Report from Washington Explains Reason for Arrest of
Gustave Bauch, a German-American���Now Stated He
Has Been Removed to Chihuahua���Complete Report
on Murder of British Subject Awaited.
Drastic Order Issued to Roman Catholics by Mgr.
Posses Hunting Bandits
Following Three Clues
Washington, Feb. 22.���There
is a well defined report, here tonight that Qustav Bauch, the
German-American who was previously reporte-d executed at
Juarez, was spirited away by
Villa for the reason that he
was a witness of the altercation
which William S. Benton, a
British subject, had with the
rebel chief and which ended in
the cold blooded murder of Beu-
Hold Conference.
W.'ishington, Keb. 22.���President
Wilson and Secretary Bryan conferred today on the Mexican situation.
No announcements were made after
the conference, but it Is understood
that a complete report on the execution at Juarez of William S. Denton,
was to be removed to Juarez on
February IB, which was also the date
set for his execution. He did not say
in the letter on what charge he had
been arrested.
Genera, Hugh I,. Scott also received
a request from citizens of Garden
City. Call., to assist in locating the
man because of his broken hearted
mother, and the military have taken
up the search. The message to General Scoit said that a direct appeal
had been made to President Wilson
to take steps to have the constitutionalists give up information concerning Couipton.

Consul Edwards was instructed by
Secretary Bryan today to locate
Couipton if possible and report on the
alleged arrest and execution of the
American. Similar instructions were

Spring-Rice, the Uritish ambassador,
has expressed to the Hrltish foreign
office his pleasure at the promptness
with which the .American government
lias acted in seeking to ferret the
truth about the killing of a Uritish
subject. Full details of the execution
are rapidly being gathered. It is generally admitted that the case hinges
largely on whether Benton went to
General Villa's headquarters armed.
That he was high tempered and had
previous difficulties with the constitutionalism Is known, but upon thp
fact of whether he had a revolver
when he accosted Villa depends judgment of the affair. Benton's friends
deny he curried weapons.
Difficult to Settle.
Government officials here are impartial in their remarks about the incident, insisting that any judgment
formed before all the facts are col-
lected necessarily rests upon bias or
prejudice. Upon the truth or falsity
of Villa's statement that Benton tried
to kill him will depend upon the view
which the llritlsh and the United
States governments will take. The
prevalent belief in official circles that
took up the matter. Consul Edwards
called on Colonel Fidelavila, Jefe de
las armas at Juarez, but said he had
never had compton in the Juarez jail,
that no Americans had been executed
in Juarez and that he had never heard
of Compton.
Richard M. Dudley telegraphed
Senator Full today asking him to
take measures to obtain immediate
delivery of the body of Bentcn to the
widow on this side of the river. Mr.
Dudley explained that he believed a
view of the body would go far to explain the manner of the Scotchman's
death. Dudley, like other Americans
here, does not accept the official explanation of a court martial as given
out ut Juurez yesterday.

A private message from W. E.
Perry, of Carden City, Cull., asked for
0 Information concerning the missing
man. It stated that a letter had been
received from Harry Compton dated
Chihuahua which appealed to them
for asslslnnce, saying that he was a
prisoner  iu   the   Chihuahua  Jail  and
Peace Grove, opposite the Globe
mills, when* Francisco Madero established his provisional capital of
Mexico in 1811, the* memorial services of the first anniversary of the
assassination of President Madero and
his vice-president, Jose Pino Suarez,
were held today.
The troops of the Juarez garrison
marched to the little grove where a
platform had been erected and were
reviewed from the stand by Colonel
Fidelavilla. commander of the Juarez
garrison, and members of his staff.
After the review, a program consisting of musical numbers and addresses
were delivered.
Juarez was In mourning during the
day In honor of the memory of the
two leaders who met their death by
assassination a year ago. All amusements with the exception of the races
were closed during ilie day, and the
saloons were also closed. The soldie'rs
of the garrison wore buttons of
Madero draped with crepe and crepe

the officials of the  town.

