BREEDING TURKEYS.  Shelter Housch Needed Only In Very  CoUX Climate*.  Turkeys do better when they can  roost in tbe open. If well fed they will  thrive more in the shelter of the trees  than in a close confined house, says  , the Feather. The troubles thut arise  j. from allowing,them to live in the trees  are that they become wild and frequently are stolen. If housed their  quarters should be airy, roomy and  perfectly clean. It is not wise to havo  them roost with other poultry. If  found necessary to confine them all  that is necessary is a shed or house  that will protect them from the elements and marauders of all kinds and  at the same time not be too confining  for them. Place the roosts well up  from the floor and keep the interior  perfectly clean and free from vermin.  In localities where it is not too cold  during the winter months it is better  to allow the breeding stock to roost  out in the open, either in the trees or  upon   roosts ..prepared  for  them   by  ���������planting posts fhfft~prole^rabout~eight-  Poultry Note*.  Keep the birds scratching. Idleness  brings on disease.  Koep the houses dry and clean and  avoid roup and lice.  Board floors not covered "with earth  will cause bumble foot  Cull the chicks from the day they  aro hatched and keep it up.  Paint the roosts with a mixture of  kerosene and coal tar, and the chickens will not be troubled with mites.  Never frighten the poultry under  any circumstances, as they will remember it and be wild and unmanageable.���������Faath������i-.  The First Telefcraph.  The first actual communication  through an electrical circuit was made  iu ITS", when Lamond. a French philosopher, placed two electrical machines in different rooms in his house  and connected, tbem by wire. He  agreed with his wife that tho movements of little pith balls should be  understood to mean certain letters and  in this manner carried on regular conversation.  DANGEROUS  COLDS  TUBKKY HOOSB,  feet nbove tho* ground. Upon these  place long pol.s about two or two and  a. half inches in diameter for roosta.  Roosting places .of this kind nro better  ���������sheltered when located on the south  sido of a barn or building. The writer  bas seen a flock of turkeys which go  tho year round, to such a roost. Thoy  belong to one of tho most successful  turkey growers of Uhodo Island, and  they llvo'continually in tho open, not  having even the shelter of tho trees.  In colder climates, whoro shelter  must bo provided, a house may bo  built tlmt in fashioned after many  of our poultry houses with tho slanting  roof. An open ventilator should be  placed in front, close to tho roof, and  never be cloned except in cold weivthor.

Influenza, Bronchitis, Pneumonia or  Consumption Often Follow a Neglected Cold���������Avert the Danger by  Keeping the Blood Pure and Warm.  Heavy colds strain the' lungs, weaken the chest, banish'" the appetite,  cause melancholy. Pale weak people, whose hands and feet are chilled  for want of rich, red blood, always  catch cold. Their lungs are soft���������the  heart cannot send out blood enough  to make them sound and strong.  Then comes the cold and cough, racking the frame and tearing the tender  lungs. The cold may turn into pneumonia, -influenza, consumption or  bronchitis���������a lingering illness or a  swifter death. All weak people should  use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. The  rich, red blood they make strengthens  tho heart, and it sends this warm,  healing blood to the lungs, and once  again the patient is a strong-lunged,  warm-blooded man 'or woman. , Mrs.  Jane A. Kennedy, Douglastown,  Que., bears the strongest testimony  to the value' of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills in cases of this kind. She says:  "My sister, a delicate girl, took a  severe cold when almost seventeen  -years-oid.���������Ms.-tried many medicines^  for her, but she appeared to be constantly growing worse, and we feared she was going into consumption.  Often after she had a bad night with,  a racking cough, I would get up to  see if sho had spit any blood. At this  stage a friend strongly urged me to  give her Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  Within a month from the time she  began to take the pills she had almost recovered her usual Health. Under a further use of the pills she is  now well and strong, and I can recommend the pills with confidence to  every weak person."  Dr, Williams' Pink Pill8 aro. a certain cure for all blood and nerve  troubles, such as anaemia, debility,  lung complaints, rheumatism, neuralgia, St. Vitus dance, partial paralysis, and tho troubles that make the  lives of so many women miserable,  Be sure you get tho genuine pills  with the full name, "Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills for Pale People," on the  wrapper around each box, Sold by  all medicine dealers or sent by mail  at 50 cents a box or six boxes for  $2.50, by writing the Dr. Williams'  Mediclno Co., Brockvlllo, Ont.

