Plans for New School
Alex Carrie, of Nelson, architect
of the new addition to the public
school building, was in the city on
Wednesday and had a conference
with the school trustees. He submitted plans for an addition to tbe
front nf tbe building, but the board
requested him to also draw plans
for an addition in the rear, as they
nre of tbe opinion tbat an extension
to tbe building at tbia point will
obviate fewer alterations to the
old structure.

Too Many Strings
This is leap year, lt is quite
proper for the girls to rail on their
best fellows. A young lAdy in tbis
city who has a vast number of
strings to her bow, mude a fatal
error the other evening. During the
afternoon she met one of her admirers, and before they parted she
had promised him that she would
call at bis borne that evening.
When night arrived she hail forgotten which of her beaux sbe hod
promised to call on. She wus in
a terrible plight, but dually decided
to throw her hat in the ring a making rough guess. As is often tho
case in such dilemmas, she called
on the wrong party. The other
young man sat in his front parlor
waiting for her until 12 o'clock. He
is now seriously considering tbe advisability of advertising for another
girl.

What Taft Meant
When Mr. Taft wrote that reciprocity would make Canada "an
adjunct of the United Slates," he
was biking, not about a political
ijuestion, but only about a trade or
business situation. And futhermore,
it would have been correct to say
that, with obstacles to commerce
north and south removed, we shoultl
have been equally "an adjunct ol
the Dominion."—New Yoik Sun.

rowed barley, yield 75 bushels an
acre
Fifth year—Simmer fallow.
Sixth year—Wheat.
Seventh year—Wheat.
Eighth year—Outs, heavy erup.
Ninth year—Summer billow.
Tenth yeur—Preston wheat, GO
bushels an acre.

of getting supplies into the camp
during tbe winter season, the showing on tbe claims was better than
had previously been found on any
otber property in the camp.

