There are few men  in the camp who do not belong  to one or more of these societies  and for special reasons he values  each one of which he is a member, and it is right that he should  Organizations of tliis kind are a  great factor in uniting the forces  of men's actions; aud enabling  them to perform many kind acts  to men who are brethren of the  of the same lodge. The obligation of any of the societies if lived  up to tend to make a man a more  useful aud lawabidifig citizen.  Representatives of the Grand  Lodges of the province visit local lodges occasionally, aud the  members take the opportunity of  demonstrating the secret work of  the order to the best possible advantage and so as to merit the  praise of the visitor.  A lodge of Ancient Free and  Accepted Masons has been estab-  l'shed in the city for many years  and now has a membership of  over sixty,    On   Wednesday of  _las tr week GTand'iVlTister~F'rancis"  Bowser visited Cumberland No.  26 in his official capacity. The  members were there iu full force  to exemplify the secret work of  the Order, aud it would uot be  .making known .a^-'of yhe mysteries surrounding this society to  say that lie-expressed himself as  delighted with the work,.and com  pigmented tlie members upon hav  ing such comfortable quarters and  the interest taken in Masonry.  Later the members escorted the  Grand Master to the dining-room  of the Union Hotel where all en-  joyedthe many delicacies provider! for the occasion by mine host  and hostess.  No Masonic banquet is complete without some intellectual  entertainment, and after satisfying the inner man the following  programme was most heartily  rendered arid thoroughly appreciated. ;  ���������Piirool'orto Solo .....Bro, Morgan  Toast, "Tho King" "God Save, tho King."

M. accompanied by officers and  members of Cumberland drove  through 1 lie valley. Ii was Mr,  Bowser's first visit to the district  aud he was surprised to find such  a large aud prospcious farming  community on this part of Vancouver Island.

Settlers'Rights.  On Saturday evening a meeting, called by P. Phillips Harrison at Courtenay hotel parlors to  discuss Settlers' Rights was well  attended. Mr. Harrison after  calling the meeting to order explained the Settlers' Act and the  judgment rendered in the McGre  gor case, After much discussion  it was decided that the best meth  od of securing the decked coal  rights which some of the early  settlers believed they were entitled to was to make* application  aud have the time exteuded for  anotner twelvemonths. It was  also suggested that the ioo or  more settlers near Nanaimo seeking similar rights should be asked to co-operate with the Comox  farmers. The idea that some one  make a test case of claim in the  court did not meet with approval  of those present.  To carry out plans'to-best advantage the claims were divided  into two classes���������th������ squatters up  to 1883, and the pre-einptors between that date and 1887* Acorn  mittee from eacli class was appointed to confer with Mr Harrison iu arranging the necessary  details for preliminary work.  There are some thirty settlers  seeking coal rights as squatters,  and some twenty looking for the  sam.g rights as pre-emptors.  The many little friends of Miss  Louisa Bickle gave her a big sur  prise yesterday evening. To  morrow she leaves for Dr. Pope's  Academy in Victoria and as she  is very popular among the school  girls here they felt they could not  let her go away without carrying  with her some sweet remembrances of one good jolly evening,  Louisa went on an errand aud on  her return the house was full of  rollicking girl friends who had  come to spend the evening with  her. They say they had a grand  time.  Miss Reynard who has been  the guest of Miss M. Strang  returned to Vancouver on Tliurs  day last,  Mr P, Actou formerly of Nanaimo is now with S. Leiser & Co  at the Big Store.  Supper.  The Gun Cl"b members are  artists in the way of putting up  a game supper and ball. You  have all head of the last one even  if you were not thore. Some ������of  you know how you enjoyed yourself then. Sept. 4th will also be  a memorable day to you if you  spend that $2 for a ticket and  take your lady.  The supper aud ball is to bid  farewell to the trap-shooting sea-  sou for 1907. Since the ist the  members have been out shooting  and from reports reaching this  office there will be abundance of  game for the supper. One of the  most amusing features of the after-dinner speeches will be the  experiences of the boys as told  by Messrs Bate, Coe, Ramsay and  Ward and others, while %tDave"  will tell how he landed that 62-  lb salmon at Campbell river the  ���������other-' day. This will be worth  the price of the supper alone if  our man on the wing has scented the news aright.  There is but little doubt if all  work in unison-that the   provincial government will do everything to assist the Comox farm-  t ers in getting the desired claims.  _ What is Cumberland and the  Camp to have this winter by way  of entertainment for the young  men of the town? There are a  great many ways of spending the  long winter evenings aud thehdli  -days4hat-uow~and���������t-hen���������persist-  in presenting themselves. Interested parties have beeu talking  matters over aud planning that  the people arc ready for another  season of basket-ball. They tell  us a suitable, building can be gotten, and that some are very enthusiastic over the matter. Victories in football and basketball  have been won aud some of the  think it can be done again, It is  up to those interested to call a  meeting to organize and do it  quickly.  The hunting season has opened and for the last few days the  woods have been ringing with  the sound of fire-arms. If every  shot meant "a dead bird" or a  slain deer all the hunters will  this week have a-full  sack.  Deer are reported plentiful.  WANTED.

