that Superintendents will answer the questions carefully and
return them at once to the Secretary. Prompt action will materially help the committee.
The committee in charge of
the program has made a preliminary draft, and is in correspondence with schools for the purpose of securing suitable speakers. The committee is offering
a prize for the best map of Palestine by any scholar under 18
years of age.

The Literary.
Public Meeting.
The public  meeting called on
I Wednesday   evening to discuss
the cannery question was very
| well attended.    The S. O.  Fruit
| Growers' Exchange had found it
impossible to conduct the cannery
another  season   without    more
capital, it being estimated that
at least $4,000 would be required,
and the meeting had been called
to ascertain whether or not that
sum could be raised.
After considerable discussion,
a motion was put to ascertain
whether the members of the Exchange were willing to take additional shares. The result proved
negative. A motion to dispose
of the cannery was then passed
unanimously.
E. W. Mutch, the Secretary,
then gave a report of the annual
meeting of the Fruit and Produce
Exchange which was held at
Revelstoke. Eleven Exchanges
were represented. Five had
done business through the provincial organization last year,
and the results had proved entirely satisfactory. The S. O.
Fruit Growers' Exchange has
united and will dispose of their
produce through the central organization next year.
Mr. Ede recommended the
planting of the Stone and Earli-
ana tomatoes.
The attendance at the Literary
and Debating Society is still increasing, there being nearly one
hundred present at the last session. The program, under the
charge of the Literary department, was devoted to England,
Scotland and Ireland. J. Barker,
B. A. read an admirable paper
on England, and Rev. J. A. Clc-
land one equally as good on Ireland. Both papers dealt chiefly
with the history of the countries
and were listened to with the
most marked attention. W. A.
McKenzie recited, with splendid
effect, an article by a war correspondent, descriptive of the
part taken by the Highlanders in
the Battle of Magersfontein in
South Africa. Mrs. Thompson
gave, with good effect, a recitation in the Scotch dialect, and
English, Scotch and Irish songs
were sung by Mr. Miller, Mrs.
Stewart, and Miss Mutch.
There will be a debate next
Thursday evening on the subject, "Resolved that Orientals
should be excluded from Canada." The affirmative will be
taken by Messrs. Winkler, McKenzie, and Main, and the negative by Messrs. McLean, Clement, and Harris.
HISTORICAL CORNER.
The Last Days of Louis XVI.
of France.
A Social Dance.
A very pleasant party and
dance was held at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. L. P. Evarts on
Friday evening. Feb. 7th, when
a goodly number of friends and
neighbors gathered to enjoy a
social time and "chase the glowing hours with flying feet."
The older and more sedate
members of the party indulged
in a quiet game of whist at tables
arranged for the purpose, while
floor manager W. A. McKenzie
called off the dances for the
younger folks up-stairs in his
usual capable manner. He was
assisted occasionally by Mr. Paul
Brodhagen from the Golden Zone
mine in Hedley Camp.
About 12:30 a lunch consisting
of sandwiches, cake and coffee,
was served, after which in recognition of the fact that 1908 is
leap year, the ladies were allowed
to choose their partners for the
dances.
Mr. F. Weeks furnished the
music.
Among those present were
noticed Mr. and Mrs. Lister, Mr.
and Mrs. Huycke, Mr. and Mrs.
Dignan, Mr. and Mrs. Lee, Mr.
and Mrs. Weir. Mr. and Mrs.
Partridge, Mr. and Mrs. Blance,
Mr. and Mrs. Murk, Mr. and
Mrs. Pickering, Mr. and Mrs.
Gough, Mr. and Mrs. McGee,
Mrs. Livcsley, Mrs. Brown,
Misses Denniston and Thompson,
and Messrs. Harris, Gibbons,
Thomas, Munro, Winkler, Bassett, Alcock, Denniston, Starratt
and Macdonald.
The party broke up about 3
a. m.
Geo. E. Winkler last month
sold five thousand dollars' worth
of Westbank property.
A party comprising Mr. and
Mrs. A. Town, Mr. and Mrs. M.
