Another Victory.
FERNIE NEWS
IA WONDERFUL DISTRICT
SCOKE  13 TO * FOR  CRANBROOK
It  Means a Record of Ten Victories In Ten Games This
Season.
CRANBROOK   IS  PROUD   OP   THE   TEAM
It is the same old story.
Just a difference in figures.  That's al).
Craubrook played Calgary. Who
won? Say, stranger, where are you
from that you should ask such a question?   Craubrook, of course.
Haven't they played 10 games this
season?   And haven't they won 10?
The scalps of Kast Kootenay hang at
their belts, and four scalps from Alberta,
one from Pincher, two from Medicine
Hat, aud now Calgary relinquishes a
goary, hoary forelock.
The boys left lust Sunday. They
traveled nearly 24 hours and theu played. That dou't make any difference
with that aggregation. They could go
to the moou and win within 60 minutes
after they got there.
Can jamieson pitch? Alt mine cannon ball. And that man Bertram! Well,
he bus been catching freight trains for
years, aud a cannon ball is dead eaity.
Malliusou played first. Did you ever
see a piece of meat drop Into the mouth
of 11 St. Bernard dog. It can't escape.
That's Malliuson on fitst. He eats
them, and then keeps ou smiling. Aud
theu Hampden ami Tetllock 011 second
aud third, finishes up the triangle of
sure things. Aud that shortstop, Wat-
soul That nice looking, curly headed
buy, who starts the girls clapping their
hands. He goes after a hot ball like a
trout after a grass hopper. An eye like
an eagle, a movement like a streak of
lightning, he gelt there with both feet
aud both liniids tvei y lime. Tbe outfield is a winner, but with Jamieson
pitching   Ihey   don't   get   much   to   do.
Harry Nevin, the mnn wbo makes the
opposition crazy with his coaching, is
pool! A fly In his Held Is like a silver
dollar thrown on the bar with a thirsty
crowd; it is goue. Hughes and Thorp
are the other two, and they uiuke u solid
wall.
Tbe boys play ball all the tiuie. They
don't booze, but are ready tu work aud
attend strictly to business, Iv II. Small,
the manager, looks after them. They
like blm, aud what be says, goes, when
ou a trip. And then they are all gentlemen. Cranbrook is proud of tbem as
players aud individuals.
Hurrah for the base bait boys!
Crunlirook waa defeated lu the second game

Harry Lindley Is All Rlfhl.
Tbe welt known comediau, Harry
Lindley, arrived last Friday with his
company. They played to big crowds
Friday, Saturday, Monday aud Tuesday
nights, aud gave the veiy best of satis
faction, His company is very good, but
of course Harry himself is the big part
of the show. He is good iu what ever he
does, and as an entertainer be is a big
winner, Kach night he kept the crowds
roaring wiih laughter hy his humor,
and at times be would by a touch of
pathos bring tears to runny eyes. The
Harry Lindley company is'always sure
of a big house iu Cranbrook. Specialties by Little Mystic, Mariott Brotbers
and Miss Natol were excellent.

Mlnlug Notes.
T. G. Blackstock, vice-president ofthe
War Kngle and the Center Slur mining
mining companies, is auihoiity for the
statement that his companies have solved the problem ot Irealiug fs ore on a
profitable basis. If ihis can be dune it
will prove a greal thing fur Rossland.
And when f$ ore can be treated iu South
Lust Kootenny this district will experience an em of prosperity thut no man
ever dreamed of.
It is said that the I.eRui will soon
ship 30,000 tons of ore per month.
Mining is having a great revival in
Rossland aud lhe town wilt soon he in
better shape than ever before.
Treatment ol five dollar ore at a profit
would make a great country of the St.
Mary's Valley.
Big Railway Business.
Nelson Tribune: The movement of
freight on the railways entering Nelson
shows a decided improvement. This is
caused, In a great pari, by the resumption of work at ihe Crows Nest company's
coal uiiues at Fernie, Michel and Morrissey. The C. P. R. is now operating
three 15-car barges from the K-iotenay
landing slip. These barges make a
round trip a day, aud as they carry full
loads each way, It will be seeu that the
tonnage bandied totals considerable
every thirty days,
Marvelous Resources of South East

