Opened by Mayor Lee at Request
Board of Trade���Money
It would be hard to attempt to convey any Idea of the. terrible scenes
which are being enacted ln China.
The famine which has for some time
been devastating the land has resulted in literal millions ot the Inhabitants being reduced to absolute ttarva-
tion. Tbe most terrible steps are being taken by many of the people to
ain a little sustenance, among them
being the sale of children for a trifle
to bring theie parents food.
The headquarters ot the famine
fund wbich is being raised in Canada
are In Toronto, and at a request from
this quarter, wbl.-h came to tbe West
minster hoard of trade,1 that body
handed the matter on to hla worship
the mayor. Mayor Lee has now opened a fun I in the city, and tbe public
generally is Invited to subscribe, no
matter how trifling an amount, towards - tbe urgent needs ot fellow
human beings in distress. Donations
may be paid ln at the Bank of Montreal, the. city ball, the office of the
British Columbian and at the office

������Conditions are worse. I think it no
exaggeration to Bay that in almost every hamlet someone is dying- each
ay of starvation throughout the bad
area." These are (he words of Dr.
I B Woods, who is acting aa foreign
superintendent of tho Famine Committee's lelief in North Kiangsu   Or.
. oods has been through the two famines of W07 and 1911. and In toil!
of them he has taken a prominent
part in the work of iclief. i (e is
conservative in hls estimates, but
he is convinced that there are eight
hundred thousand people In the northern part or this province, only a faw
hundred miles from Shanghai, who
ire at this time facing death from
starvation. There are thousands ol
.llluj.es and hamlets in the famine region. If Dr. Woods' comin. nts are true

The active work of relief has nor/
een going on for   a    month.    Work
woull  have  begun on a small  scaie
somewhat  ear)'e-,   for  there  was  already much rea! distress   in   December  and  January.    But  the Committee realized that it would be difficult
to   obtain   sufficient   money   to   meet
'he acute needs of March, April and
May.  and  the country   was  until  recently  in such a disturbed condition
that  relief was out of  the question.
As it is, relief work has been hecun
before q"iet was restored, and before
it   was   possible  to   obTain   adequate
police protection. The Committee decided  that in   view of the great distress  it   must   take  some   risks     In
one instance, grain boats of the committee   which   were  being    escorted

and Mr. C, D. Jameson, all agree that
this will be a valuable piece of work.

Superintendent in charge of the

in.ler date of March 23rd: "We have

ten thousand men at work the:o before many days. This will bo ono
of the best pieces of work we Bhall
be able to do."
Work at Wuhu.
At Wuhu several thousand men are
at work on a dyke on the right bank
of ihe fiver extending north from
Wuhu. Various delays in beginning
work have taken place, the most
serious being due to the failure of the
gentry to raise the sum of twenty
thousand dollars which thev hau
lodged for this particular work. The
city has sail ered very greatly from
the demand of the troops there, and
the Committee, therefore, decided no'
to wait any longer for the fulfilment
of this premise. Work is also being
begun on the left bank where one of
'he worst breaks is now being repaired.
It is impossible to say exactly how
many people are now enrolled on
the^e relief works, as the number is
daily being added to.
The numher of Hiosp receiving help
April  first is estimated as follows:
Nortli   Kiangsu 116,000
North   Anhwei   50 000
Wuhu   District   25.000

