Perhaps Rhodesia was the ancient

but the thaory is strongly comba.od

gold wer.ings are the ba. is cf modem workings. For e\ey ten square
nii'cs of Rhodesia there was ono ancient mine, that is, there era 75.000
old holes, whiih means that a. stupendous wealth was dug out''of the

Constable McMillan of Clinton
brought)'over Henry Brown, for
assaulting Mr. Gillen, of Pavilion
Mountain, by striking him ami
throwing him down, the information lieing laid before Sidney
Williams, .1. P. of Quesnelle, who
is at present surveying for tlie
farmers in the vicinity of Pavilion. Constable Minty also has a.
surprise tor Brown, in the shape
uf nn information laid against,
him for supplying Johnny Dick,
au Indian, with liquor, 011 which
•lie got hopelessly drunk hereon
Dominion Bay. Brown escaped
for the time.liy striking out for
Bog Creek, without waiting for
Dick to sober up, and fearing he
would  tell  who supplied  him.
Andrew Brown, a brother, is
idso wanted on a similar charge
of supplying liquor to Indians.
Henry's trial is tomorrow at ten
o'clock.

They find their way up stream
into the yawning gates and onward to the weir across the outlet, of the lake, but backing or
drifling down stream again they
do not find the narrow opening
on  the point of each   trap.
Some skeptics say the salmon
do not die after spawning, the
fourth year, as an odd specimen
is secured with apparent marks'
of gill netting from last year but
here among the imprisoned ones
it is seen that they cannot survive any wound. Many have a
sore nose from the restraining
dam, aud it does not heal.
A breakwater between the upper and lower dams provides a
resting place when they get tired
of trying to find a way out, and
at daylight, they organize a
rush from here, which makes the
heavy timbers tremble in the
weir. A regular fence had to be
constructed along it to keep the
more active ones from leaping
into Seton Lake.
To provide for the probability
of a greater quantity of fish than
could be accommodated here, a
weir was made at the upper end
of the lake, to hold all that were
released here. The steamer took
8 or 10 men, provisions, tents,
and materials and tools, making
two trips of it. The busy time
of spawning will commence here
some time next  week.
Inspector Babcoek is camping
along the river near Hope, and
observing conditions there with

Madam,
1 beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 5th
inst., with reference to your son's
examination. In reply I may
isay that your son passed the examination as far as qualifying
for a certificate is concerned, but
as he did not take Latin, would
not lie able to take up the Intermediate work iu a High
School. With the standing now
obtained, your son will be entitled to apply for a Teacher's
Third Class Certificate valid for
three years, when he reaches the
age of 18 years.
I have the honor to be, Madam,
Your obedient servant,
Alexander Robinson,