A. Hoover, and Miss N. Sutton,
of Winnipeg, who have been
spending the winter months at
Peachland where Mr. Town owns
property, spent Monday evening
and Tuesday forenoon in Penticton. Unfortunately a snowstorm
prevented them from seeing any
of the surrounding country, and
they expressed regret that they
could not remain until the next
day, as they were very favorably
impressed with the town and
location.

Louis XVI. was definitely con-
; demned to death; the final moment could not be postponed and
] every available means for put-
j ting off the fatal day had been
| exhausted. All the members of
the right, secret royalists as well
as republicans, were amazed both
by the cruel sentence and by the
ascendancy the "Mountain" (the
revolutionary party in the convention) had just acquired. In
Paris a profound stupor prevailed and the audacity of the
new government had produced
the ordinary effect of force over
the masses; it had paralyzed and
reduced to silence the greater
part of the people and excited
the indignation of a few. There
were a few old servants of the
king, some young noblemen and
a few life guards, who, it was
said, intended to rush to the help
of the monarch and rescue him.
But to see each other, to confer
together and to act in concert in
the midst of the profound terror
of some, and the active watchfulness of others, was impracticable; and all that it was possible
to do was to attempt isolated,
and, consequently futile, acts of
despair.
The Jacobins, (a revolutionary
club,) delighted and yet astonished at their triumph, determined to stand close together
during the last twenty-four hours
and mutually help each other so
as to secure the execution of the
sentence. They kept on telling
each other that the execution
would take place, that this was
irrevocable; but seeing that they
kept on repeating it, they evidently did not believe their own
words. To carry out this sentence in a country, which, three
years before, was to all intents
and purposes an absolute monarchy, appeared still doubtful,
and could only believed after the
event had actually taken  place.
The Executive Council was
charged with the painful duty of
seeing that the sentence was
carried out. All the ministers
were assembled in the council
chamber in a state of the greatest consternation. As Minister
of Justice, Garat had the most
painful duty to perform, that of
informing the king of the decrees
of the convention. He went to
the Temple (prison) accompanied
by Santerre, by a deputrtion of
the commune and the criminal
court, and by the secretary of
the Executive Council. Louis had
been waiting for four days to see
his counsel and had asked in
vain to see them. On the 20th
of January, at 2 o'clock p. m.,
h i was still waiting when he
suddenly heard a noise of a numerous procession. He went forward and perceived the deputation of the Executive Council.
With dignified bearing he stopped
on the threshold of his room but
did not betray any emotion. Garat then sadly told him that he
had been charged to communicate to him the decrees of the
convention, and Grouvelle read
them. The first declared Louis
XVI. guilty of a crime against
, the safety of the state; the se^
! ond condemned him to death;
! the third refused any appeal to
! the people, and lastly the fourth
ordered his execution within
twenty-four hours. Louis, quietly
looking round on those assembled, took the sentence from
Grouvelle's hands and put it in
his pocket; then read to Garat a
letter in which he asked the convention first for a three days'
respite to prepare himself for
death, secondly for a priest to
whom  he  could  confess,    and

Elections in June.
The Vancouver Saturday Sunset predicts that the Dominion
elections will take place in June.
That journal in fact professes to
be in possession of information
hitherto not made known to the
public. Upon what the Sunset
bases its conclusions we are not
informed, nor are we aware as
to what relation exists between
its editor and the government or
government officials. However,
June would doubtless be an opportune season to make an appeal to the electorate; the spring's
work would be over and the harvest not yet begun. It would be
an excellent time for campaigning, and the government would
be more likely to receive a favorable verdict if the elections
were brought on directly after
the present session than if the
term were prolonged. Campaign
literature is already being circulated and indications point to an
early dissolution,
POMONA
(We three.)
(In John's house-Tom not
present.)
"Larry,"said John, "we have
with us to-night an old friend of
my father. Like yourself he has
travelled and noted men and
things quite a bit. Mr. Lawrence-Mr. Holt." "Call me
Mose,'' said the newcomer. ' 'And
me Larry," replied the other.
"Shake."
John resumed : ' 'We have as
yet hardly touched the question
of Asiatic immigration, our visitor lives so much in the past that
a new controversy may have
little interest for him yet his
views will help us."
"What is this new question ?"
asked the old man.
' 'The admission to this province
of all well behaved and useful
people say some," John explained, "others retort that it is
to flood the country with foreigners who work for starvation
wages."
