if it should happen that men who
ire not in this class succeed In playing on the weaknesses of conventions;
or by means of friendly wire-pulling
manage to secure party nominations; they must not count on the

We should like to give to the Lib-

The mere fact that they become authorized to parade themselves as the

land thieves. The character of Mr.
Cotsworth—of whom tho Ministerial
Association speaks highly- is not the

the province been looted'.' Did thc government stand by while the looters
were at work without endeavoring to

McBride government came to power
twelve years ago the revenue of the

the total revenue, including the province's half of the receipts from the

Mighty few men ln this world get

Sometimes we think the fortunes of

The following has heen banded in
for publication by a Cranhrook lady.
The prayer is timely and should prove
a comfort to the many mothers In
Cranbrook who have sons now serving
with the colors:
Father, we believe In Thee; \v
trust Thee stay Thou with us; we do
not ask Thee to lift the veil If always
we know that Thou art there for life
or for death; what do we need beside? When we are very weary take
us in Thy arms and close tbem round
us; give peace to those we love and
the courage to march on and fight,
and by Thy merciful power may the
great word be accomplished in us;
for If we have been planted together ln
the likeness of Christ's death we shall
be also iu the likeness of His resurrection.     Amen.
Many of our farmers, especially in
tiie more progressive communities in
the west, are beginning to realize that
tholr true interests are best served

"It was back in Quincy, 111., in 1885,
during President's Cleveland's first
administration, that I discovered I
could become a human hardware
store witiiout half trying," said Fitzgerald, as he propped himself up on
one elbow of his cot and told his
story iu a rich brogue. "There was no
work iu sight, just like times are
now, and I finally decided to end my
life, after I had gone for a week without eating. But (lid I go and lay down
in front of a train or jump off a
bridge?   t did not.
"I wont out along tlie railroad track
and picked up several pebbles that
were small enough to swallow, and
tfien I sneaked up to a house where
they were making repairs and stole a
handful of shingle nails. And I swallowed them and then wont out alongside tho track and lay down to die.
"I fell asleep, I woke next morning
and was surprised to find I was not
dead. I was not feeling any discomfort from tho nails and stones in my
stomach. And then I knew that I
need never go hungry again."

be the usual reply. And then he
would crunch tho glass lu his teeth
and gulp it down. SometimoH. if the
bartender objected to tlie feat, ho
would borrow a jackkuifo and swallow it with ease. Or It might be
