Victoria, -svbere he  had been as & delegate from the board  to take up with the government a  number of matters affecting ihe interests of the Valley, as vreH as to consider a report from the Reclamation  Commitcee arising out of an'in-ad-.  vance stateai^nt from Mr. Constable  as to what had been accomplished on  behalf of the project as a result of his  visit to the capital. ;  "  The president's remarks were chiefly  concerning a rather unsatisfactory  interview he had with Hon. T. D.  Pattullo, minister of lands, on the  reclamation scheme, at a session of  the executive council, when that body  was wited upon by a delegation coin?  posed of Messrs, Constable, Mallandaine and OhilJs. Moore of Creston;  Jas. Anderson of Kaslo, and C. F. Mc-  Hardy Nelson on February 7th.  The wn fortunate feature of the Reclamation discussion with Mr. Pattullo  was the point blank refusal of the  minister to give any information as to  when work would bs ''"B-consiS-encpn  to finish up the engineering features  of the work on the Canadian   side   so  *V..������������-   .-.    ~.������2~.4     ��������� C L.J :*.1_     XV TT   O  xtaurt/ a. juiieu uviajiGrfijvts  wail   irgitj   xj.xy.  authorities could bjg had and 'the  feasibility or otherwise of the -undertaking be dually determined. Mr. Pat-  tullo's attitude was that his. depart  ment had other matters of equal mom  ent and that so far as he was concerned not even a probable date of getting  back to work on the scheme could be  given. "v .,'������������������..'  . Premier Oliver did. not share this  View, however, and pressed upon the  land's minister to make some statement, but even the premier's'' good  offices were of-no avail, and Mr.; Pat-'  tullo at this juncture excused himself  from the meeting, pleading another  engagement. Mr. Constable reported  a splendid reception from' the ntl\er  ministers of the cabinet, the premier,  the minister .of agriculture and the  minister of mines all speaking of the  worth-whilness of the Kootenay lauds,  and the desirability of reclamation.  However, as the scheme is one that  lies with the department of lands the  other ministers could give no assurances and shortly after Mr. Pattullo's  exist the meeting concluded.  During his stay in Victoria Mr Constable had v������ry satisfactory interview  with the minister of works who i.s  hopeful of being able to open the road  from Sirdar to Kuskanook wo us to  provide the needed'facility for autoists  to get on from Creston to Nelson without having to load their motor* .on  .freight cars at this point.  The question of tho proposed giving  of iiiore lands on tho Mats to the Creston Indians to augment their present  reserve, as por the recommnndation of  the Indian Commission, was discussed  , with Premier Oliver, who assuvod that  uo more land would be conceded either  here or at any other points where the  Indian commission had made similar  unwise concessions.  Tn    concluding-    Mr.   (Nonstable   ex-.,  pressed appreciation of the MKHhtanee  John Keen, M.P.P. , had lent  lilm    in  all   his  work   at Victoria, stating  he  felt that Mr. Keen fully   as   much   as  himself resented the rather high-hund-  ���������'* ed stand iiir, Pattullo had taken,   ami  .* that if liitirt! was anything   Wit:    Keen  ; could do to show the minister of hinds  the error of his ways on'this occasion,  certainly the local member  would   lie  very busy in that, direction.

Wc look to see the day m Manitoba when thc science of farming
shall be better understood. Wc have
referred to thc absolute necessity
S'and the possibility, of vastly increasing- our production on the present
acreage. The science of farming
taught in our college and in some of
our schools must bring fresh and
progressive ideas into farming. Instead of so -many herds of scrub
stock, scientific farming will introduce thoroughbred stock. Contrast
a fine stock farm with the ordinary
scrub stock farm.
Lack of education today results in
a loss annually, in this province
alone, amounting to millions of dollars. Wc are not speculative in our
ideas; we are dealing with proves, r
facts, established by the experience
of other countries.
Again, let us add that it is not for
us to say what the immediate policy
should be with respect to thc Agricultural College buildings, but wc
appeal lo our government and to
every citizen, to weigh well every
fact and phase of thc whole educational question, before taking . any
step which may stop, if only for a
time, progress towards better farming in the banner agricultural province���by nature at least���of the

along lines of scientific agriculture,
he profited by his technical education, and his hours were spent in the
laboratory and watching the result

