S. W. Walter Has Coin|>leU'ly Renov-
ntcd and Altered Store Formerly
Owue<i by Mr. Hutcherson.
Very extensive alterations and improvements on the store, which tor
years was occupied by Mr. H. J,
Hutcherson, have now been completed
by the new proprietor, Mr. S. W.
Walter. Tha whole front of the building has been removed and thoroughly
modem window display has been made
possible. The approaches have all
lieen improved, the entrances placed
In convenient positions and the Internal arrangements rendered more
suitable for cund'.i 'ting an extensive
business. The alterations have Incurred great outlay, but they will
doubtless repay Mr. Walter for his
enterprise in the additional convenience for handling and displaying his
goods. One of the most needed Improvements is that which has taken
place In the old store house, which
has been practically rebuilt, front
flooring and celling all being new. '
Mr. Walter will now be able to hande |
that bulk of "business which his experience and enterprise entitle him
to, and he will feel that when he Is
not airing his new auto that enterprise and industry have thlelr rewards.

robbed on Sunday night of between
fifty and sixty chickens. Both the
local and pr-*Vlnelal police have been
notified and are Investigating into the
matter. This Is the second t.me
within a month that Mr. Crowford
has been victimized, and several or
his neighbors have suffered in a like
manner. These wholesale robberies
are presumed to be the work of expert
automobile thieves. The extraordinary thing is that no one heard the
night visitors in the chicken house.
The padlock waa wrenched from the
door and practically only a few stray
chickens having escaped from the
thieves' clutches. Hetermined efforts
are being made to probe the affair
and to prevent a recurrence, and the
next visitors of a like kind may get
a very hot welcome. Probably the
same gang paid a visit to Mr. John
Oliver, recently, but were surprised,
and decamped, leaving two sacks of
chickens ready for transportation be-

For an off day, the New Westminster market today was a good one.
Offerings were fair and of good quality and the attendance was large,
considering the weather. Butter was
not very plentiful. It started selling
at 40 cents per pound, but dropped to
35, at which price it was quickly disposed of. Eggs were verjj plentiful
and sold steadily at 35 cents per doz.
Vegetables by the sack were of the
usual variety and price and the

The cry of British Columbia at the
present moment is two-fold. It is for
more settlers and more local industries. Nothing will be so Hkely to insure the former as success with the
latter. The provincial government is
doing all In its power to encourage
land settlers, and what *.v'*h :x:e'.ieht
land laws, a rapidly developing transportation system, and good roads and
bridges, there is little doubt that the
Premier ts fully Justified in predicting
a very rosy future in B. C.
In a recent address to the Press
Gallery, he referred to the Impending
establishment of local industries of
magnitude and of great importance.
Whilst he did not specify particular-
ly those who are "au fait" with affairs know that he had reference to
an iron and steel Industry, additional
lumbering ana pulp mills, a Bruls-h
fishing industry, and a huge match
factory, the latter to be established
at Sapperton. by the Dominion Match
Company, Ltd.
The latter is by no means of the
least Importance for reasons which
will speedily occur to those who are
familiar with the universal success
achieved by match factories. In England Bryant and May, and in Canada
Bdly are household words. The pro-
Ucts of their factories are in practically every home. They cater for the
millions and in so doing not only fill
a popular want, but ensure enormous
profits for themselves. Indeed, there
Is no Industry more universally profitable than match-making, and it _�� well
known that the astute and capable
head of the Salvation Army, General
Booth, fell back upon this as one of
the surest means of financing his
great humanitarian Institution.
The Dominion Match Company.
Ltd., is commencing business under
the most favorable auspices. It has
secured the patents on Parker's continuous process, which has demonstrated a saving of exactly .fifty iper
cent, in the cost of production, as
compared with the Hie process.
Under the latter a ca.se of 144 boxes
containing 500 matches each, which
sells wholesale for $4.50, costs $3.22
to produce, whilst under the Parker
continuous process the cost us $1.67.
On the basis oi a carload a day. the
profit would be $1,415, and for 800
working days in the year, $124,500.
a sum equal to 42 per cent, on the
entire capital stock.
Probably the German system of
manufacture is the best known, but it
is laborious, slow, and costly, compared with the Parker process, the
chief advantage of which Is that any
kind of wood can be us^d, such as
alder, Cottonwood, hemlock, spruce.

