The largest single enterprise now
under way by any railroad Interests
in America is the building of the
(Inind Trunk Pacific across Canada.
A new transcontinental highway Uiat
will add ..601. mites to a nation's
railway mileage means brain and
brawn. The eastern section of this
mail—that is, the half cast of Winnipeg, which is being constructed as a
national road liy the Canadian government—will cost $,.11,1100 a mile
ami will include such engineering teats
as the crossing of the St. Lawrence
rivet at Quebec with the largest
single-span bridge in the world, and
the overthrow by a tunnelful ot dynamite of a inountain-side at La Tuque, In the nort.iern t}uebec wilderness. Nine hundred miles ot this
seciion are now under contract, one-
fuiii III of whieh has been awarded to
lhe Grain! Trunk Pacific itself, whose
riglil. lo lender was provided by the
terms of charter.
Tlio picturesque part of the new
transcontinental, however, is its
prairie and mountain mileage west of
Winnipeg, ail of which lhe company
is building on its own responsibility,
Iml with government guarantee of its
bowls. Track-laying i.s already under
way in the section between Winnipeg
ami f.liiioiiloii, and 11107 harvest
height will Ik moved over it to meet
the hike boats at Purt Arthur.
In terms of human interest the
huililing of this prairie section means
100 new (owns to be begun within
a your; for there is to be a railway
station every seven miles, and wherever there is a railway station there
will be a town. It means that in
this northern hinterland there is
shortly lo be, is being even now, enacted the great drama that has already made the plains to tho
south, and 40 years ngo the western
stales, a man's land instead of a no-
man's land. The coming of the
lieople Is the sequel to the laving of
the steel.
The course of the new transcontinental across the prairie was pretty
well decided two years ago, the entire route from the Atlantic coast
being chosen through new nnd ns yet
undeveloped country; hut the mountain section, west of Edmonton, was
until only a few months ago a
puzzle A second hunt for the northwest, passage—a land hunt Instead nf
water—had ns its object to lind where
lhe road could most easitv ernss the
There are in all some len nr twelve
points where the Canadian Rockies
ean be crossed. Nature cut these
passes through the mountains nt fairly regular intervals; two have already
been used for rnilwnv routes In the
southern part nf the range, nnd others equally suitable nre spread along
llie mountain line In the nnrth. A
cbnice nt four or five was before Ihn
(lrand Trunk Pacific, and this narrowed rinwn, after its engineers had
examined Ihem nl! and had run their
surveys through every feasible or possible route, to n choice ol two. It.
was tn he eilher the Pine river or
Ibe Yellowhead.
The hunt for .he mountain passage
became exciting. It turned nut to
lie a rnce, for nnnther road with
transcontinental ambitions headed at
Hie same time and in the same direction and with the same end In view.
It was a quiet, dogged, yet spectacular race, as surveyor's faces aiwnvs
nre. The flrand Trunk Pacific won,
ami In November las. filed nt Ottawa complete nlans of a route
thrnuirh the Yellowhead frnm Edmonton to a nniiit. some L. miles on the
oilier side nt the Rockies.
Between the Prince Rnnert that. I,
fo be and the Yellowhead, through
which the transcontinental crosses the
Rockies, Is a tangled wilderness as
vet unopened to settlement, Tt has
lieen thoroughly surveyed, however,
and In February preliminary nlans
were filed for the Pacific grade ol the
rallwav route. On the map the new
Grand Trunk Pacific will show an almost straight line from Wlnnl|ieg,
save fnr Its deflection nn entering tho
Pass, where it turns Rllghtly tn the
smith, crosses .he mountains, and
then goes north again toward the
Fraser river and the const terminus.
The road Is under   contract to build
across    llrilisli   Columbia in     four
But the Yellowhead is the objective
point of two other roads now building across the prairies. The race
which tbe Grand Trunk Pacific won
by reaching that point first was
with the Canadian Northern, whose
line is already bull, and running between the bead ol the lakes and Edmonton. It. is aiming nt the coast
and has tiled plans for a route
through the Rockies. At the eastern
cud ot this future system, which is
the outcome nt the dogged persistence of twn men, Mackenzie and
Mann, a line from Toronto to Sudbury, is built, and there lacks only
lhc link between that point and
I'ort Arthur to give a third road
covering more than half the cnnliii-
Apparently with the intention of
going into every field touched by Its
rival lines, the Canadian Pacific, first
if Canadian Iransconlinentals, Is now
building a new main line northwest
from Winnipeg, the logical motivo of
whirl) is an extension to aud across
the Rockies In the coast by way of
Hie Yellowhead, tlio pass first proposed by the Canadian Pacific 28
years ago, but then abandoned in
favor ot the southern route. For the
time has come now when all of the
rkilronds must tap tho north. There
seems to be every reason why the way
of the Yellowhead should be chosen
in the fact that it is the lowest of
the passes ticrnss the continent divide, being uniy .'...._ feet in place ot
600.1, and that it is tor almost its
entire distance a grade of three-
tenths of one per cent, with only a
few miles at one per cent.
Some of tlie largest engineering
undertakings in the west are proposed
on lines already iu operation. The
Canadian Pacific has planned an cx-
tensivo betterment scheme this year,
which Involves the construction ot
one nf the largest railroad bridges In
the world and the reduction of the
grade in Uie Rockies by tunneling. In
the Crows Nest section, among the
foothills of lhc Rockies, n viaduct of
a mile in length, carried on steel
lowers 300 feet high, will straighten
and shorten the road, and will cut
nut a number of trestle bridges.
Farther into the Rockies proper, the
section between Field and Hector, the
most difficult section on the whole
effect, within the next few years.

