THE  PROSPECTOR.
PUBLISHED   EVKRY   SATURDAY
AT LILLOOET, B.C.
BY THE PKOIPXCTOA PUDI.ISUI.V_  COM PA .NT,
A  REVIEW,
Prior to Mr. Smith*' recent visit to Victoria
we did nol interview him for a statement o)
his attitude towards the lion. Mr. Dunsmuir
since the latter had offered a place in the
Cabinet to Mr. brown, of New Westminster.
What we failed to do the j Vancouver World
succeeded in doing, and we inserted a paragraph of that interview for the benefit of our
readers.
We are now somewhat surprised to learn
from a conversation with Mr. Smith that
many of the statements made by the ''World"
liave been manufactured and were never made
by Mr. Smith. For example:The "World"
refer**, to a letter written by Mr. Smith to the
Hon. R. McUride, endorsing lhat gentleman's
action in retiring from the government.
The fact is that no letter was written by Mr.
Smith to Mr. McBride, after the resignation
of the latter.
In a later issue of the "World'' it is stated that Mr. Smith will oppose the Premier
because of his recent actions. The general
public has inferred that henceforth the member for West Lillooet will oppose the present
Government*
We have authority from Mr. Smith to
state that so long as the Dunsmuir Govern-
mene works, as it has done in the past, for
the good of the Province in general, and fur
the welfare of West Lillooet, he will rema iu
a fa.thlul supporter of tiie same.
The "Vancouver World" hns promised, we
understand, to correct the errors reported in
its issues, and we trust lhat ere, this the pro
mise has been fulfilled.
We are informed on good authority that
the hospital building will be erected in due
time. The necessary preliminary steps have
been taken by the government, so lhat when
completed, the building will efficiently serve
its purpose,
Exesption has been taken a! the statement
made in uur editorial of October 5th thai
"our government has been for some time the
laughing stock of the whole Domin.cn" and
that "Eastern newspapers infrequent y speak
of'the back door politics of British Columbia'" This remark, it is said, is aimed
slraighl at lhe present government.
It is hardly necessary to correct this wrong
impression. We, as a strictly independent
paper, may have reason for objecting to some
notions of this and future governments, and
if so we shall speak oul.    Hut in the  article
ferrcd to, we dealt wilh ihe non-party government of British Columbia. Our remarks
could oidy be laken as solely against the present government if It were the first non-parly
government in power.
Dr. Sanson, President, Dr. Reynolds
vice-president, and T. A, Brett, of the
Anderson Lake Co., are in Victoria ar-
ranglngthe tertriB of tbe proposed deal
for tbe mine, which it is hoped will
go through.
R. Sparrow returned this week from
McGillivray Creek, whore he was do'

F. H. Cinder, part owner ut U*<-
Pioneer Mineral Claim, Bridge River,
eame tlown this week. The owners of
th's claim are confident that they have
a good mine, and are not trying to Bell
until they have Bhown that their opin-
ionaare justified. Work will he commenced with an arrastra aa soon a*
possible.
THE DKEDGER.
Messrs. Amess and Munholland are
making very thorough prospects of the
Dredger Company's leases on the Fra-
aer, with a view to constructing the new
dredge. Toe prospects obtained have
been taken in the most systematic manner and have been eminently satisfactory, ao that the prospectB ol a line new
dredge on the river are of the brightest.
Fountain Mine
Operation** nt this mine are propies-
#in^ very satisfactorily, Mr. Southard
being very much pleased with the returns. The gold assays $17._0 to tin*
ounce.
The  special train    which    conveyed   lhe

us it passed by, much to the delight of tlie
.habitants of the village at the junction of
the two rivers. Until lhat Fountain road
built, giving quick communication with
Lillooet, Ashcroft need never expect any
celebrities to stop off there.

LIBRARY.
Although the Prospector made the nn-
nouncement not long ago that a first-clnss
travelling library could be obtained from
lhc government, free of cost with the exception of freight charges, no action has been
taken towards •htaining lhe boon, at least
not to our knowledge. What is the matter wi'h the people of the town? Here is
sn excellent offer free, high class reading
for the winter months, and not one hind
has been raised to take the necessary steps
towards its acquisition.
These remarks apply with equal force to
the matter oi a reading-room. The use of
thc Methodist Church has been offered for
that purpose, and the Prosepctor offers to
furnish, free of cost, a laigd number of newspapers and periodicals. What bitter offer
could be made?
The Prospector   will  be glad   to   receive
m mimical ions on   this   subject  from the
towns' people.

The baseball game between Lillooet und
Lac-La Hnche, played last Saturday at
Clinton, was won hy Lillooel.

