By this time "the shades of night  were falling fast," and it was with difficulty by the aid of match light, that  Salesman Lindlay read his monthly  report,, shewing gross sales of $3753 35,  and whioh was unanimously adopted.  r An application for membership from  a prominent Port Hill Rancher was declined on the grounds that the same  would conflict with the constitution and  understood practice of the B.

P. R. Station  Boy Ssont Camp,  y Aug. 171911  Monday's 12:25 train safely conveyed  our noisy crowd to Kitchener. There  were 16 boys and myself, since then two  more boys have joined us. From Kitohener to our camping ground Mr, Geo.  Hunt   kindly   packed   onr   tents and  blankets with his hone and the boys  packed the rest of the articles.   We had  a pretty heavy load but the boys performed tne'task nobly. ���������-.*��������� Soon after we  put up our tents we all went out fishing  for a little while and came in with about  40 fish which was soon put out of sight.  Since then they have been fishing some  every day with good, success.   Yesterday I took up six of each patrol; about 4  miles up the river to see. whioh patrol,  could catch the most fish the winning  side to get a box of chocolates,  in the  evening we counted them, Mr.  George  Broderick who was visiting us being the  scrutineer. The Wolves won out having  118 fish against 112 of Owels.   We were  thinking of sending some fish to Creston  but we have not decided to do so yet,we  don't want to spoil the business of the  Mercantile, Speers and Mr. Johnson,  to  say nothing of the bather, by putting a  hundred tons of fish more or less on  the market.   By the  way we wish to  thank the above firmsgor their kindness  and for their presents they gave to the  boys.   The only mistake I made before  we left Creston was, I did not ask Dr.'  Henderson to give me some prescription  to decrease the appetite of these boys.  Bit! I never saw anything like it.   Perhaps I have been setting a bad example,  Three of us, who wero late, coming in  last night, ato two loaves of bread after  eating some  other things.   I made a  mistake which I will not do again, I  mado the boys, make a table but no  seats, so they have been eating standing  and really I believe you can oonsume  twice as much food standiug than sittiug.   I believe it is choapor at tho end to  buy chain*    After this I will have more  sympathy with tho parents who havo 10  or twelve ohlldron.

KOOTENAY SOILS AWD  CULTIVATION  (Continued from last week)  A A close packed soil does not hold moisture like one that is opened up, yon  have a great deal of precipation in the  Winter, and your problem will be to  carry the moisture oyer. Soil which is  loosened will take in much more moisture^ When the rains come, have -your  soils open, aud in ia. receptive condition,  your soil should bein a spongy condition  and it will take in the winter moisture.  By Fall plowing, we have taken in three  inches more rainfall, on the plowed  ground, than was the case on adjoining  ground which we did not plow. ^ '  There are three factors in the holding  of water:���������   ���������-.  1. Having the soil' loose and open.  3. Having the soil in small particles  when the rains comes. 3 Plenty of  Humos. Those aria the vital factors in  holding moisture.  Ton can tide yourself over the whole  Season, .easily, by remembering the foregoing facts. You will find men, who  after a rain, will leave the soil packed  on the top, but I say, cultivate the sur-  tace of your soil, put a mulch on same  notioo fine, the Disc is a good machine  to put a mulch on tne surface, but avoid  using harrows whioh will make the soil  too fine. You cultivate after the rain  for the following rain, and to conserve  the moisture of the rain which has just  passed. If your soil is not in good con  dition, yon have no one to blame but  yourself, cultivation is the key note of  good soil condition. You must cultivate  and add humos to your soil, to put  uittogen.

PLATT, erop,  ���������**:���������  after plowing up virgin land, this is a  greats.nli3iS.ke, cultivation, and oxidisation, that is turning the soil up the air  and light, axe necessary. Instead -of  planting trees this spring,: turn ,up the  new soil and,cultivate all summer, and  put, your trees in the following year.  YoU will find you will be ahead in the  long run. If Clover will start in the fall  turn.it under nest spring, aud fallow it,  the soil needs oultivation as well as:  clover. , Put in Winter wheat in the fall  then the next Spring plow under, cultivate, and towards the latter part of the  dry Season you cau plow that uuder.  Grow something first like potatoes, that  require oultivation, and cultivate and  hoe. We havo proved that trees will  make thirty per cent better growth in  land whioh has been Summer fallowed,  aud will be so muoh more vigorous, that  they are greatly superior,;the evil effects  ^f new land show generally in the first  xfeat. _ ...   t..      ..      f ' '���������       "A''.

A great many of you men' here are on  the wrong side of the fence. You must  get busy, get up and get into the fields,  and stay��������� there regularly for a full working day.  You will have to get in and act as one  man, co-operate in buying as well as in  selling, and get the discounts, you are  depending too much upon the middle  man, who is on the,wrong side of the  fence so.far as you are concerned. You  must organize, and co-operate, and pass  around your ideas.  Do not jump at things too quickly,  nothing is definite and nothing is certain  For myself I firmly believe that what I  have told you is what the conditions are  today, but I am ready to change tomorrow if I can be shewn that what I have  said is wrong. Be prepared to change  tomorrow if it cau be shewn that wfi&t  I have said is wrong. Be prepared to  change if you find things are not right,  and be prepared to change now or at  any time. Get organized, read good  Agricultural papers, and books, and  make a business of your proposition.  Remember always, Gentlemen, that if  yon would make good on a 10 acre Fruit  Farm, you must WORK.

