Trying to Injure Canada.
Interested parties in the
United States who have been
trying to stop tne flow of United States settlers into Western
Canada are resorting to contemptible means of carrying
out their ends, when fair methods have failed. They have
taken advantage of the drouth
stories and report broadcast
through the Republic that many
thousands of United States
farmers in Western Canada
have returned south disgusted.
This is of course said for the
purpose of discouraging immigration into Canada. There is
no truth in the statements they
are responsible for. The farmers who came from the United
States are content to stay here.
They like the country and they
are prosperous. As far as the
drouth stories are concerned,
they have been greatly exaggerated. Manitoba has suffered,
and so has Southern Alberta,
but Saskatchewan alone will
have a wheat crop of about sixty million bushels, and Saskatchewan is the province into
which most of the United States
settlers have gone in recent
The odds are greatly against
those who try to hurt Canada
by malicious lies. They cannot
prevent the inevitable. Western Canada offers too good inducements to be ignored.
W. J. White, superintendent
of the immigration agencies of
the Dominion government in
the United States, arrived in
Winnipeg this week from the
south. Asked in reference to
the statement that in the past
nine months 15,000 United
States settlers had returned to
the United States from Western
Canada, he said:
"Why should they go back.
If they go to North Dakota,
South Dakota, Montana, Idaho,
Minnesota or Washington, they
will find the high priced land
which they have left at $200per
acre. If they remain where
they are they can secure employment, if they need it, and
share eventually in the success
which has come to the farmers
of this country. Most of the
United States people in Western
Canada were well to do when
they arrived, and they had the
benefit of several good years.
These people, moreover, have
had plenty of experience of bad
seasons in their former homes,
and a bad year in Canada does
not dismay them.
"It is to be regretted that so
much publicity has been given
to the fact that so many United
States farmers have been coming into Canada. It is regrettable on this account, that it
has aroused a great deal of
jealousy, not so much on the
part of the government of the
United States as on the part of
powerful land corporations,
who are interested in the development of various portions of
the States. The increase in the
immigration from the United
States to Canada last year was,
however, so great (an increase
from 57,000 to 103,000 in one
year) that it is impossible to
avoid publicity.
"With reference to the increase in the number of people
entering Canada from the
United States, I may state that
in the first six months of 1000
we had from our St. Paul office
3,310 people and 182 cars of
effects. In the first six months
of 1010 we had from the same
office 5,561 people and 289 cars
of effects. The North Dakota
office showsan equal percentage
of increase, Illinois about the
same, Michigan somewhat less,
and Ohio about 100 per cent.,
while Kansas and Nebraska
have shown about 25 to 30 per
cent, increase in that period."
Wait for the Basket Social.
The Hosmer football club will
give a basket social at the opera
house on Monday evening, Aug.
22nd. Everybody should come
and help the social along. The
boys who are enthusiastic
enough to give their time to a
sport which is manly and
healthful should have every.en-
couragement of the citizens.

Canadian Made
No doubt yon will agree thnt if quality and price are equal every-
Canadian should buy Canadian made goods in preference to any others.
Not only is it patriotic—it's sound common feme. The money
spent for Canadian goods goes to build up Canadian industries and
prosperity, and makes it easier for every Canadian to uarn a good
On the other hand, money spent for foreign made goods goes out ■,
of the country to pay forugners—not to btnefh Cauadians.
Toilet and Medicinal Preparations are conr.pounded in Canada from
the purest ingredients which money can buy; Tin- National Drug and
Chemical Company of Canada returns to Canadians i:: employees'
salaries, dividends and other expense disbursements., close lu One
Million Dollars a year. In addition to this v»c spend millions every!
year in Caitada for raw materials, tins, bottles, labels, boxt-s and
caber supplies, giving employment to hundreds of Canadian tinsmiths,
glass workers, paper makers, printers, lithographers, box makers,
uml others.
So even if NA-DRTT-CO goods Mere only "just as good" a" tlio-;e '
imported from other countries, you would be following .1 ..eusible and
patriotic course in buying them.
As a matter of fact, though, NA-DRU-CO Toilet and Medicinal
Preparations are better than those imported. Try NA-DRU-CO
Talcum Powder, NA-DRU-CO Greaseless Toilet Cream, NA-DRU-CO
Tasteless Cod Liver Oil Compound or any other XA-DRU-CO pre-'
paration, and see for yourself.
Vou risk nothing in making the test; for if the NA-DRU-CO
article does not entirely satisfy you, return it and your druggist
will refund your money.

to have the finest summer resort in
Alberta uud one of the timst in the
west is the news brought to Calgary

"•We are planning extensive improvements in all our parks this
year," said Mr. Douglas, "and in a
short time tbe finest summer lesort in
Alberta will be established on the
Waterton lakes park reserve, situated
right near tbe American boundary
line, south of Pincher Creek."
In describing the. new resort Mr
Douglas said tbat one-half of the lake,
which is seventeen miles long, is on

Americans have been fixing up their
shorts for the last three years.
"This year we intend to do a little
fixing ourselves," he said, "and already tlie government have Bent out
surveyors wbo will locate a townsite
|i> near the lake. This budy oi water is
one of the finest in the west . for
canoeing, boating and fishing, and the
site is admirably adapted for a summer resort. As soon as tlie townsite
is laid out, a branch of the Canadian
Pacific will no doubt be built to
Waterton, and this will ensure thc
success of the scheme."

Tibet, has ordered a considerable force
of infantry and a mountain battery to
hold themselves in readiness tn go to
Gyangtse, if necessary, to support the

Victor'a, B.C.—Following the finding of wilful murder by the coroner's
jury, Gunner Thos. Allan, K. C. G.
artillery, was arraigned on the charge

It developed during the inquest at
the barracks that five'" soldiers knew
that Allan had murdered tbe commanding officer within two or three
seconds after it was committed, but
made no report. Gunner Ryan witnessed tlie reflection of the murder in
a mirror, but made no report until
three hours later. He is under military arrest.
While on fatigue the murderer was
heard by Bombardier Corrigan, wbo
was in charge, to make thr, ats against
Capt. Elliston only three hours before
tbe crime.
"Allun claimed the captain hud not
treated him right, and said, "I got
the bullet for Captain Flliston, and it
will find its billet.' " The threats,
however, were not taken seriously by
Corrigan. Captain Elliston, who is
the son-in-law of Charles Archibald,
the eastern Canadian linane-ier, will
be buried with military honors, the
entire garrison turning out.

sibly schools and colleges for the

The buildings of the farm arc kept

are grown. Pansies and carnations,
swe t pens, asters, veibena, phlox, the
de-licately-scented mignonette, the
gorgous poppy and many other kinds
are successfully grown, and show that
the surroundings of an Alberta farmhouse may be beautiful with a little
care in this respect.
The gathering was a very representative one, and the speak -rs were

The superintendent addressed the
crowd in the afternoon previous to a
general inspection of the animal and

Both  Sides  Conceded   Points   in  Dispute and Settlement  is  a
Ottawa.—Hon.     MucK- nzia     King,
minister of labor, announced that the
Grand Trunk railway strike had been
settled as a result of government intervention. He stated that the successful issue of the n gotia.ions was
due mainly to »Jir Frederic Borden.
Indeed, he remarked that had it not
been for the services of the minister
of mili;ia he did not believe thut the
strike would have been ended.
The Grand Trunk strike, which has
lusted two weeks and on,' day; which
has cost the company, the striking

could not be maintained, uud the
cap! al is eagerly discus i.'g the progressive measures agreed upon.
ll is known that the confreres
reached an agreement concerning the
veto power of thc bouse of lords,
which was the chief reason for them
getting together in committee, as it
were, instead of precipitating discussion by throwing the matter directly
iuto parliament, and that decision
curtails (he heredilary poweis of the
members of the hou-e of lonls ill the
government of thc people.
When the leading members of the
parly met and begun to discuss tile
affairs of the government, they went
oeyond the mutter of the house of
lords veto, unci the plut-foiin was
agreed upon by the leaders of botli
parties in parliament, and is certain
to be carried out.
It was decided, it i.s siii I, to place
Ireland and the Irish u.tder t.e control of a grand committee, so that Ireland would have Home Rub- in fact,
but not in name, and instead of.being
separate from the British Empire
would be more closely welded to it
This same plan, it was agreed, would
be extended to Scotland. Next, the
conference agreed upon the n cessity
for an imperial parliament, embracing
and linking all parts of the British
Umpire and forming the united stat -s
■f Great Britain.
The conference was conducted with
such secrecy that it is impossible to
give more definitely the programme
agreed upon, but that the results were
pleasing to all concerned is attested
by the dinner at the Hietz hotel in
•i private room with the* Colonial Sec-
retary, A. J. Balfour, Winston
Churchill and others as guests. The
utmost joviality prevailed and the
dinner lasted until almost midnight.

