they resolved that when the road
■was completed they would, if possible, return to Revelstoke to make
the journey to thc 'summit, They afterwards assured Iriends who wero
travelling with them but who spent
the night at Sicamous instead of
Revelstoke, that they had missed tho
greatest scenic attraction of the tour
from Cincinnati to the coast.
On their return Irom the automobile triji the party dined together at
the Revelstoke hotel, and as a mark
of appreciation of the wonderful
scenery and of the good offices of tho
fellow traveller who had advised tho
stay at Revelstoke, and h.id escorted
them up the mountain, they presented to him a beautifully chased nold
fountain pen. Tbe members of tho

TRAFALGAR DAY
"England     expects that every man
will   do  his  duty,"   the   signal    Hown
in October 21, over a century     ago,
by   Britain's  greatest  naval  h,ro, has
todaj   no  less significance than     on
the eve of the battle which established the supremacy of the Uritish fleet.
a  supremacy which has   remained unchallenged  until  now.    Then,  aB   now,
Britain faced a vital crisis in Inr history.   Then,  as now,  the call  ol  duty    was not unanswered,   Then    the
British     li 'i't  shattered the combined
naval forces of France and Spain and
today only the opportunity to   meet
its foes in open battle is required to
enable it  to  win a  victory  over   the
combined forces of its foes, more col
ossal  nut  not more heroic than that
achieved   by  Nelson  in  Trafalgar  bay.
The  celebration  tomorrow  ol Trafalgar  day,  the  anniversary  of     the
victory  which delivered   England from
tin- menace of invasion, will this year
lave an added  interest and a greater
inspiration,     The glorious traditions

\ i the Canadian National Exhibition which opened on August 28 at
Toronto there was shown, by direction of the Hon. the Minister of
Lands, a very complete and extensive
display of British Columbia lorest
products in charge of a member of
thc technical stafl eif tbe Forest
hranch.
The object eit tbo exhibit was to
convey to the "astern publio an idea
.ef the great variety •», western woods
and the uses to winch they can pro-
fltably Mn put in tbe east. The beau-
ty eef British Columbia panelling,
< ' and Interior finish material
wan, therefore, specially featured.
ii'. \ Douglas Br timbers were also
shown, and tlm fart was emphasised
that douglns fir is not only equal
but is supertoi to long-leal pine, its
only competitor ns a structural material, Ix'rnnRp it eives somewhat
greater Btrength combined with    20
per cent. lesB weight, and is much
freer from sap. This latter point is
important on account of thc tendency of sappy southern pine to dry
lot. Proof of the durability of Uritish Columbia red cedar j)oIes were
■shown by sections of poles still sound
which bave been in use near Vancouver for over a quarter of a century,
in fact ever since the completion of
the Canadian I'acitic railway. The
nine principle grades of British Col-
I'mbia shingles were shown in tho
form of sections of roofs.
Tha effectiveness of the exhibit was
beyond question, and drew attention,
once more to the need ol continuous
missionary work in the east on be--
half ol the lorest products ol British
Columbia. A canvass of the leading
buyers, as well as the remarks made
by thc thousands of people who inspected thc display, revealed a general surprise at the obvious superiority
of douglas fir over southern pine in
beauty of nppenrance. Paint manufacturers were impressed with thc re-
mnrkable wny in which this wood
sets off thp various Istains and varnishes, and were anxious to obtain
fir samples for displaying their products. The showing of B. C. doors
nnd of the thicker varieties of shin*
gles was also very effective.

Sir John French has issued an order expressing his appreciation of
the valuable work done by all ranks
of the Royal Flying Corps in the 'recent battle in France which began in
extremely adverse weather conditions
and compelled flying at very low altitude under heavy tire. He especially thanks the pilots and observers' of
aircraft for their plucky work in cooperation with the artillery and in
photographing and making bomb attacks on the railways, which, ho
says, was of great value in interrupting German communications.

conferred upon him by the University
of Toronto, on Sept. 2'.Uh, in his address to the large audience present
at the convocation said. 'I have little confidence in although much sympathy with all the schemes that are

no peace and no possibility of peace

authors of this awful war are

adversaries and thc whole world can
see thnt hereafter they will obey the
rule of good faith, the rule ol keeping contracts, the rule thnt when
they make a treaty they shall stand
by it whether it is to their interest
or not.''

