Many, members of the Farmers' In-  ��������������������������� stitute of this section have failed' to  pay _ the-membership fee for the current   year.   These   fees must be paid  t,this month, to enable "the secretary  to make his report and secure vthe  annual grant from the government.  _* MT-C--JJ- B"ry.    -/ice-president of.  the C7T..R., accompanied by Mr. F.  W.  Peters,  general superintendent of  , the system, passed down the Valley  on a special train Saturday morning,  going to Penticton, thence to Kere-  meos and east again by way of the  Crows' Nest.  In the league lacrosse match at  Vernon, Wednesday afternoon, the  Vernon team won out by one goal,  after Kelowna tieing the count by a  -score of-6-6-at-full-time.��������������������������� The game  throughout was one of the fastest  ever seen on the Vernon grounds, and  the finish most^ exciting.  Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Rodie returned  from the Nortli west last Thursday.  In -his absence Mr. Rodie made some  valuable business connections with  realty firms for his firm of Harvey &  Rodie, which they believe will prove  beneficial in bringing the superior  merits of this section to the notice  of intending homeseekers.  Annie Seymour, a dusky damsel of  the Okanagan lake tribe, was on a  visit to the Enderby reserve last  week to participate in a potlatch. On  Thursday evening Constable Bailey  caught* her, bag and baggage, going  into one of the Chinese houses, and  on Friday she was taken before Magistrate Rosoman charged with being  drunk and  disorderly.   Fined $5.  Vernon is about to take over the  management of the milk service of  that city, 'and is "making arrangements with A. McQuarrie, of the  Glengarrack Dairy, to take almost  the entire output of milk. Mr. McQuarrie is therefore arranging to discontinue his milk service in Enderby.  This is to be greatly regretted, for  the milk service of the Glengarrack  has been A 1, and it will be difficult  to get its equal.  a certain    size   and   cleanness.    The  comapny   has   placed  'ten -. or fifteen  tons of   its   own special seed in the  hands     of   Hullcar   farmers,,  to be  the seed for   potatoes grown on "the  gigh lands of Hullcar. . The.company  guarantees to take all ootatoes grow-' liott, Kelowna  en from - this   seed, of a ce'rtain size  strong; Mr. H  and quality, and to Pay therefor $25  per ton.  -  BOARD OF TRADE WORK  '  There was a meeting of the Executive Council of the Associated Boards  of Trade _of the Valley at Armstrong,  yesterday afternoon.'*      The, following"  delegates were in attendance:  President,    Mr.    E.

The teams are now in the  best of condition, and are very evenly matched.  9 10  RETURN FROM ASSEMBLY  Rev. Mr. Campbell and Mr. A. L.  Fortune returned last Friday from  the meeting of the general assembly  of the Presbyterian church. Both  gentlemen were much impressed by  the magnitude of the gathering, both  iu numbers and the nature of the  business undertaken and disposed'of.  It was the largest assembly meeting  in point of numbers that either of  them have participated in, and the  questions discussed were of the greatest importance. While there, Mr.  Fortune had the pleasure of meeting  'Governor Bulyea, ,who was particularly kind in showing Mr. Fortune  about the city of Edmonton. He  could n*ot recognize any of the landmarks which stood at Fort Edmonton half a century ago when he  treked across the continent, but Mr.  Fortune felt it was a great privilege  to visit the scenes of long ago and  Enderby fans will sec some baseball contrast what then existed with the  when Armstrong meets Enderby on magnificent city ' of to-day.

Ruth couldn't change that ''practice, but she  did make them more careful where  they bought their milk���������������������������especially  when there was a baby in the house.  Then, too. she shared all her secrets of  whore and how to buy cheaply. Some-  ' times advantage was taken of these  hints, but more often not. They didn't pay much more for many articles  than she did, hut they didn't get as  good quality. However, as' long as  the food tasted good and satisfied  their hunger you couldn't make them  take an extra effort and get stuff because it was more nutritious or more  healthful. Thoy couldn't think ahead  except in the matter of saving* dollars and cents.  These people, of course, were of thc  lower class.      There was another element of decidedly  finer quality.    Giuseppe,  for example,  was one  of these  and   there   were   hundreds   of   others.  It  was  among  these  that  Ruth's  influence, counted for the most.      They  not   only   took   advantage   of   her   superior intelligence in  conducting their  households,    but    they    breathed    in  something of the soul of her.      When  r   saw   them   send   for   her   in   their  grief and   in   their  joy,  when  I   heard  them  ask her advice with almost the  confidence   with   which   they   prayed,  when   I    heard    them   give   her   such'  names   as   "the   angel   mother,"   "the  blessed   American   saint,"   I  felt   very  proud and very humble.     Such things  made   me   glad   in   another   way   for  thc  change which   had   taken  her  out  of   tlie   old   life   where  were  lost and brought  where    they    counted  .These   people   stripped  live  with  their  hearts  . surface.       They   don't  very   quickly   into   close   touch   with  them.     Ruth herself was a good deal  like  that and  so  her   influence   for a  clay among them counted for as much  as a' 'year with  the old crowd.  In   the   meanwhile . I   resumed   my.  night school at the end of thc summer  vacation   and   was   glad   to   get   back  to   it.      I  had   missed  the  work  and  ."wciit  at.it  this  next winter with  increased   eagerness   to   perfect   myself  in my trade.  'During this second year, too, I never  ," relaxed-my "efforts  to  keep  my-gang-  up  to  standard  and,  whenever  possi-  . ble,   to "better   it   by   the   addition   of  new   men.      Every   month   I   thought  ' I increased .the aspect of the men for  me by my fair dealing with. them.    1  don't mean to say.I fully realized the  expectations of which I had dreamed.  I  suppose  that  at   first  1  dreamed  a  .   bit'wildly.    There, was very little sentiment  in  the  relation of the men  to  me, although there* was some.    Still, I  don't want to give the impression that  I made them a gang of blind followers  such as some religious cranks get together. It was necessary to make them  see   that  it   was   for   their   interest   to  work for me and with me and  that I  did do."'I made them see also that in  order   to   work   for   mo   they   had   to  work . a.   little    more, faithfully    than  they  worked  for  others.      So  it   was  a straight business proposition.    What  sentiment there was came through the  personal  interest I took in  them  outside of their work.     It was this which  made   them   loyal   instead   of   merely  hard   working.       It'was   this   which  made them my gang instead of Cork-  ery's  gang���������������������������a   thin?  thai   counted   for  =^.^goo'J^d Gftl���������������������������la4&p=o-n.  Tho personal reputation 1 had won  gavo me new opportunities of wliich  1 took every advantage this second  year. It put me in touch with the  responsible heads of departments.  Through them 1 was able to acquire  a much broader and more accurate  knowledge of the business a.s a whole.  I asked as many questions here as  I nad below. I received more inlel-  _.:iguit_iinswt:riJ.ii.in3-WiiS-ubk- to .understand them more intelligently. 1 not  only learned prices, but where to get  authoritative prices. As mr as possible I mado myself acquainted with  tlie men working for tlie building constructors and for those working for  linns whose specially was tlie tearing down of buildings. J used my  note-book its usual and entered the  name of every man who, in his line,  seemed   to   tne   especially   valuable.  And everywhere, I found that my  experiment with the gang was well  known. I found also lhat my tendency for asking questions was even  better known. It passed as a joke  in a good many eases. But better  than this, I found that I had established a reputation for sobriety, industry and level-herulodness. I can't  help smiling how little those things  counted for me with the United Woollen or when 1 sought work after leaving that company. Mere they counted for a lot. I realized that, when  it  camo time  for me  to seek credit.  In the meanwhile 1 didn't neglect  the light for clean politics in my  ward.  I resigned from the presidency of the  young men's club at the end of a year  and we. elected a young lawyer who  was taking a great interest in the  work down here to fill the vacancy.  That was a fine selection. The man  was fresh from thc law school and  was full of ideals which dated back  to the Mayflower. He hadn't been  long enough in the world to have  thom dimmed and  was full of energy.  He took hold of the original ideal and  developed it until the organization in-"  eluded every ward in this section, of  the city. He held rallies every month  and brought down big speakers and  kept the sentiment of the youngsters  red hot. This had its effect upon the  older men and before wo know it we  had a machine thai looked like a real  power in the whole^eity. Sweeney  saw it and so did the bigger bosses of  both parties. But Lhe president kept  clear of alliances with any of them.  He stood pat wilh what promised to  be a balance of power, ready to swing  it to the cleanest man of either party  who came up for oflice.  I    made    several    speeches    myself,  though it was hard  work for mc.      1  don't   run   to   that   sort   of   thing.       1  did it, however, just because I didn't  like it and  because  1 felt it was  the  duty of a citizen to do something now  and  then  he  doesn't  like for his  city  and his country.     Thc old excuse with  me had been that politics was a dirty  business at best and  that it ought to  be  left to  the lawyers and such who  had  something to  gain  from  it.   The  only men I ever, knew  who went into  it at ail were those who had a talent  for  it  and  who   liked   it.'     Of course,  that's dead wrong.     A man who won't  take the trouble to find out about thc  men   up   for    office    and    who   won't  bother himself to get out  and  hustle  for the best of them isn't a good citizen   or   a   good   American.       l-Ie   deserves   Lo   bc  governed    by   the   newcomers and deserves all they hand out  to him.     And the time to do the work  isn't whon  a man  is up for president  of   the   United   States,   it's   when   the  man   i.s   up   for   the   common   council.  Tho  higher  up  a  politician   gets,   the  loss the  influence of  the single  voter  counts.  , Tt was in the sprj lg that some of  my ideals received ;. set-back. The  alderman from our wi.rd died suddenly  and Rafferty was na.urally hot after  the vacancy. He-came to see me  about it, but before he broached this  subject lie laid another before me  that took away my breath. Tt was  nothing else than thai -1 should go  into partnership with him tnuor the  firm name of "Carleton and t'tafferly."'  I couldn't believe it possible that he  was in a position to take-such a^step  within a couple of yoars ut digging  in Hie ditch. "But when he explained  _the scheme to me, it was as simple as  rolling "off a log. A firm of liquor"  dealers had agreed to back nim���������������������������form  a stock company' and give- him a third  interest to manage it. He had spoken  to thom of me and said he'd do-it if  they would make it a half - interest  quarter.  Dan," I said, "'we'd  lot   of   business   to  every grand-daughter out ���������������������������working."  Dan   came  around   to ��������������������������� the   flat   one  night after the election.     He was- as  happy a&.'a boy over his victory.  "Carleton,"  he said,  again,   "it's  too  domd bad ye ain't an Irishmon."  After   he   had   gone,   Ruth   said   to  me:  "I don't thjnl_ Mr. Rafferty will make  a  bad alderman at all."  and give us each a  ".But good Lord,  have to swing a  make it go."   "  "Never you worry about thot,  mon," he said. "I'll fix thot all right  if I'm elided to the boord."  "Vou  mean   city  contracts?"   I  said.  "Sure."  J began to see. The liquor house  was looking for more licenses and-  would got their pay out of Dan even  if tho firm didn't make a cent. But  Dan with such capital back of him  as well as his aldermanic power was  sure to get the contracts. He would  leave the actual work .to me and my  me  I sat down and for two hours tried  to make Dan realize how this crowd  wanted to use him. I couldn't, ln  addition to being blinded by his overwhelming ambition, he actually could-  n^se<^an-yt-hing--^ook-ed^in^whatH.he>-  wanted. He couldn't understand why  he should let such an opportunity drop  for someone else to pick up. Hc had  slipped out of my hands completely.  This was whero thc difference between  five or six yoars in America as against  two hundred showed itself. And yel  what was thc old stock doing to offset such personal ambition and energy  as   Itaffcrty  stood   for?  __'_'Xo,- Dip.11,���������������������������- I���������������������������said, -"J -oan'l--do--il.

