Letters to the Editor.
Mr Editor,���I received information,
from what I consider to be a reliable
source, that one of the parties who had
.signed the petition to close on Friday
had deliberately gone back on their
word. I would like to be assured as to
whether mv informant was correct or not
as it can scarcely be beheved that men
who pride themselves on their trustworthiness could so, far demean themselves.���Yours etc., Employee.
[We are not. aware that any firm in
tout, violated the petition to which our1
coirespondent refers, but if it was the
case no censure could be strong enough
for such .1 breach of faith for the sake
of a little pecuniary gain.���Ed.]
[held over tkoji last weekI
Mr Editor,���It   is   my desire  to say a
few   words   in   regard   to the  pie   social
��fiven   under  the   auspices of the River-
view Lodge, No. 166, at Courten.iy.    Upon ai riving  at Courtenay I   wended   my
way to the hall where the social was tc be
held and was very glad to find  the building well filled.     But after, glancing- over
the audience I was surprised  to find that
the   strictly  church-going   people,   who,
I thought,  were most  likely to  be there,
as the social was in aid of a worthy'cause,
were  absent..'   I   have been   thinking it
over since and mv opinion of the matter
is this that any and every person professing to be a   Protestant  should not only
attend   these   socials   in   aid   of   orphan
children   but   they should join   and help
along the True Blue Association.      Now
1 must say thnt those who did attend did
their part in the   financial   line,   as   pies
ranged from $2.50 to $5.00.      In  closing
I might say that I   am glad   to find that
Riverview Lodge is progressing and that
it is keeping up to its principle���"Protect
and care for the orphan children,"���I am,

Now, to cover  so much  : ground   in so short a time argued that  our  enemies   had a force much   larger  than   ours���������one  that we  could hardly  hope, unaided, to defeat  ' Therefore it was decided that as soon  as it stopped  raining'some of   the men  would scatter over the desert to find, if  possible, some trace of the missing cattle, while we woaid  send a   messenger  to some ranches t&at   lay on   the othor  side of   the river cv%ne 30 miles   below  ns, with   histructioaaa to bring back all  the men that could be mustered.    Cattlemen  are   usually ready to help each  other in cases of'  this kind, for no one  knows when   his owrj -turn   to require  help may come.    In tbis instance, too,  the  community of  ca$81e   thieves   had  long been a menace to the men on whom  v;e called.    AU of  them probably had  .suffered from this or another raid.  The rain ceased as suddenly as it began. The clouds parted asad were blown  in dark shreds across the s&y..

