They all wished the board to furnish them with reliable information  regarding the city. The a -��������� was  thoroughly discussed, and was  finally disposed of by the appointment of a committee, which was  instructed to s> p " the inquirers  with the desired informa ion.  Besides transacting a large amount  of routine business, the board decided to hold a "smoker" on February 14,' Fuller particulars of this  event will be given as soon.as" .more  definite arrngement have been ' perfected. >  AN ELOQUENT TRIBUTE  Sir Wilfrid Laurier Reviews  the Services Rendered  by Lord Strathcona  In seconding the motion to adjourn  on Wednesday in the house of commons, Sir Wilfrid Laurier paid the  following eloquent tribute to the late  Lord Strathcona, Canada's high commissioner in 'England, who died in  London on Tuesday:  Whatever might have been proposed or suggested by the government  to do honor to the memory of the  illustrious dead, whose loss we deplore, .we on this side of the house  might have heartily and willingly  agreed, believing that whatever might  be done would hardly express the deep  sense of regret which now prevails,  from one end to the other of this  land. Since Sir John A. Macdona-Id's  time, I don't know that there has  been any Canadian who on departing  this life hit's.left behind him such a  trail of sorrow as Lord Strathcona.  He is mourned by his majcesty the  king, whose personal friend he was,  by the peers of the realm in whose illustrious house he had found an honored place; by the authorities of corn-  rnerco and of finance in the commercial and financial metropolis of the  world, who had found in him an equal;  by the poor of London, to whom on  repeated occasions he was   the   iqear-  stinct of Lord Stiathcona showed him  that no force, could resist the tide or:  advancing civilization, and with char  acteristic promptness he at once took  sf-ps to make a. change, and the steps  which he took were then eminently  valuable to Canada. Ho le^lizcd that  the first need was communication between the east and the wuhb At that  time railway communication had advanced westward only to tlie Missis  sippi river-, and he organized, as we  remember, a powerful syndicate to  give communication by rail from Minnesota, at St Paul, to the Red river  and from that point by water up to the  junction of tne Red- river with the As-  siniboine at a place which lias since  become famous as the city of Winnipeg. But this was only a preliminary  step; he bent his whoie mind, and lr  gave his whole soul to .the project of  having the eastern provinces connected by rail with the provinces of the  west, and . hence the project of the  Canadian Pacific railway. It is a mat  ter of history that in the construction-  of that railway he took a most eminent part, but it is not perhaps as  well known as it ought to be that before the Canadian Pacific'railway became - an. acconiplish'ep -faot it -was  often periously near collapse, and it  was due to the splendid courage of  Lord Strathcona and his associates,  who more than once risked their all,  that at last the Cansdian Pacific railway came" into being,  We are proud to remember that he  was at one time a member of this  house, and those who had the privilege  to be his''colleagnes can testify that  his sound judgment, his moderate  views, his dignified conduct, always  commanded the respect of all sides of  the house.  ( Continued on Page 4- )  NS  Wants to Run a Line to Aspen Grove to Tap Cop-  - per Mountain  At the present session of the pro  vinci-il lcgislatura tbe Kettle Valley  railway will apply for a charter extension to run n line from Otter  Summit to Aspen Grove to tap Copper moumain Jack Bates, - of A's-  pen Grove, is now in Victoria urging the   pus-age   of   the   extension.  to pay over to the customs officials  nearly $50,000 before they can distribute it to feed the Canadian people. This is how the shipment works  out:  17,500 cases of butter, 60  lbs. per case, 1,050,U00  lbs.; Canadian duty  4c  lb ;.. ..81-2,000.00  278 carcasses of veal,  av- -  eragin? 60   lbs., 16,680  lbs.; Canadian duty  3c  lb '. ...        500.00  1250 carcasses ef mutton.  average 45 lbs., 56,250  lbs ; Canadian duty   3c  lb.'.       1,687.50  PRUNING SCHOOLS  Department of Agriculture  Will G-i^e Instrnction to  Fruit Group's  Total duty on this food .844,187.90  This   is   the   amount   taken o.ut of  the Canadian people by   the    Borden  government.

This is the amount   that   wonld  Similkameen, has conferred with  the premier, and as the Similkameen  people are disappointed in the Great  Northern railway, the inference is  that the proposed change in the Kettle Valley railway may be made,"  The British Columbia Copper company is to build a smelter at Tulla-  meen, and this will mean more ton  nage for haulage to the coast.  What attitude Premier' McBride  will adopt is not yet known, but it  is safe to predict that an enormous  pressure- will . be. brought to bear.  .Further conferences' will be held,  and in view of the fact that this  change will save the province $5000  a mile on - forty miles of road and  give mutual satisfaction to the roads,  no opposition from them may .be  expected.

There is no better indication of an  egg than its density, eggs that float  being a bad investment. All you  need to test eggs that are under suspicion is a glass of water,into which  you drop them one by one, while  you -watch closely how they behave  A fresh egg will sink when placed  in water and rest on its side; if three  weeks old it will incline slightly  with the small end down; if three  months old it will stand. on the  small end, and if older it will .float,  with the large end out of water  more or less, according to its age.  A device" embodying this principle has lately been patented. It  consists of an air chamber of aluminum on the outside of the stem of  which is a rule. The egg is placed  on a wire holder at the bottom of  the instrument and placed in water.  The depth the instrument sinks,  as shown by the rule, indicates the  density of the egg, and enables you  to tell at a glance whether it is fresh  or has been kept a long time in  storage.  .be saved to the consumer in the United States, where the new Democratic  government has taken the taxes off  food.

