A petition was sent the sold commissioner   asking   for  a   closed   working!
season this coming summer, on account of the shortage of the necessi- 6 don"B immediately, after having
ii' _ aiidi.ie uncertainty of there being '
pay gravel sufficiently rich to justify
the Incurring of the heavy expense of |
putting in a working outfit under the
presenl  difficult    transportation con-'
ditlohs.    The sold commissioner has
granted   the request,  and  the    open
season has been set for .Tune 27., 1909.
..Hairs of the club, as shown by tin
financial report, have, been steadily
Improving from year to year, und tiny
now have the satisfaction of being
nol onlj free from debts which have
been incurred in past seasons, but
have a balance on hand. With this
auspicious start, the emulators to thc
great W. G, Grace arc looking for-
ward with enthusiasm to the day when
they will again wield Hie willow and
watch the runs pllirtg up on the score
sheet.
The meeting officially adopted iho
constitution as*drafted at the last annual mooting and which will now
come Into effect. The colors Of tho

feordance with the implied wish

tie people of the city should be
nedy, has also keen straining every
nerve In the same direction is stated
in the telegram.
Tho nature of the work snggested
by Engineer Le Baron in his report
to the citizen's committee will entail
the expenditure of a large sum of
money���the actual cost of promised
undertaking is known to but few men
in the city, the figures not being made
public at lhe time the full- report of
river traffic which will follow the
completion of the work will within a
very few years make of this port one
of tbe largest shipping centres on the
northern Pacific coast. The absolute
safety of the river navigation, coupled
with the exceptional advantage of a
fresh water port with easy anchorage
for several miles, will be an attraction
that shipping men will readily recognize and quickly avail themselves of.
LOCOMOTIVE FIREMAN I.
HURLED TO AWFUL DEATH
Word reached the city last evening
ol the violent and untimely death of
a young locomotive fireman named
.Macdonald near Agassi?.. Although
the details are not very definite, It appears that Macdonald was firing on a
locomotive attached to a work train a
few miles east of Agasslz and after
throwing a few shovels full of coal
made the  acquaiteriance  of tha  big   a blue cap with white trimmings.    **

"     A BRIDGE CURIOSITY.
O.l.l     v.lruoliiK-     In     M.--<e��     null!    Of
soii.i  Uaboffany.
As mahogany is among tbe most cost
\y woods iii the world. It may well be
inferred thai this tn.pie.il material is
nor very extensively employed in the
eons, mei ion of buildings, etc. A bridge
constructed of solid mahogany is cer-!
tainiy tl rarity, n curiosity. There is j
one. cluimed to be tbe only one in thej
world, bulll of that material. This
structure is located In tho department
of Palenque, state of Chiapas, republic 1
If Mexico. This district lies in the ex- i
tnrne sent li western part of Mexico, '
near the boundary line of Guatemala.
This mahogany bridge is constructed i
entirely of that valuable wood except !
tome Iron supports, braces and nails I
itiat are necessary. The bridge spans j
the KhvMiehol, and its total length In-j
cladiag approaches, exceeds 150 reet,
while the width Is fiftaen feet. It Is |
used by both teams and pedestrians,
and, although somewhat rude and ]
primitive In constriirtion, It Is very j
substantial.
None of the timbers of the flooring j
were sawed, for in that region there I
nre no sawmills, but were hewn and |
split
In  that section of old .Mexico there I
ore several very large rubber planta- j
tions,  and mahogany  trees are quite j
���common.  In clearing away the tropical I
forests for setting out tbe young rub
bet trees the mahogany growths are
also cut down and removed.   As this j
wood is quite abundant, some of it was
mod In building the bridge.���American

STOPPED THE OVATION.

once In Vienna.
When Wagner was at the height ol i
his popularity he visited Vienna.   Bar- j
on vou Beust, then chancellor of ths
empire,  was informed that the Frus I
oi/irt party intended to give him nn immense   serenade���a   sereuade    which
would have the air of German protest
against the tendency of the ministry to
make (he union of Hungary and Aus-
ltria. more Intimate. The demonstration
promised to arouse strong feeling.
"Tour excellency is warned," said
ihe chancellor's advisers. "It is impos
��Ible t�� stop this manifestation unless
Wagner goes away,, and he loves ovations too well. Nothing will induce him
/to depart."
"You think so," said Beust, with s
���aniile.
A_n hour later Wagner was invited to
���dine with the chancellor. He was flat-
ifered br the invitation and accepted lt
-Aftor dinner, at which Beust was de-
.'{IgbrfLilly affable and entertaining, the
Cbancollor remarked: "Ilerr Wagner,
-are you Interested in autographs? 1
ifeave some very curious ones to sbo-vi
pou" And he opened a portfolio where
were letters of Palmerston, Bismarck.
Napoleon III., Heine and others.
Suddenly turning to a paper, c'.ated
1.S-.8, he said; "Ah, look at this. It I.
very curious. What would your friend
this highness the king of Bavai/a say 1/
��� this paper, which would be significant
_ts connection with the political sere-
ai3.de which the Germans are going to

