RESULT OF
Full Text of Letter to Premier
McBride from Delegates and
His Reply to Them.
The holiday in Cumberland, as
some few of the miners term it,
remains the same. Each and
every miner seems anxious to receive some information as to
when the mines will work again.
The following letter was forwarded to Premier McBride by
the officials of the U. M. W. of A.
Victoria, B.C., Sept. 21
Sir Richard McBride:
Honored Sir,—We beg to submit herein facts in connection
with the liases of discrimination
that has Anally culminated in a
stoppage of work by the miners
employed by the Canadian Collieries Co., at their mines at Cumberland and Extension, for your
consideration.
Some two or three months ago
> Oscar Mottishaw and Isaac Portray were elected as a gas committee to examine the mines of
said company at Extension and
. report on the condition of the
4 same as required by law.
During their examination they
found and reported gas in five
working places. The management of the mines, upon the posting of this report, called on the
Chief Inspector of Mines, Mr.
Graham, to come to Extension
and make an examination of the
places in question. This he did,
and the report of the gas committee was verified. Soon after
this the place where Oscar Mottishaw was working was finished
and he was refused another place.
New men were employed while
he was idle waiting for an opportunity and asking to work. Not
wishing to be the cause of any
trouble between the management
and the men, he left there and
went to Cumberland, where he
secured employment working for
a contractor in the mines of the
same company. He had only
worked there three days when
the contractor, Mr. Coe, received
instructions from the superintendent, Mr. Henderson, to discharge
him. Mr. Coe demurred, sayinfr
that Mottishaw was a good workman, and he had no reason to discharge him, asking Mr. Henderson what reason he would give
Mottishaw. Henderson insisted
he must discharge him, saying
he could tell him that he could
not pay him $3.50 per day, the
amount he had agreed to pay him,
whilst the men were being paid
that amount for the same work.
Mr. Coe complied with the request of Mr. Henderson, and discharged Mottishaw.
As Mottishaw was a member
of the U. M. W„ the matter was
taken up by the union at Cumberland, and it was decided to send
a committee to interview the
management. The committee
went to the office of the company
but were refused a hearing, Mr.
Lockhart, superintendent, saying
he would not deal with any committee, but would denl with the
individual who had any. grievance. Then Mr. Mottishaw went
to the office to enquire the reason
why he was discharged, and was
informed by the superintendent
that they did not have to give
any reason. They reserved the
right to hire and discharge unquestioned. Then a mass meeting of all the employees of the
company in Cumberland was called, and another committee was
sent to interview the management, but when they went to the
office the management refused
them a hearing also, Mr. Clinton,
who came to the door to meet
them, saying: "We don't want to
hear you at all," and shut the
office door.
The committee returned to the
meeting and reported. The meeting thereupon decided to take a
holiday until the management
would meet a committee and provide some means for the adjustment of difficulties and differences that may and do arise
around large industrial operations
Now, sir, the information that
we desire from you is this: When
men are appointed or elected as
a gas committee at any mines in
this province and do their duty
under the law, what protection
does the,law afford them? Does
it prevent the employer or his
agents from discriminating
against them or discharging them
in case they make a report not
satisfactory to the management.''

District President.

Int. Board Member.