"I think you were chaffing
when you called this new," said
Mose. "Conditions prevailing in
1845-50 were much of a kin with
what you tell me now. About
that date American cities, notably New York, were worked up
over what was called ' The
swamping of native American
labor by cheaper workers who
spoke English with a touch of
Irish brogue.' The catch-words
then were 'America for the Americans' 'No Irish need apply'
and the like.
"The 'Know nothing' movement had its violent and shortlived course. A band of rabid
hoodlums would collar a man in
working garb and order him to
say 'Beans.' If he said 'Banes,'
as Paddy naturally would, down
he went in the mud by the force
of native American muscle. The
boys who did that were only sixty years in advance of those who
raided the Japanese quarter in
Vancouver.
"In earlier times still, on the
Upper Ottawa we had race
troubles and labor disputes." The
French-Canadians were mobbed
as undesirables by English-speaking shanty-men and raftsmen,
because they gave cheaper service than some others. But the
French workers were too numerous to be chased from a lawful
occupation. After a pitched
battle or two,  in   which   some
"So it will be here," said John,
"and before long. This is a
white man's country. The province is so large, has so many
varied resources, so many large
industries, so much room for
many larger still that no race or
class jealousies can hold back the
great wealth producing enterprises, now in vigorous youth.
The white men of this country
are in a position to employ all reliable and efficient workers who
come here ; ready to accept
faithful service from any who
are able and willing to give such
service ; ready to pay them all
they can earn, and make loyal
citizens of them."
"No doubt of it," said Larry,
"in good time. But the world
is not quite ready for the Millenium. There is a disease in men's
blood, which of old set the strong
savage to club the weak one and
eat him. Later on he found it
more profitable to make a slave
of the conquered one. Methods
changed but the spirit remained.
Great military forces were organized for robbery and murder.
Even the free cities of the middle
ages, though standing for liberty
and order, were close corporations excluding from citizenship
all who had not conformed to the
conditions of membership as
freeman of the guild.
"Neither was the Church free
from taint. Though she kept
dimly burmng the light of the
knowledge of a higher life in the
teachings of the Divine Man,
pride, sloth, greed, too often invaded the cathedral and the
cloister.
"The tide of progress has
ebbed and flowed, yet the movement is ever onward. The individual man is valued for his usefulness rather than for his power
to destroy, although many still
reverence their oppressors and
benefactors.
"A country peopled as this is
cannot be permanently held up
or kept down by tyranny on the
part of classes, parties or money
kings.
'The mob that wars for liberty
Faster binds the tyrant's power,
And the tyrant's cruel glee
Forces on the freer hour.' "
"Goodnight." "Goodnight."
"All's well."

fur a minute I stood there with the
paper in my hands thinking out the
meaning of this curt message. It was
I, then, and not Sir Henry, who was
being dogged by this secret man. He
���ad not followed me himself, but he
had set an agent���the boy, perhaps���
ipon my track, nnd this was his report. Possibly I had taken no step
ince I had been upon the moor which
ad not been observed and repeated.
Vlways there was this feeling of an
.inseen force, a fine net drawn round
us with Infinite skill and delicacy,
holding us so lightly lhat It was only
at some supreme moment that, one
real'zed that r,iu> was Indeed entangled in its meshes.
If there war, one report there might
be others, so 1 looked round the hut In
search of them. There was no tjaen,
however, of anything of the kind, nor
eo:ild I discover any sign which might
indicate the character or Intentions of
the man who lived In this singular
place, save that he must be of Spartan bablfs, and cared little for the
"omfor's of life. When I thought of
the heavy rains and looked at the ga-
'ling roof I understood bow strong and
immutable must be the purpese which
had kenl him In that inhospitable
abode. Was he our malignant enemy,
or was he by chance our guardian
angel? I swore tint I would not leave
the hut until I knew.
Outside the sun was sinking low and
the west was blazing with scarlet and
gold. Its rejection was shot hack In
ruddy patches r-y the distant pools
which lay amid the great Grlmpen
Mire. There were the two towers of
Baskerville Hall, and there a distant
blur of smoke w'ieh marked the vll��
lage of Grlmpen. Between |Iih two, behind the hill, was the house of the
Stapletons. All was sweet and mellow
and peaceful in the golden evening
light, and yet as I looked at them my
soul shared none of the peace of nature but. quivered at thp vagueness
and the terror of that Interview which
"very Instant was bringing nearer.
