The coast lumbermen have raised  the price of lumber $1.00 a thousand.  All toe paths lead to the Bank of  Montreal in Endorby.  Your word is only valuable when it  is not for sale.  The town" you live in will not grow  any faster than the people in it.  R. Hadow left for Old England on  Friday last, to be absent until April.  Most people adjust themselves to  i.ew conditions with a great deal of  pain. ���������������������������  Kindness   is    something we receive  ��������������������������� and have to   pass   along in order to  keep it.

Enderby merchants are to be complimented on the splendid quality of  ' the Holiday Goods .they are showing.  Jas. Evans has sold his interest in  the livery business to Ed. J.

The Enderby Odd Fellows are making arrangements for a New Year's  eve ball. It promises to be the dancing event of the winter.  ~C. H. Lake, after 12 years' absence  from the old home town, left on  Wednesday evening for Oakville, Ont.  He will be gone three months.  Skating on   the   river has been en-  r  <_.  that there is more health and good-  cheer to come from this great outdoor sport than most people imagine  and that the best way to prove it is  to give people the opportunity to  en;oy it.  Armstrong's mi litia was ordered  out one night last week, and it answered the call somewhat decollette  where the trousers fit tightest; gun  in hand, fire in eye and deucedly in  earnest.   It was   going to settle for  ever and a day the Chinese question  in Armstrong. But when it arrived  on the scene of disturbance, it proved  to be Scotch and not Chinese at a'  at a', and they were just having a  wah bit o' fun in honor o' guid St.  Andrew. It was a Scotch on the  editor.  To celebrate the 12th anniversary  of their wedding, a daughter was  born to Mr. and Mrs. Ed. J. Forester on Sunday evening.- Tuesday the  infant developed a hemorrhage from  the bowels, and that evening passed  away. The sympathy of the community is with Mr. and Mrs. Forrester in their bereavement.  A daughter was born on Monday to  Mr. and Mrs. ,Fred Dean, of Mara.

The trouble is not that our church  is too small or not grand enough; it  is that the spirit in the church is a  thousand times more dead than the  stones under the church.  Editor Clement,    of   the Penticton  Press, is receiving   the   sympathy of  "his" "brothers" in   the "craft;   "on the  death of his    wife,    after only eleven  months- of married life. ���������������������������  Next time you feel the habit coming on, go clown to the home merchant, tell him how you arc afllicted,  what you want and sec if he cannot  do better for you than the mailorder man.  Do not miss the children's concert  next Tuesday evening, in K. P. Plall,  in aid of the. Enderby ward in the  Vernon hospital. It will be like all  the affairs given by the children of  Enderby���������������������������first-class.  Fred Moore left last week on a few  months' visit to his Old Country  home. During his absence Mr. Moore  will take a course in photo-finishing  so as further to improve on the excellent work he is doing in this line.  Rev. Jas. Hood, of Summerland,  will preach at the Anniversary services in the Presbyterian church next  Sunday morning and evening. Dinner and programme will be given on  Monday evening following. Special  offering at both services. Sunday  School will meet in the morning as  usual at 10 i a. iw.  Manager Stevens, of the Lumber  Company, has concluded to establish  an .open skating rink for the town,  on the recreation grounds, adjoining  the curling rink. It is Mr. Steven's  intention to make the rink open to  all and absolutely   free, he* believing  m OTHER . England has a sorry  pickle in her pistol pocket this  . Yule-tide, nineteen hundred and  nine. In her Christmas stocking she  will find-one .man ^standing between  the country and revolution, and overshadowing-this the god of war stands  threateningly���������������������������war with her strongest  foe. It _s not pleasant to contemplate, but Britishers are Stoics in  their Yule-tide as well as in the  counting-room, and dangers do not  stampede them, but only make them  more stoical. The complete rejection  of the budget by the House of Lords  has caused consternation in all quarters. It has resulted in the tying up  of funds which were badly needed  and a loan of five hundred millions  will have to.be negotiated at once to  pay the ordinary accounts of the nation. Foreseeing this, and knowing  what the results are likely to be, the  Banlc_of_Engl__(l~"has lielcl-i~ts rate of  interest up to five per cent, and the  outlook is not favorable for this rate  to be reduced for months to come.  Canadian banks, taking their cue  from this greatest financial institution in the world, are sending out a  timely warning throughout the Dominion that this is no time to live  lavishly, or to plunge in business. Go  slow, seems to be thc slogan. Make  sure of your ground.  What has brought this about; what  docs it mean; what will be the end ?  An ominous hush broods over Europe. Tlie nations -and empires of the  Old World arc waiting in breathless  suspense for the breaking of thc  storm. It is con ring with thc speed  of the hurricane, though men have  gone on for months supinely indifferent to it, and empires have hid it  from their eyes. England herself  only yesterday awakened to it. But  warning after warning has been given  only to be scoffed at and ridiculed.  Now the storm is about to break,  and Mother England and her children  see her peril���������������������������may we not say, their  peril. And the war���������������������������the coming war  ���������������������������is on every Britisher's mind if not  upon his lips. With every cabinet  in Europe behind closely guarded  doors, around great tables, grave  and thoughtful men are peering anxiously into a portentous future. "The  tension is felt acutely in Downing  street and the foreign office," says a  writer, "and it is reflected in the  brooding eyes of Pinchon, the great  foreign   minister   of   France.    With  phlegmatic calm, Von Bethman Hol-  weg, the grim chancellor of Germany's war lord, studies the statistics of the superb army, the impregnable, fortresses, and the huge fighting craft that fly the' flag of the  Fatherland. Down in the dual empire of Austria-Hungary, an old man,  whom the winter of life has grasped  with its icy chill, is tottering to the  grave*?'" At' hi's~ell"ow stands" a ''figure  ���������������������������sinister, saturnine, scheming���������������������������waiting for the not far distant moment  when he can grasp the reins of government. In the new Turkey a government, as yet ' untried, is being  carefully studied by all for- the part  it may have to take. Across in Italy  a king, nominally bound by the triple  alliance, has always athwart every  plan the shadow of the recluse of the  Vatican, constantly scheming for a  restoration of temporal, power, and  aided to-day by probably the greatest secretary for state the Church of  Rome has known in a hundred years  ���������������������������Merry Del Val, scholar and ecclesiastic, soldier and dreamer, polished  man of the world and ascetic church  man, keenly cognizant of the move of  every chanaellerie in Europe, and  alert to take the slightest advantage  for the church.  "This is the situation, yet you do  not see it openly discussed in the  newspapers, and you rarely hear it  discussed in public, yet when you  talk confidentially with the men who  are most familiar with the intricate  moves of the various governments  you will be astonished at the frankness iu which they discuss the inevitable eventuality of a great war���������������������������a  war that in its ultimate ramifications will take in England and all  continental Europe. Germany and  England. These are thc great signatory powers to the decree of unrest. They face each other awaiting  the inevitable, thc final war for dominance. Europe is not big enough for  twtf. One must go. Germany has  made her bid for dominance. England cannot acquiesce.  "England is about to go into a general election. England is poor, but  undaunted. Lloyd-George, probably  the ablest chancellor Great Britain  has produced in a generation,  brought in a_ budget which the lords  have rejected. A ministry will stand  or fall at the general election, but  back of it all is the greater, the  more inportant question of England's  world dominance as an empire. The  trouble England encounters to-day in  her budget battle goes back to feudal  days, when the barons had great  grants of land, aud the power of life  and death    over   their   suzerainties;  when they"' were exempt from taxation upon their - lands, but in times  of war must furnish a quota of men,  arms and equipment for the king's  defense. "The feudal system is dead,  but the lord holds his land free of  taxation, while absolved from the  duty of furnishing men and arms.  Now Lloyd-George step's in with his  plans to,make the great nobles, the  great landholders," pay - their- equit-  able~share of taxation, and the house"  of lords rejects the budget. - All this  has close bearing on the strained,  momentous ��������������������������� situation. The increased  taxation is necessary^ to keep up  England's stupendous war plans. Men  and ships.must be provided to sustain England's "dominance on the sea,  and men and ships cost millions.  "The general election will mean  more than the stand or fall of a  ministry, or its adoption or rejection  of a plan of taxation. England is_ a  free trade country. Her vast colonies  are open to the traders of the world.  Germany is the biggest salesman to  England and her colonies. From  Germany's little strip of 300 miles of  sl3l)oa"rd7l.hTseh_.s=h_^f^h"i^s^ffeigh_==  ed with German merchandise to all  the golden colonies of England. The  tariff, reformers, protectionists really,  are demanding protection for English  markets and English trade. Thc only  markets left to Germany are those of  England and her colonies. Close thc  markets of England and her colonies  to Germany- and- Germany -becomes  bankrupt. There you have a cause���������������������������,  not the only one���������������������������but a great one.  The pretext may not be the adoption  of" protection, the intervention  against colonies, tlie contention of  superior sea power; thc pretext will  be something else, but the real reasons will be those cited. Germany  will fight for sheer survival. England will fight to maintain her supremacy. Whichever loses disappears  from thc affairs of the world as a  dominant power. The victor will demand an indemnity big enough to rebuild destroyed ships aud insure the  world's greatest navy for years to  come. If England wins, her territorial and colonial system will be  perpetuated. If Germany wins, huge  land grants in the colony line may be  demanded."  ooo  All there is of life is to do your  work (which really is only play) and  be kind. Anything more than this is  artificial and unnecessary, and the  sacrcdest thing in life for you and  me is the work we are doing,  ooo  Positive   anything   is    better than  negative nothing.  ing cockerels and inquisitive cocks  and cackling hens. At the present .  writing, it is difficult to say what  will be the limit of exhibits, but it is  known that the number of birds will  exceed those shown last year by at  least 100 or 150.  Our poultrymen have made good a  second time, and everything points to  this exhibit being a far greater, success than that of last year. The a  birds are there to make thc competition keener; the fowl are in. better  condition, and there is'' a greater  variety, and more competitors in the  several breeds. The Valley towns are  very much in evidence, and.there are  some fine- entries from the outside. '  It remains for   the   citizens of Enderby and vicinity.to make the show  a complete   success,   by attending it  arid showing an interest in what the  poultrymen,are   doing.     The judging ���������������������������  should be   finished .to-day    at noon,  and this afternoon   and evening, and  to-morrow, from 10 a. m. to 10 p.m.  the hall will- be   open to the public.  The   general    admission  '.is , 25c   for -  adults, 15c for "children:   Friday after   .  noon, from 4 ' to '6,   all.school children will be admitted free.      " '   '   '..

