to having a (air and cipiitahle ad-

law dealing with labor disputes. The
company sought to limit the investigation of the board to western lines
only, whereas ttie men contended the
aetion *>f the company would not only
affect western hut eastern lines as

score the company retaliate by
discharging ROO mechanics in the An*

noliey of repudiation of agreements to
the eautern lines as well as the western, thus involving the whole system.
When the board of conciliation was
set up and started its inquiry the
men asked that the investigation
should be thorough, and Ihey went to
considerable expense in preparing and
presenting their case, showing clearly
that the position ot the mechanics
was no better than, and in fact not
so good as, prevailing south of the

In spite of this the board sought to

"1 am more than over, convinced of
the value of our property since witnessing the development of the Pennsylvania oil fields,." said Anthony Anderson, secretary of the Canadian
Northwest Oil Co., Ltd., to a Times
reporter this morning.
Mr. Anderson has just returned
from a trip to the eastern oil regions, where be purchased a large,

two more car loads are en route. All
Ibis machinery is of the most modern
type, and when it is on tho ground
nd installed, the work ot sinking new
wells will lie vigorously prosecuted.
The directors have decided that the
company's business demands the pj-es-
uce of a manager on the gtouud, and

been chosen lor the position; Mr.
Johns will proceed to the oil field in
:l few days. A proposal from a big
contracting firm to build and operate
a sawmill on the property uud au aii-
n) teal ion for the use of part of tho
magnificent watct power owned by
the company are under consideration.
Mr. Anderson was enthusiastic in
speaking ol the prospects of Uio
company. "The iwople I met bacAt
east," said lie. "could not understand
our seTlthg stock at SI a share when I
told them the amount of our cnoltflH-

nonsense, as von mav readily   uiKler-

The idea is preposterous and its best
refutation is an examination ot the
company's share register. On the
oilier hand I may sav. without a
breach of confidence, that certain of
the directors have been having ali the
shares thev could get. Messrs. C.

fl. W. K. Carter viullwd Midiel last
week and iu conversation with a re-
psesentativc of the Herald, Mr. Carter gave some interesting facts about
that town. Michel, like all other
places in Kast kooteoay, is not
standing still. A new tipple is being built at a cost of between Wtm,-
Otitl and $;iiMi,u(K(. The mine is pro-
dueing 2,0110 tons a day now, but in
a short time will increase its output
to a,000 tons.        Mr. Carter speaks
ry highly of the hotel at the new
(own, which is run by Messrs. McCool
and Moore. lie says that the accommodation and the tablo are second
to none In the country. A now
hotel is being built in the new
town by Mr. Douglas, president of
Ihe Miners' union, which also will he
up-to-date in every respect. Another
thing Mr. Carter spoke of was the
wonderful way in which Michel cscap-
irt being burned, at the time of the
big fire. The flames seem to have
iumped from place to place in the
limber in the most extraordinary
v;a\, leaving the town unscathed.
No doubt -the exceedingly high wind
was accountable tor It. Mr, Carter
has great faith In the future of Michel and expects to see a large city
there in the near ruture.
Michael I'hillipps, of Tobacco
Plains, one of the pioneers of the
Kooteuays, having been here since
the early sixties, was the victim of
a runaway acoident yesterday near
KhVo. It seems that Mr. PbiUipps
was driving a young team, which, becoming excited, ran away, breaWng
up the rig and dragging Mr. i'hillipps along the ground lor a considerable distance. He was picked up
in an unconscious condition and
brought to the St. Eugene hospital on
the train from the east, where he
now lies in a precarious condition.
He regained consciousness for about
half au hour this morning and recognized his wife and daughter who were
at his bedside. His old friend, H.
1,. T. Galbraith, ot Fort Steele, who
happened to lie passing through on
the train vesterdav stopped off to be
with Mr. i'hillipps, when told ot tne
accident. There are hopes of Mr.
jPhillipps recovery, as he has a wonderfully strong constitution.

