WONDERS OF KOOTENAY
PARTY OF AMERICANS TELL OK
RECENT VISIT,
The following regarding tlm recent
trip of a party of American editors
through tlte famous Columbia valley
is from tho Golden Star:
The trip was made under the
auspices of tbo British Columbia laud
department of the C.P.R., in charge
of ,1. S. Dennis, assistant to the
.second vuv president, and consisted ot
Robert R. .lones, managing editor of
lhe Chicago Inter-Ocean; Samuel E.
Kisser, editorial writer, Chicago Re-
ford-llctald; Wilbur 11. Nesbit, editorial writer Post-Syndicate; Bruce
Barton, associate editor of Home,
Herald and Worlds' Events; Geo. D.
Richards, editor World Today; Elliott Flower, Saturday Evening Post
and Cosmopolitan; Prcscolt Hammond, associate editor Chicago Evening Post; Henry M. Hyde, editor
Technical Magazine.
Arriving at Golden in the private
car "Carsland," attached to train
No. ii, on Wednesday, June 13, the
party found awaiting theiu two powerful Royal Tourist automobiles, in
which they started from town at
14.10 o'clock, reaching Wilmer at
-2(1.10, alter a magnificent run, tho
actual traveling time being f>J hours
lor thc eighty-five miles, Tho evening was spent at Wilmer, the guests
of Mr. R. B. Bruce, of the C.P.R.
land department. Next morning a
run was made ahout twelve miles up
the west side of Windermere lake,
returning via Athalmer to Mrs.
Adams' beautiful residence "Eden-
liowc" on Windermere lake, where
the party was entertained at luncheon. Hero they embarked on the
steamer Isabel, picking uo the two
cars at Athalmer a few minutes later. The steamer made a most pleasant run home to Golden, arriving
soon after midnight Thursday, the
party proceeding east on Friday-, at
noon. With the exception of a
slight shower on Thursday morning,
which, however, was very welcome,
tlte weather was delightful. Mr. H.
G. Parsons, M.P.P., who accompanied
thc visitors on their trip, lost no
opportunity of impressing them with
the beauties and resources of the
district.
"All my life I have envied the men
of tho old testament time who were
senl over into Canaan to spy out
tlie land. You will recall that they
returned travel-stained and weary,
but enthusiastic, and that the reports
they brought ot the marvels of the
land waiting (or the tribes to go up
aud possess them were such as to be
almost beyond belief. Today 1 feci
that my wish to follow in the fool-
steps of thc men of old has been
granted. 1 have looked upon a valley, the like ot which exists nowhere
.else in thc world, a valley of rivers
.and lakes, bordered by wide plateaux
of rich soil, ready for the plow ot the
hutbandman, a valley of woodland
wherein thc echo of the sound of the
axe of thc lumberman shall surely
fail upon thc ears of the iruit grower and farmer, who will find here the
fulfillment of every demand in soil,
climate—and eventually in transportation.'*
The foregoing statement was given
out by Wilbur D. Nesbit, author,
traveler and nead oi tbe United
States Post-Syndicate.
■'The wonder is," eontiiiu-t Air.
jKesbit, "that this region is not even
now one continuous plantation, serving the cast, west and south with
its products, 1 have traversed one
hundred miles of the Columbia river
and have nut situ a mile along the
shores that is not a farm site or a
home site m prospective. But tins
is not all ot the wonder. Back of
this valley, hack of these plateaux
and hills, lio slopes, ridges and
ranges in winch nature has stored
copper, gold, silver, lead and other
minerals such as the early Spanish
rt'Vjiloreis tar to the southward be-
lirv-ed constituted their dimmed of
l-;ido#«do. Above the soil, in the
soil and under the soil are fortunes
lot lbe future possessors of this
valley.
"m one more particular does this
valley miihc ham upon mv seusimli-
Up-y and impress mc as no other spot

world elsewhere there is no such
journey possible as this we have jusl

jieiiueie by automobiles and back by
honl. Eighty miles ol exciting racing among ttie crags, over shoulders
tu mountains, clinging to hillsides,
nnd whirling across valleys ami along
plateaux, always and always with tbo
Mieiii Rockies lowering high ou one
title and the majestic Selkitks standing as .sentinels on the other; huge
peftKfl capped with the eternal snow,
great piles of God's own masonry
a ailing this emerald vale, one unceasing, over astonishing, smiieliuies

