Rev.  .1.  W.  Stevenson referred
the wonderful  work being done
world over by  the Y.M.C.A. especially at the training campB and at   the
front.  They  had risen    to the  opportunity and crowned themselves
glory. There wsre o
the old country  alone  ministering  to
l.OOO.iiiXi    soldiers.     'ihe dry c.uteeu
started by them had   do.ie   a   great
deal to do away   with  unii.uig of  all
kinds and the  Y.M.C.A.  tent  was the
headquarters for all the men when oil
duty.
J. M. McKay stated the work of
the R.W M.C.A. in railway camps had
been noticed by the Canadian i'acitic
railway, and it had a marked effect
on all employed including the foreigners. Mr. McKay st.ite,1. that the
Canadian I'acitic railway would prefer to look for employes through the
Y.M.C.A.  than from saloons.
Judge Porln congratulated the
toard on the work of the institution.
The Y.M.C.A. was an ind.spensible
adjunct to our existence. It taught
men how to livi and how to die.

the salary of the city electrician was
reduced from $172,511 to $170', but it

0, F. Lindmark asked the couucil
to connect the city roads with that
built by the provincial government to
the new siti jump. He said that the
government had constructed a road
trom th,' city limits to the ski jump
which would open up land for settlers. Since the roud had been constructed two hoimes had been built
and three tracts of land had oeen
taken up. The road would be useless
if the city did not open the streets
connecting with it. The government

investment.
The mayor said that the s'.u club
lead built a jump at a cost of from
.>l">fti to $2000 which was a credit t.i
the city. The government had built
an excellent road to the city limits.
He thought that it was necessary for
i be city to connect with thc government road. He looked for greal
things from the winter sjiorts. They
would he one of thc chief attractions
Ol the ejty and were expected to
bring ,n hundreds ol people from
n in mi the merchants and thc c.ty
would benefit. The cost of the road
would be some .$400.
Aid. Bourne said that the building
of the road was practicable.
In rejily to Aid. Smythe the Mayor
said that the ski club intended to
put up benches at the S'U jump nt a
cost of $3<M) to MOO. It would get a
,min to break the word's record even
'f he had tO he brought from Sweden
lt would he a Bplendld advertisement
for Hevclstoke.
Aid. McSorley and Aid. Smythe
thought that it was tbe duty of the
city to see that the connecting road
we may l.e lo'ated tomorrow or was built nnd an appropriation of
whether we will be able to write, but     l"i: for the purpose was made.
R. F. Green, M.I'., for Kootenay
arrived in the city on Wednesday aud
left on Thursday morning tor
the south. Mr. Qreen who is
making a tour of his constituency goes iirst to Nlj,soii whence he
will .proceed to Creston. After returning to Nelson lie will visit Kaslo
where he will spend Monday. Mr.
Green is accompanied hy Neil F. Mackay, member for Kaslo.
Work on the extension of the automobile road on Mount Revelstoke
wus expected to start about June 1,
said Mr. Green. Before coming to Revelstoke on Wednesday evening he
had met J. B. Harkin, commissioner
of parks, at Field and had discussed
natters in connection with the Re
velstoke park with him. All arrangements for proceeding with the work
had been satisfactorily made and
good progress is expected to be made
this summer.
That the coast had seen the worst
of the financial depression, was Mr.
Green's ojiinion. Conditions have begun to mend and, the lumber industry, especially, is showing signs of
reviving. The additional duty of 7\
per cent placed upon imported lumber at the last session of parliament
was likely to prove of material assistance. Tne government was anxious that the lumber Industry should
Obtain the fullest jiossible benefit
from the new duty and was determined that the dumping clause in the
tariff should he stiict'y enforced. Mr.
Green has taken up this aspect of tho
situation with the minister of customs yvho has agreed to appoint a
special officer charged with the duty
of seeing that foreign Impi rters do
not dump lumber on the Canadian
market to the detriment of the local
industry. Tiie lum >srman bave been
invited to appoint this otlicial themselves, bis salary to be paid by the
government. The recent order for
timber from the British admiralty
waa another good sign, said Mr.
Green, and is likely to be followed by
further large orders from Great Britain and  Europe.
Speaking of the new Kootenay and
Boundary regiment, in the creation of
which he took keen interest, Mr.
Green said that he had been informed
that recruiting was proceeding satisfactorily and that the class of men
enlisting was such as he had expected
would offer themselves for active service.

