Of this amount the small fruits: strawberries,  raspberries, gooseberries, blackberries, currants,  cherries,"peaches, and rhubarb amount to a total of  $8,255.00^ Plums and pears $1,280.00; Tomatoes $5,144.  00; Vegetables, including cucumbers, corn, peppers,  citron, squash, parsnips, pumpkin, celery, potatoes,  carrots, onions, peas, beans, lettuce and beets $2,000.00  Crabapples about $370.00 and Apples of grades Fancy,  No's, i, 2, and 3, $11,500:00.  The forecast, for the business of the Union in  1914 is that it will about double and when the new  warehouse become effective as a storage and packing  depot there is little question that the up-to-date ship,  per will see it to his advantage to cast iu his lot* with  the Union and get the best facilities for handling and  marketing his produce, as well as the best price that,  the market will afford.  But in addition to the business transacted by  the Fruit Growers Union there has been considerable  business done by the'House bf Quality under the able  management of A. Lindley.  From the first of June to the first of November  the House of Quality sold the fallowing:  Rhubarb 4*J_ tons; strawberries, raspberries,  black aud red currants, 4,375 cases; ripe tomatoes,  3,250 cases; green tomatoes 40 tons; apples, 2,500  boxes; pears, 175 boxes; plums, 500 cases; corn, 1,500  dozen; carrots, beets., turnips, and parsnips a total of 9  tons; cabbage 4 tons; cucumbers 600 cases and potatoes*  5otons. In addition to the above the House ot Quality  sold 19T2 goods in 1913 as follows: Potatoes, '200 tons;  other vegetables $250; apples $r,000.  The forecast   foi*  the House  of Quality during  1914 is that the busiuess will about double.  The Farmers Institute reports a most success-  presentand conducted the installation.

He ran down  the painted stairs and hurried through  the room? without looking to right or  !eft>- YTke?������ianb isept on and the men  at the tables were still engrossed with  their glasses and one another. Wardrop was very pale. He bolted into a  man at. the floor and pushed him aside  without? ceremony. -.  You? might go up now, Hunter said,  rising. : I -will see where the young  gentleinan is making for. Just open  the door of the different rooms upstairs, look around for Fleming, and  if any one notices you ask if M Hun-  tel- is there.     Tbat will let you out.  The third door I opened was that of  a dingy bathroom. Tbe nest, however  was different. Tbe light streamed out  through the transom as in the other  rooms, but there was no noise from  -within. With _y hand on the door, I  hesitated, then I opened it and looked  in.  A breath of cool night air from an  open window met me. There was no  noise, no rnioke, no sour odor of stale  beer. A table bad been drawn to tbe  centre of the small room and was lit-  tere_ with papers, pen and ink. At  one corner was a tray containing the  remnants of a '���������eal,-a pillow aud .a  pair of blankets on a couch at one side  showed the room lad been serving  a   a bedchamber.  At the table, leaning forward, his  head on his arms, was a mail. 1  coughed and receiving no answer,  stepped into the room.  I '-eg your pardon, I said, "but 1  am looking ������or���������  j table, lifting the blankets that had  | trailed off the couch ou to tho floor.  j Some one outside tried the doorknob  jand, finding the door locked, shook it  slightly.  Fleming! he called under his  breath,   Fleming*.  ' We were silent in response to a signal from''Hunter, and the steps retreated heavily down tht hall. The  detective spread tbe blankets decently  over the couch, -nd the three of us  moved the body there. Wardrop was  almost collapsing.  Now Hunter said quietly, what do  yon know about tkfo thing, Mr. Wardrop?  Wardrop looked dazed.  He was in a bad way when 1 left  this morning, he said huskily. There  isn't much uso now trying to bide  anything. God knows I've done all I  could. But he has been using cocaine for years, aud today he ran out  of the.stuff. When I got here about  half an hour ago he was on the verge  of killing himself. I got the revolver  from him He was like a crazy man,  and as soon as I dared to leave Uim  I went out to "try to find a doctor.  To get some cocaine?  Yes.  Not because lie was already wounded and you were afraid it was fatal?  What's the use of lying about it?  said Wardrop wearily. Yon won't believe me if 1 tell the truth, either, but  he was dead when I got here. I  heard something like the bang of! a  door as I went upstairs, but ihe noise  was terrific do wii below, and I couldn't  tell.

