PASSES AWAY.
Kingston, Ont,, Sept. 24.—Sir
Richard Cartwright, who was
Minister of Trade and Commerce
in Sir Wilfrid Laurier's cabinet,
and who underwent an operation
in the Kingston general hospital
last Thursday morning, took a
bad turn during the night, and
died at 11.25 o'clock this morning. At ten o'clok a consultation
of doctors decided that his life
was rapidly passing, and they
proved to be right, The venerable statesman lapsed into uncon
sciousness prior to his death.
Heart failure was the immediate
cause of death.
Lady Cartwright and other
members of the family were at
the bedside during the last
moments.
LOCAL ITEMS OF
GENERAL INTEREST
J. R. Lockhart, general superintendent for the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd., has gone
to Victoria.
Judge Abrams on Monday last
committed Hopkins the coloured
gentleman for trial at the next
assizes to be held at Nanaimo.
However others may feel about
this excitement, go slow and satisfy yourself that you are right.
Mrs. John J. Wier left last
Sunday on a visit to Victoria
and the Sound cities. She will
return in a few days accompanied by her daughter, Mrs. Forsyth
wife of the Rev. S.M. Forsyth,
B.D., who will spend a few weeks
with her parents.
We understand that when the
mines start up all employees of
the company will be called upon
to sign a two years' contract. In
that case the miners would not be
able to shut the mines down in a
day as was the case two weeks
ago.
The Italians held a meeting in
their hall at West Cumberland on
Wednesday night. Some of the
old hands invited G. W. Clinton,
who attended and presented the
Company's side of the case. The
audience gave him every attention
and seemed very interested in
what he said.
Physical health is the highest
kind of capital. Any man who

