The whole of the civilized world will
sympathize with the people of Fernie
and other parts of Crows' Nest region
iu their recent appalling disaster. Incidents of a heartrending nature have
been numerous and the spectacle of
women and children .fleeing to escape
Ihe terrible conflagration, nnd in some
instances to find that escape was cut
off, will be long graven in the memories
oftlio��e who were, unfortunately, eyewitnesses of it all. As is usual in all
such disaslers, many deeds of heroism
iiave b* en recorded and every artificial
barrier of creed and country lias been
swept aside and all have united in rendering help to the unfortunate ones.
Happily the death roll is not as heavy
as was at first estimated.
Ab soon as tbe awful consequences of
the lire became evident, relief com-
inilUes were qnickly formed and food
and other supplies at once foi warded lo
the sufferers and everything possible
was done to alleviate their diatrees.
Subscription lis's weie also opened and
have been heartily respouded'to, donations iieins* Bent in from all parts of tlie
Dominion in d vaiinis points in the

The afflicted ones are bea'ing themselves wiih splendid fortitude, being
thankful to have escaped uiili their
lives; and a cheery spirit of optimism
is everywhere existent. The huge coke
industry is expected to resume in a few
lays, and building permits are being
issued by Mayor Tuttle.
May tbo dawn of a brighter and more
prosperous future await the new town
of Fernie, is a wish (list will be echoed
throughout the length and breadth of
the universe.
From our Correspondent.
On Saturday list a bush fire near tbe
town, which was started, it is supposed,
from a spark of a passing train, caused
considerable excitement. All tlie men
in the town turned out and confined
the fire within a small circle. Fortunately the wind, whicli was blowing a
gale, eventually died down, and although
the fire is still burning uo danger iB

tlie North Dakota State Fair was being

is to be at the Interstate Fair in Spokane was one of tlie marvels of their
bIiow. The airship sailed all over the
fair grounds following the rare boitcs
around the track, and after being pro-
pu led around for an hour lighted in
front of the grand stand. Tlie balloon
then ascended and navigated further
around tlie grounds for 30 minutes. It
has a dynamo which operates a pro-
pellor in front ol tlie balloon which is

The number of birds that go to the
arctic regions to breed is vast beyond
conception. Tbey go not bj thott
sands, but by tens and hundreds ot
thousands, and because nowhere else
ln the world docs nature provide at
the same time and in the same place
such a lavish prodigality of food.
The vegetation consists of cranberry,
cloudberry nud crowberry bushes, and
these,, forced by tho perpetual sun-
ehlne of the arctic summer, bear enormous crops of fruit. But the crop la

the arctic summer, and If the fruit eating birds bnd to wait until It wns rlpo

There is nothing to be gained by growing useless wood from now on. A'so by
removing a certain per cent, of the foliage, to that extent the cambium making
force is reduced, and more thoroughly
ripened wood with leES chances of guni-
osia is the result.
Mow the strawberry bed, rake off the
foliage, ond burn if infested with any
kind of fungous or pes**. Otherwise
leave for mulch and add barnyard compost dressing wherever obtainable. In
places where crown boiers bave bicn at
work, spray tbe plants with lime and

beda unpalatable for the beetles whicli
deposit their eggs at this season, producing the larvae whicli does the injury

