Construction . t Continuation of Automobile Road Will
Follow Survey—Commissioner of Parks Consults
Members of Board of Trade—Coif Links Fish for
Lakes, Zoo and Townsite in Park Suggested
That a survey party, now at Uuull,
would arrive in Kevelstoke within a
few days tor the purpose of locating
the extension of tho automobile road
to the summit of Mount Revelstoke,
and that on the completion of the
survey the work of construction
would he commenced, was the statement of .1. B, Harkin, commissioner
of Dominion parka, who arrived Ln
the city on Saturday and discussed
park matters with a deputation of
the board of trade on Saturday afternoon. A discussion of the hest methods for making the Revelstoke park
attractive and popi.'.ar took place
and Mr. Harken declared that the department at all times welcomed suggestions from all quarters.
In reply tei ■, suggestion from T-
Kilpatriok, president of the hoard
of trade, as to when it, might he Nex-
pecte 1 that the automobile road
would be completed, Mr. Harken
s.'ii.'. thai he would send tho survey
part; to Revelstoke from Banff immediately. It was essential that the
best possible road should be located.
Mistakes had heen made in the past.
in road building in other parks
through faulty locations. Tho party
would be in charge of a first class
man and . good road would he surveyed. This year the general parks
appropriation had heen cut in half,
but the appropriation for the Revelstoke park was ahout the same as
last year. The general public often
had the idea that parks were a
luxury. He believed that they were
a thoroughly sound commercial proposition, but a campaign of education as t.' th, value of the Dominion
parks Was needed. The parks were
owned, not bj one locality, but by
the who',,' of Canada.
The work in the construction of
the automobile road in the Kevelstoke park would proceed as soon as
the survey was completed, said Mr.
Harkin. He could not tell how much
of the road would be completed until
after the .:survey was made. He had
no idea ot what the cost would he.
A. E. Kincaid thought that it
would be advlaable to have the road
blazed out t.i the summit, if possible.
He believed that a goo.l road could
Ic obtained without much expense for
Mr. Harkin replied that the cost ol
survey ing the road \ would not come
out of the appropriation sit asidi^for
the Revelstoke park, but out of thc
general appropriation.
A. li. McCleneghan said thut i\
miles of the road had been surfaced.
After that the grade and turns he-
came better. Two or three miles were
ready for top dressing.
Mr. Harkin asked whether the
opinion was that It would bo better
to rough out all the road or complet.' part. It was better not to surface the road until it had winter
snow  upon it.
Mr. Kincaid advised completing the
road Brat and ipreadlng gravel afterwards.
Mr. Kilpatrick advised rough grading the eat,i.e ro.ul before surfacing.
Mr. McCleneghan thought that it
Would not cost much for finishing.
He believed that the road should he
gravelled,  if  possible.
Mayor Foots laid that tho road
Was used by campers. Ho advised
roughing out the rond first, oven ii it
could not he made lit for automobiles  immediately.
Mr. Harkin thought that one man
could do much In .keeping the road
Wa]   ia good repair.
On motion of A. .1.  Macdonell, seconded  by (I.   rf.   McCarter a  r<-■.>i:.
mendation     was       passed     advlfllng

