Nanaimo Men Sacrificed in the
Interests of Washington
Men.
The Nanaimo Herald of the
"2nd inst. has the following;;   ■
The strike in Nanaimo is not
directly one of sympathy. There
was a time when the men here
were appealed to to leave their
work in sympathy with the
miners at Cumberland, just as
the men at Ladysmith had been
persuaded to do. The circumstances, however, were not the
same in the two places. At Cumberland discrimination by the
operators arainst an employee
was alleged as the reason for the
strike. This particular employee
was a Ladysmith man and according to the charges of the
officers of theUnitedMineWorkers
of America the discrimina.ion began at Ladysmith. Moreover the
mines at Extension and Cumberland were operated by the same
company and there was thus
established a bond of sympathy
between the men of the two
camps. At Nanaimo it was different. There was no specific case
of discrimination to lie charged
against the Western Fuel Company, and the condition hero
were acknowledged to be better
than in either of the other two
towns. Besides the men were
working under an agreement
with the Company, and no matter
what may be alleged now since
the strike has been called, the
general feeling was that the
agreement should be lived up to.
The first result of these different conditions and circumstances
was that all the efforts of Messrs.
Pettigrew and Pattison to bring
out ihe men here were attended
with blank failure. Neither
Pettigrew, Pattison nor any of
the others made any attempt to
hide their chagrin at the ignominious failure of all their best
efforts to embroil the men here
in the trouble they had precipitated at Cumberland and Extension. They told the men of
Nanaimo that they were helping
the employers to defeat the men
who came out on strike. The men
here, they said, were suppling
the markets of the Cumberland
and Extension mines and to that
extent they were "scabbing"
against these men. lt was
pointed out that so far from this
being the case, it was the men of
the United Mine Workers of
America in Washing'on who
were supplying coal for the markets usually supplied by the men
of Cumberland and Extension.
The reply to this argument is
known by every miner on strike
here. The men of Nanaimo were
told by Farrington that if it was
found that the union mines of
Washington were supplying the
markets of the Nanaimo mir.es,
they also would be called out.
It has been proved over and over
again, demonstrated beyond all
possible question, that the Nanaimo market is being suppled liy
Washington coal from union
mines. What has Farrington
done? Has he redeemed his
pledge to the men of Nanaimo
and called out the men of Washington, who, to use the phrase of
his own lieutenants, are "scabbing" against the men here? He
has done nothing of the kind.
What do the miners here, who
obeyed Farrington's orders to
cease work and accepted all his
promises in good faith—what do
these miners think of this act ion?
Is it not plain that they have
been and are still being buncoed
by Farrington and the lesser
local lights of the U.M.W. of A.
The secreta-y of the local here
was ready enough to brand the
men as "scabs" so long as they
refused to come out? What has
he got to say about the Washington miners who are all United
Mine Workers of America? Do
the men of Nanaimo require any
further proof of the fact that
these union mines of Washington
are supplying coal to fill Nanaimo
orders? We published it for
them last week.
It was in the form ol" a despatch from San  Francisco,  the

Answer to Naylor's question: "Who called off the strike?"
The boy stood on the burning deck
Whence all but he had fled;
The (lame that lit the battle's wreck
Shone round him o'er the dead.
The flames roll'd on — he would not go
Without his father's word;
That father, faint in death below,
His voice no longer heard.
There came a burst of thunder sound
The Boy    oh! where was he ?
Ask of the winds that far around
With fragments strewed the sea
authenticity o* which we can
vouch for, and it stated that the
steam ir Tampico was discharging 3,000 tons of White Ash coal
from Washington to the bunkers
of the Western Fuel company,
and that another steamer was
due the following week with a
full cargo of the same coal for
the same company. The plain
English of this is that the western Fuel company is now filling
:he contracts it had entered into
for Nanaimo coal with coal mined in Washington. If a local
milkman dares to sell the timber
off his ranch to Extension mine,
he is blacklisted by the officers
of the u. M. w. of A. Here wo
have a specific case of the western Fuel company getting coal
from a Washington mine to fill its
orders, the men employed at
which are members of the u. M.
of a. what do the men of Nanaimo think of it? what do they
think of their leaders, who, with
all the facts aganst them, charged the men of Nanaimo with
scabbing? The western Fuel
company is actually getting coal
from the union mines to fill its
orders. On the face of it there
is only one possible conclusion to
arrive at, which is that the men
of Nanaimo are being sacrificed
in the interests of the men of
Washington.
UNION RENEWS TURMOIL
Tbe  West   Virginia    Mining
Association under date of June
30th authorize the following statement:
With a membership of less
than five per cent of the 3,500
men employed on Cabin Creek,
Paint Creek and Coal River, the
United Mine Workers of America, an organization not recognized in the recent settlement of
the disturbances in those regions
| has called a strike less than
thirty days after the long period
| of turbulence and turmoil had
been  ended.    Fewer than   five
' hundred men, influenced by fears
of violence, failed to report  for
j work this morning.  The rest are
j at work as usual.
| These miners receive the highest annual earnings paid in any
bituminous field in the United
States, they have been granted
other things for which they asked, they are content and want to
work.   No cause for the present
strike is even alleged, except a
vague accusation of bad faith on
the part of the operators.
That the public may under,
stand the situation it may be
well to recapitulate the recommendations made by the Governor in behalf of the miners and
accepted by the operators.
1. The right to employ check
weighmen, a legal right never
denied by the operators: 2. A
nine hour day: 3. The right to
purchsse> supplies anywhere
without incurring discrimination
a right never denied: 4. A semimonthly pay day.
This is all the operators agreed
to, and they have lived up to the
letter of the agreement. They
never promised to take back all
their former employees, but on
the contrary expressly announced
that about one hundred ringle; d-
ers in recent shootings would
not be reemployed under any circumstances. The refusal of the
operators to reemploy about one
hundred lawless characters has
been misrepresented to the deluded followers of the Union as
an act of bad faith, in spite of
the fact that the operators explicitly announced that these
men would never be permitted to
work for them. The present
strike is an attempt to compel
the operators to reemploy a hand
ful of dangerous characters and
nothing else.
o
TIRED OF AGITATORS.
Under date of July 2nd the
West Virginia Mining Association authorized the following:
Trustworthy information from
the Cabin Creek, Paint Creek
and New River coal fields established conclusively the fact that
the reports of labor troubles
there have been grossly exaggerated. On Cabin Creek not more
than a hundred men out of two
thousand five hundred are idle.
The great majority of miners on
Cabin Creek, Paint Creek and
New River are not talking strike
and have no desire to strike, but
on the contrary are strongly
averse to any further disturbance
They realize that they receive
the highest annual earnings of
any soft coal miners in the United States and they want the
money. Strike talk emanates
from a small minority which has
been encouraged by the recent
visit of the senate committee to
believe that the United States
government will support them in
anything they do. This minority
believes it can lose nothing by
further disturbances, but may
gain something.
From the majority the agitators are receiving scant encouragement. The truth about the
mass meeting last Sunday at Mt.
Hope is this: Although strenuous efforts were made by union
officials to get up a big mass
meeting, the total attendance,
including men, women and child-
sen, was 600, of whom 450 were
farmers and others not connected
with the mines. The remaining
150 were miners who had been
discharged or had voluntarily left
their employment. The affair
degenerated into a drunken orgy
that resulted in one man being
shot, one man being beaten, and
sixteen being clapped in jail.
At the Brooklyn mine on New-
River, the miners installed a
checkweighman early last week.
Within forty-eight hours the forty
men employed there quit work
because they were dissatisfied
with the checkweighman's
weights. They were ignored by
the management, so after five
days of idleness in which they
lost somefifteen hundred dollars
in wages, the men returned to
their work, as they left it, of
their own volition. This trifling
incident was magnified by union
agitators into a great strike "for
the rights of men."
The output of the New River
mines last Monday was 19,000
tons, and on Tuesday 20,000 tons
This is slightly above the average
It is not true that the operators
are failing to live up to their
agreement. The operators never
entered into any agreement to
take back all their former employees, but explicitly reserved
the right to employ whom they
chose and declined to recognize
the union in any way. Union
officials not willing to admit their
failure to obtain recognition,
have misrepresented the facts,
hoping thus to create further
trouble.
Although these summer days
are sometimes mighty warm don't
forget you w 11 probably need a
McClary's Sunshine Furnace just
about next winter.

