Heal eitate in North VtRPQHYer hai
been steadily improviig during the
mat fair weeks, several successful
deals having lately bean put through by
loeil   brokers.
One block Which WM subdivided ouly
recently, block 187 In tbe North Lons-
(Jil» district, has besu completely sold
out to buyeri who bought only oro or
two lota apiece. Prices averaged (600,
Which wu considered a (airly satisfac
tory figure. Thirty Iota insi.lo tho
oity limits, located in P-1.. 181, fetched
(18,000, and these Iota will bo resold,
the buyers say ,at a shirp advance 1st
er in the winter. Other parti of tho
pity anil diitrict have beiu nearly ai
active. Loti bave changed binds all
^trough and tha prices which were paid
by tho buyers in practically every cast
Included substantial advances over ng-
tires paid previously. Tho coming of
thu Second Narrows bridge hai served
to generate a renewed activity in real
estate around the vicinity of what wi|l
be the northern md of the bridge,
Many loti havo already changed bauds
thero. Lynn Valley is perhaps uot ai
active aa it hu been, and West Capilano property is not so brisk ii it wai
earlier in tho season. Brokers dealing
tbere look for a resumption of heavy
trading later in the season. The district taken ai a whole ii busy.
Oin COUNCIL W SESSION
A brief session of the eity council
took plats at the city hall last evening,
Mayor McNeish presiding.
Tbe pill of correspondence was less
formidable then usual and the several
items were quickly dealt with.
The diitrict council through their
clerk, Mr. J. O, Farmer, wroti intimating tbit they were in negotiation
With tbo H. (!. Telephone Company witb
regard to tbe installation of a pbone in
tha new municipal officii at Lynn Valley. Tbe company bad informed tbe
council that tbis could not he within
• month and tali deity being necessary
tha diitrict lutberitln aaked the city
oOuncil to allow tbem to be put on a
.party line with thl city'i waterworks
intake until a separata telephone was
installed. Tbii request wu referred tu
the waterworks committee.
A complaint from Messrs. .lohn
Wylie and Wm. Hall u to tho condi
tion of Hub street west which in tbe
nutter of mud ind narrow planking ii
inconveniencing ''eighteen bona tide
British subjects" was referred to the
Board of Works.
The minutes of tbe Joint Hirbor Im
provement committee which met on
Oct. JNIh in the Vancouvor city ball
wire read ami ordered to be filed.
Ward, Burmolster and Von (iruoven
it/ wrote advising the council that they
had cleared block 2.11 A and tho lane
extending through it. Thii bid been
done at a cost of tlOO and tbe linn
uked for the payment of saute, pointing out tbat the price could not be eon-
aidered exorbitant If, however, tho
city would open up L'titb street along
tbo face of this block aud block 230A,
tbe firm would abandon tbe above claim
There wu alio a lit claim outstand-
ing for the clearance of St. Andrew'i
Ava. and this claim alio they would
abandon. The matter wai referred to
tbe lanes committal.
Tbe city engineer, Mr. Hancs, reported tbat in carrying out tbe Queeaebory
Avenue grading where the II. C. Flee
trie tricks ire on the street allowance,
tho polea were standing partly >n tha
road allowance and the onipany vu
commencing to lower tbem. Mr. llaues
racoiiimeuded that the company bo re-
(jpeited to move the poles back to tho
curb grade. Further, that tbey ba uked lo place a plank crossing over tbe
tricks on 17th street it tho intersection of Quecusbury Ave. where tbe new
gride bu been made. Tho council formally adopted the above roeommcuda-
tion.
The city engiueer alio .reported thaf
ha had examined the plank road on
Williams Ave and in tbi portion of
the city north of lot 818 and iu the
Lynn Valley trail and had found that
several sections of tbii roid was practically impassable. The cost of remedying would ba tWO. Mr. tfanes recommended tbe expenditure of this ium
if It be tbe intention of the council
to beep this road in repair.
Mr. Alexander Robertson, of McAl
pine, Kobertson k Co., applied In person
u • ratepayer for temporary extern to
hit property oo diitrict lot Hi, without which the 0. C, Electric Company
bad aaid that they could not givo him
eiectric light. Mr. Bobertaon urged
that the council give the wetter <w>-
iLieretioo, sinco bli eebtmt wu one
which promieed to develop a targe area
of the city.
The mayor intimated that the wort
reauired could not bi properly cerriid
««i tm ym ornt to iM mpm 9
involved.   It might more reasonably be
undortakeii in tbi ipring.
Mr. Itoberlion pirslsted howovir (hit
"half a loaf wti bettir thm no broad
and perhaps on the strougth of thit
proposition, the council commissioned
the city engineer to accompany Mr
llobertsou to the property in question
and report ai to wbat temporary nnnum might be reasonably adopted.
Tbe council' then approved the plana
for subdivision 800, district lot 848.

