How Provincial Government
Views Annexation Question
Desire is to See Different Corporations Developed in Best
Interests of the Entire Peninsula
Will Again Stand for Office
To those who are unacquainted
with the annexation movement it
would seem ;is if the hopes of the annexationists were about to bc realized,
and that it is only a question of a
few months when they will be realiz
ing lu the (all the results eef such annexation, Hut there is a lerious obstacle in the way. Even if the people
were willing fur annexation���which
lias yet to be demonstrated���the Government has courteously, but firmly,
stated that they will not allow such
annexation to take place at Ihis period.
To a large extent, therefore, it is
but a waste of time for thc Council to
enter into negotiations with the City.
No one recognizes more clearly than
does thc Government that, even now,
Vancouver has more than she is able
to efficiently manage and still keep
step with any work which is required
in the development of that City. Under such conditions it is not surprising that the Government at Victoria
does not look upon an annexation
scheme with very great favor, particularly in view of the fact that it would
be only adding further burdens to
Vancouver, when that City has now
quite as much as she can carry. Therefore thc Government looks to South
Vancouver to do her share of any
development which may take place
within her borders.
Also, does the Government recognise that it would be detrimental to
the Province as a whole if such a
scheme of annexation wcre to be allowed. What the government desires
to sec, is the whole peninsula developed simultaneously. Annexation
will prove a serious stumbling block-
to this. It is well known that Point
Grey would not consent to annexation  by  Vancouver just  now,  there
fore if ilu- Government wai to allow
this annexation scheme t��� j go dtt we
would find Vancouver developing
along certain well-defined lines, cadi
ating from the centre of the City, to
end in musl cases within lhe City uf
VancouveTj while the outlying districts would re-main as at present.
On the west side of .South Vancuuver we shall have a growing, ambitious
cily in Point Grey.   The Government
foresee the future of Point Grey as
they can see the South Vancouver uf
the future. What is true of Point
Grey is equally true of South Vancouver and the olher adjoining muni
cipalitiei. It is just as much the de.
sire of the Government tee see South
Vancouver developed lu its limit as it
is true of Point Grey.
On the east, Burnaby is beginning
to become a live factor iu the development of the peninsula. Thc same
applies to Richmond.
Realizing that annexation woulil hinder and hamper thc surrounding districts in their development, can it bc
wondered at at this stage that the
Government view with disfavor any
partial scheme of annexation. Deputations have been told time and again
that fur the present annexation of
South Vancuuver will not be sanctioned. Thc must the annexation proposals can do is to keep back in-
corpuratiun, which must eventually
come. Possibly no one recognizes
mure keenly just how futile their efforts are than Ihe present Council of
South Vancuuver. When the time is
ripe for annexation, ur, better still,
amalgamation to form a Greater Vancouver, both the Government and the
people will give ready support to it.
But the time is not yet ripe for annexation ur amalgamation.
Around the Municipal Hall
Cuuncillors Third and Thomas,
along with Mr. J. li. Springford, municipal clerk, visited Portland on Saturday last. Commissioner Crehan, who
is anxious to obtain as much information as possible on street paving, took
the opportunity of accompanying the
delegation'. Thc information obtained
will prove serviceable data to work
upon at the letting of thc contracts
fur the paving of Westminster Road.
Valuable information was also obtained as'to the working of several
civic schemes. The Councillors had a
very busy day. Commencing at 9 a.m.,
they continued their investigations
wiihout interruption till nearly 7 p.m.
In the evening they wcre fortunate to
meet a representation of the nobility
eef thc Old Country, who very cottrt-
oiisly entertained them.

Vancouver Hand, under the leadership
of Mr. Thos Prentice, which discoursed a line programme of music.

Contractor Explains Position
Mr. McPhalen, uf McPhalcn Bros.,
contractors, appeared before the
School Board of South Vancouver and
explained that they had been paying
the recognized union rate of pay for
laborers, namely 35 cents per hour,
and they were not aware that the rate
in the municipality was 37 1-2 cents
per hour, or $3 a day of eight hours.
Ile promised, however, to pay the laborers at the rate current in the muni,
eipality.
As to the working on Saturday, he
offered anxiety to complete the work
as his excuse, but promised to meet
Ihe Board's wishes in this respect.
The secretary, Mr. Kirkland, read a
letter from the Department of Educa-
liein in Victoria, in which the latter
stated that they would recognize thc
name Richard McBride as applied to
e'lie of their schools, while the New
Westminster school will be allowed to
retain the name of Sir Richard Mc-
llride.

Thc announcement last week that
certain Councillors would retire has
caused quite a stir. A determined effort will be made by Councillor Elliott's supporters to get him to reconsider his decision, as they believe the
Ward could not be better represented.
Some of Councillor Campbell's
ceimmittee waited upon the partners
of the Councillor to ascertain if they
meant to really block the way to the
Councillor's return, and they wcre
considerably relieved, when, after
some discussion, they were led to understand that if Councillor Campbell
desired lei return they woulil try to

J. A. KERR, Reeve of South Vancouver
Mr. Kerr has announced that he will
again enter the lists for the chief
magistracy of South Vancouver. Previous to last year Mr. Kerr had had
no political experience. The important post was given into his keeping
on the grounds that he was a success
ful business man and a good citizen.
During his term as reeve. "Jim" Kerr
has shown in all Ilis official dealings
absolute honesty. His sterling char

Proposed Annexation Terms
The pros and cons of the proposed
annexation uf South Vancouver by the
City of Vancouver were discussed ai
a conference of lhe annexation committee appointed by Vancouver and
the Council of South Vancouver in
thc City em Monday afternoon hist.
On the basis of Smith Vancouver getting seycll aldermen anil a guaranteed special expenditure of whatever
amount might lie tee the eredil of the
Seeuth Vancouver borrowing power
after the assessments of both the
City and South Vancouver were placed on a par. both parties agreed Iu
the .terms. Beeth Councils will have
tei ratify lhe terms and there will be
the necessary ratification by the ratepayers.
Considerable discussion look place
on the question of representation and
the monetary returns which South
Vancouver might expect. Aid, Baxter admitted thai the City would be
witling to annex South Vancouver
without   paying   anything,   anel     lhe
City representatives declined to guarantee any fixed expenditure an una lly.
though they were asked to bind themselves tei spend $1,500.01*1 yearly for
three years in South Vancouver, In
view of a deadlock it was finally
agreed, in order io endeavor to secure absolute equality, thai three val
uators be appointed to bring in a report, that the assessments of the
municipality and the City be pul in on
that basis, the City agreeing I" give
South Vancouver ihe moneys the
municipality is entitled to. and that
the negotiations feir annexation be
proceeded with. This was moved hy
Aid. McBeath, and carried unanimous*
During lhe conference Councillor
Elliott stated thai there was evidently a mistake aboul the assessment of
Semth Vancouver, giving credence to
a statement by City Assessment Commissioner Painter. Il was line that
ihe assessment 'ef ihe main streets
was high. 1ml taking it all through
he did not believe il'ai tin- assess
ment was any higher than the assessment  of  Vancouver.
The Cily representatives thought
that Suiiih Vancouver should be satisfied villi five representatives, Inn
later agreed lo ilu- seven.
While noi willing tei agree to re
move the cemetery within the near
future, the aldermen said they would
certainly wurk towards getting a new
one. They also agreed to keep mi as
far as possible tin- municipal staff of
South Vancouver.
Al lhe SUggi stioil of Ree\ e Kit: .
ii was decided ie, press i"r legislation

