Canada's export trade of wood
pulp is increasing annually and
during 1910 amounted .in value to
five million, seven hundred thous^
antlrdollars, according to information furnished to the Dominion
Forestry Branch by the Department of Trade and Commerce.
The three hundred and twenty
nine thousand tons of pulp exported was an increase of forty-
eight ..thousand tons over the
amount shipped in 1909. Wood
pulp exportations-in 1910 amounted to seventy per-cent of the
total produced in Canada, whereas in 1909 the proportion was only sixty- three per-cent. Eighty-
eighty per-cent of the export was
mechanical pulp, and the remaining twelve per-cent was chemical
pulp. During 1910, over three-
quarters of the pulp exported
went to the United States, while
shipments to nearly all other
countries decreased. The United
Kingdom takes most' of the remaining one-quarter, although
exports to these countries have
fallen off greatly. Particularly
is this so with chemical pulp, not
one-seventh the amount being
shipped in 1910 as in 1909.

Has it ever occurred to you that in
building a frame house, costing say
$2,000, you are losing every year
$100, or 5 per cent, in depreciation,
apart from the cost of repairs, as'the
life of a frame house is about 20
years-at the-outside? -^--_-.l
Build brick and you will have a
house, that needs no repairs to tho
walls and will be worth as much, or
more, 50 years hence as it, is toJday,
saving you quite a considerable sum
in painting, insurance and fuel meanwhile. A large stock of first-class
brick now on hand.
85 per cent of all headaches are the
result of eyestrain. Are -you troubled
that way? If so, consult S. L. Taube

He was still  jjailiir ou Barbie,, but,, [couldn't help  hill feel, mighty sorry lfor him. He had  ya'td sill them years 'at bho waa away at  ������������������jhuol, out o''the joy of bis own heart,  finikin' for his pay* in tbe time wheu  ftti-.M I'ome back aii' bo his chum again,  snv' he:o they was with a wall of ice  Between 'em "an' nairy a lovin' glance  i'n melt it down.  The' come a warm spell toward the  lasM)' she mouth; an' oue ovenin' just  my., we '.vas fiaishin' supper wo hoard a  <nj- o' distress in a man's voice���������������������������an'  Hie. cry sounded like "Barbie!" ������������������  ���������������������������ce.c'kon'all our hearts atood still, an' X  n.chi.n '.ve all thought oxactly tho samo  thing, la about a minute tlio cry came  "again, aa' tho ol1 man jumped to his  f.cot an' pulled his gun. "IE that's Sil-  v<<j_ Dick," sez he, "I'll kill him."  Barbie had also "sprung up, an' she  looked him square in the eyes. "If you  ���������������������������.-.nil a hair of his head I'll���������������������������I'll da  ��������������������������� .i-ro s-hootia' myself.  ������������������Iie pulled a little gun out of her bo-  40111, an ' we all 3tood quiet for a uno-  itmnt. it was easy to see 'at she wasn't  Muffin"; but I'm pretty sure that .labez  ^^' 1 had different ideea as to what she  ������������������_.an't. Jabez thought she meant him-  m!\f; but he hadn't got tho name 6'  Cast Steel for nothin' an' a sort of a  jp'rm smile crept onto his face. We  atood still for a moment, an' then we  went out together, an' before long we  i_eanl the sound again���������������������������tt long, waver-  ii)', ghostly^ call in the gatherin' twilight.  SVe hurried along, an' purty soon we  .*iw a man lyin' across tho trail. The  oi man hold hia gun in hia hand, an'  ifo did Barbio, while 1-walkod'a step  behind doin' a heap o' thinkin'. If the  d.' man killed "Dick, Barbie would shoot  __erselt"; if any one stopped the ol' man  that one would take on weight exceed-  in' fafct. unless he crippled the ol' man  Srst. I. finally made up my mind that  1 would try to overpower the ol' man  ri th out hurtin' him, an' ol' Cast Steel  sras built like a grizzly. I didn't enjoy  that walk aa much as some I've took.  w"huu we got close to the figger lyin'  - hi the trail we all walked a little  eronchy. ft looked quite a little like  Dick; "but when we saw it wasn't nothin-" but that fool Hawthorn with a  busted leg.'.we three looked like the re-  wsption committee-of' the Foolish Society.  f hustled back an' got Hanson an' a  aonple o' boys aad an ol' door, an' we  fetched him home an' put him to'bed  ������������������n' sent for the doctor���������������������������an' that waa  tie worst luck that ever happened to  _d! Dick. 5fou know how a woman is  with anything hurt or sick; they're the  & mo the world over. A right atrickly  wise marrifd mac would havo everything bioke excupt hia pocketbook, an'  piece out the method he was usin'. He  .wasn't such a fool as ho looked, by  .ousid'able mauy rods. He talked a  neap about tbe sacrifice, ho had mado  tor the girl back in England, an' how  ���������������������������uuch he had loved her an' how much  Barbio had comforted him, although  ���������������������������.veu yet ho could not foget hor. Onco  Harbio asked him what her namo was.  L-'or a moment he didn't answer, aa'  diets ho sez iu a low voice, .-Mice Lo-  Uoyne. I lifted my face quick an'  _;avo him a look, but ho wasu't ssoticin'  inc. I didn't say anything; but I  couldn't help wondorin' if this Alice  LeMoyne had anything to do with the  ilancor what had married into the  Clarenden family, an' then died. It  was au odd name, but still 1 didu't  reckon the' was a patent, ou it.  Finally.I could toll by their talk that  Iiarbie had told him about Dick, an'  then I know the jig was about up. Uo  alius spoke o' Dick in a gentle, soothin'  way, makin' every excuse for him; an'  thia made her think him a noblo-mtnd-  ed feller! an' tho most natural outcome  was for 'em to just buneh their woes  an' cling together for comfort. She  ailuu used to sit by his side in the twilight,, singin' sorrowful love songs to  him, an' once I caught aim holdin' her  hand. You see. she was just naturallj"  hungry for somethin.' to pot an' care  for; luck offered a spavined Englishman, an' she was tryin' to mako tlie  boat oi; it.  Jabea .aavvicd this to tho ,queen'a  taste, an' ho got gentle an' lovin' to  Uarbie, an' did all he could to square  himself; so that-poor old Dick wasn't  much more'n a memory, which is one  o' the complications absence i3 apt to  cause after it gets tired o' makin' the  heart grow fonder.  But hang it, I didn't like this Englishman more than the law require.!.  Tho' didn't seem to-be, much harm to  his hair was white at the temples,  an' the' was a wistful look hi his eyes  which was mighty touchy. Barbie was  more chummy with him too, an 7 they  was edgin' back to ol' times; but I  was darn glad to seo Hawthorn finally  admit that hc was sutUciently recovered  lo drive over an' soo what had become  of his own lay-out.  The very first meal that wo ot, alone,  however, showed that the old sore wasn't plumb hoaled ovor yet. Jabaz  couldn't, wait any longer, so he called  for a show-down as soon as; our food  began to catch up with our appetite.  '' Has Clarence- popped the question yet,  then he'd be sure o' lots of pectin  Thev alius want to spoil a fellf:r when  to's on the flat of his back. When he'?-  tralkiu' around on his own feot all he  ar.ods to do is to express a desire, an'  - thoy vetoe it on general principles, an'  if ter ' they've talked themselves dry  they send* out aa' get the preacher to  fluis-h tho job; but when that same vile  apeciment of masculine humanity gota  ���������������������������joine of his runnin' gear damaged, why  they bed him on rose leaves, feed him  on "honey, an', good or bad, they give  hini whatever ho wants. This particular   feller   wanted  Barbie,  an'   Barbie   was niitrhty gentle with lum.  Snmiitiincs it Roetrnrro���������������������������me���������������������������t-hat=the-  qoly men who can understand a woman  ���������������������������Kre the men who work a lot with the  dumb ������������������:reatures. Take an animal now,  wild-or tame, an' it hates to confess a  woitkross; it'll just go on head up an'  avos ihshin' till it drops iu its tracks  ���������������������������so will a woman. Take the fiercest  frmnli- animal the' ia, an' it's all mother nn the inside. Why. they're over-  hist in Mv  adoptin' somethin'   'at don't  --.igliHvrbelong-to -em. .Sometime? _rhfy  go to'work an' adopt a littlo straggler  _h;.t in a regular way is their daily  food: an' it ain't no stop-mother affair  aeithor, il'a tho real thing.  The wild animals are the best to  ttudv. 'cause tho tamo ones have been  dtpoili'd by associatin' with man. Woll,  .hi. wild "animals spend all their spare  ������������������.imo dressin' up an' thoy hate to get a  ton wet; but when it comes to love or  dutv. why fire, water, nor the foar o'  man ain't goin' to Btop 'om; so again I  te-/. 'at tho man what can savvy the  .rild animals can get purty nigh within  hail'm' distance of a woman, an' that's  gptt'm' close; but you want to remember this, no animal uover tells the truth  ���������������������������,o an outsider. The principle part o'  vheir life is spent in throwin' folks off  .heir trail, an' 'thoy'alius make thoir  lairs in the most secret places. If a  fxller ever gets ; to know 'om oven a  little he has" to be mighty patient an'  mightv careful, an' above all things, ho  mustn't never get thc idee that ho  know, every last thing about 'em tho'  te to know,"'cause no man novar knowa  that. Some men try to estimate a woman by their own earthy way o doin'  kliiuns.