Farmers and others in the vicinity
of Whiteshorc Lake, about 60 miles
west of Saskatoon, have joined in,- a
small stampede to stake what are
claimed to bc potash-bearing strata
under the lake and ou its borders.
All thc claims arc located in township. 37, range 16; and township 36,
range 15. Whitcshore Lake is a long,
narrow body of water about 18 miles
in length and from one to three or
four miles wide. The claims have,
been staked on the bottom of the
lake and aiong thc shore line.
The claims arc being staked as containing "sodium sulphate and othcr
mincrals." Although nothing is said
regarding thc potash in the claims as
filed, the words "and other minerals"
arc intended to include thc potash.
The district is not thc first one
containing sodium salts to be found
in Saskatchewan. Several other districts have been located during thc
past few months.
How the Canadian corps had to
fight eighty-four German battalions
at Cambrai, is shown in a letter
which the minister of militia has received from Major General Sir David
Watsoii; comamnding' thc Fourth
Canadian division at the front.
"When one comes to sum it up," ,
Sir David writes. "I find that there '
wrere no less than 13 divisions, consisting of eighty-four battalions, pitted against us during the first terrible
days. Thc Boche actually threw in
division after division, and unit after
unit, regardless of cost, in his attempt
to stop our victorious progress. It
was actually the hardest fighting that
our Canadians have been up against
and the manner in which they took
these terrible gruellings and stood
these assaults durin0' these <1avs. ia
one of the most creditable occurrences in thc anals of this great war."
Sir David also praises thc work of
reinforcements, "who had joined up
just before these last operations, and
who, I am sure, you will be delighted
to learn, stood it through so gallantly and couragcouslv. as to fit them to
be true comrades in every respect ot
the gallant men with whom they have
become associated."

Whale on Toast  New Brand o������ Oleo Contains Whale  Oil  You may have heard of whale on  toast, as a vaudeville joke, but according to advices received by Saska-j  toon wholesale grocers, the real thing J  is likely soon to arrive in the form of  a "whale oleomargarine, invented by  the famous Danish chemist, Dr.  Sopp." The Saskatchewan dairymen's association at their convention  in Saskatoon last winter, made strong  protests to the Ottawa government  against the fictitious sale of oleomargarine in the place of real butter. The  feeling is now being expressed if thc  recent commandeering butter order  was for the. purpose of making room  for whale oleomargarine. j.u������ new  product is  said to contain    ten    per  ���������conferred   With     Uer.erais  Rather Than Ministers  The Vancouver Province directs attention to the reported statement of  one of the German generals to the  effect that military commanders in  Germany differed from those of the  other nations inasmuch as they stuck  to their task and did not interfere  with 'politics and statesmanship. Our  western contemporary points out that  the facts are against this claim.  So thcy are. lhc war was made  by Germany's military war lords. German diplomacy, before the outbreak  of hostilities and after, was military  diplomacy. The voice of Berlin was  the voice of the commandants. Thc  kaiser conferred with his generals  rather than his ministers. Hinden-  berg, Tirpitz, and the Crown Prince  were the kind of men with whom he  took counsel.  It is.not so with the allied military  commanders. Foch does not participate in tne politics of France. JKaig"  does not influence the policy of Britain. Pershinf^iever had anything to  do with the administration in the  United. States. The Canadian commander-in-chief, General Currie, has  worked his way up from a regimental  command by paying exclusive attention to his work in the field.  And this condition is to be expected, for these generals represent democracy.���������Toronto Globe.

These kitchens, are no longer in use, the household, cooking being done in a much smaller kitchen  to save fuel. Coke is largely used  these times both at Buckingham Palace and Windsor.

Freedom of tlie Seas  Allies Obliged to   Exercise   Utmost  , Stringency  In u recent issue of the Journal of  the Royal Navy League of Siam, thc  king of Siam writes that many people are too enamored' with thc expression, "freedom of the.seas," even  to think of explaining it. One party  in favor of the policy, he observed,  wanted neutral ships to bc free from  the right of search. If, hc pointed  out. the right of search was abandoned, it would be practically impossible to detect thc passage, of contraband goods. Suspicion had born  aroused by thc fact that during tlio  war some neutral countries had  bought larger quantities of certain  goods than lliey had boon i'n thc  habit of doing, aud the inference was  that they were acting as iii'.iiils for  tlie central powers, who were unable  lo buy direct  for themselves.

