They  Friday  last  the  New   Westminster   market   furnished   good  evidence that spring- is here.   There  was  an' almost  total   absence , of  vegetables at retail; plants, shrubs  flowers and tthubar.d were" on safe  and spring Balmon made1 their apr  pearance.   Bright,  balmy   weather,  .brought  out  /a   large  attendance  and the isales were "brisk.

Pork and  vealr -were-'plentiful-at -���������wholesale,*-  but beef arid mutton! were scarce,  which' haa'ibeen the, case*, lately .on  the market. Most ,of the pork cariie,  .frohi. Mt. Lehman. ' .

The usual variety of\ meats were'  offered at retail, with'; no changes  in prices.   In fact the^/ market was  particularly marked 'by   a   lack ol  ohangea in prices in moat departments.

Several times- h's  i.'fe was" in great danger, not only .  from 'the natives, but also from his  many journeys by water to surrounding centres.

Of all people  :i lhe wor 1 cl Uie R o mana took the  noat pains in forming roads; the  '.riibor and expense they -were* at in  rendering them spacioris, f'.rm,  straight, and'smooth are incredible.  The Via .Appia waa a road long  enough to (make a five ' "days'  journey on from end to end. II  waa miade nearly 2000 yean ��������� ag.i  and for'.several miles at a stretch  it ia as good as when first made.  The old Roman Roads of England,  Watling Street, the Portsmouth  Road, etc., are as good today as  ���������entui'ies ago-; but the Vicfcor'a  Embankment, made ,in irecen': years  'iaiB swallowed ,up (millions of money, owing to defective construction  reg/u,Vation;s touching waterrlghts,  within Dominion Lands in British-  Columbia.    *  QUESTIONS ON MARRIAGE LAW  ���������' The terms of the reference to the  Supreme, Court of Canada in respect to the Lancaster 'marrLgfc b 1'  were made, public last .n'.ght. On  the adviceTof the minister of Jus-  ti<ce the '-.following, ques'tions are  those upon which the. court's announcement is .asked.  : .1. (a) Has^the parliament:-.of Canada authority to .enact ill whole or  in part Bill JSTci 3 of the first session' the 12th parliament of Canada, instituted "An Act to amend  the Marriage Act."  The  bill provides  as  follows:  l  The Marriage Act, chapter 105 of  at first, and the  wonder  is it has   the revised statutes, 1106. is amend-  see  sight." Roads we have been promised, roiads we hope to get are  "noit yet in sight." ' "Mr. Robert  Mantell the other night made Richelieu give great force to woifda  "When the lion's ,skin runs short  eke it out with the fox's." Let  us parody thet 'saying, "When gdv-  ornm-ent fails to- do its duty, the  Progress Club must step in." The  Progress* Club���������more :power to it-  has risen to the occasion and' if  much needed roiads are made in  the near future we may perhaps  have reason to be grateful to Granville street than to Ottawa or Victoria.  In Ireland a gallant general is  ������ amembered as a. roadt-fciaker,  while the government's department  [responsible for .such work is forgotten or execrated. An inscription on a\ bor*(rd nyi" a roadside  is a fine evidence of Pat's gratitude, if it does not evince much  ability in literary ^composition :  "If you'd .seen these roads  before  they were made,      '  ��������� Yo-si would lift up your hands and  bless General Wade."  British Columbia can show many  places where roads  are  conspicuous, by their absence; many places  which have roiads resembling  one  in   a   lone district ,of the Emerald  Isle: "You scoundrel^" said a horse  man, up to his horse's girth in mud  shaking  his   whip  at   a! "grinning  peasant; "you scoundrel, you told  me litis road was hard at the bottom." "And. -bedad, so it  is," said-  P.it; "but you're not half way down  id (he ��������� bottom yet!"     '  We have advanced in m ny things,  since   the   days   of  Julius   Caesar.  noiti swallowed up   a   lot of vehicular and pedestrian traffic.  ORIGIN OF WOMEN :  .Vi-o.ptrding to ri Hindu legend  this is the origin of wohii.n. Twash  trl, the good Vulcan of the Hindu  ���������nythology, created the world, but  on his commencing to create woman he discovered that for man he  had exhausted all his creative materials, and not one solidi element  had been left. This greatly, perplexed Twashtri and caused him  to fall into a profound meditation. When he arose from it he  took:  The roundness of the moon.  The uun'dulsit'ng curve of the serpent."  The graceful" twist" of the- creep-  ng - plant.  The light isnivering of the.grass  blade and ?'the slenderneas 'of" the  willow<  The velvet of the flowers.  The.lightness of the feathers.,  The"g'entleN:ga"ze of the'doe.  The frolicaomenessof :the dancing aunbeaxh. *.  , The?teara of the cloud.  The inconsistency of the'w'nd.  The timidity of the hare.  The vanity of' the peacock.  The; hardness of the diamond..  The* cruelty of the tiger.  The chill of the snow.  The cackling of the parrot.  The cooing of the turtle dove..  All of "theae he  mixed  together  and   formed   a   woman. ���������  RAILWAY BELT WrATER RIGHTS  -������������������       ��������� -i : I I ;| j-  The   official   Gazette (of   British  Columbia will contain an  announcement of ��������� the Water.

