A fierce debate has been going on
in the legislature during the past
week on the new school bill, tho opposition using their utmost endeavors to
kill thc proposed legislation. On
Monday afternoon, seeing that there
were five govern ment supporters absent, Hall, of Victoria, moved a six
months' hoist lo the bill, but the motion was defeated bv the, close vote of
l'.l to 17. It was expected by the opposition that the Socialists would bolt
the government, but Ihey stood pat.

New Denver folk are anticipating a
return of good times to their burg this
summer. The completion of tlm waterworks system will, with the electric

the expectation of the Mountain Chief
mine, on Silver  mountain, resuming
operations. It is owned by A. W.

Ore-hauling from the mines has become ;t diilicult  task, a  transfer from

Accordingly the week's output fell

Until Ther Prove Themaelvea to Be
Innocent and Who (tin Be Imprisoned Por Committing  No  Offense.
It used to be a principle of British
law that a man is innocent until he ls
proved guilty. Though this is still upheld by justice generally, certain persons know to their cost that ln their
-own cases the principle ls reversed.
To one section ot the community tho
law says, with no uncertain voice, "You
are guilty unless you can prove yourself Innocent" Tbe victim of this rule
ls he who Is "known to the police,"
who ls "suspected of Intent to commit
a crime," and of late years quite a
cumber of persons havo been sent to
prison under an act which ls called tho
""prevention of crimes act" on the mere
.suspicion that their c induct Is not what
It should be.
The act operates against persons who
<tiave already been ln prison, and Its e*.
lstence mnkes It a very hard task for
an ex-convict to enjoy real freedom.
Any person who has served a term
Of imprisonment may be arrested,
"Without a warrant, If his conduct does
Dot favorably Impress a policeman, and
summarily convicted.
For Instance, tho hien charged with
•complicity in the Conduit street Jewel
■robbery some years ago were not con-
Iflcted of their offense, but the evl-
- dence given was that their mode of
•life was "probably dishonest."    This
was accepted by the judge, who sentenced them to a year's Imprisonment,
•not, be it noticed, for any crime, but
•because they were "probably" guilty
end could not prove themselves Innocent
Another man only a few weeks ago
•was sentenced to eighteen months' imprisonment for loitering. He was discovered by the police waiting about
• aome quiet byway of Chelsea and, hav-
- Ing been recognized as an ex-couvlct,
• Was promptly token in charge.
'   Another  case of crimeless criminal
• Was that of the youth who wns sentenced to eighteen months' imprisonment for merely having ln his possession Implements mnde for the purposo
of coining. The man had not coined
anything,  but it seemed  fairly clear
• that he had thoughts of doing so.
The blow of this prophetic system of
: prosecution, however, fulls most hear-
Ily on the mnn who has already been
»convicted.   Such a person finds lt al*
•jnost impossible to shake off the law.
During his ticket of leave period If
Tie does not report himself regularly
he ls liable to be sent back. Not only
this, but if any action of his strikes
the police as suspicious lt ls only necessary, according to the act, to state
that there are "reasonable grounds for
believing that he gains his living by
.dishonest means."
<   Not only are ticket of leave men 11a-
''ble to unexpected arrest for no definite
< crime, but also any convict whatever.
.For seven years after the expiration
• Of the sentence passed on hlm if be refuses to give his hanie or address or
gives a false one, or if he ls found ln
any plnce, whether public or private,
without being able to satisfy the court
why he was there, he is liable to a
■ year's imprisonment.
A  social  gathering of criminals ln
i the east end was some years ago sud-
> denly Interrupted by the entrance of a
-well known detective.   The company
was only engaged ln the harmless occupation   of   smoking   nnd   chatting,
though,     doubtless,     only     between
crimes.  Said the detective:
•"A watch was stolen yesterday from
-*a gentleman in Fife street.   Now, ono
• of you knows where lt Is.  Unless you
• deliver it up ln twenty-four hours tho
whole lot of you wlll be run ln tomorrow for being alive."
Being interpreted, this meant that
the detective had a special reason for
recovering the watch for bis client, and
to save himself tbe ordinary process of
searching he had adopted this* method
•ct Intimidation.
By this threat he meant that tho
Wtiolo company could be charged under the "prevention of crimes act" on
suspicion of not earning an honest living or for loitering with felonious in-
-Quite recently ln a well known civil
lawsuit the plaintiff's poHllion was discredited by a detective witness who
came Into court untl testified that ho
.was "on the ninrket."
This, being interpreted, meant that
the ''in,ni ill's habits bad not met wltb
the approval of the legion of plain
clothes detectives wbo uro known to
brunt London'! streets. The methods
«if these gentlemen ure not conilned to
the actual detection of crimes so much

