an influence on the situation which
has developed by the bringing to British Columbia by ? Japanese ship, the
Komagata Maru, of four hundred un-
desiraile Kast Indians, dropped anchor in Semiahmoo bay this afternoon
about two o'clock. It is reported here
that the shipB did not wish to arrive
at Vancouver ahead of their schedule
and chose this spot as the safest anchorage for their waft.
The pair of big sea fighters, each
of which carries a complement of
cloee to saves hundred men, struck
Semiahmoo bay shortly after noon,
and, after cruising about a while, dropped anchor. From all appearances
they are making themselves comfortable fo; t'.ie night.
The arrival of the cruisers at this

with its summer seaBhore population,
created a great deal of interest and
many of the occupants of the summer
homes and cottages, went out in canoes aud launches to inspect the representatives of Japan's sea might.

is absolutely no doubt ln the world

GRADUATING tXERCISES
OF ST. ANN'S ACADEMY
Splendid ProRram Presented j���1;
By Members of the
Senior Class.
List of Winners of Medals and Honors
and Prizes Awarded for Excellence in Various Departments.
The annual closing exercises at
.- Ann's academy were successfully
carried out in the large assembly
hall yesterday afternoon when a musical and sp-eclunnkiiig program, which
together with the presentation of
diplomas and medals, was gout:
through.
Inside the assembly hall, which
overlooks Albeit Crescent and tlie
eraser river, the pleasing color
scheme of the class of 1914, silver
and blue, added to by roses of all
hues, lent color to the white dresses
of the students, the scheme being
broken  here  and  there by  the
address,   her   part   being
taken by   Mis.s  Gertrude
Kdmonds.   a   member  of
dietory
lltably
Watson, of
the class.
Throughout the whole program the
work of the teaching staff was plainly apparent, every student taking part
showing a thoroughness of learning
and beating which gave credit to the
institution. Particularly so was the
elocutionary efforts of the members
of the senior class In presenting Lord
Tennyson's "The Lady of Sharlott,"
which was closely followed by an essay. "The Allegory of l'oents." by
Miss Genevieve Flynn.
Addresses were made by Hev. Father Beck and Father Besette, of St.
Peter's church. Father Heck dwelt
upon tin necessity of education In
the present day in order to be successful, although education must be
backed up with all the requirements
of character . Referring to St. Ann's
academy, he point, d out that the aim
towards the students was not only
Intellectual  but  also  led  towards  the

Vancouver, June 1!*. Members of
the Legion of Frontiersmen, a semiofficial military organization, may be
called upon to act as an arm-id guard
over the Hindus on board the Komagata Maru in case the vessel sal la
for the Orient while the Japanese
cruisers are here.
Capt. Q. H. Sloan, officer commanding the Frontiersmen, has issued au
crder to members of the corps to hold
themselves in readiness for an emergency between noon on Saturday : id
midnight on Sunday.
"Realising the possibility of international complications in case either
the Canadian militia or the men of
the Japanese warship ate called upon
to take any steps wilh regard to
guarding the Hindus on the Maru.
the Legion, which is not a regular
militia corps, has volunteered its services during the time the Maru ts ex
pected to start back for the Orient,''
declared Capt, Sloan this morning.
"The regular strength of the Frontiersmen is about fifty, but at the
present time, many of the men, being
surveyors and engineers, are out of
the city and we could not get together more than about twenty-five.
They are to be prepared to gather at
any time, uniformed, armed and ready
tor duty at the corner of Burrard and
Hastings streets This order will apply from Saturday noon to Sunday
night."
Delicate Job.
Should the Mam be started on her
return trip across the Pacific any tlma
during the slay here of the Japanese
cruisers, it is realized that then-
would be grave danger of international trouble in the event of the Japanese warship crews attempting to interfere in tiny way with the Hindus
within the three-mile limit. The military authorities here might also hesitate a long while before sending out
London, June 19.--The "Irish Volunteer," the official organ of the Nationalist Volunteers, states that nearly
200,000 Irishmen are now drilling and
arming with the avowed object of
achieving and protecting Irish freedom, now that Mr. Kedmond has
pointed out that volunteers are a political necessity.
"We may look forward confidently,"
j sayg the paper, "to a withdrawal of
I the proclamation forbidding the im-
| portal ion of arms. If the proclamation
I cannot be defeated, it must be fought
I by some means, but we must have the
jguns."
I The journal declares that at leaBt
' sixty thousand men are capable ot
using rifles and declares the proclamation an insult and a menace. Unless
Mr. Redmond vetoes it, a loud outcry-
will be rais-d by the volunteers, and
political organizations throughout the
country during the next two weeks.
Mr. Devlin, with the Nationalist
leader left for Belfast last night to
superintend the organization.
At the New Westminster board of
trade meeting last evening, at which
Col. Taylor, M. P., was present, a
telegram from the minister of finance
Ottawa, announcing the intention of
the government to place an elevator
on the government dock at Vancouver, waB read, and the reply of the
board of trade strongly urging the establishment of another elevator on
the Fraser river, and pointing out that
the Vancouver elevator was no use
foe the Fraser river shipping, was also submitted.
President W, (i. MaeQuarrie said
the reply had been sent alter a conference with Col. Taylor, M.I'., and
Harbor Commissioner White. It seemed advisable now that they should take
some steps to secure an elevator for
the Fraser. Perhaps Col. Taylor, who
had fought so consistently and well
for the Fraser, had something to say
tn. this connection.

