The by-eieelions to the legislature
have given lhe Gouin government in
a way what it has not heretofore
bmi in a position to claim, an endorsement, that may besaid to come
from the province. Four constituencies were opened, and though they
w.-re all in the eastern section of
tbe province, they were lar enough
separated to give ito. victors ground
enough for claiming their judgment
represents that of lhe majority of the
electorate. Tliis may not be altogether a good thing. That there
bas been weakness in the administration of the present government i.s
indicated by the recent resignation
of Mr. Jean Provost and by the
criticism of mnny of its actions by
m. n nol opposed to it. It would
have been better if the majorities in
favor of the Liberal candidates bad
heen less pronounced. As it Is, they
constitute an authority to Uie ministers lo go on doing as they have

unsatisfactory, for members of the

Ottawa, Nov. 13.—In reply to questions concerning lbe financing uf the
western wheat crop the Uuu, VI. s.
Ei.ddiug said tho government regarded the difficulties that had arisen iu
the west as uf more than local Importance, inasmuch as lhe satisfactory marketing of lhe crop was a
iii.tti-rr .if ibe utmost concern tu the
Itiadc mid commerce ut the whole
country, The particulai feature of
the situation which impressed the
government, and catted lot some ac-
llon, was tlie fact, thai the close o(
hilii- navigation was near at hand
ami ihal iplltc a large poiiion of
ibe crop was reported to tie of such
H ibaraelri that if il wile not moved
mil immediately it would be dalnaged
if not destroy™. The government
have, therefore, toll        it
Iheir duty to meet the emergency by
co-operating with the banks in order
lu provide facilities for tiie bundling
of the crops iu the very short time
ihat yel remained before the lakes
wilt lie closed. The steps that were
being taken, -Mr. Fielding added,
gave assurance thai the banks which
usually handle this class of business
wuiild be able to meet all reasonable
demands as he believed thai lhc crop
wouhl nuw move quickly.
C, C. Castle, tne warehouse commissioner, arrived from Montreal tonight and in company with Senator
I'idlay and Senator Watson left at
midnight for lhe west. Asked as
lo bis business Mr. Castle said that
he came cast to work not talk. It is
understood, however, lhat tbe mis-
sum of the delegation to the east
was iu connection with the movement
of the gram crop and was .successful,
'the interview with the finance miuis-
ler given out tonight established ibis
fact. Tin- result will be thai the
governmenl, llie railways, and lhe
im uks will co-operate in this direction to git as much as possible of

For llie lust six mouths of lhe

Judging Iroui tbe appearance uf the

thai his firm will not employ Asiatics

Make Northern British Columbia a
country in which respectable white

living without being placed iu competition with or classed as Asiatic
coolies, ami iis influence will he a
power for good in the province.
Eight or nine white men in the
legislature, representing white men,
can make themselves heard among
the men who sit ai Victoria making
laws, who first musl secure the approval of captains of Industry whose
employers are Asiatic coolies and
whoso constituents ate afraid tn disobey their masters.
t Ry PHt), when there will lie -. reapportionment of seats in tbe legislative assembly, the population ol
Northern British Columbia will he
fully 50,000, or as many people as
will be on Vancouver Island, or in
Kootenay and Yale districts combined. These .'ilUim, people will- he
whites, and thev will be entitled to
one-fifth of lhe seals in the legislature. One-fifth of 12, the number nf

I-.ight men standing for decent conditions for wliile working men and

will cause things lo be done.
The new white pioneers uf Northern
British Columbia have started iu the
right way. They will meet wilh
obstacles, for greed and the love ol
money is strongly entrenched, but tbe
obstacles can lie overcome, if only
the people are true to themselves.

