THE   NEWS,   CUMBERLAND,  BRITISH   COLUMBIA,  LORD OF AGRICULTURE  MINISTER   LORD  CARRINGTON   IN  THE BRITISH CABINET.  Derives His Income, Estimated at $500,-  000 a Year, Exclusively From Land,  and  Does  Not Own a  Single Share  i   of Siock or Bond of Any Sort What-  ,   ever���������One of King's Oldest Personal  Friends.  No moro appropriate appointment  ���������"Could possibly have been made in the  Liberal Administration in England than  that of, Lord Carrington to the post of  ���������Minister of Agriculture, writes the Marquise de Fontenoy. For pertiaps alone  Among the members of the House of  '"Lords, he derives his income exclusive-  8y from land, that is to say, from agriculture, and was able to boast the other  day at the banquet of the Farmers'  Club at Whitehall Court Chat tie did not  wn a aingle share of stock or bond of  .-any kind -whatsoever, an extraordinary  condition of affairs when it is borne in  ���������mind that he is a rich man and that  -Ills annual^ income Is rated at considerably over $500,000.  ' His appointment must also be extremely agreeable to the royal family.  For -he Is one of the oldest personal  ���������friends of King Edward, and in their  ���������younger days they were almost con-  jetantly tn each other's company. He is  'descended from the same stock as Lord  IPauncefote���������namely: from Abel Smith,  Stae Nottingham banker, who flourished  *t the beginning of the eighteenth century. Abel had three sons of whom the  torsi was George, who was created a  fcaronet and whose eldest son ana*  |namesake assumed the name of Brom-  i*ey in lieu of Smith, his descendant,  |ihe present holder of the baronetcy, be-  !lng Sir Robert Bromley, married to the  iate Lord Pauncefote's daughter Lilian.  ��������� Abel Smith's second son, John, was  ���������the ancestor of the late Lord Paunce-  [tTote. The third son of Abel bore the  -siame name and had a son of his own  named Robert, who was the friend and  banker of the famous Prime Minister  'Pitt, and for whom the latter secured,  '���������with a good deal of difficulty, a peer-  j-age-from George III., the latter mani-  ilesting an invincible objection to raising "any one in trade" to the House  todf Lords. Pitt was of a different opin-  tfon. He held that any man of good"  jrerpute, possessed of an income of $100,-  }<W0 a year, derived from entailed landed  property, was, ipso facto, entitled to a  average, and he had his way.  ��������� Pitt's friend selected as his title that  j������f Lord Carrington, and his son, following the example of the other de-  jecendants of the original Abel Smith,  {���������secured leave from tihe Crown to change  iWs patronymic from Smith to Carrington.  ! The present Lord Carrington was one  of the few cronies of King Edward of  ^���������whom his mother, the late Queen, was  ���������extremely fond, and she bestowed upon  /hiro many marks of favor, promoting  Ihlrn from a baronetcy to an earldom,  i������nd appointing him to all sorts of of-  'flees, Including those of captain of the  ���������corps of the gentlemen-at-arms, governor of the colony of New South Wales,  land Lord Chamberlain. It was while  folding the latter office that Lord Car-  Irington, In fulfilling his duties as cen-  ioor of the drama, had his memorable  (encounter wltfh Fay Templeton on the  umbject of her costume, when she was  ���������appearing at the Gayety theatre In  Hiondon.  ! Sixty-three, bespectacled, and most  -"benevolent looking, it Is difficult to re-  ijpresent to oneself that Lord Carrington  iwas forty years ago the associate of his  equally gray-haired sovereign in many  a wild freak and harum-scarum prank,  |and that he was the principal actor in  tone of the moat sensational horse-whipping scandals of the nineteenth century.  (The caatlgatlon was ���������administered to  |GronvUIo Murray, former diplomat, author, and Journalist, for holding up the  'earl to ridicule nnd obloquy, under the  ���������pseudonym of "Bob Cliousiiigtun, Lord  Jarvey," in a wenkly newspaper of the  ���������ocl'ty order entitled tho Queen's Mos-  sioriBvr  Gronvillft Murray, who received a te'r������  Irlblo drubbing, brought -suit against  'I^ord Carrington for assault and secured  the imposition of a flno of $500. But  ���������during the course of tho legal proceedings he was unfortunate , enough to  swear to sormihlnjr that was not true,  ���������and thoreupon I-ord Carrlrfrfton pro-  coacViI ngalnut him for perjury. JTp escape the consequences of a certain conviction Murray fled to France* Wie're  4*io remained an exile from his native  land until his death.  Orprnvfllo Murray was understood to  be a natural son uf Lord ,Pulmerston,  ���������who was his protector* as long as be  lived, and who certainly gave him hia  first appoini-mom in me aipiornane service.

