Vancouver,    April    5.     Anti-oriental
ism took a Htrong turn In Vancouver
during the week    end  following    the
shocking disclosures of tho murder of
Mrs.    Charles    Millard,   wife  of  the
('. P, R. ticket agent.   Scores of servants  have   been  discharged,   Chinese
employment agencies are being flooded   with  applications  for employment j '"'

seen for years past,  while In several {
instances complaints have been made
to   the   police   of   assaults   hy   white

Although tiie police have not se-;
cured a signed confession from Jack
Kong, the Chinese servant at tlle Mll-j
lard home, the 17-year-old boy broke
down under severe questioning Satur-,
day morning and gave out the details
of how he committed the crime. He
will be brought up In court Monday
morning ami charged with the crime,
although It is almost sure that a remand will be applied for by the police
ln order to secure more evidence. All
day today Deputy Chief McRae and a
fore of detectives followed up every
possible clue and gleaned more evidence which will be brought out at
tne trial. Some |more bones were
disoovered stowed away in the nooks

Sunbury. Pa., April 5.���When eggs
touched 6H cents a dozen recently
Philip Bradford, of Sunbury, discovered a new form of speculation. It was
revealed in Sejuire Tierney s court
yesterday, when Bradford brought
suit agalnil a neighbor to collect
rental for a hen.
Bradford lias a lot of hens. Instead
eet' collecting his eggs and selling
them he rented out the fowls at 2 rents
a day, the renter winning if the hens
continued  to  lay  properly.
One hen was ronted to James ll.

bulks large beside the knowledge attained through the
regular, recognized channels of teachers and text books.
For this reason the British Columbia parent owes it to his
children to safeguard them as far as possible in their
school associations and, in considering this phase of the
question, he cannot but regard the class-room intimacy
of the oriental as a menace to his own boys and girls.
No healthy-minded British Columbian lad of seventeen years of age could possibly have been capable of the
act to which the young Vancouver Chinese has confessed.
The deed perpetrated by a white boy would have been pre-
ceeded by other evidence of irresponsibility or criminality
that long sine would have shown themselves to his parents
and teachers and called for careful attention and special
But with the oriental, man or boy, it is different. None
of us can fathom the workings of the eastern mind. Its
morals are not our morals; its passions are not our passions and, above all else, it has yet to demonstrate that it
has anything corresponding to the British sense of respect
and value for the honor and lives of others.
Therefore to permit white children to mingle in study
and play with the youthful product of centuries of unbridled passion is exposing them to contamination which
will be bound to make itself felt in the next generation
and the others to follow.
The brutal murder in the Vancouver home was sad
and tragic to the last degree, but the grievous sorrow of
the friends of the innocent victim will not have been altogether in vain if the deed shocks the school boards of the!
province into a realization of the danerer of permitting'
Asiatics to attend school with white children.

than 15,000 cars. The ('(inclusion is
Irresistible that if the growers cling
to the marketing methods that governed in 1H12 they may expect an
avalanche of over-production and under-marketing that will in every
probability involve tbem in disaster
and ruin.
Old Market Methods Failed.
"We bad in 1912," Mr. Sick.is reminds the public, "every method and
means of distribution and marketing,
save one, which we have today.
If the Instruments of marketing and
distribution txlstln* ln 1912 could not
handle 15.000 cars, what can ihey be
i expected to do with the 125,000 cars
i of 1919 ?
"These fac;s present :. problem
which for the last year or two has
been studied by every thoughtful
grower and friend of the fruit growing industry, and we do not knew of
any one, from the officials of the
United States government to thi
humblest Intelligent man among the
growers, who does not agree that the
solution Is found in organization and
centralized  selling."
Mr. Sickels emphasizes this point
by repetition, and it will beat* reiteration: "We do not know of au> one
who now pretends to dlspote thi
statement that the fruit grow ers of
the northwest, if they would save
their industry, must unite In the formation of a strong central selling

