The forty-fifth annual exhibition
held in this city under the auspices
of the R. A. & I. Society passed into
history on Saturday night as one of
the finest agricultural exhibitions
that has ever been witnessed in this
province. As an agricultural centre
lt has undoubtedly been proven tha*.
Westminster is still supreme, and.
judging from the growing interest
being taken by the best stockmen
and farmers of the country in the
provincial fair here, it looks as
though it would be n long time before the agricultural centre of British Columbia would be moved from
this city.
The change in policy Inaugurated
this year by the R. A. & I. Society,
by which greater attention should be
paid to running the fair along agri-'
cultural lines, has proved a wise one,
and a much more satisfactory financial statement will be the result this
year than has been the case for some
time past. The change in policy has
resulted in a better exhib.ti;n at a
reduced monetary outlay by the society. Instead of spending five or
six thousand dollars on lacrosse attractions as was done a year ago, tha
horse show was addei as a feature of
the fair this time, at a less expenditure, leaving a balance of between
two and three thousand dollars to the
good. Had the new horse show
building been completed so that a
revenue could have been collected
Trom that source a still better financial sheet would have resulted. The
paid attendance was practically the
same as that of a year ago and it is
thought that wben the receipts from
membership tickets are completed,
they will te equally gratifying.

Perhaps no day of the fair week
was so thoroughly enjoyed as the
closing day. rrom morning untill

Ed. V. Chambers    States   Valley    la
Wonderland for Vegetables and
Fruit���Shipping Facilities.
Ed V. Chambers, of Armstrong,
B. C, manager of the local paper in
that town, was a caller at the News
office yesterday, and from him were
elicited some Interesting facts about
the town and municipality in which
he resides. Mr. Chambers says he
is familiar with the Okanagan Valley from Salmon Arm to Pentictcn.
Knows every foot of the country
and what each district will produce,
and as a result of his knowledge has
chosen Armstrong as the most favored locality In the whole valley. Armstrong is the official centre of the
district municipality of Spallumcheen
and it is the future prospects of
this municipality which excites his
interest and enthusiasm. The municipality is sixteen miles long. Its
greatest width Is about ten or eleven
miles. In all it contains about 90,-
000 acres, the greater part of which
is capable of cultivation. It is devoted largely to general farming, but
is known far and wide as th? home
of the winter apple. "The land of
the big red apple." is a familiar sign
on the business literature of Uptown, and a visit to the valley at
this particular season of the year
would convince th? most sceptical
tourist that the Spallumcheen can
surely produce the goo's. Many-
expert horticulturists visiting the
town during the fair, have paid this
district the tribute of saying that
never In their lives have they seen
a better display of fall and winter
But Armstrong's chief fame at present does not rest on winter apnies,
although the day may come when it
will do so. At present the chief
source of revenue and pride rests in
their well-kept gardens. This municipality has the finest stretth of
bottom land to be found in any other
single locality. It is sixteen miles
lon>; and varies in width from a few
hundreds yards to a mile and a half

T. W.  Ericcson,  Hers from  Tacoma,
Says Work at Golden Ears to
Be Begun.
That the Golden Ears Mining
claims, situated up above Pitt lake,
are to be developed in the near
future is the announcement made by
Mr. T. W. - Ericcson. who, with a
party which Included Count von Har-
denberg, of Berlin; A. P. Rankin, E.
Dunlevy and O. Gerle (a mining engineer), all of Vancouver, visited the
claims on Saturday anl Sunday.
Mr. Ericcson, who resides ln Tacoma, brought his party up tbe
Praser in his sumptuous yacht the
Margaret, one of the best known of
the many pleasure craft in northwestern waters. It is quite certain
that he and Mr. Gerle, whose reports
of the mines and the prospects are
of the most encouraging character,
have influenced the introduction of
foreign capital into the venture. Tho
Count von Hardenberg and the two
Vancouver financiers were all interested to a high degree ln what was
exhibited to tbem at Pitt lake and
the result will be that development
work will be started at once and that
lt will be rarldly proceeded with.
Modern mining machinery will be
shipped up to the claims and nothing will be omitted which can tend to
work them to the best advantage.
The whole party, while in New
Westminster for a few hours on Sunday expressed themselves as highly
satisfied with the outlook for the
future. Mr. Ericcson has been prospecting in this vicinity for some time
past and he is now content to go
ahead with what he has staked.
Last night the party left for Vancouver where they will spend a few
days. Meanwhile tha pood ship Margaret will remain in the Royal City.

In concluding his interview, Mr.
Chambers said that Armstrong was
a most desirable place to live in as
the town was well provided with all
kinds of institutions that go to make
up a thriving community, auch as
first class high and public schools,
churches, opera house, etc. The social life of the community Is quiet
and pleasant, living ls comparatively
cheap, and the stores of Armstrong
are second to none In the Interior.

Watches and Money Are Gane���Local
Police Notified Early Sunday-
Provincial Job.
On Sunday morning, between three
and 4 o'clock, a couple of robbers of
the prowler species gained entrance
to the homes of A. G. Marshall and
Mrs. M. Goodwin ln South Westminster, and successfully made away
with small sums of cash at each
place, besides a couple ot watchea
and other articles.
The strange feature about the robbery at the Marshall house Is that
the movements of the burglars were
not heard by the members of the
family, although the house was gone
over thoroughly from the cellar to
the roof. The robbers were bold
enough to go into the bedrooms and
gather up what loose cash could be
filched from the pockets of tbe men.
who slept soundly through lt all.
After having taken what valuables-
they wanted, the operators leisurely
betook themselves to the pantry,
where they helped themselves to food
and wine.
From the latter place it is surmised
that the prowlers went up the hill to
Mrs. Goodwin's place, where they repeated their performance with practically the same results. In eacb
place a watch and a few dollars cash
were among the missing articles.
Five people live In the' Goodwin
house, a man, two boys and two-
women. One of the women was
awakened by the noise of the robbers
and saw them as they disappeared
Into the darkness.
While no accurate deecriptlcn could
be had of the men it fs believed that
one was of tall and awkward carriage
and the other of medium build.
Where they came from or where they
disappeared to after the robbery is a
mystery, lt is believed that tbey
came towards Westminster, because
the chain formerly attached to one of
the stolen watches was found hang*
ing to the door of Blggar's stor?.
The  city   police  were notified    of
what had occurred as soon as it was
discovered, and a patrolman was immediately sent to Westminster bridge
to meet the burglars should they have
come that way.   They did not, however, appear, and have not been seen
in the vicinity. The provincial polloei