He had settled in a little town'  in the southern part of Kansas, where  ' he lived as an  immigrant from  New  ' Hampshire," and  lie7brought his  Yan-  ' kec sharpness with him, but as he  dealt fair and attended to his own  business he passed.   The/ only member  " of the family besides "Job and his wife  was Ike, a nephew whom Job had tak7  en to bring up, as he had no children  t .of his'own. Ike'was a typical New  England boy about''fifteen years old.  IIo had been brought up in one of the  coast villages of Maine and'had a great  love for. tho sea. _      '    '    >     -  'Job, like' the Tmajority of Yankee  farmers, ,was a firm'believer in cattle  and did most of his work with oxen.  One day he said to Ike, "Ike, if you'll  . take that pair of yearling steer's and  break, them to work, y ou ^can " have  'them." Ike was exceedingly well pleased at that and at once assumed charge'  of his new possessions. If, ever a pair  of young oxen were well taken care of,  they were. He groomed them as care-  ' ��������� fully.asthe horses, so that their, sleek  ,* coats shone as glossy as silk,, and he  was so kind With them that they, we're,  as gentle 'as sheep. He named fthein  Jack-and Billyl ' ���������   'o    .   ���������     / ���������<   ������  - X In'his "western ,borne Ike never forgot  - tho faroff ocean.   It had ^beon the one  " hope of his life to be a sailor, but- his  being   sent    west    had   destroyed , 'it.  When .his uncle gave him the steers to  ' break,' the- idea   came,, to   him   that'  though he could never, expect to* tread  the deck of his own ship be could use  ship - phrases' in  the education  of ..his'  oxen and. thus always be reminded of  , his own home beside the sea.   Thus it  was'that Jack and .'Billy were educat-  , '"ed to work,, "broken," totally ignorant  Jof the usual commands by. which oxen  are managed.'   "Gee" and  "haw," "git  up" and* "whoa"  had no meaning for  them  whatever.   It was, "haul "away"  '    and  "port"  and  "starboard','  and  "be-  . luy.r., "Stern .all" xwas back-.   The oxen  r* grew and waxed strong, and his uncle  . often remarked  that he never saw a  , team' that could  do ,more  work  than  '���������'those oxen and Ike.  No'one but Ike ev-  :    er thought of handling them. '       - <  -"  The,nearest neighbor to. the-Haines'  ' was Deacon" Merwin, a' good man aud  pillar of the church.   The good deacon  ' , saw . that   Ike's   yoke   of   oxen, were  workers, and si desire* came over him  to  possess  them.'- .He  offered  to ,buy  them   several   times,   but  Job  always  said - that, tbey   belonged   to Tke   ahd  were not for sale.' The deacon asked  Ike  if  he  would .sell' them,   but  met  with such an indignant refusal that he  felt angered,  but did not give up the  ' idea of possessing the cattle.   Finally  ho went to,Job and said:  "Neighbor 'Haines, if them cattle'U  work gooci every way- I'll give you  $400 for 'em. They're too much property for a boy likeTke to have, and it  is apt to create in him a bad sperrit  aud make him'feel above his elders."  "Well, I don't know, deacon. Tbe boy  sets a deal by them cattle, aud a promise is a promise. I gave them to him  if he would break 'era, and he has, so  I'm bound to keep niy part.".       r  "That's all true enough. Neighbor  Haines, but Ike's onlya boy, and then,  remember, $400 ain't offered every'day  - for a yoke of cattle. Why not sell me  these   and  give   him   another  pair  to.  .break;_that ,'ud do him jist as well?"  The deacon's $400 and. persuasions  finally weakened Job's scruples, and  he gave in. The deacon was to try  them,   aud   if  they   worked  all   right  .was to have them for $400. How to  tell Ike what he hade done was a poser  to his uncle. His aunt declared it a  downright moan piece of business and  told Job plainly what she thought of  him.  It was finally decided not to say  anything to Ike until after the sale had  . been made and Ihe cattle gone. In order that Ike might not be on hand to  see his pets sold he was given a holi-'  day and sent to spend the day at a  neighbor's, a "couple of miles away,  whore there was a boy of his age who  was a sort of chum of his. ;;  - The next.morning'Ike was off bright  and early, and thet deacon was on  hand shortly after.It would not be  fair to Job to say that he did not have  any misgivings. He would have backed out of the bargain at the least  chance, and he really hoped that, the  deacon Would not.be satisfied with  them. The oxen were brought out and  yoked to the cart without difficulty,  though the deacon remarked that they  did seem "kinder stoopid." Job and  the deacon climbed up into the cart.  "Gee up!"  The oxen turned their big eyes round  Inquiringly. "Gee up. there!" repeated  Job.  But they did not move a hoof.  "That don't appear like good breaking," remarked the deacon.  "They're broke all right," replied  Job. "Come, gee up, there!" At the  same time he gave each a prod with  the goad. In response to the prodding  the cattle walked off toward.the open  gate,  in  which   direction  their  heads  ���������   Then ,.Iob  But   they  be  as   well  happened to be turned.. Job did ,not  want them to go in the road, so' he  shouted out. "Hoy, hoy!" to turn them  around; but the oxen had no idea what  "hoy" meant, and so kept going  straight ahead. Job shouted louder  and struck Billy with the goad. They  quickened their gait into a trot and  turned out ,into tbe road,  shouted, "Whoa, whoa!"  did'not mind that either.  ' "They, don't appear to  broke as I reckoned on." remarked the  deacon as he stood in the cart and  viewed the proceedings.  "They're broke well enonjrh." replied  Job, rather nettled, "but I'm strnnge to  them. Nobody but Ike ever 'drove  them."   , ,  "Well, turn them about," said the  deacon.     t ',- '  But theyjpaid no heed to any command, and finally, exasperated.������������������ Job  struck them both with the goad, and  they started at a< full 'run down the  road. Clattery ,bang the'cart went,  and -both Mob 'and the , deacon ' were  compelled to hold on the" cart stakes to  prevent bciug bounced out of the cart. ���������  , "Stop 'em! Stop 'em!" shouted' the  deacon.    "I   want  to  get  out. . Whoa!  Whoa!"   Whoa,   you   varmints!",    But,  the oxen only tossed theirrheads and  ���������ran tho faster; "Stop .'em, can't yon?"  Job was downright mad by this time.  "Stop.'em*yourself, you old fool!" snapped he.'' "You know as'much how to  stop 'era as I do.".  ��������� ,  ��������� ."We'll" be chucked out and killed!"  shouted the deacon as the cart banged  over a stone.  Tho ; oxen were now thoroughly  frightened and running away, for fair,  and both men'were7badly scared and  holding on for dear life. All at once an  idea struck Job.  "Say, 'deacon,   can't  you   talk   some  sea talk to 'em? That's what I've allers  ��������� beard-Ike talk to 'em," he called out as  ��������� the cart bumped along.  "Brother Haines, such sea talk as  I've heard ain't proper fer a pillar of  ,the church to repeat, and I'll call meet-  in' on you fer this if we git out alive,''  replied the deacon, with as much, dignity7 as "he< could assume-while holding  to the stake.  "Do try, deacon!" shouted the terrified Job.   "It may save our, lives."  Just then the cart gave a'fearful  lurch, and the deacon banged his (hea'd  against the stake he was holding to  with' considerable force. - This made  "him boiling mad in addition to.his feax\  "Splice the main, brace! Shiver my  timbers! Pipe all hands to grog!" and  then, as that had" no effect on the frantic team, "Boat ahoy!" and then, losing  all control of himself :,VAhoy! Ahoy!  Drat^you. you blankety^blank brutes!",  and the deacon let our such a string of  profanity'that Job turned a shade'or  two palei\  While this was going on the oxen  had got over considerable ground. The  people along the road gazed in open  mouthed astonishment to see two such  staid "citizens going, along so furiously  with an ox team and were terribly  scandalized at their apparent hilarity.  ' - Ike, totally unconscious of what was  going on at home, was plodding along  toward his chum's when he heard a'  fearful clatter coming behind him.. He  turned and could hardly believe his  eyes. There came his pets Jack and  Billy at a furious pace and his uncle  and the deacon in the ca'rt.  "Stop 'cm, Ike! Stop 'em!" shouted  his uncle when he saw Ike.  Ike stepped to one side of the, road,  jind as the cattle dashed up called out:  "Belay, Jack! Belay. Billy!" At tho  sound of the familiar voice and command they stopped at once and went  quietly up to their young master.  "I'll have the law of you for this,  Job Haines," snarled the deacon as he  painfully descended from the cart.  "And I'll call church on you!" retorted Job as he rubbed his bruises. "I  won't belong to any church with a  man that kin swear like you kin. A  purty deacon you be!"  "If I had a brat like that, I'd skin  him alive!" roared the deacon as he  glared at the bewildered Ike.  "Isaac, take them cattle home at  once,'\ said his, uncle. "As for this  wicked man here, I shall never notice  him again."  Ike took the cattle home. His uncle  walked. His aunt told him about the  contemplated sale, and, though he expressed commiseration for his uncle, it  is doubtful if he felt any. His aunt  said it served them just right. Ike  kept his oxen. ������������������#**  of solemn emphasis on matters which  were of no interest. .. Nothing came  from him that was of use to me that  day or, in fact, any day.".

