C, FRIDAY, OCTOBER .16, 1914  $1.00 PER YEAR  Tl OF THE  CITY COUNCIL  Mayor'Gaw and"'Aid.1 Bontbron,  Donaldson, Henniger,. Manly and  MeCallum were present at the meeting of rhe city couucil on Monday  night.  A telegram was read from Hon.  Martin Burrell. He had presented the  resolution regarding' the "Columbia  post office to the post office authorities. The postmaster general' and  the deputy postm >ster general were  bo h .'under doctors' care. ' Received  .and filed.  Frank Haverty, secretary of the  voliinteer.fire department, submitted  a list of names of the. members of  brigade, and requested that the  council exempt them from the pay-  medt of road tax. On motion of  Aid. Manly and MeCallum", the request was granted.  James T. Pell offered to .sell .lot  30, block 31, to thecity. On motion  of Aid. Manly and Bonthron, the  clerk was instructed to notify Mr,  ' Pell that the city was not in a position to engage in the real estate  - ��������� business.  An offer of "850 from Mr.   Walker  . for a city lot was accepted.  A petition for a cement sidewalk  on' Fourth-street .was ."received. from  *'.S. T. Hull, G. M". Fripp and M. M.  .. Kerman. On motion of Aid. Manly  and MeCallum, the-couucil decided  to build a .temporary walk on the  street, provided the petftioners gave  their consent.  .- Dr. C. M. .Kingston addressed the  ' council and asked for a" grant from  the city of $1000 to complete his  new hospital. He , said the  building was.a credit to the city and  would prove-of great benefit to the  community. 4 It was now oohipleted  with the exception of the heating  plant and the plumbing, and if the  city saw fit to assist nim, it would  be opened this fall; if not, this event  would nave to be postponed until  some time next year. The members of the eouncil expressdd themselves as being favorably disposed  toward Mr. Kingston's^ request,  uniting in saying that" the money  would be donated for a worthy  cause, and that the new hospital  was modernand a credit to Grand  Forks, but none of them could see  how the proposition "could possibly  be financed at the present time.when,  as one of the aldermen expressed it,  it was the duty of the city to care  for its citizens who had been rendered destitute by reason of the war  and the closing down of our industries. This work of relief, he said,  would have to be attended to first���������  and it would have- to be attended to  even though it had to be done by  barter.  The chairman of the board of  . works reported that the street work  was at present costing from $60 to  $65 per day. There were twelve  men and five teams employed on it.  The board intended to continue the  work for thirty days longer. At the  end of that time it was expected that  the macadamizing of Winnipeg  avenue and Donald street would be  finished. He also recommended  ' that the clerk notify G. Gowland  and F. Lathe to move, their fences  off Prospect avenue, and that a aimi-  lar notice be sent out in rpapect  to  the retaining wall at the Methodist  parsonage. The- footbridge at the  Granby smelter, he said,- would  have to be repaired.  Chairman MeCallum,,of the-water  and light committee, reported that  the laying of the new water main on  Victoria avenue had been completed  and some extra work bad been done  near the^Gr^nd Forks brewery. Mr.  St. Cyr had made application for  city water. He recommended that  the Sharpshooters be given free  water and.light at their barrucks on  Second street.  Aid.' Donaldson drew   the   atten  tion of the council to the fact that a  notice should be posted on the Winnipeg avenue bridge, informing the  public that it is in bad condition.  On motion of Aid. Bonthron^ tbe  clerk was instructed to notify Mr.  Gowland and' Mr. Lathe .to move  their fences off Prospect' avenue  within two weeks, or the city would  do the work and.charge the cost up  to the property. A 'ike notice was  also ordered to be mailed regarding  the removal of the retaining wall at  the Methodist parsonage.  On motion of Aid. MeCallum, the  Sharpshooters were granted free  water and light at their barracks.  The finance committee recommended the payment- of the city  payroll and the past month's accounts, which was concurred in by  the council.  On motion of Henniger, the council decided,to. pay. the men, working  on'the street's by orders good at atiy  store in the cioy.

Friday  Antwerp makQs a heroic defense,  aud the report of'it*** fall !is 'not confirmed. One dispatch savs the situation is critical;-another is more hopeful. The allies cross the frontier in  an effort to raise the siege. If the  enemy can capture Antwerp, over one  hundred thousand troops can be sent  to von Klnck's aid.  A sharp offensive movement fails to  pierce the allies' lines. The front is  now within sixty-eight miles of Ant:  werp. * Sixteen hundred Germans are  captured in a lively battle  near Roye.

Saturday  The tragedy of the fall of Antwerp  is lightened by its gallant defense. A  prolonged- resistance against the Germans'"treTaendous^eiigines of war' was  impossible. ' A merciless rain of shells  threw terror into the people of the  stricken city. French .official circles  believe that the forced evacuation of  the city will lengthen the war." The  siege of the city last eleven days.  The German cavalry is driven  farther northwardand the allies hold  their positions. A spirited attack between Arras and the River Oise is  repulsed by the Franco British troops  An official press bureau says the brilliant French'uniforms are conspicuous  and the British leaders are marked by  their swords and equipment.  The kaiser's army which besiged  Antwerp is now said to be moving  swiftly toward Ostend with the object  of capturing King Albert and Queen  Elzabeth and the Belgian official securities. The queen already has  reached England.  The Russians cut the foe to pieces  and continue the fight on the East  Prussia front. The Cossacks surprise  the Austrians with cross tire.