AT
Nanaimo People Aggrieved at
Extension of Strike to their
District.
The people of Nanaimo feel
especially aggrieved at the action
of the U. M. W. in extending the
strike to this district, where
there was no complaint either as
to wages or conditions. A good
many people here take the view
that there would have been no
calling out of the men here had
not Farrington failed to control
the situation at Cumberland after
seven months'warfare. He cannot claim that the miners in this
district suffered from any injustice under their agreement with
the Western Fuel Company, because if he does it will be a reflect
ion on him for having allowed
such a condition for seven months
and only recognizing it when the
situation at Cumberland demands
some further illustration of his
power. He must either admit
that the miners of Nanaimo had
no agreement, that they were
not the serfs and slaves which he
now aeclares, or he must admit
that for seven months he neglect
ed their interests and took no action to safeguard those interests.
It is sincerely hoped here that
the Minister of Labor will be able
to bring about a condition which
will result in the mines being
opened. Many of the miners, a
great majority, it is claimed, say
that they are willing to go to
work as soon as the mines are
opened if they can be saved from
intimidation. No man likes to
be called a "scab," but it is more
important 'o live, and the bulk
of the miners seem ready to defy
the U. M. W. if they can do so
in an honorable way. They will
certainly have the sympathy of
the communi'y here in any such
action. In fact, it is stated that
if the whistle were to blow next
Monday the majority of the miners would respond to its call,being
tired of the bluff of the U.M. W.
Meanwhile all the Washington
coal mines are working day and
night to supply the needs of the
province of British Columbia,
whose greatest mines are closed
by orders of American agitators,
who have no stake in Canada at
all beyond the bank rolls which
they carry in their pockets,
which are supplied by the miners,
and from which they manage to
extract sufficient to live in luxury
at the best hotels, whilst the
miners and their wives and children are starving on a mere pittance granted them out of the
funds of the U. M. W.
MATRICULATION EXAMINATION.
The following is the list of successful candidates at the recent

Conservatives in B.C. will this
year be held in Nanaimo some
time during the month of November. This means that delegates from all parts of the province
to the number of about 500 will

The silent man stood looking round
for a moment, and then, beckoning to
a boy, the lutter contrived to drag
three- chalra and a stool for their
drinks towards the threo companions,
who hail made their way to a corner
at  the em. of tho room.
May I aet ns host, or will oui friend
be offended? asked Kaston, as '.hat individual, with a little nod at Noll, left
tbem to speak to some ono a', the next
table.
Certainly lie won't, replied Nell,
though ho ls an Independent fellow
enough generally. Dut ot course ho
can see vol are what he would call
a 'toff,' and there ls no etiquette here
but the etiquette that every one must
take something. Ask him what he'd

he drinl.s.

Better have laager, said Nell; you
get that here better probably than
anywhere Ii London. What's yours,
Tom?
Shout, thank ye. I always taka

The words, and something ln the
man's lone, made Easton look at him
again with Interest; but his face remained expressionless. He remembered Nell's remark, however, and
when the waiter returned with their
order, he watched with some curiosity the stout placed before their companion. And then he understood
what Violet's father had meant, for

of drinking that Easton had ever

hand that had been steady enough
before, but now shook like a dead leaf
on a branch, and, covering his eyes
with his other arm, swallowed the liquor at a gulp, and then threw the
glass from him lr.to the corner, where
It fell with a crash on the sawdust
that covered the floor.
Beg pardon, sir, he said, after a
second, apparently recovering himself and turning his set face towards
Easton. I can't help It. But I
think I'll go and see if my pal has
come yet.
What does It mean? asked the Major, as the man threaded his way with
uneven steps among the tables to the
door.
He cut her throat while they were
drinking, said Nell. And then he
seized one of the glasses of brandy
down lo pull himself togethsr. Some
of her blood had spurted into the
glass, though, and ho didn't notice lt

years ago. but he hasn't got over lt.
He was a smart young soldier then,
and very fond of her. Hush, here he

