Mrs. Geo. Bell is enjoying a visit  from her friend, Mrs. Dr. White, wife  of the Superintendent of Missions.  The home of Mr. and Mrs. J. C.  English' was gladdened last Wednesday week, by the advent of a' baby  boy.  Mr. and Mrs. ,W. H. Wright, and  their daughter, Mrs. McCormick, returned from the Seattle fair, Thursday last.  A.

H.  N. Hendricksoh has seen no less than  six of the bruin caste while canoeing  on the rivee. V--  In hii_ eloquent address at the  Armstrong Agricultural exhibition,  Hon. Price Ellison paid a richly deserved tribute to this locality, when  he remarked that from Armstrong  north to Salmon Arm, we have a  district that will beat the world for  raising winter apples.  Jack Crawford, well known to  Armstrong and neighborhood, died at  Victoria some days ago, and was  buried at Armstrong last Friday  from the Presbyterian church, Rev.  Mr. .Campbell, officiating. Typhoid  fever carried this popular young i man  off, three days after he was stricken.  The latest discovery in. the far  famed Peace River country,- is re-,  ported to be ten thousand acres of  rich, coal land^ which has-.been-located on the Peace river just across^  the border of British Columbia, by a  syndicate which includes several  prominent capitalists of Eastern  Canada.  ��������������������������� Work was started the past week on  the foundation for the Methodist  church and the f City flail. Contractors Russell and L'arl are not  losing any time in getting down to  work. They are hip^iy pleased with  the progress made thus far, and will  soon start the cement- work if the  weather continues fair.  Enderby did not enjoy the privilege of excursion rates to' the Westminster fair .this year. It "will be up  to the Board of Trade to enquire of  the railway officials. if they have  Enderby off the. map again. Shipments from Enderby, counting lumber and flour, - are heavier than from  any__town ,in-thfv valley   There is no way of improving a  'place so much as by encouraging  good merchants, good schools' and  good people to settle among you,  and this can not be done unless you  spend your money at home.  The Enderby Press has installed a  Monoline typesetting machine, and.  the citizens of that burgh should be  proud of its editor and accord him  the support that he deserves for his  enterprise.���������������������������Kelowna Courier.  When you buy any article of merchandise buy it \ f a reputable home  merchant, that '.he profit may remain to enrich the community. A  knock of any local institution or  product is a knock against yourself.  The people ol Grindrod are anxious  to see work started on the Grindrod  .bridge.;. It has taken several weeks  to get the materia on the ground,  but it is now ready, and the hope is  entertained that there will be no  further delay.  No, indeed; we have not discontinued the first-page feature of Walker's  Weekly. We are just waiting until  the pensive pup and the new baby get  better acquainted; then we shall presume to resume where .we. left off���������������������������it  will not be long. ' .        4/'  The Helping Hand Society, of Hull-  car, will give a Halloween Supper in;  the Hullcar-Deep Creek hall, on the  29th, from 6:30 to , 8:30. Everyone  who has enjoyed one of these Hullcar  suppers, knows what to look forward  to���������������������������and prepare for.  The Presbyterian ladies will hold a  Bazaar in the basement of the  church on November 18th. There v/ill  be a candy ' booth, tea booth, and  fancy booth, and an Okanagan Orange ' Grove; also a sale of fancy  baking.,. Any donations in the way of  fancy or useful articles or baking  will be gratefully accepted.  A meeting- of the Northern Okanagan Poultry ~ Association was held  last Saturday ��������������������������� in the ��������������������������� office of Dr.  Keith. The ' resignation of B. Brun-  dish as -.secretary, was received and  accepted with regret, and J, C. English, who so successfully handled the  office last year, was elected to fill  unexpired term. The prize-list committee was empowered to proceed to  prepare prize list and have it  printed.  Citizens who were fortunate enough  to be. at the station Monday and  Tuesday afternoon when the northbound train came in, enjoyed a rare  treat, furnished by the Vernon and  Armstrong bands, each of which  complimented the city with a selection of their prettiest music���������������������������and  these bands can put up some of the  best music written. They were on  their way to New ��������������������������� Westminster to  play at the Provincial Fair.  Harry Krebs came in from the territories on .Wednesday morning, and  will spend several weeks at the office  of the A. R. Rogers Lumber Co. The  sales of lumber in Mr. Krebs field, in  the past six months, have been so  great .that Mr. Krebs has been called  :home ��������������������������� to await the filling of the orders now in- hand, which are more  than- 100 carloads in excess of the  present day's shipments.  George Robinson had a narrow escape from serious injury if not death  last Monday. He was driving the  Walter   Robinson     delivery    wagon  across the. Mill-street crossing when  a long line of empties was hit by a  shunted box-car and driven down the  track some distance. There was no  brakeman in charge of the empties,  and they were "lifted" in the wink  of an- eye. . The j-wagon"-was._hit-by  the end car' and:totally demolished.  Mr. Robinson was cool]' enough to.  jump and unhook ' one' bf the- tugs,  which allowed the horse to be partly  freed from the tangle. The' wagon  was reduced to kindling wood. This  is one of many serious accidents that  have been narrowly averted at this  and the Cliff-street crossing. It is  only reasonable to expect the railway company to establish some system of warning at these busy roadways.  Last Thursday evening, in K. of P.  Hall, the music-loving people" of Enderby enjoyed a violin recital by the  boy violinist, Master Wilfrid L.  Small, assisted by Mr. Percy S.  Hook on the piano. Master Small is  a lad of 14. but he has the touch and  finish of a master. His execution is  marvelous; his conception of some of  the" master ''pieces; the feeling and  finish he puts into ' their rendition,  marks a great future for him. Of  course, he is yet' a boy,- and the  depth of soul that the masters "give,  and which can only come with years,  is lacking in .his Avbrk,,but_they" will,  .bm*_"_6v"this"lad,'t"andv'wtien they' "do  the world will be at his feet. Mr.  Hook's work on the piano was certainly that of an artist, especially  his execution of Liszt's Rhapsodie  Hongrois No. 12.  The two men who escaped from.the  Kamloops jail last week with Frank  Belmont, -were named Smith and  Hassard, committed for trial'for  theft. The manner of the' prisoners'  getaway, is described as follows:  When the guard made his rounds on  Saturday night, he discovered two of  the cell door open. The first one  was occupied by Hassard and Belmont, who had broken off the shelf  where food is passed in to the-prisoners, and one of them, presumably  Belmont, who had a long-arm, must  have reached around and unlocked  the door. How a key to do so came  into their possession is a mystery,  as_the_keyg to__the_ cells._are a_pet_  WHAT OUR POULTRYMEN-DO  culiar shape. These two prisoners  then proceeded to the" cell of Smith  and opened the door, another prisoner in that cell being asleep at "the  time. They then opened the sentry  box, crawled over the roof and the  wall of the exercise yard, and made  a clean getaway.  POST OFFICE   WINDOW   DISPLAY  Postmaster Harvey has added some  splendid samples of Northern Okanagan products to his window display  the past week. Mrs. Inch brought in  a very fine showing of Italian prunes,  blue Concord grapes, and corn wheat;  Mr. Attenborough who purchased  the Allan place last summer, some  pears and apples; F. W. Collin, Enderby, an exhibit of Cellini Ribston  Pippin, Bramley's Seedlings, and  Wesmer Dessert; Jas. Ellison, a display *of Yellow Danver onions; Thos.  Brash, some fine samples of Alexandria apples; J. A. Mohr, the same;  Geo. Folkard, a display of wheat;  Wm. Monk, Grindrod, cauliflower;  Robt. Jones, Enderby, some fine  Burbank potatoes; David Mowat,  Mammoth Globe beets; and J. F.  Johnson, an assortment of Wesmer's  Dessert and American Pippins, and  Hyslop and Peter's crab apples.  CHERISHED IN MEMORY  One who visited Enderby last fall  and enjoyed the beauties of our  glowing hills and valleys, writes: "I  would love to take a long walk down  the Mara road, and to see the birches  in their -golden glory and the old  cliff, bathed in the sunset glow. I  do so often think of those sunsets,  shedding that wonderful glory over  the cliff and the mountains and valley. I did enjoy it so much last fall  and I enjoy the memory of it now."  Mr. H. E. Waby, . president of the  Northern Okanagan Poultry^ Association, contributes a splendid article  for publication"-- on, . "The V Northern  OkanaganrJPoultry Association. as an.  Advertising' Medium." It is.vwith a  great deal of pleasure -that.we pub-;  lish the article.  , "We are on the eve of our'second  Annual Poultry Show," says Mr.  Waby, "and we hope for a show second to nothing in the Interior.'- Citizens of Enderby should feel proud- of  their poultry show, for it is being  highly spoken of all over the province. Indirectly it is becoming the  means of advertising the possibilities  for raising good poultry, "and the  effects are really farther-reaching  than some realise. Winnipeg has  seen prize poultry from Enderby and  the people of the western provinces  were enabled to see the .name- of En-'  derby printed in every paper of note  published in Winnipeg. Calgary also  saw two prize-winners, and again the  name of Enderby was - published  abroad���������������������������gratis. How many realise  that this means of advertising costs  Enderby,nothing more than the-support they give their w.nter poultry  show? Revelstoke, as. the, writer  knows,.is ringing with praise.for Enderby's "efforts and the successful isr-  sue'of a winter show,-carried through  where so little was known of really  high-class fancy poultry. 'Anyone  connected with this association, and  seeing the outcome of our exhibition  at Armstrong this year, and hearing  the words ol- praise accorded us by  the'Hon. Price Ellison, M.P.P., could  not help feel - proud of being a part  of the association.  "We are doing good work, and are  going to do better. We are going-to  \\iiA. ipiqAY J3}ui__   siq? Moqs ���������������������������_  3A������������������q  astonish many. And now comes the  report of the success of our Vice,-  President at the Seattle ��������������������������� World's  Fair. Mrs. Robert Waddell has  backed her faith in' the District in  which she lives and proved that she  is game in the interest of good poultry by getting birds which, captured  second and third at Seattle, where  there were from 6,000 to 8,000 birds  on���������������������������exhibition���������������������������more than _.twice_as  many as are shown' at ��������������������������� Madison  Square, New York, or the Ontario at  Guelph. I for one, feel pleased to  think that such birds are coming ".to  Enderby, and my only regret is that  they are not of the same breed as  our own, so that we could purchase  stock or eggs of such quality, close at  home. !  "Citizens of Enderby, back your  your poultry show! See it through!  The-poultrymen are doing-good work,  but we are only in the,initial stages.  This isn't a begging letter, but we  are in needfof a little money and an  array of special prizes. Expenses in  connection with your winter show  have been kept down until' it seems  almost incredible that the show can  have reached its present stage with  so little cost to those interested."  TRINITY VALLEY BRIDGE  Some time   ago    when    it-was re-_  pcrted that the government engineer  had gone over the ground and found  .that_ the .construction of a bridge to  "connect the proposed. Trinity. Valley.-;;  road with ."the ���������������������������.M apie - Lake road' to''"'  Enderby would cost in the neighborhood' of   $8,500,  "settlers   who .have  travelled every   foot   of   the-ground  and know the country well, ridiculed  the-statement, and   some'even have"  gone so far as   to   say. that -the - en- -  gineer was. never   on the   ground-of  the bridge proposed   by the settlers.  They declare, further, that $1,500 at  the outside would" build   the bridge,  ���������������������������  and several of them are prepared at,  any time to take the government engineer or anyone else to the proposed  bridge site.   The proposed site is in  the northwest quarter of Section 23  range-18,    near   the   west line. -Thev  river   banks   are - high   and   no   approaches will be necessary.   The river  current at this   point is not strong, '  the" water   not   very   deep,    and the  distance-from bank to bank not more  than 100 yards across.-  HIGH-CLASS POULTRY-  ENDERBY APPLES FOR LONDON  ENDERBY PUDLIC SCHOOL  96;  90;  89;  88;  86;  Senior Division���������������������������A written examination in geography was held last  Monday, and the following list shows  the respective percentages obtained  by the pupils named:  Senior Class���������������������������Patrick    Mowat,  Vivian Nichol, 92; Jasper Mowat,  Arthur Teece, 89; Edith Teece,  Amy Bogart, 89; Fred Johnson,  Harold Bass, 86;- Sylvia Black,  Allen Dunwoodie, 85; Thomas McKay  84; Dorcas Brash, 83; Oliver Ruttan,  80; John McMahon, 74; Frank Pearson, 72; Ida Robinson, 70; Horace  Marwood, 61.

