SOUTH  VANCOUVER,  B.C.,  CANADA, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1912
Price 5 Cents
B. C. E. R. to Spend Half
Million in New Equipment
To   Go   Before   Government
Order for Many New Cars is
all Branches
The desire of the management of the
B. C. Electric tei meet fully the demands e.f the growing traffic over its
lilies on an adequate basis^ was testified to the other day when announcement was made from the company's
eeffice of the closing of the first cein-
iract for city passenger ears to be delivered during 1913. The expenditure
represented by this contract will be
over $500,000.
The order noted was that covering
<i5 city cars, the contract for which
was awarded to the Preston Car and
t'e each Company, of Preston, Ont. The
terms of the order demand that delivery be made early next spring, the
first car being shipped by April 1,
and shipments thereafter to be made
at thc rate of two cars per working
.lay. This requirement will mean that
lhe entire order would be in service
.luring the month  of  May.
Thc cars are to be of tlie single
end type and 44 feet in length. In general they will be similar tei the Brill
cars placed on thc city lines during the
present year, having the arch roof,
slat scats, etc., as provided in these
cars. The specifications called leer
ears which are up-to-date in every
particular, a number of minor improvements which have recently been
found desirable in eether large cities
having been added. In finish and
equipment the cars will be the equaj
��� if   any   city   cars   een   the   continent.
The new cars will bc equipped with
.���ales   or   doors   e.n   the   platform,   ill
Placed���New Rolling Stock for
of Company
conformity with the requirements of
the new regulation of tlie Provincial
Government. In stating this new
feature of the equipment of city cars,
it was stated that the cars recently
ordered from the Brill Company, of
Philadelphia, none of which are now
on the way to the city, arc alsei equipped  with gates or deeors.
"The placing of this large e.rder
with an eastern firm at this time,"
said an official of the company, "deies
not by any means mean that the
B. C. Electric has abandoned its policy
of car building at its Xew Westminster shops. At the present time mir
traffic requirements are such as rc-
quire large additions of rolling stock
in the shortest possible time, and wc
must meet these conditions in the best
possible manner. With the large
amount of repair work incident to
the rolling steeck wc now carry, it is
not practicable to turn out from the
Xew Westminster shops cars at the
rate demanded by tbe growth of the
company's business, hence the order
noted here has been given to an
eastern car building ���: ������������crn. I may
say. however, lhat at present the needs
of the company on ail branches nf its
system for new rolling stock during
1913 are now being drawn up and the
orders for the work will shortly be
arranged. When these allotments are
made il will be found that ample work
lo keep the Westminster car shops
constantly busy lias been apportioned
to that plant."
Work   e.n   the  grading    of     Rupert
Street   was   ordered   Stopped   by   the
Municipal Council on Wednesday of
this week. At the crossing of the
li. C. I;.. R. on this sireet the Council
proposed to raise the grade several
feel and thereby do away with a
bridge and reduce it to a level crossing.
Some lime ago the B. C. E. K. objected tei this work and the Council j
have decided tei place the whole matter before the Provincial Government
before they proceed any further with
lhe work.
The   interurban   line   of   the   B.   C.
E. k is operated under a provincial
charier and ihe question is therefore
eme for settlement by the provincial
authorities.
The Council left for Victoria the
latter part of ibis week, when this
question, alsei the question oi paving
Westminster Road, will cenne before
ihe Government.
It is understood the Rupert Street
grading question will come up on
Me'inlay next.
It is also stated that application is
being made by several residents for
an injunction restraining the Council
from proceeding with the wurk.
Annexation and the "Man in
the Street"
BOARD OF TRADE
NAMES SUCCESSOR
To  the  Editor of "The Chinook"
Sir,���At a public meeting held un-
.l.-r  the  auspices  of  Ward  111   Ratepayers'    Association,  a  remark    was
passed by a ratepayer to the effect that
he considered very few of the people
understood   what   those     two    terms
meant,  viz.:    Annexation  and   Incor-
jee(ration.    To use his own words, "95
per cent, ejf the people could neet tell
you what the two words, Annexation
and Incorporation, meant."
However much or little thai gcntlc-
lan  was out in  his percentage, it  is
deplorable  fact  in  these    modem
el iys pf rapid progress and flight   that
ry  few people take the trouble to
investigate   the   cause  and  effect  of
i iiportant     Municipal   or   Legislative
i lianges.    Personally, I have not been
��� npressed   with   the   specious    argu-
ments  trotted  out   (specially  by  An-
��� exationists)  by the parties of both
���ides, since they only generalize their
���tatements,  which  means  cither  one
���ele or  both,  or  whatever  may  turn
up for the best.   Well, let it bc so.
Coming straight down to hard fact
ml putting aside  all  sentiment   (and
1 include all local patriotic sentiment),
let   us   ask   ourselves   the   questions:
\ hat  iloes annexation  mean?    What
loes    incorporation   mean?    Let    us
ike annexation   fifsl.    It  means  the
lining of a strip of territory fourteen
mare miles in extent to lhe City "f
ancouver, which in itself is not near-
so  large, and   the  taking  over by
he  City  of  Vancouver all  the  grave
esponstbillties   of   providing   for   the
mancial, educational and progressive
nprovenients   of   a   territory     much
irger   than   itself.     That   is   a   plain
alemcnt of  fact,  which  the  man  in
'ie street will understand.   Yet it has
ever before been staled in such clear
tanner by anyone   advocating   the
i uise of annexation.
As a citizen of South Vancouver, I
elo protest solemnly that a large number of my fellow ratepayers arc merely painting pictures of what is going
lo happen (perhaps) if annexation
'���'irries, instead of laying bare a broad
base of cause and effect for the people to go upon, so that they may Intelligently think out a great issue. And
"]y protest starts from the Reeve
himself, who seems so infatuated with
his own views on thc matter that all
lie thinks about is making a fool of
himself, Proposing a plebiscite he was
told was not legal; working day and
"ight forming committees not to enlighten the people, but to win an elec-
'ion. This is not the duty of our first
magistrate. He is not a Reeve for
parties, but for the whole of South
Vancouver, and I warn him he had
I'ctter prepare more facts than he has
hitherto done, if he wishes thc people
1,1 give him a second term in a Muni.
' ipal chair.
1 have before me the memorandum
of agreement drawn up by the joint
committe.e of the city authorities with
our own representatives, and am not
Koing to charge anyone with that
dirty weapon called personal abuse,
'>ut I am going to hit pretty hard
and straight from the shoulder. Look
'" press and on platform: those who
are leading the people to believe that
"nee annexation takes place South Vancouver will be a land, in a very short
space of time, watered, sewered and
Paved, very much quicker than if she
remained as we are or as an incorporated city.
Taking a broad view of the whole
'natter,  I  must   ask  my  fellow  rate-
Mr. Kenneth Lamond to Succeed Mr.
Harrison as Secretary
The Dominion Government has
completed the survey of the Xorth
Arm of the Fraser and will forward
a copy of the survey to the local
Board of Trade upon request, according to a report received at Monday
evening's meeting of the board. The
secretary will send to Ottawa to
secure a copy. It was the original intention of thc board to employ an independent engineer to make a survey,
but thc Federal Department of Public
Works promised that a rep.ert of the
weirk carried out by them recently
would be forwarded as soon as possible.
The board received the resignation
of its secretary, Mr. Charles llarri-i
son. Mr. Kenneth Lamond was elected to fill thc position till the end of
the current board year. Mr. Harrison's withdrawal, accepted after many
comments on thc efficiency of the
present encumbent of the position,
' has taken place because of a projected visit to England for some four
months.
A decision was arrived at to hold
the annual ball of tbe board about
the middle of January. This is the
principal social function of the organization during each year.
ESTIMATES ALL BUT
REACH HALF MILLION
SEEKS GAS FRANCHISE
IN SOUTH VANCOUVER
payers to take a glance not at South
Vancouver, but over a very large area
of the City of Vancouver, and what
do we find? Wc behold large tracts
of the city proper nol even provided
with proper roads, and conditions of
health protection such as refuse and
sewerage, too. This is not to say I
am charging the city authorities with
want of foresight, or anything else.
I merely want to point out that the
City eif Vancouver today has responsibilities she finds absolutely unable
tei carry out, owing to the enormous
tasks she has on hand, even without
taking in South Vancouver. And I
ask in all seriousness, is it likely that
South Vancouver could hope for such
things as water, sewerage and protective health measures within a short
space of time after annexation, when
the city finds itself incapable of doing all these things within her own
border? That is the first question I
put to my fellow ratepayers.
To say a man intelligently understands this question by merely saying
we arc going to get this and that and
the other thing when annexed, is not
the point. It would be our just rights
and nothing more.
But are we going to get these
things? Let me in conclusion quote
the exact words of Alderman McBeath, of the City of Vancouver Council, who stated at a meeting of the
annexation representatives of thc city,
the following pregnant words: "We
would like to have South Vancouver
come in, but not on these conditions
(i.e., the conditions laid down by the
South Vancouver representatives). We
do not think we owe the Municipality
of South Vancouver a dollar when
our relative positions are considered,
and the district should come in and
take its chance with the other sections in regard to money expenditures."
My next letter will take up the
question of "Financial resources and
expenditures of both city and South
Vancouver." and trusting to your
usual courtesy to South Vancouver interests ���Yours, etc.,
JAMES CAMPBELL,
6325 Windsor Street,
South Hill, November 27, 1912.
Large Sum of Money Will be Asked
for School Purposes
The School Trustees at their meeting on Tuesday night teiok an option
eif $300 until May next em a site for a
new school between Kinross and
Tliync streets. The site is offered by-
Mr. William Vivian, and the price is
$4,000 per acre for five acres, more or
less.
Mr. Graham stated that there are
now fourteen pupils at the manual
training classes at the Cedar Cottage
centre. A letter was read from the
education department stating that as
those classes were held on Saturdays,
they could not be recognized as a
night sell.ml, and therefore the department could not assist to the full extent laid down in the act. The department was anxious to help in the
work, and was prepared to pay two-
fifths of the cost of providing a teacher for the class. The letter asked feer
a certified statement of the amount
paid for thc teacher during the preceding month.
Mr. Graham said he had received a
letter from the inspector intimating
that another letter would bc scut in
a few days which would be satisfactory. A letter was read from Miss
Priseilla MacDottg.il resigning her
position as teacher in the Van Home
school.
A satisfactory report was received
eef the work now being carried on at
the various schools.
It was reported that the school estimates amount t<i $425,000.

