Read it. The reference  therein -to. Walker's Weekly, bvjhereyer^  end gentleman in question, and to the  "ijnaginings'. of its editor, is quite in line  with the general policy of that class of  God's servants who do not know and are  blind to reason. It is not new. We have  been up against it before. But in this instance the holy father is either deplorably  ignorant of what he is, talking, about or  does not care and prefers to run a priestly  bluff on Bruce/ After the kind, fatherly  talk pur friend Bruce has given him, the  bumptious holy father will have to conclude  that his bluff didn't stick.  We are not seeking a controversy with  this Catholic priest. It is his privilege to  remain blind to actual conditions if he finds  comfort in blindness. But what was stated  in this paper with reference to the priestly  influence in keeping our Indians in darkness, and which the reverend gentleman of  telephony connection objects to, was and  is absolutely true. We have an Indian reserve at our front door, and we of Enderby  know. One would have to be blinder than  the proverbal bat���������������������������as blind as a priest���������������������������  not to see the iniquitous operation of the  Indian law. Its educational feature is a  farce. The Indians are infinitely worse off  today than they were before they were  given over to the priest. And is the priest  entirely to blame ior this? No, but lack of  education and elevating influence is. And  the responsibility for this rests with the  priest, since the law gives him control.  We are told by some t who -think they  know, that: the British. Columbia Indians  arebeyond-redemption.   Thisi^purerion-:  sense, -bom of" ignorance.   Give'm& Indian1  a chance before, condemning Him. -"��������������������������� Forty,  years ago the parents of the .writer, were  working for the government among the  B. C. Indians. We were not on the ground  at the time and cannot speak authoritatively  but if half what we have heard is. true,  the Indian children made apt scholars in  school, and the Indians, when the right, in?  fluences were brought to bear, responded  readily to the higher attributes in man.  To take from the Indian his natural religion and thrust upon him a religion of penance with dollar-and-cent penalties, is to  drive out of him his innate goodness andjput  jnto him sloth, cunning, deception.   This  we havedone, aM^we^blame^the^ridianr^  From personal observation on the Lapwai  reservation, prior to its being bought by  the U. S. government from the Nez Perce  Indians, and from a slight knowledge of  the Kamaiis, a neighboring tribe, we are  convinced of the great possibilities of our  Indians under proper conditions. Give  them government" schools and an- open  church on the reserves; give them a resident Indian agent on each reserve whose  heart has some of the milk of human kindness left; buy from them the land they  cannot use, paying them all it is worth;  give to the head of each Indian family a  sum sufficient to buy for him horses and  implements to enable him to work the land  he keeps, and place the balance in a reserve  fund out of reach of the priestly-imposed  penalties, and subject only to the check of  the Indian reservation agent endorsed by  the head of the Indian Department, and  we shall, in a measure at least, have overcome the Indian problem.  We of British Columbia, and especially of  the Okanagan, where so much of the land  is tied up in these useless reserves, cannot  afford to longer submit to this imposition.  If the Indians are to be our neighbors, we  must, if for no other reason than self-preservation,  demand that they shall be given educational and  proper administrative facilities on each reserve.  It is our duty to see that the Indians get, and are  permitted to keep, what rightly belongs to them.

'"I do wish avc had some decent  Hatches!"  he  exclaimed.  "Decent matches!'' laughed  grandma, whose lamp Phil was  .ighting. "1 wonder what you would  Jiink of the very first matches 1  {an remember, or, better still, of  <A\e first your grandmother's mothei  'used. J have heard her tell about  ."���������������������������hem, and I don't believe that lamp  .vould be lighted now if you had haci  to use one of them.

"Jf there wasn't* any fire J couki  ���������������������������.ise ?'"' repeated Phil, in a puzzler;  r.one.     "Why  should  1  need    an,.  'ortingly. Then they both laughed  ;o think how times have changed.*  "I was quite a girl," continued  grandma, "when we had out first  friction-matches, matches that light  by scratching on a rough surface,  [ mean. I am afraid you would  .ot have thought them 'decent  Hatches,' but I thought them very  .vonderful. They would not strike  .vith a little easy scratching on tho  jottom of your shoe or the under  ���������������������������ide of a table; instead it took a  very rough surface, and wc had to  ���������������������������cratch hard. We used sand-paper,  .'olded two rough surfaces together,  leld the paper tight, and drew thc  natch between the layers. And for  ill that, we thought these matches  -0 fine that it never occurred to us  hat our grandchildren _ould pos-  ibly havo anything better."  "Well,"  said  Phil,  laughing,  as  he supperbell sounded,    "perhaps  hose new parlor-matches of yours  re  pretty    decent,   after , all."���������������������������-  Youth's Companion.

When pressing scams in heavy material do not run iron along thc  seams as in ordinary ironing. Put  iron down with considerable  and after holding it there  a moment lift it up and put ia down  again a little farther along. In this  way thc scam will not be pushed or  pulled out of shape.

Thc  fabrics should remain in thc sugar  of lead bath about a half an hour  <"r so before going to thc suds. Vinegar is good for reviving colors.  Mending Table Linen.���������������������������A neat-  way to mend a hole in table linen  is to darn it with linen threads off  jn. old tablecloth. It will look much  neater than a patch sewed on. It  is advisable to keep a piece of a  discarded tablecloth in the mending basket for that purpose.  ft em. "Wipe dry and wrap each ono  in paper, separately.

