FOR PRINCE RUPERT
Immense Drydock, Cold Storage
Wtt-ki, and Palatial Hotel
to be Constructed.
VICTORIA, B.C., August-In
accordance with the decision
reached at a recent meeting of
the Executive of the British Columbia Government, plans
are to be prepared almost immediately for handsome and commodious Provincial buildings at
Prince Rupert-- buildings which
not only will meet the necessities of the present but will anticipate the growth of the most important northern city of America
to metropolitan proportions, and,
as Sir Richard McBride has expressed it, "will set the pace for
the Dominion in the erection of
federal buildings at the new national transcontinental railway
terminal which speedily musl follow."
At the same time the Grand
Trunk Pacific, under its agreement with the Government, is
proceeding with the erection of
one of the largest and most palatial hotels in Canada, from plans
by F.N. Rattenbury, the author
of the famous Parliament buildings here, and of terminal works
aggregating more than a million
in money: while the construction
of immense dry docks, cold storage works, etc., assured further
the immedidate activity and substantial growth of this new
northern city, born "with a silver
spoon in its mouth." For
Prince Rupert's future is doubly
guaranteed by the Grand Trunk
Pacific railway and the British
Columbia goverment as partnership owners to the greatest extent of the townsite and guarantors of' its financial necessities
during the years of the city's upbuilding.
Prince Rupert is the first of
the western Canadian cities of
the first class in which the Government has retained a quarter
interest in the townsite, making
its selections of lots before permitting any to be sold, and naturally choosing especially well
placed properties. The gcve-n-
mental policy with respect to its
holdings is to place portions of
those upon the market at auction
from time to time, sales keeping
pace with the city's growth, and
thus more than -provide for recovery of the money advanced
from the Provincial Treasury
which so greatly assist Prince
Rupert's rapid growth and which
could not be justified did the Gov-
' ernment not stand as sponsor and
gurarantor of the city's future.
The first of these sales was held
in 1909--only three years ago--
and it was not thought that another would be necessary for five
years. Rapidity of civic growth
and substantial settlement have
however, forced earlier action
upon the insistent urging of local
authorities, lots in sections 1,5,6,
7 and 8--among the choicest por-
of the city-will be offered by the
Government auctioneer at Prince
Rupert on the 28th. and 29th. instant, the terms of purchase being as three years ago-quarter
cash and balance in equal annual
payments extending over three
years with interest at six per
cent.
Buyers at the last Prince Rupert sale find that their purchases
have grown in value since then
by from loo per cent and upward and as there is every sound

GREAT SUCCESS
Held at Courtenay Under the
Auspices of the Women's
Institute.
Never before has the Agricul
tural Hall, Courtenay, held such
a beauteous blending of brilliant
colors as was exhibited there on
Thursday, August 15th, under
the auspices of the Women's Institute. From the bold and presumptuous Scotch thistle to the
modest and almost human pansy.
It was flowers everywhere, wild
and tame.
Special mention should be made
of the collection of wild flowers
by Master Arthur Saunders, and
which attracted much attention.
The ladies of the Institute are
to be congratulated on the success of their first flower show,
the only drawback being that
Pluvius poured plerfteously both
on the just and thu unjust. Il
is to be hoped that the ladies will
continue the good work so well
begun, and that next year weath
er conditions will be more favorable. Rev. J. X. Willemar and
Dr. Crompton were very efficient
judges. . The following is a list
of the prize winners:

and Miss Gunn aud many others
from Vancouver. Presiding at
the piano was Mrs. C. J. Parnham, and she announced the
arrival of the bridal party with
the strains of the familiar wedding march. The little Misses
Donnie Hudson and Helen Parnham, looking charming in white
frocks with white satin sashes
and carrying backets of pink and
white sweetpeas, preceded the
bridal party from the house
through a path on the lawn banked with palms and pink and white
sweetpeas to an arch from which
hung a wedding bell massed with
white dahlias, where the bridal
party took their places. The officiating clergyman being the Rev.
Mr. Kidd. The graceful bride
looked very sweet gowned in
white satin with long train, trimmed with pearl and shadow lace,
and wearing the traditional veil
and orange blossoms, the veil
forming a cap and hanging in
graceful folds to the hem of her
gown. She also carried a bouquet
of white bridal roses and white
sweetpeas. The only ornament
worn was an emerald and pearl
necklace, the gift of the groom.
Miss Maud Winterfield, of Rad-
cliffe, la., cousin of the bride,
acted as bridesmaid, and was

ed. Denman Island is known all
over tho world for the hospitality
of its poople, and one hundred
and fifty guests sat down to a
sumptuously prepared wedding
supper, which would have done
credit to a millionaire. The tables
fairly groaned under the burden
of good things that were placed
upon them, but not a hungry soul
was heard to groan after partaking heartily eif these temporal
mercies, which al tests the fact
that the peoploof Denman Island
are well up in domestic science.
It was a particular joy lo the
bride's mother to see her entire
family of ten all present once
more in the old homo. A circumstance that may never occur
again.
In the unavoidable absence of
the Pastor, Rev. Mr. Kidd, who
was himself away on a matrimonial mission bent, the nuptial
knot was tied by the Rev. James

| How  Andrew  Jroder  Loaned  Orange
Hall  For the Mass.
It seems that we will have to sur-
I rentier the acoount of harmony between Orangemen and Catholics which
came out of Water ville, Quebec, hut
fortunately there are other incidents
of the same kind in, apparently well
authenticated, Canadian history. An
exact parallel, in fact, to what was
reported to hav i taken place in Water-
ville, occurred some years ago in lho
county of Dundas on the St. Law-
rence. "Andy" Broder, M.P., who is
highly popular with all sections oF
his constituency, was the good fairy
in the case. A priest of the county
was seeking to organize a congregation iu a settlement where he had no
church. It was his custom to hold the
mass alternately in the nomas of two
of the more pruininent uf the membera of his flock. The services were
held periodically only, aud cue Sunday when he arrived he was shocked
to And that his two chief parishioners had forgotten that this was the
day of his visit and had gone off and
locked up their houses. As soon ss
the other members of the congregation became aware of the state of af-
fairs, consternation spread. What was
to be done? Here was the "Father"
come specially to hold mass, and there
was no place large enough in which
to hold it. Then one of the troubled
ones bethought himself of their member of Parliament, who happened to
be in the village that day. So off they
went to him aud asked for his advice.
"Andy" is a Methodist, but that did
not daunt the troubled Catholics at
all. They knew he was a man and
an Irishman Nor did tbe difficulty
trouble "Andy" either — perhaps for
the latter reason. There was an
Orange hall in the place, and the big
Irish-Canadian went straight off to
the keeper of the keys and opened up
the hall, and mass was celebrated
there under the picture of William
the Third and ull the insignia of tbo
L.O.L.- Of course, there were a few
croakers in the lodge, who feared that
somo dreadful consequences might ensue from this radical departure from
established usage. But Andrew Broder is never at a loss for a reply.
"Do you think," he said to the
doubters, "that it would do King William more harm than he did them!-"
And that was tbe end of the criticism.

THINK of ihe suffering
entailed by neglected skin
troubles — mental because

pleasure of a clear skin, soft,

These blessings, so essential
to happiness and even success in life, are often only a
matter of a little thoughtful
care in the selection of effective remedial agents. Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment do so much for poor