Jn returning thanks for bis election as chairman, Mr. Tuppen had  hinted pretty broadly that bis accession to power would be marked  h\ a sudden rise in popularity of  ���������������������������Bea-chville as a seaside resort. He  had promised ihe town-a- wave of  prosperity. Mr. Tuppen also owned the largest grocery establishment in Beachville. And, finally,  Mr. Tuppen was in vague negotiation for the band of Miss MViisie  .Baker, whose father owned several terraces of desirable but- unappropriated villa residences. Mr.  Tuppen remembered the last words  Mr.  Baker  had  addressed to him.  "No.''Tuppen " he had said, "  can't give my consent to you court-  in5 Maisie. You ain't a man of  your word. Tuppen. When you  booms Beachvillc a- bit, like you  .aid. and 1 gets my houses let,  then p'r'aps I'll think about it  again :';  Jn short, Mr. Tuppen bad promised Beachville a pretty considerable  _oor_ this summer, and now people  make the'papers talk!  safe!

In the  back-oflic"  uf tbe. "Beachville  Gazette"  you   would    have  found    a  young man. whose otherwise genial  features  were  twisted  into a perpetual scowl by deep thought over  i tbe problem    uf    Beachville's    ad-  I vaucement. in prosperity.  j    Ma reliant was bis name, and be  was  tbe    proprietor,    editor,  and  i publisher of tbe "Gazette."   '   He,  too.  bad    fallen    a    victim to thc  _h_rms of Miss Maisie   Baker.  Indeed,   the    affection    was  mutual.  Only  Mr.   Baker    was  intra, tiblc.  When  M a reliant-    had interviewed  J'im with  regard to his consent to  a marriage, lhe worries attendant  or. several empty terraces of houses  were  uppermost    in   bis  mind,  and be gave a flat refusal.  "It's no good, "my lad! Look  -���������������������������ere, when yon can show me tbe  visitors' list in that paper of yours  takin' up a whole page through  your own exertions; then. I might  ���������������������������change my mind. At" present, you  can find roo'rn for all tbe names in  a dozen lines. You alter that, my  boy, and'then we'll sec.'"'  "But how?'"' asked Mr- Ma reliant.  "That's for you fo find out," said  Baker. "And you'll have to buck  up: Tupperr's on the same tack as  yourself!"  And so it came about that Mar-  chant sat in his office for a week,  scowling and scheming.  "Wonder if- "'Suicide of a Local  Editor' would get more than a line  was staying at Beachfield.

That so  popular a town as Brighton should  bo the gainer at Beachville's expense annoy.cd Mr. Tuppen excessively.  But still visitors did not arrive  in increasing numbers, and Mr.  Baker lowered the rents of his  houses back to their original figure. Thc booming of Beachvillc  was banging fire.  III.  were calling on him fo redeem his   ������������������b������������������ut  Beachvillc  in    the   London  promise, for up to the present visitors were- remarkably scarce at  iBeacliville.  And so Mr. Tuppen wandered  moodily along tbe empty sea-front  oi Beachville. ' From time to time  his gaze travelled over the beach  tr. ('he sparkling- sea; (hen his eyes  would slowly turn back to the little town, and he would sigh im-  1   patiently.  "If only I could think of a way :"  muttered Mr. Tuppen ; and so came  to a seat on the sea-front, and rested awhile.  '  "Splendid weather, sir!" observed the only other occupant of tbe  beat���������������������������a thin young man of shabby  appearance and florid manner.  "Weather's-all right," conceded  Mr. Tuppen.  "J-'ity there are not a few more  visitors," persisted the young  man.  Mr. Tuppen eyed him with a  baleful stare.  "J suppose few -people know of  ihe place," continued the young  man. _"f didn't myself till this  morning.

"' .ard the news?" demanded  Mr. .Baker. "Tuppen's the boy!  Beachville's going to boom now!  The Rajah of Jalnpur's coming 'ere  .for  a fortnight !"  "Who?" queried Marc-bant.

Tlie rajah took bis lunch in privacy at the hotel, and in the after-  noon be drove along (hc sea-front  in company with Mr. Tuppen.. Mr.  Tuppen's personal popularity rose  li fever-height.