Kdith. wbo appeared to have been watohing for us.  "My   uncle   won't    have   me   near  him." she said, regarding Rouletabille  with an air of anxiety different from  anything 1 had ever noticed In ber be-  ''tore7'~*WsThc^ ��������� ���������  "Ah. madame." be replied, "i assure  you tbat nothing in the world is incomprehensible wben one is willing to  take a little trouble to understand it."  And be offered her bis congratulations  upon having had her uncle restored to  her at tbe moment when she was ready  to despair of ever seeing bim again.  Here we were joined by Prince Galitch. He had come to ask for news  of bis old friend Bub. of whose misfortune be had learned. Mme. Edith  reassured bim as to her uncle's condition and entreated the prince to pardon her relative for his too excessive  devotion to tbe "oldest skulls in the  history of humanity." The prince  smiled graciously and witb the utmost  kindliness wbeD be was told that Old  Bob had been attempting to steal his  skull.  Tbe prince asked for the details. He  eeemed very carious about the affair.  at tne ������dge off tho inner court like'two;  white statues. Rouieta bine was holding in his hand Arthur Ranee's Ivory  headed cane. Motioning with the cane,  he showed Darzac something on tbe  summit of the vault wbicb we could  not see. and then be pointed us out  in the same way. We could not hear  what be said. Tbe two talked togeth-  er for a few moments witb their lips  scarcely moving, like two accomplices  in some dark secret Mme. tOdith  paused, but Kouletabille beckoned to  her. repeating tbe signal witb bis  cane.  We went oo until we reached tbo  vault, and tbe others watched us witn-  out making a movement to meet us.  We had come up close to tbem by  this time, and tbey bade us turn  around with our backs toward the  court so that we could see what tbey  were looking at. There was on top  of the arch a stone, now loose, which  seemed in inimiuent danger of fulling  and crushing the heads of the passers-'  ���������"���������by:~~ ^twTtttet uWie asked"~M 'me. "Edith If  she bad any objections to its being  pulled down until it could be replaced  more solidly.  "A good idea." sbe answered.  Rouletabille handed the ivory beaded cane to i^ansuc. asking hint to perform the feat of dislodgiug the stone,  which was part of a carved escutcbeon,  the shield of the Mortoia.  "You are taller than I." he went on.  "See if you can reach it."  Darsae seized the stick. He stretched upward and struck with great vigor  at the object, which cluttered to the  ground.  Suddenly behind me 1 beard the cry  of a man in his dying agony.  We turned with one impulse, uttering an exclamation of horror.  We all stood tbere. shivering, our  eyes wide with horror. Who was  dead?   Wbat expiring breath had emit-  Rouletabille was  the  most terrified  of us all  the.garden  and  wbo  bad also beard j  tbe cry, rushed up.   He hurried behind  him.  and  Mme.  Edith  told  how  her uncle  had acknowledged to her thut be had  quitted tbe Fort of Hercules by way  of the air shaft wbich communicated  ^wi������b  the sea.    As soon as she said  this 1 recalled the experience of Ron- ���������  letabille witb tbe flasb of water and >  also the close iron bars, and the false- ���������  hoods which Old Bob bad uttered assumed gigantic proportions io my  - mind, and I was sure tbat the rest of  the party must hold the same opinion  as myself. Mme. Editb told us that  Tuilio bad been waiting with bis boat  at the opening of tbe gallery abutting  on tbe shaft to row the old savant to  the bank in front of tbe grotto of Romeo and Juliet  "Why so many twists and turnings | ^c i^^^  when it was so simple to go out by tb������ j     TbeQ hl8 head fe��������� bacfe  and he WM  gate?'   !   could   not   restrain   myself j dead>    Usrsan always, forever.

He moved about like a pig nosing its  nourishment out of the mire, and^we  all stood still, looking at bim curiously and half in alarm. Suddenly he  started to his feet, almost white with  dust; and uttered a shout of triumph  aa though be had found Larsan himself In the gravel. What new victory  did be feel tbat be bad achieved over  the. mystery?   .  "It's al! right, monsieur! Nothing  Is changed!"  Attracted by the sound of Voices, we  looked around and saw Pere Jacques  approaching, followed by two gendarmes, lt was tbe brigadier of La  Mortoia. who. summoned by. i'rlnce  Galitch. had hurried to the scene of  .theVcrime, '. . ..