UNTOLD WEALTH TO BE DEVOLOPED
Few People Realize the Possibilities
of This Section and Opportunities Presented.
FIVE YEARS WILL MAKE MANY CHANGES
Stop and think about it.
Meu ure naturally .teekiug prosperous
fields for business. This is the age of
rustle and get there. That is what has
developed the vast territury ofthe United States, und what is bringing prosperity lo Cunada. And today there is not a
section if country in Cunada or the Uniled Status that lias such a bright future
us has S mill Ivust Kooienay. lu fact, il
is impossible fur any uiuu to conceive
what tin? future may bring forth. It Is
full to ovei flowing with undeveloped resources, und men with money are just
coming to a realization of this fact. The
coal proposition is already au established fact, uud yet the industry is still in its
infancy. There are vast coul fields in
the south eastern portion ofthe district
thai have not as yet heen touched, and
when tbey are being developed will add
thousands lo lhe present population
Tbe lumber industry is just getting under headway, nud williin the next twelve
mouths will assume immense proportions nud give to the district a large
payroll 12 months iu the year. The
gradual reduction in cost in the treatment of ores by modern methods is
bringing petmanent prosperity nearer to
tbe doors of the district each month.
Soulh lv 1st Kooienay is a vast storehouse of low grade ore, as well as having
many high grade propositions, and tbe
levelopiueut of these properties mean
the employment ot thousands of men in
the near future, and big returns for capital invested. Tbe agricultural interests
are increasing iu importance with the
Increase lu population, and the time ia
uot far distant when the rich valley* of
the 10k, Kooteuay and Moyie will be
producing graiu aud vegetables In vest
quantities, Iu addition to these re
sources are those_of iron aud oil. P.x"
perlmenis are being made along theae
lines, und it is now almost an assured
certdint) that both iron and oil will be
found iu paying quantities. If this
proves to be tbe case millions of capital
will be invested aud commercially thc
district will be revolutionized.
These conditions are simply as they
actually exist. There ts no exaggeration, no boom, no attempt to mislead.
The statements are simply cold facts
If a mau Were to travel the country over
be could uot find a section tbat can
promise more for the future than South
Kast Kooteuay. A blind man can see it
now, and tbut is why The Herald feels
safe in buying that this ia the place for a
man with capital, 01 a man with energy
aud intelligence. No better can be
found.	
Work Nearlog Completiea.
Frank Sentinel: Next month will ace
the Flunk and Grassy Mountain railroad completed and turned over to tbe
owners. The grades and cuts have been
nearly all finished and work on the
many trestles, culverta and bridges
iiliuig lhe line is belug rapidly pushed
ahead. Tbe ties are being delivered
und as the steel is laying at Macleod
ready fur immediate delivery here, tiack-
laying should commence within the next
ten days"
This company will own and operate
ttieir uwn Icoiuotives and to a certain
extent the rolling stock, but will depend
upon the C, P U. for the cars for shipping their coal to market, while coke ovens will be built for cuking Ibe surplus
product.
When this milio.nl is completed the
Oold Creek collieries will put on a big
force uf men aud Gold creek will be the
scene uf a great amount of activity.
A Card.
September t, 190a.
To the Business Meuof Cranbrook and
Vicinity and the Public:
As will he seen by notices In tbfa Issue
of Tlie Herald I have today entered Into
a partnership wiih Messrs. Beale and Klwell. I therefore take this opportunity
of thanking the business men and public
generally for the very loyal support tbey
have given me for the past four and a
half years, which has been aud is moat
thoroughly appreciated by me, I can
assure my old friends that any business
iiistrin?Lil to the new firm will have
most careful attention, and I may add
that so far as insurance is concerned I
shall persnnnlly lake care of that branch
ofthe business,
Once mote thanking all my friends, 1
remain, Yours Truly,
John Hutchison, or "Hutch."
All of the lumber companies are kept
busy these d iys Thru* Is no let up
on tin? demand for their product.
DENIES   THE   CHARUE
Mr. Stockelt Says the Coal Company la
Acting la Oood Faith.
Thomas R. Stockett, Jr., general superintendent of the Crows Nest Pass Coal
company's mines, in an interview with
a newspaper reporter at Nanaimo tbe
other day, regarding the statement that
the company was employing men in
Pennsylvania to work iu the mines here,
said that he knew absolutely nothing
about the attempt to hire men in Pennsylvania for the Fernie miues, and if
such an attempt was being made he
would know of it. At tbe present time
he was not needing any meu at Fernie.
and only a few men could be given employment in the other mines.
So far as the compiuy was concerned
they had made an agreement with thc
men aud were acting in good faith, and
if at the expiration of two mouths, a
majority of ihe underground workers
voted to return to the uld system, Ibe
company would couipl) with the request.
The compauy was working in anticipation that tlie miners at Fernie would
contiuue working, and had uo intention
of making an attempt to violate the
agreeiueut wheu the two months expired.
Id thus acting iu goud faith, the company expected the men were doing the
same, and If they would keep their heads
and act reasonably he hail nu doubt au
amicable agreement would tie arrived at
by which the miners and company
would work harmoniously together.