La Joconde in Frisco.
San Francisco, Oct. 8.���"Mona
Lisa,'' Leonardo da Vinci's famous
painting that was stolen from tbe
Paris Louvre some time ago. is now
believed to be in San Francisco. The
local authorities are searching for it
here today.
A  Paris  author,  Guillaume   Appol-
linaire,  had  occasion  to suspect   his
i secretary, Gery Pieret. The secretary has disappeared, but was traced
from San Francisco to Paris Just be-
[ fore  'he theft of the  painting.    Sus-

lights in order to avoid detection by
Turkish torpedo boats, which are
Btill cruising with surprising audacity
about the Italian fleet. The officers
of the battleship described the bombardment of Tripoli as having been
arranged with great care in order to
srare the enemy as much as possible.
The Turkish soldiers gave proof
of extraordinary courage. Frequently
they exposed themselves unnecessarily. It appears from statements
made by prisoners taken that tho
Turks did net at first realize their in-
ferioiity. The government of Constantinople and the local authorities
had instilled in them the conviction
that Italy was an insignificant, country and  weaker than Greece.
When they saw the imposing fleet
assembled off the coast they were assured by their officers that the vessels were not Italian but British warships which had been ordered to Tripoli to prevent its occupancy by the
Italians. Notwithstanding this deception and subsequent disillusion the
Turkish gunners responded bravely
to the attack and made a good flght

Artist  on Tramp.
Vancouver, Oct. 8.���With his
brushes, palette and easel, and only
the baggage that a good Bohemian
would be expected to carry, 8. P.
Judge, the artist, 812 Robson street,
set out yesterday on a tramp around
the world.
Mr. Judge booked passage on the
Empress of Japan and will go from
here to Hongkong. Further plan3
have not yet been aranged. After
doing the Orient in proper style, the
Vancouver artist will make his way
into Europe, will visit Africa, will
try to arrange a visit to Australia
and New Zealand. He hopes, about
eight month hence, to reach London.
Mr. Judge is an officer of the B. C.
S. F. A., a society of artists In this
city. He ls a son of Arthur P. Judge,
a notary publlc,  811  Thurlow  street.
F. L. Beecher, 1860 Robson, will accompany Mr. Judge as far as Hongkong and possibly further.
Friends of Mr. Judge say that the
two young men have a romantic
scheme in mind. They propose to
"rough it" throughout the round-the-
world tour. Mr. Beecher is a man of
independent means; Mr. Judge, however, will probably sell his water
colors and oils as he proceeds on his
way. and thus render meal tickets

Napoleon loved snuff; not only on tbe

would try ln a thousand ways to divert
attention from himself, and among
othu'r devices, aa soou as be saw a
member's eye fixed on him would
hold out his arm und shake his thumb
and forefinger, to signify that he wished for u pinch of snuff. Not less than
four, and even six. snuffboxes disappeared in tbis manner during a single sitting, mid lt was not till be had
left tbe council chamber that he became aware of the larceny. So confirmed was this hublt tbat some of the
councilors, whose snuffboxes were

princes, hit upou the expedient of carrying; cheap papier mac-he or wooden
boxes for tbe emperor to pocket Tbe
snuffboxes, however, always return*

One  Speeie*  Produces a Seund
the Snap of a Whip.
One does not think of butterflies as
making nny sounds, nor of caterpillars
as noisy creatures, yet according to the
late Samuel Hubbard Scudtler In
"Frail Children of the Air." the careful student will find some use for his
ears when observing the habits of
both.   Says tbe author:
It Is a fact that certain butterflies
produce sound during certain movements. Tbe "whip" butterfly wben
surprised makes a noise like the snap
of a lash by opening and abutting its
wings in quick succession. Some hibernating butterflies wben disturbed
make a faint hissing sound by slowly
depressing and raising their wings.
The noise thus produced resembles
that made by blowing slowly through
.closed teeth. Otber sounds resemble
tbe friction of sandpaper.
A large number of caterpillars make
sound bjf striking the bead against tiie
leaf on which they ure resting or by
swinging the bead from side to side,
catching the mandibles In tbe roughness of the lent or on tbe silken
threads spun on it It ls said that a
certain kind of chrysalis when disturbed emits a slight, sharp chirp or click
ing noise.