While Pass railways are miners'
roads, existing because of and tor the
sake ot the numerous gold-mining
camps ot the Yukon country, but
tourist travel is being encouraged,
and in the summer months an Increasing number ot sightseers are doing the far north via the rail.
Diagonally across tho northwest,
cutting tlie great new land on the
bias, will go a line now under project, whose ambitious purpose is to
connect Dawson and Winnipeg. Survey parties have been quietly at
worta, and a goodly portion of tbe
total 1700 miles is said to be already
routed. Such a line, traversing the
northern prairies, the Peace river district and the Yukon mining country
would hold an unique place among the
railroads of the continent, and would
involve, at its northern end, some
tremendous engineering problems. Tbo
interests behind this project have
been kept somewhat secret, but It is
believed lhat Ihey are American and
associated with the Northern Pacific.
Another road lo the Yukon has filed lis plans with the Canadian railway commission, involving a straight
north route along the coast Irom
Vancouver to Dawson. The surveys
through British Columbia territory
show immense cuttings and tunnels,
with heavy bridging. It is altogether likely lhat when this rnad is built
it will he hy or fnr the Grand Trunk
Pucifie, in whose interest is thought
to he n hill introduced this year at
Washington, authorizing the construction uf a rnad from Skagway, in
Alaska, to a pnint at or near to
'rinco Rupert, the Grand Trunk Pacific terminus.
Fnr a year past survey work bas
lieen under way on two roads from
the southwestern coast ot Alaska to
tbo copper district of the Interior.
One was being financed by London
capitalists, representing the same interests as those behind the White
Pass St Yukon railway, nnd the ather
by the Ouggenhelms and J. P. Morgan. The two routes were such as
would closely parallel each other, and
wliile entailing Immense double ex-
pinse, would open up practically tbe
same country. The promoters have
therefore consolidated, under Guggenheim control, and one road Is now
to bo built, Instead ot two. It will
probably run Irom Catella. a seaport
with good terminal facilities, In to
the heart of the White river copper
country and, possibly, into the
Canadian Yukon. About 400 miles
of the road will he built this year,
and the same man who built the
White Pass * Yukon road Is engineering It.
One more railway enterprise comes
from the top corner ot the continent,
nnd It exceeds them nil In spectacular
bigness and daring. It goes by the
nnme of tbo Trans-Atlantic-Stberla
railway, a phrasing that at once explains Its route and indicates the immensity nf its undertaking. In the
first week ot the present year a survey party, with dog-teams drawing
their supplies, left Dawson tor White
river, and a fortnight later began the
initial wnrk of mapping out a rallwav
route. The general route to be followed Is along the White river and
down the Tannna valley, picking up
tho incidental trallic of the exist!,-.,:
mining camps and heading Inward
| Bchring strait. Tho plan of tho men
behind this project is to establish a
.route trom Alaska to Siberia, ncrosi
,tho strait, and to build an extension
connecting with the great Russian
I system. If th* project ever gets so
I far, the American, Canadian and
I Russian governments will be called
'upon to lend a band. It ts a hold
scheme, but whether the Siberian end
'of it Is over carried nut or not it is
practically certain tbat some portion
I ot the Alaskan section will be built
shnrt.lv, opening up a mining region
ul unknown riches and another great
section to settler and trader.

