Thc Provincial government has appointed .1. A. Mara and W. Sampson, ol Victoria, and Moses B. Cots-
worth, a well known English actuary, as a commission to investigate
the conditions ol tho civil service
throughout the province. The com-
inissloners have already done a considerable amount ol their work at
tlw coast and aro at present making
Nelson their headquarters, awl Iroiu
that center aro visiting tlie ollloes In
the Kootonays, Tlu-y will next proceed to the Boundary country.
The eniiiinission has no political
signlllcance, Its main duties being lo
look Inlo tin- conditions umler which
each civil service servant is working,
anil lo grade the civil servlro umler
t Ih- civil service act passed lust session.
Atter completing this, a perinanont
ciiininlssiiiii will bo arranged tor,
which will havo absolute control ut
the service.
Appointments will be mado by this
commission Irom thosu wlio pass thc
civil service examinations and promotion will be by merit only. Under
this regime every civil servant will
have an equal chance ol advancement
whether he have political influence or
Boys Irom 16 to 18 years of age
will be encouraged to enter tho service, and the salary will be made attractive with regular increases guaranteed under tho act each year until the maximum grade is reached,
and with it the maximum salary.
In putting such a system into lorce
thc government was naturally bound
to take into consideration those already In the service, many ol whom
have already spent the best yoarB ol
their lives as government employes.
In order that no injustice might be
done be done anyone, the government
appointed the present commission,
which is investigating separately! thc
case ol each employe at every place
visited. Upon the report ol this
commission will depend thc grade ln
which the present employes will be
placed and also the salary each will
receive. The new scale means an Increase in pay Ior a number ol civil
servants, whose services, the commission may consider, entitle thorn to
better pav than they have been receiving. For this purpose the government has provided a lump sum ot
money this vear, which the commission will allot as it sees fit,

The trustees met on Tuesday last
and decided to pay oil the small outstanding account in connection with
the institution. Tho matter ot the
Railway Y.M.C.A. was discussed,
and it was hoped that a hilly
equipped building under those auspices would soon bo an established
tact in Cranhrook, where the need
was very great. Until then the
trustees felt that their duty was to
continue to supply to the best ot
their ability healthy recreation lor
the young peoplo ot this city. A
committee was appointed to make
thc necessary arrangements tor the
coming winter season.
All members ol the Boys' Brigade
who wish to go to camp are requested to send In their names cither to Captain Main, Sub-Captain

(Hy William Whyte   in "Canada-West
Monthly" lor July.
From Cape Breton to Virginia the
original settlers of America lound
themselves in a country ot natural
opulence so great, especially in timber, water and soil that such an
eventuality as exhaustion or even
appreciable impairment never suggested itself. That was only three
hundred and fifty years ago-and less.
They came from a land where thrift
and care had been taught by centuries of experience, but thc old ways
were soon forgotten, and never renewed. Until very lately, thero was
no uneasiness, no economy. On the
contrary, a tremendous incoming
swirl of humanity swept across the
continent after thc eighteenth-sixties, carrying with it thc same recklessness, the same waste, so that
forests have faded, streams have at
some seasons washed hare thc lands
and at others left them parching.
Iron and coal have shrunken to a
known supply sufficient at thc present,
rate of use for not much more than
another hundred vears. Oil and gas
fields once thought perpetual have
died out; and in some of the older I
sections, the soil itself has become
sterile. We have sported with our
resources until thc end of them has
begun to threaten, but we are fortunate in knowing what Is left; and beyond that remainder, we know how
we may bring back out ot nature's
eternal reservoir a restoration of
original opulence to at least thc
most important of thc things we
Tlie conference held at Washington
in February by the United States,
Canada and Mexico was the first
move towards what is hoped will be
a world-wide system of conservation
whereby may be preserved tor each
people tlie best it has for itself, and
the most useful for others. Thc
questions and policies, involved are
stronger than national*boundary lines,
since nature knows nothing about
sueh things, and her stores and
streams underlie or cross them in
sueh a way as to require treat inn.
in the mass and.by the centralized
best judgment of all the peoples,
Tbis first move is therefor of continental scope, and is concerned directly with things that lie at thc
very base of the daily, individual life
and sustenance of everyone living between the two great seas. The governments will deal eventually with
all resources of whatever kind, but
there are two so closely related that
they arc practically one, and on that
one rests more than tm all the others.     I mean Umbcr-and-wnter.
Tbe United States has come to the
edge of a period where distress is
imminent, through - utter Improvidence, and the indulgence ol private
and corporate rapacity in dealing
with tlie natural water supply and
stripping tbe earth ot trees. Canada, with less than a tenth ot the
population, but a greater superficial
area, has been gleefully toddling
along on her own side'of the fence,
swinging her little axe and burning
ber little fires, Just like her hig sister, but without the plenitude of
numerical power to do as yet more
than initial harm. Here is where
Canada may profitably stop and sec
what the big sister has dono with
her resources, and shape Iier own
conduct in ways ol righteousness, accordingly. The timbered area of
what are now Canada ami the United
States was originally about a billion and a quarter acres. Nearly
four hundred and fifty million acres
have been stripped, practically all
within the last fifty years, mostly
witliin Hie last thirty-five. The rale
of destruction has lieen very swift, lt
must he checked.
Thc disturbance ot those natural
arrangements which worked out to a
seasonable equalization of water
supply changed the face ot the immediate basins of thc Mississippi and
the Ohio. No one will ever know
thc money measure of the havoc thus
wrought, as against the personal
gain to thc so-called lumber kings
who caused lt. To check it, and insofar as may be, to restore the old
conditions, the United States has
been obliged to come forward with
the institution of a system of dams
in thc upper reaches oi those rivers,
to govern their flow throughout the
vear. Reforestation and afforestation, both slow processes, have he-
gun, and In time the evil will be
^corrected, bo far as human skill may
go. These are but two of many instances that might he cited. The
Maritime Provinces of Canada could
furnish others, though none so glaring. But an indication ot the tendency in Canada is furnished in the
statement made by W. C. 11. Grimmer,   Surveyor     General    ol New
Brunswick, at tbe annual meeting  ot'   It is estimated that the cost of fur-
the   Canadian    Forestry association, msbing   will     be, approximately, a>
beld in Toronto last February.    Mr
Grimmer   said    then     tliat   timber
limits in  New  Brunswick,  which,   in
1SJIK, were rated at $8*00 per    mile,
were   held    in 1808 at $200 to $500 j
per   mile.       Great   Britain's Royal'
Commission on   Coast Erosion   last
year made a survey ol the timber re-j
sources ot the world, more especially as bearing on  the supply  tor ttie
British    market, which takes   about1
£30,000,000 worth     annually.      The