Concerning the Duke of Connaught
thorn i.s a story which illustrates Ui«
lucidity of his mind and its grasp uf
detail. At the big Wiltshire manueu<
vies before the Mouth African war the
duke commanded the northern army.
The correspondent of a prominent
London daily who had interviewed the
duke with reference to the disposition
of hia forces on the eve of an engagement approached some of liis friends
and remarked, "Well, they can jolly
well say what they like about some
people getting credit for the suggestions of others, hut just look at these,"
and he produced some volutnjfioui
note which he had been making.
"The duke haa just reeled these off
to ine from his own head without a
scrap of paper or a word from another
soul. They give the position of every
battalion under his command. — Loudon Graphic.
WEAK NERVES
The Blood Supply Must be Made
Rich, Red and Pure
When you build up the blood you
strengthen the nerves, because the
nerves get their food through the
blood You cannot reach tho nerves
with medicine except through the
blood—this Is a great medical truth
few people realize. Nervous people
are pale people. They are nervous
becausj they are pale. The blood ls
so thin and watery that it cannot
nourish the nerves. Starved nerves
mean sciatica, neuralgia, nervous prostration, paralysis.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People are a real nerve tonic. They
supply plenty of nourishing red blood
to the exhausted nerves, thus enabling
them to i.o the work nnture Intended
they should do. This Is the simple
secret of the success of Dr. Williams'
Pinl: Pills In curing nerve troubles.
As lo their value In cases of sciatica,
Mrs. ,Tob Palmer, Fenelon Palls. Ont.,
says: "For seven weeks I suffered untold aeony from sciatica. I tried
everything to ease the pain, but it
steadily grew worse. Liniments had
no more effect upon the trouble than
water. Then the doctor told me to
apply a hot Iron lo the afflicted part
and I did so morning after morning,
but my leg had become bo numb with
the pain that 1 could hardly feel the
heat of the iron. I never expected to
be able to walk again my leg was so
drawn tip. 1 had tried so many things
that I had given tip hope, yet at the
urging of my brother I decided to try
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. To my
surprlre in two weeks I was able to
stand on my feet with but little pain,
anil soon after I was able to walk
about again. I continued taking the
Pills for about two months, 1 tit some
time before 1 discontinued their use
my leg had become normal rgaln, and
the ngony of the trouble had uisappenr-
ei, and I have not since had a twinge I
of It. Words fail to expresr. my grati-
tude for what the Pills did for me
and I s'rongl- recommend them to all
sufferers from sciatica.
The every day mission of Dr. Wil-!
Hams' Pink Pills is to cure cases like
the above, and they will not disappoint if given a fair trial. Sold by
all medicine dealers or by mall at 50

CANADA'S PULPWOOD, 1911
Discussed In a Recent Bulletin of the
Forestry Branch
Ever since the Province of Quebec
forbade the export of pulpwood cut
from Crown lands, considerable interest has been taken in the question
as to how the price of pulpwood would
be affected A leading paper trade
periodical estimated that the price of
pulpwood had advanced one dollar
per ccid. This Is corroborated by
the bulletin on pulpwood lately compiled by the Forestry Branch of the
Department of the Interior. According to this bulletin, the average price
of pu'pwood iu Quebec province during 1!l1l was higher by ninety seven
cents thnn during 1M0. In Ontario
tho price actually fell twenty cents
per cord, while in Nova Scotia and
Xew Brunswick increases of twenty
nine anl twenty two cents respectively arc announced.
A question thft is just beginning to
come Into notiee in the Dominion is
tlv irMHzat'on of saw-mill waste as
material for pulp making. A very
small quantity of such waste ls so
Utilized by three firms which own

DAME FASHION'S
DECREES
THIS if> the sd-f.illnl dead season in the realm uf fashion,

unfed au occasional gtimpSo of what will uie loug be given
out for approbation or disapproval.