From reports received by the Hon.
W.R. Ross it would appear that there
is more activity in the lumbering industry at the present time than many
people realize, particularly along the
coast.
An interesting feature is tbe shaping of yellow piuc from Vernon district to New York uud the eastern
states, where it sells in competition
witb eastern white pine;, box manufacture is ulso active in that district

to the short winter.

Malakwa, B.C., May 21.-On Saturday evening last a meeting of the
Kagle River Valley Farmers' institute
was held in the hall. Various matters were brought up for discussion.
The main subject for debate, however, was the election of a committee
to look into tbe matter of making
arrangements for the government lecturers wno are to visit, thc district
on June :'. and ■'., to give lectures ou
general and agricultural subjects. As
bote! accommodation is limited and
a large gathering from Bolsqua,
Bowie and Craigellachie is expected,
arrangements are being made for
Malakwa ranchers to give accommodation to thc surplus influx of visitors
expected during these two days.
Owing to the rapid development of
this district of late years it is pro-
1 oaed to hold a fall fair here this
year, probably a few days before tbe
government fair at Armstrong, so
that tbe prize winners at Malakwa
can forward their "xl ihits direct to
Armstrong and thus ensure a first
class  exhibit.
Potatoes ore strongly In evidence as
the leading crop tins year, celery and
other vegetables taking a backseat.

IMPORTANCE OF FARMERS'
GARDENS
where illustration work was being
done for the commission of conservation, who desired to go into the poultry business, moved the garden out
to the field and had it attended to
as above suggested. This plan worked
so well that it has been continue<
and gives excellent satisfaction. There
is no reason why thc same thing can
not be done on many farniB, it will
mean that a better and more abuod-
ant .sujiply of vegetables will be obtained, and, ulso, that the woman'*
work on the farm will be considerably lightened. Every pound of foo*
supplied from the garden means that
there will he more of the other products of the farm for sale.—F.C.N.

AN TMTOSTETVS TRICK.
Tho Cheerful Liar That M«]« n Fool
of the (iraud Monarch.
Louis XIV. was taken In once in a
most humiliating way and by an im-
poster whose only art was lying. In
1667, just after he had returned from
one of his most dazzling military successes against the Dutch, Louis le
Grand received word that an embassy
from Persia had just landed at Marseilles en route to the French court
to bring salutations and presents
from the Shah. Pleased that his fame
should actually have run around the
world, he sent word that all the
towns on the way from Marseilles to
Paris should fete the ambassador.
As a result the journey to Paris
was a march of triumph. Children
sang and flowers were strewn along
the way. Arrived at Paris, several
regiments of the Swiss guard met the
Shah's representative and escorted
■ lm to a magnificent suite ln the old
palace of the Tullerleu. Louis sent
no lesa a person than the Due de
Richelieu to welcome the potentate
and Invite him out to Versailles to a
special reception In tho hall of mirrors.
The ambassador presented himself
aa Rlza Bey of the Persian court, and
after showing hiB credentials advanced to kiss the hand of Louis le Grand
and give him the Shah's congratulations on his recent victories. A caravan of presents from his imperial
sovereign wero on their way and
would arrive ln Paris ln a few days,
said the ambassador.
Festivals followed at Versailles
The bey received magnificent presents from Louis and royal entertainment. He lounged gracefully on divans at the French court and smoked
ln Persian languor. He gave the
grand monarque a few fragments of
opal and turquoise, saying that they
camo from a Persian district bordering on the Caspian Sea. The woods
there were full of them, he explained, and he offered to divide with
France—had planted the French flag
there already, as lt were!
At last the day came for the formal presentation of the Shah's gifts,
and on that morning early Rlza Bey
melted Into space. He was never seen
or heard of again. He had, as some
one said, "gone glimmering through
the dream of things that were." Thf
gems that he had left were worth, if
anything, about 16 cents apiece, being  plus:-.

