RanoherB Will Be Able to
Irrigate Their Land In
a Few Weeks
The electric motors and pumps
ordered by tbe ranchers of the valley a couple of months ago for irrigation purpose!, arrived in tbe oily
laat Monday' morning from Hamilton, Ont. Tbe farmers are now
busy laying the pipe and installing
the plants, and it is expected tbat
some of them will be ready. to turn
on tbe water in a couple of weeks.
Mr. Burrell'i Ranch
Tli the Editor nf The Sttii.
Sir—Some time after the annouce-
■oeiit of the reciprocity agreement with
the United States, the press of British
. Columbia mentioned the sale of Mr,
Martin Burrell's fruit farm near Qrand
Forks. Further information received
by me at the time from residents of
Qrand Forks was to the effect that the
sale was made at a price 110,000 in
advance of what the property had
been offered for before the- reciprocity
agreement had bean negotiated. This
information was given to me by residents of Orand Forks, who were conversant with land sales and land
values in that district. I used it at
several meetings to prove my contention that the effect of the reciprocity
agreement would be to enhance the
value of British Columbia fruit lands,
and at the same time I compared values ot fruit lands in Washington and
Oregon to show that the owners of
fruit lands in our province would beneflt very largely when the agreement
became operative.
Mr. Burrell has written to the Nelson News denying the nccuraoy of my
statements and complaining ehat 1
should thus refer to his private affairs
at a public meeting. The reference to
the sale of his fruit farm to illustrate
the point that reciprocity ia fruit was
no detriment to the purchasers (although it may have been an incentive
to Mr. Burrell to sell), can scarcely
be construed us dealing with his private affairs. Such sales are always
recorded in the press, and publication
of the facte is never deemed improper.
Only excessively thin-skiuned people
would take that view.
It was particularly appropriate, I
thought, to quote the sale of Mr. Burrell's farm at a better price than he
could have got furtt before reciprocity waa agreed to, and before lie made
his blue-ruin speech on the effects of
reciprocity upou the fruit industry,
ft was a complete answer to his jeremiads, because if wide-awake men
would buy his fruit turn and other
fruit farms adjacent to it, in the face
ot the "smashing blow" that he said
had been dealt the fruit industry, it
surely was an argument in favor of
my contention, and to my mind an unanswerable one. It was for that reason, and that reason only, that I
mentioned the sale. .   .
While Mr. Burfell denies the eccur-
aoy ol my statements, he does oot correct them. It is not a matter of much
consequence wheter it was American
or Canadian capital which went into
the enterprise, or whether Mr. Burrell
accepted a little less than he was asking at the time of the sale. Tine que*
tion is, did he  ts\\ after  reciprocity
was announced at a higher price than
he haa asked before it was thought of
My information is that he did, and
that he was better off by about $10,-
A fruit Win in Washington like
tliat of Mr. burrell's would bring
double the price he obtained for his,
and when reciprocity has been in operation a year, the fortunate purchasers will be able to sell it again at 100
per cent profit. The trouble with Mr.
Burrell, the fruit grower, is that the
politiciap who represents Yale-Cariboo
has converted hiin into a sorrowful
pessimist, and has led him to say nnd
do things he will be apoloaizing fnr
before he is many years older,
Wsi. Templeman.
Apple Prospects Diminish
The report of the fruit division of
the department of agriculture at Ottawa states that the prospect for apples has diminished slightly since
laat month's report, except in British Columbia, where prospects have
rather improved, and it is now estimated that shipments from tbis
province will be 85 per cent of last
year's crop, which was very heavy.
The hot, dry weather does not appear to have materially affected apple crop prospects iri Eastern Canada, although correspondents, especially in Ontario, have expressed
apprehension tbat if sufficient rain
does not soon come the crop will be
very much shortened. Apples are
beginning to drop heavily in some
districts. Tbere are reports of sun
scald in counties north ot Lake
Erie and in counties on Lake Huron
aud inland to York county.
Nova Scotia still expect* the great-
eat crop on record, due party to increased acreage, but also to heavy
yield. Baldwins are short. A very
marked feature of the situation so
far is freedom disease early seen.
Eastern Ontario promises to be ten
days earlier than usual.