New Block for Fraser Avenue
Another new bleick will bc erected
soon on Fraser Street, between Forty-
eighth and Forty-ninth Avenue. A
deal was put through thc other day
by the People's Trust Co., of Fraser
Avenue, in which a lot was purchased by Mr. Jos. Peters of Lang-
ham, Sask., lhe figure being a good
one. It is the intention of Mr. Peters
tei commence work at once upon the
erection of a block on the hit. Thc
business section of Eraser Avenue
continues to grow rapidly.

SUPPORT  FOR  SOUTH
HILL FOOTBALL CLUB
No    Sporting     Organization     More
Worthy of Aid
An organization which deserves a
great deal more support than it is receiving is thc South Hill Football
Club. There is no more worthy ama.
tettr sporting club in South Vancouver
than this organization. Two years
ago this club was organized hy Mr.
R. S. Lewington, of the People's
Trust Co., Fraser Avenue, and under
his able guidance and direction the
club has maintained all the best traditions of the amateur game. Last
year the club won the championship of
the South Vancouver League, and this
year they are high up in the race in
the South Vancouver and District
League. Mr. Lewington is again president of thc club this year, and it is
entirely to his zeal and energies that
South Vancouver has a team of which
this Municipality should bc so proud.
That a little support by the public,
who should give every aid to good,
clean amateur sport would be appreciated goes without saying.
Last Saturday the South Hill and
Coquitlam clubs put up the best game
played to date in the league race at
Wilson Park, the visitors winning by
a score of 2 to 0. It was freely acknowledged by thc members of the
Coquitlam team at thc conclusion of
the match lhat it should have been a
draw. Leishman, Goode and Sutherland displayed exceptional form for
the South Hill club.
South Hill is in the semi-final of
the Iroquois Cup scries and will meet
the V. A. C. team on Wilson Park
on Saturday afternoon of next week.
The South Vancouver team has a good
opportunity of capturing this piece
of silverware.
Bylaw May be Put Before the Ratepayers
Tei consider the police report which
was recently brought in and !������ take
up the question eif grading Rupert
Street, the Council met in committee
on Friday afternoon. Part of the police
I report was adopted and will come be-
jforc the next meeting of thc Council
for confirmation.
In regard to the Rupert Street grading the solicitor    was    instructed to
jloeek into the legal aspect of the matter   ami   in   lhe   meantime   lhe   work
iwill proceed.
Another question discussed was the
I granting of a gas franchise lo Mr.
Thomas eef Vancouver, who seeks to
supply the residents of South Vancouver with gas. Mr. Thomas proposed to erect a gas producing plant
j on lhe banks eif thc Fraser River.
After some discussion il was suggested lhat a franchise be drafted and
brought before thc Council so that if
'thought desirable it may be put before thc ratepayers.
Mr. Vivian attended to offer certain property on Forty-seventh Avenue' for the purposes of a temporary
'hospital in connection with the Victorian Order of District Nurses, South
j Vancouver branch. Several residents
were present to oppose the proposal
'and Reeve' Kerr and Councillor Robinson   were   appointed  to  inspect   the
! premises.
Mr. W. A. Pound Will be
a Candidate for Reeveship
Ex-Reeve Announces that he Will be in the Field Once More
for Chief Magistrate's Chair���Warm Fight Anticipated
Announcement was maele this week
that  Mr.  \\    A. Pound, ex-Reeve oi
S'eiitli Vancouver, would gee into the
field again in January next. This in-
dicates one eif tlu- most interesting
fights in the hisleery eif the Municipality for the office .ef chief magistrate.
While Mr. Pound only allowed the
annouacement tei be made this week,
it has been common knowledge
amongst bis friends that strong ef-
forts were being made te, have him
stand fe.r the recveship once nnere.
Owing to the part the annexation
question will play in the approaching
election, Mr. Pound consented te. alii ew his name tee go before the ratepayers.
Mr. Pound was Reeve of South
Vancouver for three years preceding
the present year, when the office has
been held by Mr. J. A. Kerr. Before
that he served several years as councillor. During his term of office, efforts were made to make it possible
fe.r Semth Vancouver t'i become annexed by the City of Vancouver, but
the   Government   declined     to    grant
special legislation. Of all the nun in
South Vancouver win, understand the
annexation proposition, Mr. Pound is
with.eut doubt the besl posted.
Several nanus have already -ecu
mentioned in connection with the fight
feer ihe recveship. Reeve Kerr will
be a candidate once more-, going to the
people ��� .11 hi- ree-'erd feer lhe past year,
while the names of several olher well-
known parlies have been mentioned.
At the present time it Links as if
there will bc three vacancies to fill ml
the Schoeil Board. Mr. Michelmore,
representative of Ward I, has announced that I,.- will retire this year,
while there i- little likelihood that Mr.
J. C. McArthur will again offer himself f..r a place een the board. Then
there' is a vacancy caused by the resignation of Mr. Sce.tt.
Quite a number 'ef bylaws will come
before   the'  people.     One  of  lhe  most
important will be the one dealing with
the permanent paving of Westminster
Reead. A \"ie een the' annexation terms
with the City of Vancouver will also
occasion  great interest.
ADJUSTING THE
TAX  SALE  TANGLE
New B.  C.  E.  R. Time  Card
A  new  schedule  for  the  city    and
branch lines of the B. C. E. R. will be
I announced next week, and it is expected that the service on the different South Vancouver lines will be affected t.e advantage.    Thc B. C. E. R.
lis making every effort tee cope with
the large number e.f passengers  thee
|handle. Only this week several ears
were added to the Fraser Streel line
during the rush heiurs, but it is expected that the new schedule will
give  even   further  relief.
The Highland Park cut-.iff on ihe
interurban line will probably be used
for the first time next week. This
will give the company a double track
all the way man Vancouver to Westminster, and will make it possible for
the company to operate two-car trains
on this line. These trains will bc put
in operation as soon as the new cars
are equipped.
The people of Collingwood are asking for something to be done to improve the condition of the roads close
to Collingwood East station. The
road and paths are now in an intolerable condition, dirty and dangerous.
East Collingwood is a busy place and
needs more attention.
Municipality Will Gather Information
for the  Provincial  Government
The tax sale tangle is still being
wrestled with by the Council of South
Vancouver At its last sessie.n. Councillor Robinson, who has been very
active iu trying to have the difficulties
adjusted, brought in the Following
motion which was seconded by Coun-
! eillor Klliott anel which wa- passed
by the Council:
"Thai Solicit, er Clarke be authorized
i" supply the Provincial Government
ail available information on the circum.
stances in respect of all tax sales purported ni have been held illegally iu
South Vancouver during tin- y'ears
1893' to 1K98 inclusive'. Anel. if the
solicitor deems it necessary, to call in
'the services of Mr W. II II Ladner
to assist him in liis report."
Mr. Ladner acted for Mrs. Ralston
in ihe action brought by Anderson for
iln-  recovery "i certain  lands in  the
.Municipality of Semth Vancouver ow-
ing io certain irregularities of the
Council at the time oi the tax sale.
The solicitors for Anderson claimed
that the sale was defective owing to
the fact that the Council did not -it
within the boundaries .if Se.uth Vancouver at the time of the sale. The
ease was carried through the courts
in Canada and la.si summer the Privy
i Council  of  England  decided  that   lhe
land had been  illegally sold.
The Council e.f Semth Vancouver is
| anxious that the Government at Victoria pass special legislation validating
lhe different lax sales al which the
Council of South Vancouver 'lid not
sit within South Vancouver to transact the tax sale business. This legislation is asked to cover other Municipalities    such  as   Xorth     Vancouver.
! Point Grey and either places where
there arc tax sale problems. Considerable development in Semth Vancouver is being helel up wailing a settlement of this lax sale difficulty, as loan
companies will not make loans een
property where there is any doubt

CORRESPONDENCE
RECORD IN SATISFYING
FIRE INSURANCE CLAIM
One Day After  Fire, Insurance Paid
Over to P. C. Hughes
A record in meeting an insurance
claim was undoubtedly established in
connection with the destruction of the
home of Police Constable Hughes
this week. Early Tuesday morning
the Police Constable, when coming
off duty at the Municipal Hall, saw a
fire in tbe distance, and after turning
in an alarm to the brigade, hurried
to the scene only to find that his own
house was the one in flames. His
wife and five children in the meantime had experienced a miraculous
escape, the house burning fiercely
when  the  fire was discovered.
Some time previous tei the fire,
through Mr. R. S. Lewington, of the
People's Trust Co., Eraser Avenue.
Mr. Hughes placed an insurance of
$1,000 on the house and was contemplating a policy on the furniture. Thc
insurance was carried by the Western
Union F'ire Insurance Co., and on
Tuesday, Mr. McLean, secretary of the
company, visited the scene of the conflagration. On Wednesday a cheque
for the insurance was in thc hands of
Constable Hughes. This constitutes
one of the quickest transactions in
satisfying a fire insurance claim in
Vancouver or vicinity.
It is interesting to note that the
agency of the Western Union Eire Insurance Co., which is held by Mr.
Lewington of the People's Trust Co.,
is the onlv direct fire insurance agency
held in South Vancouver,
From the King's Printer at Victoria

thc Women's University Club are arranging a great "Dickens Festival."
For this affair Mr. J. Francis Bursill
has dramatized a scene from "The Old
Curiosity Shop," and he has alsei given
help with regard to costumes, etc. It
is intended to secure some of the leading features of this "Dickens Festival"
for presentation at thc Collingwood
Institute and Library before Christmas. Mr. Bursill intends to have a
gigantic Christmas tree for the children, and asks help in furnishing it.
Collecting Road Tax
Among the duties which the police
have been called upon tei perform is
the collection of the two dollar road
tax from householders. The officers
of the feircc arc now engaged in this
work. Those subject to the tax arc