In too hot water makes them tendel
and causes the threads to break,
After washing out the dust in warn)
water soap them and allow them t«
stand for fifteen or twenty minutes.
Then wash them by hand and alwayi
wring lace curtains carefully through
the wringer, never by hand. That
strains them and causes them U
break in places. Rlnso well In cold
water, then starch with warm starch.
If this process does not whiten them,
scald, but do not boll tkem. This ti
the best way to wash fine curtains,

SHADE TREKS ON BTRKETS
Their Presence Greatly  Bnhanoea the
Value of Property Adjoining.
In order to determine the value of
shade-trees on streets tbe advice of
practical real OState men was Bought
hy tbe Masaebuselts Forestry association.     A   largo  number  of  those  men
were usked this question: "How much,
in vour Judgment, do full grown
shade trees along tbe street improve
the value of Ibe adjoining land for
house-lots':'" Tbe majority of answers
ranged from ten to fifty per ccnt,
while some went so (av as to stnto
that a house-lot would be worth a
hundred per cent more' if full grown
shade trees were standing in front ot
it. A fair average of those answers
tails between twenty-tive and forty
per cent. Expert tree appraisers
say that in a large city, a shade-
tree, in good condition and well
placed, is worth one dollar per sqjiai'e
inch of cross-section, measured at
breast height. At that rate a tree one
loot in diameter is worth $113-.00.
while a tree two leet in diameter is
worth *4.rv2.oo.
Now thut we have seen the value
of a shade-tree to the individual, let
us lind what it is worth to. u town
or city. As all things are of relative
value, we must compare the shade-
trees to some other form of property
and in this instance take the material
of the street itself. Most town and
many city streets are made of macadam or broken stone. This paving
can be built for about 75 cents per
square yard. A street 80 feet between curbs, which is far above thc
average width, can he macadamized
for J2.60 per running foot, or IIU.50
for every 25 feet. With trees on both
sides of the street spaced fifty feet
apart, there would be one tree for
every 25 feet. If the trees average 13
Inches in diameter they are worth
just twice as much as thc paving in
th" street, This is not theory, it Ib
the judgment of practical business
men. and yet how few ever think that
tho trees on a street are worth twice

Big lumber Order
Placed for Government
What is considered to be tbe initial
fchijmient of a big order for British
Columbia lumber to he utilized Ior
government work in connection with
the construction of the Hudson's Bay
railway terminals at Port Nelson,
has just been placed by the Dominion department of railways and canals. According to a dispatch from
Halifax, the British steamer Durley
Chine, 1,157 net tons, Captain Davies
left the Nova Scotian pert early this
month, bound for the Fraser rlvtr to
load a cargo of 1,500,OIK) feet of
lumber for the Hudson's Bay port.
The Durley Chine is coming out to
this coast via tht: Panama Canal and
is scheduled to arrive early  in  June.
The big lumber shipment to be
loaded by the Durley Chine will c<m-
s-ist almost wholly of fir and will be
made up of bridge material, railway
ties and heavy timbers. The Dominion government is expending large
appropriations on the new railwuy
and steamer terminals to be built at
Port Nelson, whic'i is the terminus ol
the Hudson's Bav lino. Many thousand feet of timber will be required
Ior this great undertaking, and tbe
fact that the first laree order has
been given to a British Columbia
concern, indicates that further cjders
of a similar character will be placed
tm this side of the continent in. the
tiear future.

Phygical Department
This department of thc association
is as its name implies, maintained
Ior the purpose of educating the phy-
siecal side of Men's natures. The gymnasium classes, indoor games, an.l
athletics, swimming, out-door sports
and hikes, are all under careful supervision. For the youug man seeking
development and recreation there is
no place in the city better equipped
than the association. We do not aim
to turn out star athletes, or to der
velop sports, but we do endeuvor to
give thc average man an incentive for
higher  physical efficiency.
The work ol the department was
organized in the beginning of October
Two new features were introduced: a
high school class and a business men's
class. Both these classes proved successful. A young ladies class was organized and was much an oyed all
througb the year by about 40 ladies.

ln December an informal series of
volley-ball games was atranged for
the business men, and particularly
for those who could not attend the
regular gymnasium classes. When interest in the game bad arisen, a four
team ItagU • was formed, and a schedule of It games played, Voiu-y-lmil
ui its present form has come to rtuy.
In February the interim" Dates were

the young ladies who made it pos-

power to show our appreciation ln
some more concrete form.

Religious Work Department.
Gather together all the power that
human force can 'live you, it cannot
change your heart without the Power of Christ. In the rush and push
and anxiety of our every day affairs
wc too often are tempted to cut
short the time which we should devote to co-'imr.nio-i in prayer, wltil
our Heavenly Father, and the earnest
study and quiet meditation of bis
word. Everything is being done for
our bodies'and for our minds, let us
not forget thc sti'll more important
factor, that of developing our spiritual natures, so that we may be fully
equipped to render the highest possible service to our home, our CDun-
try and our God.

