Kootenay Fruit Lands as
Seen by Outsider
Correspondent of Manitoba Free Press
Describes Tour Through Nelson Orchard District.
"A. L. S." writes from Nelson, 13. C,
to the Winnipeg Free Press us follows:
What is the Nelson district? Is It a
fruit or mining area? The horticulturist says he came to the rescue, when
Ule mining ventures mlscurrled, und
helped the country out or its dilflcultles.
The mining man will say thut It is not
u fruit, but a mining country. What
land there Is is good, but there is not
enough of it. The horticulturist will
hold the contrary view. He bus knowledge to discern lakes and rivers, which,
to tho exploiter of mineral wealth, are
mere entuglements of shrubs und trees
or wilderness of boulder. Borne of this
stony ground will raise excellent orchards, conceive and bring forth multitudes of fat strawberries, bloated gooseberries, almost bursting with Juice; and
grapes, mellowed by the sun into deep
purple as the fingers of tbe vine feel
among the loose rock. It is true thut
some rascally people tried to sell mountain tops, but they were detected, and
citizens of note are doing their utmost
to prevent anything of the kind being
again wit upon the market, which
would, of course, bring the whole business into disrepute und delay the legitimate development of the industry.
There Is plenty of land in tHe market,
without purchasers being directed lo
worthless mountain summits which take
half u .lay to scuie and half an hour to
come down.
Nature, long ago, earmarked the country for fruit-growing. Wild strawberries, currants, gooseberries, raspberries,
c-berries, nuts, apples nnd plum., are native to the soil. Anyone can find un
ubundnnce of them on his rambles iu
tlie woods. Indeed you get rather tired
of the prevalence of the small white
bloom gf tbe humble strawberry, which
edges every truck, and the tangle of tbe
raspberry bushes.

two stations from the Banding. The Inhabitants have greut faith in their climate und soil, aud u good lady nearly
made the writer miss his train In showing him the exquisite blooms wgich her
trees displayed. This was, of course, a
month ago. The fruits are now appearing. The natural pride of the enthusiastic lady was not misplaced. Her trees
made a charming picture, the falling
blossoms beneath the branches being
like drifts of snow. The hillside is open
to the aouth and receives the full flush
of tho sun. which sets in gorgeous col-
orB over the far-stretching mountains,
whose white summits mingle with the
clouds, and plays about the face of the
Kootenay river, making it blush and
mantle Into a deep red, then turn opaline, and fade into a light Inrquoise
shade. No more picturesque s]iot can
ho found on tbe eustern side of the
lnke; nnd, with the attention that Is being paid lo it at the present time, It
will become a BCene of choice homes
and happy industry.
It Is some time since O. J. Wlgen's
strawberries made the locullty famous
and to tho residents, any stranger who
has not honrd of his attainments In this
class of culture Is au ignoramua.
The next place worthy or note Is llos-
well. Here Lord Howlck's ranch Is situated, it comprises 7.1 acres, which u
part or a 129-acre lot. which was one of
the first preemptions taken up In the
Kootenay. D. C. McGregor, of Trail,
hud the pre-emption, and J. Johnstone,
president or the Hritlsh Columbia Fruit
Orowers' Association, nrterwurds bought
It, selling the piece mentioned lo tho
governor general's son when tho viceregal party visited the province last autumn. The orohurd Is nicely equipped
Firteen acres have been planted, the
apple trees Including yellow Newton
pippins. Cox's orange pippins, Spltzen-
berg nnd Northern Spys, and other special varieties. Many ol them are eight
nnd nine years old, and are bearing prodigiously. A Swiss nnmed William Gen-
ol under tho superintendence or Mr.
Johnstone, looks after tho orchard, and
the remainder or the 78 ncres will be
gradually brought under cultivation
This year three ucres have been planted
with strawberries. In the lungunge of

