Amidst an uproar, a complete outsider

broke down the barricade, surrounded
the bookmakers' booths, chased out
the cashiers and seized the money.
Attempts to restore order were in
vain, the police presenl being inadequate. Tbe rougher element raided
automobiles near the grand stand,
seized petroleum, with which they
sprinkled the booths, and then set
them afire. The firemen on duty were
helpless, as the hose had been cut.

cocaine of roustabouts by steamboat mates. The judge stated that
it had come to his ears that tho
mates carried a supply of the deadly
drug, which they gave to the negroes in liberal doses. When stimulated by the drug the rouster's capacity for work is greatly increased,
but by the time the trip is ended
he is a physical and mental wreck.���

A  Whistler   Retort.
"At Point Av.-;:. in Brittany,"
said a New York painter, '"1 met
Mortimer Menpes, who is chiefly famous for his friendship with Whistler. 'Whistler,' Menpes said, 'was
not a conceited man. Jle was a
joker. As jokes, not as serious
speeches, most of his remarks were
to be taken.' Thus a lady said one
day to Whistler, 'Do you flunk, Mr.
Whistler, that genius is hereditary?'
'I can't tell you, madam,' Whistler
replied. 'Heaven has granted me no
offspring-.' "

Tlio question of h .-. esi ... ipplj
the rjefi( iency in lab Ei 'iii s\ hich
every pari of Canada is suffering at
presi ii;. is receiving an answer in . ar!
from the Salvation Army. This year
they have brought 13,000 people to
Cana i.i. and nexl j ear I he., expect to
double thai figure. As to the kin i of
people they bring, ive have the assurance that both the Governor-General
and Sir Wilfrid Laurier heartily approve of their work, and we have the
following warm woi Is ol praise from
Mr. Whitney, Premier of Ontario:
"Let me give you a little instance
of what occurred las' year���and 1 may
tell you this, that my opportunities of
obtaining knowledge of the great and
magnificent result of the work of the
Salvation Army has been quadrupled
during the past year. Last summer
the Salvation Army gathered together
from all parts of this Province a large
number of instances where the services of a farm or other laborers were
required, and after they had got together a large number of these particulars they went to England, and
they selected���they did it guardedly,
not everybody found on the streets���
they selected a large number of men
and women, they chartered the Vancouver, they filled the Vancouver with
these people. On the way across they
were sorted again���I like to call it
hand-picked���and they were led to i
their different destinations. They
were not dumped on the dock in a ]
strange land, and left there, but they ',
were taken���each one of them was j
taken���to the door of the place in the j
Province of Ontario which had been
allotted to ihem. at a cost of between
fi and ?i per head, and there never
has been an instance of the expenditure of money, public or private, !

this   country   as  that   one  single  in-

Smith says: "We note once more the
absence of any plan of socialist ���- iv-

very terse setting forth of the logical
I i> ction to Socialism. There is nothing to show that, were it In powei- tomorrow, it could establish a system
of government which would be both
workable and consistent with thai
spirit of personal freedom and independence under the law which has
been the distinguishing feature in the
character of our race.

genuine dismay. "And he's so good
Willie thought for a minute that bi ���
Aunt Marjorie was going to cry, and
then he was surprised to hear her say
in a manner singularly unlike her
usual gentleness. "Maybe some pe..
pie think he is good, but I know lii-
true character, and I do not think you
ought to go around alone witb him.' ,
This speech was rendered with all the
dignity that a woman of tin; world. ',
aged nineteen, could muster.
"You   went  with him  alone  to  I /. j