Ethel    Leneve's    Confidence  in  Crip-

Quebec—The rumor was persistently circulated here that Dr. Crippen
bus confessed. His confession, it is
undorslood, was laconic tind lacking
in any detail, but none the li'-is definite', und is wi lely credited.
Dr. Crippen is reported to have su d
quietly, without any emotion whatever, "Yes, 1 killed the woman." it
is further reported that ho affects no
regret, but that he will tell his story
when the proper time c-uui'S without
any attempt to over extenuate or to
excuse, simply laying certain (acts before the authorities.
Ethel Leneve suit a cahl" message
to her parents in Kngland, stating she
had told all she knew of the tragedy.
The message was sent after Inspector, Dow had spent several hours with
tlie young woman in the home of
Chief of Police McCarlhy. Later, Inspector Dow said: ".She is doing all
she can to shield Crippen. In her
discussion of the case she constantly
repeated that she believed Crippen
to he innocent.   We know better."
Detectives all il ny the reported eon-
fos ion of Dr. Crippen unanimously,
end with emphasis. This, however,
jrould probably be done even if it
were  true.
Claims  United States  Had   No  Right
Under Treaty of 1818 to Extend
Privilege to Outsiders
The Hague.—Sir Win. Robinson, al-
torney-general for Great Britain, continuing his argument b fore the fisheries tribunal doelar d that tho
United Slides was wrong in claiming
that the t eaty of 1818 guv it an apparent right. If the United States
had no means of remedying infringements of the treaty by Greut Britain,
the sanction of the t:eaty consisted
in  public  opinion.
He pointed out that tin* treaty had
not given the Unit, d States a privileged position in regard to lishing, but
only a share in the fisheries on the
same terms us the British fishermen.
Sir Willinm then dealt with the so
omul question in dispute, us to
whether inhabitants of the United
Slates in exercising the rights granted
them hy the treaty could employ us
members of their en ws fishermen who
tvere not citizens of the United States.
He answered tho question in the negative, nnd said that the treaty had
granted the rights only to inhabitants
of f'P United States to the exclusion
of others. The United St-'tos hud no
tight to extend the privilege which
the  treaty gave  them.

But   For  the   Most   Part   the   Savaga
Beasts   Were   Immune.
j     One  morning  not long  ago, before
the weather got so hot that the lion
longed for the comfort of the tropical
[ lungle, a party of three made a pil-
i grimage to  the Riverdale Zoo on an
; unusual  quest.    It  was to  make ob-
I servations and photographs upon the
| effect   which   different   music  as  ren-
elered by a phonograph has upon different animals.
There is the usual temptation to offer hasty conclusions as to the character of animals from the manner in
which   they   received   different   selec-
j tions, but this will be resisted, while
: a few teneral and safe conclusions are
j hazarded.    For   example,    the   noble
i lion was regarded as a fit subject for
i something   robust.    Ah,   we   have   it.
j We   will   try   Caruso  on   him.    With
| the   first   mild   notes   of   the   Italian
| songster,   the   lion   stood   and   pawed
the   floor   in   the   keenest   animation.
Then as Caruso warmed up the lion
became   more   attentive,   and   as   the
song  grew   in  volume  until  the  roof
fairly  raised,  the king of the jungle
turned   and   stood  facing  the   phonograph  horn in a state of wrapt contemplation that was a tribute to the
king of  tenors.
Of ull the unresponsive inhabitants
of the Zoo, tiie goats took the prize.
This experiment just put them where
they belong in the scale of culture.
The phonograph man hunted out a
Sousa march which we felt sure would
he popular in goat pastures. But it
had no effect whatever. Cornet solos
ami other delicacies were tried iu
vain, but when a resourceful attendant put some grass in the mouth of
the horn there was a procession up
the inclined post that did more credit
to the goat stomach than to the goat
The procession of experimenters
presently visited the Scotch deer.
Here, we thought, is an opportunity
to test this clanishness to the utmost.
So out over the Don Fluts there pealed Harry Lauder in his best voice,
singing "Stop Yer Ticklin', Jock."
The so-called Scotch deer must have
come from a remote fastness, for
Harry Lauder hud no charms lor him.
and he remained at the far side of
iiis pen and would not be comforted.
The llama made a picturesque effect as he came up to the phonograph, all alertness and curiosity. He
was evidently pleased with the cornet solo selected for his diversion.
When we came to the buffalo wolves
we had real wild things to deal with.
A band selection drove them hither
and thither over the pen. Then we
remembered the old story of the man
lost in the woods who saved his lift
by soothing the wolves with a violin. So we put in a violin solo by
Miseha Elman. The result was that
the wolf stood on his hind legs, threw
his head buck and howled.
So the narrative might go on. The
monkeys jumped about and scolded;
the peacock strutted at the sound of
the bund music; the brown bears
tried to dance on hearing the band
pluy; while the eagles, who were unresponsive to all other efforts, were all
alive on hearing a yodel song by Madame Schuinaim-Heink.—The Toronto

Professor \ lrcbow was almost as famous for his excessive bluutuess of
speech as for bis very remarkable
mental attainments. Often he spoke
so unfeelingly to tne students wbo sat
under him in tbe lecture rooms tbat
they huve been known to leave bis
classes and not return. According to
Berlin traditions, oue of tbe professor's
favorite replies to a wrong answer to
one of his questions was:
| "Certainly not. Any cook would
know better tban that.''
On the otber hnnd, be seemed to appreciate the spirit ln some of his students whlcb prompted tbem to answer
bim buck In very much bis own tone.
Once when he wns presiding In a very
old nnd faded suit of clothes be turned
suddenly upon a seemingly bashful
mun sitting near him and asked:
"Uo your eyes tell you the truth?

Without nn instant's hesitation tbe

It was once black. Now it is any color

Growth of  Postoffice.
The figures show that in the ten
years previous to the Postmaster-General's report for last year, new post-
offices hud been established at the
rate o( one for every working-day.
With the tremendous inrush of people into the Canadian West this rate
of extension must be greatly accelerated. Last year, the postoffices in
the provinces west of the Great Lakes
numbered 2,716, as against 045 in thc
same territory twenty years ago. In
Saskatchewan alone tbere were, last
year, 8G1 postoffices, or almost one-
third more than in the whole of the
West in 1889. The increase has not
been in the West alone, however, but
has been general throughout the Dominion. Ontario last year had 3,694
postoffices, as against 3,228 ten years
ago, and 2,971 twenty years ago. That
trie increase in postoffices means better facilities for existing population
as well as new fucilities for new places
is proven by the fact that Prince Edward Island, which has fncreased but
little in population, had, last year,
465 postoffices as against 409 in 1899,
and 315 in 1889. For New Brunswick
the figures arc 1,397 for (909 as against
1,180 ten years ago, and 1,085 twenty
years ago. The number of offices iu
the Yukon last year was 21.

