Road Foreman Baxter did an excellent piece of road building on the  short piece fnom the Mabel Lake road  to the 'bridge site, and as soon as  work can be commenced in the spring  it is believed the Government will  set him to work on the road from the  bridge into Trinity Valley.  and District  to Enderby Readers  Some specially attractive show  cards advertising the "Spinsters Return" arc on exhibition, from the  brush of Mr. and Mrs. Marris.

Shuman,- in the. Chicago  Record-Herald, ' says: "It is a real  story; it 'reads true' from start 'to  finish, and it is original and absorbing throughout. The tale grips like  a vise and charms like a pleasing romance." The story "Happy Hawkins," finishing in this issue.has given  utmost satisfaction, if we are to  judge by the favorable comment of  our readers, but we believe the new  story will be of even more interest.  Thc opening chapters will appear in  the next issue.  JHWO^CURS^EOR^ENDERBYL  The bonspiel at Vernon last week  was finished in water. The last few  days the. ice softened until it was impossible for most of the players to  get their stones ������������������over the "hog" if  they did not "turn" them and start  them ofl with a "wabble."

Financially the affair  turned out well, something over $135  being taken in, and from a point of  enjoyment by those participating, it  could not have been a greater success. The costuming was very clever  ancl many characters assumed by the  maskers were deserving of prizes.  7,The hall decorations were .most appropriate for _the occasion, and' added much to the charm of the ball  room when the dancers were on the  floor.

I gave him a little push that sent  him to thc floor, au' then I picked up  my gun. Jim rose to his feet; but the  starch was purty well taken out of him,  an' of course this touched her heart,  sho bein' a woman. "Arc you hurt,  .Dick-?" she sez sympathetic  " Yes.

The' 's one kind of nature which I  nover yet was able to figure out, an'  that's tne nature that can rub it in on  a fallen foe.  Poor old Jabez, I'd judged him an'  I'd judged hini harsh; but when I saw  him'go fo pieces there on the padded  bench I just seemed to go to pieces  with him. When' I saw the strength  leave him like the "steam from an engine as the flood reaches its fire-box;  when I saw the hands that  thev-was strong enough t-0 shape  future danglin' between his crooked  knees, an-' the eyes that had never before asked mercy lookin'.up glazed an'  pitiful, why, it'felt to me as if I was  just tryin'-'to send the strength out of  my own body into his. Poor ol' Jabez,  ho was cast steel to the finish, no spring,  just simply rigid an' stiff, till at last he  broke.  But runnin' the universe is no job for  a human;' overy man would choose to  look his best when he's to meet thc  one woman; but if Jabez had still been  standin' like a rock an' lookiu' out at  the world through eagle-eyes, the woman at the door wouldn't never have  spoke to him.

It was from him that .Jim  had picked up most of his idees about  business an' gamblin'.' When Whitman  himself had died lie had turiud Barbie 's mother over to Jim.  Sho was livin' on a ranch in northern  Colorado at this time, on account of her  health. Wh. n Jim got cleaned out by  the cattle crowd, an' opened his joint  in Laramie, he brought her over to  keep house au' be company for him. lie  portended to be the son of a wild undo  she'd had, an' he fixed up a believable  tale to go with it. All the while he'd  been at the Diamond Dot he had supposed that she was Whitman's sister���������������������������  she went by her maiden name of Miss  Garrison, an' she had never told him  her full story, simply hintin' enough at  times to let him know that she had gone  through the mill.  He had never pieced things together  until 1 had sent him my letter, an' then  ho guessed how it was, an' puttin' what  I told him onto what she au' Whitman  had told him, he saw it all. He didn't  know what had made her leave Judson,  or rather Jordan; but he said he was  positive it was his fault, as she was  some the finest woman he had ever-met,  oxceptin' of course her own daughter.  We talked it all over tliere in the  starlight, until ol' Melisse came an'  called us in. I didn't want to go; I  was tryin' to cut myself out of the  game entirely an' forget that 1 even  existed; for the' was a cry in my heart  that wouldn't, hush, an' I wanted to  be alone; but when Jim insisted 1 braced up an' went in.  01' Jabez looked a heap better, but  still shaky. His wife had a tender half  sad smile ou her face, while Barbie  was radiant with the joy she had waited for so long: she had kept her father,  she nad found her mother, an' she was  about to meet���������������������������her lover. I saw tho  Siouz Injuns doin' the danee once,  where they tie thongs through their  breast muscles an' circle around a pole.

Barbie was holdin' his other hand,  an' the ol' man looked first from one  to the other while big tears gathered in  his open eyes an' rolled slowly down his  checks, f tell you it was a touchy  sight, an' I was sweatin' like a fish  when ol' Friar Tuck tip-toed over an'  put one handon my shoulder_ an 'Jthe  other on Aim's, Ifri HSlcrr^Tli^irgclr  along better without us, boys.

