Copyrisht,   1005,   by   A.   S-  Barnes   _- Co.
The boy, Bradley Nlekerson, bad never ridden in a stagecoach before, and
after ten or fifteen minutes of jolt aud
...roll he decided tbnt he never wanted to
ride in one again.
Suddenly Captain Titcomb, wbo had
been silent so far. spoke.
"Heavy sea on tonight," he observed. "'Pears to me Barney'd better
take a reef. She's rollin' consider'-
The boy laughed and said. "Yes,
"Goin' all tbe way to Orham ?" asked
the captain.
"Yes, sir."
"Got folks over there, I presume
likely. Friends or nothin' but jest re
"Relations, I—I guess."
"So! Well, I've got a good many relations over there myself. Fact Is,
Tve got'relations, seems to me, 'most
everywheres. Father used to have so
many of 'em that when he went vls-
ltin' he used to call It 'goin' cousinin'.'
My name's Titcomb. Wbat do they
call you when your back ain't turned?"
The boy laughed again in a puzzled
■way—he scarcely knew wbat to make
of his questioner—nnd said tbat bis
name was Bradley Nlekerson.
"Nlekerson. hey? Thnt settles It;
you're a Cape Codder. Minute I meet
anybody named Nlekerson I always
know they've got tbe same kind of
. sand In their boots tbat I have. Is lt
Obed Nickerson's folks you're goto' to
"No, sir. I'm goin' to live with Miss
Prlscllla Allen. Her and her sister.
They was some of mother's people."
"Sho, well 1 swan!" muttered the
captain. "Prissy and Tempy, bey?
Then Dan wu'n't foolln'. And you're
gol-' to live with 'em?"
'■. "Yes*, sir. Do you know 'fem?"
i. "Wllb—me? Oh, yes! 1 know 'em.
I'm a partlc'lar friend of theirs—that
Is," he added cautiously, "1 call on 'em
once In asvhile jest to say "How are
you?' Why? You didn't hear any of.
them fellers at the depot say anything
'bout me and then, did you? No! 'Well,
all right. I jest thought— Oh, yes! I
know 'em. Nice folks as ever was, but
what you might call a little mite 'sot
in their ways.' lio you always wipe
your feet when you come into the
"Why—wby—yes, sir, If I don't forget it."
| - "All right It's a ,good habit to git
Into, 'specially If you're goin' to walk
on Prissy's floors. Sometimes I've
wished I could manage to put my feet
In my pocket when I've been there. I
wonder If I knesv your father? What
was his name?"
Bradley told bis fatber's name and in
response to tbe captain's tactful questioning a good deal more besides. In
fact, before long Captain Titcomb
knew all about tbe boy, where be came
from, how he happened to come and all
the rest And Bradley for his part
learned that his companion commanded the coasting schooner Tlioman Do-
ane, tbat be had been a sailor ever
since be was fourteen, tbat be bad a
marvelous fund of sea yarns and knew
how to spin tbem and that be (Brad-
ley) liked him.
By and by tbe captain noticed that
the boy's replies to bis cheerful observations were growing rather Incoherent, and, suspecting the reason, be
ceased to talk. A few minutes later he
leaned forward and smiled to rind his
fellow traveler, who bad slipped Clow*
upon the cushion, fast asleep.
When Bradley awoke Captain Titcomb was standing on the ground by
the open door of the coach.
"Good night Brad," he said. "Here's
where I'm bound for. You've got a five
minute ride or so more 'fore you git to
the old mai—that Is, to Prissy and
Tempy's. I'll see you tomorrer. You
and me's goin' to be cbums, you know."
The door was shut Mr. Small struck
up "Camptown Races," and the stage
bumped on again. This time the boy
did not sleep, but holding on to the
strap, tried to peer through the snow
crusted window. He saw a light here
and there, but little else. After a short
interval the coach turned a sharp corner, rolled on fer perhaps twice Its
length and then stopped.
Mr. Small opeued tbe door, nnd Bradley, looking past him, saw the side of a
large house aud a lighted doorway,
with two female figures, one plump
and tbe other slender, standing In It.
From behind them the lamplight
streamed warm and bright and sent
their shadows almost to his feet
"Come on, bub," said the stage driver.   "Here's where you git out   Miss
Prissy," be shouted, "here's your
HE plump woman, whom Mr.
Small hail addressed as "Miss
Prissy," ssascounting into the
stage driver's palm a sum ln
snail change from a portentous black
wallet that fastened wltb a strap.
"Good night'' said the driver, pocketing the mouey, with a grunt and a jingle. Like the boy, he had been very
careful not to step off the mat "Good
night, Miss Tempy. Snow's lettln' up a
little mite. Guess 'twill be clear by
mornln'.  Good night Brad."
The plump lady closed the door behind him jnst in time to shut out tbe
opening notes of the "Sweet By and
By." Then sbe dropped the hook Into
the staple, svouud the leather strap
carefully about the wallet, placed the
latter In a compartment of n tall chest
of drawers in Uie comer, turned the
key upon it und put the 1. ty under the
alabaster candlestick on the mantel.
Then she turned to the boy, who. holding his carpet bug with both hands,
still stood uneasily on the mat, while
the slim lady tidgetecLIn frout of him.   '
"Bradley," said the plump lady—she
was uressed In some sort of black material that rustled and wore a lace collar. Jet earrings and a breastpin with a
braided bek of hair in the center of It
