According to a communication received by the secretary of the royal
reception committee from Colonel
Lowther lt la very probable that Their
Royal Highnesses the Duchess of
Connaught and Princess Patricia will
not accompany the Qovernor Oeneral
when he visits the city on Saturday.
The presence of tbo royal ladles In
the city on October 3, however, la assured by the communication which
reads as follows:
Colonel Lowther Wires.
"Your telegram received and Governor General will be there and the
visit cn the 21st will be carried
through exactly as arranged, although
probabiy the Duchess and Princess
may not be able to attend. Tbeir
Royal Highnesses will arlve on the
3rd proximo at 3 p.m., for tho visit
to the exhibition, and they will leav?
at 5:20 p.m. (8lgned) H. C. Lowther,
military secretary to the Governor
General."
The cause of the rearrangement of
the plans of the royal party is not
given, but lt ia thought that the royal
ladies may wish to rest on Saturday.
The Information of the change has
necessitated some slight alterations to
the program for Saturday. The tea
to be given by the lady members of
the board of school trustees at the Y
M. C. A. wlll be cut out entirely, and
the presentation of bouquets by the
May Qupcii at the descent will probably be postponed to October 3.
City Getting Ready.
With the royal visit only a little
over three days off the city Is gradually commencing to take on Its reception dress. One or two of the buildings on Columbia street bave already
been decorated, while the court home
is commencing to take on a resplendent appearance under the liberal use
of flags and bunting. The real decora
tion of the various streets of the city
along the route of the royal progres-i
will rrcbably be begun on Wednesday. The Hags, pennants and bunting
for this purpose bave been practically
all prepared and are lying In the
board of trade rooms ready for the be
ginning of operations.
lt is now proposed to have but one-
arch ch Columbia street, and not two
as flrst suggested.   An effort ls belns
made to gel the lumbermen and flsh
lng people to combine In the orectlon
nf au arch that will be representative
of the two great Industries of West
minster, the lumber and the fisheries
Though the matter Is only in a tenta
tive form at tbe present time. It    Is
hoped that the erection of the struc
ture will be commenced by this even
lng.    The time Is so short now that
tf started later lt would probably not
be    finished    In  time    for Saturday.
Plans  fnr the decoration of the city
hall have been prepared and the work
will be commenced shortly under the
superintendence, of   City   Electrician
Bowler and Flre Chief Watson.
Indian Addressee.
The presentation of addresses from
the Indian tribes of the Fraser valley,
and the local school board are among
the latest developments in connection
zlth the reception.   This wlll make a
"'al of three, addresses which alone
will be received aud presented to the
noverncr   General.     In   accordance
with the usual custom copies of these
have beon mailed back east for the
Information of Hia Royal Highness.
On account of the bad condition of
Con. nereU��l Drive, Vancouver, lt may
be r. pessary to route the royal train
from the "'crmlnal City over the
Eburne line. At the present timi
' ere ls only a single track on a large
k 'Ctlon of Commercial Drive and
Bl vetal switches have to be negotiated
by ve train vhich might not give the
Governor General a very good Impression of the line. Should His
Royal Highness come vta Eburne the
time of arrival would be about *h<*
same.
The residents of Queensborough
awoke yeeterday morning to tbe
sound of electric cars running, and
there waa a great waving of hands
and the ahovtng aaide of window curtains when car No. 100 made the flrat
trip on the new Lulu Ialand extension.
It was at first intended to make the
start at 6 o'clock, leaving Columbia
street, but the fact tbat thla did not
fit In wltb the time that the workmtf.
employed in tbe industries on the Ialand go to their work, made the officials of the B. C. E. R. change the
starting time to 6:15 o'clock.
Yesterday the aervlce went along
smoothly and the car kept up to
schedule time. A little mishap befel
one of the work trains yesterday
afternoon about 1:30 o'clock. At the
extreme terminus ot the new extension a little of tbe track remains un
ballasted and locomotive No. 915, with
two ballast cars, made the trip. The
cars took a sudden liking to the mus
keg and late last evening the employees had not then succeeded ln
getting them on the track.
The conductors who were on the
cars had no kick coming yesterday
for right and left compliments were
handed out to tbe company for opening up the new line, and thus giving
the residents access witb the rest of
the city.

