making the lot of those who are upon the lard very far
from being a bed of roses.
Therefore the expressed determination to take one
step in the right direction, namely to provide an adequate
market here for all that can be precluded in the valley and
in time in the province, is a matter upon which they may
be heartily congratulated. The doings of the new standing

Granted we have the idea of co-operation rooted firmly in our heads, the next thing is to have men who will
lake the initiative and work out the details of this co-'
operation. One thing appears certain and. that is that
the farmers themselves must get together. This we trust
will be brought about through the agency of the valley
boards of trade, who are to be approached by the committee named above.
One cheering thought in the evolution of British com-)

Ily Charles  Hanson Towne In Colliers,
n an Interesting symposium article on the subject publish-
I d in The Hook Monthly, "is to havi
nothing to read, for I can enjoy a
seedmen's CStalOUge or a cookery-
book." Fielding is her favorite novelist, and George Eliot she knows Ly
In art. "Bul Dickens nud muffins can
still yield a thrill, though, for that,
nothing I have ever read can approach Wilkie Collins' 'Moonstone.'"
"1 personally," writes Miss Elinor
Glyn, "hardly ever read a novel from
one year's end to another, and do not
know what other novelists like. Any-
ihings. 1 should think, as a change
from their own. At leaEt, that would
be my view IT I had time to read any."
Mrs. W. K. Clifford also confesses
that she reads very few novels- "only
those written by my friends, or that 1 w
am told are exceptionally good, I have
been unexpectedly delighted
With quite a short one called "The
Temple on Ihe Hill," by Elsa de Szasz
���a really wonderful achievement, and
in English, for a young Hungarian
"That Amazing Book, the Bible."
Biography is the favorite reading of
Miss Beatrice Harraden, and the
stories told by Thomas Hardy and
Jane Austen her favorite novels. "And,
of course, George Meredith's poems
and Shelley, and, of course, that
amazing book, the Bible. Rut I ddn't
read nearly as much aB I used to do.
For the moment active life interests
me more than books, and 1 learn
more by taking part in at than by
contemplating It."
Another great admirer of Thomas
Hardy's works is Mrs ('. N. Williamson, who. referring to her husband and
herself says that they are both united
even in their love for certain authors.
"We both care more for George Meredith's novels than any other.. A most
Olympic person! We are agreed, too,
on the subject of Hardy's earlier novels, and could never read 'Far From
the  Madding Crowd' too often.
I am a great read of novels, though,
and  my husband isn't.    I like to keep
I up with what ia going on In the world
���of novels, ami whenever i see a splendid notice of a new hook 1 buy it.
Sometimes, alas, the result Is rather
disappointing;   hut  1  have had   great

Mine. Alhnnesl confessed that she is

taste is catholic, "But I have moods

A drama entitled "Judith" has been

and the performance will take place at

House, on Tuesday night, when Lady
Constance will dance the part of Judith. The tickets were all sold days
ago, mostly to a high-class public.
Since her arrival ln Vienna, Lady
Constance Stewart-Utchardson has
been a constant and much desired
guest tn the families of the Austrian
nobility, which Is known to be the
most exclusive ln the world.
The drama of "Judith," is based on