She was huddled up on  in Spanish, an' Friar  hand on her head a  we went out into thc  I  can taste, mv first breath  when he came in,  an' Jabez stood  up  an' held out his hand. "Do you want  to marry her?" lie said.    ,  - "That's the only wish I.have," sez  Jim. ...    . - .  "Then she's 'yours, an' I thank God  she's got a true man," sez Jabez, put-  tin' Barbie's hand into Jim's. I turned  my face away.  The first thing I knew I felt a hand  on my shoulder an' auother hand .takin'  hold of mine. I turned an'., looked  down into Barbie's face, but I couldn't  bear the light in her eyes. 1 turned my  face away again���������������������������an' my lips were  tremblin',  thc  blasted traitors.  But she turned me around until my  eyes looked down into hers, an' they  were swimmin' in tears. Her little soft  hand clasped niy big rough one, tight  an' warm, an' her voice was husky as  she whispered, "You���������������������������you won't care  much, will you, Happy?"  "No, Bi.rbie," I sez between my set  teeth, "not much"; an' by God, I  smiled.  "An' Happy," she went on, "my  home will alius bo your hi me, an' anything that is mine is yours; but my  heart ain't mine, ol' pal; an' so���������������������������an' so  we can't help it."  ridin' slowly toward the stable.  They was ririin * close together an' look-  in' into each other's eyes, an' I'm glad  t.o say that even that soon 1 fe't" nothin' but joy in the sight. A little  farther on I spied Jabez an' his wife  standin' on a knoll, lookin' at Un sunshine, an' before 1. reached the house I  saw two others swingin' up the trail  on a lope. In a minute I made oat Bill  Hanimersly an' Jessamie. For just one  second I did feel a little bit out o' the  world; but by the time they rode np I  was able to welcome  'em with a joke.  "We lost our way," sez Bill: "Is it  too late?" '       * ,  "It's never too late," sez I. "But  I'm right down sorry that you didu't  arrive last evenin'. Wc had about as  stirrin' a weddin' here as ever you  se.."  "Who was it that Barbie married?"  asked Jessamie.  Just    then    Jim    an'    Barbie    came  around thc corner o' the house,  an' T  "Mr. an' Mrs. Bill Hanimersly, al-  me to make you introduced to the  ' Clarenden an' his bride."  was totally devoid  of remarks  deceive  a  track   of  change  an  while, you know 'at they're tendin' to  their duties just tfie same; an' somehow  it kind o' holds man to the trail when  the trail is gettin' rougher than he  thinks he can stand.  I've got a-neap o' friends, men an'  women of all kinds; an' when they  come to mo ragiii' an' bitter, I just  take 'em out an' show 'em the stars;  tell 'en.i the ones who are about to go  on a long journey, but who will come  back again when they're'duo, an' not  a minute late. The' 's something about  the stars 'at alius seems to take the  wickedness out of a human. 1 've had  'em come to me���������������������������men an' women both  ���������������������������with murder in their hearts; but after we've visited a while with the stars  they either sigh or sob���������������������������but they alius  go away clean an' rested.  It's a funny notion; but  I' feel like as if I 'd like to  myself; away up above the  selfishness of the world, an'  bring  peace  an  content  to  sometimes  be a star  worry an'  liulpin' to  those  who  It's a funny notion���������������������������  feller  what's folJcrcd  sez:  low  Earl o  They  for some time. Jim was the first to  speak, an' he seemed a trifle put out.  "What do you mean by such nonsense,  Happy?" sez he. -Then they all looked  at him on account of him usin' the tone  he had.  I turned to Barbie an' sez easily: "I  was tellin' Bill down at Frisco about  a month ago that 1 rather doubted if  Jim here would take the job; but if so  be that he wants it, it's open for him.  If not, that Hawthorn thing has thc  next chance."  I stepped back a few paces after this  an' let 'ein talk it out. Jim was" the  most flabbergasted of any, Barbie looked a little bit frightened; but Jessamie  sez: "If Happy Hawkins sez 'at you're  the Earl cf Clarenden, why you might  as well give up. He has "inside information on every given subject, an'  things don't never happen until he's  had his finger in it somewhere." Jessamie alius was a good feller  look up to me.  especially  for a  the trail I have.  Me an' the preachers lock horns party often; but they's all right, most of  'em, when you treat..'cm like humans  an' make 'em play fair. One of 'em  happened out here on a visit, to sort o'  rest up, an he called me some kind of  a Persian name an' read me a little  book called The Other "Wise "Man.

It'sometimes happens that. way.  Well, anyhow, when she had left him  fho had gone to the southern part of  California, where she'd got a job teach-  in' school, Whitman had located her,  an' when her health gavo out he had  sent her money without let tin' her  know where it came from. Whitman  had follered  minin'  till  his wifo died,  disappoint the crowd; but go on an'  have a weddin'."  She backed away from ine a littlo,  while her face took the color of a rose,  an' her eyes went to the floor; an' then  [ turned to Jabez an' said: "Jabez,  L'vo took a mighty sight oil.' you in my  timo without over puttin' up ono little  squeal; but if you send this gang away  t'-night without a weddin', why, 1 quit  you for good," _       _  ���������������������������  The' was all so wrought, up that 1  was about the  steadiest in  the  room;  'om  lace  un-  an'  iu  about  two  minutes I had  lined up, an'  the crowd  back in  p  an' I'Vinr Tuck in full regimentals  der the tissha paper bell.  Before we could begin, however,  Jabez mounted on a chair an' said in a  new, soft voice: "Friends, in all my  life .1 never told but ono blaek lie. .1  may have spoken falsely through ignorance, or to spare sorrow to my child;  but I never fought through tho temptation but once, an' got whipped by it.  1 told one black lie, an' it was the  blackest one ever told, I reckon. It  brought me my money an' my wife; an'  my load of shame an' sin an' contempt.  It lost me the best friend I ever had,  an' it led to my losin' my wife for most  o.' my journey. AIT my life I've tried  to live down that lie an' to fill every  man I met with a reverence for the  truth, an' that's what makes me so  blame ashamed of the way I've treated  Dick. I ought to have seen quicker'n  anybody else the kind of a fight, he was  a-makin', an' pitched in an' helped him  instead of findin' hini guilty on the  first suspicion, an' tryin' to make his  life .as sour as mine has been. But"���������������������������  here Jabez put his arm about Barbie's  shoulder, an' looked down on her a moment���������������������������"it was all on account o' this  littlo girl."

Anderson will no  longer vouch i'or tho truth of all that  followed, believing his imagination to  bo af fault, but that he was washed  overboard while nearing St. Vincent,  the log of the Melton will show, and  if proof bo needed that somehow, somewhere, this same man Anderson was  again picked up alive���������������������������that, says tho  New York Herald, was abundantly revealed by the uninspired presence of  this old man of tho sea a few ,days  ago. Anderson was doing a half-day's  shore duty at Galveston, and The Herald correspondent was quick to take  advantage of this lucky turn. Anderson " was   loquacious.       Anderson   was  thinkiii'g deeply of the past, and it  needed no encouragement to be off to  a fair start. Yes, said he, with a twist  of  the  long, gray  beard:  It was four o'clock one morning, on  board thc Melton, when, my shift being  relieved, 1  climbed through one of tho  .dingy, dirty hatches to smell the fresh  air and just reminded, myself that here  were stars and sunrises and things that  a sailorniau loves.     They always gave  us codec at tho end of a spell in thc  hold, and I was in the habit of going  on  deck  to  drink  mine.    We  wero  iu  a heavy gale that day, and" the crash  of the waves against the side, tho sting  ot the salt spiay in the face, and the  black,   angry,   scudding   clouds' exhilarated me.  ���������������������������   , Witl7niy cup in ono hand I loaned  over the rail, watching thc water surge  and roll.

