THE WEEK, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 35, 1909
One Dollar Per Annum
As was anticipated, the Vic-
/ictoria's toria  Exhibition lias been
Fair- very successful, and the at
tendance and general pat-
lonage have been   very   large.     At this
if ri ting figures are not yet available of
■ither the full attendance or the financial
leturns, but those who saw both towns-
leoplc and visitors flocking day after day
the grounds will have little doubt that
|hese, when published, will be satisfactory,    Not for the first time The Week-
las to compliment the management of the
C. Agricultural Association on the ex-
ellent arrangements made for the com-
3rt and amusement of the public, and of
he admirable order which was maintained,
fhe one crumpled rose leaf in a week's
ajoyment has been the weather which
In several   days   was   cold and windy,
hough not wet.    On Citizens' Day, how-
Iver, the weather clerk relented and both
ifternoon and evening were perfect.   The
lisplay of fruit Avas much better than
Iome of the reports of the general failure
If this year's crop on the Island would
lave indicated.   While the severe weather
If the past winter, and the abnormally
[old and late Spring, undoubtedly stood
In the way of our usual large crops, there
■was nevertheless a magnificent display of
lie products of the orchard at the exposi-
(ion, a display well calculated to impress
Jpon  the  visitor  the  great  advantages
■vhich Vancouver Island offers to the fruit
rrower.   Taken altogether, this year's exposition is a. very satisfactory and suc-
lessful one.
A great deal of comment
■Explanation
/anted.
has been aroused by the action of the Victoria post-
office in closing both  the
Itamp wicket and the delivery wicket for
be whole afternoon   on   Citizens' Day,
Thursday.    That  no  mistake  might be
iade by   the   aggrieved   and astonished
■jmblic, a notice in manuscript on a four-
ach square of yellow paper was posted
ly the side of each wicket, announcing
■hat it was closed on account of the civic
lioliday.   This is a very remarkable proceeding and  swift  explanations  are  in
Jrder, and will be awaited with interest.
Che Victoria Postoffice is a part of the
'ostal System of the Government of the
)ominion of Canada, and it is news to
nost people that its actions and conduct
Ire either controlled by or amenable to
lhe observance of purely local holidays
Jir festivities in this or that district of
■he Dominion.    To speak plainly, in the
pbsencc of better information, the closing
ff these wickets on Thursday looks like
piece of colossal impudence, and The
iVeek, in common with the rest of Victoria, would very much like to know by
■jvhose authority such a remarkable step
■/as taken.   The town was full of American tourists, an excursion of between 600
Ind 1,000 having come in from Belling-
liam alone, in   addition   to   the   regular
lieavy traffic, and these unhappy persons
Ivere hunting all over the town for postage stamps.   They   bought   up   all they
lould get in cigar stores and hotels, but
There were not nearly enough to go round,
Ind the observations of the visitors on
luch a state of affairs were loud, deep,
luerulous and profane.   It is this sort of
Thing, this cool indifference to official rules,
Ind unbusinesslike neglect of the interests
If the public, which have got Victoria the
lame of being a sleepy, unbusiness-like,
back-number town. It is doubtful whether
there is another city in the Dominion
where public Government officials would
have ventured to carry out such a proceeding, or where the public would have
for one instant have tolerated it.
Scarcity
Of Labour.
While the Trades and
Labour Congress, in session
at Montreal, is engaged in
passing all manner of resolutions aiming to shut the gates of Canada
against every man, woman or child, from
all parts of the Dominion, comes the cry
of the scarcity of labour. The return of
good times has naturally brought about an
expansion of all industrial operations, and
the universal call now is for men to assist
in those operations. It is not merely in
the big undertakings and industries that
there is a scarcity of labour, such as the
Grand Trunk Pacific construction and the
harvesting of the enormous wheat crop in
the Middle West. The same scarcity of
men is experienced by municipal authorities and by the small farmer and employer. It is not at all a question of
wages, for the wages are good. The matter is simply that the men are not here
for the work, that the development of a
growing and wealthy country is being hindered by the scarcity of labour, and that
such a condition of things calls for prompt
action before it grows worse. And yet in
the face of these facts, the Trades and
Labour Congress are endeavouring to build
a wall to shut out the labour without
which the development of Canada must,
even if it does not come to an absolute
standstill, have a most grievous check put
upon its glorious career and national advancement.
