by the C. P. R. for 1912. 'lhe object
Ot tnis booklet is to show the opportunity pecu.iar to the ai.ie.enl
towns and cities of the great railway
system, and Westminster manes a
unique showing ln this regard. Sawmills with a daily capacity of 1,500,000
leet and 3'J lish canneries, are items
that attract notice, while attention is
paiticularly drawn to the deep, landlocked, freshwater harbor on which
the city ls built.
The following Is the complete account given:

butaiy population): 12 miles from
Vancouver on the banks of the Frase'

Tliere are good mill and factory sites
with trackage on reasonable tei ms. It
is the central market for the Fraser
Valley, which is one of the finest agri-
cultmai districts in British Columbia.
The city is well laid out; owns river
frontage: has electric light and electric railway connection with Vancouver, which railwav runs east for 61
miles to Chilliwack, opening up a
large agricultural district and also
supplying light and power.

Consul    Denies    that    Exodus   from
Montreal Is Connected with
International Crisis.
Montreal. March 20.���German-Canadians still attached to the reserve of
the kaiser's army, which means
every able-bodied German in Canada,
are, it Is freely stated, making a general movement toward the fatherland,
acting under flrm belief that war between Kngland and Germany is in-
e\itable and only a short way off.
The amount of steamship 11 all ir- to
German ports booked from this city
has shown an appreciable increase
during the past two weeks, not only
from immediate sailings, but also for
sailings stretched over the whole
summer. Local men in touch wltn
the German element of Montreal
state that likelihood of war is freely
discussed and business affairs are being armnged to permit of rapid
exodus to the scene of action should
war be declared. At the German consulate thl3 morning it was stated that
the departure of Germans from Montreal for the home land had nothing
whnte\er to do with the possibility of
war with England. It was emphatically denied that any Germans now
residing In Montreal had been recalled by the home government.

either moved out of position or carried bodily away, has bean received
by the secretary of tue Board of

Edmonds, March 20.���The appointment of a construction engineer for
the past two weeks has been a burning issue among residents of the Burnaby municipality, who objected to
the selection of an American. This
matter waa again brought up at a
special meeting of tee board ot works
and an   adjourned   meeting of   the

for a ship coming to grief by reasnn
of having no buoys to guide her, or
of the same having been car:led out

The subject Is being taken up by

the responsibility for future carelessness of this kind upon the individuals

Foreign  Military Occupation  May Be
Necessary If Government Persists
In   Maltreating    Moslems.
Unless the existing conditions of anarchy and misrule that prevails in the
island of Crete are speedily changed
for the better the foreign military occupation, which ceased ln July, i!h/9,
will be resumed, and wi.l not again
terminate until the Cretan authorities
show some capacity for holding the
balance even as between Christians
and Mohammedans, writes the Lon lon
correspondent of the Mail and Empire.
That is the only Interpretation 'that
can be placed upon the vigorous language   employed    hy   the   protecting
powers in their latest note to the Cretan Government in which they state
that they are determined to maintain
the status quo and the capitulations,
and that if the Cretan Government
persists in sending deputies to the
Athens Chamber or dismisses Mussulman employees, or, ir the Ill-treatment
of Mohammedans continues, the powers will take such measures as they
deem necessary to avert the consequences.
Tne note concludes by declaring
ihat if the Cretans cannot govern
themselves peaceably, without endangering the peace of Euiope, the
powers will Ufke action in a direction
not in conformity with Cretan aspirations.
Moslems   Murdered.
For years the Moslem Inhabitants,
who are outnumbered by the Christians in the proi onion of tea to one,
have been the victims of continual out
rages at the hands of the latter. During the last few months, as cable despatches have shown, hardly a week
.us passed without the committing of
murders or attempted minders, and
In 90 per cent of the cases the perpetrators have escaped scot free, partly
owing to lhe Bupineness of the Government and the inefficiency of the
gen iarmerie, and partly because the
non-Moslem majority ictuses to give
evidence necessary to conviction.
There is little doubt that deliberate
attempts are made to render life in
the island unbearable for the Mohammedans, and thousands of them have
emigrated  to Turkey.
When the foreign troops were withdrawn, mainly at the instance of Sir
Edward Grey, nearly three years ago,
it. was on the understanding that the
Moslems should have fair play and
that their lives and property would be
protected. The powers, in many notes
and communications to the Ottoman
Governmenl, have ma^e themselves
lesponsible for seeing that this protection is secured, and they have also
repeatedly expressed their fixed determination to enforce th* maintenance of the status (iuo of the island
���ind to prevent Its annexation to !
Crete Wants Union.
There Is in Crete a very strong desire for political union with the Hellenic kingdom, and in the long run It
may be accomplished, but there is no
doubt that any act connecting annexation would mean the immediate outbreak of another Greco-Turkish war.
Such complications the powers are
very anxious to avoid, especially now
that there have been distinct signs of
better relations of late between Turkey and Greece, including a cessation of the somewhat menacing movements of troops on the frontiers, the
respective army corps being withdrawn by mutual consent to a dis-
rance at which "incidents" are less
likely to occur.
At the present time all p. quiet '
again, but the Cretans are equally de- J
termined to send deputies to Athens
at any cost when the Greek Chamber
meets In a month or so, and unless
the situation is very carefully handled

