'Baltimore, Md., Feb. 1,���The steamer Nantucket, which was in collision
with the steamer Monroe, when 41
lives were lost, docked here tonight.
In a report to the officirs of the
Miners and Merchants Transportation
company Capt. Berry said that while
the Nantucket was on her usual course
fog signals of a vessel, afterwards
found to he the Monroe, were reported ahead. The fog was low-lying and
at times clearer than others. The fog
signals of thn Nantucket were sounding at regular intervals. The fog
signal of the Monroe was again heard
and this time on the Nantucket's port
low. The next whistles heard from
the Monroe were two blasts which
indicated that the Monroe was trying
to pass the Nantucket starboard to
starboard, contrary to rules of navigation.
At  Right  Angles.
In an endeavor to avoid a collision
the Nantucket's helm was put hard-a-
port to keep to the righ'., but the Monroe proceeded at full speed and tried
to cross the bow of the Nantucket.
She succeeded in getting partly past
the Nantucket's stem, when the vessels collided, the Nantucket's stem
striking the Monroe's starboard bow
forward of the pilot bouse about at
right angles.
Under Great Speed.
The Monroe passed under such
errcat speed, according to Capt. Berry,
���hat the stem of the Nantucket was
bent sharply toward her starboard side
and the Nantucket slewed around so
that her port side was scraped by
the Monroe, Crushing one of the Nantucket's port boat... The Monroe
passed on out of sight. At the time
of the collision the Nantucket's engines were running at full speed
astern and had been so running for
some  time  previous  to  the collision. I
Cant. Berry's report continues as
follows; - <*��   L

could not be revived, and also a Mrs.
Harrington,  who  died   after  Ehe  had

"It can be established that the steward, stewardess and chief engineer

by Act.
Fruit grading rules which will provide for stlfrer requirements In connection with the packing of fruit than
are specified In tha act has been decided upon for the provincial paci*:-
ing schools, following a conference al
Vernon between Provincial Horticulturist R. M. Wlnslow and his staff or
seven fruit packing instructors.
It is proposed that the fruit packed
in British Columbia shall be as far
ahead of the standard set in the act
as it is possible to achieve, and in
this way the pack will compete even
more favorably than at present with
tile Imported article. This applies
particularly to apples, which Torm the
staple variety or fruit produced in the
province, Bvory effort is to be made
through the packing schools und li
the I'i ait exchanges operated in connection with the central selling
agency to obtain belter grading and
packing in   British Columbia,
The provincial department Is encouraging the use of tiie American
apple box among o'rchardlsts in the
province because or the tact that this
box is more compact than tin* Canadian one, presents probably a better
appearance In that, it is shorter but
stouter, nnd Is better shaped for the

One Good Deed Deserves Another       d
|      By CLARISSA MACK1E      tt
Adults York looked very despairingly
mound her Immaculately clean nud
quite bare pantr..'. Cooking utensils
were arranged iu orderly neatness, and
the everyday china was shilling on Its
particular shelf, but of provisions there
were none to mention.
Tbe bread box was empty as well us
the cake box nnd the cooky can. The
tea canister held only a dust of ten on
the bottom, and lhe coffee jar had becu
empty for two weeks
Tliis was the day that Adelia had
held out against for weeks. Little liy
little her store of ready money had
dwindled until at last there remained
onlv |."> cents in her little beaded purse.
Adelia was proud, and she was now
poor, since she had received a letter
from New York saying that the railroad stock whose dividends provided
bet* modest Income was quite worthless now. Without the semiannual
dividend, which wns due now, Aelelin
was penniless, She owned the little
house where she lived, for she had inherited it from Aunt Rebecca York,
whom she had nursed through an irritable nnd eccentric old age and whose
dentil did not bring to light half of the
securities which her will had iinine-d as
Aelelia's portion.
"1 must go to Mr. Brown nnd see If
I ennnot get n loan on the house."
sighed Adelia as she closed the pantry

locked and a card on the door said thnt

Aehlia smiled bitterly as she turned

to some friend or neighbor.

