At Park pavilion Friday night a large  crowd booed aud rooted in turn at Commercial League basketball games, all of  which were fast fixtures, but more in tbe  class of rugby than basketbal.

Creston Motors lost to Pharmacy 29-23. and the Cardinals downed  Imperial Groceteria 22-17.  The opener between High Reps, and  Review was hotly contested, with both  teams showing goad floor work with the  orange and black having the edge in  the shooting. 7 Review displayed their  old form and the High girls had to fight  their utmost to secure a final score of  20-16. The newspaper squad were equal  at floor play but lacked th e scoring pun eh.  Marteiio garnerdd nine of the sixteen  points, but Edith Swain and Irene Bourdon failed to locate the basket.

The High School were  faster than their opponents and used  their speed to advantage. Nell Payne  and Ruby Palmer were the pick of the  winners. Ruth Hare was far to rough,  continually? going to the ...floor with the  ball to avoid losing possession.

Mster  Creston was very deeply saddened at  the weekend when the news reached here  Saturday evening of the tragic death of  Fred S. Ryckman who lost his life late  that afternoon, when the auto in which  he was driving was struck by a Great  Northern freight train at Eureka, Montana, through which place he had to pass  while looking after his official duties as  indian agent with some of the Indians on  the Tobacco Plains reserve. Travelling  with him was indian constable Burroughs  who was very seriously injured.  The late Fred Ryckman was in his  forty-eighth year, and was born at Wat-  erdown* Ontario, coming west with his  parents in 1901, when they located In  Cranbrook, three years later moving to  Creston where they engaged in fruit  ranching on the place now owned by K.  E. Paulson, and at which deceased was a  frequent visitor and became well known  to Creston people.  Until about 1911 deceased was in the  employ of the C.F.R. latterly as a trainman, and about 24 years ago entered  the Dominion government service *as  indian constable, later he was assistant  agent, and in 1931 was named indian  agent for the Kootenays,' succeeding the  late E. A. Small.  Deceased was married at Fort Steele  in 1922 to Miss Doris Kershaw, who survives, along with two sons and two  daughters. During the first dozen years  of his service with the department he  made his home at Fort Steele, but since  his marriage he has been a resident of  Cranbrook. The .funeral takes place at  Cranbrook Thursday, and will be under  the direction of the Masonic order.  Over a span of almost a quarter century Fred Ryckman travelled East Kootenay looking after his official duties and  the quite unanimous opinion of hiswards,  the indians, as well as all others, is that  he was an exceptionally capable,  conscientious,' an"d,tthorough, .-public, official,  and the same s"plendid;''triaits~ character-.  jzed bis activities in the .communities in  which he resided. ~ He was a past master  of North Star  Masonic Lodge at Fort  Steele; and' in 1933-34 was- Masonic district deputy grand master for East Kootenay, in which capacity he still further  strengthened  many   friendships by his  fine personal qualities as well as the enthusiasm and efficiendy displayed in this  capacity.   The same fine qualities featured his work in the B.C.   branch of the  Native Sons of Canada in which  he wa**  an ardent worker.  In the passing of Fred Ryckman the  civil service has lost a capable administrator; from J_a<?t Kootenay has gone one  who typified the best in useful Canadian  citizenship; and in splendid measure reflected the fine traditions of the fraternal  society he served so capably. And all  these fine characteristics were the more  in evidence in his home life. In the  death of one so highly and widely esteemed words are altogether inadequate  to expres the sympathy extended Mrs.  Ryckman and the young family in their  great bereavement.