Considering th*t they are practically new to
the game, the Lac La 1 iache hoys played a remarkably good game, and for the
first hall made things lively for lhe Lillooel
combination. Wc hope thai Lac La Hache
Will be able to come down here and seek revenge.
One of the prizes won by the victors was
a black hear which remains the property of
the Lillooet boys until their defeat by Lac
La Hache. Thus ilolh I.illeoet 'bear' the
palm.
Columbia Wins.
The America cop will remain on this
side of the water for at least another
year. Sir Thomas Lipton's challenger,
Shamrock second, failed to win on*
of the races, although each contest
was extremely close; la tne mnrace
the Shamrock crossed ihe line first, but

THE NOVA SCOTIA  FLECTION.
Nova Scotia is entirely Liberal. Al
the general election on October 2nd the
reports announce that only four seats
were carried by Conservatives while
31 Liberals were able to secure seats.
DISCOVERY OF IMMENSE
COAL DEPOSITS.
Mr. T. J. Vaughan Rhys, tbe well-
known Vancouver mining engineer lias
issued bis report concerning one of tin
createBt coalfields on the continent ol
America. It is situated on the borders
ol British Columbia and Alberta, Mr.
Rhys, acting lor a syndicate, bas now
hilly inspected tie ground and has m
hesitation in saying it is one of the greatest discoveries iu the history of the
west.
The largest seam in the new field is
4. feet wide and has been traced for
■ix miles or about 5000 scree. A remaining (1000 acres of adjoining land is
yet unexplored, not being required at

B. C. Mining Laws.
The Engineering and Mining Journal
ol Ncw York, in its Canadian Supplement, gives a summary of the Mining
Iuwb of tbis province, extracts from
which may be of use.
A free miner is a person, male or female, above the age of lb' years, who
iu tlie holder of a valid free miner's
eerilicate, which costs $5 for a full
year, or a proportionate Bum for any
shorter period ; but al! certificates expire on May -Ist. A free miner may
cuter on Crown lands and also on other
lands where the right to enter has been,
reserved, and may prospect for minerals, locate claims and mine. Claims
may uot be located on Indian reserves
nor within the curtilage of any dwelling. Should a free miner neglect to
renew his certificate upon expiry, all
mining claims held by liim tinder its
rights, if not crown granted, revert to
the Crown, unless he be a joint owner,
in which case his interest or share reverts to his qualified partners or co-
owners. It is not necessary for any
shareholder in an incorporated mining
company, as such, to possess a free
miner's certificate.
A mineral claim is a rectangular
piece of ground not exceeding 1,500 ft.
square. The claim is located by erecting three posts according to the act.
In general, location of a claim must In
recorded within a period varying according to distance Irom a register's
uflice from date of location.
Wise and otherwise.
A Prl2. Bs.ay.
Water is found everywhere especially when it rains, as it did the other
day when our cellar was half full; Jaue
had lo wear her faiher's rubber boots
to get the onions for dinner. Onions
make your eyes water, and bo does
horse-radish when you eat too much.
There is a good many kinds of water
in the world, rain water, soda water,
holy water and brine. Water is used
lor a good many things. Sailors use
it to go to sea on. If then) wasn't any
ocean the ships couldn't float and they
would have lo stay ashore. Water is
a good thing to fire at boys with a
squiri and to catch fish in. Father
caught a big one the other day and
when he hauled it up it was an eel.
Nobody could bo saved from drowning
ii there wasn't any water to pull them
out of. Water ia lirsl-rate to put fires
out with. I love to go to tires and
see the men work at the engines. This
is all I can think of uow about water,
except the flood.
True to Her Sex.
A bright little girl, who attends a
dancing school, had a trying experience the other day. She is really a
tavorile with the children of the school
out when the little girls and boys
marched iu couples, or danced a quadrille, it happened again aud again that
sue was lett out.
Sue wailed patiently and hopefully
and each lime she was disappointed.
She felt that tbe situation justified a
protest, and the conscience-stricken
leaclirfr agiced with her When finally
.ha stepped forward aud said, in a pathetic voice:—
"l'lcase, .Miss Jones, if there is any
little boy left over nexl time, may I