mi need"i ii" believed thai oil
links were particularly attractive
nnd thought that, unique linki could
be secured iu the Kevelstoke park.
Tho revenue from tourists wus the
host kind of revenue for it took nothing out of the country. He thought
it important to work out an economic scheme. The government had secured the services of an expert on
theso lines, loaned hy the I'niversity
of Liverpool. He would examine into
the possibilities of tha Revelstoie
park. The aim should he to make it
not a suburban hut a national park.
He asked for suggestions.
Mr. McCarter said that stocking
the lakes in the park with fish hail
been suggested.
Mr. Harkin said that, tourists were
much attracted by Ashing. The government has established a fish hatch-
cry at Band for the purpose of
stocking the waters of all parks.
A zoo containing specimens of
birds and animals peculiar to the
locality was also suggested by Mr.
Mc( arter.
Mr. Harkin asked what, was the
opinion as to the advisability of establishing a townsite. A permanent
community had sprung up in connection with the Banff park,
i Mr. Kilpatrick said that eventually
a road would no doubt extend to the
glacier. He thought that a town site
would in time he much used, |especially   if golf links were laid  out. ,
lt was suggested that a hotel in
the park would be necessary. Mr.
Harkin said that in New Zealand the
government provided even tea rooms
in connection with the parks but the
policy of the Canadian government
had been to leave such matters so
far as possible to private enterprise.
The government provided shelter-
where necessary but it had not gone
into jthe hotel business and did not
think it. advisable tp do so.
Mr.   McCarter  pointed out th.-
cssity  for accommodation  if  tourists
were to take advantage of the   roads
and other attractions     provided      by
the  government.
Mr. Macdonell suggested resting
places along th'- road so that the
view could bc enjoyed in comfort.
Mr. Harkin said that the parks department welcomed suggestions at
any time. It was its object to make
the parks of natioral value.

Chalet at 10 o'clock, They spent the
night at the Chalet and at 4 o'clock
en Monday morning were enjoying
some exciting ski jumping and running.
They found conditions excellent for
1 sci '.l.iit hill fo:- jumping. The snow
at the cha'iet is still three feet deep
and carries a hard crust until noon. In
an impromtu competition on Monday
N'els Xelson cleared 81 feet, and "1
feet was the shortest jump made by
any of the party. The hill was naturally suitable and required no work to
make it tit for the tournament.
On Monday next it is expected that
at leasr 12 competitors will'take
part in the ski jumping and an equal
number in the ski races. Small piizes
will be competed for. One party of 1-
persons has planned to leave the city
for the summit on Saturday night
md others will leave on Sunday
morning. Mr. Halvorsen advises any
who intend to be rresent at the
tournament, to leave early on Monday morning as the sports will be
held before noon. He also recommends that snowshoes or skis be
taken as the upper part eof the trail
is covered with snow and makes difficult travelling after the sun li is

The discussion on Saturday between Mr. .J.H. Harkin, Commissioner of Dominion Parks, anl members
of the hoard of trade, was particularly interesting. It gave an Insight
into the ph.ns for the development of
the Revelstoke park which the
department has in        view,
and it required little Imagination, , ii
the part of those who listened to the
exchange ol views between the com-
nissioncr and the members of the
l.onrd of trade, t i p nture the development which the future has in
store, nnd to grasp, to some extent, the magnitude of the asset lo

The announcement made by Hon.
W. R. Ross, minister of lands, that
the Uritish admiralty is placing an
order with British Columbia timber
mills for 10',O0O,0O0 feet of timber will
give lunch satisfaction. The order in
itself is important, but it is especially significant because for the first
time a direct connection has been
established between the British Columbia timber industry and the Imperial government. Mr. Ross regards
Hi- transaction as of great importance in its bearing on the future of
tlie timber industry and expresses
himself as sanguine that an era of
great development and activity is
opening for the industry of
British  Columbia.
Since the outbreak of tha war, or-
ihi's have heen open to British Columbia lumbermen, to supply lumber
to private interests) in the Mother-
lain], as well as to the Imperial gov
eminent, but opportunity to bid successfully for the business was, denied
through inability to arrange for tonnage in which to handle the cargoes.
Through the elforts of the specia'l
trade representative recently appoint-
id by the Dominion government at
the solicitation of Mr. R. F. Green,
M.I'.. aided by the active co-operation of th" provincial ministers the
difficulty which handicapped the British Columbia industry has been removed and direct connection between
the Imperial government and the
1 rli ish Columbia timber producer has
luen established. The foreign middleman has been eliminated, and as the
demand for timber and lumber in
England and in Europe is likely to be
extremely keen as a result of the
war the tirst order of thc admiralty
is i>roie:,U> the forerunner of a succession of orders vhich wiil stimu-
...t,. enormously au industry which is
already showing unmistakable signs
i if revivnl,
and France, and murderers of innocent children and women, in short he
associates them with those whoso
names and actions stink in the nostrils of  decent people.
1 do not know who it. is in Malakwa
that twists the patriotic actions of Sir
Richard McBride and other members
und citizens to be a subject for his
abusive wit, nor can I concieve who
it can be that can bring degradation
on our peaceful valley by drawing a
1 arallel between local government o(-
Pcials and the leaders of the Huns,
but this 1 suy emphatically 'Let him
who prates of British fair play and
tho glories of its freedom and citizmi-
ship try to comprehend the meaning
of their elementary principles, and
if he cannot subdue his political passion during the present crisis, at
least, give vent to it decently, and
openly like a Britisher. Let him understand that the jieople of Craigellachie, Malakwu and Soisqua honor n
clean opponent, who scorns insinuations, and one who makes his charges
openly—and humorously too, if thai
be  his  way.'
Vie take matters in good part: gen-
i-ii!!y. Mr. Editor, we are amused
quietly when we read violent tirades
against Chinese labor and know that
the writer's dinner was being cooked
by a Chinaman,'when it was written,
but there is a limit in humour and
(or that reason I beg to trespass on
your valuable space to repudiate publicly such contributions as 'The
Prussian Guard.'