throughout llritish Columbia and can

The Dominion Resident Engineer Dies
at Victoria in His Seventy-
Sixth Year.
Mr. G. A. Keefer. for many years
resident engineer of the Domtnlo'i
Department of Public Works In
British Columbia, with headquarters
in New Westminster, died in Victoria Friday evening, the cause of
death being a clot on the brain. Mr.
Keefer was taken to Victoria some
days ago, suffering from a paralytic
stroke, and has since been under
medical care. It was thought that
he would recover, but last night he
had a relapse and died despite all efforts to rally him.
Mr. Keefer was In his seventy-sixth
year. He was born in Cornwall, Ont.,
and educated at 3t. Catherine's academy. In the course of his long and
interesting career, he served on survey work for the Grand Trunk Railway, made a hydrographical survey of
the Illinois river from Lake Michigan
to the Mississippi, constructed a lock
at Keokuk, la., under United States
engineers, built, a lock and dam at
Henry, 111., for the state, was chief
engineer of the Belleville and Grand
Junction and Belleville and Hastings
Railways, made surveys for the C. P.
R. through the Rocky mountains by
the Yellow-head Pass and was on thfe
final survey and construction of that
line through the Fraser River canyon. He became Dominion government Inspector In British Columbia
ln 1886, and ln 1887 went Into prl
vate practice, during which period he
huilt the Vancouver waterworks at
Capllano, finally accepting the post of
resident engineer in 1900. Mr> Keefer
was a member of the English Institute of Civil Engineers, the Canadian
Society of Civil Engineers, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and
the National Geographical Society of
Washington, D. C.
He is survived by a widow, one
daughter and two sons. His daughtei
ls the wife of Captain Sankey of the
Royal Engineers, now stationed at Al
deishot. One of his sons is Mr. H. C.
Keefer, barrister, and the other Mr.
T. W. Keefer, of Victoria.
Funeral services were held at two
o'clock last week over the remains of William Cooke, the aged mar,
who died on Thursday from injuries
received from being struck by a logging cable when it broke in a mill at
Mt. Lehman on the same day. Rev.
C. W. Brown officiated at the funeral
services and interment was made ln
the Odd Fellows' cemetery.

The Nebraska Experiment Station
has just issued Bulletin No. 127, on
"Competition In Cereals." This bulletin discusses the effect of natural
competition which takes place between plants of cereal crops under
lield conditions, Indicating that this
is nature's means of maintaining
yield and vigor. This bulletin may
be had free of cost by residents of
Nebraska upon application to the Ag
ricultural Experiment Station, Lin
coin, Nebraska.
This bulletin discusses the compe
tition which tak��s place between
cereal plants when g/own under field
conditions For example, for several
years to every 100 seeds of wheat or
oats aiwn under favorable conditions,
only about 66 planits were harvested,
or only about two-thirds of the plants
reached maturity. In other words,
about one-third of the plants thait
come up, for some cause or other,
die out before maturity. While there
are various causes for this loss, It
has been found that art least one
cause seems to be the natural competition which takes place when the
stronger plants crowd out the weaker
ones. This seems to be nature's
method of maintaining the stronger
and more vigorous plants In field
crops when sown under ordinary conditions.
Our ordinary rate of seeding places
a great many more plants on the land
than Is necessary, and a certain percentage of the weak ones are very
soon crowded out. The thicker the
rate of planting the greater number
crowded out. Hence we should expect that saving seed from very thick
planting would give ua stronger and
more vigorous plants than those that
have been grown under thin seeding
and not subjected to the effects of
competition. Practical results with
corn have shown that seed grown
under thick planting, namely, five
plants per hill, has produced a higher
yield than seed from one stalk per
hill, the difference after six years'
selection from the two rates of planting amounting to seven or eight
bushels per acre.
Nature S6��ms to have a way of
eliminating the weaklings, especially
when very thick planting ,1s done
(as is the custom when sowing Small
gra.n crops), but this probably accounts for the productiveness of these
crops, although practically no selection  ls  practised   with  them.

