of tbe graveyard which constituted a
disgrace to present day civilization.

brief are the
monger story cooked up again." Such in brief are
ejaculations of the two great schools of thought if such
they may be called, upon the occasions when German enterprise startles a world that is arming to the teeth and
hoping for peace.
Hul whichever of these animadversions may have the
greater percentage of truth, it is certain that the recent
declarations of the policy of the Kaiser in respect to further extensions of the German army, taken in conjunction
with France's wave of military enthusiasm, the war preparations of Austria and Russia, all tend to make the
money markets of the world uneasy, and consequently the
utterances of the European warlord have a very real significance to us by the banks of the Fraser.
Por the moment interest in the sphere of armaments
has changed from the sea and the air to the land, but the
prospect of a speeding-up in the race of military expenditures between Germany and France is not reassuring.
Here again money talks, but so do men and while France is
the wealthier of the two nations, the population of Germany is double that of France.
It, had been hoped that with the settlement of the Balkan trouble within guessing distance the world, outside
the cauldron of Mexico, would be free from thc boom of
guns, and that consequently the purse strings of the nations of the old world would again be loosened for the de-
pment of the new. But today the Balkan states appear
to be fighting as merrily as ever and once more the shadow of that Armageddon which has long beea prophesied
looms upon the horizon of 1913.
It may pass and it may not. In the latter eventuality
we in Canada will have much to suffer, not only in things
material but in that pride of people who are scarcely
id into a nation. For we have not taken our place
in line with the other daughter nations of the British Isles
in respect to national defence, a course of action which.
under present conditions, is as necessary to the right progress of a young nation as is a knowledge of how to defend

about  five  weeks'  minor operations
would make  it ready  for tbe Tsar.
Forbidden to Talk,
lt was boluved that Nicholas, when
ho came to Petersburg to watch the
waters blessed on January   19, would
take up residence and have a brilliant   lynching
season,   which  would end only   when '''"':'' '"
he left lu  early  summer for Bcaaide
1'oterhof.
This atory wus made more probable
by an official warning to the newspu
pera that tbey must not write aboil'
tbo return to Petersburg at all. It
is a  rule  that  when   newspapers are
i. ri>.ud,-a to dismiss Nicholas1 move
ments. then something is on foot
So  lhal   everyone  knew   that,  after
���light years' absence   Russia's   Tsar
would return; and loyal citizens began to thing of laying In stocks" of
flags, Ixiiuti.i and other things which
traditionally murk every Imperial pro-
gresa.
Next descended on the red stucco
palace a host of painters,  plasterers
carpenters, and locksmiths.   The big
canvas sheet which for four years has
myseriously decked the east skle of
tho   Hermitage     gallery     was
without saying that  it  had fe'led th
plan of Nicholas to leave Tsarkoe-"!,
Perhaps     it  has  not   foiled  It.    Th'
Winter palace clique Is not eai'lv d
fea-ed.  and  it   is    quite    capable    of
flood,    fire,    disease,  an'
tranquil Tsarkoe Selo.    s

Facts Leak Out.
While people were discussing thla
mystery, they heard that the architect Rlelcholf hud cut bis throat. Thai
news could not be kept out of thc
newspapers. And ether facts have
since leaked out. It appears that,
from the moment tbe report was presented thai lhe Winter palace was fit
for habitation, everything that happen
rd went to prove that   it   wiis not fit.
I'utiatin umi Rletchkoff had hope

Rave a nasty rebuke to the Innocent
Rletchkoff; and the Innocent Wetcb*
keff would nol  survive it.
The fact was that the Winter pul-
nee. after It's eight years' sleep, my-
terioiisly woke up. And in a queer
way. Everything began to go wrong.
Within a week of It becoming known
that Nicholas would return, u six-foot
deep flood wuh discovered In the cellars of the palace bridge corner, near
which Nicholas was lo reside. The
Neva, said Ihe fearful ones, hnd again
tot through the foundations. Hut
whMl a surveyor had examined the
cellars he found that the wnler had
not come from the Neva, but from u
lap that had culpably left open for
nearly a week.
Negligence, said everyone, nnd the
FTvanls responsible, were rebuked.
Things looked had for Nicholas' return, fer within a week, the dump
rose   Into   the   walls  of   his   destined
rttidv.   Evidently   some   Inscrutable
force was working to prevent the
yearned for return to the Winter pal
ace.

