Bpecia] to the Optimist)
Vfctoiia, li- c- March 25.���Witn
ifctyfive passenger! and her crew
I lour the tteamer Sechelt owned by
L B, t'. Steamship Co. has turned
jrtlt in u Rub' while on the way from
fctoria u> Sooke and it is feared that
wry soul "ii hoard has perished.
Fir-; new ol the disaster reached
luuiiniili by a tug-boat from William
lead, ud was of the most alarming
binder, the statement being made
tat not u vestige of the vessel or of
ht��eiiii board of her could be found.
Tug i> Despatched
Immediately the tug William Joliffe
���*��� hurried oul frcm Esuuimalt to the
*itco[ the '.vreck at Bcecher Head near
'Mt Rocks, kit at the time of wiling
* verification of the news was to
md. Thc telephone line to William
lead was out  of order,  and nothing
mid be beard until the William Joliffe
iHurneti.
Boy Brought the Newa
Early in lhe morning a boy arrived
* a gasoline launch from William
pead Quarantine Station to inform the
iiv..'.v Ct mpany of the disaster.   The
I utely dazed with horror
I . brought, and could only
repeat again and again in a broken way,
the single fact that the Sechelt had
capsized. Questioned closely ubout the
matter he said he thought everybody
on board was drowned. The return
of the Tug William Jolilfe is anxiously
awaited, and efforts are being made to
get in touch with William Head.
Principally Workingmen
Those who were travelling by the
illfated steamer were it is believed
principally workingmen on the way ta
the C. N. R. construction camp at
SoDke, but it is known that some Sooke
residents were also on board. The
Sechehlt had only been about three
weeks on the run, which she took over
on March 1st. Before that date she
had bren running between Howe Sound
and Vancouver. She was a small
ateamer 75 feet in length, and her tonnage was only 73. News of ihe disaster
reached Prince Rupert at 9.20 thi?
morning, and up to 2 p.m. no further
details were to hand.
Diaaater Confirmed
Victoria���(Later)���"From best information obtainable lhe disaster is confirmed but the tug cannot locate the
vesiel or any of the thirty passengers
supposed to be on her."

Winnipeg, March 24.���With $1,000
sewed up in the lining of his coat, $500
sewed into the pocket of his vest, and
$500 sewed into the band of his trousers,
and $150 in cash in his pocket, Andrew
McGregor juin|ied from a Grand Trunk
Pacific train yeaterday.
Mr. McGregor waa formerly resident
in Kansas City. He had been engaged
in farming in Missouri and decided to
move to Alberta. He came west via
Winning and bought some implements
and stock here. He then left for Edmonton, and at Clover Har, while the
G. T. P. train was running at about
regular 8|>ced, he stopped from the
platform. ���
It is believed that the traveller was
mentally unsound. This may be due
to intoxication or to some more serious
cause. The men with whom he did
business in Winnipeg did not suspect
that there was anything the matter
with the visitor as he transacted all
his business here in a business-like
manner.

Alberta will go out on strike. The
dme on which they will walk oul is
fixed for the night of Murch 31st when
the present agreement expires. Thii
will mean the biggest strike in the
history of Alberta.
Conference Proved Futile
This decision was arrived at this
morning after an abortive conference
between the representatives of ilie coal
miners and the mine owners. For
several weeks they have been wrestling
with the problems of open and closed
shop, the check off sys.em, and question!
of' discrimination. ' Yesterday thing
came io a stanstill, and this morning's
conference showed the futility of further
discussion. Both parties saw they could
not come to terms and the men announced that at the termination of the
present agreement they would go out
on strike.
Military Make Preparation!
Calgary, March 25.--From information contained in a telegram from a
source in close touch with the government, il is announced that Dominion
Investigators   who   have   been   along
Crow's Nest Pass for come months have
reported to the government that the
men of the Miner's Unions there will
strike whether an agreement is reached
with the mine-owners or ml.
The men ure beyond control of their
leaders. Military olliceis of experience
have been suit along the Pass to lix the
best spins to place iroups in cum ot
trouble. It is believed ihai troops
are already preparing to move to the
scene.

