, in the Convocation
Hall of Knox College, Toronto, lectured un ideals tor Oei.adians. Sum-
rofd up his talk would resolve itself
into a literary sermon from the following  text:
"The material is a great possession, but greater than the material
Is th* spiritual."
We have a great heritage, he Mid,
and with it comes a great responsibility. Canada had lately been rediscovered by thi* Americans. A new
West had sprung into life, and the
Dominion had entered a second period of youth. Now was the time
for forming ideals while young Canada is still in the formative period.
The ideals he held for Canadians
wer* thoae of self-dependence as opposed to the parasitic spirit, unwavering fidelity to duty, sympathy with
others, a national unity Irrespective
of rare, language or religion, end
finally spirituality aa opposed te
Th* f*Mp*att* Wmi.
Coming from the composite West,
with its growing mfiture of races
and creeds, the lecturer naturally
emphasized the need of unity. Weat
of the Great Lakes, ga(d he, there
were flO.000 fellow-citizens who did
not speak our language, and who
did not believe in our religion. Thi*
complexity of racea and creeds wis
necessary in a new country. No bar
could keep out the people of other
londa, who were attracted hy the
richness of our territory. And Canada needed just such people as tbe
peasants of Europe, men who would
do a day's work for a day's wage,
who would take up willingly tho
work our own Canadian youth passed by. The peoples from other countries, who came to share our prfv-
ileses would, he believed, if received
in the proper spirit and encouraged,
soon become asfiinllnted, and prove
true and worthy citizens.
Ialrltoa.1 PotsatlellllM.
Lastly, the (deal he cherished most
for the people of Canada was the
fostering of their spiritual potentialities. Our foreste and our wheat
fields and our oceans nf fish were a
wonderfully rich possession, but beyond all it was the unseen, tha spiritual life, that counted for greatness. Thnt for which the university
stood, high thinking, lofty Ideals,
nobility of character, held the flrBt
place among the things that would
ensure for our young nation an enduring greatness. THE   CRANBROOK   HBRALD

■save had some rare hunts together. But
bow you have grown! You were only
a little girl when I left." Then, nodding toward bis companion, be said:
"I've brought my friend, Mr. Daniel-
son, down to try alligator hunting. I
tell him your father ia probably tbe
best gator guide la south Florida."
The girl's face clouded,
"Paw's in right pore shape," she said,
"He was lost lu the Everglades an'
got tbe shakes pow'ful bad. I 'low he
can't do no more guldln' for right
The men looked at each other In per*
plexlty, seeing which the girl hastened
to add:
"Cleb can guide you all better'u anybody except paw. He ain't but twelve
years ole, but paw says what be don't
know 'bout gators ain't worth takln'
leBBons on."
Bnt Mr. Lowery looked doubtful.
"I remember Cleb," he said, ''but It
■trlkes me that be would be rather a
email chap In case of emergency."
"Paw says that Cleb can get awty
IWltb most anything,"
"Very well, we'll try him, of course;
It Is thirty miles to tbe nearest settlement where a guide could be found.
Now, suppose we go lu and huve a
talk with your father."
An hour later Cleb came In, a email,
freckled face boy with quick, sharp
eyes which seemed to take In everything. Soon after appeared Mr. Low-
ery*s man wltb the camp equipage.
"I suppose we can have tbe old camp
site by the creek Y" Mr. Lowery in-
"Suttlngly, surtlnglyl" responded Mr.
Dobeason heartily. "You all act Jest
like you was to home en' help yourselves. There's rafts of garden sass
an' melons spllin'."
Before night the enmp wns rendy,
and late In tbe evening tbe two men
wltb their young guide went down to
the creek for a preliminary "brush"
iwltb tbe alligators. And it did not take
long to discover that tlie girl's praise
of ber brother was Justifiable. Before
many days the two men expressed
themselves as perfectly satisfied with
bis services.
As the days went by tbe relations
between the bouse and tbe camp grew
more Intimate. Mr. Danlelson was an
enthusiast In bis profession and found
tbe voice of the young girl fully as attractive as nlligutor bunting. Day
after day be listened to her singing,
making comments, suggestions and
often accompanying it wltb bis own
trained voice. And tbe more be listened tbe more be wns resolved to take
fcer back with blm to New York.
"I would like the training of such a
voice," be said to Mr. Lowery. "She
will make a grand woman some day.
If only her language was not ao barbarous."
But In time even her language grew
less harsh to bis earn. And ber eyes
were so brown and deep, so frank and
open. What mattered a fow oddities
of expression T
One day Mr. Lowery took blm te
"Ton must go slow, Danlelson," be
■aid warnlngly. "You are only twenty-
eight, and Liza Is no ordinary girt. But
you know the Impossibility."
For a moment bis companion made
no reply: then be said:
"Yes, I know the Impossibility. I
have convinced myself of It a dozen
times. Tbe girl Is absolutely Ignorant,
a cracker lu the extreme sense of the
term, while I am what books ami money have made me, and yet," after a long
pause, "as soon aa 1 convince myself of
Its absurdity 1 am sure to begin to
make plana to take ber north aud give
ber an education."
Tbe next afternoon as tbe two were
practicing together Mr. Danlelsou asked In a matter ot tact tone:
"How would you like to go north sud
study music, Liza7"
She raised her eyes frankly. This
was one ot her attractions. She never
showed embarrassment or self consciousness.
"1 used to 'low I'd like to learn things
right much," she suld simply, "but
money's been tease, an' since paw's
been sick I've done give hit all up."
There was a wilfulness In ber voles
wblcb he took Instant advantage of.
"If you could arrange to go north