Haw many of us almost court un happiness by meeting it  halfway���������nay, more, a large.uumber  of us positively welcome it because it  gives us a grievance and we like to  feel like martyrs. There is a sort of  feeling of glorious heroism in suffering  "untold mental a::guish" that tugs at  the heartstrings and makes all the  world look black, especially when we  take a friend into our eoufiJeiice and  he w she condoles with us.  But we must all learn to keep our  troubles to ourselves and uot tell them  to all and sundry. True heroism lies  in patiently bearing our worries and  anxieties in solitude. Bury your sorrow in the depths of your own heart.  Things thus securely covered are often cured without a scar, but when  they are once published and confided  to meddling friends there is no eud to  the .trouble they may cause.  If your feelings are injured, don't  brood over your poor wounded self.  Rather pray for that poor misguided  sister who slighted you. Perhaps sbe  may have done so quite unfittingly.  Perhaps some of us have husbands,  brothers and sisters who are rery unkind, who wound us cruelly \iy bitter  words, angry retorts and much selfishness.  If this sad state of things exists, we  must keep it to ourselves even if it is  only" for tlie sake of those who offend  us. for by taking any one Into our confidence we must necessarily divulge to  our friends the shortcomings of our  fellows. To do this is adverse to all  laws of Christianity. We must be  charitable; we must patiently bear  with those.who cause us, stabs of pain:  we must ask that their hearts be softened and that they may be brought to  see with a trots, clear mind tbe misery  they bring to others by their unruly-'  tongues. Rest assured that those who  utter bitter words and unkind criticisms have moments of regret and re~  morse and pangs of conscience. Were  the truth known, they actually suffer  far more than the recipients of their  hasty and ill judged attacks.  -���������After���������allr^-troubles���������are-^transient-  things, and when they are all pass*ed  and sorrow is outside the door what a  comfort it is to say:  "No one ever knew until It was over  with us."

O MANY otherwise pretty rooms  ^    are  spoiled by being overloaded  .v}   that if seems strange that more  v-*'   people do not wake up to the fact  that it is too much   rather than too  little   that is  the  matter with  many  modern rooms.  Elaborately carved bookcases are loaded down with useless bric-a-brac, the  kinds hopelessly confused. A plaster  Cupid may share honors with a bronzed  (not bronze, save the mark!) Bacchante,  the space between littered perhaps with  useless trash���������trinkets with no value at  all, even from a curio collector's standpoint, and with no excuse certainly for  breaking the beauty of the straight,  simple lines.  A bookcase isn't the sort of thing  to be heaped with bric-a-brac. One or  two things are all very well, but' it is  pre-eminently a thing with, a use to it���������  that of holding your books���������and when  it divides that honor with the questionable one of acting as a shelf to pile  things upon, it is made anything but  artistic. ���������������������������������,..*���������.  -���������Go-into-some���������houses���������filled���������to-over  flowing - with so-called ''handsome"  pieces. You have to be careful where  you walk���������there are fussy little chairs  here, and absurd little cabinets0there���������  not cabinets bought to hold treasured  curios, but got to look effective by virtue  of their gold paint and pink plush linings ; their curios���������an afterthought-  bought to fill them up as elaborately as  the overcrowded room they echo.  Sofa pillows���������not piled in a comfortable confusion, but set importantly one  by one���������are hopeless sort of affairs,  made of white or pink or yellow satin,  embroidered or, painted in a way that  is a relic of the (fortunately) lost art of  making tidies.  Hangings share the same general fate  .-one pair of curtains apparently Isn't  enough for anywhere, and the simple  straight hanging tx thing never by any  possibility indulged in.  Carpets and paper and furniture clash  inharmonlously���������it's as though everything had a voice and was trying to  make itself heard, high above the rest.  The worst of it all Is that there Is absolutely no excuse for that sort of  thing���������not even the excuse of economy.  For thoso frills and elaborate carvings  and upholstering and the other details  of the confusions are costly. Bad taste  is made to pay!  And, on the otner side, there are no  two minds, when once the question is  fairly looked into. The simpler types  wear well, ln the sense that you don't  get tired of them as well ua in actual  hard wear.

