Union Scale of Wages for
Workmen, Says School Board
Members of Board Investigating Charge That Some Contractors
Are Breaking Terms of Contract���New School for
West Collingwood
:: Pertinent Questions on Incorporation
\ spirited discussion took place on
the question of wages being paid to
workmen employed by contractors
constructing the Seeuth Vancouver
Si -..els at a meeting of the Seeuth
Vancouver School Hoard on Tuesday
cv ning. It had been stated that in
se line cases the union scale of wages
was not being adhered to. Architect
Bowman was questioned, but gave no
definite information, and he was instructed to produce full information
al lhe next meeting.
Quite a long time was spent in discussing a new site that the Board is
about to purchase, and ultimately a
committee was appointed to make a
soli otion out of two, the committee to
complete the purchase of the most
���uitable one. It was agreed to accept
tin' under of Messrs. Jack Bros, for
$2.W1 for the building of a two-
reie uned school at Collingwood West,
and $300 additional for outhouses.
There was a large pile of correspondence to go through���from the
llianks of an appointed official to an
application of a new aspirant for a
ianilorship. Another party wrote and
asked thc Board to buy an encyclopedia which the writer, a lady, said
hei brother had, but for which he
hail no further use. The Hoard intend to put encyclopedias in all the
solie.eels, but think it will be better to
have them all of the one kind and
Style. Patentees of new desks and of
ticn heating apparatus sent circulars
extolling the virtues of their articles.
Mi Graham, who had won a place
een the  B.  C. shooting (earn which is
geeing to Portland, asked for leave of
absence for the remainder of the
week.    Leave was granted.
The teachers from one of the
schools wrote, stating that they were
forming a library club, and asked lhe
Board to give them a bookcase for
the books. It was agreed to comply
with Iheir request Mr. Empcy was
present with a representative from
the various insurance companies who
are taking the risks on thc new
schoids. Mr. Empey stated that owing to an error, some of the policies
were not readv and he produced new
schedules feir the addition to the new
school.
A committee was appointed to go
into thc matter of new desks and
select the  most suitable.
Commissioner Crehan wrote disallowing thc Medical Officer's salary
and a bill of $35 for antiseptics. He
pointed out that thc Board had exceeded their powers in employing Or.
Hunter under the conditions in which
they did, as they had no authority te,
employ a doctor for making simple
operations, etc. Thc Board promptly
dismissed the doctor for the space of
five minutes. They then reappointed
him at a reduction of $500 per annum
and did not define his duties. By this
motion, it is asserted, the trustees
have acknowledged themselves in the
wrong, and at the next meeting of the
Commission it is possible the Commissioner may surcharge them the
doctor's salary, ,,r rather the difference of what he is receiving now anil
what he previously got.
To the Editor oj
Sir.���Mr.  Vogcl'l optimism  regard-1
ing the developmenl of tbe North
Ann ni the fraser may be all veryI
well feer fervid believers in incorporation, but ia lit neel being carried away
by his own enthusiasm? Hastily
reading his letter iu last week's issue,
one weeuld think that lhe erecting of
warehouses to accommodate the "tremendous quantities" eef life's necessaries could be- accomplished in a
'nighl���in fact, lee dream of them is to
have them "in situ" em awaking oul of!
such  dream.
Will ten ,,r fifteen years see the es-.
tablishment   of   wharves   and   ware- j
houses along the banks of the  .North
Arm of the Prater?   And how and on
what  are the  people  living  in  South
Vancouver to subsist in the interim1'
A  trite saying, "Te, obtain news of
home it is necessary te, travel abroad,"
is again  proved by  the  following ex-j
tract from an Old Country paper, and '���
which shows another side of Ihe sub-'
jeet primarily dealt with by Mr. Vogel'
���thc shipment of wheat :
Panama and Canadian Grain
Shippers at Vancouver and olher
British Columbian ports are apparently   hopeful   that   the   opening  of-
the   Panama   Canal   will   materially
reduce the rates <>f freight to Liverpool and  Manchester, a calculation
having already been  made  that  on
grain   from  Western   Canada  there<
will be a saving of about 3c a bushel.
The   influence   on   transcontinental
traffic   has   recently   been   the  sub- j
ject  of inquiry  by   thc   Ministry of j
Trade and Commerce, Ottawa, and
Around the Municipal Hall
I Iften our good works are interred
with uur bones, but the evil deeds live
afterwards, Such must have been the
thoughts running through Commissioner Crehan'i mind while commenting upon thc bookkeeping system at
the Municipal Hall. Mr. Walker, late
Municipal Clerk, must have felt a glow
ni pride as he read the eulogy passed
upon his work. The commentary
passed was well deserved and should
prove an incentive to others who do
imt think their work appreciated at
ii5 right value. Some day perhaps
their work will be placed under review  and  comment  made  publicly.

Mr. Walker's efforts wcre not appreciated by the Council of lhat time,
flu excuse given bv ex-R*eve W, A.
Pouiiel was that the rate^ayi r.�� objected to the number and salaries paid
i" the employees at the Municipal
Hall. As head of the Municipality il
was his duty to see that an adequate
stall was kept, also that a.rcasemable
Salary was paid. After-events have
proved that while this cheese-paring
of a few dollars was going on, the
wlv we.uk of the Municipality was
in chaos, and to undo lhat few dollars' saving is now costing the Municipality thousands of dollars,

of a sale of that instrument being
made. No provision is made in the
Municipal Clauses Act for providing
pianos, and as the Commissioner is
empowered to surcharge for this item
the late Councillors will either need
to raffle it among themselves or let it
go at a snap price. Those in need of
such a useful piece of furniture
should     watch     the       advertisement

In the hope of eliciting friendly discussion mi this most important topic,
I will ask further, "Will the estafa
tithing of the "harbour of South Vancouver" help in the supporting of its
population  by providing it  with its
means  of livelihood*
The rapid increase in lhe number
of settlers compels one to wonder
how iheir wants are to be met without the establishing of permanent industries. For lie the we,rkers the introduction of such industries is of
paramount importance. In my
opinion the discussion of ways and
means In build a solid and permanent
Structure which will enhance lhe wcll-
beinv of the citizens as a whole is nf
innrei importance than the question of
harbor provision.