A strong flour tbat goes Sartber*  for &ltyour Raking  The Trade Agreement  About all that can he said at this juncture in support of the Canada-  United States trade agreement signed at Washington on Friday, Nov. 15, is  that it is a step in the right direction and should .be a prelude to further  concessions in the interests of a freer flow of trade and commerce between  two great neighboring and friendly countries.  Both the former Canadian administration and the newly-elected Dominion government are deserving of commendation and congratulation for  their respective shares in the negotiations which, culminated in a pact to  promote greater commercial intercourse between two States, geographically  and ethnologically designed for close relationships.  Insofar, however, as judgment can be pronounced on the tangible benefits to be derived by the citizens of the Western Canadian prairie provinces  as a result of the agreement, that is a verdict which, must await results  demonstrable after the pact has been in operation for awhile, and perhaps,  for some considerable time.  This is a statement which cannot be emphasized too strongly. For it  must be borne in mind that the benefits of a reciprocal commercial agreement cannot be reaped immediately the gates are flung open; nor can the  maximum exchange of commodities, for which concessions have been granted, be realized in the earlier stages of the operations of an agreement.  There are good reasons for this. The amount of the duty reductions  involved is by no means the only factor which determines the quantity and  value of the goods exchanged between the co-operating signatories. There  must be an available supply to meet a demand at the time the demand requires it. The demand must exist to take care of the supply. Trade practices and seasonal exigencies are contingencies which have to be reckoned  with. New financial arrangements have to be made when commodities are  diverted into new channels of trade. Existing stocks may have to be  liquidated.   New methods of packing and shipping may be involved.  Then, too, it should also be pointed out that a number of the commodities on which duties have been reduced under the agreement are subjected to quota restrictions and these will have some bearing in limiting the  benefits to be derived.  These are only a few of the factors involved in the diversion of trade  over new routes or in developing a trickle into a broad stream. There are  others, and because of this, the "Western Canadian producer must expect to  wait awhile before he is able to reap enhanced prices for the products he  expects to sell in a new market and, by the same token, the consumer cannot hope to be able to purchase overnight goods imported under a newly  signed agreement at a great deal less than the price he has been accustomed  to pay.  Unquestionably one of the most important concessions to Western  Canadian agriculture is the reduction of the duty on live cattle exported to  the United Staters. This is one of the items, however, on which, a quota  restriction is placed. The lowering of the duty will provide a needed outlet for a considerable number of cattle but, on the other hand, many cattle  raisers, who have been almost driven out of the business in the past two  or three years on account of drought conditions, will not be in a position  to take advantage of the new market for some time.  While Western Canadian consumers will undoubtedly benefit by reduction of tariff on a number of commodities importable from the U.S.A., It  should not necessarily be assumed that the benefit will be immediate on all  articles covered by the agreement or even, in some cases, to the full extent  of the reduction in duty. For example, it has already been announced by  the radio dealers* association in Winnipeg that the lowered duty on radios  will not result in reduction of price to the Canadian purchaser because  radios sold in this country are made in Canada "and are considerably  cheaper than the American models plus duty."  These statements are not made with any intent to belittle the agreement, the efforts of the governments who have had a hand in the pact or  the ultimate results which may ensue as a result of the Insertion of the thin  end of the wedge, but they are made in the hope that over-optimism as to  immediate results will not result in disappointment.       ���������  No matter what the operation of thia first agreement may bring in tho  way of benefits to Western Canadian producers of exports and consumers of  imports, the important thing is that it paves the way for further concessions and, it is to be hoped, in the not far distant futui-e.  It might also well be pointed out that there are some indications that  the operation of this pioneer pact may provo to be more beneficial than the  more cautious commentators anticipate. Tho daily press reported that  eastern Canadian manufacturers are apprehensive and, on the other side of  the international boundary a number of interests, fearful of the effects of  new Canadian imports, are planning to lodge vigorous protests at Washington.   Straws show which way tho wind is blowing.  This would indicate tliat the new agreement may be pitchforked into  the political arena in tho United States and may bo a casus helium in the  next national elections in that country, with what results remains to bo  seen. It is comforting to know that President Roosevelt has stated he believes the agreement will double the trn.de between the two countries within  a couple of years and it may reasonably bo expected that ho will defend his  action rather than receclo from the position he has taken.  A New Ship Elevator  Will Be Capable Of Handling Vessels  Of il,O0������ Tons  A ship elevator is being constructed near Rothehsee, Germany, about  eight \*4nd a half miles north of  Madeburg, where the Midland canal  crosses the River Elbe by a large  aqueduct.  The difference between the level  of the water of the canal and of the  river varies from about 31 feet at  high tide to nearly 56 feet at low.  This new elevator will resemble the  famous ship elevator at Niederfinow  in so far that it will be able to accommodate ships of 11,000 tons, but  otherwise represents a different  type of construction.  While the Niederfinow elevator  rises 210 feet above the earth's surface, the new construction near Roth.-  ensee will be built deep in the ground.  Instead of the water trough which  carries the ships being borne up and  down on wire-pulleys, here it will  rest on two floats, each 30 to 96  feet, which are propelled by hydraulic pressure, and move up and  down in shafts 210 feet deep.  The shafts, which have now been  completed, stand over 150 feet apart  and are each 33 feet thick with cast-  iron interior walls, reinforced with  concrete. Pillars 60 feet high carry  the water through, and, like tho  Niederfinow elevator, the whole  structure rests on an enormous concrete caisson.  Canadian Book Contest  \W>;  SING A SONG  OF DIXIE!

