Mr. Piper Repeatedly Drew
Attention of the Health
Authorities to Unsanitary Conditions Existing, But They Failed to
Take Action.
C. T. W. Piper, 510 Granville
street, has written at length to
THE Expess regarding his repeated
warnings to tbe health officers of
the terrible unsanitary conditions
prevailing at the rear of 404 Granville street, Vancouver. After going into details, Mr. Piper continues
as follows:
" The idea of neglecting the
health of the city for the sake of
saving a few dollars is to me simply
unpardonable. My son had been
complaining all this time until at
last he has been struck down with
that terrible plague, typhoid lever,
and taken in tbe ambulance to the
hospital. Should he die, 1 certain
ly shall hold the city responsible.
At any rate, living or dead, 1 shall
bold tbe city responsible lor damages, for more neglect could not
possibly be.
"I well remember the city of
Victoria being warned again and
again about Point Ellis bridge,
llie city took no notice of it and
,tt last 04 poor people were v. hat 1
call cruelly murdered. My warning lias been treated with indifference by the city health officials,
and the city will sillier accordingly.
"The city of Winnipeg is experiencing an epidemic of typhoid
lever, and several cases of scarlet
fever are at present in Fairview,
and other parts of the city. The
neglect in Victoria cost that city
with legal and other expenses an
enormous sum, and the damage to
the place no one can estimate. It
will be years before tbey can get
over it, and they have had to build
a new bridge after all.
"Now, let anyone look around
the city of Vancouver and see the
terrible death traps that are scattered all over the place. Look at
the end of the lane between the 400
and 500 block on Granville street.
It is a tlirty, filthy, stinking hole,
opening into one ol our best streets.
"Take a walk on Carrall street,
and when you are entering Vancouver from the ferry just glance
at the comer of the building; only
hold your nose while doing so,
Vim will see two boxes filled with
rotten fish, meat, etc., enough lo
breed a plague. How the city has
escaped so long is a mystery to me.
I need scarcely say that I have been
driven to remove my office."

The Road'll Turn Some Day.
1 know the road is rocky,
And the hills are hard to climb;
I know the feet gut bruised and sore
And it takes "heaps o' time."
1 know the burden's heavy-
Ob, you needn't 'tempt to say,
But just keep a-plodding onward—
For the road'll turn some day!
I know tbe homesick feeling,
And the ache you bear alone;
1 know your heart is breaking
Hy the bravely stilled moan.
I know the arm you leaned upon
Has now no power to stay;
But just keep a-plodding onward—
For the road'll turn some day!
1  know the structures you have
Of youth-day dreams lie low;
I know you see their ruins stare
Everywhere you go.
I know the sunbeams 'round your
Long since have ceased to play;
But just keep a-plodding onward—
For the road'll turn some day!
There's a day a'coming shortly,
When there'll be no hills to climb;
When there'll be no weary burdens
To be tugging all the lime;
Whea the heart will cease its aching
And your sorrows melt away-
Just keep a-plodding onward,
For the road'll turn some day!
A Story of Western Plainsmen
A wide stretch of sandy plain,
broken here and there by
bunches of brown-dry mesquite
and vividly green, repellant cactus,
under a remorseless sun that
makes the air quiver with pulsating waves of heat; to the extreme
lelt a ridge of bald gray rock, and
iu the background a cloud ol dust,
between the ridge and the cloud
two horsemen, plying quirt and
spur to animals whose muzzles and
sides were whitened with froth as
their muscles responded to the
merciless scourging.
For a time it seemed simply a
picture painted on canvas. Then
the setting was changed by the
(launched banking ol the ponies as
their riders pulled them up with a
j.'rk, and, throwing themselves

