H.    M.  W   A  I-   K   K   R  ONE   MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  Last Friday evening thc Conservatives-of -Vernon- felt-like-uncorking  their pent up enthusiasm of fifteen  years standing. A wire was sons to  Mayor Ruttan requesting him xo  bring down some Enderby friends to  help in the uncorking. Mayor Ruttan drove his auto, loaded with as  many friends as could be accommodated. The auto load consiswd of  the Maybr, and the old war hur.-er*,  F. H. Barnes and F. Hassard, A.  Fulton, .and the Editor of Knderby s  family journal. Not an enthusjaatlc  bunch, to, be sure���������������������������except. Weil, **.'e  got there. We got there in a hurry.  We went there fast and sober. We  came home faster and soberer. Next  day there was a frost. The thermometer dropped 10 degrees 1-elow  freezing. We felt (quite uncorked by  this time. To have one's enthusKsm  uncorked so suddenly after hftnen  years of pent-upness makes one feel  like���������������������������what does it make one feel liivP?  But it was a great uncorking !  Vernon is rapidly getting the ro*m-  tation of doing things right when  she goes at it, and on this occasion  she "sure 'did herself proud."  At 8 o'clock   the streets were gaily  directions, flags and bunting were pome satisfied-satisfied with the re-  blowing in the soft evening breeze, | suit-satisfied with themselves in the  autos gaily decorated were flying ' measure that each contributed to the  about, ancl there was a genuine feel- result-and   satisfied   that   they had  uncorked.  ooo  The   citizens    of _ Mara are_ j_o_.be  congratulated on the opening of the  public hall recently built and under  the management of the Mara Musical  and     Athletic      Association.       Thc  in the fall   and   spring at the point lighted,    there   were big bon-fires on  of the Recreation   Ground.     The re- the Mils surrounding the town in all  ing( of enthusiasm loosened up:  Then   came   the Vernon band, and  the -torch-bearers. Fully -500 -of- the  latter were in line, four abreast.  They marched through thc streets,  led hy a long string of autos and thc  band, and the line of march was a  line of gaiety and good-hearted  jollying, with thundering bombs and  fire-crackers thrown in. The procession marched to the grand stand  on the baseball park, and there the  enthusiasm was uncorked. Nothing  else was. Speeches which were  cheered to the echo were ma'de by  the Hon. Price Ellison, Mr. Mackelvie  as president of the Vernon Conservative Association, Mayor Husband,  Mayor Daykin and Mayor Ruttan.  All eulogized the great undaunted  spirit of the Canadian peo'pl'e, ancl  praised the splendid work of Leader  Borden. At the same time, there  was nothing said with a shadow of a  sting in it reflecting upon the greatness of the   defeated prime minister.  When the speaking was over the  greait crowd reassembled at the Conservative committee rooms to take a  last, long, loving lo,ok at the returns placarded upon the walls as  they were received, and after reassuring themselves that it was all really  true and was no dream, they left for.  nouncement Regarding   the . Sunday,  services will be made later. -       ���������������������������    .

It  was much against   our wish to have  J*  to miss this event. When social occasions at Mara and publication  eve fall upon one and the same night  we know how to sympathize with  that parabolic individual of old who  had married a wife. We shall know  more about Mara's new hall, and  when we do wc will tell about it.  ooo  Willie Hearst, the Yellow Kid, the  original without blemish, is spending  his time now in England telling an  intelligent public -what he thinks of  Canada and Canadians because they  would not take the reciprocity pill.

T was a little soft at  first, but it didn't take mo long to get  ins* hand in, an' I roped my half o'  the winter calves. It had. been a mild  winter an' the' was a big- run of 'cm.  an' Jabez was in a good humor moat  o'  tbe time. . . c.  The men mostly liked Jabcz; but.  they used to talk a lot about him, as-  lie was some different from the usual  run. He had first come into that locality when Barbie was two years old.  buyin* tbe big Sombrick ranch an'  stockin' it up to ���������������������������tlio limit. He never  said a word about his wife, nor his  ���������������������������past: an' Jabez wasn't just the sort  of a character a man fel,t liko'-pryin'-  privato  history   out, of.     .-"'���������������������������'.    '  The men laughed a good bit .about-'  the time Jabe'/, had had with the Spike  Crick school. Ho had a fool notion  that money was entitled to do all the  talkin', an' that's a hard position to  make good in a now country. After  his money had built the schoolhou.se.  they refused to elect him ono o' lhe  truslees; said it might lead to one-  man control. Still, Jabez wasn't no-  blind worshipper of the law, an' when  lie found that they'd put n rope, on  hini, he just sidles in an' asserts himself. It was easy enough to convince  a teacher that the trustees was boss:  but when Jabez began to get Iitv-  paticnt, the school-teacher jrcnorallv  emigrated a little. Then they put a  cinch on liim for true. Thoy hired &  woman teacher. When it came lo  bluffin' a woman teacher. Jabez got-  longue-handlod so bad that onco dirt-  him for all time lo come.  ���������������������������'But the' wasn't any difference of  opinion when it came to Barbie. Tho'  wasn't a man on tbe place who wasn't,  willin' lo stretch a neck for hor. She.  knew 'cm all by name an' used to  tease 'em an' contrairy 'em; but she  nevor hid ���������������������������behind ���������������������������being the "boss's  daughter. Any time they scored, she  paid, and that was the tiling that  made 'did worship hor. She had  changed a lot in the five years I'd  been away;; not only in size, in fact,  that was the least noticed in her; but'  she  had  more thinkin'  spells.  It used lo be that she made up to  every one right from the start; but.  now she was a little shy at first, especially with TCaslerncrs. Rasterners  generally are about as tanlalizin' as  it's possible for a human to got. bu*-  she had neve:* minded 'em much until  this summer. Now she'd answer tho  ���������������������������first twenty-five or thirty fool citics-  tions polite enoiigh, but after that she'  got purty frosty an' would ask 'em  some questions herself that would  straighten 'em up right short in their,  tracks. About every time an Easterner  would pull out I noticed that she'd put  a little wider hem on tbe bottom of  her skirt. ,  But she was pretty much the same  with mc, an' after the spring roundup she used to keep me ridin' with her  most o' the time when the' wasn't  anything actually domandin' my attention, dt was just about this time Ihat  .Taboz hired a now man by tbe namo  of Bill Andrews. Tie was about as  near speak-less as a man ever gets,  an" be. wasn't much liked by. tho rost-  of us; but ho was a bard worker an'  a good, all-around hand, so he got-  along all- right.  When the fall round-up came, Bar- ,  bio surprised every one by sayin' sho  wasn't going to do any-of the ridin'  but-would wait until after weM got all -'-  the sorlin' out an' brandin' done an'  would thon come out an' sec the whole  herd in a bunch. Tbe' wasn't a thing  tho matter with hor'health an* we all  wondcr<?d what- was her reason; but  T had my own private opinion���������������������������she-  was beginning to find out sho .was a  girl, an' she wasn't quite used to it.  We finally rounded up in the bip  bend of Spike Crick, an' tbe stuff was  in tbe suet, every one of 'em. Omaha  was supposed to be straw boss: Imt  be was too easy-goin' an' generally  let the men do about as they pleased-"  Tiill Andrews, the new man, had ���������������������������**-"  sneer on his face about half the time,  an' one mornin' when I came in. from  night ridin', lie sez to a bunch o' the  boys: "I didn't suppose the parlpr-  boardor over risked any night dampness."  They all grinned, 'cause Iho' wasn't  any jokes barred with us; but T didn't  grin. I walked over to tbe group an'  I soz: "Ts the' anybody else in this  outfit that has *any o' that brand o'  supposin'  about  'im?"  "Aw sit down. Happy," they sez:  an' "What's the matter.

