FOUL JEMS
Attempt Made to Convict
Hon.  Mr.   Oliver   on
Forged Evidence
It would be uncharitable to impute
motives of a sinister kind to the instigator of the present insinuative
calumnies against the honor and integrity of Hon. Frank Oliver, and hi*
folly can best be attributed to hig disappointment in life, which may have
been sufficiently oppressive to make
him politically sore. We have known
men who have attempted that which
was impossible in the way of patron-
nge, and their disappointment has left
them with a grudge which accounted
f ir years of after grouching. The persistency, however, with which most of
the Conservative organs repeat the insinuations, elaborate the -fictitious
grounds upon which these are based
and keep up their continuous farce
performance is a weariness to the
flesh. Kvery one knows, of course,
that the alleged photographs of a bank
account ot the minister were denied
authenticity by the manager of the
bank in question, but the method by
which this seemingly convincing fraud
wat perpetrated it not generally
known. We htd not seen in print, until the trrivtl of the Monetary Timet
of Toronto, an explanation of the
method by which the dishonorable con-
nivers in this gigantic fraud carried
out their nefarious purpose to slander
a public man fer personal and politi
cal ends. The Monetary Times piques
itself on its record as a non-political
paper, but explains that the attack on
Hon. Mr. Oliver is of a kind the last
of which might be expected. It sayt
it regards Mr. Oliver as one of the
strong men of the Dominion, a man
who has octually hewed his way as a
pioneer across the prairie and as a
statesman through the labyrinth of
politics, It then takes up the question of the forgery, and for the firat
time discloses what ia known of the
mode of procedure.    We   read its ac-
most emphatic terms was oot an exact photograph of Mr. Oliver's account, at had been stated. A comparison of the original with the spurious at once revealed this fact." With
this generally knowu, aa it must be
throughout the east, it is extremely
difficult to excuse the misconduct of
the rabble political press that is
hounding Mr. Oliver and demanding
that he accouut for the moneys which
the fake bank account says he received It is sometimes necessary to
resort to detective methods in order
to secure evidence against a criminal,
but the sleuth who manufactures evidence in order to make a case is one
of the most contemptible and despicable of all the human cattle allowed
to live. ' There is nothing for him
anywhere in decent society but execration. And to say that "there-is a
principle involved" in the demand
that Mr. Oliver should disclose where
he got this money is to compel the
question as to what principle is involved. It is bad enough' to manufacture evidence and resort to crime
in order tu convict an outlaw who is
-known to be such, but to resort to
forgery in order to attach suspicion to
the name of a public man whose honor
is as dear to him as life, is beneath
contempt. The yelping pack of newspaper hounds who are baying at Mr.
Oliver's shadow when they know how
slender is the thread of insinuation
by which they connect him with malfeasance in office are simply proclaiming theit hypocrisy to the world, and
to'talk about principle being involved
in a matter of this sort is a false
alarm. It is fortunate that these
things happen in time to show the
desperate hanger of the opposition
for the place and power of office.
Their estimate of Mr Oliver is a safe
guide to what they may be expected
to do themselves if they should ever
come into possession of the treasury
benches. And their resort to such
dernier methisls to gain office is a safe
index to the quality of the "principle"
that will be requisitioned in their administration.—Victoria Times.

F
Grauby Company Will Resume Operations About
June 15
The outlook for the mining industry in the Boundary district is decidedly brighter than it waB a week
ago. At that time a long shutdown of the smelter in this city and
the mines in Phoenix, owing to
coke shortage, appeared to be inevitable. Since that time, however,
tbe G/anby management has decided to procure eastern coke until
the strike of the coal miners in the
East Kootenay is settled. The first,
shipment has already left Pennsylvania, and it is expected that it will
arrive at tbe smelter in thiB city
about the 10th of next month.
After that the eastern coke will arrive here regularly until the Crow's
Nest strike is ended.
The mines at Phoenix were closed
down on Monday, and tbe last four
furnaces at the smelter in this city
were blown out yesterday, tbe 20,-
000 tons of surplus coke having
been used up. Notices have been
posted in Phoenix that operations
in the mines will be resumed June
15. The smelter will likely blow in
a few days later.