so illuminated. Thc idea of using
gas for purposes of illumination lirst
occurred to Mr. William Murdock, a
nativo of Ayrshire, who worked in
tho mines of ltedruth,  Cornwall.
He made his lirst experiments in
1702, at ltedruth. UonSoving in 1798
to the machine making works ot
Messrs. Watt and Uoulton at Birmingham, he there followed up his
experiments, and succeeded in lighting up tho building with gas for
the celebration of tho Pcaco of
The merit of bringing gas light into
use in London belongs to a German
named Winsor, wbo somewhat retarded the success of his schemes by
tho extravagance of liis pamphlets.
Sir Walter Scott wrote from London
that there was a madmon proposing
to light London with���what do you
think'?���why,   with  smoke.
Even the liberal mind of Sir
Humphrey Davy failed to tako in
the idea that gas was applicable to
purposes of street or house lighting.
Yet, Winsor having succeeded after
all in obtaining some supporters,
"the long line between St. James'
Palace and Cockspur street did blaze-
out in a burst of gas lamps on tho
night in question to tho no small
admiration of thc public."
In London, about 1810, before any
company had been established, Mr.
Ackcrmann's shop in the Strand was
regularly lighted with gas. It is
faid thnt a lady calling there one
evening was so delighted with the
beautiful white jets she saw on tho
counter that she offered any money
for permission to carry them homo
to light her drawing-room!
Gas lighting hnd a ridiculous objection to contend with, worthy to
be ranked with that wliich insisted
for years, without experiment, that
the wheels of steam locomotives
would go on whirling without creating any forward movement. It wns
���generally assumed that the pipes
conveying gas would be hot and apt
to produce conflagrations. IVoplo
used to touch them cautiously with
their hands, under tho belief that a
Careless touch would burn them.

the various uses of fruit In relieving

list is worth keeping: Under the category of laxatives, oranges, Ogs, tamarinds, prunes, mulberries, dates, nectarines and plums may be included.
Pomegranates, cranberries, blackberries, sumac berries, dewberries, raspberries, barberries, quinces, pears, wild

Grapes, peaches, strawberries, whortleberries, prickly pears, black currants

her anxiety to the court by appearing

thus remained In ignorance of the sudden nnd complete collapse of her fortunes, she bad one active and energetic
agent wbo had lost no incident of what

said she. "Ah. you do not know your
little sister. Perchance If you were
not my brother you might rate my
powers more highly. One day is all I
ask to bring hlm back."
"But you cannot have It. The marriage is tonight."
"You nre mad, Charles."
"I nm certain of It." Iu a few broken sentences be shot out all that he
bad seen nnd heard. She listened with
a grim face nnd hnnds which closed
ever tighter and tighter as he proceeded.
"I shall go and see him," she cried,
sweeping toward tbe door.
"No, no, Franeolse. Believe me, you
will ruin everything If you do. Strict
orders have been given to tbe guard
to admit no one to the king."
"Had I ouly n day, Charles, I am
sure that I could bring him back to
me. There has been some other Influence here���thnt meddlesome Jesuit
or the pompous Bossuet, perhaps. Only
one dny to counteract their wiles.
Charles, It must be stopped; I say it
must be stopped! I will give anything,
everything, to prevent it!"
"What will you give, my sister?"
She looked at hlm aghast. "What!
You do uot wish me to buy you?" she
"No, but 1 wish to buy others."
"Ha!   You see a chance, then!"
"One,   nnd   one   only.     But
presses.   I want money."
"How much?"
"I  cannoi.  have too much���nil
you can spare."
With hnnds which trembled with eagerness she unlocked a secret cupboard In the wall in which she concealed her valuables. A blaze of jewelry met her brother's eyes as he
peered over her shoulder. At one side
were three drawers, the one over the
other. Sbe drew out the lowest one.
It was full to the brim with glittering
louls d'ors.
"Tako what you will!" sho said.
"And now your plan!   Quickl"
He stuffed the money in handfuls Into the side pockets of his coat. Coins
slipped between his Angers and tinkled mid wheeled over the floor, but
neither cast a glance at tliem.
"Your plan?" sbe repeated,
"We must prevent Uie archbishop
from arriving here. Then the marriage would be postponed until tomorrow night."
"But how prevent It?"
"There are a dozen good rapiers
about the court which are to be bought
for less than 1 carry in one picket. I
will gather tbem together and wait on
the road."
"And waylay the archbishop?"
"No; the messengers."
"Oh, excellent! You nre a prince of