"But the match   . .ulrin't strike  it wasn't made so it could," replied  j; ran dm a.  Phil put away thc broken .nd  burned matches, picked up the bip  \ngora cat, and settled himself ii.  1 big chair. "Jf you'll tell about  he matches that wouldn't strike,'  he said, in his most persuasive tone,  "I won't fuss to-morrow night if !  lave to try three."  Grandma smiled and closed hei  book.  "You couldn't strike them. Phil,  because they were not tipped with  anything that would light from  'scratching it. Think of a match  ���������������������������..ix inches long! That was the way  th_y. were made and there wt-s  nothing but sulphur put on for ihr.  tip."  "What good were they if they  wouldn't  strike?"   asked   Phil.  "Oh,   a great deal,"     answered  his   grandmother.      "If   you    had  some fire on  hand you could light  a  'spjnk,'   as    they  called    them,  very quickly, for sulphur blazes in  a twingling;  and you could carry  your  match  from   lamp ..to    lamp,  instead of bringing the lamps    or  candles to the lire.   Of course there-  are other things that light as quickly as sulphur.    P.per does;     but  burnig paper isn't very pleasant to  handle.    The way  in  which  these  matches  were  most useful, was  in  lighting new fires, I think.   People  tried to keep fire on hand in those  days, when a new fire was so hard  to kindle, hut if a new one had to  be lighted it was" a pretty fine thing  to be able to use one of these spunks  that you think were no good. .

In nearly all countries a seasonal  aovement of rats from houses and  >arns to the open fields occurs in  .pring, and the return movement  akes place as cold weather ap-  >roaclies. The movement is noticeable even in large cities.  More general movements of rats  /ften occur.    In  190'. a multitude  A migrating rats spread over several  counties  of   western   Illinois,  /or several years prior to this in-  /asion no abnormal numbers were  -.oen, and their coming was remarkably sudden.   An eyewitness to the  phenomenon informed    the    writer  :hat as  hc was    returning to  his  ionic by moonlight he heard a general  rustling in thc field near by,  :ind soon a vast army of rats crossed  _hc road in front of him, all going  m one direction.   The mass stretched away as far as could be seen  i.r  the  dim  light.    These animals  remained on thc farms and in the  villages of the surrounding country,  .ind during the winter and summer  cf 190-1 were a veritable plague.   A  local  newspaper    stated    that  between'March 20 and April 20, 1904,  P.. U. Montgomery of Preemption,  Mercer county, killed 3,435 rats on'  his farm.   He caught most of them  in  traps.  In 1S77 a similar migration occurred into parts of Saline and  Lafayette counties, Mo., and in  190-1 another came under the writer's observation in Kansas River  Valley. This valley for the most  part was flooded by the great freshet of June, 1903, and for about ten  days was covered with several feet  of water.

In the fall of 1903  much of the.districfc was visited by  hordesof rats, which remained during the winter, and by the following spring had so increased in numbers that serious losses of grain and  poultry resulted.

In England  a general movement of rats inland  from the coast occurs every October. This is closely connected with  thc closing of thc herring season.  During the fishing tho rodents  swarm to the coast, attracted by  the offal left from cleaning thc herring, and when this food supply  fails they hasten back to thc farms  and villages.

An invasion of black rats in the  Bermuda Islands occurred about  the year 1615.

Decision in Dispute Between Mexican Towns After 340 Years.  A final statement has just been  made- in a lawsuit which has been  pending in the courts of Mexico for  340 years.-  The dispute arose between the local authorities of the towns "of Yo-  docome and Munn over the question  of the legal boundary line between  the two villages.' Both towns held  'titles to the same-land, the conflicting grants being made .by the Cole nial Government. The titles held  by- private - parties brought suit  against-the, other for the land  claimed to.be justly due to it.  ' The"suit -dragged .along for the  first hundred years,' one "legal step  after another being taken by the  contending towns. ' Another century passed and then another, and  still the suit was undecided. During  all this time the people of the respective towns were arrayed  against each other in- bitter enmity,  and many have been the armed conflicts that have taken place between  the opposing factions.  - The father'of President Porfirio  Diaz was a native of Yodocomc, and  stood high in the little country community because of his mental ability. He took an active interest in  the long-pending suit, and during  his life time made -every effort to  get a final decision of thc case. He  was unsuccessful, and the years  dragged by. President _Diaz gave  his personal attention  the matter  not long ago, and tho ancient re  cords relating to the land grants  and the conflicti'ng boundary were  carefully examined.  The matter was then laid before  the people of the two towns, and  after many conferences a settlement  of the case was reached and the suit  in court was formally dismissed. It  is said" to havo held-a place upon  tho court docket longer than any  suit in the world's history.   41 ^  AN $80,000 MAP.  Great Map of Country of London  Now Nearing Completion.