Monday  The allies gain a foothold on the  heights commanding the Prussian  position. In an optimistic report,  General Joffre says the line holds  staunchly, the ground is stained in  Vosges, the strain is less near Ver-  dan, and the foe is unable to take tho  offensive. Ghent is reported to be  occupied by the enemy, who are  marcbing rapidly toward Ostend.  A German submarine sends a Russian cruiser with its crew to the but  torn in the " Baltic. The lost vessel  was modern with a complement of  over five hundred men,  The German  army in  France and  Belgium has received heavy reinforce-;  ments during the last ten days, and a j  million and a half  men    now   oppose '  the allies. |  The French, by a clover ruse, catch  the Germans in a trap. Riflemen at  front and rear wither the foe.  The fall of Antwerp releases more  men for thc allies than  for Germany.  Preparations for the sending of j  Canada's second contingent to the'  front are proceeding rapidly.  -Detachments   of   Russian   cavalry  reach the plains of Hungary.  Tuesday  Gan. von Kluck tries to force his  way through the allies' lines to the  coast. Delayed dispatches tell of the  fierce stJUffgJe now raging on _ French  and Belgian" soil. To capture the  ports on the Straits of Dover now appears to be the plans of the kaiser's  army. Tha weakened. German centre  gives way before the Freuch attacks,  arid the allies also claim to have made  marked progress on their left wing.  Martial law has been declared  throughout the Union of South Africa  as a result of the discovery of a rebellion in ' the northern part of Cape  province.  Hand to hand fighting wins  a   vie  tory for the Cossacks.    They .swim   a  river and   throw themselves on   their  foes.    Three thousand .prisoners   are  taken.  Rumania has to guard the Danube,  and this is given as the reason why  she does not assist the allies.  The officials of the Belguin government have transferred their office sto  Havre.  Constantinople sends emissaries to  Morocco to preaeh a holy war against  France.  The Canadian troops are training  on Salisbury plains.  Wednesday  The Prussians fail in their effort  to work around the Franeo-British  left wing. The allies have made a  direct gain against the army of. "Gen.  von Kluck and a decisive blow is  likely soon to be struck. The' Germans occupy Lille and Cpurtrai. The  British army, fighting on difficult  ground,- forces* the enemy's Hank back.

Warren, president of the Kettle Valley  Railway company:  "We connected up the Kettle  river and Okanagan valley on Friday last, the steel meeting at mile  45, east of Penticton. We now have  almost 225 miles of steel laid, of  which 175 miles are continuous from  Midway to Osprey lake, via Penticton. Over 90 per cent of the grading of the entire line is completed.  All grading will be finished in an-  other'month. At the beginning of  winter there will remain only sixty  miles of track to be laid next year."  1 .OF THE CITY  The dwelling house on Ontario  street, near the Great Norther station, owned by John -Webster and  occupied by Bert Fischer and family, wap totally destroyed by fire between 11 and 12 o'clock last Sunday night. The department made  a quick run, but the flames had  gained too much headway when it  arrived, and the house and furniture  were' entirely consumed. Loss, -  about $1000. The loss on the furniture was partially covered by insurance.  A fire in the West end Wednesday night razed a couple of Hindu  shacks near Weston. , A false alarm  about 5 o'clock last night only ��������� created a little excitement for a few  minutes.  The work of installing the clock  in the tower of the new post office  building has advanced to the stage  where it shows its face to the public,  but it was not yet commenced to  announce the hours and minutes.  Ernest Rice has struck a a x inch  vein of gold and silver that runs  $500 to the ton on his property in  Summit camp, near Piincelon.  Christinas will soon be nere again.

Herman Elmer, secretary of the  Miohsl, branch of the United Mine  Workers of America, was recently  arrested and taken into custody for  sedition by the provincial police,  acting  under  military instructions.  Some boys, old enough to know  better, who are in the habit of taking other people's bicycles, are by  this method doing excellent training for a future home in some jail  or penitentiary.  In spite of the war and the closing  down of the Granby smelter, the  mercbante of the city nre doing a  fair business. -T*rji**2ttEr,*^*!������',^w*..ya*S3rc,ww^w^  THE  SUN,  GRAND   FORKS,    B.

Mrs. Toby was-  accompanied     by    her     iive-'ycar-old  daughter, Jessie.  "What a beautiful house you have,  .airs. Goby!" said Mrs. Toby.  "Isn't it nice?"  "It is indeed,'' replied Mrs. Toby.  "And, do you know, 1 intended calling  on you a fortnight ago, but have been  so busy."  "Oh, mamma," chimed in little Jessie, "you did come���������"  "How dare you talk like that? Speak  when you're spoken to," interrupted  Mrs. Toby, coloring" up.  Tears wellod into the child's eyes,  and Mrs. Toby sympathetically said:  "There, don't cry, little dear. You  must have been mistaken."  "1 wasn't," blurted out . Jessie.  ' Mamma knocked ever so many times  and then said to me: "Come on. I suppose we shall have to go to the expense of getting tea in town."

