CANADA THE GREATEST  IN  WORLD
FOR  GAME.
The Bait Hunting Ground on Earth—Lacks
Mut Two Members of Ilia Oreat Game
family, Buffalo and Wild I'i(reoii«-
How Wolves Increased-A Costly Experiment—Wolf as a Hero
At the recent convention of thc
North American Fish and Game Protective Association at Ottawa, Colonel Turner, the United States Consul at thc capital, declared that the
Dominion is the greatest country in
the world for game, This is a
statement which may surprise non-
sporting citizens, but which, nevertheless, is quite true.
World's Best Bunting Ground.
Americans come over here b.v thousands at different seasons of the year
for a few days' sport with gun and
rod. New Brunswick boasts the most
aristocratic fishing clubs in the
world, the membership fee of one (it
which amounts to several thousand
dollars. Most of the lakes in all the
eastern provinces swarm with bass,
said to be the gamest lish in the
world, with the exception of the salmon trout. Quail is found in the
Western peninsula, and partridge is
common in nearly every county in
the country. Thc ranj-e of the red
deer and the black boar is* equally
wide, while moose, thanks to a long,
close season, elk and cariboo ure reported plentiful at. the outposts of
civilisation. With Manitoba und the
Territories the home of the prairie
chicken, geese, ducks, and sandhill
crane, with gri/.zly and silver lip,
mountain sheep, and tho grey wolf
in the ltockies and the foothills, with
sea salmon in British Columbia, bo-
sides otlcr, mink, beaver, and other
animals valued for their pelts alone,
Canada may assuredly claim to be
considered the happy . hunting
grounds of this world.
Kult'.ilo suit I'lgmm*.
The great game family lacks two
members—the lordly buiialo and the
wild pigeon. Forty years ago the
buffalo roamed the Western prairies
by tho tens of thousands, while thc
flights of blue rocks literally darkened the sun. To-day there is not a
specimen of either in tlie country outside of a zoo—except, as to buffalo,
the herd at Banff. They have been
wiped from the face of the earth. No
word but "crime" can be upplied to
the extermination of the buffalo by
White "sportsmen." At the same
time, though nothing can compensate for their loss, the wholesale destruction of one great species has
served as the most powerful argument for the preservation of others.
This is the precedent, cited when a
close season is de-ired for any bird
or beast. "Some years ugo it was
found imperative to more, rigorously
protect the heer in Canada. The
shooting of moose was prohibited altogether for a time, and the open
season for cariboo, elk, and red deer
was limited to a very few dnys. The
desired end was achieved and the
deer increased in a most gratifying
manner.
Bow Wolves Increased.
Wolves also multiplied in the sumo
proportion, according to tlio laws of
nature; and now they are more numerous than for many years. Wolves
in their pleasant homo associations
with their prey occupy very much lhe
same position ns railway I'atOS in relation In freight. A popular working motto fnr both seems to bo "All
the Truffle Will Bear." The deer are

Talking About C»-'-u_lit.
"When I first came to the Senate,"
said Senator Cullom to those lunching at the same table in the Senate
restaurant the other day, "1 had
great ideas about a greater United
States. My eyes wero not turned
southward, where everybody soyas to
he looking nowadays, but northward;
I was lust as sure as sure that before
this time we should have gobbled up
Canada. I did not think that we wero
going up there, and make a conquest
of thc country, but I could not sea
any chnr.ee of its getting away from

time, I have watched Canada slipping farther and farther away f'om
us, until now it takes a brave man
even to suggest that some day the
Stars and Stripes may float beyond
our northern boundary. I have often wooden d if any of the members
of that Ieci lature remember my
speech. KHhcy do, they must think
that I am a mighty bad prophet."

had l'sterod as befitted a man so
inec'i Mr. Cullom's junior, "you

Latest Assyrian   I Imls.
The well-known AssyriolorJ-t, Dr.
Hugo Winc-.ler, has unearthed and
published an account of the legislation promulgated by Ki ig Amraphel
of Babylon, which, so far es is
known at pre. eat, was the first book
of laws given to the world. King
Amraphel li'e.l 2,2f_0 yeais B.C., and
is mentioned in the Bible as a contemporary or Abraham, so that his
statutes were drawn up fully live
centuii s before the laws of Moses.
They number 282, and contain the
following:—If a woman who sells
beverages gives bad value lor the
money j aid . to her, she siall be
thrown into wnter. If a v it'e be a
spendthrift, or if she otherwise neglect her duties, her husLnua may
put her away without compensation;
but if a man put away Ills wife for
no o'her reason than thai she has

