I   WEILERBRO:  "J  Victoria, B.C.  'Is  r  Remember to keep in mind' that  a Calico Ball comes off on'lhe' 17th  March.   .-..���������'.  Professor Alexander gave pome  entertaining lectures on "bumps"  in the Cumberland Flail last week  and Monday. It. is said he struck  the truth closely in reading the  characters of several prominent  residents.  According to a letter in  the Free  Press, Mr CI iff e of Comox takes exception to the reporting of the fact  that an  acetylene gas machine at-  the Lome Hotel exploded.   Yet the  item was given'jus- as any other hit  of news, and there'was nothing in  the truth of the matter  meant for,  nor  was,. derogatory to   Mr Cliffe.  .The machine simply blew up, and  spattered raw carbide on  all Hides.  That's all.  A la-ge number of friends   and  members of St. George.VPresbyter-  ian Church met on Sunday evening  to listen   to the last s?rm.oii  to be  preached  in  Cumberland   by ' Rev.  Mr Glassford.   The reverend gentle  man   was   attentively  listened   to,  and we have no doubt his  hearers'  will profit by the eloquent woids  which fell from his lips.   Mr Glass,  ford has been faithful and diligent  \x\ the discharge of  his duties,  being a good citizen.     His high character  and  integrity   have  won the  respect   of   the whole   community,  and   we   consider  that  the church  has   suffered  an   irremediable loss  through his retirement.      We  join  with   the many friends  in wishing  Mrs  Glasc-f.-rd  a  complete restoration to health, and  that  they both  may be long spared t������> continue the  good work wherever  their ioi  may  he cast, ers' Union.  Nanaimo, 22-^-Friday's Gazette  contains following announcements:  Local legislature will be summoned  April 2nd instead of March. In  changing the date of meeting of the  ast-embly, i'ivo as the reason that  time is required to,get business in  sha4 e lor meeting.

''  ..   London,    Feb.   23���������Canada "had  formally protested, to the Imperial  Government   against  (he  appointment <f  U.S.  Senators .Lodge and  Turner on' the Alaska Commission.  Fernie, Feb. 21���������The local'Union'  gave a s'reet parade this afternoon  in which there were 408 miners in  the line of march. After the parade'  the  business men   were invited to  assemble-in Union. Halt..where .the  most important  grievances  of .the  miners were presented 10  them by  the Un.on.     The parade was given  to disprove the contention of Corn-  pan v that but 18 per cent, em payees,-were Union n.et).   An open vo e  was. taken and   not a- single  man  claimed   to have been intimidated  or to have quit work from being in  fear of the Union, and the action of  the Union in calling the men was  endorsed.     There is no present indications  of a   settlement, on  the  contrar}*",  everything   points  to a  long  and   bitter  struggle,   and   if  neither  the   Government   or   any  other outside agency intervenes the  Crow's Nest- mines will remain idle  for a long time.    The miners to the  main Union and Non-Union agree  and are prepared and determined  not   to  leturn   to  work until the  abuses they complain of have been  removed. _  Owing, to the strike the  smelters in  the  upper country are  unable to secure a*sufficient s-upply  of coke.    It's not at all improbable  that  coke   may  be   shipped   from  Union Bay to meet the demands.  Nanaimo, Feb, 23.���������A public  meeting was called by the Mayor  last Thursday to discuss the proposed Inland' Railway and B.C.  mining. The meeting was well attended but it ended in anything  but harmony/ The socialists who  captured the meeting <?poke strongly  against both proposals, and resolution in support of the proposal to  aid the railway was lost. Mr Hawthorn wait's amendment declaring  for a railway via Nanaimo, Lakes  and Alberni with its terminus at  Nanaimo was carried by a vote of  74 to 32.  Nanaimo, Feb. 23���������During the  past week no new development i  the mines strike situation have occurred. So far as known, however,  the. tension was somewhat relieved  on Saturday when the management  sent for the Executive of the Min������  place lasting several hours, as a result, amass "meeting will be held  to-day to receive the report of "the 1  Executive. This is the first meeting that has taken place since the  arrival of President Howard from  San Francisco, anVLthe'rerults will  be awaited with much interest. Mr  Howard will address the men at the  meeting. ,A11 kind's of stories ate in  .circulation, the,most prominent  being,that one of the demands made  by the men is to have Thos. Russell,  ,the new superintendent, dismissed  f i om tthe service. Upon inquiring  into this phase it is found that great  'irritation has followed.Mr Russell's  decision to do away with the 25cts.  a day paid to the safety lamps men,'  and he is blamed for affecting this  change in the workings of those  mines. It is difficult t-j learn de-  finately whether his dismissal is  absolutely-demanded or. not.  Nanaimo, Feb. 23, 6 p.m.���������Situation here has assumed more serious state. Men met in mass meet-  ingthis morning.' Statement from  Company described state "of coal  market and in'effect refused demands of men. Pointed out that  in stopping work without notice  agreement between Union and Company had been broken. Proposition that-President Howard should  meet Union apparently iiot(.favoi-  able. After over three "hours' dis-,  cussion meeting terminated. No  information as to decision reached  being available except that work  was not to be resumed at present.  Even ye*, however, a strike has not  been declared.  *** *������ **SV  5"*"*^^   If ^k  CAN'T  3   ���������   /dJ  MATCH  THIS  r.  ���������"^THOUGH we "can't match this in  Double-Breasted Coats, we have]  everything that is beautiful and useful ih  this popular , st>le��������� and ,others can't  match our prices.