(Continued.)
It was not long after breakfast on
the following morning that Venner
walked into Gurdon's rooms with a
new proposal.
"I have been thinking out this confounded thing," he said. "I have an
idea; as you know, the house where
you had your adventure the other
night is empty, it has occurred to me
that perhaps it may be to let. If so
we are going to call upon the agent
in the characters of prospective tenants. What I want to do is to ascertain if possible the name of the owner of the premises."
"I see," Gurdon said thoughtfully.
"I am ready for you now."
It was some little time beiore the
friends got on the right track, but
they found the right man nt length.
The agent was not quite 6ure whether
he was in. a position at present to
make any definite arrangements on
the part of the owner. *
"I presume he wants to let the
house," he said, "though I have no
instructions, and it is some considerable time sinee I have heard from my
client.   You see, he lives abroad."
"Can't you give us his address,"
Venner asked, "and let us write to
him direct?   It would save time."
"That, I fear, is equally impossible," the agent explained. "My client
wanders about from place to place,
and I haven't the remotest idea where
to find him. However, I'll do my
best."
"You might telj us his name," Venner said.
"Certainly. His name is Mr. La
Fenu."
"What do you make of it?" Venner
said, when once more he and Gurdon
were in the street. "I see you have
forgotten what, the name of Le Fenu
implies. Don't you remember my
telling you that the original owner
of the* Four Finger Mine who was
murdered by the Dutchman, Van
Fort, was called Le Fenu?"
CHAPTER XI.
An Unexpected Movt.
On the whole thc discovery was
startling enough. It proved to dem
onstration that the man who called
himself Bates must have been in sn.ne
way connected with the one time unfortunate owner of the Four Finger
Mine. There was very little said as
the two friends walked down the
street together. Venner paused presently, and stood as if an idea had occurred to him.
"I have a notion that something
will come of this," he said. "I had t
great mind to go back to the agent's
and try to get the Jcey of the empty
house under some pretext or other."
"What do you want lt for?" Gurdon  asked.
"I am not sure that I want it for
anything," Venner admitted. "I have
a vague idea, a shadowy theory, that
I am on the right track,at last, but
I may be wrong, especially as I am
dealing with so unscrupulous an opponent as Fenwick. All the same, I
think I '11 step round to that agent'*
office this afternoon nnd get the key.
Sooner or later I shall wnnt a town
house and I don't see why that Portsmouth Square place shouldn't suit
me very well."
Venner was true to his intention,
and later in the afternoon was once
more closeted with the agent.
"Do you re*tl]y want to .ct tha
place?" he asked.
"Well, upon my word, sir, I'm not
quite sure," the agent replied. "As
I snid before, it is such a difficult
matter to get ill contact with the
Owner."
"Bui unless he wnnled to let it,
why did he put it into your hands"?"
Venner asked. "Still, you cm try to
communicnte with him, and it will
save time if yon let nn* have Uu* keys
lo take measurements ami get esti-
males lor til" decorating and so ap.
I will give you any references you
require."
"Oh, there ean be nn objection to
that," the agent replied. "Yes, you
can have the k'-ys now if vou like.
You are not in thc least likely to run
away wilh the plnce."
Venner departed presently with the
keys ill his possession, and made his
way bnck to the hotel, He had hardly
Teached his own room when n waiter
came in with a note for him. It was
from Vera, with nn urgent request
that Venner wonld see her at once,
tnd an intimation thnt there would
be no danger in his going np to the
suite of rooms occupied by Mark
Fenwick. Venner lost no time in answering this message. He fell vague-
ly uneasy and alarmed. Surely there
must bc .something wrong, or Vera
would not have sent for him in "lis
sudden mnnn**r. He could not quite
set either, how It was thnt he could
cull at Fenwick's rooms without risk.
However he hesitntcd no longer hut
knocked al the outer door of the self-
contained rooms, which summons wns
presently answered by Vern herself.
"You ean come in," sh** s<*id. "I
am absolutely alone.     Mr. Fenwick
has gone off in a great hurry with
all his assistants, and my own maid
will not be back for some time."
"But is there no chance of Fenwick
coming back?" Venner asked. "If
he caught me here now, all my plans
would be ruined. My dearest girl,
why don't you leave him and come to
me? I declare it makes me miserable
to know that you are constantly in
contact with such a man as thai. It
isn't as if you were any relation to
him."
"Thank goodness, I am no relation
at all," Vera replied. "It is not for
my own sake that I endure all this
humiliation."
"Then, why endure it?" Venner
urged.
"Because I cannot help mys?lf. Because Hhere is someone else whom I
have to look after and shield from
harm. Some day you will know the
whole truth but not yet, because my
lips nre soaled. But I did not hring
you here to talk about myself. There
ere other and more urgent matters. I
am perfectly sure that something very
wrong is going on here. Not long after breakfast this morning, Mr. Fenwick was sitting here reading the pnper, when he suddenly rose in a state
of great agitation and began sending*,
telegramc right and left. I am certain thnt there was terribly disturbing intelligence in that paper; but
what it was, I, of course, cannot say.
I have looked everywhere for a clue
and all in vain. No sooner were the
telegrams dispatched than the three
or four men here, whom Mr. F°nwick
calls, his clerks, gathered all his papers and things together and sent
them off by express vans. Mr, Fenwick told me that everything was go.
ing to the place that he had taken at
Canterbury, but I don't believe that
because none of the boxes were labelled. Anyway they have all gone, and
I am to remain here until I hear
from  Mr.  Fenwick again.'"
Venner began to understand; in the
light of his superior knowledge it was
plain to him that these men had
been interrupted in some work, and
tbat they feared the grip of the law.
He expressed a wish to see the paper
which had been the cause of the
trouble. The news-sheet lay on the
floor wher? Fenwick had thrown it
and Venner took it up in his hands.
"This has not been disturbed?" he
asked.
"No," Vera replied. "I thought it
best not to. I hove looked nt, both
sidns of the pnper myself, but I have
not turned over a leaf. You see, it
must have been on one side cr another of. this sheet that the disturbing
news appeared, and that is why I
have not looked f"rther. Perhaps you
will be able to pick out the particular
paragraph. Th"re is plenty of time.'
Very carefully Venner scanned the
columns of the paper. He came at
length to something that seemed to
hini to bear rpon the sudden change
of plans which apn°nred to have been
forced upon Fenwick. The paragraph
in que tion was not n long one, and
emanated from the New York cor-
respondent of the Daily Herald.
"We are informed," the paragraph
ran, "that the police here believe
they are on the track of the clever
gang of international swindlers who
were so succesful in their bank forgeries two yeers ago. Naturally enough
the authorities are very reticent as
to names, and other details, but they
declare that they have made a discovery which embraces what is practically a new crime, or, at any rate,
a very ingenious variant upon an old
one. As far as we can understand,
thj police were first put upon the
track by the discovery of the fact
that the hend of the gang hnd recently transported some boxes of gold
dust to London. Quite by accident
this discovery was made, and the
police were at flrst under the impression thnt the gold had been stolen.
When, however, they had proven beyond the shadow of a doubt that the
gold in question wns the property of
the gang, they naturally began to
ask th"mBelves what it wns intended
for. As the metal could be so easily
transferred into cssh, what was l-Ji»
object of thc ca^g in taking the cold
to Europe? This ouestion th" Head
of the Criniinn', Investigation Denart-
ment f"els sure that he has successfully solved. The nuhlje may look
for startling developments befnrs
long. Meanwhile two nf the smartest deteoti,-es in New York ere on
their way to Furon" nnd ar> coveted
to reach Liverpool by the Umbria today,"
"There i« the source of the trouble"
Venner said. "1 hardly core about
telling you how I know, because the
less information you hnve on tills
h"ad the b"tter. And I don't want
your face to betray you to the sharp
eyes ol Mark Fenwick. But I am absolutely certain thnt that pnrngrnph
is the source of all the mischief."
"I daresay it is," Vera sighed. "I
feel so terribly lonely and frightened
sometimes, so afraid of something terrible hnppenins. that I feel inclined
to run away nnd hide myself. What
shall I do now, though 1 am afraid
you cannot help tne.'"
"I ean help you in a wav you little
drenm of," Venner snid through his
teeth. "For the present, at any rate,
you had better do exactly as Fenwick
tells you. I nm not going to leave
you here nil njopc when wc hnve n
chance like this; nfter dinner, I nm
going to take you to u theatre. Meanwhile, T must leave you now, ns I
have much work to do, and there is
no time to be lost. It will be no
fnult of mine if you nr*> not absolute-
ly free from Mark Fenwick before
many days have passed."
Venner sat alone at dinner, keeping
a critical eye open for whatever migh*
be going on around him. He ht.'!
made one or two little cal •illations as
to time and distance, and, unless his
arithmetic was very far oat, he expected to learn something useful before midnight.
The meal had not proceeded Very
far when two strangers came in and
took their places at a table close by.
They were in evening dress and appeared to be absolutely at home, yet,
in some subtle way they differed materially from the other diners about
them. On the whole, they might
have passed for two mining engineers
who had just touched civilisation after a long lapse of time. Venner noticed that they both ate nnd drank
sparingly and that they seemed to get
through their dinner as speedily as
possible. They went off to the lounge
presently to smoke over their coffee,
and Venner followed them. He dropped into a seat by their side.
"You have forgotten me, Mr. Egan"
he said to the smaller of the two men.
"Don't you remember that night in
the Bowery when I was fortunate
enough to help you lay hands on the
notorious James Daley? You were in
rather a tight place, I remember.'
"Bless me, if it isn't Mr. Venner."
the other cried. "This is my friend,
Grady. I daresay you have heard of
him."
"Of course I have," Venner replied
"Mr. Grady is quite ns celebrated in
his way as you arc yourself. But you
see, there was a time when I took a
keen interest in crime and criminals
and some of my experiences in New
York would make a respectable volume.  When  I heard that you were
coming over here ■"
"You heard we were coming here?"
Egan said significantly. "I should
very much like to know how you
heard that."
"Oh you needn't be alarmed," Venner laughed. "Nobody has betrayed
your secret mission, though strangely
enough, I fancy I shall be in a position to give you some considerable
assistance. I happened to see a paragraph in the Herald today alluding
to a mysterious gang of swindlers
who had hit upon a novel form of
crime—something to do with gold
dust, I believe it was. At the end
of the paragraph it stated that two
of the smartest detectives in the New
York force were coming over here,
and therefore it was quite fair to infer that you might be one of them.
In any .case, if you had not been, I
could have introduced myself to your
colleagues and used your name."

