GOLD DUST TWINS OF RA1LWAYD0M
Canadians who have put a Sizable Crack in the
Face of Proverbial Philosophy
lJ
Thorp is no law for the superman, lie may, aud sometimc-H lie
lines, break anything uml evorything
from thu ten commandments to   tho
huwH of proverbial philosophy. The
Uold-Dust Twins of Rallwaydom,
Mnckeii/.lu anil Mann are supermen.
We do not hint thai Ihey break the
lea eoiiiiuumlments. lu [act we
know th.'y do not excopt In a hum-
itnnii way, as we all do. Hut they
have put a sizeable crack in the
fair face of proverbial philosophy.
Proverbial phllosphy says: "A man
cannot lift himself hy bis boot
straps." Correct enough, as a proposition fn dynamics. Its fallacy, iu
the realm of financial enterprise, is
clearly demonstrated hy Mackenzie
and Mann. By their boot-straps
have they raised themselves to their /
present eminence. Tliey have a personal Invitation thn- must make tlie
late Motorman Keel) turn in his
grave.
In other words they have bung a
superb big bluff on the world, and
the world hasn't called it. So they
rake in the stakes, community leadership and wealth. They did not
profit without sharing. It was an
auspicious day for the country when
tliey pooled their hands.
Mann was born at Acton, Ontario,
of sturdy agricultural stock. He took
his intellectual baggage on at tlie
public school, from which he pulled
bis freight as soon as he could.
■'arming was too lackadaisical for
his vaulting soul. He went in for
the wild, adventurous, chancy life of
a lumberman. At twenty-one he
was a foreman. And bets arc on
that the men under him earned every
cent in their pay envelopes. After
that he went to Winnipeg and helped
to push the C.P.R. through to the
coast, -}Uilding west of Winnipeg to
the Selkirk.-*;. This was his true
starting point. His life work hnd
come.
Four years beforo Mann was born
Mackenzie was "mewling and puking

Ontario. He put In the time handicap by Advancing his education a

the section accepted the profits had a
way of growing he.-ut .fully less. Why
not own, as well ns hulld?
The answer to ihe question was
tho Candian Nutthim railway—a
line built less upon right-of-way ant
capital Mian upon the seK-cnnfideiice,
the confidence ia the country and the
confidence-inspiring faculty of two
men. The seed of thr road was the
purchase of a tooty little railway out
west—the "Lake Manitoba Itailway
and Canal Company " Out of that
purchase has sprung p. transcontinental thtl Is making tho CP.lt. and
O.T.P. take notice and bustle about.
It wan built- In an unprecedented
way.    UaUl a very few years    ago
few, outside those in the know, sensed what was doing. People saw »
number of short lines, apparently
abortive, stringing across Canada,
niori! or less parallel to lhe boundary. There was not connection between them, rail or organization.
Some of them ol lolled unkind taunts
from thu iailway-1,i,ilding critics, ns
utterly devoid of assignable purpose.
N'evet mind, Mackenzie nml Mann
read the criticism, laughed in their
sleeves aud went or. coolly building a
few more of tlie same kind—with
local and federal subsidies and municipal bonuses enough to help the
work along.
Then they began to connect up. We
sec the purpose now and marvel that
we did not see it before. A few
more miles of steel, and to the Canadian Northern proper will he added
the Cananian Northern Ontario and
the Canadian Northern (Juebcc.
These, with the Duluth, Itainy River
and Winnipeg Railway, the Halifax
and Southwestern Railway and the
Inverness railway, will be the bedplates of a transcontinental of sorts.
Out of pure love for the C.P.R. your
Uncle James J. Hill will make easy
connection facilities with his road.
Moreover, just the other day Mackenzie and Mann went over to England
and bought a steamship line, as un-
flutteringly as you or we could buy a
drink. When the first train reaches
the Pacific it is safe predicting that
there will be a leash of transpacific
greyhounds awaiting ft.
Of the two men, who must take
the bulk of the credit? Neither.
Kach of them is as indispensable as
the other. Each has his own function, however. Mackenzie is the
wizard financier, Mann is the builder
nnd spell-binder.
To build a railway in Canada
calls tor a double ended diplomacy.
The goodwill of tbe people must to-
gamed, and the confidence of the
moneyed men. Mann takes care of
the public. He gets in touch with
the politician—lieg pardon, ot com si*
mean the "statemian." Before hi
has been with him a day he convin-
s bim that tho charter sought is a
thing essential to the further continuance ot life, liberty and the pursuit
of happiness in that particular province or county. And the charter.
1 he subsidy and the bonus are thrust
into his hands with entreaties to go
ahead.
Ile has onl) failed onee. That
was when tbe Senate threw out the
Yukon Itailway Till. The suhsidy
was to be given in lands.     The Im-
filiation of the yellow journal car
toontst led him to picture the associate builders shovelling mountains
of gold, "diverted from the people's
Inheritance.''    There was outcry ami
OtO. On the Other hand, it was
nuile a feather in Mann's cap when
he won over the uncrowned king of

