City Health Officer Kington addressed the council in support of tbe
city properly housing the ambulance, which bad bean purchased at
a cost of $700 or 1800 jointly by the
Oranby company, the city, and by
public nonations. It was a shame
to allow the vehicle to stand out in
the sun and rain, • where it would
soon become a total wreck. If
boused at tbe smelter, it would be
of no benefit except to the Oranby
company. In bis opinion, the city
could not disclaim sufficient ownership in the vehicle to provide shelter for it. A small shed or lean-to
could be erected at little cost at the
livery barn or in the oity yard. The
chairman of tbe board of works was
instructed to make arrangements
for tbe erection of a shed for the

The Northwest Amusement company opened its "Athletic Circus"
and other attractions for a week's
engagement near the tennis grounds
in this city on Monday last. The
company, which comprises about
150 people, came here direct from
Spokane. The manager states that
the business done here has been
satisfactory, big crowds having witnessed the two daily performances.
The engagement will close tomorrow. The feature show, "the
athletic circus," include some clever
trapeze work and otber excellent
feats of strength and agility. There
are also funny clowns and other
features tbat help bo make up a
first-class entertainment, which is
amply worth the moderate price of
admission. Tbe side attractions are

The Sun has two objects in view in
printing the above statement. The
cost of production in the Kettle val-:
ley is about the same as in Idaho,
consequently the profits, with an *
market, uie as great here as across;
the line. It should also demonstrate
that the American fruit market is as,
good as our own.

If Grand Forks could secure an attraction similar to the circus showing
here this week for the agricultural exhibition dates next fall, the "greatest
show en earth" could be promised
visitors. There is no doubt regarding
the magnitude and quality of the
exhibits of fruit, poultry and farm
products, but a few good attract ons
would add zest to the occasion.

On June 1 the enumeration ofthe
census will commence, and particular interest attaches to it by reason
of the talk of a general election and
a redistribution of representation
previous to it. Archibald Blue,
chief census officer, is quoted as saying that all the arrangements for
taking the census are compiled.  "It
Times Have Changed
When I was young 1 used to go
adnwn the long potato row, aud
whack the weeds out with a hoe. Or,
early in the summer morn, with one
old mulo, morose, forlorn, I'd go to
cultivate the corn All through the
summer day I toiled, my raiment
reeking wet and soiled, and I was
fried and baked and broiled. And
when at night I sought my bed my
feet were like two tons of lead, and
till next morning I was dead. When
to the country I repair, and see the
wondrous changes there, I always go
up in the air. For now the farmer
surely feels like Cleopatra us he reels
along on plows with painted wheels.
He drives a large and IihiuUiiu.c team;
his   Implements aro   like  a dream;
spring seats ure spiked on every beam,
Hu blithely tills bis fertile lands, mul
never soils his lily bands, unr in the
mud and gumbo stands. His pants
are creased and show un dirt; his feet
ure by tho thorns unhurt, he often
wears a parboiled shirt. And when ;
he goes to town he makes the journey
in a brace uf shakos; his auto runs to
beat the snakes. He has a gas plant
of his own, a bathroom and a tele j
phono, and often he hus scads to loan.

former that part of the program of
tbe Western Development league,

of emigration now pouring into the
Dominion of Canada from the United States and elsewhere to the Pacific slope country, the Spokane
Chronicle says: "It is not necessary
to 'knock' Canada to secure settlers
for the great states of tbe northwest.
Plenty of good land and abundance
of fine opportunities can be found on
both sides of the boundary; and
there are plenty of people in the
crowded districts of the Atlantic
coast and in Europe wbo would
make first-class homeseekers if tbey
only knew wbat tbey are missing by
not coming to the northwest. Don't
'knock' Canada. It is a grand land,
and it is occupied by people wbo
makes the best kind of neighbors
the United States or any other nation need desire. Butjgo after the people wbo do not know the facts about
tbe great northwest—all tbe northwest on both sides of tbe line—and
tell them of the opportunities that
await them in Washington, Idaho,
Oregon and Montana. Do that
work thoroughly and the results
will be good enough for any state."

] W. Durham, former editor-in-cbief
of the Spokesman-Review, also a
speaker, paid a high compliment to
the several governments, the railroads and commercial organizations
of Canada on the methods pursued
to encourage prospective homeseekers to settle and develop the country
districts of the Dominion. Referring especially to what is being accomplished in tbe western provinces,
he said the equal of that work has
never been seen elsewhere on tbis
continent or in the civilized   world.
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 thc
north shore of Lake Superior to
Hudson's bay, via the Albany river,
forms the attractive feature of the
Muy issue of Rod and Gun in Canada. The narrator is W. J. Ma-
lone, one of tbe many visitors from
the United Slates who finds in lbe
wilds of Canada advantages, from a
holiday point of view, impossible to
obtain elsewhere. Mr. Malone's
writing is full of life and his narration is brightened hy accounts of
incidents by no means usual even
in exploration trips taken so far
afield. Tbe route taken was one
few white men, apart from Hudson's buy employees, have followed,
and thu slory 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 he directed to.the papers nu big game
problems and tbe destruotiveness of
wolves. Accounts of western hunts
are alse good, and should interest
hunters in eastern and central Canada.