In Primitive State  Life Insurance  Says   Indians   Of  James   Bay  Area  Have Changed Little In Past  Centuries  Despite three centuries of missionary and other contacts -with the  white race, one group of Canadian Indians to-day was reported much the  same as it was 1,000 years ago.  Dr. Truman Michelson, Smithsonian Institute ethnologist, found last  summer that the James Bay Indians  in the northern part of Ontario have  changed their language, customs,  folklore and mythology little during  the past eight or 10 centuries.  He said they probably are nearer  than any other Indians to the type  of primitive Algonquins who peopled  eastern North America long before  the white man arrived.

In Blue Danube  The famous Danube river is drying  up���������as a result of drought unprecedented for this time of year.  The Danube and Sava, which  meet under the walls of Belgrade, are  now lower than for more than 50  years. In many places -people can  wade across them.  All  navigation   on  tho   Sava  haa I  been abandoned and many ships aro  stranded   on   sand   banks.   On   the  Danube only small vessels of less than  four feet draught can pass.

Companies Have A Mission To Perform That Is Vital To The Future  The Canadian Life Insurance Officers' Association is "the biggest of  the big interests," but that ia a reason for pride and not apology, Finance Minister Charles "Dunning told  members attending the 42nd annual  meeting of the association at Toronto.   Mr. Dunning spoke briefly.  Representing assets of $2,500,000,-  000, and acting on behalf of 3,500,-  000 policy-holders life insurance men  have a duty of trusteeship to perform that is vital to the future of  Canada, Mr. Dunning asserted.  "There is scarcely a big interest in  this country," he remarked, "that is  not in reality an intricate system of  trusteeship. Without you, and the  trusteeship of $2,500,000,000 which  you represent, Canada would be in a  vastly different place than it is today."  Big interests must not be regarded as sinister just because they -were  big, said Mr. Dunning, in urging insurance officials to stress their trusteeship to the people.  t8MMM__a__-WB_WW-M8J8*M8M8****"***^^  As one gets nearer the earth's  magnetic poles, the pull on the compass needle becomes weaker.

Ottawa.���������It was the intention of  the government to. appoint a royal  commission to , investigate Canada's  penitentiary system, Hon. Ernest  Ieapointe, minister of Justice, stated,  but plans for setting up the commission have not reached a stage where  any announcement could be made.  Report of the Ontario attorney-  general on the case of David Meisner, serving aw15-year "sentence for  the LabattT'kidnapping,'-was being  studied by departmental legal experts, Mr. Lapointe said, and he  would not expect to be in a position  to announce his decision for several  days.  Speculation as to the fate of the  Canadian wheat board and the policy  to be adopted by the government toward disposal of the wheat surplus  still lacks any official background  and Mr. Lapointe said there was nothing to announce in this respect.  It has been strongly rumored that  John I. McFarland, chairman of the  board, would be replaced by James  R. Murray, vice-president and general  manager of the Alberta "Pacific wheat  pool.  With the death of Hon. Charles  Murphy of Ottawa the prime minister has a vacancy to fill in the senate and several names have been  prominently mentioned. These include  Prank O'Connor and W. T. Kernahan  of Toronto, John Gleeson, Ottawa, R.  M. Burns, London, and J. J. McCann,  member-elect for South Renfrew.  A seat must be found for Hon. C.  A. Dunning, minister of finance, and  it has been repeatedly rumored that  Ontario would furnish it. Appointment of Mr. McCann to the senate  would open up South Renfrew.  Peace Efforts  France And Britain Endeavor To End  Conflict'In Ethiopia  Geneva.���������The belief persisted in international circles that France and  Great Britain are making determined  efforts to end the conflict between  Ethiopia and Italy by conciliation and  saw evidence of this in the broadcast  by Premier Laval, of France, of his  appeal for national support.  In Italian quarters it was agreed  the best chance for halting the war  is through a direct agreement between Mussolini and Emperor Haile  Selassie, which is admittedly difficult.  The Paris newspaper L'Oeuvre said  it had learned iri reliable quarters  Great Britain has offered to serve as  intermediary in peace talks between  Italy and Ethiopia.  The League of Nations' general  staff of experts met to examine the  general sanctions situation with the  projected addition of an oil-embargo  to the war penalties.  TO BE ROYAL HOSTESS  Find Lost Mine  Rich  Would Abolish Senate  Copeland   Mine   In   Northern  Ontario Believed Located  Hudson, Ont. ��������� The word .went  around in this western Ontario mining district that the log lost Copeland mine, a mine that promised  riches in the early years of the century, had been found.  The mine was abandoned and when  efforts were made to locate it recently it could not be found.  An accident some days ago revealed the Copeland. Two miners of the  nearby Sakoose gold mines tripped  over a rusty shovel while walking  through dense bush. The finding of  the shovel led to an extended search  of the area.   .  A quartz vein containing free gold  was uncovered. A plentiful sprinkling of rose quart?? In the vein indicated that the find, almost beyond  doubt, was the Copeland.