Quenn, has an American  *wtft>, a (jaiigmer ei the Ute ktwale  Warden,  One or tne queerest duties wnioh Sir  Wililam has had to perform has bean  ���������to direct the operations of the party  composed of yeomen of the guard in  their quaint medieval uniforms, and of  modern garbed policemen, who on the  night before the opening- of Parliament  seirch the vaults aud cellars beneath  the House of Lords and- the House of  Commons., This is more of a historical  ceremony than a measure of precaution, and it dates back to the day of  King James I. and of the gunpowder  plot. It is scarcely necessary to relate  here the time-honored story of how Guy  Fawkes was discovered on Nov. 6, 1605,  notmealetl In the vau'JS beneath the  Houses of Parliament, equipped with  a dark lantern and fuses, and surrounded by a large number of barrels of gunpowder, all ready to blow king, lords,  and Commons into eternity.  From that time to this the vaults and  cellars of Parliament have always been  solemnly searched on the eve of the  opening of Parliament, which, in view  of the perfect manner In which the  entire palace of Westminster Is guarded by a detachment of London police  assigned to this duty, is quite as superfluous as the lanterns carried by the  yeomen of the guard on these occasions,  the vaults being brilliantly lighted by  electricity.  Sir William Carrington no longer is  in charge of this particular duty, which  he fulfilled in his capacity as secretary  to the Lord Great Chamberlan, a hereditary office distinct from that of Lord  Chamberlain of the Household and held  jointly by Lord Carrington, Lord An-  caster, and the Marquis of Cholmonde-  ley. According to an arrangement between these three peers, each in turn  fills the office during a reign.  Lord Carrington was Lord Great  Chamberlain until the death of Queen  Victoria, and as such in supreme control of the palace of Westminster, that  is to say, of the Houses of Parliament.  When Edward VII. came to the throne  Lord Cholmondeley assumed the duties  of Lord Great Chamberlain, and when  the present Prince of Wales succeeds  to the Crown it will be Lord Ancaster  who will assume the obligations of this  office.  Let me add in conclusion that both  Lord Carrington and his brother, Sir  Bill Carrington, profess to be not merely ardent Liberals^ but even advanced  Radicals.  MY CRFED.  Better a smile than a tear or a sigh,  Better a laugh than a frown,  Better an upward look to the sky  Than always a sad look down.  The joys we find in each little day  Perhaps may seem few and sma.ll,  But better these little joys, I say,  Than to have no jjys at all.  Keep faith in the love that blesses men  As the sunshine does the sod.  Let us do our best and trust the rest  To the father heart of God.  ���������Dben E. Rexford.  PHOTOGRAPH MYSTERY.  Chance to Build a Model City.  Canada has one of these rare opportunities. She has a chance to build a  _modei city. The western terminus ��������� of  her~new Grand Trunk Pacific line from"  ocean to ocean will be at a place which  it has been decided to call Prince  Rupert, The new railway is a, national  enter,-*i������s, and as such the Dominion  Government has practically full control  of the plans for the new city at its  western end. Its location is some four  hundred miles north of the present *J**ty  of Vancouver, not far from the mou,th  of the Skeena River, and only a short  distance from the southward projection  of Alaska. The region is now practically a wilderness, and Canada has a  chance to build a city as it should be.  She can lay out broad streets, plan  sewer systems, provide for ample parks,  reserve suitable plots fori public buildings, and Impose restrictions upon tha  class of structures to be erected in  particular districts.���������New York Sun.  Good Americans Are Canadians.  Wednesday morning's Chicago papers  contained a detailed description of  George Sutton's wonderful play in the  billiard tournament in New York. He  broke the record in an unparalleled  run of skillful and successful play. Of  course, in our papers hero he was the  "wonderful 'American' bllllnrdlst." Last  week when he happened to have met  with defeat in a flame he was "the  ���������Canadian' player."

The astounding story of mysterious  photographs, which is vouched for by  a well-known London photographer, is  told in the current number of M. A. P.  A certain young woman named Miss  B., who lives with her mother in one  of the home counties, made an appointment with the photographer in question. The sitting was duly given, the  photograph taken, and after, the lapse  of a week the young woman received  a letter saying the photographs were  not a success, and asking for another  sitting. She agreed, and as soon as  possible went to London again and ���������  second photograph was taken.  A short time elapsed, and, as no  proofs were sent, she wrote, making, enquiries, only to receive a very apologetic  letter saying that again the photographs  were failures and asking for a third  sitting. For the third time Miss B. came  to London. In two days she received  an urgent letter from the photographer,  asking her to come up to his studio  and bring a friend with her. As a result of this letter Miss B., accompanied  by her mother, paid a fourth visit to ths  studio, and there the photographer exhibited the amazing results of the three  sittings.  The actual photographs of the girl  herself were quite good. But in each  plate there was to be seen standing  beside her the figure of a man holding  a dagger in his uplifted hand. The  features, though faint, were clearly  discernible, and to her horror Miss B.  recognized them as those of her flnace,  an officer in the Indian army. The effect of this experience was so great  that she wrote to India breaking off her  engagement.  THE SUNLIGHT  WAY  RUB ON SUNLIGHT SOAP  UAVE 30 TO 60 MlNUTFSy  Sunlight Soap is better than  other soaps, but is best when  used in the Sunlight way (follow  directions).  , Hard rubbing and boiling are  things of the past in homes  where Sunlight Soap is used as  directed.  Sunlight Soap will not injure  even the daintiest fabric or the  hands, and the clothes will be  perfectly white, woolens soft  and fluffy.  The reason for this is because  Sunlight Soap is absolutely pure,  contains no injurious chemicals  ���������indeed, nothing but the active,  cleansing, dirt-removing properties of soap that is nothing but  soap.  Equally good with hard or  soft water.

Pointer From a Burglar.  ��������� "Bank of England notes are ridiculously easy to imitate. Ths dull, single-  colored ink In which they ars printed  is an Inducement to forgers."  This remarkable statement, which is  in direct opposition to the belief which  has always been cherished by the lay  mind, was made by William Barmash,  one of tho most famous note forgers  of the etntury.  Barmash was released from Penton-  vllle Prison after serving a sentence  of penal servitude for participation in  a bank-note forgery, which, had the  plot succeeded, would have robbed the  Bank of England of ������50,000.  Having now resolved to devote his  abilities to honest business transactions, Barmash, starts by making a  praotleal suggestion for putting an end  to note forgery.  "The Bank of England," he said,  "could stop all the attempt* at forging their notes by printing in fifteen  or sixteen different colors. Even the  cleverest forgers would then be failed,  "If we had been as successful as at  one time we thought we should be, we  should havo entirely destroyed tht  credit of the Bank of England note  In its present old-fashioned shape, and  should have compelled the bank to  change the color and design of their  notes."  He Saw Sir Walter Scott.  Rlohard D. Thompson of Edinburgh  the other day told an   audience   that  when a schoolboy he frequently saw Sir  Walter Scott.   Once when on a Ashing  \ expedition Sir Walter's carriage came  along and stopped, and  Mr.  Scott  of  I Raeburn told Sir Walter who Mr.  Thomson was. Sir Walter spoke to him,  patted him on the shoulder and hoped  that he woilld be a good boy and a credit to his ancestors.    He was known  * to the Scotts, as his grandfather sold  the first bit of Abbotsford to Sir Walter.  Mr. Thomson was quite elated at the  carriage stopping on his aceount.    On  j tToing home he mentioned the incident,  and he remembered his aunt saying;  "Remember tbat.

