Suppose Tour
Car War- Stolen
Could you Identify your car if it
had been stolen and recovered by
the police? Tou could? But that
is what all owners say. And yet
when they see their bus—what they
think ls their car—in the police
garage, why it is a ten to one btt
that they cannot identify it: The
police prove it time and time again.
As a matter of fact most car owners depend for identification on some
scratch on the body, some broken
screw in the chassis or some equally
uncertain factor. They do not stop
to consider that our big manufacturers are turning out models in ten
thousand lots that differ from: each
other in not the slightest discernible
degree. By tbe time a successful
thief has run a stolen car through
his "service station" it would puz le
the. most careful owntr on earth to
identify his vehicle.
The only safe method, of placing
identification marks on a car is to
place them on all major parts of the
mechanist.. Perhaps the most satisfactory method of doing .so is to
place punch marks on the various
units. All such farks should be put
In places- where they will not be
readily discernible; for instance, on
the Inside of the axles! on the. flywheels, on the upper side of the
gearset houseing. After the marks
have been fade they should be rubbed over with grease until they are
nearly Indlsdlstlnguishable as possible. The car owner lean have a
prick punch made with his Initials
on it ih very fine type and with this
it is possible to place identification
marks on the various parts that will
generally escape notice ahd yet remain  permanently.
Another clever, idea is to bore a
few small holes a mere f radio*" of
an inch into the framework at a
given place carefully measured from
permanently located landmark.
Then fill these holes with lead and
smear the spot well with grease. If
there comes a time when it is necessary to identify the car, it is a simple matter to measure off the proper
distance, scrape a little lead off and
prove ownership of the car.
The Individual owner can prlbably
find a dozen distinctive ways of
marking his car for possible identification, but the point Is that, this
should be done! because when a car
has been stolen the police demand
something more than say-so on the
part of the owner before they return
it to him.

They have been busy with Carnarvon
castle, trying to rob it of its most
cherished tradition; but since the
present bearer of the Ititle thought
there was sufficient basis for the
story to warrant his investiture in
this castle in 1911, we shall prefer to
accept the legend that here was born
the flrst English prince of Wales, 639
j years ago. ■- 22
The story ls a familiar'one. During
the reign of Edward I the Welsh rose
against the English, declaring that
they would never acknowledge alle-.
glance to any prince but of tbeir own
nation and languag, and of an unblamable life.
Edward brought his army to Wales
and put down the rebellion led by
Llewelyn the Last. He then eommis
sioned his famous architect, Henry
de Elreton, to build castles at Con-
Way, Carnarvon, Criccieth and Harlech, as strongholds from which in
future he might hold his turbulent
subjects in check.
During his long stay in Wales, Edward's sueen, Eleanor, visited him at
Carnarvon, and in a small room in
the so-called Eagle tower of the unfinished castle be who was to be Edward II was born.

to those ot the ancient Greeks, except that here the competition is exclusively intellectual and artistic,
with no place for athletics on the
The national Eisteddfod has been
held annually since 1819, in northern
Wales and southern Wales alternately.
One ot the spectacular feats at an
Eisteddfod is the "pennlllion" singing, in which the poets compose their
songs after the harpist has begun
his melody. Each poet in turn sings
his verse, beginning two measures
behind the harpist, but ending-on the
same measure. The contestant who

Victoria, March, 30.—The new
marketing legislation designed to
control markets for the fruit of this
province will be in operation by the
end ot April, under plans which are
being pressed forward by the fruit
growers in cooperation with the department of agriculture here.
The new board which will administer the law and seek to control
fruit markets will be established almost immediately following the appointment of two members by the
growers and tlte chairman by the
gbvernmienj-. The representative of
the cooperative growers already has
been named, and the Independent
interests will name their member
during the next day or two. The
government's appointee will be
named without delay.
.Meanwhile the board administering the women's minimum wage law
is considering new regulations governing the employment of women in
fruit packing houses.
The board fixed the minimum
wage for these workers last year at
$14 a week, but the employers contend that an inflexible scale of this
sort is unsatisfactory in their business.
A representative of the board may
go to California to investigate conditions among the fruit packers there.

"A mockery and a snare." With this well-known phrase
two famous names are closely connected, those of .the. Irish
'ILlberator," Daniel O'Connell and Lord Chief Justice
Denman. Most people know thut O'Connell started the
agitation wbicji ended ln the definite establishment of the
Irish Free State. O'Connell had been the chief agent in
stirring up the Irish people to demand the repeal of the
union. For this be was brought to trial hy Sir Robert
Peel's government, and a jury found bim guilty. The
case was eventually carried to the house of lords, and lt
was at this juncture that the paths of these two great men
crossed. (Dennum was a little youngen than O'Connell
and was at that time the greatest lawyer ln the land. He
was a fine orator, and eventually became lord chief justice. Lord Denman presided over the house of lords tribunal in the famous case of "O'Connell and Others v. the
Queen" in 1844, and in giving judgment which reversed
the earlier one and released O'Connell, he said: "If it is
possible that such a practice ac that which has taken
place in the present instance should be allowed to pass
without a remedy (and no other remedy has been suggested), trial by jury, instead of being a security to persons who are accused, iwill be a delusion, a mockery, and
a snare.
Perhaps there is only one man in America who has
spanked a grizzly bear. This is Col. C. J. Jones, former
superintendent of wild animals at Yellowstone park.
Ool. JJones, according to W. T. Hornaday, in his book,
"The Minds aud Manners of Wild Animals," decided tu
punish the gri zly for the latter's many offenses against
tourists visi ing the park. The grizzly would raid the
tourists' camps, scare the occupants out of their lives and
then make off with whatever food it could seize. The
colonel roped the grizzly around one of the hind legs and
suspendedhim from the limb of a tree. "While the disgraced and outraged silvertip swung to and fro, bawling,
cursing, snapping, snorting and wildly clawing at the air,
Col. Jones whaled it with a bean ipole until he was tired,"
writes Doctor Hornaday. The spanking produced the
desired effect. 'When the grizzly was turned loose it did