"Woll," he said, "it'll be a folne fight  anyhow."  1 went to lho president of tho club  nnd told him that hore was where wc  bad to stop Rafferty. He listened and  then  he said:  "Well, bore's where wc do stop him."  We went af the job in whirlwind  fashion. I spoke- n half dozen times,  but to save my life I couldn't say what  I wanted to say. 13very time f stood  up I seomed to see Dan's big round  faee and I remembered tlio kindly  things hc used to do for thc old ladies.  And 1 knew that Dan's offer to lake  mo- into partnership wasn't prompted  altogether by selfish motives. Ho  could have found othor men who would  have served hi.s purpose better.  In tlio meanwhile Dan had organized "Social Clubs" in half a dozen  sections. For tho first few weeks of  the campaign I never heard of him  except as loading grand marches. But  fho last week he waded' in. There's  no use going into details. He beat  us. He rolled up a tremendous majority. Thc president of the club  couldn't understand it. He was discouraged.  "1 had every boy in the ward out  working," he said.  "Ves," I said, "but Dan had every  grandmother and  every daughter and  CHAPTER XVIIJ.  Maturing   Plans  I  received several offers from other  firms and as a result of these my wages  were   advanced   first   to   three   dollars  a  day  and  thon  to  three and  a half.  Still Ruth refused to take things easier  by increasing tlie household expenses.  During  tho  third   year  we  lived   exactly as we had lived during the first  year.      In a way it was easier to  do  this now  that  wo'knew there was  no  actual necessity for it.      Of course it  was easier, too, now that we had fallen  into  <a  familiar  routine.      The  things  which   had   seemed   to  us  like  necessities when  we came down  here now  seemed  like  luxuries.      And  wo  none  of us had either the craving for luxuries or thc time to enjoy them had we  wished  to spend the money on them.  In the matter of clothes we cared for  nothing  except    to    bc    warmly  and  cleanly   dressed.       Strip   the   problem  of clothes down to this and it's not a  very   serious   one.       To   realize   that  you've only to remember how the aver-  ago farmer dresses or how the homesteader dresses.      Jt's  only when you  introduce   style   and   the   conventions  lhat the matter becomes complicated.  Perhaps it was easier for me to dress  as 1 pleased than for the boy or Ruth,  but even  they got right, down  to bed  rock.       Tho   boy   wore   grey   flannel  shirts   and  so   at  a' stroke  did  away  with  collars and  cuffs.      For tiie rest  a   simple   blue  suit,   a  cap,   stockings  and shoes were all hc needed  outside  his   underclothes    which    Ruth   made  for him.     Ruth herself dressed in plain  gowns  that  she  could   do  up   herself.  For  the street, she still had the costumes she came down here with. NoiW  of us kepi any extra clothes for parade. '     ��������������������������� '       -  We carried out lhc same idea in  our food,' as I've tried lo show; wc  insisted thal.it must be wholesome and  that there must bo enough of it; Those  were the - only two .things .that counted.

Here again  the' farmer and the pioneer were our  models. Jf anyone ��������������������������� hi thc country  had lived tho way we wero living, it  wouldn't have seemed worth telling  about. 1 find the fact-which amazes  people in our experiment was that we  should have tried the same standard  in the city. Everyone'seems to think  this was a most dangerous thing to  attempt. The men who on a camping trip consider themselves well fed  on such food as we ha,d to eat expect  to 'starve to death' if placed on the  same diet onco within sound of the  trolley cars. And on the camping trip  they do ten times the physical labor  and do it month after month in air  lhat whets the appetite. Then they  come back and boast how strong  they've. grown, and begin to eat like  hogs again and wonder why they are  sick.  ��������������������������� 'We camped out in the city���������������������������that's  all wc did.

