Germany Admiration   of World���Has
Never Urged Policy of War
Upon Her.
Lcr��on, Nov. ff��� Lord Roberts
breaks the silence he bas maintained
since bis famous Manchester speech
by a vigorous letter in the Manchester
Guardian today. He explains he is so
much accustomed to adverse criticism
in his efforts to arouse the nation to
the sense of its unpreparedness for
war as not to resent in any way tht
attacks of his opponents, but nevertheless he feels bound to answer what
he describes as a complete mlscon
struction by tbe Guardian cf the sail
ent passage in his speech.
Utterly Repugnant.
"It is true," he says, "I pointed out
the striking process from which Germany developed from a loose coterie
of petty federated states to a united
empire which arouses1 the admiration
of the world today. But to suggest 1
am urging upon England that It should
be hfer policy first to arm herself better than Germany and then make war
on Germany with or without just
cause or even quarrel simply because
England thinks herself at that
moment able to win a war is a suggestion so strange and so repugnant tc
my mind that I am utterly at a loss to
understand how it could be attributed
to me or elicited from my speech.
Terrible Danger.
"My whole speech wa3 directed, as
are all my efforts, to Impressing upon
my fellow countrymen    the    terrible
danger involved in the situation    in
which we alone    find    ourselves.    A
nation untrained, unprepared, and un
armed amid a Europe in which every
people, not only   the   great   powers,
like Russia, Germany and France, but
the smaller states,   Bulgaria,   Servla,
Greece, Norway,   Sweden   and   Denmark stand as armed nations providing forces, which, while it strengthens

at the back of Beechey Island, where
three graves were discovered.
At Griffith Island the search party

present at the Duart celebration, as
muoh interested as any one. Members of the clan from several cities ol
Canada were present. Toronto was
represented by Mr. W. F. Maclean.
MacLean historians trace the origin
of the clan With precision to the year
1103, A.D., and the family is known
to have been in possession of the Isle
of Mull for some centuries before that.
The flrst Mackenzie snd the first Mnc-
J*an are supposed to have been brothers, and the clans have always been
allies. The earliest record of posses,

Making the ArchSishop  Pay.
Some remarkable facts regarding the
fees extracted from church dignitaries
on   their   translation   from,   says,   a
bishopric to an archbishopric are given by 8ir Henry Lucy in a story ho
tells concerning the famous  Dr.  Magee.    It appears tliat the  latter died
shortly after his translation from the
See   of    Peterborough    to    the   Arch- I
bishopric of York, but he lived long j
enough to pay the fees exacted In con- j
nection   with the  event,   and   it  was
the   fact  that these  amounted  to   no
leaa than $35,000.
Sir Henry says that before 1.1 took j
his seat in  the  House  of  I/irds  the j
new archbishop had to pay in fees an J
aggregate  sum  of close  upon  $4.2M).  |
There  was the Crown Ofiice,  whence
issued the papers relating to the new
appointment; the Home Olice, which
received them and charged accordingly; the  Board of Green  Cloth, whicli
.mulcted  the   archbishop  in  "homage
fees"   amounting   to   $150;   the   Lord
[Great   Chamberlain,   whose   emissary
extracted 850 lrom the archbishop on
his   way   to  take   his   seat;   and   the
Dean  and Chapter, who got lees for
everything and then charged  $105 for
the bellrmger and $70 for the choir.
Next came, with outstretched band,
tho vicar of the parish in which is
situated the cathedral where Uu ceremony ol installation took place. Finally, a lump aum of $140 was exacted
on the hapless archbishop taking his
seat in the House of Lords.
Canada and Triumph, of B. C. Fisheries   Fleet,  Arrive   From
Prince Rupert,  Nov. 6.���After sailing over 16,000 miles, or more than
half around the globe, covering a period of nearly four months, and then to
come very close to losing their ship
a few miles of Its destination, was th'i
experience of Skipper Quinn and his
trusty little crew of eight men on the
steam trawler Canada, which tied up
at the cold storage plant one afternoon last week.
The two steam trawlers, Canada
and Triumph, of the British Columbia FUherles Company, of which Sir
George Doughty, of Grimsby, England, Is the head, left the latter port
on July 12 laat for the waters of
Northern British Columbia. After a
comparatively uneventful voyage,
barring the last two or three days'
experiences, the Canada, as stated
above, tied up at the cold storage
plant here, and the Triumph made
her ultimate destination, Skidegate.
The Canada took on a quantity of
coal, over ninety tons, at Union Bay,
on Vancouver Island, and It loaded
her down to the gunwales, causing her
to be almost unnavlgable in the forty
milea of bad weather between Banks
Island and Skidegate. She made two
or three abortive attempta to make
the passage and had a serious time
of It for some hours, finally deciding
to make for Prince Rupert and unload a portion of her cargo of coal
before proceeding on her way to hfer
home port
The skipper and all hts men are
fishermen, first and foremost, having
done practically nothing else all their
lives. They express tbe greatest satisfaction with everything they have
seen and encountered so far ln their
travels, and are unanimous in stating
their desire to make the province

