Reading Time Not Wasted
It was simply the old story', the little
j woman too busy all day to find a mo-
', ment  to get  out  into the bright sunshine, or to have a quiet and refreshing
chat with some friend, and by bedtime
: she was so cross and irritable that even
! the children remarked it.   She acknowledges that she is impatient, but does
not know why.   If you are wise enough
to see tell her that it is because she
has been tied in the house all day, and
has had nothing to refresh her mind.
She admits that you are right, but adds,
| "How am I to get time to go out, I
can't go out on the street without be-
. ing dressed for it, neither   can 1 go to
call on a friend.    I  could spare time
', to go out for a few minutes, but I can-
! not  find time to dress myself and go
i out too, so I must simply stay in."
Oh,  you  illogical   little woman     If
you were afriad to venture out of doors
I for  fear  Mrs.   Grundy   would  remark
that you hair was untidy, why not give
I what spare time you did have to the
, friend who was shut up right  in your
! own home.    Who was it?    Well, 1 am
j pretty sure you had a good book somewhere in the house.
"Oh, mercy " she says. "I couldn't
waste my lime reading."
Listen, my dear, you would not have
been wasting your time. If you had
taken that hour you spent looking aim-
laasly out of the window thinking miserable things, and wondering if Johnnie
was in some d. ep hole, or if the baby
was likely to grow up like his grandfather, and given it to some good book
you would have come back to the things
of everyday life with a happier and
more contented heart.    If you couldn't
So out, then you owed it to yourself to
o the next best. While you are tending
you are not thinking about yourself and
your little trouble*!, and you will find
an hour spent wilh a good book to be
quite as rr-.itil aa an hour's chat with
some friend.
You may be one of those who do not
like to read. Thin cultivate it until it
becomes a habit, and you will look forward to your twenty minutes, or perhaps
your sixty minutes, with your friend
the book eveiy day.
Reading does not necessarily meun
the neglecting of your home or work.
Find out what time you have to spare,
and use it profitably. You will not
only find your mind refreshed and rested,
you will be receiving a liberal education
that would otherwise be denied you.

The Clay Cure for Wrinkles
Covering the face with a certain clay

OUR DAILY RECIPES
Company Desserts
A delicious dessert is made by stiffening grape juice with gelatin and
folding the whites of eggs whipped to
a stiff froth through it while it is thickening. Serve with whipped cream. All
easily made "company" desserts is prepared by splitting an angel cake length
wise and spreading it with a thick
covering of whipped cream and then
putting the layers together and decorating the top with candied fruit
arranged in some pretty design.
Children Cry for Them
Date gems are a favorite with the
children for breakfast or luncheon.
They should be served hot. To make
them, make a batter with a cupful of
milk, the yolks of two eggs beaten
thoroughly, a cupful and a half of
flour and two tcaspoonfuls of baking
powder. When the batter is smooth
add a quarter of a pound of dates cut
line and the whites of the two eggs
beaten to a stiff froth. Bake in buttered gem tins in a quick oven. It will
take about thirty minutes.
SOME HOUSEHOLD HINTS
Figs and dates chopped with diced apples make a delicious combination for a
salad with mayonnaise. Serve on lettuce
leaves.
When serving poached eggs instead of
the usual slice of toast place the eggs on
rounds of bread cut thin and sauted in
butter.
Thc juice of stewed cranberries, with
addition of lemon and sugar to taste,
makes a delicious drink, diluted with cold
watel.
Bric-a-brac should be carefully dusted
before being washed in hot borax water
or soapsuds in which a little ammonia
has been dissloved.
THE SNOWDROP
(From a Legend.   By Alison M. Stewart;
Thousands and thousands of yeara ago,
When the earth for the first time was
covered with snow,
And Adam and Eve were turned out in
,   the cold
To the bleak hillside, and the desolate
wold,
Poor Eva waa weeping one dreary hour
For the sight denied of a single flower.
The good God in pity looked down on
her,
And sent an angel from heaven to the
bare
And leafless earth.   The skies were grey,
And no birds sang on this cheerless day
"Comfort this woman," he said to him,
And away sped the messenger seraphim.
As the angel flew it was snowing soft,
White flakes from the gloomy sky aloft;
And he said to the woman, "Why weepest
thou?"
And she  nnswercd.    "I  weep  for the
leafless bough,"
"Weep not," said the angel, "thy God
hath heard.
But is not this lovely?" he aaid with a
smile
Like a sunbeam Been in a dark church
aiile,
And catching a flake of snow in his hand
He gl. ni-etl o'er the bare and desolate
land.
The snow-flake budded and blossomed,
too,
To a pure white flowei.   "ThiB is for you"