proverbially becoming, nnd this year there are so many dif
t'erent colors and so many dill'eieat materials that the variety
is endless, while it is quite a fad to combine colors aud fabrics
that formerly wero considered im possible, one marked feature of this iiiiiiiiiim' is that the all white gown is su rarely
seen. Wliite is worn, h>\> of white, but rarely without the
relief of some color often most cleverly introduced ia the
lining, if the material of the gowu is transparent, or in the
collar; a narrow satin band as a iitiisli, or if the waist \n
in surplice folds; then just an edge of color outlines the yoke
or guimpe, hi' Is iu a knot of satin ribbon whore tin. folds of

given by the smart summer frock of white voile. The skirt
is short'and rouud. It is llukhed around tlm front with either
u wide cloth band or two of medium width, the same color ar
the voile. The waist, in surplice fouls, has a cloth belt, ti
narrow cloth hand, and the short sleeves are liliishod with ;
cloth cuft'. A pointed yoke aud high collar and close llttluj.
three fjunrter length lace cuffs finish tin! waist. The baitdi
iio uot  go around the entire shirt, uor does the fulness, foi
the  front   is left (piito  Hat   I  plain, and where the bauds
end there is au ornament nf pnssemenlerie. f,V the cloth is cut
in a design uud appliqued ou the voile. This modol is made
in all colors as well as in black und ill white. It is extreme
ly smart and generally becoming, and is,uot dillicult to copy
if attention is paid to the lines of both skirt and waist.
Figured voile is very fashionable, mure Ihuu lhe plain, und
there are many designs in stripes and checks of various a issu,
A jacket lo mutch the gowu is smart, made in voile, ami the
latest fad is to have the jacket uulined. A black and white
striped voile gown, a real one piece gown, with high belt
having medium width stripe, has a oat to match that hangs
straight from the shoulders, the nbly trimming a velvet collar
and cutis, light iu weight, nnd Iraiispnrunt as in the Abrle, it
is very smart made in this fashion.
Soutache braiding ou voile is not an absolutely new style,
but the building on voile thut is fashionable nt this time is
quite different from last year "s Cushion, It is extremely
smart to hnve a voile gowu fir rose pink made over u chiffon
or much liner voile lining or deep skirt, uud ou that skirt
there is a wide hand of soutache braiding put ou iu a curious
y.ig zag pattern. The overskirt is trimmed with two full shir
red bauds and between the two is a silver ribbon tied iu a
knol at the left side. This trimming is about six inches ubove
the hem aud does not eut the Mae of the figure.
The combining of two colors or two materials, or both,
is very smart, and. strange to sny, is now mosl cleverly de
signed so thnt then1 is uo sharp line to muke the figure
shorter. A most charming gowu is of the cashmoro pnttorn
voile, with tlte lower part of the skirl either of light weight
black doth or of a heavier black voile. The pattern of the
skirt is extremely simple in loose, narrow uccordlon pleats;
the fulness is gathered into the waist band, while the black
at the lower half of the skirt is less full. The wnist matches
the skirt, with the lower purt nf the cashmere pattern ami
the upper of black, with white or erenm Ince net yoke and
collar, <>n the side of the waist and skirt is a row of buttons
with loops of braid, giving the effect of the gown fastening
at the side. This breaks thetuoruund nppearniice of the
straight band of black. The sleeves nml tipper part of the
waist, are cut iu nue piece, us fashion uow dictates, and while
the style is a dillicult one to copy i. is so generally becoming
that it is certnin to remain popular for some time.
Vol lod gowns me not new, but mme the less they ure extremely fashionable,'ami the fashion is so practical that it is
dear t" the heart of the great majority of womankind. An
evening gowu that hits beeu worn so often that it is both
shabby and too well known to be smart cun be entirely renovated and made to look like new if it is draped or Veiled
with chiffon or marquisette or some one of the transparent
materials. A charming gown of white crepe de eliiuc and
yellow laee that had lost its freshness aad color, as well, was
entirely transformed by being veiled in yellow chiffon, entire
ly veiled, the overdress finished merely witb a wide hemstitching. Tbe new skirts erosa iu front and a moat popular
fashion for the veiled gowns has a narrow bond of embroidery
cutting the two fronts. I'earl, crystal, jet or silver beads
aru used for this embroidery or sonic effective passementerie,
the latter much less expensive; or a fold of satin or velvet
ribbon is also effective.
One of thc daintiest afternoon gowns is of palest mauve
silk voile, made with coat to match. Skirt, waist and coat
are accordion pleated, and skirt nnd coat alike arc finished
only with a wide hemstitching. Tho model is nn extremely
dillicult one of copy, for with accordion pleats or tucks
there is always danger that the ligure will not look well. But
this gown, made by an artist in tbe dressmaking profession,
is su carefully aud perfect)" cut that the pleats merely give
straight lines aad make the wearer slender. The only trimming is the transparent lace yoke aud collar, aud perhaps a
bow of real Valenciennes lacs,"or revers aud cuffs of the finest
lingerie trimmed with narrow Valenciennes. These simple
gowns, with the touch of real luce and hand work, huve an
Immense amount of style and originality, and are in delight
fui contrast with the ttio exaggerated aad over-elaborate
fashions that challenge attention by their eccentricity, and
are gaining in favor every day. They are far from cheap,
for as yet they require to be made by the best of work people,
but it will not be long before the knowledge of how to attain
the simple lines that are so becoming will he acquired, and
the women of good taste are already loud in tlieir praise of
such I'ushioiis.
Striped voiles are made up in most effective gowus fur
afternoon entertainments and are also used for dinner aud
theatre gowas. The black satin stripe with a pale rose or
mauve eh Iff or or voile is attractive fu< coloring, and, if not
too wide a stripe, is invariably becoming. These striped materials are made up over plain color, preferably white, and
are charmingly light and cool iu appearance. Then for those
who like the striped effects there are the soft finish taffeta
silks in blaek satin and white. A popular model for a theatre
gown is of this design, the skirt mude with the material
drawn across the front, and hud iu thii pleats at the left
quite high ou the skirt; the back is one double hox pleat,
gives au exaggerated high waist effect that is softened and
modified by four rhinestone buttons thnt hold dowu the pleat
tu the normal waist Hue. The front of the waist crosses to
one side and lias rovers of the silk over which are revers of
the finest hand embroidered batiste bordered with narrow
black satin. Yoke ami collar are of the batiste; the sleeves
lit close to the arm and are so long that they wrinkle like
long gloves and are finished at the wrist by :t twist of bright
cerise satin. There is also a belt of tho same satin that does
uot cross the pleat at the back uud is finished at the left side
wit\ a stiff loop that stands up against the waist. It is n
real picture gown aud looks well with a three corner hat of
tine black crin with plumes.
Satin, so it is said, is going out. of fashion on account of
its too great popularity, but let no womnn who hus invested
in it be disconsolate) for never were there so many attructive
satin gowns as there are this season. At the same time, every
effort is being made to introduce silks of all kinds. Change-
able effects in queer ribbed silks, iu moire, are among the
very latest novelties, while the most fascinating of summer
gowns are of the various kinds of silk, and there is every
indication that silk gowus are to he most fashionable next
winter for ihe theatre aud restaurant. The old fashioned
colors and the pastel shades are iu demand for the picture