"If I did not know you as well as
I do." Venner snid grimly, "I should
Bay you had been drinking. Do you
mean to tell nie that you sat in this
dining room last night, and that it
was furnished in the luxurious way
you have described? Do you mean to
tell me that you sat here, opposite
our cripple friend, waiting for him
to ehoot you? Ar you perfectly certain that we have made our way into
the right house? You have no doubt
on that score?"
"Of course I haven't," Gurdon said
a little hotly. "Would there be two
houses close together, both of them
with a broken grating over the cellar? I tell you this is the same house
right enough. It was just in this
particular spot I was seated when
the lights went out, and your wife's
fertility of resource saved my life
It may be possible that the electric
frfses have not yet been repairer!
At any rate, I'll see."
Gurdon laid his hand upon the
switch and snapped it down. No
light came; the solitary illuminating point in the room was afforded
by the match which Venner held in
hie hand.
"Tbere," Gurdon said, with a sort
of gloomy triumph. "Doesn't that
prove it? I suppose that our cripple
friend took alarm and has cleared
out of the house."
"Thnt's all very well, bnt it is almost impossible to remove the furniture of a (.rent place like this In
the course of a day."
"My dear chan, I don't think it
has been Temoved in the course of a
day. Didn't you notice just now
what a tremendous lot ol dust we
stirred up as we were going over the
house? My theory is this— only
three or four of the rooms were furnished, and the rest of the house wns
closed. When I made my escape
last night, the cripple must have taken alarm and gone eway from here
ae speedily n* possible. What renders the whole thing more inexplicable is the fact that your wife could
explain everything II Bhe pleased.
But after a checkmate like this. I
don't Bee the slightest reason for staying here any longer. The best thing
we can do is to pet back to my looms
and discuss the matter over a whiskey and soda and cigar. But. talking
about cigars, will yon have the good-
nens to look at this?"
From the emptv grate Gurdon ■picked tip a half smoked cigar of a somewhat peculiar make and sham*.
"I want you to notice this little
bit of evidence," he said. "This is
the very cigar that the cripple e«ve
me last night. I can't say that I altogether enjoyed smoking it, but it
was my tip to humor him. I smoked
that much. When the white lady
came in I naturally pitched the end
of the cigar into the fireplace. In
the face of this I don't think you will
accuse me of dreaming."
More than one cigar wns consumed
before Venner left his friend's rooms
but even the inspiration of tobacco
failed to elucidate the solitary point
at issue. What had become of the
cripple, and where had he vanished
so mysteriously? Gurdon was still
debating this point over a late breakfast the following morning when Venner came in. His face was flushed
and his manner wns excited. He enr
ried a copy of nn early edition of nn
evenino- pnper in his band—the edition which is usually issued by most
papers a little after noon.
"I think I hnve discovered something," he suid. "It wns quit,, hv nc-
cident but you wiM not fail to he
interested in something in the Comet. It alludes to tlie disappearance,
of a gentlemnn enlled Bntes. who
seems to hnve "vanished from his
house in Portsmouth Square, Yon

