STEAD  Published By Special Arrangement With the Author. >  (Continued)  CHAPTER VI  In the Spell of the Mirage  A quarter of a century is a short  time as world history goes, but it is  a considerable era in the life of the  Canadian West.     More  things���������momentous  things���������than  can be hinted  at In   this  narrative   occurred in   the  -twenty-five years following the great  Inrush of 1882. The boundless prairie  resell**0 of" Mcinitokct were now coni-  paratively well settled, and the tide of  immigration, which, after a dozen  years' stagnation, had set in again in  - greater flood than ever, was now  sweeping over the newer lands still  farther west. Railways had supplanted ox-cart and bob-sleigh as the  freighters of* the plains; the farmer  read his daily paper on the porch  after    supper,    while    his    sons    and  daughters   drove  to^, town  m   "top'  buggies, tailor-made suits, and patent  leather shoes. The howl of the coyote had given way to the whistle of  the locomotive; beside the sod hutof  earlier days rose the frame or"*brick  house proclaiming prosperity or social ambition. The vast sweep of the  horizon, once undefiled by any work  of man, was pierced and broken with  elevators, villages, and f2nn buildings  and the whiff of coal smoke was  blown down the air which had so  lately known only the breath of "the  prairies. The wild goose no longer  loitered" in thc brown fields in spring  and autumn, and the wild duck had  sought the safety, of the little lakes.  The pioneer days had*passed away,  and civilization and prosperity were  rampant in thc land. There were  those, too, who thought that perhaps  the country had lost something in all  its gaining; that perhaps there was  less- idealism and less unrcckoning  hospitality Tn the brick housc on the  hill than there once had been in the  sod shack in thc holloa.    **  Mary Harris hurried about her capacious kitchen, eieop ,in the preparation  of thc evening meal, 'The years had  taken toll or the freshness of her  young beauty; thc shoulders, in mute  testimony to much hard labor of the  hands, had drooped forward over the  deepening che.= t; thc hair was thinner,  and farther back above thc forehead,  and streaked with grey at the temples;  thc mouth lacked the rosy sensuous-  ness of youth, and sat now in a mould  half of resolution, half submission.  Yet her- foot had lost little of its  sprightliness, and the sympathy in  her fige eyes seemed to - havc decp-  .ened with the years.  A moist but appetizing steam rose  from the vegetable pots on the range,  and when she -threw back the iron  door to feed morfti coal the hot glow  from within dan-ccd' in reflection  along the bright row of utensils  hanging from the- wall, and even  sought out the brass plate on thc  cream separator at the far* end of thc  big room. Through the screen door  came the monotonously -redundant  clic-a-clank of the windmill, and a  keen ear might have caught thc light  splash of -water as it fell in the  wooden horse-troughs from the iron  nozzle of the pump.  Mary stuck a fork in a potato to  ascertain if the "bone" was all gone,  meanwhile shielding her face from the  steam with the pot Fid, held aloft in  an -aproned hand. Having satisfied"  herself that the .meal was making  satisfactory progress, she stepped to  the door and sent a quick look across,  the fields, to where a streak of black  smoke was scrawled along the skj':  "Beulah," she called, turning toward the interior part of the housc.  "Come, Beulah, set thc tabic. -Thcj-'rc  coming from the field."  In a moment a girl of twenty,  plainly attired^ in a neat calico dress,  entered the kitchen. She was fresh  and beautiful as her mother had been  that first summer in the sod house on  the bench, and something hi*her appearance suggested that with her  mother's beauty and fine sensibility  she had inherited the indomitable  spirit which had made yjohii Harris  one of the most prosperous farmers  in the district. She moved in an easy  unconscious grace of self-reliance-���������  a/reliance that must be just a little  irritating to men of old-fashioned notions concerning woman's dependence on the sterner sex���������drew the  long wooden table, with its covering  of white oilcloth, into the "center of  the kitchen, and began placing the  dishes in position. \  "I don't see why we can't have supper in the dining-room," she protested at length. "Before we built the  new house we were always talking  about how fine it would be to have a  separate room for our meals, and now  we don't ea't iti -it once a week."  "I know," said the mother, in a  quiet, tired voice. "But you know  what your father thinks- about it.  You know how down he is on style."  "It's no great style to eat in a dining room," continued the 'girl. ' What  did he build it for? To take off his  boots in? That's about all he does  there, nights before he goes to bed."  "Now, Beulah, don't be unreasonable. You know we always have  meals- there Sundays. But your father  likes the kitchen best when it ain't  too hot. And besides, T can hardly  !take them into the-dining. Toorn while  tlie plowing's on. Yoti know how  greasy they are with the engine."  "They're p'owin*? over nt Grant's,  too, and when I dropped- in there yesterday the dinner was -**ct in the dining room, and a clean white linen  cloth on the table, and napkins set  for the men, and I guess thcy use the  same kind of grease as we do,!' persisted- thc girl. "And I noticed -when  thc boys came in to dinner Mr. Grant  and thc boys ,and the hired man too,  all put thcir coats on���������not their  working coats, but coats they had  hanging in a closet handy. It didn't  take a minute, but it looked different."  "Now, Beulah, you know your father would never stand for putting on  airs like that.   He "  " Tisn't putting on airs. It's put-  ping on clothes���������clean plothes to cat  in. Susy Grant never has to feel���������I  hate  to   say  it, mother���������ashamed  if  HeaSSlife  is the only one that  counts.