The'notice referred to enumerates, in so far as they are at  present' known,  the  multitude   of  streams within the belt and invites  all- who  have claima  pendtag   for  water righta as. well, as; those who  may. feel that they. have, interests  prejudicially or otherwise affected  in connection with 'such claims, to  file  their, claims or  objections: :at  the earliest possible date-with the  provincial  water   authorities,  who  will, as soon as   the   claims have  been received and claas^Led, proceed  to   adjudicate  upon  them   it  being both hoped and expected that  rulings  will   be   handed,  down   in  time for the water affected  to be  made  use   of  during   the   present  irrigation season.

'  OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  TUBERCULAR  FOWLS  Visitation    of   Tuberculosis   to    the  Hen-Run   Should  Be  Tackled  Earnestly From the Outset.  Tuberculosis is caused by a bacillus  or germ, and the parts of the body-  usually ^ first attacked are the ��������� Intestines," liver and spleen, the infection being taken in with ' food  which has been contaminated by contact with the droppings of affected  birds. Examination of the body after  death reveals small whitish patches,  called tubercles, in the liver, spleen,  and on the lining of the intestines,'  but .these may be found in other parts  also.  It is not ��������� possible to treat this  disease successfully, and attention  should, therefore, be directed to  methods of prevention. Since the  bowels are usually affected, the droppings of tubercular birds are the  p'-'-" source of infection. Birds which  are ailing and' which exhibit the  symptoms of tuberculosis should,  therefore, be destroyed. The stock  remaining should be carefully examined, and healthy birds transferred  to fresh quarters. The old quarters  should undergo a thorough cleaning  and disinfecting, and be allowed to  remain unoccupied for several  months.  Where a serious outbreak occurs It  Is safer to clear off the entire stock,  then to apply freshly-burned lime to  the ground, and rear a fresh stock in  a portable house on new ground.  1 Tb -> most common symptom is  diarrhoea, with the droppings of a  greyish vellow color. In the later  stages affected birds become very  feeble and thin, the comb and wattles  shrink In size nn* turn pale or dull  purple in color. The mucous membranes which surround the "eye and  line the mouth are also pale "and  there ** loss "f appetite.  Matsqui   Hote  MISSIPNCITY, B.C.

The book  is an intimate study of the heart of  a woman ��������� daringly conceived and  brilliantly executed. A storm of discussion has been started wherever  <*The Dangerous Age" has appeared,  for it is not a book for sweet sixteen  to read.

