IS NEED FOR BETTER
KNOWLEDGE Of BIBLE
Recently Arrived Preacher Discourses
on Man's Portion in Lffe
of World.
The time honored custom of the
Synod of British^ Columbia furnishing
the preaching staff at the church
wheie the Synod was held the Sun lay
following Its sessions, waa carfted
out yesterday, the retiring moderator,
Rev. J. S. Henderson, being iclleved
from his oratorical efforts for one day,
his place being taken by Rev. Mr.
Dunn, assistant pastor of St. Andrew's
Presbyterian church, Vau��juver, at
the morning service, while Rev. Mr.
Logey, of Nelson, occupied the pulpit
last evening.
Mr. Logey is a recent arrival in
British Columbia, coming from Sudbury. Ont., a few months ago. The
preacher took for his text. Acts, ninth
chapter, sixth verse, "And he, trembling and ashamed, said Lord, what
wouldst Thou have mc do ?"
In the course of an excellent sermon, he said ln part: Some of us
are on the threshold of life, eome of
us are flghting the battles ef life.
There comes to us. at one time in our
lives, whether it be early or late, a
desire of a life place. It came to St.
Paul, and hc saw that he was fitted
for a special place. A double minded
man Is always weak. Is like a ship
without a rKlder drifting on the
waves cf the sea helplessly. It is
essential to have a purtose, a name
and a nlace. A man fresh from the
forest, comes into this city; can he
play an organ which perhaps he has
never seen before ? No. But take
an organist, who Is' fitted for such
work, he can I ring out of the Instrument, the sweet sounds of harmony,
the most beautiful music.
What Is our portion ln life ? Some
want wealth, large material possessions.' Do not misunde:Bti:nd me. I
believe thee is a gcod deal of wieng
i reached from our pulpits denounc
ing those who see'< possessions. There
is nothing said agalnsl it In the Bibir
lf a man accumulates it honestly. God
docs not re-nire our services in a
sense th;:t he eould not do without
us. If God calls any of us we ca::
i of us a, but the work would eo on an',
v.e VOUld be the leser not He. There
ia a lamentable Ignorance s'.iown' in
thia world of the teachings of thc
Bible. The sooner the people acquaint
themselves with the store of knowledge la thb valuable boo'; the ootter
it will be for them.

of $2,275,000 voted by congress for the
building of the Lake Washington canal lo;k at Salmon bay, It was an
nounced at the office of Ma]. D. J.
Cavanaugh,   Unltel   States   engineer,
South Vancouver, May 5.���The
local police have as yet failed to apprehend Mr. Spencer Robinson, ex-
chairman of the South Vancouver
school board, for whom a warrant has
been issued on a charge of forging
the signature of the school architect,
Mr. J. H. Bowman.
Telegrams describing Mr. Robinson's appearance have been sent
broadcast by Chief of Police Jackson
to all the police authorities on the
coast and as far inland as Calgary.
This latest exjosure of alleged de-
screpandes, following Robinson's recent aqtilttal has caused a sensation
ln the municipality, and the affair Is
being tall:ed of by all sections of the
public.
Tlie o<Ticlal description of Robinson
telegraphed by the police to various
pollce forces in Canada and ln the
United States is as follows: "Red
hair, red moustache, height 5 feet C
inches, weight 150 pounds, a^ed Sti:
complexion fresh; brown suit, toft
felt hat."
Mr. Spencer Robinson ls of EngliEb
extraction. Up till some time las*
year he held tiie joint offices of assessor of the South Vancouver munl-
clrality and chairmanship of the bear:
of school trustees. He resigned from
the former pest and devoted his time
at the public disposal solely to school
matters. During the municipal elec
tlons in January last he successfully
contested ward oi'e against Mr. J. B.
Todrlck, who had represented (hJf
war! for se.eral years.
iMr.  ftobinron sat uron the counci
z'.U quite recently when he was c.r
c:tej cn a charge of graft in connection with the buying of a school
site. At the hearing of thia pre.'er-
ment Po'ice Magistrate McArthur ln
a somewhat unusual manner expressed his belief In Mr. Robinson's ln-
fjocence. At the speedy trial h'.y .fejfc
fere Tils Honor Judge Mclnnes ln
Vancouver. Mr. Robinson was honor-1
ably discharged.

ARE ON TRAIL
Search for Indian   Outlaws
Now Concentrates on
Kelly's Lake
Chief Campbell Takes Charge���Indian
Trackers Hasten to Scene���
Encounter Expected.
Ashcroft, B.C., May 5.���News from
the scene of action ln connection
with the pursuit of the Indian outlaws, Moses Paul and Paul Spi.itlum,
who s'jot and killed Constable Kindness during the performance of hls
duties at Clinton are very meagre.
Acting on Instructions from Vlctoila
Provincial Chief of Police Colin
Campbell left Ashcroft this morning
and proceeded to Clinton by automobile, accompanied by about ten
armed deputies who are experienced
in a case of this kind, and Chief
Tracker Fernie, from Kamloops, with
eight experienced Indian trackers,
also hastened to the scene of tbe
murder. Definite news is expected
momentarily that both desperadoes
have either been captured or shot
dead in their efforts to escape.
Authentic Information has come to
han.l that a trail has been picked up
leading to a flace known as Kelly's
Lake, towards which point the searchers are concentrating. This lake lies
in a deep valley in a direct line
twelve miles west from Clinton and
about foui teen miles from the spo!
where the crime was committed, and
the environs are very mountainous.
The difficulty of tracing or pursuing
a fugitive in this vicinity is very
marked. Beyond this lake is a vallc
known as the Eig Slide valley where
a-large quartz mine was operated several years ago. This valley which
reaches to the Fraser has no outlet
but by way of Kelly's la":e. The only
other nitons cf o- it Is by way of the
Fraser river, and this stream woult"

On Wednesday, Decs. 20, It grew

the Guillemot experienced some of
tbe worst weather that eves the Bay

They had the evideace of a seaman
named Oliver, who throughout conducted himself in the most courageous manner, that he-beard the master

The eame sea also lifted the starboard lifeboat out ot ita chocks and
dropped lt on the stealing rods connecting the wheel on tba bridge with