Till his silver wings were lost to sight,

A simple flower with a bunch of green,

Why Not Arbitrate the Matter
Just a little over two weeks ago—on the day that Mayor Manson returned
to the dty—-the Optimist made the suggestion that the city council, the contractors,
anil the Prince Rupert Industrial Association, should select three representatives
each, and settle their dispute hy arbitration.
It was the first word of peace to tbe uttered in the whole controversy, and
it wits fitting that it should come from a quarter that was in no way connected
with any of the parties to the dispute.
Since then the Mayor has become a convert to the idea of arbitration, and
today the contractors have submitted a proposition which—without prejudice
to its merits or demerits shows that the contractors have become converts to
the arbitration principle also.
The only remaining difficulty is with the Prince Rupert Industrial Association,
which has a clause in its constitution to the effect thai any labor disputes it enters
into must be fought to a finish, and that arbitration must not be resorted to. This
has caused a deadlock in the negotiation .
As one that had no pan or lot in the proceedings which brought about the
strike, and as the source from which the proposal to arbitrate emanated, the
Optimist urges the men of Prince Rupert Industrial Association to reconsider their
constitution.
No modern constitution is framed like those laws of the Metles and Persians,
that could not he altered. Provision is always made for change to altered conditions, or for the improvement which experience suggests. A s|ieciliod majority
is usually named for constitutional amendments.
If their constitution stands in the way of a settlement, the members of the
Prince Rupert Industrial Association, without any reflection on their valor or
wisdom, might well consider the question of altering their constitution to meet
the situation.
Arbitration is the modem method of dealing with disputes. International
arbitration courts are ap|iealed to by the advanced nations. The principle of
arbitration is finding favor among progressive labor leaders. It has been endorsed
hy leading labor organisations, as iht better way of making progress. Some of
the trades, as the International Typographical Union, for instance, maintain a
permanent hoard of arbitration. In considering the amending of their constitution,
lhe Prince Rupert Industrial Association would but be considering the bringing
of their constitution into line wiih other progressive organisation .
The strike needless from lhe outset -has already caused considerable loss
to the workmen, and regret to the citizen . A searching and sympathetic inquiry
in lahor and wage condition! two months hko would have brought about a basis
of agreement before any talk of strike arose. Such an inquiry mu.-*t take place
before any lasting basis of agreement is arrived at.
Why not take a short-cut to Ihe end of thc dispute by starting work again
antl leaving the final question of the wage scale to be settled by a board of arbitration, their finding to he retroactive, so that in the event of an increase being
granted, the men would benefit from the moment they resumed work.
That woultl In* the easiest, the quickest, and the most lasting way of ending
the dispute.