COLLECTING    POSTAGE    STAMPS
World-wide   Hobby   That   li   to   be
Respected.
Probably collections of postage
Mumps were begun simultaneously
with the issue of the flrst stamps,
whicli took place at London ln May,
1840—a circumstance that favors thia
view being that, in 1842, Punch ridiculed collectors. It was almost twenty years Inter, however, that stamp
collecting began to be systematically
carried on, and the recorded history
ot the Bcience or art or pastime, which
ever one may choose to call it, appears to date from 1802. The first
English aud American catalogues
were published In lhat yenr, so was
the firs', attempt nt a stamp album,
untl the periodical literature of the
hobby started In England during the
same twelvemonth, it was not until
1896 that the great club of collectors,
the Philatelic Society of London, was
organized, und, though several local
associations precluded our own national body, the American Philatelic Society/ delayed to be born until seventeen yeara after tnat. Now the
nations are filled with municipal or
general associations. At the last British philatelic congress more than
forty were represented, and the number of them In the wontl at large, ls
said to exceed 400.
During the fifty years, armies of
collectors have assembled, to be marshalled merrily by bands of dealers,
always In the direction of advancing
prices. It would safe to say that for
certain Mauritius stamps there is a
standing offer of $10,000 apiece, and
lt is believed that the world's greatest
collection cost its owner, a French
nobleman, more than a million dollars. Such Incidental details of finance prompts one to think respectfully of the avocation to which they
nro related, and one's respect would
surely Increase if, in May of this
jubilee year, he should visit the British philatelic congress, or if in August
he bhould go to Springfield to attend
the antial meeting of our American association. Neither children nor crazy
folk will be found lu these gatherings, which will be conspicuously
composed of level-headed citizens,
most of them possessed of substantial bank account. That, ot course,
tloes uot argue that young people
should not be encouraged to take up
slftinp collecting, but rather that they
sbould be. It is no more expensive
than any other hobby, it offers possibilities of great profit, and Incidentally It Insures thc reward of a wide*
and more accurate knowledge of geography ur.d history than was ever
gained by any lad from the usual
perfunctory dealings with text books.
~-Tlic Boston Transcript.
The Surfeit of the Wealthy.
What a man spends on himself he
should have earned by services to the
race. At the present day, we of the
easier classes, are in a state of surfeit and disgrace after meat. Plethora has filled us with indifference;
and we are covered from head to foot
with the callosltes of habitual opulence. Born Into what is called a certain rank, wa live, as the saying is,
up to our station.
Wo squander without enjoyment,
because our fathers squandered. We
eat of the best, not from delicacy, but
from brazen habit. We do not keenly enjoy or eaigerly desire 'the presence of a luxury; we aro unaccustomed to Its absence. And not only
do we squander money from habit,
but still more pitifully waste it In
ostentation.
1 can think of no more melancholy
disgrace for a creature who professes
either reason or pleasure for his
guide, than lo spend the smallest
fraction nf his income upon that
which he does not desire; and to keep
a carriage in which you do not wish
to drive, or a butler of whom you
are afraid, ie a pathetic kind of folly.
Money, being a means of happiness,
should niako both parties happy
when it changes hands; rightly disposed, it should be twice blessed In
its employment; and buyer and seller
should alike have their twenty shillings worth of profit out of every
pound, Benjamin Franklin went
through life an altered man, because
he once paid too dearly for a penny
whistle.
My concern, springs usually from a
deeper source, to wit, from having
bought a whistle when I did not want
one. 1 find I regret this, or would
regret It if I gave myself- the time,
not only on personal but on moral and
pbllanthropical considerations.
For, first, in a world where money
is wanted to buy hooks for eager
students and food and medicine for
pining children, and where a large
majority are starved in their most
immediate desires, lt Is surely base,
stupid, and cruel to squander money
when I am pushed by no appetite and
enjoy no return of genuine satisfaction.
My philanthropy is wide enough in
scope to include myself; and when
I have made myself happy. I have at
least one good argument that I have
acted rightly; but where that Is not
so, and I have bought and not enjoyed, my mouth Is closed, and I conceive that 1 have robbed the poor.—
It. ti. Stevenson.
Scottish Copper Discovery
What is confidently believed to be
s payable copper deposit has been
discovered at Killilnan,, in Argyllshire, uear the shores of Loch Fyne.
For some weekB past a company has
been energetically prosecuting prospecting operations, and as a result
a lode at least 6 feet thick has been
proved for a considerable distance
north and south of the point at which
it was found. The copper Is found
iq the form of carbonate and sulphide In a limestone formation.
Mining operations are to be initiated
on a considerable scale without de

The Kaiser's Character.
There is much that one cannot help
liking In tho character ot Wilhelm II.,
and It Is those who know him best
appreciate him. Imperious and autocratic to a degree he undoubtedly
Is, and he has a will of Iron that hates to be diverted from Its purpose.
He is also extremely hasty In his
judgements as mucb as in his actions.
No one Is more quick to realize his
failures, however, tban he is himself, and he has been known after a
heated outburst to go to the Minister
or official who provoked his wrath
almost Immediately afterward and
offer his apologies, and agree that a
different course from what he had
at first demanded would possibly
be the wisest. An apt case ln point
Is the famous telegram that his Majesty sent tu the late President Paul
Kruger upon hia defeat of the raiders
under Dr. Jameson. It Is asserted by
those who were about the German
and British courts at that time that
the Emperor was beard within a day
or two, and when he had had time
to consider fully the possible seriousness ot the action frequently to express regret that he bad ever allowed
himself to put pen to paper on the
subject, and _c is stated that the Emperor at once wrote very fully to
Queen Victoria en tbe matter, reiterating his regrets and explaining the
circumstances that led up to the despatch of the wire.—The Strand.

and I assert this boldly, dr, and without fear of successful contradiction,

the sum of two given Integers added
to the two otber Integers would be
four.'"