DESCRIPTION  OF THE  COLONIES  IN
THE CANADIAN NORTHWEST.
Thrre Are Four of the Colonies, Each of
Which Is Subdivided Into Villages,
With From li> to 23 Houses in Kach
of Them—A Iluee of „ar,leners Along
Oue Village SIrc-ot.
Last year it was Lally Bernard's
good fortune to pass a considerable
portion of tile summer in thc villages, accompanied by a lady interpreter, who was deeply interested in
the Doukhobortsi. She describes tho
colonies thus:
The Doukhobortsi are divitled into
four colonies, wholly separated,
each of these colonies representing a
great tract of land en bloc, the colonies being subdiVided into villages
with about 19 to _o houses in each,
which shelter the 1_0 or perhaps _00
"souls" of the village community.
These villages are from four to ten
miles apart, ami each village has its
separate community. A granary
holds ull the Hour and grain of the
villages, and each individual takes
what he requires from its store. One
large community stable houses the
horses and cattle, which are common property, while the village
store room and "smithy" complete
the list of public buildings.
The great wide village street usually stretches in one direct line for
about a quarter of a mile, and each
comfortable whitewashed house is
surrounded by its litlle garden and
backed by a great stack of hay and
straw. These cottage gardens aro
supplemented by the great community gardens, where thousands of cabbages and oilier vegetables arc
planted. But the Doukhobors aro
essentially a race of gardeners, and
delight in the cottage gardens, which
aro gay with flowers, and protected
by fences of every possible design,
some of thein showing a distinctly
artistic feeling. The houses themselves are well built, and both log,
sod and houses woven of poplar
Wands are internally and externally
plastered with a layer of well-mixed
clay, neatly laid on and covered
with a whitewash of a creamy tint.
The roofs, made of poles laid closely
together, are covered with a layer of
straw, finished with prairie sods cut
in squares and neatly laid over the
straw. This year iii many cases the
sod had produced gay prairie sunflowers, and looked as if an intentional "roof-garden" had been planted. The long, low whitewashed
buildings give no idea of the comfort and space to bo found inside.
Wo were usually ushered into a small
vestibule or hall, which opened into
two large rooms, ono to the right
and the other to the left. A broad
divan ran along the end of the living .md sleeping room, and terminated at the base of the great square
oven of pressed brick, which reached
within four foot of tho ceiling. These
great ovens opened sometimes into
*,,.*. .-.man iviucnen utmmu tne vestibule, whero a high shelf was laden
with great loaves of broad, which
form the staple diet of the Doukhobortsi; on a lower shelf stood a
wooden tub of "kvas," or slightly
fermented Hour and water, which is
the national beverage of all Russian
peasants. The cooking utensils aro
primitive, and consist of a few artistically shaped iron pots, ready to
be lifted by the iron fork which
stood besido the wooden shovel for
handling the loaves of bread baked
In  the great oven.
An immense frying pan of great
weight is also dexterously lifted by
means uf a "clip" set on a stout
wooden   handle.
Wooden bowls and well-made
spoons us well us a carved wooden
saltcellar comprise the list of table
utensils; and when a knife is required to cut the gigantic wedges of
bread which the ll'oukhobor people
consume tho "jack-knife" of the
family is called into requisition.
We were always invited to take
our places at a small dining table
which stood at the end of tho room,
close to the bench which ran around
the outer wall. The table was so
small that it looked out of all proportion with tho long anil lofty
room, but as in other domestic details the Doukhobor women havo arranged their dining tables with a
view to their being kept spotlessly
clean and fresh. Tho top of tho table is removable like a reversed
"pastry In.aril," and is daily scoured and aired against tho whitewashed  wall  of  the  house.
During tho day a great pile of coverlets and pillows and small feather
beds are neatly piled in thc corner
of the divan and covered with a.
large Turkish or Persian rug, which
Is one of lhe family treasures,
When bedtime comes the hostess
produces a cm-lain from the great
family chest with a gaily painted design which stands under tlie divan,
and the b.-ds an- unrolled and neatly made behind Un- protecting curtain and wi- all ro1 i! i; lu tin- divan
with its rows of down cushions and
coverlets. In deference to our position as guests wo generally shared
tho divan with the women of the
family only, the men being accommodated with beds in a neighboring
house.
The earthen floor is kept sprinkled
with fresh sand and swept clean with
the "besoms" which the small children are always industriously making.
A  Name to Conjure Will,.
Mrs. S. G. Wood of Toronto is at
present visiting in England. Here
is ono of her stories that will delight every Canadian: The other day,
coining out of Westminster Abbey, I
was met by a friend, wdio said:
"When did you come from Canada'.'"
Two mechanics passing paused and
stared, one sayii g to his companion.
"She's from Canada, she is." I
wish I could impart to you tho
proud tone accompanying the words.
ONTARIO FRUIT EXHIBIT.
Some of   the   Fre.li    Kxhibits   Which  Ave
Sent to tlio Pan-., itiel'ican  F.xpnsitlon
From 1 his Country Week by Week.
At the Ontario fruit exhibit there
is a fine fresh display of cold storage apples of about twenty varieties. Peaches, plums and new apples
of many varieties have been sent in
from Essex district through Mr. v..
VV, llilbron. a horticulturalist specialist of Leamington.
A number of the new varieties of
early apples and plums have been
received from the nurseries of Morris
Stone and Wellington at l-'onthill.
Large supplies of peaches, pears,
plums, early apples and berries have
come from the St. Catharines district. In this collection special mention may be made of sumo very lino
samples of one of Mr. Burbank's
newer creations, tlie "Climax." Several plates of this new plum are on
exhibition. They aro indeed beautiful, the majority measuring over
seven inches in circumference. These
fruits have attracted considerable attention for their beauty, large sizo
and earlincss. Mr. .James Tittering-
ton has shown considerable enterprise during tho past few years, in
securing many novelties of great
v..lu..- in the horticultural world
and his success in this respect is
very gratifying.
(Jueenstown and Niagara aro to tho
front with peaches, pears, plums, apricots and berries of various kinds.
The display from Mr. \V. Armstrong
and Mr. W. II. Collinson being especially  good.
The Burlington Horticultural Society through the Secretary,- Mr. W.
P. Fisher and Mr. Arthur Peer, who
has the work in charge, has also
sent in the first large display from
that district which will now be followed up with regular weekly shipments for the remainder of the season.
There are also a large number of
exhibits from various exhibitors in
different parts of the Province.
li the patriotic Canadians who so
kindly sent from time to time a
magnificent collection of cut flowers,
could only realize the pleasure thoy
confer on Mr. Bunting, the energetic
superintendent, and his assistants,
by helping them to beautify nnd
keep up tho standard cf the Ontario
exhibit, and on the public generally,
who always turn away reluctantly
from tho Ontario display, they would
be amply repaid. Amongst the
most beautiful floral decorations wo
may mention a large assortment of
GUadlolis from the vast collection of
Mr. H. H. CI roll of Simcoo, wdiose
famous selections from thc 10,000
collections of different species of
high quality are being greatly admired   at   the  Horticultural   exhibit.
Mr. Charles P. Wyer, superintendent of tho fruit exhibit of Fresno
Co., California, says "that those
who are behind tho Ontario fruit
exhibit deserve great praise. It is
a revelation and will help to establish true impressions in the minds
of the people, who know very littlo
concerning tho climate an.l proouc
tions ot Canada. Those who havo
sent, and are sending fruit, deserve
to be highly commended, and those
who have not sent so far, ought to
realize that it i.s their duty to help,
not only to keep tho exhibit up to
tho standard, but to outdo if possible other exhibitors. Mr. Bunting
and his assistants work hard in the
interests of the country, and their
efforts are to bo appreciated by the
people at home, who should help
them in every way to keep up the
display, nnd let it be tho very best
every timo."
Mr. Bunting und his assistants
have been very busy arranging their
large number of fresh exhibits, and
preparing them for the jury of
awards.

