One of them, who is fat, red-taced,
and coarse looking nurseB the bowl
of his pipe, staring with a codftsh j
expression straight in front of him,
as he listens to the other, who is
taller, thinner, harder, with an expression of alertness in his eyes.
There is a public house at the back

head, looks at the fine lady, and says
something short and bitter. The lady

Dub-dub;   rub-a-dub-dub!   People run
from the side streets and crowd into
the main     road.  Dub-dub, rub-a-dub
!dub!  There is a note of menace,   and
jet an awful exaltation in the sound.
i It is a3 if death     was     heating his
drum through the streets of   London.
But  everyone  is  smiling—bus-drivers,
taxi-drivers, policemen, carters,     und,
sellers of newspapers. Dub-dub; rub-a-
dub-dub!  Then the metalic sound     of
cymbals clashes    into the drumming.
I People press forward to the curb.   A
! Union  Jack is seen    passing between
the vehicles and the pavement's  edge.
We find a place where we can     see
: what is coming.     A    dozen children,
i three of them bare-fcot and all     of
them in  rags,  are  marching through
the streets.     Thc drum is an empty
tea-tin tied round the neck by a piece
of string. The cymbals are the lids of
saucepans.   On  a  piece  of  cardboard,
carried  by  a    bareheaded  ragamuffin,
it is written "England's Reserves."
The rnus'.c hall  is almost empty.  A

A young man, splendidly built, vigorous in body, quick of eye, and lirm
of lip, comes hurrying out of the admiralty. He is dressed in mufti—a
Mllycock hat on his head, an old
mackintosh over his lounge suit. He
takes a long stride, holding himself
rigid, the arms swinging but a little.
He goes to a taxicab waiting by thc
arch. An elderly lady sitting inside
leans forward as he reaches the door.
His face, for just one moment, lights
up as he meets her gaze. She knows
that he is to go. He gives an order
to the driver and jumps in the cab.
One envies  that mother.

The sun Iiub set, but above thc

sky is like a conflagration. From the
i oof of Queen Anne's mansions, thc
cold wind In our faces, we look upon
the most, beautiful and most wonderful sight to be seen 'in any city of the
world. It is a vast map, breathing
the life of humanity, and spreading
its unconscious beauty to thc stars.
Every detail sings to an exquisite in'
significance. Nelson's column is modest, the Duke of York's column is
grucious, the campanile ot Westmin-

it—is beautiful almost to ecstasy.
You see flashes of water through thc

The flares of thc Coliseum make an
orange glow in the sky and motor
cars arc flying through the trees,
Hashing their lamps, sounding their

barrack yard below where soldiers
are loading wagons; crowds march
through the park carrying flags and

with a sound that is like a swarm of

Canadian Pacific to Buy
Dominion War Bonds
A recent issue of the C'hicugo Tribune just to hand contains a diBpatch
from Montreal referring to thc activities of the Canadian Pacific railway
in connection with thc war. It speaks
of the cash contribution of the company to the patriotic fund, of the
contribution of one day's pay by
every employee, of the offer of a ship
for hospital purposes and other similar matters.
In addition, however, it contains an
important statement to the effect
that the Canadian Pacilic railway has
appropriated $50,000;000 In cash Irom
its treasury for the purpose of taking
up the 'issue of the Dominion govern-
'iient bonds, which will probably be
■lade for war purposes.
N'o official announcement to this cf-
fect lias been  made from     Montreal.

Gen. Sir Horace Lockwood Smith
Dorrien, who has been appointed to
command an army corps ol the British expeditionary lorce is now 5(3
years of age. He is a typical Kitchener man who has been in wars all
his life, and who has the reputation
of being one of the very few generals
who have made no mistakeB.
His active service began with the
Zulu war of 1870, three years after
he had joined the Sherwood Foresters, and since then he haB usually
been to the front when there has been
any fighting to be done. From subaltern to general he has won his way
always distinguishing himBelf and
winning in a remarkable degree the
trust and regard of the men, among
whom he is popular as only a great
leader can be.
After tbe Zulu war, where he was
present at Isandula and Ulundl and
won mention In despatches, he served
in the Egyptian expedition in 18s2.
ln 1885 be was at Suakin with the
corps ol mounted infantry he had
raised, and for three years was in
almost all ot the persistent fighting
with the Sudanese tribesmen, winning
incidentally the D. S. O. In India
at later dates he served with the
Chltral relief expedition and in the
Tirah campaign.
Gen. Smith-Dorrien was adjutant-
general In India in 1901-3, commanded the Quetta division 19011-7, was
commander-in-chief at Aldershot from
1007 to 191-J, and since the last named date has been general officer commanding the southern command.
One of the pluckiest actions ever
performed was his gallop to save the
Gordon Highlanders at Doornkop,
when his brigade wns moving to attack the main Boer position. The
Highlanders dashed up the hill Impetuously, and Gen. Smith-Dorrien,
realizing their danger ol being surrounded, galloped through a heavy
lire across the enemy's front to turn
them. He succeeded without injury
and calmly returned to his position
at the rear of the troops.
He is, hy the way, tbe brother of
T.A. Dorrien-Smith, locally known as
the "King of the Scilly Isles."