gave confidence, and charcoal is now
tiding made at  the    mill for numct-
hle purposes. Mr. landmark stats
th it ho has an expert in the process
and believes that before very long be
will be ab.e to create the industry.
Kir, hemlock,    sprue.-, n n -, Inilsam,
dar, etc., arc equally well adapted,
especially cedar, which makes a high
lass form of charcoal. The mothod
>i manufacture consists of wood
burned with but little access of air.
Slabs of wood are built into a heap
and covered with earth or sand or
any material to make a solid cover-
; or else in retorts. The heap is
fired at openings left in the bottom
and the passes escape at small openings above. For the making of tine
charcoal for gunpowder, etc., the
wood is burned in iron cylinders, in
which process of destruction, distillation, removes the volatile hydrocarbons pyroligncous acid, etc. thar-
i.-oal is used in the arts as a fuel,
polishing powder and other domestic
ways. It is invaluable as a nonconductor packing in ice house and refrigerator, an Ingredient in gunpowdei
-nd fireworks in a galvanic, battery
mi electric Hgtttj besides in medicinal
;ind hygenie purposes.
Th** experiments now being carried
on at the big t'ddv mill may lead to
the development of this valuable industry and be a source of income to
i ha sawmills.

and very good, Mass Dare's singing

moving pictures were nrstclass and
f. W. Reeves' rendering of such songs
as "Queen of the Earth" atti "The

On Monday evening the regular

but that these will be well patronized dcrlng the tall and winter months.
The films this week were particular-

'Air Ships,"' "The French Guard's

At the Edison the pictures    were

results obtained from the seeds pur-
L'hascd and sown in the spring,   ami
In man} cases   finds that his crop is
nol what he expected it to be; either
that the varieties he purchased   have
t come   true-   to name, or through
his own fault, or lack of knowledge,
hi- has planted a variety which     requires a ieager time to 'mature   than
local climate will allow,
the i.rst   case, if he is wise, he
will s.e that   noxt year he procures
lis *ctd from a dealer who has    an
indoubted      reputation tor   quality,
.ind in the scooixi, will make empirics
with a    view   to getting   a variety
more suited to the .listriet.
Whilst i' \\..uld be absurd to
..it   the   lacl of   uuving good i	
will ensure a good crop, it it a certainty that i" plant ball seeds will
bring failure in the same way ie
that all high priced seads must
be gi<od, .mil all cheap sends, bad,
,"ouW mil be correct, still, a mo-
nut's thought will show that the
dealer who. throug-h his reputation
fur quality is able to command a
high price for his goods, is lar less
liable lo risk that reputation by
arelessnesD or crookedness, than a
linn »ho have no reputation to lose,
who depend on low prices to
.'.itch trade; a brief study of the
methods adopted to maintain and inv
prove the qualities ol our crops will
Iso show that so much time and
trouble are necessary to do this, that
lie nun who giM-s in for quality must
I necessity be able to get a higher
rice than the one who buys seads
rown in a haphazard way.
Let us take, tor example, the cotn-
lon cabbage, as we know it at the
present day, and the methods by
Which ti h.is been brought to its
ri'st-nt state ot perfection.
This vecetable has been known, ac-
cordiu.; to prot. Bailey, lor about
IdOii years, and, as shown by the
t-iidcncy to revert to the original
ivpe, which is found In interior
strains of seed, was originally, a
stem surmounted by a whorl ot loose
'.eaves, from the center of which
ipr.mg the flower stalk, followed later hy the seed nods.
Some gardener who did a little
more thinkinc. than his felllows, no
louht noticed that one plant made a
bigger head or leaves than the rest,
■.ril saved the seed from this plant
tor his next vear's crop, with tiie
natural resurt' that in all probability
his crop was considerably heavier
ih^n that of his neighbors, and he
would also be likely to find a tew
nts which showfil more or less im-
nrovement on the one from which
he =aved his previous year's seed.
This method of careful selection
arried out through successive generations would in time produce beats
ol such a thickness that toe leaeea
:n the center would be so crowded
'ha' they were obliged to turn inwards, and, lieinc. shielded from ibe
sun and air. would become -bleached
imi thus form the starthw poftrt for
•he development of the cabbage as we
':ik-w it today.
The tn"dern grower of the first
eank is a scientist as well as a farmer, and is eontjm»»lIy on tbe lookout
for some individual' plant which
shows some trait, however slight,
which is an improvement on tb»
usual type, and finding this, exercises
•he greatest pains to permanently es-
abliih such, sometimes with sue-
eess. oftener without, owkw to na-
'ure's continual and obstinate fight

He mav raise thousands of seedlings, onlv' lo find that tbe point In
the parent plant which he wisbrrl to
perpetuate, has disappeared in the
oflsprir:*, it he secures one or more
;n which the trait still remains he
has advanced a step towards bis
goal, but only after several generations can he say that he has succeed-
.-•1 in establishing the improvement.
Even then, every year many plants
deteriorate, and the strictest care
and pains are necessary to keep bis
stock true to type, so that It will
easilv be seen that only seed grown
hy the man who makes quality bis
first consideration, can be defeated
on to give satisfaction to Hie man
who has to depend largely on tbe
1'iallty of his seed for the success or
itherwise of his vear's labor.