eastern proviiiees may have much
repair. Thc western have much to
build up. And the west has not been
idle, though perhaps the provinces
have been willing to lean upon the
Dominion government for a good deal
that they might have done or be doing for themselves. The great forests of Canada are northeast anil
northwest of Ontario, and on the
eastern slopes of the Rockies. To
the west of Hudson's Bay and up to
the Arctic shore arc wide sweeps of
land now wooded, and others, boggy
or otherwise un-attractivc to agriculture, where afforestation now would
provide enormous wealth in the future. The Dominion forest reserve:
all lie in the north western provinces. There are twenty-six ot them,
including parks, where timber Is
managed the same as in the reserves
proper, but excluding the eastern
slopes ot the Rockies,' though tho
same management is followed there
also. The work ot creating reserves
is still in progress. Last year tbe
region around Watertown lake in
Soutliern Alberta was examined tor
this purpose, and a recommendation
was made tliat 105 square miles be
set aside. Recommendations have
also been made that U10 square miles
he added to the Spruce Woods reserve
iu Manitoba, 238& square miles to
the pines reserve in* Saskatchewan,
15 square miles to the Beaver Hills
reserve in Saskatchewan, and 102
square miles to the Cypress Hills
reserve in Alberta.
Between Ontario and British Columbia tlie whole west of Canada is
fores-table. The eastern provinces as
noted, arc stirring to repair their
losses ami withhold the axe. His
Excellency Earl Grey, has put his
hand to the work, and gone into cooperation with tlie Forestry association, aad the Department ot Agriculture. At the Toronto convention
referred to, bis lordship urged the
seriousness of tbe case upon the n-
tent ion ot the whole people, and was
not unmindful of the western plains.
Not so long ago, the people of Manitoba were told they could grow no

Lethbridge, Alta., July 13.—
Trouble between thc miners and cual
operators is not over yet. According to the agreement recently signed
matters in dispute regarding differentials in pillar work at thu Hillcrcst
mine, were to lie settled by arbitration. Steps were immediately taken
lo bave the trouble adjusted. The
miners nominated Rev. 11. R. Grant
of Fernie, chairman of the conciliation board of the big strike. The
operators accepted tho nomination.
Mr. Grant made his investigation
and gave a decision that upheld the
contention of the company rather
more than it did that of the men.
Although the agreement states that
each party is bound to accept tlie
award ot the arbitrator, tbo district board of No. 18 met at Frank
yesterday and refused to accept the
award given by Mr. Grant. ' The
trouble in Hillcrcst is therelore
bad as ever and as thc act ot thc
hoard for tlte miners is a violation of
the agreement recently signed, it may
Ire that thc whole agreement may bo
set aside.