Rome, March 10. The Pope has dl-
'reeled that a series of Celebrations
shull be held 111 Rome this month, and
the following months of the present
year, to commemorate the sixteen-
hundredth anniversary of the promulgation of the Edict of Milan, which
the Holy See regards as one of the
great events In the history of Christianity.
This famous Edict was Issued by
the Emperors t'onstaiitlne und Llci-
Hus, Murch, 313, on the occasion when
t'onstaiitlne si tight to cement hiB political alliance with bis Imperial colleague by marrying his half-sister,
Constantla, the friend and correspondent of the learned BuBeblUB, to the
savage Harlan  soldli r.
The friendship of the two sovereigns endured but a few months. Wnr
broke out between them in 314, and
the struggle ended ln the execution,
or the murder, of LlclnlUB at Salonika
in 320.
|    lt ls not, however, to its effect upon
' the relations of the rival competitors
for the empire that the meeting   at
Milan owes its consequence In the an-
Inals of Latin Christianity.   The Edict
of March, 313, may be looked upon as
marking the final clo6e of the period

speaking at Manchester yesterday,
strongly supported the territorials,
whom he asserted were a fine body
of men, and undeserving of the criticisms which had recently becn levelled
at tbem.
In strong terms he denounced the
attacks on the territorials as attempts
to stampede thc country into adopting conscription. This was an Infamous crime which the Liberals would
strenuously resist.
The country wns absolutely safe
from any possibility ot Invasion, and
the territorials were carrying out
what was expected of them, concluded
the Junior lord.