Montreal, Feb. 22.���In a circular letter read to Roman Catholics today,
Archbishop Bruchesi describes as
"had and scandalous" and ab olulely
forbids the dancing of the tango. "A
certain dance has invaded our society"
says his grace. "I do not know its
origin, but it has spread over the
whole world with Incredible rapidity.
Unquestionably its author is the spirit
of evi. No words are too forcible to
stigmatize as they deserve these unbecoming movements of the body,
those really lascivious contortions
which no self-respecting person would
allow. Certain hotels popular in
Montreal did not hesitate to use it as
an advertisement, which fact does not
redound  to  their credit."
After referring to "this dangerous
and unseemly amusement," the archbishop continues: "I forbid it absolutely as dangerous and scandalous and
I also forbid the other new dances
which resemble it. I appeal to all
truly Christian women and I beg of
them to band together against these
licentious dances and the indecent fashions of the day."
In a reference to modern women's
dres3, Mgr. Bruchesi says: "The most
elementary rudiments of decency appear to be completely forgotten. The
immodesty of feminine dress is becoming more and more marked. Women and young girls cheerfully become fashion slaves. Do they thing
of the scandal which they give and
of the sins which they expose themselves to."
Speaking particularly of low neck
dress and short sleeves, scantiness of
draperies, transparency of materials
used and questionable arrangements
of lines, the archbishop asks: "What
are the religious sentiments of those
mothers who dare to dress their children in such costumes for holy communion and confirmation? Warn parents that these costumes are str*ctL
forbidden and that those who wear
tbem will not be admitted to the reception   of  the  sacraments."
On Feb. 23 Archbishop Bruchesi
leaves for Rome to pay his prescribed
visit to the eternal city.
Bellingham, Wash., Feb. 22.���The
search for the two train robbers who

to three possible clues which officers

Acting on the general belief that

two men answer the general description of the robbers. It is believed
they will be arrested before morning.
The bodies of Thomas Wadsworth

Parallels Between Britain and United
States and How Canada Is
Ottawa, Feb. 22.���Dr. Michael Clark, '
member for Red Deer, was on Saturday the guest of honor of the Canadian club of Ottawa at a luncheon at
the Chateau Laurier. His subject was
some tariff legislation and some parallels and a forecast.
The parallels he drew were between the changes in Great Britain
in the period from 1842 and 1861 and
the changes which have taken place
in the United States during tbe last
11 months. Since Canada was linked
with both countries, to the United
States by physical geography, to the
United Kingdom by more supreme but
even stronger links of flag, laws, traditions and forms of government, It
was inevitable that political happenings in either country must affect
Canada and when the conditions were
the same in both countries their influence was likely to be overpowering.
What had taken place In England
from 1842 to 1861 had been reproduced under Wood row Wilson's guidance
in the United States and to the president he paid this tribute: "History will
write him down as a man combining
the reforming zeal of Cobden with the
administrative zeal of Sir Robert
Some Parallels.
Between the changes ln Great Britain and in the United States he found
these   parallels:   First,   that  a tariff
had lieen made in both countries to
suit the people of those countries; in
both the statesmen had tackled first
the primary needs of the great masses
of the people; third, changes had been
made upon food and manufactures at
the same time; fourth, that as In 1842,
Sir Robert Peel recognized the need