It wai i.U I  could do to keep from stickin' a pin  into him.  ''Barbie," I sez one day. as inuo^ent  as an-fnjun, "I overheard our aouored  guest tell you that a girl by tho name  of Alice LeMoyne put a crack-in"his  heart over the water.'.' v-  -  .

"Tt does sound like a circus, that's  a fact," aez I. "Well, you broak it  to him gently that Alice LeMoyne is  dead. Don't ask mo any questions, but  do be careful not to shock "aim, ha  seems purty high strung."  You might as well use sarcasm on a  steer as oa a woman; Barbie went up  to .iawtliorn with her eyes full o' pity,  while 1 waited below an' made up pictures o' the crockadile tears he'd puvp  up for her. All of a sudden she gave  a shriek. I hit the stairs, goin' forty  miles an-hour, an' there was Barbio  with her "hands clasped, lookin' down  at. the Englishman.  honoy?" sez he.  '' About twice a day on the average,''  sez Barbie, chillin' up a trifle; "but 1  don't think he stands much chance. I  like him an' ho is kind an' good; but 1  don't reckon I could ever marry him."  Thc ol' man didn't flare up, same as  he would have once. He just sat still,  lookin' at his plate, an' that was the  hardest blow he had ever struck her.  Sho asked me twice that afternoon if  I. thought he was fail'm'.  Next day at dinner Jabez "finished  his rations, an' then leaned-back an'  looked lovin'ly at Barbie for a minute.  " Little "girl," ho sez, "t know 'at you  don't like to hurt mo intentional; but  you havo give me a mighty sight of  heartaches in my time. I have alius  aimed to do what seemed best for you,  air it'has generally been a hard job. I  haven't complained much; but I'm gettin' old, child, I'm gettin' old. It's uot  for myself, Barbie, it's all for you, for  you an' for���������������������������for the mother you never  knew; but who made mo promise to  watch over an' protect ya. T can't  speak of her, Barbie; but when I meet  her out yonder I want to be able to tell  her that aa far as I was able I've done  mv part.  "This Dick has been gone a year, an'  never a word to ya to let you know ������������������ven  whether he's alive ornot. This ain't love,  honey; he waa only after my money.

Well,  uot so you could notice it! Course he  wasn't quite so physically able as ouce;  but I nevor saw him put up a toppier  mental exhibition than he did right  then. Barbie didn't have a word to  say that afternoon until , about five  o'clock. Then'she suddenly looked up  from somo reports we was goin' over,  an' sez, "Happy, if you had gone  away from me like Diek did, what  would be the only thing what  would  ' * Poor ol' Dick, I wonder how it happened/" but never one tear got by  her eyelids���������������������������nevor one single tear.  From that ou it was plain saiiiu'.  Barbie didn't put up any more fight  to either of 'em. She told 'em open  an' fair'that she would never in the  world have consented if she hsid  thought that Dick was still alive; but  u: they was-willin' to take what part  of her heart was leu why they wa< welcome to it. Jabez was pleased at any  kind ot a compromise 'at would give  him his own way, an' Clarence, poor  dear, wasu't a proud lot. The .flesh-pots,  of ligypt was about all the argumouts  needed to win hia vote, confound him.