There is going to be a warm campaign in Vancouver at the coming
Dominion election. W. W. 11. Me-
Innis lias been nominated by the Liberals and some of the Liberals are
sole. It is said that L, U. Taylor,
inannger of the Vancouver World, is
dissatisfied al the turn affairs have
taken, and showed it by giving the
convention a notice of ten lines, and
it is further rumored that \lr. Taylor will come out as an iijlepc-ndent
candidate unless- the executive raakp
haste to soothe his ruined feeliuus.
Joe Martin, the stormy petrol ot the
coast, has returned from Kngland,
where he made n bitter attack upon
the Liberal party of Canada, and it
is generally understood that Mr. Martin will be an independent candldade
for Vancouver, on the Goflservftittot!

nlies from lUiifi, in a bee line. Bet-
er get a map of Canada for tne Post
•ditoi-ial rooms.
Then Lioyds Weekly News, ol August tt'b, iras u number of strange ami
tartllTig tilings to say. Here are a
few samples:
'"What bills lair to be Uie greatest disaster ol modem times on
thu American Couniiivnt has ijt-
fallen Ibe Kootenay district of
British Columbia, where a vast
area, calculated at about. 200
square, miles, has been swe.pi. by a
sea of flame which has wipi-d mil.
ii'ij lumber and minium townships and many little vllages,
caused hundreds of death, and
rendered al the lowest cstitmaie
10,000 profile homeless."
The exaggeration in the above
iragmph is too evident to call for
Hitmen i.        Further   on, Ibis great-
family   newspaper    of    Ihe   Kuglish
working classes says:
"Then followed the news that
after destroying Fernie the dames
hat] wi|»ed out Hosnier, with a
Imputation of 500; Olsen, with 300
inliabitaints; and Sparwood, with
200, and had attacked Michel,
with 1,500. Morrissey was purlin II v burned, and the devastation
reached as far south as Klko, only
a small portion of the town escaping-"
Who     ever telegraphed   the   above
could iwve    known   very little about
tne far of the country.
One* more:
"Appalling scenes were witnessed during the flight of tbe
people from tfcc flames, which
swept down the mountain sides
Hko fierce torrents, devouring
mvryttring In their way. The
disaster came so suddenly upon
the people of Fernie that in many-
cases there was not time to escape, and hundreds took refuge in
coke ovens, which have been dug
ihep in the sides nf the hills,
while others found refute in cellars and wells."
A coke oven  is   not dug out, but
built upon level ground, a thing that
anyone ought to know.
But the piece dc resistenee ot    all
the breaks is the following:
"One of the most impressive features oi the great tire was bbc
wild s-tampede of animals from
out of the mountain fastnesses.
These hav« been in every caw the
precursors of the fire, and in
many instances warned people of
the imminence of ihe danger before it was otherwise known. The
terrorised animals crowded i*e
gullies and the prairie, where
safely might be found, regardless
of the presence of human beings."
One wonders what particular brojid
would produce the above. It Is a
fact, and one which annoys English
jx-oplc who have settled or arc sojourning in Canada, that Kngltefa papers, in a general rule, show such a
lack of knowledge about this country,
its people and ihe conditions here.
Papers with such a circulation as
Lloyds should have a Canadian, an
Australian, un American and u
South African on their staff so as to
edit their American and colonial
news with ut least a little saliity.
The Btiiisn Columbia government
has appropriated S&i.OOO for tie erection of school buildings, city build
lug and thr repair of tbe streets and
.sidewalks in Ferule. As it is the
people's money ttiat is being appropriated and the people are wilUug
that it should be done iu this case,
the act was ,i proper one in every respect .
It is arousing to read in the western Conservative papers extracts
from the Toronto News, which are
always prefaced with the statement
that the News is an independent
napot with sli.Jit Conservative leanings- Why should not tbe News
have Conservative leanings? It wns
iKtught and paid for a short time
ago by a Conservative syndicate and
those in charge of tbe News now
have no difficulty in recognizing their
master's voice.