"Then you have no excuse to offer?"
Marion's voice was dangerously even.
Dick Gordon hated those cold, accusing
tones.
"I have no excuse���to offer," he confirmed angrily, "The woman I am to
marry should be content with my statement that there was a good reason."
"Unfortunately she is not," said Marlon as she laid the ring on his desk.
"I cared enough about the matter to
come to your office to see you about it.
Since you want to be independent, I
give you back your entire independ'
ence."
His face white with anger, Gordon
threw open the door aud stood there as
she passed through to the next room.
Over in the corner John J. was busy
with the mail, but he looked up with a
grin on his freckled face to smile upon
her as she went out. John J. approved
of Marion.     ,
Gordon went back to his desk. The
golden circlet lying there was too much
for his composure, and, with a groan,
he threw his arms forward on the desk
and buried his head upon them.
It had all been very silly and yet
very tragic. He had meant to write
Marion that there was a meeting of the
promoters of the L. and F. railroad and
that he would have to be present to
furnish them with estimates if he
hoped to get the contract. If he could
land that order his success would be
assured, and in the prospect of winning
out he had forgotten to write.
They were both high strung, and
when in the morning she had demanded an explanation of his broken engagement Without having waited for
him to call up on the telephone he had
angrily refused to offer any explanation or apology, and when she had
come to his office they were both too
angry to arrive at an understanding.
Gordon was roused by a touch on the

confront John J.
"Why don't you go home?" he thundered. "The office should have been
closed half an hour ago!"
"I'm going now,'-' explained John J.,
with unusual meekness. ''But you
oughter go up and see Miss Marion and
tell her you're sorry."   ���
Gordon grasped John J. by the shoulders and propelled him into the outer

If not just then. Tho oncouutcr had ut

wont uptown to tho club to spend a
miserable evening trying to protend to
himself that ho did not caro about tho
broken cngagomont.
John J,'s "You'll bo sorry In tbe
morning if you ain't now" was prophetic, Dick moped ovor bis desk all
tbe morning, uuablo to do any work, A
dozen times ho reached for tho telephone to call Marlon up and ask her
forgiveness, and each tlrao ho sot It Irresolutely down again, declaring to
himself that Marlon should have known
that be had a good excuse and that
she should have wultod uutil he could

well as his -own that ho was worried
about that contract, nnd If she could
not realize that a half mentioned engagement might have -dipped his mind
In tho pressure of moro Important matters Hint was hor fault, not his.
Half a dozen times during tho morning John J, stole Into tho room to remind him that those figures for tho L.
and F. had to bo wont out that evening.
Each time lie was im-t with u torrent
of rebuke. Then ho put on his hat and
went out of the iillicit, tlioiigii his lunch

He knew win-re Marion lived, and
the statement that he had a tnesMiige
for her was euough to get liliu past the
door. Presently tbo butler came back
wt-ahrux a solemn frown.
"Miss Darling does not care to re��
ceive the message," he said.
"You tell her I want to see her myself," announced John J.
For a moment the butler hesitated,
and through that hesitation was lost.
Somehow John J. usually got what he
wanted, but he was the only person
not surprised. when' Marion sent down
word that she would see him.
"I want to tell you about Mr. Gor>
don," he began as the butler closed the
door. "Say, he's awful about the place.
He can't do any work, and he can't
keep bis hands off the telephone. It
be don't quiet down and write those
railroad people he's going to lose tno
chance of his life."
'���Why do you come to me?" she asked coldly. "I have nothing to do with
the matter."
"Quit your kiddin'," urged John J.
"I heard you yesterday. You didn't
speak loud, but your words came
through the partition like they was bullets.'You threw bim because-J forgot
to bring you a letter yesterday. It's all
my fault for forgetting to bring up the
letter,"
"Do you mean that he sent me a letter explaining that he would not call
last night?"
"Sure," was the easy reply as John
J. dug in one of his pockets. "He was
in a hurry, and I took it on the machine for him. Just tell him you're
sorry over the telephone so's he can
go to work."
Marion tore open the letter. "Dear
friend," it ran, "I am sorry I can't
come to see you tonight, but there's
some guys I must see about that railroad matter and I can't come. I'm
sorry, but you see this is awfully important, and I know you won't mind.
Don't dance with any of the other fellows. I'm sorry I can't come. Yours
till death."
It was signed with Ids'full name, and
Katherine's eyes twinkled as she read
it over. John J. watched her anxiously. As the smile came over her face
his own assumed a look of satisfaction,
and as she replaced tbe sheet in its
envelope be sprang forward.
"Does it go?" he demanded. "Will
you telephone him?"
"It goes," she smiled as she crossed,
the room where the telephone stood.
He followed her across. "
"Don't give me away," he pleaded
-hoarselyr-^Donit-let-on^that-I^-forgot-
to give you the note."
"I won't," she assured as she raised
the receiver from the hook.
With instinctive politeness he crossed
the room and pretended to look out of
the window while she was speaking,
but the sharp ears would listen, and
when she called to him he knew that
It was all right and that tbe important
letter would be written.
: "It is all right," she said as she came
toward him. "I have telephoned Mr.
Gordon, and he understands. It was
very good of you to come up and tell
me, John,"
"Something had to be done," he protested, "and there wasn't anybody else
to do It."
Marlon leaned forward and kissed
his freckled cheek. "I should be very
jealous of you, John J��� If you were a
woman," she said. "You care a groat
deal for Mr. Gordon."
"He's all right," assented John J., "If
ho does havo a mad spell now and then.
I just lot Mm raxo till he gets over it;
thon he's sorry. You ought to try that."
"It's good advice," sho smiled.
"You didn't tell him that I was up

"No," sho assured, "Then I should
have had to explain about tho lettor."
"Ho don't like to havo mo butting

the doorway.

THE FARMER'S SHEEP.
Popularity and Excellent Qualities of
1 the Shropshire.
The Shropshire sheep Is unquestionably the most popular of all the breeds
if we may judge by the comparative
numbers shown at the various exhibitions and equally by the flocks seen on
the farms as one passes along the
roads in such localities as sheep are
���usually kept Practically it is the farmer's sheep, says Henry Stewart in
Country Gentleman, and the following
are some of the reasons for his opinions:
The Shropshire has an excellent
reputation, as a prime mutton sheep,
especially for its most desirable lambs
for the Easter and Christmas market.
Its home is in the best part of England, where agriculture is most highly
developed, and it stands at the head
of that class of sheep commonly called
the Downs breeds.
Its qualifications as a farm sheep
are various. It is hardy and prolific.
One flock in England has been trained
to produce two sets of lambs every
year, so that the flock as to its original
number really doubles annually, and
as this sheep is very precocious, and if