Kdltor The Dally News —On the Ulh
inst., I sent a piece of -.hale to the provincial mineralogist to have it examined
and I received the following reply:
Victoria Aug. IStb.
De;r Sir:—Yout favor of the llthlist
baa been referred to ine. The sample of
shale contains crude petroleum. Tbe
clay scut would not be suitable: they are
too fusible.
Herbert Carm!chael.
Public Anallat and Assayer for B. C.
This petroleum bearing shale Is found
at tbe base nf the Carboniferous range,
lying southwest from Pel nie town.
TUeae shales can be traced as far as
Morrissey. Knowing something of tbe
habitat of petroleum, with a friend, 1
went down the Talley nine miles, ami
examined the rocks dne west from tbe
C. P. It. depot at Morrissey. Calcareoua
sandatone and light porous limestone
atrew tbe ground at this point. Tbese
when atrnck with a hammer gave off a
peculiar oily odor, bu: different to tbe
odor given off by the shales further up
the valley. Finding a tine grained black
rock In the "wash," I broke It and exposed the Inner surface the to sun. Ia a
short time it sweated oil. Near here
the Carboniferous recks came in co:-
tact with the Cambraln, and form with
It a synclinal basin or trough.
In my judgment, this portion of tbe
valley Is worth tbe attention of tbe
mining geologist and oil expert.

THE   VOTERS'   LIST.
Tbe Herald led some people astray
last week by the publication of a notice
regarding the voters' list, It was right
as far as it went, but it did not go tar
enough, and therefore left a number
laboring under a misapprehension ot the
facts. The Phoenix Pioneer gol into the
same trouble nnd ofl't*rs an explanation
thai completely covers the situation.
The idea, more or less prevalent, that
all existing voters' lists will be cancelled
on the last day of August mid new lists
be commenced beginning with the first
duy of September Is wrung. There are
two acls dealing with this question, the
Redistribution Act and the Provincial
Klecttona Act. Section 5 of the former
provides that after thc coming into force
ofthe Act the register of voters will be
cancelled, the date fixed for lhe coming
into effect of the act being upon the dissolution of the present Legislative Assembly (Section 13). Section 6 requires
every person desiring to he registered to
apply lo the collector of votes according

Act.
Tbis latter measure, that Is lo say, the

HOOD   MAN-FOR   HIS   DISTRICT.
Minister Wells is very prompt when it
comes to his district. The question of
the Paradise road came tip two weeks
ago, and already it has been settled. No
wonder the Wilmer Outcrop goes into
ecstasies of delight over tbe honorable
gentleman's promptness, as follows:
It is a pleasure once more to note the
promptness with which our member,
Hon. Mr. Wells, gives attention to the
requests of his constituents, and tbis is
but one instance in many iu which his
zeal for the welfare of this district has
shown itself at a critical moment to be
of high grade.
Aud yel fur two yenrs this part of the
district has been endeavoring to get an
important road through to Perry creek,
and all that has been done is to use $500
to start n trail, ami the money had to be
deducted from other improvements contemplated In the district. The Herald
regrets that it cannot voice the sentiments expressed by the Outcrop,