ed the memory of Sir Robert Peel by
following his example.
Protection or Tax.
Bad and indefensible as a tariff
must be for protection. Dr. Clark considered it worse as a form of taxation,
since it broke every maximum of taxation laid down by Adam Smith. That
grea*- economist had declared that
taxation should be collected in proportion to the ability of the tax payer
to pay.
"In other words, it should be as the
preacher says when he asks you to go
a little deeper into your pocket on
some special occasion and bids you
give as the Lord has prospered you.
Now I contend that a law that is good
for the Kingdom of Heaven cannot be
bad  for the Dominion of Canada."
Further taxation ought to be certain
and not arbitrary, but nothing was so
arbitrary as taxation under a tariff,
Dr. Clark further held. Again the'
tax should be so contrived as to take
out of the pockets of the people no
more than was required for the carrying on of the business of the state
and this too was a principle broken by
tariff taxation.
Freedom or Slaves.
Dr. Clark was also able to find
parallels between Great Britain and
the United States in the conditions
that gave rise to the changes he had
described. England had been in the
hands of the landlords before free
trade came. In his book "The New
Freedom" Woodrow Wilson had described the. United States government
as being the f er child of special interest. Evidently tbe United States
had aristocracy, however little it
might have democracy.
"if there be such a condition in
Canada, or growing up in Canada,"
said Dr. Clark, "the sooner we are
seared with the symbols of our servitude, the sooner will we make a bolt
for freedom or else let us forever
cease to sing 'Britons Never Shall Be
Slaves.' "
Dr. Clark was also able to find a
parallel between Great Britain and
the United States in the fact that the
driving powers for the changes ln
each came from the populous districts.
Manchester had been the home of Cobden and Bright, while it was the
votes of New England that had carried the large measure of free trade
in the United States.
"I will confess." he added, "that It
requires a great deal of faith to look
forward to the time when Toronto will
supply the chief driving power for financial  reform in  this country."
Will Never Return.
The question might be asked would
these great  countries  return to former  conditions.    He  was  sure  they
Mould not.    Great Britain had rarely
retreated iu her long history and why
doing one-fifth of the overseas trade
should   she  return   today.    She  was
of the world, building and owning 60
per cent of the world's shipping and
selling   two   pounds   worth  of  goods
for every pound she bought.    There
was no tariff wall so strong but her
ships could hreak It.   And in the United  States the  Increased  trade under
:",ie   Underwood   tariff   had   been   so
marked that the country would surely
never go back to the old  conditions.
"In the long run It Is only moral Issues  that  count,"  said   Dr.  Clark,  In
concluding,    "['eel and Gladstone and
Bright and Cobden on the other sldn
and   Woodrow   Wilson   on  this   sider
were    all    working for the common
goal." PAGE TWO

Sufficient success at his trade to raise him from a bandit to a rebel leader and a presidential possibility does not
make a man out of a brute, which has been amply proved
by the most recent exploit of the Mexican constitutionalist
general, Francisco Villa, the murder of the British ranch
owner, William S. Benton.
Villa has been a common highway robber, bandit and
murderer for years, so cold-blooded and lawless that even
the former Mexican government sought to bring about
his capture. With the different changes in the quicksilver politics of the republic, Villa saw a chance to better
his position and he blossomed out into a full-fledged army
leader, recognized by the constitutionalists as their peerless commander, feared by the federals as their most dangerous foe and tolerated by the United States as a possible
solution of the Mexican tangle.
But if Britain's boasted protection of her subjects
and their property in foreign lands has any foundation,
Villa has gone too far. He has killed a British subject
in cold blood.
As the situation stands at present, it does not seem
possible uiat any kind of half measures would meet requirements, though there may be circumstances still to
learn, without knowledge of which it would be rash to
pass premature judgment. However, if all the facts are
known, the case is a plain one. A British subject has been
murdered in cold blood and if the traditions of the empire are to be kept up quick reparation must be made.
If the United States undertakes to perform the task as
the responsible guardian under the doctrine which it upholds, so much the better, but the point is that, unless
there are other attendant circumstances in the Benton
affair which would materially alter its aspect, Villa must
be brought to book and without delay.