NEW SOUTH HILL BAPTIST CHURCH
There   is   a   possibility   Hial   li:
Vancouver will a   few years hence be
faee   lee   face   with   a   water   famine,
owing  to  the   fact   that  land  up   Sey
mour  Creek  may  be    sold    by    the
owners  of  the  property.    This   prop
e-rly  ha-  been  offered  te,  the  City of
Vancouver,  but  it  is understood  on
unimpeachable    authority    that    the!
owners will  not  wait  more than   live
weeks,   at   the   most,   fur   an   answer
freem  flic  civic  body,  and  even   then
there   must   be   (he   guarantee   that   a'
bylaw  for the raising uf the amount
necessary   fur   thc   purchase     uf    the
properly will bc submitted to thc rate-.
payers at the forthcoming municipal
elections in January.
In an interview with thc agent of
Mr. D. A. Robinson and the Hofius
Estate, "The Chinook" was informed
lhat the owners had been approached
by a private corporation for the sale
of the lands, but that the proposition
had been laid over pending a decision
by thc City Council.
"It is a fact." said the agent, "that
the timber may be removed from the
creek and thus deprive Vancouver
and district of its watershed facilities
Continuing, he said ; "In 1906 a
charter was granted for the construc-
tieen of a railway on Seymour Creek.
Mr. Robinson and the executors of
the Hofius Estate are practical railway men. having built railroad lines
in different parts of the American
continent. Backed by a Xew York
firm they will probably build a line up
Seymour Creek, and all the timber
will be removed. This timber equals
the best in the country, and it stands
in thickly wooded areas,
"Of course it is recognized that a
big blow would be dealt to Vancouver
and district, but. nevertheless, business is business the world over. It has
been said that the City of Vancouver
might institute expropriation proceedings for a part eif the property;
bul lei me say here that any such
slep would be fought out to thc end,
and having regard tei the (erms under
which lhe properly was deeded to the
present owners. I dei not think the
Cily would succeed,
"Bin. lor ihe sake of argument, lei
il Ik- assumed that the City would
win. What would it gain? H might
get a lew hundred acres, which would
In- flooded. The resull would be that
the dam would cause tin- water to
lill up all lhe nearby creeks and surrounding territory, and consequently
there would be no way iu which the
property owners could gain entrance
eer  egress  to their own  lands.
"1 nder    such    circumstances    the
City would I e compelled to pay a
huge sui . foi cu iipi n iation, and this
would probably be found to be
greater than ti,.- total cost involved
if il took the whole Of the property
from lhe- owners. Ai present the
owners are only inclined t.j sell the
wheele of iheir holding. It must be
all or nothing."
Further particulars gleaned by
"Thc Chinook" show thai in many
parts of the City tlie water pressure
"ii (lie- high levels is not all that can
be desired. There is also a grave
danger that in case of a big lire there
would be insufficient water to battle
wilh the Aatnes.
Then there are the adjoining municipalities tei consider, and in this respect South Vancouver stands preeminent.
Nearly all the adjoining municipalities are dependent on Vancouver
feir their water supply. The present
supply is inadequate, and all the municipalities have been clamoring for a
system which would stretch through
Greater Vancouver in its entirety.
This can unly be done by having
greater watershed facilities, and they
can only be obtained by buying land
which could be flooded and made to
hold sufficient water to at all times
be adequate lo meet demands.
Should the owners grant a right-of-
way up the creek for a railway, it
would mean that they would secure
a few hundred thousand dollars. Assuming that the city took over this
property it could then sell the right-
of-way tu the railway, which could
be placed on thc credit side of the
ledger against the debit placed een the
either side for the purchase of the
whole  property.
Of course, before taking such a
step the City would have to be satis-
lied that no contamination would result from the construction of such a
line. This, it is claimed, is of paramount importance, the clarity and
pureness eif Vancouver's water always having been spoken of with admiration.
Even if there was no sale lee the
railway, the City and adjoining municipalities would still possess a valuable asset in the acreage and timber.
Prominent ratepayers declare that
the City Council and the district
Councils acting in conjunction we mid
be wise in buying the- properly now
thai the price is much lower than it
will inevitably be in a lew years.
"Greater Vancouver needs a better
water supply, ami there must neces-
sarily be better watershed faciliti -."
said eme preeminent  citizen.

Short History of Work
in April. 1908. Mr. and Mrs. Frank
Birkett organized a Sunday School in
their own home on the North Arm
Reiad (mew Fraser Avenue) with
twenty-six persons. Thc school soon
outgrew the limits of thc home, and
they had to move into the Municipal
Hall.
On April 1. 1909, Rev. VV. M. Redman fwhei is still the pastor! conducted the lirst preaching service of
any church in the district. It was
simply a work of faith, the people being too few to promise any support
outside thc Sunday offerings.
The pastor gathered together about
fourteen Baptist people and organized
them into what is now known as thc
South hill Baptist Church.
At thc same time, on Sunday afternoon the pastor started preaching
services at East Collingwood and
Cedar Cottage. Al both places wc
now  have   Baptist   Churches.
Thc work at South Hill grew so
fast that it was necessary for the pastor to devote all his time there. A
lot was given by Mr. and Mrs. Birkett
(which  has  since increased  in  value.

from generous friends were gathered,
and -"mi a suitable building for worship was erected, But within a year
anel a half this building had I-i 1" enlarged and a separate "ite buill to
meel the needs of the smaller
children.
In the meantime ihe Home Mission
Board, recognizing ilu- greatness of
lhe work, kindly .elTe-reel to pay half
the pa-tor's support. The church,
thus helped by the Board, was able
ie. lake- another step forward, ami at
lhe advice of ihe pastor secureel a
double corner one block off thc car
line on Fifty-second Avenue, where
the new building now sianels
Shortly after this thc City Extension Society offered to meet the balance of $1400 due on the lots, provided
thc church would become self-supporting.    This was agreed-to.
Iu April. 1912, the corner-stone of
thc new building was laid by Mr.
John Morton. The congregation
now- have one of the very finest
church buildings in thc Municipality,
costing about $25,0110. The membership is steadily increasing, a number
now wailing for baptism. The Sun -
elay School section is one eif the best
that can be found anywhere in the
city and has a membership of over
two hundred. This was the first
Baptist cause in South Vancouver,
and Baptist and other friends will respond in helping to meet responsibilities at this time. Thc sum of
$5000 is required immediately. Donations and pledges will bc thankfully
received by thc building .rommittee.

'1 hi*  year  lias  easily  eclipsed any

ut  residences  erected in  this  clmice
residential district.
The palatial resilience of Mr. F. .1
Hart, built in a design "i tbe Old!
English country lie<u=ea, standing in
the centre of a beautifully prepared
park, overlooking li<>ili Deer and Bur-
naliy Lake, is easily the leader in ihis
year'.- residence!. The outside is I'm.
���sbed   in   rough   plaster   een   metallic
lath with pillars and foundation trimming of cobble stone. The many
large gables are pannelled with wood
painted a dark brown, The inside is
finished in a most elaborate and costly
style, and reflects great credit upon
the laste of the owner and architect,
and the ability of the builders. When
completed it will cost between $5(),0UU
and $60,000.
To the south of Deer Lake, and on
the brow of the hill overlooking the
lakes and the greater part of Xorth
Burnaby, Mr. J. Wysong is putting
the finishing touches to bis large
residence on Sperling Avenue. The
heavy stone foundation and veranda
trimmings give this home a very substantial appearance. From the outlook deck on the top of the roof a
charming view can be obtained of the
surrounding country for several miles.
Cle se by, also on Sperling Avenue,
Mr. T. McCabe, of Vancouver, is lay-
in- the foundation of another splendid
rcs! lence, while several people have
l:i ily been procuring sites feer future
homes.
On thc south shore of Deer Lake
Mr. R. Edgar has just completed a
residence at a cost of about $12,000.
The location of this lovely home is j
m.est charming, and Mr. Edgar is to
bc congratulated on the forethought
and enterprise he has shown ih the
selection of the site and general lay-
nut of home and grounds. The house,
outbuildings and grounds are elaborately lighted by an electric light
plant on tbe premises.
Buckingham Avenue, east of Sperling Avenue, has had its share of the
improvements during the year. Mr.
Clayton has completed his spacious
home at a cost of about $6,000, while
close by Mr. Calvin, of Vancouver, is
lushing to completion bis magnificent home, which, when completed,
will cost from $10,000 to $12,0(10.
A little further Up the avenue, Mr. J.
D. Shearer has chosen a charming
site in a natural park for bis new
home, the foundation of which was
begun last week. When completed
it will have cost Mr. Shearer from
$8,000 to $10,000.
I hi the Ceporly property. Mr. Anderson has built a magnificent home
overlooking the lakes, while Mr.
Mather has the feitmilatioii walls ready
to receive the superstructure of
another home that will compare very
| favorably with any other in this -extremely exclusive locality.
Still further west on Douglass
Road, Mr. Robert Potitifex is putting
the finishing touches on a tasty bungalow that he hopes soon to occupy.
Several bungalows and cottages in
the vicinity eif Roberts anil Rayside
Streets also are evidences that the
people are grasping the advantages
that  this  charming district affords.
The building of a freight shed at
Burnaby  Lake Station by the  R.  C.