And I couldn't help thinking  how fine Harry looked "  " 'Pon my word, Beulah, I'm beginning to think you must bo. a bit  soft on Harry Grant. I had thought  perhaps your weakness was toward  Jim, btit perhaps I'm mistaken."  "Can't a girl say a,fellow's fine-  looking without being soft about it?"  she continued,   "As for Jim "  But at this moment  thc conversation was cut short by thc scraping of  heavy boots on the ploughshare, nailed  to the block at thc door, aud John  Harris,   followed   by  Allan   and   the  hired man, Jim, walked into the kitchen. The farmer's frame was heavier  than in his younger days, and his hair  was   streaked  with   grey,  but  every |  muscJe in his great body seemed to  bulge with strength.       His face was  brown with the prairie sun and wind  of twenty-five summers, and lines of  worry and cAre had cut thcir tracings  about the mouth and eyes.     Beside  him    ������tood    Allan,    his    only    son,  straighter and Hther of figure, but almost equally powerful.   Tho younge,-  man wa������, tn<k**dw a replica of the older, and although they had their dl������������  agreement*, constant association had  developed a fine comradeship, and, on  the putt oi the son, a loyalty *qua1 to  any strain.    The hired man, Jim, wan  lighter and finer of feature, and his  white t������fth gleamed against the nut-  brown of hi* face In a <iuiet ������mile that  refused to be displaced In ������ny ewer*  ge-ncy, and at times left the beholder  in considerable doubt as to th* real  emotions working behind.  The m*������n alt wore blue overalls,  dark blue or grey ������hirr<*, and heavy  boots.     They were gull i Irs* of coat  or vest, "and tossed thcir light straw  hats on the water-bench as thcy passed. There was a quick splashing of  greasy ..hands at the wash-basin, followed .by a*-more -effectual rubbing on  a towel made from a worn-out grain  sack. ;VThe~ hired man paused to  change the'water and wash his-face,  but the others proceeded at once to  the tabic, where no time was lost in  ceremony. . Meat, potatoes and boiled'cabbage were supplied in generous quantities on large platters. A  fine stack of! white bread tiered high  on a plate, and; a mountainous pile of  Mary Harris's famous fresh bun's  towered on -another. All hands ate  at thc table together, although the hired man was.usually last to sit down,  owing to his perverse insistence upon  washing his face and combing his hair  before each meal. Although this loss  of time sometimes irritated Harris, hc  -bore it in silence. There was no better farm hand, in thc country-side than  Jim Travcrs, and, as Harris often remarked, employers' nowadays couldn't afford to bs too particular about  trifles.  Harris helped'Ijiimself generously to  meat * and vegetables and, having  done so, passed the platters to his son,  "and in this way thcy were circulated  about lhc table. Mary poured thc  tea from a big granite pot at her elbow, and whenever a shortage of food  threatened Beulah rose from her  .place..*'and:.refilled, plate or platter.  Tliejrc was no talk for the first few  minutes, only the sounel^of knife and  fork plied vigorously and interchangeably by father and son, and with some  regard for convention by thc other  members of the; family. John Harris  had long, ago recognized, the truth  that the .'destiny; of food  was the mouth, and whether convey-  .ed on knife or fork made little difference. Mary, too, had found a carelessness of-little details both of manner and speech coming over her, as  tren* occasional "ain't" betrayed, but  since Jim had joined their table she  had been on her guard. Jim seldom  said anything;,- but always that quiet  smile lay like a mask over his real  emotions.  When 'the. first insistent demands of  appetite had been appeased. Harris,  resting both elbows on thc table, with  knife and fork trained on opposite  corners of-the ceiling*, straightened  himself somewhat and remarked:  "Allan  an' me's goin'   to  town  tonight; anything you waiit from Scinp-  . ter's store, Mary?"    -  "That lets nie in for the cows," said  Beulah. "You were in town night  before last, too, and it was half-past  nine before I got through milking."  "Oh, well, Jini was away that  liight," said Allan. Y   ���������  "Jim has enough to do, without  .milking cdXvs aft������r hours," returned  the girl. "What do you want to go  to town for again to-night, anyway?"  "Got to get more coal," said Harris.  "We'll take two teams, an* it'll be late  when wc get back."  "Try and not bc too late," said the  mother, quietly. "You have to be at  work so early in the morning, you  know."  . v "I think it's all nonsense,'this day-  an'-night work," persisted Beulah.  "Is there never going to be any letup to it?" ,  ' "Beulah, you forgot yourself," said  her father, "If you'd more to do you'd  have less time to fret about it. Your  mother did more "work in one summer thau you havc in all your life, an'  she's doin' more yet."  "Oh, Bculah's a good help," interposed Mary. "I hope she never has  to work like I did."  "I guess the work never hurt us,"  *said Harris, helping- himself to preserved strawberries. "Just the same,  I'm glad to sec you gettm' it ya bit  easier.