"But consider that before tbe matter
is looked into I shall have regained my
Influence with the king."
"All very line, my little sister, but
bow long Is your influence to Inst? A
pleasant life for us if at every change
of favor we have to fly the country!
No, no, Franeolse; the most thnt we
can do Is to detain the messengers."
"Where can you detain tliem?"
"I have thought of that. There Is
the castle of the Marquis de Montespan nt Portlllac."
"Of my husband���of my most bitter
enemy! Oh, Charles, you are not serious."
"On the contrary, I was never more
so.    The marquis was nwny In  Paris

is no other place where we can hold
them safe."
"But wben my husband returns ?"
"Ah, be may be a little puzzled as
to his captives. And the complaisant
Marceau may have an evil quarter of
nu hour. But that may uot be for a
week, and by that time, iny little sister, I have confidence enough in you
to think that you really may have finished the campaign." He took her
fondly In his arms, kissed her and then
hurried from the room.
For hours after bis departure sbe
paced up and down witb noiseless
steps upon the deep, soft carpet, her
bauds still clinched, her eyes flaming,
her whole soul wrapped and consumed
with jealousy and hatred of her rival.

still she waited, tierce and eager, straining ber ears for every footfall whicli
might be the hernia of news. At lust it

was but six words scrawled roughly

Let Us Be Among the Warm Hearted
Part of Humanity.
I Terchance thc people wbo never
! =peak the word of kindness sponta-
1 leously. but rather seem to refrain
jealously from usiug words of praise,
have such self sufficient or at least
self satisfied natures that tbey do not
realize to the full the great value of
friendly commendation to most people
In this world. What if the praise be
not wholly merited? How few of us
there are who are entirely deserving!
What If the kindly expressions be
somewhat exaggerated? How .small a
number of us there are who would get
nny praise at all were tbe wording of
it coldly fitted to our exact deserts:
Flattery, used and Intended as merely
flattery, Is seldom 'beneficial alike to
the spirits of those wbo receive and to
the consciences of those who give, but
generous praise���ab, that's quite 11 different matter, and none of us knows
just how much good Is sometimes done
liy a friendly word of approbation. Indeed, such words mny come at some
crucial moment and may. more often
tban the giver realizes, help to change
the current of the receiver's nature
from dark despair to buoyant hopefulness. When a person has even temporarily lost confidence In himself,
wben everything In his life seems going wrong, heaven send him the syin-
pabetlc comrade wbo knows when
encouragement Is needed and who by
his openly expressed belief in that person Is able to tide bim over tbe shoals
of desperation!
No Influence Is more helpful, more
Inspiring even, than that exorcised by
the friend who believes In us and Is
deterred neither by coldness nor by
calculation from frequently expressing
that faith. Most of us will make some
endeavor at least to live up to the estimates we know our friends formed of
us, and in our efforts to approximate
those Ideals we shall always find our
surest help In the approving commendation of Ihose comrades. It Is not
enough to feel kindly toward a person,
for, while that may be nil common
friendliness requires, tbe highest, truest comradeship gives more, much
more, nud proves Its depth and sincerity by Its words and notions, by the
outward expression of Its sympathetic,
comprehending feeling. Let us, then,
rather choose to be among the warm
hearted part of Immunity, which, while
it mny err lu too much kindliness in
word and deed, still never falls short
of the Ideal friendship by calculating
Its expressions by tbe rules of absolute
merit or weighing Its actions by the
measures of certain worth In the individual wbo Is to reap tbe harvest of
that friendship.