February. 16th:  A long interview took  Present���������Aids. Bate, McFadyen,  Short, Daniels and Kilpatrick. Aid  Bate took t he chair.  Minutes read and adopted.'  Communications ��������� From H. P.  Pullen, asking that Crown Bank be  exemptea*. from taxation for five  years, upon their instituting a  branch in town.    Laid on table.  From Prow  Secretary  notifying  Council of confirmation of appointments of Aid. Kilpatrick and Mr A  H. Peacey, as Licence Commission-  ers.    Laid on table.  From Dr Gillespie .declining to  act as- health officer at salary offered, and resigning his office. Laid  over until next night of meeting.  From -Miss A. Ramsay asking for  u>e of City Hall for a Boy's Club.  Laid-on table.  Accounts���������From F. Anley, fee  for services as auditor, $10. Referred to Finance Committee.  From L. W. Nunns, postage supplied, $1.50  Deferred business.  Re Mr Pullen's request.     Moved  Aid, Short, seconded  Aid. Daniels,  that a by-law be enacted to exempt  taxation.    Carried.  Re Licence Board. Aid. Short  mentioned that he thought Aid.  Kilpatrick was ineligible on account of being the owner of certain  premises now holding a wholesale  licence.  Council satisfying themselves  that this did not render him ineligible, the Prov. Secy's letter was  received and filed.  Miss Ramsay's communication  was then dealt with, and it was  decided to allow the use of the  room on two nights every week,  but that any other engagement on  these nights would have the preference, and the permit-sion to 1 e  withdrawn at anytime the Board  saw fit.  Scales���������Moved Aid. Daniel", seconded Aid Short, that fee fur weigh  ing be 25c. for all.  Aid. Bate asked0 Aid. McFadyen  tb take his place as he desired to  give his views on the matter. He  then said .that it would be inadvisable to raise the price for scale  tickets. Only a few farmers availed themselves of the low rate by-  buying 50 tickets in advance. Moat  others still paid 25c. and if the  price were made uniform, the farmers could easily raise the price, of  produce,to make up the difference,  and the consumer would suffer.''  Aid.  Daniels'  wished   to   know  whether���������following Aid. (Bate's line  ot" argument���������farmers who got the  tickets at the low rate, charged cbr-T  respondingly. lets for their produce?  No, they did not!    By all  meanb-  tben, if one had to pay25c. make-  all pay the same.       v .''.���������.  Aid.   Short    agreed, with   Aid.  Daniels.     If a,farmer could put 50  or 100 loads in the market atone  time, he could bette-i afford to pay  25c, than the one who only placed  a few, yet these were the ones who  were.protected, when in justice the  small farmer should be the one.  Aid. Kilpatrick wanted lees to  remain as they were.  Vote resulted in a tie. For motion���������Aids. Short and Dnniels ;  against���������Kilpatrick and M'Fadyen  Chairman Bate casting vote against  tbe motion thus defeating it.  Aid. Short gave notice of motion  to introduce an amendment to the  Pound By-Law at next meeting.  Mr Hornal, city scavenger, asked  about soil buckets in places where  these were worn out and the tenants refusing to replace them, re-  fetring him to their landlord.  Upon enquiry, it transpired that   .  Mr Nunns, city clc-rk, was the landlord   in question,   and   he   lost no  time in  promising to see that the  necessary utensils were provided.  Aid. Daniels made a complaint  about Aid. Kilpatric-k's wagons and  sleighs blocking up the 2nd Street.  His attention had been directed to  the. matter by ethers, and some accident might ensue.  Aid. Kilpatrick said that in all  large cities, empty wagons were allowed on tbe street.  Aid. Daniels reiterated his statement that the street was blocked.  Aid. McFadyen corroborated this  and Aid. Kilpatrick promised to  abate the evil.  Moved   Aid.   Daniels,   seconded  Aid.  Short,   that 100 dog  tags be  purchased.    Carried.  Council adjourned.  Mr R. Grant returned last Friday  from a visit to Nanaimo. He  brought with him a pair of fine  black horses to use in the logging  camp.  nf{  "C '���������MM  ���������������  ������  '������  IT'S  $ .5   S  BY W.

TTo   .stroked  ,hcr 'hair   caressingly,  - nnd looked tenderly at her.    She did  not notice it;   she  was  trembling   in  'every nerve. ,'Now that she had him  to take her place, her strength seemed   leave  her.  "Sit down," he begged,' and put  her ' in nn arm-chair. , "Be quiet  now;  vou have been  very  brave,   I.u-  ' cie."   * ���������  lie nodded to her, and went into  ���������the. bedroom, tlie door of which had  remained   open.  It was not long before mademoiselle, also appeared. "She is awaking," she ci;icd. "Thank God, it was  only a fainting fit! Heavens, how  often I used'to" faint as a girl! And  \a make such a noise about it!  Pes rest,you rang as if there were a  fire or a murder. I shall never forget the-trouble it gave me,  jamais!"  "1 do not want-her--to----.seo.-me  here," Lucie now heard her lover say;  '.'and',.perhaps " it would "be better/  too. if she did not find either' mademoiselle or ��������� the I-Tcrr Baron . here  when she wakes. -.The less one makes  of these attacks the better, for the  patient," he' continued.  "Put some one must be here," said  mademoiselle; going up to .the doctor, "and. I know her maid is never  allowed  to come here unless called."  "I will stay here, .Alfred," said  .Jjticie. "I will act as if I had'just  come;  or���������"  "That is" the best," .said he. "If  Frail von Lowen should be very restless, send for me." ,  ^he stepped out into the corridor  with him.  "What a frightful struggle she must  I.avo had. before she came to that!"  whispered the young girl, leaning  s.ga,inst him.  ��������� "She is- ��������� nervous and fanciful,  child," * he returned,"*'coolly; "that  kind  of  thing happens  oftener     than  -you imagine. Only take care that  she does not think too much about  this foolish attempt,, of hers; don't  be embarrassed; talk -.to her' ab'out  other things. You .'must help me  sometimes, Lucie." He kissed her  tenderly   oh   the   forehead,   and- bade  ��������� her go *. back. "Make everything  quiet as ' soon as possible," he  begged.  X.ucie sat more than a quarter of  an - hour in the deep arm-chair in  the boudoir, looking through- the  open door of the bedroom at Frau  von Lowcn's bed. They had all, in  accordance with the doctor's orders,  left the-' room.' On a little table  stood some wine and refreshments  in readiness. They had shut ono. of  the windows again, and now it looked only as if some tired child were  sleeping sweetly, watched over carefully. The twilight of the spring  evening filled the room, and without.  in .the garden, the nightingales were  singing.'  Hortense did not move; but Lucie  paw ' that she lay there with her  large eyes wide open; perhaps she  did not yet know what had happened. At last ���������she''sat: up in bed, and"  looked round, her hands on her temples; then she began to look for  something.  "Hortense," cried the young girl,  "may'Icome in"? You were sleeping  so sweetly, ��������� I did not want to wake  vou. I have been waiting here o.  long ..while to thank you for your  kindness yesterday."  Whil<  :>    ��������� saying-  th os  e      wore  Is,  she  drew  near  tho  bod,   and   took  lior-  tense's  hand:     r.