The first of November was selected  for the weddiu' day; an' Jabez told  'em 'at hia present would bo a trip  to Europe an' a half- interest ia the  ranch. I had the makin's of si good  many cyclones in my system those days.'  (To bo Continued.)  CHINESE  EDUCATIONAL PLANS  Chinese plans for general education  are surprisingly ��������������������������� progressive and commendable. There is, naturally, a lack  of competent teachers, aud of fuuds  for financing such a uatiou-wide installation of modern education as is projected. Tho increase of the number  of students sent to America on the remitted Boxer indemnity funds is a  hopeful sign. The government intends to maintain an averago of 400 of  its young mon iu America, aside from  those who go at thoir "own charges.  A great school���������������������������and the discerning  will marvel at this fact and its moaning  ���������������������������has been- built by the Chinese government at Peking for tho solo purpose  of educating, at the nation's expense,  picked young men to be prepared for  further education in tho United States.  These youths are the flower of the empire, and from every province and "dependency���������������������������from remote Tibet, troubled  Manchuria, virile Szechuen, progressive  Kwantung; every section of China will  send its political leaders to Peking to  learn foreign ways from a score of  American teachers. Six hundred is  the capacity of this school. Most of  its boys, it is claimed, are Christians;  and all have cut off their cues. Tho  students who qualify hero are sent to  America to continue their collegiate and  professional training; lator to return  with American idoals to the service  of their own  nation.  ��������������������������� oil.  he waa enough to make a snake  shriek.

In the  past millions, upon" millions have, been  spent, and have- boen utterly 'wasted,  in constructing the gigantic ship canal  to join the Atlantic and the Pacific, aud  until quite recently it appeared as  though America would havo-to acknowledge that it also could not carry the  scheme through.  It was in 1880 that De Lesseps founded the first Oceanic Canal Company  with a capital of $60,000,000, and that  scores of thousands of men, provided  with evory labor-saving device, set to  work, Year after year the work was  continued, though disease carried away  enormous numbers. Thon tliere eareo  a great crash, aud the scheme came to  nought. Wheu the company waa forced  into liquidation thore was a deficiency  of ovor $375,000,000, and only oue-Sft'h  oil the real work had beon done.  Valuable plant, costing some $30,000,-  000, was allowed to rust away until it  became quito useless, while the portions  whieh had been cut rapidly filled in.  -l!h is^wa8-the^state=.ef^ailai ra_when_thc  United States took up the burden. It  was estimated that the total cost would  be $200,000,000. but the actual amount  will be far greater.  Strange to say, however, records  show that somo fow hundred years ago  there was in use a natural waterway  between the Atlantic and tho Pacific.  Below the Panama Canal there  stretches ������������������ sluggish rivor, the Atrato,  at. tho end of the giant Cordillera, lt  runs through low,"swampy country into  the Gulf of Darion. Down this river  many of tho earlier adventurers sailed  until they came to a great gorge  which led thc latter through tho lulls,  and so they were able, to nail from  ocean to ocean.  Somehow or other this gorge was  forgotten. Thc United Stales actually  proposed to connect the Atrato and  the Jarado by a canal, but afterwards  Thero it is with the tool marks upoa  it made by the unknown cutting instrument wielded by the workmen ' al  ���������������������������Barneses* II., over.'thirty-two. centuries  ago. Probably this waa tho" greatest  and-- boldest engineering project ever  attempted by man, until receut days.  Por over a score years huudreds- of  thousands of slaves toiled at the great  work, in the days when Egypt was at  the height of its glory.  Then one day it was decreed that if  the work were finished disaster would  overtake Egypt, and ao operations wero  abandoned. Long afterwards, Darius  I. off Persia, cleared out tho canal and  partially finished tho work. In fact,  it was made, serviceable for the passages of boats by the Arab conqueror  of Egypt. Then thore camo many  changes, and the great waterway wan  forgotten as completely as though it,  had never existed.  It is ao fiction, it ia the very truth,  that at the present time this enormous  canal, though dry, is in existeuco. Yet  the Suez Canal was built at a first  cost of $100,000,000. Some time tho  old canal may be brought into use  again;' undoubtedly it. would be of the  vastest importance to England in timo  of war as it would open out anothor  way to India through British, or .semi-  British, territory.  Keceutly we have seen tho successful accomplishment of telegraphing  across the Atlantic without the use  of- wires, while for many years tliere  have been wires under the bed of the  sea. Boi'ore the first under-sea wire  was laid another inter-continental project was actually started, though it  was lost sight of, and a vast amount  of work was done in connection with  it.  . Far in the North of America, in the  forests of Alaska, is a lir^o bolt of  clearing amongst the pines. Gold discoverers recently have come across this  belt of cleared land which stretchofl  through the huge primeval woods. All  this work, which has now passed beyond the memory of man, was done only  half a century ago in connection with  a scheme of telegraphing between  America and  Europe.  The submarine telegraph was thon  unknown, and many schemes occupied  tho thoughts of man, who wished t������������������  bring the new world iu touch with the  old. So it was that the United Statos,  after consultation with Great Britain.,  and "GusBia, decided to erect a telegraph line through British North America, Alaska, and Siberia to  Kuropc.  As a  result,  tho Western  Telegraph  Company was entrusted with the work _  of constructing the line, and  for, over  two   years   proceeded   with   it.       The  Telegraph   Trail   consisted   of   a   wide  road,   which   was   cut   north   for   over  a thousand miles.     It. was the submarine telegraph which put an.end to the '  work.     Today this enormous engineering enterprise might never" have existed, .but tne great Telegraph .Trail, still, '  remains "unfinished  and forlorn:1       -/ -  THE ELEPHANT AND THE LAMP  An. odd experience fell to'the'lot of''  three men who were on a tiger-hunting  expedition   in   India.    To   prevent   the '  invasion   of  mosquitoes  and   other "in- "  sects  that would be attracted by <the  light in their quarters tho  hoavy eot-,  ton curtain which formed tho door of- ���������������������������  tho  tent  was  closed,  and     the   thre*  friends, were chatting across'tho table  when  suddenly  the whole tent  shook;-  and as they  looked  round  to seo the  cause  tho  heavy   curtain  was  roughly  snatched away and in the open doorway appeared  thc  uead of a  big ������������������le-'  pbant.  The men had no time to catch up  their rifles. They knew bythc appear-"  ance of the animal that he meant mischief. Lifting up the roof of tho tent  with his he-ad'he threateningly swuug-  otit his trunk at the man nearest him.  At this the hunter sprang, to his feet  and seizing the lighted lamp from the  table hurled it with all his strength  against the animal's forehead. ' The  glass broke at the blow and the blaz-  -ing=oihcov-ered=thQ-anijisili8-trmilc=-with==  a sheet of flame. With a crv of terror the boast drew frantically back,  shook off tho enrtain, and fled across the  country���������������������������vanquished by a ninglo blow  from an oil-lamp. It wae a fortunate  act, for the animal was no doubt a  "rogue" and would probably Kavo  killed ono or more of the men'.  decided to go on with the Panama  Canal scheme. This natural strait has  been forgotten, probably having been  lost in the wild tangles of exuberant  vegetation. Some day it may bo found  again, as gold dust Iihs been found  iu tho vicinity of the Atrato.  In the town library of Nurembnrg  is preserved a globe made by John  Schooner in 1i520, on which there was  carefully tra-v-ed- the passage through  the Isthmus of Darieu. Long before  the' French took in hand the Panama  Canal mauy schemes has boon promulgated; in fact, the oldest is nearly  400 years old.   '.-"'  Curiously enough with regard to the  Suez Canal the romnants of another old-  time, waterway'are" in existence which  might have been utilized inatoad of the  <-anal constructed by De Lessepe. To  this day,.thoso stretches through a hun-  -Ircd miles of rock and desert a straight  cutting from the lied Sea to the Nile.

