SEVENTH ANNUAL FUNFEST of VANCOUVER PRINTERS' BOARD of
TRADE EVENT in INDUSTRIAL HISTORY of GREATER VANCOUVER
Two Hundred Organized Printers and
Friends Give Themselves up to Big Day
of Organized Jollity
at Bowen Island
Picnic
Eight years ago, the present Printers' Hoard of Trade of the City of
Vancuuver was eirganized (although
under another name) and has been in
continuous good working order since
lhat dale. Eight years age,, Vancouver's printers operated their shops
without system, without fraternal
ambitions, without great artistic ef-
lurt, with little knowledge uf the real
business side of printing, lu the utter
dissatisfaction eef the buyers of printing and to tbe unfortunate end that
the average Vancouver printer usually kept neck and neck with the
pleasant gentleman, the sheriff.
Eight years ago, then, the employing
printers uf Vancuuver were emancipated.
Mr. E. C. Wilson, local manager
uf ihe American Type Pounders
Company, was lhe man who initiated
the organization idea among the prin-
lers, anil  Mr.   Wilson  was one 'if the

picnic held Saturday at Bowen Island���ihe Annual Funfest uf the
Board e.i Trade. This big yearly festival vvas an enormous success, proving that system is just as valuable in
the business cf arranging successful
outings as ii is iii the business oi
operating successful industries. Anil
ihe modern idea uf operating a successful industry is tei turn out pro-
ihicis at a prolit. selling them lu lh,'
consumer se, that he may prolit too.
Laying aside costs, preifits, anil the
shop generally, the Seventh Annual
Picnic was an event frum which time
may be recorded. Ils success was a
high tribute tu the executive council
��� if the Beeard t, 1'rade and to the
members generally. According to the
reports in the daily press, "a spirit
eef good fellowship characterized the
occasion." there were uver twu hundred persons directly or indirectly
connected with the printing ufficcs uf
lhe city on hand, and as one happy family, they spent the summer day in
ihe woodlands of Bowen Island.
In Vancouver, the printing industry
has been raised from an inconsiderate

The South Vancouver Wolves encountered sume harel luck in their
ball game with the Hillcrest team on
Tuesday. July 8, on the 23rd Avenue
school grounds. The final see ere of
the game, which was one of the
closest seen in Seeuth Vancouver this
year, was 5-3, the Hillcrest nine being on the long end of the score. In
thc first inning each team secured one
run, and from then on, until the
eighth, Ihe see .re remained the same.
In the eighth inning, however, the
Hillcrest boys were enabled to gather
in four runs, caused by a couple of
poor decisions by the umpire, while
thc Wolves obtained only two tallies.
The batteries for the two teams were,
feir the Wolves. Grimmett and Ross;
for Hillcrest.  McGeer and Wade.
AWAKENING OF SOUTH VANCOUVER LIBERALS
Liberalism in South Vancouver,
which has been lying latent for some
time, is awakening, and there are indications that the near future will see
it asserting itself with some vehemence. Organizations are springing
up in the various wards, and Liberals
and others who usually take an interest in public affairs are developing
party enthusiasm.
One of the first of a series of
Liberal gatherings lo be held throughout the Fraser slope has been arranged for the evening of Tuesday,
July 22. at Ash's Hall, Fraser street.
The executive are extending a particularly hearty welcome to the ladies
to attend this gathering, for one of
the   chief   items   on   the   programme
will hi' address on "Women's Rights''
by Mrs. Ralph Smith. The other
principal speaker of the evening will
be Mrs. Charles MacDonald, formerly
of the Vukun,, who will take up thc
subject of the "Liberal Platform in
Canada."
Mrs. Ralph Smith is a most talented
lady, well informed on the politics of
the day. Though a suffragette. Mrs.
Smith believes in moderate action,
and believes that the cause of women
can be advanced better by education
than by revolutions.
>ft It is likely that Mr. James A. Kerr,
Reeve of South Vancouver, will preside at the meeting and there will be
musical entertainment during the evening. TWO

Don'l  yuu  be  that  kind uf cattle,

You musl  he a booster rooster,
Crow and boost leer all you're worth.

If things just don't seem to suit you,
And the world seems kinder wrong,
What's the matter with a boostin.
Just to help lhe thing along;
'Cause  if  tilings  should  stop  a-goin',
We'd be in a sorry plight,
You just keep lhat horn a-blowin',
Boost'er  up  with all your might.
If you see some other feller tryin'
For to make some project go,
You can boost it up a trifle,
That's your cue to let  him know
That you're not goin' to knock it,
Just because it ain't your "shout,"
But you're going to boost a little,
'Cause he's got "the best thing out."
If you know  some feller's  failin's,
Just forget 'em 'cause you know,
That  same  feller's  got  some  good  points,
Them's the ones you want to show;

I this was the last place on earth I
thiiught of meeting him. He bad a

his back. Why, his own brother
would hardly have known him. On
the return journey we got our kettle