The proper Quantity of Flaxseed and
When    to    Sow���Prof.   Saunders'   Report.
In a bulletin on flaxseed issued in
April, 1903, by the Dominion Experimental  Farm,  Prof.   Saunders  snys:
"The production of flaxseed in Canada has not yet beeu sufficient t*
meet tlie demands of tlie oil mills.
Hence large quantities are imported
from the United States and from Argentina. Besides this 11 large quantity of linseed oil is imported which
could be profitably made here if tlie
crop of home grown seed were .sufficiently large. The Canadian government has, in tlie interests of agriculture, imposed a dut/ of ten cents per
bushel on flaxseed, and as long ns tlie
demand so largely exceeds the supply
there is a great inducement to farmers to take up tlie sowing of flax on
a large scale.
"Judging from 'h; crops produced and the quality of tiie seed grown
it is evident that tlie conditions of
tlie Nortli West provinces of Canada
aro favorable for tbe production of
flaxseed. ��� As in tlie United States,
the greatest development of this industry is in tlie Nortli West. In
that country, witli its annual product
varying from twenty-five to nearly
thirty million bushels, North Dakota
produces about one-half of the entire cro]), while if tfie product of
plinth Dakota and Minnesota be added these three states contribute more
than three-fourths of the total production."
Prof. Saunders says: "Experiments
made nt the experimental farms nt
Brandon and Indian Head, using 40
lbs and 80 lbs of seed per acre, seem
to indicate that when liax is sown for
seed only, the sowing of 40 lbs to the
acre does not always produce so
heavy a crop ns when 80 lbs. is sown
The yield of seed obtained from tlie
four year tests at Brandon show an
average difference of 23 lbs. per acre
in favor of tlie 80 lbs. of seed, while
nt Indian Head tlie heavier sowing
lias increased the crop to the extent
of 2% bushels per acre. These experiments, however, were conducted
on bind whicli hud been under crop
for several years, and this may hnve
made some difference in tlie results.
On new breaking the general opinion
drawn from experience is that 40 lbs.
of seed per acre is sufficient. With
regard to the best time for sowing
in tlie North West from the middle
to the end of May ts usually recommended. The seed selected for sowing should be plump, well developed,
of good color and free from seeds of
weeds. Where large fields are sown
the seeding is usunlly done with the*
drill." '
Seed sown at the Experimental
Farm, Indian Head, on June 9, 1890.
produced 21 bushels, 10 lbs. per acre,
the quantity of seed sown being 80
lbs. per acre.
Some experienced flax growers hold
that it is safe to grow flaxseed as
late ns June 15th, and that good results huve been obtained sowing even
later, but the general opinion seeing
to be that the best time for sowing if
tlie last two weeks of May and the
early days of June.

Australia's Laughing Bird and Its

To the outside world the greatest ornithological oddity In Australia is the

Irresistibly to tbe newcomer. Like the
shrikes and parrots, the curlew and
the mopoke. it is a conspicuous figure
in the scenery of a typical btisb borne
and therefore too common to be worthy
of notice, lu earlier times it was
known us the "settler's clock" from a
belief that its Joyful paeans were vented regularly at morn, noon and dusk,
being quiescent through the heat of the
forenoon and the wane of the afternoon. That belief bas long been shattered. The kookaburra laughs just
when tlie Ut takes It. particularly wben
excited, and It laughs us readily at the
violent death of Its inotber-ln-lnw as It
does at the enraged settler when he

makes a demoniacal row, which will

Why Negroes Like Watermelons.
The humorists always associate the
African with tbe watermelon, assuming that the taste of the colored man
for his favorite dainty arises from his
life In the southern states, where the
melon vine grows like u weed. As a
fact, however, tbe African tnste for
the watermelon Is hereditary. Tbe
vine Is n native of Africa, where It is
found wild In the great central plains
of thc continent, and has also been cultivated for many ages. In Egypt the
melons grown along the Nile rival
those of southeastern Missouri. Thc
melons mentioned by the Israelites ns
being among the good things they had
lu Egypt were undoubtedly watermelons, for In tbe wall paintings about
the time of the exodus the melon vine
Is represented, and in one case a long
procession of slaves Is depicted, each
bearing on bis shoulder a huge, dark
green  watermelon.
Heir to Old English Title Sought

Where is Sir Genille Cave-Browne

the American authorities, at the request of the British Ambassador, are
endeavoring  to   hud  out.
'1 he missing baronet comes of a