about 200 strong and the majority of |
them were actual farmers, all taking
a keen interest In the discussion. The i
only feature which could be objected
to was the continual introduction of
state politics. In speaking of the
growing condition in Oregon the commissioner said:
"On the Pacific slope of that state,
speaking generally, there is plenty of
rain, and in this district they can
raise all kinds of fruit successfully.
They go in for dairy work a good deal.
In the central and eastern sections of
the state, however, irrigation is very
necessary. Plenty of water, brings
good crops of aLfalfa and grain. Fruit
industry is a great factor and is very
similar to that line of agriculture in
British Columbia."
London, Feb. 22.���One big English
railway is now going to Germany for
its locomotives. The Southeastern
railroad recently placed a contract for
10 powerful locomotives with a German at Tegul, near Berlin, the placing
of this contract being of more than
ordinary  interest,  for although some
years ago the Great Central, the Great
Northern nnd the Midland companies
introduced a number of freight engines which have been built in America and the Great Western has introduced French locomotives Into its Pad-
dington and Plymouth express service, no German built locomotives have
ever been Imported into Great Britain, with the exception of some small
narrow guage engines for contracting
purposes. Certainly none have ever
been used for main line service on
any British railroad system.

Commissioner     Ccmpnrcs     Irrigation
Schcrr.ct, in Canada to Oregon���
Gcv>e*-n nent  Supervision.
Oalgary, Fi b, --������ The great difference between the w.-iy in which irrigation is handled in Oregon as compared with western Canada was pointed
out by r. 11. Peters, commission).- of
i: ��� r ,:���, i\ for t',i<* Dominion government, while speaking of his receni vis-
It to the Oregon Irrigation convention
held in Portland,
Thai Hie conditions which existed In
th'* Pat tfic Btate at the present time,
rising nut ci; tbe failure of many private companies and Individuals ���*!.<>
carry oul schemes fcr getting water
on tin* land, after having hi,id to settlers, presents a problem which will
take much solving, was Intimated by
Mr.   Peters'  remarks.
"The condition down there," said
Mr. Peters, "is that a good many plans
have been partially constructed and
then the land has been settled upon,
They have been started In places
when* there never was a possibility
that enougfh water could be supplied
to produce a good crop. Sometimes
the insufficiency of water in the
stream f.-om which the system s-���;;rtee|
was   the   cause   and   sometimes   the
works **���'.* built far too smalt tu
carry the required amount of water.
A oondll  m ,*:' dissatisfaction bas been
the?   result   in   many   cases.
"On the other hand, on tin* Canadian sit!" tin* government irrigation
"trice lec-ps a very careful eye on all
irrigation projects. No scheme i**; allowed to In* started where there Is
ii"t sufficient water in the stream
, Ich is to li'* tile source of the system. The companies muBt file their
plans and the government engineer
must, pass upon them. Any sclvme
develi pee.' e*n this side always has lots
* 1 water and tin* canals an* big enough
to carry the required amount to give
every   land   owner   plenty.
"Tiie qui Minn of finances was giving them considerable trouble in Ore*
i-i ;:. It appears that there are a number 11' schemes partially completed
and ethers where 11,1 work has set
been sta ted. .Money, or ralher lack
of it. is what is holding them up. Ir
rlgatlon bonds have a very poor name
in the i'nited states market and
money is hard to secure. From ills
ousslnns at the convention I learned
that the government of the state intended t:> lake steps tn devote certain
public funds to this work.
"The lack of finances i:; elsei one

not had to face. Th,, cornorntions

"Probably a point which Impressed
them very much down there was that
in Canada a man gets a title to his
water rights as well as the land. The
lack of this precaution in the states
lias been  the cause or much  trouble."
The   convention   in   Portland     met
When an advertiser advertises he wants to reach the people.
Patronage is in 1 ded to make a business a success. In having a
name and business always before the public, or the name of u specially
nr ied product, buyers have it In mind when that kind of a thing
,.s wanted. If lhe ad. is ia a handy place, only a moment is needed
to refer to  it.
What belter 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 Agassiz and the Gulf of Georgia, Every part
of 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 with the names prominently 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 is displayed on severs!
consecutive plages on the top or bottom, or if the names of a special
article were shown there, would It not soon be known in every household on the lower mainland of British Columbia?
If you have something to market, if you want to reacli all the
people all the. time, take a look at the directory. It is a particularly
good medium for most purposes, and very probably it will be just
what you want.
ARD TIMES! A prominent advertiser who spends a fortune every
year in publicity has established a
significant rule. Whenever he no-
a slowing up of business he increases
jus advertising. This is the reason: "When
nusmess is booming it is unnecessary to

business is slow I insist on having my share

and before anybody else gets busy I make
���y contracts for advertising on a big scale
and got my orders in before my competitors
Know what I am doing." The logic and common sense of the attitude of this gentleman