There are two fine bridges over these  falls, so one can sue them plainly  from the car window. I,.remember I  was Just going to the dining-car as  we came to  them  (1'������ last  trip."  "Greedy girl, always eating," said  Biddy.  "I am always hungry when travelling,' 'said Judy, "and it stimulates  one's appetite ,to have a moving pic-.  ture show when one is at the table.  A few hours after leaving St. John,  we came to the lovely St. Croix  River, and here we are in Vnnceboro.  the town close to the boundary 'between New Brunswick and the state  of Malj������e. I know the customs officers here, and always ask them if  they have > anything new or amusing  to tell of their experiences with tra-  ��������� vellers going between .the. two countries. You know we are all inspected,  we Canadians, and you Americans,  and shabby looking persons are asked  what  their .prospects  are."  "You, didn't need to have your  trunk examined, as, you were going  to Montreal, did you?" Inquired  Jane.  "No,- so I had some fun .watching  others,, notably-an old woman from  a farm in Nova Scotia who was going  to .visit hrr daughter, in Boston. She  h: \ handed.the inspector her key, and  he had unlocked the trunk, and was  carefully- lifting things when she  squealed in a voice that made me  Jump 'Don't you tetch it���������don't you  tetch. it! '  "He straightened himself, and said';  'Touch what, madam?'  "'That little tub of -butter,* she  replied. 'I'm takin' it to my daughter in Boston. She wouldn't stay.  home on our dandy farm, and butter's  such an awful price in Boston that  she can't afford to buy it. Now,  don't you tetch it.'  "He grinned like a Chessy cat, and  handed her the key, then whisked  the strap round her clumsy, old, hair  trunk."  Biddy, who was following the railway route on the map, asked, "Can't  you cross Canada without dropping  down into the.state of Maine?"  "Oh yes, we have other lines, very  picturesque ones, but longer. This is  what we call the short line to Montreal."  "I think it is very kind in this  government to let a Canadian line  run through their country," remarked Biddy in a belligerent tone.  "If you wish me to argue that  point, Biddy, my friend," said Judy,  "you will be. disappointed. Can we  Nova Scotians who earn our living,  and marry and Intermarry and form  warm friendships in this country,  object to anything that increases the  good feeling between our respective  governments? No; long live international civilities, say I. I heard a  man out west one day In the train  grumbling about the unprotected  three thousand miles of boundary between us and the States. 'Sir,' I said,  'who is going to attack that three  thousand-mile line?'  " 'Why, those greedy Americans,'  he " replied. 'Don't you suppose  they'll want to gobble us up some  day?'  "'Sir,' I said, 'that unprotected  three thousand miles of boundary-  line is our glory and pride.'  " 'How so?' he asked.  "'Because it shows the -'rong and  tender ties existing between the two  countries. Did you ever hecr of the  Christ of the Andes?'  ���������"No,' he replied testily, 'I don't  know what you mean.'  "'Five years ago,' I said, 'the two  high-spirited republics of Chile and  Argentine were on the brink of a  rupture. Some of their good bishops,  aided by the British ministers,  begged them to try beneficent peace  Instead of horrid war. They, therefore, settled their quarrel by means  of arbitration, agreed to reduce their  armies to police forces, and, to stop  building frg.ttieg.blps. ,.