Adelia Bushed warmly, but she shook

Adelia hastened home, conscience

remorsefully ns she entered the house
Her mouth had watered nt Cherry's

risen like a wall before her
"I wasn't too proud to tell u lie" She
lashed her conscience with this thought.
She felt faint nnd cold nnd almost ill
from lack of food. The hens hinl suddenly censed to lay, nml sbe was gbul

but they had kept up her strength
Adelia went out to the hock porch to
bring In her bread nnd tea which tbe
grocery man must have delivered by
this tiine. There were sonic cans of
fruit in the cellar left over from Inst

until her hunger was appeased.
It wan not until she had washed the
dishes nnd put tiiem nwny and sat
down with folded hands that Adelia
actually realized the enormity of ber
The next morning she nroso very
early, and without eating a morsel sbe
went to the china cupboard in the dining room ond took down Aunt Rebecca's britaunlu teapot. This teapot was
Adelia's most cherished heirloom and
had belonged to her grandmother before Aunt Rebecca possessed It.
Mrs. Mason had admired the teapot
more thnn once and hod hinted thut if
Adelia ever desired to sell it she would
like to have ou opportunity to become
Us owner.
"It will hurt me more than anything
else to give this up," said Adelia to
herself ns she wiped oflf the shining
treasure, "but 1 guess tbot pride of
mine will have to poy for It. 1 shall
give it to Annie Mason right now iu
exchange for those things, nnd 1 shan't
accept anything more than the value
of Unit food. I've ofteu seen grandmother pour ten from It. but Aunt Rebecca never used it thut 1 remember.
It's odd bow she asked for it the day
before she died ond went to sleep with
it iu her hands. Poor Aunt Rebecca!
She wOs so eccentric. But she meuu't
well. I'm sure."
Wrapping lhe britnnnia teapot In her
little red shawl, Adelia went through
the orchard to the little gate in the
fence that opened into Mrs. Mnson'a
vegetable garden,
Annie Mason was on her knees pulling beets. Her rosy face grew rosier
when she saw Adelia standing there,
pule and ill looking.
"What Is it. Adelia?" she asked
quickly. "Is anything the matter?"
She sat back on tier heels and shook
the earth from a monster beet root.
Adelia's voice trembled with emotion.
"I've got to see you alone. Annie,"
she s:;id hurriedly. "It's very Important"
Mrs. Mason arose with difficulty, for
she was very stout, aud with o troubled expression on her comely face she
led the way to the house and Into the
sitting room.
"There ain't n soul to home this
morning. They've nil gone off, Adelia.
What on earth's the matter?" She
dropped Into a chair and waved Adelia
into n not her,
Adelia unwrapped the shawl and set
the tiritoniiia teapot on the table before she spoke.
"Annie Mason. I've got a conresslon
to make," she said in a low. shamed
tone. "I've been short of money ever
since tbe railroad went to smash and
they stopped dividends. I was too
proud to borrow money on the house
ur to get In debt, and I've been hungry���Just plain hungry. So yesterday
when I got home I found a big bosket
of groceries on the buck porch nud-
ond���I wns so hungry 1 kept them!"
She paused tragically.
"Weir.'" gasped Mrs. Mason.
"Well, they're yours, Annie Mason.
I'm sure they are. All I had ordered
was o loaf of bread and 10 cents'
worth of tea. and I've kept your provisions, and to pay you bock for them
and to punish myself Tor being so wickedly proud I've brought over Ihe britnnnia teapot. It's for you!" Adelia
sunk back in ber chair, and her lips
were very white.
Mrs. Masou said not a word then.
but she flew around and brought a pli-
low for Adelia's bead and n little glass
of blackberry wine. When the color
came into Adelia's cheeks Annie Mason
leaned over her frail neighbor oud
spoke Impressively.
"Now. don't yuti dure soy a word.
Adelia. till I'm through. 1 wont yotl
to know that I haven't forgotten how
ynu helped mc when the children had
lhe measles last winter nnd nil tbe

I knew that you was having some temporary trouble, nnd yesterday morning
when I was giving my grocery order 1
siiid to the new mnn. "My neighlior.
Miss York, forgot to tell you all sbe

just add these things (o her order.'
And then I made up n list, and those
you found ou tbe porch were your

word against It! What's the use of
having neighbors ir they can't help
eiuli other out? 'Neighbor' means to bo
���near to,' nud the time to bo near to U
when we're in trouble. Don't you dure