SLAVING IN NIGERIA.
Wiles of Traders Nullified by British
Agents.
. Late one  afternoon  a  lanre  caime
from  up-river  came  slowly  alongside
and made fast.   In it were a man. a
woman, a lad, and a small child.
The man and the lad were working
the canoe, anil as they came up, tlie
man shouted some order to th ) lad ut
t!ie stern. He repeated it more than
once, an.l the lad at each repetition,
started some new act. It struck nie
a3 curious that the lad failed to understand what was said to him.
I recognized the languag in which
the man spoke as bein;; Nupe. He
told me that lie was a Nupe, ar.d that
the woman was his wife, mother of
the lad and 'f the wee girl,
As neither he nor his wife could
make any sort of conversation witli
either of the children, though these
talked freely one to the other, it was
reasonably clear that the claim to he
'.heir ptrents was to be accep'ted in
tlie Pickwickian sense only.
My own interpreter, a worthy fellow with command of seven languages,
could do nothing with them. Amateur
interpreters, speaking all manner of
curious dialects, tried, without success, to interest the "pikhins."
Ultimately, a woman was found in
the native town who was able to talk
tlieir language, and then all was
plain sailing. They cann from a pagan district a cfluple ol hundred miles
or more above Rama, on the river,
and, owing to famine had heen sold
for three hags of corn to the canoe-
man and his wife three weeks before
we met.
Later on, they were returned to
their people, Ere that, they appeared
in court t ��� testify against their purchasers, These were convicted, and
are at this present time engaged in
building operations on his Majesty's
behalf at no great distance from
Rama.���World's Work.

WONDERS OF THE YOSEMITE,

It was lu tin1 middle years of the
last century that the eyes of a white

of which Dr. Bunnell was a member,

of Indians, wlio hud Been giving great
trouble to gold miners, prospectors
nnd setters. On the 21st of Mnrch
they entered the valley, bplng, so far
ns known, the tlrst white men to obtain n near view of its sublime cliffs
nud wouderftil waterfalls, although a
Captain Walker, wltb several companions, had crossed the Sierras and looked down Into the valley shortly before.
Dr. Bunnell quickly recognized In tbe
giant cliff, now called Bl Capltan. tbe
towering rock that had attracted bis
nttentlon the year before, although he
had then viewed It from a point fully
forty miles away.
[���'our years later the first party of
tourists visited the valley, arriving in

wrote a description of it for the Mariposa Gazette, which was widely copied

peaks, is now considered as best fulfilling the couditious described In

ROUND THE MESS TABLE
BY THE  MARTIAN.
I am'glaJ to see tbat there is a many considered that they were the
movement on foot in the city to form best companies in the regiment, the/
an association for ex-military and ex-, were certainly the strongest, an.1 of
naval men of all branches. Tnis 13,' better physique than the heidquarter
undoubtedly, a thing that shoul 1 ex-! men;  befoie that when we had artl
ist in every city in the Emyire, and
in fact, is to be found in most of tli 3
larger ones. Once a man has soldiered, or sailored, there U no doubt that
he will always mlss the "camaraderie" and si lilt of mutual friendship and help that I3 so pronounced
ln both services. Regiments or ship*
are Just like big families, an' only
those w|jo have spent a number of
years in either, know wbat a "soros-
tliing lacking" there is about civic
life afterwards. An association of
that kind, tends to replace lt toe certain extent, and should do an immense amount of good. Through its
medium all discharged soldiers and
sailors, militiamen and volunteers,
couU get to know each other, and
help eich other, an.l lf a room can ba
���taken and fitted up, where we can get
tog..ther and have a good "grouse" at
things ln general, why so much the
betttr
Another Idea, arising out of the
same movement i.s the enrolling of
memhers of the association into the
National Rete.'VBj a corps recently
raised in Great Bi itain, a description
of which appeared in Saturday's
Issue of tlie Westminster Dally News.
New Westminster is the first city of
the Dominion to enter upon an effort
to support the National Reserve
movement, and all honor to the Royal
Cltv on that account.
The idea ls simply registration, and
no liability whatever is involved. It
Is defl ed to obtain an.l L��ep on record the nimes and addresses of ai
many trained fighting men ai is possible, in order that ln the case of a
natin-al emergency arising, calling
for the embodiment of all available
refe ves, there may be on hand, a
list of those whose nervines wonld be
mest deEiied. The idea Is good anl
deserving of all support, and once
Mors I may say. the fact that New
Westminster leads the way In this
movement shows that she ls not quit 1
so oblivious to her military obligations
as th? pare-s of neighboring cities
seem to think, j'.idglns; from some o:'
the artie'ea we hard lately read.
A tood work, quiet anl unosten-
tat'ous, is being canied out by certain
membtr3 of lh�� 18th Field Ambulance, Canadian Army Medical Corps,
o.' Xancou'.c". Being fortunately toi-
sesf e 1 of many musical members, several oi' whom aie old "pros.," the
corps har. undertaken the endowment cf a ward In St. Paul's Ho-plta
to help meet with the ever-gro.vin;
member of applications for admission
To this enl they bave organized
themselves into a philharmonic society and ure giving -concerts ln vari-
0U3 of the coast towns and cities. II
Is unde stcod that t-iey have a booking for the Opera Hous?, Nev Westminster, and se.Mng that tlve mllitli
boys of Vancouver are giving their
services to such a deserving object,
apart f.om the fact that tliey put on
a really first-class show, 1 br>Pe that
they will meet with all t'ne support
possible in this citj". I believe that
the hospital is remitting with an offer to the 18th to alio* their member' to graduate in the technical
branch of their vork at tlie hospital,
thei e iy learning in practice what
tou'd only be taught by theory In the
diill tall. This is the sort of spirt
that go's to make an efficient corps
and it is hard to sav whether Major
Mel a'ish, or the directors of the hospital, are to be congiatulated   most.
lery thera is no doubt fiat we had
the hest, not only in the regiment bu:
in the Dominion of Canala, as was
proved by the winning of certain
open competitions. If the city could
do that when Its population was les-.
1han a half of what it is now, lt
seems strange that conditions are no
better at piesent, an.l I cannot help
thinking that some difficulty or grievance must exist which only needs being brought to light in order to be
rectified by those responsible for the
welfare of the regiment, What has
been done once can he done again
and there is absolutely no reason why
this city should nat possess ln the
future as fine a body of miil:iamen a-:
she did In the past. It ls only the
start that Is needed, lt Is hard to
arouse people's interest in a thing
which ls as far as they are concerned, a chimera. There must be tome-
thing tangible, something to be seen
before any eTort can be expects:
from the civilians, but I have no
doubt that If the 10-lth only make sufficient progress to bilng themselves
Into evidence to any recognizable degree, that that part of the population which Is so unfortunate as to be
iinab'e to enlist, will do iheir utmos'
to heln things along and make a regiment In the Roval City of which no
only we, but the whole of Canada
may te proud. It is not too ambltiouc
a task, the men are here many already proven, there are men to lead
also, and all that is needel is a littl"
go-ahead sjirlt on the part of those
administrating, whole-hearted support
on the 1 art or the rank anl file and
the good-will and assistance of every
right-thinking citizen In New Westminster.
CRUELTIES    PASSING    AWAY.
The 101th Regiment paraded at the
drill hall on Thursday evening as
usinl There were about six men
and a co.or sergeant present. II
would be Interesting to know the
reason of theso small attendances,
whether the fault lies with the of
fleers the non-commissioned ranks,
tho men, or their conditions of aJr-
vice. I am rather inclined to think
the latter ll the main cause, as bj
doubt, the camp in June works a
great lar'ship on many oa account 0
loss of wa' es or ;os i dy employment attendant on lt, a; was the cas;
with sc.eral last year. Cut a'l d's-
ea8es have tbclr remedies, and I hop
thnt tcfore lon1: those of the 1o4t'
will be curei, an.l the regiment will
have become a source of pride for a'l
ot us. 1 would be very glad to hear
from any of my fil?nds no,v serving,
or who havo previously served ai ti
what they consider to be amiss and
what rcmedv they wo ild apply.. There
Is n< t'-.lng like getting to the root of
trouble, an.l those who are most
deeply concerned are naturally the
one* to know best when anything ls
wrong.
One thing we can be sure of Is
that there ls no lack of men ln the
clt:;. One could walk down Columbia
atreet at any time of the day and
pick out dozens who have obviously
aerved cither ln the Regulars or Mil-
tla and if properlv approached most
of these would willingly re-enllst, but
at the same time there has g it to hi
some inducement In the shape of
entertainments, athletics, etc., to prevent the di Ills from becoming too
wearisome. We have already seen
what the 104th ean do In tlie later;
two very exce lent boxln? an.l wrest-
llne tournevs were held at the drill
hall, In which members of the regiment gained a goodly share of the
honois, but conspicuous only by ite absence was the scarlet uniform
amon ,11 the spectators. Surely
there should have been several ener
getlc non-coms, louiidlir, up tecrults
on an occasion H'toithat ?
I have often heard t'ie complaint
made that the city take3 no Interest
In the militia. That Is probably so. 1
don't supjoee thc majority of the citizens are e* en aware that we hnve a
regiment here, but whose fault Is
that? Everybody knows that the Salvation Army are here because they
mako themselves heard; everyone
���would know the 104th are here lf
they would only let themselves bo
seen.
When wp had A and B Companies
of the Sixth Regiment  In this city,
each other in the bush, and sometimes by a .jougli swaying up and
down across the water we knew that
monkeys were having a game ther s.
Then our men would sit very still and
ouiet until one of them with a gun
would kill his victim. As soon as the
body fell all the men would give a
uec^ groan and then plunge over-
hoard to swim for the dead monkey,
leaving me alone in a canoe tipping
up an:l down dangerously
"The natives may almost be said to
speak tie monkey language. At isast,
they know the meaning of various
cries and can imitate them j ei fcetly.
One day when there were monkeys
11 sight and the men wanted a dinne ���
one of them squatted down an.l, putting his fingers to his nostrils, mido
peculiar beastlike crlrs like a femab
monkey calling for her comrades.
Sure enough, after a little whi'e t.vo
monkeys approachel in answer ta thj
call."