Mineral Exhibit at Spokane
After a careful canvas nf the situation among mining men, the management of mineral exhibit at the Spokano Interstate fair, which will be
held this year October 2 to S, have
decided that we are upou tho eve of
the greatest mining activity ever
known, and to meet tho demand for
information it is their determination
to call upon every district to be represented.
To meet the new condition no expense has been spared to make the
mineral department attractive. New
quarters, larger, better arranged anil
lighted, with cement floor, are under
construction, and every effort will he
made to meet requirements for  space.
A district which is nut represented
both as to exhibits and as to one or
more poisons in chargo will not show
the spirit necessary to the fullest exploitation of the resources in which a
larger number of people are now interested than over before.
Money for mining,dovelopment and
equipment is easier to secure than for
any other purpose at this time and for
establishment of plants for the manufacture of clay products, etc.,it should
bc equally easy to interest capital.
An organized effort should be made
lo send a mineral exhibit from this
district to the Interstate Fair, aod to
select some one to prepare and take
the exhibit to Spokane. If action
along this line is taken, the superin
tendent of tho mineral department of
the fair should be notified at as early
a date as possible as to what the district intends to do, en<f how much
space ia required. By freight, exhibits may be sent at the expense of the
fair on all railroads entering Spokane.
Farmers'Institute id Opera
House on Monday and
Thursday Nights
Prof. A. E. Etchevery, of California State college, Berkeley, will
deliver an illustrated address-in tbe
opera bouse next Monday night on
Irrigation: Its Installation and Ap-
plicotion." Prof. Etchevery has.-'
been appointed by the provioeial
government to investigate the various irrigation systems and projects
throughout the semi-arid belt ot
British Columbia. As an authority
on irrigation problems Prof. Etche-
veay is recognized aa one of tbe most
competent on tbe American continent, having full charge of all state
works in California. Every one in
tbe valley is invited to be present
The Bubject is of vital interest to tbe
residents of tbis district. Tbe cbair
will be taken at 8 o'clook. Ladies
will be made most welcome.
The department of agriculture announces a series of supplementary
Farmers' Institute meetings, wbich
will be conducted by Professor R.
W. Allen, superintendent of du
Umatilla irrigation experiment station at Hermiston, Ore., assisted by
B. Hoy, assistant horticulturist, of
It is the intention of the department to make Professor Allen's
demonstration in tbe application of
water practical and adapted to local
conditions. Professor Allen will
have sufficient time to acquaint himself with tbe problems of each district, and it is expected tbat much
good will accrue from bis demonstrations and the evening meetings,
especially as there ia great need tor
practical information on this subject
in tbis valley.
Tbe meeting in Qrand Forks will
be held in tbe opera bouse Thursday evening, July 27. The irrigation demonstration will be. beld at
the Doull ranch at 4 o'lock on
Thursday afternoon.
In the afternoon Professor Allen
will give a demonstration of tbe
relative advantages of deep aud
shallow furrows, and the proper distances apart for furrows, the percolation of water through tbe soil, and
tbe economical application of water.
He will also discuss many of the
problems which come with tbe dis
tribution and use of water, ln Ibe
evening Professor Allen will lecture
on the broader aspects of irrigation,
particularly the relation of irrigation
water to soils and the problems of
seepage, alkali, etc. Tbese lectures
will be illustrated by lantern slides,
showing tbe application of water by
different methods, and general irrigation scenes in Oregon. In tbe
evening Mr. Hoy will also lecture on
timely culturul topics for orchardists, including the use of cover
crops, summer pruning the handling
of fruit.
The department of agriculture, in
making arrangements for these
meetings, expects that the importance of tbe subject, and tbe high
standing of the principal speaker
will result in a large attendance ot
those intimately interested in tbe
application ot water. THE   SUN.   GRAND   FORKS.   B. C.