—"Bradley, we're real glad to see you.
I'm Miss Prlscllla; this is my sister,
Miss Temperance."
"Yes, Bradley." coincided "Miss
Tempy," "we're real glad to see you."
She waa the younger of the two and
was gowned in wMt the boy learned
later was her -brown poplin." Her
hair was uot svorn plain, like her sister's, but hud a little bunch of curls
over each ear. She also svore a hair
breastpin,, but her earrings were gold.
Bradley shook the' extended bands,
Miss Rrlssy's red and dimpled and
Miss Tempy's thin and white, with
two old fashioned rings on the fingers.
"Won't you—won't you set down?"
ventered Miss Tempy after a rather
awkward pause.
"Why, yes, of course," said Miss
Prissy, "and take your things right off
Bradley placed the carpetbag on the
corner of the mat and pulled off the
shabby overcoat. The jacket and
trousers beneath svere also sbabby, but
lt was at bis" shoes that Miss Prissy
glanced, and, oddly enough, their condition served to break the formality.
"My goodness me!" she ejaculated.
"Jest look at his poor feet Tempy
Allen! Come rlgbt over to the stove
this minute and take off those shoes.
They're soppln' wet through."
"No, ma'am," protested the boy.
"Tbey ain't, honest. They only look
"Don't tell me!" commanded Miss
Prissy. "Go right over to the stove
this minute."
Bradley reluctantly obeyed, stepping
gingerly across the spotless oilcloth
and taking as Ions strides ns possible.
It 'did not add to bis comfort to see
Miss Tempy shake the melting snow
Into the center of the rope mat, fold
the latter carefully together and disappear with It Into the kitchen.
Miss Prissy piloted him to the chlnti.
covered rocker by the big "airtight"
stove. Then she proceeded to unlace
the patched brogues, commenting In an
undertone upon the condition of the
stockings beneath.
"I'm 'frald." said Bradley fearfully,
"that I've got some snow water on
your floor, ma'am."
"Don't say a word. Thank goodness
your feet ain't so svet as I thought they
was. Put 'em right on the rail of the
stove there while I go up to the garret and get those slippers of father's.
I'll be right back."
She hurried out of the room just as
her sister entered it by the other door.
"Now. set right still," said Miss Tempy, bustling about with the steaming
teakettle In her hand. "I'm goin' to
mnke you some pepper tea. There's
nothln' In the world like pepper tea
when you're likely to catch cold."
"Pepper tea" was a new prescription
for the boy, and he watched with Interest while Miss Tempy turned some
milk Into a bowl, flooded lt with boiling water, added a spoonful of sugar
aud vigorously shook the pepper box
over tbe mess.
"There!"s.she sa|dv, "Now. drink that,
every drop. Ain'tyou hungry?"
Bradley, with tears lu his eyes, the
result of the first swallow of pepper
ten, gaspingly protested that he wasn't
hungry, not very. The sight and smell
of the loaded supper table were so
tempting that the denial was rather
half hearted.
"Not very! When did you have anything to ent last?"
"Mr. Bartlett—he's the s'lectman at
Wellmouth—gave me a sandwich at
thedepot 'fore I started, ma'am, and I
bought a turnover at Harulss."
"My sakes! Prissy"—to her sister,
who came rustling lu—"he hasn't et a
thing but a sandwich aud a turnover
since morning. Now, come right over
to the table, Bradley, and set dosvn."
As the boy ate he looked about the
room. It was a big room, with a low
celling, spotlessly whitewashed. The
oilcloth on the floor was partially covered with braided rag mats with carpet centers. Ou the svludow shades
were wonderful tinted pictures of castles and mouutalns. The table was
black walnut aud there were five rush
seated chairs, each in Its place against
the wall and looking as if It were glued
there. The sixth of the set he occupied. Then there was the chintz covered rocker nnd another rocker painted
black, with u woru picture of a ship at
sea on the back. There was another
ship over the face of the tall wooden
clock ln the corner. This craft was-
evidently the Flying Dutchman, for
every time the clock ticked It rolled
heavily behind a fence of tin waves,
but didu't nds-unce an Inch. On tbe
Walls were several works of art. Including* spatter svork motto, a wreath
made of seasbells under a glass and
an engraving showing a boat filled
with men, women and children rowed
by a solemn Individual In bis shirt
sleeves, moving over a placid sheet of
water toward nn unseen port
"Cap'n Titcomb," remarked Bradley,
whose bashfulness was wearing offi,
"came over In the cJhch with me tonight"
The effect of this announcement was
remarkable.     Miss   Prissy   looked   at
Bradley shook tho extended handt.
Miss Tempy, and the latter returned
the look.   Strange to say, both colored.
"Cap'u Titcomb?" faltered Miss
Prissy.   "Cap'u Ezra Titcomb?"
"Yes, ma'am. He talked to me 'most
all the wiiy.   I liked him first rate."
"Wby—why, I do declare! I didn't
knosv the cap'n was expected, did you,
"No, I'm sure I dldn'tr exclaimed
the flustered younger sister. "Did he—
i_-J he tell you why he was comin',
Bradley ?'
"No, ma'am, but I heard him tell tba
man that drove tbe coach that be bad
shore leave for a week 'cause his
schooner was laid up for repairs. He
said he knew you, though, and that he

