One of the principal oi' these early  traders was Captain John -NCeares, who  built, the first vessel ever launched from  the shores of .British Columbia. It was  named tne Northwest America, and had  a capacity of forty tons, being designed  for the coastal trade.  It was in 17S9. during the trading ot  Captain "Meares/tliat the trouble with  Spain became acute. Spain set up a  claim to all this coast, aud being a  member of the.

In October, 17M. an agreement   was  reached, the principle article of winch  related  to the ownership of the  coast,  'and which read: "Jt is agreed that the  buildings   and   tract   of  land    on   the  northwest   coast   of   the   Continent   ot  America, or on islands adjacent to that  continent, of which Hie subjects of' JIis  Britannic'   -Majesty   were   dispossessed  about the  mouth of  April,  I'/SO,  by a  Spanish officer, shall be restored to the  said   British   subjects."      Spam   also  agreed  to   pav    compensation    for   the  damages sustained by  Captain Mearcs.  - To carry into effect the decision relative to the right of sovereignity and  other affairs at Nootka, which had been  agreed on and accepted by Great Britain  and  Spain,  Great   Britain  sent  edition  to  thc northwestern  ver, Canada's great western emporium.  A few days later Vancouver fell in  with two Spanish vessels, also engaged  in surveying the coast, and which had  come round from Nootka, on the western side of the island now called after  Vancouver. The officers of these vessels received Vancouver wilh great  courtesy and informed him that throe  Spanish frigates and a brig were awaiting him at Nootka.  Vancouver then set out for tho latter place, passing up the channel separating the island from the mainland,  rounding Cape Scott, the northwestern  extremity of tho island, and thence  turning southward to Nootka. There  he met the Spanish commandant of thc  marine establishment on the Pacific,  whose -headquarters were at San Bias  on  the "Mexican  coast.    Iiis name  was  Thc unfinished work on his book of  travel was completed by his brother  John, and in due time it was published.  A portrait of Vancouver, probably  painted by Lemuel .F. Abbott, was purchased in 1S7S by the trustees of the  British National Gallery. A few years  later a copy of this portrait was presented to tho Victoria Board of Trade.  It represents Vancouver in the uniform  of his rank, wearing a short, white Avig  and neckcloth, according to the fashion  of his time. Tho features are remarkably regular. The domc-liko head and  full, broad brow, together with the  rather "heavy jaw, prominent full chin,  and thin, tightly compressed lips, tell  of a. man of high intellectual powers,  unwavering resolution/ and force of  character. But it is by uo means the  face of a hard or cruel man.  And yet Vancouver was said lo have  been :i harsh disciplinarian. Lord  Camel ford, who served under Vancouver, complained of having been flogged  three times and then discharged, treatment which ho bitterly resented; but  Cainelford 's conduct seems to have  been insolent, irregular and insubordinate. Thrown on his own resources,  without the possibility of support, Vancouver may have thought strong measures necessary, as several explorers  have found from Drake to McClure.  Thc., agreement respecting the withdrawal of thc Spaniard.1! from Nootka  was finally carried out on March 28th,  1790,  Great  Britain   being  represented  by   boiling   a   few  potato   peelings   in  them.  oughly  by Lieutenant Thomas Pierce, of the  Marines, and Spain by General de Alva.

Canadian Government cutter on  the British- Columbia coast. Vancouver had instructions to receive from  Quadra, according lo the 'terms of the  agreement entered into by Britain and  Spain, the surrender of thc land and  buildings of which the British had been  dispossessed in 17S9. On the other  hand, Quadra desired delay as lie had  not received his special instructions  from the Spanish Government.  The two eommaudcrs soon came" to  an amicable arrangement. Jt was  agreed that fhe whole matter should  remain in abeyance until further instructions were received from their respective governments, and that in the  meantime tlie island which Vancouver  had just circumnavigated should for  the time being be named "Quadra and  Vancouver Island.''" Quadra with his  fleet then sailed for his Mexican headquarters, and Vancouver, after refitting, set sail ,for the Sandwich Islands,  where he passed fhe winter. The two  officers never met again,-for in March  Quadra died, deeply regretted by Vancouver. Jle was succeeded by General  Jose Manuel de Alva.

Most people talk about the Lhroiic  of Ku gland as if if were a special armchair on which fho King sat daily, but,  as a matter of fact, there is no officially recognized throne, and it has become  a metaphorical symbol of mouarchy,  just as "the Grown" has become practically captured by the law courts.  One would naturally, perhaps, look  for Ihe throne proper at Windsor. lt  surely should be the King's "Windsor  chair," and, as a matter of fact, there  ,is both a throne and a Ihrone-rooni in  the ancient fortress and palace, but it  is probably the very last chair our Sailor King would be likely to be found  seated upon it if one could pay.an  afternoon call. And, so far from this  throne being unique, there is actually  one at each of tlio .Royal palaces, and  it is probable that the one at Buckingham Palace is the more generally used,  inasmuch as most ceremonial occasions  -take place there,.'"

When washing valuable china or cut  glass it i.s a good plan to place a heavy  Turkish towol at the bottom of the  basin. This prevents all danger of fhe  china and glass getting chipped.  Wipe all knives in paper before washing them and they should be cleaned as  soon as washed by rubbing them with a  cork dipped in very slightly moistened  knife-powder, and then dusted.