Frank Ramsay residence required renewing with tile pipe.
These matters were left in the
hands of the hoard of works i'or
immediate attention.
The sanitary condition of the
Matheson property came up for
discussion, this question has been
before the council on previous
occasions, It has been pointed
out to the council repeatedly that
there was only one closet for
several families. It was suggested that Mr. Mathenson be asked
to construct a septic tank, on account of there being no place on
his property were he could construct additional closets, there
being so many houses and cabins
on the same property. It was
moved and carried that Mr Matheson be asked to put his premises in a sanitary condition
within thirty days, otherwise
steps will be taken to compel him
to do the same.
Aid. Willard, President of the
Comox Agricultural Society, exit nded to the Mayor and Aldermen an invitation to attend the
Exhibition at Courtenay. He
was thanked for his kind Invitation and all who possible could decided to attend.
SITUATION STILE
Report of Committee Appointed
to   Interview   Mananement
Regarding Settlcmeat.
Thc United Mine Workers of
America and what were the employees of the Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmuir) Ltd. held a mass
meeting in the Cumberland Hall
lust Sunday morning. The hall
was crowded to the door. The
various officers of the union spoke
at some length, the object being
to select a committee for the purpose of interviewing the management of the company, they having intimated that they would be
willing to meet a committee of
their employees to ascertain the
possibility of milking a settlement
and ending the present trouble.
Several of the engineers spoke on
the matter, also the fire bosses.
They was some difficulty in selecting the committee. Some thought
there should be two of each, that
is, two engineers, two lire bosses,
two non-union men and two union
men. This proposition did not
seem satisfactory to some of the
men and it was finally settled to
have eight of a committee, one
engineer, one fin; boss, one nonunion man and five union men.
It was decided that this committee
should meet the management and
try to effect a settlement, and
with that object in view thej
interviewed Mr. Lockhart, tin
superintendent of the Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd., at
Cumberland last Monday morning. Mr. Lockhart received them
very courteously but wanted it
clearly understood at the outset
of the interview that he was only
prepared to confer with a committee of employees, and on seeing one of the checkweighmen
present he took exception to him
as not being an employee of the
company. After some little discussion the check weighman retired. The committee stated they
were appointed at a mass meeting
of the employees and were" there
as the representatives of the employees. The business w,as to
consider the cases of discrimina-
ation. Manager Lockhart said
he knew of no cases of discrimination. The committee said in their
opinion there were. The committee asked if it was not (rue
that Mottishaw had been appoint-
by the men of Ladysmith on a
gas committee, and because he
had made a report lhat was disagreeable lo the management
they had refused him work. 'I'he
committee said he came lo Cumberland and goi work with one of
the contractors at No. 4 Mine.
When the management heard
that Mottishaw was working he
was ordered dismissed.
Manager Lockhart said he knew
nothing about Ladysmith, at all
and it was not the case as stated
by the committee. In fact he did
not know that Mottishaw came
from Ladysmith at all. He was
dismissed because he went down
the mine without first obtaining
the permission of thc manager of
No. 4 Mine. The law holds the
manager responsible for all men
in the mine, and it is but right
that he should know all such. He
also stated the position of the
company is that those men will
not be reinstated as there has
been no discrimination. After
some cross questions the position
was clearly defined, the men
believing the one thing and the
management believing the other.
The committee withdrew.
KAS3  MEETING TO  HEAR
REPORT OF COMMITTEE
The employees held a mass
meeting lasl Monday aftenoon, to
hear lhe report of the committee
who had interviewed the management, concerning a settlement
jof the difficulties between the
men and the company, On the
platform were David Irving and
Pres Foster. John Naylor occupied the chair, and in his opening remarks he gave a detailed
statement of lhe interview that
the committee had wilh the management that morning. Thomas
Carey and Alex Walker together
with other members of the committee spoke at somo length,
their reports being almost similar.
The District Secretary said tluit
the Company held the right to
hire and discharge. After the
Italian organizer had spoken in
his own language, the report of
the committee was accepted.
John Comb gave an address on
miners unions in the North of
England and how such cases as
that before the meeting were
dealt with. His remarks were
very interesting.
David Irving then explained the
system of the U. M. W. of A.
The crowded audience seemed to
be very interested in whut he said.
He remarked if a man has a right
to live he has a right to work.
It had been suggested to take a
ballot of all tho employees. If
they demanded a ballot he believed they should have it.
It was unanimously decided to
take a ballot. One of the audience asked the chairman if the
Chinese were to vote. The chairman siid they were employees
and liad a right to vote. It was
decided to hold a ballot and gave
twenty-four hours' notice, the
same committee that interviewed
the management to act as an
election committee with power to
add to their number.
Ballot Objected to.
Last Wednesday the returning
officer appointed by the committee representing the mass meeting of employees failed te lake a
ballot as was expected. The
officials of the U. M. W. of A.
objected on the ground that the
Chinese should not vote because
they were supposed to have signed a contract to go fo work, 'lhe
returning officer appointed for the
election said he would either
carry out his original instructions
or not at all. At the mass meeting of employees held last Monday the Chinese were supposed
to vote. The returning officer
walked out and left Ihe hall and
no ballot was taken. The troubles