SAVOY HOTEL LICENSE COMES UP AGAIN
COMMISSIONERS NOW OBJECT THAT IT IS TOO CLOSE TO A  PLACE  OF
WORSHIP—POINT IS DISPUTED ON TWO GROUNDS
liquor was allowed to be sold from I
the Knox Hotel on Sundays to a person j
who was not a guest of the hotel. |
The dates were the first and eighth
of January, two complaint! for the
first antl one for the eighth. The person
supplied with liquor was John Johnson
who had been employed by Chief
McCarvell to try and obtain evidence!
i against the hotels. L. Patmore appearetl
1 for 0. Besner of the Knox Hotel.
Says He Cot Sunday Flasks
The witness Johnson explained  how-
he  had  bought   two   flasks  of  whisky-
on two different  occlusions from two
different men in the Knox Hotel on the
lirst of January.    He believed the men
i to be employees of the hotel, but might j
j not   be  able to  recognise them  again.;
Cross-examined by Mr. Patmore, witneai
[said  that  he  had  not  questioned the
I price, a dollar, asked for a small Mask j
of whisky and a drink.    He remarked,
in lordly manner that he did not trouble
about   a  little thing  like  that.    Ques-
I ioned further, witness did not remember
being turned out of the Knox twice for!
being drunk there.    He never bothered!
1 about little things like that either.
Constable Mansell gave evidence to
the effect that he had searched Johnson
before he bought the liquor, and WM
certain he had none on him when he
entered the Knox. No one could have
left the hotel to obtain liquor elsewhere
while Johnson was inside. Johnson wits
perfectly sober.
Mr. Besner Testifies
0. Besner gave evidence staling that
he had given express orders repeatedly
tb his men  not to sell liquor out of
lawful hours. He had enforced the
orders by tiring two men recently whom
he had found untrustworthy in this
respect.
After hearing the evidence the Commissioners decided to reserve their
decision on the matter until Tuesday.
WHO SAMPLED THE RYE,
Evidence   in   Knox   Hotel   Case   Interests City Fathers
WILL GIVE DECISION ON TUESDAY
Charges of Illegal Selling on Sundays Laid Against Knox Hotel Were Heard-Wit-
ness Swears He Bought Flasks on Jan. 1st and 8th-Proprietor Gives
Denial—Judgment is Deferred Till Tuesday Next
On Tuesday 28th inst., at 3 p.m. the
Licensing Commissioners will sit again.
Their meeting yesterday afternoon did
not result in any decisive action in
regard to any of the applications for
bottle licenses, etc., or in reference to
A. J. Prudhomme'l case.
Another Objection Found
Against Mr. Prudhomme's applications for renewal or a new license is
now urged the/ consideration that the
Savoy Hotel is within the regulation
300-ft. limit from a place of worship,
the Baptist Church. The clause in the
by-law expressly specifies "800 feet by
a travelled road" antl Mr. Prudhomme
is prepared lirst to show th;., by the
neures*. travelled road the Savoy i-*
outside the 800-ft. limit, and second
that the Baptist Chinch is m*i Used
"exclusively as a place of worship"
which stipulation is also matle by the
by-law.
Mr. Prudhomme also matle the request that his application for a renewal
of licence be considered speedily, and
represented to the Commissioners that by
refusing to renew this licence at a former
meeting they hatl practically acknowledged that the licence existed. This
would affect the :l0()-ft. limit objection
as the by-law states that an existing
licence is not to be interfered with on
this ground.
To Check the Petitions
Though Mr. Prudhomme pressed without Impatience, for a decision in regard
to his applications yesterday, the Commissioners decided to adjourn until
Tuesday. The purpose of the adjournment is to give the bottle licence applicants time to check over the names
cf the property owners supporting their
applications, antl to make sure that on
every point the applications are in order.
It was announced by the Commission
that all applications dated before March
8th. lflll. are now to be considered null
and void.
Board Heard Charges
After disposing of these matters the
Liceasing Commissioners turned their
attention to the case of complaints
filed by ex-Chief McCarvell of the
City Police Force during his term of
office, against the Knox Hotel.
Acting-Chief Phillipson in a lettei
to the board stated the complaints
are  that   on  three  different   occasions
of alarm he exclaimed, "It has been
sampled since in the City Hall "
Instantly a perfect explosion of laughter from Commissionerc and on-lookert
shook the Hall. It must have been
heard as far as thc wharf.
Perhaps Alderman Kirkpatrick even
heard it from where he was attending
to some business outside after visiting
the City Hall during the session of the
Commission, and the interval. But
Alderman Hilditch sitting quiet in his
corner with his face in the shadow, never
even twinkled an eye.
THE BACHELORS' CHANCE
Ladiea Will Hold a "Mending Bee"
A Novel Enterprise
The ladies of the Presbyterian Church
have hit on a novel plan for combining
charily with business. They announce
that one day each week they will meet
and hold a mending bee. They will do
all kinds of mending and darning fo.
the bachelors of Prince Rupert, at a
modest price, the money to go to the
church funds.
Parcels may be left at Scott, Frour'e
& Co.'s store and at Mr. F. G. Dawson's
office on Third avenue.