Vera yielded to the ecstacy of the
moment. Everything was so dork
and melancholy that it seemed a sin
to lose a gleam of sunshine like this.
But the time crept on and the November sun was sinking, and it was borne
i in upon Vera that she must get back
1 to the house again. Very gently she
disengaged herself from Venner's embrace.
could see into the room, the door of
which was open. Fenwick stood there
apparently engaged in superintending
the melting of metal in a crucible
over a fire, which was driven to a
white heat by a pair of bellows. The
rest of his gang seemed to be doing
something on an iron table with
moulds and discs. Vera could see the
gleam of yellow metal, then somebody
"We must be really practical now," j shut the door and she could glean no
Vera was only too glad to get away.
Despite her strange surroundings,
despite the sense of coming danger,
she threw herself on the bed and
slept the sleep of utter exhaustion.
It was getting towards noon before
she came to herself, invigorated and
refreshed by her long rest.
So far as the girl could see there
were no servants in the house at present besides an old retainer of the
family and her husband. Fenwick
had made some excuse about the
staff of domestics who were to follow
later on, but up to now he only had
his own familiars about him, the
men whom Vera had known more or
less for the last two years. The meals
appeared to be served in a remarkably irregular fashion; even the
lunch was partaken of hurriedly by
Fenwick, who pleaded the pressure of
"I can't stop a minute," he said.
"I have more to do now than I can
manage. I should just like to have
a look at that letter that you have
written to Zary. There is no excuse
for not doing it now, and I want to
put it in the post bag."
"Very well, Vera said serenely.
"If you will come with me to the
library you will see exactly what I
■write. I know you are a suspicious
man and that you don't trust anybody, therefore I shall be very glad
for you to know that I have carried
out your request to the letter."
Fenwick laughed as if something
had pleased him. Nevertheless, he
looked over Vera's shoulder until she
had penned the last word. She slowly folded up the communication and
sealed it.
"How am I to address the envelope?" she said. "I have not the
slightest idea where Zary is to be
found. For all I know to the contrary, he may not even be in England."
"Oh yes, he is," Fenwick chuckled.
"He is in London at the present moment. If you address that letter 17
Paradise street, Cumberwell, Zary
will get it to-morrow morning."
Vera wrote the address boldly and
firmly, and handed the letter with
more or less contempt to her companion. She wanted him to feel
that she held his suspicions witb
scorn. She wanted him to know that
so far as she was concerned here was
un end of the matter. Nevertheless,
she followed him carelessly from the
room and saw him place the letter
together with others, on the hall
table. A moment later he had vanished and Vera was left alone to act
promptly. She did not hesitate for a
moment. She made her way back to
the drawing room and addressed a
second envelope to the house in Paradise street, into which envelope she
slipped a blank sheet of paper. Then
she stamped the envelope and made
her way cautiously to the hall. There
was a chance that she was being
watched but she had to run the risk
of that. She was crossing the hall
freely and carelessly now, and so
contrived to sweep the mass of letters to the floor, exclaiming at her
own clumsiness as she did so. Like
a flash she picked out the one letter
that she Heeded and exchanged it
for the otber. A moment later she
was out of doors, with the dangerous
communication in her pocket.
So far n« she could see, she had
succeeded heyond her wildest expectations. \ era was trembling from