An excursion  up Hie luke   in  one of
1 the C. P. ll.'s excellent stentnhouts gives
an entirely Inadequate Idea or the extent of the work thut is going on, and
the suitability of the land tor cultivation. I had a personal experience which
illustrates this. I happened to descry
a ranch Irom a distance, and was told
wonderful things about It. Wben I visited the place I realized that my Informant had not exaggerated. Cberry
trees were beginning to sag und droop
with their burdens or incipient fruit.
Here and there I noticed strong Iron
braces, keeping the limbs Irom parting
with the trunk, the apple branches
swayed heavily, and the straight upward branches ol the pear were not
quite so heavenly In their tendency. An
apjietlte began to^grow within me which
I fear Is not destined to be satisfied.
For I shall be otherwise when the luscious fruit commences to rail; by motitb
will not be there to catch the swollen
cherries; I shall not be swinging in the
hummock in the shade.
Handles exist along both shores oi

and they ure also scattered down the
west arm of the Kootenuy, Procter and
Nelson being the principal points. Orchards made and in the making appear
through the brushwood along tlie banks
or tbe Kootenay river until it joins the
Columbia; und thence away up the long
and narrow shores of tbe Arrow lakes,
almost us fur north us Revelstoke.
The country Is going uheud. Settlers
ure coming iu every week, und the inquiries are legion. But some ol the old
Dutch uncles or tbe place hurdly appreciate the new spirit, and are somewhat
jealous of the success of comparatively
newcomers. Nelson Is as yet divided in
opinion an to whether life is an Indolent
game of tennis or an occasion of strenuous endeavor to accomplish great
things which will lead to fortune, and
(what Ib lost sight of generally, is more
important, and often incidental) create
sources or livelihood and public wealth

who will amplify und crown the efforts

and social atmosphere, which will conduce to the happiness of a stable community.
I have no doubt, however, thut the
bustlers will curry- public opinion; and
while conceding something to the sentiment ot having a "good time." Infuse

The competition ror land Is already
causing #uiuili property to come into
the market. The prices obtulned being
high, there Is a tendency to sub-divide
Iota, end this will result in the available land being put to Its fullest use.
The culUvation will be intensive. Some
places are being cut up Into five-acre
lots and less. A notable class of the
new settlers Is that or the northwest
farmer ,who, having spent his vigorous
years on the prairie and accumulated
enough to retire is seeking a genial
climate and a light occupation which
will keep his muscles from stiffening.
He finds an Ideal location In the Kootenay. He has. besides, an oul-of-door occupation, the additional salt of an oc-

Mark Twain at Home.
London, July 10.���The stalt of Punch
entertained Samuel L. Clemens tMark
Twainl at dinner last night. The guests
sat down to the famous dining room
table, which is carved all over with the
initials of generations of the most famous of British writers. A pleasing Incident of the evening was the presentation to Mr. Clemens by little girls, of
the framed original or a cartoon which
recently appeared In Punch in which
"Punch" is portrayed offering a toast
to Mr. Clemens.
Influx  Into British  Columbia  Explained
at Ottawa���Wanted by G. T.P.
Ottawa. July 10.���Asked as to the irruption or Japanese into llrltlsh Columbia, the authorities at the immigration
department staled thut they had no ol-
flclal advices on the subject, but lhat
they were not surprised, lor il had been
expected for some time that such nn Influx would take place. There Is no law
on the statute book to prevent such immigration. The Hritlsh Columbia legislature last session, after Mr. McUride's
departure for lOnglnnd. pussed the bill
which seeks lo prevent the Japanese
from working In the mines. That bill
Is now before the Dominion government, and probably will bo vetoed for
Imperial reasons. It is understood, however, that these Japanese Incomers will
be used on the Puciflc section of the
Grand Trunk Paclllc. thus solving the
problem of securing nuvvlcs. II will

