Foster," editor of./the  -Nelson Daily "News, and"Fred, Star-  " key,    of.Nelson,   pres den   .of     he  r Associated Boards of Trade.!  - President DeCew,- delegated   Dr.  Acres. August  Schnitter -and F. J.  Like to serve" the  refreshments  and  distribute   the   smoking - material.  He" theu " opened  the .program by  making a brief speech, in.which he  explained the objects of the board of  ,trade, which was an "essential  insti-  "flition in-advancing .the. interests ,of  , the city and in promoting  its commercial growth.    He   recounted the  immense agricultural, miueral  and  timber resources of which the  city  ��������� is  the center,  and  closed his   remarks by paying a neat compliment  - to the visitors.-  A song  by   Arnold   Carter   was  heartily encored.  . Fred Starkey was the next speaker. He gave a history of the board  of trade movement from ' its inception down to the present day. The  organization; he said, has now become world-wide, and it is important that every city should have a  live board of trade. He enumerated  alLthe public works -that had been  ��������� carried through by the government  through pressure brought to bear  upon it either by local boards or the  associated board. Thece.were many  other pnblic improvements that  should be brought to the attention of  the ��������� government. He closed by  urging those present who were not  members of the local board to join,  Mr. Ross rendered a violin solo,,  and in response to an encore played  a Highland reel,. to which R. A.  Brown furnished a spirited dance.  Sorfgs by Messrs. Donaldson and  ���������Varcoe were well received.  W. G. Foster spoke briefly, but to  the point. Rivalry between Koote-  nay and Boundary cities was a thing  of the past,: and they should^ get together and inaugurate a publicity  system to advertise the Boundary-  Koorenay'district in the east. The  completion of the Coast-Kootenay  railway would give a great, impetus  to the industrial development of  southern British Columbia. Regarding the matter of rural free delivery,  he was of tne opinion that if the  board of trade and the ranchers who  would benefit thereby went after it  vigorously they would get it.  Prof. "Ringlets" introduced his  wonderful performing mule, which  did everything but speak.  E. E. Henniger. spoke , at considerable length; .He.' recountad the  natural resources' tributary to Grand  Franklin camp, which he considered  one of the richest, if not the richest,  mining properties in"Canada.

In the other countries  this forward movement, aims to  man the foreign, non-Christian  countries with' evangelistic, educa-  ttonal and-jnedical workers. But it  is a notable fact that in the.sections  of the countries most- aggressive in  sending help to the destitute parts  of the ^world, home and foreign,  there is found a distinct- advance in  the growth and prosperity of the  home work.  The laymen seek to put into their  peculiar mission aud to link -it up  with their churches tbe same enterprise and the same aggressive;  business-like methods that successful manufacturing and commercial  concerns put into their affairs.  They claim that this is the only  way to advance successfully.  The inoieasing power and usefulness of the movement as_a factor in  the conserving of the nation and in  the uniting of the nations into one  great'biotherhood is beginning to  attract attention. .At the recent  laymen's movement convention,  J3uxton, ��������� England, .. striking- testimony was given to this feature of  the situalion from both the army  and navy officers. Lord Lemington  said: "We certair'y could-not hold  our ejnpire, together without the  help of Christian.*- missions?' Sir  Andrew Fraser, late of India, was  an enthusiastic supporter of this  .work, which he knew at first hand.  The world's big onward movements, especially of late, have received tremendous impulse from  both the laymen's movement' and  the student volunteer missionary  movement, which began twenty-five  years ago and today numbers over  ten thousand enrolled young people  in colleges and universities in this  and the old countries, and is represented already on the foreign field  by some 5880 graduates in active  service.  An anthority, Sherwood Eddy,  tells us that "it took nearly a century to win the first million Pro-  testaut Christians on the foreign  field. The second million were won  in about twelve years, and it. is taking'but six years to win the third  million. An average of nirie hundred Christians are being added  every day throughout the non-  Christian world. Today, with about  six million communicants and adherents abroad, at the present rate  of increase, we shall be adding  within a decade a million every  year to the foreign constituency."  A hundred years   ago there was  not a medical missionary and not  a  mission hospital in the whole world  and   more   than   two-thirds   of its  population was in utter ignorance of  medical science and  blessing.    To  day there are 675 mission   hospitals  and a hostof   dispensaries, treating  annually many millions of snfferers.  In the   same   time   the     mission  schools have increased from a mere  handful to nearly  thirty   thousand  mission colleges and schools.   Then  the   Bible   could   be   read in only  sixty-five languages; now it can  ba  read in over five  hundred.'tongues,  and  the whole  world is'wide open  to  the   gospel,    There   are today  more- than   twenty-four    thounand  missionaries and one  hundred -^and  twelve   thousand   native    workers,  where there weae only one  hundred  a centiuy ago.  Special .Ritualistic Services  Held Tuesday by the  Local Lodge  The special ritualistic services  which were held by Grand Forks  Lodge No. 30: of the Order of  Knights of Pythias in the Davis  hall on Tuesday evening, February  17, commemorative of the golden  jubilee of that great order, were an  unparalleled success, it being the  largest gathering of any fraternal  lodge ever held in this city. Close to  two hundred persons were present,  there being also visiting brothers  from Danville and Republic, Wash.  R. J. Gardner acied as chancellor  commander, H. A. LeRoy as vice-  chancellor, S. G. Kirk as prelate,  Walter E. Hadden as master of exchequer, and Frank J. Miller as  master at arms.  The ri'tual for this service had  been specially written for use on  this occasion throughout the whole  continent.  This was followed by the thirteenth annual roll-call, at which the  name of every member of the lodge  was read out,'"those "being away  from town having sent letters, and  many' excellent fraternal epistles  were read. One from Matt Miller,  an old-timer in this valley, was of  special interesl. Mr. Miller had  also sent to the lodge a boxful of  California rhubarb, and the same  had been made into thirty six pies,  and each and every person present  had the pleasure of eating rhubarb  pie.  One special feature of the evening  was the presentation to each and  every member of the order of a  special medal commemorative of  the occasion, and also of a K. of P.  watch fob. Refreshments and dancing wound up the evening.