Mr. Jones was very fond of a kind of  boiled pudding his wife made, so, Bays  London Answers, when she had gone  away for an afternoon and evening she  promised that she would leave one of  the favored puddings in the saucepan  for his evening meal.  "Well," she said on her return, "and  how did the pudding go down?"  "Soo-preme!" said Tom, smacking his  lips at the recollection. " 'Twas as good  a pudding as you have ever made."  "That's good," was the gratified response of Mrs. Jones. "I'm glad you  enjoyed it. What did you do with the  cloth?"  For a moment Mr. Jones solemnly  surveyed her.  "What!" ho said "Did it have ���������  tloth on?" _  No Cnuao For Worry.  Mrs. de Firm���������I tremble to think of  our daughter marrying that young  man.

Control   of  Bronch itis  Is Endoubtedly Possessed by th������ Well-known  Family Medicine,  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Terpentine  Turpentine is considered a specific  for bronchitis.  The difficulty has been in the administration of the turpentlno so as  to reach the Irritated and inflamed  parts and not be disagreeable to the  patient.  Not only has the trouble been overcome by Dr. Chase in his Syrup of  Linseed and Turpentine, but he has  also combined with turpentine two or  three ingredients of almost equal power  in soothing and healing the diseased  parts and overcoming bronchitis and  other dangerous ailments of the  bronchial tubes and lungs.  By a secret process these elements  of unquestioned and medicinal power  have been combined in Dr. Chase's  Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine so  as to be pleasant to the tatse and  suitable for children and adults alike.  The remarkable success of Dr. Chase's  Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine as a  cure   for   bronchitis,   asthma,   croup  and whooping cough Is sufficient '-evidence that it is effective in ordinary  coughs and colds.  MRS. RICHMOND WITHROW.  Shubenacadie, Hants Co., N. S.,  writes:  "I have used Dr. Chase's Syrup of  Linseed and Turpentine with good  success. My second daughter was  troubled with-bronchitis from the age  of three weeks. Oftentimes. I thought  she would choke to death. The several remedies we got did not seem to  be of much use, but the first'dose of  Dr. Chase's Syrup. of Linseed and  Turpentine has saved us many doctor's bills, and I would not be without it in the house for many times  its cost."  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and  Turpentine, 25 cents a bottle, at all  dealers, or Edmanspn, Bates & Co.,  Toronto. To protect you against imitations the portrait and signature of  Dr. A. W. Chase, the famous receipt  book author, are on every bottle.  A  BOON  TO  CHILDREN.  A medicine that will keep infants  and young children plump, good na-  tured, with a clear eye and a rosy  skin, is a boon not only to mothers,  but to humanity. Such a medicine is  Baby's,Own Tablets, which promptly  cure all the minor ailments of little  ones, and makes them eat well, play  well and sleep well. You can safely  take the words of thousands of mothers who have proved the value of  these Tablets; for instance, Mrs. J.  R. Standon, Weyburn, N. W. T., says-i  "I have proved the great value of  Baby's Own Tablets'in cases of diarrhoea, constipation, hives, and when  teething, and I would not be without  them." The Tablets are equally good  for the tenderest little baby or the  well grown child, and they are guaranteed free from opiates and harmless.