Sir Wilfrid Laurier has never looked so intensely happy during the
whole course of liis western tour as
he did last Wednesday, when he made
an excursion through the wheat fields
of Saskatchewan in the Yorkton district. Since lie left eastern provinces he has nut with a burnt-ont
country almost everywhere, and at
most of tlie places he has visited he '
has had to express his sympathy I
with the farmers on account of the
bad crop.
That afternoon the premier looked [
over vast areas under cultivation and \
on all hands the crop was admirable.
Tbe premier could scarcely believe
his ejes when be saw acres which
will yield 35 bushels Ol wheat and
15 bushels of oats. He turned round
to the Hon. i"!. P. (iraham, the minister of railways, who accompanied
hi in in the automobile, and declared
that the sight was om* which did his
heart good to see.
"We have even some better crops
further on," remarked Br. Cash, a
well known Yorkton townsman, but
Sir Wilfrid con! I not believe that a
better crop was possible and be .said
in his characteristic good humor,
"Good doctor, vou are boasting.''
It was good to see Canada's premier in the middle of a wheat field, lie
was less of sir Wilfrid Laurier the
statesman. Been on this trip, and
more of Wilfrid Laurier the man. The
responsibilities .•( office were forgotten, and he 'easted his eyes upon
the scene and away down in his
heart of hearts there was a genuine
thankfulness to (iod for His bounty
in this western land. It would have
been dillicult to find the premier
more truly happy. lie is happy
when he is receiving the miiltidinnus
crowds which are welcoming him all
along the line, he is happy when he
is receiving the i vpressions of loyalty ou every band, hut tberp is no
mistaking tlie fact that he is the
most happy When he is looking over
Ihe handiwork oi nature.
Sir Wtlfrlu won his way into the
hearts ol the people of Saskatchewan. When he appeared in the
streets the crowds surrounded and
showed the greatest eagerness to
shake tin- band of the grand old man.
The whole town watched the procession of close 'innii a dozen automobiles in route lo the wheat fields,
and sent him ofi with nn encouraging
cheer. If they could only have seen
htm in the wheat fields they would
have seen something of the lighter
side of the premier. He was not
satisfied with a cursory glance over
the scene. Ile wanted to Ih* in the
very midst of it. Stopping his automobile, he exclaimed: "Look,
gentlemen, that's a sight worth
coming from Old Quebec to see."
Sir Wilfrid addressed a great meeting in tin* curling rink later in the
afternoon, rhli was his first visit
to Saskatchewan since his visit sixteen years ago The premier was
supported by the Hon. Waltor Scott
premier of Saskatchewan, and other
prominent men 'n ihe province.
An address was piesented to Sir
Wilfrid on bcli.il of the town council
and tbe board of trade. "The wide
west," it said, "on the threshold of
which you are now standing, recog-
ni/i'S its debt to your belief in its
greatness. The Grand Trunk I'nclfie
railway, over which you wilt   leave
the town tmnurnw, Is a single cvid-
ssjm ot your cnOdtM* in tlw yeast-
bilities of Western Canada. We recognize your service, not only to the
west, hut tu tbe whole. Dominion,
which is now united in sentiment.
No man has ever worked harder to
unite the hearts of the various representatives of 'lie nations who are
gathered here. Not only have you
united the hearts of all Canadians,
but you have strengthened the ties
which hind us to the Mother country."
lu reply Sir Wilfrid referred to the
blending of /aces in Canada. "In
joining the different races, to which
your address refers," he said, "1
have realized lb*' ambition of my
life. I cannot say yet that I have
succeeded in ihis task, hut 1 can sav
it has been the aim and object of
my ambition aver since 1 entered public life."
The premier ol Saskatchewan, the
Hon. Walter Scott, offered Sir Wilfrid a welcome on behalf of the
province. He told bim tlmt in lhat
province his name was especial!}
dear. Mr. Scott outlined the progress of Saskatchewan since Sir
Wilfrid's last visit Sixteen years ago.
"Then," he said, "we bad 950 miles
of railway in \he province, now we
have 3,500 miles. There was an absolute Innocence of any settlement iu
those days, hut now along every
mile of railway, there is development, activity and prosperity. In
1H!)0 our grain crop was three million bushels. Last year our aggregate crop was two hundred and euhi
million bushel-.
The Hon. Oeo. 1*. Graham, minis
ter of railways spoke upon the subject of transportation which be des-
ciibed as of the greatest importance
to the people of ihe western provinces. "The best method," he said,
"of getting ourselves from one place
to another, is very important, hut
the best, quickest and cheapest method of getting our produetl from the
place or production to the place of
consumption Is of iln- c rentes t importance, from the material standpoint, in a new country. While you
may think that the transportation
facilities of tbis country nre not as
good as they ought to be, I can tell
you that the Dominion of Canada.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier enjoyed a well
deserved rest at the town ol Melville, Sask. Even premiers are human, and when a man bus travelled
over more than half a continent ami
has been called upon lo earrv gut
exacting duties on the way, he needs
a little relaxation. Thursday Sir
Wilfrid Laurier took a quiet spin in
his automobile round the country.
If there is one thing Sir Wilfrid
Laurier enjoys more (ban another, it
is to be in tlie fresh air, and when
he has an opportunity of getting it
be lakes full advantage of it. The
premier was seen in a new role that
afternoon, t],*■ role of a baseball en
thustast. It is not often that a
western town can see such a distinguished, pitcher as the minister of
railways. I tut on Thursdaj the
Hon. Geo. P. 'iraham threw all cares
of projected railways to the winds
and played basenall. Such a light
was too much for the premier in
miss. As soon as he hiard that his
colleague was dl&Utgulshlng himself
and making a reputation for himself
as a baseball -layer he nipped into
bis auto tike i young man of twenty
Mrs and hurried to the scene bf
operations. When he gut there In*
saw in the middle of a meadow with
d../ens of spectators round him, the
minister of railways plav ing ball
with the avidity of an enthusiastic
youth. Tbe ball fever which had
attacked the minister of railways
bad also made its mark upon two
other members ol the government
party. K. V. Pardee, tin* chief goe-
ernment whip, .uid 1" M. Macdonald,
tbe member for Pictou, \ s Even
the premier of Saskatchewan, Hon
Walter Scott, polled off bis coat and
stood at guard on third base. Other
members of the government car wen-
arraigned in a mighty combat against
a formidable ipponrnt
The game was biought about under
unusual circumstances. During Ibe
train journey from Vorfcton lo Met
ville a messenger from tlie government quarters entered tbe press
camp and a challenge wus made tn a
baseball encounter. The press nun
were gam*' and without anv delay an
acceptance was sent to the miniate)

Many escuses are given Ior the unexpected result, but the BWtl feasible

Kvery member of thr- Laurier part)

of Melville. Where two years a*o
there were a Vw shacks there is now

came in contact practically every
day with from four lo half a do/en
people, chiefly Englishmen, looking
for land, some of them making purchases. This in itself was significant. I know very little about soil,
hut one can judge'from results, ami
any one visiting the ranches through-

WHY  LUMBERMEN   SlIOl'IJ) AD
VERTISE.
Tbe whole 'msim-ss world rests or
a foundation of confidence. When
confidence is gone, business is gone
You cannot make many sales when
confidence is lacking. II your customer lacks confidence iu you then
your entire efforts must go to building up in his- mind a feeling of confidence. Now, the greatest builder
of confidence is publicity—adverl is-
Ing. Lack of confidence is usually
due to ignorance. Unless you know
a man well you haven't confidence iu
bim. Unless you know a lwsin.
bouse well you haven't confidence in
that house. The greatest foe of ignorance is publicity. The saying
that "publicity corrects all abuses"
is a true one. Advertising makes
you acquainted with the public. It
gives people knowledge about you
and your goods, and knowledge is absolutely essential to confidence. Advertising makes people familiar willi
you, it unconsciously creales confidence. Without a doubt the grealesl
force today in the Interest of confidence—In the interest of credit, if ymi
will—is advertising.
THE VALUE OF THEIR MONEY.
No matter how warm the weather,
the people rend the newspapers'. In
these days of general education there
are few people who do not tal.e a
newspaper. It Is worth noting,
too, that It is closely read, fur mnnv
reasons, and the reasons vary with
the tastes of the meinliets nl the
household. That Is one reason why
The Herald, Cranbrook's popular
paper, is so successlul as an advertising medium. '( is not only a
good general newspaper, but it contains a variety of features Dial
claim and hold the attention or those
who are always anxfeus lo find iu
their newspaper something more than
the mere topics of llie flay. In
news, as in advertising, tbe people
who read The Herald get Ibe value
ot their money, and tbey nre ibe
people who have the money In buy
the standard quality goods thai Herald adveirtisers offer them.

lie granted to sliRinflhips for inclusions or similar special occasion*,
-shall hereafter undei no circumstances be issued.

