The Armstrong  people in general, and the Agricultural Association in particular, arc  to be congratulated on- the success  of the exhibition, and.the very many  and sincere words of praise heard on  all sides for the splendid manner in  which the affair was handled.

A lucrative business is  awaiting them.  The city is about finished the public improvements planned for this  year. The last work is beyond all  question the best. The cement crossings in the business part of town,  and the 7-foot sidewalk on the south  side of Cliff street, is work that is  making everybody smile. ���������������������������       v  How's that for a record: The A.R.  Rogers Lumber Mill was not stopped  a minute for repairs during the past  month, and Manager Stevens ' is  working 12-hour shifts each, day but  Saturday.' One of the big improvements to be made to the mill this  winter, is the installation' of a steel  water-jacket burner.

The settlers  feel that the real importance of this  road is not realized either by the peo  pie of Enderby   or   the   government.  "What'  is   proposed    regarding   a  bridge?" asks   a   correspondent.   "A  road connecting the two branches of  the valley,   to   give the residents in  the northeast   branch   access to.the  proposed   Enderby   road,   is a great  need.   At present there is only a very  rough trail   cut   by   settlers to gain -  access   to   their   own   lands,    which  leaves the main road about 28& miles  from Vernon.   This   entails a trip a  great   way   round   to get to market'  for people   going   from,   say the extreme end of the north branch to the  farthest part of the northesat branch .  or vice versa.   Let us hope that the  matter will not be allowed to rest in  its present unsatisfactory state."  F. H.

I  >'_  '  _  .���������������������������.:������������������!<-_._ SHIELD OF THE SAHIB"  PROTECTS PROM   THE ASSASSINS OF INDIA.  Why His Majesly Has a Guard of  Indian Ofliccrs at Public  Functions.  The Marquise de Fontcnoy, an  exceptional." well-informed writer  on matters pertaining to the per-  . Ronalitics of tlie great and near  groat, contributes the following  timely article to Tho New York  Tribune. It is of more than ordinary interest to Canadians, in view  oi the present exalted position in  India of one so well known in Canada���������������������������Lord Minto���������������������������who not long  ago was declared to have been in  peril from an assassin's bomb, and  whose danger, under the circumstances newly created, is probably  much more pronounced now. Writes  thc marquise:  Col. Sir William Wyllic's assassination by a young native of India at an entertainment given at  the Imperial Institute, in London,  serves to call attention to the remarkable immunity enjoyed by Anglo-Indian government officials  during the two hundred years which  have elapsed since Great Britain  obtained possession of her great  oriental empire until about a couple  of years ago. Leaving aside the  wholesale massacres of Europeans  during the great Sepoy mutiny of  1657, there have been, until tho advent to office in England of thc  present Liberal administration and  the adoption by Lord Morley of his  - radically new policy with regard to  India, comparatively few cases of  piurder of high officials by natives  in India.  In fact, with the exception of the  late Lord Mayo, who was slain by a  native convict while visiting a penal  settlement on the Andaman Islands  in his capacity as viceroy, in 1S72,  the shooting of. another viceroy,  namely, Lord Lytfcon, by a fanatic  Indian, in 1S79, and the attempt  to poison by means of powdered  glass Col. Phayro, British resident  and plenipotentiary at the native  Court of Baroda, for..which the  ruler, or Gackwar of that state was  deposed, 1 cannot recall any crime  prior to 190G that bears analogy  with the one perpetrated by the  murderer of kind-hearted and  courtly Sir William Wyllie, who was  just one of those men against whom  it would seem impossible for anybody to havo harbored the slightest enmity.  ORIENTAL HOLDS LIFE CHEAP  Life is held so cheap hy orientals  in  general, and  by the people of  India in particular, that tho relative security from    harm    enjoyed"  hy  tho    British    dignitaries,   both  high and low, in the great eastern  dependency of  tho "British  Crown  cannot    be   ascribed    to    scruples  about killing a  fellow-creature  or  tc thc fear of thc ordinary capital  punishment which the crime would  have necessarily entailed.   Nor can  it be attributed to any affection and  liking  of  tho  natives  for,   English  =ma&teiy_==__i CA'-^a-Po-^no^d-ifl'ereni.  from other Asiatic or African races,  which   would  infinitely prefer oppression,   tyranny,    extortion  and  insecurity of lifo and property un-  ocr a native  regime to a wcll-or-  dcrcd, benevolent and efficient government on (he part of any foreign  power.    Wc    havo a  striking    instance    thereof   in    Egypt,   whero  every nalive hates thc Knglish, al-  India native orderlies for their-protection. Mere English detectives  will be found inadequate. It needs  the brains and the wiles of an Oriental to comprehend and match  with any degree of success the wiles  oi the .Oriental criminal.  It is not, as so many people seem  to believe, for exclusively ornamental purposes that King Edwa������������������d is  attended at all -public functions  throughout the season by half a  dozen Indian orderlies, not more  non-commissioned officers, but Indians of birth and breeding, holding commissions in native regiments. With the presence in Eng-  land.of perhaps a couple of thousand young Indians, a number of  whom are of the same type and imbued wij'J. the same spirit as the assassin of Colonel Wyllie, it requires  men of the type of the Indian aides-  de-camp of the King to shield him  from all danger on the part of their  countrymen.  HANGING NO DETERRENT.  Ono thing more. Until about ten  years ago thc white man out in.India was likely to take "the law into  his own hands and to inflict summary punishment in the case of any  native outrage at the expense of  white men and women. Justice was  sharp and swift, even although it  was not always in accordance with  the strict letter of the law, any  more than penalties such as the  burying of the corpse of a man  hanged for murder in the ripped  open carcass of a hog, which, according to Indian ideas, defiled him  to such an extent as to destroy all  prospects of any hereafter, at the  same time bringing lasting disgrace  upon his family. But this is no  longer possible. Summary justice  and punishment of the kind just  mentioned have been done away  with by tho present regime. One  finds natives placed in judicial and  administrative authority over Englishmen; which is subversive of all  native ideas of the Englishman's  supremacy; and thc consequence;  is that murders and outrages on the  part of natives at the expense of  the English in India and in Great  Britain are likely to become more  and more frequent.  The murderer of Sir William Wyllie will undoubtedly be hanged unless he manages to commit suicide  in prison before going to the scaffold.   But his execution is not lika  !y to act as a deterrent fo his co'in  liymen,' and,   with   their indifference to death, will bt regarded by  them  as  no  disgrace   unless  some  method  is  adopted  of  compromi.  ing in their eyes his hereafter  by  defiling his remains in the manner  FIGHTING A LION.  Hon. Winston   Churchill   Tells of  His Experience in Africa.  Nothing causes the East African colonist more genuine concern  than that his guest should not have  been provided with a Hon. The lion.  Winston Spencer Churchill says  tiiat a failure to produce a lion  preys on thc colonist's mind until  it becom".s a regular obsession. He  feels that some deep rcproacn is laid  upon his own hospitality and the  reputation of his adopted country.  In "My African journey," Mr.  Churchill tolls something of the  pursuit of this noble game.  This is the way in which they  hunt lions: First Iind the lion, lured  to a kill, dri/cn from a reed-bod  or kicked up incontinently by tiie  way. Once viewed, hc must ncvef  be lost, sight of for a moment.  Mounted on ponies of more or less  approved fidelity, three or four daring .Britons or Somalia gallop aLcr  him,  acroc rock  through   high  holes, tussocks,  undergrowth  thorn  try-.) ee  tur.'ing    him  scrub,  shepherding him, heading him this way  and that until he is brought to bay.  For his part the lion is no seeker  cf quar. els; he is often described  in iiccents of contempt. His object  throughout is to save his skin, if,  being unarmed, you meet six or seven lions unexpectedly, all you need  to do, according to my information,  is to speak to them sternly, and  they will slink away, while you  throw a few stones at them to hurry them up. All the highest authorities recommend ohis.  But when pursued from place to  place, chased hithtr and thither by  wheedling horsemen, the lion becomes embittered. First he begins  f-u growl and roar at his enemies,  ;n order to terrify them and make  the.ii leave him in peace. Then ho  darts little short charges at them.  Finally, when ������������������.:very attempt al  peaceful pei .ua: ion has failed, ho  pulls  up  abruptly  and offers  bal-  AUTOBIO GRAPH!*   OF A TREE.  Was Probably Eight Hundred and  Fifty-six Years Old.  A venerable yellow pine had been  cut down, says Mr. Enos A. iUin'  in "Wild Lite on the itockies."