By their primitive means the settlers never reach a level below .120  feet. 7'here was hot much need of carrying tlie shafts any further, because  coal was little used for anything but  heat; in fact,, there was no need for  coal anywhere except where wood was  scarce. This great industry in the  Canadian province developed rapidly  as soon as demands began to be made  for the new fuel and now the acres of  the original settlers are covered with  a maze of vast machinery, the latest  of which has but recently brought tlie  daily output up to ],000 tons of tlie  highest grades of bituminous coal.  Nova Scotia now ships to all parts of  the world, the black stones that helped make bearable the cold ft'inters of  pioneer days.  sentatives  of  the  Canadian  Bankers'  Profane Dancing  Harriet Beecher Stowe records that  in her girlhood she andjier friends  used to dance a jig entitled "Go to the  Devil aud Shake Yourself." This dance  must have enjoyed a long spell of popularity. The first Duke of Buckingham and Candos was indignant when,  deigning to attend an assembly ball  at Airesford, his request for a dance,  addressed to a local rector's wife, met  with the reply, "Go to the Devil and  Shake Yourself!" He complained to  the rector, and it then transpired'that  the lady, who was somewhat deaf,  thought his grace had asked her what  dance was then being played. This  incident occurred in 1795, and twenty  years later Crabbe, in his "Tales,"  animadverts on. a bookseller for stocking the music of a dance with such a  profane  title.���������Manchester  Courier.  How Finger Prints Are Taken  There would seem to be an unfailing  method of identifying every individual man, and that is by his fingerprints. No two people, it is said, ever  have exactly the same markings, and  at Scotland Yard the police keep a  large file of finger-print impressions,  and can turn up any one of them in  a moment or two if they want to  identify a prisoner. The method of  taking - these impressions is very  simple, and any boy or girl can take  finger-prints from his or her own fingers, or from friends and relatives.  Take a tube of moist sepia paint, and  squeeze a drop on to a plate or saucer.  Then add a drop of water, and after  mixing the sepia and water into a  paste, press the finger upon it, turning the finger half over, so as to ink  the whole of the front of it. Then  press the finger in the'same way on a  sheet of clean paper, and when it is  removed the impression will be there.  Association, the whole situation was  carefully considered, and effective arrangements made to meet any unusual  demands on the Canadian- currency  and banking' system. _     ^  The provision of most importance  to the general.public is the announcement of the Minister of Finance authorizing payments in Bank Notes instead of In gold or Dominion Notes.  Tn other words, the public may continue tlie usual custom oi paying  money in "bills" as we call them, of  ?5, $10, $20 or other denomination?, is-"  sued by our Chartered Banks, as well  as in bills issued by the Canadian  Government. Tradesmen, transportation companies and all public offices  will continue to accept those bills, as  they have always done, and so far as  our currency is considered the war  will have no effect. ���������  The government's readiness to give  the Banks any support they may require coupled with their own exceptionally strong position in reserves of  ready cash, should allay any uneasiness which might be felt by depositors. In times of war, as in times of  peace, the ��������� safest place 'for-private  savings is undoubtedly in the handd  of our Banks.  31  '-'allest Flagpole nnd Largest Flag  The tallest single-piece wooden flagpole-ever erected has been ��������� placed rin  the Panama-Pacific exposition grounds  at San Francisco. It is trimmc*l .in the  shape of a hexagon, from tlie trunk.of  a Douglas fir tree, 240 feet in height,  cut in Oregon. The pole is 4 feet "in  diameter at the base, 15 inches at "the  top, and weighs 35 tons. W,hen erected  it was imbedded in' a reinforced concrete foundation, and.anchored solidly. After the cement had set, all of  thc guy cables were removed, leaving  the great shaft without-a bracing other  than its base. Three large derricks  were used in lifting it into place. A  spiked ball, weighing 020 pounds, and  measuring 10 feet oyer all, was placed  at the apex. When'tbe "exposition is  opened the pole w'ill fly a 46-foot  American flag.   ,  This exposition flag, however, is' almost minute compared with the flag,  150 feet long and 75 feet wide, which  headed a procession of nearly '5,000  persons at the flag day exercises.at  St. Louis.- It was borne by 250 men  and boys through the principal streets  of the city. In order to keep the flag  from dragging.as it was being carried,  boy scouts took their places beneath  the banner and supported its weight  on props. At Jefferson Memorial, the  ���������flag was hoisted, more than covering  thf. east half of the north side" of the  building. It has been suggested that  this flag be sent to San Francisco to  be hoisted on. the exposition flagstaff  on "Missouri Day."  -���������  Carried Black Bear 10 Milcc  Carrying a black bear which hatf  been caught in his trap ten miles up  the - Jordan-��������� river, J.-H.

The bear was'trapped  and shot on Cottonwood slide.on the  Jordan river*, .it measured over seven  feet from tip to tip and weighed 163  pounds. Air. Munro packed the entire  bear a distance of ten miles over a  rough trail, on his back, a remarkable  feat of endurance. He was -accompanied on his trip by F. Tillman who  secured some good snapshots ��������� of the  bear alive in'the-trap. The'skin was  deep black and one or the most perfect ever-secured in that vicinity.