Those who know the man and the  ���������system say that the letters G. M. attached to the front of Bosworth's  name will c-.-cntually be moved around  to the rear and be capitalized and enlarged into General Manager. However, that is in the future. At present the letters stand for George Morris, und are the front appendages ol  the name George Morns Bosworth,  vice-president of the Canadian Pacific  JRaihvny  Co. <  A while back GAM. Bos,worth waa  tourtti vice-president of the C.P.R.,  but a year ago the numerals were  abolished, and he is now known aa  vioprcsident, in eharge of the passenger and freight business and ocean  steamship lines. At first sight that  looks liko a big man's job, as it includes pretty nearly everything the  ordinary layman connects with a  transportation system. However, tha  C.P.R. is a big concern, and there are  still a few odd jobs which are attended to by others than G. M. Bosworth.  Still, he fills a big place among the  seventy-five thousand odd employes;  and. if rumors can be trusted, he is  destined to fill a still bigger place;  but more oi that anon. Bosworth  came to bat for the C.P.R. in 1882,  and has been knocking out home runs  and three-baggers ever since. He is  not a follower of sport; and would not  know an out-curve froni aii in-shoot.

No longer do they sweat in the fields,  of Canada instead of horses. Even as  their men are ceasing to be the wild  wanderers and fanatical spirit-wrestlers they were when they appeared  iu the northwest several years ago, so  Wc new world's environments have  drawn the women back from the brute  level, to which they had been degraded, to the home, with its cooking, its  spinning and its weaving ��������� old-time  tusks, it is true, but tasks adjusted to  their strength. ��������� '  The melting pot of this western  world has recast even the Doukhobors.  The colony boasts of a substantial  schoolhouse, Doukhobor teachers were  educated in the schools and returned  to impart the knowledge to their fellow-colonists.  Ridiculed by Canada the Doukhobors' pilgrimages in the dead of winter, through snow-covered roads to  meet their "Christ," made them the  laughing stock oi the.country. But  those crudities are things of the past;  they have become Canadianized in  the true sense of the word.  There are two colonies of Doukhobors in Canada ��������� Yorkton, containing  7,000 members, and Rosthorn, with  1,500. The Doukhobors'now use horses.  Formerly they believed it was unscrip-  tural to work these animals and the  women instead acted as beasts of burden. Eighteen of them were generally needed to take the place of a team.  The women now aTe engaged in the  uomestic arts and are magnificent embroiderers. Tae farmers are becoming  prosperous and many of them have  the latest farming machinery and the  best of live stock. Their objections to  the use of animals as servants oi mau  have  been overcome.  Sim i ut urn s fan Uu������������fs  PRINCESS VICTORIA OF GERMANY  A CHARMING GIRL  tbe last gasp of bis life.

In other words, he is a worker, and his success must be attributed  to long hours and steady application.  He was born in Ogdensburg in the  year 18S8, and is therefore another example of our free trade policy with the  United   States   in   the   matter  of  exchanging railroad men.   We have received  from the States  such  men  as  Van Home. Uiaughnessy, Hays, and  Bosworth, and have given them J. J.  H-i and a few others of lesser calibre.  Bosworth's  first  job   in   the   railroad  business netted $25 per month.   That  was away back in 1875. when ha was  of.   "i   boy   with   the   Ogdensburg   &,  Lake Champlain Railroad.   He moved  to Chicago as traffic freight agent of  the National Despatch Line, and came  to the C.P.R. in 1882 as assistant general freight agent of the Ontario and  Quebec Lines of the company.     Two  years later he was appointed general  freight  agent  of   lines   east  of   Fort  Atfilliam.    Then he became assistant  freight  traffic   manager,  and  in-1896  freight traffic manager of  the whole  syate'm.    In   1801 ' he   was   appointed  fourth vice-president of the company,  and in 1910 he became vice-president.  Mr. Bosworth has done almost everything around a railroad except run on  engine, and could probably do that if  occasion demanded it.    He has been  on the pay-roll of a railroad for over  thirty-six  years,  and  knows  exactly  how it feels to hear the 7 o'clock whistle   blow.    He  has   been   office  boy,  clerk, passenger agont, freight agent  and  assistant to fifty-seven varieties  of bossop, but always kent moving up  nearer thoso Initials of his. No doubt  he felt that those letters, G. M., in  front  ol  hia   name   looked  lonesome  there, and decided early in his career  that he would have a more symmetrical name if It read G. M. Bosworth,  G.M.   If his motivoB could have beon,  analysed there would have been found  an innate dcBlro to put those initials  where they belonged.   It has been a  big Job,  but unless his batting eyo  tails him he Ib apt to get thoro.   His  long   training,   especially    with   tho  O.P.R.. has beon invaluablo to hirn.  The O.P.R. is not only a tranBcon-  tlnental road, but it is also a transoceanic ntoamHhlp company, and Mr.  Bosworth haB to keep liis eyo on tho  Atlantic steamship boats, Uio paaBon-  gor and freight business from Halifax  to Vancouver, and tako an occasional  look at Uio Pacific.   Certainly a man  whosa  field  runs  trom  Liverpool  to  Hong Kong has to havo n. long arm  and a clear vision, and can't talco aU  day to decide a point. It's certainly a  big man's Job, and  one that is apt  to keep N the ordinary man awake *1  nighti gathering  up  tho  loose  ends  and  noeing that Uie  system doesn't  sag in tho middle.   However, G. M.  tBoiworUi l������ used to work, and takes  to It like thq proverbial duck to water, snd tliat reminds one that when  Mr. Bosworth finds things beginning  to, pall on him ho takes to the water.  Apart from hia work, and tho fun he  gets Irom It, "Quhin' " is the only re*  creation ho  ovor  takes.    Ha has  no  other hobbled.   Ho is not interested  in sport of any kind, is not In any  acute a club man. nor is h* a slave to  Uds of wur description.  Mr. Foy's Smoke.  It will be remembered that when  R. J. Fleming came out last autumn  with a new bunch of rules for tne  Street Railway Co. in Toronto, one of  them prohibited smoking on the cars.  Pchaps some of us might have objected more strenuously to this rule it  ii had not been for tne busy month  spent righting the pay-as-you-enter  system. When victory finally rested  with the citizens, we looked about and  found that no smoking was allowed  any more, even on tae rear platform  in the trailers. ,br on the three rear  seats of open cars.  It is said that the Attorney-General  was waning on tne corner recently for  a car, and as it did not show up for  ioum time, ne made tne time past!  pleasantly by lighting a cigar. It had  nardly stated to emit its pleasing  aroma when his car appeared on tbe  horizon. The member for South Toronto looked longingly at the fragrant  weed, and felt that he could not taruw  it away. He climbed upon the back  plattorm with the cigar he.a carefully  so as not to attract attention." Occasionally the conductor had' to depart  to collect fares, and with all the care  of a scnool boy eating candies during  school hours, the Attorney-General  t^-': long pulls at the cigar when the  man with the little coffee-pot was absent. Those who did not dare to break  the rule stood by and inhaled the  sweet breath of the Havana secondhand, or rather secorrd-mouth.  They evidently thought he had the  right to break the rule, for when ha  had  alighted,  one of  the  men asked  ���������The Young'Scion 6J Royalty, Who .'.!���������'.'