'I still,' she «dds, 'feel the Bame
about Shakespeare's royalties.'
The Tzar as c Man.
IiV spite ol Shakespeare's—and her
own—view of monarchs, the Infanta's
enthusiasm for the Tzar of Russia1 as
a man is unbounded. 'He has moro
human tenderness,' she declares 'than
I ever saw in,any other man.' She
says, further:
"It is his tenderness that distinguishes him from most of the sovereigns I know. His affection Ior his
mother, his devotion to his wile and
children, are the outcome of this
quality, and its exercise is not confined to his domestic life. I have
heard him speak on more than ono
occasion with the utmost feeling of
persons who had been condemned to
exile in Siberia. It was perfectly
clear' to mc from the way in which
he spoke of them that had he followed the dictates of his own heart,
he would have cancelled the sentences
and pardoned , the offenders. I could
see that the thought of their suflcr-
ings made him suffer himself, and
that it was only a stern sense of
duty that made him acquiesce in penalties he regretted.
As for the Kaiser, the Infanta was
especially struck by his religiosity as
a monarch. And, next to this, by his
love of Berlin .vhich he regards in
the light of a daughter. One morning, while she was staying at the
Schloss, she relates, the Kaiser came
into her room and asked her to come
out with him, as he wished to show
her something interesting:
I put my hat on at once, artd we
went down to a carriage which was
waiting and drove away. I was wondering what surprise the Kaiser had
in stores for me.
•Look!' be cried suddenly, 'look at
the streets! There have been torrents of rain and the weather only
cleared up a few minutes ago, hut do
you see that there is not a speck of
mud on the road?
It was true. The streets were sur-
1 risingly arrd absolutely clean.
'You appear,to dry as well)as to
sweep them,' I said.
'I have an army bt road-sweepers,'
he said. 'Here they arc,' and he
pointed to a group of men energetically plying their ibrooms. 'I wanted
you to see how clean 1 keep Berlin.'
'And is that all you have brought
me out to see?' I said teasingly.
'Yes, rail,' he said, and we both
laughed.
The Infanta is willing to bear with
the strict formalities of the Kaiser's
court, but she objects when lesser
princ?lings imitate that strictness.
'1 once,' she complains, 'had such a
sovereign send an riide to order me
to put down my parasol in a royal
procession for no other reason excejit
to exercise a petty authority.' She
refused.
Her     first     impression of England
was unfavorable.   She 'thought     the      Alfred    Cliffe hanged himself in     a

DO NOT LAPSE  YOUR  POLICY.
(By Henry C. Lippincott,    in the
'Insurance Independent.
There are commodities that can be
bought in thc open market almost
any time and at substantially the
same price, but life insurance is not
one of them. Age determines tho
price, nnd, of course, men do not
grow younger.
Men who drop their insurance usually expect to take it on again at
their convenience. Sometimes they
can; sometimes they can't. But they
can never replace it at the same rates; so as a purely business proposition tbey make a mistake. The man
who,     on     second  application,  finds
life insurance, comes to a realization
of the fact that he has made some-
thing more than a business mistake.
Many lapses in policies grow out
of emergencies which occur in life,
forcing a man to curtail his expend-
Itures to meet his income. Better
had the policyholder find that he can
do without a vacation this year or
without the automobile he is financing than to give up his policy and
take a chance upon taking out another at some future date. A man
should take the same pride in regu-
lating his finances and making cur-
lent expenses conform to current in-
Cieir.es as lie does in all other matters
that enter into his efficiency. And,
above all he should guard zealously
the. protection he has provided for
1 is home and family, eliminating it
from his regular expense account only when it is a case of absolute and
dire necessity. But he should then
be sure that it is really a necessity
to give up what he may not be able
t.i airaln obtain. When a man takes
out a policy of life insurance, whether it be for >ne thousand or one
hundred thousand, he has added thnt
much,to his estate, establishing to
that extent, at least, his worth to
his family and to the community. It
represents just so much headway. To
drop that Policy is to tre, backwards
—to lose ground. Prop-re'S—the ambition to weisrh well in the scales
with other men—is nn innate desiro
with us all: and if our lives are welt
r°eulated we will not permit ourselves t.i lose erotind if we can h"lp it.
Once you start a policy never lapse
it.