It was, however, an alliance with
trade that brought the family most
j! its wealth, one of the younger sons
marrying tlie heiress of Sir John
Browne, om of London's lord mayors.
This branch of the family adopted tbe
English name, and became Cave-
Brownes, while when the elder line
died out 'and the baronetcy passed
to tlie younger branch another Cave

tlie family became the Cave-Browne-
Sir Genille was only the second
son, but his elder brother, who was
12 years liis senior, died in 18H),
when tlie missing heir was quite a
boy. Tlie latter was packed off in
tho navy at tlie age of 12, and was
serving in a gunboat on the Australian coast when the whole crew dp
sorted ill a gold rush. Young Genille nnd tlie other officers were practically alone on board for several
He left tlie navy, and enlisted in a
Highland regiment, afterwards exchanging into a cavalry regiment. He
took part in tlie second Nile expedition under Lord Wolseley, and subsequently served in India.
He used to tell of a desperate scrimmage with some Pathans in a night

this period, but got into debt, went
to Ihe money-lenders, who informed

for Sir Mylles at Ashby de la Zouch

Wonderful Success of the Modern
Method of Treating Even Obstinate Cases of Indigestion.
The old fashioned methods of treating stomach diseases are being discarded. Tlie trouble with the old
fashioned methods was that when
tlie treatment was stopped the trouble returned in an aggravated form.
Tlie modern method of treating
indigestion, catarrh of the stomach,
or chronic gastritis, is to tone up
tlie stomach and glands to do
their normal work. Every step toward recovery is a step gained, not
to be lost again. Tlie recovery of
the appetite, tlie disappearance of
pain, tlie absence of gns���till are
steps on tlie rond to lienltli that those
who huve tried tlie Ionic treatment
remember distinctly.
Dr. Willinms' Pink Pills are a tonic every constituent of which is helpful in building up the digestive organs anel therefore are the very best
remedy for chronic cases of stomach
trouble. The success of tlie treatment
is shown by hundreds of cures lik_
tlie following:
Mrs. Wm. E. Dunn, Prince Dnle,
N. S., says:���"For upwards of seven
years I was an almost continuous sufferer from stomach trouble, which
was aggravated by obstinate consti-
pation. Food was not only distasteful.
but every mouthful I ate was painful. The trouble so effected my heart
that at times T thought 1 could not
live. I was constantly doctoring, but
did not get the least relief. Indeed
I wps growing worse, and in tlie summer of 1907 had got so bad that 1
went to the City of Boston, where 1
spent some time under tlie care of n
specialist. I returned home, however, no better than when I went
away. Tlie pains I endured were almost intolerable, and would sometimes cause me to drop. I kept getting weaker and weaker and had
practically given up hope of ever
being well again when my mother
urged me to try Dr. Williams' Pjnk
Pills. How thankful I am now that
I took her advice. My case was a
severe one and did not yield readily,
but once nn improvement wns noticed the cure progressed steadily and
satisfactorily, nnd nfter the use of
ton boxes of the Pills I was again n
well woman. Every symptom of the
trouble disappeared, nnd it is years
since 1 enjoyed ns good health ns I
nm doing now. All who knew me
look upon my cure as almost a miracle, and I strongly urge all suffering from Btomach trouble to give
this medicine  a fair trial."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills nre sold
by all medicine dealers or you can
get them by mail at 50 cents n box
or six boxes for $2.50 from The Dr.