Since Reeve Kerr made his eastern
trip, South Vancouver has made hi--
lory. 11 shows us the rapid changes
that can take place within a short
time. Among the neurogenous
growths of association thai have
sprung up in South Vancuuver another lias tu be addeel tu th.' list, viz.,
the Industrial Development Association e,f Semth Vancouver. It has a
beautiful sounding title, and it is Imped its aims and ambitions correspond
with  ils  name.
Racegoers in Minoru Park were
treated lo some extra added features
this week, met the least of which was
a race between iwo of the leading
laelies of the Hanky Panky Poo company whieh opened at the Imperial
Theatre un Thursday night. Thc
ladies were' astride horses in a special

PURE MILK  FOR THE PEOPLE
Health Inspector Pengelly is drafting a new milk bylaw fur South Van-
e'eniter, and su a remedy is likely lee
lit    applied   to   eme   of   the     greatest
curses the people have had to suffer
���thc scourge of an impure milk supply.
The question of the milk supply is
one of utmost importance to the
health of all people, and particularly
infants, Purity of source, cleanliness
in handling and quick ami careful
transportation are the cardinal points
if the safety e,f the baby is to be considered. Failing these, pasteurization
is nnc of the safeguards. The proper application of sufficient heat kills
dangerous germs. This is not suggested as a cure feer all the ills of the
milk business, for 1111 amount of pasteurization will make bad milk good,
but by destroying disease germs it
renders practically safe the milk
which would otherwise be dangerous
lu health. [1 is a temporary makeshift for dealing with milk of doubtful quality;" A careful and adequate
inspection system should eventually
obviate the necessity fur pasteurisation.
Iii many infant milk depots in the
l'nited States milk is pasteurized in
the feeding bottles. The bottles are
filled with milk, then corked and placed in a chamber where the milk is
raised to the pasteurizing tempera-
lure either by steam or hot waler.
The milk is then cooled gradually by
placing the bottles in water at lower
temperatures until they can be placed
on ice-water. In this way the bottle
of milk cannot be reinfected, as it
will remain  sealed until used.
Dirty bottles are probably lhe
greatest source of bacterial contamination of milk. Bottles often contain millions of bacteria after they
have been washed and this is an even
more alarming condition in the case
of feeding bottles. A dirty bottle may
give your baby such a tremendous
number of bacteria that severe illness and perhaps death will ensue.
You should protect your baby's food
and milk supply even if yuu arc not
so particular about your own; the
baby has a far inure sensitive alimentary tract  than  you have.
As any grade uf milk deteriorates
quickly, even when placed in the refrigerator, consumers should use milk
within twenty-four hours after delivery and should keep il cold during
that time. Very often in the summer months milk is delivered at 2 ur
3 oclock in the morning, ami is ex-
posed i'i lh.' sun from sunrise unlil
6 ur 7 o'clock nr later. During that
time lhe temperature uf the milk rises,
and the bacteria increase rapidly. The
use ief light insulated boxes will help
to keep the milk colli, provided it is
iced un the waggons. In Semth Vancouver .women should demand freun
milk dealers assurance lhat the milk
they sell has been produced ill a sanitary milk plain, ami by the mosl
sanitary methods. They should demand high standards and see thai
they are maintained leer thc benefit
e.f ihe families dependent upon their
care in Ihis directum.

South   Vancouver  Assessment
Editor "Chinook" :
Dear Sir,���I see in my letter re
assessment in South Vancouver, as
published in yeiur last issue, two mistakes, which I consider very Important,
First : It was une thousand dullars per acre the Court of Revision
cut off West's assessment uf a farm
in an adjoining section instead nf one
hundred as published.
Second : Unimproved lots, iu
Hall's sixty-eight acre subdivision on
Bridge Streel are met charged "wild
land tax," although only assessed at
one-fourth their cash selling value,
according lu the evidence of the
Municipal  expert   witness.
I   have   been   bringing  ihis   state  of
affairs tu the attention "f the Court
eif Revision iur three years past, without  results,  fnr  reasons best known
In    tlleeSC    interested.
ROBERT  McBRIDE.
July  7,  191.1
Tn   the   Editor  uf  the  "Chinook" :
Sir,��� Never during lhe whole history eef South Vancouver was lliere
such a need fur calm judgment as at
lhe present time. The unfortunate
money stringency has placed the
municipality in an awkward predicament, but bad though that position is,
il is superior tu almost any other
municipality in Canada. During such
a crisis as we are passing through il
requires sure and steady hands to
piled the ship through lhe troubled
waters. The citizens uf Smith Vancouver can either materially assist
lhe ship to Weather the sturm ur retard its progress, but that - it will
eventually Overcome all difficulties
no one will dispute. Tn say the least
the people al the present moment art
suffering from nervous panic. While
it is the duty of all responsible citi
zens to calm and allay this spirit, 1111
fortunately we find the reverse prevailing. Many are taking advantage
lu fan and kindle up suspicion am
��� listrust nf all Councillors and officials.     Meetings  arc  being  enlivened.
and wild statements ami accusations
are   hurled   and   banded   about,   men
readily believe the stories they hear
Instead uf calmly going into the pros
and cons uf the charges made at these
meetings, men who ought to know
better come forward with the most
idiotic motions imaginable for the
sake of a little momentary notoriety.
When the bowl is broken there will be
a hundred men tu tell you how you
could have saved it from being
broken, but not one will come forward
who is able to mend it. If men attending these meetings would calmly
think over the motions they move
before they put them to lhe meeting,
the majority of such motions would
never be put. It is a pity that at such
limes as these men should be found
Irying to make capital out of misfortune. Workmen and business people
are suffering from the notoriety the
municipality i.s receiving through indiscrete activities of men who ought
In know better. A bad position is
apt tei be made mist serious. The
municipality's financial plight is merely temporary, and is such as all corporations, municipal and private, arc
bound to experience from time tee
time. Even today the clouds arc
clearing, and it will take but a few
days for the easier conditions which
arc beginning to obtain in tbe big
money centres of the world to bc felt
right here in South Vancouver. Iu
the meantime the citizens should be
of good cheer, and show their loyalty to their home community by a
temperate and forbearing deportment.
Sincerely Yours.