Ugi UjiIji--Oh, yes, I remember him  well!   He was delicious!  Carlyle  and   Bores.  Whether Carlyle was a dead failure  or not is a moot point, but he certainly  did not knoyv , how to put up with  bores. "The art of being savage to  those people" or "such things"���������as he  would have designated themr-which  Scott so signally lacked, was possessed  by him in its perfection. What he  could "least endure," we are told, was  being bored. "The anathemas which  he heaped on unfortunate bores exceed  Ernulphus' in exquisite variety."  A whole museum.might be filled with  Carlyle's bores alone. He obtained access to the immortals, and they bored  him. To his acrid humor Charles Lamb  was something less, almost, than a  bore. Coleridge, whom he had not  been disinclined to revere, was a bore  of the most oppressive kind. "He hobbled about with us," writes the irreverent Thomas, "talkine with a kind  Anent  Teeth.  "I notice in the morning paper," remarked Newton Benedict at tho break-  Cast table, "that there has been found the  skeleton of a mastodon which had teeth  weighing nearly ten pounds each. I can't  see what the beast would want with such  large food grinders."  "Why not?" queried Mrs. B. "I understand it was a large animal."  "Yes," answered, Newton,. . looking  moodily at a plate of homemade biscuits,  "but you must- remember that it lived  many "thousand years before cooking  ichools were even thought of."���������'Salt  S^ake Herald. -  1    'Bloodless   Surgery.  Dr. Jokichi Takamine, a Japanese,  claims to have'discovered the possibility' of bloodless surgery through the  medium of a chemical composition called adrenalin.