Whether or nol the Board of Trade
-hiHilil make public the result of the
negotiations te, date of the joint committee of the various municipalities
interested in the creation of a harbor
idmmission was discussed ai some
length by lhe members eef lhat body
at their regular meeting on Monday
night last.
Air. Charles Harrison, secretary,
anil Mr. Kenneth Lamond strongly
objected t.> withholding ihe information, Itating that the' ratepayers of
Soutli Vancouver were deeply interested iu these matters, and it was as
well to let them know how far the
proposition t<, get a harbor commission   had   progressed.     However,   Mr.
Armstrong's motion to report progress was carried.
Mr. II. B. A. Vogel brought up the
mailer nf pulling in spurs from the
B. C. Electric track along the waterfront. It appears that some former
Council had put Kent Road on the
seiuth side of the track instead of thc
north, and now, when a person wishes
to put a spur into his property consent must be obtained from the Council. Por some reason or olher the
Council in the meantime have refused
to allow these spurs to be put in unless under certain onerous conditions.
The Board is likely, however, to go
more fully into the matter now that
ils attention has been drawn te, it.
A motion from ihe Postal Commit
tee, asking the lieean! in communicate
wilh ilie- Postmaster-General at Ottawa acquainting him that the houses
in the Collingwood district were now
numbered, and that a free delivery
she.ule] ai once be commenced, was
passed. 11 was pointed enu ihat the
people were put to a hardship by having tn wail leer marly two hours for
their mail, while it was being sorted
in the becal office. The secretary was
instructed In write at mice and draw
the Department's attention to the
mailer.
A circular was read from the Committee   nf   the   Pacific   Highway   As-
Sociation, stating that the rules of the
road might be altered and asking the
Board to support ii.    It was felt that
this was simply a move em  the part
of some    United    States    automobile
manufacturers, who are making their
I automobiles with  the left-hand drive,
' te,  get  a   preference  over  the   British
j make, which is made with the right
hand   drive.     It   was   agreed   not   to
recommend the alteration of the rule.
There   was  a   number  of   enquiries
from various centres in the Old Country as te, prospects in South Vancouver.    The  Board agreed  to advertise
| in   all   the   local   papers,   asking   the
owners   of  watcrfrontagc   and   trackage who were willing to lease  some,
tn  forward particulars  tei the  Board
see   that   the  information     might     be
given t'e intending manufacturers.

Victoria was agreed upon as the
place of the next annual session,
which will be held during September,
1913.
After the close of the session a
special meeting of the International
Supreme Lodge was held, when a
number of members were exalted to
the highest degree in the order.
On Friday evening thc delegates
were entertaind by the local lodge at
a banquet.
Matthew Cameron charged John
Ward with assault by pushing him off
the sidewalk. On the evidence of the
defendant and his brother, James
Ward, who was called as a witness,
the case was dismissed by Magistrate
McArthur.
There is now every indication that
at least one part of Westminster
Road, within the boundary of South
Vancouver, will be paved before next
spring. At a special meeting of the
Council on Monday night last, a deputation from the Westminster Road
improvement Association, headed by
the president, Mr. A. P. Black, waited
upon the Council and urged the necessity of going ahead with at least
a portion of the work immediately.
As a result of the meeting the Court-
I cil read the Westminster Road Improvement bylaw, on the local Improvement plan, a third time and instructed the Engineer to call for tenders for various kinds of paving, tenders to be on a unit basis and for the
pavements mentioned, asphalt, concrete, bitulithic, creosote blocks ami
granitoid. It is expected that the
portion started will be completed bj
March 31 next.
Mr. Black, in urging the claim- of
Westminster   Ruad.   staled   that   the
' whole assessment of the road was $1,-
054,717.50; the sanction of the tax
payers    representing     half   of    thai
,.111101111! was necessary and after a
great deal t)i we.rk lhe' association had
obtained signatures eif property own
��� ers representing $541,287, an excess of
ISU.92X.    Those signatures,   he   laid,
'were now ill  lhe  hands  of  lhe  ���<
I sor, and there was reason tei believe
thai signatures representing another
$20,000 would be secured.
The cost of ilu- proposed improvement, he said, was estimated al aboul
$250,000 and the' association proposed
lhat one side of lhe road be paved before  March   31   next   Sei  as   to  allow
I lime for thc necessary nine months'
notice to bc given to the B. C. Klec-
! trie* Railway Company in  accordance
i wilh  the terms of their franchise.
Ile stated that thc Provincial Government    had    agreed   to   contribute
$7(1,000,  and  he  pointed  out  that  the
Municipality    would    be    responsible
only for the paving of a fifteen-foot
center for a car track, all intersections
for lanes and streets and 15 per cent,
of  flankage property.    He  suggested
that   tenders   he   called   for   at   once,
arid he asked if the plan were ready.
To this  query, Municipal  Engineer
Clement stated that the profiles of the
road had been taken and that the plan
would be completed soon.
During the meeting, Councillor Elliott took occasion to right a wrong
impression which had gone abroad in
connection with his non-appearance at
a special meeting of the Council called
for the previous Friday morning,
which was abandoned owing to the
fact that there was not a quorum present. The Councillor explained that
he was out with a gang of men installing two steam rock crushers from
9 o'clock in the morning until 7 o'clock
at night. He wished it to be understood, however, that he had as much
interest in the improvement of West
minster Road as anv other member of
the Council, though the interests of
his own ward came first.
The newly appointed Municipal Solicitor. Mr. Cojin Clarkc. was welcomed on behalf of the Council by
Councillor Robinson.
Mr. Hugh Parker has commenced
the erection of a four-roomed house
on Earles Road, near Horley Street.
It will be modern in every respect.
The regular monthly meeting of the
South Vancouver Teachers' Association was held in the Knights of Pythias Hall, Mason Block, Mount
Pleasant, on Wednesday of last week.
The Association was exceptionally
well represented, over eighty members being in attendance, and this
gathering was by far the most successful of any held by the Association
to date.
The representative of the picnic
committee having reported mi the
recent outing tee Bowen Island, a communication from the Secretary of the
Board of School Trustees "nf the
Municipality was read, The Secretary
wrote that ilu- Board had decided to
pay tlu- teachers' substitutes when unable to attend their duties through
sickness, feer a period nf not more than
ten days iu any one year, cases nf absence through contagious diseases ie>

Tbe president, Mr. S. V. Clement of
"Lord Selkirk," replying, thanked the
Association for the honor and confidence reposed in the officers, and feir
the information of those concerned, he
stated that in conversation with the
Municipal Inspector bc had been notified that all teachers interested in the
course of physical culture connected
with Strathcona Institute would be
fully informed regarding the same on
application to the School Board offices.
This completing the business, the
rest of the evening was given over to
social  and  musical  entertainment.
The musical programme, marked by
a diversity of talent which came as a
pleasant surprise to many of those
present, was a huge success.
The opening instrumental, a piano
duct, "The Hungarian Dance," by
Moskowski, was charmingly rendered
by thc accompanist of the evening,
Miss Forrest and Miss Heard, thc
technique of each, though varying
somewhat, being admirable, and thc
combination resulting in a very enjoyable selection.
Mr. J. Alfred Hamilton here contributed a bass solo, which was urian
I'inously acknowledged to be the "chef
d'ocuvre" of the evening. His well
known basso con tan te. mellow and
resonant, was heard to best advantage

Commissioner   Crehan   Criticises   the
System of Bookke ping at
Municipal Hall
The enquiry by Commissioner Cre.
han into the affairs of the Council of
South Vancouver was commenced on
Saturday afternoon of last week. The
method of bookkeeping at the Municipal Hall canu- in for some criticism
by tlie' Commissioner, who maintained that if the system inaugurated by
Mr W. G. Walker had been pursued,
the present investigation would not
have been necessary. One or two of
the witnesses suggested that the
Municipal Act was tn blame, as it
was difficult in e'arry it nut in il- en
tirety; but the Commissioner saiel ii
was only those who made mistakes
who found fault with lhe Act. the
fundamental principle of which was
that the taxpayer should get thc most
feer his money.

