PREMIER ON THE
STRIKE SITUATION
Say* Real Came of the Trouble
wat Attempt to Force U.M.W
of A. on Itland Minen.
Victoria, Feb. 16--Today was
the field day in tbA Legislative
Assembly on the ir ,uslr al struggle on Vancouver Island. It was
not the first occasion on which
the unsettled labor conditions in
the coal mining districts have
formed the topic of dicussion in
the legislature, but the labor difficulties in that section have never
before occupied the attention of
the members throughout an entire
session. The end of the present
debate is not yet in sight, for
Parker Williams who followed the
Premier in continuance of the
discussion on the motion of no
confidence in the government
still held the floor at 6 o'clock,
when acting on the suggestion of
the Premier the member for
Newcastle moved the adjournment of the debate.
Nothing could have been more
striking i han the contrast in the
attitude assumed by the two
speakers towards the whole problem. Sir Richard • McBride, in a
closely reasoned speech took up
seratim the points raised by the
member for Nanain • last Fr d ty.
The Premier dealt with the subject with a full appreciation of
the issues involved. In direct
opposition to this view was the
speech of the member for Newcastle who approached the subject flippantly, interleaving his
recriminations of those in authority with cynical touches which
were obviously uttered with the
intention|of raising a smile among
his hearers.
The Premietv who spoke for
more than an hour and a half,
devoted a considerable part of his
speech to showing that the real
cause of the industrial disturbances was not the report of the
gas committee as has been alleged by the apponents of the
government, but a'determination
of the United Mine Workers of
America to control the labor
situation in the coal mining
districts of the Island. The
Premier was careful to point out
that he had no quarrel with any
labor organization, but he taunt
ed the member for Newcastle
and his followers for refusing to
come out manfully with the
statement as to the real cause of
the disturbance, preferring to
draw a herring across the .trail
. in the shape of the alleged short
comings of the government.
Continuing his speech the Premier said: "Who is there in B.C.
who proposes to follow the honorable member for Nanaimo in
his charges against the government who will not conclude with
me that there is no man in the
province who knows better than
he does that there is little or
nothing in them, either against
the Department of Mines or myself as Prime Minister. The whole
case of my honorable friend is
destroyed at once by references
to his very strong remarks favoring the recognition of the United
Mine Workers of America, assuming control of the mine
workers on Vancouver Island. Of
course his reason for the strike
as given to the House was because
the Department of Mines would
not investigate a certain charge
of discrimination which was submitted some months ago by
members of certain organizations,
The honorable member for Na-
na'mo proceeded to argue that
workers of Vancouver Island
would be foolish indeed if they
attempted to set up a local organization in place of the all powerful United Mine Workers. We
know perfectly well that this is
at the bottom of the trouble, but
ifso happens that those who were
in-charge of the propaganda on
the island right frorn the start
felt that perhaps they might get
a better footing if they could
throw the blame on some individuals and preferably on the government. They have worked up
their case studiously and it is one
which unless investigated, would
appeal to many, but upon being
carefully looked  into one can
quickly absolve this government
from any blame in the matter
and as quickly place it where it
rightly belongs and expose to the
country and Canada as a whole
that they themselve are responsible for the situation that exists
today."
Proceeding to discuss the relation of the United Mine Workers
to the strike situation the Premier
pointed out that tbe organization
had taken the stand it had because it was felt to be a strong
one. well knowing that to come
out definitely and acknowledge its
true attitude which amounted to
that of a dictorship would be
rather an extreme step to take
all at once. Reverting to the
strike situation the Premier reiterated his statement that the
whole difficulty had arisen because it was proposed that the
United Mine Workers should be in
control of the coal mines of Vancouver Island and followed up
by quoting extracts from astate-
ment made by Mr, Farrington,
one of the principsl officials of the
United Mine Workers organization. He showed from the statements of Mr. Farrington that it
was the object of the organization
to obtain control of the coal mines
on Vancouver Island because
whenthat|was accomplished the
organization would be in a position of entire control in the coal
fields of the Pacific Coast. I have
sat silently for months and listened tb the reports of riot and disorder in the strike zone andhear
myself accused on many handsof
being rtsponsible for this condition, but I can stand in my place
today and look into the countenances of my friends from Nanaimo and Newcastle and claim that
I have done more by a thousand
times than either of them for the
workers of the country. I do not
claim any recognition, for that I
have never sought it. I can leave
that with the people. In answering the charge of Mr. Place regarding the, gas committee the
Premier said'that a request was
made that steps should be taken
to hold an enquiry regarding the
discharge of Mottishaw and Por-
trey but that no specific charge
was made in the matter, and to
this day no specified charge has
been made. He proceeded to
quote from a report by Mr. Motti'
shaw to the effect that No. 2
mine at Extension was not in a
dangerous condition at the time
the agitation about the gas committee orginated. He regarded
it as rather a peculiar thing that
the report which was supposed to
be fundamental in the support of
the trouble did not state that the
mine was in unsafe condition.
My friend from Newcastle has
not been behind hand in this
matter and I have read his
speeches on the subject. He tries
his best by all the the ingenuity
he can command to show that
this government and this government alone, is at the bottom of
the whole trouble, when he knows
perfectly well, because he can be
fair minded if he wants to, that
what was behind the difficulty
was the proposal to establish the
United Mine Workers of America
on the Island.

