Grand  Forks Agricultural

fair this fall. They expect to make
arrangements bo that tbe judging of
all exhibits will be done on tbe 28th.
The secretary was instructed to
correspond with Geo. Horitad, secretary of the Nelson association, in

It was practically decided to add
a live stock exhibit to the fair thi*
A committee was appointed toad

Spikaae Interstate Fair
It is surprising how many fruit
and poultry raisers, and ranchers in
general, overlook the easy money to
be won at the various fairs and exhibitions beld in the Inland empire.    We have just received a copy
of tbe 1911 premium list issued by
tbe Spokane Interstate fair, which
contains an unusually generous list
of cash prizes, amounting in all to
about (36,000. This money is really
to be given away as prizes on live
stock, agricultural products and
other exhibts and, doubtless, much
of it could be won by exhibitors in
this locality if they would take the
trouble to send in exhibits.
The Spokane fair management do
a 1 tbey can to induce exhibitors to
come in, tbe ra lroads and express
companies make special reduced
rates on exhibits, and every question which might arise is carefully
explained in this piemium list, and
yet only a very small percentage of
the people wha might exhibit successfully do so. Possibly the fact
that the prizes for tbis eighteenth
annual Spokane fair hive been very
largely increased may interest new
exhibitors tbis year. We notice
tbat the apple prizes alone amount
to #1,458.50, an increase of $800
over the amount offered in 1910,
and other departments also show
substantial increases.
Copies of this particular premium
list may be had 'free by addressing
Robert H. Cosgrove, Secretary, No.

A recent report from the Klondike
shows that the gold of that region is
far from exhausted. According to
this report, it apperrs that the gold
product for 1910 was (4,081,611,
which was a gain of (485,626 over
1909 and of #792,947 over 1908. It
may be added that estimates of the
probable product of gold for this
year, now that the season is fairly
opened, range up to (5,000,000, or
nearly a million dollars better than
the product of last year.
Greenwood baseball enthusiasts
have organized a strong team, composed entirely of home talent. It is
proposed to form a.league this season between Greenwood, Grand
Forks, Phopnix and Danville, to
play for a trophy put up be an east

Irrigation Statistics for the Kettle Valley
The Sun is indebted to Mr. W. A. Cooper for tbe following cotnpila
tion regarding the various irrigation enterprises in this valley. Considering the fact that the subject bas been seriously entertained but for a few
months, it will be noticed that a splendid start has been made tn bring
every acre of land in the valley under irrigation. Next year the acreage
sbould be more than doubled.

he was not known to the latter personally, though they hud been almost
side by side three years ago in Mexico. Therefore it was possible for
Venner to get a table in the dining-
room quite close to that of the alleged
millionaire. It was all the more fortunate, as things subsequantly turn
in the matter of beer will cause him I ed out, that Fenwick had returned to
The events of the next day or bo
fully verified the  fears    oi the  two
friends.    The Bates   ease    appealed
powerfully to the huge section of the
public who delight iu crimes of the
mysterious order.   Within u couple ot
duys most of the papers were devoting much space to tlie problem.    It
so happened too, that the week wus
an exceedingly  bairren one    from  a
news point   of view;   therefore   the
Bates ci.se had tbe place of -honor.
Thero was  absolutely nothing fresh,
not a single line that pointed  to a
solution of the -problem.   Indeed, the
ingenious wuy in whicli most of the
papers contrived to fill some    three
columns a day was beyond all praise.
But both Gurdon and Venner search
ed in vain for « scrap of information
that threw any light on the identity
of the missing man.   His habits were
described at- some length, a tolerably
accurate description of his household
appeared  in  several    quarters,    hut
nothing much    beyond    that,      The
missing man's servant* were exceedingly reticent, and if they knew anything whatever   about- their    master
they hud preferred to confide it to tine
police in preference In the inquisitive
reporter.   Not a single relative turn

