Bert Wilson had a miraculous escape from serious injury while fighting the King Edward fire last Wednesday. He was climbing up the fire  escape assisting in-carrying the,hose  to the third floor, and when just below the second-stroy window the fire  escape parted just, above the feet of  Fred Moore, who was preceeding him.  Mr. Moore clung to the ladder and  was drawn into the seqond-story window, while. Mr. Wilson fell to the  hard rock beneath. He bit the  ground standing up, and fell back upon a pile of empty bottles. His only  injury was a painful ankle for a day  or two.  to assist in the campaign against reciprocity."  Attention is called to an announcement in another column of the 'Fifth  Annual Regatta at Kolowna, to be  held Aug. 9-10.

To see these children���������������������������on or off .the  stage���������������������������and watch them as a study,  fills one with amazement at what-the  average child is capable of doingr  They have, in a large measure, been  compelled to work but their own' salvation in the ' many problems which  line the early pathway of life, and  which are jisutally-settled - by the parent or are side-stepped in the average home. And in the working out  they have been made stronger ,and  clearer headed. And they meet life  with eyes straight ahead and clear-  voiced. They do not have to run  home to find out what they think on  any question effecting them���������������������������in brief  they are child men and women.  We sfiall not attempt to give a detailed account of the performance of  these children on the-stage. We did  not go to hear them expecting the  finished artist; -the trained voice or  stagefied bearing. And we were not  disappointed. We were, on the contrary, very greatly surprised, for we  witnessed in the orphan children an  infinitely Jjetter thing than perfection  in stage training. And- herein lies  the reason for this article���������������������������and its  excuse. We saw in these boys and  girls the acting out in refreshing  childhood abandonment of the child's  untarnished vision of the life they  were "playing."

"Why,  I'vo been peacefuler since you been  here s'u ever [ wna in my life before,  an' it ain't likely I'd let you scoot out  an'  leave me.    I'm goin' along."  Well, what do you think of"that! Me  startin' up to where I wasn't sure of a  welcome, an' takin' such a tow as ol'  Monody along with me. I argued with  him for aa hour, au' the 1 J. got hot  Diamond Dot, the chances were''at I'd  an' told liim that merely savin' my lifo  didn't, give him no mortgage cm me au'  that he couldn't nowise keep up with  tne, an' by the time he reached the  be on my way back to the Lion Head.  Ho didn't waste no time in words, just  sal sour and moody, au' every time f'd  stop he'd gri.w! out, "J don't care  where yo.u go or how fast "you go or  nothin' at all about it. J'in goin'  along, an' I'll catch up with vou sometime."  I sure gave him a* chase; 1 wanted  the blach horse to show up well when  [ landed, but 1 sent him along pretty  steady an' took extra care of him. 01'  Monody had picked out the toughest  pony at the Lion Head, an' he had good  hands, b it ho never sighte I ine till the  night I rcachod the ranch and was busy  wipin' Starlight's logs. "I got some  news for ya," sez ol' Monody, gettin'  down slow from hia leg;weary roaiir-  "I'II tell it to ya while you're eatiu'  supper,"���������������������������an' I was sure glad to seo  him���������������������������an' glad lo eat food again.  an' 1 simply have In see lier on her  next, birthday, even if she don't see  me." At last I couldn't stand it 110  longor, so 1. told the boys 1 had to cut,  an' it fell like a stone on a lamp ch'tm-  <iey; but tho cook, ho took it harder'n  anv oue else. I' liked the boys aa' I  liked Jim an' .1 liked the job; but there  was that tuggin' alius at my heart, an'  in the end I set a day.' .lim, he made  .oie all kinds_ of. offers, 'cause things  were gettin' easy with him; but when  I made it clear to him, hc saw how it  was an' ha sea: "I know 'at you'll  come back to me some day, Happy, an'  if vou '11 settle down, you can be a rich  man. I've kepi, back five hundred  -uoc-uoui ���������������������������), nOAtJi- r V't nn* i0J SJ,Ml������������������l-  ed in your wages, an' you can take  vour pick 0' the colts an' just as soon  as you've had your little flier fwani  vou" back; we all want you back."  JL 's a coml'ortin' feelin' to know 'at  vou're goin' to be missed; but 1 could  Lot savvy that cook, lie bad one big  learin' time of it au' sluiced himself  out with gin an' dug up his old profanity, an' then he simmered down an  iust cooked himself into a new record.  Gee! is was hard lo senaratc from that  mess table; but I had set my day an'  the1 was no goin' back.  Jim hud a black Arabian stallion an  a couple 0' high grade mares an' he  was showin* up something fancy in the  boss line. IK- raised the colts just like  range ponies, an' while they wasn't  quite so lough when it came to livin'  on sage brush an' pleasant, memories,  tiny .-oulil cat up the ground like a  pra"irie fire, an' they was gentle. 1  bought a silver trimmed bridle an  some Mexican didoes, an' then T said  good-bye to all of 'cm except thc cook  ���������������������������he wasn't there. ,'."-,  I hunted for him an hour; but he had  so many peculiar ways 'at T "just let it  go at that an' finally gave him up; so  f left him a ������������������;'ty present an' pulled  out with about a thousand yellow .'ties  in my belt an' the best mount in tho  West. ..  I hadn't gone  more than  two  miles  CHAPTER III.  As soon as I finished takiu' care 0'  Starlight, J give Monody's mount a  look-over. The old bald-face was whipcord an' steel; but he looked purty  near ready to own up.  "Monody, confound you," L sez.  "What thc deuce did you hammer this  old skin over tho road like this fort"  "That's my pony," he growled.  "Since when?'.'.  '���������������������������'Since 1 bought him, that's since  when."'  "Whon did you buy him?"  '���������������������������"It ain't none 0' your business wheu  T bought him. I bought him tho mo'u-  in' you pulled out."  "What did you pay for him?"  "Are you goin' to talk about that  ol' cayus'c all night?" he snorts, gettin'  wrought up. '       ',."'- .  . -  "J'm goin' to talk about him until  J. find out about him,7 sez I, "an' you  might as well come out of it an' toll  what the-' is to tell."  --  "I don't have to tell nothin' about  him. 'lie nevch belonged to you. Jim,  he owed 1110 some money on my wages  so 1 just took the pony for thc money.  An' now [ hope you're through pester-  in' me.""  "How much did ho owe ya?" sez I.  "Now you gone about far enough  wilh this!*" yells Monody. "I don't  know how much ho owed mc, an' I  don 't care. 1 reckon ho owed mo more  than tho pony'a worth, 'n if he didn't  he can just portend ho raised my wages  last month."  "Why didn't you let him raise your  wages a little more, an' bring along a  bunch o' five-year-olds too?" sez I,  grinning. I was mighty glad to see the  old scamp, an' I knew he had drawed  tho worst end 0' the bargain; but 1  wanted him to understand that if'was  embrassin' to go agaiu my wishes with-  ci:t=r.-rv, consent.