of the Ross Rifle, the New National
Weapon ��� A Striking Comparison
With the Lee-Enfield���It Is One and
y a Quarter Pounds Lighter. j
The new arm for the Canadian militia
Is now being turned out at the factory
in Quebec, and will soon be issued to
the permanent corps. In all probability
the city corps will receive the first consignment, and then follows the rural
regiments. This weapon Is known as
the Mark II.," and differs slightly from
Mark I. in the bolt action. The same
sights will be used for both patterns,
Lieut. James Sclater received a Ross
rifle, Mark II., recently, says The Vancouver News-Advertiser, and it has
been very closely inspected by a number of rifle shots, who all admire it-
many improvements, and invariably add
"if it only shoots as-well as it looks it
will be a great rifle."
No official description has yet appeared, and it is difficult to describe
on paper all the various parts of the
rifle without using technical terms
which are not thoroughly understood
by those who are not rifle shots. Perhaps a comparison with the Lee-Enfield will give a better idea of the Ross
than a description with  "metes    and

well cared for may be bred as lambs
the second year and increase in this
same proportion, the flock is proportionately, more profitable than one in
which the lambs are only singles. The
sheep of this breed are easily disciplined and are rarely troublesome on
any ordinary farm and thus may be
considered as especially the farmer's
sheep.
It is easily fed and when three years
old may easily be made to dress twenty pounds to the quarter. It is a prolific wool bearer. A prize ram had a
livo weight of over 300 pounds, and
his fleece of that year, not quite a
year's growth, made seventeen and a
-QuarteX-Bounds.   An, excellent charac
teristic is that it improves the. common sheep when bred to it by reason
of its' solidity of form and its strong
natural vitality. This latter quality
tends to the acquisition by the progeny
of a pure bred ram' of the special
points of the breed, so that a half bred
is very little Inferior and often not at
all to the ram Itself.
It is most commonly used by the
range shepherds for the production of
lambs and market sheep.
This breed used to have a dark face,
but of late this peculiarity has been
lost to a considerable degree. The illustration shows a model Shropshire
of the modern type, In which only the
dark face has been lost, but the dark
legs remain to some extent.
Spraying Garden Vegetables.
Spray the following with parls green
when the Insects appear:
Cabbage for cabbage worm,
Cucumbers, squash, pumpkins and
melons for the striped cucumber
beetle.
Tomatoes for the tomato worm.
Spray" potatoes with parts green bordeaux for the Colorado beetle and the
flea beetles, when they appear. This
spray will also prevent the potato
blight.
Potato scab Is treated by soaking
the seed potatoes In formalin (a pint
In thirty gallons of water) for about
two hours, Treated potatoes should not

Lighter Than the Lee-Enfield.
In the first place the new rifle weighs
only eight pounds, one and one-quarter
pounds lighter. This is obtained by
hollowing out the woodwork in the
stock and. less metal in the barrel towards the muzzle. It is two inches
shorter, but.this is a questionable improvement, and results will be awaited
with some anxiety. The sights are
albout the same distance apart, therefore the back sight is a little nearer
the eye. The rifling differs from any
other rifle in the number of grooves,
having only four, but they are wid^r
than the lands and haveca right hoist
instead of left as in the Lee-Enfield,
the rate of twist being the same, viz., 1
in 10.
The lead is a severe one, the "lands or
-ridges���being���continued���to���the���place-
where the bullet rests in the breech.
���In the Lee-Enfield the ridges are sloped
slown for about half an inch, and the
bullet gets a short start before it meets
with the friction, of the ridges. The
"adoption of this change is probably
the result of experiments in the old
country, with a view of obtaining a
higher velocity, which proved that there
is a loss of muzzle velocity with an
easy lead.
The Bolt a Great Improvement.
One of the worst faults of the Lee-
Enfield rifle was the system of locking, and in this respect the Ross cer-'
tainly is unsurpassed.   The Enfield bolt
required two motions, throwing upward
and pulling back.    The Ross needs lo
be pulled straight back only and a push
forward will compress  the firing pin
spring and lock the breech.     The old
rifle bolt resisted the shock of discharge
on a shoulder about three inches in rear
of breech and on one side only, which
In a worn breech action allowed considerable movement at a critical time.
The new rifle Is fitted with two strong
locking lugs which engage In slots Immediately in the rear of the base of the
cartridge.    The   Springfield   and   new
United  States army rifle, 1003,    have
locking Jugs on tho under side of tlio
bolt head  which  are  well  up  to  the
cartridge chamber, but they each havo
a single lug in the place of two,
Magazine In the Stock.
The Ross magazine Is another good
point, as It Is contained inside the stock
��nd does not project as In the Loe-
Enfleld,    When tho rlflo Is held in tho
left hand tho fingers can press the magazine platform and the right hand having taken a fuw loo��o cartridge's from
tho pouch, can pour them In and close
tho bolt.   This docs away entirely with
clips and tho tedious process of charging the Loo-Enflold magazine,   which
requires both hands, one to put a single
cartridge In and tho other to lay It in
place and keep It down while another
was plaoed on top.   A cut-off permits
the rlflo to bo used as a single loader,
and pressure on a thumb-piece on the
left allows tihe bolt to be, removed from
the rifle.  To descrlbe,what occurs when
the bolt Is closed or opened, would oc-'
cupy too much space, but it Is not too
much to say that the mechanism of the
Ross rifle Is extremely good, and embodies many of the latest suggestions
made by experts during the past two
years. < j

made by a small milled head on the
right of the sight cap. Each division
gives' five inches for each 100 yards,
which is easy to remember. The buck
sight itself is a V, but this could, be
filed down and used as a bar. It is to
ha res-retted that this new sight does
not have in addition an aperture or peep
sight. A small hinged (lap could have
been mounted, with an aperture in the
centre which would lay back out of the
way when not in use. In the States this
form of sight is very popular, and it
has been found that recruits who have
had very little experience soon become
fair shots. Having no back sight to
complicate matters he is able to concentrate his attention to the foresight and
the bull's-eye only. With the open sight
a man has to focus the back sight, foresight and bull's-eye at three different
distances with such rapidity that they
actually seem to be sevi'at'one and the
same time; that is by men with vers
good eyesight and which ia known as

very many men who have not this'facility, and who are heavily handicapped,
and the aperture sight would be a
great boon to them and to men with a
tendency to short sight.
Ahead of the British.
Probably other suggestions will b��
made and some men will say, why not
wait a little and get the very latest
ideas, but if such men had their way
very little would be done in the world.
The Ross rifle is the latest up-to-date
rifle, and in many respects is away
ahead of the British army short rifle,
which has raised such commotion thai
manufacture has ceased. The United
States army rifle, 1903, seems doomed
also, in its present sawed-off form. It
is to be sincerely hoped that actual
tests with the Ross rifle will bear out
the good opinion formed from its appearance and hand'iness, that the barrel is made of a high-grade steel that
will last long and maintain accurate
shooting, and finally that the shortening of the barrel, even only two inches,
will not impair Its shooting qualities
at long ranges.