gorge, udgc, crest and peak. One
/lips to ilie bottom of bis voratmlnry
and fails to find a word that is not
loo weak fitly to describe either the
scene or liis sensations. There are
famed rides in Europe, ami celebrated scenic spots in all lands, but here
we Irave the solemn beauty of the
Grand Canyon, the wild loveliness of
the Yellowstone and YosemHo. the
stately grace of the Hudson, the terrible stillness of the far north and
the clinging scent of the flowered
tnjuthlunds ot my own country. I
Jish' tried to sec much in mv time,
hut It has remained for the past two
days lo bring to my eyes what I
never dreamed of beholding— what 1
would not have believed existed. Here
is the land of Canaan, flowing with
milk and honey, (or the settler, and
the most marvelous playground In all
the world (or the peoplo of all nations."
Henry N. Hvde, the novelist and
editor ot the Technical World Magazine, came back trom his trip through
the valley filled with enthusiasm. He
gave out thc following sketch *» Ms
impressions: "A slender, Hthc, copper
colored boy stands poised on the fallen trunk of a big pine, his black
eves ablaze with curiosity and wonder. In one hand he carries a forgotten bow and arrow.   Tht 60 borse
power motor slips noiselessly up the
hidden rond and spins out on the
great parklike plateaux where the
small Siwash makes his ancestral
home.
Honk!
"For thc first time the warning
bleat of the white man's latest Bpecu
devil sounds in the aboriginal ears.
Willi terror iu bis eyes tbo smull Indian leaps into the air aud, turning
and twisting like a rabbit, suddenly
becomes invisible.
"Ue ure in the magnificent valle)
of tlio Upper Columbia, eighty miles
tlom a railway station, miming over
roads as hard aud level as tbe boasted highways of France uud thus we
iurprised the original Inhabitant
iu his native haunts.
".Now for a mile the motor purrs
swiftly through what is surely tbe
gtcai terraced park of some stul.
old English country place, then sud-
uciily turns down uu avenue ot tall
lirs and slops before a bungalow,
standing on tbo high shore oi a beau-
iitui lake. Au ivory Chinaman all In
white, opens the huspitablu door aud
we ate welcomed by a charming,
gracious woman, to a beautiful reception room, its waxed lloors covered
with Oriental rugs, Its walls hung
with old prints and raro etching*,
while jusl beyond, through tho open
door a big table sparkling with glass
and silver and gay with yellow, native orchids, completes the picture.
"In the upper valley of the Columhia the first thing one learns is to he
surprised at nothing. It is a land oi
violently picturesque surprises, of
tattling changes of uniqjuc and varied
beauty. On one side it is sentineled
by tbe tall bald peaks of thc Selk-
irks, the new fallen snow shining like
silver against the dull brown and
deep purple of their upper reaches.
From five to fifteen miles away,
marching in unbroken and parallel
procession for a hundred and twenty
miles, stand tho even taller and most
impressive Rockies. At beautiful
Windermere lake, lying in the center
of lhe south end of tho valley, the
Columbia rivtr, a big splendid stream
from its birth starts on its long
journey of two thousand miles to the
Pacific ocean. From its high hanks,
along wliich tlio fish hawk and eagle
build their nests, the valley rises in a
series ot wide and spacious terraces,
one above the other, to meet the
foothills on cither side. Here ,<utl
there where two peaks ol more
splendid height drop down to join
their flanks a deep, narrow gulcti
notches the skyline. Through each
ot these draws rushes a swift mountain torrent to swell the river. Up
ior miles along these creens the
great firs and spruces grow thick,
walling lo be turned into lumber aud
tliere is no high valley loo lonely or
emote lo be already tenanted I,'
some gaunt prospector living alone
or wilh a single partner in his tiny
shack, and every week or two tramping down to Golden or Wilmer with
fresh samples ol ore rich in silver,
cad, copper and even gold. It will
he strange if some day soon the ouiet
Columbia is not invaded bv a wild
rush of those tireless Argonauts,
whose search for the golden fleece is
unending. At any rate the mountains are full of riches which thc
gii/./.led Ben Abies and Sam Brewers,
wlio have searched them out, will live
lo see turned into a yellow Uood ti of
prosperity.
'And now the whole grand valley
is to be opened up to settlers. Water
from the mountain is to he turned
m to tne great level terraces, which
at, present only grow scattered
spruces, bunch grass and sage brush-
Already it has been proved that,
under water, apples grow hero of
peculiar firmness and richness of
flavor. Strawberries and all the
small fruits flourish and potatoes and
i»t het root crops are enortnoush
productive. Abreast of the settlers
will come the tourist aud summer residents. When it is already possible, starting at Golden, to ride ia
a motor at forty miles nn hour
through the most magnificent scenic
panorama on tbe continent--* glorious stretch ot oue hundred and twentv miles, it cannot be long before
meu who love nature will make It
the shrine of their dearest pllgrlm-
age. Everyone who bas onee spun
around the double S. ut the Sinclair
grado to halt at tho high summit ot
tlie load and look out for the. magnificent vision of terrace and park, lake
and river, with ils double frame of
gteen and white mountains fading
backward into lbe faintest blue nnd
deepest purple, will hang the (liclure
on the walls of his memory alongside
the glorious Day of Naples and the
uthei Italian masterpiece the wonderful. Umbrian plain, as it lies stretched out under the high walls of Perugia.
"Already steamers run on the Columbia for the whole length of thc
vallev and a branch line of the C. P.
It. is under const met ion, which will
give it direct connections, both to,
tbe north and south. The day of
its glorious dawning Ib now
here."
Samuel E. Kiser, of the Chicago
Record-Herald said: "if tbe Columbia Itiver valley contained nothing
uut ils scenery it would be one ot
tlie wonders of the Ainoricun continent. I am sure that there can he
nothing more impressive anywhere
than the defile with the snowcapped
Selkirks stretching ou one side and
the mighty Rockies loomfmr nn the
otlier, both ranges being supported by
beautiful foothills and wide benches
which wall in the green valley
where the gentle flowing Columbia
winds its way. After riding eighty
miles fn an automobile up this valley
I can cheerfully recommend it to
anyone who desires new things in
the way of thrills. The road is excellent all the way, there are .no exasperating speed regulations and
there is no need of regretting at tho
start that tho journey must soon be
ended. The valley forms a great
park, more beautiful than an" that
men have fashioned and through it
tho road is cut. Sometimes thc
way lies along tho bank of thc river,
frequently it stretches through Ae-
tlghtfully wooded places and at other
times it zigzags up over tho foothills to tho bases of tho mountains.
There is never an uninteresting moment and the awe Inspiring views are
so plentiful that one begins ere long
lo regret that one does not possess
an extra pair of eyes. There is no
possibility of doing justice to thc
scene, either with pen or camera. It
is if nature had said when sbe formed the valley of the Columbia: '1
have fashioned the plains, and the
bills and the rivers and the seas,
and man has found words whereby he
may describe them to his brothers
now 1 will make use of all tbe resources that are mine and 1 will ar-
lange anil combine tbem in such a
manner that lie who beholds will
forgot that be possesses a language
witli which lie may convey his impressions to his brothers. Here oocl