REMINISCENCES OF A PRINCESS
(The    'Daily     News and Leader,'

The Infanta Eulalia of Spain whose
volume of reminiscences, 'Court Life
from Within' has;been recently published, is, as everybody knows,
a rebel against royalty. Not that sho
is intolerant ol royalty in other people; King Edward, the Tzar, and the
Kaiser are all the subjects ot her appreciation. But she refuses to be a
loyal personage herself in more than
name. 'Peojile tell me,' she observes,
'that princesses are stupid. I wonder
that we are not all idiots. During
my life iu Madrid almost my only
public duty was to help lay corner
stones. I helped lay enough to pave
I the city.'
She depicts,the royal life as an intolerable cage in which one is, as it
were, looked alter by a keeper until
one is married. And even on the
throne royalty is still with its want
of freedom. 'I have seen,', she writes
'a king, talking even with his moth- I
er, got himsell       unexpect
edly into his royal manner and
speech as stiffly as if he were giving
bis mind te some li wer breed of human being.' The Infanta's prejioses-
sions mi the subject ol royalty however,   are   more   than   powerful,      She

at first that she must he, sitting

love of punctuality was rather startling:
I Stayed with him and Queen Alexandra at Sandringham. One of tho

Power, by reason ol its being scattered and spent upon other subjects
besides the right one. When you
went out into a quiet room you accomplished your work without great
effort. Yoiir mind was no better in
the quiet room than it was in the
noisy one, and you did not expend
any more energy, probably uot so
much. The reason was simply that
you economised and utilized your
mental energy, whereas, under the
distractijns of the crowded room, it
was scattered, dissipated, or wasted.
The individual who has not the
anchorage which religion ought to
give, who does not see things in
their larger relations, as a religiouB
person ought to see them, who does
not have a sense of thc larger values,
which a religious person ought to
bave, is like the. person in a crowded
room full of distractions. He does
not realize what things are really
worth while, therefore he allows trivial things to occupy his attention;
be does not see'the larger aspects of
lite, therefore the petty things worry
him; he Joes not leel his feet plajntcd
upon the larger truths, therefore he
is blown about by conflicting winds of
economic, social and religious doctrine.
A sound religion gives him a sense
of quiet, of poise and balance; it enables him to enter the quiet room
where problems become simple and
lessons' easy. 'The peace ol God
which passeth all understanding' is
the tirst condition of the highest economy of human energy and tho
most productive life. To the individual who has thus freed himsell from
distraction, the yoke of service is
easy and the burden of the productive life is light.

