Already 22,000,000 bushels have  gone through Winnipeg for export via water route this fall.  All other traffic is being sidetracked for the grain ri*nh. Even  passenger travel gives way to  fast grain trains.  Thc opening of traffic on the  'Grand Trunk Pacific from Edmonton to Fort William has expedited the grain movement  largely. High prices en used  farmers to release all their grain  instead of holding the chief  ume for later sale, i    .

'   Operations at the Fife mines  are temporarily suspended pending installation of larger machinery.  A great strike of galena thirty  inches wide has been unearthed  at the Blue Bird mine at Rossland District.  The district shipments -were:  Boundary, 28,409 tons; Slocau-  Kootenay, 5,927 tons and Rossland, 4,619 tons.  Between the 20th and the 26th  of October the Boundary mines  shipped 27,925 tons of ore, and  for tbe present year 1,346,507  tons.  The smi'lters report the follow"  ing receipts: Tho B. C. (J.

It proved that Mrs. Crippen had  disappeared���that her husband  was unable to give any satisfactory explanation of her whereabouts���that there were the remnants of a human body found  buried in Crippen's cellar���that  there were traces of a rare poison  called hyoscine in this body���  that Crippen had purchased this  poison and that he was not able  to explain satisfactorily what he  had done witb it. On the other  hand, the Crown was not able to  prove that Mrs. Crippen was  dead���that tbe body found was  even a female's body, or that Dr.  Crippen had not sought to flee  merely because he saw trouble in  store for him and an opportunity  to avoid a scandal. The point is  tbat in the English courts the  procedure is such that it is enowgli  for the prosecutor to prove the  main facts and to demand tbat  tbe defendant explain them away  if he can."

No Overtures  From  Canada  "Any proposals , the United  States may make for reciprocity  with Canada will receive careful  consideration from the Dominion  government, but tl e attitude of  the Canadian people now is 'to let  well enough alone.' "  This was the opi lion expressed by Sir Frederick W,  minister of militia  of Canada at the Inter-Colonial  club at Boston.  "In view of the!  buffs which the Canadian statesmen have received from the United States in their .efforts to secure more amicable tariff relations," be said, ''.Canada will  make no overtures tcj this country  and any.reciprocitvitreaty which  the United States may offer will  have to be in the best interests of  all Canadians before it will be  adopted."'

Monthly metal  statistics promise to be increasingly favorable for a long period  of time, assuring continued and  growing speculative interest in  copper shares."  Last week the Consolidated  Company's smelter at Trail received the following amounts of  ore in addition to the tonnage  from Rossland: St. Eugene, 150  tons; Snowshoe, 2,131 tons;  Richmond-Eureka, 59 tons; Yankee Girl, 85 tons; Molly Hughes,  34 tons; Sullivan, 838 tons; No.  Seven, 31 tons.  The Granby smelter at Grand  Forks received from the company's mines at Phoenix, 13,646  tons of ore.  Messrs. Thompson, TowleJ&  Co., of New York, in their letter,  say: "We are very optimistic as  to the copper situation, and believe that 13 l-4c copper is a possibility before the close of the  year. This would only be 3-8c  above the present, prices and  would not be sufficient to check  consumption, but would add very  materially to the profits of the  producing companies who have  not been able to make an adequate return on the capital in>  vested, to say nothing of the 11  quidation of assets.  Prices and the Pubiie  There is still a merchant here  and there who acts as if he  thought the public ought to  know what he has in his store  without being told about it. Here  is a case in point:  A newspaper representative  dropped into a store the other  day, and during the conversation  the inevitable subject of department stores cropped up. Picking  up an article, the merchant said:  "There is an article I am selling  cheaper than anv of the depart-  munt stores. I know it from  actual .investigation."  "Tbat may be true," replied  the newspaper man, "and I believe it is so; but you are not advertising the fact."  The thrust was a just one. The  merchant was a non-advertiser.  It is hoped the incident will bring  about a change of heart.  This is not an isolated case.  There are others in �� similar position, but there are too many of  them who never seem to think of  heralding tbe fact abroad. They  seem to think the public are mind  readers and should know without  being told that they can buy to  better advantage at home than  sending east.  Advertising is telling the news  of   the   merchandise  which   the  merchant   or   the    manufacturer  has for sale.   Every business man  who makes or keeps an article for  sale has this news to tell.    If he  does not know it and refrains from  announcing it  in the  columns of  the local newspaper, he   is either  asleep or  in need  of a little education regarding the place of  advertising    in    modern    business  methods.