Bible, a vast literature iu itself, eqnul to
about six copies of oar Holy Scriptures.
This marble Bible is oflgraved iu the
Pali language, thought to be that spoken
by Buddha himself in 500 B.C. Photo
graphs of some of these inscriptions
have reached Kurope, and the greatest
linguists of the Continent have examined them, who assert that, if llis Majesty
Mimlou miu thought to perpetuate the
leaching of the great Buddha by cans
ing it to be graven on a rock, he uour
ished a vain ambition.
The climate of Burma is moist, and its
effects have already wrought havoc oa
the surface of the white marble, the
photographs showing a partial effltCO-
meiit of some of the Burmese characters
iu which the Pali text is engraved.
Attacks of cholera and dysentery
eome quickly, there seldom being any
warning of the visit. Remedial action
must be taken just as quickly if the
patient is to bo spared great suffering
and permanent injury to the lining
membranes of the bowels. The readiest
preparation for the purpose is Dr. J,
1). Kellogn's Dysentery Cordial. It can
be got at small cost at any drug store
or general dealer's, and it will afford
relief before a doctor can be cnlled.
ONE FOR THE WIFE
IT was the same old story of a mail
who  refused  to  tell   his  wife  the
outcome  of a   business transaction
iu which, naturally, she took a deep interest.
••Xo," he sneered, "I won't tell you.
If I did, you'll repeat it. Vou women
can uever keep a secret."