Why   can't   a   man  This third year finished my course  in masonry. 1 came out in Juno with  a trade at which J could earn from  ing isn't altogether dependent on sirloin steaks, starched collars and music  halls, as I've hoard n good many people claim,  serve a. useful purpose. What I do  say is that they aren't absolutely necessary; that a high standard of liv-  lay bricks without the theatre?  As a mailer of fact, however, we  could have had even the amusements  if we'd wanted them. For those who  needed such things in order to preserve  a high standard of living thoy were  hero. And I ydon't say they didn't  three dollars to five dollars a day, according to my skill. It was a trade,  too, where thore was pretty generally  steady employment. A good mason  is moro in domand than a good lawyer. Not only that but a good mason  can find work in any city in this  country. Wherever ho lands, he's sure  of a. comfortable living. I was told  that out west some mon were making  as high as ten dollars a day.  J had also qualified in a more modest way as a mechanical draftsman.  I could draw my own plans for work  and what was more useful" still, clo  my work from- the plans of others.  By now 1 had also become a fairly  proficient Italian scholar. I could  .speak the language fluently and read  ���������������������������"it fairly well. It wasn't the fault  of Giuseppe if my pronunciation was  sometimes queer and if Very often 1  used the jargon of the provinces. My  object was served as long, as I could  make myself understood to the men.  And I could do that perfectly.  This year I watched Rafferty's progress with something like envy. The  firm was "D. Rafferty and Co." Within two months I began to see the namo  on his dump carts whenever 1 went to  work. "Within six months he secured  a big contract for ropaving a long  strelch-of street in our ward. 1 knew  our firm had put in a bid on it and  know thoy must have boen in a position Lo put in a mighty low bid. 1  didn't wonder so much about how Dan  got this away from us as I did how  hc got it away from Sweeney. That  was explained to mo later when I found  that Sweeney was in reality back of  the liquor dealers. Sweeney owned  about half thoir stores and had taken  this method to bring Dan back* to the  fold, once hc found he couldn't check  his  progress.  During this year Dan bought a new  house and married. We went to the  wedding and it was a grand affair with  half the ward there. Mrs. .Rafferty  was a nice looking, girl, daughter of a  well-to-do Irishman in the real estate  business. She had received, a good  education in a convent and was altogether a girl Dan could be proud of.  The house was an old-fashioned structure built by one of thc old families  who had boen forced to move by thc  foreign invasion. Mrs. Rafferty had  furnished it somewhat lavishly but  comfortably.  As Ruth and I came back that night  I said: '  "I suppose if it had been 'Carleton  and Rafferty' I might have had a house  myself by now."  "J guess it's better as il is, Billy,"  she said, wilh a smile.  Of course it was better,, but I began to feel discontented with my present position. 1 felt uncomfortable  at still being merely a foreman. Whon'  we reached thc house Ruth and I took  thc bank book and figured ��������������������������� out iust  what our capital in money was. . Including the' boy's savings whieh we  could use in an emergency it,.amounted to fourteen hundred dollars. During the.first year we saved .one hundred- and twenty dollars, which added to the eighty we came down here  with," mado two hundred dollars? "During the second, year wc. saved three,  hundred and ninety -dollars.'" - During  the third yoar we-saA-ed"six-hundred  dollars. " This,made a total of eleven  hundred and ninety dollars' in'the  bank. ' Thc boy'had saved more than  two hundred dollars . over his clothes  in  thc last two years.  ' (To be .continued.)  common indeed is the sight that the  Dyaks themselves pay no heed to  these dangerous reptiles; and yet it is  no unusual thing in Borneo lo hear of  some human life being taken by a  crocodile.  For months perhaps the erocodiles  in a river live at peace with mankind  -and then suddenly one of these creatures will carry off some lad bathing  in the river or even attack some one  paddling, along in his boat. A Dyak  girl, when sitting and paddling at the  stern of a canoe', was knocked over  inlo the water and carried away by a  crocodile and her companions could  do nothing to save her.  Thore seems to be no reason why the  crocodile should suddenly show a man-  eating propensity in this way. The  Dyaks account for it by curious superstitions. They say that if food is  offered to a person and hc refuses il  and goes away without at least touching it some misfortune is sure to befall  him ancl hc will most probably be attacked by a crocodile.  Also it is said that ono of the ways  tho gods punish crime is by sending  a crocodile lo attack thc culprit; nnd  il is often said by Dyaks of somo one  who has boon killed by a crocodile that  probably ho has displeased the gods  either by paying no heed'to the warnings'sent him in dreams or by means  of omen birds or by committing some  hidden crime.  The Dyaks of Borneo will not kill a  crocodile except in revenge. If the animal will live at peace'with him the  Dyak has no wish to start a quarrel; if,  however, the crocodile breaks the  truce and kills someone then he feels  justified in retaliating. Under these  circumstances thc Dyaks set to work  lo find the culprit and go on catching  and killing crocodiles until they succeed in doing so. The Dyaks generally  wear brass ornaments and by cutting  open a dead crocodile thoy can easily  find out if hc is the creature they wish'  lo punish.  THE SOFT ANSWER.

If was  FAT   IN  EVENING  WHAT ARE  PURE  CANDIES?  A largo manufacturer of confectionery is disturbed in mind about a statement, attributed to Dr. Woods Hutchinson, that glucose i.s moro digestible  in candies than sugar. In his kit-'  chens ho has nover permitted its uso,  and he gives a reason wliich commands respect:  Whon you pay eighty cents or more  a pound for candy you unconsciously  believe you arc securing sugar, and if  the man who sells it is giving you  glucose instead, then he is perpetrating a   fraud  on you.  Vet glucose occurs naturally in  fruits and .in honey; it is in  stance the same as grape sugar  sugar itself must bo converted  this substance by tho first process of  digestion. When freed properly of  impurities, glucose is more digestible  than cane sugar. It would seem, therefore, that pure candies can be made  with it, and tho fraud would not be  in the composition, but in the sale of  the commodity with the tacit understanding that it was made of cane  sugar. If the confections were labelled  ancl sold as grape sugar, there could  bo  no  false pretence.  MORNING   AND  MILK :  It is well known that afternoon milk  is richer in fat than-the morning milk,  and this difference is largely, if not  wholly, duo to thc shorter time of the'  morning milking.

Just  think! As soon as a single thin layer  of Zam-Buk is applied to a wound or  a sore, such injury is insured against  blood poison! Not one species of microbe has been found that Zam-Buk  does not kill!  Then again. As soon as Zam-Buk  is applied to a sore, or a cut, or to  skin disease, it stops the smarting.  That is why children are such friends  of Zam-Buk. They care nothing for  the science of the thing. All they  know is that Zam-Buk stops their  pain. Mothers should never forget  this.  Again. As soon as Zam-Buk is applied to a wound or to a diseased  part, tho cells beneath the skin's surface are so stimulated that new  healthy tissue is quickly formed. This  forming of fresh healthy tissue from  below is Zam-Buk's secret of healing.  The tissue thus formed is worked up  to the surface and literally casts off  the diseased tissue above it. This is  why   Zam-Buk  cures   are   permanent.  Only the other day Mr. Marsh, of  101 Delorimier Ave, Montreal, called  ���������������������������upon tho Zam-Buk Co. and told them  that for over twenty-five years he had  boen a martyr to eczema. His hands  were at one time so covered with sores  that he had to sleep in gloves. Four  years ago Zam-Buk was introduced to  him, and in a few months it cured him.  To-day���������������������������over throe years after his  cure of a disease hc had for twenty -  -five years���������������������������hc is still cured, and has  had no. trace of any return -of the  eczema!

OH,   THE   POOR   WORKMAN!  The   workmen's   compensation ��������������������������� acts  that are now so popular all over civilization-are giving rise to some curious  legal   problems.      For     example,   the  Paris courts have just been asked to  decide tho case of Mile. Rethore, whose  snake-charming    performances     have  been  a, music-hall    sensation.      Mile.  Rethore was so unfortunate as to be  bitten by one of her delightful pets and  she, has  claimed  compensation   under  tlio act of 190G on the ground that the  offending snake was an instrument of  labor.    The court has decided for the  "lady���������������������������no   .Frenchman" worthy of the  .name could do otherwise, and so Mile.  Rethore is to receive"a "pension as soon  -as the doctors have'determined thc ex-  . lent of her, injury.   In Germany, a farm  laborer,demanded compensation for injury  -caused ,.to him  by an .accident  "while on, his  way. to  church  to  pray  ��������������������������� for rain.

I worked on the opposition paper,  but Hartwich and IMiad been friends  for years, and we generally met every  morning after our respective papers  had gone to press.  I noticed on Hartwich's return from  his ablutions that his face looked old  and moro worn than usual, but I made  no comment, deeming it always best  not to say anything about those mat--  ters. (1  We loft the printers' realm and  sought the paper littered city room.  It was deserted save for a fat copy-  reader engaged in writing a letter. He  had the physique to maul cord-wood,  and the pen looked like a darning-  needle in his huge paw. Hartwich. attempted a little joke.  "l5on't editorialize," . he admonished  the corpulent one, who, with a foolish  grin, placed a great hand over his missive, which I correctly surmised was a  billet-doux to his beloved. ~  "I am making it short and sweet  tonight," replied 'the heavy Romeo:  "It won't carry over a nine'head." He  smiled at his superior fondly and resumed iiis love-lorn labors.  "It's a curious thing about that  child," observed Hartwich, referring to  the copy-reader, as we seated ourselves  in an all-night ,cafe much frequented  by newspaper men; "he thinks he's  in love. I-Ie writes her a letter every  mo.rning. It is to him the one important event of the twenty-four hours.  He is nearly thirty, getting bald, hasn't  a. cent, and���������������������������being girl-struck���������������������������is no  damn good for work. Yet he will  marry her. Hc will borrow the money  and marry her. She's a flat-chested  anaemic, and he is bound to marry her.

It is ever that  way." ,     '   ���������������������������  The bacon and eggs and coffee ar-.  rived/ and we disposed of them hurriedly, being desirous of the keen'taste  of.tobacco after a meal. ,  Hartwich, after hc had lit his pipe,  slumped down in his - chair. There  was something rumpled and pathetic  about liim, as one -who-has slept in his  clothes and arisen hopeless and dejected to view a cold, cheerless dawn.  We talked-in a desultory fashion until^], .finally qbscrVed, taking a look at  my watch: "'"About time for-you to  go-home, hey?

He leaned toward me a little,  and I noticed the fine wrinkles about  his- eyes and ,the little touch of gray  at his temples. He-was'scarcely thirty-  five, but ho looked- ten years older.  "You know Mrs. Hartwich?" I nodded.  His question brought up the memory  of a tall, slimpsy, faded woman, a  blonde, with a baby voice, who was  eternally caressing him. .1 hadjoiown  her before they/were marriccT They  had no children, and���������������������������but' his voice  broke in upon my thoughts.