passing to and fro ln certain streets.
One of these detectives says Unit be
spends the greater part of his time
dully In walking up and down a crowded thoroughfare ond fixing bis eyes on
any person whose progress along the
street does not suggest urgent business.
"If when I catch his eye," snld the
detective, "this person stares back at
mu or turns to look after I huve passed
I know that he's a wrong 'un and
watch blm carefully."
If the individual subjected to this
treatment should often frequent the
thoroughfare in question nud if his
companions should not meet with the
entire approval of tbe detective on
Watch then he is "on the market."—

They Make the Kidneys Strain out of

Diseases That trouble Old Folks.
Acadie Siding, Kent Co., N.B., Feb.
27.—(Special.)—After suffering for
forty years from Kidney trouble, Cal-
lxte Richard, the well-known Justice of
the Peace here, is fully recovered, and
he says that Dodd's Kidney Pills cured
"Yes," says Mr. Richard, "I had Kidney Trouble over forty years, with the
result that I was a worn out man at
seventy-two. Then I started taking
Dodd's Kidney Pills, and the result is
that the pain ls gone from my back,
and I am able to work again."
Dodd's Kidney Pills make the old
feel young again. They make the Kidneys sound, and sound Kidneys strain
out of the blood the seeds of the diseases to which the old are subject,
such as Backache, Rheumatism, Urinary and Bladder Troubles, etc.
What Is Required of  Titos* Wh* Attead-
yimliilui.il T*:# uresque Ceremonies Evan To-day.
Quaint and picturesque ara the ceremonies connected with the King's
Leveo in Buckingham Palace even at
the present day. ln the old days it
was expected of certain sections of
society that they should put' in an
appearance at a couple of Levees at
the least in each season. The present
regulations require each personage
who desires to attend or to be presented to obtain a card of admission, and as the number is limited
the task of making a selection is not
the least arduous of tho duties that
devolve upon the Lord Chamberlain.
Army officers accordingly send in
their names a fortnight before the
appointed day, and other sections of
tho community are allowed at least
a week longer to make up their
minds. Members of tho public Mr-
vices, the Diplomatic Corps, clergy
of all denominations and some other
classes may generally reckon upon
being included in the list, in virtus
of thoir status. But private personages must be prepared to run tho