lay for three days awaiting the eagle's

bait, one did alight he seized it from

precious feathers before freeing the astonished aud terrified bird. I recall

Amazing Story���Man Thought He Was
a   Woman.
An  amazing  case of  a young man
who has lived twenty-four years as a
girl has just come to light in Essex.
The* case is not one of a masquerade.
It is a most extraordinary one of a
man who all his life has, under peculiar    circumstances,   honestly   and
perfectly   believed   himself   to   be   a
girl, and has acted in every way as
such.   He was registered at birth as a
girl; dressed as a girl; allowed to wear
liis hair as a girl; and in every other
respect treated as a girl.   His name is
Beatrice Alger.   He was born 24 years
ago of poor parents at Walthamstow,
and attended the girl's department of
the   local   board  school.    After leaving school he assisted his parents by
earning money as a female coster, and
with liis long hair, feminine features,
and dress, was a familiar figure.    No
one,   least   of   all   himself,   suspected
his real sex.    The discovery that he
was not a girl came about in an extraordinary manner.    Whilst working
as a flower-girl  in  Chingford  he got
to  know  a  laboring  man.    Early  in
March they were pushing a bassinette
together   along   the  main   street    of
Chingford.   when    a    police-constable
named   Illmnn,  who  knew  the  man,
stopped botli and began to make inquiries    concerning    the    bassinette.
There were pieces of lead in the vehicle, and as a result botli were taken
to tlio Chingford  police station.     To
the  officers  at  Chingford   police  station Alger had been known as n flower
girl  for  years.    The   police  had   not
tlie slightest suspicion.    Tliey had no
cause for it.    Accordingly he wns entered  in the charge-book in  his  real
name of Beatrice Alger, and after the
police  court  hearing  was  committed
for trial at tlie Essex Quarter Sessions
at Chelmsford.   That was the fact that
led to tlie discovery of the real sex of
the   girl-man.       Tlie   prison   doctors
found it out.   Tbey found that whilst
for some years nfter birth Alger might
well be considered to be a girl, there
were   now   certain   reasons   why   he
should be considered a man.    Under
these circumstances all his long hair
was  cut off  before  the  Quarter  Sessions opened, and before lie was placed in tiie dock lie was dressed in full
masculine  garb.    The  plain,  but extraordinary facts that be had actually and always regarded himself as a
girl  and   acted   as   such   were   made
clear.    Details of tlie case were laid
before the justices together with the
pronounced physical change that was
always likely,  and  had  in this  case
taken  place,   and    the   extraordinary
man-woman was liberated at the rising  of  the  court  on   the  offer  of  a
relative by marriage to take him under   control   and   obtain   for   him   a
suitable situation away from possible
evil influences.

children from a watery grave on the

heaviest gales of the year 1907 occurred on the l!itb-2lst February and

The Seven  Prophets.
"The lnte Duke of Devonshire,"
said a diplomat at a Washington dinner, "kept a stud and took a calm
and ducal interest in the races.
"There was a certain sporting paper
that kept a large staff of prophets
and always prophesied the outcome of
important races. The duke, for some
reason, put great reliance in these
prophets and their prophecies. He
always read the paper, and he continually recommended it to his
friends. But once at Goodwood, at
the day's end, n man came up to
the  duke  and  suid:
" 'Whnt of your paper now? Did
you see it this morning? Six prophets
prophesied that six different horses
would win, and here only seven ran,
and tho winner was the seventh,
whicli no prophet had' selected. Well,
what bnve you to say now?'
" 'All I have to sny,' the duke nnswered calmly, 'is that there's room
for another prophet on that paper.'"

Londoners and No. 13.
Londoners are a superstitious people, as shown by the huge directory
of tlie city. From this ponderous book
some one curiously inclined has figured out Unit something like 21.8 pel-
cent, of London street have no No. 13.
The Strand, Holborn, St. James'
Btreet, Holborn Viaduct, Bloomsbury
street, Ludgate Hill, New Cut, New-
ington Butts, Ciidogan street, Eaton
place, lor instance, have no thirteen.
The superstitious belong to no particular district or class. Charles street,
Berkeley square, is without a "13,"
and so is Hounds ditch. Clanricade
gardens, Kensington, Frith street, So-
ho, all make the same concession
Vou would think tint Bayr.watir was
the home of common sense, but West-
bouriie Park road, villas, and crescent, and Wcstbour.ie square haven't

Bunyan's Sharp Answer.
John Bunynn wrote "The Pilgrim's
Progress" in Bedford Jail, where he
was confined for bis religion. A Quaker cane to the prison aud thus addressed hlm:
"Friend Bunyan, the Lord hath sent
me to seek for thee, ond 1 have been
through several counties In search of
thee, and now 1 am glad 1 bave fouud
Bunyan replied, "Friend, thou dost
not speak truth In saying the Lord
sent thee to seek for me, for the Lord
well knows thnt 1 have been In this
Jail for some years, ond if he had sent
thee he would huve sent thee here directly."
That Gas Bill.
"Say," exclaimed thc irate flat dweller as he rushed into the gas office, "do
you mean to say this bill represents
the amount of gas we burned last
"Not necessarily," calmly replied the