Shank looked at In in curiously

nature permitted. Certainly Shank
wasted no symyatliy upon men in

the death that lay before him was
the one he had looked forward to
and expected since be was old
enough to ride nr shoot. Now
that it had come within arm's
reach, he accepted it with the fatalistic indifference of bis class. A
man can die but once. He, at
least, would die lighting, "with his
boots on." What more could a
man ask when his time came? It
was infinitely better than thai other
way. Not that he was at all
anxious to die. Life still held
plenty fur him.   But be bud come

sand, The posse balled and the
cloud settled. Another shut (rum
behind the rocks, another empty
saddle, and the sheriff drew his
men out uf range while the attack
was planned.
"It's all up, Shank. They're too
many lor us. Guess it's our time
to cash in," remarked one of the
crouching men, without taking his
eyes from the group of horsemen.
"Yep," answered Shank. "Got
a chew?"
The solace was partaken of by
both men and a period of silent,
appreciative mastication ensued.
" 'Bout twenty near's I kin make
•'Exactly, not counting the two
tricks we took."
"We'd uughler stand good for
four more apiece."
"And the rest for us."
After another interim of silence
Jim said:
"I'm sorry for the girl."
"Tell with her. She got no
niore'n she desarved."
"Maybe. But it goes against
the grain to shoot a woman."
"Generally speikln', yep. But

"All the Siiinr   -"
"Wal, il's no use hrandin' a dead

'bout it long."
To the self-evidence of this re-
horses, had spread out iu a wide
semicircle. The Sheriff raised his
hand and they started forward,
stooping, running, walking, crawling, taking advantage of every
inequality of ground, bunch of
cactus, mesquite, or other means
of protection from the eyes and
rifles of the men behind the ridge.
They were brave but not fools,
knowing the two men, appreciating its true value the rapidity and
accuracy with which both could
handle rifles and revolvers.
Neither of the outlaws spoke as
they prepared for the attack.
Shank shifted his position a few
inches to where he could command
a wider range. Jim edged closer
to the boulder behind which he
One ol the posse catching a
glimpse ol Shank's hat, raised his
rifle. Shank's forcfiugcr contracted and the man sank to the
ground, the hand with which he
clutched his wrist dyed red, his
face white beneath the bronze.
Another man, inexperienced, rose
to his leet and started toward the
one who bad fallen. He joined,
but did not reach his fellow-
Shank took another chew and
slapped viciously at a fly. Jim
pulled the brim of his sombrero
lower over his eyes; the fierce glare
oi the sun hampered his aim.
The semicircle was contracting
its circumference. From behind a
clump of cacti a shadow was projected upon the sand. This was
unfortunate for the owner of the
shadow, who rose staggering to
his (ect to have his lungs pierced
by another bullet from Jim's rille.
The posse grew slightly nervous.
They were still two hundred yards
from the ridge, and already their
number «IS lessened by In e.    Tbe
bullets began to patter on the
rocks about the outlaws. One
tore a piece of shirt from Shank's
shoulder. Another clipped the
rim ol Jim's hat. The Sheriff had
dropped his rille and was carrying
bis revolver in his left hand. Two
of his deputies were limping,
another was gazing ruefully at the
stump of a missing trigger finger.
The Sheriff frowned. At this
rate there would be no man to
make the final rush when the time
came for it, They were yet too far
off to make an immediate attempt
anything but suicidal. Had the
two men who held the natural fort
been less expert, in a less advantageous position	
But the sheriff could change
neither men nor position. He had
to make the best, or worst ol it.
"They are getting ready to rush
us," said Jim; replenishing the
magazine of his Winchester rifle.
Shank grunted.
"I'll take all who come this side)
ol that big bush of mesquite. You
attend to the rest,"
Shank smiled quizzically at the
tone of command in  "th' Kid's1
voice,   but  otherwise   made   no
"You don't think I was to blame
for the "
"Naw.    Course not."
"Was she—dead?"
"Dead as tbey make' em.  What
of it?"
"Nothing.   Only "
"Only what? We ain't got no
time t' waste 'chimin).
"I—I feel glad Duigin brought
a big posse."
"Feel that a-way, do ye? Wal, 1
don't see as it'll make much-
Look out! Here ihey come!"
Only ten men bad leaped to
their feet in response lo the
Sheriff's "Come on, boys! There's
only two of 'em!"
Shank heard, smiled grimly, and
shot the Sheriff between the eyes.
Then for a few moments a inina-
ture battle raged, stones rolled
down the little hill from under the
feet of the charging posse. Shank
and Jim with close-pressed lips,
worked trigger and ejectors with
Galling rapidity. Men followed
the stones, and the dust cloud too
form again. Then all was quiet.
Jim glanced toward where Shank
lay, his rille beside him, a revolver
half-drawn from its holster gripped
in his stiffening right hand, his left
outstretched, with curved fingers.
Shank would never rustle
another maverick, never
again rule, with his Colt for scepter. Yet he bad done more than
most mien. He had realized his
Jim sighed, and coughing, spat
blood. There was ?. queer, tightened feeling aboui his lungs. His
breath came hard, gurgling.
Just the other side of Shank's
body he saw the figure of a girl
who had run between his rifle and
her father that morning. Had she
come to reproach him now? It
had not been his fault. The old
man bad threatened, would have
killed him had be not lircd first.
Otherwise Jim would not have shot
her father. Shank would tell her
that if she would only ask him and
not stand there looking like that.
Surely she understood. Did she
think he would willingly harm
anything she cared for? Why no,
because -because he loved her.
He bad gone to the house this
morning to tell her so. He loved
her, and had killed her, or Shank
saitl that he had. She must understand—she did. Look! She was
not angry, she was smiling! He
would go to her and explain it all,
and she would forgive him.
Slowly, painfully, with ever-
increasing weakness and dizziness,
Jim raised himself on his elbows,
clutching at the boulder which bad
sheltered him, then to bis knees,
and with a supreme effort was on