with Sunday closing and prohibited

I'nder the old act it was possible
for th-rsty souls to secure drinks
during prohibited hours by merely registering at a hot -1 und thereby posing as nona Me guests. Under Llie
new act this is Impossible. It is
stipulated that I una full* travellers
may have H-tior wilh their meals,
such liquor to he consumed only in
the dining room, .lust what constitutes a bona line traveller is specifically defined so as to exclude tinman who rcgisls.'S merely for the
sake of getting a drink; and it is
specially enacted that excursionists
shall not he considered as travellers,
The list   of    those   to ul  hotel
keepers are forbidden to sell liquor is
infinitely more comprehensive under
the new act than under the old. Not
only arc bartenders forbidden lo supply liquor to ri.-i gnlzod dipsomaniacs, but it is also made an offence
to provide with liquor, either bj
sale, gilt or barter, "persons notoriously of drun ti*-i habits," "persons
addicted to drunken debauches or
•sprees," and * persons who openly
and notoriously waste their money
in liquor and in riotous thing to the
detriment of '.heir families or those
dependent upon them." Il is further
forbidden to sell liquor to minors,
vagrants or tramp*), prostitutes, Indians and chauffeur:! operating any
vehicle plying (or public hire."
Tbe facilities f r l.lacklisting any
person to whom it may appear desirable that liquor should not he
sold are infinitely extended; hereafter
it is to be within Uu power of the
superintendent of provincial police,
the license Inspector, or any chief nf
polite, upCli (•■elidi'imal communication in such premise* made tn him,
to interdict the sate of liquor to
"any person resilient or sojourning
within the province ol Hritish Columbia who bv t xc.-.slve drinking of
liquor, misspend.*, wastes or lessens
his estate, or Injure*, his health,    or

fine of nnt less than MOU and not
more than (300, or in default imprisonment tor no: more than nine
months. Under Ihe old act the
penalty for Infringement nf the regulations was cumulative, running for
the first offence from 150 to $250; for
the second offence from $200 to f.iOO;
and for the third frnm $500 to
$1000; it was fount! that under the
old regulations the cumulative nature
nf the fines seldom mine Into play
beyond the seem 1 offence, tlie licensing authnrities u-nally refusing tn

been twice convicted of infringements

much more severe than of yor... an
the number of linens* B which may he

a way not even hinted at In past
legislation. The Ilrsi part of tho
new act applies to the granting ot
the various- licenses and holds rood
only In unorganized districts, cities
and other municipalities lieing, of
course, governed in this respect hy
the provisions ot tho Municipal
Clauses Act, or, as In the case cf

remainder of the act applies to the
whole of tho province.

the unorganized districts, which
come under direct control of Iho
province, license fees* are raised in
every case. V-T.olitGiilcrs' nnd brewers' licenses are advanced from ¥200
to $.300 per ann-i' t. The number of
hotel licenses for the retail sate of
liquor in each district is limited, and
the standard o*. [irommodntlon demanded of all fl'itli licensed premises
Is very material* • relsed, the license

The se.vring of a hotel license under
the new act is at the same time a
much Larder mnl it r than under the
old regulations In the first place,
before a-iy license can in- granted,   a
petition must lie i-rntented to the
licensing authorities in favor of the
granting of such license, which petition must be sigtieu by two-thirds of
the householders li.'i.p within three
miles of the Ipol v-hiro it is proposed to cstablis-i th,* licensed hotel, no
foreigners bein^ |t*rmltted to appetr
as petit'oners, and wives and children being counted i.i the total of
population from widen a two-thirds
majority petition is required. It 's
further enacts! that until a locality
has an adult while population i (
more than 100>), not more than three
hotel licenses mav in any event lie
granted. Onee the .reality has attained a popula'.-o-i of 1000, a fourth
license may oi added; and after
that, an additional license for every
new thousand of population, always
upon two-thirds petition of the interested realderls.

FAKMING.
The writer was not able to visit as
many of the nrighboring farms as
would have been desirable, but from
those he did sec has no hesitation
in saying that atl this large district
requires is (armors; men who will
make use of the natural fertility of
the soil and the practical general experience wliich has been gained by
men who have succeeded In making
good incomes Ior themselves for
some years past in this great park
district. I say great, because a
government inspector only recently
estimated that, within a radius of 21
miles (taking Cranbrook as the center) there were 300,000 acres of till-
atile land; one of the largest areas
within an hour's drive of Cranbrook
being St. Mary's prairie, comprising
•w.lf t»,000 .acres oj land, for the
most part owned by private individuals, in holdings of from 160 acres
to 1700 acres The soil is of a
dark loam, with claj subsoil. It
has an altitude of from 2900 tu
.1000 feet, and is two miles from tin-
North Star branch ol the C.P.R.,
the present terminus ol wliich is
Kimberley. The Und is selling fr-mi
V2"> an acre and, by using irrigation
where possible, and drv farming
methods elsewhere, bountiful crop1*
may be harvested for the proper
working ot   the   soil The writer
would draw special attention to tlie
last sentence, as, when driving, over
this Ian.I. he could not help hut notice the want ol propel breaking .i !
tilling which ihe land was subjected
to by some old-time ranchers    and
others, the land in some places having heen  scratched     with  the    dlsM
ary, when it reached —22, Inn the
thermometer has been known i*. fall
as low as 10 below; but this is very
rare. The seasons vary, ami the
seeding of sprint; wheal depends entirely upon ilit> opening up of the
sprint; reason It usually commences a ho ii I the firs! nf Vpril. Fall
wheat is grown extensively, ami good
crops, averaging about 30 bushels to
the aero, are harvested.
Tho vegetables produced In ibis
district, both in quail t) and quantity, prove a grent asset to the
grower, and the average crop ol
large, clean, sound potatoes from an
acre is 10 tons. Sugar beets have
lso proved a verj successful root,
ud mav in the future Im* one ol the
taple product- in this district. A
large amount ol tame hay ol var-
varietics is crown here and
fetches .i high price on account of
(he big demand Irom the large lum-
r operators >n the vicinity.
\ large acreage ol the land i» made
■ of terraces ami benches, inler-
ersnl with strean ■ and creeks, up-
whlch beav.'i ha* ■ worked exten
,-ely In the past. The laud is
istly of a rich loam and forms
greal hay land, although much ol
t Is now lieing used for mixed farming. The target rivers running
through this dlstric' also give some
valuable hot torn land extending
along the river banks. This land is
to some extent clear, but part of i*
is covered with ,i growth ot poplar
and willow, and is rich hay-producing
land, for tfie most part irrigable
from feeding streams and the river
seepage.     The land,  however, is
mainly comprised ■■( benches,       the
most valuable of which are more   or
less wooded.    This timber growth
now being cleared away and a  good
.subsoil     is    invariably  found.     The
top soil is the product of ages      of j
decayed vegetable matter and   larcc
timber which mixed with the     very
small amount of clay found forms ■-.
truly rich loam of a rlose-graiLcd r.a- !

The wild products of the soil consist of four varieties ol natiee grasses; wild timothy, red top, bunch