Ira a fulfilled her purposo.'
George D. Richards, editor oi thu
iVoild today, said: "Columbia, Iht;
gem of the valleys, is wailing lot
tue railroad. It has ion miles of
protected laud between the RooXleS
and Selkirks, and stretching from the
international boundary to Golden,
are unsullied hy sool and ciders; and
.<p neat lhc timber line the mountain
goat and grizzly bear have yet to
near the locomotive's shriek. but
man uud nature expect ihe railroad
and are waiting for it. In our three
«uys' trip through the valley we saw
many things to justify it. Old Ben
Anel says Uiat be has mines up in the
mountain passes that aro yearning
for au easy way to disgorge thou
riches. Pack liorses are picturesquii
nut discouraging fur anything but tho
jurest ores. It is not the mines,
nowever, tliat are making the loudest
call for transportation facilities. It
is tbe sheltered areas of tlio bench
lauds that, without the settler, aro
lying idle. When the railroad brings
people to lay out orchards ami farms
i should say that the climate would
tako care of the rest. Tho scattered
pines, bunch grass, aud other vegetation indicate a soil whose conditions,
once water is available, arc ideal for
fruit growing. People arc needed
and they will come with the railroad.
And when the tourist comes and sees
the magnificent scenery of tho valley be will call it the show place ol
the continent. Its scenery, which is
probably the finest in British Columbia, has the charming foregrounds
that so much of our scenery needs to
place it in thc same plane with
Switzerland. Hunters of big game
do not wait for the railroad, but
discovered the region some years ago,
But its secrets have heen for the
few. And now the critical moment
has arrived and a double attack by
civilization has been started. Fourteen miles of the roadbed of a rail-
bed ot a railway has been laid, starting from Golden. Lucky, arc they
who are the first to realize that
this great fertile valley, one nf the
last to remain comparatively unknown and untraveled, in a few
years is hound to become ono of thc
topulous districts of Western Canada."
Bruce Barton, editor of the World's
Evenls, said: "A remarkable thing
about this province is the way in
which it is served by transportation
lines. That makes a lot of difference
when you come to talk about the
hardships of pioneer lite. I have
lavished a great deal ot sympathy on
pioneers—most of it, as I find iiow,
wholly wasted. The pioneers at
whose homes wc stopped in the Columbia valley had pianos and phonographs, ns well as plows and harrows. We, who had come prepared
to cheer and comfort them, found
tbem inclined to pity us. Thev had
iheir mountains and their rivers and
fertile lands and fresh air. Who wero
we, who had come out ot the smoke
of tlte city, that we sliould feel our
selves mole blessed than they?
"1 do not want tu say a word
about the beauties of the Columhia
valley. Other men have attempted
io ito justice to tbem and 1 have no
desire to add another to the long list
of failures. The valley is a runner,
set ami ready for tlie race. Its days
ot training are finished and the completion of its railroad is to give the
signal for a great leap forward. That
signal will sound before many months
anh it will be a trumpet call of hope
to many thousands who seek success
and are nol terrified at the name
'pioneer.'
Percy Hammond, of tho Chicago
Post, said: "1 would not exchange
my motor trip up the Columbia, Irom
Golden to Wilmer, for all the sightseeing experiences of my life. Tho
scenic marvels, 1 presume, are rivaled somewhere on this ami other con-
iiueiits, but certainly not in anylFEUNIE
place ihat 1 have visited. To speak
ii paraphrase—'one beauty doth
read upon another's heel, so fast
tbey come,' Tho motorist who
neglects thai gauntlet of splendors
lias missed, in my opinion, the won-
iler-lrip of the world, and I speak
nol without acquaintance with some
I the most famous trips in Europe
and  America.     But the aesthetic as
pect of tliis   'happy valley/ as    tho
settlers there felieitiousljt call it.   Is
is least important aspect, when one
rt'llects on its vast utilitarian possibilities. We saw it just alter a
heavy, warm summer rain, and oven
acre sinned rich with fertile soil
elements. Moreover, thc topography
ol the valley makes it admirably
adapted to irrigation's aid—the terraced benches, sloping down, one alter another, as ij nature had foreseen the coming of that potent factor in the new science of agriculture.
Thev recalled to mc tlie irrigated
districts of thc Hood river country
and the Weiiatchc valley in the way
the land lies, although, ot course,
those examples arc as pigmies In
comparison with the seeminglv limitless reaches of thc Columbia.
"I am balllcd by the tact that
here, where there is combined everything to make life ideal—climate,
fertility and a lavish feast of nature's
most wonderous spectacular gifts-
there should he a foot of it not under
cultivation. To thc rich man, who
lias nothing to do but contemplate
the beauties of the mountains (rom
his summer home; to thc husbandman,
who sees nothing In thc valley, but
the wealth it may produce, the district is a grand spot. Whnt a para-;
disc it woifld ho to him who Is able
to combine both these viewpoints."
Wattsburg, Britisli Columbia
Tbe Editor Western Lumberman:
Sir: We are iu receipt of two marked copies of your paper and note
your virulent attacks directed against}
us, because wc dare to advertise tbe
tact tbat we will supply consumers
with our products at points where
the trade is controlled by combinations of mill-owners and line v.irds,
but not where Independent retailors
aro (hung a legitimate husiness.
This you dub "pirating business"
and state that "The Western Lumberman and tho Western Canada Contractor and the Commercial Canada's
greatest trade newspaper are warning every municipality and every
radesman iu the west iu beware ui
he tahe mail uider or mill to consumer fraud. We believe it pays to
lei these sharpers put In a car ui
iheir lowest prices, simply as a
warning, it is generally always a
case of never again."
Whilst wc cannot compliment you
ou tlie elegance of the language you
use, we certainly can on the amount
of gall you exhibit when you dare to
pose as thc protector of the retailer;
the veneer you wear is too thin,
quality too poor; No. 1 of that kind
will not grade No. 5. Yuur true
avocation or mission shines tbrougb
as the champion of lhe combines, who
have crushed out of existence nearly
one-half of the poor retailers in tho
west. It would not pay you—you
dare not come out openly as- their
champion—for reasons so obvious il
is useless to waste space lo explain
them.
Your threat lhat three of Canada's
"greatest trade newspapers will
make a vigorous campaign against
this pirating business fake mail order
mill to consumer fraud, which is dying a hard death," has very little
effect on the. writer, who has had tho
honor of attacking far mightier corporations who aro guilty of avaricious
attempts on the pockets of the public, than are the combines you so
plainly identify yourself with, and he
lias not yet "died the hare death"
you so generously predict.
If you and your kind were the real
friends of the bona fide retailers vou
would tell the whole truth ami not.
part of it, viz.: that tbe independent
retailer who gives the consumer a
square deal is near thc verge of extinction; you know but will not tell
it, that many scores ot poor retailors
have been ruthlessly crushed out of
existence by combinations of mill
owners and line yards;- and where such
institutions have allowed a competitor to stay beside them, the former .
are absolute dictators as to prices. ™*
and the division of the spoil.
You know but dare hot tell it, that
large territories are absolutely at
the mercy of these modern Shylocks,
who have driven out the old retailer
and all semblance of competition in
lbe I limbec line, and that no retailor
can compete with a mill owner if the
latter chooses to run him out, You
kuow that a few milling concerns own
or control over 2t)(t retail yards, that
lliey have grabbed thc best territory
aud dominate it with autocratic
sway. K you don't know, the con-
umcrs and tlieir pockets do.
You ask are we in harmony with
the retailer? Most emphatically
yes, but not with the minions of
"tbe mill owners you choose to call
retailers who are owned body and
soul by their masters.
Thc writer has consistently tor
years combated this selfish policy of
certain mill men, he bus protested
against it in the press, spoken of it
heforc the parliamentary commission
appointed to investigate thc charge
against the so-called great lumber
combine, and he predicts that a more
searching enquiry will be made regarding the latest phase of combination, which is a real and most effective monopoly in certain districts
most inimical to the trade and to
tlie general public, and you are apparently the authorized defender and
apologist for this system of audacious robbery of the public and destruction nf the independent retailer,
and thc only immediate remedv ' is
for mill owners to adopt the course
we have done and supply consumers
where the monopolists control the
situation; but nnt where indenendent
retailers are struggling to do a
legitimate business.