Canada, practically the whole male

on their way up the coast to Vancouver, where they are expected to have
an influence on the situation which
has developed by the bringing to British Columbia by ? Japanese ship, the
Komagata Maru, of four hundred undesirable East Indians, dropped anchor in Semiahmoo bay this afternoon
about two o'clock. It Is reported here
that the shlpB did uot wish to arrive
at Vancouver ahead of their schedule
and chose this spot as the safest anchorage for their wait.
The pair of big sea fighters, each
of which carries a complement of
close to seven hundred men, struck
Semiahmoo bay shortly after noon,
and, after cruising about a while, dropped anchor. From all appearances j
they are making themselves comfortable fo: the night. '
The arrival of the cruisers at this

created a great deal of interest and
many of the occupants of the summer

the reply had been sent after a conference with Col. Taylor, M.I'., and

some steps to secure an elevator for

had fought so consistently and well
for the Fraser, had something to say

the fact that it Is only in the capital
that ihe vote went In favor of the
Socialists, and that elsewhere throughout the country and in other important centres it is the Radicals that the
Conservatives must guard against.
Yet to an onlooker there would seem
to be little choice as between the one
or the other party in array against the
government. There is little doubt that
for the first time ln Argentine history
a really strong opposition has been
registered.
Considerable speculation is rife as to
the extent to which the Socialists will
take advantage of thei, gain ln this
city. That the recent victory was due
to votes of naturalized citizens is conceded. The Radicals are much concerned because of the apparent ease
with which the socialistic element
swept them aside, und one of their
leading senators, Senator Crotoo, took
occasion to propose that the law gov*
coming the voting pewer of naturalized citizens should be amended so as
to minimize the impc-tance of theBe
new arrivals. In official quarters this
proposal met with scant consideration.