for Iwo ot the greatest themes that
can engage the mind—human liberty
ami the immortality of the soul.
Notwithstanding the frequent production nf this play, it is never produced
in tbe sumptuous manner by other
companies as it is In Stetson's. It
is like meeting an old friend after a
yead's absence. In his theatrical offering Manager Washburn has brought
together all lhe requisites that go lo
make a really great production ami
one it will be a real loss to miss.
RESOLUTION OF RESPECT
Whereas, the Great and Supreme
Ruler of the Universe, has in His iniiii lie wisdom removed from among
us one of our worthy and esteemed
brothers, W. E. Fraser, and whereas,
the long and intimate relation held
wiib bim in ibe faithful discharge of
Ins dilute makes ii eminently befitting that we record our appreciation
of him;
Therefore be it resolved, that the
wisdom and utility which he has exercised iu the aid of our organization by service, contributions and
council, will he held in grateful roil icmbcraucc;
Resolved, the sudden removal of
such a life from among our midst
leaves a vacancy ami a shadow chat
will be deeply realized by all tho
members and friends of this organization.
Resolved, lhat with deep smypathy
with the bereaved relatives of the deceased we express our hope that oven
so great a loss to us all may be
overruled for good by Him who doeth
all things well.
Resolved, that   a copy of these resolutions lie spread upon the records
of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, a copy printed in lhe Trainmen's
journal, tile local paper and a    copy
forwarded to the bereaved family.

Rambling Reveries
BY A DREAMER,
FARM POETRY
Mr. EJdllor: Will vou kindly t*ive
space lu your Rambling Reveries department lot ;i farmer's wife to
."speak Iter piece." To begin with
[wo nil enjoy your Rambling Reveries
column and find much in ii Uiat is
luseful as well as interesting. Uf
[lale. howovdr, while wo fullv agree
wilih most that appears in this tl
IjiarUnent, we have read ,t few items
regarding the beauties ol life on the
farm with which wo differ, Whore is
the poetry of farming? 'Tell me,
ye Winged winds," ui nny one
|who cuii, for we really ask for
formation on the subject. Wo
beard of a person living all Iris
time in sight of a mosl beautiful
landscape, but lie never saw ihe
beauty nor dreamed of bucIi a thing,
till his attention was called io    the
liift   I))'  -iliolhei.       II   in,iv   In-  SO  Willi
us, we may in- living In the very
mi.Isl oi Mn- poetry .mil pleasure ol
rural life, ami out dulled senses fail
io realize the fuel. Therefore
please, who can, point US to Uie
bright way. Hut pleaao don't mention, among the attractions of country life the "woodland dells, where
liny leaflets clap iheir merry hands
ami all nature smiles in serene happiness-;" nor say anything about the
"pure, fresh country air." We have
a nice grove on our farm, uud often
when we run out for un armful of
wood or u pall of wuier, we look at
the grove and think how pleasant it
Would tnt to sil Ihere and test; hut
the ihet'tie wails for the water, the
fire for the wood, and hack we go.
And when the work is done, there is
the baby—she cannot be left alone,
und we think we prefer rest indoors
to an enjoyment of nature's beauties
under such c rcumstances.
As to the "pure, fresh air," we
[have b'reathed quite as pure air iu
cities us that which is wafted from
| the neighboring pig-yard. And when
(tho wind sweeps from our big marsh,
il is most too fresh for comfort or
[the well-being of the clothes switching on the clothes-line.
| We should never have thought so
mueh about this were (here not so
much written about the beauty anil
poetry of farm life, by those who
know least about it. There are
charming rural retreats, we know,
but charming rural life is another
thing. A party may spend a hut
siinimer day iu the cool woods and
be delighted; but let them pass the
same day over the conk stove or
ironing board, or in the hay field,
they will lind a difference. The former is the ideal rural life; the latter
the real.
There are many pleasures in tho
farmer's life, but plenty nf hard work
to destroy all idea of poetry, and
bring one' down to very common
prose. Is there poetry in butchering,
sausage making, lard frying'.' Is
there, oh, is there, poetry in picking
potato bugs?
■ A Prairie Farmer's Wife.
FLOWERS TEACH NEATNESS
' We hope all who read this column
will endeavor to keep a low llnwers in
the home. lu addition to their
beauty and fragrance, they teach
neatness and order. The wile and
children like to have a clean room,
so lhat the llower, in its purity and
grace, may not shame them. And
then, too, a poor man likes io tec!
that he has an ornament in his dwelling similar to that which a rich
man chooses as the best embellishment of bis drawing-room. The cot-
tngo and tlie mansion differ very much
in structure and in furniture, but a
pretty llower, carefully watered and
tended, blooms as well in a cottage
as in a palace window, 'then the
llower speaks to the inmates of the
home and tells .hem of the wisdom
ami love of Uod; how lie sent these
beautiful flowers into the world to
please the eye ol man.
j THREE IMPORTANT THINGS
' Throe things tti love: Courage,
gentleness, affection. Three tilings
to admire: Intellectual power, dignity
ami gracefulness. Three things to
hate: cruelty, vengeance, ingratitude.
Three things to delight in: beauty,
frankness, freedom. Three things
to wish for: health, friends and a
cheerful spirit. Three things to
pray for: faith, peace, purity of
heart. Three things to like: good
humor, mtrthfulncss and tho Rambling Reveries department. Three
Urings tn avoid Idleness, loquacity,
fill)pant Jesting. Three things to
cultivate : good hooks, good friemls,
good humor. Three things lo contend for: honor, country, friemls.
Three things to govern; temper, tongue, conduct. Three things to think
ahoul: life, death, eternity.
MATRIMONIAL  MANIA
I We lmve just been shown u matrimonial journal in which men advertise for wives the same as they wouhl
for a horse. The way iu which tlie
majority of men marry, is nothing
short of ii burlesque upon lhe "sacred
Institution." They set abuut looking
for a wife as Ihey Would for a horse.
They make uu inventory of her
"good points," ascertain Uio quickness of her movements, the state of
her digestion, her capacity for
economy, the yielding quality nf her
disposition; if she "suits" Ihey pro-
p080 partnership, and women arc
such fools, if we must Bay it, fools
from th.. force of circumstances and
custom, as to say "yes," when with
all the thunder of their souls they
should sny "no." Such offers of
marriage arc insults lo the women
who receive tbem, a shame and disgrace to the men who make them,
and rank disorder to the Lord who
created tbem.
There i.s nothing in the moral,
spiritual or physical universe that
mokes marriage respectable, hut
love. Without it there can be no
marriage, only a wretched, miserable
form, lhat rapidly degenerates into a
loathsome, demoralizing burden. The
time to marry is when love demands
it, and not simply because the
kitchen needs a coolo, lhc dining table
a figure-head in muslin or silk, or
the cucumber vines somebody to k
the hugs on them. The one to
marry is the woman you love, and no
other one. That, and that alone
should decide. Riches may take
wings and flee away; beauty may
fade; good health is a very excellent
and desirable thing in man or woman,
but the circumstance of an hour or a
moment may ruin the best ot health.
A man who marries from "married ucnl arrangement upon a silk waist
considerations,*' usually gels what wi'"" the yoke is tucked uud finished
he deserves—ils full equivalent in un- Wlt*' 'aoe insertion. Again, those