The Gleemen Gave Firtt Gait
Mutical Entertainment
on Monday
The concert given by the Gleemen in thc Cumberland -Hall last
Monday evening was something
out of the ordinary line. Cumberland audiences are not accustomed to being entertained for a
wholeevening by gentlemen alone
but those present seemed to thoroughly enjoy the novel experience. Every number on the program was excellent. Indeed we
thought some of the chorus work
hardly received the appreciation
it merited, The excellent blending and shading of tone gave
evidence of long careful and
very capable training.
The opening number of tho
program, Mr. Edwards' piano
selection, "Zampa", deserved a
better placed instrument and a
hall with better acoustic properties. In fact, all the numbers
suffered from the very bad acoustic qualities of the hall. When
will Cumberland citizens have
the enterprise to erect a hal
which will be worthy of an incor-
porated city, ar.d give some encouragement to musical development? "Soldiers Chorous" by
the Gleemen was good, and later
on in the evening would certainly have received an encore, but
the audience seemed hardly ready
yet to set their approval to a

The Star of Poland, the four-
masted bark which for the past
week or so has been loading coal
at the wharves of the Western
Fuel Company, was towed out of
the habor yesterday afternoon en
route for San Francisco. She left
with a full cargo. When she was
berthed the orders were for 4000
tons. When she sailed yesterday
affterndon she carried a cargo of
over 5100 tons.
While her port of destination is
San Francisco, the coal is not for
distribution there. She is chartered by a big fish and packing company, and the various tugs employed in the operations of the
company coal from her at tho
Golden Gate, thc coal being discharged direct from the bark to
the tugs. After coaling these
tugs the Star of Poland, with the
residue of her cargo and a consignment of stores, will sail for
the company's packing plants on
the Alaskan coast.
There are other three Ijarks
similarly employed and the Western Fuel Co. has also secured
orders to load these.

lordship Mr. Justice Morrison.
by Mr. A. Odgers, is an old favorite. The quartette, "Annie
Laurie", completely diss:pated
the lingering remains of uncre-
tainty, bringing a well deserved
encore, and from that time on
recall followed recall in enthusiastic appreciation.
Mr. J. H. MacMillan's violin
solos, needless to say, were
warmly encored, as they well
deserved. But what had happened to the vaunted masculine
superiorority? Miss Frame was
at the piano to occompany him.
With all our vaunted talent, Miss
Frame's place as a [sympathtic
accompaniest is hard to fill.
The part song, "In Absence", ,
by the Gleemen, well deserved
the encore it received. Mr. Hugh
Brennan, seemed to be in one of
tbe happiest of his happy
moods and with his humorous
song and step dancing carried
away the house. The very next
day "all the bells were ringing",
and there seemed to be a premonitory happiness in his manner that evening, that quite
captivated tho audience. We
wish them much happiness for
aye. and may life always prove
to be a step-dance if the right
kind.   It is a two-step now.
Mr. Jones' solo, "Come Into
The Garden," was an old favorite well rendered. The part song
'.Alice Where Art Thou," with
the huming accompaniment was
a pleasing variety and Mr. Ram-
sell made one of thc hits of the
evenilv? in his humerous song,
"Tho Skippers of St. Ives."
The enooi',5 was well merited, for
he gave expression to the sentiment of his song with much
feeling. We dare* say no more.
The quartette "The CatastrapW
was well done and convulsed tbe
house. "The Soldier's Farewejfe*'
by tho Gleemen closed the programed left every one wishing
lonjr life and success to the Cumberland Gleemen.
The attendance and temperature of the room were not all that
might have been desired. THE ISLANDER, CUMBERLAND. R.C

Mr. Silas Saluzo sat in a corner of

now eomparatlvv,-1! empty. Bohemia had eaten and was amusing itself—for the hour was between nine
nnd ten o'clock.
In ono corner, a crowd nf men discussed lager beer and politics; nt another marble topped table a couple of
Russians sat playing a harmless game
of draughts. Ily their dress and general appearance they might have been
taken for dangerous Nihilists. One of!
them looked at Salu-zo and nodded. lle|

face which had first attracted Saluzo

And Ihero flashed 'through the detective's brain an old French proverb
which like all proverbs he had found
to contain many grains of truth; Cher-