Discussions At Ottawa Expected To  Speed Up Activity  Ottawa, Ont.���������Airmail discussions  between representatives of Great Britain, the Irish Free State, Newfoundland and Canada concluded  and it is confidently expected that,  as a result of the conference, airmail,  activity inf Canada will be greatly  accelerated next year.  The main topic of discussion has  been the launching of a trans-Atlantic airmail service. Such a service  will require heavy mail subsidies and  a knotty problem to be solved is to  apportion the total subsidy among  Great Britain, the three Dominion as  well as the United States. So far as  the technical end of the service goes,  practically all of the woTk, so far as  tl_e empire is concerned, will have to  be done by Imperial Airways and the  interviews given out by the British  delegates clearly state that rapid  progress is being made. What Canada must decide is the extent and  nature of the land facilities which  will be' required and the contribution  which will be made to the support of  the   trans-Atlantic  service.  Oil Embargo  The  Working On Proposal  De Vaiera Makes New Move For  Irish Free State  Dublin, Irish Free State'.���������Eamon  de Vaiera, president of the Irish Free  State, made a new move for abolition  of the senate.

Italy Takes Very Seriously  Threat Of League  Rome.���������Premier Mussolini has recalled to the colors 100,000 soldiers  previously released for farm work,  and personally presented a $33,000,-  000 naval construction decree to the  chamber of deputies.  Italy was said to look very seriously upon the threat of a League of  Nations oil embargo. Sources near  the government said the country  might even resist forcibly an extension ..of league sanclapns.. They asserted Italy would be slowly strangled  if embargoes on coal "and oil were  added to the severe sanctions already  being applied. Gasoline prices rose to.  $1.08 a gallon.  Well informed circles said Italian  oil stocks probably were not large, as  statistics showed imports this year  had been only a little above normal.  Continuing his drive to overcome  the threatened shortage in fuel, the  premier will personally inaugurate  the work of the Chemical Corporation.  This group will be entrusted with  the duty of developing productions  of alcohol, wood alcohol and benzol,  the only native materials capable of  replacing imported petroleum products.  Italy's semi-official oil monopoly  was increased in size to facilitate a  full control of the market.  Unemployment   Commission   Is   Receiving Attention Of Premier King  Ottawa.���������Completion of the basic  details of a national unemployment  commission, a plank in the" Liberal  government's program, is understood  to be one of the activities which engaged the attention of Prime Minister Mackenzie King during his visit  to a Georgia seaside resort.  Some weeks ago the premier said  it would be the intention of the government to have the unemployment  commission practically completed before the Dominion-provincial conference which opens Dec. 9. The commission will be patterned somewhat  after the Canadian, patriotic fund  commission. It will be an honorary!  commission with a salaried execu- j  tive.  OIL TANKERS ARE  ORDERED TO RE  IN READINESS  Montreal.���������Masters of oil tankers  forming the large fleet owned by the  British admiralty and operated under  charter by commercial interests,, have  received orders to hold themselves  and their ships in readiness.

While the waterfront is familiar with  their true identity���������that of ships  owned by the royal navy���������they come  here as commercial vessels operated  by an oil company and handled  through regular steamship agents.  "Recently, when conditions iri the  Mediterranean became serious, orders  went out to the masters of these  tankers���������men of the Royal Naval reserve���������to hold their ships in readiness for any call that might be made  upon them at any time, according to  information gained here.  "Not required by the navy in the  ordinary course of events, the tankers are let out on charter and ply between a number of ports, including  those of the Dutch. East Indies. They  come to Montreal at various times  throughout the navigation season,  bringing oil and gasoline to local  wharves.  "They are subject to recall at any  time by the British admiralty, and in  a case where they would be required  on active service, would be used to  refuel ships of the royal navy at sea.  "The British admiralty owns a  large fleet of these oil tankers, numbering about 59 in all. Most of them  were built in 1917 and 1918. and were  used during the war. A few are of  later date, constructed in 1920, 1921  | and 1923.  "The tankers are in  command of  officers holding   rank   in   the Royal  1 Naval reserve."

