He had not expected  a* reception like this, and it surprised  him, to see this uncompromising dignity in May's manner.      Perhaps she  had  never been    more    alluring    or  more attractive in his eyes than she  was at that particular moment, and  he knew,  too,    without    any    words  from her, that he was on the eve of  defeat.

His heart leaped  t  There ia an  excellent reason why  Dr. Willl'ims' Pink Pills have cured  the most severe cases of    neuralgia,  sciatica and other complaints in the  group known    as disorders    of    the  nerves.     This group also includes St.  Vitus Dance, partial paralysis aud the  Common state of extreme nervousness  and excitability.     Each of these complaints exist because  there is something   the   matters with   the   nervous  system.     if the nerves have tone and  are strong and healthy you will not  have any of these    complaints.    The  reason why Dr-.-Williams'?-Pink Fills  cure nervous disorders  is,  that they  restore   werk,   run   down   nerves   to  their proper state of tone.     They act  both  '" irectly- upon the blood  supply  and the nerves.      The highest medical authorises have noted that nervous troubles generally attack people  -���������Who   are   bloodless     and     that     the  nerves are toned  when the blood is  renewed.      It is thus  seen that Dr.  Williams'   Pink   Pillls   cure   nervous  disorders by curing the cause of the  troubk.      The following    is    an    instance.      Miss Annie Jones, London,  Ont.. sSys:���������"Por over a year I was  an intense sunerer    from    neuralgia,  which located in my face and head.  The pain at times was so intense that  I could scarcely keep from.screaming,  and nothing I was doing for the trou-  *ble  seemed   to help   me.      As  time  went  on   my   whole   nervous   system  was affected.      At last when I  felt  that my case was almost hopeless I  was advised to try Dr. .Williams' Pink  Pills.      The result of this treatment  was that I am   now    enjoying   such  comfort as I had not known for years,  and only those   who    have    suffered  from neuralgic pains can realize what  a blessing the Pills have been to me."  if you are suffering from any blood  or nervous disorder    begin    to    cure  ���������yourse'f to-day   with    Dr.    Williams*  Pink Pills, which you can get froni  any medicine dealer or by mail at 50  cents  a  box or  six   boxes  for  $2.50  from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.;  Brockville,'Ont.  Arsenic as Widely Used in India as  in Ancient Rome  Arsenic is commonly employed by  the professional poisoner in India,  who will poison a whole family to  make sure of one victim. The reports of the Bombay Government an-  j alyst throws some light on the methods. The poison Is usually given in  sweetmeats, and generally by a  strange woman who has been met In  the street, and who mysteriously disappears. This strange woman is  found ln every analyst's report for  the last twenty years, and in circumstances so identical that it would almost seem to be the same person.  Will 'this elu?ive person pvpr be captured by the Indian police?

My father  iiaii Lulu me quilt- plainly, trVeii brutally, that unless I make this sacrifice I am no longer to consider myself  as his daughter.

Snakes and    Sense  Ever since the serpent in tbe Garden of Eden double-crossed Eve, the  sons of men have been swatting the  snake. -  But now appears Prof? H. D-  Bailey of Muhlenberg College in Pennsylvania with a word directed especially to farmers. Ke urges farmers  to desist from indiscriminate snake  swattving. What is more, the profess-  dr wants to put some of the snakes  into the song-bird class, which is to  say, he wants them protected' by legislation because of their co-operation  with mankind in warfare on pests  detrimental to man's agricultural purposes.  Here Is a list of the professor's  special privilege? snake family; king  snake, milk snake, bull snake, fox  snake indl0-������ snake corn snake- and  common garter snake. We have the  professor's word for it, that these  snakes are harmless to mankind, and  are really benefactors because they  destroy rodents and many insects.  As a matter of actual scientific fact,  there are very few venomous snakes  in North America, but there is a terrific aversion and prejudice among  normal persona against the whole  snake kingdom. What Prof. Bailey  says is doubtless very well founded  on commonsense. It may be practical absurdity, to swat a friend, even  if it bu u auukts. NeveriheloHH wo  doubt very much whether legislation  would be successful in removing so  universal a prejudice.