Presently there was a squawk from
tbe parrot and a little frightened cry

Became Wife of a Moorish Prince tmtS
"Pope" the Most Powerful Woman
In All That Stormy Despotism���
Cheriff de Wazan Was Fascinated
by Emilia Keene's Glorious Gold
The golden hair of a 17-year-old English girl made her the bride ol a def
scendant oi Mohammed, a princess of
Morocco, the most powerful woman in
that fanatical and picturesque country,
and the virtual head of the Mohammedan nation and faith, although tho
English girl, now an old womsn. stilly
adheres to the Christian religion. Thet-
story of Emilie Keene, whom all Mos-T
lems of Morocco hold in deepest r��Ter>
ence, proves that the world oi iact and!
realism may contain things as strange^
as the world of the imagination.
Halt a century ago Emilie Keene'*,
father was governor ot the Horsemen-!
gers' Lane prison at the north end oE
London bridge. The prison was closed
through the influence exerted by th*
Sublication of Charles Dickens' Littla-
Writ and Governor Keene, deprived
of his source oi revenue and financially embarrassed, decided on sending
his daughter to live for a time with a.
close friend, the British consul at Tangier. Emilie Keene was a handsome-
girl of the English blonde t>pe. Her
principal beauty was a wealth of golden hair that reached to her knee*.
Such hair would attract attention anywhere, but among the blue black
beads of the Moroccan Moors it waa
almost a miracle.
So thought the great Cheriff de Wn-
san. Prince of Morocco, as, riding by
one day, he beheld Miss Keene with
her golden tresses spread out in the
sun. He reined up his charger ia
astonishment, an astonishment that
changed to admiration. There and
then he decided that the girl with
these wonderful tresses should be hia
wife, Moslem and Moor though ha
The courtship then begun was such
aa has fallen to the lot of but few
women of the Occident. The Cheriff
de Wazan, Prince of Morocco, waa
head ot the Moroccan church. As
such his position in that Mohammedan country was much like that of the
pope in Rome. He was far more powerful than the Moroccan Sultan. Tba
men oi both the palaces and the bazaars would bow and kiss the hem of
his garment as he rode through tb*
streets. His lineage be could trace-
straight back without a blot or a break
for 1,300 years to the prophet, Mohammed himself.
Such was the suitor of the little
lonely English girl. The Moors are a
race oi much beauty and the cheriff
was tall, handsome and stately. He
was an impetuous lover, dashing into
the consul's compound with a hundred
horsemen at his back. The little English girl had never seen any one hail
so magnificent. He swept away ber
doubu and teats, the bus ol contention and ot Tace.   He won her lot*.
But the wedding did not come tor
full three years. There wt.j obstacles.
The father, called from England, raged
with good old British anger. No>
daughter oi his should became a Des-
demona. British papers took up hia
fight for him. The French joined in,
scenting a British intrigue. Oddly
enough, the strongest allies oi the bluff
old lather were the Moors themselves.
They rose in violent protest. The descendant of the prophet must not marry a Christian woman. Emilie Keener
received threats of death should she
not give up the infatuated prince.
But the wedding followed despite all
opposition. The girl turned from her
lather to her Moorish lover; the Moor-
was confident in his power and willing;,
to brave everything for his love. They
were married on horseback according,
to the Uzzan custom by a British,
chaplain. Then followed a Moslem
ceremony in which the prince wenk
alone into the mosque to fulfill the requirements of his faith. One stipulation only had the white girl made.
Cheriff de Wazan should have no other
wife than her. He must surrender his.
rights under tlie Koran To this the-
Mohammedan agreed and kept his vow-
through the S3 years of his wedded;
life. >,
To the wedding came thousands.
The shieks from the hills whirled by
at the head of their tribesmen. But
they had only come to houor the*
prince of the faith, not his bride. Aa
they rode by they saluted the prince
and ignored the princess. But this-
would not do. The descendant oi Mohammed rose and spoke. This, he gaT>V
was his wife, his princess, the chcriffa.
There would never be another. Aa
such she must be received and honor-
ed. As men and as Moslems they
must pay her all honor or���
Here followed a marvel. The shieks
returned, smiling. They accepted a
Christian princess for a Moslem faith.
The cheriff had said it; the son of
Mohammed had spoken They could
but obey. From that day to this. 43
years, there has never been one wotdi
oi disloyalty. To-day they kias tha- "
hem of her garments in the street*

MONDAY,  OCTOBER   9,  1911.
Under the heading of "The New
Broom and the Newspapers," the
Montreal \%W .makqs some: trenchant comments on the practice of inserting advertlsments of government
contracts in the party papers.
The Ottawa Free Press commenting says:
The Star advices the new government to use printed circulars in notifying the contractors of new works
proposed. Other advertisements, of
at public nature, the Star has published, and states lt will continue to publish, as matters of news.
To back up its views the Montreal
paper quotes Sir Richard Cart-
wright's expression, famous In the
old days of Liberal opposition, about
"poisoning the wells"���polluting the
sources  from   which  the  peopJstrtW-iJ.Jfcrgest
tain their political news.    	
But there is another and a greater
burden (of which the^ar^cjfojeS not
apeak) imposed upon tne people of
this country by the ne^p/jpers or
Bome of them. It is a burden against
which the amounts paid for advertising government contracts Is insignificant. And tbe largest newspapers of
the big cities are the greatest offenders.
The postofflce department carries
newspapers for 1-4 cent per pound. It
charges  on  letter  mall  32  cents   a
There are strict regulations under

The prime necessity is that the publication is a newspaper, not an advertising sheet, and tbat it is sold for
its news value to the subscribers���
that it is in no sense a "free distribution" publication.
How many   of the great dally papers have reduced the price of subscriptions   in   sections   of   the   country to a point where  they  get from
subscribers bhly enough to    pay  tor
practically   the   agent's   commission,

To assist our fruit growers we have
what is known as the "District Fruit
Exhibit," and this was done at the
request of a joint meeting of the
Okanagan Valley people, held in Vernon some years ago. We allow each
district $150 towards collecting anl
sending their exhibit, and we also
give .medals and diplomas.
Some New Oneit.
This year we have several new
districts, who are exhibing for the
first time, namely: PenMcton, the
Arrow Lakes, and Enderby. and they
are all most creditable -exhibits, and
are certainly a means fl��-i.advertising
the great possibilities of these different sections of the nflpn'ince of
British Columbia, and Wwle we do
not wish to be egotistical, we feel
that the Royal Agricultural and Industrial Society have jcy/i^ributert as
much, and probably more, towards
advertising the different sections of
our glorious province, than any other
organization in B. C.
The cattle, In the dairy breeds,
have never been excelled (I feel that
I can truthfully say) west of Winnipeg. The horses are of the very
highest quality. In the same direction we might mention the sheep
and the swine, and these opinions I
have from the judges themselves.
In  Division  E the   exhibit   is   the
and  best  in  the  history  of
.      1.7
our show, and this is an industry
that requires to be fostered and enlarged, and I am glad te< know that
the Provincial Governraatji are doing
their very best in this'direction.

what they should be,, but of course,

Now we come to tbe'/frult. I believe that we would have had from
three to four hundred additional
plates in our fruit exhibit-but for the
fact tbat a number of the varieties j
obtain the cost of the white paper
and ink, let alone the cost of producing the paper in a mechanical anil
editorial way.
So that for all practical purposes
these papers have become "free distribution" papers. They- fill the mail
���cars, they Impose on the whole people the necessity of extra postal service.
What does the Montreal Star thln\
of these big city dailies who ' slaughter" their papers all over the country���selling at one-half or one third