When a prisoner leaves thc dock  of a court room, struggling to look  bra-ve under tho weight of a three  year's sentence in thc Kingston  Penitentiary, few in all the curious  crowd realize'the kind of life to  which the judge's sentence has just  compelled him. Entering thc doors  of the "Pen" at Portsmouth, in  the suburbs of Kingston, Ontario,  tho convict is. stripped of every  piece of civilian clothing and -all  possessions, even to the cherished  photographs of the relatives at  homeland forced to don a suit of  coarse prison clothes with a number sewn on the back between the  shoulders. Henceforth the name  and worldly station of the newcomer are supposed to be blotted out,  hut in the mafia, of criminals, names  and records are almost instantly en  the tip of every tongue. Even the  commonplace "stories of the great  outside world, float over prison  walls with the mysterious certainty,  of the wireless.  VERY LITTLE LIBERTY.  From the first moment of-incarceration, the convict is very seldom  given .any measure of liberty. Uf  the 488 jarien and women occupants,  only, one or two have been permitted to drive loads of produce to the  local market unattended, or to carry ,on their work in" the fields without watching. Generally speaking,  the" rigorous, denial of a half-a-  thousand human creatures' liberty  i. carried out by Warden and  guards from year to year'with,the  precision of a huge machine.  Of the 488 criminals, only twelve  are women; 108 are in for 3 years,  90 for 5 years, 26 for-10 years "and  30 for life. ';"   '  The common' conception of the  "part played 'by drink in'swelling  the membership of prisons is borne  out by the "statistics at Kingston,  though, in;some details denied. ;  Dangerous. criminals as "a class  are.-temperate-in"the'use of liquor.  Success in crime, as in other occupations, requires a clear head and  scund"body.-"-Prison "officials have  como to believe that drink is made  the scapegoat for criminal instincts.  Almost without exception," the intemperate prisoner will assert his  innocence of the crime, charged  blandly chalking it up to "Drink."  Canadian penitentiaries as a whole  show -17' per ��������������������������� cent, abstainers,- 48  per cent, temperate, and 34..per  cent, intemperate.   ;  A PRISON SCHOOL.    .  - There is a prison school, too, for  in the isolated community lying, between the four huge walls on Portsmouth harbor, there must be a separate set of institutions, for those  of the free world are naturally denied. .  A big -bright school-room with  blackboards, chalk-and elementary  text'books^is'one^of'the'mostnnter^  esting points of tho penitentiary if  one i3 permitted to see a class at  work.  Fifteen adult "scholars" took up  Part 1 studies during thc past year;  eight were in Part 2; the entire  roll call number 64. The need for  instruction of this simple character  even for grown-ups ,is apparent  from the fact. that, a _great .many  ciiminals have been denied a single  day of schooling, or indeed any  other youthful attentions. Fourteen per cent, of the men and women in Canadian penitentiaries can  neither read or write.  LEARNED TO READ AND WRITE  As an instance of tho capital  work of the prison classes, twen-  ty-threo out of an enrollment of  sixty-four at the Kingston Penitentiary passed out this year capable  of reading and writing and with a  fair knowledge of the elementary  rules of arthmatic. Six retired owing to expiration of sentences.  Perhaps the most remarkable feature of the institution to the outsider is the library. There are five  thousand volumes, arranged in a  large room with a convict assistant  librarian in charge. To each convict in his cell is supplied a catalogue, and once or twice a week an  attendant calls at the cells, takes  the number of the book or magazine desired, and furnishes it the  next morning. Convicts are allowed  to read in their cells after the ev-  are in constant use. Fiction, as'  might be " supposed, takes first  place, for it seems the prisoner's  one chance for even fanciful liberty.

SEPTEMBER 23, 1909  Enderby Prize Poultry  HERE'S to our poultrymen!  The large number of  prizes won by Enderby poultry at the Vernon Fair speaks  volumes for the general high  quality of the fowl in the  various breeds. Our poultry  raisers richly deserve the  success that is theirs. They  are bringing the. quality of  their pens up to' a high standard, which Js certain to be  still further improved as the  seasons come and go, and  must surely win for Enderby  a good name in the prize  poultry world.  Prize Fruit  THE people of Mara and  North Enderby are coming forward with samples of  the finest quality of apples  to be seen anywhere. They  feel sore to think that a fruit  grower, setting himself up  as an authority, should show  such inexcusable ignorance  of the district as to condemn  the land of the district for  fruit growing when they can,  and have for years, produced  such a splendid quality of  fruit. The soil and climate  of this district have not been  extensively advertised, but  the finest quality of apples  produced / in the Okanagan  have been and are being  grown right here, Vernon  "experts" to the contrary,  notwithstanding. We were  shown some Wealthy apples  from C. S. Handcock's place  this week that we defy the  world to beat. Come on  with your fruit, you wise  ones, and we'll show you.  We haven't the quantity but  we have the quality, and we  are going to have the quantity, too.   "Bruce" Raps   His  Holiness  ONE cannot read the sane,  manly writings of Bruce  in the Saturday Sunset, from  week joweek, without recognizing' in him one of our best:  and truest newspapermen,  and one who has done andis  doing a great deal of good  for Vancouver, for the Province and for the Dominion.  In Bruce Western Canada  has a man.wejcouldjiotwell  get along without. He is a  man, too, that, while you do  not have to agree with, you  make a fool ot yourself if  you attempt to drive. Anybody but a bigot would recognize this fact. And so it  is not strange that Bruce  should feel called upon to  make these caustic remarks  in the last issue of his paper:  "A Reverend Father of the  Roman Catholic Church rang up  the editor of this paper the other  day to complain of the reproduction of an article from Walker's  Weekly of Enderby, regarding  the relations of the Catholic  Church with the Indians of British Columbia and to question my  right to republish the article.  "It is not unusual for people to  find matter in this paper with  which they do not agree, but it  was the first occasion on which  the editor of this paper has been  told that he had no right to publish matter with which his critic  did not agree. The Reverend  Father took that position  not  withstanding the fact that he  was plainly told the columns of  this paper were at his disposal to  reply to anything to which he  objected. This apparently was  not satisfactory to him for he  maintained that as the matter  was offensive and untrue and  merely the result.of the Enderby  editor's imaginings, I had no  right to give it further circulation  "It was pointed out to him that  the editor of Walker's Weekly  was doubtless as sincere in his  strictures as was his reverence in  denouncing them, but he insisted  that this paper had no right to  re-publish such matter. He refused absolutely to discuss the  issue raised by the editor of  Walker's Weekly.  'Aside from the merits of the  point raised by the editor of the  Enderby paper I wish to make a  few remarks on the attitude of  my priestly critic.  "It is one of intolerant and insufferable impertinence. I trust  that is clear. I deny the right of  any cleric of any denomination  whatever to bridle or rope me as  a public writer. When I gave  the Reverend Father the opportunity of denying or refuting the  charge made against his cloth I  went as far as any fair-minded  editor could go. That, as I said,  was unsatisfactory to him. He  denied'Jmy right to republish the  views of a brother editor and  questioned the latter's veracity.  and motives. It is only a modern  revelation of the intolerance,  bigotry and inquisitorial zeal  which has characterized all religious sects which set themselves  in authority over the temporal  affairs of men. Queen Mary cut  off the heads, or sent to the stake  those outside the pale of the1  church, and Queen Elizabeth  performed like services for those  inside the church, . from exactly  the same point of view occupied  by the reverend gentleman who  ; claims the right to throttle the  press.  "Personally I respect every  man's religion���������������������������I never ask what  it may be. It is the last question  I would think of asking any man,  and it is the first I would resent  from any other man. I consider  that a man's religion is his own  private business and that of no  one else, but if his church or my  own attempts to butt in and dictate the policy of this paper it is  only courting a castigation which  will not be long in forthcoming.  It is one of the glories of this  Western community that a man's  religion is rarely questioned. I  could not name the creed of one  out of ten men   I   know in this  city.   I don't want to know. It's  none of my business.  "This criticism is not written  because it happened to be a Catholic priest who offended. The  same medicine would have been  as freely administered to a Presbyterian or Methodist parson  who exhibited the same sort of  presumption. It is the old, old  principle of hands off the press,  hands off the state for all clerics.  As for this paper, no sect nor  creed can dictate to it any more  than any party or class or race  may. If there is one thing the  writer of this page will not stand  for it is clerical interference, no  matter by what name the creed  goes.''