forcibly the wonder! ul hold Sir Wilfrid Laurier has gained on the Canadian people. Whilst, doubtless,
very few hard and fast Tories would
ipenly ,-;ive expression to such views
as were expressed hy Mr* Staples,
on the occasion oi Sir Wilfrid's
\isit recently to his constituency,
yet they would he and arc, con
curred i.-i hy a very large number
of the Conservative electors of Canada. Ihey recognize the splendid
services Sir Wilfrid has rendered to
Canada and they realize what a power he lias been in the direction of
allaying both r-tctional and sectarian
strife, nnd as good citizens, holding
their country's welfare of greater
consideration than any party advantage, they unreservedly hope and
trust that Sir Wilfrid may lung be
spared Lo be lhe first minister ot
Canada.
lu this '-on tied iou it must be noted
that Cranbrook is i, be honored by
a brief uslt from Sir Wilfrid Laurier on Mie afternoon of August 30th.
It is to bv regretted Ibat hi*) visit
is to In- but of utie hour's duratiou,
but with proper advance arrangements that brW period will allow of
a fitting .velcome being tendered Canada's prune minister and afford opportunity for vast numbers of resid
nts throughout Kast Kootenay to
get a glimpse of a statesman, wbo
holds the sincere respect of every
Canadian citizen, irrespective of
party leanings. The Liberals ol
Cranbroik will meet on Kriday evening for tlw purpose of arranging details for the reception of Canada's
foremost statesman.     But, here    as
Isewhire, throughout his western
tour, tbe welcome will
be       by       no means      of     a
partisan character. It is ei-
pccied that the city council, board of
trade and other public bodies will
join with the local Liberal associa
tion in providing a welcome, worthy
of the .KC-ision, to the prime minis
ter of Vanada.
TIE K-WTENAV CENTUL
(Continued iron last ■
k*)
At first it took shape in the writer's mind as nothing more ambitious
than a branch road from Klko to
Kort Steele. Hu' several interesting facta coming to bis knowledge
led to an enlargement of Ute scheme
till it had taken Its present shape,
with, a little later, an extension
from Golden down tne Columbia to
the (ireat Head, thence by Canoe
river to the I'pper Fraser, and from
that over tbe country now being
covered by tbe G.T.P. and on to a
t-eriiiinuh ou tne I'acitie. It is very
gratifying, by tbe way, to note that
the O.F.H. in at this moment exploring tbat route and will no doubt
ultimately lay iti rails nut only
round '.* lie vet stoke, but northward
and westward—now only lo share—
at one time it might have been to
control the trade of that vast and
rich territory. Here the side refl.-c
tion may he permitted that our first
transcontinental has never seemed to
have full confidence iu the great resources of our province and could
not tie indticed to blanch out with
feeders aud devrlo}.nieiit roads—unless it bad actually in sight "a sure
thing." ibis iuuj have—no doubt
did—come from thr unfortunate (Jim
Hill called it "political") location of
Us main lint- through the barrenest
readies ot our "sea of mountains."
The building of the "Crow" line
has been one demonstration of Unit
faet; tbe occupation ol tlit Yi-l-
lowhcad fuss by IHT new tranacon-
1 mentals is another and very conclusive one. Hut surely 'tis belter
that a mistake *).< uld be repaired
late than never. So, not to be
building the K.C.K. on its projected
and nature-provided route, would
have been a similar mistake, but, of
course, in a lesser degree.
lhe main fact above referred to
wbicb led to the enlargement of the
original conception nf tbe K. C. It.
was the not even yet generally
known one—tbat a trial shipment of
coal bad heen sent from Fernie to
the admiral of tlie Hritish Pacific
fleet, and tbat the trial had given so
much satisfaction that tbe admiral
wished to make a contract for tbe
supply of all the eoal required by
the fleet; but the rates for a haul
round by way of Mi Lend and Calgary to tht coast were prohibitive,
and the proposed cm tract was abandoned It needed no special nfarcwd-
dom to see tbat a •valla-sons      lis*
from Kernie to Golden would have
enabled the company to have accepted a most desirable and most profitable contract. Hence the larger development of the K.C.K. "connecting
link"—the predestined realization of
a new and better through route to
the coast—better because it will tin-
ally follow the natural and easy river-grade route through the province.
It did not take much persuasion to
interest the leading men of our town
and a few othsts in the scheme; but
it could never bave reached its present stage without the constant
ethical, as well as financial support,
if a faithful few. The writer's first
draft of the nropnsed notice of application for a charter suggested as a
name "The Kort Steele Central Hail-
ways Company," this because natural conditions and the known topography of the district had, he
thought, marked out Fort Steele as
a central collecting and distributing
point for the trade and Industry of
central South Kast Kootenay. This
notice provided fur a railway starting at Fort Steele and running
northward to Golden and southward
to tho International boundary, with
branches tanplng the St. Mary's
country—rich iu ore deposits—Wild
Horse creek, Hull River und all other
then developing fields and finally asking fur as dost- a connection with
Cranbrook as might lie possible.
When submitted to the first business
meeting of its supporters, some
thought this was making too much of
our town, was too selfish an exaltation of its position, und it was moved to change the name. Finally
the writer suggested as an appropriate designation for the main tine
"The Kootenay Central Itailway,"
and it was so decided.
At the opening of the session at
Victoria the writer was sent down
to pilot the measure through the
legislature; and he met witb the
very cordial support of both government and opposition. After our
bill had passed safely through the
railway committee and was thus
certain of receiving the sanction ot
the house, the writer asked members
of the government to grant our company a subsidy, seeing that the proposed line would open up to more
populous settlement one of tlie province's finest agricultural valleys.
Having to leave for Ottawa to perform a similar service there, the care
of the bill was left to the good offices of our member, Mr. K, C,
Smith, who not only saw it safely
through its third reading but secured for us a subsidy of S4,000 per
mile—one half as bonus the other as
a loan. This wus quite satisfactory,
and had the writer, while in the
cast, been informed of the fact, it
might not only have led to his securing further assistuuee at that
time from Ottawa, but to tlie actual
construction of a portion of the road
tbat year, 1B01. For, meeting casually in Toronto an old friend, a
railway contractor, that gentleman
having a construction plant then
idle, offered to build fifty miles of
the road at his own expense, provided that ou completion be could be
assured of receiving the government
bonuses. Here, however, was Uie
obstacle. Mr. Hlair had declined
to give us that session Hie usual government subsidy, and it was not then
known then that the provincial government had done so. Thus, then,
(lal two Kootenay Central I.I-L
sit ion to contract tor twice thnt
was one of the "might have beens"
knocked out by adverse Fate,
(teaching Ottawa only a few hours
before the bill was listed to come
become lhe railway committee ut
tbe commons, tlie writer was introduced to the committee hy Mr tlat-
liher and addressing it on tin- Importance of the road, our bill passed
its first critical stage, und the same
night received in the house its third
reading. In due course it went up
to the senate, ami it received there
the same friendly support and ultimate sanction in committee and in the
Nil chamber itself.
llie work entrusted to him being
thus satisfactorily performed, the
writer was on the point ut leaving
Ottawa for home, when, at one of
several interviews with Mr., now
Senator Jaftray, he urged tlie writer
to return with him to Toronto and
afterwards to go to New York, in
order to arrange with Mr. Hill to
build northward from the boundary,
under our unhampered charter. The
Coal company's charter, it will be
remembered, had been granted to
them at Victoria only on condition
Ibat before exporting eoal or coke
the needs nf our home smelters
should first he fully supplied. The
effectiveness of this restriction being
;a little more than doubtful, as com-
Iing from a provincial legislature, the
charter wa- accepted: b;;t when pub
j He opinion   insisted   ou the Ottawa
government applying   like conditions