There is no  doubt about it now, Jiowever; that  the dainty batiste blouse���������that fascinating creation of handwork and  filmy lace���������has been made to take  second place, at least for formal  occasions. ,  What has caused this downfall?  Let us not ask! "Le roi est"���������if  not "mort," lit least in a rapid decline.

These new blouses are not so  much to be used as separate waists  as to form part of a harmonious  and complete costume. We find the  nu>st fragile materials made np with  trimmings of broadcloth, velvet or  the same fabric as the skirt and  jacket with \vhich they are to be  ���������worn.  There has been a gradual drifting  back to the whole costume for several seasons���������a drifting that has  been more than welcomed by the  woman of "too, too solid flesh," to  whom the sharp dividing line of  white waist and dark skirt was a  constant and unpleasant reminder  of her avoirdupois and lack of  inches. This winter it may, however,,  be said to have finally arrived.

Thft.  lace  is so arranged  that it peep*,  out  between  slashes   of  the clotU  both on waist and sleeves in a most;-  bewitching fashion.   Tiny site buttons and loops of silk cord the same-  shade as tbe cloth are used as. a.,  trimming.  All these waists have the deep*  Empire girdles, high in bock aw*,  rounding in front. They either-  match the skirt or else are made of  the velvet or cloth with which the  blouse is trimmed. They all faster*,  in the back with buckles or ornaments.  Even where the lace or net blouses  are not made to match a special  costume, most of them show a touch.,  of color in them in the way of velvet,  bows or folds put on in odd design*,  ���������not so much as to be garish, but:,  just enough to give an indescribably Frenchy look.  The allover lace waists, in boths-  Well, there is a difference, and a'  wb}te an(j cream, will, of course, be>  marked one, as every one will acknowledge who has admired the  stylish and becoming effect of white  or cream net peeping out from  bands of velvet or, silk or froin'a  slashed arrangement of cloth to  match a skirt. It is just .the .differ-,.  ence"between aiptehwOTlrquilt^ahd-  a plain silk coverlet of eiderdown.  Frequently, too, the nets are dyed  to match the gown in color, in  which case less of cloth of velvet is  required to make up a congruous  whole.  Besides the attractiveness, this  adaptation of the separate net waist  has the merit of economy. With  one of them the ordinary ^ street  suit   can   be   transformed   into   a  worn; so will the lingerie ones, hy  the wny. They are too conveniens:  to be discarded, but they are certainly outdistanced in popularity bjp  the new ones to.match the suits.

In this way the blouse Can'also  be utilized to wear as a house dres*  with a white cloth or voile skirt.  One of the prettiest of the all-  white waists is of an allbvor German valenciennes lace in rntftcr fc  deep cream, embroidered with heavily padded coin and pin dots,' Such  a blouse worn with a white,skirt ia  extremely useful for an evening at-  dressy house gown by merely removing the jacket.  w  Tho designs shown are to be worn home or to assist at an "informal  ith cloth or velvet suits, either in littlo tea.   For, after all, nothing is  with  the house or under the coat.  Particularly* charming is the upper one that goes with a velvet  gown in thc new smoke-gray that  is so good this winter.