WINNIPEG'S   CHILDREN'S   HOSPITAL NEEDS NURSES.
Winnipeg,' as many of our readers
are aware, Is making progress in every direction, but in all Its progress
lt is not forgetting the' poor, abused
or sick children In its midst or in
Western Canada. . It has many Bplen"
did Institutions for the care and protection of such children, but cf all
its enterprises in tbls direction, none
is more deserving than tbe Children's
Hospital, which a band of philanthropic ladles started but a few short
years ago and which has grown to
sueh an extent that a large and commodious hospital building has. been
erected In the north end of the city.
This building Is rapidly nearing completion and already is housing a larger number of sick children than
have been treated at one time in the
history ot the Institution.
Tbe new hospital ts constructed upon entirely modern and scientific
lines In nil departments, snd will undoubtedly shine as thc greatest ckll-
dren'e hospital ot tho Dominion whon
It is completed and in full operatlou.
Now that it Is ready for the tiny
patients, Miss Ramsey, the able Superintendent, Is desirous of enrolling
a limited number of Canadian girls
as probationers. As this is a very
exceptional opportunity for any young
woman who contemplates taking up
the profession of nurslug, those who
are thinking ot it should communicate
at once witb Miss Ramsey, The
course is three years, during the first
year tl per month is paid the probationer, the second year t)8 and the
last year }9. All necessary books nre
supplied hy tho hospital. Affiliation
with the hospitals ln general, contagious and maternity nursing is also
one of thc features. A post graduate course of six months or more
may be added.
: Aa no better opportunity could bc
open to young women taking up the
honored and honorable profession of
nursing, those who wish to learn further details should communicate with
Miss Ramsey at once, care of Children's Hospital, Winnipeg.

ZAM-BUK IN THE HOME
Read How Useful It Proved In These
Widely Different Cases
.Sam-Bilk's strongest point ls Its effectiveness ir. all kinds ot skin diseases and injuries. Just note how excellent these persons proved it in
widely different directions.
Sore Heel.—Mrs C. A. Campbell, of
Powasean, -Ont., writes*. "One of my
heels was very badly blistered by a
pair of new shoes, and the poisonous
dye from my. stocking got Into tt, and
made a bad sore. For a week I could
oot put on a shoe, and suffered great
pain. I applied Zam-Buk, and ln a
tew days it drew the poison out and
healed tho wound."
Bad Cut.—Mrs. J. Virgin!, ot Onondaga; Ont., writes*. "Zam-Buk healed
a bad cut which I sustained. I was
hurrying across my yard one day
when I clipped and fell heavily, my
knee striking a sharp stone. At the
moment I did not realize how badly
I was hart, but I found I had a bad
tut about two inches long, very jagged' and very deep. We bathed the
tut and applied Zam-Buk. This stopped' the smarting very quickly, and
In a few days it had healed the wound
completely. For cuts and brulBes
Zam-Buk la a splendid remedy."
Eczema Cured.—Mrs. Antoine Ar-
senau'.t of Maxlamville, l'.E.I., writes:
"I cah highly recommend Zam-Buk to
any person suffering from eczema. I
hatl this disease and was under doctors' treatment for two years, without any good result. I ■ then tried
Zam-Buk and in the end it cured me."
Zam-Buk ts just as good for piles,

eruptions, cuts, burns, bruises, and
all skin injuries and diseases. 60c.

big, my appetite was fitful and my

"Then rheumatism set In and neuralgia, backache, headache and heart

attended hy a doctor but he did me
no lasting good.
"Finally, when Bright's Disease had

Concrete Is easily mined, and easily placed. Tt resists hest snd
cold as no other material can; hence la beat for ice-houses, root-

it makes tht best walks, fence-posts, culverts, draln-tllea, survey

''I'lDA'., MAY  31,  1HI-'
Tiik farce of tukiiig a vote on lho
reservoir debenture bylaw waa curried out today. We designate it ns
a farce, because very few of the
ratepayers were awnre lhat sui'h an
event wus to be pulled o(T. Even
some of thr ulileruien had to be re
minded tliat this wus polling day.
As a result the vote was ridiculously
small. As the bylaw now reads,
not a single ballot should have been
cast in its favor. The amount to be
expended for waterworks improve
ments is not Btated. Are the ratepayers prepared to give tlie council
unlimited powers in burdening the
citizens wilh new debts. The people had a laste of this kind of financing in pioneer days. It is tiftie the
ratepayers ascertained the cost of
the proposed improvement.
As has anticipated liy The Sun,
the cily council has evolved & method of evading the provincial law
prohibiting granting salaries to may
ore. The plan is very simple. Raise
the aldermen's salaries, and let the
aldermen divide with the mayor.
If the council can evade provincial
laws, why sbould not the poor ratepayers be granted the privilege of
evading the city bylaWB?