Lady'Halle, although not an English  (Woman born, is one of the most popular -women in London and has acquired  fame other than that conferred upon1  her by her title. Lady Halle is an accomplished musician, and so highly is  her ability thought of in royal' circles  that upon coming to,the throne Queen  Alexandra appointed her court violinist. The English regard Lady Halle as  ibejflncst of all women violinists, and  on the occasions "\yhcn she performs in  public she is greeted with unbounded  enthusiasm. 7      ������������������ '  Lady Halle's maiden name was Wil-  helmiua Neruda, and she was' born in  shoes which present a brave front, but  are run over at the heel and ugly  enough.

Mary^ Elizabeth Evans of Syracuse  needed'mbney, and she went to work  -In a clever way to make it. She' prepared the way for a large candy trade  by having a booklet printed which con-'  Bisted .of brief letters from Syracuse  phj'sicians who'bought candies from  her, tolling in a few words what they  thought of them.  One of this bright girl's plans was  the establishment of .a showcase at  Which all customers help themselves.  In the case are neatly piled'boxes of  "Mary Elizabeth's" homemade candy,  ��������� phile at one end of the case is a glass  nnd wood cabinet with double doors.  Swinging from one of the doors is a  sign printed, in red and black, which  reads as follows:  "Open these dcors. Take what you  Wish. Leave co^t of goods taken. Make  your change from my till. Trusting to  customers' honor. Please close the  doors; 'Mary Elizabeth Evans."  In this cabiuet there is an assortment of candy neatly done up in boxes, each bearing a medallion of tho  maker and the words "Mary Elizabeth" in a facsimile of the maker's  handwriting. On the lower shelf ot  the cabinet is the till, with places for  the various denominations of change  and a long space for bills. The customer is expected to opeu the doors,  make his choice, place the money in  /the till, make change if necessary and  close the doors.  , 'Miss Evans says she has found her  .change correct so far.���������Grocery World.  The U������e of Mirror*.  A full length mirror is as necessary  to a woman as her comb and brush.  Have you ever felt the sho^k of being  brought suddenly face to face with a  mirror which cruelly showed up every  Imperfection of your makeup? Did you  ;, forget how your dress skirt bobbed up  in front or hung in unsightly scallops?  Did you relish the misfit of any one or  1 your garments or the ugliness of your  feet? Those things never could have  happened to the woman who made a  full length mirror her best friend.  There are women who have no use  for a hand glass. They can be picked  out by their unbecoming hats, badly  dressed haii% careless neckwear and  crooked dress seams. If tbe hand glass  told them that, the middle of a dress  skirt was an inch or two beyond the  Immediate back of the waist, readjustment would follow. If the hand glass  showed one side or the back of a hat  to be hideous, the pretty front would  , be forgotten, and the hat would remain in the possession of the milliner.  Women calmly walk down the street in  Bmnnctpntlou   In   Mnrrtncre.  Though there can be no emancipation  from marriage, this is not saying' that  there may not be emancipation in marriage, says William M. Salter in The  Atlantic. Marriage,-is not necessarily a'  one sided contract in which the woman  agrees to obey or to serve. To consent  to make oneself another's ^subject or  servant is unworthy of'a human being  even if done freely. In law we do not  allow one person to soli himself into  slavery to another. The contract is null  and void. There is^no reason in morals  why a woman should put herself at the  beck and call of a man. Any'true marriage is a relation of equals. It is a relation in which the freedom of each is  respected, by the other. It is a relation  of mutual service in which force is  never used, in which command is never  heard.  If the wife is .obliged to submit  to her husband, that is barbarism, no  matter who,  what  rite,   what' Bible,  ��������� what law, sanctions it.  Authority may  be  excused over children, it may be  justified in the state, but to the extent  it is exercised between 'partners in the'  , marriage relation the beauty, the sa-  credness, of the relation is gone.  ,    ,, Managriugr  Children.  Once convince the children that' you'  have confidence in them, and it is seldom that it will prove-';to be a" misplaced trust, but treat them- as small  criminals, and even-..the babies will  soon discover a way tb circumvent the  keepers'of/ hidden treasures.

