Press Comments
Victoria Colonist, Nor. 9, 1921 (Ladles' Musical Club)—"No pianist
known to Victoria bas a happier faculty for developing simultaneously appreciation and comprehension of all
types of composition. In her playing
of the most gigantic as well as the
most delicate things there seemed an
equal absence of effort.
Times—"Her technique ls well developed, sound and luxurious ln resource, and she possesses to'a remarkable degree a marvellous sense for
beauty of tone. She may be called a
poet pianist. •
Salem, Oregon.—"Mrs. Green thoroughly pleased her audience. She was
formerly a pupil of Moskowsky, Paris.
She has worked ln classes of Godow-
sky and has a reputation as being
among leading American soloists of
the piano. She won her audience first
by her technique and then by her own
charming personalllty. No composition ls too difficult for her flawless
style."
Vancouver Province.—"Mrs. Green
is in a position to command critical
favor from any reviewer, by reason of
the fact that she ls an exceptional musician, who has a thorough understanding of the resources ot her instrument. Technically she is well equipped with amazing fleetness of linger
and flexibility of wrist, while in point
of intelligence and aristocratic. taste

be said that she stands on a high elevation. Her pathetic message Is beauty In tone and design, and unfailing

times, and if upon the third call it is not claimed, then that number

announced on the sports fleld during the day.
Wong O. Sang To Hang
For Murder Of Wing Chung
Behind the grim scenes em.'&eil ln
the criminal courts of Vancouver today, where Wong O Sang, nineteen
years a resident ot British Columbia, ls
lighting for his life, charged with deliberate slaying of Wing Chung, another Influential Chinese, is there an
echo of the political turmoil that ls
upheaving China at the present time 7
Is the slaying and the subsequent
evidence given at the trial the outcome
of a fight between the Chinese Nationalists on the one hand and the representatives ot another warring party
on the other?
Is lt all the result ot a tong feud
with the Chee Kong Tong of which the
dead man was leader arrayed against
the followers of Wong O Sang?
These are the questions police officials and others who have watched the
trial closely during the last few days
are asking themselves. That the court
officers realize the manner In which
this trial has split Cumberland's Chinatown into two factions was evident this
morning. Every day a number of
slant-eyed Orientals have followed the
case with the keenest Interest. As the
second trial neared its end Tuesday lt
was plain that excitement had reached
fever heat, and when the Chinese arrived at the court this morning to listen to the closing stages of the trial
they were met by Provincial Police officials and subjected to a thorough
search tor hidden weapons.
Search Spectators
Sheriff Macdonald and police officers would not state If they had received any Intimation of a threatened outbreak, but not one Chinaman was allowed ln the court without being thoroughly searched and careful watch was
kept all during the proceedings this
morning,
"You can't tell them," said Sheriff
Macdonald. "We can't take any
chances."
i The case this morning commenced
with the addresses to the jury. For
over 90 minutes J. A .Russell, for tho
defence, in one of the most eloquent
pleas put forward in a local criminal
trial, held the packed courtroom spellbound.
Speaking In a conversational tone
of voice he quietly outlined the life of
Wong O Sang since thc latter's arrival ln British Columbia nineteen years
ago. He told of the early struggles,
the bringing out of the 23 year old son,
who sat in the courtroom, nnd then
briefly ho told of tlie events that led
to thc purchaso of tlie ticket to China
ovor which the fatal quarrel arose.
"His mother diod, his wife died,"
said counsel, "and Iwo Utile girls were
left alone in China. Wong O Sung did
what any father would do; he made ar
rangetnents to go to China and to do
that he went to Wing Chung to purchase the ticket."
Story of Tragedy
And then counsel outlined the story
of the defence. Briefly It is to the
effect that on October 5 last the money for the ticket was paid, but that
Wing Chung put the accused off from
time to time until November 13 without
giving delivery of the ticket. On the
latter date Wong O Sang again applied
for the ticket but was told to come
back ln an hour. On this last occasion
an attempt was made to again put tho
matter off, and then Wong O Sang is
said to have asked for his money
back, bitterly accusing Wing Chung of
not being a businessman. In retaliation the latter Is alleged to have seized an iron bar and struck Wong
aang who fired a shot to frighten him.
After that Beveral figures sprang
on him In the dimly lighted Interior
of the Chinese store, and In the resulting Btruggle two more shots were
fired. The next two minutes Won O
Sang states he does not remember
clearly, but later on he recovered consciousness with wounded head and
bleeding arm, lying hound hand ami
foot on the floor of tho store. It wan
in this position that he was found by
Provincial Constable Dunbar who bail
been Bent for by otlier Chinese who
captured him.
Alleges Intimidation
Mr. Russell went over the evidence
Of the witnesses for the prosecution,
all Jung men, and all members nf the
Chee Kong Tong of which thc dead
man was a leader. Ho pointed out
that some of the witnesses "obviously
intimidated or got at since the last
trial, had given their evldenco like
frightened rats" and openly stated
that the jury hnd (o consider whether
a man with a record as clear as Unit of
Wong O Sang for the last nineteen
years in this country was a "coldblooded murderer or the victim of a
fight between the Choc Kong Tung and
the Chluese National League."
s\Jr. Russell finished his address at
12:15 and Immediately A. 11. Macdonald, K.C, rose lo reply. For twenty-
live minutes he addressed the Jury, reconstructing the crime frum the standpoint of the prosecution.
He pointed out lhat for years the
dead man had beon a tried and trusted
agent of the Canadian Pacific Railway
and that bo had handled large sums of
money for them in lhat time. Was ll
conceivable that for (65, thc sum lu-