Yet among the pre'ttieet corset covers  of the prosent day are those that fit  into a peplurn at'the waist lino, a narrow insertion or tiny band of folded  lawn covering the join and rendering  a "draw tape" superfluous, and those  who have the: fulness at tho upper edgo  gathered daintily, to fit, once and for  all,_ under a similar finishing band to  which the lace or embroidery around  the neck ie joined.  Reference is not made to the elose  fitting corset cover, which reminds oue  of a fitted lining. These poplum corset  covers have a slight fulness at tho  waist line, gathered into the band, and  almost as much at the upper edges, before finishing, as if thc beading were  to be used, with baby ribbon to draw  it clone. And they yield nothing to tho  other style/either in prettiness of appearance or perfection of finish. Moreover, they quite eliminate all unnecessary "bunching" at the 7waist line,  which advantage, considering the pre-  sent'stylos, is recommending them more  and more to "those who know."

An Admiral's Narrow Escape  Ashore  ���������������������������I  While  the  adventures  of   thc  average naval oflicer occur at sea, the most  exciting of any in the life of Captain  Prank   Iiclm   took   place several  year*  ago,   when  he   thought     himself  quite  safely ashore.      But then Helm is anything but an average naval oflicer.     To  his friends the Captain' is best  known  as the "Admiral    of    the    Philippine  Navee," the propriety of which title is  somewhat   in   doubt,   for   there   is   no  Philippine "Navee" in the first place,  and       secondly,       Ilehn       maintains  that     were     there     any   such   thing  in       existence,      he    ' would       have  none of it.     What Helm really does is  to take complete charge of navigation  in the Philippine Islands, and he does  it very well indeed.     His lighthouses  alone save hundreds of ships each year,  and  he  is worthy of any insignia his  friends decree.     But to return to what  Ifelra avers is the most thrilling incident  of his eventful career.     It happened, he  tells us, in Pershing's famous campaign  in Mindanao, and  that,  sayB the Captain, was in 1903.

For more than a century the  old, bell, etill preserved in Liberty'Hall,  haB been a shrine for countless pilgrims  from every corner of the civilized world  who have .seen the large erack running  the entire-length of the bell, and unfitting it for duty.     This break was always thought to have occurred while Li-  berty Bell was tolling at the funeral of  Chief Justice. John Marshall,'on JnJy 8  183o, but other stories,ai odd intervals  have gone the rounds, and this one is  the latest. ���������������������������     ". -'.   -   t y   ~  Now, more than three-quarters. of ~a  century, after .the. old bell-was silenced  comes a man who declares that none of  the more-or-less accepted versions of  how it came to' be.eraeked is correct-  that his version alone is .the true ex-  r'I name was Downing���������������������������������������������Major Jack,' we  used to call him���������������������������and he was a well-  known character in Philadelphia at that  time.  '' ' Come here!' he called to ine and  to several boys whom he spied in the  square. After he had corralled six or  eight of us���������������������������1 don't remember exactly  how many���������������������������he told us that he wanted  us to ring the Liberty Bell in honor  of Washington's birthday. The idea  pleased us very much���������������������������we boys were  not in the habit of ringing the old bell  ���������������������������and we agreed to do it.  "Then Downing climbed into the  steeple of the State House and tied a  rope to thc clapper of the bell. Coming down again, he put the end of this  rope into our hands and Instructed us  to pull with all our might, which we  did.  "Wo were working away, and the bell  had struck, so far as I ean recall, about  ten or a dozen times, when we noticed  a change in the tone. We kept ringing, thongh, but, after a while, the  eteeplekceper noticed the difference,  too. Surmising that something might  be -wrong, he told ns to stop pulling  the rope. Then he climbed back into  the steeple, we boys following behind  "On the side of the bell that hung  toward Walnut Street we found that  there was a big craek, a foot or fifteen  inches Jong. Downing then told as to  rnn along home.     We obeyed, d  "What happened after that I forget  ���������������������������hoy-like I didn't do' any. worrying  and heard no-more-about-the cracking  of the bell until sqmc-years later. Then  however,- and- many-times since, I have  read of Low the bell came to be cracked, bnt never have I seen the version  which 1 have just given.

They bore an invitation  from, their master to come ashore and  call uponhim.  To me that looked very much like an  invitation to come on and be chopped  up.   There was no choice, so I followed  the messengers.   Thc Dato told me that  Pershing had got the better of him that  morning, and that he had submitted and  was now anxious to sho.w..Pershing that  he" was as good as his word. Ho proposed  to send  me on to the American  commander, giving me safe conduct and an  escort.    Well,  I   wasn't  altogether  so  smo of his intentions, but I palavered  ii way and expressed my appreciation of  his royal consideration, ai:d .prepared to  say "ready."  At a sign from the Dato -'ivc of the  most villainous-looking.Aloros Helm had  ever seen came forward with drawn  krisses. What a krisa is the Standard  Dictionary does not say, but we presume that it was a weapon sharp enough  and long enough to make trouble enough. Anyhow, we read that (still with  drawn krisses) three of the Moros placed themselves at the head of thc despairing Captain, whilo the other two  stationed themselves at the rear. He  goes on:  1 had no weapon but an old navy revolver that, would not cock, but I  thanked the chief for his courtesy while  other emotions than gratitudo fought  for the mastery.  Our_ route lay through a country dotted with cottas or small groups of native huts. We had not gone far when  one of tho fellows in front suddenly  disappeared in one of these cottas and  I guessed that some trick was up. A  littlo farther on another disappeared,  and soon after the last of the vanguard  correct, he hastened to protest.

