Lady Henry Somerset's Successor.
An account-of the life and surroundings of the Countess of
Carlisle, who was recently elected to the Presidency of The
World's Women's Christian Temperance Union, appears in The
New Idea Woman's Magazine
for March. It will be remembered that this was the office held
by Francis Williard for some
years before that distinguished
woman's death, and that she was
succeeded by her close friend and
disciple, Lady Henry Somerset.
It appears that the new President brings to the post a considerable amount of: family, social
and philanthropic prestige, as
both the Earl of Carlisle and his
son the Hon. Geoffrey Howard,
who is a member of the British
House of Commons, are well-
known supporters of the temperance cause. Lady Carlisle is
also known for her domestic tendencies, and advocacy of the
progress of women generally.
The following extract gives some
suggestion of her character and
point of view:
It is said of the Countess of
Carlisle that she would rather be
known as "Mrs." than "Lady."
She believes so thoroughly in
woman's advancement that she
has engaged women to fill many
posts usually occupied by men.
Women are on duty as footmen,
butlers, gardeners, and even as
hostlers. She predicts the time
when women will be on an equality with men in the conduct of
the affairs of the nation as
well as of the affairs of the
household, and in the industrial,
business and professional work
of the world. The day when
peace will reign through the mutual co-operation of all countries
is, in her view, certain to dawn;
and she looks .upon the, world
no't as a segregated group of individual lands, but as a united
family of nations. With the
Countess of Aberdeen and Lady
Henry Somerset, the Countess of
Carlisle ranks as one of the most
businesslike women, the most active in politics and the most eloquent in platform speaking of
Great Britain.
The Dakota Liar.
We clip the following modest
talk from The Carnduff Gazette.
Although no comment accompanies it we presume that our valued
exchange would have us understand that the statements are
quite applicable to the vast areas
of Saskatchewan.
"Yes, sir" resumed the Dakota farmer, as the crowd of agriculturalists seated themselves
around a little table, "yes, sir,
we do things on rather a sizable
scale. I've seen a man on one
of our big farms start out in the
spring and plow a straight furrow until autumn, then he turned around and harvested back,
we have some big farms up there,
gentlemen. A friend of mine
owned one, which he had to give
a mortgage on, and I pledge you
my word the mortgage was due
at one end before they could get
it recorded at the other. You see,
it was laid out in counties.
' 'And the worst of it is it breaks
up families so. Two years ago
I saw a whole family prostrated
with grief-women yelling, children crying and dogs barking.
One of ray man .had' his camp
truck packed on seven four mule
teams and he was going around
bidding everybody good by."
"Where was he going?" "He was
going half-way across the farm
to feed the pigs," replied the Dakota man.
"Did he ever get back to his
family ?"
"It isn't time for him yet. Up
there we send young couples out
to milk the cows and their children bring home the milk."

Great Specialists Stomach Catarrh
Though often they fail to give even
temporary relief, Mr. W. Seymour of
Huntsville, Ont., cured himself with
Ferrozone. "My trouble" he says
"was chronic catarrh of the stomach.
There was constant bad taste in my
mouth, I was costive and unusually
nauseated before and after meals, I also had a knawing sensation in the stomach. Ferrozone gave me great relief,
and I also used, Catarrhozone -which is
good for catarrh. Although it took a
number of boxes of 'Ferrozone, I got
back my health and today am quite
well." For stomach catarrh, indigestion and kindred disorders nothing excels Ferrozone. In a thousand cases it
has proved a wonderful success. Try
it yourself, 50c per box at all dealers.

This Is All Right
The people of the States are passing in great numbers across the
invisible boundary���Canadians in
the east, Americans in the west���
and in thousands of homes they
and their children are looking
backrfrom American hillsides to
Canada and from Canadian
farms to the American fatherland. I ask you my friends, to
join me in a sentiment to the
Canadian settlers in the Canadian west: May they ever with
loyal memory do honor to the
lands of their birth. May
they ever with loyal citizenship do God's service to the countries of their adoption.���From

J. B1IRTT MORGAN, - Editor and Proprietor.
Having devoted all the space
and time to a discussion of tne
circular incident of the recent
election which seemed necessary
in order to make clear our position,, it was not our intention to
make further reference to it until
some new developments should
appear in connection therewith.
However, the letter from Mr.
John Oliver of Delta, which we
publish in another column, raises
a point or two which cannot be
allowed to pass unnoticed.
A careful perusal of this letter
Nhows that it consists of two
parts,���'first, a categorical denial
of the-fifth charge in the circular,
and second, reflections upon the
writer. As for Mr. (Hirers testimonial to the correct habits of
his friend Mr. Munro. we may say
that this is only what one might
expect. Without impeaching the
veracity of the member for Delta,
we submit that his evidence can
scarcely be regarded as unbiased.
Others may attach whatever importance they choose to Mr. Oliver's assertions of his friends' innocence, but to us they are simply worthless. He may "know
no justification" for our statement, and we are not in a position to challenge his confessed
ignorance, although it does seem
remarkable, but we are in a position to assert most positively
that we do not share it. Not ev-
en the member for Delta himself
can hlame us for not accepting
the testimony of ignorance as
against the testimony of positive knowledge.
But thechief thing which troubles Mr. Oliver, as well as many
others of Mr. Munro'schainpions,
is the anticipated difficulty "to
rind property upon which to realize for damages and costs in case
of a suit." It is certainly startling to say the least to hear
wounded honour begin to prate
about damages. Be that as it
may, we submit that it will be
time enough to discuss this
phase of the question when the
court shall have awarded them.
In the meantime to help matters
along, we shall be pleased as
soon as suit is begun by Mr.
Munro or Mr. Oliver or both to
deposit in a chartered bank such
a sum as may be agreed npon by
our respective solicitors as necessary to cover the costs of the
action, provided the party or