Do you discriminate at the dining  table���������tor are you  In thousands of homes,  a "line" is drawn at the  breakfast table. Tea or*  coffee ia served for  "grown-ups" and Postum  for children. But some  parents do not discriminate. Tannin and caffeine,  the' injurious contents of  tea and coffee, seriously  retard the development of  the delicate nerve tissues  in children.  Consequently, instead  of rich, satisfying Postum,  children are over stimulated by the drugs in tea  and coffee; and so may  grow up irritable and  nervous. Any doctor can  tell you that this is a  great evil and should be  corrected.  rf"'  Although some parents feel a certain justification for the personal  indulgence in tea or coffee,  yet the harm to them may  be equalljr serious. It  may take a little while  longer for tho drugs in  tea und coffee to affect  an older person, but in  many cases the nervous  system and allied bodily  functions will become  weakened. The surest  way to avoid such possibilities is to quit tea and  coffee entirely and drink  Postum instead. The  change permits you to  get sound, restful sleep.  Postum is the well-  known, meal-time' beverage. Like thousands of  others you will like it because, in flavor it is tfch  and satisfying.  Do away with the distinction at the table.  Serve delicious] Postum,  piping hot, toall thefamily.  One week's trial and it is  likely that you'll never  return to tea or coffee.

Saunders, the Dominicn-Cerealist, in a bulletin entitled "Wheat, Flour and  Bread," recently issued by the Experimental Farms Branch' at 'Ottawa.  The named used, says Dr; Saunders,  is- entirely misleading, as these flours  often contain a high percentage of  starch and are quite unsuitable for  diabetic patients. .Asa rule the gluten flours offered for sale- are practically identical with the whole wheat  and graham flours. Genuine" gluten  flour, which is made by washing the  starch out of wheatcn flourjand then  drying and grinding, is extremely expensive.' Gluten bread has no" resemblance to ordinary bread and as a ���������substitute-for such is an impossibility.  Rather less than 50 per cent, of genuine gluten flour can', be mixed with  ordinary flour, and bread of medium  quality be made. Gluten flour can  also be used in the production of pancakes,', biscuits and other products  provided it bc mixed with ordinary  flour, fine shorts or ground nuts, together with eggs, milk, bakihg powder, etc. . There is, however^ no possibility of ��������� producing any form of  palatable bread, biscuit or cake with  a very large proportion of pure gluten flour. Dr. Saunders suggests that  physicians would bje well advised to  take cognizance of these facts and not  to expect their patients to purchase  what is unpurchasable or to eat what  is inedible. The bulletin, it might be  remarked, goes thoroughly Into its  subject, treating it in all its phases.

For a time the mayor  took the barometer quite seriously,  ~ but as this did not always enable  him to prognosticate as definitely  as he would wish, he,quit the mercury and turned to a scrutiny of  the sunsets, nature's infallible indi  eatore, as he now terms them.  r Here is how theymayor makes his  meteorological forcasts:  A yellow sunset is a sure sign of  wet. The colour is there because  condensed vapour refracts ^yellow.  .m- Swch vapour may hold itself for a  time, but it is bound to let itself out  within twelve hours, or Jess, as  rain.  ' ��������� yA red sunset indicates,   as most  of us know, a fine day on the morrow.       The yapours have not been  condensed even by the cold of sun  set, and except in extremely abnor-  means rain.      