You  k  now mo  ���������Lucie  Walter.1  "    She  FO.L down on the edge of the bed,  and laid, her arm on the .shoulder of  the sick woman. "My dear, good  Hortense,"'  she said,  -warmly.  "Vou!" said tlie young woman,  svvd. pushed her arm away. "What  are .you pretending about, and why  do you tell me lies? Why did you  come to-day?"  "It was well that I came to-day,  IJorlqnsc."  "Very well, as one may take it;  tout I beg you will nor. trouble yourself any further. But just tell me  what time it was when you were  shown in?"  "It was about half past five."-  *'And what time is it now?"  "It  is  half past seven."  "Who announced you? Who came  first to  my  bedside?"  "No one; I found you so," returned the young girl, emphasizing each  word.  "Vou?"  "Yes,   I,   Hortense."  "And  the others?"  "They think we are talking tog-ether."  Hortense was silent. "Go," she  said;, "forget it. 1 can not be  thankful; it is too bitter, what you  "have done to  me."  "No,  returned  the  young girl,,,although Plortense turned away, buried her face in the pillow,, and clutched at her hair with  her slender hands. She remained  quietly seated, - and began to talk  softly. "It. was really wonderful  that'    we should  ��������� meet     yester  day, Hortense. It has brought back  my childhood so vividly to me. Po  you remember,, pet, papa's little  monkey? What a good little thing it  was, and how droll it used to look  in the little goat-cart. I could  pain't 1������he place where we buried him  with so many tears. Do you remember how we once fell down, and you  got such a cut on your forehead  that my father had to sew it, up?  You clung so to my mother, and I  cried so -bitterly with you. Ah, my  dear mother! I can never forget her,  'she was so good and kind! Many a  time at night'when I.lie in bed,  it seems to me before I go to sleep,  that I feel her soft hand stroking my  forehead, and then I have , to cry.  Do you ever feel that?" ���������  Hortense turned rourid. "No,',' she  said, doubling her fist. "It makes me  enraged to think of my mother, for  she was -worried to death and into  the grave, and I was deceived about  the only person who ever really,-lov-  ed me."  "Hortense, a fiancee should not  speak so," ,said the young girl, reproachfully.  "Fiancee?" she laughed, scornfully. "Fiancee?"  Lucie stopped, quite frightened.  "Give me a glass of wine," begged  the young baroness. Lucie brought  it to her and she , emptied it at a  draught. "Do you" know the old  Baroness Lubeska?" she asked.  "That horrid person, that all the  children run after, because she is almost always drunk?"  "Yes; she got in the habit- of it  because her husband deserted her.  Is it not better to be dead than to  come to that. I have not be-.Mi able  to get that woman out of my  thoughts since yesterday. Give me  half a glass more, Lucie."  "No."        . * '   '   .    *  "How careful you are! But do me  another favor: there was an envelope  here; read me one of the letters in  it. You must have taken it away."  "Yes; here it is," said Lucie, and  she took it out of her pocket. "I  thought it was a farewell to your  grandfather."  "Of course, so it was; ������������������but:a letter  to me was inclosed in it from him���������  to keep for my father; there, read  it���������it'is   the white heavy paper."  "To-morrow, Hortense. It will  only excite you again.  "  '���������Read," she said, in a commanding  voice.  And Lucie read:  "Dearest Hortense,���������I cannot * express'to you how unutterably hard  it is for me to write these few  lines to you. You know how I love  you, and will understand the pain  it gives me, and will believe that  nothing but the ' stetnest necessity  obliges me to give you back your  promise. Wo must part, Hortense.  Why?.'Your-father.. I dare not tell  his daughter of all the bitter debts  he has incurred, and yet I almost  believe you are not unprepared. , My  position you will understand���������"  "Stop,"-interrupted Hortense.  "My poor, dear Hortense!" sobbed  Lucie, kneeling down at the side of  the bed.  "Before this I could cry, too,"  murmured the young baroness.  "But get up! Ach! I am so tired of  it all.- If you had only let me  sleep! All that I have, loved have  decieved me, have rewarded me with  hatred and ingratitude. They have  taught me suspicion and contempt."  Lucie sobbed silently. She thought  of the bright, sunny child that  used to hang so lovingly on her  father's neck, that used to talk so  much about her handsome papa, and  she saw before her a pale, despairing  woman who longed for death on account of this same father.  "I am very tired," moaned Hortense.  "Sleep-���������rest on," begged the  young girl, and arranged the pillows.  "Give me your hand, "Lucie; stay  by me till I fall asleep. Come again  to-morrow; your voice quiets me.  No, no; you shall not watch here;  Minna can sit in there on the sofa."  She held the little girlish hand fast  in hers. "Do not cry," she said  once more. "Can you understand me  now?*' Then after a pause, -when  Lucie thought she had been asleep  some time: "It has done me so much  Rood to talk to you, Lucie. Do you  remember the nightingales used to  sing just so sweetly in your garden?"  She spoke a few more words in a  low tone, half intelligibly, and at  last she fell  asleep.  Lucie slipped out on tiptoe; the  maid sat in an armchair by the  f;alon door. Lucie gave her the necessary directions, sent her in,  went home.

Gradually the conviction is forced that  Dodd's Kidney Pills cure once and for  all. One more proof of this is furnished by John J. McDonald, a well  known farmer, now residing at 130  Lianglois "avenue. Five years ago he  was troubled with Rheumatism and  Dropsy. , Vor two years he suffered  terribly, and the different 'medicines  he tried failed to relieve him. His  legs were swollen and the pains he  suffered were most acute. He used  Pond's Kidney Pills, was cured, and  his cure caused quite a sensation at  the.  time.  "Mr. McDonald, speaking of his cure  recently,  says :  " I have had no return of my  trouble up to the present, and I am  not anxious for any.