Spauiurds arc natural gamblers, lu
Mexico the Ilttle boys constantly play
for coppers on the streets, and from
them up to the wealthiest there Is one
continued chain of hazard. During tbe
railroad building that started ln tbat
republic some years ago I wa_ employed as an engineer on one of them and
had an opportunity to witness this and
other Mexican characteristics.
There were railroad followers who
preyed upuu the workmen, taking especial care to be on hand when pay day
came round. On an evening of one of
these pay days I went into a tent
where 1 bad seen one of my men go, a
young Mexican whom I employed fot
an axmau. I wus interested In him.
for 1 knew that he had a wife and
some babies who kept pace with him
as he passed from one end of the line
to tbe other, for in Mexico there are
persons who hare no homes, sleeping
in tbe open air, father, mother, children
a ml dog huddled together to keep one
another warm.
.Manuel���that wag my axman's name
-was In tbe lent seated before a table
shaking dice with the man who owned
the outfit. There were several other
workmen In the place who hnd within
a few minutes been cleaned out of the
pa.r they bad that day received. I
stood looking on. Quite likely had 1
uot been there the proprietor would
bave made short work of Manuel; but.
seeing me, he put oCf the denouement,
permitting the axman to get a Ilttle
But 1 soon noticed that whenever It
was for tbe rascal's interest tbat the
dice should fall with large numbers up
they Invariably did so. In short lt
looted to De that he haJ some power
over the dice to make them fall as be
wished. Manuel's pay was very small,
and he had not much to lose. While
he was playing, a little woman, rather
pretty, came In with a baby ln her
arms and stood over him. He looked
up at her, and I felt sure she was his
wife. She had not come there to get
him away. She was as infatuated as
Doubtless she bad been living with
ber little one for weeks in this way,
he losing his weekly wages every
Saturday night, both expecting that
thc day would come when they would
have a ran of luck and wlu enough
money to go to a bullfight.
After she came ln tbe proprietor let
Manuel win a little. The gambler was
afraid that I might exert influence to
have bim sent away, so be did every
thing temporarily to favor his victim.
1 confess I was more Interested in the
dice than the victim. If they were
���imply "loaded" be could not manipulate them as he did; they would always roll high. At least it was my
opinion tbat no skill ln throwing would
avert tbls. it occurred to me that tbe
gambler bad some way of controlling
the dice that was not visible.
Living ln scientific times. I was not
long ln forming a theory. There mast
be some electric connection between
htm and tbe dice. Then 1 bethought
myself of a pocket compass which I always curried and which I continually
needed in my out of door work. Taking position hack of tbe gambler,
where he would not see me, I took
out my compass and looked nt lt
The needle vibrated violently.
My theory was confirmed. There
must be a magnet somewhere near.
Stonptug, 1 looked under tbe table, it
hail four le-;s. and In Its center wns u
bos attached to the underside. So far
su good. That box contained the tung
That I felt sure of. I knew very
well that by attaching a metal plate
to oue side of a die and rolling the
die above the magnet while the cur
rent was on lhe metal face would be
held to thy table, leaving its opposite
face up If t'jere was no current on.
the dice would roll by chance. Sometimes the current was cu; sometimes
it was not.
I now brought my watchfulness to
bear upon the gambler's movements.
I noticed thi't every time he threw
high there wns a slight movement of
his right leg. The leg wns not readily
seen, being under the table, but I was
Interested ami did my best to see. I
was convince,', that attached to the
leg of the table was' on electric key
nnd thnt when he pressed his leg
ngalnst the key the curreut was turn
ed ou.
So absorbed was 1 lu my puzzle thnt
1 failed to notice that Manuel bad hut
a few coppers left when 1 hnd reached
my conclusion. 1 whispered to him to
go tn the chief engineer's office aud
HNk him to send me a few jneu. While
be wns gone I sat down ut the table
to piny till be came buck. On his return witb tbe men I lifted the top ofl
the tfltile nnd exposed a magnet and a
dry battery Just where i expected
Attached rn tbe table leg was tbe key.
I ordeted the gambler to return the
money lie bnd won from .Manuel snd
the others aud to get /way from our
proximlti as soon as possible or I
would hnve him locked up. fie returned the funds, and I saw him no
But. alss! When the next pay day