head to font now, but the fresh air
of the park mid thi' broad beautiful
solitude of it soothed her jarred
nerves and hrnught hack u more contented frome of mind, Hit spirits
rose an she walked along.
"I am glml I ilid that," she told
herself, "I may be mistaken, but I
firmly believe Unit I have saved
Zury's life. Had be come down, here
be would never have left the place
aviiin. And yet there is danger for
11ins still and 1 must warn him of it.
I must manage to communicate in
some way with Gernld. I wonder if
it would be safe to send him a telegram from the village. I wonder,
too, in what direction the village lies.
Still, I have all the afternoon before
me, and a brisk walk will do me
With a firm elastic step Vera walked across tbe grass in the direction
of a wood, beyond which she could
see the slope of the highroad. She
hnd hardly entered the wood before
she heard a voice culling her name,
and to her intense delight she turned
to find herself face to face with Venner.
"Oh. this is glorious," she said, ns
she placed both her hands in his.
"But do you think it is quite safe
for you to come here so soon? For
all I know I may be followed."
"I don't think so," Venner snid.
"Now let me tnke you in my arms
nnd kiss you. Let us sit down here
in this snug corner nnd try to imagine thnt we nre bnck in the hnppy
days when no cloud loomed between
us nnd we were looking forward to
many joyous years together. We will
talk  mundane matters presently."
she  said.    "Tell  me what  has happened   since   I left   the   hotel   last
"So far as  I  can  see,    nothing,"
Venner replied. "I asked for you
I this morning, and to my surprise I
I found tha't you had vanished in the
dead of night with a mysterious chnf-
feur and a Mercedes car.    By great
good luck I found a policeman who
had made a note of the number of j figures  came  almost
the car; after which I
^^^ went to the
makers, or rather the agents of the
makers, after which it wus quite easy
to find out that the Mercedes in
question had recently been delivered
to Mr. Mark Fenwick's order at Mer-
ton Grange, near Canterbury. After
that, you will not be surprised to find
that I came down here as soon as
possible, and that I have been hiding
here with a pair of field glasses trying to get a glimpse,of you."
"That was very interesting," Vera
laughed. "But tell me about my
sister.   I am so anxious over her."
"No reason to be," Venner Baid.
"She has gone back to her brother,
"Oh, I am so glad. Now listen to
me carefully."
She went on with some detail to
tell the story of her last night's experiences. She spoke of Felix Zary
and the letter which she had been
more or less compelled to write to
hiin. Also, she described the ruse
by which the letter had been regained.
"Now, you must go and see this
Zary," she said. "Tell him that you
come from me und tell him all about
the letter. Mind, he must reply to
the letter just as if it had reached
him in the ordinary way through the
post because I shall have to show
the answer to Mr. Fenwick, and I
want to lull his suspicions to
entirely. You may find Zary a little
awkward nt first."
"I don't think I shall," Venner
smiled. "In fact, he and I are already acquainted. But I am not going to tell you anything about that.
You prefer to keep your secrets so
far as I am concerned and I am going to guard mine for the present.
I am working to put an end to all
this mystery and bother, and I am
going to do it in my own way. Any-
wny I will see Zary for you and tell
him exactly what has happened. In
fact I will go to town this evening
for the express purpose. Then I will
come hack in the morning and meet
you here the same time to-morrow
They parted at that and Vera made
her way bnck to the house. She saw
thut the letters were no longer on
the hall table, and therefore she
concluded that they had been posted