It is a well known fact that ground  j which is kept loose on top will evaporate much less water than a soil  which is packed on top. The moisture which escapes into the air is  absolutely lost so far as the plants  growing in that particular field are  concerned, aad if anything can be  done to hold this moisture in the  ground so that it may reach the roots  of the growing crop, it is of course  the thing to strive for, and will prove  a benefit to the plant growing in the  field.  Soiu*? years ago one of the representatives from "the Agricultural College was visiting an up-to-date fainter in the country, and the farmer  showed him a field of wheat which  iiluatrated this harrowing in a remarkable manner.  A storm had passed over that section of the country and about one and  a half inches of rain had fallen. 'It  had been a dashing shower and had  packed the surface of the ground con-  s'derabiy. The grain was from four  to six inches high, and the farmer  had been advised to harrow the ground  to prevent evaporation.

flow it Will Increase the Car
Prom time to time the grain grow
ers of Western Canada are faced with
problems affecting the disposal of the
products of their labor; questions
that require the most careful consideration. ' To come to a satisfactory
conclusion on these vexing problems
demands a thorough investigation of
811 the possible results which would
arise from the adoption of the proposals made. To often the actual
results of the operation..' of the proposed schemes are obsured by'parties-
interested in securing pecuniary advantages.
Such a scheme is the one now before the Western grain growers, in
which an effort is being made to establish a sample market for the
handling of grain. The imaginary
benefits of such a market are extolled
while the injuries that would result
from it are utterly ignored. Chief
among the faults that may be found
with the proposed scheme is the
greater length of time which would
be consumed in conveying the grains
from the point of shipment to the lake
Every farmer knows the value of
the rapid? transit of' grain from the
farm to the market. The present
*-***v ^renr* one ond of the countrv to
the other is that the railways are too
���slow i.- moving the crop. There are
too few cars and insufficient motive
power. ^ And yet the establishment
of a sample market would further
lepgthtn the time of transit and les-
���sen the abilities oi the railways to
handle the crop.
Next fall, one of the railways will
be hauling into Winnipeg at least 500
carloads of grain every day. Should
a sample market be established the
grain would be sold by separate carloads en sample, and ordered out on
time. The whole railway' yard cannot be switched to pick out a particular car as each order is received, so
that there will have io be a rule to
start switching cars every night after
five o'clock. This means, therefore,
that a car of grain reaching Winnipeg

-There is no doubt that some rough
form of surgery must have existed
from very ancient times, but, it is
strange to find that so complex and
delicate an operation as trepanning
is one or the oldest.
So far as actual report go, Hippocrates gives the earliest account. He
wrote treatises on fractures, dislocations, and wounds of the head, ih
which he described the method of procedure to be followed in case of a
fractured skull. His direction was
to> cut away a piece of bone, so that
the pressure on the brain might be
There are also records about this

this purpose, which at a time when
anaesthetics were undreamed of, must
have been, to say the least, painful.
According to Dr. T. Rice Holmes,
the operation of removing tho pieces
of bone was performed long before
historic times. The effects on the
skull r re easily seen after death, and
are visible so long as the bones are

Beven, or roughly speaking, the transportation facilities of the railways of

Then, taking Into consideration the

to the hold uo at Winnipeg over Sunday, It Is not an exaggeration to say
that the power of tbe railways to

To Remove Dust From the Eyes
Small substances like cinder dust,
small chips of stone or metal can usually be removed from the eye by
simplo methods. If the common
way of catching the upper lid by the
lashes and pulling it away from the
eyeball and down over the lower lid
does not result in dislodging the particle, try this:
Make a loop of horsehair and pass
it under the lid. Sweep from the
outdown. This will usually clean the
eye. If it does not, the upper lid
must be turned inside out, which is
easy to do, and the particle, which
can be seen easily now, removed with
a soft handkerchief or piece of cotton.