Will it suggest to the new government the advisability of relieving
the rootle cf tti expense 1n tlie pub

this country.
Here is another direction in which

of apples and pears have been cut
out of the plate exhibit and placed
in the commercial exhibit, where
very handsome prizes are given.
Perhaps, for the small amount ot
prizes given ln the plate exhibits, it
would be well if the revising committee take this into consideration
for another year, and again include
these varieties in -thei platn exhibit,
to enable the smaller gsqwetrs to compete. ...

lias come around once more, and our
1!��11 and Forty-fifth Exhibition will,
at. the end of this week, lie numbered
with things of lhe past.
From ail reports that have been
able to gather from thoHo who Bhould
** competent to express an opinion
on the subject, this exhibition I ;
equal, at any rate, to any lliat has
���boon held in the past, not excepting
thc Dominion Exhibition, Indeed,
many visitors have expressed the
opinion that there has never been a
.better exhibit of fruit got together
bcTore. as there Is this year.
Thc District exhibits, of wliich wo
make a special feature, and of wliicii
we have eight this year, namely:
The Arrow Lakes, Enderby, Salmon
Arm, Kamloops, Comox, Mission.
���Langley and Burquitlam, again show
the possibilities or their different
districts. While these district exhibits are a creation of our own, lt is
done for this very purpose, and to
assist those who prepare and send
-those exhibits, we give $200, whether
they win a prize or not, to all dis
:trlets east of the Cascades and on
Vancouver Island, and $160 to those
west of North Bend and through *^ir
own district. .,
Visitors have no- conception of the
time and tlie labor entailed In making "these  exhibits,   a:id   those   who |
owing to exhibitors who had applied
for space, failing at the last moment
to make their exhibits, which is very
discouraging to the management, but
the Manufacturers' Building has been
filled to its utmost capacity, and the
exhibits shown there cannot be surpassed.
The Fishery Building.
The Fishery Building is an educator anil instructor to the people of
British Columhla. as well as to tho
visitors, who have no idea of tho
good work that is being done by the
Department of Marine and Fisheries
in tlie propagation of lish, and we
have erected, with the assistance of
the Hoyal City Mills, the Brunette
Saw Mills, Small & Bucklin and Galbraith & Sons, a permanent building
for the fishery exhibit, and we certainly trust that tlie department will
continue the good work they have established. 'In this connection we
would thank those in charge, the
chief Inspector of the- province, F.
H. Cunningham and Mr. Matheson.

Deserving of Thanks.
As president of the R. A. & I, Society, I wish to personally and puh-
llely thank (as this Is'the only chance
I have of doing so) all those who
lmve in any way contributed to make
tho present exhibition a success.

and the members of his government,

acting   mayor,  and   the   members   of
the City Council, the newspapers of
the province, for, gentlemen, without
thc good will and endorsatlon of the
newspapers   we   could  practically  do
nothing.    I wish especially  to thank
the Vancouver press, as well as our
j local   papers,   the   members    of   the
Board of Control, who have attended
so  many  meetings  during  the  year,
and   the   directors,   who    sometimes
travel a great  distance,  at considerable  expense   to  themselves,   to  be
present at  meetings,  the  citizens of
our sister cities, Vancouver, Victoria,
and Nanaimo, our visitors generally,
the transportation companies, the different bands from Seattle, Vancouver
and Vernon, the Boy Scouts, with Mr.
Day, their scoutmaster, anl also the
ladies  and  gentlemen  who  have so
kindly acted   as our Judges.   We are
at a loss to express our appreciation
to those ladies and   gentlemen   who
have    so   faithfully   and   effectively
performed their onerous duties  (and
you must agree with me, gentlemen
that    they are onerous).    We   trust
that the decisions given may, in all
cases,   prove   to   have    been   justly
As president, I wish to thank every
member and officer of the R. A. & I,

any way helped to make tbis exhibition the success that it undoubtedly
The Horse Show has been, this

had charge of the Horse Show this

worked hard to make it a success,
and I certainly trust that it has been
satistectory to the exhibitors.
In retiring from this honorable position that it bas been my privilege
to occupy for so many years, I wish
to express the hope that my successor may have your confidence for as
long a time   (I  could not express a