ner dtirirg the rest of the evening.
She treated Fenwick more or less
distantly, as if she were still offended with his suspicions. Fenwick, on
the other hand, was more than usually amiable. Something hnd evidently pleased him, and he appeared
to be doing his best to wipe out the
unpleasant impression of the morning. Vera felt quite easy in her mind
now; she knew that hei ruse had
been absolutely successful. All the
same she ignored Fenwick's request
for a little music, professing to be
exceedingly tired which, indeed, was
no more thnn the truth.
"I am going to bed quite early,"
she snid. "I have been sleeping very
indifferently of late."
It was barely ten before she was
in her room and there she lay oblivious of all thnt was taking place
around her. till she woke presently

She hurried along back to her own

reaching it, when she came face to

"A chieftain of a frontier state, over

to extort some of the wiahh, by mean-

tbat tie unfortunate man should be

asked tlie llesident by what right he
interfered. "Ihis,' said the Sawbwa.

"Of course, hy a very small display

would be transferred to the provincial sphere, but so far the blow ha*
not fallen. A splendid speaker, filled
witn Western optimism, a graduate of
Toronto University, where he took
honors in .arts and classics, Mr. Martin has no difficulty at all in catching the ear of the House. He is one
nf a young band surrounding Sir Wilfrid Laurier, filled with the fire uf

A Prophecy Fulfilled.
lt ts related of Albert Fell, that fine
old English gentleman whose whole
life was devoted to the reform of the
English poor laws and to the general
uplifting and improvement ol the oon-
Uitiun, moral, social, and political, of
the English agricultural laborer, that
one of the first well-known men whom
be met as a small boy was Wilber-
force, who used to stay with his father, Sir Albert Pell, in the country.
When one of the Pell's friends wan
an infant in arms, his nurse waa
swept by an election to the very foot
nf York hustings at a famous contest-
fur the county in which Wilbertoree
was one of the principal actors. With
all the earnestness and vigor which
distinguished him, he was pressing
his beneficient views on the abolition
of r' '.very.
Carried away by the depths of his
convictions nnd enthusiastic inspiration, he reached over the balcony, and
snatching the baby from the arms nf
its astonished nurse, held it up over
his head in the face of the people
exclMminir— "See this nnd henr my
prophecy I Before t*-is ehild dies there
will not be a wnite man in the world
owning a slave."
Pell's friend survived the Civil War
in the United States, und virtually
Wilberforce's prophecy wns fulfilled.

Two boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills
Cured her.
Preyil, Que. (Special). — Nearing
the three score mark, but feeling like
u woman of thirty, Mrs. John McRae,
wife of a farmer living near here, is
telling her neighbors that she owes
her health to Dodd's Kidney Pills.
"For two'years and seven months,"
says Mrs. McRae, "I was a sufferer
from Kidney Disease brought on by
a strain and a cold. My eyes were
puffed and swollen, . my muscles
cramped, and I suffered from Neuralgia and Rheumatism. My back
ached und I hud pains in my joints.
"For two years 1 was under the
doctor's care, but he never seemed
to do me any lasting good. Then I
was advised to try Dodd's Kidney
Pills. Two boxes made a new woman
of me."
Dodd's Kidney Pills make tired,
run-down women feel as if life hod
storted all over again for them by
curing the kidneys. Healthy Kidneys
mean pure blood, and pure blood
means new life aii over the body.

How  the Trusts    Have    Seized  the
Great "Market of Ninety
Mr. C, L. Sibley, of Montreal, who
has recently returned from a tour
of the Eastern States where-he wrote;
a series of articles for the Montreal
Star on "Deserted Farms in the:
United States," says in referring to I
Reciprocity:— '
Do the Canadian farmers imagine
that they can invade the markets of
the United States and succeed where
so many American farmers fail? If
so, let them make a survey of farming conditions east of the Mississippi Midgie Station, N. B.-One can

pie, or if the United States had even
begun to have reached its limit of
production, surely these farmers
would at least have begun to feelj
the benefit of it. Exactly the reverse
is the case.
The United States census reports of
the 20-year period from 1880 to 1900
show that in that time no fewer than
15.344 farms in New England went
out of existence,    that    there   were
Lydia EPinkham'sVegeta-
ble Compound Cured Her.
17,000 less farmers in these States
at the end of the period than at the
beginning, nnd that some 5,000,000
acres of land that were in cultivation
in 1888 went out of tillage and cultivation.
And thanks to the truBts the profits of the farmers in the great markets now to be placed open to the
people of Canada are so small that
the, decline of farming in New England' is still progressing despite free
access to the market of ninety millions of people. Lost year—the year
of their census—there were in New
England 187,418 farms, which is 2.3
less per cent, than the number at
the census ot 1900. The total acre-
oge of these farms in 1910 was 19,-
674,000-acres, and in the acreage
there had been in the last ten years
a decrease of 4.3 per cent. Of this
total acreage not quite one-half, or
to he exact, 7,242,000 acres, was improved land.
Here are some of the prices of
farms actually on offer at this moment in the New England States:
In the town (or, as we call it, Uie