Vapour i  air is just on the point of being con  densed.    An   hour or * two   and it  will, because it must, fall  as rain.  A grey sunrise indicates a fine  day. The grey���������diluted white,  really���������shows that the higher re  gions of the air are free of moisture,  and thus the feeble white light can  pass through.  A grey sunset is more of an indication of the night's weather than  the morrow's.- Bain will probably  fall after midnight, &nd the sky  tint at sunrise will show whether  the condensation is finished . I$ed,  more rain; grey, a fine day; yellow,  rain after-midday.  A sunrise without no definite colouring shows unstable conditions.  There may be" local showers, varied  with bursts of sunshine.  A copper sky, night or morning,  is a bad sign. Thunderstorms,  with heavy rain, wiii come.  find out tbe number of kilowats  [ths-t would be required I c&unot  give you the figures, but if you will  compare these authentic figures  with those givesi you by Water Lotr  you will no doubt think that he had  imbibed a! part of the contents of  the flask of the drunken sailor, and  that while in that state of deierium  had been intoxicated into an exhu-  berant verbosity of incomparable  exaggerations, and while in that  state found his. way into the public  press with, tlie  results as you see.  tntxm.  .anvW  it^rtrJUm  irriga uion  concluded by asking all parents to  see to it that their children toofc-  propsr advantage of the splendid  ucational facilities they possessed  rxr.Cxrxrx  and did their work as well as possible, for he said that this is the age  of education.--that off th.9 self-made  man is past.

Rabat* of one-half of cost of  road, not exceeding half of purchase  Editor Review: v  Sir,���������I see by your paper that  you have an unnamed correspondent who has taken the liberty to  criticise tny letter on irrigation and  light. So far as I am personally  concerned I have, all thc vsjs.ter I  need, and the first line of my .letter  showed distinctly the reason why  I wrote that letter. '    ~  Your correspondent states that it  will take a 100 horse power engine  to pump the water-1 speak of, and  further states the cost of such power���������-that is the engine alone���������to  be $12,500, and a like sum for the  pump, and still another $9000 for  the working expenses of the plant,  or, in other words, a grand; total of  .934,00^:.  It is nice   to  know that though  my capacity fo^   wielding, the pen,  scheme was too mildly named. A  better name would have been the  ravages of a mad bull, with a placard notice between itt> horns bearing tbe inscription, "I want a mortgage'of $3000 on this 40 acres; in  fact I will make you mortgage it,  and if you don't pay up I will gore  you and your family on to the road  and give your home to another."  Some people seem to have the  idea that all they have to do is to  at once develop the Goat River canyon, but yon should understand that  the rights as to said cannon have  long ago been applied for. The  official records * show that under  date of May 22, 1908, Lennie &  Wragge, lawyers of Nelson* obtained legislative sanction to use the  canyon power for the purpose of op  erating a railway, irrigation, and  light and power, and it is said that  these legal gentlemen have quite  publicly announced that they will  contest the validity of their claim  to the last ditch.  It wonld be well to find out if  these lawyers would give up their  rights. If they will not, but will  fight the issue to the last ditch*  then how are you going to develop  it. And, after ail is said and done,  it may be a case of pump or pant.  _T. M. EDMONDSON.