For the success of the Institute
meetings held under its auspices the
Lethbridge Agricultural Society is
gaining an enviable reputation. The
flrst of this winter's series was held
on January 19th, and it rivalled the
past both in interest and attendance.
Dr. De Veber, M.L.A., president ofthe
society, occupied the chair, and the
speaker of the evening was Arch. Mitchell, Dominion Forestry Inspector
for Alberta.
Mr. Mitchell started off by .saying
that although the succes of agriculture in Alberta was now an established fact, agriculture itself was yet
in the experimental stage. No one
could say what our staple crop would
be in Ave years, let alone in twenty.
But there was one crop the popularity of which was bound to increase.
It was that of trees and forest-plantation. There was no danger that well
cared for plantaltons would ever become unprofitable. Once a farmer got
a good plantation successfully started, his only regret would be that he
had not started it sooner. Last summer, after-viewing a. splendid plantation, he had turned to the owner with:
"Well, they are a fine lot of trees!"
"Yes," replied the farmer, "but what
a fool I was not to have planted them
nineteen years ago. Most of us had
come from the east or south, and
very pleasant were the memories of
the tree-clad homes of our childhood.
It would be a thousand pities if our
children grew up without any such
Practical forestry In the West takes
in forest, plantations and home plan-
talons. On every quarter-section there
should be two shelter belts, the one
along the west, the other parllelwith
it running through the centre. These
belts should be G6 feet wide. Experience had shown at Indian Head
that for every foot in height the plantations gave fifty feet of protection.
Before planting the trees, the land
should be summerfallowed during the
preceding winter, left rough for winter and cultivated thoroughly till trees
were ready to plant. Here the trees
need to be planted with care. Dig
the hole about a foot deep and three
feet in diameter, throw some rich top
soil into the bottom of the hole, set
the trees on this, then trampe earth
firmly around the roots and leave a
covering of loose soil on top.
In planning for home plantations,
the buildings should be placed neither
too near tho the road nor to the line
fence. Leave room for a strip of trees
on tho north and west 30 yards wide,
and leave a space of similar width
between the trees and the buildings.
Then you will not be troubled with
drifts close to the house. On the south
and east, strips may be narrow, but
all should be well cultivated. Indeed,
blue joint spread so rapidly that it
was usually best to plow up and thoroughly kill all of it in the house area'.
The Alberta garden should be a
garden of narrow strips, with alternating rows of trees. These would protect the plants from the early morning sun, and in case of late spring or
or early autumn frosts they would, by
shading such tender vegetables a3 tomatoes or corn, save them from injury
that would otherwise be experienced.
The varieties of trees to plant depended upon the purpose, the cultivation and the amount of water available. The native cottonwood, maple,
elm, and Douglas fir were probably
the best. Spruce is also good. The
evergreens fill up the landscape, and
may be planted alternately with elm
or maple.
All evergreens must be carefully
transplanted, and great care must be
taken not to expose the roots to the
sun. During the summer he had, in
driving, caught up to a northern. Alberta farmer, who, when drawing lumber, had got six spruce trees to plant.
He had them tied together, and with
roots uncovered and upturned was taking them home, tied to the binding
pole. Such work was useless labor;
the trees would never grow.
There should not be less than ten
acres of 'trees on a quarter-section.
The Germans found that the presence
of 25 per cent, of timbered land exercised a beneficial effect upon agriculture.
Much fruit was hound to be grown
in southern Alberta. Better have a
nursery; plant, all the apple seeds you
can; then graft desirable varieties upon
tho seedlings. Train the trees to a
dwarf habit. The largo trees fromthe
nurseries are little good.
Many of the gooseberry plants set
out were only old stock, separated
and replanted in rich garden soli
These had not the vitality of young
shoois.    Better   propagate yigr own
cuttings. At Ponoka a man had boen
must successful with strawberries.
Tho whole of his next season's crop
was already contracted for.
Mr. Fairfield said they were well
pleased with their success ln small
fruits. They hnd during the past year
grown 142 Imperial quarts of raspberries, (12 of strawberries, SO of
gooseberries and 80 of currants, ln
fruit growing three essentials wero
necessary; (1) A windbreak. Thev
had none, nnd he was sure half the
raspberries dried up from hot. winds
without maturing, (2) Cultivation.
This was just as necessary with lrri-
gallon as without. It. (8) Winter protection. Allow the wood to ripen. Water must not be put on after the last
of July. Then give a thorough watering the last thing in the fall. Currants
nnd gooseberries require no protection, Raspberries should he cut back
In Angusl: then the ennes should bo
bent down and covered with earth
just, as the winter comes on. Straw*
berry planls should be mulched with
straw, not wilh manure. He found
the Senator Dunlap best. Tbe flaw*
berry was a most useful berry, hardier
even thnn the raspberry. Mr. Ttohson
stated that, he hnd found the dewberry ennes to need covering In order to
fruit well.
Tbo Farm W«oa» Lot.
Just now there is a demand for
timber of nearly all kinds, and
many farmers are selling everything
they have that is marketable. This
ls in most cases a very unwise policy.
Tha wood lot should be a part ot
every wall conducted farm and, if
properly treated, may be made a
very profitable part. Thero is nothing to be made, as a rule, by keep.
Ing trees after they have reached maturity, as then they will soon begin
to deteriorate, but lt is decidedly
poor policy lo sacrifice the best
young trees merely because somo one
otters a good price for them.
Timber values are not likely to
shrink, and thc farmer and tho rest)
of the world will need lumber and
fire-wood as much ten or twenty
years from now as they do to-day

Nervous Trouble That Yields Readily
to Dr. William's Pink Pills.
St. Vitus Dance is a common disease among children, but It often attacks both men and women of nervous
temperament. Its symptoms are shaky
hands, jerky arms, trembling legs,
twitching muscles; sometimes the
power of speech is affected. The only
cure lies In plenty of blood because
good blood is the life-blood of the
nerves. Dr. William's Pink Pills
never tail to cure St. Vitus Dance,
because they make the rich, red blood
that feeds the nerves and keeps them
strong and steady. Mrs. Wm. Levellle,
Welland, Ont., was seidously afflicted
with St. Vitus Dance, and no treatment
helped her until she began the use of
Dr. William's Pink Pills. Mrs. Levellle
says:—"At times the trouble was so
severe that I could not take a drink
of water unaided, and could not trust
myself to raise a dish. There was a
constant involuntary motion of the
limbs, and at times I could neither
eat, walk nor talk. I grew pale and
emaciated, and my life was fairly a
burden. Doctor's treatment, which I
was taking almost continnously, did
not do nie a particle of good and I had
almost eomo to the conclusion that
there was no cure for rae. J was in
what must be considered a desperate
condition when I was advised to try
Dr. William's Pink Pills. In the course
of a few weeks after I had begun their
use, there wss a marked improvement
in my condition, and by the time I
had taken nine boxes every symptom
of the trouble had disappeared, and I
was as healthy aad active as in girlhood."
It is because Dr. William's Pink Pills
go right down to the root of the
trouble In the blood that they cure
such diseases as St. Vitus dance, neuralgia, nervous prostration, anaemia,
backaches and headaches, rhenmatlsm,
kidney trouble, indigestion, lung
troubles and other diseases of the
blood and nerves. But you must be
careful to get the genuine pills with

Pills for Pale People" on the wrapper

A meeting of the abovo society was
held In Winnipeg on Thursday, at
which it was decided to make a free
distribution of plants in the spring, to
all members. A list of hardy fruit
and ornamental plants, which it is believed will grow ln any part of Manitoba and the Territories, was prepared,
and members will be entitled to make
a selection from this list. Any one
joining the society now will be entitled to share in the free plant distribution. The annual membership fee
is only one dollar. Any one sending
this amount to Ceo. Baths, Secretary
Western Horticultural Society, Winn'-
peg, will receive the plants, and will
also be entitled to a copy of all the
publications of the society. These
publications Include many valuable
articles upon all phases of horticultural and forestry work, written by our
most experienced horticulturists. They
contain the practical experience gained in this country, and are therefore
more valuable to people here than
hooks upon horticulture written by
persons who lived in a different cliin-
ate and under entirely different con-
diiions from those we are subject to
here. . These articles deal with fruit
growing, floriculture, vegetable growing, forestry, etc. The object of the
society is to encourage horticultural
work in Western Canada, and the
membership is comprised of persons
residing In all parts of Manitoba and
the Territories.

