Dyspepsia Tablets. Her experience with
them, as she outlines it, explains why.
"I  was   greatly   troubled   with my
stomach", she writes.    "I had taken so
much medicine that I might say to take
any  more   would  only be making it
worse.   My stomach just felt raw.   I
read of Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets,
snd a lady friend told me they were
very easy to take, so I thought I would
give them a trial and really tliey worked
wonders.      Anyone  having  anything
wrong with his  stomach  should  give
Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets a trial,

Reminiscences of Juatice Grantham
and Lord George Sanger.
London, Dec. 31.���Justice Sir William Grantham ot the King's Bencn
Division, who has just di. d In London, was a good deal of a character.
He was noted for what was regarded
as too great freedom of speech ln his
judicial opinions���hls "blazing Indiscretions" these comments have been
called, and he was inclined to be
truculent and hadl frequent /llffer-
ences with people, but withal he was
a genial kindly man witfi his friends
and neighbors and did not hestitate
to tell a joke at his own expense.
One of his stories was that his appointment to the bench was due to a
misunderstood    remark.      A    distinguished Jurist with whom Sir William
was on close terms of friendship in
the  latter's  younger  days  said  onco
that  whatever  Sir  William, knew  of
the law he was a good judge of horseflesh.    This remark came to the ear*
of the Lord Chancellor, who  understood   It to mean   that   Sir   William
would  make   a good   Judge,  not of
horseflesh, but of the law.   That misunderstanding, according to the story
attributed to the late Justice, brought
him a high regard in the Lor! Chancellor's estimation and caused his appointment to tbe bench.
Another story about Sir William
was that after protesting vainly to a
man who was smoking ln a non-smoking   railway   carriage, he   sought   to
hears of them atacking men ln lonely
camps In the manner of wolves
The dingo never barks, but hla
weird howl is a familiar sound ln the
bush nights and is blood-curdling In
the extreme and trying to the nerves
of the new chum camped alone in the
bush for tbe first time. Owing to his
cunning ani swiftness in changing
quarters the dingo holds his own in
central Australia, and is likely to do
so for many a day to come, even
though the price upon his head���already a generous one^-should be
doubled or trebled.

London, Dec. 31.���The five battle-
shlps of tkis year's shipbuilding program which are about to be laid down
will be as superior to the Dread- j

The flve new battleships���or, to be !
strictly accurate, four battleships and
one   battle-cruiser���wbich    are   now
about to  be commenced will be the !
most remarkable ships yet conceived
by tho naval  Instructor.      They will
not be the largest armored ships ln |

but ln offensive and defensive power
and  speed���ln  fact, ln  the combination of all the most valuable fighting
qualities���they will be without rivals.
It Is rather more than a year ago
since lt was announced that the ships

carry with them an assurance of supremacy  in armored  ships down to
the spring of 1913.   At that date the
last of them will pass into the British  fleet at a moment  when in no-

The subject of our Interview Mr.'
Alfred Hardman, is an Englishman,
born in London 1863. Migrating from
there he came to Toronto in his
early youth, where he received his
education and mechanical training.
"Twenty-six years ago," he says, "I
came west to British Columbia; my
flrst two years beipg passed ln Victoria. From there my next move was
to this city, where I have been a resident ever since."
"Then you are quite an old-timer.'-
"Yes, I can fairly aay so. I have
seen this city grow and develop for
twenty odd yeara. The place has
changed and so bave the people, and
from being a small community, where
if I may put lt so, every one knew
and was interested ln every one else;
it has become a busy, up-to-date, bust-'
ling city."
"What waa your flrst work In this
"Well, I started with E. 8. Schooler
& Co., and was ln their employmeat
continuously untll I went into business for myself. Some years previous to that, however, the Cunningham Hardware Co. took over the business of E. S. Schooler �� Co."
"How long ago is it since you went
into the tinning, plumbing and hardware business?"
"Some twelve years ago Mr. Bryson, now Alderman Bryson, and J
opened up in the premises now occupied by Bryson & Sons, and until
the present owners bought me out,
we ran a very prosperous business.
Being ln business is to a great extent
interesting, and lf profitable, ls very
Interesting, and so after looking
around a little; I opened a hardware,

tional domestic article, and made of
soft,   absorbent,   light   paper   which
does not tear readily when moistened.   The towels are made either in
separate sheets-or in the form of   a
long roll perforated at Intervals   to
facilitate detachment, and after being
used   are  discarded   and  destroyed.
| They are generally made tip ln con-
I slgnments of two hundred and flfty or
I flve hundred sheets, and are greatly
I appreciated not only ln the home, but
in clubs and other Institutions. The
cost of the paper: articles is Infinitely
less than the charge made by a laundry for cleaning a towel that would
be ln use a similar number of times.
We  have a paper  serviette, and   it
would surely be worth the while of
some enterprising Canadian manufacturer to supply a paper towel for drying the hands and face.   The paper
possesses no chemicals wbich are liable to affect the skin Injuriously, and
in   some   Instances    Is    Impregnate!