Burnaby Horticultural  Society
A   meeting   of   those   interested   in
the beautitication of Burnaby was
held in the Municipal Hall, Edmonds,
on Wednesday evening last for the
purpose nf taking the initial steps towards the organization of a horticultural society.
It was felt by many of those present
that with the unsurpassed climate and
excellent facilities for the production
ol" fruit, flowers, and vegetables, Burnaby should hold an annual Flower
Show. The Agricultural Exhibitions
and Fall Fairs are usually held too
late in the season for the best of the
flowers. Mr. A. V. MacPherson was
in the chair, and Mr. W. S. Vivian was
elected secretary pro tern. It was
the unanimous decision of those present that such an exhibition should be
held, and it was also suggested that
the net proceeds be donated to the
Victorian Order of Nurses.
A strong committee was appointed
to make arrangements for the next
meeting, which will be held in the
Municipal Hall on Wednesday,' October 23, at which several men, prominently identified with horticulture
and fruit-growing, have been invited
In be present and advise as to the
best procedure to follow to obtain
thc best results.
Boy Strays from Home
Becoming tired of his hum-drum
life at his home on Cariboo Road,
burnaby, Edward McCarty, the eight-
year-old son of Mr. Jas. McCarty, decided to see more of this world on his
own account. Accordingly on Thursday of last week he shopk the dust
of his parental home off his feet and
sallied forth. Becoming alarmed at
liis non-arrival in the evening, a search
was instituted, and thc police were
informed of lhe disappearance. Sergt.
Lyne took the matter in hand, but it
was imt until Sunday evening that
any trace could be found. He was
then discovered by tbe police comfortably domiciled in a motor boat
on the river, near the C. P. R. Depot,
Xew Westminster. It is surmised
lhat some parties have been supplying
him with lhe necessaries of life while
he was occupying his newly found
home. Tbe police are investigating
this phase of the case.
Victorian Order of Nurses
About thirty-five Burnaby ladies
met in the .Municipal Hall on Friday
last. October 11. ami took up ill earnest the work of organizing lhe Burnaby branch. President Mrs. .1. D. McGregor occupied lhe chair.
After considerable discussion it was
decided lo divide lhe municipality in-
le. districts for lhe purpose of making   a   heeiise tee-hems-   canvas,   asking
ior annual subscriptions eef Si  each.
By this means it is hoped to find oul
what support is likely from Ihe pen
pie anel lhe number of nurses that can
be supported. These district canvassers are In report at the next general meeting, t" be held em Friday,

Burnaby Council
After months of patient waiting
and wondering on the part of tbe
ratepayers, lhe Council have at last
made public their position in regard
to the Debenture Bylaws.
They now state that the Road Bylaw, for $250,000, and tbe Sidewalk
Bylaw, for $50,000, are invalid, as sufficient time had not elapsed between
the receiving thc first and second
readings of these bylaws and their
ratification by the ratepayers. Consequently it is impossible to get any
firm to ourchase these debentures, and
as a result they will have to be resubmitted to the people.
Another bylaw that will soon be
submitted to the ratepayers will be
for the purpose of raising lhe funds
necessary to go ahead with the paving of Kingsway, Engineer MacPherson brought in his report on this
matter on Monday night last, i-i which
he recommended the paving of a 30ft.
roadway from Boundary Avenue to
Edmonds Street, and a 45ft. roadway
from   there  to   Xew    Westminster.
Along the latter part the B. C. E, R.
interurban tracks are laid, and the
increased width is lo allow for the
double   tracking  of  this  portion.

had been assured by lion. ThOB. Tay.

providing  tlie work is carried out  in
I a manner satisfactory lo the depart'
ment.
Councilleir Fattvcl has given notice
that at the next meeting of the Council he will move a resolution that in
future the meetings of the Council
be held at an hour in thc forenoon,
instead of at night. This is meeting
with the approval of a large number
of the ratepayers, who are looking
forward with expectancy to thc proposed change.

Miss Kemble Acts Ophelia
I have acted Ophelia three times
I with my father, and each lime, in that
beautiful scene where his madness
and his love gush forth together like
a torrent swollen with storms, that
bears a thousand blossoms on its
troubled waters, I have experienced
I such deep emotion as hardly to be
able to speak. The exquisite tenderness of his voice, the wild comparison and forlorn pity of his looks, bestowing that on others which, above
all others, he most needed; the melancholy restlessness, thc hitter self-
scorning; every shadow of expression
and intonation was so full of all tbe
mingled anguish that the human heart
is capable of enduring, that my eyes
scarce fixed on bis ere they filled with
tears; and long before the scene was
over, lhe letters and jewel-cases I
was tendering to him were wet with
them. Tbe hardness of professed
actors and actresses is something
amazing. After this part I could not
but recall the various Ophelias T have
seen, and commend them for the astonishing absence of everything like
feeling which they exhibited. Ob, it
made my heart sore to act it!

North Burnaby  Acres
"Buy acreage near a growing City," was James J.
Hill's advice when asked what he considered the best
and safest form of investment.
North Burnaby acreage is undoubtedly the best investment close to the growing City of Vancouver.
We own some of the very choicest Acreage in
North Burnaby, and will sell same in blocks of from
five-sixths of an acre to one and a half acre.
It is impossible to enumerate here the many reasons
why this property is a gilt-edge investment. We may
say, however, that our prices are not a dollar higher
than you would have to pay per acre for 40-acre
blocks, and we give you 3 years in which to pay.

Restaurant Slang at Its Limit
Waiters in the cheaper American
restaurants  posseil  a   vocabulary  of;
slang  and  a   stock   eel   ste,ries   replete
wiih humor.   There ii an old itory of
a waiter  who shouted out bis orders
in -.111-11 quaint terms thai a traveller
determined to baffle the man's in^.-ri
uity.   The waiter, however, was equal
tee the occasion, I ��� when the traveller
ordered iwo e^gs, which were to be
icrambled and served on t'east, the
waiter translated the order to "Adam
and Kve on a raft.   Shipwreck them."
Two customers, a man anil a woman, whei visited a cheap restaurant in
New York, were startled when they
gave their orders and heard the waiter
in turn shout them through a small
j window to the cook.
"Give me two eggs fried on one side
and   three   slices    eef    crisp,    broiled
I breakfast bacon," ordered the man.
"Twee cackles slapped in the face
and three squeals crisp," howled the
waiter, while lhe woman looked
aghast.
"And    yours,    madame,"    said   tbe
waiter, innocent of creating any sen-;
sation.
"I'd like a steak, well done, covered^
with onions," she replied.
"One steak, cremated and sttffocat-1
ed," again yelled the waiter.
"What would you like to drink ?"|
asked the waiter.
The woman ordered a cup of coffee,
with cream, two lumps of sugar and,
of course, wanted a spoon. The man
wanted a cup of coffee without cream.
Here is what the waiter ordered:
"Cup of mud, two chunks of ballast,
milk the Jersey, and throw in a piece
of scrap-iron; draw another in the
dark."
"Did you ever sec a Jew come in,"
said a veteran waiter in another restaurant, "go to a side table, and whisper that he wants pork chops? This
is what we tell the cook: 'Forbidden
fruit, put out the lights and chase the
rabbi I' "
At one of the health resorts in the
United States persons in declining
health would ask for invalid dishes.
Accordingly an order of milk toast
with a poached egg on top became
known to waiters as: "Graveyard
stew; tombstone on top."
In the very cheapest class of restaurants "suicide" is the waiter's term
for  a   small   steak.
Among other terms that may be
heard any day in these restaurants are
the following:
"Four on two, right and left." Two
orders of eggs fried on both sides,
placed  on  toast.
"Shorty Brown in swimming."
Short ribs with brown gravy.
"Stack of blankets."    Wheat cakes.
"Two chickens on a hill." Chicken
croquettes.
"Floating in the ocean." Poached
eggs.
One of the regular customers of a
city restaurant observed for several
mornings that, when serving the
dishes, a new waiter would invariably
get his fingers in the meat and vegetable dishes. When the aforesaid
waiter came around to the table one
morning the customer gave thc following order, supplemented with some
sarcastic   comment:
"Give me two hard boiled eggs with
the shells on, a cocoanut, and a pot of
tea; now get your fingers in 'em, will
you?"