Tin- question of the minimum wage
has cropped up again, thii time in
S, jut li Vancouver Councillor lltun-
phriei related a ihort nine ai;". ,-,t ;,
Board of Worki' meeting, the' st..ry .,i
a man whom he had recommended
leer employment t<< the wanl foreman. He iiik given a job it wai found
he wai unable tee produce the neces-
lary quota of work, and he wai laid
e,fT. Councillor Humphries at the
next meeting ihen moved that the
I Engineer enquire into the sliding
icale alleged to be paid in other municipalities, anel report a- to iti practicability.
The question comes nn periodically
and ni��� ,ie -., at timei when the
amount <��� f work to be done li snail
and lln' lalieer market overstocked, li
ii a lituation which the average day
laborer on the roads with pick and
ihovel looki "ii with a degree of apprehension. Too often has it been
said that anyone can take up a pick
and ipadc and start and displace dirt.
To a certain extent this is true, but
it is iu much the same degree as a
man dressing himself up in a sailor's
uniform and calling himself a sailor.
All classes of work require a certain
degree of skill, and for any man at
time- of stress te, be dumped into
any line of occupation with which he
il unfamiliar and perhaps physically
unsuited and expected to produce.' the
same I,mount of work is utterly unreasonable.
This is where the danger conies
in. The minimum wage is tampered
with, and a sliding scale introduced,
and instead of the $3 a day being
hulked upon as the minimum, it takes
i,ii a new title, and becomes the maximum. The man who is physically
able and skilled to perform the various work required on the roads���and
there is no mistaking it requires a
strong constitution to stand the climatic conditions in this part of the
country���suddenly linds himself in
lhe position of being face to face with
the problem of proving himself entitled to the "minimum wage." Too
often has this sliding scale been used
as another means of reducing the already existing minimum wage, and
it behooves the workers to watch very
closely this new move in the direction of a sliding scale.
The minimum wage is reckoned the
smallest at which a man can keep
himself and family���and it must perforce be a small one���in the barest
form of comfort, and any attempt
to reduce that standard by the smallest margin shouhl lie strenuously opposed. Thc case in point serves only
to illustrate the present state of society wherein a man has to be pitchforked intei a jeib which he. is physically incapable of holding, and becomes a danger to the men already
employed.

There was a good attendance at
last week's meeting of the Trades
and Labur Council. A letter was received from the City Council asking
the Trades Council to appoint three
delegatei to go tee Victoria to urge
that the court-house site be preserved
as a park. Delegates Trotter. Camp-
hell and Midgdcy were appointed on
the understanding that the City Council  hear  the   consequent  expense.
Delegate McVety reported for the
committee dealing with the new law
relating to employment agencies. The
council gave' Mr. McVety power to
engage counsel and prosecute in connection with any breach of the law
discovered, with a view te, protecting
the workers wlm have hitherto been
ai the mercy of the employment
agencies. The city will also be ask-
iil to amend its bylaw in order tee
conform with the new Dominion regulations.
Nominations for officers were accepted at this meeting, ami election!
will lake place at nexl meeting, when
nominationi will again be in order.
Lcsl Thursday's nominations were:
For president, Delegates McVety
and Manion; for vice-president, Piper

The miners' strike <eii Vancouver
Island still drags wearily along. The
operators are being severely criticised in many quarters for the attitude
they are taking up in refusing mediation.    In a recent interview  Manager
Coulion, of the Canadian Colliery Co.
i- reported t" h.-i\<��� laid ; "If the
Minister of Labor ii coming Wi si to

nay to Convince the general public
that the mineri have good cauie for

However, it ii hoped thai Mr. Croth-
ers   will   sec   senile'   way   in   which   he
can make the mine owneri and the
workeri tne-e't with a view t'i settlement. The day has gone long bye
when an  organization  of employer!

