Capt. James Smart, ol the Calgary-
Fire Department, while on a visit to
this city recently, had an experience
which ho will ruueniber for some
time. He had taken a room at the
Napanee Hotel, li cited about two
blt-cks from the Cr-iw's' Nest Fass
Coal Co's large coke plant, and during the night he was awakened "from
a sound slumber by the glare ol light
thrown from the burning oven3. He
did not wait to Iind out the causo ol
the. Hght, but nis thorough training
as a fireman led him to believe thai
tlie town was on lire. On the im
pulse ot the moment he decided that
sell-preservation was the lirst law ot
nature, and grabbing his dress suit
case he made a jump trom the *wn-
duw to the court below. Luckily lor
Cap he landed in the meshes ct u
wire netting that was stretched over
the court in which a couple of bald
eagles are confined. This broke Ins
fall, and probably saved him lrom
going home on crutches,
Alter bouncing up and down a few
limes he awoke to t'le fact that there
wad no tire, and ho immediately
called ior help to tako hiui out ot t!*e
lueslics ol what lie at lirst supposed
was a life net.

Instances settlement took place first
on the eastern shores, and the early
colonists wero of British origin. -Then
the love of adventure sunt thoso rug
ged pioneers further and ever further
into the unexplored vasfness ol  the.
west, and the great agricultural de
velopiuentof the conn'ry commenced
"With millions flocking from Europe
to the .States, population grew' rapid
ly, and whilst the west  busied itsell
wilh wheat raising,  the- east established manufacturing industries. An-
other twenty-five years  pasted, and
thc east while west  was  no  longer
wes1. but middle,  and   the  western
frontier had been _ushed a thousand
ini'es or more towards the  Pacific.
The last fifteen years  has  seen   the
centre of.the mining and manufacturing industries move after ihe wheat
raiser until Chicago,,and not  Pittsburg, is the base of supplies.   Meanwhile the latest development is  for
the establishment ofjnany industries
at the Coast—mining,   smelting,   i*c-
'ininjrand to a limited extent, manufacturing.   Thc enormous and rapid
a-rowth of such western cities as Spokane Seattle, Tacoma and Portland
is due to this movement.   'How i3 it
explained '}   S >lely on the irround of
thc discovery, winutrg and assembling of the raw materials requisite for
manipulation, into a finished  article
nearer and ever nearer to the new-
centres of population.    Thc effect ol
this has been to che.ipcn cjst by reducing transportation, and to attract
a large ii.dualrial population  to  the
cities to supplement the ever inc.*eas
ing agricultural development.   Thus
the whole community has been rounded ou*. each contributing its share
to thc upbuilding and enriching of a*
new country.   How is tbis paralleled
in Canada?   ^Yith*ex.^ctnes3 np. to n
ceit iin point.  -The east  has moved
west as far as from  the  Atlantic to
the Great Lakes.. Then comes that
thousand mile-of haitus which  has
produced nothin?*; andwhict/is both,
a severanco and- a cbnnec:u*g link
with the ereat west  beyond.   That
west, that Canadian* prairie, which is
destinatcd to feed the empire, is rapidly bt coming peopled, and  already
the fringe has overlapped the Coast
province,    It is too early ytt for this
new garden land to duplicate the history and experience if the American
middle west,   but  not  too  soon lor
British Columbia to have demonstrated that in every raw product essential
to a repetition of the   work  of aSan
Francisco and the Coast cities she is
richcr-than any other Pacific  province.   The  prairie  stretching from
Fort William to thc Rockies, nearly
fifteen hundred miles,   is practically
devoid of mineral, if we except low-
grade domestic fuel.   In fnctthcie is
no smelting fuel between Nova Scotia and British Columbia.   This pre
eludes the establishment of any extensive mnnlacturing  works  in all
that vast territory,   At-.-present requirements come cither from the far
east, or from the Suites by the way of
thc Great Lakes.   How long is the
rapidly developing Northwest going
to pay freight on its necessaries from
a point of origin ranging from fifteen
hundred    to  twenty-five    hundred
miles?   That is*|tI.e problem for the
west to solve, and on  the solution of
which its progress depends.   In every
agricultural implement, every piece
of machinery, every article of furniture, every suit of clothes, every pair
of boots  required in  Alberta,   Sas

population of tfio west? Instead ol

What hinders ?• British Columbia is
destined by nature, and nothing can
permanently resist her laws, to be
tho workshop ofthe Great Northwest,
theniitiingand manufacturing province of Western Canada. When that
day arrives she will be populous and
rich beyond any cistern province,
and will stretch out h<r hands not
only, to the prairies on her east, but.
to tlie Orient, waiting lor her industrial priiduct-.- What hinders? The.