I am tired of her. To me she seems  like a dead weight." I-Ie muttered  something about my understanding him  correctly.._ I__mad<__no rcply._and Jie  continued:  "I have worked like a dog, and yet  she complains. She says that T am not  a success.

All the  time it does not matter to her what  I am up against. It is her troubles  that count. She is the one important  thing. Yet she gives nothing and does  nothing, and I am tired, dead tired of  the way she looks, the way she talks  and the \yay she acts.

Do  you know how a little thing like" perfume can get on a man's nerves? She  reeks with it, the rooms are full of it,  and I can almost smell it over the  'phone. At times it nearly drives me  insane. I have asked her to get something else, but she merely said I "was  trying to deprive her of the things she  loved."  "But, Hartwich, I always thought���������������������������"  but he would not let me finish.  "I know what you were about to say.  You were about to say that she is very  affectionate toward me.

She  looks to me- for all her physical and  mental comforts, yet gives nothing in  return.   She is as one dead.  '"When I first met her,- she attracted  me by her very negativeness. * I was  strong then, and prided myself on being able to give all. Then I did not  quibble over what I got ,in return. I  found happiness, as I supposed, in giving. But with the struggle, the long  hours, , and the wear ���������������������������and tear of the  newspaper game, I lost strength. I  turned to her expecting comfort'and  help.' I only, found \her demanding  more things of me, and whining because I could- not give them to her.  In some subtle way, shcliad it all so  arranged that I was to' blame for  everything. Even you, my friend, har.-  bor'the secret thought, 'Well, you "married her.'" I-Ie struck-the table with  his clenched fist, his lean, dark face  twitching. "You would say that; but",  by the.gods, you would be wrong. She  married me. ' She. found me,'entwined  around me. She knew she could do it.  She told me I-was the only man she  .hatUever Joved. She appealed to my  egotism. She got ��������������������������� me, got me easy.

"She is wrong," he declared, "in the  sense of being able to get what she  wants by simply-being weak. She got  me, she" holds me by ��������������������������� being weak.  What is there to it? I go home, open  the door, - and "there, is that* ghastly  heliotrope.-^ Then,"as I turn on "the  light,*-"I hear her -whining- from the  bedroom, because I .came in late. * Yet  she has known for years that-1,cannot  do- otherwise.

There is not'a turn' of the  game, but what she holds the winning  cards; and the greatest one is, that  down in my heart, I cannot' help feeling sorry for her, for I know she is  "ab'solutel^helplessf^She^thinks^I^love-  her, and I let her think it���������������������������but I only  feel sorry for'her. You might think  that its still my egotism that prompts  me to think that she cannot get along  without me, but that is not true.  Economically I. know she is helpless.  Mentally 1 know she has to have, a  prop. And she is no longer young.  There is no hope for her except, with  me, and yet she says that 1 do not treat  hor right.

I have  not the money to maintain her ancl myself separately; for even as it is, we  have barely enough to get along, the  way she manipulates things. Tt does  not seem to make any difference how  much I earnr-it all goes.  "It costs ine a lot of misery to play  thc game, but 1 am kind to her and do  the best r know how. I cannot leave  her and I cannot tell her the truth.  Perhaps I am worse than a brute for  not telling her the truth. But can't  you see she'knows'nothing .of truth?  Her whole life has been spent in successfully getting something 'for nothing. She has never once, suffered the  pain of effort���������������������������never once suffered i'or  me���������������������������and for ten years I have read  copy and stood over forms, for her to  cook my breakfast, foi- her to call me  up over the telephone when she has a  headache. Sho places a high value  on her love for me, but I know there  is no value to anything unless there  is a demand for it; and by her incessant whining, she has killed any demand for her love. I don't want her  love, -whether it is real or imitation.  It palls  on  me and sickens mc.    But  Worms feed upon the vitality of  children and endanger their lives. A  simple and effective cure is Mother  Graves'  Worm   Exterminator.  the world would say I am a cad for  whimpering. Tonight was a hard night,  and I got to thinking what a relief it  would be to go away alone some place  and not have to think that someone  was dependent on me, not have to go  home and hear that same whine, that  same 'Why" didn't you do so and so?'  Good Lord!" hc dropped his head in  his hands;  "I am so tired!"  Just then the waiter came back to  our table. *'You are wanted at the  'phone,  Mr. Hartwich," he said.  Hartwich sighed and arose slowly.  A moment later I heard him speaking.  "Yes,  don't worry." , \  "I'll be home shortly."  "I could not come at midnight, dear."  a  "Yes,   yes.    By-by."     There   was  tone of infinite patience in his voice.  He returned to the table, but did  not resume his seat. "I must be going," he announced in dreary tones.  At that moment the fat copy-reader  came in and inquired cheerfully, "go-  i-g home?"  "Yes," replied Hartwich, with1 an envious look at my position of careless  and untroubled ease.  The copy-reader, breathing heavily,  dropped , his huge bulk in. Hartwish's  chair. "1 wish I had a home to go  to," he bleated, "and a little wife waiting foi1 me."  Hartwich looked at him with sympathetic understanding and then with  an  abrupt,  "good  night!"  passed  out.  The' corpulent copy-reader buttered  a, silce of bread, devoured it in two  bites, and mumbled thickly as he "swallowed: *,',������������������������������������������������������"  "The old man has a fine wife, and  she thinks the world of him, always  calling him up���������������������������"' The'balance of his  remark was lost in a second silce'of  bread.*- \ .  ] had nothing to,say, for Hartwich's  wife had been the one girl I had  wanted'to marry.-but���������������������������thank my lu*cky  stars!���������������������������he had'cut me out; and she  had never told him anything but that  1 was a friend, just-a friend.

The  route had not   been decided upon at  the time the   Government signed the  agreement    with   the   company.   Enderby and Armstrong were as good as  off   the   map,    apparently,  when the  railway   company    and    the  Government entered into the aforesaid agreement.   Now the C. N. R. is attempting to hold up Armstrong to the tune  of $50,000 to   get   the mainline into  the sister town.   Who is getting the  rake-off ?   Is this the kind of a game  the railway company is working ? Is  the Government going to permit it ?  Are the   good   people   of Armstrong  going   to   stand    for   this kind of a  hold-up ?

Is   this the road  i which we have been told is "out for  Two years ago the prospect of any  extension of sheep raising in Canada  appeared very remote. Except in the  case of breeders of pure-bred flocks,  the prevailing attitude regarding the  possibilities to be attained through a  development of the industry was  largely one of indifference and unconcern. To-day, however, a very great  change in point of view is manifested  particularly 0n tlie part of farmers  interested only in the breeding and  rearing of market sheep.  An announcement has already been  made    regarding    the    action  of the  Minister   of    Agriculture,    the   Hon.  Martin Burrell,- in making provision  for a special sale, during the months  of' September   and    October next, of  pure-bred rams and grade ewes in the  Maritime    provinces   and   in   British  Columbia.   It    has    oecn   ascertained  that these- provinces have need,  not  only of selected sires, but also of female -.stock   to   serve as the foundation of   grade   flocks for the production  of marketable lambs.      The cooperation    of   the   Dominion    Sheep  Breeders'   Association,  has   been   secured to assist   in   this work, and a  grant of $15,000 has been made direct  to the   Association,    to be expended  for this purpose   in accordance with  conditions   imposed    by  the  Thursday, June 20, 1912  Bank of Montreal  Established   817  CAPITAL   all   paid   up,    $15,413,000:   REST, $15,000,50������������������.3{.

Subsequent to    the  distribution  of  selected    breeding   stock  in  different  localities, it is proposed that the appointment of 'one or more experienced  sheep men shall be arranged for who  shall spend their time in visiting the  farms of those    to   whom the sheep  are sold, in order that the latter may  have the benefit of competent advice  regarding  the    management  of their  flocks, the care of wool, marketing of  the clip   and    disposal'of their lamb  crop.   As the result of this policy, it  is believed that these centres will ultimately become    distributing points"  for high-class^ breeding stock and influential agencies    in  bringing about  an extension of sheep keeping in the  different provinces.