INSECT COMEDIANS  fc'onie of thc most ephemeral of insects show a genius for taking advantage of their coloring. One of the most,  beautiful of the butterflies of India  when pursued furls his wings and clings  to tho stem of a lon J' so as to appear  pari of the bush or tree. On the upper  side of his wings are very briliantly  colored and beautifully marked. The  lower side of his wings is the color of  the bark of a'*tree. He knows that he  is in danger from both birds aud naturalists". When in danger he seeks refuge  in a bush or tree, clinging to the stem  of a leaf so'narrowed, so elongated, and  so still that the sharpest eye fails to  recognize him as a living'creature. ' In  that position hc, hangs for hours. Not  a tremor of antennae, thorax, or abdomen betrays hini.

Jle is  rarely caught, because his strategy  makes it impossible^ to distinguish him  from the dead leaves...  In Brazil thero is a butterfly which  escapes capture by assuming the appearance of tbe head of an owl. His enemies,  tlie night birds and .the serpents, fear  the owl above all creatures. If by  chance they catch a glimpse of the  butterfly in'time to chase hini, thoy arc  suddenly stopped at the place of his  disappearance by thc ferocious head of  the creature they 'fear most.- Tn time  of peril this butterfly insinuates himself  into'a-mass of leafage, where he accomplish os his transformation immediately  and peers out upon his enemy with  wings so folded as to present every appearance of the head of an owl. Con-  -fronted by tho brown head, the pursuers turn' and fly with all haste, glad  io escape from their worst foe.  " The butterfly waits. .

We ought to foci quite heartened up to Jsaru  that one of our very own sons should be so intelligent. Ifc  should really be very careful, though, of. an intellect like  that and see a doctor about it; for a wise poet has said:  "Great wit to madness, sure is near allied," and all his million of mothers would feel real bad if anything should happen  to his budding mind. '  Dear mc! I feel strangely moved to poetry and must  quote again. "Nature and .Nature's laws lay hid in night.  God said, 'let Newton be,' and' all was light."

Vou must coine into physical-contact with its leaves  to be affected. Stories ahout its poisoning at ten,'twenty,  or thirty fcej-, like the famous .'forty-rod' whisky of Indiana,  are now regarded as pure fairy tales. \ '   "  " fts victims may be'perfectly certain that they have n'o  lccollection  of haying touched a "leaf or spray of the ivy.  ^Butf-no^ojie^hHS-^lic^sliglitcs^  touched when walking in the woods, until he begins to pick  the burrs, pollen, leaves, thorns, and gum from his clothing,  or studies the scratches and eruptions on his hands or face.  ^Moreover, aud conclusively, the researches ,of Pfaff have  proved that the poisonous principle is non-volatile���������������������������that is,  it is incapable of being turned into a vapor-and carried by  air-currents. ���������������������������   ���������������������������  "The second consolation is that, being a definite physical  irritant, it can be removed by physical means. Tho poison  is a neutral body dissolved in an oily substance, somewhat  resembling the -famous i-rot on oil,_or-__the '*ul_nf lujstard,  There" is "no known"~:iTi"t'"dotc_for" it" but," as it" is slow in penetrating thc skin, if ran usually bo removed before it lias  done serious damage, by the simple and readily available  remedy of scrubbing with soap, hot water, and a nail-brush;*  "flic sooner this can be done after exposure, of course,  thc better. Out usually, if promptly and vigorously resorted  ro as soon as the first signs of irritation or eruption show  themselves, the irrilant can bo removed before it has seriously  injured the skin.  "Tho so_riibbiuig must be done thoroughly, as if you were  trying fo take paint or u fruit-stain out of a garment���������������������������  stopping .short, of course, of actually scratching or denuding  the skin. Tf alcohol bo available, thorough scrubbing with  this may be substituted; or. better' still, it may be added  a.s a finishing touch to the scrubbing with soap and water.  "Those who know themselves to be peculiarly susceptible  to the. poison will find it a useful routine measure either to  wear gloves or to stop aud scrub thoir hands at the first  stream they come to, after leaving the woods. The mud of  the streamis a fair substitute for "soap and a brush. If this  bo supplemented with a thorough scrubbing with soap, hot  water, aud nail-brush as soon as they return home, an attack  will be presented nine time out of lon.  "Ninety-nine times out_of'a hundrod, the poison is first  touched with the hands and carried by them to other parts  of the body, like thc face. So that if the hands are scrubbed  soon enough, and those who know themselves to be susceptible scrupulously avoid touching the hands to ihe face while  in the woods, most of the poisonings will bo prevented.  "The curious old 'hair of the dog that bit you' legend  so widely prevalent���������������������������that one can become immune against  poison ivy by eating or chewing the leaf and flowers���������������������������appears to have no foundation in fact. Tho only results recorded have been tho prompt development, of severe irritation  and inflaniafion of thc lips, tongue and mouth.  "Nor is there much better basis for the stories that thoso  who have once been badly poisoned are liable to have a  second outbreak of irritation af the same time the next year,  without further exposure.