The Westward Ho, the new

The story is told that a man died
and when he landed at the pearly
gales Si. Peter asked him what
church he belonged to. "Tho fact
is," saul the spirit of the man, "fori
many years I have not affiliated
witli any church, hut I have been a
booster in western Canada for all of
that lime, and this is the first tune
iu my history Uiat you could call me
a dead one." As the gates were
thrown open, St. Peter said: "Come
right in, the booster is entitled to
the best in heaven as well as thu
best on earth."
'Ihe mob that attacked the Japan-
a* and Chinese in Vancouver last
Saturday did the very worst thing

There arc too many fakirs coming
to Cranhrook these days and getting
money from unsuspecting individuals
hy selling worthless articles on the
streets. Tlie eity ordinance provides
for a license fee of only $5 for such
individuals, and it seems lhat $__a
would lie none too tittle. Tbe town
would he far better off without them,
ml if they do come make them pay a
good price for their work. Another
thing that seems hardly fair is for
tent shows to be permitted to hold
llieir show just outside of tbe eity
limits, where they do not have to
pay any license. There should be
some way by which these institutions
should he made to come through witti

TH B stringency in the money  market has affected the financial standing of all
people in business.   The banks of Canada and the United States are curtailing
credits and shortening loans.   Hill & Co. are no exception to this rule.    They
must raise money to meet the demands of their bankers.   That means that they
Must Raise the Cash
And there is only one way to do it.   That is to sacrifice profits and get below the cost
mark.   To accomplish this we will put on the greatest Sale ever known in the Kootenays,
Saturday, August 31st,
and there will be no let up in cutting prices until the demands of our bankers are
satisfied. We have worked hard to build up our business, but the condition of the money
market and our bank account make this sacrifice necessary to protect our interests.
Watch for our prices in the windows and on our counters. The cash must come, and the
way to get the cash at this stage is to give the people such bargains that they will feel
that they must buy. If this Sale is not satisfactory during the coming week, the knife
will go deeper, as we must raise the cash or lose all. We will not be undersold by anyone
and we invite comparison.   We have to-day the largest stock of
Ladies' and Men's Furnishings, Boots and
Shoes, and Furniture
In fact, anything that a lady or gentleman can wish for in the line of Wearing Apparel or
House Furnishings. We realize now that we have bought too much on credit, forgetting
that there is a day of reckoning. But our bankers have reminded us, hence our chase for
the almighty dollar.
We quote you a few prices as follows, which will largely govern :—
MEN'S  SUITS, reg. $18.00, will sell for    - - - $9.75
" " "    $12.50, " ... $6.50
" " •'   $10.00, " - - $5.50
BOY'S   SUITS,   reg. $8.00, will sell for     - - - $4.25
"    $6.00, ..... $3.35
The prices of Boots and Shoes will be cut in two. Men's Hats also to be sacrificed.
In fact everything in our store will be offered at prices never before quoted In the
Kootenay.   This Sale must appeal to the economical buyer.   Call and be convinced.