"What's your news, Monodyf" I  sez, after I'd satisfied myself that I  couldn't swaller another crumb.  "You're heading for thc Diamond  Dot, ain't ya?" sez he.  "This is a corner 0' the Diamond  Dot range," sez I", lollin' back an'  puffin' slow an' comfortable at my  pipe.    ���������������������������  "Thc pony corral stands at tho  mouth of a little canon, don't it?"  "Yes," sez 1.  "An1 tho cook house is to the right  of it?"  "How old is she?" asked Monody.  "Now you look horo, you old post,"  sez I, "if you 're just tryin' to get oven  with me about the bald-faced roan, why  cut it; but if you've got something to  tell, why tell it, 'cause I'm gettin'  sleepy. She'll bo eight years old tomorrow."  Old Monody shook with silent laughter for a moment. "A. lady!" sez he.  Thon he sobered an' sez, "Is it vour  child!"  I heaved a rock at him which ho  dodgod, an' then 1 sez, "You wicked  ol' beast you, do I look old enough to  have an eight-yoar-old������������������daughter?"  "Sometimes you do an' sometimes  youndon't. You're one 0' these fellers  'at ain't got no age 0' their own, but  just ago up accordin' to what's goin'  on,"���������������������������an' ol' Monody stumbled on a  bit 0' truth when he eaid this, an' it's  still true.  "Well, what aro you gettin' at?"  aez I. ,    o  "The Diamond Dot is goin' to be  raided tonight," sez he.  T jumped to my feet. "Who by?"  I. sez.  "You're fifteen years older right j  now than'you was two minutes ago,"  sez Monody. "I stumbled onto Bill  Brophy's gang last night, Bill has  seven 0' tho lowest grade wolves 'at  ever wore man-hide���������������������������I���������������������������I used to know  Bill down in thc Territory, an' Bill lie  thought I was still on the grab.

Brophy's bad  medicine; -you'd bettor pass up your  eight-year-old lady friend an' come on  back to the Lion ncad with ol' Monody."  I walked up an' down a time or two,  thinkin, it over.

"I got one. friend anyhow," .sez 1,  "but as long as you're insisted on tag-  gin' along after mo, you'll see tho  place an' you'll seo my friend; though  I somehow doubt if you'll be invited  in for a meal,"  "Is your friend a lady?" soz Monody.  "Oh no," sez 1, sarcastic, "she's  a two-year-old heifer, I wouldn't think  0' goin' this distance'just to call on a  lady." * .     ..;..,,  "It's a good  average four hours' ride.. Now I can  do it in three on Starlight; the old bald-  face couldu't do it at all tonight���������������������������'.'  * "Look at him now," sez Monody.  There he was eatin' grass as lively as  a cricket. ."Well, you- follow "as .you  can, ouly you'd hotter lay low unless  [ whistle the Lion Head signal.

Big ' an '- heavy as ol'  Monody was,, he was .1 light rider, an'  the bald-face hung at my cinch for thc  best part, "of an hour an' then wc slowly  oozed away from him." The stars were  all full, power thai, night, an' a feller  could see most as.plain as"if'the"'d beon  a moon'.'  . ,lt smelt good1 to be back at. the old  place again; an' iny blood was vacin'  through my veins till [ fair tingled.  Finally I reached the cauon an' began  to ride careful. Tt was only about  eleven; but J" didn't want any o! Bro-.  phy's gang to take u pot shot at me.  All of a sudden something moved on a  little grassy shelf on tho. side of thc  cliff. Starlight shied off to tho left an'  iny gun tiew up over my head, ready  to drop on whatever it happened to be.  My eyes were dnlliu' into the gloom  whon a mite of a creature with hor  hands clasped rose up an' said, "Oh,  Happy, Happy! is it really youf an'  rid in' on tlio black boss with the silver  trimmed leather!''

Old Cast S'toel was stnndin' in the dining room iu his stockiu'-foot with a gun  iu each hand an' a quostiou in his eyos.  "Get ready for a raid, Jabez/' sez !.  "Who from?" soz he.  "Prom thc Brophy gang," sez 1.  " liow do you know?" soz ho.  "They are duo to arrive hore at midnight, Jabcz," soz I.

"Bill an' seven others. I found out  through the meanest lookin' mortal you  ever set eyes on. He's a giant; nearly  black, an' the ugliest crittor you ever  set eyes on; but ho's white inside. He'll  bo along as soon as he can get here���������������������������  don't shoot him."  "I ain't apt to shoot any help this  night," grins Jabez. "If it wasn't for  the littlo girl, Happy, I'd be right satisfied to have it out with Bill; but I hate  to think of what may happen to hor.  How'11 we fix for 'cm?"  "Get in the dug-out collar," soz I,  for I'd been plannin' it all along.  "I reckon they'll burn the houso  down," sez Jabez; "but I'd rather they  destroyed tho whole blame outfit than  to havo anything happen to thc little  lass,"  "Where's MelisseT" sez I. "She  left," sez Jabez; an' I hadn't time to  learn particulars.  By this time wc had everything barricaded, an' gettin' Barbie we made a  run for the dug-out. It was only two  hundred yards; but we hadn't left the  shadow of the houso before a rifle sings  out followed "by two revolver shots.  The' was a big pile* 0' winter wood in  the L of the ranch house, an' without  sayin' a word I swung Jabez with little  Barbie in his arms back of the wood  pile.  'We didn't shoot much", although the  gang kept pepporin' at" the wood pile  purty;frequent'from behind the,cook  houso.' ".They'll fire the house purty  soon," mutters Jabe?, after we'd boat-  'om off'on their second rush. "We'll  havo to tr'y for the dug-out sooner or  later.'" .     '  Just at this'minute the six notes o;  the - Lion Head signal floated in.  "There's ol' Monody," sez I. "I wish  Barbie was safe an' we'd show 'em a  morry time of'it." 1 answered the call  an' the' was silence for a long time.  Presently wc heard a rattlih.' volley,  an' the cook rolled around the corner  0' the house an' joined us.  "The next time they rush," .sez  Jabez, "we'll charge out after 'em an'  try for the dug-out. They won't monkey much longer."    -  They didn.'t monkey at" all. Two of  'em had broke into the house from in  front," an' the next we.knew a.winodw  had beon bung open at our back an' we  would a-got it right then, but Monody  heard 'em, an' as soou as tho window  shutter flew back he emptied .his gun  inside. At.the same time the remain-  in -' six charged in a body, an-' for the  next few miiuitos we was .some" busy.  But wo boat"-'em off, an' as they scurried for shelter to lcad,,we made for the  dug-out; me in front, ol' tSabez, in the  centre, an' Monody closin' up thc rear.  ���������������������������Just before we reached it,"a revolver  cracked in the doorway 0' the.dug-out,  I felt a sting in thc left shoulder,-spun  around and felly but'-jumped up" just "as  Jabez changed ^directions for'the-cook  shack.. It. was.,only a step from the  dug-out an'-'wc rushed in, slammed-the  door, dropped in'the bar, au' turned to  face a man with two giuis on us. Mono-,  dy dropped on ���������������������������him,''an'-I was, about  to shoot from the hip when ol' Jabez  sez, "By George, Jim, I'd, forgot all  about you���������������������������wc can sure fix 'em _ now.  Those "is friends, Jim." -Jim 'was a  savage  lookin'  brute  an'  I  eyed  him.  Wo didn't reply to it, which was most  uncommon lucky for us; 'cause the first  thing we knew, they came rompin'-  around each corner an' poured in on top  of us, They was used to fightin' against  odds, an' it irritated 'em coneid'able to  take so long at a job with the' odds in  their favor. Outside, the starlight give  us a purty fair aim, while they couldn't  do more than guess at us���������������������������so we beat  'cm off once more.  "The's only three shots in this gun,"  sez Monody, cheerfully, as he handed  mv iron back to me.  "What's that?" sez Jabez.  "We're about out of fuel, Jabez,"  sez 1.  I heard him grit his teoth in tho darkness.    "Where is she, Happy?" sez ho.  "Sho's still in her corner back of tho  stove with the shack door in frout of  her. They won't hurt hor, Jabez���������������������������no  matter what liappons, an' the' *s a good  fight in us yot. 01' Monody here don't  begin to fight till the ammunition has  givo out; so keep your mind easy for tho  next rush," sez I.  Next moment they surged down upon  us, shootin' as fast as they could fan.  ���������������������������We didn't oxplodo a cartridge until  thoy was bunched in thc door ah' thon  we emptied out. Thoy cussed an'  groaned consid'able; but they surged  on into the cabin, just the.samo. The  smoke was like a cloud inside, an' a  newcomer couldn't see1-an inchj^so I  backed into my corner with-my left arm ���������������������������  danglin' at my side an' holdin' my gun  by tho barrel.  ���������������������������--  (To be continued), .   -  'Airs!