________���      ___ffir���0__     7 ______
Those who resent the criticism oi
Mme. Bernhardt and Sir Gilbert Parker, are right in asserting that Canada has her writers, her musicians, hei
artists, her men of science, says The
Montreal Standard. The slightest reflection, the slightest knowledge ol
facts, shows that in every nation there
is a remnant, a saving few who devote
themselves to the things of the intellect and the imagination. These the nation is proud to count as its representative men. Go to Finland, Bosnia, oi
Argentina, and you will find this true.
Ah, but our Cai-adinns do. not take first
rank; they are not known to the world,
and that hurts our pride,
The. nativlst literary movement In
Canada in the last twenty years presents distinct features and outlines to
the observer who has noted the facts,
Verse came first, and then prose fiction,
Lampman and Parker leading the two
divisions. The output, in bulk and variety, is worthy of attention; and greatei
things are yet to come. The books In
question could have been written only
by Canadians. Generally, outside recognition gave our writers their place, and
extra-Canadian markets gave them o
living, Roberts, TaVkor, Carman, Barr,
Mrs. Cotes could not have lived by thcil
writing In their own land. Their royalties would not have b night them shoestrings. Our own people were npatho-
tic, until London nnd Now York began
to praise and to buy.
One reason for our apathy, which
now is passing away, was the quality
nf our criticism. In the pa��t Canadian
books have been cither ovor-praised oi
else unduly disparaged. Both method*
havo made the public suspicious, and
doubtful if any good thing could corns
out'of���Canada. At the present time,
criticism bus a useful function to perform. It can overlook, commend, praise*
and Interpret the literary movement. In
rnre instance--, It may call attention to
faults, Betviusi) there Is only one stand*
ard by which Canadian literature should
be measured���tho highest, But Its chief
aim should be to Interpret, The school
of Jeffrey, Lockhart, and Macaulay
wern zealous for order, for putting people In their places, for awarding JudU
clal praise nnd blamo; they lovod thi
literary tomahawk and scalplng-knife,
But Balnto-Bouve showed us a more
excellent way. He taught us that the
chief aim of the critic uhould be to
I understand his author and help others
to understand him,

A DUEL TN THE ISKY.  They were brothers���������came into the  world tho same day. the same hour, ami  in like manner, they appeared before  the tent of Pedro Longman, a showman,  who traveled from village to village with  his troop of acrobats, juggler*'au-i trained lious.  "What can you do?" he asked  "Anything requiring skill and agility."  ���������'Ah! that is saying a great deal.  Can you give me an evidence of your  ability?"  Tlie words wore scarcely spoken when  thfjy made a perilous leap over his head,  turned a double somersault, and landed  in smiling precision before him. Pedro  was delighted; the engagement was  soon concluded at a verv small weekly  stipend, the brothers saying: "Pay ua  what you please; youmust decide that."  From tho advent, of those two nn  Known (for no ono knew their real names  ���������they simply styled   themselves Dick  and Dock) good fortune seemed to smile  on this traveling show.  In truth,'it was impossible to imagine  anything more graceful and daring tha*\  these young acrobats, whether suspended from the trapeze, living through th;  air, or leaping and vaulting in the most  wonderful manner���������they seemed as oin.  body animated by ������o<������ will; then with  Incomparable grace they would light ojr,  their feet, and, hand in hand, receive  the plaudits of tho delighted crowd,  while golden louis, bouquets and billets-  doux, thrown by dainty hands, wouid  fall in the sawdust ring. But these perfumed billets never had the honor of  being opened���������not oven thoir seals'  broken���������for Dick and Dock seemed utterly oblivious, to blondes or brunettes,  and when not in the arena, were always  studying their profession or practicing  new feats of strength and agility.  Nevertheless, they were good comrades with Jeaunot, the clown; with-the  cannon-ball man and with the colossal  fat woman, who was no other than  inadame Pedro herself. Amid all this  adultation only one person seemed indifferent to their attractions and that  was Nita, the only daughter of Pedro,  the most exquisite little darling you can  imagine in hor rose-colored gauze,  spangled with gold; she looked like some  aerial creature flying round -,he ring,  leaping through the hoops of paper.  Fresh as a rose and changeful" us a  butterfly, she mockingly teased the  brothers, sometimes running after Diok,  sometimes leaping on the trapose behind  Dock. Very cold and correct they  silently received her coquetries, neve?  showing the least familiarity to the  daughter of their natron.  __Time rolled on, and gold rolled into  the coffers oFPedraT He ^'irTpTmiTr-r���������  rich. and often wondered at the .indifference of Dick and Dock, ..who had  never asked for an increase of salary..  This mercenary Spaniard, Pedro, could  understand why a man would toil for  profit or position, but to work for little  or noting w:is unnatural���������there must bs  something behind it.  Suddenly a thought struck him. They  were striving to establish a reputation,  and would theti set up a business for  themselves. He must retain these-  valuable assistants by a bond- not easilv  broken. "I will give them my daugiit  er Nita. Sapristo! sho can only marry  one of them; which uhall it be? Dick if  stronger than Dock), but Dock is more  agile and gracoful.''  Then Pedro took a decided resolution  ntid laid his dilemma before the brothers'  ���������'Which one of you will marry my lit  tie Nita?"  Dick and Dock exchanged looks, then  one of them Raid: "In ten days wo will  answer you."-- "Ah, yes," couiinnod tho  other; "in ten days."  ������������������That's all right."said Pedro. "After  the balloon ascension; 1 understand,"  Pedro hurl arranged with tin aeronaut  for a balloon iuieouaion, a trapeze*-to bo  attached to tho car, on which inn brothers would piv.'t'ori-a thoir wonderful feats  five hundred meters above tho earth.