increase as each day passes. The
latest is the Company has given
all those residing in company
houBesin West Cumberland notice
to leave.
The Canadian Collieries (Duns-
ii)lmI*> Ltd. have taken their mules
out of the mines and placed them
nn lhe companies Kami, and reduced every thing to a minimum',
It all goes to show that the company is gelling ready for the
fray.
John P. White, International
President of the U.M.W. of A.,
has asked for a conference with
all the representatives of the
coal owners of Vancouver Island,
and the representative of the employees, The object of the conference is lo try and arrange a
working agreement between the
employer and empleyee, such
conference to take place on or
before the 1st. day of December.
The Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd. have given the inhabitants of No. seven 30 days notiee
to vacate the companies premises.
That means they must leave their
houses on or hefore the last day
of October. There is a hundred
first class houses at lhat point.
MINERS* DELEGATES
WAIT ON PREMIER
Premier McBride Fails to Find
Just  Grounds for   Holding
an Inquiry under Act.
A delegation of mine worker:
visited Premier McBride on Saturday in his capacity as Minister
of Mines, and voiced their grievances, chief of which was the
complaint that the ('auadian Collieries company had violated the
Coal Mines Regulation Aet, by
reason of their having discharged Mottishaw and Smith, the
miners claiming the two men
were discharged because of them
having reported, contrary to the
wishes of the company, gas prevalent in the mines.
After placing their grounds of
complaint in lhe form of a communication the deputation withdrew. Last Wednesday nigh!
the Premier intimated that he
failed to lind any grounds justifying an enquiry under the Coal
Mines act.
There the position remains, the
workmen insisting that Mottishaw and Smith be reinstated,
whilst (he company refuses to do
this.
Resume of Situation.
lt may be best for the benefit
of those interested and disinterested to get down to the cause
of this trouble. First we
will give the side of the
United Mine Workers. Some
two months ago Oscar Mottishaw
and Isaac Portray were elected
as a gas committee to examine the
mines of the Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmuir) Ltd. at Extension
and report according to law.
Soon after making this report,
fhe place where Oscar Mottishaw
was working happened to get finished. Refused another
place, he finally left and came to
Cumberland, where he secured
employment with a contractor.
For some reason, at the request of the management,he was
dismissed. As Mottishaw was a
member of U.M.W. of A. the
matter was taken up h.v the Uuion
here, and ilwas decided to send a
committee to interview the management, upon their arrival at
the comyany's office, Supertend-
ant Lockhart informed them if
any individual had any grievance
let them come and he would do
the best he could to settle il.
then a mass meeting was called
to discuss the question, and il
was decided to take a holiday until the management would meel
ii committee and provide some
means fur the adjustment of the
di Ili cul l.v.
Now, for the benefit of all con-
cerued, this is as wc know the
olher side nf lhe case.  Some Iwo
or Ihree months ago Oscar Motti-
shaw and Isaac Portray served
as a gas committee to examine
the mines at Extension. The.
report of lhe examinatii ,i was
posled at the mines and a copy
of the same was forwarded to the
Department at Victoria according
to law. We are told that the
chief inspector visited the mines
on his own initiative and lhat
during his visit he failed to find
any gas in the places reported by
the committee. A few weeks
later Mottishaw finished his working place, took out his tools and
was paid oil', if he did that he
certainly severed his connection
with the company, He may have
made application for re-employment but was refused on account
of his interference with the fireman.
SPLENDID EXHIBIT AT THE
COMOX FAIR.
Comox Agricultural and Industrial Association held a very
successful fair at Courtenay on
Wednesday and Thursday. The
gale receipts Were larger than
any previous year. The exhibits
were extraordinarily good, tliere
were Billion Dollar Fodder Grass
seven feet high, pumpkins from
Hornby Island weighing ninety-
live pounds. The fruit was very
choice. The sports were above
the average. Space in this issue
will not permit of giving a detailed report of the fair. The prize
list will be published in our next
issue.
CORRESPONDENCE.
(Editor of the "Islander.")
Sir,   There appears in the last
issue of tho Cumberland News
an article as follows :—
" It has heen stated in public
meetings recently that the
widow of Mr. Logan, who
was killed in the mines some
time ago has bcen refused
compensation by the Colliery
Company.   As far as we can
learn this statement is not
correct, as the compensation
due  Mrs.  Logan is at tie
Company's  office and   has
been there  for  some time
past awaiting Mrs. Logan's
acceptance.     We have also
been informed that she has
been advised not to accept it,
for what reason we do not
know."
As far as we can learn this
statement is not correct.   Tf the
company did not refuse her the
compensation do you think for a
minute the U.M.W. of A. would
have taken it up.   It was not
there  when Mrs.   Logan went
away.   If it had been she would
gladly have accepted the compensation. It has only been there
since the writ was issued by the
U. M. W. of A's. lawyer, and
served on the company to either
pay or appear in court in October.
They just had to the end of the
month to decide, and that is the
reason they have it in the office
for her now.    Another reason
they dont want to pay it through
the lawyer, they want some of
her relations to come and receive
it so they can say they did not
have to pay it through the U. M.
W. of A.
This is the stand that they
have taken with all the compensation cases sent in. He goes
further to say Mrs. Logan has
been advised not to accept it, for
what reason we do not know.
The editor of that paper must be
blind, as the man wdio advised
her was her legal adviser. I
uould also like to stat • lhat any
thing that has been said in this
particular case, either at public
meetings or at miners meetings,
has been correct, just as it was
given lo lhe lady herself by the
management