In their barbarism and ln their slav-

Mr. Harris, rals'ng them out of their
misery and giving them a new hope ln

"Below the Mohammedan bet,"
says Mr. Harris, "pagnnlsm Is breaking up and the Chrlstlin missions���
of all denominations���are doing splendid work."
Catholic Missions  Praised.
Both Mr. anl Mrs. Hants bear testimony to the wonderful results of the
Catholic missions tn the French an<]
German Congo, where thn people arc
being taught not only Ch Istian ethics
but also handcrafts and, trades and
elementary education, which prevent-;
them from slipping back to barbarism,
because they have no work be--ond
that of slaves. At hdmes tn Togo
land, tor Instance, there Is n wonderful mission where the people are
taught tailoring, engineering, carpentry, bootmaklng, and other trades,
which they practice with as great a
Skill as European workers.
Mrs. Harrison mentioned that she
found people making evening dress
suits tn the district for rich black
gentlemen who live in European
style.
���'With regard to Industrial progress," said Mr. Harrison, "the Catholic missions are far In advance of tbe
Protestant missions.'
Natives Know Monkey L-nguage.
Mr. and Mrs. Harris traveled for
the greater part of their lonir tourneys

They suffered manv hardships.
The trackers fed largely upon f"Ult

THE DIFFERENCE.
Leaving t^ie British Isles out of the
question, it inay bo said that the re-
maindor of what is known as the Hrlt-
ishish Kmpire is made up of two
classes of elates. On tbe one hand
are the great democracies such as our
own Dominion or the commonwealths
of the southern hemisphere; on thc
other is the Indian Kmpire and the
countless other vast and Important
crown colours and dependencies, all
of which look more or less to the
India and Colonial office in London
for direction and advice.
The first class govern themselves;
the latter arc governed.
It follows .then that tho people of
the great self governing democracies
are of a nature differing from those
of thc lands which    hnve    not    yet

The inhabitants of the former class
are for the most part the descendants
of people of British stock who have
carried with them overseas the
Anglo-Saxon forms of government,

the people to order matters for the

of British or European stock are in
the minority, and. but for the fact
that they hold the upper hand, would
be an indiatingnishahte item in the
\ast colored populations whose des
tinies they order. But the majority
of the peoples of these lands do nol
eject, their representatives :ind ��!�����
They are ruled by men or thc same (
race at, those composlD
democracies.
It follows also that the status both
of wtdte and colored races varies
according to thc part of the empire
in which members of tliem may be.
ln Central Africa, for instance, the
white man is a veritable autocrat.
Iiet it bo said again that���he rules.
His word is law, the native pays him
that respect which, as matters now
stand, it is good that he should pay.
Or again in the Indian Kmpire and in
Egypt we find a solitary white man
directing affairs touching the welfare
of thousands with success. He is
practically an autocrat, and is respected as such���and as a rule also looked
np to as a man.
Tmnsportattooi, that magician's
wand .hat iI3k .-co; ltd the wildernesses aud *tvt\ the Jealously guarded
weallh of the Tir oT mine, has also
played hav-ob ,vit!t the systems which
until Its ie^lcctin-, kMl worked sufficiently w��d Today and for some
time tast vaicying numbers of the
ruled of one portion of the empire
have found their way to ono or other
of thp great seir governing dominions,
have claimed their right.-) as British
subjects, and bave created the m >st
dclinle of questions for which, up
to the ircrent, no aatlsfactory remedy
has bees applied.
in :.;o;ith Africa the agitation ol
tho Kritisn Indians will be readil)
recalled. Today in our own country
lhe i r idiom prevents itself. Perhaps