While the final figures (or German'''1
total .foreign trade in 1010 havo bom
published, final figures of tho trade
between Germany and tho varioui
countries have not yet appeared,
Tbe value, in 1,000 marks, of (hi
total esport and import, excluding
precious metals, for the last five years,
il pt follows:
Import     Export
1006    :...   8,031,600   6,860,030
1B07       8,749,076   6,846,384

1910      8,034,186  7,474,661
These corrected figurei exceed the
provisional official estimate!, given in
a preliminary report, as far ta the export is concerned, by 7,.600,000 marks,
aud as far as tbe import is concerned
by as much as 325,000,000 marks
These discrepancies are explained by
tbe fact that in the official preliminary
publication tbe provisional totals are,
as far as the export is concerned, to
a very limited extent only calculated
upon tbe basis of the valuea established for the preceding year, but entirely
so far as the imports are concerned.
Tbe steady growth of the German, foreign trade may be exemplified by the
fact that iu 1880 the value of tbe import amounted to only 3,803,400,000
marks, and that the value of the export to only 3,933,400,000 marks The
two values together (foreign trade as
much) amouuted in 1880 to 6,700,000,-
000 marks, but for the year 1910 tbey
um,uml to 16,400.000,000 murks. The
rile in tbe three decades, therefore,
amounts to almost 800 per cent:
I'anada may expect to hear from
Germany iu the near future. Hi competitors for Canada's import trade will
do well to keep an eye 011 that enterprising ami progressive nation.
8H0BTA0E   OF   MILLING   WHEAT
IN UNITBD STATB8
With regard to the position in the
States i'onsci|Ucnt on the shutting out
of free Canadian wheat, says the Western (411, it is pointed out that 1(10 expectancy of the passiug of the measure
was an important factor in shaping
values, ami that farmers partes! with
their wheat early nul in liberal ijuan-
lilies. The Unitod States, it is stated,
is now on a domestic basis. The shut-
ling out of Canadian wheat, on which
the great milling interests of tbe spring
wheat states were counting for the season, makes the United Stiles domestic
."illinium 1 strong oue, and the mills,
deprived of choice Canadian wheat,
will bl forced to buy bird winter
wheat wherever it can lie secured.
American reports speak of the pro-
nouured bullish sentiment now prevailing, and in view of the bullish nature
of the world's statistici! situition, iug-
grst tint tlie market will undodbtedly
work  higher.

