School Board Will Go Into Matter Again With Parents
Salary Increases Asked by Central School Teachers — New Janitor Appointed
At the regular mooting of the
school board on Friday evening hist
thoro was much Important business
brought up, so much, in fact, that tlu1
bourd could not got through it nil,

Hi,, id I bound bus apparently not
boon hoodod, for, outsklo <>f tlio press
ri-pi-i'seiltntives, thoro was "lily ono
Intorostod poronl present fur a lime,
enquiring as to Oft' possibilities for
tho fourth year eourso. All ot the
IrUBtOOS were present.
At the request of the board, Inspector DoLong had visited tho high
school, anil made n verbal report on
bis inspection to the board, after the
preliminary routine businoss had
boon disposed of. Ilis findings, generally speaking, were favorable, and
a llttlo later, in reply to a question
put to him by trustee Gilroy, ns to
bow tho high school here compared
with others, Mr. DeLong stated that
it wns fully up to the average. Advantage was taken of the inspector's
presence to go into n number of
matters with him. Asked as to his
opinion of n possible fourth year
course here, the inspector said he
considered the fee proposed, $20 per
month per pupil, was high, but he
ngroed lhat the number of pupils secured would govern thc figure which
should be charged. In addition to
tho extra teacher's snlnry which
would be required, and towards
which ther0 would bc the usual government grant, there would be some
additional science equipment needed
for such a class, half the cost of
which was borne hy the department.
In engaging new teachers, care
would have to he tnken hy the board,
he advised, to select teachers capable
of taking the fourth year subjects,
particularly the science.
In reply to a question by the
chairman, Mr. DeLong endorsed
sports In moderation at high schools,
nnd thought that the idea of a school
magazine, and a school play, were
good, and strongly endorsed the
practice of debating, going so far as
to advise that one period a week
might well be given up to debating.
Trustee Mrs. Miles felt that there
might well be devised some form of
graduation exercises at the end of
the high school course, with a diploma, hut the obvious objection
pointed out to this was that the matriculation results nre not published
till some three or four weeks nfter
the close of school, so thnt there nre
really no results to announce passing or failure on. unless the year's
average could be tnken.
Mrs. 1-'. llodderis wus present to
ssk whnt lhe board hnd derided to
do in regard to the fourth yenr high
school course, and wns informed thnt
so far there had been only seven
applications mnde. with nu eighth

course there, ill a cost to each pupil
of $7.fill per month. The board are

interest of the city, hut Hint much
depended on Its proper formal ion

Other boards were working successfully in other places, and nn organization in ('ranbrook should bo

same to another meeting to be culled in the near future. The appointments were left in tbe hands of

H. White, Collector of Cm-
tome Here ior 20 Yean,

tion of bog raising, and drew attention to the peculiar situation that
existed in lho province, where only
7,000 hogs were raised, whereas
150,000 were imported. There wns
Undoubtedly a good mnrket, the
question waa "no nf which was the
type to raise. In answer thereto he
said that whereas the government
policy was toward the long hnck or
bacon type, he felt that this should
bo modified by local conditions of
marketing. Where the production
wns only one twentieth of the consumption it was natural that the only
consideration at the present time wns
local market nnd not tho foreign.
Tn show lhat it was possible to raise
the best in hogs In B, C. he told of
an inspection trip made "with a prominent English hog man, who referred
to the hogs raised by a prominent
fancier nt tho const ns tho hest he
hud over seen. Ib- also stated that
ns B. C. wns tho only province where
the ton per cent premium for bacon
hogs did not apply, there was less
Incentive for the rnising of this type.
As wns brought out in tho discussion, the weight nf the hog depended
n local conditions, these being taken
into consideration he would recommend tbe improved thick, smooth
type, this was getting nearer- the
bacon type nnd would stand in good
stead if nt nny time the former wanted to jump, into the exporting type.
Hearty applause was given the
speaker for his nddress.
Mr. A. L. Hay, provincial agriculturist, reviewed a few points which
he considered of interest to tho institute. With regard to the hoys'