The Credit System
We have given the credit system a rest for the past few weeks.
This is not because we were getting tired of the subject, but because we thought it somewhat
difficult to make much headway
when the roads have been so bad
that the farmers could not market their produce, and the trains
so tied up that elevators could
not be relieved. It is advisable,
however, to keep the matter in
our memories, and as it is drawing near convention week, the
retail merchants should prepare
to discuss the matter in all its
Whatever difficulties may be in
the way of a complete cash system, we have reached a stage in
this country where the merchants
must realize that the more they
go into the credit business the
more formidable will the menace
of the mail-order houses become.
The secret of the success of the
latter is in the fact that they buy
for cash, sell for cash and are almost independent of circumstances.
As long as the retail merchant
will sell for credit he must make
allowances for loss through bad
debts, and the difference can only be made up by charging his
customers more than if he sold
strictly for cash, And as long
as the country store-keeper will
sell goods at credit prices, the
farmers will be tempted to send
orders to the catalogue houses.
The fight against the large departmental stores has commenced, and the retailer throughout
the country will have to get busy
on a systematic plan of overcoming the inroads being made upon
their trade by these concerns.
The merchant who sells on
credit works from twelve to
eighteen hours a day, part for
himself but most of the time for
the jobber to whom he pays a
percentage, because his capital is
all out on credit and he is not
able to take advantage of the
discounts. The farmer is the
best merchant in the world. If
he has anything to shell he wants
cash for it or its equivalent in
merchandise. No thirty or sixty
or ninety days for him, no credit
for time and eternitv with the
farmer, but when this man comes
to town the merchant meets him
at the door, slaps him on the
back, shakes hands with the
woman, kissei the baby and
loads the farmer's waggon with
goods, at the same time watching to see if his competitors are
envying him and his big business.
Then the vacant store is rented
and along comes another merchant who "knows how"" to do
business and the people around
the country eat up his stock and
in a short time it is a repetition
of the sheriff and the vacant
store. Suppose a banker with
$20,000, to $50,000 should loan
every Tom, Dick and Harry two
to three hundred dollars without
notes or security, the credit merchants of the town would demand a commi ssion to examine
into his sanity���forgetting all
the time that their merchandise
is money.
Buy for cash, sell for cash and
you can cat like a tramp and
sleep like a horse. Worry will
not Dotheryou. and neither the
sheriff nor the catalogue house
will give you any trouble.���The

An Irreligious rake
Our attention has just been
railed to ii (lions fraud which luis

upon thousands ot credulous

and the United Stwtesi The imposition lias taken the form of
the chain-letter nuisance, which
has heretofore been used chiefly
to raise money for both worthy
and unworthy objects. Ah will
lie seen below the letter states
that it is sent out upon the recommendation of Bishop Lawrence, who is quoted as the author
of the prayer, which is in each
case enclosed and the text of
which we print herewith.
In the first place the whole
thing is a fake pure and simple.
Bishop Lawrence never indited
the prayer and knew absolutely
nothing about the scheme until
he was deluged with letters of
enquiry and criticism regarding
the matter, since which time he
has been working' double shift in
an heroic endeavour toiindeceive
the people who have been imposed upon in his name. This
unholy origin of the movement
is sufficient to condemn it, even
if it were not totally lacking in
merit in itself. In point of fact a
little sober consideration will
make it clear to the most simple
minded that the subject matter
is both blasphemous and absurd

well-intentioned perhaps, which

The mother who has acquired the
habit of keeping on hand a bottle of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, saves
herself a great amount of uneasiness
and anxiety. Coughs, colds and croup,
to which children are susceptible, are
quickly cured by its use. It counteracts any tendency of a cold to
result in pneumonia, and if given as
soon as the first symptoms of croup appear, it will prevnt the attack. This
remedy contains nothing injurious and
mothers give it to the little ones with a
feeling ot perfect security. Sold by H.

Navigation Opens.
Under the combined persuasion
of gentle rains and spring sunshine the frost king has at last
relinquished his grip upon the
mighty Fraser, and again the
cheery sound of the steamers'
whistles is heard in the land.
Early on Monday the word was
gassed around town that the
leaver would be up that day.
Some were skeptical of the report, others were hopeful, but all
were expectant, and it is safe to
say that every ear caught the
first glad sound of the boat's
whistle about 5 o'clock-the first
in seven weeks. The effect was
electric and the whole place very
soon took on new life. With over
sixty tons of freight to remove
to the town, the draymen had a
busy night, and have been kept
at it pretty steadily ever since.
Delayed shipments oi' all kinds
have been pouring in, and many
of the merchants are guessing
what they are going to do with
Christmas stock just now to hand.
Perhaps never before did the
people realize as now how much
they owe to the boat service, to,
Westminster.   ,
But one man in the place was
not pleased Monday night, and
he no less a person than Capt.
Gardner of the Beaver. After
a heroic effort to get his boat up
with her cargo, he found the
road from the landing obstructed
by fallen limbs and brush from *
the sleet storm of two weeks before. By the time he reached
town his temperature was several
degrees above ncrmal, and had
he fallen in with the Reeve or
any of the council somebody
would have been entertained.