Proper   Cnre   E*MHentlnl   to   Make   a  Mock   Profltuble.  In earing for a dock of fowls there  are certain duties for every day iu the  year, and it would be a wise idea for  every poultryiuan to have a desk calendar and mark on each leaf his particular duties for the day, says J. T.  Schureman In Commercial Poultry.  Success always keeps just a few  days ahead of the fellow who is always procrastinating, and he never  catches up with it.  He puts off from day to day the  cleaning and disinfecting of the poultry  house, and the first thing he knows  cholera 1ms attacked his fowls, and,  uuless stringent measures are taken,  tho whole flock will be infected and a  good share of them lost.  "Tomorrow" he intpuds to dust the  hens and growing stock with lice powder, but boforo ho gets at it two or  threo hens aro found dead on tho nost  and tlio balance of tho flock ts so tlilu  and emaciated that tho profits for the  noxt six months aro sacrificed.

Along about flrst of December he is  looking up roup cure advertisements.  He really intended to batten up the  cracks in the poultry house and fix the  roof a little, but somehow he never  got at it, and now his fowls have got  the roup.  And so it goes. He is always just  a few days behind hand the year  around, and instead of reaping a profit  from his fowls they are a positive loss  to him. .  A Famous -Orpington.

Beginning as a copyist for one  of the observatory professors, she soon  undertook the simpler computations  and at once showed that she possessed  the rare and peculiar mental faculties  necessary for scientific research, says  a writer In Modern Women.

AFFECTION IN JAPAN.  A Card of Identification.  Before starting out on a journey, be  It long or shortVa woman should al-,  ways provide herself with n means of  identification in case of accident. It Is  wise to fasten securely to the inside of  one's coat or gown a card on which are  plainly written one's own name and  address, the name and address of tho  place one has come from ond ls going  ta Oo tbo other nldo of tbo card hR^fl  the name and address of some persoa  to whom a message could be sent if  necessary. This simple means of identification is within the reach of the  poorest traveler and may save friends  or relatives much expense and worry.  Then the thought of being carried  away to the hospital or morgue without the knowledge of friends should be  sufficiently horrible to every woman  to make her think up some means of  avoiding such a calamity. Sensible women do not even go on a shopping trip  without an identification card fastened  securely to the inside of the bodice.  It is well also when traveling to  paste to the lining of a purse, handbag,  satchel and suit case a card with one's  name and address. If any of these  things get lost one stands a chance of  recovering it and if any be stolen the  thief may be moved to return it for a  reward.���������New York Tribune.  MBS. Wir-MABIINA P.

