Joe Gpodman, a Oreston Indian, has  been creating quite a sensation among  the members of his tribe as weU as  among the residents of Port Hill the  past teyr days. It seems that Joe, who  is a bright young Indian about 21 years  of aee and who waB educated at the  Mission at Oreston, last Friday forged  the name of Father Beck to a $72 check  whioh he cashed at McOlure's store nt  Port Bill. This check was drawn on  a Spokane bank. He had another check  drawn, in the name of Glenn Wisler of  Oreston. for $162 which he tried ' o cash  an the store of' H. A. French at Port  Hill. When in Port Hill the young Indian told various stories, one to the  effect that he had a few days before had  a prize fight with j oung Wisler of Cres  ton and he, Joe, had won the gate receipts of $162.  Provincial Constable Gunn went to  Port Hill to inquire into the case for  while the crime was committed across  the lino he thought that possibly he  might obtain some evidence that might  be of rise to him' should a prosecution  later on be started on the Canadian side.  However Mr. McOiure doeB not want to  prosecute the case on either side of the  line as the Indians have agreed to refund the, money. The Indians will  however hold the offending red man a  prisoner and will punish him according  to the rules of  tribe.   It i<3 stated  that the punishment that the young  Indian will receive at the hands of his  own people will be that he will be tied  up with hay wire and left without food  for several days. Young Joe Goodman  heretofore has had a good reputation,  among his own people and his actions  in forging these ohecks has created great  consternation, among the -pecpi������ of his  tribe, who/ are nows compelled to come  forward arid make pood the niQuey he  had spenr'id Crescou and Grauuirfuk  Constable Gnnn informed the Indians  that should Joe Goodman be found  guilty of any other offenses in the near  future, tbis forgery case might be  brought up against him in addition to  any other offenses that he might be  charged with.  land in the whole of the Creston Valley,  owned by Messrs. G. and E. Oartwright  Of thia area fifteen aores have been  clearedand planted partly with potatoes  whilst 1100 frnit trees have also been  put in. The owners are proceeding io  clear up further acreage here, but clearing operations were temporarily suspended and on our arrival we fouad all  hands busy with ths important work cf  spraying the trees. This property v?ss  purchased by the present o .vners from  the Dan Babbit estate, since which time,  thanks to the energy displayed by the  new proprietors in clearing and improving same, the land has increased in  value some 200 per cent. The land  around Erickson is of the highest quality, being a deep rioh loamy soil, and the  Oartwright Ranch is a very valuable  property.  The district around Erickson has been  chosen by many of the more recent settlers in the Creston Valley as a location  for homes, and a typical new comer is  Mr. W. H. Kemp, who last year purchased some 22 acres, distant about half  a mile from the railway. Mr. Kemp  lired for many years on the prairie, but  he became tired of the bitter winters of  the Great Northwest and decided to  seek home and fortune in the famous  fruit country, and glorious climate, of  the Creston District.  Having installed his family in the  neat white house on his new property,  he at once oommenoed to dear up the  land, and has now 7 aores in good nhape  and ready for planting. 3 acres of this  are already under trees and Mr. Kemp  is arranging to ^anc out the remainder  with* Jonathan.   Wealthy and Spitzea-  thia garden ot Eden, Mr. Kemp has laid  well and truly the foundations of hi *  future prosperity, and in the years to  come, as the plans of the owner ore  realized, the Kemp home wiii take ite  place among the many beautiful country  mansions of the Creston District.  (To be continued)  Around the  Aoro nwrfclAa  IIMMUU  Daring ihe interval whilst  these are coming to the producing  stage, hetwill look for his profits t > care-  oucunibers. > MrVKemp has found the  climate and conditions at Greston admirably suited to the industry in whioh  he is engaged, and indeed ������o firm is his  faith in the iu tare ofthe fruit sndnstry,  that he has been instrumental in inducing several of his friends to take np land  in the vioinjty of Eriokson, and expeots  tbat ethers will shortly be following  their example,   By wise investment in  NO DANGER CF APPLE GLUT  The planting of apple orchards continues throughout the country, especially here in the if rigated west and only  the other day we were told of a Colorado Springs concern %��������� at is arranging to  pat est 13,000 trees en SCO asms ia San  Joan county, New Mexico, in the  spring time, says "Field aad Farm."  Years of continued high prices, netting  fortunes to the owners of producing  orchards and a good deal of hot aw land  boom has stimulated the plaaeing cf  apple tress- Thousands ef asrsa of aev,r  orchards are ooming into bearing every  year and likewise quite as many trees  SS0 falling into decay or are dag cat iu  the east so that the law of corapviisatioii.  keeps steadily on the job. Anxiety has-  been expressed that this enormous sadden expansion may produce a surplus of  apples and make the industry unprofitable. There are a number of reasons-  why this is a most unlikely contingeaor.  One is that only in exceptional seasons-  is a full orop grotf������ sh?cashc������t ths  United States. If this shonld happen,  it wonld effect that one year ouly. Another reason iB the continually expanding market. Every year tha peoplo  indulge more and more in tho luxuries  of life. Fruit, sugar and similiar commodities were luxuries, but a few years  ago in thousands of homes where they  are now necessities. Oor continually  ���������growing population serves to still farther inorease onr capacity for consumption. There are foreign markets as yet  untouched. Apples, such as grow here  in the5 west oost fifteen cents apiece in  the oity of Mexico,-aad a franc in Paris,,  and are seldom to be had at that prise.,  Writing of their success, hundreds bf  fruit growers, whose sales ars largely  local, cite instances where very niggardly buyers have bean transfos^aed into  lavish buyers by persistent offerings of  the choicest fruit.says "Canada Weekly  Frnit Grower." V Take this homo to  yourself and ponder on it as ���������sugges- -  rion for inortnwag jest o'sra profits,  remembering always how1 a������!s,?grs������tsr *  your own craving, is for loscions, welv  THERE'S A CHIEL AMONG YOU  T/WI.NQ NQT������������������( AND FAITH  HE'LL PRINT 'EM,  (Continued from last freek)  After saying gopdby to the Dnperry  Ranch and its energetic proprietor, we  kept -along the Erickson road, and driving through the Creston Lumber Company's yard with its pileB of out lumber,  drew up at tho Eriokson Hotel.   ,  Close to the hotol, and running on  onoh side of the O.P.R. parallel to the  high road, is o fine property consisting  of about 71 aores of the choioeat frnit  -I'^-JU-JlJ   J-fcv.. -  nww������������,-?,-Wpa9^������;J������A.r*  than for. tasteless, * carelessly selected  and shiftlessly grown frnit that actually -  offends the taste.