The best way to finish oil  a machine seam is to turn the material  round and stitch back for about an inch.  This saves tying the threads, which take  up.a lot of time, especially if there be  many seams.  Most people find it rather difficult to  prevent the mats at sitting-room or bedroom doors getting kicked ont of place.  Try this plan. Sew a small brass ring-  firmly to each corner of the mat, and  screw two tiny round cup-hooks into  ���������������������������the corners of the doorway close to the  floor.. If the rings are hung over the  hooks they will hold the mats firmly in  their place, and, as there arc rings at  all four corners, each mat may bo "turned frequently, so that it may wear evenly. The hooks must be very small and  rounded, so that dresses .will not catch  in them.  I  I  tinned during the preceding' season.

As a matter of fact, the official  throne of these realms is the one at  St. .Janus' Palace, the very ordinary-  looking brick building at the foot of  St. James' Street. All ambassadors arc  accredited to this court, and, in the  eyes of foreign governments, it stands  for the majesty of Britain. Its throne  is a very handsome one, and stands under a magnificent aud most ornate  canopy.  Though the throne at Windsor is but  littlo used, it is unique in one respect.  It is really an Eastern throne, after the  style of the one wo read of in the records of King Solomon, for it i.s 'composed entirely of ivory, and was the  gift of one of thc Princes of India.  Tt would seem to have been the custom in ancient- times to crown kings  on a stone, for not only is there tlie  ancient Stone of Scone in the Coronation Chair, but visitors to Kingston-on-  Thames can see in the market place the  ancient Coronation Stone of England.  Why the Scottish Stone should be preferred to the stone upon -which Alfred  the Great was crowned is hard to say,  and why the one "should be housed in  the Abbey and the other exposed to the  wind and weather near Kingston's busy  market place is still more of a puzzle.  Surely that old stone is the true throne  of  England!  THE LOCO-WEED.  Loco is a pretty plant with white,  purple, and red flowers, whieh grows  in thc southwest.