The   deck- seomed   almost  like   a  wall,   rising  sheer   from   the  sea.      I  -gloried in it i'or a fraction of a second:  then   the   rail   dipped.      A  mound   of  water,  green   and' eold,  swashed   over  flic side aud deck.    J  was caught and  ?    twjsted  and  wrenched.    I  felt  myself  sweeping away jjfrom  thc vessol. Some  mysterious force dragged me downward  tUl   I   thought   my   lungs   would   burst  --with   the" holding-of" my  breath.    The  , twisting and turning dizzied* me;  thou  as  s'uddonly  1" was" shot" upward   and  thrashed   wildly  about  at  tho  surface'  of the water.    -' ''  Boiling through ' tue seas, a. heavy  - blaek trail dragging low over her stern,  tho.Meltou"'was pounding along under  full speed.'/At times I could see the  propeller race aud churn the water,  which- it- only half clutched. - 1 "knew  the noise itSvas making and the grinding of the machinery, yot 1 foolishly  wasted-breath shouting and yelling at  . the top of my voice, it was tho frenzied, unthinking strougth-wasting of  a madman, and when the first shock  of my catastrophe had passed I began  to collect my thoughts. Thee was little uso to yell. J had stood entirely  alone "on the deck. None would miss  mo for an hour or more, and there was  not the slightest chance of the Captain  'putting back, not for tlic_i lit'e of a  coal-passer lost���������������������������none eould tell how  long���������������������������in that turbulent sea.  Being an old sailor, L carefully followed the course of the vessel aud I  knew that we wore about two hundred  miles from land, lu a calm sea I  would perish before making quarter of  ���������������������������tdnj^TfHn'rntTJf^Bintrif^s^h^  niy chances for rescue, and thc sickening thought of what 1 might endure  in a prolonged struggle for life tempted  mo to give up, to end.it all and save  the anguish of thirst and hunger and  cold and gradual death, ������������������-<v  Vet the tonic of the cold salt-water  stimulated mo and I struck out diligently, somewhat preserving the  warmth of my body by cleaving through  _ tho wnli'i*. Since olnldhood tlie wider  Imd been as home to me. I hud never  reached the limits of 1113' endurance in  swimming, and for what was probably  the ..r.stiiour in the sea I suffered littlo  physical hardship. Tho tossing of tho  waves made it hard to breathe, but  my muscles did not tiro.    .   .    .  When I fell overboard I was clad in  trousers and shoes. Tho shoes wero  not laced and it wa's easy to kick them  off. Tho trousers would have slipped  from mo, too. but with a foolish, lurking thought that they would help preserve my warmth J dreaded to cast  them away. ��������������������������� it was silly and inexcusable, but later it proved my salvation.  ] had hoard of a man adrift clinging  to his 'garments with almost a superstitious idea that he would bo warmer  and hud laughed at him, yet when my  time camo 1 clung stubbornly to the  same belief. Besides, it seemed that  with tho loss of my trousers J would  sever my last connection with mankind  and with the life of the world. Can  you believe that they furnished a feeling of companionship? In some way  which 1 am not psychologist enough to  explain thoy linked me to the life of  men.  All this time the enervating influence  of the wator was firing me, and I be-  to   know   fatigue.    Muscles   that  had been clastic reacted sluggishly and  all but refused to do the work demanded of thom. Tho strange currents of  the sea had drifted mc into warmer  water, and although i no longer endured the intense cold, the comfortable  feeling lu.,eil mc into relaxation and  there was not the same stimulus to  physical effort.  J must have boon in the water two  hours when with horrible suddenness  1 felt a rasping touch against my foot.  Had J suffered a wound, it would not  havo been so bad. At first J thought  1 was losing my mind, then there wriggled against my other foot a live, unimaginable body. 'If L could only have  seen it perhaps the horror' would have  been less. L reasoned that it? must be  a small fish, but the touch chilled my  soul. It gave me a foretaste of the  gruesome scene which would follow  the end of the struggle.  Then there was an 'unmistakable,  vicious nibble at my heel. The frightful scavengers of the sea wcre'not even  to wait i'or my death. The fish or  monster, whatever it was, that had  nibbled at my foot was not a large one,  from.,the feel of the cold, rasping  mouth.' I kicked viciously and frightened it away. 'Then it was that ]  blessed the superstition which had led  me to retain my trousers at the ex-1  pense of a little physical fatigue. In  them Avas a great clasp-knife, largo  enough to be a formidable weapon  against man or-boast. Kicking strong  to keep myself afloat, I managed to  wrench open the ugly blade and waited  for the return of the horror I was sure  would come.   -   1"  With each stroke of arms and legs  1 imagined slimy, wriggly sides sloshing against mc. The terror of suspense was worse by far'than the actual  contact had boon. Then something  thudded, with a live motion, against  my ribs, and ]-would rather have been  bitten. 1 shuddered so that I could  scarcely swim.  -, A great black-brown-body lumbered  to the surface just ahead of me and  I struck out with my knife. At the  same instant.a terrific pain shot up  my left leg and vibrated up my sp'ino.  Something had gripped the flesh just  above the ankle and was pulling' insistently. I doubled in the water and  struck a terrific blow Avith the knife.  The steel sank into something, which  wriggled free of tho blade "and swam  away, leaving..'a. dull, dispersing trail  of red in its wake.       , . ^  Hungrily I   scanned "the "horizon for  tho  smoke   of  a  vessel   or'the" sunlit  white of'a sail.   I shrieked and called  aloud,   and   cursed   the   men   who   had  steamed- away to leave me tliere to die,  to be'eaten alive.    A stab in my side  brought me to my senses.    Some horrid  live thing of thc sea had torn the flesh  under my armpit.   I was too late with  thc knife, and in a second 1 felt another  nibble   at   my   leg.     I   thrashed, and  kicked -wildly, screaming with fear and  pain.     Into something solid the knife  bit, and the contact of it steadied  me  a  little    and  comforted     mc.    f'Whcii  there  was something physical to fight  it Avas not so bad.      When there Avas  a chance to give and take, part of the  horror of the thing Avas dispelled..  Just to the right of 1110 J heard a"  swishing and thrashing. Before I  could turn" to fight there Avas a great  spiny black fin, cleaving the Avatcr in  a white streak. As 1 was in the verv  act of striking out with the knife the  fin disappeared beneath tho surface. Jt  had been cutting in a straight lino for  1110, and thc terror of those ironliko  spikes made me climb and climb, trying  fo-.tlir_ow^ni-y=body=up-info-tlie-airf====-i-   .EYEREHEDU  For Red, Weak, Weary, Watery Eyes W  AND GRANULATED LIDS I  Murine Doesn't Smart���������������������������Soothes Eye Peln  Murine Eye Remedy, Liquid, 25c, 50c, $1.00.