This  was particularly so with regard  _to the exhibits of poultry and  horses.  "The poultry exhibit," says  The Okanagan, "was beyond all  doubt the best which has ever  graced a fall fair in Vernon, and  it was remarkable for quantity  as well as quality. Enderby had  a good exhibit and so had Peachland, and their example,- now  that the ice is broken, will have  a stimulating effect on local exhibitors and exhibitors from other  towns."  In the neighborhood of 75 birds  were exhibited by Enderby poultrymen. T. & W. Pound, won  the greatest number of prizes���������������������������  14 in all. They carried off 1st  on Buff Orpington cock, 1st and  2nd on cockerel, 1st on hen, 2nd  on pullet, 1st on pen; in Black  Orpingtons, 2nd on cock, 2nd on  hen, 2nd on pullet, 2nd on pen;  in R.

G. H. Smedley won 1st on his  S. C. Black Minorca cock, 1st and  2nd on cockerel, 2nd on hen, 1st  on pullet, 1st on pen; in R. C.  Black Minorcas, 1st on cockerel  and 1st on pullet. -  . H. E.

Baird won 1st on his  White Plymouth Rock cockerel,  1st on pullet, 2nd on pen.  .' B. Brundish had it all his own  way in Silver Spangled Ham-  burgs, winning 1st on cock, cockerel, hen and pullet; in White  Orpingtons, 1st arid 2nd on cockerel and lst_ and 2nd on pullet.  In all,. 42 .prizes came to Enderby poulfryrhen.  Peary and the Pole  The most charitable construction that can be put upon Peary  is that the loneliness and dangers  he encounterad at the pole had  affected his ego. For downright  boorishness and bumptuous egotism his equal has not before  been in evidence on this continent. Why could he not have let  all the facts in connection with  Dr. Cook's discovery have been  properly presented and weighed  by competent authorities before  he began to hurl epithets and  give the lie? As it now stands  Dr. Cook has the sympathy of the  under dog. If he can establish  his claims that he reached the  pole a year before Peary did, the  latter will only have enhanced  Cook's achievement by the bitterness with which he has assailed  him.  If Cook did not reach the pole  his claims will bo his own condemnation. Cook's claims, if  untrue, would only have enhanced Peary's achievement,  while Peary has succeeded only  in making a cheap brawler of  himself at best. His voiciferous-  ness leads to the belief that he  himself is afraid of Cookts success. It is probable that both  have reached the pole. If that is  demonstrated the luster, of  Peary's achievement will have  been dimmed for all time by his  unseemly attitude and language,  both of which were unnecessary  whether Cook is telling the truth  or not.  It is deplorable that such an  exploit as the discovery of the  North Pole should have been  marked by such impetuous and  foolish denunciation as has been  given to the world by Commander Peary.���������������������������Saturday Sunset.  The Two Evils  , The total prohibitionist of the  present day and the unscrupulous  and law-breaking liquor vendor  may seem to be as far apart in  their ideas and practices as the  newly discovered north pole is  from the undiscovered south, but  such is not the case. They are  agencies which contribute, in  turn, to the strength.of the other,  and neither has much influence  for good on the morals of the  times. While they bear a decided  enmity towards each, other they  are a combined enemy of rational  law and sobriety.  The Liquor Traffic regulations  in British Columbia today would,  if enforced,<result in-the removal  of many shocking abuses and  bring about a moral condition acceptable, for the time being, to  the great majority of people,  and, with an exercise of wisdom,  could be added to until the liquor  traffic was brought satisfactorily  under such control as the welfare  of humanity demands. These  regulations are despised by the  prohibitionist, who contends.that  nothing short of a complete and  immediate acceptance of his ex-  treme views will meet the desired  end. He ignores history and experience, and keeps on shouting.  ���������������������������Alberni News.