Fernie, II. C, Aug. Hi.—Fernie
was visited by another serious fire
last night, with serious consequences. It broke out in tho Coai
Creek district, starting in the basement of the Miners' club rooms. The
lire began at fi p.m. and soon
spread to adjacent buildings. The
loss is estimated at from $100,001) to
150,000. At eleven o'clock it was
under control ami this morning no
further dn.,,t is feared. In summing up the ruins of some thirteen
cottages, the property of the
(.'rows Nest Coal company, were
destroved, besides the large departmental store of tho Trites-Wood company, the Miners' club and doctor's
olhiT, all of which were burned to
the ground. These are fairly covered by Insurance.
Thc tenants ot thc cottages IobI all
their personal and household goods,
and what makes it doubly hard tor
some is the Tact that three of these
families went through thc Fernio disaster a vear ago, losing all thev then
possessed. The origin of the flro is
supposed to have been from an overturned lamp In the club. Water
pressure was very low and the fire
-gained headway heforc lt could be
properly coped with. Assistance was
sent from Fernie. Thc mines were

thc mineral soil. A fire may
smoulder in the humus, or "duff" for
days, only waiting for a strong
breeze to fan it into a flame that may
burn over miles of timber.
Summer tourists and campers unfortunately have a bod reputation
among owners of timber as being often a cause ot fires. Such fires could
he prevented, almost without exception, by a little extra care on the
part of tlie campers, who have been
the unintentional cause of much torest destruction, and who have just as
real an interest in the preservation of
the forests as the owners ot thc
timber themselves. The rules given
above are the result of long experience and observation on the part ol
many woodsmen and lumbermen as
to 'the origin ot fires from this
cause, and are earnestly recommended to the attention of campers,
sportsmen and others.
FORT WILLIAM STRIKE.
DOCK     LABORERS    HAVE    RETURNED TO WORK.
Fort William, Ont., Aug. Iti.—The
striking dock laborers of thc C.P.H.
returned to work en masse this
morning. A mass meeting of the
strikers and their friends was held
Sunday afternoon and was addressed
by Mayor Pelleticr, who urged the
men to resume their employment
and to submit their grievances to a
bnard of arbitration under tlie
Lemieux Act. General Manager
Bury, of the company, had previously
to the meeting given his consent to
the mayor to take the men back if
they agreed to arbitration.
Fort William, Ont., Aug. 16.—Peace
and quiet reigns supreme in the
foreign quarters today in direct contrast to the riotous scenes and
military discipline of Thursday.
Truckmen are busily engaged in working in and about the freight houses.
Many ot the strikers were disgruntled
yesterday over the arrests ot Saturdav, but they seem content to have
their aliairs adjusted by tho government.

