"The Burgomaster"

the Eollow Ing to say:
"The Burgomaster" does nol pretend to have any deep laid plans, or,
as the program confesses, to be free
from anachronism, but it does provide three hours of pretty scenes,
sparkling music and lols of fun combined. The iii"" va;is welcomed by

title role it need only be said that Gus
Weinburg was all that his admirers

White, Who was again .seen in her
original part, "Willie," achieved the
success of the evening- As Doodle
Von Cull, ihe Burgomaster's secretary,
Leo Kendall exhibited a quaint drollery which was irresistible, while Miss
Marion Mack's burlesque of the lady
theosophlst evoked roars of laughter.
The charming voice of Miss Marie
Grandpre was heard to advantage in
the songs which fell to her as

that the atomic weight of silver
should be expressed by the number
107.89 instead of 107.93, tlie number heretofore employed. This apparently insignificant change de
mands a corresponding alteration in
the figures representing the atomic
weights of many other substances,
and by increasing the exactitude of
chemical knowledge it may result
in future discoveries of great im
portance.���Youth's Companion.
The Coopers' Curse,
x^ot a great many years ago Bay-
��nne, N. J., was thronged with
coopers. All oils were exported in
barrels, and thousands of experts
were employed in their manufacture. Then along came the "bulk-
er," which is to the ocean what the
tank ear is to the railroad. It car
to*- oil in bulk and soon put the
���eftopers out of business; hence it be
came locally known as the "coopers'
curse." An enormous saving was
effected by the bulkers. At the
Hook the barrel making business
���ia practically a lost art. Nearly ev-
��ry gallon of oil that goes to European countries goes in bulk, and
that which goes to South Americat
republics and small states is ship
ped in five gallon tin cans.���New

Mr. Kipling's actual words are:  "Oue

piess tirsl class emotions-" His refer-,

������< hich, using first class words we sup-

I .'T.ation, has nol recognized that tlie
newspapers of p country mirror the
conditions of the country. The Canadian people are concerned about the
every day affairs of life, about the
tilings thai come home to them, about
the doings of their neighbors, about
the prospects of this, ttiat or the other
locality. They are also interested in
ihe doings of the'r public men, and
the affairs of some newly opened dis-
I tiict are twenty times of as much importance to them as those of the
Danubian principalities. These things,
which Canadian readers' are foolish
enough to prefer, are all in fire second
(.ass and can only be properly dealt

HAVE YOU
A  SAD CONDITION.
-Mr. Hudyard Kipling says that
Canadian newspapers use "second
class" words. Possibly tais is true,
indeed we rather think it is; but unfortunately the great majority of
Canadians are second cWss people.
They neither belong to the type which
employs the slang of the gutter, nor
'o that which employs verbosity to
conceal absence of thought. They
ire for the most part a lot of plain
fo'k, striving with the help of Providence and a few friendly critics from
tlie .Mother Country to accomplish the
li< roulean task of subduing half a continent. After thej have completed
tills, they may produce a school of
j< ,ii:Kili..ts, who can till two and a half
'���; ''iimns of a newspaper with a lot of
observations, which clothe third (lass
i leas in Jirst class language.
_Ur Kipling seems to be more or
less worried over the supposed attitude of Canadians towards English-
��� -Uiea. lie need not be. An English-
liV.n, tCliaO comes to this country and
Likes things just as he finds them, is
Jv.Bt as welcome as anj* one else. He
must make up his mind to put up with
cur second class way of doing things.
We make no claim to be superior people out here in Canada, but we think
ue know our own business. Now and
; gain some fellow, who left Ills country for his country's good, sets out to
. i.:, b us how we should do things.
' crhaps it is how to cut down a
tree; possibly it may be how to con-
��'uct a newspaper. He usually ends
l). making an ass of himself, although
this is possibly giving him too much
credit, for tlie chances are that Dame
Nature saved him tho trouble of do-
'ng tiven that. We feel very sorry for
*ome of these creatures. They are
characterized by a pig-headed and
; i.mpoiiH assumption of infallibility,
which they imagine serves to disguise
the infinite littleness of their mental
calibre. But the great majority of
Englishmen, we. may tell Mr. Kipling,
are welcome anywhere n Canada. But
: Ui Ih only by tlie way.