Mrs. Mason wns crying herself as
she spoke, and after she and Adelia
had mingled their tears nud bnd grown
a little calmer the older woman suggested that (hey drink n Clip of ten

Adelia   dried   her   e.M'S   and   smiled

He "What the land!" She drew forth

Adelia opened It carefully, "Aunt
Itebeeco must have put something In
It," she said In a dozed tone as she
rlnttened out the engraved certiorates
nf stock.
"I'll bet It's those missing securities!" cried Annie Mason excitedly
"Well, your Aunt Rebecca would bo
likely to do thnt. Didn't you tell me
she hud the teapot in tier room the
dny before she died?"
Adelia nodded. Her eyes were heavy
with tears. "It's nil so wonderful,
Annie. I mean my awful pride nml

Linguistic Whimsicalities.
The following are a few linguistic
whimsicalities: The Germans call a
thimble a "linger hat" which it certainly is, and a grasshopper 11 "hay
horse." A glove with tlu'tii is a "h.iinl
shoe," showing evidently that tbey
wore shoes before gloves. Poultry l��

the well known substances oxygen auel
hydrogen are in tueir language "sour

strange to say, have uo verb "to Stand."
nor can a Frenchman speak of "kicking" any one. The nearest approach a
Frenchman makes to it lu his politeness Is to threaten to "give a blow
With his foot," the same to the recipient in either case, but It seems to
want the directness, the energy, of our
"���kick." Neither has he any word for
''baby" or for "home" or "comfort."
The terms "upstairs" nnd "downstairs" are also unknown iu French.

for "friend." The Italians have no
equivalent for "humility." ��� London

Queer Resemblances.
That persons who live together for
n very long period not only acquire tho
same mannerisms, but grow a strong
facial resemblance, is nn established
fact. Hut it is little known that tbe
same condition often exists from mistress and servant being associated together for a long period of year*.
There Is usually a strong desire on the
part of most servants to ape their mistresses, and tills, ndded to the fact ot
constant nearness, often extends to facial resemblances.
There are In a small town In New
York state two unusual Instances of
this Ulud. Two widows live there,
each of whom has been attended by a
woman servant for more than forty
years. In both cases the servnuts have
become so like their mistresses that
they are often mistaken for them, and
their cases have attracted attention
far and near. Their voices over the
telephone are so alike that friends ot
the' women have given up this method

Sounds  Warning.
Mr. Taft said: "ln the United States
we are now occupied   with  great  reforms and now that the day has come,
ns is always the case, when reform is
undertaken   by  a   people,   radical   ac
| tion is"called for and social and political changes are urged that are not
likely to result in improvement.
Mi. Taft voiced this warning to the
Canadian   people   after   saying   there
I had been interference In the politics of
j the  Dominion  by  corporate  Interests
| as there had been in the United States
| where,  "the  corporate    and    corrupt
! control of politicians" had for a time
! threatened the welfare* of the nation.
The Price to Be Paid.
"Our representative system 13 threat-
. ened,"  Mr. Taft said, "and  every ef-
| fort Is being made to bring about what
Is called a purer democracy  and dl-
| rect action on the part of the people
by the adoption of complicated  legislation and summary  dismissal of officials regularly chosen."
Mr. Taft said that he had all faith
in the good sense of the common people and that the excesses Incident to
reform were the price that had to be
paid for social betterment.

"We In the United States are divided among ourselves as to the right

London. Feb. 1. Dances especially
for young persons, are likely to be one

The   inconvenience   caused   by     the
i    'Perils or the White Lights," a film
in  two  pans, will  be the feature at

for her muke a very thrilling picture.
The  story   in   brief  is  as   follows:
.Annahello  unwittingly   places  herself
in the power of Kramer, a notorious
rake.   Confronted by dire danger, the
gill shoots him lu self defence.    Latter

return to the stage and capitalize the
notoriety  she  has  gained.    Annabel!,���
repulses   the    man.    Determined    to

country and makes her home with tho
| Fosters,  some distant relatives.    The
: latter are    ignorant    of    Annabolle'*
past.     Jack,   Mrs.   Foster's   son,   falls

Toronto, Ke'b. 1,���By taking advantage of the Infirmities of Thomas

to have stolen $270. Roy was arrest-
eel today.
Roy and Thompson had rooms In
the same house. Roy, who claims to
be an asteopath, had treated the old
man for lllaess and in this way the
two became quite friendly. On Dec.