J. C. GWYNN,
District Registrar of Titles
Land  Registry Office,
New Westminster, B.C., February
2Sth, 1913.
London, March 10. -In the present
critical situation of European politics
tho diplomats of France, Britain, Russia and Germany are ull eagerly
watching each other to see who shall
take the first step.
France's spirited response to the
proposal of military aggrandisement
by Germany haa done more towards
���ensuring peace today and war tomorrow than any diplomatic move In
living recollection. On the other
hand, (lerinany's*iiiio explanation as
to the causes of her enormous outlay
and increase of a "peace" army has
deceived nobody.
A British diplomat now home on a
furlough, discussing the electric current imparted to tho situation hy the
accession of M. Polncare to the
French presidency, says:
"It Is admitted by all acquainted
with the currents of diplomacy In
Europe that the coming of Polncare
put more electricity into the Franco-
German situation than has been there
in many years.
The appointment of Delcasse, an
avowed partisan of the policy of revenge, as ambassador to St. Petersburg constituted nothing less than a
direct challenge to Germany, the answer to which, it Is noteworthy, has
not yet been given and which when It
comes, may stagger the world with Its
suddenness.
Lull   Before   Storm?
"Either," said the diplomat who
holds a secretarial rank in the service, "Germany judges that in view
of the momentous policy foreshadowed hy Delcasse's appointment, discretion is at this moment her widest
policy, or alternatively, Germany may
simply be observing a political silence
while finally giving a careful look to
her offensive and defensive equip
ment.
That Germany, which in 11106 insisted ou the dismissal of Delcasse as
a result of the Moroccan embrogllo,
giving France an alternative in war,
should now quietly eat humble pie in
the face of this virtual defy from the
new head of the French republic, is at
the present moment, a matter of undisguised amazement to all the chancellories of the world.
"Even by itself It would have been
sufficient to arouse the ever-slumbering Francophobln of the Germans, but
coining as it did, on the announcement
that something like $100,000,000 was
lo be spent In strengthening the
French land forces, the policy of Polnoare is susceptible of only one explanation -namely, that whereas a certain
measure of prudent passivity characterized the recent French Government
the present head of the republic
means, at least, to try to reconquer
for France some of her lost prestige
in the concert of the powers, as well
as to break the political power of Berlin in Europe, objects whose accomplishment must involve a resort to
arms.
"The situation," he continued, "remains at present principally dependent on Germany's action
"Will the Berlin wnr party let pass
forever their undoubted chance to
force the kaiser Into war? If Germany postpones the occasion till later
It will be only to find a French army
far better prepared to meet her th>n
the present French army Is.
Now   Is  Time.
"Germany, If she acts soon, will also he certainly able to count on half
of Austria and Italy as against any
move by the Russians toward protecting their slow brethren In the Balkans,
a certainty which bicomes continually j
weaker as the old kaiser of Austria be-;
comes older and the victorious Balkans continue to loom on the horizon
as a more practicable possibility
'Indeed," continued the diplomat,!
"never within the past ten years, not I
even during the Dreyfus and Moroccan crises, has a Franco-German war
been nearer In sight. Germany builds
confidently on two reasons- -namely,
first, that England's policy with regard to the French amounts merely
to a determination to use the French
army and navy should events ever
force that necessity; second, that
Kngland Is determined to be no party
to any triple alliance which would
involve her, should one of the constituent parties otlnr than herself Le at-
tackul.
In other words, Germany feels Ihat
Britain's ri gard for France is essentially selfish and that any upheaval
Involving France ns a principal will
find   Albion  as  perfidious  as  ever."
AN EMPRESS II A TEMPER.
Eugenie's    Dramatic    Deicent    Upon
tht  CaLinct  Council.
In Frederic Loiiee'j "Women oi the
Seconil Empire'.' the author   tells n
sentjf onal ..tory ol Empress Eugenie
of . lance. It concerns a pressing
political matter, ono <d church nml
���state. Because the empress felt
strongly on it the emperor (eared lest
sll" should endeavor to influence the
deliberatio       of   llie   cabinet  coiihcil
by appearing In person. Accordingly
he gave orders that the meeting
should he kept secret from her. M
fcollos snys: "Hut the matter so carefully concetled was already known
to her, nnd, acting on the first impulse of her fury Spanish temperament, lioiling over with anger, she
flew rather ban walked to the council chamber. A sentry had been
placed at the door with orders to allow ni one to pass. He opposed tlie
entrance ni the ImpetUOUl sovereign.
" 'I wish to enter. Stand buck!'
she crie.l angrily, Finding himself
in a norril lo quandary between the
order.; he bad  received  ami  his four
oi burling his empress, the guardsman, between his gallant./ to her
se.\ and liis fidelity to thc word oi
command, .-ll at the feet ol Ell-
genie with ��� i bayonet laid across the
doorway.
" 'Vour Majesty.' he said, 'no one
may pass,  by  order of the emperor.'
" 'We shall see,' replii-d Eugenie,
and without more ado she leaped
over the sentry's bayonet, burst
open the door nnd entered tlie Council chamber with the violence of a
whirlwind. The emperor wns presidio -. grnvi ar.,1 Imperturbable, he
alone having hit head covered In the
presence ot his respectful and attentive ministers.
"But the sovereign failed to Impose
rcipeot on his angry wife, who saw
in him only thc man and the husband, Going stniiL-lit up to him. with
a backhanded blow slie knocked ofl
hi; hat, then, without a word, withdrew as sh- Imd entered leaving llie
ministers dumb w ith surprise and consternation."

What   Is   a   Gentleman?
The Chief Scout bas  Ihe following
to say cn "What Is a Gentleman?"
"Many people are Inclined to think
that the word 'gentleman' means a
man who was born rich, and that a
boy brought up at expensive bcIiooIb
and colleges must, therefore, be a
gentleman when he bus grown up.
But this does not always follow.
"A  fellow  who is  lucky enough   to
hnve been brought up ln that way has
certainly   bettor  chances  of  being   a
gentleman than many a poor boy has,
but at the same time a poor boy can
be just as good a gentleman as a rich
one. '
"A  gentleman   Is  what   the   word
says;  he is a man, but a gentle man,
I not   n   rough,  bullying,   coarse   cus-
I tomer,  but a fellow  wbo, thougli  big
laud strong, can he kind and chivalrous
and helpful lo other people.
"Au  good  a  sample   as   any  of   a
;'gentleman' Is the London policeman
lie is al all times courteous and help
j ful to others, even to the extent of be-
| Ing ready to risk his life at any moment to save people In ciibos of accidents,  or   to    protect    them    against
rough  handling,  and   be  treats   rich
and poor, old and young, with   equal
attention    nnd    patience,    and    good
humor."   The Scout.