Last year's crop of these trees  gave employment to approximately 150 men in the harvesting  and shipping. >  Now that permission has been  given to ship the defrosted apples,  figures are available in connection  with the quantity of apples in the  Okanagan that were endangered.  This is placed at 800,000 boxes,  250,000 of which were on the  trees and are a total loss. Of the  550,000 that were in boxes in the  orchards and other doubtful storage it is estimated 400,000 will be  saleable and in the Okanagan it  is hoped the grower will receive  as high as 35 cents a box.

B.C.,  FRIDAY, DEC.    6  HOME   BREW  A sort of preliminary report on  the possible damage to orchards  at Penticton in the severe weather  at the end of October has just  been given out by K. P. Mnrray,  the district horticulturist. Mr.  Murray is quite definite in stating  that so far as he can discover tbe  stone fruits are untouched, but he  is afraid the Bartlett pear crop  may have been endangered by the  cold weather Some damage is  showing, Mr. Murray states, not  on the bud itself but at the base  of, the bud. Flemish Beauty  pears have also been affected. On  some apple trees a peculiar stain  has appeared on the spur behind  the bud but he believes this will  probably clean up. His opinion  is that if the winter is not severe  the danger will not be great.  Over at Penticton where a new  postoffice was promised by the  late Bennett government, as in  the case of Creston, the board of  trade has been following up the  matter and recently had one of  its members who was in Ottawa  on other business look up the responsible department head to find  out just what was happening, or  likely to happen. He discovered  that a total of 37 new postoffices  had been promised in exactly the  same fashion as with Penticton  and Creston, but that up to the  present only seven had been proceeded with, all of which were  said to be urgently needed. The  delegate gathered that the new  government had not defin.tely  abandoned any of the projects  but that if action is to be had it  will be necessary to exert every  possible ounce of pressure. At  Penticton the municipal council  will join with the board of  trade  in a. drive to Se**" woi-lr mti/Io*.   mov  on the erection of the promised  structure.  The cutting and shipping of  Christmas trees is becoming quite  a late November and early December industry in East Kootenay  according to the Cranbrook Courier which announces that shipments commenced last week, and  the probability is that 50 or 60  carloads will be shipped.

Here are  some of the figures: We are told  that the average Canadian family  consumes 25.96 pounds of canned  milk in a year, 16.38 pounds of  cheese, and 97.93 pounds of sugar;  of salt for household uses we use  64 pounds per family per annum.  Pork including bacon amounts to  66.36 pounds per year and we  consume 100.4 dozen eggs yearly  to go along with the bacon. Beef  consumpton is 68.66 pounds  yearly, but Canadians are not big  consumers of lamb and mutton,  buying only 6.28 pounds per family per year, a very low quota  compared to Australia and New  Zealand where mutton consumption is nearly 100 pounds per  family.

Discloses Number, Size Of Sun, "Not  Previously  Identified  An astronomical star census, by a  new method reported to the National  Academy of Sciences at Charlottesville, Va., increases the theoretical  mathematical chances of life like that  on earth existing elsewhere in the  universe. I  This report does not discuss the  possibilities of life, but shows a larger  number of stars the .s"ze of our sun  than previously identified. Its new  star census fits directly into the  statistics by which astronomers have-  been calculating the chances that  there might be other suns with  planet families and evolutions just  just like ours.  Such an "accident" was once considered remote. Lately the almost  incredible multiplication in the estimated numbers of stars has caused  astronomers to consider tbe ���������'accident" of exact similarity more possible, and the census shows the existence of an increased number of  specific places where there might be  duplication.    .  The star count was made on  "dwarf" and "giant" stars by P. Van  de Kamp and A. N. Vyssotsky of the  Leaner McCormick observatory,  University of Virginia.  %  y*  ���������u.