"Yes, uud that's just the reason i'ni
not going again. If a man takes a girl
to a dance and forgets her he will cer
talnly forget a little boy when be takes
him to the circus, and then what woul 1
happen to you?"
Really this was awful. Willie hud
never seen his dear little aunt In such
a stale, but she was very sweet to hi.a
and took him oul driving that after
noon, stopping i'i the village to buy
him candy aud lois of fireworks for thc
Fourth. lie didn't know what to think
about his beloved commodore, but saw
him the next day and promptly repeated the whole conversation. It seemed
io him the simplest way out of the difficulty.
"Did you forgel, commodore?" be Insisted.
"Great Scott, Willie, maybe I did;
she says so; but she wasn't lonesome,"
he said grimly. "Girls are queer creatures. Wellington; you'll find tha't out

about the circus. I'll fix it some way.
You're going to see ii as sure as your
name Is Vlnclugetorix."
So Willie kept his couusel and was
p.''ied much by Lis auntie for tho nexl
two days. On the morning of the
Fourth ic was firing off liis crackers

to avoid any possible conflict witli her
flintier great friend, the commodore
now a stranger forever.
Before lunch was over, however, the
commodore's touring car stopped at the
door and the commodore was standing
on the porch, cap in hand, announcing
that he bad come.
"Yes, I see." returned Marjorie coul
ly. but deliberately avoiding llis gaze.
Max had such a way of looking at one.
"But what for?"
"Why. to take my friend Julius Caesar to the circus."
Willie looked anxiously from one to

.1. Williamson, manager of the Frater river oiiery, was in the city on
Sat irday, and stated that tlie pasl season had been rather a light one at the
oiiery on account of tlie shortage of
fish. The oiiery is a growing indus-
tiy, ami a very useful one from many
standpoints. Where a few years ago
all tiie offal from the tanneries was
either dumped into tlie river or taken
oat into the gulf and dumped, it is
now collected iu properly constructed
scows and every vestige of it is used
up. The flsh nil is in great demand
by tanners, and during tlie pasl year
1,500 barrels of the product hav. been
exported to England to one of ihe
large tanneries there. Oil is also
made from the dog salmon, and last
year o'_u tons of oil were manufactured  from herring refuse.
Tlii' remainder of ihe bones and
flesh, after tlie oil has been extracted,
i.. converted into guano, for which
there is a great and growkfig call on
account of the great fertility it gives
to tiie soil. In addition to enriching
tiie earth I'or the next crop, it builds
it uji���has a continuing effect���where-
ii,5 the chemical fertilizer which is so
much used is said to have an aftereffect of vitiating the soil. For the
guano, the manager stated, there was
a ready marke' in Japan for all the
oiiery could produce. This year they
have shipped 1,500 barrels to Japan,
and where a few years ago tbey bad
a hard problem to dispose of their
guano at $22.50 a ton, tbey now have
no trouble in ._*-t'in_. $50 a ton.
There are three steamboats and a
corresponding number of scows owned
and operated by the oileries, and during the busy pai". of the season an
extra boat is chartered and placed on
the Xorth Arm run. The oileries
buildings are located on a good sized
island not far from Ladner. and tho
buildings are kept as clean as ii is
possible to keep such places. The oil
.ner it has been boiled down and refined is a bright, clear yellow, and is
not offensive to the nasal organs, as
many might suppose. The business is
under the active management of Mr.
Williamson, while O. F. E. Kinnell is
a- the head of the company,

A emi]ile of years ago, when tlifl
king and Queen Alexandra were in
Belfast, (he city fathers were passing before theni, sny- the New Vo.k
Tress. (Ma.' of tlie l"i. a big, red
faced broker, became en.barra.scd,
and as he readied his right hand to
the king he held oul his left to the
quern. Alexandra was nonplused
for the moment, hut her royal
spoil, e gave her a hint with hi..
elbow, and she gently shook the b -
loft paw. 'l'lie situation was t'">
much for Edward, and lie fairly guffawed. The queen", lips parted, as
if she was about to smile, but that
was all.
To a woman who was standing
near the incident revealed tho ferret nf Alexandra's perpetual youth.
The woman t<>!<1 me she was convinced the queen's cheeks were enameled and t.iat she could not smile
without cracking the cast. Think
of tho misery she endured with her
liege lord enjoying himself like a
boy at the cir us!

Canadian Northern at lhe frightful
speed of eight mile- nn Lour, who,
as he informed nn-'. had "just been
up the line u bit to take dinner wiih.

out after a lit'!" conversation thai
Aunt. Ilattie resid- d some idd
miies up away. Think- of I raveling

lea with sister Sue or anybody else!