WHAT   WILL   HI*   SAY?
Hon. I. ft. Prior, minister of mines,
while in Phoenix told tlie editor of the
Pioneer that he was in favor of party
lines in provincial politics. While In
Cranbrook the same gentleman told the
editor of The Herald thnt he was not in
favor of party lines. Is it the difference
in altilude or association that causes this
divergent expression of opinion on an
important subject?—Cranbrook Herald.
It's uow up lo the gallant Colonel to
explain bow tbis is thus.—Phoenix Pioneer.
The Colonel has evidently put bis fool
iu It, or he changed bis mind after conferring with Dave Cur ley at Nelsou.
EDITORIAL   NOTES.
There is sonic kicking on the personnel of the commission appointed to investigate the Fernie mine disaster. It is
too early for that, The province don't
want a coal mine commission nor a miners1 commission, It wants an honest
commission to deal honestly wllh the
facts presented. Until the commission
appointed demonstrates that it cannot
do this, il is heller to refrain from criticism. 	
It looks very much ns if the Conservatives of British Columbia were getting
iu line for nn election.
Some people nre hard to please. Because Premier Laurier is receiving great
attention in tbe old country, tbey find
fault wilb blm. If he lacked lhe ability
to do this tbey would, of course, find
fault just the suni*.
The cereal yield in Canada Ibis year
will he over 300,000,060 bushels. Th's
is an Increase over all pi evious records
and is ni racing the ntteution of lhe
world to Prosperous Canada.

