Honorable gentlemen of the Semite :
Gentlemen of the House of Commons:
Since our last meeting the empire
lias been called upon to lament tho
demise of her lute majesty Queen
Victoria. The universal regret and
sympathy with which tho tidings of
her decease have -been received
throughout the entire 'civilized world
afford the best testimony to tho manner in which sho has at all times discharged her duties, both as a woman
und a sovereign, throughout her unprecedented ly long and glorious reign
gnd 1 will venture to add thut in no
portion of her vast territories were
those sentiments more i profoundly
felt than in tho Dominion of Cumuli..
You will, I am sure, tako early action to express your sympathy with
the royal family in their bereavement
and your loyalty to tho new sovor-
The Canadian contingents in South
Africa havo nearly all returned, and
it affords mo a very great gratification to bo ablo to assure you that
tho valor and good conduct of our
Canadian soldiers have called forth
the highest encomiums from the sev-
eral commanders under whom they
have served during the arduous ron-
The union of the several provinces
of Australia iuto one confederation
upon lints closely resembling those
ou which our own dominion hus been
established, marks another important
step toward the consolidation of the
outlying portions of the empire, and,
I am well assured, will call forth
your most sincere congratulations to
the now commonwealth.
Acting on the advice of my ministers, I had, previously to the great
grief which has fallen upon the
tion, tendered an invitation on behalf of Canada to His Royal Highness the Duko of Cornwall and York
to conclude his Intended visit to Australia by one to the Dominion of
Canada, and I am glad tu bo able to
inform you that his royal highness
has been pleased to signify his acceptance of the same. I still hope
that that visit may not be conoid ;r-
ed impossible. 1 have no doubt uf
the warmth of tho welome with
which he will bo received.
My government has lear��tid wi'h
greet satisfaction of tha progress be*
ing made with the P.iclllc cable
scheme, and I tru-st titut no'.ii'ng
may occur to delay its eaily completion.
Last summer I made a tour
through Canada as far as Dawson
City, and was everywhere received
with unqualified proof of devotion
and Loyalty. During my Journey I
was, from personal observation,much
impressed with the great activity
displayed In the development of tho
mining and agricultural industries of
tho country, and with the substantial increase in its population. The
thrift, energy and law-abiding character of the Immigrants nre a subject of much congratulation nnd afford ample proof of their usefulness
ns citizens of tho Dominion.
It gives me great pleasure to note
the excellent display made by Canada
al the universal exposition in Paris.
The lino quality and varied character
of Canadian natural und industrial
products in evidenced by tho number
of awards won in nearly overy class
of tho competition. It is a remarkable testimony to the effectiveness of
our cold storage transportation facil-
ties thut fresh fruit grown in Canada

-lianlioUt* uuu  iliu Nuiiumcm,
From timo to time tho Nor'-We*
Farmer has called attention io Ut
fact that British Columbia Is th-.
natural market of tbe prairies
stretching east frci.i iho Rouktes to
the Red River valley. It ie our position, geographically, that makes
this so. It is a long haul to Montreal, and when there our farm products come into competition with
those uf Eastern Canada, and later
again with those of the world's markets. The Dominion government haa
["been fostering the export of farm
products to the old country for the
benefit or the Eastern farmers, but
Western farmers havo provided for
them right noxt door a natural market in the mining regions of the
mountains. Like our rapidly dev?l-
oping country, thi_ market is a growing one, and owing to its mountainous nature good agricultural land Is
scarce, consequently British Columbia will never be able to supply the
demand for farm products from its
ever-growing mining districts. Here,
then, is an opportunity for Western
farmers, and we think every effort
should be made to supply this market and thus retain the natural advantages we possess.