Prolonged and tedious as was the
meeting of the Licence Commissioners
yesterday afternoon, it had still one
enlivening feature. That wits the incident of the sampled bottle of tye.
Full-sized, with a daintily gilded neck,
and with the cork temptingly drawn,
the bottle hatl stood during the afternoon in an unguarded spot in the City
Hall. Between the consideration of
applications for licence and the Knox
Hotel case in which the bottle figured,
there was an interval of half an hour
during which certain City Fathers were
allowed to roam there at their own
sweet will.
When the bottle was produced as
evidence Commissioner Merryfield asked
if it had been sampled. The witness
Johnson, said that il had just been
tastetl at the police office immediately
after purchase.
"H'm," remarked Commissioner Merryfield examining the bottle closely.
| "Whoever tlitl the tasting took a pretty
long drink."
The witnen seized the bottle and
regarded it critically.    Then in accents

LASTrYEAR
KKA1. KSTATE OWNERS IN
Western Canada
MADE
$100,000,000
From the most accurate figures obtainable, over One Hundred Million
Dollars was made by real estate owners in glowing cities and towns of
Western Canada last year. This vast
wealth was exclusive of improvements
anil represented actual increase in land
values alone.
Original records gathered bv the
Winnipeg Free Press prove that in
eight western Canadian Cities the value of land alone—not counting improvements—increased 562 per cent, for the
last five years—an annual increase of
112 per cent, for each city during the
last five years. These figures indicate
that investments in live, growing cities
in Western Canada are as safe antl
sure as an investment can be, nnd that
1(MI per cent, profit each year is almost
a certainty.
THIS YEAR
THEY WILL UNDOUBTEDLY   MAKE   $100,-
000,000   MORE
You have an opportunity now to
participate in these immense profits by
being one of the original purchasers of
town lots in the Grand Trunk Pacific
addition to the fast growing Western
Canadian cities, otherwise known as
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Division Points
WATROUS, MELVILLE, WA1NWRIGHT,
BIGGAR
The Grand Trunk Pacific offers in
these splendidly located, fast growing
Division Points and in the townsite of
Tolieltl an opportunity for the investor
to share in the large profits that are
sure to accrue as a result of the rapid
and substantial growth that characterizes Grand Trunk Pacific Division
Points antl well locatetl cities and
towns in Western Canada.
The Grand Trunk Pacific does not offer townsites or additions so located as
to make investments in them of questionable value. The 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 tlerive vastly
more benefit thin 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 io per
cent, a month. You make your purchase direct and secure title from the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company.
Write for literature and make your
selection while the prices are extremely low and the possibilities unlimited.

Everything is proper in its way. A
girl once asked a newspaper editor
whether it was proper to walk with a
young man in the City Park after eleven o'clock. The answer was; "Yes,
if you keep on walking." So it is with
my messages. They are proper just as
long as I 'deliver the goodB.' And if I
could not carry out my promises 1
would not think of making them. That
statement is self evident, for it ia
truth. Today, for example, I have a
good bid for a lease of fifty feet on
Second Avenue and my people have the
money to talk business. It may be
they would consider business property
In another street. Have you something that will fit that?
Prince Rupert has a good chance of
getting a first class apartment bouse.
I am looking for the site now. It must
not be to far out antl be well located.
Have you that site?
One word as to values. I buy and
sell at the same valuation, save for illegitimate profit or commission. If you
want to sell me property today at prices good three years hence we cannot do
business. I shall buy property at today's prices and sell you property at
today's prices.    I am a 'now' man.
Let me meet you and talk it over.