Doubtless you have some time bought a piece of furnitura which
was not exactly what you wanted, but which you thought might serve
the purpose.
And it wasn't long before you hated the sight of that chair, table,
Davenport, or whatever it was.
Vou 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.
Perhaps you are unaware how much we manufacture ourselves,

Th*   Way   Henry   Miller   Rendered   a
Well  Studied   Line.
In Toronto, a 1 most my first appearance eu the stage, I was east for the .
Earl   of  Shrewsbury   in   "Amy   Rob- .     SEALED    TENDERS    addressed to |
���art"    The   title  sounded   imposing, j the undersigned, and endorsed '"Tender
aud I felt quite important, although 1 i for heating    Post    Office, Vancouver,
had but a single line to speak. In answer to Queen Elizabeth's command,
"1 charge thee, my Lord of Shrewsbury, arrest that man," I was called
upon to reply, "Whom does your
grace mean?"
My perturbation over that line was
probably more serious than anything
lu my subsequent career. What emphasis to give, what Intonation to use.
What manner to assume, gave me
greater concern than I felt later over
an Interpretation of Hamlet. I repeated the line a thousand times, stressing
first one word Rnd then another, using
this inflection and that, nnd getting
Into It every grade and shade of meaning. With what result? So far as I
could learn afterward, I did not speak
lt al all on the opening night. The
leader of the orchestra was the first
person I broached on the subject.
"How did 1 speak my line-?" I asked
him after the play, longing for the
encouragement none had vouchsafed
to volunteer.
"I didn't hear you say anything ut
all," was his disheartening rejoinder,
And neither did any one else whom I
could discover.���Henry Miller lu Bohe

Some Interesting details have been
given out lately as to the sums voluntary paid to British novelists by
American publishers before the days gt
luternatlional copyright. Any American
firm could reprint at once whatever Issued from the English presses, bill
tome publishers arranged with British
authors for advance sheets of forthcoming works, thus enabling them to
gel the start of "piratical" firms which   authority from the Department
paid the author nothing.   It is interest-
Ing to observe the occasional disparity j  -

On the ether hiii.d, by way of com

bottling plant, shipping by special refrigerator car to Vancouver every day.
The price to be given for the farm is $75,000, or about $117 per acre,  a very  low  figure coi