"About th. rajah "  "Well?"   scowled  Tuppen.  Marehant was the one man above  all others whom he desired to keep  from  inquiries concerning the  rajah.  "Do you think I could have a  few words with  him?"  "No,   I  don't!"   answered   Tuppen ungraciously.    "Good-day!"  "But vou're    such  a.   friend  of  his "'    <>  "J. tell you hc won't see you!"  shouted Tuppen rudely, for he was  very sore. "What's the good of  your tuppeny-ha'penny rag to Mm,  I should like to know?"  "If you asked him, he might consent to see mc !"  "Well. I sha'n't���������������������������see! Hc don't  want to see no rotten reporters!  Xo more do I! I've seen and heard  enough of you ! Got tbe cheek to  'ang about after Maisie Baker,  ain't you! As if she could ''ave  anything to do with an ink-stained  pauper like you! You and your  paper���������������������������yo.n're both a couple of  swindles!"  '/Really,  Mr. Tuppen "  "Oh, go and 'ang yourself!" retorted Mr. Tuppen, and stamped  off.  "TM1 be even with you one day!"  thought Marehant, and went to the  Seaview Hotel.  As a forlorn hope, he sent his  card direct to the rajah, with a request for a short interview. As  he expected, the reply came that  the rajah could see no one.  "I ought to write something  about him when he's gone,"  thought Marcliant. "Something pf  a more intimate nature. If L  could only interview him wouldn't  olc  Tuppen swear!"  He sat pondering, then took his  difficulty to the manager cf the hotel. It so happened -that it was  policy for the manager of the hotel to keep on thc best terms with  Marehant, so ho speedily evolved  an idea.  "Tell you what," he said. "Hs'c  only got one nigger attendant to  look after him, and we have to put  "Made Beachville the laughingstock of the world, has that Tuppen!" he shouted. "What about  ray houses now 1 Not another visitor will come near such a pack of  foold as we've been ! I don't never want to see Tuppen again ! And  a precious chance you've got of  filling lhat page with a visitor's  list!"  "I don't know so much," replied  Marehant enigmatically.  Next morning the Press of England, owing to Marchant's labors  with telegraph and "flimsy," had  a- new joke. Here was a hoax, and  thc story of n duped chairman and  the plausible rajah caused a broad  smile from cast lo west, from norJi  to south. And the best of it was  that each account spoke of "the  beautiful little seaside town of  Beachville," or of "that delightful spot on the coast, Beachvillc."  Thc Weekly Press took up the  joke and here there was-scope for  more information regarding Beachville, and Marehant saw that they  got it. People reading of the Beachville hoax read also at the same  time of Beachville's merits. The  "Moon" declared that it contained  . colony of artists, who were annoyed at the popular notice, which  might lead to the invasion of their  seclusion; the "Herald" maintained that Beachville was occupied  solely by aristocrats, who resented publicity.  People began to talk of Beachville: better still, people began to  visit Beachville. Best of all. they  recommended the place to others.  Beachville became popular at last.  Marehant not only showed Mr.  Baker a page of visitors' list; ho  showed him a special four-page  supplement filled with names.  The booming of Beachville    had  been successfully accomplished.  . * * * *  Mr. Baker's houses are all let  now save one.

Here is a talc of cheap living told  by a carrier belonging to a village  on the Suffolk coast. He might be  a successor to Barkis, for it is  Bin ndeston, the birthplace of Dav'd  Copperfield. He had taken in eight  London children to board for a  week, and with himself and his wife  and two children of their own,  {here were twelve people to feed.  He put down thc exact cost of every  item of food, w-hat was taken from  tbe garden being rated at market  value, and the total was $5.56 for  the week, or a- fraction under 47  cents each. "We all had plenty,"  stated this burly fellow, who can  shoulder a couple of hundredweight  as lightly as a toy, and with a  smile be added, "You know 1 have  a good appetite, and the. air did  make those London children eat."  There was fish for breakfast, either fresh or the Yarmouth bloater, with, coffee, or cocoa; meat  for dinner, in the form of nutritious stews, with gren peas and othei  _  .n'mil  sea-wal  He was, however, a most  j inaccessible    potentate.      To    the.  [people of Beachville be never spoke  save io .   r. Tuppen.  lint- there was. a cloud io the sun  of Mr. Tuppen's sat isfaci ion. The  London papers ignored lhe important presence, of tin; rajah at Beachville. True, one paper bad mentioned that tbe ILijah of Jellypure  night!"  Therefore, it came about that evening that Marehant stood behind  the rajah's chair when that ruler  came striding in  to his dinner.  Now, it was probably due to Mar-  chant's inexperience that a- contretemps occurred at as early a course  as thc soup. In handing the rajah  his plateful, hc was nwkward, and  a few drops swished over the side  of the plate on to the rajah's gleaming  shirt-front.  The rajah bent bis bead to see  the extent of the disaster. Mar-  chant suddenly ceased bis apologies  to stare in fascination tit the rajah's neck. The brown skin ended  abruptly beneath tbe collar, and  was succeeded by gleaming while!  .Marehant held bis peace till the  tend of dinner. He was a long time  clearing tbe table: be had not lin-  isbed when the negro went i ito another room to fetch his master's  cigar-case.  Then Mai .limit locked tbe door,  and turned to the rajah. Evcntu-  /illy, with bluff and a five-pound  note, and a promise to delay action till after the rajah's departure,  he wormed the rajah's secret from  him.  The rajah, as had been arranged,  left Beachville next day; a crowd  of the inhabitants were at tiie station to see him off.  Hardly bad the train left the  station when there was published  a special edition of the "Gazette."  Beachville, incredulous. learnt  bow it had been hoaxed; bow the  chairman of its council had been  duped by a bogus rajah. _ The rajah had been merciful in bis disclosures.

Some lime afterward a thermometer registering the identical temperature was d'scovered in a pawnshop in Glasgow and by this means  the police were enabled to track the  doctor's assailants and to arrest  them.  FROZEN HOPES.  In 1871 there was another Arctic  tragedy. Captain Hall, ihe. commander of the U. S. ship Polaris,  left New York with high hop.s in  the June of that year, was frozen  in by the following Septemo.r, and  died in November. His cr:. v, moro  fortunate than he, survived, and,  after intense suffering, reached  Newfoundland in May, 13��������������������������� '3  Still more disastrous wis an expedition which left San Francisco a few years later���������������������������that of tho  Jeannettc, commanded by Caut."'.u  do J_ong. This steamer, after braving a thousand perils, eve Uually  sank during a terrific hurricane,  previously having broken --tej.u in  two. The whole of her crc v escaped, only, however, soon to :ncet  with another disaster. While they  were making for the Siberian c'oa-.,  one of the three ship's boats foundered with all hands, and the otbe.  two, in charge of De Long and Commodore Melville respectively, separated, the leader's boat drifting  to the shores of the Lena delta, and  Melville's reaching a Siberian settlement on the River Lena.  Melville and his companions���������������������������a  party of ten in all���������������������������travelled inland, succeeded in procuring assistance, and returned to Biiccvir  tbe leader and his party. " Aftor  many hardships, they reached D'-j  Long's last camping-place; but,  unhappily, they were too late.  Thirteen frozen bodies la.y half  buried in thc snow.  STARVING TO DEATH.  .