'Here I am in Englund again. I
was sniping and got sniped myself.'
The address waB a Red Cross hospital in Kent; and immediately we
went off to see him, this Canadian
who wrote, to us, a big, quiet, peace-
loving man whom we had last seen
in a little town of the Crow's Nest
Pass in British Columbia. On the
door of the hospital beside the bell-
push was a list of the foods wanted
lor its commissariat. We were laden
with books, books light aud decent;
and "ii entering we found that we
brought suir.cient reading matter to
let everybody bave one book in hand
if hr so desired. Our friend was up,
sitting in his cot in thut church hall
that had been turned into a hospital
ward. Hut most of the men were a-
bed, some sleep.ng in attitudes that
conveyed to the mind of one giving a
cursory glance, avoiding deliberate
'rubber-necking,' thq impression, that
they were taking all the bliss that
clean cots can offer. Their eyes were
closed, they breathed deep and heavy
not caring what happened round them
now. They were hero with nothing to
do but lie at peace and allow Nature,
aided by the doctors and nurses, to
heal them, always, they were devoted
to the nurses.
We tried to kecji our friend from
talking of what he had seen, of where
he had heen. But he would not be
turned aside. He assured us he had no
temperature; be wanted to talk. And
what he had seen we couid vaguely
guess when we heard that where he
had been laid aside hy a bullet was a
miie beyond Neuve Chapelle.
'Did you ever see a forest fire, 1
mean where a whole range is ou lire,
when you were in B.C.?' he asked.
'Well, you know how the flames rush
and how the cinders sunt up in the
air over it. It was something like that
when the shells burst, and they kept
i n and on like that. Th" big guns
mnt at it about as steady as machine guns. You can tell the French
guns by their steadiness—they go as
regular as Maxims.'
'Is it true that as artillerymen thc
■Their artillery.' Oh, quite true. It's
not a catchword. Their artillery is
wonderful, The.r artillery is IT.'
Ue thought he ni.ght get excited,
so suggested that lie needn't thin:
we had come to hear yarns about the
Flront, and tliat if he cared to hto
could tell us about it afterwards.
"It's all right,' he said. 'It's all
light. I've no temperature! I tell you
candidly I don't want to go ba.'k; it
wouldn't be truthful for ine to suy 1
wanted to go back.'
He nodded. Vie suggested again that
we needn't discuss it—he should just
rest; hut once nice he assured us
be was all right. My wile told him
1 was recently out of a nursing home,
but as I was getting lit ngain I had
thoughts of duty too.
'There are single men to go,' he
said, and with a bow left half of another sentence in air. 'Yes, duty, yes.