Messrs. Hazen,  Doherty and Pelletier have left for  England on their Imperial mission.  They expect to be absent about two  months.  Ot most importance ' among the  questions' to be consid-red by tho  Canadian ministers in London is of  course tbe problem of Canada's cooperation in Imperial naval defence.  In t_is connection the premier and  his colleagues, it is understood, are  starting out with the intention of  dealing iu the conference with the  Imperial authorities only with the  broad lines as the fundamental basis  of the whole problem so that a carefully matured plan may be evolved  later. It is learned on good authority  that there is no expectation of evolving any detailed plan this summer  either for the creation of a Canadian  navy or for direct contrubution by  Canada of va** vessels to the Imper-  ieet.      The first issue to be set  tled according to the repeated state  ments of Premier Borden and Hon.  Messrs Monk, Hazea, Doherty, Pelletier and others of the ministers,  both in public and in private is the  qu^sHe . at autonomy.  The government is practically  committed t^ demanding-as a permanent basis for thej, Dominion's co-operation  in  Naval  defence, /represent  ation   on  an" Imperial council touching the issues of war or peace affecting the welfare of the Empire as a  whole.      Premier  Borden has explicitly stated his belief in the feasibility and necessity for the Dominions  if they are  lo  enter  upon a- astern  of naval  defence,   "having a greater  voice in  the councils of the Empire  than they have had in  past years."  Hon: Mr. Doherty,  who will  be with  the premier and Hon.  Mr.  Hazen  in  direct conference with the admiralty,  says: "The condition precedent to our  undertaking to p~:tieipate in the nav-*  ���������al defence of the Empire is that we  should be given an effective voice in  the governing and-, determining of the  foreign relations of the Empire." The  same   principle   has   be-m   practically  assorted by most of the other ministers.     It would, therefore, appear that  this   larger   principle   must   first   be  settled before Canada can expect any  tangible e^ort on the part of the government towards the establishment of  a  Canadian  navy or  towards  direct  contribution.  In   addition   to  the  naval  question  Several   Bridges   Have   Been   Burned  and     Thousands of Ties    Destroyed  Port William.���������Heports from-Super-  ior Junction state that great damage  has been done along the line of .the  National Transcontinental Railway  under construction east of that point  by forest fires which assumed serious  proportions on Monday and since then  have swept the northern country. Several bridges, it is said, have been destroyed and thousands of ties have  been burned*. The work of construction w^ll t>e held back for,some time  by the damage and ��������� loss of supplies.  The damage to the bridges and the  loss in ties alone is estimated at  nearly $100,000. Por two days the  contractors all along the line have  had their men at work fighting the  flames, but in spite of their efforts  lt, is said that at least one camp  was destroyed. So far no loss of  life has been reported. The camps  keep well in touch with any parties  in the bush and surveyors or prospectors who have been out are stated to  be safe.

The  unfavorable reception with which the  comparatively mild terms of supervision in tho case of previous advances were met, indicates the almost  .universal sentiment against such 'supervision. The government officials  however, are confident that some arrangement will be reached, as there  is need of funds, particularly for the  payment of the troop's.

During the last eleven and three-  quarter years, 2,118,712 immigrants  have come to Canada, apportioned as  follows:  Maritime provinces, 89,474; Quebec  309,422; Ontario, 504,128; Manitoba  353,100; Alberta and Saskatchewan,  60S.965; British Columbia, 240,414;  not shown, 13,211.  Of these 823,188 were British, 752.-  120 were from the United States and  5*3,401 from continental countries.  During the fiscal year which ended  March 31 Ia3t, the immigration was  354,237 of which 138.121 was British.  133,710 from the United States and  82,4,08 from other countries.  Since December, 1902, when the  medical act went into force, 8,500  have been debarred at ocean ports;  the number in 1931-12 was 972. In  addition 5,626 have been deported  after being admitted; the number of  cases in 1911-12 was 959. Of these  227 were British and 124 Italians.  Inspection of Immigrants seeking  admission to Canada from the United  States was begun in April, 1908; rejected since that date have been:  1908-03, 4,580; 1S09-10, 8,SS7; 1910-  11, 15,404;   1911-12, .22.034.  During the fiscal year, bonus was  paid on 23,183 British immigrants, or  16-78 per cent; on 3,613 American  immigrants or 2.7 per cent.: and on  2.111 continental immigrants, or 2.56  per cent. Eight years ago the proportion was: British 18 per cent.,  America 8.3 per cent., Continental 31.8  per cent.  The expenditure durine 1911-12 was  $1,354,736.

This merry work of  Viennese melody and gay romance  has proven so charming that it has  successfully accomplished the remarkable feat of playing twice over  the length and breadth of America in  a single season ih response to the  demand for a second hearing.

