An Ingenious "Alibi"
The people who are most Indolent
physically are often quick enougb
mentally. Such wa- the ense witb
tbe British workiAau of wbom the
Tatler tells. He was usually late in
coming to work, and one day the
foreman took bim to task.
"It's a funny thing, Jim," h
said, "yuu alius coming in a quarter
of an hour JbehinoVlhe time and  liv
ing next door to the works; while
Teddy is   alius on  time, and lives

"There's nowt funny about it,"
retorted Jim. "If he's a bit late in
tbe morning, be can hurry: but if
I'm latj, I'm right here."
Ooe of the most horrifying things
wbich has ever happened in this
district, occurred n Trail last Friday morning at 11;05 o'clock, when
Patrick Hanley, a well known insurance mjn wbo ha? resided in tbe
district for a number of years, shot
lind almost iustautly killed Mies
Mildred Neilson, of Vancouver, a
nurse on tbe staff of the Trail hospital, according to tbe details of tbe
tragedy printed in the Rossland
Miner. „.
No motive other than insane jealousy is thought to have prompted
Hanley to commit tbe rash act. He
had been on a trip to tbe coast,
ostensibly to see Miss Neiison's parents, wbo reside at 1723 Napier
street, and from /vbom it is thought
little or no encouragement had been
given him, for it ia alleged the murdered girl, knowing of his mission,
had sent alettei to her parents advising them not to encourago Han
ley. It is believed also that not
receiving the reception he bad hoped
for tbat ne purchased the' revolver,
an automatic, at the coast.
The dead girl wan 25 years of age
and was very popular witb all who
enjoyed her ocquaintance, being
considered very competent in ber
work at tbe hospital.

Hanley, who is a veteran of the
Great War, returned last Thursduy
from Vancouver, wbere he received
tr atment for a recent nervous break
down, being a patient at tbe Hossland Sisters' hospital just before bis
departure. He appeared quite him-
nelf 'gain after arriving in Trail
and discussed business matters with
Trail business men just before leaving to commit the horrible deed
witb which he is charged,
While the doctors were attending
the dying young woman, Hanley,
in the same room in which be shot
Miss Neilson, turned the weapon
upon bimtelf, making a bad wound
in his right chest. .Then, walking
down the stuirs and to tbe lobby,
where there were patients whom tho
physicians were attending, he went
across the street, to the hospital and
informed the nurses on duty of
what he had done, staling he bad
shot Miss Neilson and himself, snd
asjiing theiu to prepare two bids,
Hantej'ti conditi.0,1 was reported

Tells Story of Canadian Pacific
Railway and Building; of
Dominion    .
A facetious American once referred to the Canadian Pacific Railway ns "Canada
on Wheels." Groat
as it i3, the Canadian Pacific would
be the last to appropriate such an
appellation. It can
be truthfully said,
however, that to
understand the re-
c e n t history of
the Dominion ono
B. O. NacBBTH must know that
•f the Canadian Pacific. Now at
last comes a volume, well illustrated
with photographs, which presents
that history in its most palatable
form—that is, in a form emphasizing the human factor,—"The Romance of the Canadian Pacific Railway," by R. G. MacBeth (the Ryer-
son Press, Toronto, $2.50).
The author, who has a number of
historical works to his credit,- is
singularly well equipped. Apart
from his literary skill, he has tho
advantage of having lived in the
Canadian West all his life. He has
always been in close touch with the
Canadian Pacific, though he is
careful to point out that he has
never been connected with it and
has written ar.d published his book
Mr. MacBeth here traces the amazing story of the company's development into the world's greatest transportation system; of the steamships,
of the telegraph and express; colonization; irrigation; hotels and bungalow camps; of its war service
and of all its activities, with a wealth
of interesting detail which Illustrates
the brilliant administrative and organizing ability of its executive.
Canadians should be proud, as
Mr. MacBeth reminds them, that
their country approved the construction of this pioneer transcontinental
when the population was only 4,000,-
000, though the United States had
not dared to undertake a similar
road till she had ten times that number. The frightful difficulties, political, technical and financial, through
which thc company's sponsors and
founders fought their way to victory
are well summarized. For instance,
it is recalled that sections of thc line
north of Lake Superior cost $600,-
000 a mile to build, and a muskeg
east of Winnipeg swallowed seven
tracks before it was conquered. The
author shows that thc triumphant
accomplishment of the work was especially creditable because lt took
place in a period nf immense depression.
Sir William Van Home, general
manager and later president, that
man of tireless energy, vision and
determination, is the central figure
in the volume and there are many
anecdotes illustrating his versatile
character. But all tho other great
men of tho company — Mount
Stephen, Shaughnessy, Beatty, Angus and a host of others—receive
their clue. Lord Shnughncssy's fin*
words: "The shareholders and directors of thc company havo always
been impressed with the idea that
tbe interests of the company arc intimately connected with those of the
Dominion and no effort or expense
has been spared to help in promoting
the development of the whole country" are amply backed by the company's deeds And thc author makes
a statement which is very a propos
when he says- "The country and the
railway, in such a case as this, must
stand 'or fall together. Each is
necessary to the prosperity of the
other. Hence for one to attempt the
destruction of thc other is practically
a roundabout but effective way for
that one to commit suicide,"