Would Be Back���������Anything Was' Liable to Happen.  In spite of whito hairs and snowy  moustache.] hia veyes f shone clear, and  ieen as in the days when on their  ceaseless vigilance depended the lives  of scores of passengers. As he reminisced to a reporter a far-away look  -came into those once watchful orbs.  and the old engineer imagined him-  .self as of yore, back at the throttle,  gazing out of the cab window at the  -twin ribbons of steel along whose  ������hining course the locomotive would  irush quivering like a living thing.  "Railroading. Ah! It has changed  is whole lot since I first started into  '������it as a call boy over half a century  ago in England. I got my first en-  jgine when I was only nineteen years  old." said the veteran with pardon-  table pride. "Then, soon afterwards.  'I emigrated to this country and joiri-  ���������ed the Grahd Trunk. There was no  istarting in as fireman in those days  ���������and working yourself up to engineer  as they do now. . No, sir, leastways  on the old Great Western. A man  had to know all about it before ever  the officials would allow him to take  a tram out.-  "They burnt peat in those days run-  ���������ning out of Montreal. That was back .  in '09," said the old railroader. "Some  of the officials had got hold of the  !big peat bogs around about the city,  iand they sold it to the oompany, and  tthe dirty stuff.was handed put to. us  ito fire with. Leaving St. Lambert,  'we had our tenders to load up with"  (this muddy fuel; but it didn't last  long.' You can bet the firemen knew  Iiow to get rid of it in a Jsurry. for  just as soon as the tender got partly  jempty we could load on coird wood.  'Ton should have seen the way they J  stamped that peat out by the car; '  load.    It lay so thick in places along j  Members of British  blouse Who Can  Write  and  Draw.

If Sir Herbert Maxwell had not  been heir to a title and large estates  there is little doubt that he would  have been more famous to-day by his  brush than by his clever pen. Forty  years ago he was one of the most  diligent and promising students at  South Kensington; f<5r seven years he  worked as hard at his painting, both  in oil and water color, as ii his living  depended on his skill; and many of  his canvases, chiefly landscapes, have  found places of honor on the walls  of the Scottish Academy.  .Sir Herbert's art covers a wido  range,    from     cartoons     worthy    of  SECRETS OF THE MINT  IS QUITE A DULL, SOBER PLACE  AFTER ALL.

A visit to the British Mint resulted  in disillusionment to a representative  of The London Express. The walls of  what he had in imagination pictured  aa a ������ort of Aladdin's palace he found  veiled with the whitewash of respectability, their dull, grey stone giving  no hint of the millions t..ey enshrine.  Childhood's idea of : the Mint workman, gloating over glistening gvihl,  with difficulty restraining his hand.-  ���������from -...ing his pockets with the  "saint-seducing" metal, proved a ridiculous dream. It was a case where  familiarity breeds contempt.  You  start  with  the  mennig. rcoms  ���������one  for  gold,   one  for   silver.    Tno  process  is very  similar ia  each.