Better a foggy present than a misty-  past.  Juniper Wood to Replace Cedar  .After a long.series of experiments  conducted. with the co-operation of  four large manufacturers, the forest  service of the department of agriculture has reached the decision that the  juniper is the most available substitute for red cedar: for use in pencil  making. In pursuance- of this, arrangements are now being made, by  some of the largest companies, for  lumber rights'in the juniper lands in  New Mexico and other places. The  present output of pencils in this country amounts to 1,000,000 daily, while  it requires. 7,000,000 cubic feet of wood  a year to allow for this production.  The forest service and the manufacturers have been worried for some  time over' the lumber situation, as  the supply of cedar is diminishing  rapidly. .Hard woods could be used  but for the fact that few pencil users  ever carry sharp knives.  How Flowers Are Fertilized  In order that fruit may come on our  fruit trees and bushes, it is necessary  that the blossoms be fertilized, and  this is carried out either by insects,  such as bees, flying to one flower, getting dusted with the pollen, and then  flying to another, where the pollen is  rubbed off, or by the wind, which  blows the pollen from one blossom  to another, or blows the various flowers together. In greenhouses, however, where some of the .choicest  fruits, such as peaches, are grown,  this natural fertilization is impossible;  there are probably neither- bees nor  wind under the glass. Iu order that  the fertilization may be affected, the  gardener takes either .a camelhair  brush, or, for the blossoms that are  out of each reach, a rabbit's fluffy tan  tied'to the end of a' stick    " '  Bagpipes Under Other Names  Bagpipes are among the oldest of  musical instruments, for in slightly  different forms they were known to  the Chinese, Assyrians, Greeks and  Romans, centuries before Christ. They  figure upon a coin of Nero. In modern times no country can claim a  monopoly of- the instrument, for the  Breton "bignon," the German "sachp-  felfe" and' the French 'cornemeure"  are all bagpipes under another name.

The coyote is one of the sliest and  hr.rdest of all fur bearing animals to  trap. He ..delights in. digging up traps,  springing them,- eating the bait-and  otherwise disturbing the set without  getting caught. His sense cf smell is  very- acute. The best way'to trap. him  is to build a bonfire ov.er the'set after  the traps have .been properly placed.  Throw into the- embers some bacon  rinds! chicken bodes or, better yet,  bones of sage hen.or grouse. The coyote habitually searches about' camp-  fires - for stray bits of meat and is  there less wary. The fire' obliterates  the traces of the'set, eliminates the  tracks and smell of a human being,  and the odor of. the burned "meat will  attract him from a long distance.

How Titiens was ultimately^ cured of  the habit Mr. Ganz relates in his reminiscences:-"She was sitting at supper  after a concert in a provincial town-  when the manager made some "remark  which annoyed her. As usual, she took  the first thing that came to hand, a  soda water bottle and flung it at him.  The manager was sitting at the" table  with his back to the window. The bottle missed him, smashed through the  window, arid nearly- killed a casual  passerby.

Now it is weird ?and visionary,  biit Sir Oliver Lodge, who is in the  top rank of living scientists, thinks  it not improbable and is now calling  on his fellows to bogin wireless  studies with this purpose" in mind.  Tlie more there is discovered about  the way wireless telegraphy works  the more it is evident that weather  and wireless waves are tangled with  each other.  Almost every one knows that wireless telegraphy works better by night  than, by day, and has peculiar jumps  of efficiency at sunset. A wireless  operator on shipboard in the far north  found that during a display of the  aurora borealis the northern lights  were widely disturbed when he sent  out wireless signals from his ship.  The growing theory concerning the  way wireless waves follow the curve  of the earth is in simple language lhat  the iipp,er layers of the air form a sort  of magnetic cushion against which  the wireless waves can bound along.  Sir Oliver wishes to have experiments  made by discharging very powerful  wireless waves from kites under all  kinds of weather conditions in order  to ascertain whether, the waves will  under any conditions make clouds  condense into rain or prevent them  from condensing.  It is not to be expected, of course,  that rain could be obtained from a dry  sky, but normal conditions or the air  would leave much opportunity for  weather control if the theory should  prove workable.  The total eclipse of the sun on a  path from Greeland to Persia  is' to- he made the occasion for  elaborate wireless experiments. Wireless signals will be sent out from within the path of shadow and across the  shadow, and the effect of the shadow  on these signals should give mo.re  clews to the whole problem.���������Saturday  Evening Post.

LF.SS   MEAT  Advice   of   Family   Physician  Formerly pe *ple thought meat ueo-  essary for strength and muscular vigor.  The man wh<* worked hard was supposed to require meat two or throe  times a day. Science has found out  differently.  It is now a common thing for the  family physician to order less meat, as  iu the following letter from an casteru  man:  "I had suffered for years with dyspepsia and nervt.itsr.OHs. My physician  advised me to eat less meat and  greasy foods generally.