star Kuke, in.l.-i ...
Thoso who confine their visits to
the large Muskoka lakes think that
they aro thoroughly acquainted with
tho wdiole region, but they aro mistaken in this, writes Lally Bernard
in The Globe. Some of tho most
characteristic Muskoka scenery is to
lo found about tho shy little lakes
lo tho immediate north, where nature is herself and unspoiled. On
thc part of some there is tho objection to leaving the main system of
navigation and adventuring ou a
land journey of a few miles, but in
giving way to this feeling thoy lose
one of the most pleasurable experiences that these northern wilds afford — namely, a drive througli the
deep, fresh, rich, varied, original
hardwood forests of Ontario. To
many life-long residents in this province this is a new experience, for
the original forest has been so generally exterminated that the possibility of driving through miles of it
is rare. Star Lake is one of the
most enchanting of these hermit waters of the north, and thr- oight-milo
drive from Port Cockburn or Ros-
M-aii is the part of the journey which
a lover of the woods will romeml er
with most pleasure. The lake Itself,
with its starlike radiation of bays,
the golden-sanded beach, and tho
deep sylvan rivers that flow into it,
or out of it, where tho heron or thc
i lane regards tho solitary canoeist
with stupefied wonder, supply continual delights to thoso wdio desire
the restful calm and converse with
Hood and field, that, after all, constitute  the true  holiday.