Staples to the shareholders of Creston  Frnit Growers Union, Ltd., at the  annual meeting on Feb. 11th :  In addressing you this afternoon  as oue of your directors, and also  as your mananger, the feeling  which is uppermost in our minds is  one of satisfaction with the work  which has been done the last  three  ing your accounting, paying exchange, keeping your fruit insured  | against fire while awaiting shipment, taking care of claims and  grief of aii kinds, buying your supplies to the best advantage, giving  you credit on these supplies until  such times as your money begins to  come in and, in addition, a hundred and one odd jobs that fall to  our lot as your representative.  If you are in doubt as to whether  we earn our money or not let us  mention at least one concrete example. Last season we wrote and  mailed five thousand letters, which  was about five thousand less than  we would have written had we  been able to find the time.  Our report would not be complete this afternoon without some  reference to our selling policy.  For the past two years we have  adopted the policy selling direct to  the wholesalers. There is no reason why this policy should or should  ��������� x\ C~ ���������     i-U-  yv3L.X'L��������� V'T  v-j XTLTJf    ~iiXX3<5   Jf Curia    XXjX LIXXLJ  reason that three years   ago   your  directors and their   employees   undertook a task the difficult features  of which they  themselves  scarcely  realized.    This    problem   was   to  bring back a business   which   had  become bankrupt in dollars and   in  credit and, what was still more serious, which had lost the confidence  of the ranchers without whose patronage it could not' hope to contin  ne, back to a state of solvency and  to a condition where it merited the  confidence of the ranchers   and also  of the various firms to   whom   we  oo.ll   o *-**��������� <r|   -Pwwmn     iirnmririi wa  V-n-itr  uvii.

As  a   matter   of  fact we have confined our  dealings  largely to wholesalers for the simple  reason that we have always been of  the opinion that this was the   only  way in which onr   stuff  could   be  logically handled. Our   experience  during the last three years has not  furnished us with any good reason  for changing  this   view.    At   the  same time this is a question of policy which the directors should   decide -and decide in  accordance with  the wishes of the growers.  Should it be the wish of the  shareholders that we should at  tgmnt; i-ry aa\\ direct to the retailers  the present standing of your Com-  l pany is such that you might hope  bringing the Union back to its pies- j \or a greater measure of success j  put standing goes without saying, than would have been possible at  and it is difficult to refer to the any other time in the history of  matter at any length without appearing to sound one's own   praise.  VlltS    L/AAXlLfX,   XIX    onto  For this reason I intend to review-  past operations very briefly indeed.  I simply wish to impress upon you  that you have now at your service  a business which merits your utmost confidence. A business which  is able to take care of all of your  output quickly and intelligently,  and secure for you the highest  market price; guaranteeing yon  sure payments in a reasonable  ength of time after shipment. A  business that has the confidence of  the people to whom yon must sell  the bulk of your stuff, aud also enjoys the confidence of the houses  from whom supplies are purchased  and is able to obtain from these  people credit up to the full amount  of your needs.  In my fstinmtion more   important then ail this is    the    fact   that  the Union is able to give  3**ou   this  4nrv"ot������ at,   a    very    much    reciiiuud  cost to you as compared with  your  business of. ftay,   three   years   ago.