Thc black fin tore  my flesh, and excruciating i.ain doubled  me almost into a knot, 'i believe it  was a shark that wounded mc  Of this much of the story Anderson  remains very sure, and it is only that  which now follows of which he is at  all in doubt. Strangely enough, hc  says:  Dimly beneath tho water, J' saw anothor  great .hulk __dartiiig_���������������������������at. me r  dived to dodge it. The white of the  great fish's belly glistened in'the sun,  and 1 saw my chance. Kicking upward Avith all the force of my legs, 1  drove straight at liim. The'force of  my body shooting toward the surface  mid all thc strength of arm and  shoulder avus behind lho blow 1 dealt,  and the knife sank clear to the hilt in  the soft flesh of lhe monster.  My weapon was, Avrenchod almost  from my hand, but J clung to it desperately. Jt was my one hope of salvation, and r would drown in the effort to extricate it rather than lot it  from my grasp. My life would not  bo worth the price of tho blade if J  lot it go. The fish turned on his back  and careened throng 11 tne Avator at a  terrific rate. I Avas dragged, half  drowned, after it. At times I was almost ''|ear of the water, then again 1  was pulled under from the verv speed  at which wo travelled. r,1wicc the monster dived, and 1 thought that all was  ovor, but ho did not seek deep writer  and rose again Avhen my lungs Avere all  but bursting from the strain.  I must have boen dragged a hundred yards before the knife pulled free,  and, battered and lacerated, I was allowed to rest. Sharp fins and spines  had torn my sides. 1 Avas all but  drowned, and the beating and thrashing of the frantic body of my enemy  left me sore and still'.' I had not regained my breath when/without warn-  ing, there Avas a crash against my side  tha. seemed to loosen every bone in  my bodj*. I thought my'back was  broken, and I believe that blow, nearly  finished inc. I sank at least onco, but  tlie Sc.ng of the salt-water in my nostrils and the choking revived mo, and  1 struggled on, pauting and sobbing for  breath,  I seemed now to bo in the midst of  a school of fish, which scuttled against  ine and bit and nibbled. The pain  of tno water in my wounds maddened  me. 1 Avas frantic and dealt knife-  blows right and left, sometimes striking home and sometimes cleaving nothing but water. The sof% grew red  about me at times, and besides the  fierceness of the struggle it SK-konod  mc.  A great finny thing darted at mc  and turned on its back to bite. I  stabbed it almost in the maw and  shuddered as J realized lhat it was a  shark. The knife wrenched free, but  the shark drove at me again. 1 struck  effectively and wounded him, but onco  more ho returned. Once as I lunged  at him he tore my arm, and 1 was  afraid that ho had disabled it, but the  fight continued. Wo closod Avith each  other, almost like Avrcstlors, the fish  biting and thrashing, J diving and  twisting and slashing Avith tho knife.  At least ten times I struck homo before the fiend waa finished. Then I  gloated as the lifeless body floated  away.  Hours I had certainly been in the  Avater, and I 'could not bring myself  to believe that days had not passed.  The* sea was comparatively quiet, but  I prayed that a storm might blow and  that I might perish quickly���������������������������drown in  the waves fighting against clean, grand'  nature instead of being devoured piecemeal by those fishy monsters.  The wound in my arm pained terribly and thc limb' was stiffened. I  feared poisoning ancl sucked the gash  to disinfect it. Jn a spell of quiet I  realized that the sun Avau beating down  upon tho water with terrific force, and  my head ached with the heat, Avhile -my  body Avas cold and weak from 'long  immersion. The Avater I had "swallowed distressed me and my thirst Avas  torturing.' Add to that utter exhaustion aud intense pain from a multitude  of AA'ounds and gashes, and I Avas -all  but frantic with my plight. Just  AAdion reason began to desert me 1  know not. When the-last real monster wounded me ancl the .chimeras of  my imagination began fo plague me I-  do not know, but tho anguish -of the  nightmare onslaughts of monstrous  dream things Avas quite as real as had  been the actual struggles Avith physical  enemies.   '  It was worse. Before, the bite of  the knife into cold flesh, the rasp of  steel against bono and spine had steadied me and lent the joy of primal  fighting, .but the fever 'sights had no  flesh. No" bono Avas there -Avhen 'the  knife sank deep" into-,the" sides'of some  creature Avhich seemed .attacking" me,  and I. shrieked Avith terror" Avhen .1  struck and my hand and - arm sank  straight-,through -the'^odybf the.thing.  - For ages, it seemed, 1 swam in pursuit of a big green thing Avhich-turned  a serpent head and laughed-af'me, and  from its gills issued smoke and the red  flare of furnaces.

To some I tried to talk,  but they only laughed an d������������������ mocked and  I raged against them and tried to stab  them Avith my knife, but thoy parted in  tAvain where I struck, and then the  paris swimming off joined together  again and mocked me. I looked" to  heaven and the skies, and the fleecy  clouds tantalized mo. 1 buried my  face iu the water and the sights I saw  beneath the surface were iiiilcseribable.  Then J saw land close by, and wondered how J had missed it'for so long.  J Avas very thirsty and tired and  thought 1 must have stayed in swimming too long.

For  grandiloquent phraseology, for  classic diction, for the burning  sentiments of the true Celt, that  message must stand .as a literary  monument to the genius of W.  B. County Master Professor  Odium. None but the redoubtable  Professor could have harnessed  the English language >and made  it express such excoriating  denunciation of the papacy nor  such heart-string-thrumming  sympathy for the last-ditch  Orangemen of Ulster as that  message conveys. -  Had it been uttered upon  Smithfield amid the raging fires  upon whose mounting flames the  souls of martyrs were borne to  the bosom of, Abraham it could  not have been more pregnant  with ardent loyalty, of zeal for  "the cause/" nor of lofty self-  , sacrifice. _ As a confection of  words it is safe to say no such  magnificent effort has ever before been produced in Vancouver/  perhaps in all Canada.  How heartening it must be to  the Ulster   Orangemen to know  -that "we," thirty Orange lodges  in Vancouver, "appreciate your  heroic struggles   which   are of  such vast moment to the British  Empire. We-admire your invincible spirit, honor your   loyalty,  revere your lofty   ideals, glory  in your righteous cause, extend  * to you our sympathy and prayers,  and offer . you   material  aid at  the moment of call."

We' know, too, according to  the Vancouver Orangemen, that  Asquith, - Churchill and Lloyd  George'are under the complete  mastery and domination of their  papist masters who' design to  bring, "not a blessing to South  and West Ireland, but a curse to  Protestant Britain,"  Also the Ulster. Orangemen  are assured that "our ringing  clarion, dominating battle shout  we send across our fair Dominion and over the Atlantic Ocean  to the Orangemen and other mil-  States in behalf of the seventh  congress, visiting the various  provineal capital of the western  provinces, the dominion capital,  Ottawa, the national capital of  the United States, Washington,  D. C, and also New York City  and Montreal.  In Washington, Secretary  Burns will visit personally all  ambassadors, and extend the  official greetings of President  John A. Widtsoe, and the congress to each nation, inviting  them to participate in the seventh  congress by delegates and with  exhibits of dry-farmed products  of their country. President  William Howard Taft, Secretary  of Agriculture James Wilson, and  other federal officials will be invited to attend and several days  will be spent in the Department  of Agriculture, studying the  methods of the department, and  securing a United States exhibit,  if possible.  At New York and Montreal the  general consuls of all nations will  be-acquainted with the^work of  the congress, and their personal  influence will be asked in behalf  of the commercial development  of their countries.  At Ottawa, Mr. Burns will personally extend to His Grace) the  Duke of Connaught, an invitation  on the part of the. Canadian Board  of Control to participate in the  Seventh International Dry-Farming Congress at Lethbridge,  while Mrs. Burns, . secretary of  the International Congress, of  Farm Women, will extend to Her  .Grace the Duchess an invitation  to.honor the women's congress st  with her presence and an address.

