The publication ot new bylaws ns
they arc passed by llie city council. In
the ilewspapers would be u move in
the right direction by the new council.
Frequently, law are passed hy tlie
city council, of whicli those affected
can know very little unless they keep
In close touch with the city hall. The
publishing of the bylaws In the newspapers is practiced in nearly every
otlier town In British Columbia ns
well as throughout the other provinces
of the Dominion. The cost for publication does not amount to a great deal
In the course of a year, and while It
affords a little extra (nnd much
needed! revenue for the newspapers,
the advantage of all the people being
able to ascertain the context of each
bylaw far outweighs the small outlay
The new Milk Vendors' Bylaw has
created considerable discussion in the
city among consumers us well as milk
men and then* lis been no real good
reason advanced derogaory o he new
to the new bylaw. Some ot thc milk
men advocate that the new regulations
will result in an advance In the price
of milk. The well regulated dairy,
should not find the new law strict or
liable to force a raise ln the price of
their commodity. In case that a raise
Is necesary, thc consumers generally
will gladly pay the difference under
the assurance that thn milk Is clean,
free from bacteria and containing Its
full quota of fats. Fresh milk has a
faculty of absorbing every microbe
with which It comes In contact and
regulations protecting its purity should
receive the support of all good and
right thinking citizens.
The Pubic Works Department of
British Columbia recently announced
the expenditure for the yeear on road
works as $4,000,000. The well-known
fact Is that thc province did not get
value received for the money. There Is
too much graft and party patronage
In the public works administration for
thc common good. Oreat highways,
tmch as the Cariboo road, are allowed
to remain In a dlsgrceful condition.
There arc many farm settlements
handicapped and unable to market
their produce for want of roads. In
the hands of u business administration
the moneys expended in road works
would add 60$ more, if not twice as
much, work as Is carried out under
the present rotten system.—Vancouver

Men of ull political shades felt sincere sorrow ut thc passing of Sir
George W. Boss, Liberal leader of the
Senate, for the death of this notable
figure marks another broken link in
the chain of distinguished Canadian
brilliant man; a statesman of outstanding force and character, but ubove ;
all a big man In thc generul acceptance of the term. He was big because he knew and studied human
nature. He bad unfaltering faith in
his friends and as deep respect for'
those who might oppose him. Canada
can 111 afford to lose such men us he.
Early training had laid a solid foundation for the brilliant career of Sir
(leorge. In thc old public schools of
Ontario he received the ground work
of his ('duration, passing In turn
through the Toronto Normal School
and Albert College, Belleville. In
1872, he took his first plunge Into the
political maelstrom and for eleven
years represented West Middlesex In
the Dominion House of Commons,
when ho retired to take the portfolio
of education under Premier Mownt in
the Ontario legislature.
When Premier Hardy retired In
1S8U Sir George Ross succeeded him as
leader of the Ontario government and
he successfully piloted the Liberul
party In that province until 1805.
His fighting spirit wus not dimmed
hy the reverses of the poll of that
year and he led the opposition in thc
house with the same keen intelligence,
and vigor us had marked his career
as premier. letter he was appointed
to the Senate, and ln 1912, upon thc
death of Sir Richard Cartwright was
called to the leadership of the Liberal
section of thut house.
All movements for the bettering of
conditions of humanity found a ready
sympathy and vigorous champion In'
Sir (leorge Ross. As chairman of the'
Fielding testimonial committee, as
member of the Quebec inter-provlncial
conference, as vice-president of the
British Association for the Advance-j
ment of Science, and as president of
the Dominion Educational Association
performed services for Canada of the
most lasting nature, At the coronation
of King Edward and Queen Alexandra
he represented Ontario. In 1910 his
services to the DOomlnion were given
royal recognition and he was knighted.
Sir (leorge lloss had a strong Inclination for literary work, which showed
Itself at all limes during his lite. Ho
had a particularly strong fooling for
newspaper men and ln no circles will
his death  he more keenly  felt than
amongst the members of the 'fourth
estate,' especially among those who
had occasion to gain his friendship
und confidence. Many of the staunch
and reliable papers of Ontario were
at times edited and conducted by Sir
George. In later years as past president of the Canadian Authors' Society, his literary talents found expression In several brochures, among
others being Formative Influence In
Canadian History," "Shall Canada Be
Always a Dependency of the Empire?"
The making of the Canadian Constitution," "The Historical Significance
of the Plains of Abraham" and several I
treatises relating to the schools of |
Canada and other countries. He ulso(
collaborated with William Buckingham iu "The Life and Times of the
Hon. Alex. Mackenzie." ln "Getting
Into l'arlament and After," Sir George I
gave, as the title of his book Indicates,
a resume or Ids political life, from the
tlmo he was lirst Inocculated with the
political virus to the memorable day,
lit 1905.
Many years ago Sir George Ross was ,
asked to give a detlnitlou of success |
:is ne viewed It. This is the dellnitlon
he gnve: "Real success Is only obtained by building up character. All
else Is ephemeral. Attention to business will bring a measure of gain; to
hooks an opening to richer avenues |
of ihougut; to art, a l.eener aprecia-
Uon of life; to the world of life, a
knowledge of men; hut real success Is
only sercurtid ivlioti 'ill these contribute to the br'Kitlni'ng of our sympathy with our follow men, and to a
■marer union with our God."
That    was    characteristic    of    Sir

