Oar Fruit Growers' Column
The enterprising Managers of tin
l-.wm.ill opposite Now Denver talk of
manufacturing boxes for the fruit growers of, this neighborhood. The freight
on boxes from t! e coatt is so large an
item in their cost Ihat the local makers
will get considerable protectiou by it
for tlieir industry, and we may all cor-
di.illy wish It success. I have lo:*g felt
that t ti ie neighborhood is well suited
to some forms of manufacture, as it has
cheap waterpOWOr, cheap sites for factories, and a splendidly mild climate.
We will hope Iiom this small beginning other Industries will arise to our
mutual advantage.
Some oi tlie fruit groweis, aided and
abetted by Mr. George Williamson, are
talking of importing a_'.car!nud of artificial manure by getting a cur direct
from the manufacturers���we sbould
save Ihe local freight from Nelson and
the middleman's profits. The idea is a
most ixcellont one and I hope lo see it
carried out successfully.
To make a sueeesa of it we should
know what our soils most need, and we
should act at once. I suggest that we
get several representative samples of
the soil of tbis neigh boi hood and give
them to Mr. Eankine so tbat ho and
his scholars may send them to the
chemist at the Central Experimental
Farm, Ottawa. If anyone who intends
to buy anv ol this fertilizer takes a sample of the soil that he Intends lo apply
the manure to, to be analaysed, be will
bo able to order the] manure more
intelligently and apply it more profitably.
We havo to consider the eoil that the
manure is to be applied to, and also lhe
Crop tliat'we intend to grow when purchasing our manure, or we may do harm
instead of good. Mr. Williamson's
fall wheat would probably greatly appreciate a lop dressing of abont 100 lbs.
of jiitrn'e of foda applied as a top dressing early in Ihe spring, but if he puts
on too much bis chickens will complain
that they have too much straw to scratch
over and not sufficient grain. Great
quantities of nitrale of soda arc used as
a top dressing for wheat in Kngland,
o, small amount per acre ".having a very
stimulating effect on the young plants,
Potatoes are more likely to be helped
by a liberal supply of potash, though
nitrate ol soda wil! also help them to
make a Btart. Potash is rather a slow-
manure to dissolve. It is often applied
during the provious autumn so that the
winter rain and snow can prepare it.
It does not wash away eanly, so that
wliich is not used ono year Is available
for the next.
_' Kainit is the form that is used most
largely in the Old Country, but out, here
we should probably dud sulphate of
potash the best form to purchase, as it
is much more concentrated, it being
nearly four times as strong as kainit;
therefore we should save three fourths
ot the freight. Cabbage can use great
quantities of nitrate to advantage, but
it should he applied in small quantities
and often. It is veiy easily dissolved
and washed away, so if too much is put
on at once much of it may be lost.
Nitrogen promotes the growth of tbe
leaves, therefore cabbage, which we
grow for its leaves, is greatly helped by
it, whereas turnips mny get too much
of it and instead of producing roots go
"all to top" *, turnips insist on a
liberal supply ol phosphates if they aie
to succeed. The mangold is a greedy
eort of fellow that likes plenty of everything going, especially nit into and
phosphates. Doubtless a good deal of
artificial manure will be applied to our
flower garden**, and here again the principles indicated hold god; apply nitrates whoro foliage is wanted, and
potash and phosphates lo develop
flowers and fruit.        J. C. HARRIS.'
Miners' Union Talk Of Co-
At the recent M.U. convention, held
at Greenwood,  tlie following repoit was
" We, your Committee on Co-operation won'd lecommend that each locality open a retail Co-operative store on
the Rochilalo system, and whilst we
appreciate all that has been said in favor of distributing centres, we still believe that the success of the movement
depends largely on each locality showing the true Co-operative spirit and
starting its own store, then later on establishing distributing centres in each
of the following districts: The Crow's
Nest District; lhe Slocan *, Nelson and
Rosslandi nnd the Boundary District.
But first, in tbe opinion of your committee, must come the retail store, then,
afterwards, to supply the nerds that
their establishment will create, the Cooperatively owned wholesale house will
come into existence.
Your committee would recommend
that localities] wishing to start a store
of tlii-s kind, communicate with Grand
Forks, where an enterprise of thia kind
is in successful operation,"

Tbe maj >rity of those who. Bigned the
petition fir the renewal of the load
bounty are now kicking themselves.
NjI becauie they have changed in tlieir
views ub to the need of it, but simply
because on Becond thoughts tbey have
" taken a tumble." Who got the
money when the bounty was last distributed ? Who are tbe only purchasers of load oroB in the Dominion ? Who
owns and operates the largest lead
mines in the Dominion, and who will
rako in the greatest percentage of the
bounty ? Who is supplying funds for
Messrs. Pratt and Retallnck to go lobbying at Ottawa ? Whose system transports your ore te the only lead smelter
in Canada ? Answer those questions
yourself, and we shall be greatly surprised if you- do not feel liko kicking
yourself too, that ia, if you Bigned the
petition. It is a pretty little game
played swift.
But tho bounty is not yoi I Two and

and by reason of a eliding scale based
on current market priceB, only t.000,000
of the amount appropriated was distributed, andG. O. Buchanan's books will
bIiow what company raked in .800,000
of that. Small wonder that a lead
bounty is needed in their business.

