vufT's greenhouses.
On thc previous Monday atternoon
a large and valuable silver chain bag
was found In the same neighborhood
by Dorothy Garland.
All the articles have been handed
to the police and bave been identified as part of tbe proceeds of a
robbery which occurred in i\ sleeping
car on Sunday morning between
Golden and -Craigellachie. The property belonged to a lady who was
travelling from Port Arthur to the
Ceoast. She discovered her loss at
Craigellachie and immediately reported it to tbe Canadian Pacific
railway police who are investigating
the case, aided by Provincial Constable Rothwell. Two diamond rings
valued at nearly $l(iou and other
property have not yct been recovered.
On Wednesday morning while gathering wood. Willie Crawford saw the
watch, chains, brooches, cuff links,
bible, blouses stockings, sewing bags
and handkerchiefs lying beside thc
road at no great distance from bis
home, inst outside thc city limits.
He picked them  up and took     them
home to his mother who instructed
him to take them back ' and leave
them where he bad found them until
bis father's return. The same morning he found the three purses among
' the brush near the road between
PottrutTs green houses and the gravel
the gravel pit and Ninth street.
He brought them  home and    on    the
i return  of his  father all the  property
I was turned over to the police.
On Monday afternoon Dorothy Garland and Vera Hunt, two girls 15
years of age,  who live with their par-
\ ents between the Columbia river and
Pottrurt's greenhouses were going   up
j town after their return trom     school
j when they saw what tbey believed to
j be a   piece ot paper hanging   from   a
: tree near the road side. They went
over  to look at  it  aud  found      that
j it was a handsome silver bag. Dorothy Garland took the bag home and
Mr.   Garland  afterwards  gave    it  to
I the police.
Last night about 7 o'clock Mr.
Crawford and bis son Daniel opened
the door of their house to come up
town. They noticed a lantern hover
ing over the place where the jewels
were found. When the door closed the
man carrying the lantern took to the
road and evidently ran away and
soon afterwards thc luntern was extinguished. It is believed that
the   thief    had    revisited the      place
j in hope of recovering the proceeds of
i the robbery.
How the  robbery occurred  is      not
I known although it is believed that
thc property  was purloined trom the
| sleeping car by some one who left
the train at Revelstoke.

British Columbia growers are becoming a little alarmed lest thc effect of the Dominion advertising

have been made with the Dominion
government to secure a change in the
advertising in order to feature British Columbia apples west of Win-

carried out, but the provincial government has under consideration

I have some Bourbon in my cellar
that has been there for twenty-five

to accept the invitation—except Senator Beck. "What's the matter, scan-
tor?" asked the prospective host.
"Won't you come on over and have
some of that Bourbon? ' "No," replied Beck; "no, major, I think not.
You see, major, I have known you

me that any liquor that has remained in your cellar for twenty-five; years

Justification for
Use of Tobacco
For a justification for the use of
tobacco, I would quote Voltaire:
"The important fact to remember is
use, not abuse. Neither abstinence
nor excess makes a man happy." Although I do not put tliis forward as
a good reason for the use of tobacco, nowadays, with the bustle ol
modern life and the exaggerated and
unnatural rate of living which has
already vindicated the shortening of
life—man, perhapB I should say sane
men, require a counteraction to the
.nerves, and he might certainly do
worse than use tobacco, and I am
inclined to think that it is a generous gift (the properties of which were
only discovered as something of the
sort was required , to keep some of
us from thc use of narcotics. Of
course we know that it is absured,
nnd in many caieB the first step to
downfall, therefore this antagonism
to its use at all. Everything has
something in its favor, and who can
say that many men have not been
saved from worse things through to-
| bacco, which was sufficient to count-
| eract the mental and physical upheavals which we certainly are unable to avoid, .Mid kept the nerves in