The Boscovitch assault case wai
(continued in private this morning.
| There is always a crowd of labored,
presumably accused's countrymen, ar-
! ound the police shack during the hearing
j of the case, but no spicy details are forth-
! coming to satisfy the morbidly curious.
Mr. J. A. MacMaster, stenographer
to the city clerk, is not on duty today
owing to indisposition.
Building permits representing building
;to the value of $3,200 were issued
I during the past week by Building

The Reason Why of Bungalowa
The one-storey bungalow sprang into
! jiopular favor in the east and west
almost at the same time, but for entirely different reasons. In the extreme western and southwestern parts
of the country, homes have always
been built rather low, as a protection
from the dangers of seismetic disturbances, but in the East the bungalow is
largely the outgrowth of the Hat building
idea.
A young woman used to the conveniences of a flat can not easily accustom herself to the inconveniences of
doing the housework on two floors,
which explains why so many young
people are building bungalows for their
lirst homes.
A one-storey  bungalow  has  all  the
advantages  of   a   modern   flat,  except
janitor  service,   and  overcomes   many
of the disadvantages  found  in  a  flat
building.    In a Hat building the rooms
j nre  usually  arranged  along  one side,
I obtaining light and air from that side
'only, which is either directly over the
side walk on the one side or looks into
1 an  inside court   on  the  other.    This
means  a  restriction of light   and  air,
and bars one from the pleasures of a
yard in summer time.
A bungalow en the other hand has
light and air all around it, with as
large a yard as the relative size of the
bungalow and the lot will permit, nnd
makes an ideal home in which to raise
children. Most little tots have to be
dressed from two to four times a day
which means a frequent running up
and down stairs, in addition to thc
duties cf thc regular housework.
The floor plan arrangement of a
bungalow can be as formal as in a
private home, wiih an entrance hall,
living room, library, and dining room,
in addition to the kitchen and chambers, cr it can follow the craftsman
idea nnd be made very informal with
: the large living room serving the purpose of reception hall, living room,
library' and dining room.
There is one feature which should
be included in every bungalow no
matter how informal, and that is a
small hall connected with all the bedrooms and tha bathroom. For obvious
reasons, it is not con%-enient to have
��� the bathroom located remotely from
the bedrooms, and in no way directly
connected with them.
A Inrge one-storey bungalow iB more
i expensive to build than a two-storey
I house containing the same number of
{rooms for the"reason that the outside
, area of the one-storey  building mu;t
��� be greater to get the rooms on one floor.
Out of this fact has grown the two-
| storey bungalow. The man with a
' home 24 by 24 feet, desiring but one
j or two bedrooms can place them on
I the second floor in such a manner that
��� the roof can be given a low bungalow
i ap|>earance, with large dormers to
! provide light and air for the chambers.
i The effect of studied rusticity can be
I preserved,   and   by   using   very   wide
projecting eaves, a bungalow effect
be obtained in a house costing less
than n straight twimtorey house, and
not near as much as the coBt of placing
all the rooms on one floor.
This arrangement of course lacks
the convenience of n home with the
rooms on one level, but the man with
the cream appetite and a skimmed
, milk pocketbook, frequently has to
make a compromise between what he
would like and what he can afford.
In Defence of the "Ankle Skirt"
British resentment of restrictions on
personal liberty promises to result in a
vigorous   movement   in   favor   of   the
i harem skirt.
The action of the mobs in Vienna
and Paris in attempting to block the
innovation by violence has produced a
feeling of disgust in London.    Leading
i merchants intend to ttock up with
the harem Bkirt and push its sale.   Many
| letters are appearing in the press in
favor of the new fashion. The artist,
Harry Furniss, says in one:
"One or more Ol the fashionable portrait painters should paint some of
their fair sitters in harem dress.
"I am convinced that if the artists
and  their sitters lead  the  public  will
\ follow. I do not mean follow in the
sense that cads and cadessess follow
women whether in the harem or any
, other ncw costume, in the public thor
oughfares with jeers and insult. But
more considerate people could see in
the quiet of the royal academy how
artistic and attractive the new dres-
is. In the name of common sense let
us adopt the ankle dress as permanent
and muzzle the changing, uncomfortable, microbe-gathering costumes which
the ever designing dressmakers invent.
"The reason many English women
object to the skirt, I am told by their
French-American rival , is that they
have large feet. The fact is that in
bygone days English women wore large
and shapeless boots. The long, nervous
foot of the English girl is preferable to
the squat, short-toed French boot, or
to the narrow, low instep of the American
beauty. Besides the ankle skirt can be
made like the end of a Christmas cracker,
and thus hide the foot where it is necessary."
"What has done more to scotch if not
to kill sensible dress is the name. At
the moment of writing I hit upon
'ankle skirt,' but. if the modern Gainsborough should paint it there is no
reason why the "Sargent skirt' should
not become as famous ns the Gainsborough hat."
OUR  DAILY  RECIPE
Maraconi La Neua
Boil three ounces of maraconi in one
quart of milk. Cook slowly until soft
and tender, then take four eggs and beat
the yolks and whites together. When
well beaten, add two neaping tablespoonfuls of sugar, one-half a teaspoonful
of salt,-one teaspoonful of vanilla and
juice of a small lemon. Add this to the
macaroni and bake in the oven, in individual baking dishes, slowly. Serve
very cold.
Bran Gems
One egg beaten, one-half teasonnp
salt, one-half cup sour milk into which
dissolve one level teaspoon of soda, three
tablespoons of melted butter, two cups
of bran, about two cups of white flour
with one heaping teaspoon of baking
powder. This recipe makes two dozen
| small gems.
PRACITCAL   HOUSEHOLD   HINTS
To remove rust from kettles fill them
with hay, packed tightly, fill in with
boiling water and let boil for several
hours.  ���
If six to ten drops of spirits of camphor
are taken on a lump of sugar when
sneezing starts a bad cold may be