He ain't coming back no more tonight, suid Watt, walking up to the
table. He's been here and gone, but
most likely you'll find him at Mother
Carey's.    You know where that ls?
Yes, said Nell. Of course, why did
not I think of that sooner. That ls
the ven place he would go to. Thank
vou, Watt. I'll do you a turn when

Easton rose with alacrity. Y'es,

CHAPTER XXIV
Who Is this Mother Carey, and j
where does Bhe live? asked the Ma-;
Jor, as tbey stood for a moment and
breathed In the air which, though it>
was hut the air of Soho, seemed singularly fresh and cool after the under-
ground atmosphere cf the Cosiuopo-I
lllte.
Mother Carey Ib a very wicked old
lady, returned Nell, and her chickens
are tougher than anything you can
Imagine, though thi police sometimes
make a meal off them. Sho is—but
It ls dinicult to say what she Is. It'
ls rather 'what Isn't sho that ls bad?'
Among other things, however, she ls
a great receiver of stolen goods, and |
1 lhe biggest competitor the 'Discharged .
! Prisoners' Aid Society' acknowledges, j
| for wherever Uiey work there works |
Ishe, only ln an opposite direction.
They try to reclaim, she to give another push downwards, and as she;
has by far tho l ost money, she wins i
if sho wants to. Coomb s is Just!
the sort she likes, and If he did hap-1
pen to have suggested to her that r
they 6hould help Rlvlngton to get]
away, It ls Just the game she would
like. too.
She sounds like nn amlah'j old lady
and where does she live? asked tbe
Major.
In St. John'B Wood, of all places ln
the world; and she has got an Ideal
house for her business, as It stands
ln a large garden with a front entrance In one street, and a back gate
ln another, and both streets secluded
ones. I think, to pass the time, we
had better go and have something to j
eat, for lt wlll not do to go there till
dusk, and that will be an hour yet.
I know a little restaurant near here,
In Lisle Street, where one can really
dine quite well, and where we shall
be fairly quiet, Bald Easton. Shall
we go tliere?
Nell acquiesced, and the two companions, turning Into the Gourmet,
took a table and ordered dinner.
Neither was ln a mood to eat much
however, they wero too occupied with
their thoughts ond the events of the
past few days, and also. Easton at
least was beginning to feel the effects
of all thoy had gone through. Conversation therefore languished; and it
was a relief at last, when dinner over
and the dusk having arrived, they paid
their bill and turned out Into the
street again.
Shall we walk a little way? asked
Nell, as they emerged Into Wardour
Street.     It will freshen us up.
Certali.ly, If you like, answered
Easton, but you look fit enough.
Nell sighed. I don't feel very fit,
he said. I don't know why lt is, perhaps lt ls that foreign cookery; but
I feel rottenly depressed, and at a
loose end somehow.
The Major looked at him anxiously.
Oh! cheer up, he said; after all, things
are bright enough now. We have
got Violet safe and sound, we shall
catch that rascal Rlvlngton, and hand
bim over to the authorities, so that
she need fear nothing from hln- ln the
future, and—
Yes, we shall do that, I feel sure,
6atd Neil; but—oh, well, 1 suppose, as
I say, it Is the cookery that has affected me; but I certainly feel as if
I would see to-morrow and all the
future to-morrows for a ro.: of pins.
Our best way Is across Oxford Street,
and Into the Marylebone Road.
For a while the two walked silently, and Easton, pondering over his
companion's words, realised how
greatly his cheerlness and Inexhaustible energy had aided them up to the
present and what a difference lt
seemed to make to .'.lings to find Nell
depressed and uncertain.
Suddenly his thoughts were Interrupted by an exclamation at his side,
and turning quickly he saw Neil
pointing in the direction of a taxi-cab
which had Just passed them.
A late glance Just enabled Easton |
to see that the vehicle contained two
men. hut that was all, and he turned
again to Nell f     nn explanation.
Rlvlngton and Coombes! 1 am
sure <f It. cried Violet's father. Curse
11, and thero Isn't another cab in
sight.
For a BBflond they looked helplessly round thorn. They had now reached the Marylebone Road, not very far
from tho gates leading Into Regent's
Park. There was a good deal of
traffic about, but not a vehlclo for
hire anywhere r-*ar, and as they
stared, they could Just see. disappearing behind a motor bus, the object of
their excitement.
Come, said Neil, quickly recover-,
ing his lost energy, and appearing to
throw aside all tho depression at the
prospect ot a chase We can't siand
here; we must run for It, small as.
our chance ls.
But their chance was likely to be
greater than they thought, and Fate
appeared about to step ln and a d

down the road on what they had fancied a hopeless pursuit. Easton suddenly gave an exclamation of delight
and increased his iir.ee. For in that
moment an Occident occurred, sudden
and unexpected as those things always are, and lt pave them renewed
hope and encouiagement.
The taxi-cab, evidently driven at Its
top speed, had passed the 'bus com-
Ing to meet it safely enough, and had
then come up with another one going
in the same direction as itself. This
latter vehicle, conscious of its might,
weight and strength, bad taken lo Itself the centre of e road, probably

south earlier on the corresponding
date of previous years.
Tho Accidental Visitors' List, kept
by the London Zoological Society, is
a record of all birds observed in
Great Britain and on the British
coasts that are not Indigenous to the
British Isles, but havo flown thither
from the Continent. In England, naturalists, ornithologists, lighthouse-
keepers, masters of vessels, coast-
guurdsnicn, farmer;:, and several
country gentlemen gladly report
strange birds which they may observe, and glvo the date and circumstances of the observation. An examination of 'The Accidental Visitors
List reveals many curious happenings.
Birds native to eastern Liberia and
China, North Africa and the arctic
regions have thus heen observed' ln
Great Britain. An extraordinary instance was that of a Canada owl that
alighted in an exhausted condition on
board a vessel off tho coast of Cornwall ln 1830. The bird was so fatigued with Its long flight across the
Atlantic that lt offered not the slightest resistance when handled by the
sailors. A Carolina cuckoo was 6hot
in Wales in I'ebruary, 1831, by Lord
Cawdor. In 1831 an American wood-
duck was killed at Dorking, England.
In 1872 three specimens of Cassin's
snow-goose, a native of Labrador, were
seen on the west coast of Ireland.
The American societies have also a
record of five Individuals of this species shot in Chesapeake Bay ln 1871.
The     London       Zoologicr.1 So
ciety also maintains an accidental visitor's Us', of fishes, as well as of birds,
and the same thing is done at the
Woods Hole. Massachusetts,
These curious wanderers Into another continent are doubtless the
young of some migratory flock. Such
a flock Is led by an old and experienced bird, which knows the route
north and south. Occasional'., birds
that have never before been over the
aerial road may get separated from
the flock. They become bewildered,
and fly about, quite at a loss until
they reach land; where that may be
ls entirely a matter of chance.
Now and then birds that are not
strictly migratory gather in enormous
flocks, and sweep over several hundred miles of coun'.y. The cause that
Impels then to such action ls still a
mystery. Many years air,* Turkey
and Bulgaria were invaded by enormous flocks of tho rose-co'.ored pastor.
These birds proved destructive to
vine-yards and growing crops, and the
peasants had to turn out In force and
kill them by the hundreds. A flock
of these birds would strip a tree of
fruit In less timo than It takes to tell
of It, and there were public rejoicings
ln places after the vast flocks had
passed. So little Is known of the
cause of such migration that the bird
societies everywhere are constantly
on the alert lo note any unusual hap
penlngs of this sort.