Dated at Slocan, B.C, this 30th day j
of January, A.D., 1008. (
It is his'ory that 15 monlns ago the
pretty lakeside city of Slocan was in
the hands ol the sheriff, but it haB
never been placed on record how Sheriff
Tuck with all his complete knowledge
of the duties surrounding a bailiff met
a snag in tho shape of Thos. McNeish,
mayor of Slocan City, and bow be dared
tbo sheriff to remove stick or stone.
The story would take too long to relate
for our purpose, suffice i*t to say tbat
the circumstances that led up to tiie
issuance of the writ to seize the city
wero unique, but the rebuttal was an
eye-opener to the worthy sheriff, and
the enemy retired utterly routed.
At that time the city was in a lothar-
gic condition; mining in tlie immediate
locality was not a prolific source of revenue for tho business men and merchants, and lumbering there was little
or none. With euch a black outlook,
and'staggering from a back-banded
slap in the face just received with the
visit of the sheriff, tho optimists were
sorely taxsd to calm the troubled waters.
Exaggerated reports appeared in the
press, and this to a very great extent,
disturbed the serenity of tha camp, as
many citizenB with but a vague conception of the cause and the remedy sorrowfully departed for fresh  pastures.
But those "city fathers" who had
every confidence in what the future
held for the city, devised ways and
means to heal the breach until the
ominous clouds unfolded and'shew their
silver lining, and all praise to their
efforts win or lose.
At tbe present moment Slocan City
ia in as good financial standing as any
Corporation in the piovince. Iu the
treasury there is *J*1,000 and no immediate liability other tban current working expenses.
The municipality is losing no sleep on
account of its debentures. Mayor McNeish remaiked to our representative
the othor day: "If wo can't pay six

Although several of the well appointed
hotels closed tlieir doors during the wave
of depression which bad never receded
for seven years, tbey have never omitted
to renew their licenses, and this is one
great factor in the staving off of a financial crisis. Again, the city has recently disposed of lots at an insignificant
price, but though in the years to come
they will bo Bold for hundred of dollars
yet it may safely be said that tbe city
sold them for present marketable value.
The spirit of progress is in the air!

has run the Hotel Madden, lately purchased tho hotel building known as the
"Blue Front," and this bas been removed a whole block and it now stands