I can sympathize with   and understand   tlie feelings of  the man  who having stood ��������� by   the   Union  with his produce is faced with   the  fact that his neighbor has made. a  sale at a higher price  and,   in   addition, has no commission to   pay.  Let me say that so far as commission is concerned the Union   is   giving you service that you  are   getting mighty cheap at the price  you  are actually paying and as to   prices obtained just keep in  mind   the  fact that it is season averages that  count.    In this connection it is  interesting to note  that   our   prices  ! are second to none in the Province.  I have the figures of rue   organization that claims to sell all of  its  output direct to retailers and while  their priced are in someoases slightly higher than ours  tho   difference  is so slight that it offers absolutely  no temptation to follow that plan of  selling.     When you take into   con-  aidoration the added expense of doing business direct, the surety of accumulating a list of bad debts, and  the possibility of not always   being  able to find a matket for tho many  lines wo havo to handle, and on top  of this when we consider   tho   faot  that tho established wholesaler   by  reason of   perfected    organization,  superior selling ability, credit  connect ions and established preference  due to all-the-yoar-round business  can in all  probability obtain an average of 25 cent p. per package more  for atiytli!*",--; be may have to offer.  T say when you take all of this j  ; into consideration it seems to us  I the height, of folly for your Union  j to think of attempting to do otber-  I wise then follow the present plan  I ot selling We now have "iHUiiiliuli-  i ed connections with the best line of  ke The Reiisrmng Soldier Welcome  i'mh oe .mi Mtiooessfully handlld as in  the p.iMt.   there will'lw.   a    consider- ; wholesale    Iiouhch      ill    the     west.  ,il      ,.,,,,.   . .i ,.,.,..,... .,;   ; , ,,!  rrT I !,.- '   - ^'"*"  people  liuve m.    fiitiniiv      i'eni- |  -..���������..Kon to go back into the bands of! ������������������������������ M.witHM youi'   i,uhiim-*������ au    now  ..he. growers,   dust   keep   the*.'    fact ,t| '<"' "K "������������'���������'������"���������������"'  "'",     '''"���������*     <������"*aoUK  in mind, and    whi-n    you    are    up  '  < .vouched by our opposition,   ah yon  no doubt   wilt lie, vou rati point, out,  .I,...,..   ���������);:;���������������,   ���������'<-;���������������. r    '    ".::���������':'.   ;H      't'-Ml"  1      ..:,..

It is passing  from war to peace. Let us start this new era right.  There are thousands of soldiers returning from overseas. The Government is doing all in its power to  get these men back to civil life.  It is giving a Jfar Service Gratuity���������more than  any other nation���������to keep the soldier going till he  gets a job.  It gives hiftt a pension���������where his usefulness is  impaired by his service.  It teaches a man a new trade when uis service  unfits him for his former trade.

It  is   bringing   back   to  Canada at  the   public  expense the soldiers' dependents now overseas.  But the Government, however willingj cannot provide  the personal touch needed in  this work of repatriation.  That must be given by thc  people themselves.  The men who went from  thr������se rt.5i.rf..-*** %cs nuni. in Kiand-  ers deserve a real welcome  home���������the best we can give.  In most towns committees  of citizens have already been  organized to meet the soldiers  and their dependents at the  station, to provide hot meals,  supply automobiles, afford  temporary accosnmedatioxn  when necessary.  In addition, many other  towns are organizing social  gatherings to give public welcome to returned men after  they    have   been    home   a  few   days.  After he has rested, the  soldier must be provided with  an opportunity for employment. In towns of 10,000  population, Public Employment Offices have been established to help soldiers, as well  as war-workers5 secure good  ���������joDs quicKiy. vvnere mese  exist, citizens should co-operate, Where they do not exists  the citizens themselves should  help put the soldier ia touch  with employment.  The fighting job is done. It  has cost many a heart-burning. But it has been well  done. The least we can do  is to show bur appreciation  in no uncertain manner.  Don't let the welcome die  away with the cheers,  The Repatriation   C^nnmiii^e  OTTAWA  PRATT'S Stock Food. .75c  "    Poultry Food. 60c  Liquid Louse  VSItar  ItlllUJ,  7Ro.  .      ���������      ��������� Trm  Robinson's Louse  Powder. . .. 75c  Oyster Shell, 4c.

Too,1, almost 90  percent. o������ the Institute members  sold fruit through the Union and trading would be simpiified all round if  Ithese growers could get credit on feed  up-to the value of the fruit and vegetables deliyered to the Union for which  payment had not been made.  The point was raised as to whether  theC.p.R. would permit the Union to  undertake the work in a warehouse  on railway property, but this matter  was not taken'seriously. It was argued that if the railway would per-  ��������� iiiit.the Institute to do a trading business it wpiild hardly object to another farmers organization taking over  and carrying on the .(tame business.  A demand was also made that the  Union should give a ��������� guarantee that  the margin of profit ttiken would nev  er exceed the five per cent, charged tit  present. This,J;<tfi, was negatived, J.  A. Lidgate ainong other' things pointing out, thai, of tlio .Hcares of farmers  organizations doing a trading business  the Creston institute was the lowest  of them all. Mr. Lidgate also mado it  quite clear that tho wise policy was to  amalgamate on the terms set forth.  On motion of Messrs.