For a day  or two beforo rain comes their  stems swell lo an appreciable extent and stiffen so that the leaves  are borne more uprightly than usual. This stem swelling when rain  is expected is a feature of many  flowering grasses.

When tho story of  Shackleton's dash for  Polo comes to be told in full, it will  probably be found that the worst  time the explorers experienced was  when they were ohliged to laco  themselves up in their sleeping-  bags during thc three days' blizzard  of January 7th,  Sth,  and  9th.  They were then high up on the  -!vlandHce^a_^an^dcvatioir"e_t_Ctl^  ing :len thousand feet above sea  level, Iho temperature was 72 degrees below freezing, and the wind  blew at seventy miles an hour.  What the combination of these  three conditions means, is only fully understandable by those who  have experienced them, or something like them. Cold alone men  can slaud... Indeed, there are plenty of instances of lower temperatures having been bomo than that  encountered upon this particular  occasion. Add to intense cold other  disadvantages���������������������������such as thc rarefaction of tho air incidental to high  altitudes, and a most distressing  condition is created; but it is still  bearable. But when, in addition,  Lhe wind blows with greater than  hurricane force, then all progress  is at an cud for the time being.  To attempt to face such a wi.-.d  under such circumstances mc ;ns  certain and speedy death. Small  wonder that the explorers were  frost-bitten even in their fur sleeping-bags. The extraordinary thing  io lhat they should ������������������vcr have emerged  from them alivo.  For nothing like it has ever before been survived by mortal man.  Perhaps tho nearest approach to  it was when Captain Scott was blizzard-bound on tho inland ice-cap  of Antarctica during tho last British  South Polar expedition. But then  .ho temperature did not fall be'  low fifty degrees of frost, and thc  wind blew at forty miles an hour  en an average.  Even under these circumstances  they gave themselves up for lost.  What, then, must havo been the  feelings of Shacklcton and his companions, with tho temperature 22  degrees lower and the wind thirty  miles an hour faster?  than the others; in places, also,  two or three of them were together.  This was the result of unfavorable  weather���������������������������of drought or cold. Burns,  bites, bruises, torn bark and broken  arms all showed, and from them I  was able to make out thc old tree's  history.  For nearly thrco centuries little  had happened to it but the ordinary  accidents from thc crowding .and  pushing, and even the falling of  other trees. In the summer of i.  as I made it out, a strike of lightning tore a limb out of its round  top and shattered a shoulder. During 1848 it lost two of its largest  arms. Perhaps the accumulations  of heavy snow did this.  In thc lower section of Old Pine's  trunk I was sawing-off a portion,  when the tool, with a buzz-z-z! suddenly jumped, and cutting away  the wood carefully, I discovered a.  flint arrowhead, and then another.  The outer ring whieh these arrows  had pierced was the six hundreo.  and thirtieth, so that the year must  have been 1_S6.  The year that Columbus discovered America Old Pine was a handsome giant, with a round head held  more than a hundred feet above the  earth. Thc year 1540 was a memorable one, for during that year  a camping-party built a fire against  the instep of thc tree, and some one  hacked it with ah axe.  In 17G2 tho season was not regular. After the ring was well  started, something, perhaps a cold  wave, for a time checked its growth,  and so thc wood for that year resembled two years' growth; but tho  difference between this double or  false ring and a regular one was  easily detected.  I discovered what seemed to be  indications of earthquake shocks  from time fo time. In tho year 1811,  o'- early in 18J2 thc tree must have  experienced a violent one, for the  wood was checked and shattered,  and at one point, some distance  from thc ground, was a bad break.  That quarter of the tree which faced  the cliff had suffered a rock bombardment. One of thc stones of  about five pounds' weight, had re:  maihed embedded in the side of the  tree.  In_the_3^ear 1859 _spme���������������������������one_m_a_do  3��������������������������� axe-mark on the old pine that  may have been intended for a trail-  blaze, and in the same year another  fire had badly burned 'and scarred  its ankle. 1 wonder if some prospectors came this way in 1859 and  made camp fire by the tree.  While I was working over thc old  pine a Douglas squirrel which lived  near by used to stop every day in  its busy harvesting of pine-cones to  look on and scold mc. As I watched  him placing his cones in a hole in  the ground under the pine-needles,  I wondered if ono of his buried  cones would remain there uneaten,  ro germinate and expand ever green  inlo the air, and become a noble  giant to live as long and as useful  a life as Old Pine. I. found myself  trying lo picture thc scenes in  which this tree would stand when  the birds came singing back from  thc southland in thc spring-timo of  the year 3000.   ���������������������������I___   WHERE MONEY WAS HID  MANY  SECRET  HOARDING  PLACES FOR VALUABLES.  Writers and Painleds of 17th Ccn-  , lury Told of Old Hiding  Places.  It was tho common opinion ot  writers on economics in tho seventeenth century that much, ou'rrenciy  was hidden in ceilir.gs,-behind wainscots, and in secret'drawers. Hogarth, iu his prin. of "The Inheritance," forming ono of the set of  "Tho Rake's Progress," has do-  pictcd a shower of coins falling from  the ceiling of the room where a  workman has accidentally disturbed  tho moulding. Old cabvnets and  secretaries of any size h_'vo usually one or two secret drawers or cupboards, often;most ingeniously contrived. It is surprising how well  these secret corners elude detection, even when their existence may  be expected or inferred. Some-  years ago the ��������������������������� wife of a Kentish  laborer was breaking up an old  chest of drawers, when she discovered a secret compartment nearly  filled with gold coins of the reigns  of William III. and George II. Th*  chest had  been purchased  FOR A FEW SHILLINGS  about twenty years previously, and  the fact that this little store ol  coins had not been discovered earlier was all the more Strang, because in all probability tb . draw-,  ers had becu several times re-,  paired.  A curious list of hiding places for.  money is afforded by two old books:  of memoranda and receipts relating  t- the Ful ham Pottery Works in  1693 and 1698. There are two hundred and forty guineas in a wooden  box in a hole under the fireplace  in the garret. There aro four hundred and sixty more in two covered  receptacles under the fireplace in .  the old laboratory. Behind the  door of the little parlor there is a  can containing somo milled money.  Two boxes full of money were  placed _in two holes of tho.great _  furnace,, from which they were to  be drawn by a long, crooked iron  standing behind the kitchen door.  In all, ten or-a dozen such hiding  places arc named, and the money  was variously contained in boxes,  bags, cans, pots and purses.  ENCOURAGED CRIME.  There can be little doubt that the  practice of hoarding money and va.'������������������  luables   in   private   houses   gave  great encouragement to crime.- A  glance through the pages of early,  volumes of "The Annual Register,"i  largely devoted to the chronicles of,  crime, reveals a number of apparently   hastily   planned   robberies.-  which resulted in rich hauls out of|  all proportion to the occasion. Some'  thieves get in at the garret window   of - a   house   in   Devonshire  Square,' and carry    off    from the'.  owner's bedchamber an iron chest(  containing cash,  notes,  and other  valuables to the amount of ten thou-  sand=.po und s .__=.T.W-0__men_eji te.r__t,h_ ___=  A DREARX LAND.