The whole  thing caught fire. There was an  ���������awful blaze, and the windows of pas*-  ling cars were-cracked by the heat.  IBut that was the end of our troubfea.  iNo more peat was used, on the Grand r  Ttrunk. .'������������������'������������������������������������'""���������  It was"1 well oh into the seventies  hetorS. ��������� Canadian locomotives began  using coai to any extent. The years  "73 and '74 saw Its introduction, but  oi was not until about 'SO that it earns?  anto general use. Before that the  <nmbrous looking old wood-burner9  familiar oniy to the present generation from pictures, lugged the trains  ot box-like cars.  'Those wood-burners were all  icmokestack. and' thpy were a terror  ���������for puffing out hot cinders." said the  sold man. "That's why the Government mnde them put on those wire  ���������bonnets on top of the stacks. But  they were very serviceable little engines, too. though they only weighed  thirty-five tons. In those days each  engineer had to look after his own  locomotive and try; and- .keep it in  repair.' He? would get down out of the  cab and tighten up n nut or adjust a  bearing, and generally keep his eve  on the whole machine. You didn't  mee ony hammer marks on the wheels  in those dnya. If the1 big drivers  ���������bowed the least dint you, can bet  the engineer would hear nbout St.. We  were provided with lead hammers to  do our testing, so/that we wouldn't  nark things.,  "How did you oyer manage in the  days before the air-brake was invented?" asked the reporter.  "Oh, we did well enough. The engineer knew his crew, and .when ho  whistled 'on brakes,' the boys were  all ori the job. It certainly Bcems.  pretty crude compared with what we  have nowadays���������the running along  over the tops .,of moving cars,j, and  the twisting and turning of the old  'Armstrong' brakes on the platforms,  but we seemed to get along with it.

And there was lots of  freight- traffle over thnt line then,  too. Thnt was the great stoek route  from the American west. In those  days there were big herds of cattle  en the plains, and hundred** of train  loads used "to pan's ; through from  Detroit east."  Biit.if collisions were'1 few, aeci-  dents of . other 'rinds there wore  a-plenty. "The St.: Thomas division  was built in the early seventies,"  ���������aid my informant, "ond tho rond  was a sure enough rough one thon.  There was something running off the  track all tho time.

' waa  Lord Granby (now Duke of Rutland), who has an enormous collecr  tion of pictures of every conceivable  kind, painted as far apart as Khartoum and Canada.

The late Sir George Tre-  velyan wrote many very clever and  amusing verses, notably a fragment  after the manner of an. old Athenian  comedv. entitled "The Ladies in Parliament"; while that late king cf  good fellows. Sir William-Allan, was  far fonder of writing verses in his  beloved Scots dialect than he was cf  making speeches.  Mr. Timothy Sullivan, for ten years  an Irish member, produced hundreds  of poems, pleasant and musical, including a volume of prison poems,  written in Tullamore jail. And was  there ever a more amusing and modest versifier than &f "Wilfrid Lawson,  juggler in jingles and quips, whose  last volume, "Cartoons in Rhyme  and Line," "gave infinite delight to  his many friends, and was dedicated  to "the best of wives from the worst  of poets"?  . Birds of Great Price.  The British working-man has done  mbreAtHanA any other class to evoive  and perfect the varied types of the  canary. The largest specimens barely exceed one ounce in weight, yet  one breeder obtained $150 and $.?50  respectively for pairs of birds matched for breeding, which, in the latter  case, assuming the birds to, average  one ounce each in . weight, would  amount to $175 per ounce for live  canaries. Here one might ^think the  climax "\Wtts  reached.   Not  ?o!  This sum had been exactly doubled  previously by a Norwich firmjof breeders and dealers who disposed of a remarkably fine-crested canary, universally admitted the best of the breed  ever produced up to that time, tor  . $350. Tho same flrm bought another  notable crested canary for $100 from  a workingman fancier who had only  been; in the fancy a short time.  Perhaps one of the keenest speculations in bird-breeding was that of a  fancier who bought a Lancashire hen  canary for thirty shillings, and from  her bred several hundreds of pounds  worth of high-class crests.

Apples aro not dried in Great Britain, and. tho British consumer docs  not use thom to any extent. The  dried apples which find their way into  the London market come from tho  United States and Canada, and aro  sold to cheap boarding houses, low-  priced hotels and to firms dealing  in ship'B stores. Ono dealer in this  commodity suggests that in on ordinary year London imports 60,000 to  00,000 boxes of dried applet at $0 to  $0.75 per box.

