ELECTRIC / LIGHT  Successfully Turned on'  Xast Saturday  Power - Company   Will  Distribute  Energy  for Many Purposes.  One of the most important events  in the history of Atlin City, was  the turning on of the electric lights  by the British Columbia Power &  Manufacturing Co. The event is  one which will benefit our citizens  and greatly minimise the danger of  -fire and should be the means of reducing the very heavy fire insurance  premiums now in vogue. The  Company besides lighting will  furnish power which will prove of  incalculable value in the way of  opening up new enterprises.  The power at present is furnished  through the medium of two 15 K. W.  Edison Machines which operate a  generator with a capacity of 1000  lines of 16 candle power each. The  electricity is generated at a voltage  of no, and transmitted by low  tension wires.  Next year the    Company    will  The Societe Miuiere is cleaning  bedrock with the usual good results.

The tasks imposed may sometimes be difficult, the path  may be strewn with obsti^cles, but the  prize is worth the smuggle. Self-conquest and suffering are the badge of'  the true Christian. Ts conquer enemies from without and within, to place  beneath his feet the world and everything that allures from the paths of  virtue and righteousness, is the duty  of every one who takes on himself the  yoke of Christ.  The struggle for self-mastery, the  desire to overcome pride and sensuality, to bring rebellious passion into  the subjection of the spirit, are not  things to be feared. As the pine on  the mountain side has more strength  and stability than the sycamore of the  vale because of the tempests jt has  endured, so docs the soul attain the  true fibre of Christian virtue and perfection by, triumphing over the storms  of passion and the aridity of doubt  Did Not Know Their Names.

Dur-  fcag dinner a guarded reference was made  lo tho Emperor's death. "Why do you  speak so gingerly about a matter so notorious ?" cried Tennyson Impulsively,  leaning across hl3 neighbor, a Russian,  whose breast was covered with orders.  "We know very well In England thai, the  Emperor Paul wai murdered Count  Zoboff knocked him down and Bcnnlng-  nen and Count Pah'en strangled him "  There was a strained Mlenco ; then tho  Ambassador abruptly changed the sub-  Joetf.

One very good way'of disposing of  the surplus skim milk with profit-is  to feed it to the poultry. As a feed  for<ffoultry it furnishes the material for  making growth in a palatable, easily-  digested form. For this reason it is  especially valuable as an addition to a  grain ration which is liable to lack in  the materials to make growth.  The Indiana experiment station fed  two lots of growing chickens exactly  alike, except one lot received-all the  skim milk they would eat, in addition  to the grain ration The lot having  grain, but no skim milk, made an average,gain of 2.62 ounces per week. ,The  lot receiving skim milk made a gain of  4.46 ounces. The conclusion' of this  experiment was as  follows:���  "If skim milk be added to the ration  fed young chickens, it will increase the  consumption* of other foods given. The  greatest increase in gain was coincident with the period when the greatest amount of skim milk was consumed. Skim milk is especially valuable  as a food for young chickens, during  the hot, dry weather, and becomes of  less importance as the chickens gFOw  older, and the weather becomes cooler." '      "  The New York experiment station  found skim milk a vcty ,economical  feed for producing growth in chickens  Tn these experiments the- skim milk  was valued at 25 rents per 100 pounds,  but some careft'l pouitry-fecders believe 50 cents per hunched not too high  in valuation.  Skim milk can be fed sweet or after  it is quite th'ck and sour. " It is necessary, in feeding it in any form to  poultry, to take great care that the  troughs or utensils in which it is fed  be kept clean. Lack of attention to  this point is about the only cause of  poor results from feeding skim milk  as an addition tn the grain ration for  poultry.���-Maine Farmer.

As election day is drawing near  there aie issues which we would  veiy much like to see decided.  Thai paity politics are supposed to  govern the line of action for future  . Biitish Colombia pailianients can-  '110I but be acknowledged as the  only safe and reliable manner of  conducting the aflaiis of the country.  In our elcctoial district both  parties claim to have a. majority ot  supporters upon the voting list,  but we fail to see why cither can  lay just claim to a majority. Up  ,to the present dale' there has been  absolutely no test by which' a  preponderance ' of votes can be  claimed. As a matter of fact, generally speaking,- all B. C. .consti-  tueuces, excepting cities, have been  governed entiiely by local issues.  If in the forthcoming election the  electors will, and we hope they  will, vote according to party lines,  we shalf then be able to say that  Atlui is either 'Libeial or Conserva-  tive.  ���The advisability of having the  election based'on party lines needs  no recommendation on our part, and  we urge upon the intelligence of  the electors to support either one of  the great parties; no one need be  afraid of saying he is Liberal, or a  Conservative, but every one entitled  to vote should be one or the other  world and demand retribution, and  it is not. at all, improbable, and  greatly to be desired, that Turkey,  so far as Turkish rule is concerned, be wiped off the map,'  A Gala.Time.