Delegates at Hague Think
Only of War
Reported on High Authority That Japan Threatens to Deal Directly With California.
London, July 10.���The correspondent
of the Dally Telegraph at The Hague
sends in a column despatch which purports to reflect the views prevailing
there on the Japanese-American situation which he declares to be more absorbing than the conference itself. The
correspondent says that as a result ot
his inquiries he learns the situation Is
really strained, although both governments are trying to conceal the fact. He
asserts that since Juue 20th the question has entered upon an acute phase.
Japan has been sending the United
States extremely categorical notes
stating without bitterness but in the
clearest terms the dilemma, that unless
Washington is able to control California, Japan will consider herself free to
act directly against California. Nothing, however, yet has been exchanged
precluding a pacific settlement, but
many of the Japanese at The Hague
are of the opinion that the Japanese
government ought to act without delay
and not give America time to utilize her
vast resources and economic potentialities, a hundred fold greater than Japan's,   to   perfect  warlike   preparations.
In an editorial article the Telegraph
says it does not identify itself with tbe
statements of its correspondent at The
Hague, believing them to be charged
with undue despondency. At the same
time, the paper continues, they are
made up on a notable authority, and
they cannot be read without a profound
uneasiness. The Telegraph Is convinced, however, that the statesmanship
of both countries will be strong enough
aud the quiescence of the two great nations sane enough to hold mad chauvinism in leash.
"Nevertheless," he paper declares, "It
Is impossible to deny the danger of the*
situation. The present peace conference from its opening has created disagreement mud frlctiun Lending tu make
worse instead of improving the relations of the powers. The last assembly
at The Hague was followed by great
conflicts, and we can only pray that
the present one may not be suc^eded
by   more terrible  calamities."     ���
In conclusion, after a full discussion
of the points of difference, the Telegraph declares it is not a color question but fundamentally an economic
question. It says further: "We trust
our allies will take a thought and realize that the point of national honor has
been accidentally bound up with the
problem but Is not permanently involved in it. Any attempt to settle the
question by arms, whatever the immediate Issue would mean, sooner or later,
a hundred years* conflict."
Annual International Convention of Endeavor Society.
Seattle, July 10.���With an attendance
thut fulfllU the most sanguine expectations, the twenty-third international convention of the Christian Endeavor Society began in Seattle today.
During the early hours receptions and
rallies were held at different State headquarters. This afternoon, :it the Hotel

Sir George Corrie Bird. British Veteran,
Accused of Embezzlement.
London, July 10.���Gen. Sir George
Corrie Bird, K.C. I.E., C. B., Indian
Army (retired), was charged in the
Lambeth police court yesterday with
converting to his own use $573 belonging to an army and navy charity. He
was remanded under ball.
The general, who is known to have
been in financial difficulties of late, had
a long and distinguished military career, and his arrest was a great surprise. He was born Ir 1838, entered
the Indian Army in 1855, served in
numerous wars and expeditions, including the Mutiny, and was mentioned in
the despatches more than once. He
commanded the Oudh district and the
Punjab frontier force. He is a member
of the Junior Army and Navy Club.
Probably Demented.
Holyhead, July 10.���Plain clothes officers who are accompanying King Edward and Queen Alexandra on their
tour of Wales, took a suspiciously acting individual into custody this afternoon. The man had hidden in the bushes alongside the approach to the residence of Sir Richard Bulkeley. Tho

Delegate* at Hague Say any Protest by
Emperor Would Lead to Hit
The Hague, July 10.���=The members
of the Korean delegation here say they
consider it quite natural that the Emperor of Korea should have officially
repudiated them in the Interview with
the Marquis Ito, the representative of
Japan at Seoul, who questioned him on
the subject of their mission, adding.:
"To have admitted that he instructed
us to represent him at the Hague would
perhaps mean his being dethroned or
even murdered." The delegates suggest that if the United States or a
European power had a similar inquiry
of the Korean emperor the answer
would have been different.
To keep order and assure maintenance of peace in the Far East, the
United States and the European powers,
the Koreans add, should uphold the independence of Korea, by declaring that
country to be a neutral state.
Eclipse of the Sun
Washington, July 10.���An annular
eclipse of the sun takes place today, but
the inhabitants of North America will
not be able to see it It will be visible,
however, over the whole of South America and a portion of the southwestern
coast of Africa. Observations will be
taken by the Lowell expedition, headed
by Professor Todd, of Amhert college,
which is now encamped in the high deserts of northern Chile. Photographs
will be taken with the aid of a mammoth telescope and an especially constructed camera. When these photographs are developed It Is possible that
a new light may bo thrown on several
questions concerning the sun that have
long puzzled  the scientific world.
Pacific Coast Nurserymen
Salem. Ore., July 10.���A large number of horticulturists and growers of
babv trees were present today at the
oppentug of the annual convention of
the Pacific Coast Association of Nurserymen. The initial session was held
this afternoon and was devoted chiefly
to the exchange of greetings. The convention will be in session three days,
during which time there will be papers
and discussions dealing with every
phase of the fruit-growing industry in
Washington, Oregon and California. In
conjunction with the meeting there Is
being held an elaborate display of orchard products.