Ripples of laughter folfoivcd him, hut
with 'llie"laughter there were many
(tears, for he knew how to play upon
Jiuman lieart-strings and runnitif*
■through the joyouH measures there
•were sometimes tones lliat were sobs
•net to music. He was a nalurul actor,
1iut really what made his performance
«o effective watllie truth that under his
.acute mind, there was a heart great
acnougliV to encouipass all his fellow
.men, to take up their, burdens and help
to carry them. His would have been a
01.irked personality, even had he never
_ -seen a theatre. This is what gave his
audienceo an iinprension that, while
aclianniiig them as they had never been
.charmed before, still he was not doing
liis best; that his mind and thoughts
•were higher than anything he had ever
portrayed or ever could portray.. After
Manila and Santiago, when the nation
was wild ever the great news Chaun-
ccy Depew said to him: "Jefferson,
liow do you account for the marvelous
.victories?" "From the actor's standpoint," was the reply, "1 should say
those other fellou/* had not rehearsed

- in it when analysed, will be seen -j. full

when death is in the a!r and annihilation imminent.
Ofc-uu'rsea'm.'in   so   gifted   and   so
warm-hearted as was Joseph   Jefferson
was gr'eally lined,    No  man   obtained
a position so high that he was nol glad
to be regislered  as Joseph   Jefferson's
friend; tip man was so   humble that  he
feared lo greet him, no  child   so   timid
that   it   feared without   hesitation   to
climb upon his knee, for Jefferson   met
his fellow men as llie  devout  Catholic
kneels in church, with a  king   on   his
left and a mendicant on his right, without awe ol the one or scorn of the oilier

Slick at the old, we!S known
Then   re-
"William A. I'inkerton, the head of
ertie noted detective agency, was talking
in Chicago about amateur thieves.
There are, said Mr. I'inkerton, more
amateur thieves than you -*r<aold believe
—men of good standing, even churchmen, who suddenly yielding lo an overpowering temptation, r.teal a pen from
a stationer, a toothbrush from a druggist, a book from live house of a friend.
Often the stationer, the druggist and
the friend overlook these thefis. Why
for the sake of a few cents, disgrace a
man for life? Sometimes, though,
they are afaie to retrieve iheir loss with
interest, yel without tainting tlie amateur thief's g«.tod name. I'll tell you of
a case in point.
One of Chicago's greatest millionaires
began life as a clerk in a general store
Sn the country. He was a good clerk.
He had his employer's interests as well
us his own at heart
On a certain morning" there entered
the -.tore a rich farmer. The farmer
bought ten pounds of wool nt 50 cents
.a pound, .-inJ then, when the clerk's
buck was turned, ; grahbed up a five
pound of cheese and dropped it in his
bag on top of lhe wool.
This honest farmer, you sec, had
been unable to resist a sudden great
temptation. He was scared now at the
thought of what he had done. He
•trembled; he looked at the clerk anxiously; so strange indeed, was his demeanor that the clerk became suspicious
He looked about the shop and missed
the cheese and al once knew ■ what happened.
The farmer was a good customer and
a good citizen. It would be unwise to
ruin his reputation. The clerk as he
made out the bill for the wool, asked
himself how, without exposing the thief
he might get back the cheese's value.
Suddenly a thought struck him.
By crinus, he said, 1 cin,l remember
liow many pounds that was.
Ten pounds said the farmer  prompt-
■iy* ■'■
It sciins like more to me, said the
clerk.   Arc you sure il wasn't more ?
Ten pounds, I'm positive was all, the
farmer said.
The clerk took the bag from lhe
man's hands. •
Just to make sure, lie said, we'll
weigh her again.
And the bag put on the scales a second time, registered of course, an additional five pounds, the weight <*f the
stolen cheese, which now 1I.0 farmer
paid at 50 cents, the rate per pound for
wool, instead of 1 2'cents, the -rightful
rate for cheese. Then this amateur
thief slung his bag over his shoulder,
And  departed   with   a   gloom*",   sour

I saw that he had drawn two cards
and figured it a>ut thai he had fours.
In fact, I had 110 right lo count on anything else, seeing (lie play he'd made,
and I felt in my bones 1 had him
skinned to death.
Then I did the courteous thing and
said lo him, young man I've got you
licked to a standstill, but being as I'm
host of the evening and living as I'm
slightly ahead of the game I'm just going to call you.
I'm darn sorry you're so polite says
he.    I've got the best hand I   ever   had

A Mothor'fi Love

This maternal love, he said, is perhaps the most beautiful and ihe most
heartrending iliing in human nature.
Ils beauty and its pathos have been revealed lo us by J. M. Uarrie as by no

Senator   Depew paused
Permit me lo .-bow you another side
Ol maternal love, a side that Mr. Uarrie
had not touched on.
In one of the Grand Central stations