The Kaiserin, as are all German  princesses, is thoroughly domesticated ; therefore she has taken very good  care that her daughter has received a  similar course. A certain time each  and every day' has been spent in the-  acquisition of housewifely duties.

Particularly  would the results of the Beef Trust  regime be dire to Western Canada.  The history of the Beef Trust in the  United States law courts shows that  "the big six" packing companies of  Chicago have almost entire control of  the producing regions of the Western  States.  The United -States Beef Trust is  made up of the following firms: Armour & Co., Swift & Co.,, Morris &  Co., including the Fairbanks Canning  Co., ��������� the National Packing Company,  under the joint management' of Armours, Swifts and Morris'; Swarz-  child & Sulzberger and Cudahy &  Co. The main interests, "the big  six," as they are called, control 72  subsidiary packing companies, and  these 72 tantacles stretch over the  length and breadth* of the United  States, feeding on the fat of the land  and crushing out life wherever it is  convenient*. -        i  ��������� Nearly every t year the Beef.-Trust  is brought into court for breaking the  Sherman anti-trust aw.

In view of this indisputable evidence, it is not difficult to understand  the depleted condition of������the rural  districts of the Eastern States. Note  that 95 per cent, of the raw supply  in the West is killed by the Trust,  which also controls from 50 to 95 per  cent, of the meat trade in the large  eastern cities. The Beef Trust has  thus robbed the Eastern farmer of his  rightful heritage, the hi-flne market  in the adjacent large industrial centres. The west and the East have  been bound, together in .the tight  grasp of two tentacles, which have  shot out greedily from the huge central body at Chicago. If but another  tentacle could be extended northward  and coiled around the producing regions of Canada, what rich blood  could be sucked into the heart of  tbis massive creature.  The Beef Trust exerts its enormous  control by getting hold of the railroads and then monopolizing sources  of raw supply. President Riplejr, of  the Santa Fe Railroad, in 1905, before  the Insterstate Commerce Commission  said:, "The packing house business  today is concentrated in so few hands,  that this fact, together with the keen  competition, between railroads, practically! makes it possible for them to  dictate rates for dressed beef and  packing house products." .The Beef  Trust each day ships out of Chicago  600 cars of packing'''house*7 products.  Armours alone control over a dozen  car lines; they own over 14,000 refrigerator cars representing an investment of $14,000,000 and the owners of these cars besides enjoying  special rates, also draw'a'rental'from  the railroads for every one of these  cars than run over their lines. Swift  &.Co. for ,,the fiscal year ending  January, 1909, did $240,000,000 worth  of,business; , The largest Canadian  packing house does a business of  about $5,000,000 a year. Put both  concerns on a free market; would, it  be a fair deal?  Dressed meats and meat products of  different kinds came into Canada  from the United States last year,  ondiiig March, 1911, to the extent of  over $3,000,000. The groat proportion  of these imports came from the Beef  Trust nnd in face of, the duties." Reduce tho tariff on pocking houso products, as Reciprocity proposes to do,  and givo tho Beef Trust free access  to our. natural products, and you  simply ��������� perpetuate and aid a gross  evil as well as imperil tho best interests of" Canada.

