Ladysmith, B. C,Saturday, May I, 1909.
Stimson & Co.
Will Take Debentures
Qeorge Stimson & Co. have notified Mr. L. M. de Gex, their representative here, that.their firm are
prepared to accofit the electric light
debentures provided a certain clause
is inserted ln the preamble of the bjy
law. The aldermen have agreed to
this .change, and thc alteration will
be made at the regular meeting of
the   council   next   Monday evening.
This will dispose of the electric
light difficulty, and the tenders will
be called for at once for the supply of the necessary machinery and
equipment. As yet the site has not
been finally decided upon, and that
is a matter that should be arranged at once. With the putting in ol
the sewers and the installation ol
an electric light plant Cadysmith
should be a busy city thts summer.
Bids Adieu to
Duncan Congregation
On Tuesday   evening   at   Duncan,
/;js<Rev. Wm.     Forbes   HobertBon,  for
nearly    two years   minister ol the
•   Presbyterian Church   at that place,
was presented with an address   and
Mrs, Robertson with a purse.    Mr.
Robertson, who will have charge ot
'    the. Presbyterian    Cuurch ln  Ladysmith, preached his farewell sermon
on Sunday.   In replying to the address Mr. Robertson spoke feelingly
of the friendships he had'formed  in
Duncan and thc klndnesB he and Mrs.
Robertson    had   received, not only
from the memf.ers of his own congregation but   also    from   the   other
churches.   During the two years ol
his ministry   In Duncan the church
has prospered.   The congregation has
i        increased and a new, church has been
erected which ia. almost tree   Irom

himself, "and I'd like to have you
insert this ad. for me: 'Fifty dollars
reward tor the return of a pointer
dog answering to the name oi Rex.
Disappeared from the yard of the
Mansion House Monday night.' ",
"Why, we wero just going to
presB, sir," the editor said, "hut
we'd be only too glad to hold the
edition tor your ad."
Mr. Tarklngton returned to the
hotel. After a few minutes he decided, however, that lt might be
well to add: "No questions asked"
to his advertisement, and returned
to the Daily News office.
The place was deserted save tor
the skinny little treckle-taced devil,
who sat perched on a high stool,
gazing wistfully out ot the window.
"Where is everybody?" Tarklngton
asked.
"Gawn to hunt th' dawg," replied
the boy without removing his gaze
from the distant fields.
Wm. Brent Accepts
Amended By-law
Late Thursday afternoon a telegram was received from
William Brent, of Toronto, to the effect that the by-law
as amended would be acceptable to bis firm. The aldermen were immediately notified and a special meeting of
the council was called for that evening. It was decided
at this meeting to give the by-law the first and second
reading, and consider it in committee of the whole at the
regular meeting of the council next Monday night. It
will then be finally adopted and submitted at the earliest
possible minute to the ratepayer^ for their approval. The
result will be wired to Mr. Brent, and if adopted, he will
order the preparation of the debentures and forward them
to Ladysmith for the signatures of the Mayor and City
Clerk. Then the money will be available for the commencement of work on the sowers. There is no good
reason why this work should not begin the first part of
the next month. It will be a relief to the citizens to
know that the sewer problem has been finally solved, and
it is not likely that anything further will arise to interfere with the early completion of the work.
Great Future for
Prince Rupert
Mr. Qeo. B. McMillan, ot Prince
Rupert, was a visitor to Ladysmith
this week. • Mr. McMillan is visiting
the coast ln connection with an Important enterprise he is about to
float at lhe newclty.. He says there
is going to be lively times ln Prlnco
Rupert the coming summer, i A great
portion ot the townsite has already
been cleared ond there are graded
streets, sewers and other public utlW
ities now in use established. There
Is not likely to bo many down from
Prince Rupert, to the land sale at
Vancouver,' and there is somo speculation as to the way In which thoso
who aro already on the Grand Turk
Mineral claim will be dealt with,
hut he believes that the whole matter will he adjusted later on. Mr.
McMillan has lead an adventurous
life. He has been in nil the new
mining camps ln Australia and on
thePaclflc coast during the past 20
years. He was one of tbe Brat to
reach the Klondykc, ana last year
ho started one tor the Ingenlca by
the Ashcrott route. He succeeded
where others failed, but admit, tbat
it was tbe most difficult route he
ever travelled over.