The department of agriculture, in  accordance with its policy of past  years, of providing means whereby  the fruit growers may receive special .  training in the more difficult  branches of their work, has decided  to hold pruning schools at a number of points during the coming  winter. The pruning schools will be  conducted along lines similar to the  packing schools'. , ..^  The department of'1 Agriculture  will provide a competent instructor  and pay his expenses. Th'������ local administration of the pruning schools  will be placed in the handsjraa' .'responsible local body, sufeE^a^ the  Farmers' Institute, the Fr'tiit Growers' association, or the' board of  trade, who will be responsible for  the - guarantee of a ttpiniuiucu of  eight pupils, but not more than  twelve, with the proper qualifica  tions, at a fee of ^each, to take ten  lessons of three hours a lesson, "the  school extending over five days.  Where the number of pupils in a  district justifies, two pruning schools"  may be arranged for, in which the*  minimum guarantee will be sixteen  pupils, and not more than twenty-  four.  Tbe local organization will also  provide an orchard or orchards,  where the instructor may hold the  pruning classes, and a hall or room  in which the lectures may   be held.  Besides the actual practice in the  orchard, of which the course will  consist chiefly, where the pupils  prune trees under the supervision of  the instructor, there will be lectures  on the following subjects:  1. The theory of pruning.  2. Formation of fruit buds.  3. Pruning as related to plant  growth.  4. Top-graftiug undesirable varieties.  . 5   First aid to injured trees. -  The pupils will provide their own  pruning tools, the necessary tools  being a pair of pruning shears, a  saw, and a pocket whetstone. A  pruning pole and a light ladder  may also be necessary for large  trees.  The department expects that the  instrnctor will be met on his arrival  by some responsible person, who  can provide him with all the necessary information, so as to get the  school under way without loss of  time.  It hardly seems necessary to present to you the important advantages to be gainad from a pruning  school. Pruning is one of the important operations in the production of first-class fruit, and one on  which tbe orchardist can not have  too much Information.  Wm. E. Scott,  Deputy Minister.  A. Baumgartner returned to Nelson yesterday after a few days' visit  in tne city.  Plenty of common sense is so rare  that we have a sort of uncanny feeling when we run against it.

Optimists are right, provided they  are not unreasoning ana excessive,  said a fusion leader at a fusion luncheon In New York.  The optimism of our opponents, lie  went on, reminds me of Smith. A  . druggist said to Smith one night at  tho lodge:  There's a movement on foot to make  drugs cheaper.  Good! said Smith. Good! That will  bring sickness within the reach of  all!  George, the sexton's son, was recounting the .prowess of his grandfather to Herbert, the rector's son,  who was properly impressed and asked:  Your grandfather on your father's  or mother's side?  Oh, ho sticks up for both of 'em,  said George.  He was a member of the Peach society, and he carii'e across two-youths  in a'Dublin back street fighting. Accordingly he pushed -through tho  crowd and persuaded the combatants  to desist.  Let me beg of you, my good fellows,  to settle you: dispute by arbitration.  Each of you choose half a dozen  friends to arbitrate.  Hurrah! yelled the crow!. Do as  the gentleman says, boys.  Having seen the arbitrators selected to tho satisfaction of both sides,  the man of peach went on his way, rejoicing in the thought of hr..-ing oiice  again prevailed upon brute force to  yield to peaceful argument. Half an  hour later he returned that way and  was horrified to find the whole street  fighting, while in the distance police  whistles ciuld be heard blowing and  police rushing to the spot from all  quarters.

Looks  A discussion as to the personal appearance of Emily Bronte reveals the  remarkable fact that no one knows  anything about it since there-is no authentic portrait in existence. , When  Charlotte Bronte first saw George  Henry Lowes sho said lhat .'he was  wonderfully like her sister Emily, but  this is unfortunate for Emily since  Lewes was very ��������� much like a baboon.  Possibly the comparison was due to a  sisterly candor that.so seldom errs on  tho side of mercy. Thanks to photography, tho historian of the future  will not be in doubt as to the appearance of celebrities of the present generation, but ho is likely'to have his  own opinion as to those worth knowing about.

Well, now, was tlie  reply, you come to hear me preach  every Sunday and you say you believe  what I read out of the Bible is true.  Now, if I could prove to you, from the  Bible, that you ought to go walking  with me, would you go? Yes, of  course, rakl Mr. Twain; but it isn't  there.