Discharge    is    Checked ��������� Sores    are  Cleaned Out and Healed by  DR. CHASED OINTMENT  Aside from the suffering caused by  pimples, sores and skin eruptions,  there is the annoyance and embarrassment to which they give rise,  particularly when on, the hands or  face.  It is quite proper to try to get the  blood right by use of internal treatment, but this is a tedious method  of overcoming the skin troubles,  which can so readily be gotten rid of  fey. using JQr._ Chasers.-Qinbmmt.   The three principal ingredients of  this great soothing, healing ointment  are the most potent known to the  medical profession as a means of  cleaning out sores and ulcers, destroying morbid growth, lessening the discharge, preventing blood-poisoning  and stimulating the healing process.  Dr. Chase's Ointment stops itching  almost as soon as applied, and often  heals almost like magic.  The time required for cure depends  on the nature of the ailment but, unlike internal treatment, the benefits  are apparent to the eye, and you can  note from day to day the improvement made.  The wonderful success of Dr.  Chase's Ointment in the cure of eczema, salt rheum, psoriasis and old  sores and wounds is sufficient proof  that it is bound to be satisfactory  in the treatment of the less severe  diseases of the skin. 60 cents a box,  at all dealers, or Edmanson, Bates &  Co., Limited, Toronto, v Cample bo*  free 'if you mention, this paper.

Indian Princess Visited Coronation to  Pay Homage.  One of the most interesting women  in the world is in England at present,  where she visited the coronation. She  is the Begum of Bhopal, also styled  th' Sultan of *?hah Jehan, an aged  tiny native princess of India, who has  left her .ealm for tlie second time in  her life to i *y homage to the King of  England, who as Emperor of India is  h<?r Suzerain.  After arriving in London she was  ordered to Nauheim.���������Germany, for the  cure. but. becoming dissatisfied,1 she  vi\ s about to return to England when  he>' doctor firmly informed her she  must submit herself to the regimen  hi prescribed if she desired to" be  cured.  Neuther. the Begum's astrologer,  was taken aside by the physician in  London and warned that if she did not  submit to the cure she might drop off  any day. The astrologer threw his  -hrfhseirce on the side of the German  physician, and the Begum reluctantly  consented to remain and obey.  In India her Highness is one of the  great potentates, ior she is sovereign  over a million people, and the area of  her domain extends 7.000 square  miles.  Her Highness has the unique distinction of being the only woman ruler in the world to commanJ and ride  a* the head nf her own troops in action. She did this ten years ago. soon  after her accession, when she was  making a pilgrimage to Mecca, the  first time the had ever left her country. Although the journey was of a  religious character, the t.iaum was accompanied by a bodyguard of nearly  a t^ou^and nif*n. In crossing a desert  they were fiercely attacked by strong  bends of mounted Arabs. The Begum,  then fifty years of age, at once mounted a horse and .������e desert was treated  t<> the sight of a woman, with veil  drawn tig'ht about her fac3 ��������� which  had never been gazed upon by man���������  bi.t, with eyes blazing through peepholes in the mask, leading a victorious  oL^rge against the enemy.  King George has taken the keenest  interest in the Begum's work among  lur people, and in consequence she is  the only woman in the British Em-  PUS. to "wear 'Sfi o'raer of knighthood,  having been decorated with, the order,  oi Grand Commander of the Bljar of  India.   .  ��������� ."",   XhB "peculiar fact that the e?^n sj,  jihopal passes from mother te daligfiV  te? iiistead of from father to son���������the  ruler's husband being called a Nawab,  a male title she also bears herself���������  may account for the Begum's success,  ful innovations at Tiome.' At any rate  wonian suffrage advocates might well  cite her as an example of woman's  might.   "*'������������������*-'    ' *     ."���������.-..-.,*  Here are some of the things she has'  brought about in her portion of "unenlightened India": State railways  throughout the length and breadth ot  her domain, police in every community, hospitals in all the large citie3,  schools in every village. The hospi-  t:"j only use native medicines, which  are a part of the religious belief, but  in the City of Bhopal, the capital,  there are institutions where the sick  are hygienically .cared for.  In a^iition to affairs of state her  Highness has found time to get an  excellent knowledge of English and  other languages and to become a real  artist in oils and water color.  On arriving in England the Begum  established herself at the beautiful  estate of Patteson Court. Redhill,  Surrey, which she has leased for the  season. The next day sfc"^ had a private audience with King George and  Queen Mary in Buckingham Palace.  While the Bepum is in England her  observance of the purdah, or veiling  of,Jhe face, is as strict as in her own  cuntry, and as one of the royal guests  at,.the coronation she had a special  guard to prevent the scrutiny, of all  men. ,' Ax.���������.:-' '���������'��������� A"y {������������������������������������'���������  {  You wili find relief in Zam-Buk I  It eases ihe burning, atinfjfog  pain, steps bleeding and brings  ease.