A Corner In Lifeboats.
There has, so the story is now told,
recently been a corner in ships' lifeboats in England, which seems to have
been very successful. After the di��-
aater to the Titanic, the cry was heard
of "boats for all," and a shrewd
member ol the Baltic, a well known j
ship broker, at once began cornering |
lift-boats. He purchased all the second
hand lileboats he could find, and all 1
tliose which were building. When the I
Atlantic shipping companies were sud- I
den ty laced with the fact that they
wouid have to fit their vessels with
sufficient lifeboats to carry all the passengers and crew, there was a scurry
round to obtain the necessary boats,
and the wily ship broker smiled and
said that he could supply quite a lot
of nicu lileboats at $1,000 apiece
which aame boats had cost him. it is
said $-.Vi ench. As there did not seem
to be any other'source ul supply, the

Ix>rd Roberts' speech upon the un-
prcparcdness of his countrymen has
been ^nlsinterprctod in many quarters.
and, recalling the stand usually taken
by thc Manchester Guardian, it is not
surprising that his words should havo
been twisted so as to convey a meaning for which they were never intended.
Lord Roberts points out thai
Britain stands albne in possessing a
people who are untrained to defend
themselves. Until recently his remark
applied to all the Britains, but today
Canada is the only' one of the great
self governing dominions tliat has not
instituted some form of compulsory
military training.
There are many reasons for this,
chief among them being that other
oversea nations under the British flag
are faced by more threatening conditions, and, perhaps, have been more
four estates of Zlotuiki, Kolbl-amb
Dobska, and Liplenkl, amounting to
over four thousand acres, have received orders to immediately hand
over their land to the German Coloni-
:Uion committee which will parcel It
out to German peasants.
Gendarmes have instructions to turn
the owners out by force, if necessary.
It is supposed that the Prussian government counts on the interest in the
Balkan war to enable it to apply the
bill without exciting the world's notice.
The Poles have met the blow with
quiet fortitude and are boycotting
German trade and commerce in return. The news came as a surprise
to them, as Prussian oppression has
been lightened somewhat for the last,
few nionlhs, public meetings and even
the sale of flowers in aid of Polish
charities being allowed.
As soon as the news spread, meetings of Polish capitalists and land
owners were held and resolutions
passed to withdraw all capital from
German enterprises and help every
Polish undertaking.
Bismarck started the colonization
committee 26 years ago. When one
hundred million marks were voted in
the Prussian diet for the work he said
he hoped that every cent would be
spent by the frivolous Poles at Monte
Carlo. But the frivolous Poles stuck
to their land through th;ck and thin
giving it up only when Prussian gendarmes turned them out at the bayonet point.
Meanwhile, another hundred million
marks has been srent in an effort to
Germanize tbe Poles in Prussia.    Bul