Kansas  There   Are   1,200  Women
Tokepa, Kas., April 5.    Kansas has
I.L'ofi women  in  the active management of farms, and  there is not one
who lias not made a success of an agricultural   life   work.     These   women
ate scattered over 54 counties or the
state, a little more than one-hall' the
j counties  in  Kansas.
Most ot the women owning farm
I lands rent the properties and generally
they have an agent to look after af-
I fairs for them. But there are 1,200
j women who are active managers of
j their own farms and some of them
less | are' renters.
The Kansas woman farmer is a scientific farm.'-. When women take
over the stock they realize the necessity of study and work to be successful. It is estimated by the agricultural authorities that 98 per cent, of
the women in the active management
of the farms arc members of the farmers' institutes.

so descriptive that they bnve become
commonly accepted nnd ns such universally known. The correct, word fur

Many women believe them to be

secretions thnt block up the pores nnd
prevent the glands from performing
their functions nnd also collect dust

after steaming the face it should be
anointed with nny good cold cream
and so remolh for nt least fifteen mill

help very much to soften the particles
which, after being scrubbed, no doubt
can bo removed, Comedones often
need a grent deal of treatment before

spots seem almost rooted, but per
slstence will win out, and when dually
the skin clears, astringent lotions
should be frequently used to contract

There is no hurry about It, however.
as, of course, it would be impossible
to do anything this year."
When asked whether he would order

mayor said:
"I shall expect a sincere effort to
comply with the law as to closing. I
don't mean that at 2 o'clock people in

Familiar  Scenes  on   Eric  Canal   Will
Vanish���Electrical   Towing
Albany. N. V . April 4. Many a long
ear will droop and many an accurate
hoof will nudge the thing handiest
to it when the mules which have for
years been used to tow boats In the
Erie canal realize that they have been
drafted ff*r the army of the unemployed; or, at least, are eligible so far as
their further seniles along the canal
ls concerned. They have* been blotted
out of the general canal picture
through the enterprise of a Brooklyn
concern, which has obtained the con-
t:act to tow the boats by means of
motor trucks.
Some of the mules have been walking over the canal route for many
years, and IflB many another poor
donkey who Imagines he is getting
away with the veteran stuff, dragged
the heats so-so and frequently eased a
hoof uppercut to some one just to retain their standing. The miforunate
asset never seemed to realize that
the boats could be moved without
tlie'in and as their confidence grew
thi'ir manners diminished, this trait
being by no means confined to a boat-
yanking jackass.
Just as they had the job reduced
to a tail-swishing cinch, the march
of progress, than which there is no
more impressive parade, comes up
along the Erie canal and leaves them
without a hoof to stand on. All of
which proves that one of the best imitations that a mule can give is that
of a jackass.
Prominent Stockton, Cal.,  Woman  Is
Stockton, Cal., April 5.���Mrs. Ellis
R. Ilarbctt. wife of a prominent physician and surgeon of this city, was shot
and killed today by a Japanese servant while she was in one of the upper
beelrooms of her palatial home in the
suburbs. After killing Mrs. Harbert,
the slayer locked the door to the
room and busied himself gathering up
silverware and other valuables. The
crime was not discovered until tonight
when 'Dr. Harbert returned home.
Finding no one about the living rooms
he made a search of the home, only to
find his wife's body, stiff antl cold,
stretched   upon  the  bedroom  floor.
The servant ,who Is said to be an
, ex-convict, sentenced from San Fran-
| Cisco, later took refuge ln the basement of the houBe, where he lulled
I himself as he was about to be arrest-
jeel. lt was found that the Japanese
j was partly clad only.