li was true. A little circle had
formed round tho two i^irls. a certain
liimli had come over the crowded
room, nnd the dark girl, taking her
bow and violin from their oaee, stood
for n moment looking up al her suiter, who smiii-ii gaily Into the faces
ol ilu- people around Iht.
Bhe is devoted to her Bister,
thoughi Boston, watohlng Vlolot
Brooke Angering her violin, as sho
gazed Into her sister's eyes. And
Indeed a complete change did come
over the young girl's lovely laee as
tho looks of the two Bisters mot and
they smiled at one anothor. Her
eyes lightened nnd became softer, her
lips parte,. Into a rare smile, and her
Whole manner seemed to become
more gentle,  less  eold. and  reserved.
Ami then the fair girl commenced
to sins;.
The .Major liad nol been to a theatre for some years, nor did lie know
very much abont muBlc; but it certainly seemed to him that bis host*
esH bad teen right, ami that Edtt
Brooke eould bave easily equalled
professionals on tbelr own ground, at
nil events bo far as singing and acting their songs eould go.
Quite at lier case, wltll her charming appearance and light, pretty
voice, she sang her little ballad from
one of the season's musical comedies
wllh a vivacity and tellingness that
would have been hard to resist. But
through all her prettinesB and arch*
neBs, behind all her smiles and the
pay glances 01 her sparkling eyea,
tliere still showed, to Easton at least,
that nue ir taint of wilderness and bit-
lemess that bad chilled lilm at. lirst,
which spoiled the effect of her beauty
and talent, ana made her dark sister
infinitely the more attractive to him.
I suppose It is hard luck for a pretty girl to be poor, he thought, remembering his hostess's words, but
1 shouldn't lilte to present that
young lady with my Income by marrying her. charming as she Is. Now
the other one—
His thoughts remained unfinished,
for at thai moment the Bong concluded, applause and the buzz of
conversation broke out again; and
the two sisters taking their congratulations upon tbem. passed him
on their road to the door.
Level with him, by some strange
chance, the eyes of the two girl's met
Gaston's. The fair one's embraced
in one swift glance liis strong ligure
nnd keen, bronzed face, and passed
on. The, dark one's met his fixedly for a moment which seemed mu 'h
longer as he gazed Into their dark
depths, and a little Hush rose to her
rafher pale. Impassive face. Then
ehe. too, had paused him.
The Major looked round for his
hostess. 1 must be introduced he
thought She promised I should.
Where is she?
But the goon tiatured stout lady was
nowhere to be Been, and in another
moment the two sisters hnd gone.
Gaston gazed round tbe room, and '
then took out bis watch. This is
getting very dull, be thought. 1
have really done my duty. It would
not be halt a bad idea to slip away
now.      I think I will.
And be passed down tbe steps into
the street, taking the direction ln
■which the two girls had gone, he
made bis way out.
He had no intention, of course, of
pursuing the two sisters wlio bad
made such an impression upon him!
but nevertheless he gave a little sigh
as. after getting bis coat and hat, he
gave a glance round the great hall
nnd saw lhat tbey had disappeared.
That Is the last 1 shall see of ihem,
1 suppose, he soliloquised. What
lovely eyes she bad.
And be passed down the steps into
the street.
But he was destined to aee somc-
ihing further of the girl with thc
lovely eyes, and that before very
long.
The night was yet young, and careless of the direction he chose, he bad
turned to the right on reaching the I
street, intending to Imve a stroll toj
clear his brain after'the tieat of the
qrowded rooms.
He had not gone very far, however. I
when coming to a quiet turning lend-'
ing out of the Bquare, he passed a
taxi-cab drawn up by the kerbstone
and caught the sound of a woman's
volet- raised In anger.
The nulling where ttie cub slood J
was verv dark, but lOuston, casting
a swift glance iu tbe vehicle as be
passed, and conscious tbat the voloe
seemed 'omehou familiar to lilm,
oould have sworn lhal one of tho
occupants of lhe tab was tiie fair girl;
whom he had just heard sing, and lie (
paused  a   moment   itl surprise.
As lie (liil si, lie noticed that a man
was standing on llie further side ofl
ile tasi, Iiis head and shoulders
through tin' window. Then u girl's;
' oiee this time—there was no mistaking It-Miss Brooke's, ordered the cabman peremptorily to drive nn.
There came an exclamation from I
Hie man a' tbe window, the cabman
let in bis clutch. Kustiin sprang aside, i
and tlio cati bounded forward. i
Curse you, cried the nuiii on the|
other side, and as llie vehicle passed '
him be struck swiftly at it, his lists j
hitting the panels of the door.
That's p. nice gentlemanly sort ofj
fellow, thought the   Major,   and   the
next  instant  the   man   lie  spoke of.
striding   blindly   forward,   cannoned
into blm.
Confound you, why don't you look
where you are going! cried Gaston,
bis anger already roused by the man's
behaviour, and half raising his arm.
Look out yourself, returned liis new
acquaintance roughly, catching Huston's wrist and pushing it aside, (let
out of my way, and lie strode on.
Now. shall I punch his head or not?
thought the Major, gazing afler the
lurching figure. I really should like
to! lt was those girls he was talking to, at least it was the fair one.
Tho blackguard. Hut lt would only
mean a row and the papers full of it.
and perJiapB their names mentioned.
No. I don't think I'll bother just now.
The worst of it Is 1 don't believe I
should recognize the chap again; it is
so jolly dark hereabouts. Well, it
can't be helped.
And reluctantly he continued his
way.
But the incident stuck in bis memory and engaged his thoughts to a
considerable extent as he strolled I
along.
I wonder what the row was about. I
he pondered, as he reached Flocadil-I
ly and paused for an instant, unoer.
tain which direction to take. Well,
It's no affair of mine, but I'm glad
Bhe was not concerned in it, at all,
events.
A voice at his side maiV him turn.
Hello, Gaston, what are you doing in I
Piccadilly at this hour? saiil a young |
and very smartly dressed man. clapping lilm heartily on the shoulder, and
looking at him with a cheerful smile
on his round, good-natured face.
Hello. Charles!       Only   having   a
stroll  after a hot and  crowded  "nt
home." Gaston smiled back, recognls j
ing Charles Benton, a sort of cousin, j
ja  gay  young man-about-towu. whom
| everybody liked and whose only fault;
I was a chronic scarcity of cash.
What are you doing?
' The young man laughed. Nothing. \
| he said, until I met you. Now fm|
j going to do you. You are just the-
I very man I want. You can save my
! 'ife and make my fortune at the same
time,     Lend me a tenner.
The Major smiled and felt In liis j