Centre of International  Gravity Shifting, Says Lord  Roberts���Position
of Yellow  Races.
"The center of International gravity
has now shifted to the Pacific, and it
is uumly in tnat direction that the
dominating (actors will be lounii
when any sei ious future complications may ailse." This utterance by
Lord Roberts, made in 1DIM, was
quoted by T. Miller Maguire ln-a pa-
paper on '"l'he New Pacific" at the
Royal Colonial Institute, says the Edmonton Journal.
"ln the New Pacific," said Mr. Mu-
gulie, "thero are strategic potentialities und risks, as well us a grand field
tor trading energies. By it dwell the
ancient communities in Asia which
have renewed their mighty youth and
sprung up fully armed in all the panoply or modern civilization. The Yellow race is the great reserve labor
fund of humanity, and a danseious
commercial rival also.
"Hut if Europe insists on sharing
in the wealth of China, sending expeditions to Cathay, and making alli-
nncea with the children of Nippon,
the Yellow race will demand tit for
tat, und a nation that asserts the
Monroe Doctrine may well sit silent I

"Will the Manama Can.u be fortified? If f.o, why? Will its traffic be

most in strategy and commerce by
the completion of M. de Lessep's

j Questioned on the modern taste in
fhe matter of dances, the I rofessor
imparted the intelligence that the majority of dancers were too anxious to
rush matters, and variety in dances
was being cut down. Programs of today are lacking in polkas, Mozurkas,
Varsovlennes, foursteps and flve-
steps, not to s^eak of the barn dance,
etc.    Lancers are only danced occa-
i sionally;   on    the   other   hand    pro-
: grams are being cut down to waltzes
j?.nd twosteps, and it Is quite common
nowadays to see two waltzes following on a program.
The winter season which is better
than the summer, last from October
1 to April 30, and the new hall, which
was not expected to have heen ready
hefore the fall, will be thrown op*n
before the close of the season.

Canadians began to pile up points in

had scored seven times (Talt 4, Martin 2, and Hlggings 1), against trie
solitary point of their opponents.
The second period was out the repetition of the lirst. The English defence was unable to stop the rushes
of the Canadian forwards. The latter
were fast; their stick-handling was
brilliant, and their Bhots uccurate.
Thanks to those qualities, they succeeded in aJdlng eight new paints to
their score (higgins 5, Tait 2, and
Martin 1). At the other end the defence was as sond as ever, and the

Held, as it ls in everything else; as
this publication, in the course of
years embracing virtually an entire
baseball generation, has become the
standard annual publication of the entire baseball* world. This is a big
claim, but it is absolutely sustained
by t^e text, illustrations, quality of

