The B. C. and Pacific Coast field
trials were held on the Delta this
week and quite a number of devotees
of the sport have been in attendance
from all parts of the coast, from as
far south as Sacremento and from as
far east as Winnipeg. There are good
"sports," the ladies and gentlemen
who come here every year for the
Held trlalr, and ln their several visits
to the Delta have made many friends.
The trials have been very successful, both ln point of numbers and
the class of dogs entered. The handlers Included all of the best on thc
coast and numibered six, among them
being Mr. W. E. Coutts, who has a
number of California dogs: Mr. J. E\
Lucas, who ran Mr. Considine's dogs
and also one or two for California
sportsmen. Mr. J. A. Munger was in
charge of those from Oregon and Mr.
Chas. Coutts was in charge of a large
string belonging to a number of
Washington and Brffish Columbia followers of  the  field   trial games.
Mr. Chas. Hansen was on hand for
the first time in several years with
several Washington dogs. Mr. D. G.
Maedonell ran and handled a number
of Ids own dogs both In the all-age
and Derby stake. Mr. W. C. Lee, of
Winnipeg, judged the starters in the
P .'. Trials and in the Pacific Coast
trla's Mr. J. A. Baiamer, of Seattle.
Tho Derby and the championship and
nv mbership stakes are being run off
TiiT' were quite a number of spectators in attendance, including 'thM
Mr. and Airs. W. E. Burns, Mr. and
Mrs. John Burns and Jack Burns, Mr.
II. Abbott. Mr. T. W. Williams, Mr.
Hutchings, Mr. Chas. Howton, Mr.

Fulton, of Victoria, and Dr. and Mrs.
Meyer, Mr. J. W. Considinc, Mr. Up-
dyke, of Seattle, and Mr. and Mrs. R.
Dunn  Victoria.
The sports have been the most successful in the history of the trials.
In the opening days, birds were
scarce, but this condition improved
as the week progressed. Those participating were, extremely grateful to
the Delta farmers for the privileges
extended to them and have only the
highest praise for the general attitude of Delta residents towards the
question  of game  preservation.
Mr.   David  McKee,   of    Delta,     the
Buyer, Will  Dyke the Land,
Which is Very    R:ch.
Mr. David McKee, of the Delta,
was one of the principals In a big
real estate deal, which was effected
at New Westminster last week,
whereby Mr. McKee purchased 793
acres on Barnston Island from Mr.
Charnley and Mr. Harrison. Some
120 acres on the same Island was
also bought ,by Mr. Cameron, of
Sapper con, from Mr. O'Bryne. The
price for the two pieces of land is
said to be In the neghborhood of
$62,COO. Mr. McKee secured the
greater part of the property from Mr.
Charnley. Barnston Island is in
the Fraser opposite Port Kells. The
land is splendid ground in eveiy way
and as it will probably be dyked it
should prove a very prof table venture whether It is held for speculation or cultivated. Those who have
seen the land say that there is no
better  ground  anywhere.

At the semi-annual meeting of the
Lower Mainland Milk and Cream
Shippers' Association in the Board of
Trade room, Westminster, a lengthy
and important discussion took place
on the question of the price of milk
and cream for the winter months and
on the relations existing between the
ranchers the wholesalers and the retailers. It was decided that the prices
of milk and 25 per cent, cream for
the milk shipper in Vancouver should
be 2-2% cents and $1.30 per gallon
respectively for the winter months
This is an increase of 2*<j cents per
gallon on milk and 20 cents per gallon on cream over the present prices,
Considerable discussion took place
on the prices. It was pointed out that
feed was higher and general expenses
greater than In the summer and that
the quality of milk from grain fed
cows was better. It was felt that
there should be an increase in the
charges for milk and cream. It was
not a question of what the people in
the cities could afford to pay, but
what the farmer and rancher could
afford to sell their milk at in order
to make expenses and a fair profit.
The retailers present thought that
10 cents per quart was about all that
the consume" could be charged for
milk. The winter price will continue
until. May 1,  1910.
The  queotion    of    bi-monthly   payments   to   milk     shippers    for     their
milk caused some discussion.    It was
pointed   out   that   many   of   the  milk
shippers in   the  past  had  lost  money
through  the  failure of wholesalers in
Vancouver     who     had    assigned  at  a
'lime   when   they    owed    considerable
(money   to   the   farmer.        It   was   felt
i that the Institution of the bi-monthly
! payments would lessen the chances of
j any serious losses    In this way.    The
I suggestion   was   finally   adopted    and
I the pre=ident  and   secretary were  Instructed   to   take  it  up  wdth  the  various   wholesalers  In   an   effort   to  hive