Form Saturday.
Indians Proved Their Right to Challenge���If Longer on Coast Would
Be Really Dangerous.
lineup got into tbe spot light favorably at some time ln the game.
Entitled to most credit for the cup-
ho. its were Matheson and Ion. Clark
made a number of good saves and
Griffith held Querrie down. On tbe
home Phelan and Lalonde were the
pick. Newsy did good spectacular
work as he took lots of watching
when he was not on the fence.
The teams play ln Victoria    today
and the fans will  then  see  whether
I there  is  anything  in  the contention
ithat the Tecumsehs would have won
j the silverware had they not been off
color  in  their  flrst  game  here.  The
Minto ls safe for this year,  but    lt
would appease the visitors greatly if
they were to win at Victoria and so
put two games to one over   on   the
world champions.
In the final game between the
eastern challengers and the Minto
Cup holders played at Recreation
Park on Saturday, of the many spectators who thought that the Van-
comer team would put it over the
Tecumsehs to about tbe same tune as
they did at the previous game a
large proportion were, so to say, disappointed. The Tecumsehs came
through with a line exhibition of the
national game, and, showing the
skill and form that had put them at
the top of the tree ln the east, they
went through Con Jones' men to the
tune of three goala to two.
It is true that there were many
who thought that as soon as the Vancouver team realized the ultimate
result was ln their bands and that
they bad got the cup safe they, so to
speak, lay down and rested, but at
the same time the Tecumsehs showed
that they were well within their
rights in issuing the challenge.
The visiting team got away to a
good start and played superior consistent lacrosse to the end. The cup-
holders were not in the form that
won the Minto trophy. The 5-0 lead
they got lri the flrst game of the
series was a fortunate circumstance,
and that they thought the cup safe
was evident In the play of the Con
Jones aggregation. They lacked the
dash that had in the former game
characterized their playing. If the
Minto cilp had depended on the one
-game it would now be all packed up
and safe in Charlie Querrle's strong
box. If with their advantage ln the
second half the Tecumsehs had
shown the Westminster aggression,
Instead of dallying with the ball the
result of the games might bave been
vastly different. Throughout the
Tecumsehs' defence was good and
their scoring division always dangerous. The changes made ln their
positions on the line up lent a greater
dash to their playing. They were
more aggressive than at the flrst
game of the series.
Flrat Quarter.
The game started with Rowntree.
who on most occasions had Matheson
beaten on the draw, engineering a
Tecumseh rush. Tecumseh attacking
Vancouver's net; Griffith to the rescue sent the ball up field, Vancouver's home showing great form, <
the champs for four minutes then
laid siege to the easterners' goal.
Lalonde, Phelan and Adamson had a
number of tries each at the goal, but
nothing was doing. Tecumsehs'
defence sent the ball to the other end.
Querrie on a pass from Murton, who
was playing a good game, bulged the
Vancouver net with the flrst goal of
the game, time 13 minutes. From
the face off Vancouver rushed tho
hall and Lalonde In goo-1 play, dodging Green and Yeaman, tied tbe score
In 1:25. At the end of the quarter
Tecumsehs held the ball.
Second Quarter.
Moth teams loosened up and set a
fast pace, the Tecumsehs being on
the apsresslve. Vancouver blockel a
numher of plays that looked like sure
Konls. Following Tecumsehs rush.
Godfrey obtained possession of tho
ball at centre, and showed a grea*
mind and good feet;* boxed right In.
made a bluff of throwing to Adamson
and threw Into the net, time 10.17.
There was no further scoring or re
cord plavlng to the end of the first
Second Half.
in lhe third quarter the Tecumsehs
showed some speed that surprised the
6000 fans and especially those who
had seen the flrst game of the series.
Not alone the fanB but also the Vancouver defence was surprised and had
to do some acrobatic guessing. McDougall was doing a lot of fielding
and was always right on home before
the hall. He took a pass from McGregor and shot as two of the cup-
holding defence sent him down. The
hall landed ln the net and again the
score was tied. Eight minutes later
arter a series of plays that have
never heen beaten on a lacrosse
field, Murton outwitting his check
sent In one that eluded Clark. In
this quarter It appeared to be good
luck as much as good management on
tho part of the Minto cupholders that
kert the score as low as two for the
Last Quarter.
In the last quarter the fans expected to see the Indians    rush   things.

Con Jones and that straw hat, the
only one at the grounds, with tbe exception of the one worn by his partner, did not seem to be the mascot it
was at first thought to be. The
Tecumsehs were too much for the
straw. Hut then after ail lt is a good
thln��; that the cup stays on th? coast,
as it will make it so much easier far
Westminster to take lt away next
season. It will not be necessary to
go back east to run the chances of

Referee Cheyne. of Westminster, In

game one of unclean tacticr The offenders were handled withe t glovs.
Tecumsehs players spent I -enty-flve
minutes with the penalty timers,
Vancouver 30 minutes.
Saturday evening after tbo lacrosse
game a sumptuous banquet vas served at the Dutch Grill in hot or of the
Tecumsehs by President Ccn Jones,
of the Vancouver all-star aggregation
The rival teams were there and also,
a large number ot the prominent
sporting men of the Terminal City.
That the teams are as strong on good-
fellowship as on lacrosse was the lesson of tbe banquet. A feature of
the affair was the presentation ot a
number of watch fobs to the players
of both teams by local followers of
Soccer Match.
In the senior amateur soccer match
played at Moody square on Saturday
Westminster, in a tight game, beat
the Central Methodists, of Vancouver,
by one goal to nil. The score indicates a.fairly even struggle, but had
not the forwards of the home team
shown a decided lack of skill in shooting, and poor combination, the result
would have been very different as
there were manv occasions when the
visitors' net might have been pierced.
Individual play was not so startling
as to need much comment, but that
of the vldtlng right half was perhaps
the most worthy of mention. Westminster showed up well on the defensive.
The line-ups were as follows:
Westminster ��� Goal. Sampher:
backs, Lyons and Ferguson: half
backs, Speedie, McLaren and Patterson; forwards. Shepherd, Peirte
Cheal, Alsbury and Evans.
Central Methodists���Goaf, W.
Tough; backs, S. Tough and J. Eaton:
half backs. Kitchen. Hughes and
Pegg: forwards. Corkill. Ward, Betr,
Watterson and J. Tough.
Considerable progress Is being
made with the construction of the
Australian fleet unit. The flrst class
armored cruiser Australia, which is
now under construction on the Clyde,
will be launched thia month, and the
second class cruisers of tbe Bristol
class, and-the two submarines, all'of
which are being built in England are
rapidly progressing.
The torpedo boat destroyer which
was Eent out ln sections to Australia
is being put together at Sydney. One
of the second class cruisers now
building ln England will also go out
in sections and be put together at
the government dockyard. Of the
torpedo boat destroyers included in
the unit, three are already in Australia, and the plans are completed
for the remaining three, which will
be constructed in that country.
The unit, which will be completed
next year, will consist of: One flrst
class armored cruiser; ttrree second
class cruisers; six torpedo boat destroyers, and two submarines. All
those completed ln England will be
ready to sail for Australia next year,
and the second class cruiser, which
wlll be sent out In sections, will also
be ready for shipment by that time.

"Pall ont one gray hair and a dozen
will tnke its plnce" is an old saying,
which is. to n grcnt extent, true, if no
steps nre tnken to stop the rnnse. When
gray hairs appear it is a sign thnt Nature needs assi��tnnce. It Is Nature's
call for help. Grny hnir, dull, lifeless
hair, or hair thnt is falling out, is not
necessarily a sign of advancing nge, for
there are thousands of elderly people
with perfect heads of hair without a
single streak of gray.
When gray hairs come, er when the
hslr seems to be lifeless or deed, some
good, reliable hair-restoring treatment
should be leewted to at ence. Specialists say that one of the best preparations to nse Is the old-fashioned "sage
tea" which our grandparents used. The
best preparation of this kind is Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy, a preparation of domestic sage and snlphnr.
scientifically compounded with later dl*'
covered hair tonics and stimulants, the.
whole mixture being carefully balanced
snd tested by experts.
Wyeth's Sage and Snlphnr Is clean and
wholesome and perfectly harmless. It
refreshes dry, parched hslr, removes
dsndmff and gradually restores faded or
gray hair to Its natural color.
This preparation Is offered to Jhe
public at fifty cents a bottle, nnd U
recommended and sold by all druggists.