I  am   particularly    delighted  with the  outcome of this campaign because'it  was not based  upon the question of  partisanship,    but   uplon the issue of  empire    and    country,   and I believe  that I am    correct   in this analysis  because many Liberals must have cast  their votes with the Conservatives to  accomplish this glorious result.     All  Europe  is interested  in the  outcome  of this    election   because it solidifies  the British Empire, and I believe that  Canada with its enormous resources,  its energetic    and   virile population,  will .some   day   be the centre of the  British Empire.     I regard to-day as  Canada's  -birthday   as a nation  because by the election it has resolved  upon its future course,  and with the  marked ability that it has shown in  finance, industry and agriculture it is  well able to take care of itself, thereby benefitting   the . empires    of    the  world.     Had Canada accepted a reciprocity pact with the United States  its   affairs   must   have   been   "drawn  sooner   or    later     into    a   political  arena,   and   what   that   would have  meant ultimatelyurnay be best understood by ."the fact that for every dollar Canada puts' 'down America-can  put clown a thousand, and for every  man, America puts -down a hundred.  People-and nations generally think of  their .own personal and selfish interest, and if I had    been an American  citizen I should have worked.with all  my might for   reciprocity, because I  would have been certain to benefit by  it.     I have the greatest admiration  for  Americans    and    their  wonderful  achievements, and I don't blame them  in the least for having tried to gain  a most important foothold for- their  energy and ingenuity^    I believe that  if   reciprocity    had   'been    carried it  would have been thc beginning of the  end of the British Empire as a Avhole.  All   thinking   people    with large imperial and    national   ideas in Great  Britain- were   viewing "this   election  with keenest interest, and the results  will be   regarded   as    of    an all-im-  portant-cliaract-ernnHhe'-Olcl^eDuntrr  Secretary Robinson,    of the Board  of    Trade,    has been    busy some  days getting together tho samples of  fruit, vegetables,  etc.,  to be  exhibited at New Westminster in Enderby's  district exhibit     there.     I-Ie reports  having   received    very liberal assistance from growers,    and  believes he  will have a very creditable' exhibit at  the big fair.       This   Annual Provincial   exhibition   is    to -be held, from  October 3 to 7.'    All products for the  district exhibit will have to be sent  from  Enderby  on   Saturday.'     There  will be room for .other exhibits sent  from Enderby even, as late as the 4th  but these will be only to refresh the  exhibit already judged. .There will be.  six    large   district   exhibits    in   the  competition   for    the Dewar Trophy  emblematic  of supremacy in  agricultural  products in   British Columbia.  The   districts   already    entered-    are  Mission,  Langley,   Salmon  Arm,   Co-  quitlam,    Enderby,    Comox   and the  Arrow Lakes districts, and if Enderby  does not succeed in winning, she will  at least have   shown that her intentions    were   good.   In     the   district  fruit displays open to the world the  areas to    be   represented' are Pentic-  ton,    Kelowna,    Armstrong,   Salmon  Arm,  Lillooet," Summerland, Vernon,  Nelson, and Windermere.     The total  cash   prizes    to   be   ' Competed     for  amount   to    nearly    $3500,   with  the  handsome     Dewar     trophy. This  amounts   to   the   largest   prize ever  offered in   Western   Canada for  cultural exhibits.  For that  Cold  LyaVs Pinol  Expectorant  Will give instant relief and  the cold soon is gone. It  takes so little time to do  the job and the comfort of  being well again is worth  so much, it is unwise to be  without as bottle in the  house, don't you think so?  A.

ROGERS LUMBER CO., Enderby  Mr. Hamar Greenwood, senior  Liberal member of Parliament for  York since 1906, a Canadian prominent in political' life of England, said  in an interview in the Province: ",[  would like to associate myself with  Premier McDride'in his_g'cnerdus_.i6pc  that Sir Wilfrid Laurier will continue to lead the Liberal party in the  new House of Commons. No one  would appreciate more his presence  there than Mr. Borden, and every  Canadian, independent of party, must  feci that thc withdrawal of the late  prime minister from public life would  mean the disappearance of a great  figure from Canadian and Imperial  history. Whatever one may think  of his political views, I who saw him  shoulder to shoulder with monarchs  and ministers of Europe, can vouch  for it that he always rose to the occasion and environment, and well and  worthily represented Canada."

The  lumber companies have found, just  as the mining companies in the Koot-  enays some* years * ago discovered,  that they lost' money, in feeding, the  men, at 75 cents a day.

"Bury beets, turnips, carrots, salsify and parsnips in a similar pit  and' be sure to sift the soil between  them. Parsnips and oyster plant  (salsify) will improve in flavor if  you leave them where they grew until  hit by the. frost.  "In the small garden, cover the  celery rows * with inverted V-shaped  troughs, and then in turn with leaves  and litter to keep out the frost. The  early crop may be left uncovered during the days if protected with straw  at night. , *\  "Young corn -is almost sure to  ripen if the entire stocks are cut and  stacked.

But, conscientiously,_ l  must warn the millienr's apprentice  who reads this, expecting a lieginald  Montressor in straits, to peruse no further.' The' young man was no otliei  than   Thomas   McQuade,   ex-coachman,  -'discharged for 'drunkenness oue month  before, and now reduced to the grimy  ranks of the one-night bed seekers.  If you live in smaller !New lork. you  must'know the Van Smuthye: family  carriage, drawn by the two 1,������������������00_ pound,  100 to 1-shot bays. The carriage is  shaped like a bathtub.

A  inouth ago 1' was pushing the lines over  bar!-.- of the finest team ot Per-  (I'nIocs that ever made their  'it'th Avenue in '-'.So.    And  wa s  age,  right  own  rei.t, so smoothly running, so craftily  demolishing the speed regulations that  it drow the attention even of the listless Bed Liners. Suspended and pinion-  ��������������������������� ed on it.? left side was an extra tire.  When opposite the unfortunate company the fastenings of this tire became  loosed. J't fell to thc asphalt, bounded  and rullud rapidly in the wake of the  dying car.  Thomas .McQuade, scenting an opportunity, darted from his place among  the Prca'cher's goats. In thirty seconds  he had caught the rolling tire, swung  it over his shoulder, and was trotting  Miiartly after the car. On both sides  of the avenue people were shouting,  whistling,, and waving canes at the red  car, pointing to the enterprising Thomas coining up with the lost tire.  One dollar, Thomas had estimated,  was the smallest guerdon that so grand  au automobilist could offer for the service hc had rendered, and save his  pride.  Two blocks away tbe car had stop-  ed. There was a little, brown, muffled  chauffeur driving, and an imposing gentleman wearing a magnificent sealskin  coat and a silk hat on a rear seat.  Thomas proffered the captured tire  with his best ex-coachman manner and  a look in thc brighter of his reddened  oyea that was meant to be suggestive  to the extent of a silver coin or two  and receptive up to higher denominations.  But the look was not so construed.  Thc seal-skinned gentleman received  the tire, placed it inside the car, gazed  intently at the ex-coachman, aud muttered  to himsolf inscrutable words.  "Strange���������������������������strange!'- said he. "Once  or twice even L, myself, havo fancied  that the Chaldean Chiroscopo has availed.    Could il be possible?"  Thon he addressed less mysterious  words to tbe waiting and hopeful  Thomas.      ��������������������������� ' ���������������������������  ���������������������������''Sir, I thank you for your kind rescue of my tire. And E would ask you,  if I may, a question. Do you know  the family of Van* Smuytb.es living in  Washington Square North*?"  "Oughtn't I to?" replied Thomas.  "T lived there.   Wish I did yet."  The seal-skinned man opend a door  of the car.  "Step in, please/' he said. "Vou  have been expected."  Thomas McQuade obeyed with surprise but without hesitation. A seat  in a motor car seemed better than  standing room in thc Bed Line. But  after the lap-robe had beeu tucked  about him and the auto had sped on  its course, the peculiarity of the irivi-  tation.-lingered in his mind." -  ������������������������������������������������������'Maybe ,--tbe guy hasn't got- any  -change.--', was his diagnosis. "Lots of  these swell rounder's don't lug'about  any ready money. Guess he'll dump  me out when he gets to some poiDt  where   he   can   get   cash   on   his   mug.  T.'s to-be mindful of his P.'a and Q.'s.  When  be  viewed  this silken, polished,  and     somewhat     terrifying     host     he  thought'vaguely of dentists.  "Say,   doc,"    said   he    resentfully,  "that's  a  hot  bird you  keep  on  tap.  I hope I didn't break anything. But  I've  nearly  got  the  willliwalloos,  and  when   he   throw   them   32-eaudlepower  lamps of his on me, I took a snapshot  at hiin with that little brass Platirou  Girl thai stood ou the sideboard."