Court plaster is a good
remedy. Cut tlio piaster Into triangles and strips to tit tlie wrinkles

live or ten minutes with a good cold
cream, l.'se a strong plaster .mil one
that will stick well. The black Variety is best for this purpose.
Stretching exercises of the throat
and neck will reduce a double chin
permanently. Hold the chin up as
far as it will go and with vour finger
tips massage it with a downward
motion. Pushing the lower jaw in
and out is also good. Once or twice
a week is often enough for such heroic
treatment.
The girl with unusual hips—the
commonest of afflictions—may cure
them, ir the innfuallty be iml'ton far
advanced, by ;. ten minute exercise
daily.     Bring the knee on tho larger
lo up to the chest and lower it
again, all the while standing erect as
possible. Do this twenty or thirty
limes each dny.
Ten minutes manicuring does nol
promise very mueh. In thai time,
however, something mav he done to
keep the hands in good condition.
The nails may be Med and tbo skin

So many women lake short trips
ihese days of easy travel that thev
should know how to cure for the
complexion while soot and dust nro
sifling in through the windows and
floors of fast-moving trains. The soap
and water usually found in Uie dressing rooms of even the most luxurious
sleeping coaches play havoc with the
skin; lhe water is hard and the soap
unrefined. Creams of some sort
hould always he carried; a little
toih-t vinegar, some sort of soup
jelly, a nim|ilt. mmilct; Umhw will \».