Geo.. R. Lawes' finished last night-  the packing of thirty boxes of fancy  winter apples to be shipped to-day  with the Provincial Government exhibit to be made in all the' big fairs  in the   Homeland.   This    is without  do_ubt_the  Jines't display of locally-  grown fruit-that ever has Deen se~nt^  from Enderby, and is a credit to Mr.  Lawes; who has done "all the packing,  and the few growers who have assisted him' iii getting such a splendid  display together.. Next week we hope  to; be able to give the names of all  who furnished fruit for the exhibit,  and also the names of the various  varieties.  .POLICE _COURT  In the Police Court on Monday last  before Magistrate Rosoman, Emil  Willen, a Finlander, was charged by  Provincial Constable Gardom with  having stolen a revolver, the property of Mr. McGillivray, from a room  in the Enderby Hotel. Willen, after  the theft, had wandered into a camp  at Mabel Lake where the owner of  the revolver happened to be, and was  promptly arrested, brought to town,  by Special Constable Cole, and  lodged in the lockup. Prisoner  pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to  six months' imprisonment, with hard  labor. '   The first step in the direction of  the building up of a purely Canadian  navy has been taken by the appointment of two officers, who will advise  and instruct Canadians in respect to  the putting into commission of training ships on which the fighters of the  future will be developed. These officers are Commander J. D. D. Stewart, who will h^e the chief of staff,  and P. J. Ling, staff paymaster of ���������������������������  the royal navy. These officers will  at once take up the preliminary work  in connection with the bringing into  existence of a navy.   ' Good bread, 4 loaves for 25c.

Were Once Reckoned Among Fighting Strength.  From the nature of things women  soldiers can only be found as a class  among barbarians���������������������������up to this time  at any rate. The Dahomey Amazons,  made a poor show against the  French, but Barton had been much  impressed with them forty years  earlier���������������������������and he was a judge. The  discipline was terribly severe in his  time; he did not doubt they were  very^ formidable troops. Relaxation  01 discipline ruined them, says the  Pall Mall  Gazette.  The mythica-1 Amazons claim a  word, since Prof. Sayeo adduced  such striking evidence to suggest  that they were tho warrior priestesses of Hittitc invaders. Of the  American Amazons it may be recalled that Humboldt thought the legend not impossible; and he had  studied the original records. Very  few who have written on the subject are thus qualified probably,  but Mr. Alfred Wallace has shown  us lately that Spruce, the great  botanist, looked into the evidence  carefully and formed a strong opinion that it was trustworthy.  Much more interesting  are    the  shield   maidens   of    the    Vikings.  Would that wc knew more    about  them   personally.     Thc   historical  sagas allude to them, but always,  so far as I remember, iu a matter  of fact  way, as to male personages.  One of the very    grandest    poetic  sagas is that of the Shield   Maiden  Hervor, but even    this   takes   for  granted nearly everything we particularly want to know.    She dressed  as a man and joined the   Vikings.  Presently she gained tho command  MONTREAL AND QUEBEC.  A veritable edition de luxe among  railroad pamphlets has been issued  ly the Grand Trunk Railway System to proclaim amongst tourists,  the, glories of the cities of Mont~  real and Quebec.   The brochure is  beautifully printed    and generally  arranged  in   the    artistic  style of  earlier days,  when the ornamentation of- a volume was regarded as  au important incident to    its presentation of reading matter.   It is  also  very  well  written,   and  gives  an interesting   description    of the  two most interesting cities in Canada,   with  many illustrations from  photographs.