Average Wages  In Canada.
The Census and Statistics Bureau
has issued a blue book as to wage-
earners in Canada by - occupation according to returns of the last doeouuiul
census. The average yearly earnings
at regular work ef all climees of occupations is $387.16 for males and
$181.98 for females. Trade and transportation 'pays an average wage ol
{503.62 lor every uuUu employe. Professional men, including olergy. Government employes, musicians, touchers, engineers, etc, earn W78.88 per
/ear en the average. Average iviriuuga
of males employed in manufacturing
$443.14; in agriculture, ,"-i*7_t>5 in domestic and personal service, $272.46.
Of the whole number of wage-earners,
814,930, the males constitute 81.75 pei
cent., and the females 18.83 per oent.;
and, comparing the totals of all wage-
earners of both sexes by classes with
the totals of all classes, it is found
that the agricultural —.ass gives employment to 8.93 per cent.,. the domestic and personal class to 25.61 per
cent., the fisheries class to 0.91, tbe
forestry and lumbering class to 2.02
per »erit., the manufacturing class to
83.83 per cent., the mining class to
2.93 oer cent., Uie professional olass
to 6.34 per cent., and the trade and
transportation class to 19.37 per cent.
English Jurors' Remuneration.
The scale of remuneration of English
common Jurymen ls absurd. In a civil
case In England a common juryman ia
allowed 5 shillings ($1.25) a day for "a
view"—that in, tor Inspecting any property or thing In dispute—but otherwise
he Is, ln law, not entitled to nny remuneration. It is usual, however, in
the high court to give him a fee of 1
shilling and in the counties 8 pence.
Special jurymen receive much higher
remuneration. ' The fee In tho county
court ls 1 shilling a ense, In the mayor's court 2 pence and In the London
sheriff's court 4 pence.—Chambers'
Some    Delicacies    Favored    by    tha
Prince of Wales.
The chef to the household of the
Prince of Wales. M. Cedard, has been
chatting to a London journalist upon
the dishes most favored by the i<oyal
"It is difficult to say which -is the
favorite dish," he remarked, "but I
think oysters would make a very bold
bid. These are served to their Royal
Highnesses almost daily.
"As a rule, however, both the
Prince and Princess prefer plain
dishes, with a predilection for the
French cuisine, as compared with the
English, while the time-table of the
day's meals is:
Breakfast at  9.30 a.m.
Lunch at  2.00p.m.
Ten at    5.00p.m.
Dinner at  8.30p.m.
"After a visit to the theatre or the
opera," continued M. Cedard, "their
Royal Highnesses simply have a light
supper.    That is all.
"And the little princes? Ah, Prince
Edward, Prince Albert, and Princess
Victoria lunch with the Prince and
Princess of Wales, but the little ones
partake of breakfast with their tutors
and governesses.
In the evening the little princes
and their sister are given no actual
supper, no elaborate meal, but they
may have a few daintily-cut sandwiches, a little game, or something
of that kind "
Th&« M. Cedard suddenly thought
of another delicacy liked both by the
King and the Prince of Wales.
"This is caviare," he said, "but, as
is the case with the oysters, it has
to pass the doctor. He has to satisfy
himself that everything is pure before it is allowed to reach the royal
Statistics Say That  In England,  Imprisonment for Debt  Is Increasing.
It will come as a surprise to many
people that imprisonment fpr debt in
England is steadily increasing. Figures demonstrating this are given in
Part II. of the Civil Judicial Statistics for 1905. just issued. During thnt
year 11,427 debtors were imprisoned
in England and Wales, as against
11,096 in the previous year, and the
avorage of 10.218 for the five years
including 1905. Twenty years before
1905, the report states, there were
only about one-third as many warrants of commitment issued and about
one-half as many debtors imprisoned.
There was an increase in 1905 of
petitions for divorce — 752 as against
720 in 1904—but the figure- were not
so large as in 1902 and 1903, when
they were 889 and 824 respectively.
Of the 752 petitions in 1905, 323 were
presented by wives, as against 429
in 1904. Deorees nisi were granted to
wives in 261 cases and -to husbands
in 362 cases.
The total number of appeals, actions, etc., heard and determined '.n
aU the civil courts of the country
during 1905 was 479,165, against 497.-
334 in 1904. Of tfaese, however, county courts were responsible for 472,123
and 489,929 respectively. In the section devoted to probate matters it is
incidentally mentioned that the tot«l
weaith of private persons in the
United Kingdom in 1905 liable to
death duties was computed at £7,-
_-_00,000. During 1905 the gross
value of estates admitted to probate
was £261,110,000.
Maori  Legends.
Many of the old Maori taleB hnve
to do with a mythical monster, called
"Taniwha," usually described as a
great lizard or c-codile, although it
has been many centuries since any ol
the Polynesian race can have had direct knowledge of the existence oi
such an animal. This is the legend of
the-two Triniwh-8, the guardian-'monsters of the two Maori tribes; one on
the east const, and one on the west
coast of the North Uland of New Zealand iu very ancient times. The
Taniwha living in the Bay of Islands
once went a-roving to see a bit ol
the world, and swam around the North
Cape to the west, where he was hospitably entertained.
Tho wandering Taniwha proteased
to be very grateful for the hospitality
and kind attention shosvn to him, and
when his visit was ended he pressed
the othc to accompany him home.
The guileless and amiable west coast
Taniwiro accepted the invitation, and
away the two friends swam around the
North Cape and down the east coast
to the Bay of Islands. The roaming
Taniwha was a perfidious villain. He