Instead of trying now to Bidc-track
him on to lulling themes 1 said: 'All
dead, I suppose?'
"Oh, yes! I mean these bodies that
bad been there since the original advance on 1'aris was broken and the.
Germans were pushed back. It is wonderful how the wounded are attended
to now, though sometimes it is unavoidable that men lie for hours without being carried to the rear. Everything is done that is possible. Tho
wounded are looked after ; but there
are heaps of dead from that driving
back that haven't been buried yet. No
lime! Bat smell!' he shoot his head.
'Europe strikes us sometimes as just

and then: 'The bullet meant for me.
hit my rifle two inches below my left
hand, so I kept my lingers. 1 think it
was in explosive bullet to jud;e by
what it did to that rille-barrel—but 1
wouldn't say that for certain,     iiu
almost sure. It burst tho bar.el. :..n
round, and passed up my forearm and
into my shoulder, lf it had been the
fraction of an inch lower it would
bave gone into my eye.'
He  leant forward.
'I'm vcry fortunate,' he said. 'All
the other boys that were shot sniping
got shot in the forehead. The Germans can shoot. Anybody who says
they can't, is talking rubbish. It
wasn't one out. of a hail of bullets
that got me; 1 was sniping, and a
German was sniping—that was how it
happened, and he aimed for me. He
was lying for ni". and he had only my
rifle barrel for a target; he got it!
That s shooting, you know, even
though we were fairly close I've lost
my outfit. When we are wounded it'B
supposed that another man helps UB
lad. I Know a man was told to gather my truck and lollow inc.' Ho
pursed his lips. 'Guess be must have
been shot.'
We changed the conversation then,
though really 1 thought afterwards it
did him good to talk. Ab he said, ho
had no temperature.
'We've got a hold of them, anyhow,' he announced definitely. 'They
know it now. We had Boine response
lor them at Neuve Chapelle. It's un
awfu'j pity—I suppose it can't be
helped sometimes—but boiiic of the
first men to rush their tronches after
the big bombardment got in too
quick. You see they got ahead of our
own artillery.'
We looked at him for the meaning
of that.
'Oh, nothing could live under the
I ombardment that we gave them
there. We had some surprises for
them all right. Why when our shells
were bursting their sand bags went
up whole, .soaring fifty feet, and men
too— everything. They were going to
wipe out the contemptible little army
B ith siege guns; they had concede
foundations all through the country
ready to get their big guns on. They
boasted about What they would do
with those big guns. But wc gave
them some surprise in big guns that
Right, It'B indescribable. They got
what they wanted to give us. Funny
thint's happened once at a trench I
was in before that big action. A voice
shouted out from opposite; "We're
Faxons here, If you don't tire, we
won't." We kept like that all day. At
night someone shouted: "We don't
want to shoot you fellows. If you
don't, we won't." "All right," nnd
we| didn't, nf course, that didn't last.
We relieved some other fellows in
trenches, very shallow, the bullets
coming right in; we had to dig, ourselves down.  I don't know  how     liny
stuck it. Anyone who says the Germans can't, shoot is not telling the
truth. We've got the grip now all the
same, and we ale nbsc'.lltely going to

He lhe lb,li'.'. Winn this is heaici np

He paused and gave me ,, picture
in a word or two of something 'ab
le.iut ilj Indescribable': a picture of a
village rushed, shells bursting, men
yards away from them knocked down,
.••ml a German officer flung against a
wall, fumbling upright against it for

If Thirty Is Safely Passed Many Serious Diseases Are Outgrown.

Anaemia, for Instance, ls practically j

had it by then you never will If you
have you will have outgrown it at
thirty or so. Acne, too—that sjiottl-

young people—Is certain to bave vanished by then.
Thirty, too. sees you out of tbe reach
of tbe gravest of all 'diseases--con

sign of lt by then In all probability
you never will, if you bave hitherto

Nelson's .