Bird Tribunal!.
Ravens, starlings nni crow? nre believed lo bold courts ol justice to mete
oot punishment In offenders. Sometimes they asaenili! ��� in gp'st numbers,
as if thoy would give Croat dignity to
thc occasion. The trial sometimes apparently endures for many days. Some
Ulrda sit nt the oonclsve with lowered
heads, some tn'rely cock their bonis
cn t branches and look crave, whi'.e
others are most garrulous nnd fill the
ii..- with t'ieir complaints. Naturalist,
studying those strange proceedings

Sletpor Sharks.
Tl groat sleeper shark is a most
s ������ :' '���. gluttonous species���as, in fact
nre most of the sharks���ard spends
tr.',.-t oi its time dozing on the suriace
oi the s-a. When aroused or hungry
it nttneks whales, porpoises, or. in
fact, anything 1 can Hnd. and b'tes
f-'-n its victim- with its knit'*
like t-eth. At such tines it seems
perfectly oblivious to pain or {right
and can be backed wiih knives nnd
pierce! with spears without paying
tli" least nltention or si-'tiling to take
any notice. This savnge creature
reacbes a length of thirty to forty feel
and is fully ns large and even more
formidable than are the true man
citing sharks.
Roman Senate.
The Roman senate was a judicial
and legislative body and for several
centur.es numbered .'100 men, carefully
selected Iroin tlie patricians. The majority oi votes decided a question, and
the order in which the senators spoke
and voted was determined by their
rank. Their decisions, called senatus
consu'.ta, were the supreme low of the
repulilio, (nun which, of course, there
was i ii appeal. After the establish-
merit of the empire the character ol
the senate was greatly lowered, snd
at bust it liecamo simply the *Uki1 of the
emperor, to do his bidding regardless
ol the consequences.

The Hoy Scouts of America In La
Pas, Bolivia, are probably the highest boy scouts In the world. They
live In a place 12,600 feet above the
i**i level. "If there are troops at a
higher altitude," writes ('. A. Irle, the
scout master, "please let us know
where they are."
Because of the altitude the scouting
In Bolivia is carried on under entirely
different conditions than In almost
any part of the world. Concerning
this work.  Scout  Master Irle writes:
"We have some advantages and
some disadvantages. The mountains
are near us and we find hills of 2,000
and 3,000 feet all around us. We have
taken several hikes to the hills and
one trip to the mountains. You must
remember that at this altitude the air
is much lighter than at sea level and
one halts oftener on a climb than In
the United States.
Lack   cf   Fuel.
"Our biggest hindrance to a good
time on hikes and camping trips here
is tbe lack of fuel. We have no trees
except a few grown in the yards. The
ground is nearly barren except for
some tough grasses and cactus plants
This lack of good fuel makes il hard
lo do any cooking. We have very little use for a hatchet. We have to do
what cooking we do over grass and
weeds that we can gather. Sometimes
we have jolly times with our fires,
especially after damp weather. After
we get them going they take a lot of
coaxing and blowing. Again our rare
atmosphere has to be reckoned wtth,
for it does not contain very much
oxygi n. and as you know oxygen is
what makes the fire burn. We also
are denied the pleasure of the evening camp fire.
Silent    Pleasure.
"You boys all know the silent pleasure of a bonfire nnd what it is to
camp life, in fact, it has been called
the 'Heart of the Camp.' Well, unless
we are fortunate enough to camp
where we can gather a big pile of
weeds and grass, we have to omit
that pleasure.
"Anot(ier thing fhat you boys have
that we\lo not. is swimming. There
are a feV ponds that we have run
across but. the water in the rivers,
ponds and lakes Is too cold to go
swimming in. The water Is so cqld at
this altitude that it Is said that the
Indians that live around Lake Tltica-
ca never havo heen known to learn to
swim. Although we have the sun
over head at noon, yet it does not
succeed in wanning our waters enough
to encourage swimming."
New Zealand.
In Now Zealand, a small boy in a
oanoe got into danger. A gale was
blowing an da big sea was running,
lie was being carried seaward, when
Scout      Alan      Fisher,     Christchurch
I Troop,    raw   him    from    the    shore.
, Quickly he got three other boys together;   they   launched    a   boat   and
i pushed oul to ilu- rescue,
Thoy reached the canoe, got the boy
! into their own boat and brought him
IBhore, but only after a heroic fight
wltb   sea  and   storm   that  lasted   for
| mere than two hours. Brave as they
all were, the honor goi s to the sooiit
I who led them, for he was a cripple;
im faced the dangi rs of the sea with
the knowledge (hat If the boat was
swamped the ethers might swim, but
for him there was no chance of rescue, lie wns another to whom the
modal was given.
Scout   Douglas    Smilh,   aged    four-
! teen, of the 4th Baling Troop, was un
dressing to bathe in the Grand Junction ('anal, mar Brentford, when a
small boy. who was already bathing,
got beyond his depth, nnd wns being
carried away by the current
Scout Smilh although a poor swim
���mer, said to his companion, "I'll try to
i get him," and dashing into the water,
did his boit to save the lad, hut was
himself curried down by the stream.
Iloth boys wire drowned. But Scout
Smith's attempt wlll stand as a noble
example to his brother scouts of hero-
Ismand  self-sacrifice.
The bronze cross for gallantry.
which would have been given to him
hnd li" lived, was nwarded to him
though dead, nnd is now In tho possession of his father.
These few examples aro picked nt