What I icated trade and commerce, arid per-  have to say on the subject has no re- haPS involving our political future,  ference to party politics (for I have  nothing to do with politics), nor to  any particular interests. I speak  only as an individual, who for the  past thirty years has' been working  heart and soul for the upbuilding of  this country, and one to whom the  great development of the past two decades has been a source of immense  pride and satisfaction. Y  To my nmuxement and distress and  shame I now sec the magnificent work  of  a  generation  traded   away  for    a  vague idea or a childish sentiment���������  the   splendid  commercial   and   industrial  position  we have  reached    and  our \!rroud independence bartered .*or  a few wormy plums, and 1 \feel it my  duty to join  in the protest which  is  heard from every section of the country.   Today   we   are   in   an   enviable  position, with a commerce three times  ns grout per capita as that of the United   States,   and  without  a   cloud   in  our sky save the one which has just  now been raised.   Does not common-  sense  tell  us  to  stay   where we ��������� arc  and let well enough alone?  Was Heavy Blow  The terminiation of the old reciprocity    arrangement    by    the    United  States  in  1886 was .a heavy blow to  Canada, and the fourteen years which  followed  were full  of trials and  despondency,  for    Canada then had no  west;   she  was  thrown  back  on  her  self by the Great Lakes, and she had  not in herself a great market for the  support of any    manufacturing    concern  of  any  consequences.   She    cut  her trees, and lived as best she could:  During    these    years    annexationists  were bred of hopelessness and many  good and honest people urged annexation as the only future open to   the  country.    Then came, in 1879, our national   policy,   and  factory   chimneys  began to appear above our tree tops  and  their number rapidly increased;  and then came the Canadian Pacific  railway'opening  up   our  great  west,  and from that time Canada advanced  by leaps and bounds.  The United States by the McKin-  ley tariff added brick upon brick to  her wall against us, but Canada prospered more and more. She was beginning- to find herself. Then came  the Dingley tariff, which crowned the  United States tariff wall with broken  crlpca     V*p+*-lac     orifl     ViorViorl     wire"      ortrl  then Canada quite found herself.  Hear what Senator . Beveridge, the  chief mouthpiece of the administration at Washington in the reciprocity  matter, says about this policy of his  government: "Not the Bourbons A of  Fraiice in the time of Louis XVI., not  the Tories of England in the period  of George III. ever insisted on a poi-  10CT0RS TEH  M DISEASES  v?  Serious   Consequences  A I refuse to believe that our honored  premier was a willing party tb what  has been dene; but whether he -"was or  was not, the certain .consequences to  the country are so serious as to quite  overshadow all personal .considerations and these consequences sbould  be averted somehow. Anyhow, the  well-being of the country and its self-  respect are at stake, und the shameful thing that is proposed is surely  against the wishes of four-fifths of its  people, and I doubt if it VwbuldYil  clearly understood, find a dozen supporters in the dominion. It is perhaps not possible to make a tariff  cjuite satisfactory to every community, every interest and every individual, but rightly considered, bur tariff  has come pretty near to this. Some  of the furmers in the Canadian north  west want reciprocity in the hope  that it will bring them better prices  for wheat and cheaper agricultural  implements. It will do neither to  any   appreciable   extent.  They should remember that our tariff wall has made them prosperous.  They have only to compare our exports of wheat and flour to foreign  markets with our total production of  wheat to realize the extent and value  of this home market. And as regards- to agricultural implements they  have only to compare the prices paid i  imrh*diately south of the boundary to  see that in most cases the American  manufacturer pays the duty and the  extra freight; and he dan do this because the cost of his works is only a  fraction of what the farmers pay.  nearly all the rest going to profit arid  to that of the middle man. Reducing the tariff will not cheapen the  implements; it will only add to the  American manufacturers* profit. But  if a comparison. is made with the  selling prices-south of the boundary  cash prices should be compared with  cash and not cash with credit prices.  Gain Very Slight  We are told that some farmers in  the maritime provinces favbr;<r-reci-  proeity in the expectation that it: will  bring better prices for their potatoes  and apples. All the possible gain in  that way may' be easily known by  looking at the prevailing pricesy of  these     things    in    the New England  One says, <4J have Great Faith ir*  Cuticura Remedies."

When she first applied the warm baths of Cuticura Soap ana  applications of Cuticura Ointment eho saw  s. decided improveraent and in a few days-*  ahe was completely cured.  "I lost no time in recommending the Cuti*  cura Remedies to Mr. , and this was-  two months ago.   I told him to wash with'  warm baths of the Cuticura Soap and to>  icv so blind sc foolish so ruinous ss  that so-called statesmanship which,  instead of fostering ;a purchasing; market in Canada is maKing Canada a  manufacturing competitor." And hear  Senator Beveridge again: "There must  be reciprocity with Canada. Our  tariff, with the rest of the world does  not apply to our northern neighbor.  That policy already has driven American manufacturers across the Canadian borders, built vast plants with  American capital on Canadian soil,  employing Canadian, workmen to supply  trade.  Keep; Capital at Home  "That capital should be kept a^  home to employ American working-  men to supply Canadian demand. We  should admit Canadian wood pulp  and Canadian paper freo in return for  Canada's admitting agricultural implements , our engines, pumps and  other machinery free. We should  freely admit. Canadian lumber to American planing mills in return for  Canada's freely admitting other American manufacturing products to  Canadian markets. '  "We should have a special' tariff arrangement with thiB intimate neighbor and natural customer. This would  mean millions of dollars profit every  year to Canada's factories. Becipro-  city would mean vast increases in  Canada's purchases from us."  As I said twenty years ago in  speaking of this same subject of reciprocity, it is not necessary that a  small boy should be a school boy to  know what all this means. And if  Indiana, which is a second rate state,  is to gain millions by reciprocity,  what millions must the great manufacturing states gainP and who would  pay all thoBo millions P Canada.  What olsop Tho othor day Mr. Field-  ing, in a cable meHaago to tho Canadian high commissioner in London,  said that for fifty years tho pooplo of  Canada, and both of its political parties had wished for reciprocity. That  was true of tho sixties and seventies,  but it has not been truo since. For  tho paHt twenty years wo havo heard  only an occiiRional whino from some  survivor of Canada's dark ago.