Topping all, it may be Said without
fear of successful contradiction that
Ihe American League Official Guide

handbook lor the national game and
a decided credit to the American

Reach Company, of Philadelphia. This
is the eleventh annual issue of the

The Gift From an Old Friend In Chemung County Inspires Him to an Almost Lyrical Outburst, With Which
Mra. Bowser Shows an Annoying
Lack of Sympathy.
{Copyright,   1912.  by  the  Associated  Liter a iy Press.]
TIIE   Dowsers  had Just  fjnlslled
dinner the other evening wbeu
au expressman drove up wltb a
two gallon Jug which was tugged In Mr. Dowser's name.    Tbe cork
being removed and the conteuts sam-
pled, he smacked his llpe aud explulu-
"This must be hnrd elder. I had a
letter away along last fall from nn old
friend In Chemung county, and I remember that he hinted about sending
me down a Jug of something good Inter
on. Dy .lohn. the taste of it brings
buck the diiys when I used to walk
three miles to the elder mill! The old
<l:iys nre gone never to return, hut here
i.s the elder, uud I'd rather have lt than
in iniich champagne,"
"1 bave beard thut hnrd elder Is almost i:s bud us whisky lo Intoxicate,"
observed Mrs. Dowser us Mr. Bowser
got away with his second gluss within
fire minutes.
"That's nil nonsense. Tliere Isn't

If onl.v \re bud a pumpkin pie uow I'd
feel myself an Uncle Kobe."
Mr. Dowser read his paper for ten
minutes and then descended lo the dining room to see lf the gus whs turned
���out. He decided to kill two birds with
one stone, and n third gluss of bard
**vli\t?r followed the second and flrst. A
-quarter of an bour Inter the Jug was
tipped up for tbe fourth time within
forty minutes, and soon ufter he came
upstairs be began to grin aud chuckle.
His Spirits Rise.
"Anything funny happen today?"
���queried Mrs. Dowser after a sharp
look ut blm.
"Ves; a fat man was running to
���catch a car. nnd-ba. ha. bu!���It was
mean to laugh at him. but wben be
fell over n dog and rolled over and
over how could any one belp but���ho.
iio. bo!"
"1 wouldn't drink any more of that
lwrd elder this evening If 1 were you."
"What's the mutter with the elder?
Uu. bn, hn! Sur. now. look at your
���old cut. Isn't she n perfect picture of
���domestic contentuientV With u deur
little wife 'at my elbow und blamed
���old cut on the heiirth rug I ought to
tie a happy busbunil. eh'r 1 think the
basement door mny be open, nud I'll
j;o down and see."
"I'll cull the girl."
"No: I'll go. Yes: she's n nice old
���cat. uud you are u dour little wife,
nnd If you'd seen thut fnt mnn full
���over thnt dog you'd bnve gone luto a
���hn. hu. bn!"
The basement door wns not open
lhe elder Jug wns, however, nnd Mr.
Dowser took advantage of the occasion As be wns nil ulone and iu uo
hurry he drank n couple of glasses,
nud the taste curried hlm back to the
���days when harvest apples gave blm
the colic. llo smiled to himself while
-dritiuing. but. when he returned to
the silting room Mrs. Dowser noticed
that his hilarity was on the wane,
rive minutes later be turned to ber
nnd said:
"bn you remember that little red
.schoolhouse beyond the bridge wbere
We went to school together'/"
"Of course," she replied.
"Did I tell you thnt lt had been torn
down'/ Yes. lorn down and a cow
stable put up there. How could they
do It? That dear old school liouso was
��� lurroiinded with sentiment. Tliere was
where I llrst met you. "Hiere was
where I flrst loved you. There was
Depression Ensues.
He could not go on. lie pulled ont
bis handkerchief nnd held It to hls
eyes, and Mrs. Dowser realized that
lhe bard cider from old Chemung had
got in Its work In good shupe.
"Hadn't you better lie down on thr
lounge for nn hour or so?" sbe suggested ns his tears continued to fall.
"No. sir!" he replied with considerate? force. "Mrs, Dowser, whnt kind
of a woman are yoa)   Here they go
ftnd tear down our tittle red school-
house, one uf tbe most sacred spots on
.iurth to us, and you haven't a word
to say! Even when I tell yon tbat
cows are uow chewing tbeir cuds on
the spot where I first told you of my
love, you do not shed a tear."
"1 can't weep over all the sad things
I bear, lu this case 1 suppose tbe
building was about rendy to fall anyhow.   Won't you lie down?"
"And tbere was an old oak under
which we used to gather acorns." continued Mr. Dowser as bis face grew
redder nnd more tours came. "Tbey
have gone and cut down that dear old
tree nnd put up n windmill lu tts place.
How dare they do lt! It wus under
the um-umbrageous branches of that
old oak that I first told you of my
love; that you told me my love waa-re-
turued. I wanted to buy that tree and
preserve It under a glass to tae. but
they have cut down and sold It for
stove wood!"
Too Unsympathetic.
"It's too bnd," snld Mrs. Dowser,
"but don't you think you'd better go
to bed now? I'm afraid you're not feeling well."
"No. I'm not feellns well. Do you
know, I feel that I won't live to bother
any one much longer? 1 shnll be found
dead in my bed somo morning, and
Hint will be the end of It. I did want
to see that dear old bill again, the spot
where I first told you of my love as
we were sliding down the hill, but lt
ennnot be. Do you know they hare
torn that bill down and made n wood-
yard on the spot? How could they do
It-how could they?"
"Well, we nre sorry, but we enn't
help it, and I think you'd better go to
bed now. Y'ou know you were up late
lust night."
"Co to lied? Never! Uow enn I go
to bed when I know that the deur old
horse pond In which 1 first told you of
my love has been cut up nnd sold by
the piece? Such things sink deep into
iny heurt. nnd lf you were u true hearted worhan you would be weeping instead of silling there like a log of
wood. Y'ou wouldn't care if uli the
do:ir old things of your childhood were
traded off for turnips."
"Where nre you going?" asked Mrs.
Dowser as he started down the hall.
"Where am I going? I'm going to
find some one who cnu sympathize
with me nnd understand my feelings.
Y'ou can sit there witb your heart of
stone, and the blamed old cat can sit
there with you, but I���I"���
The Last Chapter.
He put on his hat and went out. The
night wind dried h!s tears, but nt the
same time It set Unit hnrd cider working up In the top of his heud. nud Mr.
Bowser hnd only renched the corner
when be had to reach out for the
fence. Whnt hnppened to blm ln the
next quarter of nn hour was told by
tbe policemun wbo brought Iti in home.
"Madam,"' he snld as Mrs. Bowser
answered hls ring at the bell, "ls tbts