It was three years later���������������������������in 1S.V>  ;that, according to him, thc cracking  t the Liberty Bell occurred.     That is  year usually given  as the one in  which the mishap occurred,     but Mr  Bunch'is emphatic in his statement that  the,.bell was not cracked on thc- occasion  of Chief Justice Marshall's funeral.     Here is his own version of the  occurrence:  "The Liberty Bell was cracked, as I  remember on Washington's birthday,  -isrfo, and this is the way it was done:  ','lwiis then ten yoars old. On that  day I had been sent by my mother on  an errand to a shop not far from our  home.

I have purchased the old Farmers'- Exchange building, on the  railway, and am placing in  stock a full line of  Bricks, Lime, Hard Wall  Plaster and Cement  The annual   report read before the  meeting of   the    Northern Okanagan  Farmers' Institute last Saturday hy  President Little,   showed a most encouraging condition in the rapid upbuilding of   that   important iustitu1  tion.    The Institute has been a success from the   start. "  It has accomplished a   great   deal in the interest  of its members in particular aud for  the district in   general.   Through it  the farmers are reaching a better understanding of their requirements, and  this had to come . before tliere could  be anything   accomplished   to   bring  about    better   conditions.   Lt is, apparent that the farmers are awake to  the fact that they have work to do.  The old policy of   trusting to Providence and the Provincial Government  to    bring   about   a   better   state of  affairs,  is    not   now followed.   They  apparently   reali2e    that   even   kind  Providence .cannot bring a thoroughbred calf out of scrub stock,  or find  a market for produce that >s not in  the field.'  They seem to realize, too,  that if they are to succeed they must  adopt   measures   that make for success, and not dream about them.  To Mr. Little   and   Mr. Handcock,  who as president and secretary, have  editorialisms .generally. He states  in the last issue of the Armstrong  Advertiser that he is done with . new-  paper work, and has sold that paper  to Messrs. Chambers & Gary. This  deal has been pending some time. It  is fortunate that it has been consum-  ated. We are glad to see Mr. Poison  free to devote his time to his other  interests, and also to welcome "Dad"  Chambers and his partner in taking up  the work as propreitors. They are  in a position to give Armstrong a  good local paper, both of them being  practical printers an'd industrious  as well, and, having withstood the  vicissitudes of the poetic age, and  being "on the spot" through it all,  they know what the field needs, and  will do their part to fill the long-felt  want.

It was generally believed,  also, that a better selection of Aldermen  could not be made than those slated  prior to Mayor Ruttan's leaving for  the East. - They were nominated the  first day on which nominations were  received and are: Messrs. S. Teece,  Dr. H. W. Keith, H. E. Blanchard,  R. E. Peel, and P. H. Barnes. With  these men standing, it was believed  a poll would not be necessary, and  that all would be elected by acclamation with the Mayor. But Jas. F.

The New Year is recognized as a  good time to break of! bad habits,'  though why it should be any better  than any other time we do not know.  However, so long as there is the  ending of the Old Year and the beginning of the New, there will be the  breaking up of old habits and the  forming of new. It is a popular  custom. It dates back a long time,  and so long as man is a creature of  habits the custom will orobably remain. It is a part of the plan in  the working out of which we evolve  step by step into a higher Being.  Sometimes a newspaper man turns  over a new leaf on January 1st.

' A London paper has the following  article about Canada in connection  with the coming to Canada of the Duke  cf Connaught:���������������������������  The Duke of Connaught is going to  reign as Viceroy at Ottawa. Is this a  sign that something even more important and far-reaching will happen  in the near future?   ~  Is it possible that in the future our  monarchs, -instead of living at St.  James's and , Windsor, and- opening  Parliaments ' at Westminster, may  reign in far-away Canada, and visit  our shores at rare intervals?  Such a" prospect is not, perhaps, flattering to our self-esteem. We have become so used to the notion that our  "tight little island" is the hub, if not  of the universe, at least of the greatest Empire in the world, that we cannot easily ��������������������������� conceive that "it may not  remain so for ever. But hard facts  show that it is quite likely.  It has always been the rule that the  Beat of government of a world-Empire  should be settled in its most powerful  and populous and richest province.  Hitherto this description has applied  to England, and our sovereigns have-  reigned on the banks of the* Thames  as a matter of course. But it" cannot  always be so.  " Canada and Australia are the, countries of the future, Canada especially.  At present their populations are comparatively small. But the population  of Canada' is growing by leaps and  bounds. In time there will be more  millions in Canada than-in the .United  Kingdom���������������������������possibly than in the United  States.  When that time comes, Canada will  not only-have the largest population'of  any. part of the.Empire, but-will.'be by  far the richest part, and will probably  have the" largest army and the most  powerful navy, too. Then Canada'will  have the_right to-claim-'first place.in  the. Empire.7 Ancl then she will either  want to be independent or" she will  want bur kings. '- '      ���������������������������  . After-all, if .our sovereigns do emigrate,, it will. not make such la tremendous difference as it would' have  done a hundred or even fifty, years  ago. Iii these days of wireless telegraphy and liners which rush across  the Atlantic in'six days, a king reigning in'Ottawa would be pretty well as  near. London as he-would have b?en  at Balmoral a hundred years ago,, and  there would be nothing to" prevent  ministers from taking flying trips to  attend cabinet councils- in -Canada-  v/hen urgent need arose.  And if our kings do leave us eventually, they will only be following the  example of all the rulers of big Empires of the.past. Rome was not the'  capital of the Roman Empire for centuries, before that Empire fell.-  Constantine the Great found that a  capital in Italy was too far away from  'the heart of his.dominions, and built  a brand new capital at Constantinople.  So also did Peter the Great in the case  M Russia. For hundreds of years the  _Tsars__r_eigned in Moscow, but at last  Peter went offTTakiiig'tHFgoVefnmenr  and the court with him, to the new,  vast city he had founded on territory  conquered from Sweden and named  lafter himself���������������������������St. Petersburg.  It is possible, of course, that if Canada eventually becomes the home of  our monarchs Australia and India  might be jealous and object. Perhaps  they would be pacified by the offer of  a Royal yiceroy apiece. Or they  .might- become so -far- ihdependent-as  ,to have kings of their own, these kings  owning the sway of the superior monarch at Ottawa, as the potentates of  the German Empire own the overlord-  ehip of the-Kaiser.  There is an outside chance that one  of King George V.'s grandsons may  'reign in Melbourne, another in Delhi,  |md a third In Cape Town.