Cranbrook is the Industrial and commercial center ol
this District, its chief Industries being :—
Rnilroading. Sash and Donr Works.
Lumbering. Mixed Farming.
Mining. Fruit Growing.
Smelting of Minerals.
With the utilization of nearby waterfalls, for thc production of electrical energy fur manufacturing purposes, Cranbrook will naturally become a manufacturing center of great
importance and the cultivation of the surrounding agricultural land will ensure to iis citi/.ens, at reasonable prices,
those products of farm, orchard and dairy at present being
Imported from the Slates and other outsidopolnts, simply
because we bave not got the peoplo to grow the stuff here.
In this district we have eighteen saw mills, employing in
the neighborhood of 1250 men.
Railroad shops employing men.
Divisional point on Crows Nest Pass Railway, Total
payroll $65,000 monthly.
Two sash and door factories and planing mills.
A cigar factory.
A steam laundry?
During 100!) new buildings will be erected to the value
of $250,000, wliich will include $00,01)0 new brick and stone
public school, (foundation commenced); a $20,000 bank building, $10,000 Masonic Temple and many lino residences, besides
extensions to the shops and round houses of the Canadian
Pacilic Kailway to the extent of $100,000. The City of
Cranbrook contemplates spending $10,000 on street improvements alone.
There are a number of projected lines of railroad, with
Crnnbrook as their destination.
The Kootenay Central Railway has a charter for a railway running up this valley connecting with the main line
of the Canadian Pacific Railway at Golden—which will pass
through an ideal fruit and mixed farming country, also
abounding in silver-lead and copper mines and large forests
of timber.
The Crawford Hay Railway bas a charter for a road to
run up the SI. Marys Valley, west to Crawford Hay, whioh
would give Cranbrook and East Kootenay direct communication with Nelson, with only a very -short passage on the
Kootenay Lake, and would open up a rich mining, lumbering
and farming section of tbe country.
As a divisional point, Criinhrook is assured indefinitely
of being the headquarters of all railway men working norlh,
south, east and west,
The climate of East Kootenay is, to say the least, ideal,
aud is recognized by all who euinc here, either to stay or
In going through, to be   something unsurpassed in Canada.
We have fuur distinct seasons.
Spring opens up about the middle ot March, with beautiful sunny weather, though there is a cold snap in the air.
The snow leaves the open land about this time, and hangs
a little longer umler tbe timber. Ploughing can be commenced about lhe heginning of April, and the growth in thc
ground begins about. May 1st.    Spring rains arc frequent.
Summer is hot, hut there is nearly always a light
breeze, and the heat is not oppressive. Tbe rainfall is
light, about 15 in. to 20 in. on the average all thc year
round, including snow fall. .Inne is our wet month, July
August and September, beautiful weather.
Winter commences about the beginning of December, the
first snow fall coming about tho middle of the month;
generally there is a cold snap before Christmas, and another
in February, lasting in each case about a week; but though
coltl, the air is dry und no wind. There is good sleighing
all winter, from aliout December Ifith to March 1st. This
district is particularly recommended by the medical profession as verv healthy, particularly for any disease ot a
pulmonary nature.
Most decidedly il has, and ils own farmers and producers
cannot even supply the local demand.
Imports into the country may be conservatively estimated as follows :
Produced hero.
Eggs     h ,1)11(1 eases      300    cases
Cheese   70,0(10 pounds  none pounds
Butter 208,000 pounds  4,500 pounds
Ham, Bacon, otc.800,000 pounds      200 pounds
Lard  150,000 pounds  10,000 pounds
Beef     0,000 bead     1,500     head
Pork     5,000 head        800     bend
Apples   15,000 boxes        100     boxes
Potatoes     1,500 tons      100     tony.
This district can supply all lhc above, having everything
necessary to produce them: climate, water, soil, area,
range. It only requires the, people to come in and raise
Fruit is largely imported every year from the United
States, as the quantity at present grown in this district is
limited to a dozen or so orchards only, and whilst these
are producing well, it will he some time before those now
being planted will be bearing. Fruits of all kinds have heen
grown here with great success anil fruit growing is beyond
the experimental stage. The Kast Kootenay market is
growing larger every day. Population is increasing in tho
city and district, and tho farmer and wholesaler have an
additional market to cater io each year. Thc East Kootenay market extends throughout Alherta and as (ar east as
Winnipeg, Man., and il will be impossible to ever dream of
satisfying the vast Prairie Provinces, and the Crows Nest
Pass with any of the commodities which we produce, especially fruit. 'The enormous eoal fields of thc Crows Nest
Pass will take all we can grow and never feel the effects of
It In their market, nnd as our production increases this demand will increase threefold. There Is coal enough
there to last for thousands of years, shipping at the rale of
5000 tons per diem, and they have no land capable of growing any produce, and East Kootenay District being the
closest producing country, it must necessarily be able to
quote the lowest price and capture the trade.
All ties for   supplying the   C.P.R.   for tbe districts of
Western Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and Eastern B.C.
are made in   this vicinity,   making an earning capacity  ot
$500,000 per annum.
The finest strawberries iu Western Canada are produced
iu uud around Crunbrook. All kinds of fruit can be raised
without the least difficulty. The day will come when thu
supply ol fruit tor tits Crows Nest Pass Coal Fields and the
great prairie market ot the Northwest will depend entirely
on the Kootenay District.
Apple trees were planted In East Kootenay as lar as
25 years ago ami since then, at different times, other orchards have been plants*, with thc result that we have, all
over East Kootenay, orchards with trees ot different ages,
producing magnificent apples, plums, cherries and pears.
They all do well. Small fruits, such as raspberries, currants uud gooseberries are grown In abundance.
Apples that have so tar been tried and tbat have proved
a complete success are :
Wealthy. Yellow Transparent.
Snow. King of Tompkins Co.
Duchess of Oldenburg. Grimes' Golden Pippin.
Red Astrakan. Mcintosh Red.
Russian Transparent, Jonathan.
Gravenstcin. Wagner.
Blenheim Orange. Northern Spy.
Flemish Beauty. Bartlett.
Yellow Egg. Peach Plum.
Numbers of orchards throughout the district and around
Cranhrook will give evidence of successful production from
the above varieties.
Land can be acquired with or without irrigation.