A succession of dry seasons, each  _ little dryer than the last; a few  more sheep and cattle dying, a  .lightly higher price fur wool every  year, and to counterbalance that, a  larger percentage of loss allowed  the drover who is taking your stock  down to the markets or the railway.  Then the big squatter iinds that  he cannot all-rd to send his family  to England for a trip, and the small  farmer doesn't see his way to giving his family a fortnight in Sydney or Melbourne.  Then one realizes that the  drought has made good progress,  and that certain loss and possible  ruin must be faced with resignation.  *     , 7* .*'��������������������������� * *  It was upon an evening in the  same March, 1903, that Rcynell  leaned over his homestead fence  with some satisfaction. Things were  bad, but he had been lucky. Ha  could see spreading before him ln^  eighty acres of wheat, almost ripe.  That would fetch a lot with who .t  at eight shillings.  Tho tinkle of a cow-bell on tho  ridgo behind reminded him of the  sixty head of cattle he possessed,  and besides that he had four hundred sheep picking up a somewhat  precarious livelihood among the adjacent gorges.  Altogether prospects were bright.  He had only left England two years  ago, and he had taken up land in  the Blue Mountains.  Most people scorned the mountains, because half fch������������������ purveyed  .acreage was liable to be a precipice. But Iieynell had arrived during the drought, and on the advice  of an old farmer he had chosen the  hills.  rain's  going,"   said  the  , "it'll hit you there."

The little pockets among thc ranges  all around were delighting in the  prospect of high, prices for their  produce.  "Still," thought Rcynell, "it's  terrible dry."  Suddenly there was a sound of  galloping hoofs. In the still, warm  air "Iieynell couki hear thc slide and  'scuffle of a horse being taken full  speed down the steep track from  the ridge, and then thc muffled  drumming as it raced along tho  even gully towards the homestead.  i==^Veynl;lT_w6Tid_T_d".-" "Th" a'tr^lio"-  thought, "is an unshod horse, or  I'd have heard the click on the  stones.