Battleships Bigger Than
Enormous Sum Required for Fleet-
Armour and Gum Heavier
Than British Ship's.
Rome, July 10.���The Italian Admiralty has drawn up a bill asking foi- credit
to the extent ol $40,000,000 for the con-
struction of four new battleships, loosely described as Dreadnaoghts. There
is good reason, however, to believe that
the vessels about to be commenced will
be a considerable advance on the British ship.
Their design is due to the famous
chief constructor of the Italian navy,
Colonel Cunibertl.
The calibre of the guns is believed to
be 13.5 Inches, the weight of the sbot
fired from each gun being 1,200 pounds,
as compared with 850 pounds of the
Dreadnaught's weapons. The Italian
vessel is to carry eight of these guns,
"so arranged as to obtain tne iullest
efficiency possible from them."
The main armament will be arranged
in the same way as that of the new
British cruisers of the Inflexible class.
There will be four turrets, one at each
corner of a rhombus, two being on the
centre line of the ship and one on
either broadside, one near the fore and
one near the after centre line turret.
In this way It is possittle for all the
guns to be brought to bear on either
broadside, and six ahead or astern.
The gun efficiency, with eight weapons arranged in this way, is the same
as that obtained with ten mounted as
in the Dreadnaught, apart altogether
from the superior power of the 13.5
Inch weapon over the 12 Inch.
The speed of the new ships Is to be
in excess of that of the latest Italian
battleships' now building, which is
twenty-two knots, and they are to have
a complete belt of nearly uniform thickness. In each of these respects they
will mark a considerable improvement
on the Dreadnaught, and they will cost
11.250,000 more than that ship.
Girl   Tried   to   Stop   Disturbance���One
Man Killed.
Worcester, Mass., July 10.���The state
police at the end of a IU hours' investigation into the death of Charles L. Bur-
nup, an employee of the Edgemere
hotel, Shrewsbury, who was shot and
killed at an early hour Tuesday morning near his place of employment, arrested Mary Brennan, of Worcester,
aged 21, on a charge of manslaughter
early this morning. The officers Bay
that the girl confessed that she did the
shooting. She said that Burnup and
George Whitney, also an employee at
the Edgemere hotel, called uyon her at
her boarding place, the Lny i-ond
house, a resort near the other hotel.
They became noisy and the two men
were ordered from the house. The girl
further said that they created a disturbance on the outside of the building
and that she fired three or four shots
for the purpose of scarini? them. Burnup fell, but Whitney, who was apparently uninjured, escaped.
After Meat Packers.
Ottawa, July 10.���Circulars have been
sent out by the deputy minister of , hitI-
culture convening a meeting of Canadian meat packers, to be beld here July
17th. The convention has been called
for the purpose of discussing regulations drafted under the Meat and
Canned Food Inspection Act which was
passed at the last session of parliament,
and which goes into operation on September 3. The meeting on the 17th
will be conllned to meat packers and
transportation companies. Later there
will be a similar meeting of canners of
fruit, vegetables and flsh and other articles affected by the act.
Condemns Acetylene.
Ottawa, July 10.���The Railway Commission has concluded that It would not
be proper at present to insist on the
use of electricity In passenger cars, but
that It Is time to prohibit the use of
free acetylene. Railways will be allowed their choice between Plntsch gas and
what is termed commercial acetylene,
I.e., acetylene so stored between layers
of asbestos as not to allow more than a
fraction of the whole bulk to be exposed to Ignition. There will bo ollirr '
regulations, including one to prohibit
the use of lignite, a fruitful source of
complaint In the went, where half-consumed and smouldurlug frattnunt.-i often