The Rocking Chair  *������������������������������������������������������:  V Years' Dyspepsia Cured  CAN,  la  ADA   Bread   Company,   Limited,  with   its   plants   in  '"In tho Tremonf Theatre in Boston,  one gloomy Tuesday morning, a composer.' playwright and actor was giving  , his annual try-out i'or amateurs. The  gentleman in question invariably occupies an inconspicuous chair in a  shadow, and to make his criticism less  brutal to the nervous novice, gives his  opinion to his stage manager by a remark which will include some city. The  geographical proximity of this eity to  New Vork indicates his conception of  the' nearness to perfection of the aspirant,.  The mention of Brooklyn or even  Albany means an engagement.  An overdressed girl with a large wad  of.chewing gum in her mouth had just  made an especially atrocious attempt  at singing.   -  "'Hawaii,'-' shouted out the .actor,  disgusted.  Not recognizing the actor the girl  smiled in his direction blandly, shifted  ber giun  and .answered  shrilly:   "Pine,  rger cities of Canada, will bo of enormous benefit  to.' consumers���������������������������-Bread will be manufactured in the  most scientific manner vindor ideal sanitary conditions." This  was the heading of an article.in a daily paper last week  dealing, with tbe  big bread  merger.  The subject of bread is the most important, one to the  whole human race.-'consequently every individual is deeply  interested iu this new bread'company, which, promises such  improvement in our staple article of food.  It is certainly good news to hoar that so .far as tiie  Canada lit end Co. is concerned the bread will be manufactured under "ideal sanitary conditions.5* But why stop  tho.ro? If manufactured under sanitary conditions, why  not   delivered   under sanitary  conditions'?  Af the present day Winnipeg is yoars behind tho times,  both in the quality and delivery5 of bread, and while the  cities east and south of us demand wrapped bread, delivered  by dean drivers, we arc still eating our broad seasoned  witL the germ-laden dust of the streets, and flavored with  lim   particular   odors   and other   things,   peculiar   to  human beings and horses. H seems to be an accepted fact  that our Winnipeg bakers cannot make good bread, and as  the public so patiently puis up with the absolute badness  of the bread, the bakers go a step.farther, and deliver it in  about as dirty a manner as they can.  One manager of a large bakery indignantly told me lhat,  hi-- Olivers were clean. I have often watched his drivers,  and if their personal habits come up to that baker's standard of cleanliness J am glad 1 don't eat his bread. 1 have  see/i a driver fjom that same bakery hold the biead between  his knees while he broke two loaves apart. Drivers who  deliver bread to stores, or apartment blocks where they have  many customers, economize labor by carrying as many  loaves as they can  dispose about their bodies, and  one of  for  an d  distribution  ' To  thee, mj  care J'or me;  a   chance to   understand  do  your  bidding,  see  if  the. most secure places to hold a loaf of bread is held tight  under the arm. How many people ever stop to think that  the broad they aie eating may have been held under the  driver's arm  for  five  or  teu  minutes  on  a   hot day?  We have all become so used to see the bread treated  in this way, or worse, that wc don't-realize it. The public  is waking up at last, though, and many people now demand  cieanei methods of bread delivery. This is a matter which  is entirely in the hands of the consumer, and fhe bakers can  he  forced  to  institute clean   methods  of  handling if  every  uiong all' teamsters and drivers:  master, T offer my prayer: Feed, water,  . and when tho day's work is done, provide  me with a shelter and a clean dry bed. Always be kind to  me. Put me sometimes, that l'may serve you the more  gladly and learu to love you. Do not jerk the reins, and do  nof whip me when going up hill. , Never strike, beat or kick  aie when I do not understand what you want; but. give mc  you.    Watch  me, and if l' fail  to  something  is  not  wrong with  my  Harness or my feet.  "Do not overload me, or hitch ine whore wafer will drip  on me. Keep me well shod.

'i have talked to mauy bakers about this subject, aad with  one exception they all admitted that the present method of  delive.y was filthy and the public much to be pitied. The  only one, of those to whom I talked, who was averse to any  improvement was he who claims his drivers aie clean and  need no improvement. He also says that the extra cost of  wrapping the bread would increase the price to such an  extent that, people would not buy it. This, of course, is  ridiculous. It. has not worked out so in other places, and  there is no reason why it should do so here. Oue of his  arguments, is even more ridiculous. He says he makes so  many different kinds of bread and different shaped loaves,  that it would be very expensive having wrappers made of  different sizes and shapes. This was so obviously an excuse  that if needs uo serious consideration. I have made enquiries from manufacturers of waxed paper wrappers and  Jind Lhat in fhe case of.a small'order for waxed wrappers,  there would be some differonco iu cost, on account of the  waste in cutting the sheets of paper to the desired size.  lit it where the order is,large ami constant, as it would be  in the case of a large bakery, turning ont many thousands  of loaves daily, -the cost - of-wrapping loaves of diffeient  sizes and shapes would not be any different from tbe cost'  of wrapping the same number of loaves al) of ono size, for  the paper would be manufactured in sheets' of such sizes'  that there would be no waste in cutting. This was practically his only reason for being opposed to wrapping his  broadband-it is no reason at all, only /an excuse.  The bakers, whose opinions I asked, were practically  agreed that, they could afford to wrap their bread and sell  ii for sixteen loaves for a dollar, where they now give  twenty loaves.- Almost everybody would be willing to pay  that extra twenty cents for the sake of cleanliness. Tn  Minneapolis the bread has been wrapped for years and sold  nt the old price of five cents a loaf.  The bakers claim that hotels and restaurants would not  buy wrapped bread;- they would object to Lhe extra cost,  and to the extra labor required to tear off the wrapper. .No  doubt they object t.o the labor required to open the  paper bags containing I heir groceries: and the labor of peeling potatoes, but they manage to do all those things, and  seem io thrive. Why should the unfortunate people who are  to live at  hotels and  restaurants be fed  ou  germ-  obligod  covered bread.    They have enough dangers to combat with  out that.

There were six men,  each one of whom stretched himself out and drank his (ill  of tho fresh, cool water: but not one of them remembered  tin: horses, who were perhaps more in need of that dri'ik than  tlm men.  The men had ridden to their work, but tbe hot sen had  drawn the load of planks and tlio men, ft avus very evident  that the horses were very thirsty; they stretched out their  iofi������������������ii<.s towards the refreshing wafer and plainly asked to  be given some, but no one heeded them. I noticed that if.  would have been very easy to have given them a drink by  merely letting their heads down, but that would have required an extra, movement on the part of the men; and  the day was hot, and horsos are used to endurance, anyway,  and  are unable to voice thoir woes.  If tho men were unwilling to let fhe horses drink, a  little consideration would have prompted them to at least  move the wagon on its own length, so that the horses might  not have been tantilized by the smell and sight of the  water. There is nothing which increases.' one's thirst like  seeing another person drink.  I know that authorities claim that-a horse should only  be allowed fo drink a certain (and very limited) number of  times a day, but there are just as many and as competent  authorities'who say that a horse would be much hotter if  he were allowed to drink when he is thirsty. When he  drinks as he needs, he does not drink such quantities at a  time, and runs no danger of the ill effects claimed to follow  a  long drink.  Often a drink of water is as good as a rest to either man  or beast, and it seems a little thing fo do for the comfort  of such a useful nnd necessary yervaut as tho horse. The  following, which is called the horse's prayer, ha* been published in  pamphlet form by the American Humane.