FRENCH WOMEN ECONOMICAL  Economizing ia a real passion  with all French persons, and they  carry the idea into their wardrobe  .as well as into other departments  of their houses. As every one  knows, there is no neater-looking  or better-dressed woman in the  world than a French woman, and  jet extravagance finds-no place in  her toilette. It is the way a dress  is kept when not in service, and it  is the way a dress is put on, too,  that tells tho tale.

It's a pity a man can pu'  .er on his conscience when  Jhi m.  v' __  KM  of her party���������������������������and the story-opens,  true in the main probably.  The circumstantial account of the  battle of Bravoll bet-ween Sigurd of  Denmark and Harold Hilditoun of  .Norway mentions several shield  maidens who commanded troops.  Ono -even bore Harald's standard.  All fought like heroes, or demons,  and I..think all died on tiie field ; but  it seems that they were only women  who rose to command by daring and  military genius. Is there any authority for the legends of Viking  bands wholly feminine .  The old li _ah "Book of   Lccan"  says casually "'for men and women  went alike to battle in those days" ;  and the record of tribal obligations  called- "Hosting"  reckoned women  among     thc      fighting     strength.  Moreover, thc life of Abbot Adam-  nan of lona tells how he,  hearing  of this dreadful practice,  went    to  Ireland,   called    an    assembly " of  chiefs  and   bishops  and  persuaded  them to pass a k-.,-/,  still    extant,  entitled "Lex innocentium," which  forgade the summoning of women to  I war.