tn the way of athletic enjoyment
Definite assurance haa been obtain
ed from the B. C. E. R. that once the
club Is built there, the company will
erect a station at the nearest point on
the Burnaby Lake line.
Mr. F. J. Hart, of Hew Westminster, is at present building a f20.000
home within eight ot the lake, while
other gentlemen have already erected large residences ln its vicinity.
Easy access to both New Westminster and Vancouver has made the
proposition appeal to many of the
business and professional men of both
cities and with the capital on hand
to commence work, Burnaby Lake
will be the scene of much activity
during tho next twelve montha.
GOLDEN GRAIN IS
SAFELY HARVESTED
Edmonds, Sept. 16.���Tbe Burnaby
lake Improvement scheme came up
for further discussion before the
council this evening following an ad
dltlonal report by the engineer as to
the means of clearing the Brunette
river of obstructions iu order to allow the water from tbe lake to flow
without impediment. Thla matter
came up at the last meeting, and, following Councillor Fau Vel'a sugges
tion that the engineer make an inspection of tbe river, tbe report was
labled until this evening.
Engineer MacPherson reported that
he had found the bed of the river ft:
a serious condition, especially be
tween the outlet from the lake and
the Cariboo road bridge. Thia la a
distance of about 2500 feet and the
drop being very small, but little water
can pass over the obstructions. His
report stated that a matter of about
$2500 would be necessary to clear the
river to any extent, which should be
done Immediately while the river wai
low.
Councillor Fau Vel and Chairman
MacDonald, of the board of works
were still of tbe opinion that action
be taken before the rainy season sets
lu and their remarks were upheld by
Mr. C. F. Sprott, of Burnaby Lake
who stated that with the improve
ment In the river, the land in th?
vicinity of Burnaby lake would be
come more valuable and tbe property
owners benefitted should be willing
to stand the expense.
However, owing to the absence of
Reeve Weart, who is not expected
home from England until two weeks'
lime, the report was again tabled.
The H. V. Tucker road contract on
Douglas road was again brought in
the limelight by the reading of another report from the engineer defining thc financial situation of the
work.
Tuc':er, it was stated, obtained the
contract for $31,000, but after being
paid a little over $16,000 defaulted on
his work whicli was taken over bj
the municipality. Now lt appears
there is a deficit of several thouaand
dollars, nud it is altogether probable
that the bondholders will be compelled to make up part of this deficit.!
Messrs. F. J. Hart, C. F. Sprott, F.
J. Pearce and L. C. Hill appeared before the board In regard to a road
beinp: opened up to the site of the
Burnaby Lake Country club. Tliey
agreed to furnish half the expense of
the cost, which is estimated to be
about $13,000. This was accepted by
the councillors.
The council afterwards went Inti
committee to take up certain mattera
in regard to pipe laying contracts In
North Burnaby.

WESTMINSTER HOMES
RAPIDLY GROWING
Already   Four   Hundred   Permits  for
Handsome Residences  Issued
This Year.
Evidence that tbe population ot the
city ia advancing steadily la given ln
the unusually large number of permits that during 1912 have been
taken out at the city building inspec
tor's office for buildings to be used
for residential purposes.
Never before In tbe history ol
Westmlnater, with tbe exception
probably of the year or two years following the great flre, bas residential
building been so active as at the present time, and from the number of
fresh structures being commeticeu
dally lu all parts of tbe city, this ac
tivlty shows signs of increasing rather than diminishing.
Of the 515 permits taken out by all
and sundry this year, In the neighborhood of 400 were for the construction of new homes, rooming or apart
ment houses and alterations to buildings previously erected and those being used for residential purposes.
This compares with 442 permits Issued during the whole period of last
year from Feb. 1, the date on which
the present system of recording came
Into vogue.
One thousand dollars is considered
a good sum to pay for lumber, and the
erection of a house, but the majority
of the Westminster bomes may be
said to be handsome and palatial
when built at the cost of $1500 or
! over. There were a few residence permits Issued under the $1500 mark,
but on  the other   hand   there   have

