Medicinal and Toilet Preparations
You can't judge the quality cf complexion cream, of talcum
powder, of headache wafers, of indigestion tablets, or cf laxatives,
in the drug store. You must either take chances on their quality
���or buy by the NA-DRU-CO Trade Mark.
You   certainly   take  no chances n a
when you buy any toilet article or medicinal preparation which bears the name
NA-DRU-CO and this trade mark.
As soon as you see "NA-DRU-
CO" you can be absolutely certain
that the article is the very best.
The National Drug and Chemical Company cf Canada,
Limited, has spent thousands of dollars in perfecting this line of
over 125 NA-DRU-CO preparations.
The formula; are the best known to medical science.
The purity and strength of the ingredients are assured by
rigid tests.
The compounding is done by expert chemists, who are
thoroughly qualified for a work so vital to your health.
Knowing that everything has been done to make them right,
we guarantee, positively and unreservedly, each and every
NA-DRU-CO preparation. If you find anyone unsatisfactory we
want you to return it to the druggist from whom you bought it
and he will refund your money.
Ask your physician or druggist all about the NA-DRU-CO
line. They are men of standing in your community, worthy of
your confidence, and in position to tell you, for we will furnish to
any member of either profession, on request, a full list of the
ingredients in any NA-DRU-CO preparation.

Poultry raising is found to be very
profitable, and in ten weeks last yW
the government creamery turned out

The reason that Harr colonists were
abl�� to exhihit grain in both Alberta
,^nd Saskatchewan competitions is
TTOat the town was located o.i tlie
fourth meridian and when the iro.-
mces were re-arranged in lib'fi this
was made the boundary line between
the two prowu.'es. The town was
partly in ono and partly .In the other.
This was overt o��e by organizing the
western section as an Alb��rtan village and tbe eastern section as a Saskatchewan town. Tbe two together
have now a population of 1,500. More
colonists are coming out from the Old
Country and theie are practically no
foreigners in tbis district.
Veterans   Do   Well.
There were a large number of army
reterans among the Harr colonists,
and ttey have done well on the land
Their patriotic spirit has also led
tlieui to help in forming a local detachment of the -2nd Saskatchewan

A  feature of the striking proceedings  which  took place in   the Horse
Show     building    at    Vancouver    on
Thursday    night,   was   the   practical
eyeecb of Hon. G. P, Graham, minister of railways, upon the transportation  question.    A  good  deal  of criti- j
Ciiim, some of it quite bitter, lias been I
Jei elled ut  the policy pursued by Sir i
Wilfrid  and  his  government   in   re-1
#ai d    to    transportation,     A    large I
amount of .money has heen spenl   in
thlli direction, it   is  true,  bul   every I
business man knows thai money well j
and   wisely spent is always a good in-!
vestngent.    No one can honestly say
that, expenditures upon railways and l
water communication  by  the presenl
governmenl will nol be a profitable in-
weBtmeut to the citizens of the dominion.
The amounl invested In railways in
Canada amounts to one billion and a
ball dollars, whilst the state has furnished something over four hundred
million dollars to the enterprise. As
jMr. Graham tersely put it, "the value
find purpose of all this expenditure is
to enable the labor of tiiis country to
carry its wares into the markets of
the world." Beyond this, however, te-
maitis the fact that "every cent saved
jn freight charges is something added
to lhe workers' wage," These two important points, which li" in juxtaposition to each other, are worthy the
consideration of every thoughtful Canadian.
But    new    railways also mean    of
course the development of new country and the Increase of the wealth and
power of the state.    The railway pol- j
icy of the Laurier   government   has
been of the greatest advantage to the j
country,  for it   has been  responsible j
ior quite a large measure of the   in-j
creasing prosperity which has attended us during tlie last few years.

Tiie announcement  that a  wire nail
und   fence  factory  is about  to be  established  on  Lulu  Island,  is  perhaps
a small matter In Itself.    Hut it Is of
importance as showing the direction
jn which the Industrial ami commercial inteiests of New West minster are I
moiing.    This industry will be an en-!
tifely new one in the district, but  ive
think  it   is .pretty  evident   thai   there:
is ti good opening for such a business.
The possibilities of New Westmln-1
ster and itsJinniediate vicinity, a com-1
mercial and industrial center, are now j
being more generally recognized. The ]
city is attracting quite a large measure of attention from manufacturers I
and others just now, and many capitalists  are  looking   into  the  situation
with a \iew to locating other factories
liere.   A year or so hence we may expect to see a goodly number of industrial  establishments  added   to  those
already in operation.