Habitues of Christie's tell an excellent story of a certain nouveau
rlche, who sought to be in the
fashion hy attending auction rooms
and packing up trifles, not because
he had the collecting mania, but because if he was a purchaser at the
sale of Lord So-and-So's collection,
his name would very likely get into
the papers. The parvenu, however,
burned his lingerB rather badly, and
incidentally illustrated the adage
that a little lcurnlng is a dangerous
thing. Some silverware of the Stuart
period was put up, and bidding started at a few shillings. Mr. Parvenu
was amazed, and bad visions of
acquiring fame for a guinea e or so.
The bidding rose and rose; and Mr.
Parvanu had to go to Cl odd before
the silver was his. He put down a
"fiver"—amid mucli merriment. For
silverware, as he had forgotten, or
perhaps never knew, is auctioned hy
the ounce, and Mr. Parvenu's bid for
fame had cost him £700 odd.—Weekly Telegraph.

(h.) Relief, for the investigation of
all claims for aid, the determination
of the amount of assistance which in
each case may reasonably be given,
and for the close oversight of
moneys paid  out.
Ladies auxiliaries are invaluable in
visiting thc soldiers' wives and [ami-
lies, and supplying tin Intimate personal  touch   which  oftentimes    is    as
Decenary as financial aid.
To bave a just claim on the fund.
(1) It must lie shown that at the
time of reporting for duty the sol-
dier was a resident of Canada and
was supporting in Canada thc wife,
family, or dependent relative who
now  appnes for aid.
(2.) The fun 1 recognizes us being
on the sume basis, not only Canadian volunteers and regulars, but also British army and navy reservists,
and French, Belgian, Servian, Russian, and Japanese reservists who,
leaving dependents in Canada, have
gone to join thc colors. These soldiers ure all fighting side by side for
the common cause, nnd their families
in Canada are entitled to equal consideration.
(3.) Aid can be 'granted only while
the soldier is on active service. It
may commence. however, Ior thc
time that he gives up his employment or leaves his home, and be continued so long as he is with his regiment, allowing reasonable time Ior
his return journey to his home In
(•I.) Tbe names of families receiv-
Ing help should be transmitted to the
Central executive for verification and
Not many families will be left in
total destitution. The British government grants to each married man
a separation allowance amounting to
ahout 15 shillings per week. The
Canadian government will adopt a
similar course. Agu'.n there are often wage earners in the family who
do or ran contribute in part towards its support, Further, many
employ-en are continuing to pay to
the family of a soldier on active service the whole or part of the amount
which such soldier as an employee
bad heen accustomed to earn. All
these sources of income should be ln-
cjuircd Into by the Local Relief committee and carefully considered when
calculating what amount a fnmily
may justlv receive from the fund. For
example, in the city of Montreal, if
la woman applies for herself and
three children, aged respectively
twelve, seven, and three yenrs, she
is regarded ns entitled to receive, il
she has no other sources of Income
whatever, the sum of approximately
MS per month. ThiB wc uld be made
up by allowing her $1 per day on bet-
own account, and adding IS cents
per day loi I -hild between the ages
if ten and tltteen years. W rents for
a child between five uni ten years
of are. and ten eentB per day (or a
child under tive years. If. b<0WV<Ttl
•he receives ,i separation allowance
of |IB or f-2<l per month, the fund
Should be r-lieved to that extent anj
should  girt  her     only    the dirterenre
between $4.1 and 820; thnt is to say,
S25 per month. In some cases where
reservist families have relatives or]
friends in Great Britain, it may be
wise to allow passage-money to return home.
As thc custodian of the common
fund, the central organization will
he expected to exercise general oversight over the methods and activities of all the branches.
Funds locally raised may be transmitted to the Minister of Finance,
Ottawa, Honorary Treasurer, or
placed to the credit of the Canadian
Patriotic Fund in a local luuiK
When deposits are SO made in a local
hank, a list showing payments' made
by sui northers, together with a statement from the hank acknowledging
receipt ol the aggregate amounts,
Bhould be forwarded to the honorary
treasurer at Ottawa, 'in order thut
official receipt mav be issued. Funds
may be al any time transferred from
ie oil branch banks to their respective I ranches or agencies at Ottawa,
where  accounts  ,vill  be  opened  by tbe
honi rary treasurer,
Where local organizations furnish a
Msl eef givers, with amounts of Individual subscriptions, a suitable
-n-'- ii wledgement will be sent by the
honorary treasurer to each contributor. This will be in addition to
any similar receipt given bv the
local treasurer,
A reei rd < f all names, so far as
obtainable, of men going to the.
front will be kept at Ottawa, and
local organizations will be expected
monthly to send In a statement of
the names on the'r lists and the
amounts being allowed to each.
A moment's reflection will show
two obvious reasons why a central
fund is desirable:—
(I.) The aWlllty of communities to
raise funds inl the claims made upon local  organizations will he     far
from uniform. Some branches will be
able to collect more than they locally need; Others will have demands
beyond their power to satisfy. In
tbis trying time thc strong should be
wiilinc to hein hear the burdens of
the weak. So - e 'atlllies will be
found in districts where no relief organization can be formed. Hence the
need of a central hody that may-
stand behind all and see thnt in no
place throughout our wide dominion
innocent sutfprins is permitted to
(2.*i A central onranization is further necessary to make sure that the
scale of distribution, making due allowance for the difference in cost of
living, is annroximat lv the same
With each branch. Obviously, It
would be unfair for one locality to
support its families too generously,
while another was exercising the
rreatest economy, and yet both were
fnl'ing back upon the common fimd.
Hence there should be no objection on
the part of a local relief committee
".hen the central body feels it incumbent upon them to seek information
as to their scale of assistance, and
five them advice as to how it may
ve made to conform w'ith that gener-
ally followed throughout Canada.