Here, in the course of  examining photographic plates, over  1,000,000 of which have come under  her special observation, Mrs. Fleming  has discovered a great number of variable stars and confirmed the discov-  ery of several new ones. During the  "last fifteen years nine new stars have  been discovered, and of these six were  discovered by her. It is due to hev  effort that the number of kuoivn stars  whose spectrum is of the third type  has been increased from-1,000 to 3,000,  while the number of the rare class of  fifth type stars has been raised from sixteen to fifty-seven, In addition to various  other celestial achievements she has  the honor of being the first discoverer  of the planetary nebulae by means of  photography. Besides looking after all  tbe routine work done by her assistants  Mrs. Fleming helps to edit the annals  of the observatory aud finds time now  and then to contribute articles to astronomical journals.  Study of Domestic Science.  Regarding domestic science as a profession, Anna Barrows, writing in the  Ohautauquan, says that the young  woman of average ability and education who has taken two years of special  training in the arts and sciences underlying the routine of daily life of a  household, large or small, who does not  expect a position made to suit .her, but  who is ready to cope with Bdifficultiies,  will find the worid waiting for her  help in several directions. She may  teach domestic science in public or  private schools or lecture before women's clubs. She may direct the dietaries  and feed large numbers of persons in  hospitals and schools or send into other  homes food prepared under her own  roof. It is doubtful whether there are  any occupations in the world which are  so certain to be lasting as those that  deal with our daily food.  It  Ii   Beep   and   Lasting;,   hut,   as   a  Rule, Not Outspoken,  Public demonstration of affection is  most repugnant to the good taste of  the Japanese, aud it is the absence of  this which is so generally mistaken  for a lack Of genuine feeling. I recall  one man who was so devoted to his  mother (though I doubt whether be  could ever have been said to have  "talked about" her) that when she died,  while he was abroad, his depression  was so profound that my busbaud  watched him with anxiety lest he  should commit suicide. Tne stoical  training, may render more unsympa-.  thetic a coarse nature, but repression  to the refined soul brings an" exquisite  capacity for pain scarcely conceivable  by those who are free to give utterance to every emotion.  Another man said to me, "I rarely  speak of my mother, for a foreigner  does not understand that a Japanese  mother may be just as dear to her son  as his to him and by the Japanese it  is not expected that one should utter  one's deepest feeling." That same  son fainted with grief when his mother died and when consciousness returned rose to make light of a "littlo  dizziness," without reference to its  cause. To this day, whenever he goes  from home, he carries with him his  mother's letters, motinted on a beautiful roll of ivory and brocade, and on  the anniversary of her passing beyond  his mortal ken quietly devotes a portion of the day to meditation and special thought, of her.., Even to his wife,  despite the closest bond of love, he  says not, "This is the day of my mother's death."���������Outlook.  CRUSTY CARLYLE.  The Paris' Deteetlvea;  The Paris decte'etive has a great  reputation for tracking down the criminal. He has achieved that distinction,  first, by his native wit and resource;-  secondly; by the extended use he  makes of the informer, who may be,  of the criminal class himself. Nu-j  merous are his disguises. One day he j  lias tbe olotbes as well as the speech  and manners of. a voyou, the next he  is on tlie race course, his accent changed as well as his outward appearance  --a chic monsieur���������engaged in watching the doings of a turf syndicate. As  an instance of tbe modern methods of  the Purls Surete, one may mention the  half dozen motor cars which it possesses and which are always at the disposition of the force to proceed at once  to the scene of a tragedy or robbery.  The other day the automobile was used  with effect in a case of burglary of a  chateau at Versailles. The police had  news that the burglars themselves  were mounted in an automobile. They  gave chase, proceeding by side roads,  until they came up with the offenders,  who were promptly arrested and their  motor car run off to La Fourriere, the  police pound of Paris, where is gathT  ered together the lost, stolen or strayed  of the domestic animal world, as well  as , the oddest assortment of police  trophies.���������World's Work. .,.-  i Childlike Innocence.

"But," queried tho attractive young  hostess, with tho most serious and  wide eyed Innocence, "when you were  sure that you had the fish on tho lino  why didn't you just pull hlra in right  away?

Dr. Lyman Abbott says that today  the tourist is shown in the cathedral at  Durham, England, a cross set in the  stoile floor a comparatively little way  up tbe nave from the entrance and ia  told that it was once the boundary line  beyond which women worshipers must  not pass. They were kept, as a sort of  secondary class of humanity, at a distance from the chancel and the altar.  Fashions in religious thought and observance change as in everything else.  Then women were not believed to be  high enough in the social scale to worship with their husbands, sons and  fathers. Now they worship as proxies  for the masculine portion of tbe community.���������World's Work.