In action he certainly  is, as the late G. W. .Stevens put it,  'A brain working in a box of ice.' But  he can shed tears.  Once in the final Soudan Campaign  when sudden and torrential rains  swept away the labor of months, he  broke down, wept, and like Job, asked why he should be thus afflicted.  Again, in the final scene at Khartoum, when a thanksgiving service  was held, the tears rolled down his  face, and he Jruad*5 no effort to hide  them.  At the Durbar there appeared 200  old men, all that was left of the Sepoys wiio remained loyal in the Mutiny, to be reviewed by the Duke of  Connaught and the Viceroy. Lord  Kitchener, of course, was there, and  he gazed in silence at the line of  quavering veterans.  Tben he turned to a brother-officer  of high rank and said: I say. old chap,  let's give these men a cheer I All responded to the call, and a moment later it was seen that the tears wero  standing in Lord Kitchener's eyes.

Civilization brings a. host of diseases fn its train. The extremists of
the back-to-nature cry have gone stf
. tar as to declare that civilisation Is
I a disease. But it is only just beginning to be clearly perceived that
1 civilisation is its cvra disease, that
it preys upon itself, * and that the
aim of man is not to.be civilized, but
to fivoid being civilitzedtrKthough using to thejfull the opportunities that
civilization affords. Y?'

this quite clear. Measles is a definite germ disease. It is widely spread
over the earth, but not by any meanl*
iuhlversally Bpread; for example. It
seems to have been unknown among
the North American Indians prior to
the cominL of the Spaniards. As a
conseajipnee, when an epidemic of
measles strikes an Indian settlement
the mortality Is tremendous and in
some cases an entire village.has heen
swept away, every man, woman and ;
child perishing from measles. Yet,'
'among the white race, the disease
has been so prevalent that it has become one of the common maladies of
childhood and Is hardly dreaded
with regard to Its fatal effect.
The white race, therefore, by hay-'
ing had   theBe   diseases   for   many
thousand  years  has   built   up   an
organism that is almost immune, or
in other words it has perfected its
resistance to a. hostile environment.   |
Especially is ��� this    true    in   the
world of   work   and   thought.    Too
hard work is one of the diseases of
civilization.,  But the  very   fact   of
the compulsion of enduring life, although  working?too  hard,  lias enabled a man or a woman to endure
heavy toil   and   has   developed   the
human race to that extent.   Eight or
ten  hours  of  continuous  toll  to  a
race not accustomed to it would kill
it off speedily.    The   sama   is   true
about thinking.    The Bushman and
Negritoes, for   example, can -by   no
means   follow   a   conversation  with
each other for more than two min- ���

minutes of Questioning or attention i
in listening they fall to the ground
in sheer dizziness and weariness or.
go     temporarily     mad    under    the
strain.    Yet, under the force of poverty, faithfulness of duty, the desire
for fame or some such motive, men

.of order and thus receiving more thaa-
their due share of wear and tear.
ti The usual and most satisfactory
method is to do It with marking ink,
?sitber on the material Itself or on a
email piece of tape sewed on It. The
former Is preferable, as the mark
cannot be obliterated, whereas It is a
Simple matter for the tape to be removed and replaced by another piece
.with some one else's Initials. With certain; articles, such as stockings and
other garments the texture of which
will not permit of the use of ink, tape
must of course be used.
The place where the mark should
appear Is a matter, of individual taste,
but lt is most useful in that part which
can be most ^asily seen -when, the
article Is folded and put away. For
instance, sLocki_gs should be marked
at the inside of the top of the leg,
tablecloths on the under. side at the
corner, nightdresses at the bottom of
the front opening or at the Inside of
the back of the collar band.
Articles of a similar kind in use at
the same time should, in addition to
the Initials, be marked with numbers
as well. For instance, in the case of
handkerchiefs they should be marked ���
with the initials of the owner, under
which should be put lumbers 1, 2, 3,
and so on; the same with stockings,
nightdresses, serviettes,' tablecloths,
sheets and, In fact, everything that
can be> marked at all. They should
then be placed in the drawer or linen
cupboard, 'as. the ease may be, with
the numbers in consecutive "order. If
they aie then taken out for use In their
right order and replaced in the same"
manner after washing, one article will
not receive more than its fair share of
use. Thus, if handkerchiefs numbered
1 to 0' had been used and washed, they
ehould be replaced nnder those numbered 7 to? 12,ti so that they will not
be used again before the latter. Again,

order., .