Need for More Money.
Cnly about ten per cent of the suf-

at all interested, he car iearn very
.iiuch, and as it were, continually feel
the pulse of a nation's people. Thus
it may be truthfully said, that one
ot the most valuable supporters of the
lmpwrlallBt movement is William Faversham. the eminent English actor,
who will present Edward Knoblauch's
sparkling comedy of modem life, 'The
Faun" at the Opera house, Tucs'day
evening, April 30, for net only dees,
the acior so disposed have an excellent,
chance lo study the conditions and
needs of a country, but he occupies
an equally felicitous position for ac
tlevly engaging in political lists. For
mnny years, Mr. Faversham has been
a lov-al and ardent Imperialist, a &:*i\
hand convert of Colonel George Dennison of Toronto, who fiist iired Mr. Faversham with enthusiasm for and do-
votion- to the cause. Since then, Mv
Faversham's interest haB been unflag
ging, and hiB accomplishments many
and numerous.
For instance, four or five years ago
when Mr. Faversham chanced to be
playing in Toronto, he was the guest
of honor at luncheon at one of the
leading clubs of the city, and considerable amount of political talk was
engaged in. Upon returning to his
hotel, Mr. Faversham sat down and
-.-/rote a long letter to one of the lead
Ing Toronto papers, saying that in his
opinion, the Canadian Government
should annex the West Indies Islands
and use tliem just as the United States
nilb-i s Florida and California as general health resorts and pro.lucers ol
delei table produce, This letter of
Mr. Faversham planted the seed. Ai
tho tim*, le was somewhat ridiculed,
but only a year afterwards, the matter
vvas brought up in Parliament, an annexation hill being introduced by a
friend of Mr Faversham. who had discerned the advisability and practi-
���ihtlltv nf the act. as suggested, and
who acted upon lt.
/ulioiiKii ,vir. Faversham has definitely adopted America as the land of
bis professional career. \ course in
which he has thc examples of Irving.
Forbes Itohertson, Mansl'ld nnd Soth-
rn, and now Lewis Waller, who came
to America for lhe llrst time this ear,
ind who, lt wonld seem, has do:!ded 11
act horeafier only on this side of the
Atlantic, he returns every summer
to England to his beautiful country
home In Chiddingfold Surrey. Here
:.lso does he nctlvely ta'te part ln the
/npciialist movement, motoring from
village to village in the surrounding
counties sowing tlie seeds of progress
and preaching the advisability of a
Tariff Wall around the Empire.
Frequent visitors to the Faversham
home in England, over which presides as hostess, Mr. Faversham's
toatitifiil and talented wife known professionally ;\b Miss Julie Opp, are some
of the most prominent Imneriallsts of
Canada, and the most enjoyable evening passed in a long time at the Chid-
Jingfoid Estate was the evening when
news came to the assembled circle of
enthusiasts that Bonar Law had beer,
e'ected leader of the Opposition. Mr.
Faversham has also been the persuading Instrument that hns led manv
men* to seek their fortunes in Canada, who would otherwise have go ie
to some other country outside the
Empire, and he is still of the oplnoin.
which he unceasingly advocates.'tha*
Canada should have representation J"
the British Parliament. Mr. Faversham makes" this an Imperative rule to
'nvect no monev in England under th^
present government. But for several
seasons past, he has been acquiring r.
ereat deal of property in both Winnipeg and Vancouver and he fa eagerly
looking forward to liis present tr'n
through Canada, as he wants thoroughly to realize the situation here now
and also get a lot of daita for the regime of speech-making which he hn��
planned to carry tbrough In England
this summer.
I have watched them wave from the

As my ship put out to sea,
With their smiles and tears and their

But most in a merry glee-

And their care was laid on me!
I  have  watched   them  wave   to  the
crowded piers
As they turned to their native land,
With a cheer all 'round for the homeward bound,
And a tear for the foreign strand,
Two thousand precious human lives,
In the hollow of my hand!
And this is the law of the untamed
Where never a law 1b known;
Where none may say where the right

Save me, and my word alone;
"If you bring not back these precious
You must not bring back your own!"