I am  also offered two  50  h.p. engines���������  the two for $1200  and two 50 h.p.  boilers, the two for $3000, making  a total of S4200.     On this 100 h.p.  plant a difference of $8300 between  the cost of this plant and the plant  spoken of by your unnamed correspondent.  My other letter offers me a plant  for $1400, which they guarantee  will raise 36,000 gallons 350 feet  high in ten hours, or at a oostof a  little less than one oent a barrel,  with a guarantee as follows: "We  have many years of valuable experience in this special Work, and are  in a position to absolutely guarantee for a number of years every  plant we furnish, and we take back  or replace at our expense what falls  short in any way."  When one thinks of a little plant  which will throw enough water in  a day to water 30,000 tomato  plant*, giving <-ach plant one gallon of water nt a cost of one cent for  the water for ten plants, to say  nothing of the wat-er'tH fertilizing  i properties*; mtroly you could not  auk more.

After saying  that the secular education, given by  them was of the best, he pointed  out that parents' responsibility Ndid  not end with sending the children  off every morning, but they must  see that they went there, and that  they did their home lessons given  out. by the teachers. He also pointed out that the teachers represented authority, and ^hat the parents  should always side with the teacher if any time there should be  trouble between teacher and pupil.  He pointed out that if the parents  flouted the teacher's authority, orin  any way belittled the teacher they  were striking a blow, not merely at  the teacher but also, at authority in  general, including their own..

Had Avis  beenjn shape to go the entire route  Creston would have undoubtedly picked off-ihe first of the two encounters.  Playing all season against fast heaving the~visitors could do .little or nothing with Avis' slow delivery,'and  in  the five rounds he adorned the hillock  Avis had six sttikeuts to his credit���������  the heavy hitting   McTeer   being as  easy to get as the rest of them.

It Certainly Delivers  The Goods, Declares  anitoba Merchan  Iu a young and new country like Canada, and Especially when the population is of a most cosmopolitan character, a regular polyglot of language  and races-, there is apt to develop a feeling akin to contempt for the historical past and those traditions of older lands which have been handed down  from generation to generation and become woven into and a part of the  national character. There is liable to be an impatience with all that savors  of precedent and a scorn of reliance upon long tried principles and policies  which have brought thc race lo where it is today, enlarged its freedom and protected its liberties.  Granted that it would be a mistake for any new country to supinely  rely upon and slavishly follow in the^footsteps of older lands and their historical past; admitting-that only by new departures, by blazing new trails,  by a courageous initiative, can there be progress���������it is none the less true  that in the forward march the safe, the prudent course is to retain a strong  anchor in the past; to press onward, not by the adoption of revolutionary  methods, but through wise evolution, profiting by the mistakes and-lessons  of thc past, but inspired by the glorious traditions and achievements of our  forefathers*, and guided by their ripened experience and wisdom.  What made England the bulwark of the Allied cause throughout this  long drawn out years of thc Great War? Why was it that Germany fe?xred  England more than_all her other enemies combined?

No, it is not because of these things. But it is because there is grounded  in the people of England���������not merely those now living within the confines  of England, but in all parts of the world���������the great traditions of England,-  the inspiration of England's literature, the lives, the words, the deeds of  England's gresffnen. It is such traditions as that established by England's  sailors, "Women and children first," and "the captain-\vas the last to leave  the sinking ship," that has maintained untarnished England's mercantile  service and made, her naval supremacy no threat to the world. "England  never knows when she is beaten," impatiently declared onc of her greatest  enemies in a bygone age, and that tradition remained with the soldiers and  sailors of Greater England throughout the Great War, even in the darkest  days, impelling them on to snatch victory from the very jaws of defeat  Fish In Abundance.