But there must be someone  on it. or it'd have gone straig..-  down the gully and wouldn't have  turned up here at a right anglo. I  wonder   what'!,   the .matter !'.'  He soon knew. A big grey suddenly appeared in the arc of light  fjoin the window, and was pulled  up sharp on his haunches.  ���������������������������'Hullo!" said Iieynell.  "Ls that you, Mr. Iieynell, I'm  Jim Dwyer. There's a big hush  fire coming on father's place, aiul  lie wondered if you'd come and lend  a hand."  "A lire:" said iieynell.  "Yes.     it's  been   coniin'   up  all  day.    It's all around us now. Wo  can't get a horse through."  "Then how did you get here1?"  "Me?   I came on old Carpenter.  I. couldn't get the others to face the  fire.    Can you  help us,  Mr.  Iley-  ncll?"  "I'll go readily," said Rcynell,  "but if there's a fire between us,  you must stay here and let mc  know if there's any danger to Wallaroo. I can't afford to lose what  I've got."  "Bight oh!" said the lad, and he  swung off, a lithe, lean-featured  boy of thirteen. "Vou get away  quick and lively as long as you ean  ���������������������������since you're goin'. And thanks  -very much."  So Iieynell set out. Little Princess sprang away at a gallop. She  was named after someone who was  coming out some day to marry her  owner, and that implies that sho  was a good friend.  ed her shoulders and scrambled up  like a cat. Iieynell sat far forward  in the stirrups, and it was not long  before they were up. Then the little head"kept turning round. He  remembered that at thc top of the  pull there was always a lump of  sugar as a reward. He felt in his  pocket, and there was still some  there. Then they pounded along  the gradual down-grade towards  Dwyer's, fourteen miles away.  Ho let the Princess , have her  head. If Rcynell had been in the  habit of boasting, his boast would  have been that he never wore spurs,  nor carried a whip, and yet he always arrived soon enough.   .  And the little mare galloped on,  and on, until suddenly Iieynell,  half-asleep on her back, noticed  that the moon and stars.were no  longer ^visible, while :t pungent reek  of burning eucalyptus made him  cough. He was getting near the  fire.  He looked round. On either hand  the fringe of the mountains was  outlined red and glaring. Then  suddenly a red haze glowed before  him, and he was in the middle of  tho fire.  The next twenty minutes were a  nightmare. He dimly remembered  racing along the narrow bush track  ���������������������������a tunnel through the midst of the  blaze of flames.  He remembered great burning  limbs of tree:, crashing behind him  as he sped through. And then all  at once hc remembered bursting  out of the belt of flame, and cantering slowly down the slope towards Dwyer's homestead. He had  got through.  He reined up at the door. No  one was there, except Mrs. Dwyer  and Pattie, aged fourteen. Mrs,  Dwyer was very Irish,, and very  stout, and very courageous. As she  heard the hoofs she came out.  "Is ut you, Mister Iieynell?" she  said. "It's good av ye to come.  You'll be wantin' a drink. I'm  makin' tea for the bhoys."  She disappeared,   and    returned  with a pint pot of scalding,  milk-  less tea.  "Drink that," she said.  By degrees, Reynell absorbed -it,  and  gradually  his parched .tongue  and cracked lips gave him back his  voice.  ."Where are they?" he said.  "Out at the'idge of the fire. You  can  see them    against the flame.  Pattie '11 see to the mare."  Already Pattie had given her half  a bucketful of luke-warm water  and was taking off the bridle. Iieynell slipped down, and went across  the paddock to where several moving black figures wore silhouetted  against a red background. They  were trying to save the big wheat  paddock.  He made his way up to old Dwyer.  The latter, stripped almost to the  waist, and armed with a gum-tree  bough was occupied with thc rest  in beating down the approaching  llames'.  At thc edge of the wheat a "fire  L reach" had been made���������������������������that is to  say, thc timber had been cleared  away for a distance of ten yards.  But the undergrowth was still there  and tho fire licked it up like dry  shavings.  To keep this back was their task.  When it was subdued in one place,  itHbro _c=out=in=anot-hcr-f=and^theii-  in the old spot, and they were kept  moving up and down the line. It  was a despairing chance, but all  the same they fought for it.  Dwyer nodded to Iieynell.  "It's real neighborly av ye to  come," he gasped. "Dennis and  Jim's getting the cattle into thc  creek, and if wo can save thc wheat,  we're right."        ...  Iieynell tore off a branch and,  taking his place, beat at thc Hame..  livery few minutes old Dwyer  looked round to see if his two eldest sons had managed to save the  cattle. Every few minutes Patl.b"  came up staggering under the  weight of buckets of tea which was.  poured down tho burning IhroaU  of the fi re-fighters.  All at once he found before him  Mrs. Dwyer and Pattie and a lad.on  a huge grey horse.  ��������������������������� "You've got to leave," the boy  shouted. "The fire's close on to  your.place. It's not a mile away.  I managed to get through to tell  you. You asked mc to watch out."  Rcynellat first didn'.t quite grasp  the situation. He went on beating  in a mechanical way.  Mrs. Dwyer took up the talc.  "Go on, me bhoy, and save your  own���������������������������if you : can. You've done a  lot for us. I'm only hoping it hasn't  cost you dear. You'd best go before it's too late."  Iieynell understood at last. He  dropped the blanket and looked  round to where tho cattle were  gradually coming round to the shelter of the creek, and the sheep still  more gradually edging in.  They were nearly safe, but not  quite. And the wheat still far from  safe. The wheat was Dwyer's all  in.all. Old Dwyer had a large fam-  ilj into the bargain. Even if Wallaroo were lost" it wouldn't matter  so much. A young man can always  knock out a livelihood somehow.  "It's all right, Mrs. Dwyer," ho  said. "I can wait," and he started  once more to beat the flames.  Mrs. Dwyer looked at him. At  last she replied :  "Ye're a fine man, an' a good  neighbor, and may we never be thc  cause of your repenting. But I'm  afraid we will."  Th.en she went off to get more tea  and more water.  It might have been years later  Cas a matter of fact it was not an  hour) that old Dwyer went round  the paddock, dropped his blanket,  and remarked :  "I think she'll do now, you  chaps.    I thank you."  Then thc fire-fighters straightened themselves and looked round.  Dawn had not yet broken, but  in the grey light that precedes it,"  thc creek showed a curious appearance. The left-hand bank and most  of the right had been burnt bare.  In the deeper parts, driven there  to escape thc fire, lowed Dwyer's  cattle up to their necks in water.  In the shallower, bleated the sheep.  Patrick Dwyer had much reason  to be pleased. The country round  had been swept by thc fire as clean  as a sponge cleans a slate, and ho  had saved his stock and his wheat.  But Iieynell had less reason to bo  pleased. While hc had been fighting for another, his own had been  destroyed probably. It was not  much, perhaps, but it was his all.  Most of the fire-fighters dropped  where they stood. Iieynell staggered back to thc homestead and asked  Pattie to saddle themare.  As Dwyer shook llcynell's hand,  he shook his own head.  'Ye've done a"   lot for me,"  he  said,  "and I'm fearing that ye've  lost a lot."  Then appeared young Jim, lead-  rain had hit the gully soon enough  to ������������������_ve'"Wailaroo,  ' At last he peered out through th .  corner of his eye. Here at any rate  the bush fire,, was a thing of tho  past. The ash had become mud,  and the burning logs were nov  sodden. Was it in time? The rai..  compelled him to close his eyes  again.  Suddenly Jim,-on ahead, gave-, a  shout of triumph.  "Look!" he cried.  Iieynell ^looked, but lie could see  nothing to justify Jim's .xaltatio i.  Then, following the outstretched  hand, he noticed on top of thc tallest trees were tufts of feathery  leaves���������������������������still green.  His heart leapt within him. Her?,  at any rate, thc fire had begun tc  lose its force. Was it possible after  ali that the rain had come in t?h:.o  to save Wallaroo!  They -galloped on, and as th<:>  went, the leaves that the fire had  not reached grew lower and lo. cr.  At the bend in the gully the undergrowth was still all gone, and the  trees scorched and blackened lo a  height of ten feet.  When they turned thc comer,  Reynell's heart almost stood still.  Now he would know the worst. He  stood up in his stirrups lo sea if  his homestead and wheat still remained. Then he sank back in thc  saddle with a sob of rci' ?f.