Some Recognition  a  , Cast  Off  Clothes.  " Don't throw away the cast off clothes  of the "grovsn ups." The economical  woman should be wise enough, to study  out'the possibilities *of-old cloth, and  when she has once learned the art of  making over she can keep her children  nicely clothed with a very small outlay  of, money. Among the many useful ar-''  tides which can be made from men's  tsuits when they are past renovating is  a nice suit,for the small boy or a styl-'  ish jacket for the little girl. >  A dress'that-is partly worn will still  contain ample material' for'a' small  dress, and if o.no has no natural 'talent  for making pretty new garments from  old material it is an art that can be ae-'  quired and?is well worth the trouble,  especially in a household of limited  means.. '       ' c   '   ,l  Drooping1  Plumes.  One of .the most melancholy spectacles is a hat bedecked with gray, drooping0 and forlorn ostrich feathers that  were once snowy, white'and now look  quite as though, life were not worth  living since their curls had disappeared. It is always best to send them to a  professional cleaner when they r have  been reduced to this sorry plight, but  for'those who cannot avail themselves  of bis services the following method of  cleaning is recommended: Cover the  feathers with a paste made of pipeclay  and water, rubbing them only one way.  When dry, shake to free them of the  powder and then curl them with an  ivory paper cutter or the back of a silver knife.  The  Evening:  Lamp.  Many housekeepers think that to  turn down a lamp saves oil. In point of  fact, it does nothing of the'kind. The  same amount of oil is consumed, only  that which is "not. burned in a flame  passes off as"gas. You can notice this  at once on entering a, room where a  lamp has been turned low for auy  length of time. Besides the disagreeable odor the gas'is most injurious to,  flowers or plants that may be near it.  If little light be required,-a small lamp  with a small wick should be kept  tarned up to its proper height.  Tnbs  an* Pnil*.  When a talented young girl went  to Mine.

To obviate this difficulty  stuff the vessel with straw, placing a  stone or other weight on top, thou pour  the water In. While much of it will  still run out, the straw will retain sufficient to materially aid ^accomplishing the desired end.  Water  and  Cooking.  In making tea or coffe������ or in cooking  vegetables water that has been allowed  to boil should not be used. When juices  are to be extracted from food, soft water should be employed. When the object is to retain them, hard.or salted  water is best. Vegetables that are to  be served without the liquor should be  cooked in only sufficient water to keep  them from burning, otherwise much of  their nutritive qualities will be lost.  ���������Wash For Dark Hair.  A wash recommended for dark hair  Is made by melting half an ounce of  castile soap in a quart of hot water in  which an ounce of carbonate of soda  has been dissolved and adding to it an  ounce 'of spirits of wine and a few  drops of violet or other perfume essence. After applying night and morning brush the hair for about ten minutes.  The  Holland   Woman's  "Way.

"Patricka O'Sullivana," quickly answered the Italian.   ���������  "Well," mused the auctioneer, "that's  a good old name for a dago. Come,  that's not yours, though."

An  editoiial in the Colonist' of recent  date says " the Opposition has refused point blank io'allow supply  to be voted." Of course, this means  continued " talking against time"  by Opposition members, and great  delay in the transaction of public  business. This is all that it will  effect.

The explosion was so great  that the'roof of the fan house was  blown'-away .above the mountain  top and came d"wn in .little pieces.  Stones, dirt and dust were blown so  high that they did not "descend for ���������  miriutes. Mine Inspector 'Dick  happened to be in town, and is assisting in the relibf.'  Relief parties are working heroically in'four sh.its. So far only 37  bodies have bet-n recovered,  Twenty-three who worked on the  left side of No. 3 mine had a mir-  acuiouri-escape.  Tbe Church of England in Fernie  is being used as a morgue.  M-any of the killed leave large  families and scarcely a fa mil j5- but  mourns the loss of sume hue,  , On account of the fire danip and  the wreck'of the inteiior of tne  mine, it will be several day:- before  all the bodies will be recovered.  s      *      *    ,  ��������� Fernie, *May.23.���������Following are  the names of \ictims of last evening's disaster v\hose bodies ha.;ve  been lecovercd up to ihe -piesent  time:���������Steve Morgan, Joe S'ongala,.