And lhe awful waves run gray,

A Simple Remedy Beautifies
the Hair,  Cures Dandruff,
Stops.Falling Hair,
What a pity it is to see so many
people with thin, wispy hair, faded or
streaked with gray, and realize that
most of these people might have soft,
glossy, abundant hair of beautiful color
and lustre if they would but use the
proper treatment. There is no necessity for gray hair under sixty-five years
of age, and there is no excuse for anyone, young or old, having thin, straggling hair, either full of dandruff or
heavy and rank smelling with excessive oil.
You can bring back the natural color
of your hair in a few days ftnd forever
rid yourself of any dandruff and loose
J-.air3, ancl make your hair grow strong
and beautiful by using Wyeth's Sage
ancl Sulphur Hair Remedy. For generations common garden Sage has been
used for restoring nnd preserving the
color of the hair; and Sulphur is recognized by Scalp Specialists as being
excellent for treatment of hair' and
scalp troubles.
If you are troubled with dandruff
or itching scalp, or if your hair is
losing its color or coming out, get a
fifty cent bottle of Wyeth's Sage and
Sulphur from your druggist, and notice
the improvement in the appearance of
your hair after n few days  treatment

Foi many things in cookery, St. Charles Cream
is an essenti.il. It is as good as the best milk
or cream for any purpose. For many purposes
it is nuich better. It gives to coffee,
for instance, a flavor which even the
best of ordinary cream cannot approach, and it aids in bringing out
the delicate aroma of chocolate and'
cocoa. For confection and ice cream
it is unexcelled. For invalids and
infants it is in dispensable. It never
curdles. It strengthtns the strong.

TUESDAY, APRIL 30, 1912.
The Progressive Cluh is not actually in existence at the present moment, hut it is as good as formed.
Tbe inang'n atory meeting will bu hell
tbis evening and the material for a
3$ood club Is already assured.
It Is exceedingly fortunate, although
j��erfectjy natural, that just at tho
.moment when Westminster ia crossing the thrcsholdof a greater future,
this club should he organized. For
many years Westminster has bean
little more than a provincial town,
doing a good husiness in a quiet way,
. but. nnt aiming at anything very differ-
-ent from the existing conditions. To-
���day things have ciianged radically.
There are men in the city gifted with
vision. They have looited at the
Fraser river, they have looked at tlie
Panama canal. Here they have found
a splendid harbor In embryo: there
thousands of workmen are daily upheaving thousands of tons of lock in
order to facilitate communlDatlop between the Atlantic and Paciflc oceans.
They have nut these facts together;
thev see the"relation between the two,
-Hie'fresh water port of British Columbia and the new waterway of the
-world's commerce. They have also
added another factor in tlieir calculation, the C. N. R. This railway com-
pony knows the advantages of Westminster's position and it is practical!*
cettain that it is not going to pas3
them up. Westminster offers about
-the best distributing point possible to
the great new transcontinental and
the company will. almost certainly
take advantage of that fact. Consequently the men that see these things
The census bureau has just compiled a summary of the agricultural
statistics collected in the thirteenth
census of the United States. Tho almost incomprehensible sum of ?40>-
091,000,000 is given as the total value
of the farm property in this country.
About two-thirds of that sum represents the value of the land, about one-
sixth the value of the buildings and
ahout another sixth the combined
value of the live stock, farm implements anil machinery.
The total numher of farms ln the
United States is 6,3fil,B02. They contain a total of 878,789,000 acres, of
vhich 478,452,000 ac.ros are improved
A fraction moie than 4fi per cent, or
the total hind area of the country is
embraced in the farms, and more
than half of the farm land���o-i.-l per
cent���is improved. In other words
alfeosl exac.tlv one-fourth of the total
land area of the United States Is Improved farm land.
The average size of a farm i3 1��
acres, With an average of seventy-five
acres imi roved. The average value
of all farm property is $0,444, or Jlil.til
per acre. The average value nf the
Farm land itself per acre is $32.40.
In the decade from 1900 to 1910 the
ponulatlon "f the country increased
Sl per cent, as a whole. During that
reripd the Increase in urban population was neatly 35 per cent., hut tho
rural population increased only 11
per cent. In other words population
in the towns anl cities increased
relatively more than three times as
fast as in rural districts. This seems
to demonstrate that the city lures the
hoy from the farm to a much greate
degree than the cry of "back to the
land" appeals to the men���young and
old���of  the  city.
A relative decrease in the number
of men engaged in providing the agri-
cultural necessities of our people is
largely responsible for the continually
increasing cost of living. Those working on the farms are not increasing
the output of agricultural commodities
at as great a rate as our population
as a whole is increasing, says the
Inter Ocean.