The European situation ia fraught
with world shaking possibilities. The
machinations of Austria may at any
time set the powers at one another's
throats, and should we be involved iu

population would be as powerless to
render aid as would be the people

he frowns, 9hrutrs hfs shoulders.
"This shrug of the shoulders is a
faithful signal, indicating the Prime
Minister's embarrassment. It is something of a writhe, and something of
s wriggle. Whenever he hns to answer a particularly awkward questios
or. refute nn unusually clever argument. Mr. Asquith's shoulders writhe
and shrug and wriggle, nnd th�� action
announces to nil the House that the
Premier is in difficulties.
"Mr. Bonar Law's temperament is
revealed not hy his shoulders hut hy
his hands. He hegijis by placing
them pnlms down on hi3 dispntch
box. He folds them, only to replace
on the hox. The next moment he is
clutching the Inpels of his coat.
"Mr. Bonar Law's mend is n��ver
reflected in his face. Thnt always
remains ns composed nnd noncommittal as the expression of nn expert
poker player, hut when he is possessed by strong emotion Mr. Bonnr Lnw's
hands seem to contain the nerves of
his entire system.

in the House is Mr. Lloyd-George.
Ho is imperious, erratic, impatient,

sometimes sullen in shadow. He haj

Public attention in Melbourne is being directed closely to the situation
in the Pacific ocean. The general
view in political circles is that, as the
Commonwealth naval and land defence schemes develop to maturity
;he responsibility for maintaining the
supremacy of the British flag in the
Western Pacific will rest with Australia.
Deep sympathy is expressed
throughout the country with the relatives of the men who have lost their
lives in the North Lyell Mine, In Tasmania. Many deeds of great heroism are recorded on the part or rescuers and of men who might have
saved themselves, but preferred to aid
their injured .comrades.
Three separate contingents of immigrants arrived in Sydney recently
by the steamers Waimana, Beltana

The spring agricultural outlook in

The elephant's hath takes a week

it costs about $50.
This treatment is neee^ary for a
circus elephant, nnd if the animal
is a valuable one the proprietor of
the eireus does not consider the money wasted. The first process consist*
in going over the immense body with
the hest soap procurable; 150 pounds
of soap is used, and the elephant's
ears are especially carefully attended
When the soaping and drying are
completed the elephant is well sandpapered, and after that rublied all
over with the purest Indian oil until
the mouse-grey skin is supple and
glistening. This last finishing touch
is the most expensive part of the
whole hath, as over $30 has to be

he wa" unused to playing polo on a
bareback pony and had several spills
in consequence. But he was particularly nmused at noting thnt whenever

this remarkable phenomenon was the

Westminster to  Supply One  Team-
Vancouver and Victoria Two
Each���Patrick's Support.
Considerable Interest ls being manifested ln tbe proposal to form an
amateur hockey league which would
take in Vancouver, Victoria and New
Westminster. The scheme ls now under consideration by Lester and Frank
Patrick, and the prospects of the
league being launched ln the near
future are bright.
it Ib planned to have two teams
each trom Vancouver and Victoria,
while the Royal City would supply the
fifth. The league games could be
played on the rinks when the professional teams are away from home.

centres and lf such a scheme is carried out on the coast the time Is not
far distant when Allan cup games

Good Game Should Result at Sapperton���Burnaby's Chances.
Two' games are scheduled in tha
city soccer league for Saturday afternoon. At Sapperton Park tlie Bankers will try conclusions with the Sapperton eleven, last year's champions,
and one of the best games of the season should result.
Three weeks ago the financial boyj
put one over the eastenders by a closa
score, but since then the Sappertonians have been playing great guns, so
that lf the Bankers win out, their victory will be worthy of commendation
and should enhance their chances of
the championship.
The following is the line-up of the
A. H. Marcon, goal; Shildrick and
Stacey, backs; Hamilton, Scott and
Flood, halves; Dawe, Thompson, Murray, Durntord, Pltcairn, forwards. W.