Carlyle suffered from dyspepsia and  disappointment. He was therefore neither oversympathetic in intercourse  with his friends nor fair in his estimates of other writers,  Though he personally liked Tennyson, he spoke with Impatience of his  "cobbling his odes," dismissed Jane  Austen's novels as "dish washings,"  Hallam, the historian, as "dry as dust*'  and Goldsmith as an "Irish blackguard."  Even the writers of editorials in the  rp.ress_were,_salutedjvith���������this,har.d^_ay-,  ing: "What are these fellows doing?  They only serve to cancel one another." A characteristic anecdote Illustrates his cruel disposition, which provoked him to inflict pain even on a  friend.  An artist who frequented Carlyle'a  house painted a picture of him in his  dressing gown smoking a pipe by the  fireside and Mrs. Carlyle in an arm-,  chair sitting opposite him. The picture was hung at one of the Royal  academy's exhibitions and, though not  They Didn't Observe.  "Gentlemen, ye dinria use your fak-  ulties of obsairvatiou." said the old  Scotch professor, addressing his class.  Here he pushed forward a gallipot containing a chemical compound of exceedingly offensive smell.  "When I was a student," he continued, "I used my sense of taste, sae."  And with that he dipped his finger into  the gallipot and put his finger into his  mouth. "Taste it, gentlemen; taste it,"  said the professor, "and exercise your  perceptive fakulties.''  The gallipot was pushed toward the  reluctant class.. One by one the students .resolutely dipped a finger into  the abominable concoction and witb  many a wry face sucked the abomination from their fingers.  "Gentlemen, gentlemen," said the professor, "I must repeat that ye dinna  use your fakulties of obsairvation, for  if ye had looked mair closely at what  I was daein' the noo ye would hae  obsairved that the finger which I put  into ma mooth was nae the finger that  Tdipped inWtbe'fallipot!"  An Bmperor'i Courage.  Here is a stqiy told of the courage  of Emperor Francis II. of Austria.  One arm of the Danube separates the  city of Vienna from a large suburb  called Leopold-stiidt. A thaw inundated this suburb, and the ice carried away the bridge of the communication with the capital. The population of Leopold-stadt was in great distress for want ������* provisions. A number of boats were collected and loaded  with bread, but no one felt hardy  enough to risk the passage, which was  rendered extremely dangerous by large  bodies of ice. Emperor Francis stood  at the water's edge. He begged, exhorted, threatened and promised the  highest recompenses, but all in > vain,  while on tbe other shore his subjects,  famishing with hunger, supplicated relief. The monarch's sensibility at  length got the better of his prudence.  He leaped singly into a boat loaded  with bread and applied himself to the  oars, exclaiming, "Never shall it be  said that I made no effort to save  those who would risk their all for roe!"  The example of the sovereign inflamed  the spectators, who threw themselves  into the boats. They encountered the  sea successfully and gained the suburb.���������Vienna Journal.  The- Gold Ferer,  When, many years ago, gold was  first discovered in Australia the ex-  citem������ut caused has probably never  been ei^aled in history.

A man who witnessed a fight between a porcupine aud a blacksnake  thus describes the battle: "I came upon  the scene just as the', hedgehog began  the attack upon the snake, which was  lyingo stretched out on the road asleep.  The hog advanced cautiously upon the  reptile and seized its tail in its mouth,  giving it a sharp bite. Then he quickly withdrew a few feet and, rolling  himself into a ft compact, spiny ball,  awaited developments. The snake  upon being thus rudely awakened  turned in fury upon his antagonist,  striking the hog again and again with  its fangs. The wily hedgehog, securely intrenched within its spiny armor,  remained perfectly motionless all the  while; allowing the snake to keep up  the attack. At every stroke the j aws  of the snake would become filled with  the spines until at last, exhausted and  bleeding from dozens of wounds caused by the needlelike spines of the hog,  the snake gave up the battle. This  was evidently what the hedgehog was  waiting for, as he immediately proceeded to roll over the snake again and  -again-until-be_-had_.completely���������dis.em?L,  boweled his victim."  a striking work of art, was purchased 1 &������ Gfeelong there was left only one  by Lord Ashburton, .Carlyle'a friend,  fdrfCOO.  The delighted artist hurried off to  the Carlyles, expecting congratulations  on the sale and some manifestation of  pleasure on their part at having such  a value set on a picture of themselves  and tbelr domestic Interior, He delivered bis glad tidings, but all the response ho received from Carlyle was:  "Well, in my opinion, ������500 was just  ������405 too much."