FRIDAY, JULY 21,' 1911
When a newspaper calls a real
estate deal a "private affair," too
sacred a tratosaction to.be discused
in a public meeting* it is to be presumed that tUe-'editnr is either u
novice at his profession or else be
ia merely writing because be is enamored-of his own woidi*. ' Hon. Win.
Templeman,' in his Nelson speech,
cited some figures in the sale of Mr.
Burrell's ranch" to ,prove that the
prospects of the passage of the reci-
" pr_ic_ty.». agreement had raised the
value of fruit lands in this district.
Mr. Templeman had a perfect right
to^use" the figures in.this transaction" to prove liis contention. Vet
nearly every Tory* newspaper in the
province is now accusing' Mr. Templeman of having violated the ethics
of a public-speaker for doing so.
.Some even think lie has committed a
crime. .It takes'but a: meagre incident for tbe Conservative eilitois to
make an "issue out of, especially
when they are hard pressed for arguments in tbe main case. We advice
them to put'Mr. Burrell;'in a
glass case, and label it "hands oft."
It quite possible tbat a "dark
• bone" may win in- Yale-Cariboo in
the next general elections., The
I province, however, wouldffremain'a
''white British Colunib'in."'' ■"•',
.Parliament is again in'; session;
and the members have resumed\ the-
discussion on the reciprocity.: agree-,
ment. If the treaty - is'gratified f by-
Thanksgiving, the consumers (will
have good cause toi)e;thankful;' ,

The Colonist denies that it published T. P. O'Connor's write-up of
Premier McBride as was attributed
to it by this paper. It is evident the
article appeared in the other Matson
paper, the News-Advertiser, and an
error in names was made. Uut the
denial of the Colonist raises another
point. If the Colonist did not reproduce Tay Pey's fulsome praises of our
"revered chief," why didn't it! Did
the Colonist have so much respect for
the intelligence of its readers that it
could not reproduce Tay Pay's ridicu
lous pabulum antl save its blushes!
Other Tory papers in British Columbia liked the stud' and published it,
and it no doubt was to the liking of
Premier McBride. Why was it not
approved by the Colonist! Isn't the
premier as big a man as Tay Pay
shows him to lie, or is that he is quite
as small as Tay Pay also shows him to
Ik! lteally this ahsteinsioii of the
Colonist from publishing sueh a brilliant article by so distinguished a
writer and about "our revered leader"
raises so many vexing questions that
I think I shall pass the whole problem
over to the Bowser Tories of Vancouver for solution. What say you,
gentlemen, was the reason why the
Colonist ditl not reproduce the T. I1
O'Connor sketch of Premier McUritle,
a noble piece of literature with a noble subject for a theme!—-Saturday

Both local papers are much exercised over the knighting of Max
Aitken, until recently a company promoter in Montreal, but uow, thanks
tu watered stock ami au aggiessive
American wife, Sir Max Aitken and
an English M.P. Both papers agree
that he has done nothing whatever in
Canada to justify the honor which ho
has received. The Colonist, however,
takes the view  that uale.i  he  -W lead, £13 6a 3d.'
nominated for the honor by the gover
nor-general, on the advice of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Canadians bave no right
to criticise. This is only half a truth.
Canadians would have a right to
push the criticism very much further
if any responsible Canadian official
had made the recommendation, but
the conferring of a coronation honor
on a man of Mr. Aitken's type is a
fair matter for criticism throughout
the empire, and every ono familiar
with tlie circumstances will regret
that the king was advised to couplo
his name with those of many worthy
men who have rendered distinguished
public service. It is difficult to believe tnat Sir Max Aitken owes his
title to Canadian influence: it is much
more probable that it is due to a
princely contribution to the party
campaign funds at the lust British
elections.—Victoria Week.