Sir William died recently in the old
country at the age of 72. He was one
of the brilliant roll of soldiers whom
Ireland has given to the Empire's service. Sir William was born in Tip-
erary, and started soldiering at tbe
age of 20. He served in many parts
of tlie world, and suw much active
service, in which he greatly distinguished himself, After four years in
the east, he went in 1870, with the
Bed River expedition in western Canada. Thu years 1873 and 1874 saw
him in Ashanti, and the following
year lie went on a special mision to
Bloemfontein, In (he Zulu war (1879-
80) he was staff officer ut the British
sen base. In 188'.! he was in Egypt,
and fought at Kassussin and Tel-el-
Kebir. Two years later he was selected by Cen. Wolseley to organize
the Nile Expedition for the rescue of
Gordon. He made a brilliant effort,

Rise and the Fall of the Famous State
Prison of France.
Tne famous French prison known
as ihe Bastille wus started ou April
22, 1356, by order of Charles V. The
Bastille turned out to be an important structure in nistory, and its fall
on July 15,, 1789, marked tbe beginning oi the French Revolution. It
was originally intended by Charles as
a defense against the English. When
it came to be used as u state prison
it was provided witb vast bulwarks
and ditches, ihe Bustille had four
towers of rive stories each on ench of
its large sides. It was partly in these
towers and partly in underground cellars tout the prisoners were situated,
it was capable of containing from
seventy to eighty prisoners, a number frequently reached during the
reigns of Louis XIV. aud Louis XV.,
the majority ol them being persons
of the higher ranks, ln its site now
stands the Column of July, erected in
memory of the patriots of 1789 and
The name bustille, or bastel, in ancient times was given to any kind of
structure calculated to withstand a
militury force, and thus, formerly in
Euglund and on the borders of Scot-
laud, the term baste! house was usually applied to places of strength and
fancied security. The French Bustille
was originally called the Bastille St.
Stephen Marcel, provost of the merchants, undertook the erection of the
French Bastille. The building was
enlarged in 1369 by Hugh Aubmot,
provost of Paris under Charles V.
He added two towers, which, being
placed opposite to those already existing on each side of the gate, made ol
the Bastille a square (ort, with a tower at each of the four angles.
After the deuth of Charles V., Aub-
riot, who hud many enemies, was
prosecuted for alleged crimes and wa?
condemned to perpetual confinement
in thc Bustille, of which, according to
some historians, be wus tlie lirst prisoner. After some time he was removed thence to Fort l'Eveque, another
prison, from which he was liberated
in 1381 by the insurrection of the
, Maillotins.
After this insurrection, in 1382, the
i young king, Charles VI.. still further
j enlarged the Bustille by adding four
towers to it, each 100 feset high, thus
giving it, instead of the square form
it originally possessed, thc shape of
an oblong or parallelogram. To increase its strength the Bastille was
surrounded by a ditch 25 feet deep
aud 120 feet wide. The road which
formerly passed through it was turned to one side.
The Bastille from its commanding
position was closely connected with
important affairs in French history
unci was occupied by the Guises in
1588, by Charles IV. in 1584, the Frou-
deurs in 1649 and Conde in 1652.
It was natural, therefore, that the
Bastille should be one of the first objects of attack ut the outbreak of the
Revolution. In July 15, 1798, the
populace of Paris, recruited chiefly
from the Faubourg St. Autoine, attacked the fortress and stormed it after a half-hearted resistance by the
governor, De Launay, aud a handful
of Swiss. The governor and seven of
his men were killed, the archives of
the prison scattered, aud the prisoners, seven in iiumtjer, were carried
through the streets and hailed as victims of tyranny and martyrs iu the
people's cause. The building itself
was torn down. The anniversary of
the taking of the Bastille is celebrated
every year as the national holiday of
A Tale of Russian Wolves.
A man was telling about an exciting experience in Russia. His sleigh
was pursued over the frozen wastes
by a puck of at leust a dozen furnished wolves! He arose und shot the
foremost one, and the others stopped
to devour it. But they soon caught
up with him, and he shot another,
which was in turn devoured. This
was repeated until the last famished
wolf was almost upon him witli yearning jaws  when—
"Say, partner," broke in one of the
listeners, "uceording to your reckoning, thut lust famished wolf must huve
had tlie other eleven inside of him."
"Well, come to think it over," said
the story teller, "maybe he wasn't so
darned famished, after all!"

who are timid, weak, nervous and
lacking in the functional powers of
the body so that they cannot act naturally    and   with   perfect   self-con-

All Round Athlete of the New Dominion  Is a Versatile Man.
It must be admitted that the winning of over 000 prize-? in the athletic
field by a man who is not yet twenty-
eight years of age is in itself a wonderful record. When it is mentioned, however, that these prizes have
been won in such a variety of sports
as long-distance running, jumping,
wrestling, boxing, cycling, football,
roller-skating, throwing the cricket-
ball and hammer, and putting the
shot, the record becomes even more
Mr. W. W. J. Ewins, however, the
all-round athlete of South Africa, who
holds this record, and is at present
contemplating a walking tour round
the entire coast of Great Britain, re-
| gards it very lightly. "Nature," he
said to an interviewer recently, "was
| very kind in providing me with a
fine frame and a particularly healthy
body. And being imbued with a spirit of athleticism, what was more natural than that I should have tried
to excel in sport?"
"But, then, Mr. Ewins, a great deal
is due to your own training?"
"Tbat is quite true; but I seemed
to take to athletics liko a duck takes
to water. I specialized to a certain
extent in running and walking, but I
was always very fond of a change,
and that, I suppose, is why I developed certain all-round skill. As a matter of fact, I could not even remain
true to athletics, for in my early days
I become a jockey and won a gooel
many races, not only on the flat, but
over the sticks, until increased weight
made me give it up.
"My most successful seasons in the
athletic field? Well, it is difficult for
me to say. I should think, however,
i that my best three years were in
j 1897, 1S98. and 18M. In tlie first year
j I was presented with a gold medal
I and a gold watch by the late President Kruger for winning most events
i at an athletic gathering, while in
1808 Lady Hutchinson presented me
with a diamond medal. According
to a little memo book I have, I find
that I won seven open boxing and
four wrestling competitions, got three
firsts in sculling races, and won three
road cycling races. I finished up the
year by breaking my ankle through
giving exhibitions of high jumping on
roller-skates. It was shortly after
this that I gave up jockeying owing to
increase of weight.
"In 1899 I devoted myself entirely
to athletics, and gave many boxing
and wrestling exhibitions, being presented with a gold medal by Lord
Milner, and then I met with another
accident, being foolish enough to try
and loop the loop on a bicycle, the
result being two broken ribs and two
smashed fingers."
At one time Mr. Ewins was champion cyclist of South Africa, and considerable interest was aroused when,
in 1902, he started the National
Sporting Club in Johannesburg. He
himself entered all the principal
events; and it was about this time
that he distinguished himself by winning a forty-five mile race, and came
in third in a sixty-four mile race.
Mr. Ewins was entered for the second Marathon race of 1908. A fortnight previous to the race he was
unfortunately bitten on the leg by a
dog. In spite of this, however, he
was amongst those to finish the race,
although not amongst the first arrivals. .

Origin of Hobson's Choice.
"It is a case of Hobson's choice,"
is a phrase that is used by many
people without knowing exactly what
it means, says a writer in Strand.
As a matter of fact, this adage has
been handed down to us from the
17th century and had its origin in
the eccentricities of one Tobias Hob-
son. This worthy was a carrier of
Cambridge, who died in the year 1630.
In addition to his ordinary business
he kept a stable and let out horses
to the students of university. He
made it an unalterable rule, however, that each animal should have
an equal period of work and rest, and
would never let one out of its turn.
Consequently, instead of being allowed to select the steed they most fancied, his customers hnd to take the
one that stood next to the door. If
it did not meet with their approval
they had to do without a ride. Hence,
the proverbial expression, "Hobson's
choice," used to signify a choice
without an alternative.

A Stroke of Luck.
The fact that Lord Annaly, who
beers the curious nickname of "Slop-
er," has been appointed a permanent
Lord-in-Waitlng to the King recalls
the fact that the fortunes of the family were partly due to a stroke of
luck. The father of the first peer
hnd dealings with a city firm in state
lottery tickets, and on one occasion
the firm sent him by mistnke a number of whole tickets instead of quarters, eighths, and sixteenths. As he
could not dispose of them they were
left on his hands, and he wrote to
say it must not occur again, but
meanwhile one of tlie offending tickets had drawn a prize of $100,000.
Picture Which Led to Marriage.
The recent denth of Sir William
Butler recalls the romantic story of
his marriage. He was lying ill at

Campaign, and his friends almost
bored him beyond endurance with
their descriptions of Miss Elizabeth
Thompson's picture, "Thc Roll Call."
At the first opportunity he saw the
picture, and was so impressed with it
that he asked his friend, the Duchess
of St. Albans, to secure lor him an
introduction to the nrtist. This she
did, nnd in a few weeks the gallant
soldier and artist were married.