THE  PROBLEM IN  THE FIREFLY
SCIENTISTS deplore the. wastefulness
of present menus of artificial lighting and regard it as strange that,
althougii so many havo worked at   the
problem   of   obtaining  cheap  light,   we
are. al  the beginning of the twentieth
century, so far from the solution. The
ellicieucy of the steam engine and of the
dynamo has Increased enormously; but
in the production of artificial light we
have made but small advance. Uut of
every hundred tons of eoal delivered at
our gas works something like ninety-
eight tons are said to be wasted so far
as the production of light is concerned,
and appear as useless heat. Vet nature
hns by some mysterious process, of
which we have not yet learned the secret, solved the problem of economical
light, lu the lirc.iy we tind a means by
which abundant. Illumination is produced without the expenditure of any
radiant heat discoverable hy the most
delicate instruments. When the physiological chemist cnn tind out the means
liy which this little creature affords so
much illumination, we shall be much
nearer the solution of a problem of vast
importance to mankind.

The editor does not hold   himself responsible for  views expressed by
correspondent*.
What the Editor has to say.
Ought a man to have a hobby? It depends altogether bn
the meaning we give the word. It is common in certain circles
to sneer at every measure of reform ns a hobby, to brand with
this disparaging name all attempts to defeat the heartless
Selfishness of men, and deliver the victims of oppression from
the powers of their plunderers. Even/ good strong man will
have a hobby of this sort, will (delight to strain himself against
a two prevalent evil, and do his best to promote the welfare of
the world.
But there is a hobby of quite another kind, the riding of
which cannot be recommended. We have all suffered from
such riders and many of us perhaps have inflicted in this way
some suffering on others. The hobbyist, properly so called,
usually takes up a matter of small account and presses it witl
impetuous eagerness almost amounting to mania: or, if the
matter be really important, he brings it in at the wrong time
without references to the propieties, makes extreme assertions
about it, takes hold of it by the wrong handle without tact or
judgment, and so alienates instead of attracting sympathy.
He becomes a nuisance whom people take considerable pains to
avoid, He fancies he is cutting a great figure and winning a
high niche in the temple of fame or the gratitude of posterity,
when in reality he hns   entered on  a  foolish   crusade,  doing
more harm.than good and causing the judicious to grieve,
ii
Let us pray   to  be  delivered from whimsicalities and eccentricities which make abroach between us aud the masses of
Humanity, from delusions which turn us into a bore or laughing stock.
May we be given light enough to discern the difference
between a great matter and a small oue, and between a thing
which can be done and a thing which cannot.

The Conservatives of Eastern Cnnada are busily engaged
in preparing plans for great celebrations of the anniversary of
the defeat of .Reciprocity on .September 21st last. Big demon
st rations are being arranged in Halifax (Premier Borden's
home city), in Montreal, in Toronto nnd in Winnipeg. In each
of these cities there will be outdoor celebrat ions, if the weather
is fine, and indoor if the climatic conditions are uupropitious.
In Toronto the exhibition grounds and the Massey hall have
h >th been engaged, and in Montreal the celebration will take
the form of a banquet to Premier Borden and his ministers, lo
which the anti-reciprocity Liberals will be invited to be guests
of lienor. What do the Conservatives of British Columbia
propose to do?—Colonist.