"You   know the Bible, says it is not j  good for man to live alone."  "It does, madam," said he, "but I  have a mighty fear 'in tne, remembering the twenty-fourth verse of the  twenty-fifth chapter of Proverbs: 'It is  better to dwell-in the corner of the  housetops than with a brawling woman in a wide house.' We cannot all be  eo fortunate as our friend Trumbull.  But I have felt tho great passion."  He smiled at her faintly as he spoke  In a quiet manner, his "r's" coming off  his tongue with a stately roll. His environment and the company had given  him a fair degree of stimulation.  There was a fine dignity in his deep  voice, and his body bristled with it  from his stiff and heavy shock of blond  bair. Darted carefully on the left side,  to his high heeled boots. The few  light hairs that stood in lonely aban-,  donment on his upper lip, the rest of  his lean visage always well shorn, bad  no small part in the grand effect of  McClingan.  "A love story!" said Miss Hull. "I  do wish I had your confidence. I'llko  a real, time love story."  "A simple stawry it is," said McClingan, "and I am proud of my part  in it. I shall be glad to tell the stawry if you care to hear it."  We assured him of our interest  "Well," said he, "there was one Tom  Douglass at Edinburgh who was my  friend and classmate. "We were together a good bit of tbe time, and  when we had come to the end of our  -course-we-both-went-to-engage-in-jour-  nalism at Glasgow. We had a mighty  conceit of ourselves���������you know how it  is, Brower, with a green lad���������but we  were a mind to be modest with all our  learning, so we made an agreement���������I  would blaw his horn and he would  blaw mine. We were not to lack appreciation. He was on one paper and  I on another, and every time he wrote  nn article I went up and down the office praising him for a man o' mighty  skill, and he did the same for me.  "If any one spoke of him in my hearing I said every word of flattery at my  command. 'What Tom Douglass,' I  would say���������'the man o' the Herald  that's written those wonderful articles  from the law count? A genius, sir; an  absolute genius!' Well, we were rapidly gaining reputation. Ono of those  days I found myself in lovo with as  comely n lass as ever a man courted.  Her mother had a proper curiosity as  to my character, 1 referred them to  Tom Douglass of the Herald. He was  the only man there who had known me  well. The girl and hor mother both  went to him.  " 'Your friend was just hero,' said tho  young lady when I called again. 'Ho la  a very handsome man,'  " 'And a noble inan!' I said.  "'And didn't 1 hoar you say that he  was n vory skillful iiuin too?1  " 'A genius!' I answered. 'An absolute genius!'"  McCllngun stopped and laughed  heartily ns ho took a sip of water.  "Wbut happened thuuV" said Miss  Hull.  "She took him on my recommendation," ho answered. "Sho said that,  while ho had the handsomer fuco, I hud  tho moro eloquent tongue. And thoy  both won for him. And, upon mo honor  ns a gentleman, It was tho luckiest  thing that over happened to mo, for Bho  became a brawler nnd a scold. My  mother says thero is 'do the llko o' her  In Scotland.' "  I shall never forget how fondly Mar-  Buret Hull patted the brown cliook of  Trumbull with her delicate whlto hand  us we rose.  "Wo nil have our lovo stawrlos," said  McClingan.  "Mlno Is bottor than yours," she answered, "but it shall never bo told."  "Except ono llttlo part of It," snid  Trumbull as he put his hands upon her  shoulders und looked down into her  face. "It la the only thing that has  made my life worth living."  Then sho made us to know many odd  things about her work for the i-hlldreu  of mlBfortuno, Inviting us tn p<������nu������ and  geo It for ourselves. Wo woro to go tho  next evonlng.  I finished my worlc at 0 that night,  and then we walked through noisome  streets and alleys���������New York was then  fur from lining **o cloiiu n city t\> now���������  lo the big minimi house. As wo <<imo  in nt tho door -.m hhw a group of women kneeling before tho nltnr at tho far  end of tho room and heard tho voice of  Margaret Hull pniylug-a voice so  sweet und tender that wo bowed our  bendi at once and listened *wbilo It  ���������nlckened tne llfo In us, tth������ oleaded (or  the poor creatures about'Her, to wnom  Christ gave always the most abundant  pity, seeing they were moro sinned  against than sinning. There was not a  word of cant in her petition. It was  full of a simple, unconscious eloquence,  a higher feeling than I dare try to define. And when it was over she had  won their love and'confidence so thai  they clung to her hands and kissed  them and wet them with their tears.  She came and spoke to us presently in  the same sweet manner that had  charmed us the night before. There  was no change in it. We offered to  walk home with her, but she said  Trumbull was coming at 12.  "So that is 'The Little Mother' of  whom I have heard so often," said McClingan as we came away.  "What do you think of her?" I Inquired.  "Wonderful woman!" he said. "I  never heard such a voice. It gives me  visions. Every other is as the crackling  of -thorns under a pot."  *       *       ������       *       ���������       *   " ' ���������  I came back to the office and went  into Mr. Greeley's room to bid him  goodby. He stood by the gas jet in a  fine new suit of clothes reading a paper, while a boy was blacking one of  his boots. I sat down, awaiting a more  favorable moment. A very young man  had come into the room and stood timidly holding his hat.  "I wish to see Mr. Greeley," he said.  "There he is," I answered. "Go and  speak to him."  "Mr. Greeley," said he, "I have called  to see if you can take me on the Tribune."  The printer continued reading as If  something nao ranen on bim and spattered as It struck. We stood well ont  of range, looking at It, undeniably the  stain of nicotine. In a voice that was  no encouragement to confession he  dared "the drooling idiot" to declare  himself. In a moment he opened his  waistcoat and surveyed the damage.,  ���������'Look at that!" he went on complaln-  Ingly. "Ugh! The reeking, filthy, slobbering idiot! I'd rather be slain with  the jawbone of an ass."  "You'll have to get another shirt,"  said the pressman, who stood near.  "You can't go to Washington with such  a breastpin."  "I'd breastpin him If I knew who he  was!" said the editor.  A number of us followed him downstairs, and a young man wont up the  Bowery for a new shirt. When it came  the printer took off the soiled garment,  flinging it into a corner, and I helped  him to put himself in proper fettle  again. This finished, he ran away hurriedly, with his carpetbag, and I missed the opportunity I wanted for a brief  talk with him.  he were tbe only man in the room. <-  The young man looked at him and  then at me with an expression that  moved me to a fellow feeling. He was  a country boy, more green and timid  even than I had been.  "He did not hear you. Try again," I  said.  "Mr. Greeley," said he, louder than  before, "I have called to see if you  can take me on the Tribune."  The editor's eyes glanced off at the  bov and returned,to their reading,  "No, boy, I can't," ne drawled, shifting his eyes to another article.  And the boy, who was called to the  service of the paper iu time, but not  until after his pen had made him fa-,  mous, went away with a look of bitter  disappointment.  In his attire Mr. Greeley wore always tho best material, that soon took  on a friendless and dejected look. Tho  famous white overcoat had been  bought for $5 of a man who had come  by chance to tho olllco of the New  Yorker years boforo and who considered Its purchase a great favor. That  was a timo when tho price of a coat  was a thing of no little Importance to  the printer. Tonight there was about  him a great glow, such as comos of  fine tailoring and new linen.  He was so preoccupied with his paper that I went out Into tho big room  and sat down, awaiting a better time.  "Tho printer's going to Washington  to talk with tho president," said an  editor.  Just then Mr. Greeley went running  hurriedly up tho spiral stair on his way  to tho typo room, Threo or four compositors had gone up ahead of him. Ho  and risen out of sight when wo heard a  tremendous uproar above stairs. ' I  ran up, two steps at a time, whllo tho  high voice of Mr. (Jrooloy eaino pour-  CHAPTER XXVI.  MiY regiment left New York by  | night in a flare of torch and  rocket. The streets were lined  with crowds now hardened to  the sound of fife and drum and the  pomp of military preparation. I had a  very high and mighty feeling In me  that wore away in the discomfort of  travel. For hours after the train started we sang and told stories and ate  peanuts and pulled and hauled at each  other in a cloud of tobacco smoke. The  train was sidetracked here and there  and dragged along at a slow pace.  Young men with no appreciation, as it  seemed to me, of the sad business we  were off upon went roistering up and  down the aisles, drinking out.of bottles  and chasing around the train as It halted. These revelers grew quiet as the  night wore on. The boys began to close  their eyes and lie baok for rest. Some  lay in the aisle, their heads upon their  knapsacks.  The air grew chilly, and soon I could  hear them snoring all about me and the  chatter of frogs in the near marshes.  I closed my eyes and vainly courted  Bleep. A great sadness had lain hold of  me. I had already given up my life for  my_ country.  I was only going away  SPRING LUNCHEON,  Pretty  Color  Scheme  In  Green  sund  Pink���������Dainty Dishes. **  This  tempting  little  luncheon  was i  prepared the other day by a clever  cook.  The color scheme was pink and  green, these two colors being more or  less in evidence in every dish. First  came beet root soup, with a slight garnish of tiny lettuce leaves floating  therein. Then followed a dainty arrangement of fish (turbot or any delicate white fish, though salmon woukl  perhaps carry out the color idea better), carried out in fillets masked with  pale green sauce, surrouuding a center  garnish of seasoned cress.