There was a girl away on tho Devon

In the north of lrelanJ was sent to
jail for two months. During the time
of his Incarceration .-, false report got
circulated about tlie village that he
had died in jail.
One dny, after oom'.ug out ot jail the
priest met him In tbe street.
Well, Pat, said the clergyman, I
heard you were dead.
Oh, sure, I heard It myself, replied
Pat, but 1 didn't believe it.

of assassination whlcn. he believed to

Ninety Sixth Year the Best in its
History
The 96th annual report of the Bank
of Montreal Is the best ever Issued by
Canada's oldest and best known bank,
The net profits for the year amount to
$2,048,000 as compared with $2,518,000
for the previous year, being at the rate
of 10.66 per cent, compared with 16.21
per cent for 191J. An examination of
tbe report shows tbe bank to be In a
particularly healthy condition. The
Capital stock of the bank Is now U0.
000,000, while the Rest Account Is also $10,000,000. During the year, dividend disbnratmenU; amounted to
$1,920,000, being made up of four quarterly dividends at the rate of 2H per
cent, and two bonuses each ot 1 pet-
cent. Altogether the bank has $3,-
451.000 available fo. distribution,
which is r.iade up of net profits for
the year of $2,618,000 and a balance
carried forward from ihe previous of
$802,000. Dividend disbursements
absorbed $1,920,000 and hank premises account $485,000, leaving a bal
nnce of profit and loss carried forward
of $1,040,000.
During the year eleven branches
were opened and threo closed, making
a net gain for thc yoar of eight
branches.
A further examination of the report
shows that steady and consistent progress was made throughout the year.
The Note Circulation of the hank Is
now slightly over $17,000,000, showing
a tain of almost J1,000,000 over the
returns of the previous year. The
Deposits show a gain during the yenr
of »2.50ft.nnn which must he consld-
ered satisfactory In view of the many
calls for canital made during the past
few months. The hank shows n
healthy Increase In gold nnd silver
coin, but on the other hind, Govern
ment notes nnd other onlnklv avail ihte
assets show a slight /ailing off. The
nronortlon of lloiild assets to the liabilities to the nubile is almost 50 per
cent, which Is sliehtlv less than It wa?
n. year ago, but Is still unusually high.
Current I^oans made throughout the
year nmottn'ted to almost S129.000.000
or $10,000,000 more thnn those mnd':■>
the previous venr. Considering th
many demands made nnon banks during the pent few months bv manufacturers, business men nnd brokers, the
conservative attitude of the Bank of
Montreal In holding current loans tr,
within Ji5.nnn.non of the nrevlo'is
veer's record must he regarded ns satisfactory. The total Assets of the
hnnk now stand at ntmect t14*; 000 flip
as oomnared wllb *l37.nnoono for tbe
nrevlous year. Altogether the showing- mnde'bv the Bank of Mnn-..*e.'il reflects the highest nrnlso on the nre.il-

How Much do you Know of Canada
Canadians, as a rule, know too little
of their own country. To know Canuda,
even In a general way, from coast to
coast and from the boundary to the
northern limits of settlement, Is a big
order, but It Is one to which every citizen of this country should apply himself. The study of the Dominion Is
not only Interesting; lt Is decidedly
profitable. It Increases the pride of
tho reader In his own land and lt reveals to him possibilities of which ho
has never dreamed, but which he may
himself realize—If he will.

the magnitude of this edition can be
gleaned from the fact that If the pages

half miles of wiro were required for
stitching the copies together, and two
cars to bring ln the paper, which
weighed some sixty tons.

Oratory and Seasickness
According to A. C. Benson it was the
habit of tho late Professor gidgwlck,
when crossing the English channel, to
take ills stand in some secluded part
of the vessel and to pour out audibly
and rhetorically his repertory of English verse, accompanying it with a
good deal of emphatic gesticulation. I
believe that the .first experiment was
successful .-.nd that he secured immunity from nausea. But he said the
second time that he tried lt ho was
interrupted by one of tlie officers with
a message from the captain begging
bim to desist on thc ground that some
of tlie lady passengers were frightened by his behaviour, being under the
impression that he was mentally deranged. Ho compiled with the request, and, deprived of its intellectual
prophylactic, his brain succumbed to
physical sensations.