London, Sept. 16.���The annual report of the British prison commissioners, just issed, shows a record
diminution ln the number of prisoners. A slight increase cf drunkenness is shown, but this ls moro than
offset by a marked decrease in the
number of serious offences and a
great reduction ln the amount of law-
breaking women.
The number of prisoners for 12
months is 175,000, a decrease of 10,-
000 and the lowest per hundred thousand of the population on record.
Some 15,543 were imprisoned for debt
on civil process. The number sentenced for drunkenness increased by
853.
Owing to the decrease of the female criminal population, the female
wings of Dorchester and St. Alban'4
prisons were closed. Dr. Charles
Goring, senior deputy medical office.-
at Holloway Jail, submitted a report
showing that criminals are not physically differentiated from law-abiding
people. He finds, nevertheless, that
Criminals are derived from those In
the community Inferior In stature and
weight, and that, speaking generally,
the less physically and mentally able
lend to become criminals.

Troops  Operating   In     Rain    Soaked
Cast Annlla���King   George   a
Spectator Only.
Cambridge, Eng., Sept. 16.���The
British "grand maneuvres" began to- 1
day, when, under the eyea of King |
George, 60,000 troops, hors^, toot anJ |
guns, with 30 aeroplanes and two dir- j
iglbles, endeavored to decide the pro-1
bable fortunes and fate of a hostile
army advancing on London.
Tha maneuvre ground comprises
the counties ot Norfolk, Suffola and
Cambridge, and parts of Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Huntingdonshire, or, as the whole district Is
called, East Anglia. Not since the
days When Oliver Cromwellled his
Ironsides against the royal forces
has East Anglia witnessed such a
huge gathering of troops, and the
country with- its high bridges, broad
dykes. Innumerable streams, narrow
and frequently Impassable roads and
other Intersections, Bhould prove an
admirable ground for guer.lla warfare.
The Red army,* bnder command of
Lieut.-Gen. Sir Douglas Halg, comprising a cavalry division, two Infantry
divisions, two battalions of cyclists
more than 200 assorted cannon and a
dozen aeroplanes, 25,000 men in all
Is supposed to have effected a land
Ing on the east coast and to be
marching in a southwesterly dlrec
tion on London, lt Is up to the Blue
army, under Lieut.-Gen. Sir James
Grlerson, with 35,000 men, 18 aeroplanes and a couple of dirigibles, to
make mincemeat of them before midnight Thursday.
Although he -will motor over the
maneuvre ground every day, King
George is not going to try and emu
late his warlike cousin, the German
Kaiser, and umpire or command the
troops. He is leaving It entirely to
the general, and will be merely a
spectator. Accompanied by the army
headuarters staff, under the command
of Sir John D. French, chief of., the
Imperial general staff, King George
has taken up quarters at Trinity College in Cambridge. Premier H. H.
Asquith, War Minister Colonel J. E.
B. Seely and other ministers, with the
foreign military attaches, are also
here. Major George Sciuier, military
attache to the London embassy, represents the United States?
The most important phasu or th"
manoeuvres will bo the aerial scouting, for England hus never had so
many aircraft engaged before. Important result's are also expected
from the employment of large numbers of automobiles and nictor cyclists scouts, and from tho extensive
use of wireless telegraphy.
The fact that tho best part of the
countryside was tinder water a few
weeks ago renders the schema cf operations particularly arduous and tho
ground Is still so soft that it has been
found impossible to let the troops
bivouac oa their line of march. Accordingly tho msn who have been
washed cut rf their camps and soaked ever and over again during the
past six weeks, are being billeted a'
farm houses, barracks and Other
buildings. Friday next K'n;: Qfeorgt
reviews the combined red and blu-
forces.

