tastefully draped with bunting, new
cut blossoms filled the vases on the
festal board, alternating with piles of
��� ������ ted rifles, while at the upper end,!
the old trap now discarded in favor,
of ;i modern machine, reminded the
banqueters that it was largely responsible for their existence as a club.
Even more appropriate were the cart- j
ridge cases which held the. ne.at but- !
ton nole for each guest, placed at the j
side of the table. The.e and the
humourous wording of the menu
stamped it as a meeting of sporting
men, and their speeches showed them
to be equally at home at the social |
board as on the range or in the field.
Tne supper itself was one that the
hosts and the hotel management were
justly complimented upon by almost
all the speakers who took the floor
and they were many. The chair of
the evening was occupied by Judge
Bole, who, after the honoring of the
toast of The King, proposed "Our
Guests." He informed the company
that the banquet was due to the fact
that the Gun Club had fallen before
he prowress of the Rifle association
at a tournament and now were paying
the price of failure. The toast was
ably responded to by Lieut. Bodley,
Sergt. Wilson, -Vbbott and Geo- Turn-
bull, who expressed a hope that the
occasion would not be the last when
the two clubs would meet under similar circumstances.
The .New Westminster Gun club
was proposed by Lieut. Bodley and replied to by the honorary president C
J. Major, J. H. Vidal, and aldermen
Shiles and Henley. At this stage a
presentation was made by the honorary president, C. J. Major, of a medal
donated by Lieut. Bodley to the highest score at the traps during the past
season and the highest aggregate. The
medal was pinned on the breast of
the winner, Clarence McLean, by Mr.

province will reduce its debt by $1,-
700.000. In connection with the Upper
Canada grammar school fund, and
the improvement fund, the Dominion
owes the province $1,900,000, and the
province owes the Dominion $1,700,-
000. Until recently the province got
5 per cent, interest on the amount
due it and paid only* per cent and as
there is no longer any advantage to
the province in the matter of interest,
it has been decided to accept the
$1,900,000 offered by the Dominion
and to pay off the $1,700,000 apparent
liability.

Unless some action were taken, the
farmers would have to prevent any
further shooting on their property to

toast Judge Bole spoke feelingly of

owed to Captain Fader, which was

bad selected two such capable managers as Messrs, Brine and McLean-
The toast was drunk heartily in

by the proprietors, who assured the

A proposition to build an unsecter-
ian church at Blue Mountain which
has been under consideration for
some time, has during the past few
days come before the public prominently on account of a systematic collecting campaign conducted by the
ladies of the district, who are anxious
to have the church erected and in use
before the end of the summer months.
For a long time past, the Blue Mountain schoolhouse has been used as a
common meeting house but it has
been felt recently that the building
of a house of worship in which all
denominations would have equal
rights would have been welcomed by
a majority of the residents of the
district. Subscriptions are being solicited among the tradesmen of the
| city, the money being required for
I build'ng purposes only, as the site
i has been donated by a supporter of
I the movement.
LARUE. GOLD RESERVE
REQUIRED IN ENGLAND
London, April 10���Sir Robert Giffeu
addressing the Royal United Service
Institution, gave a new form to the
question of the gold reserve in the
term of a vision of the calamities
that an outbreak of war with a first-
class power would bring upon Great
Britain, such as a breakdown ot the
credit system, ruin of merchants and
bankers, and a run for cash on all
sides in a general panic. Sir Robert
then perceeded to urge the necesity of
a greatly increased gold reserve, as
a war chest, in order to avoid resort
to inconvertible paper. He estimated
the liabilities of the banking system
at ��900,000,000. The gold reserve Is
��50,000,000, ot which ��40,000,000 is
in the Bank of England, plus money
held in Scotland and Ireland against
note issues.
He advocates measures that would
enable the Bank of England in time
of peace to increase the normal reserve, while the government would
increase its payment for services rendered, or. forego part of the sum it
now receives from the bank's privilege of note Issue, the bank undertaking, in return, to keep a larger
reserve, say ��10,000,000 more, for
emergencies. The Bank of England
might then negotiate on similar undertakings with the joint stock In the
private banks.
Sir Kelix Schuster, the banker, endorsed the proposal, but was Inclined
to think that Sir Robert somewhat
underestimates the reserves of the
country.
The ladles of the Maccabees will
hold a meeting on Tuesday next, commencing at two o'clock in the afternoon, at the residence of Mrs. George
Adams, Twelfth street. AH indies interested are invited to attend.