he said. I don't generally carry
many tenners about with me, but tonight I do happen to have one to
spare. I cashed a cheque this afternoon, nnd I have a good deal more

An Eye for Business
The late John H. Arbuckle, the coffee merchant, who left an estate of
100 million dollnrs. often said that a
part of his success was due to his
knowledge of human nuture.
In selling coffee, Mr. Arbuckle once
said to a New York coffee broker,
you should exercise the same keen
discretion which the druggist showed.
A woman, you know, a woman well
on iu years, entered a druggist's and
aaid:
Have vou any creams for restoring
the complexion?

The Biimmer day was nearly over,
and the last of the crowd liad gone.
The pier ani' sands were deserted
save for a young lady and man on

former. Along the road parallel
with the promenade came a red-faeed
man, corpulent withal. •
He gave a hasty look over the sands
and then bellowed:
Darling!
Tiie folk on the pier gave a Bhort
laugh, while the lady looked un fro i
her book, but budged not an inch.
Darling! roared the man in an even
louder voice. But there was no
movement on the sands. The pier
people could scarcely contain them,

The stout man lost all patience, and
picking uo a stone threw il, to the
accompaniment of protest from the

Tiie stone struck the man, who looked round to see whnt was the matter.

More About
The Loading Platform
The present goner «,tloh of Western farmers will never know the
difficulties and v-xall. ns experienced by their predecessors In tho
earlier years when uo one could get a carload of grain shipped In
bulk except ly io tiling lt through an elevator. The system forced
the majorl'y of farmers to sell their grain to the elevator owneta
at arbitrary lricts. and oft limea to submit to heavy dockage and
other annoyance.!, causing continual dissatisfaction, Now however
Ihe distribution o! -ars aB fixed by the drain Act, and the use of the
loading platform, provide facilities whlc1-, enable tho farmer to Becure
satisfactory 'roatcint in the disposul of his grain, and the highest
market prices at time of Bale. Every farmer therefore. Bhould more
and more e'ideavor to use the loading pliif-irm ln shipping hiB grain
to the terminal elevators. It is the safeguard ot the farmers' freedom In disposing of his grain to the best advantage for himself. If
farmers refrain Iro.n using the loading platform freely, if might result In Its helng dine away with, hec.ti.ee railway companies and
elevator owners nre strongly opposed lo I:. it Ib eiiBy to understand why elevator people desire Ihe leading platform abolished.
The railway eople on their part sny I: delays the loading of cars
and helps to cause ear shortage. Th'a we know to be nonsense,
because frequently after cars are loaded whether with grain, coal
lumber or other merchandise, they are sldetracke.'. for days and even
weeks instead of being promptly moved forward to destination. It
is engine s'.io-tage and shortage of competent trait, men that mostly
causes grain 1 loc.kadeo on railways and not lack of cars. Let every
farmer therefore, ti. all he can to use t e loading platform and become nn Independent shipper. In subsequent advertisements we
will Btate in detail the savings and other advantages of direct loading into ears compared with loading through elevators.
We handle the fanners grain strictly on commission, mnke liberal
advances on ~ar bills of lading, supervls" the grading at time cars
are inspected, seuire the highest pricej at time of Bale and make
prompt returns when sold. Wrlto us for shipping Instructions and