Gurdon pushed his coffee cup away
nnd lighted a cigarette. He felt Lhat
something of importance was coming.
"I suppose I ought to know tin*
nnme of the square," lie said grimly.
"Seeing that in a house there the
night before last I nearly lost my life.
But please go on. I see you hnve
something to tell me that is worth
"That's right,"' Venner said. "Most
of it is. in this pnper. It appears that
the aforesaid Mr. Pates is a gentleman of retiring disposition and somewhat eccentric habits. Ae far as one
can gather, he has no friends, but
lives quietly in Portsmouth Square,
his wants being ministered to by a
body of servants who have been in
his employ for yenrs. OfN necessity,
Mr. Bates is n man of wealth, or he
could not possibly live in a house
the rent of which cannot be less than
five or six hundred a year. As arid,.
Mr. Bates rnrely haves his house,
hut lust night he seems to hnve gone
out unattended, and since then, he
hns not been seen."
"*Stop n moment," Gordon exclaimed eagerly. "I am beginning to sec
daylight at last. Whnt wns the number of the house where this Bnles
lived?    I meun the  number of    the
Venner turned to his paper and
ran his eye down the printed column
Then he smiled as he spoke.
"The number of the house," he
said, "is 76."
"I knew if," Gurdon said excitedly. "I felt pretty certain of it. The
man who has disappeared lived at
No. 75, and the place where we had
jour ndventure, or rather, I had my
adventure, is No. 74. Now, tell me,
who was it who informed the police
of the disappearance of Mr. Bates?
Some servant, I suppose?"
"Of course; and the servant goes
on to suggest that Mr. Bates had
mysterious enemies who caused him
considerable trouble from time to
time. But now I come to the interesting part of my story. At the foot
of the narrative which is contained
in the Comet that I hold in my hand,
is a full description of Mr. Bates."
"Go on." said Gurdon breathlessly.
"I should be little less than an idiot
if I did not know what was coming."
"I thought you would guess," Venner said. "A name like Bates implies
middle age and respectability. But
this Bates is described as young and
exceedingly good looking. Moreover,
he is afflicted with a kind of pnrnly-
siB, which renders his movements
slow and uncertain. And now you
know all about it. There is not the
slightest doubt that this missing
Bates is no other than our interesting
friend, the good looking cripple. The
only *point which leaves one in doubt
is the fact that Mr. Bates is a respectable householder, living at 75, Port-
mouth Square, while the man who
tried to murder you entertained you
at No. 74, which house, now, is ab.
solutcly empty. We need not discuss
that puzzle at the present moment.
Iiecause there are more important
things to occupy our attention. There
can be no doubt, that this men who
calls himself Bates has been kidnapped iby somebody. You will not have
much difficulty in guessing the name
of the culprit"
"I guess it at once," Gurdon said
"If I mention the name of Mart
Fenwick, I think I have snid the last
A  New  Phase
There was not the slightest doubt
that Gurdon hnd hit the mark. \a
far as they could see at present, the
man moBt likely to benefit by the
death or disappearance of the cripple
waB Mark Fenwick, Still it was impossible to dismiss the thing in this
casual way, nor could it be forgotten
that the cripple had actually been
present at the Grand Empire Hotel
on the night when the alleged millionaire received his message by
mAaus of the mummy finger. Therefore, logically speaking, lit was only
fair to infer that on the night in question Fenwick had not been acquainted with the personality of the cripple. Otherwise the latter would have
scarcely ventured to ahow himself in
a place where his experiment had
been brought to a conclusion.
On the other hand it was just possible thnt Fenwick hnd been looking
for the cripple for some time past.
But all this was more or less in the
air, though there was a great deal to
be snid for the conelusion «t which
the two friends had arrived,
"I work it out like this," Venner
said, after a long, thoughtful pause.
"You know all ahout the Four Fin
ger mine; you know exactly what
happened to the Dutchman Van Fort
after the murder of La Fenu. It
will be fresh in your recollection how
hy some mysterious agency the fingers of the Dutchman were conveyed
to ihis wife, though he himself was
never seen again. It Is quite fair to
infer that Fenwick has contrived to
get hold of the same mine, though
thnt dangerous property does not
seem to bave harmed him ns much
as it did the other thief. Still, we
know that he has lost nil the fingers
of his left hand, nnd we hnve evidence of the fnct thnt the vengennce
*hns been worked out in the snme
mysterious fnshion as it wn*. wcrked
out on the Dutchman. We know, too
who is nt tlie botte/n of the plot, we
know that the cripple could tell ua
all about it if he liked. Obviously,
this snme cripple is n dendlv enemy
of Fenwick's. And, no doubt Feri-
wick hns found out where to lny his
hnnds upon his mnn quite recently.
Fenwick is n clever mnn. he is bold
and unscrupulous, nnd without qucR.
tion, be set to work nt once to get
the better ol the cripple. Of course.
tbis may be nothing but a wrong