With tingling nerves, but a fixed purpose, I sat in th^1 dark recess of the
but and wited with sombre patience
for the coming of Us tenant.
Ann: tnen at last 1 heani mm. far
awav came the sharp clink of a hoot
striking a stone. Then another and yet
another, coming nearej- and nearer. T
shrank back into the darkest corner,
and cocked the pistol in my pocket,
let.orm'ned not to dlsrpver myself until I had an opportunity of peeing something of the stranger.  There was a

of responsibility seemed In an Instant

Incisive, Ironical voice could belong tr
but one man In all the world.
"Holmes!"   I   cried���"Holmes!"
"Come out," said he, "and plea.se be
careful w!th the revolver."
I stooped under the rude lintel, and
there he sat upon a stone outside, his,
grey eyes dancing with amusement as
they fell upon my astonished features.
He was thin and worn, but. clear and
ilert, his keen face bronzed by the sun
ind rojghene, by the wind. In his
tweed suit nnd cloth cap he looked
like any other tourist upon the moor,
and he had contrived, with that cat-
ilke love of personal cleanliness which
vas one of Ms characteristics, that bis
hln should be as smooth and his
'inen as perfact as |f lie were In Haket

at that supreme moment when you
charged into the empty hut."
"Exactly."
"I thought as much���and knowing
your admirable tenacity I was convinced that yon were sitting in ambush, a
weapon within reach, waiting for the
tenant to return. Ho you actually
though)  lhat  I was Ihe criminal?"
"1 did not know who you were, but 1
was determined to find cut."
"Excellent, W.v-nn! And how did
you localize me? You saw me, perhaps,
en Ihe nlghl of the convict hunt, when
I was so impi.i' -.1 a' io allow tho
moon lo rise behind me?"
"Yes,  I  saw  yo !  then."
"And,have no doubt searched all the
bats until you came to this one?"
"No, your boy had been observed,
nnd that gave me a guide where to
look."
"The old gentleman with the leles-
cope, no doubt. I could not make It out
when fust I saw the light flashing
upon ihe lens." He rose and peeped
Info the hut. "H.->. I =ee that Cart-
wright has brought up some supplies.
What's this papei ? So you have been
to Coombe Traeey,  have you?"
"Yes."
"To see Mrs. I.aura Lyons?'
"Exactly."
"Well done! Our researches have
evidently been running on parallel
line3, and when wa unite o.;r results I
expect we shall have a fairly full
knowledge of the cans,"
"Well, 1 am glad from my heart that
you are here, for indeed the responsibility and the mystery we.re both he-
coming too much for my nerves. But
how in the nam: of wender did you
come here, and w at have you been doing? I thought th; t you were in Baker
Street working o.;t that case of blackmailing."
"That was what 1 wished you to
think."
"Then ynn p.ge me, and yet do not
trust met" I erit.1, with some bitterness. "I think tl.at I have deserved
belter at your hr .ids, Holmes."
"My dear fello , you have been invaluable to me in .his as in. many other
cases, and 1 beg lhat; yai| will forgive
PIP if I have seened to play a <*'0"li
upon you, In truth, it wa" partly for
yoiu: own sake H����t 7 did it, and It was
UTS' ""T-'cciatlon of the danger which
you ran which led me to come down
and examine the matter for myself.
Had I been with Sir Henry and you it
fa confident that my point of vtow
would have been the same as yours,
and my presence would have warned
our very formidable opponents to be
on their guard. As |t Is, I have been
able, tn jf��i about as I cnuld not possibly have done had I been living in
the Hall, and I remain an unknown
factor in tfle business, ready to throw
in all my weight at a critical moment.
"But why keep me In the dark?"
"For you  to  know could   not have
helped us, and might possibly have led
to my discovery.    You    would    have
Wished   to  tell   me   something, or in
your kindness you would have brought
me out some comfort or other, and so
aa unnecessary risk would be run. I
brought Cwtwright   down  with  me-
you remember the little chap at the
Express Office���and be has seen after
my simple wants; a loaf of bread and
a  clean collar. What does man want
j more? He has glren me an extra pair
I of eyes upon a very active pair of feet,
i and both have been Invaluable."
