About    the   Future   of
North Vancouver.
(S|,ecl*.l    ('ort'iispninli'iiii,'    to      Till
Ottawa, July y.—"It sliould be
gratifying u> North Vancouveritos
to learn that tile prospects ol a
railroad being constructed from
North Vancouver northward in the
Hear future were nev.r blighter
than at the present time. It is
with a degree of certainty whereof 1 speak, and lu say that it will,
tn all probability, he within two
years is not overstepping the
bounds of reason.'' In an interview with the representative »f
Burrard in the Dominion House
Of Commons, R. (i- Macpherson,
M P., thus expressed himself, in
a mosl emphatic tone, when asked
as lo the future prospects of the
Ambitious City,
"Von might also put down,"

others of lesser note, Mr Mac-
pherson, in his ever obliging
manner, was nut slow lo make the
Western stranger feel at home, as.
Ly his striking personality he has
become acquainted with most all
"ile ie, minis, 'even those who
ityle him and "Hill" Galligller as
"Hoodlums." Mr. Macpherson's
friends also shared the lust offices
of all newly-forilled friends, which
in itself is n standing testimony of
the western member's popularity.
Naturally, upon being informed
0.' the place of abode, questions
•drifted lo the welfare and
and Vancouver in particular,
Here was an excellent opportunity
to put in a word about our new
rising city on the north shore of
BllTrnrd inlet, nnd, needless lo
im, was fully taken advantage ul.
Mi. Macpherson is a very busy
mail ai limes, as his constituency
is uppermost in his mind, and he
is ever at the service of one and
all. He stated i asually, that he
had misted only three days since
.the opening of the present session,
which is something to leel proud

Referring to questions that
•aillii lid lhe whole province, Mr.
Macpherson was very optimistic,
mul spoke in eulogistic terms of
the mining prospects in the
northern country, which would
■directly affect North Vancouver.
He had also heard of several
mining companies that had been
recently organized to exploit the
■mineral resources ol the province,
nnd altogether, prospects were
never brighter than al iln pi,

see any new town on this coast 01

would happen, The stores would

would close their doors. The

Elegant Pallet or Peacock Hues and
Stately Design !> Being Erected For
Wealthy Merchant In London,
A houso for Mr. K. R. Debcnham,
of rlio well known drapery Arm of
Ddbcnhasn 4 bY.tbody, is beini; built
la thc west end that iniikcs every oib-r
bouso In London b.ok Insignificant and
colorless and cheap.
It Is nothing loss than sn Italian
palace—on a moderate scalo as regard,
size—and when It Is finished It promises to eclipse, any bouso on this side
of the Atlantic or the other In statefi-
oesa of design, richness of color, and
exquisite be-auty of proportion and Internal deooratlvoieiss.
It Is planted, llko any ordinary London box of ta-i'-k.'. nnd mortar. In Addison road, half-way between Keuslnrrtoa
High road and Shepberd's Hush.
It Is a square building, with Its "face"
to the road, but each face Is as rich
as tho others, In d'.jiign and material.
Tlie square face towards thc road Is
made up of four bays, or slightly recessed spaces, running up nearly to the
oorn*"c, and round-arched at the top.
They aro divided by pillars of crcam-
whlto terra cotta, from which the areh-
*•*, of tbe came material, spring. Tb.
tour spaces, save for tbc long, severely
cut windows, are made of highly glued
imu bricks, oT a rich sea color.
Aibove the arehes and below the cornice thero runs a kind of d"cp plain
frieze of sapphire—also uf glazed brick;
whne Hie smaller band between the
cornice and the roof Is a blue of lhaj
most g*)rg*-ous pwu-ock hue. Tho rt**-
bed roof, of emerald green '.lies—specially Imported from Italy In about
sixty great (rates--rises from projecting eaves ejf creum-whlle terra cotta.
Tbe stately chimneys are of white terra cotta, with spaces ot blue tiles.
The edeo* of the masses of ritSi col-
er, cooled by the pillars anal arches and
Oorntce *>f cream-white terra cotta, Is
one "f splendid harmony, and the whola
house crystallizes Into a ploturo of perfectly balnni-eal parts and tbo most
beautiful hues.
The "fronl" of the house Is like the
road face, save that at each extremity
projections, something "f the "bow-
window" type, tiut running up from
glOund to cornice, have been skilfully
milled. There la the same wealth of
cidor and masterly design.
The sides are further dlgnilled with
areheil, recessed porticos, of great
height, the main entrance being at one
side, and a garden entrance at Uit
Tin, o n're of the Interior Is a
large and lofty hall, the walls of which
ore naiw In course of being tjoed with
peaoock-bluo tiles, of deep tS'its. Tin
lofty roof Is domed, and through arched spaces below the d 'm*' one sees a
gallery on three sides of lhc hall, giving access to the upper rooms.

"Heiul men's Bboca" Is a common expression, but means much In mnny
purls of the old world. Whore tlie boots
of the (lend uro accorded much Importune*'.
In Scotland, In the northern parts of
England, in Scandinavia, ns well as In
Hungary, Croatia aad Itoumnnla, tbo
utmost care is taken among the lower
classes that each corpse is provided
with n pair of good shoes before being
iniil Inlo the ground. If the (lend person happens to be a trump and to have
been found dead barefooted there will
always bo souie charitable soul to furnish n pair of good boots for Interment
nlong with the corpse.
An Inspector of police In Scotland bus
been known to purchase of Ills own accord n new pair of boots nnd to plnce
them In the grave, reopened for tlie
purpose, of a murdered stranger who
bad been Inadvertently interred barefooted the dny before,
This practice, which likewise prevails
among the TBlganoa ns well ns In mnny
parts of Asia, is attributable to tho belief that unless the dead nre well shod
when burled their ghosts come buck to
haunt tin* locality where tbey lirenthed
their lust In search nf n pair of boots.
The shoes are popularly supposed to
be needed to puss In comfort and
safety the broad plains which the departed soul must traverse before It
can reach paradise, Among snme nn-
tions these plains are declared to bo
covered with furzes, thorns and mo.