stood thnt the missing man wns pos
sessed of  considerable  property
It wns on the third day thafVen-
ner began to see daylight. One of the
evening papers had come out with a
startling letter which seemed to point
to a clue, though it conveyed nothing
to the police. Venner came round to
'Gurdon's rooms with n eoipv of the
ev»ning paper in his band. He laid it
hefore his friend and asked him to
rend the letter, w'-ich, though it eon-
t-ained hot a few line*-., was of absorbing interest to both of them.
"You see what this man says?"
Venner remarked. "He appears to
he a working man who vol himself
into trouble over a drinking bout.
Two days ago he wns charged with
being drunk and disorderly, nnd was
sentenced to a fine of forty .shillings
or fourteen days' imprisonment. According to his, story the money was
not forthcoming, therefore he was
taken to gaol. At the end of two days
hfs friends contrived to obtain the
necessary cash and be wns released.
He writes all this to show how it was
that he was entirely ignorant of the
startling event' which had taken
place in tho Bates case. This man
goes on to say that on the night
when Mr. Bntes disappeared he waB
passing Portsmouth (Square on hiB
way home from some public house
festivities. He was none too sober,
and has a hazy r»colleetion of what
he saw. He recollects quite clearly,
now that he has time to think the
matter over, seeing a cab standing
at the corner of the Square within
throe doors of No. 75. At the same
time a telegraph boy called «f No. 75
with a message. It wns nt this point
that the narrator of the story-stopped
to light his pipe. It was rather a
windy evoning, so that he used several matches in the process. Anyway
he stood there long enough to Bee the
telegnanb boy deliver his message to
» gentleman who npnonred to have
great diHleulty in getting to the door.
No sooner had tho telegraph boy gone
than the gentleman crept slowly and
painfully down th" steps and walked
in the direction of the cnb. Then
somebody stepped from the cab am'
accosted the cripple, who beyond nil
question was the mysterious Bntes.
The writer of the letter snys Hurt ho

called out something in n language
that ho was unable to miderstnnn
Ho rather thinks it wns Portuguese,
because amongst Ms ("How workmen
is a Portuguese artisan nn*1 th** lan-
gunge sounded something like his,"
"We aro getting on," Gurdon said.
"Thajt little tourth nbotit the Portuguese lnngunge clearly points to Fenwick."
"Of course it does," Vonnor wont
on. "But that is not all. Tho letter
goes on to sny that there was some-
thing hko a struggle, nfter which tho
ciipple gentleman wn*s bundled into
the cnb, whicli wns driven away. It
was n four-wheeled cnb, nnd the po.
culinrity ahout it wns thnt it hnd
rubber tiros, which is a most umiR-al
thing for tho typical growler. The
author of all this information says
thnt the struggle npp**nred to he of no
yory desperate nnturo. for it wns followed by nothing in tho way of n call
for help. Indeed, the workman who is
lolling all this seemed to think that
it wns more or less In tho wny of
what he calls a spree. Ho said nothing whatever to tho police about
it. fenring perhaps, that ho himBoll
was in no fit state to tell n story; and
to t?ll us all we want to know."
It was somewhere in the neighborhood of the Dooks where the man
who hi;d given his name as James
Taylor, was discovered later in the
. day. Tlio man was a fuirly intolli-
igent type of laborer, who obtained a
more or less precarious livelihood ns
a docker. As a rule, he worked hard
enough four or five hours a day whon
things were brisk, und, in slack per-
iods whon money was source, ho spent
the bost part of his day in bod.. He
hnd ono room in a large tenement
house, where the friends found him
partially dressed and reading a sporting paper. Ho was not disposed to
be communicative nt first, but the
suggestion of something in the way
of liquid refreshment stimulated his
I good nature.
I "Right you nre, * he said. "I've
bad nothing today besides a mouthful of breakfast, und when I've paid
my rent I shall huve a solitary tanner left; but I 'ope you gents are not
clown here with a view of getting a
poor chap into trouble?"
Gurdon hastened to reassure   him
on that scire.    He was balancing a
half-sovereign    thoughtfully    on    his

The man was back presently, and
professed hims"lf ready to nnswer anv
ouostions thnt might be nut to him
H*s manner grew just a little suspi-
eious as Venner mentioned the name
of Bates.
"Vou don't look like nolice." he
said. "Sneaking tiersonailv, I nin't
fond of 'em, and I don't want to get
into trouble."
"We huve nothing whatever to do
with the police," Venner aaid. "In
fact, we would rather not have anything to Uo wilh them. It so happens
that we are both interested in the gentleman that you saw getting into the
cab the other night. I have read your
letter to the paper, and I am quite
prepared to believe every word of it.
The only thing we want to know is
whether you saw the man in tho
cab "
"Which one?" Taylor asked. "There
were two blokes in the cnb."
"This is very interesting," Venner
murmured. "I shall be greatly oblig-
e 1 if you will describe both of them."
"I couldn't describe the one, guvnor," Taylor replied. "His back was
to me all the time, und when you
come to think of it, I wasn't quite so
clear fn the head as I might have
been. But I caught a glimpse of the
other cove's mug; ns he look out of
the cab the light of tbe lamp shone
on his face. He'd got a big cloak on,
o.i far as I could judge, with Uie collar turned un about his throat, and
n soft hat on his head. Ho knocks
the hat off looking out of the cab
window, then I soo as Ms head was
bald l'ke a bloomin' eag, and yellow,
snme as if he had been painted. I
can't tell you any more than that, not
il you wus to give me another 'alf-
sovereign on ton of tho first ono."
"Just nnother question," Gurdon
se.id. "Then wo won't hother you any
more. About what ace do you suppose
the man wns?"
Taylor paused thoughtfully   for
moment before ho replied. .
"Well, I should thiiik he was nnout
fifty-live to sixty," ho suid. "Looked
like some sort of a foreigner."
"Thnt will do. thank you." Vonnor
said. "We will not detain you any
longer. At tho same time I should ho
obliged if you would keep this information to voursfllf, OI course, il tho
Itolice question you, you will hnve to