At' Moody Park, Burnaby and the
City will mix matters. On their past
showing Burnaby should annex both
points, but the city boys have
strengthened their eleven to the extent that the question Is yet open. Tim
Mahoney will be in charge.

Every community adapts Itself to Its
necessities, in tbe early days In the
wild west, a borse was nbout the most
valuable thing a mun could possess,
consequently borse thieves, wben
caught, were banged by the neck.
Tbe tales picturing tbe conditions existing In that country ln tbose days-
tales usually written by elderly ladles living tn civilized eastern homes-
were fascinating to youth. They made
tbe boys feel that they would like to
live that kind of a life Just as one
readlug an Imaginative description of
a battle would wish lo be In it. The
real western Ule nnd Hie real battle
are entirely different from these fancy
pictures nud altogether unattractive.
But Johnny I!nice, u city hoy, having reud the dime novels uf his day,
when he came of uge, having fallen
heir to a little money, concluded to go
west, have a look ut tbe country and.
if he liked It. would Invest his legacy
In a stock of goods and set himself up
for a merchant. So Johnny took a train
and was pulled as fur on his Journey
as tbere were locomotives to pull him,
then got Into a singe conch und went
Bs fur as lliul mentis of conveyance
lasted. Not finding anything rough

"Uorue  thief!"  cried  Johnny,  "who
says I'm a boom thief?"
"Oh. bluff won't do you nny good
young feller," suid one of Ills captors,
"witb the boss you stole tied behind
the bouse."
Several homes had been stolen from
the town where Johnny bud "borrowed" his steed, nud wben Eben
i'urker's black gelding was missed
from tbe stable that morning a posse
wns organized to get after whoever
bud perpetrated this last crime, far
ker led thut pnrt of tbe posse whicb
took the right road to secure Johnny,
aud was so indignant over tbe trouble
to which he bud been put that be wus
In favor of meting out tbe customary
punishment for such on offense by Instant hanging of the thief. Tbougb
tbey discussed the matter before Johnny some time elapsed before be got It
tbrough his thick skull tbnt bis life
was in danger, liis captors wrangled
over the matter, some ot them averring
thm they hud better deluy the bunging
long enough to give Johnny nn opportunity to Implicate those who bud
taken the other horses tbnt bad been
stolen: but tlte.v were overruled nnd
after n lengthy debute tliey led the culprit out tor the purpose of raising
hlm nt tbe end of a rope the other end
of which had been thrown over the
limb of n tree. Johnny, who, by tbls
time hod begun to realize wbut was
taking place, turned white, bis kuees
knocked together, and he bad to be
dragged along.
"Whar's my boss gone to7" exclaimed Ehen i'arker wben tbe party got
outside the bouse.
True enongb, tbe beast hsd disappeared again. Tbe men were dum-