There is. perhaps, no better example of the remarkable progress being
made by Canada in providing transportation facilities throughout the
length and breadth of the Dominion
than the construction of an automobile highway from ocean to ocean,
which is nearing completion, says
the American consul general in his
report to Washington.
Twenty-five years ago the plan to
builtl a railroad from Halifax to Vancouver was considered visionary and
impracticable. To cross the barren
wastes above Lake Superior, the vast
prairies of Saskatchewan, and the
mountain passes of Alberta and British Columbia was then considered by-
some of the best engineers to be physically impossible. Yel today one
great continental railway is under suc-
: cessful operation, another is nearing
completion and a third is under const: uctlon.
A few years ago no one would have
thought of  motoring  through  Canada
\ from ocean to ocean among the possi-
i bilities of the near  future, but today
! automobiles   are   running  almost  the
entire length    of    the new Canadian]!
transcontinental  highway, and only a I
few more links of the chain are need- I
led to permit the motorist to make the IJ
I trip In safety and comfort. From Hal-1��
Ifax to Sudbury, from Winnipeg to the!"
Great Divide, the trial is nearly fin-1
ished,  and   the  more  difficult  roads
through the mountains of British Columbia are rapidly nearing completion.
A third is under construction.
When   completed   this   will   furnish i
one   of   the   longest   and   one   of   the j
most   beautiful   and  pictureseiue  auto-
mobile routes in the world. From the
land  Of Acadia  to  the  shores of  the ���
Pacific It will run 3,000 miles through
fertile   plains   and   valleys   and   over j
mountain ranges.
Most Picturesque Part.
The most picturesque part of the trip
Is from  Calgary  to  Vancouver.  From I
Calgary the :oute leaves the prairies.;
��� mounts the  foothills of the  Rockies, !
! and   penetrates   into   their  fastnesses (
DO  miles away at  Banff, from  where |
. the   road   turns   into   the   Vermilion
1 Pass and then down the valley oft the j
Columbia to Cranbrook.    Already thej
run  from   Cranbrook  to  Creston   has i
; been made by automobile, and it will
not be long until the trail to Nelson.
j Grand  Forks, and  Vancouver will be j
: finished. i
When this great route is completed
it will not be necessary for Canadian
i motorists to incur the expense of for*;
i eign travel, for no ftner trip can be
! made under the flag of any land than i
; Lhat over  this transcontinental  high- \
way.   Even the Tyrolean or Swiss Alps j
cannot  surpass  the  Selkirks,  or   the I
1 Rocky mountains for grandeur, beau-
ty and variety of scenery,    ln a few
hours the motorist can travel Switzerland from border to border, but it will ;
take many days to see all the splen- ���
dors of the great northwest.
Interesting Side Trips.
An interesting feature of this route
will be the number and variety of at-
attractive side trips it offers. Many
new roads connecting with the main
highway and suitable for motor driving are already finished and others
are tinder construction, with open up
new regions of beauty. One of these
will be the road up Mount Revelstoke,
four miles of which is already finished: nine miles more of a 1 per cent,
graded macadam roadway will extend
it to the summit. 6,150 feet above sea
level, from where the panoramic view-
is excellent. Kor To miles on either
side extend the snow-capped peaks j
of the. Hold, llleclllewaet and Selkirk
ranges. Thousands of feet berow in j
the pine-clad valleys can be caught j
i glimpses of the Columbia and lllecil- j
i lewaet rivers. By easy pony trails j
I from the e-halet can be reached two)
I beautiful lakes Eva and Millar���and
from their rocky shores a panorama
Of the Oreat Northern glacier is unfolded.
Other scenic attractions along which
tlie great motor highway will pass are
the Columbia and Windniere valleys, l|
the Vermilion pass and Kootenay and j a
Okanagan lakes. | -
The  completion   of this  transcontinental motor trail will be of interest
not only to An-erieen motorists as anj
attracUve scenic route, but it will also I"
;g!ve impetus to the automobile trade!
I in Canada, opening up new  markets
, for Ante ican-made cats and increase
trade opportunities ln that line. I

"I can highly recommend "l-'ruit-a-tives" as they did me an awful lot of
gooel and 1 cannot speak too highly about ihem. Al-out four years ago, I
commenced taking "1'ruit-a-tives" for a general break-down anel they-Mid me a
world of good. We bought a gooel many dollars' worth but it was money well
spent because they did all that you claim for them. Their action is so pleasant,
compared with other laxativt-s, that I found ONLY pleasure, as well as health,
in taking Ihem. Tbey seemed to me to be particularly suited to women, on
account of their mile! ami gentle action, and I trust that some other women may
start taking "l-'ruit-a-tives" after reading my letter, and if they do, I am satisfied
tiie results will be the same as in my own case". Mas. \V. N. KELLY
A blood purifier, a general tonic, a builder of health and strength, "Fruit-
a-tives" is one of tlie great discoveries of the century in curative medicine. One
of the valuable properties of "l-'ruit-a-tives" is its marvellous cleansing powers.
When these tablets are taken, they act on the three great eliminating organs uf
the body���the bowels, kidneys and skin, "l-'ruit-a-tives" keeps the system free
of waste matter, prevents the formation of an exces.1 of uric acid, anel insures the
blood being pure and clean. "Fruit-a-tives'' sweetens the stomach, increases the
flow oi the digestive juices, makes digestion complete and enables thwystem te
absorb anel assimilate an abundance of nourishment from the food eaten.
"Fruit-a-tives" builds up, invigorates, strengthens the whole System. As
a general tonic, there is nothing else quite so good. And these tablets are so
mild in action, so pleasant to take, that they are particularly suitetl to women.