Limitations ol the Fund. ,
It is asked, can this fund be used
to relieve a family whose breadwinner has not gone to the front, but
who is out of work and in need j
throuch thc indirect effects of tho
war9 The central executive realizes:
that this is a danier which threatens
at many places throughout Canada,
pnd must be adequately met, else
great hardship will ensue during the
Coming fall and winter. But, whatever might he their inclination, the
administrator* of the fund cannot
legally go beyond the powers granted by their Act of Incorporation, and
to relieve incidental distress arising
from non-employment is not one of
their powers, Several cities, however,
are taking up what might be called
double-purpose subscriptions: They
are first svtt'ni: aside an amount for
the Canadian Patriotic Fund and
then providing a further sum for the
relief of the locally unemployed. In
the expenditure of these latter
moneys the local authorities art in-
lei endently of the Canadian Patriotic Fund, for obviously, with conditions differing as they do in various
p.rts of Canada, no central organization can adc',*tiately deal with this
additional  problem.

The route to Tipperary is devoid of
any strategical importance, but it is
playing no mean part in upbuilding
what military experts term the morale of our troops. Tbe Germans
thunder '-Die Wnecht am Rhein,"
the French "Marseillaise," impressive and sonorous, and the Belgians
light galantly with their beautiful
"Brabanconnc" on their lips. But
the British sing no national air, they
go gaily into battle shouting an inconsequent music half ditty that hus
nothing whatever in it about death
or glory or the Bulldog Breed.
And  lest anyone does not know tho
words  of  this    epoch-making  chorus,
here they are,     fated for some    un-
futhomed reason become historic:
"It's a long way to Tipperary,
It's a long way to go;
It's a long way to Tipperary,
'    To the sweetest girl I know!
Good-bye Picadilly,
Farewell, Leicester square,
It's a long  way to Tipperary,
But my heart's right there!
The author-composer of this im-
perishnble lyric is Jack Judge a
music bull artist, and there is probably no man in the world more surprised than be—unless it is his publisher, Bert Feldman—at the "far
flung" vogue it. has so suddenly received. The British hero sings it
when reveille sounds: he sings it
route-marching to drown the monotony of "Boots-boots-boots sloggin'
up an' down again, he has familiarized his French comrades with "Le
chemin a Tceperaire and he sings it
when he takes his position in the
teeth of a raking shell Are. But why
he chooses this particular air nobody knows.
Certainly Mr. Feldman doesn't.
"Mind you," he told a Daily News
representative. "It's a jolly good
song of its kind—a good marching
tune, quite simple, and it don't require much breath to sing it, for
there are no particularly high or low
notes in it. But there are'other
songs with all these qualities; the
fact is, we can never say with any
rertainty whether a song will catch
on or not.
"The Tipperary song only just
managed to be published at all. One
day a comparatively unknown composer. Mr. Jack Judge, brought it
to me. He played it over, and I liked
its lilt, so I undertook to publish it.
But before coming to me Mr. Judge
had tried thc song on practically
every other publisher in London, and
they all  turned it down.