Submerged in his greatcoat, the mysterious automobilist seemed, himself,  to marvel at, the surprises of life.  "Wonderful! amazing! strange!" he  repeated to himself constantly.  When the ear had well entered tbe  crosstown Seventies it swung eastward  a half block and stopped before a row  of higb-stooped, brownstone front  hou^e-..  "Be kind enough to enter my house  with me." said the soal-skinnod gentleman when they had alighted. "He's  going to dig up, sure," reflected Thomas, following hini inside.  There was a" dim light in the hall.  His bo.->t conducted him through a door  to the left. Suddenly a luminous globe,  strangely decorated, shone faintly in  thc centre of an immense room that  aceined to Thomas more .'splendidly  TfppafiftW^th'aTS^^  on the stage or read of in fairy stones.  The walls were hidden by gorgeous  rod hangings embroidered with fantastic gold figures. At the rear end of the  room were draped portieres of dull gold  spangled with silver crescents and stars.  The furniture was of the costliest and  rarest styles. The ex-coachman's feet  .sink into rugs as fleecy and deep lis  snowdrifts. There were three or four  oddly shaped stands_or tables covered  witl) black velvet drapery.  Thomas McQuade took in the splendors of this palatini apartment with  fine eye. With the other he looked for  his imposing conductor���������������������������to find that he  tin il  disappeared.  "P'goe!" muttered Thomas, "this  listens like n spook shop. Shouldn't  wonder if it ain't one of these Moravian .Nights' adventures that you read  about. Wonder what became of the  furry guy!"  Suddenly a stuffed owl thai stood  un an ubony perch near thc illuminated  globe, slowly raised his wings and  emitted from his eyes a brilliant electric glow.  With a fright-born imprecation,  Thomas seized a bronze statuette of  Hebe from n cabinet near by and hurled with all his might at the terrifying  and impossible fowl. The owl and  his perch went over with a crash, With  the sound there was a click, and the  room was Hooded with light from a  dozen frosted globes along the walls  and ceiling. The gold portieres parted  and closed, and the mysterious autobo-  bilist entered the room. He was tall,  and wore evening dress of perfect cut  ami accurate taste. A Vandyke beard  of glossy, golden brown, rather long  and wavy hair, smoothly parted, aud  large, magnetic, orientally occult eyes  gave hini a ihost impressive and striking appearance. If you can conceive  a Russian Grand Duke in a Rajah's  throne room, advancing to greet a visiting emperor, you will gather something  of the majesty of his manner. But  Thomas McQuade was too near his D.  course  ladie������������������' sunshades disappeared?  know   'oui.    And then whal?"  The  Grand    Duke   rubed  his  hands together softly.  "Wonderful!'" he murmured. "Wonderful! Shall 1 come to bclievo in the  Chaldean Chiroscopo myself? Let me  assure you," he continued, "that there  is nothing for you to fear. Instead, I  think 1 can promise y'ou that vory good  fortune awaits you.    We wilPsoe."  "Do thoy want me back?" askod  Thomas, with something of his old professional pride in his voice. "I'll promise to cut out the booze aud do thc  right thing if they'll try me again. But  how did you get wise, doc? B'gee, it's  tbe sweliest employment agency I was  ever in, with its flashlight owls and so  forth."  With an indulgent smile the gracious  host begged to be excused for two min  iito?. Jle wont out to the sidewalk and  gave an order to thc chauffeur, who still  waited with tho ear. Returning to the  mysterious apartment, he sat by his  guest and began to entertain him so  well by his genial and witty converse  that the poor Bed Liner almost forgot  the cold streets from which he had been  so recently and so siugularly rescued.  A. servant brought some tender cold  fowl and tea biscuits and a glass of  miraculous wine; and Thomas felt the  glamour of Arabia envelop him. Thus  half an hour sped quickly; and then the  honk of the returned motor'car at the  door suddenly drew the Grand Duke to  his feet, with another.soft petition for  a brief absence.  Two women, well muffled against tbe  cold, were admitted at tho front door  and sauvely conducted by the master of  -a first/class coachman like myself; but  : 1,11 take the job 'back, sure, doc. They  are good people to be with."  And now, a change came o'er the  sauve countenance of the Caliph of  Bagdad. He looked keenly and suspiciously at the ex-coachman.  "May I ask what your name is?"  lie said shortly.  _"You've been 'looking.'for me/- said  1 nomas, "and don't know my name*  Vou re a. funny kind of sleuth.

On a gold-inlaid rosewood fable were  scattered sheets of white paper- and a  queer, triangular instrument or toy, apparently of gold, standing on little  wheels.

"'I beg you will excuse mc for a very  few minutes," said Professor Ghcru-  I'usco, "and I think I can demonstrate  to you the efficacy of the true Art."  Thomas was contentedly munching  the last crumbs of (he bread and fowl  whon thc enchanter appeared suddenly  at his side.  "Are you willing to return to your  old home if you are assured of a welcome and a restoration to favor?" he  asked, with his courteous, royal smile.  "Do 1 look bughouse?"- answered  Thomas. " Enough'of the footback life  for me. Put will they have mc again?  The old lady is as fixed in her ways as  a nut on a new axle."

" Motors" driven'  by   chemicals,   wherein   the   power   is*  geueratcd- by  the  expansion   of. gases  arising from chemical action,-have appeared from.'time to-time,', but the'jdea.-  has" never "been advanced "to  a-"practical stage'.    -.���������������������������_.'":":..    .           ���������������������������TiVGermany,"however, it has  received   greater   attention-of   late, ' and1 a.-  marine-motor   has 'been ���������������������������.designed ��������������������������� ��������������������������� in  which-the  fuel  is  nitrogen  in  a-compressed  form.

The nitrogen will start up"the motor  irrespective of the position of tbe piston immediately thc gas is admitted,into the expansion-chamber, while the '  crank runs in an oil-bath. Moreover,  a_charge of oil will last, for several  hundred working hours���������������������������in short, un-  tii its lubricating functions are absolutely expended, as it undergoes no additional destructive action such as prevails  in   the  ordinary  explosion-motor.  Other advantages are the safety of  the system, the dispensing with igni-  _tioii_aiid_cooling_.facilitiesf^and_the-abr_  soncc of odour. Nitrogen, being an  inert gas, is safe from combustion and  consequently explosion, with the result  that it is an ideal'fuel to handle and  to operate. The great difficulty hitherto in this direction baa been the devising of a vessel capable of containing the compressed nitrogen in large  quantities, and o'f sufficient strength t.o  withstand handling and  transportation.