Thc fierce  front had dried  them befo  the flame came.    Then old Dwyer.  wise    in    such    matters,    told hi.s  daughter  to    bring    blankets  and  buckets of water.  Now the fight really started. At  the edge of tho wheat paddock,  eight men against a bush-fire.  Eight men and two-women, for  both Pattie and her mother played  their part well, going to and fvo  with heavy buckets of "t.ater.  Suddenly on the lc'ft rose a lowing and tinkling.  "That's the f cattle." shouted  Dwyer. and he beat with renewed  energy.  Iieynell worked on for years, it  seemed. Then, as in'a dream be  heard a yelping and au occasional  bleat.  "That," he thought vaguely,  "must be the dogs bringing the  sheep.    I'm* glad  for old  Dwyer's  ing a large, unshod grey.  "Dad," he asked, "mayn't I go?"  "Go," said Dwyer.  Mrs. Dwyer came out to see them  off.  "Th' ould horse," she said,  "brought the doctor wheu Jim was  born, but he's not too ould to take  him with the man that helped us."  They set out, Jim in the lead,  Rcynell half-asleep behind.

Record of Annual Deficits and Surplus Complaints.  Then thc sun shot  other day broke over  land.  Iieynell sat thinking of his losses.  But fatigue is a."great anodyne, and  he dozed off into a semi-slumber.  Suddenly hc awakened���������������������������cold. It  had been day when lie slept, now  al1. was dark and lowering. Heavy  clouds hung barely abovo his head  as it socmed ; mutterings of thunder  forecast a storm. Ahead lightning  flashed, aud already a few beg drops  began to fall.  Jim pulled the old grey back.  "J say," he said, "there's a big  fall somewhere.

A big  fire, and then it rained as you might  pour out of a bucket."  That was tho last word said. The  rain struck them "as you might  pour out of a bucket" to quote  Jim.  At first it was not unpleasant.  The horses galloped faster in their  relief, while all around the smouldering bush hissed and spluttered.  But soon the riders closed their  eyes and pulled their hats over  di: to keep the horses' heads against  their faces. It was all they could  the storm.    And all the time Hoy-  Government railways aro having  rather a hard time of it in Europe.  The experiment of ownership and  apcration by the State, as far as  it has been attempted, not only  in Europe but elsewhere, seem'., to  have failed, and time and trial  more and more demonstrate its inevitable and inherent inefficiency.  Everywhere State operation is  criticized, and every year proves  it increasingly unsatisfactory to  everybody, except the politicians  and the functionaries. Thus in Belgium the financial ' situation has  grown so bad that the railway administration is now contemplating  w_hat_is practically_ impossible--a  substantial increase bot-"uT-rtfrglit-  and passenger rates. It is that or  bankruptcy for the scheme.  In Switzerland Governmeut exploitation regularly works an annual deficit. With less than 3,000  miles of lines thc budget for 1900  showed a deficit of about $925,000,  and in 1908, of about $1,200,000,  without taking account of the interest on thc bonded debt amounting  to $2<JO,000,000. Government operation in that compact little country, with "only about 3,000,000 of inhabitants and an area only aboutj  twice that of the. State of Massachusetts, has given such unfavorable results that the public are crying out against it, and it promises  to be a leading issue iiv the coming  electoral campaign.  In Japan State ownership has  proved so disastrous to the finances  of thc country that thc.Government  ie now looking to a syndicate of  foreign capitalists to help it out.  The statement is made that Government ownership there has imperiled the national finances, prevented railway improvements and  checked efficiency of the service.  In Italy the results of tho State  operation arc thus far notoriously  bad. The operation results, of  course, in an" annual deficit, and  although the traffic constantly increases, the receipts constantly diminish. During a recent, month's  operation, out of 1,000 passenger  trains. 480 were an hour or more  late, and there is constant and bitter complaint both from shippers  :ind passengers as' to the -unsatisfactory char^ter of the service.  In France the least satisfactory  operation is that of the State, and  in Germany things go from bad to  WILD WHITES.  DcsecuUunt.s of Runaway Convicts  in Australia.  The wild white men of the vast,  "Never Never Land" of Northern'  Australia,  to    whom    thc Rev. T.  Major is conducting a mission, are.  known as "white blackfellows," am  expression that,   while involving a  certain    contradiction      in    terms,'  nevertheless fits them to a nicety.  Some of these voluntary outcasts  from their kind    arc    present-day!  fugitives from justice.    Others are  the descendants of    runaway convicts who "took to thc bush" in tho  bad  old   days    of    transportation.  They live amongst the aborigines,  aping their  manners  and   customs  and subsisting on the same always  scanty  and    frequently   loathsome  food.      According to "Mr.   Major,  .hey"are exceedingly shy and difficult of approach, fleeing at the first  sign of a "tame" white man.  The mere idca'of i ndivdtials of our  race and color sinking to this low-  level is revolting. Yet the Australian white blackfcllow has'his counterpart in other quarters of the  globe, notably in the Guiana hinterland, where whole colonies of  white savages arc. known to be interspersed amongst the bush negroes  than whom no.more degraded race  exists anvwhere on earth. Like  thc wild whites of thc Never Never  Land, too, these unhappy people  descended from runaway . convicts,  mostly French.  Then, again, there are the small  isolated communities of white Indians, so called, which recent research has revealed living at.various points near thc head-waters of  thc Amazon. Ethnologists have  been completely puzzled as to their  origin. They possess thc Caucasian features, and in the dialects  they speak can bo traced manj;.  more or less archaic Spanish words  and phrases. - .  This has led to thc theory being  broached that they are the descendants of some of thc followers of  Orellana, the discoverer - of tho-  Amazoh, some hundreds ,of whom  are known to have deserted their  leader and wandered aside into the  pathless forests during the first  stage of his arduous and cver-me-  morable journey.   -'.���������������������������������������������������������������������������������.-."  WHAT THE TONGUE CAN TETX  3Lorc to Eyes Than to Ears, When  the Eyes are a Doctor's.  It is a fact that in every disease  there are a whole lot of things that  cannot be read from the patient's  tongue. . The classic wail ' "No  tongue can tell the agony of my  suffering" is of wider application  than "the patient uttering it is  aware. - ' '  It is equally patent, according to  American Medicine, that in every,  disease the tongue has a valuablo  story to tell and that the practician  who' ignores this story is in no  sense modern, scientific or practi-  cal._ In thejightjof day wc dojiot  cu riously examiTi^th .^twgtnrrw_=  keep an eye upon it. Not merely,  its aspect at thc outset of treatment  but its variations arc of prime significance.  The tongue findings are directly  and vitally connected with diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. The  mere presence of a coat on part  of the tongue may signify nothing.  A -heavy-coat-that -promptly fades -  on proper treatment and shows no  tendency to reappear is of less sig-|  nificance than the lightest coat that  sticks firmly or promptly returns.'  In a disease like tuberculosis, in'  which   results of  treatment  hinge  upon thc perfect intactness of tho  gastro-intcstinal functions, it is of  vastly higher importance to scrutinize' the tongue from day to dayj  than the affected lung.   In practico  wc aro too prone to disregard this  most obvious fact.