Saturday came at last, a balmy September day, when all nature seemed
conspiring to welcome the travelers
for whom so extensive preparations
were making at Aikenside. They were
expected at about six in the afternoon, and just before tbat hour tha
doctor rode up to be in readiness to
meet them. In the dining room the
table was set as Mnddy bad never
seen it set before, making, with ita
silver, its china, nnd cutgloss, a glittering display There was Guy's seat
as   carver,   with   Agnes   at   the   urn,
while Maddy felt sure that the two
plates between Agnes and Guy were
intended Ior Jessie and herself, the
doctor occupying the other side. Jessie
would sit next her mother, which
would leave her near to Guy, where
he could see every movement she
made. Would he think her awkward,
or would he, as sbe hoped, be so
much absorbed with the doctor as not
to notice her? Suppose she should
tlrop her fork, or upset one of those
queer-looking goblets, more like bowls
than anything else? It would be terrible, and Maddy's cheeks tingled at
'the very thought of bucIi a catastrophe. Were they goblets really those
funny colored things, and if they were
not, what were they? Summoning all
her courage, she asked the doctor, her
prime counselor, nnd learned that they
iwere the finger-glasses, of which she
had read, but which she had never
seen before.
"Oh, must I use them?" she asked,
in so evident distress that the doctor
could not forbear a laugh as ho told
her it was not of the slightest consequence whether she used them or not,
"advising her to watch Mrs. Agnes,
who was au fait in all such matters.
' Six o'clock came, but no travelers.
Then an hour went by, and there
came a telegram that the cars had
broken down and would not probably
arrive until late in the night, if indeed they did till morning. Greatly
disappointed, the doctor, after dinner, took his leave, telling the girls
they had better not sit up. Consequently, at a late hour they both re*
tired, Bleeping so soundly as not to
hear the noise outside the house; the
banging of doors, the setting down of
trunks, the tramp of feet, Mrs. Noah's
worda of welcome, one pleasant voice
which responded, and another more
impatient one wliich sounded as if its
owner were tired and crosB.
Agnes and Guy had come. As a
whole, Agnes' season at Saratoga had
been rather disagreeable. Guy, it is
true, had been exceedingly kind. She
had been flattered by brainless fops.
;She had heard herself called "that
beautiful Mrs. Remington," and "that
charming young widow," but no serious attentions had been paid, no
millionaire had asked to be her second husband. If there had, she would
have said yes, for Agnes was not
averse to changing her state of widowhood. She liked the doctor, but if he
,did not propose, and Borne other body
did, she should accept that other
body, of course. This was her intention when she left Aikenside, and
when she came back, it was with the
determination to raise the Biege at
once, and compel tbe doctor to surrender. She knew he was not wealthy
as she could wish, but his family were
the Holbrooks, and as she positively
liked him, she was prepared to waive
the matter of money. In this state of
mind it is not surprising that the
morning of the return home she
should listen with a troubled mind to
Jessie's rather exaggerated account of
the number of times the doctor had
been there, and the nice things he
had said to her and Maddy.
"He had visited tbem ever so much,
staying ever so long. I know Maddy
likes him; I do, anyway," Jessie said,
never dreaming of the passion Bhe
was exciting, jealousy of Maddy,
hatred of Maddy, and a desire to be
revenged on a girl whom Dr. Holbrook visited "ever so much."
What waa she that he should care
for her? A mere nothing���a child,
whom Guy had taken up. Pity tbere
was a Lucy Atherstone in the way of
his making her mistress of Aikenside.
It would be a pretty romance, Guy
Remington and Grandpa Markham's
grandchild. Agnes was nervous and
tired, and this helped to increase ber
anger toward the innocent girl. She
would take immediate measures, she
thought, to put the upstart down, and
.the sight of Flora laying the cloth
lor breakfast suggested to ber the first
step in teaching Maddy her place.
"Flora," she snid, "1 notice you are
arranging the table for four. Huve we
company ?"
"Why, no, ma'nm; there's Mr. Guy,
yourself, Miss Jessie, and Miss
Clyde," was Flora's reply, while -.*���-
pas continued haughtily: "Remove
Miss Clyde's plate. No one allowa
tlieir governe.-s  to  eat  with  them."
"But, ma'am," and Flora hesitated,
"she's very pretty, and ladylike, and
young; she has always eaten with
MiBs Jessie and Dr. Holbrook when
he was here. He treats her aa if she
was good as anybody."
In her eagerness to serve Maddy
and save her from insult. Flora was
growing bold, but she only hurt the
cause by mentioning the doctor. Ag-
ineti was determined now, and she re-
"It was quite right when we were
gone, but it is different now, and Mr.
Remington, I am sure, will not suffer
"Might I ask him?" Flora persiat-
,ed, her hand still on the plate.
"No," Agnes would attend to that,
And also Bee Miss Clyde. All Flora
lhad to do wns to remove the plate
which she finally did, muttering to
herself: "Such airs! but I know Mr.
Guy won't stand it."
. Meantime Maddy had put on her
prettiest delaine, tied her little dainty
black Bilk apron, Mra. Noah'a gift, and
'.with the feeling that she was looking
unusually well, started for the parlor
ito meet her employer, Mrs. Agnes.
[Jessie had gone in quest of her bro-
���ther, and thus Agnes was alone when
IMaddy Clyde first presented hersell
'before her. She bnd not expected to
;find Maddy so pretty, and for a moment the hot blood crimsoned her
eheek, while ber heart throbbed wildly beneath the rich morning dress.
Dr. Holbrook had cause for being at-
traded by th^t. fresh, bri_*__.Jae__-sh,e
ir******-*-*rnr, a*��� -*-o ane r*".erea* "Herself
against the better impulses of her nature, impulses which pleaded that for
the sake of the past she should be
kind to Maddy Clyde.
"Ah, good-morning. You are JesBie's
governess, I presume," she aaid, bowing distantly, and pretending not to
notice the hand which Maddy involuntarily extended toward her. "Jessie
speaks well of you, and I am very
glad you suit her. Yon have had a
pleasant time, I trust?"
Her voice was so cold and her manner so distant that Maddy's eyes for
an instant filled with tears, but 8he
answered civilly that she had been
very happy, and everybody wns very
kind. It was hsrder work to put down
Maddy Clyde than Agnes had expected, and after a little further conversation there ensued a silence, which
neither waa inclined to break. At last,
summoning all her courage, Agnes begun:
"Excuse me, Miss Clyde, but your
own good sense, of which I am sura
you have an abundance, muat tell you
thnt now Mr. Remington and myself
nre at home, your intercourse with our
family must be rather limited���that is
1 ���ahem���that is, neither Mr. Remington nor myself are accustomed to having our governess very much with us.
I suppose you have had the range of
tbe parlors, sitting there when you
liked, and all this was perfectly proper. Mind. I am finding no fault with
you. It is all quite right," she continued, as she saw the strange rook
of terror and surprise visible on Maddy's face. "The past is right, but in
future it will be a little different. I
nm willing to accord to a governess
all the privileges possible". They are
human as well as myself, but society
makes a difference. Don't you know it
"Yes���no���I don't know. Oh, pray
tell me what I am to do!" Maddy
gasped, her face as white as ashes,
and her eyes wearing as yet only a
scared, uncertain  look.
With little, graceful tosses of the
head, which set in motion every one
of the brown curls, Mrs. Agnes replied :
"You are not, of course, to go to
Mr. Remington. It is my mutter, and
does not concern bim. What I wish ia
this: You are to come to the parlor
only when invited, and are not to intrude upon ns at any time, particularly when company is here, such as-
well, such as Dr. Holbrook, if you