have a chance to learn everything. My
mother would look after you, aud"—

At this moment Mr. Lowery came
up. With blm was a young man lu

"Excuse tbe Interruption, Danlelson,"
said Mr. Lowery, "but I want you to

me speak of blm—my guide among tbe
keys; saved my lite off Anclote and

Mr. Danlelson advanced cordially.

Much confuslou has arisen from confounding the common laurel (Lauras
census, or laurel cherry) with tbe famous laurel ot tbe ancients (L. uobllis).
Tbe'former was not introduced into
Europe until 1570. Us leaves contain
tbe potent poison prusslc acid, whereas the leaves ot L. nobllls contain a
fragrant aromatic oil used iu confectionery. It Is to this, the true laurel,
that we apply tbe term bay, and we
use it as a poetical term for an honorary crown or garland bestowed aa a
prise for any kind of victory or excellence.
We apparently get tbe word bay
through the Latin bacca, a berry from
the French baye, or, as Holland's
"Flinte" has it, "The bales or berries
(bacca.) that It (the rolall laurell) bear-
eth." Hence also the term "bachelor"
la supposed by some to be derived from
the ancient practice ot crowning candidates for honors with bay leaves and
berries, whence tbe term baccalaureus
and laureate. Those who were found
worthy of the honor obtained tbe laurel of bachelor or the laurel ot doctor (laurea bacca la ureatua, laurea doc-
toratus). In tbe Scotch universities
the act ot conferring degrees is or was
styled "laureatiou," and a chaplet was
used In some of them. In tbe ages of
chivalry the bas chevaliers, or men below the degree of knight were admitted to serve by being crowned with a
chaplet of laurel berries aud were
hence called baccalaurel.—Notes end
Although the snake appears to have

Joint of the backbone bears a pair of

A recent Saturday night's lecture
at the Canadian Institute in Toronto was by Prol. Knight of Quean's,
who in a most interesting manner
gave the result of some further experiments ha bad made on the effect
of sawdust on ilsh life. The lecture
was a continuation of the address
which he gave to the Institute about
a. year ago. The professor has mads
an exhaustive study of the subject,
nnd the conclusion at which ha has
arrived may be summed up as follows: That in a rapidly-running
stream of water the presence of sawdust has no injurious effect upon the
lish; but if the water la stagnant it
rapidly becomes Injurious. In his
experiments be found that this was
due to certain substances which were
dissolved out of tbe wood, and, further, that the sawdust from white
pine and from cedar seemed to be
the most injurious; also that the
character of the saws used to a certain extent intluenoed the amount of
the material that might be dissolved
from sawdust.
In this experiment he also tried a
slowly running stream at the laboratory with varying rates of flow and
varying amounts of sawdust, and in
the experiment where the smallest
percentage of sawdust was present
compared with the flow of tbe stream
he found small fish would live about
two hours. That waa In a atrengto
of .Id per cent, of sawdust. In comparing this with the amount of sawdust In a stream such at the Bonne-
chare River, and taking Into account
the flow of the stream and the
amount ol sawdust passing In per
diem, the professor arrived . at the
conclusion that In such a river the
amount of sawdust would not reach
more than .004 per cent., and he did
not consider that it waa much of a
factor In tbe destruction of fish life
In such a river.
Prof. Knight said bis further experiments showed that the destruction of fish tn stagnant water by
sawdust was not due to putrefaction
of the sawdust, but to these extracted substances from the wood, and
that in time with fresh air and sunlight the water would purify itself.