FIRE CAPTAIN STOPS

Mr. Clarke, thc new solicitor for
the municipality, commenced his
duties on Tuesday morning. Although
the Council had prepared quarters for
him. he is still without an office. When
shown his new quarters he would not
accept them as they were unsuitable.
We understand that after this week
he will get the magistrate's room. Mr.
McArthur will get a new office partitioned off on thc South end of the
hall. As being thc man of least resistance. Mr. McArthur is moved
about like a figure on a checker
board. This is the sixth occasion on
which he has had to move since coming to the new hall.

While on duty at No. 1 Fire Hall

was the means of bringing to a stop

off Joyce Street onto Westminster

li i> expected that when Reeve
Wearl and Councillor McDonald go
tee Rcvelstoke te, attend the Union nf
li. C. Municipalities, which meets in
that city on October 22 and 23, thc>
will have tucked away in their inside pocketl several very important
matters in lay before that body. Two
of these were placed in their hands
by lhe Council. The first is in regard
to "Miles & Hounds" subdivisiem of
property. This system is used by
eiwners of property who are not will
ing to subilivide their property accord,
ing to the Maps and Plant bylaw, but
who divide it to suit themselves, plac
ing streets te, suit themselves. They
then sell the bits te, theise wh,, do not
kneiw anything about the manner of
subdividing and as a consequence they
find themselves living on a street that
the Council tle-cs neit own nor recognize and consequently the Council
will nol improve nor lay water pipes
em. The oilier matter brought before
the Council by the Engineer which
will be forwarded to Revelstoke concerns lhe telephone rates charged in
Burnaby.
Ereem stalislics furnished il has been
ihown that the rates arc very much
higher than in olher places anil considering the number of telephones already installed and the number who
are wanting them who cannot get
tiffin it is the feeling that the rate
sheiulel  be  substantially reduced.
At a meeting of the Finance Ceimmittee it was decided to sell $325,-
000 treasury notes. This will be handled bv the Dominion Bond Comoany

The Passing of John Rumble
Flags flying at half-mast at the
Municipal Hall and at many private
residences on Friday meirning lasl

last call.

Mr. Rumble was born in Lancashire. England, but as a young man
answered the call of the Far West and
for some time resided iu Victoria.

where he worked up an extensive
business as a stone cutter. Shortly
after coining lo Vancouver he purchased a splendid homesite on Nelson

among the wilds of the forest erected
his home and continued In reside
there until his death.

Late John Rumble

his efforts em behalf of the people
whom   he   represented.
During later years he was Chairman of thc Board of Works, and as
such was untiring in his efforts to
see that every part of the Municipality got a fair share of the money expended and that the work was done
in the best and most economical manner. He was one of the moving spirits in the Burnaby Lake Improvement
scheme and spent a great deal of time
in forwarding this movement.
In religion Mr. Rumble was a
Methodist. As a member of Jubilee
Methodist Church he took an active
part in all its branches, and was for
some years Superintendent of the Sabbath School, only relinquishing its
duties when his health failed.
He was on the Board of Directors

"Buy acreage near a growing City," was James J.
Hill's advice when asked what he considered the best
and safest form of investment.
Xorth Burnaby acreage is undoubtedly thc best investment close to the growing City of Vancouver.
We own some of the very choicest Acreage in
Xorth Burnabyi anil 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

Hollow   out   a   loaf   of  angel-cake,

cleaner the mouth, other things being equal, ihe less subject   will   the
teeth lie lu decay.
Few people keep their mouths as
clean  as  I hey  should, not  because  in [
many instances they do not  cleans.!
them often enough, bul because ii is
improperly  dune.    Many  people  are
still   brushing  their   teeth   crossways
(frum  siele tu  side), and  lliink  if thei
��� enter surface's have been thus brushed
they base done their whole duty, for
getting 'hai  there are' other surfaces
..f   lhe   teeth,   "r   thai   the   gums   anil

tion.
li i- this cross brushing eef the teeth
thai is responsible i"r more receded
gums than any ulher eause. The'
teeth arc nol only nol cleansed, bm
are actually injured by injudicious
brushing.
The first requisite in ihe cleansing

Unfortunately there are few such
brushes upon iln- market, mosl ol
those exposed for   sale'   being    t,>���.
large, ill .shaped, ami uf poor quality.
A ge���,d dentifrice (either a powder
ur paste)  is also necessary.
The teeth ihould be brushcil and a
dentifrice used at least  twice daily���'
night  and  morning)     1 In   Iheir   exn r
mil   surfaces   they   should  be  brushed
up and down (never across), allowing
the  brush   to  pass  as  far  em   tee  the
gums as the lips and cheeks will permit.    This allows the bristles to pass
between  thc  teeth  (as  far as  that  is ;
possible),   the   outer   surfaces   of   the
teeth  are  brushed  throughout    their,
entire length, and the gums are exercised and hardened  without  injury.
The mouth slueuld next lie opened,
and the grinding surfaces of the teeth
vigorously scrubbed, especial care be. j
ing given to those in the back part of:
thc mouth. Then, by tilting the brush,
thoroughly brush the surfaces, next
the tongue, again carrying the brush
well up and down on the gums. Next
extend the tongue from the mouth
and brush it.
After meals remove from the teeth
with   waxed   silk   or   quill     toothpick
food that may have lodged there, and
where possible wash the mouth with
warm  water,  or  use  the brush,  with
or   without   a   dentifrice,   to   remove
particles of food which may have col- j
lected.     The   passing  of  waxed   silk,