SPIRIT OF WEST IS j
HOPEFUL AND BUOYANT
if He Came to Canada Would Settle in West
Says British Labor Member
In the course of an article on Canadian impressions G. N. Barnes, M.
P., who was in Revelstove some
weeks ago engaging munition workers
has the following to say about Canada:
"There is no feeling of doubt in
Canada as to the result of the war
in a military sense," says Mr. Barnes. "That is taken for granted. The
Canadian does not argue about it because although he is not versed in
military lore, he knows the issues at
stake and has an abiding faith in
the ability of the allies, to carry
those issues to a triumphant conclusion.
Canadians are even looking forward
I eyond the victory and to thc effect
of the war on Canada a future. Tbey
are hoping and believing that Canada in the days to come will become
better known to the English people,
and especially to the English soldier.
A quite common expr ssi n in the
west Ms thai soldier settlers will
come out to Canada after the war is
over, because they will uot take
lindly again to otliee or factory work
alter the year or t^e. of life in tho
open air. And 'farther, it ia expected
that the soldier, having heard of
Canada while in France or Flanders,
will want  to See ir  al   first  hand.
V, ireover, they can see that Americans from the States are getting to
know Canada better as the result of
the war. The American tourist, shut
• ut froi ■ Europe this year, is overrunning the Canadian Rockies and
the Pacific coast.
The Canadian does not object. On
the contrary he welcomes them. The
money brought in this year by the
tourist has, in fact, been timely and
helpful. But be would extend even a
heartier welcome to Ins own kith ane)
kin from home. And so he hopes and
believes that. among other tilings
winch may emerge fr.eiii tbe din of
battle, there may be a better know-
ledge ol Canada and closer Intimacy
witb i inadians , n the part ol the
1    e.f the l'nited Kingdom,
I believe he is quite right In his de-
- :    i88i iCiation and sincere in  ins wish  to contribute to it.
The  war  i. list  foster a     feeling     of
comi shi]   and mutual pride.
We a! bi me may lose Bome of our
Insularity, and may want to know
something more "f theese regions beyond the s.'as. s.i far away in a geo-
graphical sense, but which have been
brought see close to us by sentiment
end nc.- feeling.
Hut. if th" feeling of gi odwiU     to
the soldiers on the part of Canadians
.- to fructify, the ejiound should flrst
be cleared by the powers that be.   It
would Me a crying shame and scandal
•. the men should go to Canada only
*o fall  victims to the money   lender
•i  tie   employment bureau, or   other
•I th'- alluring agencies with    which
the land abounds.   Their should     be
some fair chance of their earning    a
living when they get there.
And fortunately thc means are at
hand, There are t! lusanda of acres
if land, for Insta ice, i'i British Columbia lying Idle,, which are in the
i  issesslon of  the government..   This
md is at present of little use because i/ his not been cleared. The
clearing of these roots and stumps ie
a big undertaking, lt seems to me
that it might well be undertaken by
government, home and colonial, on
some basis t.   be agreed upon.
The same conditions exist in some
parts dl Ontario, except that the
wood is but small und the cost of
clearunce Would be less. There are
there gri it area still undeveloped and
covered only by scrub. Why not clear
■ n a luree scale?
There are great areas ol land not
under cultivation simply for lack of

There Is ample precedent for spend-

scheme ol docks at Prince Hujiert

themselves.   I    vlsite i    one of    the
camps close to the areas of uncleared land and was struck with the
stupidity and wastefulness of the arrangement. Here were hundreds of
men in the prime of lite, nearly all
of whom had been accustomed to
manual labor, and there was the
work awaiting close by;, yet half of
tbem were at mid-day lying a-bed,
others were playing cards, aud some
loading magazines. It would be better for themselves and better for tbe
community to put them to some uselul work.
But now, in conclusion and when
all is said of its drawbacks, t an ida
still offers many attractions to the
man whose spirit is in revolt against
old world caste and restriction.
There is a spirit of equality in Canada which is almost aggressive m
its manifestations und which everybody takes as a matter of course.
The poor man has not accepted poverty as a condition of his being and
is not expected to be servile because
be is poor. He looks the world in
the face and mixes more freely with
the well-to-do than is customary in
Etagland.
There is, in short, an atmosphere
of equality and an absence of snob-
bishness which is satisfying to tho
soul of the man who responds to the
spirit of freedom. Then the beauties
and some of the products of nature,
ure free to all. The dog is not kept
for the trespasser, the lakes and hills
are open to all, there are no forbid-
ding looking walls or fences by the
roadside, and if a man is hard pressed in a country district he can have
fish or came for the getting.
Finally, there is the undetinable,
but none the less real, lure of the
west whicli men follow as water re-
sjionds to the law of gravity. Of
course wages are higher in tbe west,
In illustration ..! which 1 may say'
that the aereed rate for engineers is
4S cents an hour as compared with
I .". in  th i east irn cities.
But it is not that altogether which
takes men west. I don't know what
it is. Perhaps it is a combination of
many thincs, in addition to higher
wages—such as the vast lakes and
mountains, the balmy air. thc openness of the countryside and the
terms of equality upon which men
meet; but, whatever the cans", or
causes, there is a something in Western Canada which is hopeful and
buoyant even in bad times. If I
were to eo to Canada it is in the
west thnt T should pitch my tent.