"I thought I had told you to cease  al! correspondence with that  (man?" said old Skipper Master-  ton to his daughter, as he threw  down on the breakfast-table a let-  ier the postman had just handed  in.  "I cannot help Captain West-  wood's writing to me," she replied. "I have kept my promise  not to write to him without your  consent, but I am sorry I ever gave  it"  Marion Masterton put the letter  1. her pocket unread, for her father was in irritable mood, one,  unfortunately for her, not unusual  with him. Sho satisfied herself,  however, as to the postmark, Montreal, the port for which the Tempest had sailed some weeks previous-  ly.  "He's afc Montreal?" asked her  father, inquiringly, although he  knew well enough, as the arrival  of the ship had long since been telegraphed to the firm of which he  was managing'director.. Thisl.news  he had been careful to keep-to. himself. His daughter's intefestin  the young commander of the Tempest did not pleas������������������ Him.  "Why are you, not reading your  letter?" he asked; . .    .'..:���������������������������-���������������������������-  "There will be plenty of time for  that, since you won't allow me to  answer it."  "And there will be plenty of time  foi him to write the next. It's tho  last time he takes the Tempest to  America."  "The last, time? Whatever do  you mean, father?"  "Exactly what I say. I mean to  get rid of him as soon as he has  brought her back to Liverpool: If  he will persist in writing to you,  he will find himself without a  ���������������������������hip."  The girl gazed at her father with  wide-eyed ^astonishment, akin to  consternation. She had hoped,  _and had waited, for his rancor to  abate, but now it blazed forth  fiercer than ever.  - "I have sworn," he said, as he  brought down his clenched fist on  ihe table with a -force that made  the things standing on it leap and  utaake, "that ^ my daughter shall  not marry into John Westwood's  family, and I shall keep my oath."  Argument or entreaty his daughter _'knew was useless, and she  wisely refrained. Her father  etrode out, grim, angry, and relentless, and Marion was left alone  to her thoughts and to the, reading of the letter, the innocent cause  of the outburst. Its contents were  pleasing, as the mantling flush on  her cheek evinced. The writer had  apparently no premonition of the  fate awaiting him at the end of the  voyage. He anticipated the time  when her father's purpose would  change, and pictured a future of  happiness for all concerned, witn  an increased measure for Marion  and himself.      -  selves with his family, Marion  was a foolish girl to have anything  to say to young Westwood, and  all three would have to be taught  submission. '   ,  II.  morning,  Captain  West-  Meanwhile, Skipper Masterton  bad his own plans-ready laid, and  ict out' to put them into execution.  He was only part-owner of the  Tempest to the extent of half, or,  <n the language of the mercantile  marine, thirty-two sixty-fourths.  Skipper Westwood, his life-long  friend until lately, and father .of  the young captain of .the barque,  held the other shares, with-a corresponding interest in thc management. It was to this fact that he  owed his appointment to thc command and to its retention after tho  friendship between the two older  men had ceased.  Masterton's scheme  was simply  to buy the other's shares.    Jn all  likelihood "Westwood  would refuse  to  sell,   knowing    how    much  his  eon's position depended upon his  own half-ownership.    At one time  most''.of the ships that hailed from  .he  little port    of    St.   Regulus,  6ome eight or,nine in all, had been  owned in  similar fashion.    Provident old  master-mariners had invested in this    way the   fruits of  many years' thrift, and now West-  wood was the last survivor.      All  the others had been bought out by  Masterton, and at a figure which  ������������������as far from recouping them. But  they had to sell, or share with their  ico-owner: in the payment of the  heavy bills for   repairs in foreign  ports, which unaccountably figured  largely   during    Masterton's joint  management, and as unaccountably  ceased when he became sole owner.  By such means he had become supreme in the little port.    Opposition vto him had been fraught with  . ruin to more than one, and his in-  jfluence  was    now    unquestioned.  Only Westwood and his son refused to knuckle under, and had the  impudence to think of allying them-  "Good  wood!"  "Good morning. Captain Master-  ten I" .  There was no inquiry concerning  each other's health. Matters had  been getting strained lately, and all  affectation of thc continuance of the  old-time friendship had been gradually dropped. But coasting skippers, whethor active or retired, are  always "captain" to one onther  and to their female relatives.  "That's bad news from Montreal,"  said Masterton, at last.  "Yes; more to pay for repairs  than the whole freight for the double voyage. I wish you had seen  me about it before sending the  oiders."  "Well, you weren't at home when  I called, and I had to telegraph  at once."  "I can't understand it at all.  Your own ships are not so expensive, I reckon?"  "No; you see, since I've had  them in hand they've always been  well-found."  There was a sneer in this which  the other,was quick to note, witn,  the implied inenuhdo.  - "The Tempest ought to be .well-  found enough,- - considering what  she's costing," he contented himself with saying.  "I've been giving things the most  fcareful consideration," said Masterton, -steadily regarding the opposite wall, out of the line of West-  wood's glance, "and I've made up  my mind to sell my share."  ; The other started, though he had  been expecting such an announcement for some time. He himself  had no chance of raising the money  to purchase the offered share. It  was - hopeless, too, to - look for a  partner to take Masterton's place.  That well-to-do owner would regard as his mortal enemy anyone  who came between him and the success of his chemes, and no one in  the neighborhood would risk such  hostility,' Westwood well knew. He  also knew the process usual in such  circumstances. It was not the first  (time that Masterton. had become  possessed of a whole ship by putting pressure upon a partner.   -  "I am afraid "  be began: to  say, and then he checked himself.  .Why give himself away to Master-  ton? "Well, it's rather hurried  U this,", he resumed, "but if you  have made up your mind to sell 1  suppose it will be best for frie to  buy.   What's the figure?"   .  The. conversation was going exactly as the other had "calculated.  Westwood could not possibly buy,  he knew. There was only one alternative���������������������������he would have to , sell,  and the determination of the price  would lie with Masterton himself.  "I have been thinking the figure  over," he replied, "and, as the  barque is the worse of being built  too long ago, and bills for repairs  grow he*vier every year, I will let  you ha'*e her a good bargain���������������������������say,  four thousand for my share."  "That's a very reasonable figure,  indeed,"  said  Westwood,  in vain  seeking to hide his real thoughts  from h"is^wily^antagbnisit.  "Let me'see.    She cost thirteen  thousand a few years ago. I'm  making you, in fact, a present of  a thousand at least, allowing for  depreciation."  "More than that, Captain Masterton. more than that. I am sure  it's very generous of you. I have  always put my own sharo at six  thousand myself."- -     .   ..      "One likes to do an old friend a  good turn. When will you have the  'money ready?"  It was this question that West-  wood had been anticipating and  planning to meet. His position  was, as hc well realized, absolutely hopeloss. He would have to sell  to his partner at a loss of two thousand at least. Ho had mortgaged  his share for four thousand some  years previously. The proposed  transaction would swallow up all  he was possessed of.  "I would like to consult with  my son," he replied at length.   It  would at /east stave off the evil  .day.   . '  "Very well; say the end of next  month. I'm anxious to be done with  the barque, once for all. The last  day of next month, then. She may  he lost by then, and you ���������������������������would get  the insurance," he said as. he went  OUt.   ' ���������������������������'���������������������������';'  "You forget that my son- commands her!"  Masterton chuckled . as/ he went  home. "If she were lost, with young  Westwood on board, it would be  the best thing that could happen.  It would bring Marion to her senses. She will have to bo brought  to them, 'whether or no,' as tne  carrier said.  III.  The first thing that Skipper West-  wood did when his partner had gone  was to write to his son at Montreal, to apprise him of-the impending stroke of  fortune,   or  rather  fate.   He knew that it would be a  heavy blow to the young man. The  times were not propitious for the  masters of sailing ships. The windjammers,  as they are called,  are  a doomed racn.   Steam has ousted  them from the regular and  best-  paying routes;    and    officers who  lose their    berths    have  to begin  again, often at the lowest rung of  the ladder, on board an ocean liner,  if lucky���������������������������if  unfortunate,   on  board of a tramp  steamer.    The  prospect would not commend itself  to young Westwood, with his ambit-ions, and, above   all,  with      his  hopes of    soon    marrying Marion  Masterton.    That step would have  to be   postponed   for   many   long  years, and perhaps the engagement  would be  finally  broken off.    AH  this passed    through  Westwood's  mind when he had finished the letter and was left to the contemplation of a prospect dreary in the  extreme.    The ship, thanks to his  son's energetic captaincy, had been  paying well; now, with the change  of owners,  his    son would be set  adrift and his own income reduced  to- zero.   And there seemed no way  out of the difficulty.  Returning from posting the fatal  letter���������������������������the harbinger- of ruined  hopes���������������������������he met Marion Masterton.  He would.have passed her unnoticed, so buried was he in his sorrowful anticipations.  "Are yougetting too, proud to recognize an old friend now?"..she  asked, playfully'.  "I've just been sending bad news  to Montreal," he said. "Bad for  Harry and for us all���������������������������except perhaps,  your father." .  "There's nothing wrong with" the  Tempest?" she said,turning pale.  "I have just been writing to Harry.    This is' the letter."  "Has your father not told you  anything about the barque lately?"  "He never has much -to say to  me about it now, but I have been  guessing that something was going  wrong."  "Well, you are bound to hear in  a week or two from Harry, if your  father does .not tell you himself. -  "Oh, Mr. Westwood, won't you  tell me���������������������������and the very worst? I  am. strong and-can-bear, it. Who  knows but I may be able to help  ' It was not,in any hope of this that  Westwood told his story. He knew  the girl's imagination would run  riot in anticipation of evil, perhaps far in excess of the actual circumstances, and to spare her  groundless pain he told her all he  knew.  "I feared it was something  worse," sho said. "It was so good  of you to tell me. I must put a  postscript to Harry's letter���������������������������just  a line to cheer him," she said, as  she tore open the letter she was  carrying. " "I'll get pen and ink at  the"post-oflice."  And then she hurried away, with  a cheery good-bye tor the sad old  man.  "Girls, the best of them, are  quite helpless in business matters,"  he said to himself. "I am sure she  hasn't the ghost-I"of an idea how serious things are. A line to Harry  won't stop the sale of the Tempest."  dear.   It was between six thousand j these are to lend the   money tof  and seven thousand pounds when  your mother died, fifteen years'ago,  and has been in your father's hands  since then, at good interest I may  add, and, of course, on good trustee security. I am co-trustee, you  know, and therefore responsible for  the security's being good."  "And when is it payable to me?  Can I draw upon it, say, in a  month's time?" a  "That depends upon your mother's will. I have it there in that  tin box on which you see 'Mrs.  JVlarion Masterton' in white letters."  Rising from his chair he had soon  possessed himself of the will. He  read it in a half-whisper to himself, while the girl strained her  cars only to catch words here and  there that were Greek to her.  "Well, Mr. Robertson ." she said  at last, for he was sitting deep in  thought.  "It's all right, my "dear," he rer,  plied; "it!s your very own money,  of that there's no doubt. How  much there is now I can't say un-  ti' I look over the joint trustees'  aecount. Quite ten thousand, I  should say, at least."  Marion heaved a sigh of relief.  It was a larger sum than her present purpose rendered necessary.  "And when can I have it?"  "Immediately; that is to-say, in  a few days', time.    We shall have  to sell out the shares in which it is  in-vested, but that won't take long."  "Then I may count upon getting  it before the end of the month?"  "Certainly." .-  Marion rose to go, very, happy in  her mind. .   .  "One moment," said the lawyer.  "I've forgotten what your age is.  Over twenty-one, I know."  "Then you know wrong.   I'm not  twenty yct-^-not for two months."  "Oh, dear,  what a pity!"  "Pity   to     be     under   twenty?  Wouldn't you like to be that yourself?"  "That's not the question, my  dear young lady. This money Js  yours on the day you are twenty-  one, and not before. Power of  anticipation is debarred."  ,. "Then it's too late. Whatever  am I to do?"  The lawyer again glanced oyer  the will. The girl's pleasure, so  soon followed by the keenest disappointment, affected him deeply,  hardened business man though.he  was.-.  He read aloud,- "to be paid to  her ...when she shall have attained  the age of twenty-one years, if not  previously married, in which case  it shall be paid to her on her marriage-day." ~  "I am afraid there's no help for  " he said, kindly.  Mr. Westwood, and, on his refusal,)  to purchase outright. Here is ������������������'  diaft for four thousand pounds aa  from Mr. Westwood. He and I will  settle matters between ua afterwards.

"Yes, yes, that's all right, of  course. My client's name, I learn  from the wedding-bells you havo  just heard, is Mrs. Marion West-  wood, formerly Masterton."  "And me never to know anythi ig  about it!" stormed the old skip-,  per, starting to his feet. "My own  daughter!"  "It was your own doing.

With her letter to her lover  safely dispatehed, Miss Masterton  was now free to give anxious  thought to the business considerations involved in the news she had  just acquired from old Mr. West-  wood.  "I must see Mr. Robertson at  once," sho said to herself, "i  must have my lawyer's advice before I do anything in the matter."  Mr. Robertson was joint trustee, along with her father, of the  modest fortune left her by her mother, who had died many years before. He was a "writer," as solicitors are termed in that part of  the country, and was also manager  or agent of the local branch of the  National Bank of Scotland^ It is  not unusual for the functions of  writer and agent to be combineo  in the person of one worthy individual. .This fact was destined to  prove useful in .the sequel.  "I have called, Mr. Robertson,'  she said, without further preliminary, for they were old friends ane  he had known her all her life���������������������������"1  have called to consult you."  "As banker or as solicitor?" he  asked, with a twinkle, for gossip  had been busy about matters concerning her father and the two  Westwoods, as well as with her own  immediate share.  "Well,, about both?" she replied.  "You are my trustee, are you  not?"  "I have   that    honor,  my dear  young lady,  along with  your  father."  J'And can I get my money at any  time I want it, and how much is  it?"