hundred capes of life-saving, and of
some millions of "good turns" done

Films Showing Impure Conditions Affecting Milk and Results In Spreading   Dlssase.
Berlin, March 10.���A moving picture
film showing the dangers of an Im-
pure milk BUpply has been exhibited
with such good effect In Germany
that health officials at once became
much more rigorous ln tbelr enforcements of the pure food regulations,
Their cnmpalgk against negligent
dairymen was conducted wllh such energy that the milkmen finally presented a petition to tbe authorities, asking for the prohibition of tbls pari leu
lar film. In reply lo this notion Professor Schlossmann of the DUSSel-
dorf Municipal Hospital for Children,
who Is responsible for the film, proved
that It had led to the conviction of
many dairymen for violation of the
pure food regulations. Its exhibition
was not discontinued.
Much   ls   being  said   nowadays    lu
Germany  about   the  possible  evil  effects of moving pictures, but the other
j side of the question, the  moving  pic
I ture ns a public educator,  is well  II-
I lustrated   by   the  experiment   of   Professor Schlossmann.    Ills film showed
particularly   how   impure   milk   Is   re-
jsponsible   for   many   of   the   diseases
1 of children, and   it  was exhibited  ex-
i lenslvely throughout  the  Ithlne  province  In   promoting  it  propaganda  for
reducing the rate of Infant   mortality,
The net results so fnr have been excellent.    The health authorities are enforcing  rules  nnd   regulations   much
more effectively:    the   dairymen   nre
producing a   better   article,   and   the
children   are   drinking   cleaner   und
purer milk.
Moving pictures have become an Important   part    of   tbe   entertainment
business in Germany   There are now
��� no less than 220 moving picture "theatres" In the capital,   with   as  many
i more In  the suburbs.    The   tendency
, Is now to erect special houses,   architecturally  suited   for   picture   shows
Three Fuch establishments   nre now
I building In  Berlin, one of which will
sea 1600 persons.
I    On  the other   band,  there   are   al-j
ready signs of over-production ln the
. business.    Wllh  so  many  competitors j
I In the field, prices of admission must !
be   kept   very    low.       More-over,   thn
| film  producing companies,  which are'
jou a strong financial basis, are male-
\ Ing harder terms for the show managers   than    hitherto,   particularly   for
j the tiest class of films.
As competition grows, the tendency I
; to put on trashy, sensational nnd inelo-
dramatic   films   increases.    Many   of
j the managers hew as closely as pos-
I slble to the  line of police prohibition;   hence  the   cry  Is  raised   with*
growing frequency in the press for a '
more rigid censorship of films.
A   committee   of  university   profes- !
sors, scientific and literary men   and
artists,   has   been   appointed   to   find
ways and means for making tbe mov-
Ing  picture  do  better service.  In  ills- '

