Chas.W.Little has been busy the past  few months in spreading abroad information about the District, and as  a result he has hundreds of enquiries  coming in weekly looking for further  information. Many.homeseekers, and  five big colonization companies, have  signified their intention of coming in  to see the country as early this year  as weather conditions will permit a  thorough investigation, and Mr. Little in convinced that this will be the  best year the District has had for the  placing of the right kind of settlers  upon   much   of   our  idle land.

It  ONE   MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  ���������������������������*v^v__.���������������������������~  "_ bcl  fr_  S  HE most   difficult' part of a j  newspaperman's   ��������������������������� calling,     is  that'of   being   true to "himself  in his relation to   the community he  is exerting his best effort to serve. I  In every   community   where a news-1  paper is   published   will   be found a f  number of    persons   who believe the  newspaper is, or should be,- a mouthpiece for    them    or   their particular  sect, party or   creed.     They are thc  prevailing power   for   what they believe to    be    the community's   good,  and, being   sincere   in   their convictions, they fail jto see why the newspaper should see things in any other  light.   These   people are more selfish  than    sincere,    though   they   do not  think so.     The    newspaperman    who  sees in his position   something more  than   a   mere   machine,   and   whose  paper, to him at least, is something  higher than a party organ, will not  permit the opinion of any part, sect,  person or party in the community to  become his guiding star.     He knows  that if he does so, it will not be long  until the greatest gift God has given  to man���������������������������that   of   freedom���������������������������will   have  been taken from   him.    Man is a peculiar animal.   Let   him sectify, and  soon the sect that is strongest in the  cornVnunity will begin to assume the  position of   dictator,   and the back  bone   of   the   weaker   sects   will   be  b'ended to conform: to the bleat of the  bell-weather.   And the next step will  one of spineless manhood and in-  ���������������������������'sipid   womanhood.      Somebody   has  said that "the man who really succeeds   in.  journalsim,    as   in    other  spheres of-life, ..is    always, the .man  whose aims are high and whose resolution is firm."     Thc man who puts  aside his   ideals,   who abandons his  principles,  who sacrifices his convictions to serve   this   or that faction,  sect or creed,   may find a livelihood  .in   journalism,   but    never    by   any  chance docs he rise in it to a true  and    worthy   public   service.     "The  journalist worthy of the name," says  the same writer,���������������������������"the only journalist worthy of tlie name���������������������������is the man  who regards his work in the light of  conviction and  conscience as  his  individual   contribution   to    the activities of the world, who carries himself with an integrity which shows no  such   principle    as    concession,    who  makes no moral compromises."

Lady El ridge was a person of importance, Sir Ralph must not be  harassed at such a solemn time. A  certificate, sufficiently technical and  obscure, was granted.

I offered Dick Renwick refreshment. He took it greedily. Ashe  sat and drank I filled a bottle of  whisky for him to take with him.

She motioned him back. He paused in p.'iincd surprise. She looked  more    beautiful    than    ever.      .tie  But  tho  conversation   with    Elsie   longed to touch those red. ripe lips.  "All that is past," she said quiet-  room.  "A lady asking to sec vou, sir."  "Her name?"  "She declines to give it,'but her  business is urgent."  "Show her up."  Hc knew the sort.' A pertinacious  collector. Some deserving institution was in necessitous circumstances.  The entrant surprised hini. She  did not at nil conform to his expectations. Magnificent described her  beauty. Her imperious air heightened the impression. She was in  thc flush of mature loveliness. Her  physical charms were rich and full.  A perfect specimen of her sex.  "You wish to see mc?"  "Yes."  That wa.s all. Her silence amused  and slightly irritated him.  "For what purpose?"  "To tell you that Dick Renwick  was buried yesterday."  The brief sentence meant volumes  to John Smith. Whatever his emotions, hc controlled them well. Unwavering hc returned the woman's  searching gaze.  ".Dick Renwick was buried yesterday," he repeated. "Have you  exhausted your business when you  have made that remark?"  "Yes;  except  to  add  that I am  Dick  Renwick's wife���������������������������-and you are  Ihis murderer."  "1 am not."  "Uf course, I expected you to go  through thc    formality  of denying  it; but let me explain that I know  all   about you  and   Cardown   Jail,  about your    chance  , meeting  last  week and   the  appointment  in  the  lane.    In short, I know enough to  put thc noose round your neck.    I  won't do so���������������������������on ono condition. To  understand that condition you had  better hear my life's story.        My  name is Hilda Watson.   I was reared in affluence,  but poverty came.  Invent abroad as a governess. Dick  Renwick made friends with thc family and love to me.   Ho was fascinating   and impetuous.   I was young  and I yielded.    From   our marriage  day  my  life  v/as  full  of  remorse.  You know what the real Dick Renwick  was.     "He    fathomed    evcry  wickedness.    He  humbled  me,   degraded me.   We returned at last to  ______d0__ hc_ to sink lower.