At the latter  point connection will be made  with the company's main line.  The distance between Vernon  and Kamloops is about eighty  miles, and it is expected that an  easy grade will be secured, although there will be a short  stretch of heavy work at the  summit.'  It is said that the Canadian  Northern will later extend branch  lines through, the Similkameen  and Okanagan ' districts before  constructing a line across Southern British Columbia to effect  a junction with the proposed  Calgary-Lethbridge branch of  that railway which is to be built  this year7  ���������������������������-.&  itant loyalists now making a  magnificent fight against terrible odds.

And  God help the desecrating, devil-  inspired, doubly-damned renegade traitor who would dare as  much as to think of "hot air"  when the cable is pulsating with  -such ringing -waves -of- heaven-  inspired sentimental loyalty and  God-given patriotism.  And then, oh ye gods! why  was not the gift of humor vouch-  to W. B. County Master Odium  before he penned these pregnant  words when the message says:  "Canada taught the priestly  machine-manipulators a lesson  last September, and, if necessary, will give the hordes of  Jesuits another and a more effective lesson."  Some of us had been under the  impression that Canada in September last was voting on the  question of reciprocity with the  United States, a policy to which  the Dominion Government had  committed itself and for which  it took its life in its hands���������������������������and  got assassinated.���������������������������Bruce, in Saturday Sunset.

LOOKFOR THE  It. is one of the most pathetic stories  in all literature���������������������������the tale of his efforts  to lead an honest and useful life, in  constant fear of detection and denunciation. And the cha:acter of Javert,  the relentless police olliciu! who turned  tip every time poor .lean Valjean got  a fresh "start, is, to my mind, one of  the most despicable pictures ever drawn  by a novelist. Vet the policeman was  only uoing his duty, as tho law laid  it down."  Mr. Pinkerton paused, relit his cigar.  Contemplated the richly browned meerschaum holder affectionately for a moment, then spoke again.  "We were talking the other day  about crooks who turned straight," he  .-aid. "I told yon of some I knew who  had paid the penalty of their crimes  and are now honest, respected men-  good citizens in every sense. These  men hold up their heads among their  fellow men, knowing that the worst  that can befall them is to have their  ;>ast discovered. They may suffer  .-���������������������������liaine, but they are free from the  shadow of the prison as long as they  remain straight. Good citizens���������������������������yos,  'sometimes too good. Most of them  are not inclined to sot themselves up  us superior beings, even when they  ,!o not fear discovery of their identity, but once in a-while there is one  who forgets that he ever was a criminal."  Mr .Pinkerton paused, pulled at' his  cigar and laughed  shortly.  "One of the foremost physicians in  New Vork, a man at the very head  of his profession, is of that kind," he  -.ai'i. "A good many years ago 1 was  called to .1 bank in a small Western  city, A man had come in, demanding  money, and. presenting revolvers, made  the assistant cashier and a girl clerk  hold up their hands while he got away  with all the cash in sight, some $-10,01)0.  There were traces that made mc bc-  ieve it was an inside job, and so iuy  investigations proved. The whole thing  ad been framed up by a young physi-  ���������������������������ian, well liked and respected, and one  ���������������������������>f thc tellers. It turned out later that  'his same physician had been involved  in a similar case in another town and  that ne had been planning this affair  for two or three years.  7'He was convicted, ancl on his re-  ease.came to New York. "He did not  .hahge.-his name, but it is a common  enough name so that it attracted no  tttention when he began his practice  in this city. Now he is-a noted practitioner, whose fees are enormous, and  who is' in great demand among "his  wealthy, patients.  " "But h has not been sufficient for  this man to accumulate wealth and  fame; he has arrogated to himself a  sort of aristocratic superiority that  makes him a self-appointed arbiter of  society morals. lie is it member of  several exclusive.clubs and is very particular as to who is allowed to join  them."      o  Mr. Pinkerton laughed again.  "It makes me laugh every time I  chink of it���������������������������what I am going to tell  you," he-said. "There is a young man,  the son of a highly respected and very  wealthy western "family, whose name  was put up for membership in one of  the most exclusive clubs in town. And  in the way in which these things are  :old," he was informed that he would  better withdraw his name if he didn't  want to  he  blackballed,  for  Dr.  ,  who is on the board of governors, would  ippose his admission.