Leave It
Alone.
It is strange how our intelligent City Fathers prefer to
discuss any other point in
connection with Victoria's
water supply than the question of securing
that supply from Sooke.   They have been
repeatedly asked on all hands to procure
and lay before the public the fullest and
most complete information on this subject:
but, no matter how much or how hard
you try to pin them down to this oue
most necessary requirement, they persis.
in flying off at a tangent to some other
matter.   The latest by-path which has attracted their fairy footsteps is a nebulous
scheme to enlarge the watershed of Elk
Lake—at a great price of course.    This
is the limit, and provides a lamentable
illustration  of the old-time  indissoluble
conjunction   between   Ephraim   and   his
idols.   Elk Lake has been so long a standby of every Vietoria City Council, that,
their heavy intellects are unable to separate themselves from it to attend to any
new source of water.     In the name of
common   sense,   gentlemen  of   the   City
Council, leave Elk Lake alone, and get
down to business and do what you were
told and paid for.    You have been ordered to immediately procure full and correct information on the question of securing a permanent and adequate water supply for the City of Vitcoria from Sooke.
You were also ordered to do this with tne
least possible delay.   Now be goocl enough
to carry out your instructions  at once,
without any more dodging and twisting.
Victoria, has endured the eccentricities of
you and your sort for many years, and
popular  long-suffering   has   pretty  well
reached the end of its tether.
The Week cannot cougratu-
Not Very |att* the ladies of the Vic-
Wise, toria W. C. T. U. on the
wisdom of their decision to
boycott the exhibition this week, on the
grounds of the betting that goes on at the
horse racing there. A protest is one thing,
the boycott is another, and it is a weapon
more generally employed by a class of persons with whose actions we should be sorry
to couple our Victoria fair ones. We do
not in the least, question the sincerity of
the action of the W. C. T. IL, but we
think it is both imprudent, uncharitable
aud unreasonable. The lady members
may not approve of betting, but there are
pleiity of very excellent persons of both
sexes in Victoria, quite as upright in
tlieir daily lives as any member of the
W. C. T. IL, who see no harm in betting
on a race course, and who have a perfect
right to the exercise of their opinion.
Dear ladies, there is no law against betting
in Canada, and surely you ought to have
sense enough to realize the fact that a
thing is not necessarily wrong merely because you yourselves believe it to be so.
No single body or organization of people
has any right in this free country to force
its opinions upon its neighbours. One
man's meat is another man's poison, and
one woman's rice pudding is another woman's face powder. Go and read St. Paul
on the subject. There must be a little
give-and-take of opinions in this wicked
world, or else we should all be at each
other's throats. You have not strengthened
your hands for good by your actions this
week.
The Big
Crop.
This week has seen the first
cargoes of the tremendous
wheat crop of Western Canada arrive at Montreal,
and over 100,000 bushels are now on their
way to the sea-board. So far, it is pleasant to be able to note that the crop is
being handled in record fashion, and that
every possible effort is being put forward
to expedite its shipment. All doubts as
to the size and quality of the 1909 crop
are now at an end—it is a record one on
both points. It had been confidently
hoped that a large portion of this crop
would have moved through Vancouver,
thus taking the Pacific route for distribution to the world's markets. This idea,
however, was an innovation, and, although
some portion of the crop will undoubtedly
move via the Pacific sea-board, it will not
do so in anything like the degree that was
hoped for a few weeks ago. The project
has been got under way, however, and a
vear or two at most will in all probability
see the Pacific sea-board of Canada as
husy with elevators and grain-carriers as
lie.' Atlantic ports.
Fire
Insurance.
A notable event of the past
week has been the decision
adopted at a meeting held
at Montreal on Monday of
representatives of the leading insurance
companies doing business in Victoria to
adopt, the recommendation of the Vancouver Island Board of Fire Underwriters to
reduce the rates in this city. This is thc
gratifying result of the improvements
which Victoria has made during the past
two years in her system of fire protection.