Origin of Oollsr Mark.
''*Every American knows the
meaiifeg of the dollar mark, but in
the urgent quest for that which it
represent- few ever take time to
team its origin," said a bank clerk
tho other day.
"After a careful search of several
books," he continued, "I have found
thai it was originally tlie figure 8
��� and was first used to denote dollar,
by Alexander Hamilton. This gentleman, it is well known, lived for
a number of years among Spanish
' �����P0]fle, ..tkI it is from them he derived the use of the figure as a B.gn
! for our dollar.   In a Spanish dollar
IttttEe .ire just eight pieces, and
iftien prefixed by a Spaniard to a
oaViTiber it signifies so many times
eight pieces. The two lines were
afterward drawn through to distinguish it from other figures."���New

It,'it. surprising on the one haud to
bear the Conservatives howl  because'
of any  little loophole  in  the  law or |
regulations with respect to Asiatic immigration which lias permitted them *j*z.
to evade  the spirit of that  law, and  Jfl
on tbe. other hand when the Hon. Mr. ft***,
Oliver'. Bill  was before the  House of   Ss\*\
Commons the Leader of the Opposition
declared   ii   unnecessary.    This    11:11
provides that immigrant.,  must  come
.direct  ou  a  through ticket   from   :in-
place, of their birlli or citizenship or
they will be refused admission to lhe
Dominion and it further provides for
their   deportation   if   they   evade   tll^ ;

The Bill also lays upon the trans-
-po.iution companies the onus of seeing that with respect.to the persons
they  convey  to our shores  this   rule
has been observed, failing which they
will lx' called upon to reconvey them
to the port from whence they came;
and if unable to do so in their own
.vessels, etc., they must bear the cost
of such transportation.    This will in
a large measure prevent these companies attempting to evade our laws,
and on the Atlantic seaboard as well
at at our Pacific ports it should be the
means of keeping   out   undesirables.

And it wasn't long before you hated the sight of that chair, table,

You will never acquire a piece of Lee's furniture one day to grow
weary of it the next. It becomes an intimate friend and endears itself to you more and more as the time rolls by.

PAINTED AS INDIANS;
WOULD NOt COME OFF
Paris, April 9.���An extraordinary
story, guaranteed hy tho Journal,
comes from the Canary Islands. On
Shrove Tuesday twenty young men of
Las Palmas decided to array themselves as Indians, and instructed a
tradesman named Francisco Alonzo to
paint them the true redskin hue.
When the carnival was over, the
people tried to remove lhe paint, but
It would not come off. The chemist
to whom they applied declared that
the paint hnd been mixed with a cor-
roslte and that they would remain
Tnd.aa* all their lives,  .,

THE GOLDEN FLEECE.
���I��n(  liiffhir I*ri/fil  of the SnrrlTltta
Order, of Chivalry.
Of all the orders of mediaeval chlv-
tlrv which have survived the shock ot
tnccessive revolutions on the continent
nf Europe since the great cataclysm of
17811, lhat of the Golden Fleece is perhaps the most distinguished und the
most highly coveted l.y personages of
royal hirth or of illustrious patrician
lineage.
The badge of the order is the figure
cf ii sheep in embossed gold suspend*
ed from a heavy chain of gold.    The
full robes consist of a long mantle of
crimson velvet, cut in the fashion of ��
sacerdotal cope, richly embroidered a* ;
the  borders  with  emblematic device* |
of  stars,   half  moons  and   fleeces   in
gold and lined with white satin, ovw j
a doublet and hose of crimson damask :
The full robes also comprise a "chaperon,"  or  bood,   with  a  long   flowing
streamer of black satin, but this head- i
gear bus  in  modem ti��'ps !'wn  gen  ,'
erally dispensed, with. '
..������ Ol'lfi'liially the robes of the order
which was founded In 1-i'J'.i by riiilip :
the Good, duke of Burgundy, were of
crimson cloth lined with white Iamb's
wool, and this circumstance 1ms some
what strengthened the theory that the j
golden fleece was Instituted by Philip
tlie Good ln grateful recognition of the
Immense treasures which the Duke of
Burgundy hud acquired from the
wool of tlie flocks reared on his Vast
estates in Flanders, Be it ns it may,
the woolen costume was changed in
1473 nt a chapter held at Valeneleni "j

