Latest unofficial reports place
tlie dead in Tokyo and Yokohama at 240,000, and 450,000
persons injured, as the result
of the earthquake and fire. in
Japan, according to a wireless message picked up here
tonight to Admiral Edward
W. Eberle, commander of the
Pacific battle fleet, from Admiral Edwin A. 'Anderson,
commander of the United
States Asiatic fleet.
Estimates indicatethatmost
of the territory within a radius of forty or fifty miles of
Tokyo virtually was destroyed. In this vicinity torrential
rains have fallen since the
earthquake, and this has
added to tne misery of those
left homeless by the successive disasters.
The rains also have made
the roads so hearty impassable that overland communication between Tokyo and the
remainder of Japan is alinost

mote stories illustrating the possession of a genial wit are told thao
Oliver Herford, the artist and maker
of clever verses The Argonaut says
that he waB once speaking over bhe
telephone with Prof. Brander Mat"
thews, who had just Announced his
intention of sailing tor Europe on
the Celtic—whfeb he pronounoed
'Keltic."
"Ob, please don't say Keltic,
Brander," pleaded Herford. -'Because if you do, you know, you'll
bave a bard sea all tbe way over"
Shanghai, Sept. 4.—Reports ol; the
Tokyo earthquake and Area here are
conflicting, but itis asserted that-, the
disaster is far worse than the catastrophe of 1856, when 100.000 lives
were lout. The reports state that
four fifths of Yokohama has beet destroyed, inrludlbg 100,000 howeq.
Illiterate Ministers
In tbe mountains of the South
there are men who, though illiterate, have answered, tbe call to the
ministry. Naturally, tbey are handicapped, tor tbey mnst depend on
others to read the. Bible to them.
But unfortunately—ao we learn
from Mrs. Cora Wilson Stewart in
Moonlight Schools—some of tbe
pupils that tbe day schools turn out
are as poor readers ae those who
never went to school.
"Paul was an oyster man," one of
Ihem once read to au illiterate minister—meaning of course "an austere
man." Tbe next Sunday the preacher declared to bis congregation that
Peter was a fisherman and that Paul
was an oyster man. Tbus his flock
got a cooception of Paul that probably was unique.
Another minister beard the sentence, "Jacob made booths for his
cattle," road "Jacob made boots for
his cattle." The following Sunday
be said from the pulpit: "Jacob, that
humane man, would not even permit his cattle to go barefooted, but
made boots for tbem to protect
their tender feet ae they walkad
over the stones/'
the past two years the licensee of
ninety-six clubs have been cancelled
Tbree Oriental clubs are included,
the balance being "white" clubs.
Of this tot <l sixty eight licences
were cu off because of liquor activities of the clubs. Mr. Manson
claims that this evidence should
show conclusively that hn depart
ment ha* at nil times been awake to
the question of clubs.
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of
Unds, takes objection to the wording of a report of statements made
at the empire forestry conference,
that logging was a wasteful operation in British Columbia. He said
that the leaving of a large amount
of timber in the woods was due to
tbe fact that a certain percentage
of timber was oot suitable to the
markets open to British Columbia
lumber, but on the whole lumbering
io this province was being carried
oo most economically.

Special Oorrtsgpoadence of The Sun.
Victoria.September 5,—There was
a decided improvement in industry
throughout British Columbia last
year, according to tbe fourth annual
report of the department of industries, just published by tbe government. There was also a marked renewal of interest in the vast wealth
of raw materials of tbe province.
Included in the report ie an elaborate directory of products manufactured in British Columbia, a work
whioh required « great deal of research and time on the part of the
department. Tbere are 482 different articles manufactured, witb 2718
establishments operating in tbe
province. During the year the department of industries distributed
15,000 copies of the directory.
The report points out that the av*
erage British Columbia product is
equal to if not better than tbe artis,
cle imported or brought here from
eastern Canada, a point often unappreciated by local consumers, who
would save money and encourage
bome industry by selecting British
Colombia products wbere possible.
The minister of industries points
out tbat British Columbia exports
too many products in the raw slate:
copper, ztnc, lumber, lead, silver,
fish and particularly agricultural pro
ducts. At tbe same time canned
soups, vegetables aod fruits are im-
potted in large quantities.

Reorganisation of the govsrnmen t

by Hon. Dr. MacLean, provincial
secretary. Under tbe new system it
will be possible to tell to a cent the
coat of every piece ol printing u nder
taken. The government printing
office ia the largest in tbe province
snd iB considered one of tbe most
modern on tbe continent. Tbe service costs approximately $250,000
per year. Ampng other work handled is the printing of the British
Columbia Gazette, the largest publi
cation in tbe province outside of
daily papers.