As" the story goes, the inspector of  the district is in the '. ~.bi. of visiting  the barns and passing compliments on  tlie condition of tl-.e stables."  The particular man in question, during the last summer, was always certain of compliments, and his stable  left nothing to be desired in* the way  of cleanliness.

'���������  Has . Splendid Year'.' Quick Assets  Over Thirty-foiirper Cent, of  Liabilities  The Forty-Ninth Annr..'. Report of  the Unio < Ban!- of Canada approved by  the Shareholders at their annual meeting hv3ic in Winnipeg on December 17.,-  is tho best L'i the history of tho Bank.  The "net p/ofits for tlie year after  making the usual deductions: for expenses of mariagernt-nt au'l making  full provision for-- bad cine", doubtful  debts amounted to ?750,095 or $44,000  more than, was earned i:: 1912. Other  evidences of progress ere shown by a  further examiiu-t'oa of. the Bank's  statement. The note circulation  throughout the year increased frorti  $4,/00.000 to $6.������00,OGO. Deposits  gained from ?55,600;000 to ?t'4,500,OO0.  The restv...ccoimt was increased-by  $100,000, making it $3,400,000. Current Loans increased from $45,000,000  to $4G,,<00,00, while total assets show  the large gain of $11,300,000 new  standing at $80,766,532.  A- striking   feature " of   the    Bank  Statement is found in a further examination of the assets.   The Bank possesses an unusually large amount or  gold, Dominion Notes and other quickly available  assets���������these  amounting  to $27,655,000 as, compared with $22,-  790,000 for the previous year.     This  policy of maintaining a large proportion of, the  assets  in a focpi  easily  convoked into cash is a characteristic of this Eank and the present holdings of nearly twenty seven and three  quarter millions .bear a high  propor  tion of the Bank's total liability to the  public.      The  fact  that  deposits   increased du'ing the ,.-dar also calls .for  comment as during ihe past year there  were unusual demands for funds and  depositcrs were more inclined to withdraw funds    -than  to  increase  their  holdings.     The -fact that deposits increased is an indication of the increased confidence on the part of the public  in the management of the Bank.   The  "Bank on its &ide has been'doing' its  full share in catering to -the business  needs of the communities, in which its  branches are locatec.   During the year  the'current loan's'show an increase of  $1,780,000- while  loans  rnd discounts  outside of Canada amount ..o $1,640,-  000 or more than -loublo that shown  for the previous year.   The Bank has  now on  deposit in the  Central  Gold  Reserve $1.300 100 while "i .total assets have attained Ihe very large sum  of'S80.76fi.000 an incrersc ol over $11.-  C00.000 during tIk. year.

LOHOOM.IB&  Tliis parasite is a creature male and  female in one. ' It is of pear shape,  having two, four and six suckers. It  lays the egg3, ���������which aro only connected together with slime. They develop and form a body, whi-.:h is the  worm, Each point is an individual,  having a sucker or mouth. The worm  grows much longer tha^ the bowels  where it is located, and sometimes a  whole colony of them aro found,  enough to fill a quart of solid worm,  and when put in a bucket of 'water  would apparently fill it. It. is the  hardest task in the world- to destroy  this parasite without doing injury to  the individual who may be so unfortunate as to have it, as tHN parasita  from the body of the worm, and remains there to breed another. It is an  internal demon, and causes its victim  to suffer all the symptoms of disease  imaginable. The cleverest ' physicians are-led-to-believe-the patient. is_  suffering from some other disease, as  nearly every person Ijas different symptoms. Some have beefi"T:reated lor  cancer of-the Lowels, consumption of  the bowels, consumption of the lungs,  chronic dyspepsia, .nervous prostration, "melancholia hypochondria, hysteria, inflammation*of bowels, appendicitis,'and other c mplaints, when one  or more of these internal demons were  eating their lwes away.  Prof. Mulveney has made' the discovery to free the victim of this monster without injury to ie system, destroying the parasite as well as expelling the worm with one dose of medicine without any previous starvation.  Visit hi office -".irre he has 'in his  possession the most wonderful collec-  tion-of these death-dealing monsters  iir'the .world, -which have been expelled from hundreds of people by his famous remedy, s"bme bottles containing colonies of worms and anyone seeing them cannot imagine how a person  could possibly" live with them "in his  bowels. It is surprising the number  of people that have them. Thousands have them ..id are not-aware  cr the fact. The lettei and "testimonials the Professor has in his poses-  sion are enough to convince us of this  alarming fact.

The reform may be said to have for  fundamental principles: Fixed responsibility, quick action and experc  service..... It sprang out of the exigencies following the great flood at Galveston, Texas when that City was  nearly effaced and required to be rebuilt without delay. The movement  is spreading rapidly and from time to  time new improvements ar~' devised  as different cities take up with it.  Lethbridge is the first citj in Western Canada to adopt Commission Government aud professes to have excell  ed all previous efforts, in forming, a  city charter.  The Leth',/r:dge chartei provides for  three comir.i.ssione:a. The Mayor,  who is also the Commissioner pi Finance and Safety will have a salary of  $4,000. The Commissioner of Public  Works and the Commissioner of Pub-  lie Utilities will each receive salaries  of'$3,500. Each department is clearly defined and each Commissioner is  responsible for its administration.

Consequently there was mighty little chance  of my doing the Job. But.I kept my  attention fixed upon it Just as keen as  if I knew my man was within reach.  There were two main thoroughfares  lu Burtonville leading from the trolley  -he saw me    ������i jrnnt ^    Oddw hew, -        ^        ^  and listen to a statement or u.case/wq- ob(Jut a mi]<J ^^   x wa,ted to tJJ  bare on hand. -     . -      I BtUyon by one route. keeping my eye  I Joined the row in front of the  : desk, and-.lho inspector continued:  "This morning'an" old man'named  ��������� Heuncssy, who keeps a little store at  , 92 Union street, went to his place of  business at'G o'clock as usual to open  up.    He" kept no clerk,  doing everything  himself.    About  half an  hour  after he entered the store a policeman  In uniform  was seen to como out of  It.   The person who saw'tbe cop was  " on his way to Henuessy's store to buy  some coffee for breakfast.    He found  the    storekeeper    lying    dead,    shot  through the" head, before a little open  safe in which ho'kept his funds.  ���������"The. man who made the discovery  ran   out  for   a   policeman, and   met  -th.

What money had  been taken from the safe is not known,  6irice Bennessy is dead and can't tell  us how much was there. . ...   .  - - "The queries are: Who.jyas the policeman who came out of the store after  the murder? Was ho one of our force? i  If so, .was ho the murderer? Had he  adopted a policeman's uniform to enable him to escape detection? Is he  ������r has he been a policeman in another  town who has gone to the bad?  "We havo no time to~ lose, because  there is a hope that we enn get hlni;  before he can take off his uniform and  ^ut on citizen's clothes.   I think that if  /I were in his place I would try to get  " out of town as a policeman. HO would  run some risk in taking off his uniform  before doing so, since should we find  it we could work from it to its owner,  or rather to the man who.bad-worn It,:  whereas if the murderer could get beyond our bailiwick It would bo much  easier to get It off and conceal it."  That was Just like- H'arke'r.. He al-  ifcvays began a hunt for a cripiinnl by  . going over tho ground Just as if he was  the criminal himself.