With Community Breeding established here we would adopt one breed  of dairy and one of beef cattle���������all, of  course, registered stock. This system  of co-operation will enable us to import the best sires obtainable, 'The  individual breeder can seldom afford  to do this. ..., ,  The sale of surplus breeding stock  becomes much easier under the Community system because outside buyers I  know that they can make up carloads |  of registered stock quite easily* As an  example of the success of this system  one district in Wisconsin shipped out  ii,c~0v j\r\4. xt-.  ~������ . :_x_. i -..

Six men who had taken their masks off too soon had succumbed, and yet, a few minutes later  a cat was seen sunning itself, and  performing a leisurely toilet on the  roof of a dugout.  All other animals are badly affected by gas. but apparently the cat is  immune. In the ramparts at Ypres  the rats s*yvarm ia the dugouts, but  hundreds may be killed without any  difficulty, for many are blind, and  nearly all arc "dopey" from the effect  of incessant gas attacks.  Gas seems to have taken the fur  from the skins of many of them, and  ���������probably because their nests are  impregnated with gas-^-the new generations all appear to be afflicted.  The wheezy cough of the gassed rat  is a common sound in all dug outs.  Horses and mules suffer badly,  and have their own gas masks. Dogs  make tracks for fresh regions when  gas is falling. But cats apparently  stay there all the time. Of course,  some find safety in gas-proof dug  outs, but that docs not account for  all of them. Perhaps their nine lives  come to their assistance.  ���������TrrsTT-D  sod intentions don't pay the grocer's n  JL   bills.   Your family has to live even i. yon ~  don't.

Changing Weather Conditions   Have  Destroyed Plants  One of the industries for which  Florida was famous for years has  been gradually passing out during  the last five years and will soon be  extinct if some way is not found soon  to  revive it.  Pineapples almost vied with oranges 10 years ago when over 1,000,-  QOi) crates were shipped every summer from lower East Coast, besides  considerable quantities from other  sections of the state. The changing  weather conditions which brought  the cold a little harder each winter  have gradually destroyed thc plants  until this year very few shipments  were made of pineapples from thc  state, and what were" shipped \verc  small and of inferior quality.  Thc one greatly favored section on  the Indian Kiver, from ten miles  north of Ft. Fierece to fifteen miles  south of that city, along, the high,  sandy ridge skirting the river, has  frequently produced ovcr three-quarters of a million crates of the finest  pineapples; Avhich brought from $1.50  to $4 a crate. Thc pineapple growers in this section have been greatly  discouraged over the conditions and  their failure to produce crops, and  most of them have given up trying  to raise the luscious fruit and have  been casting about for something  that can be raised successfully on the  ridge.  Awful Asthma Attacks.    Is there a  member of your family who is in the  power of this distressing trouble? No  service you can render him wiii equal  the bringing  to his  attention  of  Dr.  T.  D.     Kcllogg's    Asthma     Remedy.  This   remarkable   remedy     rests     its  j reputation  upon  what  it    has     done  j for others.    It has a truly wonderful  ' record,  covering years and  years   of  , success  in  almost  every part  of  this  ! continent, and even beyond the'scas.  Few people realize that nervous ailments often arise from digestive  troubles. Thc stomach fails, for  some reason, to digest food properly.  Then thc system languishes and the  nerves become exhausted in striving  to continue their work. Impure blood  also causes nerve troubles, but frequently it is in the stomach where the  mischief starts. As "the nourishment  is carried to thc nerves by the blood,  it will bc seen what an important connection exists between thc stomach,  thc nerves and the blood, and how  such troubles as nervous headaches,  nervous dyspepsia and insomnia may  begin. # ...  In such cases relief is easily obtainable by means of Dr. Williams' Pink  tvii_    'i-i _:ii_. ���������i������������������:ak   *i-.~   10^^.1  X His.    iiitM;   j>u������s>    ^t^itmau    tuv.    uwuu  with the food elements on which the  nerves thrive; at thc same time they  exercise a tonic influence on the digestive organs, enabling the  to derive nourishment from  taken.