Antarctic Explorer Has the Best Expedition   Ever   Sent   Out.
Tlie Terra Nova is bound for the
Antarctic. She carries the majority
of those who are to accompany Capt.
Scott in his endeavor to reach ths
South Pole. Capt. Scott rightly counti
himself leader of the most thoroughly organized expedition in the history
of Polar exploration. Given the man,
the expedition will not only be the
most thoroughly organized but also
the most determined that has ever
set   out.
Capt. Robert Falson Scott is a man
of keen sentiment and enormous enthusiasms, but they ure hidden below
the surface of a very placid ami unconcerned demeanor. The traditions
of the naval service on the one hand
and of the great explorers on the
otber inspire him. Clean-shaven, with
a strong and determined face, tight,
firm lips, and keen but kindly light-
blue eyes, be is just forty-two years
of age, his birthday being on June
6th. He wus thirty-three when he
lirst set out towards tlie South Pole
in the wonderful but too expensive
and not over-satisfactory Discovery,
in which he made the great expedition which penetrated furthest south
for tbe time being.
As a good captain he liked the Discovery, despite her faults, and if sen-
to lent hail been given full opportunity he might have tusen her with blm
this time. By a curious coincidence
she lies in the docks, and was almost
eeitliin hailing distance of the Terra
Nova before she suiled. The Discovery is in the service of tlie Hudson
Hay Co, to whom she was sold when
she had done her work in the Antarctic. But now the commander is
quite in love with his Terra Nova,
which he thinks the best ship in the
world  for  her purpose.
The first time he ever saw her he
resented her appearance. He was out
in thc lonely Antarctic then, cut off
from the world. It was on a sunny
morning In January six years ago,
the Discovery was fast in the ice, and
her situation, and indeed that of the
whole expedition, was a little serious.
The Government had guessed this,
and hud sent this old but carefully
chosen whaling vessel racing through
the Mediterranean and Suez Cunul,
tugged along at top speed by cruisers
and more cruisers until, with the
other relief ship, the Morning, she
came up to tlie edge of tlie Antarctic
ice pack. Capt. Scott and some of
his companions were discussing after
breakfast their plans for the day,
when suddenly they saw a ship. Then
Wilson exclaimed, "Why, there's another I" and there was the Terra Nova.
The sight meant safety and home
again, but there were considerations
which made the reflection not completely delightful. The Antarctic has
its claims and its hold, and the explorer has a very sensitive pride; and
so, before lie turned in that night,
Capt. Scott wrote in his diary. "In
spite of the good home news and the
pleasure of seeing old friends again, I
was happier last night than I am
However, he marked the Terra Nova
for her sterling worth, and he paid
$60,000 for her when he determned
on this new expedition, ln the meantime she had gone back to her whaling and he had returned to thc navy
to command battleships and cruisers.
A fair amount of money has now
been spent on her — most carefully
spent—and she has become a ship
of good looks and some excellent conveniences. She has to accommodate
nearly sixty officers, scientists, and
crew, and with the three years' provisions that she takes with her—all
selected this time with the most exceptional thoroughness and packed in
si>ecial cases so that no case is too
heavy for one man to carry—there is
no room to snare for anyone or anything. And yet the scientists' laboratories and special departments which
huve been constructed in her are big
enough and well fitted and complete.
There is nothing wanting.
Lore  of the   Wedding-Ring.
In the Isle of Man the wedding-
ring was formerly used as an instrument of torture. Cyril Davenport, in
his book on "Jewellery," remarks
that there once existed a custom in
that island "according to which an
unmarried girl who had been offended by a man could bring him to trial,
and if he were found guilty she would
be presented with a sword, a rope, and
a ring. Vfith the sword she might
cut off his head, with the rope she
might hung hirn, or with the ring
she might marry him. It is saiel
that tlie latter punishment was that
Invariably inflicted."
The wedding-ring was anathema to
the early Puritans, who regarded personal adornment as one of the many
snares of Satan. In tbe old English

Dominion Parole Officer Archibald
has just made an official visit to the
penitentiary at Kingston. This is the
first visit of Mr. Archibald since his
severe illness last winter, and his
many friends in Kingston were delighted to see him on the road to
recovery. When asked as to how
the parole system was working, and
as to the number of prisoners who
had been paroled since tlie* inception
of the system in Canada eleven years
ago, Mr. Archibald said that he was
at the present time making out e, report for the department, but could
perhaps give approximate ligur.s.
Since the system was established in
1899. he said about 3,100 prisoners
were* released on parole. Out of that
number eenly about 65 hud forfeited
their liberty. Thut is a splendi I
record, Mr. Archibald said. Nearly
2.000 have won their full liberty and
are in the enjoyment oi gooel citizenship, showing that they were not
criminals, but had yielded to temptation In moments of weakness, and
after cards deeply regretted their
acts and repented in sackcloth nml
ashes. One thousand prisoners are
still reporting. Last year 4ffl prison*
ers completed their paroles. Of tbe
.1,100 prisoners paroled In eleven
vears. 1,800 were from the penitentiaries and 1,300 from the jails und
The number   of   parolees   has   1 ll
steadily Increasing, but Mr. Archibald thinks that the limit has now
been reached. Last year the parcel.",
totalled about 573, or ah. cut 10(1
more than in the previous year. In
the prisons of Canada Mr. Archibald
said that there were about one-third
of the prisoners in whom the utmost
confidence could be put if lhey were
released on parole. There were
probably from 15 to 20 per cent, who
would be better Incarcerated for life,
as they were genuine criminals.
One year Mr. Archibald fallowed up
the prisoners paroled, of whom there
were 300, and found that they were
earning a total of about $120,000.
They had "made good," and were
valuable citizens.