The Australian Commonwealth
finds itself conf.onted by a now
problem, says the Sydney correspondent of The London .'lobe..- Under
thc dictation of the Labor Party the
Federal Government has adopted a
policy intended to discourage immigration of every description, whito
as well as colored, into the Federated States, and at the snme time it
has to deal with a rapidly declining
birth rate, which, ii not speedily
remedied, will result in a largely lie-
creased population. HecenQy published statistics show that the lowest
Australian birth rate is only three
per one thousaiid above that of
France. A few years ago it was considerably higher; but the real decline
is shown by the total number of
births in wedlock compared with the
number of wt.1r.0n of child-be.ring
ago. Without going into statistical
details it may be mentioned that in
New South Wales, between 1880 and
1901, the number of married women
increased by 63,219, while the number of children born in 1901 was almost the same as in 1S87. Taking
the whole Commonwealth and New
Zealand there are annually twenty
thousand fewer births than there
would have been had the birth rates
of ten years ago been maintained.
This shows a decline of two hundred
thousand in the natural increase of
Australian population during the decade.
It has also been ascertained that
the average marriage age of Australasian women is steadily advancinji.
In 1881 it was twenty-two and a
half years; in 1901 it was twenty-
four years. This is regarded as an
indication of a tendency to accept
with reluctance the responsibilities of
the mariiage state; that the Australasian declining birth rate is due less
to physical incapacity than to individual unwillingness. The New South
Wales Government statistician, in
connection with those very facts, ru-
oiarks: "There have been very striking changes in the (birth) rates for
the periods mentioned, and a persistent and astonish in*, decline anions
women of every class. It would seem
that an increasingly large number of
women make up their minds not to
have children, or to delay child-bearing as long as possible. After each
miccossivo confinement, an incrcas'iie.
proportion of women, still of child-
bearing age, cease to give birth to
any more children, and the extraordinary condition of things has now
come'to pass that the fertility of
women who have had two children
is less than that of women who, in
1891, had nine children." There is
ao necessity for going into details,
the broad facts are sufficient; but
1 here is one point which has become
overlooked by all concerned in the
enquiry, and that is that the decline
in the Australasian birth rate practically commenced with tho discouragement of over-sea immigration,
which was a means of systematically
Infusing fresh blood into Australasia.
The increasing reluctance of Australasian women to accept the r«>-
tponsibilities of maternity is trace-
nble to several causes, one of tho
principal being thc increasing love of
pleasure. The numerous holidays and
1.ers?ned hours of labor have strengthened the popular taste for outdoor
tmusement and weakened the feeling
«n favor of household en.ioyment.
Then the warm, sunny climate has a
somewhat enervating effect on tho
.oung.r population, which seems to
pass the greater part of its existence
in the open air. All this assists In
loosening the ties of domestic life.
There is too much holidayniaking and
too little Industrial occupation.

Engineer of the line has completed a reconnaissance survey, as far up as Ft. McLeod.
This line will give connection with the railway coming west from Edmonton and
provide more direct communication with a portion
of the Territories now being

Th«u-ono-liIy   As!ut_;:ie'l.
Dean Farrur, who was at one time
head master of Marlborough College,
had whal. one ok his boys, who Willi's of him in Cornhiil, calls "the
great manner." Therefore, he waa
admired nnd reverenced-, and sometimes gently smiled ai. Often,
in        his        teaching, his       mind
wandered to other things while
he mechanically repeated lhe
statement which the lesson demanded. It happened., too, that he sometimes forgot how often ho had saiu
a thing important enough to be ul
torod more than once. The bo*. *
noticed tliis, and were sometimes
tempted to play upon his unsuspicious nature; but whenever any cf
them led him ii.io the trap, they
were always speedily sorry lor it,
During one term there were weelwy
lessons in the Septuagint, where the
Creek words for "wbrd" and work"
aie interchanged, Regularly every
Monday morning the dean would explain this confusion in the words;
••The reason why ergon is used hen*
instead of logos is that it is a
translation of tho Hebrew word da-
bar, whiih means both 'word' and
■tiling.' "
Tho Inst monosyllables would como
rolling out, in the grand mariner,
like the boom of a great bell
One morning a light-minded boy
whispered to another, "Wo have not
hud dabar yet.   .Shall
•'Do, if you date."
"If you please, sir,'
ehievous  one,   "why
instead' of logos,  in the passage just
translated?"
"Ah," replied the master, "you
could not be expected to know lhat.
The reason is—" and forth rolled ihe
usual  explanation.
To soe the dean walk with stately
tread into the open trap was not too
small a joke to please a schoolboy.
There was a moment of suppressed
delight, but succeeding that a remorseful silence; and after the session the boy-joker was begged by his
fellows never to repeat the jest.
Xo schoolmaster was ever more
sensitive to poor results than wan
this one. At a certain history lesson, when a bov had failed to answer some trifling question, the
master dung down his book und exclaimed, "IUy dear boys! 1 am profoundly discouraged. For fifteen
years "of my life 1 have been letting
down a bucket into an empty well,
and drawing it up again. For fit-
teen years of my life I have been
pouring out water upon the arid
sand." Then he gathered up hi3
books and fled.
A few hoys laughed. The others
fried, "Shame! shame!" on those
who did it. Anel the next lesson
was splendidly prepared.