Victoria, Aug, 19.���Reports of general compliance throughout the province with the stringent provisions of
the new liquor act are already beginning to Teach the attorney general's
department together with isolated examples of the enforcement of penalties as prescribed against tliose who
have been rash enough to contravene
the regulations becoming operative on
tlie  first of the month.

rests upon the purveyor, the defendant wus unable to substantiate his

ent was tlie celebrated *Dr. Langstaffe,
of London. England, renowned for
having achieved the highest individual ascent on tlie face of the globe by
Climbing one of the giants peaks of
the Himalayas. Rev. G. E. Kinney,
the conqueror of Mount Robson, the
highest known peak in tlte Canadian
Rockies, was another member of the
First    Ascent    of    Mount    Babel.
"The camp had a full complement
of guides, including [Conrad King, the
celebrated Austrian guide.   The C. P.
R. loaned all their guides to the party,
BO thai  members bad every facility of
making   a   safe   climb.     Consolation
Valley is famed for its beauty of scenery.    It is glacier-hung and lies about
thirteen   miles   north   of   Laggan   station, close to the world-famed valley
of the Ten Peaks.   From many of tlie
summits reached  by members of the
.party most magnificent views were to
I be bad."
"The Chief climbs made during the
camp were Mount Bident, 10,500 feet;
Mount Quatra, 10,400 feet; Mount
Temple, 11,626; Mount Fay. 10,200;
Mount Babel, 10,500, and Mount Eiffel, 10,000 feet. The ascent of Mount
Label was the first ever made, no one
having reached the summit before.
This mountain was scaled during the
early stages of the camp."
"A rope of four started to make the!
ascent   of   the   second   of   the   Ten
Peaks, one of the most difficult climbs
of the region, but owing to a blinding
snowstorm, which came on when thei
party had been out about half a day, j
were prevented from making the summit, although getting within two hundred feet from the peak."
"One of tlie most notworthy as-
I cents of the season was that of Mount
Assiniboine by Dr. Langstaffe. The
celebrated mountaineer made tlie summit of this giant before coming to
tlie Alpine camp."
An Advancing Glacier.
"It was generally conceded by members of the club who have climbed In
the Alps, the Tyrols and the Himalayas that for variety of scenery the
Canadian Rockies cannot be surpassed. The bare rock, snow, timber,
water and glaciers all combine to
make scenes of wonderful grandeur.
One of the glaciers of Consolation
Valley Is the Wenkchemna, said to be
the only advancing glacier In the region. All others are said, from observation, to be receding."
Wheeler Appointed Director.
"The camp lasted nearly two weeks,
and at the close the annual elections
were beld. Professor Coleman, of Toronto university, was elected president and A. O. Wheeler, the former
president, who gave up llis position as
head of the topographical surveys
branch of the department of the Interior rather than relinquish his position with tlie Alpine Club, was appointed the first director of the dun.
After the camp wns finished a number
of the members went into a sub camp
ln the Yoho Valley, while a number
Of others went to the Alpine club
House at Banff. The camp will probably be held in the Selklrks next
year, and when the railway accommodation lias been provided il will probably go to Jasper Hark, at the
trance to the Yellow Head Pass.'

you not confusing that with the

10. That was not right for you to
do particularly when you were city
clerk, yet 1 advise the city council not
to make uny charge against you, because my desire was truly expressed
in paragraph ^4S to prevent prosecutions "wliich by publicity tbrough the
courtaswould tend to injure the city almost more than the persons concei lied." The end of paragraph 241 proves
my sincere desire to regard cases like
yours as irregularities committed
whilst some of the parties "were unconscious of and never intended to
participate in the losses accruing to
the city more through the system than
their personal dealing," though it Is
almost impossible to believe that in
some Instances.

realize that there was never any intention nor did I ever make a "gross
attack upon your Integrity" as your
solicitors wrongly a,dvlse in their
paragraph three.

