The Toronto papers have lately
made a great outcry abuut religious
frced-uiu in that city, but the statements are largely, one sided. Thc
minority in religious ideas and ceremonies have little freedom' iu that
city of church spires. We have seen
men shot and stoned in that city for
going to church in their own way.
The majority rules in Toronto just
thc same as in nearly all other places,
Oil! you may take the wings of the
And flop round the earth till you're
dead,        s
But you can't get away from the tuna
that they play
To that   blooming old  flag  overhead.

And wait lor the heavens to fall,
But you can't get  away   lrom the
papers that pay
And The Ledge beats the  best of
them ail.
Taking the cue from Salmoit would
appear that the me-n with tho queue

by the following letter which we
have received from Kaslo.

Owing to the fact that hundreds of

and if Andy will capture Spears and

what can be done in the matter. The
-Swedes are among the best class of

we dislike ('fheariugth.it they are

It we care not for our fellow men ihcy

us against ihe cinch. When selfishness is dead wc will hear no more
about the troubles that Andy complains of, but the greed for money
will always make buyers see no-difference between a Swede and a Chink
when it comes to .apparently saving a

all troubles is to. follow thc Golden

John .Mitchell, ihe labor leader wiis discussing an Knglish linancier.
His ideas of |*olit'cal ecu lomy, Mr.
Mitchell said, remind me of Marshall
Saunders of BraidwooJ.
Druid wood is an Illinois town, and I
p Sled my boyhood there. Marshall
Saunders had a fine apiary. He raised
good bees and gnod honey. It was a
pleasure to visit his neat, well-painted
city ef hives.
Marshall had an inquiring mind, and
he would sometim.'K ask himselfUrange
questions.    One   of the questions   he
a-,laltin,,.,lli. ',_•!/,.,!   I,;,.,....|,' „,.,., ,l,l...

Have l any right to rob these bees of
their honey?
And for a long I.jiw- he could not
answer that qiu-aiion to his uwa Kalis-
faction. Finally, though, lie G;aund an
answer. I heard him tell it to his
friend* wilh pride.
I used to feel mean, he said, about
robbing the beehive*, hut afler thinking llie matter over I see now I'm in
(he right. If It wasn't for me taking
lhe honey, all them bees would be out
oi houev the whole of next summer.
A Dangerous Sport
A. E. Macdonald, who recently made
at Oruiond, with a ninety horse power
car, five miles in a little over three
minutes, is a prudent, no less than a
skilful chauffeur.
Mr. Macdonald has no patience wilh
reckless motoring,. He believes that,
with ordinary care and caution, acci.
dents might be  altogether  eliminated.
Me said the other day :
It is a shame thai horrible fatalities
so often occur in automobiling. lt is a
shame lhat, at motor races, it is possible lo hear what I heard not long sicca.'.
An important race was to be run,
but at the hour of starting there was
some delay. The people became impatient. A man in a brown ponyskin
coat accosted oue ofthe officials and 1
la.'ard him s.iy :
Tlm race was scheduled for 2, and
here it is almost three. What is the
trouble;*'    Why all this waiting.'
TIm." official answered politely:
The ambulances and  surgeons
have not vel arrived.
Stick at the old, well known
Reliable Reliance Cigars
in Alberta. A farmer used to gather
the oil in barrels from the surfar.it seepage*, and sell it to his ueighbur* for
lighting and lubricating purposes. In
iooi a ueailhy lumha-rnuui at Ototokos
Alberta, went up lhe valluy and investigated lhe stories he had heard of the
oil find, and die indications being so
strong he concluded ta get an expert
from IViiiiaivliannia oil fields to make a
report. A company was then organ-
t-ed, and in 1902 operations were quietly bargun. At a depth of 1,0*0 feet oil
u'a* struck lhat .lowed 300 barrels a
"dnyA The hole was plugged, and then
the company -secured practically all the
land within the too mile area. Then
the cotnpany became oil crazy, but not
till the richest part of lhe territory was
jtaked out.   During the past few weeks
number ot* wells have been bored and
the oil Hows out even faster lhair it can
bat taken care of. This oil can be refined- wilhoutthc use-of sulphuric acid
making a saving of about from 40 to
50 cents a barrel.
Tits Canadian Pacific and the Great
Northern railways are building
branches tn Oil Cily, a new town lhat
das sprung into existence within the
past few months. Capitalists are rushing in to get on the ground Moor, and
from present indications it will not be
long before the Standard Oil company
will get its hooks on the whole of the
oil territory.
If you do not see what you want in
the way of wialththat Canada has under and on top of the earth, dig down
and help yourselves.

To reinove bedbug-". I have moved
into a house which seems lo be alive
with bedbugs, They come down the
walls and llie garret. Hou cun I get
rid of them? I have heard of smoking
ihem out widi brimstone. (Van it be

Tlie easiest way to burn brimstone is
in the form of sulphur candles, which
can be obtained from your druggist.
Iliirn one in each room and see thai
windows and doors are securely fastened a*o that the funics cannot escape.
If you cannot gel the candles burn

Pear Ik in Coconnutsi
Pearls are nol only found in oysters.
.Sometimes, said a lapidary, they are
found in cocoanuts.
1 once cut a cocoa nut pearl. It was
the size of a pea, and ils quality was
good. It resembled very niucli'an oyster pearl, only it was a little duller.
Cocoanut pearls are found in the
heart of the nut. Il is thought that
they are formed by the hardening of
the nut's flesh. They are, so to speak
a kiud of ci ytitallized   tumor   or   wart.
These pearls are rare. They are
rarer than oyster pearls. They are alia- cheaper than oyster pearls, being
less hard and less iraiislueent.

Tho Irrentstible Power
Jamie had been an interested listener
one Sunday morning recently to his
father's remarks regarding lhe Russian
Japanese war, particularly concerning
the wonderful work of the Japs in taking Port Arthur. When Jamie arrived
at Sunday school his mind vvas filled
with thoughts of war to such an exlenl
that he paid but little heed lo the lesson.
Presently the superintendent, who
had been dwelling on the theme of
miracles, asked:
Now cliildion, who is it wilh whom
all things are possible?
Up went Jamie's hand.
Well, little boy?
i    The japs, was the answer that elec-
j trified the whole Sunday school.