An Immente Undertaking.
Canada, appreciating at last the vast
possibilities of her great territories, is
beginning to do things on a large
scale. The latest proposition is to
build a model highway from Winnipeg
to Vancouver. If this work is curried
to completion, it till serve as a shining example to **hu dincij les of the'

conceivtble difficulty, and should encourage road building in this country,
where no such difficulties must be
ov. iconic.
The road will traverse the provinces.
of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta,
ami British Columbia, and will cross
soii.e of the roughest 'parts of the
Rocky Mountains. The plans, which
have not yet been adopted hy the various provinces, were originated by
the Minister of Public Works of British Columbia. He feels that the undertaking would be of large valut to

CHOLERA III INDIA.
Htw Mahomtdint Seek  tt Avert tits
Dretd Plague.
During the past century cholera has
made frequent rtvtges in India.
which this year alto has crept into
the valley silently along with tht
Hindu pilgrims, ash-besmeared ta-
kirs. little children, men and women
from every part of India on their way
up to the sacred eaves of Amarnath
—which are situated In the snow-
covered mountains at the top of the
vnlley—either by the pass over the
Pir Panjal range or along the 12S
miles of road which lesds here from
the nearest railroad station, Rawal
Pindi. in the Punjab.
Despatches describe the methods to
avert the cholera f.dopted by these
semi-developed Mahomedans, who
hnve many superstitions, more of a
Hindu character than in accordanece
with the faith they profess to follow.
A small pnrty of men and women
pnrnde up and down following some
leader? with a long pole from the top
of which flutters t small triangular
flag, the very shape of which is Hindu, and a couple of tom-toms; this <s
to invoke the aid of some of the many
saints these people worship. The
fact that the pilgrims carry "chatis"
is due to a brilliant notion arrived
at by the chief "mullah," or priest,
of a mosque situated on the hill
crowned by the fort of Akhar, whieh
'is seen in the distance. He had a
vision this year, and in consequence
it was noised abroad that the tank
of the holy edifice, which had lain
parched and dry for some time, must
be filled if the cholera were to be
subdued. So inhabitants from villages - far and near flocked to the
capital carrying "gurrabs" of water,
which were emptied into the holy
tank whether they had' been brought
from some badly-infected district or
not. Each villager, feeling that he
had tone all in hit power to avert
the calamity, returned happily
enough, little realising thnt perhaps
he was destined to die on his several
days' mnrch hack or was carrvlnc infection to his hitherto unaffected
home from this city cf mud-roofed
houses, in which dwell huddled to-
gethe- some 120,000 exceedingly dirty
inhabitants.
What can a civilised nation do
(writes our correspondent) to help
such ignorant wretches, who will go
down to the river, wash themselves
and their clothes, throw all refuse
into it, and then drink of its water
in preference to that brought through
pipes clean and pure, direct from the
»nows, to their very doors?
The Fatteh Kadi is very typical
of those in Kashmir. Built up entirely of timber and the foundations
of the piers being bolts Allied with
stones to sink them to the bed of the
river, the skeleton structure stands
the strain particularly well when the
river rises to flood level.
The quaint spired building in the
distance is the great mosque of Shah
Hamadan, a Mahomedan saint ol
repute who established Islam in the
valley. His brief martyrdom seems
to have taken pltee on his return
journey from Kashmir; it is said that
after his death his coffin miraculously completed tbe journey to Kuttan
in Persia by itself. He was poisoned,
one may surmise, by someone who
resented his having converted the
Hindu priest of the indent temple
on the site of which the mosque
stands.
How to Grew Rich.
Many years ago there were few better known characters in Manchester
than Mr. S. Brooke, the wealthy and
eccentric banker. Of "Sam Brooke"
innumerable stories were told, illustrative of his acuteness or his waggery.
One day, as he wit seated on the
knife lion rd of tn omnibus, he was
joined by an acquaintance who, years
before, had been one of his schoolfellows. After some general conversation his companion said:
"Mr. Brooke, there ia one thing I
very much want to ask you."
**Ah. what is that?"
"Well, all through your career
everything you hive touched hat
teemed to turn to gold. My experience, unfortunately, hit been precisely the opposite. Now, whit I want
to know is—your secret."
. "My secret," replied the banker,
with a knowing look. "You don't suppose I am going to tell you that lor
nothing. But I will tell you what I
will do. Give me t sovereign ind you
shall hear it.   It Ii worth thst."
"Oh, Mr. Brooke, you a:e joking."
"No, I am not. If you want to know
m- secret, there are the terms."
Finally his interlocuter hesitatingly
drew out the coin, which was promptly pocketed.
"Now," slid the banker, "you have
paid for my secret, and you shall
have it. It is in t nutshell. I never
spend a shilling till I htvt made
half t crown."