under 60.
Work on Rupert Street
To tin  Editor of "The Chinook"
Sir.���I happened t.i be out at Col-
lingwood a week or so ago and had an
opportunity to investigate ihe proposed alteration to tin- street where
it passes under the 1! C. Electric kail-
way. There i�� a fall of several feet
down south .ii the railway, ami the
Complaint was lhat there was n.et
[enough head room all..weel i" ��.. under
the railway. The Council, il seems,
have pas-eel em work to be done to
fill in Rupert Street each side e.f the
railway bridge, so as tei get a level
crossing. Now, everybody from a
Schoolboy up kmiws that the effort
always is where traffic begins to grow
large I" do awav with level crossings,
anil go under or over the railway-.
There can he no difficulty in cut
ting down the road a tew feet, .mil
the P.. C. E. Railway Company have
agreed to raise the track two feet ami
give a. 66-ft, span over the street. This
Would give necessary roenn lor any
van tee pass through, ami there would
be no fear of accident, which may
occur  if  the  crossing  is   made  level.
It seems a monstrous thing that thc
ratepayers' money should be squandered away in doing the wurk the
Council have passed, which when finished leaves the possibility of accidents and action for damages against
the Municipality, and thc further possibility e.f the Railway Commission
ordering the work undone and thc
road made tee go under thc bridge, as
now. The cost of this work is, likely
to run lei $25,000, and it is my firirr
opinion that the ratepayers sheiuld
call a meeting and see what action
can be taken at once to stop thc work
and compel the Council to spend
money in a more useful and saner
manner than  this.
All those I have spoken to who are
ratepayers in this Municipality feel
just about the same way as T have
expressed above, therefore I hope
before it is too late that action will
bc taken by some of the residents in
the Collingwood district. I am a
ratepayer, but not in that Ward.
Thanking you for your help in giving   this   publicity.���Yours,   etc.,

A campaign for ihe luppreuion e,i

Women. Lecture* illustrated by moving pictures depicting the condition*
under which sweated labor is pet-
feirmed arc being given in vari.etis
pans ..f Great  Britain,   The subject
i- serie.us enough and if the Federation will only teach the public that
lhe women are neit employed because
they are we,men, but because they are
the' cheapest labor lhat can be -.I��_
tamed to do that kind e,f work, they
will get nearer thc truth than respectable people will care  to admit.
Have you ever thought when buying that pretty coat for the baby that
most likely it was made in a roeim
��� where perhaps a whole family cats,
drinks, sleeps, and w.irks; and that
possibly at least one member ��� ��� l the
family may be suffering from tuberculosis or some other disease which
i< elite tee overcrowding, poor food,
bad sanitation, and lack of air and
sunlight? 11 is the contention of the
Trade Union movement lhat any industry that cannot be carried on except by exploiting the sweated labeir
of women is not necessary, neither
should it be permitted. Possibly when
lhe workers quit sending employers
eef sweated labor into Councils and
Parliaments they will get result"
which they del not deserve tee get until
they are prepared to get them for

The Night Force in Banks
The average worker is apt to regard
with envy the bank employee, inasmuch as there is a popular notion that
his hours are short and that he knocks
off work at about three in the afternoon, unless, indeed, there should be
a "mistake somewhere" that necessitates keeping all hands to "balance."
As a matter of fact, in certain of the
largest banks, particularly those in
New York, there is always some one
at work. All night long, and on Sundays and holidays as well, these banks
have staffs of men kept busily engaged
in opening letters���thousands of letters���sorting and listing innumerable
cheques and drafts representing vast
sums of money. These men "get
things ready" for thc day force. Wcre
it not for the night man working constantly thc day force would soon be
overwhelmed.
Between five in the afternoon and
nine the next morning there arc at
work in the big banks two shifts. They
call themselves the "scouting force."
Each bank has a big "drawer" in (he
general  post-office,  and  every    hour
during the night messengers take from
this drawer its accumulation of mail.
One large bank receives an average
mail of three thousand letters a day,
and of these two-thirds arrive during
the night. These letters contain many
cheques and drafts from all parts.
As soon as they have been opened
at the bank the cheques are counted
and the totals verified with thc footings of the lists. The letters arc then
stamped���"proven in," as bank clerks
call it. Then they are acknowledged
by clerks detailed for the purpose.
A big task is tbe assortment of the
various cheques according to the
books wherein they are to bc entered.
Sight drafts must he grouped according to the routes of the bank messengers: and everything possible is done
to turn over the night's accumulation
of mail in proper shape for the clerks
in thc morning.

Copyright, Canada, in the
year 1912. by
Port Moody Investments,
Ltd.
'vviimtmiig"
PORT   MOODY
In Barbade.s, in 1813, was born the man who gave his
name to Port Moody. He was Colonel Richard Clement
Moody, and before thc Honorable William Bowser was
bom, he was Commissioner of Works and Lands in the
Ceelony of British Columbia.
It was in 1860 that the hay at the head of Burrard Inlet
was named���two years after Colonel Moody reached the
colony with a corps of Royal Engineers, coming by way
of Panama.
Thus the name of Moody, the seaport, was brought over
that great dyke left by nature to separate two oceans and
jeein together a couple of continents.
And Port Moody's fame will bc brought by that same
route���through that same route���the Panama Canal.
This bay at the head of Burrard Inlet���the keystone
���of the finest harbor in the world���was the port originally
selected by the Canadian Government for the terminus on
the Pacific of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Port Moody,
even today, is the statutory terminus of that pioneer of
transcontinental!.
They began to deal extensively in real estate on thc
Pacific coast long before 1885. But in that year there
was intense excitement in the seaport town of Port
Moody. Was it not the Western terminus of the C.P.R!
And the activities were such as to put the wildest boom
of later days back in the shade.
Millions of dollars were tied up in Port Moody at that
time. But one morning the old-timers awoke to find that
the astute officials of the C.P.R., who owned the townsite
originally, had decided that further on the Western terminus would be fixed. So was it that at a point twelve miles
down the inlet, at Gastown, was budded the nucleus of
what is now Vancouver.
There was weeping and wailing with the old-timers of
Port Moody.
But Port Moody had natural characteristics that all
1he powers on earth, even the C.P.R., could not nab from
her. She had a splendid harbor and good-lying land contiguous to it.
Ten days after the C.P.R. "passed on," Port Moody
receded from a near-city to thc village that the Royal
Engineers had founded, and up to n few years agee. save
for the building of several great lumber mills and other
industrial concerns, Port Moody remained dormant���
broken-hearted, for her lover had not been true t.i her.
Today Port Moody has a population of some 1,500
people. It is the changing of the whole commercial map
of the world, however, that is forcing the old town to the
front. It is thc opening of the Panama Canal that is
making Burrard Inlet one of the richest possess;ons a
nation could possess���Burrard Inlet of which Port Moody
is the keystone.
For Port Moody has the marvellous water frontage,
the ideal manufacturing sites, a surrounding community
where men of poor means may buy homes���the supreme
point of strategy on thc entire inlet.
Returning to Colonel Moody, the man who walked
across the Isthmus of Panama on hia way to thc colony
of British Columbia: he was a most faithful officer of the
Crown. He held, for a long time, the commission of
Lieutenant-Governor of the colony. Later he became the
first British Governor of the Falkland Islands.
Col. Moody established headquarters for his soldiers,
upon arrival here in '58, about one mile above the site of
New Westminster, the then capital of British Columbia.
Here a village grew up, and because it was founded by
the Sappers and Miners, the village was called Sapperton,
and still bears that name.
Old-timers tell us, in connection with Col. Moody's
activities here, that one of the many industries established
by the Royal Engineers whilst stationed in British Columbia was a mint at New Westminster, under the superintendence of Capt. Gossclt, R.E., colonial treasurer. It is
said that this mint turned out four twenty dollar and
six ten dollar gold pieces, and was then closed by the
order of the Home Government.
So we see that Col. Moody indirectly was a moneymaker���at least money was made in British Columbia in
his time. There is no question, if we take the word of
men handling real estate there, but that the town that Col.
Moody gave his name to is today also a money-maker.

Power from Sea Waves
At a recent meeting of the British
Association the question of economical production of power from tides
and winds was under discussion, and
it has been taken up widely by scientific journals in Europe. In France,
attention has been called to a system
of utilizing the power of sea waves
to actuate a dynamo which has been
employed for some time past at the
mouth of the River Gironde. An air-
chamber is connected with a well
which communicates with the sea at
a depth below the level of the lowest
tides. By the advance and recession
of the waves changes of pressure are
produced in the air-chamber, and a
system of valves enables the resulting air currents to be applied to rotating a kind of turbine. It is reported
that thc apparatus works equally well
in calm and in stormy weather.
McGregor Ranch Sold
At a price said to be well up in the
six figures, one of the most beautiful
ranches in Burnaby has changed hands
and will shortly be subdivided and
placed on thc market as a new subdivision. The property in question is the
handsome home of Mr. D. C. McGregor at Glen Lyon station, on the
Westminster-Vancouver tramline. The
property comprises 150 acres in District Lot 164, Burnaby.
The deal for the property was put
through by Messrs. Hunter & Boor-
man, who represented the purchasers,
whose names are withheld for the
present. The transfer includes also
the mineral, coal and petroleum rights,
which in thc light of some recent discoveries in that district may prove
very important. The crown grant
under which thc property was originally purchased antedates all laws reserving such items and rights to the
crown, and therefore does not apply
to this particular property.

special    meeting    of    the    Edmonds
| Ratepayers'    Association,  called    for
the purpose of nominating candidates

Before  taking  up  this  matter  several   questions   wcre   asked   with   reference  to  qualifications  required   to
become a voter.    Thc clause respecting holders of Registered Agreements

position. Mr. D. C. Patterson scc-
e ended thc nomination, and spoke very
highly of Mr. Mcpherson's business
ability.
Mr. W. II. Tucker proposed Mr.
W. S. Rose as a suitable person for
the position, but Mr. Rose withdrew.
As there did not appear to be any
other candidate, Mr. McPherson, was
declared the choice of the Association, Chairman Rose then called
upon the candidate lo present his platform. He stated that he was seeking
the suffrage of the ratepayers
simply on his reputation as a business

Over $7,000
Special   .services    marking  the  first
anniversary   of   the   Mountain View
Methodist Chinch were held on Sunday. At 10 a.in. an e.ld-fashieitied
"love feast" was held. The preacher
for the day was thc Rev. F. J, Lett, of
Grandview Methodist Church and the
Rev. J. V. Bradshaw, of Sixth Avenue,
delivered a special address to the
Sunday school scholars.
At a banquet held on the Friday
night preceding thc anniversary, a
pleasing announcement was made.
Donations were made at that time exceeding over $7,000 towards clearing
off the church debt. Rev. Newton
Powell, pastor of the Kitsilano Presbyterian Church, took charge of affairs after the supper was over and
marked out tables on a blackboard
over which he placed figures from $500
down to five dollars, A call for $500
elicited several promises; that for
amounts between $250 and $500
brought many more and hy the lime
the campaign leader reached the $5.
$10 and $25 tables the enthusiasm
reached such a point that the $7,000
which was needed to pay off thc debt
was soon exceeded. The Ladies'
Auxiliary of the church subscribed
$1,500. This grant of $7,000 with the
many previous calls by the church
for financial assistance, was made by
a membership which docs not exceed
200. It is said to constitute a record
for church giving. Payment of the
subscription is spread over a term of
two years.