Phonb R74                        Guard Pom's, B. C  FRIDAY  , OCTOBER   16,  1914  A   dispatch   from   Ottawa,   pub-  liphed in the government press  on  Wednesday, says that rumors of an  early election, which seem to he prevalent throughout the country, may  turn   out  to be true.    Commenting  oi the probability of a general  elec-  tton this fall, the   Victoiia   Times  pays:    "It is reported   persistently  from Ottawa that a certain group of  politicians, uuder the  leadership of  Bob Rogers, are endeavoring to per"  suade the prime minister io precipitate a general election this fall. They  conceive   it   io   be , good    political  sfrategy   to   take   advantage of the  grave crisis confronting "the   empire  and the possibility tb'at   the  public  mind   is  so engrossed with the war  that it might overlook the defects of  policy'  which, their   altitude   now  cynically admits. They would divert'  a large proportion of  the  war loan  authtrizi-d by a  united   parliament  to   the  party campaign fund, and,  Imagining tbe hands of the Liberals  tied  by   their patriotism, make   a  bold bid  for return   to   power.    A  feeler recently was   sent    out in the  form   of   an   Ottawa dispatch to  a  New  York   paper  stating  that.the  government   probably     would    be  forced to an immediate appeal to obtain the endorsement of its policy in  regard to imperial defence.    It declared that   the Liberal   party was  opposed   to   Canada's   participation  in the present war and said but   for  this opposition Canada  would have  sent 100,000 men instead of 25,000.  This tissue of   black   falsehoods, as  black as the soul of   tbe  individual  who sent it or the political profligate  who   inspired   it, was copied   with  relish   by   some of  the government  papers in the  east.    We  anticipate  that the Canadian people will reject  the infamous suggestion   with   contempt and loathing. They know that  Conservatives and Liberals are   united on the subject of   Canada's participation in the war, that   the   Lib  eral leaders and Liberal   newspapers  and   public   men  have  given their  whole-souled support to the govern  ment   from   the  beginning both in  parliament   and   out   of   it, that if  there has been any criticism   it   has  been upon the unfortunate  delay in  sending   the   Canadian   contingent  and that because not  enough    have  been sent in view of the large  number desirous of shouldering arms for  the flag.    The only discordant note  has come from Henri Bourassa, the  National leader, three of whose lieutenants   are   colleagues   of  Robert  Rogers, although, to their credit be  it .said,   they   have   refrained 'from  endorsing his-vicious propaganda at  ���������this time.    Imagine the degradation  to which those  fLsiipot   politicians  would   drag   thin   country!    Think  what the British people, would  say  if the government took advantage nf  the   crisis   to  spring a general election!    When    the United   Kiugdo*u  is united to a man; when Ulsurmen  Nationalists are, standing  t-hnuhier  to shoulder for the ,flag;  when   the  ministries of   France and  Belgium  include   representatives, of   parties  which   in   other   limes   were  constantly   at   one   another's   th roots;  when even Russian nihilist are fighting for the czar,  there  are   men   in  Can-id i who would divide bis country into two hostile   political   camps  and make Canada an obj-et of  con  tempt throughout the world!  What,  we may ask, would be the effect  ot  such a move upon India? Of course  a  yell of delight would    arine   from  Berlin.    There the distorted   report  of a genrrnl election   in   Canada   at  this time wnuld berve .to  encourage  the (airmails    to  greater activity; it  would nerve their t-oldiers   to   more  savage efforts to destroy the Britons,  Canadian-, Australians and East'in  diaus risking ti.eir lives for the  im-.  perml   cause.     In    their  effect the  falsehoods and proposals in the dispatch sent from Ottawa to the   New  York paper  are    nothing   short   of  treason.     Were it not  for   the   fact  that   the   dispatch   appeared   in a  reputah|e journal    we    would 'have  every justification for the   suspicion  that it was written by Herman   Rid-  der   or   Count von Benign>iff, who,  failing to involve the United   Stites  in   difficulty    with   Great   Britain,  were trying to create political diversion   in   Canada.     If there are any  serious advocates of an   election   in  Canada at thts  critical   time   when  country's all is at stake, they should  either be deported or  jailed.    They  are a menace to the integrity of   the  empire." ' .    -  SOUR, ACID STOMACHS,  GASES OR INDIGESTION  Don't  wait too. long  to  have that  reset.   Your diamond set  while'you wait.

As these schools proved to be  very   helpful   to  the fruit  growers,  tbe department has decided to   offer  them again.  The   department   of    agriculture  will provide a competent   instructor  and pay bis expenses.    The local ad  ministration of the pruning  schools  will be placed in the .hands of a ' responsible   local    body,   such as the  Farmers' institute, the Fruit   Growers'   association,    or   the   board   of  trade, who will   be   responsible   for  the" guarantee of a minimum of eight  pupils, but not more   than    twelve,  with the proper qualifications,   at   a  fee of ������2.00 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 wbich^the minimum  guarantee    will    be..sixteen   pupils,  and not over twenty-tour.    The local  organization  will   also   provide   an  orchard or orchards, where   the   in-  structor   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 will  prune trees under the supervision of  the instructor, there will be lectures  on the theory of pruning, which will  include talks on pruning as related  to the formation of fruit buds, and  to plant growth; also the subject of  top grafting undesirable varieties  will be dealt with, along with many  other points of,interest.  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 neces-ary for large trees.  The department expects that the  instructor'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 the fruit growers of this district the important advantages to be  gained from a pruning school.  Pruning is one of the important  operations in the production of first-  class fruit, and one on which the  orchardist can not' have too much  information.  bowels a thorough cleansing and  straighten you out by morning.

Vibration   and   Nitroglycerin   Form   a  Perilous Combination  An accident,' said tc be the most extraordinary on record, occurred at  some oil fields in the Baku district of  .i Russia, on the 'borders of. the Caspian  Soa. One of the big "gusher" oil wells  became choked, and, with a vie-y o������  blowing it clear, a number of iron  drams full of nitroglycerin were  brought down by rail from Derbend  and deposited overnight L: a large  shed which was used by the men as  a sort of canteen.  The steward of this establishment, a  Greek naiued Darios, opened one of  the drums for some reason best known  to himself and decanted a small quantity of the dangerous liquid into a_ long  thin glass used'for mixing vodka.'This  he placed on a shelf '.behind; the bar.  Shortly afterward there entered a  workman named Borkovitch, who was  I famous for the boisterous hilarity of  his manner and especially for his  loud, resonant laughter.  The sight of nitroglycerin in a vodka  tumbler so excited his risibility that  lie gave vent to a series of stentorian  guffaws. This set the half filled glass  "ringing," and the tre'acherous contents immediately exploded.  The concussion sufficed, in its turn,  to explode the rest of the stuff in the  drums, entirely demolishing the slied*  aiul. killing five persons,' all who were  in it at the time. The barman escaped  through having gone down into the cellar just previously, whence he distinctly heard the laughter, followed by  the musical "ringing" of the thin  tumbler and the two explosions.���������  Pearson's Weekly.