On   the     other    hahd,  there "are  easily   reached >arid  ample  markets   for  these   things7 where  the  farmer     of   .Nova    Scotia   and  New  Brunswick may with a little effort secure twice as much as they are now  getting  from  their  potatoes  and   apples, and at the same time .quadruple  the   demand  by   reducing.- ffie Apr ices  one-half to 'the consumer.   TakeyGuba  for instanceA where a barrel of potatoes yielding the Canadian farmer lh  cents reaches the consumer at seven  dollars,  and    so    with    apples.   The  Canadian trade commissioner: at Havana will verify this statement.      Our  farmers   count on ^exporting potatoes  and apples to the United States while  these same things are exported from  the United States to Cuba and    elsewhere.   Ontario  suffered  in her butter, eggs, cheese and such things until the Dingley    tariff    compelled    a  turn to other markets; which proved  to be more profitable. . Aside from the  fisheries,   of   which I   do   not know  enough to speak.   I do    not   believe  there is   any  industry  anywhere    in  Canada that cannot find a way to be  better  off without    reciprocity    than  with   it;   and   with   many   industries  the    question    is a    vital one.   And  even with our codfish, judging from  the prices to consumers in the West  Indies and Central America, it may  be well that we are, as with potatoes  and  apples,  overlooking  what might  easily he  made  our  very  best market.  ���������.*��������� ' .      .     ���������    ���������  ' Cannot Corroct it  Let us not run away with tho idea  that  if  we make  a  mistake  in this  matter of reciprocity we shall be able  to  correct  it  at  pleasure.

Good feed, good care and plenty of  exercise are absolutely necessary to  guarantee thrift and vigor to a sire.  One of the quickest and surest ways  to make the herd deteriorate is- to be  lax in attention to your,bull.    ,  Too Easy  "A tradition," explained the teacher,   "is   something    that    has    been  j handed down from father to son.

John A. Bruoe & Co., Ltd., Hamilton. Ontario  Himiwmm���������������  Brood  Sows.  Along ahout March and' April each  year the complaints are pretty general with many farmers ahout tough  luck they have had with their brood  sows���������small Titters and a lickly-look-  ing bunch of pigs.  The farmer then realizes his mistake in- not making the proper selection of-his brood sows before the winter began. He also figures that the  sire wasn't much good either. He  does not, however, figure that very  little bedding and damp floors had a  great deal to do with his present misfortune. Seldom do we ever count  our own errors, it is always the other  fellow's. As a matter of fact the damage in done, now to get on a good  permanent footing for the future.  In picking brood sows bear this in  mind:  Look for the past records���������1st, prolific;, 2nd, careful mothers; 3rd, good  sucklers, and pass up the closely built  gilts that are inclined to fatten.  Don't allow them to follow the cattle, they may get too fat.  Give them plenty of exercise, dry  bedding and ventilation. Flesh forming and not fat-producing food is  what they need.  Unless the sow ,is in good health  at farrowing time, she stands a  mighty poor chance of rearing a  bunch of healthy-pigs.  Shipping Dressed  Poultry.  After, the fowls have been dressed  and' are thoroughly cooled, they will  be roady for packing. Poultry  dressed for market should be kept off  feed at least 24 hours previous to  slaughter, and should be drawn before it is packed for shipment. The  action of the air on the inside of the  fowl will cause it to spoil, and make  it impossible to keep in good condition. * Use a flat box in which two  layers of poultry " can be packed.  Wrap the head of each bird in paper  so that any blood that may be left  in the head will not come in contact  with the body and soil it. In some  cases the whole bird is wrapped in  waxed paper.  Start .a layer in the bottom of the  box;, take each bird separately and  fold the head to one side, and place  it in the box with the head up. Continue in this way until tbe bottom  layer is filled. Put ihe upper layer  in the same way except that the head  is in the middle and the side of the  [box may be *opened when1 it reaches  the market and a nice uniform lot  ol poultry will meet the eyo o! the  purchaser.  The poultry may bo packed in barrels or larger boxes, ,but small flat  boxes are preferred, because they are  easier to handle- .tind there is. lean  danger of spoiling,while:/they;ore being; shipped. Ay Vy V.-���������.'���������'  XX-..    ,.';..; ;y  It is a, good plan to establish a  permanent trade with some commission firm, meat dealer, i or ��������� a large  hotel, to supply' them with poultry.

There is an excellent reason    why  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have cured  the  most  severe   cases  of  neuralgia,  sciatica, and other complaints in the  group* that are known as disorders'of  the, nerves.. This group also includes  St.' Vitus. _d.ance  and  paralysis, , ������.nd  the  common  state  of  extreme  nervousness    and excitability.      Each  of  these complaints exist because there  is    something    the  matter  with  the  nervous system.   "If the nerves have  tone���������are strong    and    healthy,    you  will not have any of these complaints.  The reason Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  cure  nervous  disorders   is' that "they  restore    weak,    run-down    nerves ,to  their proper state of tone.    They' act  both directly upon the nerves and on  the blood supply.. The -highest medical authorities have noted that 'nervous troubles generally, attack people  who arc bloodless and that the nerves  are toned when tho blood supply ls  renewed.    It is  thus   seen  that $r.  Williams' Pink ' Pills    cure   nervous  disorders by curing the cause of,%thc  trouble.  '  Mrs.  J.

Commencing ut a post planted about five  THB ECHO OF A CHINESE LEGEND  Now that the deal for the property has been completed,  and no harm can be done to an intending investor in Creston. there is no objection to stating facts, which have been  known to the proprietors of the Review for some time, but  which have not been published beiore for fear of preventing  the deal.  Some weeks ago there appeared in the columns of the  ^fickoy a statement in the form of a news item, to the effect  that a Chinaman hid purchased the lot next to the Review  office close to the C.P. R., on Wilson Avenue, for the purpose of erecting a laundry. This malicious lie was obviously  intended to knock the value of business town property on  Creston's foremost business street, to the disadvantage  of those including S. A. Speers, the Creston Drug & Book  Co., an4 other business men who have been enterprising  enough to invest hard cash in this locality.  Ths parties who circulated this story, do not themselves,  own a sinp-le foot of business orosertv in the town of Ores-  ton, whilst it is their constant and chief aim to discredit any  honest investor who shows his faith in the future of the town  by purchasing and improving property, and paying a hundred cents in the dollar.  Since the Creston Publishing Company purchased business property on Wilson Avenue, the value of the lots on  that street has increased aoo per cent, a lot which could have  been purchased for $200 is now listed at $600, and the new  and attractive buildings being built on these sites, together  with the improvements planned, wiil still further increase  ihe value of these properties.  The Chinaman who will build on the lot which the  3Sfiho had advertised as a laundry site, will be a white man  and a merchant, who will be a credit to the town. The meto  behind the Echo would do betterif they showed their faith in  Creston by investing money here themselves, instead of trying, from purely personal spite, to down the business men  who are making Creston into a city.  BOY SCOUTS TO CORONATION  Boy Scouts from the Overseas Dominions will have  official standing in the Coronation procession, although  provision had not at first been made for them. How detachments are to get to the old country and who is to pay the  expenses of the trip is another question. The Canadian  Century of Montreal is sending a squad of twenty, the boys  to be drawn from all parts of Canada, and it is not unlikely  that Colonel Sherwood and the Dominion Council will  arrange to send a second squad. Tne Century party will  sail on the Empress of Ireland with the Canadian Coronation  .Contingent of Canada's official delegation and will travel  , like real soldiers under transport of war conditions.  Work on the new Canadian Bank of Commerce building will be commenced early in April. A contract for the  gravel required for the cement basement has already been  allotted, Mr. H. McCreath being the fortunate successful  contractor, and the cbntract for the excavation will shortly  be let. The new building will be thoroughly up-to-date in  every respect. The size of the block will be approximately  40 feet by 60 feet, two storey. The cement basement will be  the first of its kind in Creston, whilst the upper storey will  be equipped as living rooms for the members of the clerical  staff of the bank. It ia anticipated that the building will he  completed by the middle of May. f  Mr. Glenn Wisler has completed his concrete work ou  Ihe new borne erected by Mr. Hockley, and will leave on  Monday for Settler.

The Irishman Had Him.  VJohn Tolmie, who represents North.  Bruce in the House of Comra'ons, tells  among his good  stories, of the time  when the joke was neatly turned ou  him.  An Irishman, who knew that Mr..  Tolmie was Scotch and that he had  Wa a politician for a great many  years, asked why it was that Scotchmen showed such great ability in*  opposite directions. "Scotchmen ar>*-  either preachers or politicians," said  the  irishman.  "The Irish are just as remarkablo."  said Mr. Tolmie. 'They are either  policemen or���������". The remainder of  the remark was drowned by the  laughter ot the listeners. V  At a gathering of the Bruce Old'  Boys' Association in which most ofi  the people were Scotch, Mr. Tolmie  told how he had got back at the Iri*h-  man. But ah Irish Old Efoy at the  sratheririgA turned th*> laugh on Mr.  Tolmie. Said the Irishmanr.- "I must  admit that it takes, about^- half the  Irish 'as policemen to keep the_ other  half out of jail, but Mr.. Tolmio  mustn't forget that it. takes half the  Scotch as preachers to keep the other  half out of Hades/'  l*An  i  GIN  PILLS  Brought Relief  "I suffered untold uiiseryA: even  when under treatment from the best  doctors for oyer ten months, and nothing seemed to do nib any good or  relieve my painful condition.