Must Not Dismiss
District Engineer
A meeting called by the Rev. Thos.
Menzies, M.L.A., to explain his attitude tn regard to the proposed dismissal of Capt. W. A. Richardson as
Assistant District Engineer, ut the
Agricultural Hall, Courtenay, on Tuesday niglit, was attended by a tense and
expectant crowd from all over the district. At Its close tlio following resolution was passed unanimously, proposed by Mr. J. E. Nelson of Mervllle
nud seconded by Mr. C. E. Fitzgerald
ot Campbell River:
The lli'siiliilluii
"That this meeting expresses Its
entire satisfaction In every wny with
ihe work of* Capt, Kielumison and de-
uiands liis reinstatement as District
Engineer; and it asks the present
member to use his best efforts to support this resolution."
Capt Richardson's Speech
Capt. W. A. Richardson said lie felt
lie had been done n great Injustice and
lie proposed to light it. Ho had been
lold that Mr. Menzies had promises'
lhat If he got In he (('apt. Richardson)
would be removed. He called on Mr.
Hughes ot* Mervllle. to corrobate this.
Mr. Hughes; "Not in those words,
but lie gave me to understand you
would be removed." Mr. R. K, Donaldson also said he understood Mr.
Menzies to say that.—Mr. Nelson of
Mervllle thought perhaps the statement referred to might have been one
to llie effect that Mr. Menzies would
supersede civil engineers witli road
engineers.—"Anyway."' said Capt.
Richardson resuming. "I certainly
had the impression tiiat Mr. Menzies
had been antagonistic to me right from
the drop of the hat."
Mr. Menzies in reply said he thought
both he and Capt. Richardson had been
a little In the dark and lie was glad to
clear the matter up. . Ho was a friend
of Capt. Richardson.
Mr. R. M. Hughes: Mr. Menzies
personally mentioned Capt. Richardson's nume in his speech at Mervllle
when he was speaking about, the removal of civil engineers.
Mr. .Mouzio's I 'in in I
Mr. Menzies: "I contradict that
statement." Mr. Menzies went on to
state tiiat ho had met Mi-. Swan and
Mr. J. McKenzie, jr.. with Capt. Richardson nt Victoria and declared that
he wns entirely Ignorant of the object
of their visit and also of the proposed
dismissal of Capt. Richardson until
that evening. He read letters and telegrams he had received from original
supporters of his and from the Q.W.V.
A., tactily accusing him of Inciting Ihe
action against Cupt. Richardson, and
ho proceeded to "read tellers from Dr.
Sutherland, Premier Oliver, and Ihe
Hon.-Win. Sloan, stating that Mr. Menzies had not heen consulted in the
matter and knew nothing of It until
notion bud boon taken,