Sure Death for Gophers  Writing in reference to an item in  The Canadian Food Bulletin, relative to the campaign against gophers  in Manitoba, ***. Vancouver correspondent says: "It might be good service  if you made known the method of  dealing with the gopher pest, as  practised in California; this ia by  leading the fumes from an automobile  or motor cycle into their burrows. A  piece of garden hose is attached to  the exhaust of thc machine by one  end while the other end is put into  the hole. Thc motor is then allowed  to run and the gases, which consist  mostly of carbon monoxide, flow  down into the burrow and poison the  occupants. As thc gas is heavier than  air, it lodges in thc dips and hollows  and remains effective for a long period."  Plants That Urow in Craters  In the crater of the extinct vol  vano, Haliakalau, in the Hawaiian  Islands, there flourishes a curious  plant, locally known as "Silver  Swords!" They are evidently some  kind of cacti. Efforts to propagate  them elsewhere have, it is said, always failed.

So the chief constable had gone  back to the links, and Inspector  Noakes was free to indulge in the  afternoon nap with which he loved to  comfort his too solid flesh in the hot  summer days, tie was in his private  room in the police station at St.  Brannock's, his great baggy face buried in arms outstretched on the oltice  table, when the telephone bell roused  him  into muddled  activity.  Shambling over to the instrument,  he took up the receiver and learned  that hc was speaking to P. C. Jar-  rott, the officer in sole charge of the  King's peace at Comlyn.  "Yes, it's Mr. Noakes. What's up?"  hc demanded testily. "'"'Eh? Another  mystery? For God's sake don't say  it's a murder."  The suDe'rintendcnt listened to the  labored answer, his double chin failing into its natural creases, and his  eyes losing their sudden alarm, as it  wandered through a quagmire of detail.  'Oh come! that's better," he replied at the end of the constable's  yarn. "Master Tom Burbury missing, is he, and his ma in her tantrums? Boy's lark, of course, but we  must keep that woman's tongue off  us, Jarrott. I'll drive over and look  into it. Meet mc at the rectory at  four."  Giving orders for thc dog cart in  which he visited outlying districts to  be brought round, he jogged along  through the country lanes and eventually across the moor that lay between Comlyn and thc sea.# As he  nearcd thc village his spirits rose.  Officially, he told himself, he was  being dragged from his siesta on a  wild goose chase which���������with a fine  mixture of metaphors���������would develop into a mare's nest; but having vindicated the majesty of the law . he  would call on Mr. Jevons in his nice  cool panty at Comlyn Court. There  would bc long tumblers in that pantry, picntyof ice, and a selection of  bottles to make the ice palatable.  Superintendent Noakes was not too  partial to water, even in ils frozen  state, unless hc was very hot. He  was very hot now, as he gave the  reins to tho young* constable who  had accompanied him, and got down  to meet Jarrot, who was - awaiting  him at thc rectory gates.  "Lord, but it's warm!" he greeted  his local subordinate as he mopped  his prespiring  face.  "You'll find it warmer inside, sir,"  said P. 0. Jarrott gloomily. He was  ;t married man with a park of children, and he had dire experiences of  living under Mrs. Burbury's despotic  fiway. Long after all this bother  was over he confided to his wife that  he had worked hard on a problem  which had for its solution Mrs. Burbury as the murderess of Mrs. Morgan.  Superintendent Noakes, though not  a  leMueui  i.i i   Cuunwi,   w ��������� ni  .i   11 i^iiieu-  ed man as he knocked at the rectory  donr. The reputation of the lady  who dwelt there was notorious for a  radius of twenty miles. And hi:* apprehension w:is justified, lor the  Monti broke directly the door was  opened���������by Mrs. Burbury in person. I let- mean, ferrety eyes snapped tire; every an^le iu her shapeless  iil'.nre  stuck  out  aggressively.  "So yi.ni have eondesceiided to  conic at last, Mr. Noah, s," was her  welcome. "Into this room, phase,  ami wipe \oin liool:, mi iiie in.it, ".ou  Jarrott. A 'pretty sink of inuinitv  Conilyn   is   growing   into,   with   itnilis  holidays.    And we  poor clergy taxed I  beyond our means to find your wages  for doing nothing while we' starve."  They had entered the dining room,  and Sam Noakes, mopping his heated  brow again, was neaiiy goaded into  mention of a noble sirloin of cold  beef on the sideboard. But discretion prevailed, and he fell back on  the unfailing resource of the rural  policeman. . He produced his notebook and a stub of pencil.  "If you will kindly inform me  when your son was last seen, madam, and any other -partic'Jars adjacent to the inquiry I'll do my best,"  he said respectfullj*. "Of course," his  evil genius prompted him to add,  "there's a h'old haddige which says  that boys will be boys. Maybe Master Tom is only playing truant."  ������ This w-as more than feeble jocularity; it was rank rebellion and mutiny. Like the Ancient Mariner, Airs.  Burbury held Superintendent Noakes  with  a glittering eye.  "My boy is not an ordinary boy,"  she spat out venomously. "He is a  young gentleman of very high brain  power. Though he. is only fourteen  he is wdiat you will  never be  if  you  i;.-������       Xrx       r.        \-..���������  J_���������.1 - ~1 ...        ,1-J- >-'-   .4.4 x.     cv>    cl     i iii lilt I v-vl IX     CiCVi-i      u\;ii.\.Liv V.  Under my guidance he has been trying to make good your failure to  bring thc Morgan murder home to  thc criminal. He has fallen a victim  to one of Sir Anthony West's emissaries."  Noakes did not know what an  emissary was, but the. declaration  roused his curiosity. He was uot  keen on reopening thc slender case  against Sir Anthony, but if there was  any bedrock to the ravings of his  termagant, he might still be able to  stick in his cap the feather which had  eluded him. Hc would cheerfully  abandon his "h'axiom" for good and  all if he could go one better on the  public prosecutor and Scotland Yard.  "1 beg 3'our pardon, madam; that  puts a new complexion on the affair,"  hc climbed down. "Kindly favor me  with  the  p;irtic'lars."  Thc rector's wife accepted the surrender with a shrug of her broad  shoulders. Thc story she had to tell  was of the simplest. The previous  evening Tom had gone out between  eight and nine o'clock as he had been  in the habit of doing lately, promising to be back by ten, but he had  not returned, nor could any news of  his having been seen after leaving  the rectory grounds be obtained; Diligent inquiries had been made in the  viuage, nisi uy ivus. xiurbury ner-  self and later by P. C. Jarrott, but  with no result. The boy had vanished like a puff of smoke.  "Didn't Master Tom say where he  was going?" Noakes poised his pencil for the reph\ The question was  thc first that occurred to him. It  seemed the most natural one to put,  and it was put with no idea of it being at all disconcerting. Y'et the  dauntless Mrs. Burbur***- hesitated before  giving her answer.  "He hinted that he might be going  down to the shore," she admitted  tardily.