Iu him a touch  of dignity had sobered the  careless eye of youth. He was indeed  a comely young man, his attire fashionable, his form erect Soon he was  ou the familiar road to Robin's Inn.  In the air was an odor of the harrowed  earth, and up in the hills a shout of  greeting came out of field or garden as  Trove went by. It was a walk to remember, and when he had come near  the far side of Pleasant valley he  could see Polly waving her hand to  him at the edge of the maple grove.  "Supper is waiting," said she merrily as she came to meet him. "There's  blueberries and biscuit and lots of nice  things."  '���������Pm" hungry," said he. "But first,  dear, let us en toy love and kisses."  Then by the lonely road he held her  close to him, and each "could feel the  heartbeat of the other, and for quite a  moment speech would have been most  idle and inadequate.  "Now the promise, Polly," said he  Boon. "I go not another step until I  have your promise to be my wife."  "You do not think I'd let one treat  me that way unless I expected to marry him, do you?" said Polly as she  fussed with a ribbon bow, her face red  with blushes.   "You've mussed me all  ������p" '.".'���������/..  "I'm to be a teacher in the big  school, and if you were willing we  could be married soon."  "Oh,  dear!"  said" she,  sighing and  /  looking up at him with a smile. "Pm  too happy to think." Then followed  another moment of silence, in which  the little god, if he were near them,  must have smiled.  "Won't you name the day now?" hf  insisted.

High   Sounding   Names   Mean   "Don't  Know" or "I Forget"  We might spend%jx entertaining half  hour over many a! fine atlas sheet if we  were able to detect the unconscious humor sometimes displayed, even in conspicuous type, says the New York Sun.  On maps of German East Africa the  word "Sougo" has appeared for several  years as the name of one of the native  countries. We now learn that Songo  is not a geographical name, but that  it conveys exactly the same Idea that  we express when wo fail to recall the  name of some object and so call It  "thingumbob." Undoubtedly au explorer had asked the name of the country from his guide, who had forgotten  it and had escaped the difficulty by the  easy intellectual process oiJ calling it  Songo. We shall stand on firm ground,  if we call that fair and populous land  Losailik iu future.  A mountain in that same region was  introduced to the rest of the world under the name "Atorigini," a dignified  appellation and pleasant to the ear.  But the next editions of the maps must  blot it out and substitute something  that sounds barbaric, for "Atorigini"  means simply "I forget." It was another case of lapse of memory on the  part pf n guide;  It is gratifying to hear that one African place name isto be wiped off the  maps, not so much because it is ludicrously inaccurate as because it is so  long that it interferes with other information when printed on a small  scale map. One day an explorer asked  a native the name of a certain large  settlement The man did not under-.,  stand the question, but took the opportunity,, to remark, "Olotoiboiologunj a,"  which means, "Your servant has gone  on ahead." Down went the expression  on the traveler's map as the name of  the town.  Cuba's Forts Are Now Show Places.  The forts of Cuba are interesting  from a historic point of view as wel.  as for the purpose to which they have  been put since the establishment of the  republic. During the early days of  Spanish rule these forts were sotneV  times called upon" to defend the island  from-foreign-invaslon-and-often-from--  pirates. but during the last fifty years  they were generally used as prisons  for the custody of natives who may  have violated the law or incurred the  displeasure of the authorities. Today  they are mere show places, although  some are occupied by-the constabulary  of the island, who are known as the  rural guard. These peace officers were  organized in 1S90 and were chiefly recruited from the ranks ot the Cubau  army, Many of these young men aro  now stationed at forts where tbelr fathers met death in their struggle for  liberty.-Mrs. 0. R. Miller In Leslie's  Weekly.  Peers' v7nb"uve "AD?6ad.  There are three British peers, if not  more, who belong to families who  have for generations been settled in  distant countries, and who have practically had nothing to do with Britain for many years. Indeed, some  of these peers have never even set  foot in England at all.  There is, for instance, the Earl of  Soaflold. Enrly in the last century the  then earl emigrated to New Zelaand  and married there. His sons have  never seen their father's native land.  The family has remained, nnd today James Grant Ogilvie of New Zen-  land, 30 years of age, and also married, is the undoubted Earl of Sea-  field, though he never uses the title,  but works hard with his hands to earn  his living, just like any now-comeir into the colony.  Then there is Baron Fairfax of Cameron, whose forefathers wont ont to  Virginia long ago, The present lord  was boru in America in 1870, and certainly never used his rightful title,  nor even visited England until be was  woll past 30.  Even moro striking is tho case of  Baron Aylmor, who Ts a Canadian ln  ovory wny, for both "lie and his father  were born In Canada. Lord Aylmer is  prnotleally unknown in the United  Kingdom.