THE   LADY   WHO   KNEW.
Once there was a Lady who had the
Repiitaiii.ii of knowing everything
that went on in the Neighborhood. '
Some of the Neighbors called her a
Busybody. Others called her a Snoop.
The Village Wag referred lo her as
] the   Human   Encyclopedia  and  Mrs.
SllClieeck.
Her facility for gathering curious j
and rare information about lhe Doings and Intentions and Motives of
the Neighbors was illimitable. She |
knew how much Kent the Smiths!
paid for their house. She knew how j
often Robinson beat his Wife. She I
knew why the Browns couldn't keep
Servants. She knew what nights in;
| the week Harrison came home late'
mil where he had been and what he >
! had had to Drink. She knew who paid
Iheir  Bills  promptly and who didn't.
Due of her Specialties was the
Amount the different Neighbors spent
for food. No one knew exactly how
she compiled these Statistics, but she
would go over to Mrs. Harrison's
and discourse for hours on what Big
Eaters the Johnsons were. Then she j
would tell lhe Gordons how the Mer-I
cers stinted themselves on Fresh
Vegetables and ate Canned Stuff all
summer. Then she would tell Mrs.
Smith how the Hendersons always had
the best of everything on their own
Table, while providing the cheapest
possible Fare for the Servants. By
some she was considered a Pest. By
others, who wcre much like herself in
spirit, but less skilful in fact, she
was used as a convenient substitute
for the Village Weekly.
One evening one of the Neighbors
went with his Wife to call on the
Gossip and her Husband. It was
Summer and the Windows were all
i open. As they approached the House,
they could hear the Gossip's Husband
talking to her in a Loud Voice in
the Brilliantly Light Library. The
Callers yielded to the inviting Temptation  to Eavesdrop.
"It's terrible!" said the Gossip's
Husband, who held in his band a
package of Bills. "They're getting
bigger every month. Take this Meat
Bill, for instance. It's nearly twice as
much as it was in August. How do
you explain it?"
"Really, dear," replied the Gossip
meekly, "I have been so busy I didn't
have the time to "
"BusyI Busy!" roared the Husband,
"Are you too uusy to know what's
going on in your own House?" Didn't
you know how big these Bills were?"
"I should know," answer the Gossip, "but I left it to the Maid; I supposed "
"Left it to the Maid"���began her
Husband contemptuously; but the
Callers did not wait to hear any more.
The   Neighbor   plucked    his    Wife's
Saved  from   Indians
"Have the children gone to school,
mother?" asked their father, Sam
Browning, as he drove up to the
ranch at full speed and called his wife
to the door.
"Yes," she answered. "Why?" as
she saw him prepare to start in the
direction of the little school, two miles
away.
"The Indians arc out," he shouted,
and then rode off pell-mell, in hopes
to overtake them and bring them
back to the comparative safety of the
prairie homestead, which was well
fortified and supplied with arms and
provisions.
It was a hot August day. As the
anxious father travelled he noted in
the northwest a big bank of clouds
that betokened rain, and, perhaps, one
of the terrible tempests common to
Wyoming in midsummer. Between
the school and home there was no
shelter but one natural pyramid of
rock which threw a jagged head upward in the air. Rattlesnakes were
rumored to abound there and it was
not much frequented. However, any
port in a storm, is a saying that holds
good everywhere, and so it chanced
that after the father had found his
boys and girl and bad started homeward, the party found the crags an
acceptable refuge. They crouched in
the shelter of a big boulder, just waiting, little Ella's face buried in her
father's sheltering arm.
At last, after an hour of bombardment,  the storm seemed to slacken.
"Cheer up," said Mr. Browning,
kindly, to his frightened little girl;
"we will be home soon."
Then his blood almost chilled in liis
veins, for, just across the chasm, a few
feet in front, he saw a chizen Indians
staring at them with malignant
triumph in each one's glance. He hail.
indeed, sought safely in a den of rattlesnakes, and he saw no way out in
any lirertion. As he drew his small
daughter, m terror, nearer, wondering
what it was best lo dei, there came a
blinding flash 'ef lightning that maele
them all gasp and throw shielding
hands to Iheir eves. It was followed
instantly by a most awful crash eef
thunder. It stunned the group for a
moment so that the rushing, rolling
sound which followed immediately on
the crash passeel comparatively unnoticed, Some bits of rock struck
the children, and Charles, a I mr
teen-year-old boy, was cut by a sharp
piece.
When the dust cleared away, an
amazing sight met their dazzling eyes
The chasm was full of lir. >kcii boulders of rock, and the place thai had
held lhe Indian band was covered with
jagged masses of stone.    At the lime
in, ..ne cued to investigate i" find
out what had really happened. It was
still thundering, lightning, and ram
ing, but in thc face of a greater nun
ace no one minded these dangers and
discomforts. They started homeward
at a brisk pace, and two days later,
no Indians having been seen, Mi-
Browning and his neighbors visited
the pyramid cautiously to find out
just what bad happened. They found
that not one Indian had escaped. 1 he
entire dozen had been instantaneously
killed. Those whom -the lightning
had spared had been crushed with the
masses of rock.
Later, geologists who visited the
place asserted that there existed evidences of ore among the rocks which
might have attracted the electricity.
Today the pyramid is a landmark, and
curiositv pointed out to all travellers
by rail'through that district.���Mary