the man shall pay the woman coin-

Elections
As we go to press the full election returns nre to hnnd. The
parties stand as follows:
Conserviilives  22
Liberals  18
Socialists  2
The Conservative part,*., therefore takes up the reins of government with a majority of four over the Liberals, and this number
may be increased to six by the
support of (lie Socialists whose
intesests, nt present, will best be
served by supporting the governing body. Moreover, under the
party line system, there will be a
more faithful support given to
the government by its members
than 1ms been afforded hitherto.
Thanksgiving
The government of our Dominion has appointed Oct. 3 5th iis a
day for public thanksgiving to
Coil. We cannot but think that
such ;i public expression of gratitude to The Supreme is natural,
aud that it would be unnatural
lo refrain from acknowledging
our dependence upon Him. Such
a public acknowledgement sis is
now called for shows that the religious instincts of the people are
not dormant. Ol course, now, as
in every nge since the gospel was
lirst pieached, there Imve been
, those who have harped on the decay of Christianity. In every age
men have declared that the inner
substance lias vanished; that we
have now only the empty profession. But Christendom still grows
and spreads, and men and women still live heroic lives, and, if
need be, as in the recent Chinese
uprisings, die heroic deaths, for
the sake of lilm who lived and
died for us.
We, personally, are thankful
for this and for the spirit that
moves our nation to give prstise
to God. We breathe His air, we
gaze ou the beauty with whicli
He has adorned this worltl, and
partake of other blessings that
come from Him. If we want to
live independently of Him, and to
be littlegods ourselves, we ought
to 'create a world for ourselves.
Let us not live in God's world,
ami yet ignore Him.

QUESTION!
Why DRINK?
What has it ever done for you but harm?
TRY LIFE AGAIN now without it.
THERE IS A WAY now of making
resolutionsthat keep; that cannot help but keep.
is pH pk
liquor   drinkers   cured,   Easily, S.ifely, Absolutely.
at homic.   With no loss of Time or Labor.
There ia an enlightened aid now which takes hold of a man instantly.
Instead ol' dulling a drinker it gives him almost immediately tiie simp of
new life and power—lets the sunlight pf ho. e inio bit toul at once and
sets his mind into operation with all its best intelligence — a prompt result of effects on lhe nei ves, stomach and whole body which are quick
and marvelous. While at this point the cure has only begun, the encouragement i_ eo great that piobably no medical Woik equals ihis in
satisfaction to a patient.
With this help against the drink habit any man who wants to lift from
his life the handicap of liquor using can do so wftli immediate results.
Tnis guaranteed treatment is within reach of all. Convenient ternn cau
he arian.ed satisfactory lo any one who is at all rea.-onable, though, as
all piopie undirsthnd.it does tot compile with the woiililess quack
elites a iverliued at so much per package, or "Frte", etc. Il is a different
mafer from all this to perfect a course of u urough. special, personal
treatment lhat will really do lhe work ami nue forever, it is a serious
undertaking and requiies a high form ot scientific professional w >rk. All
the different kinds ol cases are handled under guaranteed results. Ouly
•kill that ie developed to thehighd_tc.au doit.. Only professional fees
can pay for the time it requires, though they are made moderate mid convenient for anybody- The methods ot practice used in this work has cost
years ol liim', vast study and expensive experiments. The originator, Dr.
William II. Saunders, had attracted wide notice tor Ids workson Neivous
diseases long before peifecting this ireatinent. An.l still nothing hut care
and personal attention to cases today makes it pos ilile lor him to accomplish the absolute cures which he guarantees. So the reader will see
this treatment means thorough scientific, piol'essional attention. Hut it
also means results that are absolutely certain. Tlie splendid lirst effects
ou a man are alone worth the entire cost of ireatinent.
This treatment can he given WITH or WITHOUT the knowledge of
the patient and can be placed in any of his foods or liquids lhat be ntes,
and beinn colorless and tasteless, it does its work so silently and quickly
that the drunkard is reclaimed even against ids will and wi bout his
knowledge and co-operation. Tl.e wife mated for years to a husband addicted to this curse will wonder if curing her husband by her own efforts
can be true. "Is it possible that there is such a gloiious opportunity?"
i-he will ask. And thou-ands of wives who have put it to the test and le-
joice in the reclamation of iheir spouses who seemed lost lo all sense ot
self-respect, generosity and manliness w iil'trumpei out to the world,
"Yes, i» is true". Our tieatmeut is purely vegetable, contains no narcotics, opiates, poisons or mineials. We u»e no hypodermic Injection of gold,
nor any dangerous compound. It cau be taken ai home without anj loss
or detention from hu.iness. I. stimulates the nervous system at once.
increases the appetite, and affords perfect rest at night. It acts directly
upon the stomach, builds up :hj whole system, eliminates all trace of liquor from the body and leaves the patient in the same condition as if liquor
had never been taken.
REMEMBER WE WANT TO CURK THE WORST CASKS, especially
those who have been deceived liy worthies: remedies. If your friend or
husband is the worst case iu tl.e community, we are mure anxious io cure
him.   Read the following:

MADAME ALBANI GYE.
A Lei nn in Her   1. fit tor Canadians tVltn
Mny ::i   lit.nie.
if Madame AlbaniJlyo was a great
sitigir, the i-< s ill a gieat in si.i n,
devoted to the uplifting and .1.4
gi'alldi. enient of her art. So trio L
the i s; iiation of Iter artistic feeling
that she does not hes.tate to bring
iiii voices which ate . f.eii
clear in.l tree, without one
that li ey may fill n'.i h a
to her own—ra cm .Ira- I
which would lie avoided by a wm: an
of less great lilac than the prima
donna, whose modest 1 eneanor hr.
endeared lur to thousands of titse
struggling i.i  thc mut-lct 1 profe sib.:.
Tho'c is mt cli concerning t'e liie
of Alhuni which has ne\cr hem 1 ub-
lisl'.od, and wil never be published,
which would 1 rove of great inure: t
to Canadians. Possibly no artist
has ever oLtainod such a woi 1 '.-w i,\.
leputation as Albani for qualitei
which have mado hor the pride of the
face from which sho sprung. The fact
that tlv. took the name of Albany,
from wl i:h city in the United States
she received her fust soiious aid in
her subsequent career, points to t'ie
fact that gratitude is one of her
many virtues. This ought to be a
lesson to Canadians to I e.'p a. lookout for all possible moans of helping
their native-born artists in the future, says The Toronto News. Uut
the it'o most charniiing aspect of Albani s character is thc re taut ion of
that modesty of demeanor which lie.'
conventual tri.i ing had so thoroughly instilled. One cannot, be in her
presence for any time without recog-
ni ing that, gieat as is the nrti.-t,
the strength of h r honest womanly
attributes is greater. She has cariicd
unsullied, through all the difficulties
of a long musical carper nm' tirovgh
all tho emotional pilf.il's which surround the artist in grand opera, the
reputation of that ex e'lent type of
Fren.h-'Canadian woman who is upright ill e\cry action of her private
and public: life, without a taint of
prudery or puritanism, who has all
the tict. and finesse necessary to
make her a welcome guest in social
gatherings in every pert of the
world, and who yet carries uni'er her
c'oak of spontaniety and gaiety the
veritable chain aimer of the self-respecting,   spiritually-minded   woman.
Vim!  He • tool! On.
When Nr. Ti'-sraeTi made his eri-
trnnc into public life, ho contested
High Wy.oinbe, and then, as e er,
his ready wit helped him to sr.ci 0 s.
His opponent, Jays Household

"standing for the seat upon the constitution of the country, upon tho
broad acres of his fatheis, upon law,
property and order."
| "What does Mr. Disraeli stand
1 upon?" demanded one of the county
magnate's adherents, with somewhat
of a sneer.
Disraeli instantly rose. "I stand
upon my head,*' he answered, with
a meaning glance at the portly person of his opponent. He proceeded

Attracting Attention
on account of
1. Its Fraser River Placers.    ^^E_z
As fai* back as the year 1858, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef
bar, near tbe town of Lillooet. The adjoining ground is being worked with profit at
the present time,
. A conipany is now working' a gold dredger on the Fraser, with gratifying success, and
a new company has been formed wdth a capital of $350,000, to operate an improved
dredge near the town of lillooet.
2. Its Promising; Mineral Lands.
axi.ki.son l-akic and uiHDGti i.ivi_.u mining properties will prove themselves sufficient to
form a prosperous camp. Yet there are miles of  territory  that remain  unprospected.
3. Its Fishing and Hunting Grounds-^^
Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman's
Paradise is here. Mountain sheep, bear, deer, and all kinds of large and small game
abound. Anglers find the lusty trout where least expected, and fresh salmon cease to
be a luxury.
4. Its Salubrious Climate.<^~^>
In the dry belt, and at an altitude lhat renders the seasons temperate and equable,
the climate is most suitable for health-seekers. Semi-tropical fruit maybe grown, and
at the present time, November, rosebushes and geranium plants may be seen iu bloom
in the gardens of the town
Nearest Uailway towns are ashcroft and lytton, on the Canadian pacific railway.