Doukhobor��� May Come to Coast.
Nelson. April 10���Peter Veregin,
leader of the Doukhobors in Canada,
who Is In the city, stated last night
that the climate of the territories was
too cold for his countrymen and that
he proposed to bring all the Douf-
hobors In Canada Into British Columbia, settling them In thc Kootenays,
probably ln the neighborhood of Nelson, if land could be got hereabouts.
If there w.a�� not room for all his people here he would take the balance to

Saturday morning to look over the
situation there. The Doul.hohors number 7,000 persons, comprising 1,200

more particularly so because In the
clear air of Egypt the tints of sunset
are peculiarly distinct.
As the sun there descends nearer
and nearer to the horizon and is 1m-
Bicns sly enlarged and flaming, it suddenly becomes for an instant a brilliantly green color, and immediately a
series of green rays suffuses the sky in
many directions, well nigh to the zenith. The same phenomenon appears nt
sunrise, but to a smaller eKtent. Sometimes. Just as the Inst part of the sun's
disk vanishes, its color changes from
green to blue, and so also after it has
disappeared the sky near the horizon
often is green, while toward the zenith
tt ts blue.
This  was  alluded  to   in  Egyptian
writings.   Day was the emblem of life
and night that of death, and the nocturnal sun, being identified with Osiris,
thus rendered Osiris king of the dead.
The setting sun was green; therefore
Osiris, as tbe nocturnal deity of the
dead, was painted green.   The splendid ,
coffins of the high priests of Ammon j
frequently depict the green sun, and :
4he   funeral   deities  are   all   colored
*reen.
There are innumerable Instances ln
the Egyptian relics of representations
relative to death being colored green. !
The practice undoubtedly arose from
the green tints of sunrise and sunset
The green sun disk is referred to 5,000 !
years ago in Egypt.   This is the earliest  known  human  record  of an  astronomical   phenomenon.���Washington I

THE  BL.J.CK   SEA.
Its
Water. So Badly Poisoned That
Life Is Practically Impossible.
Few persons, probably, other than
those engaged in the pursuit of science, are aware that the Black sea
presents an interest of its own to the
aoologlst and the geologist shared by
no other part of the ocean at the present day.
Throughout the greater part of the
ocean the bottom is the dwelling place
of a number of creatures whose business it ls to consume the bodies of the
members of the surface" fauna which
after death sink to the bottom. In the
Black sea, however, says the Field, owing to special geological events, such
scavengers nre totally wanting over
the greater part of the bottom, so thnt
thc carcasses of the creatures which
fall from above nre left to decompose,
which they speedily do at the comparatively high temperature of the
crater.
By their decomposition two soluble
compounds, carbonate of ammonia and
sulphureted hydrogen, are developed
in enormous quantities, while no free
lime, except such as Is introduced from
the Mediterranean, is left. The volume of sulphureted hydrogen Is so
great as to poison the water from
the greatest depth (1,227 fathoms) to
tvithln about a hundred fathoms of the
surface to such a degree that life, ex-
���'.��_pt for a few bacteria, Is absolutely
impossible.
The circumstance has a double inter-
��������_i-fir8t, that It is absolutely unique
at the present day, nnd, secondly, that
it seems to offer au almost exact parallel to the state of affairs that existed
at tbe inconceivably remote epoch j
when the oldest known sedimentary
tacks were laid down aa mud on the
ancient sea bottom.

Pat Was Surprised.
Two Irishmen got the contract to
clean a well. Pat tied a rope around
Ills middle, and Mike lowered him into
Mas well. When Pat was through
cleaning, Mike began to hoist him up,
but when he was halfway up be called
bo bis companion in the well:
"Heuld on a minnlt, Tat. til) I spit
on me hands," and let go of the rope.
.Naturally Pat descended again a little
too rapidly for comfort. When Mike
realized his blunder, he ran to the well
and called down:
'Pat, Pat, are ye dead?"
Acd his partner replied:

The market yesterday bad resumed
all of that animation that haa made
it one of the features of the city. Hundreds of people thronged the building
or gathered around the two auctioneers who in the midst of their res-
pectlve rings of purchasers robed up
jures on the animaia thai pa sod
under the hammer with all the wit
and repartee lor which they are noted.
The crowd around the stalls had bare-
i: room to move at thf busiest part of
the day, and many will loolc forward
with pleasure to ihe day when the
new pari of tho building will be opened. The beautiful summer weather
brought visitors from far and near
to see the greatest market of the
coast.
The prices as a whole remained the
samo, the only change tfeing in the
wholesale price of eggs, which raised
two cents, the market feeling thp effect of the Easter demand in (his
line- Beef was plentiful and sold
readily, as also did pork and veal, but
mutton and lamb were considerably
short with thc demand better than
ever. Chickens were again in heavy
demand. but there were enough
to meet the demand. Apple:- were
scarce and all were sold early in the
day. A few winter pears were offered
but the sales were very limited.
They were offered at from 75c to $1
per  box.
The following are the prices that
ruled for the day:
ii' ef, h.q.  8 to 9;   Beef, f'.q. 6%  to
7;   Mutton  13  (o 14;   Veal,��� medium.

ily be long and tedious and entail a
demand on their patience, together
with some hardship. Their religious
prejudices making it hard to provide
for their sustenance throws up a bar-
rii r to their ever being received with
that welcome they are led to anticipate, wlille their inadaptability rather
than their color will prevent them
fusing into the life of this section of
the Empire. In cloning a very able
article, calm and deliberate in its
tone, the "News-Advertiser" says: ���
The Dominion Government is certainly entitled to some credit for the
course it has taken. As we have said
on previous occasions, it alone could
.approach the Imperial authorities
witl. any prospect of sutjgess, and the
result has justified its response to
ihe1 appeal from -this Province."
While the work of adjustment is
going on between the Governments, in
fact at all times,,we will be true to
ourselves, and true to the Empire, if
we extend kind and sympathetic
treatment to the unfortunates who
are here, and whose only crime is
that they worthily sought to better
their condition, and to do so under
the flag for which they and their forefathers fought so bravely. Our only
question now is, how shall we profitably employ the energy that has been
turned for a w1ii)e through the channels of the .Asiatic Exclusion League,
now that  the  need  for its existence

Seattle, April 0���The novel sight of
a full-blooded Indian In the pilot
hous.? of a steamship in Alaska will
be seen in the near future if the efforts of Eli Tait, a Metlakahtla brave,
to obtain a license as second-class
pilot are successful. Tait was one of
the brightest scholars in Father Duncan's school in the North, and for .a
time acted as boatswain on the steamship Queen of the Pacific Coast Steamship Company in 1906.
He took the examination for pilot
last year but failed, but Is now preparing to again make the trial before
the marine ' inspectors at Juneau
next month.'1 He has written a letter
to Capt. J- R. Patterson of the Pacific
Coast Steamship Company asking for
information regarding the rules of the
road and the duties of a pilot.

TRUSTEE'S ERROR.
The  School    Trustees,   usually    so
well  informed,  seem   by  their action,
on. Thursday night not to understand
tire holiday situation.    The Teacher's;
Institute is to be held in Vancouver,'
for the first time in  four years, on
April 21, 22, 23, and the,Department
in its cirucualr states that the usual [
holidays have been granted by it for
the Institute.    Added  to  this several
of New Westminster's teachers are on
the program and it is in the interest
of education here that all teachers be
given   the opportunity  to    hear    the
papers,  leccures, etc.,   and  take  part
:::  the debates, because the curriculum  is  under change'  by  the Department,   The cost of attending tha three
previous    Institutes    at    Revelstoke, j
Victoria  and   Nelson   prevented    our
city teachers from availing themselves'
of   the   instruction  derived   at   these
Institutes and it is beyond our com-
.jrehension  what reason  the trustees
can  assign  for their strange procedure.    We  find the  trustees  at Vancouver are allowing the Friday follow, j
ni the three days of session, because '
they  think  it  hardly  worth  while  to
assemble for one day  in  that week, I
with the added reason that the teach- |
'���rs  win  be tired  after    the    n.3ntal j
..train  of three days  close  attention
tn   lectures   and discussions   and   we
hope that our trustee board will not;
run the risk of our being held up as
a  backwoods    town by not granting!
what has already been granted by the j
rural trustee boards. .

evidence of their being disorderly was
given. The woman was defended by

Carney, stated that the woman lived
with her husband, and the latter, a
man of the name of George McLean,
iilso gave evidence, stating that he
was living with the accused, but was
not married to her. There was no
evidence to show that the accused was
without means of support, so the case
w.as dismissed. An action pending
against her companion was withdrawn. The case was for the purpose
of testing the power of the law In the