To many palates the taste of good  hash is wholly unknown, because  though such a common dish, tew  cooks understand the art of making it and do not appreciate that  tho ordinary mixture of meats and  vegetables, masquerading as bash,  is but a travesty upon thc well-  made article.  If thc directions given in thc following recipes for thc various kinds  cf hash be strictly observed, the  result in each instance will be a  most satisfactory revelation to thc  housewife whose makeshift of a  dish called, for want of another  jiairine, hash, has only met with  scant welcome on the family table :  Corned-Beef Hash.���������������������������This is, perhaps, tho most usual and at the  same time one of the most savory  kinds of hash. To make it, allow  one part of cold boiled potato cut  into small cubes to two parts of  cold corned-beef chopped fine; mix  welLand season to taste with salt  and pepper. Put. a large tablespoonful of butter in a frying-pan;  fwhen melted turn the meat and  potato mixture into it and add  enough boiling water to moisten  thoroughly. Cover "closely and set  on a hot part of the range for five  minutes, being careful not to let  it scorch. When a crust is formed  on the bottom, turn and brown the  upper side; then transfer to a hot  platter and send to the tablo at  once.  Corned-Beef Hash with Cheeso.���������������������������  Prepare the moat and potatoes as  iu preceding recipes, then put into  a buttered baking-pan, molding  with the hands into- the form of an  omelet. Dredge with bread-crumbs,  dot with bits of butter, and bake  a light-brown in a hot oven. Just  before taking the hash from the  oven, cut four ounces of Canadian  cheese into small pieces and stir  over the fire in two tablespoonfuls  of sweet milk until melted. Beat  ���������������������������an egg light, add one tablespoonful  of milk, mix well, add to the  cheese, season with cayenne, and  ���������������������������stir a few minutes. Turn the hash  out on a hot platter, pour thc  _hees_ mixture over it, garnish  ���������������������������with parsley, and send to the table  at onco.  Beefsteak -Hash.���������������������������Cut the lean  portions of' left-over steak into  ���������������������������small pieces, discarding all bone  and gristle and most of the fat.  Pare &nd slice thin raw potatoes  in thc proportion of half meat and  half potatoes; chop ai small onion  fire; put the whole over the fire  in enough cold water to allow for  several hours' cooking without replenishing, which detracts from the  richness of the hash. Bring slowly  to the boiling point, then simmer  until tho potatoes thicken the  gravy. Season to taste with salt,  pepper and butter. This hash may  be cooked the day before, then reheated for breakfast.  Quick Hash.���������������������������Cut tender cold  roast beef or veal into dice; put  ���������������������������___ff.r_tl__.fire in.cokLwater_ to_co.vei_  well; add for each two cupfuls of  meat one teaspoonful of minced onion and a pinch of celery seed.

Mutton Hash with Green Peas.���������������������������  Chop the lean portions of cold roast  c boiled mutton "fin������������������." "Cook in  ���������������������������nough cold water to cover, adding.  if the flavor is liked, a little minced  onion. Bring slowly to the boiling  point, then move the vessel to a  cooler part of thc range and simmer until thc meat is very tender.  Season with salt, pepper and butter, thickening with flour. Have  ready stewed peas, fresh or canned,  6easoncd for the table, also a sufficient number of buttered rounds of  toast; heap a helping of the hash  iD tho centre of each round and  surround with a border of peas.  Hash in Pepper Shells.���������������������������Chop  cold roast veal or fowl fine; cover  .with cold water and cook slowly  until very tender. Then season to  taste with salt; add a dash of cayenne and a generous lump of butter. Remove from thc fire and add  sufficient bread-crumbs to give  "body" to the hash. Have at hand  the required number . of pepper  ehells washed clean; fill these with  the hash, stand upright "in a baking-pan, dot with butter, half fill  the pan with boiling water and  stand in a hot oven fifteen minutes.  This makes a delicious luncheon  dish or an entree.  set aside until ready to serve. Then  fill with equal parts of chopped  walnuts and dates and cover with  whipped cream. J  Berry Griddle Cakes.���������������������������Take half  a pint of huckleberries, raspberries, or strawberries and one and  one-half pints of flour, ono teaspoonful of salt, one tablespoonful  of brown sugar, two teaspoonfuls  of baking powder, two eggs, and  one pint of milk. Sift together  flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder, add beaten eggs, milk and berries, mix into a batter; have the  griddle hot enough to form a crust  as soon as the batter touches it.  Ir. order to confine thc juice of the  berries turn quickly on the other  side, turn once more on each side  to complete the baking.  Grape Conserve���������������������������Fivo pounds  Concord grapes, off stems; three  pounds granulated sugar, two  pounds seeded raisins, one pound  shelled English walnuts. Cover the  grapes with water and cook until  seeds can be separated by rubbing  through a coarse sieve. Add sugar  and raisins, which have previously  been cut in two or quartered. Cook  until like marmalade. When done  add chopped walnuts.  vegetables where the odorous steam  is likely to permeate the house, allow a cup of vinegar to simmer on  the back of the stove.

She says:���������������������������''We first used Zam-Buk for  cuts and bruises, etc., and found it so satisfactory that my husband started using it for  a chronic sore. For a long, time he had been  bothered with an old sore on his leg. and had  used various preparations, yet nothing had  permanently cured it. He began applying  Zam-Buk balm, and was very soon agreeably  surprised to notice a great improvement.  " It was only a matter of a short time before Zam-Buk had thoroughly cleansed the  sore ofa II foul matter and healing commenced.  It is now some months since the sore was  completely closed, and there is no likelihood  of it breaking out again.  " Since then my baby, eighteen months old,  has been cured of eczema on the scalp by  Zam-Buk. This eczema came in red pimples,  and if rubbed or scratched, formed into sores.  The child wa������������������ very fretful from the irritation  of the scalp, but whenever Zam-Buk was  applied it seemed to bring the greatest relief.  Frequent applications were effective in clearing all traces of the disease from the baby's  scalp in a short space of time.

The new Minister- of Finance,  Georges Cochery, has achieved the  impossible. He has proposed a  scheme for additional taxation  which has not aroused a cry of protest- He has actually found a form  of taxation which is expected to  yield $7,600,000 and which those on  whom,it is proposed are glad to pay.  He has kept <some taxes which his  predecessor, M. Caillaux, had pro;  posed to introduce into, the budget, including the increased tax  on automobolies, and he has proposed several new taxes. He has-  discarded M. Caillaux's succession  duties, but he proposes to make  grandchildren' and great-grandchildren who inherit directly from their  grandfathers pay at tho same rate  a_s. their fathers would have paid.  Sons or daughters who inherit-  more than their natural share from  their father's estate will have to  pay at the same rate as a stranger  on the supplementary part falling  to them.  ___.OLco u r. e^M-T-Goc h e r-y-4i a s=r e s 0 r fc*  ed to the two great standbys of  French financial Ministers in want  of money���������������������������tobacco and drink. For  smoking tobacco he has not offended people by raising the price, but  has- slightly diminished the size of  the packet. At the same time he  has promised to have small packets  put up at four or five cents instead  of the present awkward .cube.  Cheaper cigarettes up to ten cents  a packet and cigars which cost one  cent and two cents are not to be altered in price. Higher priced cigars are to. be raised about 25 per  cent.  M. Caillaux intended to require  al receipted bills up to $2 to bear  a one cent receipt stamp. M. Cochery has left receipts under $2  free from a stamp, but proposes a  two cent stamp for receipts between $2 and $-10, a four cent stamp  for receipts between $-10 and ..20o.  a 10 cent stamp for receipts up to  $2,000 and a 20 cent stamp for receipts exceeding $2,000.  Like M. Caillaux, he hopes to increase the tax on advertising posters and he would make luminous  advertisements pay double rates,  for hc says they serve a double purpose, as'ordinary advertisements  in the day and luminous at night."  Anybody opening a new place for  the sale of drink will pay a- tax  equal to a year's rent.  But M. Cochery's triumph is to  make wine growers and absinthe  and bitters manufacturers provide  the State with $7,600,000 and glad  t.i do it." Hhis he has accomplished by proposing that every bottle  of w'nc, absinthe, bitters, etc.,  should bear a small label provided  by thc Government at a cost of two  cents or so. This label, stuck presumably over the cork, would be a  guarantee to the public and a pro  tection to the grower 'of wine as  against the manufacturer whose  output of wine is independent of  the grape harvest.  Such are M. Cochery's proposed  means of "buckling the budget," as  the French say. They must, of  course, be debated by the Chamber.  CANOE'S STRANGE CREW.  Thc Boat Had Drifted Two Thousand Miles.  An inward bound steamer was  hailed by thc pilot boat stationed  outside thc mouth of thc Yangta:-;c  River and asked Lo take three pad  sengerson board and bring them up  to Shanghai, says tho Shanghai  Times. These passengers proved  to be black men of small statu.,  with frizzled hair and faces of th:  /ncgrito type. All that could be  discovered about them was tint  they had been picked up in a can >e  by some Chinese fishermen off the  Chusan Islands.  When found they-were in an etna  ciated condition and had evidently been exposed in their little cra.t  for many days with little to eat  or drink. From signs made by th.  men it was understood that then,  were originally five in the partf.  but that two had died. The castaways were well treated by the  Chinese and then brought up on  a junk and handed over to the j;:-  lot boat, '  As soon as the Tamsui arrived  in port the men were handed over  to the care of the river police. Their  only clothing consisted of shirts and  trousers given-to them by tho o_i  cers of the vessel. They wore massive ear ornaments of coral aad  shells, with necklaces of the same-  materials, and one of the men,'who  was considerably older" than the  others and had a beard, was tat  tooed on his arms and legs.  Two boxes which the men hai  brought with them were searched  with a view to finding a clew to  their nationality, but the contents,  which consisted mainly of twine  and hooks, merely showed that the  strangers were fishermen. For two  days the mystery of their voyage  was unsolved, as no one could be  found who could speak or understand their language.  Eventually, as it was supposed  that" they belonged to., one of the  German islands, around' Xew Guinea, they were taken to the German Consulate, where a map was  put before them.and the names bf a  number of islands were read out.  When Saipan Island, one of the La-  drone group, was mentioned the  men became intensely excited and  showed by sign3 that that was  where they had come from.