These improvements may be briefly
summed up as thc increase in the fire department apparatus, the installation of the
salt water high pressure system, the increased efficiency of the fire brigade under
the capable superintendence of Fire Chief
Davis, and the improved fresh water pres
sure in the city. It will thus be seen that
the reduction has been fully and fairly
earned and the citizens are to be congratulated upon their energy in adopting and
following out the progressive policy which
has had so gratifying an outcome. Both
to the business men and to the investors
of Victoria the change means a good deal.
Another exhibition is tak-
The Nelson jUg place this week, this
Fair- time at Nelson, in the in
terior, whose seventh annual
exhibition was formally opened on Wednesday by Mr. J. H.' Schofield, M.P.P.
Reliable information from our correspondents states that the fair is on a scale
surpassing anything of the kind ever previously attempted in the interior of the
Province, the attendance being very large,
and the exhibits the greatest on record. It
is worthy of note, as showing the strides
being made in the development of the
Kootenays, that the two principle exhibits
are fruit and mineral and that they are
racing each other for prominence.
Light
Wanted
Tliere is one thing in connection with the horse show
which very badly requires
adjustment, and that is the
question of lighting. The animals are excellent and well handled and in all respects but this the show is deserving of
all praise, but the large building is
shrouded in a funereal gloom which very
literally throws the best efforts of horse
and man into the shade. Surely some
system of sky lights for the day time and
some better arrangement of the nocturnal
illumination might be devised. We commend the matter to the attention of those
in authority at the Horse Show, with the
remark that the darkness robs them of
much of the credit which is their due.
Island
Growth
One more important evidence of the rapid advance
to the front of Vancouver
Island occurred this week
in the sale of some 54,000 acres of timber
land in Cowichan Valley to American capitalists by the E. & N. Railroad, the details
of the transaction being closed on Wednesday at Vancouver by Sir Thomas Shaugh-
nessey, President of the C. P. R. It is
stated that as a result of the sale of this
large tract of timber, the E. & N. railway
will next summer commence the construction of a branch line some twenty-two
miles in length from Cowichan Bay to
the foot of Cowichan Lake, by means of
which all timber in the Cowichan Valley
and district tributary thereto will be rendered accessible. This is a very important
piece of news, and, it is stated on very
good authority, is the forerunner of additional developments on a large scale affecting the enormous timber areas of the
.Nitinat Valley.
The editor of the Nelson
Bouquet. Uaily   News   proudly   an
nounces that he is the recipient of a beautiful bouquet. The outside
world always knew that Nelson was a desirable place to live in, but hardly realized
that it was bed of roses for editors. The
two most notable of recent years, John
Houston and F. J. Deane, have shaken
the dust from off tlieir feet as a testimony against the inhospitableness and in-
appreciativeness of the Capital of the
Kootenay. The lines appear to have fallen
in more pleasant places for tlieir successor,
and the readers of the Daily News will
expect that as a natural consequence optimism will reign supreme, and a carnival
of flowers will become the established
custom. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1909
At The Street   a)
Corner
,      By. TttP.LOUNOEK
While    strolling    up    Government
Street    last    Friday    I  happened    to
,   tOVi.lg ,-■■•,., .   ,
glance in  Baker s shoe store window
and noticed some lace. The oddness
of seeing lace displayed in a shoe
store prompted me to investigate. I
was informed, and recognized it to
be genuine English lace; worked by
hand in Buckinghamshire, England.
Ib is interesting not only to Victorians, but to visitors, to see this lace.
You have no doubt heard from your
parents and grand-parents of the old
fashioned farm labourers who live in
their thatched cottages in the Old
Country, and of the women they remember seeing in the doorways with
their chamy pillows making lace.
These lace makers have in many
cases never been out of their particular village less it is to attend a village club feast, for the old fairs are
now almost a thing of the past, their
place being taken by the village club
feast when the inhabit? nts of the village join with visitors from adjacent
hamlets in merry-making. The Club
Feast or as it is often termed "Gang
Feast," is held once a year. The boys
and girls in service and at work in
other cities all return to the "Gang
Feast." Fair men bring their merry-
go-rounds, cocoanut shies and atalls
of the most old fashioned type. The
band engaged by the club gives the
villagers and visitors a great treat,
for the country folks are very fond
of dancing, and some of them are indeed beautiful dancers in their quaint
old style. I would willingly give ten
dollars to attend one of these good
old village fairs and dances, in that
grand old land. After the fair is
over they all go back to their hum
drum life, the man to the plough and
the woman to her lace-making if she
is lucky enough to have an order on
hand. They are not in a position to
make the lace and keep it on hand.