Calgary, April 5.���About thirty ele-

, berta  Farmers'    Co Operative    Eleva*
| tor Company, Ltd., this coming season
in the province.
Applications   from   farmers'     locals
I for elevators under the new act, closed  April   1st,  and  there  has  been  a
heavy  bunch  submitted   for  scrutiny.
i Many  have been   In  since  the  begin-
! ning of  the  year,  but as    the    time
| grew shorter they began to pour into
the Calgary offices.    Every opportun-
! ity will be given th<   locals to get in
j their applications, aim  the  directors
I are now waiting to see what the April
I 1st mail wlll bring in order to allow
i of this mail from C. N, R, and Q. T. P.
points which  take  at least two days
on the^road, to reach Calgary. The act
i states   that   applications   mailed     on
April 1st will be legal.
When, however,  the directors  have
| sifted  and   sorted,  and   discovi red   if
1 the   provisions   of   the   Elevator   Act
the i iiave   been   complied   with   In   every

If it is mad.* necessary to creel
thirty this year, it wil Imoan a building program of a quarter of a million

If you were a young and ambitious
story v,liter Just beginning to get a
footing in the literary world and
shoulel win a $10,000 prize for tbe best
story submitted In a contest how
would yon feel?
���tippy? Well, I reckon that feeling
would about cover the Sensation, and
It is exactly how Miss Dalrymple, the
fortunate winner of a recent prize, de-
se lilies ber emotions wheu she heard
tbe good news.
"I wrote 'Diana of tbe Green Van.' "
said Miss Dalrymple, "in six weeks.
One evening while looking over a New
Vork paper I saw the contest advertised, and I Immediately determined to
try for the prize.
"For six weeks I wits dead to the
world and barely alive to my family
nnd friends. Indeed, mother snys she
claims about half of the prize money
as her share for keeping disturbing
sights and sounds out of my life during
the weeks I was scribbling."
Miss Dalrymple Is a New Jersey girl,
having spent most of tier life in the
city of russule Il*r father la a prominent lawyer, n student and tbe owner
of un exceptionally tine library. Miss
Dalrymple attributes her literary
tastes to the splendid opportunity ber
father's well chosen collection of books
afforded ber. At an early age she was
turned loose in the library to browse
among the books nt will. Among tbe
favorite authors of the young woman
are William Locke. De Morgan nnd
letters Farnol, and of the older novelists sbe most admires Dickens, Thack
erny and George Eliot.
Stories for the prize winning contest were entered anonymously, and
Miss Dalrymple sent In twp romances.
When the final sifting of manuscripts
toe.k place the Judges did not know
which of her stories to select us the
winner. The story, however, which
did not win out the publishers have
kept and will bring out next year.
This Is not Miss Dnlrytuple's first experience in prize winning. She has
been the lucky one upon two other occasions, but the checks received were
not nearly so large.
And. speaking of checks, Miss Dalrymple is a good little business woman and will Invest most of her $10-
000 in bonds and mortgages anil will
not use the money for Paris gowns, n
trip around the world or n new motorcar.
This petite, bine eyed girl with a
wealth of wavy golden hair, although
n romance writer, has strong convictions She believes In ���voles for women." hilt at Ibe same time she's u
homey sort eef person, n tine cook and
a housekeeper of marked ability.
Probably no man in the world Is
carrying a iiigge*r loud today than
Huerta. president Of Mexico. His very
life is in danger, if villa and Carranza win, Huerta will he lucky if lie'
can escape from Mexico; and bis relatives and friends wlll share' the .loom

Vet Hu.rta does not worry, according to an article' in the Hartford Cou-

though his Intellect would give way
beneath tin* strain; and ii was freely expected that before long he would
be in an asylum or hospital, If he was.
indeed, in the land of the living. Hut
in the past winter he appears to have
accustomed himself to the' perils of
his position. He walks about freely,
dines publicly in restaurants, roams
in the woods often with no guards
near at hand. He enjoys himself like
any well-to-do Mexican who is assured
of a comfortable Income for tin* re*st
of his life, and who has many friends.
Then' Is nothing in his appearance nor
his daily movements to suggest the
idea ol a man Bitting on s powder