A - cenfuiy ago, a snuff- box was an indispensable  society adjunct, as much so as-the "Bridge bag" of, today.  It is-rumored that there-has been "a mild revival of the  snuff habit among the smart, set of England, said fo be incited by the example of tlio late King Edward .All. ,-;-,  . The picturesque costumes, and what has'been called the  "decorative history" associated with the snuff-taking habits  of the last century's world of fashion appeal to the imagination; The snuff box ranks with 'the jewelled fan, the diamond-billed sword, satin breeches and lace .ruffles. With  this threatened revival of snuff,the collectors arc bringing  forth wonderful snuff boxes of';-elegant workmanship and  fabulous price. _      ���������������������������  The, Tudians of'ancient Brazil 'are said, to have been the  inventors of snuff, and the original snuff box was a little  hand-mil] of rosewood; but snuff' boxes, of other countries  were' made of gold, silver, platinum, ebony, ivory, tortoise-  shell, lacquered wood aud /papier-mache.       . .  Queen Charlotte was the "most celebrated royal .snuff  _.������������������r, and she liked a teaspoonful of green tea in her snuff  box. !u 1712 the boxes were set with diamonds or other  jewels or inlaid with-pearl, and many were painted with the  portraits of  famous beauties.  A gentleman in Chicago owns a snuff box, presented by  Louis .XV. to the fascinating Countess du Barry, said to  contain three hundred and twenty-five dollars "worth of  gold. <-.'It is unusually large, and the cover is decorated with  a beautiful painting on ivory.

During these housing periods the feathers become broken, and,  while they are still ol value, they are  less so than feathers plucked in good  condition a.fc the right season.  Apart from this, "fhe general health  of the birds is all that could bo desired,  the rain of mortality boing extremely  low, Occasionally during lho housing  months a bird breaks its Jeg and must  be killed, but this docs not occur frequently.

This grace we might acquire in  time, but as we are far too busy in this age for tho. necessary  deliborat.jvoness  there does not appear to  be any  im-  mediate need for anti-snuff societies.  t    n    *  Fruit Cup.���������������������������Let stoned cherries, orange sections, slices  oi -peeled peaches and bits of prepared pineapple~with their  juices, stand and chill in cold syrup.

Thus in the Medoc bake the surface temperature in .'���������������������������aim  mor is about seventy degrees bul at a depth of a little more  than   four  feet  the  temperature  becomes  one  hundred  and  thirty-three degrees, declining again  to sixty-six degrees at  the bottom.  The surface water is fresh, but the warm water beneath  is intensely, saline, and the explanation of the difference of  temperature is that, since the specific heat of salt, water is  less than that of fresh water, the salt water is more oasily  boated by tho sun, and, having risen to a higher temperature  than that of the overlying fresh water," retains its heat because the fresh wator prevents its escape by radiation. Tt is  suggested that some use might, be found for these uatu'ral  reservoirs, or accumulators, of solar beat.

Mr. Little was listened to attentively, much  interest being shown in the very encouraging features of his report.

Almost   everyone approves of  the scheme, but   we all realize there  are difficulties, with the very limited  funds at our disposal to go into this  successfully.     One   trouble   is,  what  breed shall   it   be,    as almost every  other man you   meet favors a different    breed.   I   myself   would   choose  Ayreshire:    also,   where    shall   it be  kept, who will look after it, and under what   conditions; and it is plain  to us all that we cannot have half a  dozen breeds in half a dozen places to  suit everyone in our large and scattered district.      This    is, however, a *  subject I would   strongly recommend  the .incoming    board   of directors to  give their favorable consideration.-  The present directors have decided  to get a Babcock'- tester,. to be kept  by the secretary, who will for a small  charge make tests for the members.

Dr. Biggs  has made this his main work, and,his  task and equipment for it aro so remarkable that,had he been in America  his fame would have beon nation-wide.  as it is, Turkey and its many races will  not soon forgot him. The Btory of his  achievements is told in the now book  of William Eleroy Curtis, the well-  knowu journalist, whose sudden death  was one of thoMinfortunate occurrences  of the past month. It is called "Around  the Black Sea," aud in it we are informed that:  The. career of the Rev. Dr. Elias  Riggs stands unique in missionary annals.- For sixty-nine years ho labored  in tho Turkish Empire," with, only one  visit to the United States. On that  occasion, he was invited to accept a  profossorship at Yale University, which  ho .promptly declined in order to continue his missionary work. Doctor  Riggs was a genius in languages. He  was ono of thc most learned men of his  time. He was the King of Translators.  He translated the Bible and other books  into all the languages of Turkey and  Bulgaria. He translated many hymns  iuto those languages, and many of his  own verses are still sung in the Christian churches of the east. His entire  life was devoted to the labor of bringing Christian literature within reach of  thc numerous races which composed the  Ottoman Empire, for no foreigner has  over known their complex ..dialects so  well as he.  At one time there was a very stormy  meeting of missionaries at Constantinople. . Good men often differ in opinion and sometimes do not hesitate to  criticize the opinions of others.