theory of mine, nnd it mny lend us
astray, hut it is nil I enn ace to work
upon   nt   present."
"I don't, think you nre very fnr
wrong." Gurdon said, "hut I am sfill
puttied nliout tho house in Portsmouth Square."
"Which house do you mean?"
Venner nsked.
"The one in which my ndventure
took plnce. The one from which the
furniture vanished  so mysteriously."
"Thnt seems to me cnpnble of an
easy explanation," Venner replied.
"There Is no' doubt tbat the man
called Bntes nnd the cripple, nre one
and the same person. You must nd
mit lhat."
"Yes. I admit thnt freely enough
Go on."
"Well, this Bntes. ns we shnll call
him. hus a large establishment nt 75
Portsmouth Square. The house next
iloor wns eniply, possibly it belonged to Mr. Bntes. He bad a whim for
furnishing a room or two in nn empty
house, or perhaps there wiib some
more sinister purpose behind it. Anyway, after you had blundered on the
place nnd lind taken your life in your
hands, it became necessary for the
man to disappear from No. 74. Therefore, he hnd thai furniture removed
at once. I daresay if we investigated
tbe house carefully we should find
that there was some means of communication between the two; at least
that is tbe only explanation I can
think of."
"You've got it," *Gurdon cried.
"Any money, you are right. But I
am sorry this man has vanished in
thiB mysterious way because it checks
our investigations at the very outset.
The last thing you wanted in. this
thing was police iiixerference. ! Now
the whole thing has got into the papers nnd the public ure sure to take
the mntter up. It is the very class
of mystery that the cheap press loves
to dwell upon. It hns all the attributes of the cause celebre. Here is
a handsome man. picturesque looking,
a cripple into the bargain, a man
leading an absolutely secluded life,
and the very laat person in the world
one would expect te have enemies.
He is very rich, too, nnd lives in one
of the finest horses in the West End
of London. He disappears in the
most mysterious manner. Unless I
am greatly mistnken, within the next
two or three days London will Se discussing this matter and the papers
will be full of it."
"I nm afraid you are right," Venner
admitted; "but I don't seo how we
are going to gain anything by telling
the police what we have found out
As you know, I investigated TRIs matter solely in the interests of the woman I love, and with the one intention of freeing her life from the cloud
that hangs over it. In anv other
circumstances I would go direct to
Scotland Yard nnd tell them everything we know. But not now. I
think you will apree with me that we
should go ouir own way and say nothing to anybody about our discovery."
(To be continued.)
Prompt Action Followed
A member of the peace committee
saw two youths fighting. He pushed
through the crowd and appealed to
the combatants to desist. "My good
young fellows, settle your disputes by
arbitration. Each of you choose half
a dozen friends to arbitrate."
"Hurrah!" yelled the crowd. "Do
as the gentleman says."
Having seen the twelve arbitrators
selected to the satisfaction of both
sides, the man of peace went on his
way rejoicing.
Half an hour later he returned that
way and found the whole street in
an uproar. -
"Good gracious I What is the matter now?" asked the peacemaker.
"Shure.   sor,"  said    a    bystander,
the arbitrators are at work."
Face Sores and Eruptions
Zam-Buk Will Quickly Heal.
The approach of Spring finds many
people with unsightly face sores,
eruptions, boils, etc. In this connection Zam-Buk is invaluable. An
illustration of the way in which it
cures even the most serioua and
chronic cases of eruptions, sores and
ulcers, is provided by Mr. R. H. Barker, of Glencairn, Ont.   He says:
"I never could have believed that
any remedy could cure so quickly and
nt the same time so effectively as
Zam-Buk cured me. My face began
to be covered with a kind of rush,
which itched and irritated. This rash
then turned to sores, which discharged freely and began to spread.
I first tried one thing and then
another, but nothing seemed to do
me much 'good, and the eruption got
worse and worse until my face was
just covered with running sores.
"Apart from the pain (which wns
very bad), my face was such a terrible sight that I was not fit to go out.
This was my state when someone advised me to try Zam-Buk. I got a
supply and within a week I could
see that the Bores were rapidly healing. A little longer, and Zam-Buk
had healed them completely, and my
skin waB as clear as if I had never
had a sore. We shall never again be
without Znm-Buk in the house."
Znm-Buk is unequalled for Spring
rashes, eruptions, children's sores,
scalp diseases, ringworm, ulcers, abB-
cesses, eczema, tetter, piles, cuts,
burns, bruises, and skin injuries and
diseases generally. All druggists and
stores sell at 50c. box, or post free
from Znm-Buk Co., Toronto, for price.
Refuse hnrmful imitations. Znm-Buk
Soap, which mny be hnd from any
druggist at 25c. a tablet, should be
used instend of ordinary soap in all
cases of eruptions and skin diseases.
"An heirloom," explained the farmer's wife to her 13-year-old boy, "in
something that has been handed
down from father to son and in some
instances highly prised."