!    lhe following eloquent sketch of the
life of St. Patrick was delivered bv
I  Mr. Thomas  Deasy,  Indian  Agent  at
I! Massett on the evening of St. Patrick's
day,   before   a   meeting  of   the   Irish
residents ol Graham Island.   It is a
I succint and eloquent statement ol the
history and claims of the Irish perople,
' and  in   honor  of  their   patron,   Slant
! Patrick:
"Just  before  noon today  a request
i was sent me to address this audience
on the greatest of Irish missionaries���
Ion a man whose name and whose work
i will ever remain, as a lasting monumein
lio mark the lise of a simple herder of
Saint we honor today. Down through
the centuries no other name has won
and held the Irish heart, like that of
St. Patrick. He always gave until lie
had no more to bestow, and rejoiced
to see himself poor.
"St. Patrick laid the foundation of
Ireland's churches and schools. He
travelled over the whole island, penetrating iis remotest comers, without
fear. From a country then considered
the most barbarous and uncivilized, In-
sent out renowned teachers and guide;
that have always astonished the civilised
world. In this vineyard he cultivated
thc   virtue  of  chastiiy,   aeknolwcdged
cattle, I" the highest ollice that either from the time when the mythical Maid
God or man could place in the hands of of Moor, of the snow white wand with
a human.being, la  ring of  gold,  travelled  unprotected
I    "The birthplace of St.  Patiick has through Green  Isle, until today when
been the subject of conllicting arguments  the   whole   woild   acknowledges   that
since the fifth century, Pi ance, Scotland,
England and Ireland, all bring forth
i claims to prove that St. Patrick "lirst
;saw the light" iii their respective countries. It mailers little to us, where
was born; still less do we care what