From Pagan  Rltei.
The people of Varna, on the coast of |
the Black sen. In Bulgaria, have a sin- !
gular custom which they observe al |
the least of the Epiphany;, which takes j
place on JttD. ii. The ctergy, both |
Greeks and Bulgarians, accompanied
by an immense crowd, go tc the sea- j
shore, carrying wilh them a wooden j
cross. The cross is thrown by cb* i
clergy into the sen, and thereupon thi?
strongest swimmers jump in after it. \
The best swimmer gets it, of courts, I
ami brings it In trlurftpli to shore.
The Varna people have u still more ;
singular suit water custom on the sams
day.  .Vfter dark at night all the newly
married men lu tbe town are condurfc
ed, with bands of music und singing,
to the chore and made to take three |
successive plunges Into the icy water, j
'They are then conducted home, where
their brides, accompanied by their rela-
tlves and friends, have been awaiting ,
thettj in state. After Ibis there is feast
Ing ami merry making. These singula!
customs are believed to have a Pagan w
origin.

"I declare. 1W_W people can aslc. i
the most footisnest questions I ever
see,   What do you suppose some wo- '
man asked me just now ?"
I replied that I was unable to
guess and requested him .��� enlighten me. He then proceeded K> tell
hi. story, which ran as follows:
"While I was passing through a
coach just now some woman stopped me and a.ked me how far we
were from Weldon. I replied that
we were about fifty-five miles from
Weldon. She then asked, 'This side
or the other side?'" ��� Harper's

"Sam, did you ever study spirit-
unlism?" asked a traveling man who
hadn't a very high reputation among
his creditors.
"Not much." was the reply. "I
never had lime to give it any
thought."
"But you believe that the dead
return, don't vou?"
"Well, to tell the truth, 1 haven't
been bothering myself about tbe
dead returning. I've only thought
about it long enough to come to the
conclusion that there is an awful lot
of the living that don't return."
"How do you mean?"
"Why, if they did, maybe you'd
be returning that ten dollar bill yon
borrowed from me six montbs sgo."