This the Conviction of Frank
W. Fox, Editor of C.P.R.
Press Bureau
Sole local agents -LAWRENCE HARDWARE CO., Ltd.
"Every calculation based upon expert investigation suggests that we
may, with thc utmost confidence,
look forward to a banner year Ior
tourist travel in 1915. Ab a result of
the war, the 'traveling public' cm-
braced in the lOU.niKi.OnO people in
the United States, who make a
practice of going on holiday jaunts
each season, muy be expected to
come to Canada in large numbers.
Tbe amount of travel to Kurope will
bc almost negligible, and the Panama exposition at San Francisco will
assuredly bring a host ol visitors to
points on ths  Pacilic const."
This statement was made by Frank
W. Fox, editor of the press bureau of
the Canadian Pacific ra'ilway, in the
Course of an interview. He is now
touring the West for the first time
nnd is collecting data for a series of
nrticies which will advertise the resources and attractions of this part
of Canada.
Mr. Fox, who is accompanied by
Mrs. Fox, will tour the Kootenay
:md Boundary country, making the
trip down the Arrowhead Lakes, and
then return to the cast via the
Crow's Nest Pass route.
"I think you may put it down as a
certainty that we Bhall have the
greatest tourist travel next year iu
the history of the country. Conditions in Europe will preclude tourist
travel. Very many of the famous
scenic points in France and Belgium,
which each year attracted thousands
ol travelers from the United States
and Canada are practically wiped ofl
the map. In respect to Switzerland,
the Mecca of so many tourists, it is
improbable that conditions in
Europe will permit of much travel in
that direction for some time to come.
The Panama Exposition.
"The exhibition at San Francisco
should have the effect of bringing
thousands of visitors to British Columbia from all pointB in the United
States and Eastern Canada. Crossing
the continent by one line ol railway,
they will wiBh to return by another;
and the great majority of them will,
1 have no doubt, come up here. We
are planning tor a great tide of
travel on our transportation lines
and at our hotels.
"In my judgement, one of the more
immediate effects on Canada of the
war will be a tremendous stimulus
to our productive capacity in manufactures. Before I left Montreal there
was already increased activity in
many of the factories, and with the
government at Ottawa co-operating
as it is, with the large commercial
concerns throughout the country,
such plans are being formulated to
embrace the new trade opportunities
which are opening as will assuredly
tend to the permanent prosperity of
the Dominion.
"During my visit to a number of
points in the prairie country, I was
much impressed with the fact that
the farmers there are more and more
going in for mixed farming. There
is, indeed, a marked 'back to the
land' movement on all sides, which
is most promising for the development of Canada along the most permanent lines. While the general yield
of wheat in the west this year is less
than last season, the farmers are
getting better prices, thus indicating
once again that the law of compensation works with unfailing exactitude.
Comparison of Food Prices.
"This is my first trip west, and,
while I have seen many things "that
have impressed me immensely, I
bave made one astounding discovery
The cost of living, as reflected in the
prevailing prices for foodstuffs, is
less than in Montreal and other
points in eastern Canada. When so
much has been said about the high
cost of living in the west thiB really