season for the control of scale insects, but is of little use in the control of aphis. The aphis are nearly
all hatched now and by a close examination of the buds numbers of
tliem can be seen feeding on the
young leaves. When they are at all
numerous, is the time to spray and
there are several contact sprays that,
when applied thoroughly, are erti
cient in the control ef these pests.
At this season of Ihe yenr when
many of Ihe young leaves are out,
and the blossom buds not open, the
following is a good spray mixture:
j One gallon of lime sulphur to 30
of water and to every hundred gallons add one gallon of Kentucky
black leaf extract. This mixture is
effective against aphis and is also a
valuable fungicide.
Other effective aphis sprays frit
summer spraying are:
1. One gallon Kentucy black leaf
extract iri 60 gallons of water.
2. "Black leaf 40," 1 ^art to 700
parts water.
3. Kentucky black leaf onegal-
lon, and whale oil simp ihree pounds
in 100 gallons of water.
i.  Whnle oil soap 7  pounds  and
quassia  chips 8   pounds     Dissolve
ihe soap in hot water nn'l  boil  ih"
qunssia in iihout .S gnlliiiis  of   wn'e
for   one  hour     Siriaio nnd mix the
two together nnd diluie with enough
wnter to niiikes 100 gallons ofsprny
It  must be remembered that to
kill aphis the insect must he covered
with the spray.    Each  insect is fur
nished   with   a   tube or beak with
which it penetrates the outer cover
ing of the plant   and sucks the sap
from below  the surface.    For   this
! reason they cnn not be   killed by n
I poison spray applied to the surface
of tbe plant and eantact sprays   as
thoBe   mentioned   above   must   be
I used.    The sprnying must be thor
' ough so ns to cover the bodies of the
'aphis with the spray mixture. Early
! spraying   before   the    aphis   have
Curled   the   leaves and hefore beneficial insects are  very  numerous is
Ihe most efficient.

Hope in the Hoe for the City
Man
"Brains, printed In capital lettera
and the blackest of type, heads
every list of requirements of tbe
farm. As a leaven for the exaggera
tions the prospective purchasers may
expect from the sellers of land; as a
common factor to knit together tbe
various schemes for success into a
concrete plan; as tbe very best fertilizer to put into the ground witb
the seed, tbere is nothing tbat links
every element to success like brains.'
Tbese statements are made by Gardner Mack, discussing "The Hope in
the Hoe' for the City Man," in the
June number of Popular Mechanics
Magazine. The article states further:
"The very first -Application of
brains to thc farming problem for
the city man is to decide first of all
whether or not the country is really
the place for him.
"There is no formula by which
one can determine wbether he wa
bred fur the country or the city
The only way lo find out is to mak)
an actual trial. But it is well to
give carfful consideration to this end
of the problem first, and only a'tei
it haB been threshed nut at length,
In begin looking fur a place.   .
"There is nu nut limit on tht-
firm. So lhat while the tired clerk
of forty is living used as an example
throughout this article, there ia no
reason why a permit should be discouraged from trying Ihe experiment eveu if he is beyond that age
The free life and fresh air of tbe
farm, U> say nothing of the healthful habits the work is sure to bring
into lieing, if they are not there al
ready, n aking for longevity and
the continuance of strength, during
advancing years."
An estimate of probable initial
expense, including building materials, well, windmill, and tools, is
given; also most profitable crops to
raise are discussed. Regarding the
marketing of produce Mr. Mack
Bays.
"A bumper, crop is a dead loss unless after it has been raised, tbe pro
duce ia prepared for the market in a
way that will make tbe people
buy it."
And, in conclusion: ''When you
consider that tbe income estimated
is net profit, and that tbe living expense of Ihe family waB practically
paid from the sale of surplus milk,
butter, eggs and vegetables; that all
of the family worked, and their
labor was charged in the bill as part
of tbe expense of tbe establishment
that tbrough it all there was no fear
of a loss of a job, no trouble with
tbe fanitor or the landlord, and no
doctor's bills, it will be understood
that the profit from the farm wsb
something more tban a financial
gain." -  '
Has Richard's Measure
Mr.. McBride's coarse on tbe
naval policy-is pretty well known by
Canadians. It bas been exceedingly shifty and crooked. He bas tried
to follow Mr. Borden into any hole,
and when be tells tbe British people
that the Borden government is going
to supersede the Laurier naval policy
with "a broader and more effective
plan," we undrstand tbe game he is
playing. Mr. Borden . Js under
orders from Monk, Pellelier, Nan-
tell, Bourassa and Lavergne to do
nothing at all. McBride talks ahout
"getting a fleet of Dreadnaughts on
tbe Pacific.'! McBrids bas personally no official power in the matter.
U he hopes to get a fleet of Dread-
naughts, he will bave to induce the
Nationalist leaders to swallow themselves. He has no hope of doing
that, so he gets up the busy cable
grams to produce the idea that be,
McBride, is keeping this matter
alive, and to have "the British Columbia statesman" admired among
tbe British Unionism aB the greatest
imperial statesman of Canada. And
all tbe while' Borden is under the
whip of the Nationalists and has no
pinion in lhe  matter