Team, Formerly   Star  Outfielder   With   Cincinnati,     Indianapolis,     Chicago  and Brooklyn, and Considered One of the Best  Players    of    His  Time. *������������������_  ��������������������������� The greatest 'play ever made ln  baseball was * made by Charles W.  Murphy when he acquired the. Chi-  jcago club.  But if you ask me tho greatest play  jack McCarthy.  ���������������������������ver made on the diamond, I believe It  ,was one that Hans Wagner made  ���������������������������gainet me when I was a member of  the Brooklyn team. I have seen a lot  'of plays that I considered great but  Mrrer one to equal that which the big  Dutchman pulled off, aiid lt Is hard  to understand even now how he managed to do it.  I always have considered Wagner  the greatest ball player I ever saw  and have given him credit for doing  more .than any shortstop in the world,  with the possible exception of Herman Long, but this play of which I'm  telling comes under the head of the  miracles.  It happened on the old Pittsburg  park, down at the head of the Ohio  river. We bad been giving the Pirates  a hard fight, but in the ninth inning  they were leading us by a score of 2  to 1. Lefty i.eifield.'who Is one of  the greatest left-handed pitchers I ever  batted against, was pitching, and he  was good. We had two men on bases.  and not a soul out. when I came to  bat. I knew the play was to bunt, but  Leifl-eld's fast ball was Jumping so  far that it was nest to impossible to  bunt it. .;!;..'asked permission to try  to poke the7ball over the third baseman, and it was granted. I figured  that If LeifiiMd kept the ball fast,  high and Inside the plate I mi^ht  draw Leach, who was playing third.'  out of position and chop the ball  either past him or over hia head. The  scheme worked out perfectly. I let  one ball go over, bluffing as If ..to  bunt Lelfield tried to keep the ball"  inside, but pitched high andjright over  the plate. 1 b*id shortened up on tha  bat. and just tapped theuball, on the  line over third. Leach was coming  forward at top speed, and although  he' leaped the ball cleared him. and-  it: looked as If one run would score  and that we would at, least tie the  game! Neither base" runner thought  there'-was'.a chance to catch the ball.  But Wagner -evidently -had been' in'  motion before, the ball was pitched.  Possibly he anticipated what 1 was  trying to do, for'as the-ball was dropping to the ground, aot more than  ten feet back of third (Hue, Wagner  lurched forward, stuck out one hand  and scooped the ball before it could  touch the dirt. " His plunge caused  him to turn a somersault onto foul  ground, but he sat up quickly," and  still sitting, tossed .the" ball, to second, completing the double play, and  the runner coming down from first  had to scramble to get back to the  bag and avert a triple play.

In addition to the twenty-seven first prizes of $50 each, there will  be eighty-one other cash prizes, ranging from $10 to $25 in our  1912 PRIZE CONTEST FOR FARMERS  This contest is along the same lines as the  one which was so successful last year, except  that there are three times'as many prizes, and  therefore three times as many chances for  each contestant to win. Every farmer in Canada who uses "Canada" Cement is eligible to ,  compete. The conditions are such that large  and small users of cement have equal opportunities to win a #50 prize.    ,  The contest'is divided into three classes, and there  are first, second, third and fourth prizes ($50, $25,  $15 and $10) in each class.  CLASS "A"���������������������������Prizes to be awarded to the four farmers in each province  who me most "Canada" Cement on their farms in 1912.  CLASS "B"���������������������������Prizes to be awarded to the four farmers in each  province who  send  photoeraplis of tlie best concrete  work done with   "Canada"   Cement   on their   farms  in 1912.  CLASS "c"���������������������������-Prizes to be awarded to the   four farmers  in each province who send the  best description, tcllinir how any piece of concrete work  was done with "Canada" Cement.      (Entries  for this prive must bc accompanied by pboto-  graphs of the work.)  Send  me  particulars  of your  Prize Contest.  In addition to thus being divided into  classes, so as to give small users of cement an  equal chance with those who use more, the  Contest is also divided into nine divisions, one  for each province. So you see you need only  to.compctc with the other farmers of your own  province, and not with those all over Canada.  Don't think that becauso you have never  used cement, you cannot win a prize.    Many  of last year's prize winners had  never used cement .before-they  entered the Contest. We .will send  you a free book, "What the ^  Fanner Can Do With Concrete,"'  that will not only help you in the  Contest, but will tell you everything you could want to know about  * tlie use of cement on the farm:  Don't delay, but send us your  name and adtoss to-day and eet  this free book J*d Wll pirticulars  of the Prize Contest rieht away.

This good piece  of news may sound too good to be  true to many   settlers who have put  that date should be allowed 40 acres  without regard to what settlement  duties they had performed. This  scheme was frustrated <by the squatters themselves, who induced the B.  G. parliament to oppose it.

This will  ment, and thc general unsatisfactory'  conditions which have prevailed for  the past few years. Nevertheless, it  is a fact. The Department of the Interior, Ottawa, is now represented in  the district by Mr. S. Maber, who is  require another six or eight weeks,  Before going to the coast Mr. Maber visited Mr. J. P. Shaw, M. P. P.  at Shuswap, and the whole situation  was taken up. As Mr. Shaw afterwards stated, "if the people interested in   government lands will pos-  now in the province looking in'-.o the \ sess    themselves   for   about   two or  whole situation.     Mr. Maber arrived.' three months   they may rest assured  at Victoria last Thursday to go into  the matter with the provincial officials, and both Premier McBride and  Hon. Wm. Ross promised that the  local. government would co-operate  cordially in getting everything  straightened out., Many of the land  claims in' the' railway belt are in a  somewhat tangled condition. The  land for a long time was treated hy  the Dominion Government just as if  it were prairie land, each homestead  being 160 acres. The result was that  the settlers could not perform the required settlement duties in the way  of clearing and planting the land. In  many of* these cases settlers took up  land in good faith .some years ago,  but have never cleared more than 15  or 20 acres, the rest of the land being still primeval forest. Mr. Mc.ber  will look into these cases individually  and will recommend whatever justice  seems required.  In other instances, it is reported  that many settlers- on forest land  have_squatted there without any serious intention of making a farm, but  only to hold a valuable piece of property.     These    also  will probably be  that the question will be settled, and  no doubt, settled to the best advantage of the entire public, giving due  consideration to all parties���������������������������lumbermen and squatters and tin fact all  others concerned."  "One thing has already been determined upon," said Mr. Shaw to a  Kamloops Standard reporter, "That  is that the homesteads will consist  of not less than 160 acres, except,  perhaps, in some rare instances where  the land is contiguous to cities. These  cases will be dealt with on their individual- merits.  "Mr. Maber is carefully going over  the ground and making a personal investigation as nearly as possible.  When he returns to Ottawa he will  make his report to the Department  of the Interior. And upon that report will depend almost entirely the  future regulations regarding lands in  the railway belt."  This question is a momentous one.  There-are some hundreds of applications in for lands in the railway  belt.* They have, not been granted,  some of them for no apparent reason.   As a   result' there are a great  treated as justice requires.   " Outside [ many squatters, both on government  of sections where irrigation is neces-'lands and    on   lands   in the timber  sary, there is really very^ little land  available for homesteading in. the  railway belt. It has either been  taken.up or else'is heavily timbered  and ;held as, timber limits by the  government/ ,In places" where the  land has been-logged off settlers have  gone"in,,but* in these cases also their-  -title;is doubtful;- and crown grants'  have not been issued.- --' _-- 7  -An_ effort to fix; things up..equitably  -was-'made.'-some '" three "years, agcr.by  Hon.,;- Prank .Oliver.

In the Mabel Lake Valley  alone there are any number of families'- who have "squatted, on land, and  faithfully complied with- every requirement of the.homestead law, and  yet they have been unable' to receive  any recognition from the homestead  lands department. > -  ' After Mr. Maber goes into the" individual cases he will,make'his report.

After telling  why the fruit should be thinned, and  laying down general rules for doing  it, which after all, is left largely to  the judgment of the grower, the report adds:  "Present indications are that this  year will see the, largest crop of tree  fruits British Columbia has yet had.  Throughout the province, from Vancouver Island to the Kootenays the  apple, prune, peach, pear and plum  trees have been full "of blossom, and  there has been no loss from frost or  unfavorable weather. Most of the  trees are certain to have a heavy  load of fruit, of which very much will  be undersized unless thinning is practiced. It is hoped that fruit-growers  will grasp the situation rightly. The  prices for undersized fruit are never  very remunerative. It, is always the  good, large, perfect fruits that bring  paying returns. This year the difference in price between fancy and low-  grade fruit'will be enofphasized. Large  yields of fruit are promised, in Ontario, invthe Middle States, Colorado  California, Montana, idaho, Oregon,  and Washington, as . well as in British Columbia. The North-western  States, in fact, have* the bumper  crop of their history; and they look  to the Canadian prairies to buy a  great deal of it, as times are good  in Canada, while money is scarce in  the United States.' This means that  there-will be plenty of poor fruit for  sale in our markets without any from  British   Columbia.   ,  Any 'shipper knows there will be  no' market for the - small- stuff, and  that even.in the earliest varieties we  can grow, returns' will be unsatisfactory for the small grades.' It is unlikely that any fruit-grower will thin  too much; it is .quite certain that  most growers will - not' thin enough'.  While the ' average man may know  about thinning, he is short-the nerve  necessary to carry it out. Most of  the growers in British Columbia have  not yet had enough experience'to  realize _the ' difference fin* profits on  large7and .small, sizes: .Those men  who ,see* the situation clearly and  who recognize the fundamental necessity foi\ adequate .thinning; should use  their' influence "in: getting their "neighbors to take it-up.-*  ���������������������������'        ---/-_   - .  To set-rules for. thinning is even  more difficult   than   to set rules for  pruning. The fruit-grower must determine for himself just how much  crop the tree will be able to carry.  Much depends on the variety, the age  of the tree, its vitality, the soil, cultivation, climate and district. Under  equal conditions the Winesap may be  thinned to, say, 5 inches, where the  Jonathan would be thinned to 6 or  7, and the Northern Spy to 8. In  thinning apples and pears it is only  with early varieties that more than  one should be left on any fruit-spur,  and with these varieties part of the  crop may be removed in one picking  and the balance" later. With whiter  varieties of apples it- is a good rule  to leave fruit only on each alternate  spur, to encourage annual bearing. A  very important point, well illustrated by the Yellow Newtown apple, is  that the centre apple of the cluster,  and not one of the side apples,  should remain.