Sermon? would taVe to sea if war

directed exclusively toward the poss'-

Tokio, Sept. 16.���The city ha3 been
kept in a state of excitement since
the suic.des of General Nogi and his
w.fe, Countess Nogi, by rumors that
other persona had ended their lives
In testimony of their devotion to the
departed emperor, Mutsuihito.
Ail such reports, however, proved
to be baseless.
General Nogl before taking his own
life prepared three sta.cinents which
he sealed. These will probably be
made public tomorrow.
Before plunging his sword into hi.
throat, General Nogl drew his knlf.
across his abdomen, causing the skli
to break. This was done In accord
ance with the ancient customs of tht
Japanese, v. hieh General Nogi wa.
mo3t careful to observe In preparing
for deatb.
it is now understood that Genera1
Nogi paid a visit to hls closes
friends on tbe day before hc ended
his life. Among others he vlsiteu
Pr nee Artimo Yamagata, one of Japan's distinguished men. To each ol
friends he is said to have bid fare
well, 'suspected General Nogi's de
Sign and demanded of hint In alarm:
"You are not going to de, 1 hope?'
Nogi did not reply.
Friends of General Nogi now declare that his mind of late had been
obsessed by the memory of the Japanese losses at .fort Arthur during
the Russo-Japanese war.

.THE DUKE'S VISIT.
It is wift *****?* VkaA the newa is
receive* ttat the royal ladles with
the Governor Cawal may not see the
city on Satarttaj next, but we may
be consoled tay tte Hsct that thej will
come here later *��en Hls Royal Highness steama sp tte FVaser from Victoria to offldsUr open the provincial
exhibition.
Meanwhile H ie hoped that the citizens as a trtiole wffl realize that the
visit of the representative of the king
means a very great deal to Westminster. Acconpnnying him are two of
the most sMe representatives of the
British press, and from more reaBon3
than one it is desirable that every
effort by each man, woman and child
in the cily sfccmld be directed towards doing as aaneh as he or she
can towards making the visit memorable, for by so doing they will be
both honoriug tte Governor General
and bringing honor to themselves and
their city.
It is gratifying to learn that former
members of tte naval, military and
auxiliary force* kave determined to
do their part in welcoming so distinguished a seMier as the Duke of
Connaught, tmSci whom many ol
them bave aerved both in war and
peace.
By decorating our houses in a
manner worthy of the occasion, by
coming in oor thousands to cheer and
view our royal visitor, by responding
to any appeals Ibat may be made by
the royal .reception committee during
the short time ttat is yet to elapse
before Saturday rolls round, there is
not one of us *nt can do some littl<>
act which may count for much on a
red letter day in Westminster's hi3-
-tory.
TRENCH REGULATION
AND SALMON TRADE
Stamping   Tins   Will'  Hinder   Export
Business���Trade Within
Empire-Cctpij
Victoria, Sept. 17.���Local canners
stated yesterday that the new Mil
pending in France, whereby all tinned
goods must be stamped, will undoubtedly affect the sales cf British Columbia salmon ln the republic. It is Impracticable to mark the tins and only
by receiving orders long in advance
from the French market could this
be done. The export salmon is usually shipped without labels and labelled in thc United Kingdom by the
larger dealers.
There is a demand for B. C. salmon from France, and that trade ls
considered necessary by local exporters, who wlll probably have an advantage over United States shippers
in this regard, ln South Africa the
British preference has had the effect
Qf sending buyers who formerly
bought largely in the United States
to Canada for their supplies.
Last year and the year previous
there was a large export demand, and
good prices were realized. This year
the Alaska packers, who opened many
new canneries In the north, having a
very large pack cf cheaper salmon,
are quoting very cbeap prices.
There is in British Columbia a much
larger pack of the cheaper grades,
and a market will have to be found
for them. Therefore, the now French
regulation will prove disadvantageous
The demand from the British possessions, in which the Canadian shippers have had the advantage of the
preferential tariff, is good, and the
local exporters can compete with
benefit in this trade with the American exporters.