An actor without funds managed in  some way to get a second-class ticket  on a line of steamers running between  Seattle and  San  Francisco.  The voyage between these two  points consumed the better part of  three days and in view of the fact  that his finances were at a low ebb,  It- 1-gured it out this-way: The first  day out ho slept all day to keep from  sleeping.. Tho second day he took  physical  culture  exercises.  On the third day ho could sfaud the  strain no longer and he went down to  the dining room and ordered the best  meal the boat could afford. While  tucking it under his belt he conjured  up in his mind's eye a picture of a  cell in the bastile in San Francisco.  After finishing his meal he said to  the waiter: How much do I owe,you?  Nothing, replied the writer, your  meals are included in your ticket.  The Bridal Veil  The bridal veil is evidently of eastern origin, being a relic of the  bridal canopy held ver the heads of  the bride and bridegroom. Among the  Anglo-Saxons a similar custom existed, but if the bride was a widow it  was dispensed with. According to  Saruiii usage, a fine linen cloth was  laid upon the head, of the bride and  brideg'-oom and was-not removed until the benediction had been said.  The old British custom was lo use nature's veil unadorned���������tha* is, ������the  long hair of the bride, which was so  worn- by all brides, royal, noble and  simple. Only then did every one behold tiie tresses of maidenhood in  their entirety and for the last lime, as  after marriage they were neatly dressed on the head. Among some the  tresses were cut and carefi .y stowed  away on a woman becoming a wife.  It was customary in Russia for village  brides to shear "i'leir i^cks on returning from church.  Corns cripple Uio feet    and    make  diking a torture,  yet sure relief in  the shape of Holloway's Corn Cure is  within reach of all.  Origin of the Dead Letter Office  '* What was the reason for our office  getting its name of tho dead letter office, as it is often called? said an. official in the returned letter office. ^Voll,  it was originally started in order to  return to ^.he senders all letters, etc.,  addressed to people who turned out lo  bo dead. The need for such an arrangement became evident from, the  number of valuable inclosures contained In such missives, and that the old  tradition still lingers in the department is evident from the. fact that the  bags containing returned letters are  black in. color.  Yes, there are people who imagine  us to be mysteriously connected with  death itself,, aud some time back wo  received .a peculiar letter from one  of them. Within a week of having a  letter returned lo her a certain person  living in the same house had died, and  consequently the writer, evidently associating her friend's, death directly  with us. begged us in future never to  send back letters again, but to burn  them instead.

FAKED CRAIN GRADES  YIELD HUGE PROFITS  Figures Relating to Minnesota Elevators Show  rtos. Three and  Four  Sold as No. One ���������  Minneapolis, Minn���������The terminal  elevators, in Minnesota gained more  than five million bushelc of No. one  Northern-wheat as a result of mixing  the wheat of lower grades during the  crop year ending August 31- 1913, according to figures just ��������� made public  by the state railroad and warenouso  com. asslon. .  ���������Practically all of the inferior gracl:.j  lost in amoun. in the elevators as a  result of the' gain made, in the No.  one Northern. During the year the  elevators received ">7,566,'059 bushel's,  of No. One Northern. Theso samo elevators shipped out 17,S6G,598 bushels,  and on Sept. 1 still ''had on hand 5,-  .,06,218 bushels. The total'number of  bushel3 of No. one. Northern. ,thc  elevators had and shipped out  23,172,816. .The tot. ' average amounted to 5,606,757.  The grain was purchase-! from the  farmers on the grades, that -it went  into tho elevators and war, naturally  sold for the grade th-1 it came out  The profit to tlie terminal olcvarost  during the past year was enormous  according to those interested in the  grain business.  Much of the number two Northern  that came in during the last crop  year went to swell the No. 1 Northern  in the elevators. While there were  11,148,039 bushels received only 7,622,-  650 bushels were shipped, out, and  therj was on hand on Aug. 31, 2,-  091,1,21.' Hero then there was a  shortage of 2,091,021 bushels.' This  amount had been raised to No. 1  Northern.  The same story 1? told in the case  of No. three Northern'. The total  amount received by the elevators was  3,288,412 bushels. By Aug. 31, a total of-3,024,904 bushels had been shipped out and ihero was an hand 52,-  752 bushels. The shortage hero was  210,756 bushels, all of which had gone  to make up the higher grades.  With No. four Northern the same  proposition is clear. The- amount received was 15,246 and tho amount  shipped out was only 3,5r5. Therj  was'none on hand Aug. CI. The shortage in this grade was' 11,723.  No Grade Shortage  In the No Grade classification the  shortage is larger than in any other.  The 'otal amount, or No Grado wheat  received was 4,212,150. TIi3 amount  shipped out was 1,210,295,. and the'  amount on hand 282,95-1. The shortage was 2,718,901 bushelc.  - There was an average in the rejected class of 3:1,522 bushels. The  amount received was S8G,185, and the  amount shipped out was 912,831, and  .the'.--amount rn hand was 104,876.  Much of the surplus h.re came from  the No Grade wheat, according to inspectors in the service of the Railroad anl Warehouse commission.  . With the publication of the figures  on mixing for the crop year that has  just ended; Minnesota and Dakota  farmers are again beginning to.wonder just ..what..they havo gained by  the mixing right which-the elevators  possess. ;; ''       ���������-:; '., v  The figures only cover the publi  terminal elevators. There > are hundreds of private elevator that do  oven more mixing than the public  elevators. If the figures for all of  the elevators in Minnesota that mix  could be obtained, representatives-of  the Railroads and Warehouse commissioners say,' the results would be  much more evident .  .'. Farmers Were Anxious  Farmers who were interested in the  legislative investigations into the  grain situation last, winter have beep  anxiously' awaiting; the publication ol  the results of mixing for the past crop  year.. ���������  ���������  The crop was oue of ' the largest  ever ��������� harvested in tho northwest.  Much of the wheat was of a high  grade.  Representatives A. F. Teighen, of  Chippewa county, and CM. Bendi.c-  on and. others, are consid9,;ng so'mo  sort of legislation that will give the  farmer more of a share of the result  of the mixing. Representative Bend-  ixon has been quoted as saying he  did not believe that the farmers were  getting their full share of the enormous profit.  The farmers are paid for the wheat  at the grade it goes into the elevators,  ho said, when tho question was  brought up. Tiie elevator men are  the only ones who gain by the right  to mix." There ought to bo some legislation that will give the farmers  some benefit from the privilege that  is now. permitted the elevator men.  Congressman James A. Menahan,  just before leaving for Washington,  voiced the same Sentiments. Ho has  been considering for some time the  feasibility of making some change iu  tho laws governing tho mixing of  grain.  HOW TO CURE  HORSE DISTEMPE  An   Experienced   Horseman   Solemnly  Declares Nothing is so Satisfactory as Nerviline  Says. Nerviline Is Fine   Liniment  "After fifty ��������� oars' experience in  raising horses I can safol'y testify that  no remedy gives such good results for  an all-round stable liniment as Nerviline." Thus opoii- the very earnest  letter of J. J. Evanston, who lives  near Wellington. "I bad a very valuable horse that look distemper a  month ago, and was afraid I was going to lose him. His throat swelled  and hard lumps developed. His nostrils ran and ho had a terrible cough.  I tried different remedies, but was unable to relievo my horse of his pain  and suffering till I startedio use Nerviline. I mixed a bottle of Nerviline  and sweet oil and i^JlsfceG the mixture  on tho throat and finest three times  a day, and you would scarcely believe  the way that horse picked up. Nerviline cured him. I also have used  Nerviline for colic in horses and cows,  and earnestly recommend it to every  man that is raising stock."   '  For strains, sprains, swellings, colic, distemper, coughs,- and.colrJB, no  'liniment will prove so efficacious in the  stable as "Nerviline"���������it's good for  man t beast, for internal or exteriwS'j  use.