Dodges   Which   Have    Mads
Charges Celebrated.
The army horse is diplomatic, if
not positively artful, and one could
fill pages with anecdotes of him.
One old chap, nicknamed "The Day
alter Tomorrow," because he was*
never anxious to associate himself
with the day's routine, but wou'.d
have much preferred to put it off, was
right down clever.
The exercises of the morning did
not appeal to him in any way, and
he easily became absolved from participation in them on account of an
artful habit of suddenly appearing
lame. The Rough Riding drill instructor was absolutely deceived by
this clever old horse. Immediately
he wa.- safely outside the riding
ichool, he would run to his stable
without the slightest trace of foot
trouble.
To tell the time is a new feature
in equine education, but this was a
feat for which another knowing old
horse was res;>onsible. By looking
out of a little window just above his
manger, he could seo tbe church
clock, end he acquired his information in conseo.uence of a habit indulged in by his groom of jumping upon
the manj?r to see how near feeding
time it was.
A new groom wns substitute later
on, and ns he was unacquainted with
the "medus operandi" of his predecessor, he did not jump upon the manger
to look nt the clock. This remissness
thoroughly disconcerted the old horse.
When it was nearing one o'clock, the
animal would become restless and,
straining his neck, would ook through
the window to get a glimpse of the
dock. Just on the tick of the hour
he wou'.d have a final look, and in
pure desperation would commence
pawing, scraping, and kicking. The
other horses, taking the cue from him,
would join in the business until the
stable was a veritable pandemonium.
Immediately the trumpeter would
sound "Feed" the commotion would
cease.
A' notorious old thief was ' Bag and
Bones." It U generally suppossd he
acquired this nickname through a
propensity for biting. He would tear
the shirt off a grnom's back in a jiffy,
and he was in no way particular as
to how much of the unfortunate fellow's anatomy became d"tached with
it. His speciality, however, was in
robbing spare mangers "i their ton-
tents wheS nobody was about. He hsd
a queer knack of slipping his headstall and going upon a piratical expedition, and anything in spare mangers was duly obser-ed and disposed
of If he heard footsteps, lie wou.d
immediately relinquish his burglar-
ing, and stealthily—you might say on
tiptoe-steal back to his stall. Thieving was a fine art with "Rag and
Bones." He would purloin anything
whilst Tommy was indulging in forty
winks. One afternoon he idled to his
stomach's  contents  a couple of old
shirts,  the  lees  of  a few  discorded
socks, half a bath-brick, a lump of
beeswax, a steel burnisher, a few
regimental cap-bands, uear'.y half an
ounce of Irish twist, an old cloy pipe,
and a box of motche*.
Another artful rogue, known by
Tommy as "The Old Soldier," was
gifted with the strategy of a "fighting
general," because of i*. stron? aversion
to the riding sohool. His tactics
were to turn suddenly into the centre
of the school, duck his head down between his knees, double himself up
like a cricket ball, and slip thc rider
over his neck as sracefully as an aero,
bat performing in a circus. He could
tell with unerring instinct when he
had a recruit on his back. Ae repetition of tlliis trick would release him
from the fatguing exercise, and finally he was sent home to his stable.

He maintained tljat there was

the United States and Great

FRIDAY, MAY 26,  1911
The Sl'N has been informed
that the Canadian Pacific railway has not yet selected its di
visional point between Nelson
and Penticton. Grand Forks
i.s equi-distant between the
two points. We are in possession of information that
leads us to believe that this
city can secure the coveted
prize. But it will not be
handed to us on a gold plate
without an eft'oi t on our part.
A divisional point here would
easily mean an addition of two
thousand people to the city's
population, and the railway
company naturally expects
some concession for bestowing
this favor. Grand Forks is
not in a position at present to
give a cash or land bonus.
The railway company is aware
of this fact, and does not expect it. There are other considerations, however, that would
entail no financial hardship
on the city, which might prove
as acceptable to the company
as cask For instance, exemption from taxation of the
company's property in this
city for a number of years
would not be a burden on the
citizens, and yet be equivalent
to cash to the company. One
person has assured us that if
lie had the authority from the
city to offer the company exemption from taxation for ten
years, the railway would decide in favor of Grand Forks
within a week., But no one
in the city is now authorized to
make such a proposition; and
it is to obtain the sentiment
of the citizens on this subject,
and to delegate this authority
to some person, that immediate action i.s required. The
Sun would suggest that the
matter be taken up at once
liy the board of trade, then liy
the city council, and, as a final
test of the feeling of the people on the sublect, a public
meeting might be called. By
this mode of procedure tliere
would be little* danger of taking action contrary to the will
of tht* people, and some definite plan of action would undoubtedly be crystallized.
The king has thanked the
members of the imperial conference for an expression of
loyalty. No news has yet
been received regarding the
fate of Premier McBride's
resolutions of loyalty. Evidently the British Columbia
delegation has not yet reached
the "foot ofthe throne."
Sib Edward (1 hev, foreign
secretary, in proposing the
toast "Anglo-American Arbitration" at the pilgrims' dinner in London, expressed
• pleasure at the arrival of the
draft of the treaty from Wash-
Tiie meetings of the city council
have now become so tiresome that
very few of the nldermen take the
trouble to attend, nnd if conditions
in this respect do not imprbve, the
mayor will soon be the whole show.
The aldermen cannot be blamed,
however. Unlike the newspaper reporters, they are not compelled to
be present. One-half of the present
administration's term is now marly
over, and its achievements can he
summed up very briefly: It has
succeeded in raising the city solicitor's salary; redeemed a few debentures through a third party, and tbe
balance of the time has apparently
heen consumed in experimenting
with new city clerks.
A woman created a sensation in Nfl-
son last week by appearing on Baker
street in a Im.em skirt. In the more
advanced city of Grand Forks such an
uninteresting incident would badly
cause a ripple of excitement. There
a.ie a few ladies here who have worn
the family trousers fur years.
PEN POINTS
Don't worry about parting
with a dollar. It doesn't go
very far.
A fellow's convictions soon
get rusty after he's married.
If every fellow in society
had "to show a quit claim for
his dress suit it would eliminate a lot of four Hushers.
A fellow always looks sim
pie when he meets somebody
that used to know his wife.
People may hire others to
bear their crosses, but they
cannot rent crowns.
Genuine religion loosens the
purse strings.
Anybody can find fault, but
it requires ability to be a
critic.
It is good philosophy to be
happy at all times. Cultivate
cheeriness and the whole year
will be one prolonged Christmas day.
Every man is thc architect
of his own fortune. But so
many of us draw bad plans.
A woman can always flatter
a man by asking his advice.
It's the man who uses his
head that "gets there, with
both feet.I'
Real piety is never perfunctory.
Salvation is notsoul salvage.
Phrenologist— Dear, me,
your bump of destructiveness
is very large. Are you a soldier?