An Englishman admires a good fighter and is  the first to admit his good qualities, whether it be on the battlefield or the  field of sport. English sport the world over is a synonym for "clean,"  "Play fair" has become a national characteristic.  Down through the centuries England, v/liile tenacious of her own rights  and privileges, has frankly recognized the rights and privileges of others.  Even when an autocratic sovereign has on occasion done wrong and persisted in it, the real heart of England has opposed that wrong. In a word  it is a tradition of England to be just, and even those who condemn some  of her policies in past' centuries must, in truth, recognize that in those less  enlightened years England was in advance of other countries, plodding on  towa'rd a brighter, better day.  -    From these traditions there has grown and developed a strong national  character, a national pride, a high sense of national honor.      W^en England gives her word, all nations recognize that she will keep it.     Belgium  relied upon the word of England in 1914, and did not rely in vain.      Germany, alone, failed to realize that England's pledges are made to bc kept  and not treated as scraps of paper.     Only recently, during the world-wide  discussion of thc question of renewal of the Anglo-Japanese treaty, Lloyd  George again  silenced all critics when, after pointing out how Japan had  faithfully fulfilled her obligations during thc Great War and made possible  England's  great  effort  in  France without  the handicap  of  guarding the  Pacific, hc asked: "Shall England, having accepted this assistance when it  was so urgctly needed, turn round and refuse to maintain thc niutual obligation  now  that  England docs  not  require it?"      Englishmen emphatically  answer-id, no.  England's traditions arc thc source of England's strength and England's  greatness. Thcy arc the warp and woof cf the national character. Without them in these days of world upheaval England and the British Empire  might easily bc rent asunder and go down in the oblivion of other great empires of the past. No country can truly call itself a nation until it has  achievfd great traditions. Despite all the horror, suffering and loss of thc  Great War, it has at least conferred this benefit on Canada that it has given  our people one great tradition, one that will live forever and will leave an  indelible impression f-n a.11 future generations of Canadians,"  tions.

'What is  far more important is that you should  intelligently examine the various  symptoms and trace the cause. When  you remove the cause, health will be  yours. For example, anaemic people  often endure months of suffering  while treating its symptoms, such as  indigestion, shortness of breath, palpitation of the heart and exhaustion  after any small  effort.  The apparent stomach and heart  troubles are generally nothing more  than the result of an insufficient stio-  ply of pure blood. This anaemic  state may have followed some previous illness, or an attack of influenza or it may have arisen ��������� from  overwork, worry or too little fresh  air.

Bread-making is an art not nearly  so extensively practiced in the household as in bygone days.

And then thc baker  has facilities that the Housekeeper has  not.     For, instance, one of the maii\  difficulties encountered when bread is  being made in the Tiomc is the lack, of  a-place where'the dough can bc kept  at   suitable   and   even   temperature  throughout the whole period of fermentation.     Relative to this facj, Dr.  C. E. Saunders, the Dominion-Cereal-  ist, in a bulletin recently issued at Ottawa on "Wheat, Flour and Bread,"  says that where bread is made very  often it would be Advisable to construct-a special fermenting' box   or  cupboard, where the temperature can  be maintained at between 80 and 90  degrees.     Once the process pf fermentation has started the dough must  not be allowed to become either chilled or overheated.