The miners' officials received
the following telegram on Monday:
(Copy)
■ Victoria, Sept. 24, 1912
Mr. Robert Foster, President U.
M. W.ofA.:-
Have carefully perused your
letter of 26th inst., and fail .to
find grounds warranting an inquiry under the Coal Mines Regu
lation Act.   Letter follows.
RICHARD McBRIDE
(Copy of Letter)
R. Foster, Dist. President U.M
W. of A., Ndnaimo, B.C.:
Sir,—I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your
letter of 21st, setting forth par
ticulars of the alleged discrimination cases by the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd. against
certain employees, acting on gas
committee.  -
In reply I beg to confirm my
telegram of today as follows:
"Have carefully perused your
letter of 21st inst., and fail to
find grounds warranting an inquiry under the Coal Mines Re
gulation Act.   Letter follows.
Departmental inquiries are governed by Sections 43, 49, 50 and
52 of said act, and in the absence
of any specific charge a complaint
against any person or persons
affected by the operation of the
said act, the department cannot
undertake proceedings.
I have the honor to be, sir,
Your obedient servant,
RICHARD McBRIDE,
Minister of Mines.
CORRESPONDENCE
To the Editor Islander.
Sir: In your issue of Saturday
last, you made an endeavor to
give a resume of the strike sit-'
utation. Briefly you state Oscar
Mottishaw and another had been
elected to act as a gas committee,
then when gas had been reported
the Mines Inspector made his
usual visit and failed to find any:
then when Mottishaw finished
his place he lifted his tools and
was paid off.
Let us give a report of the situation, and let us say we are prepared to meet any who can confute the story. Mottishaw and
another were elected to act as a
gas committee, and in doing their
duty reported gas in five working
places. On the report being handed in the Mine Inspector was
brought in to to try and have a
contradictory report made on this
occasion. The Mines Inspector
was accompaned by the gas
committee, who had been informed after the inspection they were
correct in their report. Then
Mottishaw had his working place
finished, and went to make application every day for further
employment, while other men had
been employed. Latterly, seeing
it waa useless, had lifted his tools
and came to Cumberland.
On coming here he was employed by a contractor, and was tired.
When a committee had been
elected the management refused
to deal with them, but said he
would deal with any individual
who had a grievence. On Mottishaw going as an individual was
informed they reserved the right
to hire and dischargd unquestioned.
The men decided to a take holiday in protest, and hence the
lock out now in progress. Now
sir as you state in your issue
that Mottishaw was refused employment in Extesion because of
his interference with the fire boss,
will you be good enough to im-
form us why Mottishaw was not
told this at Extension Mines, and
at the same time let us know
where you got your imformation.
Either that or admit you have re
ported something you know
nothing of.
I should also like if you are fair
enough to state in your paper
that the men have no fear to meet
in conference and prove the unfairness complained of. In no
district, union, or non union iB it
known for a company to reserve
the right to hire and discharge
unquestioned.

accommodation that the trustees
requested some time ago.
OFFICIALS
TURNED DOWN
The officials of the local union
proceeded to Nanaimo, last Wednesday morning, for the purpose
of holding a conference with the
United Mine Workers at that
point, the object being it is said
to either get some support from
Nanaimo, or to get them to quit
work out of sympathy for the
Cumberland and Ladysmith
miners. Information has filtered
out through from Nanaimo to
the effect that the.miners at that
point turned the proposition down
cold, positively refusing to have
any thing to do with the Cumberland union officials. Nanaimo
evidently is satisfied with their
present conditions.
The latest news, by wire from
Nanaimo thisjmoraing, is that F
H Shepherd M.P.P., John Place
M.P.P. and Parker William M.P
P., are interceding,- and in close
communication with the representatives of the miners, they are
endeavoring to secure a settlement of some kind, and the soon
er the better.
Knowing that the public buildings of this province are under
the jurisdiction of William Henderson, the Resident Artchitect
for the Dominion Government
residing at Victoria, he should at
once commence to give the caretaker of the Cumberland public
building a few lessons on civility,
He might inform him that the
same is cheap, and let him know,
beyond a doubt, that its cost is
nil, that all gentlemen use it
and give it free

Not very long ago a gentleman
stood upon the platform before a
crowded audience in the Cumberland Hall and told the people he
was an educated man. He denounced the Islander and abused
this paper with all the foul language he could think of, which was
unbecoming a gentleman and
gave a vivid- illustration of bad
breeding. He went on to say
during the course of his argument
on Socialism, at what was supposed to be a union meeting, "We
demand what we produce." We
would like to remind him that the
production in Cumberland these
days is very small.
OTDER SIDE OF
Evidence Shows that no Discrimination was Used in Case of
' Mottishaw.
In another column will be
found a letter addressed the
Editor of the Islander and signed by G Pettigrew International
Board member, for the U.M.W.
of A. He wishes to know from
what source we derived our information. We have the privilege
to gather ftu'r news through what
ever channel we may think proper. On account of "the limited
amount of space at our command
this week we will leave the
trouble of Ladysmith alone and
deal with our own district only.
We would like to inform Mr Pettigrew that there are always two
sides to a question, and it is in
the interest of the public and the
district at large that both sides
be heard; then the people will be
able to judge intelligently for,
themselves
As for Jas. Smith, the Secretary of the union, his case is entirely out of the question. He has
not been in the employ of the
company for some months, so
that there is no discrimination
there. We may state the information we have regarding Mottishaw is that when he came to
Cumberland first he asked for
work at No. 4 Mine. Work at
driving a mule was offered' him
and this he declined to take.
Some little time afterwards he
started driving a mule for a contractor at the same mine at $3.50
per day, without first obtaining
permission from the overman,
while company drivers receive
$2.86 per day for 8 hours. We
know it has been a common practice for contractors, before employing a man of any kind, to
first obtain permission from the
management In this case it had
not been done. As a matter of
fact, the contractor was request-
to dispense with his services, lie
paying Mottishaw more wages
than the other drivers were receiving in other parts of the mine.
Next day, after Mottishaw had
been dismissed by the contractor,
he went to the manager and asked for the position driving mole
that was offered him in' the first
case. He was referred to the
overman, and informed at the
same time that all mule driven
were employed by the overman.
In this 'case Mottishaw never
made the application which he
was advised to do by the manager,
but stated that it was a case of
discrimination. Space will not
allow us to go further into details.
We will deal with it in our next
issue.
Messrs Hardy & Biscoe will sell
by auction on Thursday next,
10th. of Oct.. at 1 o'clock prompt,