Elm  Le.-iris In Canadian Cooperage
Although the elm still leads among

cording to figures compiled by tho
Forestry branch of Iho Depnrtment of

i.gnlnst 3. ,704,000 pieces of spruce
Tliere were, however, over 11,000,000
more spruce staves nnd 0,000,000 fewer elm stavos reported for 1911 than
for 1010 In timo. elm will probably
be used only for hoops, as it is tho
best woo I for the purpose, tho supply
Is fast diminishing, nnd other species
inn be used to advantage I'or staves
and headings, Tho ultimate substitute for olm will probably be birch
wliich Is comparatively plentiful.
Slack cooperage Is of vastly greater
Importance than tight cooperage In
Cnnnda. This Is because tho majority of Canadian products aro of a
rough und dry nature, such as Hine,
potatoes, apples, dry Ilsh, flour, cereals, et.'.., and because Canadian
woods aro best suited to slack ciiop-

Wliile ,irk. the only wood whieh
cun bo used for containers of alcoholic liquids, has been prnctlcally exhausted III Canadian woodlands. In
1011 only 2./II8.000 oak staves were
out, while 7,203,000 were Imported.
A rough estimate on the part of the
Forestry Branch places the minimum
amount of material used in tbe manufacture of all classes of cooperage
as 62,868.190 bonrd feet, made np ns

KIDNEYS WERE BADLY DISEASED

Wss Completely Cured by Less Than
Three  Boxes  of
DR. CHASE'S
KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS
Women are very often deceived
and mistaken In regard to kidney
disease. The pains lu the buck ure
attributed to olher derangements, and
kidney diseaso Is allowed to run on
and on until boyond the reach of medical science.
There U needless suffering, and
life itself Is risked, hecuuso backache
Is not recognized us the most marked symptom of kidney disease,
There Is no treatment which so
quiokly relieves nnd cures kidney
pains In the buck, as Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver I'llls. As proof of
this read  Mrs.   Patterson's  letter: —
Mrs. itlchard Patterson. Iluldl-
niund, Gaspe Co.. Que., writes: "I
will gladly s.ij that I was cured of
kidney trouble by using Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills. When I began
using this medicine I was crippled
with soro back and did not know
What wns the trouble. In looking
over Dr. Chnse's Almanac I saw
Dr. Chase'B Kidney-Liver Pills advertised nnd decided to try them.
"1 liad not used, two boxes before
my back was nil right, nud before I
had completed the third box was entirely cured. Tbere hns been no
return of the old kidney trouble, und
I tb.oref.ire believe tho cure to be

i IN A SEA-CAPTAIN'S CLUB
| Where Master   Mariners   Foregather
and Chat
The National    maritime   Club,   in
| Fenchurel: Street, is the meeting-place
j of   slilp-uiusters   in   Loudon.       The
i members upend most of thetr lives on
j the ocean, nnd you may see in the
club-roomo men who a few weeks ngo.
I Perhaps, wore weathering out a terrl
lie hurricane 111  the Uulf of Mexico,
or were crawling down the dangerous
Formosa Channel, or steaming as hard
us they could go across the open Pacific or Atlantic.
The club was formed a couple of
years ago liy a few ship-masters, but
it bus now over six hundred men of
the sea on Its hooks. In no club
in London could you meet so muny
men who havo had so mtiuy strange
nnd thrilling experiences.
From one snip.master a newspaper
representative gleuned the fact that
he bad ouce been sllx days nt sen
with a Are In the hold of his ship, but
he hnd managed to keep the lire under, and reached Philadelphia safely. Another mariner mentioned In
u casual manner, that the only Utile
experiences ho could call to mind was
the picking up In the Pncilic of a
small boat with two men In It. Ono
of tbo ni"ii was dend, the other barely alive; Ills tongue fearfully swollen
was sticking out of his mouth, and
his eyes luul gone bo far back In tholr
sockels that they were scarcely visible. He was the sole survivor from
an American ship that had foundered
in mld-P.tclllc during a hurricane.
Captain Widgery. the secretary, nnd
one of the orlglnul founders of tbe
club, luiB had forty-five years' experience of tiie sea, and is now retired.
Captain Widgery, like his dub mutes,
is not much disposed to tulk of his experiences, but lie guve the representative, after much pressing, nn nccount
of a hurricane he had once beeu in
tbe Gulf of Mexico.
The wind was so bnd that the ship
could make no headway at all against
it and Captain Widgery ordered, the
engines to be stopped. Tbere was
nothing to be done, snid Captain Widgery, hut. simply to weather the hurricane out ns host we could. The
ship wus blown over hy tbe force of
the wind until her decks wero almost
perpendicular, nnd we lay like that
for twenty-four hours.
The water whipped up by the wind
completely enveloped the ship in a
driving cloud of spray, through which
we could not soe a yard ahead. The
sea Itself, you must understand, wns
not heavy, for ln these violent hurricanes so much water Is blown off the
surface o: the sea, that the waves are
compnrutively small.
Well, as I said, we Iny for twenty-
t2££ ^"r^JR-Oie^Hian half blown over,
anil the " roubie"was \ve did not know
where we were going, for during the
hurricane, an we suw neither Bun nor
stars, it was quite Impossible to take
a reckoning. We might havo been
blown on to ilie const and wrecked;
but as it was wo weatlwred the hurricane out In safety, though'we were
blown mi!es and miles out of our
course. Every particle of pnint on
tho ship cn the weather side wus peeled off In- tlic wind nnd water.
Whon the representative wns at the
club, the telephone bell rang frequently. At each ring the steward would
come in'o the smoking-room with a
message to sny that Captain So-and-So
wus required at tho telephone. One
of these calls was a summons that
warned tin* master mariner who answered it that be would lie wanted to
sail that evening, for Hong-Kong.