This must not mislead you for the thermometer bas
dropped to 40, but it is rare.
Seeding of spring wheat as well as thc sowing ot other
crops depends entirely on thc opening of spring, as it is
earlier some years than others. It is usually commenced
about the 1st of April and fall wheat about the middle of
August. Fall wheat is grown quite extensively and this is
looked upon as an ideal fall wheat country, the usual yield
being about 30 bushels to the acre.
Thc vegetables produced in this district in quality and
quantity arc exceptionally good. Ten tons of potatoes per
acre is an average crop. Sugar beets have given remarkable results and this could readily be made one of tbe
staple industries ot this district. Hay makes a great product, as it fetches so good a price, and a large tonnage is
grown in this district. On account of thc large lumbering
operations carried on here, a great quantity has to be shipped into the country.
This is, besides an excellent stock raising country, there
being so large a free range, supplied with lakes and fine wild
feed. Sheep have been brought in during recent years, and
on account of the success met with, there is likely to be a
greater interest taken in tbe raising of this stock from
now on.
East Kootenay may be aptly described as a triangular
valley, with tlte International Boundary as its base, and
bounded thereby on the South; by the Alberta boundary on
the East and by the Selkirk Range on the west. It is tbe
first fruit bearing section of British Columbia reached after
leaving the beautiful plains of Alberta. The country is
a park-like wuoded country, and generally speaking a buggy
can be driven through the timber almost anywhere, un
each side of thc valley is a great range of the Rocky Mountains, which rise steeply from their base upwards. From
the base the laud runs east and west in level terraces,
dropping by degrees until the level ot the Kootenay River,
which runs north and south through the center ot tbe
valley. These terraces constitute tho bench lands, and are
intcrcoursed with streams and creeks, upon which beaver
bave worked extensively in the past, forming rich hay land
of loamy soil in places, which are now nearly all occupied
as mixed farms, growing hay, fail wheat, fruit, etc. On the
sides of the larger rivers running through this district are
largo areas of bottom land, clear to a great extent, and
partly covered with a growth ot poplar and willow. These
make rich hay producers and are sub-irrigated from, the
river seepage. The majority ot the land in this district,
however, is thc bench land, the best and richest of which is
slightly wooded and now being cleared rapidly all over the
district. Wherever timber is found, a good sub-soil can be
looked for; the soil is a rich loam, the product of ages ot
decaying vegetable matter, and a small percentage of clay.
It is close-grained, yet very loose and loamy when worked;
underlying this soil is a very deep stratum of gravel
cemented together with a glacial moraine. This is impervious to moisture and assists the top soil to retain Its
moisture. These bench lands are generally slightly; sloping,
making thc undcr-drainage conditions all that could be desired. This land can be cleared and made ready for
ploughing at an average cost of (rom $30.00 to $60.00 per
acre, dependent upon the size and quantity ot the stumpB.
The hest crops have been raised from these bench lands, and
only very exceptionally has a year gone by when irrigation
has been found necessary. However, there is plenty of
water for this process and many irrigation systems are now
going in.
Thc wild products of this soil consist of four varieties of
native grasses, namely, wild timothy, red top, bunch grass
and vetch or pea vine. These grasses grow thickly on the
ground and in many places arc more than knee high. They
grow abundantly under thc timber, but it has been proved
that nfter thc timber has been cut down, the bunch graps
grows up stronger, forcing any weeds or weak timber grasses
away, killing them altogether. Wild cherries, strawberries,
sarvi sherries, huckleberries and raspberries also thrl-'o on
this soil.

The Auxiliary will lie a decided advantage to tlte order, and judging bv
the selections made Ior officers it is
already an assured success. The follow is thc list ol ollicers:
Mrs. W. H. Rowan—Mistress.
Mrs. M. T. Acton—Vice-Mistress.
Mrs. .1. B. Hall-Past-Mistress.
Miss A. Hodnett—Secretary.
Mrs. 0. N. Parker—Treasurer.
Mrs. .1. E. Walsh—Conductress.