Ah. but both or those came up and

shilling on me. And now I've met
you, and that settles it.
But what are you golup to do with

staring a little.
Walt and see, returned the young
man, or rather, come along and see
you haven't got anything to do, have

Nothing till bed time, snid the Ma-

The young man laughed. Bed time.

You needn't. All you've got to do

cheerfully. See you tenner turn Into lots and lots and lots more. Come
on. Djn't say no. you've brought
me luck already.
Major Easton laughed, and allowed
his companion to drag him on. ln
truth he felt little inclination to go
V-nck to his rather lonely rooms just
yet. The dark eyes of the girl who
had played the violin haunted hiin. and
he felt If he went home lie should
think of them more than was good

of them might be dangerous. For

and they were admitted into a beau-i

That young man winked back at him.

Here we are, said Benton twisting

That's an easy way of making

of young men. giving Raston a keen

battleship. If the United States
navy were composed of this type of
vessels tie result would be almost a
standing invitation ror some more
powerful nation to engage in combat
and sink the ships.
The more physically powerful a policeman is, the less trouble he encounters in enforcing obedience.
1 here was never a better idea originated thar, the equipping and mainten-
ence of gymnasiums tn police stations. And there ls nol. a more
workable Idea than the forming of
baseball football, and track teams
among officers of the law so as to
give them somu purpose for always
bettering their physical condition.
The patrolman Is an object lesson
not slmptv to the crook and yegg, but
to the rising generation. When Oflicer Casey rushes out Into the street
and stops a runaway team at the risk
of life and limb, he has set a standard of heroism in his precinct at least,
i-.nd this standard is bound to exert a
(rood infl-.-ence on both the boys and
the men in that neighborhood.
On the other hand, any display of
cowardice or physical weakness on
the part of a police oflicer, tends to
shatter the Idol of the law, and suggests to citizens the weakness of the
law. Put the policeman, for his
own sake and hecause he ls ever ex-

him, and again the Major was struck
by a curious feeling of dislike and
cf himself when the time comes.
The most successful ofllcers of the
law, and the ones who command the
most respect, are not those' who are
always ready to use the club or gun,
those who are willing to mix, not
through their power ot legal right,

The preaant geaentlon of Western farmers will never know the
difficulties hnd v-xatkns experienced hy their predecessors In the
earlier years whtn no one could get a carload; of grain shipped ln
bulk except Vy lo-.dlng lt through an elevator. The system forced
the majority of farmers to sell their grain to the elevator owners
at arbitrary prices, ond oft times to submit to heavy dockage and
other annoyances, causing continual dissatisfaction. Now however
the distribution o' * ars as fixed by the Grain Act, and the use ot th*
loading platform, provide facilities which enable tha farmer to secure
satisfactory treatment tn the disposal ot his grain, snd the highest
market prices at time of sale. Every farmer therefore, should mors
and more e'ideavnr to use the loading piriform ln shipping his grain
to the terminal elevators. It ts the safeguard ot the farmers' freedom in disposing of his grain to the best advantage for himself. If
farmers retrain Irom using the loading platform freely, It might result In ita helng dane away with, beoaure railway companies and
elevator owners ara strongly opposed to It. lt Is easy to understand why elevator people desire the bating platform abolished.
The railway -eople on their part say I: delays the loading ot cars
nnd helps tc, cause car shortage. This we know to be nonsense,
because frenuenlly after cars are loaded whether with grain, coal