Has   Many   Advantagss��� Much   Wastage in Canada.
Natural gas has many advantage;
ub fuel and as a source of power. It
is cheap, efficient, clean, ancl it is
easilv transported for use ia the vlc-
Inlty cf tho fields. By reason of its
unstable and fugitive nature, however,
it has frequently been recklessly
wasted, hoth in Canada and tbe Dni-I
tei States, says Conservation. j
Th? most valuable uses for natural,
gas are for the development of power
and fc domestic purposes.   It is esti i
mated that with gas at 12 cents per,
thousand,  electric  power  can be de-j
velope 1 a3 cheaply as it can be generated by water power at Niagara. Ip ;

vicinity, in Alberta,   The cost of this
gas.   as   sold,   vai ies  from   10   to   40
cents per one thousand cubic feet in
Ontario,  to about five csnts per one
thousand  cubic feet   iin quantity)  inl
Albeita.     It follows,   therefore,    that
electric poWrr can le generate' In a,
portion   of   Alberta   at    cne-half  the,
cost at Niagara. |
Tiie history of the natural  gas in,
Canada  has  been  similar to Ihit Inl
the l'nited States.   In both countries, j
its   discovery    has,   in    nearly  every'
case,   been   incidental   to. tbe   searetl
tor oil ��nd haB been at first regarded j
S3 a nuisance by the oil driller.   For
the   great I many eirs In the exploitation of ths
great  Appalachian oil fields in Pennsylvania   and  West    Vir; i:iia,  it   was j
permitted to go to waste until 1 s rn-1
ormous industrial value was discovered.   Now, however, the gas is use 1
to furnish fuel and power to the many .
industrial  establishire'i'.a  of  Western I
Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio.     lni
1SS5-U   the   great   gas   fields   of  Ohio
and Indiana were discovered, and the
same disgraceful history was rereat-1
ed.    A  few   years  later  the   Kansas-
Okiakoma fields were discovered, and
tliere   tha   same   history   was,    in   a
measure, rep'ea el, although the value t
of the gas was more promptly apprr- j
elate 1 nnd the industrial envelopment j
vas corresponding  mor^ rapid.
Let us see  wbat history  lias be:'n j
in Canada, and note what sho ild be]
donr> in order to prevent the waste of
s;;ch a valuable   natural  resource.
In the past, enormous quantities o'
natural gas have been waste:l, both
in Eastern aud Western Canada, in
a gas field, a careless driller may
cither lose comrol of the well through
carelessness or Ignorance, or abandon t'-o same without plugging it
Not onlv is his own property destroyed In this wa'-, bit the surrounding area is also drained, thus Injuring the entire community through the
negligence of a single individual. His
acts thus become a matter of public
concern and a r'oper fleld for legislative control The Province of <m-|
tarlo has reluced the waste of na-1
tural gas to a minimum by causing all j
abandoned wells to be plugged, and
by levying -t tax of two cents p->r I
thousand lei t, with a re'.a'e of 90
per cenl v.ho:, the gas is used In Can
aila.
Large quantities or gag, with oi1,

THAT
MAN
KERR"
Yesterday a man listed with me three lots situated on the corner of Royal avenue, Dufferin and Alice streets.
I know these lots are worth $13,000 or $14,000. He could demand that much and get it too.
Now this gentleman is oinched for money and for personal reasons he has to leave town within the next three days. He made me
this proposition: He said that if I would sell the property for him
within that time that he would let it go for $10,000.
Think of it! Three of the best corners in the city of New
Westminster for $10,000.
To show you how much I tfiink of it I will arrange a loan of
$7000 on the property, for anyone who wishes to purchase it. You
can arrange to pay the $7000 to suit yourself.
Then for $3000 you can have three of the best corners in the
most promising city in Canada. It is opportunity knocking at your
doors.   Are you going to answer ?
You'll Never Have a Chance Like This Again
Here is a description of the lots:
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-
eight feet on Alice Street. Cleared, with large eight roomed thoroughly modern house, with full sized cement basement, cement
floor, furnace, fire-place, etc.; about thirty fruit trees on property;
excellent apartment house site, facing on the car-line; good magnificent view of Fraser river; only a few minutes walk to Post
Office. Price for THREE DAYS ONLY FOR THE THREE LOTS

DEADLY WOOD TICHS BITE.
Spinal Meningitis Said to Be Directly
Traceable to These In3eces.
Nelson, May 5. ��� Considerable
alarm ha3 followed the statement by
J. William Cockle a well known Kootenay entomologist, that wood ticks,
which abound ia British Columbia,
carry germs which cause spinal meningitis and berl berl, and that the bite
of the insects is frequently fatal.
Interviewed tonight Dr. W. O. Ros?,
a leading physician, eaid that this
was well known to members of the
medical profession both In the province and in Montana thirteen >ears
ago. Dr. Host' stated that he had had
four cases of spinal menlnci is direct.
Iy traceable to bites from wood
ticks, and that two of these cases
were fatal. Bites on the nai e of the
neck cause spinal meningitis, and
thos* on other parts of bodv- are frequently responsible for dangerous
local diseases. Interest In the subject is great locally on account of thej
death a few days ago from spinal
meningitis of the Robley child. I

Victoria Wests Proved Better Team
in First Game of Series.
Tiie people of Coquitlam ma;le a
general holiday on Saturday, the occasion being the first soccer game of
the set ies between their idols, the
champions of the senior amateurs,
and tlie Victoria Wesis, the premier
team of Vancouver Island, for the
i.ossession of the McBiide shield,
emblematic of the championship of
the province. The result was a win
for the visitors by 1-0. Previous to
tho game, a brass band discoursed
popular music to tlie large assembly
gathered to cheer their team on to
victory.
Dnvo Leith handled the whistle and
on kicking off the Ranchers attacked
the Victoria goal only to meet with
a near perfect defence by the sturdy
hacks, who kicked oat of touch when
danger threatened their goal. Half
way through the first half the Capitals
got Into tlieir swing, their right forward wing being a puzzle to the Coquitlam defence. Soon after resumption of play the Victorias went ahead
with a shot that Worrall had no
chance to save. This ended the scoring.
Worrall, the Coqultlnm goaltender,
ls in a class by himself in this province. He hails from Sunderlanl
having played on the famous soccer
team of that city in the English flrst
division.
Coquitlam meets the Victorias on
the latter's groun.'s at the Island City
next Saturday, the total number of
goals scored on the two games will
determine the winners. The Ranchers
will liave to show a decided improvement ln form If they would retain
any hopes of winning the trophy, as
their opponents api.ear to be the
best in the field among the amateurs
o��thi�� province.