to Antrim, in Ireland, as a slave and that |
he remained there, a slave, during six i
years.    In his confessions, he tells us:
'I was taken captive when I was marly
sixteen yean of age.   1 knew not the I
true God and was brought to Ireland
a  captive  wiih  many  thousand  men
a*, we deserved,  foe we had forsaken
God and had not kept His commandments.'
"We also know that 'he was everyday  in   frequent   prayer   and   he  a|s,i
tetti us that the love of God Increased
in him so much, that he would in a
���ingle day say a hundred prayers, and
in ihe night almost as many, so that he
frequently arose to prayer in the woods
and mountains before daylight, in snow
and frost and rain and felt no evil.
because the spirit of the Lord was
burning within him.'
"At the age of twenty-three years he
heard in a dream a voice saying: Thy
fasting is well; thou shall soon return
io liiy own country.' Again he had a
dream, in which the same voice told
him a ship was ready two hundred
miles away, whereupon he ran away
from his master and escaped to France.
He had learned the language, customs-
and manners of the Irish, and the seed
was planled which brought forth fruit
a hundredfold.
"We will now take from the writings
of St. Patrick lhe following pas-age:
'Again, after a few years 1 was with
my relations in Britain, who received
mc as a son, and earnestly besought
me that then, at least, after I had
gone through so many tribulations, 1
would go nowhere from them. And
then I saw in the midst of the night a
man who appeared to come from Ireland,
named Victorious, and he had innumerable letters with him, one of which lie
gave to me. 1 read the commencement
of the epistle containing "The Voice
of the Irish " and as I read aloud the
beginning of the leiter, I thought I
heard in my mind the voice of those
who are near the wood of Fo.-hlut, which
is near the Western Sea, and they cried
out, "We entreat the holy youth to
come and walk si ill amongst us. And
my heart was greatly touched, so that
I could not read any more. So I awike.
Thanks to God that after many years
the Lord hath granted them their
desire.

valleys. The Cod who is above heaven,
and in heaven, and under heaven.
"From the Halls ol Tara to Dublin;

Saturday, March 25
Notice to Our Readers
��� With today's issue, the Optimist will make ita exit from the scene for two or
three days. The growth of the paper, and of the job department of the Prince
Rupert Publishing Co. have made it necessary that the Optimist remove to larger,
and better equipped premises.
The new Optimist building on Third avenue is how completed, and for the
next few days the Optimist must cease publication while the machinery, engines
and presses are being erected at the new building. We assure our readers that we
will be out again within thc week. This explanation ia given so that our subscribers
will understand why their paper will not make its customary appearance for the
next two or three evenings.
The removal is tf more than usual interest to the general public. It denotes
the rapid growth of Piince Rupert's leading newspaper, and is a prophecy of betttr
things to come. Improvements and enlargements have been planned, which with
our removal to commodious and properly equipped offices will now be made possible. In return for the generous support which has been given the Optimist by
subscribers and advertisers, the management have determined to give the people
ol Prince Rupert and Northern British Columbia a newspaper which both as
"un orderly presentation of thc news of the day," and as an advertising medium
where the sellers and buyers of commodities may get in touch with one another,
will not be excelled by any newspiqier on the Pacific Coast.
This cannot come to pass in a day, but the removal of the Optimist plant to
a permanent home of its own, is the first definite step in a line of contemplated
improvements.
Arbitration and Law-Enforcement
The suggestion that men of the Prince Rupert Industrial Aaociation should
submit their case to a court of arbitration has not yet been discussed by them;
but judging by individual expressions of opinion from some of their spokesmen,
it is not likely to be received with favor. It is 8aid that the men would not be
likely to agree tf> allow any outside arbitrator to decide their business for them,
and that if u decision wus reached unfavorable to the men, that they would give
but a perfunctory consent to the uward and take the first opportunity to go on
strike again.
It is to bc hoped that this attitude will be reversed by the men at their mass
meeting tomorrow night. Their whole case depends upon the reasonableness of
their demand. They profess to be able to make out a clear case for a wage increase.
What then have they to fear in submitting their claims to arbitration, and having
their witnesses hoard?
If the workmen refuse to arbitrate, in many quarters it will be taken as a confession of weakness, nnd as an indication that they hope to win the strike by other
thun the just merits of their r-psp.
There is another issue too, to be facjd, and that must be done by the city council. While no violence has been used, the tinkers yesterday by force took the
tools away from a number of men who were anxious to work. This was a trespass
on the liberty of those men who wanted to work, and a violation of the expressed
intention of the men on strike to conduct their dispute by peaceable and lawful
me; hods. It is the duty of the city council to see that law and order is maintained,
and in taking measures to prevent a repetition of such an incident, us that on Friday,
the council muy rest assured they will have the moral support of every law-ubiding
citizen.
In making an appeal to the intimidation of force the strikers made un appeal
to an element which should not bc called by either side. Lenst of ull is it wisdom
tor the men to appeal to methods of force. Whatever case they have rests upon
justice. That has been offered them in the form of a court of arbitration. It ii
that wuy their hope lies.
In the meantime the council must cease from dilly-dallying with the situation,
and take steps to maintain the dignity of the city, and the right of every man to
go to work und eurn u living without fear or molestution.
Be Logical, Sir Edmund
Sir Edmund Walker, President of the Canadian Bank of Commerce, is one
of the eighteen insurgent Toronto Liberals who opposed reciprocity on the ground
that it would be disastrous for Canada's prosperity, and dangerous to her loyalty
to enter into closer reciprocal trade with our neighbors to the south.
Sir Edmund has already been twitted a good deal over his peculiar lack of
vision, in not seeing that his argument is negatived by his own fondness for taking
Canadian savings and placing them on the New York money market. Now the
Canadian Music Trades Journal says that at the annual meeting of the shareholders
of the Cable Company, a Chicago piano-making concern, Sir Edmund Walker
of the Canadian Bank of Commerce was elected a director. Turning out pianos
that will be used frequently to play "Yankee Doodle" and "My Country, 'Tis
if Thee," does not seem to have much relation to the development of Canada
on east and west lines. But as a number of people have remarked, it is the farmer's
loyalty that is in danger, not. Sir Edmund's.