Had the will been made during good health, the most deserving persons���according to the

'��� ten  by a sub-committee from  a  host.
| of candidates, and latterly  was interviewed along with the nine others, by
the   selecting   committee,   who   on   a
second   ballot   recommended   htm   for
the post.
Mr. Abbott will start on a monthly j
salary of $100 and travelling expenses..
The choice of Mr. Abbott ls considered a   most   excellent one.    He has
had   twenty  years   experience   in   the
various districts in the Fraser valley, i
extending from  the  Delta  up  to  Mis-'
sion.    After    several    years    in    the >
creamery  business   Mr.    Abbott    has1
been  engaged  for the  past six  years j
in raising and marketing fruit in Mission district.    Ills name Is a familiar
one  in the prize  lists of the  various
exhibitions In the lower mainland for
fruit and vegetable growing.
Reeve Marmont, of Coquitlam, pre-1
sidi'd at the executive committee meet- j
ing and Secretary J. XV. Cunningham

subcommittee.
President Marmont said they had
gone into the matter of selection very
exhaustively, They had given tlie
candidates at the interview ostensibly

past experience, and listened to their
views and proposed method of conducting the work of the league. Mr.

one and showed that lie had a thorough grasp of what was required of
him.    More than  that, he has the ex-

Grain Business Experimental.
I would move that the board take
up the question upon tbat line. 1 have
seen tlle report of the grain commissioners- I don't think it is a breach
of confidence upon which their discussion was based. The main contention was that tlle grain business by
the Pacific coast is absolutely experimental, largely nebulous. There anno means of knowing what it is go

case they thought it would be a good
idea of establishing a comparatively

Tomatoes were also forward in
gi odly quantities and dropped in price

('. N. It. is being pushed to the coast,
if not solely, very largely, with a view
of being in a position to handle the
grain business ou the opening of
the Panama canal. The C. P. R. are
practically rebuilding and double-
tracking their line between Sicamous
and Revelstoke and spending millions
ou it, and more millions at Rogers
Pass with the idea of handling their
portion of the grain trade. If these
railroads are spending millions, with
the Idea, very largely, of recouping
themselves for the western grain traffic, it would be safe to assume tbat
there is going to be a large western
grain trade. If so, to justify the expenditure in any way. it cannot possibly be handled at Hnrrard Inlet. The
greet bulk of it must be handled at
some other point where greater facilities are to be had, and no other
place approaches the Kraser river in
the matter of facilities for the grain
trade.
Committee Named.
A discussion,ensued in which it was
fitst suggested that a letter be drafted to the minister at Ottawa, asking
them to do what was absolutely necessary and of some use, establish an
elevator on the Fraser, but gradually
withdrew to the appointment of Mr.
White as chairman of a special permanent elevator committee to handle
ail elevator business and to take such
action as may be necessary. Mr.
White appointed the following on his
committee: D. 8. Curtis, W. it. Gilley,
E.  Goulet,  W    L.  Darling.
The president emphasized the fact
that they bad the undivided support
nf the Fraser river municipalities he-
fore, and be was sure of their co-operation now He suggested that a big
meeting, representing all the public
bodies In the valley should be convened. This will be attended to by
tho committee,

The present tie in the professional

ibis afternoon when the two teams
come together at Athletic park, Van- \

made to the Vancouver line-up, Struth-
ets Uunn making his reappearance
ior this season, taking the place of

expected thut McCaulg would have
been in shape to resume his position
on the Vancouver defence, but his
damaged wrist is not In condition
to warrant him trying Iiis hand with

found at  point.
New Westminster will retain the

the same twelve men on account of a
scarcity of spares.
Jui-l what will happen should any
of the Hoyals get hurt Is bard to conjecture,
Hob Cheyne will officiate for the