A Buddhist priest has been arrested at Ivadoung, in the Ha nth a-  waddy   district   of   1 .irmah, on a  charge of    the murder, committed  under peculiar  circumstances,  of  a Burmese lad, aged thirteen, who  was  a novice  for  the priesthood.  The    police     and    Bur mans    who  brought the  lad    lo the Rangoon  hospital,  told  the authorities thai  the dead boy had caught a bird in  the schoolroom and had killed it.  His  tutor,  after  abusing hini  for  taking the  lifo of  a bird,   struck  him, and hc fell down.   The priesfej  is said to have called the attention  oi other novices to the boy's con-'  dition, telling them that, as he had  taken life, so he must die, and before tho   astonished    pupils could  give  thc  alarm,  ho had  seized a,^  billet of wood an<_ wcaten thc u .-(  fortunate  lad's    brains    in,    The  boys  fled  in  horror,  and  notified]  the villagers,  who surrounded thd}  monastery and tried to arrest the.  priest.

Rice is nice either as a separate  dish or in combination with fresh  fruit or jelly in'pudding and croquettes. Nature intends us to eat  fresh fruits and vegetables in summer, so do not bother about made  desserts.  For variety there, are baked  peaches, baked just as you bake  apples, taking out thc peach stono  and filling the cavity with sugar,  chopped nuts, and raisins. , Set the  peaches in a pan with a,little water  and bake. Serve each in an indi-  ^fidual^lFsT"with^vhipplfd^ci-eamT  Bananas lhat are not quite ripe maybe baked in their skins, first loosening the skins, for twenty to thirty  minutes, then arranged on a hot  dish with melted currant jelly poured over them.  Quinces may be baked by cutting  them in halves and putting them in  a pan with little water. When cooked cover-with - butter'-and sugar.  The plain, every-day baked apple  may be varied by filling the place  where tho core was with.sugar, cinnamon, almonds, and lemon peel  chopped fine. When baked let cool,  th.cn servo with whipped cream,  flavored to taste. A popular hot  v/cathor dessert is to take a halfof  a cantaloupe and fill it with ice  cream. Pulled pineapple is always  acceptable for a first course or for  dessert.  Tare the pineapple, take out thc  eyes with a sharp knife, then.pull  the pulp apart, using two forks.  Only ripe, sweet pineapples should  leused. The pineapple shell, when  left intact, makes a pretty receptacle for fruit salad.  MAKING WORK EASIER.  In passing, one vital secret of  making one's work easier in hot  .weather is to buy food in small  quantities. Let the grocer and  butcher keep foods fresh in their  big ice boxes. Even if you have  to make more trips to them you  ,will save dollars by not having to  throw out spoiled meats, vegetables  and fruits.  Vegetable salad can be made from  ft small quantity of vegetables. A  _.mbin_tion salad for six persons  oan bo made from two tiny heads  .f lettuce, two or three tomatoes,  ���������������������������������������������voj. a. ruinxbjf. _, ono   . rccn pc. per,  and one small bunch of radishes.  When the ingredients aro sliced  thinly or chopped they go much farther than one would imagine. The  odds and ends of fruit left in berry  boxes and baskets will combine into a delicious fruit ralad.  Shun big roasts and boiling pieces unless you have a good neighbor who will help you buy on  shares. Small steaks, chops, cutlets, chicken croquettes, veal and  beef loaf, sweetbreads, heart, kidney, tenderloins���������������������������thcso offer a  great variety in lhe way of preparation.and aro just as wholesome and  much cheaper than big roasts.  Tho less meat we eat in hot weather the better Iv us. Many housewives only serve meat once a week  <luring July and August. Eggs  are tho most popular substitute.  Foreigners have learned tho art  of serving vegetables cold with oil,  vinegar, and chopped parsley and  a hint of onion. Asparagus, tomato, cauliflower, string beans, beets,  and spinach are the most popular  for cold service.    -  HUCKLEBERRY PUDDING.  The delicious huckleberry pudding of grandmother's days has  come down to us and is still popular. Tho easiest way to make huckleberry pudding is to make a good  paste of butter well mixed with  flour, roll it out, fill it with berries, tie it up in a pudding bag or  place in pudding mold,  and boil.  A more modern recipe calls for  two cupfuls-of flour, one-half cupful of granulated sugar, two cupfuls of berries, one heaping teaspoonful of baking powder, one-half  salt-spoonful of salt, one teaspoonful of butter. ��������������������������� Mix the dry ingredients, then rub in the butter, add  enough milk to make a batter which  will drop from the spoon. Add the  berries, well floured, and turn the  mixture into a greased pudding  mold.   Steam or boil one-half hour.  Few would be willing to" forego  the fresh fruit pies of which we are  so fond. One housewife makes her  pie shells by turning the pie tins  bottom side up and covering them  with the sheet of dough. This she  thinks easier and makes a better  shell than to line tho tin. She  stews the fruit of adds it fresh just  before serving.  Another makes individual pie  shells " in her muffin tins, uses only-  as many as she needs for the meal,  and sets the others away. Both of  these declare that soggy, juice soaked pies are uknown on their tables.  One always serves individual lemon meringue pies at her company  luncheons and dinners. No .one  fully outgrows his liking for "patty  pan" pies and tarts.  WORTH KNOWING.  Oxalic acid diluted will remove  ink stains. ;  Clean linoleum with warm water  and polish it with milk.

PALE, LANGUID  GIRLS  Weak Blood During Development May Easily Cause  a Life of Suffering:.  A Tonic Suoh as Dr Williams' Pink  Pills is Needed to Build Up  the Bloud and Give Hew  Stiength.  At no time in her life does a girl  stand in greater need of pure red  blood and the strength which it  alone can give her, than when she  is developing into womanhood, it  is then that any inherited tendency to anaemia or consumption  needs only the slightest encouragement to. rapidly develop.. .This  danger is especially threatening to  girls who are confined, long hours  indoors, in stores, offices and factories���������������������������girls depressed by worry  and cares. All these conditions  quickly impoverish the blood and  are among the most common causes of sickness among growing girls  and young women. If at any time  a girl finds that her strength is  failing and she is' becoming pale  and nervous, has no ambition and  is languid, it is a"certain sign that  her blood is failing to meet the demands upon it, because it is impure and thin.  It is at a time like this thai Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills are^invaluable to young women and "growing  girls;? They build up the' blood,  make it rich, red and pure, tone  the nerves and give new health  and strength to every part of the  body. They have cured so many  cases of .this kind that they may  truly be."called a- specific for the  common diseases of girlhood. Miss  Minnie Smith, Creighton street,  Halifax, says:���������������������������"I have proved  that Dr.-Williams' Pink Pills are  all that is claimed for them in cases  similar to nr'ne. About three years  ago I-suddenly began to run'down.  I grew so weak that I could hardly  attend to my school studies. I suffered from headaches, my heart  would palpitate violently at the  least exertion, and my appetite  was very fickle. I tried doctors'  medicine and emulsions, but the  treatment did not help mo.