HOW MR. OLIVER
GOT HIS PAPER
EDMONTON BULLETIN HAS HAD
QUITE  A  HISTORY
Waa Little More Than a Bulletin
When It Started���Waa Started
With a Capital of $22.50 with a
Caae of Type and a Hand Preaa.
The story of how Hon. Frank Oliver
(then plain Frank Oliver), happened to
bring into existence the Edmonton Bulletin, the lirst newspaper published in
Alberta, was told at a re-union of old-
i time telecrapheiB held in Edmonton the
i oilier day by Alex. Taylor, the dean of
j western   telegraphers,   who   waa   associated with Mr. Oliver in the venture.
I    Mr. Taylor was holding down the Edmonton end of a wire, which was con-
! neeted with Winnipeg, and had an ollice
I in the old Hudson Hay company trad-
: iriK fort, which is now the oldest build-
inK in town, and owned by the provincial government.  This was in 187(1.
Every day Mr. Taylor took over the
wire from Winnipeg from 800 to 1,000
I words  of general   news   and   posted  B
\ copy on the door of the old fort for the
i hem-lit of the few settlers.
Frank Oliver then kept a store in the
little settlement! and as he had been a
printer in his earlier days, one day Tuy-
lor >UKKested to ihe trader ihat he get
some type and a little press ami start a
news sheet. Mr. Oliver agreed, and
when, the following summer, he made
his annual trip to Winnipeg in nn oxcart, he brought back with bin a case
of type and a small hand press. It is
said that ihe Bulletin was started on a
capital of $'22.50.
Mr. Oliver found, when he got home,
lhat he had neglected to get any large
type for a heading. Mr. Taylor was resourceful, so out of a piece of wood he
carved the headinK, "The Bulletin."
| The wood had u tendency to warp, and
finally it had to be cut into three pieces.
One day the pieces got mixed, and Ihe
paper came out under the heading, "Thc
Tin Bulle."
The paper has grown into a modern
\ daily, with morning and evening editions

I 	
j       In the one hundredth number of the
���  current volume of "The- World's Work"