General regret was felt this n

manager of that institution, who noti-
ficd thc board of directors at their

Although strongly urged by the
hoard to reconsider his decision Mr.
Shatford feels that owing to the large
amount of time required by his legislative and business duties, he will be
unable to concur with their wishes
He also contemplates an extended
trip to Europe in the spring.
Temporarily assuming the general
managership of the Bank of Vancouver at the beginning of thc year Mr.
Shatford has been instrumental >��
placing this bank upon a firm financial footing. His efforts were
recognized by tbe directors at Wednesday's meeting when a unanimous
resolution of commendation and appreciation was passed.

it   was  al!
Lee's arrest; the next move was to
capture  thc  outlaw.
It would bc no easy matter: the
simple mountaineer was of a gentle
nature, but a hard tighter when aroused and a demon because of his great
strength.
Up the mountain side the light in
Sam's cabin twinkled and smiled
cheerfully. Stevens was pretty sure
that Sam was there, feeling confident
lhat no one had seen him return and
that he could spend a little time with
his wife and the little tow-headed
younstcrs he loved.
Stevens decided to ride up until
about  a  quarter  of  '���'   mile  from  the
Sam paused. And suddenly a despairing scheme flamed into Stevens'
mind. Lee vvas simple as a child: it
might be worth trying���there was
nothing else to do.

into action:

Granitoid   Pavement
A   HOME   PRODUCT
This is the Only   Pavement Constructed   Entirely of Local
Materials by Home Labor���A CANADIAN PRODUCT THROUGHOUT
DAVIE STREET
Concrete is recognized as the only material
suitable for permanent work, and is used as the
foundation for all modern pavements.
Concrete pavements have been laid extensively
in Canada and the United States, and are becoming more popular each year. Over one half
million yards of concrete pavements were laid
last year in Canada, and over two million yards
in the United States.
The discovery of a satisfactory concrete wearing surface, suited for heavy traffic streets, has
been made in Granitoid Pavement after years of
experimenting and study. In our Granitoid Pavement we have a concrete base and a concrete
wearing surface that will meet all the requirements of automobile and vehicular traffic, and a
pavement that will become more durable with
age.
An investment in Granitoid pays the highest
returns in durability and satisfactory service.

"Before Cod I swear it!" Stevens
cried, the fear of death upon him, thc
damp dew of the rpiagmire breathing
upon his face.
"Jim. 1 b'lieve ye!���ye wouldn't lie
ter a man em that! Jim, I'm dogged
seerry, but I couldn't do nuthin' else."
the voice ran on, anxious as a child
grieving for some injury done in a
moment of anger. His big bands
fumbled at Steven's bonds and released him.
"(lit up, Jim. gil up. Wliv'n Gawd's
name didn't yc tell  mc before?"
"I was muddled���my head���dazed

hastily, rising unsteadily with the help
of Sam.

and swung him up.  Soon  they were'
in   the   road   where   the   horse   still
lingered.
"You climb "ii the hoss, an' I'll lead j
him," Sam suggested.
They started up. Stevens was weak
still, and the death to which he had
been so near made his heart beat
weakly even then. But as they went
up the rough mountain road carefully,
lie began to get a grip mi himself and
plan the next move in the game, lie
would get Lee this time or know the
reason why. He woulil wait until his
full strength returned, then���Stevens
i felt feer his revolver���it was gone;
I,ee had seen to that, naturally. Seeme
way or other he must gel hold of al
gun.
As they drew near the  cabin.  Lee
called.     The   door   was   thrown   "pen ,
and a woman's figure appeared in the
light; a group of little ligures Bqueez- .
eel in around her.
Sam's vi .ice rang out.
"I'm  free,  woman!     I'm   free!    Jim |
Stevens brought  the  papers, but   1���"
"Free! Oh, Sammy!" In the breathless words was a jeevents rapture that
seemed to vibrate like chimes e.n the
night air.
"That's right, girl; I'm free' Come
on, Jim!''
Stevens slid slowly from his horse.
"1 guess I'm all right," be laid, refusing the Other's aid.
Inside, thc smiling Sam drew up a
rough   chair   to  the   tabic.
"Set down, Jim. an' we'll lu-v a
little drink  an'  sonic  grub."
Stevens leaned back after drinking, and under the sting of the liqueer
felt his strength come back; a little
while, and he could test it. Sam hael
gone  out  into  the  shed  in  thc  rear, j \au\
elereel   what   Sam   hael   done   with   his.
When the meal was ..ver. S.un drew
up the rough benches before the fire.
"Se-t up, Jim, an' smoke a pipe e('
peace."
As they drew up together, Sam
reached a big. clunisv hand intei the
pocket eef his >liirt, and Stevens fairly
gasped as Ik- saw held out to him Ilis
own   revolver.
"Thar's yer vvepun, Jim. I tuk il
ire .in ye right at the start; ye're loo

I'd  leave it betide ye by the quag."
"Leave   it   by   me   by   the     i|Uag?"
1    Stevens   ejaculated.     "Veen    mean   in

The big boyish lace turned squarely to his, and the eyes were puzzled;
-lowly the truth seemed to come l"

Stevens went back to his cejat, which
hung near the d'"er. He braced himself, he was ready, he must dee liis

carefully covered thc broad back at
a spot beneath which the heart was
beating.
Then  he  spoke  sharply:
"Sam, I have papers here, bit;
they're for your arrest, and I've got
you dead!"
Thc rough face turned, pipe half to
mouth, and stared with wide, wondering eyes.
"What's thai. Jim:" Then he saw
the leveled revolver, and jumped as