It is proof positive of its efficiency, All

THE FATHER OF SEED SELECTION
Who arc the men who lead the farm
ers of Canada? According to A. Frank
Mantle, who discusses the question
iu September Caundn Monthly (formerly Canada West), two of them are
Dr. James A. Kobert sou. Principal of
the Macdonald Agricultural College of
Ste. Aune de Hellovuo, and Professor
AV. .1. Black, Principal of the Manitoba
Agricultural College. Mr. Mantle's account of Dr. Robertson's life nud work
gives a surprising record of accomplish
meat.
"Dr. .lames A. Robertson is another
example of those men whom a busy, i
practical life has left little time for attendance upon lectures iu college halls,!
yet who have a great reverence uud do j
sire for learning aud have npctit their'
lives mainly in teaching. He was ablo |
to snatch but oue whiter from outside
claims fnr work iu college, but that 1
winter's work he considers to have boen
profoundly important in moulding his j
future career, i
"liefore and afler attending college
young Robertson wns a practical cheese !
maker and manager of cheese factories]
—a whyle string of them, At the ago
of twenty eight, just wheu the way
seemed opening up in the direction of
the university, eume the cull of the
Ontario Agricultural College that lhis
young mau who mude such good cheese,
who could induce otliers to improve
their met hods, nud who spent his
winters in the study of good Hternture
and sciontiiic subjects, should become
its Professor of Dairying. Kven then
the dream of a university training was
not abandoned, but it was destined
never to materialize.       It    was   from
Professor of Dairying at Guelph, that
Robertson went io be Commissioner of
Dniryiug for the Dominion, and also
at the same time Agriculturist at the
Central   Kxporiment   Farm,  Ottawa.
"Sir William Macdonald. of Mont
real, the tobacco nmlti-miltiouuivc, sized up the Commissioner of Agriculture
and Dairying, in 1SS!», us the right man
to entrust with the Macdonald manual
training idea and the funds necessary
to give il concrete form. This was
right in Robertson's line. His present
work was so well organized that it no
longer needed him. He had trained
others to till his place uud they are till
iug it today, lle was himself an example of the value of manual truiuiug
for was not that the route by which he
had arrived? lie went enthusiastically
into the new work nt his old Home,
Guelph, and -miu all Canada was tatK-
llig manual training, and classes were
instituted  iu  twenty one leading cities,
"Out of this grew the seed selection
work among the Canadian school chit
dren aud thus were the parents taught
agricultural wisdom through the school
plots of their babes and sucklings. The
work quiokly spreiid to the elders and
soon the Canadian Seed Growers' Association, em bin c ing uud encouraging
all the isotuted workers in the cause
of seed se liv tlon nml improvement from
one end to Ihe other of the Dominion,
was to emerge, with Dr. Robertson
as its president, from his efforts along

RINGS ON CIGARS
The practice Of placing paper rin^ or hands upon cigars had il« origin in the l
• iiilv duy of cigar smoking, uud tvas d'-signed as a convenience for Spaui-h uud
1 'libit 11 women smokers.
The Hist hands used were of plain Manila paper, which the woman smoUcr
teiuoved from the cigar nnd pin I upon her linger, for use iu Iticking the nsh
from the cigar without soiling or burning tho lingers.
Manufacturers Inter nought to improve the appearance of thoir cigars hy
substituting handsomely colored nnd emboBBod bands for the plain rings of
Manila paper, und the use of these finely lithographed kinds, for inaiiy
yenrfi eoiihned to the higher priced goods, has gradually extended, until at the
present time it  is almost  universal,
I u faet, to such nn extent, has the cigar ring heen adopted hy enterprising
manufacturer? that its absence from a cigar is in some circles regnrded as more
indicative of quality than otherwise.
The IJIX'K-KYK does not need any artificial enhancement of this nature.
The manufacturers of the [MM.,'K-1-.VK decided that, as their en's torn era did not,
smoke the band, it was bad business lo take good money thut should gt) towards
improving the quality of the cigar to put into ornamental bands.
That, i.s one reason why the l'.t'('K-KYK makes rings around all other cigars,