In past    issues    The Farmer    has
dwelt more particularly    upon    the
market in tho West for dairy    produce and the need for exercising the
greatest care in manufacturing    and
sending only    the    very best article
possible.   But it 1b   not    alone    for
dairy produce that thero is a market.   Beef,  bacon, eggs  and poultry
are also needed in large and increasing quantities by the minors. Seeing
that this market should bo ours, we
ought to endeavor to supply all Its
needs.   Already western men are supplying beef, and pora ie coming forward from several points, but both
these lines are capable of great   development, especially the latter,   as
large quantities of hog products go
into British Columbia markets from
both Ontario and the United States.
With eggs and poultry we have done
next to nothing.   The market is now
being supplied with goods from Ontario and from the States lying immediately to the south of British Columbia,  and oven from those as for
east as Iowa.   Should we allow this?
Should we not try to meet the wants
of our customers as far as possible ?
The poultry industry is sure to grow
in the West, and especially so after
the    lessons   farmers    have bad the
past season of the returns that   eto
to be had from them.  Why not follow it  up ? Why * not   grow more
and feed them  so as to   meet
the demands of this    market '>  Why
let    American eggs,    which    have a
duty of 8 cents a dozen to,pay, capture the    British Columbia market,
when   we should   hold   It   for ourselves ?     We believe    British Columbia merchants would    much   rather
purchase their goods in tbe Canadian
West, if they   could got thom.    But
they cannot.   As showing    how   far
snort we come of meeting this    demand, we may state    that recently
ten carloads of eggs wore purchased
in Iowa for British    Columbia markets.   If it is   necoisary    to    bring
form products post    our own door
from Ontario and trom the Mississippi river in the United States, and if
they can afford to pay u freight rate
of $1.04 per 100 pounds from   Iowa
on eggs and a duty of ii cunts a doz.
as against a rate    (com    Manitoba
points of $1.25 per  100 pounds and
no duty, surely there should be    nn
excellent opening here for us.
The weak place in our present sys -
tern of disposing of our farm pio-
ducts, especially butter, eggs, ond
poultry, Is the slow way i.i which
they reach the wholesaler s hands.
Stocks accumulate ii the farmer's
hands until ho hns inou^h to muke
it worth while to market"thom. Then
they He In the country .storekeeper's
bands until he has enough to make
a shipment to the wholer.aie merchant. There ie room here for a list-
tie co-operation. We believe both
the Manitoba and Territorial governments could and are willing to
assist in developing this trade by devising or assisting somo scnemo for
the quick gathering and shipping of
farm products before thoy lost thoir
freshness. The Dominion government
propose to gather eggs from tho farmers sending cream to the creameries by means of the cream wagon.
Why cannot the local government do
something along similar lines ? It
would do much to develop the egg,
poultry and butter industries and to
educate fanners to market such i-cr-
ishable products quickly.
We believe the C. P. R. will be
found quite willing to do anything
they can to foster and develop trade
with British Columbia points, and
to help keep It within the country.
The Dominion Express company, too,
will be found anxious to extend Its
trade all it con, aod therefore willing
to give the best terms possible to
secure this business. If it should be
found that freight and express rates
are too high, we believe that a conference with the C. P. R. authorities
of those Interested would result In
satisfactory results being secured.
Western farmers have not realized
tho great possibilities of the markets
to the west of them, nottbTr bave
thoy realized the great possibilities
that lie beforo them In supplying this j
market. We need to wake up and'
tako advantage of our opportunities
or In a few years when we want to
cater to our natural markets, we will
find thom already supplied and connections established that will be hard
to undo.���Nor-West Farmer.

While tbe events described in our lost
chapter were occurring In the .south,
Elixuheth Lossing, who was spoken of
in the conversation between Claymore
end Suiter, wns in the north, preparing
lor a visit to her Uncle Claymore's reni-
denee, at St. Augustine, Ko.-lda.
She had, only a few days before, 1 'ft
a Young iittdieu' Seminary in the west,
where her education iu the li ght r
brnnclie* of study had been cumpl^ted.
Upon her arrival home in New Yor!��
City ahe found her ftither.Thomas Lowing, much the same  in habits aud appearance, as be had been live yenr* be*
lore,when she hnd left him for the west.