At ihe Royal theatre today there are
three "rip roaring" comedies and two
.���pltndid dramas. The special feature
is "Shorty's Strategy," in which
'Shorty" Hamilton shines as hero.
Ranchman Landers, owner of the
Three Bar Ranch, commissions his
sou, Dick, and Shorty to go to the
bank and bring back the money for
paying off. A gambler and his sweet
heart, Mudge. si a Dick enter the bank.
They linger about, plotting to decoy
him. Shorty leaves Dick a few minutes to go to the shoemaker and
Madge contrives to strike up an acquaintance with tlie ranchman's son
which ends iu his inviting her into a
nearby dance ball. There the gambler has his tables. Madge tells Dick
that she has a passion for the game,
but the gambler will not allow women
to play. She persuades him to put
up some money for her. He loses,
and the stakes are raised. Refore he
realizes it, he lias bet the amount of
the pay roll. Meanwhile, Shorty has
followed his friend to the dance hall.
And so the story grows more and
more thrillingly interesting every minute. Of course, Shorty saves his pal
but how does he do it? That's the
question. The Keystone is fine aud

Eugenia Bologninl was the daughter
of a noble Lombard family, and knew
a mother not unlike herself���a great
beauty and the friend of the illustrious
of her times.
Eugenia was still a young girl when
the impulsive Duke de Litta, one of
the first of the Lombard noblemen
and the head of a house second only
to the royalty of his country, paid
court  to and  married ln-r.
With her marriage Eugenia sprang
at once to a leadership among the
aristocracy of Lomba.ily, then still
under Austrian domination.
When in the '.",ns the struggle was
begun for the expulsion of Austria and
the unification of Italy, Eugenia led
the grandes dames of her native state
in a strict boycott against all social
affairs in which the still dominant
Austrians had a part, lt was a courageous thing at a time when the flames
of Italy still burned very low

household- and, it was hinted, one of
the chief objects of the king's somewhat wide affections.

j Litta   sould   scarcely   escape   his  discriminating  eve.
Hut Victor Immanuel  was a rough
old soldier, with too much genius and
capacity to permit  himself very seri- I
ous subjection  to such  young  beauty
as tho duchess had  to offer.
lt was. perhaps, a bit of poetic irony j
that  Humbert,   the  olj   king's  eldest
son,   should   next   fall   victim   to   tlie
allure  of  this  beautiful  and   remark-1
i able woman,    lt was said no woman
[of her time could  vie  with her���not i
* even the marvelous Eugenia de  Mon- \
I tijo,  who  shared  with  the  third  Na-!
I poleon his adventure-won throne.    As
��� a  matter  of   fact,  these  two  women
j were not long to defer their rivalry.
Braving   Eugenia's   Wrath.
I.a Litta, as all Italy learned to call',
'��� her,  had  already  had  much  homage.
I Had not the great Balzac given her a
i share   in   the   dedication   of   his   "A,
i Daughter of Eve?'��    Was she not the ,
' model  for Vincenso Vela's "The  Virgin's Prayer?" Had not the great and
ariistic of her own country paid her
i court without stint or cessation since
| first she  bloomed  across their path?
These tilings were not enough.
i    In  the  stirring days just  before a
1 woman's rashness and a man's bravado
plunged Prance into the most unfortunate of her wars, the Duclies dl Litta
went to Paris, being then in temporay
disgrace   at   the  court  of   Victor   Immanuel.
j     Here   she   met   the    swashbuckling
l.ouis Napoleon, who first played cards
' for an empire and then played ducks
1 and drakes with it.   The monarch had
not  yet  been   taught  some   things  lie
lean.ed by hitter experience h'-ter on.
i   Even as he had espoused the beau-
I tiful and nan-less Spaniard and placed
1 on her brow the imperial diadem, so he
! now believed he might toy with i.a
Litta,    might     shift    his    wandering
thoughts irom 'ils empress to tin. somewhat younger rival of the same name.
ImTiiscncd  by  a  Queen.
Neither La Litta nor .Napoleon calculated  the  possibility    o|    a    Sedan.

Ihe petty bearer of a great name Iii

,Prench   arms   and   tent   him   away   a

With tlie complete victory of the
Germans La Litta wus released and
pi rinitte.l to return to Italy, where her
deep and. as it proved, lifelong-friendship for t'r.e Crown I'rince Humbert
| was renewed witli greater ardor, ll
| waxed with the years.
in 1ST.-, when Victor Emmanuel be-
i trothed the prince to his first cousin,
'Marghprita di Savoy, afterward Queen
Margherita, there was a sc.inda'i be-
[ cause the little blonde princess -the
'flower of Savoy���returned her nuptial

| fiance's devotion to the alluring dUCh-
; ess.
A truce was made and the wedding
! went on, but Margherita was never deceived as to the state of her royal husband's affections.