Mrs. I). A. McLean—Outer Guard.
Mr. F. D. Patton—Councilman.
II. Cosgrove, ol the Spokane Interstate fair.
Succinctly, the rules are: That
airships to tlie number oi at least
live shall contest each alternoon ot
thc week, .September 20 to 25, lot an
entire purse ol $ 2500. For tho
best ascension each day $150 will be
given, ascension to lie lietwecn 2 to
U0 p.m., and $100 will lie divided
equally between all other contestants. For tlie longest flight Ior any
form „t "heavier-than-air" machine,
$500 will be given, and $500 more Ior
'-'dirigible balloon." Entries to
tin- longest flight ot any form ol
close August 15th.
Contestants may obtain luliet particulars and may sign a bin-dime race
agreement , liy application to Secretary Cosgrove. Tliere are enough
contestants secured already to insure
good races, but thc lair management
desires more it they may Im obtained,
in or without the inland empire.
These races will take place daily,
while the harness and running races
arc pulled oil on thc track and wWle
tin- best purely vaudeville programme
seen in tin- liiland Empire may ho
viewed trom Mi,- grand stand. The
Spokane Interstate lair oilers these
things simply to increase thc average
daily attendance of last year ol twenty-five thousand.
Strobcl's air ship made a hit with
the visitors at the Spokane Interstate fair last year. It was only a
just and lair conclusion. Thc aeronaut made good. The airship made
ascensions every afternoon at thc lair
grounds and voyaged into Spokane
and returned, which the lair management had not promised to the public.
But the opportunity lor a demonstration ol the possibilities ol aeronautics w-as gladly seized upon by
the lair management, which has appropriated this year $2500 lor airship contests. For two hours und a
halt every afternoon there will Ih- ascensions and contests for duration ol
(light between nol less than live airships. And there may be cranky
airs-hips in the contest. Tlio best
designers til steam,yachts turn ont
promised world-beaters that prove to
lie "cranky." It Is not with thc expectation that auy airship cutciilt in
the contests at the lair grounds will
prove "cranky," that the lair management oilers the awards that* cover,
iH-sid-s a purse ol $150 tor Iln, victorious airship, daily, $100 Is lo lie
divided equally between the unsuccessful airships. Amongst exhibitors ol
a new branch ol invention, the pulm
may go only lo one; but others have
bi-en to expense ami trouble, ami lhe
fair management desires that no contestant may lose money.
The airship races in one sense, nre
vaudeville attractions. It Is their
spectacular nature that appeals to
tlie crowds, and vaudeville is what
the modern lairs nt class, here and in
the east, arc liirnishing along with
their exhibitions of industries ami
their horse races that aro not less
valuable. But the airship contests
have, also, a deeper purpose. What a
lair management oUcrs—as ln Spok-1
anc next September—ns an attrac-j
tion to the thinking and unthinking
alike may bo to our children an ordinary sight.
But -there will be tun in the contests that open September 20th. No
air-skimming ship is barred by thej
race rules. Hot air or gas, or the '
aeroplane; all arc admissible. Count,
Zeppelin and the Wright brothers aro,
not hatred. Neither is tho airship ol
backyard construction barred. There ■
are race rules that may be obtained .

Keep on boosting Cranbrook. It
is a good thing to boost at any time
uud especially at this time.
More people nre stopping nt Cranbrook this year lhan ever belore.
Why is it? There must lie something in Cranbrook and the district
if the people take such an interest in
it. Take last year and thc years
before, there wile very tew people
who came to this town to look tor
land, hut now il is an every day
occurrence. The reason is plain.
Cranbrook and South East Kootenay

coming people.
John Houston hns sold out his interests in Prince Rupert, nnd stated
that he would gn tn Old Mexico to
spend thc rest of his lite. Well,
John made a record for himself in
the north Innd, and in tlie last issue
of his paper he said what he thought
of his friends and his enemies—heavy
on the enemies. It was a peach ot
nn issue nnd will be remembered tor
many a day hy some of the politicians of this district.
There arc rumors of an election in
this province this tall. Well, that
might be, for thnsr- in charge of thc
affairs of thc province are shrewd
politicians. This has been a great
year for British Columbia, and
"Dick" McBride stands high with
the people. Thnt is what makes
votes and the fact that a man is a
Liberal or a Conservative don't
count for much In a ense of tbis
kind. In a Dominion election there
Is a matter of principle at stake
that does not reach to the voter's
pocket, hut in a provincial election
every man Is looking out for himself.
Thnt is   what    Is going to make n
difference   this  year if there is     an
If thc United States would have a
;anc Fourth it would set thc people
of that country crazy.
There is a big huilding going up
here in lhe shape of a new school
house, antl it should be a monument
lo the progressive nature ot the
people of this city.
Yes, the bananas arc all right. Thc
stalks are too small for thc fruit