Mr. Horry White, collector of
customs and excise here, received
word the end of last week of his
promotion to the position of special
inspector of Customs and Excise,
with headquarters at Vancouver.
This is a position entailing the inspection of customs and excise offices at various points in the province,
and although the new appointment
dates from the present time, Mr.
White does not expect to be leaving this city for a month or so.
The promotion comes at the end
of twenty years service here with the
department, during which time the
volume of business handled by the
office has increased tremendously.
Since Mr. White took over the ap
pointment from Mr. E. Small, who is
now Indian Agent here, in 1905, the
office force has been increased from
one to three, and the excise and inland revenue branches added, that entailed a good deal of extra work, especially during the war years, when
there were special levies to collect
through these channels. There are
a number of customs outports in the
territory covered by this offlce, and
the increase of motor traffic across
the line has meant a corresponding
increase through the customs branch,
besides which the natural increase
in husiness, in Cranbrook, Kimberley
ond elsewhere, has meant a substantial growth in the revenue accruing
to the government by woy of the
customs. Large amounts of money
pass through the office month by
month, but little is heard of its
working by the public in general.
While friends of the family will
regret that the impending change is
likely to Involve their removal to
Vancouver before very long, they
will also extend congratulations in
that a long period of faithful service has brought some recognition.
Mr. and Mrs. White are among
Rome of the early residents in this
city, having moved over from Fort
Steele more than twenty years ago.
During that timG they have naturally
formed friedshlps and associations
that will be hard to sever.
No announcement has as yet been
made as to who will succeed Mr.
White in charge of the office here.

Bee Held by Service Cubs on
Friday Accomplishes Much
Towards This End
Tht. Board of Railway Commis-
iloners have been instructed by an
irderdn-coundl passed mi Friday
ast by the cabinet council at Otta-
va, to make a thorough and com*
plete Investigation of the whole
subject of railway freight rates in
the domlnIon<
It is further set out in lhe order-
In-council that the policy of equal
liation of freight rates eaal anil
■est  should  be recognlsod  "aa  far
s   possible,"     as   being  the   method '
est calculated    to.   ilunl equitably
■ith all parts of Canada, and heing
est  calculated  to   facilitate    thr in-
irehange of commodities between
the various porrions of the domtm
•v.,  as  well as the  encouragement
nd development of industry and
agriculture,   and   lhe      development
Iso of export trade.
Only one restriction  Is  placed on
the  railway  commissioners  in  revising the rate schedules,  and  thai  is
that   the  maximum  rates  on   flour
grain, a? established in the famous (rows' Nest agreement, shall
be retained, nnd not exceeded.
Generally  speaking,   the   decision
f the government at Ottawa tt. pui
the entire rate fabric into revision
i< regarded as a victory fur Brll
sh Columbia, but there is -me not-
ible exception tt. this opinion, ami
:hi- et.mi's from no les- a person
han Premier Oliver, who believes
that the railway Commissioners
havt> been ordered to do something
that is beyond their power, and
so the principle of equalisation may
nut yet be established. In other
circles the opinion fa held that the
railways will in all likelihood test
the validity of the order-in-council,
and that it may go through the
courts before the point is settled.
Dr. King, on the other hand, is
confident that the principle of equalization will be established, and
that the manufactures of Hritish
Columbia will be enabled tn find a
profitable market in the prairies, a
territory which has hitherto been
almost exclusively served by the
G. C. McGeer, counsel employed
be the B. C. govermii'.-zii in it.: fjght
for equalized rates, is also optimistic as to the effects that will now
follow, stating that the entire grain
area of the prairie provinces, west
of Regina, becomes tributary to
Vancouver, so far as the handling
of the crop is concerned.

