General Booth published several
hymns and music boolrs ''Salvation
Soldiery" and "In Darkest Kngland"
and -The Wav Ont," a work proposing ambitious schemes for alleviating
poverty and suppressing vice. His
sins and daughters are all actively
engaged in the Salvation Arm) oi

thUStooUr co-operator up to (lie time
of ber death iu  1880,
When the name of "SaHuliou
Army" was adopted iu I87tt military
terms were substituted for the ec-
clerrlattlcal designations, whieh were
first ndopted. Uniforms were devtft-
eil for Ihe laborers, which wen- iu
tended to he distinctive bui plain

too notieenbk from the usual cos
tnme. Hence they vHry ln different
countries, and are adapted to thi1

The doctrines of the Salvation
\rmv nn* described ns in harmony
witb those ol the orthodox churches.
No distinctions nre recognized, ex-
i-ept' 1-hose of individual ability and
piety, nml women serve in all duties
on precisely the same plane as men.
Convnitii nalilies nre thrown aside,
ami all permissible devices are adopted and practices followed that will
attract popular attention. The sys
lem of government nnd the nomenclature are absolutely military. IV
loeal districts and stations are provinces, distrlels, prsts, etc;, the
bodies of the working forte are
corps; the officers are the general,
commandants, colonels, majors, captains, lieutenants and sergeants.
While funds nre derived from subscriptions the aim is to ma'e the
posts self-supporting.
The Salvation Army has extended
its field of operations until It now
carries on campaigns in forty-nine
countries and colonies of Kurope,
Asia, Africa, America nnd Australasia. It reports more Ihan 7,000

Watts, but it is a work ot first-class

If infinite capacity foi taking
pains, be genius, then Mr. Watts
may fairly claim- to be a genius.
He has commenced tlu* Wtuk of
draining oft a vast track of laud, sit
nated at the rear of his present home
farm. When completed, und the land
put in shape for cultivation, he will
have, a vast farm of over liinn
acres, which will grow about every
thing that will grow on laud. To
drain oil the water from this land,
was something of uu engineering
problem, hut it was easily solved by
Mr. Watts. He constructed u wooden plough, of great si/e and peculiar
frame. With this plough ami a
donkey engine, .he constructed a
ditch that effectively did thc work
required. But, here again, another
problem arose. The water .running
through the ditch should be turned to
some .useful purpose, and, anyone
who visits Wattsbuig, will note that
it is now so doing Mr. Watts con
structed a wooden wheel, with .i
certain number of specially ion
strue-led boxes. This wheel raises a
■erlain proportion if the water How

tbeir celebration at the Island yesterday. "It will do much to inspire those who partUilKile with the
spirit of Strong, militant and effective service in the cause tA Protestantism."—Toronto (Dohe, August
It was in many respects a unique
gathering. There were no speeches
uud nc, business or organization meetings. It was a soc al gaMicring on
a large provincial scale—'a liearteller," as the Irish clergyman described
The Itlack Knights of Ireland Ih tlte
senior division of the Orange order.
The organisation has undertaken to
agitate tin- importance ot emphasizing the Siege of Dim, and has selected for speeial commemoration not
the shutting of the gates, but the
relief. "The Olorious Twelfth" of
the itoyal Itlack Knights is accordingly the twelfth of August.
Yesterday witnessed the initial effort to give tbis date commemorative mportance by making it the
invasion of a provincial celebration.
The expectation is. on the part ol
prominent members- ihat from year
to year tbi' twelfth of August- will
gather iu importance and Increasing
numbers will part dpatfl in Its doings. While yesterday's initial celebration was of a pri vine ial character. Its promoters stated that, as
lime went tm. It would not necessarily continue tc he restricted In
this way. While tlie "Itlack" in
Ontario have taken the initiatory
step, it is anticipated that all the
other provinces will follow suit, and,
while tlte demonstration was solely
of a social character on t Im* present
occasion, it Is expect-ed tint gatherings in the Inline will tie carried out
in much the same way as those of
the Orange order on 'luly 121b.
tercstS should be separated. The
unit should be the quartette composed of a farmer, a unionist, a manufacturer and a nondescript. These
quartettes would go on fishing,
tramping, hunting and smoking expeditions. Par from the strife and
noise of committee rooms, these citizens could discuss amicably tiues-
titms of national Importance. Any
man losing his temper could be immersed in the lake until quenched. A
spot should be segregated and named
"Windbag Hill," where fulminating
agitators, secession ist s, lobbyists
and husybotlics could be tied together in pairs and slung over wires in
the manner that tumultuous and irreconcilable tom-cats arc stranded
on village clothes-lines.
After a week of this sort of life,
imaginary disagreements, the "Kast
versus West" ad surd ity, the vague
and unprofitable exchange of abuse
and class hatred would probably no
reduced to the verge of disappearance. As citi/ens of Canada one
man would understand another, and
instead ot e.ich man, or class, striving for self, all would labor for the
national welfare.
During the following year, the
farmer would remember the manufacturer, not as a "tariff baron,"
but ps a jolly chap who was a good
fisherman; and the unionist might
fall to recognise in the man, who
cooked "bannocks" over n fire in his
own hui Id Ing, the "oppressor of
labor" and the "wrongful owner of
predatory wealth."
Thus, the four thousand delegates
to this noiseless convention would
become four thousand missionaries of
good, will—quietly illustrating thi*
strength, prosperity and content of a
united nation.—Industrial Canada.