Hampton Court which is one of
the show places of London, and was
once the home of royalty, is a palace
1 habited chiefly by Indigent persons
of rank or distinction that the King
has a right to nominate aei free tenants. Some twenty families occupy
the premises. Their accommodation
ranges from five to twelve rooms, and
If the King were to rent the apartments, he would receiva some $20,000
or $30,000 a year, and the money
would go into his private purr,e. Incidentally It might be remarked that
the nation pays $75,000 a year for
the maintenance of Hampton Court.
The present tenants are. for the mod
part, widows and daughters of army
and navy officers r men who held
mbor offices In the royal household.
Before being eligible* as tenants it
Is necessary that the applicant make
rn affidavit to the effect that his or
her income is not more, than $1,000
e year. In the other royal residences
no such rule applies, and at the present time many apartments ar occupied by persons well able to pay for
their accommodation.
A case in point Is that of the Countess Fedora Gleichen, a cousin of the
King, who was granted apartments by
King Edward, or rather her father
was given the privilege of living rent
free by Queen Victoria, and King Kdward confirmed tho daughter In the
premises at St. James' P' lace.
It was this countess Who was requested by the agents of King George
to pay rent, but she declined upon
the scon* of poverty. It is notorious
that the countess, who Is a sculptor,
of note, and la also in receipt of a
pension, is earning some $20.on" nr
$2.'..000 a year, and can well afford
to pay good rent. Nevertheless, the
emit tess has refused to move or pay
rent, and has left It to the King to
decide upon any further steps.
The gift residences around Windsor are also said to be a source of considerable annoyance to King C.eorge,
wtio finds 1 hem occupied by persons
who have no particular claim upon
him or upon the nation. The tenants have the advantage of the owners In this respect, that King George

There are nine of these residenees

Manchester City to Be Heard From	
How the Teams Stand���
Other Results.
The usual batch of surprises were
unfurled on Saturday in connection
with thw fourth round of the Knglitn
cup competition, Manchester City's
defeat of the Blackburn Hovers and
the victory of Burnley over the Bolton
Wanderers feature two of the upsets
in form. Probably the strain of holding premier position of the first division caused the defeat of Blackburn
but to be licked by a lowly club like
the City conies as a general surprise.
Burnley's victory at Turf .Moor shows
the strength and come-back spirit of
a club which years ago was fighting

the London grounds, while West Ham
I'nited could only make a draw with
Liverpool, also at. London.    In -he re
play, the Anfield men should be able
to take the measure of the southerners.
Of the remaining teams, some clever and exciting football is sure to be
displayed before the trophy is finally
won.    Aston   Villa do not appear  to
be  the   Villans of years ago,  seeing
that they nosed out a 2-1 victory over