there was a sharp report, and Jim
bad gone to make bis explanation.
Doubtless as remarkable a police
force as the world has seen is the
Canadian organization known as
the Northwest Police.
Organized in 1874 with some
three hundred enlisted men, it has
swelled to a force of about one
thousand. While this number
seems large it rapidly shrinks in
the mind's eye when one considers
the extent of territory patrolled.
Five hundred thousand square
miles are made as safe to travel as
the best policed of our cities.
United they form a military
body, divided each forms an independent unit. Often, single'
handed, they accomplish by strategy
what a force of soldiers has failed
to do. They study to prevent
crime rather than punish it,
Once they wore the Tommy
Atkins pill-box cap, bright red
coat, black trousers with yellow
stripe, all announcing their presence miles away. Now they get
down to business in khaki, or
servicible, comfortable clothes.
Their seat is the Montana tree,
with stirrup-straps quite long.
No other body ol men ever contained such heterogeneous elements—side by side one finds the
lull-blooded Indian and the college-
bred Englishman. Their duties
are manifold, from successfully
handling the Indians, suppressing
"rustlers," and wiping out desperadoes, to curbing the illicit whiskey
Some years ago dispatches to a
distant post had to be sent during
extremely severe weather. A
loung college-bred man was selected lur the task. Strong and a
wonderful rider, he set out in the
first snow flurries of a stinging
blizzard. Days slid into weeks,
with no tidings from him. The
following spring a patrol chanced
into a secluded coulee, and there
found a snow-worn uniform still
clothing the bones ol the lost dispatch bearer.
On his orders were scrawled
these words: "Lost. Horse dead
Am trying to push ahead. Have

uv cnaaus njui.a,
Does the church teach lhat a
man should be content with his
present condition, no matter what
that condition may be? Nothing
could be farther from the truth.
The whole trend ol its teaching is
in the opposite direction. Some
men are sneeringly saying that the
church teaches submission.
Just now I want to point out the
difference between being ' 'content''
and being "satisfied." The bible
exhorts men to. be content. It
does not teach that they are to be
There is a great difference between the two. St. Paul said that
he had learned in whatsoever stale
he was, "therewith to be content."
He had learned how to make (behest of things as Ihey were. But
in the same epistle he added: "No'
as though I had already attained,
either were already perfect. This
one thing I do; forgetting the
things which are behind (the sue
cesses and the failures) I press
on." He was content but not
Satisfaction is derived from the
Latin words "tain" and facia"—
which mean making or having
enough. Contentment is Irom the
Latin "contineo"—which means, to
contain, or to hold one's self together.
Contentment lies in one's sell.
Satisfaction is derived from external objects.   Contentment means
the enjoyment of what one has
but it does not imply lhat one has
reachetl the ideal. It is not in-
difference or laziness. It does not
demoralize character or hinder
noble aspirations or brave endeavor after improvement.
It does mean, however, that one
is self-constrained—the master of
one's self. No man can reach out
after better and higher things until
he has conquered himself. Solomon, the wise king, once said
"He that ruleth his spirit is greater
than he that taketh a city."
And so, the church is with the
toiler in his struggles after better
things. It does not teach that a
man must be satisfied. It dues
teach that a man should learn to
be content—and so does common
sense teach it.