case or a little box that will lit |n

CLEANING SKIRTS
Mere is a practical plan for clean-
g and pressing skirts: Brush them
rst,     then   whisk off with a    clean
brush    dampened   in ammonia    und
warm water.
Any stain can be removed if rubbed
it at once with ;l mixture of equal
ils of ammonia, alcohol and water.
Afler the skirt is thoroughly cleaned
brushed and dried, lay it on ihe
pressing table or board, pin each
plait down in a proper fold, cover
ihe skirt with a piece of dark woollen
goods whieh Gas Ween previously
dampened and then press.
To remove dust from silk skirts do
mil use a brush, but wipe them with
a piece of velveteen, which will not
wear ihe silk and will remove the
dust very much more satisfactorily
than a brush.
Silk or ruffled skirts should he
fitted out with     tapes sewn ou     the
iwer ruffles, bv whieh tbey may be
hung upside down. This prevents the
skirt from sagging and the ruffles
from drooping.
Gowns of delicate material should
he put away in long boxes or drawers, each skirt being folded in plaits,
into which il should fall when   being
... -'ii. Tlw bodices should he stuffed
with tissue paper,     also   tho sleeves
ind trimmings tilled out with the
paper.
Wash frocks should always be put
away in trunks, boxes or drawers,
whether they have heen worn or not,
for in hanging they grow stringy, arc
more easily affected by dampness ami
lose their freshness before thev arc
worn.

When ready to sew on a row of
hooks nnd eyes place the two edges
of lining to which they are tn be
sewed evenly together one on top of
tha other," I hen take the tracing
wheel and mark' places on hnih edges
al once.
If the ruffles of silk petticoats bonne flimsy and a trifle worn, rut,
off the fringed pieces and sew on the
bottom of each ruffle a very narrow
pieot ribbon. Place tho edge, of the
ruffle in the middle of the ribbon,
sewing at tho top onlv, leaving the
lower edge to fall below the ruffle
edge.
Pillow cases will have Iheir usefulness .prolonged if, when they, begin
, to show signs of wear, they are un-
I ripped at the bottom, and, before, being seamed up again, are folded so
that the seam at the side now
comes down the middle. In this way
I the whole of the pillow case gets an
equal amount ol wear.