room for doubt tbat the operations
of the company might be unduly
hindered, and the bill was withdrawn—Mr. .laffray promising to
take over instead the K.C.It. charter
without subsidy. Hut very unfortunately for us Mr. Hill wns then engaged in his titanic struggle to gain
control of the Northern Pacific nnd
Hurl ing ton roads, and could not
spare time for the interview desired
by Mr. Jaffray. Hence, after several weeks of irritating inaction in
Toronto and receipt- of n telegram
from tbe secretary of the company,
which amounted to a recall, the
writer left for home, entrusting to
Mr. .'affray the negotiation!* for
transfer of our charter. Opposed,
however, hy certain ol his colleagues
on the board, Mr. ..affray's plans
fell through. A few months Inter on
arrangement was made with Mr-
Pollen, which after long and aggravating delays, is now nhout to he
crowned with the success which will
mean so much to Fort Steele und
other towns in the valley and to the
valley itself throughout the whole of
its rich and lovely expanse.
It should he noted thnt during the
Session of 1002, at Victoria, the
Loan Hill of the previous year,
gratiting ours and other companies
railway subsidies, was by the machinations of .Im1 Martin, repealed, and
that without notice to us, so that
though special nets were passed at
the same session renewing the subsidies to others our company was
left without assistance, und has never since been able to secure from
Mcltride a renewal ol our subsidy. At
Ottawa nlso "luck" was against us.
Following the advice of Mr. Hlair we
renewed our application for a subsidy, but owing to the coming coronation ceremonies in London, the
session was a short one nnd no
railway legislation was passed. In
1003 the K.C.It. charter had to he
renewed, and the writer again visited Ottawa for that purpose. This
time, after a very brief interview
with Sir Wilfrid Laurier, he obtained
that statesman's promise of a
subsidy to our enterprise, which was
duly granted later In the session.
From that date the outlook for our
road became brighter, bul not always in constant and iiuilorm degree. Doubters were slowly con-
vims' of our ultimata success      and

Just a closing word as to the future. .Iim Mill lias by no means

West Kootenay, Vale district and

will mean as much In the district to
be so served as the incoming of the
(treat Northern tn Pernio has meant
to that section id our great and
wealthy district. There is thus no
room for anything hut tlie most optimistic outlook lor the future; for
the now rapidly tn be realised prosperity will beneficially n fleet every
town in Ibe district mid many new-
towns certain to be founded nt suitable sites iilung tbe line of tin- new
railway. There are valleys west of
us witb lower altitudes and warmer
summers, but none with a mnrr

enjoyable climate; While tbe soil,
with Irrigation, where necessary, will
produce iu abundance nil soils uf
farm crops and in Ibe choicer sections the bcsl h( fruit, large and
small—strawberries, raspberries ami
all Ihe garden entrants. Mere proximity to tlie common market eastward nud entire control of local

PROP03ED   PROVINCIAL   POULTRY ASSOC! ATtON-OROAN-
IZATION   MEETING AT
VANCOUVER Aid* IM*
A convention of the proposed Provincial Poultry Association will he
held in the convention hall, exhibition grounds, Vancouver, on August
18th, 1010. Convention to be called
to order at 10 a.m
The business ot the convention will
be to consider the organization of
the "Hritish Columbia Poultry Association," and the adoption of a
constitution and bylaws. The offices provided for are: President, vice-
president, secretary-treasurer and a
board ol directors to consist of ten
(10) members; one director to be appointed from each local association.
After the (.'(invention a meeting of
the directors will be ealled for the
purpose of ohcttllg the president,
vice-president, secretary-treasurer,
and an executive committee, outlining the policy of the association and
discussing plans ol work.
Staled in a few words, the chiel
aim and objects of the Hritish Columbia Poultry Association are
"better poultry, ami more of it." Pile
field of work will engage "every
poultry interest." It will seek to
disseminate throughout the province
a thorough knowledge of the latest
und most progressive met hods of
rearing and caring for domestic
fowls Its particular mission will
Ih* to secure ,i more widespread interest in thoroughbred poultry.
The chief agencies to he used In the
furtherance ol this object will be the
poultry show; ami it is expected
that the provlucia1 association will
hold an annual provincial poultry
show.
It is desired thai every poultry
hrmlcr and those Interested in poultry shall consider this association as
having Icon organized for their particular benefit Ii is the intention
to malic the association of tlie largest possible i -cfulucss, and to do
this it desires to get in touch with
every poiiltrymau and farmer in the
province.
While ihe object id this association
is to benefit the poultry industry in
this province -is a whole, and while
these benefits will lie as free to non-
inombcrs as to members, yet as a
poultryman and resilient of this
province you night to aid in this
movement
It is thought advisable [or this association to become an associate
member of the imeriean Poultry Association. The American Poultry
Association lias heen the foremost
factor in the development of the present standards ol domestic fowls,
and a movement that seeks to localize and bring to ; our very door the
power and inilienee of that organization for the betterment of conditions
in your own vicinity should receive
your hearty jo-opt-rat ion. "We believe the American Poultry Association should, and eventually will,
meet the rtccd-j ami become Indispensable to every wide-awake poultry-
man iii America."
An annual report wilt he published
embodying ihe proceedings of the
organization meeting, also articles
on poultry subjects from leading authorities throughout America. There
will he Included in the report a directory ol poultry bleeders of the
province. The directory will contain
only the names of members, with
their addresses, and varieties of fowl
bred
Members only will he entitled to
receive the annual report (?).
Tin- membership will in- composed
of persons interested in ihe breeding
of thoroughbred poultry.
Membership in the association may
be secured hy tin- payment ot an
annual fee of one Uollar ($1.00).
Breeders of (oilltry have three important reasons lot becoming rue tubers:
I. They will help in building up
the business uf breeding, making better tbe business of producing thoroughbred poultry, and increasing tin-
demand for these products.
2 The association doubtless will
lead In the movement to place poultry production on ,i more economical
and better basts, und thus to produro
better ?< unlit ions.
8, The puhlic.it ions of the association alone will much more thai
repay the cost, as from them lie
breeders will learn mnnv new
things, helpful in their own lines of
breeding.

COMING
IRRIGATION CONVENTION,
ing the whole, the- proper elucidation of which constitutes the science
not merely an Interesting hut a
most fascinating one. Hence tlie
value ol this annual convention, when
men who have given much time to
study, investigation and observation
come together eager to compare notes and profit by one another.
For many years conventions were
limited to the medical profession,
engineering aud similar industries
ami excited but little attention outside their own immediate circle. Today, agriculture is asserting itself
as needing the bruins of the best
educated men aIio can inculcate nature's laws and make them available
—intelligently available—to those
who are engaged in the production of
the loud of the human race. With
the increase of population there must
lie increase of production, Indeed, lor
several years supply has hardly kept
pace with demand, proof of that is
seen in the lessened exports ot cereals by the United Stales, and if
agricultural methods had made no
progress during the last ten years
America would now have been importing grain to feed her population
instead ot exporting as hitherto.
Tims the law of supply aud demand
has caused attention to be druwn to
the semi.arid stales and investigation hy the scientist clearly showed
that the great American desert was
really most fertile soil only needing
water iu order to grow abundant
crops ul every description. The
si-arch for water and the surveys ol
rivers hidden iu deep canyons, the
engineering skill and daring feats necessary to make this water available
on plains score of miles distant, read
in many cases ii.ore like Jules
\ erne's fantasies thai matter of
fad. Tlie expense has been enormous and much fore thought was required in order to realize that the
\peniiiture of millions of dollars
would In- justified im the production
ol wheal to he a paying crop at a
dollar a bushel. Hence the deduction that iu order lo feed the human race and domestic animals requiring grain aud grass the skill of
tlie surveyor, the civil and mechanical
engineer has to he exercised many
months or years before a sod can he
turned on the thirsty soil. Consequently, water is ol more value than
land and the buyer ol irrigated land
really paying for water. In
Western Canada much the same conditions exist, hut there is a material
difference inasmuch that there is
hardly a district It, the semi-arid
la-It hut what possesses an abundant
supply of water. In the lakes in
the mountains arc latural reservoirs
fed by glaciers am*1 heavy snowfall
ilm-hargiiig their contents by means
of creeks of varying sizes into the
valleys, creating and keeping sup-
lied nvers ol considerable magnitude. These latter in their normal
condition are usual!• below the
banks, hence water for irrigation is
intercepted In the creeks and
brought over the lower land in close
proximity to the huye river, leaving
much choice land on the higher benches without means ol irrigation, it
is not so much the want of water as
the proper control and disposal of it
that is felt. The first step in control is .storage: usually tin immense
amount of wnter escapes from lake
to river aud then to the sea eight or
ten weeks before the irrigator requires it. This perhaps is the
greatest problem it, British Columbia
today and nowhere is more interest
taken iu great inigation works than
in Alberta and the western states ol
America. This is why every efTort
is being made to obtain the assistance of well know-i experts, aud .1.
S. Dennis, the head and front of the
C.P.R.'s great irrigation and colonization scheme in Alberta, aud Professor Etcheverry, superintendent of
tbe irrigation department of the
state university of t alifornia, will
stand side hy Bide at the forthcoming convention at Kamloops.
In every country where law- and
order is supreme there is always a
legul aspect to every enterprise,
hence the appearance of the most
eminent lawyers, not in fighting
trim, but to cxplah how principles
unit practice must he made subservient to the welfare ot the community
as a whole, and no', conserved to the
personal ends of the individual. Thnt
the provincial government is alive to
the Importance ol this convention is
plain from the anm i.ncement of the
intention of the prime minister and
other members of the government to
be present, ll should tie remembered that the occasion is no ornate
display,     every   step   is   downright
The gieat nnd widespread interest
which Is being taken in the forthcoming irrigation convention is manifest in lhe acceptance of invitations
by public men, experts and others
who realize the importance of obtaining the very best results from the
cultivation of the soil. The results
obtainable from the proper handling
of water arc so evident to everyone
who has studied the subject, that irrigation ns a science has become a
prominent subject in all agricultural
colleges and especially those affiliated
with universities. There are many
different phases to the subject,
scarcely nny two districts having
every point m common, although
there are ceituin   pilnclples under I y-