As chief of stafi to Gen. Middlcton,  the Earl of Minto, then Lord Melgund, saw some rough campaigning  in tho Canadian rebellion of 1885,  and on his recent ride across the  prairies he must have recalled tho  time, twenty years earlier, when he  rode there as a soldier, ever on the  alert for the hidden' foe. Col. Deni-  son, in his interesting book, "Soldiering in Canada," gives the following account of his meeting with Lord  Melgund:  "I was sound asleep in my tent  about 4 o'clock the next 'morning,  May 10, when I was awakened by  hearing a voice saying to the sentry,  'Which is Col. Denison's tent?' The  sentry pointed it out, but I was up  before he had done it, and pulling on  my jack-boots, which was all I had  to do to be, completely dressed, I unhooked the tent door and said to  the'officer, 'Come in.' As he bent hia  head to come in, I saw a staff officer's cap, and thought it must bo  Capt. Freer, the general's aide, but  when ho got in and stood up I saw  it was Lord Melgund. * * .* * I  know Lord Melgund was chief of staff,  and that a battle had been fought  the day before, and it startled mo to  , see the chief of staff fifty-five miles  to the rear by the morning. All this  went through my mind in an instant,  and I said, 'What news have you  from the general?' He lowered his  voice, so that the sentry should not  hear him, and said, 'Well, it is not  good.' 'What!' said I; 'surely he' has  not been defeated?' 'No,' he replied,  'but ho has had a check. He tried to  drive the enemy out, but' could not  succeed, and he has fallen back a  little way, and formed a defence with  his wagons, and thero they are. Soma  thought he had better retreat, but it  was considered that that would have  a bad moral effect, and ho has determined to stick it but.'���������He; then said,  'I want to send off some telegrams  at once.' The operator was away,  trying to mend the line beyond us,  but one of my sergeants was an excellent operator, so I awakened him  and we went down to the station.  On the side of an old hayrack, leaning , against the, back of the (log shanty which constituted .Humboldt, with  his cipher book before him, Lord Melgund wrote out his despatches. I  walked up and down the grass, and  saw the sun rise on a lovoly May  TOWning���������everythlng-^^  ful, and I could not help thinking of  the anxiety this news would carry  to many a home in Manitoba and  Ontario. ���������  Sorry to I>ave the Fraat.  "Lord Melgund came back to our  camp, where breakfast had been pro-  pared. He then, slept till about 1 p.  m., when ho had dinner, and I furnished him with a fresh horse to  ride on towards Qu'Appelle, He never said a word about why he was  sent down, but tho impression was  that it was to get up somo regulars  from Halifax. ������ * * *" ��������� Lord  Melgund told me he was very much  arouse,to leaving, the front, but that  uea. Miacueton thought it necessary  to send him, as he had important  work for him to do. Just at thia  serious crisis of the campaign, the  telegraph lines were constantly interrupted and the events were thickening. Lieut.-Col. Otter had been defeated at Cut Knife on May 2nd, and  for four days the general was entrenched about half a mile from the  enemy's, advanced posts. During this'  period Humboldt became the end of  the telegraph line, and as I was in  command there, and the telegraph  operator away for some days trying  to repair the line from Humboldt to  Clarke's Crossing, the wholo wort  had to be done by Sergt. Harry Wilson, of the Body Guatd, who was aa  expert operator, We were, of course,  anxious about the general's position,  and I asked Lord Melgund whether  we Bhould not bring out all the  troops wa could hurry up and march  out to reinforce our comrades. He  advised me "to wait, and I found  that at any time I could not get in  couriers to the camp and receive replies, then it would be best to telegraph to the Government that, as  senior officer near, I was going to order forward all tho troops that I  could reach, and march to relieve  the general. Fortunately I had not  to take any such responsibility.   *   *  Surrounded 1*-* a Patrol. '.  "I did not see Lord Melgund again?  for 14 years, when as Earl pf Minto  and Governor-General ho held his  first reception in Toronto, when he  reminded me of meeting tho patrol  of my men on their way to the-Spa-  tinaw. Ho mot them a few miles (t  away from our post in the early  dawn. Lord Melgund was accompanied by an orderly, the Hon. Mr.  Fiennes, one of French's Scouts, &  son of Lord Saye and Sile. When the  patrol met them, two men rode out  rapidly to each flank and surrounded  them, much to the amusement of  Lord Melgund, who did not at first  understand what they were doing-  They showed him the .way to our  camp and then went on."  The Earl As An Jinperlallkt.  Nearly every other historian of the  memorable rebellion has had something to say about Lord Melgund,  and one and all speak with the utmost respect of the soldierly qualities he there displayed. He was recommended for honors by Gon. Middleton, but unfortunately the general  was at the time under a cloud, and  his representations were not given  much consideration. Since coming to  Canada as Governor-General it hae  ���������not���������been~possibIe-fpr.-His^-Excellency~  to prominently identify himself with  any particular circle or interest, but  it has been plain to all that he cherished the warmest recollection of his  comrades oh the prairie.