Great Times When lhe Aerial Battleships Gets Busy in thc Game  of War.  "Aerial navies will bo an accomplished fact at an early date, not  only because they are highly efficient, but because they are cheap.  The present cost of Germany's army  is over $200,000,000 a year. It has  600$00 men in active service, and  1,200,000 reserves. A fleet of 500  airships could be maintained for  $15,000,000 a year, and 100 new  ships added annually for $25,000,-  000. The incentive to replace large  bodies of troops by the new instrument of war will be extremely  powerful on the ground of mere  economy, in the present period of  enormous war taxes." Such is the  assertion of an enthusiastic believer  in the aerial battleship. He goes  on to say : ,   -  "A new machine of war has arrived. It will be a ship, as large and  eventually much" larger, than our  present ocean" battleships. It will  fight from the height" of a mile above  the earth, and will maneuver during battle at a rate of 60 to 65 miles  an hour; The general' discussion  of experts for a' number of years  has established a so-called zone of  safety, in which the last German  airship, the Zeppelin.II, has been  built to travel in time' of action.  This is about 1,650 yards (nearly a  mile) above the surface of the earth.  The reason for adopting this level  was that here the airship is out of  range of the military rifle, . which  constitutes ~.

It  will be armed with rapid-fire guns,  carrying shells, but its chief reliance in fighting infantry or cavalry  will be upon the machine rifle.-  VuUi this weapon it can turn a  stream of 400 bullets a minute on  any troops within two miles; .exactly  as a man turns the stream of a gar-  denhose against a -tree. Its. gun:  ners .can se������������������ any object on .the*  ground with a perfect clearness, impossible of realization by anyone  who has not flown in a .balloon.  They "can thus mark thc striking of  bullets perfectly. ��������������������������� And the range-  of their guns'i3 nearly'doubled on  account of their position. The fire  of an airship-.will'annihilate infantry, and cavalry beneath it, as surely as the hand of God. It will not  be directed long at any coherent1  body which could be called troops.  Human nature forbids the possibility of men remaining to be shot down  like rats in a pit.  "A Zeppelin airship is not a balloon, but a true ship���������������������������exactly corresponding to an iron "ocean ship:  The Zeppelin I and Zeppelin II,  two huge power-driven arrows, 446  feet long, are capable of being  driven at a speed of 35 miles an  hour through the air; and handled  as quickly and easily not merely as  an ocean-going ship, but as an auto-  mobile.^^Nothing ..could ..be=moi:n_  wonderful than the control of these  great craft. Turning figures of  eight is  A COMMON TRICK.  "An aerial ship 150 .feet long and  51 feet wide could carry a doien  men a mile high in the air over a  radius of 500 miles, and back; that  is, it could reach every principal  capital-of Europe-from the-borders  of German territory and return.  It could, in addition, devote at  least five tons of cargo weight to  arms and ammunition. This could  include ten machine rifles, each  equipped with ammunition enough  for a full hour's work, and two  machine guns of the type built for  tho Zeppelin I, with 200 shells for  each weapon. Two and a half tons  of dynamite torpedoes could be  substituted for half of the machine  guns and their ammunition, if it  were desired to attack fortifications  or cities. Forty craft of this kind  could be built and armed at the  cost of one Dreadnought battleship.  And such a fleet, without opposition from other airships, could conquer Western Europe. The moment it is launched, thc standing  armies of Europe become an anachronism.  "The. weapons of a ship of this  kind against battleships would be  large aerial torp-edoes, filled with  high explosives. It has been popularly assumed that missiles of this  kind would be simply, dropped from  tho airship. This would be ridiculous. No possible aim can bo  secured by dropping, any object  down through a mile of air, filled  with conflicting cross-currents.  THE AERIAL TORPEDO  will be fired from a long, light tube,  I  i  by compressed air or some similar  means, with sufficient force to givt  it some initial speed, and a rotation  which will keep it from turning  over. It will consist of 150 or 206  pounds of high explosive, lik������������������  maximite, which cannot be set off  by concussion, but is exploded by a  fuse wnich concussion will ignite;'  and will carry a steel cap at it������������������  end. The initial velocity, and the  force of gravity acquired in the fall  of a mile through the air will give  this a great speed by the time it  reaches the deck of a ship. It will  pass through the upper decks to  the armored deck below, where tho  slowly burning fuse will at last explode it, and its force, directed  against the sharp-pointed steel cap.  will drive this through the armorea  deck and tear away the inside of -  the ship. There is no reason why.  this weapon should not become at ,  dangerous as the submarine tor:  pedo, whose explosion against the'  side of a warship is conceded ,to  mean " its " destruction or disable--  ment.. -./  "In' destroying   troops   on  .the  ground the airship will take ho seri-J.  ous risk.

Walter Howard, writing from the  Okanagan Valley in the Standard of  Empire, says: "Altogether, this season augurs well .or the Okanagan  ranchers, and will, we hope, start on  the road to prosperity many of those  newcomers daily arriving who have  chosen this valley as their future  home. They will have to work, but  then in this world nothing comes  without toil of some sort; and, after  all, what could be better than work  in the open air? And I am not at  all sure that the love for work of  this kind has to be born in a man.  It grows upon one with the rolling  seasons; and- grows stronger than the  habit for any other work. One of  the most enthusiastic of my neighbors���������������������������forty miles away���������������������������was a London merchant three years ago. Today you would warrant he had been  a fruit farmer from boyhood."  CREDIT WHERE DUE.  The Vernon News gives a very just  rebuke to     the   Provincial and local  police for their miserable handling of  the Vernon   fire   case,   permitting as  they did the   escape   of Alex.  Smith,  whose   connection   with the affair is  extremely   questionable,   and for the  arrest of whom a warrant is issued  and     a   reward   offered:    "The   fact  that   not   a   sign   has   been seen of  Alex. Smith,, whose   connection with  the Okanagan Hotel fire is established by the letter   which he left before  disappearing,    does   not reflect much  credit upon the police.   Of course we  do not expect   these   officials to perform   impossibilities,   but the public  _ have at least reason to ask that they  exerr^tbemselves    to   the utmost in  cases of this kind."  The News editor then steps aside to  bring into question the work of tho  Provincial police in other cases.  "The fact is," he says,"that the record of police work in this province  for the past few years has been anything but creditable. Escapes and  - failures-of-justice-have-been^the :rule  rather than the exception. The murderer of Zimmerman at Penticton  has never been brought to justice.  Neither have .the Midway murderers.  The man who killed a companion  over a game of cards at Keremeos  made good his escape, and is still at  large. A prominent farmer was  sand-bagged and robbed on the commonage road, near the city, a year  or two ago, and the perpetrator of  the crime still remains unknown."  Then thc editor comes back to the  Smith    case.   "Alex   Smith told the  man from   whom   he borrowed a revolver that   he   would   lie low for a  few days, and then   get a horse and  make his    way    across   the line.   It  looks as if he had   succeeded in carrying this plan into effect.   There is  little   chance   of the mystery of the  fire   being    cleared    up   unless he is  caught, and    most   people have now  given   up   any   hope that his arrest  will    be    consummated.   This    whole  case    was    badly   bungled   from the  start.   The   lawyer   representing thc  Crown handled it in about as foolish  a manner as can   well    be conceived,  He took exactly   the course calcula  ted to put Smith   on his guard, and  induce him to   seek   safety in flight.  He had him up, a day before the inquest started, and subjected him Nto a  private examination, in which it was  plainly shown that he was under suspicion.   Tlie natural  consequence was  that Smith decided to fly.   No watch  was kept over   his   movements, tho'  the chief of the city police had asked  for a   warrant   for    his    arrest.   He  borrowed a gun    and   walked out of  town   without   the    slightest    effort  being made.to prevent his departure.  This is about as raw a _������������������ase of inefficiency-.as   ever   came   to our notice,  and demands the   fullest possible investigation from the authorities."  While there is much unpleasant  truth iia what the News says, there  are now and then instances of splendid work done by the Provincial  police.-.- The capture and holding for  trial of Belmont and Dake, by Provincial Constable Gardom, is one of  them. And had the same prompt action been taken in the Smith esse,  the "mystery" surrounding the Okanagan hotel fire would now be clear,  and the. culprit or culprits guilty of  this awful crime, would now be in  the hands of justice. As it is, with  Smith free, and no apparent effort  being made to bring him or those  interested with him, to justice, it is  a disgrace, not only to the police of  Vernon, but to the good name of the  metropolis of the Okanagan, and to  th. Valley as a whole. Indeed, if no  more serious attempt is made to unravel this mystery and intercept the  fire fiend than has been made, it will  be a blot on the good name of the  Province and one that can bear nothing but evil. The police of the province, and the Department of Justice  should not rest until this awful crime  is cleared up. The News is right in  coming out strongly in the matter.  It is a crime we cannot afford to let  pass. We do not agree with the News  entirely that the police were alone to  blame for Smith's escape, for we believe the real fault lies with" those in  a position higher up, but wherever it  is, the thing has been done, and the  ends of justice defeated, and it now  rests with the people of Vernon and  the Province to see that every possible effort is made to bring the  guilty to answer.  The police are not alone .to blame.  Smith had too many friends. And,  too, he did not tell the wise attorneys handling the case that he fired  the building, and they did not feel  justified in apprehending him.  In the matter of the prominent  farmer who 'was sand-bagged near  Vernon, the police were not at fault  because of the guilty one being allowed to escape. It is.a well-known  fact that the culprit was captured by  Provincial Constable Gardom, after a  long chase in the hills north of the  Shuswap lake,, and, when taken before the man sand-bagged he was not  in a condition to identify him, and  he was allowed to go scotfree.  ing two feet long and whittle one  end to a handle.