Sermon by
Pastor Brooklyn
Brooklyn, July 24.—Once we considered most unkind, unjust, the Bible
declaration that our Creator condemn-
ed all of Adam's race with lim on
account of Adam's "Original Sin."
But now, in the light of the clearer
unfolding of God's Word, we nre privileged to see differently. Now we perceive, not only that God did no injustice to Adam's children, but, contrariwise, that in this very particular,
he did them a kindness—that it was in
the interest of humanity in general.
We are aware that this statement appears paradoxical to those who have
not vet gotten the proper focus upon
the Divine Plan. The key which unlocks the difficulty is the proper appreciation of the penalty imposed upon Adam und bis race.
The erroneous, unscriptural view of
this penalty which enme down to us
from   the   "dark   ages"    teaches    that
God damned father Adam, mother
Eve, and every child born to them to
an eternity cef torture ut th'1 hands
of devils. It is this unscriptural and
irrational view of the wage ol Orig-
inul Sin which caused all our diflicul-
ty. Indeed, lt is safe to say that no
other false doctrine held by G.d'a
people ever drove away from God,
from the Bible and from the fellowship of the Church so many intelligent
minds. Thousands of bright, honest
minds, ufter seeing this teaching of
the Christen creeds formulated in the
dark ages, have quietly withdrawn
from them in heart, if not outwardly,
saying to themselves, Evidently my
reasoning faculties are of a different
kind from those of ninny others prominent in tbe .Church: Without disputing the point, 1 simply conclude that
I must think for myself and tbat, in
so doing, I am forced out of sympathy with the majority of fellow-
Christians on this basic doctrine.
The difficulty is that while the majority of Christian people heartily repudiate these misrepresentations of
God and his Word, nevertheless the
subject is not clear to them and they
fear that to repudiate this doctrine
would be to repudiate the Bible and to
become open infidels. And just here is
their mistake. The majority of them
are not Bible- students. Even amongst
ministers of the Gospel comparatively
few have any degree of knowledge of
GoJ's Word. Tbey know what tbey
think about the liible; what they believe tbat it teaches; what they have
been told that it teaches; what the
catechisms say it teaches; but they
have never made critical investigations of the Bible themselves to ascertain its teachings. It is a part of
our endeavor to arouse Christian people everywhere to search and study
the Scriptures and to assist them with
liible study helps, Bible keys, etc.
And, thank God, there are thousands
in Spiritual Israel who are not bowing their knees to Baal, but who ure
anxious to know, to rightly understand, the Word of God. Classes in
Bible study nre springing up all over
the world. These have recently adopted the name of "International Bible
Students Association." God is blessing them, not only with the opening
of their own eyes more and more widely, but also in using them to bring
others "out of darkness into his mar-
.velous light" (I,  Peter ii, 0).
The Scriptures speak of a "famine,
not for bread nor for water, but for
hearing of the Word of the Lord."
This famine is upon us now. Not only
are Christian people hungry and thirsty for tbe bread cef life and the water
of life, but many of the worldly are
feeling a longing for something better
than the husks which they have. We
do not know that all Church members, nor all of any one Church mem-
bership, are thus hungering and
thirsting for Truth. But we do know
that everywhere in all the various
Churches of all denominations there
is a hungry cluss which cannot be
satisfied lo dishonestly misrepresent
itself as in harmony with the creeds.
These bewildered sheep are, of late
years, finding the green pastures und
stil! waters of Divine Truth and grace
—near tn tbem—in tlie Word of God-
hidden under the rubbish of ignorance and superstition, mistranslation
and misinterpretation.
But as for the masses of all denominations: Alas, they are falling into
unbelief! The popular form oi infidelity known as High Criticism has already swallowed up more than one-
hulf of the ministry and of the most
intelligent part of the laity. The only
hope for any of these is in leaving the
chuff and husks of medieval misinterpretations of God's Word and in
finding its true meaning, in which is
refreshment, strength and new life.
However we read our Bibles in tlie
past we read Into them from the creels
of u darker time the mischievous
error that when the Bible declares a
death epennlty for sin it really means
the reverse of this—life—eternal life
in eternal torture. Who lind the right
to twist the inspired weirds in such a
devilish fashion? Who had the right
to add to the Word of God niel to
muke void its true teaching in this
manner? Ileur tbe words of the Apostle, "The wages of sin is death | but
the gift of God is eternal life through
Jesus Christ out Lord" (Koinnns vi,
23). Whut statement could be more
simple? The wicked will not be granted life at all, cither ill pleasure or in
ipain. Tbey are under sentence of
death—destruction. Eternal life is a
gift. And it will be given only to
those to whom it will be a blessing—
'to those who will accept it through
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Let us turn to Genesis and note the
statements made to our first parents
respecting sin and Its penalty. Let
'us note that, without the twlstings
of theology, we should have no ditfi-
'culty in understanding the Divine
sentence, us our first parents evidently hud no difficulty. The sentence upon father Adam for disobedience wns,
"Dying thou sbalt die"; "Dust thou
nrt, and unto.dust shalt thou return";
"Thorns nnd thistles shall it bring
forth unto thee until thou return unto the ground from which thou wast
taken" (Genesis iii, 2, 3, 16-19, 24).
Thus we sec thut the penally for sin
upon Adam and his race was that they
should reluru to the dust. As we read
again. "Thou turnest man to destruction" (Psalm xc, 3). And this penalty
is sufficiently awful when we think ot
what it means to die, to lose mental,
moral unci physical perfection nnd
gradually go into tlie tomb—iuto the
"Since by man came death, by
man also comes the resurrection
of the dead; for as all in Adam
die, even so all in Christ shall be
made alive. But every man in his
own order; Christ the firstfruits;
afterwards they that are Christ's
during his presence" (I. Corinthians xv, 21, 23, R.V.).
mole bell (sheol, throughout the Old
Testament). And this sheol, the grave,
the tomb, to which the Bible says all
go, good and bad, rich and poor, holy
and unholy, was the only hill known
amongst any of tbe people of God for
the more thun four thousand yenrs,
represented by the teachings of the
Old Testament. Then came the New
Testament times and the teachings ot
Jesus und tbe Apostles to the same
pffect. In the New Testament the
Greek word hades, representing the
tomb, tin* death state, takes the place
of the Old Testament sheol in every
passage translated from the Old Testament into the New Testament.
It was nearly three hundred years
after Jesus anel the Apostles, after the
writing of the New Testament, before
thee doctrine cef Purgatory was invented. And for this reason neither the
word Purgatory nor the Purgatory
thought Is expressed iu the Scriptures. But Bibles were few, and the
people could not have rend them even
if they had possessed them; hence for
long centuries the teachings of tho
clergy were accepted without Bible
proofs, and the doctrine of Purgatory
spread nil over Christendom. All of
our forefathers believed in it. It became tli-- teaching of Christians evcery-
where that the mere handful of saints,
instead of dying when they seemed to
die, went to heaven and that the great
mass of humanity, instead of dying
when tbey seemed to die, went in
some mysterious manner to a mysterious place called Purgatory, of which
nobody knew anything except what
they wore taught. The teaching is that
practically all of humanity go to Purgatory there to be roasted anel otherwise tortured for centuries—ultimately to gain release from the torture,
when fitted for heaven. Upon this
doctrine in turn sprung the doctrine
of saying "masses for the dead," who
were believed not to be dend but intensely alive. The fear of Purgatory
drew the people very close to the
priests as the supposed counsellors of
the Almighty and the mass money
drew the priests very close to the people. They were all honestly intern
iioned, but all deceived by the great
By and by a priest, n Catholic theologian and teacher in one of their col-
li'ges, by name Martin Luther, aoci-
dentally ran across a copy of the New
Testament in the Latin language. Being an educated man he was able to
rend it: for there wns not one copy in
the German language anywhere. Luther tel's us of his perplexity in not
finding Purgatory in the New Testament. He tried to interest the Pope
in Bible study, but failed, nnd instead was branded a heretic. He protested, and others protested; hence
came   the   name   Protestants!
These Protestants were undoubtedly as sincere before their protest as
they were afterward; hence their protest was against the very doctrines
which once they had proclaimed ns
the Truth. Their minds were full of
tbe thought that a dead person is not
dead but more alive than before he
died, and that some of these at death
went to heaven while the great majority went to Purgntory. Tbey did not
see the teaching of the Bible, that
"the wages of sin is death"—that all
go into death, good and bad, and that
this death state is the sheol and hades
of the Bible. Instead of getting this
true light upon God's Word, they
went from darkness into greater darkness on this point. Here we wish to
emphasize the thought that all these
noble men, Catholics and Protestants,
in their day, like nil true people today, held 3 measure of Truth in combination with errors. It is the measure of Truth possessed and enjoyed
that has given any power and force to
our various Christian systems, and
that, to some extent, has neutralized
the effect of our errors.
Starting  from  their misunderstanding of Bible teachings respecting the
wages of sin, Brother Luther and his
noble companions battled bravely for
many   truths,    but   made   one  great
blunder.    When  they  concluded  thnt
j Purgatory  was contrary to the Scrip-
' tures nnd  threw it awny, not seeing
| the Bible hell, tlie tomb, they adopted
! another  hell  and  thereby  went from
bad to worse on this subject.    They
said, The heathen and tbe masses of
' the  civilized  are  surely  not  saints—
j surely they do not follow in the footsteps of Jesus—surely, therefore, they
cannot be of bis spiritual flock. Concluding that these could not be taken
! to heaven,  they said,  We must take
i them out of Purgatory anyway, wher-
1 ever we  put them,  becuuse  we  hnve
! found out that there is no such place
ns  Purgatory.
After conferences, seriously disliking to make our God's character
worse than they formerly supposed,
they   said    under   their   breaths,   We
must take* them out of Purgatory and
quickly put them into a bell of eternal torture •nd say as little about
the matter as possible. Tbey were
u'really relieved when long-headed
Brother John Calvin explained to
them nbout the mere handful mieiu
io nettven ana the great mass lining
lo eternal torture. He explained that
(Iced hail fore-ordained and predestinated these awful results — that he
might show his wisdom and his power.   As to a
"Love divine, all love excelling,"
Brother Calvin seems never to have
thought of that. Brother Wesley and
others since, though less logical and
theological, did stand up for and declare the Love of God, even though
rather absurdly they cluimed that ho
wns neither wise enough nor powerful
enoimb to do more than rescue a mere
handful of Adam's race from the eternal torture to which they thought God
damned them all because of the disobedience in Eden.
In the light of our better Bibles and
Bible Stilly Helps and minds freed
from the ignorance and superstitions
of the past we may understand the
Apostle's words and find in them, not
only justice and love, but harmony
and beauty. Instead of all mankind
going to eternal torment for Adam's
sin, ull go into the Biblu hell, the
grave, on nccount of his sin—and all
of the mental, moral and physical
blemishes of our race ure a part of
this  heredity.
There would have been no hope of a
future life, good or bad, bad not God
in his mercy provided the Saviour—
the "Life-Giver," as the Syriac renders the word.   In God's due time he
sei oetore nis Bon tne opportunity oi
becoming man's Redeemer. Tbe Logos
was made flesh (John i, 14) and obediently gave himself in death—"tasted
death for every man." As by one
. man's disobedience the sentence of
1 death passed upon all of the race,
: even so by tlie obedience of the mau
Christ Jesus unto death justification
to life' passed for all of that race. Now
we see the wise reason for permitting
the sentence to pass through one
man's disobedience to all of his pos"
terity. It was in order that one sacrifice for sin might make possible the
reconciliation of tlie entire race.
Now read our text and drink in its
depths   und   beauty   and   force.    The
resurrection of mankind from the sin
and death and tomb condition to the
full perfection and image of God from
which  the  race fell  is the  salvation
, which God has provided for all.   Who-
: ever will fail to attain the full recovery from sin and deatli conditions will
have himself to blame because of rejection of tlie glorious arrangements
', which   God   made   in   and   through
God  divides the  salvation of  man-
! kind into two parts — the Church to
spirit  nature  and  the  world  to  perfected human nature.   The first he is
accomplishing during this Gospel Age;
the second he will accomplish through
Christ and    the   Church  during  Messiah's reign of a thousand years.
The Church, the "little Hock" of
saints, called, tried, tested, iu the narrow wuy during this Age, are to constitute tlie "First Resurrection" cluss
und to become "the Bride of Christ,"
"the Church of the First-Borns."
These ure to be associated with the
great Redeemer In his future work.
These shall be like him, changed from