subject o' this visit of ours would bo
Taylor winked nnd nodded, nnd tho
friends departed, not displeased to get
away from the vitiated atmosphere of
Taylor's room. On 'the whole, thoy
were not dissatisfied with tbo result
nl thoir expedition. At any rnte they
now bad proof positive of the fact
tbat Fenwick wns at tho bottom of tho
mysterious disappearance of the man
called Bates. .
"I don't quite soo whnt wo aro going to do next," Vonnor said. "So
far, wo have been exceedingly fortunate to find ourselves in possession
ol a set of clues which would be exceedingly valuable to the police. But
how we ure going to use those clues
i- quite another matter. What do
you suggest?"
"Keeping a close watch upon Fenwick at any rate. For that purposo it
would not bo a. bad idea to employ a
town the same afternoon and had announced his intention of dining ut
the hotel the same evening. This information Venner gave to Gurdon
when the lnttor turned up about half-
pust seven. Then the host began to
outline the plan of campaign which
he had carefully thought out.
"Fenwick is dining over there," he
said. "He generally sits witb his
back to the wall, und I have had our
'.able so altered that we enn command
all his movements, Vera, of course,
will dine with him. Naturally enoug'i
she will act us if we wore absolute
strangers to her. That will be necessary."
"Of course," Gurdon admitted. "But
isn't it a strange thing you should be
an absolute stranger to Fenwick "
"Well, it does soooi strange on the
face of it. But it is cnpable of the
easiest explanation. You see, when I
first met Vera, she wns at school in a
town somewhere removed from tho
Four Finger Mine. I saw a good deal
of her there and when finnlly she
wont up country we were practically
engaged. At her urgent request the
engagement was kept secret and when
1 followed to the mines it was distinctly understood that I should not
cull at Fenwick's house or make myself known to him except in the way
of business. As it happens wc never
ditl meet in the way of business, antl
whenever I saw Vera it was usually
by stealth. The very marriage was a
secret one, and you may charge me
fairly with showing great weakness in
tbe matter. But there, 1 have told
you tho story before, and you must
make the best of it. On the whole I
um glad things turned out as they did
for now I can play my cards in the
game against Fenwick without his
even suspecting he has rile for an
opponent. It is certainly an advantage in my favor."

A Vast Unknown Land.
Nineteen-ten hns been a red letter
year in the histpry of the Upper Fraser River, ior in June lest the woods
re-echoed the strident blast of the si-
ren of a steamboat which pushed its
way successfully up from Fort George
to Tete Jaune Cacne, conclusively
proving that, witb ease, its treacherous waters could lie navigated by a
shallow draft vessel. Next year, a
fleet of commodious stern-whe_tlers
will tear incessantly up and down,
bearing constructional material, men,
and provisions for the building of the
line. Thus, the Grand Trunk Taciflc
will eftoct two remarkable achievements in one stroke—will develop a
vast tract of unknown land by penetrating it with the iron horse, and
open a long-closed waterway to steam
The Fraser River Valley will, In the
course of a few years, become oue of
the busiest and most prosperous agricultural and industrial belts in British Columbia. As the river is tra-
veised, the mountain ranges roll well
back, leaving a wide, yawning valley
through which the river makes its tortuous way, doubling and redoubling
upon itself. To give some idea of this
extraordinary wandering, it may be
mention that whereas you must
cover 320 miles to journey by water
from Tete Jaune Cache to Fort
George, the railway, by following almost an air line, only requires 206
miles of steel to- connect the two
The whole of the valley is covered
with dense impenetrable primeval forest, .stretching from the water's edge
riglit up to the timber-line on the
mountains. Fortunately, fire has
wrought but little damage here, and
the timber is of distinct value too.
Just how many hundred million dollars this huge forest represents to the
British Columbian Government it is
impossible to say. Towering Douglas
fir are in profusion, while the spruce,
hemlock, and cedar are also prolific.