BERLIN'S  NEW OPERA HOUSE  It has been decided that the new  Koyal Opera House in Berlin shall bo  built, upon thc site now occupied by  Kroll's Theatre. The old opera house  is to be preserved as a memorial of the.  reign of Frederick thc Great, under  whom it was built, and as the first,  great pillar in the musical edifice which  has since been developed in Berlin. The  location for the new building, which  will not be completed for several years,  is not easily accessible, so it. is plan-  nod to have the underground railway,  yvhich is to be constructed from Aol-  lendorf-Plat/, to Weisscnsce, pass under  the Seigesallee. with a station 'quite  near the opera house. This yvill mako  it very accessible to the inbabitaiits of  all West Berlin, which furnishes the  greater part of thc-opera-going public.  1M3 tp  Thursday, September 28, 1911  THE ENDERBYPRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Sir Wilfrid's Waterloo and How It  Was Received in Canada and Abroad  LATEST RETURNS  Quebec���������������������������34 Libs., 28 Cons.

Conservative majority, 50'.  The result of    the    Dominion elections ���������������������������was a great surprise, not only  in this country, but also in the Uni-  - ted States and the Motherland.     In  point  of majorities,  there 'never has  been such a complete victory in thc  histor/of Canada.     A turnover from  43 in the majority one way to 48 or  50 in    the   majority   the other way  means   something    in  the history of  Canada.     It   is    an.epoch which no  doubt marks thc birth of the Canadian nation.     It -means that Canada  will have none0 of the entangling intrigues between   the    Government of  Canada     and    that   of   the   United  States- which would have a tendency  to  draw    the   Dominion  away  from  . what is considered to be to thc 'best  interests of   thc   Empire of Britain.  Right or wrong,  Canadians gathered  this    impression'   of    tho reciprocity  pact, and the    great majority voted  j" accordance with their honest convictions regardless of party following.  This is one of the best of the traits  of all Canadian   born citizens.     The  thinking    element   in    both     parties  got together on the issue of the campaign and threw their weight in the  interest of Canadian independence so  far as our fiscal policy is 'concerned.  , Thc following extracts from London  papers will give an idea of the {.enteral-character of the British thought  on the ��������������������������� reciprocity issue:    -       '     - ���������������������������  -The Evening Standard says:   "The  overwhelming"  character   of the peo-  ��������������������������� pic's decision  on reciprocity is more  --^tlian.-was   expected    here.   For   once  "   we have not. overestimated, but-underestimated Canadian loyalty, to the  Empire,    .which    has .turned its -back  - oil an alien commercial theory."  .   The Globe' "says: '.'In- thc'death -of  the reciprocity treaty the Canadians, j  have withstood nobly the temptation'  for closer trade relations with the!  thc United States and have resisted ;  the silver hair and the silver voice, j  They have kept one fact before them '  ���������������������������the idea of the Empire���������������������������and have'  placed it before party calls, which I  shows that they are-still imbued with:  the spirit of their ancestors."     ' j  i  Thc Westminster Gazette says: "All \  may join in salute to the fallen ,  leader. , His reputation is secure and  he needs no pity. The question upon i  which he went to the people was, an I  especially straight issue and hc lost." j  The comment of the American press j  is of a different , strain. They read  in the defeat of reciprocity the downfall of President Taft's masterpiece,  the Washington pact, and ultimately  the defeat of , Taft and the Republican party"in the . next general election. Naturally they are not so  pleased about it as the English press  and would lay it to Canadian "stupidity" and "prejudice." !  The New York World says: "Popular stupidity has rarely won a more  decisive victory than it gained in  Canada yesterday," when reciprocity  was defeated at the polls."  The New York Tribune says: "Canadian voters -have evidently been  governed more by prejudice than by  reason in ��������������������������� rejecting a friendly otrade  agreement by which both Canada  and the. United States would undoubtedly "have profited.'- Though  Canada has temporarily refused to  sanction ��������������������������� a compact intended to expand American-Canadian commerce,  the United Stotes will not alter its  attitude of friendliness or cease to  hope that another agreement aiming  at the same results as the Taft-  Laurier "compact will some day be  approved by both, nations."  '   The    Boston   Globe says: "The re'-'  ' -"_*  suit is -a step* backward for Canada  and a distinct disappointment,to. this  country." ���������������������������-_ ;       "- ' - '   ' - ~   -l~~'J  which I have carried for 15 years.  We believed that i'n making the reciprocity arrangement we bad done  something which would be greatly to  the benefit of the people of Canada.  The electors have declared otherwise,  and I bow to their decision. I regret that we have been unable to  carry reciprocity, which I still believe would have .promoted the material advancement of Canada and  would have promoted the growing  friendship between the United States  and Great Britain. However, the  country has spoken. We must bow  to the inevitable, and I cheerfully do  so/'  '.Sir Wilfrid has no intention' of  deserting his party. He states that  he will "stay with the boys," and  we .may expect to see'him leading  the Opposition when Parliament convenes under the , Premiership of Mr.  R. L. Borden.  President Taft said when he heard  of the result': , "I am greatly disappointed. I had , hoped that it  would be put through to prove the  correctness of my judgment that it  would ,be a good thing for both  countries. ��������������������������� It takes two. to make a  bargain and if Canada declines we  can still go on doing . business at the  old stand."  'Sir Wilfrid 'Laurier accepts his defeat as might be expected of a statesman of his type: Said he: "I gladly  lay down   the   premiership, a burden  Commenting on the great success of  his party, Mr. R. L. Borden, in his  first public address since thc election  said^at Truro', N. S., Sep. 23, that  we must not forget the great army of  Liberals who"had joined hands with  the Conservatives aiid -voted for Canada:' He. assured- the people that"  the Conservative party would resume  government in no spirit of exaltation  but with*.the feeling of responsibility  and an earnest endeavor to promote  the progress of ' this strong young  nation. * In 30 years '��������������������������� the - people  would look back on- the election of  1911. as a national epoch.

I never feel .supple until I have had my  rold bath and a brisk rub with a rough  .  towel.''  Sleep should be invigorating, not unci vatiny. and the following theory was  advanced by a man who. in his earlier  days, had slept for many months under  the stars in void and jungle:  "It, is the mattress and pillow that  aie responsible for half the troubles of  the. insomniac. Thc ideal resting place  is the ground, with its natural covering of soft grass.. The next most comfortable bod is a wood lloor over-laid  with a soft carpet or rug. The yield-  iti_r mattresses do not re*t tbe. muscles  which remain all night in a condition  of alternating relaxation asd tension.  When., the sleeping-place is fixed and  ha ni ihey adapt themselves to it and  remain- quiescent.  " Furthermore, tin. ���������������������������-pine and nerve  cc.uiers of the bed sleeper are exposed  all night to the heat of the mattress,'  which is the cause of the sense of enervation so commonly felt when one  awakens.  '���������������������������The pill'ow is even moie. enervating  than the mattress. A well stuffed saddle, whose cleft centre permits tho circulation of air. soft, yet unyielding, is  th" .ideal head-rest.