In politics as well aa in business it  is sometimes necessary to do thin?^  with a rather free hand, and it was  perhaps the lack of ability to so rise,  to the occasion that made a former  occupant of a Cabinet position in the  Ontario Legislature not altogether  suited to his position.  When this man-was appointed, a  newspaper man got from 'am some in.  formation for a write-up. The Minis,  tor was asked 'if he would like a few  copies of the paper in which the )  write-up. was to appeaT, and he said,'  "Yes, send me a dozen."  Tbe newspaperman ������aw the Minister a few days later and said: "T'v������  given you a pretty good show in thot  write-up. Don't you think* you ought  to get quite a number of papers and  send them to some bt' the country  editors?"  ' "It's a splendid idea." aaid the  MiniBter enthusiastically. "How  many papers did we arrange for you  to send me?"  "Oh, we said about a dozen."  "Well," said the Minister in a tone  indicating great decision, "send me  two dozen, and send the bill to me."  A Lucky Find.  Char'.es T. Currclly, the welHknown  Canadian archaeologist, tells of a curious piece of luck which befo'.l him  on  one  occasion.    Ho   waa   working  with a party of one hundred men on  the excavation of   a number  of  im-  portant tombs in Egypt, when a native came to him with tho story of  an interesting discovery some distance  away.   Leaving tho work on which he  was engaged, ho went to tho placo described by  tho nativ&,  only  to  find  that it was a wild-gooBe chnso.    On  th<������   way  bach,    however,    from  this  fruitless expedition he noticed a pile  of gravel which appeared to him to bo  ol   an   unnatural   arrangoment.     Ho  stopped and sunk a pit.   To hia aur>  prise  and  delight,  a tomb   was dis-  cf>ver������>d  which  proved  to bo that of  tho Pharaoh "which know not Jos-  cph."   Thia monarch had cnmplotely  hidden his  tomb, building  it in an  out-of-the-way placo, and like that of  tho   poorest   peasant;   underground,  however, a voritablo palaco had boon  constructed.