Tlie first requisite Is a basis of calculation. For this the n-tronomer
takes the spot where bis oli.-crvatory
stood in the month of March and its
place in September. It Is the same
location on earth, of course, but in
celestial space���the earth having traveled halfway around the sun���the distance is lt-Hi.ObO.OOO miles. With this
as the bas* of a triangle the astronomer,   by   a simple  calculation,  com-'
where
iho slur is situnlcd and then finds
the distance to the earth���thai is, he
could do sn accurately if the 1'Mi,000,-
000 miles were proportionately long
wit't the two i ther sides ol tlie triangle instead of being almost inadc-
qunt^'ly  short.
Si>nio idea of the method may be
gnines] Irom its employment lor land
measuring. The distance to a mountain top is desired. The surveyor lays
off a few hundred yards on the
ground, finds the angles at which
straight lines proceed from this basis
of measurement to the mountain top
and then solves the problem easily.
To ascertain the distance to the moon
a very long line is needed���one drawn
between two observatories will do���
not along the earth's surface, which
is round, but the straight line through
the earth, from observatcry t.> observatory. With this line n triangle Is
drawn, with the moon at the vertex,
and the satellite lound to be 240,000
miles nwny.
In making a triangle with s star
astronomers bsve had recourse to the
longest line possible to earthlings���
between the aforementioned points 1"-
cated by the i xtremies ol the earth's
orbit. If a slur wer- only n million
miles off n 180,000,000 mile shift in the
position ol the earth would aHord
quite nn advantage for a look at the
other cheek, yet it makes loudly nn
spprei iable distance In fhe relative
position with the nearest star. Alpha
Centauri, 2G.ooo,Ooo,WK),000 miles beyond.
Now, the arc oi a circle is divided
into SflO degrees, each subdivided into
('���0  minutes   imd   the   mil.ute   into  00
seconds. So th.-r.- are 1,306,000 seconds
in   n   circle.    The   angle   thnt   Alpha
Centauri makes is less than the mil-
lionth   part  oi  u circle.    It  is about
three-quarters of a seoond ol the arc.
Imagine the angle���a line drawn from
tlie   star  to the  enrth  in  March,  another line from the star to the enrth
in  September.   The  base   ol  '.liis  tri- |
ancle is 186,000,000 miles, which con- |
stitutes  less  than the  millionth  part
of a circl:   in   measurement  of  the!
angle  where   shines  Alpha   Centauri. |
This is hard to detect With the finest |
of    . inthomatic.il    Instruments,   and i
t'.int is   vhy the distance to even the '
nearest star is a vexing problem.
A  Lucky  Find.
A remarkable piece of gw 1 luck
was experienced by Mrs. Holland, of
Ihe OM Dutch House, Bray, Berks,
England, when she bought s quantity
of old books for i& at a snio nt Wool-
ley Hall, Maidenhead, Looking
through the packet, she found a literary treasure -tits lirst tour and only
editions ol "Tlie Germ," containing
lome "t the early works oi tlie pre-
Knphaclitu Brotherhood; the first version of "Thc Blessed Dam-axel," ami
contributions by Christina and William Uos.-e'.ti. Mrs. Holland has now
sold tbe work for $1,250.
Fined  For  Marrying.
A  cynic, once-  rgmarked that mar-
riaee   brought   its ""own   punishment,
������ and that condolences rather than cbn-
fratulatlons should be showered on
the bride and '.-ride-groom. How much
| truth  there is  in this contention  we
must leave our readers to decide; but
i it is a fact that, apart Irom any
I problematical  punishment, there   are
certain sections nnd communities who
I penalise marriage, and regard it in
' tlie light ol a punishable nflence.
It is the rule, ior instance,  at  All
Souls' College, Oxford, Kngland. that
! a Feliow forfeits his Fellowship if,
when studying the classics, he should
take   unto himself   a  wile.    In   such
' an event he must not only pay the
penalty,  but  must also  present  his
j college with a memorial in the shape
oi a silver cup, with the further condition that on ibis cup shall be inscribed In Latin: "He back-slid into