Emerson says: "Everything in  ture has its price. The law of  ture is,���������������������������if you want anything,  the price and take it."  We frequently hear men remark, in  all seriousness, too, that they are  going to wait and make sure that  Enderby will become a big, growing  city before they build or purchase  property. This is not unusual. In  all cities, and under all flags we may  find men of thc same type. And  while they wait the cities are made and  outstrip them, and when they would  buy they cannot. Why, bless your  soul, man, cities are made; they do  not GROW. And men have to risk  their money, labor hard, venture big,  and be strong on confidence to make  them. When these men finally awaken to the fact that Enderby has become a city���������������������������a big city, or thc making of a big city���������������������������they will not be in  a position to buy or to build, for  they will be outdistanced by the tmen  who have had confidence and were  not afraid.  though still the  wilds.  original son of the  BUILD BETTER ROADS  Major James Shepherd, in his talk  to an Enderby audience last Wednesday   evening,   sounded   the   warning  that 6hould be   heeded   by all municipalities which pretend to build for  the future.   He   presented    the question from a broad view point, and in  a spirit, of the   truest   optimism.   A  government    trunk   road   from   Calgary to the coast, he said, was one  of the sure things of the future, and  it will pass  ..through   the Okanagan  Valley in its course.   Over this road  hundreds of auto   parties will travel  on business and pleasure.   This trunk  road    is   already   demanded   by the  phenomenal   prosperity   of" the territories and British Columbia,, and the  demand must" be met.   Of course, the  provincial governments will build the  road and maintain it, through unincorporated   territory,    but that portion running through    municipalities  and cities will have to be kept up by  the local   governments.   It   is   with  the object of   acquainting   the cities  and municipalities with what will be  expected of them   that   Major Shepherd is making the trip through the  Okanagan and giving his Good Roads  lecture.   Speaking   of   Enderby   and  the   street . improvements    we   have  made, this summer,. he complimented  the city on the showing made, but at  the same time warned the local administration that money was wasted  in the work, and he cautioned us not  to spend any more money in loosely  graded streets.   The age of the auto  is here, and when the proposed trunk  road from   Calgary   to the Coast is  opened,   we   shall   have   hundreds of  the rapid-moving benzine buggies on  our streets daily, <v and   loosely-made  streets will be tossed to the housetops.   It   were    better,   he   said, to  macadamize one block of one street  each year, if we did not feel able to  do more, than   to   lay    out   with a  dusty, loose   surface   any number of  streets that would   have to be used  for fast travel.  FALL ELECTION PROBABLE  Hon. Premier McBride has given it  out that nn election this fall or winter is now quite probable. It is the  intention'-of the government to go to  the country for its approval of the  railway policy the government is on  the eve of adopting. This, it would  seem, is the only reason why^tta  McBride^overnhl^f^fi^lcl^feenT  were necessary to appeal to the electors. Certainly, no government that  the province has had in recent years  has given such entire satisfaction.  The Vernon News puts it nicely when  it says: "The people of this province  irrespective of party, must have  made up their minds that an appeal  to the country only means the return  of the present administration with an  increase^ majgrity^Nolscnsibleiman,  who is. .at all acquaiuted with existing conditions can for a moment be  in doubt on this point. The reasons  for this state of affairs lie close to  the surface. They may be summed  up in two words���������������������������good government.  The administration of the affairs of  the province under Premier McBride  has been such ns to win the approval  and confidence of the people, and to  wring from his political opponents a  reluctant admission that his course  has given little or no cause for hostile criticism. To make a change under such conditions would bo the  height of folly, particularly as, there  is no real issue of any importance  dividing the two political parties  that has not been pronounced upon  in the most unmistakable manner by  the electors."  HARD PROBLEM TO  SOLVE  The Indians of British Columbia  are again on the warpath, says the  Vancouver Province. Not the warpath of violence, blood and scalps  which from time immemorial the unfettered aborigine has been wont to  take when things were not to bis  liking���������������������������but the belligerent highway  of legality and constitutionality  which   more   befits   the   enlightened  The native subjects of King Edward in British Columbia���������������������������29 of them  ���������������������������representing a score of tribes scattered all over the Province���������������������������have  subscribed to a declaration that it is  their "conviction that the Indian  tribes of British Columbia are entitled to an interest In all the lands of  the province, excepting only some  small portions of Vancouver Island,  which were surrendered before confederation,"  They have also put down in black  and white���������������������������per typewriter���������������������������on paper  ���������������������������their determination "to maintain  with moderation and firmness the independent stand which has been taken  in defence of these rights."  It is declared by the Indians that  the title they are asserting was recognized and guaranteed by a proclamation which they assert was issued  by King George III. in 1763, and was  subsequently recognized both by the  parliament of Great Britain and by  the legislature of the colony of Vancouver Island. This title, they assert, has been ignored and denied by  the Province of British Columbia.  The Indians close their proclamation with the expression of the hope  that his majesty the King will carry  the issue before the law lords of the  privy council at an early date so  that they may secure the decision in  their favor which they confident,y  look forward to. They also caution  all Indians against using violence in  the assertion of their rights.  This Indian question is becoming  one of more than casual interest to  British Columbia. It will one day  demand action on the part of the dominion , government. That the Indians believe they have prior rights  which the white man must respect is  apparent from this proclamation referred to above, and we may expect  to see their claims pressed for a  hearing. It will be well for all concerned when the question is brought  forward, for perhaps then the question of Indian reserves will be investigated.  The Keremeos Chronicle says: "The  short and simple   annals    of the Id-  dians   of   Canada   vary   little  from  year to year.   Hedged in on their reserves, protected by special laws, and  I divided by their   tribal .system from  I the main   currents   of   political and  economic life, they may be likened to  island    dwellers    in   a   restless   sea.  Theoretically    they   are supposed to  be in training so that in the fulness  of time they may "paddle their own  canoe."    Actually,    the    system    of  tutelage    under    which they live appears to have reached or passed the  limit   of   its    usefulness.   If the red  man is to thrive and take his place  as an integral part of the body politic, the time is ripe to loosen the  bonds of. his wardship and introduce  him to the duties and responsibilities  of citizenship.   A suggestion to this  effect is made by Frank Pedley, deputy Superintendent General of Indian  Affairs:   'It seems   strange, and cannot    be   without    significance,    with  what rare    exceptions,    Indian communities have refused to avail themselves of   the   provisions   of the advancement part    of   the Indian Act,  designed as a stepping stone to municipal government.     It is not that  the Indians lack   the   spirit of independence nor   the    desire to conduct  their own affairs, but that they fail  to recognize the benefits likely to accrue from the adoption of the white  man's methods.   This,   without question, largely results from the limitation of interests    and ambitions imposed by the segregation of existence  upon reserves, and as a natural consequence    the    somewhat    ill-defined  craving of the Indians for progress,  rather seeks scope in the direction of  an effort to   return   to the independence of the old tribal form of gov-  _Lr_!_n_J_t������������������^JL_Lesire-=^which^keeps^crop--  ping up afresh amongst communities  possessed of most life and character,  and which   is    often    too hastily assumed to be a mark of retrogression  on their part.   How this misdirected  energy is to be    guided   into proper  channels,    how    the   reserve-imposed  limitation of interest is to be broken  down,    seems   a    hard   problem    to  solve; but it appears clear that one  main factor will be found in simpli-  fying-measures-for enfranchisement;"  For Sale.���������������������������A number of yearling  steers, some 2-year-old heifers (half  Red Pole stock) and a few milch  cows.