in spite of himself, and his inner discord was emphasized when Sam went

She immediately, womanlike, came

the public to stop and consider for a moment the tremendous expenditure of money before tracks arc permanently laid, the obstacles to a smooth running schedule by
public works, and the difficulties in keeping the nelling
stock sufficient to handle a population which increases
by the thousands each month, they would not be so keen
to tell us how they do things across the border.
It is a remarkable tribute to thc management of the
B. C. E. R. that they have been able to build up such a
system to keep abreast of thc times hi such a brief period.
To do that has required not only an investment of many
millions nf de.llars in British Columbia, but foresight and
discretion em the part of its executive officers.
THE COUNCIL, THE "RECORDER" AND THE
"WIZARD"
THE South Vancouver Council, like the good people of
"Rheims," does not seem "one penny the worse for
all the anathemas which spite and ignorance can pour
upon it. Always ready to receive wise and informed criticism and to profit by well-directed advice and timely
suggestion, the Council does well to ignore abuse poured
upon it by those who have interests to serve by "kicking
at thc powers that be, or who simply find fault with what
they do not understand. A mining paper, published on
"the Island," and which professes to be a "Recorder" ol
fact and opinion, has been severely taking the South Vancouver Council to task for "wasting the people's money"
in employing a "water wizard" to "locate" water for thc
Municipality. Thc "water wizard"���thc term is not objected to���was employed in the "dry" season; it has needed no "wizard" to discover water in South Vancouver
during the last few weeks.
The Victoria paper declares that by seeking thc aid of
a "water diviner" the Council has gone back to the days
of witchcraft, has been guilty of ignorant superstition, and
encouraged "a fakir" in "graft."
There are many more things in earth and heaven than
are dreamed of in the philosophy of the writer in the
"Recorder"���that is certain. In these days of cheap literature it is a wonder to find any intelligent man ignorant
of the fact that modern research has confirmed the fact
tbat "the divining rod" is, in some hands, a very potent
instrument indeed. There is no greater authority on such
a matter than Prof. Hill-Tout, of Abbottsford, who has in
his remarkable library the reports of a body of men,
equipped with all the necessary knowledge, who after an
exhaustive enquiry, which had all the dignity and thoroughness of a "Royal Commission," fully confirmed the
water diviner's claims. Doctor Frederick Lee, Baring
Gould and a score of modern literary men have gone
deeply into this subject and have placed the power of the
willow wand, in some hands, beyond dispute.
The South Vancouver Council arc told that had they
lived a couple of hundred years ago they would have been
stoned or burned for "encouraging witchcraft and sorcery."
The force of ignorant folly could no farther go than this.
Is the writer so ignorant that he docs not know that the
pioneers of printing, of steam, of electricity were all accused of witchcraft, and that the United States town
"Salem" is called the "Witch Town" to this day, because,
less than a hundred years ago, they stoned and drowned
people there whei had ideas and knowledge in advance
of the masses?
Mother Shipton, who foretold that carriages would go
without horses and that people would fly in the air, was
a "witch," but what do wc say of het predictions now?
Certain it is that the sapient writer in thc "Recorder" will
never bc burned for having too much intelligence or the
gift of prophecy. He foretold nothing but failure for the
"water wizard" and blame for the Council for employing him. It will come as a surprise to the critic to know
that the "willow wand" has again proved its potency, and
lhat the Council have earned gratitude by stepping a little
off the beaten path and encouraging an experiment in
occult philosophy. Thc "water wizard" has carn-d iiis
modest fee by "locating" a well at which Mr. Mullett, the
Water Superintendent, has installed a pump which he
says yields "approximately 300,000 gallons of the purest
water daily."
Here, then, is the "wizard's" vindication; here is the
Council's justification, and the Victoria critic will perhaps
have the decency to hide his diminished head.
A GROWING COMMUNITY AND TRAM
CONNECTIONS
THE effents of thc 13. C. E. R. Company to keep pace
with the development and expansion that are taking
place at the Coast is one of the wonders of thc commercial activity of British Columbia. Were thc ordinary man
of business confronted with problems such as daily face
that transportation company, it would bc hard to suggest
bis fate. At least our visions of roll-top desks and two-
bit perfeclos vanish.
The man on the street often complains that the company
docs not show enough initiative in laying tracks to be
prepared for business. They argue that many of the
United States companies do that, and that they create and
encourage development in certain districts by preceding
population. Any business man will instantly recognize thc
folly of this argument, for he knows that the principle of
any sound business undertaking is to develop the point
of efficiency with the increase of business. A business
is usually organized to take care of a certain amount of
trade or business, or whatever you may care to call it.
The size of the plant, or the number of machines to be
installed, is determined.chiefly by a reasonable estimate
of expected business. There may bc cases where it would
be economical to anticipate business, but generally speaking the size of the plant is governed entirely by tbe capacity to turn thc machinery over.
What is true of the conduct of any business should be
true of a transportation company. There should be an
assurance of a reasonable amount of business before any
company is expected to give train conveniences. It would
be just as reasonable to ask the manufacturer to double
the capacity of his plant on the assurance that some day
he would be able to sell his goods. Show the manufacturer, however, where he has a market for his goods, and
it will not be long before the plant is increased to meet
the demand.
Sometimes in the great development which is taking
place in the coast centres, the part played by tbe transportation company is not given the credit it deserves.
Very often they are asked to do impossible things; more
often the public expects them to do impossibilities.   Were
THE SALVATION ARMY AND IMMIGRATION
/""VN the question of immigration there can bc no two
'-' opinions as to the good that is being accomplished
by the Salvation Army. Hundreds and thousands have
been brought to the overseas dominions, and especially
to Canada and this Far West, where there is so much
room for them, through the agency of the Army. And
to the credit of the Salvation Army the percentage of
failures has been remarkably small, indicating that the officials have been more than careful in making their selection of candidates for travel. This scheme, which has
been such a success, is to be taken up more wholeheartedly in the future. Already the initial steps have
been taken with a view to bringing out to Canada many
who, through no fault of their own, have been failures in
the Old Land, and who will be given a chance to make
good on this side of the Atlantic. Thc advance agent has
been here in the person of Commissioner Ross, who is
making a tour of thc Dominion, making thc necessary
arrangements for thc journey, and it is expected that by
thc spring there will be at least a thousand men and
women, guests of the Salvation Army, on their way to
the West to make it their permanent home.
DIVINING FOR WATER
IS IT A FAKE?
Tei the Editor of "The Chinook"
Sir,���Some months ago, in the "dry"
season, the South Vancouver Munici-1
pality   needed   water,   for   which   the j
ratepayers   were   clamoring.     Several |
borings for wells were made; the results were not satisfactory.
It   was   suggested   that   thc   Council
employ a water "diviner," or a "dow- j
ler," as he is called in the Old Coun- |
try���one    who   claims   to   have    thc |
power  to locate water  with  a  willow)
wand.    Some Councillors ridiculed the |
notion.    One Councillor, knowing thei
interest I lake in antiquarian subjects, I
as':ed   my  opinion  on   the   matter.     1 j
attended  the Council.     I   said  I  knew I
nothing of the ability of the "Water
Wizard," whose name  had been  suggested, but 1 was sure that some persons had the peculiar power of locating water, and  I  quoted  from a rare
French work. "Jacob's Rod," from tlie
archaeological works of Dr. Frederick
Lee and from  Baring  Could.    These
books  (now in  the Collingwood  Library)   I  placed  at  the  service  of thc
Council.     I    expressed    by    opinion
JACOB ZIMMERMAN,
FLOATING CORPORATION BONDS
""THERE is just the possibility, not to say the probability
*��� that a few of the municipalities, South Vancouver
included, will bc obliged to ask for less and give more in
the matter of the bonds they will send for flotation in
the English financial market. The fact of the matter
is that the British financiers are getting about as much
as they can handle at the present time and they do not,
as a result, feel inclined to further burden themselves. In
addition to that, the kings of finance can get a higher
rate of interest for their investments in lands across the
sea outside Canada, than they can in the Dominion. Like
Oliver Twist, they want more and they mean to have it.
Now, at the coming elections, both city and municipal,
there will bc a large number of money bylaws submitted
to the ratepayers for their ratification or otherwise, and
thc outcome of all this will be to flood the English markets with bonds, not half of which will be sold. Within
the past twelve months, the City of Vancouver has had
experience of this sort of thing, and similar difficulties
were also encountered immediately outside the city.
Bearing this in mind, civic and municipal fathers should
hesitate before they go too far. The loss might fall in
two ways���first, they might, and no doubt will, receive,
a shorter price for the bonds, and, secondly, they will have
to give a better return to the takers. Meantime the bylaws
are being prepared. The ratepayers and property owners
would be well advised to think twice before they vote. .
IMMIGRA TION INCREASES
r\URI.\'G the seven months from April 1 to November
**J 1 the immigration returns show that no less than
300,841 newcomers entered Canada. It has figured thai
to transport this number of immigrants, 601 trains of ten
cars each would bc required. While these arc remarkable
figures, thc most outstanding fact is that these 300,000
people have been absorbed almost as rapidly as they reached Canada. Without effort, Canada has been able to not
only provide work for this great army of new-comers,
but as eagerly calls for more.
It is anticipated that when thc Immigration Department
closes its year on March 31 next, Canada will have received something like 400,000 immigrants during tbe twelve
months. This represents a greater proportion than any
other country has received within the same time. It is
noteworthy that should the United States receive new
citizens at the rate of one to eighteen in one year the
population of that country would be increased to the extent of over five millions.
On this remarkable influx of new-comers, the Toronto
"Globe" says:
"Conditions in the factory and workshop are steadily
improving for the town-bred immigrant from Great Britain! There is still friction here and there where an Englishman���the Scot and the Ulsterman arc too "canny" so
t.i offend���begins to show thc colonial how they do things
"al home" But even in such cases there is a minimum of
friction, and a firm foundation for good-will after the
new-comer recognizes lhat "home" and Canada have different standards. On thc whole there is as little friction
as there is stress or strain in thc absorption of the great
masses of immigrants from Europe. In the case of the
Americans there is none at all, for in most instances they
are pioneers of experience who go straight to the land
they have chosen and begin to cultivate it with all the
speed that gasoline can provide.
"Thc filling up of thc Last Great West is one of thc
great events of our time. What will happen when the
curtain is rung down on the play? How will thc crowded
nations of Europe dispose of their swarming surplus
millions when America can no longer absorb them? The
answer to that question will be of vital interest to the
grandchildren of the immigrants of today."
simply as one who had studied the
subject; I bad not a nickel's interest
in the matter.
After careful consideration the
Council employed the "Water Wizard,"
paying him a fee. I do not know the
amount, but it was enough to bring
down a storm of abuse on the head
of the Reeve, the Council, the "Wizard," and on poor me, I being accused of baiting up "a fakir."
A Vancouver Island paper devoted
a page and a half to this���"Another
specimen of South Vancouver graft."
Let me quote a letter which will
speak for itself:
South  Vancouver  Municipal  Hall.
November 23, 1912.
To Mr. Jacob Zimmerman.
Dear Sir,���I am pleased to inform
you that the place you located for the
South Vancouver Municipality for
water, at the corner of Forty-fourth
Avenue and Victoria Road, has proved very satisfactory. We bored 500
feet, installed a pump and we are now
pumping approximately 300,000 gallons of thc purest water from this
well daily���I am, Sir, Yours,
J. MULLETT,
Water Superintendent, South Vancouver Municipality.
This subject of "divining for water"
is very interesting. I have several
books on thc subject in the Collingwood Library.���Yours,  etc.,
J. FRANCIS BURSILL,
Fellow  Royal  Historical  Society.
r\ESPATCHES from Portland tell of a shocking auto-
L/ mobile accident in that city when a five-year-old
boy endeavored to emulate the role of an "Injun" with a
number of small companions. In his_cndeavor to avoid
being "scalped" he ran in front of a fast moving auto and,
although the driver wrecked his car by running into a
train, the boy was instantly killed.
The incident emphasizes the necessity of more caution
on thc part of parents in restraining their children from
playing the roles of dime-novel heroes. The day of the
"scalping injttn" is gone and with it should go the practice
amongst children of mimicking picturesque characters
long since a relic of the past.
A CCORDING to Miss Tekla Multin, doctor of arts of
** Helsingfors University and member of the Finnish
Parliament, women talk less than men, at least in Finland.
Miss Multin gives as her reason why the fourteen women
in the Parliament get along so well with the men, thc
fact, proved by statistics, that the women members make
fewer and shorter speeches per capita than the men.
This  fact will no doubt be used  to advantage by the
women in their fight for suffrage.

Annexation versus  Incorporation
To  tbe  Editor of "The  Chinook"
Sir,���In connection with the question of annexation versus incorporation it would bc interesting and probably enlightening to hear lhe views of
some disinterested parties: men who
arc neither pandering to the electors
nor working for their own interests:
men, in short, who understand the
situation and yet have not an axe of
their own to grind. These one-tided
and biassed opinions are very misleading.
One of our honorable representatives iu an address before a ratepayers' association, undertook to compare thc city taxation to show how
much less he was taxed in South
Vancouver than in thc city; but he
forgot to tell us that he was comparing a 52-foot lot in D.L. 301 with a
30-foot lot in South Vancouver. Then
in the olher case he forgot to mention
thc position of his South Vancouver
lots altogether or their comparative
value with the city lot, and although
I am not well versed in such matters,
I should judge that would have something to do with the amount of taxes
to be paid on them.
Although the taxes in South Vancouver are high enough now, docs
anyone suppose that if the place is
incorporated the rate of taxation will
remain the same?
In the same address be scored the
City Council for failing to carry out
all its pledges in D.L. 301. Which of
the South Vancouver Councillors, may
I ask, have fulfilled all their pre-election promises?
Thc South Vancouver electors must
indeed be "devoid of judgment" if
they think that those who sit as the
representatives of the people arc
thinking (or working) primarily for
the ultimate good of the Municipality.
Many of us might be open to conviction cither one way or the other if
*v"e could hear good, sound reaseins
for or against annexation and vice
versa.���Yours, etc.,
FAIRPLAY.