His familiar bark brings his little mistress, Marjorie, lo the door and
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" ia equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by pulling his

whine, wbich in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lipa—tbe two glad-eyed children—an eager boy with hair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl witb rippling lopke, her affectionate arms around the slmitey neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win a favored plnce

I. Sir Richard Jebb, the eminent phyiician, was a man ot irritable temper; and when bored by the querulous complaint! ot some ot hli patients could not always force himself
to return a civil answer. A troublesome patient, whose Illness was purely Imaginary, pestered him one day
with questions as to what he should
eat.
"My directions on that point," said
Sir Richard, "will he tew and Bimple.
You must not eat the shovel, poker
or tongs, for they are hard ot digestion; nor the bellows, for they are
windy, but anything else you please!"

NEW STRENGTH
IN THE SPRING
Nature Need* Aid In Making. New
Health-Giving Blood
In the spring tho Bystem needs a
tonic"* To be healthy you must have
new blood Just as the trees must
have new sap to renew their vitality; Nature demands it. and without
this new blood you will feel weak
and languid. You may have twinges
ot rheumatism or the sharp, stabbing
pains of neuralgia. Often there are
dlBflguriug pimples or eruptions on
the skin. In other case3 there is
merely a feeling of tiredness and a
variable appetite. Any of these arc
signs that the blood Is out ot order
—that the Indoor life of winter has
lessened your vitality. What you
need in spring is a tonic medicine to
put you right, and In all the world
of medicine there is no tonic catl
equal Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. These
pills actually make new, rich, red
blood—your greatest need In spring.
This new blood drives out the seeds
of disease and makes easily tired
men, women and children bright, active and strong. Mrs. Murray Marshall, Zephyr, Ont., says: "I do not
believe I would ever have been well
and strong again but for Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I was so weak aud
nervous that I could not bo left In
the house alone. I would take weak
spells with my heart and think I was
going to die. I tried doctors and
electric belts, but they did mc no
good. Then a friend urged me to try
Dr. Williams' Piuk Pills. To my surprise I socn noticed my appetite improving, and from that on I improved rapidly until I was enjoying the
best ot health, and I have not been
troubled with weakness or nervousness since." •
These rills are sold by all medicine
dealers or can be hail by mail at 50
cents a box or six boxes for $2.50
from the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,
Brockville, Ont.

Muscular Rheumatism Subdued.—
When one is a sufferer from muscular rheumatism he caunot do better

is secured. There is more virtue lu