The Tallest Trees.
Australia rivals California in the
matter of possessing the tallest trees
in the world. The California "Big
Tree"—Sequoia Wellingtonia—sometimes grows to the height of from
300 to 325 feet, with a trunk 25 or
more feet in diameter. The tallest
American tree is the red wood—Sequoia sempervirens—which in some
instances has attained the height of
400 feet or even more. In Australia
the tallest trees are found in Victoria.
There are, indeed, records of Australian trees approximating 500 feet in
height, but these are taken to he exaggerations. It seems well enough established, however, that there are
trees in Australia which tower upward of 253 feet into the air. Trees
hnve boen found in Africa which fall
not much short ot 100 feet in height.
People   Have   Not   Learned  Necessity
of Stocking Up for Winter.
An advance of 15 per cent, in prices
is a little detail which is presented
tor the consideration of the coal consumer in the prairie provinces, and
he is thereby enabled to realize one
of the benefits ot an agreement between operators and men.in the coal
fields. Quotations are 90 cents to $1.50
per ton higher in Regina, and this
increase practically applies to the
whole Province of Saskatchewan. All
grades of western coal are included.
Prices are still beiow the level at
which Pennsylvania coal can compete in these markets, but the difference is slight, and it is possible that
more of the American product may
be used in future.
During the strenuous days of the
lest coal shortage the companies and
the railsvays svere attacked for their
inability to provide a sufficient supply of fuel. It ivas argusd that tho
public must be served, no matter
whnt. the cost might be. tn fnct, 't
wns proclaimed that the consumer
should hnve the eoal, because he was
prepared to pay for it, even if the
price were $20 per ton. But a revolution in the weather has worked a
change in popular sentiment. Nosv
that, the summer, or an advance copy
of it, hap arrived a:.d balmy breezes
are being wafted over the prairies,
the disregard for values in the coal
market is less apparent. Complaints
are heard, in fact, because the pnb'ia
is called upon to pay the increased
wages which the miners in the mountains receive. It is considered unfair that the consumer should be forced to settle for the advances which
the operators hnve chosen to give to-
their men. When the winter comes
back these complaints will probabiy
congeal. The-scramble for coel will
take the place of academic'discussions on the economic phaseB of the-
Railway Pays More.
It is interesting to know that the
Canadian Pacific Railway is contributing its share of the increased
cost of producing coal. It is by 'nr
the largest consumer of steam, con I
in the west, and its requirements seem
to keep pace with the output of the
mines. It obtains its coal at a great
reduction, of course, because it enters into contracts to take delivery
of a large quantity from ench mine
every day. The advances in svages
have made it necessary for the railway company to pny 10 per cent, more
for its coal, and this means a lane
additionnl expenditure. Thousands
of tons ol coal are consumed by locomotives alone on the divisions west
of Winnipeg, and nearly all this fuel
comes from the mines whicli were
affected by the recent settlement.
Consumer Should Stock Up.
There arc not many indications that
the warnings svluch have been issu-d
with .respect to another shortage of
fueljduring the coming winter are being "inspected. The people of the svest
do not often cross a bridge before
thev come to it, and they do not intend to worry very seriously over the
eoal outlook until there is somo urg-
ent need of concern. It is more than
possible thnt a wail will arise next
November about the scarcity of fuel,
and Governments and railways will
work overtime in the effort to relieve
distress. Much of this trouble would
be obviated if the individual consumers would show enterprise by stocking up during the Bummer. It is easy
to deliver coal., both from cars and
from the wagons, during such weather
as this, and the transportation companies and coal trade would welcomo
an opportunity to supply the needs ol
the public now. The unwillingness ol
tho public to accept delivery is a disappointing feature of the situation.
No Demand  Just Now.
One firm in Regina has several
thousand tons of coal in stock, lot
which It would be glad to receive orders, but there is very little demand.
There is no doubt that the money
stringency is partly responsible tot
the dullness in the retail trade, prospective buyers being unwilling to tie
up their coal money for several
months on the presumption of a
shortage. The optimistic spirit of the
country inclines to a hope that next
winter will not be severe, at least not
so severe as the last, and that the
coal problem will present lewer difficulties. The activity in the trade
will not come before October, unless
a great missionary campaign is undertaken by the coal merchants, the
railways and other institutions concerned.
Instinct In Plants.
Climbing plants have two opposing;
methods of describing spiral growth.
The plants that turn to the right In
the northern hemisphere reverse this
trend ln tbe southern hemisphere, aud
therefore, for the sake of consistency,
It may be preferable to describe the
two kinds of spiral tendency as respectively "clockwise" and "counter
clockwise," which latter can be shortened to "counterwise." The honeysuckle and the hop turn "clockwise,"
while the convolvulus and the scarlet
runner bean twine "counterwise." Experiments made by. growing scarlet runner 'beans in opaque cylinders, to discover whether the deviation of tho
twist was innate or merely from t_e
direction of tbe light disclosed the
fact that the plant possesses an inclination resembling the instinct of animals,
of proceeding in a given direction, and
resents any attempt to force lt otherwise. THE ADVOCATE, VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA-