This reception, and the biennial conference over which Field Marshal
Ilaig presides premise to bo one of

will be greatly advanced.
Before returning, Mr. Young intends to Visit at Toronto, Sunderland,  Barrie and Lindsay.
Church   Union   Now   Effective
Wednesday of this week, June
10th, marked the official inauguration
of church union in Canada, and. in
some of the larger centres serrteeR
were held that day to commemorate

on Friday evening last, when from
7 o'clock to I* o'clock the rock clean

the various organizations in the city
took place. The fact that there was
such a large turnout would indicat
that there has been nn awakening
of the community spirit, which augurs well for the future, especi.
when it is known thnt on the same
evening there were no less than threi
other meetings at whicli citizen
were devoting their time to civic
interests, These were, a meeting of
the library members, meeting of the
school trustees nnd a meeting called
by his worship the mayor, to consider the matter 'if an associated

The Benedicts again emerged victorious, by a score of three to two,

which took place out mi the ball
ground. In all former games the
Benedicts have usually had everything their own way, but on this occasion they only managed to kick

Hittlo. During (he first period of
the game no goals were scored, in
spite of the fact that several limes
the ball was brought  in  pretty clnst'.

One   of   the   best   baseball   games
of the league, since the opening of
tlU' season, was played on the home
grounds on Sunday last between the
Wyollffe  and   Wardner  teams,   Wycliffe winning the game by a score of
six to two.    The Wardner team was
a  Utile  handicapped   by having  one
of  its  best   fielders,   Elmer  Thompson, on tht. bench with a sore arm
for several innings, and also a couple
of its other players, who, although in
iheir places on the team, were really
on the sick list, nnd  were thus unable to put up such a good performance   ns   usual.    Showers   felt   all
throughout the game, and twice the
downfall became so heavy that unv
pire Vic Lundbum was forced to call
halt  in  the   proceedings,  and   the
players adjourned to the dugouts for
inciter, therL. to await the rain elear-
ng away.    Reed started the pitching for Wardner, with Johrens for
Wyciitfe, and both sides were held
scoreless  for  the   first  two  innings.
In Ihe third, however, Wycliffe set up
a heavy batting streak, and pushed
their score to four runs.      During
this inning Harry Thompson, catcher
for the home team, covered himself
as hero  of the  game  by his cool-
headedness in putting out two Wycliffe players as they came charging
home ciosq together, and would have
succeeded   in   putt ing   out   a   third,
Heinz   Holman,  had   not  the  latter,
when he saw Thompson intended to
pul  him out, charged full tilt into
him on purpose, causing him to drop
the hall after touching Holman. This
play was not protested and the remaining runs on both sides were gnined
in Ihe fourth inning, nt the end of
which the score stood at 0-4, as the
game finally ended. During the next
five  innings tho game wns good  to
see, neither side being able to gain
a run in spite of their best efforts,
and the fact that several times found
the bases loaded.    Johrens, pitching
for Wycliffe, put up a splendid game,
with lots of speed on the hall, but
seemed to receive hut average support from his catcher.      Reed, the
Wardner  pitcher,  started  out well,
hut  appeared  to  fail  in  the  fifth,
when  his arm gave out, and from
then on he ran a great deal of halls
and easy strikes, which fortunately
were rescued in thc infield; Ben Em-
bree, short-stop, hereby distinguishing himself In  the  record time  in
which he picked them  up and got

Activity at Kimberley Means
Era of Optimum and
Victoria. — A marked revival in
the mining industry of the Kootenay
section is reported by Hon. William
Sloan, minister of mines, who return-
to Victoria last week after a visit
to Cranbrook.
"Mining activity is receiving new
stimulus all over eastern B.C.," declares the minister. "A large amount of new development is taking
place, capital is coming in, and not
in years have the prospects for the
industry been brighter. In consequence the people in that section
are optimistic and are looking ahead
to what they believe will prove to
be the most prosperous era in the
history of the Kootenays."
The minister cited the Stemwuidt-r
group at Kimberley, whose underground workings he visited, as an
illustration of the new developments
now being carried on. This group,
he said, situated across Mark Creek,
from the Sullivan property, is now I
showing marked development. The
ore is the same as thut in the Sullivan, and the company controlling
the property plans to expend $100,-
000 on development work before undertaking new operations.
If tbis property turns out to be
anything like the Sullivan, it will
certainly give a great impetus to the
industry in the East Kootenay, Mr.
Sloan went on. The town of Kimberley was reported to be making
womjerful strides: in population.
When the minister was lost there, it
was a mere village; today, he sayR,
it has a population of over ■'1,000 and
is growing rapidly.