The blockade is the worst ever experienced uud is i attributed directly  to the London dock workers' strike.  The Grand Trunk elevator, and the  ������levator of tin? harbor commissioners  are both filled to the limit of their  capacity, and there are not enough  ships to relieve them of the grain  stored in them. There is rid outlet, but through the inlet come lake  freighters, which* cannot be Unloaded.  There are at the present time five  large freighters lying in the harbor  basins.  So fullare the elevators that they  can do no more work. The sight of  a couple of floating elevators alongside the Tunisian and the Canada  olono would indicate trouble, for It  Is seldom that the ships take on what  is known as "floating grain," and that  is. take on grain directly from lako  .steamers by the aid of smnll floating  clovatprs.

June 19.���������The week under   review   has   oeen   une.ventiul   in  tne gram trade.     United States markets nave been working    lower,    the  eiosing prices to-d*?y ������oowine a dicD  of 2c to uc rrom wnere they were a,  week  ago.      Ihis   has   been   cancel  to a certain exLent by liquioattcn ;n  the July aeliverles owing to tn? ue-ir  approach of    delivery    day.        Then  again the  winter wheat area shows  considerable improvement, new wheat  has been received in St. Louis from  Texas and  Oklahoma,  which always  causes a bearish feeling at first. Tne  spring wheat crops in MinUesiota and  the Dakotas and Western Canada are  reported to be looking their, best at  present, but of course the most critical period has yet to be gone thru ���������&_..  The/decline from June to August is  on   the   average   heavy., ���������    Whatever  the  actual  outcome, ��������� the  scares' will  be frequent, and will'carry more or  less   weight with  the  general   trade.  Already there has been .some apprehension owing to the cold weather experienced during the; past'week. Saturday,  Sunday  and  Monday  of this  week were admitted to be the coldest  days ever known in the North-West  stateB and   Western Canada for  the  time of year,     in this connection the  Free Press states "Slight frosts were  reported from a few points, but the  very high winds prevented a general  freeze.      From Friday morning until  Tuesday morning the crop had no opportunity io iimko 'iimuti ui'o_i't'Hu. On  June  15th,  1911,  considerable  wheat  was reported, ln the shot blade. Now  It Is generally admitted that even with  favorable weather the crop will not  bo in tho shot blade before July 15th  and in a number of cases not before  July  20th?     As  It requires  from  n  month   to   five  wooks  of    fine    hot  weather, witli occasional showers, to  mature the crop after It le In tho shot  blado, those  conditions  lndlentn that  harvest  cannot, possibly   be   general  boforo August 20U> or possibly 23rd.  Should the season follow, the linos of  last year for July and August this will  moan   serious  dnmago  from  frost  to  large areas of the lato sown grain."  We do not wish to bo pessimistic, for  with tlie right kind of weather from  this out tho spring whoat crops will  nmlte  H.*io*oiiiibli������    progi'oRs,    ns    tho  whoat  plant   in  tho   North-wout has  rt'imirkabh*  recuperative  powers, but  It Is well to bortr In mind the abovo  facts  whon  considering crop    conditions.

Alta.���������The Panama Canal  conference, the centre of interest at  Calgary this week, is leading to the  tabulation of much important information bearing upon the present opportunity of the West, ������,nd especially of  Alberta-       The   Canal   will   mean   to  this province    in    freight    rates    for  grain at least 9 cents per bushel, to  say nothing of an all-year-round seaport.      In  the  meanwhile  it will   be  open to the wheat growers of Central  ������.nd Eastern Saskatchewan    to    shio  their  product   east  or  west  as  they  prefer.      Witli^ reference to the present situation a  well-known real estate man says: "As might be expected in view of the approaching completion  of a  great achievement, the  wail of the pessimist is heard ln tbe  land, mingled with the voices of those  who know the facts and who accordingly are inclined to takca somewhat  hopeful view of the situation.     Such  views I am content to pass along for  what they are worth.     Among those  familiar with the facts aB to the resources  and   transportation    requirements of the Canadian West, this haif-  brewed rhetoric and prattle as to impending    disasters    from      improved  transportatlo-n facilities will be taken  at its face value.      The conclusions  of  the   Calgary ^conference   will  be  worth attending to; and the combined  wisdom and judgment of the conferees will bring out a number of important aspects of the Panama situation that up to this moment we have  been  overlooking altogether.