ut stealing firearms from a \ ernon
hardware store, but those in authority consider that something more
desperate than a mere gun thelt was
planned.
The arrest of tbe men, whose names are A. King, Vi. Stonestreet and
1-. Annis, followed the disappearance
e>f live automatic revolvers from the
! ardware store of A. Rogers.
Une of the clerks in the store states that the three men came in on
Tuesday night and that one of them
asked to look at the automatics and
carbine. After ezan inatlon the pr s-
j.ectlve customer asked the clerk to
lay aside the weapons to be called for
after pay day.
That nigbt the store was entered
and     the articles taken, '.but the rob-
ir. :n their haste left tbeir .- ■
canes behind, which were so marked
as tee give a clue to the police, who
traced the men to the 47th lines and
recovered all of thc stolen firearms in
their kit bau-s.
Before Magistrate Heggle i'i the

morning the men were committed for
trial et tin. next assizes. All of the
rrtsoners hail Irom Vancouver. Pt no-

have mistaken him for a rock.

Thirteen Mills Running
in Vernon district
Some interesting matters are touched upon in a report recently submitted to the Hon. the Minister of
Lands Irom the Veruou district. Tbe
summer has been abnormally wet but
the early spring, light suowtall and
dry spring made a bad hazard uutil
tbe middle ol May, when until the
tnd of July heavy rains safeguarded
the situation. With the advent iu
August of dry weather, the vegetation rapidly became parched, and tires started to give trouble; ,but these
conditions improved as the [lights became cooler, and early in September
rain put an end to all danger. Seventy-two outbreaks of tire during the
season, with but slight loss, are recorded, and mention i> made of the
increasing interest shown by the public in forest protection. .Much clearing was done ,by settler* under, permit, the season proving very favorable. The opinion is expressed that
the lumber industry, In view of the
Conditions, has shown wonderful activity. Thirteen mills have been running fairly regularly; those in the
Okagagan supplying boxes and cr;it<s
for the Iruit trade, as a result of
which employment has been given,
nnd the machinery kept going. Approximately three hundred men have
been employed at the mills, and a
somewhat smaller number in logging
operations. Orders for several million feet of fir for snowsheds on the
Coquihalla branch of the Kettle valley railway have been given.
The whole dlstrlcl has benefitted by
thc operation of the Kettle Valley
railway, and will do so to a far
irreater extent as soon ns the Coquihalla section is Connected up and opened, completion of which should be
made by November.

everywhere. In previous years the
only practical value of the; plant waa
in feeding the seeds to birds, but
this year the seeds are used to make
an oil which is equal to the- best ol-_
ive oil for conking purposes.
A. writer is also jioiuting to a further possibility of the plajit. The oilcake, left after making oil, he says,
is an excellent feed for animals,
whereas the seeds themselves can be
toasted and used as a substitute' for
toffee. The young shoots and undeveloped leaves can algo be cooked
and eaten as a palatable substitute
for spinach.
in Belgium, too, the Germans are
turning their thoughts towards discovering ,new uses for old and familiar plants. An agricultural weekly,

At 7.30 o'clock last Thursday
morning, Fred Roinlmrdt mistook
John  Halproy  for  a   deer  and      shot
him     with a 32.40 expansive bullet,
near Grand Forks. The bullet entered the right shoulder and lung and
lodged in the chest. The Spokane
train was flagged in the woods and
waited twenty minutes until thc injured man was lifted on board. He
was rushed to the Grand Forks hos-
pital, where Dr. Truas operated at.
once.
Mr. Halproy is a well known store-
kecjier ol Curlew, near where the accident happened, and also of Grand
Forks.
It. is a curious coincidence thai only the other day two ladies were out
shooting near Republic, not far from
where the nhove accident happened,
when one of them slipped, accidentally discharged her gun and killed her
companion.