Hog^«
Kieltwr.lsiui.
Widow Jiisuti was tbo rt'iii-t nf Farmer Jitsoii, nnd sin- cnri'lcd mi iin- iiiini
niter his ili'iitif with t'vcii uuni' wisdom
than hu hml Bhowi) lilmsetC posscBsml
of. Sho wna still on tin- brighter Bldo
of forty, t'uii* to look upon uml wiih nt
pence with ull hor neighbors until ilu*
ono to tin- east of hot Bold out nml a
strttuger moved In,
ilu wns u mini of middle age nnmed
I Chlslmlm, nml, botng u widower, hla
slater mannged tho hotiso for him.   if
'tbu Willow JiiHOti wns ono Of lliosu who
I wondered what sort of mini be was,
folic won the lirst to lint) it out. Among
her live Htoek that .vent* wcr« n doston
bogs, nnd it wns the fault of bvr hired
I mnn that there were holos lu tbe
fences through which thoy mado tbelr
way into the potato Hold of the new
neighbor. She hud just finished hor
broalifnst one morning when Clilsliolin
wna announced. He had tlio courtesy
to lift his hat nnd give bis nnme, but
be also bad the bluntness to add:
"Madam, your Infernal hogs hnve
rooted up half an aero of potatoes for
me, and If you can't manage to keep
Vin homo I'll shoot every ono of 'eml"
She looked nt blm nml saw that ho
traa above tbe ordinary and felt that
had Bhe been Introduced in the conven-
tional way she would have been pleased to make bis acquaintance. Uut his
rude greeting angered ber, nnd, being a
woman with a mind of ber own, she
at once replied: j
"I can pay for all tbe potatoes on
four farm, and If you come bore to I
threaten me you'll find a woman who
don't senre!"
"Well, you keep your hogs at borne."
"And you keep yourself In tbe same
place."
That wob tbe flrst ttlt. The fences
were mended and the hogs were in despair when a high wind blew a gate
open, and the drove spent the night In
the same potato Held. Next morning
Chisholm drove ten of them home and
■aid to Widow Jason:
"Mndam, there are dead hogs belonging to you lu my Hold. Will you have
tbem removed or shall I bury them?"
"You killed them, did you7" she asked.
"I did. I told you 1 would, nod I
did"
"Then I'll have tbe law ou you."
"Go ahead."
She went to law, and there was a
suit, and she was Ingloriously beaten.
hog lot wore thoroughly ra.inlred, aad
for four weeks the porkers hud to
make the host of their sad lot. Then
Josh left llie bars down one night, uud
as the widow was getting breakfast
she beard tlie crack of a ride. Half an
liuiir Inter Mr. ('hlsholm appeared to
say:
"linud morning, Mrs. .Tiihou, Those
wi'i'ii-iii'il botfB of yours rooted up luy
giil-ilcu lusi night, uud tills liiumlng 1
killed iititithi'i- of thein. If yuu want
another lawsuit, I'll drive you to town
in my own buggy."
"And you -you've shot another?" alio
gasped,
"I hnvo."
"Then I'd like to shoot youi You aro
the meanest mau in tho statu of Ohio!"
"Yi's'iu," ho replied, with a how ua
ho turned nwny.
Widow Jason drove to town to consult hor lawyer again, There wiih $10
in It for lilm, win or lose, but this time
Mi-. Glilshohn wns arrested for mnll-
clous poi'Becutlon, In his testimony he
roforred to the plaintiff aa "that lady"
uml exhibited uo animus whatever, but
he also proved that ho wns the ono per-
sccutcd, The widow's hogs would not
let lilm alone. She wns beaten again,
nnd this time a stout pen was built,
and the bogs wore shut up. The farmers had of course tuken aides. Some
contended that Chisholm bad exhibited
a menu and un neighborly spirit and
others thut thc widow had been derelict fn not mending her fences, and
there was much talk and discussion.
It occurred now and then that the two
principals mot on tlie highway or at
tlio crossroads mooting hoiiBe, but
while Chisholm lifted his hat and bowed us If there was nothing ou his mind
the widow, except for her blazing eyee,
seemed enrved of stone.
That pen held the hogs for a long
six weeks, but hogpens have their
weak points, and patience and perseverance wlh seek them out. The hot
sun warped a board and made an opening, and the industrious swine enlarged
It until one night they all passed out
and headed straight for the next farm.
Tliey fetched up aiuoug the cabbages,
pumpkins, squashes, melons aud carrots, and during the long hours of
darkness thoy ran riot. Tbey were
missed from the pen early next morning, and the widow sat dowu on the
doorstep aad cried. She cried because
she wns vexed, nud she cried because
she wus a woman. Every minute Bhe
expected to hear the crack of Cbis-
bolm's rifle, nnd she fully realized that
any further appeal to the Inw would
be wasted. She was vexed at lhe
hogs, at Josb and ut Chisholm. Her
tears were still fulling whon the new
neighbor stood bofore ber and bowid
and said:
"Mrs. Jnson, those blamed hogs of
yours damaged me a hundred dollnis'
worth lust night."
"And how many more have you killed?" she asked.
"None.   I've Just driven 'em home."
"But why—why"—
"Because I see how It Is. I must
either kill off your whole drove or
build a pen myself. I shall come over
tonight to talk to you about It."
He appeared nn hour nfter supper,
mul it was il o'clock before be w»nt
home. Even then the "talk" was not
finished. As a matter of fact It required a groat ninny evenings nnd wns
only concluded one winter's night
when she laid her bend on his shoulder
nml snld:
."If you aro really sure thnt you love
me, then the farm, the bogs and I nm
yours, ami we'll bo married New
Year's dny."
JOHN   FOUND  UIMMXl:*  A   UOXBD MAN.
Womanlike she fell prolty bitter over
It, but ul llto Hitiuc lime she bud (o
glvo Mr. Clilsliolm credit fur lock of
nuy bitterness, Uo staled bis ens., in
jtllO mildest milliner and even Bpoko
llilghly of her iih a neighbor. When
sbo loiiii'hi'd homo after the lawsuit,
mIio salil Id her hired man:
I   "Josh, If lliat mini (ijlsholm comos
on my Inml again 1 wnnt you to throw
liliu nlT."
1 •'Ves'lD, I'll do ll," replied the nttinly
Josh.

liiiiisu when Josh bended blm olt nml
ordered blm back. He refused lo go,
niul Josh laid hold of lilm to do (lie

be mt ou the ground with n handful of
g-fflu to his bleeding nose the victor
passed ou to the woman, who bad wit-
DOISCd the fraCBI from the front steps,
Lifting his bat, he snld:
"Madam, those hogs of yours have
been at It again this time lu my cotu-
fleld-aml I've had to kill another."
"Have you dared to kill another of
my lings V" she demanded as ber cheeks
IIiiiiiciI and her eyes Unshed.
"I have.   Shall I bury blm?"
"Sir, you are fl Bcotnidrell"
"And you ure a charming widow!"
She drove to town ut once to see her
lawyer. There was $10 In the case for
blm, win or lose, and bo advised ber to
sue, Shu sued and got beaten ngnln.
Tho defendant referred lo her In the
highest terms, but he also proved that
hor fences wero out of repair. Tbo
lawyer saw $10 moro In II, win or lose,
und udvlsed Josh to prosecute fur assault and battery. Josh brought bla
swollon uoso aud black eye Inlo court
nnd wna beaten by several lengths. Ilu