' NEWSPAPER COMMENT
Hon. Richard McBride is reported
in the friendly press to have said in
his speech in his speech at Ottawa
that British Columbia was opposed to
reciprocity and that the more British
Columbians looked into it the more
they hated and detested it. This constant reiteration of British Columbia
Tories when they are away from home,
that British Columbia is opposed to
reciprocity is getting tiresome. It was
pointed out on this page several weeks
ago that there is nothing whatever
to indicate that British Columbia is
either overwhelmingly opposed to or
in fa*or of reciprocity. Not in the
press nor in public meetings nor in
any other way has a representative
expression of public opinion been
"overwhelmingly" made on either
side of this question, although Pre
inier McBride told a Minneapolis
newspaper man that British Columbia
was overwhelmingly opposed to it.
Mr. McBride and his energetic, but
somewhat erratic, attorney general
have gone across the continent and
spread hot ail yarns abdut the "over-
whelmingness" of the opposition, the
detestation of the ^populace to the
measure, the luin to this, that and
the other industry that would follow
io its wake and especially to the fruit
growing industry. Yet a convention
of Kootenay fruit growers is held in
Nelson, right in the midst where the
Nelson News, a paper in which the
premier is largely interested, has the
principal circulation, and there is not
a word said for npr against reciprocity
in that convention. The general tenor
of any expressions coming from the
lumber industry in this province is
more in favor of reciprocity than
against it. The fishing industry is
probably in favor of it. Asa whole
it has a great deal more to gain by
reciprocity than it conld possibly lose.
In some respects reciprocity will be a
help to the mining industry, and up
to date we have heard of no "we-
viewwith alarm" resolutions on the
question nf reciprocity from that industry. Then take the consumers.
Where has a body of householders, or
any organ representing them, rended
the air with shrieks of terror over
what reciprocity would do for them?
So we have four leading industries
and the bulk of the consume™ complacently* listening to the debate at
Ottawa, no one losing any sleep over
the matter, and yet Hon. Richard
and Hon. William are shaking the
earth in the east with their thunder-
ius denunciations of the treaty and
trying to make the innocent eastern
Tories believe that in British Columhia there is an impregnable stronghold
of public opinion in their favor as
against reciprocity.—Saturday Sunset.
Although there is a tendency among
the Doukhohors to drift away from
old customs, and the more or less
benevolent despotism of  Peter Vere
gin, Canadian law still has plenty of
trouble molding this peculiar people
to our moral standards. At the last
court sitting in York ton three Dou
khobors were adjudged guilty of
bigamy, and the statement is ma'de
that 20 per cent of the 7000 Doukho
borsin Canada could be convicted of
the same thing. They get into this
tangle by practising divorce by con
sent, for which they claim to find a
warrant in the Old Testament. They
do not consider it wrong any more
than laking off their clothes and making naked pilgrimages, to which madness they also give a religious sane
tion. Divorce by consent is an olrl
habit with the Doukhobors. They
brought it from Russia, and one of
Hist things they did when they came
to Canada was lo file an objection
with the Dominion government
against complying with Canadian reg
ulutions regarding marriage. This
objection was probably pigeonholed,
At any rate, the Doukhobors have
gone their own heedless way, with the
n t result that what we call bigamy is
with them not an unrespectable insli
tution. When a Doukhobor man
and woman separate, both parties are
held eligible for remarriage, the wo
map taking the name of her last male
associate and regarding the union as
quite valid. In shirt, the Doukhobor
marriuge is au olTagain-on again gone-
again-Finnegan sort of arrangement,
as facile almost as their courtships,
which the Regina Leader describes
this way: "Young men, dressed iu
their Sunday bsst, walk the trails in
the fall of the year, and visit various
villages to discover their affinities.
After a brief acquaintance, often not
of longer duration than two days, the
man proposes marriage, and, if the
girl consents, he returns home to report to his parents."—Collier's.

VARSITY RAGGING.
It It Now ■ Much Mora Artiitic and
Humorout Proceeding.
"Ragging," having lost the greater
part ol its ancient ferocity, has, in
modern days, been elevated to the
rank of a fine art on which any
amount of ingenuity and inventiou
can be exercised. In the old days,
says The Manchester Courier, nothing was easier than to punish an objectionable undergraduate by spreading jam all over his books, wrecking
his pictures and crockery, and depositing the fragments in his bed. Sometimes after such a courca had been
pursued it was the custom to raise a
subscription to offer contemptuous
payment for the damage done. Many
valuable pianos and pieces of furniture have been before now chopped
into firewood for bonfires.
Unpopular persons have been punished by tne shaving off of half their
moustaches, and frequently disliked
undergraduates, especially teetotallers, nave been ducked in beer. Al.
these methods are now things ol the
past, 'the uioaern "ragg.*r," as an
artist of a high degree oi ability uuJ
good nature, one may be giad ii,
mink, enters more completely into
these youthful ebullitions of spirit
borne unnuppy. "fresner" may nave
quite unconsciously offended against
tbe esprit de corps oi his college, and
the second-year men, who seem to
constitute themselves the peculiar
avengers of outraged college propriety,
—presumably on account of tneir recent emergence from the "fresher'
stage—decwe that his rooms must be
"rugged." ll will Ite advisable for the
treouuian in question, ii he gets wind
of tue propuea., to "make Uiuiseli
scarce" till execution ha_> been pui
in, in consequence of the judgiueut
passed.
Probably he will return to college
to hud his rooms in a condition of
hopeless, tbougn amusing disorder
Quite a brilliantly lugubrious eiieei
ean be couipasseu iu the first p.ace
by turning all the pictures mm tneir
faces to tne wall. One uniueay man
found several thin slices of breuu
aud but..r, carefully cut for alteriiuo.,

nis window. The bath is iouud ueal
ly hanging on the wall. All photographs and small ornament* 'are us