The discovery of the dandruff germ
as the cause ot all hair troubles is
not a recent event. Prof Unna gave
the germ theory to the world In 1887
and two years later Sabouraud by bis
experiments with a rabbit proved beyond u doubt the actual existence ot
this germ.
Ou the heels ot this establishment
of the germ theory came the discovery of Newbro's Herpicide. This was
the tlrst und only remedy prepared In
harmony with thia theory.
There are other preparations for
which the same claims are made as for

merit of Newbro's Herpicide as a scalp

Calgary, Alta.. March 17.—According to a statement Issued by City
Electrician Hrown this afternoon,
carelesncss of two street railway linemen in winding up a five thousand
volt wire around a lightly insulated
hundred and ten volt domestic wire
was responsible for last night's trug-
edlOB In which two men were killed
and two Injured. The heavier wire
destroyed the Insulation, sending lin
live thousand volts over tlio domestic
lighting circuit In ftnnt Calgary.
We. th. undersigned Committee appointed by the Fanners' Institute to
enquire Into the report Issued by Mr.
Wlndslow In his Bulletin No. 61, on
Commercial Fruit Orchards, do And
his report misleading to the detriment
of the Cranbrook district from an or-
chardlst's polnto of view.
Regarding the altitude under which
Fruit Culture may be made a commercial success:- In his report he places
the maximum as 2,000 ft, but we, the
committee, find that both bush fruits
and trees of many varieties can be
grown with eminent success, unequalled, possibly, In any other portion of the Province. Currents, gooseberries, strawberles and the raspberry family are being grown and proving most prolific. We might also say
that fruit growers In the district who
have planted bush fruits on a commercial basis are netting several hundred
dollars per acre from the same. It Is
also our Arm belief that with proper
prunnlng, cultivation and protection
In the fall by cover crops, certain
varieties of apples, such as the Wealthy, Delicious, Yellow Transparent,
Duchess etc., can be most successfully grown and made to yield very remunerative returns.
We recommend the following fruits
as suitable! to the district:-
Strawberries—Magoon and Dunlop.
Currants—Practically all varieties.
Raspberries—Herbert & King; Cuth-
bert, with slight protection In the
(louHcberrlcs—Pearl,   Oregon   Champion, Columbia and Industry.
Apples-Wealthy. Duchess, Delicious,