The Canadian Pacific crop report
lor last week says:
Practically the same conditions
exist this week as were reported
last week regarding thc crops aim.-*)
lhe line of tho C.P.R. except that
the crop is one week nearer maturity
with everything in its favor. That is
the gist of the reports as Bent to
headquarters hy agents ol tlie company Tn three prairie provinces.
In Muni tuba the weather lias heen
fair, some loeal showers and a trifle
cooler than it sgould have been lor
Ihu fast ripening, but that same
weather lias helped in the filling of
the grain, producing a plump berry
Whllfl it has retarded ripening. However, good progress towards maturity has bleu made and cutting is
general iu many districts south and
harvesting is general all over the
southern part of tlie province and in
the northern pact it will be general
next week and all-fiwr the province
in another week. The wheat on the
whole is free from any damage.
Traces of black rust are noticeable in
some districts hut Uie grain is now
so In j advanced that no appreciable
dama'-e can result. Thc crop seems
to bc free Irom everything except
hail or frost.
In Saskatchewan; thc weather has
been almost Ideal for ripening the
crop which, on the summer tallow
and new breaking is fully np io the
average, hut where stubble seeding
waft done, as was expected, it is he-
low the average. Flax is in good
Calgary subdivisions (rom 25 to 35
per cent of the grain has been cut.
Wheat cutting has commenced ln tbe
north, but will not he general until
the last of next week. A few farmers are threshing In the southern
part of Alberta and report the yield,
large and the quality good.
Results generally throughout the
three provinces show that the farmer is getting just what he worked
.or. This has been emphasized more
than ever this year on account of tbe
dry spell in .lune—where the land
was thoroughly ciiM-ivuied and the
moisture carefully conserved, tbe
plant stood the drought well, tbe
farmers having stored siiffn* ent moisture around the roots to tide it
through. Where stubble was disced,
or worse still, where the grain was
simply sown on the hard stubble bed
no moisture was available and the
v eld is correspondingly poor. Much
of this stubble sowing was done on
account of thc unfavorable weather
of last fall allowing little plowing to
he done.
Voltaire bt m vItke Andre
.onitoo, Aug. 21—The susthlncj
spell nf cold stormy weather Uvrou(li-
ont England, which at lirst was announced is now rapidly developing
into a tragedy. The weather i« colder Mian many October months, is
ruining the imps nod rottming the
vegetables. Tbe holiday season, usually now at its -rtanltb, is completely
spoiled and tbe seaside towns are almost deserted. The narvest has
heen delayed and every day makes
the rural outlook worse. The hay
harvest, which promised to be a bumper one a month ago, is now absolutely ruined, -and the bay lies rotting
anil decaying on the ground. The
wheat and barley crops will he the
worst tor a generation, and even tbe
runt crops are soddening under the
constant rain. The weather eiperts
give no promise ol Immediate change.

Some few weeks back the Herald
directed attention to what it con*
sldored a    nasty kpock tor fits city
and dlatrlet, The point ut liMM
was the proposed sub-division ol the
land registry dlstrct, heretofore cell*
1-01041 iu Cranhrook, now about to be
divided between t'ranbrook and l-Vr-
nie, with the lion's share going to
Penile. Th s matter has {wen taken flip actively Iiy the local Conservative association, in the absence ol
Tins. Caven, M.I,.A. So far, however, tbe representations made by
the local Tory chieftains, have serum! precious little consideration,
nnd it is intimated tbat Cranbrook's claims must bc subserviuit
to those of Fernie, | because, forsooth, Hon. W, It. floss, so demand*-:.
In view of the serious injury this
sub-division will undoubtedly work
to this city, the local Conservative
association should take steps to se-
eure a strong evpntwaon of public
sentiment in this eity, nnd wttti that
object, in view should endeavor to
arrange for a public mcotlng under
iln* joint patronage of tlw* city council and tin- beard ol trade. In this
way it may be possible to arouse
Premier MoBrhie to some appreciation of the just elaims of Cranbrook ju this regard.

Loudon, Aug. 21.—Astonishing figures shewing the relative morality,
sobriety, health, and sanity ot the
sexes, as far as such figures can be
laken as a basis of comparison, appear in the lirst volume ol the detailed census report Inr England and
Wales, wbieh has just been published.
Ilrielly, the figures show that while
the women are more moral than men
Ihey are not as sane nr as sober.
Tbe statistics relating to the sexes
may lie tabulated thus:
Prisons—1.19   women to 1,000 men.
Certili.il reformatory industrial
s.-hnnls—278 wimien to 1,000 men.
Workhniise establishments — 655
women to 1,000 men.
Hospitals—Sexes nearly equal.
Lunatic asylums—1,140 women to
1,000 mon.
Certified inebriate reformatories
and retreats—ol 1,357 inmates nn
census night nnly 104 were men.
Tliere are 1.179,276 more females
than males in England and Wales.
Since 1821 llie preponderenee has
steadily increased, despite tne luce
Ihat more boys nre limn than girls.
Tbe proportion nl icmales to males
is nnly exceeded in one European
n.im.ry. Norway-,
According to the revised figures
now issued, the total population ol
England and Wales ut midnight on
Sunday, April 2, CHI, was 36,070,-
492, a decrease nl 4,777 from Ihe un-
revlsed total previously published.
The approximate number ol private
lamilii-s was 7,970,660, with an aver-
ace family nt I.I. The density ol
population is now SIS tn the square
mile, against 558 in 1901, 497 In
1891, and 152 in 1801. Each person
now represents just over an acre, and
II the Inhabitants were separated at
equal distances over the whole country they wniild he 76 yards apart.
Tbe census shows an Increase in
population nl 3,511,649, tlie decennial
rate of increase, 10.9 per cent., being the lowest recorded, As the excess ol births over deaths rose
slightly, this decline Is put down tn

Herewith thc Herald gives n sum-
mar) if lhe chapter in "Veterinary
Pathology," on ihe subject of Quarter-Ill in cattle. a disease at presenl somewhat prevalent among
cattle in this district, for the benefit
of many of its readers engaged in
the cattle raising Industry. Tlie work
fploted is, probably, one t.f tlu* most
nuthorltntlve extant and was recom-
mendod to the Herald by Veterinary-
Surgeon Dr. .1. W. Rutledge.
Quarter-Ill is a stationary Infective
or black-leg-, has Ionic been known as
noi Infectious, and that the meat is
quite innocuous to man aud beast.
<,naster-!!l is a stationary infective
bovine disease, tliat is tn say, it is
confined to certain localities and
sheds, where it remains tlin nghotit
the year. It is specially active during the warmer months (June, July
ami Auguib), and it occurs chiefly on
the swampy ground. It also affects
sheep, goats, and very rarely horses.
As a rale, only cattle between the
ages of :( months and 1 years become affected. Calves under three
months, and indigenous enl tie over
I yens ale rarely attacked. The reason of this, probably, Is thai the
former are not oxposed lo lhe In*
fectrlon on account ol their fond being restricted to milk; and that the
latter are mostly immune from having bad lhe disease. (Hie attack
confers absolute immunity. It seems
lb.it pigs, dogl, eats, rabbits,      and
inan arc naturally immune to tlie
i disease. This statement agrees with
I the well-known fact that the flesh of
Cal tie which has suffered Irom quarter-ill can be consumed by man, dogs
nnd pigs, without any ill results.
j The disease is characterized clinically by Ibe development id tumors
Iin the muscles of various parts of
Ihe body, producing, when steoked,. a
crackling sound, whicli serves to distinguish this disease from anthrax.
, After death the tumors become Infil-
traled with blood and serum containing gas-bubbles; and tbis again
distinguishes black-leg from anthrax,
ns the tumors ol the latter are not
f iiniii to contain nny gas. Further,
in,black-leg the spleen is not affected
nnd the blood coagulates quickly,
j while in anthrax the spleen is much
enlarged and tho blood clots more
slowly. Blackleg has long been
km WH as a disease of cattle, but has.
Until within recent years, lieen generally contused with anthrax. The
black-leg bacterium does not develop
in the presence of free oxygon.
.Iti the lihod it is slightly motile.
The symptoms of black-leg are loss of
appetite, debility, and groat elevation of temperature. The disease
.runs its course very rapidly, and Is
j fatnl in nearly al! eases. Cattle between thc ages of six and eighteen
months arc most susceptible, young
calves nnd old animals lieing more
resislenl. Fat rattle seem tn bc
especially liable lo infection. Thc
symptoms appear suddenly within
from one to three days alter infection. Thc tumors may develop at
j once or mny he preceded by the
symptoms of lover and trembling. A
lameness of the le^s is usually, observed, and is due to the muscular
tumors which almost always accom-
ifests considerable palm, and falls to
the ground soon after the development of the lirst symptoms. Tbe
Part which is most affected becomes
swollen and assumes q hlack or blue
color, which is due to the infill ration and coagulation of blood within
It. The dried spores of the blackleg baoterium may he carried in hay
or other dry feed, and it is quite
possible that animals may be infected by eating such material. Recent
investigations, however, indicate thai,
Infection mist frequently takes place
through wounds of tin* skin, mouth,
m* tongue, such ns would to produced
by various spines nnd the awns of
Medical treatment of blackleg has
been uniformly unsuccessful nud it is
not to he recommended. On the-other
hand, preventive vaccination has given very satisfactory results. Out of
500,000 cattle vaccinated In Kurope,
i nly one-half of one per Cent subsequently died of black-leg. Equally
striking results have been obtained
by t-he bureau of animal industry of
the United States department of agriculture. This bureau lias perfected
a method of producing Immunity
againsl black-leg by one vaccination,
requiring less time than the old
mel hod, in which two i "inoculations
were made, with an attenuated and
strong vaccine, respectively. Stockmen mny now buy Hm* vaccine nnd
innoculatc their own cattle.   *■•

The closing session of tlie Irrigation convention at Kelowna, H. C.,
was of special Importance, In, •pat
at iln* last moment, the following
resolution wns unanimously adopted.
Whereas, the successful settlement/
of the dry belt of British Columbia
is dependent upon an ample and permanent water supply for irrigation
purposes and in the clficienl and economical distribution of water to all
laud capable of irrigation and Ihat
can be supplied without undue expense;
And, whereas the present system
of supplying water by joint stock
companies in many districts only serves limited districts, ami a large
amount of first-class fruit and farm
lands is thus without a permanent
or satisfactory waler supply;
And, whereas, in the opinion of this
convention it is desirable and will
assist In the development ol the
country and safeguarding of the in<-
toreels of the farmers and fruit
growers that might be supplied with
water "from a common source, that
they have the power to organize for
tho acquiring of existing systems nml
privilege generally.
Therefore, he it'resolved, tbat it is
desirable that a scheme lie formulated giving the inhabitants of tlw districts served from the common sour-
es ol water supjily tlie power to
take over, control ami operate, for
ihe benefit of all land in such districts, all    water records, irrigation
mipanies and associations organized
for the purpose of supplying water
nnd that the provincial government
be respectfully invited to prepare ami
present to tlte legislature of the
province of B. C. al its next session
a hill providing for tbe establislimeut
of waler districts and Inr the organization of the InhaHitants "Ik* ng users of water" into corporate bodies
defining the powers, ikities ami obligations.
Indigestion-, Dyspepsia,
Heartburn and Constipation result more often from nervous
exhaustion than from food. Dieting aud pills will not long avail.
Permanent relief lies in rebuilding the wont out nerve fibres,
which can best be done with Lecithin, the form of phosphorus required for nerve repair.
Nervous Exhaustion
contains Lecithin (concentrated
from thousands of eggs) and
makes possible this cure,
It feeds the nerves, Induces
sleep, quickens the appetite, aids
ingestion, imparts energy to all
the bodily functions, and these
disorders soon disappear,
The beneficial effects are evident almost with the first dose;

busiest place in the line. Two
steamers, ibe Constructor and tlm
Conveyor, were lmill last spi'ttig by
Foley, Webb and Stewart, to transport supplies down the swift running Fraser river. The boats are
of the stern-paddle type, 150 feel in

ISO-horse power engines, The boats
are of green spruce Limber, sawed on

However, in account nf drawing loo
much water, the boats can bc used
only when thc stream is at its highest point. So (ur only half of the
supplies have been forwarded, and as

Five steam shovels and seven hundred ears of equipment and material
are piled up al lhe head of steel and