"What are these feeble  Jews up to?" mockingly questioned  Sanballat before his brethren and the  army of Samaria. "Do they think  they can do it all in a day? Do they  expect to bring the stones to life out  of these heaps of rubbish ?" And To-  biah joined in the ridicule: "That  stone wall which tbey are building,"  he said, "will be broken down if a fox  tries to scale it." Their words were  repeated to Nehemiah, and he appealed to God to judge them.  The work progressed so rapidly,  for the people "had a mind to work,"  that the rebuilt walls soon attained  half their height.  Tbe secret of much of the failure in  the lives   of   men,   the   ground   for  much of the finest success, may easily  be   discovered   in   these   words, "the  people had a mind to work."    Great'  and worthwhile tasks are never very  easily done.    The City  of   God   does  not spring up over night like a mushroom.   Its building requires hard and  patient and faithful toiling, and the  man who is not -willing to give that  will not help greatly in the undertaking.   At the moment there is a great  shortage of the work by which men  earn their daily- bread, but there is  still plenty to do in that great enterprise of setting   up   God's   Kingdom  among men.    It is calling loudly for  men and women -who have a mind to  work.  . Many  Enemies   Conspire  Together  to Stop the Work, 4:7, 9, 11.    Common hatred has   a  wonderful power'  of uniting former foes, and the various peoples   of   the land, Arabians,  Ammonites,   Ashdodites,   as well  as  Sanballat and Tobbiah, were no exception.   When they learned that the  work of rebuilding the wall was progressing rapidly and that the breaks  were being filled in, they were greatly   angered.     They   feared   to   have  Jerusalem again a powerful political  centre,   but   greater  than  this   fear  was  their  hatred  of   the   religious  ideals   that   inspired   its   rebuilding.  They agreed to go to Jerusalem together, expecting  that  their  coming  would   terrify   the   timid,    confusion  would result, and  work would   stop.  They planned.to come so stealthily  as to take the Jews unawares.   But  Nehemiah posted   sentinels  day  and  night, and prayed, and "to pray and  watch is the road to victory."  Building    and   Battling,     4:13-23.  Forewarned, forearmed. Therefore, in  the lowest spaces  behind  the  walls  and   in   the   open   spaces, Nehemiah  placed people with arms, arrows for  use when the enemy was  at  a  distance, spears as the enemy drew near,  and swords for a hand-to-hand fight.  And when he beheld the enemy approaching in the distance, ho counseled fearless fight; but the enemy,  hearing that thoir plan for a sudden  attack was known to the Jews, retreated, and the latter resumed their  work   upon   tho   walls.     From   that  time   onward,   half   of   Nchcmlah's  bodyguard worked on tho  walls, and  half stood ready with spears, shields,  bows and coats of mall.   Back of the  builders woro   the   rulers,   ready   to  issue orders when the trumpot sounded an alarm.  Tho Wall Finished, 6:15-7:4. Despite all opposition from enemies and  all fears and weakness of workers,  tbo wall was completed in a -"horl*  spare of 52 days. With great rejoicing a solemn dedication was held,  which will bo our text next wook.  U.S. Scientist Will Be Buried  Chinese Monastery-  Alan Priest, curator of tbe Oriental department of the Metropolitan  museum has a newly completed tomb  waiting for him in the Buddhist monastery of Chief Tai Ssu, or the Monastery of the Ordaining Terrace.  Tbe religious structure, 25 m'les  from Peiping, dates back to the third  century A.D.  In the communal graveyard, dating  back to the Ming dynasty, Mr.  Priest has his tomb. It is the typical  Buddhistic form of shaped, gray  bricks, rising ten feet and looking not  unlike a creme de menthe bottle. It  is overshadowed by a great pagoda  and other shrines 400 years old. Giant  evergreen trees equally ancient give  shade.  At present the plaque on the tomb  merely carries the date of erection  in Chinese characters, 'but it might  some day include the character "Pu,,r  Mr,  Priests's name in Chinese.  In order to receive this special .  favor of resting in death among the  monks, the American made friends  with the chief abbott of Chieh Tai  Ssu, and in a minor way is considered  one of his followers.

Grim Curio For Sale  Cabinet Owned'by Notorious Poisoner  Has Sinister History  A large, highly-ornamented cabinet, with a sinister history, was on  view in London at Selfridge's recently.  It was given to Lucrezia Borgia,  the notorious "mass", poisoner of the  Renaissance period, by her brother,  Caesar. It contains dozens of secret  drawers in whicb Lucrezia is reputed  to have kept liqueurs and wines. The  most interesting feature, however, is  the key, in the handle of which. i3  hidden a needle which remained embedded in a deadly poison.  Lucrezia's enemies often attempted to open the cabinet, but their  ignorance of the existence of the  needle meant a swift death in terrible  agony.  The cabinet was later given by  Cardinal de Medici to Czar Alexander  I., and remained in the possession of  the House of Romanoff until 1917. It  was often admired by Rasputin.  It is now owned by Baron von  Landauor, and Is for sale at ������3,000.  "Tom proposed to me in his auto."*  "Indeed V*  "And I   refused  him   in   the  hospital."