National Conference Will Discuss Eugenics and  Effects of Heredity
and  Environment
A working plan having as its ultimate purpose tbo buldiug ot a perfect
race of mortals is to be formulated al
tho National Conference on Itaco Betterment to he hold in Battle Creek,
January 8, 9, 10, lt and 12, 1914.
Intermediately the plan contemplates
gradual betterment of living conditions, tlie achiovc:,.er.t of increased
human efficiency; and higher standards of physical and mental development.
For several years increasing interest has been centered upon the problems which .lie Conference has elected to consider. Tito muclwliscussed
eugenics movement is one of tlie channels in which tnis interest litis been
manifested. The well denned femln-j
lnifct movement is another out-cropping of the general groping for new-
race Idealn. These and correlated
topics will be considered a', tlio coming Conference.
The organisation of a national body
lo continue the wcrk Inaugurated by
tlie Conference Itself, will be effected.
This national body, lt is anticipated,
will arrange for annual meetings and
iu a very short Lime will lay the foundation for a world movement for un
'improved race.
Dr, Stephen Sniilh, Vice-President
nf tlie New York Slate Board of Charities, is tho President of tlie National
Conference on Race Betterment. His
advising vice presidents are Prof. Irving Fisher, of Yale; Rev. Newell
Dwlght Hillis, of Brooklyn; Hon. Robert L. Owen, of the United States Senate, and Dr. J. N. llurty. President of
the Indiana State Board ot Health.
The Executive Committee ln addition
to the vice presidents, Includes Right
Hon. Sir Horace Plunkett, formerly
Minister of Agriculture for Ireland;
Dr. J. H. Kellogg, Superintendent of
the Battle Creek Sanitarium, and
member of tlie Michigan Stale Board
of Health; Jacob Biis, social worker
of New York, nnd Judge Ben B. Llnd-
sey.
Tlie list of thoie who will take part
in the Conferenc. includes many men
and women of nutional prominence.
During the progress of the Conference there will be a comprehensive
mental and physic: 1 classification of
several hundred school children, which
will tako Into consideration the effect
of heredity and environment upon the
offspring.
Standards of mental and physical
perfection will be determined and a
general campaign to secure the world
wide adoption of those standards as
a true tost of mankind will be among
the other topics to be considered by
the Conference.

Health Officer's Report
The half-yearly report of Dr. E. R. Hicks, the Medical
HealthOfficer, provides food for much thought and scope for
action of a far-reaching nature, and we hope that it will
share a better fata that has befallen so many of its prede
cessors. The affairs of a community are after all fashioned
upon that of individuals. Individually we are not in the
habit of calling in a physician for the cure of our ailments
and then throwing his prescription into the waste-paper
basket. And why, as a community, should we pigeon-hole
the Health Officer's report, which is, after all, a prescription
to prevent disease-infinitely mdre valuable, as a matter of
fact, than a prescription to cure it, if there is any truth in
the old adage that " prevention is better than cure."
Dr- Hicks deals trenchantly with the question of our
milk supply. We have already dealt editorially with this
matter and we reiterate our previous statement that this
important question is one that demands immediate action;
we believe no stone should be left unturned to ensure a milk
supply that will stand the very highest tests. Our neigh
hours in the Valley-whence the bulk of our milk supply
emanates—have on more than one occasion hinted in the
press that Cumberland milk consumers were being suppliec
from very questionable sources. If there is any real foundation for these assertions we submit for the consideration o:
the city health department the propriety of taking such steps
as will secure a supply of pure milk to the citizens and that
if the milk supply is not what it ought to be purveyors of
unclean and insanitary milk should be prosecuted and
punished.
Dr. Hicks next deals with our inadequate garbage system,
His indictment-for it is an indictment-does not make
pleasant reading and should refer to a town of the Middle
Ages rather than to a community existing in these avowedly
hygenic times. The relief for the appalling conditions de&
cribed in the Health Officer's report, is inexpensive and, for
the credit of Cumberland as well as for the health of the
community, we sincerely hope the doctor's strictures will be
productive of a new and better order of things.
The suggestion made by Dr. Hicks are'under advisement
by the Health Committee and we trust they will, in the
public interest, take some decisive step towards giving effect
to the very excellent advice tendered by the doctor,
Canadian Northern Pacific Railway
We have received no report of the proceedings of the
Board of Trade meeting held during the week, but we
understand that yet another deputation is scheduled to wait
upon Sir Richard McBride relative to securing the main line
of the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway through our town
This is good news, for we admire pertinacity. Keep pound,
ing away, good people; it is a winning card. Convince the
government and the railroad authorities that you are in
earnest. It is the only way. We believe the Board of Trade
will achieve success ultimately, and they deserve it, for they
are not overlooking any points in the game. And incidentally this prompts us to ask why the Board of Trade are left
to bear the brunt of this fight ? It is conceded that if the
main line can be secured, it will be one of the greatest boons
which the town can get. Why then does the Council not
take it up, and as though they meant it ? We know that
last year the Council would have looked upon any scheme
having for its motive the " boosting " of the town as being
almost as heinous a'crime as a man dancing or being in love
with his own wife. But surely our new city fathers are not
going on record in this way. Let everybody give the Board
of Trade a helping hand in this matter and boost the scheme
along.   As "Shakespeare" says:-
Get out yourself and boost a bit and jolly folks along,
For knocking never makes a hit when things are breaking wrong.
If you should hear a kicker roar, just bump him off the roost,
And show the folks you're plugging, for your proper name is boost.