Nothing from cattle is allowed to
go to waste; from the horns to the
long hair on the tip of the tail all
is utilized. Tbe latter is turned into curled hair for upholstering. The
hoofs go chiefly into the kettle to be
boiled for glue, and the residue is
made into hoof-meat, a valuable fertilizer. Even the tankage water Is
bolted to extract its fats. The coarse
bones are either carbonized and- sold
for sugar-refiners' use or turned Into
fertilizers, and tbe blood Is mostly
dried and turned Into another aid ot
agriculture. Before the horns are
sold, the pltli i.i extracted from
them, und tbo Hnost grade or gelatine is obtained from the pith. The
sinews arc separated lo be used for

member for Centre Toronto there
ware In the Houee of Commons woven or eight old Upper Canada College boys who had been at the old
school under Mr. Cockburn. They
annually had a little dinner, and
great waa the enjoyment at that
function, says The News. T. Muymi
Daly, then Minister of tho Interior.
was one of Mr. Cockburn'a favorite
pupils, and li annually was the
former principal's habit to tell the
company how Daly and a certain Toronto newspaper correspondent were
the only boys whom he had vvei
"licked" three timea in one day.
Both Daly and the journalist were ul-
esays at the little dinner, and Mr.
Cockburn Invariably expressed doubt
sa to which had been the worst boy.
But the wickedness waa only schoolboy wickedness. Pillow fights, "skipping out"—!, a., going down town
without leave, and such like offence*;
were the sum total ot their crimen.
But Thomas. Mayne Daly had to his
credit one crime that, for all that in
known, may yet be talked of with
bated breath by th* collegians of today. It certainly was a famous
school story fifteen years alter Duly
left College. In the principal's garden, la the old days, were two great
cherry trees, and Daly was the only
boy within the memory of the oldest of the College servants, who had
ever been bold enough to scale the
fence and purloin the cherries. Of
course he waa caught, and equally of
course, he wan caned In good shape.
But he was a hero for all that, and
long after he had gone into the big
world, new tioys were told how Daly
of Stratford had "swiped the Principal's cherries."
Pare* of Schoolboy Habits.
The force of habit Is strong, and
even when he waa a Cabinet Minister, Daly always addreaeed Mr. Cock-
bum by the schoolboy "Sir," as, in
fact, do a good many bearded men
in Toronto to-day. The citizens perhaps don't see as much of Mr. Cockburn aa they used, but it Is pretty
difficult for him to negotiate a two-
block walk on King street without
being greeted by some one of hjs
old boys. And ho never forgets a
name. Also, he pretty nearly always has some recollection of some
escapade In which the boy was con-
corned. This latter, of course, applies mainly to the old boys who
were boarders. The day boys, the
Principal and masters saw comparatively little. In the old days, It
was th* cheerful habit of tlie board-
era periodically to chase the day
hoys home after school. These demonstrations were calculated with the
sole end of convincing the day boys
that, while they might be decent
enough fellows, they Were hardly on
an equality with the lads who lived
*4 the College. Your boy at a big
residential school Is usually rather
prejudiced In such matters, and perhaps it Is well that be should be so.
When he geta out into the world, u
good many rough edges are worn off.
But while he la at school. It Is a
good thing for blm to believe that
his Is tlie best school In the world.
And Upper Canada boys never hud
any doubt on that point.
Me, Umutj W. Autlea, Who R**anlij Arrived irom t«*ll*ud.
Mr. Henry W. Auden, M.A., the
new principal of Upper Canada College, Toronto, Is now in his thirty-
sixth year, and has been until recently assistant master in Feit.es
College, one of the best known educational establishments in .Scotland.
He was educated at Shrewsbury
school, remaining there from 1881
to 1886. in October of the latter
year he entered Cambridge University, having been elected to a Senior
Open Classical Scholarship at
Christ's College. During his residence at Christ's.College he obtained
the college prizes for Greek and Latin Verse Composition, and the Por-
teous Gold Medal for Latin Prose.
In June, 1887, be obtained the Bell
University Scholarship for classics.
In 1889 he graduated B.A., obtaining First Class Honors (Second
Bracket) In the Classical Tripos
Part I. Remaining at Cambridge
for a fourth year he devoted himself
to the study of the Comparative
Philology of the Greek and Latin
languages end the acquirement of a
knowledge of Sanscrit, Ho has
since graduated M.A., and la a member of the Senate of Cambridge University. After a short
residence at Marburg, where he
attended the lectures of Professor
Nlese and Professor Victor, he was
appointed, In 1801, assistant muster
at Fettes College, a position which
he held until he was selected by tho
Board of Trustees of Upper Canada
College to succeed Dr. G. It. Parkin.
While at Fettes,.Mr. Auden endeavored to keep in touch with the progress of classical studies, both In
England and in Germany, and not to
fall behind in understanding the wider problems of education, especially
the study of its methods. He bus
traveled in Italy and devoted his attention to such of the antiquities of
Rome as aie Important for a thorough appreciation of Latin literature. He has edited one of the
plays of ITautus for tlie Cambridge
University Press, the Pro Planclo of
Cicero, for Messrs. Macmillan, and
also the Latin Phrase Book for the
Same publishers,, and he is at present general editor of the classicul
series now being Issued by Messrs.
Blackwood, Mr. Auden Is undoubtedly a man of wide educational abilities, and will be a great acquisition
to the society of Toronto.
A Pertinent Question,
Speaking late one night, Hon. Mr.
Peterson of Brant attracted the
notice of a gentleman, who had been
dining, and who kept Interrupting
him with crlea of "Rot." After enduring this for several minutes the
speaker paused and said, "If It's
rot, why does the honorable gentleman drink so much of it?"
Then- are a number ol Oranbrook
merchants who have been bringing
apples in t'liinbiuMk by the car-
loud. These merchants have compim
with ihe law. which makes ii necessary for theiu tu have each box
marked with tho nrowet*s name,