A trolley  car had turned the corner, stopped for  some passengers to alight and started  off again, when a man turned the corner on the, run. and boarded the moving car. The two Victoria residents  who were standing on the corner, chat-,  ting, looked at each other in amazement.  "My. word! Did you see him run?"  one  remarked.  "The blooming ass!" replied his companion. "I wonder if he did not know  there was another car in twenty minutes?"  *    *    *  A young New-Vorker who has spent  a bit of his lime in Kussia was telling  a thrilling story of his hairbreadth  escape in Muscovy, and the young  woman who formed his audience leaned forward and hung upon his words  breathlessly.  "And they were so near," the young  man said, in a hoarse whisper induced  by the excitement of his recital, "that  we could see the dark muzzles of thc  wolves."  "Oh, how lucky!" exclaimed the  young woman, "flow glad you- must  have-been that they had their muzzles on!"'  John Sharp Williams says the best  nominating speech he ever heard was  made by Private John Allen, who used  to be a member of thc house from  Mississippi.  The man Allen wished to get on the  ticket was an ex-Confederate soldier  who had lost both legs and had a  crippled arm. There were many things  that'could have said about the man's  war record, but Allen wished lo bc  brief.  lie got up,* looked at the follow, and  brought the entire gathering to its  feet by  his speech.   He said:  "I desire to nominate all that's  left  of  poor John  Smith."  *    *    *  Henry possessed an imagination, and  at the tender age of five he knew  nothing of restraint���������������������������at least, so far  as the imagination was concerned. He  told little John'of a wonderful airship he had built in his attic, and how  he flew away with it, when it was  completed; and John, being of a literal  and unsuspecting mind, believed it all.  Hc brought the tale to his mother,  and she. very gently, tried to show  him how impossible if was: the attic  window-was too small for any air-ship  to pass, and Henry certainly would  have been eager to show his air-ship  if ho had had one.  Finally it dawned upon John that  the whole story was "a fabrication. He  sat a minute, as if stunned, and then  said, with great emphasis:  "Mother, I don't, think Henry's mother can be very nice!"'  Sherlock Holmes, the great detective, looked critically at the cigar that  the little, thin, pale-faced man had  just given him.  "You're married, sir," he said, "and  you have a wife that is very fond of  expensive gowns, fashionable hats, and  other luxuries?" .  "Yes,   that's   indeed   true.    But "  "You have four or five daughters  that are very extravagant, and a  couple of sons that.spend just as freely."  "you astound  me.    But "  "Vou have a mortgage on your  house."  "Everything is just as you say, But  please tell me how you know all this?"  The great detective made a very wry  face and, looking as if he would suffocate, said laconically:  "The cigar."  Sore Ghest Cured  tablets, and that is that thesv tablets"  certainly do cure any kind of .tomach  trouble.

These are the opening words of the solemn declaration of  E. P. Von Haydeh, the well-known violinist. "My work kept me^out late at  night, and playing in cold, drafty pkices  brought on a severe cold that settled  on my chest.- 1 had a harsh, racking  ____������������������____- cough and severe  p a i ns d arte d  through my sides  and settled in my  shoulders.

"I - acknowledged    my    limitations,"  continued  our new Ambassador,  "and  sent the cook  to see if she could  do  better."  \ _  With the Horses  "- There" is no -better assurance of the  value of a stallion than a large number of good colts. Where possible,  see some of the horse's get before deciding to use him on your best mares.  Where the horses are not clipped,  regular cleaning before the spring's  work commences and during the season will do'much" to keep their coats  in good condition, and a good coat indicates a condition of health and fitness for the work required of them.  Where the mare is to foal before  the warm weather sets in, a good box  stall is a necessity. It is well to prepare the stall some time before the  colt is expected, and get the mare accustomed to it. Keep it scrupulously  clean and well bedded, and just prior  to foaling have all the manure and  old straw removed, and bed down with  fresh,  clean  straw.  Overfeeding the mare just previous  to and for a few days after parturition should be carefully avoided. Such  practices often cause dysontry or other  digestive troubles in the colt. It is  far more advisible- to cut the grain  ration down a little than to increase  ���������������������������it-nt���������������������������this-Pcriocl,_but_as_soon as the  colt is strong, liberal feeding can be  safely practiced.  The spring operations must be done  in as short time as possible, consequently the fast-walking horse is most  valuable. This is a good hint to  those who arc breaking colts.- A good  walker is greatly to be desired in any  class of horse, but more particularly  is this so of the draft animals. Teach  the horses to walk at a brisk gait. It  means-a-great-saving of time,-and tho  work is accomplished more quickly  and  with greater satisfaction.  It is not fair to expect the infoal  mare to do as much heavy work as  the geldings or mares not in foal. True,  the maro accustomed lo light work  and regular exercise will do considerable work and not be injured, but she  should get the lightest of the work,  such as harrowing and drilling, in preference to the more strenuous labor  of drawing the disk or cultivator.  When working beside an able mate, an  inch or two doubletree advantage can  often be given, and relieves the mare  of extra strain.  *    *    *  Thc report of the Saskatchewan  Winter Fair emphasizes once more the  growing importance of thc Canadian-  bred animal. In the Clydesdale section, as at Brandon, the Canadian-bred  horse camo in for a big share of the  honors. In other breeds, too, the horse  bred in Canada is coming to the front.  It takes time for a country like this  to build up a distinctive breed of live  stock of its own. But in cattle, sheep  and swine, as well a.s in horses, considerable progress is being made, and  every year brings new achievements  and now successes to the home-bred  animal. It takes longer, perhaps, to  build   up   a   distinctly   Canadian-bred  animal in horses than in anything else.  Before success can be attained there  must be years of patient effort in the  importation of the best blood that can  be obtainable in other countries.  And after a sufficient number of the  type suitable to the needs of the country have been secured, further painstaking and systematic effort is required to produce a distinctly suitable  type of home-bred animal. And in  this work the importer is doing as  much toward tha������������������ end as the home  breeder. He, often at considerable risk  to himself, is supplying the foundation stock from which the home-bred  animal i.s eventually produced, and is  therefore to be commended for'his enterprise. The more good horses there  are brought into tho country, the better the future for the horse industry  as a whole. The demands of the  country for horses has to be kept up  while the homo breeding process is  going on, and in this country just now  and for some years to come, this demand can only be met by bringing in  larger numbers of imported animals,  than would otherwise bc required.  There is a need for more females of  the best type before the home breeder  can accomplish all that is required of  him in keeping up the Canadian end  of the breeding game. Knowing the  need of keeping the best i'or breeding  at homo, the Scottish farmer can  hardly bc induced to part with them  for love or money.  Why Sniffle and Sneeze  With Catarrhal Gold ?  By   Breathing   the   Healing   Vapor   of  Catarrhozone You Get Relief    -.  in  Ten   Minutes  JAPANESE SWORD   MAKER  The sword making of Japan is perhaps the most curious in thc whole  world. In that country swords said  to be equal to those of Toledo or Damascus are made by a special series of  processes, but a feature of the industry is the religious ceremonial that  accompanies every process.  On the walls of thc huts in which  thc work is done are representations of  thc god of the sword makers and the  chief goddess of the Shintos. There  are also bits of paper and wisps of  straw, charms to keep away evil  spirits.. No female is allowed to enter the place, as the presence of women is supposed to be conducive, to  fhe appearanceVof demons, who would  certainly bring disaster fo tlie sword's  mission. Prayer is offered before the  work begins, and various religious  rites must be performed before any  one "of the swords can be declared to  have been well and truly made.  The last thing that takes place after the polishing.an dsharpning of the  swords is the offering of them one by  one to fhe sword god to be blessed.  The weapon is placed in front of* the  kakemona on the wall, with an offering of saki. rice and sweetmeats, after which prayer scrolls are read and  a blessing upon the work is invoked.  Wherever. the. .making, of metal  swords may have originated the chief  fame of the "industry belongs of" course  to Damascus, where - these 'weapons  have been made from time immemorial. But almost equally famous arc  tlie swords of Khorasan, which is still  thc centre ot the best Eastern work  of" the kind. The Eastern blades "are  equalled by European manufacturers,  which fact is evident when. we remember that European swords are often met'with in Asiatic hands, though  in most cases they have been remounted in Eastern style to suit the fancy  of their owners. -  The particular treatment of the steel  used for the making of Asiatic swords  has had not a little to do with the reputation of the latter, for the damascening or "watering" of choice Persian and Indian arms gives a most attractive appearance to the work. Much  the same thing was in evidence in the  manufacture of "Damascus" gun barrels until it was discovered that fluid  steel-.was preferable i'or the latter, at  There is no poisonous ingredient in  Holloway's Corn Cure, and it can be  used  without  danger  of  injury.  Every second person that you meet  seems to have a sneeze and stuffed  feeling in the forehead and nostrils. To  cure promptly, say, in half an hour,  there is nothing worth using except  Catarrhozone. You inhale its balsamic vapor, and feel as if you were  among the Norway pines. This is because Catarrhozone contains a healing  medicine, light as pine air, which is  breathed straight into the lungs and  bronchial tubes. Away goes the cold;  sneezing'' and catarrhal cough cease,  bronchial irritation stops; in short,  you are cured of catarrh by a pleasant, simple remedy, free from sedatives   and   irritants.  That Catarrhozone is a swift, certain means of destroying colds and  catarrh is proved by the following:  statement of Mr. Pulos, one of Brock-  ville's best known merchants:  "In the fall of 1903," writes Mr. Pulos, under date of. June'10th, 1910, "I  contracted a very severe cold which  developed into .Catarrh. At that time  I was Jiving in New York State and  treated with four different physicians,  who afforded me no relief. On coming  to Brockville I was advised by a friend  to try Catarrhozone. I bought the dollar outfit, and was gratified by the results. I was completely cured by Catarrhozone, and have used it since to  check a cold with unfaiiing results. It  is the grandest medicine in existence,  and I hope my testimony will be of  some use to other fellow-sufferers."  (Signed)   George  Pulos.  An ideal protection' for the chest,  lungs, nose and throat is the frequent  use of Catarrhozone.