Not alone the farm home cither, but
all the bouses in tbe land. Learn
inch child's nature, and then work
somo home charm to keep him in
your circle.
Of all places, praise should be
most lavishly used in the family
eirele. Mow mnny of us keep all our
words of kindness for strangers, for
thoso in whom wc have not one
spark of vital interest; and to tho
hearts dependent upon us for sympathy and appreciation, have scarcely
ono cheery word, If wc are so nig-
pirdly in the expenditure of the
sweet charities of life that we cannot
squander commendations on tbo home
folks and strangers too, by all means
let the homo folks come'in first for
llieir share.
Parents oftentimes wonder who or
what has ruined their boys. They
havo been in school every day, but
the teacher either docs not teach
them any lessons of morality or else
his teaching is a failure. The truth
is, the hoys are on tho street from
tbo timo school doses until late at
night. Thc street corner is the best
place in thc world for teaching vice,
profligacy and crime. Nearly all tbe
had language and idle, vicious habits
uf hoys are taught on the street at
late hours of the night. Teachers
may he able to accomplish a little
in counteracting these evil influences,
but mueh of their labor is in vain until parents co-operate with them in
keeping their hoys off the street.
It is a proverbial saying among all
women that husbands have no adequate idea of the work which a housekeeper must do, and consequently aro
careless of the extra work they make
for her. Would this bo so in thc
next generation if every mother
would begin with her little boys and
touch Ihem to be orderly with all
their belongings, and to wait on
themselves? Not only this, but
teach them to help mother in every
possible way; to keep tbe wood box
filled with wood and the water pail
with water; to save mother's tired
feet hy going upstairs and down cellar for her? Let him put up the
clothes line, turn the wringer and
empty live tubs tor her on wash-day
as soon as he is old enough. He
will be proud enough to think that he
is growing strong enough to do these
things better than mother. Be
very sure that you show your appreciation of every, helpful act, and
let him see that you look to him for
A woman, whom her husband used
frequently to scold, went to a cunning man to inquire how she might
cure him of his barbarity. tnu
sagacious sooth-saycr heard her complaint; und, after pronouncing some
hard words, and using various gesticulations while he filled a phial with
colored liquid, desired her, whenever
her husband was in a passion, to take
a mouthful of the liquid and keep it
in her mouth for five minutes. The
woman quite overjoyed at so simple
a remedy, strictly followed the counsel which was given her, and by her
silence escaped the usual annoyance.
The contents of the bottle being at
lust expended she returned to the
cunning mau and anxiously begged to
have another possessed of the same
virtue. "Daughter," said the man,
"there was nothing in the bottle but
hrown sugar and water. When your
husband is in a passion, hold your
tongue, and my life on it, he will not
scold you in the future."
Ue careful how you speak of a woman's character. Think how many
years she has been in building it, of
the toil and privation endured, ot tbe
wounds received, and let no suspicion follow their actions. The purity
of woman is the salvation of the
race, the hope of tuture greatness,
tlie redemption ot man. Wipe out
her purity aud man sinks beneath thc
wave of despair, with no star to
guide his lUe into a channel ot safely. Think then hetore you speak,
and remember that the hog can root
up the fairest flowers that ever grew,
so the vilest man can ruin the prettiest woman's character.
The perception of beauty, dormant
iu the babe, is easily awakened with
llu; other growing facilities. The
kindergarten teacher's efforts in this
direction are constantly bearing
fruit, hut let a word be given to
mothers who havo not bad a kindergarten training.
Gather about your children a tew
beautiful objects; talk about them;
let tbe children come, as tbey will
unconsciously., under their influence;
let beautiful ideas und Images grow
into their lives. Perhaps you have a
dainty bead in marble; put it on a
low table to be admired, on the window-seat to cast a shadow, in the
child's hand while he looks into the
beautifully modeled face, at the smiling mouth, the wavy hair.
Take time to read and reread a gem
of poetry, or to sing a sweet song to
your children. Above all take time
to study with your children the shading of the leaf, the bird, the bee, thc
stone, thc pearls ot dew on grass
blade, the trost glitter, the snow
crystal; take time to wateh the trees
in tbeir grandeur, the stretch of meadow, the sparkling stream, the cloud
mountains, the sunset glory. Beauties
will he revealed to you you dream
not ot.
Even from our crowded city streets,
to the eye that is opened and the
heart that is awakened, beauty has
not fled. Thc flickering light and
shade weave themselves into exquisite
patterns on our walls and pavements,,
the trees throw their long, dark
shadows, the mists rlso soft and
gray, tho sun pours its flood ot golden  light    down   the  long  dusty
streets; to tho ear that is attuned,
harmony rises from tbe discord of
sounds. Ile who loves beauty and is
looking fur it will liml it everywhere. And tho mother who keeps
her enthusiasm alive by working
with her children, developing their
perception of beauty and love-for the
beautiful works of nature and art,
and revorenct for tho beautiful truths
divine, will give them a blessed inheritance which will lighten their
burden ns they grow beyond her
sheltering cine, and bring more of
cheerfulness, and hopefulness, and
youthfulncss into their lives.

