Om "i i'i' fin I things ol am mag

was the organization of the Spring
Stallion show and pure hnd stock
sale, which is now In progress at
Queen's Parle. The governmenl wns
asked for a grain to carry on the
work. The request was complied with,
and $iuu was placed at the disposal
of the association, while R, Burns &

Gives  an   Opportunity.
The   priniai-j    object   of   the   show
and  sale is 1o give buyers and sellers
an  opijectiet.uidiy    of getting    together
under   mosl   fiitoruble   circumstances.
The association realized thai In the
country where pun- bred stock raising is in its Infancy ii was almost impossible for Individual breeders to go
to the expense of conducting a personal sale, and the annual sale idea
was conceived as a means of meeting
the difficulty and of pun ing would-be
purchasers in the way of making an
Intelligent selection of breeding siock
from a wide choice. Another advantage arises from the fact thai as far
east as Kamloops, the purchaser can
have his slock delivered at a minimum cost of $3 and $1 per head, ihus
making a saving of in the neighborhood of $10 per head.

A curious story has been going Unrounds aboul a lovely foreigner, one
of whose verbal slips gave King Edward occasion for a hearty laugh. A
very lively person with a delighiful
accent, she made such a favorable
impression upon the king that he
astked her to be bis partner at bridge.

know how to play." Tho king would
take no denial, however, and she became rather embarrassed. "I assure
you, sir," she said, "I could uot think
of playing. I don't know the difference
between a king and a knave." There
was an awkward silonce, and then
she realized what she had said and
was covered with confusion. The
king, of course, laughed It off, and
now tells the story with gusto.

Dick Fremont was in nn uuromantlc

was beM-ing a linger to its lips and
gazing at him from die top of an inkstand on a table by his sicVe, seemed to

exhausting himself lately. He had been
working too hard. At present he bail
pains nil over his body. His tongue
was distinctly discolored, and his pulHia
was weak. His head was throbbing.
and there was scarcely a portion of his
body Which did nut nclie. Loss of time-
meant loss of money to him, for he
wrote for a living If lie did not work
he was perfectly aware that some one
else would get ahead of him. Not that
he had easily given up, but the task
of putting words together had proved
ln his present condition as bard as
carving blocks of stone.
In his extremity he thought of a

but sank back with an expression of
"Don't get Up," she said gently. "You

He had made a heroic effort to forestall any aid from such a source. On

"Pardon me, but are you the gentleman who sent for a doctor? The boy
who called me said you lived on the