"May the great God Whom I worship grant io my country, for tbe
benefit of Kurope in general, a great
and glorious victory; and may no
misconduct in anyone tarnish It; and
may humanity after victory he the
predominant feature in the British

A Thrilling Moment.
Mr. G. A. Storey, R.A„ once told
of a family group he painted one
year for the Academy. The picture
■was accepted, and was hung "on the
line," and he arranged to escort tbe
family to the Academy in London to
see how it looked. They were all
grouped round the picture, each silently admiring his or her own portrait, when two other people drifted
up to have a look.
Mr. Storey was appalled to bear
one of the new-comers say to his
companion, "What an exceedingly
ugly-looking lot of people!"
The  Kaiser   Is   the   Most   Be-Titled
Man In thc World.
King Alfonso is th proud possessor of 42 independent and separate
titles. His list of suffixes would
form the major part of almost any
letter which he might write. Whatever his predecessors might have
been, whatever claims they made in
their dignities, he has preserved
them as trailers to his individual
name of Alfonso.
Quite amusing is his claim to territories which have long since passed
from under the Spanish domination.
For instance, he is, along toward the
last of his fictitious titles, "King of
the East Indies," "King of the West
Indies," "King of Gibraltar." "King
of India," and, with a bombast and
sweeping magnificence, "King of
Oceania." Such pretensions lend an
almost opera-bouffe flavor to the resonant tonus such as "King of Castile," "King of Arraiion," "King of
Navarre," and "King of Galieia."
To tbe Spanish don this pomji and
show appeals Wltl unction. Nor ls
it peculiar lo the Romance nations,
this worship of grandeur. The Emperor of Austria boasts 61 extra titles, and the Sultan of Turkey 82.
The Sultan has hy far the most
laughable list of names. He starts
out by being lliyh Prince and Lord
of Lords. Then he specifies In creat
detail . radically all of the States
and cities and even districts of the
Orient, and explaining after each of
the variot s names that he is ruler of
"all the forts, citadels, purlieus, and
neighborhood thereof." Nothing is
presumed to belong to anyone else.
A land may have never belonged to
Turkey, except in some transient raid
or invasion, but that matters not to
the Sultan; he adds it to his string,
calm am", indifferent to the progress
of other nations. He loves to proclaim his religious prominence.
"Head of the Faithful.," "Supreme
Lord of AU the Followers of the
Prophet," "Direct and Only Lieutenant on Earth of Mohammed" are
some of his most extravagant
phases. His more nearly valid title
of "King of Jerusalem" ls also claimed by his more civilized brother
The Kaiser with his love of pub-
licity, has 72 names. Most of the
States of Germany are included ln
the list of the Prussian King, and
have been ever since tho union of the
King George of England has a
very modest outlay in comparison. It
merely reads: "George V. by the
grace of God of the United Kingdam
of Grea Britain and Ireland and of
the British Dominions Beyond the
Seas, King, Defender of the Faith,
Emperor of India." Some of the
lesser nobles in Britain boast of long
lists, the Duke of Argyll leading with
27 titles.
Caustic  Wit.
A well-known doctor who dabbles
In literature recently published a
poem. Shortly after its appearance
he was conversing with a lady celebrated for her wit.
"Well, doctor," she remarked, "so
I understand you have taken to
writing verse."
"Oh, merely to kill time."
"Indeed! Have you disposed of
all vour other patients?" — London
Cured of Discontent.
"I never compli ined," once said
Sa'di, the poet, "of my condition bnt
on a single occasion, when my feel
were bare and I had no money to buy
shoes, but I saw a man without feet
and became instantly contented with
my lot."
Being asked from whom he learned his philosophy. Sa'di replied,
"From '.be blind, because they never
advance a step unt'l they have tried
the ground."
"They asked me," Sa'di writes ln
the Gulistan, " Of whom didst thou
learn manners?' I replied: 'From the
unmannerly. Whatever I saw them
do which I disapproved of, that I abstained from doing.' "
Governorship of Ontario Will Cost Sii
Times the Salary This Vear.
The new Lieutenant-Governor of
Ontario and his family have now
taken up their residence in the temporary Government House In Toronto. About next summer they will
move into the new Government
House-—the palace (for it is little
less) in Chorley Park. Colonel Hendrie is known to be wealthy and his
wii,.' to be a charming society leader.
And the structure in Chorley Park is
large enough for the exercise of all
Ua hospitality that even the most
hospitably-inclined of lieutenant-governors and their wives can possible
wish to dispense.
What will it eost to keep up the
new Government House? Well, not
■ ■Mn ihe Lieutenant-Governor himself can an: wer that question as yet.
Ib- will have a better Idea of the
answer in a year or two's time. But
il is certain that it will cost a good
deal more than It did the old one on
King ami Simcoe streets. And yet
iii- expense of keeping up that house
waa by no means met by the official
salary of the Lieutenant-Governor,
v • iri. :.-  si o.diiii a year.
"I should think," said one well
viiseil in Toronto society and its
ways, and in the cost ol mixing in it,
"that ii must have cost the late
'.: 'titenant-Governor at least $5u,-
mm or so. And in the new mansion
ihe new Lieutenant-Governor will
probably find that he has to spend
$65,000 a year at a low estimate."
1'h" otlicial entertainments given
by the Lieutenant-Governor lia^ve always eo, [prised, ever since ihere was
such a functionary in Ontario, three
or four official dinners, when the
Legislature is in session, a couple ol
big balls, and several small dances,
besides some "at-homes." That bas
always been something like the annual program. And these official entertainments are very expensive. For
champagne is expected (and not in
vain) at a Lieutenant-Governor's
board. And you cannot get much ol
a champagne under $3.50 a bottle,
and a bottle, alack! does not hold
more than six not very large glasses.
Of recent years the expense attaching to the Lieutenant-Governorship
has gone up for two reasons. First,
royalty comes a good deal to Govern,
ment House. And, though royalty's
personal tastes may be simple in the
extreme, this cannot be assumed as
a matter of course. Provision must
be made as though they were not,
Secondly, automobiles are coming into favor as equipages for the Government House party. And automobiles
ar more expensive than carriages
to keep up. In the new House, of
course, the staff of servants will have
to be very considerably larger.
Some forty years or so ago the stafl
of indoor servants (exclusive of those
employed in tbe stables and garden)
used to consist of a butler, three
footmen, a French cook and his wife,
and seven or eight women servants.
In addition, there were the two
A.D.CYs, whose stipends, however,
are paid by the Provincial Government, and a secretary.
The present Lieutenant-Governor
and his two immediate predecessors
—Sir John Gibson and Sir W. Mortimer-Clark—are all known to be rich
men. But, as a matter of fact, all of
Ontario's Lieutenant-Governors have
been fairly rich men, w h tbe exemption, perhaps, of the Hon. John
Beverley Robinson, who was com'
paratively poor, but whose wife was
noted for her grace as a hostess.
Her Bargain.