An act ot conspicuous bravery on
lhc part, of a naval officer was wit^
ni'ssi'il on hoard II. M. S. Britannia
liming n recent voyage Irom Cromar-
lv lo Portsmouth. A shipwright
ii'amril Tnoner fell overboard, and as
it was blowing hard, and there was a
nasty, choppy sea, he was unable to
reach tbe lifebuoy, which had been
t brown to bim. The lifeboat was
lowered, but had a long pull to windward, anil could never have reached
the man in time to save him. Fortunately he was a splendid swimmer,
and thi' signalman kept a watch on
liim. After some time the ship
came round, the man having then
been some twenty minutes in the
water. Commander E. A. Taylor
was in the after turret when tbe man
was seen some way ahead ot the
ship, fie ran down from the turret
nnd reaching tbe forecastle dived ofl
at once, only throwing away his
cap, and caught tbe man just as be
was sinking from sheer exhaustion.
An able seaman named Tucker also
dived in, but there is no doubt that
thc commander saved the man's life,
as be was actually under the water
and sinking.
Somewhat extraordinary were the
circumstances under which a Liverpool clerk, named Arthur Edwin
Sbcarwood, pleaded guilty at Liverpool to a charge ot stealing £57
odd. Shearwood was sent by his
employers to thc bank to cash a
cheque for £10 and to lodge some
money, including £17 in cash, in thc
bank. He disappeared, and it was
afterwards found that he had cashed
the cheque and had been married at
Dublin. The girl he married was
suITering from consumption, and prisoner, acting on the Impulse of the
moment, stole thc money in order to
get ber away for the benefit of her
health. Before the honeymoon was
over, in fact, after they had heen
married a week, prisoner told her
that be had stolen thc money. He
was arrested at his mother-in-law's
house. The stipendiary, taking into
account prisoner's previous good
character, remanded him for seven
ilays, not, he said, in the way of
punishment, but in thc way of caution. He thought that prisoner had
yielded to a sudden temptation.
Ten persons were injured and many
nthcrs cut and bruised at Aldershot
recently in nn accident to a motor-
oimiibus, caused by the steering rod
breaking. The omnibus, with thir-
l\ -six passengers, was running
through the camp between Aldershot
ami Karnborough, when the driver
lost control and thc vehicle crashed
into a large telegraph pule at tbe side
uf the road. Every passenger on
the ioj) was shot off into the roadway, nnd those inside were thrown
from their seats, one being sent
clean tbrougb the windows. The
driver bad a wonderful escape. He
was unhurt, although he stuck to his
pdsl and to tbe last continued his
efforts to stop the runaway omnibus
by reversing the engines and applying
the brakes. The injured were taken
to the Cambridge hospital, Aldcr-
'sbot, where they were attended ami
| then sent to their homes. A little
child hurled from tho top of the omnibus was un.scratched.
A remarkable case Is disclosed in a
recent report ot the medical officer
to the education committee of thej
London County council. A boy of
three and a half years was frightened hv being put into a cold bath as
punishment, and could aot be brought i
near a bath for two years afterwards;
without evincing the greatest terror.)
Afler this date he began gradually to;
lose bis speech, did so in six months,
;inil continued in tbis condition tor
three years. During the past vear
be began slowly to employ short
phrases, such as "No, I won't,"
"Leave me alone," "I'll tell daddie."
He is afraid of his shadow, and
sometimes cannot be persuaded to
take food.    With the toss of speech
the hoy apparently lust all power ut
understanding, and merely stared
when addressed, In school 'the buy
is regarded as a deaf mute, and is
mentally deficient, llr has made no
progress, and the teachers are unable