Salmon Bellies Mix It in Game Among
Themselves.
With the fitBt game two weeks
away, the Salmon Bellies are conceded by all those lacrosse sports-
who have witnessed the gruelling
games in the past, to be in the best
share a local team lias ever been in
before the opening of tho season.
The Queens park oval on Saturdav
afternoon was the scene of the firs'
real workout of the team, fourteen
players turning out in uniform, the
defence playing against the home.
There were on the one side Bun
Clarke, Tommy GitTord, Johnny H(/;-
ard, Jimmy Gilford, Tom Rennie
George Rennie, Hugttile Gifford, and
on the other, McCarty, BUI Turnbull,
Pat Feeney, Punk Wintemute, Clltt
Spring, Len Turnbull and Grumpy
Spring.
Manager Gray acted in the capacity
of re fc ice. but about all he did was
to face off the ball, leaving the penalizing work to the officials to be appointed later, by the commission. The
speed displayed was amazing to the
wiseacres on the fence, the opposing
players mixing it in great style.
Harry Hyland is the only one left
to complete the roster, and he Is expected to arrive In the city any day.
With his work ln the hockey world
during the past winter, It is thought
that but little practice will be necessary to bring the former Shamrock
player into mlsseason form. Manager
Gray announces no let-up in training
during the next two weeks and is
confident that the Royals wlll not only
win the opening game, hut will gO
through the season with a record unequalled by any former team which
has represented this city.

A "Pipe" Dream.
"There is one slmrly wonderful
thing about our two Cubans, Marsans
and Almeida," savs lnflelder Dfck
Egan of the Cincinnati Reds. "Both
o! them can take a shower bath and
Bmoke a pipe at the same Ume.
What's more, the pire wen't go out,
and you can see lt tlickerfng gayly
amid the strongest torrents of the
water. I don't know haw they do it,
but I' 1 like to. lt must be a wonderful comfort to he able to smoke
while you are under water. Another
strange thing about the Cubans:
When they dress after a game, tbey
always put their hats on flrst. They
take their baths: then solemnly put
on their lids, and there they are, pip?
in mouth and hat on head. They
get their shirts on ov^r their heads
without taking off their boanet3. Believe me. they are some magicians,
those fellows, and their skill Is beyond Imitation."���Sporting Life.
THE   OLD   BRIDGE   ON
THE   CARIBOO   TRAIL
(By BILL UNO.)
Wasted away are its timbers,
And rusted its bands ot steel.
No more will lta proud  old pathway
Thrill 'neath the packer's heel.
Back at the white man's coming
Its strong new cables swung,
And many the sturdy miner
It bore with hope still young.
Bore to a land of promise,
Bright with the lure of gol.l;
Gold that might cure heart longings,
And- cheer when the heart   grows
old.
Long was the march and weary,
But vigor and hope pressed on,
Marching and tolling and hoping;
Awake and away ere tbe dawn.
Some in that pulsing army
Returned with hope still high,
And   some   with   laggard   footsteps;
And some laid' clown to die.
And all are slowly dropping
Like old planks in the stream
That restless ever surees,
With swell, and swirl, and gleam.
But the good old bridge still lingers
With its weathered rusty stays,
Recalling to us the heroes
'   That came in the. early days.

A  MADE OVER  STATUE.
CONFIDENT AERONAUT.
Designed to Pots as ��� King, It Now
Represents a Saint.
The most made over statue In the
-world is in a quaint little church at
Yarmouth, Isle of Wight. It wus originally designed for thut of Louis XIV.
of France and was the work of a Roman sculptor wbo started for France
with the statue, but was captured on
the way by an English warship.
France and England were then nt war.
nnd tbe bos containing tbe statue was
taken on board tbe English vessel with
other spoils.
When Sir Richard Holmes, the English commander, examined it nnd found
tbe head was unfinished he ordered the
sculptor to complete It in his own
likeness, and so the heroic figure that
wns intended to represent a French
monarch was turned Into an oilicer of
tlie English navy.
When Sir Richard'was mnde gnvcr-
nor of tbe Isle or Wight III HiliT be
presented the statue of himself to the
Yarmouth cburcb. Half a century
after bis (^eatb a stutue of St. .lobn
wns desired for n certain niche In tbe
cburcb. and an English sculptor wns
called In to chisel out tbe face nnd
nuvnl hat of Sir Richard nud mnke
tbem over Into tbe benign features und
fiowlsg locks of the snlnt.
Tbe Incongruity of court clothes nnd
n Jeweled chain on the figure of,one
of the apostles did not seem to strike
the worshipers its anything unusual,
und Si. John still occupies his place by
the nitar attired in tlie finery of a
French king ���New Vork Press.