THE ANNEXATION AGREEMENT
AS anticipated, a basis of agreement lias been arrived
at by the Councils of Vancouver and S.euih Van-
c.uner. and the fate ..i annexation will nenv. wiih possibly
some other modifications, be decided by the vote of the
people. In considering this question it is possibly best
i.e eliminate all partistriism and  view the matter freun
a purely business Boitll "' view, showing haw il would
affect the interests "I South Vancuuver.
Looking at the agreement from a Vancouver point of
view, an excellent deal has been made���one such as her
aldermen might well bc proud of. At no expense, with no
future outlays or burdens attached thereto, Vancouver is
lu annex one and a half time more territory than she
already lias, while her population is to be increased hy at
least 30,000. The bargain is so dazzling that there is no
fear of il being turned down in that quarter. South Vancouver's greatest gain, to all appearances, is to become
a submerged part of the neighboring city and bask in the
halo of lustre that surrounds tbe City of Vancouver.
According to the agreement South Vancouver is to
get seven representatives. Should she become an integral
part of the city this will not count for much,, as all interests will then be blended into one. The joint assessors
of Vancouver and South Vancouver are to meet and adjust the valuation, and where an agreement cannot be
arrived at, a third party is to be appointed to decide as to
the amount of thc assessment. As the South Vancouver
assessor will, under these conditions, be in the employ
of the City of Vancouver, the tmestjon of assessed
values will bc nothing short of a farce. Then the city
refuses point blank to allow any time to elapse before
the new taxation conies into force. This means that the
present taxpayers will have nearly double taxes to pay
next year. To the working-man who is handicapped by
the meeting of payments on bis home this would mean a
serious item.
Again, Vancouver will not promise to spend any guaranteed sum of money, but only that which Vancouver
deems should go to South Vancouver, and the basis of
that expenditure is to be taken from the basis of valuation as arrived at between the two assessors, the one assessor being the City's, the ether about lo become an employee of the City of Vancouver. Wc believe Assessor
West would do his duty in any event, but this does not
take from the gravity of South Vancouver's position.
It is but a statement of fact that Vancouver can spend
only that which she receives, and as it will bc two years
before Vancouver can reap the benefit of annexation���even
if Vancouver was willing to assist before that time,���she
is unable to do so unless at the sacrifice of her own immediate needs. And knowing that Vancouver is in desperate straits for money to go on with her own various
schemes of improvement, what chance has South Vancouver of getting that to which she is entitled until two
years have expired? Plainly, during this waiting period of
two years, improvements in South Vancouver will practically cease, and nothing but the most necessitous work
will be done. At the expiration of the Iwo yeairs, as South
Vancouver will then be an integral part of Vancouver,
who will see that the money South Vancouver is entitled
lo will be spent within her borders?
We are told that the seven representatives will see to
this. Two years hence there will be new men with new
ideas. Those of the Council today will not be of the
Council tomorrow, Two years hence Vancouver's great
schemes of dockage, her schemes of beaulificalion, etc.,
will be clamoring for more and more money. Under the
circumstances, it is only natural that these will be attended
to in preference to the needs of the outlying district!, No
guarantee beyond lhe promise already made will be given
ai i.i the- development of the Fraser River.
This, then, is the basis upon which Ihe people will bc
asked by tbe Council lu vote. W'e would ask the ratepayers to weigh carefully what benefit they may expect
to receive by annexation, also to consider thai if once
annexation is passed and assented to by the Government
which is another problem which must be solved���it can
never be rescinded. If the ratepayers consider that they
arc willing to pay the price, chief among which would be
double taxation and the retarding of all improvements for
a period of two years, it is up to them to make their bed.
Incorporation has at least the redeeming feature that
if it did not prove a success, some alteration could be
made. Once annexed by the City of Vancouver, South
Vancouver becomes tied down  for all time to come.
amc insolvent, Semlli Vancouver, t�����<��. would close ils
doors in a week's time. Surely the annexationists do not
hope that any right-minded ratepayer of Seeuth Vancouver
will lake this assertion seriously. If such were anticipated, how could they consistently advocate annexation
in the besl interests eef South Vancouver, knowing that
ils doom would only be the meere certain?
It tit the statement demands more serious consideration)
fe.r il louche lhe very crux upon thc annexation-incorporation question. The future of South Vancouver can
besl be served by creating within ils own boundaries lhe
greatest amount of business. Will annexation eir incorporation (he that? Taking again lhe statement of lhe annexationists thai a greal deal of lhe business of South
Vancouver of today is dependent upon the City of Van-
eeitiver. whal hope is there of increasing that business by
handing over what we have and resigning ourselves to
the future? Does it not only emphasize the necessity of
retaining  whal   we  have,  and  of  building  some  kind  of
government structure which will ensure additional business in the future?
Incorporation will not only ensure us what business
interests we now have, bul will put South Vancouver in a
position to make a bid for larger and more important industrial and commercial enterprises. Willi a thriving and
prosperous community it is absurd to suppose that the
sewage, water and road improvements eif Semlli Vancouver would not be as speedily and as effectively solved, if
not more rapidly, than by becorffillg a part of lhe City of
Vancouver.
Were South Vancouver financially at the end of ils
tether, an annexation proposition might bc acceptable; but
Ihe mere fact lhat South Vancouver is more fortunately
situated is but another reason why lhe future of this municipality should not be bartered wantonly away when it
has an opportunity, eif working out ils own salvation.
Wc believe that the feeling is general that South Vancouver should at some time become a unit in a Greater
Vancouver. Some go so far as to think lhat Greater Vancouver will not only embrace South Vancouver. Point
Grey, Burnaby and North Vancouver, but will also include thc City eef Sew Westminster. Can wc conceive of
that Greater Vancouver coming into being by the process
of annexation? Would it not be infinitely more to the
advantage of South Vancouver, to Point Grey and to
Burnaby to develop and to create business and prosperity
within themselves, and having done so, and so assured
their future, become parties to the Greater Vancouver
which will then be everything its name implies?
Incorporation will give South Vancouver that opportunity to develop herself for herself. Annexation will
witness the development of South Vancouver measured
from Ihe City Hall in Vancouver. Under annexation our
hopes of "The Greater Vancouver" to be vanish, and
South Vancouver can hope to be nothing greater than
a Grandview, a Kitsilano, or a Mount Pleasant.
Correspondence
// GREATER VANCOUVER
/"VXE of the reasons advanced by the annexationists wdiy
^-' South Vancouver should seek annexation by thc
City of Vancouver is the fact that, being more or less
in a state of dependence on the neighboring city, this
municipality owes it as a duty tee throw in its lot with
the city and take exactly what Vancouver may see lit to
give to South Vancouver. What better argument could
bc presented for incorporation? The mere fact that
South Vancouver is now considered in the light of a
suburb to Vancouver and. as thc annexationists argue, is
indebted to the city for much of its prosperity, should lie-
sufficient reason to satisfy the ratepayers that present
condition* arc defective, and that some form eif government which will make South Vancouver dependent upon
itself is needed immediately. Plainly, those who have
visions of greater business and prosperity in South Vancouver would not seek to further fetter this municipality
by binding it body and soul to the whims and caprices of
the neighboring corporation?
To a large extent the growth and prosperity of a municipality or a city are gauged by the business pulse. Wc have
the statement of the annexationist that if Vancouver he-
MOXEY WELL SPENT
\T O mailer how much the present investigation into tbe
* ' Municipal and School Board affairs of South Vancouver by Commissioner Crehan may cosl the municipality, it will be money well spent. The value of records
which will bc unimpeachable is not a triHe. While Ihe
investigation and audit are searching ones, the mere fact
that they are so thorough should represent thousands of
dollars to the Municipality in the knowledge that once thc
work is completed the records will be in perfect order.
I Order is being restored al the Municipal Hall, where
there has, in some respects, been chaos. While the duty
of lhe Commissioner is generally accepted as an investigation of past transactions, it represents more than that.
It embraces putting into absolute order not only transactions of the past, but the business of today comes under the Commissioner's scrutinizing eye. When once the
audit is perfected, it will do more than anything else to
restore public confidence in the municipal government of
South Vancouver.
To finance a municipality, as in the case of many a
business, oftentimes requires extreme measures. Various
causes and incidents arise from time to time which throw
the* machinery off a beaten track, and if it is shown that
in some cases tbe transactions of the past were not in accordance with a strict reading of the act, it may also
be shown that the urgency of those particular cases demanded exceptional treatment. Il will be generally admitted, however, that nothing bul a complete statement
on any of those cases, should they arise, will satisfy tbe
ratepayers, and every assistance and aid to make the investigation absolutely complete and exhaustive should
bc given to the Commissioner. Il is only by following
such a course that tbe audit which is now taking place
can reach its greatest usefulness.
The question of cost is a minor consideration. The
audit will unquestionably cost thousands of dollars, but
ibis represents a small consideration indeed when thc
ratepayers know the exact conditions which have prevailed at thc municipal governing headquarters, while
possessing the knowledge that the records will bear the
closest investigation.
Auto Speeding
Tei the liditor eef "The Chinook" :
Sir,���The ghastly work of depopulating Vancouver by means ol whal
[be Right Hon. Mr. McKcnna calls
the "modern car of juggernaut"
(otherwise Ihe automobile) goes on.
Nearly every day adds one or more
victims to the list of dead or maimed.
No penalty, no admonition, no warning seems to have Ihe least effect in
checking the destructive instincts of
owner- and drivers of the death-cars
which are running Ihrough the streets
ami overwhelming pedestrians or Involving themselves in ruin.
The Bowser law is designed to pro.
vide a remedy; bul there is no provision whereby a person convicted
once must be dealt with on other occasions with relentless vigor. So long
as the owners or drivers of automobiles are allowed to tix their own rate
of speed and attain the velocity, if
they desire it, of 5(1 to 75 miles an
hour, a driver full of booze or excited
by the rapid million of the machine
may recklessly force his ear at top
speed, careless as to the consequences
that may fall upon those who come
within  the  radius of his recklessness.
An inventor at Victoria suggests a
plan whereby the police can tell, after
the machine has been out em the road,
whether il has been driven al an illegal rate of speed. But llial will nol
meet the emergency. A man may
have been killed while the machine
was on lhe road before the time the
record is taken by the police. The
real remedy, lo my mind, lies in providing a lock that will render it impossible for a machine to reach a
greater rate of speed than the law
allows. If the law prescribes 12 or
20 miles an hour thc gear should be
"set" so that the machine may not be
driven beyond  that  rate.
Thc motor trucks that are doing
most efficient work and carrying
heavy loads from point to point, and
which, when loaded, climb hills with
an ease and swiftness that horses cannot attain, are geared at 12 miles an
hour, which is double the speed that
a pair of good horses can maintain
for a day. Autos geared at 12 miles
an hour can cover ten times the distance lhat a pair of horses can accomplish in the same time, and carry enormous loads. I do not wish to appear dogmatic when 1 contend that
the same rule should apply to autos
that is applied to steam boilers. Provide a locked governor with each
machine, and you will prevent scores
of accidents lhat are now bringing
sorrow to many households, here and
elsewhere. I feci sure that a united
effort would speedily bring about a
reform and rob automobiling of half
its terrors. Some other writer may
suggest a more feasible plan than this
for thc preservation of human life
which is now threatened by highspeed maniacs; but I feel sure that
sooner or later mine or some system
like it will have to bc adopted to render travelling in our streets safe.

Improvements on the North Arm
To the Editor of "The Chinook" :
Sir,���I notice in this week's issue
you have a cut showing a portion of
the North Arm of the Eraser River
as being the portion it is proposed to
improve for harbor purposes. As a
member of the Joint Committee appointed for the purpose of facilitating
harbor improvement on the North
Arm of the Fraser River, I wish to
make it clear to your readers that
there has been no discussion of or
suggestions made as to the location
of harbor improvements for public
purposes.���Yours,  etc.,

South  Vancouver. October 12,  1912
KING EDWARD ROAD
TO BE OF CONCRETE
HOME INDUSTRY
T^HE desire of the Council of South Vancouver is to
keep, whenever possible, work and business within
the borders of this municipality. To that spirit every ratepayer in South Vancouver will subscribe his support.
South Vancouver is rapidly passing from a stage where
it must look elsewhere to have its wants supplied. It was
the most graceful compliment the Council could pay to
thc enterprise and energy of South Vancouver business
men that official recognition of the rapidly growing business stature of this municipality was placed on thc Council records.
South Vancouver, with a population of 35,000 people,
offers a lucrative field for the business man. More especially is this true of a city or municipality where the
people are actuated with a desire to do their buying at
he.me. Of paramount importance to the life of the business man is this condition. Were the same spirit which
moved the Council to place this home industry motion
mi thc records practised by every ratepayer in South Vance mver. we believe the annexation proposals now before
thc public would bc so securely buried that not even its
ghost would come to the surface.
There are instances where the services of the outside
business deiclor must be called ill. That is only to be expected in a municipality like South Vancouver, where the
growth lias been nothing short of phenomenal. South
Vancouver can continue to attract the business man who
represents prosperity by furthering its practice of patronizing home industry. Incorporation into a city will
further strengthen the hands of South Vancouver to bid
for that business. It is life to the business man of today,
and prosperity to the South Vancouver of tomorrow.
Contract Let for Canadian Section of
International Highway to Connect
Montreal and Florida
A portion of lhe King Edward
Highway is to bc built of concrete,
the contract for its construction having been let on Seplcinbcr II, by the
Honorable J. E. Caron, Minister of
Agriculture and Highways of the
Province of Quebec. The King Edward Highway is the Canadian section of ihe international Highway,
connecting Montreal with several
large cities of the United Slates. Ultimately il is expected that this road
will continue as far south as Miami,
Florida.
It was the original intention that
the entire highway should be built
of macadam; but the Honorable Minister who has under bis jurisdiction
the Canadian branch of the work has
become interested in concrete roadways, and has decided upon this important undertaking as a good place
to try it out. Governments and municipalities arc gradually coming to recognize the necessity of a more permanent form of roadway construction. That concrete is the material
which best fulfils all the requirements
of a permanent roadway is a fact that
will ultimately obtain wortd*wide re
cognition.