THE  NEED OF A PURE  MILK SUPPLY. ' ��    ,||_tw
The City has no authority at the present time to Inspect any dairies outside die City. The Company
proposes to give it this authority, bo far as its own barns and premises are concerned, and wil] we] :_���
such inspection at all times. It also proposes to ask the .Medical Association to appoint a committei u| _
spec tion.
The City records of 190" Slluw 14S deaths of babies under twelve months' obi, and medical men have
stated their opinion that nt least 90 per cent., or say 133, of these deaths are directly traceable to milk,
either drugged or contaminated at time of consumption. It is needless to say that 148 does not by any
means cover the total number of deaths of children, as it is tin? number of those under twelve mouths o!
age only. ���.***���'
Out of thirty samples of milk collected in Vancouver during 1907 and analyzed by the Dominion Got-
ernment authorities, only two samples reach 3% per cent., which is the average Canadian percentage ol
butter fat), and fourteen of them were officially described as either watered or skimmed, and were beicw
3 per cent., which is the Vancouver City standard.
THE  PRESENT  DIFFICULTIES.
The average farmer and milk vendor Is perhaps unaware of the need of the most scrupulous cleanliness
in every detail in the handling and delivery of milk, and lacks the necessary capital for the erection o!
cement floored barns, properly lighted and ventilated, the equipment of refrigerating and bottlim; iu..(ti).
ery, and the employment of men technically trained in what Is now recognized as a business requiring
scientific care and management.
Without a supply of natural ice, or the means of artificial refrigeration, milk cannot be kept, during the
period of twenty-four to forty-eight hours which elapsfe between milking and delivery, without the aid ol
powerful preservatives, such as formaldehyde, etc. Tliis drug prevents milk turning sour, even if exiiowd
to the sun, but this and otber preservatives are very dangerous. ,
WHAT THI HYGIENIC MILK COMPANY WILL DO.
This Company Wlll supply milk only of the highest standard, both as to quality and puflty. It does not
propose to pasteurize milk, which at test Is a mak*shl_t. I
It should be clcnrly understood that pasteurized milk !s toot pure mi.h; it is only impure mill- "dues
has been renovated, and the impurities to a greater or less extent removed.
Tbe very fact that milk needs pasteurizing is in itself a suspicious circumstance. This Company new
Intends having milk on any of its premises in need of renovation, as it will keep only healthy cows, which
will be under constant veterinary supervision; the milk, when produted, will be pure and absolutely cleaa,
and will be kept ln that condition until delivered to the consumer.
Immediately after milking, the milk will be aerated and cooled to a temperature of 38 degrees, put In waled bottles and delivered at the doors of customers exactly as it left the farm, and at the same temperature; this wlll prevent the need of drugs in summer to keep it sweet, and will also prevent the prop*!*
tlon of injurious bacteria In tlie milk, to which is attributable the enormous infantile mortality 'n <ie
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 ��
special study of all matters connected with the handling and feeding of cattle.
Paper estimates of profits are some times delusive, so the directors content themselves with pointing W
the well known fact that all tbe dairy farmers in the district have been for many years doing very well   '
deed, and the milk distributors have been doing even belter, one firm being credited with making a pre
of $100 per day al] last summer.
It is well known that In no part of Cnnada can cow feed be produced  cheaper  than  in   tbe   Ij0* r
Fraser Valley, and as similar companies in the United States, which sell their milk at lower prices thai
are current here, pay good dividends, rbere is no reason why this Company should not do the sum'.
the use of milking machines and labor saving devices in handling the feed, manure, etc., etc., should �� B
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 7   <
and while every effort will be made to deliver milk by June, before tne hot weather begins, it Is doUBtnu I
more than 100 cows dan ibe obtained by then and the necosaary barns and buildings completed.   VX *
the milk, preference will naturally have to be given to the shareholders of the Company, ami n
likely there will be any surplus for sale to the general public for at least the first year of operati00' Jj
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.

THE  HERRING   CATCH.
It Is to Northern Europe What th��
Wheat  Crop   li  to  America.
Today tbe burring ls hardly regarded
rs a luxury. Indeed, It is chiefly eaten
by those who cau afford nothing else,
lind yet 8,000,000,000 of these flsh are
needed to supply the annual demand.
How this inexhaustible, limitless yield
rif the ocean has swayed ihe destinies
of nation." is strikingly set forth in an
article by Harold Bolce in Ocean.
Despite tbe unremitting harvest by
predatory man and gull and cannibalistic cod nnd shark, the unconquered
armies of herring Still continue to populate the Atlantic with multiplying
hosts.
The Atlantic has been aptly called
tbe "herring pond." Indelibly associated In tbe past with the economic and
political history of occidental mankind, the herring seems destined to
survive ns one of tbe greatest factors
ln the welfare of western nations. Today what the wheat crop is to America
the herring catch Is to northern En-
rope.
Few persons, even among the masses
that consume this flsh, realize Its
economic Importance. More than 3,000,-
000,000 herrings are captured annually,
according to the latest estimate.
The weight of that annual catch Is
over 7!)0,000 tons.
It would require 2.".000 freight cars,
each with n capacity of thirty tons, to
hnul the herring harvest Inland from
the Atlantic.