please. As you cannot be with Jessie
oil the while, you will, when your
labors as governess are over, sit in
your own room, or the schoolroom,
or walk in th<- back yard, just as the
higher servants do���such as Mrs.
Noah and the sowing girl, Sarah. Occasionally we shall have you in to
dine with us, but usually you will
take your meals with Mrs. Noah and
Sarah. By following these directions
you will, I think, give entire satisfaction."
When Mrs. Agnes had finished this,
Maddy began to understand her position, and into her white face the hot
blood poured indignantly. Wholly inexperienced, she hnd never dreamed
that n governess was not worthy to
sit at the same table with her employer, that she must never enter the
parlors unbidden, or intrude herself
in any way. No wonder that ber
cheeks burned at the degradation, or
that, for an instant, she felt like defying the proud woman to her face. But
the angry words trembling on her
tongue were repressed as she remembered her grandfather's teachings;
and with a bow as haughty as any
Mrs. Agnes could have made, and a
look on her face which could not
easily be forgotten, she left the room,
and in a kind of stunned bewilderment sought the garden, where she
could, unseen, give way to her feelings.
Once alone, the torrent burst forth,
and burying her face in the soft grass,
she wept bitterly, never hearing the
step coming near, and not at first
heeding the voice which asked what
was the matter. Guy Remington, too,
had come out into the garden, acci-
dently wandering that way, and ao
stumbling upon tbe little figure crying in the grass. He knew it was Maddy, and greatly surprised to find her
thus, asked what was the matter.
Then, us she did not hear him, lie
laid his hand gently upon her shoulder, compelling ber to look up. In all
her imaginings of Guy, she had never
associated him with the man who
bad so puzzled and confused her, and
now she did not for a time suspect
the truth. She only thought him a
guest at Aikenside; someone come
with Guy, and her degradation seemed greater than before. She was not
aurprised when he called her by
name; of course I * remembered her,
just us she did hint; but she did wonder a little wbat Mra. Agnes would
say, could she know how kindly he
spoke to ber, lifting her from the
grass and leading her to a rustic seat
at  no great distance from them.
"Now, tell me why you are crying
so?" he said, brushing Trom her silk
apron the spot of dirt which had settled upon it. "Are you homesick?" he
continued, and Maddy burBt out
She forgot that he was a stranger,
forgot everything except that he sympathized with her.
"Oh, air, I was so happy here till
they came home, Mrs. Remington and
Mr. Guy. I never thought it was a
disgrace to be a governess; never
heard it was so considered, or that I
was not good enough to eat with
them, till she told me this. Oh, dear,
dear!" and choked with tears Maddy
stopped a moment to take breath.
She did not look up at the young
man beside her, and it was well she
did not, for the dark expression of his
face would have frightened her. Half
guessing the truth, and impatient to
hoar more, he snid to her:
"Go on," so sternly, thnt she started, and replied:
"I know you are angry with me and
I ought not to hnve told you."
"I am not nngry���not at you, at
least���go on," was Guy's reply, and
Maddy continued:
"She told me now they had come
home it would be different, that only
when invited must I come to the parlor, or anywhere, but must stay in
the servants' part, and eat with Mrs.
Noah and Sarah. I'd just aa Boon do
that. I am no better than they, only,
only���the_ wa;___8he told _ne__r*a<___ me
.rtisn,���-���*.*���!.: r i ��__n*it anyCoo*y,
when I am," .M.nr! here Maddy's pride
began to rise. "I'm just as pood as
she. if grandpa is poo-, ind I won'1
stay here to be t-eated Litre a ni?ger
by her and Mr. Guy. I liked bim so
much, too, because he was kind to
erandna and to me when I was sick.
Yes, I did like him so."
"And how is it now?" Guy asked,
wondering who in the world she
thought he was. "How is it now?"
"I s'pose it's wicked to feel such
things on Sunday,.but, somehow, what
she said keeps making me so bad that
I know I hate her, and I guess I hi.te
Mr. Guy!"
This was Maddy's answer, spoken
deliberately, while she looked up at
'he young man, who, with u comical
���>.pression abcut his mouth, replied:
"I am Mr. Guy."
"You, you! Oh, I can't bear it! I
a ill die!" and Maddy sprang up aa
Illicitly as if feeling an electric
But Guy's arm was interposed to
������top her, nnd Guy's arm held her
back, while be asked her where she
was going.
"Anywhere out of sight where you
inn never see me again," Muddy sobbed vehemently "It is bad enough to
have you think me a fool, us you
tnust; but now, oh, whut do you
think of me?"
"Nothing bad, I nssure you," Guy
said, still holding her wrist to keep
her there. "I supposed you knew who
I was, but as you did not, I forgive
you for hating nie so cordinlly. If you
thought I sanctioned what Mrs. Remington bus snid to you, you bud cause
to dislike me, but, Miss Clyde, I do
not, and this is the first intimation 1
have hnd Hint you were to be treated
other tbun as n lndy. I am muster of
Aikenside, not Mrs., Agnes, who shall
he mnde to understand it."
"Oh, please don't quarrel about me.
Let me go home, and then all will be
well," Maddy cried, feeling, at that
moment, more nverse to leaving Aikenside than she could huve thought it
"We shall not quarrel; but I shall
have my way; meanwhile go to your
room and stay there until told that 1
have sent for you."
They went to the house together,
but separated in the hall; Maddy repairing to her room, while Guy sought
Mrs. Agnes. The moment she saw his
face she knew a storm was coming,
but was not prepared for the biting
sarcnsm and bitter reproaches heaped upon her by one who, when roused, was a perfect hurricane.
Maybe she hud forgotten whnt she
was when his father married her, he
said, but he had not, and he remembered well the wonder expressed by
many that his father should stoop to
marry a poor school-teacher. "Yes,
that's what you were madam, much
as you despise Maddy Clyde for being a governess; you were one once
yourself, and before that time mercy
knows what you were���a hired girl,
perhups���your present airs would
seem to warrant as much I"
Guy was in n sad passion by this
time, and failed to note the effect his
lust words had on Agnes, who turned
livid with rage and terror, but smothering her wrath, said beseechingly:
"Pray, Guy, do not be angry; I
know I am foolish about some things,
and proud people who 'come up,' as
you say, always are, I guess. I know
that marrying your father made me
what I am, but everybody does not
know it, and it is not necessary tbey
should. I don't remember exactly
what I did say to this Clyde girl, but
I thought it would be pleasanter for
you, pleasanter for us all, not to have
her always around; it seems ahe has
presided at the table when Dr. Holbrook was here to tea, and even you
can't think that quite right."
"I don't know why," and at mention of Dr. Holbrook Guy's temper
burst out again. "Agnes, you can't deceive me; I know the secret of your
abominable treatment of Maddy is
"Guy���jealous, I jealous of that
child?" And Agnes' voice was expressive of the utmost consternation.
"Yes, jealous of that child; you
think thnt because the doctor has
been kind to her, perhaps he wants
her some time for his wife. I hope he
does; I mean to help it on; I'll tall
him to have her, and if he don't I'll
almost marry her myBelf I" and Guy
paced up and down the parlor, chafing
and foaming like a young lion.
Agnes was conquered and quite as
much bewildered as Maddy had been;
she heard only in part how Mnddy
Clyde waa henceforth to be treated.
"Yea, yes," she gasped at last, as
Guy talked on, "stop now for mercy's
sake, and I'll do anything, only not
this morning, my head aches so I cannot go to the breakfast table; I must
be excused," and holding her temples,
which were throbbing with pain induced by strong excitement, Agnes
hurried to her own room and threw
herself upon the bed, angry, mortified,