and Alberta to consider ways and
means of co-operation for the purpose
of assisting in settling the strike of
the miners in the Crow's .Vest coal
district, which has been in progress
since March 2ft. The movement was
originated by the Western Fuel association of Spokauu.
The resolution points out that the
supply of coal from the Crow's Nest
Pass mines is used largely in eastern
Washington antl Idaho and furnishes
practically the entire supply of steam
coal for the Spokane market; also that
the furthes prolonging of the strike is
bound to result in great injury and
distress to the people of the provinces
of British Columbia and Albert). It
also states that many residents of Spokane are financially interested in the
mines, and that the Spokane International railroad, which has access to
the mines, is owned hv Spokane
Id. F; Waggoner, a trustee of the
chamber of commerce anil the West
ern Fuel association, is reported as
saying iu an interview:
"The steam coal trade of .Spokane is
supplier! principally by British Columbia mines, and, unless the strike is
settled very quickly, the local dealers
will have to look elsewhere for their
tupplies, as the mines, if they tlo not
resume operating soou, will not In*
able to supply the home trade, ami, as
a consequence, will be unable to export very little, if any, coal during
(he next four or live months."

• Neuralgia is a cry of thc nerves for
more and better blood. It literally
means that the nerves are being
starved. Like every other part of the
.body th? nerves receive their nourishment through the blood. There is
therefore no doubt that Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills will-cure the worst cases
of neuralgia. They actually make
new rich blood, carrying to the starv-
1 ed nerves the elements they need,
thus driving away the sharp,
torturing pains which nearly drives
the sufferer wild. So many cases of
neuralgia have yielded to treatment
through Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
that every sufferer from this dreaded
trouble should lose no time in giving
the Pills a fair trial. Mrs. Sophia
H. Johnson, Mozan, Sask.. says:
, "For upwards of ten years I was a
periodical sufferer from neuralgia. It
located in the side of my face and in
the jaw, which would actually click
every time 1 opened or closed my
mouth. At times the pains would be
almost unendurable, and as time
went on, my whole nervous system
seemed to be affected. 1 was constantly doctoring, hut the doctor did
not soera to be, able to give me permanent relief, and at, last 1 decided
to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I got

Heatbcote, ber aunt and guardian,
frowned at tbe whirling, but bad tu

From the "fixtures" that have Been
made already it becomes mure .ud
more apparent that this is going to
oe a "dancing season," as King
Ueorize and Queen Mary themselves
ure very tond ol dancing.
Kini! George in the lancers recalls s
very i.. rry dance when His MaiestV

a*,d a dance wt,s organized, literally
in the spur cf tne moment, on tijsr.l
one ot tne ships. The -uke was always wil,ing to join in anything that
promised a bit ol lun, so iti "recorj
time" a ball room was rigged up in
the quarterdeck. It was agreed, "ines
there was not a girl iu the whole party, thut ttiise who were to take the
ladies' r,irt» should wear wnite hand-
Ktrchiefs ou their Ieit sleeve..
Presently a "lady" approached the
present King, and with what was
meant to be a demure simper uskeJ
lor the pleasure ol a dance.
"Go awny, vou juggins,'* was ths
royal retort: "I'm a'lady'my tell, hut
I've lost my blessed handkerchief.

Another amusing story, in which
Queen Mary figured, is recalled. II
was at a state ball at Buckingham
Palace a few years ago The late
Prince Francis ol Teck, the Queen'l
brother, went up to a scion of a nobis
house, and. remarking that he was not
dancing, asked if he could hnd him a
few partners.
"No, thanks, old chap," was the re-
fily, as the man stifled a yawu; "dane-
ng is such a bore, I think I will rest
a little longer."
Presently the man in question—he
is now a lull-fledged peer—ventured to
appoach the present Queen, and re-
quest Uc honor ol a dance Hei
brother "Frank," however, had beer
beloie him.
"Thank you," was the reply of the
Queen, with a cool glance at him. "hill
dancing is such a bore, is it not!'"
His lordship went home.

