Uie people of this provinco do not attend divine service and he doderod it
waa thc parent*' duly to live au<h a
lill and Mt an example whieh would
dl.reol Uie lootsteps ol (hair children
aright. The character* of Uie ebil-
dren should be moulded by Uic .parent* and eaacnUally ao in early childhood and thia wa. just a. nceuary
as was Uw buildars' foundations.
The first great avil that menaced Ue
country was tha drink habit. Iff \h
majority Of fuses the frequenters ol
bnr-roo:iis were under tbe ago ol 'in
years. Tho suine was upparuiit in the
prisons tbat he had visited, lln assorted that nlmut a yeor ago a ii-

a low hundred dollars and within llu:
ymt   it   was   resold   at   u   '..minus
price. This, ho said, showed tup mormons profits ol tho traffic Another
evil was immorality. Prink was .really nt the root of tliis sin and il the
latter was abolished there would be
less ol tho .former. North Vancouver
was a young and growing city. It
was in its province to grow.up in tho
right way but be ventured tbo warn-
iui: that it might grow up in tbu
wrong way as well. .
• Tho third evil to e/bieh he referred
was gambling. While not carried on
so openly as the other evils it was
closely associated with them and was
followed by men in rooms and women
in parlors. Ho hoped in concluding
that overy man would sou tbat his

that he could have a voice in effect-

A scheme once mooted several
years ago on this Bide of the Inlet wus
brought before the locul legislature by
Mr. Cow|(iy ol pbilliwnek when ho proposed tp bring in a resolution urging
tho Dominion government to build a
mumi connecting Pitt Meadows wiu
Burrard inlet. The cost ol such un
undertaking would be largo but Mr.
Cowley outlined such advantages as
bs thought would accrue and offset
the expenditures made in construction.
It would convert liurrard Inlet into t
semi-fresh water harbor, and Uiiib destroy tho leredoes, and tbe earth taken Irom tho canal could bo used to fill
in the Hats ut Port Moody and so reclaim many acres of land now lying
waste. Another advantage would bo
tba draining ol Pitt Meadows whore
thoro wero twenty-live thousand acres
that could nut bu reclaimed by uny
other means. In uddilion, thut tho
delloction ol so much water from Pitt
river would lessen thc Ircshols ou tbo
Fraser and make arable lurge tracts
in Chilliwack and Dowdney now subject to flooding and would also provide
nn easy means of access for produce of
Pitt Meadows and Fraser Vulley to thc

To tbe perplexed observer It waa In

Having spoken to his waiter, Calendar for some seconds raked the room
with quick glances, as If seeking an
acquaintance I'resuinnbly disappointed, be swung buck to face tho girl,
bending forward lo reach her ears
with accents low pitched and confidential. She on her part fell at once
attentive, grave untl resjiouslve. Perhaps a dozen sentences passed between them At the outset her hrows
,■,nm.n ii'il. uud she shook ber bead In
gentle dissent, whereupon Calendar's
manner became more Imperative.
Gradually, unwillingly, she seemed to
yield consent. Once sbe caught her
breath sharply and, Infected by ber
companion's agitation, sat back, color
fading again In Ihe round young
Klrkwood's waiter put In an Inopportune appearance with the bill. The
youngajiiiaii fui Id It. When he looked
up again Calendar had swung squarely about in his chair. Uis eye encoun
tered Klrkwood's. He nodded pleasantly. Temporarily confused, Klrkwood returned thc nod.
In a twinkling he bad repented
Cafendar had left his chair and was
wending his way through the tables
toward Klrkwood's. Reaching It, he
paused, offering lhe hand of genial
fellowship. Klrkwood accepted lt half
lii'itrlcdly (what else was he to do?),
remarking at the same time tbat Calendar bad recovered, much of his composure. There was now a normal coloring In the heavily Jowlcd countenance, wltb less glint of fear In Ihe
quick, dark eyes, and Calendar'a hond,
oven If moist snd cold, no longer trembled. Furthermore, lt waa immediately demonstrated that bia Impudence
bad not deserted blm.

divert suspicion, should he be over

to Hud you here."
"Is it?" returned Klrkwood coolly.
Ue disengaged his fingers.
Tb* pink plump face was contorted
tu a furtive grimace of deprecation.
Wilbout waiting for permission Calendar dropped Into tbe vacant chair.
"liy dear air," be proceeded, unabashed, "I throw myself upon your
mercy." m.
"tlm devil you dor      "
"I must. I'm bi tbe douce of a bole,
and there's no one I know bare besides yourself.  I-l"—
Klrkwood saw lit to lead him vu,
partly because out of tbs corner «f Oil

Calendar. Vou throw yourself on a

"It's this way. I'm called away on'

gi'sied Klrkwood.
"Put her In a cab at tba door."

"I do not understand," amended tb*

only long enough to regain bia aalf
control and take couneel wltb bl* pru*
"It is Impossible, Mr. Klrkwood. I,

"Very well. For tba aake of tbe sr-

Swiftly, stammering ta bia huts:

"Tbe trutb-tbe truth is, If you will

"Theii why place ber lu audi a poslllon?" Klrkwood demanded sharply.
Calendar's eyes burned, Incandescent
wit(i resentment. Offended, ha offered
to rise ond go, but changed bb) mind

"I heg of you, slr"-
"One moment, Ur, Calendar."
Abruptly Klrkwood's westhercock

Montreal, Jan. 80-Although Can-
oda's loss by forest fires was far less
this past year than on any previous
year, nnd although her record through
many years has boon much better
than her neighbors in the United
States, concerted efforts aro now under way to minimize in a practical
manner tho many dangors which from
one sourco and another, besot ber timber wealth. At tho forestry convention which was presided pvorby Earl
Grey in Quebec, many opinions were
expressed by noted foresters from sll
parts of tho country on the part of
those who are vitally interested in and
partly responsible Ior timber destruction would do moro lor conservation
ol this kind than any law ever promulgated. Tborelore, it may bo solely
said that it will not be many mqnths
before tbo province ol Quebec will
havo a plan ol campaign diawn up in
which the railways, contractors, settlors, huntors and thc general public
who make use of the forest areas will
play their parts for safeguarding
against fires. Tho railways have been
asked to figure out thc cost of replacing steam by electricity, and Sir
Lorner Gouin has' hinted tbat bc would
bo in favor of granting no charters
for new roads in northern Quebec nn
loss they were equipped with electricity.
There have been intcrmitl.'nt campaigns against w|iistling ol mg boats
on tbo l.m him.' canal in (he midillo ol
tbc night, thero have beta siren.ious
objections to the railways sh mting

cars in tho wee small hours al thc
morning, there have been rompi liuts
laid bcloro tho city council concerning
tho n liinnn uud his horrid disturbances in taking up tho garble at
down, but there has never been a t iim-
paign against noise in thc dovn town
district of the city in the offines where
mon work their brains for bread. But
Iho noiseless office is on thc way just
the same. In some of the l.ttfit ullices where fifteen nnd twenty typists
aro cmoloyed hammering away at
their machines from morning till
night, the noise is deafening. I mil
lately it was accepted as a icccisary
evil, but now, through tbo ingenuity
of man again times have changed.
Thc noiseless typewriter has mode ils
appearance und where once a bubel ol
clicks and clacks resounded" through
an office ull is us quiet und as Imn
imi as a church. It took a long time
for Samuel 1'. Kidder, an American,
to ucrfect a noiseless typewriter machine, und longer for thc invuitiou to
reach Canada. Now the demand for
them is so great that it is impossible
for thc factory at Middlclown, Connecticut, to supply half the required number. To one of a mechanical turn of mind tho noiseless mn

As a result of a seizure of something like seventy live thousand gallons of tto iiui eggs here thc other

E. P. I.nchapclle, ono ol tho controllers und ulso a member ol the provincial board ol health, says he believes
that Montreal bus been mode thc
dumping ground for bad lood, refused
by other cities, for years. The eggs
were put up in tins for sale to thc
bakers and samples of them tested by
the city's innili i showed thut one