On looking at the old ladies one really
wonders how they can make this
dainty lace, for they are coarse (not
in manner) and their hands are un-
monnoly large. About one hundred
years ago work was so scarce that
four labourers were known to have
taken pillows and started to make
this lace. The reason that these laces
are so dainty and fine is that it is
never necessary to touch the lace with
the hands—they simply twist the knot
and platt the thread, which is wound
at the end of the bobbin by holding
the bobbins in the hands and pinning
up each to the cushion and so on
until they have done a "down," as it
is called by them; then they have the
difficult task of rolling up their lace,
which they do on a piece of Cardboard, but the trouble is to remove
these dozens of pins and to keep their
Heavy bobbins for they are each one
weighted with coloured beads to prevent; .them from dragging their unfinished lace; this is done by gathering
u,p, ,fi, number of bobbins and then
placing; them in a linen bag while the
process of relixing the lace onto the
parchment (which is fastened very
tightly on to the pillows) in the right
pin holes. When the length ordered
is complete one cannot wonder al
iheir being delighted.
;THe ■introduction of lace is said to
haws been first introduced into the
Midlands of England hy Queen Cath-
ei;)^?,(.pf Arragon and developed by
tjja Flemish refugees in the sixteenth
century until it is now carried on by
thfe'farm labourers, wives and their
daughters1.11

Btick^ul'oiiit Ground is thc finest and

The great Dramatist affirms that "It takes experience to
make one wise."
.Many a man hae continually called for "A Bottle of Beer"
without mentioning any particular brand. When he has
been supplied day after day with a beer that is highly
charged with carbonic acid gas and sold while yet green,
he wakes up to the fact that something is affecting his
liver. He consults his doctor who declares "A pure,
properly aged Beer is really good for you," and adds "Why
don't you drink Lemp's?" He pays the doctir's fee, but
gains the knowledge that, when properly prepared, barley
and hops are both a food an a tonic to give him more
strength and vitality. He finds the way to be sure of a
good thing is to order Lemp's, which is a pure malt and
Imp brew, not charged with carbonic acid gas and properly
aged for months before being placed on the market—a
beer that has absolutely no bad after-effects. Your Dealer

Paid in Full.
Every element that makes for
greatness and popularity in a play
is contained to a remarkable extent
in Eugene Walter's "Pail in Full,"
which will be at the Victoria Theatre
on Monday, September 27, when the
Wagenhals & Kemper Company offers it with a specially selected New
York cast. Mr. Walter is a pathfinder in American drama. By his
directness and force, by the interest
of his story and the striking characters with which he has related it;
by the elimination of the commonplace and of cut and dried theatrical
tradition, the author has struck a new
line in dramatic writing and created
a new standard. "Paid in Full,'
more than any other play of today,
clutches the sympathy of an audience. The story of Joe Brooks and
his young wife Emma, their struggle
to get along on $18 a week, the weakness that leads the man to theft, the
cowardice that makes him attempt
to use his wife as a means for his
own escape—all is so true to what is
daily taking place about us that it
might be happening right here at this
hour. Vigor, veracity and driving
power carry "Paid in Full" straight
to the heart and understanding of
every person who sees it. It is a salient and secure example of new standards and new methods in modern
drama. Its moments are moments of
life. The coming of this play has
the greater claim on all theatre patrons from the fact that it will be
presented by a brilliant New York
cast, specially chosen to present this
great play in the best possible
manner.
The Cat and the Fiddle.
The attraction at the Victoria
Theatre on Monday, October 4th, will
be the musical extravaganza success,
"The Cat and the Fiddle*.*" .which
deals with magic, sprites, elfs,
gnomes, fairies and a story of the
mythical isle of Eye. It is said to
form a combination that pleases the
most fastidious, and reminds one of
"The Babes in the Woods," "Mother
Goose" and the present success of
the  century,  "Little  Nemo."