'With these words,  Sir Edward Grey, British Secretary of Foreign Affairs, began an address to the House of Commons ou March 13th.  Tho occasion was thc debate over the naval estimates. Scv  eral references had been made to the prparations being made  at Washington for several months past by Ambassador Bryce  and Secretary Knox, for a general arbitration treaty between  the United States aud Great Britain. When Congress assembles in its regular session next December, Mr. Knox hopes  to be able to submit such af treaty to the Senate, proyiding  for goneral'and unlimited arbitration of all questions arising  between the two nations. Sir Edward referred back to President Taft's remarks/made on December 17th, at the dinner  of the American Society for tbe Judicial Settlement" oiV International Disputes, which were repealed upon several- other  occasions. Mi'. Taft said: "Jf we can negotiate and put  through a positive agreement ( with some other nation to  abide by the adjudication of an international arbitral court  in every issue which/cannot' be settled by negotiations, no:  matter what it involves, whether honor, territory or.money,  we shall have made a long step forward by demonstrating  that it is possible for two nation's, at'least, to establish between them the same system of due process of law that exists  between individuals under a government."      >.    -  The present treaty between the United States and Great  Britain excepts questions relating to the national-, honor,  "vital interests." and the rights of third countries, if such  are involved.-   * '- . ���������������������������,    ' - '  "    '  The. British Foreign Secretary, frankly "admitting his  realization ,of '.the weight and importance of bis remarks,  then gave the following views of what "British action might  be under the circumstances:      - ''.,"���������������������������  , -'"We* have no proposal before-us and, unless public-opinion rises to thc height of'discussing a proposal of-that kind,  it cannot be carried out.yBut supposing two of the greatest  nations of the world were "to make it clear to the whole .world  by'such au agreement that under'no circumstances' were' they  going to war' again, I venture to say that it would' have a  benefieient effect,  riii^  probabl  .No matter how deep-rooted the corn  or wart may be, it must yield to IIol-  loway's Corn  Cure if used as directed.  ineh'eieiit effect., .The nations that made such, an agreement  ight be exposed to,attack from* a third .power: J; This would*  ���������������������������obably lead'to .their following]-with an lagreenient, tV'join  each.'othei'. in-any'case w.liere one of-them had "a-quarrel .with  a third-'hation .which has .refused to arbitrate.���������������������������We-should be  delighted to;receive, such���������������������������a proposal.,, I should feeh;it some-'  thing.so far-re'aching-in its'consecjuencesrthat itzvequircd'not  only the signature 'of- bollugovcrnmerits but-the deliberately  Sir, Frank- JS'ewnos," publisher- of 'the Westminster Gazette  ..and the Strand Magazine,-who was* recently in Winnipeg and  .is tKis'wcok crossing the' ocean on his way home is probably  -spending his'leisure moments trying to  figure out how he  7,is goiifg to square himself with his lady friends, iif thc home  land.'   He is a,bachelor and when ho'arrived in New York'  , bo was interviewed by" two lady reporter's.  Jn the answer to  the-question of ''what he thought of the American women,"  'he gallantly said nice things.   However, he wasn''t prepared  *��������������������������� to add'all the superlatives he fouud adorned the interviews,  forJ'on the strength of his few words, almost elaborate and  'complimentary  interview on rthc .American- woman appeared  i'n  the Gotham papers.        ' ' ' '  _ Tf h. .1. ALaxse, the caustic editor ot thc National .Review, is to-be believed, Canada lias-got;very much the best  of Australia in the matter of governor-generals. Lord Deu-  'miin, the new governor of the Antipodes,' he says, belongs  to that group'of English Liberal lords few of whom would be  worth" HO shillings a week lo any business man. "Their appearance in debate," he adds in the. April issue, "is not  'infrequently the signal for merriment, and the obiter dicta  of Lords Oarrington and Dcninan might be worth preserving." 'JTe adds that he hopes thc Australians will be able  to  take him seriously. .  The members of tho Winiiipog Dickens Fellowship will  be interested in learning that thc agitation in England  against, tho gale of Dickens Memorial stamps has resulted iu  au entire change of the 'character of the memorial. Tt is now  officially declared that the money will be devoted to the promotion of the copyright bill. This, however, does uot satisfy  thc M.A.P. which has been leading the agitation against the  itamp fund.    The M.A.P. says:  "The best course that can now be taken it; that the  issue of these stamps be suspended, that a detailed and clear  ���������������������������w-<-oimt of fhe money received for them should be issned,  ~tk:it~the allocation of'lhe~irioney~shotild be arrived at promptly, and fho affair cleared up with as little disturbance as may  li*.  "To allow the enterprise to run on amid a mass of obvious absurdities, contradictions, rocriminations, and explanations, without a single definite hint as'to what is to be done  with the money, would be most unfortunate; and oue reason  why I have dealt plainly with this matter is that the idea of  issuing stamps on author's books is a most dangerous precedent, which,'unless checked, is certain in the future to be  imitated  in  irregular ways."  *    *    *     ������������������  Tke coming visit, of the governor-general recalls an ex-  pcrieiiec a local officer had upon the occasion of a former  visit of Rarl Grey to Winnipeg. The oflicer in question was  ai the reception" committee and was a little late getting  down to the station, ne found the station room so crowded  that ho couldn't make his way to thc platform. Ho thought  possiblv he could get through tho freight sheds to the platform and found a door open. A minute later a careful employee happened along and closed the door. Thc officer,  plump*   and   spurred,  fouud   himself  locked   in   tho   freight  sheds*. He tried every egress; all were locked and it looked  ���������������������������is If he would not only miss the reception, but havo to spend  ���������������������������a night in the sheds. Ho-was-growing desperate,-.-when,- by  mere chance, a railway man turned up for something ho  had forgotten, and the excited officer was able to reach the  loeal staff.just as tho train pulled in.  Tho'signifiance-and'importance of these-remarks'by',Sir  Edward Grey,'; were, at once ,recognized  all.ovcr'-'the'world.  Here we have'not abstract forms of purely theoretical propositions,  but,' the   deliberate. utterances   of two ' responsible  statesmen occupying the-* highest position in "their respective"  countries in regard to the-subject under, discussion. , "..While  relating.to'an existing situation; they'outline practical ."measures bearing, not only, on 'that situation, but foreshadowing  a comprehensive policy-for dealing-with ���������������������������international differences for all time.    The British, press heartily''supports the  Foreign  Secretary in, his point' of view. 'Sir Edward,--however, took���������������������������early occasion to'make'answer to'the inferences  widely"circulated in'the press and on. the platform that his  ideas foreshadowed a formal alliance between Great Britain  and the Untcd States.    At "the annual dinner of the International Arbitration League, in "London, on March 37th, Sir  Edward disclaimed any intention of conveying the idea that  a formal-alliance was contemplated, but said further:  -   "It"a general arbitration-treaty wero made between two  great nations and became firmly rooted in the'feelings of the  people of both countries, and if one of them was in thc course  of_ time made tho object of an attack in a dispute with a  third  power, in which-arbitration  had  been, offered  to and  refused  by the third power, certainly. I think, there would  be a strong  sympathy  between   the  two  powers  who  had  made the general arbitration treaty.   But that is a matter  which depends ui)on_pub]ic_opinion .and-in-which-pnblie-npiii--  ion will take care of itself.    .  -.    .    If au'arbitration treaty  is made between two great countries on the lines sketched  out as possible by the president of the United States,-let it  be done between tho two powers concerned without arriere  penseo, but don't let them set narrow'bounds to their hopes  of the benefieient results which may develop from it iu the  course of time���������������������������results which  1 think must'extend far beyond the two countries orginally concerned.    .    ,t   .    To introduce any such conditions or stipulation into an arbitration  treaty would impair the chances of it here or elsewhere,    It  might even lead other countries to suppose that the arbitration .treaty .between' the two powers-was'directed against one  or more of the other powers.    That would completely spoil  its possible effect in mitigating tho general expenditures on  armaments."  In semi-official replies to Sir Edward's'speech, made public in tho parliaments of Germany aud France, cordial support  of tho genera] idea of the Taft-Grcy proposals i.s evident,  Mr. Balfour, leader of the opposition to the government in  the llonse of Commons, "amid cheers such as have been  rarely heard in the Lower House of Parliament," pledged  his hearty support to Sir Edward. The French Chamber of  Deputies has gone even further. It has decided to call upon  the government to invito tho cooperation of the other powers,  in the discussion at The Hague, of the questions of simultaneous disarmament. On March 10th, thc International  Peace Bureau, with headquarters at Borne, Switzerland, of  which the United States is a member, sent out a circular  letter to all the minister of foreign powers concerning this  question of thc limitation of armaments as proposed in the  resolution adopted by the last session of Congress: Baron  d'Estouruclles do Constant, the eminent French worker for  international peace, paid a visit to thc United States last  month, and made a number of stirring public addresses.  Baron de Constant is a member of the French Chamber of  Deputies, an officer of the Hague Court of Arbitration and  a winner of the Nobel peace prize.  COMBATING  THE  SLEEPING  SICKNESS  The work of the British government  in .conjunction with the Royal Society  in connection with .the eradication of  the sleeping sickness has been attended  with complete success, two camps having to be closed owing to the demise of  all old patients suffering from this  scourge, and the absence of fresh cases.  The propagation of this epidemic Avas  attributed to ,the fly Glossina palpalis.  The districts which were known to-be  pestered .with this disease-carrier /were  carefully mapped out", and by careful  investigation it was found possible to  ascertain the regions of .its activity.  Owing to the rigorous methods advocated by the commission, and 'the energy  with which such were taken up it was  rendered possible to remove" the inhabitants from the suspected zones and  to stamp out the' ily by extreme mea's-  ures.        . -    -  Just recently, however, it has been  discovered that the-Glossina'-palpalis is  not the only germ carrier. ^ A_death.occurred in England from the1'sickness,  and a minute pathological 'examination  revealed the disquieting news that tlie  parasite.'was - of a different character  from'that already ascertained: Inquiries showed that the victim had come  from Rhodesia, from a district 400 miles  south of the limits of the-haunts of.jthe  Glossina, palpalis, 'and.further investiga:,  tion resulted in the discovery of another  species of.: the tsetse Jly,'the Glossina  morsitans, as being, the vehicle of, infection, .while >'it * was "also" found' that  several'1 other persons'in Rhodesia-were  suffering from the;samc mala*dy.7Should  such/ultimately prove to-be tlie'case,  the 'definition ��������������������������� of-the localities'Javored  by the mofsitaus-.wilLbe.somewhat diffi-  cultV-a's itvisVfound. over a .much; wider  sfrca.y The J"region}-iu which-\the; case  occurred 'has-been "searched ,for the vpal-  palis:|but -without ^success.yylt "-is!inot  believed to' conic '"so. far "south, ��������������������������� so.Ttliat  suspicion, of the"morsitaus "seems tp-'be'  well-founded.."