The quaint ceremony of publicly
presenting the "preltv maid" for tho
your wilh a Rift of money was carried out on the first day ot St.
I'oler's fail, at Holsworthy, Devonshire, recently. The custom had its
origin in a bequest in the will ot the
Hov. Thomas Meyrick, a former rec-
Lor of Die parish, which was proved
on .lune lil, 18-11. The will directs
I bat from the interest on money
invested for the purposo -€2 lbs.
shall hi; Riven to tbe single woman resident in the parish under
thirty years of age generally esteemed as the most deserving and
most handsome, and tbe most noted
tm her (piicliicss and attendance at
ohureh. This year's recipient was
Miss Phyllis Richards. The presentation of (lie money took place in
lbe porch of the parish church, in
tin- presence of a large numher ot
spectators, Under the same will
5s, should lie given every year to
thi' spins!er over sixty years of age
who "is noted for the like virtues
anil is not in receipt of parish pay."
Up lo the present a recipient has
not been found for this gitt, spinsters over sixty Iieing scarce at
Holsworthy. i
A thrilling accident followed by an
extraordinary rescue, occurred in the
Moorhousc Guards Colliery, West
Cumberland, recently. Threo men—
.tohn Wood and .lames Francis and
his son, wero engaged in clearing out
an old airshaft, and Wood descended
in a small "kibble" or tub. As he
failed to respond to the signals ol
those above it     was concluded      he
must have been rendered unconscious
by gas. Voung Francis volunteered
to go down to his assistance, making
a perilous descent by tho rope. He
iu turn must havo collapsed, for
there was no sign to those above
that he had been able to help
Wood. The father of the youth, alter giving tlie alarm to others on tbe
surface, prepared to go down the ropo
himself. He dropped out of sight,
and it soon became evident that he
I had shared the faic of tihe two nl-
| ready below. No one else dared venture down. At last, afler a titapsc
of twenty minutes, in despair of doling anything better, it was decided to
I haul up the "kibble," and when it
emerged from the shaft the three
linen came with It, eaeli banging
lover tbe side unconscious, with ono
! foot locked in the tub.
A singular will case in which the
chief question in dispute related io a
secret marriage between a Billingsgate fish salesman and his housekeeper, has just been settled in the
London probate court, Tho will was
lhat of Mr. -fames Godicr, and it
was alleged tbat when he married
Mrs. Belle Taylor he was of unsound mind. ' In September, 11107,
the husband of the housekeeper died,
and directly she heard of this Mrs.
Taylor is said to lmve hurried to
the registry office and arranged to
marry her employer. She went
through tbe marriage ceremony two
days before her first husband' was
buried. Emily Godicr, a daughter
bv the testator's first wife, said that
after his illness in l!)ltr> her lather
was violent, and thought the house
was nn fire. His marriage to thc
housekeeper, she said, was not heard
of liy the family tor a considerable
time afterwards. Sometimes, she
added, her father kissed the servant
in mistake for one ot his daughters.
i The case was ultimately settled    on
the term   that Mrs. (ioilier should bo
provided for.
Thi; Bradford Recorder was caught
tripping the other day, when Thomas
Brown and James Shackleton, were
found guilty of attempting to obtain
live shillings hy a trick. Both prisoners had been many times in jail,
and lbe recorder said they were ol a
class which was dangerous to tho
community lo be at large. Accordingly be sentenced each of them
lo three years' penal servitude. Immediately on bearing the sentence,
Brown exclaimed, "But you cannot
do it. It is only an attempt." He
bad been removed from the dock
whilst protesting, but thc recorder
ordered the man to be put back,
and said: "I believe you are right
about lhat," Brown: "I apologize,
sir. I lost my temper." The recorder: "You have no need to apologize. For lbe moment I omitted' to
remember that the offence was
merely an attempt, and 1 cannot
send vou to penal servitude. I can
only give you a sentence of two
j curs' imprisonment with hard labor,
whieh I do."
The closing incident iu a remarkable case of mistaken identity was
reached at the Loughborough police
court recently. A week before a
laborer named James Kilhurn was
committed for trial on the charge oi
stealing cigarettes, and a girl named
Lees identified him. Another man,
named Arthur Smith, was afterwards
charged with the offence. He had
seen a report of the case in tho free
library, and given himself up to
thc police. Smith gave a detailed
story of how he stole tho cigar-
et t es and what he had done with
tlie box containing them, and his
story was found to be true in every
particular. He did not, he said,
wish     another    man to suffer     for
what he had done. The chairman ot
I the bench said that Smith had acted
'exceedingly well, lie would be sentenced to a day's imprisonment,
which meant lhat lie was free to go
at the rising   of tlio court.
Thc question as to whether thc
husband i.s in law tho owner of thc
clothing worn by his wife was argued in the court of appeals in London recently, and judgment was reserved. A lirm of dressmakers sup-
• plied Mis. de. Friers with dresses to
'the value of about .Cilfi. Her hus-
: band denying liability, they sued the
lady, who admitted liahilit- and milder the judgment, the plaintiffs seized
I a quantity ol clothing belonging to
[Mrs. de Friers. Her husband claimed tbat the articles belonged to
him, as they were purchased out ol
iin allowance made by bim to his
wife. In tbe county court thc jury,
under the direction of the judge
as lo the law relating to paraphernalia, found in favor of the husband,
and the divisional court, on plaintiff's
appeal, also upheld that decision.
The Bishop of Down, opening a
church missionary exhibition at Islington, North London, recently,
said the exhibition was ol value because facts were brought home not
only through the ear. He sometimes thought it unfortunate that
people had two ears, because what
went in at one came out ot tho
oilier; but what went in at "eye-
gale," as Bunyon called it, remained, influencing the heart and thc
conscience and, perhaps, the pockets.
The church ought not to be regarded
as a sort "of club to which persons
paid their subscriptions and received
all the service thc club could give.
They ought themselves to render service' to tbe church, which was not a
glass case for exhibiting saints hut a
machine fur turning them out.
Uue ol thc rehearsals for the Colchester pageant, which took place recently, was marred by a sorious accident. It occurred in the siege
episode, in which members ol the
Kighth Hussars represented Roundheads and Cavaliers. A mimic
charge was pushed home too realistically, and the horse ot Corporal
Watson, who impersonated a Cavalier
leader, was hurled violently to the
ground. Thc corporal Icll on his
head, sustaining a fractured skull and
broken nose. He was attended by
three doctors who were taking part
in the pageant, and his first words
on recovering consciousness were, "I
am sorry to give you all this
trouble, gentlemen."
An extraordinary affair occurred in
Nottingham at an early hour the
other morning, Arthur Searcy, a
lacemaker, running amok and destroying fifty shopwindows before being
taken into custody. Between 2 and
3 o'clock he was seen to rush madly along tho streets, and, armed
with a formidable weapon made of
twisted barbed wire, to stash with
frenzied violence at the windows
which he passed. The man was not
intoxicated, and when arrested after
considerable difficulty he was certified
by two medical gentlemen to be insane. The amount of damage done
is estimated at £1,000.
A lift attendant employed at the
head quarters of the Baden Powell
Bov Scouts in Victoria street, Wcstr
minster, had a remarkable escape
from death a Sunday or two ago.
He was travelling in the lilt from
the top of the building when the
hauling gear snapped. The lift was
crashing to the bottom of the building when, with great presence of
m-ind, he grasped the guide rope firmly and held on to it while tho
lift, which   had no roof, shot   away
from under him, and left him dangling*
in mid air. Slowly and carefully
be lowered himself to the next door,
and escaped Irom thc shaft uninjured.
| The Saracen's Head hotel, Snow-
lull, London, has just been closed.
The proprietors issued a statement
expressing their regret that owing to |
increased taxation they had decided,
to close tho hotel as licensed j
premises. The hotel, which is stat--,
ed to be over .'100 years old, was in-1
troduced by Dickens in "Nicholas
Nickleby" as thc plaee where Mr.
Squeers, of Dothoboys hall, used    to
.interview parents of boys who wero
to he    educated   at his school.    In
'the days of mail coaches, the hotel
was oiio of the recognized stopping
places for tlie coaches,
William Payne, a visitor to Douglas, Isle of Man, hired a van recently for the purpose of bathing Irom
the beach. He dived into the sea
from thc platform of the van,
and, failing to notice that the depth
of water was only two leet, his
head came into violent contact with
lhe hard sand, and he was unable to
rise. Friends observed his feet rising out of the water and went to
his rescue. On being brought ashore
it was found that Mr. Payne was
seriously, bul   not fatally, hurt.
While making a fire for tea in company with other ladies on West Usk
beach, Monmouthshire, Miss Clarice
Duckham. of Newport, was suddenly
enveloped in flames owing to her dress
igniting. Her companions, unable to
extinguish the flames, rushed her
into the sea, and when she was
brought back again to the beach
there was scarcely any portion ol
her clothes remaining.' She is now
slowly recovering from her injuries.

Don't think because the reporter
sees you getting on the train thut
he ought to know who you are and
where you arc going, or il he sees
you greet some Iriends that he knows
who they are and where they are
Irom. Wc aim to get all the news,
but you may be the one we don't
happen to know. We try to become
familiar with names and laces if possible, wc have hung around the town
but some of you weren't there* wc
have loafed on the streets, we've
even risked our reputation on back
streets on a dark night, but you
weren't ail there. And we'll he
hanged if ixe know where to find you
all. So if you arc going or coming
or know anybody cutting up flueer
capers, let us know.
Thc Provincial Government should
do more than it is doing in thc way ol
protecting the country Irom the
damages from forest Arcs. What is
a few dollars spent In advance to
hundreds spent later that do no -good.
What thc country needs is absolute
protection and not sentiment. Thc
lumbermen ol this part ol the country have spent thousands of dollars
to advance the best interest ol thc
province and they are entitled to
every protection that the province
can give.
Strikes always make losses tor all
involved. No man ever made a cent
in one, no matter whether he was the
employee or thc employer.