The authorities would have had 'to secure a.  search warrant to search the house,  and the prisoner when he understood  this, told, them where they could find  the letters without trouble.  .

I  1.1  I LARGEST 'CONDERT HALL  WHERE   12.000    PEOPLE     CAN  LISTED  TO  SINGERS.  Royal Albert Hull, London, is the  Largest Concert Hall in  thc World.  Besides being the grandest saloon  in Europe, tho .Royal Albert Hall  rightly lays claim, to be tho largest  concert-hall in the world. Tho  building was commenced in 18G7,  took fourteen years to complete,  And cost exactly $1,000,000.  Tlie hall can afford accommodation for between 10,000 and 11,000,  but on tho occasion of Sims Reeve's  farewell concert 12,200 persons  found accommodation under the  hugo glass roof. This number included 5,5?00 wlio were allowed to  walk about the grand promenade  near the roof. This number has  since, been declared to be the danger limit, and not more than 3,000  are now permitted on the promenade.  SEATS FOR 999 YEARS.  The Albert flail was erected from  part of the profits of tho famous  1851 Exhibition, the rest of tho  money being raised by subscription. It was arranged that every  subscriber of $500 should be entitled to a private seat, which belongs  to the subscriber until thc lease  of 939 years is completed.        For  PUBLIC PERFECTLY SAFE.  Thero is very little danger of  fire at the Albert Hall, but should  such a disaster occur every facility  has been arranged to- cope with it.  Two firemen aro on the staff, the  whole of which- form an amateur  fire brigade, being regularly trained  bj a- permanent fire superintendent; and twenty-six hydrants could  pour a laigo volume uf water on thc  scone-of thc conflagration in a few  minutes, and as there aro twenty-  six exits an audience of 10.000 can  pass inlo iho street, inside four  minutes. .Besides which it is estimated that the entire audience  could be accommodated in thc corridors., staircases, and entrances.���������������������������  London Tit-Bits.  HOW BEES FIND HIVE.  31,000 they had tho right to a pair  of scats; ..2,500, five stalls or a box  of five scats; and for $5,000, a  grand-tier box holding ten. Tho  late Queen Victoria subscribed  $(10,000, and had two grand-tier  boxes which were converted into  one. This is now the Royal box.  The King, when Prince of Wales,  also bought a grand-tier box, which  is now the private property of the  Prince of Wales.  $2,500 FOR A BOX.  There are about 1,300 of these  private scats, and thc owners can  do just what they like with them���������������������������  nso them, lend them t. their friends  or sell them���������������������������but they are liable,  however, t-o an annual scat rate not  exceeding $10 for upkeep.. The  owners can only be excluded at private meetings where the public are  not admitted by payment.  These seats aro not regarded as  au investment,, although they are  f l equcntly in the market for salo.  The stalls may realize anything  from $175 to $250 each. The late  Duke of Edinburgh's box on tho  grand tier fetched  $2,250.  ENGAGING THE HALL.  The charge for engaging tho  Royal Albert Hall for a concert,  afternoon or evening, is $375, inclusive of all expenses such as  lighting, attendants, sale of tickets, police, and a staff of fifty gentlemen who act as honorary stewards. These stewards arc business  gentlemen, and include barristers,  solicitors, stockbrokers, bankers,  etc., who do the work simply for  the love of tho thing. Tho sum  mentioned, however, docs not include the use of the freehold seats  ^tnenlio n cd=-p ns.. ion sl-y- ���������������������������1 fc=^ e-v er-y  eeat is required for a private mooting thc rent would be $750.  The big organ is known as Lhe  second largest in the world. It has  live manuals and 10,500 pipes, some  40 feel long and 2 feet in diameter,  and some of the size only of a  lit raw. It also has four keyboards  und 120 stops. Jt is blown by wind  supplied by (wo engines of i'l h.p.  each. The hall and offices arc heated by steam, and thero aro over  twenty-four miles of hot-water  pipes in the building.  LIGHTING Tl.il. ALBERT HALL.  WHAT IS A "DREADNOUGHT*"  Has Alnde all   Other War Vessels  Obsolete.  The vessel which has given her  namo to- tlio modern type of heavily-  armed battleship ..as launched in  1906, aud all older types were at  once regarded as, in a sense, obsolete. Compared with tho ships of  the King Edward class, she carries  ten 12-inch quick-firing guns, as  against four of tho same calibre  aud four 9.2-inch. Eight of these  ean be brought t-o bear on a hostile  vessel in one broadside, and six  ahead or astern. Sho is thus able  t-o pour such a constant stream of  armour-piercing shclli. upon an opponent as would probably sink or  disable her in a very few minutes.  Moreover, her guns havo an effective range of over twelve miles.  The Dreadnought is fitted with  turbine engines, giving her a speed  of 21 knots, the King Edward class  steaming 1S% knots. The four  cruiser-battleships of the Invincible  class, however, havo a speed of 25  knots; and it will be- remembered  that last August the Indomitable,  with the Prince of Wales on board,  actually equalled the record of tbe  Maurelania by steaming from land  to land (Belleisle to thc Fastnets)  in sixty-seven hours, an average of  25.13 knots per hour! The newer  .Dreadnoughts are to have a speed  of. 22 knots.  The displacement, of tho largest'  vessel of this class, tho Foiidroy-  ant (now building), is 20,000 tons,  as against- tho Dreadnought's 17,-  900 and tho King Edward VII.'s  10,500.  As the advent of these monster  battleships has rendered earlier  types obsolescent, "so thc "mystery" ship Invincible and her sisters have consigned armored cruisers of earlier date, such as the  Minotaur (which was only built  three years ago), to a metaphorical  scrap-heap! Ships of the Invincible class would probably, in time  o? war, be employed as "cruiscr-  Latlleships," for their speed wouid  enable them to head off the enemy's vessels and compel them to  offer fight, whilst "their weight of  motal (eight 12-inch guns) would  account for anything but a Dreadnought.  It is at least a question whether,  in the humid air of the North Sea,  guns would often bo effective at a  twelve-miles' range. At nine miles  lhe so-called "second-class" battle-  __iiLl_!-__ _=____._' --Jvin6.---F-4.__trd__typo  Special Sense of Direction ��������������������������� Not  Guided by Sight or Odor.  Tho directive sense which is pos--  . essed by bees is tbe object of researches made by M. Gaston Bonnier, of Paris, and he seems to  prove that bees possess a special  sense- like that of carrier pigeons.  Bees can i\y for two miles from  the hive and arc then able t ore-  turn after gathering their supply  ���������������������������of honey. Langs!roth and others  i-upposo that vision comes into play  ���������������������������and that bees can sec for a great  distance and can also note objects  o tho way so as to find their path.  Others, with Dadent, suppose that  thc bees aro guided by the senso  of smell and that they can .smell  sflowors -at one and a half miles.  Tho author makes experiments  to prove that bees can return to  the hive without, using either sight  or odor. As to sight, he takes bees  to a distance of one or two miles  from the hive in a closed box. They  fii ways fly back to the hive when  released. Thc same is true when  their eyes arc covered, so that  sight is not essential. As regards  odor, experiments seem to prove  .hat bee. perceive odors at only  short distances.      When.   .  ncddlo  A CANADIAN'S TRIUMPH  6,000 MILES FOR A BRIDES  .WORK OF"SIR  PERCY   GIROU-  ARD IN NIGERIA.  Tltc   Former    Governor    of    the  Colony   Was   Banqueted   ia  London.  A farewell dinner was given recently at tho Gaiety ivcstaurant,  London, by Northern Nigerian officials to Sir Percy Girouard on his  relinquishing tho government of  Northern Nigeria to take up his appointment as Governor and _om-  mandcr-in-Chief of the East Africa  Protectorate. Mr. E. A. Speed,  v. in'cf Justice of Northern Nigeria,  presided.  The chairman, in proposing tho  health of Sir Per.., Girouard, said  that thc occasion marked the severance of a connection between the-  Governor and themselves of the  most pleasant and satisfactory description. When he took up the oOiec  of Governor Sir Percy was no  stranger to hard work or high cfii-  cial position, but it was not an easy  task for anyone to follow a man of  dipped in ether is brought near the  the ability and strenuous charactc  head of the bee, it shows signs of  perceiving tho odor, but not so  when tho needle is placed back of  him or near other organs.  Besides, when the organs of .smell  (antenae) are- removal entirely thc  bees will return to the hive.     M.  Bonnier  makes   the following experiment.    At 600    feet-  from  the  hive he places a supply of syrup,  ���������������������������and the bees soon iind it, proceeding to and fro to tho hive.      Such  bees he marks with green colored  ���������������������������powder.    He then places a second  .supply of syrup .at tho same distance from the hive, but spaced at  ���������������������������twenty feet from tho former. Other  bees -aro now  engaged  in  thc to  .and  fro  movement to  this  point,  but these- are not the same  individuals as the green marked bees,  who are still working on the first  supply, and      he    marks these in  red.  Wc thus have two distinct set.  o* bees, and we sec that the y ean  distinguish two directions which  form a very'acute angle. "We seem  to "_ave hero a special directive  sense which does nob reside in thc  ���������������������������antennae but probably in the. _cre-  /broid ganglia. Other facts may  b. cited in evidence of the dire, livo  '.sense of bees.  _���������������������������  PIRATES SMOKE!) TO DEATH.  At  night  this  huge  building    is  lighted by electricity nnd gas. Fight  arc laii-jjs of 1,500 candle-power capacity and  one  monster cloolrlier  in   Iho centre of  (ho dome,  about  130 i'eet above Uic floor, giving forth  . light equivalent lo 0,000 candles,  light up the centre of tho hall, another GOO electric lights being required to light thc boxes. In case  the electricity should fail,  the interior can bo illuminated by 3.G50  gas burners and another 500 in the  corridors and extra rooms.  Under  the core of the    roof are a largo  number  of chandeliers  wilh  3,i  gas-burners,  which  have  to be ignited by means of electric sparks.

The unrelenting methods of the  Dutch soldiers in the Dutch East  Indian possessions in dealing with  the natives among whom piracy  continues as an industry rather  than a crime wen illustrated in the  deliberato suffocation of thirty ono  Achinese men, women and children  by a punitive expedition on tho  Sumatra coast in early June. The  story reaches Vancouver by Canadian Pacific steamer.  i=-T-ho="victinis^wererisupposed"to"bev  the daring and bloodthirsty party  which a few weeks previously attacked and plundered a trading  junk of Japore, killing the majority  of her crew. Thc perpetrators of  this outrage being pursued by police  boats from Singa >ore took roi'uge  in southern Sumatra, where they  established headquarters in a roomy  cave. . They, were-tracked-by the  Dutch troops, assisted by local  guides, whose enmity the fugitives  had incurred by cruel forays.  Overtures were at first opened  for the surrender of tho party and  the pirates asked that ono of the  military officers be sent to discuss  the situation. For this duty a young  lieutenant volunteered. He was  promptly driven back fatally  wounded with spears. The pirates  were then called upon to surrender unconditionally, safety for  their women and children being  still guaranteed.  Their reply was a shower of  spears and a volley from the ancient firearms they possessed. Orders  were thereupon given that no mercy  be shown. The commanding officers  had fires built at the cavern mouth,  the smoke from which poured inward in dense clouds. When it  was thought that the outlaws had  been sufficiently smoked out to be  amenable the blazing pyres were  extinguished and an entrance  gained.  The work of punishment was  found to have been complete, for  of the thirty-cne Achinese not one  remained alive. The bodies of  twenty-eight,      including     several  of Sir Frederick Lugard. In the  construction of the Baro-Kano Hai 1 -  way Sir Percy Girouard cut himself  loose from all traditions and entered upon  AN   ENTIRELY   NEW   SYSTEM,  with thc result that they saw to-day.  The construction of that railway  was one of his titles to fame as  Governor. Another was the question of the settlement of the land  tenure. By studying the native law  on the subject he had formulated a  system.of land tenure which, while  it preserved to the great hereditary chiefs their ancient seigneurial  rights, established in beneficial  ownership the tillers of th������������������ soil, and  had, in addition, provided a source  of revenue for the Protectorate  which in the fulness of time would  enable the Government to dispenso  with most, if not all, other forms  of taxation.  Sir Percy Girouard, who was cordially received, paid a tribute to the  work done by Sir Frederick Lugard  and General Morland, and after  some remaks on thc Bano-Kano  1! ail way, said he did not think the}  would have carried out to successfully their first year's work- if ' it  had not been for the assistance  given by the Elder Dempster Company and Sir Alfred Jones. Witn  regard to the land tenure in Northern Nigeria, it had been base<l primarily on old native laws and customs and with a desire to accord  fair treatment to thoso commercial  undertakings which desired to develop the country on reasonable.  lines. He was hopeful that this  policy would meet with the approval  of the home authorities. . If. it did,  he felt sure they would see great  benefits from it. It was merely a  change from !  A COMMUNAL SYSTEM  of tenure, such as was prevalent in'  most parts of Africa, to a national  system  of tenure which    provided  for the duo expansion of the people  -tifd^d i oh'_o t^al lo vrf o r=thtrp e r soiTaT  greed of any one.   He was hopeful  that under such a system revenue  would grow in Northern    Nigeria  to such an extent as would allow of  thc practical exclusion of all other  forms  of taxation.    It had  never  been tho object of himself or of his  predecessor, Sir Frederick   Lugard,  to obtain revenues which were not  legitimately due-both to the native  Governments nnd to the . Central  Government   by thc peoples whose  rights and interests they felt themselves bound to look after. (Cheers.)  They regard   themselves,   whether  Governors, Administrators, or Residents, as trustees-for   the natives,  and he believed that that ideal had  been faithfully carried out.   Thero  was need of patience    in    dealing  with the natives.   If they attempted  to frog-march those   people    over  bridges of centuries in a few short  years we should lose, he would not  call it the loyalty, for that was not  a word which was applicable to the  case, but the affection   which   we  ought certainly to gain.

It'  passed around the camp, as post-'  cards from home are wont to do,!  until it reached "Tony" Mclassa,1  a handsome six-foot Neapolitan���������������������������,  who was, however, a naturalized  British subject.

At last  there came one to Cornwall which  spoke of a coming visit to England.  Metassa said how anxious he was  to seo tho sights of the country;  but when he landed close, in the  wake of his letter he-did not,seem  particularly anxious, to visit tho  Tower and Stratford-ou:Avon. Instead, he hurried down to Trcgre-  h'an, which is quite out of the track  of. the ordinary tourist.  It was not very long afterwards  that Trcgrcnan was formally told  what it had known all along, and  preparations began for a good old-  fashioned village wedding. Thc village was a mass of flags, fancy  mottoes, and confetti, and the  whole population was at the church  io see the bridegroom take away  his Cornish bride.   *   TTIE SAVAGE MIND.

I believe that traders who seek to  do business among natives frequently wrap the goods they have  to sell in paper of a particular  ,-olor most appreciated by the natives of tho district.  "This love of vivid colors is particularly strong in India, and the  .Gospels which we send out for sale  iin tho bazaars are    protected by  .bindings of brightly colored paper.  ���������������������������Each Gospel has its particular col-  ior,'and these are selected according to the length of the Gospel.