Wednesday,   July   10th,   1907.
The Victoria Times and u few other
Liberal papers in British Columbia persist in proclaiming that Premier Mo-
Bride's mission to London was a failure,
and that the verbal changes in the
amendment lie secured are of uu value
or significance. As we have already
pointed out such a atatment Implies the
charge that Sir Wilfrid Laurier, pre*
sumably as advised by Mr. Aylesworth.
inserted in tlie amendment for which
he was petitioning an utterly meaning-
less   phrase.
Hut the Times goes on to say: "II
was perfectly well understood when Mr.
McHride left for London that he hoped
to induce the British government to ap
point a court of arbitration to sit upon
the case."
That statement has at hast the merit
of novelty. It had not occurred to any
intelligent people but possibly some
simple-minded innocents may have so
understood. For the British parliament
to appoint a court of arbitration to sit
on the matter in dispute between thi
government of the Dominion of Canada
and one of the provinces, or even to
suggest that they arrange for arbitration, would have been an invasion of
the rights of self-governing colonies to
manage their strictl> domestic affairs
Buch as not been attempted by the colonial office for more than half a century.
The most that any rational British
Columbian hoped for was that the colonial secretary might hove advised the
British parliament not to amend the British North America Act as petitioned to
do until the request was unanimous. In
deed, had Lord BUgin and Mr. Churchill
taken that view, the matter would probably never have 'reached the British
House of Commons.
That such a course was considered ie
plainly intimated in the speech of Mr.
Churchill on introducing the amendment. He said clearly that it must not
be understood that in any conflict between a federal and a provincial government, the federal view was always
to prevail. But he took the view that
as the population of British Columbia
is so small a proportion of the total
population of Canada, and , aa far as
British ministers were in a position to
know, the rest of the Dominion was a
unit in asking for the amendment, the
request was so nearly unanimous that
he felt it must he granted. It was Lord
Elgin and Mr. Churchill, not Mr. McHride, who first assigned as a reason
for omitting the "final and unalterable'
phrase, their intention to leave the door
open for future negotiations between
the province and the Dominion. To say
now that such a contention is absurd
is to reflect only indirectly upon our
own premier, but directly upon two
members of the British cabinet, the two
through whom alone all the colonies
can approach the Imperial government
and   parliament.
The Times has one more Illusion
"If he Is going to fight he must fight
with the provinces���etc." That is mere
Childish nonsense. The conference of
provincMil premiers was arranged by
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, managed by Mr.
Fielding and the conclusion obtained
was acted upon by the Dominion government, British Columbia has no relations with any other province except
through the Dominion parliament. At
tliat conference each provincial leader
was there to get the best terms he
could for his own people, it is not the
duty of any of the provincial premiers,
from Nova Scotia to Alberta, to be familiar with the conditions and requirements of British Columbia, but ft is the
duty of the Dominion ministers.
The Times' argument is consistent
with the whole treatment of this question by the Liberal party of British Columbia, it consists of petty, quibbling,
carping criticism, meaningless but mischievous, of the kind that prevented
Premier McBrlde from presenting the
protest   of   a   unanimous   people.
In an interview accorded The Daily
Canadian Monday evening William
Whyte, second vice-president of the
C. P. K. company, spoke of Bpecial arrangements to be made in the near fu
ture for handling the fruit grown in
British Columbia. It is obvious, of
course, that prompt transportation in
ventilated cars is essential for the successful marketing of perishable fruit.
Such  conditions,  Wr.  Whyte says,  will
be    provided    for.
The fruit growers themselves have already organized an exchange to handle
all the product available for export
from the province. The benefits of such
an organization will be tested this fall
when the apples, the staple of the fruitgrowing Industry, are ready for marketing. Hereafter the same benefit will
be obtained in connection with the export of the early small  fruit.
The fruit growers of British Columbia
should aim at competing with all others
at kast as far east as Winnipeg. But
between Winnipeg and the Rockies
there is already a large and prosperous
population, and it Is growing faster than
British Columbia's. That market belongs naturally to this province, and
cun only be lost by the neglect or failure of our own fruit growers to supply
its   growing   needs  satisfactorily.
There is still room in Kootenay for
thousands of fruit growers more than
are here already. The most effective
means of attracting more is by producing fruit that will gain and keep control
of the natural markets. The best possible advertisement is the evidence of
success and  prosperity.
The possibility of a conflict between
Japan and the United States, however
remote, raises a question of such vast
importance as to engage the eager attention of the whole civilized world.
The United Stutes has already been
forced to abandon its attitude of isolation. Circumstances have compelled it
to become a world power, and its statesmen are evidently quite conscious of the
responsibilities Involved iu the position.
That American statesmen do not despise Japan Is evident from the prompt
decision to prepare their Pacific coast
for defence and offence. At the same
time the wisest men in both countries
are calmly endeavoring to restore good
relations. It would be absurd, as well
as disastrous, if a war between two
great nations should be caused by the
race prejudices of a band of hoodlums
in the worst governed city on earth.
There Is more good intention than Intelligence In our local contemporary's
suggestion that the council and board
of school trustees get together and effect a sale of the debentures. The sale
of debentures is one of the functions of
the city council. it is hardly likely
that an attempt by the school trustees
to dictate to the council on that matter.
or meddle with it in any way, would
conduce to harmony. The only hope
lies in a gradual enlightenment of those
concerned on the legal rights, duties
and  relations of the two bodies.