Journalistic Enterprise.
Booth Tarklngton says that ln no
state have tbe newspapers mure, Journalistic enterprise than ln his native
Indiana. While stopping at a little
Hoosler hotel in the course of a
hunting trip, Mr. Tarklngton lost
one ot hie dog's,
"Hate you a newspaper In town?"
he asked ol tho landlord.
"Right across tlie way there, back
nf tho shoemaker's," the landlord
told him. "Tho Daily News, the

The Needle's Eye.
Ellas Howe almost beggared himself before he discovered where the
eye of the needle ot a sewing machine should be located. His original Idea was to follow the model of
the ordinary needle and have the eye
at the heel. It never occurred to
him that it should he placed near
the point, and he might have tailed
altogether if he had not dreamed
that he was building a sewing ma
chine .for a savage king in a strange
country. Just as in his actual waking experience he was rather perplex
ed about; the needle's eye. He
thought the king gave htm twenty
tour hours to complete the machine
and make lt sew. II not finished in
that time, death was to bo the pun-
Ishmont.
Howe worked and worked and put-
sled and pnstled and finally gave It
up. Then ho thought he wns taken
out to be executed. He notleed that
the warriors carried spears {hat were
pierced near the head, Instant]

Great Interest in
To-morrow's Match
A gentleman in Vancouver has received a letter Irom a triend in thc
Ingenica country, J. Pcttry, who
went in last year. It Is dated Fefi-
ruary 11, and was brought out by
way of Haselton. The letter states:
"There has been nothing good found
here yet. Only two have taken out
enough to pay their year's supplies,
one about 3 ounces and the other
about 7 oubcen. i Several oCuje*
claims took out a tew ounces, but
nothing to indicate anything rich
or permanent." Mr. Pcttry has tor
some time been operating on thc
Slough creeE, Cariboo. He has by
no means abandoned hope ot strik.
Ing it rich in thc Ingenica country,
and expects to remain tor another
year. '
and while the inventor was begging
for time he awoke. It was tour
o'clock In the morning. He Jumped
out ot bed, ran to his workshop,
and hy 9 a needle with an eye at the
I point had been rudely modeled, alter,
that It was easy. This Is the true
story ot an Important Incident In .the
Invention ot the sewing machine.

Tho W. C. T. U. will hold n social
evening on Monday, May 3rd, in thc
Mission Room of . the Presbyterian
Church nt.7:30 p. m. sharp. There
will he songs, recitations and games
prepared nnd refreshments will be
served. All active and subscribing
members and their triends are re-'
quested to attend, to make arrangements for tho coming ot Rev. Dr.
Spencer to this city on May 9th,
when It Is expected he will preach at
different churches and will speak afternoon and evening at Borne central
place which will be announced later.
The yearly meeting of the board
of management ot the Methodist
Church was held on Wednesday evening. Reports trom the different
departments of the work wore
brought under review. It was found,
that evory department showed signs
of progress. It was considered by
the members of the board that tbe
financial returns wero oxcellcnt especially considering that the services had been Interrupted during the
yoar. Mr. John Allsopp was elected
delegate to attend the district meet-
in Nonolmo next wook. Tho board
have requested tho conference to return tbe pnstor tor another year.
The King's Daughters' Third Annual Flowoi* Show was a success artistically, financially and socially
This annual event does a great deal
to bring together old and young
parents and teachers from all parts
of Cowlchan. Many ol our visitors