In an article on curling in Canada
in The Canadian Courier, A. W. Curran harks back to the days when
woMen blocks were used.
There were very few atones in Canada betore the sixties; though the
Governor-General and tile officials at
Ottawa played with the granites.
The blocks wore hardwood, larger
at the bottom than, the top. They
weighed about four or five poundt,
an-J slipped along the ice quite eisily.
The handle was made of any old piece
of iron that could be found.
It was a great event in the different
towns when the firat pair ol stones arrived. The owner would, without exception, want to play his forty pound
rocks against the five pound blocks.
One game waa usually sufficient, as
the rocks would clear the rink ot
blocks as though they were pebb'ea
on the ice. After that, of court-,
everyone had to "dig down" and buy
a pair of "Mlsa Craigs"; and as the
players in those ancient days were all
just fresh "frae old Scotia it caua d
quite a tugging at th* heart-strings
when they parted with the wherewithal.
A pair o! curling stones in those
days were aB highly valued as a house
and lot, for the simple reason that it
you lost them you had to wait for a
pair to come Irom the old land—certainly not for their intrinsic value.
If, perchance, a stone wat broken then
the man who broke it had to pay (or
it. That was one ot the stringent
rules of the game; and Iorce of public
opinion made it a good rule to observe.
They tell a story in a town of the
north country oi a prominent men.
who had lost thousands of dollars tp -
collating without a whimper. One day,
in a close, hard game, an oppone.it,
playing a running shot, broke his
stone. That man raised more row
about that old curling stone in five
minutes than he ever hod shout losing thousands ol dollars. It took him
months to get over it. It was the
only time hit friend* had ever se.n
him really upset.
In connection with the Importst'on
of the flrst stones into the to'n ol
Ori.lia, back in 1873, there is a rathe
good story. Stonewall Jackson, a br is
Scot, waa the proud owner of tha ft-s'
pair ol stones—exact replicas ol the
pair used by the Governor -Gsnanl.
He tried to use his stone* ng ins
the blocks, and, as happened in oner
p'.accs, the blocks wer* knocked al
over the ring. Bo, the following year.
the other members had to get stones
It ao happened that one day on
soft ice 8too*wall took a runninj shot,
which "wabbled," and hitting the sh t
on the edge, a piece was chipp.d out
ot his stone. Of course, no one wat
to blame but Stonewall himse'.f. So
as nobody wat buying him a n?w
pair, he had the stone with the pec
out ol the side cut down to about half-
site—the stone at that time wore Ha',
regular pancakes, and wide. Af er
that, whenever Stonewall had a narrow port to run he would use hi-
iitii'.I stone, which was a great ad
vantage, u it would go through a
hole half the site the regular stone
would require, and saved many game.-
for him. 'tis said.
There is a decided diff»rence between the stones used then and those
In vogue now. They were.flat, less
than three inches high, and wide,
about eighteen inches across. Thev
sat very low on the ice and cauch
■ill the dirt in sight; consequently
uok was a greater factor in t eir
game. In (act, the game in those days
wat not the scientific game ilia: it
played to-day. lt wat more of a
roarin' game—but to were the timet
Now. it is a science, and must ke
practiced and played lor years b f re
a man can hope to play really will.
The old-timers never played anything but the inturn, and the sio ie»
drew very little anyhow. They sometimes tried the straight hand'e, but
the stone us-ally ended up with i ne
turn or the other, dirt on the ice doing the trick.
Now. the out-turn it played nearly
as often as the in, and the modern
stones draw a> much as ten feel on
modern ice. The stones are sn sha*'"d
that they brush aside almost any dirt,
and so a great element ol chance i-
One change significant of the times
to whicli to a more or less extent is
due the change in the tone ol the
snort, is the absence of whisky. In
the tidies, and thereafter lor forty
years, no curling game was compile
without a "guid old cutter of whisky"
—guid old rye. At the "skey" ha4
disappeared, to the bolsterousneas ha*
(add away. However, the games, in
those timet, were much more interesting to the spectator, and goodly
crowds garnered to see the curlers
make merry. After every game three
cheers wat given all round and a
tiger for good measure. Il wouldn't
hurt the game a whit to have this
leature reinstituted. It I* in keeping
with the spirit ot the game.
I'owever, those were the good old
days, when the men worked for their
lun and over their fun, and, as we
said beiore, the game is pretty well
indicative of the trend of the timet,
more scientific now, but not nearly
so physically strenuous.