not preserve them in torture or otherwise. They will die the Second Death.
But none" will die the Second Death
for Adam's transgression. Christ died
for thut transgression nnd will release Adam and all his race therefrom, even while he will hold them
responsible for every willful transgression and give stripes or punishments therefore to teach them to live

A New Lease of Lifel
Only a few years ago a London "prophet" of the crystal-gazing variety declared that the end of the world was
at hand. He was even able to furnish the hour as well as the date. But
there was no panic, as nn enterprising newspaper was uble to announce
that the "prophet" had just renewed
the lease of his office for another ten
years. That fact made even the "prophet's" most enthusiastic admirers
About fifteen years ago there was a
panic in the north of Africa. The prophet—a Mohammedan religious leader
—so worked up the feelings of the natives that days and nights together
were spent in public prayer. The
panic spread from the Arabs to the
local Jews, who crowded the synagogues nightly. When he had worked
the emotion up to the proper pitch,
the prophet thought it time to commence business. He let it be known
that in the vision in which he had
been warned of the forthcoming destruction of the human race, he had
also been informed that he himself,
on account of his many virtues, would
be spared, and, in addition, his
friends. People found that if they urged him sufficiently they could become
his friends for a solid consideration
in cash. The news quickly spread,
and the prophet, instead of making
his fortune, found it advisable to leave
Africa promptly, and in disguise.
A Bolt From the Blue.
A nerve-racking spectacle was witnessed by thousands at Adelaide, Australia, one day lately, in the course of
a bulloon and parachute exhibition
given by Messrs. Rinaldo and Eastwood. A race was arranged, and Eastwood made a descent from a height
of 4,500 feet, while Rinaldo released
his parachute at 5,000 feet. The latter dropped, with the use of two parachutes, rotationally; but his final one
failed to open fully, and he could not
shake out the folds. Then he shot
down at remarkable velocity, covering
nbout 2,000 feet in six seconds. Fortunately for the aeronaut, he landed
in a big lig-tree in the grounds of a
nursing home. He tore the bark off
the limbs of the tree and he dashed
through; but his full was broken, and
thus a tragedy averted. His injuries
only consisted of bruises on the hip
nnd leg. When he fell through the
tree he hinded within a yard of a
baby in a cot, and within two yards of
a lady patient, who ran screaming
nwuy from tlie apparition.

or perish in the attempt." He did
perish in the attempt. Near Broussa
the natives made a (ien*e attack upon
his expedition, un.l Park wns obliged
to fly clown stream, taking the risk of
shooting tbe dangerous rapids. His
canoe struck a reek, split in pieces,
and flung him and his companions into the raging waste of foam. Park
made a desperate effort to swim
nshore, but was swept away and
Twenty years later, in 18213, Major
Alexander Lalng, another hardy Scot,
made n successful attempt to visit
the mysterious city of Timbuktu. Before he reached it he was set upon hy
Tuaregs—those masked bandits of the
desert—who left him for dead. But
though covered with wounds, he pulled through, and reaching Timbuktu
stayed there for some months until the
fanatic inhabitants drove him forth
into the desert. He reached El Arunn,
a small oasis in the Sahara, and there
was literally cut to pieces.
Capt. Ckipperton was another victim, but his death was due, not to
savage spears, but to the fever-laden
mists of the Niger. His servant, Rich-
aril Lander, tended him to the end,
nnd curried his pupers safely to the
const. On his journey, Lander had
many thrilling adventures. In one
place he wns caught by natives, and
subjected to the ordeal by poison—
that is, he had to eat a portion of the
deadly Calabar bean. By a mirncle
he came through it unharmed, nnd
afterwards, in company with his brother, conducted a fresh expedition,
which solved the puzzling problem
of the mouths of the great River
The greatest of all African explorers was David Livingstone, whose experiences of the "Dark Continent"
began in Beohunnnlnnd in 1840, and
extended over thirty-three years, during which time he walked tens of
thousands of miles over the bush
paths  of  Central   Africa.
His last journey was through the
upper part of the Congo Basin. He
describes the country as "one vast
sponge, intersected by countless
streams." The blazing sun beat down,
and raised a constant stream of mist,
and being the rniny season everything wns saturated day nnd night.
Under these awful conditions even
Livingstone's iron physique broke i
down, and his devoted servants made
a litter, ami staggered on through
the deep, sticky clay. On April 2fth
he made his last entries in his note-
book; on tbe 29th he was hardly con- |
scious. On thnt tiny they enrried him
into Chitambo's village, built a bed
for him, and aired the hut with a
good fire. He revived a little, and
lay peacefully all the 30th. In the
evening he culled to his body servant
—Susi—to bring his medicine chest,
and from it took a dose, and then
dismissed the boy. His pupil-Jacob
Wainwrigbt, a colored mnn—slept in
the hut with him, and woke early j
in the morning to attend his master.
He found him kneeling by his bed- e
side. Wainwrigbt waited a while,
then, growing uneasy at his absolute- j
iy motionless attitude, touched him
on the shoulder. The great missionary was cold and dead. He had passed from life in an attitude of prayer.
Wainwrigbt and the others buried
their master's heart under a great
tree, then, after carefully mummifying the body, carried it to the coast.
It was conveyed to England, and buried in the presence of reverend crowds
in Westminster Abbey.
Whut is perhaps the most dreadful
disaster in all the records of African
exploration befell the French expedition of 1881 under Col. Flatters. After passing safely through the worst
parts of the Sahara Desert, the treacherous Tuaregs swept down upon them,
and killed nearly all his men, including his thirty camel-drivers, nnd
drove off all tbe camels. The survivors, numbering fifty in all, started
back across the sandy desert known
es the "Thirst Country," pursued and
harussed day and night by their Tuareg enemies. Tbey met a tribe who
professed to be friendly, nnd who sold
them dates. The fruit was poisoned,
and many died in agony.
At last they reached the wells, but
these were held by the enemy, and
in the light that ensued all the Europeans hut one — Lieut. Polguin by
name-were killed. He struggled on
with a few native porters. But now
there was no food. The starving men
went mad. fell on one unother, and
the fate of poor Polguin i.s too ghastly to be here described. Eventually,
four sharpshooters reached the town
of Warglu, the sole survivors of 88
persons who hud set out full of hope
a little more than five months previously.
Old Time Journalist Says Few Believ*
ed In It In the 'Seventies.
Thomas A. Gregg, the veteran journalist, who is personally well known
from Toronto clear through to Daw- |
son City, has lately been giving some
Interesting reminiscences illustrative
of the Ontario politician's attitude toward the West during the seventies,
"ln May, 1879. the first colonization
train from Ontario left for the
Northwest," says Mr. Gregg. "As a
junior reporter on Tlie Toronto Mail,
I was ordered by the late Mr. Bunting, then managing editor of the
paper, to go with the party and tell
the readers of The Muil how they
fared upon the way and how they
reached their destination, for such a
party tnd such a journey were odd
or unique tilings at that time, und
subject of remark and wide speculation. The rancorous days that had
marked tlie transference of authority over tne Northwest to the Dominion Government hael passed away
and the tumult and the noise that
had marked the first rebellion of
Iiiel had some time subsided, and
the people at large were beginning
to turn their attention to tlie prairie
region as presenting grand possibilities. Part of the punitive force sent