It was a sad day for Emery Rlatch-
ford wbeu I'aiinie Ellsmere told biin
that she wns engaged to Tom Edwards. And tbe girl who bad cboseu
between these two'young men did not
choose wisely. Edwards never got on,
while Blatebford, having one of those
cheery dispositions that win people
continually, found friends to drop
plums into his mouth. And so it happened thnt while the former was
spending what little his wife bud
when he married her tbe latter wus
One year when the fall elections
came round Ihe managers of tbe party
in power, fearing they would lose the
light, looked about for candidates who
would be especially acceptable to tbe
people. Among those they selected
was Emery lilatcliford. who was put
up for sheriff and elected by nu overwhelming majority.
Now. It happened thnt a year before
this election Edwards bud died, leaving his widow not only penniless, but
with a chattel mortgage oo her household effects, for tbe payment of even
the Interest ou which there were no
funds. One of the flrst duties devolving upon the uewly elected sheriff
wus the serving of n writ upon Mrs.
Edwards, which would deprive her of
her only remaining possession, her
furniture. When Blatebford came
across this paper he slgbed. put it
ln ii pigeonhole, where. If he had bad
the power to keep It there. It would
have remained till the crack of doom.
Indeed he paid uo further attention to
it till the plaintiff in the ease made
such an ado about the delay Unit the
sheriff was obliged to serve the writ.
He gave the paper to a deputy, but
before the man had renched the door
called him back. lie couldn't bear
that lhe unwelcome process should be
enacted without being softened so far
ns possible. And to whom could he
trust such softening but himself? Putting the document Into his pocket, ho
waited till after office hours���Indeed,
till a proper hour for calling iu the
evening, then went to the widow's cottage, lie was received wilh some surprise. When he had last visited Mrs.
Edwards she was Miss Ellsmere and
bad told him I hat she was engaged lo
his rival. Blatebford beat about the
I bush for nn hour before he could
j bring himself to mention the nil Important subject.   They he said:
"I presume you know that Judgment
has been entered against you in the
matter of the notes secured by chattel
mortgage on your furniture?"
"Yes; I hnd no money with which to
even try to save what I have left."
she replied, wiping a tear from holey e.
"And you may know," tbe sheriff
proceeded, "of Ibe attachment I have
for you."
A sudden cheeking of tears, a movement Indicating that sometbiiy? Important had caught the widow's attention

"1 knew," she replied hesitatingly,
"that you had an attachment for tne,

"The nttnehment I have for you," be
said gently, sympathetically, "is different from the one which you mention. It is a more practically Important one.    An attachment that"���
Ho was stalled. Tbe widow essayed
to help him.
"1 can understand," she said, "the
difference between tho���the feeling one
might have for a girl aud that same
feeling after all that has intervened
between then and now. I, too, have
come to understand myself better."
'lhe sheriff, Instead of opening his
legal document, opened his ears, to
say nothing of his eyes. This, bow-
ever, the widow did not see since her
own eyes were bent on tbe floor, while
her ears were strained to hear tbe expected deelaration. Blatebford could
uot feel auy certainty that ho was
either understood to be entering upon
a proposal or that. If so, he was encouraged, lie resolved upon one more
effort to make clear thc business on
which be bad come.
"This word attachment," lie began
���"this word attachment has different
meanings. It Is at once a legal term
"1 know." she sighed.
"I mean, too, a condition of the
heart. My attachment for you Is as
warin. as deep, as unalterable ns It
ever was. Give me the right to stand
as your protector."
Blatebford took her unresisting form
Into his arms, where she rested in
happy contentment for some time
without speaking. Finally she looked
up into bis face and snld:

would have anything to do with that
matter unless, perhaps, to briug you
some gootl news concerning It?"
"What good news?"
"W-why, the plaintiff will renew the