■ A remarkable tale of native superstition and credulity was told at the
Magistrate's Court recently, when
eight Mashona natives from the Mire-
was district Underwent preliminary
examination for committing certain
offences under the Witchcraft Suppression Ordinance, says The Rhodesia Herald. The eight natives were
all relatives, and the father of some
of them died recently. Not being quite
satisfied that death was due to natural
causes, appeal was made to a certain
native named Chibanda, who the
prosecutor stated was a well-known
witch doctor, though this fact wa?
aot elicited in evidence. The outcome of the incantations was that two
of the sons, Mapira and Katiwa visit
ed a neighboring kraal and accused n
native woman named Kajiwa of having bewitched their father and caused
his death.
They demanded of the husband ot
this lady that she should undergo an
ordeal to test the truth of the allegations. The husband asked for three
days' grace, saying he wanted hiF
wife's uncle to be present at the trial
When, -bis spa**' -_d- elapBed. Qhitan-

i his wife and her uncle, a native named
Denti, set out for the kraal at which
the ordeal was to take place. On
arrival the party were directed to s
small spruit below the kraal, where
the eight natives sat in conclave.
Chibanda was mast€j^of.__ll^"noniesJ
and sat cooking some liquid in a pot
When the medicine was cooked the
lady was told to take a draught. It
was explained that two draughts oi
this medicine would act either as an
emetic or a burgative should the woman be a witch. Two draughts were
administered, but left the lady un
Chibanda thereupon again piled the
medicine', evidently determined that
the oracle should work, and after the
unfortunate female had taken 21 doses
nature rebelled and the medicine acted in its dual capacity. On this five
of the natives sprang up with assegais and kerries, crying: "There is
the witch who killed our father. Let
us kill her." But the husband and
uncle came to the rescue. After some
discussion the bereaved sons agreed
to be compensated, and as a first in-
8lalment the uncle handed*bver a kaf-
fir hoe, telling them if they killed
his niece he would .inform ofl them.
The lady ancl her relatives'theni went
back to their respective kraals. Three
days afterward the two natives, Mapira and Katiwa, revisited the lady's
husband and demanded the witch to
be handed over to them to be killed.

Australia's  Wine  Crop.
The 1907 vintage must rank as one
of the finest Australia has ever had.
Abundant rains were the chief cause
if this fortunate result.
In northeast Victoria the phylloxera
is gradually getting a hold and is de-

They are being reconstructed on resistant stocks, however, and it is
lioped that the output will in a few
years  be greater  than ever.
In South Australia an excellent crop
is reported from all the widely
.eparated districts. Certain varieties
liave failed, but others hnve given a
more than usually abundant crop,
with the result that the quantity will
be about the same as last year, while
the quality will be infinitely  better.

to become known, it must be talked
about.     For an  article    to    become
pomilar its virtue must be n    1e tht
subject   of  a   pubHc     announcement
That   is   advertising!      Consequently
if  the  survival  of  the  Attest  applies
to  business  principles  as   well  as  it
does to otlier walks of life, the better the advertising—the better the
publicity—(he better the results.
Good results mean good business,
and good business is what every
-merchant advertises for. If he did
not wish ta excel iu his particular
line, he would not take the trouble

San Francisco, Cal.—Two more deaths
from bubonic plague occurred to-day
and three additional diseases were verified Follosving are the totals of the
disease to date
Number of cases, 21; number of
deaths, 10,' These are inclusive of the
cases in Berkeley, which proved fatal.
Attention is called to the fact that thus
far the death percentage is very low,
less than one-half. The standard death
rate for the plague is about 80 per cent.

"A Hundred-point Mau."
The other day I wrote to a banker-
frtepd inquiring as to the responsibility
of a certain perron. The answer came
back, thus: "Ho is a Hundred-Point
man iu everything and anything he
undertakes." I rend the telegram aud
then pinned it up over my desk where I
could see it. That bight it sort of stuck
in my memory.   I dreamed of it.
A Hnndred-point mau is one who is
true to every trust; who keeps his word
who is loyal to the firm that employs
him; who does uot listen for insults nor
look for slights; who carrios a civil
tongue iu his hoad; who is polite to
strangers, without being "fresh"; who
is considerate towards servants; who is
moderate in his eating and drinking;
wlio is sviiliug to learn ; ss'ho is cautious
anil yet courageous.
Hundred-point meu may vary much
111 ability, but thin is always true—they
ure safe luou to deal with, whether
drivers of drays, mnturmou, clerks,
cashiers, engineers or presidents of
He is mora interested iu doing his

The Huudred-poiut man looks after
just one individual, uud rliut is the lunn
under his osvu hat; he is o.m svlio does not
spend money until he earns it; who pays
hit way; who kunsvs that nothing is ever
given for nothing; who keeps his digits
off other people's property. When he

Canadian Pictorial.
A Canadian girl sitting at the end of
a pier jutting out into one of the great
lakes, her head silhouetted against the
setting sun, which touches the dancing
water with its slanting rays—this is the
cover picture of the September "Canadian Pictorial," the monthly which,
though only in its second year, announces that there is a surprise in store
next month, as it is to be enlarged considerably. The important happenings
of the month are illustrated: The explosion at Essex, Ont; the fire at Old
Orchard, in which half the summer hotels svere destroyed and thousands of
guests rendered temporarily homeless;
the Pilgrim Doukhobors in Winnipeg;
the annual outing of the Canadian Alpine Club; the birthday of Professor
Goldsvin Smith. The women's department includes a sketch of the work
of the W. C. T. U., the Dominion convention of which is to be held this month
in Winnipeg, with articles on autumnal
fashions, care of the teeth, and other
timely topics. Ten cents a copy; one
dollar a year post paid, the svorld over.