6, he delivered a lecture in Queen's
Hall, London, before a brilliant audience. He was described by The Westminster Gazette as "one of the best
story-tellers living," which is praise
indeed. Dr. Grenfell describes himself as "the most popular doctor in
his district," and as he is the only
doctor in one-quarter of a continent,
his claim is not over-stated.

The Witt Mournt   the Lou   ef   Dr.
Lundy of Portage.
Dr. Frank B. Lundy, ol Portage la
Prairie, died a lew weeks ago. A
short time before his death he drove
fifty miles across prairie, got enuixht
in a blizzard, and slept all night under his upturned cutter. Such an ex-
perience was no nnvtlty to Dr. Lundy.
He belonged to the stilt-passing type
of prairie doctor that went the trails
before there were railroads. In all
Manitoba there was no character bet-
ter known. He went to Portaee in
1882 when the caravans of Red River
carts came honking up from Fort
Garry en route to Edmonton, Battleford and Calgary. Portaee, now the
junction point of four railways, three
of them transcontinental, was th»n
the point where the old trails diverged. Dr. Lundy knew every trail, every
coulee and every hill in that pnrt of
Manitoba. He was a young man when
he started trailing; had spent a short
whilp in Bruce County, Ontario, after
graduating from Trinity in 1880. In
the twenty-seven years of his trailing
he saw many changes; more transformations in the country than in the
science of medicine. He was a characteristic "old-timer," who knew as
much ahout Indians as about white
men.. To doctor up a sick man best
of a hundred miles away wus pftrt tl
Dr. Lundy's practical religion. He
wns never known to send a patient a
bill; and he was never known to need
But one morning this "Dr. McClure," of the prnirie, was found dead
in his office With a score ot doctors
in the town where once his had been
the only shingle, he just quit—and
the long trails of Manitoba will never
feel the click of his horse's hoofs
The citizens of Portage were deeply interested in Dr. Lundy. There is
much talk ot a handsome stone memorial in the form of a statue, to
adorn a public square In the town. If
this act of benevolence is carried out.
it will be but a feeble echo of the long
line of benevolences practiced unostentatiously by Dr. Lundy.
The late doctor was bom at
Shakespeare, Ont,, eldest son of Dr.
J. B. Lundy, once of Preston, Ont.
He was educated at the old grammar
school at Oalt, Ont. He entered
Trinity Medical School, Toronto, in
1877; graduated Fellow of Trinity,
and M.B., Toronto, in 1880; passed
examination for license to practice in
Ontario that year. He practiced a
short time in Bruce County, Ont.,
going to Portage la Prairie in 1882.
He lived there continuously until his
death. Member of the Manitoba
Medical Association; he was »lso
past president of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba.
Thru Mscdonaldt In tht Senate.
In the Senate there are three veterans of the Clan Macdonald, whose
combined ages total 239 years. There
is Andrew Archibald, from Charlotte
town, who has seen 82 summers and
as many winters. William is a political stripling of 79 years. He hails
from Cape Breton, and can address
the Upper House in Gaelic. Lastly
comes William John, of Victoria, B.C..
who is 78 and hns a son old enough
to be a commander in the new navy.
The Hon. William John gave his colleague a rude shock recently when
he suggested that the only thing the
matter with the Senate was that the
majority ol its members had become
too wearied with the burden of years
to take any interest in public affairs.
This humble expression of opinion
was called forth by a motion of Senator David, himself 71 years of age,
who, when he is not writing pamphlets eulogizing Sir Wilfrid Laurier. or
acting as clerk of the City Couneil
of Montreal, is trying to solve the
problem of better distribution oi work
between the Commons and the Senate. Mr. David, therefore, moved that
a committee of both Houses be appointed to discuss this matter, but
the champion of "more work for the
money" was obliged to go about hit
task with that diplomacy brought to
a high state of perfection during his
long experience with the aldermen of
the metropolis.—Saturday Night.
Jutl Like thi Mm.
The discussions of the question of
votes for women which have taken
place in Toronto of late at a result of
the vitit of Mits Sylvia Pankhnrtt
recalls a story of a retort once made
by Sir Wilfrid Laurier to a member
of a party ol ladiet which waited upon hi*!! at a deputation, asking for
several thingt.
The main point wat the necessity of
enacting anti-cigarette legislation.
The members were well-potted W. C.
T. U. workers, and they presented
their arguments with force and ingenuity. But presently one of the ladiet
strayed from her subject, in an attempt to bring tact as well at argument to bear an appeal to tbe Premier.
"If you would only do thit for ut
and then give women votes, wo would
be glad to do something for you," the
"Ah," observed the Prime Minister,
with hit courtly smile, "you are as
bad as tbe me-, after all. Before you
wil'. give anything, you want something for yourselves."