Eloquent Address
By Mr. Macklin"
A joint meeting of the Cumberland
and tlie Courtonay-Coniox  Boards of
I'rade heard a very able address from
Mr.  W.  L,  Macklin, president of the
Associated  Hoards of Trade of B. C, ;
on Friday niglit in the G.W.V.A. Hall
in Cumberland,
Messrs. Mucinlyro, McLeod, Field,
Pearse,  Everett,  Eadie,  MacIMierson,
'igott. and Hughes wen; present from
Courtenay. The correspondence relative tit thf coaling of the Canadian
Freighter in B.C, waters with Japanese
< oal waa read as it appeared in the
House at   Ottawa—Mr. Tom Graham
aid that relative tu the statement that
Eug] oil was most economical, he had
just been talking to a representative
uf the Blue Funnel line owning 9!) liners, He hud told Mr. Graham that
they only had two oil burners at any
lime and one of these had been con-
^erted and the other was undergoing
the same progress. It seemed to him
.hat a firm so large as Alfred Holt and
•on would have a good reason before
'hey wouhl prefer to burn coal ou
iheir boats, Certainly the Canadian
government should bum coal on their
boats and he thought that, in future,
so thoroughly hud the desirability of
doing so beeu forced on them, they
would.
Musi Create New Wealth
In the course, of an eloquent address on the functions of the Boards
of Trade, Mr. Macklin said if they
wanted to win prosperity for B.C.
they must stem the tremendous tide
of business going out of the province
and create new wealth in soil, forest,
mine and stream. They had ln tho
province too many people living by the
mere excretes of their wits. In every
worth-while community, big or small,
there was a Board of Trade, and it
was or should he the business man's
parliament. To it should como all
classes of community questions and
it -should give them their support irrespective of party or creed, and on
their merits alone.
As to Cumberland, Mr. Mackln said
ho very much doubted If lite Canadian
government knew theVo was coal on
Vancouver Island until their attention
had recently beon called to ft. As
coal mining was their staple industry1
they should concentrate on tho selling
of it und seu that every channel wan
exploited, Mr. Mackln spoke of somo
of the functions of the Boards of Trade
stating his belief in ihe bureau syatem
where every man on tho board is on
some bureau. He hoped to see iho tiinu
when governments would naturally
turn to Boards of Trade for advice on
economic questions. Mr. MacUhi said
thai they were trying to provide a fund
whereby they could havo a permanent
official always attending to Associated
Hoard of Trade business.
At the conclusion of the meeting a
very hearty vote of thanks was passed to Mr. Mackln for his address on
the proposal of Mr. Harrison seconded by Mr. Colin Campbell.

The Women's Benefit Association of
Hie Maccabees fittingly honored
"Mothers' Day" when they gave
banquet and entertainment in G.W.V.

Whereas certain mischievously Inclined persona have tampered
with the valves of the mains of this company, thereby allowing

be prosecuted to the very fullest extent of the law.