What the Editor has to say.
" If you want to realise your importance," says Robert
Burdett, "just put your finger in it bowl of water, take it out,
and look at the hole." It is said tliere is very little difference
between one man and another, but that httle is very important.
A man is said to stand on a little pedestal of his own who
makes the most of what is given him. A man who stands on
a pedestal is looked up to—is a leader, A leader is one to
whom someone looks for guidance.
When the guidance is wrong so??te one suffers; when the
guidance is right, some one is made happier—hence a leader's
responsibility. The weight of a leader's responsibility is not
determined by the prominence of his leadership. It is of little
concern to him whether he be a guide block ro receive ropes or
a driving wheel to a great engine. The important thing is
this, is lie in his own place, doing his own work, filling his own
sphere, find holding his owu post in the battle of life? It is
oae of life's certainties—the absolute dependence one upon
another. Wlmt would he the force or value of a great locomotive but for the fire thret burns unnoticed underneath the
boiler ', Whnt would he the speed of the great ocean liner but
for fche'stokers who keep up the steam pressure? The full
realisation nf dependence tind the keen consciousness of the
power of example -ere elements that are always present when
anything important is achieved.

TKe labour agitation going on in this town at the present
time neetls a leader with n. grent deal of perceptibility to bring
about a settlement of some kind or another, otherwise there
will be suffering that few men think of. There are men iu this
eity who huve families and have figured out their monthly
income to meet their monthly expenditure. They may have
purchased a lot in Vancouver and promised to pay $10 per
month and in say about two years expect to complete the purchase price. With ;i strike on hand they will be unable to
keep np tbeir payments and meet their current expenditure
I'or the simple reason their monthly income bus been going out
as they received it in the upkeep of their household. Another
reason why the serious situation needs a leader of far-reaching
foresight is because wo are told there are about eighty per cent,
of the men of Cumberland who are ready and would like to
return to work if there wnr only some means of settling the
unfortuuate affair that Ifascome upon us. At a time when we
were in u prosperous condition, buildings going up in all
directions, merchants reporting business good, the question is
lijw long will it last.
Strikes, whether right or wrong, always injure miners
more thun eoal owners whether they have been discharged for
good or bad reasons.       >

SHORTAGE    OF   BEEF
Department of Agriculture Advise
Farmers to Increase Their Stock
Saskatchewan will have a heavy
crop of coarse grains and roughage
this fall. Fays a press bulletin issued
by Iho Department, of Agriculture at
Regina. Sask. What are we going to
do with it? The greatest authorities in the livestock world today agree
that the beef shortage Is serious.
This shortage Is Increasing, not only
In Cnnada, but throughout the whole
continent of North America. The
average nrice of beef cattle ut Winnipeg for the year ending August 1st,
has been over 5 1-4 cents per pound.
What belter indication have we of a
steady fin ure demand. No elaborate
stabling is needed for the work. Cattle
will thrive in straw covered sheds,
will clean up tho stubble, will utilize
wughag" and convert It into a profitable product. Stock cattle are
scarce and will be scarcer after November 1st. Koop your calves and
young stock, especially females, for
you cannot replace them. Buy a
few feeders for this winter. Where
possible select big, smooth growthy
animals with large heart girth and
heavy hind quarters, and do It now.