To the Editor of the Mail Herald.
Sir:—Kindly allow me space in youn
columns tor the following facts.
A small corps of men wearing the
British uniform, marching along our
country roads this afternoon, came
l'ight upon the enemy. An advance
was mide, then a charge to clear the
barricade in the form ol a five foot
fence, and lo, they were upon the
enemy, luscious blue plums, not German prunes,. The officer In charge of
the enemy however, had seen the advance and soon appeared. He put
the British to flight, telling them
that their advance was a disgrace to
the uniform they were wearing. Had
they come in a British manner he
would have surrendered all, and have
been proud to do It, but Ior the sake
oi keeping their uniform unsullied he
let them escape, but next time they
dirty the uniform an example will he
made of them. Now, Mr. Editor, il
this iB done in one case, it will be
done in others, and 1 think I am safe
in saying that every British subject
feels proud, ol every man who wears
r uniform these days, and will do al- !
most anything for thc comfort ol,
these men and give them what is i
known as a good time, but if petty
stealing ol fruit out of orchards iB
the result, then, I say lt is time we I
thought of some different treatment
than has been banded out this six
weeks back.
RevelBtoke, B.C., Sept. nth, 1914.
To the Editor of the Mail Herald.
Sir—Would you kindly insert the
I illowing hater In the columns ol
ymir valuable paper:
Being a musician who is tamlliar
with the history Ot both "f the bands
in our city, I was greatly interested
in a portion ot the last councils'
meeting report which was published
in the columns ol your valuable
paper. Before going nny further I
will say that. 1 am not going to write
tl lengthy article, ho I will go
straight to the point.
The city oi Kevelstoke has two
bands, viz: the I. Verdi band and the
city band, (hie ol the. bands in ques-
tlon is n good band, ns least alderman McSorlej thinks ho; no doubt
bis think is stimulated by the fact
that this band plays in the stand opposite to his hotel, Further I might
state that Mr. McSorley's business in
sight, prompted him to donate very
generously to the cause oi music, in
inct, he is almost solely responsible
for tin' erection Dl the above mentioned band Stand.
The City hand, be it good, bud or
Indllei' il   least by some   con
sidered pretty fair, especially     when
they want something for nothing.
The city councUl is going to give I
the hands a grant ot two hundred
dollars, which iB to be equally divided, this they decided to do after a
lengthy struggle. The struggle was
between men of fair minds and those
who have discarded fairness in the
race for almighty dollar.
The fair minded wo        tlis     speaks ,
well for our city council.
A few facts about other citieB may
prove interesting.
The little town ol Kelowna has a
band which 'is no better than either
of our bunds, and they receive each
year from the city a grant of §900.
When the City of Vernon had a
band they gave it a grant of $000 a
year, while Revelstoke, with two
bands is granting ><2l.i0. Nice, ah.
The one hundred dollars received by
each band will just nicely purchase
one good musical instrument, at this
rate it would take :10 years to have
a band of 3d pieces, and a band to
be a good one should have no less
than that number; no wonder Revelstoke has not got a good band.
In conclusion, I wish to say for the
benefit of those who do not see what
the Revelstoke City band has done
this year to earn this grant, the
Revelstoke City band played a number of Sunday afternoon concerts on
the Y.M.C.A. lawn.

In view of the fact that thc shooting season is now on the .following
dont's for the man behind the gun
which are written by an old sportsman,  may be valuable:
Don't, point a gun at. any person in
fun. This is no matter for jest. It
is always the gun that "we did not
know was loaded" that goes off. The
only time to point a gun is when you
intend  to kill.
Don't, carry a loaded gun or rifle in
a buggy, automobile or any other
kind of vehicle.
Don't get excited and shoot without
making sure your object is game.
Don't forget to "break" your gun
when standing with others or crossing a fence.
Don't pull a gun from a boat by
the muzzle pointed towards you.
Don't allow your boy to handle a
gun without lirst drilling him tbo-
roughly in the wny it should be used.
To allow him to pick up his knowledge in his own way is courting disaster.
Don't use u cheap gun. They are
apt to explode when using heavy
Don't rest on the muzzle'of your

