urend gentleman might wilh truth have
added, it ofi lines resulted in the best

Rudyard Kipliog- visited my apart
ment once, said a New York publisher. He snt in that chair there.
He was in the height of his funic at
that time It was betore the outburst
of the Winston Churchill historical
novel and the Connn Doy'e detective
story. This brusque, jerky young
man was probably, just then, the most
brilliant star in the literary tirmanent
He talked beautifully. On his departure I eecortedshiin down on the
elevator to the ground tloor. Then,
\vhen I got into tho e-levator again to
go back to my rooms, I couldn't resist saying to the elevator man:.
Did you notice that short, thickset
gentleman in spectacles who came
down with me? Not partie'lar, why,
the man asked. „
That, lutiswered was Rudyard Kip
ling.
Kudyard Kipling? the elevator man
exclaimed. Uud yard Kiplitig, ,the

Prayer Drinking
During my stay, in Gambia, saiil
the sailor, the king was taken sick.
He rolled all over the mud floor of
the royal kraal. He groaned and
swore, and he touched his fat stomach
witb botli hands. He had, it seems,
a cramp.     •
Gambia is on the African west
coast, and the people there i-i very
primitive. "When the medicine man
arrived to treat the king, I went into
the krall behind him, being anxious
to sec what a Gaiubian prescription
would he like.
The~~king stopiwd-n3fing aboutT
He lay quite still on his back. His
stomach, much swollen, stuck up in
the air, and ho rubbed it gently wilh
the palm of his hand.
'• Do yer best for me, father, he says
to the physician.
Ua\e no fear son, the physician
answered.
Then this African M. D. took out a
wooden shue and a charcoal cru'-on
and he began to write. Scrutcb,
scratch, scratch, away he went.
The slate tilled up with fine, close
writing.
Do your best father, repeats the
king.
I'll spare no paius, suys the physician.
What aro you writing, Bays I.
A pra>er for our7' great king's recovery, was the answer.
When tho slate was lull, thc physician took some water and washed it
clean, and he sitvrd all tho dirty
water 'nticup. In this hero dirty
water he said, is tho prayer 1 hnve
just wrote. Drink my eon the
draught.   In It the prayer lives,
The klnir drained tho darkish
fluid out ot thc cup. Then he sighed
and said:
I feel better already.
The Gainbinn people told mo that
tho drinking of prayers In that way
was tho only kind of medical treat
ment thoy ever got.

To the Land Hungry
■ The lands in the Columbia ' Valley
hetween Trail' and Robson- "'on' both
sides of the river are unsurpassed' for
fruit raising. . This i- true of ihe bench
lands as well "us the men .'.•-: w-; t"':-.it lia'
close to ihe i'iv-. t. On ll" l.tnJ ■_ ms.

The farmers of -.""ire. val :y, -.vhici.   is
considerably north of the section  aibng
the Columbia between Trail   and-Rob-.
son,   grow  wheat to perfection.    It is
certain ihal the bench lands along  the
Columbia if cleared, would raise wheat
This fact would make the  section par-
si . .. r
licularly valuable to those who desired
to embark in the raising of chickens,
turkeys and ducks. ' By raising wheat,
the best food for fowl could always be
secured, and as fowl of all kinds bring
the highest prices the chance for making big profits in chicken, duck and
turkey raising are more than ordinarily
good.
The orchards around Trail,  some of.
which have been planted for nearly ten
years, produce enormous quantities of
, fruit and show the capabilities of the
soil. ..In the neighborhood of_ Kaslo,
Nelson and Creston a most encouraging degree of success has attended the
efforts of the fruit raiser.. In thc Nelson district in particular, all along, the
west arm of Kooteiiay lake between
Nselson and . Proctor, every available
acre has been taken up, and orchard
after orchard may be ' seen from tlie
steamer.in passing. In the section he-
Trail aud Nelson, and along the Arrow
lakes' for that matter, tlie soil, temperature and everything in fact, are similar lo those which exist along the- west
.arm of the Kootenay lake and offer
equal advantages to   the   fruit   raiser,
' the small farmer and the raiser of fowl,
or to those who" desire to' embark in
dairy fanning. There is this difference
however, lhat lhe lands along the,, Columbia can be purchased for less than
one-half the price for which it can be
obtained along the west arm of Koot-
cn.-iy lake.
'" It is a singular fact that nearly every
business and professional man in Nelson has acquired from live to fifty
acres of land at some point along "the
west arm of Kootenay lake and is engaged in improving il by putting up
country residences, clearingthe' land
and planting orchards.    The residents

nearby and equally valuable lands
along the Columbia River. In a few
years they would l'e,Jerivingxlarge incomes from the sale of fruit, and' during the interim they would luive pleasant retreats, where they could hiihland'
fish during the summer and .fail
months.
The hinds along the Columbia   River
have  lately   been opened  to  purchase,
and those who ilr-.ire to liuy^ lln-m  ca.i ■

DIVOltCE
I low. long are Canadians going to
stand the present absurd and antiquated system of obtaining divorce?
If this remedy for certain ills cfmarried
life is permissable at all it .should . be
granted through a responsible court of
law, after regular process aiid-other
regulations which render'' it available
to all sections of lhe community. Al
present although the right or remedy
is recognised, the cumbrous and expensive method of securing it hy a private
bill requiring the assent of both houses
limits it to the rich.'' The door is opened to the use of private influence and
the procedure lacks the safe guards
which this particular class of case imperatively requires.
■The other day a divorce bill granted
by1 the senate came up in the house aOI'
commons. It was discussed at some
length and carried on a division;' Can
anything less conducive to the public-
interest be conceived?' Divorce is allowed by law and should therefore be
granted where the necessary causes
exist. Presumably in this particular
instance they did, since the senate had
'So found, yet valuable public time was
consumed upon a matter whose nature
specially iinlitted.it for discussion by~J-.ii
irresponsible body. Common fairness
calls for the establishment of a court ol
competent jurisdiction to deal with applications for divorce, The present
system is unjustifiable because if deprives injured parties of limited means
of their legal right to redress and tlie
■stale-of-the-requisite-guarantees-for-the-
properand impartial administration of
justice.—Rossland Miner.