The music is said to be  more effective than singing ' 'Where  is my Wandering Boy Tonight."  This is what one writer says.   Another takes a different view of it. He  says:   "Parents   oftentimes     wonder  who or what has   ruined their boys.  They have been in school every day,  but the teacher either does not teach  them any lessons of morality or else  his teaching is a   failure.   Thc truth  is the boys   are   on   the street from  the time school   closes   until late at  night.   The street corners is the best  place in the world for teaching vice,  profligacy and crime.   Nearly all the  bad language and idle, vicious habits  of boys are taught on the streets at  late hours   of   the   night.   Teachers  may be able to accomplish a little in  counteracting this evil influence, but  much of their labor   is. in vain until  parents, co-operate with them in keep  ing their boys off   the street."

October 7, 1909  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKERS WEEKLY  r  A calculation of the material benefit which Canada derives from the  immigration    of    settlers    from the  .. United States is attempted.by a.Winnipeg correspondent   of   the London  Daily   Mail.   There-, has   ibeen .'.-with  certain Old   Country^ papers a .tendency'to   deplore the   "American invasion"   and   "Americanization"   of  the Canadian West.   In point of fact  the attraction of the Western farmer  of the   United    States has-become, a  matter of fixed policy with the; Can-',-  adian Government.     The reasons'are.  fairly   obvious.   These   people   have-  sold their holdings south of the line  and   come   to Canada with substa .V,  tial effects.   They   have   been' accustomed to breaking land in the States  and need be   told   little or nothing  when    they    reach    their    Canadian  homesteads.. Many of them are Canadians by birth anyway. -  '-     ���������������������������������������������;/.,!  The Mail   correspondent says that  a conservative estimate of the value  of the stock and'cash, which theim.  migrants from the United States will  bring with them this year places the  amount at over $70,000,000, but the  Commissioner    of    Immigration    believes it   may   even   run as high as  as $100,000,000.     The    actual wealth  which    the    American    settlers   are  bringing into Canada this year alone  the correspondent says, would build,  ten   Dreadnaughts   or   pay   the-na-?,  tional expenses for over six months.'  He vouches for a Winnipeg incident'  An old Idaho farmer walked into the  immigration offices at Winnipeg, and  after   declaring . his   purpose, to buy.  land, remarked that he was a stranger,   knowing nothing   of   Canadian  banks or Canadian people.   "I reckon  though," he added,   "that's, British  Government, is safe;    so I wish' you  - would take'charge of my wallet until  I get my claim located." Thereupon  he passed it over to the commissioner, who found a roll of $25,000 in  greenbacks within the old ���������������������������. worn  pocketbook. It was deposited to. the  old man's credit in the government  account which is kept   open for such  '' cases. .- :���������������������������   .  . ^  These Americans who have-their-  money with them when they .come",  begin farming on an extensive scale  and with the most modern equipment  For instance, the" writer in the Daily  Mail says that one wholesale -implement firm in Winnipeg has received  orders for 600 steam plows to be delivered during the present season,  nearly-all of which are for American  ��������������������������� settlers. These'- plows will be used  exclusively in breaking virgin prairie  and as the capacity of each is 1,500  acres'for the season, it means that  900,000-acres will be prepared for  cultivation this ��������������������������� year though the  plows purchased from one firm alone.  In turn, this signifies that there will  be 15,000,000 bushels   more wheat to  ��������������������������� market next year.  ���������������������������  Among the heads of these' families,  there is a   large   proportion of men  ,. who have already become or are pre-,  paring to become British subjects.^  They are not Americanizing Canada.  Canada is Canadianizing them. They  are already qualified for the: practice of   good   citizenship.   They take  : instinctive   interest   in   matters   of  ��������������������������� government, local.and national, and,  J of course,   from   the   beginning, are  perpared to maintain   a high educational   standard.   They   are already  ���������������������������beginning'to^find^their^way^into^Can-  adian public life. -.  -      - i ���������������������������  This American invasion is one of  the most notable things in the present phase of Canadian development.'  It gives evidence of the possibilities  of great future benefit not only to  the immigrants themselves, but.to  the whole of Canada.

