Ci.eaiuno operations are com*
mencing early this year, as a result
of the dry weather we have been
having. In several directions logging tires have been in progress
during the wpek.
The weather during the past
week has been delightfully bright
and pleasant. On the higher land
a day's rain would do good, but on
the river flats the ground is in good
shape for working.
Tiie Queen's Birthday celebration at Langley promises to he a
most enjoyable affair, The programme covers all the usual sports
and pastimes, and all who attend
may safely count on a pleasant

Tiiout fishing in this vicinity ap-

Light & Whittaker, the enterprising lessors of Mr. Jos. Shannon's
farm back of the town site, supply
Master McElmon with gun and
ammunition and pay him 50 cents
a day to keep the pigeons off the
grain fields. As all the birds killed
belong to Fred, there is a rumor
that a grand pigeon-pie festival is
in contemplation.
A concert will be held in the
Town Hall, Surrey Centre, on
Thursday, May 30th, in aid of the
building fund of the Nicomekl
church. The entertainment will
consist of songs, dialogues, recitations, etc., with an intermission
for coffee and cake. Tickets and
programmes can be obtained before
the date on application to Mrs.
Hornby, Nicomekl, Miss Watson,
Kensington Prairie, and the Rev.
Mr. Bell, Surrey Centre. Doors
will open at 7,80, p. m. and the
concert commence at 8 o'clock,
sharp. Admission 25 cents: children under 12 ten cents.
i\ while ago some of our townspeople were considering the advisability of having the name of Cloverdale post-office changed. The fact
that there are three or four other
Cloverdales in Canada and the
United States has on some occasions resulted in tbe missending of
important letters, and everything
considered nothing would bo lost
and something might be gained by
renaming the town. If a move is
made in that direction now is the
best time to make it, and as this
paper favors the proposition, we
would be glad to hear what our
readers have to suggest in the way
of a new name. An appropriate
Indian word would be peculiarly
desirable. To any one suggesting
such a word, to be approved by a
committee of townspeople, we will
send Suuiiky Times free for one
year.
I'm: home of Mr. John Bond, of
Cloverdale, is a house of mourning.
On Sunday evening hist at N..'!()
his youngest daughter. Mary Elizabeth, passed to her rest, after a
prolonged and painfull sickness
home with astonishing fortitude in
one so young. Deceased bad nol I
yet reached her sixteenth year, and!
had been confined to bed for over a j
year with that cruel malady hip
disease. Early in July lust, the
anxious parents, realizing the seriousness of the complaint and'
hoping much from the medical
skill of Westminster city, arranged
for the removal of the patient to
the hospital at Sapperton, where
she remained until 7th February.
The disease, however, had passed
beyond medical skill, and the
youthful sufferer was brought home
again to end her days amidst familiar surroundings, though the over
sanguine parents still hoped up to
the lust, tti reopver their loved one
by tender and ever vigilant nursing. But it was not to he, and us
above staled on Sunday evening
death put an end to the sufferings
of the youthful patiunt. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon, and was conducted by the
Oddfellows, of whioh Society Mr.
Bond is a member. Rev. Mr. McElmon was tbo officiating clergyman. There was a largo attendance
of friends und neighbors, who followed the remains to the cemetery
at Surrey Centre as a last token of
respect to the departed and of earnest sympaty with the bereaved
family.
An entertainment and supper
under the auspices of the ladies
of Surrey, in aid of the funds nf
the Cloverdale Oddfellows, will be
held in the Oddfellows Hall here
on the evening of Friday, June 7th.
A most enjoyable programme is
being arranged, and tbe ladies will
acquit themselves with credit, as
they always do. The admission
fee will be 25 cents. Later in the
evening, there will he a dance, for
which an additional charge of 25
cents will be made—ladies free of
course,
NEEDED repairs are being made
on tlie Clover Valley road south of
the Starr Hotel. Mr. McClinton, of
Clayton, has the contract from the
Council, and is now gotting the
corduroy on the ground. The repairing of this short gap was necessary in order that our neighbors of
Nicomekl may have the full benefit
of that portion of the road constructed by the Government. last
year.
The crop of wild fruit, like the
cultivated, promises abundance
this year. Here we have the salmon berry, black cap raspberry,
the trailing blackberry, high bush
and low bush cranberries, and two
or three kinds of huckleberry, to
say nothing of several other vari-
ties not held in much esteem.
Wild crab apples, too, are plentiful,
and make a fair jelly.
Quite a large fire has been in
progress during the week at the old
Royal City logging camp, a few
miles south of here. The decaying
tree tops will get a clearing out,
and probably, too, the wild blackberry vines will get a scorching,
Ho that there will be no such abundance of the delicious fruit as there
was last year.
A (iitAND celebration at Ladners
is announced for Friday next, the
Queen's Birthday. The entertainment to be provided for visitors
consists of horse races, boat races,
athletic sports, foot ball, shooting
competition, etc., the whole to end
with a grand ball.
Du. Sutherland has completed
the purchase of the house and acre j
of orchard here, formerly owned
by Mr. John McMillan, and take*
possession at once. Mr. and Mrs.
Sutherland went to Westminster
yesterday to select furniture.
A I'Aiirv of three hear hunters
from the American side spent ten
days in this neighborhood lately,
returning home last week. While
here they killed live bears, and
captured two cubs.
On two or three nights during
the week there have been light frosts
here. Not enough to affect the
fruit, but sufficient to show on the
potato tops in patches.
As wo go to press the sky is
clouded over, and the indications
are for rain.   It is needed.
Duluth, Minn., May 13.—Heavy
frosts are reported all over this

Langley Township.
Corraflpondfliicfl BunitBY Timkb.
A meeting waB held in the public
School house at Langley Prairie,op
Tuesday, the 7th instant, to form
a local branch in connection with
the organization of the Patrons of
Industry in this Municipality.
There was a large attendance, the
building being well filled on the
occasion, Mr. .lames S. Cray, ex-
Reeve, was voted to the chair and
Mr. A. H. Hawkins, B. A., acted as
Secretary. Tbe objects of the society were fully set forth by Mr.
Oliver, who was asked to explain
the advantage to be attained by
joining the society and tlje prnti-
eal methods by whioh it wan curried
on. His statements having given
satisfaction to those present, it v.i
arranged that in order to give il
better effect to the objects to he
gained, two branches, one for the
north and one for the south of
Langley district, should he formed.
Your leader in the SURREY Times
of the 10th instant on this subject
comes in opportunely as a warning
to the members resident here who
join the Sncioty of Patrons of Industry, not to allow political adventurers to mar their enterprize,
but in this direction to use politics
(o further their own projects, and
not allow themselves to he used
as tools by any party to their own
disadvantage. It is to be hoped
that the newly formed association
in this district will be joined and
support ed by the farmers whose
interests in many ways will, it is
confidently stated, bo promoted by
the operations of the Society, and
advantages gained by the united
action which it will be impossible
to attain without union into a
body such as the Patrons of Industry profess to be.
A tramp, it is supposed, entered
the dwelling bouse of William
Armstrong, a thrifty young farmer
residing on the Armstrong road
about, three miles from Langley, on
Sunday the 12th instant, whilst he
was absent for a short time visiting
his father near dy, anil stole his
silver watch and gold chain which
he hud laid under bis pillow, and
50 cents |n cash out of his pants
pocket, which were banging on the
wall, but missed a roll of notes in
the sume pockets. He also rifled
a table drawer but did not abstract
anything from it, although there
were some trifles of vulue therein.
He wus not observed in the neighborhood, and so got off with his
booty.
The Queen's Birthday celebration is likely to attract many, as
the programme of events will he
ample for a good day's amusement.

C. P. B. Freight Rates.
Ottawa, Out., May 11.—The report of the Commissioners appointed to investigate the com-
plaints against the C. P. R., on
account of freight rates in Manitoba and the Northwest Territories,
was laid on the table of the House
yesterday, It is entirely against
the complaints, as not lieing well
founded in any particular. They
say some of the heaviest shippers
in Winnipeg had no complaint to
make, and that there was almost
entire absence of complaints from
heavy freight handlers. All shippers are on the same footing, they
find, and no discrimination exists,
They add that comparison
of the schedules does not bear
out the charges that rates in
Manitoba and the Northwest
Territories are cither "exorbitant or excessive." On the con-
trary, they nre declared to be exceedingly favorable, compared with
the rates of American roads in excess of the average rates charged
on corresponding traffic in the eastern Provinces. When it is considered that the great hulk of the
traffic, grain, live stock, and coal,
! in the west, entails the hauling of
about 75 per cent, of the cars
empty one way, they consider the'
rate on coal, 87-100ths of one per
cent, per mile, very low. The
Commissioners observe that, in
view of the fact thnt the C. P. R.,
own 18,000,000 acres of unsold
land 3,000 miles of road in Manitoba und the Northwest Territory,
their interests and those of the
settlers are identical, and add,
"Any policy, other than favorable
to the settlers, would be simply
suicidal."

Nutriments.
All nutriments consist of two leading
elements—carbonates and nitrates. The
former answers to charcoal, which when
burned throws out beat.    Oil, butter, fat
meat mid sugar belong to the carbonates
or heating foods, in a hundred parts of
oil there are nearly a hundred parts (if carbon or warmth, it is the same with sugar. Hence in cold weather our system demands more fats and sweets Ihun in sum
mer.
The nitrogenous foods make muscles and
impart strength.   Bice, beans, potatoes,
wheat, corn, outs, beef, etc., belong to
this) class. Some of these havo also a largo j
proportion of the carbonaceous elements.
Wheaien grits, crushed wheat and graham bread have nil tlie elements needed
to give warmth and Btrength to the body
and would keep it in strength nnd vigor
even it DOtblng else were eaten for months
together. In Scotland) we nro told, whole
families mako their entire breakfast
throughout tha year on oatmeal porridge,
While beans have 57 per cent of nutriment .-dayI should bo eaten more than they
are.   In selecting from tho meats beef will
tie fonnd to bu the cheapest and most.
wholesome. Good steak contains 85 per
cent of nutriment—10 of nltrogeu and ll
of carbon - 9 per cent Is brain feeding material, called phosphates. We might continue the list Indefinitely, but it will be

facts and give tho subject careful study.—

western   university whero  her education
had been completed she realized that she
merely hnd learned what sho wished to
know. Tho acquisition of this knowledge
was to be the purpose of ber future life.
Among the mnny well fixed ideas In hor
very clever little mind tho best fixed was
her ability to care for and direct herself.
Sho was independent of intellect, which
sho worshiped, and of body, which she nf-
fected to despise. Thero wns no reason
why she should not become a Hypatlu—
even If Hypatiu was beautiful.
True, there was ber guardian, Amos
Grant ley—it was to his homo tn the eastern metropolis whither sho was now bound
—but so long as she did not exceed her allowance ho would never Interfere with her
plans. As for his wife and daughter, they
treated hor with that deferent affection
which a prodigy intuitively demands.
Miss Driscoll's itinerary took ber over u
little traveled road through a sparsely inhabited country. There were but fow passengers in the car with her—indeed there
seemed but few on the train, judging from
the leisure which tho negro porters found
for card playing and reveling in a ronr
section. For some renson they wero unruly nnd boisterous, but Winnie didn't
mind their conduct, for she ignored it.
She bore with her a folio work on philosophy, and it was nn togis against distrac-
tion. As for tho lack of society, she was
vastly pleased. People who have never
written surely could not compare with
those who had. Coquetry was beyond her
litany. She needed no deliverance from it.
Tbe modern young man she contemned ns
the shadow of un ideal. Had hers been
tho days of Wallace or Nelson, or even
Kllswtirth, she might have deemed love a
subject worthy of mature deliberation.
Hut as it was she wns skeptical of Its existence and contemptuous of its nature if
it did exist.
There was a young man on her very car,
nn unobjectionable, unassuming young
man apparently, since he kept his seat and
also rend. That was right. It would be
hypercritical to blame him for being
where be doubtless had n right to be.
Therefore let him go into oblivion with
tbo porters, Winnie did not oven trouble
herself, for it would have been n trouble,
to scan his facu. For ono thing, she was
nearsighted — a defect which gave a
dreamy charm to her eyes—for nn other,
she was quite too interested to risk losing
her place.
Ouo dny in tlie loneliest part of this
lonely journey there was much jolting and
stopping and backing of t rain and shrieking of engine. Any ordinary young woman would have put her head out of the window, to the detriment of her hat, but Winnie considered neither the commotion nor
her bonnet. If there hnd been a collision
ahead aud nil running on time was disarranged, she presumed that tho trainbands
understood their business. She certainly
did hers, which was to improve her mind.
However, toward evening, whon they
reached nn isolated hut called tbo "junction" and the car iu which she rode wns
shunted on a siding, nnd the train went
ou without it, nml there were no sights
uor sounds of the train on the bisecting
road, whioh was to annex and draw it,
then Winnie deigned tu make inquiries,
for she had not planned to camp out,
which produced both chagrin and alarm.
She learned thnt the connection had been
missed, and that the car must remain
there for i.'4 hours. She perceived that ber
Informant, tbu porter, was insolent and
intoxicated, nnd thnt several of ins associates, in similar condition, too, bad contrived to be left with him. Hut Winnie
hnd tho stout honrt of. inexperience. Her
personal dignity had always sustained her
in tbe crises of school life. She therefore
relied upon a veil as if it were a shield.
When tbe porter roughly nnnounced that
"those who wanted to eat had better up
stump lively to tho hotel, a mile distant
down the crossroad," she shrugged hor
shoulders and said she wasn't hungry,
thus proving her allegiance to the state of
pupilage, and resumed her rending. The
rest of the company—two fat and selfish
middle aged men, intent on cocktails; au
old couple with an irritable grandchild
aud tho modest young man—departed.
None of them heeded her except tins latter, who advanced and hesitated and stopped, and then, discouraged by her iudifTer
ence, wont Ids way.
So the girl was left alone, as she thought,
and tbo lighis blinked nnd glimmered,
and the night came down, not durkly, but
like n mountain mist. From the wood is
sued the murmur of insects and the ripple
of a brook, a lulling sound of which she
was conscious, ns one who listens to Hinging Is conscious of an unobtrusive accompaniment. Hut of a sudden her thoughts
leaned from tho page to herself—her physical self, now revealed as a shrine most
precious, most sacred. Within thnt peaceful lullaby other sounds were obtruding,
faint indeed, but awesome from their very
obscurity. Was thero not a stealthy step?
Oil, was thero not n stilled breathing?
Winnie sprang to her feet and looked
about. She caught one glimpse of n dark,
crouching form, one gleam from wickedly
glowering eyes. She flung her heavy volume full in tho wretch's face and then
sped through the car to tho ground aud
along tho road. I
The way was winding, threading the
wood with the eccentricity of embroidery. I
in tlie west the twilight struck on a gilt-!
tering object high In the air, It was tho
bull on the flagstaff of thu hotel, aud to
Winnie a star of hope. As sho ran she
prayed, and as sho prayed she listened.
At first there were wrathful cries nnd
heavy following trends.  Then these faded
awny, and with the silence came reassurance. She was safe. Perhaps her danger
bad never been real. But, oh, how frightened sho wus, and, oh, how bard she struggled on! A great sorrow for herself enthralled her—such a poor, frail, littlo thing
alone In tbe gloomy wood! Hut was she
alone? O Uud, into what evil bad she rushed <* For as sho turned a bend thnt led
through a veritable thicket from either
sidoa burly form sprang out and seized her.
Then Winnie serenmed—sho who hud
ever ridiculed such weakness—a thrilling,
piercing cry thnt asserted itspotency. For,
oh, thero was an answering shout—such a
brave, manly huzza—tbo dash of rapid
feet, a tierce thrust, u violent full, a stalwart blow, nnd some one grasped her hand.
"Can you run:'" asked this somo ono.
"Yes, yes!" gasped the girl.
"Come un, then, fur your life!" And
down the road fled the intellectual Miss
Drtscoll, clinging with the grip of terror
tu a strange man.
Alt, but be could run, could this unknown! Even bis great assisting Btrength,
even the impulse uf tlie avengers behind,
could scarce give equality to Winnie's feet.
And yet she had been so reliant on ber
physical training! Ah, but she bad never
been prepared against tbe tremors of such
an emergency. Sho bad never dreamed
(bid such depravity could exist, much less
dare to maintain its mysterious horrors,
Never again would she boast of her Independence, if this masculine strength
would only suffico to drag her into safety,
well content wouldshe lie to cling to it for
tbo remainder of her life. Her heart swelled within her throat. Her limbs shook
and faltered. Connected thoughts deserted her. She was merely conscious of lighting through the darkness against the clog
of Iter own weakness. On, on sho dragged
and was dragged, up hills ami over plains,
tint il u curve sent a sudden Hash of light.
Her comrade gnvo an exultant shunt and
raised ber   iu Ids arms as she staggered.
Then on nml on In a final hurst until be
bore her fainting into the hotel. It was
Die following day when Winnie regained
her identity. A motherly looking woman
stood by her bedside, assuring her of lier
safety ami of her speedy recovery from exertion and frigid. And indeed the girl's
strong vitality assorted itself, and in security she shook off the effects of her adventure ns one rejects iho remembrance
of nightmare. One particular, however,
she cherished, and that tenderly.
"But that young man who aided mo?"
she asked. "Whero Is her"
"Him is it--" replied tbo landlady, "A
proper young gentleman, to lie sure, so
anxious und so liberal, ilo hud tlio whole
house aroused in your service. Hut when
the physician said you would bo all right
after a sleep, why, ho rode away to the
county seat, where, it seems, ho bad important business."
"But bis name?" Winnie faltered.
"Lord lovo you, miss, bo didn't leave
no name. He was that hurried, and we
wns that flustrated, nud bim so ready and
free with his money I"
Winnie sighed and grew thoughtful, but
her thoughts wero not of ber book.
"You bad this 'ere clinched in your little hand," continued the matron, producing an antique intaglio ring. Winnie
blushed ns she furtively but vainly examined it in search of nn inscription. Then
she placed it ou her finger nnd with feminine craft soon bad tbe worthy woman engrossed iu personal reminiscences.
It was a month Inter that throughout
ber guardian's homo there was a pleasurable excitement, which seemed silly to Winnie. Tlio idea of such a fuss being made
over tbo entertainment of nn old woman
nnd her son nt dinner! They were not even
strangers either, for Mrs. Neames wns the
widow of her guardian's former partner
and still retained a share iu tlie business,
nnd Ambrose, tho son—what a ridiculous
name", reminding one of hair oil!—was Ids
confidential clerk. True, as little Miss
Urantloy explained, "Papa hnd high respect for the lady ou account of ber uncommon strength of chnracter, and nn
equal esteem for tbe young man for his
fidelity and truth." Butwhatof tfaatf All
women wero respectable, and all only sous
amiable, but of this particular couple
Winnie wns quito prepared to ignore the '<
one and to despise tlio other. I
Indeed since her nrrival Miss Driscoll's
good friends had been perturbed by a certain petulance and perversity quite foreign to her past. She was irritable, yet;
apathetic. Her appetite was fitful, her
industry eccentric. There was dust on
her philosophical tomes, while under her
pillow tbe maid found n volume of poetry.
"Can she be in love?" asked Mrs. Grant-
ley, recalling her own maidenhood,
"Why, mamma," replied the daughter,
"how absurd! She hates men nud never
ceases from ridiculing them."
Winnie descended to meet the guests
with un air more befitting a dismissal than
n welcome. She found a stalely nnd
weighty dame, with colorless, almost livid
complexion nnd aggressively rolled white I
hair, nnd a demure young mnn, brown of
haii nud eyes nnd mustache.
With the mental comments "virago"
and "ninny" she gave herself over to hospitable cares. Her companion at dinner
doubtless thought her taciturn, but then
his mother furnished a ready excuse. The
old lady was discursive and on a subject,
too, which might have proved embarrassing to n more resoluto appearing young
man, but Ambrose merely smiled affably.
She discoursed on tho tantrums of bis
childhood, the misdemenuors of his youth
nnd tho fuilings of his maturity nnd ascribed great credit to ber watchfulness that
be was no worse than lie was,
"I keep tho reins pretty tight yet," continued Mrs. Neames. "No night key, no
cigars or cards—a strict reckoning of every cent expended."
"Hut we all lean on Ambrose in tho office," ventured Mr. Urantloy.
"I know. Wo talk business over every
night, and I tell him what to do." |
Winnie Studied the young man beneath
her glasses. Was he uot nshamed when
even she, a stranger, could blush for him?
Apparently nut at all. He seemed to glory
In Ids subjection, now and again agreeing, "Yes, mother. I don't know how 1
could get along without your advice," and
nil the while doing ample justice to the
viands. What Insensibility I What Ignorance of the rights uud privileges of glorious manhood! Alas, there were no longer
nny men, or if there wero they came and
disappeared like veritable gods! I
The anxious mother kept, her eyes sharply engaged with her son's conduct. When
champagne wns served, she cried out to
tbo butler, "Mind, only a half glass for
that boy," nud then, "Fill it with water,
Ambrose." Aud Ambrose smilingly obeyed, while the butler nearly dropped the
cooler in consternation, and Winnie's highly intelligent nose expressed its highest
degree of contempt.
A singular young man surely, noticeable on account of his defects. Well, it was
remarkable for a modern young man to
even attain distinction in this line! Why
didn't lie talk? Because sho was reserved
that didn't excuse him from hisobilgatiou
of attention. But no, be seemed thoroughly content to smirk and gorge nud say,
J
"Yes, mamma," nnd "No,mamma," Ilka
a roundabout having an outing.
At length Mrs. llruutley's signal gave a
welcome relief, which faded before a
shock, for as Ambrose Neames bowed and
drew hack her chair ho whispered to Winnie with an undeniable air of tenderness:
"Only for a few moments. Our memories
share a responsive chord, you know, which
will draw me to you." Wus the man daft
or simply and naturally Insolent? Winnie's head was proud indeed. Her dreamy
eyes flashed angrily as she replied:
"Chord!" she repeated flippantly. " 'Tis
apron string you mean."
In tho drawing room Mrs. Neames, to
further exemplify ber strength of character, went to sleep without any dissembling.
This gave Winnie a chance to gratify
hor curiosity, which, regardless of her iu-
difference, bad become exigent.
"Toll me, auntie," she asked, "why
does that young man—why does every oue
defer so ridiculously to her?"
"Hush, my child," said Mrs. Grantley.
"Why, don't you know? She is liable to
heart stroke and must be saved from any
excitement. Such filial submission in a
great, strong man seems noble to me."
After this explanation Winnie retired to
a corner and pondered. Nor did sho emerge
therefrom until tho guest nrousod with a
start and forthwith talked vociferously,
as if continuing nn animated conversation. Then sho sprang to tbo old lady's
side and attended upon ber with surprising gentleness, Mrs. Neames, however,
did not make such responses ns ibis consideration merited. She seemed preoccupied. Her gaze was fixed—fixed with a
glare on tlie young girl's bund. Finally
she spoke, nnd lier voice might hnvo embellished any ono uf the fates.
"Where did you got my son's ring?" she
asked.
"Please, ma'am, ho left it with me—
that is, I borrowed it, just, to look at, you
know," stammered the discomfited Winnie us sho Incontinently retreated into her
corner. How Iter cheeks burned, and bow
her heart thumped, even as tt had during
that terrible race! She felt us if every eye
rested ou lier wilh suspicion. (Hi, what
should she dor Surely Ihey—surely lie
would understand thntshehnd not known
that lier intense grip bed removed and restrained tlie ring. Shu would explain, but
how would Bhedaro faco him after ber disdain? Ah, there lay the sting! No ono for
an instant would doubt ber story, but
would lie not despise her nature? Then
was life forever after an impenetrable
gloom I If this brown, subdued, demure
young mun wus tlio hero of ber dreams,
who hnd diverted every impulse of hor soul
during the past month, then ho was no
longer brown and subdued and demure,
but altogether glorious and worshipful.
Aud what a miserable little fool she bad
been not to perceive it I Granted thnt she
was near sighted, a blind person of any discernment must have recognized nt once
bis grand personality. Had she, then, sinned beyond forgiveness? No. Surely one
so noble would ignore her flippancy, even
as the lion scorns tho yelping of a jackal.
Hut was such forgiveness what she craved?
Ah, fluttering heart, even to thyself thou
dost not confess thy desiresl
Thero were pleasant sounds of laughter, nnd tho men entered. Winnie watched
Ambrose Neames with eyes of adulation.
How gentle, how gallant he was—so considerate toward bis mother, so courteous
toward his entertainers! Ah, modesty was
the only panoply befitting a knight without fear or shame! A grent gratitude
swelled within tlie girl and overmastered
every other emotion. He had risked his
life to save her, a stranger, from worse
than death. No conventional scruple should
restrain tlie expression of her appreciation.
With a gesture which seemed imperious,
because it wns impatient, she called him
to iter side.
"Shall wo sound that chord, Miss Drls-
coll?" he began gayly. "Or do you think
that so dull a slave can have no thought
save of slavery?"
"Oh, don't—pray don't!" Winnie pleaded. "Forgive me. I didn't recognize you.
Oh, you were so good!" And before he
could comprehend or stay the emotion she
bent and kissed his hand.
Ambrose Neames Pushed and flamed
with passion. No ono surely could deem
him a brown, subdued nnd demure young
man, and least of all could Winnie, lie
seemed a god manifesting his divinity.
"I would rather have died than have bud
y>u do that," he cried. "I am the oue to
worship—to worship you forever. Can't
you feel—don't you know that from the
instant I saw you I have loved you?"
Winnie sighed—oh, so tenderly!
"Ambrose," she murmured, "Ambrose
—what a dear name!"
At this juncture t here was a sharp, discordant interruption.
"My son," rasped Mrs. Neames' voice,
"that young miss there has your grandfather's ring, which you said you had
lost!"
"Yes," whispered the girl, "I have your
ring, and—and I'll keep it if you liko."—

The jailer hns to resort to all sorts of
expedients at times to get inebriated prisoners to go quietly into thecellroom. Of

be is quarrelsome or very particular, aud
as it is not desired to use force to get such

Not long ago one of these supersensitive

Coloring Leather.
In place of the ordinary method which
has been pursued in the coloring of leather
—namely, first to tan the skins nud then
to dye them—a process has been brought
forward by a Germnn Inventor, by which,
it is claimed, both time and labor nre
economized—that is, briefly, instead of
first tanning tho skins, as commonly practiced, this new system consists in placing
them in the color bath, nnd after remaining there some 24 hours they nro trented
in tho ordlnnry way with alum and snlt,
The preference claimed for this plan over
thnt which is nt present lu vogue is that It
saves the washing, treating with acid and
the various methods resorted to for restoring to tho skin the suppleness it loses hy
the washing.

What a locomotive engineer requires

ho might just as well quit his profession
at onco, for ho will not be a fit man to
trust In tho cab of an engine. Instances
nro numerous of engineers abandoning
their culling because they have become
timid. It tukes a wonderfully cool and
confident mun to run nn engine going at
a high rate of speed around a curve or Into
a tunnel. It Is liko taking a leap tn the
dark. Sometimes an engineer will lose
his norvo through a very trivial oauso.

Not to mention slight accidents, bo wns

that lie bore u charmed life. Within tho
last five years Donohtio's life was Imperiled
five times. About tlio middle of Decern
bur, 1HU1, lie ran, bead on, Into tlm roar of
n freight (rain near Slug Slug. Ills un
glno wnsde died, several freight cars wero
soon ablaze around him, and lie only escaped deatii by being dragged from his cab
by his faithful fireman, P. L. Greene.
On Christmas evo of thnt year n freight

Hastings. A flagman waa sont baok to
warn approaching trains. He stepped Into
tho station at Hastings, and while there
the fast mall thundered by unwarned.
In less than a minute afterward Donahue's engine rounded the curve north of
Hastings, and ho was Instantly confronted
with a vision of sudden death. Reversing
his englno and applying the brakes, he
dropped upon tho floor of his cab, and then
the englno plunged Into the wreck. By a
miracle he was saved. The heavy tender,
Instead of crashing Into tho cab, as Is usually the case In suoh accidents, rose In the
atr and tumbled upon the cab's roof,
where It was held fast. Then Greene, the
fireman, who had previously Jumped from
tho engine, came to his rescue and pulled
him out of the already blazing wreck.
Fourteen Uvea wore lost on that dreadful
night.
Shortly after this Occident the unlucky
engineer ran Into a local train at Tarry-
town, and lust year, while running the
samo englno, he collided with another engine at the second signal tower below Sing
Sing. His locomotive was derailed and
plunged over the river wall Into the Hudson, and Donohuobad another miraculous
escape. In all of thoso accidents and In
every other one In which ho was concerned
Donohue stuck to his engine to tho last.
Even in the late accident at Kblneollff,
that cost him his life, ho plunged into the
Hudson with his engine and whs found at
his post, with bis hand on tbe lever, scalded from head to foot The cause of this
accident was tho audden wrecking of a
freight which threw several cars in front
of his engine on the south bound track.
Anothor bravo engineer la John Burns
of the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern
road. Some yean ago ho was attached to
englno 84, that hauled the fast New York
and Chicago express westward from Buffalo. Ho started out with his train one
miserable day when a light snow was falling that obscured his vlow aboad. Mainly
on account of It ho soon fell behind time.
Between Buffalo and Irving station thero
la a long down grade stretch, and here
Burns attempted to oatch up to the schedule by running of 66 miles nn hour.
Approaching on the other track was a
fast nnd heavily laden cattlo train. About
a mile oast of Irving station this train
was badly wrecked. Two of tho cars were
thrown across tho west bound track on
whioh Burns was approaching at tremendous sliced. Ho was within a hundred
feet of the wreck before It was possible for
him to seo that anything waa wrong.
Then ho took In tho situation at a glance.
There wero but two courses between which
to choose. He.could reverse bis engine,
apply tho nlrbrnko and jump from his engine, nnd thus, In all likelihood, save hla
own life. But his train could by no possibility bo stopped In time to prevent a tor-
rible wreck of the passenger coaohea. The
il her course was to throw open the valve
und try to drive the great engine at lightning speed clear through the wreck. Then
was scarcely ono dianoo In ten that ho
could succeed in tills and bring the passenger coaches through with nothing
worse than a terrible shaking up. Abandoning his own chances of safety, the
brave fellow shouted to his fireman, "Tear
hor wide open!'' and sent No 84 crashing
through tbo cattle oars. Fortunately tbt
locomotive kept the rails and carried the
coaches with her.
COLORADO'S WOMAN VOTERS.
Bow Their Franchise Came About aud
Bow Thoy Will Bo Likely to I'm. It.
Stump speakers can now say "Follow
citizens" iu Colorado instead of "JUa-
dieB nnd gentlemen," for, nan Colorado
woman writes to tho Chicago Tribune:
"Wo women of Colorado hnvo equal
suffrage, or equal suffrage has us. I
haven't quite figured out which. Tho
women who camo out of tho dust and
smoke of battle with tbe light of victory on their faces say wo have suffrage
—und they ought to know, for thoy
studied it ull up beforehand and knew
what it mount—und tulk about primaries and polls with nn easy familiarity
that ia awo Inspiring. Hut as for tho
rest of as—well, wo hnvo lota to learn.
Of course wo expected to get tho right
to vote, but wo find thnt carries a
great many otbor rights that wo thought
the men would ho good enough to fit-
tend to just as we wanted them to without leaving us any bother.
"It's all the other way. First of all,
in the cities wo hnvo to register under
tho Australian ballot law, get under a
measuring machine, huve tho color of
our oyes determined aud our weight
noted, and otherwise contribute tu thef.
answering of U0 odd questions, among
which is tlio plump, point blank conundrum, 'Howold are you?' Distinguishing physical characteristics also go
down in tlm book. Ono woman naively
told tho clerk sho wus a twin und has
not recovered her good temper yet 1
don't know what awful result will follow if a couple of thoiumnd W01110H urn
challenged a week or so boforo election
by tbo political machines.
"The next thing Is Unit if women do
not tako an Interest in conventions and
primaries und ull thai, you know, they
will find their choice restricted to two
or threo men with whose selection they
had nothing lo do, and that does not
seem right. Wo must join iu tlm push,
my husband says, while bo chuckles
away. Unless some of Iho dour sisters
aro belied, just tho samo, tlio men will
find out tt filing or two. Tlio very day
aftor election, when it was certain WO
had won, tlm discovery was mado that
tho wives of several politicians, ouo
of them actually under un assumed
name, wero members of tho bntlrngo association and bad begun to swing it for
their parties and incidentally, no doubt,
their husbands. Several odors of clerk- .
ships under tho new county officers
wero made, but to tlm honor of tho
women who did tbo campaign work not
an offer was accepted, aud tlio attempt
at influencing wns exposed at tbo next
meeting. Tho association adopted a decisive ro political plunk and took measures for tho blackballing of political
women. We're traveling on a high
plane, 1 tell you. I don't know how it
will work at the primaries, but it's
lofty.
"Right after election tho newspapers
took a wicked delight in pointing ont
that since wo hnd become voting citizens we wero amenable to all tbu duties
of citizens nnd voters and would hnvo
to do jury duty nnd militia duty and I
don't know how many other kinds of
duty. Then arose Attorney General
Engley—a very Solomon—nnd dug into
his books and found that, while tho
state constitution madenodistinctionof
sex, various laws regurding jurors und
the militia contain tho word male, whioh
lets us out of the work and leaves us all
the fun. Anyway, I'm sure we'll get
along very nicely, even nt tho primaries, though I'm certain tho men won't
think conventions nro conventions at
all if they can't smoko uud fight and
raise Old Ned. They have always had a
good deal more row in Denver nt tho
convention than on election day, and a
squad of deputy sheriffs usually sit on
the bench of the elect.
"How did wo carry tlio election?
Well, I am blessed if 1 know that
either—whether wo carried it nt nil or
not. I'm honestly inclined to believe
that the men gave us sutTrago because
they thought there was no good argument against it nnd that wo ought to
have it. Tho men of this part of tho
world are big, broad minded fellows,
and hold, too, much of thnt old timo
western chivalry which mado tho louo
woman tho safest of nil the creatures in
• rough frontier town—tho spirit which
to this day makes tho toughest old''
miner ready to fight at a moment's notice for a woman in distress. Tho great
bulk of the voto against suffrage wns
cast by men who wero not opposed to
having women vote, but who do not
feel that women should minglo in politics as politics has been. Wo say, and it
is on our knowledge of tbo man thnt wo
base our saying, thnt politics iu Colorado will hereafter be other than it lias
been, and wo will bo safe in politics ns
it will bo. No Culm-ado assemblage
will toleruto ruffians who will insult
women directly or indirectly. You
will find tho future showing that I
know whereof 1 speak. Tho suffrage
machinery during tho campaign was
not very powerful, nnd if tbo agitation
really accomplished anything tho valuable englno of its work was tho press.
Thero was only one newspaper mun in
the stnto who openly opposed BiilTmgo.
Somo wero a littlo lukewarm and many
■aid nothing, but tho large dailies,
without exception, favored suffrago editorially."	
A Dainty Itoom.
Dainty bedroom pnpers are much in
demand, and wonderfully beautiful
somo of thorn are. The ono fault ia
rooms of any size is lack of chnract r
and a somewhat faded ensemble, but
even that has been obviated by a clever

A   WOMAN'S   NERVES
STORY  OF   A WOMAN TO WHOM
NOISE WAS TORTURE.
Nh« Bays Tlmt sn« wi» Prostrated by
liu- Leant Kxoltniiiriit -Pliyalolana
IIhIHhiI by Her Vase*
from the (iiiie City, Keokuk, la.)
Mrs. Helen Mycrtt whoso homo is at
lift 15 Vernon avenue, Chicago, and
whoso visit to Keokuk, la., will long
bt! romomhorod, was at one time afflicted with a nervous malady which
at times drove her nearly tu distraction.
"Thoso terrible headaches aro a thing
of tlie past," she said the other day to
a Gate City representative, "and thero
is quite a story' in connection with it,
too."
My nervous system sustained a great
shock some fifteen years ago, brought
on I believe through too much worrying over family matters and then allowing my love for my books to get the
better of my discretion where my health
was uoucerued. Why, whenever my
affairs at home did not go along just
as I expected, I would invariably be-
oome prostrated from the excitement
and I would consider myself fortunate
indeed if tho effects of the attack would
not remain for a week. I was obliged
to give up our pleasant home not far
from tho Lnke shore drive, because I
uould not stand the noise of the locality. I could find no place in the city
which I deemed suitable to one whose
nervous system was always on the point
of explosion. To add to my misfortunes my complexion uderwent a change
and I looked so yellow and sallow that
I was ashamed to venture from the
house at all.
"Madam," said my doctor to me soon
after an unusually severe attack of the
malady, "unless you leave tho city and
seek some place of quiet, you will
nover recover." " So I concluded I would
visit my uncle, who lives iu Dallas
County, la., nnd whoso farm would
surely be a good place for oue in my
pitiable condition. I picked up the
Gate City one day, ami happened to
come across au interesting recital of
the recovery of some woman in Now
York Statu who was afflicted as I hnd
been. This woman had been cured by
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Palo People. I thought that if Pink Pills cured
that woman they might do the samo
for me. I began to take tho pills according to directions and I began to
feel better from the start. After I had
taken several boxes of them I was ready
to go back to Chicago. My nervousness
was gone and my complexion was fresh
as that of any 10-Year-old girl in Iowa
and Pink Pills is what put tho color
in my cheeks. No wonder I am in
such high spirits and feel like a prize
fighter. And no wonder I like to come
to Keokuk, for if it had not been for
Pink Pills bought from ft Keokuk firm
I would not have been alive now,
laughingly concluded the lady.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain all
the elements necessary to give new life
and richness to tlio blood aud restore
shattered nerves. They are for sale by
nil druggists, or may be had by mail
from Dr. Williams' Mediciuo Company,
Schenectady, N. Y., for 50 ceuts per
box, or six lioxes for $2.00.
Her Untiling Tog*.
Tho littlo boy was very much interested iu n picture that his sister had
bad taken while at tho seashore. It
was a picture that had been taken "just
for the fun of tbo thing" and not for
distribution among ber friends—ono of
thoso pictures that a girl keeps in her
own room whero none but her intimates
may seo it. This one showed tho young
lady and her "dearest friend" on the
bench in bathing suits. Both of the
girls wero pretty and had good figures
that tho bathing suits showed to excellent advantage, but tho picture seemed
to bo a source of endless speculation to
tho boy.
"Did you nnd Mamiowear them toga
at tho seashore?" he asked one day.
"Of course wo did," sho replied.
" Did you wear them short skirts and
stockin's so's you could go In bathing?"
ho persisted.
"Certainly; what makes you ask such
a question?"
"Oh, I dunno," he replied carelessly.
"1 thought mebboyou went in bathin
eo's you could wear them toga,"—Chicago Post.
A WONDERFUL CORPSE,
llie Remain!! of Bt. Catherine of Bologna
Still Endure Intact.
Chambers' celebrated work ou miracles,
wonders, general oddities respecting man,
curiosities of vegetable uud utilmal life,
etc., which is arranged as a sort of calendar nnd given tho very Inappropriate title
of "The Hook of Duys," has, through
some odd mischance, entirely neglected to
mention tho miracle of tho preservation of
tho relics of St. Catherine. Tho wonderful story bos been a theme of discussion
among church folks tho world over for 1200
or 800 years, yet tho abovo mentioned
work, which purports to give an account
of everything out of tbe ordinary, whether
vouched for or only reported, has entirely
Iguored the marvelous narrative, not even
remotely alluding to it.
ThoSt. Catherine in question was known
In life as well as after hor death ns "St,
Catherine of Bologna." Her remains are
now enshrined in a church bearing her
name In the eity mentioned nbovo, the
relics having remained in their present
position for upward of 800 years. She sits
bolt upright In a chair, ber features and
form somewhat shrunken, the skin of the
fnco nnd hands badly discolored—iu fact,
almost black—yet her mortal remains are
not In the least decayed, it appearing, even
to the unbeliever, that tlie fates have decided to keep her holy body uncorrupted
nnd her form Intact until tho great dny of
reckoning. Tho editor of this article it

great denomination. Vet facts aro facts,
and ns such nro deserving of record, especially In n department of this character,
which is entirely given up to discussing
tho unusual nud unnatural sides of everything. Tho accommodating priest tn attendance nt tho shrine of St. Catherine

mummified saint to the elbow, nnd moving It back and forth provo to your wonder nnd astonishment that tbo joints nre
as flexible as they wero when the good
woman trod the streets of the ancient It alia n cities 800 years ngo. When Plux IX
wns popo, he frequently visited the shrine
of St. Catherine, aud while making such
visits never failed to say mass while in the
presence of tbe miraculously preserved remains. On one occasion, while testing the
flexibility of her joints, he raised her hand

They Rude For One Fare.
Coming down town on a Fourth avenue
car, a woman got on with four small children. The delay was noticeable because
the conductor had to help on the oldest
girl, then the boy with a square cap and
long curls, then another little girl and
lastly the woman, who carried a child apparently about 10 months old.
The young ones were all graded In size
aud were small for their apparent ages.
The mother bestowed tbem about, some of
the men iu the car getting up to make
room. Tbe car jingled on down town, and
the people were beginning to forget about
it, when they heard the conductor say In a
voice of shrill astonishment as he looked
at the solitary and lone nickel in his hand:
"Is none of them over 8, mumf"
There waa a modest murmur of disclaim
from the woman.
"Not one of them?"
She shook her head. Tbe passengers took
ah interest, She looked at them with an
earnest, honest gaze, that of a "praying
mother."
" Four children and not one of them over
3," said tbe conductor sadly. But he rung
up tbe fare and went out on the back platform. He counted on his fingers and multiplied and muttered, and when the woman got off he was still mumbling nnd multiplying to himself.— New York World.

A Bit of Cballt.
Did you ever microscopically examine
a tiny bit of powder scraped from a piece
of common chalk? "If you never did," aa
the philosopher told the boatman In the oft
repeated story, " you have lost at least oue-
th d of your life." Not one person in
10,000 hns the least Idea of the number
and curious forma ot the minute shells
that can thus be brought into plain view.
The largest of these shells is not more than
the one three-thousandths of an inch in
length, yet they nre as perfect ns tbe pearly
titans of the beach that nre large enough
to hold a half gallon of water and which,
when empty, roar like a cyclone. Some
are shaped like squids and cuttlefishes,
others like "sand dollars" or sea urchins,
but by far the larger majority will remind
you of sea shells that you have seen at one
time or another. One very common form
of these Infinitesimal structures is shaped
exactly like the common conch shell, but
it has been estimated that at the least calculation it is 2,000,000 times smaller.
A careful examination of different samples of any one specimen of chalk will generally show that there are from 800 to 500
species of minute shells In every conceivable shape and form, the very minutest
Bpecks among them being as curiously and
wonderously made as those of larger caliber.—St. Louis Republtc

snatched from the grave by a few doses of

The fear of pain
and the dangers
of parturition 611
many a woman's
breast with dismay. There is
no reason why
childbirth should
be fraught with
danger and distress.
It is a natural function, and should be
performed in a natural way without undue suffering. Nature never intended
that women should be tortured in this
way.
Taken during gestation Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription robs childbirth of
its dangers to both mother and child, by
preparing the system for delivery, thereby
shortening labor, lessening pain and abbreviating the period of confinement.

Ii. ('. FRUIT (lUOWUKS.
Elsewhere in this issue will be
found an interesting hitter frtnn
tbe pen pf Mr. 10. Huteherson. of
l.tidncrs, on thp subject of apple
growing, und treating also of mat:
ters nlreitdy Introduced, in tl|is
journal. Mr. flutcherson's long
experience in fruit culture, his
acute observation and sound common sense way of viewing things!
(ind the unequalled facility which
his ppsitjon of manager of the
Jubilpp Fruit farm and Mainland
Nursery Company gives him fop
practical experiment and investigation of the peculiar characteristics of the fruit industry in this
1'rovince, lend special weight to
his opinions, and \\U contributions
to Surrey Timks nre always gladly
received.
There does not appear to be any
need of carrying further at this
time the ppntroversy regarding the
Maiden's H|ush and lien Davis up-.
Dies, as the matter has been fully
submited to tbe executive of thp
Fruit Growers' Association, and np
doubt in due time action of somp
kind will be taken. We might
mention, though, that our estimate
pf tlie quality of the Maiden's
Blush is not based upon the. grading of the Ontario Association, but
upon the merit of the fruit as grown
here in Britisb Columbia. The
same U true of the Duchess, and if
Mr. Huteherson, or any of the Directors of Iho 11. C. Association,
(ind il convenient to visit the Surrey Exhibition next fall, wp hope
lo be able to demonstrate to them,
by sampling fruit from the writer's
own orchard, that in thp soil and
climate of Cloverdale the Maiden's
Blush ii an insipid nnd trashy
fruit, and the Duchess good enough
lo rank second quality. As regards
Ihe Ben Davis, nothing has been
adduced to show that that apple is
a desirable one to grow in this Pro-
vines or anywhere in Canada, Mr.
Kipp to the contrary notwithstanding. A very serious responsibility
attaches to tin; Fruit Growers' Association in recommending the trees
to plant in this country, Ten
years is a large portion of a man's
life, and on an a vcrage every mistake
in planting poor varieties will cover
about that period, besides the general ill-effect referred to in former
issuee.
In its report of the quarterly
meeting of Directors recently held
dt Mission City, the Vancouver
New»-A(lvertiser alludes to the
"attvk" of Si'iiiiKv Timks upon
the Fruit Growers' Association.
We wish here to deny the soft im-
peachment of " attacking " the So-1
cicty. That was far from our pur-1
pose in offering what we considered
reasonable criticism of its list of
recommended apple trees. The I
epirlt may move us in criticise
again in a mure general way, for
there is plenty of room, But all
the while we recognize tlie Fruit
(Jrowers'Association aa an lmpor-|
tant Institution of the Province,
and one that is accomplishing, and
will no doubt continue to accomplish, a large amount of good fur
Hie public. It is a fact, though,
that Ihe information given is not
always as carefully considered as it'
should be, and that the action taken is often faulty, and sometimes
oven absurd, of which bitter the
naming of the "British Columbia"
apple is it sample. The truth is,
Ihe l^ruit (jrowers' Association and
its papers, reports and recommendations have received from the newspapers nf the Province nothing but
"taffy," and too much of it isn't,
healthy. A little honest criticism,
even though it be faulty criticism,
will be good for the Association
and good for tbe public interest.
HUNTING DKF.R WITH DOGS
Tbe Provincial Act that makes
it. an offence against the law to
hunt deer with dogs is both nji un
just and tin unwise onp, Under it
innocent parlies are occasionally
punished for offences they did not
contemplate, while the direct lend-
pnpy of it is to give the few Iho ad-
vantage over Hie many, which is
cniiti'in'v to thp avowed objeqt of
legislation in this country. A
sample of tlie former, is whon a
man or party of men set out to
hunt pears or other noxious ani-
111:1 Is, and till' tlogs chance nn thu
trail of n deer, and follow it up
under their natural instincts. The
fact Hint tho loan or parly of men
have no wish to shoot the deer,
ijiul use their best endeavors to
head off the tings, anil take then)
off the trail, does not relieve them
from the penalty imposed by thq
Act. Tliis is unjust. The liability
tp accident of this kind tends to
check the hunting of bears, etc..
and as thp destruction of onp of
these is of more general benefit
than the preserving of a ijpaen
deers under existing conditions,
thp Act is unwise. A while ago a
well-known hunter of Lj|i|gley
Prairie, who has been of morp
service to settlement by tbe destruction of bears, cougars and
wild-cats than all the decr-slajkers
in Westminster district, wits hunting bears near here, by invitation
of parties troubled with thpm.
The dogs accidently took after a
dper, and while running it, the
finest dog was shot by some zeal-
oub deer-stalker. The shooting of
the hound, was just as unlawful as
the running of the deer, ant| immeasurably meaner. The bpar
hupt came tn an end, of coprse,
with the death of thp dog. Now
thp purpose of the Act, weprpsume,
is to preserve the deer for a food
supply. In this it fails uttprly,
for although dper abound in the
woods of Surrey, for instance, and
the settlers havp all an appreciative
appetite, for venison, i(. is safe to
say that not one settler in a hundred tastes venison from year's
end to year's end. The preserved
venison, straying through the woods
is nn more available to the ordinary settler than baked birds of
paradise. Very good food, no
doubt, but lamentably out of
roach. The few men who have the
hunter's gift of deer-stalking may
lie able to slaughter one or a score
for market each season, but where
is the genpral benefit in that ?
Why should the many be barred
for the benefit of the few, and thoBe
few by habit usually of little account as settlers. With thp privilege of using dogs, all may share
in the venison, for dogs do not
drive deer for their owners only,
and besides, the frequent hunts
would speedily clear the forest of
tlie settled districts pf harmful and
dangerous wild animals, No
doubt, the deer would soon go too ;
but that is inevitable in any event,
for deer parks and cleared farms
(b> not develope side by side.
Meantime the food supply, that is
probably much more needed now
than it will he years hence, would
lie utilized to 11 considerably greater extent than it is now, and there
is no farmer who would grieve
when deer, hear and cut vacated
tlie premises together, There
should lie a close season for deer,
rigorously maintained, Any further protection, us agninst the
settlers, is unjust and unwise, as
already stated.
St. Johns, Nfld., May 10.—The
Governor received despatches today from Fngbtnd intimating that
the Imperial Ministry was willing
to give favorable consideration to
certain suggested concessions on
Ihe part of Great Britain towards
consummating the union of Newfoundland and Canada, provided
that the Newfoundland Government guarantee to perform their
part nf the contract, namely, to pass
a measure through the Legislature
settling the French shore question
satisfactorily to Great Britain and
France. A few years ago, when
tlie Newfoundland delegates in
London agreed upon a convention
settling this question, the Newfoundland Leglislature upon the
return of the delegates, repudiated
their actions and rejected the convention. Now Great Britain wants
a binding promise before acting.
The Whiteway party will meet tomorrow to discuss the matter and
will probably  agree  us  required.
Apples, and their Modification.
To tlio iitlitorof BilltllBV Tunis.
I note your editorial ebmmont in
issue of May 3rd. headed "Apples,"
and questioning the advisability of
retaining on the list certain varieties of apples as given by tlie II. C.
Fruit Growers' Association in their
annual report. Tliis mutter was
brought before tlie Directors at the
quarterly meeting held at Mission
Ci'ly, May 7th, 1806,and was fairly
well discussed, mure in 11 humorous
strain than otherwise, on account
pf your comparing the lien Davis
to a turnip. One gentleman said
he grew the Davis because Ihey
were in good condition long after
his turnips were rotten and nut of
the market. Another said that they
were about tlie only tipple that
Would ship safely through to Cariboo. A third suggested Unit probably the turnips would freeze on
the road but there would 'be no
danger of the Ben Davis doing so,
A fourth gave his experience in
shipping Ben Davis to England,
which brought out 11 point in favor
of tlio Davis well known tn thosp
who have handled (hem, namely,
that while other varieties will deteriorate on a long voyage t be Ben
Davis wjll improve, and will oppn
up after many hardships in better
conditio]) than when packed.
In regard to the Maiden's Blush,
it was decided that wp could by no
means dispense with that variety
ut present, and I must call your
attention to tho fact that the Ontario Fruit Growers' Association,
rate the Maiden's Blush as a deseert
apple at pne point l|igber than the
Duchess, and it is well deserving of
it in this Province'; second, that
the Duchess is very much subject
to black-spot or blight on the stem
of the tree, moro so than any other
variety, while the Maiden's Blush
is free as far as our reports show
at present.
The question, of niodifjcation of
frujts by climate should no| be
overlooked at this point. Much
has been written with regard to
the effect of climate on plant and
amnio.) life, and cprtainly we find
great variation in plants i)s they
are moved from tbe original cpntre
of development. To the horticultural student| some of the interesting features connected with thp late
Columbian Exposition were the variations shown by the same variety
of fryiit grown under different sojl
and climatic conditions. In this
matter I quote Mr. John Craig, of
Ottawa, as follows :
In fact, so wide is the variation
in apples of (hp same variety, that
frequently thp Ben Davis of Npw
Mexico and Arkansas, for instance,
is quite unrecognizable (o the fruit
grower Who has been acquainted
with this variety as grown in Michigan or Ontario. Taking Ontario
as a centre and traveling westward
the round applp seems to become
elongated and to have reached a
distinctly oblong form when we
arrive at the Pacific coast in British Columbia, Oregon or Washington. With this lengthening tendency is developed prominent ribs
on nearly all varieties, with wrinkling about the calyx. The same
changes are noticed when the variety is carried eastward into the
Maratime Provinces, but to a less
marked degree,
We learn from a brief glance at
the modification of fruit as wrought
by climate that each apple has its
particular locality where it reaches
the highest state of development.
Thus we find the Ben Davis of Missouri and Iowa surpass in beauty
and quality those grown elsewhere,
although they will not keep as long
as if grown in Canada. Again, the
Northern Spy and King of Ontario,
and of particular sections of tbe
Province, are superior to any others, while Nova Scotia has long
been famed for the fine quality and
appearance of her Gravenstoins,
which after all are produced with
the best results on a comparatively
limited area.
Then, Mr. Editor, who can name
(he apple for British Columbia ?
In regurd to color, again quoting
from Mr. Craig, traveling east and
west from Ontario coloring and
marking becomes less varied, except in the case of the Blue Pear-
main, which in British Columbia
and Oregon is as highly colored as
the same variety grown in Quebec
or Ontario.
Again, we find particular acquirements and special provisions made
for certain plants and trees whereby they are enabled to endure tbe
rigor and vicissitudes of the climates in which they have been developed. Thus it is that we find
with plants native of a dry climate
that their leaf surface; or breathing
tubes, have been reduced to the
smallest possible area and number,
thus giving the least possible opportunity for evaporating moisture.
Examples of this class are found in
the hot and dry climate of New
Mexico and Arizona, where the
fleshy and prickly leaved cacti
abound.
Now, Mr. Editor, I believe that
you will agree with me that the B.
C. Fruit Growers' Association is
lining a good work in disseminating
information on fruit thibjeots thru'
out the Province,
In my estimation, the Experimental Fartn at Aggasiz, all things
considered, is tho moans whereby
they will in the near future demonstrate to the fruit growers of tliis
Province what varieties to grow.
I have beard it asserted that tho
farm at Agassiz does not cover tlie
whole ground, in other words, that
experiments ijt Aggasiz would lie of
little vabue cast of the Cascades in
most cases. Quite true, hut it must
he remembered that Mr Sharpe is
continually in correspondence with
persons in all parts of thp'Province
and from year lo year distributes
many thousands of tj'.ees and
plants to all soctions. In'the mutter of experimental work, the Mainland Nursery Co. have this year
taken a hand, having sent out 655
tipple trees to 21 persons In the following places 1 Kelownii, Vernon,
Clinton, Lillobet,  Nelson,  Revel-
stoke, Chilcotin, Asbcnift, Cache
Creek, Pentictqn, and Big Bear.
Among the varieties were eleven
Russian apples numbered one to
oleven, Eibston Pippin, Ontario,
Yellow Transparent. Saunder's
Seedling, McMitbon's White, Rolfe,
Maiden's Blush, Wolf Hirer, York
Imperial, Longfleld, Grind's Golden, Pewauk'ee, Cox Orangf Pippin,
Winter St,fiawrence, Canada Baldwin, Itetl Bietigbciincr, Scarlet
Cranberry! Baxter, Mann, llulbort.
Sweet Bough, Keswick Cqdlin, anil
Ben Davis. In all 84 varieties
were forwarded, and we Intend to
continue this, distribution from year
to year, as Mr. Sharpe, nf tbe Experimental Farm, has placed at
our disposal any and all scions we
may require for that purpose.
Next year we proposo sqmling out
a list of pears. 1 am pleased to
say that we have had no trouble in
finding persons willing |o take the
trees and report in tljp different
directions mentioned.
J\gain, we have the information
gajned from circulars spnt out by
the Department of Agripulture, return of which is given in the Third
Report, on page 1810, which I believe to be wpll worth publishing in
connection with this matter. In
Hip returns for the Lower Fraser,
Russets stand at the head of the
list, being mentioned 81 times,
Baldwin 80, Gravenstein 62, Northern Spy 48, Duchess 43, Wealthy
35, King 35, Ben Davis 34, Red As-
trachan 33, Yellow Transparent 32,
Rhode Island Greening 17, Maiden's Blush 11. While if you look
for quality you will find Ribston
Pippin mentioned six times and
Grimes' Golden once.
Iq ponclusjpn, Mr. Edjtor, I cannot agree with you that B. C. fruit
is in low favor in the home market,
but will agree that the system of
packing by the average farmer is
very much so( and if the same farmer would pick his summer and
autumn apples when ripe we would
not hear so much about this want
of quality, for in our even climate
many varieties will hang on the
trees for a mqpth after they are
past their best.

Ladners, May 13, 1895,
The Manitoba School Question.
Winnipeg, May 10.—It iB stated
that Premier Greenway and Attorney-General Sifton will leave
for Ottawa next week. The rumor
is that the letter from Lord Aberdeen summoned these gentlemen
to Ottawa to see if something
could not be done to escape the
difficulty created by the sweeping
terms of the Remedial Order among
the national school supporters.
The reported visit of the Ministers
to the east is not regarded with the
slightest apprehension, as members
of the Government have publicly
and privately declared their attitude on the school question. A
compliance with His Excellency's
reported request for an audience
with the Ministers is simply a
polite and constitutional course,
but it is not for a moment suspected that any gubernatorial influence
will have the slightest effect on the
fixed policy to maintain intact tbe
present system of schools.
Winnipeg, May 11.—Hon. Mr.
Greenway was waited on to-day
and it was learned that the Premier,
accompanied by Attorney-General
Sifton, will leave for the East next
week, and that their destination
was Ottawa, but as to their mission
Hon. Mr. Greenway said he did
not care to say anything at present.
In reply to a question as to the
communication from the Governor-
General, the Premier would not
say that such had been received, or
that the members of the Government had been invited to Ottawa.
They expected to be absent about
two weeks. The general impression is that there will soon be a
cessation of hostilities in the school
controversy, and that a compromise
will be reached acceptable to all
parties.   _^^^^_^^^^__^_