Anacrcon, having received from
Polycratcs a large sum of money, lay
awake two nights thinking e.f it. After
this he returned it, saying, "It did not
pay fur the anxiety."
"What's new in the news?"
"Terrible scandal at Oldport.   It has
leaked out   that   Mrs.   Wallaby-Wombat, the society leader, exacts a percentage of her servants' tips."
llhebbs : I saw the doctor stop at
your house yesterday. Anything
serious?
Slobbs : I sheiuld say so. He came
tei collect  his bill.
"Those wicked neighbors of ours
were in hard luck," said Japhet.
"It serves them right," replied Ham.
"They stood around waiting for a
ship subsidy instead of gering ahead
and doing business as wc did."
A certain man who had once been
a painter left off painting and became
a physician. And when it was said
to him, "Why hast thou done this?"
he replied, "The errors made in
painting all eyes see and scrutinize;
but the mistakes of thc healing art
the ground covereth."
"I see you are carrying home a new
kind of breakfast food," remarked the
first commuter.
"Yes," said the second commuter,
"I was missing too many trains. Thc
old brand required three seconds to
prepare. You can fix up this new
kind in a second and a half."
"The middleman is the one who
makes all the confusion in this question of supply and demand," said the
off-hand economist.
"Yes," replied the man with thc
double chin. "Rut what arc you going to do about it? You can't possibly ignore the waiter and do business with the cook."
It is reported that the following
occurred in a small poultry store
kept by the widow of the deceased
merchant.
"I should like to sec a nice fat
goose," said a customer entering the
shop.
"Yes, sir," replied the boy, "mother
will bc down directly."

If you wish to know whether anybody is superior to thc prejudices of
the world, ask him to carry a parcel
for you. Diogenes Lacertius tells us
a story of his great namesake, that
being once requested by a certain
young gentleman to teach him philosophy, he gave him a piece of cheese
to carry; upon which the other declined his instructions on the spot.
A late attorney-general receiving a
client, who was intimate with him, in
his library, the gentleman expressed
surprise at thc number of wigs that
were hanging up. "Yes, there are
several," replied thc lawyer ; "that,"
pointing to a plain one, "is my common business wig; that my House of
Lords wig, and that my court wig."
"And pray, sir, where is your honest
man's wig?"
"Oh," replied the lawyer, "that's
not professional."

Miss Inex Milholland, at a luncheon
in Newport, lamented the loss of the

"Why did we lose?" she wailed.
"Our opponents' arguments are always so silly! They're as silly and

She smiled and added :
"Apropos of thc average social ex

a house party in Maine last week and
wired :
"Regret can't come. Lie follows

Feer many days a man lay danger
ously il! with a malady that puzzled
the distinguished specialist who was
called to attend him.
One afternoon the eminent physician appeared with eyes aglow. "I
certainly congratulate you," be said.
Tlie patient smiled hopefully. "You
mean I will surely recover?" he asked.
"Oh, no! there is no hope of that;
but if the autopsy proves that you
are suffering from an entirely new
disease, as I believe it will, we will
name thc malady after you."

"The late General Booth," said a
Salvation Army official of New York,
"often used to urge the 'down-and-
outer' to cultivate the quality of resourcefulness.
"He would illustrate this quality by
the story of a resourceful Western
editor, who found, one night, that he
had neither advertisements nor copy
for his third page. The page accordingly appeared blank, with a note in
small type at the top :
" 'This space will be useful for thc
children to write upon.'"

Scott is known to have profited
much by Constable's bibliographical
knowledge, which was very extensive.
The latter christened "Kenilworth,"
which Scott named "Cumnor Hall."
John Ballantyne objected to the former title, and told Constable the result would be "something worthy of
the kennel," but the result proved the
reverse.   Mr. Cadell relates that Con

used to stalk up and down his room
and exclaim, "By Jove, 1 am all but

The young man was convalescing
from typhoid fever, and was very
hungry. Tlie doctor promised him
that he sheiuld have something to cat
on the following day. The patient
knew he weiulil not be allowed to cat
all he would like to, but hoped for a
plate of good, steaming food.
The next day when thc nurse
brought in a spoonful of tapioca pudding, she said :
"Here is your dinner. The doctor
says that everything else you do must
be in the same proportion."
Shortly after the nurse had a call
from the sick-room of the young man.
"Nurse," he said, "I want something
to read. Won't you please bring me

A gang of Italians were employed
on a railway contract removing carlh
with wheelbarrows. While proceeding with his work one of the men noticed that the wheel of his barrow
was squealing terribly, and to put a

shouted out :'
"Halloa, Pictro! Halloa, sir!   What
thc dickens are you doing?"
"I'm greasing my barrow, sir."
"Who told you to do that?"
"No one, sir. I took it upon myself."
"Well, don't let me catch you at it

Thc farmer's mule had just balked
in the road when the country doctor
came by. Thc farmer asked thc physician if he could give him something
to start thc mule. The doctor said
he could, and, reaching down into his
medicine case, gave the animal some
powders. The mule switched his tail,
tossed his head and started on a mail
gallop down the road. The farmer
looked first at the Hying animal and
then  at thc doctor.
"How much did that medicine cost,
Doc?" he asked.
"Oh, about fifteen cents," said the
physician.
"Well, give me a quarter's worth,
quick!"  And  he  swallowed  it.    "I've

Two country youths were on a visit
tei London. They went into Ihe British Museum and saw a mummy, over
which hung a card on which was
printed, "B. C. 87."
They were mystified, and one said ;
"What do you make of that, Sam?"
"Well," said Sam, "I should say il
was the number of the motor car that
killed  him."
A man walking along thc street ot
a village stepped into a hole in the
sidewalk and broke his leg. He engaged a famous lawyer, brought suil
against thc village for one thousand
dollars and won the case. The city
appealed to the Supreme Ceiurt, bul
again the great lawyer won.
After the claim was settled the law
yer sent for his client and handed
him one dollar.
jjWhat's this?" asked thc man.
"That's your damages, after taking
out my fee, the cost of appeal and
other  expenses," replied the counsel.
The man looked at the dollar, turn

Robert Henri, thc artist, paused before a beautiful landscape at thc Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts and
said :
"Dawb, who painted this, has suddenly sprung from humble circumstances to great wealth and eminence.
Dawb made his first success in
Pans. He was diffident and abashed
m those days. When he would sally
out from his garret in the Rue Vau-
girard to a Duchess's in the Avenue
des Champs Elysees, or a Princess's
in the Rue de l'Universitc, his heart
would be in his mouth.
"They say that once, at a dinner
party at Paillard's, Dawb, the guest
of honor, didn't open his mouth from
the oysters to thc souffle.
"Finally, when the dessert came on,
the beautiful hostess smiled and said :
'Come, dear Monsieur Dawb, do say
something!'
"Dawb blushed at this challenge,
racked his brain and stammered, with
a bashful smile :    'Have you noticed,