hail since the gnat financial panic in
Ififl.'i. Those Conservatives who attempt to make political capital out
of the financial situation iu Canada
this year, are a class of calamity
bowlers thai are a detriment to
their country, and are so constituted
that they would say or do anything
against their country for the chance
of getting Into otticc. The progressive people of Canada, those who
would meet these depressions that
never fail to sweep over the country
tit intervals, with that Indomitable
courage that characterize the true
Canadian, bold country above partisan desires, aiki are. never found be-
loullng their own nest or placing a
blot on the escutcheon of tho British
empire to satisfy the venal desire lor
oflice holding.
I The Conservatives of the Dominion
have one great advantage. They are
out of oilier and can be profuse in
their promises and reckless in their
denunciations of the Liberal party.
j The people of Canada are enjoying
greater prosperity than has iieen, and
at the. coming election they do not
propose to trade horses while crossing the stream.
i The Conservative papers are not
saying much about tfce wholesale
bribery in the Colchester by-election,
when baskets of whiskey were found
on the front door steps of   political
'workers, and money was bad for the
asking for any person who would
work under the Instructions of the
Conservative organization.
The Herald has received during the
lutst numth many new advertisements from outside parties. Why'.'
The fact is well known that the Herald covers the field, and it is for results that advertisers pav out their
money. This tribute paid to the

ine to be proud of.

The Democrats of the. Dirtied States
under fbe peerless leadership nf Mr.
Bryan, nre making a campaign on
economic issues, The Conservatives
of Canada, under tbe leadership of
Mr. Borden, are making a campaign
on slander and personal v ill ideation.
There is quite a difference.
The cost of living in Canada Is
high enough at tbe present time.
And yet if the Conservative
party is placed In iwvwer, the advocates of mi "adequate" tariff, which
means special privileges for the
favored manufacturers, will s-till further increase the tariff and thus adil
to the burden of the wagecarner. A
party that receives its campaign donations from the privileged classes
must necessarily place it«elf imder
obligations to those clauses/, and it
placed in power discharge those   ob-

There is a good deal of talk these
days about machine politics in both
parties. The term "machine noil-
lies" has become one of opprobrium,
and yet machine politics is but the
Jesuit of partv organization, and
without organization there could not
be such a thing as party. The man

, Al the investigation of the charges
of bribery and debauchery al the
Colchester election in Nova Scotia
about ;i year ago, many of the witnesses called last week were
evidently suffering from poor memories, and tbe counsel representing the
Conservative committee did everything possible by technical objections to retard the progress of the
hearing. Men who bad received
ivhiskey in cases marked "choice
tomatoes" could not remember whether it was tomatoes or whiskey that
they had delivered at Conservative
headquarters, Others who had received money were unable to tell the
exact amount, or from whom they
had received it. Tbe boasted break
in the solid Liberal representation of
Nova Scotia was evidently secured by
means that would make au hoiu?st
Conservative hang his head In shame.

Perhaps there never was in the history of strikes, a more orderly
crowd of men than the C.P.R. strikers in Cranbrook today. And there is
reason for this. The great majority
of tbe men ate among the very best
citizens of Cranbrook and have their
homes and their families here. Simply because one or two men out of a
hundred lose their heads and say
things that would be better left unsaid, there is no reason for the public to enst any reflections upon the
body of men as a whole.
Whenever Uie labor unions are eliminated wages will be reduced from 25
to f>0 per cent. Industrial institutions and railway companies combine
for their own protection and the
laboring man should he conceded tho
same right.
The Herald trusts that the present
strike on the C.P.R. will result In an
agreement that will give to both parties interested absolute iustlee. The
C.P.R. is- entitled to a fair deal and
so are the men.