FRIDAY, MAY 19,   1911
The latest reports from
East Kootenay. and Alberta
are not, by any means, indicative of an early settlemeut of
the dispute between the coal
operators and the miners. C.
W. Gordon, chairman of the
conciliation board, is pessimistic regarding the aspect of
settlement. The board, he
says, could have patched up a
temporary agreement, but
that had been done before,
and what was wanted was a
settlement that wouldlastsome
years. The board has adjourned without arriving at a
basis of settlement, but the
enquiry will be resumed in
three weeks and continued
until the men return to work.
There appears to be nothing
that can be done at present
to hasten an agreement between the men and the operators. It is pity, though, that
an industry capable of suspending operators in the mines
and smelters of the entire
province should be under the
control of a few private indi
viduals. It is this aspect of the
case that supplies the people
who favor public ownership of
coal mines with arguments.
To this extent the people of
this province are rapidly be
coming socialistic. While the
strike will throw thousands of
workmen in this district out
of employment, very few of
them blame the coal miners
for their enforced idleness.
The tendency is rather to
sympathize with the men now
on strike in their struggle for
better wages and more modern appliances in the mines.
It is just worth while, be
fore the speech has been for
gotten, says the Montreal Herald, to make a note of Mr.
Taft'a statement that he and
his friends were willing to give
Canada a free interchange of
all products, but tliat the Can-

The May Rod and Gun
;'In ihe Land of the Mnose Bird,"
the story of a trip eleven hundred
miles by canoe and portage-from the
north shore of Lake Superior to
Hudson's hay, via the Albany river,
forms the attractive feature of tbe
May issue of Rod and Gun in Canada. The narrator is W. J. Ma-
lone, one of the many visitors from
the United States who finds in the
wilds of Canada advantages, from a
holiday point of view, impossible to
obtain elsewhere. Mr. Malont-'s
writing is full of life and his narration is brightened by accounts of
incidents by no means usual even
in exploration trips taken so fsr
afield. The route taken was one
few white men, apart from Hudson's bay employees, have followed,
and the story is the more interesting on that account. With such a
good opening the reader is led on to
the other articles and stories, and in
particular should attention be directed to the papers on big game
problems and the destructi veness of
wolves. Accounts of western hunts
are alse good, and should interest

No New School District
Some months ago a petition.signed
by every interested property owner,
waa forwarded to the provincial department of education, praying for
the establishment of a new school district south of the Kettle river. This
week the petitioners received the
following letter, in which the superintendent of education gives his
reasons for refusing the request:
Victoria, May 5.—A. C. Sutton,
Grand Forks, B. C—Sir: In reference to tb,e petition forwarded by
you on the 8th March last for the
establishment of a school district
near Grand Forks, I beg to state thai
I am instructed by the honorable
the minister to inform you that the
inspector has vi-ited the locality
and reports adversely on the establishment of another school district
near Grand Forks. The inspector
states that even if a school was
granted and most centrally located,
it would benefit few. He also states
that of the twenty-seven children
of school age in the district, twenty-
four attend tbe Grand Forks public
schoolj and attend very regularly
even in the winter months.
Under these circumstances I am
inttructed to inform you that the
establishment of the school asked
for cannot be granted.
I have the honor to be, sir, your
obedient servant,
Alexandeh Robinson,
Superintendent of Education.

A communication was received
from Miss H. Olding, asking the
hoard to accept ber resignation at
the end of the term, as she had accepted a position on the Nelson
school staff. The board accepted

In an endeavor to retain her services, the board offered her un increase equal to the salaiy offered her
by the Nelson school, but she telt
that having taught here for four
years that she needed a change. It
wag moved that a testimonial en
dorsing her work bere be forwarded
to her, and also incorporated in the
minutes of the board.
The board decided that sufficient
souvenir medals be procured for
presentation to the scholars in com
memoration of the coronation of
King George and Queen Mary in

Jack London, that famous traveler
and author, will present his wonderful South Sea Island travelogues in
connection with the Johuson-Willard
company at the opera house for two
nights, opening on Friday, May 19.
Like Burton Holmes, Lyman Howe,
Roberson and others,tliese travelogues
offer a class of entertainment entirely
different from the average picture
shows. Martin E. Johnson, who delivers the tiavelogues, was Jack London's companion on the eventful trip
of the Smirk, which spent two and a
half years in that far off country
Asa Johnson will sing the snugs of
the native tribes. The Johnson
Willard company comes to Grand
Forks with the stamp of approval of
the largest cities throughout America
and will present one of the best popu
Iar priced attractions ever seen here.
A show lasting two and a half hours,
full of weird and interesting amusement. Willard, the man of mystery,
who shares honors with Johnson, will
have all of Grand Forks talking after
the first night. Like Houdini, Al-
bini, Hermann and other wizards, his
work will have everybody talking.
His "growing" has never been duplicated by any living man. His mind
reading and hypnotism is the most
wonderful and complete offered by
any man in his line.

Obtain an entry into some of tbe
many trembling schools in the North

find out how it is that men manage
to live without work.
Hundreds of these men attend the
ffamblin. schools regularly two nnd
three times a week and risk their all
nn the tossing of two coins.
Rings are formed. Copper Is used
at one, silver at another, gold at another. A man is paid to toss up two
coins, and the "punters" wager their
pounds, shillings, or p»nce, as the
case may be, on the coins dropping
heads or tails. "Crows" keep a look
out for the approach of the police.
One week a man may be in the gold
rine. the next in the silver, and the
third in the eopner circle. A gambler
in the West Ridins of Yorkshire was
pointed out to The Answers' cor
respondent as having lost over £2.000
in these schools, whilst another
makes a point of speculating the

How To Get New Health
and New Strength at
This Season
Even the most robust find the winter months trying to their health.
Confinement indoors, often in overheated and nearly always badly ventilated rooms—in the house, the office, the shops and the school—taxes
the vitality of even the strongest.
The blood becomes thin and watery
or clogged with impurities. Some
people have headaches and a feeling
of languor; others are low spirited
and nervous; still others have pimples and skin eruptions; while some
get up in the morning feeling just as
tired as when they went to bed.
These are nil spring symptoms that
tbe blood is out of order, and that a
medicine is needed. Many people
rush to purgative medicines in the
spring. This is a mistake. You cannot cure these troubles with a medicine that gallops through your system and leaves you weaker still,
What you need to give you health
and strength in the spring is a tonic
medicine that will enrich the blood
and soothe the jangled nerves, and
the one always reliable tonic and
blood-builder is Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills.   These   Pills not only banish

the enemy with hu bare fists, having | v*£_  »„„in„(   the   more   8eriou8 ail-
broken his Bword. Sir Redvers Bull*»r
described the act as "one of the most
courageous he had ever witnessed."
Sir Arthur is known in the navy ss
"the man who never takes a holiday,"
for he rarely goes ashore, even when
his fleet or flagship visits any port.
He regards every moment spent away
Irom the service aa wasted.
That "Curted" Weed.
In his book of reminiscences, "One
City and Many Men," Sir Algernon
West, the defendant in the recent
society case, who for some time was
Mr. Gladstone's private secretary and
most trusted confidential adviser,
says that the G.O.M. "hated th»
smell of tobacco, and once accused
me of bringing the odious aroma of
the 'cursed' weed .nto his room.
Meanly anxious to excuse myself, for
I never smoked before going into his
presence, I said I had been sitting
for half an hour with Sir William
Harcourt. Such was Mr. Gladstone's
Innocence that ne said. 'Does Harcourt smoke? I am sure if he doea
he must always change his clothes
before he comes to me, for I have
uever perceived that he smokes.'"
Feet of the Nations.
Anthropologists assert that the
Frenchman's foot is long and narrow
and well proportioned. The Scotchman's toot, according to these authorities, is high arid thick, strong and
muscular and capable of hard work.
The Russian's foot possesses one peculiarity, the toes being generally
webbed" to t' . first joint. The Tartar's foot is short and heavy, the toot
oi a certain type of savage, and the
toes are the same length. The Spaniard's foot is generally small, bat
finely curved. The Englishman's foot
is in most coses short and rather
fleshy and not, as a rule, as strong
proportionately a* it should be.