amazed me. Last evening I was dining with a friend und we had some
delicious cauliflower. I asked the
price and was inlormed that three
heads were obtained for lOo. In
Montreal I have paid 30c. for only
a fair-sized head of cauliflower. Then
in regard to meats. A good sirloin
steak retails at 30c per pound in
Montreal. The same quality ol meat
can be obtained here, I am told, at
J5c. per pound. Again, general goods
in the stores are certainly lower than
in the east Account for it? I can't
account for it. I know that wages
are hieher than in thc East. I can
only explain the lower prices for
vegatables on the theory that there
are more opportunities here for market gardening on a comprehensive
scale than in the east.
To Tour the Province.
"I intend making a leisurely trip
o*fr the greater part of southern
British Columbia, collecting data,
photographs, etc., on which to   baBB
a series of illustrated nrticies which
will he published in the leading
newspapers and periodicals ol tho
world, setting out the advantages
and attractions of this section of the
Canadian West. The Canadian Pacific
railway realizes thnt British Columbia iB, in its many scenic attractions, a real paradise Ior tho tourist and we arc going to do our share
of advertising.
"The Canadian Pacific railway has
for a number of years maintained at
Montreal a press bureau for thc dissemination of all information which
would be helpful in travel ami generally contributing to the upbuilding
and well-being of the country. This
/bureau, of which I am now in charge,
is taking hold of the work in more
aggreBRive form than ever before. I
have a stall' of trained newspaper
men with me nnd we hope to be nble
to do some considerable service to
British Columbia very shortly."
When the British     made their gal-
: lant stand against tho German     ad-
I vance at Mons,  the Middlesex    regi-
i ment was once again heroically     unfortunate. The regiment    which   was
' originally composed     of     Londoners
from the Middlesex militia, once carried  the     unflattering     name of the
"Steelbacks,"  because the    men were
accustomed to being flogged into   order.
It was at the fight at Albuera during the Penninsular war that they
displayed their extraordinary hulldog
fighting capacity. Out of twenty-five
officers no fewer than twenty-two
wore killed and wounded. Of rank and
file 570 were put out of action. It
was when the struggle was most
sanguinary that tho colonel yelled outi
in encouragement, "Die hard, men,
die hard!" Since that time the Middlesex men have been known admiringly as the "Die Hards."
A Better Remedy
Than Nasty Salts
Few people like to take physic, especially salts, because they are so
disagreeable to take and because of
the gripiiig and pains they cause.
Rexall Orderlies enable you to take
loss physic, and all without griping,
purging or excessive looseness. Salts
and harsh physics usually give only
temporary relief and often leave the
bowels worse oil than before.
Roxall Orderlies move the. bowels
promptly,   and     soothe,     tone    and
i strengthen the intestinal muscles,
leaving them healthy and regular in
action. They taste   like     candy, and
'. the movement they cuuse is ae easy
and natural as though your bowels
were in perfect health and you never
I had to take any physic at all. We
have so much faith in Rexall Order-
1 lies that we urge you to try them
with the understanding that.it tbey do
not satisfy you in every way, all you
have to do to get your money back
is to tell us.     We     honestly believe
' them to be the best remedy made. In