Interested  in  Astronomy.
Ilis chief amusements are dining
with his friends and talking astronomy. Nobody is such a welcome ne-
tjualntance as a man who knows a
good deal about astronomy, anel is
willing to discuss it with the' pre si-
di'iit. He would adjourn a cabinet
meeting any time to hold an astronomical discussion. Sometimes he
dines at home with his family, but almost always some of his friends are
present. If he is not at home he is
at the> house of one' or other of his
close friends, where he will spend the
evening as though be had not a care in
the world. Occasionally in the midst
of these little dinners he will send
out messe ngers to summon his cabinet,
and a meeting will be held In the dining room, the drawing room, upon the
verandah, or wherever he happens to
be when his ministers arrive. Very
iftcn be lakes his evening meal In a
restaurant, usually with two or three
Likeg Restaurant Dinners.
Porflrlo Diaz used to .line in restaurants occasionally, but he made a
most Impressive affair of it. The
manager would be notified beforehand, flags would be got out, carpet
lai i do\ n upon the sidewalk, and a
section set apart with hangings and
Silken cords for the august diner.
When he arrived the orchestra would
plav the national anthem and the diners would rise. When Diaz left the
ceremony would he repeated, Huerta.
however,   drops   In   like   an   ordinary
] guest. The orchestra does not stop
playing.    Nobody  arises.    He  walks
Ito a table* and seats himself with his
friends, and beyond a little craning
of necks on tin- pari of the other
guests  to  see  win.  the   presld. lit has
| with bim tonight, no notice Is taken.
On more than one occasion it is said
that cabinet meetings have been held
ill cafes,  the  whim seizing the pjvsi-
| dent, who would send messengers for
bis advisors, on  the spot.
Queer Cabinet Meetings.
Huerta bad not been in office long
before be wearied of the regular cabi-
net meetings, held al Fixed houn In
the national palace. He announced
that he' would hold the meetings when
and wh"re lie wanted Ihem. so a member of Huerta's cabinet, Ilk., a fireman, has in bold himself iu readiness
for a sudden call at any hour of the'
day or night. As remark.il, the
meeting may be held In a private
house, in Huerta's own home, or In a.
restaurant or cafe, A favorite spot i*.
In the grounds of Chapultepec castle.
The ministers are notified that at a
certain time the president will expect
le. see them in the woods. Them begins a game like* bide ami seek. The
president cues to the ground in his
automobile. The ministers follow,
but since the) dp not know in which
pari of the vast park he will be waiting, they have to scout through th����
wooels until tln'.v se*e* hitn Then the
president and bis advisers will leave
their cars and, sitting down on a rustic bench, ot on tbe grass, will discuss affairs of state. Not very long
ago. in the midst of one e>f these meetings, Nelson O'Sliaitienessy drove by.
The pr. sid. nt wished to speak te. him,
and, leaving his ministers '.wilt for
half an hour's drive with the American charg,. d'affaires Afterwards he
returned to his colleagues, who had
patiently waite.l for blm, and who
would have* heen expected to wait If
he had been away all afternoon.
Democratic Autocrat.
The ugh Huerta gets through a great
deal of work in the course of a week,
he   we.sleM   much      time,   because   ll.'   is
bound by no rules. He works by fits
anil starts, sometimes spending the
whole day In Idleness, and at other
times toiling through more than half
the night. His whims are the law In
Mexico City, for not only his cabinet.
but for bis famll) anil the general
public. Though he Is an autocrat in
this sense, he Is ve*ry democratic in
other matter.; Dally he spends an
hour or so walking up and down the
sidewalk in front of his bouse, chatting with passers-by, getting tbelr
opinion* and usually disregarding
tbem. Though he* must know that in
the city there are thousands of persons who would like to hear of his
death, and many persons who would
not hesitate from assassinating him.
he takes no obvious precautions. He
has been president for a year and
seems to be growing younger. His
terrific experiences appear to have
left no new line upon his face.