The cook shack was built out &' pine  logs at the bottom, an' fixed so thc-upper sides 'd swing out like awnings in  hot. w-eather. Wc felt purty comfort:  able. The' was a square window at each  end an' one "on _the side facin'-the  house; the 6tove waH on the other side.  Wc made little Barbie sit in the corner  behind the stove. Jabez took th������������������ window facin' tho house, me the<one facin*'  thc dug-out, an*' the sub-cook facin' the  corral. T could shoot cleaner'n Monody, so he stood by to do my loadin', an'  wc proceeded to waste iimunition. Jt!s  enough to make the oldest man the'  is_.reckless,,_whe.11   you   think   of   the  "I know why," sez hc. , "One of  'em stole ono o1 my ponies an.' started  to run off a bunch o' my own cows with  it.

After a bit things grew quiet, an'  then we saw 'a small freight-wagon  backin' down to the door with a lot 0'  wood across thc back of it. -Jnbez' came  ovor to my window an' wo shot into  an' under the wagon; but it still backed  up. The' was a little grade down to  tho cook shao.k, an' after thoy got it  started the' wasn't much to do but  guide. _Tuey_had .fixed n_stiek n_'. wood  pointin' straight back r'rom the rear  axle., an' when it.hit the door the bar  broke ������������������u; the door flew off its hinges  an' cloar acroa-- the room.  But gettin' the wagon away for thoir  rush was a different matter, an' we all  shot at one unother purty regardless.  Once, I reached hack iny band for a  fresh L'un an' failed to get any. I  turned around, mi' there was Monody  holdin ' the sub-cook's right writt with  his left hand an' grippin' nt his throat  with hip right. The' was a horrid look  on the sub-cook's faeo, an' just as 1  tuvnod to 'interfore, Monody gave a  wrrtiich which tore out tho cook's windpipe, gave him a sling which landed him  under iho table, au' handod me ������������������ fresh  gun. E was some bothored about this;  but that wa'n't no time to hold an investigation, Ho I begun shoot in' at  (lashe." iipr'iin.  "How's your cartridges holdin' out?''  soz Jnhcz.  "Ain't many loft.*' soz Monody.  "Fin about cleaned out myself," sez  Jabez.    "Where's Jim?"  "I think he's about onco through,"  sez I, an' we proceeded to shoot more  economical.  Purty soon they quit firin' again an'  thon the freight-wagon started up the  hill. Thoy had put their ropes on the  tongue ��������������������������� an ' were draggin' it out with  ponies. Wo know what that meant an'  took a brace.  Thc lull what followed waa the hardest part 0' the whole business.

These are a never failing resource in tnies of  dearth in the way of topics of conversation. A bit of spicy  scandal may crop up hoav and again as a sort of condiment  to the staple diet, but as a good old reliable, tales of sickness  can always be depended upon to offer entertainment, if not  to the listeners, then assuredly to tho narrator.  Por a master of tho art of relating detailed, harrowing  stories of sickness and funerals, commend me to the professional charitable visitor, one who out of kindness makes a  point of visiting, not only all her own sick friends, but also  sick friends of her friends. To cheer these lonely invalids  she collects and stores in her mind, all thc sad tales she can  get, to bo retailed on her visitor. The more gruesome these  tales arc the better they are liked as they can be depended  on to cause thrills of the thrilliest ,sort in the hearer.  This visitor 'is���������������������������usually kind hearted, and her intentions  are of the best, but her judgment is poor," or she would know  * that what a sick person needs is something cheerful and  ' fresh from the outside" world.   Even a bit of scandal, if nothing better offers," is. preferable to these depressing taleB.  . ., The greatest sinners in this matter are women, for men  as a rule are so busy and have too great a "dislike for invalids to be bothered' making such visits, for which every  invalid should be devoutly thankful,   This sort of a visitor  is a pest and should be shut out, or else put in quarantine'  the, same as any other dangerous ,form of disease.

Tf the much be-praised rose were as common as tho  dandelion it would soon cease to be qucon of the garden, but  tbat would not make thc rose any less beautiful in itself.  Ti the law of tho'survival of thc fittest'counts for anything, then the dandelion deserves respect as the very fittest  of all, and when the emblem makers were hunting for a suitable iower to symbolize Canada ami things Canadian, it is  a -pity they overlooked  the  cheerful, optimistic  dandelion.  -Everybody grumbles at it, but the same oyerybodies are  always pleased to sec its clean, bnght little face each spring,  and if some year it forgot to come out, wc would realize what  _a beauty spot the dandelion  really is in a, Canadian laud-  escape.  -Even thc daisy and the cowslip are considered nuisances ii their native lands, and yet no Englishman would  like to ������������������ee England rid of thorn; and thc daisy and the cowslip we no lovelier, as flowers, than the dandelion.  It is a true child of the fresh air and sunshine and resolutely refuses to. smile and look pleasant when plucked and  used as indoor decoration.  To the practical mind this plant lias a more prosaic rc-  cormeBlation   than   that   of   beauty;   wheu   cultivated   it  timkei Me of the most delicious and wholesome of salads.   ,  Lo*������������������ live the dandelion and may it never fail to brighten  Canadian roadsides and meadows with, its golden face!  ���������������������������    *    -i '  Thaak goodness, we live far from the smiles and frowns  of royalty. It is really getting dangerous to be safe now  that the queen has "flickered her eyelids" at poor Mrs.  Antt-r for wearing a tight, well-fitting gown, cut low in the  neck, and a large black hat.  'lie qaeon herself is said to favor the good old English  st/la of gown of some past generation. It is to be hoped  that her ,������������������ajesty will not put too g*reat a strain upon the  ldjralkr of her Canadian subjects in the matter of those early  VieUmi fashious,   The elastic limit would be padly stretch  ed in that case, and there' might be danger of a petticoat  rebellion.  Aunt Mary has not beon able to gather yet from the dispatches just which old style it is that her majesty prefers.  There was the early Victorian, with its modest pantelettes,  white stockings and slippers; it was a "well-clothed" style  as to the nether portions, but the arniB and shoulders were  even more lacking than in the case of Miefl^Astor's smart  modern gown.  Then, nearer, in point of time, to out present day fashions, were those in vogue in her majesty's youth, the voluminous monstrosities known as the mid-Victorian. Yes, it  niust-.be that period which has found royal favor. The  clothing of that day was bo eminently proper, there was  virtue and respectability in every line; and the only fault  it had was that its very hideousness was indecent.  Perhaps, though, her majesty intends to settle on. a still  older style, one whose pecularities 'have the sanction of ages  and to whose frank indecencies we have-become accustomed  in the'-pictures of the beauties and belles of the Georges'  day, when the ordinary street costume of the women was..a  short skirt, a large hat and a bodice cut so low in the'front  as to leave the bosom exposed to the public gaze.J ' "y  The study of history tends to broaden the views', and  reformers would do well to post'themselves on past events  before setting out on their reformations. If Queen Mary  seriously intends to reform, worn en 'fsJ dress, Aunt Mary respectfully suggests that her majesty should consult with the  legislators of Kansas. They also have views on what is what  for women "to wear. But,' ofrj we humbly beseech ,your  majesty, not the Victorian���������������������������"early" or "-mid."

CANADA'S ASBESTOS INDUSTRY  Canada produces 82 per cent, of the  world'8 supply of asbestos. The companies operating asbestos quarries and  factories in the Dominion are capitalized at $24,290,000. In 3880 only 380  tons of asbestos were produced, valued  at $24,700; whereas in 1909, the production amountod to 63,300 tons, valued at $2,300,000. In 1909, 3,000 men  were employed in tbe asbestos industry, and received wages amounting to  $1,350,000. These facts and much valuable technical information of practical value to tho geueral public are  contained in a finely printed and well  illustrated vohun.e of 316 pages, just  issued by tho Mines Branch of-the Department of Mines, Ottawa. This valuable addition to the seiios of monographs being issued under the direction  of Dr. Haanel, was written by Fritz  Cirkel, M.E., and treats thc subject of  asbestos from every viewpoint: history,  geology, peculiarities of Canadian occurrences, quarrying and milling, together with statistics, cost of extraction, its occurrence in foreign countries,  and its practical .application in tlie arts  and manufactures. To give an idea of  the enoimous reserves in some of the  asbestos * deposits,- Mr. Cirkel ;mcntions  the case vof one,/the'Blake Lake Quar-  ries'/.Quebec, where there are some 45,-  000,000 tons of'asbestos rock in sight.  The author, goes fully into'the. discussion -of foreign' asbestos occurrences,  and considers Russia the "only real rival  as regards extent of asbestos resources."

Hero hc remained for six monthB, giving such satisfaction that his salary  was nearly doubled. One day .ho resigned, giving as his reason for leaving  his work that hc intended goiug to the  Colonies.  Some months after he had left a  rival firm placed some goods 011 the  market which were .cheaper and quite  as good as those turned out by thc firm  with the secret. Inquiries were made,  and it was discovered that the lattcr's  secret had undoubtedly been stolen and  sold to the rival firm, but not sufficient  evidence was forthcoming to bring the  crime home to the old employe.  Some years ago a French silk manufacturer conceived a new way of''"finishing" certain kinds" of silks, which  much improved their appearance and  value. Fearing that the secret would  leak out if he" employed strangers to do  the "finishing" process, he" did it himself, with thc assistance of his son.  This young man got badly into debt,  and in order to obtain money sold his  father's secret to a big firm of silk  manufacturers in Amorica for several  thousand dollars.

And the step  j should not be long delayed. Under  present conditions, it becomes impossible for the Oity to observe any  regulations which would ensure the  uniform building up of the present  business streets. Within the fire limit, it is not so difficult to- compel  the. observance of a reasonable  amount of consideration for. the jsafe-  ty-of adjoining property in the erection of new buildings or the reconstruction  of  old  buildings.  But just across the street from the  sharply restricted section, we see the  erection of what must certainly prove  a ni'ost\ dangerous fire trap in.case of  fire, -and something that is a menace  to the" surrounding properties. At  the time the permit was asked for  for the erection of this building, it  was stipulated that it .was to be used  as a furniture store, and further, that  before the winter set in, it would be  covered -with iron sheeting. ��������������������������� On- the  strength of this promise, the permit  was granted. Before the completion  of��������������������������� the.building, the'owner Mr. Holt-  .by1, sold -out to Mr. Poison, and the-  building was never completed. It  was never iron sheeted,, and every  partition which has been put up in  the building has made " it more a  menace to the adjoining'property and  the safety of. the district within the  fire limit.   .  ~ _ -  '   - i  ��������������������������� Under the present bylaw there'does  not'seem to be"any way provided for  dealing with,this case, or any similar  case7 , Whereas, if the;fife limits are  extended- so as to cover all ot Cliff  street, and with reasonable provision  made to - govern the construction of  buildings- which, would-be a menace  to the buildings.within the fir* limit,  the law would then act equitably. It  now places a burden upon the.businessman who honestly wishes, to' improve the town, and- yet gives him  no protection from the shack man,  whose object ...generally is to get in  tlie way of the advancing movement  in such a way as to- reap a harvest  as a result of the enterprise and energy of others not of the speculative  type.  --        .    . ��������������������������� y'   t .  when the country is as prosperous as  Canada has been in recent years, it  would be the height of folly to change  completely our fiscal policy. It were  infinitely. better business to force the  American manufacturer to bring his  money and men into Canada and  manufacture his finished product out  of the raw rnaterial so abundant here  than to send our raw material into  the United States duty free to be  manufactured into the finished product and sent back here free of duty.  This, we believe, is the feeling of  a vast majority of Canadians. We  shall know on and after September  21st. It will be a sad awakening for  Sir Wilfrid.  we guess we will have ' to stay at  home and watch the wheels 'go round  on Tom Robinson's monoplane.  ENGLAND'S   "CRISIS"  .The Parliamentary crisis in England seems to' -be at an end. The  little band of insurgent Lords, under  the leadership of. the Earl .of Hals:  bury, is now trying by propaganda  to excite an apathetic country to. a  proper sense of what they term "the  enormity" of the -offence Lord Lansdowne and Mr. Balfour are committing in aiding, the government in  carrying the - hated veto bill. As  Lord Lansdowne has the support of  some 350 ��������������������������� members of ,the House of  Lords he is not likely- to be greatly  exercised by .'the 'Earl of Halsbury  and .his little band. Most of the  party leaders are spending the' weekend in the country, apparently1 waiting for the hot-headed Lordst, to cool  off and return to normal.'