The second report een labor organization in Canada has been issued by
the Department of Labor. Prom

A chapter of the report is devoted
to a discussiein of the beneficiary
system of trades unionism, N'ot all
the unions have reported on this
subject, but the information collected shows the wide and important influence which organized labor of
North America plays in ihis department 'if imlustrial life. The beneficiary expenditures of sixty-eight of
the  international  central  trade  union
organization! operating in the United
States ami Canada are shown to be
of great magnitude. The grand total
of the disbursements of these organization! for the lasl fiscal year reported (usually 1911-12), ii placed at

amount being 'en account of death

The report givei some attention to
m-u movements in labor organization, known respectively as Industrial Unionism and Syndicalism. The
first-named, which bai been endorsed
by the Trail'- and Labeir Congress
of Canaela, looks lei the closer federation or actual consolidation of all
craft unieeiis. Syndicalism, represented by the Industrial Workers of the
World, and which has already ligur-
ed in extensive industrial struggles
in Canaela. is opposed to old-line trade
unionism, and is described as "frankly revolutionary" in character, a state-
merrt which seems to be fully borne
"in by the preamble of thc I. W. W.
constitution.
lu addition the report also com-
prisi ��� a Trade Uniem Directory
feir Canada. Il gives the name of
every trade union known in Canada
together with the names and addresses of the executive officers. There
are considerably over two thousand
trade  uniejiis  in  the   Dominion.

chance o' gethcrin' my hiaith an' a
varied scene grcetit my cell. I never
fash mysel muckle aboot the men.
they're mare or less a common-place
lot. nae maitter hoo weel they're dressed, but the lassies aye attract me;
they have a wey o' pitten on their
claes, nae maitter hoo little, that
brings not yaer keenest pooers o' ob-
servashnn. A lassie has a nack o1
drcssin' hersel up when she's gaun tae
a picnic that maks a man wi' his
lower-bit hat look like ten cents. I
could plainly see the hobble skirt wis
aye tae the fore yet, an' when a's said
an' dune, I believe there's a lot tae
be said in favor o' them. I wis read-
in' that some o' the medical men in
Ameriky wis cxtollin' them for bein'
haith sanitary an' guid for the feet
They prevented the sprcadin' ee' hugs
an' at the same lime they were help-
in' tae correct the weenien's had form
o' walkin'. The mairricd weemen pretend tac hae an' awfu' dislike tac
them, but I'm inclined tac think it's
jealousy because they canna wear
thein thersels. I menshuned the fact
o' them bein' sac nice tae the wife
wan time an' she gied me sic a tellin-
off that I never menshuned wcemen's
clacs since. Hooever, efter I got em
hoard the captain gien the signal tae

an' it wis a bonny sichl gaun throne;!
the Xarrows. Yae jist get enough o'
the  heeat  gaun  up  tac  Bowen  fSlflnd
tae whet yaer appetite for mare.
There's nae mistakin' it's a bonny-
sail, wi' the line mountainous scenery
yae hae on the richt an' Vancoover
Island lyin' awa in the distance on
yaer left. "Disna this pit yae in min'

an auld Glcscay man. "Faith aye."
says hc, "it pits yae in min' o' the trip
deeejii tae Rothesay, an' jist the same
sort o' croud tae. wives an' bairns,
an' lads an' lassies." 1 wis feelin'
kin' o' dry. it's funny hoo the saut-
water has an effect on vac that wey.
an' I askit him if he wis thinkin' o'
gaun doon below tae see hoo the
engines were gettin' on an' hae a wee

we spent a guid half-hour talkin' awa

aboot the lower pairt  o' the ship.
Hooever. we werna long in gettin'
tae the Island an' wc wcre greeted wi'
a big bunch o' natives, as I thocht.
I had sonic visions ee' them comin'
out in their canoes tac sell fruit an'
cockynuts, a la the penny bloods we
used tac read, an' I wis mare than
dumfoondert tac see they were a'

no' muckle though, the men bein'
dressed wi' shirt an' white pants, an'
thc lassies wi' the regul.ishun hobble
an' jisl enough silk tae cover their

questyin  for a long number  o' years
tae come, an' I think the B.C. government acted wisely when they refused tae accede tae the wishes o'
the city an' tbe municipality. Vancoover city has a long wey tae go
afore she can catch up wi' the work
she's got tae dae, an' if Sooth Vancoover had been annexed under that
agreement we micht as weel hae said
fareweel tae ony improvement for a
long time tae come. Noo, I'm no agin annexashun, by nae means, it's
bound tae come in the future, but I
honestly believe we can dae mare for
o'orsels in the meantime than Vancouver city could dae. Sooth Vancouver has big possibilities afeere her.
which are only commencin' tae be re-
ceegnized, an' wance theyve been de-
veloped properly then Ml be plenty
time tae talk annexashun. I believe
the ideal wey is tae hae a central
governin' be dy. wi' lUlidiary councils
littin' in the different places tae look
efter local  affairs.
They formed an associashun ca'd
the Sooth Vancoover Development

go properly about their work they
ihould be the means o' helpin' forward the questyin o' industrial sites.