which the Olympic committee has

The founder, or better the revivalist, who started the movement which
hos placed the Olympic games In
the high posilion that they now occupy���Pierre de Cou Berlin���has
written a verj  interesting article   on
the work of the International Olympic committee.
"At my request and in agreement
witn the plan I had placed before the
international congress, which was assembled at the Palais de la Sorbonne
in Paris," says the writer, "it was de-
ermined on the 23rd June, 1894, to
revive the Olmpic games, and resolved that they should be held every
rourth year in one or other of tue
great capitals of the world. In order
to stuerintend and develop the duties
of the institution a permanent International Olympic committee was appointed, with power to fill any vacancies that might arise in the course
of time so as thereby, to be independent of organizations already existing, and their rivalry. This was in
pursuanco of endeavors long thought
of and long piepared. I have elsewhere explained the reasons why 1
considered such a revival of the
Dlympic games in a modern form to
be of advantage to athletics���too
many injurious and unprincipled elements threatened to annihilate true
sportsmanship; the Olympic games
were the necessary remedy.
"The International Olympic committee has not betrayed tne great
task with which it was entrusted.
Every year has given it increased
reputation and increased strength,
and hy its e;iorts there have been
celebrated five first Olympiads (Athens 189(1, Paris 1900, St. Louis 1904,
bon'on 1908, and Stockhonn 1912),
under conditions which have often
teen difficult but which have been
overcome in a most brilliant manner,
it has met every j,ear in different
countries under the pationage of the
rulers of those lands, and has been
received in a most flattering way by
the authorities. It has been an element of 1 euce and union for rival associations which weie very often hostile ti each other.
"The committee has at present 45
members belonging to 31 different
countries. Five of the founders still
em; in at their post; besides mysali
these aie Professor W. AI. Sloane
ilnited States of America), Colonel
V. G. Black (Sweden), B, Callot
'France), und Dr. Hii Quth (Bohemia). Amongst those whom death
iias taken from our midst, General
on der Asseburg (Germany) and Sir
oivard Vincent 1 England) live in im-
.-aortal memoiy. I salute them when
I call to mind these names which
are so dear to  us.
As was said above, tho International Olympic commltte i�� a permanent
one and renews itself In such a way
that there is at least one member,
sometimes even 3 or 4. for every land
that is represented. The number or
the countries that ran be represented
Is unrestricted. The members are re
gar led as the delegates of the International Olympic committee to the
��� rortlne world and athletic associations in the respective countries.
They arc not allo.vcd to be entrusted
by these associations with any com-
nlssioii calculated to bind them more

The congress at  Havre at  which    the

Ths Daobab Is a Dwarf In Height Buf
of Enormous Ctrth.
Not all the "lii-:" trees of the world
rftpw in liiitisli Columbia, as many
might suppose; from having seen so
much in print nbout the giant sequo-1
las of thnt province. Th.-1 eucalyptus |
trees of Australia and Tasmania attain
a greater height, for instance. Ol
course, any trea hearing ita topmost
branches from 300 to 350 feet up in the
air is bound to excite the admiration
of the beholder, and the two vane,
ties mentioned nre the only ones enjoying this distinction. But when it
comes to size of trunk there is another to si.are the honor. This is tha
giant baobab tree of Africa and India,
another name lor which is the mon.
key-bread tree. Many are to be found
in tropirj Africa, where it grows to
huge siza of trunk. Unlike the sequoia
and eucalyptus trc:s, however, the
baobab does not attaia any great
height. Its trunk may be 20 to 30 feet
in diameter, but the branches spread
out at a height of 25 to 30 feet, often
extending 00 to 70 bet and sometimes
bending downward so that their tips
nearly loticli the ground, making a
l?atv tent, nf quite large proportions.
The name monkey-bread comes from
the fruit, of the buobu1! tree, which
is a woody capsule ubout thj size of a
citron and contains a farinaceous pulp
of pleasantly acid flavor. The wood
is very soft and the bark is used hy
natives  for  making rope   and  cloth.
Peer In a PulpI'.
Lord Kitinaiid, who lias gone to
Egypt for a three months trip, was at
one time a famous footballer. A handbook published thirty-eight years ago
described him as "without exception
the best player i f the day. capable of
tukimj any place on the field." He
was quite fearless himself, but his
mother suffered some anxiety on his
account. When the late Sir Francis
Marindin, also a footballer, called upon her one day. she expressed her
fear that "Arthur woulJ some day
come home with a broken leg,." "Don't
be alarmed," smilingly answered Sir
Francis, "for if he does it will not be
his own."
Lord Kinnaird has often occupied a
pulpit as a preacher. He ii distinctly
evangelical in tone, and has learnt the
art of being able to drive homely
truths into the hearts of llis congregation without hardly ever raising his
voice or indulging in eloquent gestures. Nor is be above raising an occasional lau-;!i with a word, or a phrase,
or a story.