seen at its worst, many farmers having been obliged lo plow down their
crops, but only in a few localities.
A greatly increased area under wheat
anil a good average crop in Uie parts
not damaged, will bring the total
yield close to that of last year. A
late seeding was followed by an unfavorable summer ami even dining the
commencement of the harvest the
weather was not all that could Ih*
desired. However, during lhe last
few days' Ihe climatic conditions havn
in the southern extremity ol
the province taken a change
lor the better and now
the farmers arc working every
available lior.se and every available
binder practically night and day to
get tlm wheat cut before the early
fall frosts lower the grade. With the
increased price of wheat for this year
over last Hie farmers will receive
omethlng like 100 million dollars for
Iho wheat crop of 1907 from the
provinces of Manitoba, Alberta nnd
Saskatchewan. In the newly formed
province ol Alberta the wheat is a
record yield and less than 1 per cent

Speaking of the country Mr. Rollins
says that there is ipiite a lot nf very

purposes, This season there have
been hundreds of men iu that country

II. L. Stephens, the well known
Calgary hotel man, is iu tbe eity

'.isMing friends. Mr. Stephens says
that business iu Calgary has been
unusually good in every line for thu
past six in.mills ami that there is
every reason to believe that the city
' will experience great growth ami
prosperity during tbo coming decade.
Referring to the bard storm that
swept over the province since he left
home, Mr. Stephens says that in
some localities Hie crops may he
badly damaged, but that the increased acreage this year and the fact
that in Southern Alberta and in
many portions of tbe northern part
tho wheat was cut before Ibe storm,
will give to tho province a most successful agricultural year.

A traveler who maW*s trips thnl
kei'p him away from homo four ami
five months al a time, having a territory that extends front ocean to
ocean, was in lown last week and
found out- that be was mil of a particular brand of smoking tobacco, lie
was lamenting bis misfortune tn a
fellow drummer, and was nsked if ho
had 1riivl to get anv iu Cranhrook,
"J3osh, what is tbe use of trying to
get Hait hi a town of Ibis size. Tho
tobacco I smoke Is a costly Imported
brand. I will have to wait until I
get to Vancouver." Ho was advised
to go up street, to Mighlon's and lo,
and behold he found just what he
Wanted, and some other tobacco as
well. "There Is the best stock ol
tobaccos 1 have seen since I left
Montreal," said the traveler when
be returned to lhe hotel. I don't see
how he makes It pav in a town like
Ihis." "It is because he carries such
a Aim* stock that lie makes it pay,"
remarked a man standing near, "f he
people of Cranbiook and this 'district demand the best and Sam Mlghton gives them the host in the tobacco Une."
The Nat Heiss shows had a hard
time of il at Fornlu on Tuesday when
the big storm came up. One of Uie
Lents ami considerable of Llieir mag-
uiliceiii scenery was destroyed h\

snow ou Hie other tents was so thick

.lohn F. Cbummings, of Fort

Sunday afternoon in attempting to

Into a deep hole tbat makes the
place so dangerous. No one saw
bim drown, but his horse, dog aud
coat was found a short ways down
tin* stream by parties who bad been
told by bis wife Uiat she thought it
strange that her husband bad not
returned as he hatl promised to hu
hack iu a short time. A searching
party was formed ami the banks of

below Hie island but no trace of the
body was discovered, On Momlay
with dynamite and drag hooks, everything possible was done by tbe citizens lo recover tlie body Irut without
success. Yesterday a numlier of
Indians wero secured and they will
make a tlmrough search for somo
miles below where tlie accident occurred.
Tin* deceased leaves a wife and     mir