Cutter  (rj   Copyright, 1001, by Elizabeth R. Cutter  When I took the omnibus" for St. Germain des Pres at'the riace Clichy and  mounted to the imperiale,  there were  alreads*   seated-  there   two   priests,   a  bareheaded   working   woman   with   a  , filet of  marketing in' her  hands, two  "'" schoolboys  carrying  the   usual   black  portfolios under their arms and au old  gentleman who was reading the Petit  /Journal.    Next to the latter I found a  place.  A moment later the omnibus stopped  again, and I heard the voice of one of  my., country women exclaiming nervously, "I1'never'can climb up that ladder, never!"  Then a girl spoke.   "Oh, do try, Aunt  -Martha!    They say the outside  sgats  ..arc so pleasant."  .    "Is   it���������do you  think'it's  perfectly  ���������   safe, Mr. Henley?" asked the anxious  voice.''     ' '  "Perfectly safe," came a reassuring  masculine echo, and there was a half  second's pause,  in* which,  I suppose,  Aunt Martha^ tried to ascend and failed,  for the conductor broke in lmpa-  ( tiently: "J3n voiture!   En voiture!   LJne  .'' place en'.bas!   Ncuf places en haut!"  , "Take the seat inside,  Miss Percy,  do,"   urged   the   man's   voice.     "Your.  .     niece and I can go on top."  The omnibus started forward, and  ,. two Americans came up outside, a very  pretty girl, elegantly dressed, followed  by a tall, athletic looking man. They  seated themselves directly behind me,  and she exclaimed:  ��������������������������� <t "How delightful it is up here! And  ���������what a shame that we've been lu Paris  ty������'o "weeks without ever taking the  bus! Isn't it too bad that Aunt Martha  Rtayed down below?"    . '-  < "On the contrary," he replied, "I find  It extremely agreeable to be alone with  you for ;once. I've been trying for  days to have a word with you by yourself, but your aunt is a perfect wonder  atckeeping. the party in strict triangular  , shape whenever I go out with yon. To-  ' day I purposely urged her going inside  so that I could talk with you in peace  up here on top."  - "Now I understand what is meant by  'wickedness in high places,' " retorted  the girl playfully.  ��������� "Don't try to put me off, Miss Ware,  for it's no use. You know perfectly  well that I love you and"���������  "Sh-sh! What are you thinking of,  Mr. Heuley? You certainly aren't going' to make love to me here, on the  top of an omnibus, right before. all  these people?"  "Why not?" "he persisted. "They  don't any of them understand English.  Look at that ferame 'de menage and  those boys and the priest. They're all  F(reuch. We are. as safe here as if we  were iu the parlor at home."  "But that girl behind us''���������she lowered her voice as she spoke���������"do" you  think she looks French?"  "A Parisian unmistakably," he answered. "She doesn't understand a  word we say." -  I' a Parisichne���������I, who had been  away from New England only six  ��������� months and who thought my nationality, as plain as if it were stamped upon  me in red, white and blue! It was a  shock certainly, but the blow was softened somewhat by the compliment to  my clothes. Aren't the Parisiennes  considered the best dressed women in  the world?  But the mistake bad touched my  Puritan conscience as well as my  feminine pride. I was listening to a  conversation manifestly not intended  for my ears. Ought I to get down  from the omnibus? That would be  quixotic surely. I could not afford to  be late to my appointment for the  Bake of two perfect strangers who  would never know of my delicate kindness to them. Ought I to speak out  frankly and say, "I beg your pardon,  but I understand everything you are  saying?" That'would be embarrassing  for us all and really cruel to Mr. Henley, who had been trying for so long to  propose. When a man is in such  straits that he has to make love on the  top of an omnibus, he ought not to he  wantonly interrupted. It was plainly  ' my duty to keep quiet.  "But young French girls don't go  : out without a chaperon," objected Miss  I Ware. "She is all alone." '���������- '  { "Not at all." he answered. "There's  .' her father right beside her reading the  ' newspaper."  '    I trembled with fear.    It seemed as  if my neighbor must have understood  that, but a glance showed him to be  happily    ignorant    of   the    American  daughter so suddenly thrust upon him.  He was reading a serial story in the  ��������� Tetit Journal perfectly unconscious of  ! the romance going on behind his back.  |    "Well,  haven't you anything to say  to me?" asked the young man.  "What  can   I say?   'I   don't think  you've known me long enough to ask  such a question."  "Not long enough!" he repeated,  "I've known you all summer."  '  ,  "Nine days on the steamer," she  counted - deliberately, "two weeks in  London and two weeks here. It's easy  to see that you didn't study arithmetic  in your youth." ��������� ; '  "You 'are trifling" with me," he exclaimed. "It doesn't take ten years to  find out that you're in love when you  meet the right person."  "Yes. but ,what is it to be In love?"  she asked. '"And how'are you to be  ���������ure that you've met the rU'ht person?  In the old fairy story one knew the  true prince b3r the halo around, his  head, but I don't see any halo about  you.' I see a,young man in a straw  hat sitting ou the top of a bus. It's  not romantic in the least.".  "Well, never mind if it Isn't romantic,"! he retorted. "Who cares about  love being romantic if it's real? Love  doesn't need to be announced by a  band of music and brought In on a silver platter. ; It's much bigger and  more serviceable than that.- It's for  all times and 'occasions, and It means  just as much on the top of an omnibus  as anywhere else." She made no answer, and after a moment of silence  he spoke again, "Is there any rule  about when and where a man should  propose?"'     r  She was -silent. We were passing  the opera house at this moment, and  the busy line of the boulevards, came  In sight. The omnibus stopped In  front of Cook's , office on" the , corner,  aud the" two priests got down, but no  one else came up to take their places.  More than' half the broad Avenue de  1'Opera was behind us before the  3roung man-asked once more: ,.  -. "You know I could make you happy,  don't you?" .. "  Still she did not answer.  ."Don't you?"  "There's the Rue de rEclieller she  exclaimed quickly. "We must get down'  here for the Hotel Normandie."  "Don't stir," ho said peremptorily.  "Your,aunt won't get out without us,  and you and I are going to the head of  the line. We must settle this question  once for all."  I was delighted at this decision. The  head of the line was my destination  also, and now I knew that I would  hear the end of the story. I no longer  questioned whether \ ought to announce myself or get dowm from the  bus. All my scruples had vanished in  the absorbing interest of the situation.  What woman ever, left a novel In the  middle of a proposal? ���������*  The omnibus drew up slowly at the'  corner of the Theatre Francais, and a  crowd of waiting people came out, into  the street from the station under the  trees. We could hear .the 'conductor  calling off the numbers "Un,' deux,  trois,-en1 voiture! Quatre, cinq, six, en  voiture!" as the vehicle filled up with  passengers. "Complet!" was called at  last, and the controller screamed to the  outside seats, "Correspondences sur  1'lmperlale?" There were no transfers, tand the horses started toward the  Rue de Rohan.  "Well, Miss-Ware, is it 'Yes' or  'No?'" asked Mr. Henley as we moved  on.  "I don't know," she answered hesitatingly. "I like you- very mueh, but  I'm in doubt, and when people are in  love they don't doubt. Therefore I  can't be in love."  "How very disagreeable logical women are!" he retorted.  "I can't decide my whole life in ft  minute," she went on. "I "must have  time to reflect."  "You may reflect," he replied, "al!  the way from here to St. Germain des  Pres. I'll keep still so that you can  think better." . The omnibus was Jolting across the court of the Louvre as  he spoke.  "But I can't think at all when you  Bit there devouring me with your big  eyes," she complained.  "Then I'll look the other way," he  said."  "I don't know why It Is, but whenever any one makes love to me"���������.  She broke off as if abashed at the implication of her words.  "Go on," he said. "I'm not such a  fool as to think that I'm the only man  who ever made love to you."  "Well, then, there's a mocking little  evil spirit Inside of me that always  rises up and makes fun of love. I  thovight when the right man came he  would silence that voice, but I hear  It speaking now."  "Don't listen to It," be answered  promptly. "You say yourself it's an  evil spirit."  Neither spoke for a moment, and  then she remarked as if thinking  aloud:  "I shouldn't make at all a good wife.  I   hate  sewing and  fussing  about a  house."  "Is it a question of a housekeeper?"  "I can't even cook oatmeal"���������  "Have I asked you to cook for me?"  "And I have a great many faults."  "I hope so.   I detest angels."  There was another pause.    Then as  we rounded the corner on to the Boulevard   St.  Germain   she   asked,   half  I couldn't help admiring the young  man's spirit. After an acquaintance of  only one-half hour I was almost ready  to say "Yes" to him myself. Unfortunately he had chosen Miss Helen.