come around I saw Manuel, acenmpa
nied by his wife, she carrying tbe
han't, umkiii'.' straight for a similar
tent, when1 ne soon got rid of bis
week's earnings.
Rut I concluded to waste no more
time on a family in whom tbe gambling spirit iiad taken so strong a bold
tbat it con id not tie eradicated.
The Man
He Licked
Jobnny Atherton was Intellectual
lather than muscular. He led bis
rlass Id college, while bis elder brother. Tom Atherton. led tbe football
team. Johnny was a demure little
cbap. Everybody liked bim, and nobody ever thought of calling him anything but Johnny, while his brother
was spoken of as Tom Atherton, with
a resonance denoting respect for his
bulldog strength.
Mildred Twining met Johnny awty
from bis borne and conceived a great
liking for bim. Johnny fell deeply lo
love with her and proposed to ber.
Rut there was one thing wanting In
bim tbat Mildred wished In a bus-
band, and on this account his case
bung fire. She wanted a man with
Johnny's Intellect and detectable gentleness, but with a latent strength
that might be aroused on occasion.
Jobnny begged bard for a favorable
answer to bis suit, but could not Induce the girl to give It to him. However, sbe bad a friend In the town
where be lived, whom she had prom
leed to visit and told Johnny that
when sbe arrived he might come to
see ber. This gave him a faint hope
that she might relent.
But when Mildred appeared and
Jobnny renewed his pleadings he received the same reply, and she told
him frankly that be was everything
she required save tbat courage and
strength that a woman craves ln ber
protector. Johnny went home and
poured his disappointment Into his
brother's sympathetic ear. Tom. who
did not at all value his vigor and
w-jr.ld have gladly exchanged It for
his brother's Intellectual and winning
r-uu'.lCoatloas, sy*_.;)*--ize_ w!."i hl-a
deeply. The two talked the matter
over, and Tom wished he could transfer enough of his blacksmltblan traits
to Johnny to enable him to win the
prize he coveted. However, he said
something to the latter that put an
Idea Into his bead.
One morning Jobnny and Mildred
were strolling Idly together through
the suburban town ln which tbe former lived, Johnny pleading. Mildred
putting him off for the same reason as
before. Approaching a house where a
man sat smoking and looking out
through an open window, he glanced
at the coming couple, arose from his
chair and emerged from the front door
In time to meet them. As be passed be
looked Impudently at Mildred and said:
"You're a beaut, but you've got a
measly cbap for a feller."
The blood rushed Into Mildred's
cheeks. But before she could show
any further resentment Johnny Jumped for the Insulter and landed a blow
on his chin. Tbe man who received It
was large and strong, but be cowered
before Jobnny.
"A man who will Insult a lady," said
Johnny with a ring of courage ln his
voice that had never been heard there
before, "is n coward, and if 1 am a
h.ensly chap I can whip even as big a
coward as you."
With that Johnny went at the fellow like a fury. His enemy seemed
to lose all sense of advantage of his
steel muscles und was so slow in his
movements that Johnny got ln three
blows to his one. And whenever he
aimed one that would have finished
Johnny the latter sprang nimbly aside.
Mildred looked on this singular eu
counter astonished. As sbe gazed
Jobnny planted a blow on her Insult-
er's jaw that sent him sprawling.
Johnny Jumped on him and held him
down glaring at him like a demon.
"Hand me that stone, please." Johnny said to Mildred, "and I'll mash his
head to a Jelly."
"I'll do no such thing," was the reply, "Do you want to be hanged for
"Murder! Is it murder to kill a dog?
I'm going to gouge his eyes out!" And
Jobnny put his thumbs to the sidea of
his enemy's eyes. The man seemed
to have lost all power to save himself
und looked up al his little enemy lu
terror. Mildred, dreading to see his
eyes gouged out and to save her lover
from such u horrid crime, took him
by the collar und dragged him off his
enemy. The craven slunk away, John
ny calling after him:
"You keep out uf my way after this
If you don't want to get killed. The
next time I run across you I'm goiug
to finish the Job. I'd do It now If It
weren't for tbe Intercession of the
young ludy you Insulted."
The man said nothing, apparently
desirous of putting distance between
him and hN Herce little enemy as
gulckly as possible.
Tbe episode made Johnny Atherton
a perfect man in the eyes of Mildred
Twining, nnd within two hours after
It occurred the two were engaged, bur
lily after Johnnys solemn promise
| tat If he again met the fellow who
hud given the Insult he would let him