"Transplanting a tree from one site
in another is a surgical operation during which the patient needs special
attention."
Spring planting should begin aa
,-con as possible after thc ground is
thawed out and dried sufficiently to
work the soil. It should not he attempted a:ter the buds begin to ope"..
it may be said In general that April
and early .May represent the proper
time for planting.
Look first for a tree that has a com
pact root system.. The more smal
roots a tree has, the greater II
chances of surviving the shock o
transplanting, and the more rapid wil
he Its growth. A treo with a larg
top and few roots will bo slow to e-
lablish itself and is apt to die.
Some roots are bound to be destroy
ed   in   the   transplanting   process   s
that it. is always necessary to prun
about one-flfth of tho branches. Prun
equally on all sides to retain the sym
[ metry of the tree.   All cuts should h
I made sharp aud clean.   Trim off with
j a smooth cut all broken and badly In-
j jured roots.   Make sure, however, no.
to cut off the loader of main stem when
pruning.
When trees are bought from a nursery they should be immediately unpacked, "puddled" and "heeled in" until ready to be taken up for planting.
Puddling means dipping the roots in
a mixture of clay and water about the
consistency of paint. Heeling in consists in digging a trench sufficiently
deep to contain the roots and then covering them in with a layer of moist
earth until you are ready to plant them
in their final position.
At no stage should tho roots of the
tree be allowed to become dry. This
is highly important. Many trees are
dead before they have been set in the
ground for lack of such precaution.
Make the hole in which the tree is to
e set considerably wider and deeper
than is necessary to accommodate ths
roots.    Before placing the  tree, the
hole should be partly filled with good
garden loam or the surplus soil which
iias been removed and set aside when
making the hole. Do not plant too
deep. Roots need air. Allow the
roots to spread naturally in the hole.
Do not bend or crumple them up. Bo
-ure that the earth is well packed aud
In contact with the roots.
lu setting'a tree care should he taken from the very start to see that the
stem is kept perfectly vertical. Any
attempt made to straighten it after the
planting is done is liable to injure tho
(roe and loosen the soil.
The Gladiator
Before the kitchen fire he stood,
Like a Gladiator hold.
Bereft of coat, aiyl vest, and shirt,
Although tho night was bleak and
cold,
The flickering firelight came and went
Making alternate light and shade.
And on his flesh as marble white.
Fantastic shadows lightly played;
And as he like a statue posed,
'[lis form displaying every grace,)
A look of anguish, pain and woe
Spread o'er his erstwhile kindly face;
Then lifting up his strong right arm
A backward movement with it made,
And with his mighty vie-like hand
.He   gripped  his   left   hand  shoulder
blade;
He writhed and swayed from right
to left.
His giant form was wrung with pain,
Six paces swift he forward went,
Then six paces back again,
No vulgar eye gazed on the scene
Xo voice the awful silence broke;
His teeth were clenched, his lips were
set,
But not one single word he spoke,
Fast down his brow the sweat drops
ran,
His eyes shot flames—those eyos so
black,
And then he cried,, "Oh, Mary Ann,'

Last year the price of forest fires to
llie people of British Columbia was
seventy million feet of timber, While
llie realities of a timber scarcity aro
being gravely faced by tlie people of
Eastern Canada and while tho possession of a splendid timber resource
is assuring British Columbia of a
great industrial future, with plenty
of employment, 308 parties of British
Columbia campers set at defiance the
interests of tiie province and the Dominion by starting disastrous (Ires
(luring the summer of 1921.
IS this record to lie repeated nd iu-
liniliim until the forest properties of
ihis Province are turned to charcoal?
Will another 308 parlies of campers
(luring the approaching summer make
I lie people of British Columbia pay for
llieir fun as they did a year ago?
Ill ttie ranks of professional guides
and sportsmen, it is everywhere regarded as amateurish and MiBports-J
manlike to leavo n camp lire burnlngj
when a party packs up and leaves. No
Boy Scout, for example, will ever
play careless' with any form of fire
while iu a forest, lt is against Boy
Scout ethics to be responsible for a
forest lire. The grown-up boy can
surely do as well. The following pre
cautions are exceedingly easy to observe:
Never build a campfirc against a tree
or an old log until you reach gravel,
or better still choose a rocky shore
or use a patent camp stovo. When
you nre finished witli Iho fire, put it
out. Put lt Dead Out. Use water or
earth, but leave nothing smoldering.
Never throw away lighted matches
or tobacco wlille in or near tho woods.
Vour cni'cles.-ness must be paid for at
a thousand per cent and British Columbia can't nfforil it Just now.

A MKNACK TO MOTORISTS
An automobile accident, which might
have had disastrous results oecured on
the Royston Road on Sunday evening
last, when a well known resident of
Cumberland was returning to town.
The accident referred to happened almost in front of Mr. Logan's place, who
amongst other things, keeps cows. One
of his animals was returning home, absolutely unattended, and when within
a few feet of the approaching car took
a notion for the centre of tlie road, the
driver could not help hitting bossy,
and before anyone could realize it, the
car was fairly in tlie ditch. It is a miracle that no one was hurt, but the carl
suffered to the extent of about $60, [
which includes a busted radiator, broken lamps and several other minor ac-1
cessories.
Owners of cows should not be allowed to have their animals roaming thei
highways at will, and as far as we can'^
learn the owner of the cow is liable,,
or should be, to Uie extent of the damage done.