"Yes, dear���������������������������in his study."  "I 'phoned him lo-day, asking for  an appointment, as we arranged,  rle suggested seven, which gives  me five minutes yet. Heigh-ho! I  wish it were over. I feel as nervous as a kit-ton."  "Why, Arthur." said Lucy  Staines, smiling gaily, "there's  really nothing to be nervous about,  foi of course papa will consent. Ho  has said often that niy happiness is  more to him than anything else in  the world���������������������������dear papal And when  you tell him how we love each  other he'll be ever so pleased. I  assure vou, dear, thero's nothing to  he afraid of."  "Vou make mo think it isn't such  &  forlorn   hope  after  all,  darling.  - There goes the hour.   Just one kiss  foi  luck, my sweet one."  With the warm pressure of his  sweetheart's lips ou his the last of  Arthur Melrose's doubts regarding  tho issue of the imminent and fateful interview were swept away, and  leaving Lucy in the drawing-room  to await events he crossed the hall  and' tapped upon the study door.  "Come in."  Arthur entered, and the next moment was shaking hands with Mr.  Staines, a little, grey-haired, shortsighted man in a shabby coat, whom  few. at- a first glance, would have  credited with being, as indeed he  was, one of the most astute and  successful financiers in England.  '"Glad to sec you arc prompt to  time, Mr. Melrose," he ..aid; then  added, in an apologetic tone, "Take  a- seat and let us get to business. 1  regret. 1 can't .pare more than fifteen minutes to-night. Something  important, you said?"  "To ine���������������������������yes," said Arthur, seating himself, and conscious all at  once that his brow had grown clammy and that hc was trembling. With  a- powerful effort of will he conquered his terrors and made tho  (.lunge in  simple,  manly terms.  The financier was clearly surprised, but after the first startled peer  through his spectacles at Arthur ho  listened with grave attention.  When tlie suitor reached the end  of his tale there was silence, broken  only by Mv. Staines's lingers beating a swift rataplon on his desk.  But thc impassive face betrayed nothing to Arthur's eager, questioning gaze. Afc lengtn Mr. Staines  cleared his throat sharply.  "Vou love each other, eh? Well,  it's a pity, for a man may fall in  love a few times (most men do) and  to escort you to the door. No; I  can't allow you to see her now  do-all the explaining that's necessary. And I must insist that you  hold no further communication wither whatever."  "But I must "  "Not a word, 1 beg of you, Mr.  Melrose. It would only make it  more painful' for all of us."  And, feeling supremely foolish  and angry, Arthur found himself  luuried past tho door of the drawing-room, which was. perhaps fortunately, closed, and .out I/O the  front doorstep, where the financier  bade him a cold, but courteous  good-night,  II.  Xaturaly Arthur fell sore at tho  summary treatment he had received at Mr. Staines's hands. In his  heart he knew that his love for  Lucy Staines was pure and holy as  love could be, and that, given tho  choice between a nation's wealth  and her sweet self penniless, hc  would open his arms to her, thanking Heaven for a blessing beyond  prico. Meanwhile no choice was offered him. Thc Staiima mansion  was bolted and barred upon liim  and his vain pretensions; but the  love-hunger grew fiercer as the miserable days passed, and ho resolv-'  cd to see Lucy again at any cost.  But how? Could he in honor write  to her in face of her father's prohibition ? Ho was mentally discussing the point in his office when  lie was rung up.  "Halloa!"  he called.  "Is that Mr. Melrose?"  "Ves.    Who arc you?"  "Staines. Can you come round  lo my office at once? I have something very important to put beforo  you.  Arthur's heart leapt for joy.  Something very important couid  have ouly one interpretation to a  hungry lover, and that was that  Air. Staines had relented. "I'll bo  with you immediately, sir," he  mark:   "I   rely on  you,   Mr.   Melrose, to make this show up, well."  "I'll do my best, sir," replied  Arthur; quietly, but with_ a curious sense of discomfort at" the financier's tone. "But what if it  shouldn't?" ho added.  Mr. Staines smiled a dry, peculiar  smile. "Don't let us consider such  an improbable contingency, my  dear sir," he said. "I am most  anxious that ifc should show well;  indeed, it must. But, of course,  it's entirely in your -hands now.  Let me have your report as soon as  possible. Now, that's all. [ think."  He held out his hand, which Arthur  grasped and retained while the tried  to form a question.  "Well,   what is it?"  "I wish to ask two questions,  Mr. Staines."  "H'm���������������������������be brief then, pray."  "I shall, sir. The first is : is Miss  Staines quite well and happy?"  Mr. Staino. frowned. "She's in  sound bodily health, so far as I can  judge," he said, slowly. Then,  with a touch of petulance, "But I  find her as little amenable to reason as an unbroken filly."  Arthur's eyes glowed with pride.  "My brave darling!" he murmured.  "Oh. yes���������������������������oh, yes; you gloat over  my discomfiture, do you?" snorted  Mr. Staines. The next moment the  irritation in his face gave way to a  sly smile. "As a matter of fact,  my dear sir, she has shown such  a pretty spirit in your defence that,  if you do your duty to me in this  investigation and .so prove your  shrewdness in finance, I may be disposed to  change my attitude."  Arthur wrung Mr. Staines's hand  with a vigor that ma-de him wince.  "That answers    my    second  ques  tion,  now,  ed I  I'm off  "  hc said, joyfully.-  sir, and you may rest assur  shan't fail vou  on the desk, carefully adjusted his  glasses, and glanced over it; and  a. look of���������������������������was if relief that flashed  a look of���������������������������was it relief that flashed  "This," he said, looking up, "is  even better than I had hoped, my  dear sir. The average profits for  the past five years are ������������������17,562 9s.  4d.    Capital���������������������������really capital!"  ' Arthur could hardly beiicve his  ears. "I think you are making a  mistake, sir," he said. "Seven  ���������������������������not seventeen���������������������������is the correct figure."  "Eh?" cried Mr. Staines, peering close. "So it is. What a- ridiculous error! I'll have to see my  optician about-this."  "And thc worst feature of it,"  pursued Arthur, "is that the average, such as it is, is distinctly  misleading. The profits have declined steadily during that period.  The business looks dear and risky  at the price you mentioned. Don't  meddle with it, sir."  "You forget," said the financier, slowly, "that I intend to act  merely .as intermediary between  Lambsons' iind thc public, and, .if  we pull the strings in a tactful way,  the public won't fail us."  "But you spoke of ������������������200,000,"  gasped Arthur. "None but madmen would subscribe for shares at  such a capital."  Mr. Staines peered hard at Arthur, smiling peculiarly. Their suddenly he bent forward and said,  ir. a low, tense voice :���������������������������  "Supposing ��������������������������� only supposing ���������������������������  that the average had been seventeen ; what then?"  The dark suspicions as to Mr.  Staines   which had  >p  swered; and,  an  his hat, dart-  get  out again scathless. But it's  no fun fo such a girl as Lucy. I  ought tu have foreseen this, I suppose ;  but  I've  been  so immersed  in business that Humph ! h_ve  a cigar  before you  go."  He shoved the cigar-box towards  Aii.hur, but the latter shook his  head, while a numbing pain gripped  his  heart.  ed downstairs.  A bare half-mile separated the offices, and Arthur covered thc dis:  tanee at a" pace tliat caused many  a pedestrian to step hurriedly aside  and stare after him. Wheii ho was  ushered panting into Mr. Staines's  presence, tlie financier smiled dryly  as he noted tho flushed, expectant  look on his face.  "Be seated, und get cooled down  a bit while 1 polish my spectacles,  Mr. Melrose," hc said. "Now,"  he proceeded, after that operation  had been accomplished to his satisfaction, "I require the services of  a smart accountant, and I have decided to give you tho first refusal  of the offer. You will find it a very  remunerative commission. Do you  accept?"  "I���������������������������I thought,"    stammered  Arthur, wilh falling countenance, and  checked   himself   with  a  gulp���������������������������"I  mean that I shall  be 0"  III.  any service  be delighted to  to you."  '���������������������������K:  xcusc    me,    Mr.    Staines;    I  icar  your  answer  s ho uic!   like to  first,   if you   please  "You've heard it."  "And���������������������������and I'm rejected?"  "That's  a  hard  word,   Mr.   Melrose.     Let  us  say  declined."  "May  1  ask nn  what grounds?"  "Certainly ; but that necessitates  me prying a little more closely into  (your  financial  position   andpros-  pects-than^Lcare-to-nuiderHhc^ci .--  eumslances."  "My business ns a chartered accountant, Mr. Staines, brings nie  an average-' three hundred a year,  and it is growing steadily."  "Quite so," said Mr. Staines,  bowing politely. "Xow, what does  rumor say of mine?"  ''I'm too well occupied dealing  /with hard facts, Mr. Staines, to  waste time hearkening to rumor,"  said Arthur, a little stiffly.  An approving smile flashed across  the financier's face at this. "Well,  then, Mr. 'Melrose, .here's a little  sum for you. Multiply your income  ly ten, then triple the answer, and  you'll still be short of my past-  year's income. Xow I think you  will understand why you are declined. The man who weds Lucy must  be above the slightest suspicion of  ���������������������������er���������������������������mercenary motive."  "Mr. Staines," said Arthur,  flushing, "if you suspect mc of being    a    mere      fortune-hunter,    1  a wear " .  "Tut,  tut; I suspect nothing.    1  know (no iiitle of you to form conclusions    one    way    or    another;  though   I'"I   admit   that  what  J.  do  know of you I rather like.    Still,  you, as a man of the world, must  acknowledge that the reason staled  js amply sufficient to justify my attitude in this matter."    Hc pulled  out  his  Avatch.     "Ha,   twenty-two  piiuutes!   This won't do.   Allow me  "Then that's settled.    And now,  f suppose you've heard of Lambsou  Brothers?"  "Thc tea merchants?   Yes."  "Well,  I  have thc option of acquiring their  business as a going  concern,  and I want you to make  a careful audit of their books and  accounts before closing with it.