From Knee to Ankle
(From Vancouver Daily Province)
It has been known, so why disguise the fact, that ladies
have a habit of carrying their purses in their stockings.
According to our information this-is no longer possible and
fashion has decreed that the purse shall now be carried round
the ankle. The stocking was a place of concealment only as
long as it was concealed. Directly it became open to the
public gaze it became transparent and as a hiding place for
purse impossible. A pretty calf skin which contains nothing
is of no-value when payment for goods is being demanded
by a polite saleswoman or a man. If the latter it needed a
certain amount of leisure and grace to expose the purse,
withdraw it from its hiding place and return it whence it
came without being liable to arrest from one of the city
inspectors. In face of one of a similar sex with a natural
sympathy of for what lies beneath the surface, it may not
have been so difficult, but there was always the possibility
that a mere male might pass at the wrong moment and
allow his eyes to linger on the performance. In course of
time, however, the stocking receptable has become more or
less customary and no one evinces the slightest surprise
when a fashionably dressed female suddenly performs
acrobatic contortions on the rear platform of a street car
preparatory to handing the conductor her fare. Thus, and
thus only, has man become aware that woman hath a leg.
Now we understand the leg is to be abandoned and the
ankle is to take its place. As a matter of fact as soon as
the skirt was slit the leg was abandoned. It was exposed
in any case so why seek an excuse for exposure when there
was no necessity? The purse was temporarily relegated to
a handbag, but that, while it held the purse, hid nothing of
importance. The whole art and secret of dressmaking is to
create suspicion. Anything which actually hides is deplorable. Therefore to the real artist the purse of a woman is
something more than a mere receptable for dross. The
artist faces facts and proceeds accordingly. Ladies must
have purses, therefore he is anxious to design something for
which the purse is used as an accentuation. -Henceforth for
the season, at any rate, it is believed that the ankle is to be
the point of emphasis. As it appears from underneath the
skirt it will suddenly sparkle with a flash of a jewelled purse.
The eye will thus be caught at the foot and carried up the
costume. The principal part of the costume will be the
exposure of the stocking—there is no need to say more, in
fact, we dare not.
John Place and Responsibility
(From Nanaimo Daily Herald)
There was one statement in the recent speech of Mr.
John place in the Legislative Assembly dealing with the
strike situation on the Island, which deserves a little atten
tion. Speaking of the troubles in Nanaimo he said they
were insignificant. This is true in a sense. There was no
large distraction of property, and the number of citizens
molested and manhandled was not large. At the same time
it has to be confessed that the city was under mob rule and
that the troubles started in Nanaimo. There were some
disturbances here on the Monday, August 11th, and on the
following day a big mob assembled around No. 1 Shaft in
the afternoon. For something like two hours the officials
who had been at work that day were unable to leave the
shelter of the company's property. Anything might have
happened, and men with any sense of responsibility were
afraid of the consequences. Both Mr. John Place and Mr.
F. H. Shepherd were present at this scene. The latter
endeavored to arrange an armistice and suggested a twenty-
four hours' truce. The first effect of such a trace would
have been to disperse the mob and to afford time for passion
to cool. But the proposal, while acceptable to many of the
men, did not appeal fo Mr. Place. Arrange an armistice, he
advised the men, and you will have the militia here in
twenty-four hours. This killed the proposal. And here is
the point. From No. 1 Shaft marched the men who raided
South Wellington, the scene of the disturbances changing to
Extension the next day. Now it is a fair and reasonable
assumption that had the truce suggested by Mr. Shepherd
been agreed to there would have been no disturbances that
night, and none of the regretable occurrences at Extension
the following day. Mr. Place has been fairly free in placing
the responsibility for the strike and for the disturbances.
What is his own responsibility in the matter? More than
any man he prevented the acceptance of Mr. Shepherd's
suggestion for a truce, and the result was a further outbreak
of violence. ___»__,».___

Jacopo dl Enipolt was one day engaged in copying 'Tho Birth of the Virgin' ln thc- Church ot tlio Annunciation, Florence, when nn old woman on

How Royalty Sleeps
Uneasy lies the head that wears a
crown, says the poet. But the precautions that aro taken to assure undisturbed rest to King George of England must at least bring quiet to his
pillow. The outside of t'lo royal palace is, ot courso guarded by soldiers
and detectives all night, and several
night watchmen pace up and down the
corridors through the hours of tho
night, says the London correspondent
of the New York Sun.
These men are shod ln thick felt
slippers so that their footsteps will
not wako the royal sleeper, and one of
them Is always near the king's room
until his majesty is called by bis valet In the morning.
Every door and window In the palace Is frequently examined, and lt
would be Impossible for any Intruder
In get ln without being discovered.