Queer Belief! That Were Held  by Um
Ancient Mariner*.
Birds ns inhabitants of the air were
naturally chosen by the ancients as
oracles and augurs of future happenings. The sensitiveness to atmospheric changes shown by many birds aided
In esiabltshing these notions. The real
Indications often furnished by sea
birds of a coming storm or calm were
doubtless magnified by the anxious, su
perstltlous sailor.
The custom of hanging the sea swallow so that the bill may point to the
wind arose from the old time custom
of suspending the bird by the feet, expecting It would renew Its feathers as
if alive.
Divination by the flight of birds was
a favorite method in the olden times.
Sailors watched their flight for indications of prosperous voyages and favoring winds. As they were thought to
fly through the air to henven, they
easily became messengers of the wlll
of the gods.
The albatross Is believed by Jack tar
to sleep on the winds, lt was at one
time thought that the petrel hatched
Its eggs under its wings.
The kingfisher was at one time kept
ln chests to keep away moths.
The flshhawk was esteemed a bring-
er of good luck; It boded good or evil
as Its cry was to the right or left.
There was an old superstition that
gulls were never seen bleeding. Shooting stars were then supposed to be the
half digested food of winter gulls.
A Doctor's Assistant.
A doctor whose large practice has
made an assistant necessary was told
that the man he selected was hardly
competent.
"He's good enough for what I want
him for," said the doctor. "I don't
expect him to prescribe for my patients, but to listen to their gossip. In
many cases the privilege of talking
over his troubles with the doctor constitutes the biggest part of a patient's
cure. I haven't time to listen to all
these complaints myself; hence the
need of an assistant This man is
good looking and sympathetic. Callers
will readily unburden their hearts to
him, then when they are ready for
real medical advice he can pass fhero
on to me."���Columbus Dispatch.

Th* Story of Her Death From the Bitt
of an Asp.
It ts admitted that Cleopatra killed
herself to avoid being exhibited at
Rome in the triumph of Octavlus, who
had made war upon her and Antony because the latter bad divorced his (Octavlus') sister on the queen's account
But did she die from a snake's biter
It ts better to think not. "If ber death
had been caused by any serpent, the
small viper would rather have bees
chosen than tbe large asp, but the
story Is disproved by her having docked herself in the royal ornaments and
being found dead without any marka
or suspicion of poison on her body."
Death from a serpent's bite could not.
have been mistaken, and her vanity
would uot have allowed her to chops*
one which would have disfigured her
In so frightful a manner.
Other poisons were well understood
and easy of access, nnd no boy would
have ventured to carry au asp In a
basket of tigs, some of which be even
offered to the guards as he passed) and
even Plutarch shows that the story of
tho asp wns doubtful. Nor Is the statue
carrier) hi Augustus' triumph, which
luiii <.n asp upon It, any proof of hia
belief in it, since tho snake wus the
emblem of Egyptlnu royalty. Th��
statue (or the crown) of Cleopatra
could not have been without oue, and
this was probabl- the origiu ot the
Thole stonr.

Trapping an Elephant
"Elephants are easily trapped," satd
I a *oo keeper, "very easily trapped and
; very easily tamed. Tbe trapper chooses
a spot popular with elephants and digs
a hole five feet deep and twenty feet
square. He surrounds this bole with a
higb board fence except in one place,
where he bangs a swing gate. Next be
finds a herd of elephants, chooses tbe
inininl he wants, maddens It and
makes It chase him- The mun tears
along on bis nag, tbe elephant thunders close after, nnd just ut tbe gateway tbe than swerves to the right, bul
the elephant, too heavy to swerve,
bungs right on through Into tbe bole,
lie's mad at first, terribly mad. But
they give him no food or drink, they
build around the pit fires of damp
] wood that almost suffocate him wltb
i smoke, and they daze and stupefy hint
with shouts and banging of brass pans.
The elephant Is completely broken r.nd
subdued In three or four days. He
tomes forth and follows the trapper
humbly and timidly, with tears In hla
eyes." \

.Montreal, April 7.���A London special cable says: "if, as most politicians
seem to expect, Lloyd-George becomes
Chancellor of the Exchequer, the
chances of the All-Red proposal should
be greatly strengthened, for Lloyd-
George has been throughout its warmest advoate in the cabinet. It is
understood that lt was chiefly on his
initiative that Sir Wilfrid Laurier
made his proposals to the Imperial
Conference. Lord Stratheona's faith
in the scheme is undaunted. He seen
no reason why existing companies,
such as the Canadian Pacific and Allans, should not combine to earn new
subsidies providing for a 26-knot service on the Atlantic and a new 20-knot
service on the Pacific."