That is What Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
Do���That   Is Why They Cure
So  Many Diseases
When persons have not enough
blood, or when their blood is weak
and watery, the doctors name the
trouble anaemia, BloodlessneBB is the
direct cause of many common diseases, such as indigestion, palpitation
of the heart, debility, decline, neuralgia, nervousness, rheumatism unci
consumption. The swrest signs of
poor blood are paleness, bluish lips,

low spirits and headaches and backaches. If anaemia is not checked in

Condemned     For     Inefficiency     and
HampereJ   in  Their  Work
By   Legislation
(Montreal  Gaze'te)
Tlie   railways   are    undergoing    in
somewhat aggravated  form  their  annual condemnation because the temporary  demand  for cars  is    greater
than   their  equipment  enable.3   them
to meet.    The  situation is  not new,
nor  is  unything  notably  new   being
said ubout it.    It extends to the United States and to the best equipped
roads there    as well ns    to roads in
Canada.    It wus only a few days ngo
that   lines   between   New   York   and
Buffalo hud to announce they  could
muke no more contracts for the car-
riuge  of grain  over their  trucks  till
those they were engaged on bud been
fulfilled.    In both countries there is,
however,  a disposition  to  tuke  hold
of minor incidents, to niugnify them,
to  represent  tbem  as  indicating  the
general   situation,   und   to   hold    the
railways up to condemnation us being
inefficiently equipped und inefficiently managed by men who have no regard  either  for  those  who  stand  to
the road in the relation of customers
or  for  tbe  general  interest    of    the
country,    To answer such    extreme
tnlk   it should  only  be  necessary  to
point to the work the railways hnve
done and are doing, to the immense
traffic tbey carry at about the lowest
rates prevailing in the world nnd to
their constant expenditures, not alone
on new rolling stock, but on terminals,   warehouses,  and  all  that  is  requisite  to  the  effective    nnd    ehenp
transport   of  passengers  nnd   freight.
In the case of the two lending Canadian  railways, the Grand Trunk nnd
Canadian Pacific, there was an addition to the rolling stock between Julv
11)06,  and July,  1907, of 8,880 freight
curs.     This   represented   an   increase
in  car equipment much  beyond  the
Increase   in   mileage  of    tlie    roads.
Most of it wns designated to meet the
requirements of the increasing traffic
that wus expected.   The records show
the   roads  are   currying  more   traffic
thnn  they  ever  did   before,    though
their profit is not proportionately increasing,    If  in  spite of this  expenditure   nnd   this   increased   business,
there are at times and places delnys
in  the supply  of  curs,  it is  for  the
well understood reason that it is not
commercially   prncticuble   to   keep   a
railway equipped with sufficient rolling stock to meet ut once the maximum demand of the season of greatest
traffic,   particularly  when,    as   often
happens, the movement of the freight
offered   is   largely   in   one   direction.
This  is   recognized   by  nil   who  give
study  to the  question,  und   by  ruil-
wny   commissioners,  amongst  others,
when  they  are  composed  of men  of
practical knowledge and with a sense
of  responsibility  resting  upon  them.
Railways may  not be  expected    to
perform   either  physical   or  commercial   impossibilities.    In  this  connection, also, it may be pointed out thut
while  railways on this continent are
being   condemned   for   not   providing
greater means  for doing  their work,
tbey are nt the same time being hampered by legislation and legal orders,
sometimes to"the extent of reducing
their credit.    No one can  or should
condemn the  law Hint  requires  railways to treat nil who come to them
with business on tbe same footing as
regards   rates,   promptness   and   efficiency of service, etc.    When, on the
plea of seiving the public,  however,
attempts   are   made   to   reduce   their
rates   below  a  reasonable   remunerative standard, barm is done, not only to those who have invested money
in  building rnilwnys, trusting in the
public   faith   to   be   able   to   operate
them  under fnir business conditions,
but  nlso io  the  communities  which
the railways serve.
Oomplloated Cases Which  Led to the Disc2very oi
That Great Medicine
In hia study of kidney diaease, Dr.
Chase found that fully 90 per cent, of
the eases nrose us a direct result of
liver nnd bowel disorders, und it wus
working on this iden thut led to the
discovery of Dr. Chnse's Kidney-Liver Pills.
Through overeating, rrTegular meals
or food that does not agree, the liver
is deranged, poisonous bile is left in
the blood, und the digestive system
is upset. Henduches, biliousness,
pains in buck und limbs, ill temper,
and general out-of-sort feelings result.
These ure among the symptoms of
liver complaint, but during such ut-
tucks the kidneys are overworked and
after a while there is pain and smarting when passing water, the urine
is highly colored and contains deposits, the pains iu the buck become
more severe, you hnve rheumatic
pains it may be, nnd nre gradually
lulling u victim of Bright's disease
of the kidneys.
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills
were prepared for the express purpose of effecting cure in every stage
of such cases. Tbey enliven the liver,
regulate the action of the bowels und
invigorate   the   kidneys.
In this regard tbey nre entirely different to uny treatment you ever used
and  nre  successful    in    complicated
cases in wliich ordinary kidney medicines have little or no effect. There
are people in every neighborhood in
Canada rendy to certify to this
Mrs. A. R. Price, Nose Creek, Calgary,  Alta.,  writes:���
"I write to tell you how highly we
think of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills, for tliey are unsurpussed for
torpid liver, constipation und kidney
troubles. My husbund derived great
benefit from Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills a couple of years ugo when