Chill with promise of approaching  ���������winter, a low moaning, sighing wind  curled down from the snow peaked  Captain Mountains twenty miles west  to devil-dance with macabre glee in  the wide main street of the cowtown  of Rawhide.  Buckboard teams and saddle horses  lined the juniper hitchrails before  Sam Pickett's General Store, the  false fronted Half Moon Saloon, and  the three-story Trailend Hotel across  the street. With ears flapped and  muzzles lowered between their knees,  roans, mustangs, and bronks huddled  together in morose resignation to the  sting and nip of dust-swirls that now  and then all but hid them from.view.  Through broad, hazy windows of  the hotel lobby could, be seen the  meeting of Boone County cattlemen,  called by the owner of the modest  Star Loop Ranch, Link Fleming.  Every prairie-tanned . countenance  was etched in lines of gravity, every  ear attuned "to the earnest words of  the twenty-three year old speaker in  cowhide vest and work trousers who,  with sombrero tilted on his high  forehead, faced the crowd from the  elevation of a round-backed hickory  chair.  Pausing, Link let his brown eyes,  set wide apart and flecked with grey,  sweep slowly, hopefully over the  twenty-odd men who waited in absorbed interest. He lowered a sinewy  brown hand to his cartridge belt and  shifted the heavy forty-five to a new  -position on his thigh. Clearing his  throat,... he held up a paper and continued: v..  "Reckon every one of you got a  message like mine. It says here  Uncle Sam don't want us to graze  the foothill ranges any more. The  reason is, grass up there has got thin  and worn out, and never had the  chance for a comback. We've wiped  those ranges almost clean, until every  cow needs twelve or fifteen acres.  When you started runnin' beef in this  section, Seth Howland, what, acreage did a steer use up ?"  ��������� At the sudden focus of attention  on him, Howland, a lank, watery  eyed veteran of Texas trails, blinked  startledly. He rolled the inevitable  quid from ono hollow cheek to tho  other and back again. Seth swallowed and shifted weight.  "Feed was plentiful," he answered  finally. "Reckon yuh could say half  thc acroago'd do as much then as  now.   Maybe loss."  "And nobody tried to toll you  whether you could graze hero or thoro  or some other place.   Did they?"  A dozen pairs of oyos movod from  Seth to tho somewhat flushed --'ftco of  |TO  STOP ITCHING AND TO  ICLEAR   UP  Buzz -Hamilton, young manager of  his own and his absent sister Helen's  Triple H spread. Buzz removed the  drooping brownpag-ir cigarette froih  his mouth. It was plain from his  scornful tone and attitude that before coming here he had paused at  the Half Moon Saloon for liquid refreshment which always had the  effect of making him surly.  "Nobody ever could tell a Texan  man nothin'," Howland agreed with  pride. "The range was free In them  days, like it oughta be free now!"  Growls and nods proved the body  by this suggestion of rough and ready  resistance. So also was Honest John  Mulrooney, a heavily^built Irishman,  Fleming's neighbor. Marty Bush, the  local cattle agent, remained calm, as  did a few ;others.*** Fearful lest the  meeting get out of hand so that he  could not offer the plan for which he  had summoned them here, Link  sought some means 6f placating the  men.  "A year ago we talked of ways of  improving our range; making more  money out of steers. I suggested a  remedy which is even more important  to us now. What xrf need is permanent relief."      ' T  "Irrigation, I suppose," sneered  Hamilton, "you been cracked on it  ever since yuh came here." He swayed slightly as he faced the crowd.  "What's the use talkin' about a  scheme that's never ever been tried?  I say we got to fight for our rights,  or nobody'll even feel sorry for us!"  "Who says it's never been tried?"  Roper Kilgo spoke up good natured-  ly. "I'm for findin' out, in case irri-  gation'd be a good thing. Especially  'cause like Pieper told us, boys, we  can't fight the whole U.S. Army.  "Let's hear what Link's got to  say" he went on in a persuasive tone.  "I never thought much about water-  in' dead land, but Fleming's talked  it a long time, and I reckon he's gone  into it plumb thorough. Tells me he  got Soak Torney to draw up plans  for a scheme to irrigate the whole  valley.

"Anybody tried to stop up from  summerin' in them foothills, he's  plumb liable to get his neck stretched on the handiest blue piner** loudly declared Gyp Vaille.  "Boys," Link put in, "I don't like  this interference any better than  you do. But it won't solve our problems to hang anyone, or put up a  gunfight. Down at Ox "Draw they  held a necktie party with a government man for the .honored guest.