It  is   more   enjoyable  thaii-  a .two  or  three hours'   walk,   because-  it   furnishes  that  spice   of   adventure  'demanded     by     every    true    walker.. '  Moreover, it- affords unlimited oppor-,  tunities    for '  broadening" one's  view  and becoming  better   acquainted witli.  one's..country and,its'people.  In the' first place,  some idea should;  be   formed ��������� as to the length of. 'the--  trip.      I   think   that ' for   a   first  trip-,  twenty miles is  far  anough.     An  ordinary  girl  can   probably   cover  this,  distanco iii two  or three  days. From,  this  first  trip  an  estimate    of    one's;  walking,   abilities    may      be  gained,  from  which  the  length of  other trips,  may be computed. ,        '    f '  The destination is the next thing to.  be considered.' It is best to appoint  this a town or village, from, which a-  traiu may bo taken home, __ as the?  walkers will probably be too'fatigued  at' tho end of their' jburney' to wish  to retrace their steps.' Then,, a'map  of the country through which they  will walk,, showing roads, may bo-  secured. Oh it'.the roads to" be followed by them should be clearly  marke;!, and ��������� afterwards followed'  without deviation. " ���������<   ���������  Then comes tho important question  of expense.   Tf  ihc finances,   of    the-  party      are      wi.-.ely   managed,   thesse  should  not'"be   very   high.     To    this-  end, a treasurer may be selected, who.  shall   liave   complete   control   of    the-  common      purse.       Some  discrimina���������  ,tion should,be. used  in her ^eleclion,-  and ' the girl, who knows something*  about  the "expenditure'of   money'   to  the best purpose should be chosen.   ,  As'for the items    of expense,   ,thev  most ^important  one' is that of lodg-^'  ing   for  the  nisrht,   which   should    be-  procured before starting.   'As for provisions, ,if   the   walkers -do   not    ob���������.  ���������ject   to   encumbering   themselves with ���������  them,  this  item .need  not- be  constrl���������.  ered.'   ' Pail road   fare,   however,   must,  be     provided.     Laslly, each member' '  of  the  party  generally  pays' to    the*  treasurer a settled amount to    meet,  such   emergencies, as   may   arise ���������   by  ���������_th,e way. - '  Then we may proceed to the choos-  '  ing    'of  members   of   the   party., '.On  this  matter, I believe the success   of  -  the trip  rests. -   For   it docs  not re-'  .quire much insight  to see that    the  delicate     girl,   the   girl   who   cannot-  *walkcfar, and the. girl who at certain '  times   refuses to' make herself  agreeable,    cannot    make    desirable    companions.  ' However, after passing "over these,  it'will yet be "easy  to find*  nine or ten girls who  will be glad to.  bear  their   share   of  the  expense . fox*-  the pleasure of the trip.    -- .     - , ���������  Tlicn we may turn to the question  of' dress. "With' a pair of "stout,  shoes, a walking- skirt, a dark waist.  and a durable hat, most girls catx  make themselves comfortable. Waterproofs and I'inibrqllas, however, ;ire  really necessary, ������ and should be  brought, along.-  Now. after all arrangements ar������  completed and the trip begun. no  one but the walker can know 1 he delight with which she greets the yel->  low-brown road winding off through -  the'valleys, over country bridges, and'  losing itself around some hill, whence-  it wanders off into a country 'as unknown to her as any English shire..  So, she cultivates a love of travel,,  which may some day lead her to tha  Antipodes.  I will give one hint as to the time-  for such a trip. I believe that autumn is the ideal season for walking-  long distances. ��������� The roads are better, then than in spring and winter,,  and the sun less hot than in summer. , Besides this consideration,  .there is the fact, that at no other1  time is the country so beautiful: for,  with the flaming autumn woods  stretching far beyond one on *", all  sides, "tho, goldo.nrod and asters clustering around tho fences, and the-  blue-grey have over all, -what other  landscape could 'afford such a feast of  color?  Further,   if   any   of   the   parly   pos*  sess a camera, or a talent for skelfil  ing,   it  should     by  mean.'  he  brought along,and the   lands-nnrs and  groups -.taken 'by ..the' way   will   keep  the memory - of  the  trip    ��������� green  years.���������Pixi,   in Toronto Globe.  for  A Tsilfl of a. Smile.  'Tuesday night, as she smiled. it  was a contagious -affair, and the. audience returned it, writes Charles  Raymond in -The 'Toronto Star.  Those who have heard her .���������before  thought she had never done bettor,  and from all part-; of the building  came the applause demanding un encore. So she>smiles and sings again,  and wo are sure she is, happy, for  who could be so-blithe with her own  heart not free from care? Free from  care! That, woman's husband loves  her, and they say she loves him, but  they cannot agree, some way or other, so she Is supporting, herself and  a boy just by that smile and her  voice. In her room is a letter which-  tells her that her husband is about  to institute proceedings for the possession  of, the child.  The sorrow hid in (he smile before  the audience, but. in the quire of this  room she reads and re-roads the letter, and cries as she  reads  it.  The tears wash away the rouge..