Roy to make out a check for that
amount for him to sign. Instead of
making out the check for $30 Roy Is
said to have made It out for $300 and
cashed it.
When an advertiser advertises he wants to reach the people.
Patronage is needed to make a business a success. In having a
name and business always before the public, or the name of a specially
named product, buyers have it in mind when that kind of a thing
is wanted, li the ad. is in a handy place, only a moment is needed
to refer to it.
What better medium is there than the Telephone Directory?. An
advertiser wants circulation, and he gets it. Thirty-one thousand directories .are Issued] and they go Into every home that does considerable buying between Agassis and the Gulf of Georgia. Every part
ot the district is covered.
An advertiser apreciates a medium that is In constant use. The
directory is used an average of eight times per subscriber per day.
or over 200,000 times every twenty-four hours. These figures are not
guessed at but are ascertained by actual count each month. Moreover, the directory is never discarded. It Is referred to unceasingly
and man, woman and child soon gets familiar wilh the names promi-
nentlj displayed therein.
An advertiser wants to make sure he Is reaching the people he
wants. Who is there who does not consult a telephone directory
some time during the day? If a firm's name ts displayed on several
consecutive plages on the top or bottom, or if the names of a special
article were shown there, would it not soon he known in every household on the lower mainland of British Columbia?
If you have something to market, if you want to reach all tho
people all the time, take a look at the directory. It is a particularly
good medium for most  purposes, aud very probably  It will be just
what want. __^|

Points About the Woman Who Wean

Dear Klsa���The best place to see
economy working overtime I have re-
tently discovered is in tho home of
people blessed with a large share of
fhis world's goods. They arc, as a
���uie, more economical in the little
things than those less endowed wltb
wealth. Last week 1 spent with thf
l'.'s, and you remember, dear, moth
er telling us years ago how "saving"
the older members of this family with
gold galore used to be Well, their
jcsceii.louts have inherited the same
tendencies. The frugal miud is still j
apparent In the chin of today. How ;
ilu I know? A tine object lesson was
gi, en by the (laughter of the house.
One day during my stay .lack, Anne
l'.'s brother, found that he had quite
outgrown his mackintosh. The coat
was oue of tine quality (they are too
sensible nnd economical to buy any
thing but the best), but It was almost
worn out- Indeed, decidedly shabby ll)
places. I myself should have thrown
It away without n thought ns being
too far gone to do anything with, nnd
I laughed heartily when Anne pounced
upon tbe discarded garment like a
'Why. Anne." I said, "what on earth
can you ever do with such a goue ti
pieces old mackintosh?"
"Well," she replied, "I was going to
do something for myself wilh It. hill
since yon are so skeptical about its
usefulness I'm going to make some
things for you out of It. There nre
lots of places thnt are quite good In
it yet." she said, holding the old rng
up admiringly for me to see. "Why.
the entire back is almost as good as
  i ue\v."
I laughed again, but In spite of my

It Is Service That Backs Up
Advertising Most Successfully
In a very real sense every business is a
public service enterprise. A man who supplies commodities to a community, whether
that community is a neighborhood, a city, or
the whole country, prospers only in so far
as he subserves the interests of his patrons.
This sounds elementary, but an amazing
number of men are ignoring this doctrine
in actual practice.
In the past few years the public has
been swinging to this view of not only
large enterprises, like railroads and public
utility corporations, but of smaller institutions. The merchant, large or small, who
does not sense the full meaning of this
changed viewpoint is doing himself serious
injustice and is "in" for many a harassing
That the more progressive business
men everywhere are becoming more fully
aware of their public service functions is
shown by such phrases as these which are
occurring in greater and greater numbers
advertisements: "Our store is your
"We pay the clerks for your ser-
It is only by fully satisfying you that
they can satisfy us."
Many a business that is selling excellent
goods and observing all the conventional
rules of good merchandising is falling short
of its greatest success just because the directing intelligence fails to comprehend this
profoundly significant fact of business as a
public service. Regarding the public as a
body that exists for his convenience, the
manager keys his whole enterprise accordingly. Some day he wakes up to the sorrowful fact that for some reason or other he is
"out of tune."
A vivid understanding of his true position as a director of a Public Service Enterprise will enable anyone who is now groping
for the mysterious reason which will explain
his lack of complete success to clarify his
problem, will energize the business anew
and will raise unsatisfatcory service���and
perhaps goods��� that lose buyers into satisfactory service that keeps buyers and adds
to them still others.
Advertising that is reinforced by a
dynamic policy of public service is unassailable. It is practically competition proof,
given a measure of experience and judgment in direction.