The Birthright g$ Every Girl With  Rich, Red Bleed  The sad eye that goes with blood-  lessness is a sure sign of misery and  weakness. Anaemic���������that is bloodless  ���������girls and Avomen have dull heavy  eyes with dark lines underneath. The  eyelid is pulled down, looks pale and  bloodshot inside. This is not all. Anaemia works, havoc all through the system; girls grow, painfully weak and  irritable; they arc breathless and incapable of much exertion, while older  women who aro anaemic complain of  being "never realty well."  There is only one Avay to brighter,  better health for palo, pining girls and  women. That way is to invigorate  tho bodv with new blood���������the rich,  healthy "blood that imparts strength,  cleanses the system of all impurities,  and restores the bright eyes and red  lips of perfect health. Thousands of  girls and women know that Dr. Williams Pink Pills for Pale People make  this neAV, rich, red blood, and so restore health anrt strength more surely  than any other medicine known.  There Avould not be an anaemic woman or girl in the land if those suffer-  in"' from this condition would give Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills a fair trial. That  is why so many recommend these pills  to their suffering sisters. Mrs. R. B.  Keith, SteeVes Settlement, N.B., says:  ���������"At the ago of 13 my daughter Sadie began to complain of constant headaches, and did not have her usual  good appetite. I went to a doctor  and got some medicine, but it did not  help her, and finally she had to discontinue going to. school. She seemed  to be growing -weaker every day and  wanted to lie down all the time, and  would continually complain of being  tired. Tho doctor -ave her another  bottle of medicine, but with no better  results. There Avas not a bit of color  in her face or lips, and I was afrrl  she was going into a decline. A friend  who was in to see her said "K she'was  my child I Avould try Dr. Williams'  Pink'- Pills." and I decided I would  take the advice. In a couple of Aveeks  we could see a difference, as her eyes  looked brighter, anC she would try  to eat a little. When she began the  pills she could not dress herself alone,  but little by little her strength came  back until she could go for a walk.  She continued the\ use of the Pills  several months Avith the result that  she was again strong and active. This  was over two years ago, and she has  been a strong, healthy girl ever since.  We have since used the pills for other  purposes and find the-' a good family  medicine."

Even in midsummer the tempera'tur ��������� during a  snoAV buran frequently falls to 14 degrees F., while in one winter it' dropped to 4l. degrees below zero at the  end of January. The buran comes  with startling suddenness, the atmosphere growing dark Avith Avhirling  snowflakes where scarcely a minute  before the sky w^as perfectly clear.  Every'careful and ohj rvsn't mother  knows 'when' her child suffers from  worms. She also knows that if some  remedy be not speedily applied much  harm will result to the infant. The  best application that can be got is  Miller's Worm /Powders. They drivo  worms from the system and set up  stimulating and soothing effects, so  ���������that the child's progress thereafter ia  painless and satisfying.  The Magnet  Magnet is derived from the name of  the city of Magnesia, in Asia Minor,  where "tlie properties of the lodescono  aro said to havo been discovered.

Everyone knows that his private  ' life was^on a par With his public life.  .-He was a model husband, a good  ��������� father and a true friend.  It was his privilege to attain a very  "' great age, ar.d perhaps it Avas still a  greater privilege to him to have realized, if he lie cared indeed .to realize  it, that as he advanced in years he  grew more and more iu the respect,  anmiiation and affection of his coun  tryrnen. His, on the whole, was a  fortunate life,and it must be told that  whatever he acquired of wealth, or  reputation, of fame and of public esteem, he fairly won and fairly deserved.