Sir Wilfrid Laurier has shown  good sense and dignity in asking for  the dissolution of parliament, which  came last Friday, and in going to the  country on th^I^iprocity'issuer^lt"  was the only thing left for him to do  and hold the respect of his followers.  September 21st is the date set for  the general election. Already thc  leaders have issued addresses to the  electors.  The figh't will be made squarely <  the question of reciprocity. Sir Wilfrid -is convinced -that-the country .is  ripe for reciprocity while Mr. Borden,  leader of the Opposition believes it  is not.        -    -       ,  While we never have been able to  work ourselves up into anything like  a decent scare on the matter' of reciprocity, and do not yet see in it  the direful results pictured by some,  still we have an idea that Canada is  just now in a position to be mistress  of her own house without the aid of  her amiable Uncle Samuel. And we  have an idea, too, that after all these  years of high protection, and the  snubbing of Canada by our genial  Uncle Samuel, he -would not now be  on his knees before Miss Canada if it  did not mean something to the advantage of the aforesaid genial Uncle  Samuel., And we believe, too, that  it would be exceedingly unsafe for  Miss Canada to play at Uncle Sam's  game until she is better acquainted  with his intentions,  Wc believe Sir Wilfrid has misinterpreted the feeling of Canada in the  matter   of   reciprocity.

For the purpose  , of doing this work conscientiously Dr. Creighton, who had for  years beieved in and practised  vaccination, went into an exhaustive study of the subject, and it  waa not long before the conviction forced itself upon him that  vaccination was a useless and  dangerous practice. He so informed the compilers of the Britannica  but they expressed a desire for  - the unbiassed results of his examinations��������������������������� and the result was  fifteen columns against vaccina-,  tion in the published edition.  The facts stated in this section,  says Dr. Creighton at the beginning of his article, will come before most readers with the aspect  of novelty; but the views here  expressed are. the outcome of independent and laborious research.  -' 'The article in the Britannica so  disturbed the advocates of vaccination that an effort was made  . to secure the reply of an equally  'eminent medical authority.  It so  happened that about, the same  ' time.the'celebrated biologist, Dr.  'Edward    M.    Crookshank,    of  King's College, London, was devoting himself to pathological re-  .  searches in connection,, with the  communicable - diseases; of. man  ancLthe, lower animals, and the  ' /question naturally arose whether  his observations supported orre-  .. futed.the conclusions arrived at  . by Dr. Creighton^as the result of  [   his  historical   researches.    Dr.  Crookshank likewise went  into  an exhaustive "examination of the  ...subject, and the result' was two  ': volumes against .vaccination.  v y Of course'the' "statement of ah  Ottawa doctor:that the advocates  7 of ariti-vaccination haven!t.a leg  ,-.;,to .stand on and that it..'is*- all a  '^niatliefaf/'i^orahce, withytKem  _.; must Vbe. ^placed    inVevidence  - >agaihstrthe,.

Germany ;��������������������������� Ricord,   of  : France; and- such   thinkers as  jj Herbert'Spencer, -Alfred. Russel  : Wallace,.. Professor   Ruata,   of  Italy; -Vogt, of Switzerland; Tebb  '' and numerous others have'ranged  themselves in opposition to vac-  , cination. The collective ignorance  . of this;group alone must be something appalling, to say nothing  of the decidedly.atheistic  complexion'which v their attitude on  this question would, according to  . another local physician, make in-  __evitably characteristic.   A Chess-board of Wheat.  The story about the man, the  grain of wheat, and the squares  on a chess-board is not knew, but  the wonderful result of arithmet-  ' ical progression which it proves  still amazes people all over the  -world. -The man for some service  done to the King asked for as  much grain as would enable him  to cover the squares of a chessboard, placing one grain on the  first square, two on the second,  four on the third, and so on  doubling every time. The result  is really  marvellous, and some  , idea of its immensity may be  gathered from the fact that in  order to cover the sixty-four  squares in this way it would take  the entire world something like  10,000 years to grow all the grain  required. It has been estimated  - that there are 550,000 grains to  the bushel, and that one year's  worfd harvest runs into three  and a half billions of bushels. If  this little deal was ever brought  off it would be a  talking about!  In the development of Okanagan valley and its varied resources considerable prominence  must inevitably be accorded to  Enderby and its surrounding  district, says the New Empire for  July. Rich in agricultural wealth  Enderby's environment is a most  pleasing one and it requires but  the handiwork of man to convert  natural wealth into useful' collateral. The centre of a growing  lumbering industry, Enderby  will always reap a payroll from  the operation and employment of  the district's timber resources,  Dairying and live stock breeding-  are peculiarly adapted and these'  combined with profitable agriculture form a perpetual revenue  to the town and its commercial  interests.  / Enderby is growing fast and  when the story of the Okanagan  is written several years hence,  replete as it will be with the recital of wonderful triumphs, .one  of the brightest pages will, be  dedicated to the progressive town  in the northerly part of the'valley.  . The produce from Trinity valley, Mable Lake valley, and Deep  Creek valley is all shipped via  Enderby. This splendid district  comprises an area of over 50  square miles, and in every instance the roads'leading to town  are slightly down grade, enabling  ranchers to draw good loads. -  The roads compare favorably  with those in older districts, the  government spending large sums  annually in "maintaining' present  system and opening.new roads  wherever. it is >shown there. is  traffic to warrant, employing  large crews of men at good wages  for severalrmonthseach year.",  , All products .from' farm and  dairy find a ready and ever increasing- market. :Persons selecting .wooded glands' often get "in  return f toms woodyand timber  cut more. than\������������������he cost of clearing../y- /.