built of logs, that stood facing the
present post office on Front Streot;
also the master who taught the curri-
cullum to all grades and accepted
pupils of all nationalities.
The modern .buildings, equipment
and systems of today compared with
conditions1 of '62, help to emphasize
the theory which sees in tho history
of all things a gradual advance. Perhaps no one will be better remembered by the folk who lived here in the
early days than Adam Henry Home,
who has occupied the position of postmaster since 1890, and has spent most
of his life In the city since 1878. He
is a son of the late A. G. Home, who
was numbered with the residents of
1859, and was at that lime second in
charge of the S.S. City of Nanaimo
which plied between Vancouver and
this port, known then ns Collvllle
Town, later on as the Hudson's Bay
Tost of Nanaimo; at a later date "Hudson's Bay Post" being eliminated.
Alongside the present post ddlce,
where but a few years ago a frame
building known as the court house
stood, was in the early days a scene
ot commercial activity. This site was
occupied hy a general store in '63, the
city's most important business house,
It differed entirely from the modern
type and was run and owned by Mr.
Home's father. Of groceries It had
a plentlous supply and the miner
could also purchase bis tobacco, shoes
and clothing. Piled on shelves were
quantities of smoked bacon, canned
goods nud blankets, shoe laces, pencils,
sweets and buttons and in fact almost
every staple necessity.
It was also thc post office and a
portion of the main floor was used
for a saloon, but the bar was under
different management.
That the location was considered
ideal to many of the hater's patrons
is borne out by tbe fact, thut a frequent sight on a summer's day was a
drunken man plunging Into tlie water
from the roar of the building, and not
long afterwards was able to again visit
the bar.
POBtmastor Home first entered tho
employ of the Government in 1883,
through recommendation of 1). W.
Gordonj M.P. Accountants wero not
plentiful in those days, and as Mr,
Home had thc necessary qualifications
he became manager of the Dominion
Savings Hank Department, which position he occupied for seven years.
Purl of the time he waa also Inspector
of Weights and Measures of tho Inland
RevofiUfl, While manager of the savings department ho presided over the
only bank in the district, and as the
Wellington mines were at their zenith,
the average miner had a big roll each
month with little opportunity to spend
it, and consequently the bank did a
flourishing business.
On certain days the miners came to
town on stages and lined up against
the counter in large numbers. The depositor would throw his money and
book on tbe counter ami the amount
would be entered, and thc money removed to a nearby table. Mr. Home's
only assistant was seated in front of
tho eager throng witli a loaded shot
gun to decide any disputes that arose
between intoxicated persons as to wliat
place they occupied in the line, but
the thought of a holdup never oecured
to anyone. In 1890 the savings department was transferred to the post office
savings hank and Mr. Home became
postmaster of the city. Me married
Emily Cooper iu 1881, whose father
Harry Cooper, still living in Los Angeles, brought the first (Watt) locomotive from England to be used by tbe
Vancouver Coal Company. .Mr. and
Mrs. Home now luive a family of seven children most of whom arc married ami living elsewhere. His sons
are Harry (1. Home, locomotive litter
for thc C.P.R., and Basil and Eric living al home. Mrs. Wilson Heaps of
Kerrisdaie, Vancouver and Miss Ernie
Home, in training in Rt. Paul's Hospital, are daughters; nlso Mrs. w.
Owen, (»f Cumberland, P. C, and Mrs.
W. Hell Henlhorington of Luscar, near
Alberta. Mr. Home, who has been
seriously ill for somo time, is su'-
liciently recovered to be back at his
desk again.

up to his side and shot hlin down like

"What's the matter you shoot me.
Wong O Sang?" the wounded mnn Is
alleged to have cried, and then came
Ihe dramatic struggle in tlie holtllght
ed store, following whicb Wong O