Beauty is a dangerous gift. It
is even so. Like wealth it has
ruined it's thousands. Thousands of
the most beautiful women are destitute of common humanity, No
gift from heaven is so general and
widely abused by women its the
gift of beauty. In about nine cases in ten it makes her silly, senseless, thoughtless, giddy, vuin, proud,
frivolous, selfish, low and menn.
We think we have seen more girls
spoiled by beauty than by nny other
one thing. "She is beautiful, and
she knows it" iB as much as to says
she is spoiled. A beautiful girl is
very likely to believe she was mode
to be looked at; and so she sets
herself up for a show at every window, in every door, on every corner
uf the street, in every company at
which opportunity offers for an exhibition of herself. And believing
und acting thus she soon becomes
good for nothing else, and when
she comes to be a middle-aged
woman, she is that weakest, most
sickening of human things—a faded
It seems to be difficult in this
world for men and women to keep

Surely life wus mude for something mure lln,ii this, or els., is not
worth the living. God has endowed man witli several natures- a
physical, a mental, a moral. M
cannot live I.y bread alone. He
nuiBt have fool for tin, mind and
food for his heart. It is as great a
sin to starve the soul as to starve
the bxly. A mental or moral suicide does not seem so dreadful as
physical self destruction, because
it is less palpable, less sudden, less
apparent in its results; but it
would seem more terrible if we had
the power to see the effect consummated. A dead mind, a dead heart,
a dead soul, that drags itself about
in a living body, is a terrible spectacle. Whether this deadening of
the soul is the result of active immorality, or of passive submission
to over work and neglect of the
higher nature, its result is the
same. We must not fling away
and squander the best of life.   Vt.
must work but we must not drudge.
We must remembor that God
breathed into us the breath of lite,
that we nre living spirits, and that
Clod and man hold us to account
for the fruits of the spirit as well
us for the work of the body. When
we have labored until we are weary
it is right to stop and rest; it is
right to have the spirit and character to refuse to be reduced to the
level of dumb, driven cattle. It is
right to stop and think, to distinguish what absolutely must be
done, to realize that each dny
should hnve its plensures nnd recreations, aud to take the time for

Vancouver World : Always ol interest, though seldom properly supported iu British Columbia, is the
country newspaper. This province
has little to complain ol as far as
the number of newspapers go, and
nothing to urge aguiust the way it is
served by them, considering the limited means at their command and the
often very large districts they have
to attempt to cover.
Of the making ol newspapers there
seems to be no cud in British Columbia. The most recent towns to have
new publications are La.lysmith, En-
derhy and Kclowna ; now Heflley is
to be no longer newsless, and the
Lardeau is to be hotter served. The
Hedley Gazette is just about to be
issued'. Its " editor and proprietor"
is Mr. A. Megraw, who is no novice
at the business. In the early days
oi the Boundary excitement,, when
the toundations of now Uuttes were
being laid all over the district, Mr.
Megraw and Dr. Mathison founded a
newspaper at Okaiiagan Falls. It has
gone the way of the Vancouver Telegram and Ledger. Let us hope the
Hedley venture will have better sue
As lor the Lardeau, the Ferguson
Eagle and Trout Lake Topic have

expert; " his partner, Mr. J. J.
Athcrton, bows when one speaks ol
him as " a competent journalist and
printer." The Mining Review, being
painfully aware that the sheet it publishes is " no typographical triumph," announces that it will instal
an up-to-date press at " a very near
date." The use of the adjective
proves that times must be tairly
good in the Lardeau. Of course, the
growtji of the district has not been