Leader of Chicago Cubs Is Forced to
Sell  His Holdings���Good Thing
for  Organized   Ball.
By getting rid of Charles Webb
Murphy, owner of the Chicago National league club, the magnates of the
senior organisation have eliminated a
tliotn in the flesh of organized ball
which for a time threatened the very
Bright   Colors   and   Ribbed   Material*
Lead In Spring Fashions.
It goes without saying that nicely
ind cleverly tailored suits of ribbed
ratine nnd velours de laine cloths will
be quickly bought up at tbe sales tbe
���hops are uow offering. Those who
think of tbe morrow will go for tbe
lighter makes, as spring advances with
positive strides once we are launcbed
Into the new year. She who Is yearning for color will find these ribbed
ratines peculiarly satisfying in vivid
shades. It is a sure thing that such
suits as these in cerise, purple or that
nice green tbat ls about just now will
not have to wait long on their pegs.
Tailors nre turning to color chiefly
because these new tailor materials present it with sveh alluring texture. The
less these fabrics are trimmed tbe better. Just important buttons, with perhaps the collar facings of contrasting
fabric, although even this last is at a
discount, as ribbed ratine and velours
make such agreeable collar facings
themselves. By the way, there is a delightful chic about long wrap coats ia
these materials.
Making steady headway in the approval of all those whose aim it ls to
keep in the front ranks of fashion are
the beautiful Bulgarian embroideries.
These, for the nonce, have largely ousted the Japanese, Chinese and oriental
(fancies. "Bulgar" is the pet abbreviation of the moment. There is even a
"Bulgar" cloth, a rather rough, clumsy
weave with a patterned border, a woven effect to simulate tbe broderies
characteristic of the troublous Bulgarian state.
To many minds, however, quite the
most fascinating medium of expression
Is provided in some little colors, adjustable affairs, tbat give tbe most delightful and novel touch to either corsage or coat. The color harmonies introduced are singularly artistic, a dull
oxydized thread frequently entering
into tbe scheme, sometimes as a narrow bordering tbeme or again Interwoven with the groundwork. The colors generally trend to sombetness, but
there Is no mistake at all as to the extremely attractive nature of the "Bulgar" colorings and embroideries nor
any doubt that they are prepared to
take a leading place ln tb* lorthcem-
ing season's fashions.
King of Ontario's Game Birds Nearly

only a matter of a short time when it

Burleigh, a Scotchman, was an
oliicor ia the Confederate army In
the I'nited States civil war and was
lieutenant in the seizure of tne
steamers Phiio Parsons and Island

United States gunboat Michigan on
Lake Erie. The filibusters, after tbe
failure of the expedition, scattered to
various parts of Ontario, and Burleigh went to Guelph, where Alex.
W. Wright, now of Toronto, was a
young lad in Tbe Herald office. Previously Burleigh had stayed in
Guelph, and rumor has It that he
had secretly induced friends he made
there and at Preston to cast a cannon for blm for belligerent uses.
The United States Government,
through a spy, had learned of bis
whereabouts, and Canadian officers
were detailed to arrest him for piracy and for breach of the neutrality
laws. Burleigh had been warned
from Toronto that officers were on
his trail, and he encountered young
Wright and suggested that tbey go

cotton and from South America the

well-known hosiery.
There, behind that obviously prosaic truck-load of freight was the whole romance
of modern commerce -the skilled production, the universal demand for food, drink
and raiment, and the world-wide distribution of the things we use every day.
And then I speculated why we use these things every day, instead of some other
things; and that brought me plump back to my own job of advertising.
The names of some of the boxes on the lorrie were known everywhere to-day, but
had been unknown a few years ago; and I saw then more clearly than ever before
that Advertising is really a great channel digger. It is like the Panama Canal. You
can sail from Montreal to Vancouver now, around the Horn. You can get there,
but it is going to take months. A year or so from now you will sail through the
Panama Canal and chop the journey lo less than half. A ncw channel will have
been dug.
The great names in commerce to-day are those of the manufacturers who have let
modern advertising steam-shovel a channel across the isthmus of distributing
The great names in the commerce of to-morrow will be those of men who widen and
dredge this channel so that the greater traffic may pass smoothly and quickly from
the source of production to the homes of the consumer.