These statistics show  that the value of the horses in the  United State-, of all classes at the time  the report was compiled last year, was  three billion, live hundred million dollars; the value of all fhe cattle, sheep  and hogs, two billion, five hundred million dollars: of all grain crops 1910,  three billion dollars; lhe cotton crop,  one billion dollars, while the value of  al the automobiles in the country was  but six hundred million dollars, showing  that the value of the horses in fhe  United Stales was almost throe billion  dollars greater than all the automobiles.  Tlie government report also states that  while the amount of increase in fhe  automobile industry annually is oue  hundred million dollars, that of .the  horse is five hundred million. This official report does not indicate that, the  horse is being crowded off the. United  States:   not   verv   fast at   anv  rate.  Now is. the time that secretaries of  trotting meetings should remember that  slouehify-dressed grooms and care-takers crowding on to the tracks in the  near vicinity of the judges' stand, does  a, mighty lot to offend the eyes of the  spectators and detract from the pic-  turesqueness of the scene. It is a fact  that at those meetings where secretaries  a.ttend to such details, the gate receipts are always larger and the patrons are much better pleased with the  .entertainment. At most of the meetings nowa-days, the drivers are proper-  attired in caps find jackets, although  it required some years before that detail was so generally adopted'; but it  has become such a well-established custom lhat a driver without, his colois  looks very much out of place. Jf is  just as essential to the attractiveness of  the scene for the grooms who appear on  the track to be neat and pleasingly  uniformed. It seems like, a small detail, but it tends to make a good impression on the spectators. That was  one of fhe secrets, of fhe success of ihe  running meetings���������������������������the bright colors  and neatly uniformed attendants tilled  an important part in the attractiveness  of the scene and did a large share in  popularizing the sport.

BACTERIA AS INDICATORS OF  SOIL  ACIDITY  The longer a soil is used for producing crops, the more acid it accumulates. As most cultivated plants cannot thrive in an acid soil, it becomes  necessary t.o employ larger and larger  quantities of lime for neutralizing the  increasing soil acidity. Tt thus becomes desirable to have a convenient  method for determining the acidity of  agricultural soils. Thc chemical methods heretofore used are cumbersome  and unsatisfactory.  Prof. J. G. .Lipman of Rutgers college has been conducting experiments  with a view to finding" a mote expeditious and more reliable method for determining soil acidiity and has obtained some interesting- lcsults by employing bacteria. His method resr.s upon  the well-known fact that, bacteria will  not multiply in a medium containing  more than a certain percentage of acid.  By comparing the growth of bacteria  in a number of. bullion nronarations  to which varying quantities of sterilized soil have been added, it may be  readily seen af what point fho growth  of the bacteria i.s stopped, and accordingly the amount of acid in tbo-soil  may be calculated. In one set of- experiments .imonia-prodncing .bacteria  were used, A known quantity of soil  is added to (he bullion, and after fhe.  action, of the bacteria has proceeded a  certain length of-time,, the amonia is  distilled into standard acid and .the  amount- determined. The" amount of-  ainonia produced would vary inversely,  with" fhe-acidify of fhe soil, since the  more acid thercis in the soil .the more  would" the activity "of- the} bacteria -be";  rest rained. Other experiments , wer.  made with nitrifying bacteria, in"\iii-.  trogen-frce media, -the amount of nitrogen producing used as",an indication of ihe absence of.acids. -'  THE CARRIER BEE  The bee. has been suggested, as a iniJi-.  f ary-despatch carrier because if returns  infallibly to its hive, however far away.

Hitherto, the only difficulty has .been  to find a form of despatch light enough  to be carried by a bee. This difliculiy  has been overcome by photography.

Solemnly the wee tot  gazed up at the loving mother faces  that bent over her. A tiny hand closed  confidingly over a linger that touched  il tenderly. The babe was no longer  .lonesome and afraid. She was eared  for and loved and her cries were  soothed.  ft was a warm,"sunshiny afternoon  towards the close of April, and the  ��������������������������� opening day of a splendidly equipped  Children 'a Shelter in the capital city  of Saskatchewan. From till parts of:  the city, interested men and women  bad come to witness flic ceremonies and  inspect for themselves thc Shelter in  which, as citizens of Uegiua, they felt  fhey had a share. Not only had the  Government, organizations and indi-  viluals assisted in the, furnishing, but  it was owing to the generosity of the  ��������������������������� citizens of Uoginu'in passing a by-law  to grant ten .thousand dollars for thc  erection of a children's Aid Society to  occupy a building, especially erected  for thc purpose, from plans embodying  all-the features accessary for a home  and which, in point of completeness, is  second to none in Canada.

Airs. IX I*. .MoColl, wife of the  Deputy minister of .-.duration, nnd Mr.  S, Spencer Pago, Provincial Superintendent of iVcglecfed and Dependent  Children,   .   Only-wilh- iho -past-half-dozen years  has tiie necessity I'or some such work  arisen within lhe province, of Saskatchewan. The "old Minors" wore a  fino class of .self-respeofnig people, with  regard for their responsibilities as parents. Following the influx of immigrants of a lower class some five or  six years ago, cases were discovered  of children ill-Iron led find neglected,  and of parents utterly unlit, to bo guardians. "Rev. 10. A. Henry, then minister  of Knox Presbyterian Church, took a  deep interest, and it was largely  through his efforts that a society was  formed. Thc matter was brought to the  attention of the Provincial Government  and at the request of the Government,  Mr. J. .1. Kelso,, to whom we nre indebted for the Children's trip through  the Province in the winter of J908-00.  The Pegina Society was organized in  July, 1000, and Mr. S. Spencer Page,  Clerk of the Legislative, Assembly, appointed Superintendant. of .Neglected  and Dependent Children for the Province. At that time, a small house, was  obtained, but some months , later^ a  larger residence -was rented, wliich  building was occupied until the present  quarters  were   completed.  En August, 1009, Mr. Page organized  a society in Prince Albert, of wliich  Mr. Pradshaw, M.L.A., is' President.  Much interest was taken in Saskatoon  in the organization of a Society. One  thousand dollars was collected as a nucleus with -whieh to commence work  and to establish a shelter. The city  Council was approached and made a  most generous response, setting aside  the   old   Saskatoon   Cottage   Hospital  and providing the salary of the matron,  free water, heat aud light. To the  Society was left' the providing  of the upkeep. Considerable work  has been done among the city  people and charge has been kindly  taken of two or three cases for the  Provincial Government paying for the  board  of outside  childron.  To the Regina Society, the Government gives a grant of five hundred  dolars a year, against which a charge  of two dollars and a half a week is  made I'or all children from outside  points. Ninety-five dollars, over and  above, was last year paid for actual  service   rendered.  During his tenure of office ot twenty  months, one hundred and twenty-one  children have come under the colitrol of  Superintendent Pago. Prom all parts  of the Province come letters from the  happy homes the children have found.  Of, seventy inspections made in the  summer of 1910, in not a single case  was it found advisable to remove a  child. All were treated kindly and  many of the little.ones had been adopted. The older children come under the  agreement  act,  as   in  Ontario.  Afr. Page is the inventor of a "splendid method of keeping tab on the wards  of the Society. In his oflices'in the  new Parliament JJuildings is a large  map .of the Province, marked off in  sections. The eye of a visitor is immediately attracted by perky' little tags  fastened here and there on the map.  These are strips of white paper tipped  with red to make them conspicuous, on  one side of which is written the name  of the child and address, and on the  other the names of tho guardians. This  is fastened on the map on the exact  spot, to the very section, where the  foster homo i.s located. -  While the underlying principle of  Children's Aid work is I/hat'" "Pre-  vonfion is better than cure,''' especially does this apply in Saskatchewan  and Alberta, where fho^work has been  undertaken before it has become absolutely imperative, and preparation  has ' been, made for emergensies for  years to come. As yet, there are no  large cities, no slum districts, in which  individuality is lost in thc crowd.