The Stomach
Needs Help
The Liver,  Kidneys  and
Bowels Must be  Kept
Active to Ensure
Not one person in a hundred can
get along at this time ot year without
using something to enliven the action
of thc liver, kidneys nnd bowels.
Too much eating of heavy artificial
foods, too little outdoor exercise, this
is thc explanation.
The liver and kidneys are overworked in their efforts to rcnuve the
poisonous waste matter from the system. They fail and become torpid
and clogged. The bowels become constipated and stomach derangements
There is one medicine which will
overcome this condition more certainly nnd more quickly than any other,
and this is Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
This medicine gets the bowels in
notion nt once and by awakening the
liver and kidneys ensures the thorough cleansing of the filtering and
excretory systems.
With the poisonous obstructions re-
moved, the digestive system resumes
its  healthful  condition,  appetite  im-
proves, pains and aches disappear as
i well as irritability and depression.
You cannot imagine a more satisfactory treatment for biliousness, con-
stipation, backache and kidney disense than Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills. One pill a dose, 25 cents a box,
at all dealers or Edmansop, Bates A
Co., Toronto.

Spltzburger wa* a great traveler.
Be bad visited every couutry on the
globe, and I verily believe that If
avlatlou bad come up In IiIh day be
would bave sailed up beyond the
clouds to tind others. Wben 1 made
his acquaintance be bad settled down
ln a place he called by a Jnwbreaklng
name signifying "dwelling" that he
bad picked up among the Eskimos
or some otber benighted people. It
was In the country situated on tbe top
of a bill and looked more like a Chinese pagoda than any otber structure.
Spltzburger waa a widower, wltb
one child, a daughter. Sbe was twenty years old and for half ber life had
traveled during half of eacb year—tbe
summer season—with ber father. Heredity and travel bad made ber as
odd as be. Itatber sbe was unique
Bhe waa of medium belgbt, lithe, wiry
'—Indeed, a feminine athlete of tbe
featherweight type. Her hair was black
and straight as an Indian's; ber eyes
large black ones, witb lashes of tbe
Spanish type. 1 wondered If her mother bad not been some dusky semtflrl-
luted creature ber father bad picked up
on tbe underside of tbe world. But
be told me his wife bad been an American creule.
Tbe Inside of tbe bouse In which
these two lived was a* curious as the
outside. Tbe furniture and ornamental articles bad apparently been gathered from all points of the globe, ranging from tbe south sea Islands to
Greenland. There was a mill for
grinding from tbe Holy Land similar
to* those used lo Bible times, a wneel
from India to spin flax on, and tbe
batbtnh had been tbe sarcophagus of
■n Egyptian mummy.
Tbe reason for my making tbe Spitz-
burgers' acquaintance was this: I was
taking 'a postgradtnate course at the
time, studying tbe customs of different races of men, tbe causes and effect* which shape tbem and tbeir relationship. Desiring some tniorma-
Hon as to tbe people of Tibet, a land
forbidden to foreigners and therefore
little known, 1 was recommended to
Spltzburger as one who had penetrated to tbe Interior of that country. I
went to nee bim. and my vtalt led to
my studying with bim.
How lung 1 remained there doesn't
matter, but It wus sndlcleut for iny
embroilment by that "little snvuge,"
as' I called his daughter, Irene. Nnt
that there wns any outward Ultima-
tlon ou my port thai I was unmlug under a spell, aud. as for the girl, I hnd
no Idea that 1 was any more to her
than anotler man. Indeed, I some-,
times fancied tbat she mlgbt have left
her heart In New Zealand. Kamchatka
or some other barbarous land. Whether Bpltxbnrger suspected the drift ot
my Inclination* I don't know, but one
day be took occasion to mention wltb
approbation tbe marriage customs In
Lapland, where one wbo marries a
girl without ber parents' consent I*
rdjndged guilty of a crime next below
murder and I* punished accordingly
I thought that he looked at me very
bard, hut "a guilty conscience needs
00 accuser." and I may hnve attached
more meaning to his words tban tbey
Tbe only thing lo Indicate tbat Irene
tad I were drifting together ao lover*
was that we look long walks together.
1 made tu excuse for this that In her
company 1 could botb exercise and
■tndy. This was true. I could gel
from her certain Information of the
domestic habits of tbe people sbe had
visited tbat 1 could not get from ber
father. One dny while we were on
one of tbese walk* I sold to ber:
"Yonr rather tells me tbat lo Upland to marry a girl wltbont her pur-
•at*' consent la punished as a crime
Please tell me how a man In that country doe* bl* courting."
"He doesn't do any courting."
"Then bow does be proceed*"
"He goes to her parent* and asks
for her. If be Is refused there Is no
hope for him. If they approve of bla
suit they tell the girl of IL Sbe may
or may not bare seen tbe lover, but
the process I* the same In either case.
Her parents give a feast at wblcb

friends are present Tbe two principals are placed opposite eacb other at

"Well, then what? I suppose tbe
girl has something to say In tbe matter, else this looking over ber suitor
woit'd be useless."
"Yes. sbe bas a goad deal to sty