For the information of all concerned, we publish herein  and by special request,   the  reasons  which   influenced  the  the Government to adopt this polury.  In our opinion, after every consideration is given to the  arguments as set forth, it must be admitted that in endeavoring to protect against destructive fires, the regulations  have been carried to an extreme which renders them unnecessarily burdensome to the producers on the land in thi?  and other districts.  The penalising of the whole community for the crimes  of one or twOj is a drastic step, and to endeavour to prevent  forest fires by stopping land clearing entirely, seems to be  bordering on the point when, the cure becomes worse than  the desease.  Doubtless the Government, who have done so much to  assist the fruitgrower, will take steps either by empowering  fire wardens to issue permit at discretion, or in some other  manner; to mitigate the hardships which the enforcement of  the present law, is inflicting upon our settlers.

James Fisher, Agent.  Dated June   10th,   1911.  The coal strike, which threatens to produce a fuel fam_  5ne in the North West, and has dislocated business throughout the Crow's nest towns for months past, drags wearily  filong. On the one side the miners, comparatively few in  number as compared with the Union to which they belong,  can exist on their strike pay and by the process of obtaining  work at the expense of the men usually employed in the  industries they invade; whilst the operators with capital  judiciously spread out in various fields in accordance with  Ihe rules which govern the investors in industries, can sit  back and draw their extra dividends from the Pennsylvania  Coal Companies, at the same time as the C, P. R. makes a  few extra dollars on the long haul from the Kast. The  middleman will make his extra cents by increasing coal  prices,l on account of the strike, sir,' and the whole cost of  the struggle falls upon the long suffering coal consumer.  Meantime the active parties in the dispute, owners and  miners, refuse even to state the definite grounds or demands  upon which each would settle; so far, neither the Union  nor the Operators have even made up their minds whether  the ' open ' or * closed ' shop is a vital factor which must be  conceeded.  Thus the strike continues, share speculators bang the'  markets, the shares in the various coal companies are forced  below par, and purchased by the parties who caused and  prolonged the strikt, the small shareholder is squeezed out.  All at once the strike is settled, the tired miners get a part  ���������>f their demands, these are met by an all round increase in  the price of coal, up go the shares and everyone shouts  * Hurrah.'  But the poor consumer scratches hie head and wonders  Jjovv he is done.

At cur next camping-place on the  Guaso Nyiro, in British East Africa,  our fisherman had a very narrow escape indeed, and aa all the oircum  stances connected with it were most  extraordinary and dramatic, I must  rclatts Uie entire adventure.  On this particular morning I happened to bo riding ahead of the "safari" on the look out for a suitable  camping place, when 1 suddenly came  upon an impala and, knowing that we  wero in want of some camp meat, I  iiU'dc a hasty shot at him as he fled  uway  through  the scrub. t   Ai7~h-tiiiet---str&^  hi in bond over heels, but before 1  could reach him he picked himself up  and made for the river. I fired again,  bat nut-sod, and then ran to the river  i-auk. fully expecting to see liim muk*  utg hid way across, but there was no  trace of him to be discovered anywhere. 1 was very much astonished at  this, ius 1 could not understand how a  beast wounded so badly could gel  away so quickly; but after-searching in  i-very direction 1 gave him up and  lunuvi my attention to the selection  of our campinq-ground, whioh 1 chose  close by, under the shade of some  large troes.  As s,oon as the tents were pitched,  Nyumbu went down to the river to fish  as usuul and was just about to step  off the bank on to what he took to be  a log, when the apparent log gave a  slight movement, and he saw that  it was the  back of a crocodile.  The man was luckily able to draw  back, and rushed up the slope, calling  Out. "Bwana. mamba, "mamba!"  ("Master a crocodile I a crocodile!").  We all happened to be close at hand,  so 1 seized my rifle and ran dowu to  the river, and, seeing the hideous creature's back close under the bank,  quickly put- a bullet into it.  Instantly there was a terrific heaving and writhing in the water, which  the reptile lashed about in all directions, ti-ough he seemed unable to get  away. Seeing this Abbudi ran down  to tae waters edge, stepped on to a  bough which projected out over the  river, and thrust his spear with all his  might deep into the creature's back.  The moment the crocodile felt the  steel he twisted himself round on his  tail with indescribable speed and vic-  iousness, snapped at the spear, whipped it clean out of Abbudi's hand, as  well as oui oi nis own back, and flung  it yards away to the bottom of the  river.  I never in all my life saw such an  astonished and crestfallen expression  Vas appeared on Abbudi's face, and indeed it wasmo wonder, ior the rapidity  with .which the brute had turned on  himvvwas incredible. His position was  nOw'highly dangerous, but before the  crocodile could whin round again to  makeV a- second grab, I put another  couple Of Abullets into his spine, thus  "rendering������������������ him quite helpless.  V. yin Vthe midst of all this excitement,  and while the crocodile was lashing  about, and snapping his vice-like  jaws, Mrs. B., forgetting that she was  still an invalid, jumped ��������� on to the  branch beside;Abbudi to get a better  vie.W bf what was going on. This was  a most unwise proceeding, but fortunately the reptile was too badly hit  to be able to do a^iy damage.  As soon a3 he was quite dead we  had a rope fastened round him, and  with the aid of a.dozen willing hands  hauled him up;:out .of the river. The  most extraordinary' part of the whole  occurrence then happened, for when  we opened him up we found inside  him the half of a freshly-eaten impala!  There was no doubt that it was the  one which I had shot, aaid which had  disappeared so mysteriously.after making its w������y to the river bank. It was  no wonder that I.could not find him,  as he must even then have been in  the maw of the crocodile, whioh. of  course, had caught him and dr'azsrod"  him under as soon as he attempted  to struggle across the stream.  After cons:uerubie trouoie Abbudi  recovered his spear from the river bod,  but found that the soft blade had been  bent almost to a right angle by the  crocodile when he grabbed it out of  his hand.���������-From "In tho Grip of the  Nyika," by Lieut-Col.