Thus the question, "How much is a  child .worth?" is being answered in  Saskatchewan in protection for the neglected and dependent; " in humane  treatment, that will arouse self "respect,  for thc delinquent, and in every effort  to give tho children within its bounds  an opportunity to live, to grow, to become clean,- healthy, happy, useful men  and women and a credit, instead of a  menace,  to  society.

TOMATO SEED OIL  Tomato seeds, once a waste product  of the canneries. of Italy, are now  ma-de to produce an oil, tho rapid-drying quality of which is' said to oe excellent. The oil' is used in the making of varnishes. Italy has many large  tomato canneries, and in that country  it is customary to carefully remove the  seeds before canning the fruit.

Tn a article "reviewed a few weeks  ago the writer quoted opinions expressed by Sir Almroth Wright/a British  authority on hygiene, in which 'he  placed himself on record as no believer  in the virtues of, washing,, fresh air,  nnd -physical exercise. A great deal of  washing. According to Sir Almroth, increases the microbes of the skin, aud he  docs "not think cleanliness is to be  recommended as a hygienic method."  Commenting on this- somewhat" startling conclusion, Thc -Medical Record  says  editorially:  '"Washing, of course, is by no means  a sine qua non in thc preservation of  health. There are very many extremely healthy persons in this country and  dn aM countries who wash but seldom  and live to an old age. The agricultural-laborer of England seldom or never  washes his whole, body, and his ablutions generally ^may- be described as  perfunctory, yet0 he is physically -a  splendidly healthy animal. Bathing is  a deeent, plasant, and esthetic custom,  but not absolutely necessary to the  preservation o'f good health.

Even after tho advent of tho British  in rtulUi there i.s recorded un instance  of a piece of muslin twunty-yards long  and one and one-quarter yards wide  weighing only fourteen ounces, AVith  the rudest implements the Hindu women  spun -those-a I most-impalpable -threiids,-  and wove fabrics that for fineness of  quality have never boon successfully  imitated elsewhere. With tho decay of  fho native Hindu courts, the chief customers, the demand ceased and thc  manufacture for tho most part stopped.  Dacca today is little more than a ruin.  But the art survives to a certain extent.  Weaving in India divides itself in,to  two branches���������������������������hand loom and power  loom wonving. The proportion of hand-  loom-made cloth to powor-looin-mado  doth is fully two to ono.  Thc native hand loom is the most  primitive affair,' ft is now thc same as it  was thirty centuries ago. Tho old fly  shuttle looms of a century ago are agos  in advance of the fndian hand loom  used by thc native weavers throughout  India. * Of course, there are a number  of fly-shuttle looms in successful use in  certain localities, but these are not  favored  by the natives.  The manufacture of cotton in India  dates back to the earliest times, Yn  the Sanskrit records mention is made  of it three thousand years ago.  Herodotus, about 4!>0 U.C., speaks of  the trees of Tndia bearing as their fruit  fleeces more delicate and beautiful than  those of sheep, and of tho Indians using  them for the manufacture of clothi  Prom India cotton cloth was gradually  introduced into Greece, Eome and Sicily  before the Christian era. Cotton awnings wore used in the theatre at the  ApoJlinarian games, and Caesar afterward eoverod the Roman Forum with  them, as also the Sacred Way from his  owu house to the Capitolino Hill.  To Air. Alfred .Johnston the whole  thing was perfectly clear���������������������������that is, of  course, after ir. was all over. Jt never  occurred to him that ii could have been  otherwise.    He   didn't   worry about   it.  He was twenty-five and a Civil servant, with all the usual attributes both  of twenty-iive and of a Civil servant���������������������������  that is to say, in the first place, he had  not quite forgotten the moaning of ambition. He still dreamed of some vague  mysterious greatness lhat should some  day descend on him and transport him,  blushing and protesting, to the high  places of the earth; ho still believed  in improving each shining hour and, at  the same time, his mind; and hc was  in-love.  But in the second place, 'as a Civil  servant, ho often doubted,whether ambition was not slightly infra dig. His  dreams haij, a habit of tailing off from-  the prospect of millions to the^prospect  of a -"J5.T7.00 "special" increment next  April;" ho questioned tho value of improvement either of.time or mind; and  he wished he wercjiot in Jove.  JJ.ut Mr. JohnstoVs love was not an  overmastering passion, a fever of longing, an emotion so intense as to inak-3  or mar his life. It was rather, a very  neat and proper adjunct to an existence  of commendable respectability.  He realized' this, himself, and it distressed him. He wondered'whether lie  was justified in considering himself in  Jove; whether he won I'd be justified if  it were any use, if his salary were  "anything like," and if" Edith would  hear of it. Por Edith, of course, never  had heard of it.  . lt was at this perplexing stage of his  career that Mr. Johnston was suddenly  thrown off his balance by the unexpected realization of his worldly ambitious.  Tte" knew that Prank-son had died, but  hc had "6 idea that ho stood any,chance  of being given his position. A hundred  and seventy a year, all at once! In  three years he might .get. married; he  might almost-risk it  immediately! ���������������������������"   *  But surprises never come singly. Por  nearly a week he gloried" in the honor  of his promotion, und then,' one evening  when he was sitting alone in his rooms  drawjng up a revised schedule of expenditure,  she  came.  -  "Aro you 'sure?", he demanded incredulously. ��������������������������� '   '-��������������������������� /  "Quite .certain," the landlady replied with conviction. '"Afiss Nccham, she  said, and:she wishes to-.see Air. Johnston;    Shall  [-show 'her up -here?"