" I lion my reports have all been
��� wasted!"���My voice trembled as I re-
. called the pains .and the pride with
1 which I had composed them.
Holmes took a bundle of papers
from his pocket.
"Here are your rpports, my dear fellow, and very well thumbed, I assure
you. I tnada excellent arrangements,
and they are only delayed one day upon their way. I must compliment you
exceedingly upon ihe zeal and the Intelligence which you have shown over
a:i extraordinary difficult case,"
I w.'S still rather rttw over the de
(option which had been practised upon
me, bill ihe warmth of Holmes's praise
drove my anger from my mind. I felt
also in my heart that he was right la
what he said and that it was really
best for oiir purpose that I should not
lave known that he was upon the
moor.
"Thai's belter," said he, seeing the
shadow rise from my face, "And now
t"Il me the result of your visit to Mrs.
Nui.ni Lyons���li was not difficult for
me to guess that it was to see her that
you had gone, for I am already liware
that she is the o"e person In Cooinbe
Traeey who might be of service t�� us In
the matter. In fact, if you had not
gone to-day It is exceedingly probable
that I should have gone to-morrow."
The sun had set and dusk was settling over the nicer. The ?ir had turned rh|ll and we withdrew Into the hut
for warmth. There, sitting together In
the twilight, I told Holmes of my con
versation with the lady. So Interested
was he that I had to repeat some of it
twice before he was satisfied.
"This is most important,'1 said he,
When I had concluded. "It fills up a
gap which I had been unable to bridge,
In  this most con plex affair. You are

llr Henry did not make love to her,
s you have yourself unserved, i le
jeat that the lady is his wile and uot
lis sister."
"But why this elaborate deception?"
"Because he foresaw that she would
be very much more useful to him in
the character of a free woman."
All my unspoken instincts, my
vague suspicions, suddenly took shape
and centred upon the naturalist In
that impassive, colorless man, with his
straw hat and his butterfly-net, 1 seemed to see something terrible -a creature of infinite patience and craft, with
a smiling face and a murderous heart.
"It is he, then, who is our enemy���
It is he who dogged us in London?"

thirdly for the privilege of see-
ing his family and permission
for them to leave France. Garat
took the letter, promising to
hand it to Hie convention. At
the same time the king gave him
the address of the clergyman
whom he wished to attend him
in his last moments.
He went to his room quite
composed, asked for dinner and
ale as usual. They had taken
away the knives and refused to
give them to him. "Do they
consider me so cowardly," said
ho with dignity, "as to make an
attempt on my life? I am inno-
ccttt and shall know how to die
without fear." He was, how-
evor, obliged to do without a
knife, and when he had finished
his meal he returned t<> his a-
partment and awaited Hie reply
I ' his letter.
The convention refused any
delay in the sentence, hut granted all the other requests. Carat
sent for Mr. Edgeworth, the
priest of whom Louis had made
choice, and drove him to the
Temple prison himself. No sooner was Mr. Edgeworth in tho
king's presence than he fell on
his knees before him, but Louis
bade him rise and both then
shed tears of emotion. The king
then asked him about the clergy
of France and especially the
Archbishop of Paris, begging
him to inform the latter that he
died attached to the Catholic
faith.
When 8 o'clock struck he got
up, requesting the priest to wait,
and went to see his family. The
guards, not wishing to lose sight
of the king, even whilst visiting
bis family, had decided that he
should see them in the dining-
room which was closed by a glass
door through which they could
see all his movements without
hearing bis words When the
king entered he had water
placed on the table to assist the
princesses in case they should
need it. He walked about with
some anxiety, waiting for that
painful moment when those who
were so dear to him should appear.
At. 8:30 p. m. tho door opened
and the queen, holding the Dauphin by the hand, with the king's
sister Elizabeth, and his daughter, appeared, and with sobs
rushed into the king's arms. The
door was closed and the guards
with Cleryand Edgeworth placed
themselves before the glass door
to be witnesses of this heartrending interview. At .length
sobs and tears ceased and the
conversation became general.