Opportunity lures tho unscrupulous to crime. But can mere opportunity explain thc extraordinary  recurrence of crimes of violence  at certain spots? Is it not possible  that there is a microbe which leads  people to commit crimes.  At thc out-of-the-world village of  Beni Somrook, in the M'inich Province of Egypt, a ghastly tragedy  was recently brought to light. A  boy had disappeared. Search being  made by thc police, his half-burnt  bones were discovered in the oven  cf a new pottery works. Two potters were arrested, and one turned  State evidence. The child, he said,  had been burnt in order that luck  might attend the baking of the first  batch of pottery.  The black record for death by  violence possessed by certain spots  might almost excuse modern man  for a lurking doubt whether, after  all, there might not be a real foundation for-- this dreadful' belief.  CONSUMED BY QUICKLIME.  Some years ago a German named  'Bobbe was arrested for murder.  Bobbc was thc owner of a small  tobacco' shop in a back street of  Berlin, and was suspected of doing away with the son of his landlord.  The premises being searched by  the police, the floor of the back  kitchen was taken up, and a dead  body partly consumed by quicklime found in a hollow beneath.  Th's was proved to be that of Bob-  be' s victim.  But here comes the strange part  of the story. During the search the  police noticed that another portion of the floor sounded hollow.  A large stone slab being raised, "a  dry well was discovered, and at  the bottom the skeletons of two  more bodies. -The latter-.had undoubtedly been , there." for very  many years, certainly-long-before  Bobbe's tenancy. 'Their identity  and that of their murderer will  certainly never be known.  La Torre, tho Toulon -murderer,  who' killed his wife and three children in a fit of apparently causeless  fury, always maintained lhat hc did  it because some influence stronger  than his own will drove him to  snatch up the razor and kill them  with it.  BRICKED UP IN THE WALL.  Certainly, there was no apparent  object for the crime. The man had  always been >a good husband and  father, and thc prison doctors certified him sane.  After the guillotining of La Torre,  the old house in which he had  lived could find no tenant. It was  said lo -be haunted, and no ono  would rent it.

Wilson,  North Carolina, is a- piece of rising ground known as Lincoln Hill.  An ordinary-looking spot enough,  jet ugly memories attach to it. It  _k said that, long ago, Bed Indians used it as a torture spot, and  that white men and women, too,  have yielded up their lives there,  bound to thc stake, and burnt to  death.  FOUR AT ONE PLACE.  Be that as it may, modern events  have amply justified thc evil reputation in which thc people of Wilson hold the spot. In tho year 1891  a prosperous hotel-keeper of the  town was found lying dead on a  bare space by the road, on thc sido  of the hill. He is believed to have  committed suicide, but thc reason  no one knows.  Three years later two boys came  running into thc town to say a  an an was lying by the road with a  hole iu his head. They found him  on the same spot, dead. He was  d young insurance agent from New  York, but whether it was murder or  suicide none could say.  Four years later, there was another suicide, the body being found  within a few yards of the same  place. To cap the climax of this  series of tragedies, a brutal murder has since followed.- One evening a    prosperous    farmer.  Calvin  Barnes by name, was walking into  the town, accompanied by his two  little grandchildren, when, just as  lie reaehed the old torture ground,  an assassin's .bullet laid him low.  Does it not seem as if some microbe of murder tainted this hill,  infecting passers-by with the horrible desiro to kill.  .* .���������������������������  THE FIRST ROAD-MAKERS.  J.erds"of Buffaloes Tramped  Over  (hc Plains.  The buffalo was a good surveyor.  It did not reason out why it should  go in a certain direction, but its  sure instinct took it by tho easiest  and most direct paths, over high  lauds and low, to the salt-licks and  watercourses which were its goal.  The authors of "The Story of the  Great Lakes," Edward Channing  and M. F. Lansing, say that the  buffalo observed something like the  principles which to-day govern the  civil engineer.  As soon as the explorer landed  on the southern shores of Lakes  Erie, Michigan and Superior, he  came upon buffalo roads or  "traces." Sometimes these were  narrow ditches, a foot wide and  from six inches to two feet deep,  trodden down by the impact of  thousands of hoofs, as herd 'after  herd of buffaloes had stamped along  in single file behind their leaders.  When the first path became too  deep for comfort, because of repeated travel, the buffaloes would  abandon it and begin a- second path  alongside the first, and thus the  frequented traces would be gradually widened. "' -  ,_, Again, an immense herd of these,  heavy animals would crash through  the forest,' breaking in their rapid  progress a broad, deep road from  one feeding-ground to anothei.  As this route would be followed  again and again by this and other  herds, it would- become level and  hard as a rock, so that there was  great rejoicing in pioneer settle:  ment when thc weary road-makers,  struggling with log causeways" and-  swampy hollows, came upon a firm,'  solid buffalo trace. Nor was this an  uncommon experience.    ���������������������������.     -\     . \  The line of many of these roads  is .followed to-day. by our. railroads:  and ca'nals, as it. was   followed by-  our long roads, and turnpikes.  The buffalo follows the level of  the valley; he" swerved round high  points whenever it was' possible,.,  "crossing the ridges and watersheds  at "the best natural divides and  gorges; and hc crossed from one side  of a stream of water to. the other  repeatedly in order to avoid climbing up from the "level,, after the  fashion jpf our modern loop railways.   .."....

The Women's Aerial League have ���������������������������  formulated a plan for collecting  funds with which to build an an-  British airship by British mechanics, of British material, in order  that this nascent industry may be  established  in  this country.  A farmer_ .named Jacob Pugh, -  while passing through a! field in the  Wirral district, was attacked by a!  cow, which tossed him some distance. The man was in great danger of being gored when a young  heifer ran up and charged the cow.  Then ensued a spirited battle, and  a second heifer joined thc first in  attacking thc cow, thus enabling  Pugh to crawl into a ditch, where  le was found suffering from severe  cuts and bruises.  At Carlisle race course during the  progress of the race, five men were  arrested for picking pockets,  Welshing, etc., and temporarily  rodged in premises set apart for  police purposes. By some means  all the prisoners to the consternation of the police, succeeded in  escaping. Re-arrests were almost  impossible among such a crowd.  A Bristol child named Florence  Evelyn Sparrow, age'd two years and  four months, was put to bed on  Friday week, and despite the attempts of the parents and a medical  man to wake her, she Elept soundlv  until Monday morning, a period d  about 62 hours.

Heggie, stating that: "In  reply to yours of the 5th inst. the  evidence in this case is now in the  hands of the Crown and I have no  power to order it out.for your perusal or anyone else's. The court was  open to ; everyone and I think the  public generally are already acquainted with the facts."  Unable to see the evidence in this  case, and not knowing wherein our  report of the previous week was a  "gross misstatement," we immediately wrote^ Mr. J ones, and sent him  a paper containing the report. His  reply is as follows:  "Your letter, also paper, to hand.  When Mr. Heggie dismissed case, he  said he. found no case against mo  where I- had any intent to do wrong,  and he thought I had done what  most men- would have done under  similar circumstances, or words to  that effect. Hc never said at any  time that a strong case was made  out against me. It was never mentioned at any time about me giving  Long an agreement, nor did I give  him one. I sold Ellis the farm, and  he had to respect the life lease 'to  Long, which he was willing to do.  He gave Long an agreement to supply ��������������������������� him with food till next July. I  gave Ellis an agreement I would not  close mortgage if payments were not  kept up-till-after Long's death."  FORTUNATE VANCOUVER  Vancouver has had many special  editions published .. by its newspaper  offices, and all of them creditable to  the City of Destiny, but all that have  gone before must take a back seat  for the number just put out by the  Saturday Sunset. It was a 48-page  beautifully illustrated edition, picturing Vancouver? far more grandly  than it was-ever pictured before.  Preachers in the mining camps are  finding some difficulty making both  ends meet. Either that, or the old  camps are becoming sor good that  the services of the preacher are no  longer required; At a meeting of the  Presbytery held last week at Grand  Forks, the resignation of Rev.