Charming Account of a Visit Paid to  Strange People.  'In a recent number of The Tour du;  Monde, Mle. Mehant, the well*?known  authority on Parsee life and- customs,  has a charming account of a vis.t pai J  to Mahableshwar. She appears to  know all about this lovely plateau,  and describes the hill tribes, the  Kolis, Kumbis, Dhangurs, and  Dhavars with kindly enthusiasm.  While recognizing their defects, she  does not share the old Hindu prejudice against the wild folk of the hills.  Describing the marriage customs of  the Dhangurs she says:  "When they want to ascertain the  favorable moment for the performance  of the rites (in case the Brahmin is  not able to consult the sacred books),  the young couple are made to sit before the door of a hut from which a  oow and then its calf are driven forth.  If the calf runs to its mother on tho  right of the seated pair, the ceremony can proceed. If, on the contrary, it passes them on the left, the  proceedings must be suspended, and  the trial must be begun over again.  Some grains of rice thrown over the  young people, a ring passed over the  bride's finger, and they are indissolu-  bly united!  Hardships tn Forest.  MUe. Menant recognizes the pecuV  iar hardships to which these people  of the hills  and the forest are exposed. .        ,  "Life is hard for these poor creatures," she says. "Theirs is an incessant struggle against poverty ana  the elements. Their food/composed  of the simple products of the forest,  is rarely sufficient. During the long  months of the monsoon, when tne  skies close down on the mountains,  and when the wind shakes the trees  of the forest, what is their lot? You  have only to visit the miserable huts  into which they crowd with their  cattle to understand the decrepitude  of the aged, withered and wrinkled,  men and women alike, with lean  shanks and deformed limbs. Between  the baby aboriginal, lively and joyous in his innocent nudity, and the  hoary, hairy old grandfather, bent  and impotent,, it is easy to guess the  long years of labor that intervene, and  the ravages arid inclemency of the  seasons. The notions of good and  evil, as we understand them, are  -fioatmg-and-vague-in-theiwninds.^to^.  their hearts and on their lips is the  eternal excuse of primitive man--  human weakness, the sole cause of  sin. Perhaps that is the best excuse  of all. THey wilfully avoid the civilizing influences of the mission and  the school.  Fear the Evil Eye.  You meet the young ones, laughter  in their eyes, their ready tongues  prattling some picturesque jargon,  some dialect of Mahrathi or Hindustani. But do not press them too  cloBely with questions, do not even  look at them too long. For they  are imbued with quaint old-world superstitions; they are haunted by the  fear of the evil eye, especially for  their children, cunning and light of  foot as little satyrs, ready to disappear with a sudden bound into tho  forest thickets.  "Often in our walks our only guides  were their womenfolk, and we followed them without hesitation, sure  of being led aright. Thoy munched  jungle berries, they laughed and jest-  ed, and cast defying glances at ono  another as they leapt from rook to  rock. But a single incautious word  would have put the uay, gentle things  to flight, and what a pity that wouid  have been!"  TEA TABLE  TRIMMINGS,  A Choice of Language.

At last, matters reached sueb a  crisiB that it was determined to ask  tho advice of a "wise man" or pundit. His advico was startling.