The Advent Christian Ohurch of
Mc. Pleasant have secured the services
of the Rev. Ohas. P. Kittredge of
Manchester, N. H., as their permanent
pastor, and will commcuco his work in
Vancouver Sept. 22d. Elder Kittredge
comes with excellent recommendations
from former charges. After graduating
from the University of Maine in 1893,
he took a post-graduate course at the
Colby College, Wattsville, Maine, in
1896; afterwards taking two years in the
Newton Theological Seminary at
Newton Centre, Mass. He has just
closed a very successful period of 18
months for the Advent Christian
Ohurch, Manchester, N. H., and severs
his conneotion with them only after an
earnest appeal from the Vancouver
church, and the description of the city
and province, he felt the opportunity
for gospel work greater here than in
New Hampshire. Elder Kittredge is an
earnest and eloquent speaker. A cordial
invitation is extended to all to attend
the Advent Christian Church on
Seventh avenue.
The Anti-Asiatic Demonstration.
The anti-Asiatic parade on Saturday
last was a huge success, several thousand
men being in line. As the parade passed
alung men standing on the sidewalks
stepped out and lull in line, and by the
time tne parade arrived at the City Hall
it numbered between live and six thousand. There were a number of banners
inscribed with various mottos: "Stand
lor a White Canada," "Steamer Mont-
eagle will arrive Sept. 11 with 900 Hindus, 1,100 Chinamen and a bunch of
Japs," and winding up witn "What
shall we do to be saved?" there was
an effigy of Lieut.-Gov. Dunsmuir whicll
was burned in front of the City Hall.
Tiie hail was packed and a large crowd
was addressed in front of the hall. A
third crowd marched up and down
Westminster avenue to the music of a
fife and drum band until someone
shouted out "All in line boys for Chinatown," wliich was enthusiastically responded to. On arrival in Chinatown a
wholesale smashing of plate-glass windows took place, thert a march to tlie
Japanese quarters took place and more
windows were smashed. The police
made many arrests Saturday and Sunday nights, and by Wednesday quiet
was restored. On Tuesday the Orientals bought all the revolvers, knives and
ammunition they could, until the authorities notified the hardware men to stop
selling to them. After the events of
Saturday it seems strange the hardware
merchants would sell weapons to the
Orientals. it is to the credit
of Mount Pleasant hardware men that
they refused to sell weapons or ammunition to the Orientals. On Tuesday
all the Chinese employed as domestics,
cooks and in all lines refused to go to
work, through fear or a desire to show
horn much the community depended
upon their labor. A couple of Japs were
injured by flying stones and one white
man was stabbed by a Jap and two injured by being attacked with glass bottles.
While the destruction of property resulting from the rioting on Saturday
night, the 7th, is to be regretted, yet it
shows the pent-up animosity of the
whites towards the Orientals. It should
have the effect of waking up the Federal authorities to the necessity of prohibiting the importation of any more
Asiatics. The increasing number of
Orientals coming to this country partakes little of the qualities of an immigration for the development of the
country's resources. It is a wholesale
importation, an invasion to be looked
upon with grave solicitude. Wherever
there is a white man or woman at work
for wages, whether in domestic service,
the factory of farm, there is an opening for an Oriental. No matter how
low the wages may be, the Oriental can
afford to work for still lower wages.
This servile labor must be prohibited if
we are to have a "White Canada."

*._rge Display of Armed Police—Tenants Offer Stubborn Resistance-

Enemies — Tussle on the Rocks—
"Camera Fiend Has Lively Tims—
•Women Lead the Fray.
Evictions on the Leahy estate, at
Kilrnacowan and Gowlane, near Cas-
ft—'town, Berehaven, recently took
jploee, when about a dozen holdings
were visited.
A stubborn resistance was offered,
—.-.withstanding the grotesquely large
<su—led police force, to the number of
MElase on 400 men.
This excessive army of constabu-
Hary, brought together at very consid-
i-mt—ble cost, for the purpose of eject-
«_g about two dozen families of Btarv-
T_ag peasants, has been severely com-
«nented upon, and instead of being
Tinstrumcn'.al in the preservation of
.peace, had the effect of driving the
-_ry poorest of Irish peasantry to
Women'Lose Their  Heads.
At sight of the hated invaders the
"WOO—in'of'the village lost their heads
^Eompletely. With, shrill cries in Irish
:_nil English, they rushed down on
'their laggard menfolk and told them
-what they thought of them for hang-
ting back from the fight.
At last' the men made a rush on
She police. -But peLing rain and the
.-sight of men with rifles are poor helps
"So valor. The rush was a half-hearted
.affair. They came splashing through
ft*—. muddy street, but stopped irresolute when within a short distance of
3.he police.
At this the women were terribly
-jMit out, and rushed on the police-
:__nen themselves, courageous as suffragettes, shouting, "English dogs,"
' "English cowards." They were
^promptly arrested, whereupon they
.".shrieked as they were in the arms of
rthe policemen, "Dirty English cow-
i'srcls, would you hit a woman!" The
Rpolieemen took it very well, used the
-women with as little roughness as
loossible, and released them later.
Photographers   Victims.
Then occurred the most exciting in-
'«_dent. A party of villagers, about
t'.wo dozen altoge'-her, had climbed to
x£he top of some rocks overhanging the
-louses -where the evictions were tak-
•_ng place. From here they commenc-
■xed to hurl down good-sized stones
-■and heavy- sticks. „ party of police
'.-Stormed the rocks and had quite, ap
seventful time before they managed
*o reach the top. Here they fell
mpon the wild Irishmen, and, after a
thus—less-like tussle on top of the
rocks, in view of the whole excited
•orillnge, managed to arrest the men.
■There were a few comic interludes.
The army of police was followed by
_ rear-guard of amateur photographers, anxious to get snapshots. They
•were fair game to the infuriated villagers. What they could not do to
.Wie police they did to the cameras,
and every amateur who tried to get
a picture when the trouble was hot-
' test had his instrument promptly taken from him and danced upon. Fragments ol plates and cameras strewed