Tbe greater part of the desert nl

cover it with grass for a few week*

being mainly upon its borders, anl
the oases are depressions in whicb
water can be collected and stored.
It was one time believed that tlie
whole of the desert was below the
sea level instead of only a comparatively small part of it.

could hardly exceed a whisper, "Doctor." said he, "I'll bet you live guineas 1 live till nine."���London Tit-Bits.
A Story cf Fndorick William 1. and
Locatelli, the Violinist.
Tho severity of the Piu.*siar kirn?,
Frederick William I., especially to-
ward the son who became Frederick
tn . Great, has given him a perhaps
undeserved reputation for sternness.
Anecdotes that reveal gentler qualities nre related in "The House of
Hohenzallern." One anecdote in particular shows that Frederick William
could even take a rebuke good humor-
In Berlin aspen.bliea and dinner
parties were oiten given, and tbe kinu
was a frequent guest at the bouses
of the foreign envoys ar.d at the bouses
of his own subjects. He was always
most amiable on these occasions and,
with his jokes and gaiety, quite the |
life of tbe evening.
Wben tbe King of Poland, Augustus
th.: Strong, visited Berlin he was accompanied by tlie famous violinist,
Locatelli. Although Frederick William bated virtuosi, be was obliged
to listen to this artist, who appeared
in a coat of blue velvet embroidered
witli   silver.
"The fellow looks like a minister
of war at least!" the king ejaculated.
But, wishing to be civil, be sent liim
20 thalers by a servant.
The artist sent tbe king his
homage and thanks, but handed the
money as a gratuity to tho servant
who bad brought it.
On hearing of this Frederick William was indignant and complained
to Augustus of the impudence of bis
fiddler. Augustus, however, pointed
out tliat an artist of tbe eminence M
Locatelli was accustomed to receiving
presents of gold watches, snuff boxe*
and diamond rings.
Frederick William therefore decided to have a laugh at him. A second
concert was arranged, alter wliich tbe
Prussian king himself gave the artist
a snuff box fil!<>d with ducats and
added, "You are so magnificently lavish that I should prefer on this occasion to earn the gratuity myself."
But the resourceiul artist was not
to be overmatched. He replied that
such a present from such a king was
too weighty for him to part wilh.
Women  as Carriers.
Erectness of carriage and '.'race ol
tigure are the two most |ioticeabl<
characteristics tf the Italian woman,
yet tlie fact remains tin.', she owes
them largely to the custi in of her
country, whicli decrees tbat she sliall
act as a beast of burden.
. In the mountainous districts the women of Italy carry everything imaginable upon their beads. Thev use a
piece of cloth, generally a brightly-
colored handkerchief, wbicli they twist
into a ring-like mat, placing it on the
top of the head.
It-is no uncommon si"'it to Fee s
woman with a cask of wine upon bet
head, and the material for making the
roads is often carried iu tbe same
After a day in the woods an Italian
peasant woman will carry home faggots on her head, and sand, water,
dried leaves for fuel, and building materials are similarly transported.
Mules are occasionally used, but it
is seldom that Italian men are seen
acting as carriers in the mountainous