The coal-scuttle is filled with water

somewhat disconcerting to the nerves

Wine Jugs of Leather.
One does not usually think ol lentl.
er as a material with which engraver-
and sculptors could do effective work
and yet hundreds of years ago amor
ing results were obtained by artist*
who had the knowledge and the pati
ence io achieve success. Collector*
who have devoted their time to search
ing Ior leather art work have been
richly rewarded in Spain.
The leather made al Cordova ol do,
and goat skins gave that city n repu
tation which has endured until today
and this pliable material whs doubt
less the means ol enabling the Spnu {
ith leather workers to excel the craft- I
men in other lands.
During the sixteenth century, whe- :
'.he Spanish manikin wine jiigs wer
made, the art was al its height Otlt.ii
these manikins were ol an ironical pn
litical character or were satires on
leading ecclesiastical rulers.
These jugs were usually made oi
thin wood, wax or cement and wen
then covered with leather that had
been boiled to a pulp. The features
were then worked in aa desired. Th,
leather was allowed to harden nnd
was stained black nnd polished. They
thus became objects ol real beauty at
well as curiosities. Some ot these
wine jugs resemble polished ebony.

THE    BEST   MEDICINE
SO    MOTHERS   SAY
Mothers say Baby's Own Tablets
are the very best medicine they can
give their little ones. It is the happy
experience of one mother that helps
others to keep their little ones well.
Thousands of mothers have found the
Tablets a never failing cure for the
ailments that afflict their little ones.
Mrs. E. Sandwell. Coldwater,' Ont.
says:—"I find Baby's Own Tablets
the best medicine any mother can give
her little ones. I tried "soothing" mix-
tures but they did not help my baby,
but as soon as I began giving him the
Tablets they made his teething easy
and I would hardly know he was cutting a tooth. I would not be without
thc Tablets, and always recommend
them to my friends." Baby's Own
Tablets are sold by medicine dealers
or by mail at 25 cents a box from The

. HERJIIDHOOD
BUT     DODD'S     KIDNEY     PILLS
MADE MRS. LAPRAIRIE A
NEW WOMAN
Nipitsing   Lady gives an experience
that   should prove   of    immense
value to the suffering women of
Canada.
I.aprairicville, Nipissing District,
Ont. (Special).—After suffering from
various forms of kidney ills since she
wus a child, Mrs. O. Lnprairie is a
well woman nnd once more it has
been proved that no case of Kidney
Trouble is too severe or of too long
standing for Dodd's Kidney Pills to
cure.
Interviewed regarding her cure,
Mrs. I.aprairie said-.
"Since I wns twelve years of age I
have suffered from Kidney Disease. I
was always tired. My back would
nclie and I always had a sharp pain
in thc top'part of my head. My heart
also troubled me.
'Hearing of Dodd's Kidney Pills, I
gave them a trial, and now 1 feel like
a new woman."
Thousands of Canadian men and
women are feeling just ns Mrs. La-
prairie does—as if life had started all
over for them—just because they have
cured their kidneys wilh Dodd'B Kidney Pills. For thc kidneys nre tho
mainspring of life. If they arc clogged or out of order the whole body is
wrong. Dodd's Kidneys Pills always
put the kidneys in good working order.
"My denr," said a wife wbo had
heen married three years, as she
beamed across the table on her lord
and master, "tell mc what first attracted you to mc? What pleasant
characteristic did I possess which
placed me above other women in your
sight?"
And ber lord nnd master simply
said—"1 give it up."

A Pastoral Love
Affair
«f die Nairn*! and

By ARTHUR BEMERTON
Copyright by American Preaa Aaao-
atlon. uu.
Bessie and I fell In love, natural-
ly—In fact too naturally. I bave often thought how pleaaant it muat be
for the animal* and birds to mate
without bavlng to look Into each
otber'* record. A tiger may not only
kill a man. but eat bim and mate witb
a moat respectable tigress without any
question* being aaked. Two birds
may meet on tbe branch of a tree and
without tbe slightest knowledge of
each other become mates. But man
and woman muat not only know all
■bout eacb otber, but be of the name
grade and eacb hnve a clean record, or
there come* a lot of trouble.
And tbe moat singular tblng abont
It all Is tbat either of them will murder any animal, except tbeir own kind,
•nd eat the carcass.
I, being an artist, wben the buds
twere beginning to open went Into
tbe country to catch tbat lint delicate
■hade of pale green which appears on
tbe trees at tbat season. I was sitting
em my tripod In a wood working In tf*e
colors wben I beard rhe bark of a do**,
Md a moment later a little terrier
■tood growling at me. A girl, budding
like tbe trees, not Into leaves, but Into
womanhood, hurried np, calling In a
•oft voice:
"Frisk! Come away. Frisk! Wbat
do you mean?"
I paid no attention to tbe dog, and
tbere was no need for tbe girl to call
tlm off, for he bad no Idea of attacking me, bnt be gave me an excuse for
•ddresslng tbe girl.
And yet I question If any excuse
was required. People wbo meet ln
crowds are constrained by conventionalities. We two, meeting In a wood,
iwlth not a sound abont ns—wben tbe
dog bad ceased barking—except an occasional twitter of birds engaged In
•est building, felt constrained In another way. We were Impelled to be
companionable. I began by telling her
not to mind the dog, tbat be wouldn't
disturb me. and she (Idled around
where sbe could catch a view of my
■ketch. One thing led to another until
gre felt quite well acquainted. I bad
chosen a delightful spot to transfer to
canvas. It was on a declivity. An
opening In the tree* below revealed a
patch of landscape, wall* at my feet
gargled a stream, at thi* season well
■applied wltb water from snow* recently melted at higher altitudes. Tbe