So much variety in quality makes it impossible for those lens experienced to judge the full value that should be obtained for such grain,  1 ,. ..i..'.h- Hi-ver stood more in need of the services of the  experienced and reliable grain commission man to act for him, ln the  looking  after   selling  of   his   grain,   than he does thi sseason.  Farmers, you will therefore do well for yourselves not to 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 you all there is in it. We make liberal advarjees 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 over Western Canada for our experience in the grain trade,  reliability, careful attention to our customers' interests, and promptness  in makng settlements.  We invite farmers who have not yet employed us to write 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 Bank of Canada, and any of its branches,  also  to   the  commercial  agencies  of Bradstreets and R.

"I didn't open the sardines," said my  wife, "i'or 1 thought you might have  lunched on  the railway."  '"Lunched on the railway?" I exclaimed irritably; "on the railway they  are charging hali'-a-erown for half a  fowl, and seven and six for cooking it."  "Tea?"   said  my  wife  inquiringly.  "Tea," I told her, "is about the same;  half-a-crown for boiling water, and  half-a-crown i'or a few slices of br.ead;  butter is not extra as yet. Can a commercial traveller, who earns two  pounds a week, and is eight hours on a  journey now instead of two, afford tea,  much less dinner?"  "It is not my fault,   William;  1 got  - in a nice leg of mutton foi- you, and  eggs and-flour for a batter pudding.

"My' dear girl," I tried to speak  patiently, "there are detectives watching not only the company's coalyards,  but even thc tenders of the engines as  they wait in thc station. The very  engine-drivers are narrowly scrutinized  when they go off duty."  "It seems a pity," she said, "to starve  in the midst of plenty; if only the gas  supply had held out, 1 might have done  something."  "The gas companies,"-1 . told her  wearily, "underestimated the demand.  They had a supply-of coal-for three  years; they forgot that England would  use as much gas in three weeks as it  usually does in three years'."

I waited for liim to come up,  that-I.might inquire about the health  of his 'youngest, forHhe poor child had  been suffering a good deal from teething when I last saw him.

Neither I or the officer  could hardly believe our' eyes when  we saw Captain Wantlin, so well  known and respected for philanthropic  work, engaged in taking coal from my  coal scuttle and placing if in the capacious pockets of his jacket coat.   '7W_ell,_ I..nover.'.'-_,sald .the astounded  officer. "No doubt there i.s a temptation in these times, but to.think of him  of all people, him that is so particular,  too, caught in the very act. If it  hadn't been for your faithful dog, sir,  ho would have had every little bit of  coal you have got left; and you just  como off a journey T daresay, and your  good lady just tilled the scuttle and  about to cook you a chop."  . "Take away this dog, constable,"  shouted Captain Wantlin in a frenzy,  shaking his fist at each of the three  of us in turn, "and then take that man  in charge."  "It's you, Captain Wantlin, sir," said  thc amazed constable, "that is in peril;  and if I did my duty, finding you in the  back garden of another man's house  purloining his little bit of oeal, I should  take you in charge at once without  waiting for his information."  "It's my own coal, I tell you; this  very moment I saw him fill his scuttle  on my premises."  The constable ��������������������������� held up his hand; I  had an inward qualm, for I feared that  he might suspect me; but the reasoning  powers of the force are too strongly  developed to be taken in by mere assertion. He considered this matter  judicially for a moment, and then replied' sternly: "This gentleman, the  last gentleman in the world to steal  coal, was smoking a cigar at his gate  as I came up, and therefore <he cannot  have been a moment ago over in your  premises."  "I tell you  he was,"  cried  Captain  were very persistent, and he had great  difficulty by revolving in a circle in  fending him off with the scuttle. "This  scuttle is marked by the shot I fired.������������������  "That matter becomes very serious,"  said the constable gravely, taking out  his note-book; "it's my duty to caution you that whatever you say will  be taken down ancl may be used as  evidence against you. Do you still  assert, after my caution, that you fired  off a shot-gun, to the common danger,  and with intent to do grievous bodily  harm ?"  Captain Wantlin was visibly staggered, the events of the night were too  exciting i'or him; the rush, through his  grounds and the exertion* of scaling  the wall had subdued his naturally  virile spirit; tho determination of the  dog to proiect-. his master's property  still involved a ceaseless circular motion, and in his giddy state he was unable to think of a, sufficient reply to the  arguments of the officer of the law.  This was obvious to us both as men of  humanity, and the constable, glancing  at me, .and receiving a .slight nod of  acquiescence, went on kindly, "This  gentleman's cigar is only just smoked;  therefore for tho last quarter of an  hour at least he cannot-have been engaged in annexing coal with felonious  intent; he is willing to make allowance  for a delusion that might overtake any  of us with our minds disturbed by this  crisis of national shortage. It is beyond the bounds of my strict duty, but  I am willing to destroy this page in my  note-book and account to the sergeant  of my beat for .not meeting him at the  fixed point Jjy saying that 1 met Captain Wantlin of Grosvenor House,  Ellenborough Road,' at S.30 p.m., in a  .dazed and exhausted condition and  assisted him home." t gazed sympathetically at the constable and he  returned in a few minutes with an olive  branch in the-shape of a scuttle of coal,  that Captain Wantlin begged my acceptance of as a slight mark of appreciation of the" consideration and forbearance J had shown.- "He's not a  bad old chap," said the friendly constable in making the presentation, "and  bears no malice in his heart. I soon  brought him to see the real state of  the case, and that it was undue apprehension working on an overstrung and  anxious" mind."     **      -  "It seems, sir, from what he said,",  continued thc officer, "that .coal scuttles  have been going down" empty"over his  wall, and going up, full.just like as-if  he-kept a coal mine; not one. nor yet  twice,- but -continuous; to^ what; you  might call the" tune of  .  . Oft in the stilly night..,    ,    "  : . "It's- on his -nerves: he. sees" a coal  .scuttle in every-shadow." "��������������������������� "������������������������������������������������������.'  * The psychology of the constable  appeared to me to do him credit, and 1  begged him to pause for a moment  when ;he^t his duty "brought him past  my house,'~since by that time the mutton' chops would'be cooked, and I could  offer him the slight hospitality of a hot  meat sandwich as a smaH'acknowledg-  menf of his tact, firmness and discretion. I-Ie said that it was a fortnight  since he had. tasted roast meat, and  that he "would be sure-to be there.  After supper I argued the question  "with Maria as to whether in the stress  of a coal strike the man without coal  was truly responsible- to the moral law."  As she finished - her chop she held  firmly to the" general principle,, but  admftted that ' "circumstances alter  cases; and said that if Solon had lived  in our days, instead of saying, "Call  no man happy till he is dead," he would  have framed his aphorism, "Call no  nian=.happy-=-who=has=not=had=suflicient;  foresight to lay in a stock of coal before a strike;" At the same time she  warmly admitted that I had done my  best to remedy this lack of power to  anticipate the future. While I lay back  smoking, onco moro serenely full, I  murmured with tho epicure:  Kate cannot harm me, I have supped  today.  Though    the    pleasure    be  ours,  the  bacon's your own.  IS YOUR. SWASTIKA CORRECT .  One of the lucky charms most generally worn recently has been the  Swastika. " Superstitious wearers  would do well to examine their reproductions, of it and make sure that  they are correct in form and material,  for rSir George Birdwood, an authority  on Indian matters, has been giving  some interesting and alarming facts  concerning this ancient and mystic  symbol.  Tho right handed swastika, that is  the one whose transom or arm points  to tlio right is the symbol of the sun  and of light, of health and happiness  and other good qualities and it alone  is lucky. It should be fashioned only  of gold and colored (if enamelled on  any other metal) only red, the color  of the east, or yellow, the color of  the south.   .  The left handed swastika is the symbol of the moon and of moonlight, of  all darkness and supernatural terrors,  of all mortal diseases and 'disgraces  and other forms of ill'omen.  It should be formed only of silver  or colored, blue, green, white or black  if it is. expected to perform its work  in a thoroughly businesslike unlucky  way. ,  NEW   OUTLET  FOR  THE   RHINE  The project for a canal which will  give the Rhine an outlet on the Nortli  Sea at Emden . is taking practical  shape. The plans for the canal, which  will lie wholly within German territory, are being printed for submission to the government and the  Reichstag.  They will also be sent to all corporations  and  persons  interested.  The canal as at present projected  will' start from the Rhine at Wesel,  run toward-the Dutch frontier, and  turning* away at Leer come out event-  ually^in the River Ems. The cost is  estimated at the equivalent of $58,500,-  000. "  German shipping and the terminal  towns' will not be the only gainers  from the building of the canal. One  of .its'most beneficial results is expected to be the drainage of large  tracts of country, including the huge  Bourtahger- moor, and.their subsequent  cultivation and habitation.  9ooBrops  AVcgefablcPrcparationfor Assimilating iheToodandliegiila-  ting thaStomflcbs andBowels of,.  y  ..DUNMOWIS FELICITY RLITCH--  The ancient ceremony of the Dun-  mow Flitch, which for the last five or  six years has been allowed to lapse,  is at last fo bc revived.