Of course, thc idea was extraordinary. There could be neither love  nor sanctity in the affair. Still,  the woman was no mere adventuress. For the moment she was in  revolt against Fate. But, looking  into her clear blue eyes, John  Smith felt that by kindness this woman could be won. And whom-she  loved she wouid Jove to the uttermost.  On the other hand, her threats  had their effect. She firmly believed hc had murdered Dick Renwick.  Others would view the circumstances as she did. He might escape the  scaffold: he could not possibly escape the scandal. For Elsie's sake  he dare not raise ghosts from thc  past.  He was silent a while; then he  spoke deliberately:  "Apparently it is useless for me  to deny,, murdering Dick Renwick.  Your mind is made up on that point.  But you are driving a hard bargain  for me. Have you considered that  it may one day prove as hard a bargain for you?"  "I will'take all risks."  "Sit down, then, and let us tall  it over."  C  III.  Pray Heaven he didn't notice my remark."  He would have been disconcerted had hc heard his friend's soliloquy. ���������������������������  "Who is Lady El rid go? His patent attempt to coverup the remark  was suspicious."  Thirty year?; before Dick Renwick  and  John   Smiih  had  1,n"   r  iv-1-  constitutiouallv  "Why?"  he asked,  anxiously.  "You know our compact, and you  ask whv. You keep uu the pretence  well."  "I am not pretending."  "'I have come to restore to you  vour freedom."  "I don't want it."  "You have provided mc with a  home, supplied mc with money, permitted your daughter to associate  with me. You know what I am,  what I am capable of. I come to  you penitent. You have been kind  to me. and I shall not forget. But  to-night I shall pass out of your  fife as completely as I entered it."  "What of our secret?"  "It is safe with mc. Dick Renwick "richly deserved thc death you  gave him. No harm will come to  you through me." -  "Despite your vows, you might  betray me at any moment."  "Have you any fears?"  ".None."  "You trust mc?"  '^Absolutely."  His confidence compelled her  tears.  "Ere I go, promise to forget my  first mad visit to you. I extorted  your promise to marry mc.

The older woman's nature was rich  in that mother-instinct which the  younger woman longed for. John  Smith looked upo.'i Hilda Renwick  and marvelled.

Elsie's  joy in her father's old friend was  boundless. She made her her companion and confidante. Hilda Renwick secretly put forth all her subtle power, ancl Elsie Smith was  made captive.  It wa. one night when Elsie and  her father were sitting late and  alone together.  "Father," said Elsie, thoughtfully,   "I  am  not    sure that, you arc  cned to engulf her in an abyss of  degradation.    One day there came  a chance of escape.      Thc    woman  disappeared, only    one   man knew  whither.   And 1 am that man. Our  paths  crossed    years    afterwards.  Her beauty, gifts, and goodness had  won her another husband whom she  had never told of her former marriage.   She was his wife in love, but  not in law.      He lived    and  died,  however, radiantly happy in his.ignorance.    There  was one son,  for  whom the woman chiefly'lived. Her  life was happy, peaceful, and without remorse.   She thought thc. dead  past   securcjy   buried.     Suddenly,  one night, her Husband, whom sluf  had  counted  dead,   re-entered  her  life  and  stood    in    her  presence.  That  woman    was    Lady  Elridge.  That man was Dick Renwick."  Silence and eager searching of  eyes. John Smith waited for thc  white-faced woman to speak.  "I am not Dick lien wick's widow?"  "No; since" "vo.u never were" his  wife."  "Thank Heaven for the strange  story."  "Of which you have yet to hear  the strangest part.

Mrs. It. Fisher,. Coates.  Mills, N. B., says: "Sometime ago,  my system was in a very anaemic  condition as tho result of an internal hemorrhage caused by an accident. Though I had thc services of  % skilled doctor for a time, I did  not recover my strength, and gradually I grew so weak that I could,  not do any house-work. As I  seemed to grow Bteadily weaker I  became much discouraged, for  previous to -my accident I had al-.  ways been a healthy woman. About  this time I received a pamphlet telling me of the strengthening powers of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I  procured a box at once and began  uswg them, when they were gone  ; got three boxes more, and by tho  _me I had used these I found myself somewhat stronger and my appetite much better.

When boiling cauliflower, place  the head downward and cover well  with-wnter.- It will come out much  whiter than if exposed to thc air.  To purify bacon and ham fat, sot  or the stove with as much cold  water as fat, let it come to a boil,  then set aside to cool and remove  the layer.of fat. Repeat this process, using fresh water each time,  till the water is clear. Thc fat will  then be free from smoke or salt,  and can be used as lard.  BABY'S OffiABLET.