Mrs. Tcm.nl, lady editor of the
Sabctba Herald, in Kansas, tells
Kansas editors at Topeka that
every woman needs three husbands — one for society, one to
mako money, one to look after
the housekeeping. "Present-day
husbands are satisfactory, as far
as they go," she says, but they
do not go far enough.
Thc learned Mrs. Tennal knows
that polyandry, "meaning several
husbands, was once the rule
among many nations. It still prevails among certain semi-barbarous peoples.
And the husbands manage to get
along fairly well.
Polyandry, however, will not
solve the problem. The husband
must multiply his accomplishments, while increasing his tendency to fidelity. The American
husband makes money, but does
not know hnw to pay compliments.
Many European men pay marvelous compliments, bat can't
make money.
The combination, or "three-in-
one," husband will appear in tht
course of evolution.

The board having called for the
resignation of the janitor at the Central School, bids for the position, in
response to the advertisements, were
opened. There was no lack of them,
the applicants being as follows:
A. W. Shean, Yahk, *1800 per
year, with quarters and heat for family of five.
S. McLeary, Crnnbrook, $125 per
W. Wells, Cranbrook, $180 per
month, to pay own helper,
Angus Musser, Mission City, same
alary as paid at present, to pay own
R.   W.   Edmondson,      Cranbrook,
$175 per month, employing own help,
Jas. Logan, $195 per month for 17
rooms, $200 for 18 rooms, to pay own
helper as at present.
W. H. Stender, Cranbrook, $2100
per year, to pay own help.
W. Awmack, Kimberley, $185 per
T. A. Jensen, Port Moody, $150
per month.
Careful consideration was iriven
by the board to thc matter, and the
out of town residents were first eliminated, it heing felt that everything else being equal the ratepayer
should have the preference. Then
the mutter of qualifications was taken  up,  the boiler  inspector insis
ting on the janitor having fourth
class, or low presure engineer's, capers. Then the respective salaries
were considered. It developed finally into a choice between the appointment of W. II. Stender, at $176
per month, provided he produces tbe
necessary papers, and Jas. Logdn,
the present janitor, at his present
salary, $106, or ?-tltl when the extra room is added. Trustee Gilroy
was in favor of the reappointment
nf Mr. Logan, considering that his
long and faithful service there merited consideration, and was supported hy Mrs. Miles, who staled there
were never any complaints as to the
condition of the school under his
care. There was some question as
to whether Mr. Logan has the requisite papers, and a letter from the boiler inspector seemed to give the impression thnt a janitor with a permit
would not be satisfactory, and it
was not clear to the board whether
Mr. Logan had a permit or was certi
ficated. Mr. Stender is not yet in
possession of fourth class papers, but
'promises to produce them before he
takes up the job. Expressing the
opinion that it should be considered
that the appointment of Mr. Stender meant the saving of about $20"
per year of the ratepayers* money.
Chairman I*«zall -ca.st his deciding
vote in favor of a motion made by
Trustee Henderson and seconded by
Trustee Jackson, that Mr. Stender
be appointed. Trustees Gilroy and:

SOME newspapers at  the mast aro vociferously
applauding what is looked upon as a victory for
the province in lhc first round uf the Id Hess fight
for lower freight rates. To the lay mind this is a
question wrapped tip in mystery, the connection of
which with their every day life is not clear in thc
minds of many people in this pari of lhe province.
Summed up succinctly, the fighl for equalized
freigltl rates, which Premier Oliver has heen waging witli characteristic vigor, may he staled tlnis:
a western grain rate from the prairies was sought
on a proportionate basis to that obtaining nn lhe
haul east to tlu- head of lhe lakes; and a rate from
the coasl east, on manufactured goods aud commo-
dilics, was likcwi.se soughl to compare with that in
Hi Ve i from I fie eastern centres !<■ lhc prairies.
This is equalization in ;i nutshell.
The government has ordered tlie railway
commissioners to proceed forthwith on a revision
of freight rates in general, with instructions to
incorporate into its findingSi as far as possible, the
principle of equalization between the cast and the
west. But at there is one condition attached to
tin- >ui Ier passed on to the rail nay commission,
ami ibis is to the effect that the rate on grain easl
to the lakcheatl shall not exceed that laid down in
the Crowsnesl agreement. Herein lies what may
prove thc weak spot in the argument of the government. It is insisted thai the railway commissioners be given a free bund iu fixing their rates,
yel their scope is delimited at the outset by a condition it is sought to impose on them, Naturally
an) revision that is made to satisfy the western
claimants must be downwards; and whether the railway companies will be satisfied lo take what is
handed i" them in the shape of a lessened revenue
by some millions of dollars, remains lo be seen,
but railway directorates arc only human, and lhe
period of thc mtlcnnium is not quite yet, so it is
doubted whether they will. Tin- future is still
shrouded in uncertainty as to how the decision of
the government  will be received.
There is no doubl that a lower grain rnte
west |o the easl will mean an increased export
business for Vancouver. Bul the cars that haul
the graiti coastward have to be brought back for
anotbei trip. Will tliey iravel empty? If not,
what will fill Ihem? British Columbia's manufactures are not yet on a very wide scale, nor do the
prairie provinces, or that part to which lowered
freight rates will be the open sesame, offer nn unlimited market.
This is just one phase of ibe situation, but it
will tend to indicate bow the whole question is
wrapped around with delicate considerations that
bear diicctly on the question at issue.

Thousands of tourists every day during summer and
ant um u months picnic under rural skies. Invariably
they leave behind a Kix'at deal of refuse matter—pape
bags, newspapers, and scraps of eatables.
All those who picnic out-doors, whether iu city parks,
boulevards, or nlong the country roadside, should resolve
not to violate the hospitality of those who afford them
pleasure spots for spreading their basket lunches. Motorists should co-operate to keep the roadsides clean.
Those who leave smeared scraps of paper, greasy boxes,
and other miscellany behind them after finishing, their
luncheons, are not only indulging in indifference to the
rights of others, but are helping to destroy their welei
afield, and the pleasure to be derived from occasional
visits to th(> country.— Okanagan Commoner,
It is n remarkable thing that less than seven years
after the end of the greatest war in history, with a debt
unparalleled, and tremendous losses in human material
aud every kind of industrial resources, Brtiian should
be enabled to set the gold standard at the mast. Whether
the process has been too rapid for Britain's real benefit
ii- not, at least it has been accomplished, and probably
aside of a couple of years Britain will begin to feel the
advantage of the sacrifices she has made.—Winnipeg
Canada's backsliding from prohibition and return to

The fifth fracas irf this seasun's
baseball schedule tuuk place on Sunday afternoon at Wardner. Kimberley and Cranbrook. Our own noble
mid fairly nifty nine performed
againsl tlie Wardner squad, on the
hitter's back yard. Despite a generous allowance uf rain, mud and bone-
heads the meeting brought out some
interesting stuff. Johren handled
the deceiving end for the locals, and
made a neat and handy job of it
inducing no less than sixteen batters
tu puke bules in lhe climate, meanwhile, allowing bin four bits. His
opponent «"> the tossing hill. Heed.
formerly of Wycliffe. turned in n
fairly good card himself, but was
lei down sorrowfully on nine distinct
occasions bv what must be referred
to as Ilis supporl. Both twirlers
issued several passes to first, hut we
blame that tu the effect uf lhe weather uu the hull. The main scoring
stanza fur lhe locals was the fourth,
when Ihey run in a quartette of tallies on u walk, a single, ;. triple, a
stolen base and five errors. They
also registered once in the second
and again during the fifth frame.
flat-footing over the slab on these
occasions on undispntable wallops,
Wardner's two runs were both scored by II. Thompson, the incurable
base pilferer stealing second each
time he was on, one marker coming
in during the second frame, the nther
in the fourth, both runs direct results of hits, by Gillis, who thus
gathered unto himself exactly one
half of his team's hatting average
for the day. Rain stopped the game
a couple of times, hut after the umpire procured a raincoat he bravely
let the game proceed, so no one worried. Johren registered the only
exlrn-bnsp hit of the festivities, when
he hoisted a lofter over the centre
fielder's head that brought him
around to third. Following is a
summary of the game:

The wrestling match between Anton Peterson and Nels Jepson, held
nt the .Mill Hall, Vahk, on Saturduy
night, was won hy Jepson, who secured tw., falls out nf three, getting
huth falls by the use of Frank
Gulch's famous hold, the toe hold.
The match lasted just over the hour,
and fast work was shown hy both.
The first preliminary was between
Arthur Anderson and Ernest Allan,
both youngsters of about 7 yeurs of
age. But what they lacked in age
they made up in willingness, and a
very exciting bout was the result;
verdict, a draw. The next bout was
between Frank Allan jnr. and Royce
Thompson jnr., this was also a fast
hout, both hoys hitting exceptionally
bard, considering their light weight.
The last preliminary was a fifteen
minute wrestling match between Mr.
Jacobson, of camp ',1, and Sidney

iu a draw.

Before a rather small crowd of
fans Anton Peterson and Nels Moe
wrestled on Wednesday evening last
in the hall above the Geo. Tater pool
and billiard parlors. Peterson, who
is a veritable giant ns men go, was
the winner of the bout, securing two
falls to  Moe's one.
After a few interesting prelim in
aries, in which Bobby White got the
decision over young Haddad in a
boxing limit, and Woodman defeated
  In a wrestling go,
the main bout wus on. For twenty
five minutes the two eombntants tore
and tugged at one another, Peterson
was 80 lhs. heavier than his op
ponont nnd always on the ugressive.
Moe, however, was no easy prey for
him, nnd with his grent strength
seemed to have little difficulty
hrenktng the many head-locks which
his big opponent repeatedly put on
him. The first fall, however, was
gained by Moe, when, after over
twenty-five minutes of heavy going,
Moe won with the reverse arm-lock
and body scissors. The second fall
was of longer duration, Peterson
again tried to get the best of Moe
with the deadly head-lock, time and
time again his lighter opponent
would shake himself loose. After
thirty-five minutes Moe was pinned
with a bad head and arm lock.
The third period was a short one,
Moe succumbing to another head-
lock in twelve minutes.
At the conclusion of the match
Peterson challenged Moe to another
match, in which he agreed to throw
him six times in one hour and a half,
Moe to be the winner should he get
one fall. This match will take
place on Tuesdoy evening of next
week in thc same hall, and should be
a most interesting bout.

Tuesday evening the members uf

With regard to the old type he
presumed that his hearer? could
well remember what awful "bores'*
the exams had been. ThL. necessity for sonu* different form of ex-.
animation was brought about to
some extent through the request of
some of the larger corporations for
some test ns to the ability of applicants for certain positions, where
the old method would not apply.
The new type of examination was
divided into two classes; first the
intelligence test, and secondly the
standard   educational   test. The
first, or "I. T." will not show progress, but will show the ability to
make progress. In discussing the
intelligence test, the terms "chronological age," and "mental age."
should be familiar, the first being
the student's actual nge, while the
latter is the age with which his
mental ability is on a par. Thus a
child's mental agP may he greater
than his years. By dividing the
mental age by the chronological age
there is obtained what is termed

"CAPTAIN BLOOD," a Vitagraph picture   with   J.   Warren   Kerrigan   in
the title role, it an adaptation of this thrilling novel.
Blood, a young Irish physician, is sent to the Uarbadoes as a
slave under orders of Kinp James.
He is bought by Colonel Bishop, the
military commander, and falls in
love with Arabella, the niece of the
colonel. Spaniards bombard tho c'l>'
ami sack it. Blood saves Arabella
and Mary Traill. Ile captures the
ship and sails for Tortuga, the rendezvous of buccaneers of the Spanish
Main. There Captain Blood, tormented by liis fear that he will never
seo Arabella again, and importuned
by his comrades, takes command of
a pirate fleet. Levasseur, a frenchman, enlists under him. Levasseur
captures a Dutch vessel and lauds
with Madelon d'Ogeron, daughter of
(be Dutch governor, and her brother
<ni ono "I" ll"' Virgin Islands. There
he demands ransom for d'Ogeron
and holds Madelon as hostage. Blood
lands ot tbe island where Levasseur
proposes lo hold tbe girl as hostage
for ransom.