"You don't mind, do you?' You are  '���������'nlwavs so jolly and, chummy."  She smiled a little, dcprecatiugly.  There were times when somehow she  wished Hetherington did not iind her  so jollv and chummy, though these  .times had nothing tb do with the brier  wood pipe. The comfortable, house was  . hers in effect, and she, the friendless  aud 'kinless kindergartner, must of  course'have felt it good fortune to be  saved the lot,of the boarding house and  given  the companionship  of  pleasant  ��������� and well set-up people: All the other  young women she knew told her oyer  ' and over again and reminded her that  she ought to be grateful for her mercies. ' '   , '  It is true that if Mn. Hetherington's  eldest daughter had not married and  gone to live iu a distant city and her  youngest had not died "she perhaps  would not have felt the need of a girlish presence hi the bouse enough to  take in Winifred. <  .- Winifred watched Hugh*' Hethcring--  ton lift his fine length and move across  ���������{he room after a light for his pipe. As  the match flare flickered, on his clean  features slie thought,   as any  woman  ' must'have, what a handsome fellow be  was. But Winnicthought also,that if  her own mouth had not been so big, her  tendency to freckle so hopeless'and the  tint of her hair so uncompromisingly  red Mrs. Hetheringlon might-not havo  liked her quite so well. Moreover, she  looked a bit older than Hugh, too,  though ��������� she had carefully figured out  that she, in fact, was a year younger.  But, then; Hugh's childhood .had  passed in the flush of pleasure and the  ' sunshine of affection, and hers?��������� She  ���������was too "humble to be sorry for herself  and too wise not to see in lhe worst  that had ever happened her the possibilities of still worse and thus be  thankful for the Providence that had  '���������- kept her in its hand;  But yet this evening she thought  more sharply .-thai).- usual of another  girl's symmetry, her gowns, her accomplishments,- her opportunities, all  the "things that are dear to tbe heart  of woman.   And why not?  Venus hcr-  "self was not irresistible until she put  on the right girdle. * Hugh had asked  her to help-in -comparing, some lists,  ' and  she  knew   very   well  that  every  ��������� minute of help she gave him this evening .was an extra minute for the other  "ii'l.  ."���������She bent her head oyer the papers  before her. for. the things she was  i.linking must steal into her face in  spite of herself.  . "Are you very tired?" said Ilether-  ington kindly, but yet altogether, impersonally. She raised her bead and  smiled. What was the uso? If it were  not this misery, it would be something  eise for a waif such as she. "Oh. not  at all," she said.  "I do not believe there is another  girl who would be as patient as you  are with all my tiresome stuff and  with me too. Even mother's endurance  gives out once in * a while, aud she  scolds about my den. If it weren't for  you, I don't-know what would happen.  If you're really not tired. 1 want to go  over these lists with you now, and then  I'm "off for the Kendrick reception.  Gertrude Stevenson will be there." he  said, a happy little smile playing about  his lips. "Seems to me she is getting  more beautiful every day. Don't you  think so?"  Hetherington did not even look at  her for his answer. He was indeed insisting' on being even chummier than  usual this evening, and Winifred bout  her head close over  the papers once  more.  "Of course." Hetherington went on,  "Gertrude is popular, very. Sillingtou  has a mint of money, too, but I don't  think she's the kind of girl who would  stoop to anything like that."  Winifred had to listen to that and  much more in snatches and monologues, and she was glad when at last  Hetherington left. There are times  when it is singularly harder to be  "chummy" than at others.  The next morning Hetherington had  gone when she came to breakfast,  something most unusual for him. In  the evening he did not ask her help.  He talked very little, and Mrs. Hetherington later said to her husband, "Can  it be that Hugh is not well?"  Her husband looked up retrospectively over his glasses.  "Maybe he's in love. Maybe he has  proposed to some girl, and she's turned  him down. Every young fellow has to  have a lesson or two. It won't hurt  him, I suppose."  "Oh. how can you talk so? I am sure  Hugh would not propose to a girl without talking to me about it first."  Whereupon Mr. Hetherington senior  smiled behind his paper and went on  reading. A long and comparatively serene matrimonial voyage had taught  him that arguments only fill the sails  with head winds.  Winirred herselr neither questioned  nor seemed to take-heed of Hugh's  moods. After several evenings he came  down and asked her once more to come  and help him. '  "What do you think, Winifred." he  said abruptly after awhile, "ought to be  the test of love?"  "T should think if some one loves you  all'the time, whether vou are fresh or  tired, pleasant or not pleasant,,successful or not."  "Fresh or tired, pleasant or not pleasant, successful ������-r not"��������� Then he  laughed a' little jarringly, she thought  "But-whiit do vriu know si bout it. after  ':i!17     Von   never   loved   like   that.   die*  .-yu?"  She looked at him with startled, almost guilty eyes, ami Hetherington had  ,-i queer' feeling ioi" having entered unwittingly into a sanctified presence.  ' He rose and walked around the room  .aimlessly for. a few minutes. Then he  said he had some nasty experiments to  make, and 'maybe she would not want  to stay.'although'he rather looked 'as  though'he would have liked to have  ,had her.        ' ' "  . But she left and then sat at her window watching his shadow move to and  fro :'is it fell against the.tre.es of the  garden. Suddenly she heard a spluttering explosion and a' strange guttural  cry. For a ghastly second she 'watched  the fitful leap of lights on the trees, but  his,shadow did not come back. Then  she grabbed her /water pitcher, full-  happily, and,the heavy rug on the floor  nnd ran into his room. She thing the  'door open Upon a thin lilur'of Uame aud  flickering tongues reaching',like dancing-imps here and there,in midair, and  through it all something like a huddled  figure on the floor. - Up went the water  ahead of herself and over herself and  then the rug over the figure, and with a  strength she hardly dared to think  could . be in ^ler tense muscle's she  dragged ,it out toward the hall. Then,  wrapping her skirts .nronnd herself  with a quick turn, she tore down the  burning portieres that "screened ' the  laboratory from the den, and, finding  the hose attached to. the hydrant, she  set the.spray over herself and over the  room.  By this time the  others  had come.  But it was really all over.' She stag  gered out to look at Hugh.   His-eyes  were closed, his face blackened.   ,  ."Is ho dead? Gl.,p is be dead?" she  said weakly.-  Then, covering - her face . with her  burned hand's as if fearing the answer, she sank down, in a white heap  beside him.  TheVuext day Hugh, who,-though  singed and stunned, had been little  hurt, sat beside her and held her bandaged hands. '. ' . -  Ho watched the play of her features  as he talked to her, and it seemed to  him like watching an unfolding flower.  He- caught himself wondering again  and again at some newly discovered  charm- What deep, fine eyes! What a  singularly sweet and unaffected .smile!  What an intimate gentleness in her  voice!  ,  Mrs. Hetherington said one morning:  "How charming you are in that pale  vellow wrapper! You are quite trans-'  formed." And she passed her hand tenderly over the girl who had saved her  last child to her.  Hugh said.'"She is Cinderella, and  the fairy godmother has shaken the  magic tree over her."  And he did not know just yet that  the magic which was touching her and  him. too. was older even than fairy  godmothers.  He spent his spare moments now trying to please her. even as sho had once  tried to please him. He told her over  aud over again that it was her wit and  her speed and her dear burned hands  that saved his life after his stupidity  with the ether and the collodion.  "Ah. no." she would say. "It was an  .inspiration. I am not a bit brave of  myself."  "Do you remember," he said one day,  "your test of'love-V"-  She blushed a little this time.   "You  never told me." be went ou. "whether  you ever loved any one that way or  not."  She did not answer.  "Do you think that you could?"  He thought he saw a smile flit over  the face, bent away from him though  it was,  and  he took  her hands that  wore now healed, though still scarred  a little. . ��������� .  She raised her head and looked at  him. and Hetherington suddenly knelt  down before her and kissed her hands,  and then he drew her head down to  him and kissed her on the lips.  .  An   African   Niprlit.  From the bush rose the death scream  of some animal in the grip of its pursuer, jackals yelped in the distance or  the prolonged howl of a hyena broke  out close at hand. A wakeful "boy"  imitated it derisively, the snores gave  place to a renewed murmur of talk, the  askari flung another log on the smoldering fire. Kot always did the land lie  silent. I have known sleep made difficult by the antics of hundreds of zebra,  who thudded hither and thither on the  plain like diminutive cavalry and cried  in a succession of little barks, worried,  perhaps, by finding the camp between  them and their accustomed watering  place. In some districts when on wet  nights rain had swamped the fires, a  zoological garden of "questing beasts"  was apt to foregather round the tents.  Thus hyenas, jackals, three lions and a  brace of hippopotami contributed intimately to one seance that I wot of.  and, as" the darkness was too thick' for  vision, that night' yielded but scanty  peace. Hippo are at all times awkward  things to get raveled up in the tent  ropes.���������Cornhill Magazine.  AS SEEN BY A BRITO>.  HOW THE LONDON EXPRESS MAN SAW  THE DOMINION OF CANADA.