The basis of representation is a
wide one, commencing with the governor-general ol Canada, members of
the Dominion cablnnl, the senate and

Dominion commissioner of forestry,
wlm will be pivsnit or send representatives; directors and superintendent of Dominion experimental farms;
live representatives of the Canadian
Society ol Engineers: two representatives from each Canadian railway
and one from each agricultural paper
in Canada. The lieutenant-governors of Saskatchewan, Alberta and
British Columbia; members or legislatures, deputy ministers of departments a.id irrigation commissioners;
three ?ach for all irrigation and irrigation-colonization companies; two
each for all agrlculturgl, forestry and
live stock associations; live each for

two each for board-*; of trade; two
each for all towns, villages or rural
municipalities, to he appointed by
tlie mayor, reeve or overseer; two

Thus it is evident thnt provision is
made for a platform common to all
and it behooves eaeii and all to make
every effort to constitute the 1!U0
convention the most progressive and
educational of the scries yet held. No
lower object is advisable, say the
promoters and executive.
TO THRESH    STANDING GRAIN.
it is announced, in unqualified
terms, from Wichita, Kansas, that
Curtis Baldwin, a farmer living near
Nickcrson in that State, has invented a machine for threshing grain in
the fields, and that it works. This
announcement is to be classed as
"important, if true." It the reported invention can accomplish all
that is claimed for it, it is in a
high degree revolutionary and important. There have been two
trials, il is reported, of the machine
made from Curtis Baldwin's plans,
one in a field of wheat, aud one in a
lield of oats, aud it is declared that
the grain was satisfactorily threshed
in both cases. It is further declared that with this machine one man
enn do the work for which twenty-
five men are requited at present,
and that one machine and four horses
will supplant several machines and
many horses under the present
methuils of harvesting.
Tin- following is the descr.ption
given of the work done:
"By threshing the standing grain
in this manner, tbe use of binders,
headers, wheat stackers, pitchers,
stackers and threshing machine crews
is eliminated. The machine, according to Mr. Baldwin, will solve
the problem of the shortage ol harvest hands and the spoiling of grain
in the stack. The mechanism of the
thresher is simple. It resembles a
header and the horses are driven behind the machine. In place of the
header sickle there is a cylinder ten
inches in diameter. The heads of
the grain are driven against this cylinder by the driving blast of an exhaust fan. The grain is then carried hack into a cleaner, where it is
separated from the chaff, which is
carried by an elevatoi to the suckers. The fan and elevator ure run
hy a gasoline engine. The machine
is made ol steel and weighs about
.Vi-Hi pounds. ll takes the same
size swath as a header, hut travels
laster because it does not dept tut oi>

team carry with them when on
Monday evening las' they left for
their old homo town. But with
that photographic copy of the coveted emblem whieli they sought to lift,
went a bag of gold to cheer them
on their way. Nine is the sum total of their efforts in the games last
Saturday and the week previous to
lake the Mint > silu-iware, while 2.1
goals is the proud record of the fast
victorious ItuyaN. The score was

KORWARD   MOVES.
The problem us well as the hope ol
every age and every country is its
children. In fact perhaps one ol
our most pressinj; jirobltms Is the
physical and moral culture ol the
child. i'liat ft very great deal can
he accomplished, and is being done
by beginning early enough and in a
sensible mantlet, is shown hy the lollowing:
New 'ork City actually cut the
death rate ot infants iu two during
the years 1891 to 19011, and the tuberculosis death-rate between 1880 and
1908. !'artful authorities say this
can be done lor the death-rate nl
every nation. There Is a bill belore tht U. S. Congress now to
create n department ol health. Why
not in Canada?
The federal government keens
watch -.[i.l ward against the plagues
ol truit trees, horses, cattle, pigs,
deports the diseased Immigrant, yet
neglects wotully thi plagues ol human life.
luvcnile courts aie becoming an
established institution in Canada.
The lirst court was established In
Winnipeg a year ago. The judge,
Mr. T. M. .laly, has just published
bis lirst annual report. Along with
il is published the report ot Mr. K.
.1. Hilliardc, the superintendent o!
inflected children. During the year
312 children, ranging Irom eight to
sixteen, appeared belore the judge;
lit boys and 118 girls, til the girls,
thirty were charged with immorality, and others were taken out ol
surroundings which would, in the
opinion ol the judge, have led them
int.. criminality. Forty-lour hoys
pleaded guilty to shop breaking, and
thirty-nine to ilntt. Several boys
a|i|ieiired more than one.*, but it was
found necessary lo send not more
than eight to the I.elormntory In
I'ortage la Prairie. The judge says
that many ol tlie offences "indicated
that the delinquent) had their minds
bent in the wrong directum, nnd
that they were caught in time." II,
out ol 17*1 boys ben. In the wrong
direction who were taken In cri.ne,
168 were lelt permanently straight,
the work ol the judge ol the juvenile
court is one ol the most important
influences in the country.
Then follow some statements by
the judge and Mr. Hilliardc which
Cranbrook authorities and parents
had better sonsldcr. Speaking of
causes the judge remarks that truancy ts a fruitful source ol delinquency.
"In nearly every mse o serious delinquency the boy is shown to be n
truant." Surely this Is a warning
to our truant officer—nor do our
truant boys hang around the front
street and hotel corridors.
Parents note:  the    mo*.t    proline
cutise is improper homo surroundings.
"From my experience of the yearhj
work in the juvenile court and Irom
my previous live yenrs' experience
with delinquent children in tlio
police court, I do not hesitate to
say that lo improper homo stir-
roMriinit. in* J v., i nl miinc training, wo can ul tl hut- u', jier cent of
the boys and girls who go wrong."
Fathers note thlr' "The mothers
arc not so much to blame ns the
lathers. The lathers scorn to think
they hnve discharged Iheir full duty
when they pro-'ltlo a house Ior their
families lo live in, with fuel to heal
the same, rind [ooil and clothing lor
their wives an.t children."
Mr. Billiards <|u*,|es In his report
the opinion ot n noted criminologist
that "the -tjt.it*.* of nearly every
criminal is doll CMtiici) before he is
pnst school ago, ami the nip in tlie
bud tlirr-fourtiis of Iho perennial
crap* of criminality would snvo tho