Opening  Letters  In   Russia.
Ten per cent, of the letters passing through tbe post in Russia are
opened by the authorities on Government ordws. Every town has post-
office experts who have made letter-
opening a study. Some kinds of envelopes can be steamed open without
leaving any traces, and this simple
operation is finished by reburnishing
the flap with a bone instrument. In
the case of a seal a matrix is taken
by means of new bread before breaking the wax. VVhen other method*
fail the envelope is placed between
pieces of wood, the edge projecting
one-twentieth' of an ipoh. The edge
of the envelope is then flattened, then
roughened and split open. After examination of the contents a hair line
I of strong white gum is applied and
tbe edges sre united under pressure.
To Find the North.
Of course ; on know that iron will
sink in water, because it is so much
heavier, but if it is very small and
highly polished, as in thj form of a
new needle, you can lay it gently on
th' surface of a basin of water and it
will float. If you will rub the needle
wiLi a toy magnet before placing it on
the water tbe needle will "not only
float, but will gradually -work its way
round until it lies due north mil
south. Ths north to which it points is
the magnetic north, of course, and
[ not the north pole.
How to Preserve Old Photos.
A unique \vwp~ to preserve old photos
is as follows: Put the photographs into clean bot water; very soon the
pictures loosen and may hi easily removed from lhe cards. When dry, either trim dow i to economize space
or carefully cut away the background
entirely. Mount tliem in a scrap book
or a book made especially for kodak
pictures. You will then have a book
with which you can spend many happy moments looking over familiar
scenes aud faces.���National Magazine.

Must  Not  Eat These.
Sir Richard .leb.i, the eminent phy
fticlan, was a man of irritable temper,
and   when   bored   by   the   querulous
complaints of some of his patients
could not always force hit.iself to re-
t-rn a civil answer. A troublesome
patient. Whose illness was purely imaginary, pestered him one day with
questions as to what be shouid eat.
"My directions on that point," said
B'r Richard, "will be few and simple.
You must not eat the shovel, poker,
or longl, for ihey are hard of digestion; nor the bellows, for they are
windy; but anything else you phase!"

The cone should have an Inch opening

make tbe bud draw up toward tbe

Pungent Crop Does Best After Bests,
Cauliflower or Early Cabbage.
A Wisconsin snhscrlb -r of American
Agriculturist asks for '(.formation on
the methods or raising and marketing
borse radish. Although tbe horse radish is u perennial and will continue to
grow indefinitely If some of tbe roots
are left In tbe ground, it Is usually
treated as an annual wben raised ln
commercial gardening. It is most profitable as a second crop, following beets,
cauliflower or early cabbage. Only tbe
main root is used for murket. the small
rootlets being broken off aud preserved
for planting.
The upper part of each aet should be
cut straight and tbe lower part slanting so that tbey may be planted right
end up. Of course, tbey will grow anyhow, but they will make a more satisfactory crop if planted properly. Tbe
sets may be stored for tbe winter In a
cellar or In pits out of doors. It Is a
good thing to sprinkle sand lietween
them to prevent heating. While tha
crowns of the plants may be reset and
will grow, tbey do not produce a very
satisfactory crop of roots for market
and will uot pay for replanting.
The sets are planted between rows of
cabbage or cauliflower In boles elgbt
or ten Inches deep made with a llgbt
crowbar. Tliey are covered two or
three Inches deep. If tbey are not. set
deeply tliey are likely to come up too
soon and interfere with cultivating and
harvesting the tlrst crop. Ry planting
oue hill of horse radish opposite epeb
cabbage plant from 12,000 to 13.000
plants per acre are grown. One cultivation is usually sufficient, because tbe
ground Is already clean from the Qrst
crop, and horse radish leavea soou shade
tbe ground and prevent weed growth.