PROSPECTUS.
This company is formed for Hie purpose of supplying the City of Vancouver with absolu
pure milk of the highest quality, free from drugs and deleterious germs.   The need of such a i
so well known that tht.re is no need  to dilate on this question, the plans of the Compan
earnest support of the Medical Society, the Provincial and City Health  Officers, and everj   docti th
City.
An option has been secured at a very favorable price on the well  known Cruickshank Finn al Ma
close to the C. P. R., and on the route of the Chilliwack tram line.   This  property  comprise    6.
which 400 acres are in a high state of cultivation, and the balance is rich pasture.   It is propi  ���    ���
thoroughly modern barns with cement floors throughout, well ventilated and lighted, and a mo
bottling plant, shipping by speoial-refrfgerator ear to Vancouver every day.
The price to be given for the farm is $^,000, or about $117 per acre,  a  very  low  figure ci      lerii
Ihe quality of the land, tho Improvements and the situation.    It would be hard to find
adapted for the   purpose of a large modern dairy,   Thp terms of purchase are $25,000 casii. and thi
ance in fully-paid shares of the Company,
From the sum of $100,000 to be realize^ trom the sale of R000 shares now offer.-,i. then
$75, ) after paying the cash  portion of the price of the farm property,   it is believed thai I ������
will  be sufficient for the erecti m of the necessary buildings and equipment and the purchase ol
cows, especially selected after careful examination.
THE NEED OF A PURE MILK SUPPLY.
The City has no authority at  the present  time to inspect any dairies outside flu? City.   Tlie I
proposes to give it this authority, so far as its own ifcarns and premises are concerned, and will wel   mi
such inspection at all times.   It also proposes to ask the Medical Association to appoint a commlttei ���
spec tion.
The City records of 1907 show 148 deaths of babies under twelve  months' old, and  medical men
stated their opinion that at least 90 per cent., or say 188, of these deaths are directly    traceable   to   mill.,
either drugged or contaminated at time of consumption.   It is needless  to say  that 148  does not   by   anj
means cover the total num! er of deaths of children, as it is t.ie number of those under twel1  Ti.- ol
age only.
Out of thirty samples of milk collected in VancoutW during 1907 and analyzed by the Dominion Gov-
ernment authorities, only  two samples reach 3% per cent., which is the average Canadian perceo'
butter fat), and fourteen of t__em were officially described as either watered.or skimmed, and were   ��� on
.! per cent., which is the Vancouver City" standard.
f.   ! THE  PRESENT  DIFFICULTIES.
The average farmer and milk vendor is perhaps unaware of the need of the most scrupulous cieanl aess
in every detail in the handling and delivery of milk, and lacks the    necessary capital for the erection of
cement floored barns, properly lighted and  ventilated, the equipment of refrigerating and bottling is ��� I i.
erj-, and the employment of pnen technically trained in what Is now recognized  as a business    requiring
Sei61_tin_ care aiid ffibftflafieSetlt, " '**        ���!_*;   >   )
Without a supply Ot natural \ce, of the liieahs of artificial refrigeration, milk cannot be kept during the
period of twenly?bur to forty-eight hours which elapses between milking and delivery, without the aid of
powerful preservatives, such a? fortWaldehyde, etc. This drug prevents milk turning sour, even if exposed
to the Sun, but this and other preservatives are very dangerous. s
f. WHAt THE HYGIENIC  MILK COMPANY WILL DO. .  -.*-
This Company will supply milk only of the highest standard, both as to quality and purity. It does not
proiiose to pasteurize milk, which at .best is a makeshift.
It should be clearly understood that pasteurized milk ls not pure milk; it is only impure milk waic-
has been renovated, and the Impurities to a greater or less extent removed.
The very fact that milk needs pasteurizing ls in itself a suspicious circumstance. This Company never
intends having milk on any of its premises in need of renovation, as it will .keep only healthy cows, which
wil] be under constant veterinary supervision; the milk, when produced, will be pure and absolutely clean,
and will be kept In that condition until delivered to the consumer.
Immediately after milking, the milk will be aerated and cooled to a temperature of 3. degrees, put In seal
ed bottles and delivered at the doors of customers exactly as it left the farm, and at the same ten ��� :i
ture; this will prevent the need of drugs in summer to keep it sweet, and will also prevent the propagation of injurious bacteria in tlie milk, to which is attributable the enormous infantile mortality ]a the
City and district.
MANAGEMENT.
Arrangements have been completed to secure the services of a well known dairy expert as general manager. This gentleman has successfully operated one of the largest creameries in Canada, and has made a
Special study (,f all matters connected with the handling and feeding of cattle.
Paper estimates of profits are sometimes delusive, so the directors^content themselves with pointing "llt
the well known fact that all the dairy farmers in the district have beep for many years doing very WB" *
deed, and the milk distributors have been doing even better, one firm being credited with making ��� '.'"��*
of $100 |M��r day all last summer.
It i.s well known that In fto part of Canada can cow feed be produced cheaper than ia the -Aiwf!r
Fraser Valley, and as similar companies In the United States, which sell their milk at lower ptfeW ,l,a*
are current her'e, pay good dividends, there Is no reason why this Company should not do the same, aa
the use of milking machines and labor saving devices in handling the feed, manure, etc., etc., should (,ffM'
the higher wages of this Coast. ���
IMPORTANT NOTICE.
The Company aim to keep 500 cows, but It wlll be obviously impossible to get this number in a year,
and while every effort will be made to deliver milk by June, before tue hot weather begins, it ls doubtful i
more than 100 cows can ibe obtained by then and the necessary barns and buildings completed.   In sell ng
the milk, preference wil] naturally have to be given to the shareholders of the Company, and it   is
likely there wlll be any surplus for sale to the general public for at least the first year of ��Pera,lon' '^
as there will be probably many people of small means in urgent need of this milk, the shares have
put at a price, and on terms, within the reach of all.

LOVE CHARMS.
	