LASSOED A TIMBER WOLF
Medicine    Hat,     Aug.   u.—While
limber wolves are notoriously rapacious, ihey ate just as notoriously
-shy, and although the ranchers
stale that their depredations this
year have been very costly, arguing
an increase in numbers, still comparatively few of them have been
taken,    (in Thursday    of last week,
however, Kdnmnd McKay and A. L.
Fitch   jumped    upon      a big fellow
working nn Addison K. Walker's
ranch, ite I ween the Twelve and Thirty Mile Sand Hills, some ninety
mill's northeast of the Hat. Thev
had no weapons, but nothing daunted, went afler the quarry with their
ropes. Afler about four miles hard
riding they were able to get within roping distance ot the wolf and
McKay being an expert, made an
effort In ropo the brute, while
Fitch circled round him, holding him
at bay. After several trials, in
whieh the wolf was always able to
go clear through the loop, McKay
got bim by both front feet and
started nver the prairie with him.
Fitch soon had his rope over thc
animal's head and short work wns
then made of him.
Messrs. McKay and Fitch have
every mom lo feel proud of their
feat and ns this particular wolf has
heen a source ot great trouble
amongst, the calves and colts tor
.some time, the ranchers will heartily
approve the service done.
As wolves are very wary, it ls
next to impossible to trap or poison
ihem, and the only wny to get after
them   seems    to ho hy taking    the
ubs in the spring or by roping. The
number of riders who can claim
the credit of roping a wolf in this
istrlct can be counted on tbe finnis of one hand and even then there
would be a linger or two to spare,
thc feat of McKay and Fitch
will he the topic of conversation in
the earn camps tor many a day to
come.

whites niid blacks who lived In lbe parishes of
I irmn and Rapides, lu Louisiana, bud been on
bud terms since lhe close of the civil war. The adoption or (be fifteenth amendment to the federal constitution made mailers worse. There were more negroes
that! White meu in (11*11111 parish, ami the whiles were
determined the blacks sliould not vote. The blacks,
tilled wiib pride because of their recent enfranchisement, were eager lo exercise their new found powers
ot citizenship. Sometimes they walked miles to the
polls, shuttling uloug the dusty roads swinging clubs
tiuit ihey carried to bent off ugly dogs 01* more ugly
1111 ti. On such occasions it was the custom of the
white population to sltmd guard ut the crossroads, and
when the negroes came along tt conversation something like this ensued:—
"Where you going, SainV"
"I'se going to vote, snh."
"You don't want lo vote. Sam. If you try It tho
white men around the polls will kill you. You better
go buck bome."
Sometimes the negroes saw the force of the nrgu-
' ment and turned buck.   Sometimes tbey didn't.   If
tlicy persisted in their determination to vote   there
was it tight.   And if the negroes fought too desperately tbey were killed.
lu lhe spring or 1S78 there hud been an election to
choose local olllcers, Hy dint of miicli club using and
pistol shooting thc whites of Oraut parish bad converted a black resident Iti I majority into an electoral
minority. The negroes accepted the result sullenly,
lu every cabin there were inuriinirings—lirst low, then
loud. And as the chorus of protest swelled in tbe
biitck quarter a note of dellance, equally strong, arose
ll' tbe sections where dwelt the whites.
Mutters li listened to a Climax, The blacks, bursting with aiigr. armed themselves with clubs and an
occasional gun ami captured tlie court house at Colfax, county seat of Grail! parish. Willi shovel and
line they threw up Intrench men ts four feet high and.
to the umn ber of four hundred, waited lo see what
move tin- whites would uext make.
They had not long to wait. From all tbe country
nroimd the whites gathered on Sunday morning and
surrounded the court house At nine o'clock they
called upon lhe negroes to surrender. The blacks answered witli howls of derision and an occasional shot.
For some reason the whites did not return the lire,
and the rest of the forenoon was spent in fruitless
parleying. But ns twelve o'clock enme the cry was
raised in ilie coil l'l house tliat the building was on lire.
The whites luid selected tlie torch as the easiest
means of forcing their enemy's hand. The negroes
In Ihe face of au emergency lost llieir nerve. The
sight of lire had taken nil thc Bght out of them ami
tbey raised a white dag. Under a like emblem tlie
besiegers sent 11 man hi confer with Ihem, and tht1
negroes were lold that if they would lay down their
nrins ttiey would not lie died upon as they marched
out.
Wilh forked thimes darling trom the windows, ths
negroes quickly accepted the terms, As wasps hurried on liy a mutch emerge from Iheir habitation so
did those frightened negroes uli utile and scuffle to get
through tin* narrow door, nud ns they came oul thn
whiles who stood ou guard guided them to a spot
beneath a pecan tree that stood on Hie bank or tha
river.
Suddenly tliere came from the ranks or the whiles
a crash of musketry. As suddenly Ihere came from
the ranks of the blacks a commingled cry or pain,
Negroes by lbe score fell dead In their tracks. Negroes by lbe score jumiied Into the Hcd Itiver. Some
were shot as Ihey swam. Some were drowned. Some
escaped.   One hundred and twenty-eight met death.
Tho "best people" of the two parishes had done tho
work. Everybody was proud of it. A handsome revolver, suitably engraved, was given to a man named
Weston, wm of the postmaster at Montgomery, for
killing more negroes thnt dny thau did any other
mnn. Weston, In fact, wns one of tbe ringleaders of
tho mob, A mnn named Match, who hud recently
been elected Sheriff of Grant parish, wus itnothei

Immediate); the United States government took
steps to seek out and punish tbe criminals. United
States marshals and detective* were despatched from
New Orleans to the little town of Montgomery,
eighteen miles north of Colfax, on the Hed Itiver,
where lived most of the whites who were understood
to be concerned ln the outrage. Not one of these
Investigators ever set toot ln the town. Some of
them, who went up the river from New Orleans on
boats, got ae far ai the wharf and were turned bnck.
The white* who lived along the river towns in those
days had what they called a "secret telegraph," by
meana of which they were enabled to send word of
tbe departure of a suspected detective from New
Orleans, and within two hours from the sailing of
the boat the people of Montgomery, two hundred
mllee away, bad received the warning,   As nearly