THE   VERSATILE   DUKE.
For real versatility we must take

seems' to be an authority on almost
everything.
Some time ago he tock us newspapermen to task lor using so much
slang. He taaa given ont a few goo.1
opinions on tte value of rifle shooting. He encourages the cadet movement He teBs Port Arthur and Fort
William to quit ttnr silly little racket
and get together. Farther west he
advises the agriculturists to adopt
mixed farming aa rapidly as possible.
It wouldn't ke surprising if in British Columbia lie fens some pointed remarks to-make about! the lumbering
industry or tte Asking.
isn't It a pity ttat His Royal Highness' nOsiflon keeps him from talking polities? We believe bv could put

G. Fraiikland rrom t'.ie directorate.

refused to tclk about the matter save
to remark that he had resigned "in j

an opportunity to appoint a man in \
his place v.ho was a thorough agricul j
turallBt."
In other quarters it is rumored that
there is considerable  friction  among |
the members of the board themselves I
mused by Uie recent criticism of the;
dominance cn the Industrial and spec
tabular svle.   lt was hinted that some
oilier resignations might follow.
"The exhibition," sa'd one man, "i3
no longer what it was intended to be

EASTBOURNE    MURDER.
Identity of "British Army Officer" Is
Revealed.
London. Sept. 16.���"Robert Hieks
Murray's" identity is no longer a mystery. First by meana of the photograph of his handwriting and afterwards by means of a portrait sent bv
the I ondon police to Kpstbourne, it
has been established that the East-
bournfl murderer's real name was
Robert Henry  Money.
lie is the brother of Miss Mary
Monev, the young lady who was so
strangely and so mysteriously murderer In Merstham tunnel on the
night of Snnday. Sept. 24, 1906. The
Merstham tunnel mystery caused a
groat sensation throughout the country at the time, and though every possible inquiry waB made by Scotland
Yard and the local police at Clapham
Junction, where the victim was employed the enigma was never solved,
and It remains today as baffling a
puzzle as ever.
Robert Henry Money had no military history, as hls life story distinctly shows. But it is a notable fact,
that he an other members of I1I3
family has associations with Kingston, Farnborough and other places
mentioned either by him or his victims in the Eastbourne crime. Tm
.secret of his financial resources ih,
yet unrevealed.
London, Sept. 16.���Ulster day.
which is now rapidly approaching,
will probably be the most memorably
demonstration in support of the Act,'
of Union which the Prostestants of
Ireland have ever given. The whole
of the northern province of Ireland
is in a state of ferment and the'historic animosity between the Protestants and Catholies of Belfast, of
which It is difficult for anyone hblt-
side of Ireland to have a proper conception, is becoming more Intense
with the approach of September 28,
the day fixed for the signing of the
solemn league and covenant binding
aR classes of the community to resistance to Home Rule.
The precise forms of the covenant
will remain unknown until the Ulster
Unionist council meets on September
23, but' it is believed that it will declare uncompromising hostility to any
Dublin parliament and pledge It*
signatories to refuse to pay any taxation declared by any such legislature.
The suggestion has been made In
some papers that the Irish Unionist
leaders contemplate the seizure of the
Belfast postoffice or the customs
house, but this is discredited in au
thorative quarters, though there i
little doubt that plans have alread;
been drawn up for the institution of
an Ulster parliament in the event ol
the Home Rule bill becoming the law
of the land.
The Ulster movement Is as muc'
religious as political, as it is probable
that almost all the ministers of thi
Protestant churches    in Ulster   wil
i!gn    the    covenant,     \rraneement
are being made to hold special    re
ligious services in  every  district  of
the province in    which   there   is   a
Protestant community before the people sign the covenant, and it is prac
tically certain that the day will    b
made a general holiday.
Belfist is, ef course, the heart a-.u-
soul of the movement, and the cor
pcraticn, with it3 overwhelming
Unionist political complexion, havin;
now the power to enforce a genera'
holiday, has decided to asli the em
ployer3 to n-i'ie September 28 a da>
Of rest.
The government equally ef course
is watching developments in the situa
tion very closely because it is reccg
nized by all unbiased observers tha
if Ulster declines to be    taxed,    the
Heme Rule parliament   wlll soon br
fajed with a crushing deficit.   It ma;
be a week and ross'bly longer before
the covenant ls fully signed and estimates as to tbe n-imber cf signatures
It  will attract vary,    greatly.    Some
| c ilculators,  who include every    Pro
, testant baby,  go as far as to make
the total a million.
The campaign will begin with *>
series of big meetings throughout Ll
ster, the first one at Enniaklllen or
September 18 and the final one ir
Ulster hall, Belfast, on September 27.
At each meeting the same resolution
will be put: "We will not have Home
Rule."
The Unionist leaders are preparing
a peace campaign, but the Orangemer
are resolved to take up arms if neces
sary. They have been drilling fo:
the last year and are known to have
plenty of arms and ammunition.
A new organization, called thr
Young Citizen Volunteers of Ireland
j has just been formed, and though It
is described as non-political, the fact
: of its being composed largely of
Orangemen suggests the use to whlcl-
it would be put if the government
took drastic measures to crush thc
resistance of Ulster.
The Unionist newspapers are pointing to the American revolution as a
justification for Ulster, and say that
when the Stamp Act was imposed on
the American colonies, 147 years ago
there wa3 much elaborate reasoning
In the House cf Commons to prove
that parliament had the right to impose the tax, but the arguments did
not alter the fact that the colonists
d!d not intend to let themselves be
taxed by the legislature of the
mother country. The point that had
to be faced was that the Aplonlstl
were resolved to persist in their attitude and go to all lengths in resist
ing attempts to compel suhmi33lon.
The same Hi'uiation, It is contended
exists in Ulster today, and the homilies of the Commons will not per
suade the people to accept Horn
Rule.
Mr. Winston Churchill's remark
able speech <u Loche on Thursda
seems to contain a tentative sugges
Hon as to a way oul wl hunt oomph t
surrender by the Liberal Government
Mr. Churchill pursues Home Rule t.
Its logical conclusion to separate par
llomanlB tor England, Scotland, ire
l:md ami Wales, with four parllamenl
to have representatives from all tht
component parts of the Empire,
"Irish Freedom," a monthly pub
llahed in Dublin, wants nothing to d
with an Imperial Parliament, In li
current issi:e It says:
"As regards our aim little discus
sion is required, it is an Independent
Irish republic, We are Republicans
not alone by choice, but of necessity
for as Devlin and Rtelly have said
freedom can take but one torn,
among us. On this point there can
be no compromise."
Half the army of Ireland, and two
thirds of the police will bo drafted into Belfast and vicinity on Ulster Da-,
to restrict the Orange rebellion to 'V.
rising of words."