"The Cat and the Fiddle" has many
weird and novel stage characters:
The Good Genii and her wonderful
gigantic cat; Queen Circe, the false
queen, who with great gods rules
over the destinies of the mystic
island, and the earth beings who are
spirited away to Elfland; all are said
to contain many new ideas in the line
of musical  comedy.
The plot leads to and permits of a
score or more of pretty ballet evolutions, some 15 musical numbers,
and a bevy of pretty girls well selected and trained, while the costuming is of new design, strikingly
handsome in many cases and decidedly weird in others, in conformity with
the locale of the scenes.
Thc presenting company numbers
forty or more people. The cast is
headed by Mr. Chas. A. Sellon, a
favorite comedian and it is said he
has scored heavily everywhere hc has
thus far been seen. He is ably assisted by those petite comediennes
The El More Sisters, who'se singing
dancing and travesty on "Nearly
Grand Opera," is one of the hits of
thc performance. Lawrence Gotthard,
an animal impersonator of no mean
ability, is the "Cat." Johann Berth-
leson, late of the Shubert Standard
Opera Company, Geo. E. Wakefield,
Florence Willis, Theresa Miller, Mort
Infeld, all among thc principals.
New Grand Theatre.
The Grand, which always has something new and maintains its place as
the leading vaudeville theatre of the
city, will have an up-to-date show
here next week, the imported acts
of which make it one of the highest
priced bills of the  season.
The big attraction is Elsie Grescy
and Company, in a sketch entitled
"Fagin's Pupil," which tells of a
young girl brought up as a thief and
continuing in that life until she falls
in love. Her struggles to forget and
discontinue the past life would fill
books and form a strong and touching story with the heart interest interwoven. The actress is young and
pretty and supported by an excellent
cast and will be a big drawing card.
Another well recommended act
coming is Bella and George Stellings
from London, marvellous hat spinners and comedians. Two thousand
hats are used in the performance and
some of the brightest head creations
of the present fashion are nightly
pulled to pieces and twisted into other
styles, in fact a millinery education is
given ladies.
Charles E. Corby and Lily E. May
will show the ventriloquist and the
dancing doll. This is not the usual
ventriloquist act but something entirely new. It has convulsed many
audiences and will not fail to be a
winner here.
"The Messenger Boy and the Actress" is the vehicle that Maddox and
Melvin will show in. This is a stagy
affair with just enough of the stage
life to make it interesting. There
is an abundance of humor interwoven
and many a good laugh resounds
from the house while the story is being enacted.
Thomas J. Price is billed to sing
"I Couldn't Make a hit with Molly,'
a new song, with seventeen illustrated
pictures.
The motion pictures and the orchestral selection make up the balance
of the bill.

Coming nearer home Mr. Baynes
pointed out that the local hotels provided a home for our miners, who,
when down from the hills are absolutely homeless. The Christian people of the community generally made
no effort to provide any substitute for
the hotels, in the shape of reading
rooms, or innocent amusements, consequently the miners were forced to
stay around the hotels and were deeply scorned for so doing.
In his opinion intemperance and
its attendant evils could not be curbed
by law, or by force, but it could be
dealt with by kindness and persuasion. Such had been his experience,
gathered during many years of hard
missionary work in various fields.
Mr. Baynes, in closing, expressed
in beautifully clothed sentences his
wish that all of good would follow
his hearers.—Kaslo Kootenaian.
Intemperance of the 20th Century.
There was a very fair attendance
at the Eagles' Opera House on Tuesday evening, the occasion being the
delivery of a lecture by Missionary
Baynes, of New Denver, entitled "Intemperance of the 20th Century."
Missionary Bayes, who is an able
and fluent speaker, prefaced his remarks by briefly stating that he was
greatly charmed with Kaslo and Kas-
' _ s attractions. He particularly noted
thai during his stay in the city he
had not observed a single case of
drunkenness, nor heard a single unpleasant word; that he had observed
the Sabbath well kept and a law-
abiding spirit generally most creditable to the town and its citizens. He
intended going home to England
shortly and would deliver a series of
lectures on this section of British
Columbia and would not fail to put in
a good word for Kaslo.