WE FOUND ALL THE BEST PEOPLE LINED UP AT THE PIER
learned that our tusk was to go to Montgomery, get
tbe confidence of some of tbe people, learn the names
of the men who did the killing at Colfax, ascertain
the points to which tbey bad tied, und report the
facts to tbe United States District Attorney.
We were delayed lu New Orleans two weeks awalf-
lug tho return of the general In command of tbe federal troops in the city, from whom I wished to get a
letter of Introduction to the captain in charge of forty
soldiers stationed at' Colfax, to he used in case I should
ever need help. And when we did start the floods
that prevailed made travel slow. I determined to go
to Montgomery, not by way of the river, as so many
hnd tried to do. but by way of Galveston, Texas.
Sometimes the iValn run througb a foot of water and
progress was slow. At such times 1 amused myself
liy shooting alligators from the ear window. I don't
know how many I killed on the trip.
Afier leaving Galveston we decided to stop off nt
Shreveport to net the lay of the land, and 1 got off
tlie train at Marshall. Texns, to buy a Shreveport
newspaper, 1 wonted to look up the hoarding bouse
advertisements to see if 1 could get an idea where we
had better stop. One of ilie Orst advertisements I
saw was that of a Mrs. Weston, who announced thnt
she would provide board and a good room for $T> n
week.
"lt would Iw ixld if this Mrs. Weston were tbe wife
or the mother of the man we are after, wouldn't it?"
said I to Dyer. "Let's go to see ber, anyway, when
we get to Shreveport"
We did bo,   We found her to be a woman about
on tbe boat he told us tf the whereabouts of some
of the fugitives who took part In the Colfax massacre, Including those of Weston and of Sheriff
Hatch. And lie also admitted lie had been in hiding
for a year because of what ho did 011 that day.
When the old stern wheel steamboat reached the
wharf at Montgomery we found all tho best people
lined up on the pier to scrutinize the alighting passengers. Among those with whom I afterward became
cequalnted wus a young Frenchman, who peered anxiously into our faces us we came down tho plank.
And, to tell the truth, anybody would have been justified in peering at us. Wo were a hurd looking pair,
Hut nobody molested us and wc wenl straight to the
post office, where I presented my letter of introduction
to the postmaster.
Weston was a typical country Southerner, about
llfty-flve years old. He read his wife's letter and then
said:—
"So yoti-uus want room and hoard? Well, I reckon
I can fix you out, though, as my wife bus told you, I
am living here alone with the servants. But I've got a
front room—the best room lu the house—lhat you can
have If you want lt.   You've got money, haven't you?"
I told him we bad a little, nud he took ns out to show
us the room, which we took.
For the next two or three dnys avc stayed lu the
house a good deal, trying by our actions to confirm the
story we knew bad come down from Shreveport that
we were lu biding because of the murder of a negro.
But during the times that I was out I had made the
acquaintance of the Frenchman I saw on tlje whnrt
heulth, together with an admonition to take carp of
herself, and quite frequently inquired whether she
had heard of any federal ollicers comlug in oilr direction. Wheu I returned to New Orleans I learned
that every oue of my letters had lieen opened—not
carefully unsealed, but lipped along the edge with a
knife.
We bad been lu Montgomery two weeks, during
which time I had learned and reported to the District Attorney the names and addresses of perhaps
twenty participants In the Colfax massacre, when
Postmaster Weston, with whom I had always been on
tbe best of terms, led me aside one morning as we
enme from the dining room.
"I think you nnd your friend bad better get ont of
here," he said. "You will he safer somewhere else.
You bad better take the next boat."
He hadn't said much, but the way he said it left a
taste lu my mouth. I felt sure the old man at least
suspected us. Possibly my letters to my "aunt" did
not look right to him, He did not say another word,
but his advice to "take the next hoat" was so mandatory that there could be no doubt of its advisability. The next boat left nt ton o'clock in tlie morning, and when It left we were on it.
We had not gone fur before we became const-ions
of the fact that we were being watched.   Wherever
were ready to go back North.    We were ou
dressed like respectable citizens and were
up a streel whi 11 two men hailed us, using tin
under which wo were known In Shreveport au
gnmery.
"Hollo, Davis," said one of (he men; "v

lar remark to Dyer, calling .. .   T-  ns."
I shook bands with 1 .,■ a verj cordially, but
told liim I thought he bad a ulc ■ -• ike, [hough as a

"That's funny." he -.1 i. "V >u «k exactly like .

Evans who was witb him."
"My name is Dyer," sn d the n win d lieen addressed ii- "Bvnus," nnd wll few remarks on my
part ahoul the peculiarity of 1 iloual resemb ances
we passed on.
But we never felt sure until we left town we would
not meet somebody who woul \ d il be bluffed. South*
em people in those dnys were n do friendly mood
toward Northerners, and Whei I r d spleasure was
excited tbey occasionally did things that are uot
couutenau&d u the statute hooks. While we were in

Fortunately I bad with me "alxmt $-400, Including
two one hundred dollar bills. I ; uUed oul a one hundred dollar bill and cave it to hiin. He counted out
the change without a word and handed It to me,
Next morning, when we were ready for breakfast I
gave bim another one hundred dollar bill. Again he
ransacked the till for change and banded it over. That
forenoon I went to a bank and exchanged some of my
smaller bills for another one hundred dollar note, and
wIipii we went to luncheon I passed it to him.
"It's not necessary for you to pay in advance any

But I wouldn't bave it. I Insisted tliat my Integrity

In the course of a few days we learned that sbe
had recently moved to Shreveport from Montgomery,
Ala,, where her husband was the Postmaster. We
knew then thai she was the mother of tlie man who
made the negro slaughtering record at Colfax. Another son, perhaps twenty years old, was on the police
force in Shreveport.
Wltlioul making it apparent thnt I was doing so, I
began lo cultivate (be acquaintance of this policeman. After having remained in the house most of
the day, as If I were trying to stay under cover, I

"I used to fire on a train thnt ran Into Montgomery,
Ala., nnd one day I wns given notice that my pay
was to he cut. I wouldn't stand the cut and quit.
They put a nigger In my place, and—well, there
aren't us many niggers ln Alabama as there used