special Panama Canal number.
At present it is Impossible to utilize the Pacific coast route to any extent for the bringing of settlers into
Canada from the United Kingdom or
the continent of Europe, and British
Columbia ir, practically petting ths
population that sifts through the other
provinces. Alter tie Panama canal
has been open for traffic there will
be a fairly direct course for the move*
particularly from the Mediterranean-
European porta to British Columbia.
Ship Grain All the Year.
Hard-headed, shrewd business men,
whose* Imagination is not easily stirred
discern In the opening of the canal
and the approaching completion of
the great transcontinental road two
potent factors foi the progress of the
land which hold their destinies ln its
keeping. The lumber, mining, fishing
and agricultural interests of Canada
are preparing for changed conditions.
It is confidently expected that the new-
water route, combined with the enlarged and improved home railway facilities will improve the position of
Western Canada in the battle for the
world's markets.
One of the most important features
In connection with the Panama route
will   be   the   transportation   of   grain
from Aloerta and Saskatchewan.    As
Burning that the cost of shipping grain
from North Atlantic ports to Kngland
averages 10s per ton. the approximate
ex>st from British Columbia, including
canal   tolls   would   be about  30s   per
ton,  or  32.15  cents  per   100   pounds.
This rate added to the cost of transportation   by   rail   from   Alberta  and
Saskatchewan is less than the average
cost  by   the   present   routes  through
Montreal and St. John.   But even supposing  the cost of  transportation  to
be   slightly   higher,   it   Is   more  than
offset by the very decided advantage
which  the  farmers of  the northwest
will have in being able to ship their
grain all the year round, and especially  during the  winter months after
the close of the Great Lakes and the
3t. Lawrence.
The opening of tbe Panama canal
will also have considerable influence
upon  the  development    of    western
Canada, and  will open  up new fields
of   enterprise   as   fair   north   as   the
Vukon and Alaska.    The cost of transportation on  these products has considerably   retarded   this   development
and   It  is  only  the  high   valued   products  such  as gold,  silver and  valuable minerals that could pay the heavy
transport   charges.     The   new   route
via the Panama canal should have the
effect of developing the coal resources
of Vancouver island and also the an-
thraclte deposits which are known to
exist in northern  British Columbia.
���East With West.
The  opening  of  the canal  should
cause dlrtet Bteamshtp connections to
be made between the ports of Mont
real, Quebec. Halifax and Sydney and
the ports of British Columbia and enable   the   manufacturers   of   Ontario,
Quebec. Nova Scotia and New Brunswick to ship their products at considerably  less cost  than can be aoe-om
plisbed by the all rail or lake and rail
routes across Canada.
It Is the writers conviction that the
opening of the Panama canal will provide the means of reducing the cost
of transportation between the eastern
and western provinces of Canada very
Nor is it the Internal trade of Canada alone, tbat will benefit by the new
routes via Pan?ma. The extension
of trade to and trom the West Indies
and South America and other countries, will be made possible.

of the opinion that the city should
get the 4 per cent annually paid on
the savings deposits instead of the 3
per cent It Is now receiving.
The difference of one per cent
makes an annua] difference of an even
$1000 on the sinking fund as it Is at
present. The mayor is also thinking
ot adopting the serial bond arrangement In borrowing as practised by
the school board; under this method
the board pays back each year oue*
thirtieth of the principal, thus reducing the interest charges each year.
The mayor has it figured out on a
$ 1,000,000 lean for 30 years the aerial
bond saves $400,000 net on the Interest paid. This would almost run
the city for a year.

For a barbarian the Tarahumare is