j       In China j
DST now the
door of the far
east, by reason
of American
participation In
tbe Hankow-
Szechuen railroad, is opened
to the capital,
trade und governmental Influence   of  this
country. Tbe
participation of
the United
States In the
Chinese loan
Is on an equal
basis with tbe
British, Ger-
m n n and
French interests. The arrangement Is a
distinct victory
for the Taft
and for Secretary of State Knox. On tbe face of
tbe affair the first Impression is that
it ls a brilliant diplomatic move, and
the impression grows as the whole
question develops. In a word, this
move will prevent Europe from seizing tbe empire.
The Initial act, or tbe entering
wedge, as it is called, of American
predominance takes the form of an
allotment to bankers in New York
city of one-quarter participation in a
loan negotiated by the Chinese government for the construction of tbe
Hankow-Szecbuen railroad. The total
amount of tbe loan Is $30,000,000, of
which $7,500,000 is to be taken by an
American syndicate composed of tbe
National City bank, the First National
bank, J. P. Morgan & Co. and Kuhn,
Loeb & Co. The sum, so small for
Wall street. Is truly a mere wedge,
but the principle involved is considered of worldwide Importance tiud
opens the door for things fur greater.
Americans are to have equal opportunity to supply material for both the
Szechuen and the Canton lines and the
branches. They will appoint subordinate engineers, and they will have also
one-half of all future loans of the Sze-

The novel and unusual feature of the
transaction Is that tbe  United States
government  for the llrst time  iu  its
history officially backed a syndicate of
private bankers and helped them in a
] profitable transaction. Some weeks ago
j the American ambassadors at London,
. Paris nnd Berlin were Instructed by
; the slnte depart ment to convey to the
I governments of England, France and
I Germany  lhe  Intention of thc  Amori-
onn bunkers 10 participate 111 the Chinese railway loan, then pending exclusively In Europe, basing the claim on
nn understanding arranged  In  Pekin
several   .veins   ago   by   diplomats   regarding  the   parceling out  of   future
The state department has fought successfully the European group Which
sought to exclude American participation. The victory, the state department officials sny, augurs well for
the future.
State department officials do not hesitate to declare It was not the mere
amount of money Involved in thc proposed loan that wns nt stake. It wits
a mutter of principle. The question is
n broad one. and the settlement arrived nt in Pekin Aug. 17 Indicates
that the products of American industries will be used In (be construction
of the road, nnd American engineers
will assist In its supervision.
This relatively Insignificant rnilwny
loan proved to be (be critical incident
to bring to n focus the international
diplomatic game that powerful nations have been playing, with the

(.Copyright, 1909, by American Press Association.1
A gentleman with an artistic cut of
beard crossed tbe famous Signoria
square In Florence, Italy, and turned
Into the entrance of tbe Uffizi gallery.
Passing through tbe rooms, he stopped
to look nt the half finished copy of a
Titian. The copyist, a shabbily dressed
man, looked up and. divining that the
visitor was n capable critic, asked in
good American English for bis opinion of his work.
"You being a fellow countryman of
mine," replied the other, "I will give
you a truthful opinion. You are making n botch of It."
The copyist sighed.
"Let me take your seat, and I will
help you out."
In half an hour under the visitor's
touch the copy was an exact replica of
the original painting.
"There!" said the man who had finished It. "Come and dine with me this
evening at my hotel. Nothing remains
to complete the work but to take the
freshness out of It."
The stranger accepted, ate tbe first
good dinner he bad bad In a month,
drank n quart of wine, lighted a
Havana cigar and asked:
"To what do I owe this Interest
from n stranger?"
"Sympathy. I wns once n struggling artist myself."
"And how, may I ask, did you come
to prosper?"
"By painting pictures."
The guest removed bis cigar from
bis lips nnd looked at his host in astonishment.
"Your name?"
"Tom Barrens."
"I confess I never beard of you."
"I hnve a great many aliases, all of
which you have heard often. Listen
and I will tell you the story of my
success. Having a fancy for art, I
became a painter. Having struggled
for recognition for ten years without
getting it, I began to ask myself why.
The answer was that I could originate
nothing. Then I started In to make a
living copying noted pictures in foreign galleries. I discovered that I
could not only copy; I could Imitate.
"Not long after this an art dealer
In Tarls announced that an original
Giotto had been discovered In a secret chamber of n building that was
being torn down. lie hnd purchased
It and offered it for sale. 1 shall not
mention the exact price he got for It,
but it was a fortune for any man.
One day an Italinn from Florence arrived iu New York with a Titian���a
bead of a girl, stiff as a fourteenth