,    "i HAT "MONTREAL WHALE.
A Buiuuruui  I'l-cumUl nm wl    lilt   IVIml*-
shlp'i   Hf-mantM*   Trip  L'p   th. St.
I,»wrtno*~li u ii * iiii story t
Tl*e whale which strayed up to
Montreal uud stranded itself has
i caused one of the small sensations of
the past week. Tho Montreal papers have not treated bis whal*
ship's memorable (rip up tlm Bt.
Lawrence with tho respect and attention due such n distinguished visitor. In fact tbo event has been
treated with suih levity nud IndltTor-
oiico iii Montreal tlmt people in this
.city, says tho Toronto World, axe
wondering whether there was u
wlmlo there or not. The Improsston
got abroad thnt someone going home
from 0110 ol tho clubs bud •'kuI tin,"
uml that liis vision wus distorted by
tho rushing waters of tho St. ■ .Lawrence, su that Instead of serpents
nml crawling things bo Baw a whale.
Anotlior improbability, in tlm view
of land lubbers, wus that tho whalo
should Btrand itself on a sandbar or
rock. It bus always boon under-
Stood that u Well brought up whale
could soo where it wns going, and
tbe stories we have read about
whales "swatting" boats und capsizing would-ho wlmlo captors into
the sen. confirmed that Impression.
Thon again, the reports that a number of citizens had shot into the
forty-foot monster several scores of
bullets without appreciable damage
to its anatomy, was another puzzler, and we wondered why a crew
of river men was not organized and
equipped with harpoons and other
whale-killing devices fn order that
the valuable bones aud oil contained
in the carcass might be secured in
the interests of cornmercel But the
newspapers kept working oil insinuating jokes about tho whale until the
truth of the story was completely
discounted. On Saturday, however,
news came to hand to the effect thnt
the whule had got out of dry dock,
so to speak, and taken a trial spin
or two, and thnt a chap who went
with an old gun to pour some more
lead into it had been tricked by liis
weapon and received a Wound moro
or less serious.
A heated   discussion  was   brought
on in Toronto when one of a group
of men characterized the whole thing
as a flshstory.   He was at once met
with the assertion tlmt a whale was
not a (ish, and forthwith ensued an
argument as noisy as ono would hear
in a   political   caucus.       Webster's
Unabridged     was sought, and     the
first "whale" found thero was    the
verb, meaning "to lash with stripes;
to whale, to thrash, to drub." This
was not satisfactory,  but the   next
j "whale," defined as a noun, wus better,     and     the mnn who called tha
Alnmnml a fish went away and     bid
■ himself.     Noah Webster said a whale
' was:     "Any aquatic Mammal of the
order cetacen, especially any one oi
the large species, some of which be-
! come nearly one hundred feet long."
I Webster's verdict  was  accepted,   but
J the     explanatory note Immediately
following led to further speculation.
j There     nre two groups of      whales,
namely the Odoritccete whale, which
has teeth,as tha cachalot o; spuria
whalo:    ami   tbe Mysticeto    whalo,
I which    is   without teeth,   hut    bus
: plates of baleen or whalebone, hanging from the upper Jaw.     The most
important     species     of    w half-hone
] whale nro the bowhead,   or   Greon-
| Antarctic whale, tho grey whale, tbo
humpback, the finback and the rorqual.     What we want  to know     ie
whether tin* Montreal whale   is     a
! sperm wlmlo or a bono whalo,    and
whether, if n bone whale, it is n rorqual, a finback or a humpback. Whon
this Information is given tbo people
may be Induced to believe there     is
; or has been a whale in the harbor.

representatives appointed by tbe several Uinta Assemblies, lo whom,
meeting at Now York, all royal     re-
ouisitioiis for assistance should be

attached,     that tho King's approval
should bo necessary in tho ease of
tbe appointment of each member, and
that the tenure of oflico should bs

the proposition received at the hands
of the^colonists.