get there. A propositi to build a
railway into the newly-acquired territory had overturned one Government and proved the imbecility of
the next, and now those who wished
to make the new land accessible
were met with denunciation, and,
what is worse, ridiculed. It should

Blake advised the people not to go
to their own Northwest, but to go to
Kansas and grow com. Nearer home.
Hon. Mr. Hardy and Hon. John

of those who would populate and
plant their own wuste places, and
cried to the multitude: 'Don't go to
the Northwest, where naught is seen
lint snow and sky, but go to the fertile plains of Dakota nnd get rich.'
And in order to aid their fellow-citizens to locute easily, they syndicated
a lot of land in Dakota and offered
it at a slight advance to settlers as
an earnest of their good intentions.
The men who took Mr. Blake's advice and went to Kansas are now

Winnipeg Men Capture Rare Birds
After Hard Fight.
The crested eagle, the finest bird of
prey in North America, which has
practically disappeared from the most
inaccessible recesses of isolated sections of the remote Northwest, supplied incidents the other day of a
thrilling story in which two Winnipeg men figured. In a wild spot along
the National Transcontinental Railway, some miles east of Winnipeg,
Wm. Carter and Fred Logan, while
hunting, discovered two great birds
circling overhead. They followed
them, and observed a nest high in the
top of a great tree. When they approached the location the birds swooped down upon them. The ferocity of
the attack convinced the hunters that
they had to deal with eagles of the
crested variety, and that there were
eaglets in the nest.
The hunters carried rifles and prepared to rob the nest. While one
took up a position where he could
command the nest with his gun, the
other climbed a tree. Twenty shots
were fired at the birds as they swooped and screamed around the tree.
Logan got near enough to the nest to
see that it contained the young birds,
but because of the ferocity of tlie parent birds they gave up the attempt,
determined to make another trip. The
male eagle followed them for a mile,
threatening every moment to eome to
close quarters with the hunters in
spite of their repeated efforts to shoot
A week later, equipped with ropes
and tools, they returned to the spot,
and were again met with a fierce assault. In spite of many shots the
eagles fought fiercely, but the eaglets
were finally secured. Then the hunters begun their retreat, alternately
dodging and firing at the two great
parent birds. For five miles the eagles
continued their attack, and at times
came to very close quarters witli the
hunters. Only when the inhabited
sections were approached did tlie
eagles give up the fight. The eaglets
are now in care of St. Boniface College. They are rare speciniens, and
though only a few weeks old, display
the ferocity of their species.
Why Americans Flock to Canada.
As a result of speculation, land
values have increased from 100 to
1,000 per cent, in different parts of
tlie United States. Acreage thut was
unsalable ten or twelve years ago at
$2 an acre is now commanding $10 to
$15, and improved farm land has gone
from $50 to $100 an acre to $200 and
$350. Fruit lands are commanding as
high as $3,000 and $4,000 an acre.
The direct effect of land speculation
and inflated vulues of land is emigration. This has assumed serious proportions in the Northwest. Pioneers
and settlers of five and ten years ago
have been driven across the border
into Canada to land still reasonable
in price and soil virgin in richness.
Last year 60,000 people went over the
line. They took an average of $1,000
with them. This sum of $60,000,000
subtracted from the wealth of the
United States in one twelve months'
period is significant. Now emigration
is even heavier than in 1909. It is so
great, in fact, that it demands the services of special trains to accommodate it. It is estimated that 150,000
American farmers will, this year,
abandon the high-priced lands of the
middle west and northwest for the
reasonable-priced acres of the Dominion. With production of American
staple products not much in excess of
home consumption, and the margin
decreasing, the loss of this number
of producers is of great consequence
to the United States.—Moody's Magazine.
Canadian Sculptor's Work.
A few months ago at the .annual
exhibition of the Canadian Art Club
in Toronto and Montreal were seen
two working models of tigers by Mr.
A. Phimister Proctor, the noted sculptor, who although a resident of New
York, is a Canadian by birth and
sentiment. He was born at Bosanquet
in Lambton County, and his lively
sentiment as a Canadian is shown
by his interest in the club in question. According to The New York
Herald, Mr. Proctor has completed
six bronze tigers. Two of these will
go to Princeton University, of which
the tiger is the symbol, and the other
four to the city of Washington. The
work has just been finished at Mr.
Proctor's atelier, 97 Sixth avenue,
New Y'ork, and the casting by the
Gorham Company is about to commence.
Mr. Proctor has been a sculptor of
animals of all kinds for many years.
The bronze panther which Col. Roosevelt's tennis cabinet presented to him
just prior to his departure for Africa
was his work, and a picture shows
him at work on a head for the elephant house in the New York Zoological Gardens. It is to be hoped that
some day some of his remarkable work
will adorn his native land.

Bank Clerks Inadequately Paid.
There's a shortage of bank clerks,
and a Montreal bank is adopting the
expedient of employing women for
minor positions. Within the past few
years some of the banks have brought
out young Scotchmen to fill the gap.
But the trouble seems to be the inadequate salaries paid to young men
to adopt banking as their vocation.
There has been an improvement in
this direction, but the increases have
not kept pace with the cost of living.
Hundreds of young men nre resigning from employment in banks to go
into farming, and they are adopting
other pursuits offering greater advantages in the wuy of salary.
After ten years' service in a bank
and reaching the responsible position
of teller, a young man may be rewarded with a salary of $1,000 a year.
Surely this is inadequate. Many
of the tellers are required to handle
millions of dollars a day for $1,200 a
year and even less money. The "honorarium" of a bricklayer or a plumber is even more princely.
Considering the heavy responsibilities of a teller's position he is entitled to a fair share of the dividends

he represnted tlie Dominion Government in tho fisheries case before the
British Privy Council. He is one of
the most famous Irishmen in the
Province of Quebec, in w'.oso capital
he was born in 1853. Early in life he
became one of the lenders of the Bur

famous cases to his credit as any man
in Canada. He wus chief counsel for
Louis Kiel at tiie time of the Rebellion; defense counsel for Hon. H.
Mercier nnd Ernest Pncnud in the

of the Mercier Government. He defended McGreevy and Connolly before
the Privileges and Elections Committee at Ottawa. Years he was president of the Irish National League in
Quebec. He sat for six years in the
Quebec Legislature, at the end of
which time he was called, in 1896, by
Sir Wilfrid Laurier to become Solicitor-General lar Canada.

