P. RITHET,  & Co., Ltd.  B.C.  HI* Canning Is Marvelous, and He la  -    Difficult to Catch.  The cunning of the gray wolf is marvelous, and it is ������aost difficult to catch  napping. He somehow seems to  know that iron is associated with man,  A piece of iron anywhere will keep  him at a distance. If you shoot an  antelope, for instance, and just put  your spur on the carcass you may leave  it as long as you like and no wolf will  touch it. A pocket handkerchief will  ^do as well.  Lobo,  a great gray wolf who was  the king of the pack at Currumpaw, a  ���������j*ast cattle range in New Mexico, was  a thinker as well as a ruler.   His pack  ate nothing but what they, had killed  themselves,  and thus poison  was  no  good.   At last a thousand dollars was  set upon  bis head.    This brought  a  noted wolf hunter from Texas, with  his pack of great wolfhounds;     But  again  there was  failure.    Then two  other hunters came with sillily devfe-  ed poisons to work his undoing.   Then  I  came on  the scene.    First  I tried  poison, and there was no combination  of strychnine, arsenic and prussic acid  which I did not use.   I put the poisons  In cheese incited together with kidney  fat, and during the whole process  I  wore gloves steeped in hot blood.   And  I scattered the bait all over the ranch.  The next   morning  I  went  out  and  fouud   Lobo's   tracks,   with   the   bait  gone.   I was delighted.   I followed the  track   and   fouud   another, bait  gone  and yet another.    Then Iv found the  three baits piled upon another one and  covered with filth.   Lobo hud evidently  carried the   first three in his  mouth  and had taken this means of expressing his utter contempt for- my devices.  But   Lobo's   downfall   came   about  through a big white she wolf who was  always with him.   I managed to catch  her in a trap.   Then I know we should  soon have Lobo.   Night nfter night he  came around the homestead and mourned his mate in long, plaintive howls.   I  knew he would try to find her body.  I set 130 strong steel wolf traps, and  u one of these 1 caught him���������a mar-  :yr to constancy.

Deai   Sir,   Refoning  lo  Mr.   Chan-
ton's      letter   to you  under  date  of
(lie  .'list   nlto,   I beg   to  advise      oi
having  seen   the  steamship  company
lhe   i-usenl   time;   he  says   he   don't
wonder  at   me  figliling  for   Socialist.
al'.L-nin-n   and   police   ooiiinrrsr,ioiicis
and  p.iliceman,   when   1 am  related to
tliciii,    My   friend,   I fought  for      the
long   hefoic   my   brother      was
m-.'K'e  roliceman   and   long   before      I
ever  saw   Aldeiinan   Blair   or      ll-.r
coinmi.'-sioncr.s.   and  yo'.i  cannot deny
it.       Islander   talk's  about   polilical
purity.    That   is r ne thing Socialists
claim;   Hie  Socialist members  in   the
'House,   an.l   the   coinni'ssloiiers   and
! policeman  have all  Leon o'lercd brib-
I es  and   refused   them.    That   goes   to
piove that   thi-.  sort  of  bribery  has
b-.-cii    going on  in   the hands of  tho
old piu ties.
He lei'uscs   lo   debate  in  a hall   as
he claims  he is  no speaker.    That  is
not   tin   point,  lie has rot   lhc grit in
him   lo face  his   f-cllovvmin  and  say:
���'Gcnilemen,  lam  here lo  tramp you
unvlcr my L.ct,  to uphold   the system
which    s   sucking   the   blood       from

fortunate lwothers;  thc system which
.shoots   vou  down   when  you  demand
your  rLhls."    That's  what   Islander
is afraid of,  and     not  through Leino

i So.   Udy2i:ii(b

in   the   open   where   he  can   be  seen,
but     a very   good   one   through   the
piess,  screened   by  a nom  de  plume.
Come  out,   Sir,   if-you  have  convictions,   and   light  for   them   honestly.
Aly challenge is  still open   l-o you to
debate  through   the press under your
own  name.    Islander  wants   to  know
what  good   Socialism   is  'doing.   Socialism, Sir,  is  fighting for  the,class
that  made  this  world and   lhe     ones
tliat are  keeping il  up  (The working
class)   Jl-c   also   wants  to  kjiiow Low'
it is going  lo do any good.    It   will-
advance   morality.    The  present  system   is,   dishonest   and   it   breeds   every form  ol conception, graft, swindling, gambling, .robbery and  thievery,
ballol-ho.x  frauds, and all other sc.rls
of old  parly  tricks���this   is   lhe  system   Islander represents, and   I hough I
everybody   else  weie  fools   for      not
.voting for  them again.   By   the way,
Marx  has   been   leluled,   vet   in .Germany  (whore he  still  holds good)  a
'months ago  when  the Reichstag   was
!ilitoKoh<il,    the   Socialist   held   lilty-
eighl   seats.    They   now  return  with
.S7.    Either   the   Socialists   there  are
a lot of   fools,   or   the refutntion   exists only in  lhe minds of the followers  of Pi'oudiiorn  and  his  descipks.
Lastly,    as     regards    sailing   the
earth dodg--.1, as Ishm-dci calls  il.   Let
me  remind   him cHiat  he  is  still    up
:n   Uu1  air.    lie   has   nol   come -down
lo diseu-ss   the .practical   problems   of

ei   up   there.    Stay   win re   you   are,
Mr.  Lslaud-er,    I'm not coming up  to
you.    The  amorphous commune'which
you desire in preference lo a well or-
deied    slate of   society  is   up   there
and  should   you   happen   lo   miss   tbe
crislomary   Socialist   policeman,   etc.,
come  down,  and   1 have  little doubt
bul" (hat. your  ideals  will receive   a
shock   thai,   will   take  many   generations   to   recover   from.    1 have  said
my  last,   Sir,   rr'nUl   your corn spoil-
dent, Islander gets grit enough  to furnish  his name.