WHY    THE    XORTH    ARM    WILL    BE    A
COMMERCIAL CENTRE
VT/IJEN the great ships from all parts of the world pass
��� up thc North Arm of the Fraser River they will
discharge freight. They will come to fill up with wheat,
but they will not come duply. Their lirst duty will bc to
rid themselves of their vast stores of imported goods
gathered from all points of the globe. They will seek a
point at which to discharge their burden.
Cheap teaming has a dominating influence in the creation
of great harbors, for cheap handling of freight means
cheap teaming, and cheap teaming requires level land.
The Xorth Arm of the Fraser offers these facilities. A
commercial harbor will therefore be located along the
Xorth Arm.
Massive warehouses will spring up to take care of this
freight, which will come from all places on the globe.
These warehouses will form one of thc greatest distributing centres on the continent. Not only will they take
care of the incoming freight, but they will also ship out
the grain, and that grain will be shipped out on the North
Arm of the Fraser, where thc large interests will have to
move directly under their own eyes. Some grain may be
shipped at Port Mann or at other points, but the major
portion of it will find its way into the holds of the ships
along the North Arm of thc Fraser. The question of
cheap handling of freight will settle this point.
He need not have a vivid imagination who would contemplate thc boundless future of the North Arm of the
Fraser. Everything is in its favor for it to become one
of the world's greatest ports. Not one opportunity can be
lost, however, of presenting its claims to thc proper
authorities to have it put in navigable shape for the large
ocean-going vessels. When thc Panama Canal is opened
the Xorth Arm of the Fraser must be ready for the reception of these vessels, for the North Arm will be the
point to which hundreds of vessels will fix their compasses
in their mad race to carry thc merchandise of lhe world.
Frum the Tyne c.iuies tbe interesting news that nut
a few of ilu- steamers bow building een tlu- Northeast
Coast are designed feer the navigation of the Panama
Canal. The orders fur these vessels, says the correspondent
who sends the infotaMtion, have been placed very quietly,
ami in many cases il is not yei known for whai particular
branch eef the Pacific trade they are intended. The [act
that the vessels are designed to carry as much tonnage aa
possible on a restricted draft eef water is helel 1 ��� ��� leave- no
eleiubi as to the intention of the owners. This presumably
elucs noi mean that they must not draw much water if
they wish lee gii through thc canal. The new waterway
will have an advantage 'ever lhe Sue/ Canal in this respect,
fe,r it has been specially designed to secure the passage
"1 modern ships of deep draft. The inference is that the
trades in which these' vessels will bc engaged will not bc
associated with deep water harliors, and that fact has
been taken into account.
If thc report is correct, wc shall this year see a good
many more vessels ordered, in view of the completion of
the Panama enterprise. It may bc assumed, too, that
continental countries are also maturing their plans for
the opening up of new services with new ships. In the
United Slates it is being sought to achieve thc same cud
by a bill now before Ceeiigress, which would have curie,us
consequences. It would allow Americans to buy foreign-
built ships and register them in their own country, provided
such ships arc never used for coastwise trade���which in
the largest sense means trade between New York and
San Francisco���and are strictly confined to foreign-going
trade. It is, of course, in its foreign-going shipping that
the United States is essentially weak. If the bill passes
wc shall see for the first time on record a mercantile marine
split into two separate and permanent divisions. An
incidental feature of the measure is that all shipbuilding
material shall be admitted free of duty into the United
States.
THE ASSESSMENT FALLACY
/""\XE of the fallacies used as an argument by the anncxa-
^*/ tionists is lhat portions of property in South Vancouver adjoining the limits of thc City of Vancouver are
assessed higher than the property across the border, so
to speak. It is possibly at these points where the contrast
is most marked, and thc question of assessment comes in
for serious consideration.
On thc face of it, it w.ould seem as if the annexationists
had, in the language of the fan, scored a home-run. But let
us stop to consider. Possibly Cedar Cottage and Main
Street, from 16th Avenue out past 25th Avenue, are the
two most notable examples of this apparently marked discrimination in assessment.
The City of Vancouver at these points touches thc out-
skirls of ils boundaries and the rale of assessment is al
ebb-tide. Business there is none, or very lil tic.
Values of residential properly at these places cannot con-
sequently be as high as closer in to the centre of the busi.
ness bub.
On the South Vancouver side wc have an active business centre at Cedar Collage, with almost an unbroken
li"' 'ei places of business on Main Street, from 16th
Avenue past 25th Avenue. Surely this business property
in S. jut li Vancouver should be of more market value than
residential property in the outskirts of the City of Vancouver, That is the reason why the assessment of prop
my iii Seeiilli Vancouver adjoining lhe City of Vancouver
i- assessed higher, and ii would be no credit t>e ihe present
standing "l South Vancouver nor an assurance of the
future if it were otherwise,
The point which lhe annexationist! try tei make is based
upem false premises. They should compare lhe assess
ment on business pr.iperly in South Vancouver wilh lhe
assessment on business properly in the City of Vancouver,
and the assessment of property on the outskirts of the
City of Vancouver with the assessment of property on
thc outskirts of South Vancouver. Such a comparison
would show that South Vancouver's assessment is low,
yes, strikingly low compared with the assessment of the
Cily of Vancouver.
THE JINGOES AGAIN
17 VERY once in a while there is an outbreak of the
*���' jingoes. When the large plants which turn out thc
warships and battleships see dull times ahead, thc old
bogey of war with Germany is brought out of the closet
and paraded before the gaze of the public. Frequent
handling has worn some of the distinctive features off
the form, but in the main it remains the same.
Thc other day in Winnipeg, W. J. A. Snushall, of Birmingham, let off a little of this steam from a pent-up
system. In facl, it gushed forth in such quantities as to
envelop the entire city, and the oldest inhabitant pinched
himself to make sure that be did not find himself in
Medicine Mat. According to this authority on the rise and
fall of nations, Great Britain should immediately step
over to Germany, slap the Kaiser a naughty little twig
on his mustachio and tell him to be good. Having accomplished such, everything for all time to cumc would
bc as sweet as the fairest maid in June.
Mr. Snushall is piping down thc wrong funnel. As long
as thc commercial interests of Great Britain and Germany are as closely entwined as at the present lime, there
will be no war between these two nations, even though
the masses who occupy these countries are so bereft of
reason as to spill endless quantities of blood merely because men of the stamp of Mr. .Snushall are eager to see
a little recreation.
Had Mr. Snushall's remarks been directed towards increasing the efficiency of the wheat vessels, or shown
a solution tu the grain blockade, he might have made a
hit. As it is, his utterances were too funny to bc taken
seriously.
EFFECTS    OF    THE    OPENING    OF    THE
PANAMA CANAL
"THE benefits to bc derived by British Columbia inciden-
" tal to the opening of the Panama Canal arc
recognized as certain by every well-informed man. British
papers and journals concede that this province will gain
immensely with the completion of the work. Only recently
the "Daily Telegraph," of London, F.ng., in discussing the
question, gave it as its opinion that while tbe opening of
the canal will give great impetus to trade with the west
coast of South America, it is expected to do equally great
things for the Western States and British .Columbia. At
present, this paper goes on to state, it is said that the cost
of the land journey right across the continent is relatively
prohibitive. Given cheap through steamship communication
by way of Panama from Europe to the Pacific ports, and
we shall, it is averred, sec big emigration traffic spring up
which will bring greatly increased prosperity to the
Pacific slope. Then, again, it is pretty evident that not a
little of the freight traffic which now goes eastward to
tbe sea will find its natural port of shipment on the
Pacific. Altogether the Panama waterway foreshadows
so many possible changes that steamship managers may
well be excused if they are anxious as to the new plans
it will necessitate.
TAKING HIS CHANCE
/~\NCE upon a time a Father built unto himself a home
^S In many resects it was a thing of beauty, and pulsated with life and vigor. Here and there the expansive
walks, with their myriad of bypaths, bespoke, industry and
application. But one day the Father awoke to the fact
that his own energies and resources must be supplemented
if the home of which he bad dreamed was to be fully
realized, and be began to cast about him for the needed
assistance.
Adjoining his property was thc home of one of his lusty
Si ens. This Son displayed many of lhe talents upon which
his Father bad built up his success. He, too, was building
unto himself a home. True, his home was of more humble
pretensions, but he had made bis start just as his Father
had made a start at one time. The Son, too, had beautiful grounds, though they were more or less in the rough.
Hut like his Father he possessed determination ami enthusiasm, and recognized Opportunity. Unlike his Father
he had many more millions to spend.
One day lhe Father and Son met on lhe dividing line to
compare notes. The Father saw in the vista his Son's
he erne which, too, would be a thing of beauty, pulsating with
life and vigor, vicing with his own tall structure. Also
eliel li.' see a bulky reell eel uinise'd credit slips. The Father,
Wo, recognized Opportunity. Keen to gain his point the
Father broached ihe1 subject closest tu bis heart.
"Why nol wipe out this boundary line between our
properties and throw your holdings into mine?" asked the
Father, "My home is not complete, and I need thc money.
Your home is merely in lhe early stages : you don't know
much abeiut building, and you should feel honored to allow me to spend thc money which you have accumulated
by thrift and industry. Let your own building stand.
Never mind if it does crumble and weeds overrun the
walks. Some day I may beautify your walks, but you
will have to take your chances.
What was the Sou's answer?
There arc few institutions more worthy of public support than thc Annual New Westminster Exhibition, which
is being held this week. As an exhibit of the agricultural
possibilities of British Columbia it takes front rank. During its many vicissitudes its officers have stayed with it
with admirable determination, and now it is a credit, not
only to the city, but to the province.

Sir   Richard  Cartwright
("Toronto Gle.be")
The passing of Sir Richard Cart-
wrighl from lhe arena in which be
.mure el   SO   long   and   Me   preeminently
was too gradual to shock ilu- wan
muniiv as a tragedy. From the stand,
pe.iiu e.f ih,. superficial observer oi
current political movements his half
century uf continuous and strenuous
Parliamentary weirk may appear te)
have been a failure; lo those who look
more deeply into the operation of the
forces Ileal mould lhe destinies uf
nations,   his   career   will   be   seen   to
have been a splendid success. Endowed
wilh exceptional physical powers and
a peerless Intellectual equipment, he
never spared cither of them in tbe
service'   e,f   his   country,  and   yet   he
survived the generation uf Canadian
statesmen lee which he properly belonged, leaving behind him only Sir
Charles Tupper, a former foeman
worthy of his steel.
Sir Richard was a born political
lighter who surpassed all others of
his time in the ability to forge thc
weapons with which he fought and
to prepare the ammunition which be
discharged. He was an original Investigator of sociological, economic,
ind financial phenomena, an industrious collector of facts and a master
f sweeping induction in bis rhetorical use of them. His public life was
me long labor of research, broken
,nly by practical applications of his
discoveries tu the social and institutional betterment of thc Conditions
under which his fellow-citizens had to
spend their lives. His financial budget speeches wcre models of careful compilation and luminous exposition, couched always in the classical
form into which be cast his thoughts
wilh a skill and effectiveness rarely
equalled  and  never  surpassed.
As a Parliamentary debater and a
platform speaker, Sir Richard was in
a class by himself. He was one of the
few Parliamentarians whose style is
the same on the floor of the House
as it is on thc campaign hustings. He
treated his popular audiences just as
he did his fellow-members of the
House of Commons. He earnestly
sought to convince in each case, and
in each be paid his audience the high
compliment of assuming that his
hearers were as earnest in seeking the
truth as he was single-hearted in proclaiming it. He never stooped in his
oratory to any lower ideal, and
though he was a master of invective,
he never yielded to thc temptation
to be vulgar. He had a singularly wide
and thorough acquaintance with English literature, and few public speakers
could bear comparison with him in
command of apt quotations for illustrative purposes. His sentences were
both short and crisp, were rarely involved, and wcre always faultless in
diction. There has never been in
Canadian public life a more effective
public speaker, apart altogether from
bis complete mastery of any subject
that happened to be the theme of
his  discourse.
As a party politician Sir Richard
Cartwright's career was quite unparalleled in this country, and the one
most similar to it in great Britain was
that of Mr. Gladstone. He was of
United Empire Loyalist decent of the
third generation, and when he entered
Parliament at twenty-seven he was
to all appearance fully imbued with
the political opinions of the class
into which he was born. But he was
too independent in his disposition to
live by inherited dogmas. He soon displayed a rare aptitude for financial
criticism, and session by session bis
attitude became more and more that
eif a candid friend of the Conservative Ministry of the day. Young as
he was he secured easily and held
tenaciously the ear of the House, and
he became quite as much feared by
his associates as he was respected
by his opponents.
From 1863 to 1867 he was limited in
his political horizon by the confines
of the Canada made up of the present
Ontario and Quebec; from 1867 to
1872 he had lo solve for himself a
novel set of political and financial
problems. The drift from his early
associates became more pronounced
as years passed, and in 1873 the
"Pacific Scandal" became the occasion for an open abandonment of
Conservatism and a frankly-avowed
acceptance of a place in thc Liberal
ranks. From that lime to the end of
his life bc never wavered in the course
he had chosen to adopt) and there is
no reason to believe lhat he ever felt
a pang of regret at the change.
The listing time of his career was
the lung term of Opposition from
1878 to 1896. More than any other
one man, except Sir Wilfrid Lauricr,
he bore the brunt of lhe titanic and
depressing struggle which began in
his forty-third and ended in his sixty-
first year. When Ilis party resumed
office he passed from thc Commons
to the Senate, and from the Department of Finance to that of Trade and
Commerce. His strenuous work bad
been done, but his heart continued to
beat young, and ever and anon rang
forth a message to the public of the
sort with which he had become
intimately associated in the minds of
two generations. To the end he remained the earnest searcher aftcn
truth, and his trumpet never made any
uncertain  sound  in  its  proclamation
Clergymen Should be Careful
("Montreal Witness")
It is vain as well as mischievous for
clergymen to denounce a Scientific
opinion, however radical, as destructive of faith. Time after time conceptions that have been held in tbe
name of faith have been shattered,
and those who regarded them as essential have lost what sort of faith
they bad.
Need Some of English Spirit
("Winnipeg Tribune")
What wc need most in Canada is
more self-reliance of the good old
British type. The Englishman, criticize him as we may, is an example to
Canada, and until we follow his example self-reliance and higher development will make comparatively slow
progress.

fairly shook with the vibrations, Sleep

the guilty one was located.    I did nol
have  the  slightest  trouble  in   finding
who was responsible feer our discom
fort,   for   every  one   in   the   Pullman
had  his bead out. glaring at  a berth
toward the other end of the car, the
cUrtains  of  which  were  drawn   fast
together.    A   small  German    in    the
upper berth across freim mine seemed
even more angry than thc others. His
looks were now  pleading    and    now
threatening.     Finally  the  snoring be
came irregular.   A guttural sound was
followed    by    a    whistle,    and    Ihen
sounds   resembling   faulty     plumbing
did  not   add   to   the  small   German's
comfort.   At last came several titanic
rumbles, short wheezes, a gasp, a long
groan,   and   then   all   was     still.       I
breathed a sigh of relief and was just
pulling   the   curtains   baek   in   place.

The Permanent Paving Material-
CONCRETE
A pavement which will provide for all conditions
of traffic and climate must be constructed on a common-sense basis.
Concrete is recognized as the only material suitable
for permanent work, and is used as the foundation for
all modern pavements.
The discovery of a satisfactory concrete wearing
surface has been made in Granitoid after years of experimenting and study. In our Patented 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.
Watch Westminster Road from Main Street to
Prince Edward, also Davie Street, Second Avenue,
and Columbia Street, in Vancouver.

COME WHILE THE BARGAINS LAST
At Baltimore the- car filled rapidly.
Inquiry of the tn-.ui who accepted tlie
other ball of my seal dei i loped the
< fact that a rae ing meet had just come
to an end, and that the majority e,f
travellers were running over tee New
Yeerk   for a day or two  before  geeing
j South.
A^ the train pulled e.ut of thc sta-
j tie,n, a man ��iii,in i characterized as
a phlegmatic German came down the
aisle, slopping a moment t'e shake-
I bands silently wilh my seat mate. I
stuilu-el him with idle curieisity until
he had passed into the next car, and
then turned to uiy companion.
"Vent kneiw Ivim?" 1 asked careless-
ly.
"Rather!" he sniileei. "That's Peter
j SchlosS, the bookmaker, who runs
' the 'big sl'ire' in  the betting ring."
Now, I knew just enough about the
I liorsc-raeing game to understand that
big store meant the betting stand or
| booth that handled wagers rather
larger than the average bookmaker
cared to accept. My idea of a book
was one that was run on a percentage
basis, with thc various odds so adjusted that a proportionate amount
bet on each horse in a race left the
bookmaker ahead, no matter which
ween. As lhe stranger who shared
my seat seemed both good-natured
and intelligent, I explained my conception of the business, and asked
how a man of the caliber of Schloss
could make money.
"Your theory of bookmaking is
correct," he admitted, "except that
ordinarily it is impossible to get
enough bets on other than three or
four horses iu each race to make it
work out in actual practice. The big
bookmaker nowadays is merely a big
bettor. Schloss there ia as good an
example as 1 kne.w. I race ., small
stable oi horses, but tbii is ihe lirst
track a' whieh 1 have- seen him work.
li you're interested, I'll be- glad te,
tell yeeu something about his methods,
whieh  are  naturally  pretty fresh in
my tuiiiel."
I suggested adjourning to the smok.
ing compartment. Once there-, with
our cigars burning evenly, my new
friend began his story in this way :
I bad beard so many yarns about
Peter Schloss that when I found he
was be.eekiug at this meet I toe.k the
lirst opportunity of plaining myself
in fri'iit of him, just after he hail put
up his prices on one of the races. As
I stood there, watching lhe small fry
piking their twos and lives, somebody
pushed me aside.
"Gimme fifty straight on Scarlet
Sky." demanded a bette.r, holding out
a fistful of live-dollar bills.
Peter reached feerth nonchalantly
for the money, counted it with flicks
of his pudgy thumb, and droned to his
sheet writer : "Five hundred to fifty
on Scarlet Sky to win."
The bettor hesitated, apparently
waiting for Peter to rub the price. It
was a substantial wager at a big
price, and any other bookmaker in the
ring would have shortened the odds
after accepting it. The man reached
into the depths of his pockets and
' brought  forth  more  greenbacks,
"Twenty more on the Sky boss?'
ho s.ii,l tentatively, making it a question rather than a command this
time.
Peter   nodded   silently.     Tlie   bills
went into the cash box. and the memorandum was made on the sheet. Then

Peter simply had an absolute con

amount of betting een the horse ceiuld
make him waver. If there had been
support enough for the mare, indeed,
I lie would have stood there taking in
| money  on  her  till the    barrier    was
sprung.   He was willing to bet any-
'��� body and everybody that his decision
j was more accurate lhan theirs; that's
why I say that the big bookmaker of
today is only a big bettor.
1 can see that you arc going to object that sooner or later somebody is
' going to frame up a job that will rock
Peter to his foundations. Possibly
a bettor will catch him off guard, but
I I doubt it any one will ever equal the
trick lhat was sprung in thc last race
today. It was mighty near a masterpiece.
There is a certain owner who rejoices in the name of Buddy; they
call him "Bud" for short. He has a
stable of fair nags, which run about
as erratically as the stewards will allow without ruling him off the turf.
One of them, Luck, has developed
into a real racer, and has shown his
form so convincingly that when Hud
put him in with a Held of selling
platers four days ago, the best the
books would lay against him was
one-two.
When the odds lirst went up, as a
matter of fact, most of the books
wouldn't chalk any price at all. Peter
thought it over, and, having a pretty
fair itlca of Bud's character, decided
he wouldn"t try to win that day, but
weeuld stall for a price the next time
out. That's why he offered one-two
on what looked like a moral certainty.
It was a big field, and there was a
lot of roughing it at the barrier. I
was standing near Peter's book, waiting for the bell, when one of his outside men rushed in with the information that Luck had unseated his
jockey and run away to the stable,
clearing thc low rail at the other side
of the track as neatly as if he had
been schooled over it.
Peter calmly rubbed his price, and
wrote in its place "Ran away." Most
of his less conscientious brethren
boosted the odds to ten-one or so,
knowing the horse didn't have a
chance after having all the run taken
out of him, and hoping to catch a
few dollars from the unsophisticated.
While some stableboy was walking
the horse back from the stable, Buddy
himself  strolled into the    ring,    and
presently  drifted around  tie  the  big
store. lie siptinteil sharply at the
slate.
"No price, eh?" he laughed nastily.
-Why?"
"No chance to win now,' saitl Peter,
I explaining as gently as tei a child.
"No price, eh?" he laughed nastily.
"Well, I don't know.    What'll yeeu lay
me?"
"Make your  Own  bet   at   your  own
price," snapped   Peter, and eurleil  hll
j lip ;--.  Buddy turned away,    lie had
called the bluff.
I.ink   finished   lasl.  beaten   off, jusl
a- everybody expected In- would,    I
] had a  horse entered in  the last  race
i that day, and went over to my stable
J to see if everything was ready. Buddy's was next tei mine, and 1 was
: surprised to see I.tiek already in his
i stall, looking as trim and clean as if
j he hadn't been out at all.    But   I  was
a whole l"i rttore surprised live minutes later, te, see him again, still Recked with mud, anil cooling off after the
heat. I say again, but I don't mean
il. I knew that once I had seen
Luck and tin- either time a horse that
looked exactly like him, but wasn't
really  Luck.
I suppose I should have told senile
eeffici.il. Rut it didn't strike me as
being any of my business, and even
if Bud was trying to linn a trick with
a "ringer," I assumed the plan was
being hatched for some other track.
Only three days of racing remained
this meet, and pretty much everybody
had a line on Luck. It is customary,
you know, lo race a bad horse till it is
obvious he cannot win, and then tei
switch in the ringer which looks like
him and can win, getting the price
against him that is based upon the
past performances of his twin.
Well, by today I had forgotten all
about it. Luck was entered in the
last race. Most of the bookies, remembering the temper of the horse
at his last start, chalked up even
money or better. But Peter, whom
you will begin to understand is uncannily shrewd, figured this was the
day for Bud to cut loose, and kept
well below the market all through the
betting. At post time he hadn't taken
a  dollar on  the horse.
History repeated itself. Luck gave
a sudden lunge at the barrier, the
jock spilled off into the soft mud, and
the racer put up his tail and tore
around the track at top speed. I
watched curiously as he came opposite his stable on the back stretch
of the track, expecting him to hurdle
the light rail. But he didn't. He
stopped dead, as if confused, and
began to whinny. Immediately a
stableboy ran out, grabbed the bridle,

Peter pointed an accusing finger at
the owner. The crowd about the book,
sensing something thc dramatic sit-
ualieen, hushed suddenly. Schloss spoke
with  unnecessary  emphasis :
"The horse can't win, Mr. Buddy. It
is a -tire thing he can't But if you are
fool enough to bet after I have told
you that, you can have whal you want
at your own price. What is it?"
Bud literally plunged toward the
bookmaker, As be sprang forward, he
rippeel the great re,11 of yellow backed
bills front his pocket*.
"I'll lake five hundred dollars' worth i
al  t if ly  lo 'eiie, all  to win.  Now, let's j
see who's bluffing!"
Peter   leeeek   1 he   money,   counted   it;
wilh  flicks of his  pudgy  thumb, and
droned t" his sheet writer : "Twenty-
five  thousand tee five    hundred    on
Luck,"
After that, of course, the crowd that
knew Buddy and his dirty tactics
surged in toward the book. But Peter
broke all precedent by refusing to accept another dollar on the he,rse at
any price, contenting himself with saying, over and over again: "You're
trying to buck against a sure thing,
boys; I won't take your money."
A jostling, elbowing, money-mad
mob does not offer the ideal conditions for quick thinking. It was a
minute or more before I understood
it all. Then I literally tore and
fought my way to Peler, who knew mc
by sight, and got his ear.
"Get off that bet!" I whispered
shrilly. "It's a framed-up job. Buddy
got a ringer that looks like Luck.
He's the horse that went to the post
and ran away. They'll lead himself

"So?" Peter's heavy face seemed
peculiarly  stolid and  Stupid.
"Of course it's see!" I fairly cried.
"Buddy's tricking you out of a small
fortune,    lie "
Outside, I heard the sharp swish
of thc webbing as Ihe barrier released the eager field. From the crowd
there rolled in to us the mad bellow
"They're off!" At one end of the
belting shed an electric bell clanged
its verification of the start.
'1 here was the usual wild rush from
the ring to a vantage point outside,
where the race itself might be watched. T was caught in its tide and
swept away from the bookmaker. At
the very exit I fought myself free of
the human swirl and looked back at
Peter Schloss. He was smiling
dreamily!
By thc time I had my glasses on
the horses, they were swinging
around the first turn. Luck was
sixth  or seventh, apparently  running
Alf  T. Layne, with the Lawrence Stock Company at the Avenue Theatre
and began leading the horse toward
ti little gale thai led lee the stalls.
lly my side, somebody let loose i
throaty curse, li was Buddy, with his
brow all wrinkled Into moving furrows and his eyes as small and nasty
as they could be. Then, all at once,
his faee smoothed into the masklike
appearance  I  knew so well.
i looked across the Infield. Despite
the shouts and commands of the starters and others, the fool boy from
thc stable had led the horse out of
sight. Within thirty seconds, however, he came back with him, rubbing the brute's nose and menacing
him with a whip, which wasn't at all
necessary, for the horse was remarkably tractable for one that had just
figured in a runaway. I turned to
go into thc betting ring, and found
that I was following hard on the
heels of Buddy, who headed straight
for the big store.
Peter himself wasn't there, nut he
came in presently. 1 saw him before
Luck's owner did, and I saw him
smile for the first time since I had
known him. Buddy was the target
of that smile, and if he had seen it
I am sure he would have shivered as
uneasily as I did. There was no
mirth in it whatever; just malice and
hate.    .
Peter rubbed the price before Luck's
name. I waited for him to write
"Ran away," but for perhaps ten
seconds he held thc bit of chalk motionless in his fingers. Then he drew,
on the blank space of the slate, a
large interrogation point.
Somebody held up a five-dollar bill
to Peter.
"What'll you lay against Luck
now?"  he  asked.
Peter shook his head. "Nothing
doine." he said Quietly.
Buddy snorted audibly. "If you're
too honest to bet with somebody you
think isn't wise to the horse's running
away," he sneered, "how about me?"

but I could see- the kid on Luck urging the horse just the least lil tie bit;

mind you, but he seemed anxious tee

seen the horse run before, anil 1 confidently expected him to quicken Ilis

lie didn't. If anything, indeed, he
lost ground. Halfwit" down the baek
stretch the jockey sat down to ride
in earnest, warned by a horse that
came up on the rail to Luck's saddle
skirts, and another on the emtside
that gained his very throatlatch. But
it was no use. Already he was driving heavily, those ahead and by his
side were galloping easily. Something
was wrong. 1 knew it before I heard
the throaty curse of Buddy, a few-
steps away, and saw for thc second
time the brow that wrinkled into moving furrows and the eyes that had
gone small and nasty.
When they swung out of tbe back
stretch, it was clear to the veriest
novice lhat Luck was done. The kid
on him was driving desperately, urg-(
ing with voice and knee as well as
with whip and spur. But the bouse
did not respond; he was slowly falling back, utterly and overwhelmingly
beaten.
I watched the balance of the race
with dull interest. When Luck chucked it, a good three furlongs from the
wire, thc contest went tame and dull
for me. At the end, when the horse
trailed in, next to last, staggering
drunkcnly, anil as nearly all in as I
ever saw a thoroughbred. I found myself unconsciously sympathizing with
tbe fools who wcre decrying the
jockey for unnecessarily driving a
poor beast that had run away before
thc start. The public didn't know, of
course, that it was a ringer, and not
Luck himself, that had galloped riderless about the track. As for myself
���well, I began to doubt if I knew as
much about it as  I had suppose,'..
While they were paying oft. I
hunted up Peter Schhiss. His eye*
twinkled when he saw me���which,
after all, is the way a man expresses
the must sincere amusement���am! he
drew me aside to explain.
It seems that one of Peter's dockers hael witnessed the schooling of
the ringer just before daybreak two
days previously. It was very simple.
At the barrier a quick jab of the lour
maele the heerse leap suddenly. The
"educated" jeeckey  slipped off  to  the
ground.   The ringe-r raced around the
track lo the baek stretch, where one
of the stableboys called to him, holding eeut a pan of steaming mash feed,
anil the- heerse leaped nimbly over the
low rail to get it. On the day of the
race, of course, a quick substitution
was to be made behind the sheltering
walls of ihe  stables, and the  fresh
Lurk led  to  thc barrier.
As I have said, Peter didn't take a
dollar on Luck before lhe field lined
up at the barrier. Then he went out
to watch for thc trick he expected.
Peter, of course, is a mighty good
judge of horses, else he wouldn't be
much of a success as a bookmaker or
a betI,>r. Well, he saw something
that surprised him mightily���and let
mc tell you he is too phlegmatic tee be;
easily stirred.
A crook like Buddy generally loses
in lhe long run because of treachery
within his own stable. I suppose the
explanation is that he is just naturally
too dishonest to treat even his associates on the level. We haven't
learned the details vet, but we can
guess pretty accurately. Some vengeful stable hand had deliberately
switched horses on him. Luck it was
who went to the barrier first, and
Luck it was who ran away. 1 he
ringer, who, in this case, was valuable because bc looked like Luck, and
not because he had any real running
ability, was lhe horse who finally
started in the race.
Peter Schloss knew it was Luck,
moreover, and not lhe ringer, that
ran away. Ile was shrewd enough to
notice, also, that Buddy was too oock-
sure of his plan, and perhaps too immersed in liquor, by way of a premature celebration, to detect the
switching of thc horses. And that's
why he told Bud he was willing to
accept a bet from him only after hit
had explained that the owner was
bucking a sure thing.
The ethics of the affair? Well. 1
shouldn't care to argue much as
Peter's champion; but just ask yourself this Question : Didn't Buddy get
exactly what he deserved?���The