"Now. you may say that this physi-  i'inn had paid the penalty for his  crime, that he owed no debt to society  and that he had a right to be as ar-  logant and exclusive as lie pleased. 1  grant that, but 1 maintain that he is  iio better citizen than some of these  .lean Valjeans of real life, men who  are honestly trying to live rightly,  with the double fear not only of detection but of re-imprisonment hanging  over them.  "That is an awful terror���������������������������that fear  of being found out and dragged-'back-  to serve out a prison sentence. But  the man who, like dean Valjean, honestly tries under such a handicap to bo  a, good citizen is entitled. I honestly  believe, to more respect than the man  who has paid his debt���������������������������certainly Iiis  task is a harder one, and fewer men  accomplish  it.  "I have in mind one case that interests me ve *y much. I could put my  hands at any time on an escaped criminal who has nearly twenty years yet  fo serve in the Stillwater penitentiary  in Minnesota. Tint I do not intend to  molest him  or reveal his secret unless  he commits another crime���������������������������which he is  not at all  likely to do.  "This fellow was one of the cleverest jewellery thieves I ever knew, and  I 've known a good many.1 He was a  young'man 'of good family, educated,  could dress well andfliked to���������������������������in short,  just the kind of a man to impose on  ah unsuspicious, tradesman. He got a  lot of money througlr his thefts, but  blew it all in as soon as he got it and  had to resort to crime again to get  more.  "I first heard of him a good many  years ago in Sa!n Francisco. That, 1  believe, was tne first place where he  worked, his favorite trick.  "Registering at a San Francisco hotel under the name of a wealthy man  of San Jose, he visited a jewel levy store  am! picked out a fine diamond ring.  After making the selection he said,  rather bashfully, that he was intending  to be married and was buying the ring  for the young wonian, but before deciding to purchase it he would bring  her around to see it. lie asked the  jeweller to lay the ring aside for him,  and as there was nothing suspicious  about his manner or his request, the  ring was put away for later inspection  by thy mythical fiancee.  '"The young crook went to five other  jewellers and did the same thing. Now  he had introduced himself and made  his selection in six places, choosing  rings worth several hundred dollars  apiece. His next move was to go to.  San Jose, which was not his home and  never had been, and write to each  jeweller on the letterhead of the firm  of which he had pretended to ,be a  member. In his letters he said that  he had been unexpectedly called home  on business and asked the jewellers to  keep the rings until he could visit San  Francisco again.  "When enough time had elapsed for  the jewellers to get the letters, but before they had time to answer them���������������������������  for the answers would have gone to  the firm of which the young man pretended to be a member���������������������������he sent each  jeweller a telegram to thc elfect that he  had decided to take the ring and would  call for it the next day. So the jewellers diil not answer the letters.  "Xcxt day the young man visited  each jeweller, gave.him a check, which  was accepted without question, for the  jewellers had been completely deceived  by the letters from the highly rated  firm&in San Jose, and took, up the  rings. 'j.his was on Saturday, and the  forged checks could not get back to  the San Jose bank.before Monday. By  that time the young fellow was hundreds of miles away.  "We were not called in on the case,  bnt-1 learned about it, and J heard of  what he did after that.- He worked  the same game, in Denver, with Colorado Springs' as iiis supposed home  city. Jle worked it in St. Louis, and  a little later, he', worked both Louisville and Cincinnati in one day. ..Finally he got into six��������������������������� jewellers of St.  Paul in one day, and one of them happened to be a member, of the Jewellers'  Protective Association," which retained  us for, protection against thieves. This  jeweller sent for me, and I went up  to see him. The story he told me  was familiar. There was no doubt the  man who had turned the trick was the  one who had worked San Francisco and  the other cities.  " 'Can you catch him?' asked the  jeweller.  " 'There's no doubt of that,' I replied. 'Sooner or later we will pick  him up. But if you want to get him  quickly you'll have to spend some  money, 'it will cost about a thousand  dollars.'  The jeweller demurred, just as many  other good men demur whou they are  called upon to go down into their own  pockets to do.a service for society. If  every man who suffers from the depredations of criminals were willing to  help catch the man who robs him there  wouldn't be so many criminals at large.  Private detective agencies ean-'t work  TorTothiTig,71111 ITew "pOIiWTropSTnrrerrtr  can afford to detail men to follow the  trails of individual criminals except in  the most serious cases. But finally this  St. Paul jeweller came around and  agreed to spend a thousand���������������������������which he  could well afford���������������������������-to catch the ring  thief. I knew then we would have the  man  soon."  "How could you tell that"?"  "Because he'was certain to try the  same - trick-somewlioie -elrC--sii.ee he  had been so successful in getting away  with it before." replied Mr. Pinkerton. "H was certain, too. that he  would try a big city. So the way  to trap him. it seemed to me, was to  put the jewellers in the big cities on  their guard. it was not much trouble  to get a description of him, for so  inanv jewellers had seen him���������������������������to theii  sorrow". And the cheeks by the bank*  gave samples enough of handwriting.  Wc got out circulars containing the  description and specimens of penmanship and sent them broadcast. Not  long afterward one of our men picked  him up in  Boston.  "The young fellow begged and  pleaded for mercy, but he had been at  the game too long to play innocent and  first offender, and all the six St. Paul  jewellers identified him as the man who  had robbed them. He was convicted  on six counts and was given four years  on each���������������������������twenty-four years in the Minnesota penitentiary,  "I got reports from the prison from  time to time. lie was taking his imprisonment easily ami was making  himself a good ' fellow with the warden. He became editor of the prison  paper and wrote some really clevei  things for it.      The reports that came  to me were so good that the mau who  brought them asked ine one day what  I made of the follow's actions. '....',...  " 'He's getting ready to "kiss himself out," 1 said, and I was right, for  not long after, that he slipped away  between two days and vanished.  '' Of course, his photograph, and. description were sent to all the police  departments and detective agencies,  but nobody got a trace of him. 1  hadn't heard or thought of him for  twenty years until a couple of years  ago.  "I was sitting in the lobby of a hotel in Hong Kong, watching the people passing, when a man whose face  seemed familiar came in. 1 studied  him a moment, tlien I placed him. It  was the escaped convict from Stillwater���������������������������the young jewel thief! His  hair was gray, but it was the same man  ���������������������������I was sure of it.  "If I had had any doubt about his  identity it would have been removed  by his actions when he caught sight  of me. He started, turned pale and  hurried away. lie had recognized me  quicker  than  I had  recognized   him.  "in the few minutes that followed  his recognition of me that man went  through all the pangs of terror that  Jean Valjean ever sutrcred. lie could  not stand the suspense long, and soon  he came over to where 1 sat.'  " 'What does this, mean���������������������������what are  you doing here in Hong Kong'?' he  stammered.  " 'What are you doing here?' I asked him, and he told me his story.  "He had lived straight from the  time he escaped from prison. lie had  had a hard time of it, between keeping himself under cover and earning  a "living. He had done newspaper  Work and other things .until he finally  drifted to Hong Kong. When I found  him there he had been for sixteen  years a merchant in that city, had  built up a large and profitable business  and was one of the most highly- respected business men in the city.

He  was a man with a long record as a,  bank burglar and he was serving a  sentence that had many years yet to  "run. I did not know the man, but 1  knew about him, and his escape was  a great newspaper sensation at the  time.  "A few years ago a man called on  me here in my New York office.

WHEAT, BARLEY  Owing to so much unfarorable weather, many farmers ofer Western  " Canada have"gntue"red~at"least"pa"rt~of" their-'crop-totiched-by-frost-or-  otherwise weather damaged. However, through the large shortage m  corn, oats, barlev, fodder, potatoes and regetables, by the unusual heat  and drought of 'last summer in the United States, Eastern Canada and  Western Europe, there is going to be a steady demand at good price?,  for all the grain Western Canada has-raised, no matter what its quality  may be.  So much variety in quality makes it impossible for thoso less experienced to judge the full value that should be obtained for such grain,  therefore the farmer* never stood more in need of the services of the  ��������������������������� experienced and  reliable grain commission man to act for him, in the  looking after and selling of his grain, than he does this season.  Farmers, vou will therefore do well for yourselves not lo accept  street or track prices, but to ship your grain by carload direct to Fort  William or Port Arthur, to be handled by us in a way that will get  for vou all there is in it. We make liberal ad-rances when desired, on  receipt of shipping bills for cars shipped. We never buy your grain on  our own account, but act as your agents in selling it to the best advantage for your account, and we do so on a fixed commission of lc per  bushel. ,   , ,  We have made a specialty of this work for many years, and are  well known orer Western Canada for our experience in the grain trade,  reliability, careful attention to our customers' interests, and promptness  in  making settlements,  We invite farmers who have not yet employed us to WTite to us for  shipping instructions and market information, and in regard to our  standing in the Winnipeg Grain Trade, and our financial position, we  beg to refer you to the Union Bant of Canada, and any of its branches,  also  to the  commercial   agencieB of  Bradstreets and E.

