His Honor Judge Howay's judicial hammer hit the
real estate speculation nail fair on the head the other day
when the learned judge characertized a certain form of
realty manipulation as "gambling," and the alleged profits accruing therefrom as "stage money."
When the buying and selling fever was at its height
there were many men who rated themselves as worth
thousands of dollars simply because they held by a first
payment properties valued at certain sums. Assuming
that the value placed on this land was correct, the false
sense of security in which many thus dwelt was just as
groundless as though the land were held at prices far
above the real and actual market figures.
With real estate changing hands every day and quotations advancing, there were scores who did not stop to
seriously consider from what source they would secure
the second, third or fourth payments on property which
they had agreed to purchase. They simply knew they had
put down one installment and were trusting to luck to sell
it at an advance before the next payment fell due. Ther
came the easing-off in the real estate game, a scramble for
money that could not be got and hundreds were stripped
bare. Men who have carelessly rated themselves as worth
twenty-five, fifty, one hundred thousand dollars or even
more, hadn't a wheelbarrow load of earth left in theii
names. They were not only broke; they were in debt as
Even then, had they adjusted themselves to changed
conditions, things might have been better, but they could
not realize that the game was up and for months they lived
on in idleness, going deeper into debt, but still hoping.
The short period of easy money and wild speculation had

The lesson for many has been a hard one; perhaps
there are some who believe it has been unnecessarily severe, but it is one that will not be forgotten, and, if the readjustment of conditions on a sound basis were the only

Montreal, March 6.���A strong plea
for better support from the laity was
voiced by thi- Bishop of Montreal in
his charge to the synod, when he stated that if another year like Mis were
experienced it would become necessary to consider reducing the stipends
of the clergy. Some si^ns of enthusiastic sup|Kirt were needed and he
called upon the people to give more
freely, denouncing the luxury of the
rich and their competition for Commercial and social distinction.
In opening his address Bishop Far-
t'.iing recommended that a home be
obtained lor sons of clergy where
they could study. If this were successful the scheme would be extended to
girls. It was important he said to
have the business men at meetings of
the synod. Last year the missionary
contributions to the foreign field de
creased $471.
Another year such as 1913. he eon*
inii'd would mean that the reduction
or the stipends of the clergy would be
considered, owing to the unsatisfactory year, parti; due to the money
stringency the Canadian sphere of activity in the foreign field had to be
limited. If they failed to Christianize
| no one else would try. In .Montreal
the Anglicans were the strongest non-
Roman communion and in some par-
: IShOS the only one. There was B great
.necessity of gathering the social life
j around t'.ie church and so keeping its
young people away from the dangers
of the c'tv,
The difficulty of supply in many of

Interesting Facts About the Making
of Theatrical Spooks.
Although the t'.host 1b no longer the
main ft-ature and attraction of stage
representation, as it was hfty or sixty
yearB ago, it   is   still   an important
character,   said   tho   manager  of   a
London (ring.) theatre tbe other day.
lu  very  small  theatres  where stage
mechanics  are conspicuous  by  their
absence, gbosta are often as Bolid and
unrealistic as tbey were in the days of
John Kemble and Mrs.  Jordan, and
it  is not  unusual  for  the  ghoBt of
Hamlet's father to be attired in a suit
of real  armour.     One Buch  -apparition" tripped up while coming on the
stane, and, falling down with a very
metallic thud, rolled slowly towards
the footlights, causing a spectator to
shriek out,   "Old iron!"
Tbe spooks that haunt the London
stages to-day are fairly 'realistic,"
and wben Sir Herbert Tree produced
, -Macbeth" at His Majesty's Theatre
the other year he gave his audience
ghosts which were really vaporous
and unearthly, gliding, transparent,
mysterious. Macbeth wilted in terror at the appearance of Banquo's
spook, and everyone declared tbat
the entrance and general "get-up" of
this member of tbe spirit world was
the most ingenious and impressive
ever aeen at a theatre.
I think it was Charles Kean who
lirst resorted to illusion lo make a
stage ghost a little transparent. When
he produced -Macbeth" at the old
Princess's Theatre, he manufactured
a contrivance which allowed Banquo's
ghost to appear through a transparent column.
Later on,   when   Mrs.   Ann  Rad-
1 cliffe's "Romance of the Forest" was
staged   at   Covenl   Garden   Theatre,
those  responsible  for  its  production
arranged that '.he spook in the piece
should    be   seen    by    the   audience
! through a gauze of bl-.ilsh-e.rey color,
so that the too corr-oreal effect of a
, live actor might be removed. Follet, i
i (he clown, -celebrated for his eating
1 of carrots In the pantomimes,"  was
tin- shade, and he wore a closely-tlt-
I ting suit of grey  mater,al, sewn to- ;
geth.r In the form of armor, and In ]
. thin be Uoat-.-d across the stage like
a shadow   behind  a  sheet of  gauze,
j much to the delight of the spectators.
When the old playhouse in Drury ;
i l,ane opened,  In   1794,  with  a per-
i romance   of    "Macbeth,"    Banquo's
��� ghost  was omitted.      Although    Mr.
1 Kemble'B acting was fine enough  to
make   the    audience    almost   believe
that  they  really  did  see  the  ghost,
the  people   were   not   satisfied   until
the system they had been used to was
re-adopted, and   Banquo's  shade   allowed to trot bodily across the boards.
In   those   days   theatre-goers   would
have a spectre, notwithstanding that
the spectre was a   -super," in a white
sheet with a streak of red paint on
his brow, who thrust himself through
a trap-door or rose   from behind a
card-board  tomb  wben  a  blow  was
struck upon a tlu can and a spoonful
of blue fire ignited in the wings.
Reflecting mirrors and the cinematograph are coming in general use at
the theatres, and with them It has
been found possible to manufacture
ghosts capable of striking terror Into
the hearts of all followers of the occult. It Is Interesting to know that
at the Autrlon Theatre, in Paris,
when Gerald Hauptmann's "Hannele"
war acted, in which the men are spirits seen by a dying child, all the
phantoms were he reflections of actors cast from mirrors behind tho
stage on to the bed. In much the
same way the ghosts ln "Richard
III." have been t-ro.echt Into being.
Quite an assembly of apparitions are
supposed to rise up and address
themselves alternately to Richard
and to Richmond. The spirits of
Prince Edward. Henry VI.. Clarence,
i Rivers, Grey, Vauphan, Hastings, the
two young Prince;, Queen Anne, and
Buckingham have to denounce with
curses the tyra lt and bless bis
, opponent.

