The departure of Sir Charles Tupper from our neighborhood is worthy of more than passing comment, but
here we cannot do more than add our token of respect
and admiration for the last of the fathers of confederation who is left alive in this great Dominion which will
for all time stand as a monument to his and their endeavors.
Sir Charles was a worker. He dared to do things, and,
ignoring all wailings of those who would go back-ward.
marched straight onward to a glorious achievement. In
1881 Sir Cbarics rode from New Westminster to the solitary house that occupied the district where Vancouver;
now stands. Today he is speeding back to England on the! President cnncr" Cleveland'
line whose construction was in a large measure due to his
statesmanship and foresight.
We wish him God speed, and mav the evening if hi.-
days in "the land of his fathers" be a lengthv one.

formal occasions, for a mother at a

the federal authorities and Ihe city,
the intention of which is to bring the

The chief feature of this agreement
is that if it is accepted by all parties
the city v"ill be given full sanitary

Mr. lloss on Sunday evening in the

ln the new Liquor License bylaw
���discussed yesterday afternoon at a
special meeting of the council, many
new regulations with respect to the;
manner in which saloons, hotels,
wholesale liquor houses, distilleries
-should be conducted are contained.
The new measure which on finally
passing automatically repeals the old
Liquor License bylaw, einbouiea generally the amendments made to the
provincial act al the recent session of
the legislature though inclusions and
alterations have been made to suit
local conditions.
The bylaw provides that bartenders
be licensed, that no liquor be sold to
an Intoxicutcd person, an habitual
drunkard, any woman or any youth
under the age of 18: that no gambling
or unlawful game be carried on in the
premises of a licensee; that no license
foe granted In the vicinity of a hospital, school or church, nor to or for
the benefit of any person who is a
mamber of the licensing board; that
no practising chemist or druggist
���shall sell liquor for strictly medicinal
purposes in packages of more than six

One interesting clause reads: "From

Chicago. April 9.���Vice-President
Thomas lt. Marshall praises the
honesty of organized baseball in a
letter received today by Han B. John-
Bon, president of the American league.
After acknowledging the receipt of an
American league pass, the vice-president says:
"I am deeply Interested In baseball
because lt ls a fascinating game, because lt Is the great American sport,
and because It sets an example to
the business and professional men of
America, which is as valuable as the
preachments of the politicians, namely, that no success Is lasting or permanently valuable which does not result from playing the game on the
square. The dirt accumulated upon
tlle baseball diamond is clean. A
Democrat cannot say that for all
other diamonds in America."
the fans and players of the old circuit are talking of erecting a fitting
memorial in his honor. Hulbert was
elected to tho presidency of the oldest
major league shortly after Its organization In 1876, and held the office un
til hiB death.
During his incumbency the gamblers
threatened to kill baseball, just as
they have succeeded in abolishing racing in the United States, and only the
genius and lirm and unbending attitude of President Hulbert saved the
professional game from dying In Infancy. Chicago certainly owes.Hulbert a memorial, for, next to baseball,
that city held llrst place ln his affections.
"I would rather be a lamp post In
Chicago than the mayor of any other
city on the face of the globe," Hulbert used to say.

r.n Englishman's lawn and that of an
American's la not nlta-gether a matter
of a few hundred years of rolling.
There Is much In the.knowing how to

fart that In Kngland all the land Is

not troubled by weed grown vacant

A fine lawn is also necessary to
give the proper setting to a house
that every care should be exercised
lo get 11 right in the beginning. Much
depends on the proper preparation of
the soil and the needing���after that
eternal vigilance ls the price of success.
The first essential is to have a plea
sant contour. Aljout new buildings
the ground near the foundations ls
consequently tbe seed should net be
���own until the ground has nettled as
much as it can and the permanent
grade established with the long slope
awny frnm Ihe foundations. If the
land ls hard clay nr the placo Is low
It Is well lo underdraln at frequent
Intervals, The grass roots must have
an opportunity to run deep Into the
soil or th.-y wlll not get eii'mgli moisture in dry weather. For this reason
the Boll should be made loose nnd
Deep Soil is Necessary.
If thi- ground Is not liberally supplied wllh lininiiH It Is well to spud"
nr plow In a liln-rnl amount of well
rotted manure. It should be worked
Into the soil to the depth of at least
one fool If Ihe subsoil Is nenr lhe
surface the area shnld be spaded two
or  three  spades  deep.
On newly made areas It is well to
grade  the land  In   the  fall,  allowing
It to settle through the winter. Then
if the surface remains even, rake it
over and sow lhe grass seed In February, or as soiin as tlm weather will
licrmli. To Induce a quick growth n
lop dressing ut some good commercial
fertiliser should be used when the
Seeds ore sown.
It Is Ihe general opinion of experts
that a mixture of lawn grass seeds Is
far better Ihan any une kind. In every
j locality there are reliable seed rotn-
1 panics who have experts studying and
experimenting with seed mixtures, and
It Ib thn safest course for the amateur
to seek and follow the ndvlce of these
experts. Kentucky Illue Or-ass, Creeping Rent. Crested Dog's tall. Hed Top
and various other grasses are used
separately, but a mixture of fine leaved grasses Is really betlcr than any
one kind, for they will grow In together and produce a greener effect
at all times. Above all do not practice false economy by sowing sparingly. One pound of seed to nbout fifteen Bqo-ire feet In nbout right.
Weeds May Be Expected.
The weeds probably will come ui
thickly the first Beason. especially If
Ibe land Is rich, llut these are to be
expected, not from the seed, if tt Is
clean, but from seeds thnt are In the
soil and from Uiobc t.lown hv tlie wlud
Frequent cutting or mnw'ng will k;ll
most weeds: others muss be cnrefullv
dug out. If vou will scatter a few
fresh seeds where you hnve i-emoved
weeds,  you  will  soon bnv> all  grnss.
It Is rare tbat a perfectly good nnd
unlfcrm wi Is secured from one sowing, espcclaly if the soil varies ln different parts of the area. If the surface
contour is satisfactory. H Is unwise
to dig up the spots on which the seeds
has not caught. It Is better to rake
them over, putting on a little commercial fertilizer rich in nitrogen, and sow
more so.d When weeds are trouble-
s'Mne It Is usually an evidence that
there ls   not   enough   grass.
MOW the lawn freonently when it
Is growing rapidly. In the fall mow
lens frequently and let 11 go Into Hie
winter with a long coat of grass. Do
not rake off the cuttings, hut let them
settle among the roots of the grass
nnd form a nnlurnl mulch. It Is a sad
mislnke to rake off every bit cf humus
in Hie fall nnd then pile on a lot ef

Frequent Sprinkling Mistake,
Don't "sprinkle" the lawn. A properly made lawn will need watering