"Yes." she replied ss Mr. Bowser
was assisted into the ball.
"His name Is Downer, isn't it?'"
"Tesh. name's Dowser." mused the
culprit as he leaned up against tbe
wall and started nrotind.
"Hns unything hnppened to unhinge

foutid him at tbe corner muttering
about a little red school house. He
Isn't crazy. Is he?"
"Not ut all. He simply received a
Jug of hard cider from Chemung county tonight."
"I ace. mndum; I understand."
Ten minutes later Mr. Dowser was
In bed und unconscious to the world,
and Mrs. Dowser was downstairs
pouring out tbe rest of the elder and
replacing (he contents with water
When he came down to breakfast he
sought the Jug for another drink, but
after a taste he aet It down add

Mme. Du Gast to Go on a Mission for
France Among Fierce Tribesmen.
Mme. Crespin Du Ga?t, that dainty
nnd daring Franchwoman who hai?
distinguished herself in such hazardous exploits as motor boat and automobile racing, trick riding on horse--
bac'. and on the bicycle. I '"Hooning.
fencing, skillful use of firearms and
exploring wild countries, is about tn
Lit. for happiness and fame in a. new
way. At the request of the Minister
of Public Instruction of France she
will go on an official mission as head
of an expedition to southern Morocco
for the purpose of stndyinj the social
condition and handicraft of tlie natives. Since many of thesi tribes are
avowedly hostile to France the mission is regarded as being dangerous
in the extreme, but the intrepid Mme.
Pu (last eagerly accepted the oppcr-
tunity offered her to again brave danger. It will be her third visit to the
Moors and she experts to go among
tho nomad tribes to tell them that
France is their friend, incidentally
obtaining authoritative information
concerning their Customs and tlieir
fee'ings  toward  her  country.
Th-> whole world knows of Mme.
Du tiust as a sportswoman. Her exploit* are tTirillitn und they are indulged in from purs love cf excitement, for she i.s wealthy. Aside from
tier love of adventure, Mine. Du (ia>t
is not the least bit manisli. On tba
contrary she is divinely feminine.
There is no liner figure in all Paris
and when she appears in evening
dress in the salons sho is (he most
greatly admired of women. For years
she has been a popular Idol on the
boulevards, whether afoot, on horseback, c r in her favorite motor car.
The only Ill-natured comments come
[ruin  envious  rivals  in  society.
As n sample ol her daring it is related that several years r*i sir wished to enter a motor car race from
Paris to Mailed, but the authorities
refused. Balked in her desire to see
li'iw close sh.; could come to a t"r-
rible death and yet esca] e, she took
to traveling among the clouds. Taking lesson 3 from cantor Dumont, she
made several flights over Pui i.s witli
i.iat distinguished Brazilian, lt failed to satisfy her iiecause they,remained too close to the housetops of tlie
c.ty. 'Nothing but the clocks would
suit her purpose, m> she bad a balloon
mads to orler, witli a spacious wieker-
work car in which she could read,
lunch on chicken and champagne,
and perhaps fare death.
Gradually this balloon became a
lir.'sonie thin-j. its only redeeming
feature being ths; possibility of an
accident, wliich would compel her t<>
take to tiie parachute. Ah, that wns
n happy tnought! She would not wait
for an accident. She would know the
sensations of descent by parachute
without having to wait f<r so troublesome thing as the liapp?ning of seme
accident. One might fenow her French |
origin just by this.
Se.ted in the car of her balloon one
day, at a height oi a mile and a hull
above the green fields to the north ul
PariR. Mme. Du Gast testsd every part
ol   the   apparatus,   secured   tierselt   l>
j th^ ropes leading down frcm Uie clns-
' ed   parachute,   pulled   the   valve   Tops
t ��� let out the air, so that the balloon
would follow her descent, and calmly
cut loose.   She fell like a shot, thouan
"it seemed to her that the    alloon was
shooting upward,  instead.   Then  the
ribs of the parachute suddenly spread,
tbe dome of silk caught the air and
she knew that she was floating earthward as easily and softly . s a bit "f
thistle down.   There had been thrills,
certainly, at the start; after that there
was simply the delight of a new sensation.
Such is Mine. Du Gast. Fifteen
years, ago this rich, pleasure-loving,
notoriety-seeking Parisian figured only
as the unknown widow of a man who
made a fortune by selling furnishing
goods on the installment plan and
letting out clothes for hire. It has
required fifteen years of sensational
recklessness to force her way from
obscurity to recognition as the most
daring sportswoman in the ^vorld.
Such a woman will make good un her
present mission if any one could, that
is certain.
The intuition of the moral
sentiment is an insight of the
perfection of the laws of the
soul; these laws execute themselves; they are out of time,
out of space, and not subject
to circumstance; thus in the
soul of man there is a justice
whose rejjibutions are instant
and entire; he who does a
good deed is instuntly M-
nobled him.-elf; he who does
a mean deed i.s by thp action
itself contracted.���R. W. Emerson.
Salves Can't Cure Eczma
In regard to skin diseases, meiical
I authorities are now agreed on this:
Don't imprison the disease germs in
your skin by the use of greasy salves,
and thus encourage them to multiply.
A true cure of all eczematous diseases
can be brought about only by usins
the healing agents In the form of a
' liquid.
I    A simply wash:      A compound or
Oil of Watergreen, Thymol, and other
ingredients as combined in the D.D.D.
Prescription.    This penetrates to the
disease germs and destroys tbem,
then soothes and heals the skin aa
nothing else has ever done.
We have made fast friends of more
tban one family by recommending
this D.D.D. Prescription to a skin sufferer here and there, and we want yon
to try it now. We can tell you all