I bv that magazine's special commissioner
iii Canada,  Mr. Frederick Talbot, the
writer, tells of his passing over the line
of the Grand Trunk Pacific line through
| B.  C.  to  its  Pacific  terminus  Prince
. Rupert.
Upper Skeena'a Rich Reaources
In  glowing terms  he describes  the
agricultural and mining country in the
'��� Aldermere and Hazelton districts.    All
; the manifold advantages to the farmer
Of   the   famous   Bulkley   and   Tlekwa
j valleys are brought out with a fair and
I square  account   of  the  hardships  and
| inconveniences to  be endured by the
; pioneer who would reap the undoubted
! reward of labor in these lands.   Climatic
j conditions  are  described  as  excellent
! and  the  summer  froet   bogey  is   well
laid.    Mr. Talbot's story tells how the
ietilers are surely and steadily streaming
in.
The Wonder City of the Coaat
Describing his journey down the
Skeena he touches on its perils as well
as on its wealth in lish, and so step by
step along this vast and vastly interesting country he brings his readers
to Prinee Rupert.
"Prince Rupert," he says, "is the
wonder city of the north Pacific coast.
A city where many fortunes have been
made, and where every one of the 5000
people within its limits is convinced
that he is setting the foundations of a
big purt of the future i- no uncertain
manner.
"Certainly its rise has been phenomenal. In the words of Mr. David
M. Hays who was the lirst white man
there, its grwth is probably without
parallel even in Canada that land
big suiprists and hot hustlers.
A Model Twentieth Century Port
"Moreover," the story goes on, "the
place is being reared on the most up-
to-<late lines. The town planner is
bringing his skill to bear on thc general
lay-out of the town so that it may
appeal to lovers of the beautiful and at
the same time not prove a breeding
place for slums. Down on the water
side the engineer is busy with drill and
dynamite to accomplish his splitting
work for miles of sidings have to be
built as well as space obtained for an
imposing terminus befitting such a
railway as the Grand Trunk Pacific.
The unsightly herringbone wharves jutting out from the mainland, as is the
general procedure in America, probably
will never obtain here unless wrought
in stone, for the reason that the harbor
tied is solid rock and at great depth.
But with such a length of water front
as is available here such should not
prove necessary. .
Overwhelming Natural Advantages
"Strategically the poi. i.i of importance. It is ensue, io enter than
Vancouver, us it faces the open sea, and
has no such treacherous waters as the
"Narrows" which are dreaded by all
navigators owing to the speed of the
current. Geographically Prince Rupert
has an overwhelming advantage over
its rivals ils it is 550 miles nearer than
Vancouver to Yokahama, and in the
encircling of the northern hemisphere
from London two days can be clipped
oil, an advantage which n<> development
in marine propulsion can overcome.
Rich Ocean Reaourcea
"But apart from this through traffic
there is a great local opportunity fot
the port to expand directly Prince
Rupert is in touch with Halifax on the
Atlantic. A few miles away are the
great fishing banks of the Pacific Ocean.
All this produce has to be taken to
Vancouver involving two or three days'
steaming. They will be able to gain
Prince Rupert, antl have the produce
half way across the continent, by the
time they have hitherto steamed from
the fishing grounds to Vancouver. It
is also the doorway to Alaska as Skagway
and other ports of the Northern Territory arc within easy reach. So far as
trade of the northern hemisphere is
concerned Prince Rupert is going to
have it, for traffic like water always
follows the line of least resistence, especially when it is accompanied by a
saving of a few hundred miles in its
journey.
Well  Inveated  Money
As for the traffic of the southern hemisphere there will be as stern a competition as ever, but the northern half
belongs to Prince Rupert as present
indications convincingly show. Enough
has been accomplished so far to prove
that the confidence of British investors
which has been stretched to i
of some seven million pount
000,000), is being fully justified. The
Grand Trunk Pacific is essentially a
British and Imperial enterprise and
when the unbroken link extends from
ocean to ocean then it will have competitors, in the language of the inhabitants, 'going some'."