from physicians, all failed to overcome the physical demands of my system tor continued indulgence resulting from my use ot liquor. Acting on

and was back home the next Monday morning in better mental and physical condition than I had been for over six years, and with a loathing

Curious Fish Spearing
In spite of the march of civilization
there remains much that Is still primitive in Sicily, and a curious sight at
Palermo is to see the fishermen spear
the fish lu the harbor by the aid ot
glaBS bottomed buckets, says the Wide
World Magazine. There are many
corners ot tlie world where llsh are
speared, but perhaps tho use of tlie
glass bottomed bucket ln this connection Is to be seen only at Palermo.
The fi'shermen lean far over the side
of their boats and hold tbo bucket on
the water with one hand, poking their
heads- into lt as if engaged In thc
Halloween game of ducking for apples.
They hold a spear poised In' the free
hand and thus await the arrival of
their victims, who are sighted through
the gluss bottom of the bucket, which
acts :,s a kind of telescope.

He ts trying hard to marry off that

Why doesn't he try offering a reward?
Just before he left London for a
well deserved holiday at Dunoon, Harry Lauder was Ulllng us some good
stories In his theatre dressing room.
One of them related to a christening
ceremony that was taking plaoo ln a
church In a mining district. The Infant that was to bo christened was
gloriously arrayed. Among other
things It wore a splendid bonnet,
which, when tho critical moment arrived, tlie mother had some difficulty
in removing.
With the eyes ot the congregation
upon her, the poor mother was greatly
flustered, and her attempt- to hold
the baby and take Its bonnet oft at
tho samo time seemed likely to end In
her dropping the Infant on the floor.
The clergyman turne . rather Impatiently to the father, a tremendously
powerful looking collier wiio was Blol-
ldly watching his wife's struggles.
Can you hold the child? he asked
sharply.
The big collier turned a disdainful
glance on the minister, rather a diminutive man. Man, I could fling him
over the kirk—an' you tae.
the palace during the night.
The elite were considerably mystified when their washerwoman whirled

little nettled besides.
Since wo do not, as a matter of social usage, pay our laundry bills, how

Why, by saving tho soap wrappers,
to be sure! tho washerwoman explained, in tho best of temper.

Sudden and extreme changes of
temperature u'e the exciting causes of
many diseases, but more particularly
such ailments as arise trom derangements ot the kidneys.
When the body Is chilled the .pores
of the skin are closed and on the kid*
neys Is suddenly thrown additional
work in an effort to rid the poisons
from the system. It the kidneys are
in healthful, vigorous action the critical timo is passed in safety, but
otherwise tli- blood is poisoned, there
are pains and aches, rheumatism and
lumbago, and sarious disease is a frequent result.
For this reason It Is i.iost Important
that tlu kidneys te kept In perfect
health during seasons of sudden changing temperature by use of such treatment as Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
PI'ls. Co us do not las,, long when
the kidneys and bowels are kept active In removing tho accumulating
poisons, and serous and painful diseases are avoided by keeping these
eliminating organs in health and vigor.

The success of western tree-plantiv I
lions depends not so much on the ell-i
malic conditions, a.: is erroneously;
supposed, but rather on the care taken
with tho delicate young seedlings be*
fore and after planting. To show thei
farmers how best lo obtain successful I
rosulls with their plantations nine Inspectors of tree planting are maintain-1
ed by the Dominion Government in
theso proilnces, and several bulletins
bearing on this work havo been Issued I
by the Forestry Branch nl Ottawa, and |
ean be had on application.
The principal trees planted In the
West are ash, maple, coltonwood, willow and Russian poplar, Tiie first
two do well together, und ash especially Is much ln favor with the farmers, h. ring probably the lowest death-
rate of any. Willow and poplar arc
usually supplied as cuttings nnd do
well together. The Russian willow Is
growing In popularity with the farmers on account of its ease of propagation, Its quick-growing qualities, hardiness and freedom from disease. That,
spruce, arch tamarack, aud Scotch
pine will alsr. do well on the prairies
is nt, longer questionable.
The best, results arc In all cases attained by planting tho trees ln the
soring in belts at least, twenty yards
wide on well-prepared soil, such ns
summer-fallow, or garden "innd. the
trees being spaced about four feet
apart and nluited in rows to permit
machine cultivation in order to protect
the soil from weeds and evaporation
until the trees g:'ow large enough for