CIRCULATION STATEMENT
Fuliowing is a statement of the
circulation of tlie Craubrook Herald
fur the past tf months:
Augusl  5,270
September  4,315
October  4,805
November  5,460
December  5,400
January  6,600
Kebruary  4,425
March  4,425
April  4,423
Total for 1) months  43,623
The total for the B months is
43,623, which divided by 89, the
number ot issues during that period,
shows the average circulation per
Issue to have heen 1,118 and 31-39.
The above is a true aud correct
statement ol the circulation ot tha
Cranbrook Herald for the time stated.
F. K. Simpson, Manager.
Subscribed and sworn to belore me
hy the said F. K. Simpson, whom I
personally know, this 27 th day of
May,  1907.
J. A. Arnold,
.1. 1'. in and for British Columbia.
In eastern Canada and the States
It is considered a conservative estimate that live people read every
paper Issued. In Cranhrook, to be
on the safe side, we place the number at three, which is absolutely.
safe, and that would make 3,854 readers of the lleralil each week.
These circulation figures ean be
verified at any time by any advertiser who will take the trouble to go
over the subscription books or watch
the hig press roll out the papers.
This is where the advertiser nets „
run for bis money. The Herald
would like to see every newspaper
make a sworn statement or its circulation. The advertiser is entitled to know. He pays his money
and he sliould know what he is getting in return.
Why don't all papers do as the
Herald does?
I OBSERVATIONS   |
S »Y THE Ol.l) MAN. »
"THEM'S (il R SENTIMENTS."
The Herald has always been independent, and always will be so long
;is ii is under the present management.. Vet there arc some people
who do nol appreciate the full meaning of the term, and fall info the
error of thinking thai an individual
or ,t newspaper Uiat claims independence must have no opinions on polities or other matters of Importance.
The following from the Victoria
Colonist, ti recognized Conservative
paper, but nol a Conservative organ,
hits the nail on the head, and should
he un eye opener to some narrow-
minded individuals:
lu all parts of Canada there is a
protest on the part of leading
papers against their being regarded as party baeks, A great
change Is coming about iu t<his
respect. The time was not very
long ago when it could be truthfully saitl the poi tit leal parties
supported newspapers, now in the
majority of eases the newspapers
support the pany. The distinction is worth keeping iu mind.
Let us .u.ive an illustration. The
..ihi day a correspondent brought
a letter lo the Colonist, which be
wished to luve printed. It was
grossly personal and he was bold
ihal ii would nol be Liven a place
in on. columns. It had no reference io polities in any way. When
in* was refused hu grow quite Indignant, said that hit had always
been a Conservative aud that
things hatl come lo a pretty pass
"if I am nut allowed to print a
letter in our paper." He was
under 'the impression tbat In some
mysterious way he was a part
proprietor ui the Colonist, which
Iw seemed to suppose existed for
no other purpose than to enable
Conserva lives lo express their
opinions upon peoplu aud things
in general, no matter how bitterly. The Winnipeg Free Press
s.iys "it is not ito business of a
paper, however outspoken it may
he in its advocacy of political
opinions, iu act as a whipper-iu
for a party. It is its duty lo
a Ivoeate the principles and
policies   it   believes      to  he   light,
without regard io the doleful
tiniorousiicss of I inn-servers, conscious that in the long run it ean
thus best serve lhc party to
which it is allied and ito state ai
large," The Free I'ress is a
Liberal paper, aud the St. John
Telegraph, which claims to be Independent but lias a decided Conservative bias, declares the opin-
ii us oi iis Winnipeg contemporary
to    be     a    hopeful   sign of    Mie
We have in Canada newspapers
which are not conducted on this
principle and they arc not alt ou
one side of polities. They can
see nothing good in their opponents; Uiey can lind nothing wrong
iu iheir friends. They dare not
applaud a judicious act on the
pari ut whom they oppose, lest
they mi!,ht possibly influence
some one in their favor; they
dare not urge their own friends
Ui lake auy course lest by so doing ihey might enibarass tbem.
Sueh papers have very little in-
llucnee. Still less iutluence have
bhosc dealing with personalities.
Now, there arc personal references
io which objections cannot be
taken. A public man makes certain statements; it is proper for
Ins friends to applaud him and for
his opponents to criticise him,
provided the irut-h is adhered Uf,
bul it is not proper to indulge in
innuendoes reflecting upon the
motives of public men or to make
covert charges of dishonesty
against them. Sueh things can
Im: left by the papers supporting
,a party to those papers which
lhe party supports, and it would
be very much better for all concerned if the work were not done
at all.
A very great responsibility
rests upon tbe newspapers of Canada, a responsibility far greater
and mole lasting than lhat of seeing that the particular set of public men with whom the newspapers happen to be associated
get or remain in power. It is
the responsibility for elevating the
tone of public opinion. Too often
this duty is disregarded for the
sake of making an appearance of
smartness, or perhaps of winning
thu approval of some public man,
whose favor seems worth catering
for. Charges of corruption arc
had enough, when they are s-pecilii
and supported by evidence, but unfounded insinuations of corruption arc infinitely worse. Yet It
is In-coining the fashion In some
newspaper quarters to talk incessantly of corruption in connection
with every phase of public life.
This sort of tbing lowem the toue
of public sentiment. We bold
that, when corruption ean be established, it ought to be, and it
should he pressed home upon the
guilty parties without mercy; but
when' it cannot be established it.
ought nol lo he insinuated. We
do not believe an election was
ever gained by that soil of thing;
hut we do know thai the tone ol