A Canadian Fights un Oltrlch.
Trooper    II.     Greenwood     of the
Yorkshire Dragoons, in a letter sent
fruui South Africa to his father at
Halifax says:   .
"I was coming back to camp by
myself, after assisting in burying a
ma:.-, and was attacked by a largo
ostrich. It knocked mc down. I
caught it by the neck, and 1 fought
wilh it for about an hour. No ono

thing to go on with. The captain
says it wis 20 to 1 on the ostrich

MENIER'S ISLAND KINGDOM.
Chocolate King lteginning   to Get Keturn
From Anticosti Island.
Henri Menier, the millionaire
French chocolate manufacturer, who
has been entertaining the family of
Lord Minto and other distinguished
people on hoard his steam yacht in
the harbor of Quebec, has just sailed
for his island kingdom of Anticosti,
whero he will spend a few days bo-
fore returning to Paris.
Tho visit of Menier to Canada
marks the commencement of the vast
return which he is evidently about
to reap from his investment of so
many millions of dollars upon his
island. This week his agents upon
the island have shipped to the French
market ,10,000 worth oi canned lobsters, being the product of two
months' fishing and canning operations by his employes in Anticosti.
This industry is to be extensively
prosecuted in future seasons, and will
likely assume very large proportions.
Kocont explorations upon the island
show that a large part of its surface is covered with forest growth
exactly suited to the manufacture of
pulp. Some idea of its value may bo
formed from the fact that the island
is nearly 1H0 miles long. Not only
are largo quantities of this wood to
be exported by Mr. Menier, but he is
having plans prepared for tho erection of an enormous mill for tho
manufacture of chemical pulp in Anticosti. Mr. Menier's friends have
enjoyed some excellent salmon fishing upon tho rivers of Anticosti, especially upon the Jupiter, which is
(piite a famous stream. The fish,
though not particularly large, aro
very numerous, and the sea trout
fishing is also good.
It will not be long before there will
be splendid hunting upon tho island,
which is rapidly becoming a hugo
private game preserve, so satisfactory is tho natural increase in tho
number of moose, caribou, nnd deer,
which have been placed in it within
tho last few years, not one head of
which can bo hunted or killed without tho permission of tho proprietor
of tho island.
Very valuable furs will soon become one of tho products of Anticosti. Largo numbers of beaver nre being captured all over the Province of
Quebec by special permit of tho Government for the stocking of Mr. Menier's islund, though tho killing of
tho animal is at present prohibited
to the people of that province. The
propagation of the black or silver
fox is also being conducted with
great success on thc island.
Hampered i,v His Position.
Tho contention is made that tho
Duke of York, if his visit is to yield
tho greatest possibhi interest nnd
instruction, ought to see those things
that arc characteristic of the country. The difficulty is, that thoso
things are not, as a rule, to be found
in lhe cities and towns where tho
greatest efforts will be made to provide spectacles. A private individual, desirous of studying tho country, would not spend the greater
part of his time in Montreal, Toronto and Winnipeg. He would strike
off into tho woods and mining regions, into the new settlements of
Ontario and the west, and try to
form a notion of tho extent and resources of the country and the progress of their development. The
Duke may do this to a certain extent, but ho cannot avoid a certain
amount of ceremonial, which will
take up a large part of the time
that would otherwise bo devoted to
observation. Ho will come too Into
to see the western fields, yellow with
the harvest, which i-s one of the
sights of Canada. Still, we believe, ho will take back to England
a fair idea of the extent of this
part of the British Kiupiro and of
the contentment of its people.!—Toronto  Globe.

very much afraid of him. The appearance of a red-headed woodpecker
will set a whole lot of sparrows lo
flight, and the only time Ihey will
face him Is when ho makes an onset
on  their nests.
The eggs of tho sparrows are not
larger than peas and their young

a nestful of young sparrows is a
dainty picnic for a woodpecker which
he is careful not, to overlook. Tho

A Bunch <>f Bachelor!.
Here is a statement made to    Tha
Ihiald by a  Went worth County man
a day or two ago:
"Within a radius of two miles from
my farm there live seventeen old
bachelors, each of whom is owner of
at hast one hundred ucres of land."
Tho speaker himself is an old bachelor, and is in very comfortable circumstances.
His remark is suggestive of several
things. It suggests one reason for tho
poor showing made by Ontario in
thc census returns. It suggests ono
reason why the birth rate in Ontario
is so low. it suggests the unpleasant
possibility that marriage is growing
less popular than it used to be.—