Tree Growing  Why not grow your owu maple  and ash trees for yourself, if you  want to make forest plantations,  or even to plant shade trees?  Anyone who*has had any experience in gardening can do this  without difficulty and the trees,  when they come to be planted,  will not have to meet the risk of  a long .journey by railway and  possibly dfelays "which may injure  and possibly kill them. The  Forestry branch of the department of the interior will gladly  give advice iu the matter, and  eyen send the seed free, as long  as their supply holds out.  This recommendation is made  in the annual report of the Superintendent of Foresty, which  forms part of the annual report I  of the department of the interior,  lately issued.  One caution must, however, be  given. The seed nsed should always, if possible, be takeu from  trees grown in the Canadian  Northwest- Seed obtained from  trees grown in the eastern provinces of the Dominion, or even  from the prairie states, cannot be  depended on to produce good,  hardy trees.

The  chances are thai if the average  English speaking person found  himself in a community partly  or even largely French-speaking  he would feel it his duty to sec  that his children availed themselves of the opportunity to learn  French. He would take proper  care   that  they   learned   English  by the strongest of sentimental  ties. Any politician who cannot  see that evolution going ou iu  Ouebec must be blind al least in  one eye.  WOMEN AND BUSINESS  After thirty years devoted with  much success to the real estate  business. Mrs. Agues Mulligan,  a member of the New York Real  too. I3ut if some one would come j Estate Exchange, advised Women  nlong with a proposition that his not to engage in business. Physi-  children must learn French and cal limitations and the danger of  must not he taught English��� losing the ideals that are neces-  well,   on   all the   historv of   the  sary for home life and the proper  people who came hither from  England, Ireland and Scotland it  would not be silenced short of  trouble. The man who speaks  French no doubt feels very much  the .same way about il. Learn  English? Yes, by all means,  where there is half a chance. But  be deprived of the right to have  one's children learn French? Not  while resistance can be offered.  Natural and manful enough, isn't  it?  It may be quite proper to aspire to the ultimate displacement  of French by English on this  continent as best for all concerned. But surely the latest knowledge of human nature would suggest that much the easiest road  to the goal is by inducing people  to talk English, not by trying to  bully them into it, which produces an inevitable and very definite reaction.  There have been a dozeu manifestations of this reaction, intensified perhaps into direct action  itself, in the last few weeks. Any  shrewd observer can discern that  there is rapidly taking form in  Ouebec, with Montreal as a center, a concentration of purpose  upon the intensely natural and  human resolve that one's children  should be taught the language  one learned from his mother, this  concentration   beiug   largely due  upbringing of children, are reasons assigued by Mrs. Mulligan  for her conclusions.  '���Thirty years of busiuess," she  says, "have convinced me that  women's sphere is home and  motherhood, not business. I have  five girls, the eldest 17 years old,  the youngest two months, and I  should consider it the greatest  calamity if one of thein went into business. I did it because 1  had to.    It was necessary to take  DANDRUFF GERMS MUST GO  In Cauada the dandruff germs must  go. The war of extermination lias  been declared. The battle has begun,  and already thousands of intelligent  Canadians have permanently rid themselves of this filthiness.  To day it is no more necessary for a  man to have dandruff in his hair than  to have tartar on his teeth.  Dandruff can never be cured until  the small, aggravat-nj* and indomin-  able dandruff germ is conquered and  destroyed.  And millions of dandruff gerinsh&ve  been destroyed, thanks t:> the great  scientist and dermatologist who gave  to the world Parisian Sage, the ouly  real dandruff cure and hair grower the  the world has ever known.  If you have dandruff, Parisian Sage  will cure you in two weeks.  But besides ridding the scalp of  daudruff, Parisian Sage is guaranteed  to stop falling hair and itching of the  scalp. It is not a dye. It is a prime  favorite with women of retiueinent.  It makes the hair soft, lustrous and  beautiful, ami is not sticky or  greasy.  A large bottle for .So cents at J.