It grows in  swampy lands, and is well known in  Canada. The flowers, touched with  beautiful, delicate tints, are prized  for decorative purposes. But the  wonder of the pitcher plant is its  leaves. They are green, water-holding pitchers, beautifully veined with  red and pu:ple, with considerable  variation in form. During rainfalls  they are filled with water. This  largely evaporates, leaving thc receptacle   half   full.      Externally   these  cups are smooth, while internally  they are lined with fine bristles  pointing downward. There is also a  sticky, sugary sort of semi-fluid substance to bc found around thc inner  margin of thc bowl or pitcher.   This  bread per day. The third attempt to  escape called forth the horrible reprisal of being nailed to a plank of  wood by thc fleshy web between the  large  thumb   and   forefinger,  scars   still   remain.  where  On   the    fourth  arrangement not only attracts a large j occasion  the     poor    fellow    received  number of  tiny insects,  but  they are i three   bayonet    wounds    in the stom-  t���������&xfv  o eager to feed on the sugary sub  stance that not a few tumble into the  water below and die there. Thcy  cannot fly out, for the lines of flight  would be practically vertical, while  hundreds of little bristles confronting them prevent escape over thc  surface by walking out. Many believe that the plane, through its  leaves, absorbs thc digestive parts of  these insects, and that thcy thus contribute to its nutrition; in other  words, that thc pitcher plant to this  extent is one of the carnivores of the  vegetable kingdom.  t-r.r.nrr  7.r.~. rxrxx .7 i. ..

"I said nothing about it because in  thc first place Jarrott is so stupid that  hc would bungle anything hc undertook," Mfs. Burgury rather defiantly  explained her curious omission.