REVIEW.  y.  ���������'..'.   y  *^?/y-'  THE gentle art of aiding a poor,  weak memory over the difficult  places In everyday life is very  ������asy. Now, of course, psychologists tell  UB that the most effective way to  strengthen one's power to remember is  by exercising the faculty itself. There  are laws by which a systematic mem- ���������  crizatlon can take place. Association  by contrast, resemblance; contiguity of  time and place, etc., is the great keynote, But what are we to do when  -there Is an Isolated fact or experience  in our life that refuses to be classified  under any of these psychological heads?  Just exert your will, say the teachers,  and you will not forget; And then comes  the reply of a frantic, forgetful female,  "But Ido forget."  Here ara a few minor troubles due to  m. good forgetlery. They happen to  most of us. There are little ways to  circumvent a habit of forgetting.  There's the umbrella, for instance, that  (nestles In. the corner of the train seat  and continues to nestle after you have  left. Did you ever think of placing it on  the side near the ^ilsle? .is one facetious  ���������man: remarked, ''Break a leg, but don't  iorget the parasol!" His humor, boiled  down, really is true. You must pass the  umbrella on your way out, and it will  j-emind you of its presence.    Try it.  How many persons borrow small sums  of money in emergency cases and, from  the fact that they are small, forget to  return ;them? "Why didn't you tell me  that I had never returned you that dollar?" asks a friend. Is it not queer that  In'nine out of ten cases 'we feel a reticence about reminding the borrower?  Am a matter of fact, <a simple little  lilnt is very good. When you borrow 50  cents from your friend, w;rite on a slip  of paper or a card an "I. o. SO cents to  ������������������.. ���������-'' and place it In the purse that you  will use' the next day. Y-ou will find  ;   that lt works very well. .  When making engagements in the future, write the fact on a card and .slip  tt In the mirror of your dressing table.  Every one looks at the mirror, and  even at the last minute the gentle re  minder will stare you in the face. It ia  more apparent 'than* the engagement  book in your desk. .  A convenient telephone list is, a great ;  aid.   VFirst of all,  your friends' names,  must be kept i-n black and white.   Then  the call number of the doctor, the near-?  est *-fire -statlbn  and  police, station,   so  that when needed they will be at hand.,,  You object to this?��������� Why not refer to V  the book when in doubt?    Well, sometimes the book is not available or is'old.  Sometimes   your   maid   may   not   know V  the first name of a friend needed in a  hurry.   The book should be attached to  tbe   Instrument   and   always'   at   your V  service.  When reading a library book, use the  card for your marker.  "You will not let  the date of return pass without know- .  ing it.  These hints are intimately eonnectetl  with the facts to be remembered. Tljey  are much better than the tying of the  string on the finger, and forgetting  everything except the fact that it was a  reminder of something.

''Annie Laurie''  IT IS interesting to know the history  ot auineol our oldest and best-loved  bungs. "Annie Laurie," tor instance,  a universal favorite wherever English  is spoken, is founded on absolute truth.  This is the story:  Annie Laurie was the oldest of three  daughters of Sir Robert Laurie, of  Maxwellton, Scotland, she was born  December 16, 1682, and grew up a beauti-  'ful maiden, who was besieged���������in the  good old fashion���������by countless ardent  lovers. Among them was William  Douglass, of Kirkcudbright. Douglass  was a gay youth, hero of a Scotch song,  "Willie Was a Wanton Wag," which  sufficiently describes his character. He  was really in love with Annie, and  meant every word of tke poem he addressed to her, which was originally  much longer tha* we know It generally  today.  Unfortunately for the proper ending of  Ifiei/rribrette  diste  a romance, Annie did not, for some  reason, marry Douglass, biit, at the  age of 27, wedded James Fergusaon,: of  Craigdamich. How Douglass took the  blow we do not know.  The composer of the song hi unknown,  and the stanza begftnnmg  "Like the dew on the gowan lying  Is the fa* of her fairy feet,"  -was also added by an anonymous hand.  There is surely, however, enough real'  and   authenticated   romance   connected  wltb 'the song to' endear it to every  man and woman.