Trees r.nd the Soil  ' The soil is a resourco 'of priceless  value. Its formation oh rocks is exceedingly 'slow. According to Professor J. Bowman, many glacial scratches that were made on rock.-during the  last glacial period, between 60,000 and  75,000 years ago, are still fresh as if  they had been made only yesterday.  Yet sinco the glaciers thus recorded  themselves man has come up from the  cave and the stone hammer. Seventy  'thousand years is a very short time  for tho development of a soil cover.

Presence, of Mind  Colonel Cody  (Buffalo    Bill)    once  told the following story of one of his  comrades of the plains known as Wild  Pall:  A man who nursed a grudge against  Wild Bill "swore to kill him. He  stood concealed in a doorway, stepped  out and confronted Bill as ihe latter  passed and leveled a pistol at his head.  I've got you now, Wild Bill, he said,  and I'm going to kill you, but I will  give you ono minute to pray!  Well, said Bill with an easy smile,  it does look like the jig's up!  Suddenly Bill peered, over the man's  shoulder and waved a deprecatory  hand.  Don't hit him, Andy! he said.  Tho man ��������� wheeled" to protect himself from the supposed enemy in his  rear. He gazed intc empty space.  There was no Andy nor any one else  behind him, and before ho could turn  round again Wild Bill had killed him.  Shoes and Nerves  Travelers say that the reason why  nervous people don't exist in China  is because it is there fcL 0 custom to  wear soft shoes. There is no doubt  that hard soled, creaking footgear is  responsible for much nervous wear  and tear as well as much physical fatigue in western lands. Tired feet  and tired nerves will mid solace in a  warm foot bath with a mndful o-f  sea salt in it. Move the feet about,  or keep them still as best pleases you  as long as- the water is pleasantly  warm; then dry them with a rough  towel and put on a fresh pair of stockings.  Didn't Wait fcr Thank You  John Bull, the scene painter, tells a  story of an occasion when he delivered some scenery for an entertainment  in a lunatic asylum. He was watching  his men getting the stuff in when it  was beginning to rain. A big  man with a pleasant smile appeared  and offered to help. They got on  famously. Mr. Bull and his volunteer  were just setting down the' last load  when an attendant arrived, caught the  big man a tremendous blow on the  side of the head and sent him sprawling on his back. Mr. Bull was  speechless with indignation at this attack, but the victim got up, smiling*  moro than ever, and walked away.  You can thank your stars I've been  watching you, the "attendant explained. I suppose when you had the last  lot in you'd' have said 'Thank you.'  Well, that's, this fellow's trouble, sir.  ite moment you say 'Thank you' to  him he'll wring your neck.  Tt may be only a scratch or cut 'to  begin with, but the.deadly germs get  into it and soon you aro a- victim of  blood-poisoning. You say you caught  cold in the wound aud it festered.  Now it is red and fiery, and threatens  carious troub'..  You can never estimate what it is  worth to have Dr. Chase's Ointment  at hand all'the time to apply in just  such cases of emergency. The most  important thing this ointment does is  to prevent blood-poisoning. It depresses the nerves, contracts the small  arteries and veins, and stops -bleeding.  By its antiseptic influence it keeps  out the poisonous gerihs and' heals up  the wound.  Dr. Chase's Iintment quickly soothe;  itching and burning, and _ecm&to heal  more quickly than anything that has  been discovered. As a cure for eczema it has never been rivalled, and  what more severe test could you apply? To try Dr. Chase's Ointment is  toprove its unusual merit and to keep  it always at hand for instant use.  A youngster was much depressed  by loneliness. His own brother had!  gone away for a week, and the lad  across the street, with whom he played occasionally, was ill in bed. Moreover, there were- no toys' that he  found amusing.  In this sad state his mother found  him. Perhaps, she suggested, I can  play with yoy. What is.it you wish-  to Play, Indians?  No, mam, sighed the boy. I wish I  was two little dogs, so I could play  together.  Placing the Goat  An anecdote of President Hayes is  told by an Englishman who formed  one of a party of his compatriots  while tho president and his family  were at Clark's ranch, near Yosemite.  The two parties were assembled in the  rude kitchen awaiting the coming  meal. A certain stiffness prevailed  at first.. At h st a master of ceremonies and introducer appeared in the  shape of a small and elegant quadruped, evidently a family pet, which  trotted into tho kitchen to be caressed. A lady of the English party gently stroked its stem, tiie president Its  stern. Presently they met, about  tho center of tho animal, and tho interchange of a few remarks became  inevitable. This is a very pretty goat,  from tlie English lady. My end is antelope, madam, from the president. It  need scarcely.be said that both ends  were antelope, but the reply was very  neat.

The Brave Butterfly  Hero is an unorthodox story of King  Solomon: One day a butterfly sat on  the king's temple and boasted to his  wife: If I chose I could lift my wing  and shiver this building to the ground,  he swaggered, Solomon, overhearing, sent for the boaster. How dare  vou? he thundered. The butterfly  groveled. I did it to impress my  wife, he pleaded. The great monarch was Instantly appeased and let  him go. Wha'c did Solomon say to  you? gasped a .quivering wife five minutes later. Oh, he begged me not to  do it, said the butterfly airily.