Mr. Joseph Conrad was educated

made on an English trading vessel,
and in this manner he acquired a
knowledge ot the English language.
He stuck to the sea for many years,
and qualified as a master in 1884,
becoming at the same time a naturalized British subject. About ten
years later he wrote his first novel,
���"Almayer's Polly," and though tt did
not secure many readers, the literary critics were kind, and Mr. Conrad resolved to adopt writings as a

A Game That Xiasi_=
For the man who has once had
the responsibility of coaching an
eight-oared crew the task has an attraction which can't be resisted.
Some one asked_me once why it id
that most college crew coaches make
good, chess *Players. I knew that the
person?who put the question didn't
knowYinuch about the rowing game,
for Y producing a successful eight-
oared crew requires. an. amount of
thinking which makesi? chess seeni
like pure recreation?in comparison.
Of course it's different from? a chess
problem in the fact thai oppbiiehta
don't always start- with ths?"sacac
strength of forces, but this only adds
to the. fascination of trying to boat
a winning combination."
Hot?* Miicli Sleep Bo We Need?
How much sleep is necessary Cos
a man? The question was raised
centuries ago by Montaigne. ."Phisi-
tians," he wrote,: "may consider
Whether sleep be so necessarie that
our life must needs depend on It, for
we finde that Perseus, King ot
Macedon, prisoner at" Rome, being
kept from sleep, was made to die;
but Plinie alegeth that some have
lived a long time without any sleep
at all. And Herodotus reporteth
thero are nations where men sleep
and wake by halfe years. And those
that write the life of Eplmenidas the
wise affirm that he slept the continual space ot soven and fifty years."

Col. MacGregor Will Look Up Long
,  Neglected  Field.
About thirty-five years ago a party
of prospectors, while exploring the
north-western slope of the Rocky
3_ountains in British Columbia, came
upon promising indications in a secluded vaiiey, hidden in the depths
of what was then the great wilderness beyond the divide. They had
panned out gold along the Cariboo,
.and from there had pushed on in the
hope of finding new fields. They?
were interested for a time In a
gravel bank on a tributary of the
Omineca River, where one hundred
dollars a day were secured for every
man working on the bank.
Pushing on, the party came to the
valley in which they found most,
promising indications; but the season was far? advanced, the supplies
were running short, and the party
was obliged, to leave the valley before thoroughly testing its worth.
Keturning to camp, the men separated; and of that party, only one member is alive to-day���-Colonel Donald
MacGregor, of Williamstown, Glengarry, Ont. He knows the location
of the valley where gold was found,
but which was left- unexplored, and
he has now under consideration an
expedition to the distant place
among the still unexplored wilds of
the western slope of the Rockies.
Col. MacGregor was in British
Columbia in the early days when
gold mining outranked all other occupations, ana later, when the wealth
of the forests began, to be turned to
account. Much later, and when the
Klondike was the latest El DoTado,
he spent ten _years in the Yukon,
principally at uawson City, where he
was chairman of the celebrated Citl-

William Short, K.C, Mayor or Edmonton, will be remembered a very
long while as the man who, in 1902,
j became   for   three   successive   years
! mayor of what was then a fur town,
'and in 1912, becaue^rho had taken a
very live bull by the horns and suc-
icessfully got him ijornered, was re-
j elected chief magistrate of a city.   In
the eight years' that  William Short
w2s    a   private ..citizen.  Edmonton
changed   from a. clattering   fiirpost
town to an energizing young city ot
modern ideas and progressive business.    But it didn't succeed in outgrowing: W. B._ Short.   He was born
in Elora, studied law In Ontario, and
in 1894 was admitted to the Alberta
Bar���which was then about as serious as the bottom bar in a fence-gap.
Mere   legality   never   made 'W.   B.
Short the character he is to-day. - It
was the country and the town.  Short
was always a public citizen. He tooks
a keen interest In the civic and religious, and. educational affairs. He was
chairman of the Edmonton School
Board iii the last few years of the
19 th century.   He was Cleric of Ses
sions? or some such dignitary in the
zens* Committee that* brought about- Presbyterian Church. He was senior
reform in the   government   of   the   partner of the firm, Sh-xt and Cross,
famous mining camp. He now
thinks of making one more trip to
the West, revisiting the? valley found
many years ago, and robbing it of
the secret of its hidden wealth.

that of the god of the woods. :
An Infant was brought to the
church for christening, and the nam*,
proposed for it was Vanus. "Vanus?"*'
repeated the dean. "I suppose yox��,
mean Venus. Do you Imagine I art_|
going to call a Christian child by that,
name, and loast of all a male child?"
The father of the infant urged that
ho only wished to name it after his;
grandfather. "Your grand father \"\
eried the dean. "I don't believe It,
Whoro is your grandfather?" He waa
produced���a poor old soul of eighty
or no, bont double and certainly nol
looking ln the least like the goddess.
In question. "Do you mean to tell!
mo, cir, that any clergyman ever
christened you 'Vanus,' as you call.'