I week before the great day came,
he had a dream. He dreamt that

fields and began ihooting rabbits ami

the gun, and away went the pour rabbits, without giving him time to hit
them, though lii- cruel bullets rli<1 kill
a link- bird. "Bravoi" said Tom.
rather pleased lee think hu was so
clever with his gun. "I will take this
bird In.nu.- and took him fur dinner."
But just when he was pulling the
bird iiit'e the bag he was filled with
fear to find all the rabbits had come
back again.
"Caleb him!" said one. "Hold him
tight," saiel another. "He shall go tee
priseeti for this." said a third. And,
before Tom could run away, he found
himself, quite suddenly, inside a small
cage, with Ins hands and feet chained
together, Thc cage was on a kind of
wheelbarrow, and the little bird he
had -b"t lay in front, Tom had hardly
noticed all this when one nf the rabbits lifted the handles e,f the barrow
and began lee wheel him away. All
the other rabbits crowded around,
shouting every now and then: "Take
him to the judge! Take him to the
judge!" Poor Tom's heart beat fast
with  fright,    "Oh,   I   wish   I  had not
had thai gun,'' he said.   "I wish "
Rut the barrow stopped suddenly. He
was in front of the judge, and the
judge was a very fierce looking old
rabbit indeed. "Here is the prisoner," said a voice behind Tom. "We
caught him shooting at us and thc
birds." "He shall get what he deserves," said the judge.    "I shall send
him for a year and a day to " But
before Tom cnuld hear mnre. the

Johnny's Pudding:   A New Game for
Any Number of Players Above Five
Johnny  is  the  leader  of   the  game.
) All lhe other players (except one
called "Old Greedy," who goes into a
! Corner of the room until later in the
i game) take the names of various ingredients in a plum pudding. Johnny
has a list of these,  and calls succes-
, sively:    "Johnny   wants  his  raisins,"
i "Johnny wants his suet," "Johnny
wants his flour," "Johnny wants his
butter," and so on,  and each player,
I when  thus  called,  takes  his  place in
J line behind Johnny. When all are arranged in this order, Johnny cries,
"Johnny's going to mix his pudding,"
and, followed by his train, jumps, hops
and runs about the room. Suddenly
Johnny claps his hands, upon which
the players quickly form a circle
rentnd him with joined hands, and lie
says, "Johnny's going to stir his pud-
jding," and they all dance round him
until he stamps with his foot, when the
j dance stops, and he cries, "Johnny's
going to eat his pudding," upon which
I "Old Greedy" rushes up shouting,
"No, he's not; 1 am," and tries to
break into the circle somewhere under
lhe joined hands. Should he succeed,
he becomes Johnny, but if he fails
after trying four times Johnny cries,
"The pudding boils over." and the
pudding circle breaks up and runs to
get seated, while Johnny pursues "Old
Greedy" and chases him out nf thc

Teddy's  Fright
Uncle Jack hail just come back
from a long, long journey. He had
been all round 1 lie world, and as he
I..Id little Ella anil eight-year-old
Teddy all the strange things which
he had seen, their eyes grew big anil
round with wonder. Best of all lhe
stories, Teddy liked to hear about the
snakes which Uncle had seen in thc
jungles eef India, eer in the wild forests
of South  America.
"If I saw a snake 1 would be very
brave: I would lake a big slick and
kill it," Teddy said. He was a very
little boy, and rather vain.
Uncle emly laughed, "Ii you saw a
big snake you would try to run away,
Teddyj anil perhaps if you saw a little
snake ye m would not be any wiser
than some of lhe tiny black children,
who try to pick them up anil find out
that little snakes are inst as hail in
their way as big ones."
"Are they?" said Teddy; and Uncle
told him ot the different kinds of poison.,us snakes which looked so innocent and did so much harm.
One day Teddy came running indoors with baby Ella iu his arms. "A
snake!" lie said as soon as he could
speak.
"Where, Teddy?" said Uncle Jack.
"In the grass," Teddy sobbed. "A
little  one,   L'ncle Jack."
l'ncle Jack lifted Teddy 'in to his
shoulder ami went out into the gar-
ilen. "Let us both find it, Teddy,
boy!"
L'p nearly six feet above tlie ground
Teddy grew brave. "Just about here,
L'ncle Jack. There it is! Is it a little
karail. L'ncle?" Teddy was very pleased to be able to say the name of one
'el   lhe  poisonous snakes.
"Oh, Teddy, Teddy!" Uncle picked
up the pretty little light-brown e.bject.
It began to twist itself round his fin-
ger>. "It's a blind-worm, e.r slow.
worm as some people call it, and can't
hurt anybody.    Look!"
Teddy hung his head in shame.
"And I  was not brave a bit," he said.
"Yes," Uncle Jack answered. "You
were brave; you could have run faster
without  Ella!"
"Why, I would not have left Ella!"
Teddy said.
"Ah. then. T think after all ye>n were
very much brave, than you knew.
Teddy, because that is one mark of
real bravery���to care first for the
weak and  helpless"

Youth

is the 'one lo acquire information, so
that we may show it off in after years
and oaralyze people with what    we

till he gets a whole lot of knowledge,
] and then in later days turn it loose in
i an    abrupt manner.    He will    guard
against telling what he knows, a little
at a time.    That is unwise.    I  once
knew a youth who wore himself out
; telling people all  he know  from day
i lo   day,   so  that   when  he  became  a
bald-headed  man  he  was utterly ex-
j hausled and didn't have any thing left
j to  tell  anyone.    Some  of thc  things

Red and Black Rain
In   certain   parts  of  Spain    during
i last  winter  red  and  black  snow  fell.
The phenomenon is explained as being
; due to the presence in the atmosphere
!in  unusual quantities of certain  min-
; eral   salts.     History  mentions  a   day
i wdien "the heavens rained blood."    In
the  Middle Ages such an occurrence
was  accepted as predicting    war    or
famine,  or,  at any rate,  shedding of
' blood.    The  presence of a micro-or-
' ganism   seems  always  to  accompany
i red   rain.     In  volcanic   regions  gray
| hail  is  relatively  common.    In  Sicily
this   has   been   observed   very   often,
! because  the  higher layers  of the atmosphere  arc  filled  with  ashes  from
Mount  Etna.    During the    past century  there  have  been  black  rains  in
1 England twice, and on both occasions
' the color was due to the presence of
micro organisms.
A curious fall of red snow is observed sometimes in the Alps iii
soring, but black snow is a rarity.
This spring in the mountains that
surround the Valley of Emmen snow
of a dirty grayish black has been noticed. It formed a crust of snme
centimeters in thickness and extend-
| ed over the white snnw which hael
fallen on previous days. This strange'
occurrence has not been satisfactorily
explained, but it is supposed that the
volcanic ashes from Etna were carried by the winds and precipitated by
the  dampness  nf the  air.

annual production of honey in the
L'nited Stales amounts to the value
.if $20,000,000. Bul, according to the
Bureau of Entomology, their production of honey is not the most
valuable service that bee1- render, since
their work in fertilizing the blossoms
of fruit trees is worlii more than
$20,000,000 every year. Because of the
recent development of contagious disease among bees, il has been recommended that apiculture be nol popularized, but rather lhat it bc confined

dollars, the lieddtr is enabled in his
turn to secure a loan to assist him tei
buy e,r build, to pay off a mortgage
bearing a high rate of interest, or io
otherwise improve and devehip his

The plan rff operation is very simple'; when the aggregate of the monthly contribution's is sufficient a loan is
made, each Contract Holder in the
series being entitled to his loan in
numerical order, credit being given
each borrower for amount of his
contributions less a small sum for expenses as provided for in the contract. The borrower then repays
$7.50 per month and interest on each
$l.f)00 borrowed, giving him ten and a
half years in which to repay the loan,
interest being charged at only 5 per
cent, per annum. A feature of these
mortgages is thc provision under
which the whole or any part of the
indebtedness may be paid at the time
of any monllilv payment without any
bonus be'ing charged.

Cromwell House, Highgate, England, whose famous staircase is in
danger of American acquisition, faces
Lauderdale House, which dates from
the year of Charles II.'s Restoration.
This mansion of "the tyrant deputy
of Scotland" appears to have been extensively loaned to Lauderdale's Royal master, and abounds with legends
of Nell Gwynne, possibly the best of
Charles' harem. Lauderdale House
now serves as the refreshment pavilion of Waterlow Park. In the wall
of that pleasaunce a tablet marks the
spot where formerly stood the cottage of Andrew Marvell, the poet,
patriot and friend of Milton. It was
abolished in the late sixties, when the
property came into the possession of
Sir Sydney Waterlow.
A Queenly Rebuke
"Queen Victoria once administered
a particularly apt rebuke to a certain
Mistress of the Robes. A day and an
hour had been appointed for a certain
public ceremony in which the Queen
was to take part. The hour had arrived, and of all the Court the Duchess
alone was absent. The Queen gave
vent more than once to her impatience,
and at last, just as she was about to
enter her carriage without her first
lady-of-honor, thc Duchess, in breathless haste, made her appearance,
stammering out faint words of excuse.
'My dear Duchess,' said the Queen,
smiling. 'I think you must have a bad
watch,' and she unloosed from her
neck the chain of a magnificent watch
which she herself wore, and passed it
round the neck of the offender."���My

A Hindu's Strange Vow.
Hindus    have   many ceremonies in
connection with their hair.    In times
of    sickness    both    men and women
I may vow to a certain god that, in the
event  of  recovery,  they  will  make  a
i pilgrimage to its shrine and offer up
j their hair. When such a vow is upon
a  man, he will not shave at all. but
| allow all his hair to grow, until he
may bc able tei make the pilgrimage
and carry into effect his vow. As a
rule, a Hindu's head is clean shaven,
except for a top-knot of greater or
less size.
Some only shave portions of the
scalp, and leave the hair at the back,
which is generally twisted into a
knot. One man, seen recently, had a
great mass of thick, tumbled hair. It
seemed as if it stood on end in the
front. When asked the reason, he
said he had made a vow to a god that
if that god granted him a son he
would dedicate his hair. The son had
been granted, and now he was allowing his hair to grow in order to go to
the shrine of the god invoked, and
with due ceremony be clean shaven.