India is a land of many strange  superstitions, hut a recent case reported from a town called Bada-  on is curious almost beyond belief.  An inhabitant lost two wives in  quick succession, and was about  to contract a third marriage, when  he received the following mandate  from the relatives of the bride:  "We ar������������������ told that when a man  has already lost two wives, his  third also dies very soon. In order  to satisfy the Angel of Death, you  are requested to marry a doll, and  thereafter come and marry our  daughter, who should bo your  fourth wife, and not   your third-"  The man did as ho was told.

Says hc:    "Subr  joined is   a   press    cutting from the  "American    Lumberman,"    the most  widely recognized    timber  journal in  thc    U.    S.     Unfortunately    for the  British interest the statement is approximately true and with your permission I    should    like    to aslc why  British capital    has   allowed this to  happen?   Surely  my   countrymen   are  sorely in need of thc Prince of Wales'  injunction to wake up while yet there  is time.   It    would    be difficult, adequately to    exaggerate   the incalculable money loss    this   means, but it  may be safely assumed that the investment of $50,000,000 in  this country in timber   will   mean a profit of  ten times   that   amount in as many  years    to   the    fortunate   investors.  Shall I be met by the old cry,  "Too  far    away"?    "Picturesque    exaggeration," etc.     If so, the sooner somebody gets down to business and takes  up the challenge   to    prove this the  better.   I am quite sure what the result will   be.   It    is   apathy and incredulity that is so hard to combat  in  dealing  with   dear  old  England."  The   following    is   the   extract referred to:   "As to what extent American capital is interested in the lumber industry in British Columbia, it  might be said that without American  capital there would be little left.   It  is   conservatively    estimated that 75  per cent, of the   timber   licences are  held by Americans, those being placed  at 17,000,   while   they control,    say,  about half the Crown granted leases.  As to the   mills,    in    the interior of  the   province,   they   control at least  two-thirds of   the   total, and on the  coast about one-third.     The amount  invested    exceeds    $50,000,000,    while  the   value   of   the   holdings   is over  .100,000,000."  jGreetin.

Think how many years she has been  building it, of the toil and privation  endured, of the wounds received, and  let no suspicion follow their actions.  The purity of woman is the salvation  of the race, the hope of future greatness, the redemption of man. Wipe  out her purity and man sinks beneath  the wave of despair, with no star to  guide his life into a channel of safety.

BUYING AT HOME  The Courier, of Unity, Sask., is  endeavoring to show its readers how  little the town profits by the mailorder habit, and how its pernicious  indulgence is slowly sapping the  community of its life-blood. "We  believe that in the majority of cases,  says the Courier, those who are donating to_ the common interests of  the mail order houses, do not review  the peril of the situation. They do  not stop to think that some day perchance they may be in business and  the proposition may confront them.  They use the mail order house to deposit their spare cash while the home  merchant in the majority of cases is  carrying them for large bills. Shame  on    thc    unbusinesslike   methods    of  "If a Government wants to do a  thing, it can always do it, or, if it  does not want to do a thing, it will  always find reasons against it. Surely ineligibility to bear arms for the  country in a time of emergency is a  solid reason for such a tax. If a poll  tax, such as I propose, be not imposed, all plans for helping .our own  working classes may be likened to a  man trying to empty a well fed at  the bottom by an inexhaustible spring  The more we improve the lot of our  people, the more ill-paid foreigners  will come here to knock down thc  rate of wages.  "Tlie other plan I propose is that  every town and populous county  throughout the British Isles should  acquire, either by arrangement with  the Governments of the various Dominions (especially Canada) or by  purchase, large estates, which, in  time of distress, could be systematically developed. Imagine, say, that  arid laying out, and tree cutting and  grubbing, and timber sawing, and  other work too varied to mention,  required to create homesteads on  such a tract of land. I suggest that  homesteads should be created, and  the whole scheme run on businesslike lines, the workers organized in  groups, and receiving food, lodging,  some pay, and shares to be exchanged  eventually for farms. All this could  be done, and the wives and little ones  looked after here until the men returned, or had prepared homes for  their families.  "It is not possible in a letter such  as this to outline details. The great  thing to consider from a financial  standpoint is, does land when colonized go up immensely in value or  does it not? Anyone who knows will  say it does. I could give innumerable instances, and all this appreciation takes place notwithstanding that  ; loans on land receive 6, 7, and 8 per  cent, interest.  "I do not suggest for one moment  that Canada should be swamped with  men who would rush into the towns  and lower the rate of wages for our  Canadian people���������������������������far from it. All  who go to the proposed settlements  should go under contract, and keep  to their agricultural communities for  a specified time. I would also suggest that on every estate there should  be practical Canadian farmers and  instructors, to advise and help."  some people; li__le sympathjnnfoulc.  be awarded them if legal action were  taken by home merchants to collect  accounts, and it should be done to  those who court the peril of the situation. There is not a merchant in  this town who cannot figure any cash  bill on a saving basis against the  mail order house. One never has the  "pleasure" - afforded him- of seeing  flour and sugar . shipped in. Why?  Because thc mail order houses could  not lay flour or sugar down in this  town anywhere near tlie home prices.  It is a shame and a disgrace to Canadian intelligence to presume that  thc mail order house is anything else  but a farce when it comes to equal  values and any material assistance  in building up the home country."