Wm. H. Hutchison  ENDERBY  Following is the report of Mr. C.  W. Little, as delegate to the 14th  Annual Convention of the Central  Farmers' Institute, read before a  meeting of the Northern Okanagan  Institute in Enderby and Mara last  week.  Gentlemen: I think it was in 1898  the first Convention of the Central  Institute was held, with 13 delegates  present. This year there were 65  present, and a new delegate caunot  help being impressed with the importance of these meetings, both to  the farmers and the Government.  Without doubt each year will see an  increase in the number of delegates,  and subjects brought up ior discussion of more importance, and in fact  of vital interest to the farming interest of B. C. Each year sees an  improvement in resolutions sent in,  procedure and discussion, an'd let me  here impress upon you the need for  great consideration, thought and dis_-  cussion of the resolutions submitted.  Be cure that they are worthy of consideration. Better send in-..one or  two really important, well-thought-  out resolutions than a dozen or so  of. such trash as you can pick out of  thc some 120 submitted this year.  These the resolution committee consolidated and boiled down to 40, or  just one-third. Bear this in mind,  and don't'"send your delegate, .whoever he may be, with-anything open  tor ridicule or anything heisjashamed  to father. " Your delegate, pr,obably  a new man, will realize this "when he  finds he is up against not only about  75"farmers, but perhaps the pick of  us���������������������������some , really good speakers and  debaters���������������������������realizing the importance of  the Institute and quick to criticise  and turn down, without sympathy  for the .mover, "anything that is not  strictly within the bounds of what  the. Farmers' Institute Convention -is  intended to" represent. 7, If" we submit  fewer-and "better", resolutions "to the  Government . ,we..shall get far more  and favorable'consideration"'"than ' by  passing a whole bunch of" trash." Of  33' submitted, 18 carried, 6 were", defeated' and 9 withdrawn' this year. -"  I am pleased to report that all of  the six resolutions our Institute sent  in were carried, with very little opposition. Some were incorporated  with resolutions sent in by other Institutes of a similar nature, moved  by them and seconded or supported  by myself.  The resolution endorsing the resolution passed by the Highways Association carried unanimously.  The resolution asking the Government to loan money to farmers at a  low rate lof interest, moved by West  Kootenay, and seconded by myself,  carried unanimously. This resolution, perhaps the most important  before the ,.Convention, was considered of much interest. A deputation' of four, * Summerland, Nelson,'  Shaunigan and Northern Okanagan,  were appointed to wait upon the executive council to lay the matter be.  fore the ministers. Mr. Lucas,member for Yale, introduced us. We  were accorded a very pleasant, cordial and interested hearing, the Premier assuring us the matter would  have the favorable consideration of  vthe Government, and possibly provision would be made during the  present session for the appointment,  of a Commission to enquire thoroughly into the subject.  The resolution setting forth that  "we consider that only persons paying real or personal taxes should be  exempt from-revenue; tax" carried..-  ' A resolution asking the Department-  to have the ' annual report in the  hands, of the Institutes at an earlier  date than in the past, was ��������������������������� withdrawn upon i the explanation of. the'  Superintendent of the Institute - and-  the assurance that this year it will  certainly be out much earlier- than  last" year." y - '. - -- - .- .'  The resolution' -asking the, continuance' of -tobacco experiments - carried  unanimously, . with ��������������������������� assurance from  the - Superintendent t. that- -this".year's  results had - been7'most'encouraging-  moved by Crawford Bay, carried.  Of the other resolutions, perhaps  West Kootenay's resolution to make  possible and practicable ownership by  local telephone companies, was, I  think, the most important, but the  Convention was almost unanimously  in favor of Government ownership,  and on these lines the resolution  passed, but the.

Mills, adventurer and explorer, started out one fine Alardi morning for tli- lop of tfic San. Juan range  of the L'ockics in'search of a little inside information on thc subject of  mountain slides, lie got there all right,  and was safely halt-way down again  when there suddenly appeared on the  upper steeps a terrific outburst as from  au explosion. He knew thou, he says  in "The Spell ot the Rockies" (Houghton, MUVm Go.), that a general slide  had'started. It was like the end of  the world���������������������������that thundering, terrible,  ear-splitting, crashing sound that was  everywhere about liim���������������������������and Mills was  much of the impression that his own  end was near. Nevertheless, hc tells  us:  I whirlerPto escape, pointed my skces  down the slope���������������������������and went. In less  than half a minute a tremendous snow  avalanche one hundred or perhaps two  hundred feet deep and five or six hundred feet long, thundered over the spot  where I had stood. /  There was no chance to dodge, no  time to climb out of the way. The  ouly hope ofoescape lay in out-running  th'c magnificent' monster. Xt came  crashing and thundering after me as  swift as a gale and more all-sweeping  and destructive than an earthquake  tidal wave.  . I made a desperate start. Friction  almost ceases to be a factor with skecs  on a snowy steep, aiid in less than a  hundred yards I was going like tho  wind. For the first quarter of a mile,  to the upper end of the gulch, was  smoqth coasting, and down this I shot,  with the avalanche, comet-tailed with  snow-dust, in close pursuit. A race  for life was on. .  The gulch down wliich I must go began witn a rocky gorge and continued  downward, an enormous U-shapcd depression between high mountain ridges.  Here and there it expanded aud then  contracted, and ��������������������������� it was broken "with  granite crags and .ribs, lt was piled  and bristled with ten thousand fire-  killed trees, To coast'through all these  snow-clad obstructions at break-neck  speed, would be taking the maximum  number of lifc-and-dcatli chances' in  the0 minimum' amount of time. The  woist of it all was that'I had never  been "through , tbe place. * And- bad  "enough, too, -was the fact that the  ridge thrust in from the "left and completely hid the, beginning "of U& gulch.  a As .1 shot across" the lower point .of  the_ ridge,'about to" plunge blindly into  the gorge, 1 thought of the possibility  of bccomiugeiitaiigle.djii the'hedge-like  ���������������������������fhickcts of * dwarfed, gnarled" timber-  line trees." I also realized that I might  dash against a cliff,-or plunge into a  deep canon. Of course .1 might strike  an open way," but certain it was that "I  could not stop,' nor s'e'e the beginning  of the gorge, n'or tell,'what" I should  strike'when I shot over-the ridge.    ���������������������������  T,t was a second of .most intense concern as T"cleared the ridge blindly to  go 7hito what lay below and ..beyond.  It was like leaping into the dark, and  ���������������������������with (the leap, turn ing on the all-revealing light. -As-T cleared tne ridge, there  was just time to pull-myself together  for a * forty-odd-foot - leap ' across ,oue  arm of the liorscshoe-shaped' end of  the gorge. In/al] my wild mountainside coasts on skees, never have I sped  as swiftly as when I _made this mad  flight. As I shot through the. air, I  had a glimpse down into the pointed,'  snow-laden tops of a few tall firtrees  that were firmly rooted among the rocks  in the bottom of tho gorge. Luckily  I cleared the gorge and landed in a  good place; but so narrowly did I miss  the corner of a cliff that my shadow  "c^]litlecl_witint: jy^ "7 "~"  Thcre was no time to bid farewell to  fears when tne slide started, nor to entertain them while running away from  it. Instinct put me to flight; the situation set my wits working at their best,  and, once started, I could neither stop  ior look back; and so thick and fast  did obstructions and dangers rise, before me that only dimly and incidentally did I think of the on-coming  danger-behind. -         lection. Numerous factors prcesnted  themselves which should have done  much to dispel mental procrastination  and develop decision. There were  scores of progressive propositions to  decide within a few seconds; should 1  dodge that tree on the left side and  duck under low limbs just beyond, or  dodge to the right and scrape that  pile of rocks? These, with my speed,  required instant decision and action.  With almost uncontrollable rapidity  I shot out into a small, nearly level  glacier meadow, and had a brief rest  from swift decisions and oncoming dangers. How relieved my weary brain  felt, with nothing to decide about dodging! As though starved for thought  material, I wondered if tliere were willows buried beneath the snow. Sharp  pains in my left hand compelled attention, and showed my left arm drawn  tightly against my breast with fingers  and thumb spread to the fullest, and  all their muscles tens"e.  Tho lower edge of the meadow was  almost blockaded with a dense growth  of fire-killed trees. Fortunately the  easy slope here had so checked my  speed that I was able to dodge safely  through, but the heavy slide .swept  across the meadow after me' with undiminished speed, and came crashing  into the dead trees so close to me that  broken limbs were flung flying past as  1 shot down off a steep moraine less  than one hundred feet ahead.  All the way down I had. hoped to  find a side canon into which I might  dodge. I was going too rapidly to  enter the one I had seen. As I coasted  thc moraine it flashed through my mind  that I had once heard a prospector say  it was only a quarter of a mile from  Aspen Gulch up to the meadows. Aspen  Gulch came in on the- right, as the  noAv slightly widening track seemed to  indicate.   ,  At the bottom of the moraine I was  forced between two trees that stood  close together, and a broken limb of  one pierced my open coat just beneath  the left armhole, arid slit the coat to  the bottom. My 'momentum and the  resistance of the strong material gave  me, sueh a shock that I, was flung off  my balance, and my left' skee smashed  againsfe a tree. Two feet of the heel  was broken off and the remainder split.  E managed to.'avoid falling biit-hadlo  check my speed "with my'staff for fear  of a worse accident. - .   '  '"Battling breakers-with *a broken'oar  or-racing witlra brokeiuskee are struggles'of short duration. ,-The -slide did  "not slowTdowri, "arid so closely-did "it  crowd me that, through , the crashing  of trees as> it struck: them down, J  could hear thc rocks- and splintered  timb rs in its mass' grinding together  and thudding against' obstructions over  wliich it swept.- These sounds, and flying, broken limbs cried to me '/ Faster! " "and 7ns I started" to descend another steep riioraine, I threw away my  staff, and "let go."_ T_ simply flashed  down thc slope, dodged. and rounded  a cliff, * turned awkwardly into .Aspen'  Gulch, and tumbled heels over head���������������������������  into safety.  Then 1 picked myself up, to see the  slide (go by within twenty feet, with  great 'broken trees sticking out of its  side, and a snow-cloud "dragging above.  start a gun as powerful as the 4.7 naval  gun, but this is to be lapidly increased,  so that soon wc will see heavy naval  ordnance mounted on a disappearing  carriage fired wnen the vessel is awash  ���������������������������that is, when there is only a gun  platfonn out of water and visible. Such  guns as the 10-14 inch will be relegated  to the scrap heap within the next ten  years.  The reason is that a powerful submersible will almost invariably do all  her destructive \y,ork under water by  means of the ram ancl her torpedoes.  The only exception will be in action  against land fortifications. That these  will then bo destroyed by a high explosive fired from a small calibre gun  or by bombs  dropped from aeroplanes.  Already modem submarines are far  and away ahead of those of the first  Holland type, constructed ten years  since. They arc not only immune  against all gun fire, but safe in manoev-  ring below thc surface; they are now  quite comfortable for their crews, and  are steadily growing in size.  The first Holland boats used in Eng-  laud, for instance, were only G3 feet  long, wim a beam of twelve feet, and  a submerged displacement of 120 tons  and engines of 120 horsepower. Those  now being finished measure 198 feet,  with a breadth -*of .twenty-four feet,  haying a submerged" displacement of  nearly 1,000 tons, and are run with  1,600 horsepower engines, at a speed  of IS knots per hour  on  the surface:  NEWFOUNDLAND TOO  SENDS GOOD NEWS  OF THE GREAT WORK DODD'S KIDNEY PILLS ARE DOING  QUICK RELIEF FROM THAT  PERSISTENT, HACKING G0U8H  We mean the kind of cough it gives  one a cold shiver just to hear���������������������������the dry,  deep-seated hack���������������������������hack���������������������������hack���������������������������t hat  seems as if it were tearing the very  vitals.

C, Feb. 13.���������������������������The Estimates and Budget speech in the local  legislature are looked for on Friday  next, an'd with night sittings thereafter it is both hoped and expected  to bring the session to a close before  the advent of March. There will be  no redistribution until a settling of  population during thc next natural  term of parliament has made sucn  procedure practicable, and' thc Premier will probably go to the country  in the early spring upon his railway  policy and arrangement for Better  Terms with the Dominion, That he  will be returned   is   freely conceded.  That this should be the case is the  highest possible tribute to the cleanliness and efficiency of the government given this province under Mr.  McBride, who (despite the .opportunities created by an overwhelming majority at his back) has preserved his  administration from the suspicion of  scandal and discharged thc country's  business with keen efficiency and  statesmanlike foresight.  Of the business of parliament during the past week, the passage .of the  Forest Bill through committee has  been the outstanding feature. In  the Municipal Committee it was foreshadowed that a recommendation will  be made to the Government to appoint a commission to redraft the  Municipal Clauses Act into three distinct parts, dealing respectively with  cities of the first class, urban municipalities and cities of the second  class and rural municipalities. This  or another commission will fully investigate the contrasted merits and  demerits of government by commission and municipal ownership.