The policemen  I belonging to/.tho town had been notified of the Dossible. nres'ence of the  criminal and '.were much 'better fixea  to take, him if he was there than one  | of Arlington, because they knew their  j own,men.,  I said nothing about' the  i matter to those-1 met, conlining my attention to meeting a policeman who  ' by sbme bit of nervousness would give  ��������� himself away.  I    Not-meeting any suspicious person on  i my way to tho station, I walked back .  ! by.the other thoroughfare, which was  j much less  frequented than  the first  ' Meeting a cop, I asked him what was  the hour for change of the force on  ' duty.   He told me that he was then  ' expecting every moment to bo relieved.  .,.1 continued my way back toward the  trolley stables and was walking slowly.  ; along when I saw a policeman coming.  !     Some  of   us -fellows  of  the  police-  " have a way when walking along, especially when entering upon our term of  - routine duty, of throwing our sticks  outward, drawing them  back, by the  < throng that attaches them to the wrist  and catching them.   The man coming  I toward me was doing this.    That fellow; I remarked to myself, whatever  else be is,' is a cop.    He is throwing  his "slick like a policeman and catching  It as if he had been doing the trick  all his life.  When we met I nodded to him, looking him over carefully, as I'did every  cop I passed, for anything that might  give away the man I was after. There  ��������� was nothing in his uniform, nothing  In his walk, which had the elasticity of  a man Just going on duty, contrasting  with that of one just going off duty.  But there is one telltale feature that  ���������;cannot well be covered, though I have  known many persons to do so with  marked success. I refer to the eye. It  is usually a sure indicator. It is the  feature on which one fighting for his  life keeps his own eye fixed without ���������  a moment's removal. Tho man I met  looked me in the eye. I looked him in '  tho eye and saw in it an uneasiness  thnt was in strong contrast with his  careless walk and otherwise confident  appearance.  While there was not enough in this  to wan-ant my assuming that he had  an uneasy conscience, it was sufficient  to Induce investigation.   I stopped for  a bit of chat.  '���������'Just going on?" I asked.  ."Yes," he replied.   "Are you?"  Here was a probable giveaway.    I  knew by sight every person connected  with the police department of Arlington, and this man should hare known  those of Burtonville.  "Let me see," 1 said. "I don't exactly place you. Haven't you recently  come on the;force?"      ;  He saw danger in the question, and  I saw dread in that telltale eye of his.  ,   "Not so 'very  recently.    I've  been  mostly on night duty."    ,-.  1   "That's the duty  I've been on," I  said. In order, to push  him  further.  "It's singular that 1 haven't ever seen  you at the station."  ;   "It is queer we haven't met," he half  stammered.   "But I must go on.   I'm  a bit behind time and have some distance to walk."  "I'll go with you," I said. "I'm not  ���������satisfied at seeing a man on the force  that Inever saw before. I'm going to  investigate you.".  No will power could keep the blood  in the man's face when be saw that  he was in imminent danger of being  exposed as masquerading in the Bur-  tonville.police force, to. which he did  not belong, for this would almost surely connect him with something worse.  But he pulled himself together, saying  Ihat I was Yvcleqine to luvestigatc.hiin  as much as I liked.  Ho walked beside me sullenly. I did  not Jump at n conclusion Unit he was'  my quarry, but I believed there was a  fair chance of It. At the samo time I  didn't care to place myself in n ridiculous position by making a mistake.  "How do I know." be said presently,  "that you are a member of tho force?  I've never seen you before,"  "You'll And that out," I replied,  "when we meet a policeman."  Suddenly tho man 6teppcd to the  curb nnd began to rap du it with hiB  s'ncir." a cop came nurrymg toward  us, and my companion said to him:  "I'm an Arlington policeman, after a  man who is wanted for masquerading  as a member of your force." There he  is.   Help me to run him in."  It was a desperate game to play, but  be had no other. It confirmed my belief that I had got the man I was  after, and I did' not worry as to the  result Tho Burtonville man looked us  both over, then said to me:  "I've -been ordered to look out. for  you myself.   Come along."  "Not without my accuser." I said.  ' The real criminal's eyes were* darting about for some method of escape.  He'put his hand to his hip, but took  It away.

With occultating lights tho period of illum-  'inatlon is always longer than the intervals of.darkness.  "Flashing" lights are of two sorts.  They may show a swift flash of light  at regular intervals in the darkness,  or they may give a steady light with  -frequent intervals of darkness. What  makes a.light-a "flashing" light is  that there is more dark than light,  .while with an occultating light there  is more light than dark.  The correct word for a lighthouse's  period of darkness is "eclipse."  Lights    differ    greatly    in    their'  strength.  The Gt.

The  ordinary speed was to be 12 miles  an hour. In those days," writes  J. C. Wright, "there were three  classes. The third-class coach was' little better than a cattle truck. It had  no roof and no scats. Into this the  passengers were packed and had to  stand during the whole journey, or, if  there was room, to squat on the floor,  exposed to the rain or sun and bom-  garded 'by sparks emitted from the  engine.