The largest collection of illicit
liquor ever in tbe possession of tbe
attorney-general's department is
doomed to destruction, an order in
council having been passed author
ising tbe step. It is bootleg whisky
of doubtful origin and none of the
stuff is considered fit to sell in the
government stores.
Ae an evidence of bis activity in
curbing the illicit operations of clubs
in British Columbia, Attorney-Gen-
eral Manson announces tbat during
Tbe storge of fruit and vegetables
for bome nd market must receive
greater attention lhad it has hitherto
been accorded. Tbe amount of waste
annually is very great. As a first
step towards eliminating tbis, every
farme or household with sufficient
land to grow vegetables, and per
haps fruit trees, should nnderstand
more about stork g the crop. Some
crops keep best in an atmosphere
that has a bigb moisture content,
whereas others require a low percentage of humidity. So it will be
seen that there can not be a coodi
tion to suit all vegetables and fruits
in tbe same cellar or storage building. Apples, pears, potato s, carrots
and cabbage soon deteriorate in very
dry storage; wbile on the otber band
wintersquasb, pumpkins, marrows
snd otber such crops like s dry st
mosphere. Moulds sud rots Boon
destroy them.
If you know your cellar is a very
dry one and you wish to keep apples,
etc., in it make provision for adding
moie moisture to the air by intro
duoing wet sacks spread out or by
sprinkling tbe floor, tbe idea being
that a lsrge surface must be wet and
evaporation quick. Tbe atmospheric
humidity oan be tested with a wet
and dry bulb thermometer. Take
the readings and check up on the
chart which is supplied with it. A
humidity ranging between 75 and
85 is satisfactory.
Io case of squssb and pumpkins,
etc., any frost proof place which is
dry is suitable—tbe top shelf of the
pantry, for instance, or shelves in
the pssssgs. Quality is often lowered by poor ventilation. Where crops
are stored in large quantities ventilators Bhould be open as much as
possible to carry off gases and hest

Literary art is seldom employed in

his telegraphic style, though with another purpose than the gjatificatiou

When the man is in the country,
says the Express, he writes beautiful
telegrams to his aunts in town on tlio

Notes, Notions and Notables
The Academy of International Law was recently opened at The Hague.   It is proposed
to gather students and professors of interna -
tional lawfrom all over the world for an annual
lecture course of three months.   It is hoped
that the Academy will build up and establish
a universally recognized code of intornationa 1
law and help to encourage among the intel -
lectual leaders of the world an international
spirit and an enthusiasm for justice to all nations. James Brown Scott, the American pub
Heist, has beeu paaticularly active in bringing the Academy to pass, and the Carnegie
Foundation has advanced the money to make
it possible.

A good human machiae should not wear out
in seventy years, says Dr. MacCabe, the English army doctor who has written on human
life, its enjoyments and prolongation. Over
against the opinion of the Psalmist he quotes
Genesis vi, 3, "And the Lord said: 'My spirit
shall not always strive with man, for that he
also is flesh, yet his days shall be an hundred
and twenty years.' " Argning from scientific
analogies, Dr. MacCabe points out that most
of the higher animals enjoy a life span that is
approximately five times their growing period.
If man falls short of that, it-is mainly owing
to some kind of intemperance, he. believes.
Moderation in all things is his rule of health.
The catastrophe in Japan is of such tremendous proportions that it obliterates all
race prejudice. The loss of life is simply appalling. Nations and individuals will do everything that can possibly be done to lighten the
suffering among the survivors.
There is still romance on the sea, though
sails have given place to steam and internal-
combustion engides. Did you read the story
of the Trevessa, a British cargo boat that went
down in the Indian ocean in June? Rescue
ships failed to find any trace of the crew, but
the forty-four men were at the time sailing
westward in two . ship's boats toward th e
nearest land—fifteen hundred miles away. The
captain's boat reached the island of Rodriguez
after twenty two days at sea, and the mate's
boat was picked up off Mauritius three days
later. The sailors in the first boat, says the
Spectator, encouraged by an old salt sixty
years of uge—a reincarnation of Masterman
Ready—kept cheerfully to a daily ratiou of
one biscuit and as much water as would fill
the cover of a cigarette tin. They had a week's
supply left at the end. The men in the other
boat were less fortunate or less frugal and
much of the time had to depend on catching
such rainwater as fell. Several Lascar seamen
died of drinking soa water, though they must
have knwn, as Homer's Greeks knew, that it
was fatal. Thirty-six men survived the re
markable voyage. ,
Here is a new kind of union. The mathematicians of Germany have have organized to
spread abroad the practical and cultural sig
nificanco of mathematics throughout Germany,
where, they say, there are to be observed "uu
friendly tendencies" toward mathematics. We
have always understood that a good many of
the younger students in that study did not
feel kindly toward it, but we had not sup
posed that their influence was strong enoug h
to make a union of schoolmasters necessary
to fight it, says the Youth's Companion.   Per
haps the Germans have become disgusted
with mathematics by the daily necessity  of
figuring up to the third or fourth decimal just
how much the mark is worth.