Mr. Baynes then went on to state
that intemperance was not to be found
in the use of any one of the good
things provided by the Creator but
rather in their abuse. Enjoy moderately of all the good things of the
earth and all would be well. In regard to intemperance in the use of
alcohol, Mr. Baynes, pointed out that
quite as many were killed by gluttony
in eating as by gluttony in the habit
of drinking, though no mention was
made of the evils of the former,
though the latter was very strongly
condemned. Intemperance in eating
was as great a crime as interperance
in drinking. "Whatsoever ye do, do
it unto the glory of God."
Motor Cars for Polar Expedition.
Lieut. Shackleton, the leader of the
English expedition to the Antartic
Circle, who begins the story of his
remarkable experiences in McClure's,
writes interestingly of the requirements of campaigns in the Polar region:
"The first essential was a hut for
the winter quarters, since it was proposed that the Nimrod should not
remain in the ice, but should return
to New Zealand after landing the expedition and the stores.
"The hut was constructed of wood
and was taken south in sections, all
carefully marked, so that it could be
erected speedily on arrival at the winter quarters. The outside measurements of the hut were 19 by 33 by 12
feet, and it was insulated with cork
and felt as a protection against the
cold.
"Flour and sweetstuffs, such as
jams, golden syrup, sugar, bottled
fruit and dried fruit, formed a considerable part of our supplies; for in
the intense cold of the Polar regions
there is a natural craving for sweet
things and for such dishes as puddings made withj flour. We had supplies of tinned meat, fish, etc., but we
largely supplemented these by the
use of seal meat during the winter,
as the fresh meat would help to ward
off the bugbear of all Polar explorers
—scurvy. The chief article of food
for the sledging expeditions was pem-
.mican, which we procured from Copenhagen; and in addition we had
several preparations of a special
character, designed to give the maximum of nourishment with a minimum
of weight.
"A new departure was made by the
use of Manchurian ponies and a motor-car. These ponies are probably
the hardiest animals in the world.
They are accustomed to living and
working under conditions of extreme
cold and to travelling over snow and
ice, and their readiness to eat absolutely anything into which they can
get their teeth was often a source of
embarrassment to us. They would
eat their harness or each other's tails
if the least opportunity were presented.
"I secured twelve of these ponies
from a Manchurian village, and after
a long voyage they were landed at
Port Lyttleton in New Zealand. The
motor-car was a New Arroll Johnston, specially adapted to meet the
test of rough travelling in low temperatures and though it could not be
used on the soft snow of the Barrier, it proved of value in drawing
sledges over the sea-ice."
Bright Susie.
Susie (who has been admitted for a
few moments to her mother's afternoon tea)—Do you know why all the
silver here today is like our new servant?
Guest—No.    Why?
Susie—'Cause they're both hired.
His Hope.
"Papa," wrote the sweet girl, "1
have become infatuated with calisthenics."
"Well, daughter," replied the old
man, "if you're heart's set on him I
haven't a word to say; but I always
did hope you'd marry an American."

THAN COAL OR WOOD
Do you know how much time you are wasting in chopping
"kindling" for coal or wood stoves and carrying dusty coal or
ashes backwards and forwards? Do you know that a kitchen
where a Gas Stove is in use is always clean and tidy, spic and
span? Quick as a wink you have your fire without trouble of
building—turn off the gas tap and it is out; drudgery, worry and
money saved. A Gas Bange means the economy of your great-
grandmother, combined with the science of modern invention. Let
us show you how easy and how inexpensive it is to cook with Gas.
Our reasonableness of price for good Gas Ranges and Radiators
will pleasantly surprise you.   Easy terms of payment if desired.
Do you know what comfort there is in good Gas Heat? Do
you know that without any fuss or bother you can quickly warm
a cold room or a chilly hallway with a Gas Radiator or a Gas
Grate? There may be some particular room in your house that
you cannot heat easily with a furnace and impracticable to use a
wood or coal stove. This difficulty is easily overcome with a Gas
Heater. In bedroom, bathroom, living-room, drawing-room, den,
hall or office—anywhere from:attic to basement, Gas Heat will
impart healthful warmth and cosiness at minimum expense. No
smell, no smoke, no dust, no work, but all heat, where you want
and when you want it.   We have good Gas Heaters at all prices.