Some war vessels are merchant  steamers, and now there Is love Instead of hatred between Chileans and  Argentines. On a certain Easter  Sunday, a Roman Catholic bishop in  Buenos Ayres, .said, 'Let us. have a  statue of the Prince of Peace between  i  the two countries.' The Christian  Mothers' Association of Buenos Ayres  eageriy took up the project, secured  funds, and had a young Argentine  sculptor make, a statue from old  cannon. Senora de Costa, the president of the society, stood,at the foot  of this noble statue of Christ which  has a cross in one hand and the  other extended In blessing, and with  inspired eloquence, Pegged a largo  audience of Chileans fend Argentines,  to place this representation of the  Saviour of the world, on the highest  peak of the mountains between tho  two countries.  CHAPTER, VII.  A Commercial Metropolis.  "I have been In Montreal at an ica  carnival," said Peanuts, "and the 3ity  is thoroughly . up-to-date, and &i  handsome as.Bangor."  . ...I-L.IU.'L' 23frf. '  They, all laughed at her, and Judy'  B&ld, "Naughty Peanuts! Montreal  could swallow a , dozen. Bangors.  Speaking of, Ice carnivals, some of  the Montreal merchants objected to  them,, because they, gave the impression outside, that Canadn Is a land  of ice and sno.w only. I think myself, it was a mistake to give up the  carnivals. Montreal Is a very, hot  place In summer, and in winter It  never seems to me colder than  Bangor, for example, or any of your  northern cities, and if it were, snow  and Ice keep a city's population  clean. The lazy and vicious dont'  thrive In an atmosphere be.low.ze.ro..  They've got to work, so they hurry  away to  warmer climes."  "And are there no slums in, Canada?"  asked  Eiddy.->    . ���������  Judy's face fell. "Alas! yes. Our  Dominion has not, yet, solved, the  waste, problem, but we have fewer  slums than other countries. Mon-,  treal is' called our commercial metropolis. Someone told rr.e the'other  day that there are sixty-two millionaires there."  "Generous?" ejaculated Jane, with  uplifted eyebrows.  "Some of them. Lord Strathcona  and others have been very, good to  McGill University. You have heard  of it?"  "One of my cousins went there for  his medical course," said Peanuts.  "McGill ranks with the greatest  universities in the -"-orld, now," continue/! Judy. "I remember once going through Drexel Institute In Philadelphia .with a dear American colonel, who ,sald, 'Come over to this  group.' The group consisted of a  gray-haired Montreal millionaire  who was travelling with several professors from McGill. 'They were  thinking of enlarging .their equipment there, and were .visiting Amerir  can institutions to. get , advanced  knowledge of new methods of wo:k  The colonel introduced them to me.  and I found  them charming."  "My cousin spoke of a college residence for women at McGill," observed Peanuts.  "That is Donalda Hall. About  sixty girls live an ideally happy life  there, in home-like surroundings.  Student government prevails. If a  girl has time for study, I don't know  of any better training for her than  the delightfully moulding.atmosphere  of a good college residence. It inspires you on. the one hand, and  takes the conceit out of you on the  other. It lifts you up, and casts you  down. It takes off the corners, without making you as round as all. the  other pebbles. Oh! a good woman's  residence university graduate is a  flower of perfect womanhood."  "Is this residence any nicer than  ours?" Inquired Peanuts sturdily,  yet with a certain wistfulness in her.  tone.  Judy sprang to her feet, and seised  the diminutive Peanuts', hands so  abruptly that her sewing fell to th������  floor.

In  reposej the bird, with its' delicate  ash-grey and white plumage, harmonises so; completely in tone with its  environment that it becomes one with  its natural surroundings. Even on  a flat beach or shore, it may  pass for a fragment of rock or wooden  stake, or some other long-shore object,  until it moves.  A natlent fisher is the heron', but  when' its prey comes within reach the  long neck curves and the;; rapier-like  bill Is   shot  out   quickly   and   un.er--.  ringly.  The Dawick-Herony is a good instance of the 'attachment, of the species,,to one-locali)^:, .as nests are to  be found there; at the present day;  and, so far back as 1497, "Qiiyk  (living) ��������� herounis" v.-ere being-supplied from "Dawikkis" to the King,  as Is stated in the "Accounts of the  Lord'High.Treasurer."       .

The development, of English rugby  in the colonies the last few years  has been enormous and it is safe to  predict that a quadrangular rugby  test, in which the .old country, New  Zealand, Australia, 'South Africa and  Canada will participate, will in all'  probability before long, be an accomplished fact, running on the same  lines as the inter-contests in cricket.