What You Need in Spring is
a Blood Building
A tpring medicine is an actual necessity to most people. Nature demands it as an aid in carrying off
the impurities that have accumulated
in the blood during long winter
months of indoor life. Unfortunately
thousands of people who recognize
the necessity for a spring medicine
do not know what is best to take
and dose themselves with harsh, griping purgatives.
This is a serious mistake. Ask
any doctor and he will tell you that
the use of purgative medicines weakens the system, but docs not cure
disense. In the spring thc system
needs building up—purgatives cannot
do this—they weaken you still more,
The blood should he mnde rich, red,
pure, and only a tonic medicine can
do this. The best blood building,
nerve restoring tonic medical science
has yet discovered is Dr. Willinms'
Pink Pills. Every dose of this medi-
eine. actually makes new, rich blood.
This new blood, strengthens every or-
(ran, every nerve nnd every part of
the body. This is why Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills cure headaches and backaches, rheumatism and neuralgia,
banish pimples and eruptions, and
give a glow ol health to pale and
sallow cheeks. Men, women and
growing buys nnd girls who tnke Dr.
Willinms'  Pink  Pills  ont well,  sleep
11. and feel bright, active and
strong. If you need a medicine this
spring—and most likely you do—try
this great reviving tonic and feel the
new life, new health, and new
strength it will put into you.