Get acquainted with tbe inside of
your motor car. Study its character,
istics. Get into the habit of looking
after it personally as much as pos*
sible. By so doing you will get the
most out of your automoble and
you will find a new satisfaction in
owning a car.
Gasoline, oil and squaro treatment
is all tbat any car asks to give long
and satisfied service.
In this day of simplifiod mechanics tbe average owner is too
often in the habit of allowing the
car to take of itself. As a matter of
fact, tbere is necessity for mechanical knowledge In tbe actual operation, Expert engineers have so des
signed the car tbat women can drive
it as well as men. Nevertheless, tbe
owner who simply knows how to
start bis own car, regulate its speed
and then stop it, while he may
never be called on for further
knowledge concerning its working,
is losing a lot of pluusure wbicb be
could have ut no expense.
There are thousands of owners
who pay absolutely no attention to
thu inside of their car, and run it
until it stjps, no matter how great

They not only fail to get comfortable riding und they not only lose
time while their car is being reo
paired ut some garage, but they loie
the keen enjoyment which one
should get out of owning a perfect
piece of mechanism,
lf every owner studied his man
chine and learned the details of its
inside mechanism, he would soon
become attached to it as is the average sea captain lo his ship or the

A motorist who was driving through a

ished to see a little red light dancing about
close to the ground on the road ahead. As he
drew nearer he saw that it was an electric
bulb fed from a dry-cell battery fastened on
the back of a little dog. Thr owner, a woman
who was walking near by, explained that the
dog refused to stay off the streets at night,and
that to keep him from being run over she had
contrived the canine red light, so to speak,
No doubt the dog will soon becoon familiar

The Britiah air ministry is said to be experimenting with rotating cylinders like those
used by Herr Flettnor's rotor ship. According
to the theory cylinders set horizontally instead of vertically can be nsed in place ol wings
with a distinct addition tb the flying power of
the machine The cylinders are revolved
clockwise relative to the forward motion of
the plane. The spinning accelerates the motion of the air over the top of the cylinder
and retards it below the cylinder. The accelerated air exercises a lifting force, and the retarded air tends to push the Cylinder upward,
so that the effect is doubled. That, at least,
is the theory. How the experiment works
we shall no doubt soon learn.

The Devil's Potholes
National Park, is one of the
natural wonders of the entire
Rocky Mountain region. A vast
deft in the solid rock, reaching a
depth of some 200 feet, and so narrow in places that one may step

tourist expressions of awe and
wonder at the power of accumulated forces ol water.
Tumbling headlong down the
narrow gorge goes . the Maligna
River, mysterious as to its source
and for part of its length a subterranean stream, on its way to
Join the quieter * waters of the
Athabasca far below. At times on
its passage through the narrow
gorge, it tumbles more than one
hundred feet in a sheer drop, its
eddies being churned to foam as
the waters beat a tattoo  against
Entrance to Cave, Maligne Canyon
the rocky sides of the canyon on
their downward leap.
From the footbridges which span
the narrow gash in the solid rock,
tourists watch entranced the effect of the waters on the rocky
sides. Here and there, seemingly
tired of the effort to stand upright
through the centuries, the sides of
the gorge appear to have leaned
toward one another, until an intervening rock cast itself into the narrow space and held the walls apart.
Trunks of trees and jutting rocks
form footbridges across the chasm
a hundred feet below the tourists'
feet, as they stand admiring the
glint of the noon-day sun upon the
falling water.

holes have been ground into thc
surface of' the rock, remaining as
mute testimony to the power of
rusl ing waters.
Maligne Canyon, while one of the
most wonderful formations to be
found in the Rocky Mountains, is
but one of the many natural attractions of Jasper National Park
In addition there are thc snowcapped peaks on every side; the
«Iaciers of Mount Edith Cavell and
The Canyon in Winter
the mountains surrounding Maligne Lake, the Hoodoos of the
Cavell motor highway and hundreds of others. Wild animal life
is abundant, and the calm peace of
the out-of-doors is assured to the
tired holidayrseeker.
And in addition to thc natural
beauties of the Park, a commodious
log cabin bungalow hotel; with excellent cuisine and all the comforts
of the modern city hotel, provides
a starting point from which parties
may radiate by motor or pack-
horse or afoot to travel by motor
road or pack trail into the very
heart of the wilderness. It was
the ddition of the comforts and
conveniences of Jasper Park Lodge
to the beauties of Jasper National
Park which caused one noted
American traveller to exclaim: "At
last. I have found the place, whore
God and man go fifty-fifty to
produce perfection."