An overwhelming victory has been
won by the Japs over the Russians
this week, in the vicinity of Mukden.
Admiral Togo has also sailed to meet
the Russian fleet, and it promises to
be all day with tlie Slavs. It is the
Risen Suu for the future.
In the death of E. F. Clarke, member of parliament for Centre Toronto,
which occurred last weekv Canada has
lost one of her most gifted sons. The
Conservative party will sadly miss
him, he being one of its prominent
members, being possessed of a strong
personality and great debating ability.
The Grand Trunk Pacific scheme
was used by the Liberals to dazzle the
electorate of British Columbia at the
dominion elections. Any proposi tion
to bonus that road after the way its
promoters duped the people deserves
no public support. It is only a question of time when the road will be
obliged to seek an outlet at the Pacific
without a bonus.
In ihe debate on the new school bill
last week Wm. Davidson, member for
the Slocan, favored the increase of the
"poll tax from $3 to §4, so as to give
the government more funds for edu
cational purposes. Of all the provincial forms of taxation, tlie poll tax is
the most unpopular, mainly because
of the unfair way in which it is collected. Any man moving to increase
-that burden will come in for strong
.condemnation from the pe pie.
•** Opposition papers have for weeks
-been prophesying the demise of the
Conservative government at Victoria,
because of the Socialists being dis
satisfied with the treatment accorded
them. A tost of the truth of the as
sertions was made this week on the
school bill, when, strange tosay,it was
found the Independents still favored
the government programme. Haw-
thornthwaite, the Socialist leader.went
even much farther than that, and denounced the Liberals.inilividually and
collectively. Some other reason must
now be found for ousting the Conservatives from power.
The fate of the Liberal party at Ottawa is hanging in the balance, by
reason of the feeling aroused over the
proposal to inflict the separate school
system on the new provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta. Hon. Clifford
Sifton, minister of the interior, has resigned his position as a protest, and
all the Liberal members of Manitoba
and the Northwest in the house have
united against the bill. The fires of a
fierce religious dissension have been
aroused in Ontario and other provinces
and extreme pressure is being brought
to bear to defeat the bill. The situation is fraught with much danger to
the Liberal party.
On Monday afternoon the Liberals
in the legislature attempted to steal a
march ou the government by moving
A six months' hoist for the new school
bill, but they wore checkmated, their
manoeuvre lx>ing defeated by a vote of
19 to 17. The full Liberal vote was
polled, and thoy had reckoned also on
support from the Socialist and Lalior
memliers, but they did not get it. Five
government supporters were absent
from the houso. Had the Liberals
succeeded, they would have made it
hot for tho government. On Tuesday,
however, the tables were turned on
the opposition with a vengeance, as
the second reading of the liill was
carried by a vote of 23 to 17. The
bill went ta committee next day. It
is quite probable a few minor amend*
meats will be made, but iu the main
the bill will stand as originally introduced. It does not look as if the gov
eminent were exhibiting any sign of
weakness or disorganization.

ion we huvo readied Life's tether end
Anil part tin* ties that bind us.
Should ue have left  but   one true friend
Tn mourn our loss behind us,
Then we shall not have lived in vain
If, in our onward pressing
Amidst Life's cares, amidst Its pain,
We've saved one Earthly blessinjf.
For, greatest of nil Heavenly f,*ifts
Unto poor mortals given,
Is love ennobling, love thai lifts,
And brings us nearer I haven;
Thai helps us find in every part
Where Hope's  advance  has liound us
Some true, congenial, kindly heart
Amid the hosts around us.
So, he who has had many friends,
Yet feels Death's chill eonie o'er him.
May look across whore this life ends
To that which lies before him;
And tho' the pang be great to ^n
And break these bands asunder,
It lessens still the grief to know
That friends await him yonder.
Ood grant, when we-are
And this life's ties be
When all our hope of I'
And our last souk be :

When Heaven looms up before us clear
And golden dawn i.s o'er us:
That we leave friends behind us here
And we'll have friends liefore us.

ii Business
in these days of progress and competition
no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods before the people.
Modern usages proclaim advertising the
one road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
sell goods a man must
advertise. All live
men seek the aid of
the printer