WOMEN AND THE COUNTRY.
Dislike  It Because lliey Do Not Get Their
Shure of Its Cuins.
The great weakness in the social
gain of the farming population is
that the women have not shared
proportionately in the improvement
of conditions. The conveniences of
city life are of especial value to the
women, who profit enormously in
their domestic work by the advancement in conditions, und suffer fewer
drawbacks than do the men. For
these the lack of means or exercise,
tlie enforced abstinence from the
whole round of pleasure
associated with the horso,
the deprivation of a number
of the must innocent forms uf
sport, are a fairly heavy price to
pay for the si reel car and the waterworks; but these are deprivations
little felt by women. <hi the farm
the improvements in labor-saving de-
vires have done littlo for the domestic side of life. The cooking range
11111} have replaced lhe stove, all occasional furnace may be seen, fllrni-
Luro may be more satisfactory, but
all these are small improvements
compared with the abolition of the
scythe and ihe pitchfork by the self-
binder, ihe mower, the horse rake,
the hayfork and a bust ui" such inventions. Tin- farmer daily handles
appliance after appliance of the
most delicate and cniciont nature to
lessen his toil: lhe farmer's wife
still finds her work as [aligning, as
exacting, almost confining as ever,
slill is obliged to carry water from
th-1 well, still iiutsi. iii must cases,
b.d.e I.i-i- bread—although the baker's
carl is sometimes seen un ihe side
lines—st-ll is miles awny from the
nearest shop. It is the women, not
lhe men, who ace the must dissatisfied wiib country life to-day. The
men ace awakening to a Sense of the
Independence ol their position, and
have learned that mercantile enterprise is nut a sure or an easy road
to wealth. The women are suffering
under primitive conditions of life,
iheir restlessness Increased by tbeir
growing knowledge of the comforts
placed in the possession uf tholi sis-
tecs in the city. Two things are
necessary for tho revolution to be
complete. One is for the fanners to
realize   thai   their   womenfolk      havo
dropped behind thein iu ihe amelioration of tho conditions of their life.
Another is that manufacturers
should realize that a new class of
well-to-do consumers is opened up,
and set. themselves to the study of
domestic life in tho country so as to
meet ils needs as sufficiently ns the
needs of tho male workers have boon
met. Some day this will bo done,
and then the revolution wull bo complete. Wero the domestic conditions
bolter, almost the last of the attractions of the village over country life
would disappear.—Frederick Hamilton.
Were the conditions of women's life
in the country, as described by Mr.
Hamilton, bettor, wo believe that
not only would the migration to tho
town bo stopped, but a distinct
movement back to the land would bo
seen. As was pointed out in an article quoted in Ihis column a week
or so ago, the worker is seeking relief for his over-strung nerves as never before, by getting away from the
turmoil of the city to the quiet and
beauty of the country. Willi electric railways spinning along the
main highways there is no reason
why a man whose occupation is in
town should nut combine with it tho
life of a fanner. Then  there     are
many wdio have retired from business altogether. With isolation removed by electric communication,
rural mail delivery, and rural telephone:-:, it seems to us ihat to set
up a country place would be much
preferable to living in cramped town
quarters. All this appeals to the
man. llii't he has only to suggest
buying a farm and taking up his re-
sidence there, to have his intended
action n I with tho strongest disapproval of his wife and his daughters. They, are unable to look on
tho change iu tho way ho dues. If
be is lo continue his business in tho
City, be will lind iho quiet of the
country restful after the rush and
noise of tho day. But ho is told it
will be different for those who have
to stand rural quiet, with only occasional relief. If he is to make
farming his only occupation, they
cannot  take tho  same  interest   that
[ lu- does in tiie operations of the
place. Their work is to be drudgery
compared with what it was in Hie
city. The      cry   of   "Back   to   tho
laud!" is not likely to become much
more than a cry till something is
done to make the women more anxious than they are at present to forsake town life—Woodstock Sentinel-

A Canndlau   'Clearing."
Ono can never realize what, work
and difficulties had to In- faced by
the earliest pioneers in Canada until one has occular evidence of what
ll ne-.ins to make a "clearing." I saw
a specimen of work uf lhe kind In the
woods adjoining Killlccranko, on
Lake Joseph, yesterday, end I think
I shall always appreciate the real
hard labor involved much more thoroughly when I see trim, smooth
paths, edged with largo boulders,
running through the pretty open
woods, such as may be seen on several of the Islands here. The big boulders and rocks, lhe tangle of underbrush, the thick growth of small
birches and of other trees make such
nn undertaking seem well-nigh hopeless as one views a place of the kind
in advance. No wonder that many of
the boys and mon return to town
with muscles well developed and appetites UnUSUally keen when thoy
havo spent part of the Muskoka holiday in tills necessary work. Tho
Improvement effected in the end. however, is quite well worth the efforts
expended.—Lally Bernard, in The