iias cast a gloom over tlie town of

favorite. John Reid, of this town,

of the deceased, as soon as be
heard of the accident went lo Foil

A taste for good reading has long
been observed as one of the most effectual safeguards to young men
against vice and crime. Iu the first
place, it serves tn givf employment in
those hours of leisure and freedom
from work which would lie likelv
otherwise to be worse than wasted.
To the ynung man who lias no taste
lor reading, the evening hours become
londed wilh temptation. It is tire-
Rome to sit moping hy the stnve, and
he naturally drifts tn tho-street or
the end I aide. There be finds others like himself, with vacant hours
to while away and thus grow up
those habits and associations whieh

'I'he statement is made, and uuiil il
is disprove!! il should be accepted as
Hue, that the linn of contractors
who have undertaken lhe lirst construction work awarded by the Grand
Trunk Pacilic un the Pacilic coast do
nut employ cither Japanese or Chtin-
esc. These men iu lhe lasl leu years
have done three-fourths of the railway building in Briiish Columbia and
much of what was done between Winnipeg and Calgary. They are practical men and not given lo do anything
because of sentiment, lf ihcy build
railways wilh white labor exclusively
il is because while labor is the best
and the cheapest. ■ What this linn
do, other railway contracting funis
can also do. If llns'firm can undertake to build the west end ot the
Grand Trunk Pacific's mountain section, the middle and the east end of
the same road should lie awarded to
contractors holding the same views
on the employment of white labor.
• * •
Were the 700 miles of tbe Grand
Trunk Pacilic in British Columbia
built hy wliile labor, it would mean
tbat when tbe work is completed
hundreds of white men would remain
the country through which the road
runs, to engage in prospecting and
milling and farming and stock raising
and fruit growing. The white builders nf ihe road would be the pioneers
from which the road would get its
lirst traffic, and their success woulil
nltracl thousands of others who are
looking for homes and business opportunities tin a country where     tho
Iimalic conditions are such as mak«

Tbe building uf Ihe Grand Trunk

ire merchants or mechanics who can
successfully compete with white mur-
,-hauls and mechanics. When Chinese
and Japanese ate not employed iu a
community or in a country, there
Joes not seem lo lie any great dilli-
ttilty .in getting plenty of white labor
of all kinds. It is only in communities where there are Chinese aud
Japanese that there is difficulty in
gelling labor. Tlie races will not
mix. Japanese aud Chinese merchants and professional men do not
mix with white merchants and professional men in tlie clubs ut Victoria and Vancouver; then why should
free while mechanics and laborers bo
compelled to mix with Japanese and
Chinese con tract coolies in mills and