ed his life tbey could havo tttkoil It

Instead they did whal nny other law-
abiding citizen would do. tiny bound
him hand aud foot and handed bim
over to tbe law to deal with."
Concluding   Mr.   Macdonuld   urged
the jury (o give Wong O Sang tho benefit of every possible doubt but to
give also due consideration to the administration of Ibe law aud the protection of human life "God-given,
whether it js that of a white man or
a Chinaman."
"Consider the case carefully; weigli
all tho evidence," he said. "Deal with
it not in a sentimental or maudlin
manner, but as men in a world of
men."
Nils Erect iu Duck
During the addresses of counsel
Wong O Sang sat erect and alone iu
the prisoner's dock. Occasionally ho
swallowed nervously, but no sign o£
emotion crossed the sphinxlike mask
of the Oriental behind which he cloaked his real, feelings. He glanced uei-
ihcr to the right or left but watched
counsel carefully, lu the scats to tho
rear of him half a hundred equally
impassive Orientals were gathered. On
one side were the friends of the deceased. On the other the friends of tho
accused. Occasionally they looked at
him and whispered among thenmelves,
but no sign showed in tbe beady black
eyes or laces how ihey regarded tho
evidence or the addresses to the jury.
The jury returned al 5:50, after being
out for two hours, brought in a verdict
ii guilty. JudgevMurphy then passed
lonteuco of death on July 28th, 1W2.

"Empire Day" is gating to mean

the stupendous ta*k which develops
upon its governing bodies and the duties and responsibilities of its citizens.
The development of the various portions of the British Empire has been
regardsd as episodes grouping themselves l ind the central drama of do-
iz?;Llc ,-itory. Thia view has been
natural, but it needs supplemental
tc chlng. "What do they know of Eng

IT '-Ing—and a similar question might

every, component part of the great
British Empire.

Um best of a glorious heritage.
It is hard for ? busy man to devote
thi tired leavings nf his hard-wrought
day to thc study of imperial facts and
problems. But think! When tbe Brl-
■.on marks his ballot paper he has "a
say" in the government, the well-being
—or the reverse—of millions of his
fellow creatures.   The whole universe
is bound together. Nothing can happen in one place without affecting
"The Empire." "When you pluck a
.lower you disturb the star.-.," says a
philospher. You must learn something
of the Empire to be a good citizen of
..he smallest Canadian  town.

Bmpiro are bound up with the Inter

There is room in the British breast
t'or the largest patriotism. We love
our own province, our own town, our

llieir headquarters, as it would be hard
indeed to find a more suitable place.
Quite a number of boys have already been enrolled and It Is the intention of the association to try and
enroll all boys up to 18 years of age.
It is more than possible that the boys
will go into camp this summer, as the
officers are working hard to bring this
phase of tbe work to a success.

The Luck of Terence McGree
The otlier evening I entered a lounge
off Piccadilly Circus in ord.-r to as
suage a thirst which only an August
day In London can create. My throat
tingled, and I could simultaneously
taste dust, boiling tar, new paint and
gasolene.
The place was pretty crowded, and
my necessity for liquor too urgent to
permit of an exhaustive search for privacy, so I flopped down at a table near
by which was already occupied.
He wos a big man with red, flabby
cheeks and blue eyes sunk rather deep
lu his head. At one time he might have
been handsome, but his forty-odd yoars
—for 1 reckoned his age to be round
about there—had told, and there wasn't much beauty left In him. He was
dressed neatly and plainly in a dark
suit and a black tie, and on the little
ledge beneath the table he'd got a
bowler hat. I set him down to be a
City worker of the nihe-till-flve variety who drew his remuneration on the
twenty-fifth of each month.
In any case, he just sat there consuming proportionate mixtures of gin
and Italian vermouth.
After my third whiskey, I felt better
and more in a, mood for loquacity.
"Warm," I said, "even for August!"
He glanced casually over at me and
then nodded. "It's been a good summer so far," he replied. "I ought to
he down at the sea this month too, but
I can't manage it. Just my luck!" he
added with a note of bitterness.
"That's always the way," I said:
"your luck's either dead in or dead
out. I've found it like that, at least.
There are days when you can't go
wrong, try you ever so hard—just as
there are days when you can't go
right. Fortune's a woman—that may
account for it."
He wagged his head thoughtfully.
"Yes," he said:   "I found it that way
mostly. I think the majority of us
have. Luck never troubled him much,
for it was on his side day and night—
and as far as I know, it has never left
him. He simply couldn't do anything
wrong—or, if he did, then Luck just
stepped ln and, before he'd had time to
think, set things right again for him."
I scented a yarn, and I kept silent,
leaving him open to continue. He sipped his vermouth, and then leaned
back ln his chair.
"His name," he said, "waB Terence
McGree."
"Irish?" I asked.
"Half and half," was tho reply. "His
father was, and his mother an Englishwoman. We were at school together,
Terence and I, and even ln those early
days good fortune had singled him out
To begin with, he was handsome, and
had got the limbs and strength of a
Greek runner. When he laughed— and
he did most times—then you had to
laugh too. You couldn't help lt! He
never did any work—yet he got a hiding once in every eclipse of the moon,
whilst the rest of us, who did work,
would rather stand than sit for three
parts of each term.
"As an athletic, of course, he shone.
He was ln the fifteen, captained the
cricket eleven for us, swam like a flying llsh, and there was nothing ln a
gymnasium he couldn't do.
"Even in those days we were great
pals, Terence and I. We were totally
different in all things, but we clung
together like a newly-wed couple. And
after school days, we were just tbe
same good friends. He came ln for a
little money unexpectedly, and lived
on It; I was working for a newspaper
down ln Fleet Street, and still we
stuck together,
"Believe me, I had plenty of opportunity of watching it; and the luck of
that man gave Creation something to