the electors. Thc object of the proposed bylaw is to
enable the council to acquire and improve park sites within the municipality and particularly to secure lhe Little
Mountain park site bei..re the option hehl by South Vancouver iu conjunction with the City of Vancouver and
Point Grey expires.
It is trusted that the ratepayer! will rise to the occasion
and unanimously endorse both bylaws. Thc one referring
to School Loans must be passed largely as a matter of
form. When presented April 2. with the interest rate at
four and a half per cent., it.was carried with a great majority. It is now necessary to place this bylaw in conformity with the other five per cents which have been
carried. With lhe people's assent to thc increase of one
half per cent, the great stumbling block hindering the
sale of the municipality's bonds will be removed. The
situation is such at present that with thc School Loans
bylaw being put in shape, the municipality will have access to $400,000 immediately from this and other issues,
which will enable South Vancouver to proceed with civic-
work. If the School Loans bylaw is not passed, South
Vancouver will bc placed in a most uncomfortable financial position, and il is in the interests of every property
holder with the good of tbe municipality in mind that a
heavy vote he polled in support thereof. Negligence on
the part of those qualified to vote will be the only reason
for the School Loans bylaw being turned down.
As regards the Park bylaw, little need bc said of it.
The facts arc that South Vancouver, with Toint Grey and
Vancouver, hold an option on Little Mountain I'ark.
This option was granted two years ago, thc value of the
land being set at $1250 per acre. Since the granting of
the option, the market value of thc land bas jumped to
nearly $5000 per acre. The Option is about to expire and
if South Vancouver does not pay her portion this magnificent Woodland area which crowns the peninsula will be
lost to the community,

HOT WEATHER MEETINGS
IN bold, glaring type on the front page of a daily paper,
wc find a heading, "Want of confidence in South Vancouver"; and those'of us who have to heart thc best interests of Se.uth Vancouver, are saddened by the article
beneath ihis caption.
Empty heads there arc in every city and community, but
from lhe wild meetings in Soulh Vancouver during the
past week or so, it would appear that we have just a
few more than our just quota. On thc South Vancouver
council there are' heads thai truly lack brains, but it is a
godsend that they don't make up the majority on lhat
board.
This "Want of confidence in South Vancouver" business
was inaugurated by irresponsible characters, and it is
being perpetuated by a small clique of men who are
not even property holders in South Vancouver. These
people gather together at meetings and blare forth grievance!  which are lor lhe most part imaginary.    The usual
procedure at their gatherings is to attack lirst the provincial governmenl and, after putting McBride and Bowier
em the spit, they pass down to the reeve and council of the
disirict, and with interspersioni of socialistic and anarchist utterances, end up by crucifying wanl foremen,
policemen, anel al the meeting, Thursday night, a whirl
wa- even taken ai  lhe municipal pound keeper
Real grievance - are aired, but ilei er a remedy suggested
Loud,  and   lometimtl   profane  language  is used,  ami   the
Btories,  written  by journalistic humorists, get  Into  the
daily pre--.   So South Vancouver is getting a bad name.
If ihe' legitimate property holderi In South Vancouver
look a more lively interesi in municipal affairs, there
would be le-s of ihis "want of confidence" publicity.
There- would be the best business men available occupying all the seals on the council board. South Vancouver
would proceed more rapidly than at present and thc proper
authorities would invoke the Riot Act I" suppress the
dangerous utterances of the agitators.
Of course, this is hot weather, and the local municipal
wat.r supply is not too abundant And in the dog days we
can expect almost anything tei happen. This epidemic of
public meltings, in spite of thc fact that we have the big
North Arm and all the water in the world within -Iriking
distance, can be traced directly to the weather.
THESE BE SURELY DOG DAYS
THli outcome of a serious dog-biting rase in South
Vancouver the other day would indicate that the council might well take official notice of the number of canines
in the municipality���and the danger to tbe public from
the presence of these animals.
It is a well-known fact that South Vancouver's population of four-legged house guardians is great. Probably
there are more dogs in proportion in this municipality
than in any other municipality in Greater Vancouver.
The time was when the dog, as one of the protecting arms
of the household, was of inestimable value. That time is
going now, however. With rapid settlement and with
more adequate police protection thc necessity of the
family dog ir. em a protective point of view finds expression in merely isolated cases. The dog of today is of the
species which is a household favorite. Today the dog is
more or less of a luxury, where' not long ago it was a
necessity.