"I advised him to try Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills, thinking be wns
suffering from torpid liver. He did
so and nfter using less tbun two boxes
bis eyesight entirely returned und
he felt quite well ngnin. We would
never be without these pills in the
bouse und I cannot spenk too highly
of them."

Some  of the  Marvelous  Feats It Has
By a marvelous piece of surgery

Itage again In spite of the fact that ln
October last she hud both her feet cut
��ff through falling out of a train. At
l cost of $1,000 she has been fitted
with a pair of artificial feet which are
���ot only so wonderfully made as to
entirely escape detection, but which
tnable Miss Stephens to walk a couple
��f miles without fatigue and without
the aid of a stick.
This remarkable surgical feat retails the frequent remark, "Everything
Is possible In surgery nowadays."
A prisoner had severed his windpipe
with a razor. Thanks, however, to a
remarkable piece of surgery on the
hart of two doctors, the wound was
Itltched up and the man's life saved.
Even this astounding feat, however,
Bas been surpassed. Two years ago a
tailor was stabbed through tbe heart
while quarreling over a game of cards.
He arrived at the hospital ln a state of
collapse, and tbe doctors decided that
the only chance of sowing his life was
to stitch up tbe wound ln the heart
The chest had to be opened, three ribs
cut and part of the breastbone removed before the vital organ could be
reached, after which three stitcbea
were put ln the heart Artificial respiration was then resorted to, and two
months later the tailor was discharged
from the hospital as cured, althongh
he was obliged to wear a shield of
black leather and aluminium over his
thest to prevent any injury to the
���round. ���
Apart, however, from the fact of
Hitching up wounded hearts. It will
probably astonish many people to learn
that it la by no means a rare occurrence for surgeons to make hearts beat
���gain after they have apparently stopped. An operation for cancer was being performed, and under the influence
��f the anaesthetic the putient's heart
luddenly ceased to beat In un Instant
the surgeon's hand was thrust Inside
the body, and he commenced plncbiug

thus saving the patient's life.