"When did the churches ever stop
a war?" asked Lord Thomas Newton
the other night of an interviewer at
lhe Hotel Vancouver.
Lord Newton was discussing the
8ituation in Tripoli.
"When did they ever stop a war?"
he asked. "Poof! they may have
stopped prize fights���they have stopped sports in England���but they have
never stopped a war."
"More likely have started them?"
he was asked.
"Yes, maybe. The churches neve-
have stopped a war."
Lord Thomas, who is a former
British M. P., was asked if he agreed
with the opinion of J. Allen Baker,
M. P., who, when stopping at the
hotel some days ago, advanced the
theory that the war between Turkey
and Italy would soon blow over.
"What does Mr. Baker know about
It?" asked his lordship.
"Mr. Baker." returned tbe interviewer, "is at the head of a movement among the churches of tbe
world calling for an international
"He can know little of the situation " said  Lord  Newton.
Then it was thnt Lord Newton paid
his respects to the churches.
Lord Newton seems to hold the
same opinion as Lotd Charles Bares-
ford on the Turko-Itlanian trouble.
"I fear that if the war continues."
he said, "that it will cause a great
upheaval in Europe."
Years spent in tbe diplomatic service has given Lord Newton a clear
Insight into the Halkan situation. He
knows Turkey very well and, like
Lord Beresford, fears that this trouble will bring about an uprising
among tbe Mohammedans. In that
event, Lord Newton bell��ve3 that
Turkey will lose her possessions in
Europe, though she may retain her
Asiatic holdings.       i
One month spent in Canada has
Impressed Lord Newton deeply with
the possibilities of the country.
"I cannot undersland," he said,
"why there are not more Englishmen
coming to this country. I was never
so greatly surprised in my life as I
have been since landing at Montreal."
"Vou are not one of the men who
believe that. Canada is being misrepresented by the immigration agents
in Bfltafh;
"By no means," replied Lord New- j
ton.    "We do not hear balf enough
about   Canada   in   the.   old   country, j
What cood lias been said of the country has not don�� justice to it."
"It ia a sad fact." continue 1 Lord
(Newton, "thai we have so many people i'i England, They should be in-
"dun il fn conic to Canada."
, Lord Newton declared that lie bad
not struck one iiotel on his trip
Hjdeross Canada���nnd lie had stopped
gfrt .every town of any siz�� at all���
lat was not crowded to the doors.
He  declared   that he  never  knew
tbe meaning of the word "bustle"
untll he had visited Calgary. Saskatoon, Edmonton and Vancouver.
Lord Newton, who is a wealthy
baron, has made extensive investments in the west.
Noteg   on   Tripoli.
Tripoli has one physical feature
in common with its eastern neighbor,
Egypt, namely, a long stretch of cultivated land and all the rest desert.
In Egypt this cultivated part Is on
either bank of the Nile, while in
Tripoli it stretches along the Mediterranean coast for more than 1000
miles. One may start from the great
Nile dam and travel a thousand miles
through the Libyan Desert and the
hinterland of Tripoli, and Bee practically nothing but sand, until he
nears the city of the Bame nam?.
Tripoli extends inland about 800
miles. Away from the ccast it is as
much a desert as the Sahara itself���
sandy ground and sparse vegetation,
with a plentiful supply of boulders.
Across the desert there is a dwindling caravan trade in ivory, gold dust
and feathers, with Kana and Wadai
The oasis of Ghadames, a favorite
halting place for caravans these
many centuries, lies 3S0 miles soutli
of the city of Tripoli.
The most Important crop i3 barley,
which is the staple food of the people. Wheat, all of whicli is consume I
in the country,, comes next, and other
foods are dates, olives, orang.'S.
lemons, madder and beans. These
ate exported, as are also cattle, eggs,
wool, skins and hides. The exports
of tlie country are about ^',000.000 a
year in value, and the imports about
an equal amount. The country has
no rivers, and rain seldom falls, but
a heavy duo supports vegetation.
The population of over 1,000,000 la
principally composed of Moors and
Berbers, with a few thousand Arabs
and Italians, and 24,000 Jews. The
governor-general has the title, rank
and authority of a pasha of the Turkish empire, and is appointed by the
Sultan. In his turn he appoints the
beys or subordinate governors of th����
provinces, of which there are four,
but many of the chief officers of
state receive their appointments from
Constantinople. In this respect, Tripoli differs from Egypt which is
nominally in the sultan's domains,
but ls actually ruled by the British.
Tripoli is as much under Turkish control as Palestine or Asia Minor. The
Turkish army in the country consists
of a body of Turkish soldiers (about
17,000) whose business it is to keen
down insurrections. The natives pay
to the Turkish government as tribute one-tenth of all the products of
the soil.
Most Ancient Beacon.
Travellers may still see on the
coast of the English Channel at Dover
the ruins of a Roman lighthouse that
was built at the time of the Roman
Conquest of Britain. Another ancient
lighthouse, built less than a century
after the tower at Dover, is still serv
ing Its original purpose. It was partly rebuilt and some alterations were
made in it, but in the main it is the
same old structure that guided the
Roman galleys as they skirted the
coasts of the Bay of Biscay, making
their way to the Roman port of Brig-
antium. This is the modern harbor
of La Coruna, and the lighthouse is
the most ancient thing about it.
The Romans called it the Tower of
Hercules, and the moderns have perpetuated the name. The exact date
of Its erection is not known, but inscriptions and other evidence show
that it waa built in the time of Trajan between 98 and 117 A. D.
When the Roman empire fell and
Rome lost the mastery of the seas
the light in this tower was extinguished. For many years some of
the old Roman lights lit up the sea
edges of the former empire. Most of
the light towers fell completely into
ruins, but a fortunate chance saved
the Tower of Hercules.
For many centuries it was nothing
but four walls of stone, and every
century added to its dilapidation, but
at last, about 10S4. an Englishman
and a Dutchman, consuls of their
countries at La Coruna, agreeing that
the building was not decayed beyond
repair, had it overhauled and patched
up. The light was again kindled: and
though it waa not kepi alive for many
years the repairs that bad been made
saved the structure from irretrievable ruin.
In  17!i7, more than a century after
Its usefulness had been  revived for a
short  time, the exterior stairway encircling  the  building,   by  whicli  the I
Romans and the two consuls reached '���
the  lighthouse  at   the top had  fallen
completely and the Spaniards decided I
not to rebuild it.    Hut  they  planned
a   thorough   renovation   of  the   tower
and the work, as they completed it, is
the tower of today. !
They  placed the new stairway   in
the  interior  of  the  structure.    They
faced the lower two-thirds with granite, marking where the ancient stairway  had clung to the exterior wall.
They found that the old foundations i
were In perfect order, and these foun- '
dations  stand  today as   the   Roman !
stonemasons left them.      This  work
was completed about  111 yeara ago, '
and every night since  tbe light  has '
guided the mariner along this part of .
the northern coast of Spain. I
The light can now be seen, according to tbe weather conditions at a
distance from sixteen to twenty-two
miles at sea, and it is doubtless a
more effective beacon than that
which glimmered from the old tower
some 1800 years ago.

He Did Not Prevent Edith
I    From Keeping Her Vow.
I   %
* %
To Edith's eastern eyes the ranch
was a most fascinating place. The
wide, rolling stretches of plain, flat
and brows under tbe autumn skies;
the leuu cottouwood*, whose scant
shade was u mere Joke, aud the rauch
bouse Itself, roomy, low and ugly,
were nil beautiful In ber eyes.
If you hud told Edith that this
strange fascination was due to tbe un- (
deniable charms of a certain toll cow-!
boy, who bad recently been made fore-1
man of her brother's ranch, she would j
liave tossed her pretty head at you ,
nnd deuled your Insinuations scornfully.
"What," she had exclaimed when
tier sister-in-law bad slyly remarked
ou the regularity of Edith's, morning
rides under tbe foreman's tutelage���
"what! I bare more than an ordinary
Interest founded ou curiosity, for a
cowboy! Why, Alice, you forget where
I was born und bred."
At this pretty Mrs. Alcott had laughed merrily.
" 'Horn and lired.'" she bad repeated.
"My dear child, when you come west
you must forget that you were born
mid bred. I did so live years ago. Tbe
fact that you are a college girl won't
help you half so much as the fact thut
you are unlearning your eastern method of saddle riding. These westerners
don't give n rap concerning your parents or your grandparents. Tbeir interests are uli In the present, not the
past. As Jimmy says, 'One man Is as
good as another here aud a heap better.' So leave off your condescending
airs with Harry Esterly. Tbey are
quite lost on blm. I assure you."
Edith listened in silence to Mrs. Alcott and watched her as she moved
-quietly about the living room of the
ranch house, which was as cozy and
homelike as the exterior was dreary;
then sbe picked up her riding whip,
pulled the latrb of her sombrero under
her chin aud with a disdainful little
sniff walked out toward the corral,
where Harry Esterly awaited her.
Harry watched her keenly as she
strolled slowly toward him.
"Cud." he said to himself, "she's well
put ufi!"
And she was���erect nnd lithe as a
young Indian, with hnir that shone
bronze in tbe sun, wltb skin that
glowed with health after Ibe morning
tub nnd wltb nn uptllt lo ber beautiful head that would well give a thrill
of pride lo nny mun on whom she bestowed her friendship.
"Is that Josephine?" she called to
Harry as she drew within hailing distance.
"Yes, that's Josephine," answered
Harry, patting the smaller horse.
"Isn't she ii liennly?"
"She Is indeed." snld the girl, smoothing the soft nose of tbe pretty mare.
"Are you sure she Isn't part broncho?
Brother Jim says that lf a horse has
���ever so little n drop of broncho blood
In hlm, ever so far buck, he's bound to
buck at least once In his life. And I
don't want to be tbe one to dlscorer
that one drop!"
Harry shook his head. "Well, of
course." be snld, "It's hard to pick up
a horse around bore that you can
vouch for. But really, Mlss Aleott, I
think Josephine Is as safe as n cradle."
Edith hung her whip on the saddle
pommel nnd, motioning away Hurry's
offered hand, swung herself inlo the
"This morning." be said, "I'm going
to tnke you to my particular pet spot.
H's only balf an hour's ride from here."
Out tliey raced across the dusty
plan, tbe horses taking the barbed
wire fences ns lightly ns birds. Tbey
drew rein on n lonely little hillock, the
only break in tbe level of the plain for
miles around.
"Look," snld Harry. "See how one
side is scooped out. Some Indian
made himself n shelter here some time
from n dust storm. And now stand
here on top for u moment and you
wlll sop why I like (his place."
Kdith looked. The slight eminence
gave n surprising sweep of view-lhe
far ranch house, wilh the distant
grazing herds, tbe blue line of base
thnt marked the mountains and, fur-
��� lipf still, the brown of tbe plain,
incrulng into the blue of the desert.
Toward tho desert Harry looked up-
i I'cbenslrely.
"Mlss Edith." he said. "I believe
thnt we'll lmve n dust storm here In
nu hour or so. Tlie nlr felt like It this
mr ning,   with   this  scorching  wind,
��� md now 1 can see It gotberlug out
thpre on the desert. 1 wonder If yon
would he willing to ride ln to the
much alone while 1 ride but to speak
io Mr. AleottV"
Kdith blushed n little. "Why, yes.
of course I'll go. hut���but I wish you
would let me ride your horse buck.
Mr. Esterly. I'm no afraid Josephine
will buck."
"Why, she's ns safe an a church.
And Billy bere used to buck like a
lack ni libit. Of course he's all right
now, I hough."
"Please!'' pleaded the girl.
Hairy jumped from bis horse and
nelped Edith from the saddle.
"I.-.'l ine change saddles quickly," he
snld. "We've no time to waste." And
In n few minutes Edith wus cantering
swiftly toward the ranch house, while
Harry  rode  out  toward tbe distant
Half an hour after Edltb reached
the house tbe dost storm wm npoa
tbem.   Whirlpools of dust were hori*
upon tbe  house by  a  bowilng  win '
that shook tbe very rafters.
Hour after bour of intense dry bea'
combined with tbe screeching of lb
wind, rasped the nerves almost to lb
breaking polut. Edith strolled reel
lessly from room to room, wutctilnj
tbe dust sift In through the riven
window nnd under the doors. Kiuall;
she approached Mr. Aleott. who tiu<
come In just after Ibe storm broke.     |
"lias   Mr.   Esterly   come   lu?'    sh.'
n-o.eil.     "Would   you   mind   looking
Mr. Alcott sighed patiently and wen
out into llie storm.   In a few mlnutei
he returned, looking a little anxious.
"He's not there," be said.   "He toi. I
me he'd reach  here by the time th ���
storm broke.    It's letting up a llttl*
and I'll send one of tbe men out soot
though nothing could bave bsppeuei
to an old timer like Harry."
Edith said nothing, but ns tbe win*
lessened sbe stole softly from tbe root
and out toward tbe stables. Dusk wa
Just beginning to deepen as she rod
swiftly out toward tbe atopplng plac
of tbe morning.
"If he got i-augbt be mode for lha
little shelter, 1 know." she snld to hei
self.   "But I know tbat that Jonephlu
bos done something, even If be ls
cowboy, and It's all my fault."
She drew rein by Ihe hllloelc. Bad
in Its shadows Bat Harry, pale, bu
rAnly smoking, until he saw tbe situ
tied eyes of tbe girl. Editb gave bit
no tiuie for questions.
"Ob," she moaned. "I knew Joseph
Ine would do something!"
Harry glnneed In an embsrrasset
wny at hls ankle, about which be bai
awkwardly tied a handkerchief.
"All my own carelessness." he snlc
"I stood In the saddle to look for th
herd, and if the blamed little lm|
didn't buck wll bout u word of warn
Ing and throw me! I'll never bear Ib
end of thin at tbo ranch. First bunt
that's thrown me in live years. Tbey'l
find us in a little while. They knov
this place."
But Edith could not see tbe hutao
of tbe situation.
"1 was a selfish, cruel thing." sh
moaned.   "Oh, you poor, poor boy!"
Harry looked st her closely. Then h
leaned forward aud quietly took pos
sesslou of her bund.
"Edith." be said softly-"Edith. *
you care?"
Edltb looked out Into tbe desk. "I
cowboy," sbe thought, "just a plab
cowboy! What would they say?
Tbea with a deep blush she looked inti
bis fsce. "Yes," sbs balf whispered
"I'm afraid I do. You see, I ulwnyi