"No, but I've heard toll that since the  landslide.there ain't-footing there for  man or beast."  , ."No. more, there ain't," returned Jink,  buttering his ninth hot biscuit. "That's  .why I- reckoned you was dreaming  ���������when you said you --aw a "girl and  pony disappear down-the trail."  "It was bright moonlight and I saw  her plain as day," returned Harnp, undisturbed  by  Jink's skepticism. ��������� "Be-  ��������� sides, I went back to tho store and  asked Dan Cos who she was."  "And who is she?" demanded a dozen  eager voices.  "Dan said ho didn't know; said she  never asked for mail, and that, although she bought plenty of supplies  from him. he didu't know' any more  about her than ho did at first. Been  around these- parts about four wjk's,'  Dan says."  Harhp Tetlow might have continued  to discourse upon his chance, eneountci  with tho strange girl, but his companions were moro interested in discussing tho approaching roundup than listening to him.

Ono man among those at the tabh  listened to Hamp's story, and because  he was new to the country Bob Deer-  Ing asked questions about Zigzag  trail.  Jink Prole answered the questions  readily and went so far us to toll the  newcomer that somewhere along tbe  abandoned trail was the tumbledown  cottage of a sheep herder, who had  left the country at the time when cattle had crowded the sheep from tho  ranges.  Tho next day Bob Deering was sent  in search of a lost steer.  His' search led him down the west  bank of Red Spider creek, and eventually he came to the point where there  welu traces of an old trail that zig-  Kagged down the canyon and disappeared in a heap of broken rocks and  earth.  "Zlgzng trail!" ho exclaimed, bending down to examine tho grass grown  way.  His ten years of cattle ranching sinco  college days had made the signs of  earth and sky ns an open book to him.  For tho trained eye there wns much  to bo read in tbe old trail.  "Tho lost critter went this way."  Inused Bob. "and tho girl goes this wny  too. Why?

"I scent a mystery, and, as <luty calls  me to hunt for the stray critter, here  goes!"  Bob -Deering-lef t his horse and. scrambled along the trail lhat zigzagged  among the rocks in the most puzzling  manner. So intricate were its windings that Bob presently found himself  scrambling on to the main trail again  and staring his horse in the'face.  '���������'Daniel, if you laugh at mo I'll sell  ?ou to a soap factory:" panted Bob as  Daniel resumed his nipping of tho way-'  I tide jrniss.   "I've certainly trot lo.jret  oh to the right trail 15 it takes me all  ilny.   I missed a turn somewhere."  Bob turned abouS r.n'd once more  scrambled along tho trail. At an egg'  Bhiipcd rock he paused and studied tho  ground, and then, plunging through a  thicket of mosquito, he found himself  on a well-worn trail that circled the  shoulder of the hill arid gradually led  upward.  Occasionally he stooped to study the  ground, and each pause only strengthened his belief that he was on the right  t trail of the lost steer.  '    "Hands up!" came a sharp voice, and  .'.Instinctively'Bob|s'handswent over his  head with quick discretion.  When ,ho could discover the source ���������  ':��������� of the unexpected holdup on Zigzag  trail Bob found himself confronting a,  beautiful dark-eyed young woman, who-  leveled   a   pistol at ,him   with   each  steady hand.  She ;was"the most beautiful creature  he had ever seen; Bob was sure of  that���������.iet_ black hair waving about  shell pink cars, creamy skin, a pair of  .wonderful eyes, sometimes black; occasionally almost green. Sho -wore a  riding skirt of khaki and a white shirt  waist. Her head was bare.  " "Well." asked Bob pleasantly, "is it  my money or my life?"  The girl laughed nervously, and then  tears filled her eyes. '  "It's neither one; if you will only go  away." sho answered in a pleading  tone.  ''Of course, if you wish it. only I am  looking for a stray steer. Perhaps you  havo seen such 'a one. It has the  twin star .brand"���������  Ho stopped short, for the girl's face,  had turned scarlet and then white. The  hands that held the guns wavered.  "I've seen it." sho said at last in a  rather shaky voice.  "Whero is it?" ho asked quickly.      '  The girl's face went very white, .and  she leaned against a tree for support.  the pistols hanging limply from her  hands. t  "Ifs-dead!" sho'said at last. "  "Dead?" lm echoed, puzzled by her  agitation.  t'Wo killed it. We needed it for  food. I suppose wo will bang for it,"  she said, with a desperate attempt at  calmness, although Bob could sou that  she was panic stricken.  He satdown ou a stone and clasped  his sun browned h rids around his  knee. His broad hat ��������� lay on tbe  ground, and the wind ruffled his crisp,  fair hair.  "1 hopo you will pardon me. I'm  not a bit curious, I iit I can see that  you are iu trouble of some sort. This  is a lonesome country to be in when  old man Trouble hikes along, so perhaps I can help you out. Yon may  place perfect confidence in me."  Tho girl studied his face with her  wonderful, changing eyes. Then, with  a little catch of the breath, she said:  "If I tell you you must never betray,  my .confidence."  "You may trust me,'' said Bob. i  Tho girl drew a sharp breath. '  "My father lies bidden in the hut  yonuer. Ho is a fugitive from justice.  He killed a man.   I came with him!"  Bob smothered an exclamation.  "What can I do to help you?" ha  asked quickly.  "Keep every one away and help me  to get some supplies.