ENDERBY  The following excellent reasons are  given by the Publicity Department  why Canada should hold a great International Exposition in Winnipeg  in 1912:  Because the date selected for Canada's first International Exposition  is the centenary' celebration of the  first white settlement in Western  Canada by Lord Selkirk in 1812.  Because Canada has never had an  Exhibition of the splendid, rich resources of the Dominion, big enough  and broad enough <to fit the great-,  ness of the.country. v  Because an International Exposition is undoubtedly the best means of  advertising'to the world the advantages open in Canada for the investment of capital and for settlers.  Because the holding of an Exposition will show what Canada has done  and is capable of doing, thus adding  new strength and energy to.every  Canadian.  Because a definite invitation at a  definite date, inviting the world to  come and see for themselves what  Canada can do, will produce results  which will more than repay the put-  lay.  Because such an Exposition will  supply a concrete object upon which  all Canadians can unite in making a  worthy display. of the wealth and  worth of Canada.  Because National Expositions tend  to elevate and instruct all classes of  the community, thus creating a new  feeling of national pride, and interest  among our. own people.  Because an Exposition will bring  together all that Canada has to  show, which will be put into a space  where it will be presented in the best  possible way to the millions of people who will visit the Exposition.

Because the West is tue greatest  market the manufacturers of the  older provinces have, and by its development it will advance the trade  and commerce of all Canada.  Because the proposal to hold au  International Exposition at Winnipeg  in 1912, having been "placed before  the people and press of Canada, has  received the endorsation of general  meetings, Boards of Trade and of  editors throughout the Dominion.  Because it will create and open up  many outside markets for a great  variety of our products and manufactures in countries which at present  know nothing of our capabilities..  Because the most desirable of those  people who seek a new location, a  new purpose in life, wish, to investigate before deciding, and an Exposition will afford such people full and  accurate information at minimum  cost of money and time.  Because those who visit Canada to  see a great Exposition will see at  first hand the opportunities offered  by the several provinces through  which they will travel to reach the  Exposition at Winnipeg.  Because Canada is in its commercial stage of development, and nothing can do more to carry forward  this stage to a successful issue than  a great International Exposition.  Because hundreds and thousands of  come   to Canada to see  A writer in The Standard of Empire says: "It is impossible' to refer  to the opportunities for the profitable employment of capital in industrial enterprises in Canada without  at least a passing allusion to that  most controversial (in the Home  Country) of topics���������������������������Tariff Reform.  While opinions may differ as to the  desirability or otherwise of a change  in the fiscal system of- the Home-  Country, none can doubt the probability of its taking place, and that  at no distant date. Nor can it be  doubted that those who will have the  control, of the arrangements;, will  make it their guiding ���������������������������'principle to  foster trade relations between the  various parts of the Empire. Under  such conditions it is certainly not  difficult to imagine ��������������������������� that a further  great stimulus will be given to commercial activity of Canada. If such  a stimulus were given tomorrow, it  would be the United States capitalists who would largely benefit���������������������������and  ;'iustly���������������������������by reason of their enterprise  in investing capital in industrial concerns in Canada. It need not be so,  however, if English Capitalists will  only exercise a little forethought and  imagination, and, above all, if they  will only do at least one thing which  the United States capitalist has done  long ago, namely, investigate personally and thoroughly the opportunities offered atJ this time by Canada  for the investment of capital which  shall yield a rich    financial harvest,  wi cleft  and^shall also mean in-the  sense that the prosperity of Canada  means the prosperity of the Empire,  because the resources of the Empire  are invested in her undertakings.

TIGHTEST  OF CORNERS  TIMES WHEN TOURISTS   HAD  CAUSE TO TUEMULE.  Seme Hoi iduy-Makei.  Have Most  Unlooked-for ami Thrilling  A (I von. nt'c.s.  Imagine rushing down a.steep,  ice-clad road at a speed approaching that of an express train, and  with a dead man seated at thc  steering-wheel of the sleigh ! Can  ���������������������������any more horrible predicament be  tl reamed of?  In January, 1008, n party of four  tourists took a bob-sleigh up to  tlio Swiss mountain village of Lcy-  5-in, intending to run down to Sc-  pcy, three miles below. Their  steersman -was a Mr. Dcrron, who  was both capable nnd experienced. A mile they travelled in safety,  and then, just as tho sleigh had  reached its topmost speed, and the  white snow-dust was flying in fountains under thc screaming steel  runners. Mr. Derrcn's head fell forward. Thc pace had proved too  much for a weak heart, and ho was  dead.  A LIGHTNING SLIDE.  Thc other passengers thought  that he- had fainted, but, as they  were unable to reach tho wheel,  there was nothing for it but to trust  to chance. Down they ilow at ever-  increasing speed, missing two other  bob-sleighs by a miracle, through  the street of Scpcy like a flash of  lightning, and then tho end of their  carter came as ihey crashed down  upon a frozen pond. All three  were hurt, but happily no one was  killed.  People who spend their holidays in mountainous countries are  liable to 'find themselves in a tight  place just when they least expect  it. Gaping Ghyll, that vast cavern under Ingleborough Mountain,  piescnts no special dangers to the  man with a cool head and strong  muscles. It was simply a sudden  rainstorm which, a few weeks ago,  imprisoned several members of the  Yorkshire Ramblers Club in its  black depths.  A small stream pour3 through  the cavern, and this, swollen by  thc heavy rain, rose so fast that  it.-.blocked tho only exit, so that  the explorers were obliged to remain where they were for nearly  twenty-four hours before the water  subsided enough to allow them to  crawl out.  Of all ghastly predicaments that  a man could find himself in, nothing could be much more dreadful than the experience of Mr. W.  M Crook. In company with two  ladies, hc was walking across the  Lower Theodulo glacier, with the  surface of which hc was quite familiar, when all of a sudden thc  snow gave way beneath him. and  he found himself dropping downwards  through  space.  'TWIXT LIFE AND DEATH.  He was conscious of flying dovyri  between two dark walls of ice, while  bioken fragments of snow nnd ice  _rushed past him.     Then    ho   was  HiToTFgTiT TfpTv iLlriTcTa^h^arid'fmxmt  himself on a ledge.   Below him the  black rift sank to unknown depths;  far above a streak of blue showed  the sky.  Hc had fallen  sixty-five feet!  His head was bleeding badly, but  he did not lose his presence of  mind. Hc plastered the wound up  v.ith  snow,   and,   with  his ice-axe  ��������������������������� which had been slung round him  ��������������������������� began cutting footholes. But  the cold of a glacier rift i.s appalling. Tho axe slipped from his  .numbed hands, and rattled down  into the bottomless blackness below.  Soon the deadly cold  chill him to the bone,  i.ot move, for hc was  cling for dear life. He  up hope, when at last help, brought  by one of his plucky companions,  reached hini, and hc was hauled up  to safety.  Next to mountains and caves, it  is the seaside holiday-maker who  meets with the most unlooked-for  no"ventures. Ono fine evening in  September, 1907, some fifty pleasure-boats were sailing or rowing  en the Firth of Clyde, off Dunoon,  when a sudden gale swept down the  1906, two hundred of New York's  smart set wero in one of these���������������������������a  great, two-storied structure ���������������������������  watching some swimming races,  when a furious thunderstorm broke.  IN THE NICK OF TIME.  A tremendous squall struck thc  house-boat, there was a sudden  rending of overstrained hawsers,  and thc whole thing was adrift,  and swirling down the river on a  rapid ebb tide.  Some, who could swim, sprang  into thc water and gained tho  shore; thc rest went driving down  towards the harbor, screaming in  panic- Thc overloaded structure  rocked horribly, and disaster seemed certain. Ifc was tho proprietor  of a. bathing pavilion who came to  thc rescue. Springing into a petrol-  launch, he went in pursuit, overtook tho house, made ifc fasfc to- the  launch, and triumphantly towed it  ashore.  Afc Paris, M. Vcrnanchct and a  party of nine holiday-makers had a  most exciting adventure a .year or  two ago. They had hired a balloon  and, after .a delightful six hours'  trip in mid-air, were warned by  the increasing darkness that it was  time to descend.  On attempting to open thc valve  and let out the gas, the valve-rope  broke, and when night_ came the  party was still in the air. Fortunately, cooler air contracted the  gas, and the balloon slowly sank.  They paid out the guide-rope, and  at last, the grapnel caught in a  hedge. Some peasants came to  the rescue, and with difficulty thc  balloon was hauled down.  UPS AND DOWNS.  Nine of the party gob out, but  cue of M. Vernanchet's sons, thinking he would let out the gas,  climbed to the valve. There came  a little gust of wind, the ropes  slipped through the hands of the  holders, and up shot the balloon into the darkness, with the young  fellow clutching desperately to the  broken valve-rope.  Naturally, his friends gave him  up for lost. But thc boy had plenty of pluck and resource- He managed to get out a knife, and cut  the envelope, and evcntiially came  lo ground some ten miles away,  half frozen, but unhurt.���������������������������London  Answers.