1     Later, when he reached the throne,
Humbert so far forgot himself as to
appoint the duchess a lady-in-waiting.
iiis consort bitterly resented the fact.
! and   the   Duke   di   Litta.   patient   for
(many years under his beautiful wife's
indiscretions, protested to tiie king.
The husband tried to bring proceed--
j ings for divorce, but was prevented
1 by the exercise of the royal power.
: He could not challenge his monarch,
i Then he bowed to the inevitable, re-
, nounced Italy and his rank and was
: finaly divorced in France alter he had
become a naturalized Krench citizen.
I His petition named Humbert.
Through all this scandal tlie affections of Humbert and the wonderful
La Litta waned not a whit. They were
seen together constantly and made no
effort to conceal from the divided public  the  state of affairs.
The church party made capital of
the intimacy, the loyalists considered
| It a great and beautiful love which
cculd not be detracted from the king's
enforced political marriage of a royal
woman.    So  the   vears  went  on.
Tinn one morning, fourteen years
ago, an assassin slipped out ol a
shadow at Mon/.a, fired from a iitile
crowd and mortally wounded hi sking.
Humbert was carried Into his villa and
His wife, the patient and long-suffering Margherita, summoned.
The king was dying when she arrived. He ;-aid no won!; death was

moments after her arrival this royal
woman did a remarkable thing.

Perhaps the years had softened and
mellowed her. Perhaps in the pres-

\i any rate the same Margherita who
had brought about La Lltta's banishment sent a messenger for the duchess
and bade her come to her dying lover's
Bide.
La I.itta came too late to see Hum-
:,ert In life, but In time to stand alone
with her queen and mourn him. They
had been faithful 30 years and Margherita was woman enough to .see the
wonder of it.
With the death of Humbert the
Duchess di Litta withdrew entirely
from the Ufa she lind lived so long
and fully. She soli! her jewels, those
given her by Prince Charles of Prussia, another of her royal suitors, and

regulation of ships and  men  who go
down to the sea, lias to wrestle with
"mystery ships," scudding before the
wind  with all sails set  but no living
thing    aboard    except  a  "black  cat,
monkey <>i parrot."
The latest is Uie Mattie W. Porter,
a   little  American    motor    schooner,
which was sighted forging along ln the
South Atlantic ocean,    far    off-shore
from   South   Africa.     The   crew   had
disappeared  and   not even  the black
cat,   monkey  or   parrot   was  aboard.
Captain Schmidt, of tlie German-Aus-
traliun steamship Kelchenbach, sailing
out of New York city for Java, made
the discovery and boarded the ship.
Find Ship's Papers.
He found tiie hatches uncovered and
the  wonder was that the vessel  had
nut foundered.    The    American    flag
floated at the masthead or wherever
it usually floats, and the ship's papers,
showing that the schooner was registered from Somer's Point, New Jersey,
and giving the names of the master,
engineer and crew, were discovered intact.    These are now In the hands of j
Assistant  Secretary  of  Commerce  K. j
F. Sweet, whence they came through J
tlie American    consul    at   Capetown,
South Africa.    Tlie  managing owner,
K.   8,   Knglish,   of   Philadelphia,   has
been   located  and  an  effort   is  being
made by the American government to
suve what It can out of the boat for
him.
ur. Hugh M. s-mit.h commissioner of
the bureau of fisheries, recalls the instance when the United States government paid out $15,000 in cold cash
just because the famous federal fisheries boat, the Grampus, took the idea
of acting as a mystery ship.
"The Qrampus was built by the government as an object lesson, at a
time when unusual loss of life aud
property was resulting In the New
Kngland fisiieries because the type of
boat used was too Inclined to sink
like a stone when the waves broke
over it. The (iiampus possessed,
among other features, u well running
the length of the boat and a sort of
perforated bottom along the well,
which allowed the sea water free In-
gross into the well aud also free egress
when a big wave came aboard. It waa
in this that cod, lobsters and other:
sea food were kept alive for propagat-
i.-ig and laboratory purposes. And once
iliis well was known to play a sinister1
trick
"The Grampus was coastiug off Nan-
tucket shoals in 1886 when it ran un
the shoals iu a storm. The captain j
and crew took to the boats and left
tho 'good ship' to. its fate. Straightway the wind changed and the tiram-
pu = , a* if .tejolclng to get rid of its
human freight, bounded free of the
nhouls, aud with all sails set, a thing
o! beauty to the human eye, set off
into tlie open ocean. One hundred
miles lt had sped when auoUier ship
hailed it. (Jetting no response a boat's
crew  boarded lt.
".Much was their wonder to find not
u human being aboard liut the decks
were covered with living codfish, for
Lf,e ram Uid kept them alive. The
boarding crew looked into the hatches
und saw that the water In the boat
came almo-a to the deck, and strange . ,,,... ,
to say  the  boat  seemed  to  be alive | " -"-Trman.
with all sorts of lobsters, codfish and
other   kinds   of   fish   scudding  about
therein.
"Not being familiar with the principle of the well, the old salts thought
the boat was rilling and would soon
s.iik. They hied themselves to the
pumps to save the fine new craft. Desperately they worked the pumps.
while the Grampus was headed for
t��rra firma with all possible speed.
Hour altar hour the men groaned and
sweated and swore at the pumps,
night and day they labored.
Full  as  tlie  Pitcher.
"It  was  with   misgivings   that  they
noticed that the water in the hold did
not seem to grow less notwithstanding
the thousands of gallons they pumped :
out Of the  boat,  but  they  took  some,
encouragement from the fact that the
water did  uot seem to gain and  kept
the same level. The men at the pumps'
fell   from   exhaustion   but     staggered j
back to their work when partially re-1