THF DAILY PAPERS HAVE BEEN GIVING NEWS BULLETINS OF LARGE
SALES AND DOZENS OF OPTIONS ALONG BOUNDARY ROAD AND ESPECIALLY
ALONG RIVER ROAD FOR THE PAST TWO WEEKS, AND THE MEN WHO HAVE
PURCHASED LAND AND TAKEN OPTIONS IN SUCH LARGE QUANTITIES IN
THIS DISTRICT ARE THE MEN WHO THOROUGHLY POST THEMSELVES BEFORE MAKING A PURCHASE���THEY ARETHE MEN WHO GET WHISPERS AND
INSIDE INFORMATION FROM HIGH OFFICIALS IN LARGE ENTERPRISES���AND
THEY GET THESE WHISPERS A WEEK OR A MONTH AHEAD OF THE PUBLIC.
OUR WHISPER IS :   BUY AS MUCH AS YOU CAN PAY FOR OF "RIVERDALE."
THE WHISPERS REFERRED TO ABOVE HAVE NOT AFFECTED THE PRICE
AT "RIVERDALE"���OUR COMPETITORS ASSURE US THAT OUR LOTS ARE BEING SOLD FOR HALF THEIR REAL WORTH NOW. BUY AT "RIVERDALE" NOW.
IT IS THE PRICE OF A LOT WHICH DETERMINES WHETHER THERE SHALL
BE A QUICK OR A SLOW SALE���WE WOULD RATHER SELL 25 LOTS PER DAY
AT $10 PROFIT PER LOT THAN SELL ONE LOT A DAY AT A PROFIT OF $250.
FOR WE HAVE MADE THE FAVORABLE ACQUAINTANCE WITH 25 SATISFIED
CUSTOMERS IN THE FIRST CASE, WHICH IS A VERY LARGE ASSET IN THE
REAL ESTATE BUSINESS, AND IN THE LATTER CASE WE WOULD PROBABLY
KILL THE CHANCE FOR FURTHER BUSINESS. THE FIGURES ABOVE ARE ONLY
USED AS AN ILLUSTRATION.
AFTER THE PRICE IS ACCEPTABLE, THE ONE THING WHICH PREVENTS
A GREAT NUMBER OF PEOPLE FROM OWNING REAL ESTATE OF ANY KIND IS
THE TERMS. THIS MAY BE THE LAST CHANCE FOR MANY WORTHY PEOPLE
IN VANCOUVER TO BUY "RIVERDALE" ON $15 A MONTH PAYMENTS���THE
REASON WE MAKE THESE UNUSUAL TERMS IS THAT THE GREAT NUMBER OF PEOPLE MENTIONED ABOVE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE ALL CITY
PROPERTY VALUABLE; AND BY GIVING THE GENERAL PUBLIC AN OPPORTUNITY SUCH AS THIS TO OWN AND LIVE AT "RIVERDALE," THE PROPERTY
WILL BE MORE VALUABLE AS EACH RESIDENT ARRIVES.
SPECIAL NOTE : TO THE PUBLIC WHO ARE INVESTING THEIR MONEY FOR
FUTURE PROFIT, THE ABOVE PARAGRAPH SHOULD BE OF GREAT IMPORTANCE.
THE VIEW FROM THE BEAUTIFUL SOUTHERN SLOPE OF "RIVERDALE"
IS SO BEAUTIFUL THAT IT MUST BE SEEN BY YOURSELF TO BE FULLY APPRECIATED, FOR THE MOST TRUTHFUL DESCRIPTION IN COLD TYPE WOULD
SEEM LIKE AN EXAGGERATION.    SEE "RIVERDALE."
VERY FEW, IF ANY, LOTS IN VANCOUVER HAVE AS GREAT A DEPTH AS
THE LOTS AT "RIVERDALE." SOME OF THE LOTS ARE 230 FEET DEEP AND
WHEN YOU RECOLLECT THE USUAL DEPTH IS 122 FEET, YOU WILL SEE THAT
"RIVERDALE" LOTS ARE NEARLY TWICE THE SIZE OF OTHER SUBDIVISIONS.
IT IS EASY ENOUGH TO DESCRIBE PROPERTY IN LANGUAGE SO BEAUTIFULLY WORDED THAT THE PROPERTY WILL APPEAR LIKE A PARADISE, BUT
TAKE OUR ADVICE AND ALWAYS SEE THE PROPERTY-SEE "RIVERDALE."
PROPERTY IN OR NEAR A CITY THE SIZE OF VANCOUVER IS MOSTLY
VALe'JED BY ITS TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES, AND, WHILE "RIVERDALE" IS
WITHIN A COUPLE OF MINUTES' WALK OF THE EBURNE-WESTMINSTER CAR
LINE NOW, IT IS A WELL-KNOWN FACT THAT THERE WILL BE A REGULAR
NETWORK OF CAR LINES SURROUNDING THE PROPERTY IN THE NEAR FU
TURE. SEE AND BUY "RIVERDALE" LOTS NOW, FOR THESE SAME LOTS WILL
BE WORTH THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS EACH WHEN THAT PERIOD ARRIVES.
THE COST OF CLEARING A LOT VARIES WITH THE NUMBER OF LOTS TO
BE CLEARED-THE BUYING PUBLIC FREQUENTLY HAVE TO PAY FROM $75
TO $100 FOR THE CLEARING OF ONE LOT, AND HERE IS A CHANCE TO GET A
CLEARED LOT-READY TO BUILD UPON NOW-PERFECTLY GRADED AND ENTIRELY IN GRASS, BUT DO NOT FORGET THERE ARE ONLY ABOUT 25 OF

Paying the Doctor to Keep Us Well
Tile machinery in all great industrial concerns is gone over once in so
often tu see if it is in gemd working
order. Elevators are looked eever tee
see if they are safe. We insure our
houses against   lire;  our lives  against
demise.    The    only    self-protection
which the human being takes is the
pretty general habit���general at least
among intelligent people���eif going
to the dentist once or twice a year
to see if the teeth need attention.
Why should we not go a step further and employ a physician at see
much a year to keep us well? For
centuries the wise Chinese have done
this, and thc idea of paying the doctor, neit for curing the family when
ill. but for keeping it well, is spreading all over Europe. In America the
idea has yet to take hold. Is it not
illogical that we have our factories.
public buildings, schools, elevators
and cows inspected, and not our
homes and ourselves' Surely tlu
human being is equally as valuable as
OUr buildings or livestock. The
'rouble is that folks, as a rule-, cannot see the necessity of paying out
money for a doctor unless he is actually needed. Then the money very
often goes out in amounts tee stagger
the family, whereas the same amount,
Spread over ten years, say, tee pay
a deicteer as an inspector of tlie family

expenditure. It is a pity that the

doctor would agree tee visit tlie family
once every month, or two months,

idea of paying doctors to keep us

has already come in Germany, feer

The Dishonest Employer
"Is it right to carry out dishonest
schemes if your employer asks it:"
This question was asked nie by a
young woman who fills a responsible
position. Her employer is away a
great deal and she is required to
carr/ out his plans during his absence. She knuws that he is doing
under-handed work. Is she justified
in obeying hit  orders?
This in a way is difficult to answer
���but "honesty is the best policy" always. If a yieung woman of her
ability feels that the orders are dis
honest 1 would advise her to seek employment elsewhere. A veiling woman
should not make an Idol of her employer. I kneiw one who thinks her
employer is the most brilliant man
living, and his dishonesty is excitable
because "be is he." Though she is
drawing a large salary, if she stemd
in his way be would dismiss her on
the spot. But she has made such an
idol of her employer that she is blind
to her own future. Right here let me
give a hint to the experienced stenographer. There are places where a
stenographer knows so much that is
questionable about her employer's
business that he feels he dare not
dismiss her. A young weiman whose
position is held in this way is on dangerous ground. Beware of an
ployer whom you know to be
honest.

WOOD BLOCK
PAVEMENT
Wood Pavements Make Cool Streets
Everybod) realizes that some pavements
seem to refract mure heat than others. Sheet
asphalt, for example, is notoriously hut, anil
under a summer stin throws up a tropical heat
which is distressing.
The city chemist of Trenton, X. 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 bleicks were the hottest pavements.
Sheet asphalt averaged five degrees higher
than wood block, anil reached its highest temperature an hour earlier.
The advantage of this coolness of wood
block pavement to merchants in business streets
must be obvious. Pedestrians instinctively
avoid tlie 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 tlie best for summer trade.
Wood Block Pavement has the extreme advantage of noiselessness anel great durability
under heavy traffic. Competitive tests have
repeatedly shown it te. be superior in durability
to granite block, which formerly was the most
durable pavement known. On streets like
Broadway, Xew York: Dearborn Street,
Chicago; Tremont Street. Boston; and Market Street, Philadelphia, it i- now 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.