so, in order lo live'/ Then if they
are, conditions are not as Ihey should

Fun eity is located on Stephen
avenue between Second and Fourth
streets. For the past week without
auy ostentatious display, the minions
of Nat Relss worked on laying tho
foundations for the great carnival i
which opened yesterday.
Long before fl o'clock last night between 7,000 aud 8,000 people were in
the enclosure, a start which augurs
well for the success uf Nat Relss',
shows during the week. I
I And he certainly deserves it. To
move scenery, tents and properties
around from town to lown In so
short a time is in itself a creditable
task but lo handle over two hundred
performers and have everything in
readiness for them in each town ihey
visit shows an executive ahilily
which speaks for itself.
The shows ate ;t lair iu themselves.
There is everv conceivable form of
amusement from the Ferris whirl to
baby iuciihatois. Tbe big one ring
circus is the leading attract ion ,,f Hie
carnival. Kor four-hits ynu can
spend a couple of delightful hours
watching the foolish pranks of the
clowns or the clever performance ol
Madame Wanda's troupe of F.ugllsh
coach dogs.
The circus in itself is a show which
Calgarians do not often have a
chance to see. There are contortionists of extraordinary skill, horizontal bar nml aerial trapeze artists
who,, when it comes to a showdown
could enlighten many of the so-called
stars a wrinkle or two on tho bar.
Five original and funny clowns
never let, a moment slip by unless
Ihey have tlie audience convulsed with
laughter. These are just a mere
tithe of the feats provided for his
pal tons by Nat Reiss in this big
tent and to judge by the audiences at
both performances tbe circus will
prove a popular favorite among the
younger generation.
Side shows, clean and clever, meet
you on every hand. Here we have
"Aga," the beautiful. "Tbe Eseapo
Krom Sing Sing," a very realistic
production under canvas, was another
head liner.
But the erackerjack of the sideshows is Lunetta, the Hying lady.
Hundreds went to sec this phenomena"
and came away mystified. With apparent ease a woman is made to fly
and pose in tbe air at the will of the
mesmerist. This show was the subject of much argument. Theories
were expounded but according to latest advices no one bas so far succeeded in unravelling the mystery.
At the sign of the Red Dome is a
sure stopping place for all lovers of
vaudeville. If you want lo sec some
expert step dancing you'd he in the
right place. Among the many bright
numbers on this programme are two
juveniles, the Pierce sislers. The
youngest of these, a girl ot four, already shows unmistakable signs of being a ton notcher In the future.
"Dixieland," a transported cotton
plantation, is worth more than a cursory visit. If you want to hear
good singing, see good dancing, hear
(lever jokes, just go and watch the
real southern niggers perform. They
hold the palm so far in the west nnd
their show is one of the most delightful ot Hie aggregation.
"Bnliy Incubators," seems a sort ot
n joke when you read the sign on Mm
tent. But investigate and remember
lhc old adage, "Live and learn." A
sipiare box arrangement with numerous accessories, tubes and fancy nt-
rangements catch Hie eve. The faint
indistinct voice of a child Is heard
nml peering cautiously Into the square
Im»x a baby about the size of a
"Teddy" bear wriggles am) snualls
Instructive as well as amusing Is
the glass blowers' tents. Here you
can see engines made entirely from
glass and worked hy steam, operate.
Vou can witness the peculiar operation of blowing glass and the making
of all kinds of ware.
The mirror maze, the bioscope nnd
countless other altraellons are spread
luridly before your gaze. The bioscope, depicting the train robber?,
perhaps claims precedure to the others.

A shocking tragedy took place at
Michel on Sunday evening last, the
Ivlctlm being Angeto Orlando, an
, Italian about 85 years of age. The
case appears to he one of murder of
| the most foul variety.    The Italian
Isoeiely was holding one o! theur
usual dances In the hnil In lower
town and n nttmher ot English people
were in attendance. The latter
rommenced to quarrel among them-
I selves over some lamily matters and
,1'at. Mullan, R wcfll known miner of
Michel was put out of Hie hall on
account nf improper conduct.
Ue proceeded to his hoarding house
and secured a revolver belonging to a
Iroom mate. In a lowering passion
,ho returned lo Hie hall and demanded
admit tnnee. Being refused he drew
, liis gun. Orlnndo, who is ot a very
excitable nature leaped In front, ot the
door at Hie time nnd received a hn'Iet
in the region ot Hie stomach. Tlie
bullet was Intended fnr another, It
rumors regarding Hie cause ol Hie
(juarrel are to ho given crpdeme. Orlando was nn entirely disinterested
party.    Those who were present   re
fuse to talk and it is difficult to give
a coherent narative of the affair.
Orlando was taken to the hospital
at once but in spite of tbe constant
care of Dr. Saunders, assisted by Drs.
Corsan and Higgins, the poor fellow
passed away on Wednesday morning.
The missle of death, which was a 3_!
calibre bullet, was found Monday
morning lodged against the ribs ou
the left side.
Mullan escaped immediately after
the shooting and so far no trace id
him has lain found. He is an experienced bill man and Is familiar
with tbe surrounding country,
i The deceased Italian has been a
resident ot Michel for several years
and was a general favorite. He leaves
a widow and three small children in
i the old land.     The funeral took place
i Thursday.
Coroner Bleasdell wenl down to
Michel on Wednesday aud empaneled
a jury to view Ibe remains. Wit
iiesscs will lie examined on September
10, when some surprising evidence will
no doubt be elicited.