British Columbia has more telephones to population than any other province of Canada. It
is to maintain this enviable record that extensions of outside plant and central office

think about! Everything he touched
went right, and they just wouldn't let
him bungle things, though he tried
hard and pretty often. It he'd ever
got turned up on a cannibal island,
within half-an-hour ot his being there
tbe cannibals would have been scrap
ping amongst themselves tor the privilege ot being roasted whole to afford
Terence McGree a meal! Giraffes
would have worn stiff collars In the
hot months in India If he'd asked them
to. He could stroll on to a race-course
and back a flfty-to-one chance ln a
big race—and you might be certain
that the outsider would bolt at the
gate and show the rest of the field
dust until he was past the winning
post! Children always wanted to
share their sweets with him; dogs
would crawl round him and lick the
blacking off his boots, tailors forget to
send him in their bills; and he was the
most satisfactory barometer any man
could desire. It you were going out
tor a picnic or something tn the open,
and you took Terence with you, then
you had as good as bought the sunshine and blue sky. It never rained
for him."
He paused in his narrative whilst
the waiter brought us fresh drinks, and
a cloud seemed to cover his heavy features as he resumed.
"Then ot course," he said, "when it
came to women, Terence McGree pulled the trigger on the bullseyc- every
time. Women flitted round him like
butterflies, they couldn't have enough
of him; they worshipped him! He didn't seem to worry over-much though.
He just smiled when he liked, and
took a kiss when he liked. It was all
so dead simple for him!"
Again he paused, and slowly sipped
his vermouth.
"But I'll cut all that short," he continued, "and tell you what I'm really
leading up to,
"In those days, when Terence and I
were knocking about together, at the
same time—at a dance it was—he and
I fell for a woman. She was a fine,
well-built girl, dark, with great big
eyes that held fire, and a way that was
all her own, I was ln love with her
from the first moment we waited together; and two days later I heard
Terence's version of her, and he was
as badly smitten as I was,
"She was the daughter of a doctor
out in Kensington, and there we used
to call on her, I eay 'we,' for I never
seemed to get there without finding
Terence had arrived before me—he'd
got more leisure time than I had—and
he'd been talking to her and making
her laugh. He scored a great deal in
that way—for if you can make
woman laugh, you can do most things
with her.
"Still, I hung on tight, and I did my
very best to get into that girl's favor.
Sometimes she'd come out with me—
unless Terence got ln flrst—and, all
things considered, I didn't do so badly. For several months the running
was pretty level, but the three of us
knew it couldn't go on like that much
longer. The girl wouldn't help us at
all, but she made tt quite clear tbat
either Terence or I would be thc lucky
one.
"Then one day he came to me and
he said:
" Look here, old man, things can't go
on like this! It's not fair to us, and
it's not altogether fair to Margaret. I
want to marry her—you want to marry
her. I've got a plan to settle things
once and for all. The income I'm
drawing Isn't enough to marry on, and
I know you're not much better off. Now
read that!"
"And he handed me a notice of a
Civil Service appointment commencing
at six hundred a year, to be awarded
after a public examination.
"It either ot us get that," he said,
"we'll be ln a position to marry. Suppose we have a shot at lt? We've got
three clear months ln whlcb to cram,
whoever gets the job—or the highest
place on the list—gets Margaret. Do
you agree?"
"Well, to me, It looked a walk-over,
for I had always studied hard, and
knew my knowledge wu three times
greater than Terence's.   I agreed.
"Believe me when I tell you I worked hard ln those three months! I
dinned Into me every blessed thing
that the syllabus demanded. Night and
day I waa at It, sitting up often until
three or four In the morning.
"Terence worked too—that Is at first.
The three of us met by arrangement
every Saturday, and neither of ua pushed ourselves with the girl very much,
for she understood the whole thing
and seemed perfectly satisfied to abide
by the result, but for every hour's
work that Terence did, I knew I was
doing four. He couldn't study, that
fellow. It wasn't in him! And as the
day of the exam got nearer and nearer,
so he seemed to do less and less work.
"I began to feel confident ot the result, yet I dreaded his Infernal luck. 1
knew that ln some way or other it
would crop up! It always has done,
and there wouldn't be any exception
this time.
"Then the flrst day of the examination came, and I knew I'd done pretty
well.   Terrence didn't say very much.