A Story of the
Orinoco
By CLARISSA MACKIE     '■

It was very quiet In that Jungle
■long tbe upper reaches of the Orinoco
(her.
Charles Goodell, orchid hunter for a
Bib Philadelphia collector, stood on
Ste high back of tho river and looked
longingly up at tho cluster ot mauve
■(bids clinging to thc top of a rotted
fcec trunk that overhung tho river. It
was a lofty tree, and, bowed with disease and age, It bent Its head, decked
. Sjltb tbe dcllcato butterfly blossoms,
•ver thc slothful river that It would
Irldge when lt crashed down in the
hurricane season.
Goodell's Carib Indians had refused
Is climb tbe tree and were now squat-
stag sullenly mound a little Ore on
which a bird wns cooking,
Tbo mauve orchids tempted Goodell
ieyond discretion, lie decided to
■omit Iho tree and secure them him-
■slf, although he knew the risk be ran
to doing se.
If tho tree should fall under bis
Weight he would be flung Into tbe
Hvcr, n prey to the vicious alligators
■ the venomous snakes that abounded.
But tho securing of tbls particular
Specimen would not only be a triumph,
kut It meant a liberal sum of money
■dded to the store be was sating up
for a home nnd tho girl be expected to
■tike his wife on his return.
He bud examined the orchid through
lis flcldglnsses, and he was convinced
that it wns the long lost specimen that
jllr. Clay, bis employer, bad offered
110,000 for. 'i'beru were the delicate
■auv« outer leaves with the hearts of
taming crimson and orange, with marvelous strlplngs of black.
: There were two ways of reaching tbe
native orchids. One was to climb tbe
tree trunk with the risk of weighting
It dewn to destruction wben he reach-
ed the tipper part. Tbls way was hindered by a tangle of great vines that
THTt BULLET WENT OVER 119 HEAD.
I must be cut through with a machete
| before Ile could reach tb coveted prize.
Tbe otber way was to climb up th*
I great twisted vine that hung down-
I .ward from tbo very point wbere the
orchids clung to the tree. The viue
I swung almost within hi* reach now,
| and ita lower end touched the surface
[ of the water.
"The twisted Tine," he decided at
llast, nnd, tossing aside bis hat, he
I pulled on heavy gauntlets, saw that bis
| leather puttees covered every exposed
1 portion of his lower limbs and took
| hold of tbe twisted vine.
His Indians gathered around the tree
|wit|| Ibe eager curiosity of children ln
[the performance of bis difficult font
■As bo pulled himself up by the strength
■of Ids massive arms and shoulders bis
■legs and feet wero twined nbout tbe
■thick vine.
Suddenly the Indians uttered shrill
Idles of alarm nnd disappeared in tbe
fjunglo.
Goodell, glancing down, snw nothing
i frighten tbem, and, noting that hit
bpeclmens wero safe, went stolidly np
|>n his perilous climb; the vine swayed
now und then under bis weight, but
llts upper tendrils appeared to be firmly
fastened to tbo treo trunk, while Its
loots were strongly intrenched in tbs
■river bottom.
Goodell did not know when he felt
la change in the character of the vine
lap wblcb be was climbing with tbe
prehlds ever growing nearer to bla
Ager touch.
First the twisted vine had been
Isligbtly rough, but Its bark appeared
■to be smooth now, sometimes almost
•slippery to the touch, and once Goodell
[would have sworn that It moved. But
f tt was cold snd clammy. Once his face
[touched It, and be drew back with s
■ feeling of sickening revulsion. Be
I felt faint and dizzy, and he closed bis
(•7M.
When he opened them again lt was
\ to confront ths real horror of the
| situation.
Ho wonder bis Carlbs had Bed ln
Cater (bey wonld eeme bad!,
peering fearfully to gain possession ot
tbo specimen esses because their employer wonld never need them again.
Tbe heavy tine twisted upward to
the orchids now only fifteen feet above
bis head. He looked st them with
starting eyes because swaying above
them was the monstrous, threatening
bead of a boa constrictor whose great
body was twisted around the vine to
which ho clnng.
How his keen eyes had failed to detect tbe body of the great snake as lt
twisted up and around the large trunk
of the giant Tine he never knew.
Death stared him ln the face. If
ho dropped Into the river tbo monster's
tall could catch him ere be fell, and,
falling ln thnt, the deadly water serpents would put him out of existence.
Already the body moved sluggishly,
but his fascinated eyes did not leave
the hideous head among the orchids.
The flat eyes regarded him with cold
hatred; tho ugly mouth grinned.
He heard the distant shouts of his
Indians. Even If they had came to
bim thoy could not help him.
His flrst downward movement would
be the signal for the beginning of the
end.
Ho closed his eyes and prayed. He
thought of his mother snd of Alice
Blnko, the girl he was to marry.
His grip loosened on the twisted
(tine, so dreadfully imbued with life;
his feet slipped.
The vino moved.
no looked up snd saw that the ngly
head was lowered. (
Again bo slipped down and again
the vine moved. i
Cold sweat broke out on his body and
his face dripped. i
Now he bent his body ond looked
down at the tall ot the serpent   III
had loosened from the Tine and was !
moving to and fro like the pendulum j
of n clock. |
Death above and death below! Well,
he would die fighting. i
His hand found his revolver, and
ho wriggled around until he could see
tbe bead again. j
It bad flattened Itself among the ot> |
chlds and was regarding bim coldly
ns before. Ho would wait until lt lifted again, and when Its throat was
presented to view be wonld try to
Mow tbe head off. It would be difficult at that distance with a single
shot, nnd tho death agonies of the reptile might Involve his own death.       !
Goodell closed bis eyes again and
muttered a prayer as tho strongest
men do ln moments of danger. The
hend was lifting again and resumed Its
swaying movement. Higher, higher lt
went, until tho mottled throat was revealed.
Spat!
The bullet went over Its head. His
arm was unsteady; be must try again.
Again 'e raised tbo automatic revolver,
and again lt sounded on tbe heavy jungle uir. i
Spal! I
Tbe bead of the reptile wagged violently und all outlines were lost as the
bullet found Its mark. The great body
trembled violently, the tall lashed to
and fro, and the vine slipped down*'
word. I
Charles Goodell slipped down, his
eyes ever on tbo borrld specter of the
descending head. I
Once be glanced below a"d saw that
the tall was lashing tho water. Ha
took courage and slipped farther down.
The great body ot tlie dying reptile
came down with bim. i
Three feet n-ovo the river bank he
could stand the horror no longer, nnd
he dropped, clutching nt a young green
Tine that swung harmlessly near.
Tbo green Tine held and broke bis
fall. Ho swung violently to and fro,
nnd when a favorable opportunity presented Itself he loosened bis bold nnd
fell upon the ground close beside bis
heap of specimen cases. Then ho fainted away for tho first time in his adventurous life.
He recovered consciousness slraost
Immediately, for the shots bad brought
back bis frightened Indiuns, and thoy
gathered about bim with scared looks
and pointing fingers.
He took out bis emergency flask and
restored In a measure bis shuttered
nerves, no sent tbem to the river l»
look at tho dead carcass of the boa
constrictor, but always they came back
nnd gazed at him as though upou a
spirit from another world.
Looking at his watch, he found that
three hours hud passed siuco be had
climbed the twisted vine. It had seemed like fifteen minutes. No wonder he
felt like an old man under the consuming fear of those three horrible boars. |
Tho contiuuod wonder of his guides
excited bis Impatience, nnd bo drew
out a pocket mirror and looked at bim*
self. |
His face peered at him pale and haggard. Bis abundant balr was white
as snow. |
Tbe wondering Indians now climbed
the tree without protest, and the mauve
orchids which had blanched Goodell's
hair to obtain were packed away ln
the specimen cases, and tbe Uttle expedition turned down the river.
Many weeks later Charles Goodell
appeared ln Philadelphia and delivered
his consignment of valuable orchids to
bis employer. But the case of mauve
orchids came last j
"How about tbeser demanded Mr.
Clay eagerly. j
"Those," sold Goodell slowly, "art
the price of my nerve and a portion of
my youth. I shall never hunt another
orchid, Mr. Clay. Tbe price of ths
mauve orchids Is 125,000." |
"I will pay It" said the rich man
quickly, "and afterward you may tell
me the reason why yon value them so
highly."