NeW York.���������An estimate of $-1,500,-  000 was paid by life insurance corn-  panics of thc continent in death claims  from automobile fatailti.es during 1920,  is published by the Insurance Press.  The figures ftrc quoted to show  that during the ycar ^o automobile  caused 12,000 fatalities and a million  other injuries. -  A  Runaway   Car  at   Grand  Rapids,  Portage  Three and a half miles of steel rails  crossed   the   Portage,   the  height   of  land was about midway, and a down  grade from there both ways.    Small  fiat cars carrying from three to four  tons were used, and mules were the  motive power.   Hauling up from the'  lake  end   to ,-the_ start of the  down  grade, the mule's single,tree was unhooked,  the  car ran on  by its own  weight, and the mule trotted behind,  thc driver regulating the speed by a  chain brake.   -The brake chains were  old and in" poor shape, "though new  ones had been ordered but never supplied.    Sitting at dinner one day at  the fine residence at the upper end of  thc Portage, with a number of passengers waiting for a steamer up the  river, a thundering ^noise was heard.  I  dashed out, and there,  round the  bend, came a heavily loaded'car at a  furious speed. In charge was a very  black French half-breed** with his hair  flying in the wind, twisting ihe_ brake  "with'all his might. But the chain had  broken, so his efforts were fruitless.  There was a neat gravel walk from  the track right up to our front door,  and as -poor Beardie came to this and  noted the big warehouse doors were  shut beyond," he gave a wild glance  round, and, noting me,, jumped the  car and sli-tj. right up the gravel walk,  his feetfhitting the_step hard. He was *  half unconscious with-the excitement  and shock, ���������' and .on " examination I  found' his legs and stern full of gravel pellets, --which; as there "was no  resid.ent doctor, I extracted. with a  pocket ;knifeasing a log for an operating table..  'ihe car hit^some loose freight on  the "track and dashed through the  doors of the warehouse. ' -This fortunately was piled^up with flour at  that end, so this acted as a buffer and  the damage was not' extensive. Oa  reporting the matter, new chains were  promptly supplied, so there was soma  good came" out of the accident. Mr.  Mule had quietly trotted back to his  stable at the lower end.' *  Retribution  It was rather righteous retribution  on this man, as some time before this  when  he  had a -lot  of loose  freight .  piled  under  tarpaulins at  the  lower  end of thc Portage, I caught him with  both hands down to the elbows in a  big .firkin  of butter.    The .time was  about midnight, and his intention evidently Was to pull thc butter out and  fill up the firkin with rubbish, so that  it would not check short.    I well remember it was" flitting moonlight and  the   expressions' on   his   face   would  have made a good picture.    One was  murderous, then fear, and so on. Firkin and all, I marched him round to  a leather tepee "where we slept, woke  up the men, had his hands tied behind his back, and set a guard over  him until morning.    He kept begging  and praying me for silence and forgiveness. , I phoned the "chief (for one  of our clever mechanics had made a  telephone which actually worked, with  empty cans and wire), to -come over,  which he did in the 'morning.      We  gave the culprit a summary trial; deferred sentence was the verdict, and  a careful watch was to be kept on  him throughout-the summer.  While between his groans I was  extracting the gravel arid then using  a strong mixture 'of carbolic acid,  which no doubt smarted considerably,  I reminded him of his fall from honesty and said no doubt the accident  happened to him as a special punishment for his,crime. For some time  (after this he slept on h|s face, much  to the amusement of his comrades.  Like the cart transport, steamboating on the Saskatchewan had its day,  and was gradually replaced by rail,  the Canadian Pacific railway traversing the, prairies and the Qu'Appelle  and Long Lake running up to Prince  Albert.  The Hudson's Bay Company, with  thcir far-seeing vision, had sold otit  part of their interests in 1883 to a  transportation company, retaining,  however, thc right of first shipments  over all comers.

Consider Freight  Rates Reduction  Ottawa.���������Reductions in freight  rates were under consideration at  a private conference between the  Board of Railway Commissioners  and representatives of tiie Canadian Pacific, the Grand Trunk and  the Canadian National Railways.  Hon. I*. B. Carvell, chairman of  the Board of  Railway   Commissioners, has expressed the.view  that something must be done to  meet the present situation and is  hopeful that some immediate action will be taken as a result of  the conference,    In support of ������  reduction in freight rates, the view  Is taken that falling wages and  cheaper materials   have  reduced  operating costs.  Conference Interests China  tmtttmammmmmmt  China's Participation  in  Conference  On Disarmament to be Held in  Washington.

A large  number of prominent  Chinese have  been enrolled in these organizations  since the Pekin Government accepted  President Harding's invitation to send  a delegation to the United States capital.