FRIDAY, MAY 12,   1911
The Kettle valley is rapidly
advancing in the fruit growing industry, and it will not
be long until it will be entitled
to be styled the premier fruit
producing district of the province. There is a general feeling here that everything in the
orchard should be up to date.
Our orchards now cover more
than a thousand acres, and
the acreage is being increased
every year. Irrigation plants
will be installed this year in
al^he bearing orchards. The
next improvement that should
be agitated by the Farmers'
institute is the installation of
orchard heaters. This spring
they have not been needed,
but in one or .two past years
they would have saved the
major portion ofthe fruit crop,
and it is just as will to be prepared for emergencies in the
future. To say that these
heaters may be required any
spring in the future to save
the blossoms from being killed
by frost, docs not imply that
our climate is not ideal for
fruit growing, because orchard heating is now a recognized necessity in all the
Pacific states south of the international boundary line.
The institute should gather
data on this subject. The Sun
understands that this is an inexpensive way of preventing late spring frosts in

In this medicine are linseed, turpentine and other well known ingre-
clients of unmistakeable value in the
cure of colds. It is pleasant to take,
so much so that children delight to
use it.
So generally is this great medicine
used that several imitations have
been put on the market. All alike in
name only. They are not made from
the same formula, nor do they bear
the name of Dr. Chase.
You know what you ean expect
from the use of Dr. Chase's Syrup of
Linseed and Turpentine, but you cannot put much faith in an imitation
which sells on the reputation of the
article it imitates.
On every bottle of the genuine will
be found the portrait and signature
of A. W. Chase, M.D., the famous,
Receipt book author. This is for your
protection and for the protection of
your children. Be sure to get the
genuine, even if it costs a few cents

Canada Cement Company, Limited..
Annual Report of the Board of Directors.
Your Directors beg to present herewith the annual statement of the affairs and financial position
of the Canada Cement Coinpany, Limited, as of the 31st December, 1910. .
In presenting the Balance Sheet, we call attention to the Company's strong financial position
as disclosed by the large amount of cash on hand, and other quick assets, and the comparatively
small amount of current liabilities. After providing for interest on our Bonds and Dividends on our
Preferred Stock for tlie year, we have been able to set up reserves -for depreciation, extraordinary repairs and renewals, bad debts, etc., and carry forward a substantial balance to 8urplua Account.
The consumption of cement during the post year was not as large as anticipated. Our business
also suffered on account of the Railways not being able to meet our full requirements for cars during
the heavy  shipping  season;  consequently,  we  carry over from last year 781,116 barrels of cement.
Early in 1910 the price of our product was fixed at a lower price than cement had ever been
sold for in Canada, excepting for a short period in 1909, but your Directors are pleased to state
that the anticipated savings in manufacturing and distributing our products were such that they were
able to still further reduce this price.
We trust, when you consider the above mentioned conditions, and also the fact that during 1910
our plants were only operated to 67.6 per cent, of their capacity, the profits shown will be satisfactory
to the Shareholders.
During the current year we look for a larger natural demand, which demand will be stimulated by continuing to manufacture a strictly high grade article, and by selling it at the lowest possible price. This anticipated increase will enable us to operate our plants to better advantage than in
the past, but we do not expect that the demand will be sufficient to enable us to put into operation
either of the two plants which have been idle since the organisation of this Company. However, it is
confidently expected that the increased demand, and increased output, will^ result in further savings
in the cost of manufacture and distribution, and it is the policy of your Directors to give your customers the benefit of these reductions.
The Shareholders' profits will depend on the increased volume of tlie Company's business, the
policy of the Company being the maintenance of such a stable position as will insure regular and
uniform payments of interest on its bonds and dividends on its Preferred Stock, and at the same time
be in a position to withstand any unforeseen emergency that may arise consequent on business depression or otherwise, which condition naturally necessitates the accumulation el, and the maintenance
of, a large cash reserve.
It is also the policy of the Company to equalize the price of cement throughout Canada in so
far as tlie physical conditions make such possible, and in furtherance of this policy, your Directors
have arranged to purchase a site near Winnipeg, on which they will erect, this year, a mill to grind
clinker, which clinker will be shipped from one of our Eastern mills. The buildings, machinery, etc.,
will be planned so that, should it at any time in the future be advisable, a Burning Department can
be added, and the clinker produced on the property.
And further, an agreement has been entered into whereby this Company expects to acquire, in
the near future, a properly at Exshaw, which, added to our Calgary plant, and tlie projected plant at
Winnipeg, will put us in the position of anticipating any extraordinary growth in the consumption of
cement in thc Great West.
With a view of educating the public, and popularizing tlie use of cement, in addition to the ordinary advertising, thc Company has published a small book illustrating some of the many uses to
which cement may be put, for whicli book there has been a great demand, 25,000 applications for same
having been received during tile past six months.
For the purpose of stimulating interest in the Company on behalf of the Employes, both in
efficiency and cheapening production, as well as crenting a feeling of mutual goodwill, your Directors
deem it expedient to introduce a system, already adopted bj several large industrial corporations with
beneficial results, viz., to enable employes to become the possessors of Preferred and Common Stock
at prices which will bc attractive to them, thc employes pnying a fixed amount per share per month
out of their earnings, and the Company carrying the stock for them, charging a rute of 5 p.o. interest. If the plan is put into effect, all dividends will be credited to the employees applying for the
stock. Snid stock will be held in trust for tlie employe for a term of five years, excepting in exceptional cases, such as death, when his heirs will receive what benefit a deceased employe has derived
from subscribing to the stock.
Your Directors feel thnt thc policy, as herein outlined, will, as nearly as possible, make the interests of the consumers, the employes, ond the shareholders identical, and will inure to the most enduring and beneficial results for all concerned.
All of which is respectfully submitted,
On behalf ol the Board of Directors,