Mr. Staines', paused and rubbed  his���������������������������hands;��������������������������� while-his -shrewd -eyes  sparkled eagerly through his glasses upon Arthur, who was not a little startled by the magnitude of tho  figures. And he had thought in his  love-blindness to have impressed  this man with his paltry tin .0 hundred a yea]'. Mr. Staines resumed  with slow emphasis: "Providing, as  I-have hinted, that we make the  bait sufficiently attractive to tho  investing public, as I'm satisfied  we can. Iu that event I propose  to pay you a fee of five hundred  pounds, and will recommend you  for the permanent accountantship  in tho company, If the thing falls  flat you must, of course-, be satisfied with a merely nominal fee. Is  that clear?"  Arthur bowed. What between  disappointment on one hand and  joy afc being presented with such ,i  golden opportunity on the other'his  thoughts were in a turmoil. "1  hardly know how to thank you, Mr.  Staines," he stammered.  "Tho sort of thanks [ want,"  smiled the financier, "h a report  th.at will bring the fish int. our not  ���������������������������er���������������������������I should rather say, give the  public an opportunity-of participating in our good fortune Cau you  be .in your audit to-day?"  "Certainly."  "Then  I'll give you a letter  to  Lambson's now,"  Hc rapidly scribbled out a note,  which he handed over with the re-  With Mr. Staines's last words  ringing a pleasant chime.in his ears  and Lucy's sweet face filling his  mental vision, Arthur enthusiastically attacked .Lambsons' -books.  Verily the cup of joy was approaching his lips, and he was resolved  that if energy and thoroughness  would prevent the coveted thing-  eluding his grasp a second time, .he  would surely drink of. it. All day  he and his clerks examined, checked, verified; and when evening arrived, and his assistants had gone  home, he was still working on.  But to let matters rest there till  tho morrow was not'to be thought  cf; so hc engaged a cab, and bore  the books home to his room. Scarcely halting to appease the call of out-  r|a_ed  appetite  (he  had  eaten  no  lunch     that day,    and    curiously  enough,  had never missed it),    he  continued   his  labors  far  into  the  night.   For several days he worked  unstintingly.      Only  when he  had  reduced tho chaos of   figures to a  simple statement of assets and liabilities, and had arrived at the exact profits of the business for the  five  preceding years,  did   he   realize that he was completely worn  out,  but with the pleasant fatigue  that comes to  the    man  who  has  fought hard and won.    Lambsons'  had come well, if not precisely brilliantly,  out    of  the    ordeal,   and  Lucy's radiant   ficr   seemed very  _1--_=aii_{=i _ ._=_irfc^iai. mo'mentr^Ar^  thur bent his aching eyes once more  upon the figures to reassure himself that he was not merely dreaming; but no, there, in truth, they  were.   Hc gave a sigh of profound  relief, and then, for the first time  since his    investigation   began,   he  found leisure to reflect on the price  Mr.' Staines proposed inviting thc  p li b 1 i c-tb'-p ay- f o 1 v. t h e - business, an d  to make a swift calculation thereon.  The next moment he gasped, and  his pleased survey of the figures  was changed into a glare of blank  dismay, whilo his sweetheart's vision grew strangely nebulous and remote. For a brief space hc sat  stricken into immobility, staring  at the tell-tale figures that said,  oh, so brutally! that after all Lambsons' was not the key that was to  unlock the door of happiness to  liim, unless���������������������������was it possible he had  blundered somewhere? The mere  suspicion acted like a tonic. With  the energy of despair he proceeded to revise every item.  * -if       .#'���������������������������.# #  A few days afterwards Mr.  Staines was dictating letters in his  private room, and wondering -between whiles why he had not heard  been steadily  giowing in Arthur's mind now materialized in a flash, and he stared  at- the other in speechless horror.  Mr. Staines seemed disconcerted.  He averted his eyes and said, carelessly :���������������������������  "By the way, I told Lucy this  morning I'd probably bring you to  dinner this evening. Will you  come?"  All the forces of good and evil in  Arthur's nature were at war theii  as the tempting bait dangled before  his eyes, and for a brief space his  destiny hung by a hair. Mr.  Staines, calmly nursing his chin,  darted a swift sideways glance at  him that plainly invited speech, and  all at once Arthur's troubled face  grew set and stern.  "Xo," he said, curtly.  "Ah, a prior engagement, perhaps; Lucy will be vexed.."  "Xo moje than I, sir," said Arthur, in a voice he vainly tried to  keep calm. "But since seven isn't  seventeen, and never can be, I havo  no option in the matter. I have  simply to say"���������������������������here his tone hardened into fierceness���������������������������"that if  Lambsons' .is ever offered to the  public I'll see to it that they don't  go into the thing blindfold.' I wish  you good afternoon, sir."  He tamed to go, but ere he reach-/,-  ed the door Mr. Staines had rushed  in front and seized his hand in an  impetuous grip.  _"I beg your pardon a thousand  times, my dear fellow," he cried,  very red in the face.

STRANGE RACE IN TIBET  THE CHINESE COULD NEVER  SUBJUGATE THEM.  Ilsifani   Arc   Wild   Pwplc, Who  Eight Among Hills Against  Chinese.  Commandant Oilone has returned  io France after two years in Tibet,  in"' the northwest part .of.,.which ho  discovered    a ' strange    race,   tho  ilsifani.    /-'Ho    says      of    them:  "Though nominally under the suzerainty  of  the    Chinese  emperor,  they havo  never  been  subjugated.  In contrast with tho rest of Tibet  the land is generally fertile. Grass  giows almost everywhere and even  among    the      highest    mountains  (somo 19,000 feet) the slopes are so  gentle and regular that there.are  very few places where a man may  not ride on  horseback.    It is  for  this reason that the Chinese have  never  been able    to    subdue    tho  Ilsifani.   Having a social organization-like-the clans of Scotland and  being    well    mounted    on    horses  which are a- cross between the shaggy Mongol and    the    finer Syrian  stock,  which  they  ride  with  skill,  they  fight each   expedition   which  thc empire sends  against them as  the Boors fought the British troops  in tho Transvaal.  RAISE STOCK.  "Their stock-raising sheep,  horses, goats and yaks, and their  trade in skins give them all they  want to live upon. They are very  sober in habit and practically live  upon tea, which they drink with  melted butter and barley meal.  They win their-arms by their forays and will ride several days and  as far as GOO miles to surprise a  caravan. Besides the long lance,  each man carries a gun of somo  kind or other and Russian guns are  becoming common.. The Hsifani fit  their guns with a forked stand, such  as was fitted to the eighteenth century musket, and so are able to  take good aim. They live in tents  and wear no other ��������������������������� clothing than  sheep skins in the rough sewn together. The Chinese have been  able to subdue them only in tho  lower valleys, where some of the  tubes have built villages.  RELIGION AND CUSTOMS.  "As  for their  religion  and customs they arc peculiar to the race.-  -They have made a 'salad' of several theologies.   They practice simultaneously    Buddhism,  Brahminisin  and a primitive religion nofc" unlike  that of the ancient- ���������������������������  Greeks  and  early    Scandinavians,   worshipping  the spirits of the rivers, plains and  'mountains.    So pious are they that  they never drink  before invoking  the spirit of the four points of the  compass or of the mountains which  lie in such directions.    Their chief .^  deity is the Anie-Matche,  spirit of ^  the highest mountain or their country,  and they pray to  him,  curiously  enough,   both  for  good  and  for evil actions.    For them he represents strength; virtue is repro-  sented _by_Buddha."  SOME BRIEF PROPER  NAMES.