In public schools  and in commercial colleges nil  over this continent young women  are taught book-keeping, typewriting, stenography and business meihads. Hundreds nl thousands of young women arc earning a livelihfod by working iu  business offices, where they soon  learn thc details of trade. Considering the great army of young  women so employed it is remarkable that more of them do not  advance to a point where they  will become partners of their employers or oflicers of employing  corporations.  Probablv the explanation is  that the employment thus afforded is only regarded so temporary, and that every girl notwithstanding her daily occupation in tbe business world, looks  forward to the time when she  will become a wife and preside  over a home. The domestic instinct is not smothered'or deadened by toil that is necessary for  self-support.  Experience iu the busines--  world does not, as all see, unfit a  women for domestic life. The  girl who has battled with the  world, maintained her self-respect aud the esteem of others, is  all the better able to take care of  herself as a wife and mother by  reason of her early experience.  The struggle has taught her to  comprehend thc value of money  and very likely she has acquired  the desirable habit of saving a  pait of her weekly wage, traits  which a husband, the bread-winner of the household, will appreciate.  Thousands of working women  will appreciete Mrs. Mulligan's  advice, making their present occupation merely a stepping stone  to that higher life, for both men  and women���the family circle.  imperial .-parliament, including  the colonies at the home rule  meeting last night. He wants  Canada to put her head into the  noose that he is endeavoring to  extricate Ireland from. The connection between Canada and the  mother country now is ideal.  Ireland is representated at Westminster but that docs riot reconcile her to having Irish questions  decided by llie parliament of the  United Kingdom. As you point  out in your editorial today, Mr.  O'Conner's suggestion is just the  opposite efffhotue rule. In auy imperial parliament Canada would  be in a helpless minority aud yet  would have tn submit to the majority and would have to pay any  taxes levied.  There is a great difference of  opinion throughout Canada on  thc question of the navy and of  imperial defence. Under Mr.  O'Connor's proposal these questions would be decided for us by  the imperial .parliament.  Eet Canada never part with  her autonomy in all matters  Canadian, including imperial.defence, or else! trouble will come  sooner or later and we will have  the old fight, over again of the  colony, againsf. Downing street.  What would Canada gain by  having representatives at Westminster IIall?i More knighthoods,  and perhaps sjune peers and uoth-  ing else. In return we would  have lo give up our right to decide most Important questions for  ourselves. What would the empire gain from such a change?  Nothing but the onerous duty of  trying to settle colonial questions  without any proper knowledge of  the rea] feelings and wishes of  the-people iu the various colonies.  Hut it may be said that the  representatives of each colony  would keep thc imperial parliament properly informed. Not  while we have the kind of men  putting themselves forward for  public oflice to which we have  become accustomed in Canada  and not until graft had been got  rid of in the political field.���Joseph Martin iu the Vancouver  News-Advertiser, Oct. 19.  Not Sisters  The   essential    difference   between   city government  by  commission and by hoard   of  control  is that the latter  has greater responsibility to the people.   There  is a good  deal  to be said  for an  independent  and   even an  autocratic   administration,   both   for  cities aud countries.    A wise and  benevolent  dispotism   may   give  the best possible  material results  for what it  costs, while  it saves  the people the   trouble of considering and determining  any public  questions.    Thus one  writes  to say that the board of  control  method is unsatisfactory because  the  controller  could  do nothing  without going to  thc couucil for  permission to expend money.   To  most   advocates   of    responsible  government this is not an objection.    Do the people wish to give  either commissioners or  controllers   indefinite   power   to   spend  money?    The power is not given  to the government  of  Canada or  ot Great   Britain or   the   United  States, or even of Germany. The  power of   the   purse in   national  affairs remains  with parliament,  and usually with the elected representatives   of   the  people.    It  may be found that a  large board  of alderman is  not  the best  authority to carry  out  the   details  of the business of  a city.    But it  is a quite  different   thing   to say  that   the elected   representatives  of  the   people   should   deleimiue  how   the  city revenue   should be  raised and give the authority for  the expenditure.

C. for adjustment  of the land register*/ ofllces the  Kamloops standard says editorially:  "Every little hole and corner  in the interior is howling- for a  registery ollice, and the excuse  for the howl seems to be that the  Kamloops register*/ oflice is three  months behind with the work.  If some of those who are un-  reasonahlc asking for the establishment of new offices were compelled to do busiuess in Vancouver, where tliey are over a year  behind, or in an*/ other offices  where they are from five to seven  months behind, thoy might haye  .some reason for tlieir kick. As it  is, the Kamloops oflice, badly unmanned as it is, has kept nearer  n*p~tcrdate than any of the others  in the province. The trouble  simply lies in the system itself,  which is bound to cause delays  whenever   there  is   an   unusual  rush of business."  We do not know anything  about the condition of affairs in  the registery office in Kamloops,  although the Standard seems to  admit, that there is cause for  complaint there, but there is  never smoke without fire aud the  complaints of the provincial are  fully justified. As we said before we do no know what Kamloops is doing, hut of all the holes  and corners who have registery  offices were to carry out their  work in a business like manner,  there would probably be nothing  to complain of. As for the system causing delays if that is so,  then those responsible for it  Hhould see that it is put right.