It is with a feeling of relief  that he looks out upon the .more  home-like scenes of the northern  Okanagan. The cultivated fields;  the cosy farm homes, surrounded  by orchards; the fat cattle, knee  deep in rich meadows, come as a  balm to eyes dazzled by the sublimity of all that has passed before them. "Here," he whispers  to himself, "reign peace and  plenty, created by the hand of  man; an essential to national  prosperity lacking in the mountains."  Deer Park Fruit Land  Very sincere sympathy is expressed by the' many friends of  Mr. and Mrs.  G.  Alers-Hankey  over the sad affliction which they  have met in the death of their  little daughter "Mardie" which  occurred or Tuesday night.   The  child, who was about four years  of age,  was   operated  on   for  ���������������������������appendicitis  on Friday,  and it  was then seen that the case was  a very, serious one.  She lingered  on for several days, however, and  though little hope was held for  her. recovery,  the-news'of her  death came   as a great shock.  She was the only girl child in the  family, and was a particularly  bright and winsome  little miss,  who. won her way into the affections of all who knew her.  The  grief-stricken parents and relatives have many hearty sympathizers in their hour of sore trial.  ���������������������������Vernon News.  ..

Refusing to he tempted by the most  flatterig offers from Lhe ^Republican, government, he prefers- to live an exile in  Spain, working for thc* restoration of  bis young king. To the imagination  of the Portuguese royalists ho is thc  por&oniu'cation of trust, tradition, and  temerity, and the correspondent of the  London" Outlook , dwelling up'iu the  wave of enthusiasm, that Couceiro 's  most roccnt manifesto has aroused,  thinks that their imagination may not  be so far astray. ITc recollects, also,  how on that disastrous day of October  5th, J9I0, whon the storm of rebellion  broke loose, he was one of the few  royalist soldiers who did his duty, and  did it well.  lie was ou  foot, fighting throughout  all those thirty-si*: hours, thus behaving  in   a   very   different   manner   from   so  many   others   on   whom   the   monarchy  had bestowed high office, bnt who, when  the  moment  of  trial  came, manifested  the   most   extreme   cowardice.       Those  who still rernaiued faithful to the cause  which   represented   eight   centuries    of  glorious    traditions    concentrated    all  their hopes iu that heroic figure. When  defeat came,   I'aivo   Couceiro  accepted  it with the pride and dignity of a  Mo-  man, and went into retirement.   He at  once sent in his resignation as an officer of thc army, but the new government refused to accept it.   He persisted, however, iu his determination to resign,  despite  all  the   blanishmeuts  of  the now regime, which was exceedingly  anxious to have the support of his prestige, and showed that he could  not be  bribed, even by bribes which few ambitious soldiers could resist, into embracing a cause which  he detested.-     For  ��������������������������� months the strongest possible pressure  was brought to bear on him.    He is too  proud to tell how great are tbo prizes  .   which were offered him, and tbe public  knows   nothing  of   the  temptations  to  which he was exposed. -   He only saw  the   new   regime   inarching   toward   inevitable civil war, and trampling down,  on   the   way,   the   rights   of  tho   great  majority of the nation.  Ln America this attitude is a hard 'one  to   understand,   but   the   mind   of _the  loyal Portuguese grasps  it readily.    It  was  the   only   possible   point   of   view  .,   which Captain Couceiro could entertain.  Ho frankly declared to the provision-"  ��������������������������� - al-government that he was dissatisfied  with the situation and that be. desired  -'   to be freed from" Iiis duty, as a soldier,  to "obey the constituted authorities. He  declared   bis   conviction,   founded    on  ,,11-any facts, that the Republic not only  'meant immediate danger for.the independence of the nation, bnt did nor. correspond to tbe .wishes of the majority.  ,-Ile asked that "for the actual government there should be substituted au-  other, an impartial government, which  should take a referendum of thc people  as   to   the   form   of  the   regime   which  "���������������������������they preferred.    Whatever the result of  ��������������������������� that plebiscite might prove io be, he  undertook to regard it as the supreme  expression of the national will, ft is  unnecessary to say that this proposal,  a proposal worthy of the noble spirit  with which it originated, fouud no support from thc president, who knows  better than any man in  Portugal-what  ,, would be the result of such a plebiscite.  On learning of the rejection of his proposal, Paivo Couceiro declared that he  would stay ia Lisbon foi twenty-four  hours, and would then, if not arrested,  take whatever steps seemed jiood to  him. The twenty-four hours " having  ' passed without the government, deciding   fc������������������t-.:inriri'.hp.nd_hiin Guuccko left _f or  ment. This beiug the case, the provisional government-decided to take steps  to safeguard itself, so far as lay in its  power, against a royalist insurrection  in the north or an armed incursion of  Paivo Coucoiro from across the frontier. With that object iu view, it dispatched fo Oporto a war-vessel manned  entirely by the ofHcurs and sailors who  proved their disloyalty on Octobor 5th.  Lt has also reinforced its garrisons in  the north with southern troops, whom  it regards as trustworthy. We may  soon seo if its reliance ou them is justified.  to be appointed for the same work in  Dusseldorf. Even a littlo girl of thirteen acted as detectivo tho other day,  and succeeded in following and bringing about the arrest of a man concerned  in tho robbery of a gas-motor. The  story was told at the London Sessions,  on April 25. ".The .Antis .will., have to  hunt about for new bogeys."  This, indeed, is an unexpected dovol  opuient. In the same-paper there still  appear remarks about the press boy  cott. Doubtless a certain class of paper  does abstain fiom giving publicity to  tho woman's cause. But the bost jour  mils suroly have done nothing so undignified.  aes55=9gf  )  THE TALLEST TOMB IN ENGLAND  Near   the    woll    known    seaport    or.  .Southampton,   Kngland.   there   is   a   ro-  lor Lloyd George is alwayB an optimist  and a believer in his lucky star.