160 Cars  Required  Now to  Do  Work
Formerly Accomplishei With
One  Hundred
(From the Free Press)
The practical working under present
conditions of the clauses of the Manitoba grain act regulating the distribution of cars was frankly discussed with a Free Press representative by William Wliyte, second vice-
president of the C.P.R. Mr. Wliyte
claimed that abuses of the act were
seriously hampering the railway in its
efforts to move the crop expeditiously, and were, in reality, defeating
the main purposes of the law.
"The great Veakness of tlie Manitoba grain net," said Mr. Whyte "is
that its trainers had evidently been
so strongly seized with the idea of
protecting tlie grain growers against
tbe railway companies and the elevator operators, thnt tbey evidently
overlooked the rights of tbe hitter to
be protected ngiiinst the abuse of privileges bv tbe grain growers. In an.
event it is certain that no adequate
provision was mnde which would give
the railway companies such protection, and as the yenrs go by tbe original spirit of tbe act, which wns intended to be simply n chock on tbe
elevator operators, is being more and
more abused by those it was designed to protect. From yenr to year the
fnrmer hns discovered new weak spots
in its provisions of which be may
tnke advantage with impunity to hla
own individual advantage, no doubt,
but with equal certainty to tin* dia-
advantage ol the farming community
ns  ii  whole.
Delay to  Equipment
"This season these abuses hnve
cu'miiiated in such a serious delay
to railway equipment that its evil
effects nre apparent to all, so much so
thnt nt one or two points tlie citizens
and farmers have combined in re-
qiiestiiitr the warehouse commissioner,
if poRsible, to suspend the grain act
temporarily to allow elevators to get
a larger percentage of the cars, so
that they may be enabled to get
their grain out more promptly.
"When it is pointed out that during the senson of 1905 the Canadian
Pacific wns able to get 82 per cent,
of the cars available at grain stations
loaded per day, for the season of 1906
this had dropped to 63 per cent., and
that this season we will average under 50 per cent, of avnilable cars
londed per day, the evil is apparent-.
In other words, it is evident from the
above figures that it is taking, this
season, 160 cars to get the snme result that 100 accomplished two years
ago. This downward tendency can
be ascribed to no other cause than
to the working of the net.
"Innumerable- examples of the
gross abuse of the net, or more properly speaking, of tbe working of the
act, for it provides no restrictions
that will prevent these abuses, might
be given, two or three examples will
serve to illustrate, however.
Flood  of  Bogus Orders
"At one town in Saskatchewan,"
continued Mr. Wliyte, "something
over 800 applications had been made
for cars. It was known by all thnt a
large percentage of the names were
fictitious, in fact, it whs common
talk that the order book contained
lhe names of most of the school children in the distiict. The agent, in
conformity with the grain uct, was
compelled to wade through tbis sen
of nnmes, getting a proportion of the
cars loaded, but in many eases placing the cars uselessly, only to cancel
the order after the car had been held
tlie required length of time. Every
such case, needless to say, costs tbe
railway company money. The situation finally became so acute that the
warehouse commissioner was asked
to investigate the matter by one or
two bona fide applicants. He did so
and many of the nnmes which had
been used to 'pad' the order book
were cancelled. No prosecution followed, however, as the practice was
so widespread it would have involved
the whole community. In fact, it
seemed to be the feeling that if the
case had to come before a jury at
that point there would not be found
enough men themselves innocent of
the practice to try tbe case.
A   Dishonest   Practice
"At another point within the last
few dnys a car was allotted and placed at the loading platform, The applicant on being advised in tbe" usual
way that the car hnd been placed for
him, threw one sack of grain into the
car, thus complying with that clause
of the act which requires that applicant must declare his intention and
ability to load his car and must commence to load within 24 hours. The
placing of the sack of grain in the
car applicant claimed was 'commencing to load.' The car wus not completed until six days later. The above
is a common practice and many instances could be cited.
"The grain producing area west of
Winnipeg is covered by four superintendents' districts. A check made
within tbe last few days of one of
these districts only, showed that on
one day's reports a total of twenty-
two cars had been delayed in loading
from two to six dnys. When it is considered that the suine tiling is happening daily on each of the other four
districts, the delay to n railway company's rolling stock from this source
must be appreciated.
"Again when the farmer has cut
his crop," continued Mr. Wliyte, "he
figures tbat lie will probably start to
thresh at a certain date and he im-

Londonner   Lets   Out  the   First Wall
Against  Ballast  Dropper.
The road hog who whizzes through
town and village leaving a cloud of
dust and a trail of dead dogs and
fowls behind him promises to be surpassed as a public nuisance by the
air hog, now that ballooning is becoming a popular pastime.
Mr. P. P. Warren, writing to The
London Times relates how, as he sat
quietly reading in liis garden in Gloucester road, Kingston Hill, the other
night, a balloon glided over and greeted him with a shower of ballast.
"Good ballast, I have no doubt," says
Mr. Warren: "but when dropped'into
my garden it fulfilled Huxley's definition of dirt.
"What right," he asks, "has a balloonist to shoot his rubbish on me
and my property? I cannot think his
action is legally an act of God; but,
if it is, what a prospect is in view
for peaceful citizens if in a few years'
time air travel becomes a fad of the
vulgar rich!
"Suppose-1 am peacefully tracking
a snail to its lair, and am suddenly
assailed with the tea slops and heeltaps and broken sorts of a millionaire's midair tea party.
"Ail my flock of bad words will
peer out over the fence of my teeth
ready for flight; my wife will tell
Johnny and Amelia tbey must play
more quietly, as poor dada is not feeling well, and a general gloom will
settle over the house. Multiply the
instance and you have a country oppressed as if under the domination
of the Puritans."
As the man wbo flies through the
air has a greater field for his nuu-
ance developments than tbe man who
flics along our ronds, it may appear
advisable, Mr. Warren adds, to get a
strong body of public opinion ready
to crush Uie "air hog" as Boon as he
But, supposing public opinion to be
roused, how is the "air hog" to be
dealt with? How is the action of airships 500 feet or more above the earth
to be regulated?
A correspondent put the question
to Major Baden-Powell, a practical
balloonist and aeroplane inventor
himself. "I told you so," he said.
"There are going to be all manner
of complications when the day of airships comes, and I think Mr. Warren
is a wise man to start thinking about
"But, first of all, I can explain how
the incident of the unfortunate ballast happened. Lately they have taken to putting wet ballast in the bags,
with the result that it falls in clots
and lumps. That's how it is. If it
had been dry ballast the sand would
have simply fallen in a soft, soothing shower that would have done no
"I know a famous balloonist who,
quite recently, dropped wet ballast,
and is smashed through a glass house.
A pure accident, of course, The sort
of thing that might happen to the
best intentioned air traveler. The
owner of the glass bouse made inquiries and found out where thr: balloon started from, the name of the
owmer, and���well, I happen to know
that the owner paid. I should recommend Mr. Warren to claim for
moral damages to his garden, if he
can  find  the   balloonist.
"You see," continued Major Baden-
Powell, "if your balloon is dropping
you cannot stop to consider what is
underneath it. In fact, you are particularly anxious not to find out what
is underneath. You must throw out
"So much for the present. As for
the future there will really have to be
serious legislation when airships become the fashion. But I do not see
how you are going to prevent millionaires emptying teci slops on the heads
of suburban residents if they want
to. You could not take an airships
number; it would be invisible at such
a height. Probably every airship
would be forced to carry ita own refuse box, and midair picnics would
be forbidden."