Can   Best   Be   Banished   by   Dr.   Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People
In summer your biood gets thin
and watery. You feel simply
wretched—tired, worn out, dull, your
nerves are irritable, your whole system is out of gear. There is just one
medicine that will give you strength
and vim to endure the fag of even
the hottest days—Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. They have helped thousands.
Perhaps jrour neighbors have already
told you they have helped them.
They're the medicine that makes
that pure, rich, red blood that everyone needs for good health—they
never fail to do that. Mrs. L. A.
Carriere, the popular stewardess of
the Jacques Cartier club, Montreal,
Que., says: "For two years I was a
constant sufferer from general debility. The least work fatigued me
and sometimes I could not work at.
all. I could not raise my hand
above my head without feeling pains
in all my muscles. I was very weak
and sometimes became so dizzy that
I would fall unless I could lean
against something for support. While
in this condition I was advised to
try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I t'id
so and by the time I had taken mn
boxes I was in perfect health, and
am now able to look after all .ny
duties without tne least fatigue.
When I began taking the Pills I was
a great sufferer—today I feel as if I
never was ill—thanks to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills strike
right at the root of anaemia, debility, rheumatism, indigestion, the S'e-
ret ills of women and growing gins,
etc., when they make new blood—
they do just that one thing, but they
do it well—good blood always brings
good health. Sold by all medicine

Favorite Vehicle of British Metropolis
Severjly   Criticized.
Did you ever see a fat man losing
ground as he runs to catch a train?
Probably. If so you have seen the
nearest human equivalent to the
speed of a London omnibus. The London omnibuB—or "bus." as it is commonly termed- i> not a thing to be
considered lightly. There is something
so solemn and awe-inspiring in its
steady lack of speed that words fail
the passenger who fain would hurry;
and anyway his thoughts could have
no legitimate expression under existing laws.
The fat man losing ground while
running to catch a train is liable to
an attack of heart failure. So is the
London 'bus passenger who feels that
a train must be caught, or that a
destination must be reached within
any given time.
After one has seen a London 'bus
he realizes the mechanical ideal that
has inspired designers of challengers
for the America's Cup. The 'bus is
built on solid, substantial, British
lines; resisting obstructions to the last
degree—air, water and mud.
For centuries the world has known
and respected the resisting qualities
of the British troops. When they have
met their foes, have they wavered cr
faltered in fighting every inch of the
ground? Never! Something "has got
to bust" when Britons go into action
—sometimes the Britons themselves,
but the balance of victories is on
their side.
The London 'bus is British from it-
rain swept top seats to the place
where the springs ought to be, and
when it meets a sea of mud, think
you it fears to give battle? Not while
it hangs together! Onward plunges
the gallant 'hus through torrents cf
garment wrecking substance; bouncing, bumping, lurching, shaking,
palpitating, hearing, rocking from
end to end and side to side—an invaluable training for an ocean voyage—and at the end of a few hours
reaches a point somewhat nearer it-
destination than it was before starting—unrecognizable  but  triumphant.
Agassiz, pre-eminent as a naturalist,
after seeing a single detached bone,
could reason out the whole structure
of the animal of which that bone had
been a part. What Agassiz was to animal life all Londoners are to vehicles.
They Bee a fearsome mountain of mud
approaching. The foreigner thinks it
an evidence of a landslide, but even
the small Londoner knows it to be a
'bus, and the expert adult can tell by
the texture of the mud what route it
has passed over.
If that brilliant bnt misguided map
maker Napoleon Bonaparte had had
a loyal fleet of. London 'buses when
he tried to cross-the English Channel
Admiral NelBon's name would have
appeared only in the appendix to naval history. It bo happened, however,
that Nelson had in his service several boatloads of men well qualified
to drive 'buses, and their resolute
methods of driving through obstacles
won Trafalgar and made famous the
saying, "England expects every man
to do his duty."
Although the all conquering spirit
of the London 'bus haa tabued British armies for hundreds of years the
symbol itself has not been used in
warfare. However, the War Office and
the Admiralty may yet advocate the
nse of squadrons and batteries tf
'buses to dislodge future enemies from
exceptionally strong positions. Water-
loos and Balaklavas could "be won
easily with 'buses to do the charging.
What would a few thousands of mere
men avail before vehicles that had
bidden bold defiance to London
Port Arthur would hoist the white
flag when it heard the 'buses coming. Gibraltar, if in other hands than
English, would take to its heels.—