She named  the pretty creaure Jack,  and it was  not Ions before he became a great favorite in the   household,   though "he  lavished .his undivided attention and  affection, upon his little mistress and  paid but small heed to the others.   .As  time wore on the puppy's sleek   liUlo  body lengthened considerably and he  grew rapidly into   a big   healthy dos  with a    decided    bent    for    hunting.

Long nails, very wide at the top and  bluish In appearance, denote bad circulation. Long-nailed men and women  are less critical and more Impressionable than those with short nails.

He told during the New Orleans convention a little  story that was-not reported.

There was nothing to remember, because  Memory meant pain. There was less to  hope for.' Milagh had seen to that. The  present was Jbers alone, with empty  dreams to fill it full of mockery. Blank  days, and blanker nights, yet full of the  summer's rarest 'witcheries���bhe sun-  kissed flowers, the strong breath of sea-  scented grass, the slow dawns, and purple-misted sunsets. And through all, the  sea itself, pulsing and leaping, foaming  and surging under the smile of a sky  never rain-clouded.  - These things passed before her like  shadows; their joys of springing sap and  blooming bud did not enter into^ the  darkened house of hei- soul; but"1 uneon-  sdously^to her the beauty was healing  'her. In time even the thrawed faith  might be woven to perfection again.  It was the crisis in Eilisheen's life, and  she standing eoilitary with none to guide  or bless. -   '  Through *11 the dull days, before and  after Donnan's comingj she was aware of  a presence���a Someone who watched her,  never intruding, but lynx-eyed, from cliff  end inland1 hill, by .shore and'meadow.  She met the gaze of steady eyes sometimes through the matted tangles of  blackberry briars; sometimes they  stared up at her \out of a covering of  -whispering brackens; or oftener, as she  sat on a rock, with her fingers busy in  wonderful embroideries, a footstep would  crunch the sandy gravel behind her, and,  .without looking, she knew it for the  same. If she did turn her head suddenly,  she would catch a glimpse of a tall figure, witti its burden of nets slung loosely round the broad shoulders. Those  same strong arms would fesrlessly breast  the sweep of tlie long rollers, cleaving  the green waters with even stroke, and  tossing the white feathers of the spray  backwards, till it gleamed as a crown of  ,snow on1 the swimmer's bronze hair. At  such times bhe girl muttered a,prayer  for his safety, for the human life ou[,  there, at the mercy of wind and tide,  seemed_so_pitifully "frail. _..:_. '���,<&visile need "not have feared for him. On  all the s��a border there was none bravei'  or more skilled in the cunning wisdom of  *&?_ ??*��� There was the glamor and  gloom" of mystery about him, and he Tel  it remain so. His home was perched on  a tiny island, of rock .and tmf, ot. the  mouth of the bay, and there lie had buiR  him a house. It was accounted at castle  by the folk on the mainland,1-and they  told in hushed tones of the curious  woods and rare hangings he had garnished his nest with, things cast at his  very threshold by the wanton hands oi  the sea. For by that island many ships  came to anchor, and their harborage wa��  fathoms down, down on tho cruel, jagged  teebh of hidden, reefs. On the landward,  sunny side of his kingdom, i'reel the  Frisian nride a sleeping place for those'  whom he found when the storm calmed  and there they sleep to this day.  He spoke, to few, and no one had  crossed Ids doorway. He was held as an/  alien, a stranger, one whotc ways were}  outlandish, and only the fact of his iroiu  fist, and manner of using it, kept the  fisher-people from laughing at him when)  he strode amongst them. But, after'  months of silent interest, Eilisheen grew'  to think him the incarnation of the sc*  itself; strong and mysteiious.  iStiil hoping against hope she climbed  the hill and scanned the roud to the  north. Perhaps bhe old love was dying,  and she was striving to keep it alive for  the sake of memory. Milagh's uiehc wa.-i  enxpty; she would not have allowed him'  had he come, to step into her heart and  life again. She was nma/cd at her own  inconstancy, and so stiovo to quicken the  whitening cmbeis of affection into tli(  crimson flame of love, by spending lone  hours of watching on the giay cairn. It  was about that time she remembered  'how to smile, and bhe used to sing to  ,nerseii, aaui then' stop, as If the past hail   7<''  ���> just put its- icy hand on her and frozen  '^  the music dumb.   But she could not help    ''  her face changing into1 happy beauty.1        r1  One day in mid-winter, when the after-    <  moon was glooming to dtiak, and the sea <     ',  woe moaning sullenly,  she   ran   lightly    ,i  up  the  worn  sheep-track,   holding  her"    ',���  scarlet hood round her closely, for the^'  air was nipping.    "Foi  the last (time," r '>  v  she said, as she stood breathless on the    '   '  summit, and the thought brought little ,  or no sorrow with it. ' ���        '  t  Before she could tsc&n the frozen road1 ",,  beneath her a voice spoke, softly out of ' .  the twilight.