WOOD BLOCK
PAVEMENT
Wood Pavements Make Cool Streets
Everybody realizes that some pavements
seem to refract more heat than others. Sheet
asphalt, for example, is notoriously hot, and
under a summer sun throws up a tropical heat
which is distressing.
The city chemist of Trenton, N. J., has made
the first scientific examination of this point.
Samples of the various pavements were built,
thermometers were installed, and records
taken at hourly intervals for twenty-four
hours. The results showed that sheet asphalt
and asphalt blocks were the hottest pavements.
Sheet asphalt averaged five degrees higher
than wood block, and reached its highest temperature an hour earlier.
The advantage of this coolness of wood
block pavement to merchants in business streets
must bc obvious. Pedestrians instinctively
avoid the streets which seem hot, and the effect of a hot pavement on retail trade on hot
summer days must certainly be considerable,
on the same principle that the shady side of
the street is the best for summer trade.
Wood Block Pavement has the extreme advantage of noiselessness and great durability
under heavy traffic. Competitive tests have
repeatedly shown it to be superior in durability
to granite block, which formerly was the most
durable pavement known. On streets like
Broadway, New York; Dearborn Street,
Chicago; Tremont Street, Boston; and Market Street, Philadelphia, it is nu.v demonstrating the superiority of its resilient resistance
to the hammering of heavy traffic.
On a few days of the year, under rare storm
conditions, such as a light, dry snow or a thin
sleet, wood block pavements furnish inferior
footing to granite blocks, but. the wood block
is no worse in such weather than sheet asphalt
or brick. On other days of the year, wood
block pavement attracts traffic, for drivers
find that in proportion to its smoothness it
furnishes superior footing, and permits greater
speed and heavier loads than are possible with
any other type of pavement.

his pleading he had several times pronounced thc word "enow" for enough.
"Mr. ���," the judge remarked at
length, "in England we sound the

"Vera weel, ma lord," continued the

A Harvard student, who, for obvious reasons, does not care to have
his name appear, passed up this one:
"A cousin of mine in the western part
of the State came to Boston for a
visit, and dropped out at Cambridge
to call on mc. He asked if he could
bare my room with me that night,
and I told him he could if he came in
early enough. He started for a theatre, and when midnight came without
any trace of him I called in my regular room-mate, who had sought quarters elsewhere to make room for my
cousin. I decided that my relative was
ge,ing to make a night of it in town.
"We had hardly got to sleep, however, when he came in, packing a highly flavored breath. We said nothing,
anil he soon climbed into ttw led with
us. Everything was quiet for a few
minutes, when suddenly he sat up, put j
his mouth close to my ear and wish-
pered: 'Jim, there arc six feet in this
lied!' 'Forget it,' I said, 'you're
crazy.' With that he climbed out,
groped his way around to the foot of
the bed and began to paw our feet.
'You're right,' he said, after a minute.
'I've counted 'em and there's only
four.'"

A fellow-passenger occupying a
seat in a railway coach behiivl the
late Archbishop Ryan, of Philadelphia, and Bishop Blank, of Mississippi, both members of the Roman
Catholic hierarchy, became much interested in the fact that other of the
passengers accosted the reverend
gentlemen by differing titles. Finally
he leaned forward and deferentially
began to question them.
"Excuse me, gentlemen," he said,
"but I would like to ask you a question."
The archbishop turned with the
genial smile to be expected from one
of his large and benevolent physi iue
and said:
"It shall be answered, sir, with
pleasure, if possible."
"Well," said the man, "I notice that
you, sir, are accosted both as 'Arch'
and 'Your Grace,' while this gentleman," turning to Bishop Blank, whose
thin, ascetic figure contrasted sharply with that of his travelling companion, "is always called 'Bishop.'
Now I have noticed also that you
both wear the same clerical cut of
clothes and that you both wear a gold
cross, chain and signet ring, and I am
puzzled to know just what is the difference between you."
"Why, my dear sir," replied the
archbishop, with a broad smile and
comprehensive gesture, indicating the
magnificent curve outlined beneath
his clerical waistcoat, "the main difference is. as you see, only a matter
of 'arch.'"

Why Should I Buy on Bridge Street?
Because   Bridge   Street   is   the
backbone of the City.
Because   developments   are   at
hand that will cause prices to
soar.
Because it will eventually become the main artery for the
conveyance of freight and merchandise to and from the North
Arm harbour.
Because every lot is high and
dry, with a Southern slope.
Because title is good, being indefeasible.
Because it is a future carline
route.
Because thc centre of a growing
city is always a good place to
invest in.
Because of its proximity to the
North Arm freshwater harbour.
When you buy, buy right!
Because this district will eventually outstrip in value all that
which lies between 30th and
Rosenberg Road.
WHY?
Because the incoming industry,
which never fails to follow the
line of shipping will cause the
vacant land to bc solidly built
up with warehouses, elevators,
and wc hope factories, as factory sites arc cheap here.
Because prices and terms arc
well within YOUR reach.
Lastly, because you don't have
to go "off the map" to inspect
the property. Simply take the
car to the corner of Main Street
and River Road and walk west
eight blocks. Our man resides
there, and will be pleased to
see you.
Bridge Street is as Good as Gold!

The illustrious baby is a brown filly,
and in the opinion eef a local expert
who had the privilege of seeing it the
other day, is one of the best-looking
things of its kind that has yet appeared. Mr. Swarts, who owns the
| filly and her dam, Darkey Hal, has
named the newcomer Louise Hal, in
honor of his wife.
Darkey Haly, by the way, will never
be raced again; in fact, according to
her owner's present plans, she will
never be harnessed again. The mare
looks fine at the present time, and it
is Mr. Swarts's intention to keep her
for breeding purposes.

The Football Association, wc are
told, is considering the most appropriate method of celebrating its
jubilee. It might be worth while for
its councillors, before coming to a decision, to look back upon the history
of the game under their rule, and ask
themselves whether all is well with it.
I venture to say that if they are honest with themselves they will be forced to the conclusion that the morality
of professional football was never at
a lower ebb, and that the tone of
everyone concerned���directors, players, officials and spectators��� has deplorably deteriorated within the last [part going its individual way to pro-

The Chemical Production of Life
Everything in nature is connected
and in close relationship. Thc divisions
established by man in nature, and
classified by him as botanical, mineral-
ogical and zoological, exist in the mind
rather than in fact. All the formations
of animate or inanimate matter, every
manifestation of the teeming life of
earth freun the rudimentary alga, the
tiny moth, and the butterfly to the
ion and the eagle is a link in the chain
of life. In sonic cases it is difficult
to distinguish the animal from the
vegetable; the difference is imperceptible and so slight, sei indistinctly
marked that science hesitates to draw
thc line. The sea anemone and the
sea chrysanthemum have all the grace
and beauty of flowers and all the animation and mobility of animals; they
look like flowers, but they arc endowed with an organism which cannot be
found in any form of vegetable
growth.
Human investigation has classified
life, but has not grasped all its mysteries. Near the far-off frontiers of
life the explorer finds the enigmatical
creatures which lie sleeping between
the organic and the inorganic worlds.
These are beings so small that they
seem to bc nothing but the moss upon
the ground, creatures with transparent
bodies lying like living lace on thc tall
grass and the rocks; and still lower
are thc invisible but formidable hordes
of thc protozoa.
One member of the family of thc
vorticcllidsc produces a million young
in one day, which mature and attain
old age sixty minutes after birth and
then  rend themselves asunder,    each
others, writes  Spectator in  the  Lon
don "Daily Mail."
Probably a million people watch
professional football of one kind or
another every Saturday. One may regret that more of them do not play
themselves, or arc not able to play,
but there they are���a million people
who pay their money to sec a game
which shall demonstrate the value of
self-control, discipline, endurance and
co-operation, or it fails in its purpose.

eef sulphate of copper and finely powdered sugar jusily proportioned is
dipped in a liquid composed of water,
gelatine, ferrocyanidc of potassium,
and salt, at a certain temperature, the
artificial seed soon gives signs of
meilecular activity; it dilutes, broadens, and then stretches upward to a
height eif thirty or forty centimeters.
If the liquid is very much diluted the
stem is shorter and less rectilinear, but
its branches arc more numerous and
its ultimate form is a dwarf tree resembling a growth of coral. Vegetations produced hy chemical combinations held in still more diluted liquid
end their branches in knots resembling
leaves or fruit. If distilled water is
carefully superposed directly on a
highly concentrated liquid of a certain
composition exact counterparts of the
mushrooms of the forests appear. The
character of the final result depends
upon the chemical nature of the composition. Nitrates help to develop
pointed terminations and thorny
stems; alkaline chlorides develop
growths shaped like worms and other
combinations give equally distinct results. Greenish growths resembling
tufted.herbs or vines are produced by
iron    sulphate in  silicated    solutions.
[Sails of manganese, chlorates, nitrates,
and    sulphates  give  strange    results.
One of the plants chemically produced is a mushroom coiffed with a yel-J

| hangs em a small wdiite column.    Inj
some solutions the seed develops and
springs upward in long sinuous stems,,
and on the stems hang strangely shaped growths resembling fruit.   All these-
productions' arc living; they show alt