Ox Draw  cattle 3tayed out of the foothills last  summer, didn't they?"  "That's right." As everyone looked his way Otto Pieper, the scrawny  necked president of the Stockmen's  Bank, paled. He passed a bony hand  over bis shining bald head as if in  search of the hair that once had  warmed it, and caused his Adam's  apple to bob up and down in nervous  preparation for further speech.  "It'd   be    suicide,"    he    quavered.  "Kill   ten   agents   and 50 soldiers'll  come.   Hang the lot of 'em arid five  hundred'U be here next day. No, sir!"  Otto declared with emphasis.    "This  government   order   means   what   it  says.    Fleming is dead right about  that.   I stand for everything fair on  the range, but I'm for the American  flag, too!    That,  there,   uh,   striped  cross o' patriotism borne so fearlessly by a host of honest-meanin' pioneers like "ourselves.   Gents, would yuh  snap at the hand that's feedin', yuh ?  Then cut out this talk of hanging and  killing,"   Pieper    advised    earnestly.  "Abandon it, I say, and���������"  "Elect you to Congress!"  There was a laugh at Pieper's expense.   As it rippled and died Hamilton elbowed his way to the front of  the crowd until ho stood near burly,  heavy-jawed   Roper   Kilgo,.     Buzz's  hot words were calculated to inflame  others to hia own fiery impulsiveness.  "That's all right to talk big, but  what   will   it   get   yuh?    For years  thom foothills have been free.   Now  some politician decides wo got to be  kicked off.    Is that justice?    Why,  thoro wouldn't be a settlement ln tho  whole west if it wasn't for cattlemen!  "I say*," ho wont on, warmed to  alcoholic bitterness, "if government  agents como horo to enforce this,  lynch 'cm, Show who's boss. Are  we goin' to let thom eastom guys  starve our hordm and ruin mo? If  wo'ro goin* to loso everything anyhow, wo might as woll flghtl"  His words brought grim approval  from sovoral mon in a sorlos of low  muttered growls that ran around tho  hotel lobby. Watching closely, Link  saw hla own foreman, forthright  I Bustor Townsond, apparently swayed  Link felt a thrill of relief as the  words brought instant pause. He had  begun to fear from Roper's silence  that he was failing him. No particular friends, this was one of the  rare occasions on which they found  themselves working in harmony.  Fleming, had ridden to the Box 50  yesterday to wija this powerful support to his irrigation scheme���������at  which Kilgo, like most other ranchers,  had always scoffed. But the grazing order seemed to make him willing to reconsider, for he owned the  largest herd of beef cattle in Boone  County.  "Tell yuh, Link," Roper had declared after "the-visitor "outlined hurpur-  pose, "I'll do what I can to have the  boys think it over. Can't promise  they'll back it, but I guess we're all  willin* to be shown."  This was indeed a concession, and  it roused hope in the Star Loop  owner. "That's all I ask," he grinned  eagerly. "If you'll help get the men  in a receptive frame of mind I'll explain to them. If they reject it we  haven't lost anything. And if they  go in for it this country will be a  changed place!"  Kilgo had studied his visitor  shrewdly. "Then yuh don't think  irrigation is just a crazy, newfangled  idea?"  "Not at all. It'll not only save us  from ruin, hut it will make every  spread more prosperous than ever before.   Your place can benefit plenty."  "Well, I'm always open-minded to  a good thing. I'll get yuh a hearin',  Link. Reckon if Roper Kilgo says  ���������Boys, listen to this,' they'll listen.  Eh?"  It was true enough. He was the  most influential citizen of Boone  County���������and, Link had come to suspect, tho real power behind local  affairs. He was virtually county  boss, a czar, jealous of his prestige  and ruling with an iron fist. The man  who dared interfere with or oppose  Roper was doomed, to defeat. There  were whispered stories almost become logend, of certain persons ho  had marked with his wrath, and the  series of misfortunes which came  their way after that, Moro than one  small-rancher finally had sold out for  a pitiful sum, his acres and steers  becoming part of the Box GO while  the man himself hurriedly shook  Boone County dust from his boots  and novor was heard of again.  Roper's influence defied analysis:  It appeared to bo a strange combination of brute force and personal  magnetism. A number of ranchers  constantly owed him sums of money,  atlhough tho Stockmen's Bank existed to care for just such financial matters.

"It will mean that the  students won't just drag the pictures  home, put them aside and pay no  more attention to them. I feel that  the dime will be a sort of premium,  and I think that a deeper appreciation of art will be fostered this way."  At present the pictures are on exhibition at the university. There are  75 now framed and ready to be  rented. The collection contains pictures of the 17th and 18th century  masters, as well as some modern  cubist and impressionists. Among  the older pictures are Gainsborough's  "Portrait of Graham," Lawrence's  "Master Lampton," and Gilbert Stuart's "Portrait of Washington."  There are no Canadian reproductions, because the work of Canadian  artists are not reproduced in such  proportions. There are English,  French, Italian and one or two Spanish portraits.  The idea of renting pictures originated two years ago with a friend of  Prof. Longman at Brown University  in the United States.