Itand these laces can be ordered totally and can be made up in collars,

I have put in a large section of the
present   week  lounging  at  the  Vic-
Ibria exhibition, and I must say that
I seldom employed    my   time   with
Biore  pleasure and  profit.    There is
ffie thing that particularly impressed
pie, and that is what I would like to
jail the growth of the Island Farmer,
[have lounged around this neck of
fie woods for some years past, and
Im in a position to know whereof I
■peak, when I say that the farmer of
Vancouver Island is one of the things
that  Island that  have most  em-
b.hatically  advanced  with  the  times.
This is abundantly evident, not merely in the man himself, but in the stock
pe exhibits—and, mind you, the class
Ind condition of a farmer's stock exhibit is a pretty good criterion of the
lort of farm he runs.    You will not
Let  good looking stock off a poorly
tun farm, no matter if you buy pedigreed animals by the yard.   Pedigree
Ind breed are goocl things, but poor
nj_.nagem.ent and lazy and indifferent
mention  will  make the  finest thor-
[iughbred look   no    better   than the
cheapest scrub that ever picked up a
living homeless in the bush.   And the
Itock  of  the  farmers  at the  exhibition   this   week   shows   very   plainly
lareful selection in breeding and the
loud results of skilled treatment and
tomfortable    surroundings.   We   are
learning  more  and  more  in  Canada
■hat the backbone of a country is a
lolid, energetic and industrious agricultural population.     I   noticed   one
■hing in particular, by the way, which
tears out my remarks on the growth
If our farming community.   A year or
two   ago   you   would   find  little  but
Jjr-ade stock amongst  the  cattle—of-
len very good grade, it is true, buf
|till grade.    In this year's exhibition,
think I am correct in saying that
[here  are  only  three  grade  animals
In the entire cattle exhibit, the  rest
|>eing pure bred registered stock.
Another exhibit which was at least
hundred  per  cent,  in  advance   of
lat of former years was the poultry
xhibit.   A large variety of birds was
iliown  in  this  line and a very high
tandard of excellence was noticeable
hrpughout.    The suitability of Van-
ouver Island for poultry raising, and
he great opportunities offered by tlie
urge and increasing markets for all
iroduce  connected therewith, is evi-
lently being fully    realized    by the
;ople.   The high prices ruling stead-
ly   for   chickens  and  for  eggs   have
ftracted   the   attention   of  the   type
f poultry raiser who grudges neither
ime  nor  liard  work  in  catering  to
is market, and this sort of man is
Iready reaping a large reward.   The
ldustfy promises to be a very satis-
;ictory one at an early date,
f   was  agreeably  surprised  by  the
pples.   It is no doubt a fact that the
ast season has not been favorable to
ic  production of the large crop of
lis fruit which is usually looked for
11 Vancouver Island,    but    no fault
Dtild be found with the quality of the
ih'ibits shown.     The   varieties were
many, and each was excellent of its
kind ancl made one's mouth water to'
look at them.
That the root crop this year has
been a very large and satisfactory one
was quite borne out by the exhibits,
many of which were of enormous size,
and all showing excellent appearance.
In view of the increasing demand
from the livestock, and the large
quantities required for city consumption, this is a very gratifying circumstance.
The ladies of Victoria are to be
heartily congratulated on the contents
of the Woman's Building—including
their own fair selves. Both in the
matter of what may be called art
manufactures, and in the matter of
the, to me and most other loungers,
more attractive if more homely subjects of preserves, cakes, confectioneries and good things to eat generally,
their exhibit was a most attractive
one, giving indisputable evidence of
industry, good taste, and thorough
knowledge of the details of manufacture of the different articles.
Pleasant music, comfortable chairs to
sit in, and a cup of good tea, add to
the charms of the exhibit which the
fair sex of Victoria have so creditably arranged.
Turning to the lighter side of
amusements, I lounged through them
with much pleasure and contentment.
I confess to liking a thundering good
dash of swift horses in a well contested race, without having any disposition to worry over the morals of
the jockies or those of my fellow
rail-birds. I like, too, the cannibal
chief from Zululand, where they have
no cannibals, and the amusing side of
fortune telling presents itself in my
frivolous mind rather than its aspect
as an infraction of the criminal code.