WHEN Marie Antoinette .became
Queen of France, so runs the
story, she shocked her courtiers   and   ignored   tradition
by calling ln a man to dress her hair
and  invent  the   coiffure   a   Iu  Marie
1—onard, the hairdresser, was an
artist in his line, and he took the
fair tresses of the lovely Austrian,
drew them over a trellis of fine wire,
introduced a cushion or two, and
finally built a tower almost a foot
high, whicli he topped with a nodding ostrich plume.
Now, i. we are to believe the prophecies of the fashionable hairdressers
of today, the American woman of
1907 bids fair to follow ln the footsteps of the fair but unfortunate
French Queen.
ColffurLS are becoming more and
more elaborate. What our French
brethren call "postiches" (whicll, as
near as we can come to it, means
something false or superadded) are
being used in their construction, and
if this state of affairs continues, we
will be constrained to follow the example of tlie Japanese lady wlio
dulnes in ti fresh coiffure once a
month nnd sleeps on a block to prevent tlie disarrangement of her hirsute edifice.
Little huts are at the root of the
matter, a small tint shows nil the
ugly lines of the head, and there are
few women with hair enough (even
If it could possibly be twisted Into
tbe desired shapes) to till nut all the
places that need tilling, and so we
must needs buy  linger puffs.
Wust Match Your Hair Exactly
Ol course, the linger puffs cun be
made from combings of your own hair
lf the cuinbiugs are in good shape unit if
you have a skilful manufacturer of hnir
goods In your own neighborhood. Otherwise it ts well to buy your puffs ready
Go to a reliable hnir dealer and see
to It that the puff matches your hair
exactly. Single puffs are convenient, as
they can be adjusted to suit the individual taste, but one of the best coiffeurs in tlie country recommends the
chignon puff as being tbe most satisfactory nil around. This is mude on a
llttle wire frame with fo_r or Ave 4>.ul—,
Which can be dressed dally.
Women who are blessed with curly
Jmlr by nature should never ccssc to
give thanks for lt, and since curls are
desirable, whether natural or artificial,
/iy your finger puffs of curly.hair.
If your pompadour Is prone to fall flat
/r droop into ugly lines, the finger pjffs
. more especially the ones made from
;urly hnlr) can be ruffled up and pinned
under the hair ns pompadour plumpers.
They are lighter, more comfortable and
give a far prettier and more graceful
effect than any of the numerous "tats"
of wire or hnir that have been used for
the purpose.
For an Indoor coiffure the finger pufl_.
may be pinned nlmost anywhere Unit
suits the fancy of the wearer. They
must be pinned securely, of course, and
now there are shown tiny bunches of
curls—five or less In a bunch—which
*re pinned on top of the hend to give a
finishing touch to nn elaborate arrangement. , .
When the finger puffs nre to be used
for their prlmnry purpose—tbe ft'ilng

hatpins through the puffs to the hat,
for lur bettor to have li.id no f]

When the last puff ts in place, study
the effect again by the aid of yeur mirrors, and if all is satisfactory, adjust
your veil, and go forth rejoicing in an
up-to-date end becoming coiffure,
A careful woman will tnke good care
of her finger puffs. She will roll them
over her fingers, of course, to keep
them ln shape, and she will brush them
to keep them smooth. When hir finger
puffs are not In use she will not toss
them pell-mell Into her top drawer to
await the next wearing. Instead, she
will have a special place to keep them,
so that there will be no danger of tumbling or breaking the hnlr. She mav
even have a sachet for them. In which

As to Sleeves
ARE your sleeves bothering you be-
cause they look out of date? If
so. Just note some of tho fashion
plates and see what you can do with
a little ingenuity. First, If they are of
that variety wcrn comparatively recently, "baggy" at the hand and small at
the top, turn them upside down and
add a modern cuff or band. They may
need a little piecing right at the seams,
top and bottom, but, well done, this need
never show. If they are merely tight.
Insertion or vertical bands will remedy
the evil. Or, possibly, they may be
tucked or gathered In somewhere, if
so, let all this out and press well so
that the old stitchings will not show,
and try cutting a new sleeve. Don't feel
distressed lf the under side is not quite
so straight with the goods as you would
like to have it, if It comes out better
that way. Make the rest of your sleeve
carefully and give it a good touch. No
one will notice the under side, and the
sooner you yourse^ forget it the better
off you will be. »-    . i
When Catches Come Out
W-MKN catches come out of
gloves, It Is not necessary to
discard the gloves, by any
means, for they can be put back again
unless they have torn the place from
which they have come. Do not be discouraged lf, on examining the hole left
by the departed catch, lt seems twice
as large as the catch Itself. This ls
probably merely because lt ls stretched
and will not make any difference ln the
replacing. With a fine needle and cotton, not silk, overcast the hole ln small
stitches, not going very deep Into the
glove. A very shallow overcasting will
hold without pulling out.    »
Draw the hole up sic V, and carefully around the button I' the groove
meant for lt. If the work ls done
otherwise than slowly and carefully,
the thread may break or the material
may pucker. But lf done as prescribed,
even a large hole will gradually fill in
and fall Into place. After the thread
has been drawn up in this way, It
should be wrapped around the clasp two
or three times to make all secure and
the thread finished off on the wrong
side. If these directions be exactly
followed, no sign will be left that the
catch has ever parted company with
the glove.