malion." We have a Poetry Society
i that lays stress on the reading aloud
j of verse. The Committee on English
i appointed by the National Education
{of America, In its rcently published
; report, states that "all expression ln
I speech demands distinct and natural
I articulation, correct pronunciation,
< the exercise of a sense for correct and
• idiomatic speech and the use of an
; agreeable and well-managed voice."
i There can be no denying the tenden-
i cy to uniformity, to a standard, ln ed-
; ucated speech. We notice It In the
I -speech of the actor (unless he be tak-
: ing a dialect part;) wc expect him to
' pronounce words in a certain way,
; and he knows (or ought to know)
; that any peculiarities In his speech
Interfer with our enjoyment. The orator and lecturer sometimes show
greater divergence, but hardly ever
does their speech contain very marked dialect features. Even In Scotland and in the United Statees the experienced public speaker will be
found to adopt, Intentionally or unconsciously, a more or less close approximation to the English standard.
Professor Wyld, tn the December
number of "Modern Language Teaching," has shown very clearly how the
Received Standard,' as he calls It has
developed. He rightly sees an Important factor In the tendency to uniformity tn our great boarding schools
which exercise a levelling Influence
n this and In other respects. The
tendency Is supported by intercourse
among the educated, who rightly desire to avoid the pronunciations and
t-hraseology peculiar to one district
only and hence troublsome to those
outside It. They obey the sound principle thnt speech best fulfills Its function of thought when there Is nothing in the manner of speaking that
Mstracts attention from the thoughts
to be conveyed.
Among speakers ot the 'Received
Standard' the points ot divergence are
now days relatively few.    Some dlf-
I were divided as to the pronunciation
of 'gymnastic' and sitiiiliar words;
: some gave the 'g' Its present value,
1 others pronounced It us In 'get.' In
I accentuation there Is also great variety; for a time, 'blasphemous,' 'cbar-
; acter,' 'contrary' were stressed by
j some on the second syllable, by otb-
j ers on the flrBt. The poet Rogers, ear-
• ly In the 19th century, says: "The
: now fashionable pronunciation of sev-
i eral words Is to me, at least, offen-
' slve. Con'template Is bad enough,
I but bal'cony. makes me sick," The
| prolonged discussions about the accentuation of the word 'decorus'
makes most amusing reading.
Now this growing tendency to uniformity Is a feature of Standard
speech which distinguishes it from
Dialect. In Dialect change takes
place unconsciously; In some more
quickly than others. The cockney
speech ln tbe novels of Dickens Is
very different from that heard now.
Standard speech is, more or less,
consciously and successfully, taught
in our schools; It Is preserved by
strong social influences. Its rate of
change Is consequently slow, and
would be still further reduced, It we
had a rational spelling that adequate-
y represented the sounds, and If our
teachers received a better phonetic
training which would enable them
;o check deviations from the standard
which now pass unnoticed.

On March 17th, a Masquerade Ball

A four piece orchestra supplied splendid music. A tnrge number were in

On Thursday evening thc people of
Moyie witnessed the first performance
of tlie Moyie Amateur Dramatic Society. Tbe Odd Fellow's Hall was

the treatment of 'r' between vowel

the endings -ag, -ate, -ness). There
is some uncertainty at to the accentuation of long words derived trom
Latin  (e.g. laboratory, obligatory).
The other extreme is dialect, which
remains fairly pure In rural areas,
but elsewhere Is subject, more or less,
to the Influence of the 'Received
Standard." This Is especially the
case In large towns, where the different social closss show varying de-
grees of approach to the standard.

by 'xl' In 'anxious,' by 'sel' in 'conscience,' by 'cir in 'machine,' und by
's' tn 'eure' (also by 'ss' In 'passion').
The conditions ore unfavorable on
the side of the language Itself; they
are full as unfavorable on that part of
thn users of the language. Most of us
love our present orthography—love It
for Its uncouthness, Its barbarousness,
Its unfitness to do the very work for'
which orthography Is presumed to ex-
1st at all. We cling with passionate
devotion to Its worst anomalies. We
not meroly shudder at the prospect of
changing a spelling which defies nil
attempts at proper protuinclatotn( e.g.
'victuals,' 'yacht,' 'buoy'), but at the.
suggestion of changing one that In addition disguises completely the derivation (e.g. 'rhyme,' 'scent,' 'sprightly')
about which In other instances we
profess to be profoundly solicitous.
Even the pettiest alterations lu the Interest of mechanical uniformity (e.g.
'diagram,' 'programme,' 'humour,'
'humorous') meet with the sturdiest
resistance. On thia whole subject, indeed, there Is no ignorance so profound and comprehensive as that'
which envelopes tbe minds of many
men of lo'tcrs, If we can judge of their
degree of knowledge by the character
of their utterances. It requires a far

following were especially noticed:

Before showing how the decay of
Dialect may be checked it will be well
to point out that the tendency to a
Standard speech among the educated
Is growing. There was tar less uniformity one hundred years ago. Those
familiar with the controversies that
raged at the end of the 18th century
and the beginning of the 19th (admirably dealt with In Professor Louns-
bury's book on "The Standard of Pronunciation ln English") are aware
thnt many variations have since disappeared. To give a few examples:

Speech. ThiB has been excellently never done anything for pronuncia-
stated by Professor Lounsbury, In the | tion.    We have a  Royal  Society of
concluding pages of his book on "The
Standard of Pronunciation In English"
from which the following passage Is
taken: -
"There can never exist that Infallible guide for whose appearance we
are all longing until the spelling of
every English word carries with It
its own pronunciation. Even then the
variation of accent must continue to
show itself, though It will be reduced
to the lowest possible limits • * * * *
Long and tough is the road that must
bt travelled before any such result
could be reached In a language like
ours which enjoys and rejoices In the
distinction of being the most barbarously spelled of any cultivated tongue j
In Christendom. We are weltering ln
an orthographic chaos In which a
multitude of signs are represented by
the same sound and a multitude of
sounds by thc same sign. Our race
as a race has, In consquence, lost the
Literature, which shows the same unwillingness to face this problem. We
must turn to the Board of Education.
Well may we say so; for it Is a matter of supreme Interest for the teacher. Bad speech in our schools brings
with It many disadvantages. The
Board of Education has Issued directions for the pronunciation of Latin.
(The matter was discussed at the
last Headmasters' Conference, which
gave rise to a correspondent-.• in the
press; and many ot thc letters showed
that phonetics Is still the subject on
which people are ready to rush Into
print without possessing the most elementary knowledge.) The Board of
Education has done much to encourage tho use of phonetics In the teaching of French and German. Surely
the time has come when we may urge
it to take up the pronunciation of

From the beginning ot the present
session the Liberal party in the House
of Commons lias fought for the re- ]
moval of unnecessary tariff burdens
nnd restr1 lU.ns which be MU u few ■,
millionaires, at the expense of the j
masses of producers and consumers.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his followers,
declared, In reply to tbo Speech from j
llie Throne, that thc first duty of the!
Government, In the (ace of present |
conditions, was to take action to allev-!
late the burdens of high prices, and
high taxation, under which tbe people
ut present suffer. The amendment of
the Liberal leader was designed to
give effect to that declaration.
During tlie debate the Opposition
placed itself upon record as favoring
the principle of free food, as a reme-
dy for the steadily Increasing cost of
living, ln this the Liberals had spec-
tul consideration for tho consuming
classes of the Dominion. Tho pro-:
posul mot with no sympathy from the
Government side.
Later tbere was Introduced In the
lltmse by Dr. Neely, of Humboldt, a I
resolution   urging   tbat   wheat   and'
; wheat products be placed on the free I
list, In order that advantage might be
taken of the standing     offer of reel-1
\ procity in these commodities contain- j
ed  in  the new United  States tariff.
This resolution voiced tbe demands of,
the three prairie provinces, and of or-
gantzed   agriculture   throughout   the
, Dominion.   If given effect to, it would'
' widen the farmer's markets, Increase!
' his reurus and lead to increased pro-
I ductlon.   It will be noted In this connection that the farmers declare their:
: willingness to abandon  tho "protcc-1
tion"   which   their   own   industry   at
; present "enjoys."
! This resolution was unanimously
voted down by the Government, Mr.,
Horden contending that the proper
time for bringing up such discussion
wus when the budget speech was delivered.
On Wednesday lost tbe Liberals ln
Parliament advanced another important step in the light. A resolution'
wus introduced by Mr. Knowles, of |
Moose Jaw, urging the abolition of the
duties on agricultural implements. It
Was forcefully argued by Liberal members from every section of the Dominion that the industry had now reached
a stage where It need fear no competition, and that the present protective
duty of 17 Mi per cent was not justi-;
lied, even on the principles of the National Policy. It w«ts contended tliat;
out! of the best means of stimulating
production and of encouraging the'
primary Industry of tbe Dominion was
to allow the farmer to procure the

ulso u lot on Spunvood ridge near
Hparwuod. Lots HUM! to 11085 are
located about u mile unci u quarter
Month from the Elk river and about
two miles east of the Kootenay river.
The tract has been logged. It consists uf a rolling park-like country.
There Js no underbrush. Th vegetation is wild pcavlne, grass und wild
strawberry plants. The soil is sandy
loam of considerable depth, a little
stony In purls.
Kast from Dorr
The lots cast from Dorr to the
south, nearly two miles from the tract
above referred to, are subdivisions of
a logged-off timber licence. Only a
few scattered smull ilr and pine trees
remain. There! Is no underbrush.
Along the central part of the southern
boundary it line tint extends. The remainder or the area is rolling. Four
ridges run north and south across the
group. The soil Is u sandy hiaui free
from stones on the fiat, and sandy
loam wih u few stones on the remainder of tiie area. It is above possible
irrigatlon, being about 300 ft. above
the Kootenay river. It seems quite
probable, though, that water could be
obtained by sinking moderately deep
wells in the vulley.