FOR AIL TIME TO
IGNORE MINTO CUP
L ispcr:sman.like Decision of Big Four
���Torontos Will Not Come West
After Silver ware.
Toronto, Sept. 16.���At a meeting
< I tbe Big Four Lacrosse union In tbe
Toronto Street railway office at
in,on today a motion was adopted to
Ignore the Minto cup for all time,
l'he Torontos, consequently, wlll not
not go after the Minto cup.
Well ! Well ! Well ! So Mr. R. J.
Fleming hag decided to ignore the
emblem of the championship of tha
World in lacrostse.
And to think that Oeorge Kennedy,
Chai l.e Querrie and Percy Quinn are
aid ng and abetting Mr. It. J. ln this
liitle move.
That this attempted blow at lacrosse will be heralded as a joke in
bcth the East and West there Is no
f ar whatever.
lhe Minto cup, donated by a former governor general to represent tha
championship in lacrosse, ha.t been
u.ovmg about the country for a good
I'any years. It waa first held in the
Kast, but In 1308 the Salmon Hellies
ir.ade an attack on the Shamrocks.
then the holders of the. trophy, and
bmc", that year the ellverware haj
rested on the Pacific ccast. No matter whether the Dig Four Ignore tho
Minto cup cr not, the feeling through
GOt the whole of the Dominion will
still stick that the championship of
the world rests with the team hold'.ng
the trophy in Its possession
To the Cornwells the credit must
be given for making arrangements In
i.>j2.ird-to ��".ip gnrr.es and the eld N.
I.. TT. wlll be stronger than ever with
public sentiment after this petty de-
r'-'on cf the would be wreckers of
eastern lacrosse.