After supper lhat night he rode over  to Red Spider postofliee and astonished Dan Cox by purchasing a larjre  quantity of supplies, including some  fine cignrs and a number of magazines  and newspapers.   ,  Bob read-lho papers while ho waited  for his packages, and when be finally  turned into the trail along iho creek  his face was a study of mingled pleasure and regret.  The trip along Zigzag trail in the  moonlight, with his supplies for the  needy strangers, was no easy matter,  and Bob was quite breathless when he  reached the sheep herder's tint.  "Good news, Miss Groyson." ho said  after ho had received her thanks aud  those of her aged, careworn father.  "Good news for us?" she asked ia������  credulously.  5S  V?

After nearly two-thirds of a century devoted to the cause of education in Ontario and Quebec, one of  Canada's oldest educationists���������-in all  probability the. very oldest both in  age and years of active service���������has  announced his retirement_������rom. public life in the person of Dr. S. B. Rob-  Ins, who has passed the four-score  mark, and first taught near Cobourg,  Ont, in 18'48. For about half a century Dr. Robins had been associated  with the development of Normal  schools in Montreal, until theNormal  school of which he was head ceased  to have a separate existence in 1907.  For more than a third of a century  the venerable doyen of his profession  was a member of the Protestant Committee of Public Instruction, a position from which he publicly announced his resignation a few days ago,  giving for his reason "advanced age."  In a conversation with Dr. Robins  a few days ago, he talked for nearly  two hours most interestingly of educational development in Ontario and  Quebec, including reminiscences of  pre-Conf ederation days in Toronto.  His first teaching positioa was'in'a  rural school, on the fourth line of  Durumer, in what was then called  Western Canada. He was then still  in his teens, and soon moved to a  country school house near Cobourg.  It was while teaching near there that  ho became acquainted with the famous Canadian educationist, Dr. Eger-  ton Ryerson, "with whom thereafter  his life was to be more or less intimately associated.  Dr. Robins has many keen recollections of events and incidents which  have passed into history, including  ihc'fights of pre-Confederalion days,  the riots during the Barney Devlin-  D'Arcy McGee election, tho burning  of the Douglas planing mill in 1858,  because of hatred for the head of the  company, who had converted his servant girl from Catholicism to Protestantism, and other exciting occurrences.  Though drawing on apace towards  the century mark. Dr. Robins is still  strong and vigorous, walks upright,  and can read small print easily. His  conversation is almost that'of a purist  and his memory really wonderful in  its wealth of det-r.il.  He. made, early in life, two resolutions, which he lias kept.  These are:  "Never to seek wealth."  "Never to seek political preferment."  He attributes his enjoyment of a  life replete with action to his adherence to these two principles.  He has just broken ono life-long  | principle���������never to seek newspaper  | publicity. But now, on his retirement,  .' he agreed to breal' this. He says he  thinks he's old enough now to do this  without anyone saying that ho has-  : any ulterior end in view. .  j At his home, 9 4 St. Matthew street,  Montreal, with an unmarried daughter, Dr. Kobins lives quietly, in peace  and seclusion. He spendr his leisure  reading and solving abstruse mathematical problems, as, when he specialized in this department of knowledge a few decades ago, he had a  reputation as a mathematician which  was international. The study of  prime numbers is his latest hobby.  Few men continue their studies as  oclagenarians, but Dr. Robins' thousands of friends in Montreal, Toronto,  aud other parts of Canada, including  all avIio have passed under his tutelage, wish him many more years of  happiness and usefulness.  The greatest long-distance power  transmission in Southern Asia is in j  the native State of Mysoro, power being transmitted from the Cav.-  very Falls to the Kolar gold fields,  ninety-two miles away, and to tho  cities of Mysore and Bangalore, about  forty and eighty-six miles a*- ay, respectively, for electric lighting and  ' Dower nuruosfts.  Che   Laughing  Khilosopher    Dearly  Loved a Joke.  "Labby" was never taken serious*  ly as a politician, but the world en-j  Joyed him as a. jester, and that the  world was right In its estimate of  him is proved by "The Life of Henry  Labouchere," by his nephew, Mr. Algal' -Labouchere Thorold, which have  just been published. He svffered  two great disappointments in the  course of his political career���������Mr.  Gladstone failed to include him in  the 1892 Ministry, and Lord Roso-  bery refused to, make him ambassador at Washington. We cannot wonder at either decision; but we can  admire the philosophic vein in which  "Labby" accepted defeat. "It should  never be forgotten," says his biographer, "that Henry .Labouchere,  was, in fact, a Frenchman. French  by birth, he remained, to the day of  his death, French in his method of  formation of opinion, in his outlook  on life, in the peculiar quality of his  wit. It was this that enabled, or  rather obliged, him to take that  curiously detached view of English  ideals which was at times so disconcerting even to those who thought  that theyt-understood him."  Here is his career in a nutshell:  Sent down from Cambridge.  Visited tho principal gambling  places of Europe.  Wandered   for   six -months    with  Red Indians in the Wild West.  "Wore pink tights in a circus, bev.,  Ing in love with a lady performer.  Had many more adventures.  Spent ten years in the diplomatic.  service.  Founded  "Truth."  Entered Parliament and became  chief Radical wirepuller.  Writing to a friend with regard  to his appointment- a3 secretary of  Legation to the Republic of Panama, he said:���������"I had never heard of  this Republic *. .*, * so I remained  comfortably in Italy and drew my  salary like a bishop." After twelve  months urgent messages reached  him asking why he had not proceeded to his post. He replied: "I  have spent twelve months in dill���������j  gent inquiries respecting the whereabouts of tho Republic of Panama,  hitherto without success. If your  .lordship will inform me where it ia  I need hardly say I will hasten  there."  His drolleries were innumerable;  he was rarely in a serious ���������j'd'.for  long. At his house in Olu Palace  Yard he kept a playbill of an American circus in which he figured (when  he was attache at Washington) as  "Bounding Buck of Babylon," a  jumper. There was a lady in the  troupe, of course. "I wore pink  tights." "Labby" related, "with a  fillet round my head. My adorable  one said I looked a aear." As an  attache at Stockholm" he went lo  convey Queen Victoria's congratulations and inquiries on 11.e birth of  a royal baby. The sole an gentleman who received him j plied that  "His Royal Highness is uffering a  little internally, and it s thought  that this is due to the j Ilk of the  wet nurse having been slightly sour  yesterday evening." Laboucber.e  telegraphed this to the Foreign Oflice.  How young "Labby" concealed a  piece of Iruaniry by denying his  identity to his t vn father in Loudon and slipping back to Cambridge  in time to a ticipate parental suspicions is well known.' The boy who  tricked his parent was the man in  afte years who could play the wit  upon his father's memory. The  identities oE his father and ���������.uncle,  Lord Taun+OD, were confused one  day by a gentleman lo whom Henry  was introduced for the first time.  "The stranger opened the conversation by remarking, 'I have just  heard your father make a remarkable speech in the House of Lords.'  'The House of Lords!' replied Mr.  Labouchere, assuming an air of intense interest, 'well, I always have  w.ondcred wiiere my father went to  when he died.' "  .FATHER OF BOURASSA  Lie Was Wo Scot.  On one occasion Sir Henry Camp-  hell-, annorman and Taylor, the golf  champion, were at Biarritz together.  A Scotch relative of Sir Henry's earnestly contended that Taylor was of  Scotch birth, a claim which Sir Henry  was inclined to support. One of the  guests then intervened: "Well, all I  know about. Taylor is that he is a  very nice man; ray golf club engaged  hirn to play an exhibition match at a  fixed fe"o. Taylor duly came, but the  weather was so wet that no golf could  bo played, and when we offered him  payment he refused firmly, only taking his bare traveling expenses."-  Whereupon Sir Henry turned to a  compatriot and said, "I'm afraid such  a fact is quite fatal to our contention!"