At the outset one is confronted  with a serious, an almost insuperable  difficulty. Frank Oliver Is one of the  most reticent of men in anything that  concerns himself. That is, on paper.  In personal conversation few men are  more frank, and outspoken, and he  will give his views oh any subject  requested with blunt directness. But  he is the despair of reporters and interviewers, who, as often- as not, find  thenisQlvos the victims, rather than  the operators, of their modern journalistic methods, Mr. Oliver can,  whenever he desires, be as uncommunicative as a clam.

The only time a father is more  foolish than when the baby has a  tooth is  when  it has  two.  the jaws of defeat. Withal, he has a  ievel-headed canniness that seldom  permits him to be placed in a false  position, a shrewdness that foresees  contingencies and avoids errors.  Frank Oliver is no Don Quixote to  run a-tilt'"into windmills, or to batter  his head against stone walls. Caution,  equally with courage, are his outstanding characteristics, both in his  personal anl political career.  As  an editor,  Mr.  Oliver exhibits  the same characteristics of energy as  he has shown in public life.   He took  hold of the Bulletin when Edmonton  was the most northerly of all Canadian towns, was practically isolated  from the rest of the Dominion, and  known principally    as a convenient  starting point for the journey    into  tho hunting and trapping regions of  Athabasca, the Peace and the Canadian   sub-arctics.

Everyone vvho  carries a gun can afford to pay   it,  and all who enjoy the spurt protected by the Government  should *be  williiig to pay something  towards  the cost of that protection.     The  Government  has   practically  protected the game aud the''sportsmen"  have piactically slaughtered it.    In  addition to the  numerous  benefits  accruing   from    this    license,   the  email boy, also the "man who can-  riot shoot straight" will  be pio.ect-  ed.      In many  cases   experienced  hunters have ueeu the  victims  of  -of-reckles:**--.shooter.s_\'^  every moving object they see in the  woods.     By  hecoming members of  the Gun Club a   boy  or  man   is  , taught lo handle his weapon,  the  various workings of a shot gun and  rifle are explained to him and when  he goes out for a   day's   pport   he  feels that he does so   without   endangering his own or his neighbor's  life by mismanagement.     Dealers  in game will be taught by the imposition of a license that it is a costly business lo offend   against   the  law, destroyers of   grouse  will   bo  deprived of a market for their contraband  goods,   and   in   general,  sportsmen will receive the ��������� benefits  of the (Statutes which weie meant to  be enforced.     The officers of the  club receive no ot-hei  reward than  the approving conBciouHiieBs of laboring in a worthy cause.    Therefore we submit the Gun Club  de-  eeives    acknowledgement  fur   the  good it haa done in the past unci encouragement in its (fforts for the future.     There   poems to be an idea  prevalent that the imposition of a  license is for the purpose of preventing a certain class irom shooting,  whereas the idea is to create a fund  to be applied to the preservation of  game for the  publio  good.     Any  person who nhoots for ihe sake of  ������������������port should bo ablo to pay tho nominal feo suggested.  and energies so under control, that  comparatively little effort seems required to accomplish even great  things.