Hi Luck of
The Lotusites
Aa Original Short Story
By Jf. PEIOB HOLLAND.
I
if
I.
"0, my prophetic iouII" wailed
Bicbard Salmon, bli features screwed
into a freniled grimace. '
"Vour uncle, I presume!" obierved
bit wile, witb in idea of completing
tbi quotation. "Dicky dear, wbat ia
tbe matter witb yout"
Dicky dear roie to bit feet witb
something like I soli of despair.
"You've beard of Uncle Bobirtf"
"Why, of course," uid Minnie Salmon,
"You've beard be'i a bachelor with
pota of moneyt"
"Soma of wbicb be will leave to yon
dear! Ym." '
"Don'tl I can't bear it!" murmur-
*A Dicky, witb hit hand on his brow;
tbia, wltb a Hidden fierceness, "You
know be'i in India!"
"Yai."
"Well, he lia't."
"Dicky, dear," hii wife proteatid,
"you break newi like a acboolboy."
"I'm blunt, but I'm truthful," aaid
Dicky, "Uncle Hubert'i iu England,
and, according to tbii infernal letter,
anticipate a few dayi in hii nephew'■
delightful company. ' Why on earth
couldn't tbe bounder remain in
India!"
"You're a bit bard on your uncle,"
aaid dainty Mi.-. Salmon, "we all of
ua enjoy a change.  Uncle Bobert—"
"Look here, .Minnie,'' interrupted
Bicbard, "I might ai well dcacribo tho
whole situation in a nutshell. Uncle
Bobert'i a bachelor with an intenae
si isl ike fnr women. I fincy he'i bad
lome 'affair' in bit extreme youth, and
it'i left bim frightfully bitter. However, it'i.a dead cert be won't con-
■idler it proper to appreciate the ez-
iatence of a Mn Bicbard Salmon."
"Oh, Dickyl"
"It'a a fact, my love. You tee, I
quite thought tbi old roprobate would
nover leave India again, ao I didn't
notify him respecting bit nephew 'i
marriage."
"Dickyl" '
"Just io, It wai very wicked of
me. However, I've blued my chance
entirely. Hell leave bit confounded
money elsewhere."
"Ob, no, no, nol"
He'll diclari I've deceived bim and
then tbe blow will fall."
"No, no,'Dickyl"
"Oh! blow your 'no's', Minnie!   I
'lun'i mean tbat etactly my lovo. You
know what I do mean, dou't you I I'm
a bit flustered—tbat 'i natural of
course Now, don't weep, for heaven'»
lake.
"I'm not weeping, I'm thinking,"
uid Mri. Salmon.
She thought ai the majority of women think—tbe forefinger of her right
band severely placed in tbo middle of
ber pink check. She nodded and
ihook her bead alternately, apparently
in ' mi, imu of tbe varioui pointi of
ber reaioning. Eventually ihe imilcd
in a auperior manner, and Dicky un
dentood at once tbat tbe problem bad
been solved on bit behalf.
"Weill" be queried.
"You must tiko ri ium ss in Pen-
church," declared Mri. Silmon.
"NevorP.' pronounced Dicky.
"You musl, you iball. It ii tba
only way," said Minnie dramatically,
"It'i ridic'loui."
"Dicky, tbere arc two "u'i" in ridiculous."
'If there wero fourteen it wouldn't
alter my opinion.
Tbii lounded deciiive, but Mn. Salmon didn't tbink io. She wbccdled
aad coated, uml "pointed out" and
insinuated, until her husband'i brain
wai a veritable whirlpool. Her "don't-
you see's" and then you understands"
were victorious in tbe end ind Dicky
bowed a reluctant head to her superior iuitincti,
The Silmoni bid been married a year
—a i-liuri, deliriously happy pear, spent
contentedly and brokenly iu a comfortable littlo cottage erected juat a
mil' from Pencburcb. Dicky posscu-
ed a bicycle and rode backwards and
forwards, bil office being in Pencburcb
Iiii bouri wiro lenient, and, ai head
clerk to a firm of loliciton, be could
do moro or leu aa he liked.
Consequently be bad rented Lotus
Cottage at a prepoiterouly low rate,
and, witb tbe assistance of Minnie,
lod a pure rustic Miatencc. Tbey
drew water 'rom a pump aud bought
eggl tnd butter from Miu Griffcn, a
decidedly plain ipimtir wbo occupied
tbe cottage next door. A quiet and
respectable maid, unbeautiful but very
''willing" did all tbe heavy work, and
Mri. Salmon bad what ibe fortunately
considered "an ideal time."
Dicky endorsed tbii lentimcnt uml
tilled tbo air witb imprecautions wheu
tbe moment came for bim to bcave bii
trunk into a trap and relinquish for
an indefinite period bii wife, bit homo
ind hii maidservant.
"Good bye, my darling" be murmured, claiping Minnie to bim n if bis
journey waa to extend into tbe Dark
Continent, "goodbye, look well after
yourself, wou't you I—and, for tbe
thousandth time, "confound Uoclc
Bobert I"
II.
The bronild ami portly gentleman
whom Dicky greeted witb exaggerated
profusiou, expressed entire utiifaction
with bii uepbcw'i "blcbclor quar-
ten."'
" There a only one thing misiiug,"
be observed flicking bii watch chain
witb au immense forefinger, "and
tbat'a an clement of untidlneu. If
I 'd been here ai long as you have, mi-
boy, tbore'd have been an accumulation of pipes. Don't be too tidy. It'i
effeminate, and for great Cacur's like,
don't bo effemlntac."
Dicky nodded and gulped. He bad
only arrived tbe prcviouKnvcuing and
everything looked abiurdcdly uoat.
"Bicbard," uid Uncle Hobcrt,
"what'i your attitude towardi women!"        t
Dicky bluibid
"1 avoid unmarried ladici like the
plague," bo declared.
"tiuud," pronounced Uncle Bobert,
witb cvidont utiifiction. "Bicbard,
I'm glad to bear it. Por myiclf I've
avoided 'em, married or unmarried, for
aixty years. One only have I known
intimately."
"Indeed!" uid Dicky. Uncle Bob-
ort'i "iffiir" evidently.
"And ibe waa your grandmother."
"Obi" uid Dicky.
At tbii point Uncle Bobort commenced a icriei of bigoted anecdotes, all
directed againit the abominable creatures of Ibo opposite icx. Dicky indulged iu corroborative nodi and tbe
evening waa ipent in blissful harmony.
Tbe following morning Undo Bobert
sillied forth to inspect Pencburcb. Incidentally hii thought! wandered to
cheese and bii portly penon waa aoon
st ruining lbc floor of a grocer'i abop.
Tho manager of the cbeeae department sliced a chunk of primo Oor-
gonxqla and tbe transaction wu completed. •
"Shall I aend it for you!"
Uncle Bobert uid "Pieaae."
"Thank you, air—wbat addreu did
you uy, lir!"
"I didn't my one," Uncle Bobert
obaeryod, "but I dou't mind telling
yon that I wiab that cbeeae to be lent
to Mr. Bicbard Salmon-"
"Ua, yea," commented  tho cbeeae
man, '' Mr. Biibard Salmon of Lotui,
Cottage,  it shall  bo aent  at once,   .