After a time the king arose to
depart, promising to see them
next morning at 8 o'clocic. As
he was going out his eldest
daughter fainted; they immediately carried her away and Louis
returned to Mr. Edgeworth quite
overcome with this cruel   scene.
The king went to bed about
midnight telling Gory (bis servant) to waken him before 5 o'clock. Mr. Edgeworth lay down
on a bed in the room, and Clery
kept faithful watch by his master's bedside.
The next day was the 21st of
January and the Temple clock
had struck five. The king awoke,
called Clery and asked him the
the time, then calmly dressed
himself. He congratulated himself on having recovered his
strength. Clery lit a fire and
took a chest of drawers with
which he made an altar. Mr.
Edgeworth put on his priestly
robes and began to celebrate the
mass. Clery waited on him, and
Ihe king, on his knees, heard it
with the greatest devotion. He
then received the communion
from the hands of Mr. Edge-
worth and calmly awaited the
1 ime Vvh.cn he was to go to the
sc iff old. He asked for a pair of
scissors to cut off his hair himself so as to avoid the humiliating operation at the hands of the
executioner, but the commune,
mistrusting him, refused his rc-

of the armed batallions joined
their company with complete
submission, whilst others who
were not obliged to take part in
the scenes of this terrible day
hid themselves. Doors and windows were closed and everybody
awaited at home the end of this
sad event.
At 8 o'clock in the morning
Santerre (the governor of the
prison) with a deputation of the
commune and of the criminal
court, went to the Temple. On
hearing the noise outside, the
king arose and prepared to start.
He did not wish to see his family
again so as not to renew the sad
scene of the evening before. He
charged Clery to say to ouy farewell for him to his wife, his sister, and his children, and at the
same time handed him a seal,
some locks of his hair, and various jewels to give to them. He
then shook hands with his servant Clery and thanked him for
his services. Then he asked one
of the municipal guards if he
would transmit his will to the
commune. This man, named
James Roux, had been a priest
and brutally answered the king
that his business was to take him
to the scaffold and not to run his
errands. Some one else then
undertook the task, and Louis,
turni.-.g to the procession, confidently gave the order to start
out,
Police officers (gendarmes)
were seated in front of the vehicle and Mr. Edgeworth and tie
king behind. On the way the
king read the prayers for the dying from Mr. Edgeworth's breviary and the two gendarmes were
moved by his piety and quiet
resignation. The policemen said
they had orders to strike the
king if any attempt at rescue
were made. However, no hostile demonstration took place on
the way. An armed multitude
formed a hedge on each side and
the vehicle slowly advanced a-
mid universal silence. In the
Revolution Square a large, open
space had been left around the
scaffold. Cannon surrounded
this space and the most fanatical
and bitterly hostile troops were
placed around the scaffold. The
vile populace, always ready to
outrage genius, virtue, or misfortune at a given signal, crowded behind the rows of confederate troops and were the only
ones who gave any exterior signs
of satisfaction.
At ten minutes   past ten the
conveyance stopped and   Louis
quickly alighted on the square.
j Three   executioners    presented
I themselves, but he repelled them
!and undressed himself.    When
he saw they wished to tie his
hands he betrayed a movement
of indignation and was about to
defend himself. But Mr. Edge-
worth, whose words were then
sublime, cast on him a last look
saying as he did so: "Permit
this outrage as the last resemblance to the sufferings of Christ
who is going to be your reward."
At these words the victim submitted to be bound and was led
to the scaffold. Suddenly Louis
took a step aside from his executioners and advanced to speak to
the people. "Frenchmen," said
he in a strong voice, ' T am dying innocent of the crimes imputed to me; I pardon the instigators of my death and all I ��� ask
is that my blood may not fall on
Fr��,n<.e" He was about to continue but the order was given to
beat the drums and .the noise
drowned his voice. The executioners seized him and, as they
did so, Mr. Edgeworth said to
him these words: "Son of St.
Louis, (Louis IX.) rise to heaven." The soldiers and populace
rushed up and dipped their lances and handkerchiefs in the flowing blood, and excited crowds
ran through the streets of Paris
shouting, "Long live the Republic! Long live the Nation!" ���
