Hall last Saturday afternoon, there  was a fair attendance to hear the re-  porfr=of���������������������������President^Bittle^on-his-re^  turn from the Central Institute meeting at Victoria last week, to which  he was sent as a delegate. Mr. Little's report was full of information  on the various questions coming before the convention, and he'was listened to with ' much interest. A full  text of the report will be published  next week.  Soft weather is seriously interfer.  ing -with--the -bonspiel- this-week-at  Vernon. Two 'rinks^ were entered  from Enderby. One is skipped by  Ed. Dill, and is made up of Joe.  Evans, Jas. Evans and Ernest Evans  while the other is skipped by P. H.  Murphy and has on it, A. Reeves, R.  Johnstone and Geo. R. Sharpe. The  first games were called on Monday.  Up to Wednesday evening, Dill had  played 8 games and lost 2; Murphy  had played an equal number, but was  not so fortunate in winning. Dill is  in the semi-finals in three events���������������������������  the Okanagan Cup, the Henderson  cup and the Grand Challenge cup.  The ice is heavy and the enthusiasm  has been considerably dampened by  the soft weather of the "past few  days. Members of the Murphy rink  returned home last evening.  Never have Enderby theatre-goers  enjoyed such a treat as that given  in the performance of "The Barrier."  in the Opera House on Tuesday evening. The characters were well sustained throughout. There was not a  weak character in the whole play,  and the thrilling climaxes in the  tour acts were given true to life  without being overdrawn. The Opera  House was crowded for the first time  since it was opened to these performances, and never' was an audience better pleased.

These dwarf  honey-collectors aro known to entomologists as Apis florca. Their honeycombs  are no larger than a child's hand aud  the cells arc about the size of a small  pin-head. 'Phis honey is excellent, as  is the wax. Tho little creatures build  the comb on tho branch of a low tree,  and as they have not to provide for  winter tliey work all the year through,  raising  broods like themselves.  Jn tlie same"-land there i.s a species of  giant boos, Apis dorsata, as largo as a  field cricket.

Some time ago a Maori youth, who  seemed to havo a misguided taste for  experimoutiug, throw a long piece of  cable over the electric wires that'run  to Kotorua from the power station at  the Okere Palls.  Thc town was at once plunged in  darkness for two or three hours until  the mischief had been located.

During the centuries that thc  Romans had possession of Britain they  had horses of differeut breeds or varieties that were designated by names  indicating the particular use to which  each .-ariety was assigned. Thc running horses had a name indicating  wha tthey could do. The pacing horses  had a name indicating the character  of their gait, and the same of the  trotting horses.  About 700 yoars after the Romans  left Britain, Eitz Stephen, the monk  of Canterbury, describes the action of  tho pacer just as we would describe  it today, ,and gives him thc place of  honor as the saddle horse of the nobility and gentry, while the trotter was  assigned to their retainers.  In _5;jS, thc yoar that Queen Elizabeth ascended the throne, Mr. Ellin-  derville, one of tho ver}' earliest horse-  writers in the English language, thus  described thc different breeds of :hat  porioii: "Some men have a breed of  groat horses mecte for tho  warr-3 and  TENDER  suffer, .when  be had in twenty-four hours  Putnam's Painless Corn and  ARE  YOUR  CORNS  Why   keep   them���������������������������why  cure can  by  to serve in the field.

At the time of tiie planting of tbe  American colonies no variety of horse  was more common and more generally  useful than the pacer.

[n thc year 1G0S one Thomas Coryate,  an Englishman, walked through'France,  Switzerland, and a part of Germany.  James "J. was then King of England;  Henry I\. was King of Prance; Shakespeare was writing his greatest plays,  aud Bacon was laying down a new system of philosophy.  Upon reaching Italy Coryate noticed  something extremely curious, which he  described at some length in his book  of travels. "The passage, with the orthography modernized, is as follows:  "The Italians ancl also most strangers that are resident in Italy, do always  at their meals use a little fork when  Whether the corn be of old or-new  growth, it must yield to Hollo way's  Corn Cure, the simplest and best cure  offered to the public.       .     .   '    '  forks were generally used in all parts  of "Italy. Ordinary persons had forks  of iron or steel, but in families of  wealth and distinction the forks were  of silver. o  When the fork was introduced into  England it was regarded with great  contempt as a dainty, ncw-i'angled notion, fit only for foreigners, dandies,  and other inferior persons. To use tho  fork was long considered a mark of effeminacy or a ridiculous imitation of  foreign customs. Thus, in a play of  Beaumont and Elctcher, there is a contemptuous allusion to "your fork-carving traveller."  Ben Jonson also, in one of his comedies, ridicules the new Italian custom  of saving napkins by taking up 'meat  with a fork.  Thc fork was slow in making its  way into the remoter parts of the European continent. The Preach innkeepers, much against their will, were  compelled to provide forks for their  guests, because they found that polite  travellers would not fake food in the  good old-fashioned way. For a longtime after thc introduction of forks  landlords did not provide their tables  with knives, since every person was accustomed to carry and use his own  kn i Co. ' ,  THE DESERT LAND-TORTOISE  The camel is not the only annnai that  carries its own water-supply. There is-  a curious creature on the Pacific States  and. the great midland plains which- is  quite as" wonderfully' adapted for desert life as is the camel. This creature  is the "desert land-tortoise."  Jt is a native'of'the arid regions-of  California and Arizona. It- possesses a  membrane attached to "the inner, portion of the shell 'and this membrane is  nearly always" filled"withvwater;4"some-1  .times as much as-a pint. It is thought  that this .water is" derived , from the  giant "barrel cactus "-whereon" the tortoise feeds.

Leonard Bastin)  >  il'.l  h  From time immemorial the, freshness  or otherwise of an egg has been a perplexing problem to thc housewife. Even  at the present time it is probable that  the majoiity of people do not know how  to tell whether an egg is good enough  until   they   have   broken   it.      This   is  strange inasmuch as the method of finding   out   the   condition   of   eggs  is  so  simple that anyone can follow it; moreover,  thc  test  given   is  one  wliich   is  relied upon by the trade and may therefore be taken with confidence.    All that  is necessary  in  order to carry out the  experiment is a dark room in which a  candle has been placed.   Now take an  egg and hold it up between the eye an'd  the light.    A new-laid or very fresh egg  will  show  clearly  an air space  iu   the  larger end  between  the shell  and the  lining membrane.    Jf the egg is really  new-laid this should be very small, for  it tends to increase as an egg is kept.  All the rest of the surface shown should  present a homogeneous and translucent  appearance; if the article is positively-  bad, a number  of  dark spots will be  visible.    Once   the  test  has   been   performed there is no reason why anyone  should" over  be  taken  in  over the egg  question.      There  is  little  doubt  that  milk, especially in towns, is still  subject to the time-worn practice of adulteration with water,    if skilfully done  this  is not very easy to detect if the  mere appearance  of  the liquid  is considered.    There is-one very simple test  which will tell us at once whether the  milk is'of good quality and rich with  a   proper   amount   of   cream.    Take   a  sample of the milk and place it aside  in  a receptacle;  a  small  tube is .good  for the purpose.    Stir the milk well and  then take a thick bright knitting needle  and  plunge this to a depth of  several  inches into the.milk and hold it steadily  slanting downward.    If^the milk .is of  rich quality the fluid will slowly gather  iu a drop at the .end of ..theineedle and  this will remain, for rather a long time,  on the other hand, supposing water has  ���������������������������  been added  the drop will  hardly form  at all, and even if it should it will not  stay but will 'quickly fall.   Poorly fed  cows oil occasion wil lgive a milk whic:i  'is-so lacking in cream that-it-will not  pass 'the  test  under  mention.    It  can-  :not,- therefore, always.be said that the  milk has" been fraudulently watered, although in any- case where- the result of  the"experiment-shows a poor article.it  would bo well to^'change onc'i milkman.  ,7Ljlt-is.idle to.deny that,the're'is a great  */ deal .of '"butter'7 sold"which  if.it  is  not margarine, is an indifferent substitute of doubtful composition.,Of course,  pure margarine, made as it is'f rom" vegetable oils, "is at any time better than  poor  q"uality-butter," although  there  is  of course nothinglike the genuine-article,  on  nutritive  grounds.    Happily  it  is not a difficult matter to distinguish  ' between margarine and all other butter  , substitutes,  and the pure article.    The  so-called  "spoon", test has' been  commonly employed"by, analytical chemists  for a long while, and is very reliable.  A sample "of butter two or three times  the size of "a pea is placed in a large  poon aud heated over an alcohol burner,  or if this is not available,an ordinary  lamp   or   gas  burner  will   do  as  well.  Good fresh butter will tfoil very quickf-  ly, producing a number of small foamy  bubbles^   On the other hand, margarine  and ,most examples, of made-up, butter  will crackle and splutter, making a noise  very similar to that which is caused by  the placing, of a green stick on a hot  fire.    Still another point of distinction  is to be noted if a portion of the sample  be placed in a bottle and this is placed  _Jn_water_warm__enough_to__melt_the but-  tor.    if this is kept warm for half an  hour the fat will cither be cloudy or  entirely clear.   In the former case the  material  is certainly, margarine or at  any rate not pure butter; in the latter  instance,' however,  thc article may be  adjudged to be of. a high standard of  purity   and   freshness.      Some   of   the  cleverly made process-butters which are.  on the market do not always give very  definite results, but a little study .of the  "matter will-onablo-tho-experimenter to  judge the extent of the adulteration of  which he is the victim.  Of the commonly used breakfast beverages there is little doubt that coffee  is the most widely adulterated. Fortunately, again, there arc some simple  tests by means of which anyone may  determine the character of the article  which he buys. When the admixture  of foreign matter is carelessly done au  examination of the grains with a powerful magnifying glass will be sufficient.  Absolutely pure coffee should give an  entirely uniform appearance, but thc  presence of adulterants which may take  the form of ground peas, beans or a host  of other articles is readily observed.  Chicory, which of course may have been  openly employed is recognized by its  dark and gummy grain; this is very  harmful if it is present in large quantities. Further, nearly all the adulterants employed present a shiny appearance, whereas coffee always looks  somewhat dull. A more rapid way of  testing any kind of ground coffee is as  follows: Take a tumbler of water nearly full to the brim and scatter about  half a teaspoonful  of the grains upon  A Foe to Asthma. Give Asthma half  a chance and it gains ground rapidly.  But give it repeated treatments of Dr.  J. D. Kellogg's Asthma Remedy and it  will fall back even faster. There is no  . half way measure about this remedy. It  goes right to work and drives asthma  out. It reaches the inmost breathing  passages and leaves no place for the  trouble to lurk. Have it by you for  ready use.  the surface of the liquid. Pure coffee  contains a large amount of oil and on  this account thc grains will float with  a very few exceptions. Practically all  the adulterants in use will sink to the  bottom of the tumbler, The presence  of chicory in the sample is at ouce  known by the almost instant coloring of  the water a deep brown shade. Jf the  tinting is very intense chicory has been  added to a positively unwholesome extent. Pure coffee grains will not color  cold water, at any rate not until the  passing of a considerable interval. In  these experiments it is interesting to  include a few samples of the so-called  coffee substitutes, many of which will  be shown to contain a large amount of  coffee and this in spite of the assertions  of the manufacturers. .  The only means by which illicit additions to tea can be detected is by an  examination of the dried leaves after  oue has become fully acquainted with  the genuine article. Leaves of many  kinds of plants have been employed in  this connection, of whieh those of the  wild plum are perhaps the most commonly used. Nowadays, however, at the  place of its production tea is so cheap  that it scarcely will pay the manufacturer tc do much in the way of adulteration, oocoa is rather different, however, and there is little doubt that huge  quantities of this substance are sadly  behind what they should be in the way  of quality. Some form or other of  starch is a very favorite adulterant  with certain sections of the trade. This  may be at once detected if about a teaspoonful of he powder is placed in a  cup and boiling water is added. If any  starch is present the liquid shows a  very .marked thickening, a happening  which should not be noticeable to any  extent in the'genuine cocoa essence.  A mueh more harmful adulterant is. the  addition of cocoa shell; unfortunately  the presence''of 'this* is- not "very"'easily  discovered save by the help of a microscope. If thc powder has been carelessly ground it may-impart, a slight  grittiness to the --mixture, though of  cours. the skilful manufacturer will  take great' pains to avoid this.  There pare perhaps no articles of food  which  are more commonly  adulterated  than   jams , and   jellies.-i  It .is   not   an  exaggeration to say that, very little oi  the   material "sold..'of   this   nature   is  simply'"the  fruit named on   the  label  embodied- with   pure   sugar.   ,Most   of  the adulterants, such'aV.those used "for  coloring and'adding to theTbulk of the  jam, are" xairly -harmless, thougtTnone  is-bf course desirable.-  Starch-is avery  common adulterant in jam'though owing  to the-cloudy properties/which it would  give to a" clear jelly it^cannot be'used  with" much "effect   in   this particle.   In  the-ease"of jam it is impossible to detect its presence-without a small test.  Dissolve a teaspoonful' of- jam in  half  a  teacupful of hot water.    Through-a  piece of muslin  strain away any solid  matter  which  is  left:'   Now  add   drop  by  drop  a  solution  of  potassium  permanganate until the.mixture is practically  decolorized.    ' In" some  cases  of  artificially colored jams the decoloriza-  tion may not be very complete, but this  can hardly affect the final stages of the  test.    When "the liquid has quite cooled  clown add a single drop of tincture of  iodine ,and if any starch is present the  solution will turn,a decided blue color.  Even more commonly used than starch  is glucose, and  to  determine  the -presence, of this adulterant a slightly different   test   is   necessary.    Again   the  same quantity of jam or jelly should be  dissolved in warm water; in the former  jns_tancejt^will^be^n_ec_es_sary^to_^s.txai_n_  away  the  insoluble  matter as  before.  Now allow the solution to become quite  cool and then add an equal amount or  possibly a littlo more of strong alcohol.  In   order   that   the   subsequent   stages  may be closely observed it is well to  carry out the experiment in a glass vessel,   Tf the sample is a pure fruit one  there is very little precipitation except  perhaps the smallest amount of proteid  bodies.    On the other hand, should gln-  cosc~have" been employed "in "thenianu-"  facture a cloud of dense whiteness separates from the rest of tho solution, and  finally settles down at the bottom of the  tumbler.      This may bo taken as conclusive evidence that glucose has beon  used as an adulterant.  Jn order to render the appearance of  the pickles more attractive copper, to  a greater or less extent, is frequently  employed in the preparation of pickles.  This may not have been directly added  in every case, for the practice of boiling the pickles in copper jars is quite  sufficient to account for its presence.  Scalding vinegar has a powerful effect  upon copper, a fact that should be noted  by every cook. Even when only present to a small extent this mineral is  highly injurious as of course it is a  rank poison. Pickles of a very bright  green color should ahvays be suspected  and put through the following test:  Mash some of the material with a fork  until it is well crushed, and then place  the material in a stoppered bottle. Add  to this a solution composed of ammonia  and water in equal parts and shake the  whole well. Jf thore should be the  smallest trace' of copper the ammonia  turns a blue color. Copper is often  used to deepdn the green of imported  canned goods such as peas, beans, spinach, etc. In some articles of this nature it has been found to a really  alarming extent. A very interesting  experiment to detect its presence is  one involving the use of hydrochloric  acid, a strong corrosive which of course  must be used with extreme care and  kept away from contact with the skin  or clothes.   Still the test is so curious  that- many people will be interested to  try it. Mash a sample of the vegetables and place a teaspoonful in a teacup; add thirty drops of hydrochloric  acid. Set the cup on the stove in a  saucepan containing boiling water, drop  a bright wire nail into the cup and  keep the whole thing boiling for twenty  minutes. Stir the mixture all the time  with a splinter of wood. At thc end  of the time stated drag out the nail,  when if copper has been used with the  vegetables, the article will be found to  be heavily plated with that metal.  A final word on the subject of canned  goods may not be out of place. These  are used so widely nowadays that the  laws controlling their preparation are  rightly stringent. Still, now and again,  i'or no very clear reason something goes  wrong with a tin of goods. This is  almost always snown by an alteration  in the external appearance of the package. The top or the bottom appears  more or less "blown out" and when  this is the case, even to a small extent,  the contents should be unhesitatingly  condemned. There is always grave risk  attending the consumption of articles  contained in unshapely tins.  MANSLAUGHTER  IN  THE  WOODS  On the first day of the gunning season in New Jersey a party of deer-  hunters were mistaken for a herd of  deer, with the result that two were  killed and another seriously wounded  before'"the error in classification was  detected. They were shot without being seen oy their slayer, the sound they  made in the underbrush being all the  evidence hc Avaited for before sending  a charge.of buckshot in their direction.  On the same day a Pennsylvania hunter made such convincing use of an  artificial call for wild turkeys that he  was himself shot by a fellow turkey-  hunter; and in the same State a Greens-  burg farmer was nearly killed by an  excitable and tmdiscriminating gunner  who thought he was a rabbit. "There  are no deer in 'Ohio,'.' remarks the  Cleveland Plain Dealer, "but our farmers and sportsmen are not infrequent  ly mistaken for--chipmunks or rabbits  or wild geese, so that 'the, gO'>d - old  Buckeye State does,.not fail to add her  quota to the listtof.victims each fall."  On November 1st, with the shooting  season still at its height," nearly half  a'hundred fatalities of. this kind had  been reported to the United States Department of Agriculture. It' appears,  .moreover, from,.statistics published,by  the United States Biological Survey,  that the number of such accidents has  been annually growing larger.% In the  news columns of the-New York World  we find this increase explained as follows: .- 7 - ��������������������������� . - , -^ -  T "The introduction ofJ , high power  rifles some, seasons'-ago was^ followed  by; an increasing'number of casualitics.,.  A' rifle loaded with-a -soft-nose bullet,  which wilLkill-a deer at a.mile and a  half, isn 't exaetly. a safe firearm .to  place in the hands of a man who-shoots  first, and then looks-to'see "what he has  hit. A steel "bullet sent from one of  these guns*.wiir travel two" miles, and  make a clean hole through a six-inch  spruce.- Naturally a\man has little  chance even at that distance. '  , "Automatic rifles and shotguns of  similar design whieh will discharge six  shells in three seconds have added .to  the destructiveness of the hunter.:idiot,  and increased his man-killing ability.  In many States both ,these weapons  are black-listed, and probably it will  not be long before they are taken out  of the market. The great danger in a  gun~of thc automatic type is that after  the first shot is discharged- a second  may be- instantly fired, and then a  third, fourth, fifth," and sixth, ln the  hamls of an excited individual .the  trigger is inadvertently pressed after  game is shot, or the gun is dropped  and picked up by some one who is not  familiar with it."  "There is no way of safeguarding  against=the=fo,ol=who-8hoots=at=a=noise-  or a shadow or a movement in the  bushes," remarks the Boston Transcript. Nevertheless, insists thc Washington Star, the situation demands "a  rigid tightening of precautions against  allowing men to go into thc hunting  field without some assurance that they  will use their weapons with discretion."  And "the Brooklyn Citizen asserts thnt  "it is time that the authorities thought  out some way to put a stop to this  sacrifice-made in-the name-of -sportr"-  To this end thc Biological Survey suggests that the Federal and State game  laws be amended along lines indicated  by the observations of its chief, Dr.  T. S. .'aimer. The records for three  vears, says rhe Doctor, show that practically there arc no men killed as deer  in States wliich prohibit the shooting  of does. Dr. W. T. llornaday is quoted  to the same effect in the New York  Times, where we read:  "The remedy, he says, for this evil,  which is one rapidly growing and already serious, is to prohibit entirely  thc killing of does, to penalize heavily  any hunter who fires before he has  clearly seen the buck's horns, to ban  the use of buckshot, ancl to puni������������������h accidental homicide, thus committed, by  both a five-hundrfd-dollar fine aud imprisonment for a year.  "These are all sensible suggestions,  and nobody fit to carry a gun through  the woods and fields would object to  tho passage and stern enforcement of  laws to make  them effective."  This ball, about thirty-six inches in  diameter, weighs about forty-two hundred pounds and rests upon a large  stone base. For some time the stone  ball has been slowly turning upon its  base, revolving about a horizontal axis  in a direction from north to south.  At first the ball rested in a socket  provided on th-. base. The portion of  the ball that fitted in thc die was not  polished. In 1904 it was observed that  the unpolished spot of the ball had become visible and that the ball had  revolved nearly twenty inches in a  northerly direction from its original  resting-place. The employee who reported this fact to the authorities  found that they flatly refused to credit his statements. Uc was right, however, as was proved by a regular and  systematic inspection that was instituted with reference to the phenomenon. 'It avus soon ascertained that  the ball had a continuous" and regular  movement. . Between July and November of one year the ball moved  five inches.  All mariner of explanations wero immediately offered by all sorts of people  everywhere. Investigation showed that  the,.ball had in uo way been fastened  to its base, the builders evidently expecting that its weight would hold it  in place.  Perhaps the best explanation offered  of the curious behaviour of the ball is  this: First, the ball becomes, in the  sunshine, moro heated than does .the  base and ��������������������������� consequently expands more,  giving rise to^a slight "creeping."  The ensuing-contraction, it is thought,  is probably not sufficient to "take up"  the displacement occasioned by the  heat of the early day. In'the second  place, the circumference of the' sphere  probably lengthens on one side, giving  rise to a pulling between the ball and  the base whereon it rests.

ENDERBY, B.C.  G.  L. WILLIAMS  Dominion and  Provincial Land Surveyor  Bell Block       Enderby, B.C.  We are receipt of a copy of the  report   of    the   Commissioners  upon   the    Sheep   Industry   in  Canada, Great Britain and United  States.  It will   be remembered  that,     in    July   1910,   Messrs.  Dryden and Ritch were appointed  aa a Special  Commission,  to investigate the conditions affecting  sheep raising in. this and  other  countries.  It is believed that the  report in which the Commissioners have embodied the results of  their investigations is by far the  most exhaustive treatise which  has yet appeared in Canada, relative to raising of sheep and the  production of wool. In view of the  indifferent attitude, with respect  to the keeping of sheep,  manifested   by    to  many   Canadain  farmers, this report appears at a  very opportune time.' The Commissioners,    at the end of the  report,   have made a number of  recommendations the-adoption of  which would,   in their opinion,  lead to the encouragement and  development of the whole industry.  Speaking of general conditions  in Canada, the   report says:  "It  must be clearly understood that  Canada is capable of producing  more wool of certain kinds than  a population of eight millions of  people .can consume.' Great Britain    has   32,000,000   sheep   ol  mutton breeds,  and a population  of nearly fifty-million"people, yet  with her home consumption and  her huge export trade in woll en  goods,- she cannot'use up all her  homegrown wool,  . but exports  millions of pounds annually. She  is obliged to use ,up enormous  quantities of wool grown'in other  countries; because these wools are  absolutely   necessary,   although  she cannot grow them herself.  The kind of wool produced in  Canada will be chiefly "that of  mutton sheep. Owing to the rapid  influx of settlers into the prarie  country of the  west,  the sheep  ! range is getting smaller-every  year,   so that the production of  crossbred Merino wool will never  be'large.  A very slight increase  in the number of sheep ' would  produce a surplus of wool.   We  are only using about 21,000,000  pounds of wool annualy,  including every variety grown in hot  countries and in the far East, yet  three and a million sheep would  give us about 28,000 000 pounds ilwlI1 DUU1 0ULU^0 1B Ilut w  aLwod.^he^omp^  as wool growers in other countries. His wool will then be worth  the full market price, either at  home or abroad. He cannot be  sure of getting full market value  until a well organized system of  marketing has been put ' in  operation."  _ Speaking particularly of conditions prevailing in B.C. the report  says:   "The   deficiency fin   the  supply   of lamb   and  mutton to  fill   the  requirements    of local  demand is pointed out in another  chapter  and for many   years to  come the British Columbia sheep  breeder need look no further for  a market.   The  breeder in  this  province is troubled in the range  country    by  the   ever  coming-  settler and experiences some loss  from wild animals, but when his  flock   is    properly    herded    or  his  property  fenced  this   loss  is reduced. The cost  of fencing  is considered too high to permit  of its general use and as in other  parts of the West fencing has not  been generally  adopted.   Sheep  ranchers    complain   of    liberal  allowance and protection afforded  cattle and   horse men  and feel  that somewhat unjust discrimination is made in their case."  Refering to the general market  conditions in Western Canada,  the report adds; From Ontario,  west to the Pacific Coast, there  is a very decided shortage in the  mutton supply, much greater  than in" any other bart of Canada,  and as the population increases  out of all ratio to the production  of meats, this shortage is likely  to become more pronounced "in  the near future." as noted elsewhere, the"' people of this new  country have not been attracted  thither by the opportunities  afforded through the growing  of live stock but rather on  account of the possibilies for  wheat 'growing. ��������������������������� Thus,' "many  thousands of people are added  tOsthe population "of the West  each year who are not producers  of meats but are consumers only.  'So long as this condition prevails  ���������������������������the shortage must increase.  During   the fiscal year   1910-  19Ll, -40,380   live, sheep   were  imported into' Western   Canada  for slaughter;   and in   addition  to this 2,744,900 lbs. of,.dressed  carcases were brought   in from  the United States of- America,  New    Zealand   and   Australia,,  principally . from    the     latter  country. ��������������������������� The dressed mutton  sold by the carcase at from 10c  to 12c per lb.,    although   very  inferior  stuff   brings  a   much  lower price.   If the   quality - is  considered,   this  must  be. recognized as a high price, and if  the home  grown is-given any  preference  what - ever,    there  should be a profit even in competition with what  comes in from  abroad.   Then   too,   the   supply  from such sources is not likely to  Bank of Montreal  , Established 1817  CAPITAL   all, paid   up,    $15,413,000:   REST, .$15,000,000.00  Hon. President, Rt. Hon.

Would anyone say, 'Let  us keep the number of our sheep  under three and a half millions ?'  "Nopcertainly not." Sheep farming  in Canaba must now go ahead  and   become a  great industry,  exporting both mutton and wool  in large quantities, so that it may  bring millions of dollars into the  country     instead    of     frozen  carcases.  "What must we do to get a  better price for our wool ?" was  a question often put to us during  our tour of investigation. When  we tried to explain what  would  be necessary,  the next question  was invariably, "How can we be  sure  of  getting   full    market  value?" We never forgot those  two questions, and they are the  last two on our   minds as we  write the closing chapters of our  report. These two questions are  really answered in almost every  chapter we have   written in connection    with     wool, ���������������������������pratical  information and thorough organization.   The   Canadain   farmer  must be educated in growing and  handling his wool properly, until  he is able to turn it out as well  producing   countries referred to  the same policy has been adopted  to encourage  settlement as we  have noted in Canada. Therefore  it would be natural to expect that  instead of increased competition  from these quarters less may be  looked for in the future.  _ _The.no.ted ..figures above.do not  include importations from Ontario  and  the   Maritime    Provinces,  which would increase  the total  which is brought in from outside  very materially.  The imported stuff from  Australia and the United  States is largely of the merino  class and is not considered by the  epicure to be the choicest sort,  especially after such a long trip  in a frozen state. That brought  in from Ontario is said to be too  heavy and fat, and is sometimes  hard to sell on that account. The  Western farmer therefore has a  very large demand right at his  own door, and in his efforts to  supply it he should aim to produce a better article than the Australia frozen, and avoid getting  it so fat and heavy as that which  comes from tne East.

P.O.  .AND5  CEMENT  ������������������2il3  First Election Held in Yale-Cariboo #  and the> Informalities" in Connection  - There are those in British Columbia who remember,the incident  in connection with���������������������������the first election in Yale-Cariboo constituency,  represented in .the new; federal  parliament by Hon; Martin Burrili  Minister of Agriculture. The incident was truly western in its  informality. When the Pacific  province entered confederation,  Yale-Cariboo covered a territory  much more extensive even than  now.,At present it is one,of the  largest ridings in the Dominion,  but in the early days it stretched  from the Fraser River to the  eastern boundary.of the province  a vast tract unknown except to  the hardy horseman, the pioneer  prospector or the railway, engineer. In some of the interior-valleys,  in the Nicola, the Okanagan and  the Similkameen, those inclined  to the pastoral life had broken  away from the army of argonauts  bound Cariboowards aiM taken  -up.land���������������������������They���������������������������where_almost_the  only settlers in that portion of  the interior of British Columbia.  The route of entry was via Hope,  just below Yale, at that time  head of navigation on the Fraser  River, thence over the mountains  by pack trail.  ��������������������������� At the government office at  Yale, Mr.Bushby was in charge.  The first flush of the Cariboo rush  begun in 1858, had worn off, but  there was still much business  with the miners and traders as  they passed through, mostly  bound north. Life, however, was  not so swirling that an official  lost his head in the giddy round.  Instead there was plenty of time  in which to take things easy.  Important business cropped up  but seldom.  Union with other provinces  had been talked of, and the decision to enter confederation had  received its due share of discussion. The arrival of a miner bound  out with a competence of gold was  a subject to put it in the background. So when the official proclamation of the first election  arrived, Bushly passed it over to  attend to more pressing matters.  Instead of the document being  duly posted where all and sundry  might view, it was shoved into a  pigeon-hole unnoticed.  Bye-and-bye along came R.  B. McMichen, from Victoria.  McMichen was inspector of ^the  government telegraph line into  the Cariboo, purchased by the  government, from the; company  that began construction-on the  great telegraph project:overland  from- New York to Paris via  Behrihg Strait. McMichen .was  anolckfriend of _Bushby's..,_and  the two hobnobbed, discussing  the various incidents which enlivened life on the coast in _the  early seventies.   ..     / '/"  "How does the election look?"  enquired McMichen. Questions  then where not much different  from now. The world goes on,  but history constantly repeat!.  ��������������������������� "Oh, yes, election," JJushby  recollected, and bethinking himself hunted up the" printed poster  he had, received. "Nominations  to-day," he declared,- looking  over his spectacles at tht recent  arrival from the capital, hoping  for a denial.  Both got busy, for it was  realized that no formal notice  ���������������������������had���������������������������b.e_en_ given _pf_the  tvent.  name had been received and he  was declared elected by acclamation. An onerous duty had been  fulfilled.^        .'      ,:'  The nominee's consent was riot  considered. It -was: a -month" or  two before he"learned? of the  honour that he had been literally  thrust upon him; but he accepted."  It was chronicled in a newspapsr  paragraph _at, the time, that, as  Col. Houghton had not received  notice 7 in '* time, Yale Cariboo  would not be represented at that  session of parliament.       "  Like all good stories this has a  sequel.

Finally, Constable George was  awakened from his somnolent  stretch in the sun and sent down  town to round up some of the  residents and acquaint them with  the fact that the day for the preliminary exercise of their new  franchise was at hand. He reappeared with the blackwnith  and an around-the-towner,the  other electors being too busy  watching the semi-weekly steamer arrive to bother about representation in a parliament reached  only via San Francisco. It was  too far away for second consideration. With the officials it was  different. They had a duty to  perform. Mounting on a chair,  Bushby read the proclamation,  and, as returning officer, declared  himself ready to receive nominations.  The two electors discussed the  probables, but could not agree  upon a suitable candidate.  "What about Col. Houghton?"  the around-the-towner suggested.  Col. Houghton looked likely.  He passed through Yale frequently, and was of the kind to  do the province credit at the seat  of the government. Col. Houghton was nominated. At the end  of the prescribed time no other  .NOTICE is hereby given that th*  first sitting of the Annual Court of  Revision of the Municipality of the  City of Enderby for the year 1912,  will be held at the City Hall od  Monday-the.4th_day .of.

While escorting the blacksmith  to the scene of his labour, after  the important nomination had  been officially dealt with, he was  jarred into a statue-like attitude  by a sudden brain evolution.

"e  I a ml  thoLi passing will doubtless go the so  lution to tlio mystery of the so called  "White Indians" of the Northwest.  'I'lieie are but few of the Mandans,  once a most powerfoi tribe of the Ua-  icotab now living, and the mcdii-al observations made by llordlickn and others of the government invc-sIigators  show rhat, thc time of their passing is  not,  far olf.  The Mandans have Upon slowly dying  out for years Almost a century ago  an attack of smallpox swept the nation  that then numbered ',',000 souls. There  were but ,'il left alive when the spotted  ���������������������������scourge passed on and left their lodges.;  l'u   nearly three-quarters  of a   century |  and   traces   of  their  occupation   of  leighboi'hnod  around  the  height   ol'  up   in   Canada   have   been   found.  Certain   traditions   among   rhe   ancient  forest   tribes  nf  Canada   tell   of  a   na-  jtion that lived  !n  log houses partly un-  ; dergrruind,  "The giound house people" they  were, called, nnd this tradition seems  io refer to the Mandan custom nf  throwing up a bank of earth around  their strong lodges in order to make  them stronger, warme. and less liable  to take fin-.  The patient work of many investigators shows that they camo originally  from the desolate lands that lie ."just  to  the  south   of   Labrodor.    There  the  their   increase   has     been     remarkably  talc ends, but such as it is it bears out  small. These "White Indians" seem  .robbed of their vitality, and arc placidly waiting the end of their tribal history with the usual stoicism of the  American   aborigine.  Prom the times when thc first of the  Hudson .Bay Pur' Company's' trappers  stumbled into the Mandan .houses up ia  the Northwest, these Indians have been  something of an enigma to the white  man. There was an aii'' about them  such as none other of thc Indians had.  They were regal looking men, straight,  deep-chested, heavy-shouldered,, and  they' walked with the characteristic  stride of thc white man, Many of  them were blue-eyed, and their skins  were dark, like the skin of a white  man who has lived for a generation or  so in the open.  There are scarcely a hundred of thc  pure-blood   Mandans   now  living   on  a  are  gen-  a   Siouan  race, but -the strangeness of their now  the Mandan myth that their forebears  wore whiteinou who came across thc  waves in a great canoe with wings.  Tho transient niannei of life among  savages has prevented any certain evidence of their earlier history from  preservation.    It. takes but a few years  L. v.  of North America.    Other men in ships  no more sea worthy than  his own man-  I aged to reach    them    over    the    same  stormy seas.     In case they had '������������������������������������������������������touched upon' the shores of Labrador,    it  is  more   than   probable'   that    they  could  not  have  won  their  way    back  across  tiie  Atlantic,  oven   if  Ihey  had  wished  tn dn mi.    What   would have been  more  | natural  than   I'or thom  to havo adopted  | tiie dress,  the habits and some  of  the  I idiomatic   speech   of     Ihe    neighboring  : tribes, and to have    drifted southward  toward   fhe  warmer and   more  pleasant,  country thai, lay about the great lakes?  The   houses   that   the   Mandans   once,  built and many of the games they still  play are. unlike anything in Indian life,  football, so like that of ancient Welsh  folk   that  the   resemblance   is startling,  is   still   one   of   their   favorite     sports.  The native Welsh aro themselves great  lovers of the game, but their devotion  io  it   i.s  uo greater    thau  that of    the  ancient  Mandans ,when   the    tribe was  one  of   the     most   powerful   aud   most  feared  ia the Northwest.  The tradition of Prince Malloci and  his followers dates back to about the  eighth or ninth 'century of the Christian era. It was at least a couple of  centuries before any of thc recorded  voyages of exploration made by the  Norsemen. Tho Welsh themselves had  but little culture at that time. The  mission?   established   in   the   Irish   Sea  openings were daubed with clay.      The  ���������������������������interior   of   these   huts     was    spacious  when compared  to  most Tuilian lodges,  and   there   was  an   air   of  permanency j  about  them.    Prom , the  very  first  vis-1  equally mad followers gained the shores pits    the    Mandans  became  instinetiv  friends of the white-men. Ruthless as  they were in their 'wars''1 and. "forays  against the neighboring savages, thev  have never been, in conflict with the  United States. Many of the survivors  of the scourge.that swept their lodges  have at times been jniftbc scout service  of the  United  States,  Thc "White Indians" have unfortu  natcly no record of their earlier wan  derings through the Northern wilds of  America. All is hazy and confused in  their now almost forgotten tribal accounts. It is evident that much, oven  of the tribal tradition, has been lost  and garbled during their slow progress  across a pari, of the continent. A few  of the members of the tribe have confused students by vehemently asserting  that the Mandans came into the Da-  kola country from the West, and that  it was the sea of tho setting aud not  the risi-ng sun over which their ancestors came so many thousands of moons  ago.  The dying out of the Mandans has  revived the old speculations as to who  they wore and from u-.hencc they name.  There i.s nothing to be learned of the  present decadent members of the tribe.  Within the last few years thc old Mandan pride' has been broken down, and  they no longer- sing the songs of their  father's or -hold themselves so sternly  aloof from' the other tribal remnants  that arc Jiving-in their neighborhood.  The traditions that have lived so long  A 'QQOQKCORfti SHEL'LE'R-  Roots out any kind of a corn, hard,  soft or bleeding; cures it, without pain,  acts at night while yon s1go;>���������������������������its name  Extractor,  is  'utnam s  siei  Corn  Western   reservation.'     They  orally   credited  with   being  almost obliterated traditions has always captivated thc mind7 of the student. Their pale skins and occasional  blue eyes have lent much weight to  their story that their ancestors came  across the -great water from thc Mast  in a winged canoe. Like other savages of North America, thoy have kept  no written annals of their tribe, but  fhe tradition of their coining .has been  handed down from one generation to!  another by the wise men of the tribe,     j  One of the old-time river men of St.  Louis was well acquainted with the  Mandan chiefs and .tribesmen of a  generation ago.": .A.

Their pale  skins and blue- eyos aroused his youthful - curiosity on his earlier trips np  the Missouri, when the Mandan tribal  remnants we're living around old Port  Clark. -  ''They are a queer-looking race for  Indians." said Mr. La Marge recently,  "and their tribal customs, while resembling that of other Indians in some,  particulars, were in some things widely  diil'crent. No other Indians had the  same uncompromising standard of  morality. There was nothing that even  approached polygamy in thoir tribal  life. In most of the Northwest tribes  the5marriages between flu; white men  and the Indian maidens were informal  affairs. With the Mandans it was necessary to bo married according to the  white man's ceremonies..

Every tribe near Uiem scemod  to be their natural enemies, but they  preserved their racial identity and  withstood the attacks of hostile bands  until their practical annihilation by the  smallpox. ' The earliest students of  aboriginal life describe them as a tall,  well-set-up race, with broad shoulders,  wide fot'ohoiuls, and noses that lacked  the curved lines of the ordinary Indian.

They  are but-one of the many mysteries that  have worried the ethnologists of the  New World.  ELECTRICITY   ON   STEAM   ROADS  When'electric traction was first introduced, many people had an idea that  ft-woITlcinNipplrrff^  soon appeared, however, that for somo  kinds of traction steam was still superior, and it seemed that the two  might divide fhe field. I3ut the trend  toward-the adoption of electricity instead of steam on trunk roads, under  favorable conditions, is unmistakable.  It is slow but steady, am! each year  finds additional mileage added to its  credit. The New York terminal of  the. Pennsylvania Railroad jt now in  operaliuu -with electric power andp'ids-'  poets are good for trunk-line electrifi-  cution on 'this road in the neai tutnre..  The -uburbiin branches of the Southern  Pacific Railroad tenninaling in Oak  land. '';il..are undergoing electrification.  The electric zones are to bo e.\teiuled  on the JS'ew York, New Haven & Ilait-  ford Railroad. Kloctrificatiou of terminals in Bo*tnn and Chicago i-i slow,  but, *ure. to.conic. These data are from  an editorial, in The Kleetrical Review  and Western Kleclrician, The writer  goes on to say:  "An innovation is about to be made  in t'hc Cnrnlinas by the Piedmont Traction Company, which ha.* decided to  electrify with apparatus operating on  continuous current at, I.">()<) volts. The  length of line involved is 1-10 miles, in  two sections, one in North Carolina and  oue in South Carolina. Another dis-  liuclive feature of this project is the  purchase of power from a hydroelectric  company. . . . By supplying the  power necessary for electrical operation  at the point of consumption, central  stations can relieve fhe railroads of this  new element entering into electrification in those cases where individual  power supply must bo arranged for, and  where large power systems exist more,  dependable and continuous service can  be  supplied.  "In Continental .'Europe' progress is  much more rapid. Tho feasibility and  ���������������������������advantages of electrification having  once been demonstrated, managements  there, \vliether private or governmental,  aro much more keen on making tihe  change than they are in this country.

Hi Hutchison  .ujj.tsi:  There is some doubt in the  public mind as to whether or not  Sir Edward Ciouston's retirement from the general managership of the Bank of Montreal was  wholly 'voluntarily. There are  those who say. that had it not  been for some criticism which  pervaded the "Street" he might  have remained longer at his post.  However that may be, the directors of the Bank did not have to  go outside the staff to find a  successor. Mr. H. -V. Meredith,  the new .General Manager, is an  old employee of the company and  has been for many years a foremost'figure in banking circles.  For some time recently he was a  member of the directorate and  assistant general manager.  Following the death of Sir  George A. .Drummond, President  of the bank, Mr.R. B. Angus was  taken from the directorate to fill  the presidency, and it was at that  time that Mr. Meredith was made  a director to fill Mr. Angus' place  He first entered- the service of  the Bank in 1867. He was one of  a family of eight sons, all of  whom have risen to eminence in  their respective spheres of action.  Among these are Sir, William  Meredith, Chief Justice of  Common Pleas for Ontario;  Honourable R. M. Meredith,  Judge of Appeal for .Ontario and  Chancellor of the WesternUniver-  sity, London; Mr. J. S. Meredith,  formely . manager of the Merchants Bank of Canada; and Mr/  Charles Meredith, financial agent  in/Montreal... -7,-7  The first important position  held by Mr. Meredith was that of  accountant. of . the Montreal  branch, to which he was appointed in 1870. During the same year  he was named assistant inspector,  a position "he held-for ten years,  his duties* extending, over/ the  whole territory" covered -by the  Bank, of-'Montreal, from Halifax  to the, then end "of the track'. oh  the Canadain Pacific" Railway;  his jurisdiction also extending to  acquainted with the officials of  the bank, but appreciated what  the future had in store for the  new Dominion of Canada. He  became manager of the Montreal  branch in 1889, which position  he has held up to the present  time, also holding the title  during the past six years of  assistant general manager.���������������������������The  Canadian Courier.  LOCAL   OPTION   MEET  In a speech before the local  option convention at Vancouver  last week,. Dr. Spencer deprecated the annual changes of policy  as regarding the work, and finally placed his own resignation  before the convention. He was  also of opinion- that the present  Liquor Act needed amendment  to enable it to deal more effectually with "blind pigs."  It was. proposed to adopt the  report, but Rev/ Mr. Sanford  objected, stating this would mean  making the report the policy of  the league; the report was therefore received and filed. Rev." Mr.  Sanford found himself disagreeing with1 the opinions, of other  members of the league'f requently  and at the close of the morning  session resigned from the newly  formed committee on future  policy because he could not bring  himself to see eye to eye with  the others on methods of work;  and did not wish to prove an  obstruction, r ,; '; _ ��������������������������� ���������������������������*   ,  The report of the treasurer,  Mr. W.

"I'll  fro." sez she, iu  a quiet tone,  air" I breathed free; an' as soon as she  opened the door I dragged the two risen  inside.      They were Greasers, the same  as the old woman what had first talked  to  me;  an' I  turned   'em  over to  her  an' took the woman with the soft voice  down to the train by a back street. She  still  wore  a   heavy  veil,  an'   I   never  looked at her���������������������������not right straight���������������������������but  [  could see that she walked.with  her  feet an' held her nead on the top of  her neck; so I was purty certain that  if Dick did return an' try to finish the  weddin'   as   the   star  performer   shed  o-ive us an intcrcstin' exhibition.  S Spicier Kelly was at the station when  I got off the train.   I. turned the woman  over  to  him,  telling him  to bring her  out so as to arrive the evenin' &f the  weddin'. not to talk to her, an' not to  let  Dick  see  her  should  he chance  to  come  back  that  way;  but  to  smuggle  her into the office as soon as preparations for the ceremony got started. .  I  still half looked for Dick, but I thought  I  had   things   blocked   out,  no   matter  what .turned  up, an' I flopped  ou   my  hoss an' rode him  at about his best.  "Everything   around-the    house" was  whirlin'  with  preparation; ��������������������������� but Barbie  was about the palest lookin' bride 'at  ever got  ready  to  toe  the  scratch, I  reckon.      The  Hawthorn   critter    had  stayed  over at his own ranch for the  last week, an' Barbie wouldn't 'a' had  no search-warrant swore out if he had  sent over"word that it looked so good  to him that he had decided to continue  to  remain  there for a million years.  The guests had arrived plenty early,  nn'  to  necks a bit, I reckon. Hawthorn had  his nerve u.-th him, an' wore a low-  necked vest an' a droop-tailed coat. 1  had n������������������y own rig like, this hid away in  (he stallion stable; so il didn't, jar me  none; but seme o' the b-jys had a hard  time ohokin' back their grins. Jt was  the first v/eiklin' 1 had ever seen where  thc groom hadn 't wore a silk hanker-  chief around  his  neck.  They all me( in front o: .Friar Tuck,  who was standin' under a tissha paper  bell   with  about four  miles  o'.. ribbon  tied   to  face  on  it. I couldn't see Barbie's  account o' the veil she was  wearin'; but she held her head high,  an' J knew she was ready to take all  the jumps without balkin'. The  Friar had one o' these voices 'at never  seem to say an idle word, an' the room  got as still" as though it was a trial for  life;'which ain't so mighty far oil' the  mark, that bein' the usual sentence,  air oat our way wo don't count it  game to get pardoned out for a new  trial.  .1 was on pins an' needles durin' the  open in', but Friar Tuck boomed along  until hc arrived at the part whore it  sez: "Jf any man knows just cause  why this here couple" should not be  joined together in holy wedlock Jet  him make his kick right now, or forever after hold his peace." The  room was as still as tho grave, an'  Iliad just taken a full breath, so that  I could make a clean throw, when a  deep voice at the back of the room  sez: "1 think that 1 know a cause. I  don't believe the girl is doin' this of  her own free will."  We all whirled around, air' - there  stood Silver Dick. Dusty he was an'  travel-stained; but as he loomed up,  straight an' tall, he certainly did look  like a man. ��������������������������� His beard was gone, his  face was pale with a sort of unnatural  whiteness, an' hc was  weight  a  little;  but  all  steady with his left forefinger, while  he held his gun above his right shoulder ready J;,or the drop. His face was  white an' his eyes blazed like, live  coals. The' was no time to waste now;  Dick had a card up his sleeve, an' this  was his chance to take the trick, or  he'd spoil my own game. The room  was so still it hurt you to breathe.  Somebody sneezed, an' it sounded like  a boiler explosion.  "Judson," sez Dick, an' he was  smilin' now; but it was tho chillin'  smile J had first seen durin' the card  game, lt wasn't a pleasant smile.  "Judson, 1 did not cheat durin' that  game, an' I never did cheat, although  gainblin' was iny business. You have  become a fanatic on the subject o'  truth; an' I propose to tell you some.  You are a bully; you have bullied this  girl in order to make her consent; and  you are a coward, a miserable coward.  Any man afraid of his own past is a  coward; and your past stands back of  you like a ghost, doggin' your steps  awake, an' hauntin' your dreams 'sleep.  You preach thc truth; but your entire  life is  one blaek���������������������������"  "Stop!" yells Jabez, holdin' nis  hand over his heart, but gettin' the  drop on Dick, although nis face looked  like the face of a man long dead. "Say  another word an' a bullet will drive it  back  through  your  teeth."    "'  "All right," sez Dick, still smilin'  his cruel, "hard smile; "but-you have  only counted up to five, an' you gave  gantcd  the  down in  same  he  put up a great front as he stood with  his hands on his hips, his head thrown  back, an' a grim smile on his face.  Quick as a-flash thc ol' man, who  had half expected this, pulls a gun  out of his pocket- an' drops it on Dick,  while the crowd politely splits apart  to give  'em a fair show.

We'd had "a sort o' light supper al  four o'clock, an' it was intended to  have the weddin' feast after thc performance was fiuish>.d. It was just  eight o'clock when Friar Tuck swung  ofi" his pony an' as many of tho crowd  as could be gathered in thc big dinin  room an' waited for the words to bo  .-aid. Spider Kollcy came an' told me  that he had locked tho woman in the  oflice, an' that she was behavin' herself reasonable, so 1 knew 'at tho finish wasn't, far off. The tables air  chairs had been taken oui, Lhe intention bein' to dance in the store-room  after thc ceremony, an' while the  dancin' was goin' on to set the banquet in the dinin' room.

Never in my life have I seen/such a.  figger of a-man as him, as-'he stood  there alone an' unfriended. His hat  was tilted''back a bit; air' his short  wavey hair rippled across his forehead,  his mustache had been shaved off and  his lips fcomehow reminded me of tho  muzzle of a gun, they was that firm;  while his cyes--man, hc had the greatest eyes in the world. ' Blue steel they  was, but never for a moment free from  some hidden fire. When he smiled they  danced; when, he frswhed they blazed;  but tonight the' was a new darin' in  'em���������������������������a confidence, a purpose, au' a  strength that defied Death himsolf.  He'had'changed a heap since we'd  seen him last. His faee was as smooth  as a woman's, his hands were white,  an' his clothes looked like picture  clothes out of a book. He didn't  speak for some time, an' then .he said:  "Is your gun broke, Mr. Judson. or  do you think it would be only the  square thing to talk things over first?  ] think I. can interest you. J am not  armed; perhaps you would be more  comfortable if you lowered your gun  until vou were ready to shoot."  -' The' was a' sting in his slow, sarcastic tone, an' a scowl came over  Jabez' face; but he lowered his gun  ^ust-=thc=samef==T=didnit=-want=-to-sofU  en toward Dick so I had to keep grit-  tin' mv teeth as I watched him, 'cause  bluffin'' a man like Cast Steel, armed  an' ready, was a stirrin' sight, an'  Dick looked as if ho had thc backin'  of an army.

We we're amusing ourselves, according to the local  custom, with pistol-firing, when toward  the close of the evening an express  messenger arrived from Perigueux and  handed my grandfather an unsigned  missive. It consisted of only four  lines, giving him friendly warning that  i ipthe course of the same night or early  the next morning he was to be arrested. Wc had but one available horse.  My father saddled it, helped his father-  in-law to mount, and, walking by his  side, led the old man to a secret hiding-place six miles away. It was a  bitterly cold night in February, and  thc lanes to be traversed were no better than quagmires. The next morning, as day broke, a' detachment of  sans-culottcs burst in upon us. They  wero armed with pikes; some were  barefooted, others wore sabots. They  ran all over thc house, searched every  room, reviled my grandmother, ate and  drank copiously, and finally retired,  furious at being balked of their prey.  Thus was my grandfather saved from  death, for in those days imprisonment  led  inevitably to the scaffold.  His parents might easily have suffered the same fate. J3ut they were wise,  and soon changed their "religion" to  that of tho people. The boy Pouinies  grow up with the people likewise, and  became intimate with many of their  prominent men. Of Souberbiellc, thc  famed surgeon, hc recounts that:  lie had served on the jury at the  Queen's trial, and had voted for her  execution, lie has often told.mc that,  in his opinion, she deserved her punishment. "And then," he would add,  "you must remember that we were all  mad for liberty at that time. I myself could easily have been a Decius  or a Brutus. Since those days age  has brought reflection, and J no longer  think as I did then. Tf it were all to  happen over again, I should not ccon-  (leiiin her to death. Her faults���������������������������I  might even call them crimes���������������������������had  been fully" expiated by her sufferings.  I was so little hostile to her personally, that when J was admitted to her  cell the day before her trial, and  noticed its damp condition, I" prevailed upon the authorities to remove her  to a less unhealthy locality, though it  might have cost ine my head.to show  her favor."  Souberbiellc  also  said:  "During the trial of Dantoti, who  was a friend of mine,, I dared not meet  his eyes, for 1 was determined to condemn him, because I possessed absolute proof that he was, planning thc  overthrow of the Republic. On the  other, hand, I would have given my  life  to  save Bobespierre, for. whom   I  THE  was' a  A  CHILD'S   MEMORY  OF'  TERROR IN FRANCE.

"And i am a child today," the Doctor once wrote, "whenever I recall that strange, momentous,  never-to-be-forgotten (lame which  spread like the very pest itself." But  Dr. Poumics is dead. He died in thc  regular" course of his duties, and not  at all from any ill-effects of the storm  of blood and fire that devastated Paris.

They-  were devoted to each other, and their  marriage was arranged; but nothing of.  the   kind   alleged   ever    sullied    their  love. " ' '  A friend.of his was witness of thc  execution of , the Queen. Her' story,  which sho was "so good" as to confide  1o fhe Doctor, runs as follows*  "The Queen sat quite alone in a  market-cart, between Sanson' and his  assistant. Her hands were tied behind her back. She wore a white  camisole, and a cap on her head, which  had been tied on crooked. She reached.  the Place de la Revolution by way of  the Rue Royalc, and was driven right  round it to the guillotine, which was  erected on the spot' where the. obelisk-  now stands. She was white as a sheet,  and trembled so that she had-to be  helped out of the cart. She was lifted  rather than assisted on to the scaffold.

"Men met  in tho roads and public places to read  tlie newspapers and publish the news.  Each day brought fresh scenes of violence. The convents wero turned into prisons and filled to overflowing.  Honest folk trembled before the few  blackguards who managed to impose  their-will  on   the  majority.  During our sojourn in Perigueux 1  slept in my grandfather's study.

He  has gone farthest north, farthest  south; he has conquered the Himalayas and penetrated tropical forests,  he has snapped his shutter in thc  tiger's face, and ridden the wind with  Wright. Even at this writing, -we  are told, a man is all but buried iu  the snow and ice in a far northern  parallel, taking pictures of the Arctic  night. And in the jungles of Africa  ami-.Indian, writes William Allen Johnston, in Munsey's Magazine, men arc  hourly risking their lives by the side  of rhe camera. But tho dangers which  the professional "camera fiend" must  run are more often of the mind than  of the body. For example, a few  months ago, while a conference of governors was.going on ?t Louisville, Ky.,  the manager of a. photographic firm  in New York resolved, at the last moment, to send an., expert there for  "photos." Tho expert caught the  next train, travelled over a thousand  miles, and at tbe last moment discovered tint there were no pictures whatever to be had. The governors, with  the secrecy of baseball of business  magnates, were industriously seated bo-  hind locked, almost sealed doors, from  which it was impossible to extract  them. Did they wish tp have their  pictures taken? They did not! Disheartening that to the present day  photographer? asks Mr. Johnston. Ah,  no! He was not in the habit of travelling even a mile for naught, to say  nothing of eleven huudrcd, and, taking  his o������������������vn time, ho engaged a likely  suite of rooms directly opposite the executive chamber. Deliberately, then,-  we read:  Here, in the face of the hotel manager's express orders, and almost in  that factotum's own face, he^arranged  his flash-light lamp on a table, .and  covered it carelessly with his overcoat.  Then he waited.  When.the big doors of the chamber  opposite were swung open, ,he was  standing alertly in the hall.  "This way, gentlemen!-' he announced sonorously.      "This way!"  With scarcely a . questioning glance,  the dignified body, leaderless for a moment, followed the wave of the photographer's hand and filed into the room.  "Flash! Pull'!, it was over in a moment, and while thc sedate executives  looked wouderingly at one another, an  energetic man with a camera slipped  through their ranks" and into the developing room. " -     >   -       ���������������������������  '���������������������������-  It takes but few minutes to secure  a" negative _nowadays. This photo_-_  grapher had one-all finished," and was  hurrying- out with it, before the hotel  manager arrived.to intercept him. 7  " He had yet to get the'names of his  group, however, as a key to; his picture. Some of these he- obtained  from a hotel" clerk, some-from-a few  office loungers, the reft at, a newspaper olficc across the street, Then  ho looked at his watch. Twenty minutes to catch a limited train- to New  York! And he caught :t���������������������������without his  camera, and plates, without his suitcase and overcoat but with ^vhat hc  had come a thousand miles to get.  Twenty-four hours ' later," "the New  York dailies presented half-tone engravings of the'Governors' Conference  ���������������������������made from a single negative.  .In Europe the art of photograph}'  is carried on upon a very grand 'scale,  but when it.comes to getting "beats,"  says Mr. Johnston, the American photographer-has it on him in all sorts  of different ways; and avc read that:  On the occasion of L'rincf. Henry's  visit to America, some years ago, the  Prince Ind'his own official photographer with him; but this young man was  heavily handicapped with the ceremonial usages of the royal suite.- Jn  ta'lriii ^a^ h~o fographflrc^vji^^  to advance, salute, and. ask permission. As a consequence, tho best pictures of Prince Henry, secured r\y the  alert Yankee photographers, show tho  royal photographer in tlie act of asking permission.  On the subject of "beats," the  Russo-Japanese war was. of course,  productive of many, and a young man  named "Jimmy" Hare fully did his  pari., Suys Mr, Johnston:  " "1 if order" to "reach "Laio-Yang" before  tlie Thissinns evacuated that city, Hare  "ran away" from the Japanese army,  and with practically no food supplies,  and no hope of securing thom on route,  he started cheerfully forth on an overland journey of at least four days'  duration, lie could have'stulTcd enough  hardtack and chocolnte into his saddle-bags, but he needed the room for  his films and photographic supplies.  And he reached his objective point as  any photographer is expected to do.  Hare's latest exploit was the photographing of New York's sky-soiapers  from a balloon, a mile above the city.  Ballooning is by no means the most  hazardous form of travel for the mod-  cm photographer; but ballooning along  the sea coast is accounted extremely  dangerous.  This trip nearly ended in a fatality.  The balloon was blown seaward,' ami  nn energetic fight for life began. Every  bit of ballast was thrown out "save  fhe plato-i. winch were wrapped iu r-ib-  ber and covered with a leather bag.  As the big cities of the world build  ��������������������������� ipward toward the heaven and down  under river and rock, the photographer too must journey with them. And  coming to New York we read that:  The man who photographed the top  most beams of the Singer Building,  during its construction, skipped fearlessly about whore even the hardiest  workman feared to tread. He wasn 't  afraid, because, as they say, in photographic parlance, "he had his head  ;n hi.s camera." He was thinking  only of his work, not of himself.  The iron foreman regarded him quizzically as he poised his camera on thc  end of a girder six inches wide and  six hundred feet above the street.  "Hey, you!" he called. "Throw  away that camera and cgo to work.  You're a bridge-worker, you are!"  One prominent photographer, we are  told, scored his first bit of success by  grabbing, a photo of Koosevelt as that  person was receiving the Vice-Presi  dential nomination at Philadelphia. In  this instance:  The photographer forced his way,  with such an assumption of authority  that no one thought to stop him, right  up to the platform, and the photograph shows Roosevelt, with hand upraised; ordering him out.  Jt was this same man, too, who���������������������������so  he claims���������������������������was the subject of Roosevelt's first official order as President  of the "United States. lie was a  stowaway on the funeral train bearing  McKinley's body from- Buffalo to  Washington.' jv After the train was  well started, his presence was discovered by Secretary Cortelyou, who exacted from hini a promise not to attempt the-  taking  of  any photographs  This did not bind him, however,  en i route.  after the train reached Washington;  and as the cars backed slowly into  the station, he slipped down, ran ahead  aud climbed a telegraph pole. As the  funeral cortege of Cabinet ministers,  headed by President Roosevelt, advanced slowly from the train, a flashlight exploded almost in their faces:  -Dazed for the moment, tha procession  stopped, and the new President, pointing in the direction of the flash, or-  dered.-angrily:"  " "Arrest that man!"  "But whon the1- confused police arrived, "that man'' was gone, and nothing remained to mark his presence  save the shreds of a flash-light cartridge hanging-to the pole.  But photographers are human and  sentimental, says Mr. John������������������ton, and hc  gives an illustration or two.     For one:  On the clay following McKinley's  death",.when Roosevelt -was; sworn in at  tho Wilcox mansion in Buffalo, a, daring pliotogiapher secreted himself in  the room where, a bribed, servant'told  him thc- ceremony was to take place.  He arranged his' camera facing .the  table', expecting-that "the 'new President would stand directly opposite him.  Chances favored-him, 'and his heart  photographic triumph of the day.  beat. high'' with   hope   of   scoring  the  The situation .was most dramatic;  but he did not' count upon its human  side. ' - ~ '  As Roosevelt raised his hand and began solemnly: "God being my helper,  T will���������������������������>,' his voice quavered and  broke, and tears rained from his eyes.  The hush that momentarily followed  was broken by thc sound of tense sobbing all over thc room/- and men stood  with bowed heads.  ' That photograph was never taken.  'Hie photographer brushed "the tears  from his own eyes, and drew his camera uencath a black cloth.  . One of the "most remarkable photographs of modern times was that taken  of Mayor Gaynor,, at almost the same  second as the Mayor was shot by an  assassin on hnnrii the Kronprinze.ssin  Cecilie. Mr. Johnston further in-  jornis us:  Lt was md.!e by a photographer from  one of the New York evening newspapers. He had just secured a snapshot of the Mayor, and'was arranging  'his=plalL*s^or=airorlrel,'==:=fir  all intimately with the event were to  be had. Six months later, the ama-  weekly in New York received a print  teur prize department, of an illustrated  which actually showed the explosion of  the bomb thrown at the royal carriage.  If this snap-shot had been offered the  papers in time, it Avould easily have  fetched several hundred dollars.  The leading dailies in this country  employ anywhere from one to a dozen  photographers, and manage to keep  them busily on the jump. But sometimes even a dozen men arc too few,  we read, or, as in this case, their legs  fail to stretch far enough.      So:  tn the scramble for photographs of  the San Francisco disaster, one daily  in New York was moved to "fake"  a picture of the stricken city. An  old photograph of "Ban Francisco was  used, ancl an export was employed to  retouch it with fire, smoke, and crumbling ruins. Thc work was so cleverly  done that it would easily have passed  muster had not thc figures "1903"���������������������������a  date several ycais previous to the  earthquake���������������������������appeared plainly in one  corner of the illustration.  Jt was universally thought at the  time that the ridiculous error was due  to an oversight. As a matter of fact  it was not. The first editions of the  newspaper appeared without the date;  it was etched in on the second plate  by a disaffected employee in the engraving department, as a piece of spite  work.  No risks are too great to run, and  the sum of money spent each year on  feature stories would make Croesus  groan and turn green with feai and  envy.      Just by way of illustration:  A special hoot was chartered by London photographers, at an expense of  twenty-five hundred dollars, to reach  Messina   when   that   citv  was   laid   ir.  ruins. And wheu San Francisco was  visited with a like disaster, the fastest night train from New York���������������������������just  an hour after the news was received���������������������������  carried a dozen photographers.  The eruption of r Mount Pelec was  still in progress when the photographers arrived, and established their base  in the hot cinder-beds; and there have  been instances where daring operators  planted their cameras on the very  brink of belching craters.  .In fact, says Mr. Johnston, by way  of finale:  These knights of the camera travel  on foot, by horse, by balloon, by automobile, by camel caravan.    They dare  fever   in   the  lowlands   and   death   on  mountain    heights.      They    wait    for  weeks in unsheltered camps to watch a  shifting   battle-field   below,    or    they '  take their chances with tho men in tho  ������������������  ranks.    In   the  jungles   of   thc   "big <  game   country"   they   explode    their  flash-lights   in   the   very   lair   of   the  night-prowling beast; and by day they "  rig  their' tripod  in - the  runway  of  a  rhinoceros.  They are the /'men on. the job,"  wherever their "job" may te, and  whatever its difficulties and dangers.  They arc -the real reporters of the  world's  realism.

The delegation of Scotch curlers who came to Canada recently  and are now showing Canadian curlers how they curl in  Scotland,-are not doing any fancy  playing in Canada. To what is  known as "inside curling" and  team work, they are strangers.  , Of them the Toronto Telegram  | says: They look well, they act well  and everyone who meets them  I gives most glowing impressions  | of their goodfellowship, even if a  great wonder arises how so many  total abstainers ever came out  of Scotland. But they have peculiarities as curlers that would  make it utterly impossible for  them to ever win a Canada Life  competition or an Ontario  tankard.  As most of their curling is done  on outside ice, they naturally use  small stones, though most of  them seem to have been sharpened to meet the requirements of  the keen ice in Canada. These  don't take so much borrow as the  big rocks in use in Canada. This  is a distinct advantage to the  visitors, for their skips seem to  be entirely innocent of any idea  as to how much ice to give for  a shot. In fact, many of them  treat the game as if it was bowling. It was grand to see that  splendid type of an old Scotchman  Jas. Tedford, with his bonnet on  the ice where he wanted a stone,  his white hair shimmering in the  electric light, his right hand holding a stub of a broom and his left  extended to indicate the turn.  But when he shouted "Take plenty of ice and draw." you knew  he was more at home on the green  than on the ice.  But he has a great eye, the  same veteran Tedfard. He made  one grand running shot last night  when he cut out the shot and  counted three on'Tom Brunton���������������������������  and perhaps the Scots in the gallery dien't go wild.  - And they're an interesting lot  to look over are these Scots. One  man burled in his shirt sleeves  and had a red flannel cover to protect his broom from the rigors of  the Canadian climate. That's  the true Scottish spirit. He fears  for nothing so far as he himself  is concerned, but gives the best  protection to what has cost him  "siller."  Another man, I think his name  is Andrew Brown, carriesa"wee  bit besom"���������������������������you've seen the kind  in pictures of old Scottish curling  games. This one looks like a  wisp of straw tied to it. When  he sweeps he resembles a hen  scratching. And when he goes to  clear off his stone to play and  lifts the granite high in the air  and-tickles its bottom with his  besom, he is so unconsciously  funny that if he weren't a visitor  and a guest you would laugh.