|    Mademoiselle stared at him in unbelief.
|    "Oh, you are noble!"
Captain Blood sighed. For the
whole truth, which he withheld
from Mademoiselle d'Ogeron, was
tbat iu venturing his life to save her,
he had been driven by the thought
tbat the deed must be pleasing in
the eyes of Miss Bishop could she
but witness it.
That affair of Mademoiselle d'Ogeron bore as its natural fruit an
improvement in the already cordial
relations between Captain Blood and
the Governor of Tortuga. It was
not difficult then for Captain Blood
to recruit ably crews, und he might
have increased the number of ships
as welt, but he decided to hold to
tbe three vessels which were his—the
Arabella, the Lu Foudre anil the
Santiago, whicb he had rechristened
ibe Elizabeth.
It was with this fleet that he carried out tho enterprise against Mara-
caybo, an enterprise in which Peter
Blood's daring was only surpassed
by stupidity wliich almost turned the
tide against him and delivered him
anil Ills men over to the tender mercies of his implacable enemy, Don
Miguel de Kspinosa y Vuldez, the
Admiral of Spain. Captain Blood
bad lauded at Maracnyho and had
found the town empty. Too soon
be learned of the trap. Kspinosa
bad put into the narrow neck of the
bay with his ships and hnd bottled
tlu. buccaneer in the bay. A sloop,
captured by Captain Blood, was loaded with combustibles and powder und
was sailed directly at the Spaniard
until tbe grapnels held the two like
a vice. Then it was set aflame.
The admiral's flagship burst into a
blaze, and fine seamanship and hard
fighting with his three ships made
Captain Blood master of Maraeaylm
Bay. But, when the Spaniards had
turned tail for shore ond he gave
chase, the fort which guarded the
bay, and which had seemed deserted,
poured down a raking fire upon him,
am] drove him in mortification nnd
despair to' take refuge in the town.
Tbe Spaniards secured themselves in
the fort.
With a devil's luck and clear-headed thinking, Captain Blood feinted
with preparations for a land attack
after he had managed to secure u
large ransom in gold from the Governor of Mnrncnho, and, opening a
broadside, put the fort in flames.
Captain Blood sailed for Tortuga and
Don Miguel was left to chew the bitter cud of lost opportunity.

"1 did not. They are prisoners
of my own—a personal matter. They
arc French."
"French 1" Captain Blood's light
eyes slabbed at Levasseur, then at
the prisoners. lie frowned thoughtfully upon Levasseur.
"Yesterdny you surprised nie by
mnking1 war upon the friendly Dutch.
Hilt now it seems tbat not even your
own countrymen are safe from you."
"Have i not said this is a matter
personal to me?"
"Ab! Ami their names?"
Tbe prisoner answered for him.
"I am Henri d'Ogeron, and this
is my sister."
"D'Ogeron?" Captain Blood stared. "Are you related by chance to
my good friend the Governor of Tortuga?"
"He is my father."
"The saints preserve us now!
Are you quite mad, Levasseur?"
Captain Blood sat down on the
cask that Levasseur had lately occupied, and looked up blandly. "I
may inform you, to save time, that
I beard the entire proposol that you
made to this lady and this gentleman, and I'll also remind you that
we sail under articles that admit no
ambiguities. You havo fixed their
ransom at twenty thousand pieces of
eight. That sum then belongs to
your crews nnd mine in the proportions by tlie articles established.
But what is far more grave is that
you have concealed from me this
part of the prizes taken on your last
cruise, ami for such nn offense Uit
that the articles provide certain perr
allies that are something severe in
"Ho, ho!" laughed Levasseur un
pleasantly. Then added: ."If you
dislike my conduct we can dissolve
the association."
"That is my intention. But we'll
dissolve it when and in the manner
I choose, and that will be as soon as
you have satisfied the orticles under
which  We sailed upon  this cruise."
"What do you mean?"
"I'll accept the situntion ns I find
it. Yourself you've fixed the ransom of this couple at twenty thousand pieces, and, as I gather, the
lady is to be your perquisite. But
why should she he your perquisite
more than another's, seeing that she
belongs by the orticles to all of us,
as a prize of war? However, I'll
not dispute her to you if you are
prepared to buy her."