They were  required to swear that neither of them,  "in a year and a day, either sleeping  or waking, repented of their marriage."  Here is the oath administered:  You  shall  sweare,  by cus'tom or confession,  If ever you made nuptial transgression.

In other words,  it must be difficult to 'set off and must  develop great, energy when it does explode.- The'first "of these requirements  bars out many of the most powerful  explosives, such as the fulminates.  Chlorid of nitrogen, generally stated  in text-books to be the most powerful  of all, is also the most dangerous���������������������������  so much so that when it is formed  -in=tho=coursc^of a=chernical=experim"entr  tho chemist does not wait to see what  is going to happen, but absents himself  at once. Progress in the use of high  explosives has been very largely an  advance in ki owledge of how to mako  some of these ticklish compounds more  difficult to explode and therefore more  safe to use industrially. Even nitroglycerin in its original liquid form  was unsafe and inconvenient to handle,  iuif1_O.L11?osLtbe__firs_tjlevolopmcnt in.the  manufacture of high explosives was to  absorb the liquid in a porous material,  tho first of which was infusorial earth.  This has now beon replaced by wood-  pulp as an absorbent, and to this are  added active chemicals which aid in  giving the greatest explosive force.  Tho next .step was the use of gun-  cotton in combination with nitroglycerin. Alfred Nobel discovered that  about one part of guncotton dissolved  in nitroglycerin produced a jelly-like  mass which had a greater explosive  force than either or both of them'un-  combined. This material is used a.s  a base of the blasting-gelatins and  gelatin dynamites which arc largely  used in Western mining- at present.  They have many advantages over the  old-fashioned straight dynamite, Jn  that they arc practically waterproof,  more dense and plastic, and aro safer  to handle.  Later it was discovered'that nitrate  of ammonia, a compound which in itself i.s not explosive, could be combined  with nitroglycerin to produce an explosive which is also safer to handle,  less sensitive to shock and friction,  and has a slower and more rending  effect than the straight nitroglycerin  dynamites. These explosives are therefore not as good to use in wet work  as either the dynamite or geltain, but  they evolve less noxious fumes than  the dynamite, and for certain classes  of work are superior to either of the  others.'   ; ���������������������������  The most recent development has  been the introduction of nitrotoluene,  which has the property of reducing the  freezing-point    of   nitroglycerin.'

But  sho would not, N_o__sadclle_sujte(T_ her,  arid sh"e"ch"ose"rather to remain master  in her own house, unwilling to submit  her will to any man. To the which  village camo a certain young man, very  fine and clever and beautiful who,  hearing much of the good widow and  her possessions, determined to set his  cap at her, and, if so it mlght'be, wed  her and make her his. So he wooed  her with right good will and gentle art,  and at last began to be pleasing in her  sight, so that she smiled when she met  him in thc market-place or at church,  or wherever it might be. Well, the  thing went so. that ho offered himself  to her and they were wedded, although  all her gossips dissuaded her and said  it would surely turn out ill.  After the wedding for the first while  he was good, obedient,, quiet, keeping  good care* of his own house, and following thc old wife from chamber to  chamber, until he had learned where  all her treasures were kept. But then  he began to go astray, lingering long  at the beer-house, drinking much, and  often bringing boon companions home  with him, to drink and roister and  make merry till the clock struck midnight.  The which the good wife remarking,  sho determined on guile, and, binding  a towel about her head,% laid her on  Ihe sofa and began mournfully to  i,rroan. Whereupon her man entering  with his boon companions asked hor  what was ill with her, and she said  that her head gave her much woe and  was full of sore pains. At that in well-  feigned anger, tearing the towol from  her head, he began to thump her en  the brow, crying: "Oh, wicked and  shameless  head,   thus  to  torment  my  Magdalen has interesting historical  associations.

Sir Richard McBride  On the occasion of the recent celebration of his birthday, Kin? George  conferred the honors of knighthood upon the usual number of public men  of Canada and the other Dominions. Among those of Canada receiving  thc great honor, were the Hon. Richard McBride ancl the Hon. Rodmond  Roblin, two of the Dominion's most prominent Conservative provincial  premiers. The conferring of these honors by the King are not empty  honors with little meaning. . They do not come by "chance." They are  made in recognition by His Majesty of valuable services rendered to the  Dominion and the Empire. It is most gratifying to citizens of this far  western province that one of our native sons should receive such distinct  recognition. It,., clearly indicates how well Premier McBride has served  his country. "Premier of his native province before he was 33," says the  Victoria Colonist, "Sir Richard adds to the attainment of that office, 'at  au age seldom approached in Canada by the head of__any government, the  reception of the honor of knighthood at an earlier period* of life than falls  to the lot of imperial statesmen as a rule. Nine years ago he became  first minister of British Columbia, and since then four general elections  have come and'gone, each one emphasizing more and" more strongly the  fact that he is giving to thc people of the province an administration of  public aflairs which meets with their approval. It has become almost a  political axiom in British Columbia that no other leader .-an hope to displace the present d'omrinant party so long as he remains in office and continues the same wise policies which have placed this portion of the Dominion in the forefront of the provinces of Confederation.  "Sir Richard is well-born, not in the hackneyed use of the phrase, but  in its best sense. His father was Mr. Arthur I-I. McBride, a Dublin  man who was one of the pioneers of the young colony, and his mother before her marriage was a Miss Mary D'Arcy;" a Limerick girl who possessed all the traditional beauty of that county of fair women, and all  the qualities of an Irishwoman. The former lived to see aim the Premier  of thc province; Mrs. McBri-le, happily," is able to see her son honored as  a leader in the empire jo whizh r.cr country has given so many ba'.iiant  sons."  Sir Richard's official title is "Knight Commander   of   the Order nf St.  Michael and St. George. '  WILL    DOUBLE-TRACK  WELCOME  JUNE RAINS  There are no rains quite so welc6me  as the June showers - that come as  sure as the daylight to boost the  cereal and hay crops, the vegetables,  field roots and fruits of the favored  Northern Okanagan. The showers of  the past week have been of inestim-  able_ value Everybody hoped for  the" showers'���������������������������particularly " the men  having extensive fields of hay ancl  grain. The Stepney Ranch had just  linished drawing thc parly hay cut to  the barns. At the big Hassard farm  the timothy and clover is two or  three feet high, and on the DeHart  farm adjoining is to bc seen the prize  alfalfa field of the district.  Thc C. P. R. is preparing to spend  sixty million dollars in double-tracking the system across the continent.  This enormous undertaking has been  made necessary as the result of the  -phcnomcnal=-incrcasc^in=-LusincssT=and-  in view of the great crops which the  prairies will produce in three years'  time.