The Real Treasure.
The real treasure- i.i that laid up by

Through charity and   piety, temperance and  self control.
The treasure thus hid Is secure and

When a Montreal health inspector
visited the home of Daniel O'Connell,
nt Laval avenue, in the commercial
Canadian metropolis, Daniel apparently felt rising within him the same
intolerant hatred of Sassenach-made
laws which earned for his great
ik.- the proud title of "the
Irish Emancipator." Daniel disputed
ihe- Inspector's right to enter, and the
otficial thereupon produced his offl-
Cial  badg'-.
"What's that thing?" asked Daniel.
"This badge entitles ine to enter
any place I chose," replied the ml-
crobe-chaser with dignity.
"Any place at all?" queried Daniel
with implied doubt in his tones.
Then you can go to hell with lt and
try it there," was Daniel's unexpected
suggestion, as he slammed his door

As it is not always known how much
vitality is possessed by various grades of seed when sowing, it is often
sown too thick. Vegetables such us
the onion, beet, lettuce, carrot and
radish are often thinned liy using the
largest ones first, and thus ,giving the
remaining plants more room in which
to thrive. This is in many ways a
good policy, but where the supply is
greater than the demand, or if it is
desirable to permit the remaining
cnes to mature rapidly, thinning will
pay as well  as weeding.
Oftentimes, after the proper cultivation, weeding and thinning bas been
done, the leaf crops, especially, an

weeks and at the rate of l'5fl to 200
pounds per acre, or one pound 1"

the plants, howevor, it will bum
them, and for tbis reason it. is practl