Every now and then someone with
a eaiiino pet comes out with a story
about its Intelligence, and out of the
lot a few are worth retailing. One
Mich incident Is told by a Uermaa-
town man,
llis family possesses a fine Scotch
collie, which has all the Intelligence
whieh mirks iho good ones of his
kind. The family also has undertaken since spring to harbor a stray
dog thai belongs to no particular
breed, and is "just dog." Of course,
thoy are not very proud of lhis uninvited gueiit and have never paid much
attention to hiin.
When the family wont away for the
summer they took the collie to their
country home, which is about fifty
miles from tho city, and left the mongrel behind, after arran
nelghboi

they were worried and also surprised

Cause and Effect
Travelling in the wild and wolly-
West, a gentleman entered a small
township In order that he might make
the purchase of a watch and chain.
The shopkeeper was very pleased
to oblige, hut as he wrapped up tho
articles purchased he included with
them a fearsome-looking revolver of
very respectable dfmenslons.
I say, observed the astonished traveller, what are you doing? I didn't
offer to buy a revolver.
The watchmaker, puzzled in turn,
and thinking his customer must have
lost, his sense and reason, replied:
But you have bought, a gold watch.
If you are going to keep It in these
parts, you'll want the gun, too!

that is going to figure this fall conspicuously in the wardrobe of every

mostly made of white satin and, as I
said. Is extremely mannish In cut, after the masculine dlrectolre standard.
]t shows the long shoulder line, long
sleeves and a deeply opening Robespierre collar finished with plaited
frills In many cases quantities of
buttons are used to outline trimming
edges on this new model.
A delightful shirt of this character Is

"DON'TS
WHEN
VISITING
IpHERR are girls who always appear
to get more Invitations than they
can accept and who are asked to the
same houses over and over again, while
other fair ones. Just as charming and
'delightful to all outward view, never
by any chance receive second Invitations.
The popular visitor Is a tactful In
dividual who has the knack of so merging her Individuality fti that of the
family of which she la a temporary
member that she scarcely seems a visitor, yet she never mukes the terrible
mistake of usurping family privileges
She is not late for breakfast or any
other meul. She does not give orders
to servants or in any way attempt to
change the household routine
When she is asked where she would
like to go or whnt she would like to do
she answers frankly There is nothing
more irritating thun the "Oh. 1 don'l
care In the least!" or "Whatever you
like" reply The desirable visitor exercises her tact, however, in this as in
all other tilings and takes care not to
suggest fatiguing excursions to a hostess less youthfully active than herself
or force a host perhiipB nol too well
dowered with this world's goods into
needless expense If you desire to tie
a pleasing visitor don't he too ener*
getlcally hent on "helping." If you keep
your eyes open tt will soon become evident if there are small services you can
render any member of the household
Rut the girl who insists on cooking
some particular dish or "doing Die
flowers"—>ln both cases requiring half
ah hour's nltendnnce getting her properties together— is un unmitigated nuisance.
Don'l monopolize your host's special

TP vegetables not quite fresh are
brought Into the kitchen there is
no hope of ever restoring them to first

Most housewives think that washing
vegetables with water ts the last word

above suspicion, but when water is not
considered safe for drinking It should
be boiled as well for washing vegetables as tt should ba for family consumption.
As to the best way of washing vegetables, a few cautions will not come
amiss. Some people never eat espara'
gus st table unless It has been prepared by some one who ts careful, as
they do not enjoy biting on sand The
cleaning of this vegetable requires
conscience as well as time
The bunch should be placed, heads
down. In water for some hours and
should be shaken buck and forth to
dislodge the particles of earth.
Spinach Is another vegetable which'
requires the very best attention in the
cleaning line to free it from grit After the roots have been cut off It should
he washed In s number of waters aud
lifted out of the pun each time In loose
handfiiis before ths wuter has been
drained off.
Celery and lettuce nnd other snind
plants, eaten raw, must be washed
With especial care They should he
searched wiiii particular care, leaf by
leaf, for Insects, washed in several wa*
ters and then wiped dry with a clean
cloth and put In a culd plnce to become
crisp Otherwise theae vegetables are
not wortii eating.