public stiitintent has been lowered
and wrong impressions of ljfe in
lbe Dominion hnve been spread
abroad.
M. S. McCarthy, M. I1., the brilliant member from Calgary, tins au-
tiouiier-d lhat In- would not be a Candida te for it-elect ion, and the t.'al-
;ait Conservatives are thrown into
ousicin-iiion in consequence, as they
.ie tree in their expression of opinion
hai Mi. McCarthy is the „nly Coii-
ii-rvat'lve who can cany the Calgary
district.
(Ulen Ihere is n business man who
wonders if advertising pays, and
yet if he would stop and think for a
moment, he would be convinced that
in this modem day and age, telling
the people what you have for sale is
absolutely necessary for business success. Tliis fact is fully demonstrated by the. millions of dollars expended
in advertising by shrewd and successful business men each year. Some
months ngo, owing to a strike oil the
printers and pressmen at Butte,
Mont., all of the daily papers were
suspended for a few weeks, and during that time, the larger stores said
that their business fell off from 30 to
fift per cent, simply because tbey had
no medium of communication ' with
the people
Naturally the price for advertising
space depends upon tbe circulation and
standing of the publication. Some
of the larger advertisers spend fortunes for space in high class publica
tions. For instance, a single page
in one issue of tbe ''Chicago News"
costs $1141.50; in the "New York
American," $980.00; iu the "New
York Herald," $698,25: in "Collier's
Weekly," $1600.00; in the "Saturday
Kvenlng Post," JISOO.OO; in the
"Delineator," $1800.00; in the
"Woman's Home Companion,"' !
$1800.00; in the "Youth's Compau-!
ion," $iW0.O0; in the "Ladles Home!
Journal," $4000.00,
.This advertising musl pay, else the
advertiser could not afford lhe price.
And, it is llie same iu the largei
dailies ot Canada and the United
States. The paper ihat can give
results) gets tbe advertising and ihu
high price. Tlie Herald, iu a mod
est way, charges a higher price for
its advertising space lhan most weekly papers in Western Canada, yet it
gets the advertising, simply because
ihe Herald has ihc circulation and
gives the advertiser the results, it
is only Uw paper with the circulation,
lhe paper that is read by the people,
that can do ibis. The fact that
advertising pays is conceded by every
man in business, whether il be on a
large or small scale, and tlie fact
that advertising in the Herald pays
is further demonstrated by every
business man iu Cranbrook. Hu
knows what he is gelling tor his
money since lie knows, or can inform
himself, as lo thu actual circulation
of tbis paper, The Herald circulation is not a pig lu ibe poko proposition.
There is considerable talk about,
candidates lot mayor at the ucxL
municipal election, and Ihe names of
Ex-Mayor Rogers, Alderman Fink and
Alderman McCowau are being mentioned.
Head the Herald and keep posted.
Wbal Cranhrook needs for next
year is a broad-minded ma" in the
mayor's chair, a man who will he
aide to meet the demands of that office, fur the coming year promises io
he one of the most progressive in the
history of progressive Cranhrook. It
will take a big man tu make .(, success as mayor next year, and men in
thv council who will have in view the
progress ul Cranbrook above all
'Hints, and who will cut out petty
bickering and personal attacks. Such
a mayor and such a council will mean
much for the properly owner, the
wage earner und lhe town as a
whole.
Keep on boosting for Craubrook
ami the district.
The advertiser who pays money for
his advertising should take an interest
in the circulation of the paper tbal
gets his money. 'I'he Herald is only
too phased to give the advertisers
the very information that they have a
right lo receive. The Herald's circulation is Ivusui on lucUj nut wliul.
That is why advertising in the Herald brings satisfactory results.
The Herald job office lias been
rowded with work the past month.
An ollice that turns oul excellent
work invariably reaps its own reward.
Keep in mind thai race meeting.
It is going lo be a great boost for
Cranbrook and the whole district.
When you have a chance to say a
word for the Farmers' Institute, say
it. Its success means a great deal
tor this part of the country,
The banana crop has been a success
the past year.
The people of Cranhrook have the
well-earned reputation of working together. Let us maintain that reputation in the future.
It is easy to see that Cranbrook is
growing.
Send tbe Herald to the folks in the
east for a Christmas present. You
could not give them one that would
please them better.
A reader of the Herald remarked
last week, after reading the judgment in the celebrated oil lands
case and the latest news about the
Koolcnav Central: "Well, it is a
fad, that it there is anything of interest to the people of this district
it will always be found in the Herald."
The recent bye-elections in Ontario
move ilie Montreal Herald to remark that Ihere is nothing in their
results to indicate auy change in
political sentiment. The Star suggests the reason fol the failure of
the Conservatives to nuke headway
when it says: "The opposition—
'contrary to all tradltlon—has ho-
'eomc tin- timid party, substituting
'mild suggestion for positive ag-
'gression uud doing its official 'on*
'posing iu a halfhearted way. It is
'breaking no now ground with any
"implement more formidable than an
"erratic golf club, and leaves the
'people guessing what Ihey wouhl
'gain if tbey weir to work » poi it 1-
'enl revolution and lift the Conser-
"vative party to power."
Progress beats polities in lhe west,
aud the people in this part of the
Dominion are paying mole attention
to progress than Ihey ale to polities.
That Is why they are prosperous.
Head the Herald and gel all ihe
news.
The new mail    boxes at the C. I*.
. station are proving a great convenience,     The Herald has (ought for
great many things for the benefit of
Cra-nbrook. and the new mail boxes
and free express delivery are among
the results. Publicity "is a great
thing if a paper hus the courage and
judgment  to go at it right.