young people and 'exhibits from almost    all parts of Cowlchan, from
On the Sports Grounds to-morrow
the old-timers come together again
in what may be the final game in
the senior Island series. From all
accounts the Nanaimo United team
will be the strongest ever put on
the football field and when such plays
ers as Walker, Hurren Hewitt,
Thackeray, Mitchell, Harley, Blun-
dell, Mossey, hooper, Cruickshanks
anil Brown are mentioned, it is a
sure thing we can ' expect a good
game. It is also rumored that Calgary, Fernie and u.amloops have
been scoured for first class man and
if this is true, it can be seen our
neighbors are after a team to beat
us. Of course, it is unlawful, according to the constitution,, to play
players who have taken part in the
B. C. circle on thc Mainland and as
some oi the above named players are
Mainlanders there Is likely to he
something doin'g when they appear
on the field. This team Is the latest rumor from Nanaimo and as can
be seen six of the players are out of
town. The Nanaimo management
will be under a great expense to get
the players together.
The Ladysmith team has been undergoing steady training this week
and Jimmy lias had a special course,
with thc lawn-mower. Anyway thc
boys arc going in to win and a
draw or a victory means tho senior
Island championship here gnain. The
team will line up as follows:
Goal—Dougan,
Backs—Rogers and McDowell.
Halves—Muin, A'uiim, Wynne
Forwards — .Grnurgcr, . lAcUuirc,
Brass,  Wnrburton,  McLocd.

A special train has been arranged
by the   Ladysmith    Football Clur
manaEeuieuC to bring the crowd
from Nanaimo for the big game. Tbe
team leaves Nanaimo depot at 1:30
p. m. sharp and returning leaves
here at 5:55 p.. ra.
The Ladysmith band are obliging
the hoys by turning out to the
championship game to-morrow and
their music is certainly appreciated.
A part of the big grand stand bias
been reserves for the musicians, and
it is to be hoped the popular air,
"See the Conquering Heroes Come,"
will be the wind up.

Frank Locke, the New Westminster
player, and at one time, a member
of the Nanaimo United, has almost
precipitated an International crlslx
in Vancouver soccer circles. Frank
lt seems was picked to play with the
Englishmen at Recreation Park tomorrow. But' it appears that last
year he played for thc Scots and
hence the ructions. Frank is like
Jimmy Adums, apparently. He cannot get away from the fact ol Scottish birth and parontngc, although
he Is English In training and education. Simpson, of Falkirk, was boru
nt Liverpool, and for three weeks
breathed the air ol England. Since
I that time ho lias never been awn/
j from Falkirk. Vut still he. cannot
I play for Scotland. Locke has sot-
tied thc quarrel in Vancouver by
stating that lie never claimed to be
English by birth and that his selection was due to a misapprehension.
Now let the match proceed.—Nanaimo Free Press.

Mr. George W. Nash and Miss Elizabeth Hall Pntorson were united in
marriage last night at the home ot
the. bride's mother, Mrs. Paterson,
by the Rev. R. Wilkinson. A large
number of the* young couples' triends
were present, a number having come
down trom Nnnnimo to be present
at the ceremony. The bride looked
charming In her bridal attire. Miss
S. Paterson was bridesmaid and
thc bridegroom was supported hy
Mr. R. Belyea. A large number of
useful and bcautiiui presents were
sent In .by the friends of the young
couple. Both parties have many
friends here, having fived nearly their
whole life * on Vancouver Island.
Their many friends wish them every
joy ln their married life.
Much' interest Is evidenced in the
appearance here of Lena Duthie, on
Monday evening next. Lena Duthie.
a native of Aberdeen, Scotland, is
acknowledged throughout the civth
lied world, thc greatest living exponent ot Irish and Scottish song.
In her celebrated performance, "An
Evening in Scotland and Ireland,"
this charming artist- presents a mem,
orablo evening's delight. Music,
laughter and song are combined in
pleasing variety nnd Margaret Daniel, a noted pinuistc, Is also another
feature. Possessing a beautiful lyric
soprano voice, of unusual sweetness
and power as well as a most magnetic stage' presence, Lena Duthie al'
ways leaves a profound impression by
her matchless renditions ot the ' undying songs ol Scotland and - Ireland. It haa been a long time since
we have been visited by a really
first-class attraction and Lena Duthie and her' party will doubtless
draw a large and select audience.
The prices nave been arranged at
78, 60 and 15 cents. Tickets are now
on sale at Knight's Bookstore, and