NOTES OF INTEREST TO THE
LADY OF THE HOUSE
Fair-haired Girls with Bright Ways
The taste ill beauty changes as often as in most either things, and there
is no place in the weirld where it alters sii frequently as in London.
Absolute regularity of feature ���
Grecian nose, perfectly modeled throat
and roiebud mouth���are no lunger
imperative for the claimant of beauty.
Today the ia'.r girl with blue eyes, irregular features, ."it uptilted nose, and
a piquant expression gets more admiration than the classical goddess
who lucks vivacity.
Amongst the must popular society
beauties of the moment are the daughters of the Duke and Duchess of
Rutland, tlie eldest nf whom is Lady
Anglesey. Her eyes are very fine,
but it is piquancy, rather than perfection of line, that distinguishes the rest
of her face. Something of the same
thing applies to Lady Lovat and her
sister, who became Mrs. Wyndliant
the other day. Both have exceeding
charm of countenance rather titan features which constitute orthodox beauty.
Among royalties of the moment
Princess Patricia of Connaught is
considered the prettiest, but her expression, which changes so often, is
one of her special attractions.
Brightness of expression, fine teeth,
and hair are thought more of now
than at any time in beauty's history.
Both Queen .Mary and Princess
Mary, of course, are fair, and as a
rule the latter has a touch of blue
somewhere about her toilette. It may
be only a tiny enamel brooch���for she
is not yet permitted to wear jewels���
or it may be a blue ribbon, but it is
there to repeat the color of her eyes.
She had taken off the black frock she
wore for the late King of Greece before her birthday celebrations. It is
said to be a great trial to hcr to
wear mourning, and she feels its
gloom all the time.
The Queen herself is a great lover
of turquoise. The various gifts
Queen Mary selected for her dattgh-
yeeung lady i,,ld him, but did nut mention any special evening, and he did
not ask. The meeting had been very
unexpected, and the girl felt that she
did not look as well an usual and iu
consequence felt shy and ill at ease.
This happened about six weeks ago.
The gentleman did ne,t call, and the
young lady is sure he will not do so
until sume special evening is set.
Xow this young lady wants to know
if on her next meeting she should
mention the fact that lie has not called, ask him again, and tell him what
evening she shall expect him, nr
should it be his place tu mention the
fact to her and ask her what evening
he may call.
Xow this is as I said before a
rather difficult question to answer.
In the first place, the young lady does
not say how long or how well she
knows the young gentleman. From
her note I would gather that she does
not know him very well. Now in
this case I would advise her to be
cautious. It all depends on what kind
of a man this gentleman is. If he is
a good natured, good hearted fellow
it would not be amiss to ask him
again in a spirit of good fellowship.
1 would advise her to treat it as a
joke and twit the fellow on the fact
that he has not yet come to see her.
On the other hand, if thc gentleman is conceited and good looking
she should be very careful unless
she wishes to hurt his pride. If the
gentleman is of a shy retiring nature
(and they are rather scarce), hc will
probably wish to visit her, but as she
did not mention any special date may
not like to call for fear he might find
her not at home or else entertaining
someone  el.ie.
Of course, there is very litlle likelihood that any gentleman would refuse if a special day were set, but
if she just wants to pass a pleasant
evening she will be satisfied whether
he repeats his visit or not. But if she
is what we call "stuck" on the gentleman  in  question and  wishes him  to

Beauty Hints
To make the eyelashes grow long,
dark and curling, apply a little men-
naline occasionally with the linger
tips. It is absolutely harmless, and
beautifies the eyebrows as well.
I'ilenta soap is the most satisfactory for all complexions. It works
will in cold or hard water.
h'eir an actual hair grower, nothing
equals pure boraniuin. It is quite
harmless, and sets the hair roots tingling with new life.
The use of rouge is almost always
obvious, but powdered colliaudum
gives a perfectly natural color and
defies  detection.
To bring a natural red color to the
lips, rub them with a soft stick of
prolactum.
For tired, hot, or perspiring feet,
use a teasponful of powdered onalite
in a foot bath.
Women who are annoyed by body
or perspiration odors will appreciate
the hint that a light dusting with
powdered (white) pergol occasionally is an instantaneous corrective.
For oily complexions, smart women
are now using the natural allacite of
orange blossoms as a greaselcss
cream. It holds powder perfectly,
gives the face a cool, fresh appearance which lasts, and it docs not encourage growth of hair on the face.

MISS CHINOOK GIVES
GOOD  ADVICE  TO   GIRLS
Tei Lady Readers of the "Chinook":
This week I received a letter from
a young lady of South Vancouver,
asking me certain questions of etiquette. Now it is very difficult to answer certain questions in this connection because circumstances alter
cases. This young lady met a young
gentleman some time ago and said to
him very abruptly "You must call on
me some of these evenings." He said
"yes,"   and   asked   her   address.   The
fall in love with her, she should not
expect toei much because he accepts
her invitation. For it may easily be
understood that if a man likes a girl
he will avail himself of every opportunity to see her, and will, if he can,
call on her, and will himself name a
date that will suit her convenience.
This same young lady alto wanted
to know if fifteen years was too much
difference in age between a girl and
a   man,   the  girl   being   the   younger.
Now I don't consider fifteen years
to be too much difference if the
couple are very much in love. For
when a girl loves a man deeply and
truly she will not mind if his tastes
are more staid than her own, but she
will try and make her tastes accord
with his and will thus be able to
sympathise   with   him   in   every  way.
Now if the love part is doubtful
then fifteen years is a little too much
difference to exist in their ages. For
their tastes are liable to bc altogether dissimilar and they will be out
of harmony in every way. It is really
better and much easier for true love
to exist between two who are about
the same age, for then they can
understand each other's likes and
dislikes and can share each others
joys  and  pleasures.
Miss   Chinook.