"Sweetheart" I aaid to her one day,
"suppose the reply should come tbat I
tm an escaped defaulter, jailbird, murderer."
"I would not believe tbe itory."
"But yonr father would," I added
lententioualy.
One day, after having painted atone
In tbe wood, on leaving It I aaw something balf covered with shriveled
branchea and dead leaves. I examined It ind found tbe deed body of •
man. Horrified lest I might be implicated In a murder, I threw back
what 1 bad removed md wu ibout
to hurry away wben I aaw two men
coming for me. Within five minutes
I was on my way to tbe nearest police etatlon.
My antecedents were now net oo
much needed to enable me tn poiseea
my love as to preserve my neck. The
statu* bad changed a second time.
The case waa not now one of a father,
a girl and an unknown man, but a
father, • girl and an unknown man accused of murder. I sent at once a
note to Bessie, Informing ber of my
trouble, encouraging,ber to keep op ■
good heart and assuring ber of mjr Innocence. Receiving no reply, I concluded tbat ber father would not permit ber to send a reply.
Brooding la my cell, I could not hut
revert to tbe good old primeval times
I bave cited before wben a auttor
mlgbt kill as many of bla fellow be.
Ings as be pleased., without being objected to on- that score tor a sun-tii-
law. I bad killed no one, 1 was merely suspected of killing a man. And
if Bessie's father did not kill men be
killed tbe next grade of animal below
men—or otber men did the work for
him, which la Just aa criminal—and
devoured tbe flesh. It seemed to me
that the onlv logical beings nre the
beasts and the Wide. They kill and
eat each otber without Inquiring
whether or no they are eating tbe
same species, wbile man—well, this Is
what man does.
He kills and eats every animal below himself. To kill even one of bis
own kind he considers tbe greatest ot
crimes unless be kill* tbem In battle,
where the more men he kills the bigger man be is, which Is exactly what
mnde tbe chiefs among bis savage ancestors.
I was so Impressed with this reasoning that I asked my Jailer for writing
materials and wrote lt down, or, rather,
elaborated the bare skeleton 1 had
.thought out When It was finished 1
asked to have lt delivered to Bessie's
father.
Id due time a reply came as follows:
I hava alwaya desired my daughter to
marry a man distinguished for something. Artiste and poets ara usually distinguished for their Ideality. Tou, being
one of the kind, ahar* that distinction.
You may further lay claim to being tha
most Impracticable numskull that, to
my knowledge, tha world hat yet produced. Tou hava Interested me In yourself and your case. I bave retained tha
best criminal lawyer I can And to take
charge of your case, and If your Innocence it proved I than deem my daughter hoftored In wadding such an eminent
tool. •
This reply stung me to tbe quick.
I regarded it as tantamount to a refusal of bis daughter's hand even It
my innocence were proved. As to the
lawyer he spoke of hiring for me. I
wrote bim Immediately tbat I bad engaged the most eminent counsel lu tbe
land and would bave no need of the
one be bad retained;
What waa my surprise, wben I wa*
folding and addressing this second letter, to receive a visit from Bessie.
She threw herself Into ny arms
hysterically. 1 couldn't tell whether It
waa Joy or grief tbat moved ber.
When she became calmer 1 spoke of
her father's communication.
"Father bas turned light nround,"
she said.   "He's your friend forever."
"Really r
"Yes, really. He considers you Innocent of tbis clime with wblcb you
are charged. He says that 00 man
wbo could bave written that letter
could bave committed murder and If
be did be would convince tbe Judge
that tbere waa no case against bim,
since there Is no logical difference between killing a man and a steer."
"I am glad," I said, embracing ber.
"that In thousands of yeara one couple
may lu some respects return to tbe
natural methods ot our progenitors.
Are you quite sure your father ia sincere In bis change of mind toward
me?"
"I am. If be were not be would not
have permitted me to come bere to
visit you. He says you ure the flrst
man he ever met wbo did not talk and
act artificially. He'a simply delighted
with you."
I showed ber tbe note I bad written
declining ber father's offer of counsel.
She buret out laughing. I asked wbat
amused her.
"You haven't any money to pay
counsel," she said.
"L'|iou my word! I never thought
ofIbat"
"You are Ideal and Impractical," sbe
said. "That's tbe reason 1 love yon."
And sbe embraced me.
Our colloquy waa broken In upon
by tbe sheriff, who came In lo *ay
Ibat tbe real murderer bad been arrested and bad confessed. 1 was free
to go. At tbe same 'time be bauded
me 11 letter postmarked Rio Janeiro.
"Ab," I exclaimed, "my credentials."
Slipping the letter ln my pocket I
accompanied Bessie to ber father's
bouse. He greeted me warmly, and
1 handed bim the credentials I bad
received at the jail. Removing tbe envelope, be began to read, bis eyes opening wider a* be read.
"Are you a fool or a knave?" be
asked., looking up at me.
"Both," I replied.
"What I* it 7" asked Bessie.
"Why, daughter, this pastoral business of yours bas resulted ln yonr
catching Ihe only son and belr of tbe
biggest coffee planter In Braill. I
knew wben I received bla nolo tbat
he wa* an original, but I didn't know

me, "that yon are botb. 1001 _u_*.
knave. Will you kindly Inform me of
the Introspective reasoning by which
yon have arrived at thia result?"
"Well," 1 replied, "no one but a fool
wbo bas the career before htm tbat I
have would spend bla time sitting on
a three legged stool ln a wood daubing, and no one but a knave would
make love to a girl without her father even knowing tbat be la doing
It"
It was decided tbat Bessie and I
should be married lu June, and I concluded for my prospective father-in-
law's sake—who mnst have a noted
man for his daughter, even If a fool-
to return to Brazil. I told Bessie's
father that I should like to be mar
ried In the wood on a carpet of June
roses, whereupon he said that be had
had enough of that nonsense and
didn't wish any more of It
So we were married In a very mat*