Some SiiK„'<-xiliina Ahout the Plnmb-
Iiir nnd the Care Thnt Should Be
Exercised In the Avoldnnce Both of
Expense and IIlHengc.
Nowadays tho plumber and his bill
nre your true household specters. Like
other specters, careful common sense
will put them to rout and confusion
nine times in ten. Wise men have been
studying this subject ever so long to
devise plumbing that would take care
of itself, but they have not yet succeeded. Neither nre they likely to
without a revolution In mechanics
whereby the tendency of fluids always
to seek their own level may be eliminated nntl other things as wonderful
brought to pass, ho long as knowledge
remains nearly static so long will it
behoove every housemlstress to look
well to the usage of her pipes and hor
traps.
A bit of rag or even string, a burnt
match, a wisp of hair, seems a very little thing, one that the pipes can carry
off with no possible hurt, but the rag,
by hanging over the bond of the trap,
may servc^is a siphon to takeaway the
water seal, which Is all that stands between the household and unlimited
sewer gas. And tho rag may keep on
doing It for weeks and weeks until
deadly disease Is rampant.
A string snarled nnd twisted may
work the same ill. Tho match end, of
course, ought to float awny harmless,
but is very much likelier to be caught
In some eddy of the Hush water, jammed into a crevice and there to take to
Itself other solid particles until they
form a clot both offensive and dangerous.
As for hair, there Is no end to the
bartn It harbors. A wisp quickly forms
Itself Into a sort of strainer, catching
nnd holding nil that passes. Aside
from that. It has a trick of lodging in
the most Inconvenient places, catching
upon the least roughness Inside tho
pipe nnd staying there until hy accretion it has clogged the whole space.
Hair has special affinity for bits of
soap. Solid soap, by the way, should
never be sent dowu the pipes. Very
strong soapsuds oven is objectionable
unless you follow !t with a Hood of
clean wator. preferably hot water.
Coffee grounds and tea leaves either
clog a pipe very soon or else. If tho
Hush wnter prevents that, wear It
through quickly, partly by mechanical
action, partly by chemical. Neither
should ever bo permitted In a sink.
Even If you are wise enough to keep
out all grease, and thus make sure that
the grounds shall get safe away from
your own pipes, in the sewer they may
COUIO in contact With grease from pipes
less carefully kept antl cake and clog
your whole pipe g>Htoiu, making nooos-
snry costly and Inconvenient unclog-
gljig.
Every kitchen ought to havo Us grease
can, emptied once a week in winter
and In summer every three dnys. All
sorts of refuse fat should go into it.
oven the scrapings from plates nnd
dishes. Creasy water, as from boiling
hams or corned beef, should be allowed
to cool thoroughly, then have the
prense carefully laken off before it goes
down the pipes. Stkillets and frying
[inns ought tn he (llled with very hot
suihi water and hi stand half an hour
belore washing. This gives time for
the soda to partly snponlfy the grease
and keep it from slicking to the pipe
or caking on tup of the trap.
In scouring faucets be careful to keep
the scouring gl'H out of tho joints.
Keen the finest particles cut away
screw threads turning many times a
day. After scouring also take care to
let the water run at least a minute before catching any I'm- use. In wash-
lug sandy vegetables, as spluach, turnips, potatoes, use a big pan nnd drain
off the dirty water, so the sand may be
caught. Even a spoonful or sand go-
lug down a pipe will cut and wear it
more than a hogshead of water.
Milky water is one of the hardest
things to manage. Even a small quantity daily fouls pipes unless the milky
water Is followed by a Hushing of soda
water moderately strong, with a time-
water Hush about every three dnys.
The liniewater is made more effective
by adding salt to It Sea salt Is best.
l'ut a lump as big as the fist In an
earthen or wooden vessel along with
twice the bulk of quicklime and cover

sink may be kept sweet and fresh.
SAGE ADVICE OF A FATHER.
CnnnHcl Thnt  All  Yonng Men Entering BumIiichm  Should  Heed.
"My sou," said the fond but wise
parent, "you are leaving me to go out
Into thc world. I have nothing to give
you but advice. Never toll a lie. If you
wish to put one in circulation, get it
published. A lie cannot live, but it
takes ono a blamed long time to fade
out of print
"Always rond your contract. A man
might consider bo was getting a sinecure if he were offered a position picking blossoms oil a century plant; but,
you see, he wouldn't have a remunerative occupation If he were paid on
piecework.
"lie not Overcrltlcol. Even thc most
ordinary sort of a genius can tell when
the other fellow is making a fool of
himself.
"Remember that thc young man, like
tlio angler's worm, is rather better for
being visibly alive.
"Be careful in tlio choice of your surroundings. Environment will do a groat
deal for a man. For example, flour and
Wator in a china jug is cream sauce; In
a pall on the sidewalk it Is billstlcker's
paste.
"Don't forgot that there's a time for
everything and that everything should
be done In Its proper time. Never hunt
for bargains in umbrellas on a rainy
day.
"You may make enemies. If you
know who they are, don't mention
them. Silence is golden. It saves the
money that might otherwise be spent
in defending a libel suit. If you don't
know wdio they nre—well, abuse lavished on a concealed enemy is like charity Indiscriminately bestowed. It's a
good thing wasted."-
Tho most satisfying things in lifo are
love and sympathy. But those, like
fame, must come spontaneously nnd indirectly if thoy come nt nil nnd not be
sought ns a specific end or direct aim in
themselves.