I should like also to speak a word of
praise for the gentlemen in the gas
bag with the windmill attachment,
who lounged about at a height of two
or three hundred feet up in the air
with apparently the same ease and
comfort as I, watching him, lounged
on the good, solid earth below. Last
of all, and primary requisite for a successful lounger, my digestion is still
good enough to enable mc to enjoy
watching my fellow citizens enjoying
themselves. And it must be admitted
that everybody, young and old, seemed to bc having a good time. A
lounger's congratulations to the British Columbia Agricultural Association for a pleasant week.

I heard a sound  ot crying ln the lane,
A passionless, low crying;
And I said. "Tt Is the tears of the brown

On the leaves within the lane!

A soft, persuasive sighing;
And   I   said,   "The   summer   breeze   has

OLLA PODRIDA
Queer Critters, We.
We exercise to get up an appetite,
and then are not satisfied until we
get rid of it.
We work hard to get into society,
and then are not hapn" unless we are
asked out.
We labor strenuously to earn a vacation, and we no sooner have it than
we spend it.
The Little Boy's Complaint.
A little boy in Trenton, who has
but recently mastered his catechism,
confessed his disappointment therein
in  the  following  terms;
"Say, dad, 1 obey the fifth commandment and honor my father and
mother, yet my days are not a bit
longer in the land, for I'm put to bed
every night at 7 o'clock just the
same."
Averse to Buttons.
His Wife—"Mrs. Newed's house is
strictly up to date and is equipped
with electric appliances throughout.
All she has to do is touch a button
and almost any desired result is accomplished."
Her Husband—"Well, you would
never be able to get results that way,
my dear."
His Wife—"And why not?"
Her Husband—"Because you seem
to have a horror of touching buttons.   Just look at my clothes!"
How It Happened.
Tjarks—"Who was that sporty
chap in the high hat and diamonds
that spoke to you outside?"
Bjarks—"Don't you know him?
Why, he's a spring poet."
Tjarks—"Spring poet? Mean to say
a spring poet can sport a tall hat and
diamonds?"
Bjarks—"Sure thing! He wrote a
poem on a wogan spring and the
manufacturers are paying him an
opera singer's salary."
Testing His Fortitude.
"Tommy," asked the visitor, "what
are you going to be when you grow
up to be a man?"
"I'm going to be an arctic explorer," responded the bright little boy,
''and now will you give me a quarter?"
"Gracious, Tommy. What do you
want with a quarter?"
"I want to get five ice-cream sodas
and find out how much cold I can
stand."
A New Turn.
Patsy—Condducthor, plaze turn
this seat over.
Con—What for?
Patsy—Didn't yez say th' car was
goin' east?
Con—Yes?
Patsy—Well, I want to go to th'
west side.

FOR CAMPERS.
Don'ts     That     May    Save     Many
Thousand Dollars.
1. Don't, when in the woods, throw
down a lighted match, cigar stub or
other flaming object; make sure that
the flame has been thoroughly extinguished before throwing it away.
2. Don't build your camp fire larger
than is necessary.
3. Don't under any circumstances,
leave your fire unguarded, even for
a comparatively short time; see that
it is dead out before you go away.
4. Don't build your fire in leaves,
rotten wood or other inflammable
material.
5. Don't build your fire against a
large or holly log, where it is hard
to be sure when it has been entirely
put out.
To these "don'ts" it may be added
that in windy weather or in a dangerous place, it is well to confine the
fire in a hole dug clean down to the
mineral soil. A fire may smoulder
in the humus, or "duff" for days, only
waiting for a strong breeze to fan
it into a flame that may burn over
miles of timber.
Summer tourists and campers unfortunately have a bad reputation
among owners of timber as being often a cause of fires. Such fires could
be prevented, almost without exception, by a little extra care on the part
of the campers, who have been the
unintentional cause of much forest
destruction, and who have just as real
an interest in the preservation of the
forests as the owners of the timber
themselves. The rules given above
are the result of long experience and
observation on the part of many
woodsmen and lumbermen as to the
origin of fires from this cause, and
are earnestly commended to the attention of campers, sportsmen and
others.