the past couple of weeks the
eyes of the baseball world have been
1 focused on the series of games feir the
world'l championship between the
Boitoll Americans and the New YOTfc
Giants. It is tbe point to which the
fail! throughout lhe United States
,,n 1 Canada turn when the season is
in full swing, and now that tin: series
,,f 1912 has engaged their attention,
tlu- affairi of tbe world may run their
regular  curse  again.
What football is to the Old Country   speertsmen, and  what  lactone  is
I ten the sportsmen eef Canada, baseball
is te, lhe fans eif lhe L'nited States.    It
is the natieitial game across the border, and with the natural tendencies
of thc American, even the glanieir e.f
an   approaching   election     has     been
overshadowed by  the stories eef the
I bulletin   boards.     In     Canada,     too,
I there has been a lot of healthy ltiter-
��� est  in  the  series which  came  to  an
'end   this   week,   feer   Canadians   have
got to like the game, just as lacrosse
is popular across thc line.
At thc lime of writing thc Boston
Americans had a distinct advantage
in thc scries, and they looked to be
the winners over the New York
champions. A victory of the American League champions for thc past
three years will open thc question eif
superiority of the two leagues anew,
and will give thc supporters of the
younger organization an opportunity to line themselves up with the
"told-you-so's. No matter how the
scries goes, it will be generally admitted that neither the National nor
the American League has shown any
signs of decadence, and that the
game is being improved with every
year. Thc contests have been replete with the very best possible, and
thc fans have had something over
which they might well enthuse.
Thc first harrier club, with a team
in the open to be formed in Vancouver, met on Thursday evening with a
large number of the members of the
newly organized athletic club in Westminster Church, South Vancouver, to
present a silver club to thc first winner of a four-miles race. There were
about forty members present, and
they witnessed a number of exercises
by half-a-dozen boys on the parallel bars, standing long jumps, running
high jumps, Indian club swinging,
and a tug-of-war. Isaac Scott has
charge of the harriers as well as the
gymnasium work, and he is to be congratulated on having such promising
young blood among these novices.
The cup is a pretty solid silver one,
to be won three times, before it will
be permanently held. It was presented by the Rev. George D. Ireland to
George Stewart, who won thc lirst
race in a very exciting finish over a
course of four miles against a field
of six competitors. Mr. Scott ran
with the novices to see that no accident occurred. Starting at the corner
of Twenty-sixth and Main, down to
Twenty-fifth, west to Ontario, south
to Eerris Road, east to Main, returning along Main to Twenty-sixth, thc
runners came in as follows : Scott,
22 minutes, 35 seconds; 1, George
Stewart, 24 minutes, 35 seconds; 2.
Guilliland, 24 minutes, 38 seconds; 3.
March, 24 minutes, 43 seconds; 4.
Macdonald, 24 minutes, 45 seconds;
5. Prowse, 25 minutes, 5 seconds; 6.
Milholm, 25 minutes, 8 seconds.
After a very pleasant evening had
been spent, refreshments wcre served
by the yieung ladies of the church,,
and it was brought tee a close by singing "God Save the King."    The boys
were  loud  in   their  praises     'if     Mr.
Scott, who directed the construction
eef the club reeeim and gymnasium,
presented the lirst cup and is superintending the indoor and outdoor sports
of Westminster Church.

Thc death at Columbus, Ohio, of
the Eel, the Canadian pacer owned by
Mr.   Prank  Entricken, of Tavistodc,
(Jut., after a three-days illness from
lung fever, removes one of the most
famous harness racers em the American continent. The animal had a record
oi J.II21 j anil in its turf career won
many notable races.
Thc "Gray Ghost" was one of the
gatnest and most honest little "wig
glers" that ever looked through a
bridle, and the breeding industry will
suffer a great loss.
For the past live years, Entriekcn's
gray stallion has bulked large in harness racing in America. This year
he showed more speed than ever before, and it was hoped that he would
retire with a record of two minutes,
something unheard of in a hobbled
pacer.
The Eel, 2.02J4, was bought by
E. W. Entricken, of Tavistock, pn the
recommendation of Dan McEwan, the
London, Out. driver. Thc former
wanted to buy a horse, and hearing
eif a good prospect in Michigan, he
went to sec it, taking McEwcn along.
The animal did not quite suit him,
but there was a grey yearling among
thc horses that caught McEwcn's eye,
and he urged Entricken to buy it. The
colt was not large, and Entricken
did not fancy him. After some urging from McEwcn, he did purchase
the pacer for $185. McEwen began
his education, and for three years
trained him at Queen's Park, London.
In those days he was known as Silver
Joe. Four or five years ago the entries in the $1,000 stallion race at the
Ottawa ice races were announced,
and among thc number was The Eel.
Nobody had ever heard of the nag,
and the bookmakers simply ignored
him. Entricken and one or two
friends were there, and they backed
the grey stallion to the limit. McEwen was up, and the pony simply
romped away with the field. On investigation it was found that The
Eel was none other than Silver Joe.
The latter was not a registered name,
and of course Entricken could register him under whatever name he liked.
From that time on he was known as
the Eel. The coup was one of thc
greatest in harness horse history in
Canada. Entricken had to get a mail
bag to take the money home.
The next year the Eel struck thc
Grand Circuit, being entered in all the
big stakes. Pitted against one of the
fastest pacers that was ever bred.
Minor Heir, the Gray Ghost showed
his metal. Thc battles between his
pair are historic, and formed one of
he most brilliant pages of turf history.
The Eel won -manyof"the classics,
finishing the first year out with a
mark of 2.02J4, and as the largest
money winner among pacers that
year. He was at Minor Heir's throat
latch, when the latter paced at Syracuse iu 2.00j{(.
From that time on, Thc Eel campaigned winter and summer, meeting
all comers and always pacing a good
race. He did not always win, but he
was always trying.
In 1911 he did not have a particular,
ly good season, but this year he was
at his best. On May 24, in a battle
with Hal B Jr., he paced the Mitchell
track in l.OlVi,. showing that he still
had his eild lick.    Since that time he
has  been   racing  constantly,  winning
many good contests..
In Syracuse he was beaten by Evelyn w., in 2.00;^; the fastest mile
ever paced by a marc in a race, and
the fastest second heat in the history
of the lurf. The Gray Ghost was
right up, and must have paced the
mile as fast as the mare, as there was
the same difference at the finish that
there was at the start. He finished
second at Detroit tee Karl Jr., and was
taken lee Columbus It was expected
that lie would take a two-minute
mark al  llns  meet.
The new  athletic grounds    at    thc
Municipal  Hall  wcre formally opened
on Saturday afternoon last   with   a
football game between the Semth 11 ill
club and the "2nd Highlanders, The
ball was "kicked off" by Reeve Kerr,
and tbe occasion made a memorable
one.
The match was very closely con-
tested neither side being able to score
until within a few minutes before full
time. Then lhe Semth Hill club rushed in two goals which were morel
than sufficient i" win.
The match was witnessed by about
live   hundred   people   showing     that j
there is quite an interest in the game.;
Actresses and Wives
There is a noticeable aversion to
settling the question as to whether
actresses make good wives. Only recently have some of the newspapers
had the question up again, but it is
110 nearer settlement than ever.
The trouble is that there are two
answers. One answer is yes. The
other answer is no, If you like a
wife, who, under thc best conditions,
is out every night and doesn't get
home till late, but who, when on tour,
doesn't get home for months at a
time, by all means choose an actress.
We have the confident testimony of
many of the profession that actresses
make excellent wives, but when we
examine into thc specific instances,
we find that about thc time they became good wives they gave up acting.
In other words, it is much the same
as asking, Do aviators make good
miners? Yes, if they eschew aviating. Do traveling salesmen make
good doctors? Yes, but not at the
same time, for when you want a doctor right quickly, you hate to be told
that he is on his annual spring tour
through the Middle West. Do newspaper editors make good arctic explorers? Do college professors make
good cabaret dancers?
Thus, after the most painstaking
and erudite examination, we find that
the question is futile. It would bc
much better to ask, Do wives make
good actresses? That, at least, offers
a chance for an argument.���"Life."
"There is one thing I notice particularly about that young man who
calls to see you," said the old lady.
"He seems to have an inborn, instinctive respect for woman. He
treats every woman as though she
were a being from a higher sphere,
to be approached only with the utmost delicacy and deference."
"Yes," said her eighteen-year-old
grand-daughter, "he's horribly bashful."
Pat was in the museum looking at
a copy of thc "Winged Victory."
"And phat may zcz call that?" he
asked an attendant.
"That is a statue of Victory, sir,"
was the answer.
Pat surveyed the headless and armless statue with renewed interest.
"Victliry, is it?" he said. "Thill,
begorry, Oi'd loike to see the other
fe low."

Whitney has a radical distrust of the

Concrete is recognized as the only material
suitable tor permanent work, and is used as the
fountlation tor all nto.lern pavements:
Concrete pavements have been laid extensively
in Canada and the l'nited States, and are becoming more popular each year. Over one half
million yards of eonerete pavements were laid
last vear in Canada, ami over two million yards
in the l'nited States.
The discovery ot" 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 eonerete base and a concrete