"I cannot afford a clerk. I wish 1

"I kept books for one of the largest

"That may be, but I hare told yon

"Let me work for yon without pay.

Mnrtelll was much cnptirnted with

was familiar to hlm. but he could not
tell wbere he bad seen hlm. to which
Micele replied lb.it tiothlUK was more
likely, since they hnd both lived In Ibe

Micele did not know anything ubout

the former's assistance, the business
seemed to Improve. It did not nppear
tbat tbe Rales were larger, but somehow or otber when Micele took off a
jrtatement from the books he always
showed nn Increased profit Indeed.
eo pleased was Mnrtelll that he told
bis clerk be might draw $5 a week for
salary. But Micele said tbat be preferred to stick to bis contract and
would not accept any pay for bis work.
Mnrtelll lived In n room In one of the
narrow streets of lower New York.
When he left his shop after business
hours he Invariably went to tbls sleeping npnrtment alone. Btit one dny.
nfter drinking a bottle or two of wine
wltb his clerk, he Invited Micele to go

Cheating the Yeggs.
Safe blowing Is uu longer either popular or profitable for tbe "yegg" wbo
tries to pull off a Job In Wllmette.
Tbls peculiar situation was shown
wben, following tbe visit of two "pe-
tertnen" to the feed store of Frank
Kiitten, 701) West itailroad avenue,
Kuitoii discovered he waa a richer
mun than he was before hla safe was
rubbed.
Three men obtained DO cents In pennies and 1)0 cents iu stamps. Kutten
acquired two fire dollar horse blankets
whicb the yeggs thoughtlessly left behind thein.
Kulten attributes his luck to bis
tboughtftilness for the comfort of vis-
Itiiy: sufe blowers. Several days before a safe In a neighboring store was
blown and ruined, while all Ihe Intruders got wns 'Jit cents. Taking Ills
cue from this, Kutten bung u curd on
the door ofbis safe which rend:
"Denr Yegg���Don't waste your powder. The safe is unlocked. Help yourselves.   You're welcome."
One night the yeggs broke Into (he
store through a small rear window.
Tboy rend the sign and opened tbe
door. Tliey took the pennies and
stumps, aad (hen. apparently not being
used to such courtesy and usually being obliged to use blankets to deaden
the sound of the explosion, they left
lbe store without taking their two
blankets with them.

THE WORLD'S WORK DEPENDS
ON THE WORLD'S DIGESTION
Prom the captain of industry to the
hod carrier���from milady iu the auto to
the woman with the scrubbing brush���
tbe accomplishments of every one of us
depend absolutely on the accomplishments of our stomachs. Backed by a
good digestion, a man can give the best
that is iu him. When his stomach fails,
he becomes a weakling.
To this loss of power no one need
submit. Right habits of eating,
drinking, sleeping and exercise, aided
by Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets, will
restore and maintain the full efficiency
of tbe human mind and body.
Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets contain
the active principles needed for the
digestion of every kind of food. They
go to the assistance of the weakened
stomach, and enable tlie sufferer, right
from the start, to assimilate aud get tlie
benefit of the food eaten. With this
assistance, the digestive organs regain
their tone, and soon the use of the tablets
is no longer necessary.
If your stomach is not working properly, try Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets.