Harper's Weekly.
Dr.  Gans of Munich   Is Certain   Ht
Can   Cross   the   Atlantic.
Dr. Paul F. Gans of Munich. Germany, proposes a transatlantic flight
in a dirigible balloon sometime next
March. If the plans succeed, the doctor expects to makefile air passage in
five days. Dr. Gans believes he is in n
position to avoid the mistakes of Wei!,
man. Vaniman and others, who chose
impossible routes for their (light*. Dr
Gans proposes to tHke advantage of
the trade winds from, the northwest
from Teneriffe, Canary Islands, ami
; thinks lie has h booH chance in -this
i Way tit reaching the West Indies. He
proposes, to end his (light at Barbados
if necessary, but if possible to con-
tinue it to the coast of Florida.
This route was chosen only after
an investigation extending through
years. He found that at the period of
the vear he lias selected the trade
wind is practically undisturbed by adverse currents. The records shov'tliat
all the hurricanes, numbering 181,
between 1680 snd 19T.9, were in the
months of June. July, August, September nnd October.
Dr. Gons figures that the cost of
tae trip, ehould it be mad:, will he ap.
proximately $135,000. It took $70,000
to build his dirigible, known as the
Suchard, and the cost of the hydrogen L'as fnr inflating it will add another $12,000. He has obtained a supply
of 52,'i.OOO cubic feet of gas to inflate
the 250 toot cigar-shape J envelope,
which has a diameter of fifty feet in
the centre.
Dr. Gans says the two big problems
to overcome will be atmospheric disturbances that might divert the airship from its course and the ability to
remain aloft the necessary length of
time. He believes that he has solved
both difficulties. The first lie thinks
has been solved in the selection of his
route. The second he has dealt with
in the equipment of his airship.
He has figured that his airship will
lose weight from the instant of its
start. This is due to the consumption
of food and drink and of oil and fuel.
He has plans for meeting this condition. Tliere are two methods by
wllich he expects to accomplish it.
First, the airship can add to its
weight by taking on sea water as ballast. Thfs will be accomplished by the
use of fish-shaped buckets let down
by a steel cable operated by a motor.
The wc.'.ei. wjil be stored Irj a cockpit
&nd ttSh ne let out il it becomes necessary to reduce the weight. Second,
the lifting power can be reduced by
lowering the t"mriprature of the gas.
Two 'means will be used to attain
this point. One method is to cover
the upper sur'nc of the balloon with
a thin cloth saturated with a chemical
composition that nets as an absorbent
lor the moisturs and serves to a certain degree to counteract the beating
tendencies o' Uie sun's rays. By means
cf another device the cloth can be
sprayed with sea water.
The big L'as envelope will be fitted
with three nir ballonete for tbe pur-
pose of keeping it perfectly distended.
As the L'fis escapes from the balloon
nir will be pumped into the ballonets.
The combined capacity oi these air
bags is 111,804 cubic feet, which if necessary can t::ke the place created by
the loss of gas.
Ths Triple Plume.
The (hree leathers nl the I'rlncp of
Wales, with the i.ernmii motto. "Ich
Dien'' r'l serve"!, are s%;iposed to be
lhe arms nt the blind king of Bohemia, whom Edward 11 L's sod, the
Black Prince, overcame at Cressy.
The captor. It will be reraemliered,
waited in his own tent upon hls captive; hence a special significance to
lhe words "I serve." in this, bow-
ever, we have a story thst history refuses to accept. The triple plume. Indeed, ns well ah feathers ot various
uumbers. came Into general use about
the time ot Edward HI. But It was
not unknown before that time, aud
even nt tbnt time It was not the distinctive cognizance of tbe Prince of
Wales. Otber members of tbe royal
family bore It as well as be. Not till
tue reign of Henry VII. was the triple
plume frit bin n coronet restricted to

R-.cium Treatment for Cancer.
The medical correspondent of The
London Grnpl.iic says that a satisfactory result has come to light reriri-
inc" the treatment of cancer by the
radium method at King's College hospital. A large cancer crowth bad to
lie dealt with. An opera'ion pr vious'y
In '. been performed, but tbe cancer
returned with .renewed virulence. X
rays and other treatments 'were then
triecj without success, and ti it a 1 ly 251
milligrams of pure radium bromide
were applied for twenty-four hours.
The tubes were so arranveJ tliat the
diseased parts were subjected to a
regular cro-s'ire of the curative ray*,
and the application was repeated once
only. As a resu't of tl ���> treatment it is
stated that pain quickly ceased and
the growth rapidly shrank up so that
at the end ol five weeks it had dis-
appeared. A doctor in describing thi*
c se says that if this result can be
repeated and the technique of thp
treatment so improved thnt even desp-
seated tumors can be brought under
the radio-active influence there will be
very good reason for supposing that
tie long hoped for conquest of cancer,
i- indeed at hand.

THE PAPAL GUARDS.
Th;  Most Unique and "trUing Army
In   the   Worlt'.
Tbe most singular and striking body
nf trained soldiers serving under any
pitentate is that which garrisons the
Pope's palace in Rome. Fn m the
silver-casqued Noble Guards, the
Swiss Halbordiers in doublet and ruff,
down to the Palatine Guards in shako
vnd the Pontificial Gendarmes in bear-
;kin. they form a distinctive feature
if the papal court and a befitting set-
ling to a mediaeval picture. Their
|gorgeous or quaint uniforms, glancing helmets, flashing arms, glittering
breastplates ��� like tbe black velvet
[doublets, ruffs and rapiers ol the gentlemen-in-waiting���are in perfect artistic harmony with their surroundings,
from which tliey receive and on which
thry besto.v tbat correlative fitness of
the Vatican, although tbe presence of
these troopers and foreign mercen-
ari , morally speaking, is an anomaly
and  an  anachronism. '
' This singular little army of a spiritual potentate consists of noble Roman
volunteers, burgher civic guards and
Italian or foreign mercenaries, and
c - prises four companies, differently
armed, uniformed and officered, and
each possessing a distinct history of
it?  own and a separate organization.
First in dignity .and antiquity come
the No' 'e Guards, in their scarlet
tunics, golden epaulets and silver helmets. Raised in 1485 under tbe name
of Light Horsemen, they were formed
into two squadrons; and many years
later, in 1555, tbeir strength was increased by the addition of 100 Iree
lances, chosen exclusively frcm the
scion of noble bouses who could show
a sufficient number of quarterings.
The two corps were reoricnazed and
united into one by Pope Pius VII. in
1801. when, after the stress and storm
of the great French revolution, he
hae righted the ship of St. Peter.
These noble guardsmen mount guard
in the ante-chamber of his holiness'
private partment, and escort the
Pope when he drives out. They now
number 6!) all told, under the command of a lieutenant-general.
The Swiss Guards, who rank next
in precedence, were first enrolled hy
the fighting Pope Julius II., and subsequently, daring tbe 17t' and 13th
centuries, three companies were added to the original one. Alter many
vicissitudes, they were finally reduced
to one company, which mustets 122
men of all ranks, commanded by a
captain ranking as colonel. Tbe other
two corps of household troops���namely the Palatine nr Palace Guards and
Pontificial Gendarmes���are far more
modern, r.nd do not possess the same
stirring traditions. They are chiefly
employed in church ceremonies, conjointly with thj gendarmes, to maintain order among the crowds who
throng St. Peter's on such occasions;
and they are called out about once a
month to drill or to mount guard.
Tbey number 170 men of all ranks,
and are all volunteers, providing tlieir
���own uniform and receiving a small
annual allowance for incidental expenses.
The Pi ntifleial Gendarmes���thou<.'h
last in precedence, by no means llu*
least in appearance of the lour oon-
tificial ft rps���were raised in IHlfi to
replace the French military police in-
fltituted hy Napoleon I., and. like the
Irish military constabulary, were
charged with the proteetion of persons and property lh rough nut the
whole papal states. Reduced in nlitn-
hers and dut. s. tbey now muster but
96 men and officers, and perform po-
lice duties within the Vatican at state
ceremonies, as on tbe occasion of tbe
present Pope's jubilee, and act in conjunction with tbe Palatine Guards in
keeping order within St. Peter's.
Finger Arithmetic.
The earliest way of counting was
by means of the fingers, and in the
picture writing of the ancients the
drawing o( an open hand invariably
��� signified the numeral V. 8nme nations, indeed, even went so far bs to
make their week consist of (ive days.
A few.tribes were not con'.-nt U> count
���solely by the fingers alone and added
their toes as well. The Astecs. for ex-
Ample, counted in multiples ol twenty and had twenty days in their
months. Tbe Roman notation consisted of a Un fingered system, and tbe
X used to signify ten is. alter all.
only two Vs placed point to point
or apex to apex, the V typifying five.
HOW TO CARE FOR BOOKS.
Mamma's  Definition.
The family was gTpup4d around th*
library table when the little son look
cl up from his book antl asked:
"Papa, what is an euotist:-"
"An egotist," the father answered,
"is a HI1.U who thinks he is cleverer
than any one else."
Rut the mother, laughing coldly,
appended t
"No. my non, that is not quite right.
An egotist is a man who says lie is
-cleverer than any one else ��� every
-man thinks bo is."
Pure Milk Law.
England's pure fowl low requires
that every can nf condensed milk
must contain a label visible to tbe
purchaser on wbich are the words
""Machine skimmed milk" ur "Skimmed milk." Dr. J. l��\ Couttes now
suggests to tbe British Local Government that cans of condensed skimmed
milk should be labeled, "Skimmed
milk; unlit for infants." ' I has ma lo
���a special study of the subject.
Cats In Ancient Egypt.
Tbe ancient Kgyptians treated cats
with great distinction. It was a crime
to kill them, and when they died they
received a public burin,!, at which the
people mourned, having Art shaved
fc3 their eyebrows ns a .token of sorrow. The most prominent cats were
upon death embalmed in drugs and
spices, and cat mummies have been
found side by side with those ol kings.
Hts Hfct Joks.
Alter greeting in the street the other
|day one of two friends, who was sup-
posed to be a wit, said to tha other-.
"Say. old man, have you heard
|about tbe young lady who poured a
jug of water into a straw haU"
"No." replied his friend.
"Neither have I," said the wit as he
walked away, "it hasn't leaked out