PLAGUE OP FLIES IN EGYPT.  Pests Reported to be Making Life  Not Worth Living.  Advices from Caliro recall the  eighth chapter of Exodus, for a correspondent writes that Egypt is at  present in thc throes -of a plague  of flies. Never, he says, have they  been such nuisances.  In the provinces these pests are  making life not worth living. Flies  are everywhere; nothing seem, to  keep them down. Old residents dc-  ciare that a plague of this description has not descended on Egypt  for very many years.  Tt is pretty serious, as flies are  tho propagators of many ills, especially ophthalmia, from which the  natives are suffering terribly.

Wilson's Fly Pads kill  the flics and thc disease germs,  too.  NOTHING TO SPEAK OF.  He wasn't the best behaved of  boys, and so, before he started out  for the party, his mother gave him  elaborate instructions as to the way  he should carry himself.  "Well, .-Willie, hew did "you get  on?" she asked on his return.  "Oh,  all  right,"ma."  "You "are quite- sure ypu didn't  do, any thing impolite?" \  ./.'.Well, no, ma���������������������������at least, nothing  to speak of." ���������������������������; .  .',  The mother's ' anxiety was  aroused. "  - "Ah, then, there was something  wrong. Now, tell me all about it,  Willie." .    -  "Oh, it wasn't much. You see,  I was trying to cut my meat when it  slipped"off the plate on' to the  floor."  "Oh, my dear boy, whatever did  you do?"  "I think I made it all right. I  just said, sort of carelessly, 'That's  always the way with tough meat,'  and went on with my dinner!"    -  GERMANY'S RAILWAY SYSTEM  Cost Low and Business Needs of the  Country Well Served.  Although the German railways,  unlike the French system, were not  conceived and built as a whole, and  perhaps because of their lack of  cohesion, which has enabled them  to avoid some of the faults of a  centralized system and secured to  the unimportant towns the benefit  ci an efficient service, the German-  system is to-day very complete and  responds very well to the business  necessities of the regions served.  Thanks to cheap labor, and to the  fact that the country for the most  part is level, so that it was possible  to avoid extraordinary outlay in  building, this lack of unity in the  construction of German railways  has not had the influence it might  have had on the cost of tho establishment. Between the Hook of  Holland and Berlin ' the railway  does not pass through a single tunnel (there is, in fact, not a single  railway tunnel in the' whole of"  North Germany), nor does it pass  through a- single deep_ cutting, -or  along a single high embankment.  Bridges and viaducts across rivers  are the only engineering works of  special importance that had to be  undertaken. n  It 1899 the total cost of all the  German lines, now amounting to  almost 50,000 kilometres, was stated  at 12,403,038,875 marks, or an average cost of no more than 253,615  marks a kilometre..  ������������������K-  $ 75 for sp-32 00  ti  125    "     90 00  u  65    "     50 00  a  16    "       9 50  ti  20    "      13 50  a  23    "      14 50  HIS CHOrCE.

We beg to draw our readers' attention to the'announcement in this  issue of the Ontario Veterinary College, which is now one of the colleges under the control of the Ontario Department of Agriculture,  and affiliated with the University  of Toronto. ' -  The close relation-of some of the  diseases of the lower animals to the  public health has recently aroused  a .demand for food inspection,  which, together with-the enactment  of Federal laws for the prevention  of the spread ��������������������������� of contagious diseases,- have both had a, marked influence in broadening -the .field of  Veterinary Science in this country;  and this in its turn has led to the  extension of one year to the former  College Course, and those who contemplate following" Veterinary Science as'their-life-work, will have the  benefit, of the advance"s which have  recently been made at the College.

THE POINT OF VIEW.  "This man is not insane," said  the lawyer, "and never has been.  To keep him in an asylum is a  blow, sir, directed against human  rights, an assault upon thc sacred  institution of liberty, an���������������������������"  "But did you not prove last week,  w'hen ho _was on trial for murder,  that he had been from birth a raving lunatic?" interposed the court.  The lawyer smiled in a superior  way. "Surely," he said, "your  honor would not have it believed  that this court is on the intellectual  plane of that jury."  A conceited young cleric once said  to his bishop: "Do you not think  that T may well feel flattered that  so great a crowd came to hear mc  preach?" No," was the answer:  "for twice as many would come to  sec you hanged."  THOROUGHLY   EQUIPPED  GIRLS' SCHOOL.