INTERESTING OCEAN FACTS'  Complete  Evaporation   Would  Leave  an Immense Deposit of Salt Two  Hundred  and   Thirty   Feet  Thick.  Oceans occupy throe-fourths of the  earth's surface. At the depth of 3,500  feet waves are not felt. The temperature is the same, varying- civly a trifle  from the poles to the burning sun of  the equator. A mile down the water  has -a pressure of a ton on every  square inch. If a box ������ix feet deep  were  filled   with   salt water   and   al-  Martin was the star performer at, lowed to evaporate, there would be  Notre-Dame University. He won the, two Inches of salt left on the bottom  ���������hundred yard American championship  of the box.   Taking the average depth  at Seattle in 1909.  of the oceans of the world to be three  miles, there would be a layer of salt  230 feet .thick, over the entire bed  should the water evaporate. The  water of the ocean is colder at the  bottom than at the surface.

The players do not  "boot the pigskin" at all these days.  There is nothing of -the hog in the  get up of the article..   ..._'���������'  available forms. If the soil is a heavy  clay and inclined to bake, lime would  have. a. tendency to make the soi1  more friable, and hence more suiter'  to plant growth. If the land is sour,  as evidenced by the growth of such  plants as sheep sorrel, or horse tail  an application of. 1.000 to 1,500 lbs. 6/  lime per acre would be decidedly  beneficial. Lime, also acts to a certain extent on the* unavailable plant  food of the soil making it available  for (he use of the plants, but the result of this action of lime in the long  run is still greater impoverishment  of the soil.  As a direct fertilizer, lime is of particular   value   for   clover,.    In   fajQt,  Waves are very deceptive. To look  at them in a storm'.one would think  that the whole water traveWed.

The base of a wave ��������� the distance from valley to valley on either  side at the bottom ��������� is generally  .reckoned at being 15 times the height,  therefore an average wave; say one  25 feet high, has a base extending  over 275 feet.

Hardening the Gums  The mouth often needs an antiseptic, wasih, for hardening the gums  end purifying the Jbreath; the best  thing for this purpose is tincture of  myrrh, a few drops in a glass of water  to rinse t'he mouth. It leaves a clean,  pure taste in the mouth, and will  relieve the 'breath of any unpleasantness for a short while.  As most good remedies are often  the ones nearest at hand, we find  that borax water, not too strong, will  whiten the teeth wonderfully, using  it.like ordinary water, with no other  dentifrice. As borax is a powerful  germ-destroyer, it will arrest decay  and so stay the work of destruction  until one can get to the dentist. Common salt is a good dentifrice, used  occasionally, especially in cases where  the gums need hardening, but it  ������hould not be used. often, as the  ���������powerful acid is-strong for the delicate enamel of the teeth. ,  Hang Up the Broom  A broom should never be stood on  the straws after using, but there  should be a stringloop, or ring with  A Tasty Irish Stew.

Man's Economy  One day, as a farmer of extraordinary meanness was starting out for  the 'town to do his weekly shopping  ���������for even he had to buy something  for the support of his family ��������� his  wife came out and asked ,him to buy  her a darning-needle.  "What's the matter with the one  I bought you last winter?" asked the  farmer.  "The eye has broken," she. replied.  "Bring the needle here," he said.  "I'm not going to allow such extravagance. I'll have the needle  mended."  The woman, wise in her generation,  made no protest. She brought out the  broken needle.  The economical farmer rode away  into the town, and made his first  stop at the blacksmith's shop. He  took out the needle, and gave it to  the blacksmith.  "I  want  that  mended," ��������� he  said.  The blacksmith knew, his customer,  and, keeping his face perfectly  straight, said the eye should be mended in an hour's time.  .  The farmer rode away, and the  blacksmith walked across the road  and bought a new needle for a  cent. When the *- farmer called  again, the blacksmith gave him the  new needle.  The farmer looked at the smooth,  polished surface of the steel, and remarked that It was a good job. "How  much will it be?" said he.'  "Five cents," said the blacksmith,  and the farmer as he paid it remarked  that he knew that the needle. could  be meWded, but his wife would have  gone to the expense of buying a new  one!