These settlers have built grand country homes foi themselves and would

Canada if the railroad would only
grant them reasonable transportation

Completely Buried
Under Mass of Steel
The Golden Star glvet) the following
• account of the accident in -which   D.
L. Baynes lost hlB life*.
David L. Baynes, a brakeman on the
Kootenay Central branch ol the Can-
adian Pacific railway, was Instantly
killed on Tuesday afternoon on the
main line near Palliser. The deceased
was one of the crew of a work train
•travelling between Glenogle and
yPalliscr. On rounding a curve about
•one mile east ol Palliser the flange on
''•one of the rear wheels of the last
car broke, causing it to leave the
track and separate from the reBt of
the train. The car, which was a flat
•one, was londed with rails. Thc unfortunate brakeman was riding on
thiB car, and was completely buried
under the enormous mass of steel
when the car toppled.
Roadmaster Walker, who was following the train on hi" speeder, went
..at once to Palliser for assietance.
The remains were taken to Kamloops on Thursday for burial.
Deceased was very popular among
Lis fellow employees. He was 24
j ears of age and had been married
only a few months ago.
An inquest was held at the court
louse on Wednesday evening. Coroner
Dr. J.N, Taylor prefiided, and Messrs.
Bobertson, Beattie, MarkB, Sheirlock,
"Williams and Warren composed the
jury. George McCarter, of Revelstoke
represented the Canadian Pacific
Evidence was given by the members
ot the train crew covering the cause
of the accident, the condition of the
roadbed and the car, and the speed
at which the tra'in was travelling
when the accident occurred.
The jury returned a verdict that the
deceased met his death through an
accident caused by the breaking ol
the flange on the rear wheel of the
car on which the brakeman was riding.

Kamloops, B. C, Sept. 15.—David
Leslie Woolsey Baynes, who came to
his tragic end in a railway accident
at Golden, B. C, on September 8,
was born at Manitcu, Man., 20 yearR
ago. He was the son ot the late Mr.
.,nd Mrs. E.R.B Baynes who came to

neB was a friend of all that is just

sad end.
I The funeral service was held on

spoke on the 23rd. Psalm and after
the church service at the grave the
trainman performed their last rites
over thc remains of the departed bro-
■ ther. The casket lying beneath a wilderness of llowcrs showed eloquently
the high esteem in which the deceased was held by his friends. He leuves
to mourn his loss his wife, tive sisters, Mrs. McKechnan, Mary, ot Barrier; Nellie and Sarah, ol Revelstoke;
and Mattie ot Mt. Olie; also three
brothers John and Thomas of Revel-

(everywhere, J.J . Warren, president
of the Kettle Valley line, was able to
report to me the other day that work
is heing vigorously pushed ahead. He
anticipates thnt railways will be laid
and contact made in the Hope moun-
' tains late this fall.
"Steel has been fabricated for the
bridges over the Fraser river. The
work on the section of the line running over the Hope mountains ia 80
per cent finished and the grading east
and west of Midway is well towards
"The section of the Victoria Vancouver and Eastern Railway, which
runs from Princeton to Nicola Valley,
is progressing rapidly. In short, all
the plans which were formulated in
the Spring are mnturing in the most
satisfactory  wny."
T. H. White, chief engineer of the
Canadian Northern Pacific, railway,
who has just concluded a conlerence
with the premier, Sir Richard McBride, announces that tracklaying on
the main line iB now in full swing
west of Kamloops and from the eastern end of construction on the British Columbia side of the Yellowhead
Pass. Further shipments of rails are
due at Port Mann, but in the meantime there iB a good supply of rails
on hand. Already more than six mUes
of track has been laid west ol Kamloops along the north shore ol the
Thompson River. The contractors of
putting down track at the rate ol
from one and one-half to two miles

The gangs between Cisco and the
present head of steel between Port

found for more than .">00 men on thc
different branches of construction
work when steel-laying is started beyond the first crossing of the Fraser
The Cisco bridge, near Lytton, one
of the ma'in structures of the British

Improved Outlook
for lumber Industry
Hon. W.R. Ross, minister of lands,
is just in receipt of a copy of one of
thc leading lumber trade tapers of
London, of August 22, which is highly optimistic relative to the outlook
for the lumber trade of Western America. It forecasts the vast lumber
needs of the British Government arising out of the wur, and declares that
exportation of forest products has
been prohibited in Russia. This iB
taken to mean that, as soon as the
matter of exchange is settled, the
lumber business on this Coast iB due
for a great revival.
A survey of the general situation
by the officials of the forest branch
of the provincial government suggests
that the outlook is vastly improved
over what it was some months ago.
Mexico is held to be thc natural market for thc mills ot the Pacific coast.
Much destruction was wrought by the
revolution, but permanent peace
seems to have been now secured, and
with peace will come reconstruction.
As a matter of fact, Mexico ought to
be in thc market Ior more lumber
than ever.
Then there Is the improved outlook
in Cuba, which uses 250,000,000 feet
of lumber annually. In South America the lumberman is brought into
competition with Norway and Sweden. Their product will be almost entirely ahsorbed by Europe, and this
will open a new market for the mills
of the coast.
Stick to the Guns
Never before in the history of modern advertising has there been
a givati'r opportunity for lhe advertiser who is using tin- right
ammunition and who slicks to his suns.
Big business men and economists are united iu their opinion tbat
the situation existing signals a period of gi-nit prosperity for
Iteutreiicli ? lose the hard work of years through unnecessary
panic? NO! strike from a new allele! Head just: analyse your
business as you never did ln-fore : bring it up to modern standards; analyse your possible markets. In the face of apparent
certain failure seize the germ of supreme success and cultivate it.
Modern advertising will prove its worth now as never tiefore.
Advertising with a real plan behind it and a real object before it
will win out in the face of odds.