' "-Now I'm going to explain myself,  Mr. .Johnston.". she said very seriously,  but with a jolly twinkle in her eyes.  "Oh!   bnl   first  I     must    congratulate.  =y_o ii .-1--��������������������������� ������������������������������������������������������  Johnston muttered something ridiculous, and rose to expel tho landlady's  cat, Edith stopped him and took the  cat on her knee.  "It's going to be rather diflicult, I  am afraid," she went on. with her  eyes bent on the cat. "I hardly know  whero to begin." Of course, you know,  father thinks rather a lot of you, both  in tho oflice and out of it."  _-_..'{L~thoughi,-.!��������������������������� said- Johnston,- que������������������������������������  tioningly. "that lie might have had  something lo do with my getting  i'Vunkson \s post. "  ".Ves, he had: something," she admitted.    "Bui  that   isn't  tlie  point."  Hor eyes were still waisting their  beauty on  the purring animal.  "Did you ever know Jack O'Plynn?"  she demanded without warning, looking full in his face. "Ho wont out to  India a year ago; he passed for the  Indian civil, you know."  "J .don't think I ever met him,"  Johnston said.  ��������������������������� "Well," she continued with a rush,  "to put it very bluntly, Mack aud J  were very fond of ono another, but  father wouldn't lot me have anything  fo do with him. I don't know why; it  was most unfair and ridiculous. But  we manage to write to one another, and  he'll be coming home iu about eighteen  months.  She paused for a moment and Johnston wondered whether there was anything he could say.  "Father found'one of Jack's letters  the other day, and read it. There was  an awful scene and hc said I was never  to write again. But L'm going to.  And then he���������������������������he hinted that T ought  ���������������������������to ought to marry you." Johnston  started. "He said that you had said  something to him���������������������������."  "J���������������������������-I don't remember," Johnston  stammered. The situation was unprecedented. He could not find words to  express himself for a full minute.,  "it was awfully good of voir to come  and explain/Miss Needham," he said  at length.    "I quite  understand. ������������������������������������������������������ Of  course, you must have known that T  have a deep regard for you. You have  saved  us both  much   pain."  The   interview   terminated   ton   miii-   .  utes later,  with a most satisfactory ar-~  rangoment.    Naturally  nothing, was  to  be said to.,Air. Noodham.   Jle was to be-  left  to  imagine  that  Jack  had  passed  out of his daughter's life, and that Alfred Johnson had taken his place.'  And -Alfred  Johnston   was,   to   all   appearances, to do so.  He was proud to be allowed to play  this part. He felt that it was a fitting  tribute to his regard for Edith���������������������������that  regard that had so nearly grown/into  love.  As he sat down  to  think it all over ' r-   '*'  after  she  had  left,  ho  was  immensely  impressed by the courage and the true  ,  womanliness that  must  have  promptcu  her to act as she had done.   Tt was tho   "  straightforward,    honest    course,     but,-- -  there was not one woman in a thousand'--  '  who would  have taken  it.    He envied  that fellow O'Flynn.- ;  It was some two months after Edith's -  visit to his rooms that ho found her at ���������������������������;.";���������������������������  the.Wilson's dance,'sitting out by her- , ", -  self.

WIRELESS   RAILROAD  .SIGNALS  For sonio time past the Prussian and  Bavarian authorities have been experimenting with a system of wireless (olograph signals for railroads which is  said to^'promiso good results. An aerial  transmitter wire" is carried on tho telegraph poles at the sido of the road with  transmitting stations in tho signal boll  towers, and "a wire loop antenna -is  placed on.top of one of the cars oil the  train. By this moans signal to "stop.'"'  "go aliead," "go slow," audso on,  can bo transmitted to moving trains  over an effective rango of 12 kilometers  ���������������������������nearly 7% miles.'' Tho average distance between the boll towers on Gorman railroads is only IS kilometers, so  that the range of the signals is amply  sufficient.  99 THE ENDERBYPRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, September 28, 1911  Keep Warm when the winter  comes  Fleece-Lined  Fine Wool  Prices:  '  1.50 to $7.50  " Per Suit  Finest Quality for  the Ladies  and Children  For Winter  Heavy Pants  Socks  Sweater Coats  Everything the  Best for the Men  in the Camps  Limited  GENERAL MERCHANTS  Teach 'Agriculture, in Public Schools  and What it Means to the Children  In   tbe    United  .schools are under  dividual   states,  Canada.  States,   the public'province has an authorized text-jbbok  control of the in-'!on    agriculture. Not   one   public  s    is    the case in  school is trying    to show that agri-  much   a   busibess    as  in ��������������������������� school  Curiously enough, says the ;culture is as  Canadian Courier, thc country  .schools in nearly every state are a  failure--just ns they arc in every  province in Canada.   ��������������������������� However, there  are signs that some  recognise this' failure,  toba lias recognized it. But there  are some country schools in the  United States which arc not failures.  Thoso aro the schools established by  the national - Government of the  United States in thc "reclaimed"  districts of Dakota and . Montana.  Tho secret of those schools is that a  high school education may be obtained without leaving the farm.  Speaking of these ' schools, Mr.  Frank G. 'Carpenter, the well-known  journalist, says: "Among the interesting features of these schools  are the gardens and littlo farms connected with them. The children  learn practicultnre by raising plants,  .handling dry   goods,    running a fac-  ' tory    or    managing  an  electric-light  : plant.     Is    it   any  wonder that the  rural population   of Eastern Canada  of the states is growing more slowly than tho ur-  just  i>'S Maui-, ban    population?    Is it any wonder  that the farmer who has mado money  antwherc in Canada moves into town  "to give the boys a chance to get an  education ?"  PRESIDENT TAFT'S   SCARE  A special from Washington to the  Toronto Globe says: "Canada's refusal to ratify the reciprocity agreement with the United States means a  redoubled   cflort   ,on the part of the  .Democratic party and the insurgent  Republicans,    who    together   control  . Congress, to bring about a general  reduction  of   thc    tariff.

The teaching is   .  ! ������������������������������������������������������  all in tho spirit of the farm, and its I  aim* is to make the children love the I  farm and to   have   them stay on it.  In the past the country schools have  been managed by city  teachers,  who  havo  tought  thc  children to  despise  agriculture and    tried to make them  leave the farms for thc city."  ling in this country. Now other  , means must be found. Thc reciprocity bill which was passed at'the extra session of Congress and is now  i on the statute books, will not be re-  .pealed, at least for the next two  ; years. This is thc general belief of  'all factions    in    Washington.      What  These schools are graded schools,  usually situated- in villiages. The j  children are brought in from the  farms in carriages and taken home  every evening. The farm children  have thus all the advantages of  town schools and yet'"are never ont  of touch with farm life. The school  garden and the teaching in agriculture counteract the tendency to think  that farming is the work of a peasant and hot a business man.  J-ust think, that here in progressive Canada, not one farmer's child  from coast to coast is taught a  single lesson    in   farming. .   Not one i  j may happen when Congress convenes,  two yoars from next September, is a  matter of    mere   speculation.     It is  j the    general    opinion,  however,  that  I the United States will not repeal the  law but will    remain  willing indefin- ���������������������������  itcly to   trade    with Canada on the j  same    basis    whenever    Canada    be- '.  comes ready  Is not the policy of this store.