in Object Lesson In Rapid Civilization Is to He Found In the Work
of die Divisional Engineering
Staff of the G.T.P. In the Yellow,
head "ass���Tennis Court and
Fancy  Dress Parties.
The engineer who foreruns tbe
nands of steel tbat carry civilization
on their backs accepts tbe loneliness
of tbe wilderness as part of bis
day's work. He accepts it, but alters it immediately. He controls
conditions, bends them to his wblms,
considers them but tools for his enjoyment, and emerges to the glare
of "the front" wltb every vein pulsing, every cell alive, just as ready
to plunge Into the gaiety offered
him as be was to manufacture his
own pleasures away back there,
where only mountain goats and grlz-'
zlies were neighbors, says W. Lacy
Amy in Tbe Saturday Globe.
Wben tbe divisional engineer of
the Grand Trunk Pacific selected as
his camping ground the compara-
tively level valley at tbe confluence
of the Atbabaska and Miette Rivers,
ln the Yellowbead Pass, steel was
still two years back towards Edmon-
toni Two years of uncertain mountain weather faced him���two win-
ten of dreary Imprisonment. And ,
with him a score of assistants,
clerks, axemen and cooks stared Into
b. >lshment from friends. Irregular
mails, uncertain supplies, certain
dangers���stared and stayed. They
were willing to trust to themselves.
The camp, a dozen shacks of
varying size and design, housing respectively the divisional engineer
and his family, the chief clerks, the
junior clerks, the cooking and eating conveniences, and the axemen,
besides the Instruments and sup- :
plies, was built with a long stay in
view. Water, the first necessity, was
piped from an improved lake up an
adjacent mountain, a convenience
that was ready at hand when the ,
new town of Fitzhugh was later
established as a divisional point on
the new railway.
j      In the shack   nf the   chief   clerks
' the   fittings were  good   enough   for
town quarters.    Eastern rugs cover- !
I ed  the floors of  hewed  logs;   build-
| ers'  paper concealed the walls and
supplied    foundation    for    a    quiet
shade of ingrain.    From a moulding
of natural boughs hung home-fraro-
ed   pictures.     In   one  corner  of  the
living    room    the    most    expensive
phonograph reflected the glare of the
huge centre lamp   and   livened   the
Spare moments.
Last winter gaiety revelled in the
Fitzhugh valley. Steel had passed
the camp seventy miles, but still
every inch of grade was controlled
from the little group of shacks that
had become so comfortable. Winter in the Pass had usually been a
period of silence and   moodiness,

The Third Degree
Chas. Klein's drama founded on the inside workings of a great
police* department. This play ran a -Ahole season in a Broadway
playhouse and did a record business in first class theatres in every
big city in America. The story is thrilling and Itense while its appeal is so broad and general that it hits all classes of young and old,
high-brow and low-brow of picture fans. It is in five reels, and
is a fine example of l.nbin's justly  famous  photographic  production.