RUSSIA'S TRIZB.
Bear's  Paw  on   Austria's  Provinces
of i,ah,-ia and Bukoviua.
Dp in tho Carpathian mountains ln
eastern Aus.-ia, where rises the great
Vistula to llow into the Baltic and
tbe Dneister to flow into the Black
sea. is the key to the situation so far
as Russia is mainly concerned in this
struggle of the nations of Europe.
For the region to the east ol tho
Carpathians, the crown land provinces of Gallela and Bukovina, is tha
region that the Great Bear of the
North has his eye on as bis reward
for the war, the region toward which
bis paw ls even now reaching, which
when It is once within bis grasp, ba
will sweep into the realm of tha
Czar.
The veil of secrecy yet conceals the
condition of Austria's army, but a
dispatch from Rome emphasizes tha
statement tbat tbe forces of Francia
Joseph are demoralised and tbat
Russia met little resistance and
found an openly friendly populace
when it marched into Galicia.
And well might tbe people be
friendly to Russia. It ls a case again
ot blood being thicker than water,
of consanguinity deciding the question of affiliation. The 8.000,000
Inhabitants of Galicia are roles and
Ruthenlans, both friendly to RusBla.
The 800,000 people in Bukovina are
largely Ruthenlans. In the two provinces the bulk of tbe population belongs to the Greek Orthodox churoh,
a further bond of attachment to tbo
Cxar's land.
These are among the reasons why
thc Russians found such easy going
when they Invaded the country.
These are the reasons why the humblest peasant wai proud to loml the
Russiuns, to point 'oul the hidden
trenches of the Austrians. These
sre the reasons why secret signals
have been given to the Russlnns;
why a man. bearing a banner In a
religious procession, so moved the
staff that the burnished brass of Its
tip. glistening In the sun, flashed a
message to the watching Kussians.
This explains tho boy, whom an Austrian found high up In a tree, hello-
graphing a message to the invaders
with a bit of bright tin.
They used to Say the Carpathians
were impregnable. Ily their Invasion
through the Ussok pass th" Russians
have disproved this tradition. Northward Into Silesia their plans doubtless lead them, whence they hope to
Invade Germany and march on to
Berlin by the most direct route.
But the prize in all this for Russia
will l>e the two provinces of Austria
east of tbe Carpathian mountains,
lands that long have seemed a nat»
ural part of Russia by reason of the
racial division of the people.

would say that the word "manage
ment" would, at ull events, include
the question of regulation uud prohibition in connection with fishing
and hunting upon tbe reserves. Then,
also,  special    provisions have     been
' made in connection with the suhjoct
of of shooting and'fishing. Wc find In
another section that special provision
has heen made with regard to thu
subject of game in certain reserves in
inion parliament to make that regul-
certaln other provinces. Undoubtedly
if there was jurisdiction in the Dom-
ation, .there certainly would he, in my
opinion, jurisdiction to make similar
regulations with regard to reserves
in Uritish Columbia, and possibly, uh
Mr. <_;iylor suggests, it has not been
done so out of respect to tbe early
treaties with the Indians in the province. Then laws regarding the question of bringing in intoxicants on
the reserves have heen pnBHed, and as
1 understand no question has ever
been raised as to tho right of the
Dominion parli unent to pass those
laws, and one would say that 11 the
mutter of bringing in Intoxicants an
to reserves wns within the purview of
the Dominion parliament, that the
question of what, should he done with
the game and fish within the reserve's
would a fortiori (all within their jurisdiction.
Moreover, 1 think that the question
is in reality concluded by the case of
Madden vs. The Nelson & Fort Sheppard  Railway  company.  It  wub there
j contended that because the Dominion
did not choose to enact certain legislation regarding the fencing of railways which tho provincial legislature
thought was desirable, that the legislature could, in the absence of such
legislation on the pare of the Dominion, temporarily, at all events, jiass
such laws under its power over civic
jriirhts. rt was hrtd that it would be
impossible to maintain the authority
of the Dominion parliament if the leg-
j islature was to he permitted to enter
into the former's field of legislation.
I am unable to distinguish this ense
In principle from that ease. OjVidou^ly
the proper course for the local nuth-
orities is not to attempt to pussier;
islation affecting the hunting by Indians on their reserves or to apply
general legislation regarding game to
such Indians, hut tf necessary to apply to the proper law-making authority and ninke any representations that
they may see fit