An exceptionally voluble golfer was
vainly endeavoring to move a ball
with his driver. Pausing in his efforts
he espied, watching him, a small girl
holding by the hand a still smaller
boy. Immediately visions of flying
golf balls flashed across bis mind.
"You ought not to bring your little
brother here," he cautioned the girl.
"Oh, it's all right, sir," came the
reply. "He's stone deaf."
There is very little glitter about
the business of getting the ammunition to the lino of battle, and yet
upon the certainty and celerity with
which thc operation is conducted depends tho result of tho conflict. Tbe
bravest soldiers in tho world without
ammunition could be safely and expeditiously destroyed by a corps of
cowards well equipped in this ro- '
spect. Now and then, especially In
the case ol a retreat, an ammunition train falls into tho hands of tho
enemy, and probably there is lighting
to save it, but as a general rule
those whose duty it is to get the
ammunition from tbe base of supplies to the firing line have little
fighting to do. Homo of them never
see any fighting. No branch ol thc
army is more thoroughly organised
than that of ammunition supply. In
none does there prevail a more rigid
discipline. None require! a greater
amount of Intelligence; and yet we
hoar little or nothing of the ammunition supply service. It is like the
water, which is never missed till the
well runs dry.
On the Line of Communications.
It is Baid that Germany in preparation for the war waB able to store in
Belgium, and even in France, large
quantities of war material, iocluding
ammunition, hut as n rule the supplying of the armies with Bhot and
shell has to bo arranged for after
the war has begun. The base of the
supply, of course, Is tbe ammunition
factories at home. Thence thc ammunition is sent by train to the nearest safe point to the army to be
supplied, and this shipment is attended by no more difficulty than the
shipment of a carload of potatoes
from one town to anothter. It is when
the ammunition leaves the rail and
passes into tho control of the supply
column that the real work begins. It
has then to go forward over the line
of communications, a line that it is
strategy of thc enemy to destroy or
interrupt if possible. Thc service for
forwarding the ammunition is divided
into throe branches, the base, the intermediate and the advance sections.
Ammunition Column and Train.
From the base go forward thc great
ammunition columns, nowadays forwarded by huge motor trucks. At
certain points along the line they are
met by ammunition trains, also composed of motor trucks, and each
ready to carry ammunition to a different brigade or division. In the
present war in France, for instance,
these trains are likely to have destinations a hundred or two hundred
miles apart, though in the present
instance the German ammunition
supply ia probably entering France
and Belgium by two or three main
roads. The ammunition train is
divided into two ammunition companies or battalions, which establish
the various distributing stations.
Each company or battalion is subdivided into infantry and artillery
ammunition sections, which supply
their respective branches. The trains
advamce to within probinlbly two miles
of the firing line, and tbc division
commanders are at once notified of
their arrival. At night their location
ia indicated by red lights, by day by
means of little flags.
The Combat Trains.
Here again the ammunition passes
into other hands, namely,-the win,?
known as the combat trains. Probably in the present war it will be
found practicable in some cases     to
uw gasoline i-onili.it trains, but aa m
rule the combat trains aro cart's,
light enough to bo hauled ut a gallop, and strong enough to cross tiie
where it is (ound impracticable to
forward the ammunition to the firing
line by means of wagons, pack animals arc used, tho sure-footed mule
being the favorite. Often, indeed, th*
ammunition is carried forward on
the backs of the soldicrB. When it>-
serves aro going forward thev ii»-
variab.y carry with thorn, in addition to their own supply of enrtri^t-
ges, enough Ior those whom they aro
going to support. The work of the
combat trains, whether done by,
automobile, cart or pack bores, \o
as dangerous ns falls to tho lot of a
soldier. The enemy is always alert
to identify a combat tiain and iir»
upon it, for it is calculated that the
destruction of one load of ammunition is more important than tho
wounding of a score ol soldiers.
A Varying Problem.
The officers in charge of tho ammunition transport have a more difficult problem to perform than those
in oliare^e of tho food supplies, for
instance. A soldier catfl as much on*
day as another, and it is enttf
enough to calculate in advance just
how much food will be consumed Ijj-
an army on any given day. It is
different with ammunition. One day
an array will need ten times as muck
ammunition as on another day. Som*
times for twenty-four hours there ia
hnrdly any firing. At other times
there is no cessation for days ut a
time. The principle the ammunition
supply experts go upon is that a
soldier going into action will huve
UK) cartridges in his belt, and probably another HO in bis pocket. Ia
the combat wagon there is alwaya
another 12d for each man. In the am-
manition train there are 12". In the
ammunition column there is us much
as haB gone before, and at thc bane
there is just twice as much as is ia
thc column. Therefore l/iOO cartridges are provided for each man. Each
field gun has 2,000 rounds, distributed in the same way.

beaten him into insensibility Ajoa
rifled his pockets and, "securing a ve«ry
considerable sum of money, left tba
body across the railroad tracks in
the hope that a passing train might
obliterate tho traces of his crime.
Unfortunately for Ajon the injured
man regained consciousness in time ta
escape death and immediately gava
the alarm.