Our train drew up with  that rumble and roar of wheels ^ and  ringing of bells that only the Canadian Pacific JL.aiiway can make,, and  in another minute the "Mayor and the  Board of Trade of Brandon City were  trying to grasp the various names of  the  party.  ���������KJX '** *���������*  They tell you out here that no one-  can help being- prosperous and happy  who will 'work. "Come along in your  tho'-sands," is the cry of the Northwest to the little island across the  seas, which its broad territories could  swallow up many times: "Work,  land,'futures for you all, and there  arc millions of untrodden acres, out  West." .      '  Wo "drove out across the- wheat  fields where'the harvest hands' make  i;2 a week, with food and board besides, andrwhere .many a struggling  .fanner of the Old Country reaps a  field'of half a .mile .square. ��������� We,heard  great stories not only of farmers who '  came out with some capital, but of  laborers who emigrated from -Eng-'  land with a few dollars in their pocket,' and now- own hundreds of acres.  Theic. are no small farms 'in j\iani7  toba. A suction ������������������ of 'land is a mile  square, and a man who docs not possess half a section is ��������� not' considered  at all; and 3 GO acres is the smallest*  amount worked.

Fur ' as"' the eye could  reach to the horizon���������and in iMani-  toba you can see. a long way���������lav al  great'ocean of wheat stirred into  gentle waves-by a cp'ol wind. Wooden farmhouses and barns seemed l almost,engulfed in this sea of grain,  and the only relief for the eye was  the,black loam of a sunned fallow,-  where the rich'soil was resting from  its labor. Down the stubble a milo  away a reaper' was turning h;.s 0 team  of' four horses, carving a slice eight  feet broad from t'ho solid block of  gold -"        ', '" .  He showed a white gleam of teeth  in a face bronzed alniost black; with  the sun as he'came near, and we halloed him 'a cheery  greeting.  "Where  from?''  ������������������Zummcrset," came back the answer.  And in another minute, he was explaining to us in the soft-tongue'd  dialect "of Wcssex how he came out  to Manitoba ten years ago with two  "dollars in his pocket. His story is  typical of many others. The first  four years, he said, were a hard  time: and if he had been able to do  so he would have gone homo again  in his first vcar, home to the dairy  farm at Yeovil where he tended cows  for eighteen   sh I lings  a  week.   ^  Fortunately for him. he "stuck  it," and after four years of work on  ether men's farms he had saved,  enough to buy a quarter section of  his own. He built his log cabin, and  plowed thirty acres in the fall. . But  in the winter he worked in the lumber woods with his team of horses;  then flitted back ib his land and sowed his wheat in the spring, working  as a hired hand again during the  summer.  131 t in September *ke reaped his own  Jiarve-st. and his thiity , acres of  wheat brought him in eleven dollars  fore-, ery acre. In the autumn he  p'owed sixty acies, and paid down  the first instalment for another quarter .se-x-tion of ���������Ian 1; till by degrees he  came to his present prosperity���������the  proud owner of '4S0 acres of > land,  with 3G0 acrest of the finest wheat  that a man  could  wish  to  see.  The average cost of plowing, sowing, and Ini'rvesting an acre (;f land  amounts to sc.cn dollars: tlie average yield in "Manitoba this year .will  beat least twenty-five bus-heis to an  aero, and that means the farmer nets  neurlv seven dollars profit on each  acre. If Knglif-h farmers could ma .e  twenty-eight shillings profit on fwen-  ty-li\e bushels of wheat, we hhould  see twice as nuuji wheat grown in  our little island.  This year .Manitoba and the Northwest have two million and a half  aces in wheat nnd another million  and a. half in oats and barley. As  the yield .is high there will be over  fifty" million bushels of wheat to export. And this can be shipped at  the a erage price of twenty-five cents  ���������or a shilling���������a bushel to Liverpool.  But a great deal of nonsense is  talked a.bo-t free grants of land in  Manitoba. All the best land is occupied, or in the hands of land companies; and any immigrant who comes  to Winnipeg on the idea that the Government of Manitoba will give him a  .profitable free grant' of 160. a-res had  better remain at home. In the neighborhood of Brandon���������the centre of  the wheat belt which extends some  three hundred miles west of Winnipeg  into Assiniboia���������good land costs  from twenty to nearly thirty dollars  an acre,    a    dollar being    four shil.l-  ings. But" twenty miles and more  from the railway there is still lan'd  to be had at six to ten dollais an  acre; and'labor is so scarce and  wages so high that a,hard-working  man will, like our. "Zummersetshire" ,  friend, save enoiv;h in a few years';-,-  time to b"y 160 acres, and farm it  by degrees till he can set up en his  own..  ff you want yom. free grant of first-  c'a.ss land you must'go info the Far '  WesL. into Assiniboia. Saskatchewan,  and Alberta; and even there vou will  with difliculty escape the' American.  Vast, tracts of land ha\ e been bought  bv flip Yankee speculatots, who are  turning it over at aii immense protit;  and the genuine American farmer is  following, in  their  wake.  Canada is,' in fact,, booming: and  in twenty years' time there is no  reason why she should not produce a  billion bushels of wheat. She grows,  after all, a mere bagatelle to-day,  not more than could be, or5, indeed,  was but recently' produced between  the Thames' and Carlisle. Manitoba  alone could produce ten times , as,  much, and the only-reason that  the wheat fields seem vast to-day is  that they-are massed together in one  small.belt of territory. Bven .more-  than labor, capital and brains are  needed in Canada to-day And if,English capital-and brains do not come  'soon-,'the richest agricultural heritage  that the Empire possesses will pass:  into alien hands. ��������� .