"1 stepped into *he elevator of  our apartment house this morning," she  tells me. "and found already there a  man and^ his wife who live upon the  floor above us. I know them by sight  as fellow-dwellers in the building, but  I have not so much as a speaking acquaintance with them. I bowed slightly in entering the elevator.-and the man  instantly removed his hat and kept it  off until we reached the lowest floor.  Then he-moved aside to let me pass out  of the elevator and himself walked out  next, leaving his wife to follow.  "That man is a highly respectable  lawyer and moves In excellent society.  He dresses and looks like a gentleman.  I forgot to say that he had an unlighted  cigar in his mouth when I first caught  sight of him, and he jerked It out as he  pulled off his hatl    The two walked up  th0 .5t5j������������k������-&h������t������u  of ������Ti6.     xx<3  SIOppcu  ut  ���������the first''corner to strike a match and  smoked, furiously .as far. as I could see  them, "the wlnd-biowlng the smoke right  into his wife's, face.  "The' incident set me to thinking. Is  there any reason why one should cease  to be a gentleman because he is mar-  Tied?"  X said:' "I once asked that question of  one of. the truest gentlemen ever made,  after witnessing a similar instance of  boorishness on the part of a husband.  Ke answered promptly and with a fine  disdain that did bim credit. 'If a man  has never been a gentleman until he is  married, then Is his opportunity <to make  himself one.' "  The hero of the elevator epieode was  probably assiduous in the practice of  loverly attentions during his courtship.  He, so -to speak, took off his hat whenever he thought of the girl he spent  months in convincing that she was an  angel and aU the rest of it. And, having  won her by courtesy and tender devotion, he shows her less respect in demeanor and speech than he manifests  toward strangers of her sex.  By one of the synchronized happenings we misname "coincidences," there  flashed into my mind while the girl  was still talking a message I had to  deliver to a Dusinees man, and with a  brief apolog,* I went to the telephone.  "Who wishes to sjeak to him?" asked  the clerk in the man's outer office, stationed there to protect his principal  from useless" interruptions. . ^  I gave my name. In perhaps three  minutes tiits *- person vvant^u 3������?g!^c ot  the other end of the wire. He is'the  pink of courtesy In society and to clients���������or so I thought���������and his' surly  response was a surprise. The "Well,  what is it?"  was very like a growl.  When I spoke I oould almost feel the  clearing of the atmosphere. Hie tone  was laughingly apologetic.  "Oh, is It you? I got the name wrong.  I thought It was my wife who called.  Names get queerly .mangled through the  receiver.   What ean I do for'you?"  I gave mv message, hung up the receiver, and faced my young friend with  a sad smile.  xa^avvw  "Hoses such as you used to send  her."  and  she is devoted to him.  rated as a model couple."  Neither of these men is a deliberate  deceiver. When they were in love, and  in hot pursjlt of the one woman upon  earth who, they fondly believed, could  make them perfectly happy, they were  In dead earnest. Every vow was sincere; the promises of future devotion  were honest.    Marriage was disillusion.  In his very clever novel, "The Married Life of the Frederic Carrolls,"  Jesse Lynch Williams says, among  other notable things, In dealing with  this inevitable disillusion:  "A mere boy and girl, carefully  trained to be uncongenial, utterly  unacquainted, but thinking they knew  each other well, because they had  Wanted each other so niuch. Did they  propose to keep on sighing and dying  for blisses and kisses? With the best  intentions, it is difficult to keep on  longing for what one already has."  When I read the extract to my  young visitor, she added sagely in up-  to-date prose:  "You   don't   run   after   a   street   car"  when you have caught it!" ,  Every word of all this is true. It  must be, or everybody would not be  so certain that courtship cr.c, .vcdiocK  ars two uttsr!v different states X did  not begin tliis plain talk with JohtfTwith  any hope of disproving the accepted  fact. What I am driving at is " to  plead for the wife's lawful rations  of gentle speech and civility. Being  loyal to the core of her heart, she  may never admit to herself thac you  have ceased, to respect her now that  you know her for what she Is. Still  less would she listen to the suggestion that the suitor played a part  systematically during the wooing and  the betrothal. She clings to her faith  in your nobility of spirit, your recti-  ..tudo and hjRh I'l^als. as she holds to  her existence. Sho turns a deaf ear to  the mass of evidence to tlie contrary  hurled at us by cynical bachelors,  divorced husbands and poets of every  age and degree.  When Tennyson says of the Locks-  ley Hall lover:  "He will hold thee, when his passion  shall have spent its novel force.  Something better than "his dog, a little dearw than his horse���������"  the woman into whose hands you have  committed the keeping of your name,  your honor and your house resents the  implication that her John is of the sam������  strain. When you snarl at her ovei  the telephone and uncover your handsome head co a wisp of a girl you chance  to encounter in the elevator, while yoi;  sit in your wife's parlor with your hat  on by the hour; when you find fault  with dinners of her cooking and ten  her, as I heard one man say to'the wife  who had been a bride eighteen months  before, that the gown selected with express reference to his taste "looks Mke  'the devil"; when day after day goes by  without a word of appreciation of her  continual efforts to j-erve and to please  you���������be sure she will excuse you to her  own oruised sensibilities and would fight  with her own mother were she to cen-.  sure you.  More than one of your friends has remarked upon the "quiet tastes Mary has  developed since her marriage. And  what a lively, flyaway girl she was!"  Do you tempt- her to be anything but  sedate, and aomestic?   You  come home,  tired,  Irritable  and hungry.     It  is  the  acknowledged duty of the wife to meet  you with a smile and to rack invention  for devices for cheating you into cheer-  f llness. How do you greet these fond  tricks?  "When    the    little   wife   laughs  and  makes cheer���������"  do you untie the knot in your forehead  and curve the straight line of the tight  lips? Do you recognize your favorite  dessert with a grateful smile at -the  head of the table?   Do you set the boys  " 'Oh, is it you ?   I thought it was  my wife.'"  an example of affectionate deference to  the pale woman, who. as one loving son'  told me of his invalid mother the other  day.   "J-Miq^e   whe-i   any  other woman  would   whine"?    She   slept   badly   last  night  and   had   a  headache xwhen   yotJ  went downtown after breakfast.   If you  had not been  so  absorbed in thought"  of the perplexities and cares that might  beset you in office or shop, you would  have noticed that she ate northing but a.  bit of toast and washed It down with a  cup of strong coffee.    If you had cast  your thoughts back to preceding days,  you  might have  recalled thai she had  the  very  slenderesit    of    appetites,   although   never   complaining.      Do   -you  gjess what it  would  have been to, tha  appetitDless   woman   to   receive   during  the day a piiimj* si*.1?*1 or tender hro!J<i'*  or  fresh sweetbread,  a basket of  fruit  or a box of roses such as you, used u������  send  to her every Saturday  when you.  were engaged; or a magazine or book  you   know  she   would  never  think   ot  buying fer herself?  Some writer, whose name deserves  to be recollected, tells what he caiia  "a pretty romance" of a gentleman,  of the old school, who mide It a point  always to cut out the tenderloin fro.nv  a steak afld send it to his wife at  the other end of the table before ha  helped anybody else.  I am proud to say that I know' ot  three households in which neither  father nor child ever draws up his or-  her chair to the table until the father*  himself, and in his absence one off  the boys, has seated the mother in her  place of honor. I remark- &&'* jk,  significant ������������������ If trifling ��������� circumstance,  that in none cf these homes has'the  mother ever' appeared en dishabille 9X.  breakfast, or failed to dress becomingly and carefully for dinner:. O&&  man, in commenting upon 'this/ said  that "for his part, he had no time for*  frills at, home. He was dog-tired- by  the time night came, and liked to  come to the table in his-shirtsleeves,  if he felt like it."  It never occurred to him to Inquire  how his wife liked the sight of a  sloven opposite to her, or what 'effect  his disregard of decencies ��������� alias  "frills"���������had   upon   growing   children.  If   catechized    upon    this    head,    be>  would   have   answered   that   hte  wife*  "was too sensible to care about show  ,. of any kind."  If this be true with her, she is th'e  one and only wife I have ever seen  who did not "care." It has been said  that we attach more importance to  keeping up appearances than men.

The Information you give Is wel- -  come In this day when prices are soaring high, and when the coBt of butter is  a considerable item to the frugal housewife.'  One reason your bread dries out Quickly Is because, you mix It with water instead of with milk. . The oily matter In  milk and In shortening���������be lt lard or  butter���������Is an effective agent in keeping  broad moist and freah. The fact that  many bakers put little or no shortening  Into their bread accounts for the fact  that the "baker's bread" of commerce  dries out so much more quioltly than  does the wholesome homemade loaf.  ������      Guava Jolly  "V, K.