truer regard for the interests of your

WHEN Fred Davis, the Furniture Man at 655 Front Street, took you into his confidence four short months
ago and gave you genuine straight prices on Furniture (40 per cent, less than the other houses) he prophesied
and said: " Now watch the other furniture people and see them cut their prices. " The prophecy has been
fulfilled and they have come down with their little "Clean Sweep' sales.
Mattresses usually sold for $3.50 they are now selling for $2.50. If they can do it now, why didn't they
always do it ? Fred Davis, "The Man Who Saves You Money," has shown them the way, but they will have to
come again and reduce some more to meet his prices on the 10 per cent, basis that he has always sold on.       j
" First Come, First Served ", and while the goods last they will absolutely be cleared
out at these Extraordinary Low Prices
There are only two Mattress and Spring'
factories in Vancouver that supply this district. We handle both their lines. Now
their Bedsprings always sold in the other

but have been driven out by   rattlesnakes.
The Houghten-Mitchell residence
was erected by the two young women
without the aid of any men. In addition, they dug two wells, hired a team
and ploughed and planted ten acres.
They would have remainded on I heir
lands until the opening of the school
year had not tlie rattlesnakes become
such a pest.
The country is always infested with
rattlesnakes to some extent, but this
year, owing to the hot and dry weather, they came out of the mountains
and crawled over the plains. Telling
of a snake excursion, .Miss Mitchell
"All  went well  until about July  10.
Prior  to  that time  we  hud  seen  and
killed a good many small rattlesnakes,
but there were not enough of them to
annoy us.    I think it was in the morning of July   10,   when,  arising  to  our
regular   daily   work.    Miss    Houghton
went out to the well to draw a pail of
water.     She   had   nol   gone    ten    feet
from the house  when   I   heard   her
scream.     Running   to  the   uoor   and
looking out,  I  saw  that   tlie  ground
was covered with a squirming mass of
i snakes.    Grabbing a club that we al-
; ways kept behind the door. 1 went out
i and commenced  killing snakes. Striking right and left 1 soon had a patch
I cleared   to   my  chum,  and   then    we
came back  to  the  house and closed
the door.
"All day long and next day there
was a procession of snakes. They
seemed to moving south, and while
I did not count them, there were thou-1
sands. Some were little fellows,
while others were tive and six feet
long. Tiie odor from them was so
sickening that we nearly fainted at
times. For three days this processiou
kept up, and all tlie time we were
prisoners in our house, not daring to
go out. The fourth day they disappeared, going over into the sandhills
to the south, and we packed up and
came home."
Ottawa, Aug. in.���Coincident with
the settlement of the strike of conductors and brakemen on the Grand
Trunk and the increase in wages to
the men as a result, comes the news
that the road will require the men
in the passenger branch of the service
to pay more attention to tlieir personal appearance aud dress. "Now that
conductors are getting pay equal to
many professional men," said Superintendent Donaldson this morning,
they will he expected to live up to
the position they occupy as to tlieir
conduct, manner of living and personal appearance.
"In the past the company has been
lenient to men with large families,
but now that tlie Increased scale is in
force we will expect an improvement
in conditions. Our men will have to
dress up to their position, present a

Lumbermen Believe Rains Will Start
Timber Down Saskatchewan.
Edmonton, Aug. IU.���That the rains
of the past few days will start the logs
which lie stranded in the creek bottoms up tlie Saskatchewan river en
their long trip down to the local mills
and that tlie shortage of logs which
was feared by the local lumber manufacturers will thus be obviated Is
tho general opinion of the river men.
They believe that the rain has been
general and will affect the stage of
water in the Sasktchewan and the
streams tributary to It in such a manner as to make the movement of the
remainder of this season's cut of logs
A little over a week ago a drive containing approximately GO.000 logs
reached the booms in the river here
and the mills which had been closed
down for a short time owing to the
shortage of logs were opened up again
at full blast. Between three and four
million feet of logs lay stranded in
the shallows at the mouth of Duck
creek, which it was thought wquld not
be available this season. The prospects at that time, however, were that
the mills would he forced to close
down unusually early in the fall us It
appeared likely that material would
not be available until the early
floods of next summer.
A number of river men are at present some distance up stream attempting to secure some of the stranded
logs and It is thought that the rains
will assit them greatly in their work
and that the three and a half million
feet of logs which have been locked
up In Buck Creek will float out into
the Saskatchewan with little difficulty.
The fact that, due to the low stage
of water prevailing during the early
part of the summer, the logs have
been rather slow in arriving at Ihe
I mills has made It impossible for the
lumberman to supply all tbe orders
I for building material which they have
i received and which they hoped to be
able to All when operations commenced this year. As a consequence
several huge orders have been forced
to wait and will not now be attended
to until later on in the season.