diuns bitd boon Uie spoiled children ul
the campaign, and their British
brothcrs-ui-arms were anxious to
show tbe colonials what thev eocld
do iu the sporting field. The w.otk
of getting out the c.in.idi.iu competitors for each event was undertaken
by Mr. Galliber, assisted bv his
chum Dave Carley, a man almost as
well known turoueiioul British Columbia as his friend, and a capital
newspaper man to boot. When the
entries were all in it was found that,
though tho Canadians wore numerically much inferior to the other branches
of the service represented, ihey were
iu for every event but two. And,
more, thev were backed bv every dollar Ihe little colony of Canucks bail
saved from their wages in navigating
Father Nile.
Both of these latter events were set,
for the second dav. and so Mr. Galliber and Mr,     Carley did nol concern
11 selves verv much over it, honing
that by the morning some of .the
voyniccurs   would nmlortahe to rcprc-
senl Mini umiiley. Meanwhile Ihe
sports went on, and, lemiirsahle to
relate, the CuuicU were pulling down
the prizes in nlmosl all the evenls.
The dav closed in a slullllK beat, but
with Canndli »dTets   swollen   with
bubs and sixpences from the knapsacks of Ihe "Tommies," uml With

which was regarded as the premier
event of the loiiiney. Just Moulin- race was called, however, an Indian chief who bail brought a uuinher
of bis baud with him to "the river"
approached Mr. Crallihei. He land
heard of the dimcullv mil if his skin
was cupper be had the true instincts
of the sportsman. "Look here,'' he
said, "do \ou waul a man for the
race? 1 have n little buck here that
can beat anything on the reserve, and
if you like we can put him in,"
The youngster was sized and rushed
to the" tape before he realized what
was required of him. With tlie
crack of the pistol be was off like a
deer and heal a lanky artilleryman
bv au inch. The Canadian were delirious. Cheer after cheer rent the
air, ami Ihe chaff and banter which
only men under canvas understand
was beard on every side.
"Oh, that's all right," Ihe line men
replied, "but if vou barbarians are
real sports, why don't you enter
everything? We will give yon odds
of two to one Ibat we call heat vou
on Ibe jump."
This was a bluff which could not be
called, for it was well known thai the
regulars were reserving for this event
.liiiimv Corcoran, of the 1Mb ltoyal
Irish and the champion of India. Jimmy was already in bis tent, being
rubbed down with oil and other lubricants, and presently he emerged rc-
splemlcnt in green trunks and shamrock adornments, which he bad donned iu order to give the greater glory
to the isle from which his regiment
was drawn. Lord Aniicsley, who
was in command, and who had hltlvcr-
to taken no part in the banter, now
approached Mr. Galliher. , "See
here?" he said, •'you men should; lii?
represented iu this event. Vou nave
hail things vour own wav for nearly
two days and vou ought to he sports
enough tit give us a chance to lick you
for once and get back some of our
money." As he spoke Corcoran,
amid ;i mightv cheer, made his leap
and a triumphant shout went up from
the regulars. "How's that, bush-
wackers'" "Why don't you try?'
"Where's vour blawsted Canadians
now'"' were some of the remarks
which fell on Mr. Galliher's ears and
made him bite his lip.
Carley, who stood beside, him,
beard a muttered imprecation, and in
another momenl "Big Bill" was at
the scratch. The neat arms swung
a moment to poise the magnificent
trunk, and the desert sand Hew as he
struck it eighteen inches bevond the
marl-' of the vatmied Corcoran. The
latter essaved again and again to
beat it, but without avail, and when
lie bad given up the Insk Mr. Galliber, who had nol removed his boots
or any other portion of his wearing
apparel, made a second tump which
lauded him seventeen inches over the
first mark. It was nothing hut Canada for the next fifteen minutes, hut
when Cnrlev had time to recover his
breath he drew the big fellow down
lo him. "In Ihe name of heaven,
Bill," he asked, "bow did vou do it?"
A deprecatory smile passed over ibe
other's features as he reiilhtl. "Didn't

Many people   and many newspapers
in Eoglamd have bad unkind remarks
to make about  King Edward's   tour
of visiting in Europe.    A remarkable
feature about his traveling is    that
at every point    he was (riveted with
an    enthusiastic     and   popular welcome.    If His Majesty could     spare
the time to visit the Dominion    and
the United States bis welcome would
he just   the same.    The truth of the
matter is that King Edward      the
Seventh is the most popular man   In
the world today.     It has been   wall
said    that if    the   people of Europe
worn called upon to fleet a president
today that the King would be elected
by neelnmation.       His most notable
nualifieatlon is    that royal one      of
taet, with which he combines a fitness
for statesmanship whtoh is. with him,
almost a Renins.     When he takes    a
position be never has to retreat. Ills
ministers never have to apologise t
any nf   his- actions.      Though be call
in no sense  of die   word in- called a
politician, he lias been close   tu   tht
heart ol affairs for many years.   His
ministers an* mere tyros an compared
to him and among thu sovereigns    ot
Europe, with the simile exception ol
the Kmperor ol Austria, he bus    hud
longer to familiarise himself with the
affairs of the nation limn any   monarch alive,    He had the advantage of
having as a mother n queen of ureal
ability and tireless energy.     He has
enjoyed the friendship of some of tlto
greatest) men of modern times.      Ho
possesses great natural abilities, ami
is nothing if not practical.    The empire is fortunate in having such       n
man at its head anil indirectly      Uie
whole civilized world shares in   this
fortune.     A   measure   of his   good
work cannot he accurately estimated.
It is lo be hoped     that the affairs
of state will permit him to visit tbis
Dominion in the near future so   that
tie may for once hear a really good
'anadian "God Save the King."