If you spend a dollar in your  own town, part of it, assuming  that you are engaged in business,  finds a path back to your individual coffers. If you send a dollar to other sections, all of it is  apt to stay there. You have depleted to that extent your community's working capital.  A stream of money Hows daily  from British Columbia into the  United States, This, of course,  has a weakening effect upon local  finance and commerce. The outgo means less capital here for  business.  Each of us whose fortunes depend upon those of British Columbia, owes it to himself to exert an influence toward keeping  more of this money where it will  stimulate our own industries. If  you are makiug a purchase and  there is little choice between the  goods or articles, let vour decision be in favor of the product  which is adding to the home  wealth, rather than to that of  manufacturers at a disimice. You  may regard as unimportant your  own influence in this matter of  buving, feeling that "ynu are ouly  an individual among many thousands, but you can help. There  are great manufacturing possi-  bilites in liritish Columbia, and  development means, of course,  bigger and richer cities, more  opportunities and more money  for all who are industrious.

Moblrcal  LORD HIQUHT STEPHEN  The Career of a Great Canadian  The greatest philanthropist of Canada is Lord Mount Stephen; the  greatest benefactor of the United Stales is Andrew Carnegie��� hoih men who  came to the new-world as poor hoys from tin* east of Scotland, have mad':  great fortunes and have spread with lavish hand their accumulated wealth.  When George Stephen, the son of a poor carpenter in the srna!i Scotch  village of Dufftown was born in 1829. the outlook for a great success seemed  surely dim and improbable. When, after completing the course at ihe little  parish school he undertook to earn his living as herd-hoy on the minister'-;  farm in the glen, no vision came to him of the time when he would be known  as a Lord, high in the councils of State, the friend of the King and the benefactor of his people. Then came an uncontrollable desire to see the larger  world, and as an apprentice in the drapery trade, ho went to Aberdeen, and  later to Glasgow and London. In 1850 he left England for Canada, where  he engaged in the woolen business, and in a few years was well on the high  road to prosperity.  In Canada he found his cousin, Donald Smith, later Lord Strathcona. and  the two Highlanders who had played together as boys, joined issues, and .-������ruin.  like the meeting of two brooks, their united efforts flowed in one chniinel.  Both were directors in the Hank of Montreal, both are interested lit r.-ii ways.  and both have achieved fame as philanthropists, statesmen, art coiuiiii-v.eur--  and in diplomatic circles. In 187.ri Lord Mount Stephen joined a syndii-a'-  for purchasing the bonds of the Dutch stockholder.-- nr the St. I'aul and Pacific Railroad, which, when completed, controlled the Northwest nf Canada.  When British Columbia entered the Dominion il was '.villi tin* understanding that the Government would build a railroad across the r-mtincnt.  The Government failed sadly in its plans; in 1SS0. one year before the entire road should have been ready, only 700 of its nearly ''.ihm'i mi Irs *v :e  pleted. Chaos prevailed and collapse was imminent. Then  Stephen and Sfr:Uh<-ona came forward and for a subsidy of $l'  title to the section already built,  and  a  land  grant   of twenty-!  acres a territory as large as Ireland and Wales���they prorni  two ocean? within eleven  years.    They accomplished  thu task  Mount Stephen  was made a. baronet  in 1SS6 and five years laler v : ���-  to tbe peerage with his present title, which  was taken from a mon.*::;;.'  the railroad that his energy  and enterprise helped to create.

The wide opening saves you work,  because you can use wood that you would have to saw and  split to get through the narrow, shallow fire-box openings of  ordinary wood furnaces.  Instead of making the fuel  fit the door, the Magnet  door is made to fit the fuel.  It is just as easy to get  the ashes out of a Magnet  as it is to put fuel in;  because the opening of the  ashpit is just as generous  as the fire-box opening.  You can get at the farthest corner and remove the  ashes with ease and speed  ���no turning and twisting; no trouble nor inconvenience. These two advantages are good reasons  why you ought to use a  Magnet. The McClary  agent in the nearest town  will welcome the chance  to give you many more.