He was a poor music teacher lu that
great metropolis, passing ou through the
different  stages of  u   miserable ex.se*
ence, and not even yet reconciled to lhe
death of his Moved wife, which had oe-
enrred IU years previously.    His wife.
Vivian Howlnud, before he married her,
bad  been u  noted    vocalist,  and  hnd
amassed quite a 1 oi tune liefer ��� he;* dea h,
but Lousing scorned to use a dollar of
her cash, lent liis conscience should accuse him of Nolneing himself with money
for  the irreparable    loss    her    death
brought  to his  heart.    Pnrt  of  Ur*,
Lossiiig's fortune, bnd, after ber mar
riage.been Invested in a California mine,
on the recommendation uf her brother,
Bert Howlaml, wbo was a mining engineer,    and the said investment  tied
beeu made In the name of  Elisabeth
Lousing, the prima Anna's infant child.
When   both  Bert   Howlnud   and  Mrs.
Lowing were   deed,    Thomas Losslng
would not interfere lu the least witli
this investment, and bad notified Mr...
Claymore, who wns a sister to the deceased vocalist (and who wns named
co-execntor with Thomas Loaning in the
dend woman's will), that she was to tn
vest alt monies left, uot include I in rhe
mine, for the benefit of his daughter,
Elizabeth Lustring, us be absolutely refused to touch a penny of It, or manage
It in any wny, giving as bis reason, tbe
one we have already given to the render.
His refusal to use any of the money
left 'by his dead wife bad caused  his
daughter much pain, and she invent!'I
many little schemes to thwart bim In hi*
purpose, such as having girl friends pny
him heavy fees for musical tuition, etc.,
hut Elizabeth's futher was too honeht
blmH>lf, sud withal   so quick   to ko
through   Elizabeth's  plan.-,  on   h
half, that her seiieme.-;   always eu..
i   In more et less of failure.
Upon her arrival home uow she thr \\
I lier arms around her father's neck, ti d
|      sobbed in genuine grief   at h*s shait.,i
II appearance.
i        "Oh, papa," she said, "I do uot bf-
.    lieve you have used a bit of that money
I sent you?"'
"No, my child,'.' be snid. "I (ou'.d not
do that.' I co.ild not use vonr mou��y
tor my wants, tt -should be me who
blionld give my daughter money.*'
"But, pupa, uow that 1 aiu to be married and to be happy, could you uot let
mc make you a little bit happy, too?"
"But I am happy;'* tb? man prot ste-1,
though his unkempt appeal ance belied
his declaration. "I put the names of two
uew pupils ou my'roll last week, an I
ibey puy lu advance."
The conversation tben drifted Into
other channels, aud soon Elisabeth
-changed her dress to assist the housekeeper in preparing her father's tea.
Bbe wus a beautiful youug girl, this
Elizabeth Lustring, nnd as she buried
herself preparing tea, she waa e picture
the looking upon wbich might well make
tbe heart of any man thrill witb admiration for ber. Tall and well built, she
had the head and face of an Ideal god*
dess poised proudly on a pair of athletic
shoulders. Her eyes were brown, and
tender In their light, and her hair was
the color of her eyes, but uf a darker
hue. Tbe prettiest feature of her perfect face, however, was ber mouth. It
funned n perfect Cupid's how, nud even
when she was angry, which was teldom,
hei mouth seemed to smile. She had a
host of suitors, some attracted by her
���uealth, of course, but she had others
who would have regarded It as a taste
of heaven to hare gone to thi' altar
with her If she hud been penniless, but
she wus loyal to the man whom her
parents bnd promised her to. uud rejected with kindness uud dignity all
other lovers.
After ten, nud when she nnd Jior
futher were again alone together, ber
marriage was discussed.
"I have a portrait of James," said
Lousing. "I received It through the
post last week. 1 think he Is looking
eien better than wheu I saw him last."
"Oh! papa, let uie see it, w.ll you,
The portrait was brought and showed
ns far as appearances went a fine-looking specimen of manhood. Indeed he
looked worthy of the girl wbo was be*
lint bed to him.
A beautiful Hush suffused tbe girl's
face ns she examined It, for It was the
likeness of au extremely fine looking
young man.
"I think be looks a little like the ports-nit of Enama," said the girl, to cover
ber agitation
"I bave noticed tbe likeness myself,"
replied Losslng. "And he Is just as flu*
a fellow as he looks. He Is tbe ouly
man in the world I think worthy of you.
my beloved daughter. I think after I
have seen you married to him I eoul-1
die in peace.'*
The girl's arms were instantly aronnd
the man's neck's.
"Oh, papa!" she said "you shall not
tulk like tbat. If you talk of dying I
will not get married at all. He Is not ee
line n man as my papa, I know tbat, nu
mntter now fine be Is."
The father caressed his daughter wlt.'i
e love no words could utter. "You are
a beautiful woman now, Eli7abeth," he
said, "nnd I think yo i hare yonr

It not tbe usual custom?"
"It Is, my child; but lt wu your

"Forgive me, pnpa, I forgot that yon

tlie great white plague. One-sixth of
ull tho deaths occurring in Canada.
annually are due to tho ravages of
thia terrible disease. Its victims are
found among all classes; rich und
poor alike succumb to its insidious
advance. Only u few years ago the
victim uf consumption wus regarded
as incurable, and horror stricken
friends watched the loved one day by
fade away, until death came us a
merciful release. Now, however, it is
known that taken at its earlier
stages consumption is curable, and
that by a proper care of the blood-
keeping it rich, red aud pure���those,
who are predisposed to the disease
escape its ravugus. Consumption is
now classed among the preventiblo
diseases, and thou who arc pale,
easily tired, emaciated, or show any
of the numerous symptoms of general
debility should at onco fortify tlio
system by enriching and purifying
tho blood���thus strengthening not)
only the lungs, but all parts of Uie
Among those who have escaped a
threatened death from consumption is
Mrs. Robert McCracken, of Marsh-
ville, Ont. Mrs. McCracken glvos lier
experience that it muy bo of benelit
to some other sufferer.   She says :
"A few years ago I began to experience a genera,' weakness. My
appetite was poor; I wus very pule;
was troubled with shortness of breath
and a smothering feeling in my chest.
Besides theso symptoms 1 became
very nervous, at times dizzy and
faint, and my hands and feet would
get us cold as ice. As the trouble-
progressed I began to lose flesh rapidly, und in a short time I wus only
a shadow of my former self. I had
good medical treatment, but did lot
got relief, and as a harsh cough set
in I began lo fear that consumption
had fastened itself upon me. This
was strengthened by knowledge
that several of my ancestors had
died of this terrible disease. In this
rather deplorable condition I was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
I at once procured a supply and had
not taken them long when I noted a
change lor tho better. By thu time 1
had taken six or uight boxes I was
ablo to move around the house again
and felt better and stronger in every
way. 1 continued the use of the pills
until I had taken a dozen boxes,when
all my old time strength nnd vigor
had returned, and I wus us well us
ever. During the time I wus using
the pills my weight increased twenty-
passed',' ___ ^veral years havo since
torn of my former tr8B i/?.ot, *. S&
itself apparent, so that I think I am
safe in saying th^t my cure is por-
manent. I believe Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills saved my life, and I strongly
advise ailing women to givo thom n
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills ure u tonic
and not a purgative medicine. They
enrich the blood from the 'irst dos-
to the lust, and thus bring health uml
strength to every organ of the body.
Tho genuine pills nre sold only in
boxes with the full name, "Dr. HH-
linms' Pink Pills for Pule Poople,"
printed on tho wrapper. If your -Idler cannot supply you send direct i o
the Dr.Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont., and the pills will be mailed post paid at 60.cents n box, or