Painful Isolation.
To avoid learning had habits Utile
Frank was being reared In tlio most

often became lonely playing by himself. One day bo was enjoying a stolen
Interview over tho back yard fenco
with some oilier boys. "Why don't
you come uud play with us." nsked

What Would You Ds If—
1' Bernard Shaw asks 11 male critic of
th" militant movement what he would
do if "a government of women coming
to the conclusion that lie. being a male,
was uot human, refused him tho vote,
excluded him from parliament and
from tbe Jurlo by whom persons of
his sex had to ue tried, turned him out
of court on occasions when questions
most intimately affecting his sex wero
at Issue, wroto up on the walls of tho
churches that a woman's property In-
eluded her ox aud her ass and her hus-
'build and everything lhat wns hers
nud absolutely refused to hu moved
from Ihis ; sltlon by any appeal to
reason or feeling, merely pointing out
superciliously f-oiu time to Cue that
his letters showed tin unbalanced
mind nnd that some of tlie best lucu
had never bad vo'e.i, had avoided serving on juries and had been proud and
glad to wheel perambulators Instead of
tiiiscxlng themselves by pushing lute
women's professions."
Appreeiation,
"Of course you owe a great deal to
your wife?"
"No doubt of it," replied Mr. Cumrox.
"She always gives soinp of the finest
parties of the season, and if 1 weren't