THE STORY OF A MAN WHO WOULD
SUCCEED ANYWHERE
Twenty thousand cartloads of stones were
picked up and hauled away by J. P. Jacobson-
Elmquist in clearing land for his farm in
Sweden. So no one objects to his winning this
year's first prize of the Swedish Agricultural
association.
We'll call him Jake for short. In 1895 he
took tbree acres that no one else wanted; it
was suck a rock pile. Patiently he set to work
digging up the boulders. Finally he bad the
stones all removed aud the soil bearing crops.
Gradually, with profits saved from his harvests, be bought more rock pile. Now he has
eighty acres, ten devoted to crops which support him and his family, and seventy acres of
forest which he planted.
Jake used his twenty thousand cartloads of
stones to build a beautiful wall around his farm
and a fine highway along one side.
He and his wife can take things more easily
now, for their nine children—whose livingjwas
wrested from as hopeless a looking strip of
land as can be found almost any where—ar e
assisting in the work.
How many men would have the patiente
and confidence in their own efforts to attempt
the task undertaken by Jake back in 1895?
His success demonstrates that success is
largely up to the individual himself; that no
handicap is too big to be overcome; that man
can create his own opportunity.
The story of Jake's life is enough to make
some pf the rest of us ashamed of ourselves
when we grumble or become discouraged at
our lot, though we have easy sledding compared to Jake,—Kitsilano Times.

"'Tis the heart's voice alone'ean reach the

The invention of the telephone resulted, not
from an effort to find a means of communication, but from the deep pity in the heart of
the inventor for those without the ability to
hear the human voice. .
The range of the unaided voioe is only a
few feet; but the same voice speaking into the
telephone may be heard a mile or three thousand "miles away. The inflections, the accents, the individuality are all transmitted
faithfully.
The telephone stands ready day or night to
transmit your voice to relative, friend, or any
with whom you have need of speech. The
telephone is the universal instrument.

traffic, which arrived in Winnipeg recently to augment the rolling stock
of tha Canadian Pacific railway. This equipment is now in readiness for the
transporting of western Canada's crop, which bids fair to be one of the largest

Tips on Tapioca
What do you know about tapioca?"
Well, it is round; it is made of—of—
Let Charles W. Mead help us out; in
Natural History he describes how the
Indians of Brazil manufacture the
starchy, jelly like globulrs.
The Indian woman, he says, takes
a large piece of bitter cassava root in
both hands and rubs it back and forth
on a board studded with huudreds of
sharp pebbles until the root is res-
dsced to pnlp When she has grated
a sufficient quantity she presses as
much water out of it as possible. For
this purpose she usis as a press a long,
narrow tube of basketwork called a
tipiti, with a.loop'at either end. She
forces the pulp into the press, which
she then hangs up by one of the loops
Through the lower iood she inserts a
long, stout pole, which she runs under
some convenient object, which serves
as'a fulcrum. Then she sits on the
free end of the pole, and her weight
stretches the press and forces the
liquid through the interstices of the
baskotwork. The liquid is caught in
a pottery vessel and is made into cas •
sareep, the favorite condiment of the
South American Indian,
The wet mass is taken from the
press and spread on a large fiat dish
of pottery with a raised rim; under
the dish a fire is built. If stirred
rapidly the preparrtion will not cake
into large masses but will quickly
agglomerate into small, irregular pel-
ets, which are the tapioca of commerce.

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently ob#
tained, are: "Io provide a Home and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Cire, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of siuli unfortunates, who, for the lack of such service, periah every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
Hohool age witli uii-inal, licvtltliy bodies and sound minds."
Thin is a largo and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the various provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presaut time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one iu the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boaad. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.