William Humphreys was the son of  Thomas Humphreys, a watchmaker of  Barnard Castle, whose shop was opposite the King's Head Inn, where  Dickens spent six weeks in 1837 while  studying the Dotheby's portion of  "Nicholas Nickleby."  The clock remained in possession of  its maker until his-death, when it  was acquired by the father of the present owner."

How Oil Calms.the Waves  An impression prevails that- great  quantities of oil are reqir.rea to calm  the sea, but Prof. Ray Lankester of  England suggests that a pint' of oil  an "hour Avill secure, a zone ot calm  water around a.ship sufficient for thc  safe" launching of small boats.. According to this authorrty, nine pints  of oil" arc sufficient to calm a square  mile of water,- and, incredible as it  may appear, one drop will calm seven  square feet. The oil spreads out over  the surface of the soa in-a film which  has the almost 'unimaginable thicknessof -two-million th's of a millimeter,  yet it holds in leash thc mighty power  of the ocean.'.������������������'���������When this film of oil  spreads over the surface, theheaping-  up action of the water, Avhich-results  in the1 ���������formation first of ripples and  then of waves, cannot take place. The  thinner the film tlie greater is its effect in pulling down ihe crests of thc  Avaves : nd making a lower wave lins.  free from break.

Thc rules now provide  that, in all classes of foreign-going  ships, lifeboats shall be equipped Avith  one' gallon of oil, and a vessel of approved pattern for distributing it in  rough weather. The calming action of  oil on the water has ibeeii: mathematically demonstrated.  In nearly every instance where oil  is used on the great lakes the captains let it drip through the Avaste  pipes both forward and aft. Some of  the mfisters claim, excellent results  from dripping oil through a s.iort piece  of deck hose run through the hawser  pipes or chocks, forward. Many lake  men think-that'these two methods are  as tfficicutas the use of oil bags, and  are much easier to put into operation.  ���������Harold Waters, in Leslie's.

Finding   a  Stolen   Child  Four years ago little Rosa Sissoa  was stolen from her home in Winfield,  La., and all efforts to find her were  unavailing.    Recently Catherine Win-  tors of Newcastle, Ind.,    disappeared''  and  the newspapers  printed Iter picture.    The police  of  Middleport,  O.,  thought they recognized her in a littla  girl who Avas there in company-with  a stranger claiming to be her father.

The birthplace of Rob Roy, the celebrated Highland freebooter, the place  Avhere he died, and his grave, have  been saved by a decision of the house  of lords denying the city of Glasgow  a right to. draw a water supply Iron.  Loch Toil-'and Loch Doine. If Glasgow's request had been necessar.v,  since these lakes are a part of the  eastern watershed, to raise the level  ot tiie lakes some 50 feet, Avhich would  have submerged the Rob Roy landmarks. '  These sentimental considerations  were- laid before the house of lords in  petition after petition, but the decision of that body, sitting in its judicial capacity, was not based upon any  of these points. Tlie ancient riparian  regulations read that Avater from an  eastern Avatershed shall not bo diverted to Aveste.ru uses, and it Avas decided that Glasgow must forego its  water supply for the prosaic reason  that the city is on the wrong side oi  the watershed.

Unless it be proved at the subsequent  inquiry that the disaster was brought  about by circumstances over which  he bad no control and that he did all  in bis poAver to minimize it, he will al.  most certainly, lose his job.  Occasionally a skipper shows such  resource in his time of trial, and Is so  ���������highly commended.by the court, that  the owners of the ship retain his services, but, as a rule, he knows he must  look out for other employment.  If his certificate is, suspended, even  lor a short time, his case is Indeed a  hard one, because he is unlikely to obtain command of a ship again���������at  least, not'"'in this country, says London Answers.  Some years ago a.fine ship Avas  piled up on one of the most dangerous  . coasts in the world. It was her maiden voyage, and she had a number of  passengers on board; but, thanks to  the skill of the captain, everyone was  safely-landed.  At the usual official inquiry the  captain was highly commended, but  on some technical point his certificate  was suspended for a month; Regarded  as, perhaps, the finest officer in tho  fleet, his career was at an end, and,  after months of seeking work, he obtained the tost of harbormaster .in a  small port "in South America.  That is the fate of many a capable  ( officer. Very occasionally some shore  post may be given to a very old and  clever officer who has lost his ves-  eel,^but as a rule he has to be content with tlie command of some small  coasting ship. Unfortunate British  Officers wih be found commanding a  half-caste crew on the ocean byways  of the world, or perhaps they obtain  a post as skipper of a tug in a big  foreign port Avhere British .influence  Js all powerful. ���������    ...  He who gets a position as harbormaster must reckon himself particularly lucky; or be the fortunate pos-  - sessor of influence. lie can never  hope to reach the plums of the service, again, for he Avould not be employed as first or second- officer, except in some small ship.  Sometimes a skipper has saved up a  little money, which be invests in a  sailing coaster, but profits are small,  and the dangers many, and it is not  easy for a new man to pick up cargo,  while the underwriters might have  something to say.  X)n A*ery rare occasions a' captain  who lias come into close' touch with  passengers or merchants whose cargo  he' has carried has so impressed them  with his ability that when misfortune  came they offered him a berth. Such  ��������� cases have been heard of,' and a sailor  - friend once 'told the writer of one he  knew. y. '  'In the navy it is the same, and more  than one promising career has been  nipped in the bud. The captain of the  Montagu, lost on Lundy Island, was  considered an exceptionally smart  man, but he was lost to the navy, and  Joined the staff of one of the big shipbuilding firms.  A naval officer has a pull over the  mercantile man in this respect; be  probably knows so much that some  engineering or armament firm' will be  glad of his services, unless his incapacity lias been proved beyond  doubt.  Another officer of the same battleship was equally fortunate." ��������� Spending several weeks or months over the  work of attempted salvage, he gaineu  , much experience in' this' side of marine Avork, and. subsequently joined a  salvage company. The Avriter believes  lie was afterwards actually engaged  in salvage work for the navy, .although  indirectly,   through  his  company.  The fate of the mate who is in  charge at times of disaster is, always  bad. A year or two ago a second officer shot" himself from worry as a  result of a collision, although, at the  inquiry held afterwards, he w.as bald  entirely free from blame.

"I did not Avant to shoot the young  bull, so i got behind a tree as he  came trotting up, put he pulled up ten  yards from my tree and turned on me.  The only thing to do was to shoot"  him, so 1 reluctantly tired at his head.  I went up to him, but he was not  dead, and tried to get up again. I put  another shot in his forehead, but it  did not reach the brain, and the next  moment it' was I who . Avas . being  chased^     .  "I dodged sharply to my righ:,  thinking that tlie elephant Avould pass,  and I would get a side shot as he  went by; but I tripped over a fallen  tree and went sprawling. I dropped  my rifle, and just managed to seize it  by the nuzzle as the bull Avas -about to  tread .on it. I then dived head foremost into the branches of the fallen  tree.  "I made a frantic effort to crawl  through, but a stout' branch resisted my progress, and at the same moment the bull charged in after me.  The impetus he gave, me bent aside  the stubborn branch, and ' the next  moment I found myself en the other  side, Avhile the elephant was stamp  ing the ground 'five yards from  Avhere 'I stood, evidently under the  impression that I Avas on the ground  under his feet.  , "I quickly turned round and discharged my rifle into 'him. It was  the last cartridge in the' magazine.  The rifle Avas taken out of my hands,  and I found Matola, my gun bearer,  who had counted the shots, -standing beside me,'and offering the second rifle as a waiter might serve a  dish. By some oversight the second  rifle had not been loaded, and I had  Civen strict orders that none of my  men were "ever to load or unload my  rifles. Being a-good soldier, Matola had not disobeyed this order even-  under these extreme circumstances,  but had gene as near to loading it as  he could. The breach Avas open, and  he Avas- holding the clip in position  with his thumb just over the magazine. All I had to do was to .press  it down, as I took hold of the rifle,  and I was ready to fire. The elephant  was turning, round, and 1 shot him-in  the brain.  "The story has taken a long time  to tell, but of course it all happened  in a moment. I think, as an example  of a combination of pluck, discipline  and presence of mind in an emerg  ency, the behavior of Private Matola  would be difficult to beat."  1 TO IIMIIH  WHERE  THE   PENNILESS  MAN   IS  GIVEN   A   HELPING   HAND  LIGHTNING CALCULATORS  A Hr.ven of Shelter for the Deserving  Man  Who  Desires \vork, but Who  Can  Not Afford to  Pay  For  Food,  is Provided by Chicago Man.

Perhaps the most extraordinary thing  about Ramanujan is that, as a mathematician, he is quite untaught. Until a  year ago he Avae a clerk in the employment of the Port Trust of Madras.  But in spite of this, he has, to  quote Mr. Hardy, Fellow of Trinity,  who has taken a great interest in  Ramanujan, "discovered for himself  a great number of things which the  leading mathematicians of the last  hundred years had added to the knowledge of schoolmen, although he was  quite ignorant of their work and accomplishments.

LINOLEUM'S   STORY  What Makes Your Farm Puyl  Ask a business man in the city what  particular line of his stock gives him  his best returns, and he can tell you  without Hesitation. Upon this hangs  his chance of success. Farming is a  business'of many parts, but few farmers have any correct idea of just what  portion of their mixed operations pays  them best. The modern method of  profitable farming is not all work on  the fields, but considerable "head  work" is made to count in final reckoning. To use the head to best advantage it is necessary first to find  out what is wrong and Avhat is right  with the farm operations. There' is  only one real way to do this, and that  is by figures. Figures talk in farming,  and the quicker more of our farmers  ..get busy and by a simple method of  bookkeeping find out for themselves  what make* the old farm pay its way  and Avhat keeps it from paying more,  the better for all.���������Farmer's Advocate.  Horseflesh  Sold as Beef  The civic health authorities recently admitted that there are large quantities of horseflesh being-sold as sausages and beef in Montreal.  Steps are being taken to prevent it,  although medical men are not in  Agreement as to its demerits as food.  Many   Countries   Supply" the   Ingredients From Which  it is Made  Do you know that the ilnoleum you  walk over each day represents products from all  the continents?  We Avill begin with cork, Avhich  largely comes from Nortli Africa.  Here the bark is stripped from the  trunk, and larger branches of the cork  tree when they attain the age of 25  years.  The cork is conveyed from the forest to the nearest boiling station to be  boiled in huge vats until the rough,  woody part can be scraped off and the  bark rendered pliable. It is next shipped to Spain, and trimmed there into  a dozen grades or more, rebaled and  sent to linoleum factories.  Linseed oil, from which linoleum  deriA*es its name, is" obtained from  flax seed largely grown in. Russia  and the Argentine. The flax is similarly thrashed to wheat when the crop  is ripe. The seed is sent to an cil-  crushing centre, cleansed, and, the oil  extracted by means cf crushing the  seed between corrugated steel rollers. Then it is filtered, tanked and  sent to the linoleum factories.  Burlap, which acts as a cohesive  linoleum, is derived from jute, in  ]ndia. Packed in bales,'it is shipped to Dundee, Scotland, to be further treated into burlap, arid then to  the factories for the purpose of backing the linoleum.  Australia is one of the countiles  which supuly pigments for the colo-  iiig of linoleum.

"Neither with the heathen nor with  our own people," he said, "does it do  to advocate religion on mercenary  grounds. For instance, 1 kno%v a manufacturer who last Easter told all his  hands that he would pay them if tbey  went to 'church. The hands all agreed,  and a fine show they made. The manufacturer, scanning their ranks from his  pew, swelled with joy and pride. But  after the service one of the foremen  approached him. 'Excuse me, sir,' he  said, 'but the fellows want me to ask  you if they come to church again tonight do they get overtime?'"  within a few seconds, apparently without effort.  Venom as Antidote  J Extracting, venom from snakes for  the purpose of making an antidote  for the poison is being carried on  at, Parel laboratory, Bombay. Tlie  poison-is sent up to Kasauli, where  it is injected in small quantities  into horses and in course of time a  certain amount of blood is drawn off.  The blood corpuscles are separated  from the serum and the latter is an  antidote, or anti\*enine as it is called.  Several, lives have been saved in Bombay by Jieans of this , antidote. A  watchman at Cumballa Hill was recently bitten and, though in a state of  collapse and paralysis when the injection was made, he recovered entirely  in twenty minutes. In another case a  few days ago a Mali was bitten by a  poisonous snake, but recovered after  treatment. At the laboratory there is  hoav enough of venom to supply all the  demands India is likely to make, and  it is now being sent to Germany and  America, Cobra venom veing very useful in experiments conuected with the  blood.

The    population ot  the Maritime Provinces in 1871   wag-  867,415 and in 1911 was only 937,956,  or an increase of but 22 per cent, in  forty j-ears, or an increase of but four-  .eeiu-'per cent, in the same period.  :In the past fifty years her codfish-  ery flotilla has doubled in number and  quadrupled in tonnage; she has maintained and succeeded in the seal-fishery when Dundee and Halifax    have  abandoned it, and she is now prosecuting it-''-with splendid steamships   and  reaping' a bounteous harvest from   II  every   spring.    She   enterprised    the  modern method of Avhale hunting before Canada atttmptedit* her herring  fishery    became so important as to  compel England and America to re '  soF-t  to   The  Hague  tribunal  for  an  arbitrament upon issues arising out ol  It.   Her bait industry became so pivoted, that her enactment to regulate it  proved a stone from a David's* sling  that lay low the Goliath, Grance, reduced the Gallic isiets of St.   Pierre-  Miquelon  to   beggary,    and    enabled  Newfoundland to re-establish herself  in the European markets from Avhich  French bounty-fed competition had almost driven "her.  Within  thirty years  she has  built  1,000 miles of excellent railroad, provided  a  fleet    of twelve    coastwise  steamers tapping   every   section   of  the island of Labrador, and superior  to anything of their kind in Eastern  Canada,  set  up  2,500  miles  of  telegraph lines,,   erected    eighty    lighthouses,  and  doubled    the  outlay on  the.

Her exports have grown from $5,-  000,000 to $15,000,000, her imports being in  the same proportion and her  revenue from $1,000,000 to $4,000,000.  The  material  prosperity,  too,  of the  people has been enhanced in  a still  greater degree. She has overcome the  consequences cf a fire that deA*asted  St.' John's, in 1892, causing a loss-of  $20,000,000, with only $5,000,000 of insurances,    f. bank crash that nearly  beggared her two years later, and the  vicissitudes of the fishing industry in  recent years with a loss of millions ol  dollars of .ocal capital.

Live In- Hives  In Mesopotamia tho natives use a  quaint form of dwelling, built of mud  bricks in the form of a hive. As the  country is destitute of trees from  Avhich to hew rafters, and as it is also  in some places, devoid of stone, the  natives build their habitations of sun-  dried mud bricks with high and steep  domes, similar in shape to a fceehive.  Each home consists of several of these  hives, standing near together and surrounded by a wall of similar material.  One or more is used to live in, another  for fhe animals, and still another  serves as a. granary, and so on, according to the possessions of the proprietor. The smaller conical piles are  of dried manure, Avhich is used for  fuel.