Magna Charta U.tii.l,. at Wrayfi-
buiy, near Windsor, is to be sold hj
auction. This historical property
comprises an ancient residence of thc
Nonnan-Ciothic style, notable on account of the fad that it contains the
celebrated stone-capped "King
John's Table," whereon Magna Charta is popularly believed to have been
signed. The building is noted for
its painted room, so called because
its panelled walls are decorated with
tbe shields ami coats of arms of the
barons who were present at the signing of the Charter, lt is here that
tlie famous stone may lie seen. it
has the following inscription: "Be it
remembered tbat on this island, 16
•lune, 1215, .lohn. King of England,
signed Magna Charta, and in thc
year 1834 this huililing was erected
in commemoration of that great and
important event by George Simon
Harcourt, Esq,. Lord nf this Manor
and then High Sheriff nf the county." In the grounds are beautiful
fine old walnut trees.
Claude Leaper, a lad of sixteen
years, was charged at Lambeth induce courl, in London, recently, wiui
attempting to commit suicide. i in
case was an extraordinary one. At
midnight I'ulice bergeaut Covcll saw
the lad hanging suspended by the
wrists from a branch of a tree,
thirty or forty feet Irom the ground.
Ladders ami topes weie obtained to
rescue him. It was then found tliat
a piece of rope had been thrown
across a branch, and that tbe two
ends were attached to the defendant's
wrists, llis mouth was gagged with
a pocket handkerchief, held in position by a string tied round lus head.
Addressing the magistrate, the boy
said he went into the park aud sat
on a seat. Ik- remembered nothing
more until he lound himself hanging
limn the tree by the wrists. He had
no rope with hiui on the evening,
and could not remember climbing the
tree. Tbe magistrate remanded the
defendant in order tbat he might be
seen liy the prison doctor.
A remarkable family record Iras
been disclosed by the visit, in his
Msi year, of Mr. Benjamin Bloomfleld, of Heading, to lus native village of Pulham, St. Mary, Norfolk.
Ills father was a boatswain in tlw
Hoval navy, and fought under Lord
Nelson. He was himsell a member
for twenty years of tbe Berkshire
Volunteers. Ills eldest sou was
sergeant-instructor to the t-Juceti's
Owu Canadian Volunteers, ami
another son, Sergeant A. Bkn.nu-
lield, was recommended for a reward
for special meritorious service during
the Boer war. Two other sons are
sergeants in the Berkshire Ilegiment,
and also served in South Africa. Another is a sergeant in the 7th City
of London Regiment. Another son,
who was in the Bulls, died at Malta
while on service.
A startling adventure recently be-
fel a ladv and gentleman on the
sands north ot Blackpool. They were
walking upon the beach near Cleve-
leys when suddenly they lound themselves sinking in 'quicksand. In a
few minutes they were almost knee-
deep, and in endeavoring to extricate
themselves they sank still deeper, until thc gentleman was up to his
waist. After a desperate struggle
they eventually gained firmer foothold, and were assisted by two visitors from Crumpsall, who happened
to come up as they were getting out
ut the "slump hole." After a rest
and a change of clothing the lady and
gentleman were able to return to
their apartments, little the worse
for their unpleasant experience.
Colonel J. J. Harrison, who has
just returned to England after a visit
to the Congo and Ituri forests, found
tlie natives—the Walendi-very hostile. When he entered their country
he found that they bad deserted
their villages, and had all retired to
the hills. Every rock and eminence
was lined by these people, who were
fullv armed, and, to the number of
some thousands, squatted like rows
of monkeys on the hill sides watching thc white man's party. Every
effort was made to get into touch
with them, and it was only by leaving heaps ot salt and presents in the
middle ot the deserted villages that
thc natives, finding these gifts as
tbey suspiciously tracked thc explorers, became convinced of the friendliness of the strangers.
Two game keepers traversing tbeir
ground on one of thc peaks of the
IViillands, observed a rabbit warren
which bore traces ot being the abode
of some animals less innocent than
the conies. The keepers dug a
trench, and came upon the heart of
the burrow, which had three compartments, in each of which young foxes
were found, the litter being eight In
all. Within the burrow was fouud
the foxes' larder, which consisted (4
2ii lambs, 12 rabbits, two hens, a
duck, and a grouse. The cubs were
taken possession of, and the
vixen was trapped. The other three
adult foxes were captured, making a
total capture of 12 foxes within the
area of only one hill summit.
An inquest was held recently on thc
body of Annie Ooode, who had lieen a
servant in tlw1 employment of Mrs.
Mansergh, of Lansdowne Circus,
Gloucestershire. The jury having
found death from natural causes,
asked the coroner to censure Mrs.
Mansergh. Thc coroner said the
evidence cast a stain upon her character as a Christian. She allowed
tbe woman to work while in a precarious state, and when she finally
collapsed from exhaustion, palmed
ber olT while dying upon a gooil
Samaritan on the plea that she only
needed rest.

After n series nf adventures, an
oval diaiflond-studded pendant, worth
£50, lost three weeks belore at a
wedding, has been returned to thc
Hon. Mrs. Hurley, at Oxford Square,
London. "I believe I must have
lost it on leaving thc llans-Crestvnt
hotel," she said, "and it was probably swept up with the dust and
taken to the corporation rubbish
yard. Kami there il was taken to a
Barking dust school, and a man nam-
»;l l!i\. who was working tliere,
found it. lie communicated with
Scotland Yard, and so it was restored to me."
A strange story was unfolded at an
inquest held recently at Crewe on
Mrs. Armstrong, nf Nantwicb road,
a residential part of Crewe. It appeared that the lady married a German professor nf languages, but was
left a widow wlu-n quite young, and
since she had lived the life ot a re-
cluse, and although she bad means,
she insisted upon living alone in a
big bouse. She never undressed, and
she bad not been to bed for years.
She wastnot an Invalid, hut bad lost
faith in doctors. She was found
dead on the sofa.
Painful evidence was given at Scar-
borough recently at an inquest on
Pamela Smith, wife nf a blacksmith.
As the husband is suffering from

Great crowds of people have been examining the big clock in our
West window. Everyone says: "The dock is worth every cent of $40.00,"
and all are striving to win it.
Instead of sealing the clock as announced in last week's