How Premier Itorden Helped the
Chairman Out of a Hole.
Shortly after Premier Borden waB
elected to office he was visiting one
of the rural constituencies of his native Province of No^a Scotia. The
president of the township Conservative Association was authorized to extend a welcome on behalf of the association to the First Minister. He
decided that things should be done
differently than usual, anl Instead of
reading a formal and stereotyped address of congratulation, he propose-!
that a few appreciative words, spoken orally, would serve the purpose
much better and appear as If they
came straight from the heart.    Mr.
T  Intended to commit what he
bad to say to memory, but memory
plays queer pranks at times when we
desire to place most reliance upon It.
President T got on very well, but
the ringing applause and the size of
the crowd somewhat shattered his
equilibrium. Thinking the people
were anxious to hear Mr. Borden, be
hastily concluded his "few remarks,"
after paying a high tribute to the
Conservative staterman and the signal success which he had attained at
the polls.
"Bul why go on. "he added. "You,
sir! have heard of much of l'ati of
your fine qualifications, dignity,
sound judgment and splendid ability
for the office to which yoi have just
been elected by th** people of Canada,
that If I continue with such a recital
you will actually begin to think there
is really something n what 1 am
The audience caught the point and
laughed uproariously, b-it the chairman could se" no joke In this reference, and nervously began to look
around, wondering whether his collar hael come loose, somenody had
Biolen away bis seal or pinned a comic
picture on the back of his coat.
Mr. Borden quickly came to the
rescue and warmly thanked the gathering for the hearty greetings extender by the chairman, antl then to relieve th j tense situ?tion an', place
that Individual somewhat at ease,
told of a distinguished resident of a
certain Western city who was returning to the scenes of his boyhood.
Tbe people had decided to get up a
demonstration in his honor. The former citizen was plainly touched by
the tribute of respect, and being desirous of showing that he still felt
thoroughly at home and not above tbe
common folk, started his reply: 'For
this splendid and whole-hearted welcome 1 am grateful to you from the
bottom of my heart, ladies and gentlemen���but no! I will not call you
that, for 1 know you all too well here
to greet you by such a title."
This little story broke the ice and
made the chairman, wbo committed
the previous "bull," feel more at
home for the re3t of the evening, but
he declares that ��.ext time he w .1
read an address of welcome to any
political  magnates.
Held Court In Auto.
Judge Taylor, of the Ed n lton
District Court, recently put bis large
touring car to one of '-he. oddest uses
which the west lias yet experienced.
Operating printing p esac-s and driving farm machinery are by this time
quite common emtr"ency services for
the modern motor car. Juil e Taylor
now establishes it as a le;;al and very
convenient device for criminal hearings. Recently the Koyal Mounted
Foilce arrested a man, whj pleaded
guilty and askej a summary trial.
Anxiou to clear thel. c'ocket of the
case the police communicated wit i
. udge Taylor, who in turn found thai
_e would bo unable to reach Fori
Saskatchewan ln time for ath ������ trial.
However, he compromise'1 by oi'fcring
to meet the r-olice and their prisoner on the highway bordering the district. The prisone*. was taken to tb i
scene, and when the judge chugg. 1
up in his motor He ioruie of a *ri *
inal proceeding were cr.rrled out in
proper detail. Judge Taylor decided
the case, sitting in the Mnnean, registering his sentence in a picket diary
for transference to tue court record.
Then the police saluu.', mounted
their borses, and dashed off to tbe
nearest jail, wb.le the judge calmly
cranked up and bustled back to Edmonton, where ie arrived in time 10

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
in advertisements: ''Our store is your
store." "We pay the clerks for your service." 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 di-
��� recting 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 accord
ingly. 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.

companion In arms, George Marceau.
who brought with liii.-. a clipping
from the Douglas Conserv ., co, tailing an account of tue death of Jame-
son and telljug of tb i disposition ot

received  a  lettei  from i.r  attorney
Confirming the legacy.
in dining cars, hotels, restnurauta ami
our own homes may be an even greater menace to our health than defective
plumbing is the fact brought out by
some interesting investigations made
by Surgeou Cummins of tbe British
It used to be thought that if our servants' hands���and our own���were washed with reasonable frequency we were
safe, but Dr. Cummins shows tbat even
the most scrupulous cleansing will not
relieve hands that have been ln contact
with disease germs from the liability
of infecting others, lu short. Dr. Cummins declares thut so long as we live
ln this world of dirt and microbes our
bonds can never be really clean.
To prove his contention Dr. Cummins
dipped tbe tip of his forefinger lu a
liquid containing millions of typhoid
bacilli. The finger was next rinsed In
an antiseptic solution, then lu very
cold water and tben in water that was
almost boiling. After all this cleansing
It was washed In a small quantity of
sterile water. This water wheu analyzed showed no less than 313 colonies
of typbold bacilli.
Not satistied wfth this discouraging
[iroof of the futility of clean hands, the
doctor proceeded to soak his infected
finger tip In pure alcohol Tben he
washed It again In sterile water. This
time the analysis of the water revealed
four colonies of typhoid baeilli.
Another experiment made by Dr.
Cummins was to rest a typhoid laden
finger tip for just an instant on tho
surface of a bowl of soup. Tbe soup
was then allowed to stand for twenty-
four Lours. When finally analyzed It
revealed neurly 40,000 typhoid bacilli to
every cubic inch.���New Vork America u.