Much attention tlirse days is given
to conservation of our natural resources. Let in: g.vl some attention
to tlie conservation of our hoys and

In exploiting what he considers thr
greatest field fnr doveloplng advert!*
Ing In the future, II. M. (loddard,
head ol ihe Retail Advertisers' Service nf New York City, states that
"what is needed is to put retail advertising on ->s high a plane as that
now occupied by our best national
advertisers.
"In the first place, the retailer
must lie taught to think id advertising not as an expense, hut ns an investment, and he must he shown the
wisdom of malting definite yearly appropriations based about a certain
percentage of nis gross sales. lie
must further **e taught the one fundamental principle ot retail advertising
—that it must be solely of tho nature of store news, told truthfully
and interest in jlv, reflet-ting the motives, alms and principles of the
store.
"When the retailers of this country
havo reached this position, then re-
tall advertising will have n value five
times grenter than al the present
time and will lie tlw greatest force

Nearly thirty archbishops and uisb-
ops of the Roman Catholic church,
well as a large number of abbots *.i.d
other high dignitaries, and about UOU
priests attended the consecration
ceremonies at Westminster cathedral
The great church was crowded, .md
there were enormous throngs outsido
the building. After the process
of relies had been held an impressive
scene took place outside the cathedral
where the archbishop, in full vest
ments, with cope, mitre, and pastoral staff, sprinkled the walls ol the
edifice with holy water. Then he returned to the west door and knocked
on it with liis staff, repealing
Latin the words, "Lift up your
gates, ye princes, and lie ye lifted up
ye everlasting doors, and the King of
Glory shall come in." After lhe
archbishop had entered, bite high al
tar and Hie other altars were consecrated by Dr. Bourne and the oilier
bishops. The consecrator dipped his
thumb into a preparation of water
ashes, salt, and wine, duly blessed,
nnd marked tho altar stone with five
crosses, the choir meanwhile chanting
the antiphon "1 will go unto the Altar of God."
An extraordinaiy case of allied
forgery, in which a number ot well
known Cornish society people figure,
is now being heard at Truro. ?.'!■*.
Olive Willyams, wife of Captain
Hugh Willyams, is charged with forging two promissory notes of £100
each, purporting to he signed hy Mr.
Ilrydges Willyams, of Carnanton,
formerly high sheriff of Cornwall, ami
in conjunction with her husband with
uttering certain promissory notes lot
£2,000 each with intent to defraud.
There were further charges against
Mrs. Willyams of uttering other promissory notes for various sums. It
was stated for the crown that tap-
tain and Mrs. Willyams were pressed
by creditors, and Mrs. Willyams
wrote to her solicitor saying she was
expecting £1,000, nml sent him letters purporting to have been written
by Mr. Ilrydges Willyams to herself,
conveying the idea that she ami Vir,
Willyams had compromised their hm-
and that he would have to p-ty
her such sums as she demanded. Mr.
Ilrydges Willyams denied writing the
letters to the accused, and repudiated
the signatures or the promissory
notes.
The slump in West End house property continues. All the agents have
their books full of mansions in Hi 1
gravia. Mayfair, and South Kensington, which the owners ot lessees are
anxious to let, and which nobody
seems anxious to lake. The situation
is particularly unfavorable with rr
spect to the larger houses those
great cornet" palaces in the (ashl)n-
able squares whieli were once lhe
favorite abodes ol the territorial t."-
hility and the magnates of finance,
Now they go begging, and are to he
hnd at rents wliich would have se.-t.i-
ed absurdly low a few years Ago.
And in some of the streets and lur-
raccs with n slightly lower social
prestige, but still eminently rwiieo-
tahle, there arc whole rows of houses
to be had at any reasonable figure.
Many reasons are assigned for this
fallmg-off. One is the servant iitTt-
culty. The large house means ,i
large staff of servants, a hei y
wages hill, and endless trouble hi
hous-ekeepinc, which the modern
society woman does not like nt all
She has far too many interests iml
occupations to bo absorbed in a |nr-
pctual domesticity during the |,ond<*n
season. It suits bet much better i-i
leave Iter servants, such ns she h.is
nt her country house anil to come up
tor tbe summer to a hot-el where
everything is provided and there
no housekeeping troubles to I* encountered. So there is a perpetual
mullipliention uf the fashionable,
welt-managed hotels -*r blocks of residential flats wliich are always full.
Ami though they nre not cheap, it is

AoCorcHng to the board of trade
turns, issued recently, the general
improvement in trade lifts been maintained. The Mnports fot tlie month

increase of £3,984,814 as compared
with J une i 1000, and the exports to
£31,790,05*1, -'in increase ol E5,08l,-

805,148 over the corresponding half
or 1'wi, while tho exports were
£201,585,733, an Increase nf £27,-
(151,373.
Tlie increase In imports fn June Is
mainly In raw materials, there being
an increase of £1|805,G03 in ml
seeds, nuts, oils, fats and gums,
£658,814 in wood and limber, and
£1,4(15, W# in miscellaneous articles
imported. The manufactured articles imported, taken together, show a
decrease nf tl2.'t,177 as compared
With 1009,
Manufactured exports show an in
crease over June of last year. The
principal increases are £1,507,104 in
cotton; £584,074 in wool; £40,80] in
silk; and £121,458 in other yarns
and textile fabrics; £224,360 in iron