Another way of using poison is to

that time of year and after tying it
up in small bundles, dip these'in a
mixture of Paris green and water and
then distribute thorn about the
ground among the orop. The cutworms will eat these and poison
themselves. Trees may also be protected hy tying small bands of cotton batting around the trunk, which
the heavy bodied cut worms cannot
crawl over. Kail plotinhing and
spring ploughing are both useful in
keeping down some kinds of cutworms, especially those kimls of
which the eggs nre laid in the autumn hut do not hatch till spring. The
ploughing places these so deep in the
ground that the sum 11 ami weak

The discovery lately made ol the
spot, on an island in the Lake ot the
Woods, where in 17.111, were buried the
remains of the French victims of the
Sioux massacre of that year, opens
up a vista of early Canadian history
which is of treat interest. A most
worthy successor to Cbamplain was
Pierre Oautbier, Sieur do la Yerandy

hut tlie spot where Verandre's son,
the Jesuit Auncau, and twenty youna
French fellow voyageurs were interred

its discovery at the beginning of this

his lather, an officer in tbe French
army, was acting us coventor. He
himself became a soldier of France
aijtl at the battle of Malplaquet in
ttOft, .was so severely wounded that
tie was left on the field for dead.
After the war, finding life dull in
France, he returned to Canada and
took up the work of exploring the
west. lie failed In reaehlmc the
Pacific coast, which was his objective point, but succeeded tu making
many valuable geographical discover-
les which paved the way fnr later
voyageurs and explorers. His first
attempt to reach tho Pacific was in
1740, jiust ten years before the taking
of l/nobec, at which city he difil
while organizing another western ex-
ueditlop, Yernnflvre, ns far as Lnke

Home life is the sure test of home
character. Let the husband grow
cross and stirlv, and the wife grow
coW and unnmiable. The children
grow cross aud savage as young
bears. Tbe father becomes callous,
peevish, hard, kind of a two-legged
liruie with clothes on. The wife
bristles In selMefence. They develop
an unnatural growth and sharpness
of teeth and the house is haunted by
ugliness ami domestic brawls. Tbis
is nol what the family circle should
be. If one must lie rude to auv. let
it bo lo someone he does not love—
not his wife, brother or parents.
Let one of the loved ones he taken

sayings of regret. Heath quickens
recollections painfully, The grave

who sleep. The collin and the gieen
ground are cruel magnets. They
force ns to remember. A man never
sees so far into human life as when
he looks over a wife's or fimother's
grave. His eyes grow wontirous
clear then and ho sees as ho never
saw before, what it is to love and be
loved. It is a pitiable picture ol
human weakness when (hose wo love
best are treated worst.
Encouragement is something *'*
naturally look for. A little praise,
a word of hope or a cheerful smile—
Home thing for the hungry soul to
grasp and tlie weary mind to test
upon, as we climb the toilsome mountain of life. How many poor heart-;
have sunken Into despondency, when
a lit lie encouragement has rcassuml
them. The soldier looks for It on
the field of hat Ilo; it is Mm cheering
voice of bis leader that urges him
on through the danger of death and
crowns Ihe day with victory. The
poet and the nrlisl, the writer and
Hie musician look lo the world to
acknowledge their genius and give
tbein praise. It is encouragement
which, calls forth their noblest words
to climb the mount of fame until
they surmount all difficulties and
write t.boir names in llamlug letters
upon its summit. Then let us give
oneouiiigemenl to each other in every
effort of good, in every noble noMon,
in the little duties o| life, and W»
will be happier for If, the world will
be belter, and a smiling providence
will look down and bless out labor
of love.