He only laughed and treated the thing
lightly, which was his way. So we sat
tor the different papers for three whole
days; and when lt was all over, I still
felt confident—ln fact, I rather fancied
my chances for the job!"
He paused and looked steadily at me,
then resumed with growing earnestness.
"It was a fortnight before the results
came out, and the time was hell, it
dragged so—and my nerves were getting bad. At last the time came, and 1
was up and out and had bought a copy
ot The Telegraph by six o'clock. I
remember how my hands shook as I
opened lt, and how I was feeling ln
my heart.
"Then I let out a yelp of joy. I had
come out top! The job was mine. The
girl was mine. I searched the list, and
eventually found Terrence's about two
from tbe bottom. He'd been ploughed
terribly! He was cut up, too, when
he got the result."
And—?" I asked.
"Oh," said the stranger quietly—
though I saw how hard he gripped the
stem of his glass—"I—I married her
all right. We've been married a long
time now—on and off . . . You—you
can never tell how women are going to
turn out"
He rose from his seat.
"You know," he Bald, "somehow, they
never meant to let Terence McGree
make a mistake!"
It has been stated by a French scientist that the sound of your voice or
your violin reached the sun by radiophone at eight minutes, and the planet Jupiter In twenty seven minutes. Or
supposing that the inhabitants of the
planet Mars had receiving apparatus
they could hear your voice in three or
four minutes. It seems Incredible,
and yet we become so accustomed to
hearing of the marvels of science that
we hardly "bat an eye" as It were,
when we see them demonstrated.

Gratifying Results From The Poultry
Record of Performance Established
In 1919
The Old People's Hume at Vancouver,:
B.C., goes in heavily for poultry keeping, as Is proven by the tact that He-
port No. 2 of the Record of Performance in egg-laying, conducted by the
Poultry Division of the Dominion Live
Stock Branch, shows a list of 124 Leghorns at ihat Institution to which certificates were accorded for laying 160
eggs and upwards in 52 consecutive
weeks, and 15 to which advanced certificates were granted for laying up-
wards of 225 eggs In the same period,
tbe highest being 2!I7 and the second
274, both constituting records in the
Proviuco for Leghorns. A private
breeder at Victoria, B.C., can claim
thc record of production for While
Wyandottes, two producing 271 cges
each and one 284 in the specified lime
Taking the records by provinces Brit
Ish Columbia comes lirst with lit! advanced Leghorns averaging 238.32 eggs
per bird, 42 Wyandottes averaging
242.17 per bird and 25 Plymouth Rooko
averaging 241.17 per bird; Ontario second with 44 advanced Leghorns averaging 245 eggs per bird, 27 Plymouth

lon started keeping the records in
1910, when 67 breeders entered 4,430
birds, which numbers increased in
1020 to 81 breeders and 7,511 birds. The