INTERESTING   ROMANCE   OF
"MISS STELLA CAROL"
Little Girl Waa Heard Singing Chriatmaa Carols by Great Teacher Who
Adopted Her���Great Future Ia
Propheaied.
London, March 22.���The first chapter
of one of those romantic fairy tales of
real life has been related in the British
press by Mme. Amy Sherwin, the vocal
instructor.
It concerns a little girl 13 years of
age, whom Mme. Sherwin heard singing carols outside her house in Hamp-
slead, one cold night before Christmas.
This same little girl is shortly to be
introduced to the concert world as a
"prodigy," and, if the fairy tale is to
have a proper ending, she should even
tually become a great star in the world
of music, as Mme. Sherwin is confident
she will.
"I have christened her Stella Carol,"
says Mme. Sherwin, "in memory of
our first meeting.
"It was really a romantic meeting,
quite in the approved fairy-book style.
I had just returned from my salon to
my home in Hampsiead���very weary
afier a hard day with my pupils.
"Suddenly, outside my window, the
voices of two little girls arose in a
Christmas carol. I was annoyed at the
disturbance, but gradually my annoyance gave way to su rprise and wonder.
"Both the little girls had very sweet
voices, and when one of them sang top
A and produced a note of |>erfecl pur-
j ity, I went to the door to lind oul what.
of manner of c hildren they might be.
"I brought them into my drawing
room and learned their story. They
were two little sisters from Holloway -
two of a family of twelve���trying to
get some money to buy their mother a
surprise present for Christmas.
"They sang again -one of them holding a half-eaten apple���and I was so
impressed by the natural beauty of the
voices that I determined to take the
elder one and train her for the singing
profession.
"I sent them home at once with instructions not to sing in the open air
any more, and the next day suw their
mother.
"Now Miss Stella Carol is living
with me. I have practically adopted
her, and have taken complete charge
of her fducation. She will have also a
governess to teach her languages and
to take charge of her during her afternoon
walks.
"Already her upper notes are improving. She can sing top D and E flat with
perfect purity. She has a winsome and
modest little face, and I have every
hope that at her debut, within the next
three months, she will create a furore."

Why Fishes Do Not Drown
Nellie and Freddie had been watching
some gold fish swimming around in a
globe, the other evening, when Nellie
looked up to her father and said: "Papa,
why is it that fishes do not drown in the
water'.'"
"All living things," answered her
father, "must get air in some way or
other in order to live, or, to be more
accurate, they must have a supply of
oxygen, which is one of the gases of
the air. Should this supply of oxygen
fail, death must come, DO matter whether it is from drowning Ot form any
other cause. When a man is drowned
what really happens is that, on account
of his being under the water so long,
his supply of life-giving oxygen han
run short, and as ne can only get it
when he is in the air, he dies. But
this is not because there is no oxygen
in water. As a matter of fact, there
is quite a lot of the precious gas dissolved in water, but human beings and
animals breathing by lungs cannot
make use of it. Their organs are only
adapted for breathing air. Fishes
breathe by gills, not lungs, and the
wonderful way in which gills are made
enables them to extract the oxygen
from the water, and by so doing they
are enabled to live under water perfectly well.

The (irand Trunk Pacific does not offer townsites or additions so located as
to make investments in them of questionable value. Tbe object in selling
these lots at the low prices at which
they are offered is to encourage the upbuilding of these cities from which the
Grand Trunk Pacific will derive vastly
more benefit th in from the sale of lots.
Now is the time to buy. Choice lots
range from $100 upwards on easy payments of 10 per cent, cash and 10 per
cent, a month. You make your purchase direct and secure title from the
(irand Trunk Pacific Railway Company.
Write for literature nod make your
selection while the prices nre extremely low and the possibilities unlimited.

Some of my friends may usk why I
don't take tbe hint and stop these
talks. Well, if they could come lo my
office and see lhe increased business
my office is doing since the Prince Kupert people are better aci|iiaintcd with
me, tbey would use my methods themselves.
A friend asked Dr. Parkhurst, the
famous preacher of New York, why he
wrote for the New York American,
'that rotten sheet,' he called it. Dr.
Parkhurst said that the sheet isn't half
as rotten when lie writes for it as it
would be if he did not.
My method of direct advertising tells
you clearly nbout my methods and
plans. I am not strong on frills aud
pictures. Advertising space is too valuable to be wasted. Incidentally 1
may add I know what good advertising
is and thnt is the reason I am using  it.
How about boosting I'rince Kupert ?
Now, altogether, let's say a kind word
about our wonderful city to at least
one friend who is deprived of the pleHs-
ure of being here in person. There is
one thing worse than knocking and
that is to be silent.
Let's shout so that everybody hears:
"Prince Kupert���the San Francisco of
Canada."
Un January 15th and 22nd, Eastern
papers on Jan. loth, Western papers
on Jan. 22nd, our Prince Kupert Opportunity advertisement appeared in
papers in New York, Boston, Providence, Kansas City, Denver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, St. Paul and 117
Sunday issues of big U.S. daily newspapers in all. On Feb. 25th our Prince
Kupert advertisement appeared in 26
Canadian daily newspapers.