A gathering notable ln sport annals }n tbe city," and particularly ln
the annals of the Senior Amateur
Football club, was held in the dlnlns
room of the Colonial hotel on Saturday evening. Primarily, the gathering
was for the purpose of presenting to
the winners tbe cup won at the provincial exhibition. The company comprised a large part of the membership
of the senior amateur club, two members of the professional team, and
three or four baseball players. Mr.
Grant, manager of the Rover* team,
Ht. Fletcher, of the pool room, and
Mr. Tlm Mahoney, the best known
referee on the coast, were also present. ., ;t|
the cup was presented to the
senior amateurs by President Ryall,
but Saturday night is a busy night,
and this popular figure in Royal City
sport could not throw off the claim*
of business till the evening was some
wbat advanced. Pending his arrival,
an excellent program of entertainments was gone on wltn. There were
songs, gramophone selections and
solos on tbe mouth organ.

S. Rolston, M. A. jail. Vancouver; Dr.
TolHile  and  Ceo.  Sangster,  Victoria:
J. L. Coote, Chilliwack;  Alex. Davie,
Ladner,   and   P.   H.   Moore,   Agassiz,
has been  appointed  to  formulate  a
standard of perfection for each breed
of horses, cattle, sheep   and    swine
along similar lines to the standards
now adopted for various breeds    of
poultry, pigeons and    dogs.     When
such standards are adopted an exhibition or Judge wlll know   that     any
animal, shown at any B. C. fair must
be Judged according to the type set
out by the B. C. Fair's Association.
It will be decided that uniform colors
be adopted at all B. C.    fairs.     At
present some fairs use blue for first
prise and others
affording financial accommodation to
agriculturists and small traders
throughout the country.
The minister ln bis statement intimated that he would take the necessary steps to have a bill Immediately
passed giving effect to certain provisions which would enable the agrl
culturlsts and small traders to obtain
more llbeial accommodation through
the Bank of France.
The statement was regarded by
the commission as satisfactory and
was formally adopted. This decision
virtually disposes of the Important
question at tbe back of the matter���
the status of the Bank of France, to
gether with the terms *ot extension
or otherwise of its charter.
Subject Has Been Live.
This matter has for some time been
the subject of much discussion, bot'.i
ln political and financial circles, and
has been extensively reviewed and
criticized by tbe press.
According to the Economist, it   appears that the piivilege of the Bans
of  France   which   was   renewed    in
, 1907, will  nominally last until 1920,
j but a stipulation in the charter pro-
; vides that notice to terminate can be
] given during 1911 if [arliament and
the government   wish to   terminate
it in October. 1����. The socUlttta *������

The unanimous opinion of the
chambers of commerce, of merchant*
and manufacturers in favor of the
bank has caused the government to
reject the Socialists' opinion, but the
minister of finance has been willing
to denounce the agreement in order
to obtain more favorable terms for

London, Dec. 31.���Officials of the
Government, and particularly of the
War Office, are wonJering whether
war medals, Including those for special service, have not been issued with
so lavish a hand that their possession
brings no feeling of pride to many
of their recipients.
More tban 30,000 unclaimed war
medals are in the oidnance stores at
woolwlch and the authorities have decided that these shall be melted If application for thm is not made soon.
Fw, If any, o f the general   auction
firms have not bad war medals tor
sale at one time or another. One of
the best known auction concerns,
which makes a specialty of articles
prized by collectors, sold a Victoria
Cross recently.
Military men are discussing the
matter of adopting a new system of
recognition for war service and one
of them expressed the opinion that
poverty alone would Induce a soldier
or his relations to sell war decorations. While there were war medals
Issued in Britain as far back as 1G4:>
by Charles I., the practice of giving,
them by the wholesale was not begun
until all officers and men who served
at Waterloo were authorized to receive them. Britain's frequent wars
since then have produced a flood of
these badges of a grateful country'*
appreciation. Rudyard Kipling has
testified that he has often seen "tho
frontier plalster go for liquor on the
toss," but no man, be declared, would
sell his Victoria Cross.