The first German Dreadnought  .latlleship, the Wcstphalen, is now  completed and has left tho shipyards of the Weser Akticn .csells-  ichaffc for the open 'sea. Sho was  ilaid down in 1907 and was launched on July 1, 1903. According to  the German naval programme she  was to havo been completed in  November next, so that her construction has been accelerated by  .fully two months, says a Berlin  letter.  Like her sister ships thc Rhein-  land, Poscn and Nassau, the West-  jphalciv hais a displacement of about  J7j9G0 tons, with a length of 472  .feet and a beam of 82 feet. She  draws 26 feet o'f water and has a.n  indicated horse-power of 2<1,000,  (giving a speed of 19.5 knots.  She has a complete belt of Krupp  ���������������������������steel 11.8 inches thick amidships  and tapering to 6 inches forward  and 4 inches aft. Her coot is approximately ,9,250,000. The West-  ���������������������������phaleii and her' sister iships are destined for the North Sea, their  draught making i'fc impossible for  them to enter the Baltic through  the Kiel Canal.  A Wilhclmshaven correspondent  dealing with Germany's extensive  n'aval programme says that the  .Ersatz Oldenburg, which was laid  _;own in the first week of October  last, will be launched at Wilhelm-  .hafen in the presence of the Kaiser on September 18 or 25. Tho  completed displacement of the ship  will be 19,000 tons���������������������������that is, slightly less than that of the British St.  Vincent.    She will, however,  BE MORE POWERFUL.  For her armament and that of  her two sister ships, the Ersatz  (Siegfried and the Ersatz Beowulf,  which are to be launched ia Noi-  ���������������������������v-ember the German Admiralty has  for the first time since 1880 adopted the 12 inch gun. Not only will  twelve gun's of this calibre bo  mounted as compared with the ten  cf the St- Yin-cent, but the guns  are far more powerful than those  of the British ship.  The shoAl of the St. Vincent's 12  inch gun weighs 850 pounds. That  of the German gun will weigh 982  pounds.   While the ten guns of the  iS-fc. Vincent will give her a fire of  .,500 pounds the Ersazt Oldenburg  will have a fire o������������������f 11,784 pounds.  Jn addition the German ship will  .carry twelve 6.7   inch    guns (132  fpound  shell)  and  twenty-two  4.1  inch 38 pounders.    The total gun-  ,fire of the Ersatz Oldenburg   win  amount to 14,204 pounds, compared with    the    St.  Vincent's 9,120  pounds.    The Ersatz Oldenburg is  to be pushed forward in order that  she may be completed by January,  :1P11.   This is six months before the  (date oiiginally set.  The Nassau is now nearing com-  -ip!efcLon=^and=wull_b.o^w-ell^oa^w'-ith_  ���������������������������her trials before tho end of the  .year. The four ships of the Nas-  _au class will be armed with twelve  11 inch, twelve 5.9 inch and sixteen 3.4 inch guns. The weights  of the shells fired from these guns  ���������������������������are 7G0 pounds. 121 pounds and  20 pounds respectively, so that thc  total weight of metal discharged  nn one round from all guns would  .be  10,784 POUNDS.  (The fire oi the Dreadnought, wilh  itcn 12 inch and twenty-four 3 inch  ljuns, is 8,788 pounds, and of the  _ t. Vincent class, now completing  with ten 12 inch and twenty 4 inch  guns, 9,320 pounds.  The displacement of thc Na .sau  io a couple of hundred tons less  than that af the Dreadnought and  .1,500 tons- less than ithe St. Vincent's. Tho Nassau's twelve 11  inch weapons are paired in turrets, two being placed on the centre line, one forward and one aft  and one at each corner of the superstructure. All the big guns are  on tho same level.  Tho Nassau can bring eight guns  to bear on .the 'broadside and six  .ahead or astern. In addition she  lias six 5.9 inch guns -mounted on  each side on the main deck behind  thick armor.  According to official information  the removal of the first squadron  _f the German high sea's fleet from  Kiel to Wilhelmshaven will take  place on April 1 of next year. As  the result of this disposition the  (defence of the latter, port will be  strengthened by eight largo battleships, two armored cruisers and  three smaller cruisers. The garrison is also to be increased by 8,-  COO'men. Wilhelmshaven will thus  he rendered one of the strongest  bases of the German fleet.  Ifc is now nearly two years since  ���������������������������the German Government decided  .to remove the .naval base from Kiel  t������������������- Wilhelmshaven, which possesses three dry docks capablo of ac-  ���������������������������commodating t;h0 largest battleships. The workshops of the imperial dock are perhaps thc finest  of their kind in the world, being  fitted with thc best machinery that  engineering skill has been able to  devise-  Wilhelmshaven has long been t.hc  headquarters of thc German tor-  rpedo d'estroyer flotilla. For some  years extensive alterations and improvements have been carried out  there.  A SUM OF $7,500,000  has been expended upon thc docks,  ;whiie almost a. nmeh is to be devoted to the cutting of a channel  (through the island of Sc.hleusscn,  whicli .lies at the mouth of the iliar-  ,bor. The enclosed harbor has an  ni ca- of 170 acres. It is the Government's intention to concentrate  _he greatest strength of the. navy  at Wilhelmshaven, leaving the  weaker units in the Baltic.  The British Government has just  if .sued a statement giving a -return  of tho naval expenditure of the  pmicipal naval Powers, showing  thei<r total expenditure in each of  the last ten years, their expenditure on newr construction, including armament, and the amount of  their new construction in cac-h  of thocsc years expressed in tonnage. Making a contrast between  1900 and the present year the figures of the total naval expenditure  of the several powers are very remarkable as an indication of the  progress of naval competition.  1900.  1909.