A CAT'S EYES.
�� __
Vfc* Chlaeae Discovered Their Q_e as !
a  Time   Indlcutor.
The first European to learn of the
Use of a cat as a time indicator war
M. Hue, who in a work on the Chinese
empire tells how be was Initiated into
the mystery.
M. Hue and a party of friends set
out to visit a Chinese Christian mission settlement among tlie peasantry
Tliey met u young Chinaman on the
road, and to test bis intelligence they
asked him if he could tell thCm tht��
time. The native looked up at the sky,
but the clouds hid the sun from view,
and he couldn't read any answer there.
Suddenly he darted away to a farm
aud returned in a few moments with a
cat in his arms. Pushing up its eyelids
with his hand, he told Hue to look at
them, at the same time volunteering
the information that it was not noon
yet. While they were puzzling ove!
thc case the boy went about his business.
When the party reached the village,
they asked the Christian converts if
they could tell the time by a cat's eyes
and how It was don*. Immediately
there was a wild hunt, and all the cats
Obtainable in the neighborhood wer*
brought before them.
The Chinese pointed out that the pu
plls of a cat's eyes were gradually nar
rower up to 12 noon, when they became scarcely perceptible lines drawn
perpendicularly across the eye, and
after thnt dilation recommenced. Hue
examined the eyes of several cats and
verified what the Chinese had told
him.���Chicago Chronicle.

PROSPECTUS.
This company is formed for the purpose cf supplying the City of Vancouver with absolute!
pure milk of the highest quality, free from drugs and deleterious germ8,    The need of such a
so well known that there Is no need to dilate on this question, the plans of the Company   ],.
earnest support of the .Medical Society, Che Provincial and City Health  Officers,  and everj   docl
City.
An option has been secured at a very favorable price <>u the well known Cruickshank Farm at Matsaui
close to the C. P. IL, and on the route of the Chilliwack tram line. This property comprises 640 i 0f
which 400 acres are in a high state of cultivation, and the balance is rich pasture. It is proposed I erect
thoroughly modern barns with cement doors throughout, well ventilated and lighted, and a ,  .:I1,i
bottling plant, shipping by specbil refrigerator car t<i Vancouver every day.
The price to be given for the farm is $75,000, or about $117 per acre,  a  very low flgurt .��� ng
the quality of the land, the Improvements and the BituaWon.    It would be hard to find    a  farm     etter
adapted for the   purpose of a. large modern dairy.    The terms of purchase  are  $25,000 cash, and tl
ance in fully-paid stia'res of the Company.
From the sum of $100,000 to be realized from the sale of 10,000 shares now offered, ther   will remain
$75,000  after paying the cash  portion of the price of lhe farm property.   It is believed that thla amount
will be sufficient for the erectlnu of the necessary buildings and equipment and the purchase of   b<
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 tlie City.   The Company
proposes to give it this authority, so far as its own .tarns and premises are concerned, and will welcome
such inspection at all times.   It also proposes to ask the Medical Association to appoint a committee 11  u
spection.
The City records of 1007 show 14S deaths of babies under twelve months' old, and medical men have
stated their opinion that at least 00 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 dors not by any
means cover the total number of deaths of children, as it is the number of those under twelve months of
age only.
Out of thirty samples of milk collected in Vancouver during 1907 and analyzed by the Dominion Government authorities, only two samples reach .'l1^ 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 below
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 cleanlinesi
in every detail in the handling and delivery of milk, and lacks the    necessary capital for the erection cf,
cement floored barns, properly lighted and ventilated, the equipment of refrigerating and bottling machinery, and the employment of men technically trained in what Ib 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 tie
period of twenty-four to forty-eight hours which elapses between milking and delivery, without the aid of
powerful preservatives, such as formaldehyde, etc. Tbls drug prevents milk turning sour, even if expowd
to the sun, but this and other preservatives are very dangerous.
WHAT THE HYGIENIC MILK COMPANY WILL DO.
This Company will supply milk only of the highest standard, both as to quality and purity. It dc*_ not
propose to pasteurize milk, which at tbest ls a makeshift.
It should be clearly understood that pasteurized milk ls not pure milk; it is only impure milk wk>ch
has been renovated, and the Impurities to a greater or less extent removed.
The very fact that milk needs pasteurizing Is in Itself a suspicious circumstance. This Company never
Intends having milk on any of its premises ln need of renovation, as it will keep only healthy cows, which
will be under constant veterinary supervision; the milk, when produced, will be pure and ab.solute!j clto.
and will be kept in that condition until delivered to the consumer.
Immediately after milking, the milk wlll be aerated apd cooled to a temperature of 38 degrees, put In sealed bottles and delivered at the doors of customers exactly as it left the farm, and at the same tempera
ture; this will prevent the need of drugs In summer to keep It sweet, and will also prevent the propagation of Injurious bacteria In tbe milk, to which is attributable the enormous infantile mortality in the
City and district.
MANAGEMENT.
Arrangements have been completed to secure the services of a well known dairy expert as genoral manager. This gentleman has successfully operated one of the largest creameries in Canada, nnd has made a
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 out
the well known fact that all tbe dairy farmers in the district have been for many years doing very well indeed, and the milk distributors have been doing even better, one firm being credited with making a proM
of $100 per day all last summer.      )
It is well known that In no part of Canada can cow feed be produced cheaper than in the b��WPr
Fraser Valley, and as similar companies In the United States, which sell their milk at lower prions thus
are current here, pay good dividends, tbero is no reason why this Company should not do ihe same, M
the use of milking machines and labor saving devices ln handling the feed, manure, etc., etc., should off"''
the higher wages of this Coast. *
IMPORTANT NOTICE.
The Company aim to keep 500 cows, but It will be obviously impossible to get this number In a yeW-
and while every effort will be made to deliver milk by June, before tue hot weather begins, it Is doubtful I
more than 100 cows nan ibe obtained by then and the necessary barns and buildings completed. In selltoP
the milk, preference will naturally have to be given to the shareholders of tbe Company, and it i�� B0
likely there will be any surplus for sale to the general public for at least the first year of operation, M
as there will be probably many people of small means In urgent need of this milk, the shares hnvt' lu,,,n
put at a price, and on terms, within the reach of all.