None ot* Her Friends Relieved SUe   Could  Recover *nd Her Cune Has Excited  Great Interest,.  From the Courier, Trenton,, On^.  The case of Mrs. Robert! Young,  of  Stanley  street,  Trenton,  is  one that  has     caused      great    deal'     of    talk  among     those    who    are    acquainted  with her.    Mrs.  Young  is  now  in her  seventy-eighth year, and is quite vigorous   for   a    woman of    that     age.  Three  years   ago    she  took   a    chill,  which   appeared^ to  affect     her  whole  system.      Her lower limbs and   body  swelled   to   such  an extent    that she  could ' scarcely    move , them.      Her  stomach   became 'so' disqrd'crcd    that  she could not lie in bed, and for two  years she had to be bolstered'up day  anil    night. -    The  chills, which   were  apparently the  original  catise  of  the  trouble,  became chronic,  and affected  ,ter two   or ' three times'a week, -and  after  a  chill  her  skin   would  turn    a  dark  brown  color.   Her  friends     did  not    believe    she could * recover, r but  nevertheless  did   all  they  could     for  her.      Three doctors tried their skill,  but io no purpose, and the strongest  consolation    they    could offer   was :  "Well, you know we'are all growing  old.'.'      Several advertised   medicines  were   then given    her,  but with    no'  hotter results.    In August,  .1 901,Mrs.  Young had become .so bad  that  ,her  daughter-in-law had to'come from    a  distance to nurse her.      She brought'  with     her '  some   .Dr.   Williams'   Pink  Tills, and   persuaded the old lady to  begin, their   use.   In  the course  of   a  few'weeks   there   could  be 'no   doubt  that 'they , were helping ���������her,   and  the  .doctor    advised cont'inuing their use.  and now/after'using them  for   some  months,  the swelling that'had affected her limbs  is gone;  the    chills    ho  longer bother her; her.stomach is restored  to  its  normal  condition,    and  the, heart fluttering that had made.it  ric-''e.-)Sary  to-bolster her   up  in     bed  has also  disappeared.'   It is no  wonder-that the  case  has   excited "-much  comment', and the editor oi" the Courier,   who  has (.personally  investigated  it,  can''vouch     for the . facts   related  al-ovo.'   -Such    marvellous     cures  i.s  this  prove  Dr.   Williams'    Pink   Pills  to be  the best medicine    offered    the  public,  today,   and  all  those, who  are  ailing should'" promptly give then:    a  trial.

CHEMICAL FERTILIZERS.  ' * As the use of chemical fertilizers  "is now becoming general in British  Columbia a.few woids in.regard io  their use mayrnoi be ami**-?,  Thn plant,food' they contain, be-  ini������ vin  highlv concentrated fornix,  necessitating, for u������e com para lve.y  'small amounts, leads many to'think  th.it   they   aie' simply   stimulant.--,  not. food.    If. ho,\ ever, tbe elements  that   enter   into   the-  struc\ure   of  plant life, are alone, taken into con-  ��������� .aid era.ion, we will readily see that  such an opinion is entirely erroneous.    This brings us down to three  elements���������potash, phosphoric acid  a lid nitrogen, comprising, as will be  readily seen, but a very Email proportion   of     the   crops   produced.  These essentials in their crude   or  insoluble state are not  available to  the growing plant and only becomes  so by the processes  of decompositions being slowly changed   by nature into soluble or available forms.  If  soils   are continuously cropped,  these available forms   may be ex- j  hausted more rapidly than  provided   naturally.     Crops   then   being  -unable   to  obtain   but   limited    a-  mounts,   suffer   fiom   hunger   and,  cannot thrive.   By tbe use of chemical fertilizers,  potash,  pho.-ph*>ric  acid and nitrogen can  be  returned  to'the soil in practically the same  4,-' forms in which nat.ure'supplies them  to. the .growing, plants,'enabling the  plan*.B when climatic and soil conditions   are  favourable,   to   attain  their  fullest development.     These  fertilizers should be so distributed  :    through the soil  about the plants  that the greatest possible number of  rootlets may find  tl em, care being  taken that the pure fertilizers do not  come in contact with root.; or e-tem.  That plants may derive tlie  fullest  ,   benefit from the use of potash and  phosphoric, acid it is necessary that  the  first rootlets  sent out  by  the  growing plant or germinating seed  should find them within easy reach  in readily available forms.    About  80 per cent, of the entire amount of  potash and phosphoric acid absorbed, in taken up during the first half  of tbe growing period, clearly showing  how   necpssary it is that they  should have early supplies.     Even  with nitrogen  in its most soluble  and   immediaJ.cly available   forms,  buch   as  nitrate of soda, early ap-  ' pH..at-ions aru lo t.e   .ecunmended  In early sprint* the nitrogen as con  taincd  in   our  soils   is   practically  dormant, and only becomes  available as the soils are warmed by the  suuVrays.'     Early applications of  available nitrogen will often give a  crop a good start-, making an 'excellent stand of vigorous plants, befoie  those   untreated   may   have-   made  any' piogre-s   whatever,,   also  fre-  quently.hastening maturity of crops.  This also,is true of pho-phor.c acid.  That these fertilizer's can  be profitably ived-is clearly shown.by many  farmers   in   Biitish Columbia- who  are now applying them to.,"11 crops,  such  as .grasses, cereals, roots and  fruits.' "Soils almost barren, being of  the poorest nature, are no.v p.oduc-  ing crops  that  can scarcely-be ex-  celled,'-'due entirely  to  the^ use " of /  chemical fertilizers, and in many instances at far less expense thin by  any other method of manuring, that  could be employed.    The smalt per  centageof potash,  phosphoric acid  aid   i it r������-get*., contained in  stable  manure, makes it necessary tb ������p  ply far larger' quantities  than can  be- produ-ed oiv  the' majn.i'.y   of  NOTICE    IS    I-IEREIJV GIVEN that  i',vo.months after date application will be  made by tbe  undersigned   to the  Chief  Commissioner of Lands and   Works   for  permission to purchase forty acres   more  'or less situate on'tbe west side of Observatory  Inlet  in   Cassiar  District  which  may be,  described   as   commencing at a  make  marked   "Pacific  Northern N.E.