A fine specimen of the very rare red diamond has been

a carat. It was cut to a flawless stone about six carats
in weight. The biggest "rush" to peg claims in the history of alluvial diamond digging in the western Transvaal

London hears from Calcutta that a village has been purchased naar Baroda by a Oindu millionaire and turned
into a settlement for vegetarian dogs. It is called Kutta
Nagar, kutta being the Hindu word for dog and nagar for
city. The millionaire belongs to a Hindu sect which absolutely discontenances the killing of any living being in
any form, and he founded his dog-town in order to wean
away fierce Indian canines from their instinct of killing.
All the dogs in the settlement are fed on rice, wheat,
milk and butter. No animal food whatever is given them.
Puppies are fed on semolina liquefied by clarified butter
mixed with sugar. On reaching three months of age they
are given oiled and salted wheat bread. According to
apparently authentic reports, the dogs are strong and
healthy and the millionaire vegetarian hopes to breed a
new type of dog in which the instinct for blood will have
been eradicated.   Mice are not allowed ln the village.

In defense of the supposedly superstitions of fishermen,
Lorenzo Sabine, in 1853, ln an article on the American
fisherman, wrote: "Ht, is said that he is credulous and
superstitious. Admit that Kidd's money haa been dug
for in every dark nook on the coast, or talked about in
every cuddy for a century and a half, and that horseshoes
are nailed upon the masts of fishing vessels to keep off
witches; what then? Is he the only one wlho has been
or still ls guilty of the same -follies?? Inln 1826 the
Duchess de Berrl visited a watering [place ln France and
indulged in sea bathing. Sajt water and flsh Which were
afterward taken from the spot wei-e articles of Immense
value and sold at enormous prices. Indeed; those persons
who could not purchase a whole flsh gladly possessed
themselves of a few scales or a finl The water whiere
the royal person had been washed, when 'bottled and'offered for sale, was known as 'Berrl wine.' Have any flsh
ermen committed greater follies than these fashionable
people ot France?" Ooodfor Lorenzo! Today horseshoes
are bo scarce that fishermen no longer uail them to 'the
masts to keep offwitches, although they do hang uSed
automobile casings over the side to keep off other craft
that might rub their planking.    .

Th' affrighted sun ere while he fled,
And hid his radiant face In night;
A cheerless glom thel world o'erspread—
But Harun came, and all was bright.    *
Again the sun shoots forth its rays
Nature Is deck'd ln beauty's robe—
For mighty Harun's sceptre sways.
And Yahia's arm sustains the globe.

Selection of Dairy Cattle Breeds
Influenced by Shows
A feed typical Ayrshire itr.
Many a man who Is undecided as
to the breed of dairy cattle that he
will select has been. Influenced In
making his decision by tho animals!
of a particular breed that ho has
seen ir public.
The Individual breeder secures a
great deal of advertising as the result of exhibiting at fairs, or In offering sood animals at public sales,
lt. -fives people a chance to see and
ItnpW the kind of stock that a man Is
breeding and paves the way for future business.
Tt i£ essential that special care and
attention be given dairy animals far
In advance of tlle time that they are
to be exhibited or sold. Exhibiting
or selling animals publicly in their
every day clothes Is poor advertising
and puts them at a disadvantage
ivhen the competition is keen. It
takes several weeks to put a dairy
animal in good show condition and
what applies to fitting for sh6w applies as well to fitting for sale.
It ls Important that the dairy animal to be exhibited oi- sold be In
good flesh. A good covering of flesh
adds tii size, increases, smoothness
/ and InrVoates that the animal Is
thrifty end In good health. Dairy
inimals i.elng fitted need extra feed.
Stabling and blanketing are great
aids In putting the hair and hide ln
condition (fj-ly stabling In summer,

PMtUno m the llnisrtitiii lotchei
provides desirable qunrters. Continuous blanketing helps keep the animal clean, sweats tho hide, thus Improving Its handling qualities and
makes the hair lay to the hody. The
I lanket need not be expensive but
It must be tied on securely.
Every dairy animal that ts to be
exhibited should have the hair
clipped from the entire body about
three weeks previous to the date of
the show or pale. This will get rid
of the old hair and allow a new,
even growth to develop which will
greatly Improve the appearance and
Increase the selling' value of the
A point often overlooked in the
preparation of a dairy animal for
show or sale Is that of training to
lead and stand properly. An untrained animal cannot display Its
good points to advantage lf it combats the el'orts of the attendant to
exhibit It properly. A little time
spent each day in training to handle
properly will save effort and embarrassment at the show or sale and
Increase the financial return.~
Whllo In the show or sale ring, the
man In charge of an animal should
have one main thought In mind,
namely that of showing the animal
to advantage. By this Is meant that
t.hen It stands, Its feet are properly
placed, back straight and head an.rt.
.A ny movement on the part of the attendant or animal should be as
i-raocful as possible. Until the ribbons are placed or the auctioneer's
l.-u.nicr falls, take no chances