Dr. CyruB Hamlin, founder of Robert. College.,at Constantinople, was a  master of colloquial, conversation,  which he picked up by contact with his  fellow men rather than from books, and,  while he was not always correct in his  moods and tenses, he never failed to  make himself understood. He.used to  tell a good story on himself to illustrate the. difference between his own  linguistic accomplishments and those of  Dr. Riggs. He said that a learned Armenian, complimenting him upon the  freedom with whieh he spoke that language, remarked:  "Dr. Riggs, he speaks the Armenian  grammatic; but you    speak   Armenian  short time later, and then several more,  and before they had finished the Gob-  pel of St. Matthew they turned the  whole manuscript over for Dr. Riggs to  review and were finally compelled to  put it through another thorough revision in which they were guided by his  advice.  When he was quite a young man, and  shortly before he entered the field, Dr.  Kiggs waa thrown in with  a party of  Albanians for several weeks while travelling in that province.     Twenty-five  years later at a meeting of the American missionaries" in European Turkey, b  committee was appointed to arrange foi  tho preparation and publication of ai  Albanian grammar.     During the discuf-  sion, Dr. Riggs said nothing, but after  a decision had been reached and a com  mittee had been appointed, he remark  ed  quietly to the chairman   that sev  eral years before, while in Albania, h<-  had taken a few notes concerning tin  language andwould bo glad to put them  into the hands of the committee, who  might find them of some aid in their  work.      The chairman took the manu  scripts and thanked, him.      When th*  committee met and came to examine the  "few notes" of Dr. Riggs, they were  astonished to find that they eomprized  an almost complete grammar of the Al  banian  language, the fullest that had  ever been undertaken and it was the  foundation of the text-book that wa*  shortly afterward published. '"  The value of the services rendered bj  Dr. Riggs to the people of the variout  races which compose vthe Ottoman Em  pire can never be overestimated. H<-  not only gave them translations of the  Bible and other Christian literature, but  furnished them the means of. recording  their spoken languages. By his trant-  lations of the Bible he accomplished for  the Armenians, the Bulgarians, and  other "Turkish races, what the King  James version of the Holy Scripture.1  accomplisued for' the English language  and the English-speaking . people, and  what the translations and dictionary 01  Dr. Hepburn did for Japan.

Whether he was speaking,  writing, or translating, he used each  language "grammatic."  When Dr. Riggs was in tho prime of  his usefulness, a committee, previously  appointed, finished a translation of tho  fNcw Testament iu thc Komanji language, which-is spoken _by. a .barbaric  clan or Kurds in the mountains of nor-  llieru Mesopotamia and tho eastern section of Turkey.

They replied  promptly:  "Dr. Riggs has never been in the  Kurdistan mountains: he knows nothing of tho Komanji language, and,  therefore, we have never thought of consulting him."

He readily consented, and  came into the conference with his  well-worn old copy of the Greek Testament under his arm. As one of the  committee read the Komanji version of  tne Gospel of St. Matthew aloud, Dr.  Riggs followed him in his Greek text,  and, in the middle of the second chapter, asked why they had translated a  certain phrase differently from that  given in "the first chapter.

Yet  the' average bod-maker, who would  laugh to scorn the suggestion that she  could be taught anything about so simple an affair, will calmly tuck all the  bed clothes in together along the sidos  of the bed.  Counterpane, upper and lower sheets,  quilt and blanket!)���������������������������all are thrust in  with one process of the hands. When  tne bed is opened at night as a matter  of course everything is loosened up, and  the lower sheet must either be tucked  back into place or it rumples into folds  at every turn of the sleeper. Tf, instead, it had been drawn perfectly  smooth when the bed was made and  tucked well under the mattress on each  side, as well: as at head and-foot, and  then all the upper bed1 clothes had been  tueked smoothly inside the side boards  of the bed the under sheet would not  be liable to pull out when the upper  covers were turned back, and the pressure of the sleeper's body ou the mattresses would serve to keep it in place.  ln a brass bed, where two thin, mattresses are often used, the lower, sheet  should be tucked around the lower mattress, care being taken that they are  not allowed to catch in the springs.  THE INDIVIDUAL  TOUCH  The girl who is on the watch for the  new touch that will give each dainty  garment a distinct "personality" of  its own has already discovered the attractive quality of the "handkerchief  sailor collar,'" ��������������������������� made in the simplest  possible way from a pretty embroidered  handkerchief, not- too, small, with a  circle cut from the centre for. tho neck.  The cut for the front opening begins  at the middle of one .side of the handkerchief, so that none of the embroidered edge is wasted. A little experimenting with a square of paper an2  scissors will give the correct curv>  from the neck opening down the froat  These collars are especially suited .io  fitiifdi dresby' negligees of either silk,  allover embroidery or plain white lawn,  and they can be finished with a binding of folded lawn and made removable.

To this the soft dimity is slightly  gathered at back and front to form thr-  body of the negligee. Exactly in harmony with the effect, she has finished  the elbow sleeves by taking two .nine  inch squares of cross-barred dimity,  hemming the four edges of each ano  from the centres cutting circles just to  tit the lower sleeve edges. These mate  drooping, four-pointed cuffs, and kw  trimmed with the same delicate Valenciennes that she uses to finish the neck,  slightly fullod on.  l*>  , il  DID NOT HAVE TO  CALUHE DOCTOR  BECAUSE SHE TRIED DODD'S KIDNEY, PILLS FIRST  One box of them cured Mrs. Mary A.

So much variety in quality makes it impossible for those less experienced to judge tho full value that should bo obtained for such grain,  therefore the farmer never stood more in need of the services of the  experienced- and roliablo grain commission man to act for him, in the  looking after and selling of his grain, than he does this season.

The directors, realizing that practically the life of thc Institute depends on the secretary,have  tried to remedy this by allowing him  5 per cent commission on all sales of  powder, seeds, etc. feeling that he  should for the work of this year receive, if possible, not less than $200,  and this, of course, is only possible  by our handling of powder aud other  lines.

In regard to the co-operative  purchase of seeds, etc., the Secretary,  made this practical suggestion:  "In the   purchase of seeds, etc., a  rather difficult problem crops up., It  is this: the wholesalers will not guarantee their quotations over 30 days,  and this hardly gives me time to get  the    notices   out,    collect the money  ; and get the order off.   I cannot help  | thinking it would be a good, plan if a  ifund were,   raised   by a contribution  i of say $2.50 from    each person desir-  : ing to benefit, and placed in the bank  to the credit of   the Institute to be  used for co-operative purchasing. The  occasion may arise whereby if we had  a little   money   we could make up a  carload by   purchasing a little more  than is ordered���������������������������taking, for instance,  the purchase cf chicken feed and seed  grain."  Mr. Handcock concluded his report  by thanking Mr. Hine and others for  their assistance in getting members,  and for the publicity given Institute  work.  Auditor Bennett reported on the  condition of the books and the business of the year, showing the receipts  to be $7,579.17, and expenditures $2,-  819.62, with a cash balance of $85.13  on hand and powder,#_use and caps  to the amount of $4,674,42.  Mr. Little was elected as delegate  to the Central Institute convention,  with Mr. Handcock as alternate. The  following were elected officers: Chas.  W. Little, president; G. C. Salt, vice-  president, and Claude S. Handcock,  secretary-treasurer. Directors: C. S.  Strickland, J. = Emeny, W. Anderson,  W.-Ahier and W. Halle'tt.