When   the  Japanese   peasants   get
themselves up for a pilgrimage to a
city for the purpose of hying In a stock
of finery, they present the quaintest appearance Imaginable. The women generally tuck up their petticoats well
above their knees, either leaving the
legs bare or else swathing them In
white bandages which form a kind of
leggings. Their hair is done lu the usual elaborate Japanese style, and generally an artificial flower Is stuck hi at
the top. It does look comic to see the
wizened face of nu old woman with a
large red nose hobnobbing over it. And
this (local decoration is not confined to
the women. When you meet a party of
pilgrims, you often see tbe old men also
with a flower stuck coquettlshly above
the ear.
At Nagano It appears that many o£
the poor old dears from the country get
so bewildered by the magnificence of
the places tbey go to and the distractions of shopping that they quite lose
their heads and consequently their
way. So the ever thoughtful Japanese
police have insisted that every party of
pilgrims Is to have a distinguishing
badge. At Nagano It was the commonest thing possible to see some ancient
dame rushing about wailing: "Where is
my party? Where Is the purple iris
party?" or "Where Is the yellow towel
round the neck party?" And then she
would be told that "yellow towel round
the neck party" was on Its wny to the
station or that the "purple Irises" were
still saying their prayers in the temple.

A Joy and Treasure When Gootl Nature- and Healthy.
All children in every home in the
country need at some time or other
a medicine such as Baby's Own Tablets, and this famous remedy has
cured many a serious illness and
saved many a little life. Mothers
insist upon having it because it contains no opiate or harmful drugs. It
is purely vegetable, sweot ami pleasant to take and prompt in its effect.
For simple fevers, colic constipation, disordered stomach, diarrhoea,
irritation accompanying the cutting
of teeth and indigestion, Faby's Own
Tablets are a certain cure. In fact
in almost any disorder common to
children these tablets should be given
at once and relief may be promptly
loolo-d for.
Never give the babies so-called
soothing medicines which simply put
them into an unnatural sleep. These
tablets are small, sweet, pleasant to
take and prompt in acting. Dissolved in water, they will be taken readily by the smallest infant.
Mrs. John McIDwan, Uathurst Village, N. B., writes : "My baby was
almost constantly troubled with colic.
before 1 gave him Baby's Own Tablets, but sinco giving them to him he
hits not since suffered. Every mother
should keep these Tablets always at
hand."
They cost 25 cents a box. You
can find them at your druggist's or,
if you do not, forward the money
direct to us and we will send the
tablets prepaid. The Dr. Williams'

When a man waters his own lawn, he
does it from choice and enjoys the work
as a pastime. Tin- one Ion- referred to
was having a particularly good time tok-
ing aim nt the dandelion tops, training
the stream ou them aud knocking them
off.
Ilis wife eame hy wny of the side of
the house to visit with him and cheer
him on in the g id work. Just as she
made the turn hy the steps the hose
hurst through a spot that had heen weakened hy dragging over the ground, and
the gue-hiug water lirst blinded her for
the time, while it proceeded to take the
curl out of her crimps.
It is unnecessary to piove that she let
out a terrific scream or that her husband
turned suddenly to see what had happened. In doing so lit whirled the nozzle
with bis body, and this time the water
went all over her with impartiality
There were two screams in rapid succession. The ctiniiuihlli'fl worser half
threw the stream above her head, and it
went merrily through tho wide open window of the next door neighbor.
That window went dowu wilh a slam
tbat sounded like tbe explosion of a
giant firecracker and shook the block.
As a perverse fate would bave it. the best
fellow of tbe neighbor's daughter wns
calling just at this time. It is unfortunate tbat be is excitable and nervous.
Even a stoical philosopher will make
seine sign when banged unexpectedly in
tbe ear with a stream of oold water moving at the rate of tiO miles nn hour. He
jumped to within a few Inches of the
ceiling, gave a very fine imitation of a
warwlioop, and then tried to jam tbat
window through the foundation.
It has been told just -10 times how the
accident occurred, how unintentional it
was, and how sorry the perpetrator of
tbe cold douse is, but the girl's eyes
twinkle with suppressed mirth whenever
they meet, and as long as this is the case
he is figuring to get good and even wilh

A Zulu chief, when you enter his hor-

nil- seems quite unconscious of your
presence. At length he snys In a tone
of grave dignity, "tlo saku bona" (1
see you), to which you reply In the
same wny. The longer be takes to "see
you" the greater man you are supposed
to be, and until you are thus "seen"
you must keep silent and appear as
much as possible not to be there at all.