A large crowd attended the firot
lacrosse match in Ladyomlth Thurc-
day afternoon when lhe local team
played a practise game with a team
from Extension.
Both teams had several old players on their lineup and although the
brand 01 lacrosse was not exactly tho
same as seen at Westminster, nevertheless the game was interesting an.)
exciting from start to finish, and
With a little more team practise on
both sides the matches will be Well
worth watching.
The Extension team had considerable the best ot lt ln weight, but
the home team iiul a more pertect
system and the result of 4 to 1 in
favor of Ladysmith speaks for itself.
Harry Provlna officiated as referee
and no one disputed his decisions.  .
Ladysmith secured its first goal
in about two minutes after play
started and tho next one ten minutes later after wuich Extension
scored (heir only goal ol the match.
The home team secured another goal
after half time and one Just before
the filial whistle blew. I
It would not be lair to select any
ono player as being belter than another. They all did their best, each
side determined to win nnd more
than that to popularise the game ln
Ladysmith;
Several more pTayers have been
added, to the team since Thursday,
many ot whom are football players
and it looks as if there will be a
boom in lacrosse this summer, hut
there Is one thing to remember and
that Is to have a pertect team the
boys must, practise find nights have
been arranged When all players
should turn out to get ln condition.

sistent with safety. These days
councils are expected to move more
rapidly than in former years, and it
is not likely that the Ladysmith city
fathers desire to be regarded as, exceptions to tbe general rule. There
is uo reason why Ladysmith should
not be lighted by its own plant in
three or four months. If the plant
is not completed early in the autumn
chances are that many more stores
will install other lights, and once
the latter are in it will be some
time before they are thrown out, and
the city will thus be the loser.

England is objected to on the
grounds that he Is a "foreigner."
It will surprise many to learn that
(Canadians in England are regarded
as "foreigners," but thc fact that
Joe always held Ideas that were
"foreign" to anyone else's may have
created the strange ruling.
The fact that Mr. Brent has accepted the amended By-law Is very
satisfactory to the citizens generally. The city council seems determined to, waste no Urns in getting the
by-law betore the people. Last
night the first and second reading
took place, and it will be considered in committee ot the whole next
Monday evening. The by-law should
be submitted to the' ratepayers in
two week's time.
M. Camille Flnmmarion, tbe
French astronomer, believes Mars Is
Inhabited and that thc Martians
were probably trying to communicate with the earth millions ol years
ago, before our mammoth and cave
men period. Never having received
a reply, they possibly concluded that
tbe earth was not Inhabited by creatures ot intelligence. In his opinion
communication' will not lie established ln our tinie, but perhaps will be
at a far distant.date.

To thc observant eye London
street names are the history ot the
expansion of tbe city in a highly
condensed form. They give one at a
glance a very fair idea ot the date
at which a district was built over.
This is especially the case with
streets named alter British victories
and British generals, Ot course proper names which continually recur,
such as Wellington and Nelson, are
of little use for this purpose, as
thoy are repeated in every newly
built suburb, but an unusual name,
or, better still, two such names for
adjoining streets, will generally date
the bouses nearly as accurately as'it
the year of erection was cut on. tbe
lintels.
Perhaps the earliest names ot this
class are Ureat Marlborough street
and Ramallles street, which parry
back the building of Hobo, thc Georgian Belgravia, to the early years
of the eighteenth century. Quebec
Chapel aud Quebec Mews, Portman
Hquaro, are names that tell us that
tho tentacles ol the builder had already crept well noilu of Oxlord
street, or the O'xlbni rood, as it wan
then called, at a time when Wolfe's
conquest ol Canada was still a ro-
*»»! memory. Still there cannot have
uui'ii much building north of the line
of Holborn, for Gruy, the poet, when
living in Southampton Row, In 1760;

spreading street's, it.Is curious how
strong a prejudice seems to exist
against names taken from events ln
foreign countries. Areola street,
Hackney, is the only thoroughfare

of them could hardly have touched
the national amour propre, while tbe
American Civil War Is entirely unrepresented among London streets.
There is an odd exception to this
general rule in Balham, where Sls-