MARRY YOUNG
The Rev. C.  H. Grundy Gives Some
Matrimonial Advice
Early marriages are better for morality, betler for the State, better for
cpolety, for domesticity, for the
growth of personal character, and better for ihe children, who will thus,
when grcwir.g up, rejoice In parents
who can be kec:i and Interesting com-
panioiis.
■ '.Thus said Rev. C, H. Grundy. M.A..
well-known as a lecturer nnd the popular vicar of St. Peter's Brockley,
England, to a representative a few
days ago
But do not therefore think, he went
on. that T am encouraging the youthful folly of Improvident marriage,
which bo often lends to misery.
At the same time, why should people want to start married life on a
grand and showy scale Instead of being content to work their way up by
iiegrees. The real fault ls the extra-
vagance ol bachelorhood. Tho word
economy lis not In thc dictionary of
many ni"ii until they think of marriage. All men Bhould begin to prepare financially for marriage Hie moment they begin to earn money. The
habit of thrift thus formed will be
qulto ns valuable aud helpful as the
money saved.
'You say thnt perhaps a girl has
been brought up according io standards of comfort that necessitate a
certain salary in the man she Is to
ir.arry, In order that she shall not
suffer by the contract; and I made
It a big noin' at one of my recent lectures Ihnt a register should be kept
containing tro names of young ladies
who are willing to take husbands who
possess rai'ticiiiar Incomes. Thus
the men would know which are the
$1500 or the $1700 a year girls, and
comprehend in which section to look.
That proposal was not received with
favor by some of thoso present, but
I may sny that my matrimonial bureau—w'lich Is really designed to do
nothing more than bring young
couple together by correspondence
—has proved successful beyond my
expectations. Already 1 have had
.'.40 lettoT—aome from the Colonies—
and .one happy pair will be leaviing
shortly tn nuke a home in Australia.
Do I aJvoeate State encouragement
or regulation of early marriages? No
sir. I most emphatically do wt; we
cannot have tlio policeman to control
our love nCalrs.. But what I do wish
to Insist upon is that parents might
do much more than they do to foster
early marriages. For the longer I
live the more I am shocked ut the
selflshno--s of parents; they not only
keep the gir's about them iu the home
Instead oi lotting them earn their livings, but too often they seem to take
a selfish delight In opposing their natural matiiinonlal yearnings.
The father likos to take hrs charming daughter about with him, or the
mother ia anxious to make her asslat
in the household management—and,
In any case, they do practically nothing to help her to meet eligible
partners And yet lt is often the
case tint such home-staying girls

In my opinion, parents can ltprdly
begin too early to train their children
for marriage. What? No, I don't
think I go quite so far as Lecky, who
advocated child-marriage, under certain conditions and strict supervisions: but 1 do think every man ought
to marry the moment he has sufficient
moans, and a sense of responsibility
and has found Miss Wright.
Yes. I am aware thnt child-marrlngea
have been allowed In Turkey, and
that in Spain and Switzerland, for example, a girl of twelve Is considered
of marriageable age. But I do not
make a \ nlnt of age so much ns of
the fulfilment of the above conditions;
and when I hear people saying that
marriage Is too responsible an undertaking, aud that lt may handicap a
man In his business career, I tell him
that 11 is only when a man is faced by
the imperative necessity for effort that
he puts iils best foot forward.
No. sir, I am not a relation of that
ancient, kill-joy, Ihe world-renowned
Mrs. Grundy! Nor am I by nny

T.ie Worst Case
The worst case of mixed metaphor
known, said a teacher of English at
the University of Pennsylvania, was
tbe output of Sir Ellis Ashnicad Bartlett. who belonged to a Philadelphia
lamily. Sir Ellis once wrote to the
London Times:
The concert of the powers in China
is u mere delusive screen, agreeable
In sound, very tickling to the ignorant ear, calculated to draw the cheers
of the groundlings, but which really
serves only as a blind to ourselves, as
a cover for ministerial inaction ns a
sounding board to toll our foes of our
plans, and as a lever wherewith they
are enabled to checkmate our policy.
Imagine, ended the Instructor—Imagine a screen doing all that!

TELLS    OF CURES    AMONG    HIS
PUPILS THAT WERE
REMARKABLE
Raw, Inflemed. Itching Skin is Soothed and Healed by
DR. CHASE'S OINTMENT
Barber's Itch Is a form of Ringworm, which when once started, is
most annoying and unsightly, and
most difficult to cure. Barbers often
refuse to shave anyone having this
disease, ior fear of.passing it on to
other customers.
But you can cure Barber's Itch and
keep tho skin wonderfully soft and
healthy by applying Dr. Chase's Ointment. Just read what this teacher
has to say about the healing power
of Dr. Chase's Ointment.
Mr. Chas. C. Polrier, Upper Cnra-
quet, N.B,, writes—"Two years ago
while teaching at Shlppcgan I caught
Barber's Itch. i. friend told me Dr.
Chase's Ointment would cure me. as
it had him. When I went for a box
I thought it dear, but when I found
how good it was I thought It cheap.
"Not only was I curod by tlut
single box, but lt also cured two of
my pupils, and this too quickly to be
believed. One of them, a girl, had
a running sore on the chin, which the
doctor had tried ln vain to cure. The
other had a sore on tho ear. I can
certify to the cure of these cases."
Wherever there is Itching skin or
a sore that refuses to heal you can
apply Dr. Chase's Ointment with positive assurance that the results will
be entirely satisfactory. The soothing, healing power of this great ointment is tnily wonderful. 60c. a box.

THIRTEEN YEARS
Unlucky Number for Dakota Woman
The question whether the number
"13" is really more unlucky than any
other number has never heen entirely
settled.
A So. Dnk. woman, after thirteen
years of misery from drinking coffee,
found a way to break the "unlucky
spell." i'ea Is just ns injurious a
coffee because tt contains caffeine,
the drug In coffee.     She writes:
"For thirteen years I have beon a
nervous wreck from drinking coffee.
My liver, stomach, heart—in fact, my
whole system being actually poisoned
by lt.
"Last, year 1 was confined to my bed
for six months. Finally It dawned on
ine that coffee caused the trouble.
Then I began using Postum instead of
coffee, but with llttlo faith, as iny
mind waa in such a condition tbat I
hardly knew what to do next.
"Extreme nervousness and falling
eyesight caused me to lose all courage. In about two weeks after I
quit coffee and began to use Postum,
I was able to read and my head felt
clear. I am Improving nil the time
and I will be a strong, well woman yet.
"I havo fooled more than one person witli a delicious cup of Postum.
Mrs. S. wanted to know where I
bought my fine coffee. I told her
my groce- had it and when she found
out it was Postum she has used lt
ever since, and her nerves are building up fine.
"My brain Is strong, my nerves
steady, my appetite good, and best of
all, I enjoy such sound, pleasant sleep."

That Mocha Myth
Twenty coffee experts testified Ir.
Judgo Landis's court ln Chicago, that
the world It is 200 years old. The
last shipment from Mocha of local
grown effee took place that many
years ago
This is no new.i to those who know
coffee. We have oft been told that
lhe cute Brazilians raise a special
Mochaesque bean, which they ship to
Aden, whence it Is rc-shlppod to the
world 'under the magic name of Mocha. Tho world has looked blandly
on at this, has bought coffee, drank lt
and tractably called it Mocha. Other
coffee countries may huve similar
schemes.

to be a geographical name and has
become a mere trade name for a trade

A Stick for a Hump
Swing a stick to cure a hump. Physical or mental. A well known physician recently stated that rawer
round shoulders would be observed In
our young men of to-day could they
but cultivate the habit of carrying a
stick. As will easily be seen, the
use of a walking stick inevitably
pulls back the arm. And so, quite
naturally, too, the chest is pushed forward, thu- allowing of its expansion.
Whereas the man who carries nothing
Is invariably nervously conscious of
his hands. And to hide them away
somewhere puts them in his pockets.
What happen i? By the very action
of thrusting his hnnds iu his pockets
lie brings his shoulders Into the line
of n slouch, and so to a stoop. But
to be at all efficacious the walking
stick carried must be of ordinary size
—that Ib to reach as far as tiio' hip.
A shorter stick fails in its' mission.
For eithel it ls swung In the hand,
with the othor hand in the pocket, or
it is carried high under the arm, with
both hands burled deep.
Clarice—Why, you proposed to May

What the Editor has to say.
The present industrial deadlock is one of the most unfovt
unate instances of labour tyranny that has ever come to our
notice. We often hear and read of the tyranny of capital, but
we doubt if the annals of capitalism can show a more glaring
example of despotism. The employees of the local mines have
only themselves to blame for the dilemma in which they find
themselves. We are not antagonistic to labour unions or org»ia
izations. On the contrary, we recognize and admit their value,
not alone to labour, but to the mercantile interests of a country
as they should make for concord and stability. But in order
to prove beneficial and efficient it is essential tlmt the members
exercise their franchise intelligently, and choose from among
themselves as leaders and officers men of responsibility and
sound judgment, capable of restraining and holding in check
the rash and headstrong, such as those responsible for the
present crisis.
We understand that the great majority of the employees
are not in sympathy with the present strike. In any event a
secret ballot, which is the only true test, has never been taken.
We have also been informed that the strike was not officially
authorised by the parent union, and it is doubtful if any financial support will be forthcoming from that source-
After diligent search we have failed to find any evidences
of public sympathy with the cause of the men in the struggle.
With long-headed thinking men at the head of the local union
we state emphatically that the present crisis could easily Imve
been avoided; and we therefore reiterate our statement that
the employees have only themselves to blame for the present
state of affairs. Strikes, or cessation of work, never was of any
value to the employer or employee. Whether successful or other
wise, it not only paralyzes the trade and industry of the whole
community, but the trade and commerce of the Company suffers
in consequence, which means a great deal to the employees
when work is again resumed, If the demands of the wage-
earners in the present crisis existing between the management
and the men were just we would certainly like to support the
man who works for wages. But iu the present case we must
frankly confess that our sympathies are not in accord with the
line of action taken by the local Union officials.
Every passenger train that goes out of Cumberland reduces the population. It is said that one hundred aud forty-
nine passengers left the city by Wednesday's train, A great
number of the men who have left the city during the past tli ree
weeks held up their hands for the "holiday," as it is termed by
the Union officials. To-day some of them are ou the Atlantic,
travelling as fast as a liner will carry them to Europe. Otliers
are producing coal at near-by points, supplying the market that
Cumberland has been filling until the "holiday" was declared.
Some of those who were wild with excitement when the trouble
commenced are to-day giving their less fortunate brothers the
glad hand while they take their departure and exhort those
who are to bear the brunt of it to "Stay with it, boys!"

Passing of the Stovepipe Hat
Rugby i.ft'i' many years, haa abolished ih-- chimney-pot hat, and—if
one of Mr. <;. K. Chesterton's theories he ooire^t—Rttgby may now soon
become a nest of singing birds, For
O.K.C, believes that the chimney
pot hat iu inimical to poetry. The
English h veil poetry, ho writes, more
perhaps that any olher people hefore
they ogme under the shadow of tho
chimney ool and the shadow nf the
Chimneypot hat. And ean yotl
think of uny tnU-hnttod poet? Ten«
lnys'on wris poetry beneath n wide-
ttwalce, and when he was made a
peer, Mr Gladstone was nfrahl that
the niijth' Insist on wearing 11 in the
House of Lords. What greal poet
have the top-hatted boys or Eton ever
given to the world'.' Byron waa n
a poet; But Byron was a Harrow
boy. ruirl Karrow has always worn the
Utr&w on its hair.
Before Miss Mary went away for

her when she was Roins, and how
tone she would he away. And this

THE STEWARDESS
What  Lite Aboard Ship  Means to a
Woman
Many women are Inclined to think
I lhat to become a stewardess ou hoard
I ihip is the easiest thins in the world.
' whereas, in reality, the work is by no
means easy   nor are such positions
lightly obtained.      Por the right woman, the life of a stewardess ir- fascinating   tt.   a   degree,   giving  opportunities   of   travel   whioh   otherwise
would   he  debarred  to  the ordinary
woman;  hnt it Ik most essential that
only the right kind of woman shall
attempt to take up such work
Mere love of travel Is not sufficient qualification. The stewardess
must iave some practical knowledge
of travelling, must be physically
Btrong, and a llrst-rate sailor, and,
above all J must at all times be unfailingly cheertul nnd tactfully Bympv.h
etlc.
The stewardess needs also to possess the girt of reticence, since ran'
a voyage passes without lhe stewardess being made the recipient of ibe
confidences of somo women travePot'S.
Preference, too, Is alwaya given to
women who have had some hospital
training One line, at least, makes
this an Ind isp en sable qualification for
their stewardesses so that It is worth
while .any woman thinking of adopting
the work flrBt to take a short hospital
course.
The stewardess gets splendid opportunity for travelling about the world
hut this is b ■ no means synonymous
with seeing the world. During a
voyage there are few people on board
who have tc work harder than dobs
the stewaides3, and ahe gels very
small time for sight-seeing. As a!
sort, of compensation, she has line opportunities for studying character— j
especially female character—and ob-.
tains a /cry diversified knowledge of
human nature by tho time she has
taken a few voyages.
As a general thing, It Is preferred
only to appoint experienced women as
stewardesses The Peninsular and
Oriental Steamship Line, for instance
only appoint women between twenty-
five and thirty-five in thia capacity,
and this age-Hmlt can be taken as a
very fair average.
The pav of a stewardess varies from
two, pouirls a montb upwards. There
are, of cuurso. no exponaea to be incurred while sailing, though between
voyages the stewardess has to keep
herself entirely, since it ia the general
rule to sign on afresh for each voyage. Beyond actual wages, a stewardess makes a lot of money hy tips,
since lt is tho recognised thing for women passengers to reward the stewardess. The amount varies, bnt a
stewardess reckons to make from five
to twenty pounds on a single voyage.
Most fteamshlp companies have
their stewardesses dress In a sort of
hospital-Mirse way while on duty. Indeed, tho life of a stewardess may be
compared to that of a hospital nurse:
It la equally strenuous, mentally and
physically, full of an infinitude or all
sorts of duties, and often calls for
most, self-sacrificing effort.
The stewardess must always think
of others hefore herself, and. whatever tbe irritation niust not suffer
herself to lose ber temper. Lost
temper usually means lost work.
It's cheaper to raise colls, than to
tit) i. yrses. But it'fi costly if you lose
th<: -lh;. Keep a bottlo of Kendall's

Shades In the Sea
Although it Is common definition to
call anything sea green, most people
hesitate between blue nnd sea urcon
when asked to say the color of aea-
wnter. As a matter of fact the
quantities of blue and green sea water
pre pretty equally divided. By nature <;rom, sea-water grows blue according to th'1 saltness of it.
Thus, the Arctic waters are as green
aa the crass of Ireland, while the Atlantic Is decidedlv blue—though not
as blue ns thf> Mediterranean Sea.
which receives practically no fresh
wafer at all. Beyond blue and green
K ls no unknown thin? for sea-water
to h* otherwise colored. Frequently
stretches of the aea will turn a radiant snow-white, and no scientist yet
has heen abb to give a reason for it.
Rqualty unsatisfactory nre the rea-
cnus given for the sudden changing
of sea-water to an Inky-black shade,
as happened a fow years ngo In the
Bay or Santa Cruz. Red and yellow
sea-water Is comparatively well
known through thp Chinese Yellow
Sea and tbe Bed Sea.
Various interesting reasons are
given for the waters bMnc such colors, but scientifically the shades are
declared to he due entirely to peculiar vegetable trrowths beneath tbo respective waters.
Which kind of a culvert
does
your waggon cross
DOES the road you use pass over rickety,
dangerous wood<*n culverts, that arc constantly in need of repairs and ofteq washed
away entirely?  Or is it carried safely across the low
places by modern, everlasting culverts?  Build your
CULVERTS OF CONCRETE
which  not   only cannot be  washed   away, but
actually crow stronger wrth.age and use.  ■
Every farmer owes it to 'himself to insist that the
money he paya for road-taxes bf spent to the best advantage. As a ratepayer, he is entitled to the hest roads that
can be made with that monev. i When culverts are washed
out, ami the road rendered impassable, he not only suffers
inconvenience but may also be caused financial loss by
inability to get necessary supplies in time for spring planting. And at best, with wooden culverts, part of thr mntie'y '
that should be used to make better roads mus^bc spent
every year for repairs. » \

Oh. lhe Apostles fives us Ihe key
to   bis   hopes;   |i,.   did   net   hope   thnt
the Heuvenly Fnther. whu Iuoi required ol Jesus ii iiiiinitestntioii of His
loyalty unto death before He would
crown Him wllh immortality at His
own right hand—he did not expect
that this same God would give lilm
a share iu tlin: gr nt glory nnd honor,
except as he should .demonstrate
similarly his loyalty to the extent of
his ability in being conformed to
Christ's death.
Tliere is ii lesson here for us. Tt is
in vnin thut we shall hope to slinre
tb ' Muster's glory if ive fail to share
His 'loyalty, His ignominy—to lie
dead with Him to the world, its
praises* its ambitions, its rewards.
"If we suff'T with Him, we sliull reign
with Hiin." And the only way to
enter into Hint reign of ctory will he
llirougli the power of "His Resurrection"—llie Chief R sunection.
The statement ot our text thnt lbs
rest of tbe dead will imt live until
the thousand years of Christ's reign
nre finished hns proven a stumbling
block to many wiio have studied too
superficially. Let us tint forget thut
tbe Spirit does not reveal tiie deep
things of God. except lo Ihose who
search for Truth "us meu teurcli for