(By ,lohu Anderson Jayne.)
You may not be able to distinguish
the man who makes good when ho is
walking down street with thousands
of his fellow citizens. But the moment yon step into the ollice where
ho is employed, the factory in which
he works, the ehureh in which he
preaches or the bedside by which he
practices, you recognize him at once.
He may be a little, insignificant
looking fellow, hut there is a breezy
manner about him that compels attention. He may weigh like a Taft,
but you forget his obesity in his ability to make the wheels go round. Ho
has a swing and a step born only of
accomplishment. He is neither gay,
gaudy nor garrulous. He is neither
sleepy, sloppy nor slimy. He is manly, mannerly and methodical. Ho
knows when', where and why. He has
the happy faculty of arriving at
exactly the right time and place.
When lie lands he lands squarely,
with both feet pointing forward.
The man who makes good is master
of the situation! He is not compelled to ask privileges or make
apologies in order lo hold his posi-
tion. He is not, treated as nn Inferior by those who hold more responsible positions, paying larger
salaries, for these men know that he
is using the usual talents of mankind
for the accomplishment of usual
work. Unusual mental power, undoes   not     equal usual mental
power,     used!     The man who ma*
good  never    whines!     Ho    is never
compelled   to    do the baby  net    or
work the sympathetic racket.
His work speaks for itself. It Is
the testimony of the faithful fidelity
of a conscientious worker.
The man who makes good Is not
content to rest on past accomplishments. Every act of
making      good        Is nn      In
centive to further attempts in the
same direction. The past, thereforo,
gives impetus in the present snd
strength for the davs that are to
The man who makes pood is always In demand. He need not worry about positions. If, through
necessity, he must make a change,
other men In the same line are only
too glad to give him employment.
There is only one class of people who
should be compelled to hunt for work
—those young men who have uot yet
had opportunity to make good and
show thrir worth lo crnplovers who
will appreciate their ability in the
work that is congenial to their
The majority of men who knock
from pillar to post are men who failed to make good In the davs when the
currents of life flowed swiftly in their
Every onee In awhile von hear a
man of sixty nnd upward called to
the superlntendency of some business
establishment, or tendered a position
where brains are required rather Ulan
muscles. Such a call is a living
witness to the truth. In the days of
youth he made good.
When you hear of men complaining
that they have no chance, explaining
tbey are' life's unfortunates, silting
down and letting children support
tbem, you may hang it on your walls
ns a truth thai lliey have wasted life,
j lieen querulous, Insubordinate, iin
1 prncllcnl, or have nnt used their
brains for the men for whom thoy
I worked fn the days of opportunity.
iThere Is no necromancy nhoul llfo!
It proceeds on definite and prescribed
j rules, obeys laws and accomplishes
'practical results. He who obeys
(life's law need not fear the long,
cold, barren and unproductive yearn
between sixty nnd eighty. Take
lime to st tidy the lives of mon who
have not made good! The man who
makes gooii knows thnt tils employer
has a right lo every minute of his
time, his best wnrk, his highest endeavor. He docs not watch the
clock.! He does not dallv! With
him the greatest thing during tho
working hour Is his employer's Interests. The man who works in thai
spirit never fails to mate good.

Abroad Jn* has ncqultttd himself well.
With a sure hand he directed his
course at the colonial conference, and
whether we agree with him or not,
we must ail confess Uitfl be held himself with the dignity, with tho grand
air, and with lhe directness of tho
experienced statesman. In manner,

.shoulders above them iu all that
makes tor statesmanship. In fact,
where in Canada shall we find a
bigger man than Sir Wilfrid?"