Since the custom of taking afternoon  tea is not only well established In this  country, but now in danger of becoming an untimely feast. It is astonishing  to note the numerous little dainties  and extra trimmings which are being  served to pique aud delight the appetite. It Is uo longer merely a cup of  tea and s, slice of thin bread and butter that may be expected between 4  and 5:30 o'clock. Jam has beeu added  to the list and often hot Scotch scones  and English tnu til us. Beside the tea  table proper there stands usually a sort  of rack table, pyramidal In shape and  having three shelves, one above the-  other and i-ound like plates. Each one  is covered with attractive china holding some fascinating biscuit or cake..  3-ani of one or two kinds is "suggested  In between them, and after the hostes*  has ascertained which jam and biscuit  her guest prefers she spreads it for  him herself before passing it on a small  plate. This little attention appears-  yery gracious.  Among the biscuits those of "health:  food" reputation are often found,and  the jam is spread over them to add to  their somewhat questionable tastiuess.  Other hostesses have fine, small, flat  wafers' of whole wheat covered -with.  chocolate in their own kitchens, before  serving. They arc theu above reproach to pass with tea. The biscuit  itself is digestible, the chocolate tasty  and nourishing.1 Biscuits covered with  cheese, on the contrary, while highly  agreeable to the taste, are avoided by  those hypercareful abput their diet  Strawberry jam is undoubtedly the  favorite for spreading on English muffins. Blackberry jam or guava la  chosen to spread on the health food  biscuits/especially those made of graham cr whole wheat. Scotch sconea  are spread only through the middle  with fresh butter. These ocones are  very similar to old fashioned soda biscuits and are invariably served hct.  In tiize they are little larger than a.  quarter of a dollar. The number that  some peop'e can make disappear Is  therefore readily countenanced.  Wafer toast finds a place at afternoon-,  tea.   In making it the bread is cut as*  thin as~possibie75ro^~is~th^~toaltM~  until extremely crisp.   It is. eaten dry  or with jam, but it is never buttered.  When cake appears at afternoon tea,,  therashion rages fora rich pound cakes  showing through It many large raisins.  Europeans invariably refer to it as  "American plum cake" and regard It  as a specialty of this country. In entertaining foreigners, therefore,, it 1*.  perhaps the most acceptable cake to  offer.

HEASLIP  Late   Editor   and   Proprietor   of   the  Alameda Dispatch  Mr. J. J. Heaslip, whc has recently  disposed of his newspaper, the Alameda Dispatch, and retired, temporarily at least, from active newspaper  work, is a striking example of the  successful western publisher. He belongs to that rare class of men who  enter the journalistic field late in a  business career, and .without previous  training are enabled, through a combination of latent literary ability and  keen business insight, to conduct a  newspaper with every degree of success, o=     .  The subject of this sketch is a  native of Ontario, his birthplace being near the town of Peterboro. His  early education was secured at the  public school of his native town, and  was later supplemented by__<a course  ~in a business college"^ at-TofontoT  Commencing life as a farmer, Mr.  Heaslip was attracted by the glowing  possibilities that awaited the settler  in the west, and in 1881 he made his  first trip to the prairie province. At  that time Portage la Prairie waa the  railway terminus, and leaving the  train at this point, he travelled  through several districts to obtain an  accurate idea of the quality of the  land and to secure information nbout  the country before returning east.  The following spring (1882) he decided to move to the west, and coming out with a party of fifteen settlers, he reached Brandon on the 16th  of April, 1832. After leaving Brandon  the party travelled by ox team, the  objective point being adjacent to the  'confluence of the Moose Oreek and  Souris River. After an leisurely trip  made for the purpose of looking over  the country, Mr. Heaslip finally  ���������settled at a point four miles west of  the present town of Alameda. It  was the life of the pioneer in those  days, for thore were no other settlers  within a radius of 100 miles and the  nearest postofflce was Brandon. In  ���������the latter part of 1882 the railway  wns extended to Moosomin, which  was the wheat market for the next  ten years. Of the original party who  ���������came west with Mr. Heaslip, only  three or four returned to the east.  Tho rest remained and are now proa-  porous residents of the district. But  one death, and that recently, has  occurred to diminish the number.  Land in this distriot was not in  tho market in the year 1882. and In  ���������order to make homestead entries tho  settlers had to go to Rcgina. Mr.  Heaslip returned to Ontario for tho  winter, camo baok the following  spring, and oontinued to reside in  the country until he had completed  his homestead duties and acquired  his patent, Owing to tho great distance from a  railway, Mr. Heaslip  Cure Your  Dandruff  Why?

