necessity of convening a provincial
Liberal convention as the only hope
ol extricating the party from the
morass in which it is now struggling.
He believes that the effect of the convention would be "to wipe off tbe

"to elect a permanent leader of the
party so tbat the public may know
who will be the Liberal premier when
we attain power" nnd also to tuke

To that idea Sir Robert Borden has

The Liberal party at present is

he admits that Mr. H.C. Brewster, the

WOMEN  OF  NIGERIA.
Their Lips Are Plugged With Wooden
Disks So They Can't Eat Dog.
Tlio women of northern Nigeria are
not prepossessing unci in their scanty
attire, with tails of grass hanging from
ttieir girdles, are sometimes really grotesque.
To udd further to their beauty both
the upper nnd lower lips of these women nre pierced in order to admit a flat;
round disk of wood called the lichiak,
which Is usually about the size of a
hulf dollar. The lips of the little girls
are pierced when they are seven or
eight years of uge, and a piece of
wood inserted and worn for a time until a larger one takes its place, Uie
opening thus being gradually enlarged
until u full sized tlehiak can be carried
without discomfort The object of this
singularly discomforting adornment ls
to prevent the women from eating
dogs, which nre considered the greatest
delicacy by tho men of the tribes.
Both sexes decorate their bodies with
regular designs. The chests and backs
of the little girls aro scarified at a
very early nge. When they arrive at
marriageable uge the girls undergo a
further ordeal, for two sets of parallel
lines aro cut both on tbe chest and the
back, and as soon as possible after
marriage the head Hues are made.
These consist of a number of short cuts
across the forehead, extending from ear
to ear, nnd thirteen long, slanting lines
are cut on each cheek from ear to chin.

COACHES AND AUTOCARS.
How the Twentieth Century Is Linked
With the Eighteenth.
The nineteenth century bas seen the
passing of the democracy of travel
With the twentieth has come a return
to thc aristocratic methods of the
eighteenth century, when a gentleman,
lf be wished to tour tlie continent, did
so in tils own much. Friends in the
country inviting a lady of quality to
visit them wroto asking where horses
should meet her. She naturally came
In her own carriage. When Miss Edge-
worth's heroine Helen wished to pay
her debts her principal asset was her
traveling chaise.
ln tho youth of our own grandfathers tlie truly great, enshrined ln au
aristocratic vehicle, refused to descend
from lt even when on shipboard. The
opera singer Grlsl crossed the channel
ln her own conch, while ber dutiful
husband stood on deck at the coach
window holding the harmless necessary basin. The individual vehicle was
a hall mark of distinction.
There has been un intewal when people were content to herd together In
railway trains, but lt has already passed away. We have returned to the
private, the special, the personal; ln a
word, we have gone back to the eight>
■tenth century. Now, as then, a genUe-
man travels In his own conveyance.—

Cowboys.
A cowboy, to our modern minds,
means a man who herds cattle. Vet
the original "cowboys," instead of
herding cattle, stole them. The name
seems first to have been applied to a
band of horsemen, part soldiers and
part bandits, who fought on tie British side during the Revolution. Westchester county, N. Y., was the scene of
their operations, and the most of them
were Tories. Because they drove away
many cuttle on ethelr raids they were
called cowboys. Opposed to the cowboys In tbeir raids througb the section
of New Vork which lay between the
British and American  lines  were  the
Britain Has a Host of Notables Serving With the Colors.
More than 100 members of the
British House of ('ominous have gone
to the front cr have volunteered.
Many relatives of members of the
Government have also joined the
colors. The children of some of the
Ministers are too young for service;
other Ministers are not married oi
have few relatives.
The Prime Minister has a nephew
on a battleship, Lord Crowe a son-in-
law, Mr. Lloyd George's second son il
in the Territorials, Mr. Churchill's
brother has joined. Major Guest, one
of the Whips, has joined his regiment; Mr, Masterman's brother, Captain Musterman, who was in the
South African war, was wounded ln
the Balkan war, and has trained enthusiastic hands of Boy Scouts, lint
volunteered for the front. Mr, Mas-
teriuan has a nephew in the service;
Sir Kdward Grey has also a nephew,
and Mr. McKinnon Wood a son undei
the Hag. A son of Dr. Macnamara,
Financial Secretary to the Admiralty
—himself a soldier's son—has applied to be enrolled.
These mimes do not hy any means
exhaust the list of relatives of the
members of the Government who
have joined Ihe forces or volunteered.
Colonel Seely, a former Ministei
of War, lias joined the Expeditionary Force, and the only son of another ex-Minister (Lord Heading)
the Hon. Gerald Isaacs, is with the
Inns of Court Officers' Training
Corps. Lord Heading's brother, Mr,
Godfrey Isaacs, has two sons; the
younger, who is 18, Is with the Honorable Artillery Company, and haE
volunteered for the front. He is an
expert swordsman, and had a successful encounter with a German
student    last    year.
A Temperance Admiral.
There is no stronger advocate of
temperance than Admiral Sir George
Oallaghan, second in command of the
British fleet. He has stated that it
has been proved that shooting carried
out before grog had been issued was
SO per cent, better than that done
after. "Therefore," he added, "captains always found some excuse for
taking their ships to sea a full day
before carrying out one of the annual
tests, while Ihey also took rare to
hold on to the grog issue until the
evening."
To the public the name of Admiral
Oallaghan is not very familiar, but
in the service be is known as one of
the lini st seamen we have possessed
since the days of Nelson.
He entered the navy at the age of
thirteen, became a lieutenant when
he was twenty-three, and a commander at hirty-five. He greatly distinguished himself as commander of the
Naval Brigade of the Allied Forces
during the Boxer Rising of 1900,
and succeeded to the chief command
of the fleet on the retirement of Sir
France Bridgeman not long ago. He
has now retired In favor of Admiral
Sir John Jellicoe.
Goose and Naval Victories.
The goose has associations witb
one of the most Important of British
naval victories, for Queen Elizabeth
is said to have been eating her
Michaelmas goose when she heard of
the defeat of the Spanish Armada.
Long before Elizabeth's time this
bird was the recognized Michaelmas
ilirh. In the lease of a Herefordshire
farm granted in 1471 the tenant un-
dertakes to furnish "one goose fit
for the dinner of the Lord of the
Manor on the feast of St. Michael."
Even when living in Venice Byron
used to hunker after goose at
Imas. Countess Guiccioli relates that one year he bought a