MEMORY IMPROVED
Since Leaving Off Tea and Coffee
Many persons suffer from poor memory who never suspjet tea and coffee
have anything to do with lt.
The drug—caffeine--In tea :.nd coffee, acts Injuriously on the nerves and
Kail, causing Imperfect circulation,
too much blood In tho brain i.t one
time, too little ln another pnrt. This
often causes a dullness which makes
a good memory nearly Impossible.
"I am nearly 70 years old and did
not know that coffee was the cause of
tbe stomach and heart trouble I suffi:--
ed from for many . ears, until about
four yens ago," writes a Western

"A kind neighbor Induced me to quit

Nearly ■ Million Passengers Defrauded Government In a Year
The statistical report of the State
Railways ot Russia just published
shows by an amusing array of figures
that for some people, at least it cos
little Indeed to travel by rail In Russia. Among the dismissals and pun-
lshments Inflicted ln tho courso of a
year, 815 guards and 133 subordinates
dismissed, and 6,675 guards and 10,-
473 others fined, are all catalogued as
having helped wayfarers along without
tufflclent regard for the law, which
deorees that journeys hy railway ln
Russia shall be paid for.
But these odd 20,000 punishments
can scarcely be Bald to meet the
needs of the ?ase, ns In the course of
a year nearly a million passen. :ri defrauded tho State Railways management. The exact number ls 904,118.
Altogether as much as $550,000 was
found to be due for faros unpaid.
Nearly half the money wa3 paid at
once, a quarter was paid later of free
wlll, and for the payment of the rest
the authorities were compelled to go
to law.
Naturally most ot the guards and
subordinate employees received slight
commissions from the passengers
they helped. Calculating thnt only
a third, or at the hlgl.est estimate a
half, of the cheap travellers are
caught, the effect on the railway balance-sheet must be very considerable.
It Is amusing to note, however, that
for the tlm.' being the department expresses itself almost satisfied. In
earlier years, lt ls explained, the number of passengerB without tickets who
got off free was much greater.
I could go through hardships with

The body contains phosphorus sufficient to make 483,000 matches. Phosphorus is one of fourteen elements composing the body—divided among
bones, flesh, nervous system and other organs. The perfect health of body
requires a perfect balance of the elements. These elements come uom the
food we eat—the stomach extracts and distributes them.
But 11 stomach ls deranged—the balance of health Is destroyed and the

Dry-Farming Helped Alberts
Alberta's shart ot tha 1911 Immigration Into Canada amounted to BO,.
000 people, according to Charles 8,
Hotchklas, provincial statistician.
This brings ths population of ths province to approximately a half million
people, ths gain In 1912 being 24 per
cent. It Is believed that thla percentage wlll be largely exceeded tn
1918, on account of the work which
ths International Dry-Farming Congress did for ths province last fall.
The seventh annual Congresj was held
ln Lethbrldgj ln October with delegates from practically every American stato and from seventeen foreign
nations. It was the moBt Important
gathering evor held ln Alberta.
Though Its work had nothing to do
with colonization the publicity glvoa
Its meetings was world-wide and ths
result Is that Alberta ls better and
more favorably known today especially ln the United States, than over before. Reports from all sections of
ths United States Indicate a very
heavy Immigration to Alberta this
year, largely exceeding that of 1912,
when tbe states contributed 30,000
people and $40,000,000 ln cash and
effects to ths prosperity of this province. Ths Dry-Farming Congress
will bs held this year tn Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Judging from Alberta's
results, that stats will reap great benefit.

Dresden Man, Who Inherited Trouble
Finds Speedy Relief and Permanent
Cure In Dodd's Kidney Pills.
Dresden, Ont, (Special).—WhetheT
Kidney disease ls hereditary or not
is a matter of opinion. Mr, Samuel Burkett, a well-known resident of
this place, ls convinced that ho Inherited his from his parents. He knows
that Dodd's Kidney Pills cured It.
"I Inherited my Kidney Disease
from my parents," Mr. Burkett states.
"I was treated by a doctor, and tried
various medicines, but it was not till
about eighteen months ago, when I
started to uss Dodd's Kidney Pills
that I got any permanent relief,
"Since then I havo not felt any effect of my old trouble, and I feel that
anybody troubled with kidney disease
wlll be benefited by the use of Dodd's
Kidney Pills If the' follow directions
closely.
"I hope that others may be helped
by Dodd's Kidney Pills. I am well-
known here, and anybody who wishes
moro particulars of my cure can have
them by writing me anil enclosing
stamps for reply."
Dodd's Kidney Pills never fall to
cure any form of kidney disease.
Keeping Ever at It
Some men make poor farmers because they are easily discouraged.
Other men make good farmers because
of the slmpla reason that tbey never
know when they are beaten—always
working, plowing, l.oelng or harvesting In season. These latter kind of
fellows have not time to become discouraged nor sour upon their calling
In life. Industry breeds happiness;
loose application fosters discourage-
mrmt. A man may bo buffeted about
by adverse fates, hla morrow looked
upon to bring nothing good; nnd be
he a farme., a mechanto or a laborer,
he can search the unlvcrsi and he
will find only one rule to help him,
That rule tiys that whatever his trade
or his calling be, he must keep ever
at lt, because perseverance Is the
only hope that any man can have If
ho would giln success.

Soup With a Past
An Englishman went into a restaurant ln a New Engh. id town and was
served for the first course with a delicacy unknown to him. '.o he asked the waiter what lt was and the
waiter replied:
It's bean soup, sir.
Upon this tha Englishman rejoined
In high dudgeon. I don't care what
It's been. I want to know what lt
It.
Tha Crest Did It
Ths Irishman ls nothing if not ingenious. Here Is a good story told
of one, a terrible scamp serving ln
South Africa under Colonel Hamilton-
Browne. On discharge he asked for
a character and was given one by the
colonel so bad as Bhould ordinarily
havo barred hlui from employment
forever.
Seme time later the colonel met
him, a most prosperous man, and
about to embark for the Mother Country.
uut, eald the colonel, how was lt
that people reading such a character-
as I gave you should have been so
taken In?
Bead lt, sir? the scamp replied.
Never a one of them read It, and for
a very good reason, as not one of
them could read a word of English.
It was the Hon and the unicorn fighting for the crown on tho top of the
official paper that did the trick, and
that's what I wanted when I troubled

When Sciatic Pains
Burn Like Fire
Rub In 'Nerviline'
It Kills the Pain, Cures the Suffering, Destroys Every
Trace of Sciatica.
READ THIS INTERESTING LETTER
"I think you ou-ht to makt your
claims stronger about tho marvelous
power of Nerviline on Sciatica, and
Lumbago," This ls how Mrs. A. C.
Corrlgan opens her letter, written
from Victoria, "So n,any people are
suffering, and bo few get proper treatment, that I am anxious that thousands should know of how Nerviline
cured mo. Sciatica Is Just about tho
most awful pain humans aro called upon to bear, nnd ln my case thert was
at times the additional misery of
Lumbago. Nothing attracts attention to particular forms ot suffering
like personal experience, and that Is
why I am so onthuslastlc about Nerviline. I had the luck to use the right
remedy (Kervlllne) almost at the beginning, and cleaned It right out ot
my system. But most people use the
wrong remedy and get Sciatica In
chronlo form. Nerviline eases the
pain at once, and stops the lnflama-
tlon before it becomes chronic, I
say that a liniment that :.r.j power
onough to kill the pain of Sciatica ls
a remedy everybody should know
about, for lt would snuff out ln a wink
little ailments like Neuralgia, Lumbago, Strains, tired muscles and Inflammation from cold."
No homo should ever be without

A Touching Farewell
The Frenchman, a guest at a London hotel, had Just been presented
with his bill. Though he paid lt
without formal protest, he was most
Indignant at Its amount.
I vlsh to see ze proprletalro, he exclaimed with a flourish, to the clerk.
In a moment tho proprietor entered.     The Frenchman was all smiles.
Ahl ho exclaimed. I must embrace
you!
But why should you wish to embrace
me, sir? asked the astonished hotel-
keeper.     I do not understand.
Look at zees bill I
Yes; your receipted bill. What of
lt?
What of lt? Simply zees, salre;
lt means zat I shall nevalre, no ne-
valre, see you again.
Very Trying
Mr. William Muggins was angry,
and he certainly appeared to have
some Justification for wrath.
Liza, he expostulated, don't I always tell you I won't 'ave the kids
bringing In the coals from the shed
ln my best 'at?     It ain't nice, Liza,
Just listen to reason, lt you please,
Bill, said his wife, coldly. You have
spoilt the shape ot that hat with your
funny head already, and as you'ro
working coal all day at the wharf,
what can a little extra coal dust ln
your hnt matter?
You don't see the point, Liza, explained Williams, with dignity. I
only wear that hat in tho hevcnlns,
and If, while I'm hout, I takes lt horf
my 'ed lt leaves a black band reaund
my forehead. Wot ls the consequence? Why I gits accused of
washln' my face wld my 'at on.
Ready-Made  Home
Her Suitor—I wish to marry your
daughter, sir.
Her Dad (sternly)—My   daughter,
sir, will continue under her parental
roof.
Her Suitor—Well, Blr, the parental
roof looks good to me.
A woman woke her husband during

Beg pardon, sir, said the doorman
at the Bxoluslve Club.   Haven't you
made a mistake?
I reckon not, replied Farmer
George. Tho sign on tho door says
'No Admission,' and If there's no admission it's free, ain't lt?
Two Bohomlans nt a cafe—What
happened to you, old chap? Did you

Oh, I've left Journalism and gone

Sweet Home Triumph of Youth
When little Doris climbed up to her
father's knee It was quite obvious that
some deep problem was troubling her
mind. Presently sho unburdened
herself of the momentous question.
Papa, she asked, was lt a very wlBe
person who said: The good die young?
YeB, replied her father. I suppose
he must havo beer, very, very wlso.
Well, said the child, after meditating for Borne time on the Import of
his answer. I'm not really so much
surprised shout you, but mummy—no,
I don't see how mummy managed lo
get growed up!
Taken In
Yes, said the quiet little man ln tho
corner, na the conversation turned to
sport. I have a good deal of experience ln running, cycling, etc.
Ever had any luck? asked an nth-
letlc-looklng young man.
Ob, yes, once took the gold cup for
ten miles running championship.
Anything else? sneered the other.
At one meeting I took six cups; l;i
fact, all the prizes that wero offered.
Now look here, mister, said the athlete, you can't expect me to believe
that.
It'B a solemn fact, nevertheless, answered the little man. You see, I am
a photographer.
Frosts In all Seasons
The common Man—Why ls It you
actors wear heavily-furred coats In all
Bcnsons?
Orc-at Actor—The fact-Is, my dear
fellow, my profession ls the only one
liable to frosts In all seasons!
A late Judge whoso personal appearance was as unprepossessing as hla
legal knowledge was profound, Interrupted a female witness.
Humbugged you, my good woman!
E&.M he.    What do you mean by that?
Well, my lord, said tho witness, I
can't explain it exactly, bur If a girl
oalled your lordship a handsome man
she would be humbugging you.
Above Suspicion
Some sou-.d, common-sense remarks
were made by Hon. O. P. Graham
and Hon Robert Rogers ln the House
of Commons the other day when the
question of Incriaslng the salary of
the Chairman of the Dominion Railway Board was under consideration.
It ls not often that the leaders of the
opposing parties can agree on anything, but thp e.x-Mlni6ter of Railways and the present Minister of Public Works found themselves in hearty
accord on the necessity 'of regarding
the Railway Boa.'d as something entirely reniovtd from party politics.
"The Railway Board ls as high
above party as ls a Judge on the
bench, and should be so considered,"
eald Mr. Graham, and The Herald
hopes that as wide publicity as possible will be given to his words. Mr.
Rogers echoed them, and of his sincerity there can be no question.
The Chairman of the Dominion Railway Board occupies a position second
only ln importance perhaps to that of
the Premier ot Canada. The right
man In this very Important position
can do much for Canada; what the
wrong man could do lt ls unpleasant
to contemplate.
The Board was the crctlon of the
Laurier administration; the man they
selected as its head was the best possible man for the position. Mr.
Rogers generously admitted all this,
and we believe that he spoko only the
truth when he said that the selection
of a successcr to the late Hon.
James P. Mabee was not made without most serious thought bv tne government.
Newspapers, Irrespective of party,
will do well to pay more than passing
attention to what Mr. Graham said.
They have, It would appear, been the
chief offenders ln attributing political
motives to the action of the Board ln
different cases. The Herald, for one
does not believe that any action
whatever of the late James Pitt Mabee was influenced In the very slightest degree by political cons! leratlons,
It believes also tha'. In H. L, Drayton, the Government was fortunate
enough to secure .' man who measures up to Mr. Ma'uee's standard.
We do not believe that politics have
the slightest weight with the present
Dominion Railway Board. Certainly
the railways do not -.ant any such
thing. Those who attribute political
motives to whatever declBlons the
Board sees fit to make, are paying a
poor compliment, not only to the
Board which should be, as Mr. Graham declared, as much above suspicion as a Judge upon the bench, but
to the Government under which the
Board does its very useful work.—
Montreal Herald, 17-5-13.
Choosing
Have you deckled what office you
want, asked ono statesman.
Yes, replied tho constituent. I do
not care what the duties .ro, but I
want ono ot those offices with a Per-j
slan rug on the floor and pl.nty of
easy chairs scattered around.
Get In Early
John Milton received $25 for Paradise Lost, said the scornful author.
Well, replied the practical publisher, he was lucky ln getting the work
out when the market for that Bort of
thing .'■' s comparatively good.
A tramp called at a farm. When
tho farmer offered him a good Job and
three meals a day the tramp asked
what kind of work It would be. The
farmer replied: Digging potatoes. Tho
tramp therefore stretched himself and
yawned. Don't you think, he suggested, you'd better got the man who
planted them? He knows Just where
they are.
A Hint to our Town Cousins
How many of the well-groomed,
well-fed people ln the cities ever stop
to think what would happen to them
If tho farmer should quit, or to ask
whence comee their dally brei-d? The
only occasions on which they think
of the farmer at all ls when they scar
their grocer's bill and conjure up vli
ions of a rapacious robber out on the
land, who in fiendish glee is boosting
the cost of living. They do not know
or If they do very often they do not
care, that the man on the farm, at
the mercy of flood, drought, epidemic,
and all the Insect plagues of Egypt,
ls patiently and Industriously doing
his duty, and that very little of the
ultimate price of his product finds .cs
way Into his purse. It would be well
If our cousins ln town should see the
man with the hoe from a new and
more correct angle.

He killed the man who stood by me,
For such they made his law;

Who neither know nor saw,

And lay embedded there.

In 1907 the first colonial conference was held. It was at
tbis conference that Australia announced its intention of starting a local navy, but it must be remembered that since 1887
Australia bad been making cash contributions to the Imperial
Navy, and for the five years previous a million a year. New
Zealand continued its contribution, raising it to half a million
a year. Cape Colony and Natal also continued their contributions. Sir irilfred Laurier again refused to commit Canada
to am/ policy of naval defence and threw a wet cloth over all
proposals for co-operation between the motherland and the
colonies.
In 1 DO!) the New Zealand government offered to bear the
cost of construction of a battleship of the latest typp. In 1909
was held the Imperial Defence Conference. It was at this
conference that Australia agreed to establish a fleet unit. This
is the agreement witb Australia the Liberal press is now stating Canada has violated. It was the Laurier government
which violated the agreement, /fustralia went vigorously
ahead with its share of the program, and all Canada did was
to start its joke llniubow and Niobe navy. On November 12
1912 lhe Malay States offered the contribution of a battleship
and since then the New Zealand and Auitraliall battleships
have been completed,
To nun up:
Australia gave 126,000 pounds annually from (887 to
1902 and from 1902 lo 1907gave 200,000 pounds ayear when
o local fleet was established ou a big basis, including a battleship,
^Vew Zealand gave 20,000 pounds from 1887 to 1902 and
ftom 190*2 to 1907 40,000 pounds a year when tbe contribution
wns railed to 100,000 pounds and in addition has given a
battleship.
Natal from 1897 to 1902 gave 12,000 pounds annually
and since then ;i5,000 pounds a year.
Cape Colony from 1897 to 19o2 gave 30,000 pounds an.
nuahy and since then 40,000 pounds a year.
Newfoundland has given 11,000 pounds a year towards the
maintenance of a branch of the Royal Naval   Reserve since
190*2.
Mala// States have given a battleship.
Canada has given nothing and lags last of the Over-Seas
Dominions.

Preserving  Fence Posts From Decay
Wood-rot, in all Its forms. Is due to
the action of fungi working under suitable air and moisture conditions. In
fence posts these conditions are most
favorable ar or near the surface of the
ground and hence It ia there that decay first starts. Some wood3, like
the cedar and tamarack, are more
resistant tr> fungus attack and may
last, as fence posts, from eight to
ten years. Unfortunately however,
the supply of these woods has grown
very scarce and the farmer ls faced
with the alternative ot Importing durable material at a high price or of applying preservatives to tha common
nondurable woods which grow ln his
own wood lot. As the latter alternative Is not only cheaper, but also
much more effective. It ls of considerable econornlo Interest to the farmer
to know how these wood-preservatives are applied.
Creosote, a dead oil of opal tar, ls
perhaps tho best preservative for this
purpose, as lt does not dissolve out of
the treated wood, when ln contact
with mnlst earth It costs from
eight to fifteen cents per gallon,
Theto are two methods of applying
tho creosote but before either method
oan be applied It ls necessary to have
the posts well seasoned If the best results aro desired. This seasoning ls
best accomplished by peeling the bark
from the posts and then stacking them
ln loose piles ln the open air for several months, so the amount of water
ln tho wood may be reduced to the
smallest per cent,  possible.
Tho Brush Method consists ln applying the creosote like a coat of
paint to the lower portion of the post,
up to a point, six Inches above the
ground line, the creosote being first
heated to one hundred and eighty degrees Fahrenheit. Two or more
coats may be applied time being allowed between each application for
tho creosote to soak Into the wood
What ls known as the Open Tank
Method, while mere expensive, secures
deeper penetration and gives better
results especially when the posts are
split or checked. The creosote ls
heated to boiling point ln a metal
tank and If such ls not available, a
simple and effective apparatus can be
made by boring two holes, about two
feet apart, ln the lower half of one of
the staves of a water-tight barrel and
screwing into these holes two pieces
of Iron piping three to four feet long
which are connected by a shorter vertical pipe with two elbow-Joints, thus
forming a complete circuit somewhat
resembling the handle of a mug.
The barrel ls then filled with enough
creosote to cover both upper and lower pipe holes and a fire ls kindled under the lower horizontal pipe which
heats the creosote In the pipes and
creates a circulation which continues
until all the creosote with the barrel
ls at boiling-point. The posts are
then placed In this boiling liquid for
about five hours after which they are
Immediately transferred to another
barrel of creosote, or else the fire is
put out and they are allowed to remain ln the tank until the creosote
becomes thoroughly cooled.
In this process the preliminary heating drives some of tho contained air
out of each wood-pore, and when the
posts are allowed to cool ln the creosote, a partial vacuum ls then created
In each pore which draws the creosote Into every fibre. Poplar posts,
which ordinarily last hut three to four
years, after the above treatment wlll
iast twenty years and the same applies to all other tree species ln Canada. All that ls essential ls thorough seasoning before treatment.

ROSY CHEEKS
STRONG NERVES
Should be tbe Birthright of Every
Woman and Growing Girl.
Many women and growing glrlt
who should have bright eyes, rosy
cheeks, strong nerves and elastlo step,
and a good appetite, are seen to decline in health. Their spirits grow
sluggish, the cheeks become pale,
temper fitful, and the nerves oversensitive. They may have Inherited
a tendency to 111-health, or they may
have over-worked, over studied or
worried until tho strength of the body
was not equal to the demands made
upon It.
To guard against a complete breakdown ln health tho blood must be
kept pure and rich. No other medicine can do this so well as Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, for they act both
on the blood and nerves, restore the
appetite and keep every organ toned
up. AH women cannot rest whenever they should, but this strengthening medicine ls within every woman's
reach, and will keop them ln tho enjoyment of good health. And lt Is
especially Important that ln every
stage of woman's lite the blood supply be kept pure and rich. The value of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills ls well
Illustrated by the case of Mrs. David
Chambers, Bensfort, Ont., who says:
"Some years ago I suffered greatly
from Impoverished blood. I was very
pale and thin and had no strength, I
took a lot ot doctor's medicine without getting any benefit, and at last decided to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
which I had heard highly recommended. It was not long before I began
to feel better, and after taking the
Pills for perhaps a couple of months
my health was fully restored, and although some years have passed I have
continued strong and healthy, and I
think I owe lt entirely to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
"Sometime later my daughter, then
about tw.'lve years of age, had been
working very hard at school and her
health gave way. She was weak
and listless and her hand:, and face
were badly swollen, and we feared
dropsy was setting ln. However, we
started to give her Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills and she was soon quite well
again. I always recommend Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills to uny suffering
as we did, knowing the benefit our
family received from them "

Jumping Fleli
Jumping aa a meant of locomotion
Is shared by a variety ot .nlmalt ot
widely different classes. Kangaroos
and Jerboas among the mammals,
thrushes and robins among the birds,
aa well as such familiar forms as
frogs, cockles, crickets and fleas—all
Illustrate this proneness to leap,
mostly as a means of getting quickly
over the ground, and even lions and
tigers, which never spring In ordinary circumstances, readily adopt this
method of attacking tbelr victims.
A considerable number of fishes are
remarkable for their leaping powers,
and several of these performers are
on that account specially favored by
anglers, since by Jumping clear ot the
water, la some cases many timet In
succession, they tax the fisherman's
skill more severely than fishes less
active, and thereby give addc-1 rest
to their capture.
Membert of the salmon family are
universally famous tor their high
Jumps. Tho sea trout, which gladden Devon waters under the seasonable name of 'harvest peal,' are untiring acrobats, and a flsh ot a pound
weight will more than Jump several
times its own length out of the water
when hooked before coming to the
net. Unless the fisherman responds
by promptly lowering the top of his
rod, the fragile gut ls likely to break,
and as lt Is part of every sportsman's
creed to appreciate his pastime ln
proportion to the difficulties lt presents, the sea trout stands high In
the tngler's estimation.
At their best salmon can Jump at
least ten feet above the surface, a
feat achieved by slapping the water
with ths powerful till and flexing the
body until the head nd tall all hut
meet.
The grandest of all these leaner*
ls the tarpon, otherwise 'allver king,'
or 'grand ecaille,' a monster herring
which may measure six or seven feet
and weigh 200 pounds.

Concrete is the best
building material
ABROAD statement—Yet literally hue. The aim of man horn tht
beginning has been to make his building materials as neatly like natural stone ai possible. The great labor required to quarry stone led
him to seek various manufactured subititulei. The only reason he ever
used wood was that it was easiest to get and most convenient to use. _ _
Wood is no longer easy to get. Like most building material, its cost is in-
creating at an alarming rate. ,
The cost of concrete is decreasing.   So, from the standpoint ol either service ot economy, Concrete is the best building material.
Canada's farmers are using more concrete, in proportion to their numbers,
than the farmers of any other country.   Why t
Because ihey are bong supplied with
Canada Cement —
a cement of the highest possible quality, which Itt-
euree the success of their concrete work.
The secret of concrete's popularity in Canada lies ia
the fact that while wo have been advertising the use
of concrete, we hove alee been producing, by scientific methods, a cement to uniformly high ia quality
thai the concrete mede with it gives the complete
satisfaction our advertisements promised.
Concrete would not heve been in tuch universal use
today, had an inferior grade of cement been supplied.
Insist upon getting Canada Cement. It is your best

his trainer as any slave to a master.
The training is simplicity itself.
First and foremost—obedience. When
a dog will without hesitation obey
any order which he can understand.
he is then taurrht to make the most of
his natural abilities. He learns to
crouch and hide, to watch and climb
and what a dog can do in that way
when once he has gained confidence
ls surprising, Finally the dog ts
taught how to attack a man, though,
once he has been taught to attack to
order he needs little training in how
to do it. So far as possible the dogs
are taught to seize their man by the
hands for a man once badly bitten on
the hand is practically hora de combat.
The strength with which these dogs
can and do bite is shown by the thickness ot the padded armor which is
worn by the men whom they are set
to attack in the training. This armor
consists of a complete suit built up
very much on the principle of a
cricket pad and with heavy leather
extensions on it to the feet and hands.
Over this is worn a coot and trousers made of a hempen material of
about the thickness of cocoanut matting, but much more closely woven.
This outer suit has frequently to be
replaced, as it is literally bitten into
holes, and the leather extensions on
the padded suit bear deep marks of
the dog's teeth made even through
the outer suit. Though thus heavily
protected the wearer is often badly
bruised by the force with which the
dogs seize him. Nothing shows the
obedience of the dogs so well as tho
fact that any one of them will at a
word from the trainer attack even the
kennelman who feeds them, and to
whom they are obviously devoted,
though they may have to stop licking
the hands that they may fly at his
throat.

How Clouds and Fogs Differ.
Clouds are bodies of moisture evaporated from the earth and again partially condensed in the upper regions
of the air. Fogs differ from clouds
only in one respect—they come in contact with the surface of the earth,
while clouds are elevated above our
heads. When the surface of the earth
Is warmer than the lower air the vapor
of the earth, being condensed by tbe
chill air, becomes mist or fog. But
when the lower air is warmer than
the earth the vapor rises through the
air and becomes cloud. Fog and mist
differ in this respect—that mist is a
fine rain, whilo fog is vapor hot sufficiently condensed to allow of its precipitation in drops.
The Moon,
Astronomers long since came to the
conclusion that the moon's surface is
very hot during the height of the
lunar day, which, as will be remembered, lasts two weeks, and very cuM
during the lunar night, which is
equally long. These extremes of tern-
ach their height at the
lunar noon and midnight and are
greater than any natural temperatures
on the earth.

to expect from bitn tbe small ilttcn*
tions It would be his duty lo offer It
she knew bim sociully.
Tbe best bred girls ns well as the
girls who are most successful In business never try to make the two absolutely dissimilar worlds mingle, but
keep tbelr social Hie entirely for Hit
borne.
Sometimes It happens that a girl
makes lifelong friends among ber business ussoclates, but It ts always best
to err on tbe side of caution. Make
many acquaintances, but few friends,
and let tbe latter be tried and true lie
plensnnt to everybody, but be In ne
hurry to form intimate friendships. It
you do this you will be spared some
painful mistakes aud many regrets.
If a girl is pretty and attractive she
ls sometimes ottered attentions by the
men ln the office. And she should be
very careful about forming promiscuous friendships.
If she happens to take tbe fancy ot
her employer and be Is a man of democratic spirit be will seek out the girl
ln her borne after business hours uut
pay her sucb attentions as uny friend
might honorably do, and that sucb a
thing rarely happens certainly sbowt
ln Just what category to place attentions from employer to employee.
The girl wbo enters business life
must not expect excuses to be mode
for her on the ground of sex. She la
not as yet on sn equal footing with
man in tbe business world, but sbe undoubtedly wlll be In tbe future. Woman Is discriminated against sll
through the Industrial world Just because she Is a woman. Sbe may de
as good work as a man In tbe same
position, but sbe cannot yet command the salary that he can. But If
sbe keeps on doing her very best and Is
prompt and energetic and neat In appearance, wltb a pleasant word and a
cheery smile for all comers, sbe can
already go a long way, and tbe time Is
coming when she can go still higher.

Customi it tht Table.
Wben taking one's seat at table the
chair should not be drawn too close,
for nothing gives a more awkward appearance than for a person to be seated
too near to the table.
As soon as seated take up the napkin
and If a rol! ls within lt put the roll
down at tbe left Tbe napkin ls then
laid partly unfolded across tbe lap. Oa
rising from ths table the rule Is to
leave one's napkin unfolded unless tbe
hostess folds hers. At s hotel or restaurant tbe napkin ls, of course, left
unfolded.
Grapefruit and oranges are eafea
with a spoon, which would be at tbe
right Oysters on the shall are eaten
whole, if possible, not cut In balf, and
nre eaten with an oyster fork, which
usually ls at tbe right.
It la not good manners to crumble
bread or to eat bread between courses
as though one were hungry.
For flsh, If tbere le not a special fish
knife, one may take a small piece of
bread In the left band nnd use It to
separate the bones from the flsh. Two
or three forks are usually at tbe left of
each place, the fork farthest from the
plate being taken np to use as each
course Is served.
Care should be taken to hold the
knife and fork properly. Odd ways of
holding tbe fork nre not good form.
When raising the fork to tbe mouth It
Is lifted sideways, never pointed toward the mouth. When cutting meat
the forefinger should rest on the handle
of the knife, never on or near the
blsde. A small piece of ment Is cut ns
required. When citing vegetables tbe
knife Is laid down, the blnde resting
nenr the center of the plnte, never
neross tbe edge of the plate. The knife
nnd fork nre placed side by side nenr
the center of tbe plnte when one list
finished. This custom Is followed nlso
If one's plnte Is sent for s second serving.
Little Polnta of Etiquette.
It ls courteous to shake bands with

It Is only necessary to bow sn acknowledgment    of    sn    Introdiioton,
though shaking hands Is cordial snd