Not at All a N.w Id**.
Any sensational achievement, any
notable event, any unusual, adventure
always sets people asking: "Was such
a thing ever done before?" or "How
did the Uea of doing such a thing
originate?"
For example, now that Ontario is
to be lighted by a public-owned plant
operated by Niagara power, people are
asking when and how the plan for
harnessing the Falls was flrst considered.
Niagara power has driven machinery
in various cities only a few years.
But the possibility of utilizing this
gigantic source of energy were discussed by practical engineers at least
thirty years ago. In 1884, Dr. Siemens, in an address at Glasgow, said:
"When, a little more than a twelvemonth ago I visited the great Falls
of Niagara, I was particularly struck
with the extraordinary amount ot
force which is lost, so far as tbe useful purposes of man are concerned."
He estimated that 16.800,000 horse
power was going to waste there, and
added: "In order to reproduce the
power of 16,800,000 horses, or, in otber
words, to pump back the. water from
below the fall, it would require an annual expenditure of not less than
266,000,000 tons ol coal, calculated at
au average consumption ol lour
pounds of coal per horse power per
hour! which amount is equivalent to
the total coal consumption of the
world." Dr. 6iemens further said:
"In stating these facts in my inaugural address on assuming the presi.
dency of the Iron and Steel institute,
1 ventured to express the opinion
that, in order to utilize natural lorces
of this description at distant town*
and centres of industry, the electric
conductor might be resorted to. This
view was at that time unsupported by
experimental data such aa 1 have
been able since then to collect."
Ameng th* Highbrow*.
Although Toronto prides it-ell on it*
highbrows, some ol its citizens are responsible for remarks which strongly
suggest Mrs. Malaprop. During the
recent visit of the New Theatre Co, |
the following conversation was overheard in a locul street car. Two friends
happened lo meet on the way to the
theatre.
"Are you going to tbe show?" asked
one.
"Yes, Mrs. Jonea invited me to go
down with her."
"What are you going to tee?"
"She is taking me down to the—a—a
I think it is 'The Merry Widow's Windows'."
Another lapse lor which there wa*
perhaps less excuse occurred in the
business office ol a certain institution
where students are taught the. high
arts. A concert had been given aud
a report of il was sent to 11 local newspaper. It contained the following unique sentence: "Miss J. gave a scholarly interpretation and displayed real
dramatic insight in her presentation
of the sleep-walking scene Irom 'Mc-
Beth'."
China Dog Licente.
Victoria, the capital oi British Columbia, has a peculiar municipal franchise. Every person who pays a fl
dog tax is entitled to vote in elections
for mayor and aldermen. Needless to
say, the system has led to abuses, lt
was receut discovered that six enterprising ladies had voted on the
strength ol a single dog, while one
ingenious lady, unable to get a real
dog in time to qualify, took out a 11*
cense lor a china dog on her mantelpiece. Municipal franchise reform is
regarded as a question cf urgency in
Victoria, and the unkind association
ol dogs with mayors and aldermen I*
doomed.
THE LUBE OF CARDS.
How Society Women Gambit In Dear
Old "Lunnen."
A few years ago Father Bernard
Vaughan preached a, course oi sermons on the mania for bridge which
was invading smart society. A* a
matter of fact, bridge is only, one oi
the many forms of (ambling in which
the up-to-date society woman indulges. Her field oi operations includes the Stock Exchange and the
Turf, as wil as the bridge clubs and
the tables at Monte Carlo and Dieppe.
The following i* a lair sample of
hov. a member oi the "-mart" gambling set spends her day. In the
morning, after a careful perusal of
the sporting news in the daily paper,
tne telephones to ber bookmaker
racking what she considers the likely
tinners ior the day. This finished,
she either gets through ii her stockbroker or else motors into the city
lor a personal interview with him.
Nowadays, many society women have
a very shrewd business instinct, lt
was the great ladies oi Mayfair and
Beigravia who were the first to reap
a profit from the rubber boom oi
last year.
After lunch, our fair gambler turn*
in tb her card club, where she will
play bridge, or its latest development
—auction bridge—till dinner time.
After dinner, more bridge or baccarat,
usually at borne or at a friend'*
house.
Wiiat is known as the "card instinct" seems to be more strongly developed in women than in men. At
any rate, the proficiency at bridge ot
many prominent ladies of society it
astonishing. At the present moment,
the best bridge player in London is
the wife of a well-known Guardsman.
This lady is generally supposed to
make $6,600 a year at bridge, and
this result is due entirely to skill.
A curious feature of the gambling
spirit in society is the way bridge
tournaments have taken the place ot
bazaars. At these tournaments the
entrance money and a percentage oi
the stakes is devoted to some charitable object. A fund organized by the
Lord Mayor last spring largely profited liy one of these tournaments.
Most gamblers are superstitious,
lau.es especially so. There is a certain countess, well-known in the
bridge world, who has a method ot
her own for testing her luck beforehand. Every morning, after breakfast, she' plays a couple of games ol
patience. If the carda come out well,
sho regards it as a good omen, and
goes to the bridge club early. If the
cards arj perverse, she accepts tii*
warning, and abstains Irom bridge
that duy.
Patience, by the way, is often made
a medium for big gambling, especially that form oi it known as "mon-
tana." In a certain ladies' club it i*
no uncommon tight to see two members gambling heavily at "montana."
One plays the cards, and the other
bets her a certain sum against the
cards coming out. In this way $50
or $76 often changes hand* in a single afternoon.
As long a* they are in England,
society women do their gambling in
private. But all tbis secrecy is thrown
off a* soon as the Channel is crossed. At Monte Carlo in the winter,
and at Dieppe and Dinard in the summer, any casual visitor to the' Casinos at theis place* can watch some
of the most exclusive oi society dames
playing baccarat or chennn de fer
with Tim, Dick, and Harry.
They are there for the purpose of
gambling, and, so long as they win. it
is no concern of theirs from whom
their winning* come, or lo whom
their losses go, for the matter of that.
Many of them gamble in the most
reckless fashion; but, with hardly an
exception, they are moat unemotional
player,*.
There is no greater offence than to
grumble when one lose* or to chortle
when one wins,

Few people are aware to this day 1
that the Falkland Islands (the birthplace, hy the way, of Miss Ellallne

With the pomp arid ceremony ot
feudal days, Viscount Milton, the infant heir of Earl and Countesj Fits-

cliriBtened at Wentworth Woodhouse,
Yorkfchire, perhaps the most magnificent mansion in the whole of England, and the ceremony acquired an
added interest from the fact that it
was the first time for nearly three-
quarters ol a century that a direct
heir hod been born to the reigning
he  I of the family.
Outside in the great park hospitality was dispensed on a lavish scale
to the seven thousand guests who had
been bidden to the christening.
There were fireworks, lootbad
matches, and entertainments galore
for the multitude of guestt, including all the old English sports. Thousands of people gathered round the
giant spit where an ox was roasting,
and countless glasse* were railed to
the health of the baby heir.
Only the immediate relative* and
friends of the family were present in
the little private chapel, and the baby