They Should Bs Protected From Gas,
'Heat  and   Light.
It is surprising bow few of tbe many
owners ol books arc aware of the sim-
f\s means required to preserve tbem
in a useful condition and what astonishment is felt when a boo': removed
fr��m the shelf leaves one side behind
or dangling by the  hinge.
Heat, gas, liuht and. by no means
leasi, electricity are the chief disintegrating influences r on leather bindings. Books bound previous to 1850
have the advantage over more modern
ones, as most if not all of tlie tanners
ot that earlier time used tanbark.
Since that date the use of sulphuric
and oxalic acids has been almost universal, and so Insidious are tlieir effects th-J they can hardly bj realized
until the damage is dc-e.
Old books brought lrom other countries are apt to succumb very quickly
to the altered climatic conditions.
Lack of moisture in the air, together
\vi\h our modern sy. em of heating,
us well as gaslight, "central" beat and
electricity, lias a very injurious effect upon them in a few years. The
use of lubricant or food is almost
esential to offset this. A large import.-!- lias expressed a wish that every
imported book of value might be 80
treated at once to fortify it in its new
environment. Even und".- the most
faVorable conditions the need of some
such treatment is becoming recognized, for the Vatican and other noted
libraries are being treated to prevent
dry rot, the leather's greatest enemy.
Years of drying out of tin natural oil
in the skin and the total absorption
of surh oil wbere the tanning is done
with acids have brought the conviction
that some means must be resorted to
by which the life of tlie Lather can
be restored.
Very few think of placing leather
bound books oh t.ie lower shelves to
avoid the greater heat above; o! preventing sunlight from striking them,
for, like electricity, it burns and fades
the leather if concentrated upon it
for any length of time; cf giving tliem
light and air, with plenty of circulation. Bindings suffer far more from
being shut behind glass doors than
from the accumulation of dust or
even from careless handling by ignorant servants. The dusting of books
is something which should be trusted
to carefi 1 or expert hands only, tor
the ninges can easily be '. roken by
dropping or the corners knocked off,
particularly if the leather be dry. The
vacuum cleaner, of course, does away
wit.i such disasters in the electrically
equipped house.
Overcrowding the shelves is another
cause of damage. It not only rub-i
the sides, but prevefits the proper
circulation of air.
A   Move   Impending.
It was after morning school, and
the teacher was in sucn a ��ood temper that little Tommy sid'jd up to
him to discuss a decidedly personal
matter.
"Pleese, teacher." tbe small boy began. "I farcy I shall le leaving thii
school soon."
The tutor looked intereste 1 and hazarded a r lery as to the reason for
this parting uf the  ways.
"Well, sir," continued the pupi',
"mother burnt the. door of the coaJ-
house and the lid of tlie copper, and
father's started chopping down the
stairs."
"Yes, my boy," said the schoolmaster kindly. "But what makes you
imagine you'll be leaving the district?"
"Well, you see, teacher," continued
tbe boy, "when we've burnt tbe stairs
we always move!"���Answers.
Saved  by  a Snake.
Count Zinr.endt.rf, the founder ol
the Moravians, visited North America
in 17-12 and for a short time labored
as a missionary among the Shawnee
Indians. When lie first went to them
they received him with coldness, and
a plot was formed to assassinate him.
Tl.) count was sitting one evening in
his wigwam upon a bundle of dry
weeds which he had gathered for hi.-i
bed. While he was writing by tbe
light of a small lire a rattlesnake,
warmed into activity, crawled over
one of his legs. Just then tbe murderous savages lifted the blanket thai
served for a door and looked in. They
stood motionless for some minutes
watching the aged man and tbeu,
gliding from tbe scene, fled into tbe
forest. From that night the missionary found tbem friends and listeners.
An Almin c Started In 1686.
The oldest almonac in existence h
the "Almanach National," wliich has
been issued by tbe French Government since 1688. Its name has been
r' anged a good many times during
iti career. Originally the "Alniauacli
Royal." it became "National" in
1793, "Imperial" in 1805 and reverted
to its original name nine years later.
Since then the title has been altered
four times. Like most i ublications
of this sort, the "Almanach National"
has grown bulky -itl) advancing
years. The flrst isst^e contained forty-
eight pages, as compared with 1,580
pagoj now.���London Chronicle.
Couldn't Keep It Qulst.
Being called to his feet unexpectedly at tne gathering and asked to respond informally to the toast "The
Ladies," Mr. Gilfers hemmed and
li.wed and began:
"My friends, all that I am, all that
1 have in the world, I owe to a woman���my wife."
Hero he was interrupted by that
lady herself, who arose and said:
"I told you when you put the property in my nsme you'd give it away
tb ��� first time you opened your
mouth."
Too Ready With Assistance.
Smith���Guldmore is a very generous
old Icllow. Do you know, he'a always