This was called  escalopes de poisson, sauce cresson.  Noisettes d'Agneau, Rosa, formed the  most solid Item of the menu. It consisted of lamb cutlets, boned and garnished with the tiniest roses of quenelle mixture, arranged on a plateau  of mashed potato, the corners molded  In fluted patterns between each noisette. In the middle was a mound of  spinach, the whole surrounded by a  good brown sauce. The little quenelle  roses were faintly tinged with pink.  Perhaps the most effective and novel  dish was the vegetarian vol-au-vent,  "j.nak fit tliul!"  Ing down upon mo like a flood. It had  a wild, nVerlug tone.

The soul is the great  captain, and with a just quarrel It will  warm Its sword in the enemy, however  he may be trained to thrust and parry.  In my sacrifice there was but one  reservation���������I hoped I should not be  horribly cut with a sword or a bayonet. I had written a long letter to  Hope, who was yet at Leipsic.

The sweet pain de canneherges was  another very pretty dish, consisting of  cranberries   stiffened   with   gelatin,  Devons are a very active breed of  cattle. They are good walkers and  therefore good rustlers and a very  prolific breed, the cows breeding up  to twenty years of age, and at the pail  they are found on the average as good  as any breed. While probably not giving as large a flow as some other  breeds, they hold out well. Some of  the cows refuse to be dried off before  calving.  While we do not claim for the Devon  the animal that gives the largest flow  of milk or makes the largest beef, our  plea is that for the general farmer,  who wants beeffand milk combined,  there is none its superior. The great  power of the Devon to effect a speedy  improvement in beef qualities is the  outcome,  of course,  of singular pre-  DEVON COW PEBN OF HAIiSDON.  [D. H. B. 15,477.   Property of W.

As to the dairy qualities of the Devon, they have been found A No. 1.  There is no breed giving a better quality of milk. Cows give thirty-five to  fifty-five pounds of milk per day, testing 4*4 to 6 per cent of butter fat and  making two to two and a half pounds  of butter per day. Therefore let the  Devon be given its rightful place  samong the breeds. The three B's for  the Devon are Beef, Butter and Beauty, concludes L. P.

Some of the Devon cows are profitable; others are not. That is true even  with the best and most pronounced  dairy breeds. But the breeders of  dairy cattle are not going along breeding as far away from the dairy conformation as they can, building up th������  beef form and carcass, establishing  beef heredity ��������� in short, doing all in  their power to eradicate the milking  quality by trying to make a cow as  wholly unfitted for doing work as sho  can be, says Hoard's Dairyman.  They try at least to breed toward the  construction of a dairy cow. The Devon scale of points calls for "an under  line as nearly as possible parallel with  tho line of the back"���������In other words,  a blocky beef form us near as possible. This Is tho form they breed for.  It Is tho old beef form pure and simple, and the breeders of these cattle  tell us that they arc brooding for milk,  are producing desirable milk cattle and  waut the dairy world to believe they  nro on the lines of dairy development.  As with tho Shorthorns, every cow  that shows decided talent for milk production stands iu marked contradiction In form and outlluo to tho acknowledged standard they aro breeding for.