Captain Blood drew forth n small
bag, twenty pearls poured into his
hand, and Caluisiic appraised Ihem
as worth the ransom. Levasseur in
his anger sprang at Cahusae, and i
blow scattered the pearls in tho sand
The men dived for them.
Levasseur, bis band on his sword,
his face it white mask of rage, confronted Captain   Blood.
"You do not take ber while I live!"
ho cried.
"Then I'll take her when you're
dead," said Captain Blood, and his
own  blade   flashed  in tlv sunlight.
It was soon over. When, with
both lungs transfixed, be lay prone
on the while sand, coughing out his
rascally life, Captain Blood looked
calmly at  Cahusae across the  body.
"I think that cancels the articles
between  us,"  be  said.
With soulless, cynical eyes Cahusae and his mates considered the
twitching body of their recent leader, Captain Blood bad broughl them
to find Levasseur guilty of the ,)IU'

offense they deemed unpardonable,
the crime of appropriating to himself something whicli might be converted into gold and shared amongst

Blood added something to quicken
their  decision.

In regard to thc proposed summer
convention, Mr. Hay said that lnvermere had invited them to hold the
convention there. This apparently
met with the approval of all tho
other locals from Golden to Newgale. It wns therefor,, likely that
it would be thc place for the convention on August 1st, tentative
plans   for which ho gave.
Following Mr. Hny, Mr. Charles
Good, provincial poultry instructor
nt Nelson, gave a most beneficial
talk on thc matter of poultry. In
Mr. Good the department doubtless
has a man who knows what ho is
talking about when it comes lo poultry. If Mr. Good's advice is sought
and followed the prospective poultry mna will not go far wrong.
Through actual experience nnd results Mr. Good was able to pay a
compliment to B. C. when he stated
that the highest producing hens
could be raised right here in B. C„
giving in proof thc fact that at Creston there was a hen thnt hnd laid
818 eggs in 305 days, aad that nt
Ottawa B. C. was lending iu the record test there. For the farmer he
recommended a flock of 150 birds.
He did not recommend hntching but
purchasing baby chicks from n reliable source. This, he showed clearly,
was the most profitable. He recommended keeping only pullets. He
pointed out the great market there

1 In regard to feeding, he mentioned
i the advantage of tho usq of artificial

! heen reached through years of ex-
i porience. This was that the hen
should be made to oat for 12 hours,

lit was hotter to koop the cokerels

of certain dealers in baby chicks,
he explained minutely the method
I they adopted in getting the best of

I Fur protection against vermin he
I would not recommend lime wash, as
; it draws dampness, but in its place
he suggested the use of a solution of
four purls of crank case oil und one
part of creolin. This irtiould he used
on roosts nnd place where mites
usually are found. It was not necessary to wnsh tho entity house.
Sir. (rood's remarks were attentively
listened to and called forth many
questions when concluded.
The chairman, Mr, A. B. Smith, nt
ihis point referred to the regrettable
loss of the late Mr. Hamilton, and
paid tribute to his value as a member of the institute.

Strong Position
Ratcliffe & Stewart are in receipt
of a letter, dated Toronto, Mny 20th,
from their principals, the Durant
Motors of Canada, the manufacturers of the Star car. In thia letter
they make reference to certain state-
ments claimed to have been made
by their opposition from time to
time during the four years in which
they have been in business. They
also pointed out that despite this
continued knocking, their career has
been one of continued success, and
in order to counteract what they
term pernicious propaganda, they
gave their dealers a financial statement ns of April 30th of this year,
which is guaranteed to be correct
by them. They claim to he the 3rd
lurgest motor car manufacturers and
merchandisers iu  Canada, and also
guve notice that $1,000 would be
paid to any individual who proves
that the financial condition of the
Company as stated is not correct,
Their statement is as follows:

last week. The University Commission in 1018 made special reference
to the fact that it was the intention
of the provincial government to
lease to tbe churches, on application,
land for the building of denominational colleges at Point Grey. Under this arrangement leases of five acres each were to be available to
churches that made application satisfactory to the board of governors
of th,, University and the government.