"Uncle   Sam   and   his   'well'   were |
playing  a  good   practical  joke.     Mrs. j
Partington's      resolute    attempt      to
sweep  lack   the  rising tide  with  her |
broom   was  a   feeble effort  compared
to  the   tars'  grim  determination   to
pump the ocean dry through the per- j
forated   bottom  of  the  Grampus.   But |
as   ls   often   the   case   with   practical,
iolcers,  Uncle Ham had to pay in tho j
end.
"It was with great satisfaction that I
tlie  exhausted   sailors    brought    the

The News is the Morning
Paper of New Westminster
and the Fraser Valley. See
that your business announcements appear in its columns.
Last week I discussed the opportunities that
every retailer possessed for extending his business
outside of the area of the town in which he lives.
The subject is so vast, however, that there are several points I propose to discuss now as pointers for
the better advertising of articles that retailers adopt
as proprietaries.
One thing should be kept in the foreground at all
times in advertising any article is that the use of
long words and superlatives is inadvisable. It is
hardly too much to say that superlatives are always
liable to be wrong. It is very easy for you to say
that your mustard, tea, soap or any other article is
the best, the finest or the purest in the world, but it
is just as easy to say so if it w ere actually the worst..
Mere statement goes for nothing.
There are plenty of prietary advertisers who
use such statements as these, but this fact does not
make the statement good matter to print. It may
be taken for granted that the products would not be
offered if the advertiser did not consider them to be
the best, and the case for purchasing is not advanced
one iota by stating the obvious.
On the other hand truthful and credible reason
for preferring goods does advance the case. 'This
mustard is ground from seed grown in a particular
part of the country where the soil is specially adapted for growing mustard. The seed is carefully examined and sifted to eliminate all alien grain and it
is then ground in a perfectly clean atmosphere with
great precautions against any dust or impurity getting in. The mustard flour, never touched by the
hand, is packed fresh so as K> retain the whole of its
flavor." Here are logical arguments that should go
towards convincing the prospective customers for
mustard.
In advertising tea one might say, "This is blended from a very fine grade of Ceylon Tea of the second year's growth, with sufficient proportion of
Pekoe to give it a distinctive and delightful flavor.
The basis of it is a delicate yet potent leaf, and the
Pekoe which contains the dried flower of the tea
plant gives it a special fragrance that cannot be obtained in tea of any other kind. As a whole, the tea
used in this blend is free from excessive tannin present in old and heavy tea. It is therefore of a digestive character."
Similar arguments can be found for any product
used as a proprietary article and the advertiser
should always bear in mind the fact that in order
to convince people who are using competitive lines he
must put himself in the place of the prospect and put
into his advertisements just such arguments as
would induce him to change from one to another line
of goods. ���"**?���
