FRIDAY,    MARCH I,     1912   "T  We believe it 'is a   step  in    the  r^lit direction to prevent, the Hindus  now  present   in   the   country  ' from bringing in their families. The  stand that Canada is 1;o' belong to  -the   white  race  should   be   firmly  , kept and  nothing  'done, that   will  give the Oriental anyt more rights  than he'now possesses.   Should the  Hindus  be   permitted   to   bring   in  their  families,   it   is ��������� 'B_rd   to   tell  where this would end as we do not  know how large these families are  ���������and how -wouM the -authorities to  be guided, in this matter?  If the Hindus were permitted to  bring in their fam-dies it would  only be the establishment of' . a  colony within the bounds of' our  dominion that would be entirely  separate from" the' (Canadian race  as no one ever dreamed of 'the  blending of the Occidental or Orien  tal races, whose' ethics, morals,  religion, social and domestic life,  nationa lideas arid political training  have all been fashioned -in- an entirely ' different mould from ' that  "which fashioned the .race to; which  we'belong and of which' we are ;so  proud.  . It is'the duty of the West lo educate' the East'along the lines which  does not permit the'Asiatics from  coming to the country.   It maybe.  hard  to show that to   open      the  gates and welcome the "yeilou and  brown peril" is not. iin the oeai interests of the Pacific coast, but it  ���������.,...>> . ���������     ���������  must be done and i(? is up to  13. C.  representatives  at  Ottawa  to   see  that it is done.  The elections have been.brought  on very quickly, but theni it seems  a good idea to be through and  over with them, as a long series  of hustings' stunts are very detrimental to business. Msually there  is very little new business under'-'  taken when an election is in progress and by the 28thi of March is  a good time to "be through with  campaigning, then :the business of  the province will forge ahead for  the summer.  A new platform fo rthe Liberal  party was born in Vancouver last  few days. Something had to be  done by the party to keep together  the following; and there-id always  something attractive about thai  which is new. Coming as it does  now, just previous to an election,  it will probably raise the, hopes of  those who had become downcast.  Possibly some of them will feel just'  ' as good as though they were likely  to, win. .'���������'���������'''  There can be little doubt as to  the 'result of thei impending election.

' ' > '  Care for the Fruit Bushes    *  It is never safe to trust the fruit-  tog bushes to care for bhemcslvris over  ���������winter.    Protection   should   be  given  to all of them, unless We except currants, which are very .hardy and, stand  a great, deal 'of freezing and 'thawing.  A   mulch   is   often   advised   for   oven  these   hardy- bushes,   which   consists  of the application of a co'at of manure  or  straw,  about  tlie 'plants,   to  hold  snow   and   prevent  the  ground   from  alternate thawing and freezing in' the  spring.    The 'objection to a'mulch of*  this sort is that the manure or.straw  often     contains    considerable   "weed  fieeds,   which   are   thus   scattered   in  ���������the rows to  grow and .cause  trouble'  ^  -the following season. - Some "nurserymen  advocate   the   use  of   brush   to  gather and hold snow.   Brush for this  purpose is 'better if cut in. the summer  when the leaves are on. ' These will  die but-'still hahg on to-tlie branches.  This -placed, at intervals hr<the ,-rows  of fruit .bushes  will  gather  snow   to  proteot..them from the .frost.  -:' For   raspberries .'and   strawberries^  . it is better to provide more- congenial  shelter.

Similar'  treatment   is   prescribed for the protection of .the.rasp-:,  ���������ber.ries; or the mounding up of'earth'  about the root's is also good. Probably,  the  best method   of protecting raspberries is that of covering the caries  completely over with-earth or mulch.-  This   is   accomplished   by   taking   a.  shovel   or   fork   full   of   earth   away  from the north'side of the hill, pending the canes over to  the north and-,  placing   oarth> oh  the   canes   to  keep"  them down and 'then, putting ,a good'  The.Putiire.

As I before observed, on Saturday, the busiest day of the week,  the Post Office Is surrounded and  blockaded by this out-of-town brigade.. , Many a time, have. I stood  over in the shadow of the old Province Building, overcome with laughter. Such a mess as there Is���������scattered "fruit and vegetables, and-paper  and bags, and general'lltter."  "You must be a good-natured set,"  remarked Dixie.  "My father says  we are tho most  long-suffering- people   In   the   world.  We're a little Blow and conservative  but������we  have  a  lot  of decency  and  sentiment with it.    Suppose any person has  a disgraceful  occurrence  in,  his family.    In. most cities, " would  be blazed abroad In the papers;    In  Halifax,  theso  things are suppressed,  again' and again.   We want news, but.  we  don't  want  to  make  our  people  smart for it."  "You'll   let   the   strangers   smart,",  said Biddy.. ���������  '���������  "Ah' Biddy; it's a rogue you  are,".  Bald  Judy,  with  a very  good  imitation of an Irish accent.   "You understand and 'appreciate what I say in  the good heart of you."  "I'm blushing," said the Irish girl,  penitently:  "A few years ago," continued Judy,  "there  was a good kind reporter in  Halifax  who was often short in his  police-court news.     The 'drunks* all  knew him, and-if they said.cajolingly,/  'Ah Mr. Blank, let us off this time,!  don't  put  our  names   in  the  paper,,  we'll not do it again,' he never could'  resist ^  "Much 'wet damnation' in Halifax?"  Inquired    , Peanuts       patronizingly,;  "otherwise      drinking      of      strong  liquors?"  "Not more than In  the PJne Tree  State,", replied Judy quickly. "There's:  some, of course���������" ;  . She was about to continue, whenJ  Firefly broke into one of her vehe-'  ment statements.' "Qur prison lawsj  are not right yet. Have we a right i  to flaunt ,.the shame of a prisoner in  a police court the way we do? Sometimes I think if I were a criminal,  I'd want to kill the judge, and Jury  und. all the spectators, out of re-:  venge. We, that Is the . law-abiding;  public, take the attitude of the Almighty. We haven't any right to  it"    " .���������' ���������  "Would y,ou pamper law-breakers?" asked Dixie. ��������� **"  "Pamper, yes. I'd d*> anything to  stop crime and the frightful' waste  of human life and energy that' goes  on In our prisons. We make our  criminals ugly- by our discipline. We  ought to create a new; spirit In them."  "Prison . congresses and reformers  are doing a good d.eal," said Jane  quietly. ���������  "Yes, yes," rejoinwd Firefly, "but  they're so slow. "IVI like to be an  omnipotent Witch, and say, 'Prisons  be made over. You're not wild beast  cages. YWre hospitals for sick  souls.'"' r.  "Do you know how Mrs. Johnson1  used to do at Sherbsorne?" asked  Jane eagerly. "She gave the women  prisoners canaries to take ceare of,  and she let them nam������ the lambs in  the spring. She believed in .indulging the motherly instinct in them. If  I had to go to prison, I would be  much happier if I hadj a i'ittlo dog  or cat with me."  Jane's saintly air, her beautiful, Innocent face, and her reputation- for  unworldliness, were so' incongruous  as associated .with the Idea'of Imprisonment, that, her fellow club  members burst into one of their frequent gales of mf.rth.. S  "Imagine poor J?_ie behind prison  bars!" exclaimed Jflrefly, wlrfing ber  eyes.    "Oh.  my!"   and  she   -pent .off  Into another flit of laughter.  Jane sewed on calmly, and Judy  ' exclaimed,, "I went out to��������� Sherborne  some years before.Mrs. JohnBon died.  I had lunch with her. , Oh! What a .  darling dog she had, so calm and  .quiet not flying to pieces with nerves  like you, Hurry Wurry."  At the mention of his name, the  excitable , cur Bprang up, barked,  turned round three times, and. flopped  down again on the mat  "Mrs. Johnson took me all through  the prison," .said Judy. "The women  in' their neat print dresses looked so  respectable, and their expressions,  were bo good, that I said, 'Why, these  prisoners do���������'t look any worse than  the average .woman one meets on the  ��������� streets of Boston!'"  "What's that?" asked Peanuts  sharply, and Biddy exclaimed, "And  sure you're paying a fine compliment  to us Boston women!"  "You   know   what   I   mean,"   aald  ' Judy.     "Why,   some   of   the   women -  were  handsome.      They  didn't  look  criminal.    I  believe  the  criminal  is  Just "us" barring his or her fault"  "Which makes "him" or "her" a  criminal?" said Dixie quickly.  "Tra, la, la!" Interposed Firefly  gaily. "Tell us about your Jails In  Nova Scotia. You must have some  fine ones in' so fine a country."  "Many Jails In Nova Scotia are  shut up," said Judy, "because there Is  no ono to put In them. Once, In a.  French village, I saw a wonu ��������� sitting knitting by the window of the  comfortable little Jail, and talking to  a friend who stood In the street out- -  side."  "What was she locked up for?"  asi&ed Firefly.  "Selling liquor illegally. "Poor,  misguided creature, she wanted a little extra money."  "Ah, yes���������poor, dear thing," said  Peanuts tartly. "What about the persons she sold the liquor to? Perhaps some poor<. mother had her son  come home drunk."  "What about those drug stores In   ,  Maine    with    the    back    entrance 1"  asked Judy tantalizlngly.  "Your Post ..Office  is .close  to  the  water,' > according    to    this    map."  observed "   Jane,     the'  , peacemaker. ��������� ��������� -  "Take us on board oni of your big  steariiers."  '.'There, at that dock," said Judy,  pointing to the map, "was a new one,  _ beauty, so I went on board. The  tonnage waa 14,000 and it had an  elevator, and a jolly big fire In the  music-room. The furnishings were  all Frenchy and in subdued colors.  When I was a little girl, steamer furniture was all vivid reds and blues  and greens. The suites of rooms on  the new boat were delightfully comfortable���������one has to pay hundreds of  dollars for the best ones."  "So you Nova Scotlans are luxurious in your .tastes?" said Biddy.'  "Halifax is wealthy," said Judy  calmly, "and. some of our people; are  always going abroad. If one wants a  cheap passage, it is available.' The  second-class cabins on this Bteamer  were, furnished just like .the \ first-  class ones, except that the location  ���������was not so good. The steerage quarters were the best I have ever seen  on any steamer, and mind girls, I am  familiar witi New York boats. As I  looked at the clean, comfortable  quarters, and thought of the emigrant, we bave landing in Halifax,"  some of them in sheepskins, I knew ������  that In these steerage rooms they  would be better off than they had  ever toeen In their own homes.

It is an affirmation tljat  raises an equiry* as to whether or  not the  people  of  Ireland, eat  eels.  One of the singular things about,  the construction of.the new C. P. R.  line to Al'bernl on ^Vancouver Island  was that * when the builders were1  making a small cutting through a.hill  in Alberni, near the wharf, they  struck a fine soam of coal some of  which will probaSly supply the. Company's steamship's, with !!ueK-fqr..>dpfle'  Scots ��������� even London Scots���������\never  touch them, and ai Scotch angler,  catchinglan eel, promptly throws It  away. Eels used to be associated  with snakeff, "and just as men; of  every race entertain an instinctive  horror -for snakes," writes Sir' Herbert Maxwell, "so there remain traces  of the same feeling about eels."  It ssems somewhat unkind of Sir  Her^nrt tn state that most civilized  races have- overcome this long ago,  and then to add that there exists  among the Scots a strong'and, universal prejudice against eels.  The night had fallen when Bragg  came back. He brought a sack that  he handled with Care. He stood in  the light cast by the little camp fire  over which the men had frizzled  bacon for their supper. ":  "I ain't presumin' to give off  orders," he said. "I'm only helpin'  accordln' to my lights and followin'  a few Scripture textB; about swappln'  eyes and teeth, even. S tephen; when  the occasion riBes.' This, here, "1b the  baby!" He patted;the sack.  "Dynamite!" said. "One of them  sticks in the gizzard of that steam log  hauler, other stickB scattered under  their bridges and along that road  they've built, and mebbe a stick under  their wanfflgt camp fffogre tholr wo4 i  ;f  being  the . victim  of further, mar-  ouding. ���������  In   his   study   of   the  con-  ' litions in the north-country, he had  earned   that   this   scheme  had   been  jmployed in other cases.  Decency held him back ��������� the code  as it was observed in that section  prompted him to go ahead and play  rhe game as the others played it.  He "was suddenly aware that men  had surrounded them. An oath from  one of his- dozmg crew informed him.'  In his ' preoccupation, he had not  thought of posting pickets. He -was.  new to the dangers of the woods.  When he leaped l> his feei BSnn  Wlggln ' faced him ��������� a rifle acrwss  his arm.  ''I'm going to give you a' chance,  dude;" he said, with insult in his tone.  "We've got you deal to rights. Your  chance is this ��������� you ctriat and hike  that way.". He pointed in' a-direction  away from Corran-acche..' "And you'  keep going. ��������� Don't you^ ever come  back. ' That's your chajice, and If  you don't take it, you'll 'swamp calipers for a golden harp-' ��������� and you  can take that straight '/from me."  It was insult that sought to provoke. Harry understood. He restrained himself.  "I've got nothing against ttre rest-  of you',** "WTggin Went'on. TIT srmpry  adv4se   you   to   be   getting   _auk   to,  where you came from.

The men who stood In the* sb/a._ows ���������  were armed.    MoBt of them apQwared  to > be  woodsmen  from   th_  noair-by  operation.   They were.''not particular-,  ly   savage   looking.     Some   of   Jllem  were  grinning,  as .though  their   ex--  pedition   were . a   lark.    But Wiggia;  prompted by his grudge, did! .not', try  to hide his anmosity.     : i  "Wiggin, I have, more right in tbese;  woodB than you have," proceeded I the;  Corran manager.

At that  moment, Bragg wore an -expression  that backed up what he threatened.  Even In the stress of the conflict,  Harry wondered whimsically whether  lie was to find nothing except fisticuffs in that dreadful north country!  He had been forced from one battle  to another with grim iteration." His  opponent came on to his feet.

As iSumas council would meet on  the first Saturday in March, it was  decided to wait before taking; any  action,'to learn if S_maa Council  would undertake half of the cost  of. this expenditure.  The Council then' adjourned to  iast Satuiday in Marcft, at JL1 o'clock in the forenoon  JUNIOR FOOTBALL  One o fthe prettiest exhibitions of  football'ever Been in Mission was  given last Saturday when the Mission Juniors met those of the Abbotsford. The local team won 5-0;  A. Harry netting the ball three  times and B. Catchpole and E. N ut-th  cote one apiece.   From the kickoff  the ball went.out'to Harry at out-  aide left and fie with', remarkable  speed took it right into goal "and  centered   it. The kick.went begging  however and "the Abbotsford forwards broke' away only, to be safely hald by the Mission defence. After about fifteen   m.uiute'9   of   the'  game Harry hit thegoaTkeeper with  he  ball  and  Nor'thcote   taking   it  ������n  the  rebound placed  it  safely  out of the goalkeeper's re a- h.   Af-  'pr   this   -"h^   gam's   was   nevar   in  doubt and before half time Harry  added' the "oecoafd  [notch   with   a  neat shot.   On changing over  the  Mission, boys at once  opened  the  attack and Catchpole was playing  a   good game at outsida rights hit  the goal keeper, and as before, had  no difficulty in scoring, putting the  ball through the custodian's legsv  The game was worth watching";?/  only to see how the three little inside men fed their outside partners  and as   a   result of this combina-:  tiion Catchpole _ave the goal-keeper Httle chance of saving the fourth  goal;   A "few minutes later Harry,'  who was playing at extraordinary  speed, dribbled the ball all the way  from the centre and scored.   Soon  after R. Cox hit the post .with   a  fine   shot   which   the   goal-keeper  could not  have' got.   On   one   or  two occasions the. Abbotsford for-"  wards could have scored but  the.  chances were (missed.   J. Hieath, of  Abbotsford refereed the -game very  fairly and gave igeneral suti f���������c ion.  ���������Con.