The handicap Is intended to enable ber

to bim and asked him for his daughter.
"1 will Inform ber of tbe honor you

I waited a day for a reply, and as I
received none the euapense tbrew me
into an awful fret. At tbe eud of tbe

Marks Murderers Havs Left Behind
Strange marks on the bodies ol murdered persons have played an important part in bringing home the guilt
of the perpetrators on very many occasions.
Rarely, indeed, have they been so
suggestive ol melodramatic mystery
as the letters cut on the cheeks ol
j the man Beron found murdered on
Clapham Common, in London, recent
ly, but there are many instances ol
sirong dramatic interest.
An example may be c'ted in connection wit. the murder of Jael Denny,
lhe belle of the village ot Dodding-
liurst, near Brentwood.
The poor girl was found lying dead
in a field with a cord twisted in several coils round her neck.
Suspicion fell upon her sweetheart,
Thomas Drory, but there was no evidence against him beyond the fact
\ that it was known that lu wus tired
of her. On one of the girl's wnsts
were noticed two rows ol marks,
which, on further examination, were
determined by the doctor to have been
caused by teeth. The marks were
vc.y distinct and very evenly arranged. The doctor suggested that the
marks should be compared with
Drory's teeth.
This was done, and it was found
that the two corresponded exactly,
it did not seem much to hang a man
upon, but it sufficed; for alter the
discovery Drory was terrified into con-
leasing that while pretending to caress
his victim, he slipped the cord roum>
lier neck .ami was forming a noose
when she started to her r-et, put het
hand inside the loop, and it was then
tl.at he bit her wrist to make her
withdraw her fingers.
Eugene Chantrelle, who murdered
his wife in Kdioburgh to obtain insur
gnce money, had his guilt established
through a brown mark found on the
lac. of the lady and a brown stain on
the pillow.
The crime was one of exceptional
craftiness. Chantrelle broke a gut-
pipe, so that the gas escaping into
the room should be supposed to be
the cause of denth.
It so happened, however, that Dr
Littlejohn, the medical officer of Edinburgh, was an authority ou the effects
of coal-gas, and he decided that the
symptoms shown were not those ol
suffocation, but of narcotic poisoning.
They were caused by extract cf opium,
and on this discovery Chantrelle woe
arrested, tried, and found guilty.
The detestable crime ol Bishop and
Williams—miscreants of the Burke
and Hare type—was brought to light
hy the discovery of a b'.nekish mark
on the neck of a boy whose body th*
precious pair sold for dissecting pur.
,. 6 >>, ti<» surg-ons of ''.ine's Col
lege Hospital. Mr. Partridge, tht
anatomical demonstrator, was curium
to know the meaning of the mark, and
lound that although the spinal marrow was injured, there had not been
sullieient violence to cause death. II
was alterwards established that the
boy had been enticed to a den in
Bethnnl Green, drugged, and then
drowned in a well.

The Collecting Monio.
"Collectors of old prints, curios,
etc., sre often the most incorrigible oi
thieves," suid a British Museum attendant. "For instance, when the
Garrick bequest to the British Museum, and Ihe Maione bequest to the
Bodleian Library, enme to be examined, it was lound that both collections included property stolen Irom
Dulwich College.
"Some years ago a number of very
valuable books were stolen Irom the
Inns of Court Library; and, in fuel,
this kind of thieving is always going
"The lavorite method with the
thieves is to grow one finger nail
very long and sharp. Then, when no
one is looking, they cut out 11 title-
page, or a plate, Irom some volume
ol great value.
"And, ns a rule, the stolen property
is not discovered till the potiesfoi
dies, and sn the thief it seldom

Merino blood is tbe quick and eure
way of restoring It It would be a
tremendous calamity If those wbo

Tbe great part played by Merinos
In our mutton Industry la not generally
realized, says tbe National Stockman.
The Merino ewe is tbe foundation ot
tbat Industry on the ranges and oa
many of tbe farms tn tbis country. Tbe
Merino's flocking qualities, lu hardiness. Its ability to prosper without
grain. Its capacity for wool bearing
, and Its ability to rear one good market

the sheep Industry In 1 large part of
our country. The Merino ewe and tbe
Mutton ram are for many, if not for
most, lamb raisers the most economical and consequently moot profitable

Tbe Merino's place tn American sbeep