TEACHING B.  STORIES.  ISSTJT] NO.-32���������������������������oq.-  How an   English   Teacher   Drove  Home a Moral Lesson.  The simple manner in which a  moral lesson can be conveyed t-o the  mind of a child was delightfully demonstrated recently at the house  of Mrs. Eric Hambro, London, England. The children sat round a  slightly raised platform with their  backs to the audience. Mr. Gould,  with the aid of a blackboard, commenced straightway to take thorn  into his confidence. "I am going  t-o draw a map," said Mr. Gould,  with a smile; "and I wonder if you  can name the country���������������������������I wonder ���������������������������"  It was a crude outline, but thi"  teen hands weni up simultaneously.  "India I" came a chorus of tlvn  voices.. "And the religion of the  people?" "They are Mahometans."  And there and then he told a story  of Jelal, the Mahometan teacher,  who bowed acknowledgment to a  street child that had bowed to him.  "Now, what trait had the great  Jelal displayed in bowing to 1'iat  child?" Thirteen children male  thirteen guesses, but the woH that  expressed the situation was not  named. "Never mind," said Mc  Gould; "it will occur-to you presently," and with charming tact he  commenced to relate a story of a  gentleman -who, while traveling in  p. Parisian railway carriage- with a  number of miners, was asked if he  objected to their smoking. He replied in the negative, although suffering from a bronchial affc.tior..  "Any way, the miners put away  their pipes," the "story-teller pro  ceeded. "Now, what had they  shown?" "Respect," came the answer in a flash. Then back the  children were taken to India and  the story of Jelal. They saw the  point, and so at the end of twelve  minutes a great lesson had been  taught in the simplest of ways.  So by story-telling Mr. Gomd  built up "a golden ladder" of respect���������������������������respect to. a child- an invalid, a teacher, other nations, other  religions and to animals.

FIREMEN'S HAND SIGNAL.   .  A-code of hand signals, which  appears to be something similar to  tho "tic-tac" operations of the  racecourse tout, has been adopted  by the Edinburgh Fire Brigade.  It is supposed lo be the only brigade to be in possession of such a  system. The uses are _ apparent  when a fireman finds himself isolated in the upper part of, say a tall  tenement. Leaning out ofthe window he could signal to his colleagues in the street that the fire-  escape was required, or that another line of hose should be brought  into use. Then, again, a fireman  posted on the roof could signal below that another steamer should be  telephoned for, or, perhaps, a second hose-tender, under circum-  stanmes when the loudest shout  would be without avail.  The girl who knows how to make  good biscuit and cream gravy seldom knows how to carry on a flirtation.  ^Don't^cxpciimcnt^with^unsntis-  factory substitutes.

BABYLON'S ANCIENT WALLS.  _i  Primeval Dwellings 5,000 Years Old,  Beneath Euphrates.  The most ancient walls of Babylon were constructed of sun-burnt  brick, scarcely distinguishable from  the closely packed earth, and some  idea can be obtained of the extreme  difficulty of the WQrk of excavation.  The oldest Babylonian houses which  have been uncovered themselves  rest on rubbish heaps and ruins,  but deeper diggings is impossible  owing to the fact that water level  has been reached. The Euphrates  channel has silted up several metres during the past 5,000 years, and  the primeval dwellings are now below it. While we were standing at  the bottom ol one of these pits a  workman struck out with his pick  the little heap of ornaments, a couple of copper bracelets and the  beads of a necklace that had been  worn by some Babylonian woman in  the third millenium before Christ,  and were restored at last to the  light of the sun.

C.  b_--__H_M_N    .SHS-IIMILII11IL.I  The Western Canada Trade Gazette  recently had the following article on  'The Local Paoer as a factor in the  Development of the Town':  Where there is a railway station  and a fair collection of business houses and residences, you may be sure  to find a hustling individual who is  locally known as 'the editor.' In  many instances he combines many of  the mechanical duties of the otfice  with that of editing his paper. He  is devoting his energies to the upbuilding of the town and district.  Incidentally be is adding to the value of every town lot and every acre  of farm land within the district.  Unfortunately in many cases a  newspaper is not recognized as a financial asset of a town, for the town  seldom' realizes the amount of benefit  it receives from a newspaper. With  the large number of people who are  looking to this province as their future home, the local newspaper is one  of the most potent factors in determining their immediate location.  If a prospective settler sees a copy  of a paper   which    contains   a   large  number of advertisements, he forms a  corresponding idea of the importance  of the town.   If there be only   a few  business houses represented in the ad.  columns, the man who is not on the  spot does not   know of the existence  of others, and therefore forms erroneous impressions of the business   importance of the particular point   under consideration.   Fie may decide' to  go to some place else, which is a direct loss to the town.  The advantage of advertising in  the local paper is one which is lost  sight of sometimes by retailers  though the marvelous successes in  business by men who attribute their  achievements   largely to advertising,  October 7, 1909  They refuse to look on the dSfk side  of anything. If there is, a hard winter they get . an interview with the  inevitable old timer . who recalls  "that the best crop the country ever  had was after a winter just like this"  If the harvest does not come up to  the expectations, the newspaper man  discovers by the wishbone of somebody's goose that the coming winter  will be exceptionally mild. Newspaper  men are "all the time" boosters.  POULTRY RAISING.  "Your folks must be mighty exceptionally fond of egg-plant," remarked the grocer's clerk to the deacon's  son when the two met after the  church services one Sunday. "Your  father ordered two dozen of 'em yesterday."  "Oh, that's easily explained. You  see, dad's been reading about the latest methods of chicken-raising, and  he decided to try the business. Although the books advise the beginners to purchase adult fowls, dad decided it was better to start the egg  plant."  MORE  CELESTIALIZATION.  Only -three more cases within the  past two-weeks of white girls being  ruined by Chinese, two of which  were at the Coast. These cases  came to the surface, how about those  that did not appear?

In - the  latter instance he is not only neglecting his opportunities but putting  his own.town in a bad light.  Do not say that advertising is not  read. That has been disproven so  long ago and so often that it is unnecessary to repeat the proofs.  Do    not    be   afraid the newspaper  man will 'get rich too quickly   if you  patronize him.   It is characteristic of  the business that the men engaged in  it do not lay up hoarded wealth with  alarming rapidity.  They are   alwavs  buying something   that   will   enable  them to get out   a better paper,   or  improving . their    place    of business.  They   improve    their paper just    as  surely and as quickly as tbeir papers  are awarded    with financial support.  They    are . boosting their town   and  Fnrlprhv   T.

Prices, Oct. 7th  and until changed:  The Best  Dressed Man  -in Canada  . Although only 30 years of age,  jMr. Jordan, generally to-_ sidei-eid  by competent-judges to be "the  best dressed man in Canada,"  has aire;. _y amassed a large fortune, and is recognized as one of  the shrewdest business men in  Canada.  "I am convinced," he is credited with saying "that my determination to always dress well  and stylishly has helped me materially in any success that I have  attained.. I consider that every  dollar I have spent in good  clothes has brought me big dividends. Many young men lack  confidence and aggressiveness,  and therefore are never successful, simply because they are conscious of their'neglect to dress as  they should if they wish to mingle with successful men."  Mr. Jordan is generally dressed  in 20th Century Brand garments.  We are th _ only store handling  20th Ceritur v Brand Garments in  Enderby.