Charley Stone was one of many
unfortunates who took one night
Btanr-s in the wild, wild west, with a
repertory of Shakespeare and other
grands of the classics. The first
violin in the orchestra played altogether on the E string until a well
armed cowboy arose and said:
"Pardner, I'm a graduate of Yale.
I've been in this part of the country for nigh on nine years. I love
music." Then, drawing his seven
ehooter, he added, "Fiddle a little
on some other string or I'll make
you look like a coal sifter."
Intense excitement wns caused in
De Give's Opera House in iUlanta
a number of years ago when Jefferson was playing Rip Van Winkle.
Every cfmntv in the state was rep-1
resented in the audience. Emotions
were deeply stirred and but ill gup-
pressed \Chen the profligate Rip was
driven from home. A very distinguished looking old gentleman arose
in the renter of the auditorium and
relieved the situation by crying in
a loud voice: "Don't go, Rip! Don't
go!" Then the lachrymal dams
burst, and everybody wept. Of
course we all know that men are
hired at times to create these effects, but now and then such actions
are spontaneous.

pointing to the wings, yelled with
fearful emphasis: "Thar's the brat

It took several policemen and ushers to restore him to reason and

A Doubtful Compliment.
A clergyman was about to leave
his church one evening when he encountered am old lady examining the
carving on tne font. Finding her
desirous of seeing the beauties of
the church, he volunteered to show
her over, nnd tho flustered old lady,
much gratified at this unexpected
oflter of a personally conducted tour,
shyly accepted it. By and by tbey
came to 11 handsome tablet on the
right of tho pulpit. "This." explained tho good man, "is a memorial tablet erected to tlie memory of
the lute vicax."

An old colored woman down In ,\.la-

and was extremely proud of the distinction. The proprietor of a museum,
on hearing of her, sent one of his
agents to make an Investigation, as Rhe
would lie a valuable acquisition to hla
museum. The agont plied her with
questions regarding her age. He asked
ber:
"Auntie, do yon remember George
Washington?"
"Does I remember George Washington? Laws a-massy, mister, I reckon
I does, for 1 done nussed him when he
was a chile."
"Well, 1 suppose you remember the

"Yes. Indeed, I does, honey. I stood

iou sometimes near or read ot s
lawyer asking a witness n "leading
question," and perhaps you wondei
what that term meuns. It docs not
mean a question that is first in order or in importance, as many persons think it does, but a question
that lends the witness to answer as
thc lawyer wishes., him to answer.
For example, if it should be of im*
portance to prove what kind of hsl
the accused wus wearing the lawysr,
if a leading question wers allowed,
might say, "Did hc hsm on a black
hat?" That would naturally lead
to an uf-inaatire answer, just what
ths lawyer desired.