sil»»r"—patiently,   persistently,  d?lv- j
iny deeply. .    l
It- is very easy for .ill to grasp the I
thought   Hint Messiah's  Kingdom   is .
to Inst a   thousand years,   mid   'hat
all who sluill be alive ut that time, i
nil   who  shall b° horn   during   tluit ]
period, will   participate in   the wonderful blessings nnd privileges which
it will bring   tn   the   human   family.
Tlu-y nre ready,'too. to   admit   the
reasniinhleness of   ghlng   an   equal
opportunity to those of our rnce who
huve    cone   down   into   death   with
either no knowledge of Christ, ns waa j
tiie ease for four thousand yenrs, cr
with   the   too   limited   knowledge   to
hen.-fit them, ns hns   been   the   ense \
during the oust Iwo thousand yenr-i,
imd to-day. "only this t x: respecting
Ibe "rest of the'dead" stands in their
way.    I  should be glnd  if nny such
are present   Ivr- to-day.   becnuse _ I
know 1 enn relieve tlieiu ef tlieir difficulty.    Yen. 1  shnll be glnd  if   mv I
words through tlic press shnll reach
mnny ethers who have been perplexed by this Scripture.
It is not necessary for us lo set 'bis
Scripture aside, even though nil Bible
scholars know, or should know, that
this portion of Revelation xx. 4. fi,
which' riates to "the rest of the
dead which live not again until the
thousand years are finished" is
soul ions—that il is not found in any
of the old Greek luanscripts. It is
supposed thnt it got into Ihe text,
not through any desin> |n corrupt
the sain ' and falsify lh- record, but
that in the days when the manuscripts
were copied hy pen, some copyist
made this mrmnrnndum on the margin of iiis manuscript ns n helpful
iltou'.'ht, and tbnt other copyists, us-
ini: liis manuscript! supposed It to be
n part of tli'-i original and inoqrpof-
ii!';d it iu th" text.
Hinvrv r, the additional words are
in no s'-ns" iu conflict with the (nets,
which ure these: Attain, creuted in
his maker's lik.ness perfect, wns
alive in tin1 sense tbnt he enjoyed
perfection of lif..' and that he hnd n
ric'il to n life everlasting, except ns
lie should forfeit the same by dia-
obedience. The moment he disobeyed
God's command he enmc under ths
sentence' of sin, namely, denth. From
that moment onwnrd be was judicially d nd. even though the dying process insted for more thnn nine hundred yenrs.
Similarly, nil of bis posterity, from
the Dit-iiie standpoint, are deod,
"children of wrath." Jesus carried
out this sum," thought in His teach-
inc. shying, "Let the dend bury their
dead." Onlv those who have accepted Him ns 'their Life-giver are even
r ckoiu dlv considered alive, trom
tli" D'.vin.' standpoint.
And so. throughout the thousand
years ol Messinh's reign. "All in their
graves shnll eome forth," "ev-ry mnn
in bis own old r"; but they will stil)
be, from the Divine standpoint, jurli-
cihllv dead—without the right tn
everinsliiur life. Tbe work of the
Lord Jesus, ns the Great Prophet,
Prcst. Kin'; nnd Judge, and the
, Church with Him. will be the Instruction and assistance ot toi fo'
their gradual uplifting out ot sin and
wenkn ss nnd imperfection—toward
perfection—toward acceptance jvith
God—town nl everlasting life. Such
•ns reject the assistance offered will
die tie Second Dentb. Such ns avail
themselves ef the bbssed privilege!
of thnt time will attain humnn perfection. But still tbey will not hnv-.
everlasting IK' accorded to Ihem.
Tb'V will merely lie in a good, suit-
■ able and ready condition for God tc
grant  them  everlasting  life,
Tiie tests i'or eternal life will come
ni the close of the Messianic reign—
'; when (lie creat Mediator lietween God
nnd men,"having accomplished Hii
work of restitution of the race, shall
deliver over everything into tbe bauds
oi the Father—the hands of Justice,
Kverlasliiig life will not be given as n
matter of incvey, hut ns n matter ol
justice—to those who-wiil demonstrate
their loyalty und worthiness of ever-
• lasting life. The mercy of God wiil
be exercised in tliu bringing of them
! to this condition, wliere perfection, is
word, deed nnd thought will be
possible.
The great temptation which will
then eome to all the world, llirougli
the looaillg nf Satan—the temporary
p-eiii^.-sioii of evil in the wield—will
denionstrate which of liiese resurrected troth the dead Cod ean approve
ami consistently '-'rant the great gift
of eternal liie. AU those who tail ii:
their trial will be destroyed with Sn-
tan in the Seeond Dentil, while all will
prove their lojnity will be aeknutvl.
edged worthy of everlasting liio.
Thus the rest of the dead, asidii
from those now on trial, tiie Church
einss, will not live in tha full sense
of Divine recognition us worthy ol
' everh.slitic life, until the thousand
years of   Messiah's reign   shull   hnvi