Enderby  OUR LUMBER INDUSTRY  That the outlook for the lumber  industry in British Columbia for 1910  was never brighter is substantiated  by the president of one of the largest  mills in the province, -who makes the  following reference to the situation  generally: "The recovery from the  i sudden and all but calamitous depression which struck the United States  and Canada in 1907 has been, according to the best financial statistics,  nothing short of phenomenal. Nowhere in the world is a greater opportunity presented to benefit from  this recovery than right here in Canada. With the tide of immense immigration already well established, and  growing to such an extent as to astonish the most optimistic, the future is well assured. Farmers with  money, from the United States and  other conntries, are taking up lands  even to the remotest districts. The  influx is not restricted to a few favored localities, but is broad and general. With irrigation, and with more  diversified farming, the. danger of a  one-crop failure is being rapidly eliminated, thus establishing a greater j docks and naval bascs for the North  stability of prosperity. Every line of |Sea, and we want a large increase in  business will, of course, be benefitted jthe number of submarines and des.  by this stability, and not the least jtroyers; secondly,  of these will be the lumber business: '  Should this coming year give us a  crop as great���������������������������and it should be grea-  tal factor in the problem. The maintenance of the balance of power in  Europe is more difficult because the  military situation has changed.  "In thev Peninsular and Crimean  days our army was strong enough to  turn the scale.. But now the continental nations have all adopted universal military service, and our army  is too small to serve any useful purpose.  "Hence Great Britain has fallen in  the military scale.' On land she is  not even a second-fate power. Therefore, she has lost influence in the  j councils of Europe. That is one  great reason why we cannot depend  upon alliances. We have nothing to  offer our allies but our navy, which  cannot help" them.  "If we had an army of two mil-  j lions of trained men of the best class  and capable of rapid mobilization,  the balance of power would be safe,  and the German dream of invasion  would vanish into thin air.  "The needs, the immediate needs, of  the empire in face of���������������������������a great and  growing danger are, first, a large  vote for   naval   purposes;    we want  Closing Out Prices  Fruit and Ornamental Trees  Having disposed of our nursery grounds to be cleaned up by May,  I am prepared to offer special prices on all cash bargains.

Every British statesman of the first  rank today knows that it is true.  "Now the command of the seas will  not enable us to maintain the balance of power; a two-power standard  fleet will not enable us to maintain  the balance of power.  "Therefore the Blue Water theory  is wrong and Lord Roberts is right.  "We must have an army and an invincible navy.   We must have both.

Spread of Education ��������������������������� Danger of  Uplifting the Uninformed  Multitude.  Of no time in the history of thc  world arc so many signs of general  unrest recorded as those which  seem to confront us to-day, says tho  London Time.. At former periods,  when novel theories for actual revolutions disturbed the accustomed  order of things, their energy was  either confined altogether to particular States or groups of States,  or else it affected different countries and different peoples in succession. This was the case vith  even tho greatest among them.  Christianity itself permeated the  Old World very slowly, and if the  .rise of Islam was more rapid, it vas  restricted to the lands open to the  aggression of the Prophet ancl his  followers. The conception of modern nationalities and of the sovereign national state spread rapidly  among the sovereigns and the  statesmen of "Western Europe when  once it had been evolved, but it  was slower in reaching the minds  of the people.  OTHER GREAT EPOCHS.  The  Reformation    never      really  got a grasp 071 the minds of tho Latin races,  find the French Revolution had at all times more enemies  than friends among the populations  upon which it imposed its yoke. In  1848 the  ferment in  thc minds   of  men was more widely diffused than  it   had been in 1830, but still it was  limited  to  a    certain    number  of  Western  European  States.    It did  not materially stir this country, and  it had no perceptible results upon  the Russians.    None of these movements after the birth of Islam made  itself felt directly in  Asia.      Indirectly the French Revolution helped to change the face of Sou tli and  Central  America,  hut the anarchy  which, long prevailed in the i .pub- f  lies carved out    of the ruin of Lhe  Spanish monarchy  did not for the  most part  react upon    either .Europe or North America,  save perhaps in some degree as a warning.  Now,  for the  first time,  the signs  of  social  and  political  restlessness  lowest and the weakest to the highest, that ihey should disappear suddenly and leave nothing in their  places. It is they which have moulded thc sense of duty in the populations where they are entertained,  and if they are violently overthrown  the feeling of duty may but too  easily go with them.  Enlightened reformers whose real  aim is the good of the people, and  not the satisfaction of their personal aspirations, would do well everywhere Lo bear in mind that they  are attempting to raise up multitudes far less instructed and intelligent than themselves. They should  endeavor to judge their projects  not upon their abstract merits in  an ideal society composed exclusively of tho intelligent and the unselfish, but as they seem likely to work  among average men and women,  with all thc natural weaknesses and  defects of average men ancl women.  If they did this, they would hesitate  long before they threw down ; until  they were quite convinced not only  that they could build up, but that  thc new building would meet the  needs of the tenants much better  than thc old.

"Suppose you were thc boss and  you had in your employ a- boy who  thought hc wasn't getting pay  enough, and suppose this boy  should get so dissatisfied over this  that it made him grouchy. Then  you'd sec him going around attending to his work all right, maybe,  but all the time half sullen over it;  nour faced, glum, dissatisfied and  showing that hc vas dissatisfied in  everything he did; grouchy and  nursing his grouch all the time and  making it plain to everybody and  making everybody in the place uncomfortable.

The Czar of Russia is said to be  one of the unhappiest of monarchs,  and he lives in continual fear of  thc anarchists' bomb. Since the attempt to kill Alexander II. by exploding a bomb under the dining-  room table at the Winter Palace,  it has been the custom at the Rus-  siun' Court to change the -dining-  room almost daily. This fact once  elicited an, amusing remark from  the Czar's littlo daughter, the  Grand Duchess Taliaua. One day,  when the Imperial dinner was laid  in the Czarina's boudoir the little  girl exclaimed: "Next time, I suppose wc shall clunch in thc bathroom !"

"I had been a sufferer from Rheumatism and Backache for a year,"  Mr. Cyr states. "My head also  troubled me and it was hard to collect my thoughts.

In regard to the comparative cost  cf the feeds it is stated in a bulletin of the Department of Agriculture that "under'the market conditions that prevailed during the experiment the saving from the use  of corn was very marked���������������������������approximately 10 cents a day for each  horse for the entire forty-eight  weeks.

On one night of bis return Mr.  Wilson was stealing carefully up  the front stairs, so that his wife  would not be awakened, wheu he  heard her voice, high and strained.

DIRECTORS WHO TRULY  DIRECT.  It is a well known fact that the  men usually selected to act on Directory Boards of Banks, Insurance  Companies and other Financial Institutions are men more or less in  the public eye men of large ability  and wide experience.  The very fact of their recognized1 business ability and breadth of  outlook makes them very desirable  acquisitions to such institutions,  and their sound conservative wisdom on matters constantly arising  have resulted, in the substantial  growth of most of our leading Institutions.  Criticisms have been made in the  past that some Directors, owing to  the fact of their many and varied  interests, are not really as thoroughly conversant with the details  ot the Institutions for . which they  act as thew should be, and to meet  criticisms some of our leading Canadian Institutions are attaching  a new Officer to their Boards of  Directors, called the Directors'  Auditor.  - The Traders Bank of Canada was  perhaps the .first institution to  adopt this new method_.��������������������������� Their Directors' Auditor is Mr. J. L. Willis,  a man for many years connected  with the Bank as a Branch Manager  and who is possessed of exceptional  ability and experience.  Mr. Willis's duties, as Directors'  Auditor, are to act for tho Bank's  busy Directors in the way of overseeing, investigating and reporting  or/ all matters that come before  them in fche regular way of business. He is responsible only fco the  Board of Directors and his work has  done a great deal in facilitating the  deliberation of thc Board at all  times. . ���������������������������  The progress made by the Traders  Bank in the last few y.ears has been  very gratifying indeed, both to their  Shareholders and manyxcustomers.

WALKER, Local Agent  MASTERING THE AIR  America's first aviation meet was  held at Los Angeles, Cal., from Jan.  10th to 20th inclusive, and prizes to  the amount of $45,000 were offered to  the contestants, $22,500 for a longdistance balloon race, and $13,500 for  dirigible balloon contests. It offered  the first opportunity Americans have  had to see aeroplane contests and  real flying by heavier-than-air machines. An eye witness of the many  events writes:  "I am perfectly fascinated by the  possibilities that are presented by  the attainments, even at this early  stage, of the flying machines. It is a  most inspiring sight to sec them  arise   and   fly   and    alight   just    as  gracefully and easily as any other  creature of the air. There seems to  be no limit to the reasonable possibilities of aerial navigation, judging  from the present stage of development. Of course there are knockers  and scoffers, just as there ever has  been since the world began, who say  it is only a silly fad and utterly impracticable, but there were probably  just as many to scoff at the first  steamboat and railway engine. I do  not see any reason to doubt that in  ten years' time air ships will be as  comnson as autos are today. Even  now the men who have these machines patented are beseiged with  orders for machines at enormous  prices.'  ������������������  . J |  I.  _v  ff  .1  If.