Jones (sadly)���Ves, I know. I was

ANCIENT WILLS.
The Mohammedan Says Adam Left a
Record One.
The Mussulman claims that our
forefather Adam left a will, and that
seventy legions of angels brought him
sheets of paper and quill pens, nicely
nibbed, all the way from Paradise,
and that the Archangel Gabriel set
his seal as a witness.
Jacob, the third of the Hebrew patriarchs died in Rgypt at the age ol
147, but was buried by liis sous in the I
Cave of Machpelah at Hebron in
Palestine, the traditional burial place,
of the prophets and other Biblical
characters  of their  time..
It can be stated that the very earliest reference to an actual testamentary disposition is by tlie words of
this patriarch: j
"And Ivael said unto Joseph, Behold, I die; but God diall be with you
huh bring you again unto tne laud
of your fathers.
'"Moreover,   I   have   given   to   thes
one portion above my brethren, which
1 took out of the hand of the Amorite .
With my sword .md with my bow.
"And Jacob cull d unto h,'.: sons, and !
said, gat.icr yourselves together, that
1   may  t   I you that which shall  be- j
[all you in the last days."
In the forty-eighth and forty-ninth '
chapters of Genesis are these word-t
of tlie dying patriarch; and here is
found not only the disposition of "portion" to Joseph, but tha character
ot t^ch son is shown, the virtue or,
fault of each is described, to each a
symbolic emblem is assigned, and to
each  a  Iuture  is  prophesied.
Here is a will, in fact, and in prophesy.
Homer cites this will, made in favor
of PiTaeus, to whom Telemachm bequeaths all the presents that had been
made to him by Menelaus, lest they
1 '1 into the bauds of his enemies, but
ho adds: "In case I shoufti slay them
and survive, you are to restore them
to me in my palace, a task as joyous
to you to accomplish as to myself to
profit by." Perhaps, however, this
may be objected to as proceeding from
fabulous history, lu Biblical tradition, hovfever, we find very early evidence  ol  oral   bequests.
To Luelan we are indebted for the
noble, touching, and certainly eccentric will of liudamidas of Cirinth.
'ihis philosophical in.'l.idual, who
was extremely poor, was on terms < f
close aud intimate friendship���friendship in the full and true acceptance
of the terms ��� with Arethaeu-. and
Charixenes of Sycion. Finding himself
on his deathbed, he made a will,
which while exciting only the ridicule
of the thoughtless or the worldly wise,
calls for respect and admiration in the
breasts of those who know the value
of real cordiality, and can appreciate
his simple confidence in its sincerity.
"I bequeath to Arethaeus my mother
to support; and I pray him to have
a tender cure for her declining years.
"1    bequeath    to    Charixenes    my
daughter  to  marry,  and  to  give  her
| to  that end  the  best portion  be can
afford."
When this will, continu.s the narrator, was read in the public square
(this being the accepted mode of pro-
ceed ing at that time) all tliose wh.)
were aware of the poor circumstances
of the testator, but were incapable of
recognizing tlie ties which linked them
to his friends, turned these unusual
clauses into a joke, and there was
not one who did not go away laughing and observing; Arethaeus and
Charixenes will be lucky fellows if
they accept their legacies, end lie's no
fool to have made himself their heir,
though he be dead and tlr^y living."
But these honest legatees no sooner learned what was expected of
them by their deceased friend than
the. hastened to put liis wishes into
execution.
Charixenes, however, only survived
F.udamidas five days; and then Arethaeus, acting in exact conformity
with the will he had undertaken tj
execute, assumed the share bequeath:
ed t) his co-executor. He supported
the mother of Kudamidas; and in duo
time found a suitable husband for bis
daughter.
Fire Under Water.
Fire under water may hi produced
by placing some small piec.s of phos-
piiortu in a conical shaped tumbler
and then covering them with the crys-
t. '.s of chlorate of potash. Next fi'.l the
glass with water and then add a' few
drops of sulphurio acid, the acid to be
app.)ea directly to the phosphorus and
potash crystals by meana of a long
tube. If the experiment is properly-
carried out tongu?s of bright red flame
can be seen Hashing- up through tne
water, the intense chemical heat produced by the action of the sulphuric
acid on tlie potash and phosphorus
being sufficient to inflame the latter,
although entirely covered with water.
Without Ceremony.
More or less ceremony usually attends the laying of a corner-stone,
but in one case at least It was laid
quite simply.
Two men were talking of the fortune of a third when on said:
"He made his- lirst lucky strike in
eggs. He bought 10,000 dozen at a
low figure, put them in cold storage
and sold them at a profit of more
than 300 per cent. That was.the corner-stone of his present fortune."
"Ah," exclaimed the other man.
"Then the hens laid it!"
TIE FIRST GRAY
HAIR SH OF AGE
Easy Way to Preserve Natural
Color of the Hair and
Make It Grow,
A harmless remedy, made from common garden sage, quickly restores gray
hair tu natural color, 'lhe care ofthe
hair, to prevent it from losing its color
and lustre, is just as important as to
care for teeth to keep them from discoloring. Why spend money for cosmetics and creams to improve the complexion, nnd yet neglect your hair, when
gray hair i3 even more conspicuous and
suggestive of age than wrinkles or a
poor complexion ? Of the two, it is
easier to preserve the natural color and
beauty of the hair than it is to have
a good complexion.
All that is necessary is the occasional
uso of Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair
Remedy, a preparation of common garden Sage and Sulphur, combined with
other valuable remedies for dry, harsh,
fade 1 hair, dandruff, itching scalp and
falling hair. After a few applications
of thi3 simple, harmless remedy, your
hair will gradually be restored to its
natural color, in a short time the dandruff will bo removed, and your hair
will no longer come out but will start to
grow as Nature intended it should.
Don't neglect your hair, for it goes
further than anything else to make or
mar your good looks. You can buy
this remedy at any drug store for
fifty cents a bottle, and your druggist will give your money back if you
are not satisfied after using. Purchase a bottle today. You will never
regret it when you realize the difference it will make in your appearance.