Ottawa, Nov. 11.—A report from
W. L. MacKenzie King to the secretary of state today says the final
adjustment has been made ot all the
damage claims of tbe Japanese in
Vancouver in connection with th-.-
riots of last September.
Mr. King has awarded damages
totaling nearly eleven thousand dot

was thirteen thousand five hundt-
dollars, but in a number of instances
it was found that the actual loss sustained was considerable less than
that claimed.
The awards were considered satisfactory by the Japanese and a
cheque tor the total amount will be
forwarded hy the finance department.
to Mr. King, and the amount will to
promptly paid to tbe Japanese. This

talk would cut wood and run a store
a good many of the honest poor
would be out of a job, and a good
many fouls would be provided with
profitable, il not honest, employment.
If tlie/e Is anything from which this
old world is suITering today more than
another, it is talk. The affliction
runs the whole gamut, from the chatter of the society noodle to the disgusting ' twaddle of the editorial idiot
lhat sits iu a sanctum and prates of
war with the nonchalance and vivacity of a ball game spectator. We
have ft—this carnival of talk—in
church, in society, in politics, lu business, until a deep, longing comes
over the thoughtful man for some
lodge in tho wilderness," far Irom
ilie sound of its headsplitting din.
The evidence of tbis popular weakness
is everywhere. It is an age of contentions, booms and sensations of
I'Very kind, and tlie danger of being
drawn into tiro vortex ot verbosity
rtaily confronts the sober-thinking
man. As evidenced by the daily
newspaper, it is a world—
Where facts are feigned to tickle
bile ears,
Where good and evil play nt tournament,
\ud end in amity—a world ol lies—
A carnival of     words, where    every
day
Stale falsehoods serve fresh men."
A day of doing is worth a year of
talk; a committee of one that means
business is worth a dozen conventions
of mouth reformers. Heware, more*
r, of the danger that always lurks
'the multitude of words."

SWEETENED WIND
Ihere are a lot of people iu this
world iliat remind une ul the country
swain who brought his sweetheart to
lown to see tho circus. They wandered hand iu hand alung tiro main
street absorbing the wonders of urban life; every window was a miracle
.iml every ojron door an astonishment, Presently they were attracted
in the vicinity of a confectioner's
establishment by the sputtering of
nne of these contrivances that dispense liquid refreshment to weary
teetotallers in the dog days. The
pair paused, and through the window
wntonod ihe dapper young man in the
wtiite cual iis he deftly manipulated
ihe glasses ami faucet for the delectation of his customers. "Say, Sal!''
said the anient knight of the leans,
"lei's trv it!" ln they ambled.
.in.l wiih tlie aii of ii connoisseur tht;
order was given. "Say, Mister,
squirt us out a glass of that ar' li/.-
rin1 stuff," After a preliminary
skirmish as to flavorings, in which
ihe fad was developed that the establishment was out of "onion,"
raspberry syrup was decided upon.
Thu requisite quantity was poured
out, ami ilicu commenced the operation ihui challenged tiie admiration of
hotil Um swain and bis girl. Tbe
faucet was tunrod first this way and
then that until tiro whole glass fairly
ovorflowored with the rich creamy
foam. So absorbed did the spectators become that they forgot eho
purpose ut tlie liquid, and finally saw
ii subside to an inch of pink fluid in
(he ln.i torn of the glass. Witb u
look nf disgust tiro male member of
ihe party put his tumbler on the
marble counter ami said: "Look
here, partner, this is ft t--ke in. This
is not bin' but sweetened wind."
There is a good deal of swwtcued
wiinl about. There ate plenty of
people who try to pass of! smiles for
dollars ami honied words for righteousness. These are tbe people who
move complimentary resolutions and
sn fortb to save their pockets. They