There weren't many horses In tbe

Harm Dandruff Doe*.
Dandruff has cume to be rucb a common disease tbat many of us lose sight
of the barm it works until tbe real
harm ls done. It causes tbe balr to
become dry and lusterless and by
clinging to tbe clothing gives tbe appearance of uncleanllness.
One of tbe chief causes of dandruff
ts weakness of tbe scalp, caused by
Infectious diseases. Pressure of heavy
or close bats on tbo beud Is another
common cmmc. while tbe practice ot
matting tbe balr close to the scalp Is
a well known promoter of tbe disease.
Hair oils snd dyes used to excess Invariably cause malignant dandruff.
If yon (Ind your acalp Is becoming
affected make baste to discover lf one
of these prevalent practices Is not
bringing about a condition you will
find great difficulty ln overcoming.
First of all. keep the scalp perfectly
clean. Shampoos containing yolks of
eggs, witb chloroform, borax (with or
without rnmpbor), carbolic add. soda
and chlorate of potash are recommended for dandruff.
Add to tbe yolk of an egg ten drops
of chloroform and beat witb an egg
beater to a stiff froth. Rub tbe size of
a black walnut of this remedy Into the
roots of the balr, tben wasb It well
with a good soap Dry quickly with
a soft towel, and you wlll Und tbe
remedy most efficacious.
A tendency to gray hair Is often he-
red I tary-that Is to sny, tn certain families tbere seems to be a lack of tbe
pigment wblcb gives the buir Its natural color. Tbls deficiency tn such cases
sometimes makes itself apparent lu
early life and cannot be prevented.
Other people notice gray hairs, for the
flrst time after some illness or otber
loss of tbeir normal vitality, and tn
sucb cases there ts rarely any restoration of the natural color.
Sudden or severe mental disturbance
nny sometimes produce grny hair, and
i the mental worry be very quickly
removed nnd the general health has
not suffered there may be s chance of
the balr regaining Its original color.
Chocolate and tht Tetth.
A box of chocolates and a mnttnee
ticket constitute happiness for a grent
many girls ot today. If the play Is
good the matinee ticket Is n real benefit, whicb ts more than can be said for
the chocolate.
There is always a temptation In a
mellifluent layer of rich hrown goodies
holding all manner of delicious surprises lienealh tlieir glossy coats. Ho
strong Is this temptation that the girl
who neglects tier dentist throws discretion to the winds, knowing full well
the price of her Indulgence will be
aching teeth aud a disgruntled digestion.
A fatuous authority who recently declared "chocolate can only do harm. In
common with all good foods, when eaten to excess" seems to Ignore tht view
generally taken liy the dentnl profes
alon that chocolate. Ilka otber sweetmeats, does a vast amount of harm to
the teeth, at least when eaten, even
In small amounts, at tbe wrong time-
that Is. between meals or before going
to bed.
Unfortunately It ls st these times
that chocolate generally Is eaten. If
It were always taken toward tbe end
of a meal, followed by a detergent food
���tuff, such as fresb fruit, wbat Is claim
��d for It would no doubt be trua
Unfortunately we like to nibble on
chocolate over our books and inugn
sloes or In idle moments sucb as com*
to us at odd hours of the day. A thorough cleansing and sterilizing ot lh*
mouth and teeth will do much to coun
teract the harmful affects of chocolate

"Henna ns a substitute for beef." Tbey

because tbey don't cost much. Let
some wily trust magnate create a corner In beans and send tbe quotations

There are mnny varieties of beans.

than utber vegetables, and ln the dried
forms they approach beet. According

We ALL advertise.
A man advertises his character by his
deeds, his wisdom by his words or by his
silence. A merchant's store, stock, and windows speak either well or ill of his business.
So when a man says "No, I do not advertise," he knows not what he says. What
he really means is that he does not publish
printed advertisements.
Some proclaim this aa thongh It
were a virtue���yet spend much effort
aad Invest much money In advertising tbeir buslnesa through mediums
other than the printed word.
They may make their wares fit for
a king���yet hesitate to introduce them
to Brown or-Smith.
This is Inconsistency.
The truth Is, printed advertising ts
s vital force in EVERY business, Just
as Is the; "silent" advertising of a
product's quality or a merchant's service.
When you employ the Printed Word
as your solicitor in the Court ot Pub
lic Opinion, you build good will for
your product or service���a good will
that results ln profit
If unrepresented at this Court, your
Interests are ss unprotected As though
when Involved in a lawsuit, you failed to "enter an appearance" add tbe
oase Is decided against you���by default.
So lt Is clear that yon pay tor advertising���one way or the other, it
you pay lt wages lt will work FOR
If you refuse Its offers of service,
It will work AGAINST you; tn just
the measure of Its employment by
your competitors.

So you ARE paying for advertising either
out of your profits or by your losses.
Are you losing by not advertising in Tbe