The 'famous Sarab, duchess of  Marlborough, was tho shrewdest of  women and hardly anyone ever got  the better o'f her. The fashionable  dressmaker of the day was a Mrs.  Buda, and the duchess sent her  some costly material to be made  up into a court dress. When the  gown came home her grace noticed that the amount of material  used did not correspond with the  quantity sent, and resolved to punish the fraud. Mrs.. Buda was  wearing a beautiful diamond ring,  which the duchess pretended to  .greatly admire, and she asked the  flattered dressmaker to- lend ifc teller in order that she might ha .ve a  similar ring made. In a few- days  Mrs. Buda received a letter from  the duchess, saying that she held  the ring as a. pledge for the yards  of brocade that had been taken  fr.ni the piece sent for her,gown.  Needless to say, the brocade was  speedily relumed, and thc ring was  placed on 'Mrs. . uda's finger, the  enrcastic duchess improving the occasion with caustic remarks on the  offence.  FRENCH WEAPON SI0LEN!  IMPROVED      MACHINE     GUN.  SOLD TO GERMANY.,  Deserter   Urged io Crime hy   A _*  tress���������������������������Acted as Spy for German Authorities.  Although thc French military authorities have denied that thc improved machine gun stolen from  thc barracks at Ghalons-sur-Marno  has left- the country, it is now definitely established that thc gun  is safely in possession of the Germans.  It is stated that a deserter  named Deschampa quietly took tho  train for Strasbourg with the machine gun, minus only its stand,  .wrapped up in brown paper. Ab  the frontier he at first told the German Customs authorities^ that the  package contained old iron, but  then called a policeman and said-  '*T have-got a-machine gun; take  mo straight to the police station."  This was done, and Desoha'mps  was promptly placed in communi-  cstion wi tli the German military  authorities. From this point all  trace of Deschamps has been lest,  but it is said that he has been seen  :n Metz, and is now living there.  A further sensation has been created at Chalons by the arrest in a  cafe-chantant of an actress > who  is believed to havo been the instigator of Deschamps' treachery.  The woman is said to be a regular  agent of the German qspionage organization, and to have lured many  other young French soldiers to  ���������������������������commit the most terrible of crimes  .towards their country.      ,   .  ���������������������������'   OTHERS ARRESTED.

Sho  made, the soldier's acquaintance, .  ,and once she had him in her power  began to arouse his jealousy by suggesting tha. he had not enough  .money for her.  Deschamps tried ,'by hook or by  crook to satisfy her demands, and  finally, when he had failed to do  so. she put it to him that he might  easily obtain tho necessary money'  by selling French military information to the German authorities:  Once Deschamps had started on. the  down grade it was comparatively  easy to persuade him to go so far  as to desert and steal the machino  gun.

One Reason Why England is Free  From Anarchists.  The reason that Anarchist crimes  are practically unknown- in England is that the Terrorists have  agreed to regard Nthat_ country as  a sort of haven of refuge, and,  therefore, to be kept neutral.  One of the few Anarchist outrages which came anyway near being actually carried out, was that  planned by Martial Bourdin, a  Frenchman, who, some thirteen  years ago, tried to blow up the  Greenwich Observatory. His bomb,  however, exploded . prematurely  and he was the only person to suffer, being killed on the spot.  At Walsann, in 1891, a plot was  matured by . alien Anarchists to  blow up public buildings and assassinate certain officials, and  bombs were made.and filled. But  the police' were kept well informed,  and pounced upon the gang, most  of whom were sentenced to long  terms of imprisonment. Aboutthe  same time an Italian Anarchist,  named Polti, together with a companion, was captured in London  with an uncharged bomb in his possession. These two also went into  penal servitude for'lengthy periods.  Occasionally, too, Anarchists  have fallen out amongst.themselves  while temporarily resident in England, with the result that murder  has been committed. A typical  case of this class of crime occurred  a few years back, when an Anarchist shoemaker, resident in Clerk-  en well, London, was assassinated  by a "comrade." whom he tried to  -i nd u ce=���������������������������to���������������������������mu rd e i__.M_r.-.J.osepjy  Chamberlain.  Thc wholesale murders of Armenians at Peckham, too, in 1903, by  thc Terrorist Dakran, may be properly relegated to this category,  for victims and assassin were alike  Anarchists in everything but name.  Relief for Suffering Everywhere.  ���������������������������He whose life is made miserable  b> the suffering that comes from  indigestion and has not tried Parmelee's Vegetable Pills does not  know how easily this-formidable  foe ean be dealt with. These pills  will relieve where others fail. They  are the result of long and patient  study and are confidently put forward as a sure corrector of disorders of the digestive organs, from  which so many suffer.  The ever-burning question,  "What shall we do with our boys?"  seems to be satisfactorily answered in the following advertisement,  which appears in the window of a  butcher's shop:��������������������������� "Wanted, a respectable boy for beef sausages."  Thc microscope in thc hands of  experts employed by thc United  States Government has revealed  thc fact that a house fly sometimes carries thousands of disease  germs attached to its hairy body.  The continuous use of Wilson's  Fly Pads will prevent all danger  ol infection from that source by  killing both the germs, and thc  flies.

At thc death of the Duke of  Wellington the whole Diplomatic  Corps was invited to the funeral  at St. Taul's. The French Ambassador, on receiving his invitation, was very much upset. He  hurried off to his colleague of Russia, Baron Brunnow, and confided  to him the difficulty in which hc was  placed.  "Thc Queen," hc said, "expects  us to go to St. Paul's, to tho funeral of the Duke of Wellington.  How can I go, considering iho. injuries which the Duke inflicted on  mv country?    What shall I do."  Baron Brunnow listened gravely  to his colleague's exposition and  then replied: "As the Duke is  dead," he said, "I think you can  safely go to his funeral. if you  were' asked to attend his resurrection, T should say refuse the invitation."

I  its  The worst feature of a divorce is  that it usually results in two more  marriages.  AN EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE  The second company to play in Enderby sent West by C. P. Walker, of  Winnipeg, was the aggregation headed by Wm. Yule and Miss Eddy, and  playing Shakespeare's "As You Like  It." They were seen in K. of P.Hall  last Monday evening. The house was  crowded, and the performance, from  first to last, eminently satisfactory.  In spite of the small stage, and limited facilities for putting on a performance demanding scenery, Mr.  Yule and assistants improvised, settings so that the stage effect was  very pleasing. The players, one and  all entered heartify into their parts,  and gave the audience as true a portrayal of this standard Shakespearean comedy as one my see anywhere.  It was a royal treat to hear again  the lines of this greatest of English  poet, and to read life's story as the  well-rounded words fell from the lips  of Rosalind, Celia,, Orlando and the  inimitable Touchstone. It was a performance that Enderby is the better  for having seen. c  BEAUTIFUL SENTIMENT  Robert Taylor, that gifted editor,  and at present United States Senator from Tennessee, has written at  least one piece that will live long  after he is dead, and add to the  world's store of happiness when he is  forgotten. "I would rather fill my  purse with money," says he, "and  keep its gates ajar to my happy girls  while yet they linger under my roof  than to clutch it with a miser's hand  until all the harpstrings of youth are  broken and all its music forever fled.  I would rather spend my last nickel  for a bag of striped marbles to gladden the hearts of my bare-footed boys  than to deny them- their childish  pleasures and leave them a bag of  gold to quarrel over when I am dead.  I abhor the pitiless hawk that circles in the air only to swoop down  and strangle the song of thc linnet  or bury its talons in the heart of the  dove. I despise the soulless man  whose greed for gold impels him to  strangle thc laughter and song of his  own family."  2  ANNOUNCEMENT  GARDOM BROTHERS  associated with  t CEPERLEY, ROUNSEFELL & CO., LTD.  have opened their office  on  the corner  of Granville and  Robson Streets, Vancouver.

Recently he delivered 13  lectures at Crystal Palace to.crowded  houses. Of the fruit which carried  off these prizes, at least 75 per cent,  was from the Okanagan.  in large figures.