number of old Assyrian and Hebrew
melodies. There are five principals, a

Effectiveness  As a Medium-
Daily Home Confident
(From an address delivered by F. St John Richards
for the Six-Point League, of New York, before the Convention of the Association of American Advertisers:)
We believe daily newspaper advertising to be pre-eminent because it is universal, prompt, flexible, effective
and economical.
By universal and prompt I mean that any desired selling story can be told in any town or city in any section of
the country in one day by use of the proper choice of daily
newspapers. Any individual in the towns and cities of
the selected territory who does not read some daily newspaper would not be of much use to you or any other advertiser.
Flexible because selected classes in the desired territory can be reached by choosing such papers as directly
appeal to the kind of readers you need- You have no
fear of misdirected efforts.
Newspaper advertising is at all times under direct
control of the advertiser. It may be started tomorrow in
one town or everywhere. It may be stopped as quickly if
need arises. It is most effective when it is timely, and although that phase of it properly belongs to a consideration of proper use of newspapers, rather than a consideration of their value, I cannot resist the impulse to say that
no advertising medium offers such a favorable opportunity for timely advertising as the newspaper.
If a great fire destroys a town, advertisers of fireproof building material tell their story and point a moral
in the same issue containing the news story; a story of a
bank robbery suggests surety company advertising; a hot
summer day with sunstrokes suggests cooling drinks,
while snow and sleet on the streets inspires the automobile
tire advertisers to tell us about wobbly treads, etc.
Now if it is admitted that daily newspapers are read
by everyone worth reaching and that an advertiser may
choose his readers in any desired territory by a judicious
choice of papers, in other words, if you reach them effectively.
Are you welcome visitors or do you force yourself upon them ?
When you advertise in newspapers, do not your readers invite you to come to see them and pay for the privilege of welcoming you ?
Do they not usher you into their homes and libraries
and dining rooms and introduce you to their wives and
Can you find a more effective medium than the colr-
umns of the favorite daily newspaper?
Can you have a better introduction than that given'
by a welcome daily visitor, friend, and confidant?
The effectiveness of all advertising is measured by
the confidence and belief inspired thereby. This introduction by a favorite daily newspaper invites the readers'
confidence for you.
Now as to economy. Newspaper space can be bought
at prices ranging from one cent to one-tenth of a cent per
line per thousand and lower. Probably one-fifth of a
cent would be a fair average. At the lower price a ten-
line advertisement would be carried to a thousand homes
for a cent. But low price does not in itself always mean
If the space bought for one-fifth of a cent were circulated in territory unsuited for any reason to the advertiser's needs or opportunities, that would be a high price.
Newspapers, however, allow the advertiser to select suitable territory, as we have seen, so that the circulation he
pays for is where he wants it, and the low cost thereby
becomes economical.
Now the most amazing thing about newspaper advertising is that its value is universally admitted, although
subconsciously in some cases. - Even the most pronounced
advocate of some other medium will turn to the newspaper when he has some acute personal need, which brings
from him instinctive expression and immediate action.
Take the elementary needs of life. If you want a
cook, where do you advertise?
If you lose a valuable dog or your pocketbook, or in
any of the many emergencies where you must have quick
action, which of you would neglect the newspaper?
Is not your business need as important and as urgent
as these?
Is the principle different?
Gentlemen, two and two make four. That isn't new,
but its true.

Mr. Pugsley next commented upon*

Mr. E. M. McDonald declared that
he hod hundreds of capable riveters

Mr. Pugsley contended that no difficulty would be experienced at any j

had control of the    Brockton    Point
grounds for the paBt   26    years,    tbe
directors of the Brockton Point Ama-

a request to the city council for the
latter to again  tako over control of

j tlon of all liability of rentals overdue.
It Is believed that the request wlll

Vancouver and Westminster Thinking
Seriously of Quitting C. A. A. U.
In Favor of the D. F. A.
Within a very short time the soccer
players of liritish Columbia will settle
once and for all whether ihe clubs
shall affiliate with the Dominion Koot-
ball Association, the newly organized
body which will cater to the wants
of football alone and sever all connection with the C. A. A. U. which
carries with it the B. C. A. A. U., a
minor body of the Canadian Union.
The matter waB discussed in Vancouver on TueBday evening by the
delegates of the Senior Amateur Soc
cer League and while no action was
taken, enough ground was covered tc
give the delegates an insight as tc
the bom-fits and perhaps some disadvantages which might occur should
they decide to cast oil from the amateur union.
Up to the present time tlie amateur
union as far as soccer football h
concerned, has been one huge joke.

Cooking In Casserole Dishes Give*
Food a Nice Flavor.
The high cost of living Is u problem
that Is troubling many a wise person
and seems to overtax the poor housewife especially, The meal question Is
one of the most serious, as the Item
cuts are uluiost as expensive as Jewels, nnd the Cheaper cuts if cooked in
the ordinary way are so tough us to be
unlit tu eat.
There Is a solution to this problem.
it is this: Buy the cheaper cuts entirely und cook them "en casserole." Tbls
term may frighten tbe home cook, wbo
avoids French dishes as she wuuld a
Chinese puzzle, but there la nothing nt
nil terrifying about this style uf cooking tf one understands the art.
Fur the henoflt uf those who hnve
never used these "little brawn servants" let it be known that a casserole
set consists of one good sized covered
baking dish large enough fur a four or
five pound cut of meut, two open bilking bowls that may be used for such
articles as have to bo browned while
cooking and so need not be covered
and six squat brown "cocottes," or Individual dishes. The first cost of tbis
set will be saved a hundred times over
by the Inexpensive but delicious dishes
derived frum Its use.
All foods better for long, slow cooking
should lie prepared in one uf these tire-
proof covered dishes Tor Instance,
take an ordinary hot roast. It Is delirious cooked in a casserole.
t'se a roast from the round several
Im lies thick or any lean cul of beet,
for the casserole is to mnke it tender.
Willi a sharp knife make an Incision

Western Hemlock's Value
Greater Than Thought
A great development along this tine
may be looked for when British Columbia consumers realize the true
value of the wood, and cease wasting
it at present.

Victoria, March 1'-!.- The Britibh
Columbia Forest Service hus data
showing that western hemlock which
Ib being cut In increasing quantities
on the coast, is a much more valuable
timber than was heretofore thought.
The sale ls increasing throughout
the province, some companies having
placed on the prairie market iu successful competition With Douglas fir,
on account of the lower freight rate
and the relatively smaller danRer of
splitting In nailing This latter reason makes it acceptable for jointing
and siding. At present the principal
use of hemlock In British Columbia
is In pulp manufacture, great areas
in the north being cut over to supply
this growing industry.
Authentic date Is lacking with regard to the durability of western
hemlock as compared with Douglas
fir and other woods. The general
impression Is that Douglas fir is the
more durable. A few experiments
made to determine the adaptability of
western hemlock to treatment with
liquid preservatives indicate that, as
compared to Douglas fir, it offers
about the same resistance to impregnation across the grain, but that It Is
easier to penetrate along the grain.
All Round Utility.
Wcsti rn hemlock Is well suited for
use in all but the heaviest construction work, as shown by results of
tests which have heen made, but up
to the present time it has had a llm-
ted use in bridges and tretles. It
has been used in some instances for
caisson construction.
A considerable amount is cut into
cross ties, Many of the western railroads use Douglas fir, western larch,
redwood and weBtern hemlock exclusively for tie material. A large percentage of those ties are laid without preservative treatment. Occa-
lonally it is cut into telephone or telegraph poles, but Its use in this form
has heen very limited.
ll has the requisite strength for
pole use and grows In such dimensions as to make it very suitable [or
this class of work. With a good treatment with Borne efficient preserving
fuid it should give good service as a
pole material.
Satisfactory Piling.
Though practically all piling in the
province Ib of Douglas fir. western
hemlock is used to a limited extent,
however, for this class of work and
lias apparently given satisfaction.
In liouse construction it is used n
great deal as a framing material Kor
'his class of work it serves as well as
Douglas fir, and locally commands the
same price. Western hemlock dimension stock in cargo shipments commands a lower price, however, than
Douglas fir, because of the prejudice
which exists against it.
When rut edge grain it makes   an
excellent flooring material.   It finishes
smoothly on account   of tho   uniform
texture of the wood and it also wears,
evenly.    It is not suitable for use   In
damp places on account of Its tendency
to warp under such conditions.
Beautiful    Finish.
As  a finish  lumber it has the advantage ot containing   practically no
oitch; it has a beautiful  grain, works
smoothly,   takes    Btain    readily,    and
when properly dried, will not shrink
ir swell materially under normal con
ditions. It presents a comparatively
hard surface and consequently doeB
, not mar easily.
Western hemlock slabs and edgings
are manufactured, into lath, and as a
j lath material ilTiKcqually as valuable
as Douglas fir'5r"other wood, lu this
form there is no distinction made an
: to species,  all pieces   of   a  suitable
1 form to make lath being thrown in together and used indiscriminately.
j It is used to a large extent for barrels and boxes for shipping foodstuffs.
For this purpose it serves admirably,
since wood ls odorless and tasteless.

If you were to be taken away
now, would lt be easy for some
one else to adminster your business and estate?
Probably not, and that is a
very good reason why you
should immediately make a Will
and appoint thla Company Executor.
When the time comes to adminster an estate, the average
man without experience hardly
knows where to Btart.
He gpents time and money
learning, and even then regrets
the time taken from his own
personal affairs.
Maybe the estate may require
a little money to finance for a
short period, and the average
man needs all his capital and
credit  in his own business.
How long would It take until
your business aud investments
were badly disorganized or Involved if not carefully looked
after, or in the hands of ono
yiithout the proper facilities.
It Is just theso very troubles
experienced in so many cases
that led the requirement and
formation of Trust   Companies.
The Dominion Trust Company
has paid up capital aud surplus
of $2,500,00(1.00.
Its business is to act as executor, and uny other business It
does Is quite us much a side line
to It ub llie handling of estates
is to the private executor.
It has the knowledge, ability,
reliability, capital, energy, experience, lo handle estates in
tin* ablest possible manner,
That is the kind of executor you
should have