Some time later an Indian, acting
upon his own authority, informed a certain person in Calgary that the Indiana

department set to work to act upon

seemed to be Indisposed to part with
any of their reserve.
Hut the Indians are very much Interested In the coming of Ihe HuffaWi.
When ihe matter was referred to Hull-
head, who Is now over 80 years of age.
he was a great buffalo hunter in bis
younger days, and said that be would
like to see the buffalo again. "I would
be a young man once more.*"
The flrst suggestion that the buffalo
be turned loose on the reserve Is believed to be quite impracticable. The
buffalo could not be cared for. and
would greatly Interfere with the rattle.
However, the better plan. It is thought,
is to have a portion of the reserve
fenced off. Iu this way the reserve
would accommodate about 100 buffalo
ur perhaps a few more. This pari of
the reserve Is only about four miles
from the centre of the city. When
tbe street railway Is built It would be
right at the outskirts of the city. It
is believed that this would be a nucleus for a very Interesting park, and
that other animals could be placed In
the same place.  ^^^

4. A. Sullivan, Ageut,
that the   man  she  married  was  Beres-
The story tfoes back to a period over
twenty years ago, when Heretsford first
came to this country. In St. Catharines, Ottawa and other places he cut
a guy dash In society tmder an assumed
name. She was a pretty lass in her
teens, and Heresford found her charming. They were married by a Methodist
minister, and for two weeks their life
was apparently a happy one. Hut it Is
said that Heresford soon tired of his
toy. He dlsgappeared utterly, and the
girl wife was left to make her living as
best she could. She took in sewing, and
apparently succeeded fairly well in this
tine, for she finally owned a little property which, though not iarge, was a
tribute to her industry. Years went by,
and the girl's early romance became
more and more of a dream. Other interests carne into her life and a new
love. For years she felt that she could
not marry, but as time went on she
sought advice. She went to her pastor,
a Baptist minister, and also to the young
man of her choice. The case was a
somewhat puzzling one. Betesford hud
been gone for half a dozen years. A man
who is absent seven years under certain circumstances may be legally supposed to be dead. The minister proceeded to make inquiries.
When Beresford had been gone eight
years the minister advised the two members of his flock that they had better
marry. There was a possibility of the
titled foreigner's return but it seemed
slim. A letter to his brother, the admiral, had been unanswered, and no one
seemed to know of his whereabouts.
Possibly he was dead. As a matter of
fact, of course Beresford died only last
December when he was killed in a railway wreck. That fact, however, does
not in the least affect the Ontario woman's title. She is still his widow for
all legal purposes. She is also the wife
of a well-to-do railway man, for the two
took their pastor's advice.

An Outside Opinion.
H. W. Kent, of Vancouver, who. for
the past 10 years has been secretary-
treasurer of tbe .North Pacific Minateiir
Association of Oarsmeu, in a private
letter to a friend iu Nelson, has the following to say of the Nelson crew: "I
was at Seattle for the regatta. The
Nelson junior crew won a good race
and deserved credit. They rowed in
good form and were, I think, the best-
looking crew in the water."
Locked Up.
If .J. Fred Hume liad not rendered
timely assistance, James McPhee, Nelson's commissioner to the Winnipeg
exhibition, would not have been able to
start for his destination this D >rning.
Last evening Mr. McPhee, in company
with a friend, went down to his boat-
house to attend to some matters before
he took his departure. The friend left
tbe boalhouso and forgetting all about
Mr. McPhee's presence locked the door.
When it came time to leave Mr. McPhee
found that he was locked in. For several hours he shouted for assistance,
but no one came to his aid. He had
just about yelled himself hoarse, and
given up all hope of being able to catch
his boat, when in desperation he gave
one more shout. This time J. Fred
Hume happened to be crossing to his
home on the other side of the lake.
Ha beard the call for assistance, and
quickly rowed Dncn to tne Doatnouse
and found Mr. McPhee completely prostrated, and with only enough energy
left to explain his condition and express
a few remarks as to his opinion of the
man who locked him up. Mr. Hume
rowed around to the back of the boat-
house and succeeded in getting an opening in the building large enough for
Mr. McPhee to make his escape. The
latter went aboard his boat, but he will
not forgot his two hours' experience in
the boathouse for some time.
These are two articles that are always getting broken and needing to be
If you don't need any now, it Is worth