A  yormul* with eeeb bawa  then considered the advisability of  removing nearer to some point where  was offered facilities for the shipment  of grain He accordingly took another homestead, which was at that  time permissible, .and remained in  the country for the three years necessary for the completion of the  regulation duties. Although receiving assurances of a railway from  year to year, the road��������� was not completed to Oxbow until the fall of  1891, and did not reach Alameda until  the year  following.  Abandoning work on the farm, Mr.  Heaslip opened a lumber yard in  Oxbow in 1891, and in i892 established a hardware and implement  business in Alameda. The first shipment of freight to be forwarded  west of Oxbow was consigned to Mr.  Heaslip and consisted of two carloads  of lumber. With this material he  erected the first building in Alamnda,  which is now occupied by Messrs.  Cook & Deyell, hardware merchants.  Shortly after becoming established in Alameda Mr. Heaslip sold his  lumber business in Oxbow, and after  a successful career, in both the hardware and implement business, these  were also disposed of, aiid a private  bank opened.^  Itswas in July, 1893, that Mr.' Heaslip entered the ( field of journalism,  and acquired the Alameda Dispatch.  In the same manner in which he had  thrown his talents and energies into  the previous enterprises with which  "\e hed been connected, Mr. Heaslip  at once entered with zest into the  work of producing a newspaper that  would reflect in the truest sense the  growing importance of the town and  district it served. In typographical  finish and mechanical make-up the  Dispatch was brought to the highest  point of excellence. The publisher  was prompt in the introduction of  improved methods and devices. The  newspaper office was thoroughly  equipped with machinery of the most  modern pattern, which included a  type-setting machine and high grade  presses. This resulted in the production of a.paper that was neat and  ttidy in style of print and appearance.  While Mr. Heaslip is? a Conservative  u. politics, the Dispatch has been  oonducted on' strictly independent  lines, although never neutral,  Mr. Heaslip has been a.notary-public and justice of the peace'for fifteen years, and for the past three  years has seived at the head of municipal affairs. He is president of  the Crown Lumber & Coal company,  with yards - at Alameda and Fro-  "bi"sHeTr"to"d"also"c6nducts���������a"- private;  bank, where a general banking business is transacted.  With characteristic enterprise, Mr.  Heaslip installed the telephone system in Alameda, which gives a satisfactory service and now ^ias-, connections with the leading 'business  and private residence^ in town. Ho  also installed the', first acetylene  plant in Alameda.  Mr, Heaslip has always taken a  keen interest in all healthy, manly  sports. He is an enthusiastic patron  of hockey and lactosse, and a large  shareholder in the local skating  rink. Last summer he purchased a  motor car, and motoring forms his  chief diversion during the summer  months. He has become familiarized  with the mechanical parts of the  machine to a detail, and is thoroughly conversant with the principles  underlying propulsion.  Mr. Heaslip is a firm believer in  keeping in close touch with every  detail of the numerous enterprises  under his control, and this no doubt  is largely responsible for the success  that has invariably attended hia business dealings. Every department of  his business is conducted on a system. He is withal courteous and affable in deportment, graceful in manner and has an enviable reputation  for being thoroughly honorable in  all his dealings. Convincing in argument, optimistic in view, Mr.  Heaslip is an entertaining conversationalist, He can discuss with freedom and ease a wide range ot subjects, and is particularly Well Informed on the various matters per-  tnining to municipal work. In tho  midst of his multifarious business  duties he finds time to Bpend threo  or four hours daily in his library,  and is consequently vory widely road,  and keeps in close touch with the  leading questions of the day,  It is but natural to assume that  Mr. Heaslip has a splendid residence.  His homo is n large stone building,  the largest in fact in tho district,  and is beautifully enclosed,  In religion Mr. Heaslip is a Pros-  byterlan, is nn elder in tho church  and one of its warmest supporters.