Ruins of an Ancient Town on tho Bed
of the Adriatic
Near Kovlgo. ou llie peninsula of
Istrl.i. lu llie Adriatic- sen. tbe ruins of
a large town are *aid to exist ut Ibe
bottom of the sea. It had been observed for some years that fishermen's
nets were Kuiuctiuiiis entangled In
what apiieareil tu Ue iniisses of masonry, of which fragments were
brought Dp from Ibe sen bed. says the
['all Mall Oazelte. A diver declared
that he had seen walls und streets below the waier.
The city authorities decided to Investigate. They sent down a diver,
who. at tbe depth of B5I feet, found
himself surrounded on the bottom of
tbe sea by the ruined walls, undoubtedly the work of mull. Conl inning his
exploration*, be iraced tbe line of
walls and wu* able to distinguish how
tbe street* were laid oul Hc did not
see any doors or window openings, for
tbey were hidden by masses of seaweed
and liicrusiuilous. He traced tbe masonry for u distance of 100 feet where
he had to slop. n�� his diving coid did
not permit him to go farther.
Some people think that tbey Identify
this lost town with tbe island mentioned by Pliny the elder under tbe
name of Clssii. nenr latria. This Island
cannot be found now. and It Is thought
the submerged town may bnve been a
settlement on the Islaud that so mysteriously disappeared.
The Reason Why  Foam Always Appears White In Color.
When water or liquid of any color le
violently agitated small bubbles of
air nre mixed np wltb tt. and thus
foam is formed, and Ita whiteness ls
dne to tbe fact that wben light peases
from one medium lo another of a different refractive lodes It is always
reflected, nnd this reflection may be
so often repeated as to render the mixture Impervious to light.
It Is. tbeu. this frequency of tbe reflections of tbs limiting surfaces ef
air and .water that renders foaa
opaque, and as eacb particle re3eqki
light In sli directions so much light hi
reflected tbat (be mixture appears
To s similar eauae is dne tbe white-
ness of transparent bodies wben crash'
ed to powder. Tbe separate partlclee
transmit light freely, but tbe reflections at tbeir surfaces ure *o numerous tbst tbe resulting effe< i is white.
Thus glass wben crushed i�� a white
powder and Is opaque, but wben It le
put under water It once more becomee
transparent, beeaus* the Winer fills
tbe Interstices between tb partlcl
and the reflections are destr yed. bit
and snow are also common examples
of this condition.
How Roots Penetrate Hard Ground.
Tbe extreme tips of a delicate root
are protected by a sheath set with
minute scales, which as it Is worn
away by friction against tbe soil Is as
constantly replaced, so that lt acts
as a wedge and the root thread ta carried down uninjured Another aid to
penetration lies In tbe provision whereby tbe root as It pushes downward In
search of nourishment exercises a
slightly spiral, screwlike motion which
worms Its tip Into the ground Another Important agent Is the acid cell
sap. which exudes on to and dissolves
to some extent tho rock or bard soiL
Tbis may be tested by placing a small
piece of polished marble In a pot in
which n plant Is set and covering It
with earth. After some weeks the
marble will be found to have been corroded by the continuous action of this
Why the Spider Wae There.
When Mark Twain In his early days
was editor of a Missouri paper a superstitious subscriber wrote to blm
saying that be bad found' a spider In
bis paper and asking blm whether
tbat was a sign of good luck or bad.
The humorist wrote bim this answer
and printed lt:
"Old subscriber���Finding a spider In
your paper was neither good luck nor
bad luck for you. Tbo spider wss
merely looking over our paper to see
which merchant Is not advertising, so
that be can go to tbat store, spin his