Grand Trunk Pacific Town���G. T. P. Freight and Passenger Division  )
Headquarters, and the Dominating Centre of the Bulkley Valley I
Was  Nearly All  Taken   Up   Today
Smithers is the only freight and
passenger division headquarters
on the main line of the Grand
Trunk Pacific between the western terminal, Prince Rupert, and
Prince George. The railway
cempany is spending over $300,-
000 in Smithers for shops, round
house and other division point
facilities. This means a big railway payroll and prosperity for
the town.
Smithers is the dominating center of the rich Bulkley Valley
which has, according to government bulletins, about 300,000
acres of arable land, besides
large deposits of coal, silver, copper and lead and almost unlimited water power. Smithers is,
without question, the fastest
growing young town in the interior of British Columbia. It is
bound to be the only big town in
the interior between Prince Rupert and Prince George.

Cost of living high?
Why should I care when I
can make more use of my oven? Who ever
heard anybody complain that home made
biscuits, muffins and things appeared on the
table too often? Hob���he's a chemist���
says that ten cents worth of wheat supplies
far more food value and real energy than a
round steak. No indeed, I don't buy much
meat, and we're all the better for it. Hut
don't imagine that ordinary biscuits or
cakes will do. Look to the flour they're
made from! Make it ROYAL STANDARD
(your grocer sells it) and then your oven
will be a veritable treasurechest for goodies
liarht and feathery, wholesome and digestible.

Memento of Chevalier de  la  Veren��
drje Ha> Heen Struck Off.
Tbe Manitoba Free PreBs of Winnipeg has marked tue Christmas season of 1913 by ,he presentation of a
ri lie of unique historic interest. This
is an exact reproduction in miniature
of the lead tablet deposited on March
30, 1743, in a bluff overlooking the
Missouri rive- by the Chevalier de la
Verendrye as evidence of his having
taken possession by right of discovery
for the King of France of the whole
northwestern part of what is now tbe
United States, together wltb a large
part of what is now Western Canada,
as far as the Rocky Mountains. The
original tablet, now treasured by tbe
Government of the State of North
Dakota, was found in March last by
a young girl while playing with her
companions near the public school of
Fort Pierre, which is on tho west
bank of the Missouri river, across
from the city of Pierre, the capital of
North Dakota. The Chevalier de la
Verendrye hold i a high place on the
long roll of French explorers of the,
seventeenth and eighteenth centuries,
who blazed their way across the \asl
untrodden regions of ihe continent.
It was in September, I7:>s, tbat
Pierre de la Vi rendrye and hia
youngest son, Francois, arrived at the
junction of the; Rod and Assiniboine
rivers, the first white men lo view
the site of the city of Winnipeg.
The tablet, which iei about eight
inches wide, contains on its obverse
s'do a Latin Inscription as follows:
"Anno XXVI. Regnl Ludovlci XV.
Pro Rege IllUBtrlSBlmo Domino Mar-
chione de BeauharnolO MDCCXXXI,
Petrus Gaultier de la Ver< ndrye Pound." That is "In the twenty-sixlh
year of the reign of Louis V.. in the
name" of the King, our most illustrious Sovereign, and of Monsieur the
Marquise of Beauharnols, Pi.rro
Gaultier de la Verendrye placed (this
tablet) 1741." On the re'erse side,
cut in French hy the point of a dagger, is Inscribed' "Pose par le Cbev-
alyer de la Vr. le St. I.ouy la (.otitic: to. A. Miotte I- 30 . -<ts 17 4"."
Translated this means: "Deposited by
ihe Chevalier d ��� la Verendrye. Witnesses. St. Louis la I.ondetle, A. Miotte. M .rrh 30, 1743." The difference in the dales is due to the fact
thru the firs: was stamped al Que-
bec, where the Marquis de Beauharnols, Governor of Canada, at the time,
gave the tablet to de la Verendrye
as he was setting out in search for
Hi" Western Sea.
In an effort to discover the Western Sea, which il was limn believed
was a comparatively email body of
water separating North America from
the Orient, Chevalier de la Verendrye, traveling with a party of warriors of Bow Ind'an*. : aw for .he first
time th" Rocky Mountains 00 New
Year's Day, 17ta\ He decided to cross
the mountains, and behold the Wester*) Sph but found it necessary after
burying the tablet to retur to Fort
la Reine. the site of the present City
of Portage la fcjralrie, where his father was awaiting him. For thirteen
>cars father and sons had followed
thi dream of thi: Western Sea in
vain, but tbey c'i cove-ed a sea of
prairies, a sea of mountains, and two
great rivers, the Sasfcatrh, wan and
the Missouri.

from the paiu at once. I took a second and third box of GIN PILLS after which

He told me the calculus was reduced ia
size, still he could not relieve me of it,
although he trite! for two and a balf hours.
I returned home and continued to take
OIN PILLS as they reduced the pain very
much, but I did not expect they would relieve