I'  Your family doctor will explain to  you if you ask him, the mission of  the pores of the skin, and will tell  you of the dangers of using pore-  clogging powders for the chafings  ami irritations to which babies are  subject.  Any mother who has used Dr.  Chase's Ointment for this purpose  will tell you of how beautifully soft  and smooth it has kept the skin, and  of,how quickly it cured the chafing  or irritation.  Especially during the teething period children are likely to suffer from  eczema, and unless it is promptly  checked there is danger of it spreading to other parts of the body and becoming chronic.  There is no rival to Dr. Chase's  Ointment as a cure for baby eczema,  as it is usually called, and it can be  used with positive assurance that it  will not injure the most delicate skin,  but on the contrary, keep tt soft and  smooth.  Mrs. F. Clarke, Belmont, Man.,  writes:���������"My baby had eczema on  her ear. The sore was very bad and  nothing seemed to do her much good.  Hearing of uie remarkable cure Dr.  Chase's Ointment was making we  sent for some and after the third application the sore began to heal. I  am glad to say that it is quite well  now and we give the credit to Dr.  Chase's Ointment. We cannot recommend this preparation too highly."  Mr. Wm.

"When I began the use of Dr.  Chase's Ointment I had little hope of  relief but the result has been wonderful. From the first this preparation  gave relief from the dreadful itching  and it has now brought about a cure."

A UNIQUE WINTER.  WONDERS OF THE  DESERT MIRAGE  i  r  ***La   Explanation   of   This   Peculiar  Freak ot Nature.  One of nature's true wonders���������one  upon which much has been written,  but which is yet not understood when  its varied phenomena are considered���������  Is the desert mirage. Travelers In the  arid regions of the western and southwestern United States tell wondrous  tales concerning the Bpectral pictures  (which the desert mirage has presented  for their inspection. Cool sheets of water and waving trees and grassy  "i^aTd^appeYf^K  be parched earth and burning sands.  Occasionally a mountain range will appear on what is known to be a boundless stretch of level plain, or a herd of  deer, cattle or other animals will be  eeen apparently contentedly grazing  on the glassy surface of the atmosphere. Cities aro occasionally seen  hundreds of miles from civilization,  and phantom ships have been known  to loom up against the sky and appear  ������������������as real vessels to persons who lived  jeo far away from the waters that they  /had never taken tbe trouble to visit tbe  -seacoast and who bad never seen a  ���������real ship.  The explanation of tbe mirage, ������������������  ���������usually given, is as follows:  Tho sand, being Intensely hot, causes  ���������the layers of air which rest upon It to  ^become greatly rarefied, and under certain circumstances this layer is quite  ���������distinct from the denser stratum a few  ���������Inches or feet above it���������just as if It  were a sheet of water upon which oil  ���������rested.

Children's Answers,  A young teacher in one of the public  schools was telling a friend of hers  about the humorous answers made by  some of her pupils. Here is the answer of a bright boy in the geography  class: "Tbe mariner's compass was invented by a man always pointing toward the north." In another instance  the teacher had said to the class, "No  matter what the size of the circle, what  does It always contain?" She meant,  of course, 360 degrees. A boy, with an  air of wisdom, promptly replied, "A  hole." During a physiology lesson another boy, in answer to a question regarding the use of the human trunk,  said, "The trunk is that part of your  body which keeps you from being legs  all the way up to your neck."

"In the past fifteen winters there were  ten in which the mean tempf-rature ot  the four winter months was higbei  than that of the past winter, so that  1905-6 is not a record breaker. H nv-  ever, thirty-one degrees, t-he mean tern--  perature of last December and January, has only been exceeded twice, in  18*89-90 and in 1S31-2. Acc-pting the  observations as entirely reliable, January. 1835, was the mildest, with a temperature of 35.4, and 1SS0 the nsxt  mildest, with 32.7, or 1.7 degrees warmer than the mean of last January."  This was one of the statements of Mr.  R. F. Stupart^ director of the Dominion  meteorological -service at the Canadian  Institute recently, in an address on the  weather conditions of the past winter.  Speaking generally, Mr, Stupart stated  that the weather of Che whole winter  had { been warmer than average  throughout the western provinces, while  in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritime  Provinces the first two months of winter wers warmer Chan average, and  the latter twe perhaps a little lower.  It was claimed that the contention  of the old Inhabitant that the winters  used to be colder was not confirmed  from the official records. There had  been no really mild winters for the last  fifteen years, while before that, so far  as is known, there were several. The  Slowest tiunperature ever rcorded In Toronto, 26.5 below, occurred in 1850, otherwise a mild winter. In one winter,  1901-02, zero was never touched, neither was that ebb reached during December or January of this winter.  The snowfall of the winter just closed  had been only 30 inches, which was less  than any other on record, excepting 1877-78, when 28 inches had been  the limit. Coming to the weather warnings of the service on the great lakes,'  the speaker said 94' per cent. of. them  had been verified in the last six months,  which was the best record they had  ever had. There was, he said, no meteorological service or bureau anywhere  that made a better showing with reference to accuracy. The general equipment of the service, was quite good.  "We can now be fairly certain," said  Mr. Stupart, "of outlining the areas of  high and low pressure over the Dominion, within the region reached by  telegraph, with a fair degree of accuracy."

AldReid's aolion in excluding  the public from a regular meeting  of a city board, is the most uncalled  for insult to tbe public that Cumberland hesever experienced. Aid  Reid peeius to lose sij-ht of the fact,  ���������if he ever knew it-���������that the council is a body of Public servant*, put  where they are by the public to do  its work, But evidently the txolu-  eioii of the public wan not Iteid's  object, so much as the exclusion of  W. B. Anderson. Tho statement  wrunc from him shows thin, "You  insulted me in Short':; building".  For this statement we brand Jim  Reid, without heal ing about the  bush, a liar, nnd challenge him to  refute tbe imputation. The mutter then stands thu**. If Reid,  through pergonal diuHkeof an individual, does the public he is sup*  posed <o serve nn injustice, he is not  fit to i-ervo that public, for this is  the result or murownes*- of mind or  ignorance, or both, and either attribute nhould he a bar. It aenin, he  wishes a hole inthe corner meeting  because be desires to say things he  is ashamed of, or that he (ears will  resch tho public ea., be should not  be on any pwblio body, for his action then is much akin to thai of  the i'i'Ty>n ������'.h" nnuirl i\ uf������t!���������*���������*���������;(nn*  **Poorhon������u" notice on a public  building door���������beneath contempt.

Of course if the  Schoolmaster Editor told them to  do it. probably they would fall over  each other in batne&ing to do the  bidding, but meanwhile, it would  be better for the school master to  post himself on local matters, and  not further display his ignorance by  rushing into print. He might do  for the school Board, but the public  wont stand for it.  SELLING NURSERY   STOCK  DIRECT -  ���������, o ���������.