Responding to a toast, he said he had never  been in Canada before, and he proceeded to give his preconceived notions of this country. He had no idea we had  such a fertile coutry and such magnificient cities. He had  regarded it as a God-forsaken wjlderncss, and in this connection he told a story of a man who had bothered the Administration for a foreign appointment. At last he was appointed  consul in some place in Canada. He was woofnlly cast down.  So were his family, who had always regarded Canada as a  God-forsaken country.

The Board of Works of the City of  Enderby has had printed notices prepared  which are to be posted  about  the  city    streets    where    ornamental  trees are yet permitted to grow, forbidding   the   cutting down or otherwise   destr6ying   the   trees  growing  thereon, and it is intimated that the  law against   this   form of vandalism  is to be more   strictly enforced.     It  is high   time'  this   step were taken.  The manner   in    which the telephone  pole gang were permitted to destroy  the trees along the Salmon Arm road  within the city limits is a standing  disgrace.    Two   years   ago the City  Council    looked    to  beautifying that  residential   thoroughfare, and laid a  pleasurable shady walk,  nicely gravelled,    from   the   Bank   of Montreal  property to the   residence of Mr.  R.  R. Gibbs, the intention being to continue it to the city limits.   When so  doing the birch   trees were left as a  boulevard between   the walk and the  roadway.      The   underbrush  was cut  out, and burned and the walk otherwise beautified.    It was, indeed, the  start of a very pretty avenue for an  afternoon's promenade.     Three weeks  of more   ago,   the   pole gang of the  telephone   company   came along and  razed to   the   ground   ever   tree left  standing   between   the walk,and the  road.      Such   brainless   slaughter of  Nature's beauty in this day and age  is inexplicable.   Common sense if not  decency   ought   tlo   have   had   some  bearing in the matter.  The trees now lie along the boulevard just as they were felled. The  least the city can do is to compel  the company to clean up the debris  now that the beauty of the boulevard  has been destroyed.  The complaint is heard from various parts of the town of beautiful  trees along the walks being topped  off near the trunk" and the brush left  lying just where it fell. In fact, the  telephone pole . gang have cut and  slashed their way up and down the  streets as if they owned the place or  were running a pole line in an unorganized community,- twenty miles  from Nowhere.  Scarcely .a citizen could hold back  admiration for "the excellent quality  of the telephone poles which have  been put up, but it, does seem that in  an organized community there are at  least a few other things to be considered than the convenience of the  telephone pole gang���������������������������or the beauty of  the poles.  we have known the Rev. Mr. Campbell to agitate the matter. Others  have done likewise. And still the  destruction has gone on; with no action looking to the abatement of the  vandalism. Just what amount of  intercession on the part of the Government would be necessary, or if  such intercession could be obtained,  is, of course, not yet certain. Still,  the object to be gained is of such inestimable value to the Valley that it  does seem most unfortunate that  some action has not been tnimxi before the destruction has gone st) far.  MUST DELIVER  BEAUTY OF THE CANYON DRIVE  The Canyon Drive from Enderby to  Hullcar has "long been considered the  grandest in the Okanagan. One" who  has travelled extensively and ridden  over" many of the famed wooded  drives of America and foreign lands,  has characterized the Canyon Drive  as one of greater natural beauty than  any of the famed ones, and declared  that with a little widening here and  there and the proper drainage, it  could be made a drive that would  be more of an attraction than_ all of  ���������������������������"oiir'==:agricuitural=-wealtli: "This, of  course, is putting it stronger than  most of us care to admit. And, yet,  there can be no denying the fact that  there is a beauty in the Canyon Drive  which to a great extent is lost upon  most of the people who drive over it.  It is a beauty that would attract a  great number of tourists if made  known. And it is a beauty that  should be preserved as an asset to  the. Valley, and something-of-lasting  pleasure to the coming thousands  whose faces are turned to the Okanagan as a home in future years.  But the beauty of the Canyon Drive  is fast disappearing. It traverses  the Indian reserve for most of its  length, and gradually these Indians  are cutting from the cedar groves  and wooded hillsides the stately trees  which so long have stood to shade  the drive and garland the roadway.  This year the slaughter of the cedars  for poles has been unusually heavy,  and the prevailing indifference to the  sacrifice is deplorable. Effort upon  effort has been made in the past to  rouse the people to the importance of  retaining the beauty of the Canyon  Drive.     Por more    than three years  Mayor Ruttan   was   right when he  said at the city council meeting last  Monday evening    that' the City must  have a certain set standard of labor  in the public improvement work now  going on, and every laborer, whether  drawing'  rock    or  'tamping   cement,  must either come up to the standard  or quit.      Mayor   Ruttan    and   the  Aldermen   engaged   with him on the  Council, are' giving to the city a deal  of time and thoug-ht to working.-out  the affairs, of the city in the. interest  of all.    They are giving to the public  interest time   and labor that if paid  for would cost the municipality two  or three hundred a month.     They do"  not want to   see   a fall-down in the  public improvement work now in progress, and they are taking every precaution to prevent th������������������ money raised  for the purpose   being spent without  value received.     And Mayor Ruttan  and his Aldermen know what constitutes a good day's labor.     Too frequently we see carelessness evident in  the expenditure    of public funds, and  a lack of watchfulness of the work in  hand.     But   Enderby is particularly  fortunate at,this time in having such  men as   the   present Council at :the  head  of affairs���������������������������practical men accustomed to handling such propositions  as the city is now engaged in���������������������������-propositions demanding quick action and a  firmness that knows no wavering,.and  does   not    quibble.       It is to. every  ratepayer's interest that the City of  Enderby be    given    a square deal in  the expenditure of   public funds, and  it is   Mayor   Ruttan's   policy to see  that good work   and full measure is.  forthcoming   for   the    high    rate of'  wages, paid.'- ,' " ,  -  List it with me now,  before my new booklet  is printed.

Many years, isn't it? On tbe  liritiidi Columbia coast, however, there  are still occasional tragedies' of superstition. At 1'rince ttupert I found  Daniel Wateboo, a poor old Indian, sitting on the edge of a canoe, an old  mau with a face li lets wrinkled leather,  overtauned, clad in the cast-otf clothing  of a settler, lie had come from the  homo village to see the Grout White  (Jhief.  To look at the consumptive old man  one would scarcely credit him with  witchcraft, much less with putting ,i  tribe iu spasms of fear���������������������������but if you ask  the Kitkatlahs they will tell you lhat  Daniel Wateboo was a devil. As a  matter of fact, all that the old man  did was to fall iu love with an Indian  woman. The thing occurred a few  years ago, Daniel pressed his suit with  all the vigor of a young man, but the  object of his quest did not reciprocate  his ardor, :iiki to influence h<*r the old  man'ie said, to*have practised witch-  craft.  G. W. Morrow, of Prince Rupert, was  Indian agent at  Port   Essiugtim at thc  time, and he knows the story. It aeeniw  that   Wateboo  was eeea  by the .tribesmen   in   his   eaRoe,  "peering  into"  his  death-box and muttering iucantatioB*."'  To  go  out  on  the  face  of the  waters  and   chant   is   the   favorite   mythed   df  the hamatsu or sorcerer.. The girl was  ono of those who saw Wateboo "making magic." and she complained to the  tribal  conncil  that  she  wav  being  bewitched.    The old  man  was prosperous  then, and tiro couueil was only too glad'  to have an oxcufto to seiae him.      The  councilors   thought   judictouii   handliug  might induce him to pay a few dollarn  for his release.    Ho was seiJiwl, bound,  nnd  throwu into a hut, where foT five  days he lay ou the hard pa������������������ and was  given little food.    Daily the councilors  visited him and, called upon hiiu to confess. They could get uo oonfemiou and  Wateboo was  hustled out and dragged  to  the  beach  where fce was  ti������������������d  to  a  stake   placed   at   the   low-water   mark,  one of the councillor!* toolti* rifle and  tb������������������y sat near to watch the waters,flood  in aud drown the sorterer.  - Ah Indian girl who taw the preparations hurried off in a eanoe to the settlement   at    Port    -Rasiijgton.       Indian  Agent   Morrow,   Magistrate  "Ford,   and  some  constables-, hurried   to  the  sccuo.  The)* found Wateboo with the tide surging about his waist, writhing in eft'orta  to  free    himself,    and  the    councilors  were arrested, taken to .Port Essington,  tried,   convicted,   and   fined   frow   $30  to k'GQ.    Even V/atelwo'did not eeeapo  the white man's justice. He was charged with being a sorcerer, aad admitted  that ho kad laid elaim to being a wizard, his claim being more in the nature  of a  bluff to induce.the girl to marry  him.    He was fined $75 and bound over  not to practice'witchcraft for ten yours.  A ������������������gw days afterward  Wateboo was  soea  in   hia canoe  off  the  village, and  ine of tho councillors took a  rifle and  wounded him, fie was taken to the Port,  Essingtou   hospital  for  treatment,  and  when he recovered he kept away from  tbe   village.     lie   has   also   abandoned  the   pretensions   of   being   a   medicine  man.   He is-now a fisherman.  "Do tho Indians still believe in  witch-era ft 1" I asked a misoiouary  from the Skcena Valley.  "Hvery village has its medicine man,  its tribal sorcerer," lie replied.  On'the river steadier S'keena  I mot a  who had bewitched her. With a final  howl the sorcerer dashed out of the hut  and sprang upon a young lad, the only  anch as the akia of the face and hands:  also cancer of the tongue, which is, of  course, readily accessible.      Cancer of  son   of  an   old   widow   woman   of  the aueh parts can be detected from its very  tribe.    The -boy   was   dragged   to   the curliest stages, and owing to the facility  couch of the sick woman, who admitted with which radium can  be applied, to  that she was bewitched, and while the them gives tho bot*t chance of a cure by  Indians erowdod into the hut, she point ,*~ '-"���������������������������--'-  ui;vber-=^ot^miiier-?-=^r.rid---trad&i'&=^tlroiiv  Hazel ton and heard more of these tragedies of superstition among Ihe northern Indians.

Iu vain the mother wopt and pleaded;  vainly the boy cried and repeated'again'  and again that he was not a wizard and  would not know how to make magic.  What eould they do against the deathbed confession of the woman that sho'  had been bewitchedf What could thoy  say against the death-bod accusation of  the bewitched Idootehmnn? From this  court, thero was uo appeal. While u  mother wept and pleaded au radian boy  was strangled to death, another victim  of  superstition.  Hit Hock- Webster of the Provincial  Police saved one Indian boy from the  superstitious tribesmen, who had appointed one of their number as lijs executioner. This brave, brought before  the odker at Telegraph ('reek, deposed:  "My name is Lolli;,am a Tuhltan Indian; I was. declared for hunting at  which Joe Cnllihau was to be disemboweled by mo and his body sunk in  Stikine River, for having bewitched a  girl of our tribe. I believe in witchcraft. My tribe has always believed  in witchcrnft and has executed witches.  t do not know it is wrong. I believe it  is right."    ���������������������������  An Indian girl had died in Lolli'b Tillage, and before' her death she had cried  out that wilcheM wero deseroying her  and that Joe Cullihan, an orphan boy,  twelve yoars of "ago, front one of the  coast tribes, had bewitched her. Joe,  of course.. denied the story; but tho  girl had accused him in her ante-mortem  statement, and no further ovidenco  was needed. Joe was tied up. by hia  thumbs wnile arrangements were'mado  regarding his disposal. I>oIli was appointed as executioner, and preparations were begun for the killing of the  wizard. LLeanwhito, Bullock-Webster  was informed,' and his officers hurried to  tho village and rescued Joe. ".Lolli escaped, but was later brought in by Indians for a reward.  Joe, the supposed wiKard, recontly  graduated from the Indian. school at  Motlakatlah, whore he was placed following the intervention of Rev. B. Ap-  pleyard, a miseiomry..  At Albert Bay,'-where the Kwankiutls  live   in   a   picturesque   cluster   of   un-  plmnbed   illaheos  on   the  shingle  of  a  pretty ������������������bwy,   a   people   more   backward  than   the  nortuerw   trit������������������esi:.cii.   1   fouinl  a ���������������������������stronger   belief   ta   witchcraft   than  was to be. found, anywhere else o-\ the  northern British Columbia coast. In the  villages from Cap������������������ Mudge to Port Rupert  the   brow.n, men   fear  each   other;  and taKe the .greatest pains to prevent  any. other member of the tribe;from obtaining  their  clothitig.     It  is. believed  that one who can obtain  possession of  soiled clothing or.'of'"some part of the-  hair, nails, etc., of a person, is able io  kill the-owner of. these parts-by witchcraft.    Tt  is considered  that  the  placing of the clothing of an enemy in a coffin would surely bring about his death. ���������������������������  I asked old Tsakwettie of the Deuek-  daws   how  the  witch-doctor  bewitched  the people.    He said: "First you must  get souie soiled clothing of the man who  is to be bewitched."- Then get a thighbone from an old grave.-   The bone  is  split and  some clothing  is  forced  into  the cavity.    Then tie the bone up with  sinews taken from a eorpso and  cover  ���������������������������the whole thing with gum from a spruce  tree.     To   make   good   medicine   four  bundles  of  this  kind   must  be  secured  aud placed in a box.   Bury the box deep  and light a fire over it.   Then the owner  of that clothing you take wi!l\fall siek;  and the hotter Ihe fire the greater will  be his pain.- ' Finally,- when  the l)6x is  hot,  he must die.    Only  one  way  ean  he escape.    If his friends find the box  before it burns aud take out the pieces  of   clothing   from   the   bones,   then   he  ���������������������������wilLget-lMelK"  Its 'effects.  "To understand howradium destroys  cancerous growths it is first of all necessary to have some idea of tho constitution of such tumors. When examined  under a microscope of high magnifying  power, cancers in general are ton ml to  consist of myriads of tiny 'cells,'more  or less globular in shape, which are in  an active state of multiplication; and  it is the remarkable rapidity of multiplication which characterizes these  'cells" that leads to tho formation of  a 'growth' or 'tumor.' No drug wo  know of has thc slightest effect ou active cancer cells, and nothing short of  actually burning them up with a red-  hot cautery or strong chemicals was  knowu to destroy them until the X-ravB  were discovered; besides the X-rays and  caustics, radium is tho only other substance we possora that has tho property  of being able to destroy cancer cells.  "This it appears to d������������������ in part by  stimulating the healthy tissue in  which a cancer iii growing to such ub  extent that rhey are able to gain the  upper hand; when radium is applied to  a cancer the normal '������������������ells' se������������������m to bo-  come imbued with new life, and the  invading caneer-cells ho longer have it  all their own wny. At the same time  the radio-active influence has a directly  destructive effect on the latter."  . ECCENTEIC SNOWFALLS  Miracles hapiien so often that we do  not ndtiee them. But The Observer,  true to its name, records some interest  ,ing ^observations on a reecnt 'phenomenon:  "If  it  wore     not  that a   newspaper  Iive������������������   for   today,   and   neither   for  yesterday nor tomorrow, a common occurrence like a fall  of- Mack snow  would  hardly have been wcrth recording.

We  can   match   the   portent   ourselves.  Some  years  ago   there   was   a   f>-ll 'of.,  'blood-rain' in Cambden square, due to  the   presence   of   ���������������������������warms   of   a   minute  moving water-plant, known as '$phooi>: '  elia pluvialis.'    An organism closely allied  to it gives the color to red snow,  which  has been  known  to fall at Car-  mola, iii Germany, in Italy, in  the Tyrol, and within the Aretic circle.

Only 125  tickets were sold from this point,  and usually the attendance is more  than double this number. But all attending the celebration from Enderby  returned with good reports of thc  day's proceedings. The procession  in the morning was a brilliant success  from the point of entertainment; the  decorations superb and "the management all that could be desire'd; except perhaps, on the sports' ground,  where satisfaction was not generally  expressed and some dissatisfaction  did crop up.  The morning procession was without doubt the largest that has been  held in the Okanagan, and the floats  were very handsomely decorated. It  was, in all, ,a most interesting part  of the day's events, and ,one freely  participated, in with a great'''deal of  pleasure by many' hundreds of '.visitors; fraternal societies, old timers  and veterans, with a division of the  school children ot ,the Valley which  in itself was worth a trip to Vernon  to witness.'-" " r  The sports began at 11 o'clock, and  continued throughout the afternoon  and evening. The football game,, the  baseball game and the lacrosse match  all were won by the Vernon teams.  The Enderby-Armstrong aggregation of football .artists put up a very  nice game but when it came to scoring the Vernon team had the best of  it by a safe majority. -     , ,  The Revelstoke baseball team did  not have a/look in.* They had goose  eggs, every inning up' to the last, and  then were given enough just to send  them,home happy.

I don't much believe iu  amateur detectives, but i. certainly have  hoard you favorably mentioned, hence  my sending for you."  Tho occasion i'or this interview was  certainly extraordinary and mysterious.  Precisely three weeks had elapsed since  tho discovery of a remarkable jewel  theft, carried out apparently, in broad  daylight, and in' a shop full of customers. The stones stolen were unset diamonds, such its are lcept by first-class  jewellers for making up into pendants  nnd other expensive articles of'a similar  nature.  According to the published reports,  one of the salesmen was showing a  prospective purchaser these gems, which  were, lying in a mother-of-pearl shell  ���������������������������for effect.' Something said to him caused him to turn his head. "When he looked  again, two of the Largest diamonds had  disappeared,   and   in   their  stead  were  - two common pieces of cut'glass, which  wouldn't have deceived a novice.  ^       Needless to say, the prospective customer was detained.      lie appeared a  most    respectable, " middle-aged    man,  with gold pince-nez, aud a sauve manner.    He was at first a little irritaatcd  at suspicion attaching to him, but,af-  '    terwards submitted to being thoroughly  ,   searched, supplied the authorities with  '   his 'name and address, and, in fact, did  all that could possibly be expected of  jhim.

Tho Hotel Splendide is one of thoso  luigo   modern   caravanserais,  especially  built for' the tourist, and  particularly  for the American  tourist.    Any afternoon, at tea time, the Palm Garden resounds with the laughter and chatter of  these 'transatlantic  trippers,  and with  their frank good nature it is no difficult  matter for the stranger to pick up' a  chance acquaintance.   I had ascertain-  , ed that Mr. Dallas still figured in the  hotel register, and it was my intention  somehow or other to get into convresa-  tion with him.  Pate favored me in a curious way._  It so chanced that I was lounging in  a chair near a remarkably pretty woman, who appeared to be alone.   Sho  once shot a keen glance at me, and then  became {occupied  again  with  her  own  thoughts.

For something to say, J remarked,  "That's the worst of these sort of  places, thoy are always so overcrowded." The stranger assented, and from  that our conservation drifted along thc  normal lines of haphazard acquaintanceships.  S'ho was waiting for her husband, so  she said; ho was a business man aud  conducted much of his business iu Paris,  though New York was their home. She  had only arrived in Fran'ce quifo recently���������������������������from America. Had f been at the  Splendide long?  So. I had only just "arrived from  Russia!  How interesting!' She had always  heard that St. Petersburg was a ���������������������������wonderful city. And the wealth of thc  Rusians! richer than tho New Yorkers,  wore they not?   And so on.  When I am out on. business I never,  for obvious reasons, give my correct  movements. "While ���������������������������-chatting, ,along  these conventional Hues, the husband  arrived. One glance and my heart gave  a leap. There was no mistaking him  from my -description. It .was Mr. Dallas. I was introduced in an informal  manner and we all had tea together.  Almost the first, remark Mr. Dallas  made Avas in reference to his experience  in London. He related it to me with  gusto, and roared with laughter at the  idea of his having been suspected.  "But," he said, with a tinge of seriousness in his voice, "it might have  bene very awkward, very awkward indeed." I. commented upon the proverbial carelessness of shop attendants," aud  added that I knew something about thc  subject as 1 was a.traveller for a Eus-  sian firm of jewellers.   .  Really, that was very interesting. He  had been trying to match some stotfes  i'or his wife's necklace when the unfortunate episode had occurred., Perhaps  some'time I would'give him a "little  practical advice upon the subject. There  was uloro swindling' over' gems than  over anything else. The next thing  was, how to, spend'the evening? What  did I say to the opera? .Excellent!  Then ho would arrange,for seats.  'He didn't Juiow .anything about  music, and he-'was afraid -he did not  come of a .musical stock,'but "still, he  know what he liked.