The Midshipman.
Writing in Harper's Magazine,
Capt. A. T. Mahan says: By luck, I,
for the first time in my life, have
found a plausible derivation for midshipman. It would appear that in the
days immediately after the flood the
vessels were very high at Uie ends,
between which there was a deep
"waist," giving uo ready means of
passing from one to the other. To
meet this difficulty there were employed a class of men, usually young
and alert, who, from their station
were called midshipmen, to carry messages which were not subject for the
trumpet shout. If this explanation
holds water it, like fore-castle, and
after-guard, and knight-heads gives
another instanco of survival of nomenclature from conditions, which
have long ceased. Whatever the origin of his title, it well expressed the
anomalous and undefined position of
the midshipman. He belonged, ao to
say, to both ends of the ship, as well
as to the middle, and his duties and
privileges alike fell within the broad
saying, already quoted, that what was
nobody's business was a midshipman's. When appointed as such, in
later days, he came in "with the hav-
seed in his hair," and went out fit
for a lieutenant's charge; but from
first to last, whatever his personal
progress, he continued, aa a midship*
man, a handy-billy..

Furnishes   Perpetual  Supply  of  Timber   and   Fuel���Conservation
of Water Supply
The setting aside of a timbered tract
of country as a forest reserve does
not mean that this tract is to be a
sort of sacred enclosure within whose
bounds no tree is to be cut. On the
contrary the purpose of setting aside
the reserve is tbat it shall furnish a
permanent and perpetual supply of
timber and fuel for tbe people de-
depending on it��.
In order that tbis object may be
effected, the timbered binds must be
put under proper management, Tbe
central idea of this management is
that the quantity of timber which
shall be allowed to be taken off the
area in any period sball not be greater thnn tbe amount of timber which
is grown on the area during IbiW period. This is the ideal of forest management. Needless to say, the carrying out of this idea meets with various modifications, especially when
scientific management is first introduced.
ln order that this policy may be
carried out, it is necessary to know,
not only the actual iiinount of timber
on tbe reserve at present, but also
tbe rate at which the timber is growing and what amount of timber is being produced. When these have been
found out, tbe amount of timber
which may be removed from the tract
each year may be calculated. It is
to ascertain the points referred to
that parties have been sent out each
summer since 1905 by the Forestry
Branch of the Department of the Interior, in whose charge the management of -the reserves lies.
The number and diameter of the
trees on the tract are arrived at by
going over a certain proportion (previously determined) of the tract,
counting the trees thereon und measuring tbe diameters accurately with
'tree calipers", record of all wliich
is made at the time and kept. The
relation between tbe diameter and
height of the trees are also studied,
for instance, how high a tree four
inches in diameter will be. Kepresen-
sentntive trees of each diameter
are also felled and "stem analyses"
made. From measurements taken
in these "stem analyses" it may be
determined, not only what are tlie
actual cubic contents of tlie tree at
present, but also wbat were the contents of the tree ten, twenty, or any
number of years ago; and from what
it has done in the past, the future
growth of. tlie tree may be arrived at.
liy subsequent calculations in tlie
office it may be determined wbat is
the actual amount of timber (ih
cords, board feet or other measurement) standing on the tract, what is
tbe rate of growth and whnt quantity of timber will grow on tlie tract
in a given period.
Another object for which forest reserves are often set apart is that of
regulating water supply. It is well
known that in regions which have
been stripped of tlieir timber the
streams in spring become torrents,
while during the summer the amount
of water flowing in them is much less
thnn it was during tbe periods before
the timber was removed. The value
of a supply of water, either for manufacturing purposes or for agriculture, depends on the constant How of
the water. Obviously the easiest way
of keeping tbe flow of water constant
is to retain tbe forests, cutting only
the mature timber, wliich ought to be
removed anyway. In several of the
Dominion Forest Reserves, this question of water supply must play an
important part in the management.
Besides these principal objects aimed at���namely, the preserving of a
permanent timber and fuel supply,
and the conservation of tlie water
supply, tbere are various other ends
to be aimed at. In some cases, for
instance, while these objects are the
primary ones, inhabitants of the forest region make considerable money
from the summer visitors who come
there. But the former considerations
are usually head and shoulders above
any others that may be offered, and
must always be of pr;me importance
in the management of the forests.

Care of Tablecloths.
When not in use a tablecloth should
be kept in folded creases and when
brought out to be spread should be laid
on the table and unfolded its entire
length, the width being doubled, with
tfie center crease along the center of
the table. Then the half breadth that
hi folded Bhould be turned back, and
the cloth will hang even. Careless
servants often gather up a cloth "anyhow," without taking the -trouble to
told It up again in its own creases,
and thus fresh ones are made. A tablecloth will keep fresh looking as long
again If it is always folded up ln its
own folds and put away until the next
meal, says Woman's Life.