£256,033 in apparel; aud £259,195 iu
chemicals, drugs, dyes and colors.
New ships alone show a decrease in
this ciass.
Coal was exported to the amount
of nearly half a million more than in
.lune, lllfl!).
In the report of the home office
committee on the dangers in the pottery trades, issued a few days ago,
some fresh regulations are suggested.
Poisoning from   lead used in glazing
china is, it  appears,   far  re fatal
to women than men workers, and the
report proposes special restrict ions
on female labor.
One of the curious regulations recommended is the compulsory drinking of half a pint of milk or of cocoa
made with milk hy women am)
young persons on beginning work in
tbe morning. The employer is to
licar the expense. Evidence has
shown that milk is a preventive of
lend poisoning. Another proposal is
that women's skirts should Ih- six
inches clear of the workshop Hour,
and that their hoots Ik? sound.
All workers will, (f the homo secretary adopts the report, have lo undergo medical inspection once a
month. They will wear overalls,
which must be kept clean, and they
must wash carefully nnd attend to
their teeth. Tlie rules suggest one
basin in the factory for every live
persons, and one very large towel a
day for every three persons.
In the lead processes women, it Is
advised, should not work more than
forty-six hours a week, and men
forty-eight, with some exceptions.
Hut women are to Ih- further protested in the more dangerous operations,
and the committee foresee that if
that is not effective it may be necessary to exclude an} woman under
forty-five from such work. Medical
evidence shows that women working
amid lead are three times less fitted
to be mothers than other artisan
women.
After careful consideration the
committee does not prohibit tlie use
of lead glazes.
Rambling Reveries
BV A DREAMER
MOTHER.
There is one form sacred in memory's gallery, one face which lime
can never erase. It is that of our
mother, the dear, gentle compassionate mother who loved us ere
knew whut love vvas, and taught ns
the right ere we knew- the wrong.
She sang us to sleep in the innocence
of childhood, and awoke us with loving kisses on the bright mornings ol
long ago. Her eyes beamed with
joy as she blessed US at life's dawning and spoke a tender farewell, as
Ihe life sun went down. She watched us to school in the summer sun
ami taught us our lessons by the
wintry fireside Frmn childhood's
morn to manhood's hour she was
B-fer at hand to soothe und console
and when at last we must go forth
from the old home and fireside, how
tenderly und affectionately she caressed us and kissed us good-bye—th'-n
wsilted und hoped and prayed that all
would be well. From flrst to lust
her love wns the same—it know no
bounds. With cheers for the right,
tears for the   wrong, she was happy
realm, tho   glittering
Heaven  light up    Die  vie
behold  the sacred  form i
and  loving mother—safe
the peaceful home of the
t  last
loul.
THK SON-IN-LAW,
The typical Canadian mother-in-law
is the ideal mothcr-1 n-law, Shu in
affectionate, kind, and reasonably In
dulgent tu her son-in-law, and ihe is
devoted lo his children, helping in
rear and train them in the wa\ thc<>
should nn. and in sickness being .i'
once, \en often, physician, nurse,
ami ministering angel, There are
few deserving sons-in-law in this
country who have nol an angci.o
mother-in-law, and to the credit ol
most Americans, he it said, that the
mother-in-law is generally the recipient of a filial affection second only
to that rendered to one's own mother. Every man, almost, looks upon
his mother ns heing worthy ol Uie
highest seat iu heaven, and blessed Indeed is he (and there are many such
men) who can in his heart feel that
his mother-in-law is entitled Lo a
seat by her side.
"Worthy and dutiful sons*iti-l.iw
maki- loving and sweet-tempered
niot-hers-in-lnw,'' Th's rule holds
good in nine cases out of ten, and
certainly that makes it a pretty
good one. It would be well lor
every young man, who is about tn
take upon himself the Important and
happy relation of sou-in-law, lo
write lhe above rule on the tablet of
his memory, and redouble the joys
and lighten the sorrows of life by so
conducting himself as to he, at once
ami fnr all time, deserving of love
and confidence of the mother of the
wife of his bosom.
THE OIK1-   BVEHYDODY I.IKES
She is not beautiful--oh, nol Nobody thinks of calling her that. Not
of u dozen can tell whethei hei
eyes are black or blue. If you
should ask (hem to describe her, they
would only say, "She is just right,1'
anil there it would end. She is a
merry-hearted, fun-loving, bewitching
maiden, without a spark of envy or
malice in her whole composition
She enjoys herself, and wants everybody else to do the same. She lias
always a kind word aud a plcasanl
smile for the oldest man or woman;
in fuel, I can think nf nothing she
resembles more than a sunbeam,
which brightens everything it com?s
in contact with. All pay her marked attention, from rich Mr. Wait,
who lives in a mansion uu the hill, to
negro Sam, the sweep. All look .liter her with an admiring eye, and
say to themselves: "She is just ihe
right sort of a g,rl."
OCR CHILDREN.
Treat them kindly.
Admonish them in love.
Karly train them in all that is
right and good.
Do not expect their young hearts
and heads will liml delight in old
folk's staid ways.
Teach them to think that the little
boy in rags has u heart in him in
spite of the rags—and a stomach
too.
Don't preach politeness and propriety to them, ami violate their laws
yourself. In other words, let tin
example you set them I)*1 a good one.
Never quarrel, wait until the children are gone to hed. Then they will
not see you, and perhaps by that
time you may not want to quarrel,
Teach them as they grow older,
that a respectful demeanor to others,
a gentle tone of voice, u kind of disposition, a generous nature, an honest purpose and an industrious mind,
are better than anything else
earth. Teach them those things, and
self reliance and intelligence and cap
ability will come of themselves.
Teach them these things, and your
boys and girls wiil grow up to I
noble men and women.

Hudson's Hay railway,
Referring to the Hudson Hay railway, .Vir Wilfrid said it would soon
be an accomplished fnct.
The government would appoint a
eommission to invtiKiigaic Uie tarifl
question. Sir Wifuiu promised legislation nt an early sitting ol the
house .'f commons to remove grievances of fanners in regard to the
mixing of grain delators. He was

Prince Albert officiated, nnd laid the
corner stone of the new Catholic
church,
Sir Wilfrid Uutier, speaking at
llumbolt, ..•.*•.-'., on Monday night,
made a patrio'.ii ft il dross, in whicn
he appealed to men o! all creeds and
nationalities in Canada to unite in
defence of Canada and the Hriti..h
empire to which he said Canadians
would ever ihr**' allegiance.
"We are uil British subjects," hv
said, "and il :s mt privilege to he
horn under the British ling and the
Hritish constitu'l-in and we bellsvc
that in the HrUUh constitution w,
have the best f 6i\ bar none. ,Vc
believe in our form of government,
that is the iiitnn.*:hial form of jov-
ernmeut presided i ver hy the royal
family of Htaglnnd, We have a kiuii

right to be proud, and of this constitution we My lhat 'it is tho best

As for our hint*, . 1 wl.l say that he
is the true son of  his sire."
Speaking of i"s cosmopolitan audi
Mice, Sir Wilfrid continued: "No
matter where we Come from we ..I
ways are fellow citizens nnd there i>
nothing that we, t.,i> men of Canada
originally are not willing to slum
with yoj. Whiti-vci we have i
yours, and we rule ask in return
that those uli t come into this country and accept tne rights we oltcr,
should also accept the responsibilities of Canadian citizenship."
Sir Wilfrid pointed out that one ol
these obligation.s was tlu* duty nl
defending the empire ol which they
were a part. In conclusion Sir
Wilfrid said:
"We outnta i thut- our navy will
not cause Mie loss cf autonomy, or
the loss by deputation either We
shall show the world a spectacle the)
have never seen before. 1 have i,*
presented to you that the history nl
Canada ts not like the history ol
other colonies. Most colonies at a
certain time severed their connection
with the parent state, but in Canada we claim we have found our in
dependence in Uie maintenance of oui
allegiance. We claim that we arc
going to build lhe Hritish empire
upon the rock of local autonomy,
and that lix-al uitonomy is connected with imperial unity. It i.s upon
this occasion that ' appeal to you,
men of different races nnd of creeds
to stand by these two ideas—the autonomy of Canada and the unity ol
the British empire.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier wus given a
hearty reception at Prince Alberta,
on Tuesday. An escort of Mounted
Police met the train and Sir Wilfrid

lack of political acumen and force.
Other men, less reliahle in their
party fealty, suppt> compensation hy

in neither way. Politically speaking, he was neither loyal nor competent. It Is tttte that the Conservative ptrty has been hard put to It