"Oh, I see," he said. "You are keeping out of

I pnld no attention to the remark, and In a little
while we were again talking about ihe white men concerned In the massacre who had fled. He discussed
the matter freely and told me where a dozen of them
were.
That night I did as I bad done on other occnslonB
since I arrived ut Shreveport on my way to Montgomery—wrote n letter to Mrs. Kate 07-enry, of
New Orleans. Mrs. O'Lenry wns supposed to be my
aunt—that's what I told tho postmaster—but lu fact
"she" was District Attorney Beckwlth. Wo had arranged before I started North that 1 should send
letters, thus directed- to a certain locked box in the
post office and that my communications should be
entirely In cipher. Wo knew my letters were likely
to be opened before they started for their destination,
and therefore It became necessary to choose a Cipher
thut would bo least likely to nrouse suspicion. So I
bought two small dictionaries, giving one to Mr,
Beckwlth and keeping the other myself, und when I
wanted to write to him I looked up each word as It
came along and designated It by giving the number
of the page on which It appeared, together with tbe
number of tbe column on the page and the number
FADING AND UNFADING COLORS.
MODERN dyes and pigments will not stand sunlight; they fade easily. On the other hand,
many of the colors used by the ancients are
still as fresh as when first used and appear unalterable. For Instance, the frescoes at. Pompeii aud
Herculaneum aire still bright, and the pigments employed to paint them, when found lu the ruins, may
be used as well today as two thousand years ago.
Pottery, mural paintings and dyed fabrics thou-
sands of years old have been found In Kgypl with
tints scarcely altered.
When we remember that some modern paintings
scarcely fifty years old are barely visible, and that
we always expect to se,- nn "old master" looking
grimy and gloomy, our up to date pride gets something of a setback.
Our deteriorating  pigments   are   in   many   rases

INOCULATION FOR HYDROPHOBIA.
THE number of Inoculations for hydrophobia at

11)07 only 780, The smallest number, <:2*. was treated
iu 1008, This decrease, of course, might mean a
lessening belief lo the efficacy of the treatment or a
decrease in the prevalence of rabies in France. An
examination of the percentage of fatal cases treated
reveals that this also has been decreasing, showing Im-
prbvuineul In efficiency and Indicating tbat tbe treatment has probably been effective In checking the

Rambling Reveries
BY A DREAMER
To bring what pleasure and contentment we can into every lite is
tlm best way to fill our own with
beauty.
To make home happy is an art—
an art a good many people have
either lost or never lound.
There is nothing gained in thc gov
eminent ol children hy threatening
Mint which   is not performed.
The mother ol mothers is she wlio
is the guide, thc Irlend, tho companion and confidant ol her daughters—
the saintly ideal and sweetest living
lesson to her son. She stands to
tbem as the embodiment ot womanly
purity and womanly wisdom.
lf you want to give a little boy
[rom six to ten years old, a start
for the penitentiary, just allow him
tho privilege of running on the streets
until late bedtime. This town has a
gomllv number ot youths who patrol
tbe street^ ut a late hour. It is
there he learns his first crime, lt is
there he gets his first lesson in vulgar, obscene language ami his start
for prison ls made.
"Please state to thc court exactly
what you did between eight nnd nine
o'clock on Monday morning," said
a lawyer to a -delicate looking
little woman on thc witness stand,
"Well," she said, after a moment's
reflection, "I washed my two
children and got them readv for
school, ond sewed a button
Johnny's coat, and mended Nellie's
dress. Then I tidied up my sitting
room and made two beds and watered my house plants and glanced over
the morning paper. Then I dusted
my parlor and set things to right
iu it and washed some lamp chimneys
and combed my baby's hair and
sewed a button on her little shoes
and then I swept out my front entry and brushed and put away tin
children's Sunday clothes and wrote
a note to Johnny's teacher asking
her to excuse him for not Iieing to
school on Kriday. Then I fed my
canary bird and cleaned off the
breakfast table and gave the grocery
man an order and swept off the hack
porch, and then I sat down and rested a few minutes before the clock
struck nine. That's all." "All!"
said tire dazed lawyer. "Excuse mc.
judge; I must get my breath heloro
1 call thc next witness."
We know full well the air of polite
amazement or amiable incredulity
with whieh men receive the statement of a woman's opinion that in
the home partnership the wife, and
not the husband, pulls the laboring
oar. Still it is true that, let a
man's business be ever so engrossing,
ever so wearisome, ever so laborious,
the mere fact that he goes io it in
tlie morning and returns from it at
night sets him above his wife In ease
and comfort. For him the slavery
of routine has its breaks. He gets a
breath of the world outside; he has
change of scene daily; he sees
people and hears them talk; and
liis home is distinctly his refuge and
shelter. Let a wife and mother love
her home nnd her children with the
most absolute unswerving devotion,
and serve them with thc most unselfish fidelity, there are nevertheless
times when she is weary. She
knows better than anyone else thc
I steps and the stitches, the same
!things done over and over, and the:
pettiness of the trials that come to J
the nursery and kitchen. They are
so insigniflccnt that she is ashamed
to talk about them, and we fear she
sometimes forgets to tell her Savior
how hard they press her; and
bearing her cross all alone, its
weight becomes crushing. A sunshiny husband makes a merry, beautiful home, worth working It and for,
If the man is breezy, cheery, considerate, and sympathetic, the wife
sings in her heart over puddings and
mending basket, and counts the

LET US TAKE TIME.
Let us take time (or the good-bye
kiss. Wc shall go to the day's
work with a sweeter spirit (or it.
Let us take time for the evening
prayer. Our sleep will ho mure
restful if wc have claimed thc guardianship o! Ood.
Let us take time to speak sweet,
foolish words to those we love. Uy-
uud-hy, when they can no longer hear
our foolishness will seem more
wise than our   best wisdom.
Let us take time to read our
llilile. Its treasures will last when
we shall have ceased to care (or the
war uf political parties, and rise and
fall of stock, or the petty happenings of   the day.
Let us take time to he pleasant.
The small courtesies, which wc often
omit because tlicy arc small, will
some day look larger to ua than the
wealth which wo covet, or the fame
for whieh wo struggled.
Let us take time to get acquainted wilh our families. Thc wealth
you arc accumulating, burdened father, may Ik a doubtful blessing to the
son who is a stranger lo vou. Vour
beautifully kept house, busy mother,
never be a homo to the
daughter whom you have no time to
caress.
We arc always sorry wben we sec
calico-salaried mau trying to keep
up with a silk dress wife. But wc
arc sorrier when we sec a silk
dress salaried man trying to keep his
wife in   the calico class.
It Is often harder to do right than
it is to refrain from doing wrong.
There is something wrong ahout
a man when it is necessary to make
him good by law.
Some of these days we'll be rich
enough to have an old-fashioned rag
carpet on lhe floor of a room that
is our very own.
Thc worry hug causes a lot of unnecessary trouble.