Occasionally medical or engineering,directions are given . in centigrade, and lt is then well to know how  to turn this into the system by which  our own thermometers are made.  The easiest method is to multiply the  centigrade-temperature by 2, deduct 1-10  of the product and add 32. Thus, 30 degrees centrlgrade multiplied by 2 equals  60; minus 1-10 of 60, or 6, equalp 64; plus  32 ��������� equals 86, the Fahrenheit temperature, This is a'method simple aud good  tb know in an'emergency.

Satisfying Pussy  EVERY one knows the love of a cat  for a particular place; and thia  ' love makes It very hard to per-  suade kittle to move when the family  does. A custom tried and found truo in  England is to destroy the keen scent  which leads the cat to return to the  old home, and which Is carried by the  feet, by rubbing all her paws well with  butter.  For the BOko- both of cleanllnoBs and  the butter, pussy will lick her pawB  clean, This, for Borne reaaon, takes  away the scent, and Bhe Is forever after  contented and happy���������until you move  aguln.

We   gather from   Mr. Edmondson's  letter that this Committee has collected  certain information, some of which, we  presume is published in the statement  of receipts and expenditures attached to  his letter, and we are also informed that  a petition is about to be circulated. But  apparently no public meeting is to be  called, to which the Ocmmittss c������S report, and no opportunity girea the ratepayers to consider the question in all its  bearings.   It may be "freedom in all its  beautiful comprehensiveness" to spring  this petition  on rate-payers who have  heard but one side of the question, but  it would look moro liko fair dealing to  give a hearing to everyone interested t  including these who are siot convinced  taac incorporation would be wise at the  present time.  The arguments which have been advanced in favor of the proposed munici-  here are First,  that it would result in  greatly increased prosperity.    Second,  th&t tha Provincial Government is collecting more from the District than it is  | expending in it.   Third,  that a muni  i oipality carries on   its business more  efficiently than the Provincial Government.   Fourth, that as a result of the  creation of a Royal Commission to investigate   assessments  the   Provincial  taxes will be largely increased in the  uear future,  which  increase   we  can  avoid by forming a municipality.   Fifth  chat tbe municipality can hold for all  time the power at Gnat River Oanyon,  *nd   other natural -monopolies within  its boundaries.   And Sixth and lastly  chat it is the finest flower of representative government, and something therefore desireable in itself, altogether apart  from any sordid material considerations.  Let ns consider theBe arguments in  turn.   The first iB a mere prophecy or  statement unsupported by any proof,  ind with just as much reason the very  -pposito statement could be made that  incorporation would result in hard times  and all round adversity.   Thero iB no  ueoromanoy in a municipality to bring  in wealth and population. Tho Province  is strewn    with      the      wrecks   of  of municipalities that have gone bankrupt.    The succobb or failure of any  glvon community does not depend on  whether it is incorporated or not, bnt  on its natural resources and tho character of its citizens.  In reply, to the second contention that  the Provinoial Government is collecting  moro from tho District than it is expending in it, wo would point oat that tho  statement of expenses no glvon by Mr  Edmondson is on its face inoomplote.  fn tho porlod covered by thia atatomont  from April 1st. 1900 to January 1st 1011  the Government has erected two now  settled slid enjoying municipal institutions, and oompure that with the work  the Government has done in this Distriot in the past few years.   Recall the  old, delapidated, unsanitary schools of  rural Ontario and tho starvation salaries paid to teaoheis.   Consider the rural  constibulary there, whioh is so useless  that the Ontario Government is considering the establishment of a Provinoial  Police. Then the lawsuits in whioh thay  needlessly get involved from time   to  time and othsr suoh ineptitudes.   Give  these things fair consideration, and we  think you will agree that our Provinoial  Government has no reason to fear a  ELlEM**-  rue  ������   Coldstream   Estate  ��������� Vernon, B.

Schofield a letter on the 4th of April last  pointing out that in the,estimates for  the year 19ir-1912 the proceeds of xthe  Real Property Tax for the whole Province was estimated at $325,000 00, and  if that is correct the Oreston District  taken as a whole is paying more than  its fair share, and ie assessed too high  as compared with the rest of the Pro  vince/  We are already tresspassing too much  on your space and will at Vpresent only  ask Mr. Edmonson how much the pro  posed Goat Biver Oanyon Power Worka  wonld cos v and where a market could  be found for the power when once it  was harnessed; In that coniiieation the  experience of NbIboq in disposing of itB  power to factories should make us  cautious. ;.-:'���������;���������"..*./'.'-'������������������������������������'���������'��������� ���������  ������As for the people who belaive in a  municipality on prinoiple, whether it  costs more or less/ we oan only say that  we do have a certain amount of representative government nnder., present  conditions, and the provincial-authori-  i io? do not turn a deaf ear to the expressed will of the people on any  question.
