One reason tor this is the present

has prepared for presentation to tha
general conference of the Meihod.s.
Eplecopal church, which opened here
today, a working program to "disprove the charge that the church is
not in sympathy wi.h the poo.-."
The report of the committee whlc'a
has been at work for four years, saya
that labor and social conditions have
become such that the chuich mu3t
take a prominent r?rt in them. After
asserting that "this church had its
beginning among the poor and thc
bulk of its members always have-
been wage earners," the repo t recommends for adoption by the conference
a propaganda ca'ling for:
Abolition of child lato/.
Reduction of working hours to tho
lowest practicable point.
Safeguarding the ccndi.lons of toil
for women.
Eciuitable division of the profits o'
industry. -
Piotection of workers from the risk?
of enforced unemployment.

of creed and living on the memory
of past achievements, but one glorying In their ecclesiastical energy begotten bv the pulsations of ^ potent

edfiv'Rtt the people of this new country on mul tors pei taining to the industrial development of eastern Canada.
Yesterday Norman P. Limbert, formerly or the Toronto Globe, but now
special representative of this monsi*-
excursion, was in the city for the
purpose of arranging for tbe entertainment of the excursionists. On
June 7 the special Iran will make
the trip fiom*Medicine Hrt to Macleod, coining hack to Let^brldwe,
where they will spend the whole day
on   Saturday,  June  8th.
The special will cany twelve cars,
nine, of which will be special exhibit
cars in which the various products cf
Eastern manufacturing indu'stiies
from toothpicks to farm machinery
will he displayed.
Thirtv manufacturers will also accompany the excursion blinking with
them a lecturer, who will make short
addresses at each point visited. The

attempt which has been made in Can-
���ula to educate the people to use
home-made manufacturers, the Idea
is much along tho same line as the

The other day one of the famine
workers found a mother engaged lu
burying her child alive. After rescuing the little one he asked her why
she was doing such a thing as this.
She replied that she could no longaj
nourish It. Her idea seemed to be
that it was better to put the littit
thing out of its misery lather than
let it linger along.
Tiiis seems to he by no means uncommon around Tsingklangpu; it ls
leldom, however, that mitsicna les

During a chat wilh a friend whom he

climax of bis recital, saying. "The cold

Work lor Westminster, the emplra's
port to he. This is the five aim set
.before the Westmlnstei P.ogressivc
association hy Mayor Lee at its first
-meeting. By allowing that the Fras?r
river belcnzs not to Westminster only
lint io Canada and the empire as a
whoie, the Mayor lifted the progressive assoe iation out of the local rut
and placed It at once on a wide pirn?
Where it must be every good man's
plit!,! to wqrk. This Is no narrow
boosting moveinnt for selfish p-oflt
Jbut a campaign for the utilization fo ���
the beneflt of the Britis'i people cf
the world of one of the greatest gifts
wilh which nature has dowered Kins;
George's hroad dominions. A great
Britis'i freshwater Paciflc roit is
needed and .this the progressive men
of Westminster mean to secure h^re
���on the Fraser river where conditions
are the most propitious.
It is worthy of remembrance that
a year and a half ago Sir Edward
Tennant, noted British capitalist, in
a remarkable speech addresesd tD the
Canadian Club in Vancouver expressed hope that before not very long we
would see two Dreadnoughts flat-tiig
not on the wat?rs of Burrard in'et
but on the broad Fraser. Yes, the
Fraser is clearly the port of the future
but the need cf the Progress club is
made strikingly clear by Mayor Lee's
statement tbat in the East although
things are changing, still but few p.o-
ple are aware of the great possibilities existing,, bore. This is not as
It siiould be. This city is built on

mother, who had nursed tliem ln
their infancy, had, perhaps, spent
many a Bleepless night in anxious
attendance upon them when Ihe
"Dread .Messenger" was hovering
near, ready to snatch them away
from her, and who had guided their
young  footsteps in  the  straight  and
growing seed that is known to be
pure an I of a definite variety to send
a Quarl sample to tbe agronomy department of the state college at
Brookings, together with a letter slating how much of this seed he has far
rale and the price wanted. Barring
on.e unfortunate seasonal cond tions,
ihe state college will also have a
quantity of impioied teed of the best
varieties  for distribution.

In early winter a list of seeds and

A client came in yesterday and said: "Mr. Kerr, I've got to
raise some money, and get out of town immediately. You know
my three lots on the corner of Royal Avenue, .Dufferin and Alice
Street" ?
"Yes," I said, "They are worth about $13,000 or $14,000."
"All Right," he replied, "I will take an even $10,000 for them
if you can get me the money within three days."
Now that is such a good proposition that I can arrange a loan
of $7000 on the property, for anybody that wants to buy it. So if
you have $3000 you can have $13,000 worth of property on the best
corners in town, and pay the balance of $7000 almost any way you
want to.
The description of the lots is as follows:
Corner of Dufferin Street, Royal Avenue and Alice Street
three large lots, each 66 feet by 132 feet and having a frontage of
one hundred and ninety-eight feet on Royal Avenue; one hundred
and thirty-two feet on Dufferin Street, and one hundred and ninety-

Industries Do Not Support Moving

Thus far only two of the industrial
once.ns along tha city's waterf ont
have notified the public'ty commissioner of their willingness to assist
financially In the project of taking a
moving picture view of the riverside.
Ttie scheme will, therefore, have to
be abandoned unless others come int:
line immediately.
The Dominion Match company has
arranged to take 500 feet of film illus
tracing Its plant and this will be
(laced at the disposal of Mr. Stuart
Wade when tlie views of Westminster
and the May Da.- are sent east. Tht
headquarters of the company wi I thus
be shown as being in this city.
The plan so far Is that the auto
containing the picture apparatus shall
go down Columbia street while the
fire chief ani his entire comman I
will come up the street, thuj allowing the picture operator to get a
good view of the whole as he passes
down the stieet. This method has had

"Speaking of big hands reminds mr-
of the remarkable play of Hank Wallace, a mining prospector wlio resided
at Libby, Mont., when he was not
pu'siting the elusive gold-bearing
rock to its lair. ��� Hank's ;vlnclp:il
diversion was poker. When in town
rertlng from an expedition Into the
mountains he was usually found holding five cards In ft ont of him and
riffling tall s'acks of chips.
"Hank's temper was about ns fiery
us a setting hen with her feet tied".
Many persons at Libby contended thnt
Hank was even tempered���that he
wns mad all the time. However.
I found him genial enough, but I
would look upon such imprulent acts
as pu'ling his whiskers ln the same
caiesory ns picking uo a live wire.
Falls In With Gamblers.
"When Hank dropped Into Libby,
after an absence of six months, be fell
in With two gamblers, who looked upon him a3 prey. Hank readily as-
sented to a proposal to rlay poker
and within an hour after his arrival
ho wai enjoying himself.
"His two chance acquaintances
were playing what is technically
known as 'mitt poker,' that is to say,
they dealt their opponent miraculous
Ivn's, but took better hand3 them-

the game at opportune moments.
"Within  a short time  Hank  saw a
flush, u rull hand and a set of fours
beaten by better hands and liis wliis-

when tbe surface' Is dry beyond a doubt

recipe conies directly from the Land o'
Cakes, and 1 am sure you would like to
bave lt. so I nm sending you the formula as It was given to uie aud hope
that you will enjoy the bread as much
as 1 do:
Scotch Shortbread.
Four ounces of butter, flve onuees of
Bour. iwo ounces of ground rice, two
ounces ot powdered sugar and n pinch
of salt.    J 'tit all the ingredients ou a
baking board In separate heaps, knead
the butter and sugar together until all
the sugar ls used, tben knead iu the
gmuud rice next, tbeu the flour slowly.
After all tbe flour nas been kneaded in
nud tbe dough is quite smooth make it
I Into one or two rcunds, nslug the roll-
j lng pin n little.    Make the edges high
and pinch tbem.   l'rlck all over wttb a
fork through and through and bake on
a floured baking tin In a moderate oven
for twenty minutes or longer, according  to  thickness.    A   piece of  paper
ahould be placed under tbe shortbread
when It ls cooked In a gas oven.   Cool
the   shortbread for a few minutes ou
llie'tin before lifting it.   For afternoon
tea shortbread roll out tbe dough a little ihiuner and cut with a fancv cut
lef-'   '
Vou say. dear, that fancy rakes for
afternnou tea can be bought so cheap
I.v that It is hardly worth while to
bother making tbem, but tbe baker
does not exist tbls side of bonny Scotland who can tnrn out anything as
toothsome as this shortbread. Very
delectable little cakes, though, are
'made witb plain white cake made by
eny preferred reeelpe and baked In
shallow pans and cut while warm Into
squares, oblongs, triangles, etc. These
shapes are dipped either In chocolate
nr maple fondant and are then Heavily
sprinkled with chopped outs. ���
What arc tbe salient features of
spring millinery, you asked .me. Klsa':
Well, dear, you can put anything In
tbe way of a hai on your pretty little
bead and be modish If it Is small in
size hnd flexible In composition and
bas taffeta silk somewhere In Its cosmos. Yes, taffeta's going to be tha
fashionable slogan this.season both foi
costumiis and headgear, but It Is not
the taffeta of otber days, tbat unyielding and stiff stuff that could never be
Induced to take graceful; lines anel
rurres. The characteristic of the new
taffeta is that of a soft, pliable fabric
that is a joy to make into bows nnd
bat crowns.
Apropos of flexibility, at tbe matinee
yesterday a young girl astonished her
mother by disposing of ber outdoor
belongings In a most unusual fashion.
Into ber big muff were nonchalantly
Itowed ber flexible little hat. fur neckpiece, pocketbook and. much against
her mother's wishes, a pair of sandals.
Wben tbe storage business was over
tha young hopeful smilingly looked at
her parent with the remark. "Isn't lt a
dandy way to get rid of these togs?"
All wbo saw tbe girl's place ot storage
were thrilled with tbe convenience o"
the Idea, and nil doubt ns to the appearance of the "togs" when they emerged
from their biding place was set at
rest wbeu tbe girl, at tbe close of gie
performance, removed her bat from
the muff uoue tlie worse for its temporary Imprisonment.

question nnd lo eletermiue which