How to be Happy
Great principles are involved in being happy, but these aside, here arc a
few  little  suggestions  that  may help
some reader:���
1. Form the habit of doing something for somebody every day. This
will enlarge your knowledge of human conditions and increase your
capacity for happiness.
2. Look for something cheery every day, if nothing more than a
flower to see, a good word to hear,
a bright thought to consider. Such
acquisitions will enrich your mentality.
3. Add a mite to memory's store.
Commit to heart a fine motto, a radiant text, a beautiful verse, or a help-

I confess thai such an establishment was costly; it absorbed several
millions, which secretly came from
the taxes levied on gambling, e.n the
evil resorts and on thc delivery of
passpi irts.
Everything has been said against
gambling; bul on the other hand,
wise and practical minds are forced
tee agree that in the present state of
society the legal taking advantage of
vice is a hitter necessity. The: proof
that people sin mid not attribute all
it- iiiliiini ten the governments of the
revolution is that even to this da*'
gambling is  a  part  of tjie budget  rijf
the   old  government  restored.
Since it was an inevitable evil, it
was as well to regulate it. so that, at
least, we might control the disorder.
Under the Empire, whose establishment, since there were thirty
thousand households to fit out with
majesties and highnesses, it vvas necessary tee organize gambling on a
much larger scale, for It,was not unly
intended to remunerate my changing   phalanxes   of   observers.
I appointed as administrator of

enough to give oul and to li ad p
t'i believe that  wherever four pi
assembled,  there   could  be   found   in
my pay eyes i" see and ear- to hear.
No  ele eiitil   >;ieh   a   belief  was  due   I'i
corruption and to the general degrad-
atii n; bul on th ��� other hand, how
many evils, regfets and .tear- had it
nol   spared?
It was in my office 1-hat the* meere
important affairs of which I myself
held the threads were settled. Of
course, I hired spies in all ranis and
in every class; I hael -Mine among
both sexes, remunerated at the rate
of one thousand and two thousand
francs a month, according to their
importance and serviced. I pers mally
received their reports ir) writing, with
a   signature   agreed   upon.
Every three months I sent my list
tee the Emperor so that there might
mit In- useless repetition, and alsei so
that the nature of the service- at
times permanent, often temporary,
might be rewarded either by posi-
tiniis nr by  presents.
As to the police abroad, ii hael two
essential objects, namely: Tu keep
watch '.ver the friendly powers and
tn excite the governments who were
hostile tn us. In heeth cases it was
ii"iipis.d of individuals bought or
pensioned close to each government
and in every important city, independently of the numerous secret agents
-tit (trail the countries either by the
minister of foreign relations or by the
b-mpereir himself. 1 also had spies
abroad.
It was moreover, in my office that
al! at: foreign gazettes prohibited in
France came: and where their contents were scrutinized and the objec-
tiemal   passages   referred   tee   me.
Through these means 1 held the
must Important threads of the outside
politics, and I prepared with the head
of the government a report by which
that of the minister of foreign relations cnuld be checked or balanced.
Thus my powers were far from being
limited to espionage.
Many plots were' concocted against
Napoleon on the Continent, bul without success. Agents were sent from
London to Bound Paris; some wen
sent  tei sound me.
Imagine the English Cabinet falling intei the snare of our police, even
after the mystifications of Drake and
nt Spencer-Smith; imagine I.eml lle.-
wick. Minister of Foreign Affairs
with secret instructions and bearing
a letter addressed to nie enclosed in
the knots of a cane!
In the letter this Minister asked me
for two passports, left blank. for two
merchants charged wiih opening mysterious negotiations with me. But his
emissary,    having     imprudently     elis-
closed himself tn the agent of the
prefecture, Perlet, base instrument
of all this machination. \itd's cane
was opened, and when the mission
and the secret were known tins unhappy young man could not evade the
death penalty.
li was impossible for such an affair
nol to leave s.enie suspicion iii Napoleon's mind; he must at least have
interred that the idea prevailed abroad
that it was impossible to atatempt
intrigue with me ami that it was the
seert of man to listen te, everything,
reserving my decision according to
the times.
This went sn far thai a few months
after the death of Vitel, having taken
from my desk a sealed letter addressed tee nie' and marked personal, I
ripened it and found it so pressing
that I granted the private audience
asked  me  for  the  next  day.
This letter was indorsed with an
assumed name, but very well known
among the emigres, and I really believed that the singer came from the
psrs m who wished tee make disclosures to me.
But what was my surprise when this
audacious man. gifted with a persuasive tongue, confessed his fraud
and dared declare himself tee me as
the agent of the Bourbons and the
envoy oi the English Cabinet. In a
glowing and rapid statement he established the frailty of Napoleon's p..wer.