Paper Bag Suggestions
Interest in paper-bag cookery is increasing tu such an extent that the
following account of a practical demonstration by thc inventor of the
method, M. Nicholas Soycr, may
prove helpful to housekeepers "here,
there anil everywhere" who arc experimenting with the bags, in the
hope that this method of cooking will
add neet only tee the attractiveness and
nutritive value of the food served, but
will seelve. in part, the ever-present
problem of labor, time, and fuel.
Before the demonstration began, M.
Soycr answered many questions put
to him by people in the audience.
Then came the real demonstration.
With   great   alacrity   M.   Soyer   proceeded tu prepare one dish after another, smiling as he worked.
Four apple* wcre baked, and, with
ja bit of paper torn away from thc top,
were placed on silver trays and passed
about the audience. All agreed that
they were tempting and looked forward eagerly to the next dish���eggs
and bacon. Monsieur placed some
rashers of bacon in a bag, and put it
in the eeven, leaving it for five minutes. Then he tore a round hole in
the upper side and broke seeme eggs
lever the bacon. The bag was put
back into the oven and again left for
five minutes, and when it was taken
nut the dish certainly met the approval ief the critics present. The
bacon  was brnwn  and  crisp.
Next, with remarkable rapidity, M.
Soyer prepared several fish dishes.
Two salmon cutlets, one and a half
each, were placed in a greased bag,
with a little salt, and baked for twenty
minutes. Two slices of turbot, one
and a half pounds each, were baked
twenty minutes in a greased bag.
Whiting, covered with a little flour
and butter, was cooked in fifteen minutes, and six pickled herrings, seasoned with half a cupful nf vinegar, salt,
spice, onion, thyme, bay leaves, and
parsley, were baked in ten minutes.
One woman asked what could be
done to keep fish from sticking tee
tlie bag. "Grease more," was thc answer.
In preparing a stew of mutton, M.
Seeyer used only half a cupful of water
to four pounds eef mutton and thc
vegetables. lie explained that this
small ajaount of water was sufficient
because of the smaller chance of
evaporation. The stew was considered one of his greatest triumphs, and
it is a dish that has occasioned some
paper-bag cooks much  difficulty.
Green peas came next. A pinch of
sugar, a little salt and a cupful of
water te> each quart of shelled peas,
and one or two leaves of mint for
additional flavoring. M. Soyor remarked: "A little sugar added to am-
green vegetable brings to it the sun
of the Semth."
After roast chicken and roast neck
of mutton were prepared, the demonstrator gave his attention to a qucs-
liein that was raised concerning the
temperature of the oven. Ile urged
that the gas be turned on full for six
or eight minutes so that thc oven
might be well heated. When the bag
is placed in thc oven, the gas should
be lowered lo about half the full pressure. He told of an experiment he
had been making, using one gas stove
solely for bag ceenkcry for one week.
At the end of the seven days he found
that thc saving in gas amounted to
no less than 40 per cent. This was
partly explained by the fact that the
dishes take a much she>rter time to
cook, and partly by the arrangement
that "fish, flesh, and fowl" may be
put into the same oven without danger
of one food affecting another.
A   vegetarian   asked   whether    this
method  of cooking  is  applicable    to
. vegetarian  diet.    "Splendidly  so,"  M.
i Seeyer assured him. feir he claimed that
the direct attack which the heat makes
[em the article conked gives it a special
I flavor,   and   tlie   substance   does   not
shrink.     In   his     opinion     paper-bag
cookery should make a vegetarian diet
I more popular.
One of the novelties was custard
ice cream made in a paper bag. M.
Seeyer had prepared the custard pre-
vlousl" so he had only to freeze it
tee the required consistency. He pour-
eel the1 custard into a paper bag. clipped the bag and buttered the open
edges, so that no water might enter.
The bag was then slipped into a
second bag and put into a pail about
half filled with ice and salt, with a
grid over for protection, and it was
then covered with ics and salt and
left te> freeze. When served it proved
tn be delicious.

Hints for the Housewife
A librarian e,f long experience finds
that one of the most satisfactory
kinds of paste is made from gum
tragacanth. Buy a few cents' worth
of the kind that ceemes in flakes (not
the powdered) and soak until dissolved in cold water. Then add a few
dneps eef e>il of winterberry. A little
jar eef the mixture on one's writing
desk is far more convenient than a
mucilage bottle.

A crocheted case feir a hot-anel-cold
bottle makes an acceptable Christmas
gift. It is easy to make, inexpensive,
and more convenient than the heavy
leather case sold for the purpose, It
takes only one skein eif mercerized
cotton. The directions for making
the case illustrated are as follows:
Make five chain stitches, join in a
leiop. One double in each chain, adel-
ing one chain stitch often enough to
keep the weirk perfectly flat���every
third or [mirth stitch at first, then
every fiftli or sixth. When you have
a flat mat one row ��� if stitches larger
than the bottom nf the bottle, make
one double iu each stitch (with lit>
extra chain stitches) until the case
is two-thirds the depth of the bottle.
For the shoulder strap make six
stitches hack and forth till the strap
lis long enough, then sew to the opposite side of thc case with a wool
needle.

Prom a maid who had worked wilh
a "ladies' tailor," the following method
to steam a velvet skirt and plush coat
was learned, lhe former had been
spotted with rain and the pile of the
coat was crushed from packing. Thc
work should be done in thc kitchen
or bathroom where steam can do nee
harm. The garment, well shaken and
brushed, was put on a coat-hanger and
suspended from a fixture in thc centre
of the room, over a pail of hot water.
Three flatirons were kept in commission, as hot as possible, on thc range
or gas stove. A piece of rope put
through the handle of one of the ireins
allowed it tee be lowered carefully (tn
prevent scalding by steam) into the
pail of water. As the cloud of steam
arose, crushed places on the velvet
were brushed briskly with a clean
whisk-broom, When the steam subsided another hot Iron was submerged,
and this was continued until thc nap
was raised and the skirt or coat looked like new. Then the pail was re-
mnved and thc garment left to dry
without touching.

A circular sent out reads: "The

that the number of persons killed and
injured in accidents due to derailment,
head-on and rear-end collisions would
be very much reduced if thc trucks of
the cars were so attached to the body
that the body could not leave the truck
in case of derailment, head-on or rear-
end collision. The board desires your
company to give this matter serious
consideration so that when it is
spoken to at an early sitting a decision can bc arrived at."

Holmes, a well-known New England
capitalist, who would not allow the
ceremony to proceed, declaring that
he insisted on his wife obeying his
every wish. Bride and bridesmaids

Thc merger of the Home Bank and
La Banque Internationale is but the
prelude to a larger consolidation of
capital. It is said that negotiations
are now under way for the entry in
the Canadian field of the Colonial
Bank of London, which is about to
make an alliance with the Home-Internationale combination. It is believed that it was for this bank that
the Royal Securities Corporation
secured an option on a block of Internationale stock a few days ago.
That option lapsed, but further steps
are being taken which promise success. The Colonial Bank desires an
entrance into the Canadian field, and
is prepared to greatly augment thc
capital of the Home Bank and also to
give it a splendid connection in Great
Britain.

A Swiss gendarme. Gottfried Fischer, who has "worn" a bullet in his
heart for the last thirty years, has
just died at Zonfinguc, in the Canton
of Argovie, at his home, at the age
of 63, of a cold on the lungs. At the
age of 33. while pursuing a criminal,
he received a bullet in the heart dur-
the chase, and was taken on a hospital in a serious condition. The doctors did not expect him to recover, but
Fischer, to their astonishment, gradually became well and healthy to such
a degree that he was able to rejoin the
police corps and carry out his ordinary
duties for thc next twenty-five years,
still carrying the bullet in his heart,
as no surgeon would undertake the
dangerous, operation of removing it,
which Fischer declined to undergo
without a guarantee.

At Bedburg, in Germany, a garden
city for over 2,000 lunatics has been
established. German doctors have recognized that the method of keeping
lunatics in asylums is a mistake. The
best way to cure them, they say, is to
give them as much freedom and open
air as possible. The garden city of
Bedburg consists of 36 large houses,
each capable of accommodating 80 to
100 patients. A large farm has been
established and stocked with cattle
and horses. Everything that is necessary for a small town, in fact, is to bc
found in the newest of garden cities.
It has even got a theatre. The lunatics are free to walk about and to
amuse themselves just as they like.
They willingly work on the farm, and
the women cook as eagerly and cheerfully for the others as though they
were living in their own homes, free
from insanity. The total cost of this
ideal asylum was $2,000,000.

A hydro-aeroplane of an entirely
new type was recently handed over by
M. Beaumont, the famous French
pilot, to the representatives of the
British Navy's Flying School at East-
church,  after  an   hour's    acceptance
tests over Sheerness Naval Harbor.
The new biplane, the Donnet Levcque,
is unlike anything else amongst aeroplanes. It is, in fact, nothing short
eef ��� flying boat, which is driven
through the water at such great speed
that it rises into the air and is borne
aloft noon two dimiiAitive planes.
I'reem Ihe lower supporting surface-
are suspended two small floats, which
serve to balance the machine when at
rest upon the water. Although an extremely small machine, the Donnet
Levcque carries a passenger in addition t.e lhe pilot and ils engine, which
is suspended well up under the top
plane and can be started up by the
pilot by a lever at his side. During
the test flights the little machine,
weathering a strong wind with apparent case, remained iu the air for
over an hour.

are said to have been lowered on many
kinds of paving. The contract includes 70,000 yards eef paving, a storm

SKYSCRAPER FOR
NEW  WESTMINSTER
People's Trust Co. Will Erect Ten-
Storey Building in  Royal City
Plans for the construction of a ten-
storey skyscraper in Xew Westminster have been laid before New York
and London capitalists by the People's
Trust Company, of New Westminster.
Asked whether The People's Trust
Company had the erection of such a
ten-storey building in contemplation.
Mr. Rowland Edwards, one of thc directors of the company, said the enterprise was being considered by New
Window Dressing Competition
Considerable taste has been shown
by local grocers in this competition,
and a trip round thc various windows
is time well spent. Special note must
be made of the attractive window
display by Messrs. Laing & Fiddes,
Twenty-eighth and Main Street.
Royal Crown Soap has been given
thc preference in this instance, and
this firm have ingeniously built a tower with eight turrets. In the centre
of, the main turret is a clock, which,
wc understand, is intended to inform
passers-by that now is the time to
buy. The window is neatly finished
off with bunting, and in the centre is
a large mirror on which is sketched
the Royal Crown.
Since this firm bought over the
business some seven weeks ago, they
have shown that no trouble is too
much, if it is to add to the convenience
eef the public. Everything inside is
white, emphasizing cleanliness of the
store, and there has just been installed an expensive ham sliccr, which
should greatly add to their extensive
produce business.
Everything is being done for the
convenience of their customers and to
ensure efficient service, so that they
may bc justified in their claim to be
the leading grocers of South Vancouver.