relatively obscure Russo-Turkish war

Cultivation of
the Memory
.Tohn Stewart Blackle, for many
years professor of Greek at. thc university of Edinburgh, was born in
.Glasgow in July, 1809. Ho translated the Iliad in ballad measure and
wrote the article on Homer in thc
Encyclopedia Britannica. Among his
best known works are "The Wisdom
of Goethe," "The Natural History of
AthciBm," "The Wise Hen of Greece,"
"The Language and Literature of the
Highlands of Scotland," and "What
History Teaches." His little book on
"Self Culture" still enjoys a wide
sale on both sides ot the Atlantic, although first published 40 years ago.
Regarding cultivation ot the memory Frof. Blackle says: "It is of no
use. gathering treasures if we cannot
store them, tt Is equally useless to
learn what we cannot retain in the
memory. Happily, of all mental faculties this is that one which Is most
certainly improved by exercise; besides, there aro helps to a weak memory such as do not exiBt for a weak
Imagination or a weak reasoning
power. The most Important points to
be attended to in securing the retention of facts once impressed on tbo
imagination nre:
1. Thc distinctness, vividness and
intensity ot tho original impression.
Let no mun hope to remember Unit
he only vaguely and indistinctly comprehends. A multitude of dim and
weak Impressions, flowing in upon
the mind in a hurried way, soon van
Ish In a haze, which veils all things
and shows nothing. It Is better for
the memory to have one distinct
idea ot one tact of n great" subject
than to have contused ideas of thc
whole.
2. Nothing helps the memory so
much as order and classification.
Classes are always few, individuals
many; to know tbe class well is to
know what Is essential In thc character of the    Individual,    and what

TRANSFGR OF LICENCE.
.:i   " , ..   .
Notice Is hereby given thnt It' Is
my Intention to make application to
the-Board of Licensing Commissioners ot tbe City of Ladysmith for a
transfer of the retail liquor license
now held by mo on behalf of the, pre-
misesknown as the Hotel' Cecil from
mysolf to Arthur Cnmlll Carpenter.
JAMES 1). HILL.
' Udynmlth, l»th April, 1901 ■   -
least burdens the, memory to retain.
3. The next important matter is
repetition; if trie nail will not go in
at one stroke, let it have another
and another. In this domain/nothing
is denied to a dogged pertinacity. A
man who finds it difficult to remenv
ber that Deva is thc Sanscrit for a
God, has only to repeat it seven times a day, or seven times a week to
enable' hinv.to remember it. The less
tenacious a man's memory naturally
is, the more determined ought he to
be to complement it by frequent inculcation. Our faculties, like a slow
beast, require flogging occasionally,
or they make no way.
4. Again, if memory be weak, causality is perhaps strong; and this
point of strength, if wisely used, may
readily be made to turn an apparent
loss into real gain. Persons of very
quick, memory may be apt to rest
content with the faculty, and exhibit
with much applause the dexterity only of an intellectual parrot; but the
man who is slow to remember without n reason, searches alter the causal connection of the facts, and when
he has found it, Kinds together by
tho bond of rational sequences
what the constitultion of his mind
disinclined him to receive as an arbitrary and. unexplained succession.
5. Artificial bonds ol association
may sometimes be tound useful, as
when a schoolboy remembers that
Aibydos is on thc Asiatic const of thc
Hellespont, because both Asia and
Ahydotj commence with thc letter. A,
but such tricks suit rather thc necessities of an ill-trained governess than
the uses of n manly mind. I have no
faith in thc systematic use of what
arc culled artificial memory systemH;
they fill the fancy with a set ol
urbitriiry nnd ridiculous symbols interfering with the natural play of the
faculties, Dates in history, to which
this sort of machinery has generally
been applied, are better recollected
by the accidental contiguity ot great
names, and when I recollect that Yfa.
to was 20 years o,d when Socrates
drank the hemlock; and that Aristotle, the pupil of this Plato, was'
himself the tutor of the famous
Philip of Macedon, who with his con;
querlng hosts caused the language of
Socrates to shake hands with the
sacred dialect of the Brabmanic
hymns on the banks of the Indus.
G. Lastly, whatever facilities of
memory a man may possess, let him
not despise the sure aids to amply
provided by written record. To speak
from a paper certainly does not
strengthen but has rather a tendency
to enfeeble thc memory; but to retain stores ol readily available matter ln the shape ol written or printed record, enables a man to command
a vast amount of accumulated materials, at whatever moment he may
require them. In this view thc young
student cannot begin too early the
practice ot interleaving certain .books
nnd making a good index of others,
or in somo such fashion tabulate
bis knowledge for. apt and easy reference."