New Government Buildings.
Samuel Hooper, provincial architect
tor Manitoba, is preparing plans for
new Government buildings, to cost
over $3,000,000, according to estimates.
The proposed buildings include new
legislative buildings, a new agricultural college and a new asylum at
Brandon, to replace that destroyed by
fire about six weeks ago.
If Improperly cooked
beef kidneys are a
coarse dish, but when
carefully prepared they
make an excellent stew,
ltemove all superfluous
fat trim tbem aud cut
them into chunks. Let
tbem soak ln cold salted water for about an
hour. Rinse tbem very thoroughly and
then set them over the Are In fresh
cold water. When they come almost to
the boiling point and begin to show
scum on tbe surface pour off tbe water
and add fresh cold water. A better
way, If one haa time, la to remove tbt
kidneys, put them ln a new pot or lay
them aside a moment until the pot they
were cooked ln haa been thoroughly
washed out. Then pnt them back. In
order to get tbe strong flavor out of
this meat It la necessary to remove aa
much scum and blood from lt as possible. Let them reheat In water a second time. Tben pour off tbis second
water and treat aa before. It may be
necessary, to do It a third and a fourth
time also. Wben the atage la reached
ln which the water la quite clear and
free from scum cut up one or two
onions—a good sized one for every kidney—one or two small carrots and one
or two potatoes. Pnt tbem into tbe
water around tbe meat and cook slowly for 'about two hours or ontll a
gravy Is formed. Borne cooks add a
little lemon Juice or part of tbe yellow
peel of a lemon to the stew. Tbe car-
rota and onions may be left ont and
tbe kidneys stewed by themselves, the
gravy being flavored only wltb a tiny
glaaa of wine and lemon Juice.
Potato Cake.
Two cnpfuls of sugar, two cupfnls
of flour, one cupful of butter, one
large cupful of English walnuts, one
cupful ot potatoes, masbed and seasoned, ready to serve; one and one-
half cupfula of chocolate, grated; one-
half cupful of milk, five egga, using
all the yolka aud wbltea of three,
keeping two whites for boiled frosting; two teaapoonfuls of baking powder, one eacb of clovea, clnnamoo. allspice and nutmeg, one each of lemon
aud vanilla. Bake either In loaf or
layers. Cream butter and sugar. Add
milk, then yolks of eggs, beaten high;
tben potatoes, soft spices, chocolate
and baking powder ln flour, and add
to egga and butter. Tben add beaten
wbltea and lastly tho nuta. Will keep
fresh for a week or ten daya.
Split Pea Sou*.
For split pea soup, ao good In thia
cold weather, soak a quart of split peas
overnight In the morning put tbem
on the atove In plenty of fresh cold
water, about foor times as much water
aa peaa. Add a large piece of salt
pork, half a good aimed carrot a good
slsed leek, two potatoes of medium
else, one root of parsley, ooe teaspoonful of thyme, one large turnip, a
bunch of celery tlpa, a large slice of
bread and aalt aud pepper to taste.
Let the soup boll all day, adding fresh
water aa lt bolls down. Strain before
A Pino Sauce.
Apples and cranberries are very
good cooked together, abont balf and
half. Let a quart of tbe mixture cook
with about a cupful of water or Just
enough to prevent burning. At tbo
end of twenty minntea add two cup
fnla of granulated sugar and let the
mixture cook for about ten minutes
more. Turn Into molds and serve
wben cold. Tbe apples seem to mellow tbe berries, and tbe sauce will be
preferred to one entirely of berries by
those wbo do nol like tbe sharpness
of the latter when cooked alone.
Funny Things Yeu Didnt Know About
Our Nomenclature.
Surnames are not what they seem,
and some of the most distressing contain a wealth of meaning.
Take, lor example, the surname with
which many people think they are
r-ursed—8nooks. This, by no means,
seems to be an imposing cognomen;
but, as* a matter of fact, it is a name
of great antiquity, and one of wliich
nobody need be ashamed. In realitv,
it is a contraction of "Sevenoak." It
was first corrupted to Sennocs, which,
in l.a turn, was corrupted to Snooks
ol to-day.
The original bearer of the name of
Legless was so called merely because
he was a lawyer. Originally, the name
was spelled Laegless, the expression
signifying "learned in the law."
Strangely enough. Lawless is derived
from exactly the same source, and
signifies exactly the opposite to its
apparent meaning.
Take the case of the surname Heart.
It is really a corruption of Hard,
which was a name given to show
that the owner waa a man of firm
character and resolute bearing.
. 9n^,n'U81 eIttend P**y W the poor
individual burdened with such a name
as Gumboil. Yet those who possess
the name may be interested to know
thst it, too, has nothing at all to do
with any part of the anatomy. It
denotes that its first bearer was a man
of considerable importance snd great
power in the state. It is derived from
the Norse word "gunbald," which it-
self has nothing to do with any affliction, but means "bold in war."
It is quite wrong to assume that
the name of 8mith is derived from
the fact that the original bearer9 were
workers in metal. In reality, Smith is
a very fine old name, far more ancient
than Anglo-8axon. The oldest-known
bearers of the name were brewers,
and it was in use many thousand ol
years ago in mighty Egypt.
Such names as Swearing and Gambling show how the original meaning
has become corrupted.i Swears and
Swearing are derived from the o.der
Sweor, which comes from an Anglo-
Saxon word meaning "honorable"
"Gambling comes from Gamling.
which comes from a Norse word sig-
nifying "old descent." The ending
'ing" to  a  surname  simply   mean.-
son   of."   Thus,    Browning   mean-
son    of    Brown,"    and    Dunning.
Dunn's son."
Apparestly, a very Ignoble surname
is tremble, a name which might niakt*
one imagine that the ancestor ol Mr.
Tremble was a craven-hearted creature. Still, the exact opposite is lhe
case, for the name is only a corruption of the ancient word "trumbald."
which signifies "steadfast and bold."
Any individual rejoicing in the
name of Mr. Earwig may be proud in
the fact that originally the name
meant the "boar of battle." The surname Mouse denoted at first a man ol
great courage; while Mr. Ratt gels
his name from the tact that the first
bearer of the name was a wise person,
who gave "counsel" to the king.
Goose, Gosling, and Jocelyn are cor
ruptions of a word which originally
denoted" the "Goths." Tbe first Mr.
Gander was an individual called "the
wolf"; while the original Mr. Duck
was a "doughty" man.
No; surnames sre not whst they
seem. For instance, Lind appears tn
be a somewhat charming name; al!
the same, it is derived from a T*-u
tonic word meaning a "snake." The
apparently quiet and harmless sur-
-nm" Wren comes from a word whir-h
denotes "rapine." Then, Fish, though
such an innocent name in appearand-,
originally meant "impetuous." That
common surname Haddock is derived
Irom a word meaning "war."
Never judge a person from his
Tta Wafers.
For tht Virginia wafers tbat ara
served with afternoon tea and other
light repasts work a couple of table-
spoonfuls of butter Into two cupfuls
of flour and mix ln enough Ice water
to make a stiff paste. Then put the
dough on to a floured board and roll
Into a very thin sheet—It should be little
tbtPter tban paper—and cut ln rounds
with a saucer. Bake In a quick oven
on a floured nan. Thc wafers should
have an uneven, bubbly surface and
be eaten cold. They are dellclooa with
a conserve or Jam.
Sandwich Filler.
White raisin bread made Into sandwiches wltb minced nuts and cream
cheeae Is delicious. Cut tbe slices very
thin and spread one with cream cbeese
and the other with the nuta. Both
ahould be buttered flrst. If they are