But to the select little world of art  ' and literature in the Province of Quebec, the patriarchal old man of let-  tors, upon whose face is written nobleness of character and loftiness of  thought, holds a. larger share of rc-  Bpect and affection than is even claimed by. his brilliant offspring from the  most devoted of bis followers.  ���������Napoleon- Bouiassa epitomizes the'  highest type of the cultured-French-  Canadian of the old school.

When a very 'young man he courted  and won the hand of the youngest  and most talented daughter of that  fs rnous French-Canadian reformer,  Papirieau. She died in 1869, after  twelve years of a happily married  life, and Bourassa, still a young man,  threw himself heart and soul into  painting. He studied for some time  Tinder the late Thcophille Hamel, at  Quebec and Toronto, and was later  for three years at Florence and  Rome. During this time he was much  with Overleck, the German religious  painter, and followed his methods  closely. In 1880. he was chosen by  :the Marquis of Lome as a member of  the newly-established Royal Academy  of Arts, and served as its vice-president. .  o The church of Notre Dame le  Lourdes, Montreal, is an example of  his powers as architect, painter and  decorator, and even in recent year.^  he has designed many fine churche.;  in Canada and the United States.  Mr.' Bourassa is not unknown to  French-Canadian literature, and is  the author of "Jaques et Marie," an  historical romance relating to the departure of the unhappy Acadians In  IT&Ci, as well as several volumes of  lectures.

This story of Gibbon, the famou*  historian" was told by a contemporary: ' >'  "Gibbon had a small face, almost  lost between a high forehead and a  big double chin and a caricature of a  nose which was crushed between the  encroaching slopes of a pair of baggy  cheeks. One day he was introduced  by M.-de Lauzen to Mme.. du Def-  fand, a blind lady, who. was in <he  habit of passing her hands over tho  features of her renowned contemporaries when introduced to her in order  to get an idea of their appearance.  Gibbons received these marks of attention, offering his face to the exploration of the blind lady's fingers  with a delightful frankness.  "Mme. du Deffand passed her fingers over his chubby face carefully.  She did her. utmost to discover aon*c  olher outstanding trait than the pair  of abnormally developed cheeks,cbut  all to no purpose.   During the examination expressions of doubt and bewilderment chased  each  other over  the  face of  the  blind  woman  until  | at last, in an outburst of anger, she  I lot her hands  fall by  her side and  1 cried out, 'Bah; thh Is a bad joke!' **  Women to Blame, of Course.  John   T.   Russell,   president   of  thW  Master Butcher* Association of Amer-  ica,   blames   tho   housewives   of   the  country for the high cost of living.