Somt. of the Queer Superstition. That
Live In Sicily.
The love charms of Sicily are many
and curious.    One,   very  popular and
considered   very   powerful,   is   to   put
i into an eggshell  a  few drops of the
'. blood of the longing liver.   The shell
I Is exposed to the sun lor three nays
I and to tbe dew for three nights.    It is
' then placed on hut ashes until calcined,
when tbe whole is reduced t. a flue
powder ami  administered secretly   In
! a cup of coffee or a glass of wine to
; tbe object of affection.
Another charm  Is  for the  witch to
��� undress at midnight and tie her cl .Ibe*
; up In a bundle  which she places oa
1 her bead.    Then, kneeling iu the ecu
ter of t.or room, she pronounces au im
cantatlon,   at  the  end  of  which  she
Shakes her head.    If tbe bundle falls
In front of ber, It Is a good sign; should
it fall behind her, the charm will uot
avail.
Vet another is worked in the following manner: Pieces of greeu, red aud
white ribbon are purchased In three
different shops, the name of the persons to be charmed being repeated
mentally each time. Tne shopkeeper
must be paid with the left hand, th��
ribbon being received iu the right.
Wben all the pieces are bought tbey
are taken to a witch, who sets out tu
find the person to be charmed. On
finding him or he> the witch mutters
to herself. "With these ribbons I bind
you to such a one." Then she returns
the ribbons to the purchaser, who ties
them beneath bis or ber left knee
and wears them at church.���Maen_H>

The first of November is the official
beginning of winter in Paris. Then, ne
niatteur what the temperature be, Hres
are lit ln the schools and public buildings, and the janitor turns on the heat
i for the sad race of flat dwellers.  Then
I all  the  smaller  shows   which  cannot
i pay  for a   "staud" in  the streets or
1 squares    go    into    winter    quarters.
Where?  I found a city of them out in
the waste lauds by the great gate of
I Montrouge.    In   au   emply   lot   were
J scores of caravans drawn up behind
the wooden palisades, ranged so as to
form   veritable   streets,   named   after
this showman or that.   Dogs, chicken*
rabbits, children, swarmed everywhere.
I Corkscrews  of  smoke  rose  from  the
I chimneys of the wagons.   Gaudy rags
Were drying on lines.  Will you look in
one of the vans? It has two rooms. In
one are the beds.  The other is for eating.   On all skies the walls are lined
with closets aud drawers. A little siove
gi5ws near the door.   Here they are
born, here they live aud die, the enter-

There is, it has been said, no fixed
standard of art criticism. What la
Iajided today is discarded tomorrow,
and even connoisseurs disagree be-
wiideringly; but, glanciug buck over
the ages, it will be found that tbe discord has beeu caused by technical divergence and thnt ln every land aud
among all peoples the truly beautiful
bas beeu generally recognized and correctly esteemed. No one questions today tbe beauty of tbe Greek temple or
the charm of tbe Babylonian pottery.
It does not require trained eyes to recognize the merit of an oriental flower
painting or to find delight ln one ot
Whistler's nocturnes. Tbe fundamentals In eacb instance are the same-
rhythmical line, fair proportions and
harmonious coloring. We have to be
led of ttlmes up tbe ascent of art end
there ls much discussion concerning
the byways, but once on the height all
dissension ends, and we no longer need
a guide.���Leila Mechlin in Century.

His eye was fairly good.   The bullet

Then Hoover put tip hie gun.

BORDEN BLOCKS BILL
AGAINST YELLOW LABOR
Tory Leader Speaks Against
Orientals in B.C., But Acts
For Them at Ottawa.
WINDSOR SALT is made in
Canada. Cofti no more than the
cheap imported salt ��� and is much
more economical because it is pure.
Get WINDSOR.
184 W
Ottawa, _?pril il���When R. L. Borden
visited the Pacific coast he was very
strung in favor of keeping it a white
man's country. When the bill of Hon.
F. Oliver, to protect britisn Columbia
against yellow labor was before the
liouse yesterday, Mr. Borden held
that it was not necessary because existing legislation sufflcied wliile Col.
Sam Hughes, Geo. Taylor and others
blocked the bill and would not let it
go through.
Sir   \V.   Laurier   appealed     nt   the
leader of the opposition to allow it to
pass,   seeing   it   was   thoroughly   discussed, so that the senate could have
(t   passed   before     it   adjourned     fori
Easter.   The premier said British Col-j
unibia was anxious to get the legisla-1
tion   through.    Bul   ihis appeal   was j
disregarded.
lt. G. Macpherson and W, A. Galli-
hvr and others fought hard for the
bill.
Hon. R. Lemieux pointed ont that
tin- Canadian Pacific railway tried to
bring in 100 Japanese, imt Japan
would not give the passports without
the consent of the Canadian government.    This was not given.
Mr. Macpherson made a stro*g plea
for the bill passing.