"Lotus Cottage I" repeated Undo
Hubert, "never beard of tbo place,"

MUNICIPAL AUDIT0B8
Tbe suggeition made by Alderman
MeKuc at a recent aession of tbe city
eouneil, witb reference to governmental
auditors for municipal booka, is ono
which deserves very careful consideration. The exact form in which the
chairman nf the finance committee pre-
aanted the matter, waa by suggesting that the council might profitably
consider tbe question of the advisability of securing an amendment to tbs
Municipal Clauses Act, whereby tbe
government would appoint a number of
municipal auditors renin whose members the respective municipalities
would be required to select their auditor!
Whatever the difficulties which
might be met with in the practical
working out of tbe plan, the theory
develops possibilities which manifest
diatinct advantages aud benefits.
A great deal has been uid with re
ference to the desirability of evolving
aome uniform system of municipal accounting, ll.uiler the present system,
np two municipalities follow the same
method in this respect and it is invariably necessary to master the details of
euch system before the financial statements can be properly compared. I!u-
der a uniform system of accounting
the significance of tbe balance sheets
would be tbe same in all instances and
comparison would be easy. If tbe auditing of all the municipal bookl
throughout the Province were performed by a few competent accountant,
under government appointment,..each
having charge o( u sufficient lumber
of municipal hooks lo call for the 'le
votion of practically his whole time
to this class ot work, these uuditOM,
in their collective dipacity would constitute the very best possible medium |
for the (.i.i Inni eliiiiiiiltion ol differ-1
cn" - of method uml the evolution of
a uniform system, of municipal accounting throughout the province, or of a
system approaching as nearly to strut
uniformity us il is possible in piunni-
pul bookkeeping,
Tbis expedient would likewise pro
mole uniformity of duties upon the
pert ol i.Uilltort I'uilcr the present
system, in some instances, Ihe auditor
merely cberki up the entries in Ihe
books uii'l in t|ie balance sheet, us prepare! liy the city accountant, in other
instances the auditor takes upou him
self the duty of preparing Ihe balance
sheet from the books, while in yet
other instances the auslitor may as.
."inin the right to make entries iu the
books or ulleralions in Ihe system of
bookkeeping as he may deem requisite.
Its placing all the municipal audiliug
in elmrgc nl' u few governmental uu
dilors il wouhl be a very simple mat
ter for tbcm, by conferring together
to failure the duties of thu municipal
auditors lo a "minion basis throughout ihe province,
ll is further evident lhat a duly up
poii.lcil governmental otto ml would
carry wilh him a degree of authority
as ai'siilor, euusideruhly greater lhan
Ibat which oriliuuriiy attaches to Ihe
position under Ilie present system,
As the mutter stands ol present, the
auditor Is in most cases a well known
resiiloil accountant, v.ho is very probably on I'ihis nl personal friendship
with Ihe aldermen or Ihe city officials
en.I there is accordingly a more or less
pronounced tendency lo look upon Ihe
dmies of the auditor as more qr less
perfunctory, as something which ll nee
essary os a mailer of form. Op Ihe
other hand, il the auditor wero bncktd
by Ihi' weight pf governmental up
poiat#i'iit, he wouhl inevitably carry
Kith iim a ecus* of authority ai be
aiita/ci any municipal tUee, in his official capacity.   The situition Would bl
cial duties at a branch office of a
bank or other financial institution.
Again, through steady application to
tbo practice of municipal accounting,
tbe government appointees to tbis portion would become specialists in their
line with the result that they would
rank aa a board of exports witb reference to municipal bookkeeping ami associated matters, in which capacity
they would be in a position to render
valuable servicea ai occaaiou might
arise.
The above are a few of the considerations which go to show that the
suggestion of Alderman Mcltae has in
it elements of usefulness which, (unless
tbe proposition should develop difficulties to offset tho same, render it well
worthy mature and serioua consideration.
THE QOLDBN OPPOBTUNITY
Among Ihe persous who have recently made provision fpr old age when
it conies are Iwo sisters, Bged respectively ;;.i ami lit years. They have purchased from the Canadian Government
a last survivor annuity, that is an annuity which will give them together au
income of $600 a year so long as Ihey
both live, and to be continued to the
survivor so long as she-tin*. The cost
of this annuity, i'i,it i.ti.'i. ha\ been invested at i' per cunt, und hut brought
iu less than Hit annually, ^with the
■ Inin iilt> and annoyance of reinvest-
ment. The annuity becomes payable
when Ihe younger sister attains the age
nt' iiii, and should both die before that
time the purchase money will be refunded to Iheir heirs wilh il per cent,
compound interest. Kadi is now earning her own living, and the sum paid
is tlm fruit ol their labors for u number of yeurs. They were thus able the

strong delegation, including pruiniueui
Sau Francisco, Portland, Tacome, Seattle, Belling lm in and Spokane mop.
These pen W>" nllm' prepared to urge
the arijension pt the I'acific Highway,
which now stretches from Vancouver,
3. 0., to Tie Juana,. Mexico, a distance
ef 8,0011 miles. The scbome favored by
the Highway enthueiasts is tho building of the Pacific Highway through
j British Columbia, via Hazolton, and
,on to the Yukon.   ,.., /
] The extrusion of the Canadian High-
;-wuy with the object of eventually making it a good road from the Atlantic
'to tho Pacific will alao command much
of tha attention of. the moetings. .He-
solutions asking tbe fedora) government to assist in thie Hchemo will be
introduced during tho convention.
Otbor mattera to lie discussed in-
■"'liiilr tbe placing of eigne and guido
jiosts along all travelled roads, tbe
standardizing of legislation regarding
the ipocd of automobiles ami the "rule
«f the road" and the planning of a
campaigu in favor pf better roads.
Prospecta for tho succcse of the
tliiinl Bonds convention which is to be
held in Now Westminster on Novembor
.3 and 4 are most encouraging, and
that the meetings will have an important bearing on the movement for tbe
improvement of existing roads and Ihe
building of now highways is now
assured.
.In addition to the representative
members of the Pacific Highway Association who will make the trip to tho
Royal City for tho purpose of taking
part iu the convention, a large number
of men who arc showing tbeir interest
iu the movomcut for the first time will
also bo prcsetit. Delegates from
boards of trado from all parts of the
province, representatives uf automobile clubs from as far east as Winnipeg
and ns far south oa Portland, ami |0V-
rial members of the provincial parlia
ment will be »!»QBg time taking an
active p»rt in the Aitotn-.
An lnv!st»tiw to ettenfl the Westminster convention has been extended
to p. p. Sands nf Seittle, who successfully Aw* tin Ant entomoblo

HB DIP NOT ADVERTISE
nivalin's there a man with soul so .l.-.-nl.
Who never tp himself bus ssid:
'My trade nf lets is getting bad,
I'll try another ten-inch sdl"
If there be, go mirk him well,
For bim no bunk account shall swell,
No angels watch the golden stair
To welcome home {he- millionaire.
Tbe. man who never asks fpr .trade,'
By local line, or add displayed,
Cares more for rest than worldly gain,
And patronage but gives him pain.
Tread lightly,  friends,  let  no  rudV
sound
Disturb-bis solitude profound,
Here lot bim lie in calm repose,
Unsought except by men he owes.
And whet) he dies, go plant bim deep
That nothing may disturb bis sleep,
Where no ru.le clamor may dispel,
That <|uiet that 'he loved so well
And that the world may know its loss
Place on a stone a wreath of moss,
And on a stone above "Here lies
A fossil, who did uot advertise."
Tbat young man who thinks lie is
poor because lie has no bank account,
little understands the value of (lod's
free gift of health and strength, little
appreciates the fact that the brightest
and best in tlte country are self-made,
uud come to Hie notice of the world
from jusl such beginnings. Not by
idly moaning that tbey arc poor, iiut
by going carefully to work, perfecting
themselves in tbeir chosen pursuit!
und becoming so useful to those about
tbem that their services are always in
demand, whether it be on the platform,
in the shop or in tlie kitchen, for all are
honorable alike.

UNSELFISH JOURNALISM
Mr. H. S. Doig, 01 well known Irish
journalist, writes iu the "Dublin Evening Mail". There may be two opinions as to whether journalism has advanced or receded in tbe last generation. Ocntlomeu of the old school
wbo brought up on newspapers which
adopted an exceedingly portcntious
manner ,snccr at the press of today,
with its weakness for leading the bai
tallions of public opinion from behind.
But if anyone doubts tbat the press
of today is at least more enterprising
than the press of a generation ago, let
Ihem dwell for a moment on the exploits of the Odessa "Courier". Tbat
engaging journal feeling that it ought
to do something more for ils women
readers than to feed them on tbe not
altogether succulent fare of fashion
plates and paper-bag cooking recipes,
bus organized a lottery for their benefit. Ami the prize is no less than a

TREAT YOURSELF OCCASIONALLY
Do not go through life witb tho idea
tbat you must always practice rigid
economy and never allow yourself any
of earth's delightful luxuries.
If you keep sucb a point, of view
forever before your menial vision you
will make poverty for yourself.
If you believe greater comforts are
coming to you ,tbey will come.
Of course, common sense is to he
used in these matters. No one possessing this quality is expected to spend
money needed to pay debts or to provide broail for carriages or parlor ears.
But there are hundreds of people living in ovory community who • have
formed habits of frugality and economy, and who after reaching a position where the small pleasures ami lux-
uriei mas be enjoyed fear to indulge
thomsclvcs lest it seem cxtravtgunce.
Sucb [loople never fully enjoy life
ins matter bow prosperous they become,
and tbey limit their source of supply-
by this attitude of mind.
Miserly iijeas of the source of supply
lead to a miserly life, uo matter what
prosperity comes through continual
economics.
The world is full of boauty, comfort,
luxury and pleasure. Train your miud
to believe that you arc conuected witb
all tbis great reservoir and that it
will flow into your life.
Turn the faucets now and then ami
receive some of the good things as you
go aloug, instead of waiting until you
can inundate your life with the whole
torrent. Take little pleasures today
ami expect larger ones tomorrow.

the street. Uude Bobert shouted
"Hel" and ihe cab stopped,
"Ijiitus Cottage about a milo out
of Pencburcb, Batterly wiy," bswled
Uncle Bobert, quoting tho clieeSe mau.
He stepped iuto the vehicle, tho
horse gave a groan, and a tediously
slow journey was commenced.
111.
Miunie, after Srying to be polite to
tlte unpicturesi|uely severe Miss Orif-
fen, picked up lier basket of eggs and
handed a shilling to tho disagreahle
apinster. "(lumi morning," sbe said
brightly and passed through the cottage door. The suu shone warmly and
(be whole appearance of the neat little garden luggeslod happy ami delightful things.   TM ■ 11 wondered how ou
earth any one could be so borrid as
Miss (iriilVii on sucb a glorious day.
slu- paused to admire ber neighbor's
flowers, and was inwardly coveting
tbem, when a large bronzed countenance appeared uver t|ie top of Mies
Oriffen's hedge.
"Morning," saisl in, li- llobert,
rudely. (Tbii was an infernal nuisance, hi commented to himself, being
conventionally agreeable to women.
'Good morning," said Mrs. Salmon.
'Is that Lotus Cottage I" asked
Uncle Robert, using bis stick as a
pointer, "if so, who lives there I"
Minnie looktil quietly at the questioner for a few impresiive moments.
"If you wilb for information," she
remarked, "I must ask you to be more
rc.-peelt'iil. You're mistaken if you
think I'm I dairymaid."
She looked very charming in her dignity and Uncle Bobert felt a bit
aahamed.
"I'm sorry, madam," he muttered,
"1 never thought fur a minute you
wore a dairymaid. Of course not. You
imw eicoie me, I've been tbroad for
liveral years ind have got out of touch
with Knglisli customs."
Minnie's hurt gave a tremendous
leap.   Thii w»l Dicky's uncle!
"Using a neighbor of Mr. Salmon'i"
continued Untie Bobirt, "you will
probably know something about him."
"Ve-et," murmured Minnie, still in
a itaU of bewilderment.
"Ii hi married I"
"Oh. s-aal"
"Slngli!"
"Wnit in absurd question!"
Uncle Bobirt looked foolish.
"Yet, yet, it it; of courtc it 111 But
you mutt bear with me. Tell me now,
do you luppcn to know Bicbird Salmon intimately!"
Minnie pondered.
"Ob, no; she answered, feeling terribly wicked.
Uncle Bobert give a ludden jump.
"Then why Ibe dev—I beg your
pardon, madam, I wished to say why
in the name of logic are yuu wearing
bis photo" In your locket!"
Minnie ti.ni.--i rusy red ami clutched
c&nvulsivcly It the offending article.
"Ob, please," the gasped, "tbiswas
—wai given to jne lung ago, every
thing Is different uow.   He- he—"
"You were lovers, ihf" demanded
Upcle   Bobert  sternly.
"Ye-T-yes, once," said Minnie.
"Aud you're not now!"
>*N-ao."
"He left you in tbi lurch)"
"Yei-no."
"Thit meaut yet. The scampi and
you still wear his confounded locket!
I believe you're hoping he'll return to
you."
Perhaps the humor of the situation
struck Minnie tadd.nly, for ibe imifid
tremulously ud nodded.
"But,"    persisted    Unci*  Bobirt,
f
talked and-^sd-^b, ,a*ar!"
Uncle Bobert pddsd \p sympathy.
"So as a means pf escape, the jackass took lodgings in F»pb»rcbf Pahl
ThSB, with a apprising suddenness,
."Good morning,. M|ss-um-I don't
know your name but what does that
matter! I'd only forget If it you told
me. I'm very much obliged to you
for your information, and look ben, If
you don't mind me saying so, you're
much too good for Blejlard, my advice
is—take his infernal photo out of that
locket and stick tbs King in! Good
morning,"
IV,
Tbat evening Dicky bad a dreadful
half hour. During dinner. (which his
uncle ordered for seven-thirty) a signi-
caul silence reigned, Uncle Bobert
said "yes" and "no" and "thank
you" and that wss the limit of bis
conversation. At the conclusion of tne
meal, however, things were mightily
different. Uncle Bobert lit a cigar aud
leaning back in his chair regarded
Dicky meditatively.
"And how do you like Lotus Cottage!" he demanded.
This was the commencement. There
followed such a lecture as Dicky had
never heard from a public platform.
Uncle Robert, as tbe minutes passed,
warmed to his text, and gave opiuion
after opinion with increased vehem-
auce, his. investigations and their results. His summing "l1 was appalliug
to say the least of It.
"You've been faithless, Bicbard,"
said Uncle Bobert, "faithless to awo;
man far too good for you. She's the
flrst female I've taken to at first sight,
I pity ber Bicbard, tbe poor deluded
lady. There she is, Blchard, ekeing out
a lonely existence, hoping you'll come
back to her. You scoundrel I Now look
here. You know that I'm rich, snd
you're hoping to be the same when I
give up the ghost. But you shan't bo,
Bichard, unless you fulfil your pledges,
like a proper Salmon and redeem the
family honor. You must marry your
neighbor! She's expecting it, and I'm
expecting it, and you've got to do it,
or not a penny of mine ever becomes
yours. I shall leavo Peneburoh tomorrow and shall travel to London where
I intend remaining for fully six months
I dou't want any further discussion
on this subject now or at any timo
luring that period, but if I haven't
beard from you six months from now,
stating that you and that lady arc man
and wife, you know exactly what lu
expect!"
And Uncle Bobert stalked from the
room.
Dicky clutched at the air. "Great
Jupiter!" he muttered, "here's an unholy mess. I 'm somehow expected to
marry Miss Griffon!"
This   union, however,   was   never
found necessary, tpt, py events hava
already shbwft Chance, with eympa-
thetic tboughtfuiness,. plaeed ¥iwis
in her neighbor's garden at precisely
the right moment, and SB lent assist:
ansa to a process of deception which
was never confessed or laid bare,
Fivo mont|iB later Uncle Bobert was
seated in bis UpA.qp chambers, fondling a letter which he had jnst received.
It was short but to the point, and,
judging from the recipient's pounteii-
iiiu-e, wholly satisfactory. Tl|is WSS

"More attention is being .lirecteil
tp Ito itoto pt affairs prevailing in tile
coal mining districts of Eastern British Columbia with the uppriiuch of
winter's fiorcn blasts. No real pffort
his been made to operate thp properties since the trouble came to a c|i-
max six months ago add it would be
practically impossible to supply the
demand it the country were entirely
dependent upon that source for its fuel.
Jbe othor coal mines in the western
provinces bave been working to the
lhi|lt of their facilities however anil
tbey have been helping to relieve the
shortage. The greatest factor in ensuring a supply has been the action
of tho Dominion government in sui-
pending/the cuitom rates on coal from
tho Unitod States. By means of this
regulation a big trade from Pennsylvania Illinois and tbe Western States
has been worked up. Governments
and muuieipsl administrations have cooperated in securing stocks of tbe precious fuel ami have insisted tbat individual customers should replenish
their bins during tho period of line
weather. Meanwhile the strikers in
the far west have begun to roalizc
thst they are not growing rich by remaining away from tbeir regular
spheres of employment. They have
been discusisng the prospect of arranging the settlement which should have
been brought about six months ago.
Tbey arc disturbed about the question
whether their unions shall or shall not
be recognized. The mine owners are
apparently conecrneil aboul the same
thing. It is a matter of indifference
to both these elements whether a million people on the prairies suffer hardships from the rigors of tho winter.
Who euros ss long as the union is or
is nol recognized!"

HUMOE8 OF THE PEESS
Mr. C. A, Han mun. iu "Tho Inland
Printer" enumerates some amusing
typographical errors. "Proofreading
on the moilern daily paper," says the
writer lu preface, "has long since
ceascil lo be one grand sweet song,"
ami Indeed Mr. Ilartman saddles (lie
writers themselves witb the respon&ibil.
ity of many of tho errors that occur,
accusing the scribes of writing what
they do not Intend through carelessness but which tho operator dutily sets
forth os written. Tbe following are
some of the "bulls" referred to:
The king of Sinm was born iu 1853,
ami has rcsigucd (reigneil) for 40
years.
There is a Long Island fare carter
(forecaster) yoi lo be beard from.
Jn lite i.uls CD's a very old bride
(bridge) ou spiles still remsiucd.
A competent nurse (corpulent purse)
was produced, out of which the fine
was paid.
Wheu the salted (sacred) codfish ap
pearesl off Oyster Bay.
Stroug indorsements of new testament (treatment) given daily by tbe
Hew York public.
The stale ihould provide witnestci
whoso ovideuco would not be under
suspicion us being colored by the size
of their feet (fee).
Acting under orders the cishier said
be hsd soused (so used) the check
when it came lit.
Children's Court—Another room in
the new building will be devoted to a
looiiii i ':■ pest (rest).
The prince's claim to lbc thrown
(throne).
Of course, many of theic errors were
caught iu the resiling, but iu the lasl
hour, before going to press, when every
employee of the composing room is
keyed up lo the highest possible pilch
an occasional "bull" will get through.
While some of these errors ure positively silly, others ire rather funny.
For instance, no ,one would'evcr suppose that the federal government was
engaged in handling call, either dead
or alive, but in the Fishing Notes on
a well i.i u.-.ii Hew York sporting pn
per, tbe following appeared: "Tbe
govcrumcut planted 21X1.000 tomcats
(coils) in Jamaica Bay" The same
paper, in another issue, staled concerning I championship bowling match;
"Alex. Duubar wai hauled out of the
fireplace ffirst place) by Mr. Pump for
the championship gold medal."

to iiiiit.mil with in ils religious miles,
for instance:

Tbe operator'! duties ire to answer

would inevitably block other calls just

So the operator is I ruined to use
ocrtiin set phrases relating strictly
to her work. Any questions outside of her functioni must nKcsinr-
ily be referred to people having iu
ebargo special classes ol "irre

A iniimi.'V consideration will show
that unleu the operator's duly wire

overestimated. According to tha Montreal Hit bs has Voiced bis decision
that our railway employees, particularly ia tbs west, sre usually uncivil
and lonietiraei ignorant, that our newspaper editors disagree, in their diagnoses of Iocs' conditions; that our school
System over educates our youths and
units tbem for the hard work, which
' is obviously the lot of most of us; that
whits men should now be doing the
IfeUgh work performed by Japanese labor in British Columbia; that our western real estate boom is inHated and
that those who count upon it to b/ing
them riches will lie disappointed /that
prairie life for those who havo come
out from Ireland is a hand to mouth
distance ami that young Irish women
who have Immigrated in tho expectation of flnding husbands and homes have
been disillusioned; that Canadian husbands treat their wives with greater
harshness than du those of Kngland
Snd Ireland; that the average t'anadi-
an ie surly and uncivil and nut inclined
to give auy information, and that when
o young Englishman has lived here several years he easily and rapidly falls
into the ways of the Canadian ami
treats womenkind ami men with the
s inn- measure of surliness as his Canadian confrere, that our lii|uur laws,
our "'. P, It. hotels and uur pulitics
have their points, but that as to the

rather not talk about them except
to "watch with jealous   care her de