pared for the feast. "He fed it every

fell on stern times, lf one may believe
that the spirit of family life was ac-

humorous intent tbat hw children
"loved her as sinners 'iread death."
There ls little doubt that parental "control at that date was ss rigorous ss

GOOD PROSPECT
Tide of Travel Started Coast-
ward—Many Tourists Win
Visit Kevelstoke
our i t y and its surroundings through
om ' ic lurge centres ol population in
eastern Canada und the United States
■Some work along this line has already been commenced by our industrial commissioner and the board of
trade, but it is hoped that the wort
will be further extondeed, for the reason that this is an opportunity that
will not rresent itself again for som;.
years to come.
AN INGENIOUS COOLIE.
Although the regular tourist sua-
--son.has not yet commenced in earnest, the tide of tratiic wuku ih expected to assume large proportions
this summer has alreudy set towards
the coast. The outlook in the opinion
•of H. W. Brodie, general passenger
agent for the Canadian Pacilic ruil-
way, lookB most promising. The
■traffic otticiul gives some interesting
particulars ol the business already
booked in the following statement
prepared for publication;
"Pet a period extending over a
year ull the forces of the company
liave been busily engaged in wonting
up traffic to and from the Pi.numa-
Pacific exposition, with the object oi
bringing, as many passengers aB possible through the coast cities ot Canada, aud inducing as many people as
possible to step at the vurious resorts along the line of the railway.
The traffic is a'.ready moving and for
the past three v;ee...s we have noticed
• a steadily increasing movement of
Jjusin ss via our steamships and
trains to and through Vancouver. The
movement is also fceingi felt at our
various hotels.
"Without going into"any detailed
particulars, I might mention that up
• to the present time we have contracted for no lewer than eighteen
special trains from Vancouver east,
and nine special trains west. In addition arrangements have been made
lor some 30 odd special parties, occupying one, two or three     cars     in
• each direction. These people will be
moving on regular trains, and the
butinesa indications point to a further large increase of special trains
and special car parties.
"Among the special car parties may
be noted: Thc governor of New Jersey
and party of friends; the American
Library association; the Colonial
Family Parties from New Englafld; a
r.umber of Gillespie and Kings, ort
tours from the KuBtern States; the
National Association of Stationers
-and Manufacturers, and the National
Tuberculosis association.
"Among tlie special trains which
will move over the road may be recorded: The Retail Grocers' association of Ohio; the National Klectric
Light association; the American Medical association; a, number ot Shriners' trains to and from Seattle; The
Knights of Columbus; the National
Educational association;! the National
frontal association, and the National
Life Underwriters. One special train
trom Hamilton will bc operated by
"the Frost Wire Pence Company for
their employees. There is allso the
American Bankers' special from New
York with 150 persons nnd Chas. M.
Schwab, the steel magnate, who is
travelling to the coast In a special
train.
"In addition to all the special business there will be a large and ever
increasing travel by individuals, and
arrangements are being made for the
allottment of special space in our
sleeping cars to our San Franeisco
office, and later on in the season we
will allocate special sleeping cars
where the entire space will he reserved for use in our San Francisco office
to take care of the travelers.
"The outlook for the summer is encouraging. It is to be hoped that
suitable provision will be made her"
to supply full information to these
tourists passing through our city, so
tbat Vancouver and the surrounding
country may receive the full benefit of
having so many strangers visit this
section of the country who have not
been here before, and who will be in a
position to spread  information  about
Trout Lake Mining
District Looks Promising
Capt. J.C. Gore, superintendent of
the Canadian Pacific lake and rive.'
steamer service, has returned to Nelson Irom an extended official trip into Trout lake and Ferguson district.
The mining properties there look
more promising than e\er and some
new properties are talked ol. Larger
shipments are hoped tor from the
mines now working in that district.
It ib anticipated thnt the Canadian
Pacific will inaugurate a new service
on Trout, lake this summer should
conditions justify.
Capt. Gore visited Comaplix, the
scene of the recent disastrous fire.
Scarcely a building remains and the
few sctt'.ers lc.'t are livinT in Improvised iiuarters.
Woman Soldier Twice Shot.
Esther Manuel, a Jewess and mother of two children, decided to find
her husband, who was in the Prus-
slan army fighting France. Under
the name of Louis Grafamus she
joined the Second Koenlgsberg uh.
lans. Twice wounded, she rose to the
rank of a sergeant-major and was
rewarded by the German field marshal with the iron cross.
It was only discovered that the
brave sergeant-major was of the fe»-
male sex when she found her husband under the walls of Paris, just
killed by French bullets.
An Armed Cr*b.
"This crab," said the keeper of the
aquarium, "goes armed in his native
state. In his claws, which are too
weak to fight with, he always carries sea anemones.
"The crab ls of the genus Mella.
He lives among beds of coral in
tropical seas. The anemones he carries—one in each claw, like a noses-
gay—are stinging, poisonous ones.
"They are his defence against
enemies, and when I see a soldier
carrying a gun I think to myself that
there Ib a little pink crab in the sea
that is quite as wise as any soldier."
Just as a Compliment.
Count Baldlssare Castlgllone WTote
of manners In sixteenth century
Italy: "Discourse of love Is used by
every gentleman, * * * not only
when impelled by ardor, but also
merely to do honor to the lady with
whom he speaks. The pretense of
loving her is, at .ny rate, a testimony to her worthiness to be loved.
She. on her part, will for a time seem 1
lo fail to understand and anon will
take it all as a merry jest."