about 2o0 to 300 ft. above the Kootenay river. The climate Is semi-dry,
and as the elevation is high for irrigation, it is likely thut dry-farmiug
methods would have to be employed
In all but wet years. Thc climatic conditions in general are similiur to those
in the Crnnbrook vicinity. It Is understood that the owners of land situuted
near tho tract contemplate putting on
water, and If this Is done it will likely
servo the hind on this bench.
The lot near Sparwood, U087, is on
the west hide of Klk river, a Hut ut
bottom of the slopes reaching down
to thc river from Sparwood ridge.
This flat Is part of a logged off timber
licence, tlie balance of which, rising
to a broken ridge, has been placed In

Who could stomach "Hamlet by I .nni

would be as easy for an Irishman to
stomach St. Patrick as a "frog-eating
Mounseer. As every good Paddy
knows, St. Patrick's famly name was

Hooligan—and the only wife ho ever
had was tho celebrated Kathleen-nl-

The secret Is dependence on self,
finding out for one's self what is best
to be done, and then doing it one's
self In the hest way available, not the
way one's father did It In the East or
in England, or In Europe, but In tho
way best adapted to present circumstances.
Lust week I no Ion goer said hat the
secret nf the Western Spirit no longer
eluded me.
ln a new land it Is Imposlble for n
while to run in a rut, because there
nre no rut. It takes time and traffic
to make a rut. I am no Pathfinder;
no Leather Stocking, hut to illustrate.
Tho first season I was In the west 1
had to make a trail from the little
camp on the homestead to a certain
village. It was a rolling country and
iightly wooded here and there. There
was no trail. I had a yoke of oxen
and a broad tired wagon. My fellow
adventurer, Mr. Cope, took charge of
the "bulls." 1 had the sun to guide
1 would go ahead, then beckon Cope
to come on with Ills horny steeds.
When ho had come up I forged reflectively ahead again, and the process
was repeated from time to time till we
struck Broadview, leaving behind, or
course, the wagon track on the green
Doing Thing** Never Hone Jlefore.
That track afterwards was never deviated from by an inch. For years It
was a trail, till It was ultimately fenced oft. You soo we laid to make a
trail for ourselves. There was no
trail made by forefathers or fore -
runners of any kind.
All trallmuklng, und the whole life
of a new country is doing things that
have never been done before In Just the
same way; und depending upon one's
self, one's own initiative, and one's
own labor. The whole business is making trails—not merely cart trails, but
moral trails, business trails, educational trails, political trulls, There
are no rus to get Into and to follow
contentedly, unthinkingly, perhaps stupidly, because so many people have
gone along ahead of you.
This necessity brings the faculty of
self-dependence to the front und
keeps It there. It makes u man think

The Westerner ln the War
What was the difference between the
Westerners in the Boer war, and some
of the other fellow. It was that they
could look out for themselves, without direction from superior officers, at
a pinch.
How It Was In Africa.
One of our Western fellows (It was
Beach, of British Columbia, who was
shot through the chest and both legs
at Puardcbcrg) uatd to me:
"The difference between us and the
Imperial troops was this.   We could
think for our selves when we had to.
| Tommy Atkins is a fighter from the
1 word "go," but he Is too much- of a
! machine.   When he had to think for
himself he was apt to be at a loss, for
lie had only been In the habit of doing
what he was told to do."
Iu passing, let me say that Beach—
a wonderful fellow by the way— ex-
| pressed great admiration and liking
for tho British Tommy Atkins. Every
Canadian combatant I have spoken to
was of a like mind. I haven't any I
doubt ln my own mind that the Brit-1
ish Tommy is the best fighting machine In the world.
Hero, again, ln South Africa, we
sen a distinguishing feature of the
Western man was his self-dependancc;
his ability to go ahead "on his own."