To speak of the pleasures of the German student and make no mention of
beer would bo like the play of "Ham-
lot" with the part of the melancholy
Dune left out. As the student strolls
about the country or the city, In the
music halls and theaters, at bis social
gatherings of nil kinds, at dinner or nt
supper, he steadily drinks bis beer.
The code of health drinking nnd tbe
etiquette of tbe drinking bout nro complicated aud most punctually observed.

great drinking bout —Jubilees of renowned professors, club anniversaries,

true story: One of tho Separate

Another school In London oast is
known as the Holy Angels. Tlie other day boys from these two geographically separated schools met, and,

Serious, however — occurred whereupon a passerby heard om small
boy shouting to another lustily :
"Come quick! Come quick! The
St. Peter's kids aro thrashing the
Holy Angels!" —London Advertiser.
A Cm. Iu Paint.
At Upper Canada College, Toronto, recently, one of the teachers, In
talking to a class, asked thy boys to
give examples of proper nouns that
could have uo plural. A small boy
raised his hnnd promptly, uud was
asked to mnko answer. "Hell, sir,"
suid    tho    boy, mentioning a place
that certainly is -.angular enough,

Here is a Scottish newspaper. Tin
Dally Journal of Aberdeen, .with *
really eloquent defence ot Oanadry
against Kipling's implied suggestion
that snow plays a part la oue dall^
'The title of 'Our Lady nt Wa
Snows,' " says the Scottish writer*
"bestowed on Canada in a haphaa.
aid sort of manner by Eudyar'd Kfg*
ling, is not at all a hippy onej
as it upplies to a season 0&1& 1
have seen the grapes hanging la'
luxuriant bunches to the vinee Ini
a Quebec garden, and the flelda 01
tomatoes grow crimson la th**
warm sunshine; I hava lingered lh'
the golden wheatfleldi fn the evening and listened to the myriad
sounds of the cricket and grass*
hopper; I have walked amid tba
cedar trees in nn Ontario awamp
when the sunset glow hnd faded,
and watched the fireflies darting to
and fro like shooting stars; und I
have watched the tiny humming-bird
with plumage that rivalled tho gully-
painted butterflies, contesting with
the bee for iho honey that, lay within the swei't-jtutf-lling flowers.
Scenes like these me not associated
with a land of never-ending winter. Consequently there can be
no greater mistake than to imagine, ns too many people do, that
Canada is a semi-Arctic country
out of which little good can come.
And yet, what do we find? According to tbo returns of tbe Hoard of
Trade fully 65,000 to 7.-").000 Britisher* went to live in the United
Slates during the past year, while
only IU,ouu or 13,000 weut to
Canada. 'There is no reason to
doubt that if the resources und natural wealth of the Dominion of
Canada were more generally known
in tbis country, we would soon hear
the last of the term "American"
as applied to Canadian products,and
United States producers would no
longer receive credit for Canadian
goods, in many chaps BUperlor to
their own. Those wbo guide the
destinies of the Dominion think
that the Stars and Stripes bavo
overshadowed lhe Maple Loaf long
enough. Every true Briton will be
of the same opinion."

Canadians generally will be interested in learning that Dr. J. Beat-
tie Crozicr, author of the famous
work, "History of Intellectual Development," has bepn selected as
one of the 300 representatives of
the empire lo the splendid ten-
guinea volume of portraits nnd, biographies which the Grosvenor Press
are bringing out. Tbe work consists of representative men of every
class outside ot lhe military nnd
civil services, who will have a
volume to themselves. Dr. Crozler
will be one of tho representatives
of the department of philosophy.
Also, of course, he will stand ns one
of the representatives of Canada, a
distinction he hns well earned, nnd
on which bis countrymen will
warmly congratulate him.
The I.ovln--a*>ia of Dogs.
I have heard tbe watchdog's honest bark' bay deep-voiced welcome
to me as 1 headed for the pear tree
after dark, I believe Ihc fellow that
owned thc pear tree chose to think
that lha dog wns giving him warning of my approach, but I know
better. 1 had never given that particular dog any reason to dislike me
and tht fact that his noisy welcome
did bring the owner of the tree Into
his orchard with a gun was not
the   dog's fault.    It   wus  merely   due
to the circumstance that, the dog
in his canine Ignorance welcomed me
too vociferously.