II somebody says that your poetry

The Lite of a Drop of Water.
A German professor named Meinar-
ins  has  amused  himself  with cnlcu-
lating how Ions a drop of water stays
in   the ocean  before  it   is evaporated
an 1  how  soon  it returns to the sea.
Calculating���he  does  not say how���
the   total   evaporation   irom   the  surface oi the ocean and estimating the
tol-.'.  volume of water Nl the oceans,
i   Jrop  of  water  entering  the  ocean
will   stay   there  3.460  years  provided
it  awaits its turn  to be evaporated
Howevar, the  proiessor admits    that
the  Burface  wat.-r     stands    s    gooi
o'nance  f,f getting abend  of  ils turn.
The average stay out oi the ocean  is
only twelve days before it has fallen
in   rain   and   run   back   again  to  the
sea.

If you were to be taken away
now, would It be easy for some
one else to adminster your business and estate?
Probably not, and that is a
very good reason why you
rhould immediately make a Will
and appoint this Company Executor.
Whe'n the time comes to adminster an estate, the average
man without experience hardly
knows where to start.
He spouts time and money
learning, and even then regrets
the time taken from hiB 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  and Investments
were badly disorganized or in-
volved if not carefully looked
after, or in the hands of one
���without the proper facilities.
lt is just these very troubles
experienced In so many cases
tbat led the requirement and
formation of Trust   Companies.
The Dominion Trust Company
has paid up capital and surplus
of 19,600,000.00.
Its business is to act as executor, and any other business it
does is quite as much a side line
to it an the handling of estates
is to the private executor.
It has the knowledge, ability,
reliability, capital, energy, experience, to handle estates in
the ablest possible manner
Thnt in the kind of executor you
should have.
It will be well worth your
while to call in today and have
B talk about this matter as it
concerns you.
Our Directors and Officers
will be glad to answer any questions pertaining to your problems without cost or obligation
to you.

��� BURNABY   NOTES. ���
****************
Edmonds March 10--The Burnaby
branch of the Sons of England lodge
will meet in the Moreton hall on Tuesday evening next at 8 o'clock. This
is the regular meeting and a good
attendance is expected.
Much progress Is reported on the
I Kingsway paving operations. The
1 big steam shovel which was brought
over from Vancouver last week is now-
working on the thoroughfares near
Stride avenue and has already reiluc
ed the grade of a considerable portion
of the road In that neighborhood Culverts are being construct! d across
Kingsway near the Westminster limits  to drain  the  low  lying  portion of
feet under ground. Until they got a
title to the cemetery they did not
feel like spending a lot of money on
It.
The matter was remitted to the
health and parks comtnlttee for report.
Worthy Appeal.
A letter from the Sisters of the
Providence Orphanage was read asking for a grant There were $2200 a
year of taxation on Ihe Institution.
The institution bad over 100 children,
maintained, clothed and educated by
donations collected by thet Sifters all
over the province and spent in New
Westminster
In ordinury circumstances this
would suffice but owing to the Increased taxation as a result of stroet
improvements  il   was now  Impossible
The letter pointed out the marked
difference in the position as regards
taxation occupied by the Orphanage
and those of the business man. investor or speculator.
The last mentioned expected enhanced value to counteract their increased taxation. The assets of the
Orphanage were human beings which
although of more value to the city
than material assets were not so commercially.
The estimate of a healthy adult immigrant to any part of America was
estimated to average $1000. Thoy
reared the children as far as their
means would allow to become useful
citizens.
They conld get no exemption from
taxation, they asked no remuneration
for their labor, they asked for a grant :
to relieve them of the heavy burden
of taxes which pressed severely upon
their resources.
Two of llie Sisters were present but
in answer to the mayor, said Ihey had
nothing further tn add to their letter.'
Referred  to  Committee
Alderman Lynch said they all ap-
predated the splendid and good work
the Sisters were doing and the conditions under which they worked He
moved it be referred to the- finance
committee for consideration, which
was agreed to.
Mayor Gray said it would receive
every consideration hy the council
When they took up the estimates.
A number   of   communications on '
various  civic  subjects  were  remitted
to  their  appropriate  committees. 1