Amateur Archery
The cross-bow was once thc most
popular weapon in England. History
slates that cross-bows were in vogue
at the battle of Hastings, and it is
said that the death of Harold was
caused by a wound from a cross-bow-
arrow. Our own red men used bows
and arrows as a means of defense, and
to secure game until the introduction
of gunpowder by whites made them
desert the more primitive weapon.
As a military art archery has declined from a high estate, until it has
reached the level of a more pleasant
accomplishment. As such, it is not
lo be despised, for success in it calls
for strong, well-trained muscles and
clear and accurate eyes.
A hoys' or girls' archery club need
not have the equipments of professional bowmen. A couple of homemade bows, a dozen arrows, and a
target are all the essential trappings.
The bows can be cut, in desired
length, of the wood of the yew-tree,
the acacia, or, lacking these, the common barberry-bush offers excellent
canes. It can be peeled and bent, a
small notch cut em opposite sides hai-'
an inch from the ends, and a strong
cord fastened at these notches, hold-
ing  the bow at any preferred curve-.

articles, horn-tipped and varnished

It is surprising how far a common
barberry bow will carry an arrow, and.
often, thc beginner will be thc win

Rose-tinted Mountains
The rosy light that tinges so beautifully thc summits of lofty, snow-
clad mountains before sunrise and
after sunset is due to the fact that the
yellow and red rays of light possess
more penetrative power than thc blue.
Tbe first-mentioned rays make their
way through stretches of the atmosphere which entirely arrest and turn
back the blue, and they do this the
more especially if thc air bc laden at
the time with extraneous particles
that augment their opacity.
When the sun is below thc horizon
the red and yellow rays struggle on
through the air as far as thc snowy
heights, dropping their associates by
the way, and thus paint their fleecy
surfaces with red and yellow tinted
light. This roseate afterglow is very
beautifully seen on the Jungfrau. The
broad-based cone is suddenly cover-
ed in the deepening twilight with the
crimson hue of the rose, and this
gradually fades until the whole has
vanished into darkness. SATURDAY, OCTOBER S, 1912

It is a play and a sermon combined.

BITULITHIC    PAVEMENT    IN
CALGARY.
Bitulithic pavement has played an
important part in thc upbuilding of
Western Canadian cities, and the
streets in Calgary on which it has
been laid are illustrations of the high
standard of quality which it has uni-
formly maintained. Il might not be
geiing toei far to say that this excellent roadway has contributed as much
toward making Calgary a modern
municipality as any individual factor.,
The first contract feer iis construction
was awarded three years ago, and
since then thc general traffic of the'
city seems to have discriminated in
favor of the streets where bitulithic
is laid. The keenest observers have
made a special study of this paving1
here ami elsewhere, ami liny have admitted, Sometimes against their will,!
that it stands for all that is desirable
in connection wdth a modern roadway.
Contracts for bitulithic for the present season amount i" more than 500,
000 square yards. For the six years
ending 1912. total contracts swarded
lhe' ceimpany for pavements have' rep
resented more than 1,000,000 square
yanls.   The' best tribute to ihe    lUality
��� if  the wurk  done  is   the   fact   tiiat in1
connection with all this vasl amounl
��� if r adway, the m-e-e ssity for   i p
has never arisen.���Calgary Standard

In her trim  figure unite.
Sweetly they steal to me,
Clearly reveal to me
How disconcerting my plight.
Though I may sing to her,
What could I bring to her?
Only a heart in distress,
Futile my verse it is,
Empty my purse it is,
Bondage, not bonds, I possess.
Art is so tenuous,
Life is so strenuous,
Love such an exquisite trance,
Shall I beware of her?
Or shall I dare for her,
Like thc old knights of romance?

Mrs. Sanchez was so awed and surprised that she told the truth about

increased the farther she got from
the city hall, until she could stand it
no longer. Turning around, she re
traced her steps, and by the time that
she reached the office she was in a
fury. ^ Sailing up to the clerk, she
said. "I was excited when I was in

Some Queer Clubs
The institution (or discovery") of
some London clubs with curious
names and perhaps more curious objects has prompted a writer to make
some investigations into the different
sorts of clubs which have at one time
another attained notoriety. He
docs not. indeed, mention the famous
Hell-fire Club, which from what can
now be learned was much less lurid
institution than its title indicated, but
he has ferreted out the records of
some very curious associations, most
of which probably had only a brief
existence after serving what was
doubtless their main object���that of
providing a little novelty in the way of
sensation, and possibly a little local
fame for their members.
Many of these clubs have been connected with matrimony. In America
there was organized some twenty
years ago the Black Bean Club by
forty unmarried men of Geneva, New
York. The club met only once a year,
and at the meeting a box containing
as many beans as there were members
present were passed around, all the
beans with one exception being white,
the exception being black. The member drawing the black bean must get
married before the next meeting, and
all pledged themselves to remain
single until drawing the black bean.
The expenses of the wedding were
provided from the invested funds of
the club, and included a wedding tour
of three weeks and a complete furnishing of a seven-roomed house.
One of the most extraordinary clubs
London has ever known was the Sighing Club, the members of which were

supposed to be wholly absorbed in
thinking of their sweethearts. Each
would hold in his hand a bit of ribbon, a lock of hair, a purse, or some
other article belonging to the object
of his affections, and from time to
time he would address the article in
terms of endearment, no other speaking allowed. On initiation the member had to compose and recite a poem
in honor of his lady, and at the meetings a fine was imposed upon the
member who did not sigh five times
within a quarter of an hour.
To go farther back there was the
Abduction Club, organized in 1766 by
some well connected Irish youths, who
banded themselves together to abduct
heiresses and good-looking young women of gentle birth. As there was a
large membership, many forced marriages took place in consequence of
their exploits. The evil became eventually so serious that a special Act of
Parliament was passed making abduction a capital offence. Two of
the members were executed for the
abduction of two wealthy sisters in
1779, but the club was not disbanded
till 1802.
The Man-killing Club was limited
in membership to men who had kill-

ed opponents in duels. The conversation at the gatherings was confined
to bullets, wounds and slaughter. The
President was said to have killed half
a dozen men in a single combat, and
the seats at dinner were granted according to the number the members
had slain. At banquets a side-table
was provided for visitors who had
only drawn blood. The club had not
a lengthy existence, as nearly all the
members were executed.
Suicides' clubs have been long in
existence, and one existed recently in
Kursk. The club had for its motto:
"Death is the cure for all ills," but,
as set forth in its book of rules, candidates for membership had first of
all to show that they had a substantial reason for wishing to die. A would-
be candidate who presented himself
with the weight of ten or more years
of unhappy married life was received
with open arms.
Among others ot these dismally
sociable institutions was the Club of
Ugly I'"aces, founded by a gentleman
who boasted an enormously large nose.
Another member had a chin of the
size and shape of a shoehorn, another
a huge mouth, and a fourth very large,
protruding eyes. No one was eligible
for membership who had not some
facial malformation, and all members
on initiation had to make a speech in
praise of Aesop, whose portrait hung
over the mantelpiece of the club-
room. The Six O'clock Club was apparently rather more cheerful, It consisted of six members only, who met
at six o'clock in the morning. Dr.
Brooks and the celebrated Greek
scholar Porson were members of this
club. The Humdrum Club, on the
other hand, used to meet early in the
evening, and the members sat together smoking pipes until midnight, observing strict silence all the time.