Never in the history of the game

that given Saturday. Vancuuver will

A movement is now on foot whereby several well-known Victoria
sportsmen intend placing a team in
lhe Capital City to finish out th.' lacrosse season, and it is also rumored
that several of the star players from
thc Royal City will bc induced to
sign contracts.
According to the constitution of the
B. C. L. A. this is not permissible,
but the question that arises is whether
the B. C. L. A. is really in existence
or not. According to "Con" Jones,
the New Westminster club violated
the constitution on several occasions

A sliniii commotion wai caused as
I the fans filed through the gates. Several in the crowd demanded their
money hack, and Mr. Jones, speaking
through a megaphone from the t��� -s>
of lln boxes, asked if one of his
j friends would buy up any tickets

jan instant several of ihe most prominent business and professional nun

All bets should he declared off. in
the wriler's opinion. There is an "unwritten" law regarding betting to the
effect that where one cannot win he
cannot lose. As the wagering was
made on the result of the match, and
the  said   match   was   not   played,   lhe
j principals should draw down their

"There!'' said the young wife
proudly, as she deposited the hot
plate carefully on the table. "That's
the first pie that I ever made without any  help:  all  alone  myself."
"So it is," exclaimed her husband,
enthusiastically, looking it over critically meanwhile. "And as long as it
is the very first, my dear, don't you
think that, instead of cutting it, it
would be nice to keep for a souvenir?
How would it do to have it framed?"
during the past few days, but particularly when they attempted lo suspend Ton and Griffith at that "joke"
meeting on Friday. According to the
constitution, two-thirds of the delegates to the B. C. L. A. must hc present, and on Friday such was :iot the
case.
Punctually at 3 o'clock on Saturday afternoon, the teams took their
places on the field. Westminster objected to Griffith and Ion playing, but
Mr. Jones refused to abide by any
decision reached at thc alleged B. C.
L. A. meeting the day previous. Considerable wrangling ensued, and then
the "march-off."
In justice to several of the New
Westminster players, it might he mentioned that Geo. Rennie, captain; 0.
Spring, P. Fecney, J. Howard and
"Bun" Clarke stopped on the field and
were willing to play, but were forced
to hie to the club-house on orders
from Manager Gifford.
Referee Fred Ctillen, who was to
handle the game alone, faced the
ball in centre-field, and Murray racing down the field, passed to several

New Record Created
Bob Bttrman, the crack speed merchant, put up a new world's record
for the mile, in Taeoma, on July 4,
clipping six seconds off the old mark.
He did the feat in a Blitzen Beuz
car, and negotiated the distance in
32 seconds. Hc was timed by Moers,
owner of the car, and other. Although Burnian's time is not official,
still it is the fastest mile ever made
mi a road course.

Argonauts Beaten by Close Margin
The Argonaut Rowing Club eight
of Toronto, were defeated by just a
length and a quarter in the lirst beat
of the competition for thc Grand
Challenge Cup at Henley, Eng., on
July 3. Their opponents were the
Leander Crew, and, as was expected,
a close race was witnessed. The Toronto Club was also beaten by the
Reiwing Club of Maiz, Germany, in
a race for the Steward's Challenge
Cup.

Leach Cross Furnishes a Surprise
Anderson hail been a favorite in
. their   bout  on   July   4th,  at  odds  as
not light again before September, on
Labor Day.
In an open letter Welsh's manager
writes : "Now that Ritchie has demonstrated that he is a real sure
enough champion by the wonderful
game battle that he put against Joe
Rivers, there is only one blot on the
Californian's title. That big black
smear is the defeat he received a year
ago at Los Angeles at the bands of
Freddie Welsh. As Welsh is the acknowledged champion of Great Britain, Europe and Australia, a meeting between the American and the
Englishman would indeed bc a world's
lightweight  championship  affair."
While Ritchie has made no definite
plans for the future, it is likely he will
accept a brief theatrical engagement,
lasting about four weeks, and then
will bc off to lhe mountains for about
a month. He will draw $40 a performance at a three-a-day house���
$720 a week.
Ritchie expects that an effort will
bc made to match him with Leach
Cross, and if the inducements are
right will accept. Freddie Welsh
also is after him, and as Vancouver,
B.C., promoters have offered the
champion a big guarantee to meet the
Briton there early in September,
Welsh stands more than an even
chance of getting thc first crack.

MODERN BUSINESS IDEALS
Secretary John Bedford believes that the right kind of a business deal
is one where an honest article changes hands to the profit of the buyer
a- well as tu the seller. And upon such a policy is buiil the Vancouver
Tenters'  Board  uf  Trade.     In  a  recent address, Mr. Bedford said in part :
"If sometimes yuu who are working fur the best interests of thc organization, tind your brother members not up to your ideals, talk the matter eivcr with him at mice, and educate him up to ye.ur standard of honesty and integrity. You will find lhat if perchance yuu have difficulties
t., contend with, and if yem are sincere in your motive fur luenesty of
purpose yuu will bc a p..wer uf strength tu the organization, and eventually your work lu uplift will bring beneficial results. Have fur your aim
in life the words that were attributed tu the Saviour uf the World : "He
went about doing good." You may nut get thc applause which you think
you merit, guud deeds are not as a rule praised. They should be, however. Follow the example of many whe, have never mentioned their noble
acts.    Rather die than lie.