White—What's the trouble be- 't
tween you and Green?

Hew He Helped the Doctor* During a
Cholera Epidemio.
In a life and death battle with a
cholera epidemic ln Hunan province,
China, ln which an American medical
missionary was tbe leading figure, on*
of the most serious dlfllculUeea was met
successfully by one of the menial hospital coolies.
Since every patient had to have from
one pint to several quarts of distilM
water with salt tn It, the water could
not be distilled fast enough. For two
days the staff struggled along with
makeshifts while thinking up a plan to
build a still for little money without
the loss of time. This coolie solved
the problem. In one day and at a cost
of less than $2 be built a still which
later produced twenty gallons of die-
tilled water every twenty-four hours.
The still was simplicity itself. For
cooking food the Chinese use large,
flat saucer-like pans made of Iron.
With one of these above and another
below the coolie mode a drum of galvanized Iron with a bole In tlie side for
a trough. Into the lower pan bot water for boiling was poured. Underneath, a hot fire sent up a constant
steam vapor. Tbe upper kettle waa
kept cool by frequent chunkings of coll
water. The vapor from the lower kettle, condensed on tbe lower surface of
the cool upper kettle, dripped off into
the trough, and filled bottle after bottle with distilled water.—World's Work.
THE WHITE FARM.
It Deservid Ite Name, and It Cheaply
Advertised Itself.
During a vacation spent in the north
we were driven through a most pro* j
perous  country,  lined   with   beautiful
farmhouses.
Among others we passed a whit*
farm. The bouse was white, the burns I
were white, the fences were white, i
Milk white cowb were grazing lu th*
fields, and snow white chickens were
running upon the lawn. A huge whit*
dog lay upon the grass, and a whit*
horse, with a white harn<ess and whit*
carriage, was hitched to a white post
by a white strap. The white graveled
drive was bordered with white rock's.
A white fountain threw up a white
spray, while white duckn floated upon
the water beneath.
Just aa we drove by a lady dressed
ln pure white, witb white shoes, stepped out of the door and seated herself
ln a white hammock.
The whole effect was most striking
and was an excellent example of advertisement without expense. Tbe cost
would bave been the same lf no attention had been paid to one .color. Tbere
was no need of giving a name to that
farm. It Is known as tbe White farm
for miles around and ls one of th*
show places of the disetrict
The same Idea, of course, could b*
carried ont with other shades.—Progressive Farmer.

Hear, Heart
"Hear, bear!" is the house of commons cheer, tbe member of parliament
being forbidden the use of any other
form of applause. But "Hear, licari"
ln the bouse of commons may be mad*
to express a number of conflicting
emotions. Some of tbe varieties of
parliamentary cheering have heen
noted by the late William White in
his "Inner Life of the House of Com-
mons." "There la," he writes, "th*
defiant cheer, more like a yell than a
cheer. This ls most commonly heard
from the conservative side of the
house. • • • Then there ls th* !
cheer derisive, which ls very express '
sive, and, again, the cheer confirmatory. • • • There ls also the obstructive cheer, • * • and, lastly, there
ls tbe genuine English, manly, approving cheer." And "Hear, hear!" denote*