'.'A horrid,
tashcSiiffBul all over my baby's lace and
spread until it had totally covered his scalp.
It was irritating and painful, anil caused
the little one hours ot suffering. We tried
soaps and powders and salves, but he got
no better. He refused his food, got quite
thin and worn, and was reduced to a very
setious condition. I was advised to try
Zam-Buk, and did so. It was wonderful
how it seemed to cool and ease the child's
burning, painful skin. Zam-Buk from the
very commencement seemed to go right to
the spot, and the pimples and sores and the
irritation grew less and less. Within a
few weeks ir.y baby's skin was healed
completely. He has now not a trace of
rash, or eruption, or eczema, or burning
sore. Not only so, but cured of the tormenting skin trouble, he has improved in
general health."
Zam-Buk is sold at all Eloreet and medicine ven-

Jvelvet or moire ribbon. This structure is either worn as a |
1"shell" or jumper over dainty waists of various sorts or is |
permanently posed on a foundation waist of white chiffon, .■

: this posed Chantilly waist \< veiled by an outer one of very \
thin chiffon or marquisette, but in either event it \> the Chan
; tilly to which attention is intended to be called.
It  i-> tlie foulard that  is now the popular*  Bilk  fabric for j
those useful waists which are a little dressier tban some tub j
waists and le>s so than the "veiled'' styles. Bordered  foil- !
lards are favored, the borders making very pretty facings or j
frills, collars or cutis.    Certain waists of this description -iic
very chic in effect, but not nil of them are successes so far 'ts
appearances go.    Plain fonlards trimmed with figured, or a
reverse arrangement are both favored, and it is noted that i
some of the smartest have the high boned stock instead of \
the Dutch ur frilled neck.    Persian and polka-dotted bdrden
or trimmings are favored over other varieties.
The usual madras and Bummer cheviots arc seen in tailored
waists, which depend on cut and simplicity for their smartness rather tban on the number of tucks or plaits that might
be employed in their construction. 'J hey will be worn with
smart linen collars.
Thin white waists are heavily incrusted with embroidery
motifs. Cluny or Irish lace insertions, ornaments, beading'
etc. aud the majority of them are shown with sleeve.*, ^v-uu'ig
only to or just below the elbow. Many are of the low-neck
type. Plaited frills are a part of a great majority of dressy
tub waists and while they are not novelties they are often
uniquely arranged. Crochet buttons, soft, washable, are oftar.
seen im some of the prettiest waists in connection with either
lace or embroidery or a combination of both.
For mountain, seaside, country or general practical wear
there are waists of wool fabrics in a variety of weaves and
deBigns, Persian effects, stripes, pin dots, etc.. are noted ii!
popular o Ual les, flannels and similar fabric*--. Must of these
waists ;tre rather "shirty*' in make, having yokes, shirt
sleeves and buttoned cuffs.
A GOOD way tn repair small boles in hollaud blinds is to
get some court plaster, cut a piece u little larger than
the bole, warm, aud place perfectly flat over the hole.
It. is easy to launder a plaited frill. Simply baste the
plaits tti position along the hem or lace edge before washing
them nnd Iron them that way. The basting can theu be removed nud the plaits will be in their original places,
Yardage frilling is mnde of various washable fabrics and
ordinarily the laces used are good. In high class frilling h.ind
embroidery is a favored embellishment. Ilemstitching, French
dots. Irish. Cluny and Val. laces nre all employed as a lini-di.
Everything points to an active demand for linen and pique
collar's, both embroidered ami plain, Embroidered effects in
the orthodox turn-overs are as popular ns ever and ar,: especially attractive in pique styles.
New | lain collars of ultra shapes are .Uso shown, tlie low,
rolling style in V-front effect which is especially smart with
tailored W!lists and the deep, flaring tnrn-dnwn which is "t \*
actly right'* in its shape and fit, being both stunning in
nppenrunce and comfortable as well.   .
A fancy of the season is to wear these collars with Windsors tied in bows or four-in-hands or with the tubular crochet
ties which have taken a new lease of life in most attractive
In the exquisite band-embroidered lines one finds that the
tendency is toward Hat stvles and this is also true of the Irish
ice combniations, but where lighter laces and nets are used
fully plaited, and often  rather long, effects are observable.
especially in the latest designs.
Side jabots still hold their own and are made of various
combinations of lace, batiste, net nnd Colored batiste nnd
Swiss. The ecru laces in connection with these jabots are
verv effective.    Cuffs are frequent accompaniments of such
"   " litS.
For general fruit stains use boiling water poured directly
on tlie spot. If this does not remove them use oxalic acid—
three ounces uf the crystal to one pint of water. Wet the
spot with this nnd place it in the steam of a boiling tea kettle
ou in The sun; rinse in cold water ns soon as the stain disappears, put ammonia on the spot to counteract thi' acid and
rinse again in cold water. Table linen should be attended to
at once when stained.
Kor cleaning silver moisten a chamois cloth with kerosene
and rub good und hard.
To wash windows quickly und with good results use two
tablespoonfltls of kerosene in u busin of cold water; wash ami
polish as usual.

The Forest Fire.
The fatal first of August again
came around with its accompaniment of fire and smoke.
All week a small fire has been
burning west, of the Elk lumber
company's camp ,'{, but was being held in check by a force of
about one hundred men. On
Sunday and Monday the valley
was filled so with smoke and
ashes that it was impossible to
discern the proximity of the
(ire or the direction it was taking. On Monday night, how-
over, a wind sprang up which
cleared away the density of
smoke, and on Tuesday afternoon the fire burst forth into
angry flames which, rising over
a ridge of Mount Hosmer, presented a magnilicient spectacle.
The Taxpayer.
I am the blithe and cheerful
skate who always has to pay
the freight. I labor in the heat
and dirt, and wear a faded
flannel shirt, and eat my dinner
from a pail, and pick my molars
with a nail, and use my whiskers if I'd brush from my chin
the corn meal mush. And well
dressed sports come up and say
"Wie gehts, my worthy friend
good day! We run for office,
and we hope that you will
harken to our dope, and help
elect us on that day when all
the voters put up hay. And if
we win we'll lift the tax that's
burdening^the worker's backs.
It is our sweetest hope and
dream, to fill with mince pie
and ice cream, and codfish balls
and pickled whale, the laborer's
tin dinner pail. O sturdy toiler, vote for us, and we will raise
the blamedest fuss, and put up
forty kinds of fights, until we've
got you all your rights!" I've
listened to this sort of bunc,
they've loaded me with fairy
junk, year after year since I
was young; what working men
has not been stung? I've voted
for so many guys who promised
that they'd help me rise to
heights of affluence and ease !
Just pass my dinner bucket
please. See what's inside—a
naked bone, some liver and a
slab of pone.—Walt Mason.
Injured at Pincher Mine.
A man named Alex. White
was brought to Lethbridge on
Friday last, and is now lying at
the hospital in a critical condition as the result of an accident
at the Beaver Creek Coal mine.
As near as can be learned respecting details of the unfortunate happening, White was in
a car at the mine when another
miner called to him, and on
White raising himself to converse with the other man, the
car continuing on its course, he
was struck by the top of the
gallery. Either from the position he had taken orfrom some
other cause, White was doubled
up and when rescued from his
fearful predicament was terribly bruised in nearly every part
of his body. The unfortunate
man was battered and broken
in several ways and the pain he
endured must have been excruciating. Grave fears are entertained at the hospital for his
recovery. It was first reported
that the accident was the result of a cave-in at the mine,
but such was not the case.- The
Lethbridge Daily Herald.

Splendid Vaudeville For Fair.
The Spokane Interstate Fail'
Management announces that
the High Class Vaudeville Program which will enliven otherwise dull moments between the
racing events will be the best of
the kind ever offered west of
the Mississippi river.
Robert H. Cosgrove, secretary
and manager of the Fair, has
just returned from a trip east
where he added materially to
the high priced Acts booked
early in the season for the week
of October '.i to 9. Ho picked
up additional top-liners at the
Moose Jaw, Sask., Carnival, at
the Winnipeg Industrial Exhibition, at the North Dakota
State Fair at Grand Forks, N.D.
and at the Minnesota State Fair.
At Grand Forks he witnessed
the exhibition given by one of
Wilbur Wright's flying machines which remained in the air
26 minutes. This exhibition
was such a success that Mr. Cos-
grove is now negotiating for a
similar demonstration at Spokane. At least four of the
highest class and most sensational of the many great Acts
imported from Europe will be
seen on this circuit.