jiave perfectly good reason to bonat
just aa loudly, for the same thing is
happening right there nnd, right now
as is going on in the West, says Tbe
Globe.
1    Since the spring of the present year
sixty   famlliM   of   the United States
have   sold   their   farms in   Ohio, Indiana and Illinois   nnd   have moved
into Essex county,  where they  have
bought new farms, nnd are now settling down  to lii'eome Canadian ,citi-
sens.   According to the figures of the
Canadian     Immigration     office     in
Windsor,   these, sixty families   have
brought with them an average of hetween $5,000 and   $10,000   each,   and
their totnl cujiitiil thus wonld amount
to ln the neighborhood of   $500,000.
Besides this th<-y hnve brought horse*
to the valu" of $25,000.
���'    Most of  those families   ore   good,
old-fashioned furniers' families, vary-
. ing in number from thre to   eight
Many    of    them   jn    addition   have
brought their own  hired   heb.   and
accordingly    hnve   not   to   face   the
great problem of securing furm labor.
Several  real  estate  companies   are
I exploiting the Ess x fiirm's. advnrtis-
ing -the  county  extensively  through
Ohio. Indiana and Illinois, and thereby voting in n manner na immiirrulmn
agents.    Tne  campaign   was   Btarted
by   them     ln-t     year,    when    thy
brought over between  forty and fifty
I families. This year they are operating
I more extensively, and before the end
1 of the summ t it is expected that the
1 number of  families  will  run. up  to

I labor of love, and nt the present time
the art curator of the university, Mr.
I J.   Purves  Carter,   devotes    a   great
portion of his time to the restoration
and improvement of many works that
have suffered in vurious ways during
the passage of time.   He has brought
to Canada a fund of technical knowl.
edge in art thnt will doubtless place
the collection of Laval under his expert care, in a position of high artistic
efficiency.
In restoring many of the paintings
Mr. Carter has identified works of
unusual vhlue. The majority of these
were brought to Canada liy l'Ahbe
Desjardins, Vicar-Genernl of Paris.
An old catalogu", published in 1852.
has recently been found by the present Rector, I'Abba Gosselin. Thii
stat* that l'Ahbe Desjardins was a
msn of much taste and discrimination who resided in Canada for a
number of years during the French
Revolution. On his return to France.
wl'hlng to testily his gratitude for
the hospitality hi had received, he
forwarded many works ol the most
'.'6*.eeni"d masters, thus forming a
nucleus for the pr.'sent collection.
The painting belonging to the late
Hon. .las. Legare were added some
yenrs ago. nml recently the gnllery
hns hen further enriched by ten
fine copies of celeliruted works in
Ital;an curved frnnrs, the donation
of Mrs. Dnvid Ross. Thess works
have been given special locution in
one of the r ception rooms.
R ulizio.g the great intermit that

R'v. Jesse Gilison. secretary cf the
Upper Canada  Rible   Soei ty,   is   a
clergyman   of   rather    ample' proportion's,  and  good nature,  whose  work
I euuses  him  to occupy  many  pulpit.;
j throughout   the country  siting  forth
] the alms, efforts Bnd progress of (lie
I Biblical organisation.    He has always
prided  himself on  being an optimist
and never   worrying   needlessly.    He
said in a recent discourse thut worry
never    mended    anything���and    this
probably    account*   largely   for   lil*
eheertul disposition.
His faith in his own example and
precept was severely tried a f -w
months ago on the occasion of a visit
to tlie busy thoroughfares of old London. In company with a Methodist
friend, whose guest he was, they were
motoring through Trafalgar square,
every inch of ��;>ace of f that teemin*
section of the great city being filled
w th people, carts, bu&ses, autoni'h
bil-s and other vehicles. Mr. Gibson
could not conceive coming through
the tangled and condensed ma.'s unscathed, but still the car in which
he wns seated sped on. It seemed to
the clerical visitor that if the machine had on another coat ot varnish
there would be a collision sur*. so
narrow was the escape at many
points. He held in as long as possible, f-aring a wreck every mom��nt.
in which he would be a victim. Finally, the wheel* of the automob'ie
came a shade nearer than usual to an,
obstruction. The Canadian emitted,
a lu*ty yell, which somewhat alarmed,
and Irritated the driver, who was propelling his own car
nim one
"Look here
and your outcries are not very reassuring. Why in thunder do you
not practice some of the doe'rin? yon
preached about the other day��� n��t
fo worry?" The jibe w"nt home, the
nervous clerical subsided, and actually came through alive.