Tramped Forty Miles a Day.
It was a London policeman who.
referring to the splendid pltysiquj of
ol Dr. Sinclair, Archdeacon of London, whose forthcoming reiiremen.
has been announced, said, "He oug.r.
to be one of us." Dr. Sinclsir sta ds
considerably over six feet in height,
and is broad in proportion. His lather was one of fifteen children, the
shortest of whom waa six feet in
height and the tallest six feel seven
inches. One day the tallest ol the
archdeacon's aunts was accosted by
an Irish linear-woman, who invoked
blessings on her head in the hope ot
alms. Finding her blandishments In
vain, the woman changed her tone,
and exclaimed, "At lea-t ye night
give me your shoe to make a crade
(or my baby." In his days ol greater
leisure, Dr, Sinclair used to ride a
good deal and cycle—he once cycled
Irom London to Thurso, 730 miles—
and he has tramped lor forty mil. s a
day for pleasure for severs! doys in
succession, and even slept out on a
moor in Scotland alter such a walk.
The position of the debutante In
America Is unique, ln no other country is she given so much pleasure and
prominence. In England and France
the young girl Is a uegllglble quantity.
Not so with us, Sbe Is a personage
from tbe moment she makes her bow
to society until the season ends and
she either successfully reaches tbe
goal of matrimony or retires to take
ber place in tbe unnumbered ranks of
the older girl.
Dinner dunces, theater parties, luncheons and afternoon teas lend their
brilliance to enhance her glory. She
Is heralded- and discussed by every
newspaper **n the country. Sbe springs
from the comparative seclusion of
school life! Into the full glare of tbe
social limelight. It takes a steady
head to keep one's poise under such a
fire of flattery, adulation aud excitement Aud unfortunately steady heads
are rare. Bo another type of debutante
has established herself and become the
fashion—a restless, noisy, self absorbed youug creature with Indifferent
She flings herself recklessly into the
mad rush for pleasure, devouring It at
whatever cost. Sbe talks In a vernacular that is often unintelligible to cultured people. She Is lacking ln dignity and good taste.
Tbis Is a sweeping arraignment bnt
all ot us have met this type often
enough to know tbat It bears the outline of truth and sbould point a moral
to tbe girl who does not wish to begin
ber social career under thc banner of
false standards. After all, though
brilliant,,' one's debutante daya are
brief. It may be that their very brilliance and brevity are the spur that
explains the artificial excitement of
tbe modern girl. Yet this manner of
enjoying one's flrst winter Is unwise.
It brushes away wltb relentless
hands the charm and simplicity of
youth; It stifles dreams and Ideals and
makes companions of cynicism and
hardness; lt dulls the clearer, higher
vision of life nnd drags careless young
feet through the ugly marshes of materialism.
lt throws upon life at the very outset a btgbly colored artificial light that
robs a young girl of a proper sense of
values anil blinds her to the soft shadows of fine feeling. Such an attitude
Is as disastrous as It is unattractive.
And the girl who has an eye for the
future, who wishes to garner for herself during three abort dnys of debutante sunshine the cbarma tbat will
carry her safely through the yean
when she no longer holds flrst place,
will bave uone of It.
To this girl Is offered one fact whose
truth is proved. They can't possibly
lie worth the price you are asked to
pay for tbem. Let them go without
regret. Bauer, better, sweeter things
Will come to take their place. The
pleasure that sacrifices one's dignity,
the success tbat kills a secret Ideal,
the good time tbnt leaves the tiniest
spot on a girl's standard of conduct
work barm aud ore never worth while.
The Worklsss Welcomed.
The man wbo is genuinely on the
road looking for work is finding
tilings made easy for him just now
in Berkshire, England, and adjacent
unions in Oxford and Buckingham.
Bread stations are establisued at
easy intervals, and men who prove
they are really searching Ior work
are given "way tickets," which entitle
them to a mid-day meal at these stations.
And then at casual-wards they are
given .-pi-ciai treatment.
The idea is to test the system witb
a view to stamping out vagrancy. For
the tramp there will be no such consideration shown. Indeed, notices
have been stuck up all over Berkshire
requesting the public decline to assist
beggars, and to report all casta to
thc nearest police-station.
Card Etiquette For Married Women.
A married woman calling leaves oue
of her own cards for each woman
member of the household and one eacb
of ber husband's, adding to tbat number one more of the husband's, which
Is for the bost. A woman docs not
csll upon n man, so she does not leave
one of her own tor ber hostess' husband, but the husband's mnst be sent
even tbougb the iwo men may not be

makes formal calls and does not leave

may mean Ibat she no longer Uvea

The Breatheable Remedy for Catarrh.
Tint rational way to combat catarrh
in the Hyomei way, viz., by breathing.
Scientists for years huve been agreed
on this point, but failed to get an antiseptic strong enough to kill catarrh
germs antl not destroy the tissues of
the membrane at the suine time, until the discovery of Hyomei (pronounced Higli-O'iiiH.)
Hyomei is tlte most powerful yet
healing antiseptic known. Breathe it
through the inhaler over the inflamed
und germ-ridden inembrune four or
five times a day, and in a few days the
germs will disappear,
A complete Hyomei outfit, including the inhaler, costs 81.00, and extra
iHittles, if afterwards needed, cost but
50 cent. Obtainable from your druggist or postpaid from tlie R. T. Booth