AN  ESCAPE  FROM  SHARKS  Ever since Aristotle's time, whon two  water" m a  a dangerous  men descended into "deep  "kottle," diving has been  affair. The divers' dangers are three  fold: hc is iu danger descending, for  then he may be literally "swallowed"  by the pressure of the internal air; and  he is in danger ascending, for then he  is subject to the "bends," which, if the  exact opposite, is exactly as bad; and,  if neither "swallowed" nor "bent"  by the atmospheric pressure, he is frequently iu danger -of both from some  passing whale or man-eating shark. The  modern diver is rigged up with a telephonic apparatus, which serves him in  good stead, but up to a few years ago  thc diver had been forcod to depend  upon Lugs at the life line to communicate with those above. This was true  in the case of George Means, whose  story is told in the Scientific American.  He  recounts:  Tt was in the Gulf of Mexico, and I  had to go down to look up tho condition  of *the Bella Marta, sunk two years before, and supposed to contain a good  deal of coin. The water was only nine  fathoms, and T did not expect much  trouble, but 1 got it. I had a good man  on the line -and thought my pump-was  all right, yet from the first T experienced difficulty iu gettig air. Tt was found  out afterward that there was a leaky  valve. I pulled for more, and for a  while it came better; then I got to work  in earnest. The water was as clear as  a bell, and t didn't have any difficulty  at all in finding the hull, although she  was "half covered with sand." But T had  all thoughts of her scared out of me  in short order, i had crawled through  some of her rigging and wreckage to go  down iu tho hold���������������������������dangerous thing to  do, but T couldn't help it. I was getting along-.nicely, and had the hatch  almost .broken through, when J saw a  shadow about fifteen feet -loug above  me. P-knew it was "ti-shark, and_T was  a badly scared man. Of course, I commenced working my way back as soon  as possible, but T wasn't quick enough.  The brute saw me and came at me slow-.  I.V, jaw? open vvidu-and wicked eyes  gleaming liko'sin. And I couldn't get-  out, because the way J had come was  the way to his. jaws���������������������������he was on thc  wrong sido for me. 1" was in mortal  terror lust he go at my tube, but he had  eyos for bigger game. There was but  one thing to do, so T drew my knife���������������������������  ���������������������������luckilv if. was .a good ten-inch blade  It  markable  edifice   known   a.s   Petersen's  Tower,    The  eroction   is  all   the   more  singular becauso it marks f.ho burying-  placo   of   a   curtain   .John   Petersen,   a  wealthy tea planter.    The man appears  to   have   been   rather   an   eccentric  individual, and  in order  to provo to the  world his belief in concrete as a building material, set about the construction  of this great tower.    The building took  many years to complete, but it is entirely   of   concrete,   and   by   thc   time   the  final layers had beon placed had reach od  an altitude of more than three hundrod  feet.    IL is about forty years since the  tower was erected, and its present condition is certainly a justification of the  faith of the builder.    As has' been indicated,  Peterson left instructions that  his remains should be placed under the  tower,   and   this   was   accordingly   carried out.   Another desire that the chamber   at   the  summit   should   contain   a  light  was  defeated  by the  firm  stand  which   Trinity   House,   tho   light-house  authority, took ou the matter.   Such an  illumination   would   have   been   visible  i'or  miles out at boa and would  naturally   have   proved   very   misleading   to  sailors.  SUGAR-COATED  ETIQUETTE  The Justification of Hiram  Hid behind the copious folds of bis  morning paper, Hiram Wiigglesworth  sat at tho breakfast, table. Hc had  slept tho sleep of the just man, and  seemed at peace with all thc world. A  steaming platter of corned-beef hash  studded with lustrous poached eggs lay  ���������������������������before him, and life seemed fair, and  then, suddenly, without warning, thc  rustle of silk-greeted his'ear. Lowering  his paper he cast a surprised glance in  the direction', of ;'the doorway, and there,  standing between the half-opened portieres, hor face white and wan, stood  his daughter. She seemed faint and  ill at ease, but none the loss there was  a look of strong determination upon  countenance.

He emphasized tho advisability of sparing the  country the horrors of a civil wa'r, by  takint/n poll of the people on the question of the regime which the country  preferred. He npprovod of I lie provisional government's social legislation,  but disapproved of all its other dictatorial proceedings. He gave instances  to prove that the republican regime was  enly increasing the lack of discipline  ���������������������������md the spirit of anarchy which i.s one  of the Portuguese people's greatest de-  fads. He expressed his conviction that  'he only *Jorl of government which could  solve iii a few months all the difficulties  of the situation was a resolute military  government of an impartial character.  This manifesto was at. once seized by  order of the government, which at the  same time intimated to the few newspapers still left in tbo country that  they were not to make tho faintest ro  ference to it. Despite this prohibition,  thc document in question enjoys a large  circulation, us did the Bishops' Pastoral and thc Jesuit manifesto, both of  which Ihe provisional government had  likewise placed upon their index.

Scientific Baseball Has Changed
the Old Game
Scieutilic baseball of today���������"inside
ball," they call it���������consists in making
the opposing team think you aro going
to make a play one way, thou shift
suddenly and do it another.
The    modern   game   has   developed
tjuick thinkers and  resourceful players
such as tho pioneers of the game never
1^ dreamed   of.   Thero  aro  few  of  what
ri were known as "good all-round" play
ers nowadays. Tho inside game has
developed teams made up of baseball
specialities, They excel in oue position, are trained with that object in
view, and me never colled on to play
iu any other position.
Tho offensive part of thc game has
not  beon  devolopod   as   the  defensive
has.   Nearly every means of attack in
tbe game today- was used by ball players years ago, but players of the present   day   have   plotted   and   schemed
until    they   have   devised   plays   and
tricks for mooting almost every play. .
A defence has been evolved by pennant .winners   that  baffles  every  tangible  move   of   attack,-      The  squeeze
play, the  hit-and-run" play,  the. delay-
steal,   tho   pitch    out," all.��������� these . are
made useless when  thc .opposing'^"toam
is"" shrewd enough to anticipate what is
going  to"  happen   and   is ' waiting   for
rv-them.    Guessing,��������� indeed  plays an jm-
'portant'part.-     ��������� . /"-
, If a team detects that its signal has
been solved, by its opponents, it must
shift the-play quickly.   Then there  is
"where the craftiness of tho  enemy  is
"seen,  i'or  sometimes   this~'second  shift
���������i9 detected, and the tactics- of the. defence are all changed in an instant to
' meet'the new situation. ���������

Tho pitcher who throws .the ball with,
terrific speed, a straight fast ball, is
scarce. The leader today in fust ball
pitching is Walter Johnson, of thc
Washington Club. His speed is terrific, and few catchers can receive this
service, fie has marvellous control of
this straight ball, which takes a
straight and slightly downward course,
.md the batsman is invariably lato in
swinging at it.
It is thrown by grasping tho ball
with the thumb undernoath and two
lingers on top. It is thrown overhand
with the full force of the body behind
A straight, fast ball is rarely put
ovor the centre of the plate. When it
does happen to get into tho "groove"
and tho batter connects, it goes far. .
/The drop ball iu the present day
"game has almost reached perfection.
iCathewson's famous fadeaway is the
highest development of this delivery.
Tt is a slow ball, although it takes "as
much force to throw it as a fast ball."
Just as itns released, two-fingers
clinging to tho sphere' are"-jerked,.backward -,This makes the ball revolve
with great rapidity; and slow up its
course. The -.pressure, of "the two fingers and the backward jerk*- causes, it
to, go almost to thc-plate, where" it
loses "its rcvolving3tendency," slows up,
and drops. The-"1 best batsmen have
been fooled' time and again by this ball
of Mathewson's."-The false impression
that the ball is comiug with great
speed and its sudden loss of speed and
"fade"'mystifies the batter.
��������� Another development of .ator-day
pitching is tbe moist ball. This curve
has the sharpest "break" of any ball
that is "pitched. Russell Ford of- the
New York .Americans-and Ed. Walsh
of the Chicago Whito Sox have brought
it-to its highest scientific Btage." Dick
Rudolph of, the Toroutos is .one of the
best spitters-'of the ,Eastern-League. "
.- A-small" spot betwoen" the." seams of
the' ball is'-" covered .with saliva. The"
pressure on one side of the ball is in
ner falls into-the trap without a struggle. Thon again he may get to first.
The Infield tight-ens, and it moves into position to balk the probable play.
Coolness, speed and concentrated
action are called for. Perhaps the
pitcher can foolthe batsman-into striking at a ball' which is suro to be
scooped by one of the crouching fielders. The infield is on thc "jump in an
instant. Every rnan is in tho play,
and the situation is exactly-as plunned
by tho defence. All advanco is cut off
in un "instant. Pitcher, third baseman,
or shortstop may get the ball, whip it
to second, then to first, and it i.s a
double play.
Jn tho present-day game a double
play is tho oxpectcd thing, with a good
pitcher iu the box and a man on first.
Thoy come so frequently,.thnt the baseball fan has become blase, and no matter how intricate or how perfect the
mechanical working of tho play is, ho
refuses to  be surprised any  moro.
Inside \ scientific ball is so common
now among the best ball teams that
if thero is a slip-up in the execution of
a play or a blunder of intellect in the
proceeding, a cry of "bouehead" rises
biint," and sometimes a semi-wind-up
and throw to third will kill the play before it is really started. Tbo squeeze
play is not a new invention in baseball.
'-' Tt was used many times by the old-
timers of' the late '80's and early
'90/s. A' few years ago it got con-
Mdornble prominence, and, for a time,
wiiii qu������to populir with many teams.
Tbt- hitand-ru't p!ay, with a man on
���������-BrBt~a ml -loiio _out,_is .often 1 worked ion
thc cleverest ball -teams. Thero is a
sharp lookout for this play nowadays,
and it. takes tho craftiest sort of planning to work it.
The base runner starts with tho
pitcher's wind-up, and the batsman
hits at the ball no matter where it goes.
Tho runner lias such a good start that
ho usually makes second, although the
fielder often makes the play at second,
instead of first, believing he can cut
the runnor down.
A skilled pitcher often baffles a play,
uf this sort by shifting thc signals at
second base, or by holding tho runner
- too closely to first base.' Uc may
throw a ball-which will Have to be hit
toward right field. Iu that case the
secoud baseman moves toward, "first
when the ball is hit, aud the shortstop
covers second, or the opposite, as tho
case may be.

of scientific development than any

There is a vast amount of ground for

put Scotland aright.    A stait may safely be made with thc land, for two reasons:., first,   it is  the  greater  source  of
trouble at the moment, and, second, it
is the line of the least'resistance, for
however parties may haggle His to what
will  put a  town  and  its industries to
rights, be it Scottish or English, there
is no dispute about the case of Scottish
land.     Radical   and   Tory   alike   agree
that the Scottish land system is wrong.
Its  sins,  too,  are   for   tho   most   part
ugreed upon, tho chief among them being that it results in land being insufii-
ccntly accessible.    The Liberals would
increase  the   facilities  for  small   holdings; the Unionists would ine reuse the
facilities   for   small   ownerships.     ..Mr.
Balfour put it very clearly in a speech
in .Edinburgh   Inst   autumn;   when   ho
said,  "What   I   believe  iu  is  thc  multiplication   of   small   owners   who   are
occupiers���������owners,   it   may   bo,   of   a

with advantage be dealt with by inton-"
sive   cultivation   or  thc   handiwork 'of
a man and his family.    But you never,-'
in my judgment, will get small owners"
and small cultivators really to"succeed

How Can .It-be stopped ���������   --
(From the London Daily Mail)
Twenty-one thousand Scots, young,
vigorous, ond brimful of hope und enterprise, have left Scotland for other
lands since the year began. Moro are
to follow. Towns aie gradually emptying. Villages nre dying or dead. The
rate at which Scotland is wasting
needs no further proof.    It' is realized
tli_iit th_������L_l"Mi<*o_i������ fatal.   The thing now
is how to stop this "win������tiug",~an"d_to"find
the answer to that the fnvt atop is to
got ut the cansoH of it.
The first question as to Scotland's
allliction���������whatever its ciiuho���������is' that
of ostout. How far has it gone? Is
the national phthisis in ono lung only
or in-both? On this point I think there
has boon f-ome hesitation to disclose the
whole truth. It is very serious. Tor
rural Scotland has been held u������ as thc
only lung���������may one say?���������that is
"touched," wlteieas the disease is really present in both, in Scotland rural
and urbane. It begun with the rural
places, it is true, but it is no longer
confined to this limit. The towns have
begun to follow. The emigration party
lists alone will convince anyone of this
fact, for the frequency with which the
words "fitter,"' "joiner." "painter,"
"tumor," "smith," "domestic servant." and so ou figure in tlio column
bended "occupation" speaks as eloquently for the town us the words
"farm baud" do for the country. The
disease is common to both if in slightly
varying dogrees, and tho fact should
not be ignored. The souse in which tho
onus of being the first seat of-trouble
may be said to be upon the country
districts is in the fact that this town
population that is emigrating was originally of tho land.. Neglect of the agriculturist and the cxpausion of town industries years ago combined to bring
the agriculturist from tho country to
tho town. Modern conditions in both
town and country in Scotland now tend
to drive him from both.

are special factors to take into account '

Thc witnesses  called ��������������������������� were: Mrs. Jane Blackburn,  Constable Bailey, Alderman Teece,  and Provincial Constable Price. Thc  evidence went to show that the blood  vats and yard were in a condition  most dangerous to public health and  contrary to thc local by-law, and  that the stench arising therefrom was  foul, and made life most unpleasant  for residents in the vicinity.  Mr. Sharpe testified that hc had  not been at home when the place was  in the condition complained of.  In view of the frequent complaints  arising, out of the unhealthy condition of the slaughter-house yard and  receptacles, tbe Court ordered the immediate abatement of the nuisance,  giving defendant 30 days in which to  cease killing" in the present slaughter  house. This is the penalty laid down  in the by-law under which the case  was called.  Mr. Sharpe gave notice that he  would take an appeal.