Mr. Dallas brought the subject of gems  up again and'reminded-'mo of my, promise to advise him-'about .matching  and perhaps .valuing those; which -I did  uot consider sufficiently good-for the  necklace. So", on our return to-the  hotel, 1 accompanied the,couple to their  sitting-room and the - necklace -was  brought out for my .inspection.   --  it, I do remember a lady���������������������������a foal lady,  my dear sir���������������������������who came to see me  about repairing tho guard-chain of a  bracelet. 1 only remember fhe case because she Avaitcd while thc repair Avas  made, and wo chattod about the Coronation. But, really, Mr. Stirling,, I  can't sec thc connection."  "Very good, Mr. Fenton," I replied,  "but don't be so very certain. Now  just do me a favor. Run your forefinger along under tho ledge of the  show-case at Avhich 1 was pointing just  now, and, unless I am very much mistaken, you Avill discover tho means by  Aviiich your diamonds were stolen.'*'  lie did as he Avas directed. A spasm  of amazement crossed his face as he  fumbled for a moment, and then held  up in his finger a pieco of beeswax  about the size of a broad bean.  The mystery Avas solved.  As I explained afterwards to Mr.  Ponton, criminals nearly always give  the game away by unnecessary lies, plus  tho neglect of small precautions, Avhich  means- much. Thus, thc more appearance of thc "niece in Paris" struck me  as odd, aud made mo suspicious. Then,  when I Avas sIioavu the stones���������������������������the proceeds "of the Rome robbery, probably���������������������������  I felt at once that they had a greasy  surface, confirmed whon I dipped my  hands into water.  Putting two and tAvo together, it Avas  really not difficult to arrive at the conclusion -that they had been placed  somewhere, embedded in wax, to be  called for at a - conA-enient moment.  What more natural-place than the ledge  of the counter? ' -  -  ; Messrs. Fenton and Powell never recovered their stolen property, as Mr.  and Mrs. Dallas had left hurriedly for  an unknoAvn desination. But all their  showcases" are hoav flush-faced.  as a poison. According to Cipriani the  common beau is poison, and to do nothing but breathe the' exhalations of  the blossom is to run a risk of contracting a disease knoAvn as fabism.  According to certain medical savants  there are tAvo Varieties of fabism. Respiratory fabism is caused by breathing  the exhalations of thc floAver; digestive  fabism is caused by the ingestion of the  bean itself. But both forms of the  disease are accompanied by tho same, cf  fects and by the same symptoms.

Then a thought  struck mo, and I rolled. tAvo of them  vigorously in the palm of my hand.  _'^What on earth ��������������������������� is Uiat for?_'_"  queried "Mr. "Dallas.

Doctor Ohmko followed the herald  of fabism with the announcement that  buekAvheat produced skin troubles,  eruptions, etc. Subsequently he 'gave  the disease a name: fagopyrism (from  the Latin synonym of "buckwheat,"  fagopyrum). It" is undeniable that  buckwheat has been knoAvn so to-disturb the bloo'd as to cover the faces  of its consumers Avith inflammation and  eruptions.

From hemlock to beans and  cereals as modest and unpretentious as  buckwheat, all vegetables are to be  studied and treated with caution.  Five years ago tho world was startled  by a warning sent to thc French Academy of Sciences against certain exotic  beans. The beans were examined and  found to contain virulent poison; they  were the more dangerous because they  bore close resemblanco to the common  boan without subjecting them to chemical analysis.

In addition to the excellence of the meals, breakfast is served up to 10  o'clock, which is an added attraction for tourists."  (Extract from Lowery's Ledge.)  ���������������������������  On Monday next, July 3rd, the  ratepayers will be called upon to vote  on Money By-laws No. 8 and 9. As  both of these by-laws are to extend  revenue-producing projects it is not  probable that either will be defeated.  By-law No. 8 is to raise $2,000 to extend the present water system. This  we know, is a paying proposition and  it is doubtful if anyone will vote  against it. By-law No. 9 is for the  purpose of raising $3,500 for the purchasing, by the City, " of fifteen  acres of land on the river bank within the city limits, for park and other  purposes. There may be some objection to this By-law in the minds  of some, but only a few, we believe.  It is well known that a portion of  the land to be purchased is to be devoted to the erection of a public in-  cenerator, and the balance to a park  and recreation ground. Both of the  propositions named means revenue to  the city, hence it is only good business to pass both by-laws and enable  the present City Council to carry out  thc schemes they have in hand looking to the progress and benefit of the  City of Enderby.  We have not heard a word uttered  in opposition to the policy of Mayor  Ruttan and his Council, nor does it  seem possible that there can be any  serious objection of the ratepayers to  the By-laws to be voted on Monday.  But, where no real interest has  been created in the proposition, it is  just possible that enough stay-at-  homes will stay- at home to permit  the by-laws to be defeated. It will  therefore be necessary for every ratepayer to be .on hand to cast his or  her ballot lor the by-laws. If there  is too much over-confidence, we may  experience a set-back that would be  costly to the town.  Water works extension is absolutely  necessary. Permanent work which  has been contemplated for two or  three, years, at , the in-take, will be  carried out with part of the money  to1 be raised by by-law No. 8, and  the balance will be spent on extending the system within the city.  Every ratepayer must admit the  wisdom of the City purchasing the  land available for park and other  purposes, and the time to buy is  when it can be had. Next,year, if the  land is available at all, "it wilUcost  at least $100 - an acre more than  the price now asked.  It is only right,that those who follow should assist in paying for these  things, and there ��������������������������� is "no reason why  we. who are" doing the pioneer- work  in the city's-building should not have  some of the good-things as we pass  on." The long-time bonds proposed  give them to us at a very small annual expenditure.   - /'.